JG's 1/22 Raw Insanity: God Forgives Shawn Michaels For Killing Edge, Mr. McMahon Has More Money Than Donald Trump, and UMAGA....GET THE TABLES!
By James Guttman
Backstage at a WWE Live Event - Last week....
All the wrestlers are chatting in the dressing room as they wait for the meeting to start.
Vince McMahon: Hey, Shane-o. Glad we could get everyone together. I'm all set for today's speech to the roster. In fact, last night I went out and rentedGlengarry Glen Ross from Blockbuster as inspiration.
Shane McMahon: Not sure if I saw it.
Vince: No? It was awesome. It had Pacino in it. Alec Baldwin. Jack Lemmon. Ed Harris. Kevin Spacey. Uh…the grandfather from Little Miss Sunshine.…
Shane: Little Miss Sunshine? Don’t remember that one.
Vince: You didn't see it? With Steve Carell?
Shane: The guy who does the Bill O'Reilly gimmick?
Vince: No. That's Steven Colbert.
Shane: Oh…you mean the alien that eats cats?
Vince: Let me have your attention for a moment. 'Cause you're talkin' about what...you're talkin' 'bout...bitchin' about that finish you blew, some son of a bitch don't want to put you over, somebody don't like how you're selling, some Canadian you're trying to screw, so forth, let's talk about something important. Are they all here?
Shane: All but one. Jeff Hardy's late.
Vince: Well, I'm going anyway. Let's talk about something important.
Vince stops short as he sees Snitsky pouring coffee.
Vince: Put that coffee down. Coffee's for contenders only.
Surprised, Snistksy stops short and spills coffee on his Spongebob Squarepants shirt.
Gene Snitsky: No. It's Snitsky.
Vince: You call yourself a salesman, you son of a bitch?
Vince: I mean sports entertainer. You call yourself a sports entertainer, I meant to ask. Not salesman. My bad. Sport entertainer. So, are you...you, uh, son of a bitch?
Rob Van Dam: (rasing his hand from across the room) I can't hear you back here, Mr. Mcmahon.
Vince: You certainly don't pal 'cause the good news is you're fired. The bad news is you got - all you got, just one week to regain your jobs, starting with tonight, starting with tonight's skits. Oh, have I got your attention now? Good. 'Cause we're adding a little something to this month's pay per view spectacular. As you all know, first prize of the Royal Rumble is a title shot at Wrestlemania. Anybody want to see second prize? Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is your fired. You get the picture? You laughing now? You got leads. Mitch and Murray paid good money. Get their names to sell them. You can't close the leads you're given, you can't close shit, you are shit, hit the bricks pal and beat it 'cause you are going out!
Vince: The leads are weak?! The f**kin' leads are weak?
RVD: I know. I didn't say that you didn’t…
Vince: F**k you, that's my name! You know why, mister? Cause you drove a Hyundai to get here tonight, I drove an 800,000,000 spaceship. That's my name.
RVD: I drove a rental car here. I think it's an Acura.
Tatanka: (standing up) Hey…wait a minute! This is the speech from Glengarry Glenn Ross. That's one of my favorite…
Vince: You're fired. Get out!
Tantanka hangs his head and leaves the room.
Vince: (To Shelton Benjamin) And your name is you're wanting. You can't play in the Game's game? You can't pin them? Then go home and tell Charlie Haas your troubles. Because only one thing counts in this life. Get the fans to buy tickets for the seats which are dotted! You hear me you f**kin' f…
Jimmy Wang Yang: I didn't say nothing, boss.
Vince: (taking off his watch) You see this watch? You see this watch?
Wang: Yeah. It's nice…
Vince: That watch costs more than your hat. I made 970,000,000,000 dollars last year, how much you make? You see pal, that's who I am, and you're nothing. Highflier? I don't give a shit. Good net following? F**k you, go home and play Warcraft. You want to work here - win. You think this is abuse? You think this is abuse, you Ico-Pro-sucker? You can't take this, how can you take the abuse you get from JBL in the shower!? If you don't like it, leave. I can go out there tonight, use four guys, and make 17 pay-per-views for a gross of 15,000,000 dollars. Tonight. In three hours. Can you? Can you?
