  1. How did you like RAW x-mas special?? Full Results below!

    We are in Minneapolis, Minnesota and your announcers are Michael Cole, John Layfield, and Jerry Lawler.

    The stage is set up for Christmas and it is a good thing because we have a Miracle on 34th Street Fight between Bray Wyatt and Dean Ambrose. Roddy Piper will host Piper’s Pit with Rusev as his guest. Roman Reigns will face Big Show.

    Santa Hogan makes his way to the ring.

    He says that he is here to spread cheer along Monday Night Raw. He wants everyone to chant ‘Ho Ho Hogan’. Tonight, he will be giving presents to the WWE Superstars and the WWE Universe? We will see Big Show go one on one with Roman Reigns. You will also see Bray Wyatt face Dean Ambrose in a Miracle on 34th Street Fight. Whatcha gonna do when Ho Ho Hogan . . .

    is interrupted by John Cena.

    He says that there are some on the naughty and nice list here tonight. One man we have here is Ho Ho Hogan Claus. If there is one man who is as iconic as Santa Claus it is Ho Ho Hogan.

    Cena says that he has done his best to be good this year and he wanted a Frozen Sing a Long until the main event from last Monday’s Raw when he was attacked by Brock Lesnar in the Steel Cage match.

    John says that the WWE Universe agrees with him because he wants Brock Lesnar after what happened. John says that some would say it wasn’t fair what Brock did to him by giving him three German suplexes and then he got curb stomped. He lost to Seth Rollins last week, fair and square.

    John says that he wants a match tonight against Seth Rollins. He says that he will be ready for everyone so he wants to know what Hogan will do for him.

    Seth Rollins’ music plays and he comes out with Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble.

    Seth says that he cannot believe what he is hearing. This is ridiculous. He did curb stomp John last week so maybe that is why he can’t see what is wrong with this picture. First, you are out here running your mouth again. He reminds John that no one wants to hear his voice. He didn’t come out here to disrespect John or Hogan. You are both legends in your respective eras.

    Seth says that John’s time is up and his time is now. He is the future of WWE and he is the new standard bearer. If you want to last one more day in the Seth Rollins era, that is something you are going to have to live with.

    Seth says that isn’t even why he came out here. The real indictment on this entire company is the fact that Ho Ho Hogan is running Raw tonight when it should be the Authority. He says that Hogan is a farce. Seth says that he doesn’t mean to be the Grinch, but Stephanie and Triple H deserve to be here with all they have accomplished in 2014 but they are at home depressed because they are sitting at home watching people like Hogan run this company into the toilet.

    That started at Survivor Series when your team couldn’t get it done and had to get help from the Vigilante Sting. Seth says that he considers John lucky. He is lucky that he let John get up and walk out of the ring on his own two feet. Santa, if you don’t grant him his Christmas present, you might not be so lucky. The present he wants and deserves is to force John Cena to do the right thing and bring the Authority back.

    John tells Seth to shut up. John says that Seth is putting the people to sleep. This year, you turned your back on your friends. You have lied, cheated, and stole. Now you have the gall to run your mouth against Hogan. If you come to the ring, you will get a present from him.

    John tells Seth to come to the ring like a man or stay there like a coward. He says that he is not bringing the Authority back.

    Hogan says that he will have to go with an alternative. Seth Rollins will face John Cena and that will be the opening match.

  2. Dean Ambrose closed the show tonight... not Cena, Orton, or Roman Reigns.
    There was no CM Punk, Daniel Bryan or Randy Orton at all so WWE is clearly turning the page on yesteryear.
    It was a really good show and everybody who was supposed to get over, got over.

    The things I took away from tonight that really struck me:
    - How much of an unstoppable monster Luke Harper will become
    - How over Damien Sandow will be at Wrestlemania vs Miz
    - How they are still testing whether or not they want to push Dean Ambrose to the top or not

    I am sensing a Dolph Ziggler heel turn for the first time. It won't be anytime soon but possibly more toward the expiration of his contract.
    If WWE senses cold feet on Ziggler's part to resign, they will turn him heel at the height of his popularity and feed him to Reigns to send him out of the 'E'.

