What happened to Randy Orton? Did he spend last week at promo camp or something? That was BY FAR the best promo he's ever cut.

I thought they could have done the Diva thing different..

when Christy grabbed the mic from Trish, pull a swerve and tell the fans she didn't need them in the first place and blah blah blah.

The Flair thing at the end was very anti-climatic. He didn't look for a second like he was about to jump sides, but his nonstop hugging of HHH and Batista made him look like he's on the way out..very uncomfortable.

Other than Benjamin opening up, I didn't catch much. I scanned through Tivo the rest of the night, especially since I'd seen the HBK/Y2J match a couple weeks ago.

Regal is working the face thing really well, I am pleasantly surprised.

THE RANDOM SHEET:

Just as a sidenote, I came into RAW this week having stumbled on a righteous junkshop find: namely, the copy of WrestleWar 92 I found for a dollar in a secondhand shop on the way home from work. I had never seen that particular WarGames match, and it is as good as advertised.

-Now, kids...here is the difference between someone who's used to doing opening promos and a guy who's not used to it. The moment out of HHH's speech I liked the most was the split-second pause during the listing of things the fans can do where he had the little smile seemingly to himself as if to say "This one's going well I think". Now contrast that with Sheldon's speech, which there was nothing wrong with, and I like Benjamin, but he still looks a little awkward with a mic in a big situation. Trips does not.

-Re Taboo Tuesday: They're taking the power out of the hands of the promoter, say they. Does that mean that us fans can stiff the cable company and gain certain favors from the locker room in exchange for a push? OK rest of you fans, I'll worry about the women's title booking, and what you do with the rest of the card is entirely up to you. Dibs.

Assuming of course everything is legitimate.

I realize they're leaning things in a certain direction to put fan thinking in a certain direction so that what they vote for equals roughly what they'd book. But, that said, I'll mosey back to one of my pet theories about wrestling...

[mosey mosey mosey mosey mosey]

...and say that an effective babyface title (and buildup) challenge should resemble that of a presidential candidate (figuratively, not in the JBL sense). Not in the sense that they should say WHY they'll make a good champion, but more in that they drum up support. If any of the four of them could actually SPEAK (I'll assume Benjamin takes the 4th slot on the ballot now), would there be anything wrong with the 4 of them standing side by side on podiums?

And see, people will be making comparisons to THIS coming election, when in reality the comparison that needs to be made is 1988:

Gearge H.W. Bush= HHH. In spite of his personal limitations as both a politician and a speaker, has smarter people around him than anyone else out there, and has a playbook full of dirty tricks to get what he wants.

Al Gore= Benoit. Has been around forever, and has even tiptoed around the national scene, but wasn't REALLY accepted by all but a small portion of the landscape until recently. Has a tendency to repeat himself during stump speeches and while no one would question ability, one would wonder if he has the presence to be the man, although no one questions his technical ability to do so. Also put in unfortunate situations at the most inopportune times.

Michael Dukakis= Edge. Started out early as the most viable candidate but in the end made it forward for lack of anyone else to be there. Nowhere near as engaging or as skilled as promised by others and has the potential to fall flat if given a big opportunity.

Gary Hart= Randy Orton. The candidate the party wants to give the biggest nudge to, as they feel he has the best chance of making it through to the promised land. However, his not being ready to take the final steps necessary and/or his tendency to get caught with his pants down at big moments undermine him more than anything.

Bob Dole= Shawn Michaels. Closer to BusHHH's ideology more than any of the other candidates, and have almost an on-off relationship because of it. Has a debilitating injury that he works through. High tendency to refer to himself in the 3rd person. Were each in a Main Event position during a presidential election prior to this, only it was unsuccessful, and H Bob K hadn't been a presidential candidate until now, going up against his former teammate.

Parts of that were a stretch, I grant you...but it was the principle of me putting my head down and not quitting until it was somewhere near finished. And that was a really crappy analogy by Mann...aren't you going to thank me?

