Fighting evil by moonlight, winning love by daylight, never running from a real fight because it is time to WAKE UP! It's Raw, live from "Long Island", NY...and a Fashion Report, too!

Trish, in shiny grey trenchcoat, black top and sparkly black/gold bellbottoms, and Lita, in black tanktop, green hotpants, and orange arm-wraps, vs. Jazz, in sparkly white bra and skirt, with Teddy, and Molly, in white/black top and black pants. Jack Doan is the official. The ramp is camera-right. This closed-captioning is really poor quality. Teddy distracts Trish by throwing his suitcoat. Jazz with the rollup and holding the pants for the pin. Post-match, a beatdown, but Jericho comes out for the save. Then Mark Henry comes down for HIS save.

Coach, in black shortsleeves and backwards red cap, has joined Lawler, in sparkly gold shirt and JR, in black hat and grey sportscoat and white shirt, on commentary. Actually, he did this during Trish's entrance.

Mattitude, already in the ring, in black/silver open shirt and black/silver pants, speaks. Wow - he must've been reading Wienerboard, 'cuz he knows just how to dis Austin. So Austin, in sleeveless black "F0CK FEAR" tshirt, denim shorts, and kneebraces, drives out on his little 4-wheeler (can't he fuckin walk?). Austin blah blahs, talking trash. Hardy wants a match with someone he's never faced before (you know what's coming...just wait for it). Finally, Goldberg, in black fullcuts with white trim and barbedwire butt, comes out to have a match. And, all of a sudden, Hebner's in the ring.

Mattitude vs. Goldberg. Goldberg has a beard - that does not look good. Spear, jackhammer, pin. Squash. Post-match, Goldberg talks about entering the Royal Rumble.

Bisch, in black suit, coming out of his Room of Fun, meets up with Austin. Austin and Bisch discuss "the law".

Randy's "Mick Foley" commercial. Here is Randy, in black "Evolution" tshirt, the IC Title over his shoulder. He calls-out Foley (who lives only 15 minutes away).

DVon, in cut-up black "Dudley Boyz 3D" tshirt and green/gold camo pants, with Bubba, vs. Batista, in black undies with red flame, wearing the Tag Title, with Flair. Bubba's trying to grow a beard, too. Sitdown powerbomb -> pin. Post-match, physicality ensues.

Randy, in the garage, is sending Mick a limo, so that Mick may arrive at the arena. Meanwhile, Jazz and Mark Henry talk in the back; Teddy comes by to rip on "Whitey". Apparently Bisch has booked Henry vs. Jericho, for later tonight. Meanwhile (x2), Goldberg is walking. Steiner comes by to talk smack. Goldberg challenges Steiner; book a match for NEXT week. Meanwhile (x3), Coach talks. But first, it's time for Adbreak.

Coach is in the ring, with two chairs, a table, and a red carped. Coach introduces HHH, in black iron-cross tshirt and black slacks, with a bottle of water, the World Heavyweight Title over his shoulder. Coach also introduces Michaels, in black "The Source of Strength" tshirt and black jeans. Shawn tosses the furniture, and the two of them proceed to talk. The talk about friendship, who carried who, who's better, and then they each say that they will win. Oh, and Shawn totally superkicks Coach's head off (to a rousing ovation).

Lets see Coach get superkicked again.

BookerT, to his crappy new music, in black hot-crotch flamin' "BookerT" undies, with FOOTAGE! of last week's confrontation with Kane, vs. Kane, in black tights with red stripes. Um...double-count-out? DQ? Idunno. A poor match. Post-match, Kane destroys Booker, ending with a Tombstone.

Another Mick/Randy commercial.

Mark Henry, in red "Mark Henry" singlet with gold trim, with Jazz and Teddy, vs. Jericho, in red tights with silver splats. Henber officiates. Jericho rips-out one of Henry's locks of hair! Trish comes down to get Jazz. Jericho locks-in the Walls and Henry taps, but Hebner is distracted by the ladies. So Henry no-sells the Walls and slams Jericho for the pin. Nice match. (Sigh - Jericho wrestling as a face. How dreamy.)

In the ladies' locker room, Stacie gives Trish advice about her Jericho relationship. (Yeah, like YOU've had a good track record with your past relationships, Stacie.)

In his locker room, Jericho receives advice from Christian! about his Trish relationship. The men leave for a guy's night out, mere seconds before Trish arrives to confess her undying love and devotion (or tell him to fuck-off...whatever).

In the back, Evolution plans to handle Mick, should he arrive. Oh-ho, Austin drives-by (holy fuck, why doesn't he chase down Jericho to serve as a messenger of love?) and talks some stuff. Then he shows-off his vehicular mastery (am I the only one who thought it would be funny if he spun-out?).

Randy, in red "Orton" undies with black hip bolts, carrying the IC Title, vs. Rob, in black "RVD" singlet with coiled green dragon and ying-yang. Chioda is the referee, in black/white stripes. Randy goes to the ringpost and, slowly, comes up bloodied. (In the back...it's a car!) Adbreak takes this opportunity to shine.

Randy vs. Rob, cont. Randy is in control. Then much back-and-forth. A ref bump! Orton plays possum (ha!). Top-rope front face lock -> DDT -> pin (wow!). A good match. The best I've ever seen out of Orton yet.

Overall: The commentary, along with the rest of the show, improved when the Jericho vs. Henry match started. Before that, it was not very entertaining. But, it left a good taste in my mouth. So I'll say it's a below-average show.

I am SO enjoying Orton. Orton was great in everything he was involved in tonight. Great main event, great promo on Foley, great “Friends of Orton” spots. Aside from throwing me for a loop when he said he was going to “start” what he “finished” with Foley...Huh?!?

