Stills from Cena vs Orton at Royal Rumble last night when The Wyatt Family got involved.

In Ring Segment

The Authority to the ring, both in power suits, but Steph in a light gray cami under her jacket, showing more cleavage than she normal does. Trip hugs Steph from behind on the stage, and she cuddles in laughing.

They show stills of Brock destroying Big Show with a chair.

Steph – Welcome to Monday Night RAW. (mixed) I’m just as excited as you are, in less than 24 hours we witness the most satisfying…

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Steph – Yes, it was one of the most satisfying Royal Rumbles in history. (heat)

Trip (in a whiny voice, bottom lip pooching out) – Oh, did someone not get what they wanted? Oh, that’s too bad. (Back to egotistical Trip voice.) It was an incredible night in which Orton defended his WWE WHC by defeating Cena. It was a night where Brock destroyed Big Show. (heat) A night where our good friend returned after four years to defeat 29 other Superstars, and win the Royal Rumble, and Dave Batista secured his spot in the main event at WrestleMania. (heat)

Steph – There’s one more stop on the way to WrestleMania, and that’s the Elimination Chamber. Trip and I are proud to announce that Orton will defend the WWE WHC inside the Elimination Chamber itself.

Bryan comes out with a huge smile to even bigger “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” from the fans. “Daniel Bryan!” chants. More “YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Bryan – Guys, guys, guys,guys, stop the ‘Yessing’, they don’t like it! Guys, guys, you guys, if you could stop chanting “Daniel Bryan” I don’t think they like it. We don’t want to make The Authority mad. (Mixed ‘Daniel Bryan’s and “YES!”, as JBL says, they just can’t seem to get it together. Bryan is all smiles.)

Steph – I was gonna say that these people would never fall for your cheap parlor tricks, but I guess I was wrong. (heat)

Bryan – Listen, last night I had one of the toughest matches of my career. Win, lose, or draw, when you talk about the greatest moments of the Royal Rumble, a lot of people are talking about my match!

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Trip – I’ll be the first to give all the credit in the world. It was a good little effort man. (heat)

Steph – It was, it was an incredible match, it was.

Bryan – Thank you. And when people talk about the disappointments in the Royal Rumble, I have to think they’re talking about my not being in the Royal Rumble Match. (pop) I know I had a match before and asked to be in the Royal Rumble. Listen to the people, they wanted me to be in the Royal Rumble. There is a movement going on, a YesMovement, but every time I came and knocked on your door and asked to be in the Royal Rumble, you said no.

Steph – This might be hard to understand, but as management, we have to take care of the health and well being of all our Superstars. Quite frankly Daniel, after everything you’ve been through the past couple weeks, we couldn’t ask you to compete in two matches in the same night and put you in that kind of jeopardy.

“You suck!” chants for Steph.

Bryan – They didn’t want to put me in jeopardy? How many times have you made me face all three members of The Shield? How many times have you made me face all three member of The Wyatt Family? How many times have I come out on RAW and wrestled more than once? Countless times!

Trip – That’s fair, and why we didn’t want to make you do it again and make you work twice last night. It’s as simple as that. (HEAT)

Steph – And you have been through a lot.

Bryan – You don’t care about my health, and you don’t care what’s best for business, you care about what’s worst for Daniel Bryan.

Steph – That is a myopic point of view. Clearly the only person you think about is yourself. But we have a lot of other people to think about. Do you really think everyone in the arena came here to see you?

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!” Steph rolls her eyes.

Bryan – Let me answer your question with another question. Did you people come here to see Randy Orton?

“NO!” Heat. “NO!” Heat.

Bryan – Did you come here to see Triple H?

“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”

Bryan – People can come and watch who they want. That’s the great thing about the WWE, they get to pick their favorite Superstars. But listen, listen to these people!

“YES!” “YES!” “Daniel Bryan!” “YES!”

Steph – I can’t really understand what they’re saying. Some are chanting one thing, others are chanting another, they can’t get it all together.

“Daniel Bryan!”

Bryan – And there it is. I’m not here to complain about last night, what’s happened has happened. In the Elimination Chamber, the WWE WHC is on the line. I want in that match.

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!” Trip whispers in Steph’s ear, they both smirk.

Bryan – I want that match, they want that match, Steph,if you want to step aside. Hunter, I don’t think either of us should leave this ring until I get what I want!

Bryan steps right up to Trip. Bryan stares up at Trip who stares down at Bryan. Right up close, almost nose to nose. (Sam says, “Bryan’s gonna kiss him!”) Trip seethes as the fans chant, “Daniel Bryan!”

Trip – That sounds good Bryan, but it’s not just you and me in this ring, it sounds like right about now you’ve got company.

The Shield’s music hits and out they come. Bryan runs from the ring, grabs a chair, then back into the ring and get ready. The Shield comes down through the crowd. Ambrose over the barricade without issue, but then Rollins tries to jump over and his boot gets caught! Rollins takes down the top padding, and the whole inside black padding of that panel and lands flat on his back spinning, as if he’s trying to break dance.

Bad News Barrett beats his gavel up on his podium.

Barrett – Ladies and gentlemen, can I have some decorum please? Thank you for joining us this evening, but I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news! Bad news for the TV viewers that is. Later there’s a match that pits Miz against Dolph Ziggler. (mixed, then gavel pounding) It’s a match that’s called The Battle of Cleveland. (gavel) I’m glad that it’s not been entitled, The Battle For Cleveland, because, let’s face it, that’s the type of match-up that would have two losers! Highly appropriate, as Cleveland is a town inhabited exclusively by losers! Thank you very much! (gavel)

In Ring Segment

Maddox – Good evening, I’m the GM of RAW, Brad Maddox, and it’s my pleasure to introduce your WWE WHC, The Viper, Randy Orton!

Orton slowly out to the stage, strap in each hand. He drapes the WWE Title over his shoulder, starts heading down, then drapes the WHC over the other shoulder. To the ring he slides the belts into the ring, then in as Cole, JBL and King talk about Orton in Elimination Chamber. The fans are not giving him much heat, but no pop. A small “Daniel Bryan!” chant starts as Orton takes up the mic, and it gets louder as he speaks.

Orton – The Champ… Is here. (tiny bit of mixed) Despite what most of you thought would happen last night, I beat Cena, again, and walked out with these two titles in my grasp. Some of you say it was a hollow victory. That doesn’t matter, what matters is I won! (very little reaction) And then I get to work today and I find out that in less than a month I’m to defend my Title against 5 other Superstars in Elimination Chamber. What kind of garbage is that Brad? (right up in Maddox’s face) Is that your idea? The Authority’s? HUH? Listen, I demand a little respect. I’m The face of the WWE. Not Batista, not Brock…

Batista’s music and he comes out in a dark purple mottled t-shirt, a gray hoodie left open, and a military style olive green jacket over looser fitting distressed blue jeans, and work boots, with some scruff on his face. Orton is having a fit at Maddox in the ring. Batista takes Maddox’s mic, and gets more heat than Orton did the whole time he’s been out so far.

Batista – Congratulations Randy. I mean it, that was a hell of a performance last night, hell of a match. But, like I told you last week.

Batista stops and looks at the fans who have a couple disjointed “Daniel Bryan!” chants going on.

Batista – But, like I told you last week, I’m back for three reasons, to win the Royal Rumble, headline WrestleMania, and walk out of WrestleMania WWE WHC. Two down, one to go. I don’t care who I face at the Superdome. I don’t care if it’s you, it’s not personal. I don’t care if it’s Cena. I don’t care if The Shield, and I don’t care if it’s Daniel Bryan. (pop) And I don’t care if it’s the winner of the Elimination Chamber Match! So on April 6, I don’t care whether you, or The Authority like it or not, I’m walking out of WrestleMania WWE WHC, and nothing’s going to change that. (heat)

Brock’s music hits (about three seconds after I called it aloud). Brock has pyro, and Heyman in tow. Brock to the bottom of the ramp, bounces on the balls of his feet, then up on the apron. Brock into the ring, and Maddox looks nervous.

Heyman – Mr. Maddox, my name is Paul Heyman, and I stand before you as the advocate for Brock Lesnar. My client, sir, has authorized me to inform you, respectfully that his patience is running thin. Which means that my client says you need to go back to The Authority, and let them know they have two choices. Choice number one, as you’re GM and I’m a promoter, let’s make history here tonight, right here in Cleveland, Ohio. (eye roll) And you authorize a match with the WWE WHC Randy Orton in a Title Match against The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar!

Orton pitches an absolute fit! Stomping all over the ring, yelling no, flailing, and turning purple in the process. “YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Heyman – My client is not an unreasonable man, so we’re not demanding, we’re just suggesting it, because choice number 2 would be that you put the obvious #1 Contender, Brock Lesnar against the so-called #1 Contender, Batista! Personally, I like both suggestions, but it’s not up to me, whichever Steph and Trip makes, the winners are the WWE ‘Universe’. Therefore, my client wants Trip and Steph’s answer tonight – or else!

Heyman and Brock leave the ring, Brock glaring the whole time. Orton is still tweaking in the ring, but Batista is a an ice statue. Heyman, off mic yells that he’s just the advocate!

    This will be the year of Roman Reigns!

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

    Hello, and welcome to what could be the craziest RAW Open Thread we’ve ever had. Please, feel free to let loose tonight.

    Let it all hang out, though please try to keep cussing to a minimum. Jesse will let some slide tonight, especially after last night, but don’t go hog wild.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye, as I want to let loose with a tirade myself, but I’m trying to stay PG here!

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

        Make it PG11 tonight. Some people will have it in them, and if it comes out, don’t tweak too quickly.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I won’t, but I have an image to maintain, thus why I don’t let mine fly. But everyone else, by all means! Just don’t be ridiculous with the language!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hey everyone! After last night’s brutal to watch Royal Rumble. what are you hoping to see tonight?

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

      PM

    • Mike McCarthy

      BATISTA HEEL TURN!!!!!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That already pretty much happened last night, with Dave flipping the fans off in a Yes chant!

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

          I missed that!

        • Mike McCarthy

          Were there videos??!?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I don’t have a vid, but Richard posted about it.

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

            I have been out all day, so I only skimmed the site.

          • Mike McCarthy

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-2l_zyqj6c only two pictures, both included in this mini-slideshow

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Thanks Mike!

          • Mike McCarthy

            Of course.

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

            Mike, you amaze me!

          • Mike McCarthy

            I’m honored.

          • Xavier

            Any chance you think Batista acting heelish, Bryan tweeting, Foley tweeting and Bryan no showing is all a work leading something even bigger?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I hope so. Maybe a Bryan/Batista face off!

    • Danny Philippi

      The return of Mr. McMahon so he could fire the Authority. That’s what I hope.

    • packerpf

      Sheamus establish a feud; and the set up for elimination chamber; and to see where Kane v Cm Punk goes.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I think they’re heading fuels steam ahead with Trip vs. Punk at ‘Mania with Punk facing Kane at EC.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I just want WWE to at least try to fix their epic mistake last night.

    • IWCer

      Anything other than the canned predictability we got last night!
      All the heels went over, and they managed to do it in a way that upset kid fans, and IWC “smart” fans. I don’t know of anyone who left last night happy or excited about what happened.

      Know what makes this right? Set in motion events to take the belt from Randy. (And I like randy, he’s really talented, man.) I like Batista, but turn him heel. He’s not the guy we want, and not right now, and not this program. It’s stale, and they haven’t even opened the bottle yet.

      “Anything other than what you did last night is an improvement, vince.” I’d rather see Hogan in a walker, talk about the WWE app for 30 seconds than see a segment trying to make us “deal with” the results of last night. Undo as much as possible, as fast as possible.

      • Xavier

        “All the heels went over, and they managed to do it in a way that upset kid fans, and IWC “smart” fans. I don’t know of anyone who left last night happy or excited about what happened.”

        I literally laughed out loud at this

    • Xavier

      I get the feeling that we may reach over 1000 tonight. People are always making empty threats about how “they’ll never order a PPV” or “how they’ll turn into TNA instead” and so on & so on. But we all know they will be right in front of the TV at 8 ET as always.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Preview: “Just 24 hours after Batista triumphed in the 2014 Royal Rumble Match, what awaits on Raw? Join the convo on Twitter using #Raw.”

  • Danny Philippi

    Hello everyone in the WNW Nation! Hope everyone has recovered from the abomination of wrestling booking at last night’s Royal Rumble match. Loved Orton and Cena trading each other’s signature moves and the Wyatt/Bryan match, but the rest of the PPV was like watching NOC, Battleground, and Hell in the Cell.

  • John

    I have noticed a trend in recent months that the RAW after a WWE PPV is always great (probably because the PPV’s suck so bad) but anyway I’m interested to see what they do tonight.

  • Danny Philippi

    It also sounds bad but I was more interested to the end of the Pro Bowl than the end of the Royal Rumble. It had a less predictable ending. Once Punk was eliminated, I lost it. Three musclemen at the end is what Mr. McMahon dreams of.

  • Xavier

    I just wanted too say that I have absolutely no issue with fans getting impatient, angry and irritated with the booking of Daniel Bryan. I get it, I was very let down by last night as much as everyone else but with all that said I just wanna say that What’s the point of trying to hijack the show? I mean yeah fans can show up and “hijack” the show all they want but that won’t change a damn thing. One thing that people fail to realize is that once you buy a ticket Vince has already won. After that point those fans can chant whatever they want and while they’re doing all that huffing & puffing Vince is backstage counting all the money. If the so-called smart fans were really smart then they should of realized a long time ago that the only way to truly get Vince’s attention is by hurting him in his checkbook. Vince seeing RAW/House Shows/WrestleMania with half the arena empty would do 100x more in forcing change then PAYING him money just too hijack a show. Vince will continue to not take smarks seriously until they actually do this.

    P.S, signing a silly petition online won’t do much of anything either

    • Mike McCarthy

      After last years SuperBowl I started a petition to get rid of the referee who lost the game for the Niners. …..It got three other signatures….

      • Xavier

        LMAO

      • Danny Philippi

        Please! The Niners fell behind 28-3 to the Ravens and allowed Joe Flacco to get paid.

        • Mike McCarthy

          And the Niners came back and would’ve scored a touchdown to take the lead with seconds left. But the ref didn’t call an obvious pass interference, I’m not gonna sit around and argue about it. It’s common knowledge.

          • Danny Philippi

            Even if the Niners got the holding call called, they would have the ball on the two yard line with a little over a minute remaining. And Frank Gore was not a factor in the game, so Kaepernick still had to throw on Baltimore. Sometimes, destiny trumps all.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Are you seriously trying to start an argument about something this stupid on a Wrestling thread of all places?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Hug it out you two!

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

      Ed, you’ve been quite vocal online, and I’d like to continue our conversation where it is, when I’m not in the middle of work. I hope you will continue to (nicely) keep people from going too overboard tonight.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That’s Andre sis.

        • Xavier

          Lol, yeah I got confused the ED as well. Wasn’t sure if she meant to reply to someone else

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

            Sorry, no clue how I pulled that one, or where it came from! I guess it looked too much like what I saw earlier and didn’t even look at the name! Sorry about that! I’ll focus on the play-by-play from here on out!

      • Nostaljack

        I’ll do my best. I’m just loving this show of emotion! It’s so very 1980′s. LOL!!!

    • Alex Gallardo

      That’s where a problem starts with wrestling fans. Hell, even if they do like someone they’ll still stream PPVS, and won’t bother to buy that person’s merchandise. If you want Vince to hear your opinion, try actually doing something that has an effect on the WWE, don’t just type mean comments that they won’t read on the Internet.

      • Xavier

        You hit the nail on the head. This is why Vince values the marks more so then he ever will the smarks. Great point!

    • Nostaljack

      There’s a petition? Are you kidding me? ROFL!!!! This is much!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Video of NAO post-match interview last night. Road Dogg: “14 years in the making, 6 time WWE Tag Team Champions.” The interviewer (unknown) asks how they feel about some people thinking they only got their title because of The Authroity. Billy Gunn gets offended and starts to get mad, Road Dogg interrupts and says “What I think he meant to say was we just beat the tag team champions WITH AUTHORITY. Now if you’re not down with that, tell it” Gunn: “SUCK IT!”

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Glad to have these App updates back Mike!

  • Shain Rhyno Simons

    I don’t get why people expected something else to happen…

  • Shain Rhyno Simons

    I’m a Batista fan, and the outrage over the RR makes me want to distance myself from the IWC

    • Danny Philippi

      I do not hate Batista. I actually picked him to main event WrestleMania when he is return promos began. But to not have Daniel Bryan in the Rumble match is like having the top vote-getter in the All Star voting in any pro sport not be allowed to play in the All Star game.

      • Ashley

        That is a great analogy for what happened!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I know that while some people can go overboard in the IWC, you shouldn’t leave. Having a unique viewpoint on things in wrestling opens up discussions and and fun debates, if someone goes crazy and just starts an insult war,ignore them.

      • Xavier

        It took awhile for people to warm up too me when I first starting commenting on here for the reasons you just mentioned as well

        • Alex Gallardo

          Tell me about it, while some of my thoughts on wrestling have changed quite a bit, I have received a lot of hate for some of the things that I say from the IWC.

          • Xavier

            I’m a Cena fan so just imagine the grief I get lol

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Kicks out at 2*

          • Xavier

            Lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, I’m sorry you feel that way, but surely you can see most fans perspective. Why not push the hottest guy in WWE right now instead of a guy who has been gone for over 3 years and just came back?

      • Shain Rhyno Simons

        The last time they pushed the hottest guy in the company he left the company (Jeff Hardy)

      • Shain Rhyno Simons

        And I would be wary of the same thing happening again

        • Jesse Sherwood

          The difference between Hardy and Bryan is vast. Hardy was battling a ton of personal demons at the time and was in a bad way. Bryan is dedicated to his craft and has a sensible head on his shoulders.

      • Xavier

        It’s interesting though b/c the same people that were crapping on Batista last night were also the same people that were marking out for the New Age Outlaws winning the title and the same people who have pushing for Steve Austin to comeback and face Punk. Often times people contradict themselves when it comes to part timers

        • Ashley

          But Cody and Goldy haven’t been basically on the losing end of every program they’ve had for several months like Bryan has been. It is two different cases.

