Re: Being The Booker
Deadman_014's Raw Review
HBK vs Booker: Good start to the show with a good match putting HBK over, I am surprised no Rock appearance but I am sure we'll see one later, crotch chops for Rock good stuff. This puts HBK over, though puts Booker down but not much by losing to HBK, good stuff to build HBK up for Sunday.
Carlito Interview: Good interview, short and to the point, but good. Carlito is looking strong coming into Sunday, but I don't see him retaining or winning MITB, though I hope he retains still won't.
HBK & Rock Promo: Short and to the point also, good stuff here. Rock gets a message across, I would of liked Rock to lure him some place or something, but meh its alright. Decent segment here, though something better could of been thought of.
Trish Stratus vs Molly Holly: Little match to build Trish up a bit, nothing special it ends with them locking eyes, I hope Trish retains after Shaniqua's big triple threat win last year. But I can see Shaniqua becoming Champ, either way its meh to me I don't follow women's divisions extremely in threads.
6 Man Tag Team Match: A-Train seems thrown in there, I would of liked a heels vs faces handicap match, but its alright. Decent contest, good ending here, building up the show well giving Kennedy his first pinfall lose and giving Edge credibility and I enjoyed the finish with RVD good stuff here as well the show seems really good like it should be.
Jericho & Undertaker WM Video: This was a very good video, I expect Taker to go over at WrestleMania, and I am pretty much postive he will. Good job here, all the mocking and stuff, this was very good and entertaining for the most part, Fozzy Productions. Fozzy doesn't earn much in real life I don't think, so how can they pay for that guess that explains a crappy WM 22 logo in the backround haha lol.
Foley & Evolution: This was a great promo, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Foley's intensity, his lines, and Flair's heat. All of it went together, Flair & Foley's feud has been masterful to say the least, and the reasoning for Rhyno's discrimination by Flair is so good. Dinsmore gets a few words in, and Batista just watchs on he's the big impact guy for their team at Mania, he should of cut a word even if it wasn't great. Foley ends it with real intensity, and strong ness here, I can see Dinsmore getting a great rub on Raw soon enough after Mania good here.
Benjamin vs Harris: Good way to buildup two things at once, Kane's return is built with his "interference" with his music etc, and we have Harris go over for AMW which is nice. I see WGTT going over with Haas beating Storm, hopefully AMW wins sunday since they lost last year, should be good.
Mysterio Interview: Good promo, Mysterio shows good character here, and I can see him coming through Sunday for a big MITB win. He's been progressing throughout the year, as Intercontinental Champion, etc. MITB win here pushs him towards possibly a big match at SummerSlam or possibly at Bad Blood in June. I see Kennedy winning IC, and Rey winning MITB, good interview here these just my Mania thoughts.
Christian vs Rico: Christian gets over here, he cuts a little decent promo before, and a good promo after. I didn't care about the match personally, Austin & Christian has great build, and it should be great to see where this goes at Mania and who wins. Christian dives to get away from Austin? Crazy, this should be a great match at Mania everything on the Raw and inter promotional tonight has shaped up well it seems.
Cena & Orton Promo: Cena was greatly in character here, and Orton was very in character also. Cena came over better here, and I personally can see Orton winning Sunday, and having their 3rd encounter next year with much bigger build possibly? Anyways, this was a great promo to end the show, not as good as Foley & Flair with Evolution but still great to end the show with this. Though you should of placed the 6 man tag match here, and put the Christian match earlier though it wasn't about the match. Great show here Wolfy man...
Overall: 92/100, great show, I hate giving you these high scores as I usually score around 90 for everyone at best with 75 being a low. Great buildup for Mania, I am very very interested to see where Mania takes us cause I have no clue in some points of who's winning. Great stuff, very good show, thanks for the SD review and my Sig says with SNME should be up. Later bud...
