Here's some more random RAW thoughts, 'cause it's beats the hell out of necrorevulsionadinfinitum:

Damn, that arena was *small* - and the ramp looked way shorter than usual. But even in a small building, the upper deck was almost empty. Good work, RAW team!

The ring ropes were looser than they've been in quite awhile, too - was this a reaction the rope breaking last night?

Co-sign with NetHackSlasher on some ugly-ass rednecks in the front row - especially the land monster in the green T-shirt. *shudder*. It looked like an OVW audience out there *double shudder*. And what was up with the "Willow The Wisp" sign? He's not even on this show (That *was* Matt, right?).

Did the WWE get a TDK sponsorship or something? Why not just have a blank tape without the case?

First match was sloppy... it looked like communication totally broke down at some point in the middle. Jeff sandbagged him on that gutwrench suplex, too. Still, a fun match with Jeff stealing the "ref-assisted somersault plancha" from Rey, and making the swanton onto the chair look *brutal* at the end. And note the big bruise on Nowinski's back (and welts on his chest) on the way up the ramp.

I like that angle, to some extent, but sorry, Snow's acting was *awful*. I know he's going for "intense", but he comes up with "wooden".

Footage from last night had Big Show running Bisch into OH NO NOT THE CLANGY... lunch trays? Seriously, what were those things?

The whole Regal/Storm, um, Un-Un-Americans? Can-UK Connection? team is kinda fun, and Storm busts out the ol' catchphrase. Bubba Ray, and the cut-off white camos... dude. Just... dude. Bubba sells the concussion, and that's kinda silly. Ya know, for anyone to care about Storm and Regal they've gotta, I dunno, WIN MATCHES, not just hit people with brass knucks after them. And it didn't help that they cut to OMG KANE IS WALKING AND HE HAS LUGGAGE in the middle.

The HBK promo was kinda cool, but he can't quite summon the HATE now that he's got the joy joy joy joy down in his heart (where?). The ending was funtastic, though, and the "ol' soft shoe" cracked me up. Problem is, it added to the PoocHHHie effect - lets finish the Kane thing, *then* bring Michaels back into the picture.

I helped my roommate bring in and set up his new TV at this point, so I missed a good chunk - a D-Lo match (dammit!) and the 6-man, and most of the HHH video (thank God). Actually, I came back just in time for "Looks like I really SCREWED her BRAINS out" *throws 'brains' at camera* - which was good for a chuckle. Reading about the rest of it though... oof.

The 3-on-1 for the Big Show was a little much - a handicap against the Island Boyeez would have been perfectly acceptable, but throwing Rico "Remember when I beat Ric Flair" in there was, uh, overkill. That superkick to a seated Show made me cringe - expecially considering how stiff these guys are. Note: This finish to this match got probably got more heat than anything on the card (that I saw) which goes ta show ya how over the Big Show can be if he's pushed the right way. Whether he *should* be, well...

The main event was an awful, heatless match, but I enjoyed it 'cause this is where JR and Lawler *really* stopped giving a shit and were just going off. The whole show turned into a semi-shoot parody of itself, and it entertained *me* at least. Classic lines:

JR: HHH and Flair use their power to manipulate people!
King: Yeah, like you don't! [OH TAG!]

JR: I wear a black hat for a living, what do I know about Yin-Yang?

JR: Folks, just turn the sound down and read the closed captioning. [way ahead a'ya - speaking of, the CC turned "5-Star Frogsplash" into Fire Power Blast, which sounds like a puro move just waiting to happen]

Then they spent forever riffing on "Flair hasn't hit a move off the top turnbuckle in 20 years" and Mae Young and the hand. Funny stuff

And the whole backstage skit at the end had me rolling.
Kane: Now I'm gonna SCREW YOU. But will you be ALIVE or DEAD!
Me: Pfffwhah? HAHAHAHA

King: Kane behind the wheel of a car, this is awful!

And then H kicks his way outta the trunk! And holds it closed and Ahahaha.

Sure, objectively this show sucked some serious ass, but I rather enjoyed the parts of it I saw... so much I just wrote a long post about it that few will read. Make of that what you will.

El Duderino.

not into the whole brevity thing, man

I fully agree with you about the JR/Lawler commentary during the final match. They went on this weird riff about anything and everything, and my roommate and I were laughing hysterically. We knew that JR couldn't turn a boring match into a five star match, so he turned to Lawler and the sparks flew.

Dude, you should put the banner into your sig, if it wouldn't be too big. I had no idea there were conventions and such for that movie.

Really needs to get one of those T-shirts.

Those were friends of friends of mine. I could flame you for randomly lambasting people you don't know to try to get some cheap heat, but instead I'll point out your ignorance. Jeff Hardy was Willow the Wisp. Watch some OMEGA before you spout off next time.

The Gaylord Entertainment Center isn't very small. It's used for the Nashville Predators and the offical site says it seats 20,000. I'm sure it's somewhere around 15,000-18,000 for wrestling. It was just empty last night.

This had me laughing because when I saw it last night, I asked myself "Why would Kane take his luggage out of the car if he's all ready dressed in his ring attire?"

JR made up a name for Flair's top rope slam bump: "That Never Works".

"Business has just picked up" says JR. Then right on cue, Molly enters the arena! Never was JR any better in introducing someone. --Raw 7/15

It worked on Harley Race for World Title #2. Oh wait, Gordon Solie and Bob Caudle were calling the match, real wrestling announcers.

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

There was a good line in there somewhere... This isn't an exact quote since I don't tape the shows.

JR: "There's no necrophelia in wrestling."

Lawler: "I just saw it!!!"

JR: "I once saw Mae Young give birth to a hand... Had a nightmare about that the other night."

I wouldn't lie to you that I had a nightmare last night, and let's say it had nothing to do with Mae Young. Oh, Gorilla Monsoon, if only you were still with us.