    • packerpf

      It would have been better to get him involved through Elimination Chamber after a great performance in the RR.

  • Nostaljack

    Hello, my fellow marks!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hey Ed!

      • Nostaljack

        Hey, Jesse! ARN!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          GENE!

  • Nostaljack

    Anyone seen any good works lately? LOL!!

    • Xavier

      Lol, what’s good bro

      • Nostaljack

        What it is, Xavier. How’s the blood pressure?? LOL!

        • Xavier

          I’m as cool as the backside of a pillow

          • Nostaljack

            You and I are likely alone. You can cut the tension in these parts with a butter knife.

          • Xavier

            Lol very true. The more & more I think about it the more & more I think about fake Rosie vs fake Trump, remember how fans crapped on that and that was actually the reaction Vince was counting on. Well we all know what that lead too, easily one of the biggest money making angles of the past 25-30 years. If I’m not mistaken WM23 still generated the biggest buyrate in Mania history and a large oart of that was due to the mainstream exposure that Trump vs Vince got.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Post Rumble Interviews with Rumble Rookies from WWE.com
    Alexander Rusev: He asks what it was like in his first Rumble match. He says a lot of stuff in another language and then says “I crush any superstar”

    Big E Langston: “Being 29 was a great opportunity and an honor but unfortunately came up short, but I’m still honored to be your IC Champ.

    Fandango: “There’s a large enormous rat problem here in pittsburgh. Something happened where this large white rat came into the ring, I got scared and fell over the top rope. Fortunately we already booked two rooms on priceline.”

    El Torito: He just gords the interviewer and then says OLE!

    Usos: “We’re just looking forward to the next Royal Rumble, we’re gonna bring it cuz that’s all we can do.”

    Fandango’s interview was very funny.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Rusev was speaking Bulgarian.

  • Seth

    Good evening everyone. I’m just gonna come into this RAW and just do what I can to enjoy the show because I don’t like being negative and dropping f-bombs. I’d rather have fun and occasionally make fun of the wrestlers I don’t like. Let’s have a good one.

    • Nostaljack

      Everyone is so tense…LOLOLOL!!!

      • Seth

        That’s what she said. :P

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

        That’s putting it mildly.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye, that can be agreed. Let’s hope WWE gives us something to cheer tonight.

    • Alex Gallardo

      We have two choices at this point, we can make the best of what we have, or start our own wrestling company.

      • Nostaljack

        Let’s do it! We’ll call it TNA…oh, wait…

      • Jimmy

        Lol let’s go with option 2, I shotgun a position on creative.

        • Nostaljack

          Nah, let’s get Vince Russo. He’s amaze-balls.

          • Jimmy

            Russo, Heyman and Zebb Colter!

          • Nostaljack

            Russo and Zeb have already been together. Heyman, on the other hand, would be the greatest!

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

    Do we have a final time on the RR match?

  • packerpf

    How’s everyone feeling about NAO getting the titles..

    • Seth

      Part of me doesn’t like it with the whole part timer gets the belt…but on the other hand after I digested it more…this can really make another team potentially for life(I.E. The Usos) if done right. I’m a lot more okay about it now than how I felt about it when it happened live. I’d even say I feel good about it.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, I feel it is an excellent way to but over a upcoming tag team. Maybe the Usos?

      • Seth

        Way to beat me to the punch with far fewer words sir. :P

    • Bob’s Diner

      Lame. The looked really old out there – Road Dogg sounded winded just doing the introduction. And winning as clean as they did doesn’t really make it look like they only got the match due to being HHH’s buddies

      • Xavier

        What’s good Diner, you sticking around tonight?

        • Bob’s Diner

          I might – I would love to watch it for the crowd, so might hang out and see if worth watching when I get home. I expect you to fill me in, OK?

          You good, X?

          • Xavier

            I got you bro. Yessir, just chilling man

          • Bob’s Diner

            Thanks bro – you da man!
            What did you think of Mick Foley’s son saying about Triple H?
            It would seem he hates him more than I do!

            Reading the comments so far… this seem even more like a work now?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Just as a reminder, we here at WNW know tensions are running high after last night so the rules will be a little looser on language tonight. Just don’t get over the top with it, and leave deities out of it.

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

      And please don’t attack each other, even if you don’t agree. Focus your ire on what you dislike about the WWE and wrestling, not how you feel about the people you’re talking about. As I said earlier, we will be more relaxed tonight, but only to a point.

      • Xavier

        I’m about to drop a pipebomb tonight then :-P

        • Nostaljack

          …and I’m gonna drop a pipe cleaner…

    • Alex Gallardo

      Eh, I don’t see how someone could take wrestling that seriously. It’s fun to watch and yes, last night was really awful, but I don’t think that it’s anything to get crazy over.

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

        You have gotten into at least one quite heated ‘discussion’ with me about wrestling in the past, so I know you have it in you Alex.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Don’t worry, I’ll be WNW’s little sweetheart toinght.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Awe! *Hugs*

      • Tim

        It’s not that it’s just wrestling. Or that it’s all predetermined. It’s that we have been spending almost all our life’s watching something and Following something. Only for it to be willingly ruined. Just like all sports when our teams suck. We all get mad over it. Entertainment is emotional. Positive or not.

    • Nostaljack

      A language warning?????? ROFLROFLROFLROFL!!!! This is MUCH!

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

        Hey, we have a low to no cussing rule around here! We’re just saying that it’s going to be more relaxed tonight. Let it hang out, just not all of it!

        • Ashley

          I’m not sure we should let anything “hang out”! lol

          • Jesse Sherwood

            lol! Glad to see you this week Ashley!

          • Ashley

            Thanks! I finally got a Monday off!

        • Nostaljack

          I just think it’s award-winning that Jesse felt the need to do that…LOL!!!!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It was needed so everyone knew what was being allowed tonight!

          • Jimmy

            Can we get some examples of what words are on the the ‘can-go-for-tonight” list?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Basically anything other than GD and F Bombs, and I can excuse a singular F Bomb. I just don’t want to see walls of cussing.

  • Danny Philippi

    All this talk about Batista and Daniel Bryan, and I realized that Orton retained due to the Wyatt Family distracting Cena AND Roman Reigns broke the elimination record. WOW!

  • Jimmy

    I guess everyone is expecting some therapeutic relief from tonight’s raw to repay the people who were disappointed by the Royal Rumble?

  • ron

    People that understand the business ie. Jr and maybe Mr. Gray understand that winning the rumble and putting belts on people are tools to get performers over. With that Understanding Daniel Bryan DOES NOT NEED either. He is already Over as much as anyone as ever been. They need others Batista as example to get over so that is why he wins the Rumble and will get strapped with a belt.

    • Danny Philippi

      Again, my fury isn’t about Bryan not winning the Rumble (I had Batista winning from the time his promos hyping his return), but it is with Bryan not being in the Rumble match, period. Austin was in the Rumble every year from 97-01 except 2000 when his injured his neck. Hogan was in the Rumble match from 1990-92. Those superstars had the popularity that Bryan has now, yet Bryan wasn’t allowed to show case his ability in the “All-Star” match of WWE.

  • The Breaker

    I can’t believe how out of touch TPTB really are. Vince had to be just a little bit embarrassed by the way the fans took a giant dump over the WWEWHC match and towards the end of the Rumble match when everyone realized that Bryan was left out. Putting Batista over in the Rumble was an incredibly asinine move, and I hope they end up paying for it. I’m not watching RAW live tonight. I’m just too peeved over the whole situation. Even if they somehow make it right, it wasn’t at all worth it for them to sacrifice the Rumble match so they can book Batista on in the ‘Mania main event. It ticked off a huge part of the WWE fan base, and that’s really the last thing you want to do when your big money event (the WWE Network launch) is right around the corner.

  • Xavier

    Anyone else think we’re breaking the record for most comments in a RAW watch party?

    • Jimmy

      Without a doubt. But does it count if 98% of the comments are negative? lol

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It did the last time we broke it!

        • Jimmy

          Whats the current record anyway?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            1284

          • Xavier

            We will beat that tonight

      • Xavier

        Lol good point

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I can hope, but we also know that numbers have been down. But with the ire out there, it could happen!!!

    • packerpf

      We have a great start already and after one of the more “lack luster” RR ppv’s in a VERY long time a lot are curious how they will attempt to recover.

    • The Breaker

      I’m choosing not to watch live, which means I won’t be sticking around, but I’m sure you guys will crush the record without me.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Come on Breaker! I need someone to get my nerdy references!

        • The Breaker

          There’ll be another day!

    • Alex Gallardo

      To be honest, if there does end up being a lot of comments on here, I probably won’t stay for the whole watch party. Good luck with that record though.

  • Nostaljack

    Here we go. Let the anger and vitriol commence!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      *RKOs Ed*

      • Nostaljack

        Ouch! Do you have any idea how long it’s gonna take for my widows peak to grow back?

    • Seth

      *While seeing the RKO* That was fast.

  • Tim

    Prepare for Batista to have the tightest jeans know to man…and woman

  • Jimmy

    Everyone’s talking about how Bryan got robbed but am I the only one feeling some type of way for Ziggler?

    • Ashley

      No, wish he would have lasted more than a couple of minutes but coming off his second concussion in less than a year, could kind of understand it

      • Jimmy

        Hmm i guess your right. But the 2nd to 3rd loudest reaction of the night they should of let make it to the last 5 at the least.

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

    oh great HHH

  • Danny Philippi

    Timers set and …go!

  • packerpf

    so now will we get a randy interruption and lots of whining/gloating before batista lays him out?

  • K!NG

    Never play the rumble drinking game

  • Mike McCarthy

    “It would take a calculator to count how many times Lesnar hit Big Show with that chair!”
    ……or just a pencil and a sheet of paper.

  • Seth

    New drinking game from now until Mania…take a shot every time someone points at the WM sign hanging up there.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Authority promo starts at 8:03, SYNCHRONIZE YOUR WATCHES!!!!

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

    the crowd is going to make the show tonight

  • Alex Gallardo

    The crowd is already hijacking the show, and I love it!

  • Nostaljack

    Cool. The audience is mad too!!! LOL!!! I love it when the world gets worked!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Actually liking how Trip is playing off the crowd last night….

  • Xavier

    I’m already loving this promo. Nostaljack you thnking what I’m thinking?

  • K!NG

    Lol hhh

  • Jesse Sherwood

    HHH is tearing into all of the fans! We are starting just how I thought we would!

    • Xavier

      The booking of a Rumble is one big long work, I’m getting that vibe

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I hope so! Please let WWE have pulled the biggest swerve on the fans in 10 years!

      • Cubed56

        i really would like to believe that, but there is no way vince would ever do that and allow one of the big 4 ppvs to be crapped all over

        • Xavier

          Or would he. Hmmmmmmmmmmm

          • Cubed56

            its very possible, this is the time for vince to show hes still got it

        Are you not loving this?

        • David Jr.

          If its going the way I think its going, then yes.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It is classic Heel promoting!

    • John

      You do realise that the entire RAW script was rewriting after what happened at the Royal Rumble! But please by all means, continue to act like you can see what nobody else can apparently!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No personal attacks John. One and only warning.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Things are already getting crazy and we haven’t even watched Raw for 30 minutes.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Who thinks we get the EC participants tonight?

    • packerpf

      At least half hopefully

  • Ashley

    YES! YES! YES!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here comes BRYAN!!!

  • Seth

    Here we go.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Welcome to the show getting hijacked for the rest of the night!

    • Seth

      Population: Everyone who is along for the ride.

  • Danny Philippi

    This can rival the post-WrestleMania XXIX crowd in North Jersey.

  • Andrew

    here we go !

  • Mike McCarthy

    I definitely disagree with people who think Royal Rumble was all a work, this is right now is just WWE doing damage control, but doing it well.

    • Ashley

      Agreed. These last 6 months have shown they are not capable of that level of a work.

  • Cubed56

    well at least i now can confirm the social media stuff by bryan is an angle

    • Xavier

      Me & Nostaljack think the same thing

      • Cubed56

        im actually happy, its not like DB to talk like that about wwe, i was getting worried he got so frustrated that he was going ziggler, and we all know how that went

        • Xavier

          That and then the way Batista acted after the show went off the air, I knew something was up

          • Cubed56

            very true, i honestly think though that batistas reaction was legitimate anger from him

  • packerpf

    So anyone else bugged that Bray stopped selling the “leg injury” during his match?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bryan/Bray was easily a MotY candidate.

    • Mike McCarthy

      100000% agree

    • packerpf

      hoping they can top it and that was only a sample because last year was one of their lesser years imo.

    • David Jr.

      Does Bray Wyatt now get the title of future World Champion?

    • BIG M

      It was a pretty good performance by Bray and DB but its a bit early to start calling M.O.T.Y. candidates just yet.

      • TheDeadOwl

        Just out of curiosity, when is a good time to say a match is a MOTY candidate March? June?

        Will it be beat in the next 11 months, probably, but so far, 4 weeks into the year, it’s a MOTY candidate.

        If Lebron or Durant have a great start over the first month of the season, people will say they’re early MVP candidates, how is what Jesse is saying any different?

  • packerpf

    A ‘YES’ movement!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Better than the bowel movement that was the Rumble!

  • Nostaljack

    Daniel’s tweet is being promoted on the app. It’s called work, kids. I LOVE THIS!

    • Xavier

      Me too.

    • Ashley

      Or damage control

      • Nostaljack

        They’re even working that! Listen to it!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And WWE has finally learned how to use Social Media to their advantage.

      • Nostaljack

        Yep, and everyone’s getting had by it!

    • Alex Gallardo

      If this really is going in that direction, then I’m actually digging this angle.

  • Taylor

    Vince McMahon = Jerry Jones. Now we all know what it’s like to be a Cowboys Fan

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

    I’m Lovin this

  • K!NG

    I love the authoritys answears lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the fans say YES!

  • monty

    what’s up everyone?

    this reaction reminds me of Autin’s in Attitude Era

  • Mike McCarthy

    This might be a random comment but I think the only other person that could pull of Triple H’s current gimmick is JBL.

  • packerpf

    Didn’t we already have this back in September, and then again in November?

  • Dj Marvelouz

    WHOOOOO DANIEL BRYAN!!

  • packerpf

    que randy

  • Stephen Cash

    Daniel Bryan wins the title in the chamber. Bryan vs Orton vs Batista for WM?

    • Alex Gallardo

      That actually sounds like a good idea. I would just want Batista to win the belt an have the authority betray Randy Orton in the process.

      • Stephen Cash

        No way DB should retain in that case

        • Alex Gallardo

          I’m sorry, I mean that I want him to win the belt at EC. Then they could have Bryan win at WM.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Like I said on FaceBook, Bryan vs. Batista for the title.

  • Xavier

    Where’s Punk at

  • Seth

    BWAHAHAHA! Sorry Rollins but that was hilarious.

  • Mike McCarthy

    ROLLINS JUST FELL

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Funniest botch this year!

      • Seth

        The year is young so I think that more than fits. I lul’d though. No lie.

  • Taylor

    Down goes Rollins!!!

  • packerpf

    batista going to save and be face?

    • packerpf

      nm sheamus ha

  • Jesse Sherwood

    SHEAMUS!

    • Seth

      I said it when he returned at the rumble…I’ll go ahead and say(well yell) it now.

      FELLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • monty

    we have seen this before man

  • Mike McCarthy

    SHEAMUS!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And CENA!!!

  • packerpf

    cena? thought they were going to start a program with the wyatts for him..should have been punk

  • Cubed56

    i really hope this is not the start of the ridiculous sheamus v DB at WM

    • Xavier

      Don’t even speak of such things

      • Cubed56

        lol im sorry i guess i have accepted the fact that we are bound to see matches we have no interests in or re-hashes of rivalries we’ve seen multiple times already

    • Stephen Cash

      That would be a huge disappointment

      • Cubed56

        that’s the way WM is booked right now for DB

    • Ashley

      Well apparently that is what TPTB think we want to see again at WM

      • Cubed56

        thats the problem they know we don’t want to, but WM is sold out 6 months in advance so they don’t give a s**t what we want, they already got the fans money

    • Alex

      I’m with you 100% but I’d actually be okay with them facing each at Mania only if the title was on the line so Bryan can redeem his 18 seconds loss and walk out of Mania as Champion. DB vs Sheamus doesn’t sound that bad just it’d be frustrating if facing Sheamus kept Bryan out of the title picture.

      • Cubed56

        if the title was on the line ok, but if its not that would be 3 times in 5 years DB and Sheamus have fought at WM, i don’t want to see it again. To be honest i don’t want to see it all title on the line or not

        • Alex

          Fair enough. I definitely don’t want to see DB vs Sheamus non-title again but I’m just saying them two facing for the title at mania wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.

          • Cubed56

            i gotcha, i agree at least DB would have his title shot

  • Stephen Cash

    Where is Teddy?

  • Mike McCarthy

    Boy have I missed seeing Sheamus in the ring, I might say it a lot tonight. My favorite of the current roster.

  • K!NG

    Sheamus is my guy

  • Taylor

    Super friends reunite!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    CAN WE GET A TEDDY LONG SPECIAL!?!?!?!?!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Holla Playa!

  • The_nugget

    Did anyone else see Rollins fall

    • Draven

      Yea i saw it in the corner of the screen he was mad and slapped the mad in frustion.

  • Stephen Cash

    Sheamus is boring. But has an awesome finisher

  • sdunne87

    Did anyone else just see Seth Rollins blooper? Took himself out but sold it well

    • Xavier

      Lol yeah

  • packerpf

    When and where and how is taker going to get involved?

  • Nostaljack

    Saxton on the app!

  • Stephen Cash

    I would love Taker vs Bryan at WM… but it doesnt make sense

  • Jesse Sherwood

    AS A REMINDER:
    Personal attacks on other members are not tolerated, and WILL result in a ban.

    • Stephen Cash

      Who?

