That Lana-Rusev divorce paper signing just went on FOREVER and was a new candidate for worst segment in Raw history.  These two make no sense.  I think they're forgetting half their lines and just babbling.  Then Rusev is playing it for comedy half the time and then seriously the other half.  I don't even get his reactions.  He's doing some goofy comedy babyface gimmick in the middle of what's supposed to be a red-hot blood feud with Lashley over his woman.  It's just new levels of terribleness.

Then the Street Prophets were just buried for some bizarre reason.  They get squashed by the Viking Raiders early in the show, then come back later to do some bizarre "Weekend Update" sketch that was so painfully unfunny.  Their initial backstage segments seemed to be at least partially written by them in their own voices, but last night was so bad I don't see how they can ever come back, especially if they're supposed to be taken seriously by an urban demo.  

Vince is just absolutely drowning and no one will tell him.  Last night hit new lows...again.

I walked passed the tv during the Sami / Mojo / Steen segment and that was terrible. Mojo looks terrible in his ring attire and is just as uninteresting as ever and can someone tell me why Sami and Kevin are on opposite sides again ?

Just because Owens turned babyface out of nowhere and Zayn is still a heel.  Also, Elias and Lacy Evans, both excellent heels, are now babyfaces with no turns.  they just showed up as faces one day.  The hours that WWE staff work are insane and yet it always looks like zero effort is put into the creative.  It just makes no sense.  What are they doing while "working" 24 hours a day?  I'm betting trembling in fear of Vince getting mad at them and not much else.

Now the newest thing that makes no sense is that Zayn has the old "manager's license" which magically allows him to appear on both brands.  But no one else can, not even a real manager like Heyman.  OK.

Yeah, unbelievable.  They don't have enough tag teams on each brand to just bury them in a one off match on tv.  Especially these guys, who have never had the titles before and were new and interesting.

Yeah, in the early part of the segment, he's laughing and joking, then later he loses his temper and starts screaming at Lana like some heel.  The audience didn't know how to react to that one.  
What a mess.

If I didn't know any better, I'd honestly think that they (especially Rusev) was intentionally tanking it to try to get fired.  But I hear he's into it and Vince likes the segments.  I just don't get it.  How is he not being reamed for not taking the angle seriously?  How is this what Vince wants?

Again online people are crying about this angle but the fans are eating this up, and it is super over and getting huge reactions from the crowd and again Rusev is super over again 

Now for the Street Profits you are right they got crushed and then do a Weekend skit like WTF who is booking it like it makes the Streets Profits looks like jokes but to be honest since they been called up they have looked like jokes and side act.
But again the problem with RAW is simple the are a stuck ship, when Brock has the title everybody is aimless, like Seth vs Kevin Owens fued rudderless, Randy Orton vs AJ Styles rudderless, Drew Mcintrye rudderless.
The Tag Team division they don't know how to book fueds in the tag team division and do the same oh snap we have a pay per view coming up book all four teams that are not the champ and the winner gets a shot bs.
It is sad

Not defend WWE creative, but Lacey Evans did turn face on TV. After her "epic" feud with Natalya, Natalya chose Evans as her mystery tag team partner out of respect. Then they had the match in Saudi where they were both faces.

I'm not sure what you're listening to but you could've heard a pin drop for most of that segment.  There were a couple of muted "Rusev Day" chants at the beginning, absolutely nothing like we used to hear 2 years ago.

Again you don't like the fued it is fine, but don't lie and say it is not getting a reaction and i was at RAW in November in Uniondale and Nassua and beside the Fiend coming out in dark match this was the most over reaction the whole night even over Brock vs Rey.
and it is getting the most youtube hits, it is what it is i don't know if it has more to do with how beautiful lana tits looked last night but the video is already over one mil.

I have no idea how to compare YouTube clicks from that segment compared to any other, but I know what I'm listening to on TV and no one seemed that into anything on the show last night.  I was in New Orlenas WM weekend when fans were chanting "Rusev Day" at 2am up and down Bourbon Street and it was absolutely amazing, and I know he's not getting those reactions now.

https://www.fightful.com/wrestling/wwe-raw-129-viewership-down-ratings-18-49-demographic-nearly-identical-last-week

Top 5 Most Viewed WWE Raw (12/9) Videos On YouTube  Rey Mysterio vs. AJ Styles (1.6 million viewers)  After divorcing Lana, Rusev slams Lashley through a table (1.5 million views)  Seth Rollins joins AOP in a brutal beatdown of Kevin Owens (646,000 viewers)  Kevin Owens unloads on Mojo Rawley with steel pipe (590,000 views)  Seth Rollins delivers scathing rant against the WWE Universe (442,000 views) Remember Rey vs Aj didn't finish on USA so WWE directed fans to watch on youtube...and now Lana vs Rusev is number one and higher today, fans love this angle  it is at 2.2 million views 

now maybe some of those ratings have to do with Lana looking so rawable last night but something has to give for the huge youtube response this angle is getting

It doesn't matter the subject, anything with boobs in the the promise of boobs automatically gets the clicks. If WWE still did bikini videos, those would be the highest rated videos by a long shot. I guarantee it's not the angle that's bringing the views.

Why did they make Rusev cut so much weight? He looks terrible. He's one of those guys that absolutely need to be on the gas. Also, how did they explain Lana dropping her Russian accent? I haven't watched a minute in about two years so I'm behind on even the most basic stuff.
