Edge/Lita Sex Celebration- Edge, the new WWE champion, and Lita start marking out on a bed in the ring but eventually Ric Flair and John Cena come out to attack Edge.
1/13 Smackdown in Philadelphia, PA, Truly one of the biggest Smackdown’s in History.

Batista Interview- Michael Cole said that tonight’s show would be historic and finally he’s right. Batista has to step down as Champion because of a recent injury and he is visibly shaken up, as he should be. It’s too bad that his near 10 month title reign has to end from a silly injury from a scrub like Mark Henry as it would have been nice to see him hold the title until Wrestlemania as it would have made the title change mean much more, rather than him stepping down from injuries. Well, shit happens huh?
Batista/Rey Mysterio Segment- Batista leaves and shakes hand with everyone. I haven’t been a big Batista fan but it was still emotional to see him have to end his first title run, a nice lengthy title reign from an injury.
Booker T/Chris Benoit/Orlando Jordan Int, Teddy Long/Randy Orton Int
US Title Match (7 of 7): Chris Benoit vs. Randy Orton- Quite the match which sees Orton pull it off and win the US title for Booker T.
Rowdy Roddy Piper/JBL Int
Guerrero Family Segment
Piper’s Pit with JBL/Jillian Hall/Boogeyman- Boogeyman comes out and eats Jillian’s mole!! Now we all know it’s a fake mole but still, it’s the thought that still grosses us out.
Fit Finlay Promo
World Heavyweight Title, Battle Royal Match- Won by Kurt Angle who shocks everyone by coming over from Raw and winning the match. I would have liked to see Rey Mysterio win but Angle as Champion is alright too. On Raw, they will explain what’s going on with Kurt Angle and if he is now a Smackdown guy.

Kurt Angle vs. Daivari- At the end of the show, I still can’t believe they are giving Mark Henry a title shot.
1/23 Raw in Charlotte, NC

Edge/Lita/John Cena Interview- Feels like the WWE tried to put something together here to get Cena over as much as possible before the Rumble but it brought too many flashbacks of Rock and Jericho making fun of Stephanie and they had much better hoe cracks.
Kane vs. Carlito
Edge/Lita Int, Big Show/Edge/Lita Int, Mickie James/Trish Stratus Int
Victoria and Candice Michelle vs. Trish Stratus and Ashley- Is it just me or are these women matches getting harder and harder to watch? The
Shelton Benjamin vs. Shawn Michaels- So fun but these two on PPV would be twice as good. Vince McMahon comes out before the match and says Michaels must win or he won’t be in the Rumble. Of course Shawn wins however.
Royal Rumble Card Video
Shawn Michaels/Vince Interview- Man, I was hangin’ on every word during this interview. You never know what these two will say or do. Their match at Wrestlemania won’t be a classic but the build up is fun so far.

Raw Rebound, Melina/Teddy Long Int, Mark Henry/Daivari Int
Kurt Angle vs. MNM- I don’t understand this match. I mean, if a heel GM or owner makes it, it’s probably because they are getting back or making life hell for someone. But this was the announced main event from the beginning of the show and I am not a fan at all for handicapped matches, they just suck.
1/30 Raw in Orlando, FL, Night After Royal Rumble

Edge Int
Vince/Shawn Michaels Interview- Shane attacks Michaels from behind.
Rob Van Dam vs. Gene Snitsky- Crowd chants boring because the match went longer than 90 seconds. I don’t get it. What’s a squash match going to do? So why do people want to see a squash match?
Shelton Benjamin/Shelton’s Mamma/Goldust Int- Why don’t they keep Goldust? He is a fun character and they can do a lot with it.

Mickie James/Trish Stratus/Ashley Segment- Ashley says Mickie is a psycho and the crowd chants, “She’s a Psycho!”. The Spirit Squad come out and do an awful cheer yet I had to chuckle as the guy in the middle looks so goofy.
WWE Title Match: Edge vs. John Cena
2/3 Smackdown in Orlando, FL

Rey Mysterio/Randy Orton Interview/Brawl- It was only a matter of time before the WWE had someone (Orton) say something stupid like Eddie didn’t go to heaven, he went to hell. To me, that shows signs of, “we can’t get Orton over so we will use Eddie’s death to get someone some heat.

Mark Henry Int, Booker T/Sharmell/Boogeyman Int
Gregory Helms/Nunzio Int, William Regal/Paul Burchill/Palmer Cannon Int
Mark Henry and Randy Orton vs. Rey Mysterio and Kurt Angle- After the match, Orton says that the chances of Mysterio winning at Wrestlemania is about as good as Eddie coming back to life. I really don’t blame Orton but the blame has to go to Vince for giving the OK to use these lines. Mysterio puts his title shot at WM on the line against Orton at the next ppv which should make for some great drama during the match but I hope Orton doesn’t come out on top.
2/6 Raw in Atlanta, Ga

Edge/Lita/Maria/Hacksaw Jim Duggan Interview/Brawl- I’m a sucker to see old stars come back on TV. Edge attacks Duggan for calling Lita a “HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” until John Cena stops the carnage.

2/16 Thursday Night Raw in Greensboro, NC

Triple H vs. Big Show- Hard to imagine these two having a better match or brawl than this one. The only knock on this was that there was no winner as the match ends in a double count out.
Vince/Shelton’s Mamma Int, Mick Foley/Lita/Edge Int
Shelton Benjamin vs. Eugene
Ashley vs. Torrie Wilson- How did Torrie go from being the top WWF Diva a couple of years ago to getting no crowd reaction? Just let her strip all the time and she will get over again (I think I answered my own question).
Vince/Shawn Michaels Retirement Segment- With all the rumors going on the internet about Michaels not hanging with the boys and wanting a lighter schedule, I would have bet that he would sign the retirement papers, just have a match with Vince at WM 22 but thankfully, he doesn’t sign them. Let’s hope he continues to wrestle for several more years.

Rey Mysterio vs. Sylvan
Kurt Angle/Rey Mysterio/Mark Henry Int
Orlando Jordan vs. Boogeyman
Cruiserweight Title Match: Scotty Too Hotty vs. Gregory Helms- Match kinda sucked but the best part was afterwards when all the cruiserweights came down and did their finisher on Helms. I don’t see why the cruiserweight matches are so ho-hum when they should be able to do all their crazy and reckless moves like everyone wants to see. I mean, Vince is trying to keep his guys from getting hurt but as soon as a cruiserweight gets stale, he releases them when the only real advantage most cruiserweights have is their high-flying moves and other things that the big guys cant do. It makes no sense to me but then again neither does WWE’s choices of who to push sometimes.
Teddy Long/Gregory Helms Int, Paul Burchill/Ken Kennedy Int
JBL and Finlay vs. Chris Benoit and Bobby Lashley
Bret Hart Video- Bret’s going to the WWE Hall of Fame.

