Bryan vs Orton

Bryan comes out to huge pop! “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” as the fans cheer with him, and everyone is all smiles. Bryan defeated Orton via Count Out on Smackdown.

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Bryan – Before we start my match, I’d like to say there’s some people who have accused me of having some sort of complex.

Big heat!

Bryan – some say I’m the walking embodiment of little man syndrome. I’ve heard it my whole life. No, you’re not a wrestler! Were you an extra in The Hobbit? No, I was not. Teaming with Kane or on NXT, some called me the weak link. Those people are morons. I’ve gone toe to toe with Orton twice. A weak link would have taken the Count Out as enough. I won’t be satisfied until I pin or make Orton tap out in this ring. Will I do that tonight? “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Orton’s music cuts Bryan off.

Bryan – Randy, I’m glad you came out here because…
Orton – I came out here Daniel to tell you straight to your face, shut up and fight!

Bryan on Orton until Orton out through the ropes. Orton in, the ref calms things, then calls for the bell.

Back and forth between the two of them. Bryan gains a bit of control and “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” from the fans. Bryan sent out, Orton out with a sick clothesline, then sends Bryan across the top of announce. They battle from behind announce. Bryan backs up and lands a running knee on Orton, and the ref catches a big part of it. The ref calls for the bell.

No Contest (1:14)

Cena’s music and he comes out to mixed reaction. On stage Cena says, “I’m a human onion, just another layer! I got this in ShopZone, the web guys wanted me to say that.” Vickie made the match between Cena and Henry at MITB.

Cena (points the mic and winks at someone) – What a lively bunch we have here tonight. Members of the ‘Universe’ that know the WWE and know this is the WWE Championship. Tensai of thousands of men have chased it, but only 43 men have held it. Either for 8 year like Bruno Sammartino, or one night like Rey, you’re a minority with the respect of your peers. Over the years many men have done big and dastardly things to hold onto it, but that doesn’t earn respect. I’ve seen men try to buy this, try to steal this, men crack under the pressure of quest to chase this.

One man chanting, “Boring!”

Cena – Even McMahon thought he needed this to justify his existence to all of you. Last we we saw how low a man will sink to chase this. Last week chasing this Henry disgraced his family and cheated the WWE ‘Universe’. Quite frankly I thought his speech was an utter disaster to all the men who actually had to give that speech to you. Men like Edge, HBK, Flair. Very important moments in WWE history and Henry made a mockery of all of them, but I understand why. He’s been here 17 years, but maybe he sees that door closing, time ending, and he might not have a legacy without this. To get this he has to go through me. Allow me to introduce myself, John Cena, WWE Champion. Henry the best part of your speech was handing this back and saying you have to earn it, and you have to earn this! At MITB you will learn all you have earned is the right to knock your teeth down your throat. Henry, you are big, bad, strong and dangerous and proved you’ll do anything to get this. But you didn’t check your calendar, because we still in the middle of whoop ass season, and in three weeks you are going to find out what the world already knows – our time is now, and the Champ is here!

The fans pop for Cena as he leaves the ring and walks up the ramp with the belt held high.

Video

Punk defeating ADR by Count Out, then Brock’s music hits and he comes out at attacks Punk.

In Ring Segment

Heyman – My name is Paul Heyman, and for the past seven days I’ve been dogged by Brock attacking Punk last week. I’ve ignored Punk’s calls, texts and emails. Unfortunately we live in front of the fans, so where better to handle this in front of you. Punk, you will gets your answers as your fans away, and I, Paul Heyman await your presence as well.

Punk’s music and he heads to the ring. Heyman looks like he might throw up. Punk grabs a mic. “CM Punk!” chants.

Punk – You wanna do this in public, for their entertainment. I think they should be caught up to speed, and off your rotten rep in this industry and the world about why I am a Paul Heyman Guy. In 2005 after wrestling around the world and generating some buzz, I was signed to a WWE contract. At that time the Senior VP of Talent Relations was that goof Laurinaitis. He shuffled me to Kentucky to developmental. Because of who Laurinaitis was, Heyman was in charge of developmental. Heyman was set up to fail. Punk was not set to succeed. People in high places were on Heyman each week to cut Punk loose, even from McMahon. He’s not what we look for. He’s not good. Heyman was told to never think of bringing Punk to RAW or Smackdown. Despite Heyman’s track record of being a manipulator. Heyman refused to fire Punk. He believed in me and had my back. When ECW was resurrected, I was his first draft pick.

“CM Punk!”

Punk – I don’t mean to bore this dirty laundry between two friends. Two things, tell Brock I’m coming for him. Understand? I don’t care that he’s bigger or stronger than me, because he’s not better than me. You know what I’m going to say next. I’m the best wrestler on the planet and you know it better than anybody. I’m saying it to your face because Brock doesn’t have the balls to be here. You know me better than anybody. You know there’s no on more sadistic, relentless, more dangerous. He’s your friend or client, I will do what it takes to take your beast incarnate down.

Heyman – Okay.

Punk – Now to address the elephant in the room. Last week, because of our past, despite how many warnings I got about you, or horror stories about how much money you owe people, or how many times you stabbed people in the back, you never did me wrong. Last week, did Brock attack me because he wanted to, or because you saw the writing on the wall. For the first time, tell me the truth. This is me standing here. Tell me you sent Brock after me. I can take the truth. For the first time, tell me you did it. Swear on your children. For the first time in your life, you tell the truth.

“Tell the truth!”

Heyman – I never wanted it to be this way between us. Since you demand the truth. You would be able to see through me. As my best friend and until something happens, you’re my best friend, I will tell you the truth to your face. On my children, I didn’t know Brock was going to be here last week. (heat) And that’s the same response I’d get from Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon and Laurinaitis when I’d tell them that this kid is your next big Champ, he’s your next WrestleMania! They would boo me in emails and calls. It’s a fact that Brock’s contract ended at Extreme Rules. It’s a fact that I didn’t know he’d be here next week. Here’s another truth, and uncomfortable one. The moment you said Brock needs my help, you picked a fight. Not with me, but with Brock Lesnar. You know this was bound to happen as the professional jealousy has run deep for a long time. Why do you think I never went to McMahon trying to get you two to tag. That would have brought us a lot of money. I kept you apart because of the jealousy. In 2005 and 2006 I broke the rule and our friendship came first. I never denied any of these things, I know my flaws. You think I’m stupid. I will walk down that aisle one day. Not now, but someday when you’re Champ at WrestleMania. As uncomfortable as it is for the world to hear, Punk, I love you and you’re the best friend in the world, and I’m going to screw that up because you need space? I will never represent anyone against you. Brock will have a problem, but that’s between Brock and I. In 2005 and 2006 I was told to get rid of you. In 2013 people are telling you to get rid of me! (cheers) So,my fate is in your hands. With all due respect, it’s your move Punk!

