Thoughts on the Raw Show and the shake up in TNA Creative.

Lets start things off with the god awful episode of Raw last night. From the use of a Hall of Famer like Sgt Slaughter to do nothing more then alienate the Canadian crowd last night was a pointless time filling move that made Slaughter and the company look stupid. Booking Jericho and Big Show in two Singles matches instead of having them come out and squash a tag team does nothing to further the Cryme Tyme Match in two weeks . And the yet again rehashing of putting the two main event foes in a tag match against the champions.

The best match of the evening was the four way woman’s match to pick the number one contender for Mickie James title . Kelly Kelly , Gail Kim , Alicia Fox , and Beth Phoenix all squared off in the ring in a lively match with Gail Kim coming out on top. Now with the rumored Heel turn coming for Gail Kim, which is another thing they are doing a crappy job at selling, I have to ask one thing , as good as this Fox girl has been in the ring I think that she rates a big push and she’s already positioned as a Heel anyway .

Next in this mass grave , Jack Swagger took on Evan Bourne in the rubber match of their little mini feud. This one makes little sense because they really shouldn’t have moved Bourne off of ECW in the first place. Bourne is being wasted as a high end jobber to help others get over when he could be a top guy on ECW and they could move Christian to some where he could be more useful. Bourne’s main drawback is his lack of size but for a guy who is every bit as talented as Tyson Kid or Rey Mysterio , the creative team and Vince are just going to have to get past that .

The impending DX reunion was cemented when HHH found HBK in a Cafeteria flipping burgers . Various DX high jinks ensued culminating in a super Kick to a mouthy little girl while the grill went up in flames. These segments were good but the end game is unclear about bringing back . Is this going to last for a while, is this how HBK is going to retire , or is HHH in for a Heel turn. Any way its good to have the boys back together .

Hornswoggle  and Marc Henry took on Legacy for some reason. Hardly a tune up for DX but it gets the little guy some sympathy when he gets his ass kicked. I guess they couldn’t think up something stupid for Chavo to do.

I could go on and on but after two straight Raw shows that were pretty good they come up with this turd . And Vince wonders why he can’t develop new stars. Watch your own show Vince , it isn’t hard to figure out.

In the land of the six sided ring, the back stage people are starting to drop like fly’s . Dutch Mantel and Savio Vega have already been given their walking papers , and its being reported now that Scott D’amore has been rehired and there are still rumors that B.G. James and Jim Cornette are on their way out as well. With all Of Jarrett’s people being shown, it’s a matter of time before Jarrett is gone as well. How it will happen is what is going to be interesting. She cant fire A guy that owns part of the company so it will cost her to buy him out. Now what if Old Double J gets it in his head to shop his interest around. What’s to stop him from calling up titan towers and saying to Vince “ You wanna Buy a small interest in a wrestling company” . or what’s to stop Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan to buy their way to a seat at the TNA table. This mess is far from over and its going to be a real train wreck to watch.
