Ken Anderson On TNA Wrestling’s Positive Progression & Celebrity Role Models, Rolling Stone Calls RAW The ‘Rock & Schlock’ Connection

Rolling Stone’s Kenny Herzog is back with his weekly RAW Recap column, and broke this week’s show down into five takeaway points (and some other Tweet-worthy bits).

You can read an excerpt from the column below, which features Herzog agreeing with the masses about the groanworthy segment featuring the night’s ‘special guests’: 

Kathie Lee and Hoda + Adam Rose = Oy Vey
Today fourth-hour co-hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb are great in their full-time gig, but bringing a makeshift KLG and HK set inside the Raw ring and adapting their shtick to this environment was the wrong move, even if their appearance was for a great cause.

Despite Gifford’s attempts to woo the crowd by reminding them that her mother’s a Brooklyn native (a gesture unlikely to win over an audience who, one might presume, largely commuted from Manhattan or the ‘burbs), the Barclays faithful rightly intuited that there’d be little-to-no wrestling value in what came next. That wine bottle should have been smashed over some poor jobber’s head (too bad Heath Slater was busy prepping to accompany Mini-Gator), not playfully popped against Gifford’s backside. And Rose all but left Hoda and her “crazy dance” out to dry, despite his typical itch for arrhythmic revelry. Even amid a particularly cartoonish show, this whole production was a real head-scratcher.
