In Ring Segment

Reigns through the stands to the ring. Video of Big Show beating Reigns last week, then Reigns returning to take out Big Show and Rollins, helping Bryan win his match. Reigns gets a mixed reaction from the fans.

Reigns – This time last week I stood here the winner of the 2015 Royal Rumble Match. (heat) When you win the Royal Rumble Match, you guarantee your spot at WrestleMania. Which says I fight Brock Lesnar and I beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE WHC! (heat) Also, The Authority made it clear that I'm not the guy they want in that spot. (mixed) That means the way I prove myself is I win Royal Rumble Match, beat Bryan at Fast Lane (heat), go on to WrestleMania and beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE WHC, then I will do it. This point on, I don't care who gets in my way. You get in my way, I got a spear with your name on it. You can bet your ass that you can believe that!

Bryan out to "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" He's all smiles. "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" fill the arena while he's in the ring.

Bryan – Easy there big dog. I didn't come out here to fight you. I came out to thank you. Last week you came out and speared Big Show, which was amazing! Without that Rollins might have beaten me, I might have been a goner. I wanted to thank you for the opportunity last week. But now you have an opportunity of your own at Fast Lane. You vs me. The winner face Brock Lesnar for the WWE WHC at WrestleMania.

Bryan waits and the "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" goes again, but not as loud.

Bryan – I get it, you're bigger than me, your stronger than me. When it comes to looks, I'd say we're about even. (Reigns laughs) But the reality is, and everyone here knows this, when it comes to wrestling, I am the better wrestler than you!

"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

The Authority's music and out they come. Steph in a purple dress leading Trip, Kane and Big Show. They stay on the stage.

Steph – Hang on a second gentlemen. I know you two are ramped up for Fast Lane, we're all so excited. Fast Lane, for new subscribers is available for free on the WWE Network, as is the entire month of February.

Trip – The same PPV where I will go face to face with Sting. If he shows up. It's been two weeks since I called Sting out, I have yet to hear a word. So I am giving him to the end of the night. Sting, if you're listening, I want an answer by the end of tonight! Are you a man, or are you the coward that I think you are?

Steph – That's right, tensions are incredibly high, with everyone. I think that's why the two of you have been so antagonistic lately. Roman, I'll start with you. You cost Rollins his match on Rollins, and spear and innocent Big Show who was just minding the ring, and the reason why is because Big Show pinned you earlier in the night. You did it out of spite.

Reigns – No, no, no. I did it because I could.

Steph – That's even worse. And you Daniel, you stuff Kane into a casket and close the lid? That's where diseased bodies go to decompose. How sick and twisted are you?

Bryan – I mean, in all fairness, you guys did put me in that match, and also, considering what your husband has done in caskets, I thought you'd appreciate it.

Steph – You know, we can stand here and throw barbs back and forth, but as The Authority, as management, we take accountability very seriously. The two of you have causes emotional distress, physical pain, public humiliation, so we're going to take action, so the two of you will be in tag team action tonight, against Kane and Big Show. That match is right now!

In Ring Segment

Rusev to the ring with Lana in tow in her too shiny red suit. Lana mic squeals against her skirt, she pulls it away. Then squeals again. "USA!" chants.

Lana – Regardless of what the ignorant masses of America think, we are proud to face John Cena at Fast Lane. John Cena should be honored to face Rusev. You see, Rusev and I agree that John Cena has accomplished great things in WWE. Cena's never give up attitude has led him to be one of the greatest Champions in WWE history. Just like an award show like Oscars and Grammys acknowledge someone's great career, we want to recognize John Cena's career tonight.

Video all about Cena, starting good, but ending with bad things happening to Cena, including all major injuries.

Lana – 13 years is a long time, we wonder how a mortal man like John Cena can keep on going. His body must be so tired after all these battles. His body must ache. John Cena, we know you look stronger and greater than ever, inside you're more vulnerable. Your a man at your limits, awaiting annihilation.

Rusev takes the mic and gets heat.

Rusev – John Cena, the man you once were no longer exists. ("What?") You're no longer what you used to be John Cena! ("What?") You don't WHAT me, I'm a hero! ("What?") I'm a hero! ("What?") John Cena you're no longer that you, tough man, full of ruthless aggression! ("What?") Now your fighting spirit has left you. ("What?") And you're just weak! ("What?") at Fast Lane, John Cena I will break your body and crush you spirit! ("What?")

Cena's music and out he comes, eye still really black, mic in hand. He stays on the stage.

Cena – Alright, I'm half blind, but I'm not deaf. From what I gather, I hear Lana and Rusev talking like Rusev's already won this match at Fast Lane. From what I hear, I hear Rusev talking about how he's facing a tired, broken down shell of an old man. The only reason he's fighting is to prove that he's superior. He's unbeatable. If he's so unbeatable, and I'm such an easy walk through, I'm wondering why we're even having a match at Fast Lane. For the same reason all these people here tonight want you to shut the hell up. They know what I know, you're both full of yourselves and you're both full of crap. These people know me, they don't have to watch some of your lousy propaganda videos to realize that over the past 13 years I've been knocked down a few times. Got my nose broke, my neck broke, both my elbows cut, my eyes gouged out and that's just the tip of the iceberg. Here's the part of your little film you left out comrades. Every single time I get knocked down, I get back up! This is why we're having a match at Fast Lane. Yeah, you won some fights, but you need a lesson on respect! So at Fast Lane, this easy target, I'm going to hit you in the mouth so hard that your eyes water. At Fast Lane, this broken down shell, I'm going to lock you up in a pretzel so tight your arms go numb. And at Fast Lane, this here old man will hoist you up on his shoulders, adjust your attitude and by the time you wake up, the only thing you're going to be able to do is turn and ask Lana, 'Lana help Rusev, Rusev have booboo spot.' Don't get it twisted Rusev, I'm not going to take you lightly. I know you're going to show up at Fast Lane to try to hurt me you are everything you say you are. You are a super athlete, but at Fast Lane, we're going to find out if you're tough. You picked a fight with the wrong old man, son. Because at Fast Lane, this old man is gonna whip your ass!

Rusev pitches a fit in the ring, Lana tries to hold him back. "USA!" chants fill the arena.

Rusev – You're gonna kick my ass? John Cena, you talk a lot standing over there. You can't even see me from your one eye. (Rusev waves hand in front of his own face to mock Cena) You can't! You can't even see me John Cena. At WWE Fast Lane,i am going to crush you!

Cena – I see how this works. Hey, everybody, Rusev's got the jokes! It's a shame that Lana's got the balls. Feeling froggy, jump homeboy!

Rusev leaves the ring, Cena meets him at the bottom of the ramp. They fight a bit, then Rusev slams Cena the softest way possible on the ramp, as if Cena would break. They fight more there. Then back up and Cena lifts Rusev, carries him to the stage, trips slams Rusev down. Both up and Rusev pokes Cena in that blackened eye. Rusev sends Cena face first into the back of the stage.

In Ring Segment

Brock Lesnar and Heyman to the ring.

Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and I have been authorized this evening to disseminate some information on behalf of The Beast who imposes his presence upon you, Brock Lesnar. That's kind of the theme of tonight's sermon, information, because it's going to be apparent to my client that society no longer places any value on credible information. Look how far everyone has gone to crucify Brian Williams on NBC News for embellishing a story or two, outright lying, and yet Brian Williams is not the #1 liar in the land, in fact he's a distant second to a distinction that is held jointly by Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan. They are going to have a match at Fast Lane, the winner of that match, and the winner goes on to have an opportunity for that Championship against The Beast at WrestleMania. If either Bryan or Reigns come out and say they have a chance against Brock Lesnar, they're lying. To their families, to each other, and to each and every one of you. They're simply lying to their-selves. Let's look at Reigns, the baddest dude from the most feared tribe from the most violent island in Samoa, and yet I stood two feet away when Reigns looked eye to eye with Brock Lesnar, and Roman, that yellow stream running down your leg was not pineapple juice. Come on Roman, there's nothing to be afraid of, or hang your head down. It's a normal reaction facing The Beast. Then there's Daniel Bryan. "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" The tragic tale of the overachieving ultimate underdog who actually has lied to himself into believing he has a chance against Brock Lesnar. Ladies and gentlemen, let me make this simple for you. Look at Bryan, and look at Brock Lesnar. Do you really think Bryan has a chance?

"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

Heyman – I'm not just talking about the size difference, because what Bryan is lacking in physical stature compared to Brock Lesnar, he more than makes up for with in-ring ability, knowledge of submission holds, grit, and a pipeline to God, because he's pulled more miracles out of his tuckus than we've ever seen anyone pull off, but do you really believe that Bryan is the one to beat the one in 21-1?

"YES!" "YES!" "NO!" "YES!" "YES!"

Heyman – Let me spell this out for you, so even you can understand this, it doesn't matter who wins at Fast Lane, the winner of that match should hop into a helicopter with Brian Williams and subject themselves to enemy fire, because that enemy fire is a hail storm in the form of an F5, because an F5 will take that chopper down, straight into the middle of the ring at WrestleMania, because that is the fate that awaits Bryan. That is the fate that awaits Reigns. That's the fate that awaits any man who tries to take the Championship away from The Beast, The Conqueror, the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE WHC, Brock Lesnar.

Backstage Segment

Renee – Please welcome Daniel Bryan. After what we just saw, do you think you and Reigns can coexist in your match later tonight?

Bryan – What happened was an accident, and I can't blame Reigns for reacting the way he did. In the heat of the moment, I might have done the same thing. So, do I think we can coexist tonight?

Reigns (from behind Bryan) – You're damn right we can! It's very clear, we have a common enemy, The Authority. Do I say we take them out, and that will leave all kind of room for us to handle our business at Fast Lane. Regardless of what happens, it's Bryan and Reigns at Fast Lane. See you out there Daniel.

In Ring Segment

Trip – For 20 years I eat, sleep and breathe WWE. While others have come and gone, I have stayed here. My blood, sweat, tears, my passion, all to make this a better place. All of that, all of my life's work almost taken away by one man, Sting. Sting, the face of WCW! WCW, the company I helped destroy. (heat) Now, 14 years later, and Sting finally gathers up the guts to do something about it. Because for 14 years, he stayed away. For 14 years he knew I'd personally expose him. Now, for whatever reason, at Survivor Series, 14 years later Sting finally decides to take his shot. And when he takes his shot, does he take it like a man? No, he attacks like a coward. Well Sting, I am a man, and I am calling you out at Fast Lane, to stand in this ring, face to face with me, and I will look you dead in your eye and explain to you why you were right to stay away for 14 years. And if you agree, you agree to never show your face here again, then I will let you leave Fast Lane with your dignity in tact. I'm a patient man, but I've called Sting out, like a man, for two straight weeks with no answer. My patience has run out. Sting, I want an answer, and I want it now!

"We want Sting!" chants can barely be heard.

Then Trip's name appears on a blank white tron, with black shadow trees growing up and together, forming Trip's skull face out of the branches with imposing music.

"We want Sting!" chants. The light go out completely. The lights come back up in the ring, and it appears to be Sting behind Trip. Trip turns and drops back to the mat to scurry away, but that wasn't Sting.

On the tron, behind Trip sitting in the ring, a black screen with white trees growing. In the tree branches forms Sting's face. Above it, in the same block letters as Trip's name earlier, pops up simply, "I accept". The screen simply flashes to a black screen with the white letters. Another caw and it's gone. Trip to his feet in the ring, looking around for where Sting might be.

  • So, it looks like Rikishi will be inducted. Thoughts?

    • Andrew

      im conflicted i mean i really like rikishi but idk.

      • Why not? He totally deserves it, but is it really his time? Or should someone else be going before him?

        • Andrew

          thats what i mean i think there are more guys who should go in before him but i do think he deserves it

    • I can dig it. I’m thinking his kids’ll induct him and it’ll be a nice family moment.

