Brock and Trip face to face. And a first, RAW start with a Dance-Off between Fandango and Jericho!

Show Starts


After Ryback took out Kane, The Shield came out. Bryan to Kane's rescue, as does Cena. Ryback leaves the ring, but comes back in and takes out Cena with a chair. What will happen tonight. And, Heyman and Brock trashed Trip's office, sending an extreme message to the Game. Trip to the ring and says he's standing in his other office, but unfortunately for Brock, he fights back in this office.


King is in the ring to good pop. At Extreme Rules, Jericho will face Fandango. Fandango in his first WrestleMania, in his first match, managed the impossible. Video of Fandango defeating Jericho at WrestleMania. There's been a lot of animosity since that night. Fandango has been showing off his dance moves, but Jericho is no slouch and was on DWTS. Who is better at tripping the light fantastic. Jericho and Fandango will face off in a Dance-Off tonight on RAW.

King announce Fandango with Summer Rae. SR out in hot pink, Fandango out to join her in all sorts of shimmery colors, his flaming Fandango above the ring. There's a dance floor in the ring, and it's no where near as bouncy as usual.

Jericho is announced with Edyta Sliwinska in quite the skin baring outfit. King says each contestant will have 90 seconds to dance. After both perform, the winners will be chosen by the fans. This is not a popularity contest, judge on their ability and dance moves. Fandango lost a dance contest to Khali a few weeks ago.

Fandango says he was not defeated by that clumsy monstrosity of a man. They didn't know talent. These fans might not like him, but they have to respect his performance as an artist.

Do you think you will beat Jericho?

I don't think, I know I will beat Jericho. As long as there's Jericho, there will be a better man, and his name is Fandango!

King asks Jericho how he responds.

Jericho soaks up the love, then the "Y2J!" chants. This might be be a Dance-Off to kick off, but it's still, Welcome to RAW is Jericho! I've had a lot of impressive victories, but none more impressive than when I beat four other Superstars, King, you included, to become the first Musical Chairs Champ in history! And then I went on to outsmart Bob Barker to be the first Price if Raw Champ in WWE. There's no question that I'm going to win in front of you, and every Jerichaholic here tonight! Even better, this Sunday at Extreme Rules, Fandunghole, I'm going to create a new dance sensation that will sweep the nation. Fans will be jumping out of their seats following along, the song will go to #1 on iTunes, and the dance will be called, I Just Kicked Your Jackass All Over This Ring! This Sunday at Extreme Rules, I'm going to dance all over your face baby, and you never, never, eeeeeevvverrrr, be the same a-gain!

King says there was a coin toss earlier and Fandango with SR starts first.

Fandango's music starts, but neither Fandango or his partner move from their starting pose. He calls for them to cut the music and gets serious heat and big "You suck!" chants! Ssssshhhhh! Hush, hush, hush! I'm trying to create a masterpiece, I need silence! Focus! Fandango poses and his music starts again. A leg taps a bit, then he pulls SR and she drops holding her ankle. He leans down and tells her through clenched teeth to stop messing around. Edyta went to her and Fandango says that this has nothing to do with her. Edyta checks on her and the trainer in. Fandango leaves the ring, but comes back in as Jericho steps toward SR. a big boot to a turning Jericho, then Fandango on him with blows. A big kick to Jericho who rolls from the ring. What's my name? yells Fandango as he slams Jericho on announce. Jericho sent into the stairs shoulder/back first. "You can't dance!" chants. Jericho then into the barricade back first. Fandango takes a piece of the parquet flooring off the ring, then slams it into Jericho's face as Jericho gets to his feet.

Fandango into the ring, pulls SR to her feet, and she bounces up and into his arms with a big smiles as everyone learns she was in on it. They leave the ring together as they replay SR's fake ankle injury, then the attack on Jericho.

That's true, and Vickie gave me the authority to make a decision for Extreme Rules, so since Ziggler can't compete at Extreme Rules...

Zeb and Swagger are out and Zeb, after stumbling over his words, says if Ziggler can't compete at Extreme Rules, then Ziggler should be stripped of the Title and put it on the man who put him down in the first place.

