AVClub: You know Monday Night Raw is in a sorry state when even the simplest of episodes seems noteworthy. That’s the case with tonight’s Raw. After a few weeks of middling storylines, with WWE seemingly taking the holidays off and forgetting that they had upwards of 6 hours of television to book, tonight’s episode finds a nice groove by getting back to basics. While there’s really only one huge moment with serious implications, there is a plethora of actual wrestling matches on the show, which is a refreshing change of pace. Tonight’s Raw is the most wrestling-based episode in quite some time, and while nothing rises above the mark of “that was a good match,” the consistency is remarkable in comparison to Raw’s of week’s past.
