Bodeen is back with your look into WWE Monday Night Raw! Love it or hate it, here is what stands out to him!

After two terrible weeks of Monday Night RAW following WrestleMania, this week’s edition of Monday Night RAW did little to improve on the red brand’s recent poor form. Most of the matches and promos on RAW this week dragged on as the build for WrestleMania Backlash continues to feel lackluster and slow with there being very little interest heading into the pay-per-view. However, I am here to look at all the positives from RAW this week, so with all the negative stuff out the way, it is time to once again take a look at the top 5 moments that stood out on Monday Night RAW this week.

5. Rhea Ripley asserts her dominance in a 6-woman tag match against Lana, Naomi and Asuka 

While on paper this may not have been a star-filled match, Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler and Rhea Ripley would put on a great match against Lana, Naomi and Asuka with Rhea Ripley looking extremely strong as she stayed in for most of the match, rarely tagging in her tag team partners. This match would also help advance the feud between Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler against Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke after Brooke and Rose once again distracted Nia Jax.

Ripley would dominate most of the match with Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler being distracted by Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke. The Raw Women’s Champion’s dominance would cut short by Lana, who hit Ripley with a crossbody for a near fall late in the match. Lana would continue to push Ripley late in the match scoring more near falls against Ripley, getting closer to victory with each near-fall.

Unfortatanly, for Lana it would not be enough as Ripley quickly regained control in the match with Ripley hitting Lana with the Riptide. Ripley would then tag in Nia Jax, with Nia hitting a leg drop on a vulnerable Lana for the pinfall victory. 

4. The New Day and Damien Preist take on Elias, The Miz and Jaxson Ryker in a 6-man tag match 

After a lackluster opening of RAW involving Braun Strowman, Drew Mcintyre, T-Bar and Mace, it would be up to The New Day, Damien Preist, The Miz, Elias and Jaxson Ryker to help revive RAW. Despite the match being a bit sloppy and slow at times, the match did a solid job in making Damien Preist looked strong as well as advancing the rivalry between The Miz and Preist with Preist getting the upper hand in their feud this week after Preist and The New Day beat Elias, Miz and Ryker.  

The New Day and Damian Priest would secure the advantage early in the match as their quick tags and teamwork caught Ryker, Elias and The Miz by surprise. However, it wouldn’t take much time for the heels to fight back as they began to work on Preist and The New Day. The New Day would then use their experience to isolate Jaxson Ryker with The New Day and Damian Priest all working together to hit a triple team move on Jaxson Ryker for a close near fall. 

While Ryker, Miz and Elias would fight back once again late in the match, it was The New Day who got the last laugh after Xavier Woods pinned Jaxson Ryker with an inside cradle in a solid match that was a solid highlight on a show that was less than solid this week. 

3. Charlotte has her suspension lifted thanks to Sonya Deville  

After Charlotte was suspended last week on RAW, it was only a matter of time until she would later return to RAW. In a surprise, this amount of time would be just one week as Charlotte appeared on RAW thanks to the help of Sonya Deville who lifted Charlotte’s suspension to the disagreement of Adam Pearce. Charlotte would apologise for her actions last week after attacking a referee when she lost a match against Asuka due to Rhea Ripley interfering, allowing Asuka to pin Charlotte.

After apologising Charlotte would then reveal her true colours forcing the referee to apologise for his mistake last week. Later in the night, Sonya Deville was confronted by Adam Pearce, with Deville paying little attention to Pearce’s protests. Deville would later talk to her former tag partner, Mandy Rose informing Rose that she would have to face off against Charlotte.

Despite Mandy Rose getting a little offence in against Charlotte due to Charlotte being distracted by the referee, Charlotte would make short work of Mandy Rose, pinning Rose after hitting her with the Natural Selection to finish a busy night after being suspended last week. 

2. Riddle and Randy Orton team up for the first time against Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexender  

After beating Randy Orton in a shock win, Riddle would be interviewed backstage this week. Riddle would then be interrupted mid-promo by Randy Orton. Orton would then talk about how much Riddle surprised him last week and how talked about being interested in Riddle’s idea of forming a tag team, much to Riddle’s surprise. 

Riddle and Orton would then get a chance later in the night to show off their tag team skills as they teamed up against Cedric Alexender and Shelton Benjamin. Riddle would look strong in the match early, but Benjamin and Alexender would regain control in the match isolating Riddle from Orton. 

Despite this though, Riddle would pin Orton, with Orton performing a great hot tag which included an amazing RKO on a flying Cedric Alexender. Orton would then hit the hanging DDT on Shelton, tagging in Riddle who hit the floating bro on Shelton for the win in what could be the start of an entertaining team.  

1. Braun Strowman takes on Drew Mcintyre for a chance to take on Bobby Lashley  

After teaming up with each other to take on T-Bar and Mace, Drew Mcintyre and Braun Strowman would face each other later in the night in the main event as the WWE Champion, Bobby Lashley watched on with MVP as Strowman and Mcintyre would destroy each other in a great big man vs big man main event with neither men looking weak in this match.  

Drew would try to get the early advantage against The Monster Among Men, hitting him with a shoulder tackle which did nothing against Strowman. After some back and forth, Strowman would throw Mcintyre outside the ring and get ready to attack Mcintyre, only for Bobby Lashey to come out as RAW went to the ad break. 

Both men would continue to punish each other as Lashley and MVP watched on. Late in the match, Strowman would attempt to hit a powerslam on Drew, only for Drew to be saved by MVP. Drew would then attempt a Claymore only to be distracted by T-Bar and Mace, allowing Strowman to hit the powerslam on Drew for the win, making the WWE Title match at Backlash a triple threat.

AJ’s Thoughts: Five Potential Returns

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

With everything going on with WWE, the one thing we have all been hyped about are all of these returns. Dakota Kai made her return at SummerSlam alongside Io and Bayley and now on last SmackDown, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their returns in a big way against Drew McIntyre and showed the Hourglass to The Bloodline.

With all of that, there have been things in the pipeline saying Triple H’s foot isn’t off the pedal so these are 5 returns from either NXT, main roster or even Try-Outs that I would love to see happen with the new regime.

1. Johnny Gargano

Now this is a name that people have been saying, “Maybe Impact or MLW” but, what about a return? Gargano didn’t renew his contract, most likely to be with his family which is a valid and amazing reason, will never disrespect that. If he were to return, there would be a handful of great reasons. Maybe a singles run with the Intercontinental or United States but with Ciampa getting limelight in the main roster from RAW, what if we get a tag team reunion?

WWE is hurting for Tag Teams and what better than to scare off The Bloodline, loosen  the stranglehold of championships with some Do It Yourself action. DIY reunion could be amazing, especially with newer faces showing up to get championship aspirations like Kross and Ciampa. Want to break the hierarchy? Do It Yourself.

2. James Storm

This one is a little bit weird and off. On one hand, who doesn’t love the Tennessee Cowboy, Jimmy James Storm? On the other, he is 45 and getting some nagging injuries as of late. So why would I say Triple H should bring James Storm back and give him something for the main roster? One of the things I said for Gargano, we have a lack of something and The Usos might need to watch two things in the rearview.

Watch your Money and your Alcohol.

Beer Money showing up in WWE would be amazing in my personal opinion. The Bloodline jump Roode, someone in a hoodie or jacket comes up and jumps them to even the fight and as soon as one Uso remained in the ring, the figure goes down and the old stomping goes off and we hear “BEER…” and Roode looks around and gets hyped up and shouts, “…MONEY!”

3. Big Cass



Since his departure from WWE, he has done something I have said since they split him off from Enzo. Take him through the Kevin Nash School of How To Big Man. ROH and Impact are great examples that he actually cleaned up and worked on what he has to do to be good in the ring. He can work the microphone, he can work the ring so we got a new big boy to take on the WWE once again.

Now I could have said Enzo and Cass to rejoin but, I’m sure the antics of Enzo will get Cass in deep water along with the fact that I already made two tag team predictions, we don’t need another. Cass brings a lot to the table and was kind of unproven in WWE because he was just the big enforcer to the more charismatic Enzo. Give this man about six months in the ring and you have your next MASSIVE problem in the IC or US Championship scene or even more.

4. Bronson Reed



The big man from down under is a former NXT North American Champion. He looked to have a good push going with that championship but he got release. If you wonder where he went… he actually made a pit stop in Impact Wrestling as JONAH with the most fire theme song in recent history I swear… I will link the theme song and Trips… please. Get rights to this theme song. I will be a bigger Bronson Reed fan.

Bronson to me is the weird man in all of this but, I think with Triple H involved, he could get something going for him with a good singles champion run or a big threat to go through like a gatekeeper of sorts. Big boy with a great amount of athleticism? Can’t really hate on that considering the last time we saw athletic bigger people were Keith Lee and… what was that one guy? Sherman Tank with a Ferrari Engine…?

5. Bray Wyatt

And the last one is the obvious one in all of this. Yes… we have Judgment Day as the somewhat supernatural dark group but we know the true successor of the supernatural and that is “The Eater of Worlds”, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. This time around, I don’t think we will get the Jekyl and Hyde, Mister Rogers gimmick. I believe this time around we get full darkness and mayhem. We get the darkness and the theory of reverting back to your prime.

To make a refresher… Miz went back to being the cocky narcissist after fighting The Fiend. Finn turned back to the Prince and much more. With guys like Edge returning, maybe we see the return of the Heel Ultimate Opportunist, maybe a Fiend fight with AJ Styles to get the TN-AJ perhaps. Possibilities are endless and with a great mind like Wyatt for character and execution, I think Hunter will pick up the phone and Let Him In.

