OOfficial Discussion Thread for: RAW (January 29, 2018)

Tonight on RAW: SD won the Royal Rumble (Men's Edition), so we know their #1 Non-Stunt-Booking contribution to WrestleMania.... that means RAW has 3 weeks to get set for an Elimination Chamber Match to determine a #1 Contender to WWEU Champ Brock Lesnar....

We'll get half that field tonight, with 3 qualifying matches scheduled: John Cena vs. Finn Balor is the easy headliner of the batch, with Elias vs. Matt Hardy and Braun Strowmann vs. Kane having a bit more Taint of Inevitability to them...

Also, in order to clear all pathways, Roman Reigns gets his obligatory IC Title Rematch vs. the Miz tonight, before he likely qualifies for EC next Monday...

It really comes down to how stubborn WWE (read: "Vince") wants to be about Roman vs. Lesnar at Mania... last night's PPV sure as hell painted a picture where Lesnar did NOT beat Braun, and Braun was letting him hear it, tot he delight of the crowd.... meantime, Reigns continues to be toxic to a significant percentage of WWE's audience, so, I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'....

RAW's Asuka has her choice of Alexa Bliss or Charlotte Flair as her WM opponent, and was interrupted by Rowdy Ronda Rousey last night before she could make a pick.... Rousey's cameo also happened in an ambiguous fashion that indicates she could be hot-shotted into either title picture too...

More likely is that Rousey's announcement of a "full time" gig with WWE leads to them keeping her out of a title match in her debut.... there is even talk of her doing a mixed tag match at Mania, against Triple H and Stephanie.... this has been on the drawing board for years, at one time with The Rock as Rousey's partner.... this time around, Kurt Angle is a top candidate, along with whichever of Reigns/Braun does not get to face Lesnar...

Four pretty big time matches, and starting to get more clarity on Rousey should make up a majority of the show, but in addition to that: the end is nigh for Rollins/Jordan, after Jordan wussed out on Rollins last night; I expect them to call for their rematch, with Rollins making it a "Hey, either you shape upa nd pull your share, or else," at which point the Jordan heel turn finally happens.... Woken Matt vs. Bray Wyatt ain't over yet.... expect the cruisers to get some quality TV time tonight, as their title is vacant and they have a new GM coming to 205 Live tomorrow night....

Oh, and Jonathan Coachman is back! Granted, he tended towards annoying when playing a character in WWE last time around, but he's also replacing Booker T on commentary, so it's a pretty low bar in terms of what it takes to be an improvement.... and Coach clears that bar....

That is all. End communication.

The flOOr is yours, OO Nation. Don't wait till after 11pm to post, either. Pre-show previewing and prognosticating is certainly welcome. So discuss, debate, and rate!

Definitely not looking forward to a full three hours of a Rousey-fellating session. Might be skipping this one altogether.

I definitely am looking forward to it. Might even watch it live without DVR delay.

Womenís Elimination Chamber

Told ya so.

Adding: I have never in my life been this interested in womanís wrestling. I feel like a half dozen ladies made ďthe leapĒ last night. Asuka and Sasha are absolutely two of them.

I hope this Last Man Standing match being now doesn't mean it craps out in about five minutes. Although, with Strowman, a match ending super fast could easily translate into some kind of fun spot.





Oh, I love legitimate theatre.

I'm sorry, Asuka, but I don't speak Japanese. However, I do understand this language.

ETA: BAH GAWD HE SQUISHED HIM! HE SQUISHED HIM! AS GOD AS MAH WITNESS HE SQUISHED KANE TO HELL!!!

Also, how cool would it have been for a puddle of red juice to start flowing out from under all that? Good luck in your future endeavors, Mr. Mayor!

I did kind of find that whole Asuka/Banks face off to be a bit.... interesting. I approved! SO VERY MUCH.

Also, yeah, short bit of match, but I'll take Strowman flipping the Official WWE Announcer Platform onto Kane as a finish.

Edit: Braun Strowman: Good at his job.

Braun Strowman, the Forrest Gump of WWE.

Angle: STROWMAAAAAN! Why did you squish Kane to Hell, Strowman?!?!

Braun: ..........You told me to, General Manager.

At this rate, he'll break the entire chamber apart. Which would actually be pretty cool if pulled off right.

I can't help but wonder if that's it for Kane's in-ring career. I understand that not everyone gets to go out with a 20-minute segment to close Wrestlemania, but if that's the end of him it seems a bit anticlimactic for someone with his tenure.

I agree with Cole and Elias being most improved....when I first saw him I thought fodder....but he is really owning this gimmick, and has a good presence about him. I could see him being a player for a bit......but I thought the same about Luke Harper....and Wyatt for that matter and see where we are with them

Elias getting over doing a bit from Hollywood era Rock has been fun. But Iím not sure he has much of an upside.

Also...that Braun/Alexa Mixed Match Challenge promo was awesome. Having Alexa as Braunís keeper could be a worthwhile use for Miss Bliss once she drops the belt.

One of the 100 things about Pro wrestling that makes 0 sense to me


Two lackeys who protect a third when they know week end and week out they get their ass whipped....but they act like this time is going to be different. No fear at all....

Its right up there with the heel or the face for that matter talking shit to a wrestler before they climb the ropes to do a move.....surely they should know or have learned it will backfire.

Wrestling the only genre of entertainment where the characters don't have to learn anything.

The announcers talked about how good it was to see Pat Paterson last night. That's probably why this year's rumbles were better than the past several years.

Good match until the end. They're in the ring attacking Reigns. That's an easy DQ. Just let somebody get a clean pin for fuck's sake.

So is Asuka vs Sasha main eventing? Or is Cena vs Balor?

As an aside...Braun and Roman could easily work as a Mania match. Braun goes Braun at the Chamber to take out Roman and himself. Cena wins the Chamber. Cena vs Brock with Big Match John attempting to break Flairís record works as a Mania Main Event.
