Reported on by Kendra Bunyon For Wrestling News World

As Maine is wrought with bad weather, my DISH connectivity is spotty. I will write what I can, but I’m going to keep this taped RAW short tonight, and there could be holes in it due to being under a blanket of ice.

RAW Starts

Video

Henry and Sandow dressed in their Santa costumes, but each alone on the screen as they spoke.

Henry – Twas Monday Night RAW, and all over the the town, the WWE ‘Universe’ arrived to watch Superstars throw down. The locker room was buzzing, red ropes trimmed the ring…

Sandow – But the World’s Smartest Santa was lurking in the wings.

Henry – RAW Christmas had arrived on a very special night, time to spread joy, and goodwill, in between the fights.

Sandow – A pox on this holiday, ’tis a day for fools, December 25th would be better spent at school.

Henry – On Hitman, on Stone Cold, on Sexy Grand Meister.

Sandow – On Mountie, on Blasse, on Irwin R. Shyster.

Henry – On our Christmas party, that Santa may reign, but the World’s Strongest Santa is here to put him in the Hall of Pain!

Sandow – That oaf is no match for my brains or my fitness, tonight I’ll defeat him, then cancel Christmas.

Trip, Steph and Kane out in power suits and Santa hats. There’s a shorter guy in an elf hat with Kane holding a Santa hat. Kane is handing out candy Kanes to everyone ringside (pun intended).

Trip – Welcome to a very RAW Christmas. It’s a time for sharing and family, for giving back. Steph and I like to make our employees volunteer at soup kitchens and places like that.

Steph – Like Hunter said, it warms our hearts, and there’s no place we’d rather be than with our extended WWE family. As the head of that family, it’s our jobs to make sure you have a very merry Christmas.

Trip – With that in mind, we have a wonderful show, starting with the very holidays hanging in the balance with Bad Santa going one on one with the jolly Good Santa.

Steph – Not only that, but the entire The Wyatt Family will face Cody and Goldust, and their partner, Bryan.

Trip – And the main event, that would be a main event in any season. The Shield will face Big E, Punk and Cena. With that, Merry Christmas to all of you…

Orton cuts Trip off and slowly comes to the ring, strap over each shoulder. Orton in and poses, but not on a corner.

Orton – First off, please, I would like to wish each of you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday. Steph and Trip, thank you for the support when I needed it the most. I did beat Cena by myself, but it was your faith that inspired my performance. I’m in a giving mood, so I’m giving The Authority a gift this year. I thought long and hard about this loving couple you have it all. This big ticket item is the hottest commodity, and already wrapped in a gold bow. Your gift is the WWE WHC. Thanks for a much deserved night off, Merry Christmas.

Orton group hugs with Trip and Steph and leaves.

Kane – And I heard him exclaim, as he rode out of sight, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

Kane calls fire from all four.

You actually saw Good Santa save Christmas, he’s already come through and brought me two others to help. The IC Champ, Big E Langston.

Big E – This season, I’m handing out beatings.

Punk – He’s handing out beatings like Good Santa is handing me gifts in the form of partners, here’s the third, hustle, loyalty, respect!

Cena – Who’s in the big main event tonight. Let me tell you something Punker, he may seem down now, but when the time is right, Big E will release the Langston, oh yesss!

Big E, all Reigns wants is for you to knock his teeth in!

    Hey everyone, ready for RAW full of Santas?

    • Alex Gallardo

      These next two Raws just feel like filler to be honest.

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

        This one especially.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Last year they had Santa get run over, and this year they’re having a battle between the good and bad Santas. Oh boy….

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

            And it looks as though I’m not going to see any of it. The weather here is bad and I’m getting no DISH reception.

          • Alex Gallardo

            That’s why I dropped Dish. I have cable now and it lasts through a lot more stuff than Dish did. It would drizzle and the TV would go out.

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

            We very rarely have issue, and cable here is 4 times more expensive than DISH with half the channels.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I guess you got it better than I did then. Well I hope your TV can come back on time, not that you’ll be missing anything good.

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

            I’m not expecting it to come back on.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Well then you really can’t watch Raw, unless you find a stream.

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

            Not worth trying to get a feed at this point. Hard to watch and talk on a netbook with this little screen.

  • The Breaker

    Hello all! I’m hoping that tonight’s RAW will at least be watchable. But if it actually turns out that way I’m calling it a Festivus miracle!

