In Ring Segment

Orton out to the ring. Cole, King and JBL argue about there being no physical interference, but that The Authority distracted Big Show which gave Orton the win.

Orton – I think that I’m owed an apology. I’m an owed an apology by the doubters, the WWE ‘Universe’, those who thought he wouldn’t show up today as WWE Champ. The Authority said they’d join me ringside, so please welcome Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.

Steph and Trip come out in their power suits. This week Steph’s suit jacket is much more figure flattering than usual.

Trip – Congratulations Randy, we couldn’t be any more pleased. When I hand picked you to be the future of this company ten years ago, I knew you have the potential to be one of the greatest Superstars in the WWE.
Steph – Last week we gave you the motivation, planted the seeds of doubt, and did what we knew you’d do ask Champ. You reached deep down inside and rose above and were victorious. It’s always nice when we’re proven right.
Orton – There you go, and you’ve somehow made this all about yourselves. I didn’t need your help last night, yet when I was on the verge of an untainted win, you came to ringside. I didn’t need your help to prove I’m The face of the WWE.

“Daniel Bryan! Daniel Bryan!” chants.

Trip – Randy, we said there’d be no physical interference, and there was no physical interference.

“Daniel Bryan!” chants.

Trip – Now, you might have had a hard time remembering this as you were unconscious at the time, but we came down because it looked like there was going to be a new WWE Champion at the time.

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Orton – I don’t need you protection I can take care of myself! (to the fans) SHUT UP! I can take care of myself!

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Orton – I took everything Big Show had to dish out, unlike someone else I know (looking right at Trip), and I stood back up and got the job done. I slayed the giant. I slayed the giant because I’m The face of the WWE! I’m the WWE Champion. I’m the greatest Superstar in the 50 years that this company has been around. The greatest star in the WWE, ever! Nobody can take that away from me. Not you (Trip). Not you (Steph). Not any one of you people can take that from me. Nobody can!

Cena’s music hits and out he comes slowly, not stopping, but saluting on his way down the ramp. Cena into the ring with a big smile to the mixed reaction.

Cena – How you doin’, John Cena, WHC. (Cena extends his hand) Oh yeah, I forgot, you’re Randy Orton, the guy slayed a giant, and the guy standing here looking like a giant piece of…

Steph – John! Whoa, I’m not my father, I don’t want to see you spontaneously combust, but that being said, I don’t want to waste time, so what exactly do you want?

Cena – I want you for a second to listen to these folks. You wanna know why they chant for Bryan, why the chant “YES!”, they’re sick of the administrative BS!

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Cena – Looks like I struck a cord. They’re sick of guys like you feeling entitled, being coddled, protected, being confused little boys. But you asked one question I found interesting, “Who is Champion?” Because the way I look at it right now, there’s two Champions in this very ring. I say we cut the administrative BS and find and answer to that question, because I think it’s time there should be only one.

Orton – You’re not going to seriously consider listening to this!

Cena – Enough! Enough! This is not between them. This is Champion to Champion. This is between you and me. This is man to man. You got the guts? Will you do it? This is a match 11 years in the making. It’s not even up to you. I challenge you in front of this audience. In front of the world! Randy Orton vs John Cena for the WHC and the WWE Championship!

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Steph – Normally I hate it when they do that (fans chanting “YES!”) but we have been talking about this for a while now.

Orton – Wait a minute! When I walked in you were planning it? You’ve been plotting this all along? So what I thought was going on, really is going on.

Trip – Randy, grow up. Alright, a minute ago you were going off about how confident you are, now you’re crying about it? Tell you what we’re going to do. We’re going to do something epic. In three weeks (huge letdown groan from the crowd), at Tables, Ladders & Chairs (heat) we’re going to hang the WHC above this ring. And hang the WWE Championship above this ring, and we’re going to make history. We’re going to do something epic. Orton vs Cena in a TLC Match!

Both men, facing each other, raise their belts high in the air. Cena smirks, Orton looks quite pissed. Orton leaves the ring rubbing his head, then stops and looks back at Cena who raises his strap high in the air.

The Shield faces Cody, Goldust and Rey, next!

Miz – Welcome to the most must-see TV show in history, welcome to Miz TV! Tonight my guest is a 7 time ProBowler, a Superbowl Champion, named one of 100 NFL players of all time, he’s one of New York’s most loved athletes and TV personalities, you can watch him on every weekday morning on Live with Kelly & Michael. Please welcome Mr. Michael Strahan!

Out comes Titus O’Neil in a very sexy suit and a blackened gap in his teeth.

Miz – Michael, you never looked so good.

O’Neil (with a huge lisp) – Let me start of by saying how great it is to be here in New York on Monday night RAW. And with former WWE Champion, and former WrestleMania main eventer.

Miz – It’s a slight honor standing next to the 2001 Defensive Player of the Year, but with all you accolades and your job as a Fox NFL analyst, and all the things you do, and your sidekick with Kelly Ripa, I have a question, and I know it’s on everyone’s mind, what’s with the gap? Why don’t you hawk that ring and fix those things?

O’Neil – That gap is distinctive. It show life, especially when I smile.

Miz – That gap is wider that The Giants and the Playoffs. (huge heat) Oh, Miz is a bad guy, it was a joke!

O’Neil – Let’s switch gears real fast, and I’d like to get out of here tonight. There’s a lot of great Superstars in the back. But one man in particular, I think this one man has everything, size, speed, agility, personality. Not talking about Reigns or Big Show, I’m talking about Titus O’Neil! (heat and barking)

Michael Strahan comes out, points to his gap and heads for the ring slapping hands on both sides and getting a lot of love. He’s pumped up and gets in the ring. Strahan and O’Neil shake hands and chest bump each other. Miz hands Strahan a mic.

Strahan – What’s up Long Island, New York? I gotta say thank you to Titus and Miz, you guys were great, but your jokes, weak! The backup towel boy has better jokes than that!

Miz – Really?

Strahan – Really.

Miz – Really?

Strahan – And I like you Titus, your suit game is nice, brother, but you gap game is weak, brother. You gonna wear the gap, you don’t have the confidence. The WWE, that’s what it’s about, it’s about fun. You ready to have fun tonight. I want to welcome you to Monday night RAW! I want to thank you for letting me be Special Guest Host. On good authority man, on very good authority, tonight we’re going to have a tag team main event. In one corner will have Randy Orton and his partner ADR (heat). Oh, you don’t like them? Okay. How about this, in the other corner, we have someone who can play the entire right side of the offensive line. 7 foot, 440 pound Big Show. And his partner, WHC John Cena. What do you know about that man? What do you know about that?

Miz (shakes Strahan’s hand) – There’s no doubt that you’re a great host, but I’m a host and a WWE Superstar who performs in this ring each week. Michael Strahan, think you can hack it in a WWE ring?

Strahan – Can I hack it against a guy like you? I think Kelly Ripa’s tougher than you.

Miz – I don’t think you understand, I’m the most must-see WWE Superstar of all time! I’m not sitting, drinking coffee with Kelly every morning. Maybe ten years ago…

Strahan – Don’t let the suit fool you, there’s a bad man under here!

Miz – Dude, you were cool 15 years ago!

O’Neil – Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-hold, hold, hold!

Strahan – You better help your boy out!

O’Neil – Listen. I understand, you’re a great athlete and this is not football. If Miz gives you a simple move, you may not make it to Kelly tomorrow.

Strahan – He’s going to give me a simple move to keep me from working with Kelly Ripa tomorrow?

Miz – One simple move, what about a hip toss, Michael. Think you can handle a simple hip toss?

Strahan – Y’all think I can handle a simple hip toss? (pop) Okay, let’s try a simple hip toss.

O’Neil – For insurance purposes, let me move this stuff out of the way.

Strahan – I’m going to hold my mic while we do it.

Miz – You really want to hold your mic while you do it?

O’Neil – Kelly, I’m available if he doesn’t make it through this tomorrow.

Strahan leads in, Miz tries to hit the move and Strahan doesn’t budge.

Strahan – That was it?

Miz – Man, he was stiff!

O’Neil removes his jacket as fans bark.

Strahan – Take off that jacket big man! Take off that jacket and let’s see what you got. I’m loose!

Miz – You think O’Neil is going to toss him, or do you cheer Strahan? (pop)

Strahan – Me and you Titus, you ready?

O’Neil is ready, but Strahan blocks him.

Miz – We understand you’re afraid to take a hip toss, but here’s what you do. Pretend I’m Tony Romo throwing TD passes all over the blue and red.

O’Neil – I don’t think you want to say that in New York.

Strahan – That’s okay, because 9 times out of 10, it is pretend. I ain’t worry about that, let’s go.

O’Neil – Let the crowd get hyped for this!

Strahan rushes Miz, blocks him, and hits his own hip toss that he’s obviously practiced quite a bit with Miz.

Strahan – Oh year, oh yeah, it’s real!

O’Neil – Look, that’s what I’m talking about!

O’Neil sets up and they dance together chanting, “Millions of dollars”, but then Strahan hits a hip toss on O’Neil! Miz points and laugh.

Strahan – Yeah, that felt good. If you’d had your gap right, I wouldn’t have had to do that!

I don’t care if you put Marty DeRosa, Matt Classic, Colt Cabana, Scott (?). It doesn’t matter how many bodies in this ring, or how many obstacles you put in front of Daniel Bryan and CM Punk, because we’re going to burn them all to the ground babay!

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Bryan – And I have looked into the soulless eyes of Bray Wyatt, and it is very, very clear that he is not finished playing whatever sick and twisted games he’s playing, and he’s not going to stop until he’s finished us. But we will not let that happen, and there’s only one question left. Punk, what time is it?

Punk – It’s clobberin’ time!

Bryan – “YES!”

The camera is close in on Orton and you can see the huge bruises on his chest from Big Show’s chops last night at Survivor Series. Cena out to the stage, gets the fans cheering on each side, trying to get each side louder. He picked one side as his section, then said, “Now it’s time to go to work!” Cena slid his strap into the ring ahead of him, and the ref stopped it as the belt was going to slide right out the other side. The ref fumbled the belt picking it up. Cena reached for it, and they had a bit of tug-o-war over the belt until Cena took it away to pose with it. Dueling chants for Cena as he takes off his shirt and throws it to the fans.

ADR circles Big Show a bit, but then slammed back into a corner and takes big blows as well as a SICK chop to the chest. Big Show shushes the fans, then chops ADR. ADR kicks at Big Show and punches at him, but a shoulder block drops ADR. Again Big Show shushes, but ADR ducks. Dueling Cena chants and he’s not even in the ring. ADR flees and tagsout. Big Show smiles an on Orton with big punches in a corner. Shushing and a SICK chop. Orton drops to the bottom buckle to regroup. Another shush and another slap. Orton’s chest is now bright red and bruised. Head butt to Orton. Big Show slams Orton, then drop an elbow for two.

Orton holds his chest, but then Big Show chokes Orton on the second rope.

    Well, Survivor Series is over, and now it’s time for the fallout on RAW. Will Monday night be better than Sunday night in the WWE? One can only hope.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Survivor Series was awful, from the late booking to the overall poor delivery made it feel much less than one of the “big four” as WWE claims it to be. BTW the background on WNW is dark and I can barely read the comments.

  • Nick K

    Im there right now

  • Justin Mayo

    This font is driving me crazy, you see it too KB? Dark screen covering up almost the whole page, bad backing for comments. Gonna try refreshing again, but don’t think that’s it..

          Strange!. And you see it too Alex?

          • Alex Gallardo

            Yes, I’ve noticed this since Friday and I wasn’t sure if it was a glitch, or a really bad design change.

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

        I haven’t seen any changes, looks the same as always to me.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Well there is a change for Justin and myself. The background is dark from the article and down making it hard to read the comments.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Looks like it might be a refresh problem, as I had a similar issue last week. I closed my browser and rebooted it and it was just fine after that. Also, are you on PC or mobile?

          • Justin Mayo

            PC, and just closed and rebooted, still having issues

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Ok, then you might check your Disqus settings and make sure nothing is different.

          • Justin Mayo

            where’s the settings? hard to see with this background, and like me and alex have said, it’s on all wnw for us

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

            I figured Jesse might have more of a clue than I do about all this.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Settings are up at the top of the page, by the big comment box.

    And it’s not even showing my comment after refresh….hold on, let me try rebooting

  • The Breaker

    So tonight is the pre-Thanksgiving RAW, which will see the return of the dreaded “Guest Host”… looks like we’ll have to rely on ourselves for entertainment!

  • The Breaker

    So tonight is the pre-Thanksgiving RAW, which will see the return of the dreaded “Guest Host”… looks like we’ll have to rely on ourselves for entertainment!

    • Alex Gallardo

      These guest hosts do nothing for WWE. There have been very few that have actually gotten big numbers. Plus with Raw being three hours having these useless guest hosts on is a waste of time and can hurt ratings.

