Pre-Raw Commercial

Kevin Hart is there tonight. And The Authority will be addressing all Superstars at the top of the hour.

Raw Starts

Arena Segment

The entire locker room is on the stage for The Authority’s announcement. Trip’s music hits and he comes out with Steph in a black top with a very wide neckline, and a red skirt with black leather at the hips. (Black leather usually means major heel from Steph.) Trip in his normal power suit. Steph with an arm around Rollins on stage before heading to the ring. Video clip of Dr. Maroon last week. There’s a Special Olympic logo on the ramp.

Steph – Welcome to Monday Night RAW! (mixed) We’ve gathered all the Superstars and Divas out here for a meeting because we all want you to know we care, and how disconcerting it is for you to not have a WWE WHC.

Trip – Seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, WWE Superstars lay it all on the line for an opportunity to prove they’re the best, and they do that by receiving the honor of being called WWE WHC.

Steph – That’s right, because when you’re the Champion, you’re immortalized. Take, for instance, my husband, the greatest of all time, the 13 time WWE WHC! (heat) The WWE is only as strong as our Champion, that’s why it’s so disconcerting and disheartening that you have all been represented by a B+ player like Daniel Bryan.

Trip – Don’t get me wrong…

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Steph – It’s true, he is a B+ player, you’re right.

Trip – The thing about Bryan that’s disappointing, it’s not his ability, it’s his heart. He has no heart. His selfishness brought upon his refusal to defend his Championship. His refusal to give you all the opportunity you so richly deserve. His refusal to be the fighting Champion is unacceptable. You deserve better than that. The WWE ‘Universe’ deserves better than that. That’s why Steph and I are so excited, because standing on that stage could very well be the next WWE WHC.

Steph – That’s right because The Authority is all about opportunity, so who will join those who have already qualified to the WWE WHC Match at MITB. Who will join Orton (heat), Cesaro, ADR (serious heat), Sheamus (pop), and Bray Wyatt (biggest pop), we’ll find out as all of you compete in a Battle Royal.

Trip – Not everybody will be able to compete in the Battle Royal tonight. There’s certain Superstars who have refused to evolve. Certain Superstars who have refused to comply to authority. Those Superstars not in the Battle Royal will be Dean Ambrose (heat) and Roman Reigns (more heat), and also Cena (most heat).

Cena smiles wide.

Trip – Don’t get excited John, you will have an opportunity to compete, but I know how you feel about helping others, like how you wanted to help Bryan and help The Shield. Tonight you can help us. Just a short time ago my beautiful wife Steph promised the WWE ‘Universe’ that there would be a particular type of match. Because of Bryan not being able to compete, we haven’t been able to have that match, and quite frankly, you know how we hate to lie. So, you’re going to help us John, tonight you’re going to get an opportunity to join the MITBLM tonight, it just happens to be a stretcher match. And it just happens to be against Kane.

Kane’s music hits and Cena looks a little less happy. Rollins claps and smiles at Cena as an ambulance backs into the arena, by the ramp. Steph and Trip smile and laugh in the ring. The EMTs pull the stretcher out of the back and down to ringside. On announce JBL and Cole get into it over the Stretcher Match. Cole looks annoyed, then goes on to talk up Kevin Hart.

Kane out to the now empty stage and looks down at the ambulance.

Vickie – Roman, they don’t want you in it.

Reigns – What they want? Who cares what they want! If it was up to them, you’d be running coffee for the rest of your career. And that’s no way to treat a beautiful woman. Not only that, you’re a Guerrero, that means something, you should stand for that. But I could have it all wrong, you may want to kiss their butt for the rest of your life. But if you want to do that, you want to do it the right way. They’re going to want sweetener in that coffee, for sure.

In Ring Segment

There a ladder in the ring under the two straps. King and Cole talk up the WWE Network. The Wyatt Family to the ring through fans clapping and showing their camera lights.

Bray – Hahaha! You ain’t got nothing in this world man, if you ain’t got power. If you ain’t got power, we would all be tiny little mice trapped in the jungle running from (sic) our lives from tigers. Empower me. Power can be so addicting. You need power. You crave power. I just so think that power will be the downfall of all mankind, you know it man. After all, a powerful man is to be respected. But a weak man is less valuable than the dirt that soaks his clothes. Power and influence, that’s my game, man. As long as I’m living right here, right now, with you my people inside this universe, the WWE ‘Universe’, that (pointing up at the straps) right there, represents all the power I could ever need. Hahahaha! I want you do some thing for me, really quick man. I want you to look at my brothers. Take a long hard look. Judge them as you will, and know that every label your society has, they are viewed as outcasts. Worthless, like dirt. But oh, how the world works in such mysterious ways! Hahaha! At MITB, my brothers are going to fight. At MITB my brothers are going to destroy the Usos and take every bit of power they ever had! (mixed) Power, and influence. Power, and influence. Power, and influence. Power, and influence! At MITB, I will stand at the top of this ladder and I will change the world as it is forever. Because hanging above this ladder is my absolution. Hanging above this ladder is my glory. Hanging above this ladder is the change you all have been praying for. (slight pop) All I have to do is reach up and take it. When I do, and I promise you I will, I will be able to truly say that I have the whole world in my hands. 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 hand. He’s got the whole world in his hands. (Hhe fans singing along with him from the first word.) Hahaha!

Sheamus comes out to the stage.

Sheamus – Alright lad, I’m not sure you’re aware of this, but I’m not sure you’re aware of this, but it’s actually bad luck to walk under a ladder when you’re going to be involved in the biggest ladder match in WWE history. I’ll be honest Bray, you’re (garbled) for one man, talking about how you got the whole world in your hands. But why not change that tune to, How ‘Bout I Shove My Whole Boot Down Your Throat?

Trip and Steph all smiles.

Steph – That’s really going to stain.

Trip – Yeah, and what did it take her four hours to get it in the first place? There’s no ice in it!

Steph – Oh, but it’s really good. (Steph keeps sucking down her coffee.)

Backstage Segment

Renee – Welcome the principle owner of the WWE, Stephanie McMahon. How are you doing tonight?

Steph – Fantastic, we’re finally going to have a new WWE WHC. I couldn’t be better.

Renee – Steph, I want to get your prediction of who’s going to win the Battle Royal tonight.

Steph – Well, like, um, like we said earlier tonight, The Authority is all about opportunity. And, may the, may the best man win.

Steph stumbles through her words as she looks down and her coffee, then flees as Heyman steps into the shot.

Heyman – Well, when there’s chaos, there’s opportunity. Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and at MITB there’s both chaos and opportunity, because for the very first time ever, Renee, the WWE WHC hangs in the balance in a ladder match. A new Champion not just promised, but absolutely guaranteed, can you imagine if the WWE ‘Universe’ would be like if Bray Wyatt became the WWE WHC at MITB. What happens if Orton once again becomes the WWE WHC and The Authority truly realizes that they are omnipotent. If ADR. Then there’s Sheamus, please don’t let it be Sheamus! Only one has a strategist in their corner for the WWE WHC being decided in a ladder match, and that man has the same strategist who told you in advance, that my client, Brock Lesnar will conquer Underaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania! Now Renee, that wasn’t just a prediction, that was a spoiler. My client, Cesaro will be the WWE WHC at MITB. That’s not just a prediction, that’s a spoiler.

WWE Slam of the Week

Slater vs Rusev

Lana – Shut up! Shut up and listen! (heat) America, you live in a nation founded by weaklings. Whose insecurities are symbolized in your favorite American colors. Your men, who you blindly worship, lack conviction in their leadership. (“What?”) You are unworthy to be called men. (“What?”) Especially when you compare to the Russian great president, Vladimir Putin. Your time is fast approaching, that your emasculated nation will be forced to drop to its knees. Your monuments will crumble, and new ones will be built in their place. (“What?”)

On the tron is Mt. Rushmore with a Russian flag flying over it, with Putin, Lenin, Gorbachev, and Rusev. “USA!” chants.

Rusev (first in his native tongue, then) – Your resistance is futile! I am the super athlete Rusev! (“What?”)

Slater – Hold on! Hold on a minute! Hold on! Week after week you all come out and talk about how good Russia is. If you two like it so much, why don’t you all just go back? (pop) Because frankly, I’m sick and tired of hearing it. The WWE ‘Universe’ is sick and tired of hearing it. Tonight you’re going against the American Rock Star in USA, babay!