      • Nostaljack

        Eric Bischoff got in here and…oh, sorry…

  • Shadow

    I saw that. Those mats have not been holding very well the last few weeks and the camrea cut to Seth eating it at just the right moment. I needed that laugh.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We’re joined by BYRON SAXTON, he welcomes us. Mathews comes out and says he doesn’t know who he is. Byron: “Remember me? we did ECW commentary a few years ago…..” Mathews: “no….wait, weren’t we on season one of Tough Enough together?” Mathews then reveals he was kidding the whole time and welcomes Saxton, now he gets to be a part of Monday Night Raw every week.

    • Mike McCarthy

      SORT OF BREAKING NEWS: Byron Saxton is now the host of the WWE App!!

      • Alex

        He’s a decent NXT commentator so it should be interesting.

    • Nostaljack

      He said Byron Kelly too. Did he mean to do that, I wonder?

      • Mike McCarthy

        LOL! I keep forgetting he’s a commentator. He wrestled on one of the seasons of NXT I think.

        • David Jr.

          Yes he did, Season 2, I believe.

  • Danny Philippi

    To me, that segment was special. Bryan’s intensity towards the Authority felt genuine and Triple H furthered his Mr. McMahon type character. The Shield is what the Corporation was in late 1998-early 1999. Rollins spilling was funny and Sheamus and Cena saving Bryan was as hilarious.

  • Cory S

    Every time Bryan and Sheamus are in the ring together from now on, I will fear the start of their program. Guessing that would happen at Elimination Chamber? Maybe Sheamus eliminates Bryan?

  • Nostaljack

    Huni-cara!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And Rey Rey!

  • Seth

    Poor Mysterio gets the jobber entrance. Man…he’s not done well since returning in essence.

  • packerpf

    anyone else surprised by the extreme boos for rey last night? like I understand the disappointment for DB, but they cheered heavy for rey thrown out even.

    • BrooksOglesby

      Anyone would’ve gotten boos, Rey was just the fall guy. They weren’t booing Rey, they were booing the absence of Bryan. It was when they realized Bryan wasn’t winning. Same thing with Reigns. He got the only non-boo reaction in the closing minutes because he was the last hope of stopping Batista.

  • Xavier

    They handled that opening segment very well I must say

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Yes I agree. I’m glad they opened the show with Daniel. Hottest commodity right now.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      A lot better than I expected.

  • Alex Gallardo

    There are way too many comments going on in this thread. I can barely pay attention to Raw, so I’ll have to leave this thread for a little while.

    • packerpf

      don’t be a pansy ;) just do your best we’re setting the record tonight.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      If you feel you must. But we’re going to miss you!

  • Nostaljack

    El Gato…LOL

  • Stephen Cash

    Outcome of the main event is obvious now…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I can agree, but it will still be a fun match!

    • Cubed56

      yea shield wins, then either rollins and ambrose turn on reigns in the chamber or vice versa reigns turns on them

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Real Americans vs. Lucha Libre! Yes!

  • Xavier

    This ”We The People” crap has ran dry 3 months ago

    • Stephen Cash

      we need gimmick progression big time

      • Xavier

        Agreed. This gimmick isn’t getting any heat whatsoever

        • Alex

          Weren’t they going to break Cesaro away from Colter & Swagger? I think they should go with that idea soon.

          • Xavier

            Agreed. I stopped taking this gimmick seriously when Cesaro joined honestly. A Anti-Immigrant group taking in a immigrant doesn’t make sense

          • Bob’s Diner

            At least Zeb’s signs at the Rumble were funny

        • Cubed56

          that’s cause people are actually cheering for it for some reason

          • Xavier

            Not sure if they are cheering the gimmick, I think it’s more Cesaro then anything

          • Cubed56

            true

    • Mike McCarthy

      Sort of, Zeb has definitely ran dry. “We The People” still gets loud reactions from the fans and their in-ring has been great.

      • Xavier

        They like saying it but it doesn’t generate any heat. You mean Cesaro has been great lol

        • Mike McCarthy

          Yes, and yes.

    • packerpf

      they can’t break it up without more tag teams and confidence in said tag teams, but they let the wolves go.

    • mike

      Yea. Thats why the fans are joining in with it huh

      • Stephen Cash

        Not really, but kinda

      • Xavier

        Besides them saying WE THE PEOPLE this gimmick isn’t getting any heat

    • David Jr.

      Looks like it maybe ending soon.

    • Mike McCarthy

      $#!T, I think you just made the prediction of the year…

    • packerpf

      when they finally bring up the ascension they could break up we the people.

  • mike

    Seriously. Cena getting a title shot 3 ppvs in a row?

    • Xavier

      Why is that surprising?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      WWE feels they need him in the title picture now. I wish they knew how wrong they were.

    • Cubed56

      is that all that new from anything we’ve seen the last 10 years

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: How much of a bonus to people think Punk asked for, for letting the midget bull give him a hurricurana at the Rumble? Anyone?

  • Danny Philippi

    This match reminds me how Swagger has fallen from where he was 12 months ago.

    • Mike McCarthy

      12 months ago he wasn’t in WWE, he didn’t return until February, it’s still January my friend ;)

      • Danny Philippi

        Mike, I know Swagger did not come back till Feb. last year. Saying he was prepping for his push 12 months ago as he adopted the Real American persona.

        • Mike McCarthy

          Lol, I’m just messin’ with you bud.

  • Seth

    Jack really didn’t take that front head scissors well at all. Yipe.

  • sdunne87

    Cesaro’s sign supposed to be showing he’s against Mexican wrestlers or is he advertising for a new partner so Swagger won’t hold him back anymore?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yes to both!

  • Nostaljack

    Cool! Dissension!!

  • Stephen Cash

    Swagger needs to go!!! and maybe we are getting that

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

    Of these Who will be in the elimination match?
    Wyatt
    Bryan
    Cena
    Orton
    The shield
    HHH
    Batista
    or….

  • Nostaljack

    Oh no. My fear is they may turn Swagger face. That’ll NEVER go over.

    • Stephen Cash

      He will just disappear until his contract runs out

    • Alex

      Agreed, I don’t think I could ever be a Swagger fan.

      • Nostaljack

        Me neither. Not at all!

        • Alex

          Glad I’m not alone. Granted I’m pretty sure Kendra(her comments on her RAW Blog imply it) along with others would agreed.

      • Ashley

        Agreed to that

  • Seth

    That’s a bitchslap.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye, it was!

      • Seth

        I enjoyed it.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Can Billy Gunn pull off a role as Dolph Ziggler’s father or older brother?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yes, as Gunn is 50!

      • BrooksOglesby

        The current tag champs have a combined age of 94 years old. Jeez.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          And 3 of the 4 men in the Tag Title match last night were over age 44.

        • David Jr.

          Should we call them the Old Age Outlaws now?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That was a really awful WCW gimmick!

          • David Jr.

            Oh how can a team with Arn Anderson, Larry Zbyszko, Paul Orndorff, and Terry Funk be awful.

      • David Jr.

        How many other 50 or older have held a title in the WWE? I can think of Vince McMahon, Bret Hart, Ric Flair, Roddy Piper, and Moolah.

  • David Jr.

    Does Kane get credit for tying HBK’s record because he eliminated Punk or no because he was already eliminated?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Guys, it is so crazy in here that after 20 minute from the start of Raw, I had to refresh my browser due to slowdown!

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Will we finally get Goldust vs Cody Rodes 1 on 1 at WM after what happened at the Rumble?

    • packerpf

      they set it up that way, but hope not.

    • Cubed56

      i hope so, as of right now that would be the only match that actually interests me

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Sin Cara in the corner and stomps from Cesaro. Cesaro then throws Cara into the turnbuckle of another corner. He tosses him across the ring and Sin Cara rolls out during a “We The People” chant. Swagger tags in he clotheslines Sin Cara outside the ring, points towards Mysterio and rolls Cara back in. Two-count. BREAKING NEWS: We got the Teddy Long Special, they announced on commentary that The Shield will face, Cena, Bryan & Sheamus. Cesaro tags in and stomps on Sin Cara, then a two-foot stomp. “We The People” chant coming from the crowd. Which awkwardly turns into a “Sin Ca-ra” chant. Shots from Sin Cara to Cesaro. Cesaro hits a toss and we head back to USA.

    • Mike McCarthy

      At one point on commentary JBL said “There could be 15 Sin Caras!! He’s wearing a mask we can’t see him!!” Thought this was ironic and funny.

  • K!NG

    Atleast these fans care about the match going on

  • Stephen Cash

    I like Huni Cara WAY better

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Loving the possible breakup of Real Americans! Hopefully it will lead to the 100 swings on Swagger so I can win the pool!

  • Seth

    Cesaro has to secretly be a terminator or something because of how freakishly strong he is.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nah, he’s Robocop! *Cheap Plug*

      • Xavier

        Lol

      • Seth

        Now I randomly want to sing ‘The Ultimate Showdown’…in some really bad karaoke.

      • Stephen Cash

        The movie looks epically awful… The only way it could look worse is if Batista was playing robocop…

  • Carlos Aponte Jr

    The crowd is hot tonight.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      With the way RR ended and the fact they opened with Bryan, it was bound to happen!

  • Danny Philippi

    Now Rey Mysterio is getting a big pop.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Were people satisfied with the NXT entrant they had for Rumble or preferred someone else?

    • Alex

      Rusev isnt bad but I would of preferred Sami Zayn or Adrian Neville

  • Wrestling Historian

    I think the phrase that best sums up what Vince is trying to do is “Out with the New, In with the Old”. Anyone agree?

  • sdunne87

    Cesaro has to be strong to carry Swagger for all this time

    • Xavier

      Lol nice

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He has to have a back of steel for that task!

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Cesaro. He’s fantastic. I hope after Wrestlemania, they split the Real Americans and push Cesaro as a singles wrestler again.

  • packerpf

    cesaro deserves a title this year

    • Mike McCarthy

      MITB favorite

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He’s my darkhorse.

      • packerpf

        favorite idk about that one lol.

    • Wrestling Historian

      As long as it’s not the US Title, I would agree.

      • packerpf

        Why with the US title and his gimmick he’d give it the JBL prestige.

      • Carlos Aponte Jr

        Either the intercontinental championship belt or MITB winner. I’m thinking Roman Reigns will probably win and be pushed to the main event scene. Cesaro should get an opportunity again.

  • Xavier

    Really fun tag match

  • Nostaljack

    Mysterio went for his knee on the outside again. I hate it when he does that…

    • Xavier

      You’re being worked

      • Nostaljack

        LOLOL!!!

    • Mike McCarthy

      When I first started watching wrestling Mysterio was my favorite, now I truly wish he’d hang up the boots. It’s scary to think if he hurt it again he might not walk again.

  • Danny Philippi

    WWE should do an All Tag Team Match edition of Raw.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Considering WWE seems to put on excellent 6 man tags of late, it could work.

    • Mike McCarthy

      They do, it’s called SmackDown.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Ouch!

      • Danny Philippi

        The idea needs to be called up. If it works on Smackdown, it should receive a shot on Raw.

    • packerpf

      If they involved NXT tag teams or made it like a strange bed fellows for a title shot that’d be ok maybe.

  • Cubed56

    if its not a rematch, i wouldn’t mind the real americans v NAO at EC for the titles

    • Mike McCarthy

      Rematch is tonight.

      • Cubed56

        i just seen that, good id like to see NAO v TRA or the Usos at EC

  • sdunne87

    I think he tries to slap the lisp out of Swagger

  • Seth

    I approve of more Cesaro killing people with uppercuts and being a general ass kicker.

  • Stephen Cash

    I just pray goldust becomes the heel!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Tag Title rematch tonight! Who’s pumped?

    • packerpf

      only if the titles change hands, but i’m sure they are just going to create the dissent between the brothers instead..

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      I am. If only because I’m curious to see if they will do anything between Goldust & Cody.

  • Wrestling Historian

    Is it me, or do you see more tag matches than singles matches on Raw lately, so they can get as many people on TV as possible??

  • K!NG

    So much for the crowd hijacking the show

    • Danny Philippi

      Unfortunately, Raw is in the city that can’t be pumped for its sports teams. Sorry Browns, Cavs, and Indians haven’t won any titles since 1964

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They got appeased early on. WWE is trying to avoid another RR situation!

  • Nostaljack

    Byron is doing quite well on the app.

  • Andrew

    does sheamus turn heel at the end of raw??? not sure

    • Wrestling Historian

      Yes! Yes! Yes!!

    • packerpf

      no he’s going to be a face for a while

      • Andrew

        well if they are doing the feud with him and daniel bryan then i think so but idk

        • packerpf

          they could create that feud around EC or just after; Sheamus got too big of a pop to be heel right away.

  • packerpf

    How come Bad news Barret didn’t even get in the rr or his “surprise entrant” :)

    • Mike McCarthy

      He gave it away a week before.

  • Seth

    That platform still has less stability than TNA’s future.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Can I get some decorum please?

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Saxton welcomes us, he puts over the Tag Title match. He welcomes NAO.
    Road Dogg: Oh you didn’t know? No, what I mean is, I don’t know who you are.
    Saxton: “I’m Byron Saxton”
    Road Dogg: “You have a pretty smile, go fetch me a Kit-Kat”
    Road Dogg (cont.): “The Rhodes Brothers got a rematch so soon, maybe THEY’RE in with The Authority. Either way we’re going to do what we do best, tag-team wrestling. Where’s my Kit-Kat? Come back and plug our match…Oh Wait I Just did. Billy, you got two words for him?”
    Billy: “NEW CHAMPS”
    Road Dogg: …new champs

  • Taylor

    Am I the only one who thinks the Outlaws having the straps is a joke? All the young tag team talent and these two have the prime spot? I mean the Outlaws were cool and edgy when I was in the 8th grade in 1998

    • Xavier

      Nope, I agree with you. The Usos are far more deserving

      • Taylor

        Preach!

      • Carlos Aponte Jr

        I do agree the Usos are more deserving of the Tag Titles. Maybe they’ll have their moment to shine at Wrestlemania (might not be likely but we shall find out).

        Has thE Usos win the Tag Titles before?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Not yet.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I can agree, but NAO can easily put over a upcoming tag team and give them a huge rub.

    • Wrestling Historian

      Like I said earlier – Out with the new, In with the old… :(

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Yes you are, no offense.

      NAO is helping elevate the Authority angle. And it allow us to be nostalgic.

    • Bob’s Diner

      Totally agree. Billy Gunn looks almost as old as Hogan.
      What’s next? L.O.D 2015???

      • Taylor

        Dolph Zigler looks like Billy Gunn’s son

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Time for Barrett to Troll the crowd!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Me: I’M AFRAID I’VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS!
    Mom: Stop yelling at me….

  • Hayden Tyler

    i hope tonight is better than last night

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We all do, and so far WWE is delivering.

      • Hayden Tyler

        i missed the begining of the show so i just tuned in

    • packerpf

      it’s alright thus far, hopefully getting part of Elimination chamber card set tonight.

  • Nostaljack

    Barrett. Is. Awful.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Barrett is slowly growing on me, especially after he trolled throughout Miz’s match on Smackdown!

      • Nostaljack

        He was really annoying tonight. He isn’t always that bad but he hit a new low tonight.

        • thepowerserge

          Then I’ve got some BAD NEWS for you. He’s probably going to remain for a while.

  • K!NG

    Love barrett

  • Danny Philippi

    Imagine WCW battling this version of WWE. WCW would have had 100 weeks beating WWE.

    • Xavier

      Not realy b/c eventually Bischoff would of ran out of ideas. This WWE is still 100x better then WCW in 1999-2000

      • Nostaljack

        It wasn’t Bischoff’s fault. WCW’s fortunes turned after he was already gone. That could have been a blip on the screen otherwise.

        • Xavier

          I think Bischoff is too blame for a lot actually. He like Dixie knows very little about creating new stars.

          • Nostaljack

            Bischoff was hamstrung by a merger. He wasn’t perfect but he was beating the pants off WWE for 87 weeks. That wasn’t the work of someone who didn’t know what he was doing.

          • Xavier

            True but by the beginning of 99 it was all down hill. Outside of Goldberg who did Bischoff really help create. Bischoff has always been overrated too me. He was fortunate enough to have Ted Turner’s deep pockets to steal talent away or else he would of never even been a has been. He was also fortunate enough that the WWE was under investigation in the early 90s or else Hogan, Savage and all these other guys would of never jumped ship

          • Nostaljack

            Vince did the exact same thing. He stole everyone away from AWA and NWA. That’s how he built WWE.

          • Xavier

            But how many of those guys were stars/household names before they came to WWE?

          • Nostaljack

            You make a compelling argument. Vince took the raw material and made stars of them. Eric took people who were already stars…but he made ‘em even bigger.

          • Judas

            Hogan was a star before WWE. He was in AWA when Rocky 3 came out, and that’s what launched him. Vince just used him better than Verne.

          • Judas

            WCW also built DDP and Booker T. While Booker didn’t win the big title under Bischoff, Page did and rose to be a major wcw star.

          • Xavier

            I wouldn’t even really say Booker. I’ll give you DDP though

          • Judas

            He wasn’t over like DDP, and was really just WCW’s version of The Rock, but he was pretty over.

          • David Jr.

            WCW started there downard spiral before the merger. The merger is why they are no longer in business, but you can’t blame the merger for WCW starting to get bad. I think the start was Hogan vs. Sting match.

    • Dj Marvelouz

      lmao very true

  • David Jr.

    This video makes me realize how much I miss WCW.

  • Wrestling Historian

    If the WWE is using the more established guys to rub the younger guys for WM and beyond, then Vince is a genius. If he is using the Old Guard to get attention and sell WM – then he has made a BIG mistake.

    • Xavier

      That’s what drove WCW out of business under Bischoff, Bischoff relying on old talent that is

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Roman Reigns to continue his breakout push later in the year as face or heel?

    • Andrew

      face

    • packerpf

      neither, just a lone wolf bamf.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hopefully as a face. With his move set and intensity, he could be an excellent big man face.

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Definitely FACE.

  • packerpf

    I want barret in the ring, they got his visa worked out actually use him…

    • Stephen Cash

      He sucks in the ring….and on the mic….

      • packerpf

        hogwash he’s alright in the ring especially compared to lots who get ring time.