Spirit Squad/Vince Int
IC Title Match: Shelton Benjamin vs. Ric Flair- Shelton wins the title by smacking Flair with an air tank.
Shawn Michaels vs. The Spirit Squad- Michaels almost get the pinfall but the entire squad comes in to beat on Michaels until Marty Jannetty comes in and makes the save. My prediction is that Jannetty will come out with Michaels in the next couple of days and turn on Michaels. I do enjoy the Spirit Squad though with both their cheers and in the ring.
Carlito vs. Jobber- Carlito destroys some jobber with his “back-cracker” and then the spinning neckbreaker. Carlito is showing off some good moves lately which will help get him over and respected in the ring.
Eddie Guerrero Video- Eddie’s going into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Vince Interview- Marty Jannetty is going to get a contract next week if he joins the Vince McMahon kiss my ass club.

2/27 Raw in Washington, DC

Edge/Mick Foley Interview- As much as I wanted to listen to this, I couldn’t help but to stare at Lita’s boobs. That shirt she wears leaves very little to the imagination and she looks sexier and sexier as she gets older and I can’t say the same thing about Trish.
Tag Team Title Match: Val Venis and Viscera vs. Kane and Big Show- Anyone else notice that when Big Show is in a singles match, he tries to smile and wave to the crowd but when he comes to the ring with Kane, he acts serious?
Ric Flair Int, Shawn Michaels/Marty Jannetty Int
Carlito Int
Trevor Murdoch vs. Rob Van Dam- “Trevor’s parents just got divorced. They’re still cousins though” – Jerry Lawler.
Women’s Title Match: Candice Michelle vs. Trish Stratus
John Cena/Triple H/Vince Interview- “Sorry if I’m not afraid of the guy whose one big move is pumping up his shoes!” “You’re not a good wrestler” “A transitional champion is all you are” – Triple H just lays it out on Cena and basically is telling the truth. The crowd is on Cena big time here. Time to turn him heel, no doubt about it. Too bad they never did.
Shelton Benjamin vs. Chavo Guerrero
Mean Gene Okerlund Video, Shawn Michaels/Vince Int
Carlito vs. Ric Flair
Vince/Marty Jannetty/Chris Masters/Shawn Michaels/Shane Segment- Vince wants Marty to kiss his ass for a contract but doesn’t as Michaels makes the save. Shane then comes out to smack Michaels with a chair and forces Michaels to kiss Vince’s ass. Shane vs. Michaels at the next SNME in a few weeks!

Torrie Wilson/Victoria/Candice Michelle Interview- Victoria and Candice turn on Torrie because Torrie wouldn’t say who had the hottest playboy cover.
Shawn Michaels vs. Shane- Michaels is all drugged up so Shane has his way with Shawn and wasn’t much of a match at all.
Eugene vs. Kenny (Spirit Squad)
Lita vs. Maria- Not even Mick Foley can save this segment as this match was baaaaaad.
Sensational Sherri Highlights- Sherri Martel is going into the Hall of Fame.
Trish Stratus/Mickie James Int, Smackdown Rebound

IC Title Match: Ric Flair vs. Rob Van Dam vs. Shelton Benjamin
Edge/Mick Foley Highlights
Mick Foley Interview- Foley says that what Edge has been saying about him is all true and that the old Mick Foley, or Cactus Jack, is back. That’s nice and all, and I really think Foley is in a class by himself making people believe what he is saying but we all know he is going to lose at Wrestlemania. He spoils Edge and Lita’s “surprise” attack.
Torrie Wilson vs. Victoria- Arm Drag, Flying pillows, Widow’s peak, and that’s it.
Chris Masters vs. Big Show
Mickie James/Trish Stratus/Ashley Segment- Mickie James proves how psycho she really is here and lays a huge kiss on a fallen Trish which of course gets a big ovation from the crowd.
Wrestlemania Card Video
Triple H and Shane vs. John Cena and Shawn Michaels- Match quickly turns into…
Triple H and Shane vs. Shawn Michaels- Match was dead most of the time and for good reason. Take out Cena and Michaels is left getting a beat down, something we’ve seen for a while since Vince said he would put HBK through hell. It picks up when John Cena comes back and the faces clean house and Vince announces that next week, Cena will take on Vince.

Trish Stratus and Torrie Wilson vs. Candice Michelle and Victoria
Mickie James/Trish Stratus Highlights
Vince vs. John Cena- What a horrible and non-eventful ending to the Raw that leads into Wrestlemania. This wasn’t even a match really, it ended up just being a test of strength and after the last two months of Triple H, John Cena himself, and everyone else admitting that Cena couldn’t wrestle, they do this? This was a chance to have Cena do some actual wrestling moves and make everyone think that he was an actual wrestler who knew some moves but they blew it here. Triple H and Vince get the best of Cena and Shawn Michaels but it was only after 4 shots really; a low blow and a sledgehammer shot to the head to Cena and a sledgehammer shot to the stomach and a chair shot to Michaels and that was it. Just a bad ending to an overall lack-luster show. I already bought Wrestlemania but if my decision to get it was based on this show, I would have passed and bought the DVD when it came out while just trading for a bootleg copy until then.

Super Crazy and Psychosis vs. Kid Kash and Jamie Noble- Noble’s Smackdown return? I think so but I could be wrong.
Booker T/Sharmell/Boogey Man Segment, Wrestlemania Card Video
Rey Mysterio vs. Kurt Angle- Angle wins and Randy Orton also tapes out after a quick brawl with Angle which tells me, Mysterio will win this Sunday at Wrestlemania.
4/3 Raw in Chicago, IL, Night After Wrestlemania 22

John Cena/Triple H/Edge Interview- It’s amazing how I went from not liking Triple H to liking him again. Not only is he going against Cena but he is just ripping people right now and it was Edge’s turn to take it this time.
Tag Team Title Match: Kenny and Mikey vs. Big Show and Kane- Title Change.
Spirit Squad Int, Money in the Bank Ladder Match Highlights
Rob Van Dam Interview- Sounds like RVD is going to cash in his money in the bank title shot at One Night Stand but that’s just a guess.
Chris Masters vs. Scrub- Carlito comes out to attack Masters as it looks like Carlito is turning face which might be a great move.
Shawn Michaels/Shane/Vince Interview- Another fun Michaels interview as he mentions that the cool thing to do these days is to beat up Cena (crowd goes crazy) and so he basically says that he wants a title shot. Vince says no and that his war with Michael isn’t over with and that Michaels will be in a tag match with God as Michaels’ partner vs. Vince “and the product of ‘his’ semen, Shane”. Vince comes up with some outrageous lines sometimes.
Trish Stratus and Torrie Wilson vs. Mickie James and Candice Michelle

Chavo Guerrero Interview
IC Title Match: Chavo Guerrero vs. Shelton Benjamin- Chavo loses and says after the match that he quits.
Ric Flair/???/??? Interview Brawl- ??? comes out to interrupt Flair and then brings out some guy who is getting the name ??? for now. Not like it matters because ??? and ??? will both be gone by next years Wrestlemania after all the fans and myself show the WWE that was don’t care for guys like that. Just because someone is big doesn’t mean we will care about them. Lame looking gimmick IMO as ??? (no, not the smaller ??? but the bigger fat ass ???) looks like a Rosey/Jamal/Rikishi all rolled up into one.
Triple H/Edge Int
Edge and Triple H vs. John Cena- Edge and Triple H start brawling and Triple H pins Cena. Strange match, strange last couple of days but in a good way.

