WWE.com sez: Shawn Michaels will lead off RAW, presumably, with an interview. Plus, what else does John Cena have planned for Umaga, just six days before the Rumble? We’ll find out......now.

-We get a graphic, “In Memory of Scott ‘Bam Bam’ Bigelow, 1961-2007.” One of the best big men of his, or any, era.

-WWE open.

-Highlights from last week’s Rated RKO/Shawn Michaels battle.

-The music and seizure-inducing graphics of DX bring out Shawn Michaels. JR welcomes us to RAW in the Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana. He says the “Showstopper” is back. Where did he go? HBK says he’s going all-out in the Rumble match, so look out. Before Shawn can finish his thoughts, Edge comes out onto the stage. Edge declares his candidacy for Royal Rumble winner. Michaels is sick of talk and he meets Edge at the end of the ramp. They brawl overtop of the barricade as referees, security, and agents (I spy: Steve Keirn and Dean Malenko) try to break them up.

[break]

-When we return they’re still going at it backstage. The poor cameraman does a nice job getting into the middle of the action. Coach is there as well.

Jeff Hardy vs. Joey Mercury
This is a RAW vs. Smackdown challenge match. Nitro exposes the concrete floor on the outside early on. He tosses Nitro from the ringside area. Hardy comes back off a rest-hold, and (barely) hits a whisper-in-the-wind. A twist of fate ends it as Hardy picks up the pin as Mercury writhes in pain, holding his face.
Winner: Hardy by pinfall, 2:24
1/2*

-Coach is backstage talking to Mr. McMahon. Coach wants to throw HBK and Edge out, but Vince suggests Edge vs. Michaels in a street fight. He says he’s making a big announcement in the ring in a few minutes.

[break]

-Mr. McMahon comes out with Coach to read HIS letter to Donald Trump. He mocks the low ratings for “The Apprentice.” McMahon suggest HE appear on the show. He pulls an “Idiot says ‘what?’” at the fans, who he’s a bit peeved at. As McMahon ends his rant, John Cena’s music hits. Cena has some harsh words for Vinnie Mac. Cena mentions all of Vince’s previous obsessions, including beating DX and starting a football league. Coach makes the mistake of saying Trump has more money than Vince. McMahon says Cena needs a tune-up match for the Rumble. So tonight, he faces Coach.

[break]

Chris Masters vs. Super Crazy
We get an inset interview from Super Crazy. Not a good one, but at least they’re trying. The two have an ugly mid-ring collision. Masters has most of the offense thus far. Spinning heel kick sends Masters down. King steals a line from “Talladega Nights” as Crazy hits a dropkick off the top then a standing moonsault for two. He misses a charge then gets caught in the Masterlock. However, he tips Masters over, landing on Masters as his shoulders are down with the Masterlock on and gets the three.
Winner: Crazy by pinfall, 3:43
3/4*

-Coach sucks up to Vince, telling him how much money he has. Vince has a surprise for next week, but doesn’t seem to know what it is yet. Reality imitates art....

[break]

-Michaels is backstage, getting ready for his match.

-Maria is standing by with Kenny Dykstra. Dykstra says he’ll win, then calls out Maria for not believing in him.

-Edge is getting ready for his match, and a well-makeuped Randy Orton enters to talk to him. He’s not too happy with Edge. Orton doesn’t promise Edge that he’ll help in the match with HBK tonight.

-Next is Cena vs. Coach!

[break]

(3) John Cena vs. Coach
Coach says Vince is gone, so he’s making Cena face random superstars in a match before he faces Coach. Over the top rope rules.

(3) Seven-man Royal Rumble
Murdoch and Cade double-team (obviously) to start. They can’t get Cena over the top. Cena starts fighting back, which includes a low-blow to Murdoch. Trevor gets FU’d out of the ring. Five-knuckle shuffle for Cade. Just over two minutes in, The World’s Greatest Tag Team enters, as does Viscera. Three minutes in and Great Khali is summoned from the back. Khali though goes to work on the heels. Haas, Benjamin and Cade get tossed by Khali nearing four-minute mark. Out goes Viscera after a brief bout with Khali. Cena comes off the ropes with a shoulderblock on Khali. Khali thought throws Cena over the top.
Winner: Great Khali, 4:47
3/4*

Khali continues to go to work on Cena, including throwing him into the steps.

(4) Coach vs. John Cena
Coach goes for pin right away, but Cena kicks out. Umaga comes out to destroy Cena, and I’m not sure this was even a match.
Winner: Cena by DQ(?), 30 seconds
N/A

They set Cena on a table and Umaga’s splashes through from the top rope. Referees come out to attend to Cena.

[break]

-We get clips of what just happened, and back live, Cena is helped to the back.

