Taz thought last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW was pretty good overall. He’d recommend that people watch it if you haven’t already because there were a number of good matches on this show, but unfortunately a lot of the finishes were very predictable.
He points out that although starting RAW off with a match is usually a nice change, he actually liked that a promo segment opened the show last night because seeing Samoa Joe in that opening spot is rare. He thought Joe cut a very good, passionate promo and everything that came out of his mouth was very believable in Taz’s opinion.
When Roman Reigns finally responded to Joe’s demands and made his way to the ring, Taz thought this would have been a good chance for WWE to refrain from playing Reigns’ entrance music. He points out that entrance music isn’t alway necessary, and this particular segment would have been better off without Reigns’ music in Taz’s opinion.
Taz loved the physicality between Reigns and Joe when they finally interacted in the ring, and he enjoyed that Joe was highlighted here. Overall, he thought this was a very enjoyable segment that made for a great opening to RAW.
