- Well this DEFINITELY started off strong with Cena/Michaels. Incredible match that you already know my feelings on. The first segment of the set was 'The Birth of Legacy.' Nothing special as far as moments go but a historic one for sure. Punk/Regal was awesome. Instead of using the stipulation to get weapons, they just refused to obey rope breaks for submissions. Very unique match with a badass finish. January gets a big
for all of this.
- The only thing we saw from February was Orton's attacks on Shane & Stephanie. That was hilarious because of Orton's reactions afterwards. He looks like a little kid who knew he was gonna get in so much trouble for it. Shame that this feud was so personal and they dropped the ball in the Mania main event.
- March was obviously a bunch of segments involving HBK & Taker. The in ring face to face was intense but the graveyard piece with Shawn was weird. Santino/Mickie was a waste of space.
- They gave us a bunch of shit from April. The 10 man tag was a lot of fun, especially anything involving Steamboat. It was really weird to see Punk teaming with basically all his major rivals in the future though. Cena/Jericho was in the UK and was advertised as Jericho's last RAW match since he was drafted over to SD. They gave them a lot of time and meaning but the spots and nearfalls were really predictable because they took too long to set them all up. Finish kinda ruined things too, but it's not a bad watch. Orton/MVP were having a pretty solid TV match, but it was just included to show Shane get his revenge. Can't complain too much on that.
- May was on here too but it was nothing but Santino making fun of Vickie & the Denver Debacle thing they did with the Nuggets GM or owner, idr.
- Random question. They showed highlights of a match in April between Orton & Trips where trash cans and steel steps were used. Looked like Orton had a black eye and he won with an RKO. Anyone remember this, was it any good/what was it?