Slater with a big right, then a kick and blows, but then Rusev about kicks Slater’s head off. Lana laughs and yells, “Crush!” Rusev steps on Slater’s back, then locks on the accolade and Slater taps out.

Winner – Rusev (0:34)

Vickie – What’s wrong?

Trip – Can you hear Steph getting sick in there? What did you put in that coffee?

Vickie – Nothing, I put nothing in the coffee.

Trip – Something in it made her sick.

Vickie (whining) – It’s not my fault, I didn’t do anything!

Trip – Well, you go in and check on her. I’m not going in there. (to the door) Steph, you okay? Vickie’s coming in to check on you.

Vickie – Steph, are you okay Steph?

Fake projectile vomiting on Vickie. Then more projectile vomiting on Vickie as Trip hides behind the door. Even the mirror behind Vickie is splattered with spew and chunks.

Trip – Steph, we got to get you out of here. Steph, come on.

Trip reaches by Vickie for Steph’s hand and pulls her past the mess as she cries and then continues to retch off the camera.

Trip – Vickie, you’re in charge, okay? (gag) Just make sure nothing goes wrong in that Battle Royal. (gag) For God’s sake, take a shower.

Trip steps away and Vickie screams at the top of her lungs in ire and frustration. Looking down at herself and screaming more, over and over.

Reigns knocks on a door.

Vickie – What do you want?

Reigns – Vickie, we both know that you’re in hot water now, and most likely Steph is going to fire you next week. But you can still do something to stand up to The Authority. And if they do fire you, at least you know that you did something positive for the WWE ‘Universe’. Make it official and put me in the Battle Royal.

Hart – Well, I don’t know what you’re saying, but if it’s what I think you’re saying, then no, I’m not going to do that.

Rose – Don’t be a lemon.

Rose and his Exotic Express sing and dance out as Hart is upset that they’re singing in his ear.

    Hello! Welcome to Raw Results and Open Thread Discussion! Who’s excited for Raw!?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Woo! Hope this is going to be better than the debacle last night from the Designing Women!

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

        I will say there were some lovely moments, but you’re right, most of it hurt to watch!

      • David Jr.

        What did Delta Burke do now?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Mostly just still following Russo101.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Hey everyone! Who here thinks we’re gonna get a 2nd MitB match tonight?!?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope we do Mike, but with MITB being two weeks away, they’d have to do a lot of build extremely quickly.

      • David Jr.

        2 weeks away and we have 1 match and 1 partial match.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Aye… And the one match is a midcard title match!

          • Mike McCarthy

            But on the bright side, Harper & Rowan are finally getting the belts.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Just saying, it’s odd that the Tag Titles get a match announced before anything else.

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

          Welcome to TNA… Wait! Crap!

          • David Jr.

            Hey watch your language, oh wait I’m not at work.

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

            Crayola!

      • Mike McCarthy

        I think they’re gonna announce that anyone who lost a qualifying match will be put in the match for the briefcase. Allowing as much time as possible for build by eliminating qualifiers. As to when they’d make that announcement, the longer they put it off the less likely I think they do it.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          If there isn’t a case match, then I feel MITB is a waste of a PPV. That case makes the PPV so much bigger than it’s normal B level status. Maybe WWE could add it in to SummerSlam if they don’t do it here…

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

            I completely agree. Someone needs to carry a case around and make it into their Cowboy Bob Orton-esque weapon.

  • Scott

    I hope we dont get another “2010″ style Raw tonight

    • Jesse Sherwood

      What do you mean by 2010 styled?

      • Scott

        Lack of good writing, roster weakness. That sort of thing. We definitely have the roster weakness in the main event scene, so its more than time for guys like Reigns, Cesaro, Ambrose, Rollins to REALLY step it up because all are on the cusp of being super over whether it be heel or face.

  • Andrew

    heelllllllo!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hey Andrew!

      • Andrew

        whats up??

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Not much.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    By the way guys, an odd note. Normally WWE makes a big deal of big Episode numbers of Raw. Next week will be the 1100th episode of Raw, yet there has been no mention of it or hype. Strange, huh?

    • Mike McCarthy

      If they were to hype every little milestone they pass, it would make the real important ones feel less important. I think they realized that with the big difference between Raw 1000 and Raw’s 20th Anniversary.

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

        But the 900th Raw was bloody amazing! Bret Hart and Taker in the ring together. Yes, they were scheduled to face each other and it didn’t happen, but seeing those two in the ring together brought tears to my eyes.

  • Scott

    I never thought I would be saying the words “I cant wait for Lesnar to come back” but Im getting close lol.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Paul Heyman is on the Pre-Show panel this week.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      “My Client” count!

      • Mike McCarthy

        None yet.

  • Scott

    Heyman is gold on the preshow right now!

  • CJ Blaze

    Hey guys! I’m on vacation this week as well so I won’t be watching any wrestling until Saturday or Sunday. So if anything major happens during tonight’s show, message me on Facebook! :-)

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

      I’ll make sure someone does. And I can’t believe you went on vaca when everyone else did. What a wild week!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Niflheim!!! Why is everyone else getting to relax!?

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

        It’s just our week to prove ourselves, and I think we are doing a crayon good job of it!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Aye madam Kendra!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You know what… DAVID JR! KENDRA! HWOOOOAAAA!!!

      • David Jr.

        why is my name mentioned?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          You’re my Rollins! Kendra is my Ambrose!

          • David Jr.

            Oh ok, I’m 6’4 240 lbs I’m bigger than Rollins.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Crap… You might have to be Reigns then! That would make more sense, as I am crazy like Ambrose, and Kendra is cool and collected like Rollins!

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

            I have MUCH better curves than Rollins!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yes, but you also fly better than me! Plus I’m certifiably crazy, just like Dean!

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

            But I have the facial expressions and no filter.

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

            Though I do keep that side of my hair bleached – I just cover it with pink.

          • David Jr.

            Makes sense, why I am not a father, that commercial with his daughter, I so do that.

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

            I have better curves, but also a bit soft in the middle. I make crazy facial expressions, and people never know what I might say. Okay, it makes sense.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Nikki Bella vs. Alicia Fox on Superstars.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Nikki Bella with the win with a Rack Attack.

  • Andrew

    i was watching the eddie guerrerro tribute raw show the other day wow everytime i watch that i ball my eyes out i cant believe its been 9 years :(

    • Mike McCarthy

      It’s hard to think that he might still be here today. One of the best wrestlers in history IMO.

      • Andrew

        i 1000% agree no question. and i know i keep thinking that myelf

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

        I worry that he would have held on too long, but I think he would have gone into training, and his ring work mixed with his character and charisma would have brought up so many great young wrestlers. Some say it’s because he was taken so early that we care so much, but I disagree. Eddie stole our hearts with his fighting through all the bad to come out so great at the other end.

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

      I was watching WM16 and was in tears from it, so I completely understand.

      • Andrew

        he was my favorite wrestler to watch so it hurts that hes not here anymore

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I haven’t been able to watch it. Eddie passed while I was in Basic, and my DI specifically pulled me to the side to tell me because I showed up to basic in an Eddie shirt.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Jack Swagger vs. Rob Van Dam on Superstars.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The battle to see who is higher!

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

        Or who can botch more? I love RVD, but he really isn’t doing well in the ring.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Well, a little green friend isn’t helping either of them hit their moves…

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

            Nope, not at all.

  • Scott

    Loved Heyman ripping on Riley!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Dolph Ziggler vs. Seth Rollins tonight!!! Announced on Preshow!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Wait, this is like the third time in two weeks they’ve had this match…

      • Mike McCarthy

        Yupp, Main Event, SmacDown and now Raw.

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

        Do we really care? I’m thrilled!

        • Mike McCarthy

          I kinda just wish Main Event was a weekly Iron Man match between Ziggler & Rollins.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Sheamus vs. Bray Wyatt has also just been confirmed for tonight by the Preshow panel!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Now that is a match I want to see!

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

      That could be amazing!

      Mike, have you seen what I posted to the group? It is partially about you, and I want to make sure you see it.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I’ll go look right now!

  • Mike McCarthy

    LMAO Alex Riley trying to convince Heyman to pick him as the next Paul Heyman guy!!

  • Scott

    Since I saw the Eddie Guerrero chatter…… Most shocking/worst wrestling death….

