Tha Raw Report

The post SummerSlam RAW comes live from the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

Tonight’s Guest Host or Guest GM as I like to call them is none other than Floyd “Money” Mayweather. So my money is on a great RAW post SummerSlam. Right? Ah… it was ok.I’m not saying it was a bad edition of RAW, it wasn’t great, it was good. Just good.

It should have been excellent. Definitely a few surprises. Off the top, tonight's RAW starts with a highlight video, showing the controversy from SummerSlam. They go to the back and we get a Orton defense speech. Blah, blah, blah…Orton’s a great heel I just wish he would stop acting like a punk.

Back to the ring and McMahon comes out and hypes the guest host Floyd Mayweather which doesn’t get a warm reception. Vince talks about the controversy between the Orton/Cena match at SS and announces a rematch at Breaking Point.

How many times are we gonna see the same main event? Are we going back to the 80’s where a feud lasts a year or longer?

DX hits the ring and the house comes down. DX let's us in on a secret that tonight is Vince’s BDay and the party ensues. They show a clip of old Vince moments, hilarious moments no doubt… Vince singing in the 80’s LOL Only prob is I remember that clearly back in the day. A giant BDay cake, showgirls, entertainers, the whole nine until finally our ol friend Big Dick Johnson pops out the cake to give Vince a show. Classic DX here folks.

Props out to Lee for impersonating the act at the Tara Inn (while watching RAW) much to the cooks dismay for a mere 20 bucks… which made me laugh more than the RAW version. Back to the show, Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes hit the ring and attack DX. Shawn gets a chair, brings it in the ring and chase them off. Randy Orton appears at the top of the ramp. Vince and DX come up with a match since Floyd was late? And its DX w/McMahon vs Legacy in a no DQ tag team match tonight in the main event.

First match of the night is a quick snore fest pitting Santino Marella vs The Miz. Wasn’t Miz banned from RAW? Somehow I didn’t expect that to last. I was hoping we had gotten rid of his stankin’ ass. Miz is WACK and you can’t convince me otherwise. I could kick the guys ass. How did they let him win? To make up for all the previous embarrassments?

Moving on, it’s the Money Mayweather Melee. Beth Phoenix, Rosa Mendez and Alicia Fox take on Mickie James, Kelly Kelly and Gail Kim. I love the Divas! The ladies come out in boxing type attire which is all good. Not a long or very technical match here. Lots of eye candy as usual, which ya gotta love. Alica takes it by throwing Mickie into the ringpost and hits a scissor kick to the back of the head for the pinfall and the win.

After the commercial DX cuts a promo for The Rise and Fall of the WCW DVD which comes out tomorrow. I can’t wait ! I will be reviewing it. Stay tuned…

Finally Mayweather shows up! WTF dude you can’t be on time for RAW? Anyway the Unified Tag Team Champs are set to fight and Money comes out and messes with Show as I expected and we get a match with Big Show and Jericho taking on MVP and Mark Henry? Is this a new team? They have an ok match though a lil short and the Guest GM helps Henry and MVP win by giving MVP the piece he used at WM25 to knock out the Big Show when the ref wasn’t looking. Cheap win like WrestleMania. Apparently this victory earns Henry and MVP a tag title shot at Breaking Point.

Prediction: Show and Jericho retain at Breaking Point.

Exhibition Boxing match next. Horswoggle vs Chavo Guerrero. Clasic WWE comedy here, not just the midget angle but when the ref brought out Chavo’s giant boxing gloves that they forced him to use. Hornswoggle goes in on Chavo but just like a blind man match what else can he do but cheat. Chavo takes off the gloves when the ref's distracted and bodyslams Hornswoggle and gets DQ’ed. Where’s this feud going? Hey at least they got us laughing…right? Oh ya this is wrestling.

Main event of the night which is sure to be a winner. DX teaming up with Vince for the first time ever. Definatly not a team I expected to ever see. A pretty good match over all. Vince didn’r really do much except get the pin after a Cena run in. DX and Legacy had some great exchanges.

Solid match over all. Legacy is on solid ground now give them a real tag team title run and build a new Legacy before the Fed breaks them up as they seem to do to tag teams that have chemistry. RAW goes off the air with Vince and DX hands raised high celebrating in the ring…

It was an ok RAW like I said. Good, not great, but hey I’m not complaining.


Tha Results:

The Miz def Santino Marella

Beth Phoenix, Alicia Fox and Rosa Mendez def Mickie James, Kelly Kelly and Gail Kim

Mark Henry and MVP def Chris Jericho and Big Show

Boxing Exhibition Match: Hornswoggle def Chavo Guerrero

DX and Vince McMahon def Legacy

Raw sucked hard. Anytime you put Triple H and Vince in the ring together its just overdrawn and shameful to watch.

So, you don't know why The Miz is back on Raw when it happened on Raw last week and it was discussed on Tha O Show last week? Also, it is Breaking Point, not Boiling Point. I do feel that you don't understand that the Chavo/Horny feud may be over with Bourne getting involved. A match between Chavo and Bourne may be what is needed to get Chavo past the comedy stick. Props for Santino for using some of his judo skills in his match.

Someone PLEASE explain to me,the purpose of putting Mayweather in the Ring with the HEEL tag champs when Mayweather is so disliked by the fans? Mayweather will NEVER be over as a face with the Fed's fans so why have him in a showdown with your two biggest heels? Wouldn't it have made more sense to book him as a Heel? The guy is a SHOOT ASSHOLE and the crowd knows it. The whole guest host thing isn't a bad idea,but the fed won't get a rub from Mayweather and Mayweather won't get anything(other than cash)out of it either.
