Welcome to another edition of A RAW Opinion, tonights show will obviously be centered around what happened last week when Raw went off the air, Brock Lesnar is advertised for tonights show. Sadly and unsurprisingly Dwayne is taking the week off, so YOUR WWE Champion will not be there tonight.
We start the show off with CM Punk heading to the ring Punk says that if Paul Heyman says that wasn’t him in the video he believes it, he continues talking until Booker T interrupts him. Booker says Vickie gave him the go ahead to come out there. Booker is giving the fans a chance to vote for who Punk takes on tonight, Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton or Chris Jericho. Booker butchered his promo and Punk called him drunk lol.
Ryback VS Antonio Cesaro is the first match of the night. Ryback gets the win in a competitive match, I’m glad they didn’t bury Cesaro here, but I do wish The Shield would have gotten involved as opposed to Cesaro losing clean.
Santonio Marella VS Jack Swagger up next. Thanks for comin, Santino, quick win for Swagger.
Alberto Del Rio VS Cody Rhodes is up next. Del Rio wins. Surprised Cody got as much offense as he did, I was expecting a squash.
Rey Mysterio VS Daniel Bryan up next. Daniel gets the win, after the match, MARK HENRY comes back! Daniel goes after him but gets taken out, Henry goes after Rey and beats him down a bit until Sin Cara comes out and gets destroyed. Henry delivers the Worlds Strongest Slam on Rey and finishes with a rip off of the Vader Bomb.
Sheamus VS Kane up next. Good match, Sheamus won with the Brogue Kick after Daniel Bryan distracted Kane, because Kane didn’t save Bryan from Mark Henry.
MizTV up next with Paul Heyman as his guest. Pretty lackluster segment until Brock Lesnar showed up, Miz shoved him and Lesnar beat his ass while Heyman sold it like crazy.
Randy Orton VS Wade Barrett. I actually fell asleep during this match, Randy Orton won though, no surprise.
CM Punk VS Chris Jericho next. Jericho won the fan voting to be in this match. CM Punk gets the win in a GREAT match. Jericho putting over the younger Punk again.
The next inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, Bruno Sammartino! LONG overdue, glad he said yes to Triple H.
Brad Maddox is in the ring and decides to call out The Shield instead of Cena. Maddox gets destroyed. John Cenas music hits afterward he starts entering from the crowd, Rybacks music hits next, he’s entering through the crowd, Sheamus’s music hits and he comes through the crowd, The Shield try to leave but the whole roster blocks them from leaving. The Shield is able to leave after a little brawl.
Overall, decent show, I would have liked to see more guys used, how are they putting on a 3 hour show and don’t even have Dolph Ziggler on the show?
I give this episode a 2.5/5 for an alright show, Lesnar, Heyman, Punk and Jericho saved this show tonight.
