Bodeen’s Top 5 Moments: WWE RAW (7/5/21)

Bodeen brings you his Top 5 moments from the July 7 Raw, including another great Ricochet vs John Morrison showdown!




Bodeen brings you his Top 5 moments from the July 7 Raw, including another great Ricochet vs John Morrison showdown!

Monday Night RAW once again came to us from the Thunderdome this week as RAW had its second last show before Money In The Bank as well as the return of live crowds. Despite a slow opening segment that dragged on, RAW managed to improve some of its major problems as it delivered a somewhat solid showing this week with names such a Ricochet, John Morrison, AJ Styles and Riddle stealing the show this week as they delivered and put on some amazing matches leading up to Money In The Bank a week from Sunday.

So without further ado, I am Bodeen Green and I am back to look at the positives as I take a look at the top 5 moments from this week’s edition of Monday Night RAW.

5. Mustafa Ali teaches Mansoor a big lesson   

Mansoor and Mustafa Ali would once again confront each other this week on RAW as they went one on one. Before the match, Mansoor would ask Mustafa Ali about why he eliminated him in the Battle Royale last week on RAW, with Mustafa Ali explaining to Mansoor that he did not want Mansoor to end up like him. Ali would dominate the early part of the match, wearing down Mansoor with holds, yelling advice to Mansoor throughout the match.

Mansoor would later get some offence in against Ali, send Ali to the rope. When rolling to the ropes, Ali foot would get underneath the bottom rope. Rather than using this to his advantage, Mansoor would help his opponent free his foot from the ropes. Ali would then roll up an unaware Mansoor for a win out of nowhere.

While this was a short match, it told a great story with Mansoor’s inexperience costing him the match. Hopefully, WWE have a long term plan for this storyline has it has great potential.

4. Lucha House Party and Mace and T-BAR put on a solid performance  

While it was nothing special, Lucha House Party and Mace and T-BAR would put on a solid match in the short time they had with each other. Early in the match Lucha House Party would use their agility against the two big men, keeping their distance using kicks to try and wear their opponent only for T-BAR to catch Lince Dorado in mid-air hitting the Lucha House Party member with a backbreaker.

T-BAR and Mace would use their power throughout the match to dominate the Lucha House Party during the match with the Lucha House Party getting cut off throughout the match whenever they would try and make a big comeback as Mace and T-BAR showcased their power. Late in the match Mace and T-BAR would attempt High Justice on Lince Dorado with Gran Metalik making the save, sending Mace outside. Lince Dorado would capitalise on this and would pin T-BAR for an upset win.

Even though the match itself was nothing too special it was still a good showing for the two teams, especially as both teams a hugely underrated. Hopefully, both Lucha House Party and T-BAR can continue to have good showings such as this one and can gain momentum.

3. Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston  take on a returning MVP and Bobby Lashley in tag team action 

The main event of RAW, this week would see the in-ring return of MVP after MVP spent several weeks out with a knee injury as both teams would try and get the upper hand leading up to Kofi Kingston’s WWE Championship against Bobby Lashley at Money In The Bank. Xavier Woods and MVP would start things off for their teams with Woods getting the early advantage for The New Day. Kingston and Woods would keep MVP away from the WWE Champion, Bobby Lashley, however, it would only be a matter of time until MVP was able to tag in Lashley with Lashley taking out Kingston to swing back the momentum.

Both teams would fight back and forth throughout the match with neither team getting a major advantage for too long until Kingston hit a series of moves against MVP for multiple nearfalls. Kingston would then get ready to hit MVP with the Trouble in Paradise only for Lashley to interfere from the apron, allowing MVP to hit Kingston with a clothesline for a nearfall. MVP and Lashley would try and finish things with MVP tag in the WWE Champion, with Lashley hitting a chokeslam on Kingston, only for Xavier Woods to break up the pin, saving the match for his team.

Lashley and MVP would tag each other once more, only for Kingston to hit a Trouble in Paradise on Lashley, with Woods following it up with a dive from the steel steps onto Lashley. Kingston would then reverse a Playmaker attempt from MVP, hitting Trouble In Paradise for the win in a solid match event with Kofi Kingston getting the upper hand ahead of his WWE Championship match against Bobby Lashley at Money In The Bank.

