– Something a little different here but I figured why not. We all love a good Rip!
– I don’t think I ever notice that they used the white leather WWF title. Wonder if that was left over from the Warrior’s run or vice versa.
– Not sure of Kurt Fuller is supposed to be playing Vince McMahon or McMahon’s vision of Ted Turner.
– The director of this movie has gone on to have a pretty successful TV directing career. I never would have guessed watching this movie.
Another week, another live RAW Review. Lets hope that this isn’t as bad as last night’s Royal Rumble.
Could This Be A Decent RAW Wrestling Show?
John Laurinaitis came out to start the show. He had a big smile on his face as he shook hands with fans at ringside. John Laurinaitis said a wise man told him that it is ok to make mistakes, as long as you don’t make the same one twice. He said that he truly believes he will become the permanent GM of RAW. He complimented his performance at the Royal Rumble. Laurinaitis went over the WWE Championship Match at the “Elimination” PPV. That’s what he said. The match is C.M. Punk vs Dolph Ziggler vs Chris Jericho vs Kofi Kingston vs Miz vs R-Truth. He then announced that tonight is Beth Phoenix vs Eve, Kofi Kingston vs Miz, Dolph Ziggler vs Randy Orton and C.M. Punk vs Daniel Bryan.
Hey everyone. It is Royal Rumble time! I will have live, up to the minute results here.
After the traditional opening, Michael Cole told us that we are starting with the Steel Cage Match!
Steel Cage Match for the World Heavyweight Championship: Daniel Bryan (c) vs Big Show vs Mark Henry
Bryan tried escaping early, but Henry pulled him down and speared him. Henry and Show exchanged jabs then Show knocked him down. Show splashed into Henry a couple of times into the cage. Bryan tried escaping but Show pulled him down with a powerslam. Bryan tried again but Show got him with a slap. Show went for the KO Punch but Bryan moved and Show punched the cage. Bryan worked over Show’s knee. Bryan then connected on some kick’s with Henry. It wasn’t enough to stop Henry from stopping Bryan from leaving the cage, then work Bryan over on the cage. Show caught Henry with a crescent kick then worked over Bryan. Show launched Bryan into the cage then worked over Bryan with some punches.

-Big Show’s beanie looks ridiculous.
-Bryan’s heel turn has been excellent and I’m excited to see him work with some of the other faces on Smackdown.
-AJ doesn’t wear a training bra!
-Cody needs some new music. Something classic.
– Let’s see how many people read this… Just found out from a little birdie that the WWE will announce Mike Tyson as the next inductee to the 2012 WWE Hall of Fame on this Monday’s Raw & WWE.com. This news broke here first.
– It’s Rumble week so I’m covering EVERYTHING!
– I hate Big Show’s “camo” look.
– Only Big Show could quote Snitsky with a straight face.
– Why would Show be in his ring gear, complete with taped up fists, if he was just going to retire?
– Interesting way to start the show and I’m actually ok with a Hardy/Bully Ray feud. This could elevate Ray while keeping Hardy away from the World title. Although I could have done without the Sting stuff.
– Wait, we’re actually starting a wrestling show with a brawl angle and then a match! It’s sad that this feels so fresh.
– Didn’t expect Tara to come out with a win here. Interesting finish though.
– Very happy they didn’t jump right into this segment after the opening brawl. Having a segment or two I between gave the show that always elusive “live” feel.
Everyone has one.
The first Pay Per View they were allowed to get.
Even though I started watching wrestling in 1987, I had never seen a live PPV until January of 1993. You see, I was born in January (23rd to be exact) and every year my parents found it hard to find me presents. It was less then a month after Christmas and Hasbro couldn’t put out WWF figures fast enough to complete my collection. So in ’93 my parents got creative. After hours and hours of fulfilling my familial obligations, I was finally able to open the huge wrapped box with my name on it. Inside of that box was… another smaller box. And then another. And another. After 7 boxes I finally opened a small ring box to reveal this:
My birthday is this Sunday, so instead of giving you a Royal Rumble Preview I’m giving you a detailed look back at my 24 years of life. I was born on a cold January day in 1988….
