Cool. So this is the new place for me and Eamonn to try to defend WWE against the masses. We'd better go put our battle armour on.

FOR THE GLORY OF VINCE MCMAHON OR SOMETHING! AAAAARRGGHHHH!

Good work SR. Makes sense to discuss all of WWE's weekly programming in one thread, the PPV's in another and TNA in a third.

WE THE PEOPLE

Hogan, Nash, Hall, HBK, Flair all there should be awesome, Billy and Road Dogg also, lots of possibilities, would love to see another Bryan/HBK confrontation, good chance to help put people over and not just a nostalgia fest. I would put Ascension over Billy and Road Dogg, then try to beat them up only for HBK and X Pac to make the save. Ascension can then brag about beating DX.

Anyone else think Konnor from The Ascension looks like a beefed up Michael Cole?

Open show with MLK Day montage, have most of your black wrestlers labour under horrible, minstrelly gimmicks.

No one watching Raw???
Caught some of it.

Mixed feelings about most of it! Hidden below for Spoiler reasons.

1) Why did they have The Ascension buried like that? Is a cheap temporary pop for some legends more important than making new legends? I'll admit, I loved seeing what happened, but the fact that it happened to The Ascension left a sour taste in my mouth. Turn an already established Tag team heel for that, or have Adam Rose and the Bunny be the ones taken out, so that he can heel turn and come back as Leo Kruger.

2) Sting.... What a terrible way for them to debut him on Raw. Putting him on the screen just standing there staring into the distance before walking onto the ramp and pointing, then leaving? When his music hit, the hype had died and the crowd barely reacted. Baffling as when his music hit at SS, it was what made it.

3) MLK day - Lets have black men humiliated.

I don't watch WWE anymore but I don't have like myself some nostalgia clips on youtube. And then watching nostalgic wrestlers return in current day makes me smile

Can't understand the logic of the whole Assension segment, when they came out I thought great they're going to beat down NWO, but from then on, it couldn't of got worse for them. How are they ever going to get over? Maybe they're going to face all these past teams to try and gain some legitimacy, but for crying out load at the minute, they're being buried!

Another crazy thing, is Lesnar a face now or what? Destroying the authority, the beginning segment, and going after Seth Rollins screams FACE. I think he will probably get the biggest reaction on Sunday.

I thought the Reigns segment, was done well and it was nice to see Ambrose get a victory.

Quite enjoyed that Raw. The main segments were executed brilliantly. The Ascension are a shite so a few WWE legends burying them is fine by me.

Just watching it now. For me. Lesnar and heyman should always be tweeners. Heyman vs HHH with an nxt invasion could go a long way to fix the broken ecw / wcw invasion angle.

One of my favourite ever moments still remains Brock and Heyman destroying HHHs offices

Just a thought... Am I right in thinking the rumble is in Philly?! ECW territory. They will be as behind Lesnar as you'll see.

Yep. Smark city. I think me and Oaf were talking about this a few weeks back. Huge potential for a repeat of last year's RR debacle if they go with Reigns.

Thought the final segment of Raw was really good.

No idea where they'll go with it. Reigns Rollins is obvious to try and placate. Cena wins. Rusev destroys him. Rollins cash in

Lesnar attacks Bryan during rumble.

I really hope they review the Reigns win, but the won't. If it was me and u wanted to swerve, I'd have steen win it.

reigns clearly isn't ready. He is really suffering from the lack of a secondary title focus. He needs mid card success. King of the ring, intercontinental belt. Chance to find his niche outside the shield.

They need to do this.

Have Bryan enter at number one, have Reigns eliminate him about 15th, then the bunny comes in, doing all Bryans moves including the yes chant. The bunny wins, takes off his mask, and he's Rey Mysterio.

Fuck outta here.

Raw has destroyed them, they were outstanding as champs on NXT. Another reason I want Balor, Itami, Owens, Neville, Zayn etc to stay with NXT.

Not seen it yet, but why are they using Sting on Lesnar? I mean really? He broke Taker's streak and was completely undeserving of that and then his non appearance title run has been a car crash for the overall product and it's ratings.

Please don't waste Sting on him.

It looks to me like WWE are building towards a Sting feud with HHH, not Lesnar.

its going to be Sting HHH, which I think may actually be a pretty good match.

I also think that they are going to do Taker Sting next year in Texas, but then who will lose?

That's what I was going to say, especially with Sting landing one at HHH at Survivor Series.

Looking forward to the Rumble now, although not too fussed about some of the undercard, just the triple threat and the Rumble itself.
