maybe, but that was befoer he was Raven. This is when is is supposed to be dark and brooding.

Given what today is I think wwe will probably have some mention of the 9/11 attack, but lets just hope they keep it in good taste. Them reflecting on it is fine as long as it doesn't get out of hand.

I don't think Mcmahon will do anything dumb, especially after the shots he took because of the IRwin comment just last week. if anything the WWE will make a video in memory of those who perished in 9/11 or a video to honor the troops.... Besides, its Madison Square Garden, Mcmahon won't screw things up there.

Remember Stephanie McMahon's comments about 9/11 five years ago? That was in bad taste. It won the Wrestling Observer award for Most Disgusting Promotion tactic of 2001. I don't want to get flammed for this but, What would it be like if Muhammad Hassan were to return to WWE tonight? I want WWE to do a 9/11 tribute that's in good taste. But knowing WWE, It'll probably be in bad taste like the Eddiesploitation angle.

You won't get flamed... because we're talking about Vince mcmahon so everything's possible with that guy. As for what would happen if Hassan returned tonight? I'm pretty sure the crowd would just leave, or riot, or both.

That was pretty much what he deserved for being a selfish jerk. I am still upset with both HBK and Orton jobbing to that bastard. Hopefully, he will not show up at the next Summer Slam.

It could have happened to him... except he would have left without a scratch, after he's Goldberg... (even if he does suck in the ring).

CM Punk has fallen on the P25 list for not competing last week and for slapping Shannon Moore right in his stupid mouth. BULLSHIT!

WWE (IMO) only gives pushes to Stars who will generate the most ratings, money, heat etc., but if only the knew how big of an asset Punk is, man...

I agree, how dare they push performers who've proven to make money for the company! Why the fuck would they want someone to draw in a top spot? That's nuts! Why the hell isn't Gene Snitsky the WWE champion? Let's make Sylvan World Champion, Danny Doring for ECW champion. Do you know how stupid you sound after that comment? Not to mention, they know what a fucking asset Punk is, that's why the guy is always on TV.

Well, the story about the Wellness Policy violators now being suspended without pay...is absolutely true. Talent when suspended will be pulled off of House Shows, but still used on TV and PPV so that they can keep storylines going, they are not payed for TV, for PPV, or any merchandising. They get nothing. Randy Orton is currently a part of this club....start taking bets on when his stupid ass is gonna be fired, if Kurt Angle can go, Randy Orton is certainly not immune.

This is a heinous deal by WWE I'd say. Making guys work for nothing is illegal, has to be, it's goddamn slavery. Just utter shite, sit them home, and deal with the consequences of it.

Balls violated the Wellness Program, but he will be available for TV tonight. Rough House Ryan O'Reilly, who has worked the house shows will be sitting home for 30 days.

So if you've been on TV and pushed, be prepared to work for free wrestlers...yeah, I'm gonna be with Dave Scherer in total outrage about this for awhile.

It might be brutal but it could also get the point across that wwe means buisness this time around. True that it is bad, but hey, all the wrestlers have to do is stay clean to avoid such action taken against them. Cause who the hell likes to work for free (unless your a charity/social worker but that doesn't count in this case) when you could be getting paid for your efforts and get the money made from merc sales?

So while I agree that it is an aggressive policy I do have to praise it to some degree to get some of these guys in line. Though the effectivness of it won't be known until much later. It could be a flop and be changed again in a few weeks for all we know.

I knew about Orton but I didn't kow Balls had violated the policy aswell... I agree with you somewhat, yeah its basically legal slavery to work for free, but you can't put the blame squarely on the shoulders of the high-ups in the WWE, some of the blame has to go to the wrestlers. They've been warned before, they saw what happened with RVD and if they're still breaking the policy then that's their fault... At least Orton, I mean come on you just came back from suspension a while back and you just violated the policy again? That right there seems like Orton's fault.

Hm, that was an interesting beginning moment on RAW tonight. Funny how Nitro got painted by Jeff Hardy. Although, that did ruin a nice fur coat, I say fur is murder...just kidding.

Just a question, did they stop having the feature on the website where you can watch RAW while it was on commercial?

I know the guys are big boys, and they really need to just straighten up and fly right instead of trying to cheat the system, but what happens if somebody sustains a serious injury while they work for free here? They've now lost even MORE money because of that. Not to mention, think about this in terms of your job. You're job tells you "ok, you broke our rules, so we're going to suspend you from getting paid for a month, but you're still going to be expected to show up and work" you'd call them crazy and tell them to fuck off wouldn't you? So why should it be different with WWE? Yes, these guys could just stop violating the policy, but this is complete BS that you're asking someone to put themselves at risk for potential permanent injury (and I don't give a shit what you say, everytime somebody steps between those ropes, the potential is there that a guy could be permanently injured). It's just utter self-serving shit for WWE to make people work for nothing, no matter what they did.

