What began on a dull note, ended the year quite well as WWE Raw finally picked up its game over the last couple of months courtesy a much-needed change in the creative production team, prompting the writers to finally pick up the slack. Nevertheless, regardless the see-saw fortunes, there were some major highlights over the past year on Monday Night Raw, with some of them occurring even before the upswing in both creativity and the ratings. Now, we know that remembering the key moments from the good, bad, ugly and all the rest in-between that went down is quite a task.
Then again, is there any need to fret when you know that we've got your back. From Batista and Sasha Banks to Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns — here are 7 superstars who grabbed the top 5 moments on WWE Raw:
1.) Batista attacking an aged Ric Flair
Just the way this was set up made it a bit difficult to watch, with Batista brutally assaulting his once close friend, Ric Flair, to gain Triple H's attention, claiming that he was the only man that Hunter has never beaten in a singles match. Of course, this led to a bloody (literally speaking) showdown between the two at Wrestlemania 35, ending in The Game being victorious over The Animal, probably doubling as a swansong for the latter.
2.) Sasha Banks returns
Sasha Banks returned to active in-ring WWE competition after a long sabbatical, sending fans into a tizzy, only to leave them shocked moments latter after she viciously attacked once dear friend, Natalya. Of course, The Boss has been on a trailblazing run in Raw ever since, forging a dominant reunion of the Boss and Hugg Connection with former teammate and current SmackDown Women's Champion, Bayley.

3.) The Fiend arrives
Bray Wyatt has always thrived on the dark side, arguably being the only WWE star who has carried the theme the best after The Undertaker. So, it came as a sinister treat for everyone when he began teasing his new persona, The Fiend, and the moment The Fiend was unleashed on Raw — Finn Balor being the unsuspecting victim — was surely a sight to behold, with fans finally relishing the prospect of another superstar able to carry a dark character.
4.) Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey's parking-lot brawl
Things were heating up to a crescendo in the months leading to Wrestlemania 35, and all hell finally broke loose when Charlotte, Becky and Ronda had to be escorted away in handcuffs to restrain their seething tempers, which still didn't manage to contain them as the trio broke out into a no-holds-barred brawl in the parking lot.
5.) Roman Reigns' good news
The WWE Universe and millions of fans worldwide were left shattered after Roman Reigns announced that he was taking time off to battle cancer. So, it was indubitably the highlight to end all highlights on Raw when the Big Dog returned with the good news that he's in remission and ready to reclaim his yard.
