  • yofits

    I ONLY HAVE ONE QUESTION:

    why is Sin Cara red?

    will we see Sin Cara Blue vs Sin Cara Red at Summerslam?

  • sam mccourt

    yeah i noticed that ^

  • ##

    LOL Cole said this episode 999 with 2 more to go for the 1000th show??? LOL

  • sam mccourt

    I don’t know who Bob Buckland is and by the way (cue the thumbs down at this point) if you keeps saying how shit it is then don’t fucking watch it, there are plenty of other wrestling promotions you can become a fan of so why pick the one that is always shit?

  • Capt. Lou Albino

    In a word….trainwreck. No other way to put it. That episode was so poorly written that it makes you wonder if they threw out the original script and did a full rewrite ten minutes before airtime.

  • YES! 3X

    Well that was the worst Raw I’ve seen in years.

    WWE if anyone with authority is reading this Im begging you, Please Fire Hornswoggle. He was never amusing the begin with. What happened tonight was the ultimate slap to the face to wrestling fans. First he won the cruiserweight title, effectively pissing on the history of that championship. Then he ruined the McMahon bastard storyline. Then he ruined DX. And now this.

  • SYM

    RAW was boring. I like the AJ Lee storyline though

  • adam

    Nice end to raw. But one thing i gotta say. So now there are 8 and after smackdown possibly 9 memebers of the smackdown money in the bank match and only 4 for raw. That is kind of crazy. There are double the members as of right now and could be more then double of ryder is put into the match on the smackdown side. Usually if there is a poor diva match that is the bathroom match but i think the raw mitb will be that. And knowing there love for cena and disrespect to the wwe and world title the raw mitb will probably be the main event.

  • Wolfie

    Man I dig crazy chicks!!

  • josh

    Wow, I guess I’m psychic about Raw being bad

  • LIzzyHBK

    @Jake – omg how quickly was that mr McMahon storyling squashed. One of the worst stoeylines ever. xx

  • “Bad Man” Bigelow

    Hornswoggle kidnapped Samoa Joe.

  • newbie

    *SMH-oops, my bad

  • newbie

    Hornswoggle? How unexpected and disappointing. SMG

  • Once you go Bryan, There’s No Point in Tryin’

    No words describe how stupid that was.

  • marcum

    i knew it was hornswaggle as soon as santino walked down to the ring because it obvisouly wasnt micheal cole, and it was another “funny” ending to somthing they came up with.

  • “Bad Man” Bigelow

    I’d rather it be Khali. Talk about a retarded cop out.

  • Jake

    First he is mr.mcmahons son now the anonymous GM, wow Hornswoggle is used more than Tyson Kidd lol !!!

  • Stevie P

    Wow, just wow. I have no words. Probably the worst Raw of the year.

  • devontet

    yeah this is garbage…

  • Wolfie

    OMG they found a way to make it worse than it being Laringitis.

  • poko

    @BlaH

    Trumbo hit some really impressive shots, his turn was a lot of fun.

  • LIzzyHBK

    Buckland (his face) looks younger than most in the locker room (what’s his secret)
    and his body ain’t too bad for an old man either. In fact he looked in the same shape as when Ric Flair was still wrestling. Go Bob!!!! Is what I’ve got to say.

  • Stevie P

    Ugh and now no JR. Can’t get any worse I guess. Oh hey look a Cole vs Lawler match. Guess it can.

  • SYM

    WWE’s going to rig the Michael Cole Poll

  • “Bad Man” Bigelow

    The dog did it, stop blaming Bob Backlund’s hands!

  • BlaH

    @poko
    Trumbo has got some pop in his bat.
    It looks like Prince got this in the bag…but ya never know with Joey Bats

  • Superman

    ” that’s Mr.Backlund to you” crossface chickenwing thumbs up if you actually remember the great fued he had with Bret “the hitman ” hart … ” if he snapped Backlund could clear the whole ring ” Quoting Jerry Lawler in the 1997 Royal Rumble

  • Wolfie

    OH crap I just figured out the GM shit for real. They are going to shove Laringitis down our throats again. That was his phone Santino found. If I am right I am done with WWE.

