Welcome back to The Wrestling Times. The power of DVR allows you to pause, fast forward, rewind, and play at your convenience. Problem is when one decides to watch Monday Night Raw before WWE Tough Enough. After C.M. Punk’s match, Michael Cole blabbed the results of TE. Damn you, Michael Cole. Let’s discuss Raw.
The wait is over, Kharma is indeed “with child.” Oh, and Jim Ross called her “fat” when she tried out for Season 2 of MTV’s Tough Enough. Leading Kharma to pursue her “wrestling” training in Japan, and compete in every nitty-gritty “wrestling” promotion in the world so she could be a “wrestling master.” Everyone said that Kharma’s dreams of competing inside of a WWE ring would never come true. Well, never say never.
I respect Kharma for telling us upfront what the issue was and why she will be leaving WWE for a year. Problem is, her gimmick is completely shot.
How convincing will a return feud with The Bellas be one year from now?
That poor dad, he was just taking his kid to watch a wrestling show, and instead gets talked down to and a cup of soda splashed into his face. But it’s okay, John Cena gave him an arm band, which apparently makes everything all right. Give it up for that man for putting up with being humiliated on Monday Night Raw. WWE probably gave his kid a whole bunch of free autographed merch, so as not to be sued. But hey, welcome to professional wrestling.
If R-Truth’s angle with Cena is anything like The Miz’s first angle — and it is — it will end in a squash at WWE’s “Capital Punishment” pay-per-view.
Alex Riley is strongly being pushed as a potential main event babyface. What’s the recipe for “The People’s Hero?” Attack The Miz and Michael Cole. Instant babyface!
Who else had this treatment before they dropped it due to The Nexus angle? Daniel Bryan.
Dolph Ziggler is back to sporting the platinum blonde hair, and going after the U.S. title. Seems like a step down for a former World Heavyweight Champion. (Yes, that happened.) At least on SmackDown, Ziggler was moving up, but on Raw, both Ziggler and Kofi Kingston have remained stagnant in the midlevel title hunt. These guys need to start breaking into the main event via special tag teams or just run ins.
What will Jack Swagger and Evan Bourne gain from their series of matches? The score is 1-1, making the rubber match next week. Can we finally see Evan Bourne go after the U.S. strap? A series of matches with Kofi would be incredible.
That’s it for this post. What do you guys think about R-Truth’s push, Kharma’s farewell, and Alex Riley’s face turn? Comment in the comment section below, tweet me @WrestlingTimesX, and share this post via the share buttons at the end of this post. Let the world know about The Wrestling Times.
