Is this the last match already, or do they have something big planned for the Raw Women's Title? Maybe, a return of Becky(yay) or Rousey(boo)?

No idea. Seems this might be it.

ONLY possible reason to see Vince do this is to give McIntyre has day in the lights at Mania. But this way is just stupid.
I think that's the reasoning, just not a fan of taking this route. I'm guessing either a triple threat between Drew, Miz and Lashley at Mania or they have Lashley win the title from Miz between now and then. Either way, McIntyre/Miz is not a draw, IMO.

I really barely follow WWE at all anymore. I will check in every now and again but aside from Reigns it all just feels so stale. And even with him its obvious there's no real endgame or long term plan in mind. They've got a great character but not a great angle.

NXT no longer really interests me. Ot once felt new and exciting bit...eh. AEW I check out but I feel like it's settled into what it is now and have kind of lost the excitement.

I don't know. I'm just not super into wrestling at the moment.
It's funny to hear that things are stale "aside from Roman Reigns", considering how people felt about him not long ago. Reminds me of 2011 when I had to tell a buddy of mine (who had already pretty well checked out of pro wrestling some years prior) "I'm not kidding one bit when I say this, Mark Henry has gotten very entertaining". I had never once previously found him entertaining......not in Nation of Domination, not when he impregnated Mae Young.....etc. But damn if he didn't catch fire seemingly out of nowhere in Summer of 2011.

I've checked out AEW a few times since I found out Sting was there. Haven't really seen anything that has just absolutely hooked me, but if I'm home between 7:00 and 9:00 PM on a Wednesday and think about it, I will put it on. I have noticed that I'm no more into Jon Moxley than I was when he was Dean Ambrose, even though supposedly Vince was holding him back with silly storylines or whatever. Maybe it wasn't just Vince...

Whether someone is into AEW or not, I really struggle with this take (of course everyone is welcome to their opinion).

To me, Moxley is a way better character than Ambrose ever was and every promo he has cut as Moxley has been pure gold. In about a year and a half, he has won dozens of awards from various magazines and websites, and is also a main reason why the "forbidden door" seems to be open now. He seems to be one of the most popular wrestlers in the world right now.

Whatever one's opinions are about WWE and AEW, I think it is clear that Vince absolutely held Ambrose/Moxley back. Heck, Moxley has been pretty open about some of the horrible/offensive ideas he had to fight against during his final year in the company.