    A. Chris Benoit
    B. Owen Hart
    C. Eddie Guerrero
    D. Ultimate Warrior

    • Mike McCarthy

      All close but I’d have to say Owen Hart.

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

      I cannot choose. They were all shocking for very different reasons.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Owen, hands down. He died on live TV.

    • CJ Blaze

      The only one I have lived is Warriors. So I can’t really comment on that one.

    • Andrew

      wow thats a hard one to choose

    • Scott

      I remember watching the Raw after Unforgiven in tears. I met Owen at the same show I met Taker. He was so genuinely nice. So Im gonna have to go with Owen.

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

        That’s one thing I have always heard about Owen, how genuine he was as a person.

        • Scott

          Yup I was 7 or 8 at the time. This was during the time of Diesel, Razor, Taker etc. Met him before the show cause it was at the school my mom taught. Sat me in his lap and asked me who I liked the most in WWF and I said Undertaker and his gut busted. Very fond memories

  • Jesse Sherwood

    3 Minute Warning!

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

    Off to write! Have fun guys!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The Authority opening Raw with a “Critical” announcement? Looks like they are pulling the trigger on the second MITB!

    • Andrew

      yup thats what i hope!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I love the Special Olympic logo on the Ramp!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Looks like DirecTV decided I’m not watching the beginning of Raw.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      My cable box through our local company cut out too. Came back up just in time though!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rollins still is wearing his Shield vest…

    • Andrew

      yeah i dont get that

  • David Jr.

    Interesting fact only John Cena at 11 has been WWE Champion more times than Vacant who is now a 9 time champion (10 if you count the time Antonio Inoki lost the title to vacant but WWE doesn’t count his reign)

  • James Larochelle

    Greetings Programs

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Greetings James!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cena eliminated from the battle royal? WOW! There is a plot twist!

    • James Larochelle

      Didn’t last long

      • Jesse Sherwood

        May as well be 2011,

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So Cena is facing Kane in a stretcher match again? BAKA!!!

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

    Ok I didn’t see that coming

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I didn’t either TB, but looks like we are time warped to 2011!

      • Scott

        I might have been off by a year but see what I mean? Lol

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Where’s Zack Ryder when you need him?

          • Scott

            Hahahaha i know right! Wheelchair included!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Can we get Ryder to attack Kane and throw him in, just so we can finally get something positive from that heinous debacle?!

  • Mike McCarthy

    My feed came back just in time for the stretcher match announcement!! What’s the deal with the battle royale?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ambrose , Reigns, and Cena aren’t able to compete, but everyone else has a chance to enter to get a spot in MITB.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE stacking the deck tonight!!

  • Scott

    Ok so obviously Cena will be getting in anyway.

  • K!NG

    USA USA USA USA USA USA sorry im still pumped from watching the game

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

      I never thought USA would get that goal back great ending

      • K!NG

        it was a thriller for sure

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cena has never been in a Strecher Match., but he has been in plenty of the same sort of match as they are portraying this “Stretcher match” as: Ambulance Matches.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We’re welcomed by Tom Phillips, recaps The Authority’s battle royale announcement. Bo Dallas interrupts saying things can’t get better for him, he’s in the battle royale and he’s undefeated in WWE! His record is 7-Bo! He says this is a message to all the kids watching at home, dreams do come true! All you have to do is Bolieve!!!

  • David Jr.

    Trivia question, who had the first ever stretcher match in WWE history.

  • Scott

    Ive come to the conclusion that if The Shield existed in the 80s/early 90s it would be comprised of Jake Roberts, Shawn Michaels, and Ultimate Warrior. Those are the three I think of when I see Reigns Rollins and Ambrose

    • Scott

      And Ziggler is a modern day Mr Perfect in the ring

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait… Didn’t Kane come out before the break? What the heck?!

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

      That’s what I thought too

    • Mike McCarthy

      Rewrites must have spilled over into the beginning.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Must have. That seemed WAY too odd.

    • James Larochelle

      I was thinking the same thing. I understand they wanna keep it for the main event but don’t drag out the segment then.

  • K!NG

    Im calling for a wyatt family sweep at MITB

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I am skeptical… But I am hoping!

    • Mike McCarthy

      I’ve got Sheamus winning MitB, I don’t wanna say much more as I’ve got an article coming this week about it.

      • K!NG

        I would love that. Sheamus is my favorite in wwe but i assume if he still us champion going into the event he would not be winning

  • James Larochelle

    Rollins needs new ring gear .

    • K!NG

      I was just going to say the same thing

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I like that they are slowly changing things, like no vest and the Nike shirt. I think if they drastically changed it, it wouldn’t mean as much.

      • James Larochelle

        He still looks like he’s a member of the Shield.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yes, but he has only been broke away from them for two weeks. And as the “architect” of The Shield, he can claim he came up with the look, so he should keep it.

          • David Jr.

            Maybe you’re right because Dean Ambrose isn’t dressed like a Shield member anymore.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I am getting major flashbacks of Pillman with how Ambrose is dressed tonight!

          • James Larochelle

            They can justify it but I still think you need a clear visual break from the Shield. Ambrose was wearing street clothes but Reigns is in his Shield gear. It’s just sloppy to me.

    • Scott

      I agree

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We’re sent straight to Ziggler whaling off on Rollins, irish whip but Rollins counters slamming Ziggler’s face into the ring. 2-count. Rolling starts pulling his hair, picks him up and delivers the Three Amigos (they referred to it as a triple vertical) but instead of doing a third duplex he dropped Ziggler gut first on the top rope. Stomps from Rollins to the back of Ziggler. Rollins picks Ziggler up with a fireman’s carry but Ziggler counters with a rollup. Rollins kicks out at 2. rollins with more stomps on Ziggler as we head back to USA!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Implant DDT by Ziggler!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Listen to that crowd for this match! This is a great opener!

  • K!NG

    I just had visions of billy gunn but realized it was ziggler doing that move

    • Mike McCarthy

      He does it better than Billy, I didn’t think that originally but I feel like Dolph’s perfected it.

  • Scott

    HOLY &@$% WHAT A MATCH!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rollins has a bloody mouth.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    AMBROSE IN STREET GEAR!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ambrose is a spitting image of Pillman!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Great match.

  • Mike McCarthy

    No Reigns??

  • K!NG

    lol triple h is pretty funny

  • Jesse Sherwood

    LOL at Triple H mimicking BNB!

  • Mike McCarthy

    LMAO great impression by Trip.

  • Scott

    I see Ambrose destroying Barrett here…..

  • K!NG

    Barrett has to take order from hhh look what happened last time

    • Scott

      Hahahahaha! I remember that!

    • Mike McCarthy

      Are they gonna shave Barrett’s beard again!?!?!

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Bad News Barret standing on the ramp with a mic. “Dean Ambrose, I’M AFRAID I’VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS” He tells them that The Shield is no more and he’s all on his own. He thinks it’s obvious that the Hounds of Justice were all bark and no bite. He says the best player has left the team, something Cleveland’s used to (Lebron joke)! The only thing that’s going to be rocked tonight is Dean’s brains after he hits him with a bull hammer! The ref starts the match, Dean’s fighting in his street clothes. Barrett leaves the ring but Ambrose chases him. Barrett suckers him in and hits a kick to the gut. We’re sent back to USA!

  • Theophilus McFadden Jr

    Ambrose looking sloppy in this match. I have noticed him calling several spots

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Theo! Glad to see you!

  • Theophilus McFadden Jr

    Ambrose has looked sloppy in this match. I have noticed him calling several spots

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We go straight to Barrett with Ambrose in an armlock. Ambrose fights out and kicks Barrett but Barrett comes right back with a big boot. Barrett outside and pulls Ambrose arm into the ring post. Back into the ring and picks up a 2-count. Back to the armlock. Ambrose once again fights out, Barrett catches him with a knee then throws him shoulder fir into the ring post. We head back to USA!

  • Scott

    SICK DDT!!!

  • Andrew

    this has been a pretty good match!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Great crazy catapult by Ambrose!

  • David Jr.

    where is reigns?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m betting he has a surprise lined up later tonight…

  • K!NG

    done dirt cheap

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It should so be his theme!

      • Scott

        THAT WOULD BE EPIC!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I’m digging Ambrose’s music.

    • Andrew

      me too!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Reigns is a ladies man!

