WWE Raw Open Discussion Thread 7/9/12: Now With 100% Fewer Comedy Cookouts

07.09.12 7 years ago 3,346 Comments

This week on a very special edition of Raw, Camacho finds a bottle of speed pills in Rosa’s gym bag. Also …

Wait, I’m getting “actual Raw” and “Brandon’s Raw fan fiction” mixed up again. Here’s the actual preview:

Last week’s Raw SuperShow redefined the word “fallout” when AJ’s lip-lock with WWE Champion CM Punk ended with her putting both Punk and No. 1 contender Daniel Bryan through a table. Elsewhere, Alberto Del Rio responded to becoming No. 1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title with a veritable rampage through the roster. And one of the most exciting Money in the Bank Ladder Match participants picked up a surprise win last week that cost him dearly. How will things play out this Monday on Raw SuperShow?

In other WWE news, “person they should’ve signed three years ago” Sara Del Rey has reportedly been offered a developmental contract SO EXPECT HER TO DEBUT ON RAW TONIGHT (don’t, I’m kidding) and one of the top worldwide trends right now is “Bob Backlund”, so get ready for that.

As always, my 10 favorite comments from tonight’s open discussion will be featured in tomorrow’s Best And Worst Of WWE Raw 7/9/12 column. To nominate a comment for top 10 status, please reply to it with a +1. I urge you to vote for particularly funny, insightful or apropos comments and not just stuff you agree with. “I would have sex with AJ” is not a top comment of the week.

Pre-show discussion questions:

1. Is Kane’s ability to light a charcoal grill confirmation of his fire bending? If so, could Undertaker theoretically teach him to channel lightning through his chokeslam hand and redirect it at people? Bonus question: How many of you are dorky enough to discuss this with me at length?

2. What should our commenting badge be for the Money In The Bank open discussion thread this weekend?

3. If Bob Backlund doesn’t show up (because WWE knows too many people know he’ll show up), which WWE Legend should take his place? Don’t say X-Pac.

4. What’s your favorite GIF from our 20 Best Pro Wrestling GIFs Of June post?
