Backstage Segment

Trip – Bottom line, that’s the situation. I know you want to be WWE WHC, but Bryan isn’t here tonight. The bigger problem on their hands, The Shield. You might not see it, but if they’re willing to attack me, they’re not going to let either one of you at the WWE WHC. I’ve been dealing with them for a long time, and they remind me of us. Together, I don’t know if there’s anybody who can stop them, that’s the problem.

Steph – I do, and I’m looking at them.

Trip – That’s the thing, I said it before, I’ll say it again. If the three of us are on the same page, you know as well as I do, nobody, that includes The Shield, nobody can stop us.

Batista – That’s all great and everything, but all I want right now is to be Champ.

Orton – I think I’ve proven without a doubt that I’m the greatest Champion of this or any generation, but I’m with Dave on this, you’re on your own.

Sandow – Regardless of how any of you feel about me, or how any WWE Superstar feels about me, I am the most deserving person in the WWE. (mixed) I am not finished talking!

Big Show’ music hits.

Sandow – No, fine, sit down, you can send out whoever you want, shoot of fireworks, I’m not going to be silenced. You are all going to stand out here and listen to every single word I have to say! Not going to be silenced by anybody. I’m a former MITB contract holder. I was seconds away from being World Champion, and you are all going to sit there while I get this off my chest!

Big Show’s music ends, and he’s in the ring.

Sandow – Show, if you have anything to say, now would be the perfect time to keep it to yourself, I’m not finished. You are all going to boo me for that? (boo) And you’re all going to cheer for this?

Pointing at Big Show who gets huge cheers. Big Show stands quietly in the corner, hands folded.

Sandow – Why? Because he’s a giant? Because he comes out, he smiles, and he shakes all of your hands? Ever time I walk down that ramp, you should all be bent over with your arms outstretched, begging to touch me! (heat) Because I deserve it! (heat) I have earned it! You don’t think I’ve earned it?

Heat and negativity, but a small contingent of fans chanting, “You deserve it!”

Sandow – What about you? (Big Show) Yes, what about you Show? What do you have to say about all this.

Big Show rolls his eyes to the side and shakes his head.

Sandow – Exactly what I thought, I deserve it and there’s no one who can say I do not deserve it. Deep down, (pointing right to Big Show’s chest, even touching him) you know the truth. You look at me and you see the future of the WWE. You look at me, you see a future Champion. You look at me and you see greatness!

Commercial

In Ring Segment

Bray lights his lantern and tells Birmingham that, “We’re here!” The fans clap with their music as The Wyatts head to the ring. The lights are out, but an eerie spotlight on the ring.

Bray – Society as a whole has become this vile and putrid thing. You, do as your told, so says the man. Hahahaha! You see what they want you to see, and you feel whatever it is they want you to feel! I am different! Where you see a blank canvas, I see a beautiful painting! Where you hear silence, I head a symphony. I have a thousand faces and a million names. Seducer! Accuser! Destroyer! And you may call me by whatever name you see fit, but know this, understand this, I have never once lied to you! But we all know who has, don’t we. Hell, John Cena has made a career of lying to you all. He earns your trust, hidden behind his porcelain smile, but don’t be fooled, he is no man, he is beast!

Bray removes his hat and drops to one knee.

Bray – And don’t you worry about this kids, I’m not going to let him do this to you anymore. I got him, I got him right where I want him, (standing, hat on) up against the ropes, and on the edge and all he needs is that one last little push. Hahahaha. Abigail should be my sword through this crusade, but I do not wish to slay this monster, not yet. Right now, I just wanted to come out and play. How about it John? I know you’re back there.

Cena’s music hits and the lights come up. He comes out to the stage, mic in hand.

Cena – Come out and play? What a great idea, Bray, but the last thing I need is another push, nobody wants to see that!are you guys ready to have some fun? (pop) Me too! These guys come to the ring, and always so serious. Why so serious, man? You tried your best at WrestleMania to bring this monster out, but I’ve got news for you, it doesn’t exist. I want to try something different with you today. I want to have some fun, what do you guys say? (serious pop) I don’t judge anybody, but looking at The Wyatts, I think if I can just get them to happy hour, they’d be the life of the party! Rowan, look at you man, I bet you have jokes for days. And Harper, you’d be the type of guy who’d go streaking right through the quad. Bray, I gotta tell you, it takes a man’s man to wear white pants. You got that Hawaiian shirt, the Michael Jackson leather glove. This guy is secretly a ladies man! We get him a couple drinks, loosen him up, get him around some of these Birmingham honeys. (pop) You all know how the story goes, role tide. (the fans are wild!) You see Bray, these people like to have fun, a good time, so we’re going to put a smile on your face, which leads me to your family. I think we should get everything out in the open. You always talk about this Sister Abigail, and I always wonder if she’s real or not. So I did my homework and got on the Google Machine and I found her on MySpace! Ladies and gentlemen, I bring to you Sister Abigail Wyatt!

On the tron is Bray dressed as Aunt Jemima.

Cena – Look at her, her beauty. Look at her facial hair. Bray, you should be happy. I look at you, then I look at her, and I think, man, what does Bray Wyatt’s mom look like? So after a quick search I found her on Tinder. She is one hot mama! Ladies and gentlemen, Bobby Jo Wyatt!

On the tron is an old lady’s body sitting in a chair, with Harper’s head shopped onto it.

Cena – That seductive stare. I’d take her out to a steak dinner, and I’d even call her back! But guys, a congratulations are in order, because they have a new member, born one month ago. A beautiful baby girl. I had to call TMZ for the first ever photos, but I did. Tonight I bring you, Chastity Lynn Wyatt!

A baby in a small rocker, but with Rowan’s head.

Bray – Oh John, you are hysterical! I can’t get enough of it John! I love that anytime any serious threat gets in your face, all you know how to do is make jokes about it!

Cena – So, you want serious, fine. You should know that I can get serious just as good as anyone. At WrestleMania you put my back against the wall, made me fight for everything, you made me gets serious and your ass found out that when John Cena gets serious, Bray Wyatt gets beat! Be careful what you wish for Mr. Wyatt, because you got it, but this time the tables are turned. What happens if you’re defeated again? You’re the desperate man. You will fight for everything, and I am going to force you to do something you haven’t done since you stepped foot into the WWE. Every single week you talk, and you talk, and you talk, but without your family, you cannot back up what you say! You take those two crazy Santa Claus wannabes, you’re not the eater of the world, you’re the world’s largest Cinnabon! So, here’s what we’re gonna do, we’re going to force you to stand on your own two feet, and force you to fight like a man, by yourself. You want serious, here’s a serious challenge, Extreme Rules, you face me inside a steel cage!

Bray – Hahahaha! I like that John, I like that. You don’t even realize, we’ve been playing catch with knives! Sooner or later, one of us is gonna be stuck, and it’s gonna be real bad John. I have a question for you John, how can you be sure that it won’t be you? You wanna see fun John, you want me to have a good time? Well, I ask you, my brothers and sisters, right here in my backyard, we will no longer allow this fallacy to command us, this is my world! It belongs to me! (mixed reaction) (singing) He’s got the whole world in his hands, he’s got the whole wide world in his hands, he’s got the whole world in his hands, he’s got the whole world in his hand. DEP!

Backstage Segment

Steph – Your job performance has been less than satisfactory, to say the least. Especially last week when you let your personal emotions get in the way of dealing with The Shield. Things are getting way out of hand.

Kane – I apologize for any distractions I may have caused, and it…

Steph – You know Kane, I don’t want to hear it. When Hunter and I hired a Director of Operations, we thought we chose a man with no moral code. We thought we chose a man who could truly lead, who could take charge, take no prisoners. Instead we take a leave of absence and you quibble with people of far lesser intellect than you. And we ask you to take care of Bryan three different times you fail.

Kane – Steph, I think you’re being less than objective…

Steph (right down in Kane’s face) – Shut up! You are pathetic. You’re weak, you’re a shell of what you used to be. You used to be the Big Red Machine! You used to be a monster. You used to make children scream and women cry if you even looked their way. What happened? What happened to the Devil’s favorite demon? What happened to Kane?

Kane from his seat seething, staring down at Steph, breathing heavy. He steps over, looks at his mask in the glass box.

“Put it on!” chants

Kane removes the glass, grabs his mask and holds it up.

Kane – I’m going to eviscerate Bryan and send him to the depths of hell!

Steph breaks into an (almost) evil smirk.

Recap of Warrior in the ring last week on RAW.

Warrior – No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every mans heart one day beat their final beat, their lungs breathe their final breath, and if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others, it makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit will be immortalize by the storytellers, by the memory of those who honor him and make the the running the man did live forever. You, you, you, you are the legend makers of Ultimate Warrior! (pop) In the back I see many potential legends, many with Warrior spirits, and you will do the same for them. You will decide if they lived with the passion and intensity, so much so that you will tell their stories and make them legends as well. I am Ultimate Warrior, you are The Ultimate Warrior fans, and the spirit of Ultimate Warrior will run forever!

They show one of Warrior’s favorite sayings on the screen.

“You must show no percy…
…Nor have any belief whatsoever
in how others judge you…
…For your greatness will silence them all”

King says Warrior was a loner, but always intense.

Batista sets up, but Ambrose up and attacking. Batista bomb on Rollins.trp pulls Ambrose up by his hair. Batista bomb / RKO on Ambrose, and it looked lovely. Ambrose flops like a fish as Trip grabs a mic. They mock Reigns’ crawling at Trip. Trip yells at him to ‘come on’ and ‘show me’!

Trip – Believe in Evolution!

Another music twang, then Trip hits the pedigree on Reigns. Trip between Orton and Batista, arms up, posing across the ring, over the prone bodies of The Shield.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And before we really begin, let’s take a moment to remember Warrior one more time. He will be missed.

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

    Hey, we’re starting early! What do you have to say about Raw Is Warrior?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I know that WWE is going to do right here and give him a great memorial show. RIP Warrior.

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

        I’m really excited about this.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Also, we will see the start of a Tournament to crown a No. 1 contender to Big E’s IC Title!

  • Danny Philippi

    An hour early? PHENOMENAL!
    How’s the WNW Nation doing?
    I am doing well. Watching 1997 Spring Stampede.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We are starting them early starting this week based on overwhelming fan support the last few weeks! This is all thanks to you guys!

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

      It was mentioned last week, and I’m usually right here, so it makes sense to start early!

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

      I started at Bash At The Beach 96, and I’m past Halloween Havoc 98 right now. Working my way through WCW PPVs, and falling in love with Saturn, Booker, Jericho, and so many others.

      • David Jr.

        Talking about old WCW Pay-Per-Views, did you see the article on a 1991 WWF house show I went to as a 10 year old boy?

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          I did and loved it! I thank you for sharing that wonderful story

          • David Jr.

            It was a little sad writing it, when you think Ultimate
            Warrior, Mr. Perfect, British Bulldog, Hercules Hernandez, Earthquake and Big
            Boss Man are no longer with us.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Good Evening Guys. How are you all doing?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And… THANKS AGAIN to the WNW Army for helping us set a NEW Record last week with 1783 comments! That marks the highest comment count EVER on WNW!

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      Yes thank you to all. More importantly for turning into my Total Divas thread which is way cooler than Raw, NXT, Main Event, Smackdown and WrestleMania ;)

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

        Like the back of Rick Steiner’s singlet said – Bite me!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Turning heel on us huh? *Piledrives Matt into florescent light tubes*

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          I can’t turn heel on you guys! I love y’all too much. But seriously, almost every thread we do has broken records this past 10 days so thank you to all our loyal readers.

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

      All of our Open Thread numbers seem to be up, but nothing like Raw last week. So proud of you Jesse!

    • Danny Philippi

      1783. What a year that was. Beating the Brits.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    HI GUYS I’M HERE!!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    What are you going to watch this Thursday night?
    A. TNA Impact
    B. WWE Legends House
    C. WWE NXT
    D. Stanley Cup Playoffs

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Impact. I catch NXT on Hulu, and Legends House will wait.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      My hockey teams don’t start until Friday, so A, B, C

      • Danny Philippi

        Who are you a fan of?
        Hope it’s not the Penguins.

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          Red Wings and Bruins are my two favorites, in that order, and they’re starting off the Playoffs against each other! Going to be so awesome. I’m IN Detroit and have a Wings shirt on now for early support!

            HEAD!

            I remember using this as part of a birthday gag on air last year.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It was one of my favorite intros to a theme.

          • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

            who there, no need to get perverted

      Snow is one sexy man.

    • Danny Philippi

      And Tim White as referee. Andre’s buddy.

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

    I hope everyone enjoys the show tonight. I’m saddened that i won’t get to watch the show tonight. and that I can’t go to the show tomorrow.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Why aren’t you watching tonight?

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

        I have to leave at 7:45 to go to work.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Dang! And if you lived on the way and I had the money, I’d have taken you to SD!

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

            Thanks. It is what it is. Something always comes up when I want to go to one of the shows. whether it’s work, or school, or not being allowed to drive to Nashville. I’m used to it now.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      At least you popped in to say hello. Thank you for that

  • packerpf

    Number 1 contender tournament tonight for Int’l title; Who all do you think will be in it? I think Cesaro for sure, but who else?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Cesaro in it, and to win it.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      I have a feeling Thwagger will win it after wnning it for a moment this weekend

      • packerpf

        ya I figure he’ll either be in the final or cost cesaro, I hope wwe doesn’t go that way though.

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          I hope they don’t do what they did with Ziggler in having a cool tournament only to have Big E virtually squash. We need a title change or at least a cool program.

          • packerpf

            we don’t necessarily need a title change, but I understand the move, the use of Big E has been subpar imo, but with the heat it makes sense.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I hope not. Thwagger needs to go the way of Bob Holly, into obscurity.

    • Danny Philippi

      Alexander Reusev.

        how are you doing jesse!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I’m doing pretty good! Raw always brings out the best in me!

            oh thats good

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      yo!!!

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Hey Guys! Does anyone else think ADR will win the tournament? ive been hearing rumors of a fued with Big E and he looked pretty strong at the Mania Battle Royale.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      I hope he wins a pink slip

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

      Please, no, almost anyone but ADR!

      • Yazan Hamdan

        Cmon he’s not THAT bad :P

        • Jesse Sherwood

          No, he’s worse!

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

          He’s much, much worse! What an epic fail!

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          yes he is

    • Jesse Sherwood

      ADR needs to go the way of the Gobbledy Gooker!

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      RVD

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

        That would make some sense, and possibly a great match, but they’re both faces.

        • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

          I know. I’m hoping.

      yo!

      • savokes

        Ready for a good Raw?

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          Very much so. You?

          • savokes

            Seeing as how I missed last week and the record setting night, I am DEF geared up for this night

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Savokes! Great to see you man!

      • savokes

        You too Jesse! How are you doing on this fine night?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Pretty darn good! Raw knocks me up a few notches! My migraine is almost gone!

          • savokes

            Migraines are the worst! But good that Raw keeps you pumpin

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It’s you guys that bring me up! WNW is the fuel to my rocket ship!

          • savokes

            DEF!

  • Andrew

    so about cesaro im pretty sure hes a tweener right now but no doubt he should be a babyface despite being with heyman right now so will they wait to turn him face or no i think it should happen sooner rather then later

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

      The fans are loving Cesaro, but he’s running with Heyman. I think he will stay more face-ish, but only time will tell.

      Personally, Cesaro was the best pick for Heyman Guy!

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

        one I suggested and was laughed at for it not making sense because Cesaro was “face”

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

          I wouldn’t have thought it would work with Cesaro being so face-ish lately, but it worked on Raw. Only time will tell which way he will land.

      • Andrew

        i agree with that but with the fans starting to cheer for him more and more he should be a face imo.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Already doing Warrior Tribute stuff

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

    Maybe some people need to Bo-lieve in IC Tournament winner.

    • packerpf

      haha i’d love to see him make his re emergence during the tourney

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

      That’s a creative thought.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Or hop on The Exotic Experience!

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        which is physically at raw

  • Xavier

    What’s good everybody

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Xavier!!! Missed you last week!

      • Xavier

        Missed you guys to bro, my work schedule was crazy last week. Working on a oil rig produces some real crappy hours sometimes lol

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

          Oy, I imagine. Glad you’re back.

