Re: Rate raw this week and which pipebomb was better
I don't really like to rate things. Punk, Rock, Heyman and Cesaro are things I remember as really good, and that's enough to make a very good Raw (as I'm not watching live). There were some significant downsides as well though.
As for the pipebomb it's hard to compete with the shoot of 2011, which is already legendary. Part of that is of course that it came as lighting from a clear sky. No one expected it. This promo was probably the best in WWE since then but the complete shoot still takes it. The promo of this Raw wasn't a complete shoot in my view as everything made perfect sense even within kayfabe, but it of course hinted to things outside as well, which made it have a nice duality to it. Both promos of course reach their heights because Punk is top notch in making things actually sound genuine, rather than being made with the normal wrestling theatrics.
