From The Shame
Should have been named ‘Raw is Vince’s Ego’ or ‘Monday Night Vince.’ As the phrase goes, the only bad press is no press, and this Denver Nuggets thing got WWE about 20 minutes worth of actually TV time. I don’t blame the Denver owner for booting WWE since the playoff’s easily get a higher TV rating and SO much more money than Raw could ever hope. Also, I guarantee you that in the contract, the arena has the right to bump people as they see fit. Vince made this into another ‘The world VS me’ thing, and it was plastered all over this episode. 5 on 5 main event, which normally with the stars involved would be a great main, turned into a joke with everyone wearing stupid jerseys, and Orton ‘wearing a job face’ from the start.
1.) Never allow batista to wear anything besides his standard ring gear. Last night he looked like a kid who got his dad’s credit card and bought a Lakers outfit.
I can hardly remember what else was going on besides the Nuggets vs Lakers thing, and yes, the reasoning is to get mainstream pub, but the Denver owner is smart enough to either not take the bait, thus making WWE and Vince look low brow, or by some miracle if the guy does take the bait, it will make WWE a heel in Denver, which could have some staying power. For the record, Eve is from Denver, so if the Denver guy takes the bait, she could easily be used. On the other hand, Bobby Lashley is also from Denver, so TNA could capitalize.
This is in response to the thinly veiled TNA rant posted earlier. there’s so much wrong with what he said i don’t even know where to begin…but i’ll try.
NEWSFLASH if TNA is a young company trying to establish itself then maybe it should, oh I don’t know, have some fresh talent be the focus of their show?
What? Did this guy see Jericho bloody Flair around WM? What "intense violence" does TNA use other than S’moa
Joe broraping Scott Steiner
? What swearing do they use besides Team 3D cussing about WWE, which is a whole other issue.
Mick fucking Foley has the TNA belt right now. What the fuck is the Legends belt doing?
TNA is probably afraid to alienate people who pay for tickets instead of just waiting for it to be papered.
They also have matches that make no sense and gimmick matches with no build.
Lashley hasn’t done shit. At LEAST 7/10 of those people mentioned are former WWE talent, so they aren’t exactly fresh.
Mick Foley wrestled a
Fat stupid baby.
Kane – fake diesel –
– masked monster – monster jobber. Not all character development is good.
Jericho. Morrison. MVP.
No one can follow anything that happens in TNA.
If I wasn’t convinced before, I sure am now! Thank you for making me see the error of my ways.
now, for a real raw review…
opening segment sucked and was a typical WWE ‘celebrity’ segment. Kelly Kelly/Maryse was better than average for a woman’s match, except for the fuck finish. Santina is stale as hell and needs to be done. Golddust/HS segment was awful. Triple threat was easily the match of the night. TBK can’t be going anywhere good with what they are doing with him, and there isn’t even a point to having tag titles right now. 10 man tag was predictably terrible. The only redeeming quality of raw was that some fresh faces are starting to breathe in the main event.