          • Xavier

            Good to be back :-) how you been?

    • Scott

      Whats up man!

      • Xavier

        What’s good bro

        • Scott

          Just looking forward to Raw!

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      What’s up my dude!!

      • Xavier

        Nothing much man, just ready for some RAW as I’m sure everyone else is as well

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          you know it!!!!!

    • savokes

      Hey man!! beautiful night for some RAW!

      • Xavier

        Yessir

  • The Breaker

    Evening, ladies and gents.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Breaker! It is a night of returns!

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        Spoiler alert

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Xavier and Breaker were out last week when we broke the record. We would have broke 2000 if they were here!

          • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

            and Alex G

          • savokes

            I was out as well

          • Jesse Sherwood

            AYE! So 2000 tonight, RIGHT???

          • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

            no excuse not to

          • Scott

            Why OHHHH HELL YEEEEAH!

          • savokes

            Agreed!!

          • The Breaker

            Dangit, I missed a record? Not at all surprising, considering it was a post-WM RAW, and it also kept up the tradition of being a great show.

      • The Breaker

        WNW….

        I’m here.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          DEP!!!

  • packerpf

    I hope rusev is in the tourney just so we can see his hot arm candy

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

      Huh, she does nothing for me.

      • packerpf

        as long as she remains in her place she is great; plus I like the female valets who are female valets and don’t try to get in the ring where they are horrendous *cough* summer rae *cough*

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

          She’s on the top of the hated list in my house. She’s even more hated than Evil Marie.

  • Scott

    WWE really needs another great Raw tonight. Been a lot of negative vibes going on with Taker being beaten and the passing of Ultimate Warrior.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed Scott. Tonight will at least have some memorial aspect to it for Warrior.

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

        I’m worried that it will be a really sad Raw, but they need to do something big for Warrior.

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          if they do the sit down interviews like with Owen and EG…I’m crying the whole night

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

            I kind of home they do, at least some, but it would be hard to get through.

          • Scott

            Yeah it was heartbreaking to see him say what he said to his kids at the hof and now hes gone

          • Scott

            I remember when Owen died and I felt like someone punched me in the nuts

          • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

            I remember that Raw very vividly

          • Scott

            Was really hard for me because I met him as a kid. He, Taker, and Paul Bearer were the nicest people in the world to me that night

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I will be too. Those are what gets me.

      • Scott

        I was shocked when I first read about it on here. But looking back my wife was in bed with me watching his hof speech and she made a comment that he looked uncomfortable and out of breath

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

          I actually woke my hubby up and told him. He was in shock as well.

    • packerpf

      no doubt! the lead up to wm was actually really great, but then wm and post wm it’s just been like a shadow they need to overcome their mistake; then stack on top of that a legends death..hard week

  • CJ Blaze

    WOO! It’s been a great day and I’m pumped for Raw!

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

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

    The big question is, will we see VKM tonight?

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      Let’s hope

    • The Breaker

      He should be the first one out, sharing his thoughts about Warrior.

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        good call

  • Yazan Hamdan

    So is this RAW going to be an old school style tribute show where there is like a small confessional after every match or is it just gonna start with a tribute vid?

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

      No clue.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Seeing the Sarge makes me happy

    • Colleen

      I have always loved him.

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

    I bid everyone farewell. Take care.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      have a good night, Josh

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night man!

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    They gotta stop mentioning Triple H’s obituary tweet

  • Danny Philippi

    Which moment of the Ultimate Warrior was your favorite?
    A. Winning the IC Title at 1988 Summerslam
    B. Winning the WWE Championship at WrestleMania VI
    C. Beating Macho Man Randy Savage at WrestleMania VII
    D. Beating Hunter Hearst Helmsley at WrestleMania XII

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

      B. it was clearly the biggest moment in his career.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      A, because I hate HTM!

    • Yazan Hamdan

      D. That no sell was PRICELESS!

    • The Breaker

      I loved the Savage match at WM VII.

      • Xavier

        Me & you both

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      B.

    • Scott

      B for sure

    PAIGE!!!!!

    • Colleen

      Can’t wait to see her again! :)

  • Danny Philippi

    Just announced: Paige and John Cena tonight.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      WOO!!!

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      I hope Paige can beat Cena ;)

      • Scott

        Shed make him tap!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    For those not watching the Pre-Show, tonights tournament will be first round matches only.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Good! Drag it out a couple of weeks, give us some quality matches.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I never understood why the mid card didn’t focus more on quality matches rather than textbook story lines.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Who’s ready for the Exotic Experience?

    Break out the hand grenades,
    Cute girls, it’s time to play,
    Explosions, to the BRAIN!!!
    Going out in STYLE!!!
    Whoa-oa-oaoaoa-oa-oa-oaoa!
    Whoa-oa-oaoaoa-oa-oa-oaoa!
    Whoa-oa-oaoaoa-oa-oa-oaoa!
    World goes wild… WOO!!!

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      That’s not his theme anymore Jesse. WWE did not have the rights to that song so they changed it. His new theme is Break Away

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        I personally prefer World Goes Wild to Break Away though

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I don’t care… It fits better! WWE should still try to get the rights to it. It hit HUGE in NXT!

  • Xavier

    Will RAW be running angles tonight or is this a pure tribute show?

    • The Breaker

      I think they’ll be moving forward with storylines, but also mixing in tributes to Warrior throughout.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m betting both. Tributes, but still progressing storylines.

      • Xavier

        That’s good

    • Mike McCarthy

      Don’t think they can just halt all story lines, nowadays WWE has there angles scheduled months in advance.

  • Alex Gallardo

          every time, my friend

  • Andrew Vaz

    What is going on folks! Everyone pumped up for RAW?

  • savokes

    How cool would it be if Jimmy and Jey came out with Warrior face paint on instead of their own, 1/2 and 1/2 like normal

    • Scott

      They have!!! I noticed it during the bell toll!

  • Scott

    Could we expect a big return tonight?

    • Mike McCarthy

      VKM but I’m hoping for Sting.

      • Scott

        Me too!!! Especially since Warrior and Sting started their careers together

        • Mike McCarthy

          That’s what I said last week, but apparently they weren’t on good terms. Maybe things will change with his sudden passing.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          And I hope Zeb can go out of character for a bit. He managed both Warrior and Sting early on.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Huh, that’s pretty cool. Never knew that. JESSE WITH THE FUN FACTS

          • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

            really? Warrior mentioned it in his HOF speech

          • Mike McCarthy

            Must’ve missed it.

      • Andrew

        i agree with one of those i think could return

        • Mike McCarthy

          VKM definitely could, Sting is just blind optimism on my part.

            much

          • Jesse Sherwood

            VERY MUCH SO! BAKA!!!

  • Scott

    Now that Im signed in on my phone how do I see the total number of posts?

    • Scott

      Im always curious to what the number is but can never see it

      • packerpf

        at 200

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It no longer shows on mobile for some reason. Disqus has been changing some things.

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        just keep posting and you’ll know it’s good!

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Man I hope the Undertaker makes an appearance, I would realy like him to address his loss to Lesnar.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      he needs to rest and get better.

      • Yazan Hamdan

        Totally agree I just hope Mania wasnt his last TV appearance until his time for the HOF comes.

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          it won’t be

    • Alex Gallardo

      I just want to see him go out on a good note.

    • Xavier

      Yeah same here. But with this being a tribute show too Warrior I wouldn’t be surprised if the WWE hedl him off TV this week

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I want him to come back when he isn’t still recovering for a concussion. Trust me, he is going to be rough for a while.

      • packerpf

        he could make an appearance and do a promo though, he doesn’t have to get physical

        • Jesse Sherwood

          His speech is going to be rough for the first week or so, and he’s going to have trouble gathering thoughts for a promo. I was a mess for 2 weeks after mine. I couldn’t hardly put a coherent sentence during that time.

          • packerpf

            see that’s something I can’t say, never had a concussion, even though taken severe hits. Of course we’d want it to be perfect, but if they wait too long it doesn’t make sense and isn’t as powerful, most fans know he’s pretty well done.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I think if he comes back after ER, it will be good.

    • Ultimate WWE Fan

      I don’t think he will

  • Mike McCarthy

    Booker just made Alex mark out

    • Alex Gallardo

      wat

      • Mike McCarthy

        Talking about Miley Cyrus

        • Alex Gallardo

          OH MY GOODNESS
          SLKFJEOIEJ

  • W0NK042

    We all know that although a turn for John Cena is long overdue, that with the revenue from the ladies & the kids (as well as the hero factor), the work for armed forces & the exceptional work for Make a Wish, it would not be easy, *but* looking at how the Wyatt/Cena story is going, what do you think the chances are that during an “Event” match, The Shield come out & help Cena reach a darker place, by holding out his lock-chain & putting it around his neck.. Hustle. Loyalty. Respect. Justice.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’m glad I’m here tonight
    Last week I missed Raw completely
    And that’s not happening again.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Paige isn’t a MIley Cyrus fan, Alex, what do you think about that?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Eh
      Neither are any of you people
      But that’s fine
      I still love Paige as a wrestler.

    • Xavier

      Nobody should be a Miley fan PERIOD

      • Alex Gallardo

        BOY
        BYE

        • Xavier

          Lol

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Warrior Week…I love that name!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Whoa, this is actually a pretty good bracket.

  • savokes

    I am stoked for the video package tribute…WWE always does well with their tribute packages

  • Ultimate WWE Fan

    Intercontinental tournament tonight :)

  • Mike McCarthy

    Cesaro’s gonna bury Mark Henry tonight.

    • Ultimate WWE Fan

      Is Cesaro Vs Mark Henry tonight

  • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

    I’m ready!

  • The Breaker

    I’M AFRAID I’VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS…. Ziggler won’t make it past the first round.

    • Xavier

      LMAO

    • Ultimate WWE Fan

      Ha Big E vs BNB Extreme Rules

  • Mike McCarthy

    For those not on the Network, tonight’s Mark Henry vs. Cesaro, RVD vs. ADR, Sheamus vs. Jack Swagger, & Dolph Ziggler vs. Bad News Barrett

    • Ultimate WWE Fan

      Are these the matches for the tournament

      • Mike McCarthy

        Yes

        • Ultimate WWE Fan

          Cool and they are really good matches

    • The Breaker

      I see either Cesaro or BNB as the favorite.

    • chris

      Cesaro, RVD, Shamus, BNB…. all too obvious.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Sheamus and BNB aren’t obvious at all.

        • chris

          They’re starting to push BNB and Swagger is going nowhere atm.

          • Mike McCarthy

            They’re also elevating Ziggler, and already the favorite is to see Cesaro vs. Swagger in the final to blowoff their program.

          • chris

            Well if that is the case, I’d expect to see Swagger cost Cesaro his match after losing his own.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Ok, let me know when that happens.

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

        Cesaro is obviously, but makes a lot of sense. Though I’d love to see him work against Ambrose for the US Title.

        • chris

          If big show wasn’t babyface, I’d like to have seen that fued start at WM after he battle royale. Really play up the size/power.

    • Yazan Hamdan

      HA! Thanks for coming Swagger!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ziggler… I’m afraid I have some BAD NEWS!!!!

      • Ultimate WWE Fan

        he will get beaten after 2 minutes

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I give it about 5.

          • Ultimate WWE Fan

            Ye the match won’t go on for long.

          • Ultimate WWE Fan

            It actually went on for 12 minutes #shocker

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think the only people we can count out for the tournament are Del Rio and Mark Henry

  • Xavier

    I really hope RVD doesn’t win tonight. Last thing we need is another washed up wrestler winning a title. The Outlaws were enough

    • The Breaker

      Harsh, but I agree that he isn’t the right guy to put over for any titles.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Just because RVD wins tonight doesn’t mean he’s getting the title.

      • Ultimate WWE Fan

        I hope RVD doesn’t win

      • Xavier

        Honestly, I don’t even think the WWE should of even brought him back

        • Mike McCarthy

          I’m not high up on RVD at all, but I’m more interested in RVD than Alberto Del Rio. ADR is just awful.

        • packerpf

          I agree with that, but he’s a name who can still go and maybe help some of the younger workers.

        • Lebron James

          He’s put out quality matches since his comeback last year. Washed up? That’s plain disrespectful.

          • Xavier

            It’s not being disrespectful, it’s telling it like it is. He came into the WWW from TNA in terrible shape and was getting blown up half way through matches and besides RVD isn’t a draw in anyway really. Quality matches is being really generous I’d say. WWE doesn’t need keep being back guys like RVD, Jericho, Rock etc etc at this point. Time to move forward

    • packerpf

      RVD doesn’t need the title, but it’s necessary for him to be in the tourney

      • Xavier

        Why is it necessary?

        • packerpf

          The tourney is a tribute to warrior, the innovative different attitude and a celebration of the title; RVD gave great credibility to the title a decade ago.

          • Mike McCarthy

            The tourney isn’t a tribute to Warrior, Raw is a tribute to Warrior. The tourney just happens to be on Raw.

          • packerpf

            The tourney is about the title, the title warrior helped establish high credibility; the tourney is a nod to him.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Alright, so if it is then why haven’t they used Warrior to promote the tournament at all? Ya know, if it’s a nod to him and all

          • O Gaines

            Actually Honky Tonk Man and his long run with the title gave it more credibility than the Warrior’s run with it!

      • Eric

        RVD is in it to set up a feud with someone. Maybe ADR

        • PHATBOYLBC

          They already had that fued

    • Cubed56

      I agree. However I feel it could be worse. I think ADR may win the tourney

    • Nick k

      RVD is not washed up he clearly can still go, that said he should not be winning this tourney.

  • Danny Philippi

    TWO MINUTES!

  • savokes

    IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT’S TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME

  • Yazan Hamdan

    My pick to win the whole thing is Bad News Barret or Del Rio. Unfortunately at this point its almost impossible for Ziggler to bounce back into a title win.

  • The Breaker

    For some reason, Comcast has RAW split up into three parts, and they’re all listed as repeats. And the description is from an episode last year. They’re messing up my DVR!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    • Colleen

      So do I.

    • Mike McCarthy

      You got it!!!

  • Danny Philppi

    Great video package. What WWE does best.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Vince was very visibly upset. Last time I saw him like this was Eddie…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Almost 300 before Raw really starts! Wow guys!

  • The Breaker

    That promo he gave on RAW… chills.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    RIP Warrior!!!

  • Dustyn

    Very, very good video.

  • Andrew

    RIP WARRIOR!!!!

  • Xavier

    Warrior has a beautiful family

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Ok, I am already a blubbering mess!

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Oh god the feels…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye…

  • The Breaker

    They’re showing his daughters… to me that’s the saddest part of all this.

  • Mike McCarthy

    total chillls

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

    Well done.

  • The Breaker

    Vince!

  • Dustyn

    Who did they do the ten bell salute for last

    • Xavier

      I think Eddie

      • Dustyn

        That’s what I was thinking

      • Mike McCarthy

        Wow, it’s been a while.

        • Mike McCarthy

          I guess that’s a good thing though.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Kofi is crying.

    • Mike McCarthy

      So is Cody

  • savokes

    Cody looked like a mess too

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Who puts tears on my cheeks?!

  • Danny Philppi

    Goosepimples on my arms.

  • Xavier

    Excellent tribute. Vince has done right by the Warrior family and as much crap as some people give Vince I hope they see all the good he’s done

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Last time we will ever hear that theme on live tv… :’(

    • Mike McCarthy

      But that’s what the WWE Network is for!!

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Awesome

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Chills

  • Alex Gallardo

    That was a great way to honor Warrior
    WWE really does have the best production team for these tributes.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      they do

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

      and have to utilize them way too much
      . :(

  • James Larochelle

    That wad very well done.

  • The Breaker

    There’s nothing more chilling than the ten-bell salute.

  • Andrew

    great tribute.

  • Danny Philppi

    The Squash of the Uso’s Part II

  • Xavier

    I’ve read reports from various sites that Reigns/Triple H is the running plan for Summerslam right now

    • Cubed56

      As have I. I don’t think that a good idea

      • Xavier

        Why so?

