Raw is now a shadow of what it was. While showing glimpses of the excitement and entertainment it used to produce, they have expanded the rosters far too much and now they are forced to make rival shows(Smackdown). They are missing the key superstars that
I have reviewed on this before, but i have had a change of opinion. After watching summerslam and recent wwe programming, the writing is fine and the current superstars are also fine. But what they are missing is a talent like stone cold steve austin, the rock, hulk hogan. There is no longer a heel superstar, the calibre of the old triple h, a superstar with the charisma and electricity of the rock, or a superstar with the pure respect of Hulk Hogan. Bring back the greats and the WWe will again, be a success, and put their stardom beyond doubt.
Lita has wrestled maybe 5 matches in about two years, why did she deserve a title shot? Victoria or someone else should have gotten that. This is just ridiculous, Lita and Edge are now going to be out on Raw everynight bragging, and whining about how great they are, and not appreciated enough. I say give Mikie James a re-match, or some other diva, because Lita does not deserve that Womens championship. She deserves a good kick in the butt, maybe a broken nose. This is just dumb, I cant get it out of my head. So someone please tell me, Why did Lita get a title shot?
As I've come from a family that regularly watches wrestling, I've always been around it, and occasionally watched it myself. Of the WWE programming, I'd have to say RAW has always been my favourite. However, things seem to have changed for the worse fairly recently, and it doesn't look like they're going to get any better. Now, yes.. I do know that most of wrestling is simple gimmicks and choreographed moves and such, I'd like to start off by saying that. I, however, often found RAW quite entertaining in past years. It depresses me to see how horribly wrong a show can go over the years. RAW, and the WWE in general are a good example of that. I'd like to start of with the recent changes the WWE seems to be making.
First of all. There's all these stupid and annoying storylines that seem to be popping up everywhere. Over-dramatized, unemotional garbage that alot of fans seem to love and eat up. I think it's ridiculous, and I really think the WWE needs to start firing some of their storyline writers, since these are and have been no good for a while now.
Second is a huge difference from what I remember. Alot of the "matches" no longer rely on much talent. And in many cases there are slip ups where you can see that things are pre-determined to go one way or another. The gimmicks of some of the wrestlers seem to play into this at times.
The third thing is one of the worst mistakes the WWE could've ever made. Bringing back the ECW television show and it's roster, treating it like it's on it's own, when they make it blatantly obvious that it is not.
The WWE seems to be misusing alot of their talent. I mean c'mon.. Rey Mysterio as heavyweight champion? It'd do them well if they brought back the hardcore title as well, and stripped that sorry excuse for a wrestler, Edge, of any title he has or will ever have.
Even the female wrestlers have suffered a large downgrade. Now being referred to as "divas" that seem to only be around for their looks and an occasional match. While having to take off 90% of the clothes on live TV half the time. The Quarter Million Dollar Dive Search, is an insult to all of wrestling. And makes it look like all a woman has to do to get into wrestling is look good.
I think the WWE is sometimes insulting to one's intelligence as well. Such as the recent "who's the father of Stephanie's baby?" gimmick with Triple H. Degeneration X is a huge downgrade from what I remember of the old DX. And the WWE is keeping far too many wrestlers that are passing or well past their prime. While trying to promote those that are going nowhere, instead of those that could actually go somewhere.
Case in point: Carlito in a stupid Trish Stratus love story, that's about as fake as Vince's ring entrance walk. Randy Orton in some stalker-esque love story with the God awful Hulk Hogan's daughter. It's just stupid. I pray that the WWE will change their ways, and actually make RAW decent again. Because as it is now, I think I'm going to begin investing my two hours on Monday night to a different cause than the USA Network.
Lets see.. Hot guys, action, drama, good story lines...This show is DEFINATELY worth tuning into every week!! Lets see.. there are the ones you love,(Cena, DX) the ones you hate,(McMahons, Spirit Squad) the ones you "love to hate" (Edge, Lita)... you just need to tune in every week to see who is fighting each other, who is going to win a belt, who is going to lose the belt, what Cena will do next, What DX will do next..I would definately reccomend this to anyone...and lets not forget how awesome the pay per view are!!
*a side note*
The one wrestler I can not stand is Eugene and I am so grateful that I dont have to see him on Raw every week. I mean come on..Someone who gets paid to act mental and copies everone's moves. Come on get a clue!! Come up with somthing better than that!! It's so stupid!! I just cringe everytime I see him on there!! and for those of you that think he is sweet and love him...ummm...no further comments!!!
I like triple H Shawn Micheals Dx Edge John Cena the Rock Visera Kane Johnny Nitro and the spirt squad. Why did the Big Show have to go to ECW? At Summersalm John Cena could win the title. Hulk Hogan could possebly win against Randy Orton but Ortan could win with an rko.
