We kick off the show with a New WWE Tag Team, Rockin' Out, who cut a great heel promo and get huge heat. The Usos save us from these jackasses and laugh at the two, saying they never made an impact (good point ). Then, we have AJ arrive out and announce what should be a good match KOW vs. Rockin' Out, #1 contenders match! The Two Man Rock Band are screwed!! Great opening segment, againing highlighting the rebuilding of the Tag Team Division, opening the show with them.
Next up, we have CM Punk complaining about respect not being given to him. Good for AJ, standing up to that Punk, and she makes a great Pick Your Poison matches between Cena and CM! Punk is pissed!!!!
WOW! Jerry Lawler finally snaps with Michael Cole and has challenged Cole to a match!? Unexpected, and I can't wait to see what happens. I think I know what is coming though
For the next match, I would defs mute the screen, with just Cole yapping on about what is trending and who he talked to in the back today, with no King to Shut his ass up! Anyways, it is Riley vs. Ryder, and Riley picks up another win with a strong performance. I hope you push this guy, he can be good if you use him right! Jack Swagger arrives and steals the IC Championship. That no good SOB!!! I hope he gets whats coming to him next week on Raw! Sagger and Riley should be good, if you highlight the feud properly.
Lawler arrives out and announces that itll be Cole vs. Lawler (Loser Leaves RAW). WOW!!! Shocker anouncement. And although their feud really was bad at last year's Mania, I would have had a little build up to this match, maybe have King trick Cole into accepting the match, or blackmail. But the right result for sure, getting Cole outta there and will it be.... YES! JR is back, and my fave commentary team is back. I hope this gets Lawlers old edgy commentary back, not the PG guy we had this year. On a personal note, I hope Jerry gets well very soon. Prayers are with him
Next, Tamina faces Kaitlyn and Tamina picks up the victory. A brawl ensues and we are given a huge 3 vs. 2 Tag Match next week on Raw. Overall, OK segment for the Divas, but you really wanna give people like Kaitlyn and Tamina mic time, to take it to the next level. Honestly, I havent really got into the Divas feud as of yet, I dont really know why bro, maybe Im so out of the real divas product, it is strange to actually see a feud going on there.
Next, Cena picks Punks poison in the form of KOFI KINGSTON
Love his high flying style and will hpefully teach Punk respect
But WTF????? R-Truth turning his back on Kofi again, Godammit Truth! I smell a heel turn!..... hopefully
Well actually now that I write that, I guess he is already a heel
LOL at Punk GTS'ing Truth for the hell of it. One of my fave moments of the night tbh xD
Great three way promo (not in a sexual manner lol) by Kane, Miz and Show and there is clearly old wounds being reopened there. AJ has to arrive out AGAIN to sort out the bitching and moaning and makes a blockbuster announcement, a triple threat match against each other. Interesting to see how you work this, as all three men have taken a lot of damage to their characters recently, and another embarrasment could be fatal
Here we go, come on KOW!!!! Usos join our new commentary team, and KOW look to have it won. I can see it already, NEW Tag Champs.. The Kings Of Wrestling. And Hero hits the.... What!!??? NOOOOOOO!!! Fuck you PTP!! You screwed the Kings, dammit! Rockin' Out wins.. boooo!!!! Great way to get PTP over as big heels and great way to have the new Tag Team to go over without damaging KOW's rep. AJ is out again! How much more of this crap can she take? Clearly no more as after she announces two epic Tag Matches (YES! YES! YES! KOW YES! YES! YES!) AJ QUITS! WOW, what a fricking huge announcement. Who will the new Raw GM be *cough Mrs. Foley's baby boy cough*
And Cenas opponent in the Main Event..... SETH ROLLINS! Or should I say Tyle Black, and he is one pissed of dude! He is gonna ake out his wrath on Cena?? Fair enough kid! Tyler Black hits the Avada Kedavra... 1! (no way) 2! (no F***ing way) 3!.........
Holy SHIT!!!!!!!!!! Black beat Cena, Black beat Cena, Black beat Cena, Black beat Cena....... Yeah, Im done bro, that is too much!!! Nah mate but seriously, hands down most shocking and favourite moment of Raw, this one or WWE!!
Overall, decent show, although, I thought the whole Ryder/IC Title thing was gonna be explained this week???
My Rating: B
Good overall show, but a couple of things. You gotta extend you matches, instead of having one liners for a finish. And also, there could have been more promos in tonights episode. Well done
