So the first instalment has been aired - what did everyone think?

WWE RAW

Spoiler: show
Shawn Michaels confronted The Undertaker
In a rare Raw appearance, The Undertaker took the mic to address the WWE Universe about his upcoming WrestleMania rematch with Shawn Michaels. The Deadman vowed that, despite HBK’s protestations, he will prevail and bury his opponent’s storied career once and for all.

For his part, HBK begged to differ. “Mr. WrestleMania” confronted his tormentor, insisting that The Undertaker’s 17-0 streak will end and that his rival knows deep inside his being that he will be defeated. HBK even proposed a new match stipulation, to which The Deadman readily agreed: The only way either Superstar can win will be by pinfall or submission.

Eve, Kelly Kelly & Gail Kim def. Divas Champion Maryse, Alicia Fox & Katie Lea
A week after the Diva Pajama Pillow Fight Match, the winner of that feather-filled fracas, Eve, managed to make it two in a row when she forced Divas Champion Maryse to tap out. This week, the gorgeous grappler teamed with Kelly Kelly & Gail Kim to tackle the challenge of the conceited Canadian, who hooked up with Alicia Fox and Raw's newest Diva, Katie Lea.

Unified Tag Team Champions Big Show & The Miz vs. John Morrison & R-Truth ended in a No Contest
Having earned their status as No. 1 contenders to the Unified Tag Team Championships, John Morrison & R-Truth dropped by Raw to battle current champions Big Show & The Miz. The match got underway after one of The Miz’s typically bombastic rants. In response, his former tag team partner Morrison and R-Truth double-teamed The “Cleveland Screamer” and sent him over the top rope. The SmackDown duo then punished The World’s Largest Athlete before heading up the entrance ramp after having put “Show-Miz” squarely in their place.

Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase def. Randy Orton
Randy Orton couldn’t wait. As his opponents in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match, Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase, made their way to the ring, their ringleader-turned-rival attacked, leaving the duo dazed before the bout even started. The ambush proved reminiscent of the punishment The Viper dished out to his protégés the week prior.

The Viper, however, would need more than a surprise strike to defeat the two. DiBiase managed to pin the former mentor for an especially satisfying victory. Afterward, Rhodes joined in the fun, also pummeling the impaired Orton with glee.

Sheamus challenged Triple H to a WrestleMania Match
The tension between Triple H and Sheamus all started when The Game effectively ended The Celtic Warrior’s reign as WWE Champion inside of Satan’s Structure. Fitting since a clash between the two should be hell on earth for each man. After suffering a devastating attack by Sheamus last week, Triple H declared that his nemesis would lose his first match ever at WrestleMania – to him! Before the tension became overwhelming, the two collided both inside and outside of the ring.

Evan Bourne def. William Regal in a Money in the Bank Qualifying Match
The line-up for the Money in the Bank Ladder Match is all set. With the inclusion of Evan Bourne, the eight-man field in the WrestleMania showdown has been established. “Air” Bourne managed to secure the final eighth position by bombarding William Regal – as the Englishman’s NXT Rookie Skip Sheffield looked on – with his patented aerial assault and now joins Kane, MVP, Christian, Dolph Ziggler, Shelton Benjamin, Jack Swagger and Matt Hardy to vie for the coveted Money in the Bank briefcase.

“Stone Cold” Steve Austin to act as Raw’s special guest host next week
Quick, somebody hide the beer! “Stone Cold” Steve Austin returns to Raw next week as special guest host. Not only will The Texas Rattlesnake preside over the contract signing between Mr. McMahon and Bret Hart, he’s even announced that next Monday will be WrestleMania Rewind night, featuring rematches from years past including John Cena vs. Big Show (WrestleMania XX), Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho (WrestleMania XIX) and Triple H vs. Randy Orton (25th Anniversary of WrestleMania).

Mr. McMahon def. John Cena in a No Disqualification Handicap Gauntlet Match
It took deception, dishonesty and, oh, about five or so Superstars, but Mr. McMahon finally managed to beat John Cena. The Chairman, hoping to prove a point to his WrestleMania rival Bret Hart, had arranged a match between himself and Cena. Perhaps realizing the odds stacked against him, Mr. McMahon changed the rules of engagement, setting up a Gauntlet-Style bout.