“We want Lesnar!”

They stand and stare at each other in the ring. Heyman turns away, says something off mic. “It’s the best I got!”

“GTS!”

Punk – I’m sorry I doubted you.

Punk drops his mic and hugs Heyman closely. Punk’s music plays as they continue hugging, the camera in close on Punk’s face.

Jericho – Whoa, whoa, whoa! I’m sorry for interrupting you in your office Vickie. Talking about deserving better? Did you see the night I’ve had tonight? Three guys attacking me from behind, and I’m not in the MITBLM. A match I invented. I created. A match I’ve been in more of than any other human being on this planet.

Bryan drops to his knees and soaks it all in, hand holding the back of his neck, or his head, but obviously taking in every tiny bit of the love from the fans.

    Hello,

    I don’t know where Jesse is, so I will welcome everyone to the Open Thread Party, and ask why you’re excited about seeing tonight?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Welcome to this week’s Raw Watch Party! I’m your co-host Jesse Sherwood and WWE has some huge boots to fill after last week’s broadcast! Let’s Break it Down!

    1. After being duped by Henry’s false retirement, what will John Cena have to say to the World’s Strongest Man?

    2. Former World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler is out for blood from Alberto Del Rio, but after Del Rio’s kick to Ziggler’s skull on Smackdown will Ziggler be fit to compete tonight?

    3. The Beast is back and he has targeted CM Punk! Is Heyman behind this, and what will Punk do in retaliation?

    4. Daniel Bryan picked up a big win over Randy Orton on Smackdown, but he wasn’t pleased with just a countout! They will face off again tonight, but will Bryan finally get his definitive victory?

    5. The Shield took out Christian on Smackdown! Will Captain Charisma strike back?

    All of this and more is coming tonight! What are you looking forward to?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Evening everyone. Hope we get a decent enough Raw this week. Can’t wait to see what happens

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope so too. After last week, expectations are running high.

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

    Each week RAW has been getting better and better. Both the wrestling and the storylines have been getting better – though sadly not on the same episodes. I think the WWE has a lot hanging on RAW tonight after last week, and I think they have everything lined up for RAW to be fantastic.

    Fingers crossed.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      If the unconfirmed report is to be believed, then Heyman and Colter have their hands in the mix now. With them, Creative won’t be allowed to put out bad stories.

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

        They are fantastic at the stick, and there’s so much they could do. Impressive and brilliant men!

  • The Breaker

    Since Punk isn’t advertised for tonight’s show, I don’t think we’ll be seeing him. But, I would expect Heyman to at least come out an address the situation (meaning, deny any involvement with Brock’s actions). The word is their match is planned for Summerslam, so this will likely be a slow build. I am okay with that.

    Tonight, I am interested to see if tonight is the night Bryan gets over on Orton!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m betting on it being a No Countout Match tonight and Orton gets DQed, setting up an Extreme Rules match so that there is a definitive winner!

    • Danny_Boy

      So in other words, Punk gets to take another week off, such BS

    • Guest

      So I guess this match will be pushed back until later in the night

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I am interested to see if The Wyatt Family debuts tonight. Also I want to see Bryan get a win over Orton as well. And anything with The Shield is fine by me

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

      Bray is slightly injured, so I’m not sure. Fingers crossed, but I have no clue when it will happen.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Well if Bray is indeed injured Harper can get physical if need be

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

          Not saying he won’t debut, just that he’s not 100%

      • Jesse Sherwood

        They can do like when he first started, by having Bray on the ramp as the Family destroys the competition!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Same here. The time for vignettes is over. The Eater of Worlds needs to be unleashed!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    3 Minute Warning until Raw begins!

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

      Rosey & Jamal (RIP)

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Another one taken too soon.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So we are opening with a main event caliber match! YES!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I don’t see this match ending cleanly as how it is the one kicking off Raw

  • Edward Beedle

    Bryan vs Orton is a great way to start!

  • Smart Mark

    After last week it seems as though there is going to be alot of promo segments tonight; Punk talking about Lesnar attacking him, Heyman talking about the attack, Cena talking about Henry’s attack. But hopefully we get a solid show tonight. And with Christian back i’m hoping for a feud to start tonight or at least a MITB qualifying match.

  • The Breaker

    Orton surprised me with the speed he walked to the ring! lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I think that is the fastest his entrance has ever been!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    We fight on Monday Night!

  • The Breaker

    Stopping the match? Really? I thought something screwy might happen, but so soon? Lame.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I think it was just thrown out, but wow! What a way to kick off Raw!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Yup I was right, not a clean finish

    • Xavier

      They’ll fight later in the night more then likely

      • Edward Beedle

        Hopefully.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        I figured as much. They will fight later on with a stip attached. But from the moment they hit the ring to kick off Raw it was almost a 90 percent guarantee that the match was not going to end cleanly

  • Xavier

    So I guess this match will be pushed back until later in the night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope so Xavier, because they are burning white hot!

  • Edward Beedle

    dumb refs! I want to see a fight

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but there is no one else in WWE that could make this work as well with Bryan than Orton. He is not only revitalizing his own career, but building the future with Bryan.

    • Xavier

      Agree, the chemistry between these two is really good

  • Hayden Tyler

    R.I.P. Jackie fargo

  • Xavier

    I called it. They pushed it back until later in the evening

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Brad looked like he was about to faint lol

  • The Breaker

    This match is main-event quality, so it makes sense that we’ll get it later tonight.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we see VKM’s thoughts on Bryan… I bet he is glad he was wrong on him!

  • Edward Beedle

    Glad to see Christian back

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed! It looks like he is the next to be booked against the Shield after Smackdown. I can’t wait for him vs. Ambrose!

  • Nostaljack

    I just watched Christian mouth, “I don’t know what I’m talking about” on his way down to the ring. LOLOLOL!!!

  • Cubed56

    Off topic here, but I found an awesome argument as to why I and most wrestling fans hate “SuperCena”. Now to clarify I don’t hate him personally out of the ring his charity work is incredible I only hate him in the ring and behind the scenes. Now I wanna see how many of ou know this. What s John cena’s record since debuting in 2002?i

    • Xavier

      Correction most within the IWC hate Cena. Cena has more fans then haters. Just check his merchandise sales, Twitter & Facebook followers and you’ll see what I mean.

      • Cubed56

        Ok fair but I’m not taking into account the little children who are puppets and brainwashed and will like whoever wwe tells them too. Anyways do you know the answer

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

          My daughter is neither. She loves his energy, but at 9 knows he’s a cruddy wrestler. He’s cute, and she knows all the great things he does. She’s 9, but not at all a puppet!

          • Cube56

            Probably cause you yourself are a wrestling fan and explain things to her, if she was watching by herself without influence from you, I’d be willing to bet she would be a cena fan.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            My son is a Cena Fan, but it is because Cena has an undeniable appeal to kids. He’s only 6 though, so I can’t exactly explain everything with him. Although his favorite wrestler is actually a heel! He loves the Big Show!