(5) Candice Michelle & Mickie James vs. Melina & Victoria
We get CONTINUITY from two months ago, when Candice caught a foot to the nose from Victoria. Melina and Mickie start things off. A nice spanking for Melina. Mickie then hits a hurricanrana, and Victoria grabs her hair as she goes off the ropes. Tag is in to Vickie and there’s hair pulling a-plenty. Candice barely makes the save on a pin attempt. Vickie misses a splash in the corner and the hot tag to Candice is made. Her offense is short however, as Victoria takes over. Mickie is knocked off the apron, and the Widow’s Peak is broken up by Mickie. She splashes Melina on the outside while Candice tries a spinning heel kick from the top rope, but ends up just take out Victoria with her torso for the pin.
Winners: Mickie & Candice by pinfall, 3:09
½*

-HBK vs. Edge in a street fight is coming up

[break]

(6) Carlito vs. Kenny Dykstra
Carlito with some nice offense early on. Kenny is going with the bright pink tights and boots. Kenny takes over and gets a couple near-falls. Carlito tries to fight back, and lays some left hands into the temple of Dykstra. Springboard reverse elbow, then Carlito then tries a roll up, which is reversed, reversed again, and reversed for the final time by Kenny, with a handful of tights of course, for the pin.
Winner: Dykstra by pinfall, 3:24
*

-Highlights from last week’s Rated RKO/HBK action. The street fight is NEXT!

[break]

-Cryme Tyme try to sell Royal Rumble numbers to Super Crazy and Eugene. Crazy is happy about his number. Eugene gets his number and it’s #30. They convince him that 30 isn’t a good number, and give him number 1 instead. For a steeper price, of course. We find out that the numbers aren’t even really Rumble numbers. Ron Simmons looks at the famous painting of the screaming guy (Cryme Tyme were talking about it) and says “Damn.”

-Royal Rumble is previewed.

-Michaels is walking backstage, on his way to the ring. We go back to his brawl with Edge from earlier tonight.

[break]

(6) Edge vs. Shawn Michaels, Street Fight
You KNOW it’s a street fight because HBK is wearing his jeans. So is Edge for that matter. Michaels uses his belt early on, then goes under the ring to retrieve some chairs. A trash can is used as well. Edge nails HBK with a trash can lid to the head as WE head to break.

[break]

Upon return, Michaels is busted open. It appears to have happened when Edge sent HBK face-first into the steps. Edge uses a chain to the bread basket of HBK. He brings a ladder down, off the middle rope, right into Michaels. He’s holding his left arm in pain. I’m guessing it’s not a heart attack. Michaels fights out of a powerbomb. The two trade right hands in the middle of the ring. Edge is now wearing a crimson mask as well. Edge tries a superplex, but he gets sent ribs first onto the ladder. Michaels readies for the superkick as someone takes the stairs out of the ring. Michaels gets folded up by Michaels instead. Landed right on the back of his head. Michaels, steel chair to the head of Edge. Orton comes out as Michaels tries another chair shot, and RKO’s HBK. Edge crawls over and makes the pin.
Winner: Edge by pinfall, 14:04
*** Pretty good, brutal match

Flair comes out to attack and aid HBK, but Dykstra gets rid of him. Carlito now comes in to take on Kenny. Sweet chin music for Carlito, Kenny and Orton. He’s the last one standing now as we get the final hype for the Rumble.

The final “W”ord: 5.5: Aside from the final match, the wrestling was pretty much non-existant. Cena was destroyed nicely heading into the PPV. The Coach/Cena match stuff was kind of strange, and another way to kind of ruin the tag division. And Vince’s stuff was kept to a minimum.

HBK's promo was a thing of beauty. I didn't think before tonight he'd win the Rumble, but now I'm almost sure of it. Edge coming out sans-Orton was interesting.

Mercury and Hardy was what it was, I was looking forward to the tag match at the Rumble, and still am.

Yay, Vince and Trump, the feud no one wanted to see (besides Vince and Trump).

Super Crazy spent the first half of that match just looking like he got killed. Nice way to use the Masterlock against Masters.

The ease in which Khali disposed of Viscera was pretty impressive, as was him just destroying everyone in the ring. Sure he can't wrestle worth shit, but as big as he is, and can show some sense of power, who needs to be able to wrestle? I think it would make a lot of sense for Estrada to obtain the services of Khali as well as Umaga, that's a pretty "devastating" combo as far as storylines go.

Holy Hot Pink Kenny....that shit was gay. Carlito just kept looking at him in disbelief that his gear was really that pink.

