WWE RAW (11/25): The "NO!"

Randy Orton, The Authority & Super Cena [caption id="attachment_91830" align="alignright" width="266"]Set your watch, John Cena becomes WWE Champion December 15th Set your watch, John Cena becomes WWE Unified Champion December 15th at the TLC Pay-Per-View.[/caption] We kick off Raw with a Randy Orton "I told you so" promo. He invites Triple H and Stephanie McMahon to the ring to gloat. They shoot back with, we knew you had it in you, but you needed to find it in yourself. The crowd breaks out into both Daniel Bryan and Yes! chants. Being there live, I chanted right along. That's who I want, that's who the crowd wants. Even for the fourth time in a row Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton would have been a much better match than Big Show vs Randy Orton. Although I will say, if they did in fact screw over Bryan for the forth time, I think that would have been worse than what we witnessed with The Big Show, so I'll concede, that I'm happy that didn't occur. Out pops John Cena. He's the World Heavyweight Champion, a title that's been around for 11 years, but now that Cena holds it, albeit it not the first time, he wants to know who the true champion is. Triple H makes the match at TLC in December a TLC match with both titles on the line. I will say that ladder matches, last man standing matches, and I quit matches for me are a bit more exciting, especially live, because of the added unpredictability, and seemingly "guaranteed" way a match will be won. (i.e. someone will have to grab a title).  So maybe this wont be all that bad. Altough I'm calling it now, John Cena grabs the WWE Championship, Randy Orton grabs the WHC, and your face of the company, has the "correct belt".   [caption id="attachment_91827" align="alignright" width="266"]Michael Strahan isn't mad, and everyone takes a curtain call, yay! Michael Strahan isn't mad, and everyone takes a curtain call, yay![/caption] Michael Strahan I'll preface this by saying I'm not a football fan. I know that Michael Strahan is a former NY Giant, and beloved by NY. Although I wouldn't say he received a "Bow down to the man" hero's welcome. The Miz introduces Michael, except it's Titus O'Neil dressed in a suit with a imitation gap on his teeth. Problem with this live in the arena, is that at first we couldn't see for sure it was Titus on the screen, since they were showing Strahan's entrance video. The younger fans who have no clue who Michael Strahan is, didn't realize it wasn't him, while the older fans, could care less. So no real heel heat, no excitement. This segment went painfully long. When Strahan finally does come out, there's a lot of back and forth between him The Miz and Titus, with Strahan also announcing the Raw main event of John Cena and The Big Show vs Alberto Del Rio and Randy Orton. I hate it when a guest host announces wrestlers names, in an affected ring announcer voice. The payoff for this segment came when, The Miz challenges Michael Strahan to take a hip toss. After several failed attempts from both The Miz and Titus O'Neil. Michael Strahan ends up hip tossing both men. Now back in the day, this would be where the crowd celebrates, and the heels run out and go to the back, with mean mug looks on their faces. However, we are in the family friendly PG era, so instead it's all a bit, and everyone hugs and his happy at the end, barf. [caption id="attachment_91838" align="alignright" width="266"]Two 14 Diva's Elimination Matches in two days. Two 14 Diva's Elimination Matches in two days.[/caption] Diva Survivor Series Rematch Not that anyone actually purchased The Survivor Series for the Diva's Survivor Series Elimination match, but, here it is for free the next night on raw. They spared the entrance on TV, which probably was the best part of this match. AJ Lee is far better than this on the Mic and in the ring. I'm begging for a serious program between her and Natalya or anyone for that matter. I guess I should be happy it wasn't another musical chair segment.  So within eight minutes, most of the Diva's are eliminated, and I'm sure we'll see this tie in with another episode of Total Diva's. Which I will admit, I do watch and enjoy. More than what I saw here, for sure.   Honorable Mentions • XAVIER WOODS vs Heath Slater (YES!) - Last week Xavier joined in R-Truth's gimmick, this week he became a Funk. If he changes each week, it's a YES! However, if they simply switched him permanently to work with the The Funkadactyls, then it's a NO!

Help! I'm in a time warp and I can't get out of it. Alberto Del Rio can't beat Cena, but I'm forced to watch him tap out or be pinned by him over and over again.

WWE RAW (11/25): The "YES!"

