Justin Roberts welcomes the NEW WWE Champion, Daniel Bryan, who comes out to a big pop. Huge YES chants break out, Bryan raises his title which has YES on the side plates. He tells the crowd they are awesome. There’s a lot of things he wants to say right now, but what says it best: “YES!” over and over until Triple H’s music hits.

Hunter says he wants to address the fast count from last night. His victory was tainted, and HHH wants Scott Armstrong to come out. Scott walks down to the ring. Triple H thanks him, and he wants to get to the bottom of it all with a video that show’s Armstrong’s normal count. Now we get footage of the final pin in which Bryan beat Orton. They show the videos side-by-side. He wants Scott to explain.

Armstrong: It was a fast count, I don’t know. Triple H says he is a senior official, how does it just happen? Hunter believes that Scott’s not saying everything. Bryan mouths something to the ref, and Hunter tells Scott to go to the back. He starts to go on and on to Bryan about it, and basically strips the title from him, and no one is the current title holder. It will be investigated further, and HHH wants the belt handed over to him. Hunter thinks Shawn would’ve taught him better. He better hand it over, or it will be taken.

Orton comes out, looking angry. Triple H tells Randy to calm down, there will be no fighting right now. Bryan stares at the title, and contemplates handing it over. Bryan says NO! Orton hits an RKO, and Hunter takes the title. Triple H walks off, while Orton stands above Daniel.

Raw Rebound: Two weeks ago, Orton beat Cody Rhodes and Cody was fired by Triple H. Last week, Orton beat Goldust. If Goldust would have won, Cody would’ve gotten his job back.

Dusty Rhodes makes his way to the ring. Dusty appreciates the warm welcome, but he’s not here as the American Dream tonight. He wants the McMahons to hear him out. Rhodes talks about caring for his children, and finding a way to do it. Enough about him, this is about Cody’s job. What’s good for business is Hunter firing Rhodes? Goldust comes in and steps up to the plate, and takes a big swing. Having two sons you love and are proud of is what’s best for business.

Dusty is not here to beg for Cody’s job, but he wants him to earn it, as he heard there was a business proposal. Stephanie McMahon comes out. That was beautiful, remarkable. Hunter’s decision to fire Cody was weighing down on them. She give Dusty a Bed, Bath, & Beyond coupon. Dusty says let’s cut past the BS and get to the business. Stephanie says WWE would like to offer Cody his job back, OR Goldust gets the job, it’s up to Dusty. Rhodes says he’s not going to make that choice.

Stephanie says Dusty has another choice, be attacked by The Shield, or knocked out by Show. He won’t choose, so she chooses Show. Show won’t do, she calls for The Shield. They grab chairs as Big Show won’t let them do it. He punches him, and catches Dusty. Stephanie and The Shield leave as a medical staff member gets in to check out Dusty.

Randy Orton makes his way to the ring for the next match. The Miz high-fives the crowd.

Randy Orton vs. The Miz

He places the chair on Miz’s head. He hits a big knee drop, and Miz’s mom is crying.

Double Count-Out – (1:32?)

Ryback enters, Axel brings out Heyman in a wheel chair. Heyman introduces himself, and says he’s the best in the world. He pinned CM Punk. Every time he says it, it will be the truth. The record books will forever say Heyman and Punk came face to face in the middle of the ring, and Punk lost. Heyman would love to take credit for his master plan, but there was no back up plan.

Punk gave him the most vicious beating in WWE history. He’s here because one man took initiative. Ladies and gentlemen, Heyman’s here tonight because of Ryback. Heyman owes his life to Ryback. Ryback gets on the mic and says he doesn’t like bullies, Punk’s a bully. As long as Ryback’s around, Punk won’t touch him. Ryback Rules.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Welcome to this week’s Raw Watch Party! I am your co-host Jesse Sherwood, and we have a controversial Raw lined up, stemming off of the heels of Night of Champions last night! Let’s Break it Down!

    1. Daniel Bryan pinned Randy Orton last night to become the NEW WWE Champion! But the match is not without some controversy, as referee Scott Armstrong gave Bryan a fast count! Will the new Champ be stripped of the Title, or will the decision stand?

    2. Steph has called out “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes for a “business proposition”! What will the McMahon family do to the Rhodes Family now?

    3. Paul Heyman pinned CM Punk after taking a massive beating from CM Punk, thanks to his new Heyman Guy, Ryback! How will the muscle headed bully help the Walrus? And what will Punk do now?

    4. Alberto Del Rio retained the WHC after getting himself DQed by refusing to adhere to a rope break! Will RVD get another chance at the Title?

    5. AJ Lee also retained her Divas Title after the ref botched a clear pinfall win by Brie Bella! Will Brie call out the mistake, or is this yet another ref who is incompetent at his job?

    All of this and more will be answered tonight! What are you looking forward to?

    • David Jr.

      I don’t want to see CM Punk vs. Ryback feud again. Why of all people did Ryback have to help Heyman.

      • Tiffany

        Was it just me or did Ryback seemed ‘bored’ when Paul was talking from the wheelchair? He would look to his right and just have a blah look on his face.

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    Hello everyone! As you can see, CJ is writing RAW Live tonight as my interwebs has been a serious issue since it crashed during the Live Blog for Night of Champs. I have to openly thank Jesse, Gesus, and CJ for carrying the Live Blog for me while I was dealing with internet issues – though it was the worst Live Blog we’ve had in years because of how bad NoC was.

    So I will be in and out tonight as I write the RIB and watch RAW as more of a fan than I have in YEARS!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Will be eager to hear more of your opinions tonight!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        So strange that I’m able to give them here. Not sure how I feel about this!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Just roll on and enjoy it! We know we will!

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Thanks. Just feels so strange!

        • Gesus Oliver

          I hope we can have another great Kendra v Gesus disagreement in the view of everyone.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            We have kept most of those quiet, haven’t we?

          • Gesus Oliver

            Yup!

    • Robbie

      *cough* Robbie carried it *cough*

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        *cough* Robbie needs to be slapped around *cough*

        • Robbie

          Not nice to treat the face of the Live Blog and Thread Party like that!

  • Xavier

    Finally back on board after a long vacation. Feels good to be back were I belong lol.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Great to have you back Xavier! Hope you enjoyed your Vacation!

      • Xavier

        Thanks bro, I had a blast

    • Gesus Oliver

      Should we start the welcome back and you still got it chants? lol

      • Xavier

        LMAO definitely. FINALLY! Xavier has comeback to the
        RAW Open Thread Watch Party

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No, because he’ll Jeritroll the crowd! Just boo him now!

        • Xavier

          Lol

        • Gesus Oliver

          I NEVER LOST IT!

  • The Breaker

    First of all, I want to extend my sympathy to anyone who purchased Night of Champions 2013. It was basically a Monday Night RAW episode wrapped in a shiny, gold-colored bow.

    Following the puzzling events of Sunday’s Night of Champions PPV, I’m becoming worried that the New Corporation storyline will jump the shark. So, to me, tonight’s RAW is pivotal to the success of this angle for the weeks and months to come.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Sorry, other than Punk’s match and the main event, it wasn’t even as good as a regular RAW for me.

      • Xavier

        The tag match was a lot of fun. PTP gave a good showing. They are getting more over by the week.

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          I actually missed most of that match, because my internet was down at that point. I was more worried about getting it fixed than the match.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          The highlight of the show was Punk caning Heyman. Up to that point, it was lackluster at best.

      • The Breaker

        We’ve seen some truly horrible RAW episodes though.

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          True, but NoC was possibly the worst PPV of the year, and that’s saying something because there’s been some truly horrendous PPVs prior to MITB this year.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Mania!

          • The Breaker

            I totally agree. It was the worst PPV all year, and that includes TNA.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They should be ashamed of that PPV. 2 matches added the night of the show and a third added the SD Before? That is terrible booking. Not to mention the PPV itself!

  • Danny Philippi

    Hello fellow pro wrestling fans. Nice to join you all for tonight’s Raw. I know this much and that is Cleveland is home to epics in WWE history.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope that is WWE’s plan for tonight, to leave us in utter awe. But after last night, it will kind of feels like a chaser of Dr Pepper after some spoiled Everclear.

    • David Jr.

      Just curious, what great things have happened in Cleveland?

      • Danny Philippi

        Boiler Room Brawl from Summerslam 1996, Austin vs. Kane for the WWE title on Raw 1998, Edge and Christian vs. Hardy Boyz ladder match from No Mercy 1999. Just naming a few.

        • David Jr.

          I know my WWE history, I’m just not good at where they take place. (Wrestlemania being the exception). So thanks for the history lesson.

      • Xavier

        The Elway drive

        • David Jr.

          Jordan’s shot.

        • Danny Philippi

          Red Right 88 in 1981.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    In all honesty last night was a bit underwhelming for me. The Biggest Let Down was Ryback being included as a Heyman guy. They could have gone for anyone, but they had to go with Ryback? Really? The PPV on the whole lacked that stand out moment that would have made it special. Whilst I am glad that DB has the strap I am fully prepared for the fall out for the fast count tonight.

    • The Breaker

      I’m willing to hold back judgement on Ryback. The man is a solid performer and has gotten over before. Giving him Heyman as a mouthpiece is worth trying.

      • Xavier

        He was massively over as a face despite losing on PPV so often. People bring up how fans were chanting GOLDBERG at him but a lot fans were also chanting FEED ME MORE! From what Richard has posted on here in the past he was originally suppose to go over Big Show at WM29 for the WHC. Had that happened he’d still be super over right now probably.

  • savokes

    Wassup peoples…who bets on another HHH 20min promo? Jesse, I know you want some action on this…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I have a cool $100 at 2-1 odds!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Odds for it not happening are 20-1!

        • savokes

          hmmmm, that’s enticing odds

    • Lrgetrout25

      That’s a definite “no bet”.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The way WWE is playing it in the commercial, Ryback saved him of his own accord.

  • savokes

    YES!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      YES!

      • David Jr.

        YES!

        • Gesus Oliver

          YES!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And no showing or mention of the fast count in the opening video!

  • The Breaker

    Thank goodness it’s not Triple H!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      But it will be shortly!

      • The Breaker

        I had the same thought. But enjoy this moment!

  • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

    YES YES YES,

  • savokes

    Anyone get to see his Championship plates?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      YES YES YES in red!

    • savokes

      nvm, theres a good view right there

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Nice Pop For Daniel

  • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

    They gave us our moment. How long before they take it away?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      3 minutes!

      • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

        not even!

  • The Breaker

    He’s losing the title before the night is over.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Be shocked if he doesn’t!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Absolutely. He’s losing it right NOW!

    • Lrgetrout25

      The O/U for me is 5 minutes.

  • savokes

    …….here we go

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Timer started!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        That’s my job!

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          5:41 from when Trip started speaking.

  • Danny Philippi

    Shit just hit the fan!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      SPLAT!

  • Lrgetrout25

    There HHH is…

  • The Breaker

    So I wonder if the Armstrong family relationship with the McMahons will come into play. But they’ve already got the Rhodes family to contend with!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Those were some awkward fed lines to the King.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So we get a footage comparison of Scott’s count? BORING!

    • Gesus Oliver

      You get a count! You get a count! EVERYONE GETS A COUNT!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Of course they have to do this! how else can Trip prove his point. Right off the block you’re attacking the show?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, It is Trips doing it!

    • savokes

      Hearing those same chants right now…BORING!

  • savokes

    geez, just spit it out…HHH fumbling over words here

  • The Breaker

    Armstrong’s count wasn’t any faster than Brian Hebner’s in TNA.

  • David Jr.

    I’m glad Triple H told me which one was which, because I’m not sure what is right and what is left.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    How many times has Triple H said “cadence” (unsure of spelling) already?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      At least 7.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      At least 10!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        And if I was writing this, I know! Arg, this is so strange!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Would you say he’s in a cadence with the word cadence?

  • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

    This is pathetic

  • Jesse Sherwood

    What is Triple H trying to pin this on Bryan? BS!

  • The Breaker

    As usual, Triple H talks the segment into the ground.

  • Lrgetrout25

    There it is.

    • Lrgetrout25

      Damn, just over, 7 minutes.

  • Hayden Tyler

    soooo the title is Vacant?

  • The Breaker

    He couldn’t even hold the title through the segment! lol

  • Robbie

    Am I travelling back in time with Cornette in TNA?

    • Gesus Oliver

      king of the mountain match, please oh please!

      • Robbie

        Clockwork Orange House of Fun match!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          X-Scape match!

          • Robbie

            You know what? Screw it. PUNJABI PRISON MATCH!

          • Gesus Oliver

            Punjabi elevated X X-scape house of fun match!

          • Gesus Oliver

            on a pole.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    At least Orton isn’t champion! But this is all a ploy by Trips!

    • Hayden Tyler

      randy is probably hurt

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He’s in his gear, so probably not.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        Not as far as we know.

      • Dan

        I think he messed up his shoulder. If anyone caught him holding his arm after the RKO

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Well his reign lasted all of what 21 hours? (give or take)

    • Jesse Sherwood

      21 1/2. Sadly!

      • Gesus Oliver

        Atleast he has that half!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    HIT HIM WITH THE BELT AND RUN OUT OF THE ARENA!!!

    • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

      with the belt!

      • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

        that is leave the arena with the belt

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    Trip brought HBK into it! Yes!

  • The Breaker

    He mentioned Shawn. He’s definitely making an appearance at some point.

  • Lrgetrout25

    Let’s see, where’s Linda for the “Board of Directors”?

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      She’s too busy losing political campaigns.

  • savokes

    With so much of the same “phrasology” being used sentence to sentence…gives me the feeling they either re-wrote this right before the beginning of the show, or they’re not confident with it or something…it’s just been off

      As has too much lately.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    HBK has to make an appearance in the next few weeks

  • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

    So much for that

  • Gesus Oliver

    Good for Daniel Bryan, he will right off the bat become a 3 time WWE champ. Do you all feel it diminishes the prestige of the belt?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It does a bit. These sort of short reigns were what hurt the WWE Title during the AE.

      • David Jr.

        Daniel Bryan and Bruno Sammartino are both 2 time champions one held it for 1 day the other 4040 days, so it does.

        • Gesus Oliver

          Damn that is a very good point.

  • Seth Iser

    First time they’ve loudly chanted Randy sucks like that since he turned…at least like that. Well its a start, right?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, WWE has given fans the middle finger yet again tonight. BAKA!

    • Xavier

      Nah not at all actually. Fans gotta let the feud play out all the way before they can claim that.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’m talking the ones in attendance, aka the mostly casual crowd. We know this is going to be beautiful!

  • David Jr.

    So after last year and CM Punk’s 434 day reign as champion, they’re back to playing hot potato with the WWE Championship.

    • Xavier

      Cena had it for 5 or 6 months.

      • David Jr.

        I didn’t forget Cena’s.

  • The Breaker

    Well, I don’t hate the idea of the title being vacated. It’s kind of old school. Though, I’m confused by Triple H’s lack of confidence in Orton during the PPV last night, where he said he had to “prove himself”. Triple H handpicked him to be the face of the company, so why should he have doubts?

  • Danny Philippi

    WWE in fifteen minutes has done as much scoring as the Jacksonville Jaguars so far this season.

  • Cubed56

    After seeing that, I feel creative completely f’d up this storyline, I honestly don’t find it to be at all interesting anymore.

    • Xavier

      Just like you said last night. They pulled the trigger on the title switch too soon. But they are building tension between Triple H & Orton which is interesting

      • Cubed56

        I knew it would diminish the whole storyline, I think it now may turn out to be one of the worst written ones I’ve seen, but ill let it play out a while yet.

  • savokes

    “me-rorse” hahahah

    • Gesus Oliver

      Green tube top?

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        Better than Jenny Jones!

        • Gesus Oliver

          I think they’re both equally as good!

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Ew! I’d watch green tube top all day over that other mess! At least Steph has grown into some class, unlike…

          • Gesus Oliver

            Just sad Mickie was the Miley back then.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            And is only not as bad because of her age and lack of the public caring about her trashiness!

          • Gesus Oliver

            Cut her some slack she is an accomplished country music singer now.

          • Robbie

            People born on the day Mickie was born is all like Miley

          • Gesus Oliver

            Born are all like* learn to right bro! gawd.

          • Robbie

            Sorry! Was twerking whilst typing

          • Gesus Oliver

            Dannggg Twerking? My bad bro. twerktwerktwerk.

          • Robbie

            BLUUUUUUUUURED LIIIIIIINES

          • Gesus Oliver

            it’s in your nature! He’s not ur maker!

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            EW! I’m too old to read this!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            If by accomplished, you mean an autotuned mess that sounds worse than a wet cat in an electrical socket that sells maybe 5000 records, then yes, she is.

          • Gesus Oliver

            precisely!

    • Justin Mayo

      I can’t really make fun of her, since I met her in person and she was a great person to be around, if only for a minute…but that was just funny, plain and simple. I wondered who would catch that!

      • savokes

        That’s pretty cool! Yea, it made me laugh…it was supposed to be so serious, and then we get a “me-rorse”

        • Justin Mayo

          ya, back in 2011 when i was living in CT, they had a discussion panel with some fans about making changes to the website, such as what we liked, what needed changing, etc. she walked in at the end and i got my picture taken with her. great lady, but…-snickers- “merorse”…

  • Robbie

    Stephanie going all in!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Hey-oooo

      • Robbie

        Cheeky

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Go Steph

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Her head spun around at least three times there!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        At least she didn’t spit out pea soup!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Orton getting chewed out by Steph? Shell Yeah! That was great!

    • Dan

      Big Show is gonna be champ by end of night… I’m calling it now

  • The Breaker

    Maybe we do end up seeing a return of the old Orton?

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Looks like it. At this point it looks like the only way he’s going to get anywhere with the fans as a heel.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Yey, a rematch from a match we saw on the ppv. Are we watching TNA?

    • Robbie

      Of course. We already got a vacated title

    • The Breaker

      Dolph needs to go under for the millions to see.

      • Gesus Oliver

        That’s a good point. At the point this match went on everyone already turned off the show!

      • Alain Alfred Corpuz

        AND MILLIONS

    • David Jr.

      TNA has ppvs?

  • Seth Iser

    That facial expression from Dean could be used for so mane memes…..

  • savokes

    I’ve been wondering, how hard (or not) must it be for Rollins to wrestle in full military garb on his torso?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That tac vest moves much better than the Dragon Armor ones used in the military. I bet it is something he had to adjust to, but it probably feels like second nature now.

      • Gesus Oliver

        It’s just really awkward when a smoke grenade goes off mid match.

        • savokes

          hahaha, I see what you did there

        • savokes

          “Ninja Vanish!”

      • savokes

        ahh, “tac vests”…I couldn’t think of the right terminology haha

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I just realized something. Bryan has 2 reigns as WWE Champion, and they total up to less than a day. He is the only person in the history books to have done this.

  • Justin Mayo

    hey guys, am i late to the party? I brought the beer!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Toss them Gesus’ way and give me the hard alcohol!

