All I have to say about tonight's show is-is Lilian Garcia the hottest woman on the planet or what? I don't speak Spanish, I don't particularly like the song she performed, but I couldn't take my eyes off her. Good God, as DDP used to say.
I work as a truck driver and didn't see any of the PPV reports, and tuned in tonight ready to see how Chris Jericho stole the show. I guess we'll have to wait until Cyber Sunday.
Nice entrance by HBK, saved an otherwise bland show. God, I wish Lilian lived next door so I could have her ignore me every day....
In case no one else has looked it up yet, I noticed that during the latest "save us 222" video, the phrase "rev_22:12" flashed on the screen.
In the Bible, Revelations 22:12 reads as follows:
"Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done."
So, forget about Jericho. My money's on SANTA CLAUS!
Raw tonight was OK.
Even though I'm not the biggest fan of Spanish pop music, I was happy Lilian got a chance to rock out. And I thoroughly enjoyed Marella's mockery of The Condemned. He makes me laugh every time I see him, and I'm sure he'll get a good pop when Steve Austin hits the obligatory Stunner on him.
The return of HBK was pretty nifty, even if he looked like a redneck drone as he walked toward the ring. I didn't see it coming. So I give that an A.
On the other hand, the entire Hornswoggle storyline was dumb. Vince (who likes Hornswoggle now?) wants Regal to take care of him. Regal doesn't know where he is. Vince comes back, and Hornswoggle comes out to everyone's surprise and taps Coach's leg with his cane. It wasn't funny. It didn't make sense. It was a waste of time.
The "shake your hand" ceremony was an equally dumb storyline. So Randy Orton is to come out and have his hand sincerely shaken by every single superstar who wants his title? Especially after belittling the entire roster? Just because he's a heel doesn't mean he has to be an idiot.
I was glad Umaga got some of his heat back, but did they really need to focus on Triple H for so long after the massacre? I don't think so. Nothing says "I'm more important than anyone else on the show" then seeing him still being catered away after the commercial break.
Most of the matches were just there. Other than Candice's semi-cool spot at the end of the match to win, the six-woman tag match was as bad as it gets. Snitsky's teeth aren't intimidating; they're just gross. And who ever thinks Val Venis is going to win? Both Kennedy and Hardy illicit huge pops, but I think they've had better matches. And the London/Kendrick vs. Highlanders was forgettable at the end of the day.
There were a few good things. A few bad things. It was a pretty mediocre Raw.