  3. Next week for Raw I'd like to see Rowdy Piper in charge.
     
  4. Watching this episode right now! Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. Will rate/review it later.
     
  5. The things I took away from tonight that really struck me too :
    - Roman Put the crybaby Big show in his place
    - How much of an unstoppable monster Luke Harper will become
    - How over Damien Sandow will be at Wrestlemania vs Miz
     
  6. Just done watching this episode. It wasn't too bad, but it wasn't too good, either. It was kind of a lackluster, pretty much like every other RAW episode post-Survivor Series. Oh well... 4/10

    Positives:
    - Thank God for Seth Rollins coming out and saving us from that cringe-worthy segment that was going on with Cena and Hogan. I also loved Seth's promo, he's been improving on the mic each week.
    - CENAWINSLOL vs Rollins was good, these two have a good chemistry. Cena performed a new move? Well, that's extremely new of him.
    - Harper vs Ziggler for the IC title was great all the way through. Both guys are just incredible, and there's a bright future ahead of Harper, for sure!
    - I didn't care for Miz vs Jey Uso. Mizdow's my boy. He stole the show again.
    - The ME, Ambrose vs Wyatt in a Miracle On 34th Street Fight was awesome! Man, I've been loving this Ambrose/Wyatt feud from the get-go... And am I glad Ambrose/Wyatt closed the show instead of Reigns or Cena. Push the much more talented Ambrose, c'mon!

    Negatives:
    - No Heyman or Lesnar? EAT. SLEEP. DISAPPEAR. REPEAT. Sounds about right. They should be there next week, so... Expecting to see some ass kicking by Lesnar and Heyman delivering some golden promo.
    - CENAWINSLOL. (shocker) Aww hell naw, Rollins has been on a losing streak lately.
    - Reigns vs Big Show was garbage. Just let Reigns finish off the Big Slow before the Rumble, we don't need to watch this clusterfuck again.

    The neutral:
    - Piper's Pit segment followed by a Ryback/Rusev brawl.

    The 'Why God, why is this crap on TV?' segment:
    - The openning segment was such a yawn fest with Hogan and Cena there.
    - Swagger vs Fandango. Had no interest in seeing this dogshit.
    - R-Truth vs Adam Rose. LOL
    - Whatever Divas Division dosghit match was on.
    - Gold & Stardust vs Los Matadores. Are fucking kidding me?!
    - Gladly skipped another divas match.

    Expecting the next week's RAW episode to totally reek of awesomeness... or not! E&C are gonna be back, baybay! Can't wait.
     
  7. :lol1: Apparently Rollins jobbed in the opener to Cena. I won't even get into that. Dolph looked great, I'd be excited for a great title reign which would elevate Ziggler and the IC title to great heights in 2015 but I know better. Paige looked very good this evening. And I didn't watch the entire ME, I guess it was good, but was that finish the finish, really? :lol1:

  8. Surprisingly the episode wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, still was not that great by any means though.

    I actually gave it a good score, but more because I had a fun time watching it than it was good.

    Harper versus Ziggler, Rollins versus Cena and Ambrose versus Wyatt were all solid enough matches for me to forgive a lot of the crap that followed it. I know I am beating a dead horse with the three hour RAW issue, but I imagine more people would rate this as a better show if it had been two hours, anchored by those three matches. They could have shortened promos, had the other matches and it would have been more solid. It's like Johnny Carson once said when he was hosting the Oscars: "Welcome to the Academy Awards, a glittering two hours of entertainment, spread out over four hours." Why have a dull three hour show when you can put together a somewhat entertaining two hour show?

