Recap of Battleground, specifically the main event when Big Show punched out Bryan, then the ref, then Orton to leave the match with an open ending at 25 minutes.

In Ring Segment

Justin announces Steph to the ring. Steph out in a white and black dress, black blazer, pink ribbon her her chest, black heeled booties, and her hair pulled back off her face.

Steph – Last night the main event was compromised. It was ruined. I’m angry. Bryan and Orton are ruined. All for the actions of one selfish man. That man will have to answer to all of us. Get out here, Big Show.

After a bit of a pause Big Show’s music hits and he comes out the ring, nodding to fans on his way by. Into the ring he grabs a mic.

Big Show – Now listen, Steph…

Steph – Shut up! I know you’re pressure, here and at home, when you’re under pressure you make bad decisions. You knocked out officials, Bryan and Orton. What do you have to say for yourself?

Big Show – Sorry.

Steph – Eh, sorry. You can’t even say that with any conviction. You’re damn right you’re sorry. You’re a sorry pathetic excuse for life. We’ve bailed you out, bought your mortgage. No wonder you’re broke, you can’t even manage yourself. You can’t even do your job. It’s time you man up and take responsibility for your actions.

Big Show – Man up? Okay, can I go now?

Steph – No, can’t go now! (The last two words punctuated with Steph jamming her finger into Big Show’s chest, very hard.) Let me put this to you really clearly. We don’t just own your home, we own you. You don’t have the right to free will. You don’t do anything in this company unless I or my husband personally approve it. Now it’s time that you beg these people for forgiveness. On your knees and beg!

“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”

Big Show shakes his head slowly.

Steph – You can’t even do that. You have no heart. You don’t have a soul.

Big Show – You want me to apologize?

Steph – No, I want you to beg.

Big Show – You want me to beg?

Steph – Beg!

Big Show – I’m not begging. I knocked out Orton because I couldn’t take it any more. I knocked out Bryan because you told me to.

Steph – Typical. Trying to twist this around, we weren’t even here last night. Brad Maddox…

Big Show – Maddox, we know he’s your puppet for you and your son of a bitch husband.

Steph slaps Big Show across the face, and he smiles.

Steph – What are you going to do about it Show?

Steph slaps Big Show across the face again, and his smile grows wider.

Steph – You gonna cry? (slap, slap) You gonna cry like a baby? (slap, slap, slap) I tell you whay you’re going to do, nothing, because you’re fired.

Big Show smiles evilly.

Steph – GET OUT!

Big Show leaves the ring yelling about being fired. Steph glares up the ramp after him.

In Ring Segment

Heyman – My name is Paul Heyman, and I am the best in the world. The record books reflect that, because I’m the only man who can claim I beat Punk with both hands tied behind my back. Admittedly Punk has bragging rights of his own, last night he pinned Ryback. What the record books should reflect is that Punk is a bully and a cheater as well. (stills of Punk will a mule kick on Ryback)

Punk’s music, and out her comes, bent over as if he’d been mule kicked, laughing. He plays to the fans, but stays on stage. “CM Punk!” chants.

Punk – Are you calling me a cheater? That’s a relative term. I admit to no wrong doing, only to winning. Maybe I kicked Ryback in the balls, I did it to see if he actually had any.

Heyman – You will never have a chance to do that again. I promise you…

Punk – Everybody here knows your promises mean squat. Not only can I, but I will beat Ryback again. You three goofs are out here to issue a rematch? I accept. I’ll do it here. I’ll do it tomorrow. I’ll do it at HIAC. That is what you get when you’re a bully and pick on someone who’s smarter than you.

Heyman (to Ryback) – He’s bullying you, and I want you to do something about it.

Ryback – First of all Punk, if you had any balls, I’d have hit you in them a long time ago. You think you’re some sort of tough guy, you’re a bolly. Why don’t you bring yourself to this ring and I’ll bolly you.

    Hello! I think tonight’s going to be in an interesting RAW, especially after last night’s Battleground. I’m expecting the OTP to be wild tonight. What are your thoughts on all that’s gone down?

    • Xavier

      I’m guessing we’ll get Bryan/Orton at Hell In A Cell with Big Show as special guest ref. Show cost both guys the title last night so Bryan & Orton will have tons of animosity towards him.

    • CJ Blaze

      Tonight should be interesting to say the least! Maybe WWE will make up for last night in some way…..

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

        I think they have to make up for the craptastic matches leading up to the Rhodes and Shield match, and booking Ryback in any match, but I don’t think they have to make up for not strapping a champ last night. I know Richard has an issue with it, but I think it’s about time they change things up, cause problems, and make the storylines unexpected.

        • CJ Blaze

          Well we did get the unexpected storyline in Cena vs. ADR!

  • iwc

    raw better b a whole lot better than the crap i watched last nite. if bryan doesnt win the title at hiac i will be pissed

  • Danny Philippi

    Hello. I hope tonight is a night of clarity and not about clouding the storylines even more. Hope they announce Orton v. Bryan at Hell in a Cell early in the show.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hello everyone! I have the kiddos tonight, so no 5 Point Preview, but after Battleground, I am really looking forward to Raw!

    • Xavier

      What’s good Jesse, what did you think of the no contest finish last night?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, considering I called it, I think it was a necessary evil. With as heated as this rivalry as become, the only way to decide it is inside the Devil’s Playground.

        • Xavier

          I agree, I had no problem with the way it ended. I thought it was pretty obvious that a champion wouldn’t be crowned. If WWE did anything wrong it was not having the Rhodes Family/Shield end the show. Cody got the Daniel Bryan treatment after the match. He’s super over right now. WWE may have push him further up the card then expected which could be problematic for the Bryan/Orton/Big Show/Triple H angle

      • savokes

        Nice to see you back X…missed in the thread last week

        • Xavier

          It’s good to be missed. I was at the Rangers/Rays game last week.

      • savokes

        *you

    • savokes

      Just not to the inevitable HHH/Steph opening 20 minutes….

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Very true! But considering they were called to an “Emergency Meeting” last night, I expect something interesting on that front.

  • Justin Mayo

    Party can start now, guys! I have arrived!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    As another point, I’d like to wish AJ Lee some luck and a speedy recovery, as she was sent home tonight with possible concussion symptoms.

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

      Crap, I hadn’t read that. Poor thing. Hope she’s okay.

    • Justin Mayo

      Well, there goes the Diva’s division

  • Danny Philippi

    Scary that this time last year, CM punk and Ryback main evented Hell in a Cell. Now they can’t have the time or place near the main event spotlight. Just shows this is a “what you have done lately” business.

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

      I think a big part is the ebb and flow, but Bryan has been so over with the fans, and Ryback has proven that he shouldn’t be anywhere near any main events.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      What’s even scarier is that the match could repeat this year as a co-main event!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Evening everybody. Can’t wait to see what’s the fallout from Battleground tonight

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hey Navin! What is the segment tonight you are looking forward to most?

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        I can’t wait to see where they go with The Rhodes Family. I am hoping for something for Cesaro. And of course Paul Heyman (not Ryback) will be gold as usual

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Color me crazy, but I thought Ryback did well in the ring last week with Heyman. It seems like he is trying to learn from Paul, although he could still use a piece of humble strudel.

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

            What color is crazy?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Red, with speckles of black, blue, yellow and brown.

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

            Now I’m dizzy!

          • David Jr.

            In Detroit it’s Teal.

          • Navin T. Ramkissoon

            You do raise a good point there. But WWE on the whole has not given me a legitimate reason to care for Ryback anymore. This alliance with Heyman is sink or swim for him. People may still care about but I currently don’t

          • Justin Mayo

            you’re already crazy. this is obvious!

  • BrooksOglesby

    I’m marginally interested in the Daniel Bryan/Triple H saga, and I’m interested to see where the WHC picture goes from here (hopefully far, far away from Del Rio), but far and away, I’m most interested to see the Rhodes family. Cody seemed to get the kind of reaction he hadn’t received since Money in the Bank, and I hope he can ride that momentum and solidify himself as a guy to cheer for. I’m pleased with Goldust hanging around for any amount of time, as well.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, anyone else think after Zeb’s promo on ADR and Canadians last night we could see Christian become ADR’s next opponent?

    • David Jr.

      Is there any other Canadians in the WWE?

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

        Santino

        • David Jr.

          I knew Santino but the WWE doesn’t say he’s from Canada.

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

            You asked.

          • David Jr.

            I asked because Jesse brought up the question and I was wondering if there was anyone other than Christian that they could use to represent Canada.

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

            Cranky?

          • David Jr.

            No?

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

            Okay, just seem a bit short tonight. Had to ask.

          • Justin Mayo

            Play nice, kids! Must I call Dr. Shelby?

          • David Jr.

            I’d rather talk to Dr. Claire Callahan (Kendra might know who that is).

          • Justin Mayo

            I hope so, because I’m lost!

          • David Jr.

            It was the name of the Psychiatrist for season 3 of Haven, her and I have talked about Haven before on Smackdown watch party.

          • Justin Mayo

            AH! Sort of want to catch it, but would rather watch it from the beginning, and my net isn’t the best for watching shows

      • Justin Mayo

        Jericho. Not currently contracted, but the way he’s always in and out, can’t be ruled out

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nattie! She could be the first female WHC! And Tyson Kidd.

        • David Jr.

          Both would be better WHC than Del Rio.

  • The Breaker

    I’m honestly not all that intrigued with most of what’s going on right now. Creative is really missing the boat with how they’ve been building storylines as of late. And then there’s also the atrocious booking of the Battleground main event. I think that something WWE rarely does is consider the viewpoint of its consumers and how that will affect the product in the short term. It seems like they’re often too worried about reaching their own goals for the long haul than selling a product that people will want to buy into each and every time there’s a PPV.

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

      I find it interesting at how far apart the fans are on this subject. I have little issue with that they did. I see the problems with it, but I’m also glad to see them stepping away from the obvious and changing things up. It’s been a long time since we’ve been without a Champ, and why not try some different things? It’s not helping the short term issues, but it’s also not hurting them right now.

      • The Breaker

        Change for the sake of change isn’t always the best solution.

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

          No, it’s not, but many fans have found it interesting. Many have not, just saying that at least they’re trying new things. Hasn’t worked well for TNA either, but at least they’re trying things, rather than staying with the static and boring ways they had been doing things.

          • The Breaker

            True, but people are getting frustrated with how things are going to the point that they’re tuning out.

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

            They have been tuning out for quite a while.

          • The Breaker

            Depends on how far you want to go back. But the numbers keep going down. I’ll be interested to see how Battleground did.

  • Xavier

    I have a feeling RAW will start off with Stephanie addressing The Big Show in the ring.

    • Justin Mayo

      Or Triple H. But it has to be either Show or Rhodes to kick off raw.

    • Justin Mayo

      You know what? Gimme some winning lottery numbers, please

      • Xavier

        LMAO

        • Jesse Sherwood

          *Pulls out Sonic Screwdriver* I have my eye on you…

          • Justin Mayo

            -Summons the Silencers- (think that’s what they’re called, anyways)

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Silence, and I know to keep tally marks!

          • Justin Mayo

            -Looks to the side for a second and then back- ok, who was I gonna summon?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            EXTERMINATE!!!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Creative really needs to step up their game tonight in order to sell people on Hell in a Cell.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Especially with the last two PPVs. Any non-ICW fan must be wondering why WWE would keep the title held up this long.

  • Danny Philippi

    On a side note, today is Day 7 of the government shutdown. It has been 7 weeks since John Cena’s last live appearance on Raw. What will come first: Cena comes back on Raw or the U.S. government reopening?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hmm… That is too tough to call! I vote we let WWE take over Congress! That would make things go so much quicker!

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

        Linda in charge of Congress? Think about what you’re saying!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          No HHH as Speaker of the House, Steph as Senate Majority Head, and VKM for President!

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

            Then Linda is Hilary? Somewhat better.

        • David Jr.

          Well she can’t be worse than who’s in there now.

    • Xavier

      Lol, hopefully the government reopening, that’s costing the US $200 million a day. Cena rehabing isn’t hurting the economy lol

    • savokes

      Lets take a vote and and have the WWE Universe use the WWE APP to cast their opinions **after Cole tells us how to DL an app and install to our smartphone** Choice A…Cena, Choice B…Government

  • Nostaljack

    Dag, it’s already goin’ in here. That was fast. I had the best time last night!!!

    • Justin Mayo

      Quick, everyone hide before he sees us!…oh, hey Nostaljack! How are ya?

      • Nostaljack

        LOL! Any more love in this room?

        • Justin Mayo

          No clue. there might be, but what do I know, I’m just a baking pan!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Sprays non stick spray in his eyes and starts cooking Mexican food in him*

          • Justin Mayo

            NO!!!!! I’m a non-stick pan!

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

      Ed! Nice to see you. We start at 7:28EST. But now I’m going to write RAW! Lucky me!

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

      Ed, find me on FB so we can talk about a few things.

      • Nostaljack

        Got it.

  • Danny Philippi

    One minute till Showtime!

  • Nostaljack

    I see logo!!!

  • savokes

    HERE WE GO!

