TKG: God this show sucked ass. I could have also lived forever without having to learn that pathetic Jim Ross hangs out backstage and tries to comfort ring rats disappointed with Coach's premature ejaculation.

JR: I'm so sorry, that happened to you sweet girl. i 'm so sorry. Please touch me . just touch me. Please!!! My ear isn't too disgusting, you wouldn't mind touching my ear would you?

EEEWWWW!!!

What Worked

TKG: Nice mic work by Foley. Nothing wrong with loving your flannel. I've never had a flannel shirt see how much money it can get out of me getting hit in the head.

PAS: Foley can still drop an awesome interview if he needs too. I am really amused by the idea of Shoji Nakamaki as an honorable, nice man.

TKG: Yeah, W*ng Kanemaru was such a nice man working so hard, it's just that lazy Jumbo who didn't sell for me.

TKG: Matt Hardy hits an actual bulldog on RAW. He had a headlock on it and everything. Fucking WWE cameras decide to do the WWE quick cut so you don't actually see the impact. but still nice bulldog. WWE cameras decide to show us Jericho's Mutoh style bulldog in all its shitty glory. Idiots.

PAS: I wouldn't let Flair blade me but it does leave a nice visual

TKG: Nice camera work there cutting away from Flair blading Shelton. Still show the fucking bulldog. Orton was semi fun in this as poor man's Guilotteen Le Grande to Flair's poor man's Bobby Cruise, Helmsleys poor man's Corino and Batista's poor man's Jeff Amdur.

TKG: Sweet, they gave Nick Dinsmore a mentally handicapped gimmick. last time someone worked handicapped gimmick they ended up main eventing a PPV against Vince McMahon, fired and then working for IWA-MS. I'm looking forward to Dinsmore vs. Steve Stone.

PAS: It is really stupid to give the retard gimmick to the mat worker. You have a dozen interchangeable roid guys in OVW who can't work a lick. Matt Morgans punches would actually make sense if he had Downs.

TKG: I liked the Trish vs. Lita sections of the battle royale. There singles section was the best layed out match on the show, and had more crowd heat than anything else on the show. I didn't see any point in having the early eliminations and not just doing it as a straight singles match as they could have built off the Lita/Christian angle. And they really should have had Christian accompany Trish to ring. Lita has really narsty stomps and kicks to the midsection. I don't understand them doing a face vs. face PPv but if they work it like Bruno vs. Spiros Arion it could be really good.

PAS: Gail Kim took a really nice bump, it is too bad she didn't get cut so she could work the Big Japan AV show. I would like to see the bumps she would take for Chocoball.

What Didn't Work

PAS: How the hell did the RAW roster cross the border twice with out being stopped. Don't tell me that Sylvain Grenier's sweat doesn't constitute a controlled substance.

PAS: This show was loaded with 5 minute jobber matches, Conway has a nice neckbreaker. But booking you world champion in an opening match where he gets no offense.

TKG: Yeah the member of La Resistance that they plan on pushing gets squashed by Jericho and then squashed by Austin on the way off the program but the La Resistance member whose lowest on totem pole gets to dominate the Heavyweight champ on offense. All the jobber matches involved the jobbers dominating on offense. Matt Hardy, Conway, Tajiri all controlled the match and got to throw out lots of offense. than their opponents just hit their finishers and won. This hurts everyone. Benoit, Jericho and Christian can all be controlled by jobbers. Tajiri, Conway and and Hardys offense is completely ineffective and loose after just eating finishers with no build. Everyone looks bad.

TKG: Hey Shelton Benjamin and Helmsley work the exact same match that Tajiri and Kane worked last week.

PAS: Also after a jobber like Matt Hardy got a ton of offense, it makes Shelton seem like just another jobber when he gets spots.

TKG: Flair is doing ring intros and doesn't call Benjamin "boy"? Bizzaro world.

TKG: Michael's comedy mic work stinks. Jesus threw the money lenders out of the temples, he didn't do Kevin Pollack schtick. I'll amuse them out of the temple.

If attacking a woman for not liking beer gets a positive crowd response, no wonder people think most wrestling fans are brain-dead hicks. The rest of the show was the usual tripe you expect from Raw these days.
