WWE: 5 Reasons I Love Watching Current Episodes of Monday Night Raw
The title says it all.
Monday Night Raw, WWE's flagship show, is definitely the best wrestling show right now, and it's no surprise why.
With CM Punk and his pipe bomb, Triple H as the new COO and many other interesting things happening on Raw, it's a must-see show.
In this slideshow, I'm going to name and explain the five main reasons why I love watching Monday Night Raw.
Some of you could agree, while others will disagree, and that's cool, because it's my opinion, and you have yours. So feel free to express your opinion in the comment box below.
Without any further ado, let's get started, shall we?
No. 5: The Amazing High-Flyers
Let's be honest, Raw completely owns SmackDown when it comes to high-flying talent. Raw has Rey Mysterio, John Morrison, Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston, while SmackDown has Sin Cara, Justin Gabriel and a somewhat Daniel Bryan.
In my opinion, all of Raw's high-flyers make the matches innovative and way more fun to watch than any other superstar with a different wrestling style ever could.
Rey's definitely stepped up his game since being drafted to Raw and is an all time great; Kofi Kingston's moves are fun and innovative; Evan Bourne's one hell of a high-flyer; and John Morrison's an absolute delight to watch.
No. 4: Triple H as the Chief Operating Officer
WWE fans have been treated since Triple H has taken over.
On his first night as COO, he brought back the greatest in-ring announcer in the WWE, Jim Ross, and an incredible in-ring talent, John Morrison.
By the way, I know that it's Kayfabe and that Vince Mcmahon is still running things, but they still have to create that Kayfabe illusion that Triple H is the new COO, and it's for the better.
Not only that, but I, along with most WWE fans, are waiting for the moment when Triple H turns heel and proves to be way more selfish, evil and hated then Vince Mcmahon ever was.
No. 3: R-Truth and Little Jimmy
OK, this one I put on just for the hell of it, but I have to admit, it's fun to watch R-Truth in his crazed psychopath gimmick.
Truth cracks up the audience wherever he goes, and his Little Jimmy shtick never gets old.
Plus, Truth's doing exactly what Raw's supposed to do: provide entertainment for the live audience and the fans watching at home.
No. 2: The Possibility of Seeing a Change in John Cena's Character
Cena goes off on Del Rio
After watching the promo cut by Cena against Alberto Del Rio (If you haven't seen it, watch the video attached to the slideshow from the 10 minute mark), I'm guessing that slowly by slowly, we could possibly see a change in John Cena's character, and it's no mystery why.
With CM Punk supposedly taking WWE into a new era, WWE doesn't want him to overshadow John Cena, who is the current face of the WWE.
Nor do they want him to be completely booed out of the building when he faces The Rock in the main event of Wrestlemania 28, which could be why WWE might be considering the fact of making John Cena a bit more 14-A rather than PG.
Once again, I'm not sure if we'll see a change in his character, but after watching Raw last week, this is definitely one of the reasons I'm anxious to watch this week's show.
No. 1: CM Punk's Cult of Personality
This is easily the best reason I watch Monday Night Raw.
CM Punk's a genius on the mic, and his promos alone are worth buying a ticket to any Monday Night Raw show.
Sometimes they're funny, sometimes they're arrogant, but let's not forget the main reason we all love watching them: they're rebellious.
Punk always has something to say, and he sure as hell isn't afraid to say it, which is exactly what keeps me glued to the television whenever he's on.
Oh yeah, and not to forget, his feud with Kevin Nash seems to be the most interesting angle on WWE TV right now, and nobody seems to knows where they're going with it.