  • mezzmer

    Big show will be the new champ

  • Robbie

    Daaaaaaaaaaang Steph looks good tonight

  • Danny Philippi

    Stephanie McMahon going to scald Big Show like what my eight grade English teacher did to me 10 years ago.

    • Xavier

      Lol

  • The Breaker

    I wonder if someone else actually ordered Big Show to knock everyone out, and not just Daniel Bryan like people think.

    • Xavier

      Vince maybe, heard he’s suppose to be returning as a face soon

      • The Breaker

        I hear that Vince is in the building tonight, so it’s possible.

        • Xavier

          Yeah I’m thinking it’s Vince for sure now with that last line Steph just dropped

    • Nostaljack

      Eric Bischoff!

      • The Breaker

        Better yet, Johnny Ace!

        • Justin Mayo

          Even better, it was Dixie! her failed attempt at sabotage!

          • The Breaker

            Big Show is Team Dixie!

          • Justin Mayo

            He’s riding the Dixie train!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            NOOOOOOO!!!!

          • The Breaker

            Pretty sure he would squash the Dixie train….

            I didn’t need that visual! X_x

          • Justin Mayo

            well since Sandow’s out, I feel justified in saying You’re Welcome!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            We didn’t thank you! We cursed you!

          • David Jr.

            Doggies from Outerspace eat applesauce, You’re Welcome.
            Oh wait that was Perry Saturn.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Watermelons have lips so they can kiss froggies! You’re Welcome!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          No more People Power!

  • Nostaljack

    WEEEELLLLLLL

  • savokes

    Good call again Xavier!

  • Danny Philippi

    Steph heavy on the rum and light on the Coke tonight.

  • Nostaljack

    “Eh, sorry”….ROFL!!!

    • Justin Mayo

      Great answer!

  • Xavier

    Steph has this sort of naughty teacher vibe to her with the way she degrades everyone like they are teenagers.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Was that a Knock Her Out Chant?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep!

    • Xavier

      Lol yeah

  • K!NG

    LOL big show is showing why he is one of the best.

  • Robbie

    Vince will come out

  • Danny Philippi

    Twelve years ago, it was Vince asking Trish to beg. Better image.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Show doesn’t have a soul? What is he, a ginger?

    • K!NG

      lol

  • Justin Mayo

    No soul? I thought Show was a natural brunette, not ginger!

  • savokes

    DUN DUN DUUNNNNNNN

  • savokes

    Steph going hard!

  • The Breaker

    Cue Vince!

  • Xavier

    Oh snap! ish just got real

  • Cubed56

    i hope they fire the makeup person, has anyone else noticed how bad steph’s makeup is?

  • Nostaljack

    Cool six man!!!

  • K!NG

    no commentary there?

  • Xavier

    Interesting that they’re booking Cody with Bryan tonight.

  • savokes

    Random Main Event Match image with no explanation haha

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Show is fired? The last time a main event star was fired, they caused all sorts of mayhem and never left TV!

    • Xavier

      Vince will rehire him

      • Jesse Sherwood

        My point is, does Creative really expect us to suspend disbelief here? “Fired” Superstars rarely are, and they just gave Show free reign to torment The Authority.

    • The Breaker

      With the rampage Show has been on, I’m surprised they didn’t have security escort him out!

    • savokes

      Steph slapped him like 7 times and Show just ate all of them like they were nothing and smirked…He’s definitely going to cause some hell later tonight, he’s going to take it out on HHH, I smell HHH/Show @ an upcoming PPV

  • Danny Philippi

    I know this is WWE but I swore son of a can’t be said on TV-PG airwaves.lol

  • Nostaljack

    Big Show didn’t act like a nancy tonight. Cool!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Props for calling him a nancy!

  • Cubed56

    did anyone who watched battleground last night see cody give the Harley race high knee to rollins then give him the dx chop telling him to suck it, before staring and pointing at the camera?

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’m just glad Big Show isn’t on his knees crying.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Gah My Internet Connection Died on me Mid Promo. What Did I Miss?

    • Justin Mayo

      Show’s “fired” and walked out

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Thanks. Raw Replay Actually Helped Me Catch Up

        • Justin Mayo

          well excuuuuuuuse me :( lol

  • K!NG

    Rhodes is the real next big thing

  • Danny Philippi

    Let me predict what happens next, a Tag Team match featuring Los Matadores.

  • Cubed56

    is my man Xavier here?

    • Justin Mayo

      Hey cubed! yeah, he came back this week too!

    • Xavier

      What up bro

      • Cubed56

        there he is, glad to have you back! I agree with your assessment of last nights main event, but you see where im coming from with that opening segment, it feels like DB and Orton are now second fiddle to big show vs steph and HHH

        • Xavier

          I agree. Big Show/Triple H & Rhodes/Shield seem to have taking more of a priority

          • Cubed56

            honestly the only way ill be ok with how crappy this creative process has been is if cody Rhodes comes out of it with a world title reign at some point. for me there is no saving DB/Orton ater last night, ive lost all interest in their storyline.

          • Xavier

            I’m all for Cody getting a title reign. I stated earlier that Cody getting as over as he is could become problematic for Bryan/Orton with the way fans are losing interest in it and the way fans are becoming more invested in this Rhodes/Shield stuff. It’s interesting that they’re booking Cody with Bryan tonight. I think there is possibly more to that pairing tonight then just a random six man tag match

          • Cubed56

            Agreed. Ive been a huge fan of cody’s since his legacy days. Hes worked hard and earned his spot and improves his in ring and mic work a lot along the way. Id love to see DB and Rhodes in match with a title on the line.

          • Xavier

            It’s funny to look back at things. Ted Jr was the one who was suppose to benefit the most from Legacy and now look lol.

          • Cubed56

            I thought the same thing.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Honestly, it feels like they are trying to move Orton/Bryan away from The Authority’s storyline. (Yes, that is the name WWE has decided for them.)

          • Cubed56

            I feel the same way, and I feel its a big mistake.

    • Justin Mayo

      and he owes me winning lotto numbers

      • Cubed56

        ive got biff’s book, I can hook you up with some winners.

        • Justin Mayo

          sweet, thanks bro!

          • Cubed56

            one condition, you never ever mention my name when you hand in the winners, and you give me a 20% cut.

          • Justin Mayo

            before or after taxes?

          • Cubed56

            Im a nice guy, ill let you decide that.

          • Justin Mayo

            choices…choices…which one…which..one…BAKA!!!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Hey! Don’t steal my lines!

          • Justin Mayo

            Too late!

  • Nostaljack

    Damien Sandow about to job again. Lovely.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And our first match is a Battleground Rematch! Sandow vs. Ziggler!

  • Alex Gallardo

    HIAC is already in 3 weeks. WWE are having way too many PPVS so quickly.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’s always a quick turnaround in the time coming up to Survivor Series.

  • Danny Philippi

    Oh gosh, let’s have a match that anyone can see on YouTube be repeated on Raw.

    • K!NG

      kinda like the whole dbry and orton feud lets have a match 3 times one ppv when they had 3 matches on raw for free

  • Xavier

    It’s pretty safe to say that Ziggler lost his spot to Cody

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I really want Sandow to start winning some matches and get a modicum of momentum and credibility back

    • Nostaljack

      He was doing so well and then they decided to bury the guy. No clue why they think it’s a good idea to do that to MITB winners.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        They really need to stop doing that. How do they expect the people to care for the contract holders when they actually do cash it in?

    • The Breaker

      Sandow would probably appreciate your use of the word ‘modicum’.

    • K!NG

      i want sandow to actualy have a match thats longer then 10 minutes. so i can see how he does when given the time

  • David Jr.

    Like Jim Ross said. Ziggler and Sandow are wrestling, and the Announcers are talking about everything but the match. Though I don’t think it’s Cole, JBL and Lawlers doing.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I don’t even really listen to the commentators anymore.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        You’re listening to Bangerz again, aren’t you?

        • Alex Gallardo

          The stream they had ins’t there anymore. So I have to buy the album later this month. I’m still listening to her VMA performance.

  • K!NG

    my 3 year old is calling more of the match then the announcer’s

  • The Breaker

    At this point Sandow will probably have an inconsequential reign as WHC, just like Ziggler.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, if WWE wants to restore some prestige to the WHC, they need to have Sandow hold it for a good 8-12 months after winning it.

      • Xavier

        I think the only way they can restore prestige in the title is to bring back the brand split. The WHC needs it’s own show

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Amen, but that will never happen again unless there is viable competition for WWE.

          • Xavier

            I thought the WHC was doing fine until WWE started doing RAW supershows in mid to late 2011.

          • David Jr.

            I don’t understand, WWE’s most viable competition was WCW, and they only had one world title when they were competing with WCW.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            What I meant is that until WWE has competition, they won’t do another brand split because they aren’t worried about the strength of their product. If WWE had some competition, then they’d focus on their storylines and on re-establishing the prestige of the titles, thus most likely bringing back the Brand split so they can have each show zeroed in on their renewed focus on the titles and stars.

      • The Breaker

        Del Rio has held the title for quite a while, and that’s done it no good.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Sadly, this is his longest reign, at 113 days. Before, he had reigns at 90, 49, and 35 days with both the WHC and WWE Titles.

          • David Jr.

            Alberto Del Rio is a 4 time World Champion, you know who else is a 4 time World Champion? Shawn Michaels. That’s pathetic that Del Rio has been champion as many times as HBK.

          • Xavier

            Not really, the circumstances were a lot different when Shawn was in his prime, Only 1 title. Also have to take into account that HBK was sidelined for four years with a bad back

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Also, HBK is one of those guys that defined the title, not have the title define him.

          • Xavier

            Agreed

      • K!NG

        So what about the two lengthy title reigns between sheamus and del rio ?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Del Rio is on day 113 of this reign.

          • K!NG

            yeah but total this year is over 200+ days

          • Jesse Sherwood

            True, but he has been booked weak in each separate reign. Name me one memorable moment in his two reigns this year.

          • Gesus Oliver

            was he champ when he hit santa? that’s pretty much 2013…That’s all I have…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It was shortly after that.

          • K!NG

            the booking cant be blamed on him and he does the best with what he is given.

          • K!NG

            though this past feud with rvd has been decent as well as his first feud with big show

  • Robbie

    Hey guys, I’m afraid I won’t be able to interact much tonight, but please don’t use me as an excuse to leave because of boredom :)

    • Nostaljack

      Are you *the* Robbie…the one with whom we were interacting last night?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yes he is.

        • Nostaljack

          Well, it won’t be the same without him then. He was part of what made last night so much fun!

          • Robbie

            Of course I was.

          • Nostaljack

            It was your humility that made everything such a stone gas. It was the most…to say the least…;)

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Who are you again?

    • Justin Mayo

      I’ll keep an eye out for you in the “don’t try this at home” videos, bro!

  • Danny Philippi

    I know I am not the latest one to notice that Dolph Ziggler looks like Bad Ass Billy Gunn.

    • Justin Mayo

      What has been seen cannot be unseen

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He has for years, and the fact he uses the Fame-Asser doesn’t help!

      • Cubed56

        didn’t gunn train him?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Nope, Steve Keirn, Lance Storm, and Tom Prichard.

          • Cubed56

            Alright i thought i read somewhere gunn helped him along the way, and i know doplh has said gunn was one of his favorites, i think that’s why he resembles him and uses the fame-asser

    • K!NG

      yeah which is why i dont take dolph seriously plus he uses his moves

  • Nostaljack

    Blood in Sandow’s mouff

  • Justin Mayo

    So start off raw with a Batleground kickoff rematch…yeah, fans’ll love that!

    and that’s how creative thinks

  • Gesus Oliver

    Have no fear Gesus is here. What’d I miss?

    • Justin Mayo

      i’m the new WWE champion

      • Nostaljack

        Careful. I have the MITB briefcase!

        • Justin Mayo

          -throws it in the sea- not anymore

          • Nostaljack

            NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! (jumps in after it)

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Ed can’t swim! *Tosses him a meat life preserver*

  • Nostaljack

    Another job for Sandow…just as I figured…

  • K!NG

    oh you didn’t know??

  • Gesus Oliver

    Just woke up from a nap saw a ppv rematch on raw. What is this TNA? Let’s be honest Batleground was a TNA (in 2012) level ppv.

  • The Breaker

    He used the Fame-Asser as a finisher? That makes Sandow look pretty bad, given that everyone else has kicked out after it.

  • Cubed56

    For god sake steph get that makeup redone, you look like an oompa loompa

  • The Breaker

    Are we supposed to feel sympathy for Maddox?

  • Danny Philippi

    Stephanie’s one-girl menopause trip is lowering the boom tonight.

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

      She’s too young for that! It must be that time of the month.

    • Gesus Oliver

      She’s a little young yet for menopause. Nice biology.

  • savokes

    Dang! Steph just rubbed Maddox’s nose in his mistake like one rubs a dogs nose in its own pee as a puppy to make sure they don’t pee on the carpet again.

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

      And we all know that doesn’t work with dogs, but it looks like it worked on Maddox!

      • savokes

        hahah, touche

      • David Jr.

        We talked about this on Smackdown, dogs shall never be mentioned around wrestling because dogs and wrestling don’t mix.

        • Justin Mayo

          Junkyard Dog?