          • Cubed56

            See exactly he is somewhat brainwashed, I’m not saying its a bad thing, my son is also a cena fan, but like your son his favorite is a heel and its Mark Henry

          • Jesse Sherwood

            But honestly, weren’t we all at that age? I know I was for the Macho Man and Jerry Lawler. Our kids will all learn some day who is the best people in the business. Cena may not have the greatest body of ring work, but has my respect because he has hit the level of stardom that so few wrestlers do.

          • Xavier

            So are you gonna explain to your kid when he gets older that Cena can’t wrestle, Isnt that the brainwash that Cubed56 was eluding to. People like what they like, doesn’t make there opinion anymore valid or invalid then the next. Never understood the Cena hate. For as much crap as Cena gets for the supposed “5 MOVES OF DOOM” Shouldn’t Punk gets the same hate thrown at him for the “1 PROMO OF DOOM” How many times in the last year has he cut the same I’m the best in the world promo.

          • Mark

            Saying CM Punks is the “1 PROMO OF DOOM” would not be accurate, that’s his gimmick. If you are saying that Cena’s gimmick is “5 MOVES OF DOOM,” then the “haters” are right, he needs a new gimmick.

          • Xavier

            It’s very accurate

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No, I am going to do the right thing and show him wrestling of all sorts and let him form his own opinions. Both Punk and Cena catch unneeded levels of hate.

          • Cubed56

            Let me clarify, I don’t completely hate. cena’s wrestling ability, is it bland and predictable? Yes, but he can also put on great matches which he’s done before, I hate his in ring gimmick and his politics backstage

          • Mark

            Have to say his match at Extreme Rules with Brock Lesnar was spectacular.

          • Smart Mark

            Yea i guess, if you enjoy one sided matches where one person gets completely destroyed the entire match and somehow ends up winning after 2 moves.

          • Xavier

            Every wrestler is predictable. And what politics backstage? Who has Cena held down or gotten fired?

          • Smart Mark

            lol

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

            But Sam’s favorite wrestler is Scott Hall. She’s a strange child.

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

            Actually, I let her figure out Cena on her own. I will admit I’m proud. One episode of TNA, and a couple of Bryan’s matches with Rollins and Ambrose and she worked it out on her own. Her sister had a wish when she was young, so Cena’s work means a lot to Sam.

          • Cubed56

            She’s a very smart girl.

        • Xavier

          Why are they brainwashed, because they root for someone you don’t like? Are the troops overseas who support Cena brainwashed as well?

          • Cubed56

            The troops like everyone, I was one of them I know that for a fact they like everyone in the wwe for everything they do or us.

      • HOVA

        illuminati

        • Xavier

          LMAO! So you think Cena is in a secret colt with Jay-Z drinking virgin’s blood now

          • HOVA

            You obviously don’t understand sarcasm.

    • Mark

      167 W – 58 L..yeah that does explain a lot

      • Cubed56

        Actually it’s alot more then that! Since cena has joined in 2002 he has had 638 matches, and he’s won 425 of them.

        • Mark

          Damn you Wiki answers…last time I trust the internet…lol

  • The Breaker

    I would love to see Sandow get a win over Sheamus on Smackdown.

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

      I’m with you on this! Sandow deserves a win!

    • Edward Beedle

      Would be nice to see Sandow beat Sheamus one on one at least once.

  • Robbie

    So we have Sheamus vs. Damien Sandow in a Dublin Street Fight on SmackDown and Chris Jericho vs. World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio later on tonight!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sadly, Jericho/ADR is a repeat of Smackdown.

  • The Breaker

    Punk’s here!

  • Edward Beedle

    Surprised CM Punk is actually there. Thought he would be in Boston.

    • The Breaker

      Same!

  • Xavier

    LMAO @AJ Lee

  • Edward Beedle

    A.J. is awesome.

  • Mark

    Who thinks Big E should talk like that all the time?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    AJ is superb and Big E is beginning to grow on me too

  • Xavier

    They’re rehashing the whole Lay-Cool/Mickie James angle from early 2010 with AJ/Kaitlyn

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’s the Three Year Rule. If 3 years pass, then you can redo a storyline.

  • The Breaker

    These promos have been creepy and awesome, but it’s time they debut. Enough teasing!

  • Cubed56

    Does anyone know how many times John Cena has lost clean at a PPV after winning his first world title in 2005?

    • Mark

      I’m going to guess 3, btw, liking the trivia!

      • Cubed56

        3 is wrong, it’s surprisingly more, but not much more anyone else it an answer?

        • Mark

          Someone (hint hint Richard) needs to make a stats website like ESPN for WWE.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Not sure about since 2005, but I do know that he has a 69-28 record at PPVs

    • Xavier

      Not sure but I know that HHH, Batista, JBL, Orton, Rock, Sheamus have beaten him clean on PPV since 05.

      I got a question for you, how many times has Austin lost CLEAN on PPV since from 1997-2001 when he was on top.

      How many times did Hogan lose clean on PPV from 1984-1991.

      How many times has The Undertaker lost clean on PPV?

    • Cubed56

      Congrats Xavier named all the guys to beat him. The answer is 7, 7 times in 8 and a half years. Rock WM 28, Sheamus tic 09( tats generous as the played it as cena slipped), Batista SS 08, jbl great American bash 08, HHH NOC 08, Orton backlash 08, and Orton again at WM 24

      • Xavier

        LOL, you never answered my questions though

        • Cubed56

          Allow me to dig a bit I can tell you

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    They dropped the tag belts at the NXT Tapings so the Wyatt Family’s debut should be imminent

  • Wes

    That Diva segment was just awful, waste of tv time

  • Nostaljack

    AJ and Big E. were hilarious!!

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

    Two people feel very different about the Divas segment! I love this discussion!

    • Robbie

      I thought it was terrible. No heat at all

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

        Disagree, the fans were really into it. They reacted to the Adam’s apple comment in a huge way!

    • Xavier

      I thought it was funny as well. AJ/Big E rare doing a very good job of being the bully. It’s the whole Lay-Cool/Mickie James angle done all over again though

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

        I loathed that storyline. As a woman who’s not rail thin, it was rather disgusting, even though I have quite negative feelings about Mickie as a person.

        • Robbie

          How come Ken?

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

            It has a whole different feel to me. Piggy was about fat, this is about muscle, and I think the mocking is taken as pathetic for AJ mocking Kaitlyn being muscled. Lay-Cool was on Mickie for being fat, which she wasn’t and isnt’ compared to most women.

            That help?

          • Robbie

            I knew what you meant by that, I mean about Mickie as a person

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

            Jesse, you handle this one? You know why.

          • Robbie

            Okay

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

            Or I can link it to your facebook!

