TONIGHT: Current MLB free-agent Johnny Damon and member of the 2009 World Series Champion New York Yankees is the guest host tonight (along with a few “Secret Santas,” whatever they are), one week after the Slammy disaster. There will be no more Chris Jericho on Raw, but will the new tag champs accept the challenge of Tyson Kidd and D.H. Smith? Speaking of DX, is this the week we’ll finally get “Little People’s Court”? Will Sheamus be more of a centerpiece as champion than he was last week? And who will John Cena destroy this week?


-WWE Open. Ted DiBiase’s “Everybody’s got a price” has replaced Hogan’s “Hulkamania is runnin’ wild,” and Jeff Hardy jumping off a ladder has replaced Mick Foley falling of the Cell.

-Raw Open.

-From Tampa, Florida, Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole opened the show by plugging Hornswoggle taking DX to court (with the People’s Court music).

-Also, John Cena faces Jack Swagger in singles competition. I guess that answers one of my questions.

-Justin Roberts introduced guest host Johnny Damon, mostly to boos (well, they ARE in Rays territory). He came out to “Put me in coach.” He wished everybody a Merry Christmas, but they kept booing him. He reminded fans that he was a World Series Champ in Boston and New York. He didn’t really exude a ton of personality. He said the Secret Santas will grant one WWE superstar their wish. Then tiger sounds came over the house mic and through the crowd, a blond woman with a golf club chased someone dressed as a tiger around and through the ring. WWE’s desperate attempt to be relevant, but it had nothing to do with anything and was completely pointless. Damon wanted to get Raw started with the Divas.

(1) Melina & Gail Kim & Kelly Kelly vs. Jillian & Alicia Fox & Maryse
The ladies were dressed in their sexy Santa outfits. Kelly was the only one not wearing red (she was in pink). Kim landed a shoulder to Jillian’s gut, then Gail came off the top with a cross-body for two. Kim got on Jillian’s shoulders, but Hall took her down with an electric chair for two. Tag to Maryse and the heels whipped Kim hard into the buckle. Back-breaker by Maryse for two. Kelly tagged in and landed a few clotheslines, then a one-legged dropkick. Hurricanrana, then her patented legdrop for two. It was broken up by the heels, and as the ref tried to restore order, Maryse picked Kelly up for a slam- but Melina dropkicked Kelly, who fell on top of Maryse for the pin.

Winners: Kim, Kelly and Melina, at 2:07. We’re not off to a great start.

-They plugged Johnny Damon making one superstar’s wish come true. I hope they grant Kofi’s wish to go back to being seen as important.

-Little People’s Court begins next.

[Commercial Break]

-Lawler and Cole talked on camera about Little People’s Court. To the video package, where Shawn had his grandpa reading glasses on earlier in the day, reading a piece of paper. Triple H came up and read it as well- they were both mic’d and the paper told them to go to the ring. Michaels told Trips to go under the ring. HBK went under himself, and Triple H followed, reluctantly. So did the cameraman. You couldn’t see anything except hear their voices, which echoed. But Michaels pulled out his DX glowstick, which he got at the merchandise stand. The Game thought he saw a lightswitch- he turned it on, and they were backstage in a hallway, which they pointed out, “who knew this was under the ring?” They came upon a door that said “The Little People’s Court.” They walked in and in the next shot, they were walking through a curtain to where several little people sat, acting as a jury. There was a judge and bailiff and everything. Triple H kept joking that the bailiff looked like Shawn, with his thinning hair and ponytail. He whacked the men on their legs to get them to sit in a tiny chair. Then Hornswoggle walked in. He ranted unintelligibly at the witness chair, and Shawn translated that DX has inflicted him emotional distress and he has video evidence. On a TV, they played all the hijinks the three have been involved in in the past. Triple H and Shawn Michaels had worried looks on their face as the voice-over man asked how this would be resolved and to stay tune to Raw for more later in the night. My one wish for Santa to grant me? That I never have to hear of Little People’s Court again.