        • Cubed56

          If they use it to see if Reigns is ready for a singles push then fine, but Ive got a feeling him being in the ring one on one with HHH will show a lot if his downfalls

          • Xavier

            I’m more worried about Reigns on the mic then in the ring honestly

          • Cubed56

            That too. Don’t get me wrong I want Reigns to succeed, but hes all of 3 big moves right now, Ambrose and Rollins do all the heavy lifting in their matches, Reigns just gets the big pop for finishing them. I honestly hope im wrong, but his inexperience showed against Wyatt one on one at Raw in GB, now imagine him with a vet like HHH.

          • Xavier

            Well you can protect him in the ring by putting him in the ring with more experienced workers until he improves but on the mic it’s all on him

          • Cubed56

            that’s true

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Because it will establish him as too much of a HHH Guy in fans eyes, and see where it has gotten Sheamus in recent years.

          • Xavier

            Fans can be idiots sometimes

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Agreed. Sheamus has a HUGE upside, just not as much as a face.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Vince is the one that wants him as a face.

          • David Jr.

            I think the 18 second match hurt Sheamus more than being a Triple H guy.

    • Alex Gallardo

      That would get Reigns over quite well.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I like it, but they should do it sooner.

    • The Breaker

      Well then they have a lot of building to do with Reigns… and he needs to improve his skills a lot.

      • Xavier

        I’m more worried about Reigns on the mic then in the ring honestly. You can protect a guy in the ring until he gets better by putting him in the ring with more experienced workers

        • The Breaker

          I think he handles himself fine on the mic… but he hasn’t done a lot of talking. He’s at his best when he keeps it short and to the point. As for his ring work, he still only has like 3 moves. I’m not sure how well he’ll do in a lengthy match. I just keep thinking back to that singles match he had with Bray and how the crowd crapped all over it.

          • Xavier

            Keep in mind though that Reigns had two really good matches against Punk & Bryan and both of those went over 10 minutes. The problem with Bray is that he himself isn’t good enough in the ring either at this point to carry a green worker to a good match. Most people blame Reigns for that match but I think it’s on both of them honestly

          • The Breaker

            Good points. I forgot about those other matches.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Not gonna lie I think Batista and Orton would make a good team.

  • Andrew Vaz

    The Ultimate Warrior tribute was great. RIP Warrior

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      he deserved it too

      • Andrew Vaz

        Yes he did, I’m glad the legacy of Warrior is kept for what it was.

  • Cubed56

    Here’s to hoping Ziggler wins the tournament

    • Mike McCarthy

      We always have hope.

    • savokes

      I’ve got some Bad News……..I don’t think he makes it past BNB (credit to Breaker for the idea =)

      • Yazan Hamdan

        I hope not Bad News FTW!

      • Cubed56

        lol

      • The Breaker

        Copycat… I said the exact same thing! :P

        • savokes

          haha, my bad…must have missed that earlier

    • Xavier

      Cesaro

  • Kevin

    Anyone else see Roman. Reigns laughing on two different occasions during the beginning of the tribute.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I hope he wasn’t.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      That was him crying, at least that’s what it looked like

    • Mike McCarthy

      This is what DVR is for. If he did, somebody will catch it

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He was crying. I checked the DVR feed.

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        that’s what it looked like to me

      • Kevin

        It looked like he a zeb we’re joking before the tribute … Maybe I’m wrong

  • Danny Philppi

    Who do you want to win the Intercontinental Championship #1 Contender Tournament?
    A. Cesaro
    B. Ziggler
    C. Bad News Barrett
    D. RVD

    • Alex Gallardo

      A.

    • Andrew

      i wish b but realistically a

          26 in the alphabet :)

          • Alex Gallardo

            UHMMM I MEANT FOR MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS LIKE THIS.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Why can’t there be 8 letters? I mean it only makes sense

        • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

          you think so?

    • CJ Blaze

      A or B

    • The Breaker

      Funny, the previous champ also had Heyman as his advocate… Curtis Axel!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ADR gets the jobber entrance… That should spell out his fate!

    • The Breaker

      Apparently he has backstage heat, so that’s not surprising in the least.

      • Mike McCarthy

        He’s had a rough downslide since Survivor Series.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Is it too much to ask for him to be locked up with Puppet H?

        • Ashley

          I love Puppet H! He should have his own show on the network

        • The Breaker

          Awesome reference xD

  • packerpf

    del rio no real entrance, hopefully this is a good sign of his downgrade

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I love RVD’s singlet tonight!

  • Michael

    I can very well see Cesaro and Swagger in the finals.

  • Ashley

    What a nice video package about Warrior. Nice to see all the talent out for him too.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    ADR got the jobber entrance, looks like Matt, Jesse and Kendra are getting what they want :P

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      you mean everyone but you ;)

      • Colleen

        So true. :)

      • Yazan Hamdan

        WOAH WOAH! I dont like ADR, i said i heard rumors! Cmon you guys!

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          Rumors aren’t on WNW, just facts. Fact: ADR sucks!

          • Yazan Hamdan

            Haha I hear ya!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Fact: ADR has more botches than Sin Cara 1.

          • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

            Truth!

          • Nick k

            Look I’m not a fan of del Rio but that’s just an absurd statement.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It was a joke. Was trying to get a string of them going.

  • Michael

    RVD looking a lil pudgy

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye… But 6 months off will do that to you!

      • Xavier

        Atleast he’s not trying too wear skinny jeans lol

      • Michael

        He must be a part of the Part Time Winded Squad lol hes already blown up too

      • Mike McCarthy

        So will the munchies…

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      too many munchies

      • savokes

        HI-OOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Andrew

    i just watched the journey to wrestlemania with daniel bryan on the wwe network a lil while ago and man that was some great stuff

  • Danny Philppi

    Watched Smackdown for the first time in 9 months last week. Was pleasantly entertained. Wish WWE can solve its TV deals so Smackdown stays on Syfy.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I don’t see them leaving NBC Universal. It makes little sense unless they get a ton of money.

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        USA actually has ratings and money

  • chris

    15 mins in and already 2 advert breaks on sky sports 1…. its getting rediculous! the adverts are getting more tv time than the actual tv show!

    • Danny Philippi

      Same here on USA Network. SMH!

      • chris

        that break lasted between 3-4 mins…. as did the first… thats 8 mins out of 19 for adverts.

        • Mike McCarthy

          Chris is good at math :)

          • chris

            just giving some perspective… they need to fix it!

          • Mike McCarthy

            Agreed, they need to give the Donald Trump model another try. Even if it was kayfabe!!

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      have you never watched it on tv before? Commercial breaks ever 8 minutes

      • chris

        its a disgrace! i rarely watch live due to it being on at 1am – 4am in the uk.
        RAW didn’t go to 3 hours long, they just added more adverts!

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          gotta make money. They make millions off of that!

          • chris

            Welcome to Monday Night ADVERTS. Watch all the latest adverts with very little wrestling breaks.

  • Danny Philppi

    Botch!

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      By a mile

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I too reel back when someone kicks four feet away from me.

  • David Jr.

    Are all 7 matches tonight or is it going to spread out over a couple episodes?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Only first round matches

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Camera caught ADR calling that spot!

    • Michael

      Botchamania

      • Xavier

        That’s not a botch

        • Jesse Sherwood

          But the spot itself was.

        • Mike McCarthy

          No, but botchamania features blatant spot-calling as well.

          • Xavier

            Oh okay, I get what he meant now. He’s referring to those youtube vids lol

          • Mike McCarthy

            Lol yeah

        • Michael

          It’ll be in the Everyone talks too much segment

      • Jesse Sherwood

        AKA a typical ADR match!

  • Eric

    ADR just jumped straight down from the top rope. At least act like your trying something

  • packerpf

    let the burying of del rio begin :D

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      good. He should just be fired.

      • Colleen

        I never liked him.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No, he needs to be locked in a small room of the WWE Warehouse… Where they store all of the old wrestler’s outfits that haven’t been washed.

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          #Vader

        • Mike McCarthy

          They need to repackage him as a Mexican Doink

          • Jesse Sherwood

            YES!!! Please!!!!

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Nevermind.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      RVD wouldn’t return last week to job this week.

  • Danny Philppi

    ADR the latest Mid Card mafia member.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Makes me believe i’m one of a kind

    • Colleen

      He has the best theme song.

    • David Jr.

      His WWE theme is great, His TNA theme sucked.

  • Xavier

    If RVD beats Cesaro in the 2nd round that’ll be a huge disgrace

    • savokes

      Unless Swagger interferes?

      • Mike McCarthy

        No

        • savokes

          haha, i appreciate your matter-of-factness in your response

          • Mike McCarthy

            How am I supposed to supply a fact? It’s a scripted outcome.

    • Mike McCarthy

      That’d be the worst creative decision since Ryback vs. Punk at HiaC 2012.

  • Andrew Vaz

    So, who says Cesaro will be the new Intercontinental champ?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      AYE!

    • The Breaker

      That would make the most sense, and I’ve been saying he should be IC Champ for a while now, but that all makes me think it probably won’t happen.

  • Danny Philppi

    NO D-BRY! SMH!^Infinity

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Let the man enjoy his new bride! ;)

    • packerpf

      if you were marrying a super hot woman you wouldn’t be quick back from your honeymoon either

  • James Larochelle

    So Swagger and Cesaro in the final or they both cause each other the chance to advance?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Cesaro’s a lock for the final, and I’d be surprised if they didn’t do Cesaro vs. Swagger.

      • Eric

        Or Cesaro vs Ziggler and swagger costs Cesaro the match which sets up big e vs Ziggler and swagger vs Cesaro

        • Mike McCarthy

          I’d like that, I’m rooting for Ziggler but with it being BNB’s 2nd match back I doubt they put him under to Ziggler.

          • Eric

            That’s true I forgot that’s who else was there. BNB will face Cesaro with swagger costing him

  • Eric

    Ziggler could win this if they decide to have swagger cost Cesaro his match against rvd

  • Tom Mayer

    So ADR finished a match without injuring his opponent?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep! It’s a near Easter miracle!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Evolution is a mystery! Subtle changes no one sees!

    • The Breaker

      I like to pretend Triple H is the one that sang that song.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Motorhead… They provided HHH some of the best themes in WWE for the last 15 years!

        • The Breaker

          Yeah I know, but he sounds just like Trips lol

  • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

    I love sting too fan

  • Jesse Sherwood

    HTM… BAKA!!!

  • Xavier

    A lot of people claimed that Bryan was the one getting buried in this whole Authority angle prior too him winning but Orton’s stock is the one that fell dramatically after the whole thing

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The best Champion squash of ALL TIME!

    • Xavier

      No love for Diesel/Bob Backlund lol?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nope, because I liked Bob back then!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Toys-R-Us? WWE JUST TURNED ON K-MART

    • Ashley

      Bout time!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      #CorporateHeelTurn

    • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

      lol I don’t even think k mart exist where I live

    • The Breaker

      No, they just came out with a K-Mart commercial, the one with Cole and Lawler in the toy aisle.

      • Mike McCarthy

        …exactly..

      • Mike McCarthy

        They’ve been partners with K-Mart for over 2 years

  • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

    lol horrible acting

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I love this commercial! I wish we had Toys R Us around here!

    • savokes

      got plenty of them around me…want anything? =)

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Legendary Skylanders for my son. He loves Skylanders, and those are the ones he can only get at Toys R Us.

  • Tom Mayer

    This is painful to watch haha

  • packerpf

    wow lame..lol

  • Michael

    Wheres BNB during this awful commercial

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      He has a match in the tournament so any bad news will have to wait

      • Michael

        Damn! Then Save Us Y2J

    • packerpf

      that’s exactly who I was expecting

  • Mandy

    What an amazing tribute to Warrior, the part where he is shown with his daughters is heartbreaking.

    • Andrew

      agree that really broke my heart :(

  • David Jr.

    Sheamus wants a Sheamus action figure come to where I live because we only have Sheamus and Del Rio at the Toys R us near us.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Joey Mercury looked weird at the Warrior tribute at the beginning of the show. Not digging the shaved head

    • Ashley

      Agreed! He looks almost unrecognizable

    • Mike McCarthy

      I guess he’s still hoping for a Straight Edge Society reboot.

  • Danny Philppi

    Toys R’ Us called and they want their advertising deal breached.

  • Xavier

    We’re on pace for about 3000 comments right now lol

    • Ashley

      How many so far? I am on my phone and it won’t show me the number

      • Xavier

        Around 514

      • Jesse Sherwood

        515.

        • Ashley

          Holy buckets

    • Harlie Boucher

      Good, I just signed in to help with that.

      • Xavier

        Let’s do it

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Thanks Harlie!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, remember that we had close to 250 before Raw started!

      • Harlie Boucher

        It’s like cheating.

        • Mike McCarthy

          Open Thread starts at the same time as the Pre-Show

          • Jesse Sherwood

            This week, we started at 7 EST, but only had about 60 at 7:30.

      • Xavier

        True

  • Danny Philppi

    This is what WNW Open Threads are like when no meaningful sporting events are on.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      we broke a record last week during NCAA Finals.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      This is what WNW Open Threads are like when the shows are running good!

      • Harlie Boucher

        It just started, hasn’t even had much of a chance to be bad yet.

        • Mike McCarthy

          It was awesome after the first segment. Warrior tribute.

    • Xavier

      Well there is Phoenix/Memphis tonight with the winner getting the last playoff spot in the West lol

      • James Larochelle

        Go Suns!

      • Danny Philippi

        The winner will lose to the Spurs in five games max.

        • Mike McCarthy

          None of it matters cause the Bobcats are winning it all!!!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Nope, GO SPURS!

        • Xavier

          Very true. I got San Antonio winning the whole thing

          • Mike McCarthy

            I got Charlotte vs. Portland

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Goldust sports a gold hoodie ala Cody

    • Harlie Boucher

      Yeah, that looks interesting. Still prefer his wig and robe.

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        that would be cool if he sported it again

  • packerpf

    this makes no sense…the shield couldn’t get through the wyatts now we’re supposed to expect them to be able to get through 3 former world champs?

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      yes

    • Yazan Hamdan

      Well they DID win on Main Event.

    • James Larochelle

      They’re on the same page now. Different game. :)

  • David Jr.

    Is a Movie that was 30 million dollars behind the top movie of the week, really taking the box office by storm?

    • Tom Mayer

      Taking mediocrity by storm!

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      compared to other wwe movies and how horror movies generally do at box office, yes.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And it was only made for about 5 million, if I remember right.

  • savokes

    I understand that a team can’t be on top forever…but Cody and Goldy were having 4-5 star matches for a while…and now…Rybaxel

    • Harlie Boucher

      At least they’re on Raw.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And Rybaxel has a new Remix theme.

    • The Breaker

      It was pretty dumb that they didn’t even really keep feuding for the belts after they lost.

      • savokes

        My point exactly! But no, stupid NAO had more of a run chasing/holding the titles than Cody and Goldy

        • The Breaker

          You call that a run? More like a stagger.

  • Cubed56

    I don’t believe for one second Evolution wont be reuniting

    • Xavier

      Evolution vs The Shield is very likely for Extreme Rules. Just wonder who challenges Bryan if that’s the case

      • Harlie Boucher

        I bolieve it will be someone else….

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Cesaro? Please?

        • Mike McCarthy

          That would be a dream come true.

        • Xavier

          I’d love too see that

        • The Breaker

          Not likely for ER, but I see it happening down the road.

      • Cubed56

        Shield and Bryan vs Evolution and Kane

  • The Breaker

    “All I wanna do is be champ.”

    -Batista. Such a way with words. A-list Hollywood actor, indeed.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Boy… Those acting lessons sure helped!

      • Tom Mayer

        It’s the skinny jeans and the belly button tattoo.

  • Danny Philppi

    Have you not heard the chant tonight. Thank goodness.

    • Harlie Boucher

      What chant?

  • Michael

    I wish Axel had his dads charisma.

    • James Larochelle

      How about half?

    • Harlie Boucher

      I always liked Axel. I really was rooting for him to succeed when he joined up with Heyman. Sad it didn’t work out for him.

