MONDAY NIGHT RAW 09/06/10
A BELATED (AND TRUNCATED) REVIEW

There wasn't too much to say about RAW last night, so I decided to keep it short (although I've been known to branch off into a foaming incoherent rant before).
The biggest thing that sticks out in my mind about last night's show is the promo battle between The Miz and Daniel Bryan. Normally this is where I'd go on to describe how awesome Miz was on the mic (as usual), but that isn't the case. And it makes me feel weird. Because somehow, Bryan Danielson came out on top in that back-and-forth.
I really liked Miz's career retrospective and the entire premise behind the promo (get heat so Danielson can come in and promise to shut Miz up at Night of Champions), but Miz had some really uncharacteristic flubs and stutters and jumbled lines that brought things down. It was totally unlike him and that's what made it so weird. Had this been a David Otunga or Melina promo, it would've been STELLAR, because they suck. But because Miz has been so consistently flawless on the mic, a stumble or two brings things to a halt.
It's okay. Everybody gets one.
Other than that, not too much to write about. John Cena almost broke Justin Gabriel's neck out of his neck after slipping on the second rope as he delivered a SUPER Attitude Adjustment. That would've put a damper his "smirk-while-I-chain-wrestle-you-and-teach-you-a-thing-or-two, kid" schtick at the start of the match. Bryan's domination of Miz and Alex Riley was cool, Randy Orton's five (five? twelve? I don't know) RKO's to close the show was just sheer chaos, and Edge talking to the all-knowing omnipresent General Manager was hilarious. And bonus points to Michael Cole for calling out Great Khali's DOIIII move of eliminating himself from the Over the Top Rope Challenge, and Mike Chioda not making the call. Pretty strange WCW 2000 stuff right there.

"FIRED" AFTER EROTIC PHOTOS DISCOVERED
Just thought I'd throw my two cents in, even though they're pretty much identical to everyone else's: Why the FUCK would you hire and promote this person and then be like, "durr, did anyone check if this mythical creature did any freak porn?"
ROH GLORY BY HONOR IX
I'll be doing some kind of preview/write-up/fanboy gushing over this iPPV sometime in the next day or two, especially since the card seems to be fully fleshed out. And someone on the ROH board fantasy-booked the best ending to the Tyler/Roddy title match that could possibly happen (and not just be an EWR nerd-out of some kind), and that got me excited.
But seriously. If you're reading this right now and aren't planning to order the show, I officially disown you.
And lastly, I've just had a few new ideas for more recurring posts that are getting me fired up like Brent Albright off a hot tag. I don't know if you like the idea of recurring features, or don't really care, but if you're feeling particularly social, hit up the comments and let me know what you do or don't like.
But for now, I'm going to watch Teen Mom and curse the girl who let her baby fall off the bed. G'night.
