I so had hope for Raw last night. Seeing Shaq bigger than life in a totally different element.
To see his comical side come out. Ripping up Kobe Bryant signs on his way to the ring HAHAHAHAAHAHAH.
The smile that sucks you in making you think he is such a big gentle guy. His in ring presence was felt immediately.
I haven't watched Raw in four, maybe five years. I watched last night cause something felt different.
Somewhat familiar in that Shaq stood crotch to eye with Y2J and I cracked up laughing, all I needed to hear at that point was "who in da blue blazes are you? IT DOESN'T MATTER who you are JABRONI". Yeah man I had a flashback.
Shaq leans in and kisses Y2J on the forehead and calls him Christina. I had to again sit back and say to myself is this the DA ROCK calling Billy Gunn an @$$hole?!!! Are they just trying to tap into that aura the ERA that I called the greatest of all time?
Big Show and Shaq in the middle of the ring is priceless incredible. The immediate intensity. Come on you too like me wanted to see that match and how it could be pulled off.
Shaq bringing up Kobe and hurting Shaq and Stern suing the The Big Show if he takes Shaq out and his new little buddy LeBron. LOL LOL LOL funny stuff not bad;two big guys already fighting to be the baddest bull on the hill.
I am sitting in my chair thinking Vince this is a slam dunk; you are onto something here.
Then the first missed free throw. THE LADIES MATCH...talking about taking the air out of my sails. Then very little Shaq on the screen, ugh, just killing that vibe I had.
The second missed free throw. Hornswallow, Hornswagger, Hornpatuti, whatever that little imp's name is. That was an AIRBALL; you forced him on me with him and Shaq in the locker room.
He is suppose to dunk the ball and that whole awkward moment was corny. The fist bump was just as forced and uneasy. What happened the writers had a block at that point. Why not more confrontation with Y2J?
Yeah for my first night back watching Raw those two big free throw misses stand out in my mind this morning. Will I watch next Monday night? That is up in the air.
If nothing else is on and I have nothing left over on my DVR, there is a strong possibility that I will tune in.
I think Shaq once he is done with the NBA would be a welcomed new Manager on the Raw Monday night line up working for the McMahons. You have spark here and where there is a spark there is fire.
WWE writers get their heads out of their behinds maybe they could catch on fire like NBA JAM and hit consistently from the free throw line with some great storylines.