-Keeping in mind I'm an armchair psychiatrist, for those who would say that the Flair booking makes no sense, I'm here to say that it does. This is a story of Id, Superego, and Everybody's All American getting to cut ribbons and show up at banquets, but nothing else.

[The following is explanation in story terms only]

Ric Flair comes out and dismisses all of the greats but himself, claiming to be the only legend that matters, because even though the body of Ric Flair is of advanced age, the mind/ego/id of Flair is still partying like it's 1985, and that gets ahead of everything else sometimes, so that when you have Orton come out and make points like "stop kissing HHH's ass" the 1985 mentality of Flair that is fully bloomed at that moment is willing to listen. Now, the part you saw on the couch was the 2004 Ric Flair, the one that's rooted in a deeper reality and telling the 1985 Flair that acts as Flair's id that although we likes to party, there is a part of you that has to come to accept that this isn't your time anymore, and that the best thing we can do is be around whose time we feel it is, namely HHH, to at least get a piece of what is was like to be champion and to be the man...it was the same unspoken story told in Greenville.

...unless of course it was a setup all along and Flair was just being a dick the whole time.

[By the way, sidenote: Notice ever since Vince actually started wearing neckties, which he stopped doing somewhere around 1994, that Orton has become less likely to wear one and has been wearing his suits Vince-style?]

-They tried to break Kristy's pride, before they realized that anyone in that competition didn't have any to begin with. Although, someone get her some clear heels, STAT.

God DAMN you, Thomas...get out of my head. Didn't look horrible in the ring, but didn't look outstanding, either. Which led to my favorite line of the night:

"Val has a great respect for life"

Since WHEN? I realize he's such a head up his ass conservative in real life that he could very WELL be pro-life, but I don't think that's what they meant. So as a pornster with a great respect for life, he would be, what, one level removed from Jack Horner in "Boogie Nights"? Even if Snitsky was all "You're not the fucking boss of Dirk!!" by the end of this match. By the way, "it's not my fault" or a paraphrased version therein did not work as a long term catchphrase for The Krusty The Clown Show, and it won't be on RAW, either.

Although am I the only one who gets a Ken Shamrock vibe out of his promos?

-And SPEAKING of charisma, we have Captain Charisma and his faithful sidekick Ming The Heatless. Nice booking at the end of that tag match, as I'm not sure I'd want to see The New NEW Rockers team up TOO much, but they are fun to watch as a team. Plus, this is another example of pushing the fans in a certain direction leading up to Taboo Tuesday, since it seems to be more a Shawn-Xian thing than a Shawn-Xian-Jericho thing. Although someone who has their nose in the Observer further than they should needs to tell me who exactly in the locker room was referred to as Captain Charisma originally so that it could come out as part of the angle here (which I'd bet my new Saturn was sarcasm when first used).

NEXT WEEK ON RAW: Snitsky eats a chokeslam, but not before Kane has to run a gauntlet involving Gail Kim, Jazz, Batista and Stacy Keibler...We see the debut of the Christian 1, HBK 0 shirt while Jericho stands in the background grumbling about stolen ideas...Shelton Benjamin comes out of Pedigree to the floor exile to give HHH a WHATEVER THE HELL HIS FINISHER IS on the floor...Randy Orton tries to convince Fit Finlay back stage that he's a legend that shouldn't listen to anyone, only to be get a stiff kick in the nose for his trouble at the end of the night, and tune in next week when you'll hear HHH say:

"Read my lips...no new champions!!!"

I was disappointed for a few reasons, one it was Orton giving the speech. He did a good job with it, but he has to learn to slow down with the promos, he was going a 100 miles a minute with it. It was like watching a freshman in a theater class get out all of their lines, so they could get a good grade regardless of the presentation. Orton has a connection with Flair, but it didn't feel as deep when HBK did it in Greensboro. If Benoit did then I think it would have some more meaning behind it. I think even Cena doing it would have been better, I know they have no connection, but its hard with Cena's throwback era lines not to have a connection.

