Title This: WWE Raw Reaction 3-26

Josh Isenberg

Big Show def. Primo:

What I Liked:

Cody Rhodes and Big Show continue their feud here after the match. Rhodes talks very well, even with his slight lisp. He know what to say and how to say it. Yes, he may be a bit monotone, but Rhodes gets a rise out of his opponent and the crowd. That is what he is supposed to do. I wish he had another embarassing moment to show, basically summarizing up the failures of the Big Show. I did enjoy when Rhodes used Big Show's name as another term for "choking" "Failing" and other negative words. I laughed and thought it made sense. The crowd laughed too, shockingly slightly turning to cheer Rhodes. I expect Rhodes to get cheered at Mania as the match progresses.

What I Disliked:

Why in the blue hell is Primo in a match against Big Show? An awful pairing the week into Mania. Give Show someone worth fighting, put him through 6 or 7 minutes of a match against someone similar to Cody's style.  We did not get that.

Grade: B (for the progression of the feud, letting it come full circle in a short time span) F (for everything else)

Zack Ryder is backstage with The Bellas. Eve comes into the shot and talks about her and Ryder at Mania, and what happens after. Ryder tries for a kiss, but Eve says wait until Sunday night.

C.M. Punk is backstage and is upset. He said Jericho lied about his mom and sister, and nobody talks about his family like that. He does a great job showing how mad he really got.

Mark Henry def. The Great Khali:

What I Liked:

I enjoyed the World's Strongest Slam on Khali. Match wise, that is it. Nothing else really happened to break down. After the match ,we got a preview of the chaos we can expect Sunday. Long was trapped and was about to get slammed by Henry, but his team tried making the save. Instead, Booker T came to his rescue and took out Henry. I loved this because this means no Mysterio at WrestleMania. He would have made little sense to be added, while Booker is a "Smackdown" guy who still can go. I do not mind this, they could have picked other worse superstars to be in the match.

What I Disliked:

It seemed to take forever for Truth, Kofi, and the other guys to try and make a save. It felt dragged out. Realistically, Henry could have slammed Long three times in this segment. Make it more of a chaotic and uncontrollable atmosphere.

Grade: B-
