The Authority Bid Farewell the WWE Universe
I was really hoping that this new ex-Authority era in WWE would kick off without them, but apparently not. I know it's a logical way of following up the pay-per-view, but please let this be the last time we ever have to sit through a long talking segment from them opening Raw. Furthmore, Triple H's comments toward Sting didn't give too much away which was good because there's plenty of time to go back to that before WrestleMania in March.
Daniel Bryan Addressed Team Authority
Bryan's return was a pleasant surprise and giving him the reins of Raw for a night was a smart move considering he still can't do anything physical. The segment lasted a little longer than it should have, but they set up a lot for the rest of the show in terms of what each member of the team would be involved in. Again, a 30 minute talking segment to kick off the show isn't preferable, but it accomplished quite a bit.
