Welcome Back Splashers for another edition for the Rick Starr Blog Splash. For the two or thee of you who got pissed and just couldn't bear to see my little promo at the end of my blog, you have my word, I will not have any promotions here...at least for this one I aim to please all. Besides, after this blog, I'm sure I'll be pissing off plenty of you WWE/ Rock marks anyway, so I need to cover up. For this I apologize in advance..
After watching this past Victory Road, which made me vomit like a drunk who had one too many, I was looking forward to Monday to get me back into the spirit..it didn't do the job. In fact, I felt like running back to the toilet for a second round. Let's start things off where things went wrong...
The Rock's Segment
For weeks Dwayne (Formerly known as "The Rock" in my book), has been dis'ed by Both Cena and The Miz on Live Television, and on the Internet. They both have insulted him, his father, his grandfather, and just about everybody in between. What has he done about it? Nothing! The only thing this has-been does does is crack some jokes, and some idol threats behind via satellite (which really means they have been taped for months). According to WWE.com He is expected to actually appear LIVE this coming RAW....Probably because he has to pick up his paycheck if you ask me.
I have been reading for the past few weeks that Dwayne is supposed to come back after WrestleMania to Wrestle Cena. I don't believe this for one second! In fact If you ask me, I think Jeff Hardy will get a clean urine test before Dwayne wrestles a match again! ( DISCLAIMER: When Hardy goes to Jail I do revoke this statement..but you get the idea)
In all seriousness I don't even bother with Dwayne's segments anymore. I thought the "10yr old Cena" was stupid, and I just fast forwarded the whole thing.
I'm sorry, but I'm over Dwayne, he just needs to go back to Hollywood. Some people may be chanting "ONE MORE MATCH!" Not me, I'm just chanting "PLEASE GO AWAY!".
Drew Carew in HoF?
This inductee really disgusted me! There are way too many deserving wrestlers who should be inducted into the Hall of Fame. So What do they do? They Induct a guy who was in one match for not even 10 seconds. I understand the purpose of having a "celebrity wing", but If your gonna have Celebrity inductees, have them inducted on a different night or something. To Put HBK and Drew Carey on in the same night, is a disgrace! It just took RAW down a few notches in my book, even though it had nothing to do with RAW directly.
"Grand Master Sexay"
There are some wrestlers that have been forgotten, and there are wrestlers that SHOULD have been forgotten! Grand Master Sexay: Brain Christopher is one of those Wrestlers that should have been forgotten! It would not have been so bad if he came down with his stupid strut. but to top it off, his bleached white hair just topped the whole package off.
The Look on Lawler's face was priceless, I almost wonder if somewhere Jerry was not happy to see him. I thought the interview was boring...much like GMS's career. GMS tried to make it out like he had a big career, but he didn't, and even his father Jerry said he was a bigger screw-up than Charlie Sheen.
Jim Ross Segment
The Jim Ross/ Cole segment was ok I guess. When it comes down to it, I guess it was needed to push the storyline forward to make Cole over as a heel. Also They needed to add J.R. into the story somehow so he can commentate a few matches
Despite her being incredibly hot, I don't see the need of a Jersey Shore Guest Host. To make things worse, Now it appears She has entered in a Mixed tag-team match at WrestleMania!? It was cool to have Dwane, and Austin, but Snookie?
I think that John Morrison has been knocked down a few pegs in the rankings as far as I'm concerned. 3 months ago he was on the hunt for the WWE World Title, then he was in Elimination Chamber for the WWE. Now he's in a Tag Team Match with a retired Diva(Trish Stratus) and a celebrity(Snooki). Hopefully he does not keep heading in this direction.
The Only other Segment that really brought the show down was the HBK segment, where he talked about The Undertaker vs HHH. The first installment was interesting, but the rest just seems to be repetitive. (Not blaming HBK, the WWE lives for replaying and remixing the same clips.)
The rest of the show in general was ok. I liked the Sheamus/Bryan US Title Match, although I expected Sheamus to win. The Orton/Mason Ryan Match was also decent. The sites expected Mason to accompany Punk to WrestleMania...My friend Vinny the Guido once said Never "believe the websites!" I guess he was right.
Well That's it for this edition Splashers! Until Next time...See You When I See You! -Rick Starr
