( - Time to get momentum for the WWE Pay Per View (PPV) Fastlane into high gear.  Time to hammer out those story lines to make the PPV between the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania mean something.  Well, this RAW is memorable because of good matches, and unfortunately, Daniel Bryan retiring! He gave a great and heartfelt goodbye as well. 

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:
