In Ring Segment

Edge comes out onto the stage to a HUGE pop at home! No opening pyro, it’s all for Edge! Edge loves how Justin announces the Rater R Superstar! Edge points to Justin with a smile.

Edge – Man, every time I come out here, you remind me why this is home. It has been far too long since I’ve been able to say this, but welcome to The Cutting Edge. I’m here because I was requested by the COO (heat) of the WWE Triple H, to come out because it would be good for business. Thought it would be good to come out and have a reunion, but not with my best friend Christian. You guys wouldn’t want to see Edge and Christian. But with my partner in Rater RKO, Orton. I’ve known Randy a long time and he has nothing interesting to say. Like watching paint dry. I have no problem with him cashing in, I wrote the blueprint on cashing in MITB! My problem with Randy is he’s a hand picked puppet. Trip’s lacky. He needs The Shield to fight his battles. So Orton isn’t going to be the guest on The Cutting Edge.

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Edge – Another guest who’s going to be good for business. If you agree, say “YES!”

“YES!”

Edge – That guest is Daniel Bryan!

Bryan’s music and he comes out to HUGE “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” They shake hands. Video of Trip making Big Show knock out Bryan last week on RAW. “Daniel Bryan!” chants. Bryan is all smiles, looks about to split!

Edge – Daniel, you’ve been through a lot, I appreciate you coming out here.

Bryan – I have been through a lot, but it helps when so many people chant your name.

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Bryan – Yeah, last week Trip said if I didn’t give up my Title shot, I was going to get hurt, and I have been. Like last week when Orton attacked me from behind. They don’t understand the satisfaction in the struggle. No matter how many times I’m attacked, and no matter how many times Trip tries to hold me down, I will beat Orton! I will regain the Title. I will be the WWE Champion! “YES!”

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Edge – That’s why I like you, and they love you. You look at an obstacle as an inspiration. You wrestled in armories and barns, like I did. I see me in you. We didn’t do something else, then come here. This is what we always wanted. What we wanted to do since we were kids! I see you and the people have chosen you as their guy. I don’t know if you can beat Orton, but you deserve the chance. Here’s the thing, can you beat Orton?

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Bryan – “YES!”

Edge – Do you think you can beat Orton?

Bryan – “YES!”

Edge – Do you think you can shove it in the man’s face and become WWE Champion?

Bryan – “YES!”

Edge – Can you show that you’re the face of the WWE?

Orton’s music hits. Orton comes out to the stage.

Orton – What a shame it is Edge, that when you decide to come back, the only place that gives a crap is Canada. What a shame Edge it is indeed that your body failed you at such a young age.

“Randy sucks!”

Edge – It’s a shame that you’re supposed to be The face of the WWE, but you act like a completely different body part. It’s a shame that the Ortons have these physical problems – your daddy ran around with that cast for years. I may have problems with my spine, but at least I have one. Randy, you’ve become Trip’s puppet. He has a great mind for the business, but when picking talent, he flat out sucks. This is the guy who doesn’t think Bryan…

Trip’s music cuts Edge off. Out comes Trip in his power suit, yellow striped tie this week.

Trip – I thought I’d give you the opportunity to say this to my face.

Edge – The good thing is that I’m not an employee here, I don’t have to bow down to you. I’ll tell you what I think about you, you don’t know a thing about picking talent. You didn’t think I could make it. (heat) You didn’t think Jericho could make it. (more heat) You were running around yelling that this Vanilla Ice wannabe Cena, that he couldn’t make it. Now, you say Bryan can’t make it. I know your nose is huge, but sometimes you have to look past it.

Trip – It’s great to see you, because it’s best for business. I was able to secure a large sum to promote Haven, airs on SyFy after Smackdown. Now that the promotional consideration is over, please allow me to retort. You question my ability to judge talent. I have gotten some wrong, I’ve gotten a lot right. I’ll give you that Jericho proved me wrong. I certainly was wrong about Cena. Bryan, time will tell. There’s one guy I was right about. I was right when I said he’d be a failure, that’s you Edge. We can pretend all we want since we’re in Canada, that you’re a legend in this business, but the little experiment that was the Rated R Superstars was an abject failure. I hate to break it to you, but you never drew a dime. When I say those things, all a person has to do it prove me wrong. Jericho and Cena did, now Bryan can prove me wrong, tonight. Bryan will face Ambrose tonight. Since Ambrose will have The Shield in his corner, Bryan will have someone in his corner. Don’t get excited, Edge’s ability to fight like a man has long passed. (heat) I’m going to give Bryan Big Show. You know, here’s the thing. It would be so much easier if people would learn to get along with me. I’m not a bad guy. Contrary to popular belief, I’m not a dictator, okay?

“Asshole!” chants

Edge – Hunter, I didn’t have to marry into success, I earned this HOF ring. Here’s the thing, you’re not a dictator Hunter, you’re just a dick!

Trip – It’s easy to cross the line when you have a withered up stack of dimes for a neck, with multiple surgeries when you know no one can come down and touch you, but the thing is, if I can’t hurt you, maybe I could hurt the ones you love.

Christian is dragged out by The Shield and tossed down on the ramp. His shirt is all ripped up. Edge rushes to him and yells for ‘some damn help!’

“One more match!” chants from the hometown fans.

Trip – Doctors won’t clear you because your stack of dimes neck won’t be cleared. You’d better take that base out of your voice, who do you think you are to walk into this building on my show! You run your mouth in my town. Toronto is my town today. You run your mouth? Get out! Get out of our town, our building, my show. I can have you escorted out (The Shield).

Booker T – We’ve known each other a long time, and I respect you. Even though we haven’t always seen eye to eye, I was there when you first started. Cody got fired for speaking his mind. People are all over you for being a sellout.
Big Show – I’m not a sellout.
Booker T – It’s easy for them to say that when they’re not walking in your shoes. You are a professional. If it was me, I’d have did the same thing. Tonight, when you’re in Bryan’s corner, the people will want you to be a hero, but you need to think about one thing! Think about your daughter. Think about your family if you were gone. Tonight you will experience feelings. You might think it’s rage, but it’s pride. Don’t let your pride make a mistake you can’t take back.
“Boring!” chants from a few fans.

Booker T – Be a professional out there man.

Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, I am not an advocate for socialized medicine. I don’t believe in the Canadaian healthcare system. When I travel to Canada, I bring along my personal physician, Micheal Kurshenbaum from New York City. Let’s cut to the point, Doctor had confirmed my fear that I tore my meniscus or ACL. A proper MRI in the USA will confirm this. I’m withdrawing competition this Sunday. Believe me, if you’ve never believed me before, no one is as upset as Heyman. I looked forward to teaming with Axel and putting out of my misery my prodigal son, CM Punk! But I’m an injured man as the doctor will attest to. I will leave you now, return to New York, receive treatment, and as Edge once said, I will return, when I can. Thank you, and goodnight.

Maddox – Paul, as the GM of RAW, I’d like to remind you that we have a fully licensed medical staff, and all are able to give you a full evaluation of your injury. If you’re truly injured, the only way to be officially removed from a match is to be evaluated by our WWE doctor. Can we get a chair in the ring? Let’s get a chair.

