WWE Monday Night Raw "January 11, 2016" Review - AVClub

AVClub: There’s a strange pacing to this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw that has a lot to do with the main event. That main event: Roman Reigns facing off against a handful of heels, a cruel riff on Roman’s “One vs. All” motto by the Chairman and CEO, Vince McMahon. That match is just another in a long line of “insurmountable obstacles” being thrown at the WWE World Heavyweight Champion week after week. While there’s the potential for the constant stream of “against all odds” booking to get tiring and too ludicrous, it works tonight for an interesting reason: by not building the entire show around the main event—in fact, it’s hardly mentioned all night—much of the rest of the card feels important. Sure, the pacing is off-putting at times, but it’s also nice to see WWE switch up its formula.

The story is too old to be commented.
