Show: The Season Premier of WWE Monday Night Raw
Author: Who else but me, Cade Carnage!
Venue: Baltimore Arena, Baltimore, MD
That’s right WarGods, tonight is the season premier of WWE’s Monday Night Raw!
We’re in line to have one hell of show; much better from last week’s disaster, which I take it was the Season Finally if we want to be consistent here. It was a horrible season finally; as a matter of fact so horrible that if it was an actual seasoned television show I would never watch it again, just out of spite. But it’s not, and considering I’m not a big NFL fan WWE can rely on my viewership for tonight’s show.
So what’s in line? Well we have a SummerSlam rematch pinning Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt goes 1-on-1 with Jericho in a steel cage. Ohh and for some fucked up reason Jerry Springer will be on to do an intervention with the Bella twins. Don’t know if you guys have seen the similarities throughout these couple of weeks.
Week 1 – Brie and Nikki talk with Lawler in the ring
Week 2 – Brie and Nikki talk with Steph in the ring
Now Week 3 – Brie and Nikki talk with Jerry Spinger in the ring.
It’s the same dam thing every week! This time though I hope WWE has learned to not end the show with these two. If they want good strong ratings don’t relieve your mistakes.
In addition there have been some rumors of a Dean Ambrose return tonight. If it happens I won’t be surprised if he attacks Rollins. But we’ll wait and see.
Anyways let’s get on with this slobber-knocker-fart-master!