Edge/John Cena/Triple H Interview- Decent interview but not as good as last week.
Rob Conway vs. Rob Van Dam- Shelton Benjamin throws out a challenge to RVD for Backlash but Van Dam throws one back at him. Will their match be for the IC title? The Money in the Bank shot? Or both? Interesting.

John Cena Int
Vince/Shane Segment- The McMahons visit a nearby church and Vince claims that he has never been to one of these before (church).
??? vs. Scrub- Yeah, I gave The Scrub a name before “???”. Turns out “???” is Umaga, who used to be a Fatu, who used to be Jamal, who regardless of who he was, never had a fan base. He beats down this jobber and the match is over when Umaga does the DEVESTATING NECK GRAB PINCH HOLD, the move that will not only get him over but will also have everyone raving and talking about it at the water-cooler the next day… Yeah anyways, the other ??? from last week is his manager who is going under the name of Armando Alejandro Jalapeno Alfredo Tostada Estrada. That’s his whole name, I can’t believe it.

Edge/Triple/John Cena/Spirit Squad Interview- Man, Triple is getting over as a face and this time, he said nothing to the crowd to change their mind and when Cena came out, he is hearing boos even in England.
Chris Masters, Matt Striker, and Shelton Benjamin vs. Carlito, Charlie Haas, and Rob Van Dam- RVD pins Shelton which means either Shelton is going over on Sunday (on RVD) or RVD will be getting a huge push with the IC title, Money in the Bank Title shot, and 2 wins over the current IC champion.
Vince/Shane Int
Kane/Big Show Int/Backstage Segment- OK, I could easily spend a paragraph on how lame it is that Kane doesn’t want people to mention the May 19 date but instead I’m going to mention something else that is lame here (and yeah I know, by Kane not wanting people to mention May 19, that will indeed make people mention… May 19). In this segment, Kane tells Big Show not to mention it, “or else…” Big Show says, “OR else? …Or Else… May 19″ Then Kane attacks Big Show and causes his eye to bleed. Now In a situation like this, shouldn’t the Big Show be ready to defend himself when he should know that Kane would throw a punch? Instead, he takes it and gets his ass (and eye) kicked but I mean, you would think he would be ready for it. Kane just warned him not to say anything about … May 19. I don’t know, it just strikes me as weird.
Bikini Contest with Candice Michelle, Maria, Victoria, and Torrie Wilson- Coach says Candice wins and then Viscera comes out to spank Coach? ok… Hmm.
Shawn Michaels vs. Shane- Shane and Vince just move too awkwardly in the ring. I can’t wait until after the ppv and hopefully Michaels will start a feud with someone who isn’t named McMahon.
Backlash Card Hype, Kane’s See No Evil Trailer
Umaga vs. Local Scrub- Umaga looks like he is going to kill the scrub from England. Even though I don’t have to mention his name, I just want to. Umaga is managed by … Ready for it? Armando Alejandro Jalapeno Alfredo Tostada Estrada. Ric Flair attacks Umaga and grabs his balls. That’s a strange gimmick. Grab other guys’ sack? Is that his setup move now?
Lita/Edge/Triple H Int- Triple H is on fire. It’s like the good old Triple H is back with some humor and the boring one that we have had to put up with is gone.
Mickie James/Trish Stratus Interview/Brawl- I know I’m not alone when I say this, but this is the best feud currently going on Raw and I don’t say that sarcastically.
Spirit Squad vs. Triple H, Edge, and John Cena- Before the match, the cheerleaders introduce themselves. KENNY! MIKEY! MITCH! JOHNNY! TOMMY! FREDDIE! LOUIE! EDDIE! BOBBY! RALPHIE!

Umaga vs. Scrub
Candice Michelle/Vince/Triple H Int- Triple H now having problems with Vince? Hmmmm…..
Cutting Edge with Mick Foley- Foley challenges Edge to a Wrestlemania rematch later in the show. Edge says, “you’re on!” so I’m thinking wow. Then Joey Styles says “Next Week!” I’m thinking what? Is it not going to happen? “You’re on Crack” Edge says while basically canceling the match for tonight. I’m still thinking about Styles saying Next week so sure enough, Edge says that next week Foley can have any type of match that he wants. At first I thought Styles blew it and made a mistake, then I thought well maybe it’s part of the angle to get him replaced by JR. But then after watching the rest of the show, I think he jumped the gun on that “Next Week” call.
Chris Masters/Rob Van Dam/Shelton Benjamin/Carlito/Mickie Segment
Chris Masters and Shelton Benjamin vs. Rob Van Dam and Carlito- Joey Styles gets called to the back during the match.
Joey Styles/Spirit Squad Int- I thought Styles was getting fired for his sloppy commentary tonight but the Spirit Squad basically tell him that he needs more spirit.
See No Evil Trailer
Joey Styles/Jerry Lawler Interview/Segment- Announcers fighting again. I thought WCW died? Styles talks about what has happened behind the curtains since he has come into the WWE 6 months ago and brings up some great points. It is lame that they hire him but then try to mold him into someone else. He quits but will pop up later to call the ECW show that is scheduled to start up next month or so.
WWE Title Match: Kenny vs. John Cena- OK, so Shawn Michaels comes down after Triple H, who was the original referee for this match walks out and on the ramp way, they have a little stare down. People are chanting “DX DX” and I have no idea what’s going on but I am totally locked in. Triple H heads to the back and Michaels goes to the ring, helping Cena take care of the Spirit Squad and saving his title. But here is what’s strange. Both Triple H and Michaels were guest referees this show and both are now having problems with Vince. I hella (yeah, I’m from California), smell a DX reunion but when? Hopefully soon because I’m dying to see it. Oh yeah, and the numerous crotch chops that have been happening. I was really hoping Michaels would superkick Cena but the WWE is still trying to either keep Cena face and hope this phase of booing him will pass or they are just savoring this reaction, and leaving us on the edge of our seats until the day comes when he finally drops the title. I really can’t tell which option they are going with but the second option is a better idea.