          • David Jr.

            I mean actual dogs, Lucy, Matilda, Pepper.

          • Justin Mayo

            Pepper steak! I actually loved that as a kid, his reaction when he found out he ate his dog. And Foley gave out Val Venis’ number as an information hotline for fans to call with information about Pepper.

          • David Jr.

            It lead to Kennel from Hell. enough said.

    • Justin Mayo

      Bad Brad! Bad! Look what you did! No! Bad!

  • Gesus Oliver

    It’s nice to see them ramp up the Corporate angle and solidify they’re heel after being int he gray for a few weeks. They really needed to establish that fact to move forward.

    • The Breaker

      Steph has been a full on heel the entire time. It’s just that Triple H for whatever reason decides he wants to be a good guy sometimes.

      • Gesus Oliver

        That is good point. My issue has been when a hot crowd like Chicago is confused something is wrong.

      • Mark3man

        I disagree here, think about it…the hhh character is telling fans he is doing the best for business, which in turn is best for them…it makes perfect sense for his promo’s to come across face like, while we all know he’s a heel, he doesn’t think he is

        • The Breaker

          I understand that part. But he shouldn’t be saying and doing things that will make people pop for him. The times that he is obviously playing the role of a heel authority figure are weakened by the fact that some people are wanting to cheer him three segments later.

  • Nostaljack

    BRUNO!!!!!

  • Xavier

    Imagine if the IWC was around during Bruno’s seven year title reign lol.

    • K!ng

      no i don’t want imagine that

    • Cubed56

      it would’ve been awesome. talk about the true love him or hate him guy, that would’ve been Bruno had the iwc been there.

  • Nostaljack

    Those are some seriously cauliflowered ears.

  • K!NG

    the living legend

  • Nostaljack

    Cool! The bathroom break again!

    • savokes

      You read my mind

  • Justin Mayo

    Am I the only one who thinks Bruno strongly resembles Warluigi?

  • Xavier

    How are they gonna have divas match without Naomi and her booty? :-(

  • Jesse Sherwood

    We are getting Eva and JoJo’s in ring debut!

  • The Breaker

    Eva Marie and Jojo are both in the ring? This had better be short…

  • Nostaljack

    Eva is incredibly sloppy. Why am I watching this? LOL!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Why can’t Eva Marie and Jo Jo take the Rampage Jackson/ Tito Ortiz route and leave WWE then start going back to what they’re good for.

  • Xavier

    Is JoJo dating Orton now?

    • Ashley

      Well she is the only person he is following on Twitter

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Oh sweet Overlords no… That’s like the third Superstar she’s been with since Mania!

        • Ashley

          Well, worked for others!

          • Xavier

            Didn’t work for Ariel though. Batista kicked her to the curve and got her fired

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And it’s a shame too! Shelly Martinez was the stuff of my dreams back then!

          • Ashley

            I dont remember her

          • Jesse Sherwood

            She was Kevin Thorn’s vampire valet.

          • Ashley

            oooh, now I do! hmm, didnt know her and Batista were together. only knew of melina

        • Xavier

          She’s young & naive lol

          • Jesse Sherwood

            She’s turning into a ring rat!

    • The Breaker

      The age difference is pretty gross.

      • Xavier

        I agree, she’s 19 but has the body of a 14 year old. I have no idea what the hell Orton is thinking.

        • Ashley

          He is newly divorced, that is what he is thinking.

        • The Breaker

          Well they do call him the Apex Predator…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I see it now!

            NEW on NBC: To Catch An Apex Predator!

          • Xavier

            LMFAO I literally laughed out loud reading that

    • Cubed56

      well when she moves on from him, i hope she knows to put a lock on her duffel and luggage bags.

      • Xavier

        I have a bad feeling it’ll end up really bad for her if she continues to see him. She’s way to long for all that, Orton is also a head case

        • Cubed56

          no doubt

  • Danny Philippi

    A “We want AJ” chant. I hope she can make an appearance tonight but highly unlikely.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      She’s been sent home for possible concussion symptoms

  • Robbie

    Eva really needs to learn how to sell

  • Gesus Oliver

    I saw alicia fox and Aksana in person. They are so tiny!

  • Scott Davies

    WWE wants ratings. Why not have Bruno come out on WWE TV instead of the app

    • Xavier

      Most of the WWE fanbase isn’t very familiar with Bruno.

      • Scott Davies

        Bruno would be an attraction now. An appearance on Raw. Especially in Pittsburg would be special. Old fans would tune in cause its Bruno & it gives young fans a history lesson.

    • Gesus Oliver

      as great as Bruno is, he doesn’t sell tickets or pop ratings anymore. Also there is no point in current story lines.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Eva can’t even tag Natayla in without botching.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Besides, wasn’t Eva a heel?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The Bella’s flipped, so she did as well.

      • Alex Gallardo

        It really doesn’t make sense. She’s just silently left them.

  • The Breaker

    Jojo didn’t even get tagged in. That’s best for business!

    • Nostaljack

      Just about to say that…LOL!

  • Justin Mayo

    Wow, he seems more awkward than a 13 year old boy listening to “the talk” from his parents…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Maddox is very uncomfortable on a live mic.

      • Xavier

        Not as bad as Titus was last night though in the booth lol

      • savokes

        uncomfortable isn’t even the word, seems like he’s downright terrified

  • Nostaljack

    Bryan vs. Orton…again.

  • savokes

    HBk, guest ref?

  • Gesus Oliver

    wow, the chick in the red hair, (JoJo?) has the 5th element look to her.

    • Robbie

      Eva

    • Alex Gallardo

      It’s Eva Marie who has the red hair.

      • Gesus Oliver

        Glad they can build her up on tv…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Eva, and yeah, with a lot less talent!

    • Xavier

      Can I get a OLE!!??

  • The Breaker

    This segment seems out of place, probably due to reshuffling because of AJ’s absence.

  • Nostaljack

    He said “6 time” 5 times…LOL!

    • Cubed56

      i thought i was the only who noticed that

  • The Breaker

    Guesses about the other candidates for guest ref?

    • Nostaljack

      Heath Slater, Buddy Landel, Ernie Ladd, and Abdullah the Butcher.

      • The Breaker

        Well, it has to be a Hall of Famer. So I’m saying Koko B. Ware.

    • K!NG

      flair or foley or austin or hbk

      • The Breaker

        Lower your expectations a bit there man!

  • Justin Mayo

    Thank you, Cole! Now I know how to download the WWE app finally!

  • Robbie

    NO! TO BOTH SHOWING US HOW TO INSTALL THE APP AND THE LOS MATADORES

    • Gesus Oliver

      hey don’t get mad at them, they know we know how to install an app. Just do it.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Why can’t WWE realize Los Matedores DOESN’T WORK?

  • savokes

    **CLAP CLAP** OLE!

  • Danny Philippi

    El Titoro vs. Hornswoggle in a Hell in a Sandbox match! A match Mr. Russo would book before Hogan vs. Bret.

  • The Breaker

    It’s hilarious how King was like “Now don’t get mad as us, we know you all understand how to download an app!”, and then Cole gave him a weird look.

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

    Who won the divas match? I lost my dish due to weather, and Jesse won’t respond to my IMs. He hates me.

    • Gesus Oliver

      rightfully so. team Natty won.

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

        Thanks!

    • savokes

      Natty and the newbies

  • Justin Mayo

    OLE! OLE! OLE! O…give me a break

  • K!NG

    to bad they didnt having the bouncing souls song ole ole ole ole

    • Gesus Oliver

      good song!

      • K!NG

        just glad someone knew what i was talking about !

        • Gesus Oliver

          It’s stuck in my head now! I know what I’m listening to on my way to work!

  • David Jr.

    Hulk Hogan for guest referee, Who’s with me?

    • Robbie

      I was thinking that

      • David Jr.

        You know if he’s one of the choices, he’s winning.

    • Xavier

      That would be epic and completely out of nowhere

    • Gesus Oliver

      Only if it’s on a wrecking ball.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Not again.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Too much Hogan, even for you?

          • Alex Gallardo

            I like Hogan and Miley, but they don’t mix well together.

          • Gesus Oliver

            I beg to differ. It mixed quite well.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I’ll say this. It got talk, but it wasn’t pretty.

          • Gesus Oliver

            That sums up Mr. Nanny.

          • David Jr.

            I never watched the wrecking ball thing with Hogan, was it worse than this?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        NO! I can’t unsee that!

      • Ashley

        That is hands down one of the worst things I have ever seen!

  • Xavier

    When you mess with the bull you get the horn, sorry couldn’t help myself. But atleast the bull doesn’t botch like Sin Cara/

    • Jesse Sherwood

      OLE!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So much for Drew getting separated off of 3MB!

    • savokes

      Aaaaaaaand he takes the pin

    • The Breaker

      I read on that they have him switching between The Chosen One and 3MB on live events like he’s in different territories. lol

  • Gesus Oliver

    Everyone is so eager to jump on Los Matadores for being terrible. Currently I think they’re hilarious and great for that mid card comedy roll that entertains kids. Their gimmick isn’t for us at all. You have to remember there is more than just adults WWE has to cater to. I can think of far worse gimmicks they could do and have done before. Just enjoy this while it lasts for what it is, Comedy.

    • Xavier

      I agree. it’s not nearly as bad as people make it out to be. I think the lil bull is hilarious. And no era had worse gimmicks then the midcard during the attitude era. I can go on for days about that.

      • Gesus Oliver

        It’s no choppy choppy pee pee that’s for damn sure!

        • Xavier

          Lol That may have been the worse. Perry Saturn being in a exclusive relationship with a mop was really bad to

          • Gesus Oliver

            Moppy was hilarious you shut your mouth! Man I still reference that today. Wife hates it when I wipe the floors lol. Swiffer has nothing on moppy!

          • Xavier

            Lol

          • Copeland

            Bravo guys a moppy reference!

          • David Jr.

            Perry Saturn brought up twice in one night. Awesome.

      • Scott Davies

        I’ll give you 2 Mantar & The Shockmaster.

  • Nostaljack

    See what happens when I go grab pizza? I miss NKOT3MB and Los Matadores with El Dorito.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Anyone else going to see Bad Grandpa?

    • Nostaljack

      Why? We have Vince.

      • Alex Gallardo

        LOL.

    • David Jr.

      Are you talking about Escape Plan?

      • Alex Gallardo

        Escape Plan? What the hell is that?

        • David Jr.

          It’s the new movie with Stallone and Schwarrenegger trying to break out of prison.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Well I’m not seeing it. I like watching comedies.

          • David Jr.

            I was making a joke, they are both old, like grandpas and since they’re trying to escape prison, prison people = bad.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Ahh, now I understand.

  • Scott Davies

    I heard Tito Santana saw the Vinettes of Los Matedores & called to sue WWE for gimmick infringement. But then saw the debut & said you can keep it.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wow! 360 comments in an hour! That is a new record guys!

    • Gesus Oliver

      That’s be De Gesus is here.

      • Robbie

        What?

        • Gesus Oliver

          WHAT!

          • Nostaljack

            It’s all Robbie’s doing.

          • Justin Mayo

            Really? Really?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Slaps both Gesus and Robbie* You two better get your acts together! You’re in a tag match against Cubed and Xavier for the Tag Titles tonight!

          • Justin Mayo

            And I’m the referee! #Heel

          • Xavier

            #DannyDavis

          • Robbie

            Me and Gesus? That’s not right

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It’s seeing if two top talents that are opposed to each other can co-exist for a common goal!

          • Gesus Oliver

            Calling Robbie a top talent has to be a Rib right?

          • Robbie

            Nope, calling you a “talent” altogether is a rib.

          • Gesus Oliver

            Worse than Chuck and Billy..

          • Robbie

            Worse than Black Reign and Rellik….

          • Cubed56

            easy win for us.

  • Nostaljack

    Stephanie was just vicious on Big Slow’s face.

  • The Breaker

    CM Punk vs Paul Heyman is a better match on paper than another Punk vs Ryback.

  • K!NG

    man thats the second time punk beat ryback w low blow in october

  • Jesse Sherwood

    It isn’t cheating if you don’t get caught Paul! Isn’t that what you used to say?

    • David Jr.

      I thought that was Jesse.

  • The Breaker

    That was an awkward pause for the ages.

    • Alex Gallardo

      It felt like Paul would shake his head forever.

  • Xavier

    I’m not feeling this Punk & Heyman stuff at all. It’s time for Punk to move on to bigger & better things.

    • Cubed56

      Amen!

  • K!NG

    cant say balls?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope! Can’t directly reference genitalia on TV PG, lest you get an FCC fine!

  • Justin Mayo

    So…you can’t say balls…but you can say Son Of A (censored)?

  • Xavier

    R-Truth turning heel

  • Nostaljack

    I love “Bowly”…LOL!

  • Alex Gallardo

    The censor balls, yet ass and son of a bitch are not censored. Okay then…

  • savokes

    fantastic exchange there haha

  • Scottyo614

    I’m bored out of my mind with this whole show… I’ve already hit the lights and laid down. Something has got to make these next two hours click

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WHAT’S UP!

    • Nostaljack

      WHAT’S UP!!