Big E and AJ out. Big E says the Title isn't going anywhere. AJ says that first you kick my boyfriend in his beautiful face, then you try to take the easy way to his Title? Classic Swaggs! For what you did, you should be suspended, not rewarded. You should never get another shot at the Title Swagger! You should be fired Swagger, you should be fired! Teddy, fire him now!

They all start arguing.

Long steps up, shuts them down and says he's going to make himself clear. Ziggler will not be stripped of his WHC. At Extreme Rules Swagger will face ADR in a #1 Contender I Quit Match. Big E will face either Swagger or ADR tonight.

What do you mean or? Who is it?

WWE Extreme Moment

Another recap of Heyman and Brock going to and trashing Trip's office.


Announce Segment

King talking about JR Hogan hunting with HBK tonight. They then go to a video recap of the Dance-Off.

Backstage Segment

Striker asks Jericho if he felt foolish that Fandango and SR got one over on him?

What happened tonight was my fault and the reason is this. I'm trying to play by other people's rules, other people's games. No more laughing, joking, holding up scorecards. I know who Fandango is, I can pronounce his name just fine. But let me tell Fandango who I am. I am a six time World Champion who has done it all, seen it all, and beaten them all, and my name is Chris Jericho! And this Sunday at Extreme Rules, Fandango if you want to dance. I will show you how to dance. I will teach you how to dance, Jericho style. See you Sunday!

In Ring Segment

Trip to the ring. Poses as the cage drops around him.


Brock and I have been at war for a year now. We've bled, bones have been broken, until Sunday when it all gets settled. I said last week this ring is my home. I grew up, learned to be a man, learned to fight here. A man I really respect told me early on that to really be good at this, you have to learn to hate! As the years went by, as the stakes increased, as consequences grew, as things got extreme, I learned to hate and thrive on that hate. Nowhere did I feel more at home than in this ring, and when this ring was surrounded by steel.

Steel that can rip your flesh and break your bones. What I'm trying to say is, Brock you're here, I'm here, they're here (fans), more importantly, the steel is here. I'm at home, why don't you come and try to take it?

Brock's music. Henry stops Brock on the ramp and starts to introduce himself and Brock, but...

Shut your pie hole Heyman! Just shut it. Zip it Tubby Gutman, no one wants to hear it. We know who you are, who he is. Brock, just get your ass in the ring, and let's do this.

Yes, you know who I am, you know who my client is, but do you truly know what we're all about? Because what we're about is those little perverse pleasures in life, like the fact that you were driven to use the word hate. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't hate that big taboo list around here? You're not supposed to use the word hate? A globally branded sports entertainment conglomerate and we're not supposed to use unsophisticated words like hate around here. But I get my perverse pleasure, because you know that you and my client hate each other. This Sunday my client, Brock Lesnar, will treat you the true meaning of the word hate. Brock Lesnar is a true cage fighting carnivore, and you're the biggest slab of meat in the WWE 'Universe'. Sunday, after Brock Lesnar is done with you, you're going to hate facing your family after Brock leaves you beaten, and battered and disfigured in the cage. You're going to hate facing your father-in-law, because you let down the WWE 'Universe'. You're going to hate the fact that one man will emerge, from what you called the war, the winner. One man will have to face that he will go down in history as the loser. And you, Triple H will go down as the loser, and can't imagine how much you will hate that. My client, Brock Lesnar is here on Monday Night RAW and he's ready for a fight! A fight you're going to have to wait until Sunday to experience, because you, as the COO of the WWE know better than anybody else that my client, Brock Lesnar does not fight for free.

