Monday Night Raw TV Report for 07/22/2013

RAW

With the (supposed) main-event now set for SummerSlam, how will the coming weeks see WWE Champion John Cena and his new challenger, Daniel Bryan, go at it? Especially since they are both babyfaces! Could we see Randy Orton get involved with his Money In The Bank briefcase, which secures him a shot at the WWE Title? What havoc will The Wyatt Family...

Monday Night Raw TV report for 07/15/2013

RAW

After three consecutive great Raws, the streak was broken last week, as I felt the “go-home” show for Money In The Bank was just average. I loved a few of the fantastic wrestling matches, particularly Daniel Bryan VS. Sheamus and Orton taking on Punk. I also LOVED the build-up to the much-anticipated debut of the Wyatt Family, however...

Monday Night RAW TV Report for 07/01/2013

RAW

Subsequent to two fantastic Raws in a row, and a great edition of Smackdown! (read that fine report on this fine website), what is in store for tonight as we push towards Money In The Bank on July 14? Since the participants have now been announced, I smell some bouts between individuals on the rise; which all could be very awesome considering the...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 06/24/2013

RAW

A week after a pretty darn great week in WWE, what does the new seven days bring in the land of wrestling? With the cliff-hanger that was a confrontation between the “Paul Heyman Guys” of C.M. Punk and Brock Lesnar, what is the beef between the two and how will Paul Heyman himself factor in? Then there’s Intercontinental Champion...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 06/17/2013

RAW

Last night, I’m sure many wrestlers got payback, but let’s just see who. Here’s hoping that both Heavyweight Champions retained their titles, as their challengers do not need/should not have, respectively, the championships. Also, what was the fallout from Chris Jericho VS. C.M. Punk? Did they actually wrestle, or did the...

Monday Night Raw Report for 06/10/2013

RAW

Tonight is six away from Payback for many wrestlers, but an even bigger night for one World Heavyweight Champion! “The Show Off” Dolph Ziggler returns after a month of being out-of-action, and we now know that he is cleared to wrestle too! I suspect that Alberto Del Rio will get his long-awaited rematch for the Title at this...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 06/03/13

RAW

Following last week’s ending, who will Curtis Axel pick on next to elevate himself? (He needs to now have a legitimate win, other than Sin Cara from Smackdown two weeks in a row! As long as Paul Heyman cuts a promo tonight with him, that’ll be good enough for me to sell the repackaged man for another week! Also, how will Chris Jericho...

WWE honors Bret Hart after RAW goes off the air

Bret Hart

Live, from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, it is now time for the REAL main-event of the evening: honoring Bret “The Hit Man” Hart! A quick highlight package of Bret airs for the intro, then we cut to Jerry “The King” Lawler in the ring.

Live from my home country, Canada, Raw is back in Calgary! And of course, along with Raw is Bret “The Hit Man” Hart! The “Excellence Of Execution” makes a triumphant return home and will be appreciated/celebrated tonight, (hopefully) on the air, as well as off. FYI – since I live in Canada, I get to watch the post-Raw...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 05/20/2013

RAW

Many questions arise for tonight’s Raw, as it is just under twenty-four hours removed from the end of Extreme Rules. Who walked out the Last Man Standing and WWE Champion – John Cena, the champion, or Ryback, the challenger? Was it Jack Swagger or Alberto Del Rio that made the other say “I Quit?” Is “The Shield”...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 05/13/2013

RAW

Tonight is just six nights before Extreme Rules! We know most of the matches and their respective stipulations, so all that’s left is one final push. That will happen for sure in three segments, with Brock Lesnar and Triple H face-to-face, and … The other hot rivalry already featured will be a “Dance-Off” between Chris...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 05/06/2013

RAW

Can Raw tonight follow up last week’s amazing WRESTLING show? I hope so, as we are live from Roanoke, Virginia. How will the south-eastern fans of the U.S. take to Fandango? What is the update on WWE Champion John Cena and his (literate) achilles heel? The Shield continue to dominate, on their way to a potential WWE Tag-Team Championship...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 04/29/2013

RAW

Even though tonight is back to the usual place of America, let’s hope the show is still way above par, especially after last week’s cliffhanger with The Shield attacking Ryback too! How will the “meathead” respond? Also, WWE Champion John Cena has legitimately injured his Achilles tendon (thank you Colin for the info), so...

Monday Night Raw TV report for 04/22/2013

RAW

Raw is overseas tonight, as it emanates from London, England! What will go down in the historical royal country? I can definitely guarantee you an appearance from The Undertaker, as “The Deadman” will team up with Tag-Team Champions “Team Hell-No” to face The Shield! Also, what will the fallout be from Ambrose, Rollins, and...

In light of the tragedy in Boston, I will not be giving my usual Raw preview or an episode title, but instead, offer my condolences, thoughts, and prayers to all affected by the incident. May God take care of all in need. Monday Night Raw Report for April 15th, 2013 Introduction Segment: Recap/Preview and Welcoming A montage of last week’s...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 04/08/2013

RAW

For the first time since WrestleMania XXII in 2006, my Dad and I did NOT watch the “Granddaddy Of Them All.” Simple reason – we just had no interest in the overall show. However, I also have NO idea what happened last night, and am really excited for Raw, to see how the landscape has changed as the old cliche goes. So...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 04/01/2013

Tonight is the final stop on the “Road To WrestleMania!” What will go down in the America’s capital for that one last push to the “Granddaddy Of Them All?” Why speculate, let’s just get right to it!

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 03/18/2013

RAW

It is now just under three weeks away from WrestleMania XXIX! Of course, we know the two main-matches, but now the undercard is starting to shape up with the addition of “The Shield” taking on Ryback, Sheamus, and “The Viper,” Randy Orton. after last week, I can see (and hope for) a Tag-Team Championship bout placed on the...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 03/11/2013

RAW

Tonight, I begin with a tribute message about William Moody, a.k.a. “Paul Bearer.” As many of you who read this report, know by now I’m sure, he passed away on Tuesday, March 5th, at the age of 58. I will talk more about him and my memories growing up watching him throughout the 90s and early 2000s as a manager, but for now, I...