      • The Breaker

        Yeah, I don’t think anyone that watches RAW on a weekly basis cares about the guest hosts. They watch for the actual wrestlers.

        • Alex Gallardo

          They’re used mostly to plug whatever show or even they’re doing. They add nothing to the show but a break for people to change the channel and go do other things besides watch Raw.

          • The Breaker

            Pretty much. WWE shouldn’t be giving people added reasons to switch away.

          • The Breaker

            Pretty much. WWE shouldn’t be giving people added reasons to switch away.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Especially when they’re three hours as I mentioned above.

          • The Breaker

            The three hour RAW doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Even if the shows were still two hours, WWE always manages to add in a proportionate amount of filler anyhow.

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

      Breaker, is this area looking dark or strange to you? Are you a Premium member?

      • The Breaker

        I’m a regular reader, and everything on the site is displaying as it should.

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

          Good to know, thanks. Others are seeing things strangely.

          • Alex Gallardo

            WE ARE THE CHOSEN ONES!

          • The Breaker

            Hm, so it could be related to being premium?

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

            That’s why I was asking if you’re premium. They are not either, but I am. I’m not seeing it.

          • The Breaker

            Oh. Well if I notice anything unusual I’ll be sure to speak up.

      • Robbie

        I’m premium and it’s fine for me

      • David Jr.

        It was looking dark and strange to me.

        • Justin Mayo

          still doing that for me too bro

        • Jesse Sherwood

          And you are not Premium, correct?

          • David Jr.

            Correct.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Alright, I’m texting RG to see if we can get a solution.

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

            I texted,but you might explain it better.

          • David Jr.

            Oh mine was, it’s better now. I switched to an older computer.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Welcome to the club.

          • Justin Mayo

            Back to the kitchen! Our first club meeting’s tonight, and I don’t see the table full of cake and beer you promised!

          • Alex Gallardo

            I didn’t promise ANYTHING. I do have a Miley Cyrus CD if you guys want to add some music to this meeting.

          • Justin Mayo

            Well…can you get the cake and beer anyways? lol

          • Alex Gallardo

            I guess I will. But we’re still listening to Miley.

          • Justin Mayo

            Fine by me, I have earplugs! Everyone wins!

          • Xavier

            No Thank You lol

          • Alex Gallardo

            YOU’RE NOT IN THE CLUB.

          • Xavier

            Lol

          • Alex Gallardo

            NO CENA FANS ALLOWED LOL.

          • Xavier

            Fine! I’m taking my ball and going home. I lost my smile

        • Jesse Sherwood

          David, can I get what Browser you are using?

  • Danny Philippi

    Hello everyone. How are all you guys and girls doing after the thrilling Survivor Series (at least till 10pm) in what will go down to me as the second best event that occurred in the state of Massachusetts last night. I wonder though about the ending of the show. Will there be a two-man powertrip, title unification, or a brand new championship belt?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Thrilling? It was pretty awful for the most part. I, myself was somewhat looking forward to the main event, but even that was a disappointment.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Thrilling? It was pretty awful for the most part. I, myself was somewhat looking forward to the main event, but even that was a disappointment.

  • Danny Philippi

    I just hope tonight’s show is hot because next week is Super Bowl 47.5. Saints at Seahwaks for the NFC best crown.

    • Xavier

      GO SEAHAWKS!

      • Danny Philippi

        I just want to know what comes first, a very good 180-minute PPV or the Houston Texans winning a game? Both have not happened since September.

        • Xavier

          Lol good question. Survivor Series was very average. I streamed it because I kind of figured it would be.

        • Xavier

          Lol good question. Survivor Series was very average. I streamed it because I kind of figured it would be.

  • Justin Mayo

    Well, guess it’s not just me, so if I’m quiet tonight or replies are delayed, blame the blackness I’m getting on WNW and comments failing to show up right away!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hey everyone! Sorry I’m late, but the comic relief is here!

    • Xavier

      Just don’t let it happen again

    • Alex Gallardo

      It’s always nice to see everyone here. I just don’t like it when things are too loud. However, I really hope Raw is good tonight because after a disappointing and an almost depressing episode of Family Guy they need to do good again. But Miley was great at the AMAS

      • Robbie

        Zeb was better

        • Alex Gallardo

          LOL NOPE. Zeb will never get 200,000,000 views on YouTube for twerking.

          • Robbie

            That’s because Miley created it and made it embarrassing. Zeb did it and made it look class

          • Alex Gallardo

            Please, twerking was created in 1993. Miley just manipulated you all into thinking she made it

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And she got upstaged by Gaga! Raw has a lot do make up for last night in my eyes, as there has to be something wrong if I only get 1 prediction wrong!

        • Justin Mayo

          I got 2, my best yet…but from what I read last night, not proud of that..

        • Alex Gallardo

          I like them both to be honest and Lady Gaga did do a great job but I love them both.

        • Xavier

          It’s not hard to upstage neither of them. Miley isn’t talented and Gaga is a cheap knock off of Madonna

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

            Bravo, Xavier! Bravo!

          • Xavier

            It had to be said

      • Robbie

        Also, I am very much upset at Family Guy

        • Alex Gallardo

          Vinnie just annoys the hell out of me. Plus, Brian was my favorite character.

          • Robbie

            Haven’t seen it but it’s all over facebook and just can’t bring myself to see him go :(

          • Alex Gallardo

            Nothing will replace the bond he had with Stewie. It was similar to the Outsiders in how good they were together.

      • The Breaker

        I don’t watch Family Guy but I’m not sure why they did that.

        • Alex Gallardo

          They killed off Brian, one of my favorite characters and replace with an awful new character.

          • The Breaker

            I know, I heard. I was saying that I’m not sure what the point of killing off a character on a comedy is. Especially when it’s the only character a lot of people like.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Him and Stewie were the stars of that show, the only good thing about that show now is that Miley Cyrus is making a guest appearance.

          • The Breaker

            I’m surprised they waited that long to have her appear. News about the upcoming Simpsons crossover is kind of interesting.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I don’t watch that show too much but at this point Family Guy has really hurt my faith in them.

          • The Breaker

            I like The Simpsons but don’t watch religiously. Contrary to popular opinion, I think they’re still good for a laugh.

    • Danny Philippi

      The only comic relief I see is the explanation for last night’s PPV conclusion.

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

        Conclusion? How about most of the show?

        • Danny Philippi

          I had low expectations for this PPV due to the lack of build-up and late match-making. I will be ticked off if this happened at the Rumble.

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

            I expected they’d pull it out somehow, yet they didn’t.

    • The Breaker

      Hornswoggle? Where?

    • Justin Mayo

      have you had a glitch in any Pokemon game you’ve played where you use a move once, like Blaze Kick, and it’s at full PP, yet you go to use it a 2nd time and you’re at 12/16?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yeah, it is a well known one with Blaziken

        • Justin Mayo

          NOOOOO!!! I’m on elite 4 and I keep losing blaze kicks and a few double kicks…if i lose sky uppercuts, there shall be hell to pay

  • mezzmer

    Cant wait for raw tonite

  • Danny Philippi

    Quick question: Is it safe to assume the comparison of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning to John Cena and Randy Orton or am I thinking wrongly?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      For current stars, I’d say so.

    • Xavier

      It’s fair keyfabe wise. Cena/Orton has been the biggest rivalry in the WWE since 2004 probably, those two produced some great/classic matches together. Sadly Triple H interjected himself into the Cena/Orton feud at WM24. Should of been Cena vs Orton 1 on 1 that year.

  • Robbie

    Am I the only one who’s WNW is completely fine?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      No, mine is ok as well, but I am a tech geek.

    • The Breaker

      Mine is working normally.

  • Danny Philippi

    2 MINUTES!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Guys and ladies: I need to know what browser you are using if you are having background issues.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’m using Google Chrome and I do have a background issue.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Try opening WNW in IE and tell me if it persists.

        • Robbie

          Mine’s Chrome, don’t know if it makes a difference

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Just trying all possibilities.

          • Robbie

            From what I’ve read, it seems like it’s only non-premium

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Already got that in my message.

        • Justin Mayo

          Can’t stand IE!!!

        • Alex Gallardo

          I tried using it Firefox and it works! IE runs bad for me. Thanks Jesse!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Alright, so it may be a browser issue. Thanks guys.

          • Alex Gallardo

            No problem.

    • Justin Mayo

      chrome

    • Xavier

      Google Chrome is working fine for me

    • JJ

      I normally use I.E or Firefox, and before, even today, it was doing it the whole time, this is the first the background is back to white like normal.

  • Danny Philippi

    Over/under 3.5 minutes till Cena and Orton face-off.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Over.

  • The Breaker

    I hate how they’re making Orton the whiny, coward heel. It is completely wrong for him, and it’s the worst kind of heel.

    • Xavier

      I wouldn’t say it’s the worse kind of heel. That personna works well for guys like Miz & Edge. But I agree, it’s a terrible fit for Orton

      • The Breaker

        I’m just not a fan of making guys weak as a part of their character and at the same time selling them as a top performer.

  • JJ

    A unification that has been years in the making, lets get it done and bring prestige back to the secondary titles.

  • Justin Mayo

    Was about to say at least we’re not starting with Triple H…Open mouth, Insert Foot

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, is Orton turning back face?

  • K!ng

    Can we get a matcg instead of a promo

    • K!ng

      Match

  • Xavier

    These are the worse kinds of fans

    • Jesse Sherwood

      NY fans are the crazy ones…

      • Xavier

        It’s one thing to get involved but to try and hijack it is just annoying. It’s beyond old at this point. Chicago fans are 10x better

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Agreed, but I love Chicago crowds because they are loud all of the time.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I do like those crowds, mostly because I live in Chicago and have gone to two WWE events. Still, they’re pretty smarky.

          • Xavier

            But atleast they don’t try to hijack the show though

    • Alex Gallardo

      I agree, too smarky for me.

      • Xavier

        They’re the type of fans who had their moms drive them to the arena

        • Alex Gallardo

          LOL. I can’t stand them on the Internet and during wrestling. I’m just glad I have headphones.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Daniel Bryan chants!

    • The Breaker

      I’ll bet Vince is just putting his hands over his ears.

  • Cubed56

    im hoping my wish comes true, orton turning on the authority, and punting steph in the dome.

  • Danny Philippi

    This is the reason the Islanders are moving to Brooklyn next season.

  • K!ng

    Until roman reigns spears him

  • JJ

    So is the unification going to be at TLC or at RR? Each get one last title defense before unification sounds better to me..helps build their strength and gives a premiere match at RR.

    • Alex Gallardo

      From what I read it looks like they plan on doing it at WM XXX. They’re taking this time to build both of them up.

      • JJ

        wow that’s way too long of a build for it.

        • Alex Gallardo

          The WHC has lost a lot of prestige since the brands came back together. It will take them time and I do want to see the titles combine.

          • JJ

            Guess it’s at TLC. Still would have preferred it at RR though.

    • K!ng

      Or a triple threat winner take all match with the 2 champs and royal rumble winner

      • JJ

        No.

  • Cubed56

    talk about contradictory! cena says listen to these fans. ummm…hey john that would mean you wouldn’t be champ and nowhere near a main event picture.

    • Xavier

      According to who? The IWC who makes up a very small portion of wrestling fans?

      • Cubed56

        well lets see, every arena he goes to, the boos are getting louder and louder, for Christ sake the guy was split 50-50 in his hometown. I would say more then just the iwc is getting sick of the same old crap.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And there is the official Unification challenge!

    • Alex Gallardo

      About time.

  • The Breaker

    The fans are chanting for Daniel Bryan, and Cena tries to spin it to get them on his side. It’s annoying, but I give him credit for that.

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

    Sometimes I forget how good Cena really is

  • Scottyo614

    WWE needs to go with Daniel Bryan. The fans are voicing and WWE isn’t listening

  • The Breaker

    It’s gonna be at TLC? Really?! This match really shouldn’t have a gimmick.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And it will be at TLC! YES! I will be buying it just for that one match!

  • BrooksOglesby

    Uuuuuuuuugh. Cena/Orton is just not the Rock/Austin y’all want it to be. I can’t believe it, but I’m still just as tired of this matchup as I was in 2009.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I like heel Orton but this sets up yet another boring babyface Cena title run.

      • BrooksOglesby

        Heel Orton sounds like he just got a script and he’s reading it for the first time in an angry voice. But even that is an improvement from…face………..Orton…..

        He works better as a heel, absolutely, and this is my smarkiness shining through, but it really, really seems like WWE is out of touch here. I’m finding it hard to believe that this is all filler for Bryan winning the title at Mania. There’s lots of time for things to change, but I’m a lot less optimistic about WWE than I was earlier this year.

        • Alex Gallardo

          It seems like they have put Byran in the mid card from now on. I don’t see them building this back up again with Bryan being an underdog.