Heyman and Brock turn to leave, but Trip tells them to cut the music. I don't know why I didn't see this before, why didn't I see it at the time. I kept asking why Brock didn't just come face me like a man. Why Brock Lesnar, the 320lbs destroyer can't stand face to face with me and fight me like a man. The truth is it has nothing to do with Brock, does it? You can't afford to let him do that, can you Paul? I did the unthinkable in your eyes. At WrestleMania I knocked Brock Lesnar out cold, and Paul, I beat him. And you know if Brock walks down that ramp right now, and steps into this cage, and maybe, just maybe, I kick his ass one more time... That doesn't bode too well for you, does it Heyman. If this Sunday if Brock steps in this cage and I beat him, again, then the sound you will hear at the moment won't just be the roar of the crowd, but also Brock Lesnar's mystique flying out that window, along with your meal ticket. See I can look at Brock and tell that Brock Lesnar still believes he's the baddest man standing in this room. The problem is Paul, you don't that's true anymore, do ya? That's why, as of this moment, I'm no longer talking to you Paul, I'm talking to you Brock.

What are you going to do Brock? Are you going to walk down that aisle, and get into this ring, and try to prove to the world that you are Brock Lesnar the Beast, or you just going to stand up there and do what Paul Heyman tells you what to do, and prove that you are Brock Lesnar, the Bitch!

Heyman talks to Brock, telling Brock to not listen to him – off mic – but Brock lightly pushes Heyman aside and walks down the ramp. Heyman tells him it's not worth it. The door is open, Trip can be seen in there, and the refs tell Brock not to do it. Brock climbs the stairs slowly, looks in at Trip. Top step, then Brock steps onto the apron. One leg in. The other leg in. Brock is fully in the ring.

The two step up, about three feet between them. They start fighting. Shoulder blocks on Trip in a corner, then Trip comes back. Brock grabs Trip and throws him in a way too hard German. Then Brock struggles to take his shirt off. Brock rushes Trip, but Trip sends Brock head first into the cage. Blows to Brock, then Trip grabs Brock and throws him into the door. Heyman, on the outside, is sent flying. Brock rolls out and crumbles to the floor. Trip up on the ropes, looking down at Brock, yells at Brock to get in there. Brock looks a bit unnerved. Brock to his feet, gathers up Heyman, and drags him up the ramp.

Trip's music plays as he climbs and sits at the top of the cage. Brock and Heyman stop on the stage and look back at Trip.

Biggest pop
Triple H

Biggest heat
The Shield

Thanks for reading,

  • hey all

  • Hi everyone, sorry this was late and screwy! I think we’re playing with paste now!

  • What do you all expect from tonight’s show?

  • On a small, slightly unrelated note….Let’s Go Caps!

  • I expect more blah from Brock and his feud with Trip, but I think Jericho and Fandango will be fun. I hope they set up a bit match for The Shield.

  • Lets hope we get a good go home Raw to Extreme Rules

  • I don’t know if its just me but with last weeks angle I think Triple H will walk out with the win at Extreme Rules

  • Lesnar has to win to validate his returning I think

    • Agreed. If Lesnar goes under, there is no point to him being around anymore. His value will plummet.

      • Lesnar needs the win I agree but I think Triple H is gonna walk away with it

      • He shouldn’t have lost his first match to Cena. That was the biggest buzz kill in the history of returns.. How would you take a man seriously who has lost 2 of his 3 big fights and has done nothing more than putting a 60 year old guy in a F5 and destroying a cheap make-a-do office when the guy who sits in that office was hundreds of miles away. The feud is going nowhere and I seriously hope Lesnar destroys Triple H to bring back some credibility to him being a bad ass threat.. If he loses this match, they would rather cancel his contract and let him go home…

    • Xavier


    • Agreed but hes been dominanant in all his matches so far

  • So now we also have Fandango vs. Y2J at Extreme Rules!

  • Is it a good sign that they are starting off with the dance off?

  • Ugh, please remove Summer Rae from my TV!

  • Cubed56

    This is the most ridiculous opening to raw I’ve ver seen.

  • Kleck

    Fandango and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamshirt.

  • I like Fandango’s outfit. It reminds me of a tackier macho Man outfit!

  • Jericho’s partner is gorgeous

  • Hot crowd tonight!

  • Ummmmmmmm…..

  • Love the sign in the crowd! “Go Fandango yourself!”

  • Kleck

    So which beauty has the faker tan Edyta Sliwinska or Summer Rae?

