Raw and MORE

  • Raw last night from England was entertaining; Hitman Randy Hatton (did I get the name right?) is a British boxer and former World Welterweight champion who did a surprisingly good job hosting; the entertainment bits WERE entertaining and the show went off smoothly. They worked in some more selling for the Survivor Series although I have to admit I found myself wondering "where the hell did that match come from?" a few times, which is not good ... these things need to be built to. And granted some of the feuds have been; but not the matches themselves, and who's teaming with whom. But the VIP lounge, DX and John Cena again, Evan Bourne's surprising victory, and more was all a lot of fun.
  • Happy birthday to Chris Jericho and Ted Dibiase Jr. today! :)
  • In a surprise bit of news, apparently the Ultimate Warrior, the former Jim Hellwig, who has famously been on the outs with Vince McMahon and the WWE for some time - particularly since the release of the "Self-Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior" DVD which was a predictable hatchet job due to Warrior's lack of cooperation, has been in some talks with Vince McMahon to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at next year's ceremony in Phoenix, which incidentally is Warrior's hometown (as opposed to Parts Unknown). I suppose, if true, this eliminates one name from the list of obvious, but egregiously left out, potential Hall of Famers, such as Bruno Sammartino and Randy Savage.
More on all of this on Thursday night's podcast of In This Very Ring. Hope you'll all be listening in. Peace!