  • Jesse Sherwood
    • Ew! But Rikishi has some serious sexy about him.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That is a smooth voice. Why he didn’t go into making Marvin Gaye-esque music after WWE is beyond me!

        • He called me Mamma when I met him. I had Sam with me, so it made sense, but it was that voice.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That voice could melt any woman’s heart!

          • His singing voice could also melt paint off a 1978 Ford Pinto.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Botch, you are a BAKA for that!

    • Oh. My. Werd. I love R&B botch-ness.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        BOTCH!

        • Rikishi…SINGS TOO MUCH!!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That was a really odd album. It was basically made to put Cena’s rapping over.

          • It was an epic mess.

          • I couldn’t get through 20 seconds of that. He has a slightly better singing voice than, say, Marlon Jackson, but that’s about all I can say about his “singing” talents.

          • Before they autotuned the heck out of everything.

          • Rikishi *needs* Autotune, Melodyne, and any other pitch correction software you can find.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Better than Stone Cold singing…

          • I must hear. Off to YouTube…LOL!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He sings a bit in a segment with Jim Johnston

  • Xavier

    What’s good everybody

    • What it is?

      • Xavier

        Chillin bro. How was your weekend?

        • Cool. Literally…LOL!

          • Snowy?

          • Just freezing. Got down to 18 on Friday night. I had to load sound gear into my car in it. Not my favorite thing in the world.

          • Down to 18? We haven’t seen 18 in over a week, possibly more. It got up to 7 today. And if it doesn’t stop soon, the snow is going to be over Sam’s head!

          • Oh, I’m sure you are suffering. We DC folk don’t get temperatures that cold.

          • When I lived in Baltimore I was designated driver for a dusting of snow. It was sad. “She’s from Maine, she knows how to drive in this stuff!”

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Lol… We haven’t been below 40 all week…

    • Andrew

      whats up!

      • Xavier

        Ready some RAW. How you been

        • Andrew

          awesome same here and im great

  • Xavier

    Congrats too Rikishi’s induction. Met him once in LA. Really good guy.

    Here’s to hoping that Lance Russell gets into the HOF this year though, very long overdue

    • I want David Crockett into too. GCW rules!

      • Xavier

        He’d be a very good inductee as well. Wasn’t he on the plane with Flair that crashed as well?

    • Rikishi was kick ass when I met him too.

      • Xavier

        I’m really happy for the guy. Right in his backyard as well. I know the Usos are from there, I believe he’s from the Bay area as well

    • Jesse Sherwood

      HEAR HEAR!!! Big Nose for HOF!!!

      • Xavier

        LMAO, his nose is pretty big. How is his health these days?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Pretty decent. He is gaunt, but he’s 88. They did a big Memphis Memories show back around Thanksgiving. Here’s the video.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQGLw9A3nBA

          • Xavier

            Very nice

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Well worth the watch for ALL wrestling fans, but for us that grew up on Memphis Wrestling, it was a fantastic trip down memory lane.

  • I’m going to be late getting back from an errand.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’s cool man! Don’t rush and get into an accident or anything.

  • Seth

    Cold rain everywhere!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      SETH!

      • Seth

        One of these days I will cash it in. 😛

    • Xavier

      It was 75 today where I live

      • Grrrr!

        • Xavier

          The West Coast or the Dirty South are the places too be in the Winter

          • It wasn’t terrible up here until two weeks ago. Since then we’ve been slammed over and over. The kids will be going to school until July at this rate!

          • Xavier

            You live in Maine?

          • Yup!

          • Xavier

            Heard you guys got the best clam chowder up there

          • Yes, and the best lobster!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            They should have some sort of catastrophe exemption in the law books. with us here in AR, if more than 10 days are missed, the schools can file for a waiver for the rest, but have to make up the 10 days in any way possible before the end of the year.

          • Interesting. We so rarely have this issue. They plan for 7-10 snow days, but we lost so much so quickly.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          We hit 55, but it was windy all day.

          • Oh, wind. The humanity!!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Gusts up to 40 MPH? My van was getting whipped around as I went to get my son from school!

          • I was getting gusts like that, but on snow and ice coming back from my appt today. I also went to get coffee, so, as you know, it’s not terribly far, but still far enough in bad driving.

          • Xavier

            I worked on oil rigs in North Dakota for four years, the wind up there is no joke. Cuts right through you

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I bet man!

          • Wow! That had to suck!

      • Way to rub it in…

        • Xavier

          I couldn’t help it lol

          • There’s no way you even tried. That post showed up way too quick…LOL!

          • Xavier

            LMAO

      • Seth

        Dude! I hate you!

        • Xavier

          Lol I love you too buddy

      • Andrew

        ugh! lol

    • Snowing like a bee-otch here.

      • Seth

        Again!? This is just a giant rib.

        • Mother Nature is hating on the north east. It’s been snowing since Saturday morning, early, and will snow through the night. More coming Thursday, and possibly even more on Saturday.

          • Seth

            Mother Nature is having her time of the month and she just picked the North East to do it on…again.

          • She’s having the equivalent of a year of that time of the month, all in snow!

          • Seth

            I just bit my tongue on what I WAS going to say…

          • I can get away with that type of thing, being the only female here most of the time! ;}

          • Seth

            I kind’a can’t because if I tried that joke…I get kicked between the legs.

          • I’m pretty chill, but we do try to keep things (mostly) PG around here.

          • Seth

            No, I was going to say one of my closer female friends would kick me between the legs! She doesn’t like THOSE type of jokes…

          • Ah. I’ve learned that they are just words.

          • I wish we had some of that down here. We’ve only been teased with a little snow.

          • I step out my front door and the snow (some piled, but mostly natural) is almost up to my boobs. I’m fairly tall for a female.

          • I’m kind of jealous of all that snow…

          • Don’t be, it gets old very quickly.

  • Andrew

    taker or sting should be in the hall of fame next year right? to me it should be a given

    • Xavier

      I agree

    • Would make sense to me.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Taker should have been this year, if not for Macho Man going in. There is no doubt he’s the headliner.

      • Andrew

        agreed and sting should be in too

  • CJ Blaze

    Howdy hey

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hey hey hey!

      • CJ Blaze

        It’s that time of the week again!

    • Hey yo.

      • CJ Blaze

        After a long, stressful day, I’m looking forward to unwinding by watching wrestling. Hopefully WWE has another week like last.

    • Andrew

      eyyy!

      • CJ Blaze

        Sup?!

        • Andrew

          ready for some monday night raw!

          • CJ Blaze

            Me too!

  • Seth

    I know this isn’t wrestling related but…I went nuts watching the first look into the Persona 5 game-play and all that. It looks great.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Absolutely great! I’m already hyped!

      • Seth

        Just take my money Atlus!

  • CJ Blaze

    I’m going to somewhat go out on a limb here and say that Sasha Banks will be in action tonight. She was on the road with the main roster this weekend and Takeover is this Wednesday!

  • The Breaker

    *Randomly arrives in a taxi, a la Dean Ambrose*

    • Do something with that hair before you come in here!

      • The Breaker

        No way! It’s part of my gimmick now!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Breaker! It’s been a while!!!

      • The Breaker

        It has! How’s it going, Jesse?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Pretty good for the most part!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Thanks to Xavier, I feel nostalgic. So, I present to you guys one of my favorite memories growing up, Monday Night Memories, as performed by Jimmy Hart.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlbTFUy3k08

    • This. Is. Epic!!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It brings me goosebumps every time I hear it. I feel like I’m 5 again.

        • Never knew this existed. Very cool!!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I grew up with Memphis Wrestling. Jimmy Hart became a big name there, and was scooped up by VKM for Hogan. Jimmy was a big heel and led a faction called the First Family, whose goal was to take down Jerry Lawler, which ended up being repeated in WWF by Bobby Heenan and the Heenan Family trying to bring down Hogan.

  • Otunga does not have his thing together. Wow…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Otunga is a walking pile of excrement. He’ll be in the next round of cuts.

      • BRING BACK DAWSON ALEXANDER!!

      • I think only his relationship has kept him in the company. The mainstream ties helps him in a huge way.

        • …even though he’s almost never there to do anything at all.

          • But he’s connected, and his name is always along with the WWE when he’s mentioned with her. That’s all that matters. His downside paycheck is worth that.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Very true… BAKA!

  • “Stone Age Smackdown”. Oh my…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yeah… The WWE Flintstones movie will be bad.

  • Scott

    Whats up everyone! Hoping for a great Raw tonight

  • CJ Blaze

    #BringCodyBack

  • Otunga has absolutely *zero* personality. Corey, on the other hand, is absolutely golden.

  • Scott

    Sting answers tonight. Pre recorded or will he show up live?

  • Here we go!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    AND HERE WE GO!

  • Off to write! I’ll leave you to the nostalgic video czar, Jesse! And my favorite hardworking young writer, CJ!

    • CJ Blaze

      Wooo!

  • Seth

    Bang bang. It’s really funny at least for the opening recap to RAW to have it on mute because you can insert all kinds of kooky dialogue.

    • Xavier

      Make us a youtube vid lol

      • Seth

        I just have to record the opening to RAW on my computer somehow and I can insert my own commentary in. 😛

  • CJ Blaze

    Tonight is the night

    • Seth

      Every night is the night. Why just tonight?

      • CJ Blaze

        Rollins cashes in? I wish… 🙂

  • Seth

    Ohio State. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    • Big D

      I’m just glad that I don’t have to hear roll tide for the next year

  • Ramen Rones!

    • Seth

      Chicken ramen? Dammit Japan.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Snowman Reigns!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    For once, I don’t mind opening with a promo…. Provided that he actually got a good and short script.

  • Xavier

    That spear last week was sick

    • The one on J&J was great.

      • Seth

        I take perverse joy and entertainment seeing J&J get thrown around. They’re great at it.

  • Seth

    I’m pretty sure I mentioned this before but I’d feel better from a cosmetic standpoint about Reigns if he tweaked his look because it still looks like he’s in The Shield. Makes him feel stagnant.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, so does Seth Rollins. Put some more flash in it!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    A lot more boos than cheers for Roman in this promo…

    • Xavier

      Yeah, Ohio must be Bryan country

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Of course, some will say it is just a smarky crowd.

    • Jason

      But according to HHH last week on the podcast, everyone was cheering him!

      • Xavier

        They were last week and on Smackdown

      • Jesse Sherwood

        New week, new reaction.

  • Jason

    Evening all!

  • BOTCH!!

    • Seth

      Did he censor himself? It sounded like breeep or bleep out of his mouth.

      • It just sounded to me like yet another botch. He almost had it.

        • Seth

          It was okay. Less is more with him.

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I may not be around much today, got a mini-review to do, but Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to MONDAY NIGHT RAW!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      POPS!

  • Tone

    Roman is not there yet….

  • The Breaker

    Hey Roman, that is what a real pop sounds like!

    • Xavier

      Bryan’s YES chants this week are pretty weak so far

      • Beezus

        Watch it again. They were pretty nuts.

        • Xavier

          Nah not really bro, sounded just as weak the 2nd time around. He also started getting mixed reactions near the end of his promo

      • The Breaker

        Yeah, I might’ve spoken too soon. lol

  • Danielle has lovely hair lately.

    • Big D

      Working on his HBK game.

  • Seth

    There is a sign that has Roman’s face on it with the word DERP on it. I giggled.

  • savokes

    What’s up everyone!

  • Zack

    Hey no Authority to start the show

    • Seth

      Don’t jinx it.

    • Jason

      Yet….

    • savokes

      Hah, *knocks on wood*

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Behold the King…

    • Jason

      And there they are

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      …you did this to us.

    • BlazeKing

      Jinx!

    • Zack

      Spoke too soon

  • Bryan N.

    About even, lol

  • Xavier

    He made Roman Reigns laugh lol

    • Seth

      It’s a hell’va lot harder to keep a straight face on somethings. Think we should give credit more often when they do.