  • Summer Rae’s immediate face turn

  • So we have a dance off, thats not going to come off?

  • That had to have sounded better on paper than in execution…Jericho’s mini promo was the lone bright spot…the semi non-selling by Summer Rae being the worst

    • Summer Rae is a model in a Diva’s position, and while her match with Paige 2 weeks ago on NXT was pretty good, I think she isn’t ready for this level yet.

  • During the replay she clearly made no attempt to sell that she “sprained her ankle” besides the groveling in the corner lol

  • With The Shield taking their first clean loss in the house show this weekend, I wonder if that spells trouble for them tonight. I don’t mind them losing to Team Hell No at the PPV, but please don’t let them lose to a team with Cena in it

    • Early dissention within the team?

      • Team Hell No beat them at a Live Event this past weekend. Whilst I don’t mind them losing at the PPV to Team Hell No. I do hope they win tonight

    • Danny_Boy

      I hope it gets down to just Cena vs The Shield, so Cena can eliminate all three of them by himself

      • Cena does not need that. A loss to Team Hell No won’t hurt The Shield’s credibility so much, but you can never tell which way it will go once a stable suffers a loss to Cena

        • Danny_Boy

          A lose to Cena won’t hurt them in the least. A lost to a corny tag team would kill any momentum that the Shield has built.

          • How exactly has THN been corny during the feud with The Shield so far, they have been good, cut down on the comedy and we have gotten some good matches in their feud. I can see Team Hell No barely retaining the belts at Extreme Rules and The Shield getting Payback at Payback. The Shield has had a great run so far, but a loss to Cena won’t do anything for him, and will hurt the Shield

          • Danny_Boy

            Are you kidding. How does a lose to the top guy in the company hurt them? Team Hell No is beyond corny, a lose to them would kill the Shield. Just take a look at the Prime Time Players or the Road Scholars. they haven’t done anything since losing to Team Hell No

          • And what will Cena have to gain by beating the Shield? Nothing. Cena gains nothing from beating The Shield. It will just be a cheap notch on his belt

          • Danny_Boy

            What does a lose to Team Hell No do for the Shield? Besides completely make them Irreverent

          • One loss to someone other than Cena won’t make them irrelevant. Cena does not need a cheap notch on his belt. And Team Hell No beat The Shield Clean this weekend so it is not as far fetched as you may think

          • Danny_Boy

            See what I mean. Another lose for one half of the road scholars. Losing to Team Hell No = Buried & Irreverent

          • If Undertaker couldnt beat them in a tag team, then sure as hell Cena shouldnt be allowed to beat them cleanly..

            Thankfully the win was by DQ, so am fine.

            Cena still managed to beat one member of the shield cleanly using his AA which is more than enough. Anything more would’ve damaged the shields credibility as a threat to the tag team or the US titles in the upcoming pay per view

        • The win two weeks ago concerns me more.

          • How so?

          • The last time someone pinned Can clean on Raw was when Tensai beat him prior to Extreme Rules last year, and look where he went. If history is any indicator, then The Shield has 2 months at maximum left.

      • Looks like you called it! Cena wins by DQ.

      • Remember the Nexus from a few years back? It was the hottest group in the WWE with Wade Barret on top. One loss to Cena and the group was practically destroyed.

        Hopefully WWE wont repeat the mistake – at least not on free television

        • Danny_Boy

          WRONG: Nexus starting sucking wants CM Sucks became the leader of the group. Cena lost alot too Nexus and made that group look credible. Try again.

          • Danny Boy – Pls get your facts straight before you comment on whether Cena made the group look credible…


            June 2010 – Nexus come into the WWE and starts attacking top stars

            July 2010 – They start feuding with Cena

            Hell in a Cell 2010 – Cena joins Nexus (He did not lose the match cleanly so, he added no credibility to the group)

            October 2010 – Cena declares that he is going to destroy Nexus from within

            November 2010 – Cena gets fired from the Nexus because he did not help Barret defeat Orton

            After Survivor Series – Cena destroyed the entire nexus one by one and then forced Barret to agree to a charis match

            December 2010 – cena defeats Barrett and effectively ends Nexus.

