RAW Is Blogged – Only In Brooklyn Do You Boo Compassion

“When are we going to visit Lanny again?” asked Sam earlier today. When my daughter starts talking about wrestlers, and not local indie wrestlers, as if they’re friends, my life is starting to feel really surreal. Honestly, Lanny is such a lovely guy, and will sit and talk to me for as long as he […]

RAW Is Blogged – That Meat-Hook Clothesline Will Knock Your Shoes Off

Welcome to Raw… Is… Blogged! (I’m trying to imitate Jericho.) I am the one and only CJ Blaze filling in for Kendra this week. I want to start off by thanking Kendra for this huge opportunity. I’ve helped out with RIB segments before, but never have I ever tackled the whole blog! Let’s get started, […]

RAW Is Blogged – I’m Here To Chew Bubblegum And Kick Ass, And I’m All Out Of Bubblegum…

Last night I had a dream that I’d posted this RIB without any opening, just jumped right into the show. Now, since I didn’t write any of this last night, I have no idea where the dream came from, but I guess wrestling and WNW has become so pervasive in my life. Not complaining at […]

RAW Is Blogged – WWE Breaks Out The Cruiserweight Security Guards Division

What an wild week! First all those rumors of Taker possibly appearing sometime soon in the WWE, and those rumors were everywhere! My youngest, Sam, was away at camp, only had her phone at night in her bunk, and she still knew Taker was rumored to appear. Yes, she’s a great little smark, but still! […]

RAW Is Blogged – And Stick It up Your Chernobyl, Buddy

I’m back! Now, I have to admit that my changes in thought on Brock didn’t just happen this week. You would have found me softening last week if Jesse hadn’t been able to lie, cheat, and steal the RIB from me last week. Actually, I have to thank Jesse for taking the RIB for me […]

RAW Is Blogged – I Can Relax On The Beach And Debate What Living Animal I Can Throw Into The Middle Of A Volcano

How quickly things change within the WWE. It seems as though things are going fine with one Superstar or another, and then they’re either in the dog house, or injured and out for six months. What I’m specifically referring to is Cesaro and Kidd as a tag team who never really got named. It appeared […]

RAW Is Blogged – You Called It A Symbol Of Excellence, And I Agree. I Now Want To Make It A Symbol of MY Excellence; Or, The Beast Incarnate’s Noogie!

This week I’m turning my opening over to Jesse Sherwood. He has a lot more to say than I do, and does it much more eloquently than I ever could. Please, give him the love and support that I always do. As a kid, I had the distinct pleasure of seeing true wrestling at its […]

RAW Is Blogged – If You’d wrestled The Big Guy, I’d Have Taken Years Off Your Career

I was running late at the start of Raw, trying to eat a bowl of Cheerios and strawberries before the show started. I didn’t make it, and, of course, they had to start the show with talking. I was typing one handed as I ate, and pausing the show to finish eating. Sam, sitting next […]

RAW Is Blogged – Just Because I Understand, Doesn’t Mean It’s Okay

Raw was a little better than I expected in some ways, disappointing in others. Some of the work that lacked luster at Elimination Chamber came back to impress on Raw, which is great, because the matches in question were terrible! I’m keeping this a bit short so I can get it out at a reasonable […]

RAW Is Blogged – Well, I’d Rather Be A Cockroach Than The Wrong End Of The Authority’s Human Centipede!

I think one of the most obvious disadvantage of having PPVs so close together is the abuse on the bodies of the wrestlers. Ryback going into Raw with his ribs taped after the senton he took from Wyatt at Payback. Neville with his knee taped from some lingering injury. I know that this isn’t really […]

RAW Is Blogged – And If Anybody Doesn’t Know Who I Am, Well, Quite Frankly, Those People Aren’t Worth My Time In The First Place; Or, Sorry I’m Late To This Little Love-Fest!

I want to start this by commenting all the crud that’s been flying around about Ziggler, the claims that he bladed at Payback, and his following tweets. I’m completely floored that people took his tweet that he had actually bladed! I get it, people want to see rule breaking at every turn, and are always […]
