WWE RAW Reaction (11/11): The “YES!” & The “NO!”

Hey everybody, I’m Noah Mark (from “SEScoops Live” fame) and we’re introducing a new feature here on SEScoops.com where we’ll be looking at the best and worst moments of WWE RAW each week. We’ve settled on a new name for the feature: WWE RAW Reaction: The “YES!” & The “NO!” ..

Comment below and let us know if you agree with our picks.

Complete WWE RAW Results (11/11) from England – With VIDEOS

WWE RAW (11/11): The “YES!”

The Usos, Rhodes Brothers , Daniel Bryan and CM Punk.

The Main Event

WWE put on a hot main event in Manchester that ended with an even hotter brawl (and another interesting scenario, which you’ll read about below) that showcased some of WWE’s top rising stars.

It’s good to see Daniel Bryan back in the main event picture this week, albeit a tag team match. Barring most fan’s frustration on his demotion back to the mid-card. Punk and Bryan is a must-see combination and there are fresh tag team feuds they can have with The Shield, The Wyatts, The Real Americans and others.

The Wyatt Family’s involvement and along with the USO’s and Rhodes brothers save at the end was an awesome way for Raw to go off the air and another demonstration of England having some of the best WWE crowds in the world.

The Shield & The Wyatts tease a battle.

The Shield / Wyatt’s Tease

During The Shield’s match against Daniel Bryan, the light went out and the Wyatts appeared in the ring out of nowhere.

Punk & Bryan pushed The Shield towards the Wyatts, which led to a “holy sh*t” moment with the two heel trios going at it – before they decided it was a better idea to join forces and focus their attention on the former WWE Champions outside of the ring.

Even though it was just a tease – fans have long wondered what would happen when these two forces collided. When WWE eventually pulls the trigger on a 6-man tag match between The Shield and the Wyatt Family, it’s sure to be explosive.  Those six men represent the future of the WWE.


Antonio Cesaro sets up John Cena.

John Cena Vs The Real Americans

Earlier in the week John Cena heavily praised Antonio Cesaro (Video) at the end of a WWE live event and presented him with the World Heavyweight championship, saying he was going to be a major star. On RAW, Cena would wrestle both Cesaro and Jack Swagger in a 2 on 1 handicap match.

Cesaro looked great as usual and it was good to see him & Swagger working with WWE’s top superstar.

Even though this was a non-traditional match, WWE continues to feature the tag team division in a prominent way – which is a very good thing.


WWE RAW (11/11): The “NO!”

Corporate Kane ineffective in his second week on the job.

Corporate Kane ineffective in his second week on the job.

Brad Maddox, Vicki Guerrero , & Kane

Kane is now the Director of Operations – so they might as well give him a new name or at least give him some new theme music. Because it just seems incomplete if you’re using the theme and video and not setting of an explosion.

Kane’s authority being questioned by Vicki Guerrero and Brad Maddox is bizarre, and being yelled backstage at by Randy Orton made Kane look weak.

Aside from Triple H and Stephanie, we’ve now got 3 other people with authority on RAW – and it’s just way too much.

Brad Maddox is a waste of space. The whole segment was sloppy and boring – WWE should really consider consolidating power. If Kane is now the Director of Operations, give Vickie and Brad new roles. As for Kane, his new Corporate gimmick is weak at best. Considering his incredible career, this new gimmick should have made a much bigger impact than it has had thus far.


The Big Show "Surprises" everyone at Raw.

The Big Show’s “Surprise” Appearance

Another surprise by the Big Show. Big Show is locked in to the WWE title picture for at least another two weeks, so we’re

Maybe one day they will announce he WILL be there, and will not show up.

Santino Marella & Los Matadores vs The Union Jacks

The Los Matadores vs. 3MB feud continues.

I did find their Union Jack outfit amusing, but the amusement quickly wore off and I realized they were still in fact, 3MB



  • Initializing….

    WWE want to hold a pay per view over here in the UK in the future, hell even Wrestlemania!!! , 90,000 fans if they sell out Wembley stadium

    • WCWJobber

      WrestleMania will never ever be held in the UK .

    • mrchopper

      Jobber’s right – it’s never gonna happen. WM is soooo American it’s never going to be held out of the country, or at least not for the foreseeable future. The issue is that they’d probably have to create a brand new throwaway PPV just for us (like Insurrexion or Rebellion) and nobody would give a sh*t about it apart from the Brits.

