Greetings for another RAW In A Nutshell, and the big news this week? John Cena is back in Beantown!

Yes, John Cena is back on RAW, but there is more going on in Beantown, naturally.

We’ve got the latest fun for the Bloodline, with Solo Sikoa squaring off against Kevin Owens.

Plus, our main event of Jimmy Uso and Sami Zayn, so buckle up for that one.

Will we finally see old friends reconcile?

If that weren’t enough, there is Seth Rollins set to confront Logan Paul.

So, in case you haven’t been putting two and two together, we might just see two or three more WrestleMania matches made tonight.

Seems like a pretty loaded show, even if John Cena wasn’t back in Beantown…but he is.

No more time for delays…it is time for…

RAW In A Nutshell: John Cena Back In Beantown!

Let’s crack open this Nutshell!

Best Match of the night:

Forget the match. It was the post-match sequence.

Jey looked like he ditched Jimmy. Hugged it out with Sami.

That got a MASSIVE pop.

But, especially for us at home, you could tell Jey was giving a bit of distance between him and the former Honorary Uce.

Like…enough room for a super kick.

The Uso split was short-lived, and then we had all three brothers beating down Sami.

Perhaps the bigger surprise is we had Cody make the save…but they are milking KO for at least a few more days.

Worst match of the night:

Dolph and Omos.

I really hope that Lesnar and Omos surprises us…in a good way.

Like, pretty please do not be Undertaker-Giant Gonzalez.

Crowd Chants of the Night:

I won’t repeat it here…but let’s say Boston has no love lost for Logan Paul.

Star of the Night

Any guesses? C’mon, we did have a few choices tonight.

Cena was strong, no shock.

But once again, Jimmy and Jey and Sami win the day.

Spot of the Night:

Jobber of the Night:

Dolph gets the nod here.

Although…Corbin working on another losing streak? It does deserve consideration.

Upset of the Night:

I’d probably go with Johnny Gargano over Finn Balor.

Holy Sh** Moment of the Night:

I expected Cena and Theory to be made official. It was.

However, I did not expect that scathing promo from John Cena.

It’s like, tear him down, to perhaps building him back better?

We have a six woman tag: Trish, Lita and Becky take on Damage CTRL at WrestleMania.

Now…will Lita and Becky drop the belts before? Or will we somehow get the tag champs working two matches, since we were told for sure that Rousey and Baszler were winning tag gold in Hollywood.

LOL Moment of the night:

Carmella and Karen..I mean Chelsea Green…getting confronted by Asuka, who ran down to the ring in heels.

The Princess of Rhode Island (where she’s really from…) bailed, leaving Chelsea to get the blue mist.

Maybe it’s me, but that was funny.

If that doesn’t do it for you?

And if that does not do it either? How about Boogs and Elias…which resulted in Elias getting a match next week.

Against…Bronson Reed.

Noteworthy Moment:

Not sure I love this…but maybe I don’t hate it either?

I remember a point in time where Logan Paul was supposedly the face, which was…odd.

Now? Not a chance.

100% heel, with a solid segment between he and Seth Rollins.

Overall lowlights:

We had a few jobber type matches, so I guess I could go there?

Maybe a little bummed that while John Cena introduced Cody Rhodes…that was it.

OK, it wasn’t it…the ending made up for that.

Overall highlights:

I knocked the way too brief moment, but I can admit that even having Cena and Cody hug it out was pretty cool.

Edge is back, looks like Balor and Edge becomes official next week.

Logan Paul and Seth Rollins? Lock that one in.

Cena and Theory? Holy cow that was a promo.

After the final bell:

Boston was a hot crowd tonight, and we had a bunch of strong segments.

Cena back in Beantown was electric, but so much more about tonight was too.

Closing RAW with Jey and Sami hugging it out…only for Jey to break Sami’s heart? Nice touch.

That action definitely did one thing-removed all love Sami had for Jey and vice versa, clearing the way for a certain tag title match.

Now that Jimmy and Jey are on the same page…what’s Friday going to be like for the Bloodline?