IC Title Match: Chris Masters vs. Charlie Haas vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Rob Van Dam- RVD retains with a clean pinfall.
See No Evil Cast/Kane Int
Carlito vs. Matt Striker
Hardcore Match: Edge vs. Mick Foley vs. Tommy Dreamer- Foley and Edge team up to take out Dreamer and the crowd has no reaction to it at all. I know it’s to help set up the ECW return but still, it came too much out of nowhere for Foley to team up with Edge.
Mickie James vs. Maria
Umaga vs. 2 Scrubs- I’m sorry, but I just could care less about this 3 minute Warning jobber-turned-Armando Alejandro Jalapeno Alfredo Estrada Tostada’s “powerhouse”. His finishing move is even lamer than he is and because the announcers haven’t come up with a name for it, I have one. “The ultimate devastating thumb punch smash!” If I was a wrestler, I’d want to finish off my opponent with a thumb punch to the throat. A normal punch just wouldn’t cut it but once the thumb is out, it pretty much finishes someone off and there is no kicking out of it.
Kane vs. Big Show- They try to “wrestle” but when the crowd slightly starts to chant boring, Kane bashes Big Show with a chair a few times.
Spirit Squad (all 5) vs. Shawn Michaels and John Cena- Cena is getting worked most of the match and the only interesting thing about this match is when Triple H comes down and pedigrees Cena, then gives the DX chop.

5/15 Raw in Lubbock, TX

WWE Title, IC Title, Tornado Match: John Cena and Rob Van Dam vs. Triple H, Shelton Benjamin, and Chris Masters- Benjamin is the new IC champion? Not surprised. Triple H vs. Cena for the WWE title? Didn’t happen of course. All I can say is… Blah.
Trish Stratus/Mickie James/”Beth” Segment- Um, her name is Beth.
Kane’s See No Evil Premier Video- Shown twice during the show because 1) we cared that much and 2) we forgot that the movie opened this week. May what?
Triple H/Shane Int
Tag Team Title Match: Goldust and Gene Snitsky vs. Spirit Squad
Mick Foley/Terry Funk Interview- Great Segment here as I was surprised to see Funk on WWE TV again (I wasn’t expecting him until later this month). Foley mentions that Funk didn’t show up to a Raw that took place in 2003 where they honored Foley because Funk wanted too much money. Funk would go on to call Foley’s wife a whore just to get Foley to brawl with him. This will be remembered for a while as one of the segments that gets ECW going again.
Matt Striker vs. Eugene
Carlito/Maria Int, Triple H/Vince Int
Umaga vs. Scrub- Umaga wins with his “Ultimate Devastating Thumb Punch Smash” maneuver that just left this jobber helpless. I know the WWE is trying to go old school by having him demolition scrubs but this guys sucks. His manager, Armando Alejandro Jalapeno Alfredo Estrada Tostada has potential in the business but he lasts all of 10 seconds each show. Also, who did Umaga blow to get the next to last slot every week on Raw?
Smackdown Rebound, Shane/Spirit Squad Int/Cheer
Shawn Michaels vs. Kenny- Shane is guest referee and Triple H is “in Kenny’s corner”. To me, the match itself took a distant second to the hype of DX that surrounded this main event. Triple H “accidentally” hit Shane with the sledgehammer and claimed that it was an accident while Vince held Shane in his arms like he just died. It’s just a sledgehammer shot to the head, don’t overdo it, Vince. Sheesh.

Mick Foley/Edge/Paul Heyman Interview- Heyman mentions ECW One Night Stand and challenges Foley and Edge to a match with Terry Funk and Tommy Dreamer.
IC Title Match: Rob Van Dam vs. Shelton Benjamin
Vince/Triple H Interview- “I want to hear those two words” – Vince. “That’s funny, because I’ve got two words for ya… I’m sorry” – Triple H. The slow wait continues.
See No Evil Highlights/Kane Int- Kane says he’s never been happier because he was in a movie and got to kill lots of people. He then lets out an evil laugh and Jim Ross says, “Thank God he’s happy”.
WWE Title Match: Chris Masters vs. John Cena- Sign of the night, “We’ve Cena Nuff”. Management did a great job getting the crowd behind Cena again, mainly by getting Triple H away from him and let him face people that the fans don’t want to get behind. I still can’t stand Cena right now. Match was nothing but did lead to…
Rob Van Dam/John Cena Interview/Brawl- RVD comes out to cash in his Money in the Bank and challenge Cena for a title match at One Night Stand. They then brawl and when RVD is leaving, he is actually getting boos. Now while this might raise some eyebrows, this is really what the WWE wants by splitting the fans, WWE fans and ECW fans. RVD may get booed now but at the ppv, he will get major pop while Cena will get murdered by the hot crowd.
Maria/Carlito/Goldust/Gene Snitsky Segment- Snitsky mentions that he killed Kane’s fetus “but we’re over that now” and he says it like it’s no big deal. Funny.

DX/Coach Segment- “That looks like an awesome ppv. You gonna get it? Ya gonna buy it? You gonna get it? You gonna buy it?” – Michaels. I loved that part as well as Michaels spraying the green paint like it was cologne. Looks like some of DX’s humor will be like it was the first time around, some parts you just have to watch for because it’s either funny or you didn’t catch it.
Highlanders Promo
Edge vs. Ric Flair- Total crap match.
DX Reunion Segment- DX “officially” makes their re-debut here and have some fun with The Spirit Squad. The Brunette Cheerleader that Triple H brought out was hot as Michaels puts on a blindfold, “not to be tempted”. Some good stuff here and throughout the show but I could have done without the midgets, which has been played out too many times (although I think DX started it). Also, don’t look for Michaels to make sexual innuendos because of his Christianity beliefs but I think he can still pull off some funny moments.

DX Segment- DX is in the parking lot having a BBQ. Shawn Michaels looked hesitant to hold up the hot dogs as Triple H made references to the male organ.
Highlanders vs. Matt Striker and Rob Conway- Highlanders make their WWE debut. Raw finally has a tag team which brings their tag team total to ..(/raise my index finger/).. one.
Triple H/Candice Michelle Segment- lol. I can’t help but to think what Shawn Michaels is thinking when Triple H is doing stuff like this (getting a BJ while talking to Candice who is also getting one/or something like it), even if he isn’t in the actually segment.
DX/Vince/Coach Interviews/Segments- DX is running the production truck. The main interview with Vince had some funny parts but seemed to drag on a bit. May have been funnier to the newer viewers but those who remember the old days will probably be like me thinking, it feels like they are holding back on what DX can do because of Michaels’ faith. You’ll never see me knock HBK for his Christianity, especially because I actually applaud him for him. It’s amazing how someone can turn their life around the drastically but part of me will feel, if they can’t do the DX gig right, don’t do it at all. But the other part does agree with how the crowd is generally acting. Some of it is funny and is still a nice change of pace so it’s not all bad.
IC Title Match: Carlito vs. Johnny Nitro- I would love to see a real match between these two but there was a funny part at the end. With DX still in the truck, replays of the match aren’t shown but they show, rewind, show again, repeat Trish Stratus running down to the ring with her boobs flopping up and down. That was worth a good chuckle.
Diva Search Segment
Umaga vs. Scrub- DX plays pranks on Umaga and Armando Alejandro Jalapeno Alfredo Estrada Tostada from the truck. Maybe Vince and Co. are realizing that nobody cares about Umaga’s squashes and that he needs to give him some rub from someone before it’s too late.
DX/Vince Segment, Randy Orton Int, Edge Int
WWE Title Match: Edge vs. John Cena vs. Rob Van Dam- As predicted from RVD’s drub problems, he loses his title here to Edge so no matter if the show was good or bad, it was memorable due to an extremely rare WWE Title change on Raw.