Cena’s first hurdle was Vladimir Kozlov followed by Intercontinental Champion Drew McIntyre, Jack Swagger and a conflicted Mark Henry. When none of these Superstars managed to wear down Cena enough, The Chairman stipulated that the bout was now a No Disqualification Match. After failing to enlist The World’s Strongest Man to nail Cena with the ring bell, WWE Champion Batista entered the fray and laid out Henry. Before The Chairman could clock Cena with the bell, though, Kofi Kingston ran out for the save. Batista seemed prepared as he attacked Kingston and even battled Cena at that point.

With Cena incapacitated, his WrestleMania foe took advantage and Batista Bombed the exhausted Superstar in the ring. Mr. McMahon then quickly pinned him for the win.


TNA IMPACT

Spoiler: show
- The opening match of Hulk Hogan and Abyss vs. AJ Styles and Ric Flair ended in a no contest after Sting made his return and shocked the world by attacking Hogan and Abyss! Hogan promised Flair and Styles that the match would be restarted later, under NO DQ rules.

Anderson interrupted on the big screen, but Angle ran to the backstage area and attacked him. The fight went to the ring, where Angle fought off Anderson and even let the troops get some shots in before hitting the Angle Slam on Anderson and waving the U.S. flag over him. The troops then lifted Angle on their shoulders in celebration.

- In a handicap match made by Eric Bischoff, Beer Money faced Jeff Jarrett with Mick Foley as special referee! During the bout, Foley tried to help Jarrett even the odds by bringing out the barbed wire bat, but another referee took it away. allowing Beer Money to get the win on Jarrett!

- The main event was the restart of Hulk Hogan and Abyss vs. Ric Flair and AJ Styles! While a bloodied Hogan and Flair went after each other, Styles and Abyss faced off! After some major brawling, Hogan sent Styles into Abyss, who hit the Black Hole Slam for the win!

However, in a huge surprise, "The Charismatic Enigma" Jeff Hardy made his TNA return to save Hogan and Abyss as "iMPACT!" went off the air! What an amazing night!

TNA was terrible. A two hour show, and maybe 15 minutes of wrestling.


Spoiler: show
RVD winning his match with Sting in 20 seconds, and then getting beat up for 10 minutes was stupid.


RAW was better.

Both were awful for what they could have done, but Raw was the better show, TNA is just drudging up ex-WWE people praying for a ratings boost that's only getting worse

Haven't watched either but after reading the results I'm glad I didn't. I don't want TNA to try and grab ratings just by having supposedly huge surprises every week. Cack.

I've been watching TNA lately, kind of like the train wreck you just can't help but look at, and it feels like the fall of WCW all over again. They have so much great talent especially in the X division like WCW have in the cruiserweights but focus instead on former WWE talent. I wish TNA the best because competition breed better programming but if they continue down this path, we could be watching the end of TNA.

You have either lost your damn mind or you're an uber fanboy of wwe. I vote for the former but am not counting out the latter. Raw was SHIT, pure and utter SHIT, I've seen baby shit that was more entertaining than Raw has been all year.

15 minutes of wrestling ??? LOL, did you even WATCH it ? I'm guessing you did not because clearly you have no idea what you are saying. TNA was mainly wrestling, unlike wwe which was mainly promo after promo after promo of utter tripe!

1. Cool down. I like WWE better than TNA, and it is better right now, but I'm not biased. If TNA had a good show, I'd praise it.

2.Impact was not, by any definition, mostly wrestling. They had several matches, but they were unbelievable short, and not very good. They have some talented wrestlers, and some untalented ones, but their show was a train wreck. TNA's promo's took up more time, and they weren't very good. Wow, Fat Scott Hall and X-Pac will be wrestling for a contract. I'm so excited. <_<

And, according to the ratings, either everyone is a WWE fanboy, or I have a point when I say TNA wasn't very good this week.

complete turn about this week, raw was actually good for once and tna was mediocre all the way through, except for the hardy/styles match, good match, and abyss slamming flair through the ramp was classic, good ending to an over all meh show.

Austin was a disappointment really, other than the Jericho and HBK kiss ass scenes which were funny, the rest of his appearance as "host" was nothing moe than any of the other useless and stupid hosts, i expected more from SCSA....


i like your gif bats.... how'd you make it ?

Christopher Daniels has been released by TNA.

To think just four months ago he was headlining a PPV too and he's one of the guys who built the company to where it is today so i think he's been treat pretty shabbily by the company.

Guess people are more entertained by Abyss using Hogan's HOF ring like it was a Green Lantern power ring then seeing someone like Daniels wrestle.
