    Will the Raw commentary mention one of there former partners is/was part of a group of failed vinaigrettes and suddenly back in the ring?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,101 ✭✭✭ThePott


    Said I was quitting Raw for a bit but I'm not going cold turkey.
    I decided I'd give the Hulu version a go since it's shortened. At an hour and a half, it's still way too long, still skipped massive chunks.
    New commentator is not good so far, he probably shouldn't be calling the flagship show, he's not ready.

    Can't believe they bothered plugging a match as first time ever and then just didn't bother and now Randy might be injured.
    They still can't find room for their tag champions.

    Can't stand Charlotte's Karen Queen character not in a heat way in a change the channel way. Did they really bring her back to TV, set-up an angle and now write her off?
    I will credit Raw with giving me a few good laughs (all unintended). Alexa's doll being photoshopped into pics badly and her telling a story of pushing a girl off the swing genuinely made me laugh for how bad it is.

    What even is the pay-off to this Alexa/Lily story?
    Does the Doll have powers? What? Will that ever be addressed?
    If it's been around the whole time why did Alexa never think to use them?
    I'm already thinking about it more than the writers did.
    Raw is the pits (keeping it clean).

    Ms Miz is getting better with age

    I thought she was written out for dental work

    Actually thought this week was much better than last... though it's an extremely low bar to jump that being said. I absolutely despise the next PPV name, it's absolutely cringeworthy. What happened to Vince's fetish for shortening names, apparently it's only for the actual wrestlers :rolleyes:

    Anyways I didn't get the whole Braun coming to help Drew bit or unmasking the Retribution lads, it was all a bit daft. Actually loved Charlotte going mental. Presumably she gets involved at the PPV again in some capacity.

    Was kinda hoping Sheamus would 'rebrand' the US Title but I thought his stuff was good. Would love him to get one more run with the big strap but he's getting some good airtime which is great to see.

    Sending Alexa back into the women's division should be interesting. There's such a divide in quality between the top and bottom of the women's roster - again evident with the Tag match. Putting Dana Brooke beside Mandy is... not very flattering to her, I'll be honest. Hopefully that's the start of the break up of Nia and Shayna and she goes over in their inevitable break up feud to push her back up the card.

    So if he doesn't appear next week, are we just supposed to forget Reginald existed?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,101 ✭✭✭ThePott


    Thought it was strange he appeared on the graphic for the Mania tag match in the stadium and then had no appearance at all.

    Guess there keeping the Mace and T bar characters

    Dio Madden and Dominik Dijakovic never existed


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,269 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Mace is very very green in the ring. Quite sloppy that match. He's athletic but must have missed three or four spots that I noticed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 85,847 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    RKBro :p


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,951 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Is that the shortest "indefinite suspension" ever?

    So Sonya is full heel now.

    Angel clearly completely broken up by Charly leaving that he's now going for Nia?


  • Registered Users Posts: 85,847 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    So Adam Pearce and Sonya are in charge on both shows, is Sonya cleared to wrestle?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,211 ✭✭✭LineOfBeauty


    Morrison getting thwacked in the balls by a rogue tomatoe the definitive highlight of Raw.

    Not Alexa and Lilly no?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,211 ✭✭✭LineOfBeauty


    Not Alexa and Lilly no?

    That's become my highlight every week, so the ball thwacking tomatoe really was a nice way to mix it up a bit and remember there's more to wrestling than just demonic pixie children and their possessed puppets. It put everything back into perspective for me.

    I thought the one that smacked Miz in the face was funnier :P

    Tentatively liking this RKBro... fully expect to be let down badly

    And we will all be shocked when "The Viper Randy Orton Hits An RKO Out Of Nowhere On Riddle"

    It's a shame Lashley doesn't have a decent feud because he's the coolest looking world champ wrestling has had in years. The entrance is amazing too.

    Kazuchika Okada, Brock Lesnar, Kota Ibushi, Roman Reigns. Based purely on look those 4 off the top of my head are miles beyond Lashley in respect of look and aura.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,269 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Lashley was actually cooler when he had a full Hurt Business backing him up.. not an erm... crippled MVP, good and all as he is on the stick.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,101 ✭✭✭ThePott


    Anything worth watching on the show this week?

    Is Charlotte back already?

    Another meh nothing episode

    The miz performance was entertaining enough, as was the whole Drew,Braun and the 2 lads stuff

    Riddle still annoying as ever and its a small bit odd he could be in a tag team with Randy Orton. RKbro is a catchy name ill have to admit

    When did Rhea become a heel ?

    Did I miss why MVP has the stick even though he pulls it off

    He injured his knee back in February.

    The cane just worked when all four of them were together not so much now it's just MVP & Bobby.

    The Hurt Business worked with all 4 members in suits looking bad ass it was a great look.


    MVP & Bobby without Shelton & Cedric just doesn't work for me.