Royal Rumble Breakdown...
Raw-13: Shelton, Flair, HBK, Edge, Orton, Khali, Carlito, Masters, Crazy, Kenny, Jeff, Nitro, Vis

SD!-10: Benoit, MVP, Kane, Taker, Matt, Miz, Finlay, Chavo, Helms

ECW-7: RVD, Sabu, Dreamer, Punk, Sandman, Holly, Thorn

So not a big discrepancy in the Rumble division, since you know it wouldn't be split completely evenly.

HBK and Edge holy shit, this is easily a match they could use at a PPV, and they gave it away for free. Sure they just did the tag version, but if one of these 2 win the Rumble (which I think they might), the other needs to challenge right away, could be a nice post-Mania feud to begin the post-Mania run.

All in all, I thought a really strong Raw going into the Rumble. I said a few weeks ago it didn't take me much to buy the Rumble, but this is looking like an impressive card, and a Rumble match that could end up being very unpredictable.

I dunno what I can say about the show except that I'd be surprised if HBK didn't win the Rumble. Which, I really hope he doesn't.

Aside from that, I thought the camera shot/scene of Orton rising above and behind Michaels was VERY well done and probably one of the best shots I've seen on WWE in a very long time, if not all time.

Of course, the best shot in my view was Demolition coming to the ring at WM 6. !!!

I can't get behind another Shawn Michaels run. I just can't. I don't have it in me anymore and I don't think he does either. Maybe if he went away and tried it I would be more open to it, but he just got done playing Stevie Richards to Helmsley's Raven.

If they moved this show to Friday and Smackdown to Monday the world would be a better place.

Shawn Michaels was all kinds of awesome tonight and the only positive of H's unfortunate injury is that it's going to allow Shawn Michaels to have another main event run.

If you watch the Rowdy Roddy Piper DVD you'll find out that the sleeper hold, just like the Masterlock, is offensive maneuver. The referee incorrectly counted the shoulders of Masters just like the ref at Wrestlemania eight incorrectly counted three for Bret Hart to win the intercontinental championship. So, Rowdy Piper still lays claim to that title...jokingly.

Anyways...Hardy/Mercury was there. That was a fsst match.

Cryme Tyme selling stuff that's fake...great stuff. Fraud as comedy...genius.

YES FANTASY POINTS FOR KENNY!

I love WWE crowd shots of shock


The womens match was ok until that blasted finsh...jeez Candice.

The street fight lived up to a good match. Gawd with out totally killing each other, yet inflicting punishment that could if done intentionally, in some form or fashion. Love Orton coming out of no where...I sort of wanted to see him get revenge because I have no idea why but I'm total mark for the conchairto. I guess become the new devastating move to me. Used to be tables but that went out the door. I mean I barely bought Cena going down to the table.

I think this RAW did one thing. It planted the seeds of a Khali face turn at WM 23. Did you see the pop Khali got after he eliminated all those heels? It was big. I can see it now. Vince hires him for his Trump vs McMahon match/angle/whatever and he loses. And then Vince slaps him and berates him only to have Khali kick his ass. He'd be like Kane only, not as cool. And don't tell me that idea wouldn't work. It worked for Trish, it can work for Khali.

But, overall, I think it was a good RAW. The main event was brutal and great.

He has a pretty good track record with great matches at the last four Wrestlemanias (or three and carrying as good a match as you can have with Vince McMahon). I'm betting that Cena/Michaels would be slightly above-average on a random day, but at Mania it'll be pretty fantastic.

What would've happened if John Cena had managed to be the last man standing in the ring? Coach said his match with Cena wouldn't start till Cena was thrown from the ring, so if Cena had survived, would he not get the match with Coach he wanted? Would he get the match regardless, as soon as the battle royal was over?

Okay, let's cut them a break and assume the finish doesn't matter, and Cena's getting the match with Coach regardless. Cena still knows he's not getting that match till he's eliminated. If he had nothing to gain from winning the match, and everything to gain from losing the match, why didn't he just eliminate himself as soon as the match started?

Okay, let's cut them another break and assume Cena's in there fighting because that's kind of guy he is, not backing down from any challenge. And also they're all Heat guys he knows are losing, because they show up for every bit like this and never ever win. If I'm Lance Cade or Trevor Murdoch, and I know my pal Coach wants Cena beaten to a pulp, why ever try throw Cena out, unless he's comatose? They don't get anything for winning, except maybe a notation on the record book, and their primary goal is to help out Coach - but then they were trying to throw Cena out after their legdrop/atomic drop combo, which probably hurt, but if they actually got him out, all the other stuff with Viscera and Khali would've never happened. The overall plan worked, but they were working against it for a time, for completely inexplicable reasons.

