  • A rather weak way to kick off "The Road to WrestleMania."

    This is the first Raw I watched since the horrific episode that took place on New Year's Day. And quite frankly, Raw is getting worse and worse and worse. Triple H is recovering from his 2nd quadriceps surgery, yet they have Shawn Michaels coming out with DX's music, along with crotch chops when he's a born-again Christian. They don't want to change him back to the Showstopper again because DX is their money making machines. That....is pathetic.

    Cryme Tyme losing to Haas and Benjamin was just about the smartest thing the "writers" did for the night.

    Melina and Maria was yet another waste of space on our TV sets. Those 2 are NOT the Fabulous Moolah and Sensational Sherri. Why can't Vince stop looking at their breasts and thighs for once in his life?

    Speaking of Vince, what was the whole point of that segment? Besides, when that money came raining down, the crowd was too....quiet. If money came raining down, one would expect a huge riot to take place. Something didn't look right when I saw that.

    Carlito and Super Crazy won tonight. It doesn't hide the fact that Carlito is not happy being a face. He's done nothing but make out with Torrie, while going nowhere on Raw. Poor guy.

    Of all of the talented wrestlers on the Raw roster that deserve some spotlight and a chance to be Intercontinental championship, they gave all of their chances to "The Great Khali?" I'm just glad he's not the champion because a lot of fans would be just as pissed when they deactivated the title to begin with.

    That Russian guy, Vladimir Koslov (or whatever the hell his name is), yet another waste of time. Though hearing him call the WWE "Double Double E" was hilarious.

    It's bad enough that the tag team division is dead, but to have Cena and Michaels (two SINGLES competitors) win them made it even worse. Oh well, at least the Undertaker making an appearance made up for it.

    Honestly, Raw is no longer the flagship of the WWE. SmackDown is. There is one thing that might save Raw: get McMahon away from it.moreless