    • thepowerserge

      Hell, it sure isn’t Hogan v Warrior as they’re trying to imply with the tagline of “epic.” I mean, it’s only been a dozen years since Y2J became the first undisputed champion. And it took ab out 40 years to get to that point. This supposedly epic match just doesn’t have the grand scale of Vengeance 2001. The theme of the night was truly grand: 4 men, 3 matches, 2 titles, 1 Undisputed Champion. This “epic” match might as well be an epic fail. The proof that Creative has no clue as to what the fans want is that this match SHOULD involve Brya, Punk and/or Ziggler. Other wise, how the hell do you want to see something new if you keep giving the same old crap.

  • Danny Philippi

    WrestleMania X had HBK and Razor.
    TLC 2013 has this bout.

  • Cubed56

    no at tlc!!!! jesus Christ creative is getting dumber everyday

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’m glad that they’re combining the titles, it makes sense to only have one title after the brand split.

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

    That’s a must see match!

    • JJ

      We did see it, lots of ’08-’10..

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

        If you don’t see the difference then there’s nothing I can say.

        • JJ

          The gimmick of TLC with unification isn’t bite worthy..it’s the same thing just giving them some “prestige” with titles they’ve both overly won and lost

  • Xavier

    Another great six man tag match coming up NEXT

  • The Breaker

    It should be at the Rumble. Something like this needs an actual build, not three weeks! And it’s a TLC Match? So there’s guaranteed to be lots of shenanigans. *sigh*

    • Noelz

      I feel like it’s about the same build the 01 unification had except it was feeding off existing rivalries instead of building a new one so it seemed to have more build up

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Orton is looking at his title and kissing it goodbye!

  • Justin Mayo

    So…a match that would make a Wrestlemania classic…is being held at TLC in 3 weeks?…makes sense -sarcasm-

    • K!ng

      Hey ur not paying the wrestlemania price

  • Avalanchian

    So it looks to be coming true. 2 titles become 1.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      2 titles enter, one Champ leaves!

  • DIxon

    ok so reigns turn on the shield?

  • Danny Philippi

    In the words of Cris Carter, “Triple H, C’MON MAN”

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The question here is will this Unification count as a separate reign in the record books if Cena wins? If so, it will put him at #15.

    • Danny Philippi

      If WWE has its way, Ric Flair would be erased from WWE record books since he was a WCW star that tried to take down WWE in the 1980s

  • Xavier

    Anyone else think it’s time for gimmick PPVs to go?

    • Cubed56

      absolutely, except the elimination chamber.

      • Xavier

        I’m actually not feeling Elimination Chamber anymore, not the match itself but the PPV. I kind of think it takes away from the Mania build and de-values The Rumble

        • Cubed56

          agreed with that, however I like the ppv concept, but I do agree it should not be between the rumble and wm, it should be where tlc is right now

          • Xavier

            Agreed

    • Alex Gallardo

      Big gimmick matches should be saved up for big feuds. Not for every month.

    • JJ

      RR, Elimination chamber, and MITB are the key mark ones they should keep, everything else they could find a way to get rid of it. Although I’ve been fond of Night of Champions brings back the nostalgia of the 90′s.

      • Cubed56

        mitb can go now that they are unifying the titles, they can just bring the mitb match back to wm only

        • JJ

          No they could have one for the main world title, and bring back the classics of 3 tag teams competing and whichever gets, would have a title shot, with the twist that they can pick any partners so sets up future storylines for team splits.

          • Cubed56

            its a good idea, but I really think it should go. 10-12 years ago, awesome idea, but the tag division is in such shambles now it would be better to eliminate all together imo

      • Xavier

        I prefer if there was only one MITB match. I liked it better at Mania. That amtch gives more opportunities for younger talent to get on the Mania card.

  • The Breaker

    Does Orton even have the smallest shred of credibility to beat Cena?

    • Xavier

      Not anymore, he did in 09 though. That’s why that feud worked so well.

      • The Breaker

        True. And now there are so many younger guys that can give him a serious run for his money (not literally, few could touch him in that regard).

  • The Breaker

    This hotshot booking is really irritating.

  • JJ

    Roman Reigns was one of the top highlights of last night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Reigns was the only saving grace of last night.

      • Alex Gallardo

        He’s the future of the WWE. I just hope he doesn’t get misused like Matt Morgan in TNA.

        • Nick K

          It’s funny watching all of you build him up cause when you all realize like have how limited he is you’re all gonna tear him back down again. His spear is impressive but that’s all he has. Now he was plenty of time to improve and hopefully he does i honestly have nothing against him as a performer but still, ah screw it i’ll just shut up until everyone catches up.

      • JJ

        LOL Reigns and the Wyatt match were the only things I enjoyed of the whole ppv, and mostly all because of the storylines to come.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    SHIELD! After Reigns’ performance last night, eliminating 4 of the 5 men on the other team, he is easily turning into the top prospect of the 3!

    • The Breaker

      He’s got limitless potential.

    • Avalanchian

      I predicted he would be the one. He has the look Vince loves. I think Ambrose looks like he has an itch for drugs. And Rollins just looks small even though he has skill.

    • Xavier

      Don’t give Reigns too much props, Nick K will direct an angry post at you lol

      • Jesse Sherwood

        PM.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rey looked like he was broken in half after taking a spear from Reigns last night! I bet he is sore!

    • The Breaker

      It was one heck on a “welcome back”!

  • Cef Fracker

    And WWE is now unwatchable…. I would rather watch Total Divas and Diva matches all night than have heard the Title unification

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I admit I am not a fan of the idea, but the match is sure to be incredible. But at this point, WWE needs to trim the roster and focus more on the talent. The first step is unification.

  • Scottyo614

    I hope when Reigns breaks away he DOESNT feud with any of the other two shield members to keep all 3 strong

    • Alex Gallardo

      I would love to see Reigns in the main event, and Dean and Seth in the mid card scene.

      • Scottyo614

        Ambrose is a main event heel. When he breaks from the shield and can be his character it will be epic.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I wouldn’t agree with that too much, but I won’t got into that.

          • Cubed56

            id like to hear why you don’t think so

          • Alex Gallardo

            It’s not really the conversation I would want to go into. I’m not in the mood for a big debate or discussion.

          • Cubed56

            i don’t want to debate, your just the first person ive ever heard disagree with that statement, was just wondering why

          • Alex Gallardo

            Well, Dean just doesn’t really stand out to me and I’m not a big fan of him. There’s nothing wrong with him being in the midcard because that division can be taken seriously if booked right.

          • Cubed56

            fair enough, I tend to agree he hasn’t really overwhelmed me since his debut, but I feel he is actually one that is better by himself then in a team

  • http://Johnaguilera.prosite.com/ John Aguilera

    I just received my WrestleMania tickets in the mail today! Who else is going?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Lucky! I still have to try to go to WM at least once in my life.

      • BlazeKing

        I went to the one that just passed. My life was not complete until I went to one!

    • BrooksOglesby

      See ya there! Here’s to hoping the booking gets better on the Road to WrestleMania.

      • http://Johnaguilera.prosite.com/ John Aguilera

        I can’t wait! I would really like to meet up with wrestling fans from this site and party that weekend. I’m from Wisconsin and it’s going to be my 1st WrestleMania experience.

        • Cubed56

          yo man where in Wisconsin you from

          • http://Johnaguilera.prosite.com/ John Aguilera

            Madison, and you?

          • Cubed56

            not this year, i was last there when it was in Detroit. it didn’t work out this yeat maybe next year again

      • Alex Gallardo

        Got an extra ticket?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Evening everyone and deepest apologies I had some technical issues on my end but I am here. I heard the news of the the Cena vs Orton TLC Match and I must say I a bit perplexed as to the creative direction that the ppv is taking

  • BrooksOglesby

    I really hope Reigns stays in a tag team for awhile. I think the guy gets more and more impressive every match, but I’m afraid he won’t translate as well in singles competition. He is amazing as a guy that comes in and murders everyone at the end of a match, but I don’t know how well he could carry a lengthy match on his own. Not to say he can’t, but he really shines in the tag division right now.

    • Alex Gallardo

      WWE needs to give him time to sharpen up his skill and learn and grow, but he still has great promise.

      • BrooksOglesby

        Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking. No need to rush his rise or overexpose him. I’m having a lot of fun watching him in The Shield, though. Never thought I’d be paying so much attention when he’s tagged in.

        • Alex Gallardo

          At the end of the day it’s best they don’t mess this unlike TNA with Matt Morgan.

  • Danny Philippi

    It is kind of ironic that the member of the Shield that was once greener than a lizard is now the new breakout star of WWE.

    • Xavier

      I kind of figured that would happen. I remember when Ted Jr was suppose to be the star coming out of Legacy, then Rhodes surpassed him. When Morrison & Miz tagged together it was Miz who surpassed him and became a Mania headliner. It seems to happen that way lately

  • K!ng

    Anyone else think orton will win tlc so the wwe championship looks stronger then the world heavyweight title

  • Danny Philippi

    Oh gosh. Rachael Ray commercials during WWE programming. WWEPG is strange for me.

  • Danny Philippi

    Quick question: Who wins tonight? Ryback, Kofi Kingston, or the Redskins?

  • Xavier

    Reigns’ spear is just sick. Most well protected move in the WWE right now

  • The Breaker

    I love Reigns hitting the spear on Mysterio. It’s great whenever he does it, but the impact of getting it on a smaller guy looks awesome.

  • JJ

    Just don’t feel dean ambrose’s finisher.

  • Xavier

    Anyone else think Strahan showing up on RAW tonight is building up something for Mania?

  • K!ng

    Reigns future wwe champion

    • Alex Gallardo

      Damn right.

  • The Breaker

    I’m relieved that it doesn’t seem like The Shield is on the path to breaking up for the time being. This group has a lot more mileage than most.

  • Danny Philippi

    Is it ironic the WWE would schedule Strahan to come out before opening kickoff of MNF?

  • Cubed56

    feels kind of like the shield is being built as completely unstoppable again

  • Justin Mayo

    um…anyone wanna explain to me those 3 stipulations, and why i should care?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ok, so what is the underlying purpose for Strahan to be on Raw? Charity or Show Promotional work?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Most likely he’s there to promote something. It’s a waste of time at the end of the day.

    • BlazeKing

      Because Kevin Dunn said so…. And it makes me furious!!!

    • Xavier

      Mania build

    • The Breaker

      They want the”Live! With Kelly and Michael” mega-fans to tune in. It’s a huge untapped fanbase!

  • Xavier

    That foot locker commercial is greatness x billion lol

    • Alex Gallardo

      I don’t really pay attention to the commercials, unless there’s really hot guys or WWE actually calls one of their toys a Wrecking Brawl.

  • Danny Philippi

    The best part of Black Friday is …… give me a second. I work in retail.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Lol. I feel for you. Luckily, I got all of my shopping done early.

  • JJ

    So after seeing ryback and henry, which i’m guessing is the rivalry wwe was hoping on. What do you think they will do with henry? As that clearly failed fans were chanting boring for most of the match.

  • Danny Philippi

    MiZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Tv.

  • Xavier

    I have a feeling this Miz/Strahan segment could be building up to something at Mania. Just a vibe I’m getting.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Miz is still getting a pop. After last night, I have to question if they are really turning him or if Kofi is finally going to the dark side.

  • The Breaker

    I like how The Miz turning heel needs no explanation. It’s just quietly acknowledged that he’s always been an arrogant jerk.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, is that Titus?!

    • The Breaker

      It is!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Alright! Letting Titus get some screen time with his humorous side!

        • The Breaker

          I love Pancake Patterson!

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’m just going to grab some chips and Pepsi, listen to some Miley and pretend this didn’t happen.

  • The Breaker

    So is Titus heel now?

    • BlazeKing

      A wtf moment indeed. Let’s see how this plays out…

  • JJ

    can titus get a real gimmick, I know hes in his 30s too.

  • Scottyo614

    What in the heck is going on with mid card booking?

  • Xavier

    Wooooooooooooooooo, great line by The Miz. Love it!

    • Danny Philippi

      Jets have a better chance at getting a playoff spot. BAKA!

    • Justin Mayo

      HUSH! at least we have the Pat’s number anytime :-P

      • Xavier

        Can’t argue that. I hate the Pats

        • Justin Mayo

          Brady sacks HIMSELF thinking about Tuck heading his way

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Miz just broke Kafabe, so I’m out!

    • Alex Gallardo

      What did he do?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Blatantly talked about being a heel.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Blatantly talked about being a heel.

        • The Breaker

          I didn’t see it that way.

        • Cubed56

          I thought it was great

        • Xavier

          I loved it

  • Cubed56

    miz is so much better as a heel

  • http://Johnaguilera.prosite.com/ John Aguilera

    Hoora Hoora Hoora – Titus

  • The Breaker

    The PTPs are back to being heel, it seems?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Not Daren most likely.

