The go-home edition for Money In The Bank was nothing special. Instead of going into extreme detail about last night’s happenings, I will introduce “Quick Thoughts,” where I will just bullet point my thoughts and analysis. Without further ado, here are my “Quick Thoughts” on Monday Night Raw.
John Cena really needs to cut out the cute promos. I will be honest. The “rip off his face and replace it with his butt” and the “clan known as NNNNNN” lines made me laugh, but after all of the crap that Cena has gone through, why be funny?
Michael Cole really looks like a middle school principal when he steps up to the GM podium. I am waiting for him to give a Superstar a demerit.
Alicia Fox wonders why he she gets no respect. It’s because she is awful in the ring. Now you can pay $40 to see her again this Sunday when she defends her title against Eve!
The Usos/Hart Dynasty match was extremely predictable. This feud, if you can call it that, has lost all momentum.
Maryse is gorgeous. John Morrison tries to be Cena with his hokey promos, but they never sound good. His deadpan heel delivery was much better.
I am not going to even go into the “Santino’s Bunch” stuff.
Randy Orton v. Edge is always a solid match (minus Over The Limit). It is what happened afterwards that is worth talking about. Chris Jericho gives Edge the Codebreaker. then eats an RKO. Evan Bourne blindsides Orton and goes for the Shooting Star Press, but Orton counters it into a Super RKO. There aren’t many things these days that make me shout “OH MY GOD” at the top of my lungs and keep my mouth open for a good minute. That’s what I did here.
I like the Miz’s new serious side. His cocky bit is great, so this only makes him greater. Or more awesome.
Miz’s attack on Mark Henry would have been better if A) the laptop hadn’t mysteriously disappeared and B) the plastic garbage can hadn’t mysteriously appeared.
Florence Henderson. The Regal Bunch? Moving on.
News flash, Edge: Only Randy Orton hears voices in his head. You’re not Randy Orton. I was waiting for Edge to say “they counsel me, they understand, they talk to me.” Good thing he didn’t.
Nexus has been beating up people all night. Tarver’s face after they took out Yoshi Tatsu was f*cking freaky.
It takes only a flinch for Sheamus to run like a little baby? Talk about change of heart (or diapers for that matter).
It makes sense for Nexus to go over. It was 6-on-1 after all.
Yes, Michael Cole, we have seen handicap matches like this before. Even bigger ones! Remember that one time when Orton and Cena went up against the entire Raw roster? And didn’t Mr. Kennedy face the ECW roster on his own?
Sheamus didn’t hit one person with his chair. I’m just glad he didn’t hit Cena. I liked how the show went off the air.
This has been “Quick Thoughts.” Look for these in the future.
