RAW...is....WAR!!!!
So tonight was RAW is WAR in Sac, at the Arco Arena. It's my first live wrestling event ever; I know for sure that the WWF was here for the Royal Rumble in 1990, but since then, who knows. Being my first ever time at a live show, I had to bring a sign. Double-sided:

"Kanyon Fears Nova"
&
"Jeff Hardy: Mrs. PPV?"

To explain the first one, there is something of an argument amongst wrestling fans over who is the real "Innovator of Offense". OK, so it's not very widespread, since neither Kanyon or Nova is particularly well known - well, Kanyon didn't used to be. Kanyon has been handed that title outright, mostly by virtue of being more nationally exposed. Personally, I am a believer that Nova (whose sole stint in the US was in ECW) innovates more moves than most guys combined. You'd have to see them to understand. So, basically, since Kanyon is getting major air time and I'm a big Nova fan, I thought I'd be clever with that one and make that one side.

The second one is a double joke. The easiest to explain is that RVD is known as "Mr. PPV" and I combined that with the rumors that Jeff is gay - evidenced by a sign at SummerSlam that had something to do with the Rainbow - to get "Mrs. PPV". Well, I thought it was funny.]

Most of the show reviews I have read have been VERY negative. Being in attendance obviously gives one bias, but I didn't think it was that bad, really. I was just happy to see Lance Storm go against The Rock, even if the outcome was something of a foregone conclusion. The midget thing was funny. I loved the whole milk escapade at the end, and to people who are bitching about it, do you think the writers were just ripping off their own bit???? NO!!! They did it on purpose!!!! Geez. But someone, please, take the mic away from Steph's mouth. She was annoying when she talked, but good god, even trying to sing bad, it was literally offensive to my trained ears.

Um.....there is probably more. It was fun for me, and we were so close! I just hope I get to see a show when Triple H and/or Benoit is back and healthy.