    • K!NG

      he is a smooth talker like the rock lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Reigns is pulling a DX!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Please tell me we’re not getting another laxative bit.

    • K!NG

      if so then vince must be writing the script… he loves feces for some reason

      • David F

        and male genitals jokes

        • Scott

          Lets not forget….people kissing his ass……literally

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I may enjoy this one!

  • Mike McCarthy

    There was a stretcher match five years ago….

  • Scott

    Loved the nod to Eddie from Reigns

    • Jesse Sherwood

      VIVA LA RAZA!!!

  • K!NG

    Whats the best stretcher match that WWE has had? IMO it was Batista VS HBK

    • David Jr.

      Andre the Giant vs. Killer Khan.

      • K!NG

        sadly after that they didnt have one till 2003

  • David Jr.

    Rollins vs. Ziggler, than Barrett vs. Ambrose, now we are going right into Sheamus vs. Bray Wyattt, wow almost all wrestling after that open segment.

  • Scott

    Curiosity question. When Batista returns, do you think hell be able to have better luck as a face if he feuds with HHH and Orton? Figuring since he “quit” because of HHHs power/ego.

    • James Larochelle

      Couldn’t be worse.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I think if they hold off on Batista until after SummerSlam he’ll return and go after Bryan.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom Phillips welcomes us, he reminds us Bo Dallas will be in the Battle Royale. He then welcomes Jack Swagger & Zeb Colter. Jack Swagger will be in the Battle Royale tonight. Zeb points out that a Battle Royale is an entirely different match from Money in the Bank and it makes no sense that a Battle Royale is a qualifier for Money in the Bank. But Swagger is the favorite, Swagger knows how to win the ladder match. He says tonight is gonna be the night of Swag. They’re walking in tonight with nothing and walking out with everything.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Guys, we cannot have links to uploaded material such as the App Videos on here, as that violates copyright laws.

    • BlazeKing

      I have permission to upload my vids but I will not post them here at all.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sorry Blaze, but it is an issue we have ran across in the past. We can get sued for what our commenters publish, as crazy as that sounds. And we never know what might set them off.

        • BlazeKing

          Wow, what kind of copyright troll did that you guys?! That should have been taken up with the person whom uploaded the material in question. I take all responsibility for my stuff on Youtube. I even won against Viacom in my biggest victory.

          Don’t worry though, I’ll keep you safe. Now gimmie a hug!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Blaze, do you have a Twitter or FB I can PM you at?

          • BlazeKing

            Yeah, I have a two Twitter accounts. Find me at KingMagnum1785 since the other one is my personal twitter account.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Tweeted you.

  • Scott

    Omg Bray is killing it on the mic!!!

  • Paul Jameson

    It’s killing me being stuck at work and not at home watching with you guys!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Tonight is actually a pretty good night! Even Sheamus is cutting a decent promo!

      • Paul Jameson

        Of course….you’d think as manager id be able to leave on time and catch the show. Leave it to the night in held over late for it to be good :(

  • Scott

    Wyatt just made Sheamus look like a 5 year old on the mic!!!

    • K!NG

      not everyone can talk like they have been lost in the Louisiana Bayou reading children’s books for 5 years like bray does lol

      • Paul Jameson

        If you ever spent about 30 minutes down here in the bayou, you would be shocked how spot on bray has nailed that very statement you just said!

  • David Jr.

    An hour in have we even hit 200 comments yet?

    • Paul Jameson

      Trust me if I can be home in 10 minutes I’ll be picking the comments up asap

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It is a really slow night. A lot of people are on vacation.

  • ldb

    Im late tonight. had mowing duty. Whats gone down?

    • David Jr.

      wrestling.

      • ldb

        anything good. I see Sheamus and Bray.

        • David Jr.

          Ziggler vs. Rollins and Ambrose vs. Barrett were the other matches.

  • Mike McCarthy

    If they didn’t release Teddy Long they could’ve turned this into a tag team match.

  • K!NG

    I miss the days when the APA would come down to be protection

    • Scott

      Id kill to see a Ron Simmons spinebuster and a JBL Clothesline from hell!!!

  • Andrew

    looks like there may be a sheamus wyatt feud eventaully well see

    • Paul Jameson

      I’d like that. Be a very physical matchup

      • Andrew

        yupp

  • ldb

    Jesse where ever you are. Spurs win! Spurs win! Spurs Win! Down goes King James

    • Jesse Sherwood

      WOOO!!!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Sheamus and Bray are whaling away at each other outside. Both back in the ring and Wyatt whips Sheamus into the corner but Sheamus bounces back out and hits a clothesline. Sheamus goes for a whip to the corner but Bray reverses. Sheamus in the corner, Bray charges at him but Sheamus lifts his foot. Sheamus to the top top and Bray pushes him to the outside. Bray out to get Sheamus and brings him back in the ring. Bray with a chin lock on Sheamus. After about a minute of the chin lock we head back to USA.

  • Mike McCarthy

    First CM Punk chant of the night.

    • Paul Jameson

      So tired of them

      • Mike McCarthy

        I understand when they’re doing filler segments (anything including Fandango) but during such a great match I just don’t get it.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      VOLDEMORT!

    • K!NG

      i really hate the crowd trolling that goes on anymore

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Teddy Long special?

    • Paul Jameson

      HOLLA HOLLA HOLLA

  • K!NG

    this is going to awesome

  • ldb

    Usos are great and Sheamus just killed rowan with that ladder

  • Scott

    You know….WWE really missed the boat with Drew McIntyre. Like Jericho said….put a suit on him and make him serious.

    • Paul Jameson

      Agreed, completely. Drew was at one time “Hand Picked by Vince”….I miss that storyline.

  • David Jr.

    Uso Crazy is almost as bad as Jamacian me crazy.

  • K!NG

    an irish man and two Samoans walk into a bar

  • David Jr.

    I Bolieve I know who’s going to win the battle royal.

    • Paul Jameson

      I Bolieve I will see Rusev win

      • Mike McCarthy

        If they want him to get over then they need to keep him as far away from a ladder as possible.

        • Paul Jameson

          If they want him to get over, he needs to drop the Russian thing like Kofi dropped the Jamaican thing…not that Kofi is over like rover, but he DID have that nice sequence with Randy Orton……Rusev has not and will not do anything memorable with this gimmick other than Lana…..

          • ldb

            Lana….the two best parts of Rusev’s gimmick

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Sadly, Rusev can’t since he can’t speak more than 5 words of English!

          • Paul Jameson

            Then give him Heyman as a mouthpiece, I’d buy Rusev as a Heyman guy. I’m not trying to get rid of Lana by any means…..but still….this Russian thing is, lame.

          • Paul Jameson

            He just said more than 5 words btw!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I know! I’m in shock!

          • ldb

            what if they had Ziggler beat him and take Lana and dust off his I stole your girlfriend shirt?

          • Paul Jameson

            then i would dust mine off and wear it with pride

          • Jesse Sherwood

            PLEASE!!!

  • Paul Jameson

    Freedom…..in time to see Vickie get drenched. Poor Eddie has to look down on THIS?!

  • Mike McCarthy

    I BOLIEVE that Bo Dallas will win the Battle Royale!!!

  • ldb

    anybody think Rusolov is going to win the battle royal?

  • Paul Jameson

    Is Vince Russo in the building?! If he is then Kevin Hart will win the Battle Royal.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      No, Russo is shacked up with TNA’s Creative.

      • Paul Jameson

        Awwww, I wanted another David Arquette moment.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Dolph Ziggler’s having one of his epic App promotes. And just like last time he was talking very very fast. No way I could possibly keep up.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’ll hunt on Dot Com for the video. You’ve gotta see it for yourself. Ziggler will be in the Battle Royale tonight.

  • Scott

    Im almost scared to see where this coffee bit is going…..

    • Paul Jameson

      indeed, I’m hoping its poisoned!

  • K!NG

    this same trick roman reigns is the same one that they used in wedding crashers…. putting eye drops in someones drink lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Steph is feeling a bit green… And maybe brown!

    • Paul Jameson

      gotta love that starbucks!

  • ldb

    Steph is a financial wizard. She dumped alot of her stock before it went on the downhill slide.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Actually, she dumped it when it was at an average of $10.50 a share. So she didn’t do as well as you would think.

      • ldb

        scratch that thought then.

  • Paul Jameson

    I wish Putin would write the WWE and say, please stop using the photo that makes me look like Jar Jar Binks.