    • Justin Mayo

      GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN….WHAT’S UP!?

      We’re in Milwaukee, you idiot!

      • Gesus Oliver

        I’m offended by that sir.

        • Justin Mayo

          LMAO it was Truth’s biggest fail on the mic a few years ago

          • Gesus Oliver

            I know, the wife talked to me about it today after listening to a podcast that brought it up lol.

          • Ashley

            You’re in Milwaukee? I live in WI too!

          • Gesus Oliver

            Sweet where abouts?

          • Ashley

            Reedsburg, by the Wisconsin Dells

          • Gesus Oliver

            All that’s cool. I’m from Racine.

          • Gesus Oliver

            You should add me on fb!

          • Ashley

            sent!

          • Cubed56

            Im 25 mins north of green bay

          • Gesus Oliver

            I’m jealous. Are you a packer fan? if so do you go often? You should add me on fb!

          • Cubed56

            huge packer fan, season ticket holder, i think i already have you on fb.

          • David Jr.

            Congratulation on your Packer’s victory, yesterday. Though the score would have been different if Megatron played, Packers probably would have still won, but the Lions would have scored.

          • Cubed56

            that a fair asessment

          • David Jr.

            Yeah I couldn’t say the Lions would have won, since the last time the Lions won in Green Bay, Undertaker was 1-0 at Wrestlemania.

          • Cubed56

            true statement. im actually a huge fan of megatron’s. one of my favorite players, its just a shame he has to play on one of my least favorite teams

          • David Jr.

            Well I’m glad he plays for my favorite team.

          • Justin Mayo

            Can we all have a moment of silence for my Giants, and hope they win for my birthday on thursday?

          • Gesus Oliver

            Nope. I hope they loss in a shut out. #heel

          • Cubed56

            ill be cheering for the giants cause they play my least favorite team the bears. happy b-day early

          • Gesus Oliver

            Crap they play the bears? I’m so torn…My hated for the bears does outweigh my hatred for Mr Mayo…hmmm

          • Justin Mayo

            Thanks sir! I want Eli to get his head out of his backside, and I want Tuck to sack Gesus and put him out of the game haha

          • Cubed56

            they need to fire coughlin man

          • Justin Mayo

            Its not Coughlin, though. He’s a good coach, I think it’s the whole team’s mentality. They rely so much on a few players, and when they’re out injured, the team has no clue what to do. Eli/Cruz is a NASTY combination, but he can’t throw only to Cruz, or it’ll be easily predicted and stopped.

          • Xavier

            I disagree. Couglin is very underrated. His resume in New York is just as good as Parcells.

          • Cubed56

            agreed. but its just one of those things where a guy has been there so long, that a change might be what the franchise needs.

          • Cubed56

            i would love to have him in gb, Rodgers megatron, nelson, and cobb, also jones, unstoppable. if you makes you feel better though i hate the bears and Vikings a hell of a lot more then the lions. honestly i don’t actually really dislike the lions its just they are in the packs division, so it hard for me to cheer for them

          • Gesus Oliver

            My only real beef with the lions are they play dirty.

          • David Jr.

            Luckily, the Lions signed him to a long term contract, so he’ll be retiring as a Lion.

          • Cubed56

            true, smart by the lions

          • David Jr.

            Not two words you often see in the same sentence, Lions and Smart.

          • David Jr.

            Well, luckily for me, he’s staying in Detroit, he recently signed a long term contract.

          • Xavier

            I’m a huge Andre Johnson fan myself. Dude is a class act. Calvin is a beast as well though

          • Cubed56

            another one of my favorite players. also helps he comes from my favorite college, THE U

          • Gesus Oliver

            I am very jealous mister!

          • Cubed56

            your not the only one. I got lucky, they were willed to me by my grandpa

  • Xavier

    This is another Heyman set-up, Truth will turn on Punk. Watch

  • Alex Gallardo

    I would like it if they turned Truth heel and gave him a preacher gimmick like the one in the HIAC commercial as others have said.

    • Xavier

      YES. I thought the preacher stuff yesterday from him was great. Slick 2.0

      • Mark3man

        I agree, it would be a nice move for Truth, however would it be too much like Bray Wyatt?

        • Xavier

          I don’t think so, there personalities are a lot different. Bray Wyatt is bordering on Duck Dynasty/back woods persona stuff. Truth would be more along the lines of a crooked minister comedic heel

          • Justin Mayo

            I always thought of Bray as what Willie Robertson would look like as a cult leader

          • Xavier

            LMAO

          • Justin Mayo

            btw, good sir, do I have you on FB? I think I have cubed, but not positive

          • Xavier

            Not sure, my real name is Andre Holly II.

          • Justin Mayo

            Added- cubed would be tylor (or similar spelling) yes?

          • Xavier

            Yeah

          • Justin Mayo

            sweet- now you can check my articles in my status’, especially this morning’s :-P yeah, cheap plug, what of it haha

          • Xavier

            Undertaker/Jeff Hardy was freaking epic. I marked out big time during that match, for a sec I thought Hardy was going to pull it off

          • Justin Mayo

            That match is the very definition of an Underdog Story

          • David Jr.

            One of the greatest matches ever on Raw.

          • Cubed56

            Tylor Torstenson

          • Justin Mayo

            thought so, but if i wasn’t sure of spelling on first, i wasn’t gonna touch last haha but ya, think i have all the important peeps on my FB except for Robbie. Robbie, change that now, that is your ONE job tonight!

          • Xavier

            I just requested you

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I don’t know. I think if Truth joined with Wyatt and started spouting Wyatt’s rhetoric, it could be really creepy!

          • Mark3man

            Thinking more along the line for casual fans, Remember a few weeks ago when it was mentioned that there were too many prominent beards for Vince’s liking.

          • Xavier

            Yeah I remember that

      • David Jr.

        As long as it’s not Reverend Devon 2.0

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I still say that WWE has to set up Bray vs. Truth down the line. Have Truth take the title off of Axel and lose it, and his soul, to Bray Wyatt!

  • Mark3man

    did Teddy long book that promo?

  • Gesus Oliver

    I was always a fan of CM Punks shirt with the red bolt really wanted it. Now I really want the pink bolt. Just something about it is awesome.

  • Nostaljack

    Can we get McIntyre a run and put Axel in 3MB already?

  • K!NG

    i love how ryback is always asking paul what to do

    • Justin Mayo

      What’re we gonna do tonight, Paul?

      Same thing we do every night, Ryback…Try to take over the world!

      • The Breaker

        Heyman: Ryback, are you thinking what I’m thinking?

        Ryback: Yes, Paul, but since a buffet is “All You Can Eat”, it should dessert.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        They’re Paulrus, Paulrus and the Ryback, Ryback, Ryback!

  • The Breaker

    The transition to that match was formed so awkwardly that it pretty much sold the fact that this is complete filler.

    • Xavier

      Truth is more then likely gonna turn on Punk

      • The Breaker

        I don’t see that happening. Truth is just there because of his “rivalry” with Axel.

        • Xavier

          You were right lol

  • Copeland

    Richard I thought you said drew we leaving 3mb?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They are trying it out, but it isn’t official yet. WWE even teased it a bit on their official Twitter yesterday.

      • Copeland

        Awesome thank you! If he keeps up the mean streak like he had against Matt hardy a couple years back then I could see big things for drew as a Paul heyman guy possibly or aligned with HHH.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Same here Copeland! While he wasn’t the best then, I have seen him improve by leaps and bounds since then. Plus, I could really get used to hearing Broken Dreams every night!

          • Copeland

            I miss broken dreams! I also believe his maturity has improved and he could help carry smack down instead of the insomniacs dream del rio lol

    • Justin Mayo

      I think it’s mostly for house shows at the moment, testing the waters a bit first before they pull the trigger.

  • David Jr.

    With the special referee for Orton vs. Bryan at Hell in a Cell, there is one Hall of Famer who has history with both, and that’s Shawn Michaels, he was part in training Bryan and well Orton and him have had their feuds, but also he’s Triple H’s hand picked guy.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We know that is where this will end up. I’m just curious who the other candidate is.

      • Mark3man

        dusty rhodes?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Dusty is the most likely, but they could throw us a curve.

      • David Jr.

        Lawler?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Definitely not. VKM likes the 3 man booth too much.

    • K!NG

      thought the same thing

  • K!NG

    i just want to see truth in the confederate uniform one more time

  • David Jr.

    I’d reather be managed by the Brain.

  • Nostaljack

    R-Truth got the win!

  • Danny Philippi

    That tag team match was just a blur to me. Sorry.

    • Nostaljack

      I thought it told a good story.

  • Mark3man

    Is that ref (Charles Robinson, i think) the one who was Rick Flairs mini me ref in wcw?

  • K!NG

    hopefully bob backlund is a canidate

    • K!NG

      im f’n right

  • Xavier

    I find this Bryan-Cody pairing interesting. I think it’s a little risky to pair Cody & Bryan so closely together right now considering all the momentum this Rhodes stuff is getting especially with how so many fans are turning on the Bryan/Orton angle.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They are the two hottest faces in WWE right now. WWE is hoping Cody being paired with Bryan can give the Bryan/Orton Feud a new spark.

    • Cubed56

      i think they are using the Rhodes/shield storyline to infuse some new momentum into db/orton

      • Xavier

        That appears to be the case. Not sure how I feel about that, unless we get a Bryan/Cody match

        • Cubed56

          later on down the road hopefully

  • Gesus Oliver

    I love me some Dusty the man still can get a crowd going. Do you think he is getting a bit to old to be in a storyline now? Is the risk of injury or health problems outweigh what he is doing?

    • Nostaljack

      Apparently he has heat…or something. Still, I think it’d be great to see him.

      • Gesus Oliver

        Where’d you read that?

        • Nostaljack

          Here on the site.

          • Gesus Oliver

            Ahh I see that. Who the hell cares. You get a guy like Dusty who can talk better than 95% of that roster you can’t tame him down. He will be our huckleberry till he dies.

          • Nostaljack

            Preach on, Gesus!!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF alert: Jets hanging in early in a must-win game for the Falcons.

    • Xavier

      I think Geno Smith will develop into a good QB in this league. The Jets just have to be patient with him and live thru the growing pains the 1st season

  • Nostaljack

    BACKLUND!!!

  • The Breaker

    It’s Backlund!

  • Xavier

    Those fans tonight really have no clue who Backlund is. That reaction was really quiet

  • K!NG

    i called it

  • The Breaker

    Why are they giving him a live mic after his HoF speech?!

    • Robbie

      What did he say?

      • Nostaljack

        Absolutely nothing…for a really long time.

      • The Breaker

        Unintelligible nonsense, followed by a threat to put anyone who goes out of line in the Crossface Chicken Wing.

  • Nostaljack

    This isn’t working at all.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Backlund is bat shit crazy!

  • Justin Mayo

    Um……Bob seems a bit….different?

  • Alex Gallardo

    Sorry, but I don’t want Backlund as the special guest ref.

  • K!NG

    can he just start staring at his hands now

  • Cubed56

    that was awful

  • Danny Philippi

    Backlund makes as much sense as Fox News commentator.

    • Xavier

      LOL Shots fired

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Fox News makes more sense than that mess! I’d listen to 24 hours of Rush Limbaugh over Backlund!

      • Gesus Oliver

        masochist!

  • savokes

    what just happened?

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

    Lawler: We’re witnessing history here tonight.
    well we witnessed something

  • Gesus Oliver

    Hogan on a wrecking ball made more sense than that.

    • Robbie

      Twerking made more sense

      • Gesus Oliver

        That would twerk out way better!

  • Nostaljack

    Great googily-moogily that was bad.

  • K!NG

    a feud between backlund vs ultimate warrior would have some good promo’s

  • The Breaker

    I like how the announcers just have to pretend that Backlund didn’t just act like an insane person on the stage.

  • Mark3man

    Who would you guys want as third choice, any HOF guy(or girl)

    Mike Tyson could be intersting

    • Nostaljack

      MAE YOUNG!

    • David Jr.

      Bob Uecker.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Isn’t he dead?

        • Robbie

          Nope

        • David Jr.

          He is the play-by-play announcer for Milwaukee Brewers

      • Cubed56

        Uecker, the greatest play by play man on radio. its a privilege i have living in WI listening to him on the radio, it doesn’t matter how crappy the brewers are, that guy always makes a baseball game interesting.

        • David Jr.

          Does he ever say, Just a bit outside?

          • Cubed56

            lol, yea every once in a while

    • Mark3man

      Bob Orton and fix the vote

  • K!NG

    poor kofi

  • Holden Patrick Harris

    is this how they are gonna throw shawn michaels into this feud?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Looks like it Holden! And welcome to the Watch Party!

      • Holden Patrick Harris

        thanks. ive been on this site awhile. figured might as well start posting =D

        • Alex Gallardo

          You’ll have fun here. This site is much better than the other common smark cesspools.

          • Holden Patrick Harris

            haha i enjoy reading all the comments. makes my night that much better. but seriously, if the third person is not shawn michaels than there is absolutely no point in this special ref.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Anybody, but Bob Backlund.

          • Holden Patrick Harris

            if they would not of specified hall of fame, i would of thrown john cena as a guess.

