Recap of the attack by The Wyatt Family, but Bryan to the rescue, and with Punk they take out the cult!

Backstage Segment

Renee – I’m assuming you weren’t expecting it to be a fair fight tonight?
Punk – No, but I been dealing with Heyman and his goons, so I know what it feels like to be outnumbered for months. I accept being outnumbered, as long as everyone else accepts the fact that they’re going to be out-gunned. I knew what was going to be outnumbered tonight, but what I didn’t realize is that I’m not the only one who has an issue with The Wyatt Family.

Announce Segment

Cole says we haven’t seen Heyman since HIAC, but he’s on the phone.
Cole – Paul you there?
Heyman – I’m not here.
Cole – That being said, where are you, and what’s your medical condition?
Heyman – I’m in Europe and I’ve seen multiple specialists and seeking alternative medicine for the multiple injuries that I sustained at the hands of Punk at HIAC. I’m traveling with my physician. Due to the repeated blows, I’ve been diagnosed with acute thoracic spine trauma. I have a herniation of the C5 and C7, severely bruised kidneys, a nasal fracture and severe nasal swelling. What Punk did to me, an innocent man, athlete, and the father of two small children is a travesty. By entering HIAC, Punk repaid me by repaying me with a vicious beating after the match was over. (crying) After everything Punk and I have been through, it’s inexcusable. Punk and the ‘Universe’ owe me an apology for the beating I took at Punk’s hands.
Cole – Paul, are you crying?
Heyman – Wimpering… (phone goes dead)

The thought of my pride as a man being taken from me. You know what happens Renee, when you’re stripped of everything? You see yourself. You know what I saw? I didn’t see an intellectual savior, I saw a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

Zeb – That’s what I love about this country! The land of opportunity, and courtesy of The Real Americans, tonight you will get that opportunity at revenge, when we team up against Cena, Goldust and Cody Rhodes. Let me tell you something, this is going to be an opportunity for Mr. Sandow, and The Real Americans to defeat the TTC for the second time, to prove to the world and the ‘Universe’ that we are rapidly becoming the dominant team in the WWE. So gentlemen, if you would, please stand up straight and tall, in a loud clear voice, say with me, “We, the people!”
Sandow – Me, your uncrowned WHC!

Cena – Man we got some excitement in here tonight! In just a few minutes my partners will be out for a 6 Man Tag Match. I would like to take a moment to talk about a special partner. All month long WWE has partnered up with Susan G. Komen Foundation to fight breast cancer. Rise Above Cancer is a cause I believe in, the fight for life. We’ve all heard the numbers, each year hundreds of thousands of people are effected by breast cancer. WWE believes in the fight so much a that the pink merchandize will be available all year long. Even though October has come and gone, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Foundation directly so that someday we will find a cure! I just want to say thank you to the Divas and the Superstars for going pink, us wearing it is one thing, you supporting it is another. Sometimes you put your feelings aside for me and you support a true unbelievable cause, and that’s the fight for life. Joining me tonight is a very important group of the WWE ‘Universe’. If you would please stand, we have some breast cancers survivors and their families in the audience. You see them wearing their pink shirts. A two time survivor ringside. Your support has helped them. These people have overcome unsurmountable (sic) odds, and they have never stopped fighting, they are the true champions, thank you for joining us tonight. I think the best way to prove it is by bringing my partners out to show and prove, the Champs are here!

Trip’s music and he comes out hand in hand with Steph, both in power suits.
Trip – Okay, you want us out here, you want to waste everyone’s time, make it all about you again, come on out here.
Steph – Come on Big Show, you’re obviously in high demand.

Big Show out with a smirk on his face. He lightly slaps hands of fans, mostly kids, as he heads for the ring. Steph and Trip roll their eyes as they fume.

Steph – Big Show, you’ve agreed to settle, we’ve agreed to settle, no lawyers, just the three of us, what do you want?

Big Show – What do I want? I want a broom so you can hop on and fly back to Connecticut. As far as you…
Trip – You want to stand out here and trade sophomore barbs, I think I can hang with the best of them. Now, what’s this all about, huh. Seeing as how you’re broke, it’s about one thing, it’s about money. How many zeroes do I have to put on the check to bail you out this time, huh? How big does that check have to be for you to sell your dignity one more time?
Big Show – Hunter, you should know. I don’t have money problems, I don’t have any money. It’s about me doing what I was meant to do. It’s about me being the best at something. It’s about me being in the WWE and performing in front of these people. As hard as you make this place to work, this is still a fantastic place to work. There’s a lot of great people here, I just want my job back Hunter.
Trip – You want your job back. (to Steph) He wants his job back. (to the fans) The Big Show wants his job back! You want your job back. You can take your job and you can sh…
Steph – Hunter! Hunter! Hunter! (she talks to Trip off mic) You want your job back Big Show?
Big Show – Yes, ma’am, I’d like my job back.
Steph – You got it.
Big Show – I got my job back, “YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Steph looks over her shoulder at Trip who looks like a broken man.

Big Show – Oh man, it’s good to have my job back.
Steph – Great.

Steph grabs Trip by his arm and tries to pull him away so they could leave.

Big Show – There’s just one more little thing. I think, to make the world’s largest lawsuit go away, the world’s largest athlete deserves the world’s largest bonus. (Trip takes a couple of pissy steps toward Big Show, Steph’s hand lands on Trip’s chest) Why you so angry, man? Look, you’re right, calm down, seriously, it’s not about the money, I’m not worried about the money. I’ve been here 18 years and I want something I’ve never had before. I’d like to be the face of the WWE!
Steph – The face of the WWE? Are you kidding me? Have you looked in the mirror lately? I don’t know what you’re…

This time Trip backs Steph off, tries to calm her down. The Shield’s music hits and out they come.
Big Show – This some kind of trick? What’s this? Do you realize what’s at stake?

Commercial

Trip – I’m sorry for the interruption, you were about to ask for something?
Big Show – Tread lightly Hunter, you know what I’ve got hanging over your head. What I deserve, what you’re going to give me, is a WWE Championship Match at Survivor Series against Randy Orton. That’s exactly what you’re going to give me.
Trip (stepping right up in Big Show’s face and talking all gravely and deep) – Listen to me. You’ve got your job back, and you’re lucky for it. Get the hell out of my ring before I leave you in a puddle of your own blood. Move.
Big Show – You sure about that?
Trip – Damn sure.
Big Show – Final answer?
Trip – Absolutely.
Big Show – Well, okay, nice doing business with you. (Big Show heads his way out of the ring as he talks) You guys drive a tough bargain, I understand why you’re the COO, it’s obvious. But I need to let you know that early tomorrow morning my attorney will be in touch with the Board of Directors, then I will complete my task of owning all of you, so have a good night!

Big Show heads up the ramp as Steph and Trip pace in the ring and try to figure this out.

Trip – Wait! Wait!
Big Show – Yes? There something you want to tell me?
Trip – You got your match at Survivor Series.
Big Show (with a huge grin) – I’m sorry, I couldn’t really hear what you said. What you say? Pardon?
Trip – I said you’ve got your match at Survivor Series.
Big Show – I’m tell you that I really can’t hear that well after your wife busted my ear drum a couple weeks ago. (heading to the ring) I swear sometimes I can’t hear what people are saying to me. Let me come a little closer. Could you tell me one more time, what exactly did you say?
Trip – You have your match at Survivor Series.
Big Show – You guys hear that? (Big Show into the ring, and right up in Trip’s face) How about you try one more time in a clear, coherent voice. (Big Show tips his head so his ear is facing Trip)
Trip – You have your job back, you have a WWE Championship Match at Survivor Series against Randy Orton.
Big Show – That wasn’t that hard, now was it fella? Wanna shake on it?
Trip – Since you work for me again, I only see it fair that you step in this ring and compete tonight like everyone else, so I’m going to put you in a little handicap match against a few friends of mine here.
Big Show – Of course you are.
Trip – In that handicap match, it won’t just be these three men, but the man who will beat you at Survivor Series, Randy Orton.

Orton to the ring as Big Show removes his jacket and tie, then un buttons his cuffs and collar. Trip talks to The Shield and Orton before the bell.

All four into the ring at the bell. Big Show fighting against Ambrose, then Reigns and Orton. Big Show on Rollins, but then Reigns spears Big Show and he’s down. They all stomp and beat on Big Show. They rip his shirt off, then Orton gets right down into Big Show’s face as Trip and Steph screech from outside. Orton yells at The Shield to put Big Show through the mat, but Big Show kicks Reigns and fights back. Ambrose and Rollins try to suplex Big Show, but he suplexes them. Big Show faces Orton, but then Kane’s music hits and he comes out in a suit and tie!

Big Show pushes out of an RKO, Rollins takes Big Show drop from up top. RKO on Big Show as Rollins limps into the ring. Kane tosses a chair into the ring, Rollins catches it beautifully. Kane slides more chairs in and the ref calls for the bell.

Winner – Big Show via DQ (3:04)

Ambrose, Rollins and Orton beat on Big Show with chairs. Announce is cleared by Kane and King called for them to flee. Reigns grabs the bottom level of the stairs and nails Big Show with them. They regroup and plan, then they grab Big Show. Ambrose and Rollins line up, then Reigns is there and they very carefully triple bomb Big Show through announce. Big Show is rolled off the table to the floor. Orton gets down in Big Show’s face, strap in hand, and talks smack to Big Show. Orton and The Shield stand over Big Show and welcome him back as Steph and Trip stand back with Kane standing behind them.

    Hey, welcome to the WNW RAW OTP!

    • Alex Gallardo

      It’s always nice to be on this site. Especially after losing brain cells reading what the smarks say on other sites.

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

        We really try to stay on point and keep things honest here.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Now I’ve had someone tell me to whack off Hogan and call me a fanboy, plus everyone seems to be obsessed with commenting on my new profile picture.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Well, it is banging! As for the trolls, they fall under the Wizard’s First Rule: People are stupid.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I know that, but I don’t understand why they have to comment on it. It isn’t a very big deal.

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

            Well, I have to say I was holding my fingers back, but since you mentioned Miley…

          • Alex Gallardo

            I just got tired of having Hulk Hogan as my profile picture. Plus I loved her VMA performance.

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

            I can understand, and you have to stay true to you.

          • Alex Gallardo

            What does that mean?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That you can’t force yourself to kowtow to other’s ideals they think you should be.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I never do. I like being myself. I don’t do things for other people.

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

            You and Miley, it makes sense.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I do love how she’s not afraid to be who she really is. She’s a hard worker and a pretty smart girl if you look past all that twerking.

          • Mike McCarthy

            I went as Hannah Montana for Halloween about 5 years back…..thought I’d throw that strange fact out there

          • Alex Gallardo

            You went as Hannah Montana? LOL now that’s pretty cool. I don’t think I would look very good in her VMA outfit though.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I enjoyed Raw last week. I just hope they can keep it up which normally doesn’t happen a lot in WWE.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed, but if Smackdown is any indication, then we should see another great show this week.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Good, WWE always tends to veer off track after they start doing good again.

  • Danny Philippi

    Hello everyone in the WNW universe. I am Danny welcoming you all to this week’s Raw Watch Party. Hope Raw does well in the midst of seniority holding serve in both world championship departments as well as the Midwest feud playing out at Green Bay on ESPN.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Danny! You stole my thunder!

  • Xavier

    What’s good everyone

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Xavier, glad to see you man!

      • Xavier

        Good to be seen lol. How you been?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Sick all day, but on the mend. These parties always fill me with a bit more pep!

          • Xavier

            That sucks bro. But hopefully this RAW has the remedy for you

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s Raw Watch Party! After both Raw and Smackdown putting on superior shows last week, I have some high hopes for this week! Hopefully my body can hold up, as my oldest son gave my whole family a stomach flu.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’m sick too. I’ve had to be in my bed all day which is never fun.

  • Mike McCarthy

    The pressure’s on this week for WWE to deliver a worthy follow-up to last weeks monster Raw

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We open with Josh Mathews welcoming us to the App. He’s shown Touting the backstage crew on his phone but is not visible to the camera. BREAKING: He announces that CM Punk will be opening tonights episode of Raw!

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

      Dang! You with the app is beating me with the Pre-RAW Commercial!

      • Mike McCarthy

        LOL! They normally announce the opening segment on the App around 7:30

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

          And the Pre-RAW Commercial is within 10 minutes of the start of the show.