      • Justin Mayo

        sorry, all out of Jack at the moment

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          We need the hard stuff after last night. In fact, I mentioned breaking out the mead last night… I might just do that tonight since I’m not writing the results. Be interesting to see if there’s a difference in the RIB because of it…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’d pay to see that!

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Don’t have to pay, just read the RIB and pick up my typos for me!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye madam!

          • Justin Mayo

            share some my way!

      • Gesus Oliver

        I’m chugging clam juice OHHH SHELLL YEAHHH!

  • David Jr.

    If you took a drink every time someone says best for business, we’d have some interesting post by the end of the show.

    • Justin Mayo

      and your -hic- guy…weiner…-hic- WINNER…and new…something or other…flying spaggetti monster!!

  • Danny Philippi

    Everyone stay on the Raw chat. I am about to give scoring updates on the football game on ESPN.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      What is this “football” and ESPN you speak of?

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        Jesse, you know I love you, but I’m a much better sports infatuated husband than you are.

      • Danny Philippi

        The game being played in the other “big” city in Ohio.

    • Robbie

      NO! I DON’T WANT ANY SPOILERS

      • Gesus Oliver

        Thank you Robbie!

        • Robbie

          Don’t even like NFL. Doing it to be #heel but because you don’t want them….DANNY I SWEAR IF YOU POST SPOILERS, GESUS WON’T BE HAPPY

      • Danny Philippi

        I will only give the score of the game but not tell you who’s leading. LOL

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Who do you think will be revealed as the mastermind behind Armstrong’s turn?

    • Xavier

      Johnny V lol.

    • Cubed56

      If its anyone but Linda or HBK, the storyline will be shot to hell

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        Linda won’t be back. She wants to play politician now.

        • Cubed56

          Then hopefully it’s HBK. If not i think this storyline went from best thing in years to biggest joke

          • Justin Mayo

            Would love it if HBK faced off with HHH, even with no matches being involved. A “DX to Sell Out” story would be nice

    • savokes

      I think, since they said Armstrong will have to talk to HHH before he can ref tonight, that we will get a “sneak peak” of either HHH/Steph talking to him about doing a good job blaming Bryan

    • The Breaker

      Shane!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It was me! I did it for the Bryan! I did it for the People!

      • Justin Mayo

        No, it was…could it be? MAE YOUNG’S HAND-SON!!!!

  • Austin

    I was hoping to see bryan spit in triple h’s face when handing over the title like orton did years ago but it sadly didnt happen

  • Xavier

    Ambrose/Ziggler hasnt been that good so far. Wasn’t impressed last night either.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Wait Miz is home tonight. I wonder what they have planned for him

  • Danny Philippi

    I hope that this win is a sign of Ziggler getting out of the dog house.

  • The Breaker

    Typical WWE “let’s get the face his comeback win after losing on the PPV”.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    The thing is if they let Ziggler and Ambrose go at it to their full potential, they can deliver quite the match.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So Big Show is meeting with management too? This is going to be a McMahon heavy show…

    • Gesus Oliver

      That better not be a big show weight joke.

  • The Breaker

    Darn it, I wanted to forget about the whole Big Show component to the story!

    • Ashley

      I agree! If he starts to cry, I’m out…

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’ll hug him and he’ll be better, then knock me out for the hug and maybe I’ll be better!

  • savokes

    I can’t help but laugh everytime Dolph sells a move and just makes his body go limp in the most precarious positions

  • David Jr.

    All ready over 200 comments and still have 20 minutes till 9, maybe 1000 tonight??

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Quite possibly!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        I’m in, and chatty, we will make it!

        • Justin Mayo

          -Rob Schneider voice- We can do eet!!

  • savokes

    wow! “Yes Miss McMahon”

  • Jesse Sherwood

    You’re broke! And I am the king of Saudi Arabia!

    • The Breaker

      My ability to suspend disbelief is pretty strained at that….

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      What to Show do?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Punch out management! Start with Maddox and work his way up!

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          On SD? I missed the show.

          • savokes

            He didn’t KO Bryan when told…then Randy turned around into a Bryan knee to end SD as Show walked up the ramp

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Oh, no, I was suggesting. Show was suspended for not punching out Bryan last week on Raw.

    • Justin Mayo

      and if you send me $5000 to get home to my country, half of my immense wealth will be your own!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No, I’m not a Nigerian prince!

        • Justin Mayo

          hey, i’ve seen “offers” from many different country’s. have you no me-rorse!?

    • Gesus Oliver

      I don’t quite get the Big Show is Ric Flair storyline.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Sorry folks, I’m starting to crash. I hope you all enjoy the show. I’m going to bed. Also I feel like Big Show is going to cry so that further validates my decision. Take care everyone.

    • savokes

      Later Gesus…hope you awake in 3 days time…..

    • Robbie

      I can be the sole face of the party. Don’t worry.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Hah, you’re the heel of the party! I’m the face!

        • Robbie

          The fans make me a tweener!

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Sorry, you don’t have any fans!

          • Robbie

            You don’t listen to the WNW Universe!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      NO! We need you! 1000 comments tonight!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        We will make it, don’t worry!

        • Robbie

          If we don’t, we know where to place the blame

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yep! *Gets out kendo stick*

          • Robbie

            Already ahead of you brother.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Yeah, on the heel Robbie!

          • Robbie

            Are you still mad about the WNW Ice Cream bars?

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I will always be mad about the ice cream bars, but I have my mead, so I’m happy now!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Mine was going to be vanilla with cookie dough clusters and a brownie center and a minty outer shell… :’(

          • Robbie

            I didn’t get my respect!

      • David Jr.

        Awesome, I set a goal.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Get some sleep for work. Night Sweetie!

  • Danny Philippi

    Damn I love purple on Summer Rae. Damn I love any color fabric on Summer Rae.

  • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

    My god, they’re making me start to miss Cena

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Well, the last two PPVs were great with Cena, and now that Cena is gone, the PPV blew goats. It’s all because Cena is just so great!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Cena not being there isn’t pushing the rest of the roster to match his energy.

      • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

        There some truth to that. Cena is far better than he is given credit for, it’s the character that needs changing

    • Xavier

      LMAO

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Another NOC Rematch? Fandango vs The Home Town Boy?

  • The Breaker

    Fandango, oh how the mighty have fallen…

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I still just see the local boy in him. I giggle when I see him as this character.

  • Xavier

    JBL JBL JBL JBL JBL JBL JBL JBL JBL JBL JBL!

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    At least it’s not Miz?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Praise the overlords it isn’t!

  • Xavier

    Michael Cole! Michael Cole! Michael Cole! Michael Cole! Michael Cole! Michael Cole! Michael Cole!

  • CJ Blaze

    Really? R-Truth? Oh well, it’s not miz or khali

  • Robbie

    Bring back Awesome Truth!

    • David Jr.

      Not a bad idea, a team to feed to the Shield.

  • Danny Philippi

    Jerry! Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!

  • Xavier

    YOU CAN’T WRESTLE *CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP* YOU CAN’T WRESTLE *CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP*

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You’ve still got it! CLAP CLAP CLAP!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    With R Truth being the poster boy for HIAC does that mean that he is going to get a push of some sort between now and then?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope! Kofi was and he lost at NOC!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bubba Ray chant! That’s a new one!

  • The Breaker

    You want to make me care about R-Truth? Turn him into a heel again.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Amen!

  • WyFo

    Why did Roberts announce Ambrose was still champ?

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      To poke at Ziggy that he couldn’t beat Ambrose when the title was on the line.

  • The Breaker

    Couldn’t they have saved this for Main Event?

  • Danny Philippi

    Right now the fans are heading for the concession stand. And not for sodas and popcorn.

  • Robbie

    The greatest World Heavyweight Champion is there!

    • David Jr.

      I don’t know which was worse pic, Booker T or DX.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Booker, as Flair was snubbed for that mess. Say what you will about his personality, but being a 16 time World Champ earns a certain level of respect.

        • David Jr.

          But DX had like one reign for 57 days.

  • The Breaker

    Business is about to pick up!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Dusty has slimmed down so much over the years that, at times, it is hard for me to recognize him.

    • David Jr.

      Father and son must have helped each other.

      • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

        Great minds think a like

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Dusty has dropped so much that I wonder if he had a gastric bypass.

        • Ashley

          Maybe so. whatever he did, good for him! Much better for his health! Though I want to give him some eye cream for those dark circles…

    • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

      Maybe both Dustin and Dusty did a father-son diet, Dustin looked better last week than we have seen him in a long time

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF score update: 3-0

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “I have wined and dined with kings and queens and I’ve slept in alleys and dined on pork and beans!” Dusty is one of the greatest promo men of all time!

  • Justin Mayo

    Johnny Curtis chants? Guess Fandango isn’t taking off as much as a gimmick, but hey. guess ya can’t cry over spilled milk? :-P

  • Danny Philippi

    Tapping my feet and shaking my head, here comes the American Ttttrrrrrreeeeeeeemm.

  • savokes

    Let’s see if he can teach some of these youngins some good mic work

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Proof that a lisp won’t stop you if you have heart, personality, and charisma! Swags should take note of that!

      • savokes

        BURN! Nice one K

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          Thanks, but so true, and Swags’ ego will NEVER see it!

          • savokes

            Not at all…but let’s face it, he’s too high to care

      • David Jr.

        Dusty has more charisma in his pinky nail then Swagger has in his hole body.

      • Ashley

        Well Kendra, Swags would need at least an ounce of charisma first…

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          That is one thing he doesn’t have, and never will have. I guess that’s why he has to enhance it with his friend Maryjane!

        • Xavier

          And some talent

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Preach Dusty!

  • David Jr.

