OOfficial Discussion Thread for: RAW (July 1, 2019)

Tonight on RAW: with the Extreme Rules PPV taking shape as another heavily cross-brand affair, the red brand will be focused on pretty much only one (1) RAW-centric story, with a bunch of obligatory wild card visitors from the blue brand...

The RAW-centric story is, of course, the "Winner Take All" Match, with WWEU Champ Seth Rollins and RAW Women's Champ Becky Lynch facing off against Boring Carbon and Lacey Evans; whichever team wins gets BOTH titles.... the heels are playing up the fact that Rollins romantic entanglements with Becky will be his undoing, as this is a No DQ/Anything Goes Match, and presumably, Seth cares more about his girlfriend than his belt... that little twist adds at least a little drama and uncertainty into the picture, something lacking if the Duo of Aggressive Apathy were once again challenging for those titles separately...

Then, you have the crossovers:

SD's Roman Reigns is teaming with the Undertaker to face RAW's Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon... WWE isn't promising the Undertaker, but tonight's RAW is basically in his backyard (Dallas), so you'd almost be disappointed if he wasn't... some explanation for why he randomly appeared would be very appropriate... Reigns is essentially a permanent wild card at this point... in the absence of the Undertaker, Miz is the likely surrogate, as he still has unfinished business with Shane...

RAW's Samoa Joe is the new #1 Contender for SD's WWE Champ Kofi Kingston... they've already announced the New Day as wild cards, with Big E and Eggsavier Woods facing The Viking Raiders... I hereby wager 1000 quatloos that it turns into a 6-man tag (with NO WRESTLING ALLOWED~! during the ad break where it turns into one, because Vince is a Very Stable Genius)....

Likewise, the PPV challenger for SD's Women's Champ, Bayley, is RAW's Alexa Bliss... it's less certain that Bayley will appear tonight, as there is a side story here: Nikki Cross actually beat Bayley to win the title shot for her friend Alexa.... and tonight, Alexa is having Nikki as a guest on A Moment of Bliss...

That's all we've got set for the Extreme Rules show, as of now.... but two obvious RAW-only matches they could set up would be: (1) AJ Styles challenging Ricochet for the US Title (Styles beat Ricochet in a non-title match last week), which may or may not involve the Good Brothers and their efforts to make Styles shut up about their losing streak.... and (2) The Revival defending the Tag Titles against the Usos....

Let's see, what else? Definitely more wacky hijinx with R-Truth, Mella, and the 7/11 EuroVision Title... after a week of radio silence, do we hear anything new from Bray Wyatt tonight, maybe?... oh, and I guess I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that WWE is hyping a HUGE MAIN EVENT for tonight, in which Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley fight in a Falls Count Anywhere Match.... I mean, it won't be as mind-bendingly stupid as tugs of war and arm wrestling (it might even be fairly decent on its own merits), but at this point, all that garbage has devalued the feud to the point that it's impossible to give any shits (your mileage may vary)...

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!

On the heels of last week's scintillating rope tug match, I was hoping tonight would be a Gay Chicken Match betwixt Lashley and Strowman. Oh well, I guess we'll have to make due with a #HOSSFEST!

This is WRONG. They aren't supposed to be doing things!

And now they're using up what now amounts to a year's worth of pyro for this spot! And Graves said a bad word! SHIT JUST GOT REAL.





Oh, I love legitimate theatre.

Lol that was the only part of this that felt halfway unplanned (although I could also see Vince approving that to appear more "edgy"). +1 for having an actual match kick off the show, -10,000 for attempting to sell your audience on both participants possibly dying. Desperate WWE gonna Desperate WWE!

On the plus side- We can now look forward to 25 replays of that spot tonight!

The Paul Heyman era of RAW is off with a bang ... Certainly different from the 20-minute opening promo we usually get.

I wonder if later in the show the cameras cut to the "local medical facility" where the falls count anywhere match has resumed.

The fun thought is that people have been tossed into those boards before without having them explode. Lashley and/or Strowman are MAGIC.

Edit: So the pattern for USA reality shows now appears to be "someone who may be famous in some fashion, but is extremely irritating regardless/wrestler/annoying nobody/wrestler."

Yeah, I mean I realize there aren't a ton of options to make that spot look realistic but the fact that I was having flashbacks to the pyro from Raw circa '99 while the "explosions" were happening didn't exactly help the overall effect.

What are the odds that, when we return from the commercial break, "the McMahons" have ordered this match to be restarted as a 6-man tag?

The odds were excellent, it appears! I honestly just figured the match was done. Because I managed to somehow briefly forgot the new Start/Stop Matches Card Rule.

Called it! After two weeks, the "no wrestling during commercials" rule has made matches terribly predictable - even with that change of pace opener.

Much like the sudden increase in 2 out of 3 falls matches.

Oh goody, 2 out of 3 falls match later. My excitement cup runneth over!

On the plus side? All singles matches can now morph into impromptu tag matches upon the inevitable restart, and all tag matches can morph into six-man matches! And maybe six-man matches can turn into sudden battle royals.

And I can't figure out why entirely, but I keep expecting Drake Maverick to adopt a ridiculous Irish accent.

Edit: WHAT THE HELL. That didn't have a number of additional falls OR a restart.

And.... Street Profits? For some reason? Are we about to have another pair of NXT tag champs vacate the titles after popping up on the main roster? If so, hope things go better than it did for the WarVikingExperienceRaiders.

Drake Maverick and R Truth are way more fun than a lot of things.

Feeding JTTSs to Cesaro is a good thing.

More Shane...not so much.

It took the Undertaker so long to walk up the entrance ramp we had time for an interview with both Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans.

I was going to make a joke about how Becky and Seth should steal the Kanelliseseseses theme, and I guess I managed to accidentally summon them.

Also, it'll be really sad if one of them loses in the PPV match and costs them their titles, and then that causes them to break up. I'd be very sad. So very sad. Because I'm invested in them being together.

Edit: NO NOT THE SPLEEN. NOT THE SPLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN.

Edit II: So, unless they've been doing some sort of "Maria is an overbearing, unstable asshole" thing on 205 Live, what's the purpose of any of this? Other than maybe just "hey, we need an onscreen couple that can face off against Seth/Becky, do we have anyone around like that?" And really, if they HAVEN'T been building up something like this elsewhere, why randomly do this bit? What the fuck is anything. AND WHAT ABOUT THAT SPLEEN???

Me, 15 minutes ago: "Oh, cool. Maybe this is Paul Heyman's doing, giving the Kanellises something to do. I mean, sure, they're just going out there to job, but they're getting a little bit of TV time. Can't hurt, right?"

Me, 15 seconds ago: "Welp."