      • Michael

        He can go out and have a terrific match but no charisma

  • Michael

    Birmingham trying to hijack the show. Very vague

  • Danny Philppi

    The JBL and Jerry chants during the Rhodes Brothers match. Crap!

  • Xavier

    Creative has nothing for The Brotherhood right now

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ryback out of position on the Moonsault.

  • Michael

    Ryback looks like the yellow M&M

    • James Larochelle

      THAT’S who he is!!

      • Michael

        Eat me more

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That was a nasty Meathook!

    • Mike McCarthy

      (I thought I’d never say these words) great spot by Ryback!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Agreed! He may have messed up the spot earlier, but was on point there!

  • Mike McCarthy

    That was a great match.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    amazing clothesline

    • Harlie Boucher

      It was nice, surprised they got the win.

  • Xavier

    They should just stick Ryback & Axel with Zeb or something

    • Harlie Boucher

      Heyman couldn’t help them, Zeb isn’t going to do anything for them either.

      • Xavier

        A lot of that was because they weren’t internet guys

        • Harlie Boucher

          Eat. Sleep. Tweet. Delete.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Wow who did the Rhodes Bros upset backstage?

  • EvilMenace666

    RVD is just plain boring!

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Remember, you can sign up for WWE Network at network.wwe.com lol.

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Really.

  • James Larochelle

    New remix?

    • Mike McCarthy

      They debuted it at ‘Mania

      • Tom Mayer

        Not a fan, it just sounds bad.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Debuted at Mania. Already bought it!

      • James Larochelle

        Ahh..Didn’t see the pre show here in Canada.

        • Michael

          Dang. It was a good match too

  • The Breaker

    Legends House! Appointment viewing!

  • Scott

    Does it make me a bad person if I am really looking forward to Legends House?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope! It is going to be fun!

      • Scott

        Hell yeah! Im really looking forward to it! Im calling for Jimmy Hart to steal the show haha

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Why is it that every time I see the commercial for it, I wonder if Jimmy is really working as a Chippendale now?

    • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

      I’ll watch it until they add some wcw nitro content

      • Scott

        It would be amazing if they added all raws smackdowns and nitros!!! I wouldnt mind rewatching Austin McMahon and Sting and Hogan!

    • David Jr.

      No it means you’re a wrestling fan.

    • The Breaker

      I regularly watch Total Divas and feel no shame, so I’m probably the wrong person to ask.

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Still can’t decide whether or not I’ll be interested in watching Legends House.

  • Xavier

    Didn’t they record Legends house like 2 years ago?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep. And all of them have been mum on it the entire time!

      • Tom Mayer

        Between the chair shots and old age they probably forgot :p

        • Xavier

          Lol

    • Harlie Boucher

      Not sure if it was that long ago, but they’ve had it ready to go for awhile.

    • Ashley

      Yes

      • Xavier

        I thought so because I remember when the WWE tried to launch the network in late 2011 they were already wrapping up the recordings

    • Mike McCarthy

      I think even sooner. Legends House was advertised in the very first WWE Network ad.

      • Xavier

        That’s what I remember as well

  • Danny Philippi

    45 minutes and TWO matches!
    Or what I call, a Thursday night.
    JK!

  • Harlie Boucher

    Can’t wait to watch Paige’s real debut match tonight.

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      Me too.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Not gonna lie im excited as hell for the Divas division now!

  • Cubed56

    had to step away for a second, got caught up. Did the Rhodes really go under to Rybaxel or am I seeing things?

    • savokes

      yyyuuuuup

    • Mike McCarthy

      This is like the 4th time.

      • Cubed56

        really?

        • Mike McCarthy

          Actually, I think 3rd.

          • Cubed56

            Good god, who did the Rhodes piss off?

    • Harlie Boucher

      Yes, you’re seeing things and those things are Rybaxel beating The Rhodes Brothers.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Now whenever I see Bryan Cranston all I can think about is how badly they F#&$! up by not picking him to play Lex Luthor.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Mae Young giving birth to a hand or Cena pooping himself is still not as gross as the name “Rybaxel”

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Aaah Paiiige!!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ANTI DIVA!

  • Xavier

    I give that vengette two thumbs down

    • Cubed56

      I Bolieve!

    • Harlie Boucher

      I hate Bo. And not in the heel hate way, I just don’t like him at all.

      • Scott

        I cant take him seriously. Its like hes the Justin Beiber of wrestling….

      • Michael

        Just wait until his bro gets him. He has the whole world in his hands!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Bo Dallas… NXT’s steaming pile of Ryback.

      • Nick k

        Do you actually watch nxt?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I do Nick, every week. And I despise Bo Dallas. Mediocre ring work, coupled with average mic skills and lackluster presence. The guy does nothing for me. I’d rather they bring anyone else up.

          • Nick k

            I don’t know man I’m not sure how you get that from watching him, his ring work is fine and his character is entertaining. The jersey that thinks he’s a good guy, I think he’ll do very well. Obviously everything is subjective but his ring work mediocre? That’s just not the case.

    • The Breaker

      How dare you diss on Bo?!

      Okay, I admit, I really hated him when he first started getting featured regularly, but since he turned heel and began his new character, he’s been one of the best things about NXT for me.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        His Occupy NXT promo this week was legitimately entertaining….well at least to me

        • The Breaker

          It was good. He’s hilarious if you ask me. I like him pretty much only because of his promos/character. His ring work is take it or leave it.

          • Navin T. Ramkissoon

            He has work to do, but I still have hope for him

        • Michael

          Haah everyone turned their back on him. Classic

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      Bo’s in ring work and promo work had shown some improvement during his feud with Neville. He still has some ways to go but I am not throwing in the towel on him yet.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    My girl, Paige!!!!

    • Harlie Boucher

      She’s mine. :P

      • Jesse Sherwood

        She’s MINE!!! I called her months ago!

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          I’m taller and older, mine!

          • Michael

            Gentlemen, im afraid ive got bad news! She is mine

    • Colleen

      Love her!

    • The Breaker

      The Mysterious Raven-Haired Lady. :)

  • Yazan Hamdan

    PAIGE!!

  • Michael

    I wish Tyson kidd was given his chance

  • Andrew

    paige!!

  • The Breaker

    I’m ready to BO-LIEVE!

  • Alex Gallardo

    ALKEJROEIJ PAIGE IS GOING TO
    S
    L
    A
    Y

  • Xavier

    Sheamus & Paige together would have invisible babies

  • Gesus Oliver

    I hear the Exotic Express is at raw. Will we get to be apart of the party?

  • The Breaker

    Last week with Paige was excellent booking.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I really hope creative throws their weight behind Paige, AJ, Emma and the NXT ladies whenever they are called up

  • Danny Philippi

    Can’t wait for the rematch.

  • savokes

    She is so pasty white…I love it!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Feels so weird hearing them announce her as Diva’s champ instead of NXT. I enjoy this.

  • Michael

    Paige is a book I’d like to read. Im illiterate too

    • Xavier

      LMAO nice

    • Tom Mayer

      I’d read that pop up book

  • Mike McCarthy

    Alicia Fox? Are you kidding?

    • Harlie Boucher

      At least we know she’ll win.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Paige can carry her!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Alicia Fox no

  • Cubed56

    I wish Alicia Fox would get to utilize her athletic ability more

  • Danny Philippi

    JBL zinging it tonight. Has he sat on a cactus?

  • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

    lol wow

  • Xavier

    Fox is getting a lot of offense in

  • Harlie Boucher

    Hopefully Alicia Fox can take the Page Turner better than AJ did last week.

  • chris

    she got any other moves?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      She is extremely talented. Why they aren’t letting her show it, I don’t know.

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Not feeling it

  • Jesse Sherwood

    DANG! Look at Paige’s back!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    “Apparently [Paige} goes to the same tanning salon as Sheamus!” that line had me giggling.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Why is everyone upset that Paige is fighting Alicia Fox? Atleast we all know Paige will win.

  • savokes

    Let’s see if Alicia will give us another swinging back breaker

  • Gesus Oliver

    *knock knock* anyone there?

  • David Jr.

    Alicia Fox made her WWE debut in 2008 as Edge and Vickie Guerrero’s wedding planner. And beside that 5 star classic she had against Melina, just ask Cameron, has anyone had a more lackluster 6 year career?

    • Gesus Oliver

      JTG

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      Yoshi Tatsu

    • Xavier

      Cameron will never be able too live that down lol

    • Xavier

      Evan Bourne & Tyson Kidd

      • Mike McCarthy

        Both had credible tag team runs.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Before his contract expired, Big Zeke.

      • Mike McCarthy

        He was a beast on ECW

    • Mike McCarthy

      Curt Hawkins

  • Dustyn

    I love that submission!

    • Michael

      Made famous by Bull nakano

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Never Mind I got my question answered before I could ask it lol

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Cool move

  • Mike McCarthy

    If WWE is going to pull the trigger on an Evolution reunion, why not replace Flair with a rookie. I mean the whole point of Evolution was to help bring Batista and Orton to the main event.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      But who?

      • Tom Mayer

        The broomstick

      • Yazan Hamdan

        Yeah i dont feel like anyone has the evolution “feel” that Batista and Orton had.

      • Avalanchian

        Barrett

      • savokes

        YOU JESSE…you didn’t hear, you’re getting the call up to the big league!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          *Pops on the shades.* Good. *DDTs Savokes in his first heel action.*

          • Tom Mayer

            Oh my god, oh my god, he’s broken in half!

          • savokes

            *twitches on ground uncontrollably*

      • Cubed56

        maybe HHH enlists the services of Ascension if Batista and Orton wont do it

  • Xavier

    Paige has been on the main roster a week and she’s already 5x more over then AJ or anyone other Diva for that matter

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      I didn’t get that feeling. She needs to pick up the pace

      • Xavier

        I’m getting that vibe.

        • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

          I would like to see her against someone else.

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      That’s because Paige can actually work well in the ring . She can only get better from here on in. Creative just needs to throw their weight behind her and the NXT Ladies

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Scorpion Cross Lock! That is great!

  • Gesus Oliver

    I love Paiges finisher but she needs to find a way to lock it in faster. The slow process kills the believability.

  • Scott

    Holy crap that submission was awesome! Speaking of submission holds….I really miss Cattle Mutilation

  • Ashley

    I BOlieve is trending on twitter, really!?

    • Harlie Boucher

      I can’t BOlieve that either.

    • Cubed56

      Bolieve that!

  • Cubed56

    is it just me or this a really awesome time in wwe, a true turning of the page. im really excited to see all the new talent pan out over the next handful of years.

    • Xavier

      Agreed. Where’s Vince so I can thank him. He hasn’t posted on here in awhile lol

      • Cubed56

        lol, I was thinking the same thing.

  • chris

    First woman ive seen on WWE programming in years that gives me hope that the divas division can still be more than screaming, hair pulling and lackluster moves

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      I hope so.

    • Xavier

      Kharma could have been the one until she got pregnant

      • chris

        nah, they’d have turned her into a drama queen and done a horrible “fat” storyline to segway into that.
        Paige is the first female since trish and lita… and maybe gail kims first run that gives me hope and changes a divas match from my beer refil time.

  • David Jr.

    The last segment was brought to you by DDP Yoga, (Bo) Dallas (vignette and a) Paige (match).

    That Oculus movie is actually pretty good

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      looks like it. Love indie horror

      • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

        check out 13 sins

        • Mike McCarthy

          Was just thinking about checking that out yesterday, is it actually good?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And Karen Gillan… *Drools*

  • Mandy

    I fully expected AJ to come out during Paige’s match or even afterwards but she didn’t. I was actually surprised to see Alicia fight tonight

    • Harlie Boucher

      Yeah, was a better Diva’s match than usual.

  • Danny Philippi

    Which call up from NXT will be the best moving forward?
    A. Bo Dallas
    B. Adam Rose
    C. Alexander Reusev
    D. Paige

    • Harlie Boucher

      1.) D, 2.) B, 3.) A, 4.) C

    • The Breaker

      Paige, but I’m really liking Adam Rose. Bo is good too, but his ring work really isn’t up to snuff. But there’s time to improve.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      Sami Zayn

    • Gesus Oliver

      I think putting Paige in that mix is wrong. the competition is completely different because of the divisions. I think Adam Rose has the largest potential if he stays healthy.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        WOO!

        • Gesus Oliver

          holy crap someone replied to me :O

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Been busy, otherwise I would have more!

      • Cubed56

        I like rusev for some reason. A guy that with that kind of athletic ability is always intriguing

        • Gesus Oliver

          me too but I feel he will need a lot of character progression to stay relevant and not sure he will be upto it. Especially with WWE’s inability to push story lines consistently.

          • Cubed56

            very true

          • Gesus Oliver

            Obviously since I said it :-p #Gesushasspoken

          • Cubed56

            lol

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Sadly, I see Rusev going down the same path as Kozlof. He has good ring work, but the scary foreign gimmick doesn’t connect with today’s audience.

    • Mike McCarthy

      A if they give him a manager, if not D

    • Xavier

      Paige

  • Harlie Boucher

    So glad to see Paige up on the main roster, but man, they’re taking all the people I like off of NXT!

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Usos with Warrior facepaint!

  • James Larochelle

    Nice tribute by the Usos

  • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

    please don’t squash them…

  • Xavier

    The Usos are legit. I’d really love too see Vince build the tag division around them for years too come the way Gagne did with the LOD in AWA back in the day but that’s probably asking too much

    • James Larochelle

      Maybe a touch too much

    • Harlie Boucher

      They are alright. I actually don’t like them too much though. I wish they’d bring The Ascension up.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Don’t know why they haven’t already started a Tag Team show with Usos being the centerpiece

  • Harlie Boucher

    I’m surprised this match is going on already. I wonder what the main event is going to be.

  • Andrew

    i love the facepaint! good job usos

  • The Breaker

    Love the Ultimate Warrior facepaint on the Usos.

    • savokes

      I knew they were gonna do that, just had that feeling

  • chris

    Warrior facepaint <3

  • Christopher

    The Paige character in the main roster look a little insecure. I havent seen her on NXT, so i really dont know if she is normally like that.

    • Harlie Boucher

      She’s not. She’s one of those stronger characters that will fight anyone and who is not afraid.

    • The Breaker

      Yeah, I noticed that in her promo last week she seemed way less confident than she normally is on NXT, it was weird.

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      Yes. I want to see her go against AJ, Natty or Nikki before I make a call on her.

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      For some reason that’s the way that creative is choosing to book her. She is much better on NXT.

  • Gesus Oliver

    A week later we have really settled into the same dead boring crowd we generally get. Hard to believe Mania was a week ago.

    • Xavier

      Who are you?

      • Gesus Oliver

        Troubles reading?

        • Xavier

          Lol nah I’m messing with you bro. I just haven’t seen you on here in awhile

          • Gesus Oliver

            Keep your eyes open. I lurk in the rafters with Sting.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Hands Gesus the bat.* You know what to do Batman…

          • Gesus Oliver

            Fly Fat Butt Fly!-Mews.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            LOL!!!

          • Xavier

            LOL

          • Ashley

            Apparently he had better things to do on Mondays other than hang out with us! Lol

          • Xavier

            Yeah, the nerve of that guy lol

  • Danny Philippi

    Well this match has lasted longer than last week’s match.

  • Danny Philippi

    CROWD IS DEAD!
    CROWD IS DEAD!
    SO AM I. BUT WHY?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because Bootista is on TV!

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        Came unglued for The Sheild

    • KINGFRANCHISE

      how can the WWE keep the crowd hot from week 2 week?? im curious 2 konw

      • Jesse Sherwood

        By booking consistently and logically.

        • KINGFRANCHISE

          agreed, wwe falls off when it comes gto booking.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    500 in an Hour! On pace to break the record tonight!!!

    • Gesus Oliver

      We’re going to die of like this crowd.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Don’t be negative man! Hop on the Exotic Experience!

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        not when gillberg returns

  • chris

    Rikishi has to be proud!

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      i agree

  • Harlie Boucher

    Where is Raw tonight?

    • Danny Philippi

      The pits or Birmingham, Alabama.

  • The Breaker

    It’s kinda dumb that Orton and Batista are acting like they’re lowering themselves by going up against the Usos. I know it’s in their character, but it still gives off the feeling that they’re burying the tag titles in a way.