Vince: Go and do likewise. AIDA. Get mad you son-of-a-bitches. Get mad. You know what it takes to sports entertain? It takes brass balls to sports entertain. Go and do likewise, gents. The money's out there, you pick it up, it's yours, you don't, I got no spots for you. You want to go out on those skits tonight and get over. Get over, the world's yours, if not, you're going to be kissing my ass on TV. And you know what you'll be saying. Bunch of losers sitting around Orlando: ''Oh yeah, I used to be a pro wrestler. It's a tough racket.'' (takes fake drink) These are the new leads. These are the Glengarry leads. And to you, they're gold.
Brian Kendrick: That's the leads the salespeople use in Glengarry Glen …
Vince: (stopping short and glaring at Kendrick) I'm sorry, midget? What did you have to say?
Brian: I said, that's the leads that...ummm... Mr. McMahon uses in his magically delicious speech.
RVD: You talk to yourself?
Vince: Shut up. That's it. I'm done.
Vince leaves the room.
RVD: (staring at the ceiling) Why can't I just get fired already?

Last week, lots of people got bludgeoned by lots of other people. In the end, Shawn Michaels stood tall and Randy Orton had his head flattened like a Legend Killing Pancake.
What's up, butternuts? It's another fun-sized edition of Monday Night Raw. This week's show has Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler jumping out of their seats and reaching for the sky. In fact, we're kicking things off with your favorite active DX member. Yup. Shawn Michaels! That’s right. Come on, Shawn. Get out here and show us that smile. Where's that smile? Let's see that smile! There it is!
Break it down. DeGeneration X is in the house. DeGeneration X also happens to just be one guy now, but it's all the same. It's not about the members. It's about the theme music. As long as you have the theme music, you're good to go. They could give the theme music to Nathan Jones and people would still pop for it. Anyway, DX's theme song is here…along with Michaels. The Boy Toy takes the microphone and immediately starts dry-heaving or something. He asks Lafayette if they can feel the feeling in the air. It's a feeling that ol' HBK felt last week when he slammed that steel chair into Randy Orton's head. It's the feeling that tells Shawn he can beat up any bully on the playground. Now, for the last few years, the Rocker has tried to squash the feelings.
"That stops today. No matter what the odds. No matter what the obstacles. The Heartbreak Kid, The Showstopper is back! And he believes that he can once again be the WWE Champion. This Sunday, the road to WrestleMania begins. A 30 man over-the-top rope Royal Rumble to determine who will go to the main event at Wrestlemania. I'm going to take my new reborn passion and may God have mercy on the 29 other individuals who dare to get in my way! No mere mortal man is ever, ever going to keep me from fulfilling my destiny and I promise…"
It's a Destiny now? 12 years ago, it was a Boyhood Dream. Now it's a Destiny. OK. Anywho, the Boy Toy's promise is never heard. He's interrupted by the guy you thought you knew. He's the guy who sees clearly on this day. He's Edge. Giggidy. Giggidy.
Adam Copeland has his woolen cap snug on his head and his shiny gold belt draped over his shoulder. He stares down the Heartbreak Kid. Adam laughs at his hopes and dreams. You think the Rumble is your destiny, Shawny? Bah! Humbug! The Royal PPV is going to be a Royal disappointment for you, pally. You ain't winning! Edge is! Ha! Then, he's going to go to Mania and win the WWE Title! Double Ha! Cause Copeland has been to the mountain top twice and…
"Shut up! I got a feeling you need to come down here so I can tear you apart. You gutless coward!"
Edge walks the ramp and Shawn springs from the ring to meet him. From there, they embark on a huge pull-apart brawl that goes all through the crowd, to the back of the arena, and eventually out of sight. As his crazy Keith Richards hair flails to and fro, Michaels gets his shots in at the Canadian and vice-versa. Will they kill each other? Find out after the break.
Commercial Break. Hamburgers can't talk. Even if they could, I doubt they'd debate over how much they should charge someone to eat them. I imagine they'd cry a lot and try to hatch plans that help them escape from being devoured by hungry people.
Back from the break, Shawn Michaels and Edge can't be restrained. They battle all through the back of the building and even fall into the pile of precariously placed curtain rods that always seem to be leaning against a wall when there's a backstage brawl going on.
Wow! Look at you. You're in great shape, but your face is just a little busted.
Thanks. I guess. Actually, I got it smashed up in a ladder match against the Hardys.
Oh, sorry Joey. I was actually talking to Melina.
