Nice blog it was a bad raw here's to hoping a better one next week
Great blog, couldn't agree any more.
The Cody Rhoes interview and match with Randy Orton was tremendously done. Just being able to have a tangible emotion towards his ambiance in the ring and mic was great.
For the WHC feud between RVD and ADR has been poorly and I mean POORLY built up. I have no interest for their match at Night of Champions whatsoever. I feel like the WHC is not much of a title with this feud.
I am gonna disagree with the Divas match. No doubt I get your point and agree they should have had a longer match as well as a clean finish, but what they did in having all 3 of them getting to face AJ at NoC was fine with me. And since when do Triple Threats have DQs? Changing the rules WWE.
Lastly, since when does Big Show care for Daniel Bryan? I get why he is against the Shield, but Daniel Bryan is the reason Big Show is the shortest reigning WHC in the history of the WWE. Why cry that Daniel Bryan is getting beat up?
Agree for the most part but I'm started to get annoyed by fans complaining about how the Corporate storyline has been played so far. For years fans have been complaining that WWE hasn't been presenting long term storylines and now they are doing one they want them to hotshot it. The new corporation has only existed for 3 weeks so now's not really the time for them to show weakness and the weekly beatdowns are very similar to what the McMahon-Helmsley regime did every week back in 2000. It's all building to a good payoff and I hope they take their time. Another thing to consider is that Randy Orton only turned heel at Summerslam and he needs to build himself up as a heel. I know that will bring criticism from some but think of it this way, although fans in the IWC have been waiting for Orton to turn heel since late last year and some fans find him boring, Orton was very over as a babyface with casual fans (just listen to the pops he used to get) and he needs time to re-establish himself as a heel after 3 and half years as a face. I'll be tuning in each week to see what happens
I was waiting for this blog to show up on the board.
I actually watched all of Raw on Monday. I did it with this blog in mind. I tried determining on my own what I felt were hits and misses on the show.
What I found was that the segments involving Cody Rhodes, and the match w/ Orton, was the only hit of the entire night. I didn't find anything else even remotely intriguing. With this New Corporation storyline, Raw has ended the same exact way for 3 straight weeks. I find that hardly entertaining.
Plus, Daniel Bryan's mismatch against The Big Show only serves to show that, in all honesty, and in all respect to Daniel Bryan as the underdog and the road he travelled, he's not a top guy. He's over with the crowd but I don't see him as someone who can potentially be a long term Top Guy. There's nothing realistic about that concept.
Are we really not mentioning Shelton Benjamin, Monty Brown, Maven, or Vader?
Another good Raw, The Shield as henchmen have helped elevate them again but imo Daniel's opening promo was a bit meh, he was being too goody goody in my eyes, he needs to be more pissed off, Triple H and Randy Orton have screwed him out of the WWE Championship...I want some anger, but i'm sure we'll get it soon. Heyman's attack on Punk was awesome, Brock Lesnar needs to be in this feud though, Curtis Axel just doesnt seem like a threat :/ AJ's pipebomb was awesome, hopefully Natalya gets a shot at the championship. RVD should beat Del Rio for the title only for Ricardo to cost him the title down the line, or maybe cost him the title at NOC cos Del Rio doesn't really need ANOTHER title run. As for the yescalade, I kept hoping for Bryan to pull out a bat and start smashing the windows, shame The ending was awesome, when this anti-corporation group emerges it's going to be mayhem! We need Steph and Vince along with Trips though, makes them look like a powerful group, I'm sure they just wanted the scene to be different from last weeks though, I expect to see them next week on Raw
