    *Results* Raw: Dec -08-08

    Results:
    Slam, bam, thank you ma'am!


    PHILADELPHIA – When Raw rolled into the City of Brotherly Love for a special three-hour episode, it was one of the biggest shows of the year, featuring not one, but three massive main events, as well as the 2008 Slammy Awards. However, in spite of all that, the most pressing issue on the Superstars’ minds was Armageddon. Though much of the night was colored by anticipation of this Sunday’s event, the situation boiled over in the last minutes of Raw, with every Superstar involved in Armageddon’s two World Title Matches rushing into the ring, creating a scene of complete and utter bedlam.

    Chris Jericho won the Slammy Award for Superstar of the Year; World Heavyweight Champion John Cena vs. WWE Champion Edge ended in a no contest
    The last Slammy awarded on Raw was perhaps the most prestigious: Superstar of the Year. Demonstrating the weight of this honor, Stephanie McMahon herself emerged to declare the winner. In what came as a great disappointment to the WWE Universe, the name she read was that of the reviled Chris Jericho. Affecting his normal smarmy, elitist attitude, Jericho took the podium and spoke at length of why he deserved the award. Lucky for our fans, however, his diatribe was interrupted by World Heavyweight Champion John Cena. Though The Champ wanted to chase after his slippery Armageddon opponent, he was held back by a referee in order to compete in his Champion vs. Champion Match against WWE Champion Edge.

    Cena and Edge are no stranger to one another in the ring, with an extended rivalry in their past, but their main event on Raw was as intense as any of their past matches. Though both champions fought hard, the match ended as a no contest, after a run-in from the cowardly Chris Jericho, who took advantage of the situation to attack Cena, mere days before their World Heavyweight Title Match. With Cena distracted, Triple H stormed the ring to attack Edge, and with the later involvement of Jeff Hardy, all three contenders in the WWE Championship Match at Armageddon battled it out in the ring, as Cena and Jericho’s brawl spilled out into the crowd.

    Dolph Ziggler def. R-Truth
    As seen on WWE.com earlier today, R-Truth won a Slammy Award for Best Musical Performance. The rapping ring warrior’s fortunes took a downturn on Raw, however, as he faced off against Dolph Ziggler, who beat the rapping Superstar by disqualification. Following the contest, the victor greeted the audience, saying “Allow me to introduce myself. I’m the winner, Dolph Ziggler.”

    The Great Khali won the Slammy Award for “DAMN!” Moment of the Year
    Who better to give out the award for “DAMN!” Moment of the Year than the man who can bark that word like none other, Ron Simmons? Along with Mickie James, Simmons presented the award to The Great Khali for his Khali Kiss Kam segments on SmackDown. The Punjabi Giant spoke of the fleeting nature of material possessions, which warmed Mickie’s heart to the humongous Superstar. As they looked in one another’s eyes, the arena was filled with Superstars such as Jillian Hall, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Sgt. Slaughter, Kung Fu Naki and even WWE personality Howard Finkel, creating another “DAMN!” Moment right there on Raw. As The Great Khali and Mickie kissed, Ron Simmons had little choice but to brandish his signature catchphrase.

    Randy Orton, Manu & Cody Rhodes def. Triple H & Batista in a Handicap Match
    Making good on his challenge from earlier in the night, Orton and the team he calls “The Legacy,” including Manu & Cody Rhodes faced off against Triple H & Batista. Though the contest was a 3-on-2 Handicap Match, the outcome was nowhere near certain, as Triple H & Batista are not only among the current roster’s most dominant athletes, but are also two of the most powerful Superstars in WWE history. In spite of their wealth of strength and ability, however, they were unable to compete against the odds stacked against them, with Randy Orton hitting Batista with a vicious RKO to pick up the win in his team’s first match together.

    Shawn Michaels won the Slammy Award for Match of the Year, but the award was taken by JBL
    The highly-coveted Slammy for Match of the Year was presented by SmackDown’s Eve and the star of the upcoming film Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia, Mr. Kennedy. Paying homage to the “Nature Boy” himself, this award went to Ric Flair’s Career Threatening Match against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XXIV. HBK came to the podium to give an emotional acceptance speech, but was interrupted by JBL, who had one week prior made an employment offer to Michaels. The self-proclaimed “wrestling god” took the award from Shawn, and declared himself the winner for his Parking Lot Brawl Match against John Cena at The Great American Bash, before leaving the stage and a dejected Michaels standing empty-handed.

    World Tag Team Champion CM Punk won the Slammy Award for OMG Moment of the Year; Rey Mysterio def. World Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston to advance to the finals of the Intercontinental Title Tournament; Rey Mysterio to face CM Punk at Armageddon
    To give out the Slammy Award for OMG Moment of the Year, Lilian Garcia announced ECW’s Alicia Fox and the WWE personality who can be heard saying “Oh my god!” weekly on WWE.com, Joey Styles. The two revealed the winner to be World Tag Team Champion CM Punk, for cashing in Money in the Bank to beat Edge and win his first World Heavyweight Championship. The Straightedge Superstar was gracious in his acceptance, stating his intention to go the distance and win the Intercontinental Title from William Regal after winning the tournament.

    After Punk’s acceptance, his partner, World Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston, made his way to the ring to participate in that same Intercontinental Title Tournament. The Jamaican Superstar didn’t have the same success as his partner, however, as Rey Mysterio defeated him in the two’s first-ever match-up. The Master of the 619 will now go on to Armageddon this Sunday to compete against CM Punk for the opportunity to face Intercontinental Champion William Regal.

    Edge & Vickie Guerrero won the Slammy Award for Couple of the Year; Finlay & Hornswoggle def. Santino Marella & Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix; Beth Phoenix won the Slammy Award for Diva of the Year
    To announce the winner of Couple of the Year, an unusual pairing made their way to the podium: The radiant Kelly Kelly and the Big Red Monster Kane. Giving the SmackDown General Manager a chance to subject Raw to her screeching, Vickie Guerrero was announced the winner along with her husband, WWE Champion Edge. One pair, however, was particularly put out that they had been looked over for the award, and Glamarella wasn’t going to take it sitting down. Santino Marella & Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix went on to challenge any “couple” in WWE to face them.

    The two got more than they bargained for however, when Finlay & Hornswoggle emerged to accept the challenge. The Belfast Brawler & his diminutive son ran roughshod over Glamarella, further contributing to their discontent at the Slammy loss. But before the couple could leave the ring, ECW General Manager Teddy Long and Melina came out to the podium to announce the winner of Diva of the Year. Though it displeased her to announce it, Melina read Beth Phoenix’s name. As The Glamazon attempted to accept her award, she broke out into a fight with her rival Diva that resulted in Santino getting hit in the groin.

    Jeff Hardy won the Slammy Award for Extreme Moment of the Year; Chris Jericho def. Jeff Hardy
    ECW Champion Matt Hardy made a special appearance on Raw to hand out the Slammy for Extreme Moment of the Year with the lovely Tiffany at his side. In what was a special moment for the two Hardys, Matt opened the envelope to discover that his brother Jeff had won for performing a Swanton Bomb on Randy Orton off the Raw set. Though Jeff was excited, and spoke of his plans to leave Armageddon having defeated WWE Champion Edge and Triple H to become the new champion, his exuberance quickly turned to dejection when he had to face the nefarious Chris Jericho. The first-ever Undisputed Champion proved why he continues to be a devastating force on Raw by pinning the Enigmatic Superstar for the win.

    MVC (Most Valuable Charlie) def. MVP
    SmackDown’s MVP appeared on Raw hoping to break his long-running losing streak. After taunting Philadelphia Philly Jimmy Rollins at ringside, the Ballin’ Superstar’s opponent was revealed to be someone who looked very familiar. Charlie Haas, who had earlier in the day won the Slammy for Best Impersonation for his role as The GlamaHaas (as seen on WWE.com), came to the ring outfitted as MVP, bodysuit included. Unfortunately for Montel Vontavious Porter, his arrogant posturing got the best of him, leading to a win for the Most Valuable Charlie.

    Evan Bourne won the Slammy Award for Best Finishing Maneuver; Randy Orton challenged Batista & Triple H to a Handicap Match
    Evan Bourne’s phenomenal Shooting Star Press was selected as the Best Finishing Maneuver of 2008, but it wasn’t the high-flyer who arrived to accept the award from Candice Michelle and Cryme Tyme. Unfortunately, it was the man who had further injured the recuperating “Air” Bourne, Mike Knox. The Desert Destroyer took the coveted award before leaving the arena.

    Following Knox’s deplorable actions, another bitter Superstar emerged: Randy Orton. The Legend Killer was incensed that he was left out of the running for Superstar of the Year, and as a way of redeeming himself, challenged Triple H and Orton’s Armageddon opponent, Batista, to a Handicap Match against the team of himself, Manu & Cody Rhodes, stating that “The Legacy is born.”

    The Miz & John Morrison won the Slammy Award for Tag Team of the Year; World Tag Team Champion CM Punk def. John Morrison to advance to the finals of the Intercontinental Title Tournament
    Maria and Festus took to the stage at the top of the show to hand out the Slammy for Tag Team of the Year. The Miz & John Morrison were revealed to be the winners and the “Dirt Sheet” duo came out to accept, claiming to be not only the best tag team of 2008, but of the 21st century. Following the award, John Morrison entered the ring to compete against CM Punk in an effort to move ahead in the Intercontinental Title Tournament.

    Though Morrison had claimed to be one-half of the finest ring tandem of this century, on Raw he was unable to stand up to the assault of one-half of the World Tag Team Champions. CM Punk defeated the Shaman of Sexy to move one step closer to facing 2008 King of the Ring William Regal for his Intercontinental Title.

