More than Just a Raw Review: Lots of Stuff.

Hey Everyone. DK Wrestling Savior here hoping you all had a great weekend. I enjoyed the Superbowl, and like I'm sick of seeing Cena and Orton in the title picture, I'm sick of seeing The Patriots in the Superbowl and was very happy to see The Giants win.
Okay,k let's jump right in as I have a lot of stuff to talk about here. I'll do my best to not jump all over the place.
First of all, I want to state something that's very important to me and hopefully gives you all an idea of where I'm coming from with my blogs. See, I come on to this site and enjoy reading the blogs, writing my blogs, and some, though very few, actual reports on this site. I don't watch spoilers and I don't read the reports, especially ones from a certain fraudulent writer by the name of Ryan Clark, who is famous mostly for reporting stuff the next day and plays it off like he got some sort of info from somewhere. My favorite was the day after the Royal Rumble, he posted something like this. "A source has indicated that creative plans were to have Sheamus win the Royal Rumble because they wanted to avoid being predictable with Jericho". Now, I don't call that news, I call that, pathetic. And he genuinely deleted my comment stating such. So, with that being said, my point is, I post straight from my thoughts and opinions, along with what I know after 25 years of watching wrestling religiously. So, my posts are backed with only pure passion, not by what's weakly posted on this site.
Now that I got that off my chest, let's talk about some wrestling things that are going on, or possibly going on.
Let me start by saying that I think it's pretty predictable to see that Drew Mcintyre and Santino will become a tag team like Santino vs Vladmir Kozlov did. Whether they'll win the titles or not, remains to be seen, but I'm willing to bet that's what they're going to do with Mcintyre and he'll slowly turn face.
The Elimination Chamber is coming up in two weeks. It doesn't look overly exciting. I guess another Cena vs Kane brawl to kill time will be interesting to see. Since plans for Wrestlemania are already written, there's not much as far as the surprise factor is concerned. I mean, we're gonna have CM Punk vs Chris Jericho for the title. I'm sure the WWE is gonna force another Orton/Barrett match down our throats. Big Show might be booked to get buried by yet another celebrity, and it seems there would be a lot of intrigue behind a Cody Rhodes/Goldust match. So, Daniel Bryan will weasel his way out of another one.
Looking at it now, it really seems like Wrestlemania is gonna be pretty weak. I mean, sure we have Cena vs The Rock, but how exciting is that match going to be? The Rock pulls in what, $15 $20 mil per movie. He's not gonna risk that for Wrestling so there won't be anything major as far as high spots in the match. It has intrigue but won't be that great. Big Show vs Shaq is rumored and that would just be a joke. The ladder match should be good and Jericho/Punk should be pretty good. Of course, The Undertaker vs HHH will be good. But I'm sick of Orton/Barrett, I'm sick of Truth/Miz. Sheamus and Bryan will be an average at best match. Wrestlemania might not be so spectacular this year. And it's because of their lack of talent with drawing power.
Okay, time the report on what I thought was a very weak Raw following last week's. I know they can't pull out all the stops each and every week, but they could have had some sense of direction. In my opinion, they didn't do much to add substance to the Jericho/Punk feud. If Johnny Ace was in Connecticut to see the Board of Directors, then why was he on the show tonight? They wasted valuable minutes on two segments with him. R-Truth took a nasty spill. I wonder if he's legitimately hurt. Will they replace him in the Chamber? His head hit hard. He might not be okay to do that match.
Finally, and I want to say this is with the best intentions in mind. I have been getting comments recently by people who are taking the smallest point of my blog, and trying to disprove it. Like I said when I opened this blog, these are my thoughts and opinions. I don't read reports, watch spoilers, and I don't claim to know everything. I write these blogs so people will have something thoughtful and entertaining to read. And I welcome all comments. Just try to be intelligent with them.
Thanks for reading. I hope everyone has a great week.