          • Mike McCarthy

            ahhh, I normally don’t see it cause I can’t stand NCIS

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

            I spend that time getting ready for RAW and getting little things done. Others in the house like NCIS, so I suffer through. Not everyone in my house likes wrestling, so it’s a trade off.

          • Mike McCarthy

            I just don’t understand why people like it, there’s about 15 shows on TV just like it

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Maybe it is just my love of the service and legal dramas, but I love NCIS. Granted, I also love Abby, the gothic lab agent…

          • Mike McCarthy

            If you like legal dramas you should check out Suits on USA, love that show.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I do watch Suits! There aren’t many shows on USA I miss.

          • Mike McCarthy

            All the originals are pretty good, Burn Notice was probably one of their best shows, still hoping Graceland can fill the void left by it.

          • The Breaker

            I loved Burn Notice, though I’ll admit to not having yet seen the ending. Monk was great as well. Psych is one of the funniest shows in a while.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I can’t wait for the Musical episode! I’m a sucker for musicals!

          • Mike McCarthy

            the ending was really good, though I couldn’t fully enjoy it because I was so upset it was ending

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Same here. I wish that they would do a spin off show around Sam and Jesse!

          • Mike McCarthy

            Same here! The movie they did with Sam was awesome!!!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Granted, I am a Bruce Campbell mark!

          • The Breaker

            Who isn’t?

          • Mike McCarthy

            It’s the chin!!

    • Alex Gallardo

      You’re really good with these app updates. I know I would never want to have that job.

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

        He keeps this up and we might have to give him a job!

        • Alex Gallardo

          He deserves it. It takes a lot to even open the WWE app. I just go on their to vote for the polls during Raw.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Agreed sis! Wait, he has one on the sister site!

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

            But I mean we should discuss him getting super powers over here. But we can discuss that later.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye. I’ll remind you.

          • Mike McCarthy

            well if you’re giving out super powers I’ll take invisibility please!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            All out of that pervy power. How about flame manipulation?

    • Danny Philippi

      It is better that CM Punk is opening Raw tonight than to have Daniel Bryan. Daniel has had his time in the main event spotlight but it’s Punk’s time on that the Survivor Series is around the bend.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Though I love Daniel Bryan, it’s about time WWE reminded the audience that CM Punk is one of the “Top 3″ guys, something they didn’t do having him rival with Ryback

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I love these app updates! Thanks for keeping us in the loop!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Good Evening Everybody. I am anxiously awaiting the start of Raw. DST has thrown me for a loop here in Trinidad however as Raw will now start from 9 pm and finish at midnight.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ugh! I wish we would just abolish DST. It serves very little purpose.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Heheh true I am still going to try and enjoy Raw tonight and see if I can make it to midnight

  • The Breaker

    Greetings everyone! I’m not even going to try to figure out what might happen tonight, given how unpredictable the creative direction was last week.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Unpredictability is good. As long as it isn’t overdone (like what Russo did in WCW) it can get people invested in the show.

      • The Breaker

        Yep. A lack of interesting story lines is the main reason why a lot of people just can’t get into TNA.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I agree, but I think I can call two matches that will be on tonight: The Usos vs. The Shield and Roman Reigns vs. Big E. Langston.

      • The Breaker

        Safe bets.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Especially after SD! They left that wide open. I see the Shield going over the Usos and Big E. by DQ over Reigns.

          • The Breaker

            Or, they could further hint at the underlying tension between The Shield and have some miscommunication in their match. Maybe they could interfere in Big E’s match and it irritates Reigns.

  • Danny Philippi

    Tonight should be the night that The Shield start to create major tension. For them to be together for almost a year is impressive, but now with the Wyatt Family building momentum and Dean and Roman wanting individual aspirations, I think it is time to split the Shield.

    • Xavier

      I hope so, I really think Roman Reigns, not Ambrose will be the biggest star to come out that group

      • K!NG

        Been saying that for awhile now

      • Nick K

        I think they’ll all do very well but i see Dean Ambrose going on to be the biggest star as a top heel for a long time. Not sure if Reigns has the Mic skills and charisma to be a top stat, id say he’s behind both Rollins and Ambrose in those aspects and obviously they’re also better in ring. In most of their promos Reigns is usually relegated to screaming believe in the shield. As said though i see all 3 being successful on their own but other than having a good look Reigns trails the others and as were seeing with Ryback and Daniel Bryan having a good look isnt enough anymore

        • Xavier

          I disagree, I think Reigns is ahead of Rollins, Rollins comes across as more of a bumper to me. I agree he’s not better then Ambrose but I do believe he has a higher ceiling.

          • Justin Mayo

            I’d say Rollins is the new answer to Jeff Hardy, with the excitement and unpredictability, while Reigns may be the New Kane, the powerful workhorse that can just go in any situation

          • Justin Mayo

            I’d say Rollins is the new answer to Jeff Hardy, with the excitement and unpredictability, while Reigns may be the New Kane, the powerful workhorse that can just go in any situation

          • Nick K

            Reigns is not ahead of Rollins in the ring thats not even debatable lol. Rollins had that one big bump at tic but other than that i can’t see how you could come to that conclusion. See Rollins work as ROH champion and even not champion and you’ll be rethinking that opinion.

          • Nick K

            Reigns is not ahead of Rollins in the ring thats not even debatable lol. Rollins had that one big bump at tic but other than that i can’t see how you could come to that conclusion. See Rollins work as ROH champion and even not champion and you’ll be rethinking that opinion.

          • Xavier

            Nope, I don’t need to rethink anything. I’ve seen Rollins in ROH. But this is the WWE, Reigns has been better then Rollins in the WWE thus far.

          • Nick K

            NXT is WWE which i also mentioned but it doesn’t matter, the work he did in ROH doesn’t stop existing because you’ve decided it doesn’t matter. Reigns has benefited from being in the shield because he hasn’t had to work too many singles matches as his move set is extremely limited and he’s still quite green. I’ve been watching him since he was leakee in fcw and while he’s better now he’s not even close to his fellow shield members in any category really. You’ve been better lately it wasn’t that long ago you were hating on “internet” guys along with Justin lal im feeling like that’s what’s going on here. Sounds more like you hope reigns ends up the biggest star and if he does good for him but he’s green, he’s done well and had some good moments but he’s still green, way behind Rollins and Ambrose in ring work, if you can’t see that you can’t be taken seriously.

          • Xavier

            When did I ever say his work in ROH didn’t exist? And what Internet guys was I hating on in your eyes? Being great in ROH doesn’t always translate into becoming the biggest star in the WWE. And by no means am I knocking Tyler Black, I think he’s good. But I think Reigns right now is just as good. He brings a lot of energy to the Shield, I also believe he has a higher ceiling then him as well. That’s not to say that Black won’t be a singles star. And yes your correct, Reigns has benefited from being in the Shield, you’ll get no argument there, but he has improved leaps and bounds since last November.

          • Xavier

            When did I ever say his work in ROH didn’t exist? And what Internet guys was I hating on in your eyes? Being great in ROH doesn’t always translate into becoming the biggest star in the WWE, they are two totally different promotions that cater to two entirely different audiences. And by no means am I knocking Tyler Black, I think he’s good if not a little better. But I think Reigns right now is just as good. He brings a lot of energy to the Shield, I also believe he has a higher ceiling then him as well. That’s not to say that Black won’t be a singles star. And yes your correct, Reigns has benefited from being in the Shield, you’ll get no argument there, but he has improved leaps and bounds since last November.

          • Xavier

And yes your correct, Reigns has benefited from being in the Shield, you’ll get no argument there, but he has improved leaps and bounds since last November.

      • Courtney Kertesz

        I actually agree with you, there’s been tension slowly building up in The Shield and Roman Reigns is the muscle in the group, so he probably would excel the most

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Welcome to the Party Courtney!

          • Courtney Kertesz

            Thank you

    • Lebron James

      I think they’re breaking them up way too soon. There’s so much more they can do with them. I’m probably the only one, but I would’ve loved to seen them add another member or two. I miss the good ‘ol deep factions. Like DX, NWO, and Evolution. 3 is cool, but 4+ is always better in my book. Rollins failed too stick out with The Shield, I worry that he’ll be in deep trouble once they brake up, probably gonna be in the lower mid card. Ambrose and Reigns will have no trouble becoming main eventers, those guys are gold. I say they give them a good 4 more months together, and give ‘em a triple threat match at ‘Mania.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We’re back to Josh Mathews he’s promoting WWE 2K14 making it very noticeable he has no idea what he’s talking about, he puts over the WWE Youtube channel and all the exclusives they feature on it. They then cut to a “30 Second Fury: WWE 2K14 Edition” showing highlights of the 30 Years of WrestleMania mode.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’m still on that 60 minute iron man match between Shawn and Bret.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That has to be a brutal match! Is it the full amount of time?

        • Mike McCarthy

          No, but it’s still really long

          • Alex Gallardo

            It isn’t? Then how long is it?

          • Mike McCarthy

            well it follows the time frames, but it jumps to certain times pending on when you finish the objectives. About 10 minutes in the match I reached the 15 minute mark

          • Alex Gallardo

            Oh good. I started it for a little, but then I had to go somewhere so I left the game. That’s much better to know.

  • Danny Philippi

    On Monday Night Countdown, they showed Mike Daniels, a defensive lineman for Green Bay, high school wrestling tape. Which current NFL player do you want to see
    mix it up in the ring and which current WWE superstar do you want to take it to the gridiron?

    • Mike McCarthy

      It’d be pretty cool to see The Rock go back to football, even if it’s just for one season

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Suh in the ring, as I have heard he is a dirty player and could make that work in the WWE. And as for the WWE star in the NFL… I have to say Big E., as he seems to be the best built for it.

  • Xavier

    So it looks like Punk vs Luke Harper will open the show

    • Danny Philippi

      A concept of a match starting out WWE Raw. Color me shocked, lol.

      • Xavier

        Happened last week, maybe we’ll get lucky again

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

          When I set up for RAW Results, I always have a video first, but I’m thrilled when I have to change it.

          • Xavier

            Do you really get to enjoy RAW while recapping or do you usually go back and watch it again later?

  • Mike McCarthy

    Raw hasn’t even started yet and I’ve already received 14 emails from Disqus….

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’s why I keep it to one a day! I have Disqus only email a daily update.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I get the daily one but for some reason I also get individual ones

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Go into Disqus’ settings, and there should be an option for you to turn off the individual notifications.

          • Mike McCarthy

            You are my savior.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Tech support is one of my many hats! Just not for the site itself!

  • Danny Philippi

    Ladies and gents, let’s get ready for some Raw! In three, two, and one.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE app Update: Mathews questions what will happen when CM Punk opens…In comes Kofi Kingston, he says to stay tuned to the WWE App because he has a surprise he says it might involve this (held up his shirt) but you’ll have to stay to find out.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’s going to be the Shop Pitchman tonight, I know it!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here we go! Excitement is really high this week, as we are at 90 before it begins!

  • The Breaker

    I wonder if they’ll keep Bryan off TV for a couple weeks to sell the attack by the Wyatts.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nah, he’ll save Punk from an attack tonight.

    • Xavier

      Probably not likely, Bryan may end up running in on this match

  • JJ

    Hoping WWE can duplicate a quality show like last week, we will see.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I’ll admit its a good way to get The Wyatts over, by having them feud with 2 of the top guys in the WWE today

  • The Breaker

    Yes JBL, crazed, megalomaniac cult leaders are good for business!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Amen! Look at CM Punks’ SES days!

      • Xavier

        That was my favorite version of Punk. If Austin ever returns (not likely) and feuds with Punk, Punk should definitely go back to that gimmick

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    So Bray’s Devil Will It Be Triple H, Vince or Stephanie?

    • K!ng

      Linda

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That isn’t all of the names being tossed around! Speculation is that James Mitchell, AJ Lee, Kane, and others could be behind it!

      • JJ

        I don’t think the E is going to get James Mitchell ha. AJ lee seems way too much like a stretch. I think it’s going to be Vince.

    • The Breaker

      It could be Heyman.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Thats true I almost forgot that Heyman referred to himself as Satan at HIAC

  • Danny Philippi

    I personally think that Bray Wyatt is being set up as the successor to the Undertaker as far as the mind games is concerned.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I like when Raw starts off with a match. I would prefer that it be a crusierweight one but just having a fast paced and exciting match to start off the show sets the crowd and the show off on a good note.

