WWE Treating Raw 1000 Like Wrestlemania, Dean Ambrose’s Debut, Batista Appearance, How Sin Cara Is Perceived

How do you expect the 1000th episode of Raw to turn out?

I’m told WWE is treating the 1000th episode of Raw like Wrestlemania with the writers being put under enormous pressure to deliver the company’s best TV show to date. As I’ve said multiple times, not only does WWE hope to pop the ratings with the show but they are looking to gain momentum as they launch into three hours on a weekly basis. Should the company fail to deliver a very high rating it would be considered a major disappointment.

I’ve been waiting forever to see Dean Ambrose make his debut to the main roster. I know they are working on a storyline for him but when do you think he will finally debut?

Dean Ambrose’s debut to the main WWE roster is considered imminent. We haven’t heard a definitive date but the 1000th Raw would be as good of show as any to bring him in, however, I cannot confirm a date as of this writing.

Is there a possibility Batista appears on the 1000th Raw?

Anything is possible in this business and given the fact Batista doesn’t have a contract with TNA, he would be available for an appearance on WWE television. However, as I’ve reported several times, he says he will not be returning to the company this year. We can’t always take workers at their word (remember Edge told me he wouldn’t appear at SummerSlam but appeared) so we’ll have to wait and see.

How is Sin Cara currently perceived backstage by officials and fellow wrestlers? Has he redeemed himself or is he still looked at as a “botch-artist”?

Sin Cara is no longer viewed as he once was, however, he still has enough support where he’s getting to work. The latest fiasco involving Sin Cara was the blown spot at Money in the Bank with Dolph Ziggler with both workers complaining about the other backstage after the match.

    Tonight would be an awful time to debut Dean Ambrose unless he does something massive. If they just throw him into a match, he'll get lost in the shuffle.

    • Joe O.

      My opinion is Ambrose is the one to crash AJ and Daniel Bryan’s wedding as AJ’s ex-bf setting up a feud between him and Bryan.

      • Matt

        Joe o. Wwe needs to hire you that would be an absolutely perfect angle.

  • Eric

    I bet the Raw 1000th episode is gonna be a let down, because its gonna be filled with alot of childish skits and old has beens squashing current superstars.

    • smithmiester

      Shut up

    • Terry

      Yeah I kinda get the feeling that the two matches that have beem announced will be the only two .

    • nightmarephantom

      I hate to say it but I agree. Usually when there are a lot of legends around it leads to poor in-ring segments like the ones with Slater recently that are just annoying to watch. Or something cheesy with Hornswoggle. Mae Young will try and make out with some 25 year old wrestler and Ron Simmons will walk by and yell "Damn". The over the top "circus attraction" stuff that Vince loves to do for the PG audience. Don't get me wrong I love WWE and am hoping they deliver just as much as anyone else, I am just going to leave my expectations low and if they are surpassed great! Needless to say, Punk, Cena, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Ziggler, Jericho, etc are going to have to work particularly hard to make this show greater.

        Honestly, I'm not expecting the best wrestling tonight, so anything that is good will be a wonderful surprise. I'm actually surprised that people are expecting great wrestling on this show.

    I think that if Ambrose is going to be booked as a main event type guy tonight is a good time to debut. But he has to do something big. Summerslam or Survivor Series seem like good times as well.

  • luminiere

    Hope to see Stone Cold

  • Jashaun

    Is it really gonna be raws 1,000 episode tonight?

  • tna

    does anyone know wether they'll have commercials considering how much stuff they have im genuinly wondering wether they'll have enough time in 3 hours..

    • Guzzie1984

      Sky sports in the UK has 3hrs 15 mins planned, but then they usually plan 2hrs 15 mins for a normal RAW,

  • Kevin

    I can't wait until 7p. I've been looking forward to tonight since they first announced it. I really hope they pull off the greatest Raw ever. The only thing that would make it better is if the entire DX group got back together for this one night, not just HHH and HBK. I'd love to see The New Age Outlaws, X-Pac, and Chyna join HHH and HBK at the beginning of the show. That would be AWESOME!

    • The arbiter

      I would not take a bet on Chyna appearing in a WWE ring anytme soon

  • Robert olley

    Joe.o I said that on yahoo answers yesterday in the exact words you stole my idea.
