The WWE had one last chance to promote Wrestlemania on their flagship television show last night. Raw was held in Atlanta -- the host city of last year’s Wrestlemania -- at the Philips Arena where just about a year ago the “once in a lifetime match” was made between The Rock and John Cena.

Raw had that “big-time” atmosphere last night just six days before Wrestlemania 28. All night video segments...

Last night’s Raw in Philadelphia featured more of the same: lots of talking and very little action between the stars who make up the three biggest feuds going into Wrestlemania.

 We’re three weeks away from the biggest wrestling show of the year, WrestleMania XVIII. Time for me to start talking about the show. Here’s some thoughts from last night’s build up to the event on Raw:

Last night’s Raw was built around the “John Cena Rap vs. The Rock Concert” as the two Wrestlemania opponents squared off in a battle of musical talents. The overall motif of the show made sense as Raw was in Cleveland, the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I felt Raw was strong but it fell flat compared to the last few weeks, which haven been excellent. The WWE always revs up the product...
