Watching Raw right now. I will say that the opener of Truth/Sin Cara/Mysterio vs. The PTP/Cesaro is a must watch. Not because I can't really get behind 4 of the 6 involved.... but I have one word: Stunnerplex.

Stunnerplex is awesome. I'm a big Cesaro fan so anytime he is in a match, I'm down for it.

As far as Raw goes, it was by and large decent. I hate hate HATE the AJ/Cena/Vickie angle. It's just not good and it takes up too much time. Really, any angle that isn't centered around in ring action is something I'm not interested in.

Yeah, it's a deadly combination of pure trash and incredibly time consuming.

The worst part of Raw tonight? No 3MB.

That eight man tag team match was awesome. I loved every minute of it. And a big thumbs up to Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler for selling the hell out of it, too. Fans also seemed really into it.

Give me more of this every Monday!

Titus O' Neil is hilarious on commentary. Cole and Lawler couldn't pay attention because they were too busy cracking up.

Orton has been a face for quite a while. Miz being a face is more recent.

Right? You go through the pay window or something? Wash rag? Young could stand to grow some personality though. Lawler and Cole were giving him the business.

I am enjoying The Shield so far.

There was a distinct lack of 3MB.

Ziggler/Cena/stupidity takes up too much time. Even the match was ruined by the stupidity... that and a lack of selling continuity from Cena. So running the ropes tweeks his knee but hefting a 220+ pound man onto his shoulders doesn't? Give me a break.

Cesaro/Sheamus was good. Big Show coming out right before the match ended was more distracting that effective.

No Orton tonight. Surprising.

Despite being 3 hours long, Raw never seems to have quite enough time to get everything in. There has been a lot less wasted time on BS but they always seem to have at least one angle going that is just god awful. Unfortunately, in this case, that Raw is being featured exceptionally heavily.

Most definitely. I thought it was a pretty good episode too.

Cesaro Neutralizing Khali was particularly impressive.
The Rock/Punk promo was excellent. Really sold the match to me at least.
The TLC match was good except for the finish. I knew The Shield would interfere, but that was a bit too obvious.
I am legitimately interested in whatever they're going to do with Brad Maddox, though he looks too much like Mac from It's Always Sunny
Sheamus is boring me lately. I don't want him to be fun loving and friendly, I want him to be an Irish Killing Machine.
I wasn't crazy about the whole opening promo segment, though the Cena/Ziggler match was very decent.

I had almost no idea what was going on, but it was a fair episode. Still not used to it being 3 hrs. Expected to see the Rock at least once before 11.

I was kind of surprised Rock didn't pop up earlier too, but it might have diminished what was a really hot promo at the end of the night if he had come out sooner. Apparently he is on Smackdown this week too.

I had thought Brock might show up all night until he actually did. Even then, it was so teased out that I thought he might attack Heyman at first. Also, that video where Heyman has the Shield beat Maddox up was some gangland shit. Awesome stuff. Raw Roulette is still stupid though.

I have a feeling we're going to get Cena/Ryback/Sheamus vs The Shield at the PPV.... in Elimination Chamber match (basically the match will be like War Games I guess). The only thing is, Sheamus wouldn't be able to compete in the Smackdown Elimination Chamber Match (Whether it's for the WHC or #1 Contendership to it I'll be shocked if there isn't one for SD).

I could see that. I always liked War Games... and wouldn't mind them doing that either. But yeah, I could see what you're saying happening.

Why must they take serious characters and make them "funny"? Tensai is the latest victim of this.

Good God Almighty... The Jack Swagger Real American gimmick is going to be incendiary. Dutch Mantell spouting Nationalist ideology is going to piss a lot of people off. I have to wonder how long it is going to run before it gets canned. At some point it is going to cross the line. It will probably toe that line for a bit, but it definitely is going to get WWE in trouble.

I don't have any problem with how he looks, but I don't feel like the singlet is doing him any favors.

The Undertaker has not been seen in Dallas, Texas where Raw is being taped, at least as of 7 PM ET. While it is possible that he's being hidden, it is more likely that he won't be at the show.

Credit: PWInsider


So basically, they have no idea if Taker is there or not. I remain slightly hopeful that we get a Triple Threat at Mania instead of Cena/Rock & Taker/Punk, because I really don't care for those two singles matches.

EDIT: Well, Punk just killed my hope with that promo.

EDIT 2: Well it's official, in WWE: Mainstream media attention > Following your own Wellness Policy.

It always has been though, you can't expect them to break precedence and worry about the law.

In other news, that was one hell of a main event tonight. I haven't seen a legit non-Tombstone piledriver in WWE in I don't know how long. That match was pretty much the match I wish they had on any of the summer PPVs. Yeah, we've seen them fight about a thousand times now, but Punk and Cena really work well together.

Yeah, the match rocked, though I feel Cena's big win over Punk was wasted by being given away for free on Raw. Since Punk wasn't winning, I would have simply saved the match for the PPV after Mania and have Cena win there. Have Punk get the title shot by claiming Cena still hasn't beaten him, the match would sell itself. Too late now though.

I was shocked Cena took a piledriver. That's a move, that as WWE's Golden Boy, I would never expect WWE to have Cena risk taking, especially so close to Wrestlemania.