    • Xavier

      There was actually talk a year or so back of rebooting that division and having a hour long show and building it around Sin Cara. Not likely too happen now with Cara proving to be a flop

      • Mike McCarthy

        No but there’s still hope with Tyson Kidd and Evan Bourne coming back from injuries

      • Alex Gallardo

        They should still check out the indy scene. While it may not have the best main event talent Japan and Mexico have great talent for that division.

        • Xavier

          I agree. I read from another source that WWE is looking closely at talent from Mexico

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I wouldn’t be surprised, as ADR isn’t the Latino draw WWE hoped he would be.

          • Xavier

            Agreed. They probably should of let him keep the mask on him and let him do his thing with that.

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

        Have never seen a wrestler get injured the way Sin Cara does!

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Do you think Kallisto (former Samuray Del Sol) has a chance of eventually filling the void that will be left by Rey/Sin Cara

        • Xavier

          Perhaps, I loved his stuff in AAA & Dragon Gate. He’ll need a lot of time on NXT though to adopt to the WWE’s style of wrestling. Hopefully he picks it up pretty quickly. I haven’t seen his stuff on NXT yet

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Brodie….errr I mean Harper has one of the sickest clotheslines in the WWE Today.

  • Danny Philippi

    NHL update: Ducks 2 Rangers 0 in the first period.

  • Justin Mayo

    Hey guys, sorry I’m late! lost track of time because daylight savings >_<

    • The Breaker

      It took you a whole day to figure it out?

      • Justin Mayo

        was also cooking/serving dinner! off my back >_<

        • The Breaker

          It’s 2013, no excuses. :P

          • Justin Mayo

            oh, my appologies, I forgot we have ready made dinner cubes now we just add a drop of water and make a cheeseburger! :-P

          • The Breaker

            You mean you still have an oven in your house? Keep up with the times!

          • Justin Mayo

            I have a house??? What the hell man, have I been living in this trailer for nothing??

          • The Breaker

            You mean they haven’t delivered your house-in-a-box yet?

          • Justin Mayo

            No, but I’m sure the flying delivery truck just broke down or something…hopefully not in midair, though!

          • Justin Mayo

            No, but I’m sure the flying delivery truck just broke down or something…hopefully not in midair, though!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Nah, I paid off the driver. Breaker is getting it instead!

          • Justin Mayo

            well you’re nothing more than a…a…a cotton headed ninny muggins!!!

          • The Breaker

            I love it when a plan comes together!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Mayonaise! Good to see you man!

      • Justin Mayo

        you too man! we need a convo this week on facebook, I’m trying to play emerald and I just feel too damn old…

    • Xavier

      You were playing Mario goat cart, weren’t you? Lol

      • Justin Mayo

        goat kart? yes, i was driving daniel bryan around a race track!

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

      Mayo!

      • Justin Mayo

        Kendra!

  • Justin Mayo

    I must say, being my first time catching the gator roll…that’s pretty sick!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      An interesting move to say the least!

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

      It’s very cool, and perfect for his character.

      • Justin Mayo

        now if only they came out to music from Deliverance! I kid, I kid :-P

  • Danny Philippi

    Not too many NBA games tonight, although the Rockets and Clippers meet later tonight.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Harper looking quite nice in his first singles match on the main roster!

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Punk is back in the ring dominating but quickly turns his attention to Bray and Rowan and turns right into a Big Boot!! Bray is shown smiling, Harper picking him up to his feet, blows to Punk and Punk to the corner. Body shots to Punk but Punk comes back with Flair chops, Harper knocks him down and gets a two-count and Cole sends us back to USA!

  • JJ

    Punk chewing blue bubble gum :)

    • Danny Philippi

      No, Punk is chewing Fruit Stripe Gum that he had from 1989. God bless Lord Alfred Hayes.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Harper’s really making up for that terrible spot at HIAC

  • JJ

    Punk wins, wyatts attack after, who’s going to help DB/Miz?

    • Mike McCarthy

      After last weeks squash I sincerely hope they don’t consider Miz a viable threat in this rivalry

      • Alex Gallardo

        Miz isn’t a viable threat to a piece of paper.

      • JJ

        I know…I just keep bringing it up cause I hate miz being downgraded…DB!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          MIz was buried so far last week by Kane and Orton, he would have to be a zombie to recover from it!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          MIz was buried so far last week by Kane and Orton, he would have to be a zombie to recover from it!

    • Justin Mayo

      I am the one who helps!

    • Justin Mayo

      I am the one who helps!

  • Danny Philippi

    Botched swing neckbreaker by Punk.

  • K!NG

    the Rochester native is looking alright this evening

  • K!NG

    the Rochester native is looking alright this evening

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here come the Buzzards!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Pretty good match even though Harper looked a little stiff

  • Mike McCarthy

    Pretty good match even though Harper looked a little stiff

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the crowd is going wild to have Bryan come out!

    • Justin Mayo

      Only to go mild later when Khali comes out!

    • Justin Mayo

      Only to go mild later when Khali comes out!

  • Xavier

    This will be a really fun feud. The back & forth between Punk & Bray on the mic will be really good.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Great way to open Raw, and nice to see Punk have to use a small package to win. Helps further build Harper as a threat!

  • The Breaker

    Well there’s Bryan! Great to see them aligning, even though we all knew it would happen.

  • Danny Philippi

    I guess Bryan and Punk have put aside their beef from ROH.

    • Xavier

      And their beef over AJ lol

    • Xavier

      And their beef over AJ lol

    • Justin Mayo

      Didn’t you hear? anything that happened longer than a month prior in the WWE doesn’t count!

      • Alex Gallardo

        Well that was in a different company. Plus Bryan is babyface now.

        • Justin Mayo

          nah, I mean how they think we have no attention spans or long term memory

  • Courtney Kertesz

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Finally the moment I’ve been waiting for Punk and Bryan teaming up against the Wyatts

    • Justin Mayo

      took you long enough to find the page :-P

      • Courtney Kertesz

        Yeah I know :p

        • Justin Mayo

          jeez, I coulda taken a nap and still been waiting :-P

          • Courtney Kertesz

            You are SOOO funny :p

          • Justin Mayo

            ya know, for as sarcasticly as you always say that, you’re always laughing :-P

          • Courtney Kertesz

            Lol :p

  • JJ

    David Otunga’s “irrelevant opinion” as he’s the only one in the company aside from office people with a law degree lol.

  • Mike McCarthy

    BREAKING WWE APP UPDATE: You can now vote for Randy Orton’s opponent tonight! Ziggler, Langston or Miz

    • The Breaker

      I just know it won’t be Miz.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        If people watched SD, then it just might.

        • The Breaker

          Darn it Jesse, you’ve always got to interrupt with your logic!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye, as I am the “Bastion of Logic and Reason”!

    • Xavier

      Most will disagree, but I wanna see what Big E can do against a main eventer

      • Justin Mayo

        Whatcha gonna do, brother, when the Big Ending ends abruptly on you!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I agree. I think it would be an interesting matchup from a booking perspective as well. Big E. is getting a big push, but what would WWE do if the fans voted him in?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Punk and Bryan will be able to pull off a good feud with the Family

  • Xavier

    I just noticed that when you post something, you can see that someone is typing a reply to your post. Interesting, when did that start?

    • Alex Gallardo

      I noticed that too. It started for me right on this thread.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I think it’s new

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It does? I haven’t seen that! Mobile or CPU?

      • Justin Mayo

        CPU

    • Justin Mayo

      I don’t know, but it’s very interesting to say the least!

  • Robbie

    Hey everyone :)

  • K!NG

    Miz should just be heel already.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I enjoyed Smack Down’s Main Event Last Week. I hope the return match can be good on Raw.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We see Hornswoggle getting food from catering……..you guessed it! in comes Ryback! He gives him sweet potatoes “sweet potatoes for a sweet little guy” he then says what’s dinner without desert? Smashes a cupcake in Hornswoggles face. In comes Santino, he says why don’t you pick on somebody your own size….not me, HIM! Khali then walks up behind Ryback, Ryback says “I plan on it” and walks away, Santino and Khali then eat the cupcake off of Hornswoggles face

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      Oh Dear God Khali vs Ryback? Really?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Yeah WWE is forgetting that push they had with him and his feud with Punk.

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

      Ugh, Ryback vs Khali? Please, don’t make me write that match!

      • Mike McCarthy

        I don’t think anybody would even want to READ about that match!

    • K!NG

      lol rybully

    • The Breaker

      “FINALLY, THE MATCH I’VE BEEN ACHING TO SEE!!” …. said no one.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

    • Danny Philippi

      I’d rather watch Tampa v. Jacksonville in a blizzard in December than Ryback v. Khali. Geez man.

      • Justin Mayo

        …I’d rather watch Twilight

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’d rather have a colonoscopy without sedation!

        • Justin Mayo

          thought that’s your biweekly guilty pleasure? :-P

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’d rather have a colonoscopy without sedation!

  • Cubed56

    Sorry I’m late, was suppose to be somewhere else tonight, but plans changed. Anyways, I think punk and Bryan would make one of the best tag teams of all time.

  • Cubed56

    Sorry I’m late, was suppose to be somewhere else tonight, but plans changed. Anyways, I think punk and Bryan would make one of the best tag teams of all time.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Good to see you Cubed!

      • Cubed56

        The feeling is mutual

    • Xavier

      No game tonight?

      • Cubed56

        I was going to go, but I had a guy at work offer me $1000, for my tickets. Since I’ve got season tickets, I sold them in a heartbeat

        • Xavier

          Damn, hell yeah I would of sold my tickets as well. C.R.E.A.M

          • Cubed56

            Right, I almost crapped my pants when he handed me the cash, I thought he was joking at first

    • Alex Gallardo

      No… no… no. Bryan and Punk would not be one of the best tag teams of all time.

      • Cubed56

        And you think this why?

        • Alex Gallardo

          They do not have the same tag team chemistry as The Dudley Boys, The Outsiders, Hardys, etc.

        • Alex Gallardo

          They do not have the same tag team chemistry as The Dudley Boys, The Outsiders, Hardys, etc.

          • Cubed56

            Not right now, but they could

          • Cubed56

            Not right now, but they could

          • Alex Gallardo

            Not really. They would not get over as a tag team.

          • Cubed56

            Did you see the reaction they got as they stood in the ring together tonight? They are both already over, so they would easily be over as a team

          • Cubed56

            Did you see the reaction they got as they stood in the ring together tonight? They are both already over, so they would easily be over as a team

          • Alex Gallardo

            The Rock and SCSA got a huge reaction when they were in the ring together, does that mean they should have been a tag team?

          • Cubed56

            They had great in ring chemistry, so yes they would’ve made a good team.

          • Justin Mayo

            not to mention, if stories would have been different, probably WOULD have been a team- both had issues with DX at times, coulda been Austin + Rock v DX. Instant AE dream tag match

          • Cubed56

            Agreed

          • Justin Mayo

            OH YOU DIDN’T KNOW?

            IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU KNOW!

          • Cubed56

            Ha, well played

          • Justin Mayo

            oh god…imagine the cross impersonations that would arise…-cries-

          • Cubed56

            Would’ve been epic to see

          • Justin Mayo

            Even if only to see Austin running around like X-Pac!!

          • Justin Mayo

            not to mention, if stories would have been different, probably WOULD have been a team- both had issues with DX at times, coulda been Austin + Rock v DX. Instant AE dream tag match

          • Alex Gallardo

            Just because two people have great in ring chemistry doesn’t mean they should team up.

          • Cubed56

            I’m not saying that they should’ve, I’m saying they would of made a great team if they would’ve ever been paired up

          • Alex Gallardo

            They should not have been in a tag team. They worked their best against each other.

          • Cubed56

            I’m agreeing with you, do you not understand that

          • Alex Gallardo

            You said that they would have made a great team if SCSA and the Rock paired up. You did not say anywhere in that comment that you agree with me.

    • Justin Mayo

      Welcome back, my brother!

  • JJ

    I really hope Sandow can get the belt off cena at survivor series…I know I take heat for it, but I really can’t stand the stale Cena, and one promo isn’t going to change that. They should have jumped on the opportunity to have him be heel a few years back, then he wouldn’t be so stale as a face now.

  • Xavier

    Michael Cole – Paul, are you there

    Paul Heyman – No I’m NOT here.

