AVClub: After a few weeks of competent booking and some solid wrestling matches, tonight’s Raw settles into a more predictable and complacent pattern. The majority of the show lacks any momentum whatsoever. Raw can work when there are a bunch of matches that don’t carry a lot of stakes, but tonight’s matches are not only meaningless in terms of larger storytelling, but also fairly boring. While the last few shows haven’t done a ton of building towards Battleground outside of about two feuds, they at least contained compelling, stand-alone matches. Tonight’s Raw is more barren. By the time we get to the final hour of the show though, all the boredom and stagnation is almost worth it.