      • The Breaker

        Yeah I wouldn’t think so. Are they going to push Darren on his own now?

        • Alex Gallardo

          Possibly, but I’m not sure. Let’s just hope he doesn’t disgrace the gay community with an awful gimmick like Orlando Jordon.

          • Cubed56

            if you don’t mind me asking how did Orlando disgrace the gay community? he was actually playing off his real life self.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Did you see his TNA gimmick?

          • Cubed56

            i did not actually. i assume it took place there, if they did make him do that, that’s disgraceful on tna’s part

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It was awful. Every stereotype in the book, mixed with a ton of nasty weird.

          • Cubed56

            that’s a damn shame and pathetic on tna’s part

  • K!ng

    Lt vs strahan at mania

  • Luke Trewarne

    I think at TLC theyll each grab a title at the same time, prolonging the feud

  • Luke Trewarne

    I think at TLC theyll each grab a title at the same time, prolonging the feud

    • Alex

      I hope you’re wrong but I really do see that happening, also possibly Cena grabbing the WWE Championship & Orton grabbing the World Heavyweight Championship.

      • Luke Trewarne

        Yep exactly what I’m thinking too, I don’t want a unification lol.

  • The Breaker

    “Double Team Tag Team”…. ugh.

    • Xavier

      Lol I don’t know either

  • Scottyo614

    Strahan has better mic skills that 90% of the roster and personality…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ok, so Strahan is actually worse than I thought on the mic. How does he have a daytime TV show?

    • The Breaker

      Clearly he doesn’t watch WWE, and it’s making him uncomfortable.

      • Scottyo614

        He’s got personality though. Terms are lacking, but he’s got a charisma

    • Xavier

      Being in a studio is different then talking in front of 10,000-15,000 people

  • JJ

    sounds like a lame tag team match..

  • Xavier

    This is so bad it’s great LMAO

    • The Breaker

      I agree with the first four words of that.

    • http://Johnaguilera.prosite.com/ John Aguilera

      Lol

    • BlazeKing

      Hey, that’s the tagline for $5 Wrestling!!!

      • Xavier

    And when he finally lets loose and not on script, he sounds decent.

    I had a feeling that was going to happen.

      Hayden! Good to see you.

        glad to be here finally have some free time before thanksgiving break to catch up on some Raw. BOY have i missed a lot!!!!

  • JJ

    That’s easily one of the weirdest I’ve seen a heel act..how don’t they attack Strahan?

  • Stephen Cash

    I’m confused…

  • Ashley

    What a weird segment

  • BlazeKing

    And all three break kayfabe… Is this Vince’s idea of a joke on himself?!?!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That was the perfect way to kill a crowd, that’s for sure.

  • Xavier

    Okay. I’m gonna pretend like this didn’t happen……..moving on. Who ya’ll got in the handicap match tonight?

    • JJ

          Nah, this sledge works just as well…

    ok…now something about moderating comments? did disqus mess up again?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      PM.

  • Cubed56

    does anyone else predict another screwy fininsh at tlc, since that’s the only endings they can have recently, and the titles end up vacant until RR or WM

    • Xavier

      Screwy finish in wrestling? Nah never lol

      • Cubed56

        exactly, you would never see something like that coming would you?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    What an exciting main event for tonight. I am so thrilled. Not

  • The Breaker

    Everyone, be warned that the Miz TV segment might not be the worst thing we see tonight. There’s still the possibility of a Diva’s tag team match and a surprise appearance from the Gobbledy Gooker.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Please… NO!

    • BlazeKing

      Adding Gobbledy Gooker in there just made me chuckle beyond belief. Still unbelievable that Maryse donned the outfit once!

      • The Breaker

        I forgot about that!

    • Justin Mayo

      WHY??? keep your predictions to yourself, maybe then they won’t come true :(

  • Xavier

    Vince/WWE creative is tapped. 3 hours of RAW, 2 hours of Smackdown, 3 hours of NXT, Main Event & Superstars is a lot to ask of. It’s just too much and not to mention the 15-16 PPVs we get on top of that

  • Danny Philippi

    Team Heavy Lifting vs. Team Vaccum Suckers. LOL

    That’s a big as* tag team

      literally or figuratively? :-P

    Being that both titles are hanging couldnt cena n orton grab one belt each n have a draw?

  • Scottyo614

    Isn’t Axel still a Heyman guy or did I miss that?

  • The Breaker

    Is Ryback and Axel possibly the most “blah” tag team to ever exist?

    • Xavier

      The Beverley Brothers or Techno Team 2000 win that honor

      • The Breaker

        What about The Basham Brothers?

        • Xavier

          They had Shaniqua as their manager at one point so i’d say no, I enjoyed drilling over her in her dominatrix attire

          • Justin Mayo

            drilling? lmao

          • Xavier

            My bad, drooling lol

          • Justin Mayo

            nope, too late to save face on that one haha

          • Xavier

            LOL

  • Xavier

    Would this be considered a double team tag team match?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Lol!

    • BlazeKing

      Well, Mark is as big as three people…

  • JJ

    So with the constant berating of JBL on cole is there any hope cole will finally be moved off commentary?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Personally, I’d hope for JBL. He’s been really hard to listen to the last few months.

      • JJ

        JBL to me has just been trying to feed off what’s given to him, and he’s not afraid to call cole out for stupid commentary. I noticed for most of last night it was immense bashing. I’d like to see Byron or someone finally get their call up.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          If anyone was to be called up, I’d hope for A-Ry. His style is like a fantastic version of Striker.

          • JJ

            I like A-ry more, but I feel Byron has paid his dues a lot, and he seems so well informed, not to mention his professional voice. I’d like A-ry on smackdown more.

  • K!ng

    Rematch of a big blunder

  • The Breaker

    So it’s a SS Diva’s rematch… there’s one of my predictions coming true….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, they didn’t torture us enough with that match last night?!

    • The Breaker

      They want to show off their abomination to the entire world!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Oh dear god no. Wasn’t once enough?

  • BlazeKing

    I did say that Mark should be mentoring Big E earlier this year and it looks like WWE brass was thinking the same thing as well.

  • Danny Philippi

    If there were a rematch from last night tonight, this would not be the one.

  • Cubed56

    i had the privilege to see big e play football at iowa university against Wisconsin, and i would never wish injury anyone, but the knee injury he suffered im happy about, only for the fact that im enjoying him in wwe a hell of a lot more then i would’ve had he gone to the nfl, not too mention his career will be much more prosperous in wwe

  • Nick K

    Surprised how dead the crowd was for langston.

    • Xavier

      It’s been a pretty bad RAW so far

      • Nick K

        Mark Henry got a good pop but this crowd is awful. Im just one guy i can’t save it. At least there excited for Bryan. So many yes signs.

        • Xavier

          Yo, are you and Nick K the same person? You 1st showed by as Nick K in my Disqus but now it’s showing up as K!ng. Strange

  • BlazeKing

    For the love of god don’t let Eva in the ring. It’s a crying shame that JoJo outperformed her even though they’re both greener than California sticky!

    • Cubed56

      thats awfully damn green

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Will last night/tonight go down as the worst Divas match/es in history?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It is pretty close.

      • Ashley

        I missed it, why was it so bad?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Horrid ring work and no time. All of the eliminations happened in less than 12 minutes.

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      I do hope Team True Divas picks up the win

      • Jesse Sherwood

        But then that splits the series! We’d end up with a rubber match.

  • Stephen Cash

    This raw is horrible. Hate the unification idea… Now we will only see Cena, Orton, Sheamus, ADR in the main title scene… I’m praying for some twist…

    • Cubed56

      i don’t mind the idea, but why at tlc in 3 weeks? build it up to WM or at least the rumble. I also don’t think cena and orton are the right guys for the angle.

      • Stephen Cash

        I like both Cena and Orton, but this is just going to limit opportunities for people like Sandow, Rhodes, and Ziggler… We won’t see them as champ until they separate again.

        • Cubed56

          that may be true, but id rather one title, and bring back the prestige and good feuds for the secondary titles, it will also make the wwe title that much more important making everyone step their games up and title changes that much better

  • Hayden Tyler

    I personally do not want the title unification.

  • Justin Mayo

    back in a bit guys, time to do dishes

    • Danny Philippi

      Par for the course.

  • The Breaker

    So the way I see it is that Cena is greedy and wants all the gold to himself!

  • K!ng

    Bathroom time

  • The Breaker

    The King has very low standards when it comes to women’s wrestling.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the crowd has already turned on it.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Save us Paige,Emma, Bayley and Sasha

    • BlazeKing

      They’re safe right where they’re at for now. I don’t want them to get Rosa’d (repacked like all hell).

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Oh thats a fair point there

  • The Breaker

    DARN IT, COME BACK BLACKOUT SCREEN!!!

  • JJ

    Well guess I better let the dog out since I got time to waste.

  • Danny Philippi

    SOme of the crowd is transplated from the post-WrestleMania crowd and the rest is transplated from a teachers convention.

  • Xavier

    JBL owning Cole AGAIN

  • Hayden Tyler

    I did not see that super kick coming.

    • BlazeKing

      Dat Kick!

  • The Breaker

    The fact that Cole got the call wrong about Natalya being the Sole Survivor just shows that even he didn’t care about following the match.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m willing to bet they were playing on their phones all through the match!

  • The Breaker

    Tagging in JoJo to eliminate Tamina was obviously a form of embarrassment.

  • The Breaker

    Her foot was under the ropes and the ref counted three!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And now I have lost all interest. Eva just got a pin.

    • BlazeKing

      I’m picking brain matter off my computer screen bro

  • Danny Philippi

    Eva pins Alicia. “Head explodes”

  • Xavier

    Fans seem to into AJ/Nattie atleast

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the crowd goes wild for AJ!

  • Cubed56

    ill tell you what, i wouldn’t mind rolling around like that with tamina snuka

  • The Breaker

    How many Divas have gotten pinned via roll-up?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Too many school girls…

      • The Breaker

        I guess with the girls in the ring, you have to stick to the simplest moves.

  • Cubed56

    summer rae goes roman reigns here?

    • Cubed56

      haha, or not, how could i be so stupid

  • Xavier

    SMH “SIGH”

  • Cubed56

    classic king comment!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “She’s got her in the Rack! That’s the best Rack I’ve ever seen!” LOL King!

  • The Breaker

    Nikki with the Torture Rack? Whose idea was it for her to do that?

  • Xavier

    I can usually find the good in anything WWE related but this RAW has been a complete train wreck so far.

    • Danny Philippi

      A-Train Tripling On Oily Tracks.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    God tonight was worse

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And we thought it couldn’t get any worse!

  • Stephen Cash

    Why are we still watching this? Lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ziggler vs. Sandow, after last week, should easily be MOTN!

  • The Breaker

    Sandow and Ziggler… save this show, please!

  • JJ

    The best and the beard can’t even save this show..

  • BrooksOglesby

    If you’re a fan of the NXT Divas, don’t wish for them to be called up.

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      I totally agree with that. Let Paige, Emma, Bayley and Sasha shine on NXT

    • The Breaker

      I see what you’re saying, but I want them to bring this division back to being something watchable.

      • BrooksOglesby

        I know, I do too. I’m just not optimistic. The Divas can’t change anything if the powers that be don’t change how they’re presented. Divas like Emma or Bayley won’t get over if they only compete for 30 seconds in tag matches. I hope that when they’re called up, they’re given time to become compelling characters, but I don’t expect that they’ll do that, if the current state of the division is any indication.

        • The Breaker

          Agreed, there is a flawed philosophy in WWE when it comes to booking Divas.

  • Ashley

    I am not sure why these ladies even try since everyone is just going to crap all over it before it even starts.

    • Stephen Cash

      Are you defending that match?

      • Ashley

        I am not “defending” it but jeez, you all hate it, ok! You all wonder why Divas are treated the way they are, here is your answer. Cuz that is how the fans treat ‘em

        • Xavier

          New York crowds have become one of the worse crowds in wrestling and that’s sad for me too say because at one point they were great.

          • Cubed56

            in their defense thay have the right to be upset with this terrible show tonight

          • Xavier

            True. Tonight has been bad but I’ve noticed this is starting to become a trend for New York crowds no matter how good or bad a show may be.

          • Cubed56

            that is true

        • Stephen Cash

          Fans wouldn’t treat them poorly if they belonged in the business… If you want to work for a wrestling company learn to wrestle

          • Ashley

            Like this isn’t how the division has been for, I don’t know, EVER?! They got lucky with a some incredible women, but the fans still treated them like bathroom breaks. SO here we go. Maybe if the fans didn’t respond more to the Bra and Panty matches and not chant “We want puppies” during serious matches, you would have a different outcome.

    • JJ

      Try? If some of them were actually trying they’d be getting down the development program working on their skills instead of just getting by with their good looks. This program could work if they used the right women and dropped all the pom pom girls.

