Welcome to the second edition of #RAWTALK!... I am your ever gracious host, Rated_R(ob)KO. Tonight I give to you my thoughts and opinions on what went down this past Monday night on RAW. I know, I'm a couple days late but, better than never right? Either way, I say we get this horse and pony show on the road!!!
RAW felt meaty. It was a very healthy helping of things we've wanted. Well, truthfully... what you Attitude Era "marks" have been wanting. I mean seriously... an NFL game that BLASTED ratings through the roof kills an episode of MNR and everyone cries foul? Lat week the game was huge so more people tuned in. That's all folks.
This week VKM came back to good ol' DUBBYA DUBBYA EEEEEEE land this week and gave you all a show. And what a show it was. He effectively killed his "PG Era" stuff when he interrupted the dancing stuff... Little Jimmy going through "puberty" was the hint. "Play time/Kid time is over." Get it?
We also had a nice little injection of the Tag-Team Tournament and it was spot on what I said it would be. Basically breaking down the "real" Tag-Teams in order to get the division "over" with the fans by having main eventers in the spotlight. It'll come down to Sin Mysterio VS Hell No! @ HIAC in my humble opinion because seriously, PTP is NOT ready for the straps. IE, SEE ANY MATCH TITUS O'NEIL IS IN!! AROOFFF!!! AROOFFF! AROOFFF!! -_-
Is there honestly NOTHING CM Punk can't do? He did fantastic with VKM, Cena, Ryback and smacking the shit out of a fan whom he thought hit him. It was amazing. The CM Punk VS. VKM match was a LOT better than I thought it would be. The ending was predictable but effective. But within that we come to...
Now, I don't think it was CM Punk's fault but if you guys feel it was, maybe I'm just that much of a "smark" to tell otherwise but, did that whole segment with VKM just feel weak, rushed and forced? Like, the slap came out of left field for me... in the past it took WAY more for VKM to "come out of retirement" to fight a match. The Jerry Lawler hear attack was just tasteless to bring up in my point of view as well.
Sheamus VS Wade Barrett is NOT something people want to see unless it's THE 'E giving Wade the strap and letting him run rampant. But alas, that will never happen. Glad the Divas got some time but, we back to this shit again? Your "mystery" is running out of steam. Time to re-fuel. Team Hell No needs to do something different a bit as well sooner rather than later unfortunately.
These guys are doing great by me but, a lot of people are starting to complain here in IWCLandia. And we all know how that goes. They're more fickle than a woman with a "headache" if you catch my drift. There's a lot more to say but I'll shorten it so we can get to...
Man, Larry King should stay off TV. The Miz needs to stay away from Kofi and Kofi needs either more mic time or a person to speak for him. Larry's wife was also insufferable. This Ryback stuff is cool but in my opinion weak. They need to build him more. Just last month Jobber A and B were enough. He barely broke anyone in the mid-card and they just put him in a main event spot.
It's ridiculous... the fans are STILL chanting GOLDBERG! GOLDBERG! GOLDBERG! and half of them are so young they don't even know who the hell he IS! It's stupid. I liked last weeks show a lot more than this weeks.
Given the circumstances of craziness that was going on backstage, I'm surprised we even got a show to begin with honestly. I'm not doing a "Best Of" or "Worst Of" this week because they were both in one segment.
Segment in question? CM Punk VS. VKM... both an awesome spectacle and a tragic collision of doom all in one nice tiny little package. I'm only going to write one sentence and you'll understand why:
CM Punk beat John Cena with more ease than he could a 67 year old man.
And with that, I'm out everyone. Leave questions, comments, hair tips, costume tips and book preference below.
See Ya' Soon Space Cowboy...
