Sorry my friend…a little later than I promised, but I ran into some issues today! Anyhow, I’d be asleep as I am really exhausted, but a pot of coffee is allowing me the energy needed for this review!
Raw, September 5
Anaheim…HA HA…the site of Taboo Tuesday!
Great opening from Michaels, totally on character, and the reason he gave is a substantial one. I believe he could have held on for another 20 seconds, and if it wasn’t for those damn ligaments, he would have! Wow, Orton wants his shot! Michaels plays hard to get, but Foley won’t have it. Short and sweet bit from Foley, with his character on point, cheap pops and all. Cade with one comment is funny as ever. And so the match is on, should be great! BTW love you enforcing the thirty day rule…puts more “sport” in the entertainment.
Shaniqua squashes some poor woman. Man, who in the hell will ever beat her? Hell, maybe a man will challenge for the women’s title? I mean women have won men’s belts in wrestling! Why not…? Have Rico jump ship…he’d make a perfect Women’s champ!
RVD is gonna take the belt off Rey. I think this match has the ability to be the best mid card match you have ever produced. Also, everything is interesting with this feud. What the hell really happened? And the King is right…RVD, I’m sure, be puffin on that heat.
Nice win for Roadkill and Doring, and I really could conceivably see them taking the belts from DX.
Interesting meeting between between Edge and Orton. Does Edge want to take the belt off Orton or HBK? Will his feeling on that issue cause him to interfere tonight? I am sure it will, though I can’t call who he will try to assist.
Jim Ross: Coach, I wouldn’t know whether to wear a G-String, or floss my teeth with it.
The Coach: That’s just unhygienic.
^^^I found this funny as hell. Also the JR comment about don’t worry, I wont thank you…funny.
Nice win for Eugene and Lita, though sort of lackluster with Eugene instead of Hardy IMO. I know Hardy is on SD!, but you know what I mean.
Huge match made for next week, for the #1 contender spot. What a bold move by Foley, leaving Batista and Christian out, and walking right past them. Foley and Batista will have a war of a match one day, and Foley and Flair as well. Should be a great match next week, and I can’t wait to see what Christian has on his mind!
NEXT WEEK IN KANSAS CITY!!! MY HOMETOWN BABY!!! R.I.P. OWEN…YOU WILL FOREVER BE MISSED!! Sorry, I had too do that.
I love the possibility of an alliance between Flair, Batista, Christian, and Tomko!! How funny could those damn promos be? They would be show stealers for sure. Should be interesting to see where you take this.
Nice win for the giant killer. I love Rey. Nice attack by RVD! Alfonso is back!! You know I love RVD!! I love this feud! Money in the bank IMO.
Wonderful!! RVD is back…ECW…Whole f’n Show!! I love it, an he is taking the belt off Rey I am sure!! What a damn feud, the best thing going right now IMO. Please thrill me with this match!! Two words…SHOW STEALER!!! It has to be one!! Also, were the cus words edited for TV? I hope so!!
First off, I would like to say that I did not steal my “Insurance Policy” gimmick for Scott Norton from you, in case you are wondering. I don’t recall hearing you call Reigns that before, though I am sure I just overlooked it.
DX screw Orton, which makes for a nice future. Orton will have a reason to be upset! He will be able to use this, though I think for now it wont matter. I think it is interesting, but just fine, that you got this match over with tonight. Next week we get a new number one contender. I cant help but imagine that in the future we will se a Randy Orton/Sting Legend/Legend Killer feud. I also think Orton will end up being the one to take the belt off HBK eventually, after he has had the belt for a while. Maybe this is a precursor, and Orton will end up redeeming himself at WM22, by taking the belt from HBK…? You never know!
Great show, which followed the PPV well, and immediately moved on into the future!
Smackdown, and the next Raw review coming tomorrow. Sorry dude, I am just too tired right now. I will get them up though.
