WWE Raw – Episode 1557 (03.27.2023) (Wrestling Review)



Phoenix, Arizona

March 27th, 2023


Singles Match
Becky Lynch (w/Lita & Trish Stratus) vs. IYO SKY (w/Bayley & Dakota Kai)

A good match here with two women that can wrestle when given the time. Iyo is one of the best high flyer women WWE has currently and Becky can always put on a good match. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Seth Rollins vs. Mustafa Ali


.5 / 5

Eight Man Tag Team Match
Braun Strowman, Ricochet & The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) vs. Alpha Academy (Chad Gable & Otis) & The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar) (w/Valhalla)

A fine match that’s ending was great. Odd to have the teams team up and fight again so close to Wrestlemania especially given this could be better than that match. 

2.75 / 5

WrestleMania Showcase Qualifying Tag Team Match
Candice LeRae & Michin vs. Chelsea Green & Sonya Deville

This was over in under 3 minutes. That should say enough. 

1 / 5

Singles Match
Rey Mysterio vs. Damian Priest (w/Dominik Mysterio)

A 3 minute match that was more for Dom to interfere leading their WM match. Wish they had something for Priest to actually do. 

1.5 / 5

Non Title Match
Dolph Ziggler vs. Gunther (w/Giovanni Vinci & Ludwig Kaiser)

Not a total squash as Ziggler got something in but Gunter dominated from there on out. Ziggler pretty much is just a squash guy anymore it seems. 

1 / 5

Singles Match
Cody Rhodes vs. Solo Sikoa (w/Paul Heyman)

Mixed bag on this one. It was a good match but I’m not huge on this being Solos first loss. Granted its to someone who will likely be champ in a weeks time and Solo isn’t gonna be ruined by this but still. It works for the story though giving him his first loss to mess with Reigns mind a bit. 

3.5 / 5
