RAW REVIEW 12/9/19
•Lana and Rusev got divorced. Once again this dragged on and Lana yelled the entire time. This segment made me think the show was gonna be ass, but oh yes it gets better!
•Drew McIntyre defeated Matt Hardy. Loved seeing Matt again and they put on a decent match granted it was a jobber match. Future shock DDT into a Claymore Kick for the pinfall. FREE THE DELETE.
•RAW Tag Team Championship Match: The Viking Raiders (C) retained vs The Street Prophets. Fast paced back and forth match and both men showed respect to each other after the match.
• After the match Rollins came out and was trying to explain himself meanwhile Owens was running all over the arena with a led pipe searching for the AOP. -
•Black defeated Tozawa. Good match and what a knee and black mass by Black. I’m excited for him vs Murphy on Sunday it could steal the show.
•Carrillo defeated Andrade. This was shocking. Carrillo stole the pinfall and Zelina and Andrade were arguing a ton. I’m curious if they are splitting up which would be sad. Who would she manage next?
•Murphy defeated Ryder. Jobber match. Excited for Sunday.
•Rollins turned heel! AOP jumped Owens and by gawd out of the van was Rollins and a brutal black our curb stomp on the concrete! This was my personal favorite moment of the night I was fan boying. -
•The weekend update by the Street Prophets was actually funny to me for some reason. I want this to continue. -
•United States Championship Match: Rey Mysterio (C) retained vs AJ Styles. These two put on a great main event granted the botch at the end which I’ve never seen them botch that bad. Right when it looked like Styles was going to win after a brutal powerbomb and Styles Clash Orton came into the ring and winked at Styles which was funny and Rey cradled Styles for the pinfall. Great ending and I’m curious as to who will Mysterio face next and are we going to get Orton vs Styles at TLC? -
••RATING 7/10. I’m a touch generous here, but man after the Lana Rusev ish it was a lot of storytelling and build. Owens and Rollins is great, we got heel Rollins, and 2 title matches that ended with no Disqualifications!
