WWE Raw - 05/30/05



What will be the World Heavyweight Championís response to Triple Hís sledgehammer attack last week? Before RAW went off the air, The Cerebral Assassin left Batista bloodied and with a cryptic message, saying only, ďHell in a Cell.Ē Donít miss RAW as hopefully more details are revealed.

This and much more on Monday Night RAW at 9/8 CT only on Spike TV.

Batista vs HHH 3 PPV's in a row? Honestly, someone in creative needs to be fired.

I like how we just have a 3 week tournament to decide a #1 contender, they blow off the match on a RAW, and HHH comes out and demands his own title match, on PPV nonetheless.

Normally I'd agree with you, but since I'm going to Vengeance, I say bring it on

Unfortunately I doubt Triple H loses 3 PPV's in a row.

Now that's how you do a bikini contest! Who cares who wins, as long as everyone looks hot & gets fucked up! Nice opening, with Big Vis being the exception... I just don't see the point to that storyline.

Take 1 part Billy & Chuck... 1 part Too Cool... Mix it up in the WWE Creative Mixing Bowl... You get, The Heart Throbs...

Well done... These guys suck.

What happens when the creative team has no idea what to do with your character? You get Stacy Keibler... Way to go on not getting lost in the suffle.

Jericho is gold... Nuff said.

Look Corkey... I mean Kane's gonna cry! I really like this angle.

Edge v. Benoit: Table Match...

Good match, enjoyable throughout... Bischoff's "Crusade" is retarded though.

HHH interview ran a bit long... But not the worst thing he's done, at least he shut up JR for a few minutes. Damn that guy does a lot of bitchin'...

Goldberg has a new car show coming??? "Auto Maniac" anyone else interested? Didn't think so.

"Chris Masters has been untouched here on RAW..." - JR

He's been fighting "fans" & Stevie Richards every week...

my comments on Chris Masters last week...
Rick Rude is rolling over in his fucking grave at this dead-pan ass.
This week Val Venis (Rick Rude of our generation) answers the challenge. Odd...

But I still don't see a point to Chris Masters...

Christian is, IMO, right behind Jericho in the skills department... Major improvments from a couple years back.

Very good ending to the Batista v. Hassan... Carnage Candy!

Victoria going beserk on those diva's made my day! She really nailed that one chick Candice with that high kick.

If Christian goes to Smackdown he needs to open with a "State of the Peeps" address. He's been gold on the mic.

What are they going to do with Victoria now? Is she going to have a storyline with Christy? I am glad that it happened, but it seemed like she is going after the divas and not the belt.

The Master Lock challenge has got to go. If they are going to do it, at least have both of them in the ring like a squash match when they come back from commercial. Nothing is worse than boring AND long.

Victoria is supposed to be the heel, but the fans were practically carrying her around on their shoulders. Why don't any of the WWE brass see that the fans fart all over these divas?

And Viscera is supposed to be a babyface. Didn't he carry off Lillian to rape her?

So now Bischoff is putting together his group to invade the ECW show. I'm not sure I like that idea. I think the nostalgia and action of ECW is enough to stand on its own.

Yeah, I was kinda interested in maybe checking the ECW thing out until I heard about the RAW invasion. That just sucks.

Maybe NewJack will be there and "accidentally" slit Bichoff's throat.

Love the Viscera stuff, but I was hoping they were going to go back to he and Lilian later in the show.

The Chris Masters stuff is pure crap... I assume at some point on a future Raw or PPV, he's going to offer the challenge to the locker room, a veteran/superstar is going to come down and break it.

I used to hate Christian but enjoy his character now. I liked the big ovation from the Canadian fans.

I think he would much rather slit Heyman's throat.

Great start with the Victoria heel turn. But it kinda blows because outside of Stacy and Lita, those girls in the ring are the only girls on Raw. And with Lita and Trish mending injuries, Vince is prolly rethinking letting Molly and Gail go. The women's title supposely will stay with Trish until she comes back.

Gee, hoe did I know that Christy was gonna win that swimsuit contest? Hmmm, puzzling. More puzzling is that it seems Candice doesn't know how to work that awesome body of hers in front of a large crowd. She seemed nervous about being in a bikini.

I would have loved to have seen the Dudley's during that tables match. I missed the Trips interview but paid for it later by catching the Masters time waste. I really thought that Hassan would interupt or say something about the Vince kiss-ass Memorial day opening. Oh well, another disappointing Raw (except for the Victoria heel turn).

I know this is off topic, sorry for that, but does anyone know where one might download the Beulah vs. Bill Alphonso match where he bled all over the ring?
