Chyna was robbed.

I'm big on Trish, but she had no right taking the award for Best RAW Diva. What has she done? A year worth of quality women's matches wins that?

Love her or hate her, Chyna changed the way we look at women in wrestling. She was a badass who could legitimately take out the men - something we will NEVER see again. One of a kind, and was wildly popular for the better part of 4 years.

Sunny could have also been considered, figuring she was the original diva, and pretty much paved the way for the busty beauties we see today. She was charismatic on top of it, which beats the pants off of the crew we have today.

Kudos to Mick Foley skipping the show. Stick to your principles and stay the hell away until they turn it around.

I'm just REALLY disappointed that the guests are non-existant. I realize this is building up to ending the night with either Austin or Bret - but considering the build up I think we all anticipated just a little more.

Is it just me, or did Rock say he was gonna lay the "tonka-tonk-tonkin' boom boom" on some candy asses?

Are there ANY former employees there? I mean, there's gotta be a million people that have been on Raw, and only current employees are there.

The Wrestlecrap package was great, and the "Tell Me A Lie" package was just.... just awesome.

Let's hear it for the Wall Of Indifference at the World. They ignored Rock's catchphrases, booed his impending return, and chanted "boring" at his speech (which looked pre-recorded, with Rock tripping on his lines to give the illusion of reality). I wonder what Vince thinks about the drawing potential of Rock now.

It's also nice to see that Foley is still blowing WWE off.

They hyped it up to have surprises guests and Austin isn't invited? Vince goes on this ramble of bringing back Austin and fails to deliver?

And Owen gets No.2?...

This is all complete and total bullshit. Some shit I could let slide, but Jeez Loueez. I never thought I'd say it, but this was the night I was embarrassed to be a wrestling fan. I wish this was all a bad dream, and that I'd wake up back in 1997 when my brother and I were the ONLY, seriously, ONLY wrestling fans in the wide group of people we'd associatw with. But I guess I'm just being a crybaby huh? May that be so, but WWE doesn't give a shit, and neither do I.

WWE SUCKS.

Ironic that the 10 year RAW speical develops the same problems that plague the show today--incoherent choices, grand amounts of time wasted and the most irritating thing of all, the dreaded bait and switch.

They should either planned ahead better (I know, I know) or kept the show to an hour, because after Vince sloshed his way through the Austin thing like Hunter Thompson on an acid binge the show seemed to take another two hours to finish.

Still, it was nice to see the old clips, I guess. Whatever happened to that show?

WWE thanks us fans?! Well they sure showed that sentiment well tonight... by pissing on us and the superstars who got dissed tonight. It's just my opinion, but WWE has insulted my intelligence and has wasted my time for the LAST time. I'm not spending another red cent to support this nonsense.

So MAYBE Steve Austin will return. MAYBE Raw will have an hour turned into Nitro. MAYBE WWE will turn shit around and have WRESTLING as the main drawing card. But as it stands, me being just another insignificant fan mark, smark, or whatever, I won't bother to watch, and it may be a LOOOOOONG time if I ever watch WWE programming again.

I urge all of you other fans out there to look for other organizations to enjoy wrestling if you're tired of this Bullshit like I am. Support the indies in your state. Buy tapes of other organizations. Buy old shit on tape. I'm a WRESTLING fan, and for something that is as mudane as that fact, I'd like to be able to spend my free time supporting other wrestling products that won't look at its fans as nothing but rubes.

Bye WWE. And Go on and FUCK YOURSELVES.

Judging by the winners of the awards tonight, nothing good was ever on Raw until about 1997. I can see Vince doing his Austin speech to cover for him not being there, but my lord NO returning stars?! Vince I want the two hours of my life back.



Thank you Lord....for giving me the strength....to beat the crap out of that man and damn near kill him with my bare hands!

Okay, here's the full list of winners, and the top 10 moments.

-Best Raw Diva: Trish Stratus
-"Don't Try This At Home" (most insane bump): Kurt Angle's moonsault off the cage
-"Gimme The Mic" Award (best promo skills): The Rock
-"Shut Up And Kiss Me" (best on-screen couple): Stephanie McMahon and HHH
-"Network Difficulties" (moment that caused the most network trouble): Mae Young gives birth to a hand
-Best Raw Match: Kane vs. Chris Jericho & Christian vs. Jeff Hardy & Rob Van Dam vs. Bubba Ray & Spike Dudley, TLC 4
-Superstar of the Decade: Steve Austin

Top 10 Moments...
10: This Is Your Life, Rock
9: Austin crushes Rock's car with a monster truck
8: the Raw/Nitro simulcast
7: the debut of Socko/Austin hits Vince with a bedpan and gives him an enema
6: DX impersonates the Nation
5: Tyson vs. Austin
4: DX invades Nitro
3: The Rock challenges Hogan
2: Raw Is Owen

AND THE NUMBER ONE MOMENT IN RAW HISTORY..........
Steve Austin gives The Rock and the McMahons a beer-bath.

It was a really bad show. What's the point of having a ten year anniversery and only showing the past 5 years? Not only that what's with the whole Slammy 2003 vibe? I thought they were going to show clips of the past ten years, that would have made for better television. This was another dissapointing effort by the WWE braintrust to say the least.

How odd - I find myself agreeing with Davros.

The show was majorly biased towards recent history (TLC 2002 as best match ever?), and also biased towards those still with the company (Trish as best Diva over Sunny (who had a really, really short promo) and Chyna). There was a lack of surprise guests - I guess the only "surprise" was Rock's "satellite" appearance (which, I suppose, held a surprise in the indifference shown Rock).

I hope someone with power noticed the pops Booker T and Shane-O-Mac received.

After seeing HHH's bare bottom, I can only say that Angle's is far better. Smoother, rounder, firmer...(ahem, pardon me). And HHH obviously forgot to pack clean underwear, because that really looked like yesterday's pair.

Did we really need to see Mae Young tonight - especially in The Hand Job? Especially when Pillman's Pistol was right there?

The Owen Hart Tribute comes in #2 to Austin's Beer Hose? That ain't right.

A disappointment.

Well, I liked the Wrestlecrap segment anyway. I guess I held a special place in my heart for the Bushwhackers, since they're my dad's favorite tag-team...

I enjoyed the show for what it was worth, free entertainment based on an obviously biased opinion towards the newer moments and stars. I don't ask the Fed to give me anything and they don't "owe" me anything either. I sat back, watched the show, and didn't cry when Steve Austin didn't show up, despite the fact they never mentioned that he or any past star not on the roster would be there.
Clearly this show was the biggest slap in the face to most of you out there, so get over it or stop watching.

This is not intended as an insult or a jab, but if you are tired of what they are giving you then just give up and stop watching/complaining. I can only imagine I'll get flamed to hell and back for supporting the big, bad devil himself.

Ok show, the matches were a slight step up from last week. The whole Gunner vs Storm needs a clear direction, honestly. Whose face? Who is heel? The match seemed alright but turned into a near clusterfuck at the end (what double count out, lol?)