    I think a lot of people were likely irritating with the whole Ho Ho Hogan thing, but I honestly loved it. Here is a 61 year old man who still thinks that he should be allowed to wrestle in main events despite all medical evidence and fan interest to the contrary, a man who has used politics to hold more people back, a man who lies and tries to take credit for every other person's wrestling accomplishments, reduced to hosting a show, wearing a second rate Santa suit and being called "Ho Ho Hogan" all night. I absolutely loved seeing his inflated ego subjected to it. That joy alone caused me to add an extra point.

  10. When people setup the voting, you really need to make it public. I see votes all across the board, using the users I value to decide whether the RAW is worth watching or not. I'll give this a shot now because of Jacob's post - limited spoilers - and the rest I try to ignore. Just for future reference @Sharpy Sandow since I cannot read your long list and avoid the "positives and negatives" of other users, i really need to know who voted what in order to see who's vote is valuable IMO.
     
  11. LOL.

    Come on, man. Just watch the fucking thing. There's ww.ch and you can easily skip segments and whatnot.

  12. Full text of Spoilers all day, I don't like the short ones :) but sure if I get a chance to make this thread again I'll make the votes public.

  13. It's had 4 and 5 out of 10 averages the past few weeks. Fuck that. Asking for a public view for the voters isn't shit to ask and makes a ton of sense, considering some users come and vote 10 randomly, and some users really REALLY enjoy shows I wouldnt give a 4.
     
  14. I've got nothing against how you write out your review brother, just having the voting so I can see whether or not I want to spend 60-120 minutes of my time on WWE would help a lot. Thanks.
     
  15. Umm, I see where you're coming from...

    But, screw the 'positives and negatives' and all that stuff from other people, you should watch it only if you want to. It shouldn't really be based on other people's opinions, they beg to differ.
    The product can't leave everyone satisfied, that's for sure.

    Also, if it helps... This week's episode was a tad bit better than the one from last week.
     
  16. Edge and Christian will host it next week, actually.
     
  17. it being a tad bit better is why i'm watching it, but I'm glad i turned down the free ticket to go watch this shit.

    You can enjoy the shit out of WWE all you want, but i really haven't much of this entire year, and am mostly interested in Wyatt/Ambrose, Ziggler/Harper and a few other things, but if the average rating is 4/10 or even a 5 why in the fuck would I waste my time? If anything seeing that I know to skip along and rewind if I have to.

    You can do what you want, but let's compare RAW to Smackdown as they both have been shit for quite a while. RAW has had a few decent shows with 6-8 ratings and i'm glad to watch those, but it'd be like me telling you to forget the smackdown spoilers and just watch the show to get your own opinion. The spoilers can tell you it sucks all by themselves, just like the ratings here will do for me.
     
  18. I like skimming the spoilers to see what the matches are before investing my time to watch one of the shows. If the match card looks decent with half or more of it's matches seeming interesting then yes I will watch it.
     
  19. That's fair, I guess.

    Yeah, there were some good times and there were some bad times in WWE this year. Honestly, the product's sucked since Survivor Series.
    Regardless of the average 4/10 or 5/10 rating, we continue to watch the product because we're still fans, and there's that habit factor, also.

    Yeah, RAW's sucked ass for quite some time now, but SmackDown's been shit for as long as I can remember. There were some decent episodes here and there, I cannot lie. But those decent SD episodes don't come around very often.

    Speaking of spoilers, I only read 'em for SmackDown. I'm usually like 'Ahh, fuck this shit.', yet I end up watching it every week 'cause I'm still a fan of this fucking business and I'm hoping it'll get better someday. There's also that habit factor I mentioned and I'll be like 'Hey, I'm bored shitless. I'm gonna watch RAW/SmackDown.'

  20. I did that for quite a while, but now I have plenty of other shit to keep me busy. I am mostly invested in the RTWM deal, but if it's shit like last week was, i'd rather skip it and youtube for 10 minutes to get the two parts worth it.