    LMAO

    • Justin Mayo

      No, I’M here, YOU’RE there! i’m not there, and you’re not here!

    • Mike McCarthy

      whoops posted the same exact thing without reading this, my bad (go cries in the corner)

      • Xavier

        Lol

  • K!NG

    any match with Khali no matter who its with is just bad

    • JJ

      I agree 100% with one exception for the giant swing ha.

  • Mike McCarthy

    “Are you there Paul?”
    “No…I’m not.”
    you gotta love this guy

    • Alex Gallardo

      That one line was more funny than any of Cena’s lame jokes.

  • Courtney Kertesz

    I can defiantly see for Survivor Series Punk, Daniel Bryan and the Miz vs. The Wyatts

    • The Breaker

      Sounds good, but they probably have a spot for Miz on the pre-show analysts table.

      • Courtney Kertesz

        Yeah, you’re probably right

      • Justin Mayo

        Nah, he deserves better…maybe a seat usher?

      • Justin Mayo

        Nah, he deserves better…maybe a seat usher?

        • The Breaker

          He can host a pre-show dance contest between Fandango and The Great Khali.

          • Courtney Kertesz

            Lol, that would be entertaining, The Great Khali probably would win

          • Justin Mayo

            Or a karaoke contest between Khali and a returning Jillian Hall!

          • The Breaker

            Haha, I would pop huge for that.

  • The Breaker

    Heyman can sell emotion on a crappy cell phone better than most of the roster can do with a live mic.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Paul is an emotional wreck! I love it!

  • Justin Mayo

    Hey Cole, don’t forget to remind Heyman how to download the WWE app!

    update- he totally did…

    • Anand Vijayakumar

      Even a 3 year old knows how to download an app from the app store these days and this moron explains it as if it is rocket science every week on raw. i feel like jumping off my house window everytime he does that…

      • Justin Mayo

        it’s his new catchphrase now, replacing “can i have your attention please!? i have just recieved an email…etc”

  • Alex Gallardo

    Have fun writing this Kendra.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, that kind of confirms it for me! Heyman is the Devil!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, that kind of confirms it for me! Heyman is the Devil!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, that kind of confirms it for me! Heyman is the Devil!

    Oh Dear God. Save Us

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Oh Dear God. Save Us

  • K!NG

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Snack Break

  • JJ

    I had so much hope for Ryback with nexus and just out of it…then the injury and now…this…I really thought he could have been something nice.

    • JJ

      Reminded me of the 90s apa style wrestler.

    • K!NG

      Being that hes been in the main event scene for a year i think he’ll be fine

      • JJ

        He’s been there, but it’s been so forced, it should be more natural. Notice how there’s almost always Goldberg chants..

    • K!NG

      Being that hes been in the main event scene for a year i think he’ll be fine

  • Danny Philippi

    Checking to see if MNF has kickoffed.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I like Ryback, but it’s time to start listening to some Miley.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I like Ryback, but it’s time to start listening to some Miley.

  • K!NG

    we all know vince is the devil dont u remember his feud w HBK when he went into the church lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Does anyone else wish this match happens entirely during the break and we get highlights after the break?

    • The Breaker

      “And folks, THIS is the type of action you can only get on the WWE App!”

    • Xavier

      Speak for yourself man, this is gonna be a trainwreck, I love watching trainwrecks lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    Now that I mentioned nexus curious, what’s been happening with wade barrett?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Visa issues.

      • JJ

        That really sucks I hope he can get them resolved, I’d like to see him get the title off of Curtis Axel honestly

      • JJ

        I’ve always kind of wondered why superstars from England and Canada don’t just get duel citizenship, you would think the process for those countries wouldn’t be as difficult.

        • Mike McCarthy

          those were my exact thoughts

  • K!NG

    wow my girlfriend just said oh ryback and kahli this should be good…. god help me

      …I can’t think of any appropriate responses without being a cruel ass…my sympathies, bro!

        Lol

    That’s right folks! Khali just tripped over nothing!

    …..wait…..that clothesline…….it wasn’t……..it wasn’t botched…….what is life?

  • K!NG

    khali is like a turtle once on his back he is done for.

    • Xavier

      By turtle you mean Junior Dos Santos, right?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, Ryback won with his setup move? BAKA!

    • The Breaker

      So I guess they’re going back to him beating up all the backstage workers and lower card guys? *sigh*

  • The George group

    REALLY? RYBACK VS KHALI? Matches like this make me change the channel.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Welcome to the Party George! Sadly, we had to see that abomination!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Welcome to the Party George! Sadly, we had to see that abomination!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Big Show is banned for life but we have month old highlights of him, WWE Logic rules!!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Is Raw going to air from England Next Week? If not when will Raw air from England this month?

  • Xavier

    Del Rio/Kofi 1000

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Things are going meh tonight…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Things are going meh tonight…

      • Xavier

        Lol, I had the same reaction

  • Xavier

    Del Rio/Kofi 1000

  • Courtney Kertesz

    No one can keep a giant away for too long, I think Big Show will be back

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Has a banishment or “firing” ever kept someone away?

      • Courtney Kertesz

        Not really, I might be wrong, but I think back in the day they did something similar to Stone Cold and he kept returning.

    • JJ

      Maybe it’ll be the same destroy the car/truck/bus outside…

      • Courtney Kertesz

        Yeah, that would be entertaining though. Actually anything that involves Big Show is entertaining.

  • Danny Philippi

    Kofi Kingston needs a refurbishment before he gets demoted to Main Event or Superstars.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I may be in the minority but I would like to see The Shield get a little bit of comeuppance on The Big Show for costing them the Tag Titles

  • K!NG

    Man i wish they would do something more with Kofi.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Kofi Kingston is pretty boring.

  • JJ

    Well thus far I have to say the night isn’t as strong as last, but there is still 20 minutes to make the first hour stronger.

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

      that’s not going to happen with kofi

      • JJ

        Or del rio lol. bathroom break.

      • K!NG

        why not? he may not win but his in ring work is more desirable then most in wwe

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We’re back with Josh Mathews and he says Kofi Kingston will be in action later, he then mentions the surprise Kofi has from earlier on the App he then cuts to Kofi selling WWE Merch!! He points to various merch and eventually points to Bray Wyatt’s hat and says “if Bray Wyatt is from a swamp then why does he wear a stylish fedora?” …good point, he then shows off merch from himself and other name all the way to Randy Savage, banners, shirts and lots more! This weeks promo code is “KOFI” and will give you 25% off at WWEShop.com!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That stinks! I wanted to see it on the show!

      • Mike McCarthy

        I’m sure they’ll show it again on air

  • Alex Gallardo

    Kofi vs. ADR.=BORING.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Though we’ve seen this many times Kofi always has something exciting to offer

  • The Breaker

    Kofi and ADR are both strong workers, but it sucks that I just couldn’t care less about either of them.

  • Xavier

    Kofi pretty much missed Del Rio with that lol. Glad he’s okay though

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

    Does Del Rio still have a rematch with Cena?

    • The Breaker

      Yeah.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sadly, he does.

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

        *sigh*

        • Justin Mayo

          -pats back- there there, he’ll lose his rematch soon enough and be gone from the WHC picture

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

            LOL

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I know the feeling man. And while Cena does seem to bring out the best in ADR, I hope Sandow is added in to make it a Triple Threat.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, WWE is really trying to pander to the Latino audience with the flag waving by ADR!

    • K!NG

      That is why del rio’s title win was in Miami due to the Latino Community. Ironically though he lost it the same place he won it.

  • K!NG

    Del Rio does that German suplex just as good as any i’ve seen

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Very crisp! Reminds me of Angle’s German!

  • Xavier

    Has Kofi ever beatin’ Del Rio?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      One moment, I’ll check my database.

      • Xavier

        Because I swear they’ve fought atleast 20 times and I can’t recall Kofi ever going over

        • Jesse Sherwood

          July 18th, 2011, November 5th, 2012, and December 14th, 2012

          • The Breaker

            I do remember there being a stretch that Del Rio lost to almost everyone he faced but they never received a title shot.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            The first one was the WWE Title tourney after Punk “left”, the other two was a pseudo feud right before his face turn.

          • Xavier

            Interesting. I don’t remember any of that lol

    • Danny Philippi

      Definitely not tonight. That’s for sure.

  • Justin Mayo

    Ok, you guys know my strong dislike for AlBOREto…but that gut kick looked amazing, at least this week.

    • Xavier

      His kicks always look lethal

      • K!NG

        sounds that way anyways.

      • Justin Mayo

        yeah, but most of the time, he’s too obvious with the slaps, or there’s a bad angle and we see the daylight. that one just looked spot on, though!

  • Courtney Kertesz

    Is it just me, or does it seem like WWE is downgrading on Kofi’s character? They’ve been doing that with other superstars, too

    • The Breaker

      Kofi and so many other guys on the midcard don’t really even have a character. Like Ziggler. He’s just “The Show-Off”… what kind of gimmick is that?

      • Courtney Kertesz

        Yeah, that’s true. I guess Ziggler’s gimmick would be The show stealer. Lol I remember when he was in the Spirit squad.

        • The Breaker

          And he was Kerwin White’s (Chavo Guerrero) caddie!

          • Courtney Kertesz

            Oh, yeah now I remember that, too

    • JJ

      Even though I really doubt they’d do it, I think his character needs to be shaken up some..whether heel turn or add to tag team with Xavier woods that’d be nice

      • Justin Mayo

        Truth, Kofi, Langston, and Henry could be the New Nation!

        • JJ

          Well I know Xavier is on the short list to move up to the main roster, so that’s why I suggested, but a new nation to combat the real americans, would be nice. Real Americans could add a few from the NXT group, dawson being the forefront, but they could find 1-2 more.

          • Justin Mayo

            or, add in Xavier, make all 5 last till next year, and you have a homegrown SS team all set and waiting for a team to beat! :-P

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Where exactly are they planning to go with this Big Show kayfabe lawsuit.

  • JJ

    Packers up 3-0 over bears. GO PACK GO!

  • Xavier

    Great video package here

  • JJ

    ***Breaking*** Aaron Rodgers has to get X-Rays currently out of game!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ouch! There goes the Packers offense!

      • JJ

        I think it’s his throwing shoulder too. He wasn’t holding either arm or hanging weird, hopefully he’ll be ok.

        • Cubed56

          It’s his non throwing shoulder

          • JJ

            Ah good, well not good, but better lol. I clicked over and they were talking and he was jogging off so wasn’t sure.

    • Cubed56

      Possibly collarbone

  • K!NG

    best thing about the wwe app is i dont have it

    • Xavier

      Lol neither do I

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I do, but I don’t use it. They do come up with some interesting pics though!

  • Xavier

    I’m probably alone in this but I wanna see Orton/Big E

    • K!NG

      no cause ziggler and miz have been stale

      • Xavier

        True. I also wanna see how Big E fairs in a 10 minute match with one of the top guys

    • Cubed56

      The only reason I wanna see Ziggler is to see how those two work with one another now that they legit hate each other

      • Xavier

        Lol. What if Ziggler started over selling Orton’s moves, like HBK did to Hogan. That would be funny.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          AYE! I want to see it now!

        • Cubed56

          Part of the reason why I wanna see it is for that

      • Jesse Sherwood

        The last time they worked together, two weeks ago, Orton nearly killed Ziggler!

      • Justin Mayo

        They’ve had recent matches though since it all went down. good matches, but nothing to jump out of your skin over. Langston would just be a nice, fresh face, no pun intended :-P

    • Courtney Kertesz

      I voted for Big E, too

      • Xavier

        I’m hoping he wins

        • Justin Mayo

          She’s my friend from back east bro :-P she’s a bit of a mark still, but i’m trying to break that lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    No App Update for this commercial break as they’re trying to get as many votes in as possible

  • Alex Gallardo

    David Ortiz needs to make a decision. He either keeps the TNA or WWE title.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Wait, he has a TNA Title?

      • Alex Gallardo

        Yup, he got it in May from Bully Ray. Dixie brought that up after hearing WWE gave him a title.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Well, then I agree! Declare your loyalty Ortiz!

          • Alex Gallardo

            That would be hard for me to chose since I like TNA and WWE equally now.

          • JJ

            He has no choice he has to go wwe because 1 bigger company and 2 cena gave it to him and cena is from mass.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Bully gave him one to wear in May

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF alert: Bears 7 Packers 3. Brandon marshall touchdown reception.

