A couple of quick notes before I head off to bed...

Well, it looks like Raw is back to the same formula we've had for a while now.

Opening interview? Check.

Tag match from the random tag team generator? Check.

Austing ending the show with a couple stunners and drinking beers over the owner? Check.

Half of next week's show devoted to comedy sketched of Flair scrubbing toilets? Double check.

I guess we know which half of the creative team has been writing the shows for the past few years.

On a positive note, Booker T rules all.

I would hardly call RVD/Bubba vs. Brock/Eddy a random tag match. Bubba's got the issue with Brock and RVD with Eddy. Putting two seperate feuds together into one tag match has been used by promoters for a long long time as a way to build aticipation for the blowoff matches in the singles feuds.

Heck is for people that don't believe in Gosh.

I'll agree that the tag match wasn't truly random, but the
streak of good Raws is over at 1.

I should point out that last week also started with an promo segment, but it was meaningful (Benoit return) AND the payoff was significant (Benoit heel turn at end of show).

This week, the payoff is a golden shower. Weee. (At least SCSA doesn't have green "pee").

Sad thing is that after last week's show, the viewership may have been up in hopes they could follow up with another nice effort. WWE will look at the increased ratings and say, "Hey, people love pee jokes, and the rest of the same old, same old"

Sorry for the separate posting but the original thread was closed. According to an AMA on Reddit with PWI senior writer Dan Murphy, there were a few discrepancies between the alphabetical listing and the main list.
