    On a completely unrelated noted, don't have your COO punch out an employee immediately before ordering him to be beaten up more and fired the same night you want your Co-Principal Owner to threaten to fire a different employee for pushing her. Brad Maddox should get David Otunga's help to sue and become new Chief Operating Officer and Principal Owner of Stephanie McMahon.

    Anyway, Raw is on a cold, cold streak and in major need of a shake-up. I'm not excited about anybody, with the possible exception of Barrett, after just recently being super excited about Bryan/Shield/Cesaro/Barrett and others.
    Reshuffle pretty much every feud. Pay Lesnar to be in Money In The Bank. Turn Sheamus heel and one of Barrett or Cesaro face. Reveal that Rev. Lemelson is actually Vince Russo in disguise trying to destroy WWE through their public holdings. The only thing I actually liked about that episode was Cody calling Dave a "skinny jeans sellout" and Randy "RK-Blows" (and apparently legit cracking Orton up), followed by Batista sulking about the skinny jeans thing and HHH ad-libbing a pretty hilarious "Well...ya do got big legs..."


Yeah, somehow I didn't notice that. It is extremely shaky legal ground to fire someone for 'putting hands on the boss' when the bosses regularly assault their employees. I think they might be building up to some kind of Stephanie vs Brie match, which would probably be horrible. I don't know if Steph has ever wrestled, but I remember when her brother used to have matches and actually put on some entertaining shows. Somehow I doubt she'll be willing to go the Shane route of 'taking horrifically sick bumps off of high places', though.

I do have to agree that Cody's smart mouth was one of the highlights of RAW, though I forgot about it in the initial write-up. "Skinny jeans sellout" indeed, lol. I did notice that Orton lost his composure and had to turn his face away for a quick laugh at "RKBlows". Batista did better at the sulking bit, Orton managed to at least turn breaking character into a 'laughing off the challengers' bit, because I don't think he could have managed 'oh now it's ON!'-type anger when he was still laughing at Cody's line. It sucks that Cody's getting buried right now, when he can provide the line(s) of the night like that. They definitely need more charismatic mic workers right now, when several of their mid-carders need someone else to talk for them (Swagger and Cesaro come immediately to mind).

I do give props to Fox for selling the 'crazy bitch' angle better than AJ ever did. Still wondering why they didn't get Security out there after the Atomic Wedgie.

Steph has certainly wrestled before, she's a one-time WWE (then WWF) Women's Champion from 2000 - though she was not as regular as Shane and she was certainly not as good. Here's a video (youtube.com) of her title defense against Lita which headlined a Raw, with The Rock as the special guest ref.

Boy, if that isn't a sign that this show is swirling the toilet, I don't know what is.

By this point, I'm just presuming that virtually everyone on the roster is secretly a Rock- or Austin-level talent and we've just simply never seen it since creative is just that terrible.

That is my feeling too. 9 out of 10 times when a shows sucks or someone gets buried, it is creatives fault.

You clearly don't know what's best for business.