1. WWE Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy pinned Joey Mercury
Jim Ross takes us back to last Friday for clips from MNM's attack on Matt Hardy. (JG Note: J.R. is like your own personal Doc Brown. Only he doesn't have a Delorean, he has Barbecue Sauce. When you think about it, Barbecue sauce is better than a Delorean anyway. So it's: Ross 1 Doc Brown: 0.) The MNM-Hardys feud was on display here and I have to say that his feud is one of WWE's best put-together conflicts in a while. I know it's weird to have it stretched across all the brands, but, in a way, that works for them. Everyone has their own spots on the separate shows, but they can all get in the ring and work with each other when it comes to tag teams. In the end, Nitro got in his punches, but couldn't stay to do anymore damage than he did. Referee Jack Doan tossed Melina and John from the vicinity and ordered the match to continue. Continue it did. However, when Jeff nailed a Twist of Fate, it was too much for Joe's fragile face to take. He rolled around in pain and found himself the victim of a three count. Nitro and Mel ran back out to help him, but it was too late. Oh, woe is them.
Vince McMahon is all pissy backstage when John Coachman runs in to greet him. He assures the chairman that he has the issue between Edge and Shawn Michaels under control. In typical, Vince/Coach skit form, things wind up with Jonathon being clueless and the great VKM saving the day with his mental prowess. Vinnie Mac asks his apprentice what he plans to do about the Michaels-Copeland Conflict. When John replies that he wants to throw both men out of the building, Vincent offers a better plan. Tonight - The One Man DeGeneration X versus The R Rated Superstar in a…Street Fight! Ah! AHHHHH! Now, that that's out of the way, please Fair Coach. Leave the owner be. He has something else he needs to take care of. Uh oh. I bet that something else involves someone with a reality show and bad hair. Whada'you think?
Commercial Break. There's an election for an open Senate seat in New York. Craig Johnson wants my support. Poor Craig is like the kid who was sick when school started and didn't end up starting until two months later, so everyone picks on him. I can just picture Nancy Pelosi giving this guy wedgies and biffs.
Mr. McMahon and John Coachman are both here. Vince is ready to share his reply to Donald Trump's letter this week. As the fans chant "you suck," Jerry Lawler says "Used truck? Mr. McMahon would never buy a used truck." I laughed. After that, Mr. McMahon read his letter:
Now that your issue with Rosie is simmering down, it's no surprise that her television ratings are once again in the toilet, which is where everyone's mind hair in Lafayette seem to be tonight. And while the Apprentice is doing well, it could be doing a hell of a lot better. How? By having a very special guest on the Apprentice. A huge star! And that star would be me! By having a special star on the Apprentice, uh, ratings would soar. Why? Because I've been on television for over 35 years. Wherever I go, people tune in to see me! Hell, I single-handedly carried the ratings for Monday Night Raw. My presence alone is responsible for USA being the #1 Network in all of cable.
If you're an idiot - say what!"
"What I thought. Proved my point here in Louisiana."
Lawler laughs and I join him. I thought that Big Mac had finally outsmarted the crowd. Guess what. No. It just made the chants a bit louder. When they finally simmered down…like Donald's feud with Rosie, Vinnie told the crowd he loved them and wanted to show his appreciation. The fans wanted to show theirs as well. They chanted "asshole." (JG Note: Jerry Lawler didn't think of anything else that the asshole chant sounded like. Not a "dump truck" moment, if you will.) Saint Vince forgives the crowd's chanting. In fact, as payment for their undying love, he promises to show his appreciation…next week. I don't like the sound of that.
Neither does John Cena. The WWE Champion bops into the scene and mocks how Vince McMahon has become "Brother Love" with all his fake love. Come on, Daddy Mac. Listen to the people, "Pussbag." They don't want to hear you talk, yet you still do it! Yo. And what up with Donald Trump? You are obsessed with him! Come on, Boss. Remember when you were obsessed with DX? Well, you ended up with your head up Big Show's ass! Yuck! What about the obsession with starting your own football league? Remember that stupidity? Damn, son. Now you're all up on The Donald's jock. Why? Cause you're a shameless self promoting egomaniac just like him!
Coachman refutes all these accusations and said that Trump is a much bigger shameless self promoting egomaniac than Vince. In fact…
"Just because Donald Trump has more money than Mr. McMahon does not mean…"
Commercial Break. Tomorrow night on Sci-Fi, Lashley takes on Bob Holly in the main event of ECW. No wonder USA is the #1 network on cable. If I had to choose between either ECW or Monk or Silk Stalkings or whatever else USA is playing now, I'd go with USA.
