My Take

 

Tonight's episode of Raw seemed to drag on forever. Since the expansion to three hours, many people - myself included - have questioned whether it's too much. This is a case where it was. The England crowd was hot at the start of the show, but they died out for a good portion of the middle before coming back to life for Wade Barrett and the main event. There just wasn't enough strong material to carry a show like this. WWE crammed 10 matches onto the show, presumably to get everyone on the card and make the most of flying them all to England. On top of that, this episode basically rendered last week's Raw completely irrelevant, as the Survivor Series lineup was completely modified. There are more issues at hand than are appropriate for this forum, but there are some logistical challenges WWE simply needs to get a better handle on before the product will completely thrive again.
