This show wasn't great by any stretch, but I don't think it was half as bad as the Slammy's episode. Cena/Swagger was surprisingly good (although the finish was a bit anticlimactic), and the six man was pretty fair as well, although I might just be biased because I like Kofi and Evan Bourne, and they let Evan hit his move last night. I also liked Santino's comedy bit. I'm not going to try and defend the crap (which was crap), but I think the positives last night were enough to keep it from being considered one of the worst shows of the year.

My problem is that the segments are so terrible that I lose intrest channel surf and feel so degraded by the time I actually catch a match that I'm either only paying half attention to it or just can't get into it at all.

Yep, I'm with you. Last night's show was mostly unfunny crap mixed in with good to great matches. Last week's show was mostly unfunny crap mixed in with shit matches, including another damn paint-by-numbers Cena/Orton match.

Plus we at least once again had a guest host who wanted to be there and had fun with it (unlike Miller, even though I liked some of his jokes).

But Dennis Miller was less cringeworthy to watch than Johnny because Miller was so much smoother and always in control. Damon wanted to bring out the diva.aaaaaaas[voice crack].

Dennis Miller is expected to be much funnier and entertaining as a public speaker than Damon.

I mean sure he didn't have any Republican jokes to bomb with, but that's not what he signed up



for.

Not the worst Raw of the year, but perhaps one of the most boring guest-hosts.

Johnny Damon looked like he had no desire to be a guest host with the charisma (or lack thereof) he showed. Why did he keep referring to that after 2010 he doesn't know where he will end up? Was that a way to get across to the Tampa Bay audience that he could potentially be a Ray? Whatever it was, it was lame.

Enter Tiger and the model; hasn't the media overall covered this story too much already? That was perhaps the most pointless part of Raw.

Swagger vs. Cena was defintely the best part of Raw and like their previous match, this match did not disappoint (and yet the WWE is deciding to crap on this guy even though this guy has main event status written all over him).

Sheamus looked like a formidable champion as he squashed MVP or what was close to a squash match (at one point, wasn't the WWE going to elevate MVP also? Dude needs to turn heel again. I have also heard that Sheamus is friends with Trips which proves backstage politics can rule of what happens to you in your career).

The whole DX/ Hornswoggle thing has run its course, though I thought when Triple H said, "What I want for Christmas is to squash him" was slightly amusing.

So far the best guest host may have been Shaq but that is in debate as there have been many lackluster guest hosts and a few worth noting (and I almost forgot that Damon was guest host with him being barely involved in Raw at all).

To make SportsCenter on ESPN, which it did. Mission accomplished.

WHAT WORKED: I liked Samoa Joe’s mic work and for the first time since he was seconding a Mummy in SMW, I actively enjoyed James Mitchell mic work. Sting talked about how he needed to be humble before Christ.