2. Super Crazy pinned Chris Masters
As the match began, they did one of those little boxes in the corner with a wrestler talking things. You remember. They used to do it on WWF Challenge and Superstars. This one was a Super Crazy promo. He explained that he attacked Chris Masters last week because, "I am Super! And I am Crazy! I am Super Crazy! Ahaahahahaha!" I laughed out loud. I missed Juvi. Hopefully Crazy can fill the insane Lucha star promos void. After that, Jerry Lawler referenced a great scene from Talladega Nights and said that Crazy was "All jacked up on Mountain Dew." Between that line and the dump truck thing, Jerry is definitely scoring points with me tonight. In the end, Super…CRAZY got the surprising win over Chris Masters. Then again, was it so surprising? Meh. Can't they find someone else for Super to feud with? How about Masters? He bounces between Carlito and Crazy. That's his career now. Well, that and the whole "I'm big, now I'm little, now I'm big again" magic trick. Chris locked in his trademark Full Nelson, but Super Crazy was Super Smart. He fell back on top of the Masterpiece…and pinned him!
In the backstage area, John Coachman is still annoying Vince McMahon about Donald Trump. He kisses his boss' butt, but gets not love back. Vince, instead, gives him a small bit of leverage. Tonight, you have John Cena, right? You're fighting him? Well, tell you what…how about if you have lunch with Donald Trump next week? Coachman looks confused and Mr. McMahon makes things crystal clear for him - your match is still on! Growl!
Commercial break. WrestleMania is 69 days away. If they don't have Val Venis do a promo tonight, then they never will.
Backstage,. Maria is joined by former Philly and Met, Kenny Dykstra. The Dyker tells Maria to keep her eyes open for him at the Royal Rumble. He's gonna make him some history and win the whole damn thing. No matter who must fall, Ken will see it through and make 2007 his year. Yes. 2007 will be The Year of The Dykerino! (JG Note: Now that's a T-Shirt waiting to happen. Yeah. Money, baby. Money.)
Randy Orton is all bruised up and pissed off when he runs into Edge backstage. There's a whole lot of bad blood between Cowboy Bob's son and Christian Cage's fake brother. Seems that Randall ain't too keen on being left for dead. Not cool, man. Not cool. Last week, as the RKO got slammed in the skull with a chair, R Rated took off. Whatever, Edgeman. Do your thing. Orton wants you to go out there and have your sissy little street fight. After that…whatever happens happens. The way Randy says it, it's meant as a threat - not a slick way of trying to get with a woman. Not like, "Whatever happens happens, baby." More like, "Whatever happens happens, punk!" It's a small difference, but a big one all at the same time.
Retro Commercial Break.
Sorry, man. I'm just about to log off the internet. There's plenty of other computers in the library though.
My time is now.
I know. I'm sorry. I'm getting off.
You can't see me.
Ahhhh! Put the gun down!
The match is one and John Cena is here. But, wait. Before the match starts, John Coachman confronts him with a microphone. Let's do this, Cena. But first, let's do the obvious swerve thing. Your match with the Coach is set in stone. However, Jonathon can throw in a special pre-match. Yes, sir. We're going to send some random guys down to the ring, Royal Rumble style. Instead of focusing on eliminating one another, they're going to focus on you! Muwahahahahaha! With that, the Coachman summons the resident tag team mid-card jobbers to the stars.
3. The Great Khali won some weird Royal Rumble-like match-thing over Viscera, Charlie Haas, Shelton Benjamin, Lance Cade, Trevor Murdoch, and John Cena
First two men down were Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch. Duh. They're like the Stooges at this point. The Mean Street Posse. Beverly Brothers. Bolsheviks. They're never going to win the big one. If they do, it won't be in their current incarnations. Someone's going to need to break away before one of them is going over Cena. The Champion saw to that. He tossed Murdoch over the ropes and seemed to have things set. Until…
The World's Greatest Tag Team came down the ramp. Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin joined Lance in beating the Marine down. After mere moments of that…Viscera showed up and joined the fray. What can make matters worse than that?
The Great Khali!
Yes. The Great Khali slowly walked up the aisle and cleaned house…on the heels! He beat up Shelton Benjamin. He pounded down Charlie Haas. He beat pounded up down Lance Cade and tossed Viscera to the floor easily. With his arms stretched out in the air, Khali basked in the cheers of confused fans, who hadn't figured out he wasn't turning good, but just beating people up because he's nuts. After no-selling a top rope attack by John Cena, The Great One dumped Dr. Thuggy out of the ring and had his hand raised as the winner of this weird, nonsensical, Royal Rumble-like mess. Yay! Mess!
