    Raw starts off live from Bakersfield, California with a recap of the events between Vince McMahon and Donald Trump. Don't tell me that the Wwe Championship and everything else is taking a backseat to Trump & McMahon? It was a good little thing to continue Vince as a heel. Does Vince not remember that they are picking a representative for the match? Yes, Britney Spears is one ugly mofo. I honestly think she's gone off the deep end. She's making K-fed look better everyday. I really didn't care too much for the different pictures of what Trump might look like after Wrestlemania. I figured Vince would use Umaga. I also figured Trump or even Vince might use a "tryout" match to figure out who his rep would be. It would be a great way for them to fill some time so we wouldn't have to waste time with Khali or a Diva Contest. I like T&A, but not on precious air time when it can be used for other things. Why give Umaga the Ic title? I'm a big fan of Jeff Hardy. I've said that before. Now, it could be that they are going to use Hardy in the Money in the Bank match. Vince wants the Hardys and Mnm to go on singles paths. So, the Mitb would be the best bet. The match was pretty good. I didn't really expect Hardy to retain. I figured there was a slight chance he would get a DQ victory, but oh well. I hope Vince has bigger plans for him. The Carlito-Flair-Cade-Murdoch tag was weird in a way. I'm kind of expecting Carlito to turn heel on Flair. It was just like, there was a doubt in my mind that Carlito was gonna hit the backcracker on Flair and be done with it. It's good to see Carlito has a "new passion" for the business. Before you ask, yes, I saw the plugs for the Money in the Bank Qualifying Match between the only two winners, RVD & Edge. The Mitb is a good launching pad for the next "big" star in the coming year. I hope CM Punk or Kennedy win.

    The promo between Cena and Michaels was good. It was funny as hell when they were about to "fight" and they plug their Dvds. The plugs were funny, too. They were competing and telling which one had the better stuff. My only thing was, why bring the Fat Oily Guy in? I know they eliminated him, but damn. The whole segment was good! The Marine has been out, but will never be the #1 movie.

    Edge brought up a good point for the Wwe Championship match. They could cash it in and make it a 3-way match. I highly doubt that will happen, but it's possible. The qualifying match was probably the match of the night. Edge and Rvd put on a Great match. These guys work well together. This was a great match. Rvd loses once again because management knows he's probably going to Tna I really hate that Rvd is going to get buried for the next couple of months. Maybe if creative weren't such pricks, he would probably stay. Ok, here's what I don't understand. You have Melina who has a reputation for being a **** and having heat on her since her days on Smackdown. She comes over to RAW and her reputation and attitude doesn't get any better. YET, she is getting a push and Tv time more than some guys or girls who Deserve a push? What the hell is going on? You bury Rvd because he Might go to the competition and he's ticked the way things are going? Yet, Melina can be a pain in the ass & rub people the wrong way and she wins the Women's Championship? What the hell is that? Cm Punk speaks out about getting buried in the Not-Really-Extreme Elimination Chamber match and he gets buried by Holly & Striker? I mean, it's a big stage, but I would not want to work in the Wwe. The good wrestlers get held down and the ones that piss everybody off go straight to the top. There's something wrong there. Poor Todd Grisham gets his ass kicked too much. He looked like he was really going to cry.

    In an interesting note, the college I go to played a team in baseball called the Highlanders this weekend and buried them. It was somewhat ironic that the Crappy Khali came out and buried the Highlanders. Glad they changed the look of their kilts this week. That's all that I have to say about that.

    It's good to see Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig inducted into the Hall of Fame. There were some of the things he did I couldn't believe. He would always nail his gum when he would spit it out. He kind of sucked in Wcw. After all, he was a member of the watered down nWo. The main event between Orton and Cena was interesting. I really haven't heard much of what they are going to do with Orton at Wrestlemania. I figured he would go against Edge, but apparently Rated Rko is still together. It's amazing how the women and children go nuts over Cena. I know they have a tag match next week for the belts, but it seems like they are putting Wrestlemania on the back burner. Maybe after next week, they will focused on the title match. I figured Hbk would come out to make the save. Lashley, take notes. That's how you lay chair shots on people and make them look legit. You don't play nice with a steel chair. Remember when the Rock nailed Ken Shamrock with a chair and make it look very sickening? Ok, do it like that. Next week will be interesting. Maybe next week is when Hbk turns on Cena or vice versa.moreless
  • WHAT?

