Monday Night Raw (May 8) and Smackdown Live (May 9)

The Monster Among Men has a booboo.
I'm combining Raw and Smackdown this week because essentially, nothing happened.

Oh, technically, Cesaro and Sheamus are now officially challenging the Hardy's for the tag titles, but we all knew that was gonna happen. And technically, Golden Truth had a failed redemption storyline that will probably lead to their retirement or breakup, but who gives a shit?

On Smackdown, Kevin Owens cut a great promo, another edition of The Fashion Files made me laugh despite my better judgment, and Nakamura Vs. Ziggler is official for Backlash, but we all knew that was gonna happen anyway.

Everything else was water-treading and time-wasting. I'm not sure if it's because these were UK shows, taped in advance, or because of the uncertainty (in the case of Raw) caused by Braun Strowman's injury, but both shows were complete nothingburgers.
