3 WWE Superstars impressed and 2 who flopped

3 Superstars who impressed and 2 who flopped
WWE RAW once again delivered an underwhelming output. A face transformation, a new tag team, and a major shift in the WWE Championship planned for WrestleMania Backlash were among the few positives. The remainder of the segments were mediocre at best, and none of the top talents involved benefited from them.

In this post, we'll look at the superstars who inspired us and those who didn't on WWE RAW this week.

Randy Orton Impressed on WWE RAW

Randy Orton was partially responsible for half of the redeeming moments on tonight's episode of WWE RAW. Last week on the Red brand, he had a fantastic match against Riddle. The Viper was pleased enough by Riddle's success that he agreed to accept the former's proposal to join the R-K-Bro tag team.

Orton said he'd team up with Riddle if they defeated former tag team champions Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin during a backstage interview on WWE RAW. The four superstars then faced off in the night's most exciting match, with Randy Orton looking fantastic throughout.

He easily dominated both of his opponents and put on a ridiculously entertaining show inside the ring. Orton was ruthless, but his timing with Riddle was astonishing. As a tag team, they were successful, but The Viper stole the show. His crushing power slam on Benjamin left him motionless in the middle of the ring for a few seconds at one point.

Orton's face turn was also confirmed during the match. Fans are looking forward to seeing two superstars with divisive personalities team up as a tag team. Their interactions were hilarious, and WWE RAW is supposed to be a fun show to watch. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for R-K-Bro on the Red label.

Elias Flopped on WWE RAW

Elias teamed up with The Miz and Jaxson Ryker to take on Kofi Kingston, Damien Priest, and Xavier Woods on WWE RAW this week. This game dragged on for too long and became boring after a while. There were sporadic action-packed moments in the match. Elias, unfortunately, took the brunt of it, as he came off as the match's worst performer.

Despite his appearance as a strong contender against all three of his opponents, Elias' position was primarily limited to putting Priest over. He deserves praise for a job well done, but the writers should devote more time to his character on WWE RAW. He hasn't had a decent win on the Red brand in quite some time. Instead, he is continually praying to the show's poor bookings.

On WWE RAW, the burgeoning feud between Ryker and Elias as well as The New Day will account for a good rivalry. This would encourage the creators to experiment with Elias and Ryker as a tag team. The Drifter could use a good run alongside the latter, who has had his fair share of impressive moments inside the ring. Hopefully, they will be involved in more matches that will enable them to demonstrate their strength.

Braun Strowman Impressed on WWE RAW

This week on WWE RAW, Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman paired up to face T-Bar and Mace. The two superstars then faced off in the main event of the show, providing an exciting showdown between the two powerhouses. Strowman eventually triumphed, earning the right to challenge Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania Backlash.

Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman put on a well-balanced match in which they both took equal punishment. The Monster Of Men shocked the audience with a suplex off the top rope at one point during the match. He also had counters for Drew McIntyre's Claymore that he came up with himself. Strowman battled well for his title shot on WWE RAW, despite interference from MVP, T-Bar, Bobby Lashley, and Mace.

The WWE Championship match at WrestleMania Backlash will now feature Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre, and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match. The Monster Among Men deserved this chance, particularly after undergoing a complete transformation and honing his in-ring skills in order to compete against WWE RAW's most agile monsters. At the forthcoming pay-per-view, Bobby Lashley will face off against two equally dangerous challengers.

Mandy Rose Flopped on WWE RAW

Mandy Rose, a WWE RAW Superstar, isn't having the best of times on the Red brand. She made her first appearance this week, interfering in a six-woman tag team match that also featured Nia Jax. Mandy Rose and her tag team partner Dana Brooke came with a bucket of water and threw it at Shayna Baszler. There's no point in guessing that Jax will dash forward and fall once more. Despite the diversion, Nia Jax's team won the match.

Rose's former best friend and WWE official Sonya Deville confronted the pair after the match for their prank. Charlotte Flair had previously been reinstated from her WWE RAW suspension by Deville. Deville set up a match between The Queen and Mandy Rose as a punishment for her. Rose appeared dominant just a few times during the encounter, which was underwhelming.

The match was uninteresting in every way, allowing Charlotte Flair to win with ease. Rose had a few moments of brilliance, but the match remained one-sided. Rose's status as a strong contender should have been developed a little earlier by the WWE RAW creative team. She's in a rivalry with the reigning Women's Tag Team Champions, but her latest booking has consistently put her down.

Things should improve soon, especially because the women's tag team division is in desperate need of credible challengers.

T-Bar Impressed on WWE RAW

Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre unmasked Mace and T-Bar last week on WWE RAW. Past RETRIBUTION members have returned with a vengeance tonight. Mace and T-Bar were pitted against Braun Strowman in a two-on-one handicap match first. The Monster Of Men, on the other hand, won the match by disqualification after T-Bar and Mace launched a vicious attack.

On WWE RAW, Drew McIntyre came to Strowman's rescue, and the two fought T-Bar and Mace in a tag team match. T-Bar stood out with his outstanding performance tonight, despite the four superstars putting up a good fight. Within the arena, he exuded confidence and posed a genuine challenge to the former world champions. After McIntyre and Strowman clashed at ringside and couldn't make it back in time, Mace and T-Bar won the fight.

Drew McIntyre also put T-Bar through a lot of punishment. Within the squared circle, their exchange hinted at a potential rivalry between the two WWE RAW Superstars in the near future. T-Bar needed a match on the Red brand to demonstrate why he had been promoted to the main roster. At the moment, he seems to be having the right kind of drive. On WWE RAW, hopefully, the imaginative will maximize his potential.