          • Alex Gallardo

            We don’t need him on TV that soon.

          • Holden Patrick Harris

            in order for more people to buy HIAC they could use him. other than that there is no need for him yet. thats the only reason i would of thrown cena into it..

  • Copeland

    Michael cole was like oh no not backlund lmao

  • The Breaker

    Kofi and Orton don’t need a storyline reason to have a match, so to me this isn’t total filler.

    • Xavier

      Lol was that a subliminal reference to Orton derailing Kofi’s push in 09

      • The Breaker

        ;)

    • Justin Mayo

      OOOOOO I see what you did there ;)

  • monty

    this has been a really boring show, that tag match was extremely boring

    come on man put together better segments

    • Nostaljack

      3MB was in it; of course it was boring.

      • monty

        i am talking about cm.punk/r-truth tag match

        curtis axel is boring man

        • Nostaljack

          Ah. I didn’t dislike it because of Truth and Punk’s work.

          • monty

            yeh but the other 2 sucked lol, but i agree punk and truth are good

  • monty

    stone cold should have been the referee, he has done it before many times

  • Scott Davies

    I hope The Iron Sheik is Number 3 lol

    • monty

      stone cold steve austin
      ric flair?

      • Scott Davies

        It will either be Edge or Mick Foley in all honesty

      • Holden Patrick Harris

        HBK…

        • Scott Davies

          Hulk Hogan?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            The Ghost of Andre the Giant!

          • Holden Patrick Harris

            i would enjoy that.

  • Danny Philippi

    Kofi Kingston is not Jamican me crazy in this match. Overall, however, he better than 2/3 of the locker room. Turn Kofi heel and he’ll explode.

  • monty

    curtis axel and ryback are so damn boring to watch, man i seen much bigger guys move better in ring, but curtis its like watching pain dry

  • Xavier

    What if McMahon returns and makes Big Show an option for the ref for HIAC

    • monty

      i thought that would happen, let’s see

      i like this big show, he should act crazy huge giant

    • The Breaker

      Nope, they said the candidates are all HoF’ers.

      • Xavier

        Oh okay. I’m going with Koko B. Ware then

        • The Breaker

          That’s what I said way down in the comments a while ago.

          • Xavier

            Lol really

    • monty

      maybe it was just me, but i thought show would knock out steph

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That can’t happen. WWE has a moratorium on men striking women on WWE TV.

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF alert: Jets up on the Falcons 17-7 in the second quarter.

    • monty

      i am a saints fan so go jets, falcons are so over rated

  • Mark3man

    I dont understand why they used Backlund….obviously he wont win, but they have Arn Anderson and Sargent Slaughter at every show, one of them could of been the filler guy

  • Xavier

    At least Kofi is getting some offense in on Orton

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I’m calling that Backlund will get less than 5% of the vote.

    • Ashley

      well he is trending on twitter

      • Gesus Oliver

        Thanks Cole!

        • Ashley

          Now if you pull out your smart phone, I will show you how to download the WWE app…

          • monty

            lol

          • Justin Mayo

            Wait, I just tuned in, can you show me again?

    • Xavier

      Agreed, fans today aren’t familiar with him at all

  • Xavier

    Solid match so far

  • monty

    i know orton gets a lot of heat, but IMO he is one of the better workers and has really improved over the last few months. he puts up P:PC type matches on raw regularly

  • MohammadHanif

    Is Kofi vs randy over? If it is who won?

  • Xavier

    Anyone heard anything about Wade Barrett getting a gimmick change and possibly appearing on RAW tonight?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope, but his absence on TV has been notable. Last time we saw him was before NOC.

    • The Breaker

      I heard he’ll be put in a gimmick like DickVan Dyke’s character from Mary Poppins.

  • The Breaker

    Nice spot with the powerslam. But Orton will win and that’ll be it. Kofi usually puts out a good showing but he’ll never be more than a midcarder, unfortunately.

    • monty

      its time for Kofi to get a push, i don’t understand why wwe can have these guys fight it out for WHC.

      ziggler
      kofi
      wade
      cody

      i am so tired of alberto

      • The Breaker

        Cody Rhodes is obviously getting a push and could be in the running. And Ziggler too, since he’s went over Sandow recently.

      • Xavier

        Kofi doesn’t get a push because he’s a bit reckless in the ring. That’s been well documented. Wade got less of a rection then Del Rio. And Ziggler buries himself with his mouth

  • Mark3man

    Is that Jamie Noble?

    • monty

      yes we have a noble sighting lol

      • Gesus Oliver

        Where?! I missed it?!

        • monty

          oh come on you missed it lol, he was there among the refs breaking up the fight

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yes. He works backstage for WWE

    • The Breaker

      I missed it. Have to go back!

  • Gesus Oliver

    A nice vicious attack from Daniel bryan. Anything can happen at HIAC. What a good way to sell that show!

  • Stephen Cash

    That’s not fair Randy just had match! Lol

    • monty

      fair?

  • Nostaljack

    My name is Fit Finley…and I love ta fight!

    • The Breaker

      The new WWE Universe will think that’s always been Sheamus’ thing.

      • Nostaljack

        Sadly, you’re right.

  • monty

    shane recently stepped down from his post as the CEO of his company, any chance we see him back in wwe soon

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Highly doubtful, as he is still the Chairman of the Board of YOU On Demand.

    • Mark3man

      it would be nice, i’m not one for great arm drags or perfect figure fours, when your in the arena its the crazy sh*t that makes you happy….it doesn’t get much crazier than Shane-O-Mac

  • Xavier

    It’s Del Rio, I bet Kendra is marking out at this very moment

    • Jesse Sherwood

      At least he is somewhat believable in hitting on Vickie!

      • The Breaker

        That’s the only thing he’s been taking seriously!

  • K!NG

    del rio is right

  • Gesus Oliver

    Wow, talk about that awkward moment when ADR is your only champ.

  • Justin Mayo

    ADR on my TV? New I picked a good time for a potty break

    • monty

      break your TV lol, he doesn’t deserve to be on your screen

      • Justin Mayo

        tempting, but not my tv, so I’ll go with nah. parents won’t be happy

  • K!NG

    creeeepy

  • Robbie

    Here’s HBK!

  • Nostaljack

    HBK!!!

  • K!NG

    well what do u know

  • monty

    HBK is the ref no need for contest

  • savokes

    DAMN RIGHT

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Listen to that pop!!!

  • monty

    HBK the ref now and will wrestle at WM30

    bank on it

  • Holden Patrick Harris

    that awkward moment when booker t wins…

  • savokes

    Love it!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Wife just looked at me like I was crazy for screaming the opening to his theme. Then BAM it came on! So excited!

    • savokes

      Dude, I did the same thing!

    • Ashley

      I hurt myself yelling so loud!

      • Gesus Oliver

        It got really weird when I knelt down and fire works went off.

  • Alex Gallardo

    HBK is probably going to be the special ref. It makes a lot of sense and it could be cool to see the buildup.

  • Xavier

    Looks like HBK will be ref

  • David Jr.

    Why should you vote for me? I’m Shawn Michaels that’s why.

  • Justin Mayo

    he might as well have just announced the winner of the vote. Stick a fork in the wwe, cuz the contest is done

  • Mark3man

    ADR saying that he should be the face of the company was needed months ago when all this story line started….That adds more importance to that title. When HHH held it, it was the premier title, now its just what the IC title once was.

  • Ashley

    YES YES YES

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Kendra said it in the Live Blog that HBK would be back tonight! And she says HA! TOLD YOU SO!

    • Robbie

      Everyone said it. So please return it with a stamp

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

        Robbie, you know what you can do with your wannabe heel persona.

        • Robbie

          Become the best in the world?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Shine it up real nice, turn that sumbitch sideways, and stick it straight up your candy ass!

          • Gesus Oliver

            Check in to the smack down hotel.

          • Robbie

            Phhh having to steal other people’s quotes. Your typical heel. That’s why I’M THE BEST IN THE WORLD

          • Gesus Oliver

            You’re.

          • Robbie

            Tutututututut wrong my sir

    • Gesus Oliver

      I owe her an apology…

  • K!NG

    He could still prlly go better then anyone on the roster

  • Xavier

    HB Shizzle

  • savokes

    HAHAHA, still a master on the mic

  • The Breaker

    We all knew it would be yet another slanted WWE poll.

  • monty

    DB looked up to HBK and HBK trained him. HHH is BF with HBK

    we are gonna see a story line developed for WM30 at HITC

    sting at WM30
    lesner at WM30
    taker
    hhh
    cena
    orton
    punk
    DB

    damn could be the best WM ever

  • Cubed56

    I called it last night during battleground, hbk will come back and he WILL SCREW DB at hiac. he trained DB, but HHH is his best friend and pretty much his brother, and we all know family always comes first. Mark it down, I called it here first. HBK SCREWS DB!

    • Xavier

      Are you a little bit more interested now?

      • Cubed56

        I have to say yes I sure am. this is really the only move they can do to get the audience to care almost as much as they did before

        • Xavier

          I agree, HBK is there to sale this PPV and to breath some life into this feud.

          • Cubed56

            Absolutely, it will only work if he screws DB though, see my comment above as to why I think so.

          • Xavier

            I saw, and agree

    • Ashley

      I agree, really the only reason to bring him back. Superkick to DB’s face!

      • Cubed56

        That’s how I see it going. I really hope im wrong, but it would make more sense if he does, it will help DB launch into another stratusphere

      • Xavier

        He even shaved the beard because it’s best for business lol

        • Cubed56

          coincidence, I think not.

      • Scott Davies

        I think Daniel Bryan will turn heel at HIAC. There would be no point for HBK turning Heel.

        • Cubed56

          why the hell would it make sense to turn DB heel?

          • Scott Davies

            HBK will be gone after Hell in a Cell. Not to say I would like Daniel Bryan to turn. I just see it happening

          • Cubed56

            I see where your coming from, but that would absolutely kill everything they’ve done with db

    • K!NG

      HBK will miss a SCM on orton and drill DB and orton will make the pin

  • Copeland

    Hbk and Bryan vs HHH and orton

    • monty

      HBK at WM30 could be awesome

      • Copeland

        One could dream.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    HB Shizzle chant!

    • monty

      trending world wide

      thank you cole

  • The Breaker

    HBK said he and Bryan don’t get along… interesting…

    • Copeland

      I believe he said he doesn’t get along with orton

  • Justin Mayo

    H.B. Shizzle?…still better than whatever Backlund came out with!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Minimum of 75% of the vote for HBK, I’m calling 86%!

  • Mark3man

    I’m voting for Backlund…

    • Gesus Oliver

      We found the only one who is voting for Backlund..and He’s a WnW reader!

  • The Breaker

    Everyone vote for Backlund!

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

    But I called for HBShizzle to be on RAW soon last night and I was argued with!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    HBK, still the best cheap plugger there has ever been!

  • Kanewty

    Is it just me or does backlands pic on there look like a cross between cena & Jon cryer mixed together

  • Xavier

    Bringing in Shawn will up PPV buys for Hell In A Cell.

  • The Breaker

    So WWE is pretty much banking on HBK to sell Hell in a Cell. Pretty good strategy if you ask me.

    • Xavier

      Lol, I just said the exact same thing. Great minds think alike

      • The Breaker

        Heh yeah I saw.

  • Justin Mayo

    l guys, I must disappear for a bit, including dishes and puppy duty. Feel free to mention me in a comment and say something, or ask me a question anyways, because when i’m done with life stuff, I’ll add more comments anyways! Until then, stay classy San Diego!

    • Xavier

      You from San Diego bro? I was born there. Got tones of family down there still.

      • Gesus Oliver

        It’s from Anchor man.

  • Xavier

    Anyone think we’ll get Big Show/Triple H at HIAC

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope, at SS! They have to have it on a big 4.

      • savokes

        I agree, I said earlier I smelled HHH/Show after Show maybe puts his hands on Steph or she smacks him one too many times

    • The Breaker

      I don’t know if Triple H will get into the ring for a B-level PPV.

  • Robbie

    “You don’t even know how to open the app!”

    Why don’t you show him countless times like you do with us?

    • Nostaljack

      LOL!

  • Mark3man

    I may be in a minority here but I would like the title to still not be decided at HIAC.
    Between now and then I’d want Damien Sandow to cash in and join the coperate evolution, then at Survivor series have a 5 on 5 match. Shield, Sandow and Orton v Cody, Goldust, Ziggler, Show and Bryan with every title on the line. GD and Show to take the tag titles, Cody for the world, ziggler for the US and Bryan to win the WWE. Bryan and Cody last men standing.

  • Stephen Cash

    Christian returns

  • Nostaljack

    I mouthed this just as she was saying it. LOL!!!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Ladies and Gentleman Please allow myself to introduce..my..self. I was really awaiting that Austin Powers reference.

  • The Breaker

    Del Rio usually looks a bit better when he’s in there with Ricardo.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And who wants to bet Ricardo failed another Wellness test and is being written off of TV?

  • K!NG

    cue rey mysterio

  • Robbie

    CENA???

  • savokes

    WHAAAAAAAAAT??????

    • Xavier

      Just a distraction

  • The Breaker

    CENA?!