– There are clearly others that I could say, or maybe even didn’t think about, but hey, that’s the Chairshot way of Always Using Your Head. Those are just five returns that could happen and hopefully you read this before RAW or SmackDown and who knows if I get any of these right, maybe I missed an obvious one or maybe we get a giant signing that nobody thought possible. Let me and all of Chairshot know!

King’s Greatest Hits Of Jeff Hardy

As he battles his demons, Chris King looks at some more positive moments in Jeff Hardy’s career!

Published

on

Jeff Hardy WWE Smackdown

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the disturbing news that former WWE superstar and recent AEW signee Jeff Hardy, was arrested again for multiple charges including a DUI.  Hardy has had a hard and tragic road of recovery throughout the years in multiple wrestling promotions.

Not too long ago, Hardy walked out on WWE after they were rumored to have offered the former world champion to go to treatment for his substance abuse issues. Hardy refused and said that he was better but, as we saw the demons are still lurking and got the best of him again.

I have seen some nasty comments and even some distasteful memes about the AEW superstar and felt compelled to go against the grain. Instead of kicking a man when he’s down, I’m going to put together a greatest hits for the “Charismatic Enigma.”

Jeff Hardy & The TLC Match

Everyone can say that Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon helped innovate the iconic ladder match and you are right, but Jeff Hardy and his death-defying stunts changed the concept of the match forever. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. Edge & Christian and their iconic TLC match should have their wing in the Hall of Fame. The risks all six superstars took for the adoration of the crowd could have ended all of their illustrious careers. In the words of Vince McMahon, It’s such good shit!

Jeff Hardy Earns The Undertaker’s Respect

On the July 1st, 2002 episode of Monday Night Raw, Hardy delivered the performance of a lifetime nearly winning the WWE Undisputed Championship from The Undertaker in an incredible ladder match. The young up-and-comer was faced with his greatest task yet, challenging for the most prestigious title in sports entertainment. Hardy showed that without a shadow of a doubt he deserved to be in the main event scene, but came within minutes of defeating Taker. At the time of the match, Hardy was still finding his footing as a singles competitor and earned the respect of the champion and legend.

Swanton Bomb From The Heavens

When I think of the daredevil Jeff Hardy, I can’t help but think of this one crazy-as-hell stunt. At WWE One Night Stand 2008, Hardy faced off against the juggernaut Umaga in a falls count anywhere match. This match was so insane as both superstars fought into the parking lot. Hardy is one of the craziest and bravest superstars, hit a Swanton Bomb off a damn stage truck onto Umaga. It’s one of the wildest things you’ll ever see.

Hardy Wins The WWE Championship 

In 2008, Hardy finally made his way to the main event title picture alongside partner Triple H. HHH was Hardy’s mentor in some sort of way which led to the daredevil achieving his lifelong dream of becoming WWE champion. At the 2008 Armageddon pay-per-view, Hardy would face HHH and longtime rival Edge in a triple-threat match for the title. In what was a great match between all three superstars, Hardy delivered a Swanton Bomb to Edge to win the illustrious championship.

Straight Edge Problems For Hardy

The following year, Hardy found himself in the way of young-up-and-comer CM Punk who is looking to make an example out of him. Punk had won the Money in the Bank briefcase for the second year in a row and took advantage of Hardy to win the world title. What started as mutual respect between both superstars changed drastically, when Punk started throwing jabs at Hardy for his drug and substance abuse real-life issues. Punk would form his infamous stable known as the Straight Edge Society. This is a very underrated feud and you should go back and watch it in its entirety. The promos are gold.

The Hardy Boyz Return To WWE

Both Matt and Jeff Hardy found success in multiple other wrestling promotions including Ring of Honor, and TNA during their time away from WWE. Both brothers were struggling with their vices and made poor life choices but straightened up their act over the years. In 2017, the Hardy Boyz would face longtime rivals The Young Bucks in ROH. The following night the adored tag team would make their incredible return to WWE at WrestleMania 33. Matt and Jeff would be named the final team in the Fatal 4-way ladder match for the Raw Tag Team Championships. The pop these two received was insane and very much deserved. They would go on to win the match and win the titles to capitalize on their momentum.

Jeffery Nero Hardy Makes AEW Debut

From 2017-to 2022 Jeff Hardy would find himself pigeonholed in the mid-card title picture. He would have feuds with a plethora of superstars including Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton. Orton and Hardy had a nasty Hell in a Cell match back in 2018. Earlier this year, Hardy was seen running around after the 24/7 Championship, which was disappointing to see. After being genuinely unhappy in WWE, Hardy would make his AEW debut on the March 9th episode of AEW Dynamite. Hardy would come to the aid of his brother and longtime partner.

This week news broke that Hardy had been arrested for multiple charges including a DUI. While it’s easy to beat a man while he’s down, how about we uplift and try to encourage him to get the help he needs.

As a longtime wrestling fan, I have the utmost respect for Hardy and wish him the best of luck in his battle with addiction.
