Sound Off 498 - RAW FEATURES WORST SEGMENT OF THE YEAR CONTENDER

May 30th, 2017

It's been nearly six years since we've had an emergency midweek Sound Off.  That streaks ends today as Solomonster talks about last night's Monday Night Raw, including that embarrassing "This Is Your Life" segment.  Lest you think it was all negative, there were some positive takeaways from the show as well, but the fact remains, this is a show that's getting worse, not better.  We also have EXTREME RULES predictions and a final warning to WWE.
