THE BEST OF RAW 2003
Dec. 22, 2003
What a year it was for RAW! Relive the action, excitement, and many of the highlights from 2003 next Monday when WWE presents the Best of RAW 2003 on Spike TV. 2003 saw new eras begin on RAW as Goldberg made his WWE debut and young guns such as Randy Orton made their mark for the first time. It also saw the end of other eras as WWE said goodbye to Stone Cold Steve Austin and, more recently, Mick Foley.

Catch all of the excitement one more time during the Best of RAW 2003 at 9/8 CT on Spike TV!

Note: RAW will return live from San Antonio on Dec. 29 at 9/8 CT on Spike TV!

Now now, it's Christmas.

Tonight is the review show... but we still have one Raw on the way after tonight.

Hopefully it'll be good... I'd imagine they'd try to make it that way being the last Raw of 2003. Tonight should be interesting though, it'll be cool to look back at the year.

12-22-2003, 10:02 PM
Hmm, I guess this will be me recapping a recap....or something. The first time in a while I bother to sit down and actually recap the show and it's a damn year end review.

M-A-G
12-22-2003, 10:08 PM
We start off in an empty arena. Man, those attendance figures are getting scarier and scarier. Our hosts are Coach and Jerry Lawler and they start arguing off the bat.

Coach starts off by talking about WrestleMania 19. The first match they're going to look at is Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels. I'm not gonna bother recapping the actual match seeing as they're just going to edit it for time purposes. And you should already have the match on tape. And if you don't, SHAME ON YOU! BUY THE DVD! :rant: Anyway, one of the thoughts I had on this match was how in the hell could you book HBK over Jericho in a big match situation like this? This was the perfect opportunity to turn Jericho into a legit major player and not an inept idiot. And the cheap return job Michaels did later in the summer was a joke as well. Anyhow, wrong finish aside, I recall giving this one ****, an easy classic. But as if you expected anything less.

I think it's a cool idea.. it's cool to go back and talk about the year in review.

12-22-2003, 10:22 PM
Back from the break, it is now part of the show where I remind you that this recap is being brought to you by Pepsi, the choice of slutty looking pop celebrities and Ray Charles. Never thought I'd associate those two with anything.

We take a look back at when Molly and Gail assault Lita with her own autobiography. Well....it happened in 2003....and stuff....

Lawler orgasms over a Triple H picture in the WWE Unscripted Book and they pimp the HHH vs. HBK match for next week. Next match they look at is Trish Stratus vs. Victoria in a Chicago Street Fight. Well....it happened in 2003....and stuff.... Again, no recapping of the match as it's being chopped up more times than fish in a sushi bar. It's nice to see how the ladies have progressed in terms of workrate and I gotta believe that 2003 was the year that they earned the respect of the fans. Although my friend is busy wolf-calling throughout this match so perhaps I'm wrong. That aside, I'd say Victoria and Trish were neck and neck as the diva of the year as I'm struggling not to rush and choke my friend for orgasming over these ladies' breasts. This is why I like watching this stuff alone. My friends are controlled by their hormones 98% of the time. Anyway, Victoria gets the win on the outside. This happened in February on a Raw so I can't remember what I gave it but I'd say it was worth a good **.

Kenny
12-22-2003, 10:23 PM
That's right... we get to see the post-Raw Ric Flair celebration tonight. That should be cool.

M-A-G
12-22-2003, 10:34 PM
Next up, it's a look back at the travesty that was the Raw Tenth Anniversary Show. I'd rather forget that. Stacy joins the hosts to pimp BOD spray which is basically COLOGNE. She chooses King over Coach which makes me question her taste in men even more. I mean, first David Flair, then Test, then Scott....Next thing we'll know she's crawling back to Vince.

Next match they look at is Rob Van Dam vs. Christian in a ladder match for the Intercontinental Title. This happened sometime after Unforgiven and it was a doozy. It was never exploited as great and they never bothered to push RVD and Christian any higher after it. Christian went on to bet money over getting laid and RVD would drop the belt twice in two meaningless jobs (Jericho and Randy Orton). Nonetheless, it was an amazing match and it was a great example of what these guys can do when given the ball. It was worth a good ***1/2

Another 2003 moment when Rock looked to leave the WWE after WrestleMania 19. Wasn't too far off from the truth though. Anyhow, Goldberg makes his debut by interrupting him and you know what happens after that.

Match time, as it's Goldberg vs. The Rock from Backlash. This somewhat dampered the debut and credibility of Goldberg as it went on too long and there wasn't much of wrestling and it did nothing to put Goldberg over majorly. I can only fault the person who thought it was a great idea to let this go more than 5 minutes. It was somewhat cool though to see them go at it but when I discuss what happened in the year with my pals we don't even mention this match as it was kind of forgettable. Not to mention the crowd pretty much turns on Goldberg. Anyhow, 3 spears and a Jackhammer later, and Goldberg solidified his presence for the rest of 2003. I remember giving this * but I forget why.