            The groups entire Run lasted 6 months and they had not one high profile win. Because, Cena got involved, he did not lose any match cleanly and destroyed the group entirely.

            PS: I am not a Cena hater. I just felt that they should not have destroyed the groups momentum by having them get destroyed by Cena.

          • Danny_Boy

            PS: Don’t say your not a Cena Hater to try to make your lame argument look credible because you are a Cena Hater clearly. Nexus was over in the 6 months they feuded with Cena. Then Punk joins the group and they FLAT LINED. Cena is the freaking face of the company, he’s not suppose to lose matches clean to guys who have barely been in the company. Tell me one thing of significance that Nexus did when Punk was there.

          • Danny Boy – Tell me one thing of significance Nexus did in the 6 months they feuded with Cena??

            The group was practically destroyed even before CM Punk joined them. So, dont pull this punk flat lined Nexus. Nexus was in intensive care when Punk took over as the lead but couldn’t do much…

            Cena is the face of the company – I dont deny that, but if the company wants any more top stars, they must not let Cena defeat/destroy up and coming super stars without a proper feud.

  • Thanks for coming Zack!

  • I got it! Cena and T. H. N. eliminate Reigns and Rollins, and Ambrose eliminates Cena and Kane then Ambrose utterly destroys D. Bry cause Reigns and Rollins sneak in through the crowd perfect match scenario

  • Not good for Ziggler…..


  • AJ hitting the voice of the WWE Universe on the head!

  • Xavier

    I agree with AJ, Swagger should be fired.

    • Same here, I said the same in this week’s Breakdown.

      • Xavier

        He adds absolutely nothing to the roster. Average worker, horrible mic skills, screw up outside the ring, very careless as a worker, and has a bad attitude in the locker room. He’s fat that needs to be trimmed

      • Moe

        I honestly couldn’t care if AJ was fired as well.

        • I beg to differ on that point Cubed, as she has one of the biggest personalities in the Divas Division right now and is one of the better workers as well.

          • Not to mention the thin roster depth in the divas division and there is absolutely nobody with charisma or charm in the division. AJ is the best of the worst and firing her would make things even worse for the WWE Divas division

    • Hannibal Lector

      You spelt ‘Del Rio’ incorrectly. Swagger has been a lot better recently with his fits of rage. Judging him in a heel vs heel match on Raw is ridiculous.

      • Xavier

        I’m judging him based off his entire career. He hasn’t had a single great match or cut a good promo in the 5 years he’s been with the company. His “We The People” gimmick is losing steam by the minute. He can’t keep his noise clean outside of the ring. His single title run was a flop and didn’t draw well at all. He’s injured two guys in the last couple weeks being careless. He has a history of attitude problems backstage. I can name about 30 guys on the roster who deserve too be pushed over him. Swagger is big, and that’s about the only thing he’s ever had going for him. Swagger is a lower midcard talent who’s getting a main event push for whatever reason.

        • Hannibal Lector

          No worse than Del Rio who is also part of the same push. How can you mention one and not the other? I’m not saying Swagger is good; he isn’t. But he has been tolerable in these last few weeks which is a step up. Although I think neither should be near the ME scene I’d rather see Jack Swagger on my screen than Del Blando.

          • Xavier

            I’ll take Del Rio over Swagger everyday of the week. While I also don’t think Del Rio is a true main eventer he’s still better in the ring and much better on the mic then Swagger is. And unlike Swagger, Del Rio doesn’t get into trouble with the law nor does he have a attitude problem backstage. Del Rio > Swagger

  • Ambrose vs. Kofi for the US Title is now official!

  • Cubed56

    Hopefully now they add reigns and Rollins v THN for ER too, and the Sheild comes out full of gold.

    • In a perfect world……

      • It’ll happen. They still have at least 1 more match to announce, and the IC Title is all but forgotten.