  • Xavier

    LMAO, nice line by Orton.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I would love to wake up to Randy Orton too.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Alex, I have something I have to send you on FB! Kendra sent it to me!

      • Alex Gallardo

        Will it ruin Randy for me?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          It might, and JBL and Jericho!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          It might, and JBL and Jericho!

          • Alex Gallardo

            Send it. I don’t like Jericho and I don’t listen to the commentators.

      • Justin Mayo

        ooo i wanna see!

        • Alex Gallardo

          It’s really weird.

        • Alex Gallardo

          It’s really weird.

          • Justin Mayo

            should I be afraid?

          • Alex Gallardo

            Are you into dog-collars?

          • Justin Mayo

            i’m…ok, i’m afraid…lol

          • Alex Gallardo

            Yeah you don’t want to read it.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m sending it to him!

          • Alex Gallardo

            Do you hate him or something? He’s going to be scarred for life after reading that.

          • Justin Mayo

            probably his goal

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Nope, I like torturing people! I’d love Gitmo!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Whoa! Orton getting a bit risqué tonight!

    • Xavier

      I like it, he needs to show that side of him more often

    • Alex Gallardo

      I have to remind myself not to think bad thoughts about Randy. I won’t have another wrestler ruined for me.

  • K!NG

    ravishing randy orton?

  • The Breaker

    Orton acting like a prick really works for him.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, when a character is close to a person…

      • Mike McCarthy

        Well, when a character is close to a person you need to buy a new duffel bag.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Luckily I have a dozen!

        • Justin Mayo

          dude…i know “lol” basically should be changed to “laughing quietly to myself”…but that actually did make me snort a bit

          • Mike McCarthy

            I try my best

      • The Breaker

        My thoughts exactly!

      • The Breaker

        My thoughts exactly!

      • The Breaker

        My thoughts exactly!

      • Justin Mayo

        -walks into Slateport City mart- Excuse me, sir, how much for that Burn Heal you have there?

      • Justin Mayo

        -walks into Slateport City mart- Excuse me, sir, how much for that Burn Heal you have there?

  • Nostaljack

    Hey, y’all! I’ve never heard Orton like this. Kinda cool!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ed! Good to have you!

      • Nostaljack

        Aww, shucks, Jesse. I’m whelmed….;)

        • The Breaker

          Whelmed, but not overly?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          THE FEELS!!!

    • Xavier

      Agreed

    • Justin Mayo

      Welcome back to the psych ward, Ed! We’re breaking out the crayons and construction paper in 5 minutes

      • Nostaljack

        YES!!!! Glad I got here in time for the construction paper. I want purple!

        • Justin Mayo

          Sorry, We only have Yellow and White…figured less colors associated with darker themes, more happier moods i guess…or some similar kind of psycho babble

        • Justin Mayo

          Sorry, We only have Yellow and White…figured less colors associated with darker themes, more happier moods i guess…or some similar kind of psycho babble

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Big E.! WOOHOO!

  • Xavier

    Nice! I’m glad Big E won, fans are starting to warm up to him. I can dig it

    • Nostaljack

      Huge fan of Big E. This is cool!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Evidence the push is working!

      • Justin Mayo

        Pushed him right out the ring!

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

    This could be good!

  • K!NG

    Orton sounded like ravishing rick

    • Nostaljack

      Yeah, he did. LOL!

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

      That’s who he reminded me of, good call.

  • JJ

    Big E has been getting a lot of push lately, but he’s been actually performing it’ll be interesting to see what happens near rr and elimination chamber time.

  • The Breaker

    Miz got more votes that Ziggler? What is this crap?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Miz actually had a story with Orton. That is the only reason I can think of!

      • The Breaker

        Yeah but I didn’t expect fans to think of that!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Miz actually had a story with Orton. That is the only reason I can think of!

    • Mike McCarthy

      I think it’s just fans trying to save him from last weeks squash.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Great Orton promo and Big E wins the vote!

    • Xavier

      Agreed, I loved the cockiness Orton showed

  • Courtney Kertesz

    Yay! Big E Langston deff deserves the match, hopefully it’ll be a fair one, though.

    • The Breaker

      I could see The Shield (or maybe just Ambrose) attacking him.

      • Courtney Kertesz

        Yeah I know

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Just Reigns. They are setting something up between them.

        • Cubed56

          No, no, no, my friend, reigns is gonna turn on Ambrose and Rollins soon

        • The Breaker

          Hm, we’ll see.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Big E picks Orton up off the floor and rams him into the barricade! He throws him again! Then picks him up and throws him in the ring, Orton goes right back outside of the ring, Big E after him and Orton with shots on Big E, but Langston rams him into the barricade AGAIN! He throws Orton in the ring and gets a two-count. Whip into the corner and Langston goes for a splash in the corner but Orton counters with an elbow. Orton then whips Langston into the corner but Langston bounces back with a clothesline! Big E picks up a two-count and we head back to USA!

  • K!NG

    I already can see the shield getting involved.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Big E is doing a phenomenal job in this match!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Absolutely showing why he was the first NXT call up!

      • K!NG

        i thought the shield was called up first ?

        • Mike McCarthy

          They were each within a month from each other but I can’t remember who came first

          • K!NG

            Shield at SS and for big e it was raw night after tlc

        • Jesse Sherwood

          The Shield were, but NXT was only around a couple of months at that point and Reigns and Rollins were the only ones featured. I forgot they were NXT!

    • The Breaker

      He did great work in NXT as the champ so it’s not surprising!

  • Justin Mayo

    A little off topic, but considering what Richard posted this week, who else here thinks Jericho should take 2 entrances in the rumble this year, one as Jericho and one as Drunkicho, ALA the 3 Faces of Foley?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      NO! Just let Drunkicho be on commentary!

      • Justin Mayo

        Drunkicho and JR would be the single greatest team in commentary history, I’d think…

        • Mike McCarthy

          I’ll go with Punk and Mathews any day of the week

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Punk, Striker, and JR!

          • Mike McCarthy

            Not a big fan of Mathews it’s just Punk really laid into him when they worked together, really funny stuff

          • Justin Mayo

            Heel Punk, Drunkicho, and JR!

  • Mike McCarthy

    For those who didn’t notice just over an hour in and we’re at 450+ comments!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      On pace to break records, provided WWE doesn’t botch the second hour again! We hit 1111 last week!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      On pace to break records, provided WWE doesn’t botch the second hour again! We hit 1111 last week!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I am enjoying Big E’s matches far more than Ryback’s. WWE were pushing the wrong big guy

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF alert: Packers 10 Bears 7. James Starks long touchdown run following a blocked punt by Green Bay.

  • JJ

    Packers up 10-7 over bears after packers block a punt for good field position and a long run, both teams have backup qb’s in.

  • Xavier

    Solid match up there

  • Nostaljack

    Big E’s over. That’s what they want t happen.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Just going off topic a bit here, did anyone catch Jericho’s new web series But I’m Chris Jericho last week. I enjoyed the first 2 webisodes they were really good.

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

    Strong match! Good ending

    • Justin Mayo

      a good ending, but not a BIG ending -rimshot-

      • Mike McCarthy

        ba dum tsss

  • The Breaker

    Now Orton’s back to beating people clean. Interesting. Big E looks really good coming out of it though.

    • Nostaljack

      It’s only up from here. A good match with Orton helps tremendously.

      • Xavier

        Agreed. I’m glad the match ended clean as well. Orton is the champ and should beat people clean every so often even if he’s a heel

      • The Breaker

        Absolutely. As a fan of Ziggler I wish it were him, but Big E deserves it just as much.

      • Justin Mayo

        let’s not be hasty until we make sure there’s no backstage issues :-P

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Big E’s stock rose after that match tonight

  • Mike McCarthy

    Great match out of Big E, the amount of people that aren’t sold on Big E just largely decreased

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

    Big E put on an Amazing show with Randy Orton. I think He Belongs in the spotlight.

    • Xavier

      If he keeps performing like this with the backing of Cena he is well on his way

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Welcome to the Party Joshua! Big E. just stamped his ticket to the main event!

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

        That was why I wanted him to win the vote. I wanted to see if he belonged in the same ring with a Randy Orton level star. That match showed he does. Darkhorse Rumble winner?

  • K!NG

    why does triple H look so constipated? lol

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Are they going to beat this lawsuit thing to death?

    • Mike McCarthy

      I’m really hoping they align Big Show with Vince tonight

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

        They have to give us a pay off for all the time talking about Show being banned

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

      Yes. That is what is going to get Big Show his job back.

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

    Hey I’m not sure but I think they banned the big show

    • JJ

      ya it’s only been mentioned about 20 times in the last hour lol. I’m sure cole will update you a good 40 more times, just in case something changes in the next hour and a half.

    • Justin Mayo

      they couldn’t have! they woulda said something by now

  • Mike McCarthy

    “The hottest video game in the land”

  • Alex Gallardo

    That poll has to be rigged.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed. But remember, it was a Dot Com poll, so I’m betting the people visiting really didn’t care!

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

        I accidently voted for Miz on the app. :( I wanted to vote for Big E.

        • Xavier

          Sigh, I’ll get Michael Cole to explain it to you lol jk

    • Xavier

      Nope not at all. There has been a huge turnover of fans who watch the WWE since the Attitude Era who don’t remember those matches. A good portion of fans today didn’t grow up with Hogan, Warrior, Hart or Michaels

  • Mike McCarthy

    I voted for Trip vs. Y2J……only 8%? that was such a good match

  • Xavier

    Fans have a short term memory or just aren’t old enough to remember Hogan/Warrior & Hart/Michaels. I would of put Hogan/Warrior at #1 and Hart/Michaels at #2

  • Courtney Kertesz

    I really agree with Jerry The King Lawler, the whole banning is going too far, I think they’re trying to beat a dead horse.

  • Mike McCarthy

  • The Breaker

    Interesting how Jerry Lawler went out of his way to mention Hogan… anything to that?

    • Nostaljack

      I hope not. My fondest hope is that Hogan goes away.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I wouldn’t mind having him as an on-air role but I really don’t wanna see him a wrestle another match

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Just WWE milking that he is a free agent.

    • Xavier

      There is a lot to it. Various sources have reported that Hogan has verbally agreed to return to the WWE

      • The Breaker

        I’ve heard that, but as Richard said today in the Ask article, verbal agreements don’t necessarily amount to much. Lex Luger went to WCW in ’95 after agreeing to come to WWF.

        • Xavier

          True. But I think there is a lot of interest on both sides to get a deal worked out.

          • The Breaker

            It doesn’t really surprise me that they’re talking. Of course Vince wants him for WM30. I want to see him there too. But not in a match.

          • Xavier

            Agreed. I wouldn’t mind him interrupting a promo by Zeb & The Real Americans in a WM segment and clearing the ring of them

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I AM A REAL AMERICAN! Fight for the rights of every man!

  • JJ

    I gotta say wwe dropped the ball this week, last week was one of their best shows in a long time, and this week we have 3 boring matches in the first half of the show.

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

      but on the bright side we’re at 522 comments

  • K!NG

    Man im still debating weather or not Hogan knows best

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Hogan vs Cena at WM30……. Man I just scared myself there a little

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

      Did you have to take us with you?

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Sorry. Lol

        • Justin Mayo

          Sorry Navin, but to quote Jasper, That’s a Paddlin’

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE app Update: Mathews “So that was the match you the WWE Universe wanted to see, Big E Langston vs. the WWE Champion Randy Orton, now another champion..” in comes Curtis Axel, he says he wishes Heyman a speedy recovery and he knows that Heyman is doing whatever he can to get back to action. He once again claims that the injury reports are only rumors. He then announces that he will be facing Dolph Ziggler tonight!! He says he will prove he is the best Intercontinental Champion and that he is better than perfect!

  • JJ

    TYSON KIDD!!!!!!

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

    Tyson Kidd is back!

  • Mike McCarthy

    TYSON KIDD!!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    TYSON KIDD!!!

  • Justin Mayo

    …I think I just ruined my pants with happiness…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      WAY TOO MUCH INFORMATION!!!

      • Justin Mayo

        considering who the f— just came out to beat fandango and mrs mayo, can you blame me???

      • Alex Gallardo

        There are somethings people just need to keep to themselves.

