I mean it was not as bad as smackdown as been but it felt like I was wacthing TNA not WWE.
I thought it was going to be a huge disappointment, but to my surprise is
4 star old school raw which was good, but will the follow up raw’s be as good?

The DX bit was more entertaining than some of the other stuff they’ve done since their reformation, but using them as cheap ratings boosters is getting old. DX WAS a great stable, but it just doesn’t have the same resonance as before. Don’t get me wrong, I get a little tingly hearing the music and seeing them come out with the green X pyro and the catch phrases, but no matter how hard they try, it’s just not going to be the same. DX would be better used giving the rub to some of the younger guys in hopes of resuscitating the tag-team division rather than squashing Miz & Morrison who mock DX just to get some cheap heat from the WWE Universe.
Adamle quitting was just odd all around. I thought it would lead to a new GM being announced later in the show, but instead, it just lead to an awkward meeting with Stephanie which seemed to imply she’s wanting to take over again. Raw should be left without any sort of GM for a while (all McMahon’s included) and just let the inmates run the asylum. Take a group like Orton, DiBiase, Rhodes, Jericho & JBL who try to assume control of Raw and then match them against guys like Batista, Cena, Punk, Mysterio & Michaels who rally the boys in the locker-room to bring them down (hmmmm….almost sounds like a Survivor Series match). Stretch this out for a long period and you could have a solid few months of storylines and some great matchups as well as the possibility of giving some exposure to newer, younger talent which Raw also desperately needs.
William Regal winning the battle royal for the IC title match next week was great because he had shown some real fire & energy after his return resulting in some great matches, but it probably won’t result in anything since Santino’s “Honk-a-meter” goal of longest IC title reign is still in its infancy.
And finally, prancing out Mae Young can ONLY be funny to Vince at this point. I’m sure she’s fine with whatever role WWE asks of her, but at some point, this has gotta be considered abuse of the elderly!