Daniel Bryan & CM Punk vs The Wyatts [caption id="attachment_91826" align="alignright" width="266"]Daniel Bryan & CM Punk cut a promo before facing The Waytts Daniel Bryan & CM Punk cut a promo before facing The Wyatts[/caption]   The obligatory rematch between The Wyatts and Daniel Bryan & CM Punk, took place on Raw. First a promo from "The Beard & The Best" CM Punk discussing team names, and asking questions allowing Daniel Bryan to answer them with a "Yes!".  Daniel Bryan got a chance to say more than just the three letter word that will follow him for the rest of his career. I love Daniel Bryan, and so does the crowd. In fact you could hear Daniel Bryan chants during the opening segment, proving once again that this demotion was not "Best For Business" But more on that in the "NO!" section. Any match can be enhanced with the crowd behind you. When you have top stars like CM Punk and Daniel Bryan, the two most over Superstars at Raw, it can add just that little more energy to the match. CM Punk made a comment about Triple H and the authority in the opening promo, and wouldn't know it after Daniel Bryan was "Kidnapped" by the Wyatts. CM Punk was laid out by The Shield.  I wonder if that marks the end of Daniel Bryan and CM Punk together, because I was enjoying that. Time will tell. [caption id="attachment_91825" align="alignright" width="266"]Who would have thought Golddust would be having great matches alongside his brother in 2013 Who would have thought Goldust would be having great matches alongside his brother in 2013![/caption] The Shield vs The Rhodes and Rey Mysterio  I have never been a fan of Tag Teams growing up watching the WWE. I must say however, though all the missteps, and bad booking since SummerSlam, The WWE has a great tag team division. This, of course includes The Shield and The Wyatt factions. Day in and day out these teams from The Veteran Golddust, to newer WWE talent in The Shield and The USO's, are having great matches. I am thoroughly enjoying watching these teams work.   [caption id="attachment_91828" align="alignright" width="266"]The Kosher Butcher!

When asked if he were to be a WWE Superstar, what would his name be. Charlie was prepared, with a blue T-shirt and a great gimmick "The Kosher Butcher" He even went as far to come up with his finisher, The Circumcision! At first the crowd didn't know what to make of this.  Not sure if this was shown on TV, but The Kosher Butcher had at least a dozen of his friends and family at Raw, all wearing their Blue shirts! Great stuff. Half way during the Xavier Woods match, and some further thought, the crowd broke out into chants of  both "Kosher Butcher" and "Circumcision", add that to the list of most bizarre Raw chants. Great Stuff.     Hit up Page 2 below for the "NO!" of this week's WWE RAW:

WWE RAW (11/25): The "YES!"

Daniel Bryan & CM Punk vs The Wyatts [caption id="attachment_91826" align="alignright" width="266"]Daniel Bryan & CM Punk cut a promo before facing The Waytts Daniel Bryan & CM Punk cut a promo before facing The Wyatts[/caption]   The obligatory rematch between The Wyatts and Daniel Bryan & CM Punk, took place on Raw. First a promo from "The Beard & The Best" CM Punk discussing team names, and asking questions allowing Daniel Bryan to answer them with a "Yes!".  Daniel Bryan got a chance to say more than just the three letter word that will follow him for the rest of his career. I love Daniel Bryan, and so does the crowd. In fact you could hear Daniel Bryan chants during the opening segment, proving once again that this demotion was not "Best For Business" But more on that in the "NO!" section. Any match can be enhanced with the crowd behind you. When you have top stars like CM Punk and Daniel Bryan, the two most over Superstars at Raw, it can add just that little more energy to the match. CM Punk made a comment about Triple H and the authority in the opening promo, and wouldn't know it after Daniel Bryan was "Kidnapped" by the Wyatts. CM Punk was laid out by The Shield.  I wonder if that marks the end of Daniel Bryan and CM Punk together, because I was enjoying that. Time will tell. [caption id="attachment_91825" align="alignright" width="266"]Who would have thought Golddust would be having great matches alongside his brother in 2013 Who would have thought Goldust would be having great matches alongside his brother in 2013![/caption] The Shield vs The Rhodes and Rey Mysterio  I have never been a fan of Tag Teams growing up watching the WWE. I must say however, though all the missteps, and bad booking since SummerSlam, The WWE has a great tag team division. This, of course includes The Shield and The Wyatt factions. Day in and day out these teams from The Veteran Golddust, to newer WWE talent in The Shield and The USO's, are having great matches. I am thoroughly enjoying watching these teams work.   [caption id="attachment_91828" align="alignright" width="266"]The Kosher Butcher! The Kosher Butcher![/caption] The Kosher Butcher Superstars for Sandy Relief Auction winner, " Charlie Tebele was interviewed by Jerry "The King" Lawler. When asked if he were to be a WWE Superstar, what would his name be. Charlie was prepared, with a blue T-shirt and a great gimmick "The Kosher Butcher" He even went as far to come up with his finisher, The Circumcision! At first the crowd didn't know what to make of this.  Not sure if this was shown on TV, but The Kosher Butcher had at least a dozen of his friends and family at Raw, all wearing their Blue shirts! Great stuff. Half way during the Xavier Woods match, and some further thought, the crowd broke out into chants of  both "Kosher Butcher" and "Circumcision", add that to the list of most bizarre Raw chants. Great Stuff.     Hit up Page 2 below for the "NO!" of this week's WWE RAW:

WWE RAW (11/25): The "NO!"