    • Alex Gallardo

      As I said before, these next two Raws are normally awful.

      • The Breaker

        Well I’m hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

        • Alex Gallardo

          That’s what I do a lot when I watch WWE. I can’t get too invested in them because they normally disappoint me.

          • The Breaker

            Well here, when I mean “the best”, it basically translates to “watchable”. As you said, they don’t do much on the holiday shows that interests the older crowd. We might get some amusingly odd cameos but that’s pretty much it. And what you’re saying about WWE being disappointing is true a lot of the time, mainly because they have this habit of doing something small that gets you really excited. But I think the real problem is that as wrestling fans we let crazy expectations ruin everything for us.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I wouldn’t say I expect to much of WWE. I know a lot of what I want to happen over there probably won’t and I’m okay with that. However, I do feel that product does need help and it’s not asking for a lot.

          • The Breaker

            As you probably know, wrestling is full of highs and lows. It’s just not going to be good all of the time. These last few months have been rough, but I’m seeing signs of recovery as of late. In WWE you’re always going to have things you like and others that you don’t. And at least for me, it’s usually that one thing that keeps me coming back. Yeah, watching it has become something of a habit, but I wouldn’t watch it if I couldn’t find anything to like.

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

            They always pick things up on the Road to WM. The Road to WM has started earlier and earlier each year, just like Christmas decorations in stores!

          • Alex Gallardo

            I love wrestling, and even though I may not always like the direction WWE or TNA are going in there’s always at least one thing I do like. Wrestling is just something that I don’t just watch out of habit, but I enjoy watching. The Road to WM always picks up things so I’m excited for that.

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

        So the bad weather is only keeping me from a crap show?

  • Alex Gallardo

    I don’t know what to choose this Thursday, it’s either seeing Magnus as TNA champ, or I could watch the Adore You video all day long. Eh, I got 3 days to figure that one out.

  • Danny Philippi

    Hello. Merry Christmas to all. Tonight will be the ultimate test for me. Should I watch a pre-taped Christmas-themed Raw or a Monday Night Football game between playoff-bound San Francisco or draft-bound Atlanta? I guess the 49ers playing their last regular season home game at Candlestick is a tie-breaker.

    • Danny Philippi

      *and draft-bound Atlanta?

    • Alex Gallardo

      I don’t even like Football, but you should watch that over Raw tonight. You’ll save yourself from watching a crap show.

      • Danny Philippi

        Okay. I will go 10 minutes football followed by 5 minutes Raw.

  • Danny Philippi

    Snow screen effects during the pre-Raw build? This will, in the words of Mick Foley, “not will for the weakened hearted.”

    • Danny Philippi

      *will not be for the weakened hearted.”

      They do that every year.

        #NotBeingOriginal.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I thought that preview was supposed to make me excited for Raw, not only make me not care for it more.

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

    Looks like I will be writing the Results! My DISH is back, though we’re under quite a layer of ice, so if I lose it, I’ll be back to talk and hang out. I’m also keeping this shorter tonight as it’s a taped show.

    • The Breaker

      I don’t know if you’re lucky or cursed to have the reception back!

  • Danny Philippi

    It’s Snowtime. I mean, SHOWTIME!

  • Danny Philippi

    I thought Alberto Del Boring riding over Santa was terrible.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yeah, that was craptastic!

      • Alex Gallardo

        Well look who showed up.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yeah, I was taking care of some necessary personal business, but got it done in time for Raw!

          • Alex Gallardo

            Good, it’s always nice to have you here.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I already don’t like this. However, I’m still giving it a chance.

  • The Breaker

    So here’s where Triple H tells how this is all “Best for Business”?

    • Alex Gallardo

      This time it’s “Best for Christmas”

    • Danny Philippi

      Triple H could do what’s “best for business” and not involve himself in this program as well as not involving Batista into WrestleMania XXX.

  • The Breaker

    Kane’s got candy canes!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Shouldn’t it be Kandy Kanes?

      • The Breaker

        I almost typed that but decided not to.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Now THAT would sell.

  • Danny Philippi

    Triple H covering his bad hairdo with that hat.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Even HHH realizes how bad the Santas segment is!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Evening Everyone. Season’s Greetings.

  • Danny Philippi

    May Randy Orton start “trying out” as an NFL punter. That be my X-Mas wish.

    • K!NG

      The Bengals need one

    • Alex Gallardo

      You think Mark Henry can give you that?

