Last Night's Raw: Thoughts and Prayers with Jerry Lawler

Rating: 2 votes, 4.50 average.
Hey fans. Savior here. The tone of this blog is going to be a little down, for obvious reasons. I will start by saying that I think New Jack needs to get out of his mom's basement and grow the hell up. Jerry Lawler is a legendary figure in wrestling, a little respect is in order. I'm sure everyone is with me when I say our thoughts and prayers are with Jerry Lawler.

Now, I watched the opening segment of Raw because I heard Bret Hart was gonna be there. I figured he would open. I figured Punk would come out and disrespect him. Now, Bret Hart is the absolute best in my mind. Just not when it comes to cutting promos. He can't hang with Punk, but Punk is out of his mind with saying he's better than Bret. *I'm sure someone who I argued with on the forum last week is laughing to himself right now, as am I*. He drew nice heat with that.

I've also been captivated with this Daniel Bryan and Kane thing. It is funny So my brother alerted me to their segments. I watched their match where they won. Then the sad news came.

I watched from there on out, simply because I was worried that it may have been the last time I see Jerry Lawler. Then I thought to myself. That's why I tune in when the legends are around. Those guys who made me a wrestling fan to begin with. Guys like Jerry Lawler, Bret Hart, Roddy Piper. I love finding out when there's going to be segments with Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Sgt Slaughter, and Dusty Rhodes. Because we never know when we won't see them again, as was evident at last night's Raw, we may never hear Jerry Lawler again. Heart Surgery is not something you just come back from in two weeks. Retirement may be in order here. And it's sad that it had to be this way. Now if there are people who are going to comment and say things like, "well, maybe they can finally bring Regal in for color commentary", I implore you to keep your comments to yourself. Because I don't wanna hear that crap. If they do bring Regal in to replace him, fine. But I refuse to be happy about the circumstances. So keep that crap to yourself.

One more shout out. I have full admirmation for Michael Cole. He did a fantastic job keeping us updated. He was a pure professional in the situation. He had to break kayfabe and never went back to it for the rest of the night. I applaud him 100%...and this comes from someone who absolutely hates him.

Now the closing segment was something of beauty. I'm setting myself up for slaughter here, but I thought John Cena was brilliant in that final segment. I feel CM Punk is starting down the Bobby Roode route. He's whining, it's all about respect him, he has IT, blah blah blah. All the same crap we hear from everyone who thinks they should be champ. It's so played out, it's laughable. Cena killed it on the mic last night and there's no denying that. He laid into Punk, Punk tried to talk back just to have the mic slapped out of his hand, he was called an Ignorant Son of a Bitch, and he was gonna get his ass kicked.

Now, not sure what's gonna happen at Night of Champions. Everyone wants Punk to win because everyone hates Cena, but if it does happen, it'll be because of interference or some sort of screwjob or something. However, it unfortunately spells the beginning of the end of CM Punk's cred as champion. After clean wins in feuds over Daniel Bryan and Chris Jericho to define his year as champ, he's now gonna be relegated to dirty, watered-down wins until he ultimately loses to The Rock at Royal Rumble, IF, he keeps the title that long. I say if, because everything John Cena said last night, was ultimately true. As champ, he's seen Main Event after Main Event pass him by. Why? Because WWE had Cena headlining. But there's more to that Why question. Cena headlines, because Cena draws. Punk obviously does not, or else he would be headlining. So I say IF, he holds the belt until Royal Rumble, because there's opportunity up and down. Cena can fued with ADR, (we all know how much WWE loves him, so we'll be forced to get him), Cena can feud with Daniel Bryan. (Okay, could be a good thing. Though Bryan won't hang and just be another Super Cena victim). But ultimately, because Cena vs Rock 2 will bring in more buys to the Royal Rumble, then Punk/Rock would. To the IWC who hates Cena, I know it sucks, but it IS reality.

Anyway, I just wanted to throw out some thoughts about the first Raw I actually watched more than 10 minutes of since I gave up on WWE back in July. I hope you enjoyed this blog. Feel free to comment below, love me or hate me, but keep any negativity about Lawler and the announcing situation out.

God Bless Jerry Lawler. We're all pulling for a safe recovery.

Take Care Everyone.

    Really? So Punk is the phony and not Cena and Punk is the insecure one and not Cena. Cena willingly lets the WWE present him to us as if he were the best wrestler in the company, which for obvious reasons, is clear as daylight that he's not. That, my friend is called being a phony. Now lets talk about insecurity. CM Punk, since Wrestlemania, has taken a back seat to Cena at all PPVs without complaints (until recently of course). Cena on the other hand has had to put himself in the main event because without the hype of a PPV match he himself will become irrelevant. Not to mention he has to break kayfabe and suck up to the crowd to get cheers, talk about insecurity.

