Jim Ross enjoyed a few things about the Raw after Wrestlemania.
In his blog, Ross discussed Monday's episode of Raw. He acknowledge this episode annually features a rowdy crowd of Wrestlemania attendees who stay for Raw and sometimes Smackdown. Ross says he appreciated the enthusiasm of the audience but could see how some would be annoyed by the antagonizing audience. The night was filled with the returns of a few wrestlers. Matt and Jeff Hardy returned to WWE at Wrestlemania 33 and won the Raw Tag Team Championship. Ross blogged about their return and another Attitude era star.
"The Hardy Boys, in their established, WWE personas continue to get strong, positive reactions. Happy for Matt and Jeff that they can come home at this stage of their careers. Kurt Angle as the new, RAW GM is a smart booking. The 2017 HOFER will be a big time 'get' for the RAW brand. I think that it also sets in motion, if desired, for a retirement match with Kurt vs some lucky talent would be a great attraction in NOLA for WM34," wrote Ross.
Raw also featured the debut of The Revival and the return of Finn Balor. Ross saw positives throughout the episode of Raw.
"Big fan of Dawson and Wilder aka Revival and am happy to see them on RAW. Two, good pros who have more than earned this opportunity on the flagship broadcast. (Enjoyed) the main event that closed the three hour show as I'm a fan of all the men involved in the tag match...Great to see Finn Balor back in the ring and the fact that Owens, Joe and Rollins were all in the desirable, show closing segment encourages me," wrote Ross.
Both The Revival and Finn Balor were victorious on Monday, as were The Hardys. Ross also wrote about the interaction between WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman, as he indicated in the blog he has been a long time proponent of the slow build of Strowman.
