Lets just start this review with what we all give two flying fucks about… Triple H vs CM Punk.
What a Kanye shrug of a main event. Did we really need three run ins during this match? What I was hoping would be the match of the night turned into the Vince Russo’s specialty. I get why Kevin Nash ran out and attacked both Punk and Hunter. Earlier in the evening John Laurinaitis was seen sending a text so it makes sense why Kevin Nash emerged through the crowd.
I don’t understand the reason for Miz and R-Truth. Wouldn’t Miz and R-Truth want Punk to pin Triple H. I mean for weeks on RAW they both talked a lot of poop about Hunter. Honestly I think all of us wanted another Kliq member to run in. X-pac in instead of Nash would have been money. Pac was super impressive at Chikara’s Kings of Trios. Punk and Pac, both have similar styles, actually wrestling would occur.
Don’t get me wrong I really enjoy the match both Punk and Hunter made the other look good. The spot where Punk went inside the ring and climbed to the top rope for a Randy Savage flying elbow, which sent them both through the table made me mark out. Triple H has ONLY wrestled twice this year and you wouldn’t know it. People REALLY hate HHH for winning this, contrary to the IWC (Internet Wrestling Community) belief. Punk is not being buried, Punk didn’t come off as weak, Punk is now moreover than ever. His baby-face status he will sell a ton of Ice-Cream bar t-shirts. I see a rematch happening at WWE’s next PPV Hell In The Cell.
I had Monday Night RAW on the DVR so yu best believe thats how I spent my Saturday Night. For the first time in a long time…weeks RAW didn’t start with Triple H. The mark in me knew that Hunter was going to end the program. Del Rio starts off the show. ADR cuts a brilliant spanglish promo. RAW was live in the New Jersey of the north Canada. Bret Hart lives their (cheap pops ensues) lets have him add heat for ADR. The Hitman say your not a real champion until you go out and wrestle day in an day out blah, blah, blah.
Del Rio had a great response to Bret’s homeless look. Cena comes out to save the day does the whole sarcastic tough guy act than BAM tag team match tonight ADR/Ricardo vs Bret/Cena. I wonder if both Bret and John went shopping at the “Hey Wear Ridiculous Short Store”.
Riley/Morrison beat Swagger/Ziggler setting up the fatal 4 way at NOC. I think Ziggler is so underused. Riley is over so a United States title change could happen at Night Of Champions. All the fuckery between Vicki and her clients might work in favor of Riley. Fast forward to the Miz/Truth segment which by the way was amazing. I hated Miz for such a long time, he was the dude from the Real World but then his title run really made me respect dude as a worker. R-Truth NEVER EVER disappoints.
When has Truth ever said a bad line? The Ninja please line made me LOL in real life, had that line been said in the USA it would of went over Canada only cares for Hitman and Edge. Miz beat Kofi.. Miz/Truth vs Air Boom at NOC is going to be a great match. Anyone else excited that TAG TEAM WRESTLING is getting a nice push…. tweet @emiliosparks if you agree.
Kelly vs Vickie Guerrero no one cared. Swagger comes out during that match punches Zig they got into it earlier and Kelly rolls Vickie up for the three count. After match Vickie yells at Zigs, Beth tries to run in but Kelly see’s her coming throws the sloppiest punches that Beth had to sell then bails. Beth Phoenix is sorta hot like some days hot some days not. Zac Ryder was the slam of the week could it be a push? Most likely not but lets all do a WOOO WOOO WOOO YOU KNOW IT BRO.
Lawler and a mystery partner vs Otunga/mcguilicutty its freaking tag team mania tonight I love it. Lawler’s partner… Sheamus aka let the pale guy steam roll right thru the fuckers. WWE please keep doing these Lawler mystery partner angles. Lawler’s partner next week should be Trent Barreta. That dude is money!
Eight minutes of eeh aka Bret/Cena vs Alberto/Ricardo. I do get a kick out of Ricardo matter fact Ricardo is actually a indy guy from Cali. Ricardo tapped to the shooter after Del Rio bailed on the match. Ricardo worked like Heenan pretty much. How did Bret do you ask? Better than usual.. basically did he one move and that’s that..
Randy Orton vs Cody Rhodes this has to be the third time they have fought this month and I’m not mad at that. mark Henry Had awesome promo this week, which makes me say let that boy cook. Orton vs Cody was a solid match. Henry watching from the aisle. Cody wins.. Distraction from Henry and a mask shot from Rhodes. I hope you realize that Cody Rhodes is no joke. I’m calling it now future WWE champion, he has charisma just watch the paper bag stick he does during his entrance. Henry with a chair bashes Orton in the back and raises the world title high in the air.
Punk/HHH face to face Punk’s over as all heck in Canada. Phil lights the ultimate pipe bomb the “body builder” complex that vince has. Meaning the big guys where pushed to the moon because of size. Think Lesner, Goldberg, Big Show, Batista, Cena, HHH, Hogan, Nash, Warrior, Undertaker, Kane, Yokozuno, Sid vicious, Sheamus, and so on. All these guys are ‘big guys’ who WWE saw as champions only because of there size….maybe. Keep in mind the art of wrestling has nothing to do with big business, WWE is a business. Businesses are out to make money. If a bigger guys is going to make more money as the champion, he deserves the belt. If he doesn’t draw he doesn’t deserve to hold the title for a long time. That goes for the little dudes and the big dudes.
Ice cream bars chant yet again haha pretty funny stuff.. Punk makes mention to his PPV debut where he was on Team DX and the crowd was chanting “CM Punk” this is one of the better promo’s since Punks promo that changed it all. Hunter plays the perfect season veteran who tells the young pugs that getting over is due to hard work and how Punk made this personal. His mic gets cut off once he says Hunter’s real name. Hunter gives Punk another mic. He calls Hunter Paul again and is cut off… third mic now as Hunter is playing dumb to it. A FED UP PHIL SMASHES PAUL IN THE HEAD WITH THE MIC AND DOES THE CROTCH CHOP. Fade to black show ends.
Closing thoughts: I’m calling it now WWE will be 3 for 3 with this PPV’s. The ending of RAW just made WWE’s buy rate go through the roof. Until this point Phil and Paul really didn’t tap in to the awesome of what the fan could expect now one assumes a great match will happen. I enjoyed a Kevin Nash less RAW lets keep it that way come today. I have been getting email about the finish, honestly I don’t know whats to come. I do think an interference, I’m hoping X-Pac so HHH and his buddies can run this company as a heels. I wish a Colt Cabana run in would go down but thats likely NEVER to happen. Del Rio over Cena because WWE wants Del Rio to be the champion going into there up coming Mexico tour. Night Of Champions happens today order it on Pay-Per-View.