Doctor – He doesn’t have an effusion. If this happened only 30 minutes ago, he doesn’t have an edema of ligament laxity.
Heyman (to the dcotor) – Is this personal? (to Maddox) You don’t want to make an enemy of me. I can’t even stand on my two legs and you’re putting me in competition?

    Good Evening Everyone. I hope the WWE delivers another solid Raw tonight. I hope everyone enjoys it

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Welcome to this week’s Raw Watch Party! I am your co-host Jesse Sherwood, and we have an excellent show lined up for you, with this being the final Raw before Night of Champions! Let’s Break it Down!

    1. Tonight will be a special one, for sure, as the WWE Universe will welcome back the Rated R Superstar, Edge, for one Raw only! How will he shake things up? And how does he feel about HHH’s regime?

    2. Speaking of The Game, he is going to allow Dustin “Goldust” Rhodes the chance to fight Randy Orton to get his brother Cody reinstated to the WWE! Will the Gold One have his way with the pretty boy Orton, or will the Viper shatter the Rhodes family’s dreams?

    3. Bray Wyatt’s cryptic clues have been slowly revealing the layers of his depravity. But we are still left with one question: Where’s Kane? Will we find out tonight?

    4. Punk has been trying for weeks to get his hands on Paul Heyman, to no avail. With their looming match at Night of Champions only 6 nights away, will Punk succeed? Or will the Tactical Walrus show his newest trick?

    5. AJ Lee has rallied together a group of Diva-Busters to back her in her crusade against the Total Divas stars! What mayhem will they cause?

    6. Daniel Bryan needs to make a statement tonight after weeks of the Corporation defeating him at every turn! What will he do to shift the momentum into his favor before NOC?

    All of this and more will happen tonight! What are you looking forward to?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

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

        Thank you for staying away from Terri. I never understood her place in the company. Heck, I’m a woman and I didn’t understand her boobs!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          The cigar smoking with Goldie got me. That was nasty!

        • Gesus Oliver

          It was a girl on tv. Heck it’s Vince, anything with boobs he wanted in that company.

  • The Breaker

    I’ve got high expectations for tonight. WWE needs to sell us that Daniel Bryan has a shot of winning at NoC, because right now it’s hard to get excited for the match when it looks inevitable that he’ll be on the receiving end of a beatdown if he even gets close to beating Orton.

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

      Agree! If he doesn’t have a chance, then why buy Noc?

      • The Breaker

        Too see Punk break Heyman’s face, of course!

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

          Well, yes, of course, but no reason for Bryan if he doesn’t even appear to have a chance.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That is a question more for Predicts, now isn’t it? I think that if Bryan gets beat down here and at least gets back up, that’s enough. Beat him down and he gets up, shakily, and Orton looks scared that Bryan is taking the punishment and still coming after him.

        • The Breaker

          I’d rather see Bryan get Orton in the YES Lock.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Same here, but it still may be early for it. Bryan getting any advantage tonight may upset the balance they have achieved thus far. He got a slight one Friday before Orton bashed him with the belt, looking scared.

          • The Breaker

            Well, he could get the YES Lock on Orton, only for The Shield to pull him off Orton and deliver the usual beatdown. And then Bryan can stand up defiantly as you were saying.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I do want to see something different to close off Raw. Have Daniel avoid the RKO at the very least. I know his real resistance is somewhere down the line but they need to do something a bit different this week.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I have been thinking. Do you think The Corporation will end up with all the gold at some point during this angle? That can possibly take whatever resistance that is being offered at the time, up another level.

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

      Possible, but who do they bring in as a Diva? I don’t see Steph in the ring these days.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Natalya can probably be the easiest to turn. Kayfabe Wise she may have some grounds to do so

      • Jesse Sherwood

        AJ. She is already showing Steph’s moxie with the ability of some of the AE starlets.

        • Robbie

          Would she have the “look” of a champion though? I wouldn’t be surprised if they turn her face and go for one of the Bella’s or even Tamina.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I think she could, given her look as GM.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Edge kicking off the show! Want to bet his guest is Bryan?

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      Thats the most logical choice.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        You sound like Spock there!

    • The Breaker

      I’m thinking he’ll have a message for Orton, given their past history.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Have no fear, Gesus is here.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sit down! *Pops Gesus in the head*

      • Gesus Oliver

        That’s not very be a star there Mr. Sherwood.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I’m an A**hole, not a Star!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ROOF BLOWN!!!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Wow Listen to that Pop for Edge

  • The Breaker

    I’ve always like Edge’s song. And it also helps that I enjoy the band’s other music too.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Alter Bridge is pretty good. So is Downstait, the guys who do Miz’s music.

      • The Breaker

        Downstait did a pretty cool alternate version of Zack Ryder’s music that I wish they would use. But then first Ryder would have to be on TV…

  • Hayden Tyler

    did the announcer mess up

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      I think that is a thing that Chimel does for Edge

  • The Breaker

    Knew it!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Here is a question for you all. What does bringing Edge and Goldust say about the talent backstage?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It says WWE is rebuilding and is trying to use all of the star power they can to do it.

      • Gesus Oliver

        What do you mean by that?

        • David

          Why not use veterans like Goldust and Edge to put over your newer talent.

          • Gesus Oliver

            in ring?

          • David

            In the ring or on the mic.

          • Gesus Oliver

            My argument there is Orton and Daniel are already established.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Orton needed re-establishment, and Daniel is being solidified.

          • Gesus Oliver

            Completely agreed.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          WWE is needing to build new top tier stars, and what better way than for them to get a seal of approval from older stars?

    • The Breaker

      WWE is looking for huge stars to bring attention to their product since Cena is out.

      • Gesus Oliver

        shouldn’t it be talent in the backs job to elevate their game in his absence?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          And they are trying, but there is only so much that can be done without established stars that can’t work anymore helping.

          • Gesus Oliver

            It does come down to WWE needing to create meaningful consistent mid card feuds.

        • The Breaker

          They can and should step it up, but it’s the job of the big names to bring more eyes to the product. With the presence of the established stars, the younger guys will have an opportunity to get over.

          • Gesus Oliver

            I agree, my argument is with The Rock being here since January no one as elevated their game. It’s been 8 months and no one really stepped it up.

          • The Breaker

            Well if you have The Rock as a measuring stick, no one in the company comes close. But just in the last few months Orton and Bryan have stepped up their game, in my opinion. Punk too. But as far as taking advantage of The Rock’s presence, no one else really benefited. I’m not even sure Punk did, even though he had two high profile matches with the guy.

          • Gesus Oliver

            I’m not saying elevated to Rocks level. I meant more like all eyes were on the product with him there and no one really stepped up their game. Same old boring matches.

          • The Breaker

            Agreed on that. Even the matches The Rock took part in were average at best.

  • Guest

    golddust

  • Gesus Oliver

    I was on vacation for two weeks, three weeks ago. Makes me so bummed. My family lives 90 mins away from this show, I could be there :’(

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Orton hugs that title like it may be taken away from him at anytime!

    • Gesus Oliver

      The little things. He is really stepping up his game.

  • Hayden Tyler

    cheap plug

  • Gesus Oliver

    Moral of the promo, Make sure you make HHH not believe in you.

  • The Breaker

    Edge is a failure? Triple H, HE’S IN YOUR HALL OF FAME!

