Jamie1 Raw Review
Nice format at the top of the page Nige
Anyway. I can’t remember the last time I reviewed. It was probably your previous show but just you haven’t posted in a good while due to your holiday.
As always I like your recaps you do at the start of the show and its something I may bring into my BTB, if that’s ok with you
The opening segment wasn’t brilliant but it was an ok way to start the show. I don’t know why I didn’t enjoy it much Nige if I am honest. It just didn’t get me excited for some reason. John Cena wins tonight he will be facing Randy Orton. This is good because you actually don’t know if Cena will win. If he doesn’t I expect Kane to challenge Orton for the title although maybe if Cena wins it will be a three way. The character was actually good in the segment and all that its just it didn’t get me excited if you know what I mean
Good way too kick of Raw here. We get a little of women and men. Although you could argue that sometimes Victoria and Beth act more like men than women. The match seemed like it went well. TBH, I think Victoria is really only one of very few good women wrestlers. Beth also is one of the better ones. However, the two men in this match are great competitors and that’s what would have made it a good match. The faces going over the heels was no surprise and its gets the fans smiling straight away.
Nice segment here with the McMahon family. Senior McMahon
seemed his usual weird self, If you know what I mean. You probably won’t but I do
. The ideas put ahead by both his sons were both good ideas for us watchers and readers TBH. I now sadly don’t expect you to use any of them or maybe you will put both together as it could work if you think about it. Anyway, good way to get Triple H worried.
A weird segment here all together but one I loved. You seemed to do well without giving away to much about it. At first Murdoch and Cade asking for a match against the tag champs but then being told they would need to face another tag team but we don’t know who it is. That keeps the readers interested and now with Punk not knowing who his opponent is its all very exciting.
This is another good match. I only really seen Ron Killings in the WWF back when he was K-Kwik. I only really seen him once or twice when he was over in TNA as I don’t watch it much so I am not too sure on his talent however I remember him pulling off some excellent spots. The guys 6 pack is fucking awesome as well and for that he deserves a push
. Santino Marella is someone who has alright in-ring skills but is great on the mic. The match seemed ok and the DQ ending was booked well TBH.
Another nice segment here. Nothing to write home about however a good wee filler and sets up a rivalry a little more TBH. Would Kofi really refer to his time in Jamaica though. I am not too sure!
You just set up a match that should be awesome TBH. The segment seemed good, all men were in character. I know a lot people don’t like Lashley, I do though! He isn’t great on the mic but his in-ring skills are great. The other two were in character, especially Mr Kennedy who I loved reading. This match should be awesome
This match was just as I thought. Some good spots were in this match and for reading it went well. It wasn’t difficult to read or anything which is obviously a plus. Bobby Lashley walking out with the win is great. I want to see him pushed to the skies
Another match straight away is unusual for you as you seem to concentrate on getting segments in when possible but its nice to see this. Cryme Time were the opponents. I bet you said that earlier and I totally didn’t notice. Done that with Kane01s thread
. The match seemed alright. Not much really to say on it as It wouldn’t be a match I would particularly want to watch. However, its set up a good match with Cryme Time taking on Londrick
Solid Triple H promo. You can tell he’s eager to kick some ass.
I seen your reasoning for making it take so long for CM Punk to pick up the victory but I think this would do more harm to Punk than a defeat would do for Eugene. Plenty of superstars I believe have lost there opening match in the WWE. Also, I don’t understand how it was so high up the card.
Great match here with Orlando and Triple H. Jordan is a guy I used to like TBH and think he had some good talent. No surprise however he was jobbing to Triple H. If you had Triple H not come out this match looking strong I would have never read again
. Well maybe that’s over the top but you know what I mean, my high regard for you work would have fell a little
Triple H after the match was also great. Really great booking skills all over to make him come out of this match strong
John Cena picked up the win. I wasn’t surprised as it seems most people push him as much as WWE do IRL. I love John Cena and think he is great so I for one, will not moan about this. A 3 way match for Wrestlemania. Yeah I said it
. I loved the way Kane gave him his answer. Randy really took a beating tonight. Maybe not too good for him but it was the right thing for this time and I think he will get his own back. I expect him opening the show again next week.
Overall Nige. As usual the show was solid. I think you will know also though that it wasn’t quite up to your usual standards. Some poor mistakes. I just have to pick up on two things. The 7 matches. I didn’t like as sometimes that’s longer than people have for there pay-per-views and to fit all of that in too 2 hours. I am not sure about. One thing I need to say also though is I love how since the start of this thread you have brought through talent. You haven’t took the easy way out and signed AJ Styles or anything, You have built all these superstars up until they are ready to be in Raw/Smackdown
