So Either Morrison is being completely buried or they'll have him snap and turn heel. I don't see him going anywhere on Raw either way. Barrett and Sheffield came out of last night looking good the rest of Nexus? Not so much. The count out wins did nothing for them. Cena's opening promo was terribly unfunny and incredibly obnoxious even for him. Wonder if Young gets shipped back to FCW or feuds with Nexus? I suspect he's a few months from getting released either way. I didn't hate Raw last night as much as Todd Martin did but I really thought it was rather bad. Lawler jumped the shark as an announcer over ten years ago but these days he's as shitty as ever. Cole would make a good heel color commentator with Ross doing the pbp.

Cole's heel mic work with Bryan must be working if I'm posting about it. Cole on Bryan = minor leagues and he sucks. Cole on Kaval = independent scene and I respect him. The inconsistency annoys me and I'm actually annoyed that I'm annoyed.

I really, really want the announcers to stop yelling "VINTAGE ORTON!!!!" or "VINTAGE CENA!!!!!" whenever these guys do moves the announcers apparently don't know.

The best part of Raw - possibly ever - was that one fan who absolutely screamed "I HATE YOU HEATH SLATER. I HATE YOU." I just about died laughing.

The new tag belts are kind of ugly - Thrill's right, they remind me of the belt Hogan won from Iron Sheik - but they got rid of one set of belts so I am thrilled. Now let's drop the US, Divas', and World titles while we're at it.

Was he the same guy yelling "We remember the Brood" at Edge?

I don't hate the new tag belts but I liked the visual of the tag champs having four belts to carry around, especially when the Miz had the US title and the tag belts.

I don't care if they hit Sheamus in the back, those eight chairshots from Randy didn't look very PG. I gotta say, though, these last couple weeks it seems like Randy has FINALLY figured out how to be a full-on face and I like him better than I thought I would.

Other than that, I got nuthin'. I just keep reminding myself that even at its best the nWo/WCW angle didn't make awesome shows EVERY time so I give this one a pass. It is too bad though because RAW had so much momentum and now it has kind of come to a halt in one show.

Daniel Bryan is a vegan, as far as I know Kaval is not. PETA publicly questioned a decision made by WWE management, thus are evil. Michael Cole is the mouthpiece for WWE management, thus he hates vegans. Of course, Michael Cole hated Daniel Bryan prior to PETA being involved but I'm only applying WWE logic here, not actual logic.

Or they just stumbled upon something with Cole being an irritating douchebag earlier this year and are gonna push it for all its worth. Heel play-by-play/face colour guy is a fairly fresh dynamic.

I think they need to put two of the non-Barrett Nexus guys with the Hart Dynasty for NotC. Sheffield and Gabriel would be fun tag champs.

I concur, but I fear they may continue to hide Otunga's shortcomings by having him in tag matches so t'will be he and A.N. Other that get the title shot. Is the ban on Nexus competing for titles up before the next PPV? Has 90 days really gone that quickly? Yikes.

Speaking of Otunga, if they wanted to clear some room for the Season 2 Ns they could've started with him. The man has nothing. Doesn't look imposing, can't wrestle, can't orate, zero charisma. Titus O'Neill's dog bark was at least 46 times greater than the combined total of everything Otunga has done in the WWE.

Asides that, I don't mind a slight lull in proceedings while we wait for whatever new members might be coming into Nexus - be they Season 2 cast-offs or an all-powerful leader. Show was just OK and had far too many non-finishes, but there was still enough for me to enjoy between Sheamus, Orton and Miz that I'm not going to be too grumbly about it.

Does Gaberiel jump for the 450 or is it a falling 450? It makes it look better if he doesn't jump. How fast he can turn in the air.

Only problem with the new tag belts is that they are called the WWE tag titles. Not the World Tag Titles. Does this mean all the history of those belts is not done?

Having a quick glance at the WWE.com title history page, they're keeping the lineage of the original WWF Tag Team Titles/World Tag Team Titles. There's no mention of the WWE Tag Team titles introduced by Stephanie McMahon on Smackdown. That being said, I've only glanced at the list, I could be wrong.

I heard that too, and I could've sworn Slater reacted to it.

And I'll have to disagree with whoever said "Cena was the funniest he has been in awhile". He's only funny if you're in your pre-teens.

I thought Cena WAS the funniest he'd been in a while - it's just not that high a bar. If nothing else, I laughed at him singing the Meow Mix song (CRZ's fault).

I find Super Randy Orton as annoying as Super John Cena, but I seem to be in the minority with that for now.

It's too bad Tarver pretty much sucks, because he's got the look and the mask to make a nice enforcer.

I'm not sure why John Morrison can't be a heel on Smackdown unless he is selling a boat load of merchandise to preteen girls.

DING DING DING! We have a winner! I started to notice a few months ago that Morrison was starting to get those preteen girl screams that Jeff Hardy used to get oh-so-much.

I won't lie, though. Miz bringing up the Jannetty comparison is probably the worst thing that could have happened to poor Morrison. He'll never be able to escape that unless he gets back to SmackDown ASAP.

Wasn't the criticism PETA gave McMahon the result of them firing Daniel Bryan, and that came after Cole had already been going full-bore "I HATE HIM FOR SOME REASON" mode for months? Or is there another incident from last year or something I can't remember?

I counted twelve times last night:
1. Nexus comes to the ring en masse to open Raw.
2. Wade Barrett waiting in ring.
3. Barrett's victory.
4. Michael Tarver waiting in ring.
5. Tarver's victory.
6. Justin Gabriel's ring entrance.
7. Skip Sheffield & David Otunga waiting in ring.
8. Sheffield & Otunga's victory.
9. Heath Slater waiting in ring.
10. Slater's victory.
11. Darren Young waiting in ring.
12. Nexus in ring at the end of Raw.

It's a good thing I like the song...

I hope we get Bryan/Cole at WrestleMania and have it just be Cole getting the shit kicked out of him for ten minutes.
