At Hell in a Cell (the previous night), The Miz & R-Truth did a run-in after the WWE title main event. This is a black & white picture of the aftermath. It is also the reason why I cared to watch RAW at all...and I'm glad that I did!
From reading around various websites today, the feelings on RAW last night seem to be.. mixed. I, however, liked the majority of what I saw. Namely the closing angle with everyone walking out on C.O.O. Triple H & the awesome 12-man tag team match (which even featured Mason Ryan). WWE right now have a lot entertaining guys on the roster. Although not main event caliber (at least not all of them, not in my opinion), people like Evan Bourne, Kofi Kingston & Dolph Ziggler are damn entertaining to watch. They bring that high energy feel to the show, and I'm not talking about the Owen Hart & Koko B. Ware tag team.
I wasn't a fan of how Mark Henry was used over the course of the night though. He's been built as this unstoppable monster. He has beat Randy Orton clean in the middle with his finish on two consecutive PPVs. One for the title, the next (in a Cell) to defend the title. That's pretty impressive. However, after the Cell match, Orton beat him down with a chair and he ran away. On RAW last night, after Randy Orton had already wrestled a match, Mark Henry came out to start some shit or potentially split a wig. A brawl broke out, with security doing run-ins to pull the two apart. For the first time since becoming a new & improved THUMP-slam throwing main eventer, Orton got the upper hand on Henry. I'm O.K. with that, actually, because you need people to believe the babyface can win too. But then later in the night, Henry was talking about "unsafe working conditions" and there not being good enough security. This is the same Henry that purposely injured people with a Pillmanizer (Kane, Big Show, Vlad Koslov) and just earlier in the night was subdued by said inept security. It just didn't make a whole lot of sense. Whatever.
QUOTE(@TheRealMorrison on Twitter)
who am I kidding, HHH is a narcissist. He doesn't think I'm at his level- His main concern is positioning himself as the center of attention
Storyline "kayfabe" or not, this was hilarious to me. What does Morrison have to lose at this point though? He's already in the doghouse, being completely buried (see his twenty second loss to Alberto Del Rio) & his wife was fired. At least he's doing something entertaining for a change! Go Twitter.
Speaking of Twitter, Kevin Von Erich has been going off. Shitting on Mark Henry & even Chris Jericho. Here's his Tweets:
Texas has produced some great talent................. Mark Henry is not one of them. Damn he is boring.
@IAmJericho Is another guy I never saw anything in. He is a prima donna. I don't mean to come down on @IAmJericho but he has an exaggerated opinion of his abilities. I might not have worn boots when I worked but I also didn't get blonde highlights in my hair when I was in my 40s.
Pretty funny burn at the end there. I'm surprised WWE never tried to get Lacey Von Erich though. She seems to be exactly what they would be looking for. A famous name, blond with big fake tits. Maybe she is being black-balled because she worked that Hogan/Flair show? I have no idea. She would have to be better than fuckin' Kelly Kelly though. Take that either way...