  • ldb

    The one man band is back!

  • Paul Jameson

    YAY for the 1 man band……well technically 1 and 1/2 man band if they still have Hornswaggle.

  • Heath

    Really hope Rollins or Lesnar wins the BR. Rusev and Reigns bore me.

  • ldb

    the talk about chewing gum and walking for Rusev its walking and waving a flag

  • Scott

    Rusev looks goofier than hell waving that flag

  • K!NG

    Rusev hit Rusev break

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Slater’s gonna Slate!

    • Paul Jameson

      Think they kept Slater just cause they just praised him for being a father?! Or is he just the best squash man they have?!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yes.

      • ldb

        I like Slater he’s a good worker and always there.

        • Paul Jameson

          True, I never said there was anything wrong with him. I just don’t see him having much in the future other than being squishy.

          • BlazeKing

            WWE has something against former tag team champs for some unknown reason.

    • K!NG

      He was prlly running around the locker room like rub baker in major league saying hey guys i made the rooster

  • K!NG

    where is Evelyn Salt when u need her

    • David Jr.

      She was a bad goose egg, oh wait that was Veruca.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I love this blue suit on Lana! It really accentuates her curves.

  • ldb

    This is one guy that I think people would actually cheer for Ryback to beat.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ryback vs. Rusev… The battle of the squash match buildups.

    • Avalanchian

      Yes Ryback would get a ton of cheers

  • Scott

    Is that Tazz on the right of that Rushmore? Hahahaha

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I thought Spike Dudley!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    HOLY FECAL MATTER!!! RUSEV now knows 10 words of English!

  • ldb

    Preach Slater! Preach

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Slater is getting a PROMO!!! And he is doing a worked shoot!

  • K!NG

    did not know slater was a golden gloves champ.

    • BlazeKing

      WWE had two of them in recent years and wasted them both.

      • K!NG

        who was the other ?

  • Paul Jameson

    Rusev…..WWE’s answer to what E Honda and Zangief would look like in real life if combined.

  • Mike McCarthy

    For a second there I thought they were actually gonna do something with Slater….

    • Paul Jameson

      they did….they squashed him.

    • Avalanchian

      We’re left with disappointment

  • Dj Marvelouz

    for a second there i thought heath slater was gonna get a push…. but like i said, that thought only lasted about a second

  • Scott

    What do you guys think? Rusev vs Henry?

  • Paul Jameson

    that wasn’t even necessary……….that segment gets an F-

  • K!NG

    yup confirmed vince has written the script

  • Jesse Sherwood

    LOLL!!!!! No way that came from a human body, but that was funny!!!

    • David Jr.

      Maybe Stephanie McMahon was possessed by a demon.

  • BlazeKing

    Oh NOOOOO!!!! Talk about projectile vomiting and crying, hahaha!!!!

  • Andrew

    wow lolllllllllllllllll

  • Mike McCarthy

    Vince is a genius!!! Send the viewers to get snacks during the Rusev segment. Then ruin their appetite!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’ll keep them from asking for Ice Cream Bars!

    • Paul Jameson

      I’m not gonna lie, I chuckled….but I also put down my burger…..and now I can’t even look at it.

  • Scott

    Ummmmmm wow…….Ummmmmmm fail……..Ummmmmmmm noooooo

  • Dj Marvelouz

    if only it was kevin hart that got vomited on!! lol now that woulda been funny

  • Paul Jameson

    8 years ago…Vinnie Mac, Shane and the Spirit squad get feces dropped on them…….this year…..Steph needs an exorcist on Vickie…….i guess its an even trade.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom Phillips welcomes Paige. He acts what Paige thinks about the talent in the division. She puts over Naomi and Natalya. She says she’s excited to be a part of the division. Cameron interrupts asking why she wasn’t on the list. Paige says she meant no offense, but Cameron says she understand. She’s never really done anything to be considered a Divas Champion…but all that changes tonight! She B!**h slaps Paige and walks off. The camera zooms in on Paige and simply says “Alright..”

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Reigns is IN!!!

  • Andrew

    yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Paul Jameson

    Ok i don’t know what they used as the projectile…..but it looked think and smelly….

  • David F

    should brought in Zeb to talk trash to Lana

    • Paul Jameson

      seriously….can anyone tell us why Zeb isn’t working on Rusev?!

      • Andrew

        yes i would love to see that and i would love to see zeb as a face !!

        • Paul Jameson

          with more words than just….yes?!

          • David F

            I would love to hear Zeb American shoot on Russia it would be classic

          • ldb

            A to the Men on that one. Zeb is gold on the mic to me. I d love to listen to all the promos they could come up with.

          • Andrew

            fixed it!

  • Paul Jameson

    Finally…..Renee is taller than someone!!!!

  • BlazeKing

    Hugh Jackman an Kevin Hart are the only guest hosts who got pops worth a damn.

  • Dustyn

    Looking like Willy Wonka there!

    • David Jr.

      There’s only one Willy Wonka that matters and I don’t remember Gene Wilder ever looking like that.

      • Paul Jameson

        amen and right on….

        • David Jr.

          I would love if after a title match if the winner would say to the loser, you get… NOTHING!!! You lose! GOOD DAY, SIR!

          • Paul Jameson

            A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest man….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Adam Rose with white Steampunk goggles!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Remember the good ol’ days when guest stars actually got involved with Raw? Seth Green, Shaq, Jeremy Piven. That’s just a couple examples from a very long list.

    • Paul Jameson

      Hugh Jackman was the last right?

      • Mike McCarthy

        Kinda, he did get involved but there were pointless segments. The three names I put all got involved in the main event.

        • Paul Jameson

          true, but still Jackman was the last one to actually be involved in a match at all…the rest just came out and talked

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Kevin Hart looks less than enthused to be in the Adam Rose segment!

    • Paul Jameson

      so you’re saying he’s a lemon….

  • BlazeKing

    Fandango just said Kevin Hart came from the legendary Hart Foundation, lol.

    • Paul Jameson

      tell me he didn’t just say that…….

      • BlazeKing

        He really did lmao

  • Mr.V

    Ugh this is TERRIBLE!!!!! I should have known it was gonna suck based on the “all hands on the stage” segment that ruins the roster every freekin time. Rollins on the stage?? Cena next to the Wyatts? Russiv on the stage with everyone else?? GAH They are blowing the Shield split that should be everything right now. And now a projectile vomiting gag??? This show if awful!! It’s nice to see a little Dean unleashed finally but the rest …………..

    • Scott

      Im with ya

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, up until Rusev, I have thought this is one of the better Raws we have had in months!

      • Mr.V

        You got rose colored glass my friend I envy you. I think I’m just sore about no 3 way feud for the US title and the greatness that could have been. I really think the shield split should have meant a LOT more

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I can agree there, but I think that we will see this as the point whether Reigns will sink or swim, and I can’t wait to see Rollins and Ambrose face off!

          • Mr.V

            Yeahhhhhhhhhh ……. you know, I can honestly say I’ll be happy with a sink OR a swim. Which in itself is pretty fun because it would be cool for the smark community to turn on Reins as wwE’s chosen one. He could also be the next Rock. (though I highly doubt it ) But they should have three way’d it for a while. Made that title super important and passed it around but only they may hold it and they attack anoyne that messes with ther brothers. Friendly competition or bitter rivals … they had all the wrestling you needed right there.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom Phillips welcomes us and recaps the last segment. He’s interrupted by Fandango & Layla. Fandango says Kevin Hart was trained in the Hart Dungeon by The Hart Family in Canada. Tom corrects him. Fandango insists he correct, he watched him growing up. They then move on to Summer Rae. Summer has never done anything in WWE, she’s never beaten anyone, she’s never won a title. Layla and Fandango will face Summer and Adam Rose tonight. Layla storms off. Fandango sings “Every rose has it’s thorn” and walks away.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I have no idea why but Fandango was acting very very strange.

  • ldb

    WWE’s own Rock Star Spud

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Kevin Hart? Spud is still better dressed, and has a better accent!

      • ldb

        Yeah I just meant tiny many being out there.I bet Cole does enjoy being not the smallest.

  • Paul Jameson

    Kevin Hart even makes Cole look like a man

  • Dustyn

    Thats sure a bad-bass shirt!

