Welcome to another WWE Raw Deal review right here on TJRWrestling. This is the last Raw before the WWE Super Showdown event on Thursday. I will have a preview of that up on Tuesday afternoon most likely and then I’ll write a review of it on Thursday afternoon as well. This Raw is in my home country of Canada in Winnipeg. I’ve never been to Winnipeg, but I know that WWE running Raw there is very rare, so I expect them to be a vocal crowd.
Live from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, this is the Raw Deal for episode #1396 of Monday Night Raw. Follow me on Twitter @johnreport. Please visit TJRWrestling.net daily for our regular updates on the wrestling business featuring WWE news coverage, insightful columns from our team along with reviews about wrestling’s past and present. Thanks to Melo Man for the banner up top. Let’s roll.
I’ll be back shortly after 8pmET for the live review.