    • Gesus Oliver

      …details…

    • kingdook24

      And he & Orton were at the ceremony. Gotta love the plot holes.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Edge was a failure? BULL HOCKEY!!!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Canadian joke?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Trying not to cuss up a storm!

  • BlazeKing

    Edge will never be a failure with lines like “I know your nose is huge, but you have to look past it!”

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Ambrose vs Bryan. Yes!

  • Hayden Tyler

    Burn by Edge

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we get our first anatomy chant tonight!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Am I the only one that thought they were going to hurt Vickie not Christian?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yes, Gesus, you are.

      • Gesus Oliver

        I marked out pretty good then I saw christian and still drew emotion.

    • Hayden Tyler

      Vickie really has no relation but as an ex so i figured Christain

      • Gesus Oliver

        I know, for some reason it’s where my mind went to lol

    • Robbie

      I thought Lita…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Nice way to write Christian off of TV for a bit.

    • Gesus Oliver

      I hope nothing is really wrong with him with that concussion.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, better safe than sorry. Let him take a month or two to be sure he’s ok.

        • Gesus Oliver

          that’s a good point. I hate to see him let go due to injury.

      • David

        I’m wondering how much longer before Christian comes out and has to announce his retirement, like Edge did, because he fought in alot of those same matches Edge did and he seems to be getting hurt alot lately.

        • Gesus Oliver

          Agreed, I’m surprised he hasn’t taken cue from Edge and started to fade out. He must really have a love for this business.

  • Scooter

    Edge with the burn!!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    HHH is quickly going into full bore evil heel mode!

    • BlazeKing

      He’s VKM 2.0 haha!!!

  • David

    If Curtis Axel is losing to Kofi Kingston, why am I to believe he’s capable of beating CM Punk.

    • Gesus Oliver

      My thoughts exactly. they’re booking I’m all wrong.

  • Gesus Oliver

    I think heymans body language is interesting there. He is so good.

  • Hayden Tyler

    figured it

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The Tactical Walrus screwed up again!

  • The Breaker

    Think Heyman might call in some insurance for NoC?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He surely needs it!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Makes me excited. who do you think it’ll be?

      • The Breaker

        Realistically, Ryback or Big E Langston. Looking at the talent pool of free agents, it would be interesting to see them bring back Luke Gallows (as a psychological game by Heyman to bring someone from Punk’s past) or Matt Morgan (as he fits the typical mold for a Heyman Guy).

        • Gesus Oliver

          I’m pretty sure he used to be a Heyman guy too. Matt Morgan that is. I just wonder will they try to establish another star or continue bringing people in like an able former ECW talent.

          • The Breaker

            Well there’s plenty of talent in NXT they could use. I’d personally be excited to see Corey Graves or Kassius Ohno.

          • Gesus Oliver

            Good point. I am not a fan of Graves but I’m in the minority. I would also love to see Kassius since we know he could have superb matches with Punk.

  • David

    Since they haven’t established Axel as a threat to defeat Punk, that makes me think we may get a new “Heyman Guy” on Sunday.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Wow, It’s already been 3 years since we’ve seen Goldie on Raw?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep, and I for one have missed him!

      • Gesus Oliver

        Me too. I just can’t believe it’s been three years. Where has the time gone? He is an addition the roster desperately needs.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Maybe I’m crazy, but since WWE owns WCW’s archive, I’d love to see him back as The Natural!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Or when they buy TNA, Black Reign. :-p I don’t know if i’d like to see him back as The Natural.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I thought we agreed never to speak of that atrocity of a gimmick again!

    • David

      What about Seven?

      • Gesus Oliver

        omg, I forgot about that!

        • David

          I love reading about really bad gimmicks, so I know alot of bad gimmicks.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        NO! NO MORE BAD DUSTIN RHODES GIMMICKS!!!!

  • Seth Iser

    Just for the character and the character work alone…I’d love to see Goldust with another small run with the company. He can help flesh out some of the young guys,too.

  • Cubed56

    Not completely sure of the entire backstory of Dustin Runnels run in WWE, but I though they never gave him the true run he needed, I though his work in the ring and on the mic was always above average, sometimes great.

    • Dan

      Probly wrong Era at the time

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Do you think Edge will make an appearance in the main event to aid Daniel and get some retribution for Christian?

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      I mean not to have him do anything too physical, probably just hit a spear on Dean or something

      • David

        I think with his spine, a spear is one of the worst things he could do to it.

        • Navin T. Ramkissoon

          Fair Point.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          How about the reverse DDT from his early days?

          • David

            A con-chair-to

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Really, a wet floor takes out Heyman? BAKA!

    • Seth Iser

      Maybe this is his elaborate way to try to weasel his way out?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Of course!

        • Seth Iser

          Who doesn’t like a modern day weasel? Heh.

  • The Breaker

    Punk spilled some water in the hallway…. his master plan!

    • Gesus Oliver

      It’s residual whiskey from Jericho v Punk.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        After that segment, I need a drink!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Clever little segment. Cue Doctors note!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Is Booker a full fledged heel now or is he falling into line with The Corporation?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I think he is the new Corporate Stooge! He’s Patterson and Briscoe!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Booker T is HHH’s new Briscoe!

  • The Breaker

    So I guess all Booker T has to do at TV’s now is wander the backstage area giving advice?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep, as he has no real job!

      • The Breaker

        He could just go find something to argue about with Teddy Long.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Please, not that again!

  • Stoney

    We
    Want
    Edge

  • Seth Iser

    Holy crap…Dolph’s not even getting a televised entrance.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ziggler gets a jobber entrance and fed to Bray? He’s in the outhouse!

    • K!NG

      well obviously he is rubbing people the wrong way…. maybe hell be in a male cheerleader gimmick next.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Heck, they even mentioned his media comments on Smackdown.

      • Seth Iser

        I doubt he wants any repeats of his Spirit Squad or Chavo Guerrero caddy days…

  • Gesus Oliver

    Wow, he really made someone upset.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You ain’t kidding. Humble pie x1000

      • David

        It makes sense to humble him, it’s not like two of their top faces are out with injuries.

  • Nostaljack

    Uh-oh. Ziggler’s entrance was cut short. Is he about to job to Bray Wyatt too?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Unfortunately so.

  • Cubed56

    Ziggler deserves so much better then this. I understand why it’s happening, but at least what he is saying is true.

  • The Breaker

    Well, let’s see Ziggler sell Sister Abigail!

  • Gesus Oliver

    It’s pretty obvious Ziggler is going to lose. We can at least hope for a quality make to make him jobber easier.

  • Stoney

    Edge never slept with the bosses daughter to stay at the top lol

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Bray needs a quality match so the fans who have not seen his work on NXT can get accustomed to him. It does not appear that he will get it tonight. I could be wrong though

    • Nostaljack

      He’s got Ziggler in the ring with him so it’s certainly possible he might. However, they’re likely going to job him instead so I dunno.

    • Cubed56

      To be honest I was never overly impressed with his in ring work, he’s just so damn good on the mic that it makes people pay attention to him.

  • K!NG

    Bray is built like a army tank with a ferrari engine

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I see what you did there!