  • Alex Gallardo

    It’s about time Tyson returned.

  • Mike McCarthy

    So they’re showing Natalya and Tyson Kidd getting married yet just a week ago she was dating Khali…WWE Logic FTW!!!

  • Xavier

    Tyosn Kidd sighting. Hope he brought a personality with him this time around.

  • JJ

    Ok, Tyson kidd can make up for horrendous fandango and summer rae

  • The Breaker

    Kidd is back?! I wasn’t even paying attention and assumed the music was just for Natalya!

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

    I must be strange I liked Summer rae on Raw last week.

    • Mike McCarthy

      she’s good for a diva, people just don’t realize that divas aren’t very good..

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Did Michael Cole really just call Summer Rae Impressive?

  • David Jr.

    I’m late to the party did i miss anything?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      An awesome match between Big E. and Randy Orton!

  • Cubed56

    This match is happening because an incident on total divas

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, still a better setup than most matches over the past few months!

      • Cubed56

        Agreed

  • The Breaker

    Maybe Tyson Kidd will be more relevant this time around, given that he’s on Total Divas.

  • JJ

    Sandow save us from Cena.

  • Justin Mayo

    Great match, great end, great to have him back!

    • Mike McCarthy

      ….but what about Los Locales :’(

      • Justin Mayo

        shhhhhhh that wasn’t 2 weeks ago, nobody’ll remember that! let’s pretend it never happened!

        • Mike McCarthy

          they were on Main Event last week!

          • Justin Mayo

            ….-grabs a whiffle ball bat- Mike, let’s take a boat out on the lake, shall we?

          • Mike McCarthy

            Not the whiffle ball bat!! Oh please anything but that!!!

          • Justin Mayo

            South Park reference, in case you were wondering!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here comes Sandow explaining his cash in!

  • Stephen Cash

    Why does everyone forget that Cena lost…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They said second failed cash in.

      • Stephen Cash

        Weird… I swear I heard 1st. I’m glad that they acknowledged it.

    • JJ

      Because it’s rare that wwe wouldn’t have Cena doing something super cena does all the time, I completely forgot and Jesse reminded me last week.

  • Xavier

    Smackdown rematch

    • The Breaker

      It was a really good match on Friday, so I guess it’s okay.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        First match to elicit a 9.5 from me in a long while!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I hope Sandow and The Real Americans pick up the win tonight. Highly unlikely but a guy can hope

  • K!NG

    Biff is here

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Is that a sports almanac in his singlet, or is he happy to be on TV?

    • The Breaker

      I actually laughed at that, and it doesn’t happen often with Cena.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So the next match is a repeat from Smackdown? I’m not opposed, as it was a fantastic one!

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Josh Mathews mentions the voting for the Orton vs. Big E match he then announces you can help program the App content! You can now vote to see which Traditional Survivor Series Match from the first Survivor Series event you want to see on the App tonight!! The options are Team Savage vs. Team Honky Tonk Man and Team Hogan vs. Team Andre The Giant

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Savage vs. HTM!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Flo Rida does not mix in with the Wyatts.

  • Justin Mayo

    Am I the only one who feels that song does NOT fit in with a Survivor Series?

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’m right with you.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Make that 3!

      • Justin Mayo

        “No Mercy” by No One for No Mercy 2003 was, IMO, the best ppv theme. Whatever happened to themes matching ppv’s?

        • Alex Gallardo

          Whatever happened to WWE?

          • Justin Mayo

            Whatever happened to Robot Jones? :-P

          • Mike McCarthy

            Whatever happened to Harvey Whippleman?

  • Cubed56

    Off topic here, but sad to say, my Green Bay packers season may be over

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Gesus and KB will be crushed too!

      • Mike McCarthy

        Gesus yelled at me on FB because my favorite team is the 49ers but my name is Mike McCarthy….

    • David Jr.

      I won’t be. Maybe the Lions have a chance then.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Even if they didn’t win the division the Lions are a favorite for the 2nd wild card spot

        • David Jr.

          I just want to see a playoff game in Ford Field.

      • Cubed56

        I’ll be cheering for them if Rodgers is out for an extended amount of time

    • Xavier

      Yeah, it’s not looking good bro

      • Cubed56

        I’m fearing a broken collarbone

        • Xavier

          I hope not, I wouldn’t wish injures like that on anyone

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Very few boos for Cena’s entrance this week!

    • Xavier

      Not trying to be funny here but I think people,actually missed him a little. His matches with ADR & Sandow even impressed a lot of his boo birds

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Agreed. I know I have, as Cena brings an extra bit of energy to every show.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I don’t like Cena, but he does great with helping charities.

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

    This is why Cena will never turn heel

  • Andrew Savoca

    Again, pardon my ignorance…but are those speakers in the ring corners? If so, for what reason? If not, what are they and what purpose do they serve?

    • Nostaljack

      They’re monitors for Cena. They make up for the delay caused by the venue.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They are there so that the people in the ring can hear themselves as they deliver the promo. Crowds get so loud it becomes a necessity!

    • Andrew Savoca

      Thanks gentlemen! I learn something new every week in this forum =)

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No problem Andrew! Glad to help!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Love it when Cena does a promo for charity work! His love and passion oozes throughout it!

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

      So true

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Cena and The Rhodes Brothers are showing off in the ring and out comes Damien Sandow, Cole says that he’s the uncrowned WHC and Lawler corrects him, The Real Americans come out and Jbl tells Cole to ask somebody why the JBL & Cole show isn’t on the WWE App!! Now, Alberto Del Rio heads out to the ring and Zeb Colter in on commentary.

  • Nostaljack

    Lemme get this straight. Big E’s gonna go from Orton to Axel? What a drop that is!

    • Cubed56

      Just a squash match for him to pick up a w after a loss

      • Nostaljack

        From your lips to Vince’s ears.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Hopefully it will give him his first title on the main roster!

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

    why in the world would you put two heels on commentary that hate each other?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, it means something more interesting than Cole and JBL!

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

        i just find this annoying.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I can agree, but it is better than listening to the standard broadcast team!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Kidd is the #1 trend worldwide on Twitter! Talk about awesomeness!

  • Xavier

    I wanna see Cesaro get Cena in the giant swing for some reason

  • Justin Mayo

    back soon folks! dishes

    • Nostaljack

      Booo!!

      • Justin Mayo

        You wanna come over and do them?

        • Nostaljack

          Dishes does not equal Raw. LOL!

  • Xavier

    Cena/Cesaro would be a great feud

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      It can possibly be a great feud unless creative turns it into a kiss of death for Cesaro

  • K!NG

    little johnny cena

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, ADR is calling Cena soulless, bland, and lacking passion? Pot, meet kettle!

    • Xavier

      I noticed that too. He just trolled us lol.

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

      You’re Black!

  • Mike McCarthy

    How many times is Del Rio gonna tell Colter he doesn’t like him?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      As many as it takes for him to finally believe it so he can try to sell it!

  • Nostaljack

    This is just bizarre. Colter and Del Rio are just weird together.

  • K!NG

    Maybe Colter can Manage Del Rio

  • Cubed56

    The funny thing about ADR and colter on commentary is they are actually really good friends off camera

    • Xavier

      Everytime I see Zeb I wish more & more that Muhammed Hussan was still in the WWE. How great would those promos have been

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Oh, yeah! That could have been awesome!

      • Cubed56

        Would’ve been unforgettable

        • Xavier

          I use to work on a oil rig in North Dakota around people like Zeb. The crap that comes out of their mouths when they think your not around is ridiculous

          • Cubed56

            I believe it

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: we’re back and the Heel group is still outside the ring. Sandow is slowly entering the ring, a stare down between him and Cena and explosive Cena chants from the crowd. Whip and a shoulder block to Sandow but Sandow up and gets Cena in the corner, boot to the face. Tags Swagger, boots on Cena and a belly-to-belly picks up cent and a headlock. Cesaro tags in and a double team on Cena, as we head back to USA

  • Jesse Sherwood

    They teased it Friday, could we see a Swing on Cena tonight?

  • Xavier

    I’m noticing that Cena & Cesaro are getting a lot of time in the ring together. I think this may be a prelude of things to come

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope so! Cesaro really showed his chops with Cena Friday, and tonight is just as good!

  • Mike McCarthy

    now THAT was funny stuff from JBL

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Cesaro is gold. He deserves a huge push

    • Xavier

      Amen

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Swagger didn’t help Cena on that lift!

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

    Great to see Cena breaking out that Hurricanrana in this match.

  • Xavier

    HURRICANRANA by Cena, that’s twice in a week

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye! Cena is trying to change it up and get rid of the 5 Moves stigma!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I hope they can sustain this mean streak in Sandow. It is going to help him immensely in the long run

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

    Cena is breaking out a few different moves this week.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I’m starting to wonder if Sandow might get the pin here tonight, setting up the Triple Threat.

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF alert: Halftime score- Bears 17 Packers 10

  • Xavier

    Another great 6 man tag match. That’ll be the theme of 2013.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Powerbomb into a slam! Are we sure Cena doesn’t have a doppleganger?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Only 16 tonight!

  • Xavier

    Holy crap!1 Did you see the air Cody got on that. Freaking EPIC

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Bloody freaking amazing!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    That was one hell of a match

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

    What a match. even better then smackdown’s! The Final cut still looks amazing.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And we still have an hour left!

      • Andrew Savoca

        Haha, who and what is left tonight?

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

          Vince?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Looks like it!

  • Courtney Kertesz

    That was such a great match

  • Cubed56

    5 star, anybody gotta problem with that, go f yourself. Just kidding but seriously that match was 5 star quality

    • Jesse Sherwood

      9.75 from me. Not even a Swagger botch could hurt it!

      • Cubed56

        9.75 is fair, what held it from a 10

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Just not enough stakes on the line. It didn’t have a big match feel to me.

          • Cubed56

            That’s fair, other then if Sandow and the Real Americans won the real Americans get a title shot and Sandow would’ve probably got into a triple threat

    • Xavier

      Most of the tag matches this year have been 5 star quality. The tag matches from this year are just as good as the tag matches from 1999-2003. Now we just need The Rhodes Family vs The Shield vs The Usos vs The Real Americans in a TLC match to cap off how great the tag division as been this year, end it with a bang.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Oh my brother, TESTIFY!!!

      • Cubed56

        Absolutely

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

    I’m so happy for Dusty Rhodes after everything he has been through he is just looking great

  • Xavier

    These tag matches this year have been the highlight of 2013. The tag division is back. I’d put the quality of these matches up against any of the tag matches from the attitude era. They hold their own

  • Mike McCarthy

    are we getting the same exact video package….?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I remember when they did this at the begging of the 3 hour Raws. It just gives me a bathroom break.

      • Xavier

        This segment was fine. It’s setting up for the climax of the evening.

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

    Was it really needed to show this exact same promo again?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Most likely because they showed it during the first hour. They are trying to catch the latecomers.

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

    I think they are trying to tell us something about Show

  • Xavier

    Is this the night McMahon returns?

  • Alex Gallardo

    No one ever stays off of WWE TV for more than two weeks after they get fired.

  • Courtney Kertesz

    I just realized something, both of the McMahon children have gotten power hungry over the years. Shane in 1997 and now Stephanie, but Shane was more of an ass about it, Stephanie is just a huge b***h about it. And I knew Big Show couldn’t be kept away.

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

    The Board demanded Big Show can enter the arena. LOL

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Of course, we know the “Board” = VKM!!!

  • Stephen

    I think the replay of the promo is a sign Vince returns tonight.

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

    WHOA! Steph

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    They are setting up for the Triple H vs Big Show Match at Survivor Series

  • Andrew Savoca

    Slam from Steph to Trip there haha

  • JJ

    This storyline…ha. Although I did like the little rib to HHH

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

    Big Show is the first victim of The authority Kane

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Josh Mathews welcomes Tyson Kidd and Natalya and congratulates them on returning and getting married. Kidd says it’s been too long and he’s glad to be back. Natalya said it was exciting to be working along side her husband. Mathews announces BREAKING NEWS that this friday “Tyson Kidd: The Road Back” will air friday on the WWE App!

  • Cubed56

    I can see it now, tension builds between steph and HHH causing them to go against one another with Kane and the Wyatt’s in steph corner and Orton and the Sheild in HHH’s corner, along with a kayfabe divorce storyline

  • Mike McCarthy

    Ziggler vs. Axel

    • Alex Gallardo

      He’s sure gone down the card since MITB.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Let’s see if Ziggler can pull a 4* match out of Axel!

