Eyes On WWE: Top 5 Wrestlers On RAW

By @TrueGodImmortal

If you haven't noticed, the quality of RAW has improved a little bit over the last few weeks or so. A lot of that can be attributed to the growing number of good matches on the show, while some would give the credit to the booking of some of the top wrestlers on the show. Whatever the case may be, there are a number of wrestlers who make the WWE what it is and truly showcases what RAW should be about. Who are the top 5 wrestlers on the show? Let's take a look.

5. Finn Balor 

-He hasn't quite found his footing on the show yet, but Balor is getting there. Perhaps a heel turn is important. Or maybe, he just need a title shot that pushes him over the top. Whatever the case, Finn is a very good wrestler, and his character has improved much more since joining forces once again with Gallows and Anderson to form The Club. Will Balor gain momentum going into Mania? That remains to be seen, but right now he is definitely top 5.

4. The Miz

-The current Intercontinental Champion is the best all around performer on the show. His promos are top notch, and his match are mostly good. However, when we look back on the period of time that he was out of action, you realized just how important Miz is to RAW. In terms of in ring work, Miz has become top 3 and as a promo cutter, he is easily the best on the show. The only thing keeping him out of the top 3 is momentum and a push, otherwise Miz might be the best on the show.

3. Roman Reigns 

-I am not a fan of Reigns. I have never been. He still isn't extremely over with the crowds, and he still isn't consistent in big match situations, but I can really tell that he's improved in the ring beyond measure. A majority of the good matches on RAW seem to come from Reigns, it just is unfortunate that his matches almost always end with him winning. He's had solid matches with Miz, Seth Rollins, and more over the recent months, but the only thing that keeps him out of the top two is that his character is still ridiculously stale and his promos are still pretty boring. If Reigns can just improve on those last two things, he could actually take the top spot.

2. Braun Strowman 

-The most over wrestler on the roster now. Braun deserves a monster push that the WWE isn't ready to give him. Braun has improved in every way, and despite him not being the best wrestler in the game, he is the most popular wrestler in WWE. That is not something to take lightly considering his roots and where he started from. Braun delights crowds every time he steps into the ring and the crowds go wild. If Braun can get his merchandise and catchphrases to continue catching on, this might end up being the best hope for the WWE to return to prominence on RAW. Well, he's one of the hopes. The other?

1. Seth Rollins 

-It is quite simple. Seth Rollins is the man. He just proved it with the gauntlet match and he's been doing it in the tag team division for RAW. I'll be honest, the only watchable matches at the RAW shows were the tag team title matches that took place during the Shield vs The Bar feud. Seth Rollins has been putting in work for months and has been the most underappreciated wrestler on the show and now that he's able to get back to singles competition, he seems ready to become the MAN once again. If Seth Rollins isn't the WWE or Universal Champion by the end of 2018, the company failed. He is the centerpiece going into the rest of the year.