    Well, this one is how I am going to do this. Right now I am po'ed again. The last time I was po'ed was DX against Cade and Murdoch. The reason why, because of "The heart break kid" Shawn Michaels and " The Smooth talking Cowyboy" Lance Cade! Well guess why this time I am po'ed? Because Ric Flair and Carlito face against Cade and Murdoch just minutes ago. I am stinking mad because of "The Nature Boy " Ric Flair and "The Smooth talking Cowboy" Lance Cade. Now you are wondering why I am mad at these two? Well because, when Cade was growing up, he watch Ric Flair. Plus I respect Ric Flair and you know the rest! Now these two are at each other and somehow those two along with Carlito and Trevor Murdoch are going to have a feud. But I hope not. Anyway, earlier Mr.McMahon insults Donald Trump. Which that was nearly lame. Plus he choose who is going to repersent for him. The Samoa buldozer, Umaga. By the way Umaga is the intercontinantal champion, thanks to Mr.McMahon booking Jeff Hardy.

    Also Cena and Michaels promote their dvds. Which it wasd funny. By the way you can get The Marine on DVD now and the New and Improve DX DVD avaible tomorrow on wweshop.com. Right Now I am hearing off The match between Edge and RVD for the quallyfing the Money in The Bank tornament, now. It looks like Edge could win but wait let me see, oh crap, Edge wins after RVD got distracted by Randy Orton.

    Ok, some bad things happend. Melina is the women's champion. Mickie James Slaps Todd Grisham.

    Good thing is that "Mr.Perfect" Curt Hennig is going to be inducted to the hall of fame.

    Mick Foley is releasing his latest autobiography, The Hardcore Diaries.

    The Main Event got out of control. Due to Rated RKO madness against Cena. But Michaels save his butt.

    Next week on RAW: CENA and MICHAELS vs. RATED RKO for the tag team titles!moreless
  • Umage defeats Jeff Hardy for IC title. Carlito and Ric Flair def. Cade and Murduch Melina def. Mickie James Great Khali def. Highlanders Edge def. RVD MITB match John Cena vs Randy Orton (no contest)moreless

    Great to see two new champson raw, it was good for Umaga to get a title and someone needed to have the IC title so that Jeff Hardy can team up with his brother to face MNM. Good to see a new womens champion as well, although i didn't think it was going to be Melina. But McMahon choosing Umaga to represent him was a goog choice. Definelty have to agree that it was the best raw they have had in a while. Also had a good main event, shame thst it ended with a DQ, i would have liked to have seen would would have been victourious.moreless
  • This night was fantasic. and two new champs!

    on raw alot of shocking things happen. umaga is vince's partner at wrestlemaina23. and vince gave umaga a IC title match with jeff hardy. and hardy lost. i was shocked. so was my brother. and there was the second title match it was melina vs mickie for the women's title. and melina beat mickie to become the new women's champion. also mickie slapped the HELL out of todd. that was funny.also edge beat rvd to go to wrestlemaina23 for the money in the bank match. and next week it will be world tag team championship re-match. cena and HBK vs rated RKO. and trump will tell us who is his representive for wrestlemaina23. this night was exciting but it also made me mad. two of my favorite wrestlers got beat on raw. also cena and HBK was helping each other and HBK did say that he will protect cena until wrestlemaina23. so HBK can hurt him a wrestlemaina all by him self.moreless
  • Best Raw in awhile.

    Well first off McMahon comes out and wastes a good 10 minutes about Trump and announces that Umaga will be McMahon reperesentive at WM. Then we have Umaga vs Hardy and Umaga beats Hardy to win the IC title, Can't believe Hardy lost this match. Then it was Ric Flair and Carlito vs Cade and Murdoch it was pretty good match with Flair and Carlito winning, I hope Flair turns on Carlito. Then Cena and HBK had a pretty funny interview. Then we had Edge vs RVD for a money in the bank qualifying match, was the best match of the night, with Edge winning because of interference from Orton, Then we had Khali vs highlanders stupid match with Khali squashing both men. Then Curt Hennig was inducted into the Hall of Fame which I was happy about. Then tha main event was Cena vs Orton was a really good match but then Edge interfered and it was a DQ.moreless