      • Nostaljack

        Negative. He’s great on the mic when he’s not stuck in a stupid gimmick. The stuff he did in Nexus was great.

    • Bob’s Diner

      He should have been #30 last night with some BAD NEWS for the crowd

  • Mike McCarthy

    MRS. FANDANGO!!!!!

  • Seth

    Everytime Fandango’s music hits I’m happy because I get to see Summer Rae.

  • Stephen Cash

    How come Rusev was in the rr and not Zayn?

    • Seth

      Considering you’d be repeating the same story with the former El Generico going that route that you did with Bo…it’s to do something different plus Rusev you can get over how much of a freak he is athleticly very quickly in a match like that.

    • packerpf

      Rusev has been on the road for a few months now, idk if Zayn is even on the road with them yet..

  • Danny Philippi

    I am so proud of my girl, Mrs. Newman, on her new reality TV program called Total Divas. It will be better than Kim and Khole and those people.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hey, didn’t you marry her last week?

      • Ashley

        Where has Mr Newman been lately?

      • Danny Philippi

        Yeah. The honeymoon was spectacular. She was the sunrise and I was the sunset.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE APP UPDATE: Saxton welcomes his guest Xavier Woods and R-Truth.
    Saxton: Rumble is in the rear view, all attention towards EC.
    Woods puts over his favorite Chamber matches and the WWE Network.
    R-Truth: Those were the ones I was in…
    Xavier makes a K-Kwik joke that falls flat.
    Truth tells Xavier about how intense and painful the Chamber is.
    BREAKING NEWS: R-Truth says he has to go because he has a match with Fandango next.

    • Nostaljack

      The K-Kwik thing was great. Truth hemmed and hawed and it was funny to me.

      • Mike McCarthy

        K-Kwik was before my time, I got the gist of it but it didn’t make much sense to me.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Who else here watches Suits on the USA Network? Great show.

    • Stephen Cash

      White Collar is better

      • David Jr.

        Psych’s the best.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Heard great things about White Collar, thinking about starting to watch it. No USA show compared to Burn Notice, it’s only been half a year but I already miss it.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Undertaker’s WM opponent; Daniel Bryan, John Cena or Brock Lesnar?

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      As a fan I’d go for Cena he’s Mr WWE and perfect candidate.

      Bryan deserves to have a title match.

      I’m not big on Lesnar.

  • Seth

    Xavier Woods has an awesome jacket.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Xavier Woods has an awesome afro.

      • Seth

        We’ve already known this. The jacket just stands out to me today. :P

  • Alex

    So after last night do you all think they’re going to keep Batista heel or try to keep him face despite how he acted after the PPV ended last night and the crowd reaction during the rumble for him winning?

    • Dj Marvelouz

      if he turns heel, he’s gonna have to face a baby face champ, meaning cena or maybe even daniel bryan will be champ by wrestlemania

      • Alex

        Yeah that’s what I’m thinking, so if they turn Batista heel then they couldn’t really have Orton retain if it’s going to be a one on one match at Wrestlemania.

        • Dj Marvelouz

          we’ll find out right now if batista comes out with orton in the ring

  • Mike McCarthy

    Emma is really really weird.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Anyone else notice that Emma keeps showing up whenever Summer Rae is out at the ring?

    • Ashley

      Yes and she dances too…

      • packerpf

        emma does the dance…of love. haha

  • packerpf

    can’t wait for sweet emma to get called up!

  • Dj Marvelouz

    i didnt watch the rumble but did they really show batista flipping off the crowd??

    • Mike McCarthy

      They did on the titantron for the live crowd, but the PPV had already ended.

      • Dj Marvelouz

        ooh ok got you, thanx

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Any former NXT star that you could bring back and onto the main roster? E.g. Kaval (Lo Ki), Derrick Bateman (EC3), Byron Saxton, Kassius Ohno (Chris Hero) etc…

    • Stephen Cash

      Kassius Ohno

    • packerpf

      Johnny Curtis and Eli Cottonwood, they dropped the ball on both

      • Jimmy

        Johnny Curtis over Fandango?

        • packerpf

          yep hate the fandango gimmick he was better as himself

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Johnny Curtis IS Fandango!

        • packerpf

          never! they are themselves, and he has embraced the debacle that is fandango.

        • Mike McCarthy

          The only thing Johnny Curtis did on the main roster was break away from R-Truth so he didn’t get his Tag Title match. He also poured a gallon of milk on his head….

          • packerpf

            they were setting him up well to tag with bateman..

      • Stephen Cash

        Johnny Curtis is FANDANGO!!!! and Eli Cottonwood sucked!!!

        • packerpf

          he was big and young and green. he needed help and they could have worked with him if they worked with ppl like khali, ryback, Curtis axel, etc…

    • Mike McCarthy

      OH YEAH! Percy Watson.

  • Nostaljack

    Goodnight, Mr. Dango!

  • Blaine

    “Wrestlemania XXX: 69 days way”…ofcourse that doesnt look perverted at all lol

  • Seth

    You know you’re a jobber if you lose to R-Truth at this point.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WHEN WILL JBL FORGET ABOUT DR. SHELBY!!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      NEVER!!!

      • Mike McCarthy

        IT WAS A WHILE AGO, IT WAS FUN BIT IT’S TIME TO LET GO!!!!

        • Mike McCarthy

          but**

  • Seth

    Looks like we get Randy coming up here next with both big gold belts. Heh

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Oh jeez… *prepares for the hate*

      • Seth

        I’m shielding myself from hate with my hat.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Tin foil doesn’t work! Take this canvas bag…

          • Seth

            Instead of saving Zelda…I’m saving Emma!

  • Danny Philippi

    You know how WWE gardens ratings: by having the Authority take the top of the hours.
    You know how WWE loses ratings: Randy Orton promos.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Curtis Axel; success or dud?

    • Stephen Cash

      dud

    • Nostaljack

      Dud. Completely and utterly.

    • packerpf

      job hunting by years end unless he falls into 3mb status.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Saxton plugs the main event. He transitions to Todd Phillips post-rumble interview with Sheamus. Sheamus talks about how he had time to reflect on all of his accomplishments in the previous 4 years and had time for it to sink in. But he wanted to come back. He wants his shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. He promises the last 4 years were just a drop in the bucket, he’s here to stay.

  • Jimmy

    Quicket: Corporate Kane; success or dud?

    • Judas

      In a non-wrestling role, I enjoy it. Him wrestling in dress slacks is a different matter though.

    500 before the top of the hour! Way to go guys!

  • Stephen Cash

    He is soooooo bad on the mic

  • Mike McCarthy

    Wait…..Brad Maddox?…..that’s still a thing?

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Most dominant trio of 2013; The Shield, Wyatt Family or 3MB?

    • Nostaljack

      3MB, BABY!!!!

    • Stephen Cash

      The SHIELD hands down

    • Cubed56

      3MB hands down, no contest.

    • Dj Marvelouz

      3MB duuuuh!!! lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We’re a 3 Man BAAAAAAANNNNDDDD!

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Without a doubt the Shield.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Los Matadores and El Torito……

  • packerpf

    if you had to make 2-3 tag teams using the main and nxt roster what teams are you getting?

  • Seth

    There was a sign I just saw that said #oh my balls. *Insert questionable content here*

    • Cubed56

      its a quote from great khali’s character in the longest yard

  • Xavier

    Let’s see how bad fans rattle Orton

  • David Jr.

    I don’t know how many people have read Chris Jericho’s 2nd autobiography, but in it, he mentioned how he hated having to carry around the 2 titles when he was Undisputed Champion. So I wonder if Orton feels the same way?

    • Dj Marvelouz

      cool fact to know

    • Xavier

      Probably. Those things are heavy

      • David Jr.

        Jericho didn’t hate them because they were heavy, he hated when he’d go through security at an airport, every security guard, would have to pose with them.

        • Mike McCarthy

          LOL that’s hilarious! But seriously, if you saw Randy Orton at the airport…would you even want a picture?

          • David Jr.

            If you were a security guard, you wouldn’t make Orton take out the titles, then have someone to take a picture of you holding both titles?

          • thepowerserge

            I’d rather pose with the first undisputed champion in 40 years himself, “Y2J” Chris Jericho. There’s a TRUE living legend.

  • Xavier

    Is Lesnar advertised too appear tonight?

  • Nostaljack

    There’s Nancy Jeans!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    VERY muted reaction to Batista.

  • Stephen Cash

    Crowd doesn’t even car about Batista… absolutely no reaction

    • packerpf

      not too huge of a pop last night either.

  • Dj Marvelouz

    looks like their not booing batista tonight

    • Dj Marvelouz

      take that back lol

  • Ashley

    Those jeans suck as well

  • Seth

    The crowd just went milder than my cold chips dip for Batista.

  • Judas

    “Batista Please leave”

  • Mike McCarthy

    Batista is definitely a tweener.

  • packerpf

    a lesnarless show is always 25% better show

    • packerpf

      well there you guys go now..now the show is 25% worse..

  • Stephen Cash

    Is he a heel now or a face? tweener?

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

    LOL the crowd is going to dump on them

  • Xavier

    Batista displaying his great Iron Sheik skills lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the fans are already calling for Daniel Bryan! Crap on this segment, and Batista’s awful promo!

  • Danny Philippi

    Guess the crowd is trying to get back its show.

  • Nostaljack

    He’s not doing so well here.

    • Mike McCarthy

      agreed

  • Seth

    THANK YOU BROCK!

  • Stephen Cash

    Was Batista always this awful on the mic?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep!

    • Nostaljack

      He wasn’t great…but this was something else.

  • Dj Marvelouz

    Lesnar in the houseeee!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    …This just got interesting…

  • Xavier

    LESNAR! Glad you were able too join us

  • Nostaljack

    I never thought I’d be glad to see Brock.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I never thought I’d say this but HAIL LESNAR!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    Paul Heyman, take the mic and go. Brock should not speak like his name is Jane.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’s Nancy!

  • Dj Marvelouz

    LESNAR VS BATISTA…. now that might interest me

    • Judas

      I wouldn’t mind a Lesnar vs. Orton match, but Lesnar vs. Batista just sounds unappealing.

      • Dj Marvelouz

        that would be 2 heels tho… theres no way they would do that

        • Judas

          It wouldn’t take much at all to turn Brock into a tweener/face role for that match. Plus, I’d argue that Lesnar vs. Batista would be two heels.

  • Taylor

    #brocksaves

  • Seth

    I demand Brock beat the crap out of both men. I’d enjoy it.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      As do I!

    • monty

      i 2nd this

  • monty

    are we seeing main event triple threat at WM30 preview in the ring?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Possibly!

  • K!NG

    Crowd stopped there chant when he said he didn’t care if it was daniel bryan lol

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: A mid-card talent you would bring back. E.g. John Morrison, Shelton Benjamin, MVP, Matt Hardy, Chris Masters etc…

    • Stephen Cash

      JoMo!!!!!!!

    • Nostaljack

      None.

    • Andrew

      jomo shelton

      • Mike McCarthy

        They should sign Shelton Benjamin for one-night deals every year only to work MITB. He made those matches amazing.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Amen!

    • Mike McCarthy

      JOHN F’N MORRISON

    • Xavier

      MVP

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Charlie Haas!

    • Seth

      Rob Conway just for his ridiculous song.

      • David Jr.

        Just look at me.

    • Judas

      They have a good roster all around right now, they just need to use it.

  • packerpf

    brock lesnar killing audiences world wide..

  • David Jr.

    Lesnar vs. Orton tonight? I thought Paul Heyman’s clients didn’t work for free?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Batista vs. Lesnar? PLEASE!!!

  • Tim

    Please someone set up lesnar vs orton in a mma fight

    • Mike McCarthy

      Lesnar wins by TKO 1 minute and 12 seconds into the first round.

      • Cubed56

        not if orton kicks him in the stomach

        • Mike McCarthy

          I’m talking Lesnar in his prime. Lesnar will never fight again. He might be able to, but it’s a bad idea.

          • Cubed56

            i know i was just messing around

    • Jesse Sherwood

      So Lesnar can curl up like a girl again? No thanks!

      • Judas

        To be fair, he turtled against Cain Velasquez. aka The current baddest man on the planet.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          He did it to Overeem as well.

          • Judas

            Yeah I was just typing a response to add that. Look at those two though. Both after his diverticulitis, and both against world class guys. Overeem was still a beast at that point. He may have a weaker chin these days, but he still hits hard.

      • Tim

        Yea cause orton is on cains level right. I mean he cries when he got slammed by mr Kennedy. He could be a nfl player considering how much of a ballerina he is.

  • monty

    Lesnar needs to kick some ass

    give him the damn title

  • Stephen Cash

    I would love to see a title match on Raw… makes the title mean more. And Lesnar vs orton would be AWESOME!!!!!

  • Carlos Aponte Jr

    Wow I’m enjoying tonight’s Raw. Lesnar Batista & RKO in the same ring. Awesome!

  • Danny Philippi

    Heyman has put the Authority on notice and Brad Maddox in no man’s land.

  • Seth

    At least Batista didn’t talk anymore.

  • Stephen Cash

    Even though I like Lesnar is bugs me that 2 out of the 3 people in the title picture are part timers

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wow, 100 comments in less than 10 minutes! You guys are rocking it!

    • Seth

      What can I say…it was fun to make fun of the fact that Batista not only didn’t get a good reaction but flubbed a damn incoherent promo!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        We are well on the way to a record, maybe even 1500 tonight!

        • Seth

          History is good!

        • Ashley

          What is the record?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            1284!

        • Stephen Cash

          You sir, better be knocking on wood

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I am, as I have been hoping for us to hit that mark by the night after WM!

    • David Jr.

      What is the fastest you’ve ever hit 1000 comments, cause we could hit it at 10.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Typically it takes to 10:30-10:40

  • Cubed56

    so they are switching zigglers billing from Hollywood florida to his native Cleveland, i like it

  • ldb

    Beasts, Animals, and Vipers …Oh MY

    • Nostaljack

      Oh, Kendra?

    • Seth

      It’s still the WWF to me thanks to that!

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Saxton puts over the last segment, welcomes us to the App. Welcomes The Miz.
    Miz: Do you have any idea how excited I am? My friends, my family, I was flipping burgers down the street. He went to high school here
    Ziggler interrupts.
    Ziggler: I’m from Hollywoof Florida, but I grew up here. I think I have the edge tonight.
    Miz: Really?
    Ziggler goes on to say that they’re going to tear the house down tonight
    Miz tells Ziggler to go wash his hair and that he’s AWESOME!

    NEXT MATCH: The Battle of Cleveland The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler.

  • Danny Philippi

    Brock Lesnar can use the Viper as a jumping rope and Batista as a medicine ball.

  • Scooter

    I like the tweener vibe I got from Lesnar and Heyman. Could they slightly be going face?

    • Xavier

      I hope not. Lesnar was always pretty bad as a face. And I don’t think anyone would buy Heyman as a face right now

  • Cubed56

    a little sexual connotation from ziggler, lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    Miz turns heel tonight?

    • Xavier

      Hope so. Miz as a heel could still be a top guy, as a face he’s a midcarder

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Miz has been treading the lines for a while. But I see Miz going into a feud with Barrett.

  • Xavier

    Let’s see who’s more over in their hometown

  • Mike McCarthy

    How amazing would it be if Miz took off the jersey and was wearing a Lebron jersey? The fans might storm the ring. That would be epic.

    • Stephen Cash

      They love LeBron now….he might come home….

      • Mike McCarthy

        I’ll believe it when I see it.

    • Mike McCarthy

      damn….

  • Stephen Cash

    I really want Ziggles to start using the superkick

  • Danny Philippi

    Miz v. Ziggler. The Mid-Card Mafia hits again.

  • Mike McCarthy

    JBL: Does the winner get Cleveland?

  • Seth

    ‘The winner gets to leave Cleveland’—HA!

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

    FInally got home.

  • Seth

    For the record JBL…it’s even worse being a Redskins fan in terms of drama and B.S. than it is being a Browns fan.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I’m a mini-browns fan, my teams are the Niners and Eagles but I try to root for an AFC team. Firing Chud was just a completely boneheaded move. He turned Gordon into a star.

    • David Jr.

      Redskins have won Super Bowls, Browns have never been to one and even had there team taken from them and go win 2 Super Bowls in the city they moved, too. The only fans who could have it worse than then Brown fans are Lion fans.

      • Seth

        None were in my lifetime unfortunately. I can’t point to lore if I never was alive for it. I’m alive for one of the worst periods in my team’s history.

        • David Jr.

          I’m a Lions fan, I’ve seen in this century alone, one playoff team, the 2 longest road losing streaks in NFL history, a 6-3 team this year finish with a losing record when there 2 biggest rivals lose their starting QBs and oh yeah an 0-16 season.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Maineventer you would bring back. E.g. Goldberg, Bobby Lashley, JBL, Mr. Kennedy, Booker T, Jeff Hardy etc….

    • Stephen Cash

      Mr.!!!!!!!! Kennedy!!!!!!!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        KENNEDY!!!!

        • Stephen Cash

          YES!!!! I was really hoping someone would finish it if I left it open!!!

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Jeff Hardy I miss thugs. And no I do not watch TNA

    • Mike McCarthy

      (Justin Roberts voice) JEEEEEEEEEEEEEFF HAAAAAARRDY!!!!!

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

    I’m forseeing for some reason a WM X ending for WM XXX this year.

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      What do you mean? Bret was the biggest face at he time and he won the Championship. Thinking the same with Bryan?

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

        YES! I’m thinking who ever wins the title match cuts a promo saying they could be anyone and challenges anyone to a match and Bryan answers, wins, and the locker room empties raising him on their shoulders as he celebrates as the new Champion.

  • Danny Philippi

    “CLEVELAND ROCKS” chant.

  • Xavier

    Oh wow, is that a Ziggler sucks chant

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Steelers Sucks

      • Xavier

        Lol oh okay

      • Seth

        Steelers DO suck. :P

        • Mike McCarthy

          They would’ve made the playoffs if it weren’t for the crapy refs. (Not a Steelers fan, just have a very large hatred for the NFL officials)

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the crowd is disinterested!