(2) Randy Orton & Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase vs. Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne & Mark Henry
This can’t be a good sign for MVP, Henry’s partner. Orton tagged Rhodes in before he could come in contact with the World’s Strongest Man. A distraction by DiBiase allowed Rhodes to take brief advantage. Press slam by Henry. Kingston tagged in and kicked away at Cody. He was quite aggressive as the crowd chanted his name. Rhodes got his knees up in the corner and tagged Orton. Before he could do any damage, and as he stood over Kingston, they went to break about two minutes in.

[Commercial Break]

Back live, Kingston was in a rear-chinlock. Kingston back-dropped Rhodes, which led to Bourne tagging in. He used his high-speed offense to get the crowd into it and get the faces back on the advantage. He hit his SSP on Rhodes, but DiBiase broke up the pin. Orton worked over Bourne on the outside as Kingston and DiBiase got involved. Orton went with the slingshot, sending Bourne throat-first into the bottom rope. Cover got two. DiBiase went for a chin-lock, putting more pressure on by lifting his legs up and pounding them on the mat, as the old-school heels used to do. DiBiase almost took Bourne’s head off with a clothesline. Bourne pushed DiBiase into the buckle and kicked him in the face in a nice move. Both men were down. Kingston and Orton both tagged in and Kofi met him with some chops. Springboard dropkick by Kofi. Boom Drop, but the pin was broken up by Rhodes. Trouble in Paradise by Kingston caught DiBiase and he picked up the win.

Winners: Bourne, Kingston and Henry, at 10:24. Really fun match, thanks in part to a hot crowd.

-Backstage, the Bellas, Santa and Eve were sucking up to Johnny Damon. Eve got some eggnog when Carlito walked up to her. He pointed out that they were standing under the mistletoe. He puckered up, but Chris Masters moved Eve out of the way. Carlito grabbed his shoulders thinking it was Eve. He was disgusted when he saw that it was Masters. They started shoving when Santa Slaughter broke them up. Damon then made a Carlito vs. Masters match. Damon thanked Slaughter for handling things when Slaughter pointed up…..to the mistletoe, which they were both standing under. Damon said, “don’t even think about it…and that’s an order.” He walked away and Slaughter replied, “hey, come on Johnny, don’t ask don’t tell!” That was kinda funny, and I am loathe to admit that.

-More Little People’s Court is still to come.

[Commercial Break]

-A voice-over, sounding like Verne Troyer, recapped the previous events of Little People’s Court. Triple H spoke for himself, saying it was all a little misunderstanding. He kept accidentally calling them names like midget and dwarf. Michaels said he wanted to make his speech short….then asked for a tiny moment of their time….and decided he wasn’t doing any better. Exhibit B against DX was Triple H giving the Pedigree to Horny. Apparently, the found him guilty. Michaels said they’re not going to let Hornswoggle into DX. HBK said Hornswoggle would have to prove himself. His over-acting was on the level of when he was feuding with Hogan. In the end, the little people started throwing a bunch of stuff at DX, chasing them out of the room. DX had to try to use the backstage door to hold them into the room. Finally, they ran away and came back from under the ring. After gathering themselves, one of them tried to pull Shawn back under the ring as Triple H tugged on him to try to save him. DX won out and they ran away from ringside. That was worse than the first segment they showed.

-John Cena was walking backstage…he faces Jack Swagger next.

[Commercial Break]

(3) John Cena vs. Jack Swagger
Ironically, Cena is facing someone else who proclaimed to go undefeated at one point this year. Swagger applied some shoulders to the gut of Cena in the corner. Cena came back with a bulldog, then back-dropped Swagger out of the ring. They went to break at this point.