  • monty

    cena lol

  • monty

    that was a joke

  • Jesse Sherwood

    RICARDO WON, AND CENA IS RETURNING? HOLY CRAP!

    • David Jr.

      I hope he’s not returning to early.

    • Cubed56

      He must have gotten a hold of Ray Lewis and got the number to the guy with deer antler spray

  • Gesus Oliver

    That has to be a swerve…

  • Ashley

    shut up! John just tweeted confirming it!

  • Xavier

    Wow, Ricardo took that table bump like a G

    • monty

      yeh that was ugly

  • Mark3man

    Hate him or love him…Cena is what the World title needs

    • monty

      i for one miss him and i can’t believe i am saying this

      • Xavier

        Wow

        • monty

          yeh wow

    • Cubed56

      disagree, its exactly what the whc doesn’t need.

      • monty

        that’s your opinion, look at the ratings

        • Cubed56

          not disputing that part of it, but the whc is now used as the ic title was years ago. its the stepping stone for guys who they feel can carry the wwe title imo. if cena holds it, you know he will be involved in that picture non stop, thus not allowing younger guys to prove themselves.

          • monty

            MITB cash in maybe?

          • Cubed56

            possibly, but do you really think sandow at this point could survive a feud with cena and come out looking strong in anyway.

      • Mark3man

        Cena holding it makes it a world title again. Its sad but at the moment he is the only person in WWE that can add any prestige

        • Cubed56

          a valid point, but see my comment below

          • Mark3man

            I did, and agree….was writing as yours came in lol.

            However a little run with it, then Sandow taking it off him would be a lot bigger than taking the title from Del Rio.

          • Cubed56

            very true

  • The Breaker

    I would say there’s no way Cena’s returning…. but this is Cena we’re talking about.

  • Gesus Oliver

    you need to be high to wear that pink RVD shirt.

  • savokes

    Cena to bring prestige back to WHC? But what about Sandow? He will def cash in then at HIAC, on Cena,

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Everyone, refresh to see it!

    • Gesus Oliver

      He will be out 4 months? More like 4 weeks! ugh I hope he isn’t rushing back and get reinjured.

  • K!NG

    wtf he really is superman

  • monty

    wwe is doing something interesting, or atleast doing something unexpected

  • The Breaker

    If Cena’s really going to work HIAC… this just shows Vince’s reaction to the ratings.

    Okay well his tweet says he’s coming back. Wow.

  • savokes

    I mean, that was a crazy announcement…but if it’s true, I think it woulda been so much better if they just brought him back and didn’t announce it…to truly see what kind of reactions he would get

  • monty

    ratings are low
    PPV needs to sell high so vince is going all out

    HBK as ref
    cena as WHC than MITB cash in

  • Xavier

    Damn I guess he is coming back. Dude heals faster then Wolverine

    • The Breaker

      He can’t be 100%.

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

        Obviously they feel they NEED him back, and that’s how Cena is!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      From Kendra:
      I love that!

  • K!NG

    last time he came back from injury like this he won the WHC at Survivor series from jericho

  • noelz

    Is…is this serious

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Stephen, I posted Cena’s tweet confirming below!

  • Xavier

    I’m probably one of the very few Cena supporters on here but even I think it may be to soon to bring him back. Was hoping for a more epic return

    • monty

      it maybe too soon, but i am also one of the few supporters of cane. i don’t like his stale gimmick but he doesn’t deserve all the hate he gets

    • Mark3man

      I like Cena, just find his stuff too 80′s Hulk Hogan…

    • The Breaker

      Using him as a surprise entrant at the Rumble would’ve been a huge pop, but we’ve seen that before. NO ONE saw this coming. Just putting his name out there sells PPVs. I do agree that it’s way too soon though.

    • Steve pritchard

      Yeah i was thinking the same thing. I actually like cena and dont want him on the shelf even longer. Dude needs to get healthy so he can end the streak at mania.

  • savokes

    Cena wins and Sandow cashes in and beats Cena to get the huge rub

  • Jesse Sherwood

    John Cena takes time off for surgery and should be out 6 months: 2 Months later, he’s 100% and ready to return!

    • monty

      look at the ratings man

      austin broke his neck yet stayed on tv because of ratings

    • Mark3man

      I was fully expecting a re run of the 2007(I think) royal rumble with him returning then

    • Cubed56

      like I said, deer antler spray man, ask Ray Lewis, that stuff does wonders

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Doesn’t that stuff have HGH and other banned substances in it?

        • Cubed56

          not hgh, banned stuff yes, but its not on the list of banned substances in any professional sports

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I thought Baseball had banned it.

          • Cubed56

            not yet that im aware of, but they may have

        • Cubed56

          besides if hes smart and did his cycle of it right, it wont show up in a test. obviously im just joking, I am not a cena supporter, but nobdy works harder then him, that’s for sure.

    • Xavier

      That dude is the most dedicated guy I’ve seen in all my years of watching wrestling. He doesn’t milk it at all. If Cena haters wonder why he’s remained at the top since 05, well this is a prime example of why.

      • Cubed56

        you know im not a cena guy, but you are absolutely right, you’ve got to give the man his due, hes wwe through and through

        • Xavier

          If I was him I’d be over in Hawaii on a beach with Nikki Bella getting my freak on with about 1000 missed calls from Vince lol

          • Cubed56

            no kidding right

      • David Jr.

        I’m not a Cena hater, and I’ve been saying the same thing.

  • mezzmer

    So it will be cena v dei rio
    Orton vs bryan with hbk
    Rhodes vs the shield
    truth vs axel im calling it right now

  • savokes

    It doesn’t have to go last because with HBK as spec ref with DB and Orton…there’s enough star power to still top what would happen with the WHC, esp with an HBK screw over like some have speculated

  • monty

    look we can hate on cena all we want, atleast alberto won’t be the champ anymore

    • The Breaker

      True. Cena as WHC can only be a good thing.

  • K!NG

    should be a good match between del rio and cena.

  • Xavier

    With Cena & HBK back HIAC will do a huge buyrate

  • Nostaljack

    Zack Jobber!

  • Robbie

    Mrs Newman looks good tonight

    • Gesus Oliver

      How is your mom doing tonight?

      • Robbie

        Her name isn’t Newman. Awkward…

        • Gesus Oliver

          It was last night.

          • Nostaljack

            Children!

          • Robbie

            Tell him Ed! He’s picking on me

    • Robbie

      Whoever disliked, you’re clearly jealous.

      • Gesus Oliver

        IT WAS ME ROBBIE!

        • Robbie

          You jelly

  • Nostaljack

    Da Daaa…

  • The Breaker

    Fourth week in a row for Zack Ryder! Is this a good sign for all the Broskis?

    • Gesus Oliver

      They should repackage him as the brooklyn broski.

  • K!NG

    can they just show summer rae instead of this match?

  • savokes

    One more huge swerve on this episode of RAW (if there is one) could push us over 1000 comments….whadda think Jesse?

    • Ashley

      we got just under an hour to do it!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Quite easily! I hope it happens!

  • mezzmer

    Zack just look like a jobber

  • David

    Not even Cena can bump up WWE RAW rating against Monday Night Football. It doesnt make sense to rush him back for mid level PPV. I hope he is truly healthy and not rushing to recover because WWE wants their golden boy back. Maybe this is sign that the WHC title will finally be dropped at some point this year

  • David Jr.

    With the announcement of the return of John Cena at Hell in a Cell, 1000 comments, is a possibility tonight.

    • Xavier

      Easily

      • Jesse Sherwood

        We are already close to the record, and still have 50 minutes to go!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Come on Ryder! Just get one win on TV this year!

  • savokes

    Lawler is such a dirty old man hahah

  • Mark3man

    Zack Ryder last week dominated the heavy weight champ, this week he gets destroyed by Fandango…..This is why Cena is a good thing

  • Danny Philippi

    Comment #800. We’re on the pace.

  • mezzmer

    Lawler need to be a heel again

  • Nostaljack

    I should not be thinking Barry Horowitz when I see Zack Ryder.

  • The Breaker

    I really like the idea of Cena as WHC.

    • Gesus Oliver

      It needs to be restored. For how many weeks now has there been no WWE champ and no one cares about the WHC title?

      • David

        Not even Cena can save the WHC. The title is a dud and needs to be dropped

        • Gesus Oliver

          Disagree. I wrote an article about changing the design of the title and giving it a push. The title looks so bland now especially compared to the new glitzy WWE title. New look and renewed push.

          • David

            There are too many titles and with brand extension over there is no point for the WHC to be around anymore. I wouldnt mind Bryan as WWE champ v Cena as WHC to become undisputed champ at Royal Rumble or WM 30

  • mezzmer

    Do that mean cena will be on smackdown again?

    • Gesus Oliver

      Don’t be ridiculous.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’d have to be! Smackdown could use the ratings bump!

      • mezzmer

        How long how it been since cena been on smackdown?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Since shortly before WM.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Shades of Cyber sunday here!

  • Copeland

    The crowd is DEAD for fandango and Ryder

    • Xavier

      After getting a HBK & Cena announcement anything following that would be a afterthought

  • Anand Vijayakumar

    Cena is coming back??

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye!

      • Anand Vijayakumar

        4-6 months is now 4 more weeks? How can the man be fully healed by Oct 27th???

        • Jesse Sherwood

          He seems to have excellent genetics for his healing factor. Remember, he was supposed to be out 18 months for his neck injury and returned in 6.

          • Xavier

            He was also suppose to be out from anywhere from 9-12 months and came back in 3 at the Rumble. Dude is a freak of nature

          • Gesus Oliver

            He is wolverine level.

          • David

            Cena must have taken a lot of Steroids to recover that fast

          • Anand Vijayakumar

            Am glad he will be back to spice up things in the stale WHC title picture. However, just hope he is a 100% and WWE isnt trying to pull the trigger too soon with an injured Cena…

            The man is a freak and can work a match with an injury (summerslam vs bryan with a swollen elbow) but needs to stay away and heal 100% before coming back.

  • The Breaker

    Over 90% HBK!

    • The Breaker

      Not even close. Oh well.

  • David Jr.

    Bob Backlund 32%?

  • Mark3man

    7% poor boooookah

  • savokes

    Wow Backlund got more than Booker T, haha

  • Xavier

    I’m calling BS. NO way Backlund got 32 percent of the vote lol

    • The Breaker

      That promo got him a lot of attention!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Considering social media, it could be a real possibility. Fans wanting to screw with WWE’s plans and whatnot.

  • Stephen Cash

    Shawn wasn’t even surprised. Lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WHA?! Backlund got 32% of the vote? Bizzaro World!

    • Kanewty

      And they aren’t even in Canada, wwe’s bizarro world lol

  • Nostaljack

    Booker T got shoe-miliated!

  • Ashley

    HBK does have a baby beard—and 32% for Backlund?!! WTH

  • K!NG

    lol at hbk for acting like backlund put him in the crossface chicken wing

  • Stephen Cash

    I voted for backlund just to see what would happen if he won.

    • mezzmer

      I did too

      • Nostaljack

        Make it 3.

        • Mark3man

          four

  • Cubed56

    the only thing I want to see out of cena as WHC, is eventually unify the wwe and whc in a match between DB and Cena, that to me would be epic.

    • Xavier

      Interesting

      • Cubed56

        why not right, the whc has lost all luster, cena fueding with up and comers for the secondary title wouldn’t do anything for cena, and to be honest can you really see anyone going over cena for it other than sandow on a cash in? probably not, why not unify the title with the two most popular guys on the roster

        • Xavier

          That makes a lot of sense. And if Bryan goes over Cena clean again that really opens up the door for………………….

          • Cubed56

            don’t leave me hanging, go on, for what?

          • Xavier

            WAIT FOR IT…………………………………..A heel turn

          • Cubed56

            lol, I knew you were going there, just wanted to see you say it.

          • Xavier

            Lol, but that does make a lot of sense. And there is one (probably in the history of wresting) that would be more justified in turning on the fans. Probably won’t happen but a guy can dream lol.

          • Cubed56

            like ive said it would change wwe forever, and would for sure spike ratings. make a wish is the driving force holding that up, but ive also said, there is nothing wrong with that, because what cena does for that foundation is truly incredible.

          • Xavier

            Agreed. Cena is heavily involved with the “fight against breast cancer” as well. and represents the WWE well in media appearance Bryan doesn’t have that kind of time in yet to really replace Cena to justify Vince green lighting that turn. Plus you really would have to change the entire landscape of the WWE for that type of heel turn

          • Cubed56

            on top of that with only one wwe title, you now instantly restore prestige to the ic and us titles.

          • Mark3man

            where would that leave sandow, and the MITB ppv?…WWE screwed the title with the billing of the MITB by having one briefcase deemed the all star ladder match….they need a mixture in both.

          • Xavier

            Good point. I just got caught up in fantasy booking lol

          • Cubed56

            sandow could cash in at hiac and cena win it back at survivor series or the rumble thus leading to the unification title bout against bryan down the road

    • Steve pritchard

      As much as i would like to see that . I just dont think it will happen. It didnt work in 2002 when they tried it . Plus having the whc is a good way to push midcard talent. They should just keep it like it is and add bigger names to storylines involving it. With cena facing del rio it seems like they are doing just that. Even though it sounds good its very unlikely they unify those belts.