    • Mike McCarthy

      The crowd is just pissed that someone in a steelers hat is in one of the first couple rows.

  • Seth

    I never want to see Miz do a figure four ever again…

    • Mike McCarthy

      Ironic since almost every wrestling fan in the world wanted Ziggler to be paired with Flair.

      • Bob’s Diner

        Every? I didn’t

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Should i continue these quickbets?

  • Mdy

    These two miz and dolph need to tag together

    • Stephen Cash

      False

    • Jimmy

      Ziggler already has enough things holding him back, the last thing he needs is having to carry the Miz

  • Qbraggio

    Did it sound like they was chanting ziggler suck or nah?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Steelers suck…

      • Qbraggio

        Just wondering lol

      • Tim

        Cleveland sucks. Is what ithought

  • Danny Philippi

    Hope Ziggler didn’t hurt his knee. His finisher is a bit reckless.

    • Seth

      Nah, it’s selling that figure four.

  • Xavier

    I think tonight is where we get tension between the brotherhood

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I think last night is where that started. Goldy got his revenge!

    • Stephen Cash

      I just really hope its Goldust who turns heel

      • Xavier

        I disagree, I think Cody should be the one to turn heel

        • Stephen Cash

          WWE already tried it with him and it didnt work. Goldust is more over than he is so it will help elevate Cody more as a babyface, and be more shocking if goldust turns

          • Xavier

            I don’t it would be believable if Goldust turned at this point

          • Stephen Cash

            You don’t know how talented Dustin is then

          • Xavier

            Actually I do

          • Stephen Cash

            Then how do you think he wouldnt be able to get heat

          • Seth

            I just think at this point in the game…while both can play either role…Cody just has another gear as a character as a bad guy.

  • Cubed56

    john cena a hustler? lol

    • Qbraggio

      That wweshop.com commercial was better than the last few!

      • Cubed56

        that is true

    • Danny Philippi

      Yeah he is. He goes around the neighborhood in the mornings to the kids breakfast nukes and takes the marshmallows out of the Lucky Charms. Oh wait, that’s Sheamus.

      • Cubed56

        lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Saxtons welcomes us, recaps the match. Ziggler’s the king of Cleveland.
    Saxton says they’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at the new movie “RoboCop”
    This is exciting because my fingers get a pass for this commercial break, I can go make a milkshake now!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      *Cheap Plug by the App*

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rybaxel vs. Usos? Time to see if WWE has any faith in the Usos.

    • Stephen Cash

      They’ll win

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      I hope so.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Most underrated superstar. E.g. Christian, Cesaro etc….

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Zack Ryder!

    • Andrew

      christian for me

    • Seth

      Tyson Kidd.

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

      Ricardo Rodriguez

  • Seth

    I won’t lie. I smiled when Ryback got the jobber entrance.

    • Nostaljack

      As it should be…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Same here!

  • Danny Philippi

    Goldberg chants waning. Hope Rybore doesn’t sniff WM XXX.

  • Andrew

    no doubt usos are my favorite tag team!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    Cole and Lawler pumping up Axel’s abilities? LOL

    • Seth

      Mechanically he’s talented. Just he has less charisma than a wet paper bag.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I wish they’d just start burying Ryback and Axel hard on commentary.

      • Seth

        Poor Curtis. Can we just double bury Ryback like you could bury 5000 people? I’d settle for that!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I’ll settle for that.

          • Seth

            Besides, I think poor Curtis has to do all the jobs in the tag matches that involve the team of Curtis and Ryjackass and Ryjackass gets most of the wins when they do go over. I think that’s more than punishment enough for the guy!

          • Seth

            As I say that, they finally put Ryback under of the two. I approve! I should whine about this more often!

  • Danny Philippi

    Quickbet: Harder fall from grace since WM XXIX: Ryback or Swagger?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ryback, as he had the tools and was over. Swagger screwed himself.

    • K!NG

      Ziggler

    • Mike McCarthy

      Swagger because Ryback was already halfway through a year long PPV losing streak.

    • Jimmy

      The harder “fall” was Ryback due to him being higher than Swagger and falling to the same level. Swagger didn’t reach all that high.

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

        Oh He got “High” LOL

  • Qbraggio

    The Usos are the daniel byran of tag teams…why arent they tag champs yet?

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

      The Brotherhood is why.

      • Qbraggio

        Yea sure The Brotherhooda good tag team but wait weren’t the Usos a tag team before the Brotherhood got put together, Usos been over, they as in WWE are holding them back just like Daniel Bryan

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

          It was the sudden wave of popularity the Rhodes got that got them the titles when The Usos were primed to win the titles. Because they won the titles the Usos had to wait their turn while the Rhodes were Faces.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because they are waiting to give them a huge rub ie: Winning over NAO at WM30.

      • Qbraggio

        I’ll believe it when I see it

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’m back with my Root Beer Float!!!!! What’d I miss?

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

    The Usos are 9-0 this year

    • Danny Philippi

      Usos vs. Undertaker WM XXX. Streak vs. Streak handicap match.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Who was more popular, CM Punk in his prime (2011) or Daniel Bryan currently?

    • Andrew

      daniel bryan

    • Stephen Cash

      Easily Daniel Bryan!!!! Most popular star ever possibly

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

      No Contest it’s Daniel Bryan. No One has been this over since Austin.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I still go as far as Hogan in Hulkamania’s prime.

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

          Legit argument for that can be mad too. It’s epic level overness that’s for sure.

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Daniel Bryan. Without a doubt b

  • Ashley

    Hopefully the Usos will win the belts at EC

    • Xavier

      Amen!

    • Seth

      Save it for Mania…good little 5-6 minute match and the Usos go over strong on the biggest show. It’d mean the world for’m both.

      • Xavier

        And then celebrate with Rikishi in the front row. That would be a nice Mania moment for them

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

      I think the moment would be better and more special to do it at WM 30.

      • Ashley

        That is good too!

  • Xavier

    The Usos are the team that NAO should put over

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Agreed 100%. It’s Usos’ time. WWE has been pushing them in recent weeks.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Well, if the IWC starts up enough chit-chat for The Usos then Vince McMahon will definitely give the rub to Los Matadores!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Please, NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

      • Bob’s Diner

        If that means a rub for El Torito, I’m all for it!

        • thepowerserge

          El Torito being in the Royal Rumble was the stupidest thing in recent history as well as a waste of a spot. Nash being in it was just one more sign of the power of nepotism in today’s WWE. Thanks a lot, Trip.

  • Seth

    Usos are continued to be booked strong on TV. I like this. I also think they’re not bad on the microphone when they were given chances on the mic. More chances for’m the better.

  • Nostaljack

    And with this, Vladimir Kozlov’s former position has just been filled

    • Xavier

      He was terrible

    • Mike McCarthy

      Him and Santino were the best PG-friendly tag team of all time

  • Xavier

    Can’t wait too hear who the next inductee will be. Any guesses?

    • Andrew

      paul bearer

      • Xavier

        He’s a given. Guess that makes sense

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Better be!

        • Xavier

          What about Slick or Brother Love. Remember Love was the 1st true manager of Taker lol

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yes, but Bearer was brought in specifically because he and Taker had a working relationship from WCCW.

          • Xavier

            Very true

          • Mike McCarthy

            I thought Slick was already in?

    • Bob’s Diner

      Brutus Beefcake

  • Mike McCarthy

    The next inductee better be Paul Bearer or me and Kendra are gonna lose it!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m hoping so too. He more than deserves it.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Next Inductee ideas?

    • Ashley

      Chyna! lol

      • Mike McCarthy

        That will NEVER happen. No hate for Chyna but there’s no chance.

        • Ashley

          Oh I know. I was a huge fan of her back in the day too but poor decisions on her part have made that next to nil.

    • Nostaljack

      Jumpin’ Jeff Farmer!!

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Randy Savage.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He’d be the only other one I’d want to see other than Bearer. But he deserves to headline a class, not be an afterthought to Warrior.

        • Xavier

          WWE blew a opportunity too have a WCW themed Hall Of Fame at WM27 when they were in Georgia

      • Mike McCarthy

        Savage is a headliner, he’ll be next years #1 unless Undertaker retires.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Taker will be in 2018 HOF. I still hold that Taker will retire 25-0.

    • Bob’s Diner

      Jeff Jarrett ;-)

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Only if Jerry goes in for running CWA/USWA!

  • David Jr.

    I’m hoping it’s the late great Macho Man Randy Savage.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Best wrestler on mic? CM Punk, Y2J, The Rock etc…

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

      Hogan in his prime.

    • Seth

      In his prime…nobody had me better than Jake Roberts did.

    • Xavier

      Flair in his prime blows all of them out of the water

      • Tim

        I don’t watch much pre 93 wrestling. But did he still just scream the entire time.

  • Stephen Cash

    I hope its Owen Hart, but my guess is Paul Bearer or Jake the Snake…. both very derserving

  • ldb

    I wish King Kong Bundy was the next inductee. Bundy 3:16 says I just broke your ribs. He s great on the mic. Love to hear him on announce before wrestlemania. Too bad Gorilla died. He could induct the walking condominium.

    • Xavier

      I wonder what that guy has been up too. Throw the Buchwhakers in there as well, where the hell have they been

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Saxton welcomes Kofi Kingston. He puts over his work at the Rumble.
    Kofi: The crowd was electric and everybody was talking about his leap but all he wanted was to win it.
    Saxton points out that attention has shifted to EC and Kofi has been in the match before.
    Kofi makes a mistake by saying that after tonight there will be three more spots left.
    Saxton points out that his attention right now is on Alberto Del Rio.
    Kingston agrees, his goal is to keep the momentum going and he plans to do that tonight.
    BREAKING NEWS: Kofi Kingston will face Alberto Del Rio tonight.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Suits commercial!!!!

  • Alex Gallardo

    You guys sure have been commenting like crazy since I’ve left. Hopefully you guys can break the record tonight, WNW deserves it.

    • Xavier

      You gonna stick around and help us break it?

      • Alex Gallardo

        Maybe.

        • Xavier

          Boooooooooooo

        • Mike McCarthy

          you knooooow you want to.

      • Tim

        Down?

  • Seth

    Whenever I see Kofi’s leap…all I want to shout is ‘Leap of FAIIIIIIIIIIITH!’

  • Xavier

    How would you guys feel about Teddy Long going into the HOF one day?

    • Bob’s Diner

      I’m fine with it – he has been around a loooooooong time

  • Danny Philippi

    Kofi Kingston is Shelton Benjamin with corn rows.

    • Xavier

      He’s ring work reminds me more of Morrison

      • Stephen Cash

        JoMo was WAY better

        • Xavier

          Nah not really, they’re both spot monkeys

          • Stephen Cash

            JoMo had tons of potential, and was good. I saw a future HBK in him

          • Xavier

            He didn’t have a 4th of HBK’s charmisa or ring awareness. And don’t even get me started on the mic work

          • Stephen Cash

            He had a lot of Charisma… Ill give you ring awareness, but he can grow and get better. I wish he was back

          • Stephen Cash

            JoMo was way better at rr spots than Kofi… Kofi is the replacement

          • Tim

            John morrisons royal rumble spot was better. IMO

          • Xavier

            Agreed. But as workers they are both very similar

  • Andrew

    wow that was pretty amazing what kofi did.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Best star to never be World Champion?

    • Stephen Cash

      JoMo

    • Mike McCarthy

    • Ashley

      Road Dogg!

      • David F.

        you kidding me Owen Hart! Enough is Enough and Owen should have been champ

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here goes the crowd…

    • Nostaljack

      Dag! It’s like it’s the Divas or something.

  • Xavier

    Del Rio/Kofi 100000000000000000000000

  • Stephen Cash

    Why can’t JoMo come back to the WWE… I mis him, especially in the rumble

  • K!NG

    Lash leroux will be inducted lol

  • Tim

    The joker kofi is pretty awesome.

  • Danny Philippi

    This matchup has been seen more than bug v. windshield.

  • Seth

    The dive at least popped the crowd slightly.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Prime Time Players or Cryme Tyme?

    • Mike McCarthy

      YO YO YO

    • Xavier

      Cryme Tyme. Wish they would of done more with them

      • David F.

        loved cryme tyme and regal segment. Regal’s face was priceless

  • Mike McCarthy

    For the first time in years, I think Kofi has a chance of going over. Unless they’re doing Batista vs. ADR at EC.

  • Seth

    Here come the JBL chants.

    • Seth

      and made even better with the pose!

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

    ADR and Orton get these kind of crowds a lot.

    • Stephen Cash

      I think it is more of seeing the same match over and over

  • Mike McCarthy

    Do you guys think ADR was truly mad or was it an angle?

    • Xavier

      Angle probably

      • Nostaljack

        Xavier’s getting worked.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        ADR vs. JBL for the battle of the rich gimmicks? Yes, if ADR lasts only 17 seconds!

        • David Jr.

          The match ends when the Million Dollar Man comes out and takes them both out, hence making him the greatest rich gimmick in wrestling history.

      • David Jr.

        Kurt or Eric?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ADR just pulled an Orton!

  • Nostaljack

    Alberto Del Midcard can’t get anyone into his matches. Kofi deserves better though.

    • Xavier

      These crowd reactions are getting old and predictable

      • Seth

        Not QUITE as old and predictable as some of the match choices sir. That’s why they do it.

        • Xavier

          Still, these types of crowd reactions are no longer oringinal. Those fans have become what they’ve mocked

      • Ashley

        agree. If it happened once in awhile, that would be one thing. But almost every week is old. Like the old saying “everything in moderation.”

        • Xavier

          Exactly, and these are the same people who complain about everything else being predictable, but here they are being just as predictable.

      • Judas

        They are getting old and predictable because they happen in EVERY city. I’d say that is telling of a bigger problem.

      • Mike McCarthy

        It’s just Cleveland trying to make people think that it’s actually fun living there.

    • Mike McCarthy

      ADR was a very underrated baby face, he was really over with the crowd.

      • Cubed56

        no he wasn’t, his intro by ricardo was over not him

        • Judas

          And the fans getting to chant “Si” instead of “Yes”

        • Mike McCarthy

          He was over because of Ricardo once his program with Swagger started. His face work with Big Show had him really over. (But you can’t forget the kick on the invisible man.)

          • Cubed56

            lol fair enough

      • Nostaljack

        If you mean we wanted his ring time to be over, I’d agree.

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

        The only reason he was over was Ricardo Rodriguez.

    • Xavier

      Alberto Del Midcard is a several time world champion ;-)

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And undeservingly so.

  • Danny Philippi

    Great. A commercial break to cool the crowd off. That ain’t happening tonight. Sorry.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Biggest botcher?

    • Stephen Cash

      Rybotch

      • Jimmy

        What about the original Botch Cara

        • Bob’s Diner

          Not all of that was his fault

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

      Ahmed Johnson

      • Xavier

        Mr. Kennedy

        • Mike McCarthy

          I’m sure that would be Orton’s pick too.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I wouldn’t call him the biggest botcher but I feel the need to point out Kane has had some bad ones over the years.

      • Stephen Cash

        That HHH pedigree?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Kofi, although he has improved over the years.

    • Seth

      When I see the word botch or botcher I just think of this line: …nevermind that shit. Here comes Mongo!

    • Danny Philippi

      Sid Vicious, both in and out of the ring.

      • David Jr.

        You may be half the man I am, but I have half the brain you do.

  • Tim

    Quick question did eliminating cm punk give Kane another elimination or no

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Cole puts over the hype crowd. ADR throws Kingston into the steel steps. ADR back in the ring, he’s on the top rope taunting the crowd. Cole AGAIN puts over the amount of download the App has. Kingston back in and ADR right back with the frenzy of kicks to Kofi. ADR to the top rope but Kofi moves out of the way, the crowd starts a chant but I can’t make it out because of my phones bad audio. We head back to USA. Kingston was on the top rope and about to perform a move but they cut the feed before he did it. (Something else to watch out for for the WWE Network)

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Titus O’Neil deserving of a singles push in the future? Yay or Nay?

    • Xavier

      YES!

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

      Yes to see what is possible.

    • Ashley

      Yes, he has potential!!

  • Stephen Cash

    This is actually a decent match….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Why in the world did Kofi not do the smart thing and hook both legs?!

    • Nostaljack

      It wasn’t in the script, silly…LOL!

    • Stephen Cash

      Right? Right?!

  • Xavier

    This match has actually been decent. Atleast this isn’t some quick 2min squash like their prior meetings

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ADR just showed more emotion in that outburst than he has in the entire 4 years of his WWE career!

    • Stephen Cash

      He has been pretty good in this match! and I really don’t like him

      • Xavier

        Del Rio is actually a pretty good worker. He just doesn’t connect with fans though

        • Jesse Sherwood

          He’s an 80′s heel in the wrong era.

          • Xavier

            You hit it on the head. When they fist starting airing vignettes of him in 2010 he reminded me a lot of a Rick Rude or a Rick Martel type heel

        • Mike McCarthy

          He has the same problem Axel had, he seems like he’s trying to follow a script. He definitely wasn’t as bad as Axel, just similar problems.

    • Seth

      He’d certainly be more entertaining if he could channel that.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Idk, he seemed pretty upset when he ran over Santa Clause.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: NWO or the Shield?

    • Stephen Cash

      SHIELD

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Original NWO w/ Hogan Nash & Hall

  • Xavier

    That was a interesting spot there by Del Rio

  • Mike McCarthy

    Though I’ve soured on ADR vs. Kofi XXXX, this has definitely been better compared to past matches.

    • David Jr.

      It would be XL not XXXX.

      • Mike McCarthy

        How high I can count in Roman numerals is limited to how many WrestleManias there’s been.

        • David Jr.

          I’m from Detroit and Super Bowl XL was here, so that’s why I know it.

          • Mike McCarthy

            LOL, seriously it’s really the only way they’re used nowadays.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That was a nasty landing. Kofi may be seriously hurt.

    • Stephen Cash

      I was thinking the same

    • Stephen Cash

      Definitely thinking concussion

    • Seth

      That hurt.

    • Nostaljack

      Yeah, didn’t look good.

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

    We are breaking the record tonight.

