Kevin’s Blog: Almost Live, Definitely Half Assed Review of Raw

I watched Tough Enough first. I waited to watch Raw.

I couldn’t quite pass up watching this show. Austin screwing with them at the ending is awesome. This show he is coming away looking the best. He’s rattling cages. Not too surprised Jeremiah got booted. The show seemed to be leaning that way. He can get into wrestling easy with more time. Andy has more stepping to do to win this competition.

Starting my viewing at 9:45. I should be able to catch up. It’d be nice to be ready for bed at a decent time. Nice little troops tribute. We go black then R-Truth pops on the screen with no sound. Is this planned? A sign, more black back to the no sound R Truth. Always a fun gimmick. We get a little bit of sound. Cole calling Truth bizarre. They are playing the problems as an angle. Nice of Truth to find the plant family. Sound is acting dumb again. I’m all for different beginnings but this sucks. I do dig the crazy R Truth guy. Wow, who is the broad in the front row in the tie top ref’s jersey. She’s pretty fucking hot. R Truth versus Cena in the main event.

Kharma to speak live? What the hell, she’s got to explain the pregnancy? Awesome.

Kofi Kingston takes on my boy Dolph Ziggler, who went to Kent State. Oh, did I mention that their baseball team is ranked #25 and just won the MAC regular season and tournament securing a bid in regionals for the third time in four years? You didn’t think I’d pass up a chance to toot horns, did you? Cole apologizes to Lawler again. At least they acknowledged the awkwardness. Vickie is looking better these days. Still can’t fix that face though. The match was not impressing me early. It barely got traction before the commercial.

PWO – Season 4 – Episode 13

PWO is getting "Hammered" again.

Joe Dombrowski points to someone who ends up being Aaron Maguire who is wearing a neck brace. Dombrowski wonders if Maguire is on drugs. (I sure hope so after a neck injury) Krimson versus Gregory Iron is the main event. Greg “The Hammer” Valentine is going to be interviewed by Dombrowski. N8 Mattson takes on Ben Fruith.

Bobby Beverly came out to defend the TV Title against Michael “The Bomber” Facade. Pedro De Lucca did formal introductions. Both Aeroform and Sex Appeal are banned from ring side. Exchanges of mat moves started things. They exchanged kicks to the gut. Beverly got a two after a suplex. Botched move where the opponents barely bummed shoulders then Beverly had to punch Facade. Facade twirled multiple time for a head scissors take over. Pescado onto Beverly on the outside sends us to commercial.

Analysis: The opening to this match was terrible. Not only was that incident botched, Facade looked to be going 50% in the ring. Not his usual speed. Beverly looked fine. Score: -1.

Facade missed a spring board moonsault but got a two count out of it. Beverly drop kicked Facade’s knee then gave him an enziguri. Crisp looking snap driver from Beverly.  Beverly danced like he was going for a thrust kick. When he went for it, Facade grabbed his leg and turned into an ankle lock. Jason Gory came from nowhere and jumped up on the ring apron, Facade shoulder blocked him to the guard rail and looked at him. Beverly caught Facade with the thrust kick when he turned around. Beverly got the victory. Dombrowski blamed the loss on Gory. Gory came back into the ring and got into Beverly’s face. Beverly swung at Gory who locked in a choke hold and covered his mouth. Gory put the TV Title on Beverly’s chest then stomped on it. Gory left the ring. Maguire sided with Gory’s blatant choke.

Analysis: I made sure I noted Maguire’s stance because that would seem to tell me (along with Dombrowski complaining about Gory) that they’re positioning Beverly as a face. They’d have to turn the rest of Sex Appeal or have Beverly go out on his own and let Bobby Shields & Nicki Valentino as heels. That’s early speculation though, nothing wrong about doing it this way. I mentioned the TV Title log jam in the last episode, turning one of the heels face is another way to solve that log jam. Same song as the first half of this match in terms of execution.
