Vicky/Rey Mysterio/Edge/Chavo Guerrero Interview- Vicky and Rey finally have an interview together about Vicky being with Edge and they even mention Eddie Guerrero. I can’t believe I’m saying this… but…. ah… (this is going to hurt)…. but I think …. I’m actually coming around on Vicky. She can be funny at times.
Chuck Palumbo vs. Jamie Noble- With Michelle McCool in the mix, they might swap Palumbo and Noble in he heel-face roll at the same time.
Vicky/Edge Int

Chavo Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio- Due to a friend coming over and getting hooked on Street Fighter vs. Xmen, I butchered the last match a little bit. Coming back from the last break, I’m missing a few minutes and I’m missing the last couple of minutes of the match and show.

Vince/Randy Orton/Jeff Hardy Interview- Not too bad of a show but the visuals in High Definition were fantastic. Too bad I can’t record in HD… yet.
1/25/08 Smackdown in the University of Virginia, First Smackdown in HD, new set, Approx Time: 1:28 hr

Rey Mysterio vs. Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder
Jesse Int- Where have these guys been?
Domino vs. Jimmy Wang Yang
Chuck Palumbo/Jamie Noble Int
Chuck Palumbo, Jamie Noble, and Michelle McCool vs. John Morrison, Miz, and Layla- Wow, a really good segment here to turn Noble face and Palumbo heel, where Palumbo attacked Noble non-stop who was looking after an injured Michelle McCool. A little bit of overacting but despite the very small complaint, a very well done segment to get people into this storyline. I’m just hoping they go somewhere with this and don’t just let it die cuz Palumbo has a chance to be a monster heel and Noble the sympathetic babyface.
MVP/Ric Flair Interview- MVP shows some pretty funny pictures, fictional of course, of his and Flair’s “future”.
Finlay vs. Great Khali
Batista Interview
Big Daddy V vs. Undertaker- Undertaker finishes Big Daddy V with a move similar to the Triangle choke but the cool part was the visual of V leaving with Mark Henry helping him walk out with a bloody mouth. You never see that much in wrestling but you figure after a fight, someone is leaving with a bloody face so it made it look more realistic.
Royal Rumble History Video- This should have been shown on Raw. Good statistics and a reminder of how prestigious the Royal Rumble match really is.
Royal Rumble Card Video
CM Punk vs. Edge- Hey WWE, please let this draw out to a feud??? This is sooo money, especially for us fans who love a good mix of characters, mic work, and great wrestling. Rey Mysterio does commentary for this match.

Shawn Michaels, Jeff Hardy, and Chris Jericho vs. Snitsky, Umaga, and JBL
Arm Wrestling Match: Mark Henry vs. John Cena
2/8/08 Smackdown in Corpus Christi, TX, Approx Time: 1:28 hr

Batista/MVP/Matt Striker/Big Daddy V/Great Khali/Finlay/Undertaker Interview- I understand the basic booking that comes with bringing everyone out one by one and everyone saying that they’re going to win but we just saw this on Raw. Once is common sense booking, the second time in the same week is just plain lazy. Couldn’t they think of some other way to hype it? Apparently not.
Kane vs. Shelton Benjamin
Chuck Palumbo vs. Jamie Noble- Palumbo wins the match but goes on a 5 minute tirade on Noble after the match.
Jesse and Festus vs. Deuce and Domino- Finally, Jesse and Festus return.
Cutting Edge with Vicky Guerrero/Rey Mysterio- There’s just something about wheelchairs that works with a heel, just like Vince in 98, Angle in 04, Vicky in 08, and I’m sure there is one more person I’m missing. It’s funny because faces use crutches and are looked at as being tough, like “they’re still standing” but heels use wheelchairs and they are looked at as being pathetic. I still can’t believe I’ve come around on Vicky. The two slaps to Mysterio had me busting up, as well as Edge’s “Te Quiero” line to Vicky.
No Way Out Card Video, Raw Rebound, Edge Int
Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder vs. Jimmy Wang Yang and Shannon Moore
Big Daddy V, Great Khali, and MVP vs. Batista, Undertaker, and Finlay- Again, another rehash of what they did on Raw. What makes it worse is that they didn’t even hype this match during the show. Just plain lazy…
2/11/08 Raw in Austin, TX, Approx Time: 1:32 hr

Hornswoggle/Vince/Finlay Segment
JBL vs. Chris Jericho
Vince/William Regal Int
Paul Burchill vs. Brian Kendrick- Burchill returns with his “sister”, Katie Lea. Personally, I liked his pirate gimmick better and they should have stuck with that. It was getting him over.
John Cena vs. Mark Henry- Randy Orton does commentary and then after the match, Cena gets on the stick and cuts a promo on Orton.
Mr. Kennedy/Ric Flair Interview- I’ve been your champion, 16 times. I know you respect that cause that’s what you want to be, once” – Flair. Nice comment and good segment.
Maria vs. Melina
Santino Marella/Maria Interview
Shawn Michaels vs. Jeff Hardy- WOW, what a ppv-quality match! An easy **** start match. Started hot, slowed down in the middle but finished hot again. Loved it.

