  • David Jr.

    Good Evening.

  • gurl bye

    yaaasss

  • Splat

    You ready to Bolieve?

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

    I was just sitting here trying to figure out what might be on TV next. Head-desk!

    • David Jr.

      Head-desk?

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

        Slam my head into the desk for my sheer lack of a clue.

        • David Jr.

          Ok

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

            Many people use face-palm, but this is wrestling, so I needed to be more abusive. Though I think SyFy should be abused for some of the movies they’ve been showing lately!

          • David Jr.

            You don’t like Piranhas? Doc Brown is in it.

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

            It just seems as though they’ve been playing all these big gator, fish, snake movies like crazy lately. All I saw was him saying they were babies, then the guy getting taken off the boat the way a barracuda will down in the Florida Keys.

          • David Jr.

            My brother told me, he saw that movie. I would never watch it.

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

            I only saw as I turned channels. Though I saw a chunk out of a friend’s shoulder when a barracuda jumped over the back of her boat and took a piece of her with him.

          • David Jr.

            I think it was suppose to be a Piranha, not a barracuda.

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

            I know, just stating that I know cudas can take out chunks, and jump that way.

    Here we go, will HH screw up?

  • David Jr.

    I vote to get rid of the Star Spangled Banner and make Real American the national anthem, Who from the USA is with me?

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

      Easier to sing!

      I sent you a DM on Twit. Or, WWENews did. Something I don’t want out, other than to the writers.

      • David Jr.

        I get more American pride when I hear it too.
        I got the dm.

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

          I do too, but is it because we’re wrestling fans?

          • David Jr.

            Maybe, but Obama used it once, Maybe he’s a wrestling fan, I don’t know.

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

            I’d be shocked if he didn’t have a bit of wrestling fan in him.

  • David Jr.

    How come the only one from Evolution who fights now is Batista? I get why Triple H doesn’t, but has Randy Orton had a match since Extreme Rules?

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

      Do we care what Orty is doing? Then again, I’d rather have Orty in the ring than Boo-tista.

      • David Jr.

        Of the three, I’d rather watch Triple H, but I know he’s not a full time guy anymore.

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

          He really seems to be struggling more than ever. Yes, it’s how they’re booking him, and I’d prefer him over the other two, but I really think he’s trying to be booked as the weakest to get out of that role.

  • Splat

    They don’t pay the time keeper enough money. Poor guy…

  • Splat

    That was not a good landing.

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

      Who? I was afk.

      • David Jr.

        Dolph Ziggler

      • Splat

        Ziggler missing the Fameasser and landing on the steps.

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

          Ouch!

  • David Jr.

    Batista should not do the spear, It’s Roman Reigns now.

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

      Batista looks like Mason Ryan with the dark hair and beard.

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

    Am I thes only one who wants Summer to take a long walk off a short pier? I know she’s a heel, but this is ridiculous! I’d rather watch X-Pac!

  • Splat

    It’s Bo time.

  • David Jr.

    Do Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt look like they are brothers?

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

      Gee, you think?

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

      I love that they’re playing such similar, yet such different characters. It could be a lot of fun!

      • David Jr.

        I know Mike Rotundo (IRS) is their dad, but do they have the same mother?

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

          As far as I know, they do. Let me check.

          • David Jr.

            Isn’t Bray Wyatt’s (and Bo Dallas’s) mother, Barry Windham’s sister?

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

            Barry and Kendall’s sister as far as I know. And yes, the same mother.

          • David Jr.

            Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt have to be the first 3rd generation brothers to be in the WWE.

          • frank ydg

            Usos.

          • David Jr.

            Usos grandfathers’ as far as I can tell weren’t wrestlers, so they are only 2nd generation brothers.

  • taco bell

    Not a fan of the BO-lieve so far

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

      I had just recently been thinking that a character who was kind to his opponent after each match could be interesting. Not the way Bo did it, but similarly. I think if he has half of his brother’s ability to run with a character, it could work.

  • David Jr.

    From Bo to Bray.

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

      Who makes Bo look so mid-card.

    • Splat

      Bolieve in the buzzards.

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

        Mind if I steal that in the coming weeks for a RIB or Raw Results title?

        • Splat

          Not at all haha.

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

            Thanks! I greatly appreciate it. I’m going to tuck it away for the right moment.

  • gurl bye

    bray needs to come out on top of this feud with cena
    or else wwe can expect a very angry letter that they probably won’t read from me

  • David Jr.