RAW has been real enjoyable so far, isn't it nice when they've finalized the PPV card and they can then just spend the show giving us a lot of wrestling and skits that promote all the matches? Hopefully WWE feels the same and continues to do that, they've got to stop acting like the buys are just a given, it's not the attitude era anymore.

Sabu MUST WIN TOMMOROW!!! Maybe, maybe they can get away with a screw job finish...but they've essentially backed this feud into a corner where Sabu must either win, or walk away. It's NY, it's a big moment, and this is something the ECW crowd wants, I think Sabu has paid the penalty for being stupid, and now it's time to do what's right for the brand and give him the belt. I just don't think they can do this match again after tommorow night's show unless it turns from Sabu chasing Show to Show chasing Sabu. I still think this match can headline the December PPV if they want it to, but the best thing to do right now though is get the belt off of Show, and then find a way to keep this fresh till then. Sabu vs. RVD is money...but I would really save that bout for Mania.

RAW was ok, but I'm skipping out on the main event, because I sort of lost interest in anything McMahon becomes directly involved in. That, and watching the show with family members who aren't knowledgable of the industry is pretty annoying.

You can just read the spoilers if you're that desperate to know the results.., But I agree Sabu should get the belt, if nothing else it will offer a change of pace in the title matches (especially against someone like RVD).

(and I don't give a shit what you say, everytime somebody steps between those ropes, the potential is there that a guy could be permanently injured)..

WOW!! I never knew that... I know they're risking injury but the fact remains if you don't want to risk getting hurt (for free anyways) just don't do things that violate the policy. And again I'll agree with you, its selfish of the WWE to jeopardize the careers of certain wrestlers just so they don't have to come up with a new storyline ( I blme the creative team, for not having any ideas)....

Also, Rene Dupree and Balls Mahoney are also scheduled to wrestle on ECW, so we'll finally get to see Dupree in ECW.

Also... Let's go Cena. Cena Sucks... You gotta love the New York crowd.

Haha that was great. That had me laughing for the rest of the night, Jeff needs work on backstage gags though, but I'd love to see him do more.

Was Jeff supposed to botch the jump to the outside of the ring? It seemed like he didn't clear the ropes. I thought Raw was great tonight, high quality matches.

The crowd sure was vocal during the 6 man tag. It seemed that half was for and the other against with Cena.

RAW was pretty good overall. There was a great tribute to the 9/11 victims too; I suppose that's the important thing. A great Jeff Hardy segment at the beginning too.

It was good to see Roddy Piper back in the ring. I wondered when WWE would do something with him and the Highlanders.

It now appears that the McMahons have finally realised that the Spirit Squad coundn't help them for shit, so now they seem to have got Cade and Murdoch to replace them. I'd rather see them than the Squad anyday to be honest.

Par one (DX), every face at Unforgiven won on RAW. Perhaps an indication of the aftermath of Unforgiven?

Also near the beginning of the Cryme Time segment, the voiceover guy said "OH SNAP!" I lol'd.

I just want to see Cryme Tyme in the ring (they better be good).

Like you said DX got beat up (badly) which means they'll win, also John Cena won, but he beat Nitro not Edge (I still say Cena's losing at Unforgiven). I'm thinking the Higlanders will beat he SS and I hope they do because i want the Squad to be broken up (Johnny and Kenny are too good to have such a lame-ass gimmick).

Was I the only one expecting (or at least hoping) to see Piper come out once we heard the bagpipes?

Agreed. Can anyone tell me what Mitch can actually do? And he got screwed name-wise.

Kenny! Johnny! MITCH!!!! LMFAO!! Nicky! Mikey!
Seriously it makes him look like the special one in the Squad. And I mean special in a Eugene sense.

From what I've read the crowd was very active for certain matches like Sabu and Show. I also read that CM Punk was waaaay over with the crowd and that his match with Moore was actually a stiif and hard hitting affair... I guess we'll see for ourselves in a couple of hours.... And Mike Johnson just said the truth, Vince wasn't going to allow anything to steal his spotlight at MSG.

Rowdy Roddy Piper And Jeff "That was my painting, MAN!" Hardy were my highlights of the night. I Conked out before The Trish/Mickie Match-up (Don't blame me, It was a school night) but it sounds like I missed a GREAT Spot.

Also, Good News (for those of you who care)! "Redface Says" will be making its triumphant return with a reveiw of UNFORGIVEN!
