I have no idea what went wrong this week. I thought I would have a big rant ready for the TNA Impact review with the court hearing when it airs on 3/3/11, but there was something that happened tonight on RAW that really ruined most of the show for me. There is really nothing to be said about this show from a wrestling standpoint. Out of all of the RAWs I reviewed since I started watching WWE again full time in December, this has to be the absolute worst of them and a really abysmal effort on WWE's fault. I feel sorry for the fans who paid money for tickets to see this dog of a show.
Anyway, the 2/28/11 RAW Rundown.
-The Triple H fifteen minute promo of death returns to RAW. Then Sheamus gets buried deep beneath the earth when he tries to attack Triple H but fails in the most spectacular manner possible, and gets Pedigreed through the table. Sheamus might be future endeavored pretty soon given the heat he has from that Bugs Bunny looking mfer(tm James. E Cornette, all rights reserved), Kevin Dunn(WWE Production Head and long time WWE Staff member). Triple H and the Undertaker is on for Wrestlemania 27.
-Evan Bourne returned and beat Sheamus in a minute.
-Michael Cole accepts Jerry Lawler's challenge for a match at Wrestlemania, providing that he has his trainer in his corner and also names a referee. Jack Swagger is the trainer and he beats up Lawler, before putting him in the Ankle Lock as Cole taunts Lawler.
-Stone Cold Steve Austin returns next week. Yeah. Or rather oh hell yeah!
-Randy Orton pinned Michael McGuillicutty and punted him all the way back down to Florida after the match.
-The Miz and John Cena had a segment that was full of gay jokes and toilet humor. This is your main event on the biggest show of the year.
-A Bella won the divas battle royal after she switched with the other Bella. Leading to the Bellas against Eve Torres for the Diva's Championship.
-The Rock did a promo. It was not as good as the one two weeks ago. It was better than ninety percent of this show.
-Daniel Bryan is attacked by the Miz before his match against an opponent not named and laid out. This leads to Alex Riley against John Cena in a Cage Match with an hour's build. Cena wins despite the Miz interfering. As a result Alex Riley is fired as Miz's lackey. Had Riley won(as if), Cena would have to declare that the Miz is awesome. Miz laid out Cena.
What I Liked.
“Randall Keith Orton, don't you dare punt that man in the head!” CM Punk acting like a stern father, before Orton tried to punt McGuillicutty in the head, was greatness. Charles Montgomery Punk has been quite epic in this feud.
The Rock was decent enough, although, not as good as two weeks ago.
-Cage Match was alright, although the Cage Match doesn't mean anything any more and it used to be one of the more epic matches.
-The Diva's Battle Royal was short enough not to be offensive. Obviously if these women got thrown over the top rope, there would be some fatalities. Dropping from the apron might be rolling the dice with fate.
-Its going to be glorious when Michael Cole gets his against Jerry Lawler.
-Shawn Michaels giving a proper was good, really adds some interest to this Triple H/Undertaker match.
-Evan Bourne returning was good although poor, poor Sheamus.
What I Didn't Like
-Poor, poor Sheamus.
-I have no idea what that Cena/Miz segment was but its not going to really draw interest for the Mania main event. I'm not going to take the moral highground about gay jokes, but WWE does tend to use it as a crutch. Its the standard response from two third graders bickering on the school playground with about the same level of insults. This is a Wrestlemania main event match and its not getting the proper respect it deserves.
-Poor, poor Sheamus.
-Teasing me with a Daniel Bryan match and not delivering.
-Did I mention, poor, poor Sheamus.
