The RAW announcing team is KILLING the show. They bury Emma and turn her into an instant joke, not to mention she debuts in a dancing contest instead of, um let's see...a WRESTLING MATCH!!!! Lawler mentions the HOKEY POKEY and, BOOM, Emma as a character is done in the WWE. It's a shame since she is one of the best wrestlers and personalities on NXT. Also the whole "bad dancer" gimmick of hers developed organically over a period of time and wasn't shoved down the audience's collective throat in a 3 minute throwaway segment on RAW.

I honestly believe if the NXT writers wrote RAW for 6 weeks there would be vast improvements across the board and we wouldn't have our intelligence insulted for 3 hours on Monday nights.

I really think WWE is doing this on purpose, so they can justify not giving him a title run in late 2013. They say "you want the YES chant, do you"?, then they give it to us 3-4 times per show, until we get sick of it (I already am). Then when that gets predictably stale, they say "But that's what you wanted".

Funny thing is that IMO, Bryan's best feud right now is with The Authority, not with any of the actual wrestlers. But when Hunter and Steph keep flip flopping between bad & good and Bryan keeps giving promos with a smile on his face, after getting screwed over, it takes the steam out of the feud.
Bryan is a drifting ship with a catchword and no direction.

More specifically, Lawler is killing the show. From the corny one-liners to the outdated references and awkward interactions he has with wrestlers, his time has passed.
I know Renee Young has been wanting to be part of the main announce team, I'd like to see WWE give her a shot, with Michael Cole. Hopefully, they do it straight up, not heel/face commentary.

I think if they evolve Bryan's char he can become more effective. He can work in the ring and he has avg mic skills. His char has evolved in the past year if you think about it. He used to have "anger issues" and they have moved away from that. He is young and thats what the WWE needs, not some tired 40 plus vet.

I saw yesterday how he buried Bad News Barrett with his crappy joke that literally no one laughed to.

Yeah, that was awful and more importantly, there was no need for it. It was a burial for the sake of a burial. They spend weeks giving Barrett some much needed traction, then sweep the rug out from under him in 10 seconds. Makes me scratch my head. Why bother with this character if you're just going to dump on him, for no reason?

Lawler should have been fired years ago. He is atrocious at his job. And that's being kind.

Cole is atrocious. I wish they'd just do away with the face/heel commentators. All they do is bicker back and forth about the exact same things every single show.

The WWE Network and the WWE App plugins sometimes make Raw unwatchable. Oh and the uh, commentary rambling about nothing. Even jbl is stale.

Maybe they're waiting for WrestleMania to bring out a new belt. I agree, it looks really stupid, and I don't know why they go with the unified title name when two belts still exist.

Best part was when HHH/Stephanie hit the ring and the CM Punk chants broke out, the. When DB came out sounded like there was a mix of Db/CM punk

didn't know the shield vs wyatt was set up for Chamber. Really think its not been given enough time to grow unless they want to keep it going til Mania, which wouldn't make sense as then Bray isn't available to fight Cena

I think they should split the titles again. I still call it the "WCW" title, its iconic, if they get rid of it that would be crap. It has a timeless design, plus they just came out with this design for the WWE belt so i don't see them ditching it.

I can see Miz's new shtick getting old pretty quickly.