  • Danny Philippi

    Randy Orton’s gift should be re-packaged.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I can’t wait not to watch this Divas match!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I wish Divas matches like this one were never gonna start! :)

      • Alex Gallardo

        Just thank God for my computer and this thread. I always have something else to do when Raw gets boring.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    *Groan* Really Kane? You had to go there?

  • The Breaker

    Well, that segment was totally pointless other than to announce the matches (which could’ve been done without any of that)!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Didn’t creative learn from Survivor Series 1 and 2 this year with the 14 Diva Tag?

  • Danny Philippi

    WWE Divas < NFL Cheerleaders.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Nitro Girls > WWE Divas and NFL Cheerleaders.

      • Danny Philippi

        Godfather’s Ho Train > all the above.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nitro Girls > Most any other eye candy!

  • K!NG

    I Can tell we are not gonna get much story-line progression towards the RR till the Beginning of the year

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Most likely not.

  • The Breaker

    And apparently Orton is back to kissing the Authority’s rear after telling everyone a week ago that they can kiss his!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Of course he is! #WWELogic

    • Alex Gallardo

      Welcome to WWE booking.

  • Danny Philippi

    Piss Break! Plus A.J. is not in this match! #Outrage.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I just pee during the commercials for Raw and listen to Miley when something boring is on Raw.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Love AJ’s Merry Grinchmas shirt!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    The stock of this match has just taken a major plunge with AJ not being in it

  • David Jr.

    Is Jojo gone? and if so, why not Eva Marie too?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Good question. JoJo is rumored to be replaced for Total Divas. Her segments became nonexistent on the show towards the end of season 1.5.

  • BlazeKing

    As if the first two times wasn’t enough… They have to torture us again for a third time!!!

  • The Breaker

    Can someone explain why Vickie is in the match but AJ isn’t?

    • Alex Gallardo

      She is? I really don’t understand WWE sometimes. Why not bring up talented divas from NXT instead of using her?

      • The Breaker

        Because those girls would outshine the “Total Divas”, and WWE can’t have that!

  • Danny Philippi

    Late Watch Party Slammy:
    Eva Marie for Botch of the Year.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Correction: Mistake of the Year: WWE hiring Eva Marie.

      • David Jr.

        There’s only 2 reasons why they hired Eva Marie.

        • Danny Philippi

          Her style and charisma. LOL

          • David Jr.

            Obviously.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          And both are between her shoulders and navel.

          • David Jr.

            Exactly.

  • Tim

    SPOILER ALERT every face will win

    • Alex Gallardo

      This show was taped and this is WNW, not Reddit. So it’s not that hard to know the winners.

  • BlazeKing

    Oh my… Did AJ just call Cameron “Rosa Mendez”?! LOL

  • Danny Philippi

    Sixteen minutes till kickoff. #ThankGoodness

  • The Breaker

    What the heck do you call this?!?!

    • Tim

      Worse tv than tna

    • Alex Gallardo

      A typical divas match with a Christmas twist.

  • BlazeKing

    What the, WHAT?!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The Mega Hyper Stupid Discus Lariat…. BAKA BAKA BAKA BAKA!

  • The Breaker

    At least we won’t be seeing moves like THAT from Bryan, Cody, and Goldy…

  • Danny Philippi

    I bet Cole and JBL are back at Connecticut broadcasting this Raw like Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler did between ’94-’97.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They did it live, from my understanding. I feel sorry for them, regardless.

      • Danny Philippi

        Gorilla Moonson rolling over in his grave.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Aye.

        • The Breaker

          That was after last week’s selfie.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That’s been for the last 3 years.

          • David Jr.

            On Thursday we were talking about the Hardy vs. Undertaker match. So I rewatched it and JR helped you believe in Jeff Hardy, That’s whats missing in today’s WWE.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye, I can agree there. The commentators are too focused on feeding us VKM’s agenda!

  • The Breaker

    Sin Cara learned English!

  • Danny Philippi

    Oh crap! Sin Cara speaks English! WTF

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Looks like Axel is the latest to taste defeat by Huni-Cara! At least Huni-Cara can speak English!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    This lighting might make color blind people go into seizures.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I don’t know why they keep the mood lighting. It’s like they are making a bad film…

  • The Breaker

    I love JBL but the way he tries to argue about everything Cole says is beyond irritating.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    If that had been Sin Cara Uno, I promise you we would have seen a stretcher job!