          • Robbie

            Yeah that will work :)

        • Xavier

          But isn’t that the same thing as what AJ did tonight though? Why do you find this funny but not the Lay-Cool stuff. It’s essentially the same thing IMHO

        • Smart Mark

          I think the storyline is good because yes they make fun of her body but lets be real. Kaitlyn has a body that every man loves and a body that women dream of having.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            If she didn’t have that awful hairstyle, I’d find Kaitlyn attractive.

          • Robbie

            :O

          • Jesse Sherwood

            What? I like a strong woman! Beth was always pretty hot to me!

          • Robbie

            You’ve redeemed yourself

          • Xavier

            I always had a thing for Tamina. Love the exotic look she has

          • Smart Mark

            Honestly i think she has the second best hairstyle in the WWE right behind Ziggler. But remember Jesse, if you hate Kaitlyn’s hair then you have to hate Seth Rollin’s hair aswell :P

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I do. Highlights are one thing, but massive chunks like that just look bad to me. Although Rollins’ does look better than Kaitlyn’s because he touches it up almost every week.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And I am in the middle. It is very reminiscent of the Piggy James angle 3 years ago. WWE needs to take the Divas away from that sort of booking, but AJ and Big E did well with it.

  • The Breaker

    AJ and Big E were entertaining. It was a fun little segment that went along with their feud, but nothing particularly special.

  • PaulK1981

    Jericho rules

  • Kevin S Lehman

    I just saw a ad for the WWE house show in Wildwood,NJ on July 5th where Dolph will defending the world championship, yet I know that on July 6th in Ocean City,Md Del Rio will be do that

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

      I lived in Cape May for a year.

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

    Don’t try this at home video!

    • Hayden Tyler

      i still do

  • The Breaker

    I like how Ricardo ribbed the fans. lol

  • Robbie

    Ziggler vs. Del Rio is official at Money in the Bank! AJ and Big E are advertised to be in DZ’s corner though. Doesn’t make sense to me with AJ and Big E heel. Will they turn I wonder

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, I see Dolph as more of a tweener right now. His attacks on ADR are heelish, but he is a face in his actions otherwise.

  • The Breaker

    I kind of hope Ziggler doesn’t win the title back at Money in the Bank. WWE can really sell him as a darling underdog if they keep him chasing the title a little while longer, and that could help him get over as a face in a big way.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I don’t have a problem with creative turning
    ADR Heel at the PPV. It was well done, but the mistake they made was
    turning him cowardly. They turned him heel as someone who would do
    anything to win the title and should have kept him in the same vein as a
    heel who would do anything to keep the title. They should not turn him
    cowardly again (but this is WWE Creative so in all likeliness they will)

    • Xavier

      Very valid point

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

      ADR has been boring for the better part of a couple years, and nothing is working for him. Might it be the man and not the characters they’re giving him?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He just seems to not have any connection to his character. Just look in his eyes when he does a promo. No fire there at all.

      • The Breaker

        Agreed. I think both are partially to blame.

      • Tim

        I tied to give him a chance. But he just isn’t entertaining. I found his debut promos to be the worst ones I’ve seen. but with Rey mysterio hurt every other day.and sin cara being sin cara. del rio is the only Spanish person wwe has got or is at least using

  • PaulK1981

    From Germany to wnw: cool work! Kept in this Way!!!

  • Cubed56

    John Cena has lost clean at a PPV only 7 times in 8 1/2 years, and two of them were in either a fatal four way or triple threat helping him save face

    • Xavier

      Well I don’t remember Hogan or Austin losing much CLEAN as a face either. WWE has always booked their top babyface like that since Bruno. So why just bring it up with Cena? It would be like me having a license for a really long time then just now complaining about having too stop at redlights, it makes no sense to do so since it’s always been that way to begin with. Vince will always book it that way just like other promotors alike have booked their top babyface.

      • Cubed56

        Because unlike Austin and hogan, cena has been the same EXACT thing damn near his entire career

        • Xavier

          Hogan was doing the same thing from 83 to 96. Austin’s been doing the same thing since 97. SAME THING

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Even before that. Hogan was like that in the territories in the late 70′s

          • Xavier

            Yeah his Verne Gagne/AWA days but apparently he along with everyone else gets a pass but Cena doesn’t. It becomes really hard to take anything Cena haters say seriously

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And his stint in CWA against Jerry Lawler, and he was heel!

        • Xavier

          Your hate runs deep. You bring up brainwash but you repeat the exact same thing you hear from all these podcast that bash Cena. I’ve heard this argument 1000x at least.

          • Cubed56

            You are definitely right about hogan I have no argument there other than I never liked him and since cena is him reincarnated that’s probably why I hate cena. BTW Austin went under clean 6 times from 1997-2001. Hogan I’m not sure I’m sure it’s vey few. And taker has gone under almost 20 times 4 alone to austin

          • Xavier

            20 times since 1990 for Taker? Who did Austin lose to clean from 97 to 01, I remember Hart, Angle, Undertaker/Kane in a handicap match, Foley at Summerslam, HHH at Backlash. Forgot the last one though

          • Cubed56

            Kane, first blood match

          • Xavier

            LOL I completely forgot about that. I thought Kane won that dirty though

          • Cubed56

            Yes and no, it was a no dq match with the first man to draw blood wins(obviously) there was a distraction for Kane but nobody laid a hand on Austin other than Kane, so it’s considered clean

          • Xavier

            Oh okay. But do you see my point as far as booking the top guy? Taker 17x in 20 years, Austin 6x in 4 years, Cena 6x in 8 years, Hogan 2 or 3 times in 7 years. Top guy hardly ever loses clean rather it be Cena or guys from the past, It’s booked that way for a reason though and rightfully so. When the top guy loses clean it’s a bigger deal. If you book your top guy under too much cleanly then it would defeat the purpose of even having a top guy.

          • Cubed56

            I agree with you yes. I think, and maybe its just me, but it seems like cena has been forced down our throats more then the others. That fair to say?

          • Cubed56

            Also yea it’s like 17 times for taker, everyone know his streak at WM but he’s actually gone under quite a bit at other PPV’s

  • Hayden Tyler

    the kitchen sink move was botched

  • Mark

    Del Rio looks like he is phoning it in tonight

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’s looked like that for a while now. Sadly, that’s just ADR.

  • Smart Mark

    Every champion right now except for Cena is a heel, maybe Vince is listening to the fans reactions :P

  • Robbie

    Any remember when ADR first turned face and he added a few moves to his arsenal and promised to bring some of the lucha libre style back? Boy that was the day.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yeah, he was changed all of 3 weeks. Then he went right back to phoning it in.

  • The Ignored Monster

    Ricardo sells better than del rio, and is better than Del Rio in almost everything else lol

  • Robbie

    Here is a question for you all..who was the last heel you truly hated that got to you?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Define hated.

