WWE finished out a four show stretch in Chicago with Raw–who stood out?
WWE Raw was live on November 25th, and the landscape of Raw seems to be changing before our eyes.
The Third Star for WWE Raw: Charlotte Flair and Asuka (tie)
In another edition of the match that, in my opinion, should have main evented WrestleMania 34, Charlotte Flair and Asuka delivered the goods in the ring once again. This time Charlotte is the babyface and Asuka is the heel, and both are embracing their roles in the best way possible. The added dynamic of Kairi Sane and Asuka’s green mist made this match even better, and this is a feud I can get behind.

The Second Star: Rey Mysterio
After The OC attacks Humberto Carrillo, the focus shifted towards naming a new #1 contender, and Rey Mysterio emerged from the 4-way as that man. In the match against AJ Styles, the third of a time-eating sequence on Raw that was really entertaining, Rey got some help from Randy Orton in thwarting Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows to capture the United States Championship, the second of his storied career.
Monday’s edition of The Reaction!
Honorable Mentions: Kevin Owens, Andrade, Buddy Murphy, Aleister Black
The First Star for WWE Raw: Seth Rollins
Seth Rollins, complete in a black suit, cut a promo that seemingly turned him heel. Paul Heyman loves his shades of grey, but when you add in the Authors Of Pain attacking Kevin Owens and leaving him for Seth to finish off, and the promo Seth cut, it seems like a move towards heel is the plan. Seth aligned with the AOP is something I can get behind. People want to hate Rollins and love Owens, and that is a story that can carry Raw’s main event when Brock Lesnar isn’t around.
In hockey, a game’s “Three Stars Of The Night” represent the top three performers of the night. For more clarification, I defer to this Pittsburgh Gazette explanation:
“The tradition dates to the 1936-37 season, when Imperial Oil became the principal sponsor of Hockey Night in Canada radio broadcasts and was seeking a way to promote one of its products, Three Star gasoline. The idea of doing so by selecting the top three performers in a particular game purportedly came from a Canadian advertising agency.
Many clubs do recognize the player with the most three-star selections with an award or trophy, usually in conjunction with a corporate sponsorship, at the end of the season (or sometimes, each month). All six Canadian franchises, for example, have an affiliation with a well-known brewery.
The NHL keeps track of its own Three Stars Of The Night selections, but that is done on a league-wide basis. The league employs a system that awards 30 points to a first star, 20 to a second star and 10 to a third – a running total can be found on the league’s website – but it does not present an award based on them.”
In hockey tradition, the first star represents the best of the three, but all three are considered to be receiving a high honor.
