WWE RAW Highlights From 6/27
Thank You, Cena
Spoilers: there are no lowlights this week. Yes, there were less-than-stellar moments, like Ezekiel’s second brother’s debut being pushed back due to time running over. However, this was as fun and monumental as RAW gets, all thanks to John Cena.
The show from start to finish was a love letter to one of the greatest to ever do it, and the impact he had on the show was immaculate. We were graced with a fantastic video package, and many interactions with different WWE stars backstage that ranged from the comical, yet heartfelt with Ezekial and the Street Profits, to the tantalizing with Rollins and Theory.
And all of this came before the real show-stealer, a masterclass promo that had the arena come unglue before falling apart emotionally. There was no match set up, no angle, just a thank you from fan to superstar and superstar to fan. For anyone who loves wrestling, it’s hard not to love someone like Cena get this kind of love, especially since he was denied that due love for much of his career due to poor booking at times. A segment and a night that comes once every few years, and only Cena could be deserving of such fanfare.
A Great Opener
There’s some weird booking happening with making Riddle win a battle royal to qualify for a match others only had to win a singles match for. But, this match was a blast to watch, fueled by a crowd that was incredible all night. It featured some great spots, highlighted by Ricochet hitting a hurricanrana off a ringside ladder back to the ring for an elimination. But the real highlight was the ending between AJ Styles, the Miz and Riddle. The crowd was into everything here. When Riddle won, it felt like a pay-per-view moment.
Becky Closes the Show
Becky Lynch is a phenom in WWE, and I couldn’t believe it when it truly felt like she was the only one who could end a show that saw John Cena return and have it not feel like a lame-duck finish. The final match was above average, but mainly, it was a showcase for Lynch and got me pumped for the Women’s Ladder match, which was all it needed to do. It’s a shame some of the others in this match won’t be in MitB, especially Baszler and Doudrop, but I have to give WWE a nod for closing a show this big with their Women’s division, and even more so by doing it by underlining their trust in Lynch.
AEW/NJPW’s Forbidden Door PPV wows, headlined by the debut of Cesaro (Claudio) in AEW and Jon Moxley becoming interim champion.
Adam Cole and Dax Harwood respectively injured at Forbidden Door, continuing a streak of poorly-timed injuries for AEW.
