Thanks to Wrestlezone reader Daniel Robbins for sending in the following live report from this week's Monday Night Raw:
Big Show VS Daniel Bryan: Show got a lot of heat from the crowd Bryan got a big POP from the crowd and so did Kane when he came out to help.
With the Heyman and Punk segment the crowd gave a lot of heat, but huge POP for Vinnie MAC when he came out on the stage!
Alberto Del Rio VS Brodus Clay: Not much of a match here the crowd wasn't to interested in the match, but did give Ricardo alot of heat when he came down during the commerical break.
Santino Marella/Zack Ryder VS Prime Time: was an ok match not much going on there. Santino probably got the biggest POP out of all the guys involved in the match.
Ryback VS Dolp Ziggler/David Otunga Handicap match: Was basically a squash match. Ryback got a huge huge POP!!!
Antonio VS Justin Gabriel: Was actually quite suprised at how much the crowd was behind Gabriel. Chanting USA, USA!!! Good match.
Matt Striker VS Kane: Kane got a fairly huge POP with the crowd. You heard a lot of ppl in the crowd chantting "I'm the tag team champions"!!!
Miz TV: Kofi went over well with the crowd. Miz not so much.
Wade Barrett VS Sheamus: Sheamus got a huge POP from the crowd. Overall a good match. When Big Show came out the crowd gave a big "booing" reaction. Just a note but for a big guy Big Show can sure run though....I seen him running down to the ring, not saying he is the fastest, but he can run. lol
On the Big Screen when the crowd saw John Cena the crowd errupted!!! It was a good tease for the crowd to get them back going again with the show. Up until this point no one really knew if Cena was there yet or not. I think WWE played it off pretty well and knew just how to get the crowd back into it. I mean really 4 hours of wrestling does take alot out of the crowd.
Layla VS Eve: Was an ok match. After seeing Cena on the titron and then the divas match I then figured out that WWE was trying hard to get the divas division back up and going seeing as how there hasn't been much to the divas division for a while now.
There was a good crowd reaction again to the Daniel Bryan and Kane segment on the Titron and the crowd starting chanting I'm the tag team champions and really liked the thought of Kane VS Big Show next week. Then when it went to Ryback and Vince the crowd starting chantting "FEED ME PUNK"!!!
Team Rhodes Scholars VS Primo and Epico: Very disappointing match. Alot of ppl were anticipating that it was the WWE Tag Team Champions #1 Contendars match w/Rey and Cara. They may have said something about it on TV but no one in the crowd was into this match at all. Very disappointing, am sorry to here that Rey was sick though, after reading on here. Hope he gets well soon!!! Wasn't surprised when Team Rhodes Scholars won. Might add Rosa looked very sexy!!!
Kofi Kingston VS Miz: Best match of the night!! Was really impressed with Kofi!!! The finish was awesome!!! Yes the kick in the head that Miz got was real that was probably the best kick I had ever seen!!!
The Contract signing: Vince got a huge POP while coming to the ring. Punk got a lot of heat. Ryback got one heck of a POP. John Cena got the biggest POP I had ever seen!!! The Crowd wouldn't stop cheering!!! I heard very little of Cena Sucks chants. This segment was great. I could hardly hear what was going on due to the fact of all the screaming fans. Even after Cena started getting the crowd screaming "FEED ME MORE" and after he left the ring he stood off Camera and kept getting the crowd involved with the chantting.
