    WWE Raw - December 8, 2008: The Return of the Slammys

    Well sweet I was right about that. I predct that the HHH/Batista/Legacy stuff will be the 2nd hour main event, and they'll announce superstar of the year before Edge/Cena and it'll be Cena. Which is lame. We'll see.

  11. Didn't see these posted... - Teddy Long opens the show to announce the 3 titles will be defended. - WWE Tag Team Champions: The Miz and John Morrison defeated Shannon Moore & Jimmy Wang Yang. - Armando Estrada came out as the Guest Ring Announcer for the next match. - Vladimir Kozlov defeated Colin Delaney. - They show Nunzio backstage getting ready backstage. Mark Henry comes up to him. Apparently, it is Henry vs. Nunzio tonight. - Victoria & Natalya Neidhart defeated Michelle McCool & Cherry. Neidhart pinned McCool with a rollup and a handful of tights. - Recap of the World Heavyweight Championship match from Backlash. It's Undertaker vs. Great Khali tonight. - Mark Henry defeated Nunzio. Nunzio stands on the ramp, waves out someone. Music hits... The Big Show... and he is in Nunzio's corner. Henry wins, stares down Show during the pin. Show enters ring... Henry backs off and leaves the ring. Show grabs the mic and says, 'why don't you try and pick on someone your own size'. Henry retreats up the aisle. - Matt Hardy makes his first US Title defense next against MVP. - Matt Hardy defeated MVP to retain the WWE US Title. Match went about 15 minutes, real solid match. Hardy wins with a Twist of Fate. - In ring segment, Mick Foley interviews Batista. Reviews Batista's match from Backlash vs. Shawn Michaels. Batista says he respects Shawn, but doesn't like how he got to the top. Foley brings up the comments from Chris Jericho on RAW on the Highlight Reel and says the match has further controversy. Foley asks Batista if he thinks Michaels faked the knee injury to gain the victory at Backlash. Batista hopes for Shawn's sake he is hurt, cause if he isn't, he will be. - Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins defeated Jesse & Festus. - Finlay defeated Julio Dinero with the Celtic Cross. - Undertaker vs. Great Khali. Taker in ring, Edge & Vickie Guerrero on the stage. Vickie says that Taker is reckless, does not look out for his opponents and his submission move is now banned. If he uses it, he will have hell to pay. Vickie then says that because of his actions, Undertaker has been stripped of the World Heavyweight Championship and to bring it to her... he refuses. Khali comes out for the match. Taker puts the submission move on Khali, during this, Hawkins & Ryder hit the ring, take the World Heavyweight Championship and run up the ramp and give it to Vickie. Khali is choked out as Taker goes to head up the ramp after Edge. They escape. Taker looks back and returns to the ring. He chokeslammed a bloodied Khali and left him laying. - No dark match. So to sum up, Taker HAS BEEN STRIPPED OF THE WORLD TITLE.

Hogan with a quick squash in 1988 before he left to film a classic movie with Zeus. 4 shows in one day in 1990. Slaughter with a DQ win over Hogan in 1991, which I assume would set up two months of rematches between the two in Toronto, as was the usual plan. Bret vs Owen in both 1995 and 1996...1996 house show looks pretty sweet actually. A pretty famous RAW from 1997 with the great Bret/Austin stuff and the writing becoming very Russo-esque. Backlash 2002 with Hogan vs HHH and the terrible Austin/Taker match. 2003...remember the white boy challenge? Setting up the Backlash appearance of God in 2006. And finally, I liked this one from just a year ago: Anyways. thoughts, comments, memories etc are welcome.

    Eddy Guerrero passes away

  17. The WCW thread really turned into a great one that people really seemed to enjoy, so with the ECW DVD coming out this week I thought it would be fitting to start an ECW thread. Post something ECW-related that you think the majority of people on this board won't know/remember. Go!
  18. I need to see Havoc 89 now. Great review.

    Smackdown Non-Spoilers for 6/2

    Also of note is that on Velocity there is Gunner Scott vs. SImon Dean and Mexicools vs. London/Kendrick. And Helms and Tatanka vs. jobbers.
  23. What were the dates of Russo's first and second tenures writing for WCW? I know that end date of his second stint is a little hazy, but maybe somebody has a rough idea of when he was pushed out?
  24. These spoilers seem to be legit: And...

    The REAL Smackdown spoilers for 5.26.06

    The Funaki bit is on WWE.com, so that adds to the idea that these spoilers are real and the otheres were fake.