  • Xavier

    Who’s this guy with the blonde hair in the ring?

    • Andrew Savoca

      Ryder?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nah, he’s too good to be Ryder! Some NXT guy? ;)

  • Noelz

    I’m still reserving judgment in fear that super cena will rear his head again but John seems to have gone back to his far better move set that he had early in his career…I’m impressed

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And his promos have as well, as evidenced on SD!

      • Noelz

        And he’s started slipping back into his blackcent

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Nah, Noelz, that’s his Boston swag! (I feel dirty just using the word “Swag”!)

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

    Axel vs Ziggler should be an okay match. But I’m glad he didn’t actually blow out both hips. I never want to see injury to anyone.

  • Nostaljack

    Curtis come to the ring to chorus of…nothing.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Almost as quiet as an ADR entrance!

  • Xavier

    WWE needs to quit BSíng and put the IC title on Big E and send Axel back down to NXT to get a personality and some charisma

  • Stephen

    Who is going to/ who do you want to face Orton at SS?

    • Alex Gallardo

      I see him fighting Big Show.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      At this point, I really don’t know. The WWE Title has become almost non-existent the last 2 weeks. The only person I can think of is Show.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Stop stealing my predictions! LOL Just kidding it’s pretty obvious that’s where they’re going.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Stay out of my mind!!!

    • JJ

      A lot of years the SS only has 1 world title fought for and the other is in the SS match, I think Randy will be in the SS match.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Axel: “I AM ALIVE!” lol

  • WyFo

    Stephanie telling HHH he never hesitated taking McMahon’s money was great!

  • Xavier

    Yo Cubed56, Green Bay knocking on the door

    • Cubed56

      They scored, I’ve got two tvs going on this night my man

      • Xavier

        Lol nice, that’s the American way

        • Cubed56

          Lol, of course

  • Nostaljack

    Axel, welcome to the J.O.B. Squad.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Welcome to Midcard Hell! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!

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

    Ziggler just pinned the Intercontinental Champion. Axel vs Ziggler at SS for the title?

    • Xavier

      That appears to be the case

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Or, Ziggler vs. Axel vs. Big E.! In the match, they turn Ziggler back heel, Big E. wins, and we get a proper Ziggler/Langston feud!

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

        That would be a better idea. But I get the feeling Big E. will be challenging and winning the US title at Survivor Series thanks to Roman Reigns. That’s right I’m calling a Reigns face turn.

        • Cubed56

          I’ve been saying that for two weeks, you can see it in the way reigns looks at Ambrose during their promos

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF alert: Green Bay tied the game 17-17 with a Eddie Lacy TD run. Early in the third quarter.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’m in a bit of a dilemma. I kinda want to go to a WWE house show in Chicago, but I’m still not sure if Miley is coming here for her 2014 tour and I don’t want to end up not having enough money to go. I don’t know what to choose.

    • Xavier

      WWE house show.

      • Alex Gallardo

        I have already been to two WWE shows and I’m not sure that a house show would be all that exciting. I’ve never been to a Miley concert though.

        • monty

          miley who?

          • Alex Gallardo

            Miley Cyrus. How have you not heard of her?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      When is the house show?

      • Alex Gallardo

        December 26th. And while the dates for Miley’s tour haven’t been announced, I doubt she would skip going to Chicago.

        • Xavier

          How much are house show tix usually?

          • Alex Gallardo

            I’m not sure. I’ll have to check out the website. I remember my seats for Payback cost 90 dollars though so I’m not sure what the difference is.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Between $25-75.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yeah, but I am sure the concert would be later in the early stretch of 2014, perhaps April. I’d try to do both. If you can only do one, do the concert. The House Show is on the Christmas loop, so it won’t be as good.

          • Alex Gallardo

            That’s true. When the dates officially come out I’ll see. If it’s enough past December that I’ll have enough money for both you bet I’ll go to both.

  • Xavier

    I still love The Usos entrance

  • JJ

    Packers get tricky with the onside kick and get it! haha
    Ball literally went way up in the air

  • monty

    what’s up everyone soory i am really late

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hey Monty! Glad to have you!

  • Stephen Cash

    Big show vs Kane
    Big show vs HHH
    Big show vs Orton

    Which should/will happen?

    • Nostaljack

      Big Show vs. Jumpin’ Jeff Farmer!!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Show vs. Norv Furnum!

        • Nostaljack

          Big Show vs. Bobo Brazil!

    • JJ

      Show vs Kane

    • Xavier

      All three are intriguing. I think Orton/Big Show is the logical choice at the moment though. Show is as over as he’s ever been so they have to capitalize and give him a title shot

      • Stephen Cash

        I just don’t find Orton vs Show intriguing at all…

  • Nostaljack

    3 M fleas!!

  • Justin Mayo

    Now that I’m finally back, I must say, albeit a little delayed…damn, Final Cut is a move of absolute beauty

  • Alex Gallardo

    I hate Cole’s fake laughs.

  • Stephen Cash

    When will McIntyre get pushed?…

    • Nostaljack

      In my best Flo from “Alice” voice: “When donkeys fly!”

    • Alex Gallardo

      I don’t think that’s ever going to happen again.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hopefully soon, but WWE seems to be afraid to pull the trigger on him again!

  • The Breaker

    No records tonight, I guess. :(

    • Alex Gallardo

      We came close enough last week.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That 6 Man Tag just left us in such awe that we didn’t comment! And from there, we have had a rough road tonight.

      • The Breaker

        Good point.

  • JJ

    With Jinder Mahal almost constantly the 3rd guy not in the match I don’t see why they don’t get rid of him. Work with Mccintyre and slater more first by creating a better clique.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Creative: Hey, we need to make a face team look really strong tonight! Who do we have them face?
    VKM: FEED THEM 3MB!

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      At least its not 3MB vs Los Matadores part 7

    • The Breaker

      I would’ve been all for Usos vs Shield even if we’ve seen it a dozen times.

  • Xavier

    This has been another solid RAW

  • Xavier

    O’LE

  • Mike Brailsford

    JBL and the difference between a horse and a bull. He’s seriously getting worse.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Josh Mathews recaps the 6 man tag team match, he welcomes Damien Sandow, he asks what went wrong for his team tonight? He says as long as his legs are still standing, his heart is still beating and he is still breathing so he is still the uncrowned WHC. Mathews asks if Sandow regrets when he cashed in since he failed. Sandow: “Failing? If I failed then that would mean my plan was over…you’re welcome”

    Sorry for the delay, my crappy wifi shut down.

    • Xavier

      Interesting comments from Mr. Sandow

  • Nostaljack

    ARN!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Gene!

  • Mike McCarthy

    ……..what did I just see

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Los Matadores just became the 3MB face equivalent with one promo…

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Torito is a little bit horny? Really?

    • The Breaker

      *barf*

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

    I really felt so bad for Renee there. for the first time I did not like something El Torito did.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Why did that segment happen. Eva Marie can do better than that.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Summer Rae and Eva Marie on one show? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      BAKA!!!

    • Alex Gallardo

      El Torito could draw more than them combined.

  • Nostaljack

    Evan Marie. Cool. Time for unintentional comedy!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      This is a trainwreck into a cancer ward of tragedy!

  • JJ

    Aww WWE you got me, I tuned into 3 hours of a less then good week, you got me with your great week last week..then this..

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, it has had some great high points, but then we get stuff like this!

      • JJ

        My favorite part of the whole show…was the first match and tiny segment after ha. It has seemed to go down hill since then, with an honorable mention for Tyson Kidd.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          You didn’t like the 6 Man Tag?

    • Alex Gallardo

      WWE always gives my hopes up.

    • The Breaker

      It’s been solid this week. You can’t judge RAW based on what we saw last week.

  • Xavier

    Screw the Bellas. I wanna see Naomi damnit! Lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      *High 5′s Xavier*

      • Xavier

        Lol

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Hey, I like my girls with curves!

    • The Breaker

      Total Divas is coming back, so you’ll get them both.

  • Stephen Cash

    I love McIntryes future shock DDT.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Same here! I just want him to splinter off of 3MB so I can see it more often and hear Broken Dreams again!

      • Alex Gallardo

        They tried pushing him in 2009, but look how that ended up. I don’t think WWE is going to go back to investing in Drew Mcintyre.

        • Stephen Cash

          I think they will. He’s talented in the ring, but could use some work on the mic. He has a ton of promise

        • Cubed56

          That wasn’t his fault his wife at the time screwed it up for him.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It was somewhat his fault. I’m working on a revival of my Where Did They Go Wrong series, and Drew is my first target.

          • Cubed56

            Yea but he did what any good husband would do and defended his wife and it cost him, kind of a shame if u ask me

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Agreed.

  • Justin Mayo

    5 and a half diva tag match? Seems legit

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Bellas and Eva Marie in the ring, out comes Aksana to zero reaction from the crowd but out comes AJ and Tamina to a pretty good pop, they make their way to the ring as we head back to USA!

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

    I have loved RAW this week.

    • JJ

      Loved? did you not watch last week…the whole shows from top to bottom, aside from summer rae, was great, this week the strength was the beginning of the show.

      • Mike McCarthy

        so the start of the 3rd hour is the beginning?

        • JJ

          No CM Punk, the 3 on 3 match wasn’t the strength, the punk segment also set us up for great future storyline.

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

        I don’t weigh one show against another. I treat each show individually and enjoy it that way. That’s how i watch.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          And as you should! Comparing leads to disappointment, although I am guilty of that sin myself!

        • JJ

          Fair enough, I used to do that, but then I would give too much credit sometimes, but I thought it’s a long term product each week should have some aspect of greatness related to the last, while providing great new, I feel they could have done more is all with all they gave us last week.

  • Alex Gallardo

    What does Kane have to do with the upcoming divas match?

    • JJ

      HHH segment after this…you don’t think they’d really end the night on a divas match..

      • Alex Gallardo

        No, but they could have recapped this after their match.

        • JJ

          Nah, that last commercial break is their big money maker because almost everyone, even if they tune out, comesback for the end.

    • Xavier

      He use to piledrive AJ Lee

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

    Raw recap of Kane turning to the dark side last week. Forshadowing to the end?

  • Alex Gallardo

    AJ has a very catchy theme song.

    • Nostaljack

      She really does. Very hummable.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I have it on my workout mix, and when I do Cardio, it starts 3 minutes of skipping!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I’ll have to try that.

      • Nostaljack

        Now, *that* is an admission, folks!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Have you ever tried skipping 3 minutes straight? It’s tough! Not to mention, I’m not to most coordinated person!

          • Nostaljack

            LOL! No, I haven’t. I just love that “Light It Up” is your skipping soundtrack. AJ would be proud!

      • Stephen Cash

        Comment of the night

    • The Breaker

      Someone said the lyrics in the chorus should be replaced with “Dating Punk!”. It works perfectly.

  • Mike Brailsford

    Oh dear, now they are trying to talk football (soccer) and call out all the English stereotypes since the are in Manchester next week.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Aksana is just awful

    • Xavier

      That’s putting it nicely

      • Jesse Sherwood

        She should be fired. She was the worst person in NXT season 3 and has actually got worse since then!

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

    Eva marie Pinning Tamina? :(

    • Alex Gallardo

      How is anyone supposed to believe that would ever happen?

  • Nostaljack

    Dag! I wanted to see Eva humiliate herself. She did nothing!

  • Stephen Cash

    Eva Marie didn’t botch the roll up!!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    why…..just why?

  • Xavier

    I’m assuming that Kane takes out Big Show tonight.

    • Stephen Cash

      Which still leave Orton without a challenger(if Kane vs big show at SS)… Interesting…

  • The Breaker

    She couldn’t even do the school boy gracefully.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That says something… She is WAY too green to be in a WWE ring!

      • The Breaker

        Yep. But because of Total Divas they want her on TV instead of training at the Performance Center like she should.