    • chris

      unless the uso’s go over…

    • Xavier

      They want revenge on Bryan more then anything so it makes sense

      • The Breaker

        I think it’s more about the title than getting back at Bryan. Batista has said many times that the only reason he’s back is to become champion.

    • Tom Mayer

      Believe me, it’s not just ortons character :p

    • Mike McCarthy

      Are you saying if you had the chance you’d rather be a Tag champ than a WWE champ?

      • The Breaker

        I mean yeah, there’s nothing higher than the WWE Title, and technically everyone wants to win that belt, but they don’t have to make every other belt look valueless in comparison.

  • Michael

    12000 + and all silent

  • Jesse Sherwood

    SHIELD!

  • Harlie Boucher

    Leave it to The Shield to get the crowed going.

  • savokes

    Triple powerbomb time baby!

  • Yazan Hamdan

    About time they showed up!

  • Ashley

    Knew this would happen. How else are they going to get Evolution together?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    NOW The Shield is their problem!

  • Mike McCarthy

    “There’s nowhere to go Big Dave” …except the side of the ring nobody’s blocking… that’s one thing I never understood about The Shield.

    • Harlie Boucher

      Well they only have 3 members for a 4 sided ring.

      • Gesus Oliver

        I’m not following. I’m not good with letters.

        • Harlie Boucher

          .srettel ton er’yehT

          • Gesus Oliver

            I’m lost.

      • Mike McCarthy

        …yeah…?

        • Mike McCarthy

          That was my point

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Love the Superman

  • The Breaker

    Well this pretty much confirms Shield vs. Evolution at some point.

    • Cubed56

      Extreme Rules? I actually see The Shield and DB vs Evolution and Kane

      • Mike McCarthy

        I think that’s what everybody’s hoping for now, I’d be disappointed if they did something else. But I still think DB should pull double duty.

        • Cubed56

          Ill pass on the double duty. Id rather have him defend the title, but i don’t see a clear no. 1 contender for it right now.

      • The Breaker

        Eh, that seems a bit overbooked to me.

        • Cubed56

          How so?

  • Cubed56

    Funny how the Shield just pulled a heel maneuver, but get cheered for it now instead of booed.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Get out your shovels…

  • Dustyn

    Neutralizer or Cesaro Swing to Henry, I hope!

  • Yazan Hamdan

    So do you guys think Cesaro is getting a new theme or is he going back to his pre Real Americans one?

    • Dustyn

      I liked his pre Real American’s one.

      • Harlie Boucher

        Me too, hopefully he’ll go back to his original one.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He came out with no theme on SD, so it will be interesting!

  • CJ Blaze

    I’m hoping Cesaro wins the tournament. I like Big E, but his reign may be coming to an end

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      THat would be cool!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’d adore that.

    • Harlie Boucher

      What a rather lackluster run it was too. Cesaro really could use the win.

      • CJ Blaze

        I was hoping Big E would help improve it, like the last few champions, but that wasn’t the case. I know Cesaro (with Heyman) can do good things

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      I like Big E buts he’s boring

  • Andrew

    i really hope they keep/make cesaro a babyface he should not be a heel

  • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

    I’m only 25 and I only remember watching the ultimate warrior from wcw when he disappeared in the smoke…anyone know any good wwf matches from him? I’ll watch them on wwe network

      Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania VI and Macho Man at Wrestlemania VII are, IMO, his 2 best matches.

      • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

        thanks. I will check them out

      • The Breaker

        Don’t forget Macho vs. Warrior at SummerSlam ’92.

  • Gesus Oliver

    I have a serious issue with tonights tournament. Stay tuned to the next Legends of Podcasting’s podcast to find out why. I have a nice rant brewing.

    • Cubed56

      I love shameless self promotion, lol.

      • Gesus Oliver

        What can I say? I’m not going to give away the good stuff for free. I need you all to hear the raw emotion in my voice.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          You don’t work for Heyman do you?

          • Gesus Oliver

            He works for me.

        • Ashley

          As long as raw emotion doesn’t equal Nancy screams

        • Cubed56

          Lol, fair enough

    My Extreme Rule card:

    Who does Daniel Bryan face though?

    • Harlie Boucher

      Hulk Hogan.

      • Gesus Oliver

        Brother!

    • Xavier

      Ziggler after a heel turn?

    what happened to jojo?

    • Mike McCarthy

      She’s still under contract, they just took her off Total Divas.

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      Last I heard she was sent back to developmental

  • Xavier

    All this Authority stuff after thelast six months has really hurt Orton’s stock. How many people actually care about him at this point or see himas a viable threat?

    • Tom Mayer

      I never did

    • The Breaker

      He was pretty much a third wheel the whole time, even when he was holding the title.

    • Harlie Boucher

      Doesn’t help that all he did was whine the whole time.

    • David Jr.

      I thought he was a “heatless” WWE Champion heading into Wrestlemania.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Who here listens to the podcast?

    • Gesus Oliver

      I guess no one.

      • Ashley

        I do!

        • Gesus Oliver

          Thoughts opinions?

          • Ashley

            I like it. I think you should do one on the worst people to meet since I know you have met a lot.

          • Gesus Oliver

            Well, I don’t want to talk about some fan I met in a Greenbay Hotel.

          • Ashley

            Lol

          • Cubed56

            Which hotel?

    • Harlie Boucher

      I do! To the Steve Austin Unleashed podcast that is…

      • Gesus Oliver

        why not ours?

        • Gesus Oliver

          good answer.

    • Alex Gallardo

      All the time

  • packerpf

    how is eva marie still on the wwe roster?

  • Michael

    Paul Heyman needs to bring back his Zack Morris phone

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Hats off to Heyman!!!!

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Heyman is a god

  • Xavier

    I like the part where he said “my client Brock Lesnar conquered the streak”

    • Harlie Boucher

      And I liked the part where nobody cared when he said it, or even after the fact that it actually happened. At least the part with Brock Lesnar.

  • chris

    who conquered the what what now?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Heyman trying to get massive heel heat before Cesaro comes out.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Is Heyman talking about Kunka? Sounds mighty familiar.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      Yes!!!!

  • packerpf

    still no music for cesaro? lame…

  • Xavier

    I hope Cesaro is Bryan’s next challenger

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Haha i thought he was going for a We The People.

  • The Breaker

    The way Heyman transitions between angles during his promos is brilliant.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Cesaro is still getting a face reaction DESPITE being with Heyman!

    • The Breaker

      I think pretty much the only way people will boo Cesaro is if he’s going against Bryan.

    • packerpf

      If only wwe was willing to have more/different managers

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Agreed. I miss the days of stables and a lot of undercard talent having managers.

        • David Jr.

          I loved the Heenan Family.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And Jimmy Hart’s First Family!

    • Xavier

      Stick him in a feud with Bryan and that would change

      • Cubed56

        i think that would work well. Heyman wants the title back on his one of his clients right? So cesaro gets the shot somehow and he cant do it so Heyman brings in the heavy hitter in Lesnar for his return and sets up the match at SS

        • Xavier

          Agreed. Bryan/Lesnar makes so much sense at Summerslam at this point.

  • Michael

    Every time I hear King of Swing, I picture a swing dancing gimmick lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Or something else…

    • chris

      I picturethe monkey from jungle book

    • Dustyn

      Let’s hope he doesn’t use this for a theme then, lol

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwWT43Eb3IM

    • The Breaker

      Or… Babe Ruth?

  • Cubed56

    I like Cesaro, but putting him with Heyman i feel was the wrong move, Ceasro was on his way to a huge face turn, but putting him with Heyman has caused fans to question if they should cheer for him or not.

    • Xavier

      I think they’re setting him up too be Bryan food. Bryan is going to need heels to face after he moves on from the Authority stuff

      • Cubed56

        that would set up Lesnar’s return nicely

        • Xavier

          Great minds think alike. Totally agree

          • Cubed56

            too bad nobody listens to us, lol.

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Loved Henry’s shirt

  • Taylor

    So the authority is hell bent against destroying and ruining DB’s life….. But they give him the weekend off for his honeymoon lol. Prob shouldn’t have mentioned the honeymoon

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, even they can’t deny requested time off.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I don’t get it, it’s like they’re intentionally trying to kill any of Cesaro’s momentum

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    World’s Strongest Swing incoming

  • Harlie Boucher

    I really don’t understand why they put Cesaro with Heyman. Cesaro was getting over enough on his own, and I think he really needs to be on his own and not with a teammate or a manager.

  • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

    lol what did jbl say? big german oak tree?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Its interesting that the two main managers on the roster today (Zeb and Heyman) both worked with Undertaker during his pre- WWE days

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep! Dutch taught Taker a ton of things!

  • packerpf

    we need an international faction in wwe I always feel more entertained when you have a Canadian, Japanese, European, or Mexican faction

  • Xavier

    He almost didn’t get him up that time lol

    • Harlie Boucher

      He had trouble getting Big Show up too on Smackdown. Dudes are heavy.

      • Xavier

        Agreed.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Big Show went higher.

  • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

    poor mark henry

  • Gesus Oliver

    not sure why but I don’t care about this match.

    • Mike McCarthy

      WWE is handling him horribly.

  • Mike McCarthy

    He’s the “King of Swing” yet hasn’t used the swing in his last two matches.

    • Harlie Boucher

      He’s strong, but he probably can’t swing Henry or Big Show.

      • Mike McCarthy

        My point. Why put him against them if he can’t pull off his signature move on them?

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    I like Mark Henry. I live within 30 minutes of his hometown and it’s amazing what he has done with his life growing up in a small town.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Not a bad Neutralizer.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      given the size, not at all

  • Tom Mayer

    Ladies and gentleman I give you: Hernia Guy

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      Lol

  • Eric

    I love the no music for Cesaro and Heyman

  • Harlie Boucher

    They really need to get him some entrance music ASAP.

    • packerpf

      it’s indicative of them not really knowing what to do with him but put him out there for the fans.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ok, it is because WWE has ingrained it into our heads so much, but Cesaro needs music. BAD.

    • David Jr.

      The No Music worked for the Heel R-Truth.

      • Gesus Oliver

        and thats the Truth!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        But Truth also rapped You Suck at the fans.

        • Gesus Oliver

          you mean Hip Hop Kurt.

    • The Breaker

      They saw that people were singing along with his old music, so they had to cut it.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Wait, Cesaro is being forced as a Heel again?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep. Face with a heel manager.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      No music is ultimate heel

    • The Breaker

      It really is forced, I’m getting the feeling that they just needed something for Heyman to do in Brock’s absence so they stuck him with Cesaro.

      • Xavier

        Bryan/Cesaro is why. It’s probably gonna happen at some point in the next two months. Him being a heel makes more sense right now anyway.

        • Gesus Oliver

          It makes zero sense. the fans want to cheer him.

          • Cubed56

            i agree, but they are pushing too many faces, they need new heels to challenge DB

        • The Breaker

          They kinda do need him as a heel, but it’ll be tough to get people to boo him. Pairing him with Heyman is your best bet though.

          Bryan/Cesaro would be awesome. Hopefully they don’t just feud him with Brock when he comes back.

          • Xavier

            Me & Cubed were just discussing this and we think that Bryan/Cesaro will Segway into Bryan/Lesnar at Summerslam

          • The Breaker

            Lesnar should pretty much demand a title shot, he beat The Streak for crying out loud.

            Oh and when I said “hopefully they don’t feud him with Brock” I was talking about Cesaro, not Bryan.

          • Xavier

            I knew what you meant. I don’t think you’ll have too worry about that though. As good as Cesaro is in the ring he’s not a big enough name too put with Lesnar.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      • Xavier

        Why not make him a manager for Big E or something

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Because Teddy’s days as a good talker are FAR behind him.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Somebody pointed out to him that the only thing he’s ever done is turn chaos into tag team matches. Teddy Long, dumbfounded by the realization, immediately quit.

  • Danny Philippi

    Cesaro v. Rob Van Dam could be a complete cluster%$#@!

      Cesaro will probably win with an upper cut while rvd comes off the top then the neutralizer.

      He is NOT confirmed for tonight.

    • Harlie Boucher

      When you see a crow appear. Quote the raven, never more.

    • Xavier

      Don’t get your hopes up. I’m still not convinced he signed

      • David Jr.

        I don’t want Sting without the Police.

        • Xavier

          LOL. Walking On The Moon is a classic Police joint

      • Mike McCarthy

        Agreed, I believe reports that he agreed on terms. But I don’t think it’s official yet.

  • Dustyn

    Anyone else watching getting a black screen, but there was audio playing? I heard “Somebody Call my Mama, and then R-Truth.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Why haven’t they cut ties with Maddox yet?

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      Still better than Mike Adamle

      • Mike McCarthy

        He’ll never be Teddy Long

    • Dustyn

      I like the guy.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Yeah but GM’s are totally pointless with The Authority angle

        • Dustyn

          True.

  • packerpf

    mmm yummy lana :)

  • Danny Philippi

    Sounds like the Shield v Wyatt Family Part IV.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Lana! Dang, those legs!!!

    • Gesus Oliver

      She’s got LEGS!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And knows how to use them!

  • Harlie Boucher

    I wonder if Lana can actually wrestle.

    • packerpf

      don’t want to find out, worst mistake to make is forcing a valet to be an in ring talent.

      • Harlie Boucher

        Can’t be any worse than watching Eva Marie wrestle.

        • packerpf

          ha true, my comparison is always summer rae..it’s better to just keep Lana as a great valet/manager and being a voice.

          • Harlie Boucher

            Summer can actually wrestle though. She was a wrestler before she was a valet for Fandango.

          • Mike McCarthy

            She played football too, nobody’s giving her any credit.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        She’s training in NXT, but is far from being ready.

        • Xavier

          If she ever figures it out in the ring she’d make a great heel diva.

  • Dustyn

    Is she actually Russian?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope! She was a cheerleader in FL.

      • Dustyn

        That’s not her real accent? She fooled me!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Nope!

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      No she’s American.

    • Gesus Oliver

      They did get her off a Russian Bride website.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Comment of the night

  • KINGFRANCHISE

    shes hot!

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    There’s things being erected alright. Lmao

  • Tom Mayer

    My monument just got erected

  • Mike McCarthy

    That’s one hell of a woman.

  • Xavier

    Not feeling this gimmick. It didn’t work for Kozlov and I doubt it’ll work here

    • Mike McCarthy

      I can’t help but think it’s the exact same gimmick

      • Tom Mayer

        We will know for sure when he gets paired with santino

        • Xavier

          Lol

        • Mike McCarthy

          Still my favorite tag-team besides Too Cool

    • The Breaker

      TOTALLY agree.

  • chris

    id let her give me a bronco buster…. just sayin

  • savokes

    Poor Xaiver

  • Yazan Hamdan

    I cant take his theme seriously it sounds like something out of Pokemon…

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    I love Xavier Woods so much.

    • Harlie Boucher

      Bet it sucks for you that he was basically just snuck in the main roster just to do nothing with his career. He didn’t even get any video packages for his bring up.

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        He’s still on the main roster getting his show bonus. I’m just happy to see him.

    • packerpf

      Him and R-truth should get a legit run though..

  • David Jr.

    Ivan Drago vs. Apollo Creed. Woo-Hoo.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Xavier! He’s going to get knocked back to Angel Grove!

    • The Breaker

      If he somehow managed to beat Rusev, he would just come back as a giant monster anyway.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, then Xavier will go OVER 9000 and launch a Spirit Bomb!

        • savokes

          ON NO YOU DIDN’T! going all DBZ on us

        • The Breaker

          Could he even get the energy he needs for that when he’s inside the arena?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Of course!

          • The Breaker

            But there’s no grass or trees… and the WWE Universe is dead when he’s out there. :P

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He’ll use their death, as they emit Pyreflies… (FFX reference)

          • The Breaker

            I wouldn’t have known that one, since I never really got into Final Fantasy.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Been playing it again some on my Vita. It was the last great FF.

          • The Breaker

            That’s what I hear. From what I’ve seen of XV it might be a return to glory for the franchise.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m hoping so. But if they aren’t letting you control the full party, I won’t even bother to pick it up.

        • Alex Gallardo

          DBZ references automatically slay.