He also showed that his Christian turn can be funny as well when he mentioned that he lied about saying that Stephanie was in labor a few weeks ago, then looked up and whispered his apologies to God. Good stuff here and was refreshing to see.

Mick Foley Interview- Am I the only one who is enjoying these Foley interviews? Talk about intense.
Ric Flair/Edge Interview
Carlito/Trish Stratus Int, Edge/Coach Int
Shelton Benjamin vs. Carlito- Match started out hot but cooled down near the end. Still, these two would be great on ppv. Too bad the WWE doesn’t believe in good matches on TV anymore.
Hulk Hogan/Randy Orton Interview
Candice Michelle vs. Mickie James
Shawn Michaels vs. Coach- Umaga does what the Spirit Squad can’t do, and that’s put Michaels down.
John Cena Int- Only the best of the best speakers in wrestling history could pull off this kind of interview.
Diva Search Segment- Rebecca is looking cuter and cuter each week and Layla annoys me more and more each time I see her.

Vince/Shane/DX Interview
IC Title Match: Shelton Benjamin vs. Carlito vs. Johnny Nitro- About Carlito’s hair, “I didn’t know Supercuts had a drive through window.” – Jerry Lawler. Funny line.
Randy Orton Segment- “Orton Knows Best” Segment where he has people dresses up like Hogan’s family and says nothing that has any meaning to it. Lame.
Vince/Shane Armando Alejandro Estrada Int
Trish Stratus and Candice Michelle vs. Mickie James and Victoria
Mike Foley/Melina/Ric Flair Interview- Some say they don’t like these interviews because they are over the top. I totally disagree and it’s an intensity that we are not used to seeing. I love it and it’s going to be one of my top matches that I want to see at SummerSlam because I think Foley is right, he does have some good matches left in him and you never know when it’s going to happen.
Matt Striker vs. John Cena- Jim Ross says something like, “Whether you love him or hate you him, that’s your call folks. Exercise that first amendment right. Express yourself anyway you’d want”. BULLSHIT!!! Anytime someone beings a negative sign, especially toward Cena, security takes it away. Total bullshit.
Johnny vs. Rory McAllister
Diva Search Segment- Rebecca is voted off. She was hot but because I didn’t give a damn about this, I didn’t care. I almost did but not quite.
Shawn Michaels vs. Umaga
8/4 Smackdown from the Continental Airlines in New Jersey

US Title Match: William Regal vs. Finlay

King Booker/Batista Interview
8/21 Raw in Bridgeport, CT, Night After SummerSlam One of the best Raws of the year.

Edge/Lita Interview- Lita throws out Cena’s belt into the river and then Edge debuts his belt… that looks just like Cena’s but with a Rater R logo spinning in the middle of it. Bah. What is this, everyone gets personalized belts? Retarded. Jeff Hardy makes his return by stepping up to Edge’s challenge and chases him off. Good to see Jeff again but I think after a few jobs, he will be in ECW, where he actually would fit better into I think.
Spirit Squad vs. Highlanders, Eugene, and Hacksaw Jim Duggan
Coach/Edge/Vince/Shane Int
Randy Orton/Carlito Int- Good segment by Orton. He seemed like a legit asshole and tough guy.
DX Interview- This clip had some funny parts to it. It didn’t seem too long which has been a problem with DX spots but this was fairly quick and effective.
Trish Stratus vs. Victoria
Vince/Shane/DX Interview/Segment
Vince/Mick Foley Int
Edge vs. Jeff Hardy- Bad news and good news. Good news was that the match was good, JR explained some of Hardy’s past with Lita, and that Hardy didn’t job. Bad News is that the ending was lame with Lita pulling out Edge to end the match in a DQ and John Cena ends the segment by brawling with Edge which doesn’t give Jeff much of an outro to this segment but oh well. It’s nice to have Jeff back.
Edge/John Cena Brawl
Melina/Mick Foley Int
IC Title Match: Kane vs. Johnny Nitro- Umaga attacks Kane and puts his thumb to Kane’s neck a couple of times.
The Marine Movie Trailer- Mas more potential than See No Evil did but that might not be saying much.
Randy Orton vs. Ric Flair
Vince/Mick Foley/Melina Segment- Foley kisses Vince’s ass to save Melina’s job but after, Melina turns on Foley and then they fire him.
Vince/Shane Segment- As the McMahons take off in their limo, the back tires and axle come off as the DX logo is spray painted on the side of the car.
8/25 Smackdown in, Show After SummerSlam

Vito vs. Sylvan- After the match, Vito calls out MVP to get in the ring, who is sitting in the front row. Montel Vonsomethingous Porter gets to the steps, answers his phone, then says that he can’t brawl because he doesn’t have a contract yet. I like where this MVP character is going so far.

Shane/John Cena/Edge Interview
John Cena vs. Chris Masters- Masters returns from his time off and gets DQ’d when Edge runs into to attack Cena and tell him that they will meet at the next ppv in a TLC match.
Shane/Vince Int
Carlito/Trish Stratus Int- The first mention here that Trish is retiring from WWE.
Paddle on a Pole Match: Torrie Wilson vs. Candice Michelle
Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton- Thanks to Carlito, Hardy pins Orton to become the number one contender to the IC title.
DX/Shane Int- Shawn Michaels shamelessly plugs Vince’s DVD.
The Marine Segment
Tag Team Title Match: Hacksaw Jim Duggan and Eugene vs. Spirit Squad- Umaga comes out to attack the faces and then Armando Alejandro Jalapeno Alfredo Estrada Tostada cuts a quick promo on Kane. Umaga could get even more heat and reaction if Estrada does more mic work.
Women’s Title Match: Mickie James- Out of all the wrestling that I have ever seen, of all the comments that I have made about past divas, Mickie James is by far, the hottest of them all in my eyes. She has the perfect body (sorry, I don’t like sticks), seems to have a fun personality, is so damn incredibly sexy. Kenny from the Spirit Squad is the luckiest man alive.
Johnny Nitro/Melina Interview- Nitro may not be the best on the mic, but these two need to do more promos (like Umaga/Estrada and despite what some people thought of the promo) and they could get lots of heat as well.
DX vs. Mr. Kennedy, William Regal, and Finlay- Vince and Shane send out the Big Show to help and after DX is “bloodied and battered”, Vince announces that he and Shane will have a rematch with DX while adding Big show on the McMahon’s side in Hell in a Cell. I’m as tired of this feud as anyone but this works for me, makes me want to buy the ppv, and SHOULD be the end of the feud, finally.

