( - WWE Pay Per View (PPV) Wrestlemania is 20 days away...that under 3 weeks WWE Universe!  That means that RAW needs to come with it to make sure everyone is excited about the biggest PPV for the company.  The PPV Roadblock was only a decent showing, and did not add any new wrinkles to the Wrestlemania program.  This RAW did a little more excitement building for Heavyweight title for the upcoming PPV, and added a few more possible matches in the fray. 

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:
