WWE taped the December 31st edition of Monday Night Raw last night. Spoilers below:
* The New Years toast with AJ and Ziggler is up next. Cena is invited. Ziggler comes out in a tuxedo and AJ is in a dress. Langston is in regular wrestling gear. They toast the New Year and Ziggler shows clips of Cena’s bad year like the Brock Lesnar slam, getting knocked out by Big Show and others. Dolph un-invites Cena and tells Langston to guard the ring.
AJ and Ziggler kiss but Cena comes out and interrupts. Cena admits he had a bad year but points out AJ’s many relationships. Cena shows a pic of AJ’s many illegitimate children on the big screen and it’s a bunch of babies with various Superstars and Legends heads photoshopped onto them. Cena goes on a long rant about Dolph and then announces he will be in the 30-man Royal Rumble match. Cena promises to win the WWE Title in 2013. Cena toasts AJ and Dolph and then a bunch of fake human waste falls from the rafters and splashes all over the ring, AJ and Ziggler. They throw a fit in the ring as Cena’s music hits and RAW ends. (Source)
I like this new edgier Kaitlyn who doesn’t take crap from anyone, and poor AJ and Dolph getting embarrassed by John Cena but they’ll get their revenge:)
No match? No Aj/Kaitlyn continuation?
At least they’re continuing Eve and Kaitlyn. I’d like to see how that whole scene plays out.
They’re probably saving their last match for RAW’s anniversary show, with next week or Smackdown being a #1 contender’s match.

I don’t think AJ/Kaitlyn will be a weekly thing until Kaitlyn/Eve is done.
They have these backstage things once every while.

I heard they were doing to wait until the 20th anniversary, because it is from Kaitlyn’s hometown!!!
Ed Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 6:55 pm
Don’t be so sure. WWE likes to embarrass the stars in their home towns. Just ask Jim Ross.
layglamacool Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 7:01 pm
I think Kaitlyn will take the title off of Eve and feud with AJ.
rodneyclint Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 10:08 pm
Not everyone gets embarrassed, and wasn’t JR’s a part of a storyline or something? Anywho, I can’t think of the last time someone got “embarrassed” in their hometown unless you count Beth losing to Kelly, which I don’t because I think it helped their feud by pissing Beth off. But then they turned around and gave her her dream match with her best friend in her hometown, so yeah..there’s that.

Her match with Natalya was the one match out of three that she actually won in Buffalo. and It wasn’t even on TV.
redsandman99 Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 5:26 am
Uh yeah it was. It was the the Sept. 28th edition of Smackdown.
Um =/ I wanna see a match , but at least we get divas I guess .
DJ8946 Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 4:42 pm
Why did there need to be a match. If we would’ve it would have been Kaitlyn vs Eve & then people would be complain about how we’ve see it too many times or how its boring & how they want Paige to come up.
KJ Mendez Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 6:30 pm
LMAO at the Paige thing ’cause it’s completely true .
sugarrush28 Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 8:19 pm
Sure is and i’m one of those people waiting for Paige to be called up. Though I wish AJ and Eve was still in the books for WM because I wouldn’t mind seeing them go at it.
I guess for those who didn’t see the whole spoilers: all the champions had to defend their titles and they had to choose their own opponent.
I honestly started laughing when I saw that Eve picked
Mae Young lol. Even Cesaro picked Sgt. Slaughter.
lol I knew it was going to be a face fest again,but I like it tbh. Eve makes a huge heel move basically claiming that she’s better champ than Mae Young or any of the women before Eve,I love it. And Kaitlyn is slowly becoming one of my faves. Wasn’t sure when she won NXT,but now I see she has some fire in her. Love her agreassion,hope they both do well in the segment.
Is it strange that all hot heel couples feud with Cena? Well,AJ has nothing to complain,at least she has yet to appear naked in a bed in the middle of the ring while pervy Cena looks under the covers :D
K2Evefan Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 8:48 pm
I dont really think eve was trying to say she was better than mae young but instead showing that she is a heel that will do anything to keep her title even wrestle someone as old as mae young lol. But all in all still entertaining pick by eve.
charovnica Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 7:57 am
My guess gives her more credit and I’d like to thing she was mocking the past ,because she’s owning the present :D
Eve calling out Mae Young like that is classic heel shit. And it’s a bit of a different way of continuing Eve and Kaitlyn’s feud besides from Kaitlyn just beating her in tag and non title matches.
