[TV Report] WWE ‘Raw’ Recap + Commentary – 2/25/2013


This week RAW comes to us live from Dallas, TX and it’s looking like it’s going to be a stacked show, between the John Cena/CM Punk main event, the Vince McMahon/Paul Heyman “fight”, and potentially an appearance by a certain “Deadman”. Let the build to Wrestlemania 29 continue…or something.

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 2/4/2013


The end of last week’s Raw saw not only proof that Paul Heyman has been working with The Shield this entire time, but also heralded the return of Brock Lesnar who ended last Monday taking WWE Chairman Vince McMahon out with the F-5. Heyman has a lot to answer for this week and he will start right at the beginning as a guest on The Miz’s talk show “MizTV”. What will Heyman have to say? Will Lesnar and/or The Shield appear? And, perhaps most importantly, what does now former WWE Champion CM Punk think about all of this? Those are the big stories going into this week’s show. Also on the docket Punk will continue to build his Elimination Chamber rematch against the man who usurped him The Rock and the personal feud between World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio and The Big Show will continue to build. Smackdown GM Booker T also has a big decision to make in regards to who will be entered in the “Elimination Chamber” in two weeks. The winner will get a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship come Wrestlemania 29 so it is not a decision to take lightly.

One night after the historic end of the Royal Rumble, WWE presents Raw live from Las Vegas, Nevada. Naturally, with Vegas being the gambling capital of the world, theme for tonight’s show is the “RAW Roulette” which will decide the stipulations for the matches (and other stuff). Tonight will also be Vince McMahon‘s “evaluation” of adviser Paul Heyman as well as appearances by Rumble winner John Cena and the men involved in last night’s main event: CM Punk and the man who beat him for the championship, The Rock.

[WWE News] Shawn Michaels Will Not Be at ‘Summerslam’

Photo Credit = WWE has reported that Shawn Michaels will not be in Triple H‘s corner at Summerslam due to the “injuries” suffered at the hands of Brock Lesnar at the end of Monday’s Raw. This is a storyline move meant to make Lesnar look more like a monster headed into the show and give more reason for Triple H to be almost feral in their match come Sunday (and finally one that doesn’t involve Paul Heyman making some minor crack about his kids). Plus with Michaels out of the match, it puts the focus back on Triple H/Lesnar without the distraction of HBK at ringside. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out at Summerslam and after the tremendous build last Monday, I can’t wait. Triple H and Brock Lesnar is going to put on a hell of a fight.

Are you sad HBK won’t be at Summerslam?
