Deadman_014's Raw Review
Let's begin, first review in awile hehe, so lets get rollin! Randy Orton and the new 'RKO Army' haha, that's sick. Should of gone more into detail even if it's a recap on the insults, and probably should of given HBK, Johnny Nitro, or Ken Doane, but meh not a big deal. HBK will win probably and Orton/HBK will be good, though no Edge appearance really is weird to see, or well... not see from you. MNM beat AMW there to retain the belts, that would of been a big match to give away on 'free TV', good start and MNM's reign looks to be going very well.
Carlito vs. JBL for an entry is ok, I think it's bad though as I would hope both are in the RR, but that means most likely Carlito's left off and in the word's of Carlito, Das not cool. Benoit qualifies for the RR in what's a squash, god you love Mickie lol, should be building a feud probably, or a partnership here with the women. Austin's interview looks peculiar, leaving things obscure and unclear to figure out, I think he'll do well in the RR, but won't win it though you are a huge fan I know that much, DDMac. Gail Kim vs. Mickie James looks alright, I am not a big fan of it, probably will be a triple threat, or fatal four way at WM with Trish and Victoria added in most likely as the best possibility.
Manager's collide, not needed really and desperately hope there is no Umaga/Show feud, that would make for a terrible match. Austin and Undertaker win their big time for them, I find it really bad though that Stone Cold's back 'full time' booking wise, or realistically, it just can't happen. Austin throws `Taker over the top and just sending signals for the Rumble of course as your working the build to it nicely. Victoria sends a message, if this is building towards WM, or if it's building towards RR who knows, but either way it seems rather rushed to say the least.
JBL wins of course, but hopefully somehow Carlito wins maybe a Last Chance battle royal to make it into the RR. RVD/Sabu in an Extreme Rules Match? Meh, I don't like people calling it that, just call it a hardcore match as you never started ECW in the first place of this thread. RR qualifier as well adds more to that match, RVD will probably win of course. The main event comes up and it ends the show in nice fashion, DQ ending wouldn't please the crowd, but it had to be done I suppose.
HBK/Orton is set in stone and we have Lita consequently costing RKO the battle against HBK sending a message from Edge of sorts helping HBK by distracting RKO Army. Intriguing and Orton/Edge will probably happen before WM, or at it, not sure and we have a decent ending with HBK signaling gold. The show seems rather rushed in some points, feud wise, particularly the Victoria/Mickie stuff very much it seems to be pushing the envelope quickly. Good show non the less, I suggest you probably could and should get the Road to RR shows in full if you can as this build means a lot. Good to see you back, can't wait to see a full show, RR looks good at this point, and most of the stuff is moving smoothly. Enjoy the review, DDMac.