[Commercial Break]

Back with Swagger controlling Cena in the ring. Swagger caught Cena in the air and planted him with a slam, then did some push-ups. Swagger missed a corner charge and Cena fired back with rights. Side slam by Swagger for two. More attempts at wearing down Cena. Crowd started to get into it as Cena made his way to his feet. Belly-to-belly suplex by Cena for a two-count. Swagger again caught Cena, this time getting his feet up on a charge. Intense Vader bomb from Swagger for a two-count. Gutwrench powerbomb was countered by Cena. Both men got to their feet and Cena hit a shoulder tackle. Five-Knuckle Shuffle, but Swagger rolled through an Attitude Adjustment and hit the Oklahoma Stampede for two. Right hand from Swagger in the corner, then he put Cena on the top rope. He looked to be going for a superplex, but Cena powered out. Cena knocked him to the mat, much like Sheamus did with him at TLC (but no one brought that point up). Cena missed a legdrop off the top and Swagger missed another Vader Bomb attempt. Cena locked in the STF for the win.

Winner: Cena, at 12:32. I couldn’t believe they made Swagger look this credible. But it was a very good match, mixing Swagger’s amateur style with Cena’s style.

-Damon was talking to Santa backstage. This time, it was evident that it was Santa Dusty. He told Damon to tell George Steinbrenner that The Dream was alive and well. MVP walked in and said he has a dream of his own. He said he wanted to prove he has what it takes to be World Champ. He wanted the opportunity to earn a title shot- he wanted to go one-on-one with Sheamus tonight. MVP pulled the beard off Santa and Dusty asked if the polka dots on his Santa suit gave it away. Damon thought MVP’s match was a “home-run idea.” Ugh. Dusty found himself under the mistletoe, but no one around to kiss.

[Commercial Break]

(4) Carlito vs. Chris Masters
Eve accompanied Masters to the ring. Masters tried to hook the Masterlock on almost immediately, but Carlito made the ropes. Carlito put a sleeper on Masters with The Masterpiece on his knees. Masters got to his feet and he sent Carlito back-first into the buckle. Powerslam by Masters as he tried to get the crowd into it. He yelled out “Masterlock!!” and somehow, Carlito was able to counter it. Carltio came off the ropes and landed right in a Masterlock. No one gets out of that.

Winner: Masters, at 1:48.

Eve had a mistletoe and put it above her and Masters and they got a kiss. Masters flexed his pecs with pleasure. Yikes.

-A “Tribute to the Troops” video package aired.

-Still to come tonight, Sheamus squares off against MVP.

[Commercial Break]

-The Bellas had reached rock bottom, as they were flirting with the tiger from the first segment backstage. The Miz was talking to a new Santa and Miz said they had some unfinished business, bringing up something Santa didn’t get him when he was seven. Miz demanded a ton of things, including a house on Malibu and two hotter girlfriends. He said he’s The Miz and he’s….about to be taxed, said Santa I.R.S. And oh God, Tiger’s wife is back, and she chased the Tiger off again. I.R.S talked taxes with Miz some more. Damon came in and said he paid his taxes. I.R.S said baseball players were the biggest tax cheats of all. And oh dear, Mae Young came up and found Damon under the mistletoe. They made out and Damon got wrestled to the floor by Mae. Damon ran away and Mae wished everyone a Merry Christmas.

-Sheamus came out for his match with MVP. It’s next.

[Commercial Break]

-Next week’s guest host: Timbaland.

(5) Sheamus vs. MVP
As bad as Raw has been tonight, I’m digging the matches and giving the younger guys some time. Hopefully, that continues here. Sheamus attacked MVP at the outset. Back-breaker on MVP, but Sheamus missed a splash in the corner. MVP fought back for a moment and hit a face-buster. He was about to go Ballin,’ but Sheamus got up and hit the pump kick on MVP. Crucifix slam ended things for MVP.

Winner: Sheamus, at 2:23. On one hand, I would’ve liked MVP to get more offense and to see this match get extended another five minutes, but on the other hand, WWE needs to continue to build Sheamus as strongly as they can, especially against guys like MVP.

After the match, John Cena ran down to the ring and got a mic. Cena said Sheamus owes him a rematch, and he wants it now. Cena de-shirted and Sheamus looked at first like he’d give it a go, then he left the ring. He got back on the apron and half-way through the ropes, but again backed away to major heat from the crowd.