    You need to do me a favor. Know your goddamn role, and shut your goddamn mouth. Last night was the CLEAR episode of Raw where i finally found out why John Cena is special. He may not wrestle, but he can do something better than anyone in the business. TALK to the fans. I would love for you to EXPLAIN to me how the crowd starts Cena off with "YOU CANT WRESTLE" chants and they end up CHEERING THE HELL out of Cena in that final confrontation where Cena and Punk started yelling at eachother. I got goosebumps hearing the crowd after that BEAUTIFUL Cena promo. That is why you are ignorant, because you follow a crowd of 30 year old attitude era lovers who miss the days of edgy TV. We all do, but shit changes and you should too. CM Punk, like cena, is doing his job. So if that means acting like a bitch to gain he (IE the respect angle), Then he will act like a bitch. He isnt doing it because he is pissed off legit or because he actually feels like Cena is hogging his spotlight. This is 2012 WWE, which means people are acting like phonys because it is there job.

    Anyways, great stuff DK.

    How does that make Cena a phony? Because they present him as the face of the WWE which he is? It's not his fault that he is on a higher level then those who think that are better than him.

    Now lets talk about insecurity. CM Punk, since Wrestlemania, has taken a back seat to Cena at all PPVs without complaints (until recently of course).
    CM Punk hasn't taken a backseat to anybody and I say that as a Punk mark. He is the longest reigning WWE champion in recent memory and continues to put on awesome performances. Just because he doesn't main event PPVs doesn't mean hes taking a backseat. Hes been booked pretty well I'll say.

    Cena on the other hand has had to put himself in the main event because without the hype of a PPV match he himself will become irrelevant.
    He's put himself in the main event? I'm not sure I understand that one. Hes been in more superior feuds than CM Punk at the time and draws more interest. The bigger draws are the ones who main event and John Cena is the biggest draw they have. Plus, some people complain about John Cena always being in the WWE title scene, yet, complain about him being the main event as well. I don't understand this notion of wanting the WWE's top draw to get booked lower on the card despite him being a main attraction. If people don't want to see him capture the WWE title constantly, than the smart thing to do is give him feuds that draw with it not involving the WWE title.

    Not to mention he has to break kayfabe and suck up to the crowd to get cheers, talk about insecurity.
    The Rock and Mic Foley suck up to the crowd all the time. Doesn't mean they are insecure. They just know how to work a crowd just like Cena.

    In response to this blog,
    Savior, props to you man on writing such a great piece of work. Props to Michael Cole for being a true professional last night during the aftermath.
    It affected us all. Last night on Twitter, I was doing LIVE RAW Play-By-Play, and after Cole announced what happened, I just did support tweets for the rest of the night. The show wasn't important anymore at that point. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jerry Lawler, his family, and his friends. I also wish Mr. Lawler a safe and speedy recovery.

    This may sound strange, but bear with me on this: in many ways, the King's heart attack could not have happened at a better time. While the stress of being in a match 30 minutes before was certainly not helpful, it seems that the heart attack was a question of 'when' not 'if' it happened. He collapsed during the live show where he received immediate medical aid within seconds. He could not have been in a better place to have a heart attack than to actually be in a hospital emergency room. The sad issue is that the nature of the business is that most talent and staff of WWE are on the road for much of the time. Had he collapsed in his hotel room, it is highly likely that he would have died there and then, with medical aid coming too late. I cannot help but think that if Eddie Guerrero had collapsed at an event, rather than alone in his hotel room, he might still be with us today. There is no question that Jerry Lawler has received and will continue to receive the very best care.

    Jerry Lawler is, and will always be, one of the best mic guys in the business. No-one cuts a promo like he can and his commentary has always been first rate. He's also a guy in excellent physical condition for his age and has weathered the years and pressures of the business better than most (I'm looking at you Roddy, Snuka and Flair) and he has the very best chance of recovery that he possibly can have. I've always loved the King and I truly want to hear that music hit one more time and see the King, holding the crown in his hand, walk down the ramp to once again take his rightful place at the commentary box.

    We love you King, and I personally wish you a speedy and full recovery. So get your royal ass well and get it down to the commentary box where it belongs!

    My thoughts are naturally with Jerry Lawler's friends and family at this difficult time.

    Peace,
    Dan

    Just because he says everything with confidence doesn't mean it's a good promo. Everything that comes out of his mouth is complete bull****, storyline or not. His promos make no sense and is constantly trying to make every storyline about the fans, it gets old.