4. WWE Champion John Cena defeated John Coachman via disqualification in a non-match
As soon as the last thingamabob ended, this one started. Coachman ran in and covered the prone Cena. But, John kicked out at two. How was the white rapper rewarded for his amazing comeback? Umaga came down the ramp and beat the holy hell out of him. Sucks for him. Umi pounded The C-Man into oblivion and finished him off by a sick looking table spot.
Well, maybe it wasn't the most spectacular table spot ever. I'm sure there were better ones. Then again, you don't see them so often so they mean more…hey! Wait a minute! Good call, WWE. This one seemed to stand out because it doesn't happen much. With the WWE Champ spread out on the table, Maga hit a top rope splash and put him straight through. Whitey Von Rappy appeared to be half dead. Officials ran down to assist him and we went to commercial.
Commercial Break. Maureen O'Connell doesn't want me to send Craig Johnson to that open NY Senate Seat. She says that he wants to charge me lots of money and played the sound of a toilet flushing. Poor Craig. He's not even there yet and he's getting hazed.
Before the break, Umaga cracked John Cena in half. The officials have made zero progress in getting him out of the ring for the duration of the commercial break. Pretty crappy job on their parts. With the WWE Champion dry heaving, referees helped him from the ring while the creepy doctor with the bowtie asked him questions. The announcers mention how this is out of character for the Doctor of Thuganomics. What does this mean for his Royal Rumble Last Man Standing match with Umaga on Sunday? Only time will tell. It's a very grave situation. Oh the humanity! Sniff, sniff Poor John. Anyway, switching gears - heeeeeeeeeeeeere's boobies!
5. Candice Michele and Mickie James defeated Victoria and Melina when Michele pinned Victoria
Candice Michele had her face busted by the insane pizza-maker of the WWE Women's Division, Victoria, a few weeks back. She responded by getting a nose job. Now she's back. Jerry Lawler assures us that tonight's match has the chance of a wardrobe malfunction. So that's enough to excite him. (JG Note: The prospect that women might - but probably won't - lose a section of clothing for a fraction of a second excites him. Whatever floats your boat.) As for the match itself, it was what it was. The four female performers on the regular rotation did their thing and basically auditioned for the Trish spot. In the end, if I had to pick one, I 'd say that Candice is most likely to succeed here. She looks like she could settle into the spot and, with her new look, she could definitely do it. It looks like WWE had the same idea, because in the end it was Candy getting the pinfall on the lady I ain't supposed to mess with.
Last week on Raw, Carlito confronted Mr. McMahon and got beat up by the Great Khali. The Great Khali - now he's cool. He could use Carlito as his shower loofa.
6. Kenny Dykstra pinned Carlito with a handful of tights
Torrie Wilson is wearing Lita's old outfit or something. It's one of those, wide open up the front shirts that looks like it's ready to blow open and show you her ish. But it doesn't. It's a "Ha Ha Fooled Ya" Shirt. Kenny Dykstra was wearing pink and black and went into battle headband less. He held his own against the afro-headed apple biter and exchanged offense with him. The whole gimmick here is that Ken is arrogant, but talented. Good gimmick to have. It gets you wins. He got one here. Carly took the fall once again and ended up on his back, out flat, in Kenny's Cadillac. With a handful of trunks and a yearning for the touch of a headband across his noggin, The Dyker scored himself a Cool victory.
Last week, lots of people got bludgeoned by lots of other people. In the end, Shawn Michaels stood tall and Randy Orton had his head flattened like a Legend Killing Pancake. Hey. Deja vous.
Commercial Break. There's a new horror movie called "The Messengers." I bet they have scary bicycles.
Backstage Eugene and Super Crazy are chatting when they meet up with Cryme Tyme. They claim to be selling numbers for the Royal Rumble. They negotiate with Super Crazy and eventually sell him an entry that he's happy with. After Crazy makes his purchase, Gene takes his spot in line. He pays the criminals for a number and lucks out with the big 3-0. 30! Dinsmore is dinlighted! He's jumps for joy, but is talked into giving his number up….for #1! The tag team scalpers convince the special star that 1 is better than 30. (JG Note: Oh. So that's why they turned him heel. You can make "dumb" jokes about handicapped people…but only if they're bad.) Eugo takes his cash from his trunks and hands it to the salesmen. He chants "I'm number one" and runs off. Once he's gone, JTG asks Shad if the entries they're selling are real. He's told they're not. He then asks if the "Scream" painting they sold earlier was real. Again, he's told it's counterfeit. They laugh. They dance. They sing "More Money" and bounce away.
