Thank's to a popular guy on the message board who goes by the name of "ozzy" I will tell you what I thought of this week's RAW.
I'm looking forward to seeing Benoit wrestle two matches in one PPV. I think he will come out victorious in both matches.
I am really digging the HBK/HHH feud. I can't wait to see this match next week.
Eugene is still undefeated at 4-0 I think.
So Johnny Nitro is fired, eh?
Match of the night was Randy Orton vs. Shawn Michaels.
I thought this RAW was pretty good. I'm only looking forward to about 3 matches for Bad Blood though, but thats okay. Hopefully the HIAC will live up to it's hype.
See ya next Monday!
Remember to eat your Hamburgers :D
