  • It's time to shake things up again!

    Lately the Raw brand has been fairly stagnant and boring, but this three hour special was a step in the correct direction. We all know that the draft means absolutely nothing as wrestlers compete on different shows all the time, but it is always interesting to see the first official matches for new competitors on their brands. Just a few random notes:

    - Tommy Dreamer needs to hang it up. His offense is "bowling shoe ugly" as Jim Ross would say.

    - Why has WWE soured on THE Brian Kendrick? Dude, deserves a shot at the top despite his marijuana problems.

    - Shane McMahon needs to step out of the spotlight. It's ridiculous to have him competing against top heels like Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes.moreless

    • Shane McMahon: (to Batista) I need not remind you that it was with malicious intent that Randy Orton tried to separate my head from my shoulders, just like he did you. But he also did it to my father and the physicality that he did to my sister is so reprehensible, I do not have, I do not have the words to describe what I want to do to Randy Orton. So if anybody's getting retribution tonight, Dave, it's me.

    • Triple H: Shane, you've gotta understand something here. The reason for all of this, all this stuff with Orton, everything's that gone down with your dad, with you, it's all because of me. Randy Orton trying to get to me. It's all my fault, Randy Orton trying to get to this (points to the WWE Championship belt). And here's the thing, Dave. With all due respect to you and everything that Orton has done to you and put you through, Randy Orton tried to take out my wife. He tried to take out the mother of my kids while I watched. This is all because of me. I started it and I am damn well gonna finish it. I'm not asking you, I'm telling you. Randy Orton is mine!

    • John Cena: Maybe you should think about going with just 'The All American'. Or if you really need something at the end, this one's pretty good, 'The All American Jackass.'
      Jack Swagger: Listen, Cena, I came here....
      John Cena: (cuts in) Hey, I don't care why you came here. I've seen you, you're good. But you're a punk kid with a couple of wins under his belt who likes to run his mouth. Welcome to Monday Night Raw. Tonight, you get a lesson in respect.

    • Beth Phoenix: Well hello Santino, my little canolli. I just came out here to let you know that I had a little conversation with Vicki Guerrero earlier tonight and there's more on the line in this match than a draft pick. You see, Santino, if The Great Kali beats you tonight, then your 'twin sister' Santina, better pucker up, because she's gonna be a guest on the Kali Kiss Cam next week!
