The Raw that followed the best pay-per-view of the year was always going to feel like a step down, but last night's episode was actually on par.
The Daniel, Brie and Kane segment reeked of Deja Vu, but at the same time it was a really good backstage piece. Brie's screams were annoying but it held together well and set up what is set to be Kane V Daniel II at Payback in a Buried Alive match.
The Shield were the main attraction of this week's Raw after Dean Ambrose lost his United states title in the opening match, a 20-man battle royal to Sheamus and Triple H then informed them that they were in six-man tag action later that night against The Wyatt family.
The Wyatt family got the win after Evolution's distraction, and again Evolution picked apart the men who beat them the night before at Extreme Rules meaning it is pretty obvious there is going to be another re-match from Sunday night at next months pay-per-view.
Evolution even had the audacity to use The Shield's triple power-bomb against them as they performed it on Roman Reigns and left him covered in blood in the centre of the ring. The backlash is set to be epic!
Bad News Barrett also defended his title last night, having better luck that Ambrose as he retained after the Bullhammer to Big E. Meaning there are still two British WWE Champions with the European tour right around the corner.
Los Matadores and 3MB continued their on-going feud as El Torito hosted a celebration after his WeeLC victory and they seemed to take offence, Hornswoggle and Torito again went at it with Torito again coming out on top as 3MB and Hornswoggle were thrown from the ring.
As I said, last night's Raw had it all, except a divas match, where were the women? Paige and Tamina had an incredible match at Extreme Rules and it seemed that the Divas Division had finally taken a turn, then 24 hours later WWE completely skip over them and act as though there was no division at all.
Santino and Fandango were even in action last night but there was no Emma and No Layla. The only diva present on Raw last night was Brie and she just screamed, acted scared and ran away..a lot. Although Emma and Paige did get a mention from Zeb Colter as he talked about his deportation list, but he was silenced by débutante Adam Rose as he and the Exotic Express made their way to the ring to rid it of him and Jack Swagger.
John Cena didn't make an appearance but it was announced that he would address the Wyatt family tonight on Main Event and Sheamus would make the first defence of his new title on Friday Night Smackdown.
Looks like the road to Payback is set to be a bumpy one.
