WWE Raw – Dec 2nd 2019: Results & Review

  • Nerdly
Welcome to this week’s Monday Night Raw review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and this show sucked. Plug your nose, bite your lip and get ready to give this Hell, because it’s not gonna be pretty. Also…Wazaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaup!!!!!!!!!!!

Match #1: Kevin Owens def. Bobby Lashley (Disqualification) The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

It’s hard to know who got the worst of what began as a Kevin Owens vs. Bobby Lashley match but soon turned into a two-on-one beatdown and ended in a dual arrest. It’s fair to say that Owens was certainly worse off at the end of the bout, which saw Aop ambush him in the middle of the action. Owens won via disqualification, but Akam & Rezar concluded the beatdown by dragging him out of the arena.

My Opinion: 2.5 out of 5 – This match never had a chance to get going like it should.

Shelley Morrison, Will & Grace Actress, Dead at 83

Shelley Morrison, best known for her role on NBC's Will & Grace, has died.

She was 83.

Morrison's publicist revealed to the Associated Press that the star died of heart failure on Sunday.

The actress was a fan-favorite on Will & Grace. Slated to appear in just one episode, she went on to appear on 68 episodes as Rosario, Karen's housekeeper.

This shows how much of an impact she made on the audience of the NBC comedy.

“Shelley’s greatest pride as an actress was in playing the indomitable Rosario, in a comedy series that furthered the cause of social equity and fairness for Lgbtq people. "She also took pride in portraying a strong, loving yet feisty Latina character,” her husband of 46 years, Walter Dominguez, said in a statement.

Morrison did not return for the 2017 revival, with Rosario dying off-screen during the first season of the revival.

The ‘Will & Grace’ Cast Remembers Shelley Morrison
Shelley Morrison, who passed away Sunday at the age of 83, was best known for playing Karen Walker’s (Megan Mullally) opinionated maid Rosario Salazar during the original run of the Emmy-winning NBC comedy.

Morrison made her debut as Rosario in the season one finale. She quickly became a fan favorite and was promoted to a series regular at the start of Season 3, the only actor ever to join the original series regular quartet of Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Mullally and Sean Hayes. Morrison briefly reprised her role on the 2016 election-themed Will & Grace reunion video, which led to the series’ revival on NBC.

While the creators wanted Morrison to be in the new seasons, she had retired from acting. “It was with a heavy heart that she gave us that information and that we received it,” Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick said in August 2017.

Shelley Morrison, ‘Will & Grace’ Actress, Dies at 83
Shelley Morrison, who played Karen Walker’s sharp-tongued yet endearing maid Rosario Salazar on “Will & Grace” from 1999-2006, has died. She was 83.

Rosario, who hailed from El Salvador, was originally written to appear in just one episode of the hit NBC series, but her dynamic with Megan Mullally’s Karen resonated so well with audiences that the charater went on to appear in 68 episodes over eight seasons of the original series. According to co-creator Max Mutchnick, Morrison was asked to reprise her role for the revival of “Will & Grace,” but had decided to retire from acting completely.

Sean Hayes, who played Jack McFarland on “Will & Grace,” remembered Morrison in an Instagram post.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ariana Grande, Debra Messing Support Gabrielle Union In Her ‘America’s Got Talent’ Flap
The ranks of celebrity supporters for former America’s Got Talent host Gabrielle Union continues to swell, as new backers chime in on social media over her dismissal from the show.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ariana Grande, Debra Messing, Ellen Pompeo, Jameela Jamil, Yara Shahidi, and Patricia Arquette have so far voiced support for Union, who complained of a “toxic culture” on the NBC show’s set. Union and Julianne Hough did not have their contracts renewed for the next season of the competition, sparking Union’s complaints about her treatment.

The outpouring of support for Union in the wake of those complaints appears to be gaining momentum.

“Thank you for this @EllenPompeo,” Messing, 51, tweeted Thanksgiving day. “This is disgusting behavior from a network that has been my professional home for decades. Yes, women become ‘difficult,’ when their insistence on a respectful and professional working environment, is ignored.”

Dear Golden Globes, here’s your yearly reminder that ‘Will and Grace’ has never won a single trophy
Will & Grace” is known for its catchphrase “Just Jack,” but when it comes to the Golden Globes it’s more like “Just Jack Squat.”

Since its debut in 1998, NBC’s Best Comedy Series contender about a friendly foursome played by Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally has hauled in 16 Emmy wins and 7 SAG trophies, but not a single Golden Globe. That’s right, after Messing’s loss last year the series is now 0-for-30 with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. With NBC announcing this third season is indeed its last, that means the show has one more chance to earn something — anything — at the Golden Globes.

It wasn’t supposed to go down like this, Will & Grace, and we both know it.

When the beloved NBC hitcom was revived more than a decade after the end of its initial eight-season run, part of its appeal was the reunion of the four friends who are its main characters — and another part was the reunion of the off-screen pals who play them.
