So, Raw is tonight in Beantown and I'm leaving work in a few hours to head to the FleetCenter. Even though my live event total is approaching triple digits, I still feel like a giddy little kid on the day of the show. There's just something about "being there" at a live taping that is just... I dunno... cool, I guess. The music, the pyro, the crowds... It's all a pretty impressive spectacle and it definitely gives me more of an appreciation of what goes into the production of these shows. Plus, it's been a few years since I've been to a show in Boston, and they usually have great crowds.
At the very least, I can throw all the crap I've been watching over the last few weeks right out the window and just be a fan for the night. No thoughts of politics or workrate; just entertainment. (unless we get a funeral parlor redux) Plus, I get to see the one and only HBK at least one more time in person.
I'll post some in-person thoughts tomorrow. (or late tonight, if I'm sober enough)

Reds? You don't mean Communists, do you Sam?

Have a great time! I know exactly what you are talking about. The WWE makes too few trips to the Pacific Northwest (plus we don't have a thriving indy scene...) So whenever they come its a rare treat, I was at the RAW at Key Arena back in August and that show rocked and did a lot to keep me watching wrestling during a time when the storylines are making me want to quit.

And I can't even beging to tell you how excited I will be to sit in Safeco Field watching the biggest show of the year!

Oh flaming box of stuff, is there no problem you can't solve?

I doubt you'll get the old Gahden crowd feel tonite, because last time they went to Boston, they didn't come close to selling out the Fleet for SD (Hogan winning tag title, Taker/Angle Title Match). Have the bad feeling also that tonite will be the combination Get out the Vote/State of the WWF/E Vince McMahon-athon.

I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.

Yes,we need to be positive...or just pray that Brian Solomon becomes a booker for the WWE or something. Man that guy's smart..unlike many WWE columnists*cough*Kevin Kelly*cough*

Mattitude(ma't-e-toodeh'): Mattitude, is something that can not be taught or learned. Mattitude is something that burns within. In the ring, Mattitude is the intangible, the x-factor, that gives Matt Hardy Ver.1 an advantage over everyone else.

Shin Strife has Mattitude...

I agree. I hate people who are condemning the shows without giving them the chance. Tonight wasn't a bad effort by the boys and I think all is going to be well and good. They are already making fun of the necrophilia angle, so that's positive at least.

Being positive is great...
I just wish they would throw Kane out of the damn picture

Booker T- athlete
Jericho- cocky wrestler
HHH-cocky wrestler (although my neighbor noted if he gets any bigger his balls will start shrinking)
HBK- Charismatic Performer
Kane- Freak who cant keep up with any of these guys including the Has Been Kid

OK, I'm back from Raw and I had a blast. Looks like Scott Keith panned the show. Gee... surprise?

Whatever. I had a blast. More sober thoughts tomorrow.

EDIT: Shawn Michaels is the next World Champion

So, Simba, did Raven say what his "masterpiece" was?

And were you the only one in the crowd who showed any emotion or cheered at all (besides for HBK at the end)? Man, another dead crowd for Raw.

OK, some more clear-minded thoughts...
No, nothing new from Raven. He spoke about finishing his masterpiece, but that was about it.
The FleetCenter was DEAD. I'd say it was probably 50%capacity, which I'm guessing would be 7000 people. It's been years since I've been to a show with a crowd that small. Pretty sad, actually.
As it turns out, I met up with some friends at a local watering hole that were sitting in the skybox. A few stub swaps later and I was living large by the time they started taping Heat. It was absolutely fantastic and the alcohol was flowing, as you can imagine.
Nothing noticable off-camera, save the bonus 10-man match. The crowd was pretty surprised by this and most people were filing out by the time the intros ended. HBK definitely got the large pop, but surprisingly Maven's return went over big. Go figure...
All in all, a fantastic way to spend a Monday night. The performers seemed to be enjoying themselves for the first time in ages. The comedy stuff was decent and it had a little more of a relaxed SD! feel to it. Certainly one of the better efforts they've had in recent weeks.
I'm sure I'll add more later.