        • With Barrett losing to either Sheamus or Orton every week in Raw and Smackdown, who cares if he holds a title or not? The title has become more of a prop these days. WWE needs to start treating its midcard champs with respect. Else, the next generation of main-eventers will be nothing but glorified jobbers who lost every one of their matches in the past…

          • Anand, I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been harping on rebuilding the prestige of the midcard titles for months now, but until WWE see the problem of how Creative is booking the belts, then nothing will ever change.

  • First Rhodes on Smackdown, now Sandow jobs to Kofi. Baka, why are they burying good talent?

    • Smart Mark

      Jesse, im confused. When Cesaro was US Champion you were angry that they kept burying him and that it made the title less prestigious. But now Kofi is Champion and winning matches but your still not satisfied?

      • No, I don’t like the fact that they are using people such as Rhodes and Sandow to repair the damage that Kofi’s loss to Ambrose caused last week. I am all for letting Kofi win some matches to help rebuild the US Title, just use someone else such as Titus O’Niel and Darren Young, Hunico and Camacho, or bring back McGillicutty and Big Zeke for the job, not a rising star.

  • Mark Henry next….ehh

  • Cesaro vs. Orton, Can I hope that Show will interfere to help Cesaro win?

    • Cubed56

      I want Cesaro to get his push again, but if he is gonna lose to someone, I don’t mind it being Orton as i feel that Orton is on his way back into the main event picture. Hopefully Cesaro won’t be far behind him though.

      • Orton’s pop has returned, but I still don’t feel that he is deserving of the spot again. His in ring work and promos have been very lacking in substance lately.

        • Cubed56

          Agree to an extent, promos have never been his strong suit, but his in ring work has been getting better again in my opinion.

          • When he was in the height of his heel his promos were much better than now. But it feels like he has been phoning it in for a while now. Especially Friday night.

          • Cubed56

            Good point, ill give out that, all the more reason for his heel turn.

  • “Cesaro is taking Rosetta Stone to learn donkey so he can talk to Michael Cole!” JBL wins again!

  • Xavier

    Like I said last week, don’t get excited about Cesaro beating Ryder.

    • Eh, it is just against Orton. We all know Orton doesn’t lose on TV clean very often.

    • Cubed56

      Gotta give you props, you did call it. However like i said to Jesse, him losing to Orton isn’t a bad thing, as its becoming obvious that Orton is on his way back to the main event picture.

      • Xavier

        I hope so. The second Vince gives Orton the green light to turn heel he’ll go back to being the #2 guy on the roster. Orton is the best heel they have on the roster. He’s heel runs in 03-04 & again from 07-09 were pretty freaking epic.

        • Cubed56

          Agree he is 100x better as a heel.

  • Ok, I want Miz’s new shirt! Considering my own family, I’d wear it to the reunion!

  • Ok, WWE is pushing the App for all of these exclusive interviews, but I know that I have enough trouble chatting here and keeping my eyes on the action! Trying to watch 2 screens would be too much!

  • I’ve noticed that Alicia Fox is doing a lot of the Diva’s charity outreach. I think that is excellent, and imagine that she is volunteering for it. If so, then she has my eternal respect.

  • Cubed56

    I’m not saying this as a fact, but I think we are gonna an idea of the pecking order amongst the shield members as singles competitors by who gets eliminated in what order.

  • And now the Tornado Tag Team Match for the Tag Titles is official! I called a Tornado Match 5 weeks ago when The Shield attempted to attack Taker, just not for the Titles!

    • Cubed56

      I think the shield will suffer their first loss here, to make them look vulnerable and some doubt amongst them, just so they can bounce back and be dominate at ER and come out clattered with gold.

  • I am seriously getting bored seeing the same matches again and again. Orton vs Cesaro is probably the 100th time this year and everytime you know Orton is gonna win. Why have the match in the first place. Use Cesaro in the US or IC Title picture and not for jobbing to Orton every single week…

  • Cubed56

    Damn! Daniel Bryan is absolutely incredible!

    • I’ve had the pleasure of watching him over the last 10 years, and he is probably the single greatest pure wrestler in WWE today.

      • Cubed56

        Usual I’ve got some sort of counterpoint or opinion, but in this case, I absolutely agree 100%, there is nobody close to him.