    • Danny Philippi

      Total agreement here. Plus he would have been jobbing to Del Rio two weeks ago.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    They’re firmly behind him alright Cole… The pipes, that is!

  • K!NG

    Its like we have a new sin cara

  • The Breaker

    So in typical WWE fashion, I guess the whole “The Devil made me do it” thing Bray Wyatt kept saying a while back will never be explained.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sure looks like it. But with Bray, it could easily be dropped and revisited.

  • Danny Philippi

    Roman Reigns. Middle linebacker. The U!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So we are getting the Bad Santa vignette from last week again? BAKA!

  • Danny Philippi

    WTF!WTF!WTF!

  • Tim

    Oh boy here comes the third grade mentality. I joke around about all faces winning. Because in reality they always do on holiday episodes. But my comment gets erased. Because oh only we are allowed to post spoilers to the shows we love. So people already know what happen and don’t watch the shows. Therefor this site being adownfall to wrestling.

    • Danny Philippi

      Like America, “You either love this site or leave this site.” We the WNW!

      • Tim

        Like America, people can’t stand facts

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Tim, our filters catch that on taped episodes of Raw in order to keep people from spoiling the show. But there is absolutely no need to become disrespectful of the site over it. A comment asking what happened would have sufficed.

      • Tim

        So it’s like I said you can spoil the show. But im not allowed to. Also what part was disrespectful the part that everyone agrees on that since sites like this are the reason wrestling is falling down. Because they spoil everything. Granted if it’s cool enough to watch than people will watch. I could sit here and call this site names that would be disrespectful. I understand why it happens maybe you or Richard get money for people clicking on ads that might be on the articles you may write but still.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Tim, I’m not going to get into an argument with you over this issue. Please enjoy the show.

          • Alex Gallardo

            WNW is the place for fun, not arguments.

          • Alex Gallardo

            WNW is the place for fun, not arguments.

          • Tim

            I must of dreamt of off iwc arguments then.

          • Tim

            There is nothing to argue about. I’m right. But you enjoy the show too

  • Jesse Sherwood

    OH GOD NO!!!! Not Big Show in a diaper again!!! I need mind bleach!!!

  • David Jr.

    I’m not going to change his diaper.

  • K!NG

    Batista!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BATITSA VIGNETTE!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    I just turned my TV on, does that mean Batista return is official!?!?!?!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yes it does!

  • The Breaker

    I guess they went ahead and confirmed Batista because of the leak?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye sir!

  • Danny Philippi

    January 20th easily the most anticipated Raw of 2014. #UnleashTheBeast.

  • K!NG

    Awesome IMO what do the rest of you think?

    • David Jr.

      On Batista, interesting. Who do you want him to face at Wrestlemania?

      • K!NG

        I could see him facing Cena. But hard to tell.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          That would make sense, since Cena is the man who made him quit WWE.

          • K!NG

            Randy Orton would be another guy he could face

          • Jesse Sherwood

            There is some significant history to work off of there, for sure. Although one I don’t want to see him face is Taker. Batista had a shot at the streak once, if I remember right.

          • K!NG

            He did but his match with taker was one of his best and IMO a very Underrated match at WM 23. But i do agree with you i don’t like guys that keep going after the streak. One person I’d like to see challenge for it is John Cena.

          • David Jr.

            I was at Wrestlemania 23, it may have been the best match of that Wrestlemania.

        • Tim

          I was just saying that he would attack cena. Because all that return do. Examples Kane, Brock lesnar, the rock

      • Danny Philippi

        Batista with Ric Flair as manager v. Lesnar with Heyman as manager.

      • Carlos Aponte Jr

        It depends whether he returns as a face or heel.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          The way they aired that video makes me think he will return as a heel. Seemed too intense for a face return.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Personally, I can’t wait. He can add some credibility to some of these upcoming stars and help a struggling product turn to the right direction.

      • Carlos Aponte Jr

        Good point there.

    • The Breaker

      It’s really exciting. Some of Batista’s best work was right before he left the company. Hopefully he is used to elevate younger guys instead of going up against a part-timer.

  • Carlos

    Batista’s return announced tonight on RAW

  • Danny Philippi

    Bray Wyatt’s 2014 stock: up.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Cole botches again, calling Harper the one under the sheep mask.

  • The Breaker

    Cole just mentioned the Batista/Taker feud… is he hinting at something?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope not. As good as their WM 23 match was, I want someone new for the Streak.

