WWE RAW Preview 4/19

From wwe.com



Less than 24 hours after Backlash, Monday Night RAW comes to you live from Calgary with all of the fallout from the pay-per-view spectacular.
WWE.com has just learned of a huge WrestleMania XX rematch. Chris Jericho will look to gain another measure of revenge when he takes on Christian in one-on-one action. Y2J was successful at Backlash, will his momentum carry over to this match?
Fans witnessed an amazing No Holds Barred Match between the legendary Cactus Jack and Randy Orton at Backlash. Despite being dropped on a bed of thumbtacks, Orton was able to pull out the win, further solidifying his Legend Killer claims. How will Orton celebrate his huge victory? Find out on Monday Night RAW.



Thoughts for RAW.


Will Victoria continue her quest to be Hulkster like and only do PPV's and Saturday Night Main Events?
Will The Rock return tonight to cut a "GET THE F OUT" promo on Austin again since he is gone again?
Will Fathead316 jump on the "Eugene is bad for the show" bandwagon?
Who will Ted Arcardi Version .06 beta, job to this week?
Will they take that stupid quad that SCSA was riding and give it to Johnny Nitro?
Will we hear any echo's of ECW this week, what in God's name are they going to do with Heyman?
Will HBK continue his "slide" back in to the character that made him who he is?
Who will get more time, the interview with the Champ, the Highlight Reel, or the Haitch Show?
Will Eugene wrestle his first match? (Please!!!)
Will Tajiri bounce back from that stunning defeat by The Coach?
Is Scott Steiner still alive?
Will they take Goldberg off the roster on WWE.com?
How do they expect older guys like The Rock, and Foley to keep comming back just so they can job?
And Finally, can RAW continue to provide the good programing it has for the past two weeks?

I'm wondering how Trips will handle his recent losing streak..

Will Foley say a piece on Orton, vice versa?

I hope the Jericho and Christian fued continues, but I'd love to see a new twist or angle to it within the next couple of weeks to freshen it up a bit. I'm really enjoying this long-running fued/story.

Long shot, but please make Victoria back to heel.

Longer shot, please get rid of Eugene.. please.

Overall, as usual, I'm expecting more talk, less action since it's directly after a PPV, but will be good to see some active mid-card action.

Orton.....hmmmm.


Just not feeling if from him, too much of a....baby face look to him. Not in the sence of the "wrestling" meaning of the word baby face, but the real term. And his mic work.

They sure are building him tho, but is just seems a bit forced. I would have loved to see him take the tacks tho, If that was legit, I got to hand it to him there, not many would do that. Props to him for that, big time.

First of all, I want to say that I still love Victoria.

Now that that's out of the way, what the hell did they do to Victoria? She's taking f'ing bows on the way to the ring? I turned my head when it looked like she was about to kiss a baby. Hopefully, Molly's chokeout stopped the flow of blood long enough to kill a few hundred brain cells so the old psycho Victoria will return.

Shawn Micheals will never...ever..be over in Canada.

The Oscar for Worst actress in the role of scared girl trapped by a monster:
Nominees are:
Torrie Wilson in 'Big Show Kills another wrestler by throwing him off of something High'
Lita in 'Kane steals the Undertaker/Steph angle from 2000'

And the winner is... Torrie Wilson!


Woohoo, Ivory's getting her own show!

This Just In is over. No Bichoff cartoon, no Bichoff commercial, guess this title change is for real!


Also, side note, this cartoon is funny as hell.

Nice match between Jericho and Christian...too bad it was ruined by a run-in

When are we going to get to see Gail Kim for more than 30 seconds on Raw?

I'm glad the WWE is putting some good matches on TV...now if they can just have Victoria go back to being crazy...on the same note, I miss Stevie Richards

A match between Gail Kim and Lita? They had to figure out a way to stop it from happening, otherwise, the doctor bills would have put WWE out of business.

I love when Flair does that delayed, face-first flop. Fortunately, he's done it every match he's had for the last 25 years. The crowd was waiting for it too, and ate it up.

Nice run-in, Tyson Tomko. Next time try to stay upright, banana heels. Way to impress!

More with Regal & Eugene. Regal is the only guy who can pull this off without looking like an *******.

I saw this mentioned in Usenet and it makes sense.

Why was Molly disqualified? She had what looked like a textbook sleeper hold on Victoria and the refs rang the bell. It wasn't an illegal choke.

I read that the guy that kicked Jericho was "Bane" from OVW. Looked like a baby Batista to me, not interested.

I marked for that flop too. Also chuckled when Benoit motioned that he was safe once he did it.

So, lemme get this straight...the WWE is trying to sell that Christian needs someone to run in and beat Jericho for him?

And, another for Regal. Glad he's back.

And, while I did get a little tired of "psycho" Vicky after a while, i'm already tired of "goody goody" Vicky.

<----------- Ready for the take it all off Victoria.

For the sake of an argument, why would Benoit come in to save Edge against Orton, Flair and Batista? If Trips H were there, I'd understand, but the other three?

And it does suck to be HBK. So many years later and those Canadians will never forget. I'm sure that Vince was hoping that HBK tapping out to Benoit would help. I guess it's gonna take a HBK squash against Bret to make them fans forget.