  • Danny Philippi

    WWE, where they don’t give a hoot about what you did before.

  • Alex Gallardo

    1000 comments
    Dayum

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And only half way through Raw!!!

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Cesaro wins then feuds with this guy

  • Mike McCarthy

    Truth just killed that. (not in a good way)

  • David Jr.

    What was the crowd chanting? To me it sound like Rocky, but it can’t be that.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Raw is NXT rolls on.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      You know it!

  • Danny Philippi

    1987 called and they want their Eastern European gimmick back.

  • Xavier

    2000 is looking like a reality

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      we’ll get there!

    • Alex Gallardo

      And I’ll be there for it this time.

      • Xavier

        Lol same here. I missed last week as well

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope! I want 2000 after last week!

    • Gesus Oliver

      2k is par for the course during my NXT live results on thursday nights!

  • savokes

    How high is Rusev’s ceiling though for real? can anyone see him breaking through?

    • chris

      no. Charisma of a plank of wood

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Midcard tops before comedy and release.

        • chris

          exactly. im thinking Snitsky and Tensai run.

          • Harlie Boucher

            Tensai is now on commentary permanently.

          • The Breaker

            And now he’s Jason Albert, not Tensai.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Slightly better than those. I’m betting for a IC run, then pairing with Santino or someone like that, maybe Yoshi Tatsu?

          • chris

            I dont see it lasting that long. Even when he was staring into the camera looking “intimidating” i felt as though he just couldnt be bothered to move his face.
            I think he will probably get lucky with a title… maybe the tag titles with a comedy team like you say, or maybe he gets the divas championship or something

      • Harlie Boucher

        Hey, worked for Khali. He became the World Champ! And he wrestles like a plank of wood.

        • chris

          cant argue with that

        • Xavier

          Even Khali had some charisma atleast

        • Alex Gallardo

          But was he a good champion?

      • CJ Blaze

        Exactly!

      • Mike McCarthy

        So WWE gets their talent from Ed, Edd & Eddy?

        • chris

          hey, plank atleast had a smile and personality

      • diddy

        thats an insult to a plank of wood

    • packerpf

      he’ll be forced through, but could never buy him as a world champ

    • Harlie Boucher

      I see him not doing too much. He’ll have a similar run to Mark Henry I believe.

    • CJ Blaze

      NO!

  • packerpf

    omg lana :)

    • BlazeKing

      Yep, CJ Perry!

      • packerpf

        never actually looked her up, damn she’s so fine!

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    America Rise.

  • Eric

    It’s either going to be sheamus vs BNB or Swagger vs Ziggler so it stays face vs heel next round

    • Mike McCarthy

      (applauds)

      • Eric

        You’re Welcome

  • David Jr.

    Those who don’t have the WWE App, here’s Xavier Woods entrance theme

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yrT0DpvfVI

    • Jesse Sherwood

      OMG YES YES YES YES! LOL!

    • Xavier

      Sucks that Apollo got buried (literally) after this epic entrance

  • Danny Philippi

    Which organization has the brightest future?
    A. Seattle Seahawks
    B. Oklahoma City Thunder
    C. WWE
    D. UFC

    • Harlie Boucher

      Wut?

    • packerpf

      B.

    • Mike McCarthy

      These are totally unrealistic comparisons

    • Alex Gallardo

      Sports confuse me
      And I barely understand UFC
      So my answer is potato.

    • Xavier

      The Thunder once they trade Westbrook for DeMarcus Cousins

    • Gesus Oliver

      F. Teamsters.

  • Xavier

    I was just thinking about this. I think the problem with Warrior’s title reign was that they rehashed his IC feud with Rick Rude when he should of been facing EarthQuake instead. Earthquake was so over as a heel in 1990.

    • David Jr.

      Yeah, but Hogan was probably like, I’ll give this Warrior guy the title, but I get Earthquake.

      • Xavier

        Could of been the case. Warrior/Rude played 2nd fiddle to Hogan/Erthquake for sure. They ran that whiolr injury angle with Hogan that set up that match at Summerslam.

  • Xavier

    WM30 was a really good show

    • The Breaker

      I say it’s a top 5 ‘Mania, easily.

      • Xavier

        I’m not sure where I’d rank it but it’s up there for sure . Some really good matches (Bryan/HHH, Cena/Wyatt,) The big payoff of Bryan climbing the mountain and the big swerve/epic WM memory of Taker losing. Can’t ask for more as a wrestling fan

        • Cubed56

          I agree, I’m not sure its in my top 5 I’d have to think about it, but I guarantee people wont forget WM 30 because the ending of the streak.

        • The Breaker

          Agreed. We’ll all be talking about WM30 for years and years to come.

      • Cubed56

        I’d have to think about it, but its for sure a top 10

        • The Breaker

          As far as top ‘Manias, the ones that come immediately to mind are 17, 3, 20, 10, and 19. I think it’s in the mix with those, for sure.

          • Cubed56

            i agree

  • savokes

    FELLLA

  • KINGFRANCHISE

    swaggies will lose. yes or no?

    • Mike McCarthy

      no

    • Eric

      Swagger loses then BNB wins tournament

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Doubtful. I see this tourney as the way to blow off Swagger and Cesaro’s feud.

      • Eric

        They will blow off at the ppv. Winner has a title shot at the ppv so I see BNB winning

  • Harlie Boucher

    Go Sheamus! Kick Biff’s face in!

    • Scott

      Damn he does look like Biff!

  • KINGFRANCHISE

    lol, JBL he’s golden

  • James Larochelle

    If Swagger loses I figure the final will be RVD vs. BNB

    • Harlie Boucher

      Swags won’t win.

  • The Breaker

    So… Swagger goes over here? Can you really see it? It would have to happen so that Cesaro faces Swags again.

    • Mike McCarthy

      again?

      • The Breaker

        Well, apparently not. Haha.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    I wish Zeb would do a Warrior tribute

    • Gesus Oliver

      His facial hair is kind of shaped like his face paint.

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        I WAS THINKING THAT, lol.

        • Gesus Oliver

          I know your body partner.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            EWWWWWWW!!!!

  • Gesus Oliver

    I was just thinking. Are we all upset with Nancy Grace because we are all on steroids?

    • packerpf

      ddp’s comments on her were awesome, he wasn’t going to stand for her bs and let the public know

    • Jesse Sherwood

      She owes Warrior’s family a public apology. WWE needs to send Dana some legal counsel in addition to the aides.

      • Gesus Oliver

        They send her Aids?

      • Gesus Oliver

        But seriously I do agree. Just slander on her part.

    • KINGFRANCHISE

      we all have been juicing since the 80′s according to nancy!

  • Mike McCarthy

    We’re being graced with a matchup of two former United States champions that you just remembered actually held the title.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      I didn’t remember that.

      • Mike McCarthy

        You did after you read it :p

    • packerpf

      when did sheamus have the us title? I know he had the title from cena, but don’t remember the us..

      • Mike McCarthy

        Won it from Daniel Bryan

        • Mike McCarthy

          He defended it against Bryan during the WrestleMania 27 dark match, which ended in a no contest leading to a jobber battle royale. Lost it a month later to Kofi Kingston.

  • KINGFRANCHISE

    who will join zebs collation next? 3MB MAYBE??

    • Tom Mayer

      Sin cara

    • Xavier

      Ryback & Axel

    • Harlie Boucher

      WOO WOO WOO!

      • savokes

        “serious” Zack Ryder killed off “The Broski”

      • Xavier

        Ryder with Zeb would be epic

        • Jesse Sherwood

          It would be Ryder’s TRUE Last Rezort.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Maybe an NXT call up?

  • Scott

    Obviously gonna be Shield vs Evolution

  • chris

    #JBLsSECRETSAUCE

  • savokes

    /Did Sheamus just try a Bryan Flying Knee

    • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

      lol I think so

    • KINGFRANCHISE

      he did!

  • packerpf

    I’d like to see JBL be a manager, bring in some young workers and let him groom them.

    • Tom Mayer

      He can groom them by throwing them out of their own dressing rooms

    • Jesse Sherwood

      JBL and ADR… Oh, the irony!!!

      • packerpf

        haha well they’d bring back the long limo then :P

  • KINGFRANCHISE

    no one taps to the swagger lock

  • Xavier

    The fans are into this match

    • James Larochelle

      Swaggamania?

  • Gesus Oliver

    Am I the only one who thinks this raw is boring?

    • Mike McCarthy

      yes

    • Xavier

      If you were expecting it too be like last week then you came into this RAW with too many expectations

      • Gesus Oliver

        I’m not stupid. I was just hopping for more than a thrown together tournament for a meaningless title.

        • Xavier

          I agree with that

        • Mike McCarthy

          We’d be getting all these matches anyway, it’s better that they’re at least worth something.

    • KINGFRANCHISE

      nope.

    • KINGFRANCHISE

      whats needed to liven up RAW?

      • Cubed56

        The Shield

  • packerpf

    Sheamus saving us all from a swagger chance to ruin cesaro’s run, well at least in the ring..

  • KINGFRANCHISE

    the swag man loss….awww

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’M AFRAID I’VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS FOR ZIGGLER FANS

    • Harlie Boucher

      :(

    • Avalanchian

      Cesaro vs Barrett to determine #1 so obvious. And Cesaro wins

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Break out the hand grenades,
    Cute girls, it’s time to play,
    Explosions, to the BRAIN!!!
    Going out in STYLE!!!
    Whoa-oa-oaoaoa-oa-oa-oaoa!
    Whoa-oa-oaoaoa-oa-oa-oaoa!
    Whoa-oa-oaoaoa-oa-oa-oaoa!
    World goes wild… WOO!!!

    • Gesus Oliver

      I love Adam Rose.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        As do I!

        • Gesus Oliver

          Do you love Bunnies?

  • packerpf

    LOL Leo Kruger as Adam still makes me laugh too much, I liked his special forces character.

  • Scott

    Since Adam Rose is gonna be a poor mans Russell Brand, I wanna hear him sing Inside of You! Hahaha

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Or tell us to Stroke the Furry Walls!

      • Scott

        YES!!!!!

  • Xavier

    These vignettes haven’t been very good

  • Mike McCarthy

    Adam Rose’s gonna be the next Fandango, I don’t see a scenario where every fan in the world doesn’t get that song stuck in their heads.

  • CJ Blaze

    Did anyone think Swagger was going to win?

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      I did actually. Sheamus hasn’t done anything for a while

    • James Larochelle

      To set up a Cesaro v Swagger final I could have seen it.

    • Harlie Boucher

      I didn’t.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hoped so, but it looks like we are getting something a little less predictable. Now I’m calling for Barrett to win.

      • James Larochelle

        I think you’re right.

  • Danny Philippi

    If Raw is going to be NXT Plus,
    is NXT going to be Indi-pendence?

  • BlazeKing

    Here’s my current ex-girlfriend and my future ex-girlfriend!

  • Mike McCarthy

    a 4-part tribute? HELL YEAH

  • Harlie Boucher

    Poor Sandow. I like him and they just dropped him.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Oh Damien….

  • Xavier

    They completely dropped Sandow’s gimmick as well as jobbing him out.

    • The Breaker

      I was one of those that thought Sandow got over even though he lost to Cena. And… welp, I was dead wrong.

  • The Breaker

    I initially didn’t like that they went away from the Leo Kruger character, but I’m loving Adam Rose! His gimmick over-the-top ridiculous!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Maybe…just maybe, Sandow wins?

  • Tom Mayer

    Hahah sandow

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sandow is about to be destroyed. What did he do to get in the doghouse?!?!

    • Gesus Oliver

      be smarter than you.

    • Mike McCarthy

      He upstaged John Cena

    • savokes

      I still say he was one of the superstars that failed the wellness tests that the WWE didn’t reveal names out of

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    Damien Sandow > Big Show

    • Colleen

      He has grown on me.

      • Gesus Oliver

        You’re Welcome.

    • The Breaker

      Sandow has a tremendous upside, but for whatever reason, he’s gotten the short end of the stick.

      • Harlie Boucher

        Just like Ziggler has been getting forever.

        • The Breaker

          It’s even more of a travesty with Ziggler, IMO.

  • Danny Philippi

    Sandow’s Pipebomb couldn’t blow a stick house in.

  • Splat

    Sandow just wants to be touched.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Here comes the KO

  • Xavier

    Sandow going to sleep

  • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

    this is dragging

  • Mike McCarthy

    called it.

  • Danny Philippi

    Did the bell ring? Guess not.

  • Harlie Boucher

    What a pointless filler segment.

  • Splat

    Poor Sandow.

  • savokes

    DEP!

  • Danny Philippi

    DEB!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    DEP!!!

  • Xavier

    Does anyone know if Sandow failed a drug test? I remember back in October Richard reported that someone failed a test but officials wouldn’t give out the name

    • Tom Mayer

      I’m sure it was orton

      • Xavier

        Doubt it this time

    • savokes

      I mean I don’t know for sure…but it almost had to be him, it would explain the sudden fall from grace

  • The Breaker

    “We’re next!” Love it!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Wow Sandow is really getting buried with all this mic time.

  • Eric

    Well at least Sandow got a mic tonight #Sandowdeservesit

    • Gesus Oliver

      pretty much what I just said.

      • Eric

        Yeah I was typing on my phone and didn’t see it, so pretty much

  • Jesse Sherwood

    1200 before hour 3! AWESOME guys!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    As reported by Richard Gray, The Rock is penciled in the WrestleMania XXXI card. Who should The Rock face?
    A. Daniel Bryan
    B. Brock Lesnar
    C. Randy Orton
    D. John Cena

    • BlazeKing

      E. The Crock

      Really, HHH *did* make comments about him, Brock, & Batista about people coming back just to get the title.

    • Xavier

      Lesnar is likely

    • Gesus Oliver

      Premium content SHHHH!

      • Mike McCarthy

        Actually, it says it in the title of the post. Which can be viewed by anybody. Danny didn’t reveal who he’s penciled in against.

        • Gesus Oliver

          SHHHH!

    • Taylor

      I’m tired of the rock in the main event. Turn the page already

      • Gesus Oliver

        Paige*

    • chris

      Stone Cold.

    • Mike McCarthy

      El Torito

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      Undertaker

    • The Breaker

      Out of those choices, Lesnar is most likely, since that was already in the cards before Rock got hurt.

    • Cubed56

      None of the above

  • Harlie Boucher

    I’m here!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      DEP!

  • Danny Philippi

    CLAP CLAP CLAP YOUR HANDS!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The crowd is going with Bray…

  • savokes

    Well, i was about to say it was nice the Cole was giving this entrance its due silence……buuuuuuut No

  • Taylor

    Just bought my tix for Money in the Bank at the Garden!! First live event in 7yrs! So pumped!!

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      heck yeah!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      WOO! That’s a great show to go to Taylor!

    • CJ Blaze

      Have fun! I would love to go to MITB

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The mood lighting for Bray’s promo… I love it!

    • The Breaker

      Much better than Sin Cara’s, lol

  • David Jr.

    Bray Wyatt’s going to take out any who’s waiting until
    tomorrow to turn in their tax return.

    • BlazeKing

      I’d literally lol if I saw him in a H&R Block commercial!

  • savokes

    Money on the mic

    • Jesse Sherwood

      GOLD!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Move over Gas Pedal we have a new worst rap song.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Hoeski?

  • Gesus Oliver

    Had I known about this Wyatt gimmick earlier I would have invested stock into a match company.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      lol

      • Gesus Oliver

        *sigh* I’m for ever getting out of the bit coin pit.

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          i had a dream i made fun of bit coins

    • BlazeKing

      That’s what you get for not watching FCW two years ago!

  • Xavier

    This feud has been great

  • Xavier

    Holy Crap what a promo

    • Jesse Sherwood

      This is what WWE needs right now. People who invest TOTALLY into their gimmicks.

    • savokes

      Let’s hope Cena is up to par

  • packerpf

    Bray Wyatt’s promos are solid gold, wwe needs to ensure they don’t mess up this gimmick

  • Cubed56

    Abigail= nicki bella

    • Mike McCarthy

      Kharma would’ve made a great Sister Abigail before she lost all that weight.