      • Ashley

        As AJ wasn’t trying?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          And she was one of the few. AJ, Nattie, and the Bellas were the only quality workers there.

        • Stephen Cash

          Fans love AJ and Nattie . We don’t like the others because they shouldn’t be here

        • JJ

          AJ, Natalya, and Tamina are the few worth while. Then you have Jojo, Eva, Aksana, Rosa, the bellas (who are trying to get better I guess), and the funkadactyls where Naomi who can actually go is used awful.

          • Xavier

            To tell you the truth, I think AJ is overrated as well. She couldn’t hold a candle to Trish, Lita, Victoria, Jazz, Gail Kim, Molly Holly or Jacqueline

          • Cubed56

            i see why you are saying that, but i disagree i think aj would be even better then she is if she would have ladies like the ones you mentioned to work with

          • Xavier

            That’s possible. I loved her as the crazy chick but I haven’t been blown away by her in the ring. She’s not bad by any means but I don’t think she’s as good as everyone else think she is. Nattie & Tamina however are legit

          • Cubed56

            i agree with that, tamina and nattie would be awesome with trish lita and the others, i think aj would hold her own and like i said look better with them, she would my no mean be the best

          • Jesse Sherwood

            When Tamina isn’t botching like a hot mess, I agree with her, as she has that unique look to get her over.

          • Ashley

            I agree totally with you, but she is the only one most get behind here, so I used her for my point.

          • JJ

            I agree lots today couldn’t compare, that’s why it’s even more sad we’re forced to settle with these awful workers when there are lots of women out there who can go. But the E won’t go after them because they don’t all look like supermodels. E could bring lots of greats from overseas.

          • Xavier

            Kharma

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      Both Matches (Last Night and Tonight’s) show exactly how little the cretins of creative are focusing on the Division and are instead focusing more on Total Divas

    • Jesse Sherwood

      After last night, there was no way that was going to be good. Too many girls and too many that can’t work. Fox, Cameron, Eva, Aksana, Rosa, Summer Rae amongst the worst!

      • Ashley

        All who were quickly eliminated. Not like they got 15 minutes all to themselves.

  • Stephen Cash

    Save us Ziggler!!!

  • K!ng

    Yeah sad how divas like nattie n tamina are booked

    • Stephen Cash

      Sad about Natayla. Tamina is botchamania

  • BlazeKing

    JBL just read my mind. There’s nothing hardcore about the Hamptons!!!

  • Scooter

    Raw is super weak tonight! To quote my wife “this episode is really sucking it up.”

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF update: 49ers 7-0. Kaepernick to Boldin 19 yd touchdown connection with 2:54 left in the first quarter.

  • Danny Philippi

    Slammy Award time. Yes! Yes!

  • BlazeKing

    There’s NOTHING hardcore about the Hamptons!!!!

    • BlazeKing

      JBL with the classic Mean Street Posse quip!

  • Danny Philippi

    Ziggler kissing up to the crowd. I have seen mostly everything.

  • savokes

    What’s worse…paying $45+ for Survivor Series, or watching this FREE Raw?

    • Xavier

      You actually paid $45? I got a the $5 stream

      • savokes

        Haha, nope, I watch it free from some site based out of some obscure country in Europe…I was just saying, for those that did pay for it haha

      • Ashley

        $5 stream! Thats what I need to do

  • Cubed56

    wow sandow is incredibly strong, he bent that iron in half by merely swinging it half heartedly

  • BlazeKing

    Dolph with the Ryder shirt, lol.

  • The Breaker

    Why is Ziggler wearing a Zack Ryder shirt?

    • BlazeKing

      Giving props. Without that show, he wouldn’t have gotten to host his own.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Showing support for his road wife too. Plus the cheap pop!

        • BlazeKing

          That too!

        • The Breaker

          It’s a nice thing to do, but he can’t do anything to get Ryder on TV again.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yeah, I have the feeling we will see Ryder released in the next year and a half.

          • The Breaker

            I wish Ryder got a fairer shake, but that’s the business.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the club Sandow had was gimmicked so bad it messed up before he swung it!

  • Danny Philippi

    I guess they got the sporting goods from Steph’s garage.

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF update: 49ers 10-0. Phil Dawson 29 yd field goal with 12:09 to go till halftime.

  • Danny Philippi

    It is bad that I will remember the commenhating than the action in the ring from tonight’s Raw so far tomorrow morning.

  • Nostaljack

    Hey, everyone. Sorry for being so late. Just got “Raw” on in time to see a fire extinguisher to the face. Cool!…iiterally!

    • Cubed56

      believe it or not it actually burns rather then cools

      • Nostaljack

        LOL!

  • Xavier

    Solid match here. Ziggler/Sandow have good chemistry

  • Nostaljack

    Randy chants?

    • savokes

      Looks like there’s a guy in the crowd dressed up as Savage

      • Nostaljack

        As soon as I typed it, I caught site of him.

  • Xavier

    Here go again with these lame a** fans. This is exactly what Ashley was talking about

    • BrooksOglesby

      I didn’t think chants could get worse than “What?” but here we are. “Randy Savage” chants are stupid for so many reasons.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Maybe it is time to restrict letting fans in that are in costumes. If it is becoming such an issue, they need to figure out some way to curb it.

      • BlazeKing

        They’re wannabes trying to jump aboard the bandwagon. They just chant things but don’t understand *why* they’re chanted.

        • BrooksOglesby

          One hand, I don’t like telling paying fans how to act, but chants meant to put the crowd over are a detriment to the show. Chanting for people not competing was a nice novelty the first time, as it was a particularly boring match. But as something that’s becoming the norm, it’s disrespectful to two guys that are working hard to entertain. Not to mention, that’s not how you honor a guy like Savage.

    • Nick K

      I had a good time making fun of the fools doing the husky harris chants. Also security took the guy dressed like Randy Savage out of the event for no reason at all but i guess thats america nowadays. These cowards put on a uniform and think they’re someone.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Great match here, but the fans are starting to turn on it. Is there anything that can appease them, or should we write the crowd off tonight?

    • The Breaker

      WWE did this to themselves.

    • Xavier

      Nope they’re idiots.

    • JJ

      Takes more then 1 match to win the fans, and this while ok, wasn’t as good as the rest of the show was awful. They will pop for the best and the beard.

  • Cubed56

    taking bets right now on what crappy gimmick they give sandow and ziggler next week for their rubber match

    • BlazeKing

      Pillow fight.

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      Its going to be based on whatever city/state Raw is emanating from

      • Cubed56

        well its in Oklahoma city next week. perhaps something involving bull riding?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Bullrope Match!

          • Cubed56

            that would be cool

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Reverse Tuxedo Match!

      • Cubed56

        interesting

  • The Breaker

    Sandow evened the score! Guess we’ll need a rubber match!

  • Stephen Cash

    “Zolph Giggler” lol at King.

  • Tim

    Keep the hardcore coming for a full revival wwe. I’d love to see the hardcore 24/7 title story again.

  • The Breaker

    Maybe Miz’s facial expressions work better in that type of comedy movie than they do in the ring.

    • Stephen Cash

      That movie looked horrible.

  • Xavier

    If WWE never did a show in New York ever again I’d be fine with it. Worse crowds in wrestling.

    • K!ng

      Not all of us are bad then again I live upstate.

    • Nick K

      For every smart thing you say you tend to follow up with something stupid.

      • Xavier

        For every stupid thing you said, you follow it up with another stupid thing to say.

        • Nick K

          Well considering how full of crap you are ill take that as a compliment.

          • Xavier

            You still bitter that Reigns is outshining your boy Tyler Black? How’s life on the Roman Reigns hate train, pretty lonely isn’t it?

          • Xavier

            You still bitter that Roman Reigns is out shining your boy Tyler Black? How’s life on the Roman Reigns hate train, very lonely isn’t it?

  • The Breaker

    Strahan joins the Wyatts?

    • BlazeKing

      That just made me chuckle the way Rowan was just creeping.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      If they did that, we might as well kill the gimmick now.

      • The Breaker

        Harper does the Gator Roll, and Strahan does the Arm Drag!

  • Nostaljack

    This is bizarre.

  • Cubed56

    that was weird! seeing as how the wyatts are cult leading backwoods white hillbillies

  • Danny Philippi

    WTF at what Santino said.

  • The Breaker

    There has been so much more “WTF?” than “YES!” in this show…

  • http://Johnaguilera.prosite.com/ John Aguilera

    What is going on tonight? Just an awkward episode so far.

    • Xavier

      Vince putting on a crappy show for a crappy crowd.

      • http://Johnaguilera.prosite.com/ John Aguilera

        I agree.

  • K!ng

    Did they rehire vince russo tonight

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Worse, they swapped creative staff with TNA!

      • Seth Iser

        TNA creative staff? *In darth vader voice* NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • Xavier

    Weird time slot for this Handicap match. I figured this would start the top of the hour

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m betting they are rearranging the show on the fly to get the crowd back into it.

      • Xavier

        Good point. Wasn’t this suppose to be the main event of the evening

        • Jesse Sherwood

          No, that’s Cena/Show vs. The Robots (ADR/Orton)

          • Xavier

            That’s right, the double team tag team match

          • Stephen Cash

            I don’t get the robots slam… Both ADR and Orton are very talented workers…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m going on their character believability, and the fact ADR seems to do everything Orton does, only more robotic.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m going on their character believability, and the fact ADR seems to do everything Orton does, only more robotic.

  • Cubed56

    maybe we are being too harsh on the ny crowd. i mean they are simply rebelling against a terrible show. isn’t that what we have all wanted, better then what weve been giving recently, they are just expressing there disapproval with the show like all of us here

    • Stephen Cash

      I would agree with you if they didn’t do this everytime they host a show…

    • Xavier

      10,000 fans quietly walking out of the arena would do 10x more in getting Vince’s attention then 10,000 people chanting RANDY SAVAGE.

      • Cubed56

        true, but the mommys and daddys don’t want whiny little children on their hands

        • Xavier

          Lol true

    • Xavier

      Or better yet, not buying tickets at all. If people really want Vince’s attention they gotta hurt him in his wallet

      • Cubed56

        now that would be awesome if fans could get together and really lead a revolt like that, highly doubtful though, but would be epic and definitely get a point across

        • Xavier

          With live streams popping up all over the net it’s possible to revolt against horribly booked PPVs

          • Cubed56

            true, i think a mini one may have taking place last night, at least im hoping the buyrates are not good for a ppv like that last night, hopefully that will wake vince up a bit

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m going to put it here first. I predict 185,000 buys.

          • Cubed56

            really? im thinking lower maybe 150,000

          • Cubed56

            really? im thinking lower maybe 150,000

          • Seth Iser

            167,500. I’ll split the difference.

          • Cubed56

            well played sir

          • Seth Iser

            I had to.

          • Cubed56

            hey as they say the truth always lies somewhere in the middle

          • Seth Iser

            167,500. I’ll split the difference.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            SS normally does north of 200,000, with last year’s doing 212,000. I predict a 15% drop.

          • Cubed56

            thats a fair asessment

  • Nostaljack

    Punk and Bryan have reclaimed what apparently has been a bad crowd.

  • Nostaljack

    Punk is hilarious!

  • The Breaker

    It was awesome how Punk referenced that they all had microphones and Renee wasn’t interviewing them. Classic Punk!

    • BlazeKing

      It was basically a thin veiled jab at the creative crew watching from gorilla position about how they didn’t think the segment through.

      • The Breaker

        And I think he was taking a shot at Creative with the comments about handicap match as well.

        • BlazeKing

          You’re damn right!

  • BrooksOglesby

    Shoutout to the dude with the RIP Asparagus sign. He was my favorite Wonder Dog.

  • Cubed56

    shot at hhh, love it

  • Nostaljack

    Love the shout-outs by Punk! COLT CABANA!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Marty DelRosa!

    • BlazeKing

      *Obligatory $5 Wrestling shout out*

      It’s so bad, it’s great!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sounds like we will get a longer term pairing of Punk and Bryan!

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      That is best for business….. for now

  • K!ng

    Awesome promo by punk

  • Nostaljack

    Anyone else notice Bray’s clearly battery-operated lantern? Are they afraid he’ll hurt himself if they give him actual fire?

    • Cubed56

      insurance risk im guessing, kerosene lanterns are very fragile

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That’s exactly it. ABC extinguishers can not easily put out a kerosene fire either.

        • Cubed56

          hell no, and those fires spread very fast

    • BlazeKing

      They don’t want to have to clean up the oil should the lamp get tossed.

  • savokes

    Seems like Punk knew he had to reinvigorate this crowd…loved it!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That was simply the single best way to take a dead crowd and get them into the show! Plus, referencing all of the Indy guys you know the NY crowd knows was genius by Punk!

    • Seth Iser

      What’s more fun in that case than two guys having fun in the ring since it’s obvious the rest of it hasn’t been overly fun to watch to point?