    • Silence, Reigns mark!!!

  • Reigns personality finally comes through. That smile was totally genuine.

  • The Breaker

    “When it comes to looks, we’re about even” lol

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Daniel Bryan actually made Roman laugh with that one!

  • Xavier

    Bryan getting some mixed reactions as well

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WRESTLING USED ON TV!!! MIND BLOWN!!!

    • The Breaker

      I suppose we have CM Punk to thank for that.

  • savokes

    Mixed all the way around for these two in the ring

    • Xavier

      I noticed, very weird crowd tonight

  • Seth

    ZACK YOU JINXED IT!

  • Bryan N.

    Kane, get back in the casket dammit!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      THAT’S got me ticked!!! One week off TV?!?!?

  • savokes

    That was VERY weird way to announce that possible match

  • Scott

    HHH is extra pumped! I think Sting will be live!

  • Zack

    Hey look Stephanie McMahon and 3 near 50 year olds

  • Seth

    Big Show turned again already.

  • The Breaker

    The phrase “An innocent Big Show” should never be used again. lol

  • Xavier

    LMAO low blow by Bryan lol

    • BIG M

      Reigns should take notes.
      Bryan will never be known for his mic work but he has developed a style of delivery that works for him.

  • OOOHHHHH!!!

  • ron

    One comment on this segment Stephanie has Beautiful Sexy eyes

    • She’s absolutely gorgeous.

      • ron

        Didn’t want the Chyna/Russo BS issue to come up tonight but after seeing chyna’s video and Steph. Tonight if I could I would shake HHHs hand and say a hellva excellent decision man!

    • Xavier

      Truedat

    • ron

      Now what did she say??

      • Jason

        Dunno, I was looking at her eyes

  • Seth

    NO! NOT KATIE VICK! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • Scott

    KATIE VICK REFERENCE!

  • The Breaker

    KATIE VICK REFERENCE!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    KATIE VICK REFERENCE!!!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Katie Vick reference!…ew.

  • Zack

    Katie Vick reference!

  • Bryan N.

    Let’s not reference that angle, please…

  • BlazeKing

    DB brought up Katie Vick hahaha!!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    Apparently Katie Vick was referenced… LOL

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Kane and Big Show teaming up? I think those two have had more matches teamed together than the Uso’s…

    • Seth

      Even more yet against each other.

    • Xavier

      Lol true, at this point though I’d rather see them as a tag team though then competing in singles matches

  • savokes

    Both guys showed some good personality on the mic tonight so far

  • Zack

    I promised last week I’d scream if I had to watch Reigns vs Big Show again…sooo I think I scared my dogs…

  • The Breaker

    I wonder how the parents in the audience are going to answer their kids’ questions about what Bryan meant about the things Triple H did in caskets… lol

    • Bryan N.

      “We’ll tell you when you’re older Jimmy”

      • Seth

        R-Truth: LIL JIMMY!?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I just used that…

        • Bryan N.

          Great minds think alike Jesse 😛

    • Seth

      The answer belongs in a white card on Cards Against Humanity…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I just told my son that he can find out when he is old enough.

    • Jason

      I’ll admit, I had to actually Google it. It was just before I started watching WWE.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        You were much better off not knowing!!!

  • What do you know, we’re actually gong to have a match less than 1/2 hour into the show!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Actually would have been first 15 minutes if not for commercials!!!

      • You’re right, officially 17 minutes.

    • savokes

      “Match”

  • Big D

    And that was your winner for the 2015 “Tell Me You Didn’t Just Say That” Slammy.

  • The Breaker

    So we have future opponents teaming up with each other. Such an innovative concept!

  • Bryan N.

    We’re gonna have a tag team match to start off RAW playa!!

    • BlazeKing

      Still got nothing on the Royal Rumble PPV, lol.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Tag matches… Tag matches EVERYWHERE…

  • Seth

    Roman with the old ‘Samoans must have headbutts’ trope. 😛

  • See? Big Show would be much more dominant if he just imagine Roman was someone knocking on his tour bus window…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      OUCH!

    • Zack

      HE DENTED THE WINDOWS OK?!

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      Wicked burn of the night? First contender, if nothing else!

      • ::::takes bow:::::

      • Big D

        I’m pretty sure Bryan gets wicked burn of the night.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          But i can’t feature Bryan’s!

    • Bryan N.

      POINTS!

    • Seth

      That was his heel turn for the day.

      • There’ll be others….

        • Seth

          He turns on every kick. Nevermind.

  • Seth

    Nobody has better babyface fire right now than Daniel Bryan.

  • Bryan N.

    JBL giving fashion critique?

  • savokes

    I can’t stand hearing Steph screamcheering over everything else…it just really grinds my gears

    • BlazeKing

      It chaps my hide sometimes too.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hey Savokes!

    • Xavier

      She’s just being a great heel

      • savokes

        And I’m hating her accordingly haha!

  • Zack

    I can only imagine the conversation made in WWE creative meetings. Ok so Daniel Bryan is who the fans are really wanting, so we’ll open and close the shows with him, but remember we’re NOT going to give him the title or give any consideration to a legitimate Wrestlemania spot because he’s not who Vince wants….remember to tell the fans that we listen to them though.

    • Xavier

      They did last year, he got hurt. Someone else’s turn.

      • Zack

        Reigns got hurt and they continued to push him (awfully mind you) when he returned

        • Xavier

          Have you seen Reigns’ mech sales. He was #2 behind Cena last year. He has plenty of fans

          • He doesn’t get the reactions Bryan gets.

          • Xavier

            Live reactions don’t always equal dollars though.

          • Yeah but they do equal popularity in other ways. When Bryan cuts a promo, he’s got the crowd in the palm of his hand (largely, no one does tonight yet). When Reigns cuts one, he cuts one…

          • Xavier

            Reigns got good pops last week. Bryan even drew boos last week at the end of his promo last week

          • Zack

            Reigns drew a lot of boos when he first came out tonight

          • Seth

            My feeling is the way they’re doing things right now isn’t doing favors for anyone at the moment.

          • Xavier

            Agreed

          • Xavier

            True. Like I said Reigns & Bryan’s reactions have been different the past month depending on what city they are in

          • Zack

            To be fair if Bryan didn’t get hurt he probably would have had merch sales up there with Cena. My point being if someone is being pushed for the main event of Wrestlemania, why have someone else open and close the shows? It shows a lack of confidence.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I still say I want to see full year totals, but we will never see it.

          • Xavier

            I do too, but it’s pretty obvious that Reigns is making Vince a ton of money right now.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I know personally, I have 3 Bryan and 1 Reigns shirt, but they have only put out the 1 so far I think.

          • Seth

            My theory is a little different. Merch sales can fluctuate and aren’t always the best indicator on what’s best for the company. I think the best thing you can judge it on is ‘Are the shows better because of you?’. I lean more toward having a good product and design the merch accordingly to that. You don’t always know what merch they’re selling using everyone and some people have more merch than others. There’s also the question of live events, too. There’s many factors.

          • Xavier

            True, but you could say the same for live reactions. That doesn’t tell the full story either when you consider that reactions for both guys have been changing throughout the past month on a city to city basis

          • Seth

            My thinking is…put on the best product. You get more people to come in to pay for parking…more people that’ll buy merch. Whole nine yards. I don’t make a decision based on one factor but the biggest factor to me is ‘What is best for this wrestling show?’

    • Seth

      This isn’t the first or the last time a promoter leans toward size, look, or both in the decision making.

    • The Breaker

      Maybe they think that they don’t need to give Bryan the title because he’s already massively over with the fans.

      • Guest

        Make Bryan go heel. Would be way more unpredictable and interesting if he joined the Authority

        • Big D

          They don’t have enough collective brain power to make that work.

        • Seth

          I don’t think there’s any way to justify that particular heel turn at all. He doesn’t fit their montra, their look or any of that. Plus they’ve done way too much to him even after he’s come back from the neck.

  • Seth

    THAT was a disqualification? What!?

  • CJ Blaze

    That’s dumb

  • Andrew

    wow

  • savokes

    I would love for someone who uses the spear to throw a chair at someone seconds before spearing them, a la RVD a used to do

  • heel turn? Please

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Jooooy….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Love the sign in the crowd! “Mid 90s Kevin Naaaaaaash”!

  • savokes

    Well that cements an appearance from Sting

  • The Breaker

    I’d like it if Roman turned heel, but it seems WWE wants to set up a face vs. face rivalry type match.

    • Xavier

      Make Bryan go heel. Would be way more unpredictable and interesting if he joined the Authority.

      • The Breaker

        After beating all of Evolution at WM 30, it wouldn’t make any sense for Bryan to join The Authority.

        • Xavier

          What sense does it make for Reigns to go heel though?

          • Big D

            With him being the badass, it makes the transition easier

          • Xavier

            Why can’t he be a face and be a badass?

          • Big D

            I’m not saying he can’t. Just that his current character would make the transition to heel easier than Bryan’s.

          • Seth

            It doesn’t make sense for EITHER of them to turn to join The Authority. That doesn’t mean one can’t turn heel without Authority approval though…but I don’t think they need anything more to extend The Authority as I think that group has run its course.

          • Xavier

            I agree, I was just making a point.

          • Seth

            I was just adding a different layer to it.

          • The Breaker

            He’s neither a heel or a face at this point, and there’s a chance he’ll get booed at Fast Lane since he’s going one-on-one with the most over babyface in the company. And Brock will get more cheers than him at WM. It makes all the sense in the world.

          • Xavier

            They just did that with Batista last year. It would literally be the same thing as last year. And besides what sense would it make to turn Brock when he’s about too leave? Cena got booed early in his push against Triple H and WWE kept him face and things turned out great for him. Imagine how bad it would of been too turn him in hignsight. Would of been terrible.

          • The Breaker

            The booking of WM definitely depends on whether Brock chooses to re-sign. But he can turn face and drop the title to Rollins post-match. And yeah, we’ve seen Heyman turn on Brock before to side with his opponent, but it’s been long enough since then to not feel like a rehash.

          • Xavier

            True it has been awhile but Lesnar’s face turn was terrible. He really doesn’t have the persona to pull it off like guys like Cena or Bryan.

          • The Breaker

            Brock gets cheered the way he is now. And really, he hasn’t really even done anything heelish in a while.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          He still needs to pin Flair for “ALL” of Evolution…

          • Xavier

            Lol you know what he meant

          • Jesse Sherwood

            😀 Still counts!

  • ldb

    Does seth get an rko outa nowhere tonight?

    • Andrew

      hopefully

    • Xavier

      That would be great

  • Bryan N.

    Main Event Mugging, this is new..

    • Right? Anyone else think Russo’s booking?

      • Bryan N.

        Nah, he’s too busy “defending” Chyna over last week’s podcast

        • Jesse Sherwood

          And himself in the Trial of Russo on WrestleTalk TV in the UK.

  • Scott

    Lopsided handicap match….check. HHH acting extra intense…..check. Sting will be live

  • Jesse Sherwood

    NXT advert!!!

    • I. Can’t. Wait.

    • Big D

      The A Show!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        AMEN!!!

      • Seth

        THE show.

      • Jason

        Assuming I need to watch and catch up on NXT?

  • CJ Blaze

    Sting will be out later. I guess that’s how every big handicap match will end.

    • Zack

      Seems to be a theme with that

  • Jason

    J&J, Seth, Kane, & Big Show vs Bryan & Reigns? This has Sting and/or Orton showing up written all over it.

  • The Breaker

    Can’t wait for NXT Takeover. Might have a MOTY candiate or two!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Zayn/Owens WILL be MOTY. Look at their past matches. They are gods together.

      • The Breaker

        Agreed! And you can’t sleep on Balor/Neville!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Hell no you can’t!!! I wonder what his entrance will be like this time!