      • Robbie

        That you gave a lot of heat for his character, like Vickie for example people giving her heat

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Hmmm… For just the character I’d say Big Johnny. But as a true heel I hated in the ring, I have to go back to USWA and the Dirty Dutchman. He was dirtier than Flair!

    • Cubed56

      HHH

    • Smart Mark

      I would say The Miz. And by “hated” i mean every time he showed up on the TV screen i “hated” him and “hated” myself for sitting through his promos and “hated” the WWE for giving him promo time. But i don’t mind him now.

    • Robbie

      How about JBL?

  • Robbie

    Khali for 2k14 cover!

    • Mark

      Michael Cole, they have completely changed the mechanics of the game so that you are the broadcaster and the more boneheaded things you say the match you are watching will get worse and worse. That is until you win, then the wrestlers quit. I think the goal of the game is to get all the wrestlers to quit…then you win!

    • The Ignored Monster

      Then the game would never sell, pun intended.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You had to mention Khali!

      • Robbie

        Big man deserves it! He’s a former World Champion you know ;)

        • Jesse Sherwood

          *Gibbs slaps Robbie*

          • Robbie

            Just like the DDT’s at Payback..you even botch that!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yep! It went across your face AJ style instead!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    We are getting a WWE App Rehash from Last Week

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Can someone explain to me the point of the 1-800- Fella Skits?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Just a fun little promo segment! Enjoy them!

  • Xavier

    Del Rio/Jericho was solid.

  • PaulK1981

    Once again proved: best in the World at what he does! One more Run as Champ!

  • Mark

    Does the Ryback doll thingy they just advertised come with a secret pocket to hide the roids?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anyone else see her pulling a Big Johnny here?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Man, Vickie is getting MASSIVE heat!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Looks like Maddox did it instead!

    • Robbie

      Now that is heat!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sadly, it’s X-Pac heat.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I am going for a Fall Counts Anywhere for Daniel Bryan vs Orton

  • Robbie

    Rocky?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep, he is supposed to do some big promotional work for it. Honestly, I’ll believe that when it happens.

      • Robbie

        Could be someway to see if he’ll do WrestleMania next year

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Except he was confirmed for the cover since before Mania this year.

  • Cubed56

    Should be the Sheild

    • Kevin S Lehman

      at least it isn’t Cena

      • Cubed56

        Agreed

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

    Rocky? I think that’s a really daft idea! Nothing like trying to look forward while not being able to let go of the past. They trying to butter Rocky up to return again? I don’t like it at all!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      This has been confirmed that he was the coverboy since before Mania.

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

        So many better ideas than The Rock at this point.

        • Smart Mark

          I think Paul Heyman, CM Punk, Brock Lesnar and Curtis Axel would have made an awsome WWE 2K14 cover. Because it shows the past present and future all on one cover and lately the Paul Heyman guys have been a heavy talking point in the WWE.

  • The Breaker

    Ryback shouldn’t even be back on TV yet. They should’ve waited to reintroduce him, as his heel turn and the subsequent program with Cena really damaged his character. Because right now, no one could care less about him. Returning superstars after a long hiatus have a much better chance of getting a good reaction. And really.. putting him in the ring with Khali doesn’t exactly give him a rub.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Especially against Khali. That makes everyone look bad.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Ryback squashes everyone and whenever he comes up against a main event calibre opponent he loses.

    • Xavier

      He’s the Tony Romo of the WWE.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Wow! Didn’t think of that one Xavier! Good show.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep! Got to love that logical booking! *Sarcasm*

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

    Robbie, I posted on your FB wall.

    • Robbie

      Got it :) I’ll watch on the next breal :)

  • Seth Iser

    I think I might have a theory on Del Rio since he was a hot talking point here tonight. Part of it to me is a guy who seems to have all the tools but in terms of wrestling toward the American audience he dosen’t seem to know how exactly to use them in terms of translating over and once that happened…well he sort of got discouraged and just goes with his formula thinking it’ll be the same no matter what he does. It’s a guess.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Interesting point Seth. I can see that to a point, but even when he was first starting he seemed to be missing that fire in his eyes, the core belief in his character.

      • Seth Iser

        It was a thought. Maybe they just need to get into his head and see where the fire is and if there’s no fire…well…I don’t know what the best step is for him at that point.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          At that point, he needs a repackage. I honestly think he is getting that far down the rails.

          • Seth Iser

            If you go that route…I’d take him off television for at least three months but preferably six months while you work out the kinks for the repackage. I think they can afford him taking some time out because they’re pretty deep in terms of talent at the heel position.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Personally, I’d remask him and keep him silent. Go old school Lucha. He could get really far over that way, as his Lucha Libre style is absolutely amazing. Better than anything we ever see from Sin Cara!

          • Seth Iser

            The air of mysteriousness type of route in some respects. Hey, it’s better than what they’re doing with the dude now.

    • Smart Mark

      That might be same problem Sin Cara had?

      • Seth Iser

        Cara doesn’t have Del Rio’s size either plus I think the way he tries to go with things at that time was to go 100 MPH on everything to try to get everything he could in. Not the best way to go about things. Plus his relative lack of size(I know, dirty word!) hurts him even if he made the adjustment seemlessly.

        It’s really hard to go from Mexican style to a more Americanized sports entertainment style. It’s even harder to go from Japanese to American in some cases.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Cara’s problem is that he refuses to adapt to WWE’s style and tries to shove WAY too many spots into one match.

  • Xavier

    Let the HATE begin lol

    • Cubed56

      Lol, You know it!

  • Cubed56

    Did zigglers baby face turn stop already after zig zagging Jericho?

    • Seth Iser

      No, partially it was a case of an eye for an eye based off of Smackdown and partially because Jericho and Ziggler have been on and off fueding for a while now.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope. I think WWE is trying to build him as a tweener.

    • Xavier

      Not necessarily. It’s kind of like when Orton RKO’d Bryan. It was more of a payback/frustration thing then an actual heel turn

      • Cubed56

        But the crowd had more boos hen cheers

        • Jesse Sherwood

          That’s because Jericho is so far over as a face. Any attack on him would have got that reaction.

          • Cubed56

            That is true

  • Scott

    20 bucks says we get the same “ive never backed down from a fight” speech fron Cena……BORING!

    • The Breaker

      Bingo!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’d take that bet, but I know I’d lose!

      • Seth Iser

        Dude, if you were right not only would we see something a little more fresh but you’d be 20 bucks richer. :P

        • Jesse Sherwood

          But I would have lost and be out half a tank of gas!

          • Seth Iser

            Well, that WOULD suck.

