RAW Discussion Thread- March 17, 2008 from Lafayette, LA (#773)

After being subjected two weeks in a row to the sadistic whims of others, next week it’s time for The Game to make the rules. And what Triple H has in mind spells nothing but hurt for his WrestleMania XXIV opponents, Randy Orton and John Cena.

 

Two weeks ago, RAW General Manager William Regal announced a Triple Threat Takeover, allowing each of the three men involved in the WWE Championship Triple Threat Match to arrange their opponents’ bouts for one week. That night, on John Cena’s command, Triple H was forced to battle reigning WWE Champion Randy Orton. Last week, The Cerebral Assassin was pushed into a match with his WrestleMania XV opponent, Kane, compliments of Orton.

 

This week, however, Triple H has arranged a match pitting Cena & Orton against the entire RAW Roster. (No, really. It’s true!)

 

What does this mean? Having suffered through two weeks of his opponents’ will, can The Game capture the momentum in the weeks leading up to the greatest stage in all of sports-entertainment?

 

In other action, Chris Jericho returns to RAW as the new Intercontinental titleholder after defeating former champion Jeff Hardy. Tonight, Y2J will kick off RAW with The Highlight Reel and he will have a huge guest - Big Show!

 

The bad blood continues to flow between Big Show and his WrestleMania foe Floyd “Money” Mayweather. The animosity between the two flooded the arena last week when The World’s Largest Athlete grabbed the WBC Welterweight Champion after their weigh-in, lifted him overhead and tossed him over the top rope causing Mayweather to injure his elbow. Will Mayweather be able to continue with their match? If so, how will The Greatest Fighter in the World retaliate?

 

For answers to these questions and more, tune in to Monday Night RAW at 9/8 CT on the USA network.

Does that mean that certain members of the roster have to wrestle twice? Or that it is just a one match show that will be broken up with backstage skits and videos?

 

I mean I'm a big Cena fan but that sounds like overkill, even if it shows HHH to be the smartest of the three (logically, it's a great idea - I just fear the practicality of it).

I agree if its just 2 hours of Cena & Orton going over wrestler's then it is going to be serious overkill

 

I said in the 'Wrestlemania Rewind Raw' thread the way I would do it is announce at the begining of the show that the way it works is:

 

Cena and Orton have to stay together everywhere during the show and any 2 Raw wrestlers can attack them at any time anywhere in the building as long as they bring a ref with them, the first set of wrestlers to score a win over Cena and Orton gets a tag team title shot but if you are in a losing team then you can't challenge Cena and Orton again and you both lose your chance.

 

If Cena and Orton lose then there is some kind of punishment for them, I can't think of anything at the moment off the tp of my head, which ensures they don't just lay down for everyone without trying to fight back

 

That way its not just Cena and Orton wrestling wave after wave of people in the ring, a match can be happening in the ring and while that is happening they can cut to a backstage report that there is a Cena/Orton vs ? match happening and HHH looks smarter because making it like the old Hardcore Title rule means there is more chance Cena & Orton will get hurt as there is more danger in the back (with tables, walls, doors etc to be slammed in to) then wrestling in the ring

Yeah, I think that would be a good idea. Kind of like the "bounty" thing, where Triple H would put a "bounty" on Cena & Orton's head and he offered them either money or the first title shot when he becomes champion at WrestleMania. I don't see it happening in any other way other than a Gauntlet Match or a Battle Royal.

 

Believe it or not, the Power 25 over at WWE.com made a good point when commenting about this match. They asked- Does this include the RAW Broadcast Team? How awesome would it be to see J.R. & "King" face Cena & Orton? Highly unlikely, but that would be entertaining.

What is the point of turning Kendrick on London, seems so pointless and worthless.

 

kinda realistic-why bother going in if your going to get the crap beat out of you.

 

On saying that Umaga really impressed me in that match. They pushed him well as a monster in that match

It is pretty blatent that a turn is in the works. They could have just kept them as a team and stuck them on Smackdown.

Shawn needs to turn heel tonight.

 

He needs to come out during the match, acting like he is going to help Flair.

 

AND THEN BAM!!!!

 

SWEET CHIN MUSIC!!!

 

Vince pins Flair.

 

EDIT: Wait, I got it

 

He needs to superkick Flair. Then as Vince is smiling like a mad man, he needs to super kick Vince, then put Flair on Vince for the pin.

 

Heel turn + we still get our WM match.

HBK and Flair and just gone beyond caring, HBK should have gone heel a long time ago. Now

with all this 'I love you' crap, I have just stopped carring about the match.

 

Flair should have had a better opponent to end his career, since MVP and Hardy are not fighting, MVP could have done with the extra rub.

That double team RKO was a really cool spot.

 

Really good Raw, enjoyed it immensely.

 

CM Punk vs. Carlito was surprisingly good, Umaga squashing guys is always fun to watch, Jericho - Big Show was alright and the punch from Show looked legit - kudos to Jericho for taking it, Street Fight was OK and the main event was all sorts of fun.

 

Overall, a good show.

Agree 100 percent one of the best moves of the show. Santino was his usual hilarious self again. The crowd was dead for the JBL match. The main event was fine until they all rushed the ring. Umaga chasing JBL was one of the funniest segments of the show.

 

Enjoyed it this week not a bad show overall.

Did anyone else notice (or care) how poor the Kim Kardashian bit was? You can easily tell she was reading her lines off of something behind the camera. Snoop probably did too, but the sunglasses kept it a secret. The Marella/Snoop confrontation was great. The 17-on-2 Handicap Match was very unique to say the least, or as I call it- "Main Eventers Squash Several Lower Talents All In One Match". The Flair/Vince Match was pretty good too, as was Punk Vs. Carlito.

 

The only reasoning I have as to why they are setting up a London Vs. Kendrick feud is so they can have something to main event Heat.

Just a thought but maybe the reason they are saving the HoF induction for ECW is because it's somebody who has a connection to the old ECW, Terry Funk perhaps.