  • Seth Iser

    This sort of has to be said…did this match really need a commercial break in the middle of it?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Not really, but they have to make up for losing one on Smackdown last week for a 15 minute HHH promo.

  • The Breaker

    I really hope Dolph keeps his mouth shut in the future. He’s wasting his own potential.

    • Cubed56

      Agreed, that was a perfect example, he carried that match from start to finish.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      If there is one person to not talk about, it’s Orton!

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

        Which is sick because Orton is so easy to bash!

        • Tim

          Sssshhhh you might get buried and and fired

    • kingdook24

      I agree. I’m getting sick of seeing him job every week.

  • Matt

    Once Ziggler loses to santino (by the cobra) that’s the sign his career is completely down the drain

    • K!NG

      soon he will be jobbing to yoshi tatsu at house shows

    • Gesus Oliver

      Say what you want about TNA being minor league and no threat to WWE, but TNA ensures Ziggler has a job.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And in the main event, at that!

  • David

    Has anyone been fired and rehired by the WWE more times than Goldust?

    • Seth Iser

      Marty Janetty

    • K1NG

      jr

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ummm,,, I don’t think so!

  • K!NG

    maybe we will see the return of sable dust

  • Cubed56

    Pure Gold!

  • The Breaker

    The fact that Dustin Rhodes was able to get that gimmick over really shows how good he is.

    • Gesus Oliver

      and how talented the Rhodes family is.

  • Nostaljack

    Yep, Heyman’s about to try to weasel out. That wasn’t predictable or anything. As soon as he said, “I have my own doctor”, ya had to know.

    • Gesus Oliver

      It’s not about knowing where the ride ends but the journey to get there.

  • riseabovehate92

    Is that Damien Sandow lol?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It sure looks close to him!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Lol… Socialized medicine joke!

  • Nostaljack

    Canadian Health-clare system. LOL!!!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Cue CM Punk

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope, Maddox!

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Missed the call there. Lol

    • Nostaljack

      Worse. We got Maddox…

  • The Breaker

    Dr. Kirschembaum? I doubt that’s even his real name.

    • Nostaljack

      No!?!?!?!

  • The Breaker

    “This is awkward” chants. lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Best chant of the night!

      • David

        Cane the doctor may just have taken it.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This is awkward chant!

  • K!NG

    Heyman has sheamus legs

  • Nostaljack

    Why is Axel talking?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Doctor got caned!

    • The Breaker

      That’s not all!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Ok. Now Cue CM Punk

  • K!NG

    pauls just walking that one off

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cane him more!!!

  • Nostaljack

    Why is he caning the doctor? What did he do?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’s Heyman’s doc, so an extension of the slime!

      • Nostaljack

        Duh! My question comes from my being an idiot. LOL!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Sorry, text and sarcasm don’t work very well! I want a kendo stick now!

          • Nostaljack

            I wasn’t paying attention. My bad…LOL!!

  • Cubed56

    That segment was completely worthless and a waste of time.

    • The Breaker

      Agreed, It reminded me of Punk’s sobriety test segment.

  • David

    The crowd was chanting “Kane, the doctor”, I thought he was a dentist.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That was good!!!

    • JDYoong

      Oops…most of my section was chanting “Kill the doctor”

  • K!NG

    How come if the theme of night of champions is every title on the line, that the IC title is not up for grabs?

    • riseabovehate92

      That is what I have been wondering too and when is the last time any title besides the Main titles have been defended?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Last year. NOC was all titles up for grabs.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So Total Divas vs. Diva-Busters. Next!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Did you watch NXT where Aksana and Fox were on there and received no reaction?

      • JDYoong

        The only ones who received any real reaction tonight were Nattie, being Canadian and all, and AJ coz she’s AJ. Team Layla entered together and I don’t think anyone could’ve cared less at the show

    • K!NG

      theres alot of bust in the ring

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “I think I am a little too old for you Jerry! I’m 26, I know you like them younger!”

    • Nostaljack

      Brilliant! He didn’t know what to do with it either which made it even better.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        His GF is 22. It’s pretty gross to see live.

        • Gesus Oliver

          Agreed my dad once dated a girl two years old than my older brother. It was just gross.

    • Lebron James

      I hated how JBL, Cole, and Jerry acted while A.J was on commentary. She was doing great, and those guys just kept cracking jokes and not taking her seriously. It took away from the story she was trying to build.

  • Gesus Oliver

    AJ is such money. Who knew that she could elevate this division?

    • David

      AJ is a woman among girls.

  • Nostaljack

    AJ is doing the best she can but Jerry et all are totally blowing it with her. She’s doing a far better job than they are right now.

  • The Breaker

    So why are Layla & Aksana wearing matching ring gear but Alicia Fox isn’t?

    Also, AJ’s rejection of King was priceless.

  • riseabovehate92

    Did I hear an “Alicia” chant?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      AJ Lee chant.

  • Cubed56

    That was awesome hearing AJ tear all three of the commentators apart

    • Nostaljack

      She absolutely *owned* them!

  • The Breaker

    With Edge using the word describing the male body part, and AJ saying she’s pissed off, the language is pretty spicy tonight!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It is, and I like it! it’s just a little way, but it is some more edge!

  • David

    What is Goldust’s best match? I personally liked his match against Roddy Piper at Wrestlemania 12.

    • Cubed56

      I always thought his work with him and booker t was good, his initial debut as Goldust in wwe was awesome when he stalked Razor Ramon

      • David

        Razor Ramon vs. Goldust was originally the match for Wrestlemania 12, but Ramon didn’t want to do it, so Piper took his place.

        • Cubed56

          I read that somewhere once also,that’s too bad cause that feud was actually very interesting.

          • David

            I read it in Goldust’s autobiography.

  • riseabovehate92

    AJ has an answer for everything they say lol

  • Gesus Oliver

    I don’t quite understand the point of putting Goldust over like well, gold just to not retain him on their roster. Unless he doesn’t want to be signed. since he frequents our indies here now.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He is enjoying the freedom he has now, but I think it is so they can give him a bit of recognition he deserves.

  • K!NG

    maybe they will be a tribute to goldust after the show or something

  • Cubed56

    I would have loved to see Goldust in a program with taker, I think it would’ve been excellent clashing of characters.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    R-Truth vs. ADR… They are pouring Nyquil down our throats now!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    RVD via Video because he can’t enter Canada!

  • Nostaljack

    OK, that little RVD thing was really weak. He can do better than that.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      All of RVD’s promos of late have been weak. Thank goodness Ricardo is his mouthpiece.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Am I the only one feels like this raw is missing something and uninteresting?

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

      No

    • Nostaljack

      Yes. I’m satisfied for now.

    • The Breaker

      I’m still holding out for later in the show for something interesting to happen. It hasn’t been bad though.

      • Gesus Oliver

        I am waiting too. I just feel like this being a go-home show it’s lacking. Not by any means terrible.

  • Adam Wacker

    Fun fact: I once trained with Paul Heyman’s “Doctor” at a local wrestling seminar.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nice to see you here tonight Adam!

      • Adam Wacker

        Just thought I’d drop by while I had a few moments.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    JBL Chant!

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

      the crowd is fighting off the nyquil

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Thank the overlords for it!

      • Adam Paul Haase

        Maybe it’ll be April all over again.

        Then again, nothing can eclipse that.