  • Cubed56

    The cheat here is us having to waste time listening to a promo we’ve heard a thousand times before

    • Xavier

      LOL The bigger cheat is having to sit thru these same comments. Like I tell all Cena haters like yourself, Cena is the top guy and that’s not changing any time soon but their is an alternative that comes on Spike on Thursday nights for those who claim to be SOO tired of Cena

      • Cubed56

        Yes there is, but I enjoy everything else about WWE, TNA is terrible and have hogan who was cena before cena as you mentioned hogging all the storylines over there. And it seems like there are alot more of these comments then I love cena comments or wow great promo by cena or wow awesome match by cena on here or anywhere

        • Xavier

          It’s the IWC, they’ve been “BRAINWASHED” into shitting on everything Cena does

          • Cubed56

            Ill give you that, but I’m not shitting on everything he does, his charity work is incredible the stuff he does for us former and current soldiers is great, he helps bring along younger talent, doesn’t put them over often but helps them, his whole gimmick is what I hate, him personally I think he’s an absolutely genuine and awesome guy

  • Robbie

    I’m starting to like WWE Title a lot

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I just caught the debut trailer of the game on YouTube. Apparently Macho Man is going to be on it.

  • Xavier

    I really hope the Usos pick up this victory

    • Cubed56

      I don’t think there is anyway they dont

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Goodbye 3MB!

  • The Breaker

    It has to be the Usos winning here. But, sadly, They don’t even come close to The Shield in terms of credibility as champions. I don’t even think The Shield needs to defend the tag titles at MITB.

    • Seth Iser

      Eh, you sometimes have to roll with what you got and the Usos are a hell’va team that just need the chance. This is their chance…if they go and put on a kick ass match with the Shield…eyes are open and on them.

      • The Breaker

        I like The Usos, but the booking has made it so one-sided that the match isn’t all that interesting. Fans like us know that the match will feature very good wrestling, but when you think of who The Shield have been up against, most people would see it as a step down.

        • Seth Iser

          A ton of it is mainly because they don’t put the Usos on television that much. Shame really because let them wrestle and they’re really good and give them a mic and see what they can do in that regard, too. Why not invest a couple minutes on that at least, right?

          • The Breaker

            It is true, they very obviously haven’t been given much exposure on television. They do have a lot more to show, and I happy that they now have a shot at earning themselves a more prominent role (as far as tag teams in the WWE are concerned).

  • Xavier

    Glad the Usos are getting this opportunity too work with The Shield, they’ll get over quick and hopefully they get the strips somewhere down the line.

    • Cubed56

      Cousin vs cousin is pretty cool too

  • Robbie

    Wow..David Otunga..

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yeah, he hasn’t been on TV in over 4 months!

  • Robbie

    I love Kane :’)

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He is just an amazingly versatile talent. But that happens when your early career is influenced by the King and Dutch Mantell!

  • Kevin S Lehman

    Cena stole a line from Bully Ray… allow me to introduce myself my name is John Cena and I’m the WWE World Champion

    • Seth Iser

      ‘Do you know who I am!?’

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Hi, I’m Dolph Ziggler!

        • Seth Iser

          That’s not as bad as being Kerwin White’s caddy!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Or a male cheerleader!

          • Seth Iser

            At least he could talk a little at that point!

  • Xavier

    Let’s hope Punk doesn’t cut the same “I’M THE BEST IN THE WORLD” promo that we’ve all heard a billion times

    • Cubed56

      You see I hate cena you hate punk. The difference is I agree with you a bit, I’m sick of the best in the world gimmick also

      • Xavier

        Not so much that I hate Punk, I do however hate his attitude backstage most of the time. But I do think he’s great on the mic and in the ring but just like everybody else who’s ever wrestled, I think even he can get stale & repetitive at times.

        • Cubed56

          Very much so, in my opinion he was his best in his SES days.

          • Xavier

            That’s the CM Punk I really enjoyed. Espically against Jeff Hardy. If Austin ever comes back (fingers crossed) Punk needs to kind of transition back into that character. That would be epic

          • Cubed56

            No doubt, complete polar opposites opposing one another, it would for sure be epic.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That is the only way I could even see that feud working. But I want a full SES revival at some point too! But the crazy cult leader position is filled by Bray Wyatt at the moment.

          • Cubed56

            True

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Sorry, but what does TRYR mean?

    • Cubed56

      I will also say this, I enjoy our back and forth, finally someone who can respectfully debate a topic, I may disagree with you, but I will tell you I respect your opinion and everything you say Xavier

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’ll say this, I have enjoyed reading you two’s conversations. It is this kind of debate that made me want to write for WNW!

        • Cubed56

          Thanks Jesse

      • Xavier

        Agreed. I have no issue with you man. You know your wrestling, you get my respect.

        • Cubed56

          Same to you sir, that’s all I ask for out of someone who wants to debate is that they know what they are talking about, and you certainly do.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anyone else love Punk’s new Wolverine look?

  • Kleck

    Hand Punk a mic every week. GOLD

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Punk may have slipped into his Best in the World shtick for a minute, but his fire was outstanding here!

  • Cubed56

    Heyman is gold, he’s playing punk like a fool.

  • Cubed56

    Then again maybe not, maybe punk is playing Heyman.

    • Xavier

      That could be the case

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That look on Punk’s face gave me the same thought.

      • Cubed56

        Either Heyman screws punk against lesnar, or they both screw over lesnar and punk becomes the ultimate heel/Heyman guy. Why not make Brock face he’s already a huge draw, now imagine if he was face and could move tons of merchandise for the company.

  • Xavier

    Good promo. I like the acting here, I think Punk wants too believe Heyman but doesn’t really trust him. That’s the vibe I got out of all this

  • Xavier

    Aww, my guilty pleasure is up next. Millions of dollars lol.

    • Cubed56

      Not just you bro, I dig Titus I wish he could get away from DY and go out on his own.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Titus has improved so much over the last year. Young, however, hasn’t changed much since NXT season 1.

      • Xavier

        Yeah same here, I remember a couple weeks ago Titus had a match with Sheamus where he actually got a lot offense in, it was a very good 7-8 minute match and even JBL & Cole kept bringing up the point thst Titus was “very game tonight”. I was really hoping they would build off that they didn’t. I think he has a lot of upside. he has a great look, I think he could make a really good babyface. I still remember his promo from NXT when he got eliminated, I thought that promo was really good.

        • Cubed56

          I thought the same thing, Vince has said he’s looking for an African American to push, and other then Henry, I truly believe Titus is the best option

          • Xavier

            I remember reading about that. Titus or Big E is the obvious choice for that. Kofi is midcard for life, Truth isn’t the answer either. And nobody truly knows what Xavier Woods will bring to the table once he is called up.

          • Cubed56

            The problem is Titus and big e are the obvious choices, so it more then likely won’t happen for one of them

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Titus is a good one, but I still feel if they would turn Big E face that he could be the perfect candidate right now. Either that or turn Truth heel again!