I still think Jericho/Michaels was the best RAW match of the year. So, is SD doing their best of show next week?

Before we leave from the break, we get a quick look at THE KISS OF THE YEAR between Chris Jericho and Trish Stratus from November. I can't wait to see where they're going to take us with those two in the new year.

Gee, the irony that Eric wanted Austin back on RAW. That certainly bit him in the ass.

M-A-G
12-22-2003, 11:07 PM
Back from the break, it's a look at the INCREDIBLE DRAMA that was the build-up to the return of Stone Cold Steve Austin. Man, did that piss off a lot of people....until he actually did show up. I remember my friend still insisting that he wasn't going to show up even when Bischoff was in the ring pleading for a peaceful solution. Boy he had egg on his face when Austin came out. And it wasn't like his return changed anything. He basically got his way by being the dominant superman that he used to be under the same character and not having to put anyone over. Yeah, he jobbed to the Rock a month later but it's the friggin' Rock. Bischoff vs. Austin at No Way Out is shown next. It'd appropriate to show the full match here as it was a total humiliating squash that served to only egohump Austin and Vince McMahon. No stars for this one as you'd expect. Austin wins, loses to the Rock at WM in his last match of the year, gets fired by Eric, returns as co-GM, and is forced to leave that role at Survivor Series. In the middle, he squashed a couple of more actual wrestlers and drank some beers and delivered some Stunners. Yup, big difference he made.

Azriel
12-22-2003, 11:15 PM
Ok, about RAW next week, it looks like Foley will be back next week since the Michaels/HHH match is still going to go on, so what's going to happen?

M-A-G
12-22-2003, 11:17 PM
2003 moment time and it's a major one: THE UNMASKING OF KANE!!! He looked pretty silly the first time he took it off though. I remember being totally pissed and upset at the decision to remove it because he could have still been a monster WITH it. Well, even if it did kill his character he got a whole new one that revamped the Big Red Machine that was getting some good numbers. His heat fizzled a bit with his feud with Shane McMahon as Shane was booked to be the only guy that could hurt the "monster". Nepotism rules, baby!!! Anyhow, Kane tombstones Shane's mom, Shane is all pissy and a bunch of odd and violent attack segments fill three months. We're shown the Ambulance Match from Survivor Series although I don't know why considering their Last Man Standing match at Unforgiven was better but that's not saying much. It was supposedly the last encounter these two would have as Kane would pick up the win and go on to challenge for the World Heavyweight Title at the next PPV. This was pretty violent but silly at many points in the match. Call this one about *.

Azriel
12-22-2003, 11:18 PM
I agree MAG. The Unforgiven match was much better.

I have the Rock / Hurricane interview they just showed... and I got it from Kazaa. I couldn't find the first one though.

That last segment was pretty touching. Fitting music for it too and I'm not just saying that cause I'm a big fan of Evanescence.

I think the saddest thing about it was how some of them went when it comes to drugs and everything. These people seem larger than life and all of a sudden something so stupid takes them away from us.

Kenny
12-22-2003, 11:37 PM
Kenny, which one was the first one?

Well, the one we saw tonight was where Hurricane hid in Rock's locker room the week AFTER the battle royal.

The week before, was the one where Hurricane interupted Rock singing a song and they got into it. Rock said something about Hurricane being Hamburgler. That the Hurricane isn't a real hero.

Hurricane says that he could take the Scorpion King, Rock gets upset.

My FAVORITE part...

Hurricane begins to talk about how Brendan Fraiser did it. Rock gets upset and says it was special affects for the movie.

I want that one so bad but I can't find it.

Loose Cannon
12-22-2003, 11:37 PM
I have both, of the Rock-Cane segments on tape. The first one was way better. The Rock called Hurricane The Hamburglar.

Azriel
12-22-2003, 11:38 PM
Oh, right. I forgot that one.

Kenny
12-22-2003, 11:39 PM
Hey what the f*ck? They were supposed to show the post-match Flair tribute.

