Monday Night Raw

The Monday Night Raw episode that aired on Monday the 6th was a typical Monday Night Raw of keeping us wondering, what is going on.

We saw the build up of The Miz vs. Daniel Bryan for the US Title at Night of Champions, and the unveiling of a very awkward WWE magazine cover. Was it me or did Miz's head look like it didn't match up with his body? And why would they reveal the cover of the magazine and not the cover of the WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011. Being on the cover of the game amongst Cena and Taker is a huge accomplisment, much bigger than being on the cover of the magazine.

We got to see the continual denial that the tag team titles exist as we have no build up to a show where every champion is defended, and yet we have no idea who the tag team champs will defend their new titles against.

We see Chris Jericho, the best there is at what he does, lose a match to John Morrison and drop out of the six pack challenge. Is this to get him some time off for a bit? Maybe he'll just disapear or end up at Smackdown. Any way it goes down I think its fair to say that this will not be the end of the Ayatollah or Rock and Rolla.

We get Edge and Zac Ryder having a moment, for some quick comedy, followed by Edge vs. Kahli for more comedy. Did anyone else agree with Michael Cole and wonder how the Great Kahli didn't eliminate himself? If I'm in the Royal Rumble, I climb over the top rope and hop to the floor I'm out, thats how it works, unless your Kahli apparently.

One more scene with Jericho, still in his ring gear and distraught, a quick typical Josh Matthews interview, followed my some more comedy with John Morrison consoling Jericho and sits with him and stares off into the distance.

Now for the final comedy act, no, not the match between Barret and Orton, which was quite good, as the superstars on the outside kept saying Wade was holding his own against Randy and putting on a truly main event styled match. The real show, or at least the humor portion took place at ringside with Cena, King, Cole, Sheamus and Edge. Lets just go over some of the zingers that were shot off between this comedy troupe that entertained us all even when not in the ring.