          • Cubed56

            I forgot about truth, but he’s up in age too and injury prone, big e would be good for sure, I think your truth heel turn may be used on Kofi though, that would be awesome

          • Smart Mark

            It should be Titus but at the moment it seems like they are in favor of Big E.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          He also dropped an F Bomb in that very same match. I promise he isn’t getting pushed any time soon.

          • Xavier

            That’s an unfortunate reason not too push him but it is what it is I guess

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It’s more just that he obviously needs to remember where he is at. They are PG, despite what anyone else wants, and WWE has to make sure he can keep that image.

          • Cubed56

            True, but the f-bomb was probably cause he was happy he was actually given some time to show what he’s got other hen being squashed in tag matches

          • Jesse Sherwood

            If that was the case, I can’t say I blame him. But as I said to Xavier, he just needs to remember where he is at.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, The Primetime Players get an entrance?! Are we in Bizzaro World?

  • The Breaker

    That was a great back-and-forth between Punk and Heyman! Those two men together are absolute gold. I can’t wait to see how they handle the build for the seemingly inevitable clash between Brock and Punk.

  • Robbie

    I thought that was a brilliant promo. Anyone who want to learn how to work the mic, watch these two

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That roundhouse looked bad. I can’t say if it was Punk or Titus, but it was botched.

    • Stephen Cash

      Titus was botching everything before that. So I’m going to assume it was his fault…

    • Cubed56

      They both looked out of sync together there

  • Xavier

    Are they doing 1 or 2 MITB matches this year? I really hope it’s just one. One briefcase holder who can cash in on either title is far more interesting IMHO

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They just said the WWE Championship MITB, so looks like 2.

  • Robbie

    Was it me or was the crowd confused?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I have this niggling feeling about this power struggle. We haven’t had a GM for over a year, and it looks like Steph is trying to insert herself as it. I think she will take Raw over and be stuck between VKM and HHH.

    • Xavier

      I can see that happening. I’m guessing the big blow off would be at Survivor Series.

      • Cubed56

        Team VKM vs team steph vs team HHH, that would be awesome

    • Robbie

      I’m just glad to see Steph!

    • The Breaker

      I’m all for that!

  • Cubed56

    So after seeing axel help punk, I’ve come to the conclusion that Heyman is for sure playing punk. This storyline has great potential though.

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

    I want WWE to do a War Games, but they won’t in this PG Era.

  • Robbie

    Still prefer Steph’s old theme

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      As do I

  • Robbie

    CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus vs. Christian vs. Kane vs. Rob Van Dam!

  • The Ignored Monster

    That’s a stacked match!!

  • The Breaker

    The MITB Ladder Match is stacked!

  • Xavier

    I would love too see the E swerve us all and have Christian win it. So their going back to 6 guys, I can dig that. I always felt that the 1st two MITB matches featuring only 6 guys were still the best ones

    • Simon Veitch

      I count 7… Bryan, kane, Christian, punk, Sheamus, Orton, rvd. Wouldn’t be surprised at all to see an 8th surprise entry

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Ryback vs Mark Henry vs Cena? God No

    • Xavier

      Agree, Ryback doesn’t need within 1000 miles of Cena/Henry

  • Cubed56

    Great MITB match, but good luck filling the rest of the card.

    • Kevin S Lehman

      does that mean that punk won’t be facing brock at mitb?

      • Cubed56

        Yea that’s good though, that’s for sure a summerslam match. I think Brock will cost punk his spot in the match, or cost him the chance of getting the briefcase during the match.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So the WWE Title MITB is all former World Champions again. That means that Smackdown’s will help elevate a new star again.

  • Robbie

    Ryback vs. Chris Jericho at MITB

  • The Breaker

    Leave it to Jericho to put Ryback over. But, unfortunately, I think it’s too late for that now.

    • Xavier

      Jericho putting someone over lost it’s luster a long time ago. He’s jobbed too so many guys that it’s really hurt the Jericho brand.

      • The Breaker

        That’s arguable, but Jericho is still way over with the fans.

        • Xavier

          I agree he’s still over, he’ll always be over but I don’t think a Ryback win over Jericho is really going to elevate him all that much either. A win over Punk or Cena would have done way more for Ryback then a win over Jericho could ever do.

          • The Breaker

            Agreed. WWE ran him into the ground with their booking, and now is basically irrelevant. He will never be a top star.

  • Cubed56

    Well that’s one way for Ryback to get a quality PPV win, you know Jericho would be happy to help elevate a young talent(using talent very loosely there).

    • Xavier

      Only problem is that Jericho has jobbed so much in the past few years that it no longer really has any meaning, atleast not to me anyway. I think it has hurt Jericho’s stock

      • Cubed56

        I agree, but if anything hopefully he doesn’t lose clean this way his stock isn’t unrepairable but Ryback still gets a PPV win. Jerichos work will keep him relevant

    • Jesse Sherwood

      There is only so many times Jericho can do this before he looks bad. If he loses against Ryback, it will officially destroy his top tier reputation.

      • Stephen Cash

        If one loss made a difference he would have lost his top tier reputation a long time ago. I know he losses a lot, but one more loss to Ryback won’t hurt more than the others…

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Since his return at Royal Rumble, he is 12-17 on TV and 1-4 at PPV.

      • Cubed56

        With the quality of matches Jericho puts on, he will always have a spot in the top tier.

  • Stephen Cash

    Another PPV loss for Jericho. Ryback will finally win one though….

  • The Ignored Monster

    What I would do for the WHC MITB match would be have one of the Shield (maybe Rollins) win it. And then they would start to break apart slowly from each other over greed for the shot at the title. Then after one of them have won the world title they fight in a triple threat at Wrestlemania for the belt.

  • Kevin S Lehman

    anybody hear anything about Edge coming back to WWE possibly as the GM?

    • Robbie

      Very very very much doubt it

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Pure rumor. If you don’t read it here, I’d take it as nothing more than that.

    • Simon Veitch

      Doubt it, but hell if WWE did do that I would definitely be on board for it

  • Xavier

    Henry is the most underrated talker on the mic in the ‘E’ right now

    • Cubed56

      True definition of hard work paying off in Henry

      • Xavier

        Say bro, do you have a facebook page? I started this wrestling group on Facebook a few months back but I only have 13 members so far and I’m looking too add more knowledgeable wrestling fans to the group to get more conversations started and to get more of a everyday flow to the group. If you interested feel free to join

        https://www.facebook.com/groups/thatswhatwedo/

        • Cubed56

          Thanks, ill take a look into it for sure.

  • The Breaker

    Henry is killing it on mic!

    • BlazeKing

      Too bad the crowd killed the promo with the excessive “What?” chants… It needs to die now that it’s just being overused out of it’s intended context. It also makes the crowd like stupid when they say it over 15 times in a row and they don’t even realize it. The fans need to watch the attitude era clips to see how it’s supposed to go. You’re not supposed to ruin promos with it.