    • I think he needs to pursue the WHC and have a feud with Ziggler after this. He & Kane lose to Shield and Extreme rules and lose the rematch in the next ppv. Ziggler recovers and defeats the winner of del rio vs swagger in the next ppv and then – Ziggler vs Bryan for WHC. That would be an amazing feud.. Wouldnt it?

  • Super Cena? No No No No

  • Xavier

    Cena is gonna get the Bam Bam treatment here. He’ll eliminate 2 members of The Shield before going down swinging

  • Xavier

    Great 6 man tag match. Bryan MVP of the match

    • Cubed56

      No doubt

  • Darth Watchdog

    Daniel Bryan was the highlight of this match.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Way to make Kane, Bryan and The Shield look weak. Thank you, WWE.

  • Cubed56

    Well I called the loss, however it wasn’t clean, so I think they are more than ok, and will all be wearing gold after Sunday.

  • Who is it that keeps saying O’Doyle Rules here? There’s a sign of it in the crowd!

    • Cubed56

      That’s me, I knew it was only a matter of time before the rest of the wwe universe caught on.

      • I thought so Cubed! Congrats on the trend, but how do we know it isn’t you in the crowd…

        • Cubed56

          Lol, I can assure you that its not me in the crowd. If I’m ever in a wwe crowd and sitting where my sign is visible, ill make sure you know it’s me.

    • I believe I started it on here but I only said it once

  • Well I am officially pissed. I hope this brings out a meaner side of The Shield this Sunday. The Shield for all the gold

  • Cubed56

    Does anybody think this is wwe’s way of trying to restore some meaning to the us and tag belts by possibly putting them on the shield at ER who are more then over?This may be a way to get some meaningful feuds for those tiles once again.

    • One can only hope Cubed. But in order to do so, they need to have the Shield hold the titles for at least 6 months.

      • Cubed56

        Well if Bryan and Kane have held them this long, and cesaro held the us title for how long, there is no reason to believe the shield can’t hold those belts for at least that long or longer and hopefully creative can hold up there end for once and put some meaning into them.

        • I agree, but we also have to take into consideration how the viewers are going to react to the Shield in 6-9 months. By then, viewer fatigue may be setting in.

          • Cubed56

            Very true

    • Xavier

      Yes & No. Vince has a habit of trying to make titles prestiges by placing them on certain guys, like with the tag titles with Jeri-Show in 09, but Vince also has a habit of neglecting the importance of them as well at times. So this will be more of the same. Look for The Shield to make the tag & US titles a big deal with long title reigns, but don’t be surprised if those titles take a backseat once they lose them. The importance of mid-card titles is like the stock market in a way, their stock fluctuates.

      • That is a great way to analyze it Xavier, and one that I hadn’t thought of. Very interesting!

      • Cubed56

        Excellent point. But hey at least they will be relevant again if only for the time the shield holds them. This will also be a way to get other superstars noticed by going against the shield in a meaningful feud for a meaningful title.

        • Xavier

          Agreed. I hope whoever beats The Shield for the titles (US/Tag) gets pushed as well. The Shield have been booked to look unstoppable with wins over most of the top guys on the roster in 3 on 3, 2 on 2 matches so whoever finally beats them should get a major push out of that (hopefully the Usos)

          • Cubed56

            Agreed. Like the idea of the usos, possibly prime time players as well. As far as the us title, possibly a way to get a guy like Sandow or Rhodes going in the right direction.

    • I sure hope so… Last year when Kane and D Bryan won the tag titles, Cesaro won the US title and Barrett won the IC title, there was a shortlived revival. Emphasis on shortlived.

      Withink weeks, the no.1 contenders and every other top tag team was losing every week to kane and bryan. So, good bye tag team division.

      Cesaro and Barrett have lost 90% or more of their matches in Raw and Smackdown. So, bye bye IC and US titles.

      The shield is promising and I sure hope the revival has a lasting run and we get top quality main event talent in the 3 members of the shield who have shown tremendous promise…

  • Anyone else notice the mike on the steps?

