I like the Ruthless Agression era but I didn't have the chance of watching that time so I decided to watch the shows and write some sorf of a "column" here where I will write about the weekly shows of 2003 starting from 9 June 2003 Raw. I may not do all of them because it's hard to find and watch them. Probably I want write about PPv's as I will just watch them from highlights. Also I don't really know what has happened because I didn't want to look. So those comments that I will make may come out wrong. 9 June 2003: The show kicks off as we see SCSA in his office. HHH comes in and asks who will be the special referee in his match against Kevin Nash at Bad Blood which is a HIAC match. SCSA says that he will tell him later as he announces that. HHH demands to learn but SCSA refuses. Before HHH leaves SCSA says "By the way, Have a Nice Day!" so this is a huge hint! Goldberg vs Rosey: Goldberg's "beat the jobbers" streak continues, of course beating Rock is something else for sure. Jericho tries to interfere but Goldberg kicks the chair in his hand and Jericho runs back. Rosey tries to take the advantage but Goldberg Jackhammers him and gets the win. WWE could have used Goldberg much better but I have to say this Jericho vs Goldberg feud is pretty good. Renee Dupree vs RVD: RVD wins with a roll up despite the numbers disadvantage but Grenier comes and they beatdown RVD. La Resistance does a Double Team Spinebuster on him. JR said "I saw Kane earlier today, where is he?" probably this is a storyline where tension will rise between Kane and RVD. In the GM office Bischoff and SCSA talk about their Triathlon competition which will take place on Bad Blood. This thing going between two of them is fun but also weird. So pie eating comes and I wonder if this will happen in the PPv. Kane is at the backstage and he isn't in a good mood. RVD comes and screams where the he was as La Resistance beat him down. RVD reminds Kane about their tag match on Bad Blood against La Resistance. Kane remains his silence and when RVD says "Maybe you are afraid what Stone Cold said is true" Kane looks at him angrily but nothing happens as he walks off. (This happened last week when Kane lost to Dupree and afterwards Co-GM SCSA came down and asked if Kane still had it and tried to fire him up. Even tried to make Kane chokeslam himself but Kane didnt. In the end Kane got a Stunner from SCSA) Ivory & Trish Stratus vs "WWE Women's Champion" Jazz & Victoria w/Theodore Long First I have to say this, I love Victoria's theme during this time which is All the Things She Said by T.A.T.U. About the match, Ivory got the pin against Jazz for the second consecutive week. Last week it was a 6 women tag match and Ivory again got the pin against the Women's Champion. It was a decent match, probably best of the night. Wonder if it's Ivory's turn against Jazz for the title. Also women's division is pretty strong. They have great wrestlers, great matchs, good storylines. Much better than that times Smackdown where they only have Nidia, Sable and Torrie. SD is eye candy there for sure. Christian is at his locker room as Jericho walks in. Jericho says that he has to leave as Goldberg may try to take vengeance against him. Christian says he has challenged Booker T to a spin-a-roonie contest and he will make Booker embarrassed. Jericho says he embarrassed Goldberg as he speared him, painted his car and made him spear a referee. Christian says "Aren't you a bit worried, you made him mad he may want to kill you." Jericho says it's his plan. Goldberg is mad and he will make a mistake at Bad Blood. Jericho says he will capitilize the mistake and win on sunday. Then he runs away. Lance Storm vs Scott Steiner w/Stacy Keibler Steiner gots the win. This whole Steiner vs Test thing for Stacy bores me a bit. Probably because it involves Scott Steiner. But he is around there probably he is pretty popular during that time. Test attacks Steiner after the match and hits him with chair a few times. Then he takes Stacy to corner and tells that she doesn't have to be his girlfriend as he will win on Sunday and make her his whore. Stacy tries to slap him but Test catches the hand and sends Stacy to the floor. This segment was pretty good, made me interesting a bit but it still consists Steiner wrestling so... SCSA comes to the entrance ramp and announces the referee for HIAC match on sunday and it is Mick Foley as we expected. Foley enters the HIAC and talks about he being retired but when he was watching Raw last week he wanted to be that referee and then SCSA called him. He talks about his injuries, what he has done. Now all he has to do is count to three but HHH interrupts him and says that Foley is an ordinary guy just like the fools in the crowd. HHH says that he retired Foley in 27 January 2000. Then they exchange words at last HHH threatens him. Says that people should not have a say on his decision. HHH gives him time then says "You better make the right choice or I will make you do it." Randy Orton w/Ric Flair vs The Hurricane w/Shawn Michaels Now where is Batista? Once he was there probably in January or February but then Evolution disappeared now it's just Orton? No Batista? Injury? Orton gets the win with a pretty bad RKO. That was terrible but it was before he got perfect at RKO's. After the match Flair and Orton attack Hurricane and Orton does another terrible RKO. HBK gets up and attacks both and lays them down but no Superkicks. Referee stops him. This Flair vs HBK things is just great. Whole passing the torch thing is amazing. There has been amazing promos and a strong build up. Probably the best storyline and the match in Bad Blood. I mean... WTF is Nash vs HHH?! Spin-a-Roonie contest... Now this is entertainment which isn't entertaininng. It's like sitcoms which are not funny and just have fake laughs. As T tried to do a spin-a-roonie Christian tries to hit him with the belt but T ducks it and tries to kick Christian but Christian runs away. T celebrates it then goes to backstage. As he poses at the entrance, Christian hits him with the belt! He raises the belt. I just love this Christian. It's good but it will be perfect when he will become CAPTAIN CHARISMA. Shame WWE didn't get all of it and released him. Shame WWE, Shame. Look at what TNA has made him! A real star! Rodney Mack w/Christopher Nowinski vs D-Von Dudley w/Bubba Ray Dudley Terrible match. Worst of the night. So these teams will have a match at Bad Blood? A nonsens push for Mack and Nowinski... Stop the pain. Goldberg says that Jericho is next on Sunday. Jericho hits him with the chair but Goldberg stays up and Jericho runs away. SCSA looks for Foley backstage Finds him and encourages him about being the special referee in HIAC this sunday. He calls him a coward then says the decision is up to Foley now. HHH comes down to the ring and he calls Foley out. Foley talks about his family and about retirement. Says he will return to his ordinary line on Monday because he will be the referee on Sunday! He says he is a bit scared because HHH can attack him anywhere, anytime. He doesn't know it but still he will be the referee. Foley gets into the ring, attacks Hunter but HHH takes him out with a chair but still Foley gets up. Hunter hits a Pedigree on the chair but again Foley gets up. Evolution comes down and attacks Foley but Nash comes down for the save. Kevin Nash... 2003... Still HE IS TOO OLD FOR THAT TIME! So not a bad show. It was good actually but the lack of quality in WHC match is a real problem. Foley being the referee is interesting for sure but Nash vs HHH. Why Nash? Just to make HHH's reign longer?.. Matches were not that good. Worst of the night was D-Von vs Mack which was boring and had some botches. Best of the night was women's tag match.