Triple H/Randy Orton/John Cena/William Regal Interview
Jeff Hardy vs. Snitsky
Shawn Michaels Interview- HBK announces that Ric Flair will be going into the Hall of Fame.
Paul Burchill vs. Super Crazy
Big Show/Floyd Mayweather Interview/Segment- Big Show returns to Raw but this segment didn’t do anything for me. They have about 5 weeks to make me give a damn about this conflict but after week one, I’m not interested. It’s another big vs. small guy but if Mayweather going to keep running with his crew, he’s going to come off as the heel, which doesn’t seem to be where the E wants him. He’s already drawing major boo from this Cali crowd.
Mr. Kennedy vs. Val Venis- Kennedy’s entrance song gets a remix but it sucks ass.
Steel Cage Segment- Sorry, I can’t call this a match. It was supposed to be Vince vs. Hornswoggle but it was lame with JBL and Finlay being too involved. Complete waste of time.
Maria vs. Beth Phoenix- Maria wins so she will be posing for playboy! …… This was stupid. This show is getting worse and worse by each segment.
Randy Orton vs. John Cena- Triple H is the guest referee for this match but this show sucked too much for me to give a shit about it.

Casket Match: Mark Henry vs. Undertaker
Triple H Int
Finlay/Mr. Kennedy/JBL Segment/Brawl
IC Title Match: Chris Jericho vs. Jeff Hardy- Crowd was HOT for the ending as Jericho wins the IC title for a record setting, 8th time. Time for Jeff to serve another drug suspension… He is becoming his own worst enemy.
Iron Sheik/Nikolai Volkoff/Mike Rotunda/Barry Windham/Jillian Hall Segment- Not to sound like a pig but… Jillian’s cleavage looks nice in HD.
Brisco Brothers Hall of Fame Highlights
Kane/Randy Orton Int
Triple H vs. Kane
John Cena Int
Maria vs. Melina
Floyd Mayweather Video- Showing off Mayweather’s house and money seemed like more of a tactic to get him over as a heel than a face.
Big Show/Floyd Mayweather Weigh In Segment- And this segment puts “Money Mayweather” in the heel position even more. Crowd goes nuts for Big Show after he tosses Mayweather outside of the ring at the end.
Wrestlemania Card Video, Randy Orton Int
Edge vs. CM Punk- Edge wins, which is understandable going into WM, but match should have went longer, at least 2 segments long. It just makes Punk look weak, which doesn’t look good as Punk is one of the future top guys.
William Regal/Umaga/Batista Segment
Shawn Michaels vs. John Cena

Floyd Mayweather Video
IC Title Match: Big Show vs. Chris Jericho
Randy Orton Video, John Cena/Randy Orton/Triple H Int
Randy Orton and John Cena vs. Raw Roster- This was lame. They said the entire Raw roster but where were the top faces for this match?
3/21/08 Smackdown in Biloxi, MS, Approx Time: 1:27 hr

Batista vs. Deuce and Domino
Diva Segment
Floyd Mayweather Video
Big Show vs. 3 Scrubs
Edge vs. Funaki- 3 squashes in a row. What is this, a flashback to the old Wrestling Challenge shows?
VIP Lounge with Chris Jericho- Just what this show needed… a good segment. Like him, hate him, or think he is lame, Jericho insults his opponents unlike anyone else with his name calling and such.
Kane vs. Chuck Palumbo
Tag Team Title Match: Jesse and Festus vs. John Morrison and Miz

Chris Jericho and CM Punk vs. MVP and Carlito
Mr. Kennedy, Ric Flair Video, Floyd Mayweather/Big Show Video
Great Khali vs. Hardcore Holly- And the point of this meaningless squash was?
Ric Flair/Shawn Michaels Interview- Flair stole the spotlight with this great interview, which was probably what they were trying to do as Michaels didn’t say a whole lot, other than relating Flair to Old Yeller!
Maria vs. Melina
Maria, Ashley, and Jerry Lawler vs. Santino Marella, Beth Phoenix, and Melina
Triple H/John Cena Int, Triple H/John Cena/Randy Orton Video
Randy Orton, JBL, Umaga, and Big Show vs. Triple H, John Cena, Shawn Michaels, and Ric Flair- After half of the guys brawl to the back, Flair gives a low-blow to Michaels and gets the Figure Four on Orton. Flair, without a doubt, was the MVP of this above-average show.
3/28/08 Smackdown in Fayetteville, NC, Approx Time:

Over the top Rope Challenge: Mark Henry vs. Kane vs. Great Khali vs. Chuck Palumbo- Henry wins but I was thinking, maybe the E should turn Henry face. He was over as a face before but the last 5 years, on one gives much reaction to him but I think he might work as a face. Bad start to what would be a great show.
Divas Segment
CM Punk vs. John Morrison- Excellent TV match and better than any of their matches from last year for the ECW Title.
Wrestlemania Press Conference Highlights
Kofi Kingston, Jesse, and Festus vs. Lance Cade, Trevor Murdoch, and The Miz
Batista vs. Snitsky- I’ve never been so happy after watching a squash match. Batista beats Snitsky, in 3 moves, which means that hopefully the days of pushing Snitsky are over!
Wet and Wild Match: Maryse and Victoria vs. Michelle McCool and Cherry
MVP vs. Chris Jericho- Another good match from tonight.
Edge/Vicky/Undertaker Segment- Edge says Undertaker will be 15-1 after Wrestlemania. After he and Vicky make out, the gong goes off as Undertaker pops out of the coffin and chokeslams Edge into it. He quickly turns around and Vicky is all of a sudden healed up, gets out of her wheelchair, bolts out of the ring. Good segment to close a solid show.
3/31/08 Raw in Orlando, FL, Night After Wrestlemania 24, Approx Time: 1:36 hr