  • Stevie P

    What a dead crowd? They not know who Bob Backlund is? He’s probably one of the most technical wrestlers of all time. I feel bad for the guy as he’s probably the best wrestler they’ve had so far in this Alumni thing they’ve had.

  • poko

    This homerun derby is pretty entertaining. I thought Fielder was going to tear it up but he looked like he wore down.

  • BlaH

    Bob is crazier than a pet coon!!!

  • SYM

    Oh its 2010 RAW all over. The GM is obviously….Kevin Thorn!

  • Wolfie

    The crowd has no idea who Backlund is.

  • Stevie P

    What is this gonna be? A Battle Royal MITB? lol How many guys are gonna be in this thing?

  • LIzzyHBK

    Brodus Clay is the PG version of the Godfather – shite. Shame to see Drew McIntyre job, he can actually wrestle.

  • BlaH

    My wild guess is y2j will winthe mitb match sunday and he wiil b the first person to lose when he cashes it in

  • Wolfie

    Eve is gonna kiss Punk

  • Wolfie

    Does anyone else think that the vote doesn’t matter and WWE will say we voted for the match no matter what??

  • poko

    It’s because the WWE refs call so few tag team matches that they don’t know stuff like that is never an automatic DQ.

    Seriously, though, that was actually a pretty good match before the awful ending.

  • marcum

    does anyone else think the wwe universe will vote yes for the lawler vs cole match?

  • Icetray

    Did anyone else hope Rey mysterio would come back when big show was attacking everyone?

  • marcum

    its because big show pulled cena out of the ring and i really hope cena doesnt win money in the bank which i know he will. maybe wwe will suprise us for once.

  • Wolfie

    Ah well that explains the second ladder

  • Stevie P

    Besides the opening segment, this Raw has been a clusterfuck of Awful.

  • BlaH

    how the fuck the tag match with Cena- Kane- Jericho- Show end in a DQ??
    that makes no sense

  • Wolfie

    Not really sure why they rung the bell there. Did I miss something??

  • Stevie P

    WTF?!?! They called that a DQ!!?!?! What is this? 1970?

  • Stevie P

    Gonna go on a wild guess and say that the heel team wins by pinning Kane. No way Cena loses by getting pinned.

  • Little Jimmy

    What’s the point of squash matches!?
    Competitive matches = Ratings
    long term Feud’s=Ratings
    more than one storyline=Ratings
    Jim Ross=Ratings
    Legitimate US/IC title matches=Ratings
    Tag Team Title matches=Ratings

    Yet Again The outcome of this week’s Raw Writers wellness test=Fail.

  • WeAreOne

    Did anybody else see the sign that said Aries Vs Punk?????

  • Wolfie

    We all know that the first 1 hr of the 3 hr RAWs is just gonna be John Cena talking about his day in the middle of the ring.

  • Wolfie

    I know who the GM is. I just figured it out. The only person that it can be is the Gobbldy-Gooker!!!

  • poko

    The first 2/3rds of RAW has become a collection of squash matches. That seems to be their strategy going forward. Makes me kind of worried about the program when it’s 3 hours.

    Wahaha, this crowd really doesn’t care much for John Cena.

  • Wolfie

    God I miss Thuganomics.

  • http://www.wrestling-edge.com/wwe-results/live-coverage-tonights-wwe-raw-40.html JLo69

    And a 20 min Cena talk…… Then AJ blah blah blah

  • Little Jimmy

    I’d Rather see Charlie Sheen as Raw GM rather than that daft computer.

  • http://www.wrestling-edge.com/wwe-results/live-coverage-tonights-wwe-raw-40.html JLo69

    And now on raw….more of the same!!!!!! And ratings suck why they ask?

