Hello everyone and welcome to A RAW Opinion, I’m Joe and I’m here as always bringing you through the weeks episode of WWE Raw, while giving my own opinions throughout the show. Tonight’s show emanates from Dayton, Ohio and we are 24 hours removed from the Survivor Series, now I won’t get into it, but I will say, I LOVED the ending. I will say that this is one of the very few times I have been excited for a Raw telecast, and the first time in a long time.
We start the show off with Ryback coming out from the back and going to the ring, they’re giving Ryback promo time here tonight. Ryback said last night three men took food out of his mouth and he’s calling out Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns out to fight him 3 on 1 or he’ll tear the place apart looking for them. Vickie Guerrero comes out and tells Ryback he will not be tearing anything apart or else he’ll be subject to a fine or a suspension. Vickie books Ryback VS Tensai up now. Awesome…
Ryback VS Tensai in our opening match, Tensai gets some offense in which I was surprised about. Ryback kept saying CM Punks name throughout the match. After a couple of offensive moves Ryback takes control and hits Shellshock to pick up the win, boring match.
Up next, Wade Barrett takes on Kofi Kingston in a non title match. Good match between these two, Barrett gets a clean win over Kofi, nice to see it seems like they’re giving him somewhat of a push.
Kaitlyn VS Aksana up next. Kaitlyn gets the win in a quick match, I wish they would actually give her the divas title, I like her. Surprised that nothing happened after the match with Eve coming out or some kind of stare down.
R Truth is on commentary for our next match, Brodus Clay VS Antonio Cesaro is up next. Cesaro gets the win with The Neutralizer.
Vickie Guerrero comes out to the ring with two people, she says they’re apparently eye witnesses, she says one is a waitress at the hotel diner where AJ and Cena had their business dinner, the other is a parking attendant, AJ came out and says she’s had enough of Vickie coming out there week after week trying to create some kind of scandal. Cena comes out and says Vickie is full of crap, he then kisses AJ, this dumb thing goes on until Ziggler comes out and goes after Cena, he chases Ziggler from the ring, I’m confused about that segment, denying it the whole time and then all of a sudden a make out session? Alright…
Alberto Del Rio is out next for a match, his opponent is Randy Orton, this is a 2 out of 3 falls match. Del Rio gets disqualified in the first fall after destroying Ortons arm on the ring post. Del Rio takes the second fall after a cross arm breaker, Del Rio kept it locked in a little longer until he finally let go. Super Orton gets the win. Same shit, different week.
The Great Khali VS Primo and Epico, Hornswoggle comes out from the back with flowers before the match and stands at ringside. Hornswoggle walks over to Rosa with the flowers, he puckers up for a kiss, Rosa looks like she’s about to and the flowers squirt her with water, Khali wins, stupid.
The Miz VS David Otunga is up next. Miz gets the win, decent match. Otunga is getting a little better in the ring, he’s still not all that special. Miz seems over as a face, I still think he’s annoying though.
Sheamus is out next and he talks about last night and about how Big Show has been beating up Regal, blah blah blah, Big Show comes out next they go back and forth, Big Show says Sheamus doesn’t deserve another chance at the World Heavyweight Title, Damien Sandow comes out next and heads to the ring, apparently Sheamus VS Sandow is scheduled to happen next.
Sheamus VS Damien Sandow sees Sheamus get the win with the Brogue Kick after another good match, I still don’t like Sheamus as a face, I’d rather him a heel.
Backstage incident with AJ and Ziggler, Cena eventually was taken out after being kicked in the knee and sent through a prop bathroom stall.
And the hits just keep on coming, Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio in tag action up next, their opponents are Team Hell No in a non title match. Prime Time Players were on commentary for this, I was wrong, this was a very good tag match, ending kind of sucked though, Prime Time Players interfered, not sure the result since the ref rang the bell and no decision was announced.
Up next is CM Punks celebration for his 1 year anniversary of being WWE Champion. Ryback comes out from the back and interrupts, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose attack Ryback! Ryback is able to get past them for a second until the numbers game catches up, they put Ryback through the announce table again. The show goes off the air with CM Punk standing over Ryback with his arms in the air.
Overall, I thought it was a great show. The end was a predictable, but I didn’t mind seeing as I’m a HUGE fan of Rollins and Ambrose.
I give tonights show a 4/5. Great stuff, keeps me interested and excited for next weeks show, I can’t wait to see what they do with this group of Reigns, Rollins and Ambrose.
Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed it, leave comments and let me know what you thought about the show and the column.