I don’t care if there isn’t a match. Eve is getting mic time! We will most likely see them have 2 more singles matches. I hope atleast one of them is a gimmck match & they should have Kaitlyn challenge Eve the week before the 20th Annversary.
MattyM Reply:January 1st, 2013 at 1:03 am
Kaityn will most likely face Eve at 20th Anniversary because it is in H-Town where she is from and also I will be there and will riot if I don’t see my Kaitlyn
Omg I hate cena, he always needs te spotlight when all the mid carders are way better then him, it’s just very frustrating.
Atleast we got on-screen divas segment/match ..
Wolverine Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 6:24 pm
Sorry not all the heels are better than him
rodneyclint Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 10:21 pm
erm, I think it’s Vince who needs to have Cena in the spotlight. And you should be happy AJ and Dolph get to have a program with him as it will only benefit them in the long run.
Oh wow. Sounds boring. Hopefully, Paige debuts soon.
Can we get another feud please talk about boring
layglamacool Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 7:03 pm
I think it is interesting but I agree that they need to move on from this, it is a bit dragged out
TibarnEl Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 2:32 am
I think it’s good we’ve got a feud that’s lasting a while. It sure beats whatever the hell post-Laycool era was. Would you rather watch Kelly and Eve vs Bellas?
At least we get divas at all . & plus it sounds like it’ll be entertaining . Aww my baby AJ gets teased again for her many relationships . John Cena always callin’ out the hoeskies .
I want to like kaitlyn, but I don’t take her serious with that theme she has. I can’t stand it.
even though i’m not fan of eve and kaitlyn’s at all, it’s good to see storyline continuation. This feud has been going on since the battle royal where Kaitlyn won it and that was atleast 3/4 months ago now so it’s good to see 2 divas feuding for that length of time but I do know where people come from because we’ve seen Kaitlyn vs Eve loads of times now. I do think Kaitlyn will win the title on the 20th year of RAW not because it’s in her hometown but because she’s had too many shots at the gold that I think it’s time for a new face for the title, however, if and when Kaitlyn wins the gold, who will she face? the only option and rumored option is AJ which does look good for a ‘Mania feud. Apart from AJ, who else? Tamina? nope, she just isn’t good enough for a storyline in my opinion in terms of character.
2013 needs to be the year that new divas are placed on the main roster and are put into storylines. Audrey, Paige, Summer and Sasha all need to come up. Coming from the person who did say that Mickie would be released in the year that she was for some reason, I do think 2013 will be a BIG shock for the division.
SweeneyTodd Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 7:26 pm
How should this work at WM? It’s in AJ’s Hometown and who ever will face AJ will be booed out of the arena.
Acrant Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 7:29 pm
Does it really matter? They’ll just acknowledge that the fans will cheer for AJ since its it at her place.
They do it with Cena all the time.
SweeneyTodd Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 7:31 pm
Doesn’t help a face champion against AJ. It was stupid enough turn AJ heel because only of the reason Nikki Bella is Cenas Real Life Girlfriend.
Acrant Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 7:32 pm
I won’t even matter that much in the long run. If anything its a fun atmosphere to have.
Not everything has to be so clear cut.
sugarrush28 Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 8:24 pm
Does that really matter now? I mean Trish was booed out the building when she faced Mickie.
K2Evefan Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 8:53 pm
The same thing happened between kelly kelly and beth in buffalo. They were cheering the heel and booing the face. But that was the only time it happened to either of them.
BORING. We have Eve vs. Kaitlyn since august and the matches are far away from good. Maybe Tamina & Natalya should leave this place. Something went wrong. Natalya used crappy since her title run and Tamina comeback killed after one week.Talent doesn’t matter in the company.
Acrant Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 7:31 pm
Eve/Kaitlyn matches have been pretty good actually. They’ve been doing a good job. It actually feels like it means something now.
SweeneyTodd Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 7:46 pm
Watch matches have you seen? Full of botches. There ppv hair pulling, slep, kick, not much more.
