Title This: WWE Raw Reaction 4-9-12

Josh Isenberg

R Truth def. Cody Rhodes:

What I Liked:

Same situation from a week ago, as Big Show interrupts the match. Truth scores the easy pin, continuing the downfall of Rhodes. I think that can benefit Rhodes in the long run, having to break the losing ways he has seen the past few weeks.

What I Disliked:

I am already sick of Show/Rhodes. They cannot do much more between the two, and I really do not want to see Show continuing to interfere and Rhodes getting quick defeats each week. It devalues what he did for a very long time as Intercontinental Champion before losing the title at WrestleMania. What is the point of continuing this feud? I wouldn't mind seeing Big Show defending the title against someone his own build, someone that needs a mid card push to stay relevant in the eyes of the fans. I just am not sure who would be fitted to do this.

Grade: D

Santino is looking for the Three Stooges.

Lord Tensai def. Yoshi Tatsu:

What I Liked:

Tensai shows his unique abilities in the ring. His underhook suplex was great, connected with ease. The referee stops the match again, calls for the bell after a choke bomb from Tensai.

What I Disliked:

Once again, we get the match stopped at the end. Tensai still does not do it for me, and is not getting over with the crowd. Is his gimmick ten years too late? I think so, but they will continue to shove him down our throats because that is what creative does. I really would be shocked if many people like this gimmick. He needs a new wardrope change, take those piercings out of his chin, and make him at least look like he is a "Lord", whatever the hell that means. I am sick of stupid gimmicks just to TRY and get guys over. Wouldn't he make a bigger impact if he came out and destroyed Punk, or targeted someone noteworthy? I think so.
