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...

RAW

The nostalgia is in the air for Raw and I’m truly excited. It’s “old school” time, as WWE goes back in time. The question is, how far? I hope it is like last time and we see the true red, white, and blue ropes, vintage small set, and many surprises & flashbacks. We also look to the future, as WrestleMania XXIX is on the...

Monday Night Raw TV report for 02/25/2013

RAW

Major changes may be made to the card of Wrestlemania XXIX, following tonight’s Raw. On the card is another round of C.M. Punk taking on John Cena, with the winner facing WWE Champion The Rock at “The Showcase of the Immortals.” Who will win? Personally, I’m either hoping for C.M. Punk or a Triple-Threat. Also, it’s...

Monday Night Raw TV report for 02/18/2013

RAW

Even though the Road To WrestleMania began at the Royal Rumble, tonight, the non-stop highway starts, as the only thing between now and WrestleMania XXIX are seven (7) Raws! Last night’s Elimination Chamber was the final “in between” pay-per-view before the “Grand Daddy Of Them All,” so What implications will the...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 02/11/2013

RAW

It’s six nights until Elimination Chamber! We obviously know the main event of the pay-per-view, so the question is how will C.M. Punk and WWE Champion The Rock duke it out one final time before their showdown on Sunday? Who will Brock Lesnar assault next, if at all? Apparently, their is a certain “Deadman” hanging around...

Monday Night Raw TV Report for 02/04/2013

RAW

With the boss laid out last week at the hands of Brock Lesnar, who will return to take Mr. McMahon’s place, and what consequences and/or actions could the former WWE Champion face?

Monday Night Raw TV report for 01/28/2013

RAW

As I say every year now following “The Royal Rumble,” tonight the Road To Wrestlemania begins! And if my heart won-out from last night, that means Dolph Ziggler is driving towards a World Heavyweight or WWE Championship Title match (after winning the Royal Rumble match of course), and C.M. Punk continues his WWE Title reign! However...

Monday Night Raw TV report for 01/21/2013

RAW

With just six nights before the Royal Rumble, what will go down in the “City of the Sharks?” (Yes, that is a sub-par hockey reference, but I also think just a cool name for San Jose!) Hopefully, A LOT more than last week’s MAJOR disappointment of a show. In all honesty, why wait? Since we already know the main matches for the...

IMPACT TV report 01/17/2013

Tessmacher asks if her dad is showing up and there is uncomfortable...

Monday Night Raw TV report for 01/14/2013

RAW

20 years (and three nights, technically!) a “revolution” began that changed professional wrestling and television forever. It has been on a roller coaster of ups and downs, but through it all, has lasted more than any other weekly television event. Surprise hirings, surprise firings, drafts, unexpected returns and debuts, monumental...

Monday Night Raw TV report for 01/07/2013

Tonight is the start of a new year, and tonight (hopefully) is the start of something fresh and monumentus for Monday Night Raw! On the cards of course is the main event Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match between Ryback and WWE Champion C.M. Punk. Who will climb the ladder and claim WWE’s ultimate prize? Also, “The Great One,”...

Monday Night Raw TV report for 12/31/2012

RAW

This is it – the last Raw of 2012! How will WWE go out – on a high note “cliffhanger,” or the usual “blah” kind of show, knowing darn well that no one will be watching since it is New Year’s Eve when airing? (My vote is for the latter!). In any case, it is still Monday Night Raw and the year’s finale...

Monday Night Raw TV report for 12/17/2012

RAW

Following the last pay-per-view of 2012, what has changed for tonight’s Raw? I’m guessing (and hoping) some championships. For example, it would be really cool to see Dolph Ziggler walk out to the ring with a new Heavyweight title! And Wade Barrett should be the Intercontinental vhampion. Those are my main picks. Also, of course, the...
