RAW (May 8, 2006): Ruh Is Bure

So yeah... I'm watching RAW right now and... good god, this show sucks.

Let's have the so-called hardcore match that was heavily hyped feature 80% promo and 20% lame beatdown. BRILLIANT IDEA!

Let's have Foley turning heel by having him and Edge beat on Tommy Dreamer, a guy who, other than a PPV last year, hasn't wrestled a full-time schedule since 2002. BRILLIANT IDEA!

Let's have a 5-on-2 handicap main event match with absolutely nothing happening. BRILLIANT IDEA!

On top of that, let's NOT mention Joey Styles, who gave such a great promo last week that for one brief second, I almost thought I was watching another wrestling program instead of the usual sports-entertainment drivel that I've being widely ignoring. BRILLIANT IDEA!

I mean, come on, guys. You're not even applying the usual half-assed effort here. And bringing back Jim Ross isn't doing much for me. There is nothing remotely appealing or good about tonight's broadcast and that's sad because of the hype jobs you've been doing for a couple matches that could have been great masterpieces but ended up being lame TV matches nobody gives a shit about.

Not exactly an encouraging notion for me to watch the shows now that I'm home in the evenings.

On the bright side, I got some story done and slipped in a movie review. All of these items will see the light of day soon enough. But for now, I'm calling it a night because I'm tired and have to go to work [study].

Now there's a BRILLIANT IDEA right there! Better get to it so the ratings might go up.
