Re: Official 11/19 Raw Discussion Thread
I obviously didn't see the ppv, and don't know how the whole vibe felt throughout the night.
But with the results I've read, it seems like this ppv could go down in history as the turning point, and the dawn of a new era.
IF they follow through and don't drop the ball like usual.
Some people don't want to put all the blame on Linda's Senate race,
but maybe it was one of the most intricate parts to what we've gotten lately.
Especially what we've gotten for the past (maybe) 2 months when we were getting closer to the race.
I know Mattel still plays a big role, but maybe now we can actually get some edge and passion.
The senate race played a role... whether they admit it or not. I mean, it isn't really a coincidence that the violence tuned down for a while then suddenly, only weeks after her loss, Sheamus goes off on Show, Orton teases the punt (something that was "banned" wasn't it?) and then some edgier tones. While they won't go AE levels with Mattel (or at least not likely to), it's clear it was massively toned down to limit "controversy" for the senate race.
Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