      • The Breaker

        Totally agree. I don’t know if anyone in the younger crop of talent are ready yet though. Brock/Taker would be crazy, but I don’t want any issues with Taker’s health becoming a bigger problem because of something Brock does.

  • Danny Philippi

    Yoohoo! Anyone in the chat room?

    • Alex Gallardo

      I am.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’s just a quiet night tonight leading into the holidays. Happy Festivus!

      • Alex Gallardo

        Things are much better that way. I guess people might be celebrating Xmas early.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I know a lot of the local businesses where I’m at hold their parties on the 23rd.

      • The Breaker

        And it’s time for… the Airing of Grievances!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Oooooooo! Me first!

          • The Breaker

            Proceed!

  • K!NG

    I know this is a long shot but Imagine if Bray challenged Undertaker the mind games leading up to the match would be awesome the match it self not so sure about

    • David Jr.

      It would be a great lead, but Taker needs to fight someone established. Because he’s basically a Wrestlemania match and that’s it. So you need someone who won’t be hurt by a loss. And you can’t end the Streak now.

    • Tim

      That would be great. But only hurt bray

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF update: Phil Dawson 49 yard field goal. Niners 3- Falcons 0.

  • Danny Philippi

    Something I noticed about this show: Nothing trending on Twitter. #HarshSlaptoWWE

    • Alex Gallardo

      This is Disquis. There’s not really a need for hashtags on here because they’re worthless.

    • Alex Gallardo

      This is Disquis. There’s not really a need for hashtags on here because they’re worthless.

      • Danny Philippi

        I take it that you don’t realize the dig on social media I do on some of my comments.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I guess not apparently. I’ve just seen you do this before if I’m not mistaken.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It is probably me you are thinking of, because I have Disqus linked to my Twitter feed.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It is probably me you are thinking of, because I have Disqus linked to my Twitter feed.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Oh, my bad then. Sorry Danny.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Taped episodes don’t usually do well on Twitter. I expect a pretty low rating, like a 2.5, thanks to how close it is to Christmas.

  • The Breaker

    I just noticed– did they hand out Santa hats to everyone in the crowd?

    • Alex Gallardo

      They did.

  • Tim

    So is Batista just another person in a long line of people who are a “blast from the past” coming back for a wrestlemania story. Or is he coming back full time.

    • Danny Philippi

      He might be on the same contact deal that Chris Jericho is under. Appear for a few months, do outside projects, then come back for the big paydays.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I heard that he’s staying for a while and might be a candidate to win the Royal Rumble.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I heard that he’s staying for a while and might be a candidate to win the Royal Rumble.

      • Tim

        Oh god I so hope he and Sheamus don’t win the royal rumble. If so 2015 would be the first time in. I don’t even know how long. That I would buy the rumble. As much as I like the shield. I don’t want roman to win either. I just want Kane to beat hbk’s elimination record. He only has a few left.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Same here. If anyone has earned the right to have both of the Elimination Records, it is Kane.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          In fact, if Kane gets even 1 elimination this year, he ties HBK.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I don’t have anything confirmed I can pass on, but Alex G. below summed up the rumors. I’d be willing to bet he got a similarly structured deal to Lesnar, but with more committed dates for less money.

  • Danny Philippi

    Tim, I thought you said ALL Faces would win tonight. What gives?

    • Alex Gallardo

      I guess everyone makes mistakes?

      • David Jr.

        Nobody’s Perfect?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Definitely not Axel…

          • Alex Gallardo

            That’s damn true.

        • Alex Gallardo

          If you’re referencing the Hannah Montana then don’t, she got brutally murdered by Miley Cyrus 2013. But that song is still kinda catchy……

    • Tim

      Did they or did they not have a face

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He is referring to the Wyatts winning their match. And now Fandango won his Pole match against Ziggler.

        • Tim

          Lol yea I got that. But doesn’t that mean my comment earlier shouldn’t have gotten erased. Just saying

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And as I explained, it was an automated response. I don’t have control of that aspect of the moderation process. I’m sorry if you feel slighted over it.

  • The Breaker

    So I guess this feud lasts until the Royal Rumble… but what about the Triple Threat teases? Maybe Bryan encounters and eliminates the Wyatts during the Rumble match and wins the whole thing?

    • David Jr.

      If Bryan does win the Rumble I can see them doing a HBK type win.

      • Alex Gallardo

        I doubt he will, he’s been regulated to mid card at this point. Batista is my pick.