      • Cubed56

        that would’ve been awesome

      • BlazeKing

        What’s funny is that she gained the weight to become Awesome Kong in the first place. She was slimmer when she started out wrestling.

  • Tom Mayer

    How awesome would it be if Nikki turned out to be sister Abigail? :)

  • Gesus Oliver

    Is that Josh Tucker?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “Last thing I need is another push. No one wants to see that!” Money by Cena!

    • savokes

      LOVED it

  • Cubed56

    And….Cena ruins another segment

  • The Breaker

    And now Cena’s gonna come out and make fun of Wyatt and make his character look dumb. See the thing is, Wyatt is in a crazy, elaborate gimmick, but Cena is pretty much a normal guy. It’s a strange imbalance.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Haha “another push nobody wants to see that”, no John we dont.

  • Xavier

    A pro-Cena crowd isn’t good for Cena. He cuts better promos in front of hostile crowds

  • Harlie Boucher

    Let’s go Cena!

  • The Breaker

    Cena…. SHUT UP!

  • chris

    did cena just quote heath ledger?

  • Taylor

    Real up to date jokes from Cena as usual

  • packerpf

    Pretty bad when wyatt can come out and have a killer promo and cena can come out and just blah it up..

  • Bryan N.

    “The last thing I need is another push” legit laughed out loud

    • Xavier

      Lol same here

  • The Breaker

    *to the tune of Cena’s theme song* John Cena sucks, John Cena sucks…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That was great last week!

  • Danny Philippi

    Cena promos are the new piss breaks.

  • Mike McCarthy

    It’s pretty bad when the face of PG tries to sell Bray’s sex appeal

  • The Breaker

    This is horrible.

  • BlazeKing

    “Google Machine” – I see Cena’s been chatting with Bully Ray!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    OMG!!! WTH did I just see?!?!

  • Scott

    Cena is making me nauseous right now

    • packerpf

      right this promo is so meh..especially after Bray had a great promo too

  • packerpf

    See bray and cena in a hell in a cell match make it happen!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This is just getting sad…

    • Taylor

      Pathetic

  • Cubed56

    This is so stupid!

    • David Jr.

      Don’t worry John Cena’s going to get audited for this, Bray Wyatt knows a guy in the IRS.

      • Cubed56

        lol.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Guys im sorry we have to witness this.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Bathroom break

  • The Breaker

    It’s so stupid that Cena is just able to destroy Bray’s gimmick just because he can be a “normal” guy and point out how ridiculous his gimmick is. Just play along with kayfabe, darn it! This is wrestling!

  • KINGFRANCHISE

    the cornyness of cena…gotta love it!

  • Scott

    THANK GOD BRAY CALLED BS ON THAT!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bray with a great counter to the BAKA!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    This is one reason why I really do not like Cena. For once can he take a feud seriously. Smh. After a killer Raw last week the status quo is restored.

  • Cubed56

    No,no,no, when Cena gets serious, we get a typical Cena match, 95% him getting his ass beat, than bang one AA and the match is over.

  • packerpf

    steel cage no! hell in a cell!

    • BlazeKing

      Steel cage 1st, hiac 2nd.

      • Harlie Boucher

        Then a normal one on one to blow it off.

      • packerpf

        I just don’t want some lame escape ending over a real finish

        • BlazeKing

          It seems like they try to go for pinfalls more than escapes now.

        • Cubed56

          I would only like a walk out finish if Bray leaves Cena lying in his own blood, then calmly walks out the cage door.

      • Gesus Oliver

        Kennel From Hell Match.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “Without the Family, you can’t win!” Yet Cena was his first clean Singles loss.

    • Mike McCarthy

      He should’ve just said “..except for the WWE World champion”

  • Yazan Hamdan

    I still cant beleive he use to be Husky Harris…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’s the difference between a character you develop and believe in and one you don’t. Bray believes he’s Bray. He was forced into Husky.

      • David Jr.

        What the hell was Husky Harris suppose to be anyway, a guy who’s Husky?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    He’s got the whole crowd… In his hands…

  • The Breaker

    “He’s got the whole world in His hands…”

  • Scott

    Good lord Bray is amazing on the mic!!!!!!

  • KINGFRANCHISE

    bray..is golen

    • Gesus Oliver

      Golem or Golden?

      • savokes

        …..Yes

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yes.

        • Gesus Oliver

          Sister Abigail is his precious.

      • Harlie Boucher

        No?

        • Gesus Oliver

          YES!YES! YES!

  • The Breaker

    Cut out everything that Cena said, and that was a really good segment.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    does anyone think The Shield match is going to turn out to be a triple threat as a way of HHH sticking it to them?

    • packerpf

      not yet, but I think by the end of summer, to really sow the seeds of splitting as they became a pain in his side.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I have the feeling it might be. He had Maddox tell them they were in a match, not a tag match…

  • Danny Philippi

    Hope this steel cage match sees some crimson. Not the football team, though.

    • chris

      how about the TNA character?

  • Xavier

    Cena was really bad tonight. He should of stuck with the measuring stick stuff. Cena in front of Pro-Cena crowds is never good

    • Cubed56

      IMO most the time Cena is never good, its the same old, same old. I do agree however, the measuring stick stuff was new and actually refreshing and a bit of a character tweak.

      • Xavier

        I disagree with most of the time but in front of pro Cena crowds he’s pretty bad.

        • Cubed56

          Its not atrocious, but if its not a pro-cena crowd all he does is pander to them to silence them a bit, or jump on the coattail of whoever is hot at the time, put them over on the mic and then proceed to his lame speech.

    • Tom Mayer

      I try really hard to like cena, in fact I want to like him…but he makes it impossible to.

  • Cubed56

    That could’ve been one of the best back and forth promos in a long time and then Cena ruins it with his terrible attempt at humor, can anyone recall the last time hes been serious all from the start to the end of a feud?

    • Harlie Boucher

      Him and The Rock was some good stuff.

      • Cubed56

        it was, but he had the corny rap in it.

    • packerpf

      last I really remember was him and angle..

    • Xavier

      Cena/Punk/Hart segment in Montreal or Cena/Rock from RAW on that legends panel

      • Cubed56

        im not talking about on promo, i mean when is the last time he went all the way through a feud without one of these lame ass promos we just had

        • Xavier

          Cena/Bryan I think

          • Cubed56

            good call.

  • James Larochelle

    Shield vs. 3MB and Evolution comes out!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    DAH DA!

  • packerpf

    no summer rae!! woohoo sexy layla.

  • savokes

    Would “the one who shall not be named” be the best sparring partner for Bray on the mic?

    • Harlie Boucher

      Who?

      • savokes

        Mr. Pipebomb

        • The Breaker

          SES vs. Wyatts!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Voldemort.

    • packerpf

      their back and forth would be great

  • Harlie Boucher

    I’m tired of Santino. Come on Fandango!

  • Justin

    Why such a big john cena crowed anything on that

  • Jesse Sherwood

    LAYLA 1000x >Summer Rae!

    • Nick k

      I wouldn’t say that at all, summer has had a lot of really good matches on nxt. Layla is pretty good though and I don’t think she gets enough credit.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yes, but considering what we now know about Summer Rae, she can stay in NXT for awhile.

  • Mike McCarthy

    …Layla smells like CTCrunch?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Apparently. That’s nice!

    • BlazeKing

      You gotta watch the backstage footage, lol. He said “She smells like cinnamon….toast crunch” and it had me dying!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    Just thought of something, after this feud with Bray Wyatt, what is next for John Cena? He can’t become WWE World Champ. The Shield isn’t going to attack him. And Triple H has said John Cena is “best for business”.

    • Harlie Boucher

      Him and Batista.

      • Mike McCarthy

        That’s literally the only step.

  • David Jr.

    Are they turning Summer Rae face or sending her back with Charlotte and Sasha Banks?

    • Mike McCarthy

      No sign yet, but I hope this has to do with a BFF’s call up

  • Mike McCarthy

    Sick of Santino, Emma deserves better.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I know I’m surrounded by Paige fans here, but I think Emma is the best diva in the WWE.

    • packerpf

      I prefer emma over paige also.

  • BlazeKing

    Bah Gawd Layla!!!!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Emma’s character is dying a slow death thanks to Santino. Now Layla? WTF?

    • Harlie Boucher

      Hell, at least Layla is getting TV time now.

      • Gesus Oliver

        who cares?

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        oh boy, lol

    • The Breaker

      It’s too soon to say that about Emma. And Layla, well, she’s getting more of a spotlight than she would if she were involved with the other Divas.

      • Gesus Oliver

        Are you kidding me? She was a huge part of NXT. Not to mention having a pretty entertaining following. Now she has an untelevised entrance and an inability to shine.

        • The Breaker

          It’s the problem with getting called up to the main roster. But she’s far from done. You can pretty much guarantee she’ll feud with Paige for the Divas Title after she’s done with AJ.

          • Gesus Oliver

            yes but they’re doing major damage to her character.

          • The Breaker

            I agree that they’re building her character all wrong, but they can fix it.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    I wish Emma would go on her own. The matches she’s had vs Paige are amazing

    • Harlie Boucher

      Yeah, I was sad that they stuck her with Santino.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Why couldn’t Emma move on after she friendzoned Santino?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Because Vince’s best skill is burying promising talent

      • Harlie Boucher

        That’s why the next face of the Diva’s division will be Eva Marie. The next Kelly Kelly!

        • Mike McCarthy

          She was pretty bad at first, but after a couple years she became one of the better divas of a lackluster division.

          • Harlie Boucher

            I didn’t think so. I hated Kelly Kelly. Thought she was worthless in every aspect.

  • jason witten 82

    Anyone else think fandango looks like Steven Richards?

  • Xavier

    Layla can actually work

  • Danny Philippi

    Squash match for Emma. Bad news.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    And the criminal misuse of Emma continues……sigh.

  • chris

    that right there is why the divas division is a disgrace… a fall off the second rope and she gets pinned? Ive had tougher steaks.

    • David Jr.

      That’s how the Wrestlemania 10 main event ended.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Emma isn’t Yokozuna.

  • Dustyn

    Grab the mask Kane!

  • packerpf

    I hate kane like this..this submissiveness is meh..

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Especially since he is being berated by a sub…

      • packerpf

        giggity

  • Yazan Hamdan

    I am loving heel Steph!

  • The Breaker

    Steph is going to turn Kane back into the Big Red Monster!

  • Cubed56

    Could Steph possibly give Kane his mask back, or will Kane take it back after this?

  • Danny Philippi

    Dixie Carter should takes notes on Steph’s promos.

    • Harlie Boucher

      I’m so glad she’s off TV now.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        She’s back as of last week.

    • BlazeKing

      Dixie got X-Pac heat on a weekly basis!

    • packerpf

      no she should take notes from linda..stay far away from the industry..

      • Jesse Sherwood

        AMEN!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Steph gives one hell of a pep talk.

  • Dustyn

    Please come back old Kane.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    His precious!!!

  • Harlie Boucher

    Do it Kane!!

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      i’m so happy right now

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    OH MY GOD MASKED KANE!!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    HELL YEAH!

  • The Breaker

    He used the word ‘eviscerate’! The old Kane is back!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bryan/Kane for ER! The breakup of Hell No last year FINALLY gets a payoff!

  • Xavier

    Bryan/Kane at Extreme Rules?

  • Danny Philippi

    Daniel Bryan vs Kane at Extreme Rules. Good feud for Daniel in his first feud as WWE Champion.

  • savokes

    He should bust in on DBry and Brie’s honeymoon, thatd be awesome

  • Tom Mayer

    Oh no Bryan is going to have a bad experience with nipples and a car battery

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It was Shane’s boys…

  • David Jr.

    So Daniel Bryan vs. Kane at Extreme Rules?, Inferno Match? excuse me PG, a ring of fire match?

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      i’m SO cool with that idea

    • Gesus Oliver

      Spicy Apron match.

    • The Breaker

      After the Ring of Fire match between Kane and Bray, not sure how much I want it.

  • Scott

    Ummmm didnt USA already have a show about a doctor who makes housecalls? Haha

    • savokes

      haha, yes…this new show looks like a cross between Royal Pains and House

  • Justin

    Is it me or is this crowed bad ?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They are a bit mild.

      • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

        they were just SO good last week, we’re expecting that.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yeah, I know. But they shouldn’t be. We need hot crowds!

          • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

            They’re in Birmingham. Not a hot spot. We need Chicago or New York crowds constantly

        • Justin

          Even so this crowed was way to pro cena.

    • packerpf

      very few chants and pretty quiet

    • Xavier

      Nah not at all. There just not a smarky crowd but it doesn’t mean their bad though

      • Cubed56

        agree, but it seems that creative always really steps it up and gives us much better shows when they’ve got hostile crowds

        • Xavier

          True, like last week.

          • Cubed56

            absolutely, now what is stopping them from putting together shows like that all year round

      • Nick k

        Nah they were pretty bad because they were quiet, the evolution reunion should’ve had a huge pop and they just sat there. Kinda a shame really.

  • James Larochelle

    Bryan vs. Kane…the match we’ve been feeding you as filler for months now as a main event because you know Kane has a mask now.

  • Cubed56

    Im sorry, but am i the only one who is not intrigued by the return of masked kane

    • Xavier

      I’m not intrigued by Kane in general really. There isn’t much they can do with him that they haven’t already with him. THis is the problem with constantly turning someone face/heel all the time

      • Cubed56

        Agreed.

  • Cubed56

    Great promo video!!!! lol

  • Harlie Boucher

    It’s hard for an egg to become a bird, but an egg can never fly? What?

    • packerpf

      to become a bird the egg must hatch, but without hatching the egg never becomes a bird and thus can’t fly.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    These Bo Dallas promos are soo cheesy….

    • Mike McCarthy

      That’s the point, he’s a heel and Vince thinks the best way to get heels over is to annoy everybody.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bo Dallas… PLEASE lock yourself into a closet and don’t come out until you are driven mad.

    • Harlie Boucher

      I’m really dreading him being on the main roster.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’m hoping he gets the Bo Dallas treatment again. AKA, be on the roster a month before being dropped back down to NXT.

        • Harlie Boucher

          I’d much rather see him get released. I’d be happy with him having a role like JTG though.

    • The Breaker

      I don’t see why you all hate it so much, it’s different and interesting.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He sounds like he is MR! And I am being REALLY nice with that one!

        • Scott

          Kinda looks it too……man I am going to hell for that one

          • Jesse Sherwood

            We both are Scott. But I have a long list. I’ll be welcomed as a hero!

        • The Breaker

          Hahaha, that’s part of his gimmick. He’s completely delusional and thinks he’s everyone’s hero.

    • packerpf

      honestly he’s not bad, but he’s cheesy and needs to be put with someone.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He needs a mouthpiece in the worst way, and his ring work is nothing special. Midcard at best.

  • packerpf

    This eerie promo again

  • Gesus Oliver

    I love BO’s vignettes.

    • The Breaker

      His promos as champ were soooo hilarious!

      “I’m gonna make a special stop in Bolivia to deliver 10,000 squirt guns to starving children, it’s gonna be a blast!” XD

      • Gesus Oliver

        He has a character that I’m afraid won’t translate well to a live crowd. I’m interested to see how he tweaks it and gets over.

        • The Breaker

          True, it might not play well to a larger crowd. We’ll see.

  • Scott

    God now watching his last speech, its really eerie like he knew he was about to go…..

  • savokes

    You know, its an odd phenomenon, but sometimes people have a sense of when their time is up…this promo almost seems like he knew his time was coming to an end

  • Xavier

    Is it the Ascension?

    • Mike McCarthy

      I was thinking about it, I’d consider it a possibility

    • Cubed56

      too soon

    • Harlie Boucher

      Who would the 3rd person be? Kane?

  • Taylor

    I feel like if wwe didn’t have the network they would not be pumping up the warrior like this

  • Mike McCarthy

    This is gonna be a great match.

  • Xavier

    I’d love too see Ziggler/Cesaro at some point

    • packerpf

      after cesaro gets a secondary title that’d be a great launching point for their feud.

      • Mike McCarthy

        the last thing Ziggler needs is another secondary title feud.

        • packerpf

          that’s his career status though, suffice to say he just wasn’t over enough to maintain main event picture status.

