John Cena gets Superkick & Austin 3:16 Lives On Raw 3/27/07
Torrie Wilson & Candice Michelle & Ashley def. Women's Champion Melina & Victoria & Jillian
I didn’t pay any attention to the divas as usual. I don’t believe that this set of divas know how to wrestle, with the exception of Victoria. So I didn’t even watch it. Instead I was looking for a job in my new city.
CM Punk def. Kenny Dykstra
CM Punk was getting some major cheers in his hometown of Detroit last night. The crowd was immense in regards to cheering for Punk. However, I don’t feel that he’s ready for WWE. He just doesn’t fit in. Don’t get me started on Kenny, who is nothing more than a lost cause at this point. A jobber in purple…or is it blue? Without the spirit squad behind him, I can’t see him going very far.
Mr. McMahon def. ECW World Champion Bobby Lashley (No Disqualification Match)
I expected more from McMahon, but then when the gauntlet of lower class jobbers started pouring out, I knew what was ahead. I liked it overall, although I don’t believe that two Samoan Spikes would defeat such a monster. I’m sorry, I don’t like Lashley nd I don’t like Umaga. This match was good filler though.
Mr. Kennedy & Randy Orton def. The Hardys
Mr. Kennedy was on Raw and was great. Orton and Kennedy made quick work of the Hardy Boys in a really good back and forth match that was a highlight on Raw. Kennedy is in his element in the ring, and I haven’t seen such talent in a long time.
The Great Khali def. Ric Flair (DQ)
The Great Khali match was interrupted by Carlito, which got me excited, until Khali trashed Carlito. He demolished him, and it made me think that maybe a job at WWE is not all it’s cracked up to be, especially if your told you have to go get thrown around by Khali every night. Flair got saved, his chops weren’t chopping down the mighty Khali. This guy is huge.
Kane came out to settle the score, and Khali wisely left, leaving the crowd churning for a Wrestlemania bout. It should be interesting to see if Kane can math up to Khali in wrestling. The Undertaker couldn’t.
World Heavyweight Champion Batista & Undertaker def. World Tag Team Champions Shawn Michaels & John Cena
In a No Way Out rematch the odds were stacked against each team as they entered to face each other in a tag-match. This was very well paced and executed with out flaws. These guys know what they are doing, and I was even impressed with Batista.
Did I call it or did I call it?
The match ended when HBK swerved on Cena, knocking him out for a 3 count!
Overall Raw was good this time around. I loved Austin’s involvement, and the sneak peak of his movie made me want to watch that film even more. I’m going to look forward to a good action film, featuring Stone Cold Steve Austin.
In other wrestling news:
Wrestling Society X Lost one of their major players, as Vampiro has left the company. I've repeatedly vouched for a Vampiro WWE run, but Jim Ross has stated over and over that he's not sure on the guy's overall style because it's too high risk.
Vampiro will be back in CMLL for a while, and of course independents across the nation.
The show will most likely go on...just not with Vampiro, which is one of the main reasons I even watched the stupid thing.
Vampiro also has a documentary coming out, and I'll have to inform you of that later.