Randy Orton/JBL Interview- Orton is still champ after WM! Matt Hardy would come out to attack Orton for what Orton did to him 3 months ago while JBL wants a Title shot.
William Regal/Matt Hardy Int
Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch vs…… Cryme Tyme!- OMG, I almost fell over in my couch. I was sooo not expecting this. They’re back! Smart move by the E as the fans were really starting to love them before they got fired last year.
Shawn Michaels Interview- Odd Interview for me as Michaels tried to explain what happened last night. Backstage after the interview, Batista is shown starring right at Michaels, not looking happy.
Cody Rhodes and Hardcore Holly vs. Brian Kendrick and Paul London
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho- Very good match as the crowd was really into it with loud chants for both guys but I was a little shocked to see Punk lose cleanly right after winning the MITB match last night.
Big Show/Great Khali Interview/Segment
Santino Marella/Maria Int- OMG what a F’n great segment by Santino! I can’t describe the segment here and possibly to it justice. “Did you get your rabies shot after kissing Snoopy the Dog?”
Randy Orton vs. Matt Hardy- Another good match but again, this loss here kinda kills Hardy’s momentum that he gained by returning last night.
Santino Marella vs. Maria- All the divas come to the ring and hold down Santino as he gets to live out one of my all-time fantasies but uh… we’ll just leave that one alone.
Ric Flair Retirement Segment- Flair actually wasn’t crying as he made his retirement speech. Triple H comes out to tell Flair, “Thank You” and that he wasn’t the only one who wanted to say thanks. All the guys from the back came out, including the original 4 Horsemen and of course by this time, Flair was bawling, which of course got me teary-eyed now. This send off was one of the greatest moments in wrestling that I have ever seen and makes me proud to be a wrestling fan. When I first started watching back in 97, I showed up to my friend’s house and out of nowhere I said to him, “you like Flair?” He’s like, “what?” I said, “Flair is nice huh?” I used to always trash wrestling and he was a huge wrestling nut but when I flipped to wrestling and actually tried to watch it for the first time, I got hooked right away and 3 guys drew me in, Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, and Ric Flair. With Flair retiring, it really does close out an era of the 70s-90s as Flair was the last of those times. Every time I see Flair crying, I can’t help but to feel like I know him personally and I myself start crying because I feel like I know his emotion and he appears to be so legit, even though I don’t really know him. It’s strange and tough to explain but one thing that isn’t tough to say is that we are all going to miss Flair. He is a stud and I only wish all greats could go out this way. We Love you, Flair and as Triple H said, Thank you!
4/4/08 Smackdown in Miami, FL, Show After Wrestlemania 24, Approx Time:

Edge/Chavo Guerrero/Vicky Interview- Very lame interview that wasn’t productive at all, other than setting up the main event where Kane will face Undertaker tonight.
MVP vs. Matt Hardy- So much for building up to a match.
Festus vs. Zack Ryder
Ric Flair Highlights
Shawn Michaels/Batista Interview- Good interview and surprisingly from Batista. Interview was missing a little something but still was good.
Vladimir Kozlov vs. Scrub- Finally, the guy who loves “double double E” makes his debut.
John Morrison and Miz vs. Jimmy Wang Yang and Shannon Moore- After the match, Great Khali attacks the guys but leaves when Big Show shows up.
Divas Segment- Some new chick comes out to attack Michelle McCool. Her name is Natalya Neidhart.
Wrestlemania Highlights
Kane vs. Undertaker
4/7/08 Raw in Albany, NY, Approx Time: 1:33 hr

Ric Flair Highlights
Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch vs. Brian Kendrick and Paul London
JBL/Randy Orton Int
JBL and Randy Orton vs. Triple H- Triple H wins and is part of the main event for Backlash. John Cena comes out and also wants a chance to be in the main event.
Hardcore Holly and Cody Rhodes vs. Santino Marella and Carlito
Cryme Tyme Segment, Triple H/JBL Int
Beth Phoenix vs. Maria
Highlight Reel with Shawn Michaels/Batista- Another good interview from these two, this time, Shawn Michaels gets the better of Batista as Chris Jericho was stirring shit around.
William Regal/Randy Orton Int
JBL and Triple H vs. John Cena- Everyone should have been against Cena to keep him out of the title match but they all, including Randy Orton, helped Cena get into the main event some how.
4/11/08 Smackdown in Boston, MA, Approx Time: 1:27 hr

Great Khali/Big Show Segment- Khali tries to make piece with Big Show but Big denies him.
Miz/John Morrison Int

Undertaker vs. Festus
4/14/08 Raw in London, England, Approx Time: 1:30 hr

William Regal/JBL Int
Shawn Michaels/Chris Jericho Interview- Jericho pushes Michaels too far and gets superkicked for his Batista-like point of view on the Flair situation.
Carlito and Santino Marella vs. Paul London and Brian Kendrick- Santino works his magic on the mic after the match by calling themselves, “the wieners”.
Women’s Title Match: Mickie James vs. Beth Phoenix- Mickie wins the Women’s Title here.

