WRESTLING RECAP: Playtime Williams breaks down WWE Raw from 08/24/15

( - 1 night after Summer Slam (SS) Pay Per View (PPV) and the results are still buzzing in the WWE Universe.  Some pretty memorable wins and loses, for the previous night, but social media clung to one story.  Guest host John Stewart interfered in the title match!  RAW has everyone's attention, but will they capitalize on it?

This particular episode of RAW was one of the most well written episodes I have seen in a long time!

Some things I still need to happen in the WWE Universe:

  1. Bring back the Cruiser Weight Division
  2. Make all the matches mean something to some sort of belt or rivalry.  
  3. Show more of the roster.  You guys recycle the same talent too much.
  4. You may wish to consider bringing the Diva's division full circle and have them with Tag Title belts, lightweight belts, etc. 
  5. The Tag Team Division is starting to look better than the singles division.  Get more people graduated from NXT and get that division showcased more. 

Here are the highlights of the show:
