Next Week’s Raw To Be A “Throwaway” Show, Lilian Garcia Working On Album, Donald Trump Compared To Hulk Hogan

– WWE will turn back the clock this Monday on Raw as the program is being branded as an “old school” episode. Aside from the likely return of The Undertaker, the episode is being internally considered a throwaway show and undercard matches for WrestleMania will not start to take shape until at least the following week.

– WWE ring announcer and songstress Lilian Garcia revealed on Twitter Wednesday that she is in Nashville, Tennessee working on an upcoming album.

“Soooooooo excited my #LilRockers! Just got 2 Nashville 2 work w some amazing songwriters this wk! Writing songs 4 my new album!! #LoveMusic,” she wrote.

– Donald Trump appeared on the daytime talk show The Wendy Williams Show this morning with daughter Ivanka and did not mention his upcoming induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. During the appearance, Williams asked the Trumps what they have in common. Ivanka said they both enjoy real estate and golf. Donald said they both enjoy sex. Williams then remarked that Donald’s response was “Hulk Hogan creepy.”

  • Initializing….

    A MITB match is a good way to get lower-mid card wrestlers on Wrestlemania, but only if WWE listened to their fans(WWE Universe). The match should come back where it belongs !!

    • Brandon Sco??

      maybe if you Tout about it. hahahaha

    • GodsLoyalSon

      It’s not going to happen because the ppv does well enough to maintain the match

    • thedavidcain

      neither wwe or tna listen too the fans especially wwe that why do some dum**** after a good raw or impact

  • Benjamin

    “Throwaway show”? They can’t afford to do a throwaway show right now.

    Dear lord, and WWE sometimes wonders why they’re nowhere near the numbers they once pulled. They’re struggling to achieve normal viewership during the run-up to Wrestlemania, and their idea is to do a “throw-away show”.

    • Not a cop

      bro. But i agree with you.

    • Steve Demain

      But Rock-Cena II is all that matters, why bother building anything else for a FOUR HOUR SHOW?

  • Sisisi!

    A throwaway show so close to Wrestlemania, why?! I think I’m going to have the to watch the good segments of the last Raw again instead.

  • Las

    “Hulk Hogan Creepy” LOL

    • Clare McFadden

      While I cannot stand the sight of Donald Trump, unfortunately he is right. Hogan is creepy *SHUDDER* just the thought of the 24 inch pythons full of steroids makes me want to cower under my quilt in fear! Not to open an old can of worms here but Hogan nearly got Vince sent to Jail, remember? that is one of the reasons why I preferred watching Randy Savage when I was a kid and as I got older, it was Owen, Bret and Shawn and then my mother became a single parent and the SKY TV had to go so I missed the entire Attitude Era. I got back into it in 2004 and I am now on my way back out of watching wrestling!


    Consuela is back after buying more lemon pledge

    • Name

      And what exactly are your demands?

      • CONSUELA

        We need more lemon pledge

    • Kenneth Anderson Jr.

      Are you gonna feud with Jack Swagger?

      • CONSUELA

        No no no no

  • Brian Bird

    we have about 5 weeks 4 after Monday and wwe still doesn’t have a plan for wrestlemania

    • synkara

      they have a plan. they know exactly whats going to happen. they probably have ideas for Summerslam already. sescoops and fans are left completely in the dark and thats how it should be.

  • Seachai Chan

    Hope they bring back DX again.

  • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

    Why would they have a “throw away” show with their biggest pay-per-view of the year in just 6 weeks? I guess Mr. Mcmahon has enough that WrestleMania is going to go well with building up the matches on the shows.

    • Lord Spliffmeister

      In Vince’s eyes all he sees is Rock vs Cena 2 Punk vs Taker & Brock vs HHH. Those names alone guarantees his ass that big paycheck.

      Build up…..what 4?? <—Vince's thought process.

  • moody1

    Wow, Trump and Hogan are both really, really disgusting when it comes to their daughters.

  • Lord Spliffmeister

    w.e once Rocky leaves Brock will eventually win the title & set up Rock vs Brock 4 the title at WM30.Then we’ll c HHH vs either Punk or Cena cuz u know he always like being in the picture XD

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Who does? Hunter? Seriously?

    • sincaramystic

      those guys are in the picture because ratings and merchandise sales show the fans like having them in the picture. Even though HHH is related to Vince, if his big matches didn’t sell tickets he wouldn’t main event anything.

  • Brandon Sco??

    Since its throwback, maybe we’ll at least get to see a build towards Goldust vs Cody.

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    Man, they sure are relying on Rock/Cena 2 to carry the show. That’ll leave, what, 4 weeks of build up afterwards? I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see this show do lower numbers than last years (WM that is).

  • Stranger

    I wonder how many times each year they decide to put on a “throwaway show”. I imagine a lot.

  • Bully FU

    It might actually help their ratings and buy-rates if they built feuds for longer then just the 2 weeks leading up to a PPV. Some Wrestlemania feuds used to be teased as early as Survivor Series, start to develop at the Rumble, and culminate at Mania. Now with the Elimination Chamber the Wrestlemania Main Events aren’t even set up until the later part of February. They don’t need to bring in a bunch of old stars or celebrities to make Mania feel special and draw big they need to go back to making people care about feuds and anticipating finally seeing 2 people finally have a their match.

  • Joey Wilkerson

    So since it;s a throwaway, I guess it’s okay if we don’t watch it?

  • Rodriquez Antonio

    I hope this show won’t be a disappointment….but I won’t get my hopes up!

  • fatneal

    i dont get whats creepy about that…theyre both adults and they obviously have a great relationship…the media is a dangerous weapon man

    • Best Comment Advanced Dialogue

      It’s basically taboo for somebody to just say that out of the blue. “We both enjoy sex.” Ewww nigga, don’t say that again Trump

  • Bodacious Bob

    Vince McMahon is a throw away CEO.

  • Joe Hundley

    Half there shows are throwaway shows. Last week was decent though.That being said its all to predictable now.

  • AVPredator4985

    They have too long of a gap in between pay-per-views, so this “Old School” show will be fine. I’ll be enjoying the nostalgia and seeing the legends, and everybody who doesn’t like that can complain about it not being “important”. I just want to be entertained, and I’m sure I will be.

  • Justin TheeRatchet Dudek

    i hope ric flair shows up and breaks his hip..