Wrestling is what everyone refers to as being 'fake', but you can't tell me falling from a 20' ladder and going through a table doesn't hurt. It's one of those shows that at first leaves you in awe, or saying "Ow" and seemingly feeling the wrestlers pain, but if you look beyond the sweaty men (usually hot sweaty men) wrestling each other in spandex, you see the 'poetry in motion'. Wrestling is a soap opera, and being a girl, I guess that is what appeals to me most. Love triangles, as well as feuds. There are also some shocking elements to the storylines. (The whole Lita/Matt/Kane feud, was a little disturbing). Like any show, it has it's ups and downs.
WWE Monday Night RAW has entertained wrestling fans for over a decade and still seizes to amaze us all. Altough WWE is fake, it is a great show to watch either if it is the violence or the drama, it is still very good.
WWE is a very successful sports company. It is so extended, there had to be two WWE show brands. Both are very successful, but I find this one to be more entertaining. The two brands are RAW and Smackdown!. I always catch both, but still find RAW more entertaining then Smackdown!. Anyway, RAW stars many WWE athletes such as John Cena, Triple H, Shawn Micheals, Randy Orton, Edge, Trish Stratus, Carlito, and many, many more. My favorite is John Cena. The show is about enemies, teams, and titles. The show has 4 titles:
WWE Championship: Holder: EDGE
Intercontinental Championship: Holder: JOHNNY NITRO
World Tag Team Championships: Holders: THE SPIRIT SQUAD
WWE Women's Championship: Holder: MICKIE JAMES
The show has been on since 1993, but before was called RAW IS WAR. It is a great shiw to watch if you want violence, drama, ands even comedy. Please watch this show on USA at 9:00-11:00.
Raw is funny cause of DX, Shawn Micheals is cool really fuuny good wrestler, Triple H is a really good wrestler hes funny to, is cool.Melina is fine as hell she is the best girl on Raw. John Cena is cool, kinda of a posser, not a great rapper, funny. all together its a really cool show to watch
Getting better . . . . . . . It was bad before but it is back on track . DX really did good for W W E R A W ' s ratings. And good decisions like putting Randy Orton [ R K O ] on W W E R A W boost its ratings. W W E R A W i s getting better and better every episode. W W E R A W i s getting better and better every episode. W W E R A W i s getting better and better every episode. W W E R A W i s getting better and better every episode.
WWE Raw is the best wrestling show out. The Live uncensored wrestling is great. Better than Smackdown and the poorly funded ECW. Smackdown has equaly popular Superstars but Raw is much better because of all the fun and crazy stuff that happens like DX\'s return and them dumping feces on Mr.McMahon and the Spirt Squad. Or when they dumped slime all over the spirit squad. Raw is way better than ECW/Smackdown. ECW is poorly funded, a few superstars, the rest who knows? Who Cares! and Smackdown is ridicously censored. Thats why Raw is the best current wrestling show and why USA network is getting better and better, with these shows and MONK, PSHYC, THE 4400, and other great shows. USA is becoming a very big power house.

this show is awsome. so many reasons to enjoy.from the comedic actions of degeneration x or just the pure wrestling skills from athletes like john cena and randy orton. it is never a dull moment.their always excitment. a personal favotite wrestler of mine is shelton benjamin with both high flying ability and in ring skills.like every show thier is a bad guy. for the moment so far edge is the most hated.their are so much charcters with their own individual roles.like the monster kane, the rapper john cena and lets not forget everyones most favorite cheerleaders the spirit squad. this is a must see show
This show is funny. Dx and HBK and every body heels and faces. U dont have to be a wwe fan to like Raw. Smackdown Sucks but Raw is what made me like WWe. Vince is always getting what is coming to him and Tyhe matches are cool to. Only a few boring parts of this show (promos) but it is very good.However this show is good enough to be on NBC or network tv. Cable is not the best place for a show like this. But somehow every week USA and wwe finds a way to make it work. The best CABLE show on every Monday with teh expection of Monday Night Football in the winter.A must see
The return of Dx is great. I'm grad to see them back, even if it is only for the summer. What can I say, WWE is a great show, I love most of the story lines. The superstars are great. I can't wait to see what else DX has up the sleeves. But I wonder how they are going to top, what they did tonight. Covering Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, and the Spirit Squad in human feces was classic DX style. I also wonder if Edge or Cena are going to be able to being back the WWE Championship to Raw at Saturdays main event.
i like this show.it has great matches on their.it has some of my favorite wrestlers on there.such as randy orton,triple h,john cena,hbk,the one wrestler i hate on there is edge.they have real sexy divas on there too.so no wonder i like this show.