  • BlazeKing

    Trivia: The theme Kevin Hart came out to is the instrumental of the Uso’s first theme when they were with Tamina.

  • Paul Jameson

    Kevin Hart is about to expose all 3 people at that table…..its about to get interesting and business is about to pick up…

  • BlazeKing

    Leave it to Kevin Hart to accurately state where Fandango’s gimmick came from (mocking Jericho from Dancing with the Stars).

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “Is this Dancing with the Stars or Monday Night Raw?!” Perfect!

  • Mike McCarthy

    You can tell Kevin is loving this.

    • BlazeKing

      He’s a big wrestling fan.

      • Paul Jameson

        And he may actually win the Rumble lol

        • BlazeKing

          lol

      • Mike McCarthy

        Didn’t realize.

  • Paul Jameson

    Summer Rose?! lol

  • Scott

    Awww you dont do that to nobody! Hahahahahaha!!! I LOVE IT!!!

  • Andrew

    i guess summer rae is a face then lol

    • Mike McCarthy

      She has been ever since she returned from shooting The Marine 4.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    It’s a battle of the singalong gimmicks!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      Rose won both!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Adam Rose is over in Cleveland!!!!

  • Scott

    KEVIN HART IS HILARIOUS ON COMMENTARY!!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    So the former football player gets outrun by the former Miami Heat dancer…….that doesn’t add up.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The female sailor just about had a wardrobe malfunction!

    • Paul Jameson

      Ahoy…hoy….

  • Mike McCarthy

    The guy in the hot dog suit only knows half the song…

  • Paul Jameson

    I want Hart back on Commentary!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I love this acoustic version of Batista’s song! I must own it!!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      and that’s the ONLY thing of the DVD worth owning….

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I want WWE to release it now. I’ll buy it day 1. I’m a bit of an odd duck on music, as I love rock, but prefer acoustic and stripped down songs more than anything else. Apocolyptica currently holds my heart!

  • David Jr.

    I’ll bet Kendra will be the first to buy the Batista dvd.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      LOL! I might just buy it for that acoustic version of his theme if they don’t release it any other way.

      • David Jr.

        You can tell her I said that.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          *Hugs* From Kendra

          • David Jr.

            Cool.

  • ldb

    The blue ray version should be a special Bluetista version

  • K!NG

    So what are the betting odds Sandow is going to show up tonight in some stupid out fit ?

    • Paul Jameson

      2 to 1?!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      7/5 odds.

      • Paul Jameson

        8/7

        • Jesse Sherwood

          DONE!

      • David Jr.

        Does Lebron James jersey count?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          YEP!

    • K!NG

      I love the fact he has a shooting sleeve on

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Looks like we’re just getting entrances for the Battle Royale. Bad News Barrett out first, no mic, no title. Curtis Axel comes out. Then Fandango, holding his head. Los Matadores. Rusev. Sin Cara. Big E. Damien Sandow dressed as Lebron James!! Jack Swagger. Rob Van Dam. Ryback. Titus O’Neil. Bo Dallas. Dolph Ziggler. They literally cut to the next music the second Justin Roberts finished saying their name. Not sure what the point was.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Other than seeing Sandow dressed as Lebron, this entire segment was pointless.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Reigns gets to keep a remixed Shield theme!

    • BlazeKing

      It sounds like Adam Massacre’s version of Shield’s theme

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’ll have to look it up later. But I like it.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Six Man Tag Team Match on Main Event!!! Looks like Teddy Long is still lurking in the shadows!!

    • Paul Jameson

      HOLLA IF YA HEAR ME

      • David Jr.

        Since Teddy Long is gone, Scott Steiner is making tag team matches now?

        • Paul Jameson

          its funny they both used that….only Teddy added the Playa while Scott used the Big Bad Booty Daddy….

  • Paul Jameson

    And the HEAt go down again!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      #WinSpursWin

    • David Jr.

      They got rid him almost as fast as the Spurs did.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Lebron left Cleveland again!

    • BlazeKing

      Zing!

  • Paul Jameson

    OLE

  • Mike McCarthy

    If WWE wants to pull the plug on Bo Dallas all they have to do is have him eliminate Bad News Barrett.

  • Paul Jameson

    Well another Rumble…another chance for kofi spot

  • K!NG

    sin cara looked very sluggish

  • Mike McCarthy

    They’re really booking this like Reigns is gonna win but I’m holding out hope they put over Ziggler.

  • Paul Jameson

    So I hate to admit this…though WWE never will…but when Rusev is eliminated…he’s no longer undefeated.

    • BlazeKing

      They only look at pinfalls when it comes to that.

      • Paul Jameson

        true…but you see what I’m getting at….

        • BlazeKing

          You know it bro!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I saw Rusev’s trunks and wondered if Santino ate a Super Mushroom…

  • K!NG

    I calling for reigns and rusev as the final two

  • Mike McCarthy

    Since I really can’t tell you what every person is doing in the match, I’ll just inform you if somebody is eliminated on the App.

    • Paul Jameson

      come on Cole…..i need play by play!!!

  • Avalanchian

    Kofi always putting on a show in these

    • Paul Jameson

      i wish he’d get to win one of these sometime….

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Michael Cole announced that Stephanie McMahon has left the building.

    • Paul Jameson

      *in elvis voice* “thank you….thank you very much”

    • Jesse Sherwood

      After that, she should be admitted to the nearest ICU!

      • Paul Jameson

        for real….that was half her body weight at least

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Ryback eliminated Kofi Kingston.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    RVD looks lost.

    • K!NG

      he looks stoned

      • Paul Jameson

        oh well…then that’s not so bad….at least he’s medicated

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Him and Swagger probably hit the green before the match.

  • ldb

    Poor RVD is just wondering around?

  • Mike McCarthy

    …….wait…………what?

  • Andrew

    ziggler eliminated by ryback? barf smh

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’d rather watch Vickie get puked on than watch Rybaxel eliminate Ziggler.

    • Paul Jameson

      my current cold burger that hasn’t been touched since would disagree….

  • ldb

    Rybaxel actually looking pretty strong.

  • Paul Jameson

    is it sad that I want Rusev vs Ryback?!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Let’s go Axel?! Are we in Bizzaro World?!

    • K!NG

      that is toronto

  • Andrew

    ziggler deserves so much better then this crap smh

  • Mike McCarthy

    I know I’m in the minority, but I think Rusev is very talented in the ring. I just can’t stand the way they’re booking him.

    • Paul Jameson

      I’m with you in talent…I hate the gimmick

    • BlazeKing

      I can’t stand the stale gimmick…

  • K!NG

    ouch.. rusev is looking pretty impressive

  • Jesse Sherwood

    One of these men is not like the other ones…

    • Paul Jameson

      you don’t have to agree….all you have to do is BOLIEVE!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    THEY ACKNOWLEDGED BARRETT AND BO HAVE HISTORY!

    • Paul Jameson

      wait…we AREN”T SUPPOSED TO REMEMBER THIS!!!!! *MIND BLOWN*

  • K!NG

    hopefully bo pulls a king and hids under the ring

  • Paul Jameson

    we found our ROCKY!!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      In more ways than one!

      • David Jr.

        Yeah, it is.

  • K!NG

    will the USA get win number 2 today ?!!?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rusev and Reigns… This could be a ton of fun!

    • Paul Jameson

      ha…tons…..I see what you did there

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Reigns is IN!!!

  • Andrew

    reigns won!!

  • Paul Jameson

    He said it before….he’ll say it again…You Don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you Don’t piss in the wind…..and now you Don’t doubt Roman Reigns.

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

    reigns wins! reigns wins! reigns wins!

  • K!NG

    i have a feeling vicky is going to be number 12

    • Avalanchian

      Well she was gonna retire sometime soon

  • Paul Jameson

    I want a 15 minute Reigns v Rusev match now…..

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think we’re witnessing history in the career of Roman Reigns. He’s a guy they always questioned how he would fair as a singles competitor after The Shield disbanded. This is his first night solo and he’s over like rover.

    • Paul Jameson

      I’m not gonna say like Rover…..but he’s getting over for sure. People wanted Rusev to get hurt……so i would be cheering anyone against him.

      • Mike McCarthy

        ……just turn the volume up on your tv…

        • Paul Jameson

          well we’d hear it a whole lot better if they’d hold off on turning cole up on his throw away to commercials…but I heard the crowd just fine. Its just one night isn’t over like rover.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ok… That was stupid.