          • The Breaker

            It’ll be creepy. This much we know. lol

      • ldb

        Yes and I bet it will pee Vince off . This show will make Raw or smackdown look like TNA.

  • BlazeKing

    *sigh* And they still don’t promote NXT unless there’s a PPV right around the corner so Raw doesn’t look too embarrassing to watch!

    • Seth

      NXT is great. Less is more and that’s turned it into a hell’va product now hasn’t it?

      • BlazeKing

        As long as it keeps the Raw and Smackdown writers away from NXT, I’m cool with it.

  • The Bellas sucking on the app and Paige winning everything.

    • Seth

      There’s a joke in there somewhere.

      • Bryan N.

        It’s too easy Seth

        • Seth

          As easy as the…oh nevermind.

          • Bryan N.

            LOL!

          • Jason

            Katie Vick?

          • Seth

            Don’t make me go into my list of Sunny jokes so I can rid that memory.

      • Oh my…

      • Jason

        Can’t type what I want. Might get in trouble.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          LOL! Neither can I!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, if they suck that bad, maybe they have a future in Chyna’s current trade…

  • savokes

    My heart grows fonder for an RKO…I may jump outta mark seat when/if that happens

    • Andrew

      mine too lol i cant understand why they have been delaying it

      • Zack

        Last week would have been perfect

        • Andrew

          definately

    • Xavier

      It’s amazing how over he is now when just six months ago people were crapping on the guy

      • savokes

        Seth “the skimpy heel” Rollins had a great deal to do with that

        • savokes

          Hah *slimey

        • Seth

          Skimpy!? That’s a new one.

          • savokes

            Damn auto correct haha…slimey is the word I was going for

      • Bryan N.

        Time and the vines helped

        • Seth

          That and giving Randy something to sink his teeth into as a performer helps too.

      • The Breaker

        Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

  • savokes

    So much double duty going on tonight

  • Seth

    That random belt on Ryback…just looks ridiculous.

    • Zack

      I wear a weight belt even though I’m not lifting! RAAHHH

  • The Breaker

    Why are we talking about Eminem during Ryback’s entrance?

    • Zack

      Why not? lol

    • BlazeKing

      Ryback ate about 4 bags of them today, lol.

    • Bryan N.

      They have a quota to fill for irrelevant information during the show.

  • ldb

    Ryback vs some of the shield after all this time. Should be a good match.

  • ldb

    You guys ever watch those bad lip readings on Youtube? We need one for all HHH’s 20 minute promos I bet it would be epic.

    • Jason

      With Shawn Michaels doing the reading?

    • Bryan N.

      That would be well worth the 20 minutes

  • Zack

    WWE is like that kid who isn’t really friends with the popular kids, but they figure if they talk about the popular kids like they are friends, people will think they’re popular too. “Haha! Yeah WWE and Eminem go way back! He did our theme song once! And Madonna joke like we’re friends! See we’re cool!”

  • Seth

    Back to back DQs to open a show? Why?

  • CJ Blaze

    Let’s get some clean finishes, seriously.

  • Jason

    I can tell this is going to be a heel show tonight

  • savokes

    Haha, cole just summed up all that is wrong with the authorities power

    • Jesse Sherwood

      #NoCleanMatches

  • Just got home. sounds like RAW is Interference tonight.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye sir…

    • The Breaker

      They’re booking the show like TNA did during the lows of the Aces & Eights angle.

  • Zack

    Ryback is thinking “God this feels familiar”

  • The Breaker

    Where’s Ziggler? His random new BFF just got mugged!

    • Seth

      Babyfaces are selfish.

    • Following In John “I help Nobody in trouble” Footsteps,

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Oh? A DQ finish? I do hope this isn’t a Raw not worth awakening from my nap.

  • ldb

    Would it kill them to have a clean match? The casket match was the first one in so long we all forgot what one was like.

  • Jason

    WWE & The Flintstones? Will Cena have his fruity pebbles?

  • CJ Blaze

    Mr. McMagma… Oh boy

    • Bryan N.

      My eyes rolled too hard

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Did the Flinstones “movie” get a sequel? I can’t really tell, I stab my ears and gouge my eyes whenever that commercial starts.

  • Zack

    Dude…I’d totally watch the WWE/Finstones crossover #noshame

    • Bryan N.

      Who goes under to Fred Flintstone though?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Barney and Fred’s voices are so bad…

  • Zayn on the app!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      YES!!!! POINTS!

  • savokes

    You know…the main event match is not going to be clean either! Just sayin…

  • LOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!

  • Bryan N.

    Oh the irony!!!

  • Zack

    Oh the freakin irony!!!

  • Bad time to do a Big SHow anti bullying commerical

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Very bad time.

  • That was SOOOOOOO completely wrong.

  • The Breaker

    FELLAAAAAA!!!!

  • Jason

    Sheamus!

  • Seth

    Maybe I’m old school but heels shouldn’t be sending a message to be anti-bullying on any program. Just doesn’t feel right as a wrestling fan at all.

    • Zack

      Agree 100% there are plenty of faces, why not use them?

  • Zack

    Sheamus! We need you back soon!

  • Simon Veitch

    Yay Sheamus

  • ldb

    I really thought that was spoof with Big SHow bullying commerical

  • Sheamus is coming back!!

  • Seth

    Sheamus, I want you to KICK PEOPLE IN THE FACE! KICK THEM ALL!

  • CJ Blaze

    SHEAMUS! 😀

  • Big D

    LOBSTER HEAD!

    • Jason

      Human jar of mayonnaise!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Oh? Sheamus is coming back? Maybe he’ll be back with a personality this time.

  • Andrew

    sheamus!

  • Bryan N.

    The Great White is back! Sweet!

  • The Breaker

    He’s back just in time to face Bryan for a third time at WM!

  • Zack

    Oh hello my future wife

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sheamus!!! And this looks like a very heelish return video! Like when he was in WWECW.

    • ldb

      yes sir, he was already growing ” heel ” hair

  • Bryan N.

    My ears….

    • Big D

      Who in the blue hell thought this was a good idea?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Steph, I bet!

      • Bryan N.

        One hint, you’ll find him at Gorilla with the headset on

  • Seth

    DAMMIT! NOT THE BRIE MODE SONG! I HATE MY LIFE!

  • Zack

    Nikki looks good with her hair back like that

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Jobber entrance for my Paige? BAKA BAKA BAKA!!!

    • Seth

      This is getting ridiculous…NO MORE JOBBER ENTRANCES FOR ESTABLISHED STARS ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE GOING TO BE ON PAY PER VIEW!

    • BlazeKing

      One of the main reasons I didn’t want Paige to be called up from NXT so soon. Her best matches are never really on Raw or Smackdown…

  • Scott

    Big Show bullying ad cracked me up! Lol I know theres 2 sides to every story but cmon it was funny.

    • It was pathetic…LOL!

      • Big D

        Wait, why are my windows dented?

        • Seth

          IT’S ME D! IT WAS ME ALL ALONG!

          • Big D

            Awww, sunuvabitch!

        • Eddie Edwards

          Niki knows but she’s not telling

    • ldb

      Yeah next Kane will be preventing forest fires.

  • and a bullying angle follows a Anti-Bullying commerical. that istrue irony if I have ever seen it.

    • Xavier

      One’s kayfabe though and one is not

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Face pop for the heel Brie, or do most people just not care to follow that?

    • BlazeKing

      Brie gets cheered because she actually wrestles!

  • Zack

    “BRIEEE MOOOODDEE!!!” Fans: “Yay! Wait…boo! Wait what are we supposed to do?”

  • Bryan N.

    Did someone inform the Bellas that St. Patrick’s Day is next month?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And that nearly see through green leggings aren’t ring tights?

  • Scott

    Who is Drew McDonald?

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      He had a farm, last I heard.

  • CJ Blaze

    New tatoos for Paige

    • Bryan N.

      I thought those looked new

    • Zack

      I don’t think they’re tats, just literal ink

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’s ink. It smudged. Says McDonald.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Couldn’t see the other arm.

        • Zack

          RIP McDonald

  • Seth

    Thank you JBL. It’s a traditional head scissors and not a figure four headlock Michael. At least you are trying…sort’a today.

    • BlazeKing

      Cole also always called the Shield’s 3-man Powerbomb a “Triple Powerbomb” like a dolt…

      • Seth

        I so want to mute the telly…

  • Bryan N.

    Wow, a clean finish!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Paige wins!!!

  • Seth

    OH MY GOD! A CLEAN FINISH ON A DIVAS MATCH THAT WASN’T A ROLL UP OF DEATH!

  • savokes

    Even though there wasn’t a ton of explanation as to why the Bella’s are on the same page now…I’m thanking everything that is holy that their dumbass angle is over

    • Worst angle ever…

      • Seth

        Definition…wrestlecrap!

      • No.Peppers the dog was the worst angle ever.

      • Andrew

        hornswaggle the raw gm was terrible too

        • He’s the better actor by a long shot.

          • Zack

            At least the Bella are nice to look at

    • Zack

      I’m torn because I hated that rivalry so much, but it was blown off in such a BS way that I’m mad that I didn’t get closure to the awful storyline. If I had to sit through that crap, I at least wanted the closure. Without it I was tortured for nothing.

  • Paige just ran like a cat

  • Simon Veitch

    So the non televised jobber entrance gets the win? Not that I’m complaining, Paige is awesome!

  • Bryan N.

    Who would choose the title over going to the show?

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I finally got a 4g phone, and I love it. But…ironically enough, I can’t actually figure out how to use the WWE App.

    • Bryan N.

      Give it another 15 minutes, Cole will teach you

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        Greaaat, I actually need to listen to that for once. I got WWE Network on it though!

  • ldb

    The guys seem to keep playing up Seth has that chance for the belt whenever he wants. Any chance anyone think he goes for it before mania?

    • Seth

      It will belong to me…fufufufufufu…

      • ldb

        LOL

    • Simon Veitch

      Any time he wants, as long as Lesnar is actually there, so no, not likely to win the belt until WrestleMania at best.

    • no. but at Wrestlemania. that’s a different story

  • Big E. being a fantastic moron on the app.

    • Zack

      You gotta love the guy

  • Zack

    So this commercial…definitely not how computers work

    • Big D

      I thought that and the Nationwide commercials were the worst of the night. And the Kim Kardashian one too.

  • The Breaker

    I have to say, if they somehow make it a Triple Threat with Bryan like they did last year, I’d be against it. That would be so forced.

  • So we’re just about an hour in and we have seen about the same amount of wrestling than all of last week’s Raw. Could it be that someone at WWE is listening to the complaints?

    • Simon Veitch

      Yet only one clean finish… On a divas match…

      • I only expect clean finishes on the big PPV.

  • The entire New Day is golden on the app right now.

    • Xavier

      Can’t wait until they go militant and start cutting shoots on how evil capitalism is and how socialism is the answer. That would be freaking epic

      • I like them being funny too. Just wish Vince would let ’em do it live.

      • Seth

        ‘Rebel the constitution! It’s broken because you have broken it. You broke capitalism. It is time for a New Day for all.’

        • Xavier

          Lol I like that

          • Seth

            I try to be a decent promo. 😛

  • ldb

    I get my Lana Fix

    • Big D

      Lana…

  • Seth

    I get the feeling that Rusev-Cena match will have a dirty finish.

  • Bryan N.

    Mic feedback…

    • Big D

      This is the second time that it’s happened already. Someone’s getting fired.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rewound, and her arms said Drew McDonald, the name of the legend that passed today.

  • Ah, musical stylings from the classical composer, Feed Bach.

    • ldb

      I thought JBL had his hearing aid on too high

  • Seth

    A screeching on the microphone. Holy crap.

    • Zack

      They acted up during Rollins entrance too

  • The Breaker

    It’s so weird to see Cena competing for the US Title.