    Looking at his forehead, how many times has he bladed in his career.
    (9 and over 300 comments)

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      His is bad, but something about Devon’s creeps me out in a bigger way.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sadly, he came from the era where that was necessary.

      • Ashley

        Glad that era is over

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Agreed Ashley. We don’t need color to tell a good story in the ring.

          • Ashley

            DB proves that

      • David Jr.

        Im guessing over 1000 times.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          At least a couple of hundred!

  • BrooksOglesby

    Dusty is still so awesome. This crowd doesn’t deserve this promo.

  • Robbie

    Still prefer her old theme

  • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

    67 and going strong!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Thats how you cut a promo with passion. Great Job Dusty.

    • Xavier

      One of the best in the biz

  • The Breaker

    Bed, Bath & Beyond? lol

  • Robbie

    Cody or Goldy? Oooooooo

  • Ashley

    Oh, nice swerve with the Rhodes storyline

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So one of the Rhodes kids will get a job with Dusty’s decision? That’s a nasty move!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      How to take a screw up backstage and make it into something fabulous!

  • The Breaker

    Dusty choosing one of them over the other sets up for the Cody/ Goldust feud we’ve all been wanting!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Fantastic! We have wanted this for so long!

      • David Jr.

        Cody Rhodes vs. Goldust with Dusty Rhodes as the guest referee.

  • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

    This is cold :)

  • Ashley

    what did Dustin do?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The drugs that he abused and spiraled downward into addiction with.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        Yeah, he has some serious demons, but seems to be doing better than ever right now.

    • David Jr.

      He mentions in it in his Autobiography.

  • Xavier

    Good segment, blows the opening segment out of the water.

  • Justin Mayo

    gotta go for a bit guys, i’ll try to be back in a bit, and if not, you can finish my beer!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I’ve got the mead. Not much for beer.

  • savokes

    NO! NO! NO!

  • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

    It just got colder :D

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Wow. Awesome Segment.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The Shield attacking Dusty? Please let someone from the back save him!

  • savokes

    Who makes the save?

  • Gesus Oliver

    Just wanted to pop back in. This segment is awesome. It woke me up. I miss dusty!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      This is so far the best of the night. Proof that the older names still have so much to give, especially on mic, and over most of the younger ones.

      • David Jr.

        That’s what’s missing in wrestling today.

  • The Breaker

    PTPs will come out to save him.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Nope, she’s going to make Show do it!

      Dang!

  • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

    This segment is Rockin!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the crowd is singing Show’s theme!

    • The Breaker

      I would be too!

  • BrooksOglesby

    This is, far and away, the most effective role Stephanie has ever had. I’m so impressed with her character, and before this angle, I never really cared for her. Really seems more genuinely detestable and less like she’s reading a script.

    • Xavier

      She’s always been a very good heel

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yes, but there is something about how cold and evil she is this time that makes this the far and away best iteration of her on screen persona. It’s too believable.

        • Xavier

          Her & Vince have been described as such in the past, while Linda & Shane have been described as the nicer of the McMahons

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    This opens the door for both Goldust and Cody to come back with full vengeance

  • savokes

    Waterworks in 3…2…1…

    • Ashley

      OMG, u were right

  • Xavier

    Big Show’s tears……TRENDING WORLD WIDE

  • The Breaker

    Big Show dropping an F bomb!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      That was great! Nice to see the PG taking a step back to emotion.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Come on Show! Take them out! START WITH STEPH!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Show’s hug to Dusty tugged at my cold black heart strings! THE FEELS!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      That was really well executed by Show.

  • savokes

    Sold it better than 1/2 the locker room too…

  • The Breaker

    Maybe Big Show’s crying is actually appropriate here. Well done.

    • Xavier

      Agreed, this was a great segment. Much better then the opener

  • BrooksOglesby

    For a second, I thought “Why wouldn’t Big Show just get a job somewhere else, like in TNA?” But then I remembered that he has a family to feed.

    • Ashley

      Lol, that was good

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Massive burn!

  • savokes

    When do you think Big Show will finally crack? or will he join the Corporation down the road?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Man Stephanie has been ruthless tonight. Is she really more masculine than Randy and Triple H? Lol. All jokes aside Stephanie really has been brilliant tonight

    • Xavier

      Agreed

    • savokes

      She’s obviously has no “merorse”…unlike Orton

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I agree. It’s great seeing her so strong, and showing that she is her father’s daughter, but looks so much better in a skirt! Strong, smart, sexy, beautiful – She’s one hell of a woman.

  • CJ Blaze

    I was hoping Rhodes and Goldust would come out and eventually challenge for the tag belts…. but guess not.

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF score update: 7-3

  • Tim

    Yes wwe headquarters im calling to complain on how horrible the storyline about the big show is

    • Jesse Sherwood

      “Sorry, but we don’t accept complaints about storylines.” I kid you not, I have received this email.

      • Tim

        *sigh* may I speak with your supervisor

        • Jesse Sherwood

          “Sorry, but it is company policy. Thank you for your feedback.” That’s the next reply you will get.

      • Ashley

        That is too funny that they say that.

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    Ryder got his TV bonus!

  • The Breaker

    This match is brought to you by… Total Divas!

  • savokes

    Diva’s match…awesome!, I’ve had to pee for like an hour now…

  • David Jr.

    Wouldn’t Tamina make more sense then Alicia Fox and Aksana?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Tamina is still recovering from an injury, from my understanding.

      • David Jr.

        Oh ok.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Looking at Show, Dusty, Trips, Steph, and all of the older names that have been popping up of late, they all have something most of the locker room today sorely lack: the passion for the art of pro wrestling. Most of the current stars reach WWE and look at it as “I’ve made it, now I’ll sit back and collect my paycheck.” If I was HHH, I’d be looking for these guys and replace them.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      We’ve been hoping that Swags would be tossed for how long? But I agree, there’s a number of them who need a wakeup call!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Jesse, I swiped that for the RIB, and possibly more.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Go right ahead sis! That is actually something I have wanted to say for a while!

      • David Jr.

        He’s so right isn’t he.

    • David Jr.

      Anyone on the current roster that does have the art of pro wrestling in your opinion?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That doesn’t have the passion for the industry. There are at least 20 people that are there right now just to collect a paycheck at this point

    • Xavier

      Easier said then done. There aren’t a bunch of Dusty Rhodes just hanging around waiting to get signed

      • Xavier

        LOL, Sandow’s music played by accident

    • Xavier

      Greatness is extremely hard to replace

      • Jesse Sherwood

        There is a clear difference between greatness and what some of these “superstars” produce. There are plenty of hungry and great guys in NXT who can replace the dead weight on the main roster.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        But I agree with Jesse – Too many of these younger guys think they’ve made it to the roster, so they’re all set, and they’re not pushing to improve, or even look like they care when they’re in the ring, or on mic. Short list that pop to my mind are Mahal, ADR, Swags, and even as much as I love Sandow, his matches have been boring and formulaic.

        • David Jr.

          And they’re the people when they get cut go on radio and complain about John Cena.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Tarver! And he was easily the biggest piece of dead weight in Nexus.

        • Xavier

          ADR? ADR incorporates new moves in his matches all the time. He’s had plenty of good matches with Christian, Mysterio, Ziggler & Big Show. He’s also good on the mic for a guy who’s 1st language isn’t English.

          • Ashley

            ADR is a snooze fest!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            But he has 0 passion in himself or his character. Sure, he has solid ring work, but it is formulaic despite the new moves added in because he adds them in at the same point in his match, around the go home.

          • Xavier

            Still say it’s unfair to lump him in with guys like Mahal. That’s extreme.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’ll grant that with Mahal. He is a pure travesty to watch and how he made it to the main roster is beyond me.

          • savokes

            Is it kind of like a Khali deal with Mahal? Because of WWE wanting to be big in other countries?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It is exactly that! Mahal was supposed to be Khali’s replacement!

          • Xavier

            And if Kendra is going to call out people for lacking passion then add Ziggler to that list then. That dude has done more crying & complaining on the internet then actual wrestling the past month or two

    • Anand Vijayakumar

      Totally agree.

  • Ashley

    Wow, on Naomi’s ring gear!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      And she fills it out better than my butt ever would!

      • Ashley

        Her butt is amazing

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          Jaw dropping! And seems like a sweet girl too.

  • The Breaker

    “You might be a title holder but I am a born champion” Nice line delivered by Nattie.

  • Tim

    Which crying face is better the big shows or Marie on breaking bad yesterday

    • savokes

      What is this “Breaking Bad” you speak of?…

      • Tim

        It’s this little show on tv that just so happens to be amazing and had the best episode of tv ever last night

        • savokes

          To tell you the truth, and I will probably be ostracized for this, but I haven’t even seen 1 episode. I didn’t have cable TV for the longest time, and I haven’t been able to start watching it online yet…

          • Xavier

            Don’t feel bad. I’ve never watched an episode of True Blood, Jersey Shore, Breaking Bad, Glee, or played a level of Candy Crush.

          • savokes

            Thanks Xavier, you always know how to cheer me up =)

  • Lrgetrout25

    Theoretical question: If Randy Orton still had the MITB briefcase, could he “cash it in” on the vacant title?

    • Anand Vijayakumar

      I guess not. The contract guarantees you a match against the current champ anytime you want. If there is no current champ, who will you fight??

      WWE of course could defy all logic and say, the guy with the briefcase is the no. 1 contender and award the title to him…

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That could be an interesting scenario for a future MITB winner…

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I am a fan of Damien. I think he needs to get some wins and momentum under his belt before he cashes in the MITB contract. I don’t think it will happen against RVD tonight though. I hope I am wrong.