    • Paul Jameson

      it was Cena……come on…..you know it was gonna be cheesy.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yes, but the implied meaning and what actually happened was quite poor form.

        • Paul Jameson

          2 words…..fruity…..pebbles.

  • K!NG

    where is machine gun kelly when cena needs him

  • Rayner Chee-bai

    Ambrose vs Wyatt on last week’s SmackDown! screams “Future Main Feud” on me. “Lunatic Fringe vs False Prophet”. Love the chemistry between them.

  • Mr.V

    Reins winning was obvious but they should have built his growing hunger for the title. I don’t know if they actually did I don’t watch all wwE programming … but this should have been a growing taste for gold over the past few weeks. Just jumping at it seems kinda forced

  • ldb

    Its crazy how Ambrose to me is Brian Pillman mixed with a little roddy & Scott hall.

    • Paul Jameson

      but that could lead to a great on screen career….but a horrible end :{

      • ldb

        I hope not the horrible end. I can really get behind Ambrose that promo last week was great and his match on smackdown

        • Paul Jameson

          oh by far I agree, I’m hoping he can keep it collected in his personal life and be able to perform like that. Roddy ain’t right in the head and we lost pillman when there was so much more he could bring. All we can do is hope there is a nice balance in there.

  • Andrew

    does anyone know who trained roman reigns? im not sure who

    • David Jr.

      I Think Afa and Sika.

      • Andrew

        one of them is his dad right?

        • David Jr.

          Yeah Sika is Roman Reigns dad.

      • Scott

        Didnt they train The Rock too?

        • David Jr.

          Rocky Johnson trained the Rock

          • Paul Jameson

            chip off the ole rock….

      • Jesse Sherwood

        You are correct sir.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Byron Saxton welcomes us for his first time tonight. Xavier Woods is welcomed, he says again he gets an interview but he’s asked about somebody else. He doesn’t wanna know anything about him just like everybody else. But Xavier asks if Byron wants to know why he should care. Because he’s going to get his PHD. He’s going to be a licensed Child’s Psychologist. He’s already winning in life. He walks out and Byron announces that tonight the Divas Champion Paige will take on Cameron.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Way to go Xavier!

      • Paul Jameson

        i like the backbone from Xavier, but the app stuff has felt weird since Ziggler’s promo….

  • K!NG

    these are 2 divas who need new gimmicks

    • Paul Jameson

      someone should call their momma…..

  • Scott

    I miss Sweet T

    • Paul Jameson

      i love me some Sweet T……..with lemon

      • David Jr.

        I prefer it with Rosebud.

        • Paul Jameson

          that doesn’t seem to stir in so well….the rabbit foot gets in the way…

    • ldb

      why couldn’t he just be Albert? I think he might of had a chance. Tensai was terrible. reminded me of the dumb japanese gimmick they tried to give Dr. Death.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I still question how Cameron has a job after last Thursday’s cuts, but then I remember she is the drama queen of TD.

    • Paul Jameson

      and she should so be heel….

      • Jesse Sherwood

        She needs another 2 years in NXT!

        • Paul Jameson

          well since that won’t happen…at least break up naomi and cameron and make cameron heel like she needs to be…

      • Mike McCarthy

        She kind of is, I mean they haven’t turned the page with her gimmick but in her app promos she’s normally booked like a heel.

        • Paul Jameson

          yeah i mean its implied…but lets take it out of the closet

  • Scott

    Isnt Goldie supposed to tag with someone tonight?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep. That will surely be after this.

    • Paul Jameson

      yes….Cody rhodes in goldie make up I hope…

  • BlazeKing

    Looks like a split for the Funkadactyls is in the works. Hopefully, Naomi can get the title later and have a legit feud or something.

  • K!NG

    im really hoping WWE turns cody heel

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think we’re about to see the debut of Cody in face paint unfortunately..

    • David Jr.

      I still hope it’s Midnight Rider Jr.

  • Paul Jameson

    Silver Surfer please say yes!!

  • ldb

    its Max moon

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Super… Galactic? Max Moon?

  • K!NG

    the shockmaster ?

    • Paul Jameson

      only if introduced to perfection by Sting

      • BlazeKing

        They just played that clip on the App!

        • Mike McCarthy

          His helmet fell off

        • Paul Jameson

          haha yeah I know….just makes me smile everytime

          • ldb

            Is anything better than Sid’s reaction?

          • Paul Jameson

            i dunno, if you rewatch that and look at Sting’s eyes….you can see him thinking “WTH have I gotten myself into now”

          • K!NG

            Sid always had the best reactions

    • ldb

      Uncle Fred would be freaking awesome.

      • Scott

        UNCLE FRED!!! Hahahaha

    • David Jr.

      Shockmaster is actually Cody Rhodes’ uncle.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    SILVERDUST!

  • Mike McCarthy

    They’re just showing a repeat of an old Youtube episode of WWE Top 10.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They ran out of App content!

    • Paul Jameson

      Renee and Byron were both in the bathroom….

  • James Larochelle

    Super Ninja 1

  • Scott

    I have a feeling the next segment is going to be really bad….unless they turn Cody heel

  • ldb

    about to turn in but I gotta see this tag match.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’m really hoping for this match to pleasantly surprise us.

    • Paul Jameson

      i really want something horribly wrong to happen ala shockmaster actually…. I don’t know why, I just like it when snafus happen.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Or maybe The Dashing Gentleman!

  • Mike McCarthy

    PLEASE BE DASHING CODY RHODES

  • Paul Jameson

    stardust!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Stardust!

  • ldb

    Now I can go to bed happy Its Star Dust. Yeah Cody.

  • Paul Jameson

    omg I used to play the purple version of this guy on the NES!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cody has snapped!!!

  • BlazeKing

    LMAO Stardust!!!!

  • Scott

    …………………..

  • James Larochelle

    Wow…

  • Dustyn

    I love it!

  • Paul Jameson

    one things’ for sure….the Rhodes brother’s makeup bill just tripled

  • Andrew

    wow

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I want the Stardust theme! It’s a piano version of Goldy’s theme!

  • K!NG

    the way cody is acting i think he is on some sort of dust

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

    Ok there’s something wrong with me…I like it

  • Mike McCarthy

    This is either gonna be awful or incredible.

  • Paul Jameson

    botch

  • Taylor

    RIP CODY RHODES CAREER

    • Paul Jameson

      nah I disagree, this could be a good break for a little while. He has a bright future still.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      This is going to lead to the split, and a full blown Cody heel turn. they hinted heavily at it after the match. I predict SummerSlam, at the latest.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Guys this is amazing, the first time for a very long time someone actually changes their move set along with their gimmick.

    • Paul Jameson

      yeah….but………something felt off during those last 3 moves. I like the change in general.

      • Mike McCarthy

        But it’s different with a move set, it can change over time. Gimmicks are permanent.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That is my biggest gripe on Willow.

      • Paul Jameson

        out of the way, peck…..

  • ldb

    Some tell Jeff Hardy to study this for willow

  • Dustyn

    I hope this stays a thing, lol!

  • K!NG

    that is Masato Tanaka’s finisher. Which is actually called the Diamond dust

  • BlazeKing

    I love how Cody has dots on his “StarDust” outfit to show respect to his dad. A big guy in polka dots is pretty “mind****ish” as well!!!

  • David Jr.

    Thankfully this is Cleveland and not Baltimore, other wise the crowd would be be chanting Cody Rhodes at Stardust.

  • Avalanchian

    I’m on the Stardust badwagon

  • Mike McCarthy

    Goldust barely even in the match but I have a feeling his face paint still probably wore off….

    • Paul Jameson

      haha he could only afford half a coat this time….Cody took the rest.

  • ldb

    Good night to all. Remember if you listen to all Popovich’s interviews, and work as a team and Tim Duncan will visit you in your sleep and leave a Title ring under your pillow.

    • Paul Jameson

      and Slash will show up to your birthday party…..have a good night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Coach Pop… Greatest basketball mind in the NBA! Night!

  • Paul Jameson

    Does this mean we can see Dusty show up as AngelDust before this ends?!?!?!?!

    • K!NG

      lol

    • Scott

      HAHAHAHAHA! The son of a plumber!

    • BlazeKing

      You samamma gaaan that was funny!!!

      • Paul Jameson

        not nearly as the Santino reply…kudos!