Highlight Reel with Batista- Again, Jericho rambles and Batista gives him the powerbomb.
Tommy Dreamer vs. MVP
Hornswoggle vs. Matt Stryker
Big Show Int
Chavo Guerrero vs. Jamie Noble
Mark Henry vs. Big Show
Cherry vs. Victoria
Vladimir Kozlov vs. Scrub- Usually I’m against the E pushing big guys but Vladimir does have a chance to get over if he can prove that he is a beast in the ring and I’m not talking about a overly-produced beast like Snitsky or Mark Henry. I’m talking about someone who can actually… I don’t know… wrestle? Someone who can not just get by in the ring but impress people. So far, I see potential so we’ll see how he does.
Batista vs. Undertaker- Edge and his goons get pulled in from the audience and then get beat up by Taker and Batista.
4/21/08 Raw in Greenville, SC, One Night King of the Ring Tournament, Approx Time: 2:15 hr

KOTR First Round: Chris Jericho vs. MVP- Match was too short and MVP shouldn’t have lost so cleanly and quickly.
KOTR First Round: CM Punk vs. Matt Hardy- OK, my boy CM Punk wins but again, the match was too short. At least this wasn’t a submission win like the last match but still.. too short. Can’t we slow it down? We have 3 hours tonight.
JBL Int
KOTR First Round: Great Khali vs. Finlay- If this segment was mainly used to promote Big Show vs. Khali at the ppv, then why waste this segment as part of the Tournament? Shouldn’t they put two guys who deserve to be in something like this who have some talent? Shelton Benjamin? John Morrison? Anyone?
KOTR First Round: William Regal vs. Hornswoggle- OK, this is getting out of hand. What could have been a cool and memorable night is turning into a stupid and pointless tournament. Again, where is the real WWE talent for this? Leave it up to the E to drop the ball on this.
WWE In Europe Highlights
Shawn Michaels/Batista Interview- At first I was thinking, not another interview about Ric Flair but it turned out to be more about Batista not liking HBK and HBK not caring what Batista thinks of him so it was okay.
Hillary Clinton Int
Hardcore Holly vs. Carlito- Even these two should have been in the KOTR tournament instead of the last two matches. Maybe I’m just being picky or overly critical…. No, I don’t think so. Cody Rhodes and Santino Marella exchange some words after the match.
Triple H Int
KOTR Semi-Finals: Chris Jericho vs. CM Punk- 6 minutes or so, still a little short but Punk moves on.
Barack Obama Int- “Do you smell what Barack is cookin’?” Cute.
KOTR Semi-Finals: William Regal vs. Finlay- Regal wins as it’s starting to look like Regal set up this tournament on “his” show to win the tournament himself.
John McCain Int
Backlash Card Video, John Cena Int
Fake Hillary Clinton vs. Fake Barack Obama- Stupid skit ala Rosey vs. Donald Trump. When will Vince learn? Umaga comes down to take everyone out. If there was a silver lining to this, it was the Bill Clinton impersonator who had a few funny lines during this.
Maria/Mickie James/Beth Phoenix Interview/Segment- Beth sounds pretty good on the mic.
Mr. Kennedy Video- He’s coming back next week. Where did he go? And why? Oh yeah, they probably didn’t have anything for him.
KOTR Finals: William Regal vs. CM Punk- Regal wins proving my earlier theory of Regal setting this up to win it.
Randy Orton, JBL, Edge, and Chavo Guerrero vs. Triple H, John Cena, Kane, and Undertaker- What a bad show. Had so much promise but didn’t live up to the hype. That’s the E for you.
4/25/08 Smackdown in Greensboro, NC, Approx Time: 1:29 hr

Edge/Chavo Guerrero/CM Punk Interview- The man from all three brands, CM Punk mentions he could beat Edge so they set up a match between these two tonight. Edge closes with the corny line of, “you don’t have to worry about cashing in Money in the Bank because after tonight, you’ll just be bankrupt”. Disappointing way to close this segment but I still feel Punk is holding back a little bit on the mic.
Shannon Moore vs. Miz- John Morrison gets on commentary and tells Coach congratulations on no longer being the least informed commentator because that award goes to Mike Adamle. No doubt.
Presidential Candidates Interview Highlights
Cherry vs. Natalya- The announcers mention that Natalya’s last name is Neidhart, who is the daughter of Jim Neidhart and them mention one of Neidhart’s trademarks, his old laugh.
Great Khali/Big Show Highlights- Damn, videos like these almost make you want to care about the match… Hey Hey, I said ALMOST.
Matt Hardy/MVP Interview- Add Matt Hardy to the list of people who were once really bad on the mic but eventually became really respectable. He’s still not great, a bit monotone, and one dimensional, but he does well and WWE obviously has the confidence in him to deliver more than a couple of lines during a promo, unlike Batista where they know he’s still bad and they keep his talking to a minimum.
Edge vs. CM Punk- Edge wins in a match filled with nearfalls.
KOTR Highlights
Vladimir Kozlov vs. Marty Gardner
Backlash Card Video, Batista Int, Raw Highlights
World Heavyweight Title Match: Batista vs. Undertaker- Shawn Michaels runs in to superkick Batista.
4/28/08 Raw in East Rutherford, NJ, Night After Backlash, Approx Time: 1:30 hr