  • Danny Philippi

    I guess WWE has put Battleground behind them like it was a blowout loss. WWE keeps mowing along.

  • Mark3man

    Im normally at work tuesday mornings so don’t get to stay up till 4am and chat on here as much as I’d like or used to….but i’m so glad I don’t have to read 850+ comments in the morning.

  • Nostaljack

    Ryback is getting a DVD already?

    • Anand Vijayakumar

      Please No… And this guy says he deserves to beat Takers streak at Wrestlemania. That is like hornswoggle saying – I deserve to be WWE champ…

      What has he accomplished till date to want a DVD? compile all his squash matches and PPV losses??

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nostaljack is joking around. Goldberg is getting a DVD.

        • Anand Vijayakumar

          For a moment I thought Ryback is getting a DVD.. What a relief :)

  • Xavier

    I’ll use Goldberg’s DVD has a door stopper

  • Scooter

    Am I the only person who caught the jab at Hogan with the “wrecking ball” comment? Cole said something to the effect of “alot of people have been trying that lately”

    • Ashley

      I heard that. Wish I had never seen the video!!

      • Nostaljack

        I avoided it. Glad I did.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I can’t unsee it!

      • Scooter

        I haven’t and I think I’ll keep it that way! hahaha

        • Ashley

          Well I was unknowingly set up with a “you have to see this” and no farther explanation!

  • Nostaljack

    Again with this?

  • Xavier

    Another Cesaro “swing”.

  • mezzmer

    Omg again Im gettin tired of this match

  • The Breaker

    The card for HIAC makes NoC and Battleground look RAW holiday specials.

  • Gesus Oliver

    It’s sad more people are butt hurt over a Los Matadores who can work a good match over Santino and Khali. Khali whom can barely walk.

  • K!NG

    glad i didnt but battleground or go to the ppv it self last night

  • Noelz

    Im feeling like cena is only coming back for the sandow cash in…cena wins the match but his arm gets “reinjured” by del rio and the cross arm breaker making him weak enough for a sandow cash in then a reinjured cena goes awny again til rumble

    • Cubed56

      pretty legit point

      • Noelz

        Sandy pretty much goes from 0 to 100 in one night or at least has the best odds to do it…and it gives cena something to do when he gets back since he probs won’t be getting right into the wwe championship picture…at least I hope he isnt

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, the Backlund debacle is solved. Backlund trended #2 worldwide at one point, and there was a huge twitter push to vote for him.

    • David Jr.

      That was my guess.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    We The People chant!

  • Danny Philippi

    A “We The People” chant. I guess it’s because they are in coal country tonight.

  • Nostaljack

    Lovely. The Great Folly is in the ring.

  • mezzmer

    Why is khail still in wwe?

    • Gesus Oliver

      I blame corporate WWE. Stay tuned in the near future I am writing an article about this.

      • mezzmer

        I will be waiting on it

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He has a massive following in India.

  • K!NG

    can khali’s knees bend like that?

  • Danny Philippi

    Cesaro gets the pin! Fudge yeah!

  • Robbie

    Please get Horswoggle

  • Gesus Oliver

    Interesting fact, Midget throwing is illegal in Flordia.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I wish Cesaro tossed Horny into the rafters with that Swing!

  • Nostaljack

    Hornswoggle is selling beautifully.

    • savokes

      was it wrong of me to be laughing so hard at that hornswoggle swing and him getting up and falling again?

      • Nostaljack

        Not at all. It was high-larious.

  • Xavier

    I had a chance to meet Titus, really nice dude. I really hope he gets a chance once he goes solo

  • Danny Philippi

    I hope this puts Titus on his deserved singles run at a title.

    anyone catch cole call horny by his real name?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here comes Miz’s heel turn!

  • K!NG

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, Kendra and I know why We The People is catching on. Blame the Government!

  • mezzmer

    Wwe need to bring alex Riley back and be the us champion

    • Jesse Sherwood

      A-Ry has found his niche in commentary. He sounds like a 10x better version of Matt Striker.

      • Gesus Oliver

        It’s amazing. Him and Renee on NXT really have sold me on how great NXT is. It really breathed life into their careers. While Renee as on her way up, she just found her stride on NXT and is running with it.

  • K!NG

    i like the miz’s cleveland browns colored outfit

  • savokes

    ooohhhh

  • Nostaljack

    We’re here.

  • K!NG

    where here…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Looks like I was wrong, and Miz is the next Hero to fall!

  • Danny Philippi

    Miz Tv. Headed for the kitchen … wait the Wyatt family, kitchen can wait a while.

  • Nostaljack

    I absolutely love everything about the Wyatts

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Catching flies… In his mouth…

  • Xavier

    I guess Bray Wyatt/Miz works as a midcard feud. I’m okay with that.

  • Robbie

    Setting up Kane’s return?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He is advertised for next week’s Raw!

      • Robbie

        Kane will work with or against Miz!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Against, as Bray’s loyal zombie!

          • Gesus Oliver

            I would love to see Kane as a zombie follower. As long as they don’t go all Festus with him. Could be a great storyline. Maybe glimmers of embrace the hate? Let’s hope there is no Kane goat mask hybrid.

  • Mark3man

    How good is Bray Wyatt…

  • The Breaker

    “Thank goodness Bob Backlund wasn’t chosen right?” lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Amen! That loose cannon probably can’t count to 3 anymore!
      Seriously, I wonder if he isn’t in the early stages of dementia.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Bray is so much money. I agree with Richard. The money in Bray isn’t in the ring. Harper and the other dude can carry them in the ring. It’s fantastic. I love The Wyatts.

    • K!NG

      well his gimmick will keep him around long enough to improve himself in the ring.

      • Gesus Oliver

        Absolutely. The man has talent. I’m glad he found gimmick that works.

    • Mark3man

      I just hope they leave the character alone….they are starting to get pops, but they don’t really do anything to get heat, that to me is how they should leave it…I really don’t think every character has to be in a box

    Goldy’s music! I love it. The AE had some great themes.

    • Mark3man

      I’d of loved it if at sometime during this story if Triple H said to Golddust…’You’ve always screwed up, don’t you remember when you lost MY European title’

  • Nostaljack

    The wig is back!

  • Gesus Oliver

    I question why they would have The Wyatts and the shield so close together since Vince absolutely hates it, $5 says this was a last minute script again.

  • Gesus Oliver

    “You’re only dust and mirrors” would be good!

    • K!NG

      Sounds like the 80′s

      • Gesus Oliver

        It’s not flairs theme.

  • savokes

    Think we see Show back in this segment? Obviously with DB attack earlier, Orton will prob come out at one point…

    • David Jr.

      I would love if the Shoe came back.

      • savokes

        Dang for typing too fast!

  • Xavier

    Cody needs new theme music especially if he’s going to be moving up the card. His entrance doesn’t grab your attention like Bryan, Punk or Cena’s do.

    • Cubed56

      agreed, he needs something more edgy

  • The Breaker

    With Triple H at ringside, and Orton wanting revenge, no way this match ends cleanly. Will it just be a brawl?

  • Danny Philippi

    Triple H with minimal reaction. Not good.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “BOW DOWN TO THE KING!”

  • David Jr.

    Dustin Rhodes looks like a combination Goldust and Black Reign with all that black face paint.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And that isn’t a bad thing. Him changing up the paint helps hide some of his imperfections since losing all of the weight.

    • Xavier

      Goldust looks exactly like Darth Maul would if he won the lotto

      • David Jr.

        I was just gonna say that.

        • Xavier

          Lol

  • Danny Philippi

    Less than 50 till 1K. Don’t be like the Falcons and finish it.

    • Gesus Oliver

      FINISH. IT!

      • Nostaljack

        Hey, no Rybread allowed here!…;)

          FEED ME MORE… COMMENTS!

      • The Breaker

        *smacks head* STUPID!!

  • Nostaljack

    I love the Shield’s facial reactions.

  • The Breaker

    Hey guys I know this match will be really good and you’ll all want to watch it, but COMMENT!

    • Xavier

      Comment

  • mezzmer

    I bet the shield win or it will be dq

  • douglaslcrouch@gmail.com

    goldust is in awesome shape

    • Nostaljack

      He really is. He was much larger as Black Reign. The gloves are a tragedy though.

      • Gesus Oliver

        We don’t talk about Black Reign here. He has been vocal about using DDP yoga and It’s really working.

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

    Less than 40 to go!

  • Gesus Oliver

    I wonder if this new serious Goldust gimmick is due to his age and expertise in the ring. Could it have worked before? Regardless It’s nice seeing him breathe new life into his character and career.

  • Danny Philippi

    This match could have 4 future world champs: bryan, cody, dean, and roman.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      5 with Rollins, and one man who should have held a world title, if not for his demons.

      • Mark3man

        I still think GD did enough to be in the HOF in the future

  • mike

    Lets go Rhodes!

  • Mark3man

    Ambrose vs Wyatt for the WWE title to headline WM 40? The future looks good

  • Nostaljack

    No to Ambrose’s earring!

  • Xavier

    We should give Jesse the honor of being the 1000th comment

    • savokes

      2nd

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I appreciate the thought, but whoever gets it deserves it. This isn’t just about me, it is about the community.

      • Nostaljack

        No, it’s about Robbie.

      • Xavier

        The ultimate team player

        • Jesse Sherwood

          This community is the reason I started writing and came out of my shell. I’d do anything for you guys!

          • Gesus Oliver

            Get on all four bark like a dog and join the Kiss my bum club.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            With pleasure… *Low Blows Gesus*

  • Scooter

    Damn Dustin Rhodes looks phenomenal in the ring!!!! Its shades of ’95!!!

  • douglaslcrouch@gmail.com

    did they just give ambrose the us title just to make the shield look shinny?

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

    What are the chances for golddust v cody at WM40?

    • Nostaljack

      He can clearly still go – perhaps better than he ever could, really.

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF alert: Jets on up 27-14 with 12 minutes left in the game.

    • Gesus Oliver

      I am so happy I went with my gut and not the FF projection people and played Kerley. He single handedly is giving me my victory! 5-0! WOOO!

  • mike

    Definitely the best stuff the wwe has had in a while…..

  • savokes

    This bickering between JBL and Cole is getting really really old…sometimes it totally takes away from the match

    • Nostaljack

      A-M-E-N.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        We don’t need heel pontifications on every aspect of the show! JBL needs some positivity!

        • David Jr.

          Jim Ross said JBL needs to be more heel.

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

    Almost there

  • Gesus Oliver

    I think we should make Robbie Sucks! the 1,000 th comment.

  • The Breaker

    Lots of storylines are converging in this match. They’re done a good job of separating Bryan and Orton away from The Authority so I hope they don’t backtrack.

  • mike

    Who’s actually looking forward to hell in a cell?

    • Mark3man

      me

    • Ashley

      I am!

    • Stephen Cash

      I am!!! I do hate that they have HIAC matches without blood

  • savokes

    The moonsault just looks so pretty when executed correctly!

  • Cubed56

    does hbk get involved already tonight?

  • mezzmer

    Im waiting for orton to come in and attack bryan

  • Mark3man

    robbie sucks

  • Robbie

    YES I AM #1000!!!! YOU’RE WELCOME

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope! 1006!

      • mezzmer

        Just wondering who is the 1000 comment

        • savokes

          I think it was Cubed56 actually

          • Cubed56

            if it was, that would be twice ive broken the comment record

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Cubed, the honor is yours!

          • Cubed56

            well I gotta thank everyone on here for making it possible

          • Xavier

            Why do you always have to bury everyone else on WNW lol.

          • Cubed56

            call me cena! zing! lol

          • Xavier

            Now you’ve crossed the line lol

          • Cubed56

            lol, well hiac is two weeks away, we can settle it there. wnw crown on the line.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It was!

          • Cubed56

            haha, ive done it again. Suck it Robbie!

      • Robbie

        NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I WAS WAITING TO BE #1000! WHO RUINED IT??? I WILL END THEIR WNW CAREER

        • Gesus Oliver

          ROBBIE SUCKS!

          • Robbie

            I DO NOT SUCK! I AM AWEEEEEEEEESOME

  • The Breaker

    We did it!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Wow! 1,000! just phenomenal. Solidifying WnW is the place to be on monday nights and for all your wrestling needs!

    • Ashley

      Richard has to be very pleased!

  • Danny Philippi

    Oh Hell Yeah! And that’s the bottom line ’cause WNW said so. *Glass Shatters.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Guys, thank you! From the bottom of my heart, thank you! I never expected these to take off as well as they have, and I never expected that we would hit 1000 only 7 short months after starting them. You guys are what make WNW so great!

    • Robbie

      My pleasure.

  • K!NG

    he missed

  • The Breaker

    Triple H: We’re not having a crappy ending like that one you all paid $55 for last night. Restart the match!

    • Xavier

      I only paid $5

      • savokes

        I paid nothing to watch it

      • Gesus Oliver

        $5 to much.

      • The Breaker

        I just read the updates on here.

    • Robbie

      I paid nothing.

  • K!NG

    someone is gonna come out

  • savokes

    YES!

