Monday, July 2, 2012 @ 9 p.m. ET/8 CT on USA Network
TONIGHT: BIG TAG MATCH ANNOUNCED
Theodore Long is wasting no time in trying to impress as Interim Raw General Manager. In what's sure to be a thrilling tag team match between Money in the Bank opponents, Long has announced WWE Champion CM Punk and John Cena will face Chris Jericho and Daniel Bryan on tonight's Raw SuperShow at 9/8 CT on USA.
TONIGHT: LESNAR'S CAMP RESPONDS
Will Triple H get his match with Brock Lesnar when his camp responds to The Game's SummerSlam challenge? How does AJ's presence as guest ref affect the WWE Title Match at Money in the Bank, if at all, and will Daniel Bryan finally try to win her back? Here are five things to watch for on tonight's Raw SuperShow.
Please remember that not everyone reads spoilers for taped programs and direct or side comments about WWE shows that have yet to air are not acceptable in this thread. Additionally, spoilers for shows that air after the show that is the subject of this thread do not belong here.
Got a kick out of CM Punk calling Jericho "Bon Jovi" (it's the hair, y'all). That was funny. Cena tossed in an obscure reference in his promo, such that I can't remember now what it was. I'm getting old. My memory's fading on these things.
So the tag match main ends in a no contest, just so they can continue the AJ Lee angle. Please, give me a break. I figured out that she is showing she will take no sides at the PPV, which would be the right thing to do. Funny how Cole and Lawler never noticed she was copying Punk with the hands all taped up for her match, and the red x imprinted on one hand.
Heath Slater finally wins one, then feels the BANG! Even when he wins, he loses.
What is wrong with the PTP's on Raw? They won't finish matches, and yet they take shortcuts on the other shows. O'Neil & Young didn't need Abraham Washington (AW? Fuhgeddaboutit, he is just a punk with a headset mic as far as I'm concerned.) before this, so why are they stuck with him?
When he was a bad talk show parody on ECW, Washington routinely stunk up the joint, and not even Tony Atlas' campy laughing could help. Now, they're trying to pass him off as a manager/agent for the social media generation. I like him even less. OBTW, they could stand to have the PTP's lose one now and again, as they had on Smackdown when they first came over from NXT.
I think the next step in Teddy's revenge on Eve is putting her back in the ring---against AJ.
What is wrong with Raw right now? Not enough girl power. Aside from AJ, Eve, & Vickie, where were the divas this week?
Christian trying to do the Funkasaurus dance reminds me of the open to one of mid-80's Scooby-Doo shows.
8-man match was cool, but then Otunga gets abandoned like an orphan. I smell a face turn.
