The Truth shall set you free! The Truth should get to the point. R-Truth’s promo was like an episode of TNA Impact! ~ very long, loud, and only made two points. R-Truth put John Morrison in the hospital, and he wants a WWE Championship match. Oh, and so do a lot of other people because this is professional wrestling.
Welcome back to The Wrestling Times. Did anyone notice that the entire set of Raw, including the placements of the cameras were at an exact opposite? The “WWE” logo on the entrance ramp, usually on the right, was on the left, and Michael Cole’s “Cole Mine” was placed on the right rather than the left. Made watching this week’s episode especially difficult because it felt as though the show was being broadcast through a mirror. Let’s discuss Monday Night Raw.
Though R-Truth’s actions sidelined Morrison anywhere between 4-6 weeks, Raw’s General Manager apparently likes seeing an angry black man at the top of every hour. Is this true? According to Truth, “this is a conspiracy.” So go nuts and speculate.
From all the talents acquired from WWE’s annual Draft, Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio were handpicked to participate in a No.1 Contender match; however, after last week’s controversial call at the end of The Miz’s rematch, the former champion was added to the scheduled match, making it a Triple Threat.
Anyone find it disturbing that out of the four people arguing over a championship opportunity, three were heels? Granted, Mysterio was the first Raw draft pick, but it made the end result far too predictable.
It has been obviously established that Mysterio and Del Rio are destined to feud again, so the only surprise was how effective would R-Truth be in the final decision? Frankly, he confused Raw’s layout by choosing to attack Rey Mysterio after the match. Is Truth now starting a program with Mysterio? What about Del Rio?
Because there’s nothing better than a third sequel to WrestleMania, at “Over the Limit,” John Cena defends the WWE Championship against The Miz in a “I Quit” match. Advise for Miz, go back and watch “Breaking Point” and look for instances where Randy Orton screwed up.
Since The Miz and John Cena have already competed in three matches, the spot for “Over the Limit” should have been given to somebody else. Why not Mysterio? This would have allowed for Miz’s and Del Rio’s gripe with their nemeses time to develop. Wouldn’t you say?
Raw’s GM has to be a heel. How is the stipulation that if Jerry Lawler touches Cole, he’ll be fired still in effect? Especially after Michael Cole knowingly pulled the, “Oh right? Your mom’s dead” card? As someone who lost their mother in February 2001, job or no job, Michael Cole would have been bleeding.
Interesting use of the Cole Mine when Lawler forced Cole’s tie through the open gap. Since Michael Cole made funny faces as he was repeatedly smashed against the glass booth, Lawler will not be fired. Yet it was speculated that Justin Roberts cringed at the sight, while, also speculating that over on the Blue Brand, a certain “American Dragon” mouthed the words, “That’s bull!”
Thanks to Jack Swagger speaking for Cole, Jerry Lawler will face Michael Cole at “Over the Limit,” where if Lawler loses, he will hand over his ring and personally induct Cole into the WWE Hall of Fame. Talk about a one-sided stipulation.