  • Danny Philippi

    The paring of Rob Van Dam and Ricardo Rodriguez still puzzles the hell out of me. Can’t believe they have lasted this long.

    • Xavier

      It’s not believable

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF score update: 10-3

  • The Breaker

    Sandow’s ring work has been flat lately. He should be turning it up if he wants to have a long reign as WHC!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I’ve been saying this for about two months. He’s coming off like Flair – extremely formulaic in the ring.

      • The Breaker

        Usually comparing someone’s work in the ring to Flair is a good thing. But I agree. Even Orton’s been changing it up lately, but he’s got his top spot and great competition to work with. Not taking anything away from RVD right there, it’s just that you never know when you’re going to get the “Good RVD” or the “Bad RVD”. Last night and tonight, we saw the bad one.

  • The Breaker

    Somebody fire the sound guy!

  • Robbie

    Music Botch!

  • Nostaljack

    Wrong music! LOL!

  • Xavier

    Sandow’s music played by accident lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Production botches and plays Sandow’s music! *Shakes head*

  • savokes

    It’s so crazy how RVD can contort his body in mid-air like that!

  • David Jr.

    What’s Damien Sandow’s record since winning MITB? Has he won a match?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      One match. He is 3-28, I believe, on TV this year.

    • CJ Blaze

      He has at least 2 wins and over 24 losses, I don’t have my papers on me.

  • Nostaljack

    Sandow jobs way too often to be holding that case. He looks beyond weak.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      His matches have also been rather boring. I love Sandy, but have been questioning his MITB win since it happened.

  • CJ Blaze

    What’s with the matches being 2 minutes long?! Hopefully the main events are lengthy.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      CJ – I have looked at the times of matches, averaged them – with and without the main events, and did the same for Impact. RAW’s average match length was really low without the main events that bumped them up in a big way. Impact’s averages barely changed with the addition of the main events. I will pull up the numbers if you’re interested.

      • CJ Blaze

        Interesting.

      • CJ Blaze

        I’m talking about this show in particular show anyways, but if you can post them, go ahead!

  • Danny Philippi

    The Miz vs. Orton tonight is definitely going to be the Miz’s biggest opportunity yet. He danced with an afro last Friday and now this. Homer match.

  • Scooter

    Ive always liked RVD and now I respect him so much more! That was so cool to see how he treated and interacted with the fan that had Downe’s Syndrome!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Ziggy had his arm raised by the same boy. Ziggy was great with him too. So sweet to see.

      • Scooter

        NICE!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So Scott Armstrong is fired?! I hope this is just a temporary storyline thing and there isn’t something going on in his life.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Of course it’s storyline! Has to be.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’m just saying, I hope that Scott is just wrapped up in the storyline and that there isn’t something in his personal life that he is needing time off for. Last thing I want to hear is that his wife or kid is really sick.

        • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

          Scott’s going to come out and say he only did what HHH wanted him to do, that’s why HHH said he would take care of him

    • Kanewty

      Corporate ref perhaps?

  • Nostaljack

    Triple H is brilliant. If you weren’t watching the screen right after Scott walked off, you missed the subtle twitch that made him look every bit the heel he is.

  • Xavier

    Miz is going to get the William Regal treatment

  • The Breaker

    Randy please…. PUNT THE MIZ!!!

    • savokes

      PG?

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      He’s not allowed to punt after he broke Cody’s ‘unbreakable’ face mask. Cody swears the mask saved his life.

      • The Breaker

        Yeah I know. It was just a pipe dream.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Will Road Dogg make an appearance down the road Re The Scott Armstrong Situation

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope so! Get all of DX to confront HHH!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Miz actually got a pop. Wow I am shocked. Then again it is hometown. Lol

  • David Jr.

    A 1000 comment goal seems unreachable now, he aren’t even half way and it’s almost 10.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      We will get there before the end of the year.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hey, it takes time! We are at least on pace to pass the current record! We have jumped up so much since we started these. We only were averaging 250-300 and we now average 500!

      • David Jr.

        It seems like the average of 500 happened when Daniel Bryan was put into the main event.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yep! That should say something.

  • Kanewty

    I know it would never happen, but with this “no wwe champ” thing, I’d like to see an old fashioned 16 person tourney with the final 4 meeting in a single elimination battle royal(pin/submit not over the top rope) match at the ppv. I know it won’t happen but would be kinda cool

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Or an even better one, do a one night 8 man tourney like the King of the Ring for the title.

      • David Jr.

        Know your’re WWE history, they’ll do a 14 man tournament.

        Wrestlemania IV and Survivor Series: Deadly Games were both 14 man tournaments.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          True, but I was thinking with the next PPV being “Battleground” I thought it would work better as a 8 man. That’s 7 matches in one night right there.

          • David Jr.

            I was joking, I hope they wouldn’t do another 14 man tournament. The Wrestlemania IV was a complete mess. The only good thing about it was Randy Savage.

      • Kanewty

        Ok, for the sake of debate, an 8 man tourney for the title, who are your 8 guys in it

  • The Breaker

    Why did they ring the bell for the match to start right then?

    Never mind, I guess it’s not going to start.

    • savokes

      That was a 10 count bell

  • savokes

    Get Miz’s parents a contract…They can sell the facial expressions better than 1/2 the locker room

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Better than their son even!

      • savokes

        HAH! BAZINGA!

      • Robbie

        His mum anyway. She’s selling it brilliantly

        • Xavier

          That’s because women are better at faking

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Everything!

          • Robbie

            ZING

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Can we at least get to 800 comments and get a new record in?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Current record is 742! Lets go people!

  • The Breaker

    Makes sense that Triple H would book Miz against Randy. After all, he was one of the more outspoken people against the Corporation.

    • savokes

      True…or to get Orton some shameless heat by “destroying” the hometown boy

      • The Breaker

        Yep, they wanted to play up sympathy for Miz.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Honestly, probably both!

  • savokes

    No punt, but chair stomp o the head?

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      He is not allowed to punt after what happened to Cody. And he botched the chair anyway.

      • savokes

        Yea, i was just thinking about the logic, or lack there of, regarding chair shots to the head…regardless of swinging or “kneeing”

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    JBL is really going all out heel tonight on commentary. He has been really good

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Orton totally misses the chair! BOTCH!

    • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

      I thought it was just me!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        No, that was a total botch!

        • Nostaljack

          How do you propose he do it then? Contact with the chair = legit injury for Miz.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            He could have at least made it look good. I’m scratching it up to an oops, not an obvious attempt to make it look bad. They learn how to make these things look good, and for me, even the way he set it up looked horrid.

          • Nostaljack

            I respectfully disagree. I thought the setup was sufficiently slow and careless – just like it should have been.

          • Xavier

            Or perhaps the camera was out of place.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            At least land over the chair! He completely missed it and barely touched Miz’s shoulder.

          • Nostaljack

            He’d have hurt Miz any other way.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            If his knees landed beside of the chair and he put his body over the chair, there would have been no risk of injury. I have seen this done on so many other occasions by many other superstars, so Orton did mess it up.

        • Xavier

          How is that a botch? If he landed on the chair he would of really hurt Miz. Are you sure your not a Orton hater?

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I have been saying, so many times that I have been brought back to the Orty side, but as all who like to attack my sense of wrestling because I’m female, you can believe what you wish.

          • Xavier

            I’m not attacking you, nor am I sexist

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Jeeze, I have one little heel moment and people freak!

          • Xavier

            I’m a wrestling fan, what do you expect lol

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Xavier, she gets it all of the time on RIB, thus the defensiveness.

          • Xavier

            That’s understandable

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He completely missed the chair and was nowhere close to it. That alone made it look like a botch.

          • Xavier

            That’s the only way you can really perform that. The camera was just at an angle where it made it look obvious. No need to risk hurting Miz for real

    • Xavier

      Wasn’t a botch, if he lands on the chair he risk really hurting Miz.

  • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

    It would have been better if randy ddt miz’s mom!

  • Robbie

    That’s what happens when Maryse isn’t the at ringside

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    Miz’s mother sells better than Miz!

    • Nostaljack

      I thought this Miz did a very good job of selling. His dad, on the other hand…

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        His Dad looks like Percy’s little brother! I was a bit tweaked watching him.

      • Justin Lal

        Same here.

  • Xavier

    If this RAW has done one thing well it’s that it’s done a great job of really establishing the heels as ruthless & heartless. Just on that alone I’d give this RAW real high marks so far.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I agree, though have to say that coming off NoC, almost anything would look good.

    • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

      You’re right, but the heels are dominating too much we need a face to balance this out.

      • Alex

        Exactly, we can only hope for something big tonight. I’m hoping Cody returns but I’m not sure if it’s too soon or not.

      • Xavier

        I think this show has been booked fine. The top heels were booked like this all the time in 99-00.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I agree. This kind of booking is needed to balance out the super sugary face shows we have had for a while.

  • CJ Blaze

    My longshot prediction I don’t remember if I said it or not was for Tyson Kidd to return and beat Axel to win the IC title… lol. But I do hope he returns soon

    • Alex

      I remember you saying that in the Live Blog last night & I hope you’re right!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I am sorry but I no longer care for Ryback. They dropped the ball on this last night. I know that there will be people that disagree, but honestly I no longer care about Ryback.

    • Nostaljack

      I won’t be one of ‘em. I’m totally with you.

  • The Breaker

    Heyman’s pinned CM Punk, but not Ryback!

  • Nostaljack

    Heyman is so good. LOL!

  • savokes

    Ryback’s addition…*Nods head in agreement*

  • The Breaker

    Ugh, this Goldberg crap needs to die.

    • Nostaljack

      Until Ryback does something credible to change it, it’ll continue. He totally deserves it.