        Fandango’s entrance music the icing on the cake that night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And now Jerry and Michael Cole chants!

  • The Breaker

    Loud JBL chants. That pretty much says it all.

  • Cubed56

    What other signs does management need to see ADR is not over in anyway. The fans aren’t even paying attention to this match.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    UNDERTAKER chant now!

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

    They are lucky the eagles are crushing the redskins

  • The Breaker

    Undertaker chants? Really?

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

      You can tell when the fans are bored with a match, the chants get interesting!

    • JDYoong

      Sorry about that. I was there live and we got really bored of ADR really fast…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “One of the greatest champions of all time in ADR!” Really JBL?!?! There’s literally hundreds of champions better than him!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Starting with JBL himself

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Seriously! I guess he forgot he was a wrestler at one point!

    • The Breaker

      JBL is just heeling up there. We’re not supposed to take what he says seriously.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yeah, but really that was daft!

        • The Breaker

          JBL also said that The Shield are a better team than the Four Horseman. lol

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

      Stacy says they protest too much!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    There’s a match we haven’t seen in a while! Tag Turmoil for a #1 Contendership to the Tag Titles.

  • David

    Prime Time Players are front and center, the rest of the teams are hidden in background, isn’t obvious who’s going to win.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “I can’t remember the last time Canda helped the US with something!” Hello, Iraq?

    • Gesus Oliver

      what I just turned to Rikki and said!

  • Gesus Oliver

    This is awesome! I have been waiting for them to board cast in a different country and watch Uncle Zeb work.

  • Robbie

    Santino is back :D

    • Gesus Oliver

      Shut it Robbie.

      • Robbie

        Oh boo you busboy

  • The Breaker

    SANTINO! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS MOMENT IS FINALLY HAPPENING!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Santino gets a pop just under Edge! In the words of Ron Simmons… DAMN!!!

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

      I can never help it, I just like the guy

      • JDYoong

        That and he’s also from the Greater Toronto Area! We love our Canadians!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And they mentioned his wrestling academy! That’s a win!

  • The Breaker

    If Dolph was still a heel they’d probably put Santino over on him. Any chance Cesaro eats the Cobra?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And add Swagger to the list of stars who can’t enter Canada thanks to drug charges!

  • The Breaker

    This is EPIC!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we get a fecal matter chant!

  • Gesus Oliver

    When was the last time the Helicopter made the crowd go wild? That was epic!

  • David

    What does it say when Santino Marella can get a crowd into a match more than their World Heavyweight Champion.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Here’s a question: Has anyone else noticed Zeb’s pink bracelets, and do you know what they stand for?

    • Robbie

      Breast Cancer

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nope. These are for a different cause.

        • David

          Maybe he wears them as a tribute to his granddaughter?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yes, and the reason I bring it up tonight is due to the accident happening around this time last year. I would like everyone here to go to the site below and sign their petition to help them pass this law.

            http://www.ameliaslaw.com/

          • David

            Do you have to be from Tennesse to sign it?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Nope, as it is a change.org petition.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Around this time last year, Zeb’s Granddaughter was hit by a multiple convicted felon who was under the influence and fleeing police. He wears them in order to remember her and bring awareness to Amelia’s Law.

  • The Breaker

    Well Cesaro’s credibility is gone.

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

    SANTINO!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Our beloved Leader Richard Gray said today in Ask WNW ” I actually think I’m in the minority as I’m actually enjoying Daniel Bryan’s chase so far.” How can anyone be burnt out or not enjoying this? It’s only had three weeks to develop. What are your thoughts?

    • David

      Yeah I didn’t get he’s in the minority.

      • Gesus Oliver

        I’ve seen a lot of hate for it on my timeline.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Same here, but that’s because some members of the IWC are never pleased.

          • David

            Some people in the IWC are happy that there guy isn’t Champ and don’t wait for the whole story to play out. So I agree with you.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And some hate one man because the regular fans get behind him.

    • Robbie

      I’m really enjoying it so far.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we get Fandango-bombed!

  • Robbie

    This is Fandango not being over…

  • The Breaker

    Instead of doing this, they should’ve had Santino wrestle a gauntlet match.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Sandow gets his first win since MITB!

  • Cubed56

    Huge slap in the face of the miz, u can’t wrestle chants, followed by an enormous pop for fandango.

  • The Breaker

    I think Fandango is 100 for 100 in costing people matches simply by coming out on the stage to his entrance music.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Goldust talking seriously and out of character shocked me, and I love it!

    • Gesus Oliver

      He’s almost like a..Natural on the mic.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I imagined you pulling a David Caruso there!

  • Gesus Oliver

    I am loving the this brewing Rhodes McMahon feud. It has great possibilities.

    • David

      Its a feud that has history. Which they could bring up alot. Like using Virgil and Akeem to make fun of Dusty Rhodes.

  • Cubed56

    I really wanna say Goldust wins with the help of edge or DB, but I honestly think he will put on a great match like he is more than capable of and get screwed or just cleanly lose in the end. I still think Linda will have something to do with Cody coming back as well as have some sort of hand in the whole corporation storyline.

    • David

      I’m still hoping for the debut of the Midnight Rider Jr.

    • Gesus Oliver

      I don’t like the idea of Linda coming back. I hope if she does it’s prominent.

      • Cubed56

        I agree, but who else could come in and step on the toes of Vince, HHH, and steph?

        • Gesus Oliver

          It’d be interesting to see Dusty sign Cody to NXT and have him come up that way.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Dusty isn’t in NXT anymore.

          • David

            When did that happen because he’s still on the NXT roster.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            My apologies. I thought he had been released but he is still with them. Dang memory issues!

          • David

            It’s ok I understand.

  • Gesus Oliver

    How in the hell is this not main event?

    • Cubed56

      I think this answers my question of if Goldust will win or not.

    • Robbie

      I’m thinking the same thing

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Because they want to end with Bryan getting beat down again.

        • Cubed56

          Then we’ve gotta listen to all the haters bash the storyline again.

        • Gesus Oliver

          They don’t need to end with Daniel Bryan getting beat down. They need a chance to get the upper hand. How better than to cost Orton his match and Cody get his job back?

  • Cubed56

    This has a big fight PPV match feel to it, I’m actually on the edge of my seat.

    • Gesus Oliver

      Me too. Great to see Goldie back.

      • Cubed56

        Agreed, I’ve always been a fan of Dustin Runnels, it’s too bad personal demons cost him a real opportunity to shine.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Big “You still got it” Chant!!!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Goldust looks better now than he has ever looked.

    • Cubed56

      I was just gonna say that. It’s early in the match, but it’s bad when a guy who hasn’t been in wwe in 3 years is outperforming “the face” of the company.

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

        But Orty can’t lose this one, no matter what, which sucks all the way around. And are you truly shocked? Orty’s looked good lately, but that’s because of who he’s faced.

        • Cubed56

          Valid point. I think that Orton can lose though, it just can’t be clean.

          • Gesus Oliver

            It’s why I was saying this should have been main event. Bryan costing him this match would have been great going into NoC.

          • Cubed56

            True, but there isn’t really a tie in with Cody and Bryan.

          • Gesus Oliver

            It’s HHH using his abusive powers. Daniel bryan messing up their plans ties in well.