  • Xavier

    This isn’t a knock on Del Rio but he just doesn’t appear to be very OVER outside of the West Coast.

    • I’ve noticed the same thing. Ricardo gets a much bigger pop than ADR, and it isn’t just a face turn problem. He wasn’t getting much of a reaction as a heel, either.

      • Xavier

        Agreed. I understand McMahon wanting too push ADR b/c of the large Latino demographic following that the show has but it’s just not clicking. Outside the West Coast (Cali, Nevada, Arizona) the reaction just isn’t there. He’s a solid to good worker with decent mic skills but he lacks the charmisa, workrate and the ability to connect with the fans like guys like Eddie Guerrero & Rey Mysterio did. He has a place on the roster but it’s just not as a main stay in the main event though.

    • Cubed56

      I agree, I think it’s the fact that he’s solid, but there’s nothing that sets him apart from anyone, and he doesn’t have anything that he can call his own, like a catchphrase that fans gravitate to.

  • mr.v

    This show suuuuuuuucks

    • Xavier

      Can’t have it both ways bro. People complained about Cena always opening & closing the show and this week everybody got their wish so please tell me why you think the show sucks this week?

      • Mr.V

        I dunno … Just boring. I’m not the usual Cena hater but Rollins first loss is …aw to Cena no one cares. Cena goes over the entire shield why? Cesaro looses to Orton again? Ryback is wooden again omg they changed his moooooooooore entrance? Ugh why? Man I’m not a smark I’m a wrestling snob a lot of tonight was very lame and flat.

        • Xavier

          Cena didn’t really go over. He won by DQ and received a massive beat down after the match.

          Orton has a match coming up with the Big Show at Extreme Rules and Cesaro isnt in any feud at the moment so it would make no sense for Cesaro to beat Orton on a go home show headed into the PPV.

          • Mr.V

            Yeah the go home show … But still, it was meaningless. I actually forgot who Orton had a match against the feud is that forgettable.Ambrose was about to tap before the disqualification so I felt this was an unneeded weakening when if Kofi had been in the match like would have made sense since his title is soon to be lost … If HE pinned Rollins that would have been huge and cast doubt on Ambroses chances of taking the belt. Right now there is no reason to think otherwise

    • It has been a bit of a rough night. What is making it “suck” for you this week?

  • Scott

    OK EVERYONE NOW IS THE TIME TO GIVE THE WWE A NEW TREND TO FOLLOW!!! People across the nation start chanting “O’Doyle Rules!!!!” everytime Ryback comes out! Maybe thatll get him to stop using that stupid f$cking catchphrase!

    • Cubed56

      I’ve been saying O’Doyle Rules on here for a couple weeks every time he said it. I was surprised it took the universe this long to figure out it was a rip off from Billy Madison. However, it was pointed out to me that there is a sign in the crowd tonight that says O’Doyle Rules! That wold be awesome if crowds started chanting that though.

  • Did ryback make Kane turn into a monster again. By saying what he said last week. I hope so.

  • WWE Extreme Moment: Another recap of Heyman and Brock going to and trashing Trip’s office.

    What is extreme in Lesnar breaking down a few chairs and an office using a sledge hammer?? I could’ve done it too…

  • Xavier

    Paul Heyman is great on the mic, but some times they over do it with him. It’s not necessary to come out every week and ramble about 5-10 minutes at a time. And tonight is one of those times where it’s not needed.

    • Agreed hes probably the best on the mic ive ever seen

  • Jesse Just showed me this! I guess I am way behind. No fear, If I am back from St Louis in time monday, I will be here. Gesus will make his triumphant debut to WNW Watch Party. Consider this a vignette!

    • We also do one for TNA, the Smackdown Spoilers that I don’t go to, and for the telecast of Smackdown.

  • BlackMotor687

    Love the Wigan vs Man City reference from JBL!

  • Nick K

    Listening to Jerry Lawler trying to spin the swagger poll win was the highlight of the night

  • I know im probably wrong but could nattie vs aj being the main event be a good sign that the divas will be pushed? Id love to see more of nattie better that most of the make roster
