2/27/12 RAW

Daniel Bryan vs. CM Punk: **

Kelly Kelly vs. Nikki Bella: 1/4*

John Cena vs. The Miz: *1/2

Primo & Epico vs. Kofi Kingston & R-Truth vs. Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger: **1/4

Sheamus & Big Show vs. Mark Henry & Cody Rhodes: N/A

Yup, I'm finally getting caught up on my missed episodes this week. Hellish exams will do that. It also forced me to miss going to this RAW live -- Portland's maybe an hour-ish away from me. Yeah. So basically, I missed seeing Rock live. Oh well.

Portland's had some killer RAWs. Punk came out and then Jericho interrupted. Amazing Jericho promo. Vintage Punk rebuttal! Did Jericho invent Canada? That'd be nice. Some of the best back-and-forth exchanges I've ever seen on the mic.

See? Look what I missed. Punk and Bryan going at it AGAIN. Laurinaitis came out with DB, and I guess Santino and Long are on Punk's side tonight. Another controversial finish just to advance multiple storylines.

Last year's Mania between HHH and Taker, with superstar commentary. Great video package. I just hope for a better ending this year.

Divas match. No actual TV entrances for them. Nice finish with the bridge for KK. Twin magic averted tonight. Other than that, I'd call it yet another predictable and short match.

Time for Cena and Miz. Miz was off his game on the mic that night. Stumbled a bit. Cena showing a few more basic moves he usually doesn't use. End was quite familiar, though. Cena trying to gain momentum for his match with Rock.

Triple threat tag team title match? I don't ever recall seeing this type of match before. Good use of these six guys. I like it because there's always a bunch of action going on. See, tag matches don't have to be boring! Nice action. Kane came out afterward and destroyed everyone.

Teddy Long should say "horse's ass" more often. I think that would make the ratings jump.

More Eve heel turn video package! I think Eve should get new music now. "Hoeski" chants for Eve. Short and to the point.

Cody shows Big Show a video package of Show vs. Mayweather. Yeah, that Mayweather guy can punch. Cody played scared throughout this brief deal. Sheamus tagged in, did one move, and it's over. Not rating it.

HBK returns next week. Should be awesome.

Rock segment got a ton of time. Damn. And the first time he was in Portland as a WWE superstar (technically speaking, anyway, since I'd call him a part-time WWE guy and a full-time movie star now). Slap Cena with some kung pao chicken! And Cena's now a kung pao bitch! Let the chants roll! Whoa, Rock used the word babyface! Lady parts! Rocky! Why the hell couldn't I be there for this?! This was freakin' awesome. ROFL. "Cena's Missing Balls" trending worldwide! Wow.

Cena came out and did a great job as well. This is supposed to be PG stuff? I like it.