          • Cubed56

            Ok that’s true

  • David

    Lot of times when guys come back for one match, they tend to be a little overweight. Goldust doesn’t look it.

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

      Goldy looks better than he has in years, and his ring work looks solid!

      • Gesus Oliver

        he is putting on a solid gold performance ;)

        • Robbie

          You are on form tonight

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

          I’m very impressed, but I’ve always been a Goldy fan. Though this is much better than I expected, or hoped. And he looks fabby!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And the sick thing is HE’S CARRYING THE MATCH!

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

          This is Orty we’re talking about.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Which should say something even greater! If the top guy can’t carry the match, then who can?

          • thepowerserge

            Orton has never been able to carry a match. His repertoire is worse than Cena’s and THAT’S saying something.

        • Gesus Oliver

          Has Orty ever really carried a match?

  • Robbie

    It’s good to see Goldie back after all these years

  • ldb

    Sad Note for current roster * Goldust is more entertaining and better in ring than most of the guys in the back. Nice to see him back and in great shape. much better than black reign days.

  • Gesus Oliver

    I bet $7 goldust gets in the ring at the count of seven.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we get the methodical Orton stomps… Yep, he’s heel again.

    • Stephen Cash

      I really want to see the punt. I don’t see how you can’t use the punt, but you can use other kicks to the head… Like Cody and Bryan

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Or Ryder’s Broski Boot!

        • Stephen Cash

          I really feel like it would help the character. Like he loses this match, but runs back in to punt Golddust

  • Cubed56

    At least let us see shattered dreams or a curtain call.

  • Gesus Oliver

    being your resident WnW investigative journalist I just wanted to let you know the flag a fan held up in the background was the flag of Newfoundland.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    2 and 7/8ths!

  • The Breaker

    There’s no way Goldust wins. Really good match though.

  • K!NG

    unless someone interferes goldust is not winning this match

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cross Rhodes!

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

    Great match!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Orton kicking out of Cross Rhodes twice is really killing the believability of that move.

    • The Breaker

      Cody might need a new finisher when he returns.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Which also hurts Sister Abigail’s believability, since it is also a swinging STO.

      • Gesus Oliver

        Dang that’s a great point!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And a clean Orton win… Blech!

    • The Breaker

      I thought for sure there’d be a run in.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Same here, or at least some sort of distraction.

  • Cubed56

    Excellent showing by goldust

  • David

    Orton is in Super Orton mode. He kicks out of every finisher.

  • Cubed56

    DB, Cody, Goldust, and two others vs team corporation and survivor series? I’d go for it.

  • Stephen Cash

    Punt! Punt! Punt!

  • Robbie

    That was a great match

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Absolutely Brilliant, and showed that Goldust, after over 20 years in the bus-I-ness is better than most of the current roster. He carried Orton throughout the entire match, and that is just pathetic.

      • Cubed56

        Really wish we could’ve seen Goldust vs Cody at WM this past year, that would’ve been a 5 star quality match, or damn close to it.

  • Cubed56

    They could have at least let Goldust beat him down after the match hit a curtain call then have the shield come in for the save and then a DB run in along with dolph or someone else.

  • Tim

    What goldust lost I can’t believe that. Totally a shocker

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Is there heat on Cesaro or something? I was away for a few minutes and I came back and can’t believe that I saw that Santino beat Cesaro

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It was a return win, and Swagger can’t enter the country, so why not his partner?

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        True but I do hope Cesaro gets rewarded soon for the excellent work that he has been doing in the ring.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Agreed!

  • Cubed56

    I honestly can’t believe creative thinks this gimmick will get over.

  • David

    They sure are hyping up a team, that one month after there debut will be jobbing every week.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ambush interview in 3-2-1…

  • Gesus Oliver

    Man, Goldust looks like he just had a one night stand. Look at that makeup.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Walk of Shame? Nah!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Steph is really laying it on thick. Cody is going to return with a vengeance.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I stand corrected, mean girl Steph!

  • The Breaker

    Steph is ruthless!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Stephanie being the caring heel is perfect. It just sucks she’s reminding me of my wicked mother in law. She’s so ruthless.

  • Tim

    Dear Stephanie McMahon. Please go away and take your more annoying than Fran voice with you

  • jay

    I really just don’t like Orton. Little girl went Awol just wow.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, why show RVD in a Goldman box earlier if he was here? STUPID!

    • Gesus Oliver

      to remind people he will win this weekend.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Still, it made RVD look awful because he sounded like a moron!

  • Cubed56

    I love this storyline, so many angles tied into one. DB vs HHH and Orton, Rhodes family vs McMahon family, along with the shield and their separate feuds. This is by far the best storyline in years.

    • Gesus Oliver

      Completely agreed which is why I can’t understand why people are “burnt out” with this storyline.

      • Alex

        I wouldn’t say I’m burnt out, the only thing that really bothers me is that they keep making it look like Bryan doesn’t have a chance. Everything else is solid so hopefully Bryan can look strong at the end of Raw tonight.

        • Stephen Cash

          That’s the definition of an underdog story… (Facepalm)

          • Alex

            I understand that. But having everything end with a Daniel Bryan beat down is a bit repetitive. It’s just my opinion though.

          • Gesus Oliver

            They have to do that to build the pay off.

          • Alex

            That is a good point, I guess I’d just like to see DB get the upper hand at least once before the Paper Per View, I’m not expecting him to take out the whole Shield, Orton, & HHH all on his own just something to say he has a chance even if it’s a major uphill battle. I’m not saying that the angle is bad just saying what I’d like from it.

          • Gesus Oliver

            15 minutes left tonight Alex.

          • Cubed56

            I can understand wanting to see it, I just think its better the way it is, cause then when DB does get over it will be monumental.

          • Alex

            Fair enough, I guess I’m not being patient. xD

      • Cubed56

        Cause people want results now, they’ve got no patience to wait for the big payoff down the road

      • Anand Vijayakumar

        People are just in a hurry to see DB win the title and then they will go back to complaining – this story isnt exciting. Things have to be given time to come up to its full potential.

        If stone cold was able to beat up Vince and destroy him in their first PPV encounter, we would not have the famous attitude era highlight feud at al…

        • Gesus Oliver

          Exactly.

      • jdl

        Repetition. In six of the last seven shows the heels beat out the lone face while no one did anything to help. “Oh no, we’ll get fired!” That works at first, but eventually when it becomes the reason for the same three heels to dominate Raw and Smackdown it gets old. Couple almost an entire month of programming ending in the exact same way with huge gaps in logic, and it’s easy to see why people are burnt out.

    • Robbie

      Couldn’t have said it better myself

  • Stephen Cash

    What are the chances Ricardo turns on RVD on Sunday, and reveals that it was all a hoax and he was never loyal to RVD.

    • Gesus Oliver

      That makes more sense than him actually being with RVD.

    • The Breaker

      I’ve been thinking that all along myself.

    • Nostaljack

      Way too fast.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      None, as I think RVD is just going to be a champion to get the title on Sandow. He won tonight, so it must be close.

      • Stephen Cash

        I hope so, and I hope that let him hold it for a little bit. (Longer than that night. Lol) I love RVD.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    The Majority of the Wrestlemania 30 Card is going to be derived from this angle.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope so, as it would show that WWE is finally trying to plan long term!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ok, I want an aloha shirt of RVD’s Singlet.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And it is a battle of the Airbrushed Singlets!