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Who deserved to be the first black WWE Champion?

    • David Jr.

      I’m gonna say the Rock.

    • Nostaljack

      Rocky King

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The same man who was the first black world champion: Ron Simmons

    • Cubed56

      i always thought Ron Simmons

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

      Who deserved it? The Godfather

  • Nostaljack

    Rick Rude looked like a lady with a mustache…LOL!

  • Tim

    Wwe 2k14 is good but it’s not the hottest game. It was destroyed by gta v

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

    Brock faces Daniel Bryan.

    • Xavier

      That’s the title match I was hoping for at Mania

  • Stephen Cash

    If he faces Orton is it for the title?

  • Mike McCarthy

    When was the last time Brock wrestled on Raw?

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Before he left WWE I think. Back in 2002.

  • Stephen Cash

    I’m going for Orton vs Lesnar. Storyline is that the authority is souring on Orton and want to replace him with Batista… so they protect Batista

  • Andrew

    orton vs lesnar

  • Seth

    At the very least…I think the general mood is at least far less tense today than it was at the Rumble so I count that as a positive.

    • Xavier

      Agreed. That opening segment did a lot to kind with that as well. WWE is better off atleast acknowledging the chants then trying to work thru them.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed. It’s been a fun night to say the least! WWE riled the fans up, and it is only helping us!

    • Ashley

      While I was super upset by how things went down last night, never would use that as a reason to be crappy to others!

  • Danny Philippi

    This NFL show on USA looks good.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: He recaps the last match. Then welcomes Natalya.

    How are you Natalya?

    Good, thank you for having me?

    I understand you have some pretty big news.

    She goes on to show that she’s featured in Flex Magazine

    He asks how she’s handling her fame.

    She says she’s so grateful and appreciative, she thinks if it weren’t for Total Divas she wouldn’t be able to do the magazine. She’s also excited to be a part of Season 2 of Total Divas.

    Saxton says on behalf of the WWE he’s proud of her.

    She thanks him

    BREAKING NEWS: There will be an 8-Diva tag match tonight on Raw.

    • Ashley

      8? Why can’t they just do a normal 2 on 2?!?!

      • Justin Mayo

        because that would actualy make sense?

      • Mike McCarthy

        Because they know how much I hate Aksana, I have a feeling that someone in WWE is stalking me and are pushing Aksana just to irritate me.

        • Ashley

          She is irritating!!!

          • Mike McCarthy

            I could talk all night about how much I hate Aksana.

        • Justin Mayo

          hey, if i can’t piss you off, life’s no fun! besides, i told her to send you a message

          • Mike McCarthy

            DAAAAAAAMN YOOOOOOOOOU!!!!!!

          • Justin Mayo

            i’ll give you a hint- she wins in dominant style :-P

  • Justin Mayo

    -surprises WNW when music hits, runs in, and Spears Jesse and David at the same time-

    • Jesse Sherwood

      *Dodges spear and punts Mayo*
      Good to see you dude!

      • Justin Mayo

        -catches foot and locks in ankle lock- you too bro

        • Seth

          *Runs in and spears Mayo and gets booed for ruining the match*

          • Justin Mayo

            -gets up and chokeslams Seth on Jesse’s newly injured ankle-

          • Seth

            *Flops around in pain*

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *No sells the pain and goes on a Lesnar tirade with chairs.*

          • Seth

            *Takes a chair shot to the head, stumbles back into the ropes and staggers forward before flair flopping*

    • David Jr.

      Sells it like the Ultimate Warrior being pedigreed.

      • Justin Mayo

        -points and laughs-

        • David Jr.

          “I was sent in a capsule from a place long from here and I came here for one reason: to attack and keep coming. Not to ask but just to give. Not to want but just to send… send the power of the David down everybody’s throat in the WNW till they become sick of it. Well you’re gonna get sick of it because this freak of nature right here is just beginning to swell. And when I get big enough, brother, there ain’t gonna be room for anybody else but me and all the Davids floating through the veins, and the power of the David.”

          “‘How must I prepare?’ You must ask yourself! ‘Should I jump off the tallest building in the world? Should I lay on the lawn and let ‘em run over me with lawnmowers? Should I go to Africa and let ‘em trample me with raging elephants?’”

          “Load the spaceship with the rocket fuel, load it with the words…”

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Gibbs slaps Mayo*

          • Justin Mayo

            “Well let me tell you something, brother. When you walk through that curtain, I want you to look around. You see that crowd? Well, when you’re in the ring, brother, you’ll find yourself surrounded by thousands upon thousands of Mayomaniacs, and brother, they’ll tell you the same thing I’ll tell you now- Mayomania will live forever, brother. You might knock me down, and I’ll get right back up. I’ll keep getting up because of all the vitamins I’ve eaten and the prayers I’ve said. Time in and time out, I’ll be getting up, so if you want to keep me down, be ready for the fight of your life. Whatcha gonna,do, brother, when Mayomania runs wild on YOU?”

          • David Jr.

            As you, JUSTIN MAYO, travel to Raw Open Thread … tear down the cock-pit door, JUSTIN MAYO… take the two pilots that have already made the sacrifice … assume the controls, JUSTIN MAYO… shove that control into a nose-dive, JUSTIN MAYO… and you will soon be close to parts unknown!

          • Justin Mayo

            Well…Ultimate David…Hulk Mayo’s already in the HoF…i got a shiny ring- do you? :-P

          • David Jr.

            The Ultimate David will soon get his ring and he won’t give it to a lawyer. SNORTS.

          • Justin Mayo

            you’re following in my shadow just like you did 20-30 years ago!

  • Seth

    I seriously think that lower, slower little tone to Goldust music if they turn him heel by itself would sound so damn creepy that it’d be awesome for him.

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

    It does my heart well to see champions wear their titles.

    • Justin Mayo

      it does my heart well to have a good burger…but i see what ya mean, nobody wears them anymore

  • Seth

    I could listen to Road Dogg talk all day.

    • Judas

      He’d be a good color commentator.

  • Xavier

    Road Dogg clearly carried NAO on the mic

    • Stephen Cash

      And Gunn carried them in the ring

      • Mike McCarthy

        Agreed, I think that’s how all tag teams should be formed.

        • Seth

          They filled a need the other didn’t have on their own but it was greatly aided by the fact that they just had chemistry. Sometimes teams have it, sometimes they don’t…but you gotta see who has chemistry before you can really run with’m as a team.

          • thepowerserge

            Agreed. Roadie was the mouthpiece of the tag team, while Rockabilly was the workhorse. Not saying Dog was no good, since he more than covered his half of getting the team off the ground. Yet each guy, in their own right, had a certain amount of singles success as well. Regardless, great to see the NAO together again and once again as TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS OF THE WOOOOORRRRRLLLLLDDDDD!!!!!

      • Xavier

        Agreed.

      • David Jr.

        I think Road Dogg’s in ring work is underrated, Billy Gunn wasn’t leaps and bound better than him.

  • Mike McCarthy

    IN THE IMMORTAL WORDS OF SELENA GOMEZ

  • Jesse Sherwood

    They are supposed to be heels, and the crowd still eats them up!

    • Xavier

      They haven’t really officially turned though, outisde of walking out on Punk they haven’t really done anything heelish

    • Mike McCarthy

      Batista isn’t even the best twiner in the company right now……

      • Mike McCarthy

        tweener** autocorrect

  • Danny Philippi

    Road Dogg can teach two-thirds of the WWE locker room how to do a promo because they need it.

    • Stephen Cash

      cough…Batista…cough

      • Jesse Sherwood

        ADR!

    • David Jr.

      He can teach him, but not his voice, Which Road Dogg has one of the best voices in WWE history.

  • Taylor

    Road dogg already gassed

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Best wrestler in the world? E.g. Bret Hart, Kurt Angle, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Austin Aries etc….

    • Alex Gallardo

      Hulk Hogan.

      • Stephen Cash

        Joke? good performer… awful wrestler

        • Alex Gallardo

          I consider, being a wrestler and performer the same thing really. There’s much more to being a good wrestler than just being good technically.

          • Xavier

            Exactly

      • Xavier

        Flair

    • Stephen Cash

      Want to say Angle…. but Im going DB

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

      Today. It would be Daniel Bryan.
      Of All time Either Kurt Angle or Bret Hart

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Pure technical ability?

      • Jimmy

        Technically ring based ability, not entertainment bases just wrestling

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Then I will be neg’d severely, but Chris Benoit.

      • Alex Gallardo

        That’s what I was confused about.

    • Justin Mayo

      I wanna say HBK

    • Mike McCarthy

      John Morrison, My list of top in-ring workers is
      1. Bryan
      2. JoMo
      3. Angle
      4. Hardy

      • Mike McCarthy

        The only thing Morrison has that Bryan doesn’t is the look.

    • Alex Gallardo

      To answer your question again since it’s about their in ring talent, I would have to go with Kurt Angle.

      • Jimmy

        The next quickbet will be what you answered to the first time.

    • mark

      Kurt angle vs Daniel Bryan would be match of the decade

  • Justin Mayo

    what’s the record for Raw so far?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      1284

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

        I think that’s going to get crushed

      • Xavier

        We will destroy that record

        • Justin Mayo

          I will ruuuuuule you!!!!!

          • Nostaljack

            Don’t be a bowl-ey, Justin.

          • Justin Mayo

            actually, i was being Jimmy King from Ready 2 Rumble haha

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Hits Mayo with The Crown*
            Nice Ready to Rumble reference!

          • Justin Mayo

            No clue why anyone craps on that movie- ridiculous? yes- but intentionally so- was a great movie!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It’s a guilty pleasure of mine!

          • Justin Mayo

            you NEVER stand in the middle of the ring when there’s a ladder match going on!!- best line

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Loving the classic NAO Shirts that they are wearing! I still have one of the original run shirts!

  • Xavier

    The Real Double J & Rockablility, who would of knew

  • Mike McCarthy

    It’s sad that Batista isn’t even the best tweener in the company right now….

  • Austin

    Ah it’s so great to see the NAO back. They act the same and perform even better. It’s as if they never left!

  • Danny Philippi

    We’re inching closer to the 1000 mark at 10:00 no less. Can we keep this momentum up?

    • Ashley

      We just did about 80 comments in under 10 mins!

    • Xavier

      Easily, Raw spills over into 10:15 and then even after that some people still stick around for another 15-20 minutes to chat

  • Seth

    Cody said a no-no word!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yay! Make Production work!

    • Mike McCarthy

      Let’s all remember that Cena, the darling of PG, once said “I’m a big purple pin wheel, Rock go ahead and blow me.”

      • Seth

        That’s a no-no period because that just fuels rule 34 fan art. :P

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Lol! I haven’t seen a rule 34 mention on here yet! YOU WIN!

          • Seth

            *Grabs the award* I’d like to thank my Mom for giving birth to an awesome person like me so I can win this award for mentioning rule 34…I’d also like to thank the teleprompter saying I shouldn’t be on stage because it’s ridiculous.

            Finally I’d like to thank the internet for inventing that rule because it has endless possibilities for jokes. Thank you! Thank you!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Fist bumps Seth*

        • Alex Gallardo

          Some of that fan art is actually pretty realistic (don’t ask me how I know)

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Lol!

      • Xavier

        He also called Rock Kentucky Fried Chicken S***

  • Jimmy

    Quickbet: Best in-ring entertainer. E.g. HBK, The Rock, Stone Cold etc…

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

      HBK

    • Mike McCarthy

      Scotty Too Hotty, The Worm is the most ENTERTAINING move in history.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I have a feeling people are starting not to take me seriously…..lmao

          Not at all!

    • Andrew

      im a denver fan and ill say 27 24 i wont pick who wins

  • Stephen Cash

    How should they bring taker back to WWE? I’m think Lesnar vs Orton tonight…. Lesanr about to win title lights off…. lights on Taker staring down Orton then turns to Lesnar cuts throut chockslams Lesnar

    • Xavier

      Interrupting a Cena promo but for some reason Vince refuses too pull the trigger on a feud involving the two guys who have been booked stronger then anyone else over the past decade smh

      • Stephen Cash

        I agree. I would love to see Cena vs Taker over anyone else as long as Cena loses

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Cole welcomes us. Road Dogg and Goldust in the ring. Road Dogg doing his signature punches/dance combo. Two-count and Road Dogg locks in a headlock, Goldust fights out. Whip and goes for a dropkick but RD holds onto the ropes and Goldust falls, elbow and a two-count. Daniel Bryan chants from the crowd. Billy Gunn tags in. Stomps on Goldust. Knee to Goldust and we head back to USA.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Seems like since this is a big match that they tried to keep a lot of the action on TV rather than the App.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Also worth noting that I think I saw Road Dogg flip off Cody during his signature. I can’t say that with 100% confidence but he was audibly apologizing to someone at ringside.

  • Andrew

    which theme song do you think is the undertaker’s best out of all the ones he used? mine is the corporate ministry one or limp biskit

    • Bob’s Diner

      Corporate Ministry theme was awesome

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Classic followed by Big Evil theme “You’re Gonna Pay”

  • Xavier

    The Outlaws really don’t have it anymore it looks like

    • Stephen Cash

      Thats just Road Dogg

      • Xavier

        Gunn doesn’t look much better

  • Seth

    We got blood.

  • David Jr.

    Richard Gray brings up a good point on his twitter page. 8 o’clock, the Authority called Batista, a friend. 9 o’clock, Batista says he doesn’t care what the Authority thinks.

  • Mike McCarthy

    LESNAR

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

    Lesnar takes apart the Brotherhood.

  • Danny Philippi

    Oh no! Lesnar is unleashed.

  • Seth

    Brock smash.

  • Xavier

    That was one of the worst tag matches I’ve seen in awhile

  • Justin Mayo

    Rare point of continuity- Lesnar appears and NAO takes off like their keisters are on fire!

  • Mike McCarthy

    It might just be me but I really enjoy seeing these Lesnar/chair assaults.

    • Seth

      This one was better than the last one. Sent the message across. Less is more in this case.

      • Mike McCarthy

        The spot with Big Show was definitely too much. There’s a point where WWE has to remember that we really do know it’s staged. Seeing 39 chair shots just loses effect.

        • Seth

          If you know how to sell it, you can get a long time off of one punch if you sell it and then promote it right. Wrestling’s still wrestling in that respect.

    • Carlos Aponte Jr

      Building him up to be a monstrous heel, I like it

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

    What would Lesnar do if throwing those chairs he threw one into the stands. I’m sure WWE is Scared of that aren’t they?

  • Stephen Cash

    This is how Lesnar should be booked…. same thing for Orton

  • Danny Philippi

    Lesnar hates chairs. Lensar hates chairs. LESNAR HATES CHAIRS!

    • Seth

      The chairs make him ANGRY! BROCK SMASH!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I have the gamma bomb assembled! Now to depower Lesnar!

  • Stephen Cash

    Are the chairs rigged to break? Or is he hitting them that hard?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’s swinging for the fences each time.

    • Seth

      I think they’re slightly gimmicked but Brock is so damned strong that you could believe it from him.

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

    Appropriate time for the Do Not Try this at home promo

  • Xavier

    1500 comments anybody?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      PLEASE! I wanted it by after WM, but I’ll be ecstatic for tonight!!!

      • Xavier

        2000 for Mania

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I question if the site can handle 2000! We’ve had moments that has been hard to keep up with this as is.

      • Alex Gallardo

        I’ll keep trying to comment.

        • Justin Mayo

          and I’ll keep trying to reply to some comments :-P

      • Xavier

        Have you guys in the WNW staff out any thought into doing a RAW, Smackdown, PPV 2 hour podcast/recap show?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I can send the idea into RG. I’m not the man to do it. My voice is awful!

          • Xavier

            Lol why you say that

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Because it’s the truth! Just listen to the Magnus interview again. I’m there at about the 18 minute mark.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I would love to watch a WNW podcast.

        • Cubed56

          id do it, i don’t have the equipment but have some radio talking experience

        • Mike McCarthy

          Would’ve been a good idea but now they’re doing just that with WWE Network.

        • Mike McCarthy

          Richard actually said in his latest “Richard Reacts Radio” That he’s going to try and do them after every Raw. Of course this is exclusive to Premium members but I’m pretty sure you’re already one anyway.

  • Stephen Cash

    I love that WWE airs these!!!

  • Bob’s Diner

    OK Xavier – this show worth checking out when I get home?
    Thinking of not reading any further (not a fan of spoilers if I am planning to watch)

    • Xavier

      It’s been decent. Nothing epic or anything but not bad either. The crowd hasn’t really been as vocal as I though

      • Bob’s Diner

        Hmmmm… I was looking forward to more crowd shenanigans…
        Well I might check it out anyway and just skip the boring parts. I’m intrigued enough after reading about the start and how much you and Nostaljack were enjoying it. Plus the main event should be decent enough. Thanks, bro. Hope you have a good night

  • Danny Philippi

    When is the Hall of Fame announcement going to happen? It should happen before the 8-man diva match.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Saxton recaps the last match. He puts over the upcoming divas match that is NEXT. He welcomes the Funkadactyls
    The match is Funkadactyls and Bella Twins vs. AJ, Tamina, Aksana, Alicia Fox

    Naomi says they’ll bring the funk and win.

    Dean Ambrose Days without a Televised Title Defense: 91

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I have the feeling it will happen at EC.

      • Stephen Cash

        unification?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Aye.

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

        Rather see Ambrose vs Reigns and Reigns win the title then a Unification.

    • Alex Gallardo

      This is starting to get depressing. Just let the guy defend the belt, or at least combine it with the IC title.

  • Stephen Cash

    Uggg…. Aksana

  • Seth

    I don’t think the audience will be chanting ‘We want Divas’ in this one. :P

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Can Aksana ever wear gear that doesn’t fit her like a potato sack?

  • Danny Philippi

    Brie in pinstripes? Guess the Bellas are Yankee fans.

  • Xavier

    I challenge Naomi & AJ to a handicap match ;-P

    • Danny Philippi

      Shut up and stop slobbering.

      • Xavier

        Lol

        • Seth

          DUDE! You drooled all over my hat!

