I’ve been watching wrestling since i was 5 but have really watched it every week consistently for 2 years
The following is from Greg
Dave attacked by Legacy is one thing, but no save from Flair or Cena was stupid. The rest of the show was meaningless, pretending to be business as usual after the senseless beatdown. How does WWE get so many people in the stands when such horrible stuff gets presented?
Miz is funny, which is good since Morrison is so hot by just wrestling alone. But dammit,and Jimmy Yang are also very funny yet they’re stuck in jobber status. Every single superstar has their own unique gimmick, but WWE tries to repackage our favorites as crap. Maybe tickets & merchandise sales over decades justify putting crap on TV whenever you want time off.

I have to say that tonight was a step in the right direction, eben though they can’t lose a Superstar a week to keep it interesting!
In order of appearance:
Orton beating Batista down was great, even though te injury was well documented and could be seen coming. I do not personally like Batista at all–his ring work is worse than Cena’s and he no sells most everything–and I got the feeling once they wheeled him out and Orton had the belt, even though Orton has had it for a while, like, "Ahh, back to normal" and I was cool with that.
Kofi is great–Regal just stinks. Squash match and would it hurt to give Kofi another finshser?
The Divas are just awful nowadays. I miss the days of Mickie and Trish.
Santino is hilarious, he;s a full fledged face now isn’t he?
Miz / Cena: Great build up and you can tell they are giving Miz the ball and running with it. I particularly liked him beating up both Show and Cena with the chair–only bad side is that they keep having Show come out. It’s old.
Matt Hardy has really really no chance at becoming anything anymore after his feud with Jeff fizzled, does he?
Edge was hilarious too, please give him a face turn and reuinte with Christian. See ya Vickie, you did well with the material you had to work with.
Tag Titles–I do like Primo’s work and Dibiase’s look, but I wish Vince would let Ted buy something, like a title, much like his dad. Maybe this year sometime.
HHH returning was great, and my DVR gave out right when people chanted for the Pedigree. I would hope they give them, or 3 Stages of Hell like Austin/HHH (one of my top 3 favorite matches ever)–it did seem weird to all of a sudden have HHH’s face pop up, Ithat’s usually resevred for a shot from behind his opponents. Still, good to see The Game back.
All in all, this was a step in the right direction. I think Steph will be GM again, and I also agree with an excellent opinion article on Wrestlezone earlier today that said all the title changes do not make a good show. I like fresh faces with the belts, and prt of me thinks they are still missing some new stars to replace Batista, HBK, etc….but make the changes mean something, not just for the sake of changing them.
ps Dreamer winning is ok, but all of a sudden his DDT works on peoplle for pinfalls? Have him go nuts next time and draw blood.

Hey again….. All in all id say that this raw was ultimately saved by the return of the greatest wrestler alive today!!! Sooo glad they brought him bak tonight. After the horrible raw main event @ the ppv, just when u think creative has snubbed us… Wual la!! They pull a fast one. And will somebody please tell big show that no1 likes him. I mean really, this could have ended @ judgment day. I was looking foward to seeing just hiw much miz had in him. Guess well just have to wait for the bash as this is where i c it going. No crime time? Dont get me wrong, i love the colon’s but shad and jtg are fan favs. And could really use the push and deserve a title shot. Cant wait till !! 3 hrs of action, 3 title matches, and hopefully ending with jeff hardy handing a much deserved ass whuppin, and a 14th world title for the king of kings HHH!! All in all, great start to build up for the bash and a well received come bak for a living legend. maybe eddie can rest in peace now that this horrible mess for vickie is over. R.I.P. EDDIE