  • Cubed56

    Did anyone notice the song for the Gsp Hendrix fight. Counting bodies like sheep by perfect circle that should be the song playing for any Wyatt match promo in the future

    • Xavier

      I didn’t catch that. On a sidenote, I kinda hope Hendricks wins. He’s got a punchers chance

      • Cubed56

        As do I, and he’s got more then a punchers chance. One right hand from him and it can be all over for Gsp. Btw I recommend listening to that song and you’ll agree its perfect for the Wyatt family

        • Xavier

          I’ll check it out

          • Cubed56

            Let me know what you think after you hear it

    • JJ

      I have always enjoyed GSP, and I hate to say it, but I think Hendrix is going to out wrestle him then ground and pound him. Hendrix has been very impressive

      • Cubed56

        He has been, but Gsp is a whole different ball game then the guys he beat thus far

        • Xavier

          If GSP wins this fight the way he’s been winning his last fights then he either needs to retire or move to 185 like seriously. He’s pretty much emptied out the Welterweight division

          • Cubed56

            Agreed

        • JJ

          That’s true, but you don’t just beat Carlos Condit and Martin Kampmann without being a great mma fighter haha the Condit fight is the one that sealed it for me, I enjoyed him prior but that was the fight.

          • Cubed56

            True

  • Stephen Cash

    I’m wondering if someone is going to return to face Orton? I just can’t see a match he fits in…

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Can we get this up to a 1000 before the night’s over. That will be a mini victory at the very least even if we can’t claim the record tonight

    • Alex Gallardo

      There is no way we can do that in little more than 12 minutes.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Sadly thats true. We can get it up to 900 though

        • Alex Gallardo

          That’s a little more realistic, but it would still be hard.

          • Navin T. Ramkissoon

            The Record will Fall Before Years End Though. Slowly But Surely We Will Get There

          • Alex Gallardo

            However, the bigger this site gets, the more it has a chance of becoming a smark cesspool.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It won’t. That’s my mission.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It won’t. That’s my mission.

          • Alex Gallardo

            You better stay focused on it. I would hate to see this site taken over by the smarks.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Richard dedicated himself to making sure it didn’t, and now that I am helping with it, I won’t let it either. I read on this site for over 2 years before I started writing for it. The community is why I started writing in the first place.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I would trust you guys with keeping the community good. I would never want to manage it though.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I won’t lie, it can be tough, but we do it for the betterment of the IWC as a whole. If you can’t respect your fellow fans, then there is something wrong. Or at least that is how I believe.

          • Alex Gallardo

            That’s true. I’m sure that WNW will grow and strong and prosper under people like yourself. I blame the quality of sites like Wresting Inc. partly due to the mods, however you people are much better than them.

  • The Breaker

    Maybe Vince returns tonight?

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Josh Mathews jumps right into the previous vote for which SS Tag match will be featured on the app, and the winner is Team Hogan vs. Team Andre The Giant highlights are then featured of the match. Most notably we see Hogan get counted out while body slamming King Kong Bundy and then Bam Bam Bigelow running through Andre’s team only to be stopped in his tracks by Andre The Giant but Hulk Hogan comes back out attacking Andre The Giant with the Championship.

  • JJ

    Kane beat down on big show to set up SS, wonder how they’ll do this with kane..

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Through the ring perhaps?

      • JJ

        Well I meant with the mask/no mask/paint things ha. There was somewhere they may keep it off him and just make him look vicious again to promote the movie.

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

    Big Show is looking snazzy in the suit.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Very well tailored on him!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    We haven’t seen The Shield tonight…

  • Avalanchian

    So in order to settle will this include a Big Show vs HHH?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      One could hope!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I heard that match might happen at TLC.

  • Stephen Cash

    He wants a wwe title shot…

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

    Enter Vince McMahon.

  • Nostaljack

    Stealing the “Yes!” LOL!

    • Mike McCarthy

      I think he was doing it to piss off Trip, not to get a pop.

      • Nostaljack

        Oh, of course. I loved it!

  • The Breaker

    He’ll demand a WWE Title shot.

  • Nostaljack

    This is great! LOLOL!!!

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

    really weird spot for a commerical break.

  • The Breaker

    Jesse made a great point. Here come the Hounds of Justice!

  • Xavier

    Weird time for a commercial.

  • Mike McCarthy

    commercial break..?

  • monty

    what’s with these bad advertisement breaks?

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

    I don’t care what they do I’m not getting the app

  • Stephen Cash

    He will fight off the shield until Kane rips through the ring and takes him out!

    • Stephen Cash

      And Kane will say “the devil made me do it.”

  • monty

    show ask for a match against HHH

  • JJ

    So who’s going to help show?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I want the Hounds Of Justice graphic on the Tron on a shirt!

    • JJ

      This is one of the first times I’ve noticed it and I thought it looked sick!

    • Mike McCarthy

      That was awesome

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Did Big Show say he has been there for 18 years? Isn’t 14 More Accurate?

    • monty

      big show broke?

      so all this is a story line don’t ask wwe to be accurate lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He counts his time in WCW as well.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Ahh thanks for that

  • Alex Gallardo

    This is a late commercial.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Looks like we may get a long overrun.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: No live video, just a “30 Seconds of Fury” from WWE’s Youtube channel featuring Big Show’s KO Punch.

  • monty

    wwe you want me to download the app to see what’s happening while advertisement break?

    not doing it lol

    • Mike McCarthy

      They weren’t showing anything on the app

  • Mike McCarthy

    MNF Update: Bears leading 24-20 heading into the 4th quarter

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

    BWAHAHA!

  • JJ

    NOOO! I don’t want show vs orton…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’ll take it, as long as there is a dirty finish leading to a Big Show vs. HHH match!

      • JJ

        Kane has to be the one doing him dirty

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

    Big Show Wants Orton and HHH is going to give him it after a little nudge.

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

    Big Show should not have returned to the ring.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope, as he is Hound food!

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

        I’m thinking more like Kane food but same point taken

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Spoiler: They accidentally uploaded a matchup card for Orton vs. Big Show at Survivor Series before announcing it on-air.

  • Nostaljack

    This is dragging.

  • Mike McCarthy

    The crowd is silent and you just hear one dude yell “WHAAT!?!”

  • Xavier

    Kane

    • Xavier

      Nevermind

      • Mike McCarthy

        Lol I thought it was Kane too

    • Avalanchian

      Nope Snortin Orton

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Lol!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Hopefully The Shield gets a little comeuppance on The Big Show for costing them the belts

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, 4 KOs?

  • Alex Gallardo

    Yup Raw is going way past their normal airtime. I remember when WCW got cut off when the passed their air time.

  • Xavier

    Reigns’ spear is a well protected finisher

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It is, and Reigns is a lot better than I expected when I first saw him.

  • JJ

    Personally I can’t wait until rollins gets to go for the Intercontinental or US title.

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

    And Here comes Kane! in a suit!!!!

  • JJ

    HAHAHAHAHAHA Kane in a suit.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Glenn Jacobs hits the ring!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    that’s not Kane!!! That’s Glenn Jacobs!!

  • The Breaker

    It’s… Glenn Jacobs?

  • Mike Brailsford

    Corporate Kane

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye sir!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Kane wore the wrong clothes. He should wear his mask and wrestling gear to political events now.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Kane in a suit. Hmm I never thought I would see the day

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, he looks good!

      • monty

        yes he does

  • Xavier

    LMAO Kane in suit. He’s going back to his Libertarian roots

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He does have some interesting views.

  • monty

    one of most predictable endings

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

    Well he’s got his job back

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m not sure I would want it with this beating!

  • Avalanchian

    So Corporate Kane is gonna become a boring monkey. Just awesome…

    • JJ

      He reminds me of his WCW days

  • JJ

    No one to help show?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Looks like it! Maybe he needs a “Family” to help him!

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

    And now Big Show things he’s fighting ADR in the street fight at the start of the year.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      No, he thinks he is against Hogan in the Monster Truck Match in 95!

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

        Oh boy that is bad.

  • Xavier

    This ending fell really flat.

    • Avalanchian

      Going over their time limit by like 5 minutes for just utter boring stuff. Kane comes out in a suit and left with nothing but boring stuff.

      • Xavier

        Agreed. Their wan’t even any teased tension within the Shield tonight either which I was hoping for

  • monty

    wwe keeps wondering why ratings fall in 3rd hour, because we keep seeing the same ending week after week

    • Mike McCarthy

      So Big Show was triple power bombed through a table last week?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I assume he means The Authority and Big Show every week. It is getting a bit monotonous.

        • Mike McCarthy

          It’s because they keep dragging out the return of Vince McMahon

          • Jesse Sherwood

            At this point, I’m starting to doubt that will be the way VKM returns.

          • monty

            i mean all this stuff was done with DB now big show, i mean do something a little bit fresh. One week roster comes out to help DB another they don’t to big show

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Agreed. We need something to progress here. The Authority doesn’t look like they have any weaknesses, aside from a lawsuit!

  • Courtney Kertesz

    The corporate version of Kane is…interesting :/ ?

  • Alex Gallardo

    Overall WWE did now follow up well from what they did last week. I do like the new Kane though. I just hope TNA can do better this Thursday which is when I’ll see you all again. Good night!

    • Nick K

      You say they didn’t follow up and then talk about them following up on Kane…

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I got my wish The Shield got some comeuppance on Big Show for costing them the belts.

  • Cubed56

    does anyone else notice the way reigns looks at ambrose and rollins and now tonight the way he looked at steph hhh and kane after they do the dirty work. I think its a matter of time before he turns on them all

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope he turns and aligns with Show, making a powerful big man unit.

      • Cubed56

        that’s kinda what im thinking

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Plus, that gives Reigns a great mentor in the locker room!

  • Xavier

    That ending wasn’t very good but atleast football is still on. Chicago up 24-20 on Green Bay with about 9 minutes left so I’m switching over. Ya’ll have a blessed night. I’m out.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You too Xavier! Good Night!

  • Avalanchian

    Rating gonna drop on this show just like our comments count. =p

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Lol, we aren’t that bad off. We ended last week a bit over 1000, and picked up a few overnight. If we stay up around the 1000 mark, I won’t mind!

      • Avalanchian

        Just had to joke since I am sure we will see ratings down.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          At least in hour 3. It feels like that will soon be the trend yet again.

          • Avalanchian

            Cena hour skyrockets =p

          • Avalanchian

            I mean damn Cena should just wrestle at the end of every hour. Make it happen WWE

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Lol, after the last 2 weeks, I won’t complain!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Hope everybody enjoyed the App Updates tonight

    • Avalanchian

      Yes thank you again for the App Updates. Very much appreciated.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye sir, we did! Goodnight!

  • The Breaker

    Not the most exciting segment to end the show… but they did book Show vs Orton. Does this mean that they’re not going to address how he kept getting into the arena every week?

    • Avalanchian

      Of course not. Or maybe the way he kept on getting in will be revealed with his match against Orton.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yeah, and maybe Santa will come and give me $200 million so I can make an offer Panda Energy can’t refuse!

        • The Breaker

          So you find $200 million under your Christmas tree, and you’re saying the first thing out of your mouth is, “Great, now I can buy TNA!”?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            AYE SIR!!! $100 Million for the company as a whole, and $100 Million to make it what it should be!

          • The Breaker

            Who would you get to run the company?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Call me crazy, but I’d try to poach Dutch for Creative and have an actual executive team with experience in entertainment media on the business side.

            That’s a winning combination if you ask me!

    One last thing from me. Any idea when the WWE is heading over to the UK for their traditional November tour? Usually a Raw airs from the UK every November

    I just realized something about Kane. Within the first year of two of his career, Kane was the most fearful superstar in WWE. But as time progressed, he became a joke. He attacks people for reasons that makes no sense. He became a comic-relief, and now he’s a corporate stooge. I’m telling you, there was never anything about this character that made any sense.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      There was at different points, but in betwixt multiple changes, revisions, retcons, and plot holes in his character, he has become a muddied mess. His remasking was meant to fix it, but instead it turned into another chance for Creative to screw him up.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well guys and gals, I bid you a good night and invite you to join us for Impact’s Watch Party on Thursday!

    • Mike McCarthy

      night Jesse!

  • Craig

    Why is it still say refresh after Bella’s and Eva make way to ring!!!!

  • Sandeep Agarwal

    I have been telling people since the time team Hell No broke up. Enough of this red monster gimmick. Like the uber heels JBL and Jericho, it’s time now for Kane to suit up! :D

  • Lebron James

    I really want to see Cesaro vs Cena. THAT would be a hell of a match! Give them at least 20 minutes and we have ourselves a match of the year candidate.

    Scripted or not, I hope they get done for bullying. Doesn’t look good for their anti bullying campaign.
