Hello everyone! Welcome back to The Justin Credible Report exclusively on PWMania.com. Lots to talk about, so let’s jump right into it. Raw was live from ST Louis, MO, and the crowd was hot as always in that great city that’s rich in wrestling tradition. We start off the evening with the special guest referee HBK Shawn Michaels. Shawn spoke about HIAC, and promised to crown a new WWE champion. Little tip, when a wrestler like HBK makes a promise like that you can bet that it happens. Come HIAC either Daniel Bryan, or Randy Orton will be champion. I like the HBK involvement, because of the history between all the participants, including HHH. Would be really cool to see HBK get involved and could you imagine a match including HHH & HBK for Survivor Series. Their is always a possibility.
I’m curious to see what comes out of the Xavier Woods petition to bring Big Show back. WWE does everything for a reason. Which brings me to believe that they will be doing something with that young man very soon. Speaking of Big Show. HHH and Stephanie come out to address what happened last week on Raw. I was one of those people that wasn’t really excited with HHH and Stephanie getting so much time on TV. I must admit I’m really starting to dig the whole gimmick. I know we have seen this before, but the crowd heat that they are getting will build to hopefully the big moment for Bryan. They have been patient with it until know. I think the time is right now for Daniel Bryan.
CM Punks match has been set for HIAC. He will face Ryback and Paul Heyman in a Handicap Match in the cell. They are still doing good stuff on TV, but the feud has run it’s course, in my opinion, so lets hope Punk will finally get his hands on Heyman.
The Main Event on Raw was a No DQ match for the Tag Titles with Tag Champs The Shield vs The Rhodes. It was a great TV match. I enjoyed it as much as anything in a while. First off, they beat the hell out of each other. I mean it was physical. I got sore watching the match. It was back and forth action, with 2 sets of heat. Finally Cody made the last comeback, and as JR says business picked up. After a ton of outside stuff, Dean Ambrose got involved. After a sick spear on Goldust, thru the barricades, Big Show came out of the crowd, knocked out all three men. After that 1 2 3 we have new Tag Team Champions, The Rhodes boys. Great stuff at the end. HHH came down, and went nuts, as Show stood in the crowd doing Bryans Yes gimmick. Exciting ending to a good Monday Night Raw. Makes me want to buy HIAC.
Switching gears a bit. One thing I noticed as of late watching wrestling is that guys aren’t protecting each other as much as they used too. I’m not saying with their own bodies. I’m saying that guys are sometimes taking liberties with others. If you let me tombstone you, for example, it’s my job to make sure your protected. The style right now in the WWE is hard hitting as ever. They are not afraid to lay it in, which is fine. It just makes me nervous that sometimes guys are throwing caution to the wind with other people they should be protecting. Just saying. I just hope that WWE producers aren’t encouraging stuff like that. I know they want the best in ring product they can have, but as Jerry Springer says “Take care of each other”.
This weeks episode of Pro Wrestling 101 has a lot of people talking. It’s about the Promotion and presentation of the Pro Wrestling business. I’m very passionate about this, because I love this business. I love what I do, and in order to keep doing it we as a whole need to protect and respect our business. Last night I got 2 phone calls from promoters I don’t even know. I’m happy that it started a dialogue.
