Welcome to 10 Thoughts on RAW.Â Tonight is the final RAW before Wrestlemania 26 and also my final night giving you 10 Thoughts.Â Iâ€™m taking a much needed break and hope to be back sometime in the future.Â If you’re interested in replacing me, scroll down to the bottom. Here we go!
- Great opening promo from Shawn Michaels and I also liked the career retrospective package.Â Too bad HBK hasnâ€™t had a longer time to play the heel for this feud.
- Miz/Morrison was very good as expected.Â The neck hit on the apron Morrison took was sick.Â And Big Show called Morrison a Solid Gold Dancer.Â That was hilarious (guess that shows my age).
- Kingston/Kozlov was a waste (as expected).Â How many people are in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match anyway?Â Seems like the entire midcard.Â (I know itâ€™s 10, Iâ€™m trying to make a point)
- How is anyone supposed to take Legacy seriously when they are only put in handicap matches?Â They get squashed one-on-one and in handicap matches they either lose or barely scrape by with a win.
- The actual match was still entertaining.Â Ortonâ€™s pop was HUGE.Â I expect this face turn to be much more successful than his last one.
- HBK almost made Kane look good.Â Hereâ€™s a gem from Michael Cole during the match, â€œYou donâ€™t often see Shawn Michaels using submission holds but heâ€™s using one here.Â And heâ€™s used them throughout his career.â€Â What?
- Much like last year, HBK keepâ€™s getting the best of the Undertaker leading up to Wrestlemania.Â And much like last year, heâ€™ll lose at Wrestlemania.
- Bob Euker is an odd choice for the Hall of Fame but I like it.Â He lands right in the wheelhouse of my wrestling superfandom, much like Wendi Richter.
- Pete Rose wasnâ€™t used much but used well.Â They acknowledged his history with Kane and played it right.Â And he got to knock the San Francisco Giants and their inability to win a World Series.Â Always a plus in my book.
- I really didnâ€™t watch any of the Batista/Cena â€œFaceoffâ€ because I just donâ€™t care about it.Â Yap yap yap.Â Of course Cena will win and then Iâ€™ll be glad Iâ€™m not watching wrestling.Â The Hardy and RVD vs. Beer Money, Inc. on TNA was pretty awesome though.
Thanks to everyone for reading.Â Iâ€™ve appreciated it very much.