        • The Breaker

          What do you call mid card though? Because as I see it he’s on the same level as CM Punk.. and he’s not a mid card guy.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I pretty much mean that he’s been regulated to something a lot lower than he was before. He went from being in the main WWE title storyline to being put in a feud that was in the mid card.

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

        You mean #1 entrant?

        • David Jr.

          Yes, that’s what I meant.

      • The Breaker

        You mean by being the first entrant?

        • David Jr.

          Exactly what I meant.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Is Nick Mangold Daniel Bryan’s long lost brother?

    • Danny Philippi

      No, unfortunately. But he does have a sister that is a weight-lifter in the Olympics. Kind of like Mark Henry. Plus he plays snapper for the Jets.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Why are these segments happening again?

    • Danny Philippi

      Someone drinking spiked eggnog in the production truck.

    • The Breaker

      They have three hours to fill!

  • Danny Philippi

    Piss break!

  • The Breaker

    So I bet Barrett will come back in the arena for his “Bad News” segment and tell everyone that their donations are all going directly to him.

    • BlazeKing

      You see, I’ve got some bad news for you. That’s not Wade Barrett. It’s John Stossel!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I need cotton balls, stat!

  • The Breaker

    Jillian Hall should come out and show Woods and Truth how it’s done!

    • David Jr.

      JBL heard you , which is amazing since this is taped.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we thought it couldn’t get any worse than Woods and Truth… 2MB sucked!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I just can’t understand WWE’S booking sometimes.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It’s the holidays… At least that is the excuse I want to use!

        • Alex Gallardo

          That’s true, but we see these PG pukes all the time.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    NOT KHALI AND SANTINO!!!!!

    • BlazeKing

      Let’s be fair. It’s the only time Khali gets to win clean!

  • Alex Gallardo

    No one should have won that competition.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The real winners are the fans not watching!

      • Alex Gallardo

        What do I win?

        • David Jr.

          The luckiness of not having to claw your ears out.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Not having to pay someone to use mind bleach on you!

          • Alex Gallardo

            WOW! What a great gift!

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF update: Steven Jackson 2 yard TD run. Falcons 7- Niners 3.

    Christmas present on a pole match? Did VInce Russo get rehired by the WWE?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Looks like Russo came out of hiding! Christmas Present on a Pole Match!

    • The Breaker

      Russo was hiding in the crawl space!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I guess Creative found him when they found Matt Hardy’s buried stash…

  • Danny Philippi

    Fandango v. Dolph Ziggler? Really? For the umpteenth time!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And it is in a Pole Match!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And it is in a Pole Match!

      • David Jr.

        Wrap the Pole in red and white stripes and call it a Candy Cane match, Hey if you’re gonna do crap, go all out and totally make it bad.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Or call it a North Pole match.

          • David Jr.

            One Man Gang, it is wrapped in Red and White Stripes.

          • David Jr.

    Tampon On A Pole Match?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Well, they’ve already done it with Viagra so I can’t say that I would be surprised if they took it that far.

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

        I say that because Russo is such a bloody mess.

        I know this isn’t his match, but he’s famous for his Pole matches.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Say what you want about his idea, but he did get the match pretty popular and it’s still used in WWE today.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Say what you want about his idea, but he did get the match pretty popular and it’s still used in WWE today.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He did, and while the IWC wants to attribute the over saturation of them to Russo, as even I jokingly did, they were extremely common during the territory days if any heel had a signature weapon.

          • Alex Gallardo

            That’s true, the only problem with his pole matches were what was on the pole. Not the match itself.

          • David Jr.

            Agreed, be it Viagra, a picture of Scott Hall, or Judy Bagwell.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye… It got pretty asinine.

    Instead of a Christmas Present on a Pole match, it should be Ziggler vs. Fandango in a Feats of Strength Contest!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    At least there is only one pole here. Granted, I do expect Fandango to at least swing around and dance on the pole a bit, much to KB’s delight!

  • David Jr.

    The greatest thing ever to be on a pole in wrestling history. Judy Bagwell.

      I hate to say it, but I would rather watch an episode of WCW Nitro in 2000 than this episode of Raw.

    Considering how much they have built Fandango up the last few weeks, does anyone not see him winning here?

    How do they know about what’s trending on Twitter? They obviously think we’re stupid…

    Anyone have the Jillian Hall Christmas CD?

