12/1/08 RAW

Star rating key:
(negative stars) = Bathroom break; should not be on TV
DUD = Fit for TV, but a big letdown
1/4* to 3/4* = It had watchable moments.
* to *3/4 = Average match.
** to **3/4 = Above-average match.
*** to ***3/4 = Great match; usually saved for PPVs
**** to ****3/4 = Match-of-the-year candidate
***** = The rarest of all matches. A classic.

12/1/08 RAW:
Kofi Kingston & CM Punk vs. Cody Rhodes & Manu: **1/2

Melina vs. Jillian: 1/4* (Santino is hilarious)

JBL vs. Shawn Michaels (Street Fight): N/A (match never happened)

Batista vs. Dolph Ziggler: 3/4*

John Morrison vs. Finlay: *1/2

Rey Mysterio vs. The Miz: **1/2 (although it was relatively shorter than Punk/Kofi vs. Team Priceless, the action was real fast-paced with lots of counters and provided great storytelling with Rey's injury from earlier in the night)

John Cena vs. Kane: *3/4

I died laughing when Santino attempted (unsuccessfully) to do Melina's ring entrance. Pairing him with Goldust for a skit later on was just awesome.

Milena Roucka made yet another appearance in the crowd with another Glamazon sign. Seems like the internet reports are true that Roucka will work something with Beth Phoenix later. It could be similar to when Mickie James first debuted as an obsessed fan of Trish Stratus, although the means of debuting Roucka on TV are different.

Stephanie "pulled an Adamle" in announcing the matches for next Monday's 3-hour RAW. That was hilarious.
