Hello I am your host Johnny Rosado. My apologizes for having no Raw report last week. We had technical difficulties getting it posted. I assure you that these issues have been resolved and we will be bringing you all of the action as it unfolds tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw. Please join me after every commercial break tonight at 9pm on USA network.
Rosado’s Run In: Last weeks show left something to be desired to this viewer. The whole show and story lines felt rushed and poorly thought out. What has happened with the anonymous general manager? WWE has been riddled with Plot holes as of late. Let’s just hope that they redeem themselves tonight.
John Laurinaitis was introduced to the ring. A video clip of last weeks show featuring Triple Hs firing and Laurinaitis hiring. Laurinaitis introduced himself as The interim GM. He teased that Rey Mysterio would return in action tonight but was kidding. He stated that he will not let the board of directors down nor will he let the fans down either. He mentioned the Jim Ross firing last week and stated that he received thousands of Tweets fro fans wanting JR back. He introduced Jim Ross Back to Raw. Laurunaitis asked JR to come to the ring. He apologized to JR but than mad fun of him. Laurinaitis made a match of John Cena and Jim Ross vs Cole and Alberto Del Rio.
Rosado’s Run In: Why was JR even fired to begin with? He is the greatest announcer of all time. Vince just likes to stick it to JR at the expense of the fans, JR and his family. UGH…..!

Natalya beat up Eve for a few minutes hitting her with strikes. Natty continued to dominate Eve with body slams. Eve hit her top rope moonsault for the win.
Rosado’s Run In: Why bother positioning Natty and Beth as dominate Divas to just have them job to less talented Divas like Eve? Tonights theme seems to be UGH….!