    • Alex Gallardo

      I don’t like to waste my money.

      I had it. Went to look for it and found it melted inside its case.

  • Danny Philippi

    Dolph Ziggler sucks now. He is in danger of being like John Morrison.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, I think he is in a worse position. He’s hitting Ryder territory, just with more relevance.

      • Tim

        But at least Ziegler is entertaining, and not a constant reminder of how horrible a place could be.

    • The Breaker

      They’re back to booking him to lose all the time because of his selling ability.

    Yes Darren, he does all of the talking for that very reason!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Darren just pulled a R-Truth there.

  • Danny Philippi

    Darren’s Houston is to R-Truth’s Green Bay.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Time for the crowd to turn… Although I’m surprised they haven’t before now.

  • BlazeKing

    That slip up was a work. PTP is playing the heels for this match.

    I haven’t been able to look at Titus the same way since the “Thanksgiving Incident” …

    • Alex Gallardo

      I don’t think I could even be around him without a shield over my face.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They have fallen into the joke category of the tag division with 3MB and Santino and Khali.

      • The Breaker

        WWE has been back and forth on them so many times.

    “Houston Sucks”

    “You don’t get like that by just going to the Gym?” Careful Cole you don’t want to rumors to start about O’neil based off of that comment.

  • Danny Philippi

    Houston Sucks chant … and it is not about the Texans this time.

  • BlazeKing

    “This ain’t Houston!” LMAO!

    Followed up by “It’s Austin!” from Darren

  • Danny Philippi

    Uso’s pulling a John Cena during the match. Hilarious!

    So, in storyline, they aren’t Sandow and Henry but Evil Santa and Good Santa, respectively?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye.

      • The Breaker

        So it’s just a coincidence that they both bear a strong resemblance to Sandow and Henry and also do the same moves they do?

    Roman Reigns 2014 stock: way up
    Dean Ambrose’s 2014 stock: up and up
    Seth Rollins 2014 stock: stagnant

      When the Shield breaks up, Rollins is gonna be the one in the lurch.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sadly, that’s true. I see him getting a midcard title and holding it off and on for 2-3 years before having a breakout moment at MITB.

  • The Breaker

    The obvious ending will have The Shield gang up on CM Punk, causing a DQ… and then Good Santa reappears, cleaning house! A giant bag of coal gets poured on The Shield!

  • Nostaljack

    They’re popping for Big E!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Big E. cleaning house like a madman! Massive pop for him!

    BIG ENDING!!!!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    Cena, Punk, Langston, and the Shield are saving the best and only for now.

    BIg E got a huge huge pop from the Big Ending.
    Rumble Intercontinental match? Reigns vs Big E?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope so!

      • Nostaljack

        I want more for Langston than that silly prop he’s holding.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Same here, but he could be the guy to help bring the IC Title up some!

        • The Breaker

          It’s now the second-tier belt in the company. They have no choice but to elevate it!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Now that is how you rocket someone!

    • Nostaljack

      And this rocket won’t do the Axel Bellyflop.

    Big E looks like a star there. That is how you are supposed to build someone like him. They learned from Ryback with Big E.

    • The Breaker

      And there’s also the fact that E looks way better out there than Ryback ever has.

      • Nostaljack

        Yeah, Big E. can actually work.

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

          Yep. that’s why I always was so annoyed when he was compared to Ryback. I.E. Ryblack. -_-

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF update: Roddy White 39 yard TD from Matt Ryan. Niners only up 20-17. LAST MNF UPDATE TILL NEXT SEPTEMBER. Hope everyone has a happy and safe Christmas and holiday season. Good Night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night!

    I still want to see Big E vs Mark Henry at Mania with Henry putting over the young Intercontinental champion. but I’d also be interesting in Batista doing the honors to Big E as well.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, thanks everyone for coming tonight. I know it was quieter tonight, but with the announcement that Batista is returning January 20th, I’m sure we will see another explosion of comments! Good night!

    • Nostaljack

      Night, John Boy!

    • The Breaker

      The RAW OTP on January 20th will be a record for sure! Night Jesse!

  • Nostaljack

    So much for a “throwaway RAW.” What I saw was all good. ‘Course, I missed all the holiday-themed dreck that likely decorated the earlier part of the show. Oh, darn. However will I survive?

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

    Raw was fun. I will be going back and watching what I missed. Loved the chat too.

  • Nostaljack

    I’m out too. Night, all!