The promo lead to nothing. If they are going to bust out these promos then don't half ass it. Yes, Flair is the greastest heel ever, but the old Ric Flair is no one's bitch. That is what he is in Evolution. It made sense for him to turn face, keeping him heel showed another lack of imagination with the writers. Its like they get so far with a good idea then drop the ball t the end.

Lastly, I really wished I had given that promo to Flair, so jealousy is another reason for my disappointment. This is not the Ric Flair, I know that is in Evolution. The Ric Flair I know would have screwed HHH out of the title by now and danced all night.

I'm in agreeance with you here. My optimistic guess is that it leads to a)an Orton-Flair feud; and b)a slow, drawn-out face turn for Flair much like we were hoping for with Orton. Maybe this is Flair's "final run".

Couple things stood out last night for me...

Randy delivers his best promo in a long time in his attempts to turn Flair... but as much as the fans want to cheer him, I don't think the time was right for him to go face. Without Flair, what is Evolution? Batista and HHH? Doesn't fit the paradigm of past, present and future -- it barely can be called a stable. H would have to recruit new members, pronto, and completely revise the Evolution concept in the process. I don't think that Raw's ready for that.

But that said, they'd better have a good explanation for why Flair didn't turn come next week. I can count on Flair to deliver a good promo laced with legacy and history, so hopefully they've thought of this ahead of time... but with WWE writers, you can never bank on them planning ahead, sooo...

Forehead-smacking echoed through my apartment during the Diva bit. Of COURSE they'd hire the amazing plastic woman with no personality! She's got the PLAYBOY label, like the little stickers you find on bananas. That means she's money in the bank, right? Despite the actual winner having far more energy and charisma? Right.

Couple that with the standard "Golly, I love stripping to my bra and panties!" routine for the stock WWE face diva and we've got a sad state of affairs. Not that this divasearch stuff ever looked up, but there was a glimmer that the right person won and we'd get a spunky, energetic character that didn't have to rely on the standard exhibitionist gimmick.

I have to wonder why I can't find the time to watch Smackdown on the Tivo, when Raw usually delivers a mixed bag like this. I read the spoilers, think "Okay, I don't really need to watch that" and usually delete it. Yet every week I watch Raw quasi-live (with an hour lead-up so I can skip commercials and bad segments). Glutton for punishment, maybe...

Orton gave his best promo since Bad Blood, but they wrote themselves into a corner because there was no logical way to get Flair to turn on HHH and have any long-term potential.

I forgot who said this earlier. But St. Louis and KC are not the same. See 1985 World Series.

I think they've set themselves well for Taboo Tuesday. HHH/HBK or Benoit is a win win situation. Orton/Flair is what they should have started with on the Orton face turn rather than a short title run, and I think the fans will eat it up. Y2J/Christian should be solid. At least, the top of the card looks better than anything since Backlash.

I didnt catch the show, but PWInsider.com is flipping out because of Kane's "My son is dead, but he isnt (won't?) be the only one" line. Apparently, they're completely appalled & disgusted at the lack of class on WWE's part for having Kane say something like that in the same building where Owen Hart died.

(On a side note, PWInsider also reports that Lita was supposed to be on the show last night, but someone forgot to tell her that [even though they bought her a plane ticket] so she didnt show up. When WWE finally figured that out, they had to completely rewrite last night's angle at the last second and that Kane line somehow made it in there, but it would have gone a completely different way had Lita been there.)

ANYWHO, with the huge deal PWInsider is making out of Kane's line, I was kinda suprised not to see any mention of it anywhere else. Did anyone who watched the show last night catch it at all?

I don't really see that as the standard exhibitionist character. Consider what usually happens in these bra and panties matches.

Be the diva a face or heel, when stripped down she inevitably covers up with mock humility and shame in her near-nudity.

She lept up on the ropes in booty panties for all the world to see. I've never seen one of the divas do that. *shrugs* Not that it takes a lot more guts than standing in your bra and panties, but hey. I think it was a bit different than the "standard" in this case.

