What Happened At WWE Raw?

It's time for the weekly run-through of the action from the biggest TV show in wrestling.

Monday night's WWE Raw saw a lot happen, even if it wasn't always in the way people most wanted. Let's take a look at the top moments from the show.

The Shield Reunites




We've seen it coming for weeks. It's been teased and drawn out and hasn't necessarily felt like a great build or anything, but The Shield are incredibly popular as a group, making for a situation people are going to be happy with regardless.

Still, remember the gravity of the breakup and compare it to the reunion. Sure, it got a good reaction, but it didn't feel like it had the sense of importance I'd have expected the eventual reunion to have.

The TLC match is now set with The Shield taking on Cesaro, Sheamus, and The Miz. It should make for great action if nothing else.

A New 205 Champ




Rush, rush, rush. That's the way the cruiserweight division works. After a new wrinkle is added, it becomes the dominant thing and is rushed into a fizzle.

Kalisto should have been in the 205-pound division from the jump. That said, Kalisto finally joining didn't need to result in an immediate title reign. That's doubly true if they shoot the title back over to Enzo Amore at the TLC pay-per-view.

Still, this was as fun as an Enzo Amore match gets and there is a bit of a sense of importance at 205 for the time being.

Baby steps.

Step On Up, Emma -- Get Kicked In The Head




Emma won a Fatal 5-Way match to win the honor of being Asuka's first victim when she debuts at TLC.

They've got great chemistry, so I'm all about the match happening. As with any debut, it's important to see if they figure out how to handle a new member of the main roster, especially someone as special as Asuka.

Sister Abi... Naw, I'm Good




This whole thing is dumb. Bray Wyatt is probably a lost cause outside of potentially taking him off TV for an extended period of time.

I know there has been so much talk of creative thinking the Wyatt character is bulletproof. But he's riddled with bullet holes from where I'm sitting.

The WWE's decision to send a cease-and-desist letter to the Young Bucks for their use of the "Too Sweet" hand gesture -- seemingly in retaliation for the Bullet Club's "invasion" of RAW -- has at least led to some fun banter on Twitter.
