Monday Night Raw is in the books for another week. We’re five weeks out from the Royal Rumble on January 29th, 2017 at the Alamo Dome. What does the build up for this event look like for the Raw brand?

  Unlike years past, this episode was not terrible. The WWE tends to go on autopilot this time of year and phone in the last couple shows of the year. This year, they’re letting the stories flesh out some more which, despite mostly flawed results, is better than holiday themed matches that mean nothing.