  • The Breaker

    Punk and Bryan are turning into their own version of DX with the way they play off each other with catchphrases.

  • Nostaljack

    App update: The Wyatt’s arrive. They’re stalking the ring. “Let’s go, Wyatts” chants. “CM Punk”, and “Daniel Bryan” chants too.

  • K!ng

    Db was looking at punk in aww of his intensity love it

  • Stephen Cash

    Punk and Bryan really should start a new DX type stable… That would be awesome… Maybe with a bunch of Indy/roh guys… Like Cesaro.

  • Seth Iser

    Alright, finally some great fun. Now let’s have another fun wrestling match here.

  • Xavier

    Let’s pray the Wyatts win so I don’t have to listen to Danny_Boy complain and claim that Punk & Bryan is burying them lol

    • Cubed56

      lol, agreed

      • Xavier

        Buried is the most overused & most wrongly used term on this site by far

        • Nostaljack

          A-M-E-N.

        • Cubed56

          agreed, i am even guilty of using it in the wrong context myself

    • Nostaljack

      LOL!!

    • BlazeKing

      One does not just simply bury the Wyatts. They’ll dig their way out in no time!!!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    We saw an aggresiver Erick Rowan last night which was interesting. Harper’s powerbomb to Bryan was really sick.

  • Nostaljack

    The crowd is totally in this!

    • Danny Philippi

      According to this crowd, Savage/Stemboat would have main evented WrestleMania 3 instead of Hogan/Andre.

      • Xavier

        Lol

      • Cubed56

        lol. however as far as in ring wrestling product they would be right

  • Nick K

    Daniel Bryan and CM Punk are way more over than anyone else with this crowd including Cena. By a pretty late margin as well.

    • Nick K

      Large margin*

      • Xavier

        This isn’t English class. Let’s lighten up a little

  • Nick K

    Daniel Bryan and CM Punk are way more over than anyone else with this crowd including Cena. By a pretty late margin as well.

  • The Breaker

    YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAHHHH

  • Nostaljack

    “Strahan should take the Wyatt Family on “Love w/ Kelly and Michael” for MAAAAAAKEOVERS!!!!” Funny tweet…LOL!

    • Ashley

      Best tweet they’ve shown

  • Stephen Cash

    I wonder what Rowan and Harper would look like in actual wrestling gear.

  • Stephen Cash

    I wonder what Rowan and Harper would look like in actual wrestling gear.

    • BlazeKing

      Well, Luke Harper (Brody Lee) has *always* looked like that while Eric Rowan has actually worn traditional gear in FCW.

      • Stephen Cash

        Wonder if Brodie lee will wear tights after the break up?

        • BlazeKing

          He’ll shave the beard before that happens!

  • BlazeKing

    Daniel Bryan: Yes! Yes! Yes!
    Luke Harper: YeahYeahYeahYeahYeah!!!!!

  • savokes

    That was a nasty looking bump there…didn’t look like Punk had any safe way to land

  • Seth Iser

    Any spill to the ring even if it’s done safely will always hurt because that mat doesn’t give you a ton of protection. Ouch.

  • Nostaljack

    WWE App Update: Action continues. Punk laying out. Bray yelling at referee as he counts. Bray goes for Punk. Rams his back into the ring apron. Laughs at him. Bray throws him into the ring and slams his chest into the apron. Both in the ring and Bray goes for the pin. Near 3. Bray tags in Harper. Harper knocks Bryan off the apron and starts knee-dropping Punk’s head. Maniacal look on Harper’s face. “Take a shower” chants. LOL! Harper stands on Punk’s hand and tags in Rowan. Rowan knee-drops on Punk’s back.

    • Seth Iser

      Hah. The take a shower chants could really take off. It’s something for a heel to run with.

  • Xavier

    Any chance Luke Harper becomes a bigger star then Bray when this stable breaks up?

    • Nostaljack

      Almost certainly. He’s more charismatic than Rowan to me.

    • BlazeKing

      HHH pushed for him at almost Sheamus levels. Luke is already set.

      • Xavier

        He’s a very good worker

        • Nostaljack

          Kendra and I had a decent debate about the two of them. I think Harper stands out nicely and she thought it was six of one and half a dozen of the other.

        • BlazeKing

          Notice how he does the most work for the family? That’s how good he is!

          • Xavier

            I’ve noticed that myself. He’s the work horse of the group

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Not sure. Harper is great, but Bray has longer legs. Harper’s gimmick is a brainwashed follower.

    • Seth Iser

      He’s definitely got the talent, and he’s surely got self confidence. All he needs is the right timing on a push, and the right break.

    • The Breaker

      If/when he breaks off from Bray, he’ll need a completely new gimmick. So I can’t really say how much success he would have until I see what character he’d use.

  • Justin Mayo

    ok guys i’m back! show of hands, who missed me?

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF update: With two late field goals, the Redskins narrow the deficit. Now only 10-6 in favor of San Francisco at halftime.

  • Xavier

    Good tag match so far

  • K!ng

    I love the wyatts style

  • Cubed56

    a no contest is exactly what these fans didn’t need to feed into their frenzy even more

  • Nostaljack

    Directer screwed that clothesline up! We never saw it!

  • Nostaljack

    Wyatt’s kidnapping Bryan?

    • The Breaker

      Will he come out being corporate like Kane?

  • The Breaker

    Good job on missing the Discus Clothesline, production crew!

    • BlazeKing

      It was almost WCW quality!

  • BlazeKing

    Oh NOOOOOOO!!!!!!

  • Seth Iser

    GORE! GORE! GORE!

  • Xavier

    REIGNS!

  • Nostaljack

    Shield?

  • The Breaker

    REIGNS!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the Wyatt’s take Bryan… And Reigns just made a name for himself!

  • Cubed56

    this just got very intersting

  • Nostaljack

    Um…

  • Xavier

    Reigns is that dude right now

  • BlazeKing

    Damn that felt like a 11:05pm ending!!!

  • Nostaljack

    I think WWE just changed the whole thing.

  • The Breaker

    This is far more interesting than the main event storyline.

  • Justin Mayo

    Shield/Wyatts joining forces more permanently?

  • Xavier

    Punk, Bryan, The Wyatts & The Sheild just performed CPR on RAW and revived it from the dead

    • The Breaker

      Perfectly stated!

    • savokes

      Soooo, then the Teddy Long special for the main event tonight will be the equivalent of starting to choke again, because I don’t see how that will top what just happened

    • Nick K

      And kofi and the miz just killed it again.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And as the Shield pass right by a “Push Ambrose” sign!

    • BlazeKing

      I DVR’ed it back and I bet he clearly saw that sign and it bothered him a little bit. He kept walking to the back and forgot the stage stand they were supposed to take. Reigns had to call him back.

  • Nostaljack

    It feels like WWE is moving very much on the fly right now. I like it!

  • savokes

    Punk bad mouthed HHH in that promo…gets taken out by Reigns and the Shield

    • Nostaljack

      Yep. Punk’s about to get into it with the Authority now.

  • Cubed56

    I kinda feel like this is the start of the wyatt/shield feud. they are working together right now against bryan and punk, punk and bryan recruit some help for a match of wyatts and shield vs punk/bryan and crew, eventually wyatts and shield implode from the inside leading to their wm showdown

    • Xavier

      Hopefully we get that at Survi…..nevermind

      • Cubed56

        lol

  • Nostaljack

    WWE App update: Punk comes to in the ring and ringside physician and refs are there. Commentators recapping what happened. Going over how the Shield just snuck in. Punk asking crowd what happened. Punk just cursed in the app trying to figure out what happened as he walks to the back. His music plays.

  • Xavier

    Chances Reigns wins the Royal Rumble?

    • Cubed56

      would love to see it, but like my comment below, i think that where the internal beef between the shield and wyatts start by them eliminating each other deliberately or accidentally

    • Stephen Cash

      Not yet

    • David F

      Not just yet for Reigns but by the looks of things he will look strong in Rumble. I cant wait to see how he does on his own

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      I don’t think he will win, but I think he may get the most eliminations

      • Xavier

        I could see that as well, maybe have a run like Diesel had in 94 when he was in the Rumble that year

        • Cubed56

          or beat kanes record of 11 eliminations (i think 11) in a single rumble

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    The Main Event is going to flatline Raw after Punk Bryan The Shield and The Wyatts momentarily saved it

  • The Breaker

    It still annoys me that all the Big Show crying, firing, and lawsuit stuff was all to build up to last night’s main event. I’ve heard some people say it’s the worst PPV main event all year in both WWE and TNA.

    • Xavier

      Agreed, all that great build for nothing

  • Nostaljack

    Again?

  • Justin Mayo

    Why do fallout shows seem to have more rematches than story progressions? I’d slam my head into the wall, but I already have drain bamage.

    • Ashley

      Exactly. Why get the PPV when u can watch it for free the next night on Raw?

      • Justin Mayo

        SHHH survivor series was yesterday! we’re wwe fans remember? we’re only supposed to have a 3 hour memory span, hence all the rewinds, rematches, video packages, replays, and cole explaining how to download the wwe app every week!

  • Xavier

    What did you guys make of Kofi slapping Miz last night

    • Stephen Cash

      Heel turn on the way… Maybe tag team with Miz?

      • Alex

        But then Kofi would turn heel on the Miz, who is a heel, to align himself with the Miz as a heel…..

        • Seth Iser

          Russo just saw this and said it was genius.

        • Stephen Cash

          They could cut a promo of how both of them have been under appreciated and blame the fans…

          • Alex

            I suppose but I just don’t see it, heel Kofi could be interesting though, I don’t think he’s even been heel in WWE.

          • BlazeKing

            He was supposed to debut as a heel, but the crowd had other plans for that!

          • Alex

            I actually didn’t know that, I remember his debut but not anything about him intending to be a heel. But I do feel Kofi is a natural face so that’d make sense.

        • BlazeKing

          Let’s go deeper…

    • BlazeKing

      I could not comput. Because of my behavior, I could not Xbox Live with Gold…

    • Nostaljack

      Utterly confusing. I agree with Richard.

    • The Breaker

      They were just trying to inject some animosity into the feud in the hopes that people will begin caring.

  • Stephen Cash

    Just watched the Reigns spear on Punk in slow motion…. It might be the most explosive and best spear ever…

  • Seth Iser

    You hear that? It’s so quiet I can hear Cole thinking to himself ‘How can I squeeze in multiple pronouns in one sentence?’

  • Justin Mayo

    double face slap to start the match? that’s new, i think!

  • Nostaljack

    The crowd has left the building. Yikes…

  • Xavier

    We’re not coming close to 1000 tonight.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Not really. But with a show like tonight, did you really expect it?

      • Xavier

        Nah not at all

    • Danny Philippi

      A reach that we hit 900.

  • Nostaljack

    Kofi is totally engaged in heel-isms. Pick the heel, WWE!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    We want tables chant?

  • Danny Philippi

    Faint Jerry chants. Faint We Want Tables chants. WOW! This ain’t partying like ’99.

  • The Breaker

    The only way they could get the crowd back into this is to have Cesaro come out and swing them both at the same time.

  • Nostaljack

    Similarly ending as last night. Why?

    • Xavier

      Looks like they are about to do something with Kofi

      • Nostaljack

        Cool!

      • Cubed56

        about time

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because WWE knows no one watched!

  • Nostaljack

    MIC!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    FOLEY SHILLING!!!

  • Nostaljack

    I mean…MICK!!!

  • The Breaker

    FOLEY! THE MASTER OF THE CHEAP PLUG!

  • Xavier

    Move over Foley, this is R-Truth’s calling

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Foley is a Shill Overlord!

  • Danny Philippi

    Faces of Foley. 1997 called and it is still awesome.

  • The Breaker

    He’s using his other faces!

  • Nostaljack

    THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      BEST SHOP PROMO EVER!!!!

      • Nostaljack

        YES! YES! YES!

      • Xavier

        I still think R-Truth has him beat

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Eh, maybe for the fact Truth was a bit cleaner, but Foley brought the boom!

        • Cubed56

          i agree however r truth seemed to have the advantage of being hopped up on coke in his promo

          • Xavier

            LMFAO

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Or he smoked some Little Jimmy…

          • Xavier

            Lol another slang term for weed. I like it

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I may have never used anything like that, but I can make a joke on it if needed!

          • Cubed56

            lol, that just sounds wrong

          • Ashley

            Apparently you are unfamiliar with how weed works, lol

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I am. I’ve never used any illicit substance. Other than my needed medication, I’m straightedge.

          • Ashley

            That’s good. I just have known enough stoners in my life to know they are anything BUT high energy.

          • Ashley

            That’s good. I just have known enough stoners in my life to know they are anything BUT high energy.

        • Nostaljack

          No way! Foley just played three different characters! It was amazing!