Triple H/Randy Orton Interview- Triple H is the new WWE champion! He still comes out with the John Cena belt which disappointed me. Trips is a guy who seems to be cut out from a traditional type wrestler so I’m kinda surprised he didn’t get a traditional type style belt. I used to think they kept that belt because it would revolve around Cena but now I think they do it because it looks different than the Heavyweight Title. Either reason is a bad reason to keep it so I would like to know why they keep that crappy title belt. “As of now, the Age of Orton is officially dead!”
Mickie James, Kelly Kelly, Ashley, Michelle McCool, Maria, and Cherry vs. Beth Phoenix, Melina, Jillian Hall, Layla, Natalya, and Victoria- Not that I’m for long women matches, but you figure with 12 divas in a match, they could milk it for more than a couple of minutes.
JBL vs. Robbie McAllister
Paul London and Brian Kendrick vs. Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch- After Trevor loses, he gets on the mic and sings a verse/chorus of “Friends in low places” and actually sings it pretty well.
Paul Burchill and Katie Lea vs. Super Crazy- OK so so far, 1 opening interview and 4 matches! This is like old school with all these wrestling matches, even with them being squashes. Kinda like a 2 hour Superstars episode from 1990.
Randy Orton Int- Orton, are you having any second thoughts? ….Long stare…. “NO!” Now that’s an insightful interview.
William Regal/Mr. Kennedy Interview- What a great showing from both, especially from Kennedy. Kennedy returns and gets a decent reaction but if he keeps up these antics, gestures, and continues to improve, he’s going to be a big big star. WWE better not drop the ball with him. I’m all for a feud with these two but they are both in a position where they can’t lose anytime soon. If they want to push either one, they have to start going over people.
Santino Marella vs. Cody Rhodes
Highlight Reel with Shawn Michaels- Jericho gives HBK a “best actor in sports entertainment” award for “faking” a knee injury at Backlash. Jericho just accuses Michaels of being a liar, then walked out of the ring to the back. A segment that makes you say…. um…ok?
Santino Marella/Rowdy Roddy Piper Int- I would love to have these guys go back in forth on some longer interviews. After Piper slaps Marella, he says “does that boy have a death wish, or is he just special.”
WWE Title Match: Randy Orton vs. Triple H- Match wasn’t great but was a ppv caliber match as far as pacing, feel, etc. Match and even the show ends when William Regal goes to the production truck and tells Kevin Dunn to pull the plug because the crowd is disrespecting him and that we don’t deserve to watch the ending. Lol ok.. interesting way to do it and I can actually say I’ve never seen a match or show end like that.
5/2/08 Smackdown in Atlantic, City, NJ, Mick Foley begins announcing, Approx Time: 1:29 hr

US Title Match: MVP vs. Matt Hardy
Batista/Mick Foley Interview
Jesse and Festus vs. Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder
Finlay vs. Julio Dinero
Undertaker/Vicky Guerrero/Great Khali Segment- Vicky strips Undertaker of his Title for using an “illegal” chokehold over the last several months. WWE is really going for the “wait to see what happens” programs lately.

Paul Burchill and Katie Lea vs. John Cutler- Mike Adamle comes out to replace Jim Ross for the match because as said by William Regal, Adamle has also been respected.
Shawn Michaels/Chris Jericho Int
Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho vs. John Morrison and The Miz- Michaels really looks like he is faking his knee injury tonight, especially when he is trying to pose in the ring before the match starts.
Randy Orton vs. CM Punk- William Regal comes out, turns off the lights, calls the match over, and cuts to commercial.
Randy Orton Int
Carlito’s Cabana with Rowdy Roddy Piper/Santino Marella- Cryme Tyme and Cody Rhodes come out to save Piper from a beat down.

Batista vs. John Morrison
Big Show vs. Tommy Dreamer
Kane vs. Chavo Guerrero
Vladimir Kozlov vs. Phil Atlas
Over The Top Rope Challenge: Matt Hardy vs. MVP vs. Finlay vs. Batista vs. Big Show vs. Kane- Won by Edge who, at the last moment, was medically cleared to compete. He will face Undertaker at the next PPV for the Title. My DVR got a little glitchy at the end of the show so during the match, every 4 seconds or so, the picture would freeze up for half a second. The audio wasn’t effected.
5/12/08 Raw in Detroit, MI, Approx Time: 1:27 hr