  • Ashley

    Big show will come out and work with the shield

  • Nostaljack

    WEEEELLLLLL!

  • Xavier

    Big Show, Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  • Jesse Sherwood

    If Show was fired, then why is his music playing?

    • The Breaker

      It would be awkward if Show came out without his music, because everyone would be singing it!

    • Gesus Oliver

      That is TNA level.

    • Anand Vijayakumar

      Because show is a locker room leader and friends with the guy who plays all the stars entrance music :)

  • savokes

    HHH is gonna get KNOCKED OUT!

  • Ashley

    he is joining the authority!

  • Cubed56

    Just call me Mr. WNW. breaking records all the time

  • savokes

    CALLED IT!

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

    YEA!!!!!!

  • K!NG

    out like a light

  • Nostaljack

    Well, well, well….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Show KOed HHH! YES! YES! YES!

  • Xavier

    Big Show/Triple H is happening for sure at HIAC. Looks like WWE is going all out for Hell In A Cell

    • Ashley

      well bout darn time they did for a PPV!

      • Xavier

        All the Big Show crying was leading up to this moment the whole time. Creative got this one right

        • David

          WWE knew they screwed up with Battleground and are trying to make it up to fans. Hey WWE crazy thought how about next year not having 2 ppvs in the same month?

          • Xavier

            The ending of Battleground was fine IMHO. Keeps both Bryan & Orton looking strong headed into the cell.

          • Mark3man

            I agree. Its only like going to see the first batman at the cinema and then you get the joker cliff hanger at the end….sometimes a definite finish isn’t whats best for business

          • savokes

            Well they planned on having joker be in #3 I believe, but Heath Slater…I mean Ledger, had to go and get too deep into his role and get all messed up

        • Cubed56

          agreed, too bad they messed the other storyline so bad

  • Ashley

    well I was not expecting him to do that, thought they would swerve the other way. Glad he did it tho!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Bryan stands tall over the Boss! Sweet Victory!

  • Cubed56

    and now this is the main storyline, DB and Orton welcome officially to the backseat.

  • savokes

    What a fantastic way to end Raw, DB standing over HHH…YES YES YES

  • Xavier

    That Big Show KO on Triple H was actually a really good pay-off

  • Stephen Cash

    “Pow right in the kisser.”

  • Danny Philippi

    Two months in the making. Thank you and good night from Pittsburgh on this historic night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night Danny! Thanks for joining us!

  • The Breaker

    Big Show knocking out HHH was a pretty sweet moment!

  • Mark3man

    Did anybody else think of the end of Friday then when DB was stood over a knocked out HHH

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I expected this to go longer, but that punch was very cathartic!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The smile on Show’s face just warms my heart! I love the gentle giant!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Knucklehead!

  • Nostaljack

    Great RAW all around. It had it’s dead moments but being in here makes 3 hours totally bearable.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Raw can be a drain at 3 hours, but its moments like this that make it worth it!

    • The Breaker

      WWE usually gives us a good show after mediocre PPVs.

  • Cubed56

    anyone got the feeling that vince is the one behind big show, or possibly shane o mac

    • Ashley

      most likely Vince

      • Cubed56

        I think so too, but that would be insane to hear shanes music hit and see him come back again

        • Ashley

          I do miss Shane. He is very entertaining!

          • Cubed56

            not to mention hes always willing to step into the ring for a fight

    • savokes

      I agree, I think it’s Vince

  • Mark3man

    go for 1100.

    HHH v Big Show in a cell – yes or no?

    • Nostaljack

      Gotta be, right?

      • Ashley

        I say yes

      • Mark3man

        I’d say so, although this whole angle has survivor series written all over it.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It has to be! There should be 3 HIAC Matches this year: HHH/Show, Punk/Ryback, and Bryan/Orton.

      • Nostaljack

        What does this do to Bryan/Orton? it’s gonna shove it to the back burner.

        • Cubed56

          it already has been

          • savokes

            Call me crazy, but Creative might somehow blend all the story lines together with a Survivor Series match…all those opposed to The Authority vs The Authority

          • Cubed56

            that would be interesting

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’ve been calling for that since Summerslam, but they will have to leave the WWE Title out of it. I’m betting Cody, Goldust, Show, Ziggler, and Miz against The Shield, HHH, and Orton.

          • Cubed56

            wheres that leave db?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Facing someone new. I don’t know who off of the top of my head.

          • savokes

            hahah…Cena for the title? lol

          • Cubed56

            I like it, but is anybody ready for that spot right now?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            We don’t really have any heels right now that could hold it, but with the way things have been going tonight, I expect a surprise turn. Or Cena to lose at HIAC and demand his WWE Title Rematch he gets from his SummerSlam loss.

          • Cubed56

            that would work

          • savokes

            could Cena maybe just maaaaaaayyyyybe turn heel?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It will happen the day Cena can’t draw any cheers a la Hogan circa 1995.

          • savokes

            Maybe they do Bryan as WWE Champ and Cena as WHC and unify them?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That could work, but it narrows down the main event scene.

          • Cubed56

            I said that earlier, but that is a WM match right there

          • savokes

            My bad brotha, didn’t mean to take your thunder =)…you are MRRRRRRRRRRR 1000…..1000! tonight

          • Cubed56

            lol, no worries man, I share the honor with all of you who made it possible

          • Ashley

            a nice classic, important(!) SS match

          • savokes

            You are correct, I remember you saying that for a while now

        • savokes

          To a point….but they did have Bryan over Trip at the end

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Bryan and Orton don’t need to be at the forefront anymore. They have enough fire in their attacks on each other to keep fans interested, plus HBK can help spin the mic for it.

        • Ashley

          HBK is back, that will keep it more front burnerish. And with Cena returning, that is gonna take a lot of the limelight too

      • Mark3man

        not CEna/ADR then?

      • savokes

        Geez! But how would they do that without any color?

      • Gesus Oliver

        I don’t see the Punk Ryback feud being HIAC level just yet… The other two I would love to see it.

      • Ashley

        I am over ryback/punk, mainly cuz i am over ryback.

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

      That would be nice, as long as VKM’s head doesn’t get shoved up Show’s ass again!

  • Nostaljack

    Jesse: Couldn’t we do a “chat room” thing for this. Initially, i wasn’t sure but it’s kind of annoying to keep clicking on the “one new comment” blue block.

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

      Let me talk to Richard about it. I wouldn’t expect a fast change, but I will see what I can do. I agree with the issues.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Right now, I don’t think so. But I will be talking to Richard and Kendra about some sort of idea for it. CIL definitely isn’t the platform for it, after last night’s issues.

      • Nostaljack

        Yeah, that lagging was a lot. Hopefully, you can come up with something else. Likely, that software should never be used again. That was just bad.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Normally it isn’t that bad, but last night was very rough.

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

          CIL is a paid platform. I spoke with Richard about the problems in depth today, so he knows and we will be working on some things. This is the first time we’ve had those problems with CIL, and we’ve been using it for years.

          • Nostaljack

            Got it. I’ll just shut up and be patient then. I’m sure it gets awfully taxed with the kind of traffic that was upon us last night.

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

            No, don’t just shut up! These are the things that help the site improve. Honestly, I don’t know what was wrong with CIL last night, we didn’t even have those problems during WM, and there’s a crazy amount of people in there for that.

          • Mark3man

            WM was a crazy night in chat.

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

            It was, and CIL kept up with it. I think Ed’s right, something else had to be going on last night. Hopefully Richard can get some answers about why is had such issues last night.

          • Nostaljack

            It really felt like the server trying to play catch up and not getting away with it. Chat room software is *very* hard on a server – especially in high traffic. Couple it with whatever else might have been going on with the shared server and it can be a train wreck.

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

            Absolutely, but this is a company that should be used to this. Obviously was something. Will have to see what he finds out.

          • Nostaljack

            If it was on some other server, it might been taxed by something else going on at the same time.

  • Mark3man

    question is. If we go HHH/Big show, Orton/DB and Cena?ADR…..who main events

    • The Breaker

      Usually the WHC match kicks off the show, but could you see Cena having the first match?

      • savokes

        Prob not…however, could you see ADR having the last match?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Heck no! I expect it to co-main event.

        • The Breaker

          Looking at the other side of the coin, you’re probably right.

      • Mark3man

        that was my thinking. But I don’t see him and punk both in the middle of the card

        • The Breaker

          Punk/Ryback could be like the second match. Cena/Del Rio could co-main event, with Show/Triple H happening around the middle of the card.

    • Anand Vijayakumar

      Cena vs ADR – A returning Cena will get a huge pop i suppose…

    • savokes

      If HHH is in the mix, could you really see him letting anyone but himself headline??

  • Nostaljack

    1100!!!

  • Gesus Oliver

    NoC and BG were sort of duds for ppvs with 1 week of undercard build. With them slammed together I’m happy to see them build quite a few matches with 2 weeks to go to HIAC. Do you think this show might actually be worth $55?

    • Alex

      It already seems worth more then Battleground was.

  • Alex

    In one night I think they made me more likely to buy Hell In A Cell then the entire build for Battleground did for that PPV(which I didn’t end up ordering)

  • Alex

    I’m hoping Cena vs Del Rio is so they can strap Cena and make the WHC relevant again.

    • Anand Vijayakumar

      I seriously hope too…

      Cena vs Punk for the WHC title lights up smackdown… Any takers??

  • Mark3man

    Another thought would be having a triple threat. Show/Orton and DB with both Show and HBK joining the HHH…Show as the new champ?

  • BlackMotor687

    Triple H got KTFO’d

    Knock Tha F**k Out!

  • Ashley

    Well goodnight everyone!!

    • Nostaljack

      Night, Ashley!

    • savokes

      night

    • Cubed56

      peace

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night Ashley! Thanks for joining us!

  • The Breaker

    If Cena wins the World Heavyweight Title and Bryan wins the WWE Title, could it spark jealousy in Bryan (because Cena overshadows him) and lead to a unification match? With the Bellas stuck in the middle?

    • Anand Vijayakumar

      That would be a great storyline heading into WM. WM Main event – DB Vs Cena for title unification…

      • Nostaljack

        Unification wouldn’t be a good idea. Too many people deserve to work at the top of the card. Taking away opportunities to do that is bad.

        • Cubed56

          does the whc really feel like the top of the card to you though? it opens damn near every ppv

          • Nostaljack

            It could if they’d book it properly.

          • Cubed56

            enter cena right

        • savokes

          Hey if the gov’t can do it…so can WWE! hah

        • Alex

          True but then that could make the mid card titles more valuable. I do see your point but I feel there could be ways to benefit from just having one world title.

          • Mark3man

            I’d rather they scrap the US title and make the IC more relevant and keep both Worlds. Despite having no brand separation anymore it would be nice if the World title was smackdowns, with the champ at that time in the main event smackdown angles

          • Alex

            That’s not a bad idea but I like the idea of their being one world champion. I’d also like the idea of scraping the US Title and make the IC title more relevant. With both the US & WHC they could then bring the cruiserweight title back so there’d be 5 titles are distinct and have their own separate reason for being titles. I mean I doubt this scenario would happen but I think it’d work well.

        • The Breaker

          Good point, but I think unifying the titles would only increase competition. More people fighting for one spot. Matches would carry more meaning.

          • savokes

            Wouldn’t it also have a trickle down effect and give the secondary titles and tag titles more prestige with “bigger” names challenging for them as well?

          • The Breaker

            It would. When it comes to pushing a name to the next level, the World Heavyweight Title is a huge barrier. It’s lost a ton of prestige and because of that, it pushes down everything else beneath it.

            This isn’t like real sports. You can only have so many people vie for the big title and do a storyline for it. If they try and have so many upper cards vie for it then we might as well have every championship be a Fatal 4way then. Honestly they need the cruiserweight title back for some of these wrestlers.

            Not every storyline or feud is directly tied to a championship. And by eliminating the World Title, the midcard belts would be elevated, raising the quality of competition for the IC & US titles. There would be a clear distinction between the two groups, while each has a much better chance of not getting lost in the shuffle.

          I agree but if the WHC is just as good as the IC or the US title, instead of tarnishing the legacy of the big gold belt, it is better to unify the titles :)

          If WWE can properly legitimize the WHC title run of an upper mid-card guy (like Ziggler) and transform him into a main-event guy that would be great…

    1150 comments with 90% of them related to wrestling is pretty awesome, I cant imagine how many it will be up to in 6 weeks the next time I have a Tuesday off and i can stay up and watch live. I won’t have time to watch with all the reading i’ll have to do

    After 2 months of dealing with HHH & Steph dominate the mic w/ overtalking almost every segment, the Heels dominating practically every week, seeing Big Show cry, DB get screwed @ three straight PPVs, see guys like Ziggler, Kofi, Miz getting buried, ADR’s boring crowd reactions, Ryback… ’nuff said…

    That ending to tonight’s RAW was worth it. Cena coming back… HBK coming back… HHH finally gets knocked out… The Rhodes getting the shine they deserve… DB finally getting ruthless with his all-out assault on Orton…

    The ending definitely has me pumped for what’s in store @ Hell in the Cell. They definitely need to make up for 3-hour Smackdown episode they called WWE Battleground.