    • Zack

      It’s refreshing

      • The Breaker

        Says a lot about how Rusev has elevated the status of the title though. Now if only they could put the IC Title on a strong champion…

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Well, the Master of a certain anatomical part of a woman will be facing the IC champ soon…

  • savokes

    I wonder if not being in the main event is like being on vacation for Cena

  • Bryan N.

    Rusev. So Sooper, Much Athlete, Very Hero

  • Xavier

    Cena/Rusev is going too surprise a lot of people.

    • I think you’re right.

    • savokes

      I’m thinking so too

  • I think Cena is beginning to the transition from being the guy to allowing the new guys to try to be that guy.

    • Zack

      BOOO CENA! BECAUSE…REASONS!?

    • savokes

      And possibly being the fallback guy in case the youngins can’t hack It at first

      • Yes. carry the company if needed but support the guys that are running the place.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        A la HHH for a bit, Flair, and HH in the late 90s?

  • Simon Veitch

    For reference. Paige was one of Drew McDonald’s students when she was learning to wrestle.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Thank you Simon!

  • The Breaker

    Is it terrible that I popped for that video package of Cena getting destroyed?

  • Scott

    I am a kilo?

  • ldb

    CUe the Rocky 4 music. Cena win that belt back!

  • Rusev is beginning to die here.

    • Seth

      I think that went on a little too long for him on that one. Less is more sometimes.

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I like that they make it seem like Rusev actually looked into Cena’s career rather than aimlessly going for a top dog.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Which I love!

  • BlazeKing

    Oh, Rusev just talked crap about Cena’s “Ruthless Aggression”!!!

  • Big D

    Am I the only one that is sad that Rusev is getting better on the mic just because it will mean that we will get less Lana?

  • Xavier

    Cena does look pretty beat up lol

    • Big D

      That eye looks even worse than last week

  • i think that’s the 1000th time someone has said they will crush Cena’s spirit.

  • The Breaker

    Rusev is really hitting that Rosetta Stone! lol

  • Zack

    Why does Cena always have the black eye? Wasn’t it on the other eye last week?

    • Seth

      He told Nikki about her wrestling and acting again.

    • Simon Veitch

      Brie beats him

      • Zack

        hahahaha “Brie beats John Cena…but I never told anyone”

    • Big D

      It was the same eye

  • Bryan N.

    Cena with a shiner

  • savokes

    Wait, what happened to Cena?

    • Zack

      Curious of that myself

    • ldb

      ryback style kettle bell injury?

    • The Breaker

      He had another conversation with Nikki about having kids.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Got it 2 weeks ago on a house show.

  • Zack

    I get knocked down, I get up again! Piiisssinnn the niiiiight awaaayyyy

  • BlazeKing

    There we go.. Cena acknowledged his broken neck since a lot of people forgot it happened!

    • Big D

      But, did he win a gold medal with it?

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        Nah, it was just a broken neck. Not A BROKEN FREAKIN’ NECK!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And that is the key. Cena doesn’t have as many miles left on him as people think. I give him 5 active years, max.

      • Xavier

        I think so too. He’s been going balls to the wall for almost 13 years now with no real break, 10 as the top guy

      • Seth

        I think his hips are going to be the first thing that completely goes. I give him three full time years and then a few more in the process of slowing down.

      • savokes

        Do you think he breaks Flairs record? Should he?

        • Seth

          I think he will but he shouldn’t. Just an old school thing.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I think he does and should. I think he ties next year at Mania, as well as ties SCSA’s RR record, and picks up #17 by WM 34

  • savokes

    Kinda popped for that, not gonna lie

  • Oooh. Cena glare. Cena mad.

  • BlazeKing

    If Cena is an “old man” then Richard must fart dust then!!!

  • Bryan N.

    Don’t knock over Lana there twinkle toes

  • I love it when Cena gets ghetto.

  • Xavier

    Cena is always in such a weird place with fans. He gets overwhelming booed against Attitude Era wrestlers or guys that have AE qualities (Rock, Edge, Angle, HBK, HHH, Jericho) but gets overwhelming cheers against generation comtemporaries like Rusev, Umaga, Khali, Batista, Lashley etc etc. Anyone else ever notice that

  • Zack

    Idk why but I just expected Cena to go “You may be a super athlete, but at Fast Lane I’m going to be the superest athlete!”

  • Xavier

    Pretty good segment/promo by all involved

    • Cena said, “Homeboy”. You know it’s on now! Whenever he takes it back to 1989, you know it’s on!

    • savokes

      Agreed! Good intensity from both…Cena got his digs in but wasn’t corny with it

    • ldb

      Really had the old Hogan/vs foreigner feuds from back in the day. I loved those. John is really got that feel to me. The Old Man of the yard now.

      • Xavier

        Agreed. I wish they would that route with Cena more often. I’d love too hear cut more promos on guys like Reigns, Bryan, Ryback, Ziggler and say things along the lines of y’all ain’t ish until you guys beat me and talk about how he was running the block when they were still wet behind the ears in FCW or something like that

        • ldb

          AMEN! TO BE THE MAN WOOOOO! ….yOU GOT TO BEAT THE MAN! …….wOOOOOO

  • Sometimes I worry that Cena is going to have to be like Edge and be told he can do it anymore.

    • BlazeKing

      That’s what it’s going to come to. The guy already has hip problems too and he normally walks like it.

    • Simon Veitch

      And honestly, as much as that would suck from a personal standpoint. But he can look back on his career and be proud he did everything. Was top dog for a decade, even in retirement he can and probably will maintain his make a wish work and WWE PR work. In retirement the fans would hopefully show him respect for his career as well.

      • Jason

        In 20 years, Cena & HHH will walk out on stage with their walkers. Last one standing is new COO.

        • Simon Veitch

          Lmfao kudos to you for that comment.

          • Jason

            And Steph will be standing there as well with her……you know the rest

    • Xavier

      That appears to what will happen sadly.

  • Bryan N.

    Can’t really do stage destruction anymore with all of those L.E.D.s. that’d make a real statement

  • Seth

    It might’ve been even more effective if the last spot was just the one spot to the eye and you build concern over that. Jericho/Michaels in 09 got a ton of milage just off of going to the eye with little things. It’s just a way to try to get people to slow down and let things digest. Minor critique to a decent angle.

    • Zack

      That angle was the birth of the googley eye

  • The Breaker

    I’m surprised we got any contact, especially considering that they’re probably going to stretch this program through WM.

    • ron

      I remember when a 2 month program was a short one. The insrant gratafcation generation

  • Dustyn

    “Super Athlete” vs “Super Cena”

  • I’M HERE TO SHOW THE WORLD!!!!!

  • The Breaker

    I’m worried about Ziggler. He’s got no direction whatsoever.

    • Andrew

      none smh

    • Seth

      I get the feeling he’s going to turn heel.

      • Simon Veitch

        Will Bray turn him?

      • The Breaker

        That would be interesting. He’s got the word heel in his Twitter name, after all!

    • BlazeKing

      I kinda blamed Classic Swaggs for that kick to the head that derailed Dolph a while ago.

      • The Breaker

        I blame Creative.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And it was well warranted blame. I watched that tape COUNTLESS times, and the fault was solely on Swagger.

        • BlazeKing

          So, was that pun (solely) intended? ^-^

          • Jesse Sherwood

            ;D

  • Andrew

    this should be another good one!

    • Andrew

      even though he will lose smh

  • Maybe I’m just in a very good mood tonight, but this has been an excellent Raw

    • Zack

      Very wrestling heavy

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Feels like a HHH show.

  • Speaking of no real direction…

  • The Breaker

    And now he’s getting fed to Bray. -_-

  • Seth

    Bray and Dolph again this week? I know the match’ll be good if given time but…I don’t want a direct repeat here.

  • This time it wasn’t JBL Zack. LOL

    • Zack

      lol I still hate everyone

  • ldb

    Hey does anyone know what Bray calls all those fans with their cell phone lights on.?

    • Big D

      His fireflies

    • Jason

      Firefighters?

    • They never tell us. No clue.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      His Creepy Little B******s?

  • BlazeKing

    Bray has such a “Ministry of Darkness Undertaker” type of jacket!

    • Makes me wonder if we’re going to here some thunder and lightning tonight.

  • Zack

    Crowd is hot for this one. Good to see

  • Simon Veitch

    The fans were determined to be heard

  • Seth

    Some mat wrestling and then the brawling begins.

  • Scott

    Cant wait for the Taker/Wyatt staredown in the future

    • ldb

      My favorite entrance of all time. Just to hear that GONG!

  • Ziggler is not as good as people things.

  • The Breaker

    I’d rather Taker sit out WM this year, and have one final match at 32.

  • Jason

    Better character: Ziggler or Nicky?

    • BlazeKing

      I dunno… But what I do know is that Lillian needs to rib him by introducing him as “Nicky!” one good time, lol.

      • Jason

        Been waiting for that to happen actually! Or the crowd start chanting, “We want Nicky!”

      • Nah just play the spirit squads theme like they did on William Regal once with hsi Real man theme.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Kerwin White’s caddy Nicky. LOL!

  • Xavier

    How many of you guys would be in favor of seeing Ziggler & Ryback team up at Mania? I’ve heard rumors that it’s a possible scenario

    • Andrew

      ive heard that as well id rather see ziggler vs daniel bryan or maybe a sheamus but i guess i wouldnt mind that

    • Bryan N.

      I’m for it, so long as they give it a decent build and a credible story

    • Zack

      I just can’t see anyone for them to team against other than possibly Kane/Show

      • Xavier

        I agree

    • The Breaker

      Don’t like it. To me, that’s just them saying “We have nothing for Ziggler and Ryback, so let’s just have them team together and fill some time”

      • Zack

        Unfortunately that’s most tag teams

        • The Breaker

          Yeah, the tag division is pretty dismal right now.

      • Xavier

        I really wish they’d bring MITB back to Mania. I have a bad feeling that a lot of deserving guys will be left off the Mania card altogether

        • The Breaker

          I agree, but then what do you do with the MITB PPV? That’s become a huge event for WWE, and they probably don’t want to scrap it.

        • I don’t want MITB on WM. It’s prefect as a PPV.
          Andre The Giant Battle Royal

    • I think they had some goo chemistry on Smackdown. but I don’t think they will happen.

  • Bryan N.

    I haven’t caught it. -JBL didnt think I’d ever hear that sentence uttered

  • Jason

    Heh, 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. Everybody knows that. Well, did you know that Big Show flips more than a coin in the NFL?

  • savokes

    Think of this scene…Bray Wyatt doing his creepy spider walk towards a laid out Undertaker, who then just sits straight up, stopping Bray in his tracks with a WTF look on his face

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Holy……

    • Andrew

      goose bumps…

    • ldb

      gave me chills. Taker should have buzzards for his entrance. Like back in the day.

    • The Breaker

      That would be amazing, but that match would be impossible to book. Taker can’t lose two in a row, and Bray needs a win.

      • Jason

        Double count out with a rematch at the following PPV?

        • The Breaker

          Somehow I don’t think a Double Count Out would be well received at WM… lol

          • Jason

            Never stopped WWE from doing unpopular things before **cough** Rumble **cough**

          • The Breaker

            Haha, fair enough.

  • ldb

    B ray’s nose is busted

    • That trickle helps the aesthetic, actually.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Blood can do a lot of things. With Bray, it adds to and seems a natural extension of his character. He feels like a guy who’d love to bleed.

  • Bryan N.

    Ref got the gloves out quick

  • Jesse Sherwood

    OUCH! those collisions Bray does make me hurt every time!

  • BlazeKing

    For some reason, I can see Bray Wyatt and Baron Corbin as a credible tag team. I really think it could work.

    • I can’t see Baron Corbin as anything at this point. Still waiting to see some charisma from him.

      • The Breaker

        Yeah, but he’s still way better than Bull Dempsey.