      • Xavier

        Not all Ryback’s fault. He was booked horribly from the word go.

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          But he also ran off script, said horrible things, and can’t hold his own on mic or in the ring. Booking only goes so far when the person behind it doesn’t show the charisma or skills to go with it.

          • Xavier

            The charisma was there, he was over. Fans would chant FEED ME MORE. Was just pushed to fast and wasn’t ready. Never had a chance to really get better before being thrown on the big stage.

          • savokes

            How much of that was the crowd, or the sound being pumped into the arena?

          • Xavier

            It was the live crowd. That’s like saying that YES chants are being pumped in. Both were from the crowd.

          • The Breaker

            We only saw him in squash matches up until the point he was facing CM Punk for the WWE Title. It was too much, too fast and he quite frankly stood no chance in that scenario.

          • Xavier

            Jobbing in every major matchyou’ve had on PPV did him no favors either.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Or Ryback needs a new look/gimmick/clue!

      • David Jr.

        Ryback wishes he was Goldberg.

      • The Breaker

        Ditching the leather vest and jeans would go a long way. I will agree that he’s done nothing to get rid of those chants, but the way he was booked totally destroyed any momentum he had.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Please don’t put Ryback on the mic. No No No

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Well, he doesn’t like a bolly!

  • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

    Oh God he’s talking!

  • savokes

    Hmmm…..Bully talk from Ryback?

    • Nostaljack

      He just did a whole awful bully angle, didn’t he?

      • http://tbrickert.wordpress.com/ TB rickert

        Yes, he did.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      That’s the point, or would be if Ryback could say the word bully.

      • savokes

        Yea what was with that haha

  • Cubed56

    finally back, son had to use the ipad, but damn that was great to finally see the sick sadistic loose cannon side of orton. As far as this segment goes, I don’t think even heyman can save ryback.

    • savokes

      Just don’t let Ryback talk, and have CM Punk try to get everything he can out of Ryback, and MAAAAAAAYBE his gimmick can be salvaged

      • Cubed56

        yea that’s a BIG maybe, heyman can help with the mic, but ryback will only hurt himself with his in ring work.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        I think this is a lesson in futility.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        At this rate, the only way Ryback can be salvaged is to turn him back into a face and let him pander to the crowd. That was the only time he didn’t get overwhelming Goldberg chants, after some time passed.

  • @Funkatastic The Mike McCarthy

    Walked in the room and Heyman’s kissing Ryback…what’s goin on?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We won’t speak of it ever again…

    • savokes

      That’s like walking into the end of a conversation and hearing the words “monkey testicles” and then just having to walk away…I hate it when that happens

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF score update: Tied 10-10 close to halftime

    • Stephen Cash

      Is A.J Green hurt or something? He’s screwing up my fantasy team. Lol

      • savokes

        Can’t get on the same page with Dalton…Missed him on numerous throws along with Green not running the greatest routes

      • Cubed56

        hes on my team too, and no hes not hurt, polamalu is shading over the top of him every play, hard for Dalton to get him the ball.

  • Nostaljack

    Holy recap, Batman. We saw it again!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Paulrus and Heidenback

    • David Jr.

      Did you that on the WWE youtube page, you can see a video that combines Ryback’s and Heidenreich’s themes.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        I definitely will check that out after Raw

      • Jesse Sherwood

        The two biggest failures of Paul Heyman? Yes, please!!!

        • David Jr.
          • Jesse Sherwood

            That is actually pretty awesome, and odd how similar their themes are!

          • David Jr.

            They also have one that combines Randy Orton and Stone Cold’s, plus one that combined Eddie Guerrero, Rey Mysterio, ALberto Del RIo and Primo & Epico’s but they aren’t as good.

  • Nostaljack

    Could the crowd be more dead for this tag-team match?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, they could be really dead. But that would be a travesty.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Still in shock of Heyman kissing Cryback!

  • Cubed56

    Bring back A-Train please, hes so much better then hes getting credit for.

    • Xavier

      Doesn’t matter, Matt Bloom could go out there as Prince Albert, A-Train, Tensai and he’d still be exactly where is now on the card.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        True, but he should be higher. He has the talent, just not the support.

      • Cubed56

        yea more than likely, but maybe he can acknowledge his past and play up to the universe to get them on his side. not saying hes got to be a world champion, but he could have at least one main event run if booked right

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sweet T showed some impressive strength holding Cesaro up! I hope we start seeing more from him, as he is underrated.

    • Cubed56

      I really don’t think brodus is all that good, wouldn’t mind seeing him turn on sweet t just to get sweet t some babyface reactions and getting his feet wet in a small singles storyline against brodus before moving on to better things

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ok, I have to go see Machete Kills based off of that trailer, but I am a sucker for these stupid, B-Rated action flicks!

    • BrooksOglesby

      a solid B+.

    • @Funkatastic The Mike McCarthy

      watching three hours a week makes me hate any commercial they show during the time block. If I see the two dudes in the Sonic parking lot again I’ll lose it.

  • Robbie

    Shoot, we missed the swing

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Its Random Commentators Chant Time

    • Ashley

      Now chanting Randy Savage

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Should have said Random Chant Time Instead lol

  • BrooksOglesby

    When, oh when, are those terrible announcer chants going away?

    • The Breaker

      Everyone’s trying to emulate that crowd from the post-Mania RAW.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        They do it when they’re bored and want to entertain themselves. I don’t see why so many in the IWC are having such an issue with these chants! They did this type of thing back in the AE and no one cared, but now it’s so horrid? Why?

      • Xavier

        That crowd sucked.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Never. When a crowd gets bored, it’s random chant time.

    • Ashley

      I’d rather they did that then chant boring

  • @Funkatastic The Mike McCarthy

    Bad news, Swaggers mom started cutting his hair again

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He needs to go to A-Ry’s mom! She does great haircuts!

  • Xavier

    Solid tag match. The Usos are legit.

  • savokes

    Favorite Uso….GO!

    • Xavier

      I’m jealous of the one dating Naomi so I’ll go with the other one lol.

      • savokes

        hahaha nice

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I couldn’t have said it better myself!

        • David Jr.

          I think that Uso (John) was the best thing about Total Divas.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        I’ll take Rikishi – or at least his voice. He made me melt when I met him!

        • savokes

          I was waiting for a Rikishi vote…well played

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Minus that huge ass, he is one sexy man!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          “Put a little ass on it!”

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1Csfkhe3zc

        • Xavier

          I met him and Ahmed Johnson when I lived in LA back in early 96. They were both down to earth

  • Andrew

    These fans need to shut up. This is a really good tag team match with two young teams and they are chanting “Michael cole, Jerry, and jbl”. If you’re going to do a chant like that at less be original. That was just the fans being ass holes.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      No, it was the fans being bored and entertaining themselves. This is nothing different from the AE, but now it’s so horrible! Why?

      • Andrew

        I don’t understand how the fans were bored! It was a really solid match! At least it was after tons of funk got eliminated

        • Justin Lal

          The Smark fans just want to be noticed since in their normal lives they aren’t.

      • Justin Lal

        The Attitude Era didn’t do shit like this. That Uso/Real Americans match was good and you could clearly here the traditional fans get into it.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Sure they did, and we had this discussion on FB. How’s “We Want Puppies” in every Diva’s match, the “What” chant that was started in the AE, and You Suck every time Angle came out to the ring any different? Oh, and lets not forget the Boring chants ANY time they were bored!

          • Ashley

            I love how people whine about wanting WWE to go back to the AE and then complain when something that is AE-esque happens

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Nothing will make certain fans happy, because they like to be contrarians.

          • Xavier

            I’d say the WHAT chant was started at the very tail end of the Attitude Era if anything, the crwod reaction at Mania was more ECW then anything. I honestly can’t recall when fans acted like that at a WWE event during the attitude era.

          • Justin Lal

            But at least not every AE chant had the stupid clapping. They were way more original back in the AE.

  • savokes

    Hahaha, damaged thorax…of all the interesting “injuries”

  • Cubed56

    Miz’s neck isn’t broken! thank you cole for telling us what we already knew since orton didn’t even hit the chair and the fact miz was moving in the ring after the attack.

  • Nostaljack

    I don’t mean to be jaded but that segment with Brodus reading to the kids looked really contrived.

    • savokes

      Woah there…”jaded” and “contrived”…let’s keep the vocab words at a Ryback level

  • CJ Blaze

    I hate when they have these matches without hyping them, makes it feel meaningless, but the action made up for it. Glads Uso’s staying up in the ranks.

  • Scooter

    So let me get this right….damaged thorax? Wow who knew you could damage someones entire chest cavity by giving a “knee drop on a chair” that is around their neck? Who knew?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Is this going to be Reigns’ first official singles match on TV?

    • Xavier

      Was wondering the same thing actually

  • Robbie

    Where abouts is Kane?

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      He’s off being brainwashed by The Wyatt Family cult.

      • Robbie

        Is he injured? Or has filming for See No Evil already started?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Filming has started, I believe.

    • Xavier

      There’s a good chance that when Kane returns he won’t even feud with the Wyatts. Remember when Henry took him out? He didn’t come after him when he returned, he went after Cena instead

      • Alex

        Yeah, I feel like it’d be a miss opportunity to not have Kane come back brainwashed since we all know Kane could pull the role off but we also know about WWE’s memory loss problems…..

        • Xavier

          Honestly I would like to see the Wyatts feud with someone else actually

          • Alex

            Fair enough.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bray Wyatt preaching on patience? THE IWC NEEDS TO HEAR THIS!!!

  • savokes

    Wow…that was prob the creepiest video to date. I loved it!

