Brad Maddox is Fired as Raw GM
THIS KICKED OFF WWE RAW. That is all you really need to know. The Authority does not get much of a reaction from the crowd. They put down Daniel Bryan and his injury, as well as calling out Maddox. He is fired and chokeslammed by Kane.
If WWE wants to make the General Manager role interesting, let Vince McMahon make the decision. It is time for him to return. The product is getting very bad from week to week. This segment stunk. It did nothing for characters that the fans care about.
Evolution defeated The Brotherhood
Goldust and Batista carried the offense in the match, which was actually really good. I thought Batista really did a good job tonight. He was much smoother in move transitions. Orton and Cody came into the ring with hot tags and Rhodes hit a missile dropkick. As he was distracted by Batista, Orton hit an RKO. He hit a second one and picks up the win.
Justin Roberts announces that it is a No Holds Barred Elimination match. Goldust gets beaten down and tossed all over the outside. Orton hits a hanging DDT, but is reversed. Batista hits a spear and Orton hits an RKO. Batista ends in with a Batista Bomb.
Solid segment for WWE to book two guys that the crowd loves and the heels in Evolution. I hope this does something for Rhodes and Goldust, but I doubt it. This was all about spotlighting Orton and Batista. I enjoyed this match and it did more for me than anything so far on Raw.
