Hold tight because the show is not over. A lot of WWE fans will tell you that one of the company’s biggest problems is Monday Night Raw being three hours long. I can’t say I disagree from a fan’s standpoint as that’s just a long time to watch anything every single week. That being said, the show is not over when the cameras go off and that was the case again this week.
We are less than four weeks away from WrestleMania 36 (you may have noticed the big sign) and that means the company needs a big match to build the show around. This time around that would be Royal Rumble winner Drew McIntyre vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship. As a result, McIntyre has gotten a heck of a push and that seems to be continuing even after the show.
According to PWInsider.com, Seth Rollins stayed in the ring after Monday Night Raw went off the air. McIntyre came out and hit Rollins with a Claymore before saying that he would take the title from Lesnar at WrestleMania 36. Both McIntyre and Rollins wrestled on Monday Night Raw, with McIntyre defeating Erick Rowan and Rollins losing to Aleister Black via DQ before being on the winning side of an eight man tag.
They had busy nights. Check out what the two of them did on the show:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that makes a lot of sense for WWE. One of the most important things that WWE can do with McIntyre is not overexpose him, so putting him on TV in limited amounts is a good idea. Therefore, letting the fans see him after the show goes off the air gets the live crowd on his side without going way too far. This is a smart move and WWE might even be able to pull it off at WrestleMania.
