    I will be brief today because I won't be around for tonight's Raw because I'll be at the Hornets/Sixers game. I'll watch the show latertonight or tomorrow.

    Last week's Raw was a mixed bag. The dead crowd definitely did not help things. The undeniable highlight was the continued amazing work of Chris Jerichoand WWE Legends. Last week it was Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat's turn. After being announced as the newest inductee to the Hall of Fame, he wasgiven the chance to cut a promo. This of course brought out Chris Jericho. The two proceeded to cut another unforgettable segment. The Dragon said he dideverything in his career for the fans, that he was Jericho's idol, and that Jericho was the real hypocryte. Jericho went on to cut Steamboat down,eventually physically attacking him. While other heels like Edge and Orton may come across as "cool", you genuinely feel a sense of hatred towardsJericho. He seems like such a scumbag without having to use cheap heel tactics we so often see in the WWE. He was the Superstar of the Year in 2008, and Iwould say he is well on his way to repeating in 2009. I am actually hoping that the feud does not eventually end up as Jericho vs Austin, because Austin'spromos would be nowhere near the level of Flair, Piper, and Steamboat. Austin may present the best match, but at this point, I think I would much rather seeJericho vs Steamboat. Of course, it wouldn't come close to the draw of Jericho vs Austin. If they are eventually building towards Jericho vs. Austin, Ithink they should hold off Austin for one more week. I would like to see Greg Valentine tonight, since his story is the primary basis for the movie TheWrestler.


    HBK beat JBL last week to earn the opportunity to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania 25. However, for whatever reason, Vladimir Kozlov CLEANLY defeated TheUndertaker this past week on Smackdown, so now we will see HBK vs Kozlov. If Kozlov defeats HBK tonight, I will stop watching the WWE permanently.

    CM Punk defeated both The Miz and John Morrison last week in an entertaining match to earn his way to the Money in the Bank Ladder Match at WrestleMania. Iwould have liked to see at least Morrison in the match as well, but it seems they are headed to a tag title unification match against Carlito and Primo. Iwould expect someone else to earn a spot in the match tonight.

    And then we had the comical portion of Raw. HHH chased Legacy around the arena like they were a group of bafoons. The segment was a complete dud in myopinion. Maybe it's my hatred of HHH. Maybe it's the way I hate how they have booked Orton and Priceless, but the backstage chase was a joke. We'll see what happens tonight, but I don't have much interest in the Raw main event for WrestleMania.

    I have a feeling something will happen with the Kozlov and HBK match and that in the end, it might be a 3-way match.
    HBK vs Taker is a big match but what are the chances Taker loses to HBK?

    The chances are slim to none, no one is gonna beat Taker at Mania, except if they want Ted to get his big push this way.

    I haven't seen RAW or Smackdown in a while, so I was wondering when Wrestlemania is and if someone can explain Austin's feud with Chris Jericho?

    Should be a good Raw though. A month before and a month after Mania are the best Raws IMO.

    Well, hopefully they get things moving because I'm not too juiced up for Mania at this point.

    Rumored plans involving the Draft:

    The final decisions for the WWE Draft will be made the week of WrestleMania. Vince McMahon will have extendedcreative meetings for the show and where the show leads.

    Triple H is a lock for a move to Raw to continue his feud with Randy Orton. As previously reported, Triple H was moved to Smackdown to increase the ratings andwith the recent change to MyNetworkTV, they may not be a network in September. The general feeling is that it would be a risk to weaken the Smackdown brand byhaving all the top stars on Raw, but it would also not benefit the company by having John Cena or Randy Orton on a show averaging 2.0-2.2 ratings.

    Rey Mysterio will be moved back to Smackdown to increase the Hispanic demographic. He has not affected the demographic on Raw, but Smackdown has suffered sincehis departure. They were number one or in the top ten with Mysterio, but since he left in June they have been in the top ten once.

    Jeff and Matt Hardy are expected to stay on Smackdown. There's a chance Edge will move to Raw and Chris Jericho to Smackdown. Batista could move toSmackdown if Triple H is indeed returning to Raw. Management offered Shawn Michaels in the past to move to Smackdown but he turned it down since the tapingsconflict with his Wednesday religious commitments.

    Jim Ross could return to Raw's announcer booth since internal reviews for Michael Cole have not been good, however, if they stick with Cole on Raw then donot expect an announcer change to happen for a long time.

    I don't understand, why not have HHH and Orton featured on both shows?....Miz and Morrison are on every damn show, so why not have your biggest stars dosome cross promotion from time to time...

    Yep.

    Also, Tonight Orton will decide which champion he will face at WrestleMania which is pretty obvious it's HHH, but you never know..

    Im going to SD tomorrow night, Im interested to see if Cena will be there since my wife likes him. Since it is a double sd taping, the 2ed taping is suppossedto be the 500th edition of sd (airing a week from friday). Maybe something big will happen. I will post a full review on Wed. 3rd row ringside, best seats Iever had! I posted this in the old thread, I will repost, if you can help me I appreciate it...

    I picked up some backlash tickets on Satruday, sec 122 row C. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THE SINGLE LETTER ROWS (A, B, C) ARE CLOSER THAN THE DOUBLE LETTER ROWS (AA,BB,CC) AT THE DUNKIN DONUTS CENTER?

    I'm calling it now.

    Santino gets a cheap victory tomorrow.

    MITB match, everyone is down and out after a huge spot. Santino sneaks up the ladder and grabs the briefcase.

    [​IMG] Please let that happen

    lol... I love watching Jericho promos. But I can't even front, I got HELLA offended when I was at Raw and he called the crowd hypocrites and parasites.