  • Mr.V

    Oh the gods gave us Heyman paired with Ryback. Been waiting a long time!!
    That segment was a little weird but I’m totally down for whatever Heyman gives us!
    It was an interesting reasoning for an alignment and his emotional gazes at the guy who saved him was genuine looking. I gotta believe Heyman believes in Ryback. Thats a great thing for us all!! Should be an interesting new “relationship”

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I hope at the very least Daniel does not get beat down at the end of this Raw. He needs to be standing tall tonight at the very least

  • Cubed56

    could bray wyatt be the next undertaker type guy? minus the WM streak of course.

    • Xavier

      It’s possible but I don’t wanna put that type of pressure on Bray so early in his career.

      • Cubed56

        no pressure, I don’t want to compare him to taker in any way other then the creepy vignettes and feeling hes from that dark side so to speak.

        • Xavier

          I agree with you on that aspect. He has the mystic/creepiness to him that’s along the lines of Undertaker.

          • Cubed56

            could you imagine a taker/bray feud? those promos would be amazing, nobody would understand what the hell they are talking about, but your damn sure everyone would watch.

          • Xavier

            Lol true.

    • Alex

      There’s a lot of potential in the character. I’m still on the “wait and see” approach but I do think Bray has a lot of potential, I would like to see more impressive ring work but the character is definitely keeping my interest.

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    I love the hug between Bryan and Brie. It made it all feel that much more real, and tied things up better than just the other superstars cheering him on as he headed for the ring.

  • Xavier

    UNLIKELY SCENARIO but wouldn’t it be interesting if the locker room emptied out to counter act the new corporation. Triple H couldn’t possibly fire everyone.

    • CJ Blaze

      I’m just waiting for Vince to finally appear and put an end to Hunter’s TV reign, just another possible scenario.

      • Robbie

        I just wonder why he keeps getting advertised but doesn’t appear

      • Justin Lal

        This will happen probably early next yr.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I’m thinking it could happen at some point, but it’s still too early in the storyline.

    • @Funkatastic The Mike McCarthy

      only unlikely at this point in time, they could go in that direction when the gimmick comes to an end

    • @Funkatastic The Mike McCarthy

      …well how bout that

  • savokes

    Hey Jesse…are you getting tired of the SHIELD? I haven’t seen you pop on here for them as you used to (meaning you used to write out their name as their intro does)

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sorry, been moderating more tonight than normal. I have my hands full!

      • savokes

        No big! You have a job to do, just get his sorry butt outta here…

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Not any one person. I am just checking on a disqus issue.

  • Justin Lal

    In regards to the Orton/Miz chair spot that wasn’t a botch rather it was protecting Miz. If Orton had landed where some of you wanted him to land it would have severely hurt the Miz.

    • Cubed56

      yo my man, DB is wrestling, shouldn’t you be watching football instead right now? lol

      • Justin Lal

        What a touchdown by the Bengals!!!!!!!!!!!! Like that :)

        • Cubed56

          Ha, that’s more like it!

          • Justin Lal

            That was a sweet screen pass though. 17-10 Bengals.

          • Cubed56

            it was, I was actually watching myself.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            This is wrestling, not football. I’m sure if you’d like to discuss football, you can find someplace to do just that.

          • David Jr.

            What happened to Richard’s NFL site?

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Good question, that might be just the place for Lal, because his bad attitude and attacks are not welcome here.

          • David Jr.

            I recently passed Lal to move into 8th place in most comments on this site.

          • Cubed56

            Its a running joke between myself and Justin, just relax. We were just having a little fun.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Having fun in fine, personal attacks will not be tolerated, and he’s stepped over the line a number of times.

          • Cubed56

            fair enough

          • Justin Lal

            Ever read the posts by others on this site?

          • Ashley

            Just give it a rest and MOVE on!

          • Justin Lal

            I’m moving on.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I completely disagree, but I have quickly learned that trying to discuss anything with you will not amount to anything because you will never see anyone’s side if you don’t agree with them.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Why that was an attack on Miz’s father I’d like to know? But personal attacks will get you blackballed. Last warning.

      • Justin Lal

        Sorry… you opened yourself up.

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          For saying he looks like Percy? How is that opening myself up? He looks like Percy did. If you think Percy was an ugly man, that’s your issue, not mine.

          • Nostaljack

            Flowers, Justin. You owe Kendra flowers… ;)

          • Justin Lal

            No, for calling me out on something not even related to my post. You brought yourself into the conversation.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            This is a chat. If you don’t want to chat – LEAVE!

  • savokes

    I know it’s part of his schtick….but I don’t particularly care for JBL

  • Xavier

    Michael Cole defending Bryan, lol I love it. Maybe he’s the mastermind behind Armstrong

    • Cubed56

      dear god I hope not, that would be the worst creative decision ever.

  • The Breaker

    We all agree it was a fast count! Stop showing the replay!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So we have to Goldman Box the match in the ring to rehash the fast count comparison from the start of the show? Really?

    • savokes

      Right! I don’t think they’ve called more than 2 minutes of the actual match

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Roman is actually holding his own in this match. Thats good.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I’ll admit I’m a bit shocked, but loving it!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Reigns is very talented in his own right. His FCW stuff was great!

        • David Jr.

          He comes from a very talented wrestling family.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye. The Anoi Family produces studs!

          • Navin T. Ramkissoon

            Roman will be a big deal, once they book and manage him properly post- Shield

          • David Jr.

            Arguably the greatest wrestling family of all time.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            And big butts, I cannot lie! Sorry, Rikishi humor, only because I love him.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        I know that Reigns can go but with this being his first official singles match on tv (subject to correction), He has been very good so far

    • The Breaker

      Being in the ring with Bryan helps, though.

  • Nostaljack

    We’re actually getting a match with reasonable length that tells a story…and the crowd’s into it.

  • Xavier

    Good match here, nicely paced.

    • Cubed56

      Agreed, im really liking what reigns is showing here. Hes proving he can go with the best of them.

      • Xavier

        Agreed, I don’t even think this was a carry job either. Reigns held his own here and pulled his half of the weight

        • Cubed56

          No doubt.

  • Nostaljack

    Richard has talked facial reaction often with Ambrose and all three of them are doing an amazing job in that department tonight.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Ambrose is one of the most facially expressive of the superstars, and it makes him so much more fun to watch!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    The Triple Threat Match @FCW between Rollins Ambrose and Reigns (Leakee at the time) was really good. Reigns was awesome in that match

  • The Breaker

    What a bump by Rollins.

  • Scottyo614

    Rollins bump on that table was nasty!

  • Nostaljack

    Am I the only one who thought that Rollins bump looked really awful? He’s still holding his head a lot.

    • Scottyo614

      Concussion has to be a thought

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I really hope not. But everyone knows about me and concussions!

    • Robbie

      I feel the same

  • savokes

    LOCKER ROOM!!!!

  • Xavier

    LMAO I semi called it

  • The Breaker

    Show bonuses for everyone!

    Well, I think most of them already appeared.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    The Revolution has started

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    I was wrong! I thought it was too early for the locker room to clear!

    • Xavier

      I see the future lol

      • savokes

        good 1/2 call!

      • savokes

        Shoulda seen it comin when they showed him being greeted by them all on his way out to the ring

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        I think it’s fantastic, but I really did think it was too early for this to happen.

        • Nostaljack

          Hunter et all will do something truly awful next week that’ll keep this going.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        *Pulls out Sonic Screwdriver* You aren’t a Time Lord by any chance?

        • Xavier

          LOL I wish, I’d be making all kinds of sports bets from games of the past and banking big time if that were the case

          • savokes

            You have the sports almanac from Biff don’t you??

          • Steven

            If only I could upvote this x1000.

  • savokes

    WOW! Listen to that crowd

    • Scottyo614

      3 hours and they end it on a massive YES

  • The Breaker

    Must be cool for Ryder to be out in front of a live RAW crowd again.

  • Xavier

    Nice too see it was guys like Young, Titus, Usos being involved. Those guys are on the come up

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      A little shocked to see Ryder, but maybe his stock is coming back up.

      • Xavier

        I doubt it lol.

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          LOL, true!

  • Stephen Cash

    I love how reigns (with the real possible concussion) was holding up Ambrose and Rollins…

  • Justin Lal

    Props to Xavier for calling the Locker room aiding Daniel Bryan!

  • Cubed56

    well I may be wrong about this storyline. after last night I thought they screwed up, but that ending really adds to everything they’ve done so far.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I still think they screwed up a lot last night!

      • Cubed56

        yes true, but they somewhat salvaged it tonight, just gonna have to let it play out I guess and see where it goes from here.

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          I’m with you. But it wasn’t really this storyline that took the most hits. To me it seemed as if they put more into the WWE Title than almost anything else on NoC. The entire PPV was bad.

          • Navin T. Ramkissoon

            Agreed last night was very under whelming. There was not anything on the PPV that made it a must buy

          • Cubed56

            I agree with you on that.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Are they aiming for a Survivor Series end to this angle rather than Wrestlemania?

  • The Breaker

    I’m not sure what the point was with the whole Scott Armstrong thing, but maybe it’s something that will get revealed further down the road. Tonight’s show wasn’t the strongest, but I’m still intrigued by where things could go. And really, that’s all WWE wants from its viewers, right?

    • Justin Lal

      Triple H and Armstrong are in on it together. His severance package will be nice, and we will see Armstrong later on to screw Daniel Bryan.

      • The Breaker

        If that’s true, then why didn’t the fast count favor Orton?

        • Justin Lal

          It’s probably something like this: Triple H told Armstrong in the event that DB hits his finish do the fast count so “we” have an out.