IC Title Match: Jeff Hardy vs. Johnny Nitro- I’m sure these two can do better but the match was still good. Melina causes the DQ to save the title for Nitro.
Trish Stratus/Lita Int, The Marine Segment
Super Crazy vs. Chris Masters- I don’t know why they don’t send Super Crazy to ECW where people will appreciate him more. He does pick up the win here however which leaves me to wonder what they plan on doing with Masters.
DX/McMahons Highlights
Big Show/Vince/Shane/DX Interview- No jokes by DX as they run in to attack McMahon’s security. I’m really interested to see what DX will do once (and if ever) DX is done feuding with Vince.

Mike Mizanin vs. Matt Hardy- I didn’t think The Miz could get anymore annoying but it can be done as he proves here.
Jimmy Wang Yang Promo
Chavo Guerrero vs. Tatanka
MVP/Teddy Long Segment- MVP must be liked by Vince as he always seems to get the spot every week before the main event. Here, all he wants is just one more dollar than Cena is getting. Just pay him the same but add one more dollar.
World Heavyweight Title Match: Batista vs. King Booker
9/11 Raw in New York, NY (MSG)

Ric Flair vs. Umaga- Match is a waste and was used more to set up a Umaga brawl with Kane.

Rowdy Roddy Piper/Highlanders Segment- It’s always fun to see Piper as he has a fun moment here with the Highlanders.
Highlanders and Rowdy Roddy Piper vs. Mikey, Kenny, and Johnny
Johnny Nitro/Melina/Jeff Hardy Int, Segment
Edge Interview
Edge, Randy Orton, and Johnny Nitro vs. Jeff Hardy, Carlito, and John Cena- Wow, what a hot crowd for this one. Lots of crowd chants like “Let’s go Cena, Cena Sucks” and “Go to Smackdown, Stay on Raw”. Loud chants always makes a match better.
Cryme Tyme Promo- It’s so wrong but kinda funny.
Chris Masters vs. Super Crazy- Masters loses again as he is going nowhere fast.
Smackdown Rebound
Trish Stratus vs. Mickie James- Trish’s last match on Raw.
Unforgiven Card Video
Vince vs. Triple H- Wow, this really killed would was a really good show. Vince and his crew attack DX before the match and the crowd sits as quietly during this “match” as much as a New York crowd can. Funny how Vince doesn’t allow all ECW matches to be No DQ but yet all his matches are no DQ in some form or another.
9/15 Smackdown in Worcester, MA

Finlay/Bobby Lashley Interview- Yes, they give these two a real interview which I can’t understand why. Lashley says 10 words here but it’s 10 words too many. Luckily someone with some real mic ability, Teddy Long comes out to “save” the segment.

PSP Commercial- This has nothing to do with Smackdown but I recorded it because it’s one of my favorite commercials. A little patch of grass is talking to a bird about the PSP and asks how do you entertain yourself when you’re on the road? Bird chirps twice and the grass ball says, “You poop on people’s heads! That does sound pretty entertaining!” Haha I love it.

Candice Michelle vs. Lita
Lance Cade, Trevor Murdoch, and Edge vs. John Cena, Triple H, and Shawn Michaels- A DQ finish. Why? Why not have someone just pin one of the scrubs on Edge’s team? Do they really plan on pushing them?

Rey Mysterio vs. Chavo Guerrero- Match ended quickly and turned into a brawl. Good brawl which was what this tired out feud needed to give it a little more run.
Tag Team Title Match: Pitbulls vs. Idol Stevens and KC James vs. Paul London and Brian Kendrick
Elijah Burke/Sylvester Terkay Int- Elijah – “This is Sylvester Terkay!” Sylvester – “I am Sylvester Terkay!” Thanks Terkay but we need a little more than that.
Sylvan vs. Tatanka- Crowd goes crazy from Sylvan. Why… because he’s from your city?? This guy is a scrub all the way. I’m not a fan of New York but people in New York don’t give a shit if you are from NY or not. If you suck, you suck. Sylvan comes out saying something in Canadian or French or something and JBL says “What did he just say? I surrender?” Lol, that’s funny. JBL also says during the match, “that’s a shock, he hasn’t surrendered yet!” JBL was awesome during this.
John Cena/Teddy Long Int, No Mercy Card Video
Undertaker vs. King Booker- Solid showing by these two and having Ken Kennedy at ringside was good too. Funny scene when Booker tries to escape (“Escape is not his plan!” … sorry couldn’t help it) but Bobby Lashley throws Booker back into the ring.. Booker slides right into the Undertaker who pops up and Booker has this look on his face. Good Show with Smackdown heading in the right direction.
9/25 Raw in Oklahoma City, OK

Lita vs. Candice Michelle- Match was nothing but was strange because the power went out during the first segment.
John Cena/Edge/Lita Interview
IC Title Match: Kane vs. Johnny Nitro- Again, not much of a match as it was mostly used to set up a brawl with Kane and Umaga.
Shelton Benjamin/Coach/Jeff Hardy/Edge/Lita Int
Ric Flair vs. Mikey
Gauntlet Match: DX vs. Highlanders, Viscera and Charlie Haas, and Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch- None of these teams are in the same league as DX and were treated as such. Makes the tag division look even weaker which further pushes my theory that DX should be the tag team champions.
Cryme Tyme Promo
Shelton Benjamin vs. Jeff Hardy- I expect more from these two. Maybe they are saving this for ppv.
Marine Trailer
Randy Orton and Chris Masters vs. Super Crazy and Carlito
Eric Bischoff Interview- Bischoff plugs his book. Why did they fire him as GM?
John Cena vs. Lita- Once more, no much of anything but a beat down of Cena by some Smackdown guys who make Cena kiss King Booker’s feet. What a lame ending and show, especially when all the matches were just so awful. Only good out of this messy ending was Edge announcing this his rematch for the title will come next week. I’m surprised they didn’t save this for their 3 hour special in 2 weeks. Smackdown from 3 days ago blew this show away.

Finlay vs. King Booker- Finlay beats the champ here.
Batista vs. Bobby Lashley- Good energy from the crowd for this one. There’s something about seeing to big men go at it but once it happens, the match is always weak. This wasn’t much of a match as Finlay gets involved and Teddy Long makes a tag match for later in the show.
Bobby Lashley/King Booker/Teddy Long/Finlay/Batista Int
Sylvan vs. Jimmy Wang Yang- Wang loses again to the Jobber of Quebec.
MVP Interview- Crowd chants what during the promo. If the WWE was smart, they should try to capitalize on that and have Austin come out, cut a promo with MVP and you will have what chants every time MVP tries to speak. Will make great television and will help get MVP over even more

Kane/Highlanders Int/Brawl
DX Int/Promo- I don’t care what Wade Keller or any other DX hater says about DX, they crack me up. Let’s face it, if you like HBK or Hunter, you like DX but if you don’t like either one, then you hate them but this stuff is silly, just like the old DX which makes it funny.

Cutting Edge with Randy Orton- Orton and Edge form an alliance to take out DX. They should add Chris Masters as a bodyguard type and pull Kenny from the Geek squad and they would have a young, talented stable that could do some damage.
John Cena vs. Undertaker- We go Nitro here and end a big night with a lame DQ.