William Regal/John Cena/Lilian Garcia/Mickie James Interview- One of the cheesiest segments I can remember. Cena and Lilian played up to the local crowd way too much. It might have helped Cena here but people are going to keep booing him for being such a suck up later.
Tag Team Title Match: Santino Marella and Carlito vs. Bob Holly and Cody Rhodes- “Roddy The Piper” was sitting at ringside.
Mr. Kennedy vs. Snitsky- “Snitsky has summer teeth. Some are yellow. some are brown. When Snitsky smiles, traffic slows down, that’s all I know.” – Jerry Lawler.
Santino Marella Int, John Cena/Mickie James Int
Mickie James and Maria vs. Beth Phoenix and Melina
Chris Jericho/Shawn Michaels Interview- Michael admits that he was faking his knee injury, then he super kicks Jericho to prove it.
Jeff Hardy vs. Umaga- Hardy returns and was starting to explain why he was suspended (drugs) before William Regal comes out to put him in a match. I was looking forward to Hardy telling people what happened but oh well.
Cryme Tyme vs. Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch- After Cade and Murdoch win, Cade turns on Murdoch and punches him in the face, twice. This may sound strange, but these two do have a little bit of potential and aren’t complete jobbers.
Melina/Jillian/Beth Phoenix Int/Brawl, Judgment Day Card Video
Randy Orton vs. John Cena- Orton gets new music. I’m not sure that there was anything wrong with his old music so why change it?
5/16/08 Smackdown in Grand Rapids, MI, Approx Time: 1:27 hr

Edge/Teddy Long/Vicky Interview- Teddy Long quits and even I’m like, argh!! I’m tired of all these heel GMs running around and controlling every show. I thought Vicky might get fired here but to no avail.
CM Punk vs. Chuck Palumbo
Vicky/Edge/Chavo/MVP/Finlay/Big Show Int
Layla vs. Michelle McCool- Interesting move used by Michelle to win the match. Some sort of roll-through, knee submission.
Batista Interview
Big Show and Finlay vs. MVP and Mark Henry- The E still has use for Mark Henry? Haven’t they driven that “Worlds Strongest Man” bit into the ground?
Vicky Int

Mickie James/Katie Lea Int, Shawn Michaels/William Regal Int
Chris Jericho vs. Batista- Good TV match. Man, the crowd is so hot tonight.
Vince/William Regal/Ted Dibiase Int
Santino Marella Interview- Santino impersonates “Rodney the Piper’s” Pit and has Cousin Sal from Jimmy Kimmel’s show as his guest. Rowdy Roddy Piper shows up at the end.
Mr. Kennedy vs. William Regal- Regal loses but Vince never came out to fire him. This match should have been hyped ahead of time and given some more time.
JBL and Randy Orton vs. John Cena and Triple H- Stacked show tonight. Maybe a little too stacked. If they had hyped this stuff last week or given everyone notice of how big the show was going to be, I’m sure the ratings would have been better than average for this one. None the less, good Raw with good matches and a very hot crowd.

Memorial Day Tribute Video
Vince Int- Vince pretty much promises something special. Will he deliver? Or will they flop like they do most of the time when the promise something big? We’ll find out and you’ll get my reaction when it happens.
Triple H/Randy Orton Interview- I’m kinda diggin’ Orton’s new music as he takes about 5 minutes to get into the ring, giving me plenty of time to hear it. “The way I see it, you’re just a scared little boy in a man’s world.” – Triple H. “Ohhhhhh!!” – Audience. “Not a bad one liner.” – Me. Good, intense interview here.
Jillian Hall vs. Melina- Melina gets a good face reaction as Beth Phoenix does commentary. Jillian rings “No chance in hell” before the match.
Chris Jericho/Vince/Cryme Tyme Int- Strange interview.
Tag Team Title Match: Paul London and Brian Kendrick vs. Cody Rhodes and Hardcore Holly- After the match, Ted Dibiase debuts his son, Ted Dibiase Jr. I was hoping, for some strange reason, that Dibiase would reform the Million Dollar Corporation as the E needs some good stables again like there were in the late 90s.
Rowdy Roddy Piper/Cousin Sal/Jimmy Kimmel Video
Vince/Mickie James/JBL Int
JBL and Umaga vs. John Cena and Jeff Hardy
Shawn Michaels/Vince Int, WWE in Mexico Highlights- Funny Segment by Triple H and Shawn Michaels who wore luchador masks.
Mr. Kennedy vs. Carlito- Paul Burchill and Katie Lea didn’t like what Kennedy… Kennedy did to Regal so they attack him.
Vince/Trevor Murdoch Int, One Night Stand Card Video
Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho- Good stuff while it lasted. After the match, Jericho flips out and looks like he is going to nail a fallen HBK with a chair but thinks about what he was going to do and then helps Michaels up. Interesting.
Vince Interview- So what’s the big pay off? Vince announces that in 4 weeks, there will be a draft. That’s not the big news though. Vince announces that each show, he is going to give out a million dollars… Yup, that’s it. I want to say I’m upset about this but why do I get the feeling that this means that Ted Dibiase, the Million Dollar Man, will be the new Raw GM?

