Segment 1) Undertaker/HBK Promo

Despite this promo being completely pointless as everybody already wants to see their match an Wrestlemania, this was a fantastic opening segment- not because it made sense but because these 2 athletes were phenomenal once again. Great display from both men. Creative left them down though, we need something fresh instead of Promo's.


Segment 2) Divas match

Average match, at best. Once again, could have been so much more.


Segment 3) R Truth & JoMo vs Showmiz

An angle instead of a match but what a fantastic angle it was. It showed how strong Truth and JoMo are at working together and really built them as legitimate title contenders while not making the champs look weak as it was a sneak attack. Also,we finally had a no contest outcome which wasnt just some lame and lazy way to end a match.


Segment 4) Orton vs DiBiase & Rhodes

A solid match to be honest. However, I would question the reasoning behind a Randy Orton face turn/ tweener role after months of building up to a Rhodes and DiBiase face turns.


Segment 5) HHH/ Sheamus Promo

Not a bad promo by HHH and a decent fight between both men. Somehow, this segment and really the rest of the show just seemed like a filler.


Segment 6) Bourne v Regal

Very short match. Made sense to put Bourne into MITB. However, pointless match. Should've just put him in the match.


Segment 7) Superman vs Team Vince

Since when can you tag in and out of a gauntlet match at your pleasure. This match was a load of crap from begining to end. Vince, if this was a prelude to your match with Bret Hart at WM, then you better pray to God that Bret can carry you threw your match. A complete crock for a main event.


Final Thoughts:

Tonights Raw was a really poor one if you take out the Taker/HBK Promo& the Legacy match. WWE seems to be putting on poor shows when they go head-to-head with Impact. Maybe its to prove a point or so they can brag that their worst still be the best you can come up with.

Final Rating: 2/5

Looking forward to next week with the return of Stone Cold. Expect the stipulation of the Vince-Bret match to be announced by Austin next week.
