First time this year I lost interest in the first ten minutes,think I will duck out for a few weeks. Got me some Mortal Kombat to be playing.
The Heyman return was such a let down.
It's where they go with it next week/down the line that is interesting me, is Heyman going to be back for a few shows or a long schedule? If so it could get very interesting.
Loved the email you sent to Review a Wai, Jayk.
After a hectic weekend i just couldn't stay up last night. Laurinaitis literally put me to sleep.
Woke up somewhere in the tag match. Fell back asleep.
When i got up this morning i done my usual 3 tab open;
One for a youtube of raw, one of here and one of something like prowrestling.net.
When i seen that the raw got an post-thread i was intrigued, maybe something massive went down. Oh dear God, what did i miss...
At the same time i see at the top of prowrestling.net "Paul Heyman makes a return to the wwe."
My jaw hit the floor. How? Why? All i knew was it had to be awesome.
I always said that if WWE ever convince Paul Heyman to walk back through its doors that it would be something special and i anticipated to mark out like a child. And i probably would have, had it not be spoiled on me.
Then i watched it.
Maybe it was the crowds lack of interest all night, like, it felt more like a smackdown than a raw, tbh.
Overall not a bad raw, but definitely the weakest over the last few weeks.
Where was this viral campaign thing, too?
This is what I'm picturing you like
^^^ I wish I could enjoy wrestling as much as that lad does. He went mental for the lights turning off!
Cheers rovert, haven't listened to the show yet! i recall asking about kayfabe lol.
Here's the rundown of the show :
I was sure I read that Matista was now Ziggler's bodyguard
This has to be a joke!
Paul Heyman continues the storyline on wwe.com
it's funny that heyman can have more attitude in his walk and one sentence than most "superstars" can have in a full promo!
We'll I'll be blunt, this was the worst Raw in months, possibly the worst of 2012 to be honest.
Nothing of note happened for at least the first hour. 80% of the show was structured around John Laurinaitis building more heat with everyone and anyone, John Cena, CM Punk, and now Big Show. Can't see where it's heading towards other than maybe Johnny creating some sort of faction with Tensai, Bryan, Otunga, et al.
I can foresee Big Show vs Tensai at Over The Limit for starters.
Onto Heyman, very intriguing signing. Not even the awful crowd could ruin it. I'd guess he was signed to cover the dates that Brock will miss due to his limited dates contract. Which is a great idea to keep Lesnar's storylines progressing without him needing to be on Raw every week.
Even though Paul E's probably only re-signed to be an on-screen talent, TNA really missed a golden opportunity there by not signing him.
They tried, but he wanted 100% control over everything. Considering he put ECW out of business, you can see why they were reluctant to give him it. I'd say they were more than happy to have him as head of creative and maybe promote him if things went well.