      • jim

        It’s been held out of the country twice. 6 and 18 in Toronto.

        • the_unknown

          Canada & the US are in the same time zone though

      • Initializing….

        Maybe not Wrestlemania , but test the water with a smaller PPV like MITB or The closest PPV when they are over here in the UK

    • Bam Bam

      Problem is there will be spoilers for Wrestlemania if it’s held in the UK. So less ppl would buy it until they read the spoilers and if they didn’t like it then WWE would lose a ton of money on their biggest event of the year.

      • Aperture

        I think people were going to read the spoilers anyways. I believe that the UK deserves a Wrestlemania. They had Summerslam there in 1992. Summerslam and Wrestlemania are parallel to each other on a popularity and mainstream scale. There would be the same amount of TV viewers if they went to the UK. Maybe, the UK would give them better praise and make Wrestlemania more special if they do what they did this week on Monday.

        • Bam Bam

          True but in 1992 we didn’t have all these dirt sheets to read any of the spoilers but I think it would be interesting to see Wrestlemania in the UK the croad would be awesome.

          • Aperture

            I think that is another problem that WWE faces. The dire sheets. They need to prevent ANYTHING that will hurt their PPV buys inside of the company. Although it is better on us financially, they have to protect their product or else casual fans will just cease to watch the matches in general. Hardcore fans will order no matter what.

          • Bam Bam

            Yeah that’s true I’ve watched wrestling since I was like 7 and started in the Attitude era and I don’t order all the PPV’s but watch Raw every monday tho if it starts to sux real bad I’ll change the channel and come back to it to see how it’s doin. I do that to other wrestling shows. I watch other wrestling than WWE Daddy got me into wrestling and now I gots to have my stories so to speak lol

      • Craig DeBoard

        Agreed. A lot of people don’t understand the concept of a “time zone difference”.

    • Andrew Campbell

      They wouldn’t fill half of Wembley. In the Attitude Era, yes. But today WWE is nowhere near as popular as it once was over here.

      • Craig DeBoard

        You’re wrong. England’s wrestling fan base is far stronger. Hell, what American dirt sheets (like this site) don’t tell you is that there was even a point where even TNA was close to WWE ratings wise. The wrestling fanbase is just as rabid as it ever was over there.

        But I do agree, it will never happen. Time zone differences create internet spoilers.

  • butterpecs

    Noah Mark and Solomonster always give quality content, so this is welcome.

    • Aperture

      I agree. Keep it up Noah!

      • butterpecs

        Nice avatar!

        • Aperture


  • 8 year old boy

    Man it’s going to feel weird next week with a quiet crowd.

    • Bam Bam

      You don’t know if it’s gonna be quiet or not next week. It might be really loud with Raw doing the Country theme and it’s gonna be in Nashville, Tennessee the crowd it probably gonna be pretty good..

  • A Realist

    So, are we copying the Prowrestling.net formula now?

    • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

      No copying, we first titled it “Best and Worst of RAW” and apparently another site has that name .. Not familiar with the site you named, but Noah Mark knows his stuff and will make this a great feature here

      • A Realist

        Dig it. I like the format, and summation of the show. But this is exactly what they do.

        • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

          It is a somewhat ‘generic’ feature .. Lots of sites do RAW results, ppv results, etc.. Now we’re putting our spin on it

        • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

          Any suggestions for what we should title the article? “Best / Worst of” and “Hits/Misses” are apparently used by other sites … ?

          • A Realist

            “Raw Round-Up”, “The Good, The Bad, The Ugly”, “The SESummary”?

          • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

            The Awesome and the Awful?…ok I was just thinking of The Miz when I thought of that title lol…xD…(edit: nevermind, title’s been changed already)…xD

          • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

            Jamie, did you get our email?

          • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

            ahh yes I did!…my idiot self kept forgetting to reply (and at the same time was trying to decide whether to go for it lol)…just going to reply now…=)

        • Jay Strongbow

          Oh shut up. Every other sport has 5 networks doing the same thing. Quit acting like the idea was original within the last 20 years.

          • A Realist

            Is it a prerequisite that every wrestling fan has to be some backwoods, inbred d-bag to everyone they encounter?

          • X

            You would know something about being a ‘d-bag’. Quit being a pompous ‘A Hole’ to other people, and you might have better encounters.

