raw-recap

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

raw-recap

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.

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 12/17/2012 (The 2012 Slammy Awards)

raw-recap

Raw 12/17 Preview:

  • A lot of stories to expand on after the events at TLC 24 hours ago (results here), but the big one concerns AJ Lee‘s betrayal of John Cena, costing him his ladder match against Dolph Ziggler and robbing him of a World Heavyweight Championship opportunity. How will Cena react? And more importantly has Lee turned her attentions to Ziggler?
  • In other TLC news, The Shield were victorious in their first in-ring outing, defeating the team of Ryback and Team Hell No in a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match. What is next on The Shield’s docket?
  • Post-TLC fall-out aside, this week’s episode will also center around the 2012 Slammy Awards. Who will come up big? Who will come up short? Will we see any long-forgotten faces?

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 12/3/2012

raw-recap

Raw 12/3 Preview:

  • The Shield (Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins/Roman Reigns) made yet another statement at the end of last week’s show, taking out not only Ryback once again but also the WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No. While they claim not to work for WWE Champion CM Punk, evidence continues to mount towards the contrary, and there’s a good chance these three former NXT stars will once again make their presence felt.
  • Vince McMahon will be on the show tonight, for reasons yet unclear but given how crazy things have been getting over the past few weeks, he’ll undoubtedly have plenty to say.
  • Speaking of the WWE Tag Team Champions, Daniel Bryan and Kane seemed to have finally buried the hatchet over the past week and are finally getting on the same page. But given their antagonistic personalities, it’ll be interesting to see if they can make it last.
  • Last week John Cena appeared to silence his harshest critic, Dolph Ziggler, by pinning him clean in the center of the ring. However Ziggler has not let the feud go, continuing to antagonize Cena on Smackdown. With tempers flaring and tensions mounting we may be in for another Cena/Ziggler match…perhaps at a certain PPV coming up soon.
  • And as for Cena and AJ Lee…it looks like they seem to be getting much more friendly in recent weeks due to the accusations and attacks brought on them by Vickie Guerrero and her associates. But it seems Lee might be just a little more into Cena than vice versa. Given how the past month has gone show-wise, we’ll be sure to be treated to another chapter of WWE’s ongoing soap opera story.
  • World Heavyweight Champion The Big Show made a statement last week by taking a chair and dismantling it right in front of his TLC opponent Sheamus. With their “Chairs Match” only two weeks away, it’ll be interesting to see how the feud continues to progress.

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 11/26/2012

Raw 11/26 Preview:

  • After putting Ryback through a table not once but twice last week, the mysterious “NX3” (Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins/Roman Reigns) have a lot to answer for and tonight Michael Cole will try to get those answers in their first ever live interview.
  • Vickie Guerrero brings out even more evidence of a John Cena/AJ Lee “affair”. Deja vu, much? Also the John Cena/Dolph Ziggler feud that has sprung from this scandal continues and it’s Ziggler’s turn for revenge after being locked in an STF last Friday on Smackdown.
  • The Sheamus/The Big Show feud continues as we get closer to their “Chairs match” at next month’s TLC.
  • As of today, the WWE Championship reign of CM Punk has lasted 371 days with no end in sight. However Ryback is still on the hunt. Will there be a match announced for TLC? Who knows!

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 11/12/2012 (‘Survivor Series 2012’ Go-Home Show)

This week on Raw:

  • Jerry Lawler makes his triumphant return to the announce table after two months away recovering from his on-air heart attack. He will be joined by Michael Cole and Jim Ross.
  • Brad Maddox will take on Ryback for the chance at a “1 Million Dollar contract”. For Maddox it’s a chance at stardom; for Ryback it’s an opportunity for revenge against the man who cost him the WWE Championship at Hell in a Cell.
  • WWE Champion CM Punk will face John Cena in a preview of this Sunday’s Survivor Series triple threat main event.
  • Vickie Guerrero continues her crusade against John Cena and AJ Lee, this time presenting “audio” evidence of their alleged “affair” that cost Lee her GM job.
  • Cena will also be involved in a face-to-face with Ryback, who stared him down something fierce to end last week’s show.
  • With a week to go until the “traditional” Survivor Series match, Team Foley still needs a fifth man. Team captain Mick Foley will fill that spot tonight…and hopefully explain why he still cares now that “Team Punk” has become “Team Ziggler”.

All this and much more awaits you on the Survivor Series Go-Home edition of Raw. Click “read more” for a full breakdown of the entire show plus my own thoughts/observations/analysis/blatherings.

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 11/5/2012

On this week’s edition of Raw:

  • The show comes live to tape from jolly ol’ Birmingham, England so there’s a good chance you can find spoilers. Don’t though; this is a much better and cooler recap.
  • Brad Maddox will make his first appearance since costing Ryback the WWE Championship at Hell in a Cell. 
  • Vickie Guerrero will present video evidence of John Cena/AJ Lee‘s alleged “affair”. Expect Cena to retaliate and for Dolph Ziggler to also get involved.
  • With two weeks to go until Survivor Series, expect the WWE to continue building its already announced matches as well as (hopefully) add a couple more.

All this and much more on this U.K. edition of Raw. Click “read more” for a detailed recap of the entire event plus my own thoughts.
