RookMan's RAW Review!
First off, let me say shame on you Outlaw. You stealin' mah thunda, boy? You best step off, or we'll have to have a match at Unforgiven to be the new review team on RAW (zing!)
Jericho vs. Rob Van Dam - Okay, there is no way in hell that this could have possibly been a bad match. I mean, come on, Highlight of the Night vs The Whole Dam Show? Couldn't have started RAW better myself. I also enjoyed the prelude to the match. Stone Cold needs to either be fired or be a wrestler again. and a triple threat at Unforgiven? Sweeeeet.
Rob Conway vs. Spike Dudley - What a pointless segment. And putting Spike through another table, one week removed from his injury? What idiot wrote that? And why the hell did Bubba and D-Von leave him to chase Frenchmen? Couldn't they see what would happen? Just awful...
Fabulous Moolah vs. Victoria - I loved the part where Bischoff goes to his office for two half naked women, only to find Young and Moolah. Mae Young is hilarious. Y'know, I can't believe that they're in their 80's. 50's or 60's, maybe, but 80's? Still it was a terrible match. Are we to believe Victoria can't kick out from an old woman? Another bad thing was them showing the audience when Orton RKO'd her. Why do they always do that when they're only going to sho the footage on Bottom Line anyway?
Mark Henry & Rodney Mack vs. Lance Storm & Goldust - I love Lance Storm's new intro. He is teh Pimpinest (lol). Maybe Mark Henry should go with him and Goldie. After all, did you notice that Theodore Long and Mack danced down to the ring, while Henry stood there, looking constipated? Its called "Metamucil", Mark. Unfortunately, the match sucked. I wanted Storm to whoop ass on Henry. Oh well...
Molly and Gail Kim vs. Trish - not nearly as crappy as most women's matches, but not outstanding either. The only thing i don't get is that if the point was to end Trish's career, why go for the cover? Pinning Trish was just a waste of time. And Lita's back! Hurray! Now all they have to do is bring back Jeff and move Matt to RAW!, and the universe will be made right once again...
Val Venis vs. Test - Cool match. I liked it. Now there's the guy who should get Stacy, Val Venis. I mean, Stacy is the perfect candidate to be a Venis Video Platinum Chick. And best of all, Steiner didn't ruin the match. Sure, he came out, but he never entered the ring (at least not until AFTER Val got the pin)
King vs. Al Snow - I liked it when Snow and Coach came out mocking JR and King. Snow more especially. I loved that fake King costume. The match was okay, but I didn't like the outcome. As you all know I hate King. I wanted Al to win so very, very badly...Anyway, after the match was pretty lame. If JR can be laid out be just one punch from Coach, how are we expected to believe he can beat coach at Unforgiven?
Contract Signing - Now thats what I call bustin' a nut!!! lol. I also liked the fact that when Bishoff came to the ring, people in the front row were bowing. That's more like it. Bischoff > Stone Cold.
Good Bye Party - I didn't watch it after Goldberg came down. But HHH was right. That was a special Goldberg moment.
