WORST: COOL PARTY YOU GUYS

Quite a gathering before Raw where a bunch of guys who don’t like each other can all manage to sit real close together. Someone interrupts Johnny’s speech and the camera can’t find who it is. It’s obviously Punk but he comes through the crowd like he’s Too Soon Hall of Famer Edge and it’s weird that the champion would be in the back of the room of an important meeting. the Great Khali is wearing a dress shirt.

Brodus Clay thinks Punk calling Laurinaitis a “toolbox” is really funny. Like, he’s super into it. Great Khali doesn’t get it At ALL (but he’s wearing a great dress shirt). Punk is a prankster, always telling jokes, says Johnny. Pranksters mainly play pranks though, not tell jokes. He should have said “Punk is a prankster, always pulling pranks” but I guess I can’t have everything I want.

People Power is said a couple of times but it doesn’t appear to be trending on Twitter so maybe we’ll never hear it again. All in all, a really cool party.

WORST: USE BOLD MARKER FOR POSTER BOARDS

Put your Twitter Feed Poster board in marker, bro. Because I would be following you right now but instead people are following me because I put my twitter handle in bold.

WORST: HEARING THE END OF ROCK’S INTRO SONG

Rock posing so much that his intro song (available on iTunes, I guess) got to that weird part where it slows down and sounds like Guitar Gary messed something up. So you know, I’m all for posing and was first in line for the WBF magazine when I was a kid (what up Gary Strydom!).

Later The Rock shows us his goosebumps and we get it. Then he shows us again and this time explains what he’s doing. Show don’t tell, Rocky. It’s like, you wouldn’t hand your girlfriend some roses and then stare at her for approval and then 5 minutes later hand her some more roses and this time say “I want you to know what I’m doing here so you don’t think I’m crazy. I’m giving you roses because I have passionate feelings for you.”

Then, when they mute the “Christ” in “Jesus H Christ” it’s awkward and I’m curious how many people thought of “Jesus HHH Christ”. You know, King of Kings. The Cerebral Savior.

BEST: MICHAEL COLE APPRECIATES CANADIAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE HUMOR

Dwayne was all like “you gotta be really terrible to get cut from the CFL” and then Michael Cole just laughs and laughs. Pretty sure that anyone watching Raw tonight who also happens to be a former Canadian Football League player who got cut felt Rock’s boot in their own ass. Way to alienate your fans.

BEST: CHANTING “YES YES YES” WHEN ROCKY SAYS HE’S STAYING

Maybe they felt bad because they started the “thank you rocky” chant right after the YES YES YES as if they were following a very precise script but let’s think for a minute that the crowd was like “oh, rocky is staying then i want him to fight daniel bryan” and then they all immediately started chanting YES YES YES.

Or let’s imagine that Daniel Bryan is so over that anytime anyone ever says anything that the live crowd appreciates they will YES YES YES it up real good. Or let’s imagine that YES YES YES is the new WHAT which would be great.

While we’re imagining, wouldn’t YES YES YES beat WHAT in a catchphrase casket match in less than 18 seconds?

WORST: ROCKY WIPES A MONKEYS ASS WITH THE WORD IMPOSSIBLE AND ALSO HE WANTS TO BE WWE CHAMPION

It’s impossible to do a physical activity with a word because a word isn’t something that you can hold in your hands and wipe an ass with just like it’s impossible to win a championship in a sport you don’t compete in anymore.

Or is it.