Acrant Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 7:47 pm
BS on the botches. They’ve been wrestling like they actually want to beat each other up.
Thats more important than perfectly executed wrestling moves.
puppies Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 8:14 pm
You are so negative about everything. Their matches aren’t bad, their feud is being treated like something real as opposed to the usual winning a random #1 contender shot, a week of build-up, and a title match at a PPV and then me er spoken of again. There’s been no botches in their matches either, so….
sugarrush28 Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 8:25 pm
I have to agree. I think the Eve/Kaitlyn matches have been fine. But everyone has their own opinion on things so it is what it is.
K2Evefan Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 9:04 pm
We already know not to take your post seriously because you used the word “talent” to tamina. Unless of course you were talking about something other than taminas in ring skills or acting skills because there is no talent in those areas for tamina. Its funny you talk about kaitlyn and eve doing the same thing but what about tamina? Her move set consist of awkward looking headbut, awkward looking headbut, clothesline, super kick, samoan drop, superfly splash. Same thing in the same order. A good pedigree doesnt = talent for everyone, it didnt for natalya either she had to work her ass off to become as good as she is.
20th Anniversary will be the night that Kaitlyn wins her title. She will get a speech, then will be attacked by AJ. They will feud until WrestleMania or maybe afterwards.
Happy that we are getting continuation as also a REAL feud that is going for months now instead of a random contender, a title match to win or lose without any background or meaning.
I love the fact that Kaitlyn isn’t the regular face either.
She shows aggression and kicks butt without taking Eves crap. :)
Refreshing to say the least.
I just hope that if she wins the title it won’t be something like Jillians treatment though.
I laughed when I read Eve challenged Mae Young. And if the WWE were to regularly do a champions night once a month on Raw this could be good for every division.
JamieKym Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 4:38 pm
Damn right. Yes. Best comment ever.
I think AJ essentially inherited the gimmick of EVERY to babyface in the past decade. Psycho Mickie + Slutty Lita + Bitchy Trish = AJ Lee. As for the Kaitlyn/Eve thing, it lost it’s luster when Aksana was revealed as the “attacker,” which added absolutely nothing to keep me interested in this feud. After hearing how Michelle and Melina got in trouble for being “too good,” it makes more sense why they’re pushing the likes of Kaitlyn when the majority of the division can wrestle circles around her (Nattie and Alicia in particular).
09DHK Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 11:11 pm
*top babyface (stupid typo)…
Acrant Reply:December 30th, 2012 at 11:56 pm
That makes no sense. Kaitlyn and Eve have been way more physical than other diva matches. Kaitlyn’s getting pushed because she the potential to be a real star (more than Alicia and Nattie do now since they’ve been turned so many times) and there’s a readymade tie in with AJ.
DJ8946 Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 2:41 am
Kaitlyn has only been wrestling for 2 years. & when you look at her moveset & sher recent matches with Eve (even though they are usually brawls) you can see her talent & potiental. Natalya will be there for at least 3 more years & Alicia is 25 so she has plenty of time to get pushed.
09DHK Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 4:41 am
If Kaitlyn were being pushed as more of a brawler than a technical wrestler, I’d probably be able to better believe that she’s a legitimate threat to Eve’s title. Sure she’s improved, but not only should this feud have ended at Survivor Series when Kaitlyn lost to Eve, but she’s not really over with fans yet. Plus, it doesn’t really help her to be tossed around the ring and lifted by Eve if they’re pushing her as a “powerhouse diva”. And this is strictly personal preference, but I think Kaitlyn’s gutbuster would look better if the opponent were dropped from a military press position to showcase her strength. I’m not saying that Kaitlyn’s Rosa Mendes bad, but this feud is stale. At this point, it’s like: either give her the title or don’t.
Acrant Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 4:44 am
She’s been pushed as a brawler. Thats what makes her different. They’ve said that before.
And she’s been getting better reactions, especially when she wins. Giving up on pushes so quickly is how none of the divas get over anymore.
puppies Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 5:29 am
The whole “give her the title or don’t” logic is what makes the divas “storylines” boring. Look at Lita’s first two reigns, she never got it on her first try. It was a battle that last months (years, even) that made the climax that much better. Same with Trish during her Victoria feud which lead to her big WM moment. Now, imagine that they had the logic of “Oh, let’s just give them the title at this PPV, even though there’s no story to it or build-up. But who cares!”.
