Any time you can have a show with two stellar matches (Rey/Tajiri and Angle/UT), it's fine in my book. Benoit had an ok match with the A-Train as well.
The ending segment with Brock started out really cheesy, but got progressively better as it went along. I think creative is probably burning off these angles they had planned for Nathan Jones onto Lesnar, and Brock is selling the 'monster' role really well. Saying stuff like "It's a magic chair!" was actually kinda creepy instead of his sounding like Happy Fun Brock.
"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997
Well, we saw the continuation of what I think could be the feud of the year if the WWE does it right (which they are so far) (we all hopefully know that this is Cena/Guerrero)....I completely cracked up when he was in Steph's office going off in spanish...I really believe that if this feud is done right, it could elevate both guys into ME status
Besides that, we got some pretty damn good matches (Tajiri/Mysterio) and UT/Angle...Benoit once again pulls a decent match out of the A-Lame, also did anyone notice the canned "Shave your back" chants?...I like what they are doing with Shenequa (sp?) and I am curious to see if they try to move her over to RAW at some point...Brock was really on last night but they need O'Haire to teach him how to do the creepy laugh
Great show. I really enjoyed the entire thing. Rey/Tajiri was awesome as was Kurt/Taker. My only problem with the Angle match being the finish and the fact that Taker powered out of the ankle lock a billion times. I understand that those spots are meant to build suspense for the finish, but is it really necessary to do it five or six times?
I really think that Brock is coming along nicely with his character and interview skills. Last week he had the "I Tapped Out" promo which I think was his best to date and, aside from the fake laughter at the end, I thought the segment with Gowen was really well done.
TONIGHT! Well, Raw didn't do much to build towards the PPV. It's this Sunday, for those that didn't know. Maybe SD! will do a better job on the buildup front. Tonight, Drew McIntyre faces Teddy Long in the ring. If Long refuses, he's fired, playa!
