Last week's show is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/02/wwe-monday-night-raw-2182013-review.html
From now on, I should be able to cover all of Raw without any problems.
|"Ladies and Gentlemen, give it up for The Ultimate Fighter, Paul Heyman." - Vince McMahon|
|"I assure you that I am all man." - Paul Heyman|
Paul Heyman was called "The Ultimate Fighter" and said this would be a "one legged man in an ass kicking contest". He said," You have as much chance against me as Tony Romo does leading the Cowboys to the Super Bowl".
|Brock gets busted open|
|Brock Lesnar is bloody.|
Ryback vs Dolph Ziggler
|I don't know why there are so many pictures of Ryback's mouth.|
Donald Trump was announced for the WWE Hall of Fame.
The Great Khali vs Mark Henry
My only hope for this is that it is short.
We got a Fandango promo. It said Fandango premiere's this Friday on Smackdown.
MizTV with Zeb Coulter, Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger
Zeb Coulter said he didn't like the way Miz conducted the interview during the break and Swagger floored him.
Randy Orton vs Antonio Cesaro
Kane and DB talked in the back. DB said he could beat the Prime Time Players blindfolded. Kane said he could beat them with one hand tied behind his back. Brad Maddox and Vickie Guerrero of Team Brickie heard it and signed the match to those stipulations. Maddox kept repeating Vickie. DB said he wouldn't be able to see and Vickie said that's the point!
They signed The Miz vs Jack Swagger.
Sheamus' Oscar Snubs
R-Truth vs Cody Rhodes
Daniel Bryan and Kane vs The Prime Time Players
They had an awful commercial with a guy turning back his daughter Amanda's dates. There was a hippie and a greaser but of course he lets the guy in the WWE shirt come in. Note to anyone who would ever like to get a date, DO NOT WEAR A WWE SHIRT ON YOUR DATE.
The Shield came out.
They did a weird WWE Old School Promo for Raw next week showing some old guy doing disco, then cutting to a logo for the show.
Jack Swagger vs The Miz
Jack Swagger got the win with the Patriot Act. I liked Jack's ankle lock and I liked how Miz somehow caught himself in the ropes. The match wasn't bad at all and it looks like Swagger will not punished for his DUI which is amazing.
Winner fights The Rock at Wrestlemania XXX - John Cena vs The Rock
Overall thoughts: The show had some clear ups and downs. The main and the opener were very good but the Team Hell No tag was awful booking wise. However, there was alot more good than bad here and this is worth a look.
