Last night’s edition of WWE Monday Night Raw took place in Washington D.C. and was the final Raw before WrestleMania 30 on Sunday in New Orleans. We give you what was the good, the bad and the dirty from last night’s show.

The Good

1) John Cena Promo: It was a good night for Cena. The first time we seen him out was when he stood in the ring with the Wyatt’s in Duke “The Dumpster” Droese garb and a sheep’s mask after Bray Wyatt’s match with R-Truth. Cena then cut an emotional backstage interview with Renee Young telling her that,”You will see fire, you will see hell, and you will see rage and John Cena will be a monster.” Behind the nonsensical Jimmy Buffet reference a few weeks back, Cena has cut some very good promos heading into Wrestlemania. Wish we would see more consistent promos from Cena in every program.

2) Opening Segment: I was very down on what WWE did last week making Brock Lesnar look weak again with The Undertaker. It was a very smart move by WWE opening with Taker and Lesnar to combat the series finale of “How I Met Your Mother”. Liked when Taker used the line, “there are three things that can’t be beat: Death, Taxes, and The Streak. That line made it seem how important The Streak is to everyday life. Paul Heyman was his usual spot on self comparing Lesnar winning this Sunday to Hulk Hogan defeating Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania 3. Liked how Lesnar walked around the ring and thinking about whether to get into the ring with Taker. Was smart for Heyman to distract Taker with Lesnar giving a vicious clothesline and the F5. Only bad thing was I wish Lesnar would have done another F5, but this segment left fans with some doubt of whether The Streak will continue on after Wrestlemania.

The Bad

3) Piper’s Pit: Roddy Piper felt that he should be on Wrestlemania 30 and do a Piper’s Pit with Hulk Hogan due to the happenings at Wrestlemania 1. Well, thankfully we got this last night. Piper looked lost a couple times in promoting the Andre the Giant Battle Royal. The eye gouge was awful and unnecessary. This was a waste of time and their could have been a better way to promote the Battle Royal.

4) Big E vs Alberto Del Rio: This doesn’t get a bad due to the match, as it wasn’t horrible. This was bad to the finish. The logic behind the Intercontinental champion losing a non-title match to a guy who hasn’t won a lot of matches in awhile. Big E should be defending the title instead of being in the Battle Royal. All titles should be defended at Wrestlemania as you can always throw guys in the Battle Royal to fill the ring.

The Dirty

5) Closing Segment: This a good dirty. Behind a few things, this was looking like a dreadful show heading into the final segment of the show. The Batista vs Randy Orton match was a good match considering what we have seen from Batista since his return in January. Liked how Bryan came out through the crowd and attacked Triple H. It was good to see Bryan get the better of Batista and Orton as well as it gives the fans hope that he will walk out of Wrestlemania with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Thought it was a smart move by WWE to keep Bryan off of last week’s Raw as it meant more last night as Bryan got the biggest pop of the show. Will Bryan win the title on Sunday? We will find out.