          • Xavier

            I’ll try to contain myself lol

          • Seth

            *Collects hat like Jericho collected his ‘holds’ in WCW* My hat! MY HAT!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Are you sure about that staying PG?

  • Stephen Cash

    The divas division is depressing…..

    • Danny Philippi

      Makes the knockout division look like the Bad News Bears, though.

  • Seth

    Kind’a telling the audience popped that little bit when AJ was tagged in.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Interesting note from WWE App

    They had a poll that will be used for the upcoming show WWE Countdown on the WWE Network. The question was
    “Which Celebrity has added the most memorable twist in WWE History”
    Now there were a lot of options and I didn’t realize it was for WWE Countdown. So when I voted the options disappear, the ones I can remember are included at the bottom of this comment.
    I believe this was the first time they’ve incorporated the App with the Network so I thought it was worth mentioning.
    The poll options I remember were:
    Mike Tyson, Donald Trump, Cyndi Lauper, The Muppets, Bob Barker, Drew Carey (and a lot more)

    • Justin Mayo

      I’d say Tyson

  • Danny Philippi

    Any reason Nikki wears the number 02?

    • Ashley

      Her soccer number?

    • David Jr.

      I think it was her number when she played soccer.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’s a thing to differentiate her

  • Nostaljack

    What a fantastic match! The memories of this one will last a lunchtime.

    • Mike McCarthy

      will last a bathroom break**

  • Xavier

    Who do you guys think will be the one to take the strap from AJ?

    • Stephen Cash

      Paige

    • Andrew

      i think it will be someone from nxt like emma or paige

    • michael

      Michelle Beadle

      • Mike McCarthy

        comment of the night

      • Xavier

        LMFAO, post of the year so far

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

      Naomi

    • Mike McCarthy

      By the way they’ve been booking the last couple weeks I’d have to say Naomi.

      • Xavier

        Was thinking the same thing actually

    • Justin Mayo

      I’ll challenge her ;)

    • David Jr.

      Emma or Paige.

  • Xavier

    NICE!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    6 Diva suplex! Nice!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Props to the Divas, never seen a triple duplex before.

    • Mike McCarthy

      suplex**

    • Xavier

      That was a nice spot

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

    is that enough to get Naomi a title match?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yes it is!

    • Ashley

      Hope so!

  • Danny Philippi

    How many times has Naomi pinned A.J. and will she finally get a Diva title shot?

  • Seth

    Worst worm ever.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Scotty 2 Hotty is ashamed.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Scotty Too Hotty just turned off the television.

  • Stephen Cash

    Who does everyone think it will be?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Bearer

      • Stephen Cash

        Same here. maybe Jake the snake

    • Xavier

      Big Boss Man

      • David Jr.

        If you ever take a trip down to Cobb County, Georgia. You better read the signs. Respect the law and order.

    • Nostaljack

      JIm Cornette

  • Mike McCarthy

    @Nostaljack:disqus has your live video started yet?

    • Mike McCarthy

      nevermind, mine just started.

    • Nostaljack

      Yeah. Yours?

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

    Prediction: Jake Roberts is the inductee

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It has to be Paul Bearer.

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

        It has to be who?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Get ready, as I NEVER say these words!
          You were right!

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

            *Pop*

          • Seth

            That was a Road Warrior pop!

    • Alex Gallardo

      You were right on that one.

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

    I still can’t think Over The Edge 99 will be on the Network.

    • Mike McCarthy

      No way in hell

    • Ashley

      I still have the VHS tape of that PPv

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

        Then you are one of the few with it then.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It has a moratorium on it. If I remember right, the PPV footage never being released was part of the settlement with Martha Hart.

      • David Jr.

        It should never be released.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Agreed. Anyone who would want to see that should have their head examined.

          • David Jr.

            Truthfully, they should have stopped the PPV when the accident happened.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Agreed.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Saxton welcomes Naomi. He reminds us of the inductee. He says for his first night he’s having fun. He then transitions to on this date in WWE history for JUSTIN HOT BRADSHAW (now known as JBL) they show a video of his debut.

  • Stephen Cash

    It has to be Bearer!!!!

    • David Jr.

      I know he passed away last year. But I still think he should go in the same year Undertaker and Kane go in. (Which I believe Jesse thinks should be Wrestlemania 33.)

  • Seth

    JAKE THE SNAKE ROBERTS!

  • Ashley

    Wow, Jake the Snake!

  • Mike McCarthy

    what if this promo was actually for the snake and not Jake himself?

  • Andrew

    jake the snake congrats

  • Stephen Cash

    VERY DESERVING!!!! Could be an all deserving class this year!!!! Bearer will be added soon

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

    Congrats to Jake “The Snake” Roberts!!! Well deserved.

  • Xavier

    Jake Roberts it is. I wonder if Warrior & Roberts will take verbal shots at each other like Hogan & Austin did back at the 06 induction

  • Seth

    Truth be told…I really really REALLY can’t wait for this speech. Jake’s always been a phenomenal talker.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’ll say the same thing I said for Ultimate Warrior. Paul Bearer deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. Though I feel Jake Roberts is more deserving than Warrior.

    • Alex Gallardo

      They have to let Paul join the HOF this year.

  • Justin Mayo

    Anyone mind seeing Brock teaming with Show, Henry, and Batista, to take on Ryback, Axel, Del Rio, and the ORIGINAL Sin Cara in a “government mule beatdown” match?

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

    TBH I don’t see Paul Bearer being inducted this year unless they also induct Undertaker as well. And Undertaker should be the Headliner of his class.

  • Mike McCarthy

    BREAKING NEWS: Damien the snake leads HoF snubs.

  • Scooter

    JAKE THE SNAKE!!!!!!! Its amazing to see how much his life has come full circle!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Jake Roberts going in is a long time overdue. Glad to see one of the greatest in ring psychologists get his due.

    • David Jr.

      Jake fought in the era where WWE Title reigns last a long time. If times in the 80s were like in the late 90s early 21st century. He’d probably have been WWE Champion.

  • Alex Gallardo

    WrestleMania Rewind and the MNW will be my favorite shows on the WWE Network.

  • David Jr.

    I don’t know how many Hockey Fans are on here, but was that Gary Thorne’s voice?

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

    about 30 minutes left. needs about 100 comments.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We’ll easily pass it. 305 for 1500!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Let’s break the record!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Need some help from someone that has attended WrestleMania Axxess in the past. I want to buy tickets but don’t want to pick a date until I know who will be there, so my question is if I were to wait is there a chance they’d sell out?

  • Danny Philippi

    I still see this match not ending Raw. Something big is going to happen at the end of the night.

    • Xavier

      Agreed

    • Scooter

      Maybe Taker? Or something big from Punk.

  • Xavier

    I keep having to reload my page every 20 minutes now. The record is within grasp

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Same here Xavier! This has been an amazing night!

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

    The Yes Movement is taking over WWE.

    • Mike McCarthy

      For those wondering why there’s a problem at the end of the comment, it’s a disqus glitch.

      • Alex Gallardo

        I was wondering what happened to his arms.

        • Mike McCarthy

          Lmao, when I go to edit it they just disappear.

        • Justin Mayo

          he was beat down by lesnar and put in Kimura Lock. he’ll be out of action for a few month

          • Justin Mayo

            there should be another S in there, but too lazy to edit…so POOF, it says months now

    • savokes

      Beautiful

    • BIG M

      Clever.

  • savokes

    Bigger pop than Cena and Sheamus combined

  • Danny Philippi

    I also notice CM Punk hasn’t appear tonight. What gives?

    • Xavier

      Interesting

      • Andrew

        maybe he comes out at the end? not sure

      • Danny Philippi

        Also no Wyatt Family interference so far. What gives?

        • Xavier

          I’m guessing we get that at the end of this match

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

    We broke Smackdown’s record friday and now on the verge of breaking the RAW one in just a couple days after.

    • Xavier

      All thanks too me :-)

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Saxton hypes the next match and transitions to Nash’s post-rumble interview.

    Nash: (out of breath) “It’s been a couple years and the pop never gets old. It was a good night.”
    He goes on to call Reigns a future World Champion and is already a big star.

    Christian Finally returns

  • Stephen Cash

    Punk has to be in this ending somehow….

    • Mike McCarthy

      Holy crap, just realized he hasn’t even been mentioned

  • Mike McCarthy

    YES!!!!! THAT’S SO RANDOM BUT YES!!!!!!

  • Stephen Cash

    Christian PROMO!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    CHRISTIAN RETURNS ON SMACKDOWN THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!

  • Seth

    CHRISTIAN! CHRISTIAN! AT LAST YOU HAVE RETU-UR-UR-UR-URNED!

    Okay not as cool as his one song but I tried.

  • Mike McCarthy

    So…..why wasn’t he in the Rumble instead? More poor booking.

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

    Here goes the crowd

  • Stephen Cash

    I love Punk, but I can’t say I have missed him… This has been a great RAW

  • Danny Philippi

    Hope to see Cena v. Reigns at some point.

  • Xavier

    I wouldn’t mind seeing Cena & Reigns mix it up at some point

  • Seth

    I love crazy Ambrose.

  • Stephen Cash

    I love that Rollins got crazy time in the Rumble last night. He has been built as the weakest of the group, but now all three look like stars!!!

  • Xavier

    Here we go

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

    Roman Reigns Chants!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I feel bad for the delusional fan with the Cena vs. Hogan @ WM30 sign!

    • Xavier

      I saw a Taker vs Sting sign as well smh

      • Seth

        Poor poor bastards.

    • Danny Philippi

      He needs psychological counseling.

  • Mike McCarthy

    If you ask me, Cleveland has killed the Daniel Bryan outburst last night. The opening was nuts but since then there have been few to no chants for him.

    • Stephen Cash

      He just got back on the show? calm down

      • Mike McCarthy

        Guess you didn’t watch Royal Rumble. He was only on the first half hour but the crowd chanted for him all night. Not sure how “calm down” is a visible reply to my comment since nothing I said implied I wasn’t calm.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          The fans were appeased early with him tonight. Since he wasn’t being “Done Dirty”, they aren’t trying to hijack the show.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Yes but he wasn’t getting “done dirty” during the Title match, I’m not saying they needed to chant all night long, it just wasn’t compared to what Pittsburgh did.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            But the fans felt he had been with the loss early in the night. I’ll be the first to admit the Pitt is a VERY smart city, however, so that can also be used to explain the reactions.

    • Xavier

      Cleveland isn’t really a smarky city

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Roman Reigns getting a babyface chant!!!

  • Xavier

    The Reigns movement is starting to pick up steam

  • Mike McCarthy

    When are the morons of Cleveland gonna realize that “Roman Reigns” doesn’t have 4 syllables?

    • Seth

      ‘Let’s go Roman’ sounds better.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Congrats Seth you’re smarter than an entire city! lmao

        • Seth

          I feel insulted that I’m barely above that city! *BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!*

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

      Give em a break it’s Cleaveland

    • Danny Philippi

      Cleveland isn’t have the goodest skool districts.

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

    Reigns is a budding Star. Let’s nuture him into a superstar.

  • Danny Philippi

    Setting up the Daniel Bryan hot ass tag.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here come the Daniel Bryan chants…

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

    Who would have thought that Roman Reigns the Guy picked to be the muscle and to be hidden behind the others is now 1 year later the biggest star in the SHield.

    • Stephen Cash

      I really think they are all about the same

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

        Reigns is clearly above Ambrose and Rollins. eliminating 4 people at Survivor Series and 12 at the Rumble. Ambrose is US champion but isn’t defending it. and Rollins is kinda lost int he shuffle for the 3.

    • Xavier

      And he got over without being a internet guy lol

  • Danny Philippi

    Ambrose has a busted lip.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ambrose: The most fun selling in WWE!

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

    Prediction: Ambrose and Rollins gets a spear from Reigns.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Cleveland’s waking up!!!! Bryan exciting the crowd the only way Bryan can.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Surfboard!

  • Stephen Cash

    I swear if Sheamus turns heel after they qualify and attacks Bryan, and says hes aligned with the authority….

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’d be typical WWE booking?

      • Stephen Cash

        I really think that will happen….

      • Stephen Cash

        That would ruin a great raw

    • Danny Philippi

      I will jump out of my bed like a monkey.

    • Andrew

      wouldnt be surprised at all

  • Seth

    Dean could sell a piece of coal to someone from West Virginia.

    • Justin Mayo

      or snow to an eskimo

      • Seth

        I had to get a joke about my own state in…

        • Justin Mayo

          well that don’t work for me then- i live in cali, and swagger already had his match

          • Seth

            Three things you can find in the state: Coal, wilderness, and people in blue and gold WVU gear.

    • Mike McCarthy

      or a Daniel Bryan t-shirt to Vince McMahon….

      • Seth

        I even think Dean could sell a Mongo vs Sid match to a bunch of smarks!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I’d buy it!

          • Seth

            Dude, if Dean went to my house and tried to sell me that match…I’d buy 20 copies and send it to everyone.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Sorry folks but I’m having App troubles. I can hear commentary but my visual is frozen on the “Live Video Coming Up” screen.

    • Mike McCarthy

      More WWE Network concerns.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    RECORD BROKEN!!!

    • Seth

      BOOYAH!

    • Stephen Cash

      Who had the comment?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Me with the comment above. It was my turn!

    • Alex Gallardo

      YES! YES! YES! I’m glad I came back to this thread.

    • Xavier

      I called it from the very beginning. 1500?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I hope, but people are in awe of the match!

    • Danny Philippi

      YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!

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

    it took getting fans pissed about Bryan not being in the rumble to break the Record..

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cena really needs to learn to match his belt with his bands.

    • Stephen Cash

      I know!!! It’s distracting and awful

    • David Jr.

      Where do you find a bright green belt?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Spencers!

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

    Reigns vs Cena, a future feud? Yes Please!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Abso-freaking-lutely!

  • Stephen Cash

    Reigns is going to hurt himself with that soon

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Superman Punch on CENA! Awesome!

  • Stephen Cash

    I would love for Reigns to add that tossing samoan drop Umaga had to his move-set

  • Stephen Cash

    Where is the freaking Wyatt Family?!?!?!?!?! WHy did I just realize they’ve been missing?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Wyatt’s, Punk, Kane,

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They’re coming… I’m betting they attack Cena again.

      • Stephen Cash

        definitely, but after he qualifies. What if Sheamus attacks DB and aligns with the wyatts?

    • David Jr.

      No CM Punk is trending on twitter, get No Wyatt Family trending.

  • Justin Mayo

    woohoo!!! record!!

    • Stephen Cash

      someones using internet explorer

      • Justin Mayo

        nah wrestling with a year old wolf dog

    • David Jr.

      A Broken Record tends to skip.

  • Xavier

    I like how they’re working this match around the eventual Daniel Bryan hot tag

  • Seth

    Bryan’s working the crowd on the apron too. I approve of this.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cena has the WORST Sleeper face!

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’m pissed, I sat through three hours of Raw and I still don’t know who stole Xavier Woods’ Rumble number!!!!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      JBL!

      • Mike McCarthy

        He blamed JBL, then said “but everybody’s a suspect” this lack of clarity might drive me into insanity.

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

    Hot Tag Time!

  • Xavier

    I hope Sheamus isn’t turning heel here

    • Stephen Cash

      Brogue kick

      • Xavier

        Yeah, I’m getting nervous

        • Stephen Cash

          Me too….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bryan is on FI-YAH!!!

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

      He’s Firing his Lazer!

  • Danny Philippi

    We are at the top of the 11:00 hour and no Punk or Bray.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m betting no Punk this week.

  • Seth

    Daniel is very very very over.

  • Xavier

    Cena botched that

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Glad I wasn’t the only one who saw that.

    • Mike McCarthy

      A bit of karma for Reigns, he made a similar mistake when Batista speared him last night.

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

    Spear on Cena!!!!

  • Ashley

    Bad Spear on Cena

    • Xavier

      Yeah, Cena jumped a little too high

      • Ashley

        Yes, more like his junk got speared!

  • Seth

    That wasn’t a very pretty spear. Both’ll feel that in the morn’n.

  • Stephen Cash

    First bad Reigns spear i have seen

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Blame Cena. He was out of position.

      • Stephen Cash

        I agree, just saying it was the first one

      • Stephen Cash

        I do, just saying it was the first Reigns spear gone wrong

  • Cory S

    all 6 guys have looked amazing in this match. Rollins showing up

  • Jesse Sherwood

    SICK suplex by Bryan!

  • Xavier

    That suplex on Rollins looked painful

  • Mike McCarthy

    BROGUE KICK

    • Xavier

      One of the better finishers

      • Mike McCarthy

        Well protected and fun to watch.

    • Mike McCarthy

      boy that felt good.

  • Seth

    That was an awesome kick.

  • Cory S

    match of the year candidate?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Think it’s to early to already throw two moty candidates into the hat.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hot tag to Cena!

  • Seth

    WYATTS!

  • Xavier

    Holy crap, Reigns

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Reigns breaks the STF!!!

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

    Reigns broke the STF!

  • Ashley

    They’re here!

  • Stephen Cash

    Sheamus is turning

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

    Double count-out?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Absolutely amazing match to end Raw!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Amazing spot by Reigns

  • Mike McCarthy

    ….we’re here

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cena, Bryan, and Sheamus are in thanks to the DQ!

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

    Wyatts attack Cena. Team Face win by DQ

  • Xavier

    Really good job here protecting Reigns. He may be headlining Mania next year by the way they are booking him

  • Stephen Cash

    SHIELD vs Wyatts?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Welcome to the start of the Wyatt/Shield feud!!!

    • Cubed56

      THANK GOD!!!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I can see the Wyatts winning at WM against The Shield, causing the breakup.

        • Cubed56

          me too, however if they are doing bray/cena, that would mean wyatts/shield would have to be at EC, which is too bad, that is a WM match no doubt

          • Xavier

            Thumbs down to Cena/Wyatt at Mania. Cena/Taker please lol

          • Cubed56

            ABSOLUTELY!! Or Bryan/Taker with DB winning, or the scenario we discussed last week

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I can’t see Bryan winning, but Taker shaking his hand after the match like he did Hardy years ago.

