JR Blog: Thoughts on Old School Raw, Buzz Over Punk vs Cena on Raw

Next Monday is the annual, Old School RAW that emanates from Buffalo, New York. Now, this is one event that WWE should station a camera crew in catering to hear all the tall tales being spun by the old timers. It's somewhat comparable to a group of guys telling fishing stories, the first liar doesn't stand a chance. Hopefully the young talents will engage the veterans and pick their brains for info on how to tell more compelling stories and perhaps even learn some valuable life lessons on what NOT to do to perpetuate one's career over the long haul.

One thing that was buzzing back stage in OKC was the amazing match that closed the Raw broadcast Monday night in Dallas between John Cena and CM Punk. Two points on this tremendous, main event, 1. Cena added some new wrinkles to his game that might silence some of his narrow minded critics for a few days and 2. Punk was working with the flu and hampered by jet lag from a long flight to Dallas from Istanbul on the last day of a grueling, three day international tour. I watched the match live on TV and it is the first match in a long time that I've gone back and watched again on DVR.
