We get a Paul Bearer tribute video which was cool.
The Undertaker comes out to the ring with a Urn in the middle of it & he does his famous pose with a picture of His late manager Paul Bearer on the screen. Cm Punk comes out to rudely interrupt him. Punk says he wanted to apologize for the undertakers lost at Wrestlemania 29. Punk says taker will be 20-1 at mania. He says the night after raw will air video of punk ending the streak. They stare at each other to end the segment.
AR’s Truth: A good way to show respect for Bearer & got undertaker on raw without giving away too much. Punk’s promo was straight forward & simple.
Big Show Vs Seth Rollins
They go at it with Big show getting the majority of the offense then Ambrose & reigns jump him. They all attack him but he fights them off until reigns spears him & lay him out with a triple powerbomb.
Winner By DQ: Big Show
AR’s Truth: A short match until the DQ then the shield got some power back with laying out a former world champion. Big S looked scared & was spiting the entire time. 2 short to even grade.
Cm Punk does a backstage segment with Vickie Guerrero about the undertaker at WrestleMania which makes a match with kane in A No DQ Match for later in the show.
Dolp Ziggler Def Daniel Bryan
After the match Big E Lays out Bryan.
AR’s Truth: A very good back & forth action match that made Ziggler finally get a win. The interference made Bryan still look good so it didn’t hurt him in anyway. I would rather see a 20 minute match with these two rather than a 10 minute match with Bryan Vs Kane. Good 3.5-5*
We get a video package hyping up Brock Lesnar announcer about a WrestleMania match with HHH.
Tensi calls out Fandango but when Fandango comes out he says when they get his name right he will. He starts talking to one of Brodus clay Dancers but Tensi interrupts him. Fandango says tensi ruined a match with him.
We get a GI Joe Trailer.
Team Road Scholars do a funny remake of the intro of New Age Outlaws.
New Age Outlaws Def Team Road Scholars Via DQ
AR’s Truth: Not getting in the meat & potatoes of the match because of Lesnar laid them out. I wish they had more time just because im a mark for the new age outlaws. The promo by Heyman was good as always & the unknown of what kind of match makes it interesting. They could have Outlaws Vs scholars at a later time raw most likely but would be cool if it was a mania match which I strongly don’t believe it will happen.
Mark Henry Def Kofi Kingston
Cody Rhodes talks to Kaitlin then Damien Sandow says they have a Double Date & then the Bella Twins walk into the arms. Vickie makes a match with Team Roads Scholars Vs Randy Orton & Sheamus.
AR’s Truth: A decent match with kofi getting some offense & I was afraid it was just a job match for Kingston but with the offense he got I don’t think it hurts him too much. He does need some wins though. Decent 2-5* Match
Ryback Def Heath Slater
After the match the rest of 3mb jumps him but Drew McIntyre eats a shell shock. Mark henry comes in the ring which hits a world’s strongest slam on drew then Ryback hits another shell shock & there in a contest. Henry hits another world’s strongest slam then they have a staring contest.
AR’s Truth: A Job match that sets up the i can out one you contest between Ryback & henry. There setting up a match with these two for mania. Job 1-5* Match
Alberto Del Rio Def Antonio Cesaro
AR’S Truth: I feel like we see this match way too much. Can We switch it up A little? Didn’t miss much 1.5-5* match.
Kane holds the URN & Josh Matthews attempts to say something but just can’t & walks away.
We get a pretty cool video package going through John cena’s 2012 year & how we got to the match at wrestlemania between the rock Vs Cena 2.
Randy Orton & Sheamus Def Team Road Scholars
AR’s Truth: A solid win for orton & Sheamus. Other than that a typical WWE Tag Match. 2-5* match
They show a video that was on Raw Active that showed the shield attacking Randy Orton & Sheamus.
Chris Jericho comes out for Highlight Reel with his special guest The Miz. We get a clip of the marine 3 then The Miz comes out. They talk about miz new movie but then Wade Barrett comes out to interrupts them. Wade talks about how many offers he got for movie to star in. They go back & forth then Wade says he is going to drop Jericho. Jericho wants to fight but then Brad Maddox comes out & talks to them like there 3 years old. He makes a match for the next week for the intercontential title & who faces wade has to win this next match.
AR’s Truth: Decent stuff by Wade, Miz & Chris. I didn’t even mind Maddox promo because it was his gimmick. Cole & Lawler talking over him didn’t make it any better but that’s because he has Vince or a producer telling them to say it.
Jericho Vs Miz goes to a No Contest
We get a funny video package of Ricardo & Alberto Del Rio Making fun of Zeb Colter & Jack Swagger.
AR’s Truth: A good back & forth match. It looks like a way for next week’s raws title match. Maybe at Mania hopefully. Good 3-5* Match.
Jack Swagger Def Sin Cara
After the match Swagger doesn’t let go of the ankle lock until ADR makes the save who puts in the arm bar to make a statement.
AR’s Truth: The ongoing feud with these two is getting better & I think it has to do with Zeb doing all the promos for jack. Mangers really get involved which is good.
We get a video package with Haley Berry talking to David Otunga , Kane to promote her new movie.
No DQ Match: Kane Def Cm Punk
The undertaker comes out after the match & both men do the famous pose with Bearers picture on the screen. Punk attacks kane with the urn but when taker comes in the ring he leaves to end the show.
AR’s Truth: A good back & forth action 3-5* match. Usually WWE has a hard time filling 3 hours on a weekly bases but this week we got a commercial on the over run? was that extra match necessary ? Anyways Undertaker costing punk the match made sense to build there feud up. Expect at least one more Kane vs punk match on tv. Punk still needs heat & he could get it more from kane than anyone. Punk nailing kane in the back of kane’s head with the URN was a great way.
Overall this was a decent show that had a smackdown feel with all the matches. I believe there was 11 – 12 matches on the show & the only big segment was Lesnar accepting HHH challenge. Undertaker helped but he didn’t give to much except the feel of the show. Hopefully next week will be better because at that time we have 3 weeks left until mania.
Overall show rating: 6.5-10*