  • James Larochelle

    I’m struck by the memory of Cody’s promo when he was “fired” about what they did to his brother and father…

    • Mike McCarthy

      Immediately what I thought of.

  • Paul Jameson

    NO Not ADR…..we don’t need Reigns to have a concussion before the PPV!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      RIP Roman Reigns’ career.

      • Paul Jameson

        I’m gonna chant “Reigns gonna kill you” hoping he’ll do it……is that wrong?!

    • K!NG

      who all has Del Rio concussed ?

      • Mike McCarthy

        Ziggler & Christian come to mind.

        • K!NG

          Swagger and Ryaback gave ziggy a conussion

        • James Larochelle

          Wasn’t it Swagger thay concussed Ziggler?

          • K!NG

            yes it was

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Swagger did, then Ryback followed. ADR concussed Christian shortly after he returned from one.

          • K!NG

            so the only one is christian

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye. I forgot Ryback was the cause of Ziggler’s second one. However, ADR’s kicks have caused other less serious injuries such as lost teeth and bloody mouths.

          • Paul Jameson

            granted Captain Charisma isn’t the man he used to be….but the statement is still valid…ADR and Swaggs are the Concussions bros in the wwe….with Ryback a distant relative.

          • K!NG

            Must be Jay uso is related as well for concussing Daniel bryan and sin cara for concussing del rio

          • Paul Jameson

            since sin cara concussed a previous concussor….it negates the care. lol j/k But all in all, its all in good joking fun, but concussions arent a laughing matter…which is why we should all not try this at home…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye… Trust me on that. Concussions can ruin lives.

          • K!NG

            lol my theory is when someone is kicking u in the face there is alot of room for error

      • Paul Jameson

        I only keep using it cause of Ziggler…it basically killed his push and he hasn’t been the same since.

        • Mike McCarthy

          I feel like the one he got from Swagger really killed it.

          • Paul Jameson

            oh believe me…Swaggs gets alot of heat from me for it too…I call them the Concussion Bros….

        • K!NG

          swagger gave him the concussion….

  • James Larochelle

    Gonna be a short stretcher match…

    • Paul Jameson

      ha, cause compared to Kane Cena is short…I like it lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      15 minutes at least. I’m betting that we get more than a 5 minute overrun.

      • James Larochelle

        To beat a guy to the point he needs a stretcher still seems short.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Well, Foley would only need 5…

          • Paul Jameson

            or 21 chair shots…

          • James Larochelle

            Foley is good. Shameless plug for his book.

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

    How does this one end, with the wyatt family getting involved?

  • David Jr.

    Wait, a minute, Kane is suppose to be a demon. The way Steph vomited was like she was possesed by one. Maybe Kane is finally getting back at Triple H for Katie Vick.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      BURN!!!

    • James Larochelle

      That would really be a slow burn

    • Paul Jameson

      just can’t go a raw without a Katie Vick comment……this is good, I approve.

  • Dj Marvelouz

    if wwe wanna get the app over, they should have a match end during the commercial break, and then tell ppl that if they dont have the app, then u missed the ending to the match

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That would cause fans to tune out of the show worse, as they wouldn’t want to feel forced to watch the app to see a match end. It would make some of them feel cheated, especially in areas like where I live, where broadband internet and the like aren’t as prevalent.

  • K!NG

    lets not forget cena and kanes classic ambulance match in 2012

  • Paul Jameson

    Cole is amazed that gravity brought Kane down onto the steps…….what a guy

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That was an awful DDT on the steps.

    • Paul Jameson

      thank you for beating me to that…..i agree completely.

  • Dj Marvelouz

    the demon kane making sure cena dont get hurt by taking the monitors out

    • Paul Jameson

      that…or they are really running low on back up monitors from the 90s.

      • Mike McCarthy

        demons don’t normally tend to care about whether there are backup monitors or not.

      • Dj Marvelouz

        lmao ive been wondering why the hell they havent upgraded those monitors… wouldnt be surprised if it displays in black and white

  • savokes

    ….I think Kane just went through the table…maybe I’ll ask to repeat it again to make sure…hah

    • Paul Jameson

      cole has been extra coley tonight…almost vintage if you will…

      • savokes
  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rollins and Orton!

    • Paul Jameson

      They need a name……edge and orton were rated rko………what can those two be….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Ambrose!

  • K!NG

    I wonder if the wyatts will interfere

  • James Larochelle

    So Ambrosr is the only one mad at Rollins.

    • Paul Jameson

      I ain’t mad…but i don’t like him lol j/k

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ambrose wants to take revenge first. When he falls, Reigns will take it.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Rollins will cost Reigns the ladder match.

        • Mr.V

          Ya but….. Then what… THATS the reason Reins is after him?

      • James Larochelle

        I guess…

      • Mr.V

        Yeah right dood. Reigns was all about brotherhood. He brought that aspect to the relationship. The fact that he’s forgotten and is now going for the title is horrible … HORRIBLE booking.

        • Paul Jameson

          To be fair, Reigns can’t be brOught up at the same Level as roLlins and ambrose, they each need their own story at this point.

          • Mr.V

            Fair enough … But they could have addressed it where Roman kind of is happy he turned because he is thinking a lot about that gold … Where Ambrose won’t get over it ….. And Roman knows this …. So he knows Rollins is in for hell and can go git him some

          • Paul Jameson

            i look at it this way….they needed some more fan power entrants in the ladder match for the title…..and rollins will most likely screw reigns out of the chance anyway, so we’ll all come back full circle and beat the mess outta each other by summerslam. We coulda lived without cena in the ladder match, but reigns in there is nice.

          • Mr.V

            That could also lead to Ambrose going crazy because Reins is so cool with it and just wants to you know, live up to the family expectation. Sure he’d still have it in for Rollins, but you’d understand why it’s not so important. Kind of a … We’ll I was getting sick I f that guy anyway

        • Jesse Sherwood

          DOOD! *Chucks a prinny* I won’t deny it is bad booking, but I don’t see this sticking right now. Reigns isn’t done with Rollins and Evolution, as the vomit coffee showed.

    • Dj Marvelouz

      i know right! roman reigns hasnt done nothing to rollins… kinda like as if nothing happened between then

      • Paul Jameson

        wouldn’t it be boring if ambrose and reigns together keep destroying rollins week in and week out…I wouldn’t mind only one focusing on him at a time. and ambrose/reigns v orton/rollins can only go so far.

  • Paul Jameson

    they are big on that throw the stairs out of the ring to the floor spot………not impressed with any of them…

  • Paul Jameson

    ok that “AA” on the stretcher looked comfy….anyone agree?!

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

    lame ending

  • K!NG

    normal firemans carry to the stretcher EMS style

    • Paul Jameson

      he just tucked kane in….all he needed was his blankey……couldn’t have placed a baby gentler on that thing….

  • K!NG

    u all enjoy christley knows best now lol

    • Paul Jameson

      does he though…that’s the question….i mean remember…Hogan at one time knew best…….

      • K!NG

        yeah and look where that got him…. lol

        • Paul Jameson

          look up Chrisley 10 years after his show….wonder if he’ll be just as bad off lol

          • K!NG

            Well hopefully christleys son turns out better then nick

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He already is. He is going through a huge bankruptcy case.

          • Paul Jameson

            so then all he needs to match is a divorce…….and a sex tape?!

          • K!NG

            and Bubba Ray to marry his daughter

  • Scott

    That ending sucked

  • Scott

    Would love to see the loose cannon Ambrose continue to defy the boss in epic ways similar to Stone Cold. He has a crazy enough character to pull it off

  • James Larochelle

    Okay I’m out. G’nite Programs.

    • Paul Jameson

      night

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night James!

  • Paul Jameson

    well we got it up to 650….not bad with so many people MIA this evening. Night all….and if I were you….I’d double check your next coffee order…….

  • King James

    So there was no explanation to why Reigns and Ambrose broke up? WWE is out of their minds tonight. First that, then the Stardust bullsh!t. I did like how Reigns looked on his own, superstar written all over him. This Rollins vs Ambrose rivalry can become Triple H vs Shawn Michaels-esque. They have the in ring chemistry.

  • Paul Jameson

    to embrace the hate

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Crap, 2012. Why am I a year off tonight?!

  • Paul Jameson

    its because you didn’t embrace the hate……did we forget that whole rise above hate campaign from the cenation?!
