Monday Night Raw is the flagship show of WWE and has produced many magnificent moments throughout its time on television. Raw has showcased the best storylines and matches the company offers in WWE’s history. However, recently, you could argue that Monday nights have become a bit stale, and WWE needs to do something about it.
The Booking Of Raw
It is that time of year between SummerSlam and Wrestlemania where there seems to be little storylines before building up to the showcase of the Immortals. A prime example is that significant stars on Raw, such as Cody Rhodes, are not involved in any major individual storylines, as he recently won the tag belts with Jey Uso. Nevertheless, it looks like WWE are getting him ready to dethrone the Tribal Chief at Wrestlemania 40 and are just trying to fill time until then.
In addition, it seems like we get a similar situation every week where a Babyface opens at the show, and Judgement Day interrupts them, resulting in the Babyface’s friends coming to save them and setting up the main event for that night. Due to the lack of good storylines on the program and similar main events every week, it could make fans want to turn off Raw for the time being.
The lack of the Women’s Division
Another major problem with Raw these days is the lack of TV time given to the female superstars; for example, there is no storyline around the women’s world title. The most relevant female title on Raw is Becky Lynch’s NXT women’s title. For a three-hour show, this is a problem as there are many great performers in the women’s division. Names such as Zoey Stark, Chelsea Green, and Natalya come to mind. There are some potential great storylines in that division. Furthermore, it would be great to see them play out on TV.
It is difficult to fix his problems now as WWE probably will be getting ready to build to mania. However, WWE could make some slight tweaks to improve the show.