Would any of those moments have meant as much had the divas not been given any real story to tell or any rising action? Sure, they probably would’ve still been good, but not as good.
09DHK Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 6:50 am
The difference between Lita and Kaitlyn is the fact that Lita was over with fans LONG before her first title reign, so the fans were more willing to invest in her championship pursuit. Had they gotten Kaitlyn over as a top babyface BEFORE she entered her feud with Eve as opposed to trying to get her over in mid-feud, I’d probably be more interested in her pursuit for the title. That’s exactly what was wrong with Layla’s title reign; she (like Kaitlyn) was chosen out of left field for a championship push, but despite her solid in-ring ability, very few people were interested in her title reign due to the fact that WWE didn’t get her over as a top babyface BEFORE she got the title since she was shelved pretty much at the beginning of her face turn.
Why do the keep having Eve loose/get beat up?? The heel should have momentum, at least some (especially since shes the champ). That way Kaitlyn will get her emotional storytale victory in her hometown for the belt.
DJ8946 Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 2:43 am
After this match there are still 2 more weeks until the Anniversary so somewhere Eve will embarrass Kaitlyn.
I JUST GOT A IDEA!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, the kaitlyn and eve fued continues until raw’s 20th aniversarry. On the 20th aniversarry eve and kailtlyn have a divas title match in kaitlyns home town. Eve and kaitlyn are having a solid back and forth match. Kaitlyn gains the upperhand. kaitlyn hits her finisher. Right when it looks as though kaitlyn is about to win, she is distracted by Aj who is running down the ramp. Aj hopps up on the ring aprin. While kaitlyn is yelling at Aj to go away eve rolls up kaitlyn for the win. Eve roles out of the ring as quickly as possible and snatches her title out of the guys hand who is handing it to her, and runs/joggs out of the areana laughing triumphantly. Aj is in the ring now. Kaitlyn is devastated and crying on her knees in the middle of the ring. Then, BOOM!! shining wizard from Aj to kaitlyn. With kaitlyn laid out in the ring, Aj is yelling at her saying: “You didn’t deserve it!”. “I should’ve been in that match!” . “I’m better than you!”.
From here on out, Aj gets involved in the eve and kaitlyn fued leading to a triple threat for the butterfly belt at wrestlemania. Where either kaitlyn or Aj wins the title.
DJ8946 Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 4:16 am
Good idea. I think either way it will be a triple threat at 1st I thought Eve woud go get married but now I think that there is no way she is missing out on a WM paycheck so after WM she would get married.
Unfortunately I haven’t enjoyed either AJ or Kaitlyn over the last few months, so… yeah.
What I would like to see is Vickie deploy Tamina to exact revenge on AJ for stealing Dolph. Or even for Alicia to be released from her shackles and actually steal a shock victory over Eve.
Or Natalya. More Natalya is always a good idea.
TheGamergirl22 Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 4:07 am
but what if Tamina betrays Vickie (cuz she’s pissed Vickie didn’t use her after she lost to AJ) and sides with AJ (she a heel now so she could use a bodygaurd)
So it’s AJ (with Tamina) vs Kaitlyn (with Vickie (turned face at some point) and they have NXT history)
I think Kaitlyn will win the title at the 20th anniversary of raw and then feud with Tamina since she is being portrayed as a super dominate heel and just beat Layla at the Smackdown tapings.
TheGamergirl22 Reply:December 31st, 2012 at 4:09 am
yeah was surprised when I saw that ( I guess maybe Layla is replacing Alicia as the face jobber)
I thought that was hilarious when I read that
Surprised she didn’t pick Naomi or Camren
Also next week people are going to avoid AJ cuz she smells like crap Also Kaitlyn being badass but yes wanna see Kailyn vs someone else now oe Eve vs someone else
Also Nattie does double duty
against Alicia in a dark match and in a six person tag match
I know a lot of people will hate me for this, but I want to see Aj vs Vickie at WM