Melina/Johnny Nitro Int, The Marine Trailer
King Booker/Sharmell/Coach/Cryme Tyme Int- Haha funny. I was one of the first people to roll my eyes at the first Cryme Tyme promo because it was super ghetto but I can see them getting over big. Good segment here with King Bookah who claims that he doesn’t speak Ebonics.
IC Title Match: Chris Masters vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Super Crazy vs. Jeff Hardy

Melina/Johnny Nitro/Kevin Federline/John Cena/Vince Interview/Segment- This segment could have been huge. I was hoping for a battle rap with Cena and Federline but it didn’t happen.
Carlito vs. Rob Conway
Umaga Segment- He beats up two guys from Jackass 2. Segment was lame because as Umaga leaves, you see one of them getting up on his own. You would think they would have had them sell Umaga’s attacks more.

Triple H vs. Randy Orton- Rubber match between the two. Edge was supposed to be the referee but Triple H takes him out before the match starts. Triple H ends up going over both guys here which doesn’t make sense. Shouldn’t Triple H get beat down here because he is outnumbered? The only way this makes any kind of booking sense is if Orton and Edge go over DX at the ppv and if they don’t, this feud might as well end because DX comes out on top every time.
Umaga vs. Hacksaw Jim Duggan
Ric Flair/Sgt. Slaughter/Rowdy Roddy Piper/Dusty Rhodes Interview
Cryme Tyme vs. Viscera and Charlie Haas- Cryme Tyme is going to get over quickly.
Triple H Int, Coach/King Booker/Big Show Int
Coach vs. John Cena- Man O Man, remember when the main events of Raw was Steve Austin vs. Undertaker? Or Rock vs. Kurt Angle? Or even just a few years back when it was Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Benoit or Triple H vs. Chris Jericho? These matches were a solid 10-15 minutes and now fast forward to 2006 and this is our main event that goes 2 minutes? And the sad thing is, we, the stupid WWE fans voted for this match! We would rather have a lame ass comedy match (if you want to call it that) with Coach vs. Cena than at least have Cena face Booker T, someone who can at least wrestle a match. By us voting this in, Vince will have even more reasoning to book shit for the main event and this isn’t just a lately thing, this has been the last 2 years. All of a sudden, Vince doesn’t want to give away good matches on TV so we get all the crap matches on TV and if you want a decent wrestling match, you have to now pay $40 for it. This is so frustrating for me and if it doesn’t turn around soon, I’ll finally have my reason to stop recording TV, because I won’t need to watch it. I’ve done it twice before and I will certainly do it again. This shit just sucks and anyone who knows me even just via emails or checking out my site knows that I am a WWE mark all the way but something has got to happen soon and the company needs to go in another direction. Suddenly, 2001-2003, the years that have been ripped hard by smart marks don’t look so bad (and personally, I thought those years had some really good stuff).
11/3 Smackdown in Milwaukee, WI

Rey Mysterio/Chavo Guerrero Interview- This segment was good but it didn’t make sense for Mysterio to stay in the ring as he sees Chavo coming to the ring. It makes Rey look stupid for staying in there. Secondly, when Chris Benoit comes out, he should have chased Chavo around the building like he wants to kill him, not just chase him out of the ring and that’s it.
KC James and Idol Stevens vs. Paul London and Brian Kendrick
King Booker/Teddy Long Int, Marine Trailer
Batista/King Booker Int
MVP/Mr. Kennedy Int- Doubt this was E’s objective, but this segment helped Kennedy but helped bury MVP. Kennedy looked into it and focused while MVP looked like he was brushing off their match. In the E world, you don’t brush off Undertaker or Kane, let alone together.
MVP and Mr. Kennedy vs. Undertaker and Kane
King Booker/Batista Int
Gregory Helms vs. Jimmy Wang Yang- Yang loses again. Unless they have a good storyline for all this losing such as a love-able loser that finally wins angle, this is retarded. For the last several months, they have hyped guys yet when they show up, the end up losing; Like Yang, Shannon Moor, Renee Dupree, Highlanders, etc. It makes no sense at all and adds to my frustrations of trying to figure out what the hell they are doing.
Miz and Krystal vs. Vito and Layla- Boogeyman makes his presence felt after. I don’t mind the Boogeyman character as long as he doesn’t wrestle (because he sucks in the ring) and just makes occasional appearance.
Bobby Lashley vs. Jamie Noble- 30 second job. The firing of Kid Kash pretty much sealed up the fate for Jamie Noble as well. Tatanka comes out to call out spirits of his people to wake him up, or something like that. Crowd does the What chant near the end. Exactly. Once of those interviews where it’s English but I still need a translation.

11/6 Raw in Thee Ohio State University, Night After Cyber Sunday

Edge/Randy Orton/Eric Bischoff/Ric Flair/Rowdy Piper Interview- The DVD at the beginning of this show skips a little bit and clears up right before Edge and Orton start the interview.
John Cena Highlights
IC Title Match: Johnny Nitro vs. Jeff Hardy- Nitro wins but this title change makes no sense whatsoever.
Eric Bischoff/Spirit Squad/Eugene/Coach/Maria Int
Kevin Federline Int- Obviously it was pre-recorded because K-Fed paused several times where people were supposed to boo but didn’t yet he still let the pause continue.
Spirit Squad vs. Eugene and Hacksaw Jim Duggan
Maria vs. Umaga
John Cena Interview
Lita/Eric Bischoff Int, Carlito/Shelton Benjamin Int
Carlito vs. Shelton Benjamin- Like all the other matches this night (and the last year or so on Raw), this one was a dub but at least was watchable with Cryme Tyme at the announce table.
Women’s Title Match: Mickie James vs. Lita
Tag Team Title Match: Edge and Randy Orton vs. Ric Flair and Rowdy Roddy Piper- Coach gave away the ending of the match when he said we would have new tag team champions before the match which basically meant, the titles weren’t going anywhere. DX come out to stick Eric Bischoff up the DX stripper’s ass and the crowd can’t really cheer for it because no one wants to see this. I could go on and on about what a dud this show was like I did after last week’s show but why bother. Vince has lost sight of what the fans want, it’s that simple and the dead crowd tonight proved it. They didn’t pop for anything, never had a chance to.

John Cena vs. Umaga- Crowd was into it but Big Show comes out to kill the buzz.
DX/Coach Int
IC Title Match: Jeff Hardy vs. Johnny Nitro- Hardy wins the title back (so why did it change in the first place last week) and we finally get a decent wrestling match on TV. Ladder match from these two next week?
Cryme Tyme/DX Int, Carlito/Torrie Wilson Int, Survivor Series Video Card
Women’s Title Match: Mickie James vs. Lita- Mickie wins the title but this should have waited until Survivor Series. DX do their antics at ringside.
Tag Team Title Match: Edge and Randy Orton vs. Ric Flair and Rowdy Roddy Piper- Another title change. This should have happened last week.

