The Raw Score

A recap and review of Monday Night Raw.

Hosted by: “Candy Man” Jay Shannon

“Just when you think you know all the answers…I change the question”–”Rowdy” Roddy Piper

Get ready to shake things up.

Tonight, I have the honor of having a new reader, Miss Helena. She was my beloved Jean’s Foreign Exchange Student from a few years back. Helena is in town for a few weeks to visit. I got to meet her, on Sunday, and she is absolutely lovely. She promised to read my column, if I mentioned her.

Stephanie McMahon came out to open the show. The crowd in Montreal was seriously hostile towards the Billion Dollar Princess. She welcomed the crowd to the show. She brought out Shane McMahon. Dang! They were deafening. Guess the crowd hasn’t forgotten the “Montreal Screwjob”.

The two siblings hugged and got down to business. Shane made the ring announcer re-announce him. That is getting SO old. He made him do the announcement in French. The announcer didn’t speak French. Shane did. Yawn. Get on with it. “You Suck” rang out from the crowd. She got a shot in on Kurt Angle. Shane drew super cheap heat by making fun of the French spoken in Montreal.

Shane wanted to run a recap video of recent events. It was a shot at Miz.

Time to learn who was the first person coming to Raw…The Miz! Miz slid in the ring and started beating on Vince’s boy. Shane ran Miz into the ring post. Shane boxed the ribs. Miz cracked Shane with a chair. Shane ran for the hills. Miz was busted open, right at the hair line.

We saw highlights of Seth Rollins beating Brock Lesnar for the Universal title.

Ricochet, Aleister Black, Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder vs Scott Dawson, Dash Wilder, Erik and Ibar


Hason and Rowe are now called The Viking Experience. Thank God they changed the team name. Hanson and Rowe have new names, Erik and Ibar.

Dawson and Hawkins started it. Scott into a Universal. Deep Arm Drags on both sides. Tag to Zack. Double Suplex. 2 count. Ricochet tagged in and worked the arm. Quick tag to Black. Dawson’s arm was almost useless at this point. Dash got the tag but got laid out. Knife Edge by Dash. Tag to Ibar (Hanson) and then to Erik (Rowe). Dawson came back in after some quick brutality. Dash got run into enemy territory. Black and Ricochet with some double teaming, including a Kitchen Sink. Black tried to fight but quick tags kept him off his game. I broke down into complete chaos. The heels ended up going to the floor. We headed to break.

Just found out Monday Night Raw will be in town just a few days before my birthday, in July. Ray and Sunny….we are SO there.

Hawkins was taken to the corner. Ibar almost got the pin after a Knee Strike by Erik. Erik Scoop Slammed Igor onto Curt. 2 count. Curt’s arm was being destroyed. Erik with a vicious Clothesline. Tag back to Ibar. (Miss heard that earlier) Tag to Dash. Double Team by The Revival.

Zack finally got the tag. Double Knees and Dropkick to the memnbers of The Revival. Flying Forearm by Zack. Everyone ended up hiting the floor. Rough Ryder, off the top rope. It broke down, once again. Ricochet with a wicked Moonsault off the apron. The Vikings pitched Hawkins over the ropes. Fallout!
