For 3 hours, wrestling fans were subjected to a non-stop array of despicably poor wrestling matches. The choices given by the GMs and Matt Striker were no-win situations for wrestling fans.
Who did the fans choose to face off against The Hart Dynasty? A) Usos B) Dudebusters or C) The Great Khali and Hornswoggle? The fans chose Khali and Hornswoggle, obviously. Monday Night RAW has become the new home for comedy sketches, so the children at home cannot resist seeing a giant teaming with a leprechaun.
What kind of competition did the fans choose for Santino Marella and Kozlov? A) Match? No… who would want that? B) Arm Wrestling? Tempting… but no. C) Dance off? It might be crazy enough to get some giggles. Vladimir did surprise everyone by how comedic he can be by still keeping to his stoic Russian gimmick.
What kind of match for the Divas? A) Six-on-six Divas Tag match? For the love of god, not another tag team match. C) Champion vs. Champion? So a 2-on-1 handicap, you say? B) Divas Battle Royal? Now, for those of you who do not understand the difference between a Battle Royal and a Divas’ Battle Royal… Men are eliminated when thrown over the top rope and both feet touch the floor. Women are eliminated when they just fall to the floor. I’m glad WWE spent the extra cash in picking out the sexiest women to provide zero wrestling action. More bang for your buck, I always say.
What stipulation for Big Show vs. Chris Jericho? Let me rephrase that, “How would you like Big Show to defeat Jericho?” Over the top rope? Body Slam Challenge? or Submission? It didn’t matter because Show did all 3.
WWE has been handed over to a generation of children who do not know wrestling from Saturday morning cartoons. So by letting the fans have the choice, you’ve just let children dictate the pace of RAW. But then again, look at the choices provided? Was it really a surprise to see how RAW actually turned out? Everything from Taboo Tuesday, Cyber Sunday, to Viewer’s Choice is rigged to cater to what WWE management and creative want.
