This week's edition of WWE Monday Night Raw was a completely different event with Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley tearing the house down, AJ Styles turning heel and reforming "The Club," "The Phenom" Undertaker addressing Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre, Samoa Joe teaming up with Viking Raiders to face "The New Day" and more. This was the first episode with Paul Heyman as the executive director of WWE Monday Night Raw.

It was quite evident as we saw a lot of surprises and shocking heel turn as well. WWE announced last week that Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff have returned to WWE in a brand new role to restructure the infrastructure. This was a big step by WWE to improve the ratings and compete with other Wrestling promotions like All Elite Wrestling (AEW), New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), Ring of Honor (ROH) and Impact Wrestling.
