Just read the Ross Report and guess what? Randy Orton had shoulder surgery Thursday and will miss 3-4 months as a result. JEEZ! We have a blue-chipper down!
Think of all the people who are hurt on Raw in mid-push - Kanyon, Rhyno, Jazz, Lita, Nash (yes, Nash) and others have fallen prey to what I will now call the Curse of the Raw Roster. No one has any luck there. Perhaps this is one of the reasons Raw hasn't been any good lately - they have tried to build many talents, but haven't had time because of injuries. Notice I said ONE of the reasons, in a sea of reasons.
The next thing you know, Batista will tear his ACL in his first match after all the hype and promos. Let's hope Booker, Goldust and RVD remain healthy or Raw will be unwatchable (yes, I know, snicker snicker, it already IS unwatchable, but you know what I mean).

Meanwhile, Triple H remains unscathed...

Wait... maybe that's why Lawler didn't return to commentate after his match...

One can always hope.

And what WWE Superstars who regularly appeared on TV have been let go/quit/whatever since the roster split? Austin, from RAW. Hennig, from RAW. Hall, from RAW. X-Pac, from RAW. (And one could make a case for Stasiak as a regular character - also from RAW. The only Smackdown guy who's gone in that time period was Awesome, and he never did anything besides job on Velocity.)

"Jerry Lawler taken to local Las Vegas area hospital after his penile implant pump exploded at a local area brothel." (Hey! I could write this crap!!!)

Sorry -- I just couldn't stop myself.

Well, to be fair, Rhyno, Kanyon (at least his orig. injury), and Lita were all hurt before the roster split, so the "Raw Curse" doesn't really apply to them

I purdy sure Lita was hurt after the split.

You could also take into account that Smackdown has stolen some of the better ring talent Eddie, Benoit and Brock.

Lita went out right after the split. I'm not sure exactly when, but I know she was the only female drafted.

Hurt her neck doing a Hurricanrana on the set of Dark Angel. The show was shortly thereafter cancelled. Perhaps an angle could be done with Jessica Alba when Lita is better. Culminating in a nude butter wrestling match. Which ends...ah crud, ejaculated my pants without even finishing the joke.

Picking a nit:

Lita broke her neck 3 times on two vertabrae.

I'm just amazed she broke her neck before breaking anybody else's with her sloppiness.

Nonono, did you see Godfather on Raw recently? It's really PAPA SHANGO, and he's brought down a voodoo curse on Bischoff for, uh, something.