That's when Ron Simmons walks in with a big framed copy of "The Scream." All it needed was either a laugh track, a bada-boom-ching drum solo, or the famous Wah-waaaaahhhh trombone sound.
Commercial Break. Who will be the next Nashville Star? I don't even know who the current one is.
6. Edge pinned Shawn Michaels in a Street Fight.
This was everything you'd expect it to be. It was very old school in its deep-rooted hatred and violence. What sets apart Rated RKO's feud with DX is that it's based on sadism and hardcore wrestling. Overall, it's made for a much better conflict than the silly one they had with Vince McMahon. Michaels is amazing at a number of things in the ring, but his best work is when he's selling a beating or mounting a comeback. Few can touch him in that respect. Here, we saw all of that. Every weapon came out to play. There were ring steps and ladders and chairs and everything. It was totally ECW-style. Well…can we still say that? Guess not. Anyway, the scariest part of the match had nothing to do with weapons. An exhausted Edge picked up Kid Heartbreak for an Electric Chair drop, but his legs gave way. Shawn came crashing down to the mat, nearly hitting his neck and caused more than a few gasps. Luckily for HBK, but not so lucky for Copeland, Michaels was OK. He mounted a comeback, hit a Superkick, and then, with chair in hand, hobbling and empty-eyed like Terry Funk in Philly, Michaels aimed for the R Rated Man. All looked good in the world. Well, all except for Randy Orton. Out of nowhere, the Legend Killer arrived and pegged the Boy Toy with an RKO. The Rocker fell and Adam made the cover. Three seconds later and The Edgeman is your winner.
You know what's coming next, right? Don't'cha? It's the last Raw before the Royal Rumble. Come on! Uh duh!
Orton tossed Edge over the top rope. He stood tall in the ring…until Ric Flair ran out. Naitch took it to Randy…until Kenny Dykstra ran out! He went to town on Slick Ric…until Carlito ran down! It's a slobber knocker! It's a muthaf**kin' slobber knocker, King!
Eventually Saint Shawn of San Antonio regained his composure and cleared the ring of all who stood in his way. Michaels takes over the "middle-aged and crazy" gimmick as we fade to black.
All in all.. Not a bad show. It usually tough to promote the Royal Rumble match since there's so many people fighting each other at once. With the brand split, WWE is able to focus on individual feuds and the few guys from each brand that are in the Rumble match itself, instead of 30 guys at once.
I wasn't a big fan of the messy John Cena Mini-Royal Rumble thing, but I liked how they made Cena all but dead before the big show. It adds intrigue to his match with Umaga and showed that Samoa Jamal can keep the champ down if he goes crazy enough. Khali also took another step into bringing his awkward chops to the main event slot.
Donald Trump took a backseat this week, but it looks like we're only getting started. While there may have only been a few minutes devoted to him on tonight's show, I'm afraid that as we ramp up, that'll change to an hour and a half.
Tonight really belonged to Edge and Shawn Michaels. HBK is one of the best performers of our time and the type of guy that some people won't realize the star power of until he's retired. The few years that Shawn was away from the ring, made people eager to see him again. Tonight reminded you why. He went out there and put on an old school street fight with Copeland. It was a great match to close the show and a good way to add a new hardcore dimension to his character.
In a nutshell, the Royal Rumble is this weekend and it's usually one of the top shows of the year. If, for no other reason, it's unique and different. Also, for the first time in a while, it's hard to pick a winner. Sure, some have better chances than others, but it's still less predictable than it's been in the past.
So there you, Raw is done and the world moves on. In case you guys missed it, our own Doctor Tom Prichard is back in WWE.. Schedule permitting, Dr. Tom's final Tuesdays With Tom should be up tomorrow on ClubWWI.com and will be part of our big Radio Free Insanity special. The first ever guest on Radio Free Insanity is going to become the first ever WWE guest on Radio Free Insanity. How's that for coming full circle?
Nothing will be able to replace Tom Prichard, but we have a solution. Over the next four weeks, we'll be debuting FOUR NEW SHOWS on ClubWWI.com hosted by top names in the business. I confirmed the last one this morning and I can promise you, you won't be disappointed. In fact, while I don't want to give away who they are just yet, I can say that all of them have worked for WWE within the last five years. Who are they? You'll find out...
Thanks again for reading, guys! Be Well!