Triple H/John Cena/Jeff Hardy/Vince Interview
Mr. Kennedy vs. Umaga
Vince Interview- Vince explains why he is giving away a million dollars which even after he is done, I still don’t get it. Desperation for ratings I guess but this interview came over as a pep rally for WWE fans more than anything else.
Santino Marella and Carlito vs. Hardcore Holly and Cody Rhodes- Cody Rhodes brings out a “Special Time Keener”, Rowdy Roddy Piper. Rhodes meant to say “keeper” but I couldn’t help but to laugh at it. Sorry, Cody. I won’t be forgetting that one.
Santino Marella Int, Cody Rhodes/Hardcore Holly/Ted Dibiase Jr. Int

Batista Int
Edge, Curt Hawkins, Zack Ryder, and Chavo Guerrero vs. Batista, Nunzio, Funaki, and Colin Delaney- As Edge comes out, Mick Foley says on commentary regarding Vince’s Million Dollar give-away that Vince hasn’t wasted that much money since he signed Goldberg. OUCH!
6/9/08 Raw in Oakland, CA, “McMahon’s Million Dollar Mania”, Approx Time: 1:37 hr

Cryme Tyme vs. Santino Marella and Carlito
Triple H vs. Jeff Hardy- John Cena does commentary and would cause Triple H to lose via count out.
Vince Int- Vince gives away $250,000 to close the show. What a boring and non-eventful way to close the show. Very bad edition of Raw for the sake that half of it was wasted on this money giveaway crap. How about some good F’n wrestling? How about new stars? New main eventers? How about new angles and storylines? More longer, competitive matches? This will boost ratings as well and you don’t need to resort to a lame money throwaway gig.
6/13/08 Smackdown in Fresno, CA, Approx Time: 1:26 hr

Divas Bikini Segment
Chris Jericho/Shawn Michaels/Last Week Highlights, Vince/Hacksaw Jim Duggan Segment
Jeff Hardy vs. Carlito- Lawler says at the end, “What a great match” but it was completely one-sided with Hardy easily going over and Carlito jobbing once again.

Vince Segment- After Vince gives away $500,000, the corner of the stage where he was standing falls apart and Vince is “injured” as the show ends.
6/27/08 Smackdown in Houston, TX, Approx Time: 2 hr (includes commercials)

Vickie Int
Triple H/Edge Interview- Batista comes in to get a piece of Edge and already the brand split is on mute. I guess they are waiting til after the ppv to put everyone on their correct show.
Kane and Big Show vs. Mark Henry and MVP- Who has the most upset and the biggest future of all these guys? MVP. And who does the J-O-B? MVP. This is fucking dumb. Why not have Mark Henry take the loss? Oh yeah, cuz he has an ECW Title match coming soon but there’s no way he’s going to win. The E needs to start working on creating new stars, new main events and stop pushing the guys who are past their prime. Big Show’s glory days are over, Mark Henry lost his flair many years ago, and Kane is the most stale guy on the roster, yet MVP takes the lost. This is Bullshit.

6/30/08 Raw in Oklahoma City, OK, Night after Night of Champions, Approx Time:

Jim Ross/Edge Interview- JR talks about leaving Raw until Edge comes out to trash him and then brag about Raw having no champion. That is until Batista runs in to attack Edge and gives him the Batista Bomb. Right after, CM Punk runs down to the ring and turns in the briefcase and not just any briefcase, but THEE Briefcase leading to….
World Heavyweight Title Match: CM Punk vs. Edge- Punk gives the GTS to an already beat-up Edge and wins the title in 8 seconds! Punk finally wins a real title! Is the WWE finally pushing new and well-deserved talent or is this just a tease and Punk will lose it soon? Who knows but for now, Punk is a World Champion. Awesome moment.
Mickie James vs. Jillian Hall
Rey Mysterio/Santino Marella Interview- “I’m Rey ‘Mastrio’, Look at me! I like cookies!” Santino. LOL.

Edge Int
World Heavyweight Title Match: JBL vs. CM Punk- Punk retains thanks to the distraction of John Cena and Cryme Tyme fighting of JBL’s guards. Punk makes it through the first show with his Title. I have no idea how long Punk will keep the title. I guess it depends on how much faith Vince and the E really have in him.
7/4/08 Smackdown in Tulsa, OK, Approx Time: 1:27 hr

VIP Lounge with Triple H/Vickie- The first time VMP and Hunter have interacted. Triple H congratulates Vickie on her wedding and says, “Edge is a genius, Marrying the Boss to get ahead in the business!” Then he makes comments about the wedding he and Stephanie had on Raw 9 years ago. Great stuff and it’s stuff like that that is kind of a reward for those who watched back in the day and understand all these references.

JBL/John Cena/Cryme Tyme Segment- Cena and Cryme Tyme destroy JBL’s limo.
Raw Last Week Highlights
Snitsky vs. CM Punk- This is a good sign for Punk because this shows that they probably plan on Punk keeping the title for a bit so they are going to throw a few scrubs in the mix for him to face to help legitimize his title run. I could be wrong but that’s what I’m thinking.
Shawn Michaels/Chris Jericho Interview
Charlie Haas vs. Kofi Kingston- Paul Burchill runs in to get a piece of Kofi after the match.
Batista vs. Kane vs. JBL vs. John Cena- Batista wins and becomes the new number one contender. Kane appears to turn heel here by attacking the announcers and cries, “Is he dead or alive?” Can he possibly be talking about Paul Bearer??