Azriel
12-22-2003, 11:40 PM

12-22-2003, 11:40 PM

M-A-G
12-22-2003, 11:41 PM
Another moment: Ric Flair talks down HHH during the time when it looked like Flair was about to break away from HHH. Ric Flair vs. HHH is shown next from a Raw some time after Judgment Day. In fact, I think it was the Raw right after Judgment Day. They had a good angle with this one by the way. Flair doesn't need to be playing second banana to a washed-up cripple in a cheap rip-off stable. Anyhow, it looked like Flair would become 17 time World Champion, WHOOO, but get real, it was a HHH match in 2003 and why should a lowly jobber like Ric Flair get the better of a god like HHH? The Almighty Finisher of Death finishes off Flair and HHH retains the title. Flair would later go on to 'swerve' us (I use 'swerve' loosely cause you could see it a mile away) by turning on Shawn Michaels and showing his allegiance to Evolution as Randy Orton would make his return from injury. Flair would also feud with Shawn Michaels resulting in a match at Bad Blood and HHH would face Kevin Nash in a Hell in a Cell match at the same PPV. Both Evolution members would be successful in their efforts and the stable would be a major force ready to dominate the top throughout the rest of 2003 resulting in the entire stable holding gold by the end of the year.

A look back at The Rock Concert 1 as he talks down Sacremento. More goodness from the Great One, quick breaths of fresh air that he always provided during his short tenure in 2003.

Kenny
12-22-2003, 11:42 PM
I have both, of the Rock-Cane segments on tape. The first one was way better. The Rock called Hurricane The Hamburglar.

The way everyone says Rock - Cane reminds me of the way The Rock used to make fun of Kane.

**Puts hand up to throat**
My name is Kane... and I am a Roody Poo... Candy Ass.

My favorite...

"And all the little kids would come up to your house and ask you to come play kick ball with them... and you'd go and say...

'Well uhhh... I'd like to come out and play with you but the rage and the fire is consuming my soul"

2003 Moment Time: Bad Blood as we're shown more goodness from the Bischoff/Austin feud that looked like it was only intended to have Vince show Eric who was the man and bury his reputation. Bleh, stupid pie-eating crap from the Triathalon, you should know what happens there and if not I want to shake your hand. I can totally see why that was so much better than Ivory vs. Jazz.

We're shown the dramatic 10 man tag team match from Survivor Series that pitted Stone Cold Steve Austin's team (Rob Van Dam, Booker T, Shawn Michaels, and The Dudley Boys) against Eric Bischoff's team (Mark Henry, Christian, Chris Jericho, Randy Orton, and Scott Steiner). This would be the match that ended Austin's reign as co-GM as Shawn Michaels was the last man eliminated by Randy Orton (via help from Batista). Shawn Michaels would go on to beat Batista at Armageddon the next month in a nothing feud and Orton would win the IC Title at the same PPV from RVD. It was a dramatic moment and a fun match to boot and a great display of booking. I think I gave this one ***1/2 and looking at these bits and pieces I'd say I remembered correctly.

Kenny

I wonder why they used the album version of My Immortal though.. the new version is a lot more emotional. Regaurdless it's hard to believe that many went in one year. It makes it kinda scary to get into a new year.

You can listen to it at Evanescence.com. It's the same thing but at the end instead of a piano solo the band kicks in... it made a big impact at concerts cause it was unexpect. I think it makes the song better by a few points though.

You can download the video off of Evanescence.com as well. Amy Lee never looked so good.

They are definately setting us up for some suprises next week on Raw.

If HBK wins the title, and Austin and Foley come back... you won't hear me bitching about the product for a long time.

Imagine this.. HBK is about ready to win, Evolution hits the ring. Refs knocked out... out comes Foley. Foley takes care of Evolution, until they begin to get the best of him... then we hear the glass shatter. Stunner, Stunner, Stunner, One more Stunner (Which means JR will say Stunner atleast 12 times)... HBK gets up, Sweet Chin Music... 1-2-3. Best way a WWF / E year ever ended.

I actually thought he was going for a Mankind mask so we're not too far off there.

I think Shawn might win it with Orton costing Trips the belt by accident.

I guess they didn't show the tribute so that we'll have to buy the DVD. I've been trying to d/l it off of Kazaa, but I can't find a fast enough download of it.

I wouldn't mind seeing that myself.

On another note.. this is weird.

This is the biggest Raw thread we've had here in a good couple of months and it's a review show.

Well, no Flair tribute thing. I guess they forgot or they pulled it for some reason. I don't think it was advertised in the WWE.com preview anyway so no big loss. I guess the only thing I can recommend is buying the Ric Flair DVD....maybe that was the reason it was pulled.

Overall, I can't say they got all of great highlights and that they showed 100% great moments but they got the important stuff in there. It was basically a throwaway show and I applaud them for even finding gold amongst the crap that dominated the year. A nice wrap-up though. Until next time, I'm out.

Not a bad recap at all. I still say HBK/Chris Jericho was the best RAW match hands down with the RVD/Christian match at second.

As for Foley...(off topic, I know)...did anyone hear a bell ring to start that match?

Come to think of it no, but I think that means Orton won by forfit? Hell I don't know.

Maybe my buddy Jerry is right, then, and they'll go with a "the match never happened" type deal and Foley keeps GM...meanwhile, the match could still take place in the near future.