Boogeyman vs. The Miz

Teddy Long/Kane Int, Undertaker/Mr. Kennedy Highlights, Mr. Kennedy Int
Paul London vs. William Regal- For the time given, it was a good match with Regal showing a lot of offense and the story wasn’t bad with London going for a splash but went through the ropes and knocked over Ashley at ringside.
Teddy Long/Bobby Lashley Int
Street Fight: MVP vs. Kane- “Right now he looks like a cross between Barney and Captain Kirk” – JBL on MVP. Not too bad of a street Fight with Mr. Kennedy and Undertaker getting involved at the end.

Big Interview- All the teams and Vince McMahon come out and cut a small promo to hype up Survivor Series.
Umaga vs. Sabu
Torrie Wilson/Chris Masters/Carlito Segment
Melina/Johnny Nitro Int, Spirit Squad/Ric Flair/Ron Simmons Int
IC Title, Ladder Match: Johnny Nitro vs. Jeff Hardy- Not bad. Nothing spectacular but sure beats the semi-main events that we have had to suffer through lately.
Nicky vs. Dusty Rhodes
Cryme Tyme/Edge/Randy Orton Int
Women’s Title Match: Mickie James vs. Lita- This week, Mickie is blindfolded. Lita then rants and says that Survivor Series will be her final match. Her in-ring work was getting crazy anyways so who cares.
Randy Orton, Edge, Big Show, and Kenny vs. Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Ric Flair, and John Cena- I thought Vince said earlier in the night that this would be a night that we would never forget? What are we supposed to remember about it exactly? Lita’s retirement announcement? Umaga squashing Sabu? Rehashing a Carlito/Masters feud because they have nothing to do for these two? Yes the Nitro/Hardy match was ok but not unforgettable. If Vince is going to throw that line out there, he needs to come through.

11/27 Raw in Pittsburgh, PA, Night After Survivor Series

Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H vs. Spirit Squad- Match was better than I thought it would be and the SS finally did a cheer! It was a good moment for Ric Flair who started getting emotional at the end.
DX Segment- They send the Spirit Squad back to OVW.
Hardy Boys Video- Various videos are shown throughout the show of The Hardys, including their own homemade videos, their debut as a tag team in 98 on Heat, and others.
MNM Int- Joey Mercury is back and they will take on the Hardy Boys at the ECW ppv.
Women Battle Royal- Victoria wins which will put two of the better women “wrestlers” errrrr superstars together. Victoria was the right choice.
Eugene vs. Hacksaw Jim Duggan- “Don’t make fun of me! I’m special!” So they finally follow up on his heel turn. It’s like the writers and Vince have A.D.D. and can’t focus on anything other than the main eventers.
DX/Dusty Rhodes Int
Edge/Randy Orton/Ric Flair Segment- Orton and Edge drag out a bloodied Flair and attack him with conchairtos. Pretty intense.
Umaga/Estrada/John Cena Interview
Chris Masters vs. Jerry Lawler
Cryme Tyme Segment, Hardys/Edge/Randy Orton Int
Tag Team Title Match: Hardy Boys vs. Edge and Randy Orton- Not too shabby but they go with the DQ to protect both teams. Wrestling wise, the night wasn’t that good (which has been the norm in the last year or so) but story wise, a lot went on today so the show was a step up from the last several months.
12/1 Smackdown in Buffalo, NY

Teddy Long/Batista/King Booker/Finlay Interview- Batista should be ashamed of himself for the punch-punch-kick fest he put on with Booker T at Survivor Series.

12/4 Raw in Charleston, SC

John Cena/Melina/Coach Interview- Cena gets in some lines that finally weren’t too corny, although he probably should have cut back on a joke or two here. Still, not bad. When I think of the other two champions, Batista and Bobby Lashley (I don’t want to get started on that), they are all big muscle guys but at least Cena can do a promo.
Randy Orton/Edge/Kenny Int- Kenny wants to be part of Rated RKO but he is told to prove himself… interesting but good.
Highlanders vs. Garrison Cade and Trevor Murdoch
Victoria vs. Maria
Cryme Tyme Segment, Shelton Benjamin/Super Crazy Int
Shelton Benjamin vs. Super Crazy- Charlie Haas comes out to get super excited about a win by Shelton. I’m all for these two getting back together but kind of a strange way to start it.
WWE Title, Masterlock Challenge with John Cena- After Cena gets out of it and knocks out Masters with the Full-Nelson, Umaga comes out to brawl with Cena.
Viscera/Torrie Wilson/Carlito Int
Shawn Michaels Int
Carlito vs. Viscera
Coach/John Cena/AAE Int, Val Venis/Eugene Segment
Edge, Randy Orton, Joey Mercury, and Johnny Nitro vs. DX and The Hardy Boys- Match was fine but DX squashing Kenny made no sense. I hope they still decide to put Kenny with Orton and Edge but I’m not so sure now. An okay show which in the last several months means that its great but in reality, it isn’t.

Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas vs. Highlanders- The World’s Greatest Tag Team is back together and pretty much bury the Highlanders
Triple H vs. Edge- Scratch that, let’s make it…
Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Ric Flair vs. Edge, Randy Orton, and Kenny- Flair pins Kenny. I’m not sure why DX needs more momentum against Edge and Orton.

Matt Hardy vs. Joey Mercury
MVP/Mr. Kennedy Int
MVP and Mr. Kennedy vs. Undertaker and Kane- After the match was good. Kennedy wants to run over Kane with the hearse but the lights go out and when they come back on, Undertaker is just sitting in the passenger seat as if he is waiting to go somewhere. Kennedy bails and as he and MVP turn around, Kane sits up.
Chavo Guerrero vs. Funaki- Man, has Chavo been played out lately or what?
Vito vs. Sylvan
The Miz/Krystal Segment
Finlay vs. John Cena
12/18 Raw in Washington, DC, Approx Time: 2:15 hr

30 Man Battle Royal- Won by Edge who eliminated Shawn Michaels. Edge will get to face John Cena at the end of the show for the title. Of course I was pulling for Michaels to win because I still hope he wins the title one more time before he calls it quits but Edge stays on the outside for a lot of the match and gets a cheap win.
Edge/Randy Orton Int, Chris Masters Int
Chris Masters/Carlito Brawl

Sylvester Stallone Interview
Ric Flair vs. Kenny Dykstra- I’m going to have to get used to the last name of Dykstra. Kenny wins and leaves Flair in the ring after Flair extended his hand.
WWE Title Match: Edge vs. John Cena- Crowd was into it. There was a small feeling that Edge might win but it didn’t happen.
“George Bush”/Cryme Tyme Segment- Boy, did this segment fall flat. What was the point of this?
Victoria vs. Mickie James
Kevin Federline Interview
Edge, Randy Orton, and Umaga vs. Shawn Michaels, Triple H, and John Cena- Edge and Orton get the best of DX and leave them bloody as the show ends. Most people including myself have been waiting for this to happen for a while because it finally shows that Edge and Orton are a threat to DX.
