Angry at this week's episode title? Well, give this podcast a listen, and hopefully all will make sense. MANY fans were irritated last night over Chicago's attempt to "hijack" Raw. But their attempt largely failed due to some masterful story telling by the WWE (beginning with the excellent Paul Heyman). They manipulated the Chicago audience by delivering everything that they wanted to see... with the lone exception being CM Punk.
Despite Chicago's failed attempt to ruin Raw, they showed up again to deliver great responses to the Usos, Dolph Ziggler, Aaron Paul, and most of all - Daniel Bryan. Daniel Bryan was a made man last night in Chicago, and thanks to the crowd's adoration of him, the heat on HHH and Stephanie McMahon has never been hotter.
Put simply, Chicago could've been a disaster for the WWE. Instead, it was a darn good show, all without Punk. Listen to our thoughts on the show!