          • Cubed56

            I wish you could’ve seen how Xavier and I had it going down if DB was to go under, I firmly believe you would agree whole heartedly

          • TheDeadOwl

            Did you guys discuss it on another post? My curiosity is peaked

          • Cubed56

            We had it that taker dominates the first 10 minutes then DB makes his comeback and hits taker with everything he has and stuns taker gaining several near falls getting closer then anyone ever has to beating the streak. Taker then throws the kitchen sink at DB using all his signature moves(chokeslam, old school, last ride, tombstone) but DB kicks out of all of them leaving taker mystified. Eventually taker catches DB in hells gate, but DB reverses it into the yes lock. Then just as taker is about to tap, he reverses back into hells gate, where DB fights for about 90 seconds and eventually passes out right before reaching the ropes to break the hold. This way takers streak is intact, but DB looks amazing and gets even more over then he already is.

          • TheDeadOwl

            Personally, I’m not opposed to the streak ending, if a) it was against someone who can benefit from it or b) taker gave his blessing. But in terms of the streak staying intact, and if it’s against DB, then I’m 100% behind everything you just mentioned. Little shades of Hart/Austin. (Minus Taker turning heel of course).

            If I had to go off a hunch and guess the WM main event though, I’m going with Orton (C) vs Batista vs Bryan. The next two months I think they’re going to tease the lack of confidence the authority has in Orton while also teasing Batista joining them, leading to Bryan beating them both and overcoming the authority.

          • Cubed56

            I like that too, im also not opposed to the streak ending

          • TheDeadOwl

            I’m thinking…

            WWE WHC
            Orton (C) vs Batista vs Bryan

            Cena vs Wyatt

            Undertaker vs Lesnar

            IC/US Unification
            Langston vs Ambrose

            Tag Team Championship
            NAO vs The Wyatts vs The Brotherhood vs The Usos
            (Or insert TRA or Shield)

            HHH vs Punk

            Not sure what they’re going to do with Sheamus, Ziggler etc though

  • Xavier

    Could that be the start of the Wyatts vs The Shiled

    • Cubed56

      sure as hell hope so

  • David Jr.

    Wyatts vs. Shield at Elimination Chamber.

  • Seth

    Ambrose’s face is awesome.

  • Justin Mayo

    well guys, it’s been fun, but sady I must depart to take care of the puppy. congrats to all for breaking the record tonight!!

  • Stephen Cash

    I’m just glad Sheamus did not turn!!!!

  • Cubed56

    YES, YES, YES!!!!!!! Hopefully this is setting up my dream of wyatts vs the shield at WM

  • Mike McCarthy

    Was about to say Reigns was doing a great job selling the STF, then he comes up with that amazing angle and it just gets better.

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

    No Punk on Raw.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, he wasn’t needed. Plus, that gives something for SD in the way of storyline progression!

      • Tim

        Smackdown progressing storylines? That’s crazy talk.

  • Cory S

    absolutely amazing way to end the show. YES! YES! YES! YES!

  • Xavier

    No CM Punk tonight, that’s very strange. These last couple of months it feels like creative doesn’t really know what to do with Punk

    • Stephen Cash

      HHH vs Punk is where they are going, and he just was not needed tonight

      • Xavier

        Not needed? He’s one of their top 3 babyfaces

        • Stephen Cash

          I love Punk but I did not miss him tonight

    • Mike McCarthy

      It’s possible Punk asked for the night off.

  • Xavier

    If/when the WWE finally gives Bryan a lengthy title reign Reigns should be the one too end it

    • Stephen Cash

      Reigns needs to be a face

  • Cubed56

    I had to go away for a couple minutes, but how in the hell does cena not know how to take a spear, he was a college football player for god sake

    • Xavier

      So was Reigns and he botched last night as well when Batista did it. Interesting lol

      • Cubed56

        very true, but I honestly think last night was more batista botching then reigns, ill let cena slide it happened awfully fast

        • Xavier

          Nah, that was on Reigns bro. He did exactly what Cena did

          • Stephen Cash

            I love punk, but I did not miss him tonight

          • Cubed56

            yea that’s what your supposed to do, it allows the spearer to wrap his arms and guide you to the ground, lol I just contradicted myself yes it was reigns fault tonight, he failed to wrap up cena and guide him to the mat

          • Stephen Cash

            Reigns fault last night, Cena’s tonight

          • Cubed56

            I disagree, I think its the opposite, the person being speared has to leave there feet to allow the person spearing to wrap up and guide them to the mat, if they don’t leave there feet they are in a dangerous situation of severe whiplash and possible concusssion

  • Austin

    The shield vs the Wyatt’s in a tornado tag elimination chamber?

  • Tim

    I’ll let one slip where the shit was punk at. Not even a mention that he missed from being hurt. Whatever. The raw ending was ok. But a dq is garbage.

    • Stephen Cash

      Pretty gret ending actually, and Punk wasn’t needed

  • Alex Gallardo

    Well, I’m glad we were able to to break the record tonight but now that Raw’s over I’ll see you guys on Thursday.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep! Hopefully, we can go 3 for 3 with Impact!

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

    I think Punk was off to sell the attack by Kane at the Rumble.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Possibly but if that was the case they would’ve said that at some point in the night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He did take a nasty bump before the Chokeslam, and the slam was pretty rough too.

      • Xavier

        Cena took a chokeslam thru a stage light once and still showed up the next day :-P

        • Seth

          Poor stage light. We hardly knew ye…

          • Xavier

            Lol

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yes, but Cena is superhuman!

  • Mike McCarthy

    If we get Shield vs. Wyatts that means Cena still needs an opponent….I swear to god they better not actually be considering Hogan.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Cena vs. Taker!!!

      • Mike McCarthy

        PLEASE!!!

      • Xavier

        YES YES YES YES

  • Danny Philippi

    Alright. First things first, we all should be proud of setting a new mark for the Raw chat. It will be tested but 1/27/2014 will be a date marked in the capsule of WNW. Secondly, Orton v Bryan v Cena v Sheamus v ? v ? should be an outstanding Chamber match. It could get better with the addition of Lesnar. Third, Shield v Wyatt Family should end with a Bray v Roman show-down to crown the next big star of WWE. Lastly, I guess CM Punk is taking a mini-break before he squares off with the Authority. Next week is going to be great. See you guys and girls later and hoping the Super Bowl goes my way.

    • Alex Gallardo

      See you Scooter!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We know Lesnar will most likely be in it. So who will be the other heel in it?

      • Danny Philippi

        Hope it is not Del Rio.

      • Santaisreal

        I would imagine Bray would be the prime candidate.

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

        Reigns maybe?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Reigns was just negated.

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

            He could still get in by himself. There’s nothing say he can’t.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            True, but most times when WWE does these sort of “Qualifier” matches, they won’t let someone in that lost one.

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

            True but usually when someone loses in the manner in which The Shield did tonight they are usually given a second chance match at some point. Of course usually that’s for Faces.

      • Mike McCarthy

        It could be a filler mid-carder. Could really be anyone they feel like pushing because they won’t be winning. In my opinion Christian is ideal.

      • Cubed56

        Bray, then the shield cost him during the match getting payback, setting up the WM showdown

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

    If Wyatt’s Face Shield then who does Cena Feud with. That would make him the man without a match.

  • Mike McCarthy

    The bottom line is Sheamus didn’t need to turn, he can get more over as a face and heels aren’t needed right now with having Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns’ stock rise significantly.

    • Stephen Cash

      The SHIELD look to be turning face to face the Wyatts…

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Honestly, I think both being heel will work. Shield will end up with babyface reactions thanks to Reigns’ popularity.

  • Cubed56

    im just hoping this sets up wyatts/shield at WM and not at EC, that match is WM worthy, and would also be the perfect time to split the shield by having them go under to the wyatts

  • Andrew

    wyatts vs shield would be great

  • Stephen Cash

    The SHIELD need to be the ones to turn face…. if the are feuding with the Wyatts

    • Cubed56

      all I care is that it goes down at WM and not EC

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Same here. That is a WM caliber match, easily!

        • Cubed56

          Honestly that would get the most hype then any other match imo, other then takers match depending on who he faces

  • Seth

    Okay time for me to get some sleep. Definitely interested in the end result. Good night world.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Goodnight Seth! Thanks for joining us!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Seth Rollins trending in United States.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      As well as he should. He did outstanding tonight.

      • Xavier

        Am I the only who thinks that maybe Ambrose is possibly gonna get surpassed by both?

        • Cubed56

          I feel that way also, but at the same time I think Ambrose will be fine cause he can play an amazing heel with his mic work and his in ring work is good obviously, so he will be fine imo

        • Mike McCarthy

          I really think we should all stop trying to compare them, they’re all amazing and I know when we rank them we always say that “3rd isn’t a bad thing” but the more and more we talk about it the worse and worse that third spot seems.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Shield vs Wyatts is also trending Worldwide.

  • Xavier

    Anyone notice how there was no follow up to the Lesnar angle

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That will be next week. Lesnar and Heyman will take the show hostage at some point.

      • Xavier

        I’m starting too smell Bryan/Lesnar or Bryan/Batista at Mania for the title

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I’m hoping Bryan/Lesnar, as Bryan/Batista would most likely end with Bryan dropping the title.

          • Xavier

            Me too. Bryan/Lesnar would be a ton of fun. A true David vs Goliath match. That also opens up the door for Cena/Taker. If WWE gave us Cena/Taker, Bryan/Lesnar & Shield/Wyatts at Mania the WWE would easily be forgiven for the Rumble

          • Cubed56

            no doubt, it would have the potential of being a WM that’s is talked about as one of the greatest off all time

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I agree.

  • Stephen Cash

    Rollins has really stepped up to the plate!!! He knows he is the one being left behide and isnt letting it happen, he looked great tonight

  • Mike McCarthy

    Goodnight everyone!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Goodnight Mike!

      • Mike McCarthy

        Peaceout my man!

    • Xavier

      NO COMEBACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We haven’t reached 1500 yet lol

      • Mike McCarthy

        Have you considered posting YES! 50 times?

        • Xavier

          Lol good one

        • Jesse Sherwood

          That’d get caught by the filter.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Darn technology!!!

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

    Cena Really at this point looks like someone with absolutely no plans for Wrestlemania. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

    • Stephen Cash

      TAKER!!!!!

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

        Lesnar

        • Cubed56

          I hope not

  • Mike McCarthy

    Tonight was the 200th episode of How I Met Your Mother and I need to watch it before I go to bed. Couldn’t watch it live because the last time I skipped the Raw opening for HIMYM Jesse nonchalantly criticized me, LMAO.

    • Stephen Cash

      Its always amazing!!! I tend to do the same

      • Mike McCarthy

        Favorite show of all time!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Lol, I need to as well, but it will have to wait until tomorrow. It’s on my other DVR!

  • Xavier

    WWE did a pretty good of recovering from last night

    • Cubed56

      agreed

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They took something that could have crippled the Road to WrestleMania and twisted it into their favor.

      • Stephen Cash

        Was it planned this way all along?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I don’t think so. WWE realized that they would be making a grave mistake to not at least somewhat concede to the fans with Bryan.

          • Stephen Cash

            So no Bryan vs Sheamus!!!!!!!

          • Cubed56

            sure as hell hope not

          • Jesse Sherwood

            If they do, fans will be absolutely pissed.

  • Cubed56

    WM XXX: cena/taker, DB/Lesnar or Batista for the title or three way dance, wyatts/shield, hhh/punk, orton/who cares, sheamus/big e, divas match, mitb match sound ok?

    • Stephen Cash

      No way Orton isn’t in the WWE title match… even if he loses at EC he will have a rematch at WM

      • Cubed56

        ok so its punk/kane, and orton /hhh since orton is gonna either turn on the authority or vice versa the way it seems

    • Stephen Cash

      Oh and Orton RULES!!!!

    • Xavier

      At first I always said that Cena/Taker should go on last if WWE ever pulled the trigger on that but with how over Bryan is I think it would be appropriate to have Bryan/Lesnar go on last if Bryan goes over of course

      • Cubed56

        I don’t have any issues with that. my card wasn’t necessarily in the order of matches, just the matches I feel would make a great card

      • Stephen Cash

        no way orton isnt in the WWE title match

        • Cubed56

          well if tonight is any indication that the higher ups actually may be listening, they would know not to put orton in that match as the fans will crap all over it and berate orton like they did him and cena at RR last night

          • Stephen Cash

            I think that was because we have seen that match a million times, but the match itself was pretty good actually

          • Cubed56

            that did have a lot to do with it, but the major ppv’s are usually attended by fans who take over the show and so their own thing and everytime orton is in a main event at those events recently they crap all over it

          • Stephen Cash

            I don’t get it. Orton is a extraordinary talent, but people who hate him really hate him

  • Stephen Cash

    Dream WM Bryan vs Orton (WWE title)
    Cena vs Taker
    Punk vs HHH
    Lesnar vs Batista

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

    I really like using the WM X ending with Bret Hart winning the Championship and being put on the shoulders of the stars as the crowd cheers and Bret Celebrates with the title for Daniel Bryan at WM 30. Imagine how that will look and sound if he won the title and all the stars came out and celebrated with him.

    • Xavier

      With Triple H & Steph (Owen Hart) staring down Bryan from the Aisle?

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

        Yes! or Heyman/Lesnar if they wanted to go that route after Mania.

        • Xavier

          I’m kind of hoping we get Bryan/Lesnar at Mania

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

            I’m hoping for an Extreme Rules match at Extreme Rules for them.

  • Stephen Cash

    I’m think we might get a fatal 4 way at WM…. Orton vs Bryan vs Batista vs Lesnar…. has this ever happened before?

    • Xavier

      I hope not

    • Stephen Cash

      I mean fatal four at WM

    • Xavier

      Mania 16. The match was terrible

      • Stephen Cash

        Who was in it?

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

          Foley, HHH, Big Show, Rock. Elimination match

        • Xavier

          Triple H vs Rock vs Foley vs Big Show with a McMahon in each wrestler’s corner

          • Stephen Cash

            Oh God, I remember that….

  • Mike McCarthy

    1500 Comments!!!!!

  • Stephen Cash

    Why did it just occur to me that Orton might turn back Face!?!?! NO!!!!!!!!!

    • Cubed56

      cause I made that aware to you below, lol

      • Stephen Cash

        That would be awful!!! I hate face Orton

        • Cubed56

          I agree, but its obvious there is tension between him ands the authority so one has to turn on the other, hopefully the authority on orton leaving him out of the title picture at WM

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope not. I’d rather see the Authority turn face!

      • Cubed56

        me too, but wouldn’t it would be easier to keep orton out of the title picture at WM if the authority were to screw him over

        • Jesse Sherwood

          True, but you could accomplish that the same way by having Orton face Bryan on Raw after EC.

          • Cubed56

            very true, that would be awesome as ill be in attendance for that raw, its in green bay

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Oh my Overlords guys and ladies… I am deeply humbled that we hit 1500 tonight! Thank you guys so much! We have grown in the year since we started these from 250-300 comments per Raw to this! It is absolutely amazing, and I am deeply grateful.

  • Xavier

    My prediction of 1500 has come. On that note ya’ll have a blessed night

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You too Xavier!

    • Cubed56

      later bro

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

    I’m off. take care folks.

  • Stephen Cash

    I’m thinking Orton goes into WM as Champ… somehow Bryan is in the match with him and Batista… Bryan wins by pinning Batista. Orton freaks out after losing and not being pinned, and the authority not helping… then he attacks bryan…. bryan, batista team up then HHH and the rest of authority come down and take their shots at Orton then they all hold Bryan up at the end

    • Cubed56

      wouldn’t that make bryan heel in a way?

      • Stephen Cash

        No it would make the authority face because Orton attacked him first and they cam to his aide

        • Cubed56

          good point

          • Stephen Cash

            I will be pretty upset if a part timer is in the WM main event over Orton who has worked his ass off all year

          • Cubed56

            ill be upset if any part timer goes over in the main event unless its taker, although batista’s contract is a full time 2 year contract so technically hes not part time

          • Stephen Cash

            Taker is an exception to the part-timer rule because he doesn’t choose to be a part-timers. he would fall apart if he was full time

          • Cubed56

            very true, that’s why hes the only part timer I have no issues with winning at WM

  • stoney

    I kinda have a feeling that Cena vs the wyatt family will be like Cena’s feud with nexus, with the Wyatt’s momentum and credibility completely destroyed. I know cena is the cash cow of WWE but i’ve always felt like he has been a road block in other peoples pushes.

    • Stephen Cash

      Edge? CM Punk? Sheamus?

      • Cubed56

        zack ryder, the entire nexus, umaga?

        • Stephen Cash

          The only person Cena really feuded with in the nexus was Barrett, and he was his own undoing… Umaga would be a star now if he didn’t overdose, and I don’t know where Ryder fits in

          • Cubed56

            ryder had great momentum in his angle with kane and eve torres until cena stepped in and ryder got left in the dust. im not arguing with your comment, cena has elevated people, but hes also been a roadblock to people, that not all his fault though

          • Stephen Cash

            I really think Ryder just wasn’t very good…

          • Cubed56

            I think ryder is good in the ring, but I do agree with you, eventually he just doesn’t have what it takes to stay a main event player

          • Tim

            I’d rather see curt Hawkins

        • Stephen Cash

          Unless you were listing these has people Cena helped, but then I don’t get the Nexus

          • Cubed56

            those are people cena hurt, not necessarily all his fault

          • Stephen Cash

            Cena definitely did not hurt Umaga… Umaga looked like a monster against him

          • Cubed56

            but did umaga win that feud no, he looked like a monster in the beginning yes, but then cena does what he always does, defies all odds by getting the hell beat out him, then makes his comeback and hits his signature moves and picks up the win

          • Stephen Cash

            Hey, he locked in the STFU with a ring rope

          • Cubed56

            that’s true

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart again for helping make this a record setting night here in the Raw Watch Party! Goodnight, and I will see you for Impact on Thursday!

  • BIG M

    Where was Punk.
    He looked pretty banged up after that table spot at Rumble and I know he’s working with sore ribs.
    Is he injured or just being rested.
