Kevin’s Blog: Almost Live, Definitely Half Assed REview of @WWE #Raw

I’m an idiot for making plans to go to Raw while the Steelers play on Monday Night. They should slap around the Chiefs but I thought that about the Raiders & Titans. At least I get the returning of Jerry Lawler. Thank goodness I don’t get to hear that disaster.

The Miz tells Paul Heyman that him and Punk are full of crap. The Miz quits the team. Interesting start to the show.

R Truth just cut his best promo since the invention of Little Jimmy on Tout. They’re starting off with a six man tag match with no one important. Another interesting choice. Sin Cara starts off against Antonio Cesaro. I’m not happy about Rey Mysterio wearing the Frankenmask. Nothing happens before the first commercial break. At least they’re consistent about something. Mysterio getting the job of selling since Sin Cara can’t get that right either. R Truth gets the luke warm tag against Cesaro. Fun jaw jacker from Truth. A 619 by Rey puts Truth in position to give Cesaro the Downward Spiral for the win. They are really forcing that rivalry. It’s a nice stepping stone for Cesaro.

We get Vickie Guerrero and John Cena recap. Why are Jim Ross and Mitchell Cool wearing the same suit? Why is Jack Swagger in the crowd? My girl makes a good point in saying that a PG show shouldn’t be having a slutty storyline. For some reason the English crowd is eating up the bad Cena jokes. AJ goes into a door. This hotel has more security cameras than your average hotel. AJ is back stage somewhere because she will give Vickie the beating of her life. My boy Dolph Ziggler knows what AJ loves to do. For some reason, Cena chases after them. This storyline does feel like the AJ baby momma drama without the baby.

Paul Heyman is talking to Wade Barrett about joining Team Punk. Barrett doesn’t trust him. But Heyman is going to owe him one. The crowd is bonkers for Team Hell No. Daniel Bryan is wrestling Cody Rhodes. I’m tired of noting the people who do and don’t have entrances. They don’t give a care about the in ring product. The match length confirms it. Two guys who can go get three minutes at most. Rhodes with Cross Rhodes for the win. Rhodes runs his mouth after the match. They go to commercial as they tease a Kane vs Damien Sandow.

@PrimeWrestling – Season 6 – Episode 2

There was a theme to this show. Guess why the picture applies.

This review will be interesting. I’m watching on my lap top so it’ll be a chore to flip between the  action and typing up the report. “Amazing” N8 Mattson returns to the ring to take on Gregory Iron. Benjamin Boone is accompanying Mattson. I’d have to take a look at their website but Iron’s new shirt looks pretty nice. Mattson looks like he could have hit the gym a little bit more before making his comeback. Plenty of stalling to start the match. Joe Dombrowski counters my observation by saying that Mattson looks to have been hitting the gym during his time off. Mattson shoulder blocked Iron down. He charged at Iron again but got chopped. Mattson poked him in the eye. Iron came back with more chops. Mattson kneed him in the stomach in response. Boone strangles Iron while Mattson distracts the referee. Mattson taunts Iron while he kicks him while he’s down. Iron sneaks in a small package but got nailed with a high boot coming out of it. Mattson only gets a two count from a fisherman’s suplex. Mattson locked in a sleeper. Iron didn’t drop the arm the third time. Iron jaw jacks Mattson. Iron got caught in a small package by Mattson. Iron cross bodied him for a two count. Boone grabbed Mattson leg after an Irish Whip. Mattson kicked Iron who was down for a back body drop. Mattson nailed the M80 for the win.

Analysis: I wish Mattson hadn’t gotten help on his return to the ring. He’s been gone for a year. Establish that Iron is in trouble without Gowen by having him loss clean. Good match in the ring though. Score: 0.

Krimson was on old film that kept flipping like an old horror movie.He said that every absurdity has it’s champion. Krimson told Johnny Gargano it was his title for the taking. He then warned Rhino that he spent his whole career being the hunter. Krimson asks if he’d like to be hunted. Krimson doesn’t care who wins their match next week because he will take them out. Analysis: The production on his promos is so far above anything else. The horror story film is a nice touch and advances his theme that started black and white. I liked his message too. Krimson continues his roll. Score: +1.

Vic Travagliante said that his turn was the most unexpected turn of Wrestlelution 5. Vic said he was tired of being Justin LaBar’s errand boy. Vic said that he has done everything for this company but he hasn’t gotten the TV time or advancement that LaBar has. Vic warned that LaBar’s days were numbered in the company. Analysis: A well delivered simple message even if the turn was in no way unexpected. Score: +1.
