Random Thoughts: WWE Raw 11.18.13 (WWE Hits The Gas Going Into Survivor Series)

WWE Raw 11-13 Header

– Raw Goes Country & I try to stay awake.

– Raw last week ended on such a great visual high note, I’m curious to see if they’re able to follow it up this week.

– Calling it right now. Brad Maddox upsets Randy Orton!

– Curtis Axel versus Big E Langston for the Intercontinental Championship? I’ve awaited for a title switch for a few weeks now & the way they’ve pushed Langston, we could be seeing a new champ tonight.

– Bad call by the referee! Brad Maddox was just about to make his comeback!

– I saw an article recently which compared Big E Langston to Ron Simmons. I can see the similarities, even if I think Langston is more agile than Simmons ever was. Still, high praise for Langston and justified.

– Finally! I’ve only been calling this title change since the first time these 2 were supposed to wrestle.

– “Raw Country Musical Chairs” is up next. Bathroom break.

– And it broke down into a brawl. Shocking.

– The Road Dogg just sang “With My Baby Tonight” on the WWE App! Can’t put into words how awesome that was.

– Kind of sucks how WWE was even able to kill off the prestige of being a “Paul Heyman Guy”.

– Wonder why my Raw reviews haven’t been posted in a timely manner? This is how I have to work now.

Reviewing Raw

 

 

– I don’t know how this isn’t trending yet:

– I’m glad they finally announced a Traditional Survivor Series matchup. Considering the guys in the match, it should be a good one.

– Did The Miz turn heel? Is it because he’s mad no one liked him even as a babyface?

– I don’t even care that it’s a Divas match, I’ll take any Traditional Survivor Series matches this Sunday.

– The “Broadway Brawl” = the Nashville version of a “Miracle on 34th Street” match.

– Good God that was a beautiful dropkick.

– Despite the horrible gimmick, this match was another good way to establish Damien Sandow as a vicious heel.

– Um did someone forget to gimmick the cello? There was a sickening thud but not even a dent from Ziggler’s head.

– Double J strut & the acoustic guitar finisher! No other way this match could have ended.

– Xavier Woods debuts on Raw! This is going to open a lot of eyes who have never seen him.

– Damn they could have showcased Woods’ talent SO much more tonight. Maybe eliminate one of the six segments Randy Orton has been in…

– At least we didn’t have to witness Santino’s Cobra with a cowboy hat on.

– Weird moment on the WWE App just now. Goldust and Cody Rhodes were being asked who their mystery tag team partner for Survivor Series is going to be and someone randomly starting shouting something off-camera. Cody completely lost his train of thought so Goldust closed off the segment by saying to Josh Mathews “You’re such a mark.” Strange.

– This might be the first time the WWE has ever had a musical act on their show that the crowd was in to.

– Hey, WWE! Thanks for giving me the tag match tonight I would have bought Survivor Series for!

– The crowd is just ITCHING for a Wyatt Family/Shield brawl!

– Damn I only wish this was an elimination match. The drama is the only thing that’s missing.

– Nice twist having The Shield and the Family working together. These 6 men on the same page can be damn scary.

– Hart Foundation clothesline!

– THIS was the type of action you expect from a Survivor Series match and why I was interested in seeing CM Punk in a permanent tag team for a little while.

– Rey Mysterio returns and takes out Erick Rowen, Antonio Cesaro, Luke Harper and Jack Swagger. The four biggest guys in the ring.

– HUGE night tonight on Raw. Good main event, Big E Langston wins the IC Championship, The Miz turns heel, Xavier Woods debuts and Rey Mysterio returns. They really loaded up the go-home show before Survivor Series.