          • Xavier

            R-Truth did 4, he just never switched clothes though. He did Truth on crack, heroin, weed & acid

          • Nostaljack

            True. Truth is awesome. I’m a total Foley mark though.

          • Cubed56

            don’t forget about pcp and ectasy

  • BlazeKing

    A perfect example of an inside joke that ran too long: This WWEShop segment. It was just supposed to be a rib to the whole roster about how Dolph is the best seller in the company. When they put him on, that was supposed to be the end of it.

  • Stephen Cash

    This raw is boring again…

  • 1298ty

    I just watched the greatest promo man of all time try to sell me t-shirts.

    Feels weird.

  • Nostaljack

    WWE App Update: Josh going over what’s coming up. Plugging Xavier Woods coming up. He would love to have the debut that Rock did on this date in 1996. Bring on the video of Salvatore Sincere vs. Rocky Maivia!

  • ldb

    Listen real close when the main event tag match starts and you can hear the thousands in attendance and the millions,….and millions of wrestling fans groan and change the channel when Alberto Del Rio comes out. Ron Simmons wouldn’t even give a Damn!

    • BlazeKing

      I’m kinda groaning right now…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Tell me I didn’t just hear that!

  • Xavier

    Speaking of Truth lol

  • Cubed56

    that was awesome!!! the circumcision lol

  • BlazeKing

    Truth went back into his lil’ jimmy gimmick when he heard dude say that!!!

  • 1298ty

    What happened to “Shut Up?”

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Brodus and I had a talky talky…

  • Nostaljack

    R-Trizzy!

  • Xavier

    Gotta go guys, gonna dance with Naomi

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Alright! Xavier Woods!

  • BlazeKing

    BRODUS GOT REPLACED!!!!

  • Justin Mayo

    The circumcision… uhhh ok! let’s move on to Truth now, and quick!

  • 1298ty

    Hey, that’s Consequences Creed!

    • Nostaljack

      I’m sorry, who?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Time for some Truth and Consequences!

  • Nostaljack

    Oh, the Jheri Curl juice…LOLOLOL!!!

  • The Breaker

    Brodus Clay should give his music to Xavier Woods.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Does it seem like ToF’s music fits Xavier Woods better?

    • BlazeKing

      DVR’ing this back about 5 more times!

  • Scooter

    Xavier Woods? Nah man I’m Rick James bitch!!!!

    • Xavier

      LMFAO, post of the night

  • ldb

    That just scared the crap out of me..I thought the whole place might go up when the grease of Xaiver Woods jerri curl went up with the pyro.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Xavier Woods has a DBZ reference on his tights! Heck yeah!!!

    • The Breaker

      And he says “IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME!” to hype up for his finish.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I just got a man crush!

  • The Breaker

    KOSHER BUTCHER CHANTS!

  • Justin Mayo

    Is Woods a former champion in NXT/FCW? or no?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      No, he isn’t.

      • Justin Mayo

        thanks man- i know he’s a former tag champ, but wasn’t sure since he switched to WWE

        • David Jr.

          Him and Wes Brisco won the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship on November 4, 2010.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Ah, I stand corrected! Thanks David!

  • Cubed56

    i don’t why, but there is something about heath slater i like, i cant pinpoint it, but id like to see him get a little singles run, maybe us champ

    • Nostaljack

      I like him too and I’m not sure why I do either. I think maybe it’s just the way he conducts himself. He doesn’t whine or moan. He just does his job and does it well.

      • Xavier

        Returning your AMEN

      • Cubed56

        i think you just hit the nail on the head. hes giving a terrible jobber gimmck, yet he makes it fun and interesting and doesn’t whine or bitch at all

    • Xavier

      He’s embraced his gimmick. Even though it’s a jobber gimmick he seems to have fun with it. I wouldn’t mind him getting a push either

    • Xavier

      He’s embraced his gimmick. Even though it’s a jobber gimmick he seems to have fun with it. I wouldn’t mind him getting a push either

    • BlazeKing

      He’s actually a really cool person. Never arrogant and is one of the humblest guys there. Won’t hesitate to rib you though.

      • Nostaljack

        He already got pushed once…and it failed. Slater has never been pushed.

    • Stephen Cash

      There are a lot of people I would want pushed first. Including McIntyre.

    • The Breaker

      He’s a good worker and really commits to selling. I think he deserves more of a spotlight than being part of a three-man job squad.

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF update: 49ers 17-6. Colin Kaepernick 9 yard touchdown pass to Boldin. 9:18 third quarter

  • K!ng

    Richard pryor at it again

  • The Breaker

    That’s weird, this time he said “Over 9000″ before doing the Honor Roll instead of “IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME!”.

    • BlazeKing

      It depends what’s on the tights I guess.

    • Nostaljack

      They didn’t want to get all sued and whatnot…LOL!

  • Cubed56

    with woods winning with the funkadactyls at his side does anyone smell a brodus heel turn coming

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Personally, I can hope for just a separation of the Funkadactyls from him and Tensai. But granted, I want a Tensai singles run as face.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “You just said who cares about Brodus? What are you, the WWE Universe?” LOLOLOL!!!

    • The Breaker

      That is hysterical. Love JBL.

  • 1298ty

    What are the Funkadactyls?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Naomi and Cameron, the Divas that accompany Tons of Funk. They accompanied Woods tonight.

      • 1298ty

        Oh, so those cheerleaders are actual wrestlers!

        No idea. You can tell I don’t watch Raw often.

  • Nostaljack

    WWE App Update: Josh announcing blockbuster tag match…again. He’s with ADR. He’s told he failed last night. ADR: Don’t disrespect me, Pero! Survivor series is in the past. Tonight, he’s breaking Cena’s arm in 7 places. He’s gonna show everyone who the real champion is!

    • Nostaljack

      W-E-A-K!

    • Nostaljack

      W-E-A-K!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ugh… Don’t tell me ADR doesn’t think this feud is over.

      • Nostaljack

        He was awfully pissy. It seems they believe there’s some mileage left in it.

        • The Breaker

          Well the Unification Match is booked for TLC, so he’ll have to get over it.

  • BlazeKing

    Did you hear the crowd when Eva showed up?! DAYUM!!!!

    • Xavier

      Heat magnet

      • Jesse Sherwood

        X-Pac heat at that!

        • David F.

          def not good heal heat. More like get off my damn TV. heat

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Yes! Goldy with the creep out!

    • Seth Iser

      Goldy’s found the fountain of youth.

      • Nostaljack

        Thanks, Richard…LOL!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Well, if it’s true….

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Well, if it’s true….

          • Nostaljack

            Oh, it totally is. Goldust is amazing!

          • Seth Iser

            Well I’m from West Virginia too. :P

            Nah seriously, I’ve always been a fan of his. Just glad he’s doing so well.

    • Ashley

      I have missed that!

    • The Breaker

      Apparently Strahan is bringing out all the weirdos!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, it can’t get much worse than Eva!

        • The Breaker

          Amen to that!

  • Nostaljack

    Goldust is awesome!

  • Cubed56

    lol, that never gets old by goldust

  • Stephen Cash

    Stone Cold by a long shot!!!

    • Seth Iser

      What!?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He said Stone Cold! And that’s the bottom line!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He said Stone Cold! And that’s the bottom line!

        • Seth Iser

          *Cleans out ear* What!?

          • BlazeKing

            Stunning Steve

          • Seth Iser

            I would say it again but I just got my ass stunned.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Gives Seth a Stunner*

          • Seth Iser

            *Flips out of the ring and chat room and does the Mcmahon shake sell*

      • Stephen Cash

        They asked who they Rocks biggest WM opponent was between Cena, HH, and SCST

  • Cubed56

    who y’all got for match of the year slammy this year?

    • Xavier

      Cena/Punk from RAW. No weapons, no gimmick match. Just two guys going toe to toe and pulling out all the stops

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Oh… There are so many candidates! I still think Punk vs. Cena on Raw is a contender, but I have to give it to Taker vs. Punk.

    • 1298ty

      Bobby Roode vs James Sto-waaaaait.

      Nevermind.

      • Nostaljack

        Who are they?

        • Stephen Cash

          Two wrestlers that would be awesome to see in WWE

          • BlazeKing

            Bobby Roode actually had a tryout match back in the day but WWF at the time didn’t scoop him up.

    • Seth Iser

      Lesnar-Punk. That to me just feels like what a big fight feel should feel like and it delivered.

    • BrooksOglesby

      Just hoping Rock/Cena doesn’t win, honestly. I think the match I marked hardest for was The Shield’s debut match (even though it was in 2012, it was after the Slammies).

    • Stephen Cash

      Cena vs Punk!!!! On Raw… I was impressed.

    • Nostaljack

      Match of the year: “Jumpin’” Jeff Farmer vs. Motley Cruise!!!!

      • Nostaljack

        Whoever “upped” this is the coolest person here…LOL!

      • Nostaljack

        Whoever “upped” this is the coolest person here…LOL!

        • BlazeKing

          It was me, lol!

          • Nostaljack

            YES! YES! YES!

          • BlazeKing

            That’s exactly what I said as soon as I saw “Jumpin”. I hit that +1 so fast!

          • BlazeKing

            That’s exactly what I said as soon as I saw “Jumpin”. I hit that +1 so fast!

    • Nostaljack

      Newcomer: “Iron” Mike Sharpe!!

    • Cubed56

      i also like most of you have punk vs cena from raw

  • Nostaljack

    WWE App Update: Josh talkin’ Slammys! He’s also recapping Woods. Woods: It’s unreal to go out there and feel the pulse from the ring. I’m on a high right now, I’m tingling. I found out 5 seconds ago that Funkadactyls were coming out with me. I love that!” He has a Kosher Butcher shirt. [A lot of this went too fast and I simply couldn't get it all]

    • Nostaljack

      Woods came across very frenzied. It kinda worked but kinda didn’t. Still, he’s new so I’ll give him a chance.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, WWE compares Orton to a poorly reviewed XBONE game… It fits.

    • The Breaker

      Does the game also put you to sleep?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And has poor combat skills and hit detection!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And has poor combat skills and hit detection!

        • The Breaker

          But the graphics are really pretty!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            As is Orton if you listened to Bryan!

        • Seth Iser

          The crowd needs more a revive than a Hoppip after being burned by a Charizard now.

    • BlazeKing

      Oh snap!

    • Stephen Cash

      Why do you hate him so much? I feel like he has been going a good job lately.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He’s improved quite a bit. Most of these sorts of posts are jokes. I try to lighten things up!

        • Stephen Cash

          Good to know. He deserves some jabs …

      • Nostaljack

        He really has!

  • Nostaljack

    WELLLLL!!!!

  • savokes

    Do the heels usually come out first? If not, this shows who the “true” face is and which belt they value more

  • Ashley

    Look at Randy’s chest! Jesse, still want Big Show to hit you?

    • Nostaljack

      LOLOLOLOL!!

    • Nostaljack

      LOLOLOLOL!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’ll still take it! I’m a glutton for punishment!

      • Ashley

        Hmm, I’d let Randy slap me. He is pretty to look at.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’ll still take it! I’m a glutton for punishment!

    • Cubed56

      i would, ive suffered much worse

  • The Bops

    Why get the PPV when you can see all the rematches on Monday Night RAW??

  • Danny Philippi

    MNF update; 24-6 49ers. Kaepernick with his third touchdown pass, 1 yard to Vernon Davis. 1:05 left in the third quarter.

  • Nostaljack

    Why still chopping Orton? Not cool!

    • Xavier

      It’s what’s best for business

      • Nostaljack

        LOL!!! It’s just cruel at this point. I almost feel bad for him.

    • Xavier

      It’s what’s best for business

  • Nostaljack

    Why still chopping Orton? Not cool!

  • The Breaker

    So right here in the ring is the entire main event scene, and Cena is the only one that gets a reaction.

    • 1298ty

      Bryan and Punk aren’t there.

      • The Breaker

        They’re not directly tied into the main event picture, but that could change.

        • BlazeKing

          The match they had was the main event in my eyes. Raw could have went off right there and I wouldn’t have really cared.

  • The Breaker

    So right here in the ring is the entire main event scene, and Cena is the only one that gets a reaction.

  • Stephen Cash

    I think there will be a screwy finish in unification match maybe they both grab the opposite title to their own…? But if someone walks out undisputed champion it should be Orton, or Cena turning heel and using the authority to get the win. But that won’t happen so Orton should win.

    • Xavier

      I don’t think a Cena heel turn would work if he turns on Orton. Orton has never been a strong enough face

      • Stephen Cash

        Great point! I hate Orton as a face

      • Cubed56

        agreed it could only work against bryan or punk right now

        • Xavier

          Agreed, and maybe Reigns in the future if he continues on the path he’s on

        • Xavier

          Agreed, and maybe Reigns in the future if he continues on the path he’s on

          • Cubed56

            i actually was gonna mention him, but like you said that would be a little bit down the road yet

  • Stephen Cash

    I think there will be a screwy finish in unification match maybe they both grab the opposite title to their own…? But if someone walks out undisputed champion it should be Orton, or Cena turning heel and using the authority to get the win. But that won’t happen so Orton should win.