[Commercial Break]

-Damon was complaining to a make-up artist about the kiss when Vince McMahon walked in. He talked about what a good job Damon had been doing on Raw. McMahon asked Damon what he wanted to do about Cena’s challenge. Damon made the match for next week. As Vince was walking away, Damon asked if there’s any truth to Bret Hart hosting Raw. McMahon said that was a bit of a “bah humbug” question, and didn’t really answer.

(6) The Miz vs. Santino-Claus
Santino brought his sack full of gifts to the ring and gave them out to fans. Marella sang “Santino Claus is coming to town.” Santino said he doesn’t feel like being very nice to the Miz after what he saw on his list. Santino wrestled in full Claus outfit. Miz went right after Santino, taking him down and giving him a good beating. Neck-breaker by Miz, whose cockiness meter was at a full 10.0. He pounded on Santa in the corner, but missed the corner clothesline. Santino with a hip-toss, and then he went to the middle rope. He missed the headbutt and Miz capitalized with the Skull-Crushing Finale to cap the match.

Winner: Miz, at 2:15. Just a way to get more heel heat on Miz.

Post-match, Miz stomped on the gifts inside the sack Santino brought to the ring.

-Cole and Lawler talked about Little People’s Court, then we saw clips (I refuse to use the word “highlights”) that summed up the escapade. They really needed to spend three minutes re-showing that crap?

-Big Show was walking backstage…when Josh Mathews interrupted. Show said he was sick of the impostor Santas running around the place tonight. He said he was going to the ring to get his wish from the REAL Santa, or else.


[Commercial Break]

-Next week, Sheamus puts his WWE Title on the line against John Cena.

-They showed the trailer to The Marine 2 with Ted DiBiase.

-The Big Show came out for the main event segment. Show said that Johnny Damon promised a wish would be granted by The Secret Santas, and he deserves to have his wish granted. He demanded the real Santa come down to give him what he wants now. The Bella Elves came out with Santa. Santa got the mic and wished everyone a Merry Christmas. When he started talking, my roommate suggested it was Big Dick Johnson, based on his speech last week and hearing what he sounds like tonight. Show asked for his best friend and tag partner, Chris Jericho, to come back to Raw. Santa said Jericho has been a bad boy. Oh, now it sounds like Jericho! The crowd didn’t want Jericho on Raw. He told the fans not to be Scrooges. Santa then said next week, Jericho will be back on Raw. Big Show said Santa was the best. But Hornswoggle’s music hit and he came out in DX gear from under the ring. Horny pulled the beard off Santa to expose Jericho. Jericho and Show yelled for Hornswoggle to come back into the ring. Instead, all the little people, clad in DX gear, entered the ring. Jericho should kick all their asses- that’s a real heel. Jericho went after them, but the little guys kept fighting back. Show kept throwing them down and one was stuck to Jericho’s leg. Show picked him up and gave him a sidewalk slam. It looked like he gave one to a Teddy Bear or something. Damon didn’t do a very good job on the background checks of these Santas. Show picked up the little person by the foot and hung him over the top rope, allowing the refs and medics to take him.

Jericho chased down Hornswoggle and he and Show cornered the guy. Fans chanted for DX, but Hornswoggle was ready to go it alone and even began tuning up the band. He gave Jericho sweet shin music, and as Show had Horny up for a chokeslam, DX ran out. The two teams started going at it, with Jericho being thrown out of the ring. Double suplex on Show, who rolled to the outside. DX and Hornswoggle celebrated in the ring. Triple H got the mic and suggested that they squash him. Shawn said it’s Christmas but HHH said he still wants to squash him. Michaels admitted that Horny is starting to grow on him. Triple H admitted he doesn’t hate him as much as he used to. HBK said what Hornswoggle just did was pretty big. He asked Hunter, “can we keep him?” He promised to take him out for walks, feed him and clean his cage. Trips said there’s a height requirement in DX. They finally reached a compromise- Hornswoggle drop the court thing and Hornswoggle becomes the DX mascot. He seemed excited at that prospect. Michaels said, “if you’re not down with that, we’ve got two words for ya” and Horny yelled, “suck it!” Then they did the pose with the fireworks. Fake snow began to fall, but it looked like it was just an effect on the screen. DX continued to celebrate as they faded out.