Jeff Hardy vs. Matt Hardy- This is one of those matches that they should advertise ahead of time, no matter what their outcome will be. It just shows that Creative books from week to week instead of any type of long term booking.
Edge/Vickie/Triple H Segment- Triple H comes out with a video of Edge flirting and kissing the wedding planner lady. So why was there a camera in the room in the first place? That was kind of a lame way out of this.
7/21/08 Raw in the Mohegan Sun Casino, Night after Great American Bash, Approx Time: 1:31 hr

Batista/JBL/CM Punk Interview- Good thing I didn’t pay for the ppv last night because a) the match I wanted to see last night ended in a DQ and b) There is a rematch tonight as Punk is giving Batista a rematch. Why buy ppvs when there will be two or three rematches the next night or during the same week on TV for free.

Mickie James and Kofi Kingston vs. Katie Lea and Paul Burchill
Jamie Noble/Batista Int, CM Punk/JBL Int
Santino Marella vs. D-Lo Brown- D-Lo returns but the real highlight of the show happens when Beth Phoenix comes down and as she and Santino start to brawl, they slow down, stare at each other, then give each other a quick kiss. Crowd popped as this might be interesting. Good to see Santino in something that could be a storyline instead of trotting him out there every week to go a job.
World Heavyweight Title Match: Batista vs. CM Punk- Kane attacks Batista before the match.

***Battle Royal: MVP vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Mr. Kennedy vs. Great Khali vs. Big Show vs. Umaga- I’m missing most of this match as my power went out and cut my DVR recording. Great Khali wins giving him a title shot against Triple H so I could care less for not having this match complete. It’s 2006 all over again with Khali getting title shots again. Because Khali sells tickets right? He gets people to buy ppvs right?

John Cena/Batista/Shane Interview
Santino Marella and Beth Phoenix vs. D-Lo Brown and Kelly Kelly
Shane/JBL Int
Tag Team Title Match: Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole vs. Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase Jr- Originally Hacksaw Jim Duggan came out to team up with Lawler but a note was handed to Lilian Garcia, saying that the new GM (to be announced later) changed the match and that Cole is now involved. That tells us that the new GM is a heel, which is a tired act over the course of the last 6 years. To make things worse, Mike Adamle comes out to replace him. Crowd was actually behind Cole.
Jamie Noble vs. Kofi Kingston
CM Punk vs. William Regal- Regal returns as JBL does guest commentary. If Regal can keep himself clean, he can easily be a main eventer.
Highlight Reel with Himself/Lance Cade- Jericho claims this is his last Highlight Reel and is ready to go after the World Heavyweight Championship.
Mickie James vs. Jillian Hall
Smackdown Rebound, Summerslam Card Video
John Cena/Cryme Tyme/Batista Int
JBL and Kane vs. Batista and John Cena- Mike Adamle is announced as the new GM. Why is Vince riding on Adamle’s jock? He will fire… err sorry, “release” wrestlers when he feels they have nothing for them or they have outstayed their welcome but yet Adamle, who is beyond outstaying his welcome, continues to not just stay on TV, but now gets the Raw GM spot?
8/1/08 Smackdown in Hershey, PA, Approx Time: 1:29 hr

MVP vs. Jimmy Wang Yang- Jeff Hardy sits at ringside, then acts like he is pissed at MVP and gives him the twist of fate. Poor Jeff. Dude just can’t act at all.
Vickie/Chavo Int
Mr. Kennedy vs. Shelton Benjamin- Shelton says that he shouldn’t have been wrestling because he was sick. Crowd boo’d, which means it would be great if every time Shelton lost, he made an excuse. Crowd would boo the heck out of it.
Brian Kendrick vs. Stevie Richards- Again, Kendrick works the mic a little bit before the match and does a good job. Last week in his interview, he said the word “wrestler” (which is a bad word on WWE TV). This week, he said “Superstar” so I’m sure Vince got in his ear about that one.
Great Khali vs. Jeff Hardy- MVP comes out and helps Jeff Hardy lose to the greatest wrestler of our generation, Khali.
Ron Killings Promo
Maria vs. Victoria
Edge/Alicia Int, Triple H Video, Summerslam Card Video

Cutting Edge with Mick Foley- Highlight of the week. Mick Foley is so awesome on the mic, especially when he gets that emotionally intense tone in his voice. He tells Edge to find the old Edge and bring that to Summerslam because if he brings this married-man-Edge, Undertaker will tear him apart. Edge and Foley then Brawl. Great Segment.

Summerslam Highlights
JBL vs. Jamie Noble
Mike Adamle Interview
John Cena vs. Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase Jr.- Before the match, Cryme Tyme came out and stole the tag title belts. The tag champs, however, lose their credibility as a tag team by losing to Cena here.
Shawn Michaels Int, CM Punk Int
Santino Marella vs. D-Lo Brown- Kofi Kingston does commentary.
Kane Interview- Kane basically that he destroyed Rey Mysterio so Batista runs down to attack Kane.
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho- Punk loses cleanly to Jericho here but it’s a though call. I would say Punk needs the win more because the E needs to establish Punk as a legit winner and Punk was in his home town tonight too. I’m kind of sick of the lame DQs though so a clean win one way or another is better than that route.

9/12/08 Smackdown in Milwaukee, WI, Approx Time:

Triple H/Jeff Hardy Interview- Something about this interview didn’t click with me. I don’t think I liked the tone in the voice of these two, especially Triple H who had a sarcastic tone. His line at the end was good about how if Hardy wins tonight that at No Mercy, Hardy would prove Triple H (about Hardy getting close but messing it up).