  • Stephen Cash

    What are the chances, if we get an undisputed champion, that they defend them separately?

  • Nostaljack

    WWE App Update: ADR and Cena in the ring. They look at each other. Squaring off. ADR goes after the arm. Cena reverses and goes after Cena. Cena whips him to the ropes and gets a bulldog. Cena goes for AA but it’s turned around Cena’s slammed into the mat. ADR goes for pin for 2. Orton in. Orton does the stomp. Orton with chinlock on Cena. Cena weakened. Back to Raw…

  • Danny Philippi

    Hey I just realized that the Real Americans did not appear tonight. Just odd.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the crowd is bored again, so they start chanting for Bryan!

    • Seth Iser

      Rule 1 in wrestling: Know your audience.

      Rule 2: Listen.

      This show kind’a has a giant reek of failing in both in a ton of respects. I hate being negative but it feels that way.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I can agree, but to me it feels like the negative components from last night have bled over tonight, and the fans are voicing that.

        • Seth Iser

          It’s like the old saying. You hold one good show…it carries its weight for say a week and you tell a couple of people. You hold a bad one? It carries twice the weight for triple the amount of time and you tell everyone.

  • The Breaker

    I want the title unification, but the World Heavyweight Championship will be missed. So much history with that belt.

  • savokes

    Interesting thought/question…has everyone in this ring had a fued with one another over the past few years for either the WWE belt or the WHC?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep!

      • savokes

        I thought so!

  • 1298ty

    That move from ADR while Cena was on the top rope was reallly impressive

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait… Last Undisputed champ was Lesner… I see his WM feud!

    • Stephen Cash

      Undertaker falling through still?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Personally, I don’t want to see Taker face Lesner. We have been used to people putting out all out contests with Taker and bringing the absolute best from him, and I don’t think Lesner is the guy to do that with him.

        • Xavier

          Give me Cena/Taker, Bryan/Lesnar, Punk/Cesaro & Reigns/Orton at Mania. BOOK IT!

          • The Breaker

            Bryan vs. Lesnar… now that’s intriguing! I do want to see Cesaro vs. Cena at some point as well.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Tell you what, replace Shaq with HHH and add Orton vs. someone and you have a solid card. Maybe Reigns?

          • The Breaker

            Orton vs. Ziggler would be awesome, but improbable at this point.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Personally, I want to see Ziggler vs. Ambrose for the US Title again on there. Let that be the time the Ambrose drops it.

          • The Breaker

            Great match, but do you really want the US Title on Ziggler? To me that would be like the kiss of death.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Honestly, no, but considering his current stock, it would help bring him back up.

          • The Breaker

            But what competition is even there for the US Title? It’s practically nonexistent.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Well, if they are looking to do like I think they are by unifying the top titles, I think we may start seeing a thinning of the roster which will help build the tiers back up.

          • The Breaker

            They use barely half of the roster (at least it seems that way), so it is definitely time they trim the fat. I like the unification because it raises the value of the lower-card belts by forcing upper-tier guys down to compete for them.

    • Stephen Cash

      And let’s hope not. That kinda means he wins the RR…

    • The Breaker

      Cena vs. Lesnar would be epic!

      • Cubed56

        weve already seen it, not real interested in it

        • The Breaker

          It’s been long enough since the last time, and the match wouldn’t be like the one at ER.

          • Cubed56

            true

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’m picturing Orton vs. Face Lesner. Heyman vs. The Authority!

        • Cubed56

          id like to see a face lesnar

        • The Breaker

          Turn Heyman face? No way!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It could work beautifully! Heyman has been face before!

          • The Breaker

            Yeah but it would take a lot to get today’s fans to cheer him, especially with Triple H randomly acting like a babyface.

          • Cubed56

            fans cheer for lesnar right now as a heel, they will have no problem cheering for him as a face

          • The Breaker

            Probably. I was just saying that it would be more difficult turning Heyman. It could still be done though.

          • Cubed56

            I just noticed you were talking about heyman not lesnar, my bad bud

          • The Breaker

            It’s cool.

  • The Bops

    I know it’s Cena/Orton, but it’s already a better card than Survivor Series and I’m ordering it.

  • Nostaljack

    Show is selling beautifully!

  • Danny Philippi

    Now Big Show playing the concussion angle. Ugh!

  • 1298ty

    So do superkicks really hit the side of the head that hard?

    • BlazeKing

      Depends…

      • Nostaljack

        If it’s botched, they do. Ordinarily, it’s thrown while the thrower is slapping his thigh to make the noise you hear.

        • BlazeKing

          Of if the workers want to work stiff (or one is stiffer than the other).

  • Nostaljack

    I just noticed how much Ryback looks like Show. Ugh.

  • Xavier

    What’s the deal with this Big Show stuff

  • Stephen Cash

    Sheamus returns to take his spot!!!

  • Xavier

    Does this mean we’re getting Big Show/Del Rio at TLC?

  • Cubed56

    i know someone who is pissed off at this apparent angle

    • Xavier

      Who, every ex NFL player ever?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Me.

      • Stephen Cash

        I don’t get it. It’s no different than having a character act like they have one on a tv show.

        • BlazeKing

          After the whole Chris Benoit thing and subsequent removal of him from WWE History, you’d think they’d know better than to use concussion angles all willy nilly.

          • 1298ty

            This isn’t all willy nilly, they’ve treated this with as much seriousness as you can expect from a cable television program.

          • BlazeKing

            By willy nilly, I mean every punt to the head Randy Orton has given out, ADR kicking a recently concussed Dolph Ziggler in the head, and most of the other angles they’ve done in the past year alone.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And I have spoken out against every one of those. For a company working so close to SLI, they have been using concussions a lot more of late.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Stephen, it is because there are very serious connotations from them. I still suffer every day from the after effects of just one, including randomly just blacking out. And maybe I am overly sensitive to them thanks to that, but when something can literally destroy your quality of life, I think that they shouldn’t be playing it as something less than immediately match stopping.

      • Cubed56

        probably them too

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yes, I am. Concussions should not be used like this.

  • Nostaljack

    Say what you want but ADR can work.

    • 1298ty

      Right? I’m impressed.

      I always hear about his lack of ‘charisma’, but he’s really impressive in the ring.

      • Nick K

        Charisma and ring work are two completely different things. ADR is excellent in the ring, not sure anyone who has a clue is gonna disagree with that but damn, the guy couldn’t be any less interesting if he tried. The character hasn’t progressed in a meaningful way and he’s had millions of opportunities.

    • Xavier

      Agreed. The Character aspect is missing from him though. He doesn’t drive out in the fancy cars anymore, or wink at the camera with that heelish smile and of course no Ricardo

  • Xavier

    Fans we’re kinda dead for this match

  • The Breaker

    Stupid ADR always doing the post-match attacks. Annoying.

  • Nostaljack

    ADR and Cena angle just ended.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Thank the Overlords!

  • Stephen Cash

    Is a title belt shot to the head against the rules?

  • Danny Philippi

    Can’t wait for the ratings for this Raw. Hope it is a referendum of WWE’s poor judgement. Goona watch some MNF. Peace.

  • Seth Iser

    I might want to retreat before I get my ass stunned again. Had fun today. Hope everyone had fun too.

    • Nostaljack

      Night, Danny!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night! It was fun!

  • Xavier

    It’s been fun as always. Here’s to hoping RAW is better next week though. Have a blessed night everyone.

    • Nostaljack

      Night, Xavier!

    • The Breaker

      Same here, Mr. Woods. Take care, spike your hair (sorry, I had to)!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Woo Woo Woo, you know it!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night dude!

    • Cubed56

      later bro

  • Scooter

    That was one of the worst Raws I can remember. Really hope the step it up next week. This was bad…..

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I can’t wait to read what KB thinks of it in tomorrow’s RIB! I have a feeling she will be brutal!

      • Nostaljack

        Oh, she’s gonna Gin-zu it! Should be fun. I love it when she gets all “Designing Women” Sugarbaker on it.

        • Ashley

          Designing Women Dixie! LMAO

          • Nostaljack

            The only Dixie Carter that matters. Why I edited that I don’t know…LOL!! It originally said “Designing Women” Dixie. Shame on me.

      • The Breaker

        She’ll bring the venom, I just know it!

  • Nostaljack

    So where does ADR go from here?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Back to the mid card, where he should have always been.

    • The Breaker

      He needs to take a break and come back refreshed, maybe with a few character tweaks here and there.

  • Nostaljack

    What about Ricardo? Haven’t seen him in a long time other than on Spanish announce.

    • The Breaker

      They obviously have no role for him right now. Hopefully they find some way to use him, instead of waiting for RVD to come back.

      • Nostaljack

        That was weak and made no sense anyway. Maybe put him with Rey Mysterio?

        • The Breaker

          That would be interesting. Chances are Rey will end up feuding with ADR anyway.

          • Nostaljack

            Rey needs a mouthpiece anyway and Ricardo can provide.

          • The Breaker

            I don’t think there’s a necessity there with Rey. He’s over no matter what.

          • Nostaljack

            Very true. Still, it could be fun with the two of them.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’s working on his in-ring work as El Local.

      • Nostaljack

        He’s better outside of it. I don’t need to see him in the ring. ‘Course, I’m sure he’s having more fun that way but still.

  • Nostaljack

    I missed about an hour of RAW. Was Arn on?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope.

      • Nostaljack

        Yikes! They weren’t being pushed, really, but still not a good sign.

  • Nostaljack

    For my part, I can’t wait for next week’s main event: Angelo Mosca vs. Austin Idol in a lumberjack match! Must see!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Take Care Everyone. Fingers Crossed for a better Raw next week. My hopes are not too high but hey one can still hope

    • Nostaljack

      Night, Navin!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night Navin!

  • Nostaljack

    What becomes of PTP? They appear to be in real trouble.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, looks like they are separating them into singles guys. Personally, I see Titus excelling and Darren flopping down to jobber status.

      • The Breaker

        Titus has loads more charisma than Darren, that’s for sure.

      • Nostaljack

        Yeah, Darren is going nowhere…fast.

    • The Breaker

      I don’t know if they’re finished, just on hold for now. That segment with Miz and Strahan was too weird to take anything out of it.

  • Nostaljack

    So with the unification, what’s going to become of Smackdown?

    • The Breaker

      It’ll be like a two-hour episode of Main Event.

      • Nostaljack

        It appears that way. How can Smackdown matter if their title is gone?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Sadly, I have to say that it might not be any different.

        • The Breaker

          It really isn’t all that relevant now. I like that it’s more wrestling-heavy though.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Agreed, on most nights. But granted, you can read my thoughts in the Breakdown! *Cheap Plug*

          • The Breaker

            (in his Michael Cole voice) THERE IT IS! THE CHEAP PLUG!! IT’S ALL OVER!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            (JBL Voice) Shut up Cole!

  • Nostaljack

    Okay, kids, I’m outta here. Between tonight and tomorrow, it’s been a rough two nights for us WWE marks. Where to from here? Where there are valleys, peaks must be nearby. Here’s hoping. Night, all!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye, same here Ed. Night!

    • The Breaker

      The Punk/Bryan/Wyatts/Shield stuff is great though. There’s always something to keep us coming back! Night!

  • Justin Lal

    I love how Cena acknowledged the Daniel Bryan chants and by doing it he completely changed the narrative of those chants. It was good that WWE had someone address the chants. Those same people were chanting Randy Savage during their beloved Dolph Ziggler’s match. All night they tried to start some ridiculous chant.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The crowd was quite bad tonight. They tuned out early and didn’t get back into it until Bryan and Punk’s match, but then they quickly turned on the show again. All in all, not a good night.

      • Justin Lal

        They won’t ever turn on Bryan and Punk. Like I said these crowds are just too predictable now. Every damn chant as the same rhythm to it with the claps. It’s just getting old. They have an agenda they are trying to push. I remember going to a RAW show back in 2003 and the crowd was lively but so well mannered. They actually allowed matches to develop without getting restless.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Although, I will say that we figured out the Savage chant was for a guy in the crowd dressed as him. Not excusing it by any means, but at least we know why.

    • The Breaker

      I do find it irritating when the crowd chants crazy things to draw attention to themselves, but in their defense there wasn’t much during the actual show to cheer for.

  • Scott Davies

    I think it is a given Alberto Del Rio is no maineventer. I don’t care how good he is in the ring. His gimmick is boring & not marketable. Midcard role should be where he should be.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, it’s been fun everyone! Thanks for joining us, and see you next week for Raw!

  • Akshay Jumani

    huge disappointment,Its a feud we’ve seen multiple times,and if a unification does occur it should only be at Wrestlemania in a singles KO match
