Monday was the best RAW I've seen in years, hands-down; it started off with awesomeness, and it ended with it.
I was expecting Taker to go after Lesnar, just because they have actual irl disdain for each other, and it'd make for an awesome match. However, what Trips did was some of the most awesome shit I've seen on RAW in ages. Brock's busted noggin left blood trails all over the damn place, and he sold the 2nd header-into-the-pole perfectly.
Cena vs. Punk was far more awesome than I'd expected. Punk's piledriver surprised the hell out of me, and I was actually impressed w/ Cena for pulling a Hurricanrana, of all things. Given Cena's size, that move could've gone horribly wrong; so the fact that he pulled it off was applaud-worthy.
I was gonna say how glad I was to see Swagger back, not jobbing & all, but then I saw what avie said.......gahdamnit. I hate it when people w/ a lot of talent & potential take their careers for granted. I mean, I didn't think he was gonna win anyway (or, if he did, Dolph would obviously cash in & take it anyway), but for fuck's sake, man!
Mark Henry, on the other hand, I can still say good things about right now. I'm actually surprised he hadn't retired after the injury, which he still worked through for some time afterward, iirc; I figured he was done. But nope, he's back to maiming the roster in the way that only he can, and he hasn't lost his touch whatsoever. :P
After last week's Main Event, I'm wondering if we'll see Show vs. Miz at WM.

CM Punk declares himself a god. See: Red circles on the inside of his taped up hands- a reference to the blood from the nails that held Jesus on the cross.
The Undertaker is an antichrist type figure. Ladies and gentlemen, we have ourselves a story.
You be onto something. Taker has to face somebody; since Trips has Lesnar, and I can only assume Punk will be in a WM match somewhere, this makes absolute sense.