          • savokes

            That seems illogical to the fan because we know the outcomes are scripted…that to me is circular reasoning

          • Justin Lal

            You have to believe HHH/Armstrong are in on this together. That was a very casual “firing” tonight.

          • savokes

            I’m not disputing them colluding together, I actually said that a few hours ago in a different comment…I was referencing the cause you hypothesized for the quick count

          • Justin Lal

            The “quick count” was something planned by Armstrong and HHH.

          • savokes

            Read what I wrote again…I am agreeing with you on them being in it together…I am saying the illogical part is the “if he hits his finisher, then quick count”…because DB was always meant to win, which means from the get go, the fix was on

            Exactly. The fix was in the whole way. It’s basically a backup plan in the event Orton gets hit by the finisher — do the fast count. This is pretty obvious from watching the backstage segment between HHH/Armstrong. Armstrong (from a storyline standpoint) was probably told: call the match down the middle but if need be, screw him.

          • The Breaker

            So then the goal all along was to have the title vacated if Orton gets hit by the finisher? Triple H’s motives don’t make any sense.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I agree, it doesn’t make any sense, but this is the WWE, so It could be possible, just doesn’t sound at all plausible.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Seth sells like a champ but for once he should not always be the one getting pinned/taking the last finisher.

    • Justin Lal

      Seth might oversell to the point of seriously injuring himself.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      He takes it because he sells it that wonderfully.

  • Cubed56

    I know the payoff should’ve been DB winning the title further down the road, now I feel that something is going to happen in this storyline that nobody saw coming leaving everyone in aww.

    • Justin Lal

      I agree. I see a twist coming in this storyline as well.

      • Cubed56

        All I can say is if that’s the case, the twist better be epic.

        • Wilo

          Lets hope for the best; this better be worth it

        • Xavier

          Cena heel turn when he returns would be the ultimate epic twist. With Bryan being as over as he is, and if he’s able to sustain that then WWE would finally be in a position where they could afford to turn him heel, not saying it’s going to happen but it opens the door for it.

          • Cubed56

            im all for the cena heel turn as I feel he could do some of his best work ever as heel. its always gonna be make a wish that stops that though, and there is nothing wrong with that.

          • Justin Lal

            Cena aligning with Triple H and Orton? This would be the dream of the IWC b/c the heels would be “non IWC” guys and the faces would mostly been “internet darlings.” As long as Cena puts the smarks in their place with his promos I’m all for it.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            You are pigeonholing and ripping on the IWC and ‘smarks’ while you’re part of both groups. I don’t see what you’re really trying to say here.

          • The Breaker

            If Bryan has the title by the time Cena returns, they might turn Bryan heel. Thing is, he would still get cheered anyway. It was face vs face as SummerSlam, so why not WrestleMania?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I think we beat the record guys. What was it previously? 742 comments?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yes it was!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Cubed sets us over the old record! Congrats everyone, and thank you!!!

    • Cubed56

      Hell yea!! Do I receive some type of reward? lol

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Just the good feeling that your comment set us over!

        • Cubed56

          I wouldn’t have it any other way bud.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Great job!

            We will hit 1000 by the end of the year.

          • Robbie

            I would. Demand something.

          • Cubed56

            Lol, nah im not that way bro.

          • Robbie

            Shame. Huge shame.

          • savokes

            You should demand a contract…an IRON CLAD contract, which will inevitably mean nothing and WNW will hope we all forget you have it…

          • Cubed56

            lol, alright ill make demands next week, starting with the iron clad contract and ice cream bars.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            RG already nixed ice cream bars… Said mine was too complicated.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            And he doesn’t like me screaming for huge doses of chocolate once a month.

          • Cubed56

            maybe you shouldn’t scream, a simple please goes a long way, lol.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            She has to scream to get over the WNW Universe!

          • Cubed56

            alright that’s fair, I will do everything in my power to get you your dosage then Kendra.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            So a vanilla ice cream bar with chunks of cookie dough throughout, a brownie center, and a mint chocolate shell!

          • Cubed56

            I think we can get one of those, but only one, just for you.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I want enough for everyone on here! They all deserve it!

          • Cubed56

            You drive a hard bargain sir, but I’ll make it my personal mission to do everything I can to make that happen.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I love that you guys didn’t even touch on the monthly thing. You guys are great!

          • Cubed56

            ill speak with Richard, he owes me from awhile back.

          • Robbie

            Bro. Bro. Bro. Mind if I call you bro? If I ain’t able to bring them, what makes you think you can/

          • Cubed56

            Ive got connections who have connections, that’s why.

          • Robbie

            Dude, do you know who I am? I’M THE WHOLE F’N SHOW! I’m the backbone of these LB and Thread Parties. I own this site and everyone knows it!

          • Cubed56

            If you own it, then why isn’t you couldn’t get the ice cream bars?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Because he was ousted from power by the board of directors.

          • Robbie

            I plan to make the site owner’s life a misery until I get told I’m face again

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Ok, you’re a face, but you are regulated to the midcard for the next 6 months.

          • Robbie

            You’re not creative, thankfully

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No, I’m EVP of Talent Relations.

          • Robbie

            The man in charge of creative is…..*Drumroll* Richard Gray!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Richard is the VKM here. He has final say on everything.

          • Robbie

            And until he arrives and personally tells me that I will turn face, I remain the heel that you all love to hate!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Oh, he approved a face turn months ago. He just said we needed a storyline to build around it. We have that now.

          • Cubed56

            if RG is VKM, consider me SCSA.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Then what am I?

          • Robbie

            Big Johnny!

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Hey, I can complete a sentence, and I don’t ride a skateboard, and I have a much better figure!

          • Cubed56

            I demand Robbie works his way back through the mid card, and we become allies until I turn on him, becoming the ultimate heel.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Deal! He is hereby promised a tag title run, as that ensures the best breakup.

          • Cubed56

            I like it, but I must also be world champ at the time, so our feud is for all the marbles in the end.

          • Cubed56

            lol, you need a new plan bro.

          • Cubed56

            I stand corrected, it worked, well played Robbie.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And he is subject to random Wellness Screenings.

          • Cubed56

            the question is will you actually report them if he fails, or does he get the orton treatment.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Reporting isn’t handled by me, that’s Kendra’s department!

          • Cubed56

            well then he better not fail, she ruthless, she will throw the book at him if he fails.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Remember, weed is a fine!

          • Cubed56

            true, smoke away Robbie.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Just don’t get a DUI. I will ensure you are fired for that!

          • Cubed56

            and please no deficating in duffel bags.

          • Robbie

            WEED THE PEOPLE

          • Cubed56

            that’s where I come in, suit and tie types love a guy like me, they are the least of my concerns.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    It was certainly an eventful Raw tonight guys. Lots to discuss. I had a blast. I am gonna turn in for the night here in little old Trinidad. Have a safe night everyone and talk to you all soon.

    • Nostaljack

      Sleep well, Navin!

  • David F.

    Is just me or is RAW a little refreshing now that Cena is not on the show? Looking forward to next week to see if Triple H and Steph hand out punishments towards the locker room. Maybe Bryan v Orton in a Ladder match at Battleground?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, I want the tourney option discussed earlier. It has been far too long since we had that in a PPV!

      • http://www.facebook.com/WrestlingRoundupRadio Joshua Tucker

        Why not the Championship scramble? That was a fun concept and should have been used more.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          True, and it is unpredictable, but maybe I am a bit old school in the regards that a Tournament would be interesting, especially if they load it up with quality names.

    • Justin Lal

      Xavier…. they are starting the “tournament” discussions again just like the podcast said they always do!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Hey, it was an idea that crossed my mind. Maybe because I grew up with the 80s and 90s WRESTLING product in which that was how a vacant title was decided, but I still like the idea of it. What’s your idea? Oh, wait, all you want to do is criticize anything we put out there. If you want to take a shot at me, then do it.

        • Justin Lal

          Tournaments are always the #1 solution by fans whenever there is controversy surrounding the title. Why do a tournament when you have a set storyline right now with Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan? This is what they should do: Insert Shawn Michaels into the feud and make him the Special Guest Referee for the title match at Battleground (Triple H mentioned HBK tonight during his promo). Then during the match they should have a situation where HBK bumps into Bryan causing Orton to steal the win and the title. It’s pretty simple booking.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Now, that I can agree with. I think there is a good, well built story here for WWE to work off of, and HBK has already laid hints down that he will be back sooner rather than later. However, why not have HHH and HBK be in Orton’s and Bryan’s respective corners? If we are going to go the Special Referee route, let’s make it an interesting turn of the hat: put Big Show there. Have Show cost Bryan and Orton both the title and leave it vacant for a bit longer, setting up for a Triple Threat at Hell in a Cell. Or even have Cody Rhodes in that position (Even though I see Cody vs. Goldust at Battleground.) with the “stipulation” that if he costs Bryan the title, he gets his job back. If Rhodes counts Orton out, it further fuels that storyline whilst continuing Bryan vs. The Corporation as well. This storyline, despite how it seemed to be booked at NOC and the start of this Raw, is still very wide open for possibilities.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wow! Over 800 comments! Congrats on setting the new record tonight, and thanks for all of the support! Goodnight!

    • Robbie

      My pleasure

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        I am going to find something to hold over your head Robbie. I am determined!

        • Robbie

          How about you hold over me that I am THE BEST IN THE WOOOOOORLD?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          He’s face now Kendra! You either have to turn heel, or be nice to him!

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Since when?

          • Robbie

            Since, the board just couldn’t hide the fact they needed to turn me face due to the crowd’s constant cheering

  • Gary Robert

    So much for AJ Lee’s pipe bomb promo a few weeks ago. They’ve followed up with absolutely nothing noteworthy with her.
