8/17/09 RAW

Kofi Kingston vs. Carlito (U.S. Title): **1/2

The Miz vs. Evan Bourne: **

Mickie James vs. Gail Kim (Divas Title): -**

MVP vs. Jack Swagger: DUD

Hornswoggle vs. Chavo Guerrero (Falls Count Anywhere): -*

John Cena & Randy Orton vs. Chris Jericho & The Big Show: *1/2

OK, let's do a rundown of the show:

Wow, the show actually had two decent openers! Amazing!

Mickie vs. Gail was the worst match I've seen since Jenna/Sharmell on TNA. That's just absolutely no excuse, especially when these are supposed to be two of RAW's best women wrestlers on the active roster. Mickie failed to cover up any botches, and pretty much all the botches came when she was on the offensive. Mickie looked pissed after the match, and I don't think there's a heel turn coming just yet either.

(Sorry Red, I know I wanted to give the divas match just a slight negative, but let's face it: the match was pure crap and probably one of the bigger letdowns I've seen this year.)

Swagger and MVP barely happened, enough for a DUD.

Hornswoggle's debacle of a match was only better than the divas match because the crowd actually enjoyed it. I, however, thought it was a waste of time.

Finally, the main event tried, and failed to impress me.

RAW checklist:
Decent matches? Nice, a bonus!
Many crappy matches? Check!
Goofy entertainment? Check!
Lackluster main event? Check!

What does that equal? FAIL!
