So after a very, VERY bad Raw, does this one hold up, especially after Money in the Bank?
WWE Raw Review – 7/16/12
Recap of what happened last week:
So…. Much….. HATE!!!!!!
Three matches that were less than two minutes each.
Bob Backlund came out to pwn Heath Slatter. No one cared.
AJ proposed to CM Punk. Daniel Bryan proposed to her. There was a match in there between all three plus Eve-Tessmacher. Ended with AJ slapping both men and skipping away. No one cared.
Tag action that ended with a DQ because Show pulled Cena out of the ring and beat him and Kane up. Cena pwned Show with a ladder after Show tried to break Jericho by squishing him with a ladder. No one cared.
SO MUCH HATE!!!!!!
Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler had a Wrestlemania REMATCH THAT NO ONE WANTED WHICH ENDED WITH THE RESOLUTION OF THE FUCKING STUPID ROBOT GM THAT TURNED OUT TO BE FUCKING HORNSWOGGLE AND GAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DEEP WANG!!!!
Yeah it wasn’t a great Raw. And TNA Impact was better than Raw. Also, there was a PPV the upcoming Sunday. What, didn’t you know? Results are as follow:
R-Truth and Kofi retain the titles against Hunico and Camacho, Ziggler won the World heavyweight champion Money in the bank match, Miz returned and now looks like Kyle Reese from the first Terminator movie, Sheamus retained the title and Ziggler tried to cash in, but was promptly pwned, Primo and Epico beat Darren Young and Titus O’neal and no one gave a fuck, AJ ditches Daniel and Punk during the match, but Punk retained the title so no one cared, random diva match that no one cared, Ryback killed some dudes, Cena won the WWE Money in the bank title match by accident, and no one is surprised.
One week away from episode 1000 and with several weeks of less than stellar episodes, plus the somewhat lackluster Money in the Bank, who knows what’s going to happen on this episode. What’ll happen with the whole Daniel Bryan/AJ/CM Punk love triangle that has just descended into a bad soap opera? Who will be the next WWE Legend to beat the tar out of Heath Slatter? Who will Cena burry now since Big Show was defeated? How long will it take me to have a Spoony Styled “WRESTLE! WRESTLE!!” break down or have a “Betrayal!” moment? All this and more on this episode of Jaded Raw Reviews.
( Check under the hoodCollapse )
Well it was better than last week, but by a little bit. It’s gonna be obvious that Cena will lose next week with what Big Show said. Plus, didn’t you know that next week is episode 1000? It’s not like it wasn’t SHILLED LIKE TEN TIMES DURING THE SHOW! As for the rest of it, there were some good moments and matches. Punk/Show and Dolph’s promos were also quite good. Disappointed by the lack of reaction to Rey and Miz from the crowd. I can see this AJ/Daniel wedding going to end in tears. Overall, I give it a 5 out of 10, especially for Rikishi coming out and his dance with the Usos.
Next week, Raw episode 1000 and the jump to three hours. Will it suck?
