"Randy's Gay! Randy's Gay! Randy's Gay!" Seriously, EVERYONE should chant that at house shows and TV tapings. Orton is completely useless in this feud since his entire contribution thus far has been "looking like he has a tummy ache while watching Foley's promo" and a tonsil-hampered post-wrestlemania promo. This guy is boring inside and out of the ring. Orton is starting to reach Maiavia-like proportions of pissing me off for the wrong reason.

Crazy-old-man Foley really really makes you wish this guy wasn't retired anymore. Forget the Rock, I'll be much more sad to see Foley leave the ring this time.

A count-out win? Feh. You could make the argument that another job to Shelton would really harm Triple H's drawing power, but if he's taking a vacation post-Backlash, then why not put over Benjamin TWICE and really make him look like a player. Still, Shelton got a victory in even with Evolution at ringside, so I guess that's something. Triple H remains off my shit-list for 3 weeks in a row.

If they're gonna keep pushing this "Benoit really really can't win this match twice" angle, and then have Benoit LOSE, it's gonna suck. If they keep playing it up only to have him triumph over Shawn Michaels with the Sharpshooter, then huzzah they've got a new star.

Any of the "in-the-know" smarks care to explain why they've moved all their Canadian babyfaces to America and why all the heels now reside in Canada?

This show was okay overall, but they did a superb job of building up Backlash which I'm really anxious to see now.

World Champion by this time next year

RRT (Random Raw Thoughts... hey, if Christian can have a catchphrase that's not getting over, so can I):

- Benoit is in the same position as Triple H was in? On top of Stephanie? (sorry, couldn't help it)

- I smell a special referee for Triple H's match

- Wait... I thought Rob Conway was the American who sympathized with the French...

- No new name for Johnny WCW Monday Nitro? Screw you, WWE, I'm turning to the National Championship game! (Not really, because I hate basketball)

- Hey, is that... REGAL! He's back! I think I marked out more for Regal than I did for Benoit winning the title.

- Side Note: Burger King has some commercials that BLOW MY MIND

- I was close. Special referee, guest ring announcer... tomato, potato.

- My Dad: "What's with Randy's bucket? Is he gonna bend Triple H over and milk him?"

- You know, Triple H's entrance water-spits have been really sub-par lately.

- Wow, a beatdown by Evolution. Because it's been more than a week since I saw one.

- Has Nidia always been from Puerto Rico?

- Hey, Gail Kim's back.

- It's the Rock! The Rock is on Raw! Oh... nevermind, that's Coach.

- Christian says you can't have two matches on one show. Since when?

- Hey, nice to see Kane breaking out Tazz's towel again.

- HBK's promo made me want to jump off my house.

- Hmm... it takes a surprisingly short amount of time to fix a busted ring rope.

- Another beatdown from Evolution. Okay, they're great with sneaky-like attacks. WE GET IT!

Jonathan Coachman is a dirty riar.

    Benjamin vs. HHH- Flair comes out & walks up to Lillian(be careful Lillian for anything spinning), he's the special ring announcer & Lawler wants him to announce every week (ah I hate you Lawler, YOU TOO Redsoxnation! Lillian cant' be replaced by ANYONE). Batista is one big timekeeper, Orton as trainer?. Lawler talks about Benjamin hometown (don't worry let him turn into a mid-card heel, we'll make up a Canadian city for him). OOh Batista rings the bell like a pro... Ouch Benjamin lands on his neck as Orton throws him into the barricade as fans question Orton sexuality. They battle to the outside, Benjamin throws HHH into the ring post and sneaks in for the countout win. See Flair is a bad announcer he's not announcing the winner.

But at least Flair knew who was in the match, which is a vast improvement over the regular ring announcer. And, over the regular commentators as well.

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

Ok, so maybe Michaels' stuff was awkward to some but the point is the little things he does, whether facials or one-liners, just display how naturally charismatic he is. He just blows the roof off of so many who try to display personality and still end up looking contrived and bland. Its hard to describe, but he just comes across as a guy who'd be great to have some laughs with.

I don't think it's just a question of can they get solid workrate over, I think it's a question is that they have to get solid workrate over. They've got to go back to the basics, take the fans back to grade school with this one.