        • They’re both useless as of now. That feud means nothing to me. It’s the only thing on NXT I wish would just go away.

          • BlazeKing

            Dempsey came out of nowhere and elevated a little too fast. Glad they dialed it back a bit.

          • That feud looks like bad indie stuff. I just can’t care.

          • BlazeKing

            Better Corbin than Eli Cottonwood, lol.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah, they aren’t going to steal the show any time soon. At least not together.

      • BlazeKing

        They’re trying to do just that now with his feud with Bull Dempsey.

  • Zack

    Some “This is Awesome” chants

    • Big D

      OMG, it’s ruining the match!

      • Zack

        hahaha I thought that too

      • Jason

        Based on the up votes, we can tell who reads the Ask WNW

  • Zack

    Holy clothesline Batman

  • Ohh!

  • Seth

    LARIAT!

  • Wrestling Hero

    RIP Seth Rollins main event push.

    • CJ Blaze

      What?

      • Wrestling Hero

        The naked Twitter pics.

        • Jason

          Did I miss something?

        • Big D

          Huh?

          • Wrestling Hero

            Check on Twitter someone hacked his Twitter uploaded nude pic of NXT diva. Seths Fiancee responded with naked pics of him. It is all on Twitter.

          • Big D

            They got it taken down pretty quick.

          • Wrestling Hero

            People still Tweeting them.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Hero, if you have a FB, message me on there to them. Need to verify the story myself before it gets posted.

          • Wrestling Hero

            I don’t have FB.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Twitter? I’m @MaxxStylez

          • Wrestling Hero

            No Twitter either.

            This girl has Rollins pics in her timeline

            @WWEAshleyy

            Zahra pic on this guys

            @clinteldorado

          • Big D

            It’s still on his WWE profile.

          • Jason

            I just sent you a message, Jesse

          • Seth

            NO! Nobody else should see my—oh wait I should stop. Urk…

          • Jason

            It was a picture of Zahara.

        • Andrew

          whaaat?

  • Simon Veitch

    Those last second turn around clotheslines of Wyatt’s are awesome.

  • Oh well.

  • Andrew

    how about an nxt ladder match for the nxt title! at mania

  • Zack

    I hope everyone enjoyed directionless heel vs. directionless face.

    • Bray has a direction.

    • Xavier

      I think the Taker/Wyatt rumors for WM31 are true

      • Zack

        Most likely but I won’t believe it until I hear the gong

  • Xavier

    Commentary really putting over his win streak. Taker/Wyatt is a done deal at this point

    • The Breaker

      They’re definitely setting the table for a potential Taker/Wyatt match at WM, but I won’t call it a done deal until I hear the gong.

  • Zack

    Remember when Ziggler was getting a massive push coming out of Survivor Series? Pepperidge Farm remembers….

    • LOL!!

    • The Breaker

      His career is just a series of stalled pushes. It sucks. =/

  • Jesse Sherwood

    JYD!!!

  • GRAB THEM CAKES!!

  • Xavier

    My man Junk Yard Dog. One of my all-time faves

  • Why they gotta show him beating up on Butch!?!?!

  • Bryan N.

    Great video package!

  • BlazeKing

    Because of JYD, getting “thumped” is actually a legitimate thing!

  • Seth

    JYD was so larger than life. It was a presence you can’t teach.

  • Zack

    So this happened on Twitter (reload for image). WrestleMania! Bring back the bra and panty match lol

    • Big D

      I wouldn’t expect that to be up for too long. Never mind, thought it was the Rollins twitter thing. As I was.

    • Seth

      Damn!

  • Summer Rae Dudley is really funny on the app right now.

    • BlazeKing

      Damn near sprayed beer everywhere!

  • ldb

    JYD was awesome. I got to see him live in my little podunk town almost 30 years ago. He always made me think of comic book character . He was so good. That voice, charisma, and working the crowd. RIP JYD

  • Bryan N.

    God, these cigarette smoker commercials…

  • Seth

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    • Xavier

      Hey man, don’t hate. He pinned you clean at the Royal Rumble

      • Seth

        I was booing Ohio State. Not Brock. If I booed Brock, he’d suplex me…again.

    • savokes

      At least he has the title with him hah!

  • savokes

    Baaaarock!

  • Big D

    Hey, he’s got the belt!

  • Brock’s checklist.
    Paul Heyman
    WWE World Heavyweight championship.

  • savokes

    I can’t believe they let that “deep” sign with a cross eyed Reigns

    • savokes

      Derp

  • Bryan N.

    Ooo Brian Williams diss

  • CJ Blaze

    Hey look, it’s Paul Heyman!

  • Seth

    Heyman would know a lie.

  • Xavier

    How would you guys book a Bryan/Lesnar match at Mania? Who would go over and would it be clean?

    • It would be impossible to book. Bryan can’t beat Lesnar believably.

    • The Breaker

      Ideally, I would put Brock over clean and have them rematch later in the year. But with Brock possibly not around, I don’t see any scenario working other than Bryan winning.

  • Jason

    For those questioning about the hack, the photos are still showing on the WWE profile for Seth Rollins: http://www.wwe.com/superstars/seth-rollins

    • Big D

      HAHAHAHA!

    • BlazeKing

      What hack if you don’t mind me asking? I’m clueless…

      • Big D

        Reportedly hacked Seth’s Twitter/Instagram and posted a nude pic of a NXT Diva.

        • Jason

          Someone hacked both Seth and his fiance’s Twitter posting a nude of Zahara on his and nudes of him on hers.

          • Seth

            Nobody should ever see this…

          • Simon Veitch

            Or perhaps Seth’s fiance found nudes that Rollins had and is getting some revenge. It seems a little suspicious that both of them would just get hacked.

        • BlazeKing

          I didn’t scroll down the profile… Now I see what Jason was talking about, lol. That is crazy!!!

    • Zack

      Hilarious it’s on WWE.com

    • Ashley

      Someone is going to lose their job overy that

  • BlazeKing

    I love how Heyman just said “Sam-moa”!

  • Mixed!

  • Bryan N.

    Very mixed reaction, wow

    • Xavier

      Ohio has been strange tonight

      • Bryan N.

        No kidding, it’s very odd

  • savokes

    Loud, Nos!

  • Scott

    WOW! HEYMAN PUT BRYAN OVER HUGE!!!

  • Seth

    Brock F5ing a helicopter…that would be one million buys.

  • Heyman could talk all night and I’d sit back and listen.

    • ldb

      forget gotta call saul…. Heyman should be a tv lawyer. He oozes slime.

  • Zack

    What was the point of using one of Brock’s appearance here?

    • Seth

      They saw they had extra ones after not using him for the entire fall?

    • Simon Veitch

      Good chance he’ll get involved later in the night.

  • Scott

    Damn I wish I could get paid hundreds of thousands to appear, say nothing, and leave

    • I’m thrilled Nancy didn’t talk. It is nice work if you can get it though.

      • ldb

        Brock Talking = Taker’s cameo in Suburban Commando

    • Brock’s next T-shirt

    • Now now, he did jog in place and jump into the ring.

  • Dustyn

    Has anyone else heard the recent rumours of WM33 (2017 being held in Minneapolis at the new Vikings Stadium (set to open in 2016). If this is true/if WWE does hold a future WM there, wonder how/if they would incorporate Lesnar, being his hometown.

  • Jason

    After tonight, Seth Rollins and Zahara will never be in the Hall of Fame. Some 8 year old might Google them in the future.

    • Xavier

      Neither one of them slept with Triple H so I’m sure Stephanie will give them a pass

  • K-Kwik and Road Dogg on the app.

    • Big D

      I think that’s the first time I’ve heard someone refer to Truth as such in about a decade.

      • You should be around more. it’s been referenced a lot.

  • Xavier

    A Goldust/Cody break up would of been huge last year. Now nobody really cares, I know I don’t

  • NEW DAY!

  • The Breaker

    I know we all wanted to see Cody and Dustin feud, but this just isn’t working…

    • Xavier

      Would of been epic last year. Neither one is over this year though

    • Yep. Too late. Way too late.

  • Bryan N.

    I believe this is where I tune out tonight, Better Call Saul is coming on. Catch you guys later!

  • Zack

    I stand by what I said last week, if they split Cody and Goldust but leave Cody as Stardust, I’ll be pissed

  • They’re getting a little but not much…

    • Seth

      Their speech and jabs kind’a died a miserable death.

  • Zack

    New day making it racist? They’re the “brothers” ….I see how it is

  • It’s Black History month any chance we see that turn for NEw Day during this month?

    • Big D

      I was thinking the same thing.

    • Xavier

      I hope so. I’d love too see them go the more Malcolm X/Black Panther route and become more militant

  • The Breaker

    The New Day need something… what do they call it… oh yeah, a gimmick.

    • They need to be let loose by Vince and company. Just let them be themselves. So far, so bad there.

      • The Breaker

        Big E and Kofi both have personality, but they never get to show it.

        • All three of ’em do. Let ’em show it. Why not?

          • The Breaker

            I’m not really sure about Woods. I didn’t see him in TNA, and I haven’t seen anything special out of him in NXT or since his call up.

          • He’s good when he lets go on the app.

      • Xavier

        That could very well be done by design though, that may be why they turn heel. They could use that to cut a shoot on Vince

  • I feel bad that Goldust is the one taking the squash losses

  • Zack

    Renee is so freakin cute. Just sayin

  • Big D

    In regards to the whole Rollins situation, I think it’s pretty obvious that this is Orton’s doing.

    • Zack

      RKO and boobies outta nowhere!

  • It looks like we’re going to have the Rhodes brothers match at this years WM. A year too late

  • I thought that was great for Reigns.

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Alright, I’m back. Didn’t get crap done though, too tired to focus.

    • You must be a WWE creative writer.

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        Don’t look at me for Royal Rumble! I uhh…I did the Triple Threat match!

  • Scott

    This makes me think Sting isnt there

  • Scott

    If Sting is in fact there to be live, I think he wont show up during the next segment and show up at the end to answer HHH

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    This is Phil Brooks talking to Paul Levesque!

  • BlazeKing

    Brie MOOOOO…
    *crashes*

    • Big D

      That’s one mode that I’d be happy to crash.

    • Seth

      Paige can get anything over now that she’s comfortable it seems.

  • Dustin Rhodes vs Stardust.

  • Triple H gets the jobber entrance!

  • Xavier

    We’re not getting Authority Triple H we are getting “The Game” tonight

    • savokes

      I like The Game…I dislike the COO

  • according to IWC HHH buried just buried Dolph Ziggler with his golden shovel.

  • Big D

    ANNOUNCEMENT: The boobies are off wwe.com. That is all.

    • Seth

      Breast news WWE could have right now.

  • The Breaker

    I hope the reason Sting is here is more than just a convoluted WCW vs WWE loyalty angle…

  • Xavier

    Sting/Triple H makes so much more sense then Sting/Undertaker. Glad creative went this route

    • savokes

      Agreed

    • Glad HHH fought for it. this is a fight he won.

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Quick! Pan to a vulture in the rafters!

  • savokes

    IN THE RAFTERS

  • The Breaker

    C’mon guy with the lights, get it right!

  • Great work by WWE!

  • Andrew

    love this!

  • The Breaker

    That wasn’t Sting. lol

  • Seth

    FAKE STING GETS HIS REVENGE FOR ALWAYS BEING BEATEN UP AND USED POORLY!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Damien Stingdow?

  • Xavier

    Well done.

  • GREAT!

  • BlazeKing

    LMFAO at the Flair drop that HHH did!

  • CJ Blaze

    This is awesome

  • Zack

    That was really well done

  • I accept! That was awesome!

  • savokes

    That was great!

  • Seth

    That was awesome.

  • Xavier

    Triple H should just ask Sting “Who are you”. I bet that’ll make Sting take his ball and go home

    • Tone

      can you dig it!

