Seth Rollins opened Raw by saying what a lot of fans have been saying over the past couple of weeks; WWE Raw sucks.
Rollins took General Manager-Elect Baron Corbin to task for allowing Raw to sink to new lows, week-after-week. Rollins chastised Corbin for putting The Revival in Lucha House Party rules ("whatever that is") matches, for allowing Brock Lesnar to remain a part-time champion (Lesnar's last match on Raw was in 2002), and for condoning public urination. Rollins stated that "talent support, the morale backstage, the fan support and the TV ratings are all at an all-time low."

Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp and Alex Pawlowski called the Nov. 26 episode of Raw, "the fifth night wrestling has died" after one of the most lackluster Raw's in history. Corbin defended the episode on a recent edition of Heated Conversations with Booker T, saying, "Just because they are the loudest, does not mean they are the majority. It's good that people speak their minds. But it's my show. If you want to change it, come and try." You can check out Corbin's full quote here.
Last week's episode of Raw hit another viewership low, averaging just 2,285,000 viewers across the three hours.
