[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 – 1/7/2013

raw-recap

The first Raw of 2013 is looking to be a promising one…if you ignore the whole “three hour” thing. Here’s what to expect:

  • The Rock returns to start building his WWE Championship match with CM Punk at Royal Rumble…that is if Punk can survive the TLC Match against Ryback scheduled for the main event.
  • Dolph Ziggler and his cohorts AJ Lee and Big E Langston will be looking for revenge on John Cena after he ruined their New Year’s toast last week by, sigh, dumping poop on them.
  • Alberto Del Rio will continue to defend the honor of his best buddy Ricardo Rodriguez against World Heavyweight Champion The Big Show.
  • More superstars will announce themselves as entrants in the 2013 Royal Rumble match.
  • The Shield will continue to cause more chaos…and with the return of Randy Orton they might have a foil willing to get in there and stop them.

[TV Results] WWE Friday Night Smackdown – 12/28/2012

WWE-Friday-Night-Smackdown (Small)

On the final 2012 edition of Smackdown, GM Booker T decides the next challenger to The Big Show‘s World Heavyweight Championship by, erm, putting everyone’s name in a hopper and picking at random. Also The Miz tries to extract some revenge from Dolph Ziggler but unfortunately it’s not a 1 on 1 affair and The Funkadactyls actually get *gasp* physical.

[TV Results] WWE Raw – 12/24/2012

new-raw_600

On a special Christmas Eve edition of Raw, Alberto Del Rio cemented his face turn by running over guest host Santa Claus while new couple Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee cuddled up and Ryback announced that his match against CM Punk for the WWE Championship on the first Raw of 2013 will be a “Tables, Ladders, and Chairs” match. That’s really all you need to know about the “storyline” stuff. Here are the match results from PWTorch.

  1. Kane defeated Cody Rhodes.
  2. Kaitlyn/Layla/Natalya/Alicia Fox defeated *WWE Divas Champion* Eve Torres/Tamina Snuka/Rosa Mendes/Aksana in a “Santa’s Little Helper” 8-women Divas tag team match (meaning they were dressed in goofy costumes so Jerry Lawler could gawk)
  3. Sheamus pinned *World Heavyweight Champion* The Big Show in a non-title “Lumberjack Match”. All the lumberjacks wore Santa hats because Christmas.
  4. Zack Ryder pinned David Otunga.
  5. *WWE I.C. Champion* Kofi Kingston/The Miz defeated *WWE U.S. Champion* Antonio Cesaro/Wade Barrett
  6. The Great Khali pinned Brad Maddox.
  7. Daniel Bryan defeated Damien Sandow by submission with the No-Lock.
  8. Santino Marella/Brodus Clay/Tyson Kidd/Justin Gabriel/Jimmy Uso/Jey Uso defeated Tensai/Heath Slater/Jinder Mahal/Drew McIntyre/Darren Young/Titus O’Neil
  9. John Cena defeated Alberto Del Rio in a “Miracle on 34th Street” match. Santa had a run in in the form of Mick Foley who deployed Mr. Socko while dressed in the red and white.

[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.