Randy Orton, The Authority & Super Cena [caption id="attachment_91830" align="alignright" width="266"]Set your watch, John Cena becomes WWE Champion December 15th Set your watch, John Cena becomes WWE Unified Champion December 15th at the TLC Pay-Per-View.[/caption] We kick off Raw with a Randy Orton "I told you so" promo. He invites Triple H and Stephanie McMahon to the ring to gloat. They shoot back with, we knew you had it in you, but you needed to find it in yourself. The crowd breaks out into both Daniel Bryan and Yes! chants. Being there live, I chanted right along. That's who I want, that's who the crowd wants. Even for the fourth time in a row Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton would have been a much better match than Big Show vs Randy Orton. Although I will say, if they did in fact screw over Bryan for the forth time, I think that would have been worse than what we witnessed with The Big Show, so I'll concede, that I'm happy that didn't occur. Out pops John Cena. He's the World Heavyweight Champion, a title that's been around for 11 years, but now that Cena holds it, albeit it not the first time, he wants to know who the true champion is. Triple H makes the match at TLC in December a TLC match with both titles on the line. I will say that ladder matches, last man standing matches, and I quit matches for me are a bit more exciting, especially live, because of the added unpredictability, and seemingly "guaranteed" way a match will be won. (i.e. someone will have to grab a title).  So maybe this wont be all that bad. Altough I'm calling it now, John Cena grabs the WWE Championship, Randy Orton grabs the WHC, and your face of the company, has the "correct belt".   [caption id="attachment_91827" align="alignright" width="266"]Michael Strahan isn't mad, and everyone takes a curtain call, yay! Michael Strahan isn't mad, and everyone takes a curtain call, yay![/caption] Michael Strahan I'll preface this by saying I'm not a football fan. I know that Michael Strahan is a former NY Giant, and beloved by NY. Although I wouldn't say he received a "Bow down to the man" hero's welcome. The Miz introduces Michael, except it's Titus O'Neil dressed in a suit with a imitation gap on his teeth. Problem with this live in the arena, is that at first we couldn't see for sure it was Titus on the screen, since they were showing Strahan's entrance video. The younger fans who have no clue who Michael Strahan is, didn't realize it wasn't him, while the older fans, could care less. So no real heel heat, no excitement. This segment went painfully long. When Strahan finally does come out, there's a lot of back and forth between him The Miz and Titus, with Strahan also announcing the Raw main event of John Cena and The Big Show vs Alberto Del Rio and Randy Orton. I hate it when a guest host announces wrestlers names, in an affected ring announcer voice. The payoff for this segment came when, The Miz challenges Michael Strahan to take a hip toss. After several failed attempts from both The Miz and Titus O'Neil. Michael Strahan ends up hip tossing both men. Now back in the day, this would be where the crowd celebrates, and the heels run out and go to the back, with mean mug looks on their faces. However, we are in the family friendly PG era, so instead it's all a bit, and everyone hugs and his happy at the end, barf. [caption id="attachment_91838" align="alignright" width="266"]Two 14 Diva's Elimination Matches in two days. Two 14 Diva's Elimination Matches in two days.[/caption] Diva Survivor Series Rematch Not that anyone actually purchased The Survivor Series for the Diva's Survivor Series Elimination match, but, here it is for free the next night on raw. They spared the entrance on TV, which probably was the best part of this match. AJ Lee is far better than this on the Mic and in the ring. I'm begging for a serious program between her and Natalya or anyone for that matter. I guess I should be happy it wasn't another musical chair segment.  So within eight minutes, most of the Diva's are eliminated, and I'm sure we'll see this tie in with another episode of Total Diva's. Which I will admit, I do watch and enjoy. More than what I saw here, for sure.   Honorable Mentions • XAVIER WOODS vs Heath Slater (YES!) - Last week Xavier joined in R-Truth's gimmick, this week he became a Funk. If he changes each week, it's a YES! However, if they simply switched him permanently to work with the The Funkadactyls, then it's a NO! [caption id="attachment_91846" align="alignright" width="266"]Dolph Dolph Ziggler, perhaps digging his grave further by wearing Zack Ryder's shirt in Long Island.[/caption] • Dolph Ziggler vs Damien Sandow Hamptons Hardcore Match (NO!) - Second week in a row, and I could care less. Ziggler giving a shout out to Zack Ryder by wearing his T-Shirt on Raw. I wonder who's going to wear a Ziggler shirt next week on Raw. • John Cena & Big Show vs Alberto Del Rio & Randy Orton (NO!) Help! I'm in a time warp and I can't get out of it. Alberto Del Rio can't beat Cena, but I'm forced to watch him tap out or be pinned by him over and over again. Big show at the end now with a concussion scare.
