I'm not really surprised tbh. They're both really strong promos and Shane is at his best as a heel combined with Miz finally turning face (and people realizing for the first time he's actually a naturally nice person) makes a big difference.

War Raiders was a stupid name and so is Viking Experience. I don't mind the individual name changes. Hopefully they drop "experience" from the name in the coming weeks.

people online are going to obsess over their name and only the name instead of being happy for them getting called up or anything else. personally im already "ok dumb name itll get changed or it wont lets see how well they work on raw". I don't think it's that big of a deal.

He got drafted to Raw in 2008. He feuded with Kane and then returned to Smackdown the next year.

Alexa has been a tweener in a number of segments the last couple of months. The idea is less she's a face and more that she is trying to push whoever shes withs buttons IMO. Like an interviewer would.

Not watching the show yet but from what I read, I don't really like the War Raiders getting called up yet.  They have plenty of capable teams on the main roster and keep making makeshift teams anyway.  They could've kept War Raiders/Undisputed Era going back and forth a little bit more, now you leave UE with other unready teams, unless they show up at this rate in the shake up too.

Now, the War Raiders did seem like a team that would get rushed through and injuries held them back but it just seems odd.  I also am not really a fan of any of the name changes to them or the team.  Wasn't attached to War Raiders but Viking Experience just doesn't click at all.  Their individual names will grow on me but I guess I just don't understand why they are changing the "brand" of the team right when they seemed to be getting their niche in NXT.

I see WWE heard all the criticisms about how Lacey Evans has done nothing to deserve a title shot so they're going to fix that by giving her one win.   Over Natalya.

I can't recall a Raw segment in years that I have been so audibly pissed off at than the War Raiders name change. War Machine to War Raiders was enough, but this went into a whole different area of stupid. This seemed all so booked on the fly I can't even explain it. Were they brought in on a last second shift with some talent not making it into Raw? I just can't believe this was thought through ahead of time. Felt like a last second Vince call on all levels there. Not only was the name shifts fucking terrible, but I swear there was no mention of them being the current NXT tag champs? To not even have them with their belts was also confusing as hell. Is NXT becoming a regional territory to Vince that he refuses to accept them as they are? Cuz the last handful of talent callups makes me wonder if talent is now completely being held against them for being over on that brand. I guess time will tell but I expect them to be treated much like AOP. Really sad because if they brought these guys in at the right time (which is not now) they could get over huge. But Vince fucked them over right from the get-go.

After all was said and done, Raw once again seemed to get the edge on the trades like it seems every year, but time will tell after the show tonight. I would imagine alot of talent who lost last night probably will go to SD (once again illustrating the lack of giving a fuck about quality of talent on SD) and then a few who were already Raw talent but then got put over last night (Braun particularly) will move too. The big move will probably be Roman I'm guessing.

WWE is apparently claiming that Vince McMahon will announce "the biggest acquisition in Smackdown history" tonight which likely means either they're getting Roman, or Vince is gonna heel it up and call himself the biggest get in SD history.

Supposedly there was a Samoa Joe segment last night that got scrapped due to Joe being ill.

Wonder if they are going to make a trade to get Joe to RAW, as without the IC belt, Finn seemed like a good candidate to Smackdown.  They just need to keep a midcard belt on each show.

Was also worried if they would do something screwy with Woods now that Kofi is champ and Big E is hurt and will be out a little bit. Maybe this gives him a chance to go after whatever midcard belt is on Smackdown.

One weird thing is I assuming Eric Young is one of the new RAW jobbers, wonder if Wolfe goes to the UK brand.  See if Dain gets a singles push.   Guessing it’s confirmed his wife Nikki Cross and Heavy machinery will be on Smackdown.

Also, stirring the pot as the lone EC3 fan, Meltzer made a tweet indicating after his appearance last night, WWE hasn’t worked so hard to not give someone a chance to get over since Low-ki, in his opinion.

After all was said and done, Raw once again seemed to get the edge on the trades like it seems every year,

There's been two (aside from the original draft) since they restarted this and I think SD has had the edge both times:

To Raw: Apollo, Miz/Maryse, Dean, Hawins, Bray, Kalisto, Heath/Rhyno, Alexa, Mickie, David Otunga

To SD: Byron Saxton, Jinder, Owens, Zayn, Colons, Tamina, Charlotte, Sin Cara, Rusev/Lana, The New Day


2018:
To Raw: Jinder (and Sunil), Riott Squad, Owens and Zayn, Ryder, Breezano, Natty, Mojo, Dolph, Drew, Corbin, Mike Kanellis, Ascension, Roode, Gable

To SD: Jeff Hardy, Mady Rose/Sonya, Joe, Sanity, Cass, Asuka, Gallows/Anderson, Cesaro/Sheamus, Truth, Almas and Vega



I think SD given the extra hour Raw has to fill has done well.