    Hey anyone remember when John Cena said he had a Last Man Standing with JBL? It never happened.

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

      Cole said something about it with JBL the other night.

      • David Jr.

        I missed that, did they say John Cena was wrong?

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

          I only vaguely remember Cole mentioning it. Raw is so hard to follow when I’m writing it that I only caught a bit.

  • Splat

    I want to see Luke Harper in a long singles match at a PPV. I really think he could put on a show if giving the chance.

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

      We were just talking here (in my living room) about how great Harper is, and how Rowan has a great look, but doesn’t have the personality that Harper does. Sometimes wrestlers forget to work to the crowd, on Raw he worked Cena, worked to the crowd, and ran to Bray for approval. He was doing so much in that ring, and made it all work. That man is a star, and has a huge future. I agree that he should have a great PPV battle, but with who?

      • David Jr.

        I think Sheamus or Bad News Barrett could be interesting.

        • Splat

          Or Cesaro.

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

          I completely agree, but I think Splat could be right with Cesaro. Any of them would be fun!

  • David Jr.

    Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio? Didn’t we see this enough in 2012.

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

      I’ve seen enough of ADR for a lifetime!

  • Splat

    Everything is a kick out at 2 any more.

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

      It really is terribly predictable in a lot of ways. Watching a lot of the older PPVs on the WWE Network, and it shows how too overly polished the product is now. It’s not just the PG thing, it’s that there’s no grit anywhere. The Wyatts are as gritty as things are right now, and comparing to to the 90s, they’re buffed up in a huge way.

  • David Jr.

    If the WWE would have stripped Daniel Bryan of the title and just give it to Batista. Batista would wish he’d get X-Pac heat.

    • Splat

      Dave gets tired just walking to the ring. If he had to carry the title I’m not sure he would even make it to the ring.

      • David Jr.

        He’d have to carry two titles. Making it even worse.

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

          I’m reading these comments aloud to Stacy. He and I are laughing and snorting.

        • Splat

          I just pictured him dragging the titles along and stopping and taking a break half way down the ramp.

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

            I was thinking he’d stop for a nap.

          • David Jr.

            Maybe Triple H could buy him a Radio Flyer.

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

            Or a big slide!

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

            Slip & Slide!

          • David Jr.

            If I was a wrestler, that’s how I’d come to the ring. On a big slide.

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

            Yeah, you don’t work with kids all day!

          • David Jr.

            All my promos would be in rhyme.

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

            Of course they would! That’s what sets you apart from the rest of the writing roster at WWENews.

          • David Jr.

            Next week I’ll do my Payback Nursery Rhymes. Though, there’s only 3 matches so far, and we have only have one week from Sunday.

          • Splat

            Why has no one done this yet?

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

            They could do an inflatable slide. It could be great!

  • Splat

    Vickie is the new cheeseburger.

  • David Jr.

    John Cena has somethings he want to put on his chest? Is he making fun of Hulk Hogan there?

    • ldb

      I don’t know for some reason I had a flash back to Sid telling Nash ” I m half as smart as you think I am”

      • David Jr.

        He said, I have half the brain as you do.

        • ldb

          I m old almost got there. Love old Sid promos.

          • David Jr.

            Sid was awesome.

  • Splat

    Cena always trying to sell that merchandise.

    • ldb

      Does a good job selling.

      • Splat

        True. He is like a walking commercial.

  • David Jr.

    What is this, No Shield on Smackdown? Smackdown is their show.

  • ldb

    I like the way Bray comes off. Wins and losses, titles, nothing seems to matter to him. Just destruction…and the sweet smell fire burning the world.

  • Splat

    I’ll be honest I still can’t tell the Usos apart.

  • David Jr.

    I hope the Usos are like Legion of Doom and stay together their entire career. Not everybody can be a main eventer, and they could be a staple hold in the WWE tag division for the next 10 years.

  • ldb

    I like the Usos too. I d like to see a monster tag team. We ve had LOD, Demolition, Kronik, Samoan Swat Team, Natural disasters, Doom etc. I think they missed a chance to build one with TOF if they had gone heel together.

    • David Jr.

      I’d like to see the Usos an Ascension have a long feud in the WWE.

  • David Jr.

    Good Night Everyone.

  • Trapdoor

    So they open Smackdown with a section whose sole
    purpose, is to advertise a service that won’t be available in the UK
    for at least 8 months. Genius(!)
