One person is to blame for Monday's episode of RAW being one of the worst

It's safe to say that this Monday's episode of RAW didn't sit well with fans as many took to social media to claim that it was one of the worst in recent memory.

It's easy to see why that was the case. Fans wasted no time in ripping the show to shreds which felt like a placeholder with nothing of genuine value to add to the show. 


The writing side of things mainly took a beating from the fans on social media, with many claiming that the low standard was even worse than what they're used to seeing on a weekly basis.

The main culprits came down to the manager of AOP, Drake Maverick, as well as Dean Ambrose.

Recently, WWE has adopted a urinating gimmick with Maverick where this week, the forced humour saw the general manager of 205 Live urinate on Bobby Roode's robe.

That wasn't all. The fact that they had Dean Ambrose getting needle shots on his backside didn't really benefit a storyline which is about a bitter heel turn and Seth Rollins looking to exact vengeance following the sad real-life exit of Roman Reigns.

Again, the writers have received a lot of the blame on social media.


However, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer has revealed that on this occasion, they shouldn't be getting the blame as their fingerprints weren't on the show as usually, Vince McMahon approves of their ideas but it was different this week.

Posting the news in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Meltzer claimed that Vince became restless during the show and then ended up writing most of the show by himself - so the blame falls on his shoulders.

According to WrestlingNews.co, Meltzer posted: "And yes, Vince McMahon got restless and wrote much of the show himself,” Meltzer wrote during his Raw recap in the Observer.

It's not clear just what Vince was getting restless at, but his ideas didn't exactly translate into quality entertainment this week as the fans weren't having any of it.

Perhaps the lack of a Universal Champion played a role, alongside Braun Strowman, but the build hasn't been too exciting heading into TLC.

Thankfully, the Royal Rumble event is around the corner and with that always being an exciting time of the year, the quality of episodes will also pick up.

What do you make of the fact that Vince McMahon wrote the majority of the show himself? Have YOUR say in the comments section below.