Okay, let's cut them a third break. The Heat Jobbers were told they'd get a big prize for eliminating Cena when Coach recruited them during that commercial break, and maybe there was some misunderstanding over what he meant by eliminating, and I'm taking this far too seriously for a plot involving minor characters, because they're not writing it that seriously. I need to step back, and look at the big picture - all the Heat guys were there to be crash dummies for Great Khali to beat up-

WAIT! Why was Great Khali (your new big heel) put in a position where he was making the save John Cena (your hero)? Because that's exactly what he did, Cena was getting killed, Khali walked in, Khali beat up all the guys that were beating up Cena, and the fans loved it because he was saving their dude. All that was missing was a handshake. I understand that you want to make Khali look like a force of nature, but you also want him to be a feared force of nature, not a man coming to a (confused) rescue. Cena was a jerk to attack him after all Khali did for him - sure, they fought just a couple weeks ago, but people have turned just as randomly in the past.

Why was everyone acting like an idiot for this segment?

I mean, I think the end result was pretty good in terms of setting up Sunday's match - that ten count was one of a few little things that made it seem like people hand on their thinking caps tonight, but the setup must've been written by a different person (or rewritten enough times that the logic disappeared.)

The main event stuff and the show opening stuff was really good.

I agree with both. I'd be more than happy to watch Cena-Michaels at WM, as long as I don't have to watch RAW for the next two and a half months. I'm completely apathetic towards Michaels' character right now, and I can't imagine how they could build the match up to make me care. Kind of scares me to think of how they'd build up a Cena v D v X match. Double elimination at the end of the Rumble followed by two months of two best friends maybe not trusting each other?

I don't think Michaels was going to be anywhere near the title match had Hunter survived NYR.

Cena's brief Vince impression put HHH's to shame. The HBK/Edge stuff was gold. Crazy/Masters was also fun. I'm actually looking forward to the Rumble, which is a nice change.



To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends.

I was afraid that Haas/Benjamin were going to be chumped out by Cena. They weren't, but they still got owned pretty good. I'd call that a half victory.

The Cena battle royale gave us THE GREATEST COMMENTARY MOMENT EVER so I can ignore the logic flaws... except for Khali skipping his finisher. Why would he?

The Ron Simmons bit is still funny because it's the one thing on the show they've been consistently original with.

Glad someone brought that up. I heard JR say that and asked....surely I didn't just hear that, and kinda moved on. Now, yeah, I heard it, and heard it loud and clear

Is it me, or did Super Crazy beat Masters 2 or 3 straight times a few months ago?

This show marked the first time in awhile that Orton actually interested me. Maybe he wins the Rumble and at Wrestlemania its....Orton against Umaga!

Watching Raw on USA via Time Warner Cable (in NC), for the third week in a row, there were problems of the picture/signal freezing for anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Last week, it was during the contract signing, when the picture froze with AAE signing Umaga's name....and the action picks up with Umaga laying on the floor, disposed of. This week, it froze with Carlito about to start beating on Kenny after the street fight, and picked up after the show ended. Did anyone else experience this?

I'm starting to wish Umaga was winning this Sunday. A David versus Goliath, HBK versus Samoan Bulldozer match at 'Mania would be a thing of beauty.

While THIS is the match I would prefer to see because I think Umaga plays up to his compeition and Shawn can bumb and carry witht he best of them, it would undoubtedly lead to Cena in the dark. My only guess is that they make that match a 3 way (Cena, Michaels and Umaga). Of course, to do this you would have to turn Edge face and have him go against heel Orton. If that was the case, then Wrestlemania would be the perfect place to turn Cena heel and have him beat on HBK unmercifully after the match and leave HBK left for dead.

So, the old Shawn Michaels is back? Then, that means that while he lost many battles, Vince McMahon won the war, as the purpose of the Michaels/McMahon feud initially was to bring back the old Shawn Michaels.
Why did I have Marcus Alexander Bagwell reaction flashbacks from Cleveland in '01 when the fans popped for Khali?
Good street fight. Would have been nice if they had a stipulation where the loser drew #1 in the Rumble or the winner got a number in the 20's, but, that would have prevented an idiotic Cryme Tyme skit, and you can't have that not appear. And, not that he matters, but do they even know whether Eugene is a heel or a face anymore?

Impressive spot by Cena and Umaga, I must admit.

That was a brutal street fight. Almost as good as the one they had almost 2 years ago at Rumble '05.

I am not sure HBK is in the main event for WM 23 just yet. They could still go the route of a 3 way with rated Cena/RKO after last night's finish. Whatever happens, let's hope it is not a 4 way title match, those usually suck.

    Why Edge as the face? Considering recent events, I'd take Orton would play the face, seeing as he was the one left for dead by Edge and got a mild pop for throwing Edge out of the ring.