    Re: *Results* Raw: Dec -08-08

    Sorry for the double post guys. I figured I'd breifly give my opinion of the show. Its 1:20am and Im tired so ignore any spelling mistakes

    First things first, I found it rather ironic Raw was being held in the city of brotherly love just days after WWE fired Brother Love. The announce team was pretty funny tonight, King had me cracking up with his comments. It didnt matter if he was talking about Grisham and Striker winning announce team of the year award or how he wouldnt trust Cryme Tyme with anything made of gold.

    I'll admit that Im against tournaments unless they provide some sort of storyline in the process. Sadly the storyline is pretty obvious with the tension between Regal & Punk. I think we know the two will meet. However, that didnt stop the speculation that tag team champions CM Punk & Kofi Kingston would meet up in the finals. Unfortunantly that was not meant to be. Punk got the win over John Morrison in a pretty good opening match, and Rey Mysterio won against Kofi Kingston in a match that I was expecting to be longer and better than it was.

    It was advertised throughout the week as Triple H vs Batista, but moments after the show kicked off we learnt that the match would now be Triple & Batista vs Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes and Manu. It was an alright match, and Orton completely pwnt Batista with an RKO out of nowhere.... And Thus Legacy was born. Im still not sold on Manu, but insert Ted Jr. and thats a pretty impressive looking stable.

    One of my favorite moments of the night was MVP talking trash to Jimmy Rollins only to be met by MVC ( Most Valuable Charlie [Haas]). MVP's losing streak continued, but in this match he came very close to winning. I get the feeling this losing streak is nearing its end. I'm rather interested to see where it goes, but right now I'd much rather have MVP as WWE Champion.

    Speaking of the WWE Champion, Edge took on John Cena. In usual WWE fashion, when two big names square off on free cable (not in this country, I pay extra for Raw), the match ended in a no contest after Jericho made his way to the ring and attacked John Cena. Anyone in a match worth a damn this Sunday came out and a bring brawl followed. Pretty much a classic way to hype a ppv. This segement was the perfect example of Same Old Shit WWE, in my opinion.

    I wont got too far into the Slammy Award segments, but over all they were a waste of time but tolerable to watch. Every diva looked stunning in their gowns, even "Franken head" Mickie James. Tonight was proof that Khali is indeed the Punjabi Playboy as he planted one hell of a giant sized kiss on Mickie after scooping her up in his arms. Jillian with the Titanic song, Funaki, the SGT, and Ron, it was kewl. Not overly funny, but kewl! Santino saved the awards show if you ask me, I laughed hard when Horny pinned Santino and then he got the back of Beth's head in his meatballs. However, Im not sure if WWE even realize that they are making Jeff Hardy look like a joke. During his award speech, Hardy talked passionately about wrestling on a trampoline with his brother (Matt) as a child. He spoke about how he didnt care if he had to walk, limp, crawl or leave the arena on a stretched, he was leaving Armageddon as WWE Champion. About 7 minutes later, Jeff Hardy found himself looking up at the lights as Chris Jericho was named the winner of their match. During Jeff's speech I honestly believed that he would win at Armageddon, now I get the feeling he will choke again.

    I didn't catch the end of the show, but it ended just like I'd imagined it would. It wasn't a bad Raw, and I'm happy the Orton's stable has actually begun. I'm very excited to see Punk vs. Rey, and I think if given enough time, it could be one of or even Punk's best match so far in the WWE.

    I was actually there last night...and I have to tell you in all honesty...in all of the times I have been to WWE events....last night was by far the WORST! I was actually EXCITED about the whole Slammy thing...and hell I knew it was gonig to be fixed....but that was just ridiculous. A total comedy fest last night if I may say so myself. And none of the match ups from last night really got me into it. Although I did mark for The RKO to Batista.

    I didn't see it, but hearing that Punk thanked Volk Han and that DOLPH ZIGGLER once again looked awesome made me wish I'd taped. Atleast then I could have fast forwarded through all the shite.

    Re: *Results* Raw: Dec -08-08

    I can honestly say...never have I been to a WWE event and actually walked out completely dissapointed....last night wasn't the case though. I felt like I was at a comedy show...all the matches were pretty short with the exception of 3 on 2 match. Which wasn't that great either. Punk and Morrison had a few nice spots that's about it. The crowd was loud which is a cool enviroment...but nothing at all last night stood out. I rolled my eyes at most of the segments...just the whole show was wayyyyyyyyyy to gimicky. Hell alot of BTB's I read are better then the shows WWE produce nowadays. None the less I will be going to WM25 and GAB in Philly.

    I missed the last 20 minutes of it or so, glad to see Jericho won the SOTY award he deserved it most this year, he had a great year. But as glad as i am Jericho won it, i'm more glad Triple H and Batista didn't.

    He also thanked Colt.

    Ehh, I didn't think it was as bad as everyone thought it was. The Legacy are rather ftw. They needed a win to start off with, and beating Tista/HHH is big.

    Am I once again in the minority that this RAW rocked? >_>