  • Gesus Oliver

    I’m afriad I’ve got some BAD NEWS!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Now that I think about it the line “I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news” should be Dave Meltzer’s line.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      He’s such a jobber

      • Gesus Oliver

        Who is a bigger jobber Dave or CJ?

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          That’s a hard one. I’d have to say Dave.

  • Justin

    Anyone see a push for ziggler this year or he had his shot and swagger messes it up for him ?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I think he’ll get one more. Possibly through a MITB case again.

    • Xavier

      Lol very true, honestly though I was never really high up on Big E. He doesn’t have that “IT” factor too me

  • Xavier

    I’m actually digging these Godzilla trailers

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      me too, man. I can’t wait! Huge Godzilla fan. Used to have a bunch of VHS with all the old movies on it.

      • Xavier

        I just hope it’s better then the remake they did in 98

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          judging by the previews, it already is. No Hank Azaria or Matthew Broderick.

          • Xavier

            Lol true

      • David Jr.

        Got to Love King Kong vs. Godzilla and Godzilla vs. Mega-Godzilla. Though the original is still the best.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Bryan Cranston’s in it, I love him but I keep dreading the fact he was overlooked for Lex Luthor.

    • David Jr.

      It’s got to be better than the 98 movie with Matthew Broderick.

    • Scott

      Didnt Guillermo Del Toro direct this new one? I think I remember seeing that

      • David Jr.

        Gareth Edwards.

  • Cubed56

    I hope to god Cesaro doesn’t win this tourney or the ic title. We all know what happens to the ic titel holders over the last couple years. People said the exception was gonna be Big E and look at him now.

  • packerpf

    lol another leo kruger as adam promo hahaha

    • Harlie Boucher

      Still wonder why they changed him. I thought the Leo Kruger gimmick was doing well. Though I do like his Adam Rose one.

      • packerpf

        Ya I think we’re in the minority but I thought his special forces character had some promise..

        • Jesse Sherwood

          It did, but it wasn’t his. He didn’t really like it, and asked to change to the Adam Rose gimmick.

          • packerpf

            he seems to really be embracing this character so maybe he is more of a light hearted person and thought he’d be better then a more serious character. I just laugh seeing him as adam though because I always picture him as leo

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    “Don’t be a lemon, be a rosebud” Love that line

  • Harlie Boucher

    Come on Ziggler!

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      I think BNB will win this one since he just started wrestling again

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Digging the heck out of BNB’s Cape!

  • Mike McCarthy

    I wish he’d use his gavel the way Finlay used the Shillelagh

  • Eric

    BOOM

  • The Breaker

    Adam Rose has awesome music. I can’t wait to see how big his entourage will be when he debuts!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Will it be like the ho train?

      • The Breaker

        I think it’s implied that they do freaky stuff on his bus, but it’s just supposed to be his party crew in storyline, lol

        • Alex Gallardo

          THAT AIN’T PG

          • The Breaker

            He’s pretty much Russel Brand from Get Him To The Greek lol

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      I prefer his original World Goes Wild theme to his current Break Away one. WWE needs to get the rights to use World Goes Wild.

      • The Breaker

        Woah, I didn’t even realize they changed it! But you’re right, the original one is better.

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    I love BNB and Ziggler so much. Both should win this match.

  • chris

    ziggler intro taken over by an adam vid? ouch

    • Jesse Sherwood

      No, he had an entrance before the break.

      • chris

        ahhh musta missed it

        • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

          yeah he had a cool Warrior shirt on…by cool I mean the same one everyone has but cut up the way he does

  • Gesus Oliver

    Every time I see Ziggler fly around the ring I feel bad for Amy Schumer.

  • packerpf

    So is BNB going to hit a nice streak of wins again? I’ve been waiting for him to get back in the ring since his visa issues.

    • Gesus Oliver

      I’ve got some BAD NEWS!

      • packerpf

        The Barrett Barrage is coming to town?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ziggler has one of the prettiest dropkicks in the business!

    • The Breaker

      Better than Orton’s, IMO.

  • Harlie Boucher

    This main event match is going to be SHORT. If it’ll even be an match.

    • packerpf

      nah they’ll go 10 minutes over

    • Mike McCarthy

      Yeah, they wouldn’t want to cutoff a rerun of Chrisley Knows Best!!!

  • Xavier

    Why couldn’t they atleast put my boi Titus O’Neal in this tourney

  • Xavier

    I heard it was 78000

    • Cubed56

      i thought it was 68,000. I could be wrong though, either way whats the point lying about attendance?

    • David Jr.

      It was actually Dave Meltzer who reported that, if you believe him, then it’s true.

      • Cubed56

        i saw it another site, i forgot which one, ill have to look into it and get back to you, but in the interview Vince himself admitted to fudging the attendance numbers

  • Jesse Sherwood

    1500 guys! 1784 is in sight!!!

    • Alex Gallardo

      YES

      • Gesus Oliver

        No

        • Alex Gallardo

          Way to kill my vibe….

          • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

            YES YES YES YES YES YES

          • Alex Gallardo

            Much better.

          • Tom Mayer

            Because Miley doesn’t do that at all ;)

          • Alex Gallardo

            OOOOOOOHHH
            BOY
            BYE

          • Tom Mayer

            Just remember to turn the swag off before bed, or else you might wake up homeless and working at mcdonalds

          • Alex Gallardo

            Swag is outdated
            along with YOLO.

        • David Jr.

          Maybe so.

  • Harlie Boucher

    CM Punk chant going on the app. I hear this all the time on the app segments.

  • Scott

    Lets keep it up! Lets see 2000!!!!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Lawyered!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Here’s a thought guys: What if it is The Shield vs. the entire Roster?

    • Gesus Oliver

      Then they will have to go through a lot of people. Boot up JTG

      • Xavier

        Justin Gabriel as well lol

      • Scott

        Brooklyn Brawler!!!

    • Xavier

      Didn’t they kind of do that a few months back?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        10 vs. 3.

    • Alex Gallardo

      They just better not hurt my bae.

    • packerpf

      Shield vs wyatts and batista and randy?

    • savokes

      I actually had the same thought…was thinking like a gauntlet match through the entire roster

  • justin

    I’m not trying to be a fan boy but why does dolph lose like 90 percent of the time. He losses as a heel than as a face, I just don’t get it does he have heat or something ?

  • chris

    The Shield vs The APA

    • Mike McCarthy

      Wake up.

      • chris

        Mean.

    • Harlie Boucher

      The BROOD!

  • Xavier

    Fans crapping on a Ziggler match, what’s up with that

    • justin

      told you this crowed sucks

      • Xavier

        Can’t get mad when they crap on your faves but condone it when they do it to others though

        • justin

          they just don’t seem to know what they want that is all

    • Mike McCarthy

      jetlag

  • The Breaker

    Now they’re chanting for CM Quitter…

    • Mike McCarthy

      He was my favorite wrestler for years but even I don’t understand why they still chant for him

      • The Breaker

        It’s basically a chant they use for telling WWE they’re bored or don’t like what they’re seeing. It doesn’t have anything to do with Punk anymore, really.

    • David Jr.

      They are pushing Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Cesaro. What does the crowd want?

      • Gesus Oliver

        JTG

      • The Breaker

        If there’s something to complain about, they’ll do it.

  • David Jr.

    Yeah, Matt is right and who would know better about the Silverdome than him and me.
    Fun Fact, my grandfather helped in the design of the Silverdome.

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      That’s awesome! My great grandfather engineered and helped build the Belle Isle Bridge

      • David Jr.

        Our ancestors building Michigan landmarks.

    • Cubed56

      that’s awesome, did he also help with Ford Field, or was he already retired long before that?

      • David Jr.

        No my grandfather died in 1993.

        • Cubed56

          I’m sorry.

  • Scott

    Dream Match to play on 2K14….Shield vs NWO (Hall, Nash, Hogan)

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    CM Punk chants? Really? Hell I wouldn’t mind if they chanted Sting, but there’s no reason to chant Punk right now.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Voldemort! Voldemort!

    • Harlie Boucher

      Let’s go Harry! Voldemort Sucks!

      • Scott

        No no no….LETS GO VOLDY!!! Hahahaha

  • Jesse Sherwood

    From Punk to This Is Awesome… SMH!

    • Xavier

      Hijacking is stupid PERIOD

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      Good to know that I was not hearing things…..lol

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      I know, right?!

  • packerpf

    Here comes the bad news!

  • chris

    Zigglers hair looks like supernoodles

    • Mike McCarthy

      oodles of noodles**

  • Mike McCarthy

    Punk chants and now This is Awesome? This whole crowd is just a derp

    • The Breaker

      Yeah, not the best crowd tonight.

  • Xavier

    Good match here

    • Harlie Boucher

      Goldberg….Goldberg…Goldberg…

  • packerpf

    Crowd pops for one moment while ignoring the rest

  • Mike McCarthy

    It’s safe to say this is just a bad crowd

    • Alex Gallardo

      but guise punk amirite guise?
      Guise?
      Am the only one chanting?

  • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

    best match of the night

  • packerpf

    The bad news bullhammer!

  • Harlie Boucher

    Booo

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BOOM!

  • Danny Philippi

    Who do you pick to win the Intercontinental #1 Contender’s Tournament?
    A. Cesaro
    B. RVD
    C. Sheamus
    D. Bad News Barrett

    • Xavier

      D.

    • Harlie Boucher

      Cesaro!

    • packerpf

      Cesaro, but a Sheamus vs Cesaro final should be great

    • James Larochelle

      D. Cesaro loses due to a swagger distraction and BNB beats an injured Sheamus and BNB beats RVD in the final

  • Xavier

    Goodnight Ziggler. Stay classy WNW

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You out X?

      • Xavier

        Nah lol. Just telling WNW not too lose their cool over Ziggler losing lol

        • Gesus Oliver

          WHY THE HECK DID ZIGGLER LOSE? WE WANT ZIGGLER! WE WANT ZIGGLER!

          • Xavier

            Cubed brought up a good point though. The holders of the IC/US titles haven’t been booked well at all. Ziggler may be better off

          • Harlie Boucher

            Well Ambrose gets booked good, just not as a title holder.

          • Xavier

            it helps he’s in the Shield . If he wasn’t in a faction they probably would of booked him poorly as well

          • Harlie Boucher

            Yeah, they really need to merge those two titles.

        • Harlie Boucher

          RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!

    • The Breaker

      We all know Ziggler only does his winning on Superstars.

  • Eric

    BOOM

  • packerpf

    Glad to see BNB get back on a winning streak.

    • Alex Gallardo

      He’s finally got some good news.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    There are 3 Europeans in the final 4 of this tournament in Cesaro, Sheamus and Barrett.

    • Gesus Oliver

      WE THE EURO!

    • packerpf

      RVD might as well be considered European he spends so much time in the Netherlands ha

      • Gesus Oliver

        AmsterSLAM!

        • David Jr.

          I thought he was from Highland. You know where Sean Connery and Chris Lambert are from.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Kane vignette? I like it!

  • chris

    well, i called all the IC tourney matches. very obvious.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I have a bad feeling that Kane’s gonna challenge for the title at Extreme Rules.

    • Alex Gallardo

      He just better not win.

    • Xavier

      It’s just a filler feud.

  • justin

    I Don;t think they should have taken the royal rumble streak away from kane thoughts.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Streak or Elimination record?

      • justin

        elimination record
        my bad

        • Mike McCarthy

          Lol I guess it didn’t really matter, they took both from him. And if they were gonna take it from him they should’ve put over whoever did it, if they were gonna give it to Reigns they should’ve waited a year.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Where exactly did WWE Creative lose their way with Kane you think? The first unmasking? Katie Vick? Somewhere else?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Midway after the first unmasking. I think the unmasking was a good thing, but after a while, they just lost all idea of how to build him.

      • The Breaker

        Yep, agreed.

      • Gesus Oliver

        See no evil.

        • Mike McCarthy

          That was an awesome movie, you’re in the dark my friend.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        He was never the same after that and the constant heel/face turns did him no favors.

    • packerpf

      If you really want to get into it you could argue when he started to be a henchman for DX, after that he was just a prop for someone as a force. But for sure was the starting of the storyline with lita after the unmasking.

    • Xavier

      The See No Evil Kane vs Kane May 19th BS was it for him

      • The Breaker

        Oh yeah I remember that crap.

        • Xavier

          Lol it was terrible

  • Eric

    Because of this video Kane is evil again

  • The Breaker

    I wanna see Kane light someone on fire! How about… Byron Saxton!

    • Mike McCarthy

      That’d be great, but Matt Striker is more deserving of a torch.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Can we all just settle on Michael Cole?

        • Gesus Oliver

          Can’t torch the Cole Mine!

  • Alex Gallardo

    KLJFOEIJRELK MY BAE IS APART OF THE MAIN EVENT TONIGHT I CAN’T

    • Gesus Oliver

      shut up.

      • Alex Gallardo

        lol nope.

        • Gesus Oliver

          Yup.

          • Alex Gallardo

            It ain’t happening man
            You’ll just have to deal with it
            But you can always, maybe
            Not read my comments
            Just a suggestion ;p

          • Gesus Oliver

            lol nope.

          • Alex Gallardo

            OOOH BOY DON’T GO USING MY LINES.

  • Scott

    That Kane vid was AWESOME!!!!!

  • James Larochelle

    That’s a pretty fast turnaround on that promo considering he took the mask back 15 minutes ago

  • Dustyn

    I went to WWE when they were in Edmonton last May, and Sheamus and Barrett had an awesome PPV quality match for Main Event. I suspect they will do the same with their next match.

    • The Breaker

      They always put on an entertaining, brutal match!

      • Dustyn

        They both looked battered after the match, lol!

  • CJ Blaze

    Now that’s a monster

    • Gesus Oliver

      That’s what she said.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Prediction time! Who do you guys think the opponents are?

    • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

      3 man band

      • Alex Gallardo

        Isn’t that us, and CJ though?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        You, CJ, and Alex G are in Birmingham?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Themselves, or the entire roster.

      • Yazan Hamdan

        Yeah im going with triple threat as well.

  • Danny Philippi

    Calling it now: The Shield in a triple threat match. Dean v Seth v Roman. For the U.S. Title.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And Roman wins!

    • chris

      I actually forgot about the U.S. Title

  • Alex Gallardo

    Mr. Kunka is a strict teacher.

  • justin

    In my opinion Kane should be a first ballot hall of fame when he retires.

  • Dustyn

    Is the rule still in affect that a title must be defended once in a 20 day time period?

    • packerpf

      HAHAHAHA no.

    • Mike McCarthy

      The rule is 30 and god no

    • Harlie Boucher

      Only when it’s convenient.

    • Gesus Oliver

      if you think the title needs to be defended every 20 days I’m atriad I’ve got some BAD NEWS.

      • Dustyn

        lol! It would make for better feuds though.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope. Dean went 90+ days recently without defending it.

  • packerpf

    Come on HHH don’t let us down

  • James Larochelle

    That was quite the spray…

  • packerpf

    All of the tourney losers?

  • Mike McCarthy

    ….are you kidding?

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’m brought to life again with Dean enters a ring.

  • Harlie Boucher

    Just need to get rid of the IC and US title and bring on the TV title and have them defend it at every taping. That way it can showcase some new and up comers.

  • Xavier

    What a lame surprise

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ADR, Swagger, Fandango…

  • Mike McCarthy

    ………..are you kidding?

  • Dustyn

    Whole roster?

  • http://WrestlingNewsWorld.com/ Matt

    J.O.B. Squad headed by ADR

  • Yazan Hamdan

    3MB!!!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And I was RIGHT! The whole roster!

    • savokes

      Good call Bro

  • Harlie Boucher

    Shield vs. The Roster!

  • packerpf

    Talk about a bad idea..

  • Xavier

    WWE midcard jobbers, really?

  • Dustyn

    Lumberjack?

  • Mike McCarthy

    I wouldn’t say the whole roster, just a lot of people

  • Harlie Boucher

    Jeese called it!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Rusev’s first main event

  • packerpf

    rusev without lana? come on..

    • Dustyn

      Next week. Or Main Event, or SmackDown. Sooner is better!