Yes, he threatened to kill Snitsky. I didn't think of Owen Hart when he said it and I find it hard to believe anyone who isn't looking for a reason to get mad thought of him either.

They did use words & phrases like "died" and "unfortunate accident", which caused me to immediately think of Owen.

I realize it's pretty difficult to ignore the storyline for the week because they're in the same arena, but it was a little off-putting.

I don't know, what about Wrestlemania where Sable, Torrie and Stacy all stripped down before the match started and Miss Jackie didn't want to (and was thus heel for the match)?

I gotta give props to the smark (s) who had the great signs in the front rows last night. The "I worship the Black Scorpion" line was awesome, plus he got the "Wrestlecrap" sign on TV and even had JR and King talk about the Christian sign.

Oh, and the other sign was "Kneel before Zed/Flair" with Zed crossed out. While it's probable that Zed is some friend of his, I couldn't help but think that it could have been a shoutout to a certain "Benevolent Dictator."

Thoughts about RAW:

-Big Boss Man's dead, I knew it all along but it didnt hit me until I saw that the show was dedicated to him. I have to admit my eyes got teary. He's wrestling angels now...

-Randy Orton with a great speech, kicked ass; if he can deliver more material like that I might reconsider him.

-Shelton Benjamin, now thats a future I can live with. "All the kleenex in.. (wherever they were) .. cant clean that nose" (I might be paraphrasing).
well, it was funny.

-Rosey/Hurricane v. Rhyno/Tajiri in a decent match, interesting but what ever happenned to the heel turn for Hurrricane?

MOMENT OF THE DAY

After rejoining Evolution, Ric Flair is hugging Triple H in reconciliation. Then Batista signals in what can only be subtitled as, "Hey! dont I get a hug?" -oh well.

Not too sure if it's still working...

But if it is, VERY disturbing



Two hours later they decided to stop at a diner
Because they loved the smell of eggs and coffee
I just had to smoke a cigarette and wear a hat
By the time that they set off again, the sun was starting to set
It made the sky look red like a nuclear ray
One of them said "what do you want more than anything
in this whole wide world
Do you want money, do you want sex, or do you want all that success?"
I thought about that one myself

Meh, who could manage to look bad after a speech like that? Orton didn't do a terrible job, but he didn't do a great job either. It was your standard Orton fair with delivery..only the product given to work with being better. I agree with A Fan, that the speech would have worked better with someone more deserving, who had a better connection to Flair. Besides, it was a inferior repeat of last year's incident..where the timing, connection and delivery from Michaels made it just right.

Though some people might have a point that a Flair turn doesn't yeild many sensible conclusions, you still can't help but have hope..even if sarcastic hope. While I was certainly predicting a rerun of South Carolina occuring before Orton even began his speech, you still can't stop that disappointing feeling you get from the E once again reminding us how they plan to continue basically shitting on Flair's legacy.

The diva contestants wear WAY too much make-up, they remind me of drag queens. And how did I know that we wouldn't be seeing the last of Skankmella...she's a PLAYMATE OF THE YEAR afterall and an honorable achievement as such cannot go unrewarded.

I was talking with a buddy of mine today about Flair and the teased turn during the Orton speech, and came to an interesting idea.

I guess this falls in the realm of fantasy booking, so I hope I don't get crapped on for it, but here goes:

Flair toadies to HHH, as he has been, up until Taboo Tuesday. HHH and Orton of course fight at TT.

Match procedes, blah blah. Flair arrives, fans go crazy -- he chair shots HHH. Fans go ballistic. Chanting his name, cheering like they've never cheered before (eat your heart out, Hogan). Batista runs in, gets a chair shot from Flair then an RKO from Randy.

Orton, of course, signals to Flair that he's the man, and makes a move to capatilize on the gimme by pinning an unconscious HHH... only to eat a chair shot from Flair too, who struts about like a madman all over HHH, Batista, and Orton's busted up bodies.

