Nobody wants to see Cena/Undertaker, the match that got the only big reaction on an otherwise dead show when it was teased a few weeks ago.

John Cena challenged the Undertaker, Roman beefed with Vince and got suspended, Braun killed all the tag teams, Nia wants to murder Alexa and threw the least intimidating tantrum in wrestling history. I certainly didn't think it was a great raw, but storylines are advancing so that's something.

Watching the Hulu cut of raw does wonders for my perception of its quality.

Honestly it was a decently serviceable show that was bookended by two horrible segments. I can see how a less critical eye could like the show.

Is Brock scheduled for next weeks show? I'm thinking Roman might stick it to the man and attack him despite his suspension, I guess it would make more sense on the go home show tho.

Vince last night guaranteed Brock would be there, but that could end up being part of the angle and he still doesn't show.

Presenting Brock Lesnar as a badass loner who shows up to work when he feels like it and Roman as the loyal employee who goes crying to management about it will surely get the Wrestlemania crowd firmly on the Big Dogs side.

*Brock wins the Moolah Battle Royal*

Roman: But this was a contest for women!

Heyman: Yeah, and my client beat their brains out.

Roman: Oh, I, I can't stand it any longer. This whole promotion is insane. Insane, I tell you! Daahh! Aaah! I can be lazy too! Look at me! Hi, I'm a worthless employee, just like Brock Lesnar! Give me a main event push! Ooh, I turn gross and purple at the drop of a hat, but nobody minds! I'm doing the same two moves for ten minutes straight. Give me a raise! Now I'm returning to work which means shuffling around like an idiot. But it doesn't matter, because I'm Brock Lesnar! I don't need to cut my own promos, 'cause someone else will do it for me. DANT! DANT-DA-DANT-DANT!

Brock: Hey, you okay, Leakee?

Roman: I'm better than okay. I'm Brock Lesnar.

Brock: Heh. You wish.

Roman: Oh, hi, Mr. McMahon! I'm the worst non-Khali worker in the world. Time to go home to my cabin and eat a deer. What's this? "Extremely High Voltage." Well, I don't need to sell because, because I'm Brock Lesn--

I popped too, until I remembered that it's not 5 years ago, the streak's dead, Cena's in his 40's, and Undertaker looks like poo poo, already had a pretty good symbolic retirement, and would probably have a heart attack and break his spine just by doing his sit up pose.

He really should have come out the night after he lost to Reigns as Mark Calloway and have a big Flair-esque send off. Now it's just sad.

I call the darkness unto me from deepest depths of Earth and sea. From ancient evils unawoken, break the one that can't be broken. To blackest night, I pledge my soul and crush my heart to burning coal. To summon forth a deathly power, to see my hated foe devoured.


My favorite segment last night was when a woman who used to be called a pig by the other wrestlers and a woman with a history of eating disorders made fun of another woman because she was fat.

I'm sure they loved doing it.

So apparently the writers realized that having Braun no-show every single RAW from now until Wrestlemania still isn't enough of a heat sink to make people cheer Roman, and now they've brought Vince on too in full Evil Boss mode because oh God, do something, anything to draw the boos away from precious baby Reigns.

Do they not realize how patently obvious this is? I can smell the desperation flop-sweat coming right through my TV.
