>> RAW TAWKBy Ginger, [GLRSS@...]
Hey! Welcome to RAW Tawk! Whether it's your first visit, or if you've
been with me since my Wrestling-Online debut in April, I'm glad you're
here and I hope you'll stick around! If you take the time to read what I
write, I appreciate you! :)
Geez! In the immortal words of SmackDown's Zach Gowen, "Enough of this
Moooshy Crap!" Let's chat about the happenings within the RAW Brand of
WWE during the past week.
In my one and only Heat comment of the week, I must say, I was appalled
as The Undertaker arrived at the Vengeance venue riding his motorcycle.
. .without a HELMET!!! Nice role model, 'Taker!
So, I'm watching RAW and. . . Wait a second! Vince McMahon is saying
he's only there to avenge his wife? Does he think we don't watch
Hey! Stacy Keibler's skirt looks. . .familiar. Wait a minute! Stacy
Keibler stole my curtains!! Test and Christian: The UnaHAIRicans!!
HAHAHAHA!! Get it? Un-a-HAIR-icans? Eh. . .nevermind. . .
Call me crazy, but right before Scott Steiner suplexed Christian over
the top rope, the two men shared a moment. It was quick, but it was
definitely a hug! (A *manly* hug, of course!)
Speaking of Scott Steiner, does anyone know, did he actually hurt his
wrist on Monday night? When he was bleeped for saying a naughty word,
rolled around LOOKING like he was in some serious pain, and THEN we
abruptly went to a commercial, I was sure he was legitimately hurt.
Then, when we came back from the break, Steiner seemed to be favoring
one arm. Just curious. I *do* realize that Steiner is an outstanding
actor. Remember in WCW when, after being rolled to the ring in a
wheelchair by his big brother, Rick, Scotty tearfully announced his
retirement. . .only to return later in the show as a pipe-wielding
member of the nWo? He practically had ME in tears! I might have been
angry, but I *LOVE* a good swerve!
Did you guys see the sign in the audience that said "Stephanie is a
Mc-MAN"? I know, Steph is on SmackDown, but this just irks me. It's
obvious that the future Mrs. The Game has been working out. Why is it
that when guys see a woman more buff than THEY are, they have to start
insinuating that they're men? First Chyna, then Jazz, now Stephanie?
And they say WOMEN are catty!
I certainly understand why Chris Jericho would want to play - and REplay
- his stunning victory by submission over Shawn Michaels during the
Highlight Reel. But, was it *really* necessary to show the interference
by members of Evolution beforehand? I think NOT! These were two
different and completely separate incidents! It's like they were trying
to make us believe that Y2J couldn't have won the match without help!
And, we all know, that's just absurd. . .
It was really classy of Randy Orton to present Y2J with an Evolution tee
shirt during his guest appearance on the most important segment of RAW.
I think all of the Highlight Reel guests should follow his example and
give Chris gifts! I'm already putting together a very special little
gift basket for when he starts reading my column and invites ME to be on
Oh my GOD! Kenny Rogers came out to save Shawn Michaels from Jericho
and Orton! Oh, wait. . . That's Kevin Nash. . .
I wonder if Mark Jindrak and Garrison Cade realize that they've
inherited their ring gear from Billy and Chuck?
Molly won! Molly WON! And she won clean!!! This is AWESOME!!!
Oh, how sweet! Shane McMahon got revenge for his Mommy! I guess now he
doesn't need to buy her a Mother's Day gift! I'd like to say that my
dear son, Joey, would do the same for me, but Kane is his favorite
wrestler, so it's a toss up. . .
Well, it's hot here and I've pretty much run out of things to say. If I
don't melt into a sticky puddle of goo, I should be back again next week
with more RAW Tawk. Until then, be sure to check out the most
interactive column on the Web (Or, at least the most interactive column
that *I* post on the Web!), "Dear Auntie Ginger." The latest edition is