I think Raw is getting better w/ DX on it - I wish Kurt Angle would`ve nevr left Smackdown - he was great , and i think smackdown is the boring 1 , theyer losing all their good wrestlers lie : Orton , Angle and who else can the offored to lose ???? Rey mysterio , and lashley , booker - king booker , finlay , william rigal !!!!!!! I mean - c`mon get some better people !
I remember every Friday night at 10pm, rAW should show on either Sky Sports 1 or 3. I wouldn\\\'t miss an epsiode and would get angry if I did. Now it\\\'s gotten to predictible. There are too many spoilers are there that also gives sotrylines away such as the reformation of DX. DX was used years ago and played it\\\'s time and failed, just like the nWo came to an end but Vince tried to bring it back in the WWE! He needs to realise you can\\\'t bring something back that\\\'s dead and has no meaning. Well I\\\'m hoping this DX will be different with maybe a non-previous DX member which will maybe pull RAW up from the ground!
In 1997 Wwf (now Wwe) Raw is War (now Raw) was in its prime. Undertaker had the Ministry of Darkness. Shawn Michaels and Triple H had D-Generation X. The Rock had The Nation of Domination. Stone Cold, he just had beer. From here to 2000 were the golden years of Wwe Raw. Dx mocked the nation. Undertaker crucified Stone Cold. Stone Cold stunnered Vince McMahon and drank beer. Those were the days. Soon after it went downhill. Shawn Michaels was injured and Triple H became new leader of Dx and brought in X-Pac Road Dogg Jesse James and Bad Ass Billy Gunn (the New Age Outlaws). The Undertaker was injured thus ending the Ministry of Darkness. Stone Cold was hit by a car. The Rock went out on his own, which wasnt that bad. But as Wwe headed into 2002 it went to the crapper. It has regained some composier, but not all of it.
So this show is very intertaining....for some people. I know that when I frist started to watch wrestling I got obsess with it. I didn\'t want to do anything but come home and watch wrestling or play the video games. Now I could care less about it. Its not as fun as it was before. My mom loves it, and finds it very fun to watch, but me, yeah its boring now. I still watch it every now and then but its not the same.
WWE is one of the must watch show.Even tho it sometime looks fake, it is not as fake as Real World or ani other reality shows in MTV/VH8. Also this show is gettin really interesting, first of all this show is better then Friday Night SmackDown. Second is that ECW came back the show is just keep gettin interesting every week. Monday is just awesome. One of the cool part is HHH and HBK teamed up to summon the DX. Also ECW stole Cenas title which is now geting hunted by its original master. If WWE get canceled half of the world wouldnt be entertained enough.
WWE RAW is a personal favorite of mine because It's held by WWE! WWE is brilliant! It has divas, wrestlers, a funny announce team-everything you need for successful wrestling show. RAW is at the moment the most succesful wrestling show although rivaled by the other WWE show-Smackdown!
RAW has had some of the most memorable superstars in the history of wrestling-The Rock, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold and many, many more!!!This all makes it a great wrestling show! It is hosted by the RAW announce team- J.R(Jim Ross), Jerry the "King" Lawler and the Coach they're really funny and always lift the show on any occasion!
If you ask me I say WATCH it because it's one of the best wrestling shows out there!
I love Raw it is really good it always has twists and turns and different people! Since I started watching it I\'ve never missed it! Oh and John Cena is SO Hot!! Do not get me wrong I like Smackdown to but they don\'t have as many favored wrestlers except Rey Mysterio! I am so glad JBL and Rey had that match last Friday and now JBL is fired! Yeah I always hated him! Any way back to Raw, I HATE Mr. Mchman he is annoying and Shane diserved the sledge hammer to the face and same with The Spirit Squad I hate them to they are anoying!
