3 Things You Need To Know About Raw (6 Weeks Until Royal Rumble)

Via WWE.com

The WWE needs a Slammy Awards every week. By giving out awards, it meant the matches were shorter and not as boring as they have been with the 3-hour Raw shows. It doesn’t mean the awards were any good, except for maybe the award for match of the year since HHH came back with his short haircut and actually took it sort of seriously.

But really, here is all you need to know about the show in three short steps.

1. The Nature Boy is back!

The presenter for WWE Superstar of the Year was none other than the Nature Boy Ric Flair. Why did they bring him in unannounced? Who knows. Cena won the award via fan vote and gave it to Flair before CM Punk came out and they went into the ring together. Punk cheap shotted Flair with his crutch and Cena never came out to save him. But Flair poked him in the eyes and he was able to put the figure four on Paul Heyman which was fun. Then, the Shield came out and attacked Flair which brought out Daniel Bryan, Kane, and then Ryback and the three of them cleared the ring. Ryback and Kane put Flair on their shoulders.

Ryback also had a match against Antonio Cesaro, but after taking a bit of a beating, Cesaro walked to the back and was counted out.

2. Triple H teases that we haven’t seen the last of the Undertaker.

The Undertaker vs. Triple H match from WrestleMania beat John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar, John Cena vs. Rock at WrestleMania (hmmm), and Sheamus vs. Big Show at Hell In A Cell (hmm) to win Match of the Year. Either of the first two matches could’ve won it. Since Rock already won Comeback of the Year, I didn’t think he’d also win for his match with Cena. And he wasn’t there so it was probably for the best.

Random Wrestling Thoughts – The CreedDT

Every week I will try look at Raw, ECW, TNA, and Smackdown and give my thoughts. These are just my thoughts ladies and gentlemen, just my thoughts.

Random wrestling thoughts for the week of July 21, 2008:

Raw

  • After all the great work that Chris Jericho and Shawn Michaels did last night, the Raw show opens with Kane and his bag. Great, just great.
  • It appalls me how much JBL is pushed considering that with his back injury, he’s one of the worst wrestlers in the company. I know he can talk, but if when he gets in the ring, I want to fast forward, what good is that?
  • What a shitty opening segment.
  • Paul London is out to face Lance Cade. Where’s London’s big, huge bodyguard? Wait, that’s Brian Kendrick.