2. AJ Styles takes on an injured Riddle  

Despite having his injured foot attacked by AJ Styles and Omos in the opening segment and having his tag team partner, Randy Orton missing, Riddle would fight through his injuries to take on AJ Styles in a great match, with Riddle doing a great job in selling his injured foot throughout the match with Riddle feeling pain after he jumped over the ropes during his entrance. Riddle would start things slow against a cocky Styles, keeping his distance, not allowing Styles to go for his injured foot, but it would only be a matter of time until Styles would get a chance to attack Riddle’s injured foot, giving him the early advantage.

Styles would continue to inflict pain on Riddle’s injured foot, cutting off Riddle’s offence throughout the match. This would lead to Riddle thinking outside the box and performing a crane stance, with Styles mocking Riddle for it only for Riddle to nail a kick, followed up with a gutwench suplex to get back into the match. Riddle would continue to fight back against AJ, escaping a submission hold to hit a Bro-ton for a close nearfall. Riddle would then use the playbook of his tag team partner, Randy Orton and would hit the hanging DDT on Styles, however, Styles would quickly regain the advantage after he moved out of the way when Riddle attempted moonsault causing further damage to Riddle’s foot.

Styles would then attempt to hit the Styles Clash on Riddle but would then be distracted by The Viking Raiders, Ivar and Erik as they surrounded Omos outside the ring. Riddle would then use the distraction to his advantage, rolling up Styles from behind for the win, with Riddle gaining huge momentum heading into the Money In The Bank ladder match. Later in the night, it would also be confirmed that the Viking Raiders would take on Omos and AJ Styles for the RAW Tag Team Titles and Money In The Bank. While there has not been much of a build for this match, both teams have the potential to put on a great match for the titles.

1. Ricochet and John Morrison steal the show once again 

After Ricochet and John Morrison, stole the show last week with their amazing match and ended in a double countout, both men would do the same this week on RAW as they put on an amazing opening match that was arguably the best match on the card. Ricochet would get the early advantage on Morrison, trading his high-flying offence for strikes early in the match against Morrison. Morrison would then trade strikes with the one and only as both men held back on their high-flying innovative offence as they tried to get the early advantage against each other.

However, it was only a matter of time until both men showed off their innovative offence as Ricochet tried to use the Miz and his wheelchair to get the advantage on Morrison, only for Morrison to hit a powerbomb on Ricochet against the barricade. Morrison would keep piling on the offence against Ricochet, hitting Ricochet with a Spanish Fly for a near fall. Ricochet would later fight back against Morrison, hitting a clothesline only for The Miz to distract Ricochet with the drip stick allowing Morrison to roll up Ricochet for a tight near fall. Both men would continue to push each other to their limit with Ricochet hitting a flying crossbody whilst Morrison was on the ring apron to send both men outside the ring. Both men would struggle to get inside the ring, with Morrison getting in the ring first. This would allow The Miz to block Ricochet’s path to the ring leading to Morrison winning via countout in an amazing performance from both men.

This was a great match that did a good job in reviving RAW after a long and slow opening promo segment that seemed to drag on. Later in the night, it was announced that both men would have one final match against each other next week on RAW, before Money In The Bank with the match being Falls Count Anywhere. This is sure to be yet another amazing showing for two underrated and underused talents heading into Money In The Bank.

These were my top 5 moments from an improved edition of Monday Night RAW this week. What were your top 5 moments and what was your favourite match from RAW this week? Let us know in the comment section down below.

Greg DeMarco’s Good, Bad, & Ugly: WWE Smackdown On FOX (November 3, 2023)

It’s the go-home show for WWE Crown Jewel, and Smackdown is in full force! As is Greg’s Good, Bad, & Ugly review!



WWE Smackdown John Cean Solo Sikoa

It’s the go-home show for WWE Crown Jewel, and Smackdown is in full force! As is Greg’s Good, Bad, & Ugly review!

WWE Smackdown On FOX sends us home for the Crown Jewel premium live event, so it has to be strong. But is it? Maybe it’s Good. Possibly it’s Bad? I sure hope it isn’t Ugly.

