    I somewhat have a Feeling I'm going to see one of Those wrestlers try and go with the "I'M SO KUL! OHOHOHOHOHOH" Attitude and pull The puppets off the Muppeteers hands or something :c.. If it does happen, I predicted it. xD

    I cannot believe I will have to watch an episode of a show like this in order to see the Muppets...that said, after the way that WWE fans have slammed this appearance so far, I cannot WAIT for the Muppets to come on and be funny and interesting and turn the whole thing around. Fingers, toes and everything else crossed! I feel kinda nervious!

    As much as I stopped watching WWF in 2002, I think it's a pretty gutsy outside the box idea for more exposure outside the usual Disney demographic. So it's cool Diz is trying new things. I'm looking forward to seeing the Muppet clips. I guess the Muppets really are treated like actual people, heh.

    Here's a quick recap so far:

    Kermit & Piggy live in the arena and confronted by Vickie Guerrero & Jack Swagger
    Piggy yells at Vickie, Santino Marella comes to their save, Jack holds Kermit's mouth closed, Kelly Kelly kisses Kermit, Piggy becomes jealous

    Muppet Labs with Bunson and Beaker - breath potion created fro Santino, Beaker leaves to deliver and gets confromted by Christian. Christian takes potion and spills it out and scares Beaker, Shemus comes to his save and the two talk about their family reunion

    Statler and Waldorf in the skybox doing talking and doing the Steve Austin what chant

    Fozzie and Gonzo in hallway corridor, Gonzo talking about how he can be world champ, Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger interrupt and stretch Gonzo's arms and tie them around his head

    Clip of new movie of Piggy confronting Miss Piggy Moopet

    Animal at ringside as special time keeper for Santino vs. Jack, Beaker appears at ringside and give Santino the potion to drink

    Statler & waldorf mocking Michael Cole

    Miss Piggy and John Morrison segment with her touching his abs, he turns her away and brings Hornswaggle, he shows her his Muppet tattoos and he kisses her and she karate chops him and Kermit checks on him, Cody Rhodes puts a bag over Kermit's head to end the segment

    Statler and Waldorf saying John Cena's catch line "You can't see me" and doing his hand signal and talking about John cena vs the Miz and Waldolf says he can't see anything and to consider himself lucky he can't see the Miz

    Wow, Jacobson's Piggy sounds spot on. I still think Whitmire is being too weak as Kermit, but he didn't write the stuff! He does a bang up job on Kermit otherwise, as always.

    I didn't watch the appearance, but did watch the clip in the link provided. It didn't seem that specila to me, though I did enjoy Miss Piggy and that female wrestler doing what looked like rubbing their chests/breasts together.

    Based on what I read about the appearance, it looks like the event didn't include any full-body Muppets. This would have been a great opportunity to use Sweetums, The Mutations, and any other full-body character in good condition (though I don't think Thog would fit in). It also would have been a good opportunity to have used Louis Kazagger (though I have no idea if the puppet exists/was rebuilt).

    Nah, that wouldn't have happened. Even though pro wrestlers get a rap for being "low rent" or whatever in the end, they are professional entertainers. They carried themselves very well actually. And as much as I hate having to tell people this (cause I don't like taking anything away in terms of "entertainment value" or perhaps what some would call "magic" of any show much in the same way I would never admit to my nephew the Muppets are indeed puppets), wrestling is a TV show and if the WWE wanted to do something like that to make a bad guy wrestler or "heel" look more like a jerk, they would of had to run that by Disney first and you can bet Disney wouldn't have gone for that.

    Not all WWE fans have slammed the idea of the Muppets being on WWE Raw. Just the ones who go on the internet every day complaining about WWE right now and how it's nothing like the "attidude era" and don't like that the WWE is marketing itself more as "family entertainment" nowadays, yet most of them still watch it. Truthfully WWE has quite their share of Statlor and Waldorf like fans, :sleep::boo:.

    Like I said in the thread I started about this topic, at the end of the night it's still a WWE show NOT a Muppet show. So of course they were going to keep it to a core select group of Muppets. Sweetums would of been neat. But the Mutations and Louis Kazagger? Yeah I could of predicted that was probably not going to happen.

    That being said, I did enjoy the show overall. I was kind of hoping for a little more Muppets, but it was fun what they had.

    And for anyone wondering that "little guy" Hornswaggle, I'm 99% those are REAL Muppet tattoos he showed Miss. Piggy. I remember a buddy of mine telling me like a year ago or so, that he read in WWE magazine that he was a huge Muppet fan, must of been a huge thrill for him to meet them.

    You know what? I would've expected to see the Swedish Chef, or Scooter, or the newsman. Anyways, I thought it was SO cool to see the Muppets on WWE RAW. I can say how I felt about tonight's special episode in two words: MUPPETS RULE!!!!!!! :)

    Now that I think about it, there was only three Muppeteers and Bill wasn't one of them which does explain no Chef, Rowlf or Pepe.