Flair then pulls a mic from his suit, says something simple yet poignant like "I don't need Hunter, I don't need Batista, I don't need you, Orton, I don't need anybody! I'm Rick, WOO! Flair, THE legend, I am wrestling, WOO!"

Kneels down, picks up the belt, slings it over his shoulder, struts a bit, then leaves the ring.

Footage shows him getting into his limo.

Ride off into the sunset.

Curtain falls, and that, my friends, would be a truly classic Flair moment. THE heel, spanking heels and faces a like, because it's his belt, and nobody else's.

Of course, that would only really work if Flair genuinely retired and left WWE television. Otherwise, ya have to figure out how to write him back in (heel? face? tweener? what?), which lessens the impact. But as a retirement moment, that would rock.

I'd also prefer it at Wrestlemania, not Taboo Tuesday! :P

From the start:

Big Boss Man/The Boss/Big Bubba Rogers/Guardian Angel/Ray Traylor...we will miss you.

1) Bischoff/HHH/Benjamin -> HHH was hilarious ranting against the crowd, very funny with the fries remark. But, it went right to the usual until Benjamin comes. He is just as funny with the toilet paper remark.

2) HHH/Benjamin -> nice match, but the quick DQ finish got me. At least Benjamin still hasn't lost to HHH, but every time he wins, he ends up getting a beating.

3) Simon Dean -> "Look, I have a stupid voice, but I want to make you look good..." Snooze. Can't wait to see you come in. I'm sure everyone will know that you are a heel when you see the crowd at the arena. And probably in a few months, I'll be back in Ohio Valley getting retooled.

4) Hurricane/Rosey vs Rhyno/Tajiri -> I'm just waiting for Cane & Rosey to do the superhero pose and then...whack on Rosey. Dad's comment on what JR said about Rhyno "Manbeast, what's wrong with you JR." A little surprised about the Cane/Rosey win, guess no turn tonight.

5) Outside Kemper Arena in Kansas City...JR, please, don't mention the word tragedy when showing the exterior of one of the worst tragedies in wrestling history.

6) Grisham/Kane talk -> Pretty much what is expected.

7) Benoit/Regal/Eugene with scissors -> Funny.

8) Snitsky/Venis -> Oh, no. Val Venis is, in our opinion, the new version of Hacksaw Jim Duggan. Once his music starts, we start groaning. Not much of a match, but Snitsky is one scary guy.

9) WM 21 sold out in less than one minute. Probably by WM 25, they will probably say, "Sold out in 5 seconds." Whatever.

10) Flair/Orton -> Great promo.

11) HBK/Y2J vs Christian/Tomko -> nice match, but what was that ending.

12) HHH/Batista talks and growls.

13) Regal/Eugene/3 guys -> OK, where's the laugh track for this. I think it's going to be the dress. We saw Bischoff get his head shaved, like, 3-4 years ago. Next time we saw him, he "Bob Barkered". Guess his hair was too short back then for the hair dye. Bischoff comes out, and exposes the haircut guy as an indy guy when he kicks him down. Would you even think about getting your head shaved in front of 10,000 people and millions more watching on TV?

14) Christy's initiation -> Wow, she's single, has money...hey, I am really available. Yeah, guess having Carmella on the TitanTron made it interesting. So we get a 3 on 1 bra & panties "match," which was nothing. But, she says she is comfortable with only bra & panties on. That's my girl. She leaves the ring, and leaves me smiling.

15) Orton/Batista -> match was OK until Big Nose comes in. Then when Flair comes in, low kick, chair shot, power bomb, pin. All I could say is "WE WERE FOOLED!!!" It is rare for the two of us to be fooled by a swerve. At least I wasn't as upset this night than that night with the Bischoff/JR cinder block incident, which I thought Austin was coming. That night, I just was too peeved about that.
On this night, I stayed until the end, bored as ever, as Evolution celebrates and JR just goes on and on babbling incoherently.

I'll be back probably on the weekend for Smackdown, where we get to see a replay of a dart getting stuck to the Big Show. What fun this is just getting my opinions sent to all of you.