Let’s find out!

If you haven’t checked out Mitchell’s Results & Review for this episode of Smackdown, go and check it out now!


  • Roman Reigns & LA Knight In Ring Promo – Last week LA Knight got the better of Roman, so it made sense for Roman to get it all back this week. And he did just that. “Redneck Cosplay of my cousin” was a fantastic line from Roman Reigns, but “I ain’t here to finish something” from LA Knight got a bigger reaction from me. Roman calling himself the megastar was also a phenomenal line. Good stuff all around.
  • Kevin Owens vs. Austin Theory – Kevin Patrick keeping “The 150 million hit man” schtick going for Austin Theory is so great. Milk that for all it’s worth! “What is your issue with Kevin Owens’ face?” “LOOK AT IT, MAN!” Absolutely brilliant shit. “How’s that feel, idiot?” Grayson Waller should be on commentary every week, for every match. And this match, by the way, was really good. Austin Theory has settled into his current role, showing he understands the WWE cycle. And Owens is Owens.
  • Backstage Series Of Events – We had the Bianca Belair interview where she was attacked by Damage Ctrl, followed by The Street Profits & Bobby Lashley running into Logan Paul and then B-Fab. Flowed well, no issues for me.
  • Chelsea Green & Piper Niven vs. Shotzi Blackheart & Charlotte Flair – No surprise that Charlotte Flair was the partner, and no surprise that Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn made an appearance. This was a perfectly fine TV match–didn’t set the world on fire, but also wasn’t Bad or Ugly. This was a step in this story, and an effective one.
  • The Brawling Brutes vs. Pretty Deadly in a Good Ol’ Fashioned Donnybrook! – Shout out to Sheamus, whose return I look forward to seeing. With Ridge really coming into his own, we’re to the point where all four of these guys range from good to great to fantastic on any given night. Putting Pretty Deadly into any “manly fight” is always guaranteed entertainment. Really, Pretty Deadly in anything is typically guaranteed entertainment. Pretty Deadly picking up the win was not a shock, although I’d have loved to see Butch and Ridge Holland pick up a win here. Given the rules (or lack thereof) of this match, Pretty Deadly basically won clean here.
  • Rey Mysterio vs. Logan Paul Crown Jewel Weigh-In – A very effective way to pretape something, which saves time as part of a double taping. It was essentially a go home promo, but done in a different way. I liked it. It also smoothly transitions into the rundown of the card by the commentary team, which I always appreciate.
  • Bianca Belair vs. Bayley – If you know me, you know that Bianca can be hit or miss for me. She can’t “work with anyone,” but she can definitely work with Bayley. Bayley, of course, is money with anything she does. Both women delivered a main event quality match, and no one should complain that Bianca Belair won. She’s challenging for the Women’s Championship in less than 24 canon hours, so she needs to win. Bayley is a made woman, losing here doesn’t hurt her one bit.
  • “Just Enough Nick” Nick Aldis Usage – Triple H has done an amazing job of establishing Nick Aldis. Three weeks in and he already “belongs.” Much of that is attributed to how Aldis carries himself. But they are also using him to the right degree. It’s not too much, but it’s also not too little. Adam Pearce could miss two weeks of Raw and when he shows back up, it all makes sense. For Aldis, he needs to be very present, but not overbearing or “shoved down our throats.” They have the right balance.


  • Solo Sikoa & John Cena In Ring Promo – John Cena, lost voice and all, completely buries Solo Sikoa. He “cooks” Solo, as promised. And, as Cena does, he makes Solo look like crap. Bargain Basement Tazz Rip Off? C’mon man, you’re better than that. But here’s the real problem: what happens if Solo loses? Cena made him look like a loser, and then proves that he is? Solo has to win this match. If he doesn’t, and Cena is gone, then Solo is left out in the cold. And you don’t want to do that to Solo Sikoa at this point of his career.


  • Misstep for Theory – Referencing Halloween as if it hadn’t already happened. You can edit this episode–c’mon, man!
  • Kevin Owens’ Crotch Chop – C’mon, man! We’re better than crotch chops in 2023.

