POST-RAW

No matches took place.

Samoa Joe attacked Seth Rollins in the ring; Rollins finally made a comeback.  It was not an actual match.

Seth Rollins then thanked the Newark fans for their support in the past year.

That ended the show.

No return date announced for the venue.


ADDITIONAL CORRESPONDENT DETAILS…

On the PWTorch Livecast tonight, we had three callers who attended Raw give some notes on the show. You can check out the show for free at www.PWTorchLivecast.com.

-They noted there was a beach ball being batted around during the Cruiserweight match on Raw. When security took the ball, there were some “asshole” chants.

-After Roman vs. Balor, many families with kids left. It was clear because of the time of night and it being a school night, some were there to primarily see Reigns. Reigns was booed loudly by the majority of the fans, though.

-There was apparently a dangerous looking move at the end of the Nia Jax vs. Dana Brooke match where it appeared Jax almost injured Dana on a slam.

-During the very long gap between Finn Balor’s ring entrance and Reigns’s ring entrance, which was about 7-8 minutes (due to a commercial and a video package), Balor went to ringside and chatted with fans and shook hands. When Bliss came out before a commercial break, she just stood there in the ring and didn’t do much.

  1. Nia Jax is dangerous in the ring and I am not sure how these much smaller women can get into the ring with her. WWE needs to make her lose weight.

  2. Nia is fine. But Alexa and Baley sure didn’t bring their A game, or B-C-D. I’d love to have heard Vince cussing backstage as they blew line after line and had about as much emotion as a turnip. Hopefully jet lag, cause there’s a line forming in NXT again of ladies ready to take their place.
