Most Notable Absence: Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson

While Finn Balor is preparing to challenge for the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania, Gallows and Anderson missed this week's episode of Raw. While it makes sense as there didn't seem to be any place for them on the show, they could've used the Good Brothers in a match as a tune up for the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, if WWE plan to put them in the match.

Most Notable Return: SmackDown Live Women's Champion Charlotte Flair

After missing last week's televised shows due to oral surgery, Charlotte Flair returned this week with a victory over Natalya, which was followed up by her thwarting Carmella's attempted Money in the Bank cash in and a loss in the final of the Mixed Match Challenge, along with Bobby Roode, to The Miz and Asuka. With WrestleMania this Sunday, can Charlotte Flair end Asuka's streak?