      • Xavier

        Lol I’m glad somebody got the reference

  • Ashley

    It was obviously not Sting there

    • Xavier

      It wasn’t, Triple H falling in fear was pretty funny lol

  • Joseph James

    Aww come on… I was begging for a death drop there.

    • Seth

      Gotta pay to see it.

      • Exactly!

      • Big D

        All for the low price of…$9.99!

  • Somebody has been studying the year Sting spent not talking in WCW building the Hogan/Sting story.

    • The Breaker

      Sting will have to talk at Fast Lane though.

      • Not guaranteed he will. He didn’t when he challenged Hogan for a match.

        • The Breaker

          I think he should. We need to hear from Sting why he’s been interfering in matches.

  • The Breaker

    Judging by the way he fell to the ground from a Sting lookalike, Trips should probably bring some backup when he meets Sting for real… lol

  • savokes

    All I can think of is the movie The Crow

    • Jesse Sherwood

      RIP Brandon Lee

  • Xavier

    Was that the fake Sting they used in WCW

    • Seth

      He finally got his revenge all these years after not being used well.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      JUMPIN’ JEFF FARMER!!!

  • The Breaker

    We get to see the Live Sex Celebration!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      With the blurred boob slip!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I miss Mae…

  • Seth

    That video package made me miss Edge and how he(especially as a heel) could get just about anything over.

    • Andrew

      i LOVED him as a heel

      • Jason

        He was one of the best heels I have seen. You couldn’t help but like him as a heel.

  • Jason

    Crazy stupid love show? Will Katie Vick be on it?

  • savokes

    Has Cena had a match since he won to bring Rowan, Ryback and Ziggy back?

    • The triple Threat title match.

      • savokes

        My bad, that’s right…after that though? They missed a RAW, then I don’t think he wrestled last week

  • Xavier

    Not sure if the IWC has realized this but they have gotten their wish with Cena. He’s been taking a backseat for awhile now in the main event. Only reason he won the title last year was b/c DB got hurt and WWE had to go too PLAN B

    • The Breaker

      They won’t pay any attention to that, because they’re too busy crapping on Reigns.

      • Zack

        And calling him the “new Cena” because they have to hate someone

    • Nah it’s just eaiser for them to complain then realize it.

    • savokes

      Preac brother

  • Xavier

    Hush now, Naomi is on

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    That did not sound like funk…

  • Seth

    Cesaro has one hell’va right hand. I think this pairing with Tyson Kidd being a weasel and Nattie being a jerk manager. This has TONS of potential.

    • Big D

      I thought they were going to do a Bullet Club-type thing when they had Rose with them.

      • Seth

        I think they changed their minds on Rose again.

    • Seems to remind me of another team about 20 years ago.

  • Zack

    The acting in that dinner thing was so awful, also lacking SO MUCH logic

  • Xavier

    Glad too see Cesaro getting some shine

  • BlazeKing

    I’m on a mission to get Tyson Kidd known as “The Fact Cat”. I won’t stop!

  • Seth

    Tyson Kidd’s attire is BRILLIANT by the way.

  • Nice!

  • ron

    a tag match with a little bit of a back story that is the first since since team hell no I think and I called this for championship at wm the first time I saw kidd and C together

    • Xavier

      Rhodes/Shield

  • savokes

    That was new

  • CJ Blaze

    The future title match is going to be awesome.

  • Seth

    Holy crap. Tyson Kidd just never ceases to amaze.

  • The Breaker

    I wish Cesaro took off more as a singles guy, but he and Kidd do make a rather formidable, albeit random (as most WWE teams are), tag team.

  • Cesaro and Kidd remind me a lot of the Hart Foundation.

  • CJ Blaze

    No mention of Rikishi/HOF yet?

    • After this match

      • CJ Blaze

        Gotcha. Makes sense.

    • Big D

      It’s coming up after this match.

  • Xavier

    What a Maneuver

    • Seth

      Thank you Xavier McMahon.

      • Xavier

        LMAO

        • Seth

          I actually didn’t hate Vince on commentary. He had his moments both good and bad but he did his job well enough.

    • The Breaker

      Vince! lol

      • Xavier

        Glad someone got the reference lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sorry guys for being away for a bit. I don’t write news articles often!

  • Seth

    Those crossfaces are nasty.

  • ldb

    I miss Mizdow. Every Raw needs more Mizdow.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’ll be here in about 10. Ascension hasn’t squashed anyone yet, right?

      • ldb

        I love it when he sneaks a high five to a fan behind Miz

  • Seth

    SUPERKICK OF DEATH!

  • Xavier

    Whatever happened to Tamina?

    • CJ Blaze

      Injury. Should be back soon.

  • Zack

    The ending of this match is a mess

  • The Breaker

    What did Uso get hit with? I don’t get why he was pinned.

    • Seth

      He fell on his dome after Cesaro shoved him and Kidd pinned him right away.

      • The Breaker

        It looked pretty weak, that’s all.

  • I miss the Kidd/Nattie storyline. Shame it didn’t take off. Could have worked well.

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Aww yeah, Rikishi time!

  • Zack

    It would have been smart to have the Usos win and then announce Rikishi. But ya know, logic isn’t WWE’s strength

  • The Breaker

    BIG KISH!

  • Seth

    That Rikishi dive off the top of the cage was crazy…

  • Xavier

    Does anyone remember the Fatu “Make A Difference” gimmick?

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      I think I recall trying to forget it. Looks like I succeeded!

      • Xavier

        LMAO

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I do!

    • ldb

      Yup. and the guys that cam after him. Went no where but he was good.

      • Xavier

        The Samoan Gangsta Party

  • Dustyn

    A true ASSet!

  • Big D

    How do they not show the end of the “Vince McMahon Kiss My Ass Club”?

  • Joseph James

    Damn. The whole family is getting a push.

  • Seth

    Dammit! That Roman derp sign appearing again just made me crack up too much…

  • Xavier

    I’d take a stinkface from Naomi anyday of the week

  • ldb

    YEAH MIZDOW TIME

  • The Breaker

    Remember when Kelly Kelly used to do the Stinkface? Never made any sense to me why that was supposed to be devastating…

    • Zack

      Devastatingly awesome

  • CJ Blaze

    Damien Sandow vs. Sin Cara is next.

    • Quiet beginning of a push for Sin Cara?

      • Seth

        Dunno. I think he’s more of a device or a prop rather than a beneficiary of this.

      • CJ Blaze

        I hope!

      • The Breaker

        It just seems like they’ve been using him when they need someone to get a win without actually benefiting from it.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Cara beat Miz last week, Mizdow will beat Cara this week to show the assistant is better.

          • The Breaker

            Well, he could just get distracted again.

  • savokes

    Does the Miz/Mizdow storyline have enough steam for a WM payoff?

    • Zack

      It would have been smarter to set up a tag team match at Fast Lane and have Sandow turn on him mid match, but they need to do SOMETHING because the slow turn is killing me

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Yokozuna’s in, the Wild Samoans are in, Rikishi’s in, Rock’s obviously going to be in…I think if you get a blood transfusion from an Anoa’i family member, it comes with a WWE contract.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It does?!?!?! I need to go to Samoa and cut myself open…

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        I wonder if you also get a peanut-butter complex (described by The Rock) and awesome tattoos as well…yep. Road trip to Samoa!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I’ll do without the tribal leader tat the Rock got, in the old ways of their tribe.

  • CJ Blaze

    So Sin Cara is the promotional tool this time around I guess?

  • Jason

    OMG! An NXT reference on Raw!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Thrice in one show!!!

  • BNZ segment tonight?

    • Zack

      I hope they ditch that

  • Seth

    I think an underrated part of Miz’s success as a heel is that he has the most punchable face…ever.

    • Hence the Moneymaker.

    • savokes

      I laughed hard at this haha

    • Jesse Sherwood

      True definition of a HORSE FACE!

  • Miz is great slime and Mizdow is great at being persecuted.

  • Zack

    Miz is underrated as a heel but I think his gimmick could use some tweaking

  • Xavier

    I kind of wish Mizdow came out on his own for this match to see how well he does without having Miz to play off of

    • The Breaker

      I say they should ride this out until their feud ends.

  • savokes

    So we’re at 1030…and no BNB OR more importantly, no Ambrose

    • CJ Blaze

      Could be next

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Is it just me, or is Mizdow a little chunkier than normal?

    • Seth

      I think he is. Guess being a Miz double also includes random weight gains since you don’t get Maryse?

  • JBL still doesn’t like Miz.

  • I LOVE this!!!!

  • Zack

    Miz just got everyone pissed by acting like a 3rd grade teacher

  • The Breaker

    “You’re from Cleveland” lol

    • Xavier

      Better then Columbus

      • Seth

        They both suck. 😛

        • Xavier

          Cleveland rocks

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Only in Drew Carey’s mind…

  • Seth

    Maybe I’m old school but…they have enough problems getting people to focus on the matches. This doesn’t help much.

  • Xavier

    LMFAO, gotta love the Miz

  • Seth

    LOL! Good one liner by Miz.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      But it is a fine!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Miz is oozing slime!!!

  • I think the Miz has become my favorite slime. He’s pulling this off brilliantly!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sandow cut on his neck.

  • Does Damien Sandow even remember his finisher?

    • Seth

      To be fair…it’s been almost a year since he’s had to execute something on his own like that.

  • The Breaker

    The only thing Miz was famous for in regards to the Figure Four was botching it…

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    SSHHH SH SHH! BRAY IS ON!

  • The Breaker

    Another Taker-themed promo!

  • Zack

    OK this is sealing the deal on Taker

  • The Breaker

    Well, guys, he could also be setting up a match with Kane. lol

    • CJ Blaze

      #Swerve

    • Zack

      don’t make me down vote you lol

    • Xavier

      LMAO how anti-climatic would that be

    • Jesse Sherwood

      *Gets CJ and Zack to give Breaker a Shield Powerbomb through a flaming barb wire table covered in thumbtacks and glass.*

      • The Breaker

        *takes the move and sits up like Taker*

        • Seth

          *Lariats Breaker while he’s sat up*

          • The Breaker

            *counters into Hell’s Gate*

        • Jesse Sherwood

          *Kicks him in the face a la Swagger on Ziggler*

          • The Breaker

            *gets Jesse future endeavored*

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Nope! I have an ironclad lifetime contract! MWAHAHAHA!!!

          • The Breaker

            *gives Big Johnny a Last Ride through Spanish Announce*

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Spider walks back up and hits the big collision*

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    The second I hear that gong, I’m going to scream like a six year old at Nintendo World.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    OMG… I NEED THE MATCH NOW NEED IT NOW NEEDITNOWNOWNOWNOWNOW!!!!

  • AMBROSE!!

  • Zack

    I like these Sheamus promos just for the Celtic music

    • Jason

      Being Irish myself, I love some good Celtic music

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’m not, and I do too. It has such a unique sound.

        • Jason

          Look up a group called Albannach

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye!

      • savokes

        I have to change my pants every time I hear bagpipes…and I’m Italian

  • Big D

    FELLAAAAAAA!!!!

  • Andrew

    lovin it!!!!!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    I think Sheamus is bald now. Anyone know for sure?

  • Xavier

    Glad Sheamus is returning. Top 5 worker in the company, very underrated

    • Seth

      I just want Sheamus to come back and kick the ass of many babyfaces.

  • I hope they make sheamus into something improtant. he’s a great talent.

  • savokes

    I see Taker being the only one “dark” enough to reference Sister Abigail’s soul, or talking to her in the afterlife…or something like that…and have it be believable

  • Axel on the app…being terrible

  • Scott

    Honestly who wins Taker/Wyatt

    • We do

      • Jesse Sherwood

        We all do!

      • Scott

        This is true!

    • Big D

      Might it be Taker’s last match?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I think so. A passing of the paranormal soul.

