This is episode 1,026 of Raw.
Last week's show is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/01/wwe-monday-night-raw-1142013-review.html
|"With the Rock being in San Jose tonight, I have banned him from the arena tonight. If he comes in, he will be arrested." - Vickie|
|"There's not a force on earth that's gonna stop The Rock from electrifying the people tonight." - The Rock|
|"He's alot like Manti T'eo. Instead of having an invisble girlfriend, he has an invisible nut sack." - Rock on Heyman, "His twinkie tits are scaring away the children." - Rock on Heyman|
Beat the Clock Challenge - Antonio Cesaro vs Randy Orton
|Wouldn't you not want to go with a headlock in this type of situation?|
They announced another Show vs ADR Last Man Standing Match at the Royal Rumble.
Big Show vs Zack Ryder
|"You gonna what me? You think I'm playing around?" - Show|
|"You stick with me kid, we'll make your dreams come true, we'll make you famous". - Heyman changing his thoughts on Brad Maddox|
Ryback vs Heath Slater
They announced Raw Roulette for next Monday! I LOVE RAW ROULETTE. Can't wait for that. You have to give it to WWE for making the Raw's seem more important lately.
CM Punk came out to talk:
He talked a lot about the title and The Rock. He said that the people didn't matter a few times and said he would win on Sunday. It was rather long, boring and pointless.
Beat the Clock Challenge Match - Dolph Ziggler vs The Miz
They have to finish in 11:36.
|Dr. Samson and Justin Roberts hugged|
Alicia Fox vs Kaitlyn
Beat the Clock Challenge Match - Sheamus vs Wade Barrett
|That describes my face perfectly|
Alberto Del Rio vs Tensai
They said Tensai was no walk over opponent, but I'd argue that as of late.
|"Nice belly to belly there." - King|
Bob Backlund got announced for the WWE Hall of Fame:
I don't know if I mentioned it before, but I don't care much about the Hall of Fame. It's brought out some strong debates but I see it as more of a WWE popularity club than an offical Hall of Fame.
|"That's the way to San Jose, right there." - John Cena|
Overall thoughts: I didn't like this show. It felt long and the commercials destroyed the matches.