Raw is not a serious wrestling sport. The gimmicks and whacky clown like behaviors of their wrestlers makes you want to laugh. They all have bizarre personalities and weird characters to play. Its just not serious wreslting. I can understand that \"real\"
Raw is not a serious wrestling sport. The gimmicks and whacky clown like behaviors of their wrestlers makes you want to laugh. They all have bizarre personalities and weird characters to play. Its just not serious wrestling. I can understand that "real" wrestling is not nearly as entertaining as "T.v show" wrestling but Raw takes it to the point where its ridicolous. However, even though it's a circus featuring the mentally insane it entertains none the less. The comedy when its not meant to be funny is funny and when it is meant to be funny it's really stupid but it still makes you giggle. Being planned out and fake hurts the show too. Wrestlers will do unrealistic moves in the ring. You can blantly see their the two wrestlers cooperating in the ring and working with each other to do impossible moves that cant be done realisticly just to make the match entertaining. Rey Mysterio is so fake its not funny but he doesnt count since he is currently on Smackdown. Raw also does repetitive storylines. Ex. Triple H(Bad guy)for world heavyweight championship. Triple H will hold on too that title for 3 months through miracles wins. He will always win through someone interfering, cheap shots, etc. and when he loses his title to a good guy he will start losing all his matches. Then the good guy who won the title will beat everyone fair and square and lose it too another bad guy. Then that bad guy will win all his matches through miracles just like Triple H and lose to a good guy. Sometimes Raw trys to change it up but for the most part thats how its done. Raw has definantly changed and lost alot of its luster. No more Rock, stone cold, dx, nothing. Its just a circus with repetitive storyline and some guy who defies god. Triple H is my favorite wrestler and Chris Masters is pretty cool but all thee other wrestlers are jokes with stupid characters. OMg! A bad review slapped right across Raw's face! Darn it! Not this way! Not this way!1...2...5.2/10
Raw is no longer half as entertaining as it used to be. That can be frustrating, as there is certainly some great talent on the show, but the awful writing and emphasis on cartoonish gimmicks/storylines hampers any real enjoyment. When WWE had real competiton in the States with WCW, the shows were snappier, and provided better matches on average. Today, many of the storylines are embarrasingly bad(anything involving McMahons on screen), and wrestling fans would be better served seeking out other places for their fix.
RAW is believed to be WWE at its finest. I agree fully. RAW is not only the best show in the WWE but in my eyes on TV next to my personal favorite, Family Guy. Many people do not even watch WWE and already have an opninion because it\'s \"fake\". But WWE fans know the real reason they watch. And it\'s not just to see men act a fight.
The reason I watch it is because to me it\'s like a soap-opera for males. The storylines include Family issues, love triangles, betrail, of course championships, bitterness toward another, and much much more. Although, some of these things may sound dumb, it is a reason to watch matches. It\'s brings an itensity and meaning to a match.
I know wrestling is fake indeed. However, the blood and brutality is real. I assure you the blood is not fake. Nor is most of the weapon shots such as chairs, ladders, tables, bells, hammers, screwdrivers, wooden sticks, and sinks. Not ECW but still cool.
One word, Divas. Raw showcases some of the most beautiful women such as Playboy girls Candice Michelle and Torrie Wilson, and others like Maria, Trish, ect. Seeing them fight is the greatest eye candy on TV.
RAW is the best there is, the best there was, and tyhe best there ever will be.
Once again since alot of my friends were talking about this show I thought I just had to check it out. I thought it was gonna be fake and unbelivable but to my suprise I found it really cool. The match between John Cena and Triple H was awesome and the other shows regulars are pretty good too. If you like sports and action then you should definatley tune in to watch this. I like Smackdown too but RAW is a classic and shows the best of the best in the matches. So I would choose RAW over Smackdown anyday.
When I first watched Raw it was during the Matt,Edge and Lita storyline.It was my first time watching wrestling so I was taken by first glance.
Now,Its been a few months.I have loss interest in Raw.I used to look forward to watching it but now its lost its luster.
I mean the Shawn Michaels/Mr.Mcmahon storyline has been done before.(Stone cold vs Mcmahon)I think if Raw gets some new material it will be more entertaining.Before we know it Raw may see its own destruction just like WCW.I doubt it will happen anytime soon but if things stay the same who knows.
I have been watching WWE since I was about 5 years old (18 years ago). My favourite time in WWE was the Attitude era with Stone Cold, Rock & DX. Those were the days. I do watch Raw religiously & its one thing I look forward to every single week. Not to mention the pay-per-views. My favourite all time wrestlers are: Bret Hart, Stone Cold, Rock, Triple H, Brock Lesner, the list could go on and on... I would have to say that at the moment Raw is a million times better than Smackdown is, probably because they have most of the old school wrestlers from my time such as Kane, Triple H, Edge, etc.. Love the storyline at the moment with Edge/Triple H/Cena. I would love to see Cena lose the title to either of the other competitors in this match.
wwe raw is one of the best show on tv,the reason I am saying this is because I am a very big wwe fan and I also think that raw is better than smackdown,not that smackdown isn't a good show it is but i just think that raw is better.I also know that the wwe is fake and scripted but I really don't care because it like watching a sitcom or movie you know it is fake but you still watch it for your entertainment.
It is okay but it is losing it entertainment. Tna is better.
Raw lost its power. But this all happen because smackdown took all raw best people. It still okay but not funny. Do not have that much action. But they still have it. It does not take a thing of what I said. It still a good show and nobody can not change it. Even I can not. But their are alot of fakeness and not amusing things on it. Like the one when Undertaker saw himself in the casket which was a dummy. It is still a good show.