Thanks for the lump of coal, Vinnie Mac. Worst RAW of the year?

The Little People's Court...did they actually tape that weeks ago and hang onto it til now? Wrestlecrap of the highest order...and now he is their MASCOT? A sad state of affairs to wind down the year on RAW...

According to Kevin Eck of the Baltimore Sun, they filmed the little people court session in a court house in Baltimore. But yet, if that was the case, why put up all those curtains and such? They must be doing this for the kids because it was an awful segment to the adults to swallow.

Swagger looked good against Cena but it looks like Swagger is heading to ECW.

Damon was a horrible host. It's also questionable if Tampa is a really a Rays town or a Yankees town (if you ever seen Rays vs Yankees games in Tampa, you would understand)

Loved what Big Show did to that midget except I wish he would have splashed him also. PUtting him up by the leg and handing him over the ropes to the EMT's was a really funny touch though. Ah, memories of King Kong Bundy.

And can Sheamus do what DX did against Jerishow and just forfiet the rematch with Cena and be over it??

It was bad enough to show the Little People's Court, but then at MAIN EVENT time, replay part of it? Good lord.

Swagger looked REALLY good out there. Maybe he'll get another run with a belt. The US belt.

Are they trying to drive people away to watch TNA on the 4th at this point!? I remember being in high school and making stupid home movies with friends for class projects or just for fun. Sure, they were hilarious to us when we made and watched them but they would just be stupid to an outsider watching. That is what RAW has become, a bunch of stupid high school level home video skits that only those involved in the making find funny.

I think the guest host thing has run it's course. It's wasting valuable airtime that could be used to push wrestlers. I have no problem with it if they made it a once a month thing, or when they have a big name for it, but it's hurting the product as it is.

On the plus side there were a couple nice matches. I really hope they take a chance at the Rumble and let one of the young guys on the rise(Kofi, Morrison etc.) get the win and the shot at Mania.

What's sad about this is it's not even one of the 20 worst RAWs of the year. It was horrible, but every week people say "WORST RAW EVER!!!" and forget that the whole year on RAW has sucked with a few exceptions. This show did suck, though, but Cena/Swagger managed to keep it above other stinkers.. like last week's episode.

How does this show keep getting worse than the previous show?

Stupid

1. Yeah the DX stuff was stupid. The whole Little People's Court under the ring thing, eh. At least it's not the first time some weirdness has happened with Horny. The bad part is that that whole segment makes the Horny running through the painted black hole in the wall (when Carlito was chasing him years ago) make sense. Still lame.

2. Tiger costume guy - although he did get the Bella Twins....The writers should have known to give him the WWE version of Jessica Simpson-Spears & Kelly Kelly - He likes blonde's! Not that I would've enjoyed anymore...Just saying.

Segments I liked

1. Virtually every Santa scene... The one polka dot on Dusty Claus was great. Jericho was awesome. I'm glad that they are bringing back the old Jericho while still using the new Jericho.... Jericho is one of the few that can pull of a serious guy and a comedic guy and still be relevant. The only person that really comes to mind is (WWE) Kurt Angle.

2. Cena and Swagger was great too. Sounds like they might be going with the Cena loosing his balance Vs. the Sheamus throwing him through the table thing... Small blip in the announcing makes me think that.

3. Mae Young - hey, it's been some time...

Now let me recap. [the DX stuff was stupid. The Little People's Court, eh. The bad part is that that whole segment makes the Horny running through the painted black hole in the wall. lame.]




-- on a side note, I'm going to the San Diego Raw in March! I possibly might see The Rock and Bret Hart live! Or not at all.