    • Simon Veitch

      Draw, both men beat each other to a pulp and go out together. That way bray is set up as a major threat to the WWE and Taker shows he’s still got it without burying Wyatt or going under again like last year.

    • The Breaker

      I think Taker should. But Bray also needs to get put over in defeat.

    • Andrew

      no clue taker cant lose 2 in a row but the same time bray needs to go over so maybe after the match he attacks taker or something to make him strong

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That’s the thing. This looks to be Taker’s last year, and if so, he should go out on top. But knowing Taker how we do, especially after last year, he would want to put over Bray as a force to be reckoned with for years to come.

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      WE…THE PEOPLE!

  • Crickets

  • The Breaker

    Axel has gotten more mic time in the past couple weeks than he has in years.

    • And no clue what to do with any of it

      • The Breaker

        Well it’s hard for him to get over when he’s booked to look like a loser.

        • It’s even harder when he has the charisma of a kitchen sponge

          • The Breaker

            I agree that he really needs to work on sounding more natural on the mic.

  • Seth

    #Ambrosewillkickyourass

  • Zack

    Is this what Ambrose has been reduced to?

  • BNZ Segment incoming.

  • Seth

    I think Axel might be better being a stoic on the microphone rather than trying to sound intense because when he tries it sounds like he tries too hard and comes off as cartoonish.

  • savokes

    Ambrose…main eventing with Rollins, to feuding with Wyatt and now down to Axel…oy vey

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Ambrose is in a throwaway, Harper and Rowan nowhere to be found…

    • Simon Veitch

      Way to bury the best hey?

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        They really are!…oh, and Axel’s there too.

        • Simon Veitch

          All we need now is an Alicia fox run in and a Bo Dallas return

  • savokes

    Hey Xavier, where’s your man Swagger been?! Lol

  • Zack

    Ambrose wins but only when fighting the undercard

    • savokes

      There’s undercard…then there’s Axel

    • The Breaker

      It’s really sad when WWE doesn’t know what to do with their mid-level guys, even when they’re red hot.

  • Find Ambrose something to do now, please. No more entanglements with Curtis Hawkins.

  • Stoney

    Curtis Axel is living proof that just because someone comes from a prestigious wrestling family, doesn’t mean they will be big

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      What about that one Samoan wrestler that was a part of Legacy for like three weeks?

      • Simon Veitch

        You mean Manu? We don’t discuss Manu here…

      • Stoney

        I believe his name was Manu, that also goes for Ted Dibiase jr, Wes Brisco, Harry Smith, David Flair, Grandmaster Sexay/Brian Lawler, Erik Watts

  • I still miss the Headlock Driver as Dirty Deeds.

    • Scott

      Why did it change?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Honestly, I think it changed because there were a couple of other similar moves, like Adam Rose’s. Honestly, I like the Cactus DDT better because it looks like it has more impact.

        • To me the headlock driver looks better but yes the party foul may be a reason for it….

  • Zack

    I’ve said it before I’ll say it again, WWE needs the World Heavyweight Championship AND WWE Championship. More room for growth

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    The %$&* does TMZ even stand for?

    • Ashley

      Thirty mile zone

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        I have literally no clue what that means either. Sounds like a sports term.

    • The name TMZ stands for thirty-mile zone, the historic “studio zone” within a 30-mile radius centered at the intersection of West Beverly Boulevard and North La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, California.

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        And now I know, and am ashamed to know that.

  • The Breaker

    I actually kind of like the BNZ gimmick. lol

  • Seth

    I think BNB and Ambrose going after one another for a while will be really good for both of them and the IC belt.

  • I am loving this long streak of not having to Bo-lieve!!

    • Jason

      Don’t hold your breath! He just returned this past weekend at Live events.

  • Xavier

    Raw has left a lot to be desired. Not good considering this is Mania season

    • Andrew

      agreed a orton return would help plenty though

  • Xavier

    Anyone think Seth Rollins will face any punishment for tweeting pics of a naked chick?

    • The Breaker

      I hear he was hacked, so no, he shouldn’t, if that is indeed the case.

    • Ashley

      Sounds like he was hacked.

    • savokes

      I guess he can always say he was hacked…not to mention he’s got some dong pics out on the Internet now

      • Jason

        Is that what was hanging there? I couldn’t find my magnifying glass to see clearly enough.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It happened in the hour before the show. Plus there are a few suspect things here.

      • Xavier

        Who tweeted pics of him? Was it the same chick that had pics tweeted from his account?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          No. His fiancee Instagrammed them.

          • Xavier

            Why would she do something like that

          • savokes

            Who knows! But apparently, it’s pretty unmistakably him

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Very much so. Face in the first one.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No idea if it was a hack or intentional. But those are scenarios.

          • Simon Veitch

            My theory is she saw the pic and possibly posted zahras pic on Rollins Page to out him as a cheat. No evidence to back this up, just a theory. Then added insult to injury by posting his nudes herself.

            Could just both be hacked I guess. But I don’t buy that.

          • Xavier

            What a soap opera

          • Simon Veitch

            Hahah I’ll say. If that’s what happened, it could be interesting to see what happens.

          • My theory is Rollins got hacked by his finance. Probably found the pictures on his phone posted them on his account and then posted the pictures of him on her instagram to claim she was also hacked.

          • Simon Veitch

            That’s my belief

        • Simon Veitch

          Nah it was Rollins fiance who posted pics of Rollins.

    • Simon Veitch

      A new nxt Diva as well. Without knowing the true details of what happened. There’s claims of a hack but I’m sceptical of it. I’m sure there will be repercussions somewhere. Just hard to say what they’ll be

  • Titus’ charisma again being wasted on the app…

    • Xavier

      guys like Titus should just go out there and wing it, I mean it’s not Vince can punish him by depushing him seeing how he’s not being used anyhow

    • The Breaker

      He should’ve used that charisma when he started his singles run as a heel.

      • What run? He never got a run.

        • The Breaker

          Well, a cup of coffee? lol

  • Andrew

    kane used to be so imtimidating and badass now not so much smh

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    And their opponents…Seth Rollins and THE UNDERCARD!

  • savokes

    When Orton comes back, he can NOT go back to the authority!! He will instantly fade into bolivion

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Got a big Shield vibe there for a moment…

  • The Breaker

    *starts singing Orton’s theme*

    • Andrew

      yes haha

    • “Hey, hey, nothin’ you can say…nothin’s gonna take what you’ve done to…” oh, sorry…

      • The Breaker

        If Orton had it his way, it would’ve been “This fire burns… always…” 😛

  • Scott

    And Reigns goes to take a nap

  • Jesse Sherwood

    GERMAN!!!

  • Seth just buried the Rumble even more by saying Reigns isn’t important.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    2 Germans!

  • There are some opportunities for some Out of nowhere RKO’s.

    • Andrew

      yep is the wwe smart enought to do it?

  • Dag! Bryan’s chest. WOW!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Hey guys, if the J&J security thing sticks around long enough, you think they’ll be remembered fondly? This went from a neat little cameo to almost a career resurrection.

  • Seth

    There are some people who don’t have good chemistry with Kane but Daniel Bryan is one that DOES. Just an observation that should be noted.

  • Zack

    I wish Rollins would just make his move a powerbomb

  • Why are they making Reigns a non-factor?

  • savokes

    interesting

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I found Rowan!

  • The Breaker

    It’s the remnants of Team Cena!

  • Wouldn’t this be a DQ?

    • The Breaker

      Maybe because those guys aren’t legally tagged in?

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      *shrugs*- The WWE Creative Team

  • Seth

    What constitutes a DQ anymore?

    • Zack

      lol the ref is like “meh whatever”

  • Xavier

    These fans are dead

    • Zack

      I would be too

  • Zack

    What is even happening? Like where does this all lead? It seems pointless

  • savokes

    They used Rybacks music to enter

  • Seth

    As soon as it seemed like they died, Daniel Bryan’s feet just fired them back up again.

  • Xavier

    Anyone else see this dude in red in the front row. Dude been cracking me up all night

  • It’s amazing how the crowd hates Super Cena and now Super Reigns, but love Super Bryan

  • Ashley

    So this means no RKO? Very disappointing

    • Andrew

      very!!

  • Seth

    And this helps Roman how?

    • Big D

      Helps with his heel turn

      • Xavier

        A heel turn now won’t do anything but hurt Reigns in the long run

        • The Breaker

          The Rock went heel when the fans weren’t buying into him, and look what happened.

            Rock wasn’t moving the merch that Reigns was when he was a face in 96. Reigns has lots of fans

          • The Breaker

            The times are different now though. Looking at merch sales doesn’t really give you the pulse of fan opinion. And if Reigns comes into his own as a heel, I bet he would sell even more merch.

          • Yes but he was not being pushed as the Next big thing yet when that happened. Reigns is being pushed as the next top star right now.

          • The Breaker

            Possibly, but it’s a similar scenario. And WWE has kind of backed off of making Reigns look like Superman lately.

          • Xavier

            We’ve literally had like 6 or 7 guys turn heel for Daniel Bryan. That angle is beyond old now

          • The Breaker

            Well this is the corner WWE keeps backing themselves into.

          • Xavier

            They could have easily avoided it. Lazy booking

          • The Breaker

            Yep. There’s no excuse for the booking atrocity that was the Rumble.

  • Xavier

    WWE is sabotaging Reigns big time here with that finish

    • savokes

      Totally agree

    • Simon Veitch

      Unless…

  • The Breaker

    Well, no Orton…

  • YES!

  • The Breaker

    Heat on Reigns… no surprises there.

  • Seth

    Roman went a little too high on that spear.

    • Zack

      I noticed that too, I think he saw success with doing that to Show last week so…

      • Seth

        Daniel Bryan isn’t Big Show dammit!

  • Dear God no Heel Turn from Reigns please.

    • Big D

      Request denied.-God

      • Seth

        Hi God. I’m an Atheist…

      • It’s the worst thing they could do to him right now.

    • Heel ,babyface, I just want Reigns to be badass

    • Xavier

      Would be one of the dumbest decision ever on WWE part

  • The Breaker

    It doesn’t matter if Reigns does it cleanly… he will NOT get cheered for beating Bryan. He has to go heel.

    • Zack

      I think he will actually get booed more if he does beat him clean

      • The Breaker

        Any scenario where Reigns goes over Bryan will get booed. Even if Bryan shakes his hand and does the YES chant. The fans didn’t buy it when The Rock tried it, and they won’t do it for Bryan.

  • Ashley

    Well a very disappointing Raw from start to finish

  • savokes

    This show ended with a “bum bum bum bummmmm” (think price is right)

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    This Raw…it was not worth cutting my nap short for.

  • Scott

    Pretty weak ending. They have gotta turn Reigns heel after that

  • “Raw”‘s ending was a weak pepper.

  • Randy’s not coming back until Fast Lane.

    • Andrew

      if he shows up at fast lane

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Guess I’m off to do my mini-review. Feel kinda bad for stalling that to watch Raw. Work was more entertaining. Night everybody.

  • Zack

    Tonight’s Raw was very weak. It had plenty of wrestling which was refreshing, but in the end there was no direction and a lot of wasted time. Brock Lesnar appeared on Raw for no reason, yet they always talk about not “wasting his dates” isn’t that why he didn’t wrestle for 6 months after winning the title? The main event ended with Team No Cena fighting The Authority but there was no logic behind it. It was a sloppy show.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Miz’s appearance on Sirens is NOW!

  • I have never watched this before. I don’t know how much more of this I have in me.

    • Zack

      It’s actually a very funny show

      • I’m trying. I haven’t given up yet.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Miz was great!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’s the end of Miz. You can turn away Botch.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well guys, thanks for a great night! Close to 1200 on the Road! Let’s keep the 1000+ ball rolling next week!

  • back to watching Sister Princess and playing the Visual Novel Cross Channel.

  • Xavier

    Alright guys, I’m calling it a night. Ya’ll have a blessed one