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

    Battle of the airbrushed singlets!

    • Nostaljack

      LOL! From the same artist too!

  • Nostaljack

    RBD…LOLOL!!!

    • Stephen Cash

      Hispanics pronounce V’s as B’s. so he technically was not wrong.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It’s still funny!

      • Nostaljack

        Oh, of course. No offense was intended. I just thought it was funny.

        • Stephen Cash

          I wasn’t offended. Just making a point.

  • Hayden Tyler

    Ryback has a match

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I swear on all that is holy that ADR can’t pronounce the V syllable!

    • Stephen Cash

      See below comment.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I did, but it is still funny! You’d think on this major stage he’d have consciously learned to correct himself.

  • The Breaker

    I think a lot of the reason why people are complaining so much about how this angle is progressing is because of the amount of weekly programming WWE has. If RAW wasn’t three hours, people might not tire of it so easily. That, and the fact that people just aren’t as patient today. Some complain about a six week storyline like it’s been six months.

    • Gesus Oliver

      that is a very spot on point.

  • Stephen Cash

    And after RVD gave him permission to use his artist. Smh

  • Cubed56

    And a good old O’Doyle Rules to close out this match!

  • Gesus Oliver

    I understand the Goldberg chant but at this point what does it matter?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Really? Almost anyone else wouldn’t have been DQed for crotching their opponent on the post! Ryback gets it every time!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Big show will hit them with a chair. Then he can claim he never touched them. You heard it here folks.

    • Tim

      I was so looking forward to that logic. But as always. Yeah

  • Nostaljack

    This whole DQ thing has gotten old. That’s two in one night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And this one was for something anyone else wouldn’t have been DQed for!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Well that negates Big Show for the main event there.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That was a good waste of a CRT TV!

    • Guest

      Right in the childhood!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        The only reason I keep one is so I can play Duck Hunt, Metal Combat, and Yoshi’s Safari on it.

    • Gesus Oliver

      lol

  • Justin Lal

    Not a strong enough main event for me to tune in… changing the channel to MNF.

    • Stephen Cash

      To watch the texans?! Boo

      • Justin Lal

        Exciting game so far.

      • Cubed56

        Willing to bet your all talk Justin and u still have raw on right now.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Wow, so Bryan, easily the best in ring technician in WWE, vs. Ambrose, one of the best brawlers WWE has had in years, isn’t interesting to you? Why do you still watch?

      • Justin Lal

        Not for a main event.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Then what would you have done for it? For me, I see the future of the company in our ring right now showing us why they should be there. I’d take that over a one-shot from a legend and the “Champion” he had to carry the whole match any night.

  • The Breaker

    I hope Big Show doesn’t start sobbing like a kid in time out.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You know, I thought the same thing! He looks like my son with a beard when he cries!

      • The Breaker

        Your son is bald?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Close enough. He gets military cuts. Straight clippers, no guard.

      • Stephen Cash

        Comment of the night. Lol

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

      You’re calling Show nicer names than I have when he cries!

      • The Breaker

        I don’t want to be too mean. He might read this later and bawl his eyes out!

  • Stephen Cash

    If I wasn’t scared he would die, I would want an edge spear tonight. I wish he returned tonight to full action to assist Bryan, I know I’m dreaming. He was just amazing!

  • Bob Backlund

    I enjoy the storylines, but right now I am getting bored with this. It’s the same thing over and over again. Week in and week out.

    • Nostaljack

      Maybe Bryan or Ambrose will entertain you with their use of the chicken wing at some point, sir.

      • Bob Backlund

        I’m thinking someone will pull an Arnold Skaaland and throw in the towel.

  • Justin Lal

    Stop doing the surfboard stretch if you can’t do it right! #botch

    • Nostaljack

      So much for not watching “Raw”, huh?

      • Justin Lal

        Commercial on MNF :)

        • Nostaljack

          Given in to the Raw. Surrender to the Raw. Become one with the Raw…

    • Cubed56

      I knew you were all talk and still had raw on.

      • Justin Lal

        It’s called a commercial.

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

          Riiiiiiiight!

        • Gesus Oliver

          “commercial”

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

            Wink, wink, nudge, nudge!

        • Cubed56

          No dude, you are the biggest Bryan hater I know, and are always complaining about him and pointing out apparent flaws of his and bashing him, so I know u have raw on so you can bash him after the match and nitpick his match on facebook later.

          • Gesus Oliver

            Just a reminder, don’t be hostile. Also if anyone wants to add me on Facebook look up Gesus Oliver.

          • Cubed56

            Nothing hostile, I respect Justin and his opinion, just having a little fun with him. Sorry to you Justin if you feel I was attacking you, it’s all in good fun dude.

          • Gesus Oliver

            I know man I just don’t want to see things get out of control in here. Just a friendly reminder :)

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

            Doing what I would do, and what I ask. Thanks Gesus.

          • Cubed56

            I gotcha, but believe me you’d know if I was being hostile, ask Xavier and Jesse, they’ve seen what I can be capable of, lol.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye, but he was trying to help me.

          • Cubed56

            I know. You know me bud, I’m just messing around, I’m sorry if it caused any problems.

          • Gesus Oliver

            only problem you caused is not being Facebook friends…friend.

          • Cubed56

            Lol, we can fix that.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Send me one too.

          • Cubed56

            Will do.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            You’re fine Cubed!

    • Stephen Cash

      He does that move right 99% of the time…

  • Nostaljack

    The crowd is totally into this with them. Nice job!

  • Stephen Cash

    I think they’ll give Goldust a rematch for Cody’s job

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rollins disturbed JBL’s hat! Clothesline him JBL!

    • The Breaker

      I don’t think he cherishes it like Punk does his diet soda.

  • The Breaker

    Reigns really bashed his head into the steel steps there!

  • The Breaker

    Small package for the win!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’s Mr. Small Package!

  • Gesus Oliver

    I bet orton comes out and Show takes him out!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And that is how you make him look stronger going into a PPV!

    And then I see the Shield and Orton attacking Bryan.

  • Nostaljack

    THE CHAIR!!!

  • David

    Stephanie didn’t say anything about not hitting orton.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’s true… Let’s see if logic prevails!

      • Gesus Oliver

        Nope

        • The Breaker

          In the words of Dean Ambrose!

  • Stephen Cash

    She said he couldn’t touch the shield, never said anything about Orton…

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Well they did something different tonight. I did wish that they would have had Bryan avoid the RKO though. Let’s see if Show KO’s Orton instead

  • Nostaljack

    *This* is getting really old. Why are we doing the knockout thing again.

  • Stephen Cash

    Knock out Orton!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    KO Punch in 3-2-1!

    • Hayden Tyler

      nope db witha move

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Knee to Orton’s face!

  • The Breaker

    Bryan finally gets the upper hand!

    • Anand Vijayakumar

      Ambrose Vs DB – Wish we had a live coverage of RAW outside US. I gotta wait for the taped edition in my local time tomorrow night :(

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sorry, man. I’m guessing in India? Kendra is trying to post results as fast as she can.

