Best of RAW 2009


Recommended Posts

Last night, I started watching the Best of Raw 2009 set. Just made it about 90 min or so, but I can already tell that this is the way to watch RAW. There's so much garbage in a single episode that over the span of a year, it becomes unbearable.


The set is divided by month. Each month gets a highlight reel, and then they show a match or two combined with some segments (not every month gets a match, but most of them do). So the January bit had HBK/Cena and the final Punk/Regal where Punk wins the IC belt [i had forgotten how tiny little Lailer has to almost run to keep up with Regal's steps during their entrance]. Then it had the very long segment that was Jericho having to apologize to Steph and the crowd, and then Randy punting Vince - that anger angle was so bad. It also had Cody and Ted turning on Manu/Sim and joining Randy. That's a busy January - we weren't even to the Rumble yet. There's about 10-12 matches, I figure - I don't have the list in front of me. I am interested in seeing the 10-man tag again from right after Mania where Steamboat got his sendoff. I remember that one being cool, and I am glad it's on here. Plus, there's a Cena/Jericho match from London in April that I never saw -- in fact, most of the matches will be new to me I think. That's how much I tend to avoid RAW.


I already feel like it was $25 well-spent, and I am not finished with the first disc yet. From time to time, I have taken the project of collecting each week's shows to save for later. At one point, I was even getting them once a month from a tape trader. Then I discovered that I never ever go back to them - if there's a specific highly-pimped match I want to see from the past year, it's usually found on youtube or dailymotion with a bit of effort. So a set like this one is ideal. Wish we had one for SD. . .



EDIT: Actually, there's over 20 matches, if you count Mickie vs Santino. Terrific - way more than I expected.