  • http://www.wrestling-edge.com/wwe-results/live-coverage-tonights-wwe-raw-40.html JLo69

    Josh…..Raw SUCKS ass tonight!!!!! About to throw in ECW DVDs and watch them!!!! Uugghhhh

  • BlaH

    i like tweener Jericho.
    Damn my boy Cano got shut down in the Home Run Derby.
    the KC crowd was acting so bush league towards him just cause
    he didnt pick Billy Butler for the AL squad.
    Bring on the dislikes

  • josh

    Who disliked my comment? How can Raw be good when there are 3 matches going less than 3 minutes combined and a Cole vs. Lawler Match? You got the Santino segments and the Heath Slater squash coming too.

  • Wolfie

    If you remember Vince said it was ok for Clay to be on Raw.

  • Stevie P

    What’s up with these 2 minute matches? It’s boring.

  • Eve’s left nipple

    Im going to vote ‘No’ on WWE.com but sadly we will end up seeing it. I thought Clay wasn’t allowed on Raw anymore because of Show? Oh crap i forgot WWE management think we have a memory like a slug.

  • Wolfie

    Off topic but is that the original FreeCreditScore band in the new commercial?

  • josh

    Sigh… this is going to be a bad Raw

  • BlaH

    so many young guys on the roster that could use tv time and we get Cole vs Lawler
    Maybe JR will do the play by play for the rest of the night

  • newbie

    Glad to see Tyson Kidd back where he belongs, a whipping boy.

  • Stevie P

    So…looks like Vickie is gonna be managing Tensai soon…

  • Wolfie

    Every time I see Santino I still get upset that he didn’t win the Elimination Chamber match. Maybe he will win MITB and then they will have to take him more seriously.

  • Stevie P

    Let me guess, we’ll have wasted segments with Santino but not have legit mid-carders have a wrestling match.

  • Dick Cockwrinkle

    An Mick Foley is gonna be at the 1000th RAW as well. May actually watch RAW in 2 weeks.

  • Champ

    Wow poor swagger. He did not look like a former world champion

  • Eve’s left nipple

    ^ If they do it will be lackluster annd its probably Cole being a troll.

  • BlaH

    the Mile High crowd is hot tonight

  • Wolfie

    Ugh I was so upset to hear that stupid sound. Maybe they will actually reveal who it is tonight, but even if they do reveal the GM I am still pissed to see that stupid laptop.

  • http://www.wrestling-edge.com/wwe-results/live-coverage-tonights-wwe-raw-40.html JLo69

    Build in the ring btw. Sorry damn iphone

  • http://www.wrestling-edge.com/wwe-results/live-coverage-tonights-wwe-raw-40.html JLo69

    Stevie in small doeses but 25 mins is rediculous. Let’s f’in wrestle and not a stupid 6 man tag. Build stories in the to g for a change. Awwww the computer gm nice. See here we go some stupid tag bs. Wwe u have a tag division

  • Eve’s left nipple

    Wow they brought a absolute joke of a angle with this laptop crap. Where is Edge when you need him?

  • what?

    NOW THEY JUST KILLED IT

  • Stevie P

    BAHAHAHA Anonymous GM is back baybay!

  • Stevie P

    I like these promos. They’re all good on the mic and AJ is playing a freaking crazy chick. I think it’s awesome.

  • http://www.wrestling-edge.com/wwe-results/live-coverage-tonights-wwe-raw-40.html JLo69

    Wwe writers are lazy!!!!! Once again wwe over loads an angle

  • http://www.wrestling-edge.com/wwe-results/live-coverage-tonights-wwe-raw-40.html JLo69

    I am starting to hate this AJ thing!!!!

  • Eve’s left nipple

    Am i the only one who finds this angle hilarious? haha.

    YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES

  • “Bad Man” Bigelow

    AJ is going to have her cervix sprained tonight!

  • Dick Cockwrinkle

    Rock just announced on twitter that he is gonna be at the 1000th RAW. And he wants the championship. I pray to all the false prophets that Cena don’t walk out of MITB the WWE Champ.