HHH’s promo this week didn’t live up to last week’s, but that’s okay because it was just fodder building up to Michaels, and Michaels’ few words and one kick to Coach was awesome. Outstanding promo.

How refreshing is it that Batista actually took the position that NOBODY’S going through a table?

Was there ever anybody more qualified to make a statement like “love stinks” than Lawler?

Love Canadian Style. Aint it a bitch?

If Orton always moved at the speed he was going at tonight, I might not hate the earth he walks on. That was actually quite impressive

Raw Thoughts:

Get Coach outta the booth, PLEEZE!....The ladies tag match was decent, but the "heel uses the tights on the roll-up to get pin" is SO played.....Who is John Henson and why should I care (I know, he was on Talk Soup...bad name for TV Show)....Well, everybody got their wish- Mattitude back on RAW! I don't think this is how most people had hoped he'd return though. Seriously, squash one of your most popular wrestlers who is actually GOOD in the ring, on the mic and connects with fans, instead of 2/3 of the RAW roster no one cares about. Another genius move by WWE....Damn, I was looking forward to a NEW Orton commercial....I love when D-Von shakes his leg after getting hit with a high-impact manuever. Okay squash....Uh-oh, Steiner v.s Goldberg could get "bowling shoe ugly" next week. This has got to be someone's idea of a joke....

Highlight of the night was the Trips/HBK interview segment. Good intensity from both parties. Man, Triple H's face looks MAJORLY bloated....Oh God, their using that crappy Booker T. music from that crappy new CD....Ah, there's the new RKO commercial....Okay, RVD is fighting in the main event tonight, and we haven't even heard of seen of him tonight. Way to build up the challenger!....Not a big fan of that Jericho-Henry match. Some parts were pretty ugly....Real good main event match that should help Orton get to the next level.

But it had MATTITUDE! The man who will single-handedly triple RAW's ratings! Maybe if he was used later in the show, RAW wouldn't have peaked so early.

Pretty much my thoughts... except add after the Side Effect off the top rope "Holy shit, could it be possible that the WWE is still pissed off at Goldberg and are going to give Matt Hardy the win?" and end it with "Fuck this shit." and a click as the TV goes off.

I was actually looking forward to seeing if Jericho could pull a good match out of Mark Henry like he did with Steiner and Goldberg, but it looks like I'm done watching WWE until Wrestlemania.

Everyone seems to have enjoyed the promo with HHH and HBK. I thought it was rather drawn out, and towards the end had me flipping the channel. I came back just in time to see the reply of the super kick to Coach.

It might just be me, but jeebus, I am tired of seeing the two of them go at it every second PPV. It's getting played out.

Maybe it's just me...

The only thing worse than not even bothering to show anyone in the limo would've been Linda getting out of it.

Good main event, awful Raw. Evolution should get hazard pay for standing so close to a rip-roaringly drunk Austin spinning out on the ATV.

PS: John Henson is funny.

Damn dude, me and you thought the SAME exact thing.

I enjoyed the show a slight bit less than last week, a pretty damn good main event, but the undercard was weak. I got to admit I like the whole Foley/Orton storyline, even though there are younger guys more worthy for the rub than Orton. My problem was not with the whole Foley not showing up part, but with the Foley showing up being the main plot and not a subplot.

My thing is everytime a limo shows up, I usully dont like what follows. This kinda of reminded me of that Raw a couple weeks after Montreal where they hyped Bret Hart coming back to face HBK, hyped this limo in the parking lot all night, and it turned out it was a midget.

Jericho got trashed tonight, screwy ending or not it's sad cause I still don't see anyone besides Goldberg being in line to face HHH at WMXX. That just don't exicte me. Hopefully he will come out of this Trish storyline looking like a million bucks, but i doubt it.

Doesn't Foley live in Florida?

That aside, an average Raw saved by a very good main event. Orton's best match ever; I like his touch of making rest holds look like they actually hurt, with the facial expressions and counterholds and whatnot.

Apparently Goldberg is back because Bischoff became lazy and didn't do his paperwork. Hey, thanks a lot slack-ass! Inexcusible offense Eric! Who'd think you are, Paul Heyman?

Because of this I thought I'd come out of retirement to recap one segment of RAW. Good to see that Steiner comes around....the HOOOOOOOOOOOOORN!

These Two Things I KNOW Are True: Blarg v Arg

Scott: In case you forgot our history, you can't beat me. (Wrong - Mute) You can't beat the Genetic Freak! You're not going the win the Rumble! I AM! (+2 - That was probably Steiner's best argument ever.)

Goldberg: You don't think I can beat you, huh? (+3 - GREAT observation, seeing as he JUST SAID THAT!) Who the hell wants to wait 'til Rumble? (Mute - I'll wait! Plus, don't just call it "Rumble") Why don't we get it on [dramatic pause] TONIGHT? (+2 - Crowd pops always work)

Scott: Whoa, whoa, you just got done wrestling man! (+2 for actually watching RAW) I want you at 100% and when I beat you. (MUTE) You got one week to prepare, but don't be too afraid to show up!(+3 for including tonight's theme ingredient - cowardess.)

Goldberg: One week? You know what that means, don't you Scotty? It means............YOU'RE NEXT!

STEINER WINS 5 to 4! (I rigged it)

Ok, what was with Batista and the table? It must be so refreshing it went over my head.

RVD is adored by the fans = IC title shot
RVD is hated by HHH = no promo time

Booker T is adored by fans = feud with the big man
Booker T is black = he gets trampled

You know, if you just remove Austin, Goldberg, politics, and all steroids from this picture, I would find it quite satisfactory.

And I saw the opener, Austin come out in the ATV, and mercifully, D came to spirit me away. Was it just me, or was Lita's rana over the ropes worse than any spot Jackie's blown?
