RAW IS HANDSOME RUSEV - 1/23/2017

Recommended Posts

Do part-timers have to go through Concussion Protocol?  :-/

I forgot that part of Goldberg's charm is that he only gets hurt shooting on himself.

Whoever decided having Reigns wrestle the same two guys over and over again every week for two fucking months is a goddamn idiot.

The Brock vs. Goldberg vs. Taker staredown was awesome, as was Neville. Loved Big E quoting Michael Scott, too. And Sasha in yoga pants? That's a win. Certainly was better than the fan tearing his shirt off for Goldberg, or Goldberg forgetting his lines.

Owens ruled tonight too -

Cole - ROMAN'S QUEST TO BECOME A DOUBLE CHAMPION.

Owens - There's no chance of that happening - just like there's no chance of you becoming a good commentary.

Owens - You're bald and not even 30.

Corey - And he lives at home with hits parents.

Owens - I'm sweating and nervous because I'M SITTING NEXT TO A DEVIANT!

Owens - CODEBREAKER! BREAK HIS CODE, CHRIS!

Seeing Undertaker/Goldberg/Lesnar in the same ring was a very cool visual.  I liked the Sasha and Nia Jax segment.  It's nice to have a secondary feud going.

They've done a really good job with the Rumble itself. Lots of stars and potential winners involved. The rest of the card is pretty strong as well.

How'd Goldberg even get busted open? I turned away for a second and he's suddenly hardway'd.

If you're talking about after his entrance, this happened to him a number of times. I think some of the burning embers firing out in his entrance wind up busting him open. Or...man...maybe his skin is really brittle?

the Rumble match itself is the most intriguing in a long ass time.  Then you have AJ and Cena which is a potential MOTYC.  Charlotte/Bayley and Sasha/Nia could both be good.  I'm not sure about Owens/Reigns and Jericho in the shark cage but it'll be interesting enough. 

I don't know what else is on the card but looking like a strong show.

Adding the No DQ stip to Owens-Reigns after you've already established Jericho will be locked away in a cage is so stupid. So basically, anyone in the world is allowed to come in and interfere, just not Chris Jericho.

Maybe others knew this, but I had no idea what New Day and Titus were referencing so had to look it up. They did it practically word for word too.

That's a problem all over RAW, though.  SDL has the same problem, but they counter by adding elements (La Luchadora, for example, which leads to a new feud).

Didn't they say he headbutted a locker? 

or...it could have been when he tripped and fell over his lines.

Jericho shot on him again. Before he told him about TruCar and Nature Box.

Handsome Rusev.  All other considerations are secondary.

Even funnier considering he had to take bumps with gauze shoved up his nose afterwards.

Yeah, but Roman's the only one they're super-desperate to get over.  Booking the same shit every week isn't doing him any favors.

Rusev should have every title on both shows.

Would like to read what happened after the show went off. Final visual was very Austin Powers "evil people laughing then what."

Ultimately, it comes down to building people, which they don't do enough of.  Last week, they had Zayn and Braun working with the Big 4.  While Sami rolled-up Rollins in their match, Strowman was relegated to an 8-man tag that meant nothing. Totally inconsistent.

Even if they incorporated PTs like Goldberg and Lesnar more, it would help. At least show them interacting with the main roster more.

We all know the answers to the questions.  But until Vince/HHH/whoever work to remedy it, it doesn't matter.

When was the last time the go home RAW before the Rumble wasn't just a bunch of guys brawling in the ring?
