The Makdafi Report #5: WWE Raw 5/21/12

Main Points & Notes On WWE Raw 5/21/12
  1. John Laurinaitis's Broken Clavicle
  2. John Cena Golden Raspberry Promo
  3. Raw 1,000

1. I think your not officially the new Mr.McMahon until you suffer a broken clavicle.

The Laurinaitis authority figure push was in full force on this show. With The Big Show becoming a part of his corporation. I just hope this doesn't all end with Big Show Union.

2.Big Show is actually a decent actor, WWE put him in a bad comedy. John Cena is absolutely horrible and he is put in dramatic roles. WWE Films/Studios is losing money. For this episode of Raw, simply put Cena's acting was beyond bad.

One thing that I thought while listening to Cena's dialogue, was at least from the verbiage and on how some of it was delivered, that it reminded me of a HHH promo. Which is never a good thing.

3.WWE promoted "Raw 1000th" during this episode of Raw.[SARCASM]Which is a milestone and the beginning of the new revolutionary interactive groundbreaking 3 hour extravaganza, Lassie spaying, Gunsmoke beating bonanza, every Monday night.[/SARCASM]

The only thing that really irritated me while watching the promo, was how they listed shows like "Law & Order", "Lassie", "The Simpsons", and "Gunsmoke", with the amount of episodes in each respective series. Then having WWE Raw with 1,000 on their little chart, towering above the competition. It came across as desperate and bush league.

Let me put it this way with this analogy. Lets say that Alberto Del Rio buys a $250,000 dollar sports car. Then lets say that Sin Cara gets jealous and wants to out do Del Rio. Unfortunately Sin Cara isn't a Mexican aristocrat. So his funds are limited. So Sin Cara decides to buy 5 $10,000 dollar cars.

Then Sin Cara brags that he has 5 times the cars that Del Rio does. And then he adds the cumulative horsepower of all 5 of his cars together, and then Sin Cara creates a chart that shows his cars have more horsepower than Del Rio's, while never actually telling you that Sin Cara had 5 cars to Del Rio's one, and that Del Rio's car is worth a quarter of a million dollars, while Sin Cara's is worth $10,000 each. WWE's tactics are on par Sin Cara's cars. And because of a lot WWE's tactics, a lot of their fanbase is on par with Sin Cara as well, just trying to hide their identity.