Jack Swagger showed why he was just as deserving of The Sheamus Push. His match with Cena was awesome and I actually wondered if he might pull it off. Now can Swagger come back to TV? He had a nice rivalry going with The Miz, so why not throw him in for a three-way dance with some midcard face for the U.S. Title?

Sheamus pretty much squashed MVP, which is the kind of buildup they should have given him BEFORE the PPV. Better late than never, I guess.

Considering how long it usually takes WWE to jump on the pop culture bandwagon, the Tiger thing is positively fresh.

If that final segment leads to JeriShow massacring Hornswoggle to get their title shot, I can live with it.

Dear God they'd better not flip-flop that belt back to Cena next week.

Given that Mae nearly fell over here, it's really time that they quit using her for anything other than waving at the crowd. But this was still kind of awesome because Damon had a huge grin the whole time he was being molested by Mae.

Jericho as Santa was great. I was hating the show with a passion at this point, and I was convinced Santa was going to be Big Dick Johnson because that was just what we needed at that point.

At this point, I got a text reading "that just set human/midget relations back 100 years"

"Worst Raw of the year" doesn't begin to cover it. This was the worst episode of anything since the invention of episodes. I know TNA doesn't have a hope in hell, but shows like last night's Raw really make me hope for a Christmas miracle. Sadly, it doesn't matter how much WWE sucks a cock between now and the 4th - they can bring out Bret and all is forgotten. I look forward to our Wrestlemania main event of the Hart Dynasty and Bret vs. DX and Hornswoggle. Maybe Hornswoggle can dress up like the midget Bret from 12 years ago.

Katie Vick is still the worst Raw ever followed by most of 2003 where it was Evolution all the time. This was probably one of the worst Raws of the year due to the midget crap. This Raw reminds me of a pro team that squeaks by a terrible team when they have a big game in a week or two. It could be WWE is trying to end all the crap in the next two weeks and then on Jan 4th they are going to go all out. All the fun DX shit will end as soon as Bret shows up or at least it should.

The pleasantly surprising Swagger-Cena match, and the Jerishow shenanigans at the end was the only thing that saved this show from All Time Craptacular status. Instead, it's just one of the worse Raws of the year. I was embarrassed to be a wrestling fan when my wife saw me watching that Tiger Woods bit. Ugh!

You would think that of anyone in the company, DX has the power to say "I ain't doing this shit". Surely they don't think these skits are really funny? Maybe one of their wives wrote it and told them it was funny, and to shut up and just do it.

That's what really put last night's show over the edge for me. Not the Tiger bit specifically, but... when Mae Young gave birth to a hand, it seemed like every person I knew picked that exact moment to channel surf past TSN. Knowing I am a wrestling fan, they all asked me what the hell that was about. I got a lot of "...and you LIKE this?" And last night's show had more moments like that than any other that I can think of:
- the first skit with the Tiger
- the first skit with the midgets
- the second skit with the Tiger
- the second skit with the midgets
- Mae Young molesting Johnny Damon
- the reruns of the skits with the midgets
- most of the Santa stuff too, come to think of it

In general, Mae Young (who is secretly kind of great), Hornswoggle (who is not), and people who don't speak English (it varies) make the list every time they show up. Mae is always trying to hump someone and in WWE-land, if you're a midget or can't speak English, you must be mildly retarded.

They get a bunch of TV time, get to pimp their merchandise, don't have to take any bumps, and get to make smarky/shooty comments. Pretty sure they're OK with that.

Now, that's not to say it's good TV, seeing as I FF'd through all of that stuff. But I have to think they see it as a pretty sweet deal.

I turned to RAW twice last night during commercials on other channels. I saw the Tiger chase and DX reading the Little People's Court sign. Back to the game and Top Gear I went. I saw maybe five seconds of RAW based on these random moments.

Perhaps my attempt at humor was lost on you? ; )

Spaceman Spiff,
I see what you mean, but HHH and HBK have always seemed like they cared more about what they do than this, outside of maybe Katie Vick.