        • Anand Vijayakumar

          Close – In Singapore :)

          Reading results kind of kills the suspense when we watch the show but I guess the benefit is – we can skip a show if its boring. Am sure gonna watch this one :)

  • Cubed56

    Actually liking that side of Orton talking to show there, and low and behold Bryan’s gets one over the corporation, IWC rejoice!

    • Justin Lal

      I still don’t understand why the IWC was getting restless with Bryan not getting the upper hand. You would think they would have enough common sense to understand how a storylines goes when it’s a face going up against a heel machine/stable.

      • Cubed56

        I agree, I liked the way it was going, and I’m a little disappointed that Bryan did get the upper hand tonight, but they had to give a glimmer of a chance for him this weekend to sell the PPV.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It’s simply that our society is so scatterbrained these days that anything over 2 months is a chore for them to follow seems like. Got to love ADD kids! I remember when storylines took up to a year to develop!

        • Cubed56

          Could you imagine how they would’ve reacted to HBK/Brett Hart storyline, in actuality that was an 8 year build.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            They’d have killed Vince!

          • Cubed56

            No doubt

  • Stephen Cash

    Love the ending! Not predictable, made Bryan look strong, and not show!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Not exactly the upper hand we were looking for but that dash of spice we needed. This raw seemed to be a lack luster go home but that ending gives us the intrigue to buy the ppv. I am genuinely curious how they will book this weekend.

    • Gesus Oliver

      1 down? Care to explain why?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Good ending. They did things a bit differently. Even though I know DB is going to lose Sunday I can’t wait till he unleashes hell on the corporation at some point down the road.

    • Gesus Oliver

      Hey may not lose. There could be some screwy or dusty finish.

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

        There’s so many ways it could go, but I’ll be shocked if Bry wins. It’s too early in the storyline. Or, I think it is.

        • Alex

          Same here. I can see Bryan trying to hold onto the title once he wins it and that being interesting but I feel like if they want this cooperation angle to last until Mania they should have Bryan chase a little longer and then win the belt. I feel if planned right this Hunter vs Bryan angle can last a while and still stay interesting through-out.

  • Tim

    Eh at least it was a little different. but wwe needs to go back to the two hours. Raw is becoming more and more of a YouTube skip around show.

    • Justin Lal

      I agree. 3 Hours is tough to sit through.

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

        Try writing the live results! I used to groan at three hour shows, now I have to do it every week! It’s not an easy three hours!

        • Justin Lal

          I feel you. It takes a lot of energy I bet to do this. Kudos to you. But WWE simply doesn’t have the talent nor the creative storylines to fill 3 hours.

          • Alex

            I somewhat disagree on the talent(there’s some NXT Talent that could be moved up) part but fully agree on the creative part.

          • Justin Lal

            Well that’s true. They do have talent, but I was talking about the talent they choose to use. If they really wanted to they have talented guys to use.

          • Alex

            Oh sorry I misunderstood, I fully agree with your original comment then. xD

        • Tim

          Lately you could just copy and paste

  • Justin Lal

    Edge’s mic work tonight was awesome! His quick witted remarks were so well done tonight. It wasn’t long enough to be a “pipe bomb” but his work against Triple H was the best I’ve seen from anyone, including CM Punk.

  • Jake

    Tony Chimel’s voice crack was great LMAO.

    • JDYoong

      Nothing screams “Edge Return” better than the return of Tony Chimel’s voice crack.

  • jdl

    Gotta wonder why they don’t just sign Goldust to a new contract after a showing like that. At the very least he should be down at NXT teaching those newbies how to embrace a gimmick, how to put psychology into a match and how to be a superstar. He’s exactly what a lot of the people down in NXT need, he may never have been a world champion or had a top run, but you will not find many people who have a better understanding of how to present themselves in the ring and in front of the camera than Goldust.

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

      I completely agree, but I’ve always been a Goldy fan. He looked great, worked that ring hard, and really impressed. There’s only so much they could do at the moment because of storyline, but he should be brought back soon. I’m still itching to see the brothers feud!

      • Gesus Oliver

        He needs to be brought back after December. He is at a “The wrestlemania if indies” show then.

      • Alex

        I agree Kendra, I was disappointed that they never did Cody vs Goldust at Wrestlemania. But it’s still possible for the future.

      • Cubed56

        Maybe this is a setup for it, Cody could come back join the corporation, and turn on Goldust for not being able to get his job back and always being the “embarrassment” of the Rhodes family. I doubt it though I think they gotta try this Cody face run first.

  • Gesus Oliver

    thanks for the entertainment tonight everyone. I hope we can see some of you in the Live Blog during Night of Champions sunday. I always enjoy the debate. Have a good week. Let’s hope this is a fast week and Sunday will be here before we know it.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Thanks everyone for the great turnout! Good Night!

  • kingdook24

    Finally.

    That word is the only thing I could come up with for the ending. 4 weeks of seeing DB just get dismantled & Big Show crying – to FINALLY have DB & BS go over the Corporate Evolution saved the show from repeating the same process week after week of Ziggler jobbing, filler matches that go no where, Heels interfering & Faces don’t, Big Show crying, DB getting beat up & the Heels dominating for the bulk of the 3 hours.

    Seriously, after the Goldust/Orton match – I literally almost turned off the television. What was the point of that match anyway NOT to have Goldust win? It did nothing IMO. And what’s with Orton making everyone’s finishers look like a joke – kicking out everytime? People say Cena have 5 Moves of Doom? Hell, Orton only has ONE move of Doom – the RKO, the Ender to All Matches apparently. Moreover, Ziggler jobbing every week is getting old as well – I understand he’s having backstage heat right now but he’s a former WHC & having him job for 4 weeks straight is alil’ too much for my tastes.

    It was so awesome having Edge back even if it’s only for one week. I already knew that Edge was gonna be the voice of the WWE Superstars since everyone of them is scared s***less to say anything of the Corporate Evolution. But honestly, as great as that segment from Edge was – IMO – that should have came from Daniel Bryan. Bryan is the one they have beef with, not Edge. It’s not like they’re gonna fire him – look at all they’ve done to him so far whenever DB gets under their skin; Triple Powerbomb, RKO & the typical beatdown. Let DB speak more freely next time – other that, that segment & the ending made the night.

    NoC is obviously going to be carried by these two matches: Punk/Axel/Heyman & Orton/Bryan. It’s so obvious DB isn’t going to win the match – maybe DQ or the way Orton has been booked as of late, clean. I do feel it is too early for DB to win the title back – it is more fun having him chase for it, as long as he’s getting the upper hand sometimes. Having a face chase for the title, but get beat up every week is tiring & boring. The writers seriously need to go back & study the Austin/McMahon feud because DB/Corporate Evolution’s feud is basically that.

  • JDYoong

    Out of curiosity, how did the crowd turn out on TV? Being there live makes everything louder! Oh, and if people are wondering about the constant Randy Savage chants throughout the show, it was coz there was a guy dressed up as Savage in attendance, we all kept chanting it to get him to stand up and pose.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The crowd was awesome on TV! Quite loud, and when you guys got bored, we loved the chants coming out!

  • thepowerserge

    The only bad thing about this storyline is the devolution of Big Show from World’s Largest Athlete to World’s Largest Crybaby.