      • The Breaker

        They do go overboard with those chants, but at least Henry knows how to handle them.

        • BlazeKing

          I thought that chant died after WM :(
          The night after WM showed people how to chant correctly, hahaha!

  • Cubed56

    “This ain’t no men’s wearhouse” lol. I don’t know why but I laughed my ass off at that

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Especially considering the issues Men’s Wearhouse is having right now from a PR perspective!

      • Cubed56

        That had alot to do with why I laughed

  • The Ignored Monster

    “They say we’re coming, but we’ve been here all along.”

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sounds to me like there is a new family member already on the main roster…

      • The Ignored Monster

        Bryan’s got the beard lol

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Come on Wyatt Family. Debut Already!

      • Cubed56

        Maybe Orton or Bryan, Bryan has the cult look, and Orton and Harris have a history.

        • Cubed56

          Harris? my bad still thought of him as husky Harris for a second.

      • Tim

        I heard something about the machine. Which got my hopes up for Kane. But Kane ist a stable person

  • Stephen Cash

    With voting how do the wrestlers know what to do. Like if its falls count anywhere how do they know where to go?

    • Stephen Cash

      Do they just have to learn three matches?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They plan out a general spot plan for the match and discuss how it would go between the different stipulations.

  • The Ignored Monster

    I can’t see this match ending clean either.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      If it is the Street Fight or Falls Count Anywhere, it has to!

    • Stephen Cash

      Bryan is going to get the W, like he was originally supposed to last week.

  • The Breaker

    I miss the days when wrestlers would come out for a Street Fight wearing jeans.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed! Or when wrestlers would get surprised during promos and have to fight in their street clothes!

      • Tim

        Or when street fights actually left the ringside

        • Jesse Sherwood

          And ended up in the streets!

  • Stephen Cash

    Will Randy get in trouble for the head shot?

    • Cubed56

      Maybe, but he barely swung if at all, Bryan more jumped into it arms first.

  • The Breaker

    Was that a chair shot to the head?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Looks like Orton and Bryan are going to be paying fines!

    • Cubed56

      I think it was discussed and approved to make the intensity of this feud look better, like I said Orton barely swung if at all, Bryan jumped into it arms first also.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It may have been, but you would think Taker and HHH’s shot would have too.

        • Cubed56

          Good point.

  • Scott

    Oh lord! Chairshot to the head! I bet Vince is flipping out right now!

  • Stephen Cash

    I’m really starting to love Randy Orton again! I was a big fan then he got boring, and the suspension, but I don’t know he’s doing something different that is making me like him again

  • Cubed56

    Now that may be a tongue lashing, throwing in the direction of Bryan’s head.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Powerbomb by Bryan! Amazing!

  • Cubed56

    Oops!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This is a good ol’ fashioned slobberknocker folks!

  • BlazeKing

    Daniel Bryan: The Whole F’n Beard!!!
    (But really, that Kick+Kendo combo was insane.)

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I prefer the Rabid Squirrel!

      • BlazeKing

        Lol!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I dubbed that one in the Breakdown because his ring style is so similar to Benoit’s.

  • Stephen Cash

    Randy Orton drop kick = best ever

  • Cubed56

    I know Bryan brings out the best in people, but my god this the best Orton has looked in forever.

    • Stephen Cash

      It looks like he cares again. He went through a time there where he just was over it or something.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed! Orton is a totally different person since he has started working with him!

  • The Breaker

    This is an amazing TV match!

  • Xavier

    Orton’s pop has been as big as Bryan’s. Great match by both men BTW

  • Stephen Cash

    I would love to see RVD vs. RKO, pick up where they left off.

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

    YES!

  • The Breaker

    Great finish!

  • Cubed56

    Absolutely incredible!

  • Stephen Cash

    YES YES YES YES!!!!

  • BlazeKing

    Now *that* was a match!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Awesome match. So proud of Daniel Bryan

  • Stephen Cash

    Heel turn?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    If he still has doubters, this one match shows that Daniel Bryan has truly made it in WWE!

  • Stephen Cash

    They keep teasing the RKO heel turn… I want it to happen.

  • Cubed56

    That look in ortons eyes outside the ring gets me thinking he’s gonna be going back to that ruthless heel I absolutely loved

    • Xavier

      Let’s hope so.

      • Cubed56

        When he finally does its gonna be epic, I’m gonna mark out louder then I did when Ziggler cashed in

        • Jesse Sherwood

          They are building Orton’s pops with Bryan’s so they can do an Austin level turn here. It will be one for the ages!

          • Cubed56

            No doubt.

  • Tim

    Where the hell was Kane

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Working with the correct opponent can do wonders for a wrestler.

  • Robbie

    One hell of a match!

  • Stephen Cash

    I definitely think people on this site are under rating Orton’s abilities. Bryan is the best I’ve ever seen, but it’s not like Orton is near the bottom in any sense.

    • Xavier

      I agree, this was no carry job.

      • Cubed56

        Yo my man I put in a request for your facebook page.

        • Xavier

          I accepted. BTW, my real name is Andre Holly

          • Cubed56

            Thanks. My real name is Tylor Torstenson, but by now I’m sure you’ve figured that out.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Both of you, feel free to add me as well. Always willing to talk wrestling!

          • Robbie

            Also me!

          • Cubed56

            Just click on the link Xavier posted for me and it takes you right to the page and click join group and he will add you.

        • Xavier

          Free free to add people

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Orton isn’t near the bottom, but he has been skating by for months now. This feud has rejuvenated his career.

      • Stephen Cash

        Skating by because his out side choices not in ring abilities.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          His ring work got very formulaic as well as his promos. He seemed to lose his passion for the business. I’m just glad he found that fire yet again. Things are definitely looking up!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Thanks to everyone tonight for making tonight the most commented Watch Party yet! Let me thank you by giving you some news. I will be interviewing Matt Striker here on WNW very soon! Date and time will be coming soon, but look forward to it!

    • The Breaker

      Very cool! I heard him do a radio interview today and he was quite candid. Should be interesting!

  • chris

    Henry blows!!!

  • Robbie

    3 good shows in a row. Thought they wasn’t capable of it

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’s the power of proper booking! If it is true that Heyman and Colter are in the Creative, then that explains a lot. But if not, that shows that a little freedom goes a long way because VKM is obviously not trying to control it as much.

  • Smart Mark

    No Cesaro tonight?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope. I’m betting they are going to keep him on Smackdown for the time being to help build him up.

  • Kem_R

    What was crazy about that Orton Vs. Bryan match is that Orton Didnt do his 3 or 4 moves of doom (2 clothelines & the powerslam)… Hmmm Perhaps a Heel Turn in a bit!

  • Robert Olley

    Just watched raw and what was up with the crowd tbh ive seen and heard more excitment in a library

  • Mohan Ramnath

    ADR was always boring. I only liked to see the cars thats it.