          • A Realist

            You know, I know you like to think you’ve left this indelible impression on me– but you seem to think about me a LOT more than I think of you. It seems I can’t make a single comment without you having some sort of reply. And yet, I’m going to continue carrying on being the way I am. So, you can either continue wasting your time……or……piss off. Either way, your words hold no weight with me, sunshine.

          • X

            My words weigh just fine, or else you would have just ignored me. Phony.

            As for this: (“It seems I can’t make a single comment without you having some sort of reply”) ……You are a liar, or can’t count.
            My impression on you is correct. I believe you are an A-Hole who is full of himself. Period. Learn how to take criticism like a man without being defensive. Nothing else for me to tell you.

          • A Realist

            For someone who acts like a b itch more often than not, you telling me to act like a man is laughable.

            You don’t even know what you’re talking about, so why am I entertaining this?

      • Aperture

        Bleacher Report does “The Best and Worst of Raw”. The writers separate them whenever it is needed.

        • David

          It’s not BR. It’s UPROXX/With Leather.

          • Aperture

            If I remember, Bleacher Report does “The Worst of Raw” and “Winners and Losers of Raw”.I never heard of UPROXX/With Leather. So I will take your word for it..

    • pwnez

      Yeah but westlezone and bleacher report do the same thing. Best and worst of the week.

      • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

        Did you get our email?

    • Ninjastar

      who cares what this site does, im staying loyal to it .

  • VIN

    I don’t care for corporate Kane. This whole angle already stinks and bores the helll out of me. That’s what happens when it’s not thought out in advance. It looks like a jumbled up mess of sh#t. The Shield looks to be protecting Orton, and doing HHH’s dirty work. Then they claim this past Monday that they work for nobody. Lmao… Then Dean Ambrose rubs Orton’s shoulder and tells him to get well. What a corny jumbled up mess this angle is. Nothing makes sense. You can tell they are writing this sh#t garbage days if not hours prior to the show. It never used to be that way, but you can tell they come up with this crap hours before show time. And from what I’ve heard about WWE these past few years, I’m actually right. Switching angles, matches , game plans just hours and minutes before show time, and even changing it up during the show. Just like WCW did back in 1999 and 2000. I don’t know if this is true or not, but I heard John Cena was set to go heel at Summer Slam 2011. When Stephanie was shown coming out of his locker room, nothing came about of it. I heard that was because Vince canned the idea last minute during the show out of fear.
    Here’s one thing that annoys me if HHH and Stephanie are in absolute control, what is the point of having ‘GM’s anymore? And Brad Maddox being a so called ‘waste of space.’ I don’t even know why he’s still there. The dude does absolutely nothing! Why does he still have a power role? And anybody else tired of 3MB vs. Los Matadores. This has to be their 10th match on live TV in less than a month. Enough is enough. Now I just flip the channel whenever Los Matadores come on. I flipped the channel a lot this past Monday in fact. I even took a dump during Kingston/Sandow. I knew I wouldn’t miss anything important. Bad show overall anyway.

  • Jeremy-County Roberts

    Brad got a good pop last night. Not sure if he is over………….or if the UK fans just love to be loud.

  • Jack
    • Craig DeBoard

      Thumbed it down just because it’s too soon for Roman. Give him another ten years though to become his own person rather than a character from a script. The guy has only been in the business for a few short years, but he definitely has that “it” factor and star quality about him.

  • Dixie Carter

    Vince better get ready because I am going to buy WWE when TNA the #1 wrestling company in Antarctica takes them out in the ratings and Vince folds. We are already doing 5.0ratings on Spike TV but these dirt sheets report fake ratings to make us look bad.

  • MachoBeard

    This seems like a lazy version of what the Best & Worst guys at Upproxx are already doing

  • 10YearOldBoy

    Bye bye english crowd.

  • raven

    totally disagree with the Maddox part, the dude is hilarious and odd. MUCH better than Vikki.
    totally agree with the Kane thing…it’s just fallen flat to me. I don’t think he looked weak tho he put everyone in their place to end the segments
    totally disagree with shield/wyatt it’s jumbled now but that just means you can pull out 3-4 different fresh exciting feuds

  • Craig DeBoard

    I’ve never been a Big Show fan but I disagree here. Starting the show off with Big Show coming out and chokeslamming Orton through the table (the height on that chokeslam was awesome by the way), was awesome. I don’t care for Big Show but this was a great way to start the show strong. Don’t expect to see it happen again for a very long time.

    The Big Show/Orton/Triple H issue itself though is flat out unentertaining.