The Verdict

  • Good – 8
  • Bad – 1
  • Ugly – 2

In all honesty this was a damn good show. Milwaukee showed out considering they’d already seen 2 hours of Smackdown before this was taped. Good on them, and good on WWE for a great go home show for Crown Jewel.

Interesting of note – the pictures for this show that are posted to the WWE website are uploaded in the order the matches and segments were recorded, not the order in which they aired. Just a little tidbit that I found interesting.

Greg DeMarco’s Wrestling Ratings Report: Monday Night Raw (10/30/2023) & WWE NXT (10/31/2023)

Greg DeMarco takes a look at your Monday and Tuesday night TV ratings. What do they mean? Do they matter?

Greg DeMarco takes a look at your Monday and Tuesday night TV ratings. What do they mean? Do they matter?

Settle in for a look at this week’s ratings for WWE Monday Night Raw and WWE NXT Halloween Havoc Night 2! Both were up against some stiff competition–let’s see how they fared!

WWE Monday Night Raw (October 30, 2023)

  • Hour #1 – 1.466 million viewers, .44 demo rating, #6 for the night on cable
  • Hour #2 – 1.450 million viewers, .46 demo rating #5 for the night on cable
  • Hour #3 – 1.256 million viewers, .39 demo rating, #8 for the night on cable

WWE Monday Night Raw for October 30, 2023 faced some stiff competition on Monday night. You had Monday Night Football as normal–which aired on both ESPN and ABC–along with the usual peripheral shows (Monday Night Football Postgame, Monday Night Football Kickoff, SportsCenter, and the Monday Night Countdown, which factored into the Top 10). 6.851 million people watched Monday Night Football on ESPN, a number that more than doubles when you factor in ABC.

What does it all mean? It means that outside of Monday Night Football–on cable–WWE Monday Night Raw was the top rated show. If you take away all things NFL, Raw finishes #1, #2, and #3 for the night. Viewership did drop off for our 3, but that’s the 10 PM hour that sees kids go to bed and people checking on the Monday Night Football and World Series games.

Speaking of which, that’s another factor to consider–the World Series! 8.126 million people watched the World Series on FOX (not really that good), with another 8.356 million watching Monday Night Football on ABC (yes, more than the World Series) for a decent-at-best Lions vs Raiders match-up.

In summary, it was another successful night for WWE Monday Night Raw, which was the go-home edition of the program. You can check out my Good Bad & Ugly look at Monday’s Raw, where I gave the show an overall “Good” rating. Haven’t watched yet? Give Mitchell’s live coverage a read.

Listen to this week’s edition of Bandwagon Nerds!

WWE NXT Halloween Havoc Night 2 (October 31, 2023)

  • Entire Broadcast – 674 thousand viewers, .20 demo rating, #6 for the night on cable

WWE NXT (Halloween Havoc Night 2) for October 31, 2023, had to deal with a myriad of external factors this week. First is the most obvious–it was Halloween! Many people had plans, Trick-Or-Treat escapades and more. That right there will be a detriment to any ratings results. Add in two live NBA games, each drawing over a million viewers for TNT. Combine it all together and WWE NXT was the top rated program that wasn’t sports programming on TNT or ESPN. Hell, the entire Top 12 consisted of ESPN and TNT sports programming, plus NXT.

It’s easy to call this a failure since viewership was lost week over week. But that’s very shortsighted. The fact remains that NXT was among the most watched programming for the night, holding its own against live sports and sports-peripheral programming.  If you’re WWE and USA Network, you’re nothing but happy with these results.

NXT, of course, featured the second week of Halloween Havoc, headlined by Ilja Dragunov defending the NXT Championship against Carmelo Hayes in the third match of their trilogy. Along with that you had The Creed Brothers in a Tables, Ladders, and Scares (Chairs) match with Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo, Lola Vice vs. Kelani Jordan in the finals of the Women’s Breakout Tournament, and much more.

I’d call the Tuesday program a ratings success. My Good, Bad, & Ugly review of NXT Halloween Havoc Night 2 is available here, where I called it “Good” overall. If you haven’t seen the show yet, check out Mitchell’s play-by-play.

As the weeks roll on, I will compile some historical data and look more about week-over-week (and beyond) patterns in all of my ratings reports.
