Recap from the WWE WHC MITBLM at MITB last night. Kane was trying to make sure Orton won the match, but Super Cena came back and won the match.

In Ring Segment

Trip’s music and he comes out in his power suit, holding Steph’s hand, as she wears her power suit. They head to the ring together, smiling. They soak up the ire as JBL, King, and Cole bicker on announce.

Steph – What an amazing homecoming. I’m sure you’re all well aware I was born in Hartford. We have that in common, I know you all feel so privileged, but truthfully it’s a privilege to be out here celebrating MITB.

Huge “CM Punk!” chants.

Steph – We started the night out with Bryan. Now, unfortunately, Bryan, his recovery is going to take longer than everyone had hoped, and that’s sad. But we’re in the business of making history, not living in the past. Last night Rollins did just that to beat six others in one of the most exhilarating matches I’ve seen, winning the MITB contract virtually guaranteeing he will be WWE WHC.

Trip – Absolutely Steph, as I’ve said over and over, Rollins is the future of the WWE. But that’s not the only thing that happened last night, no because for the first time ever, the WWE WHC was decided in an 8 man ladder match. The man that won that match, well Steph and I have always known, like everyone else, is an A+ player, and he made history becoming a 15 World Champion. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome right now, the brand new WWE WHC, John Cena.

Cena out, the belts hooked together, draped around his neck. Steph give Cena a mic, but Cena won’t shake Trip’s hand.

Steph – John…

Cena stops her.

Cena – Before I say something, it sounds like they want to say something. You referenced Daniel Bryan.

Steph – I did.

Cena – Bryan said when he is back, he’s going to be better than ever. So I just wanted to tell anyone listening, Daniel I know you’re listening too. I know they won’t give you an opportunity, but will I give you an opportunity to regain the championships you never lost? “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” I hope to see you soon.

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Cena – So, what’s on your mind?

Steph – That was very special. But I have a question for everyone here. How many of you are gamers? To commemorate your 15th WWE WHC, we’re proud to announce that you’re going to be featured on the latest installment in the video game 2K franchise, 2K15!

Steph and Trip motion, the pyro hits, but nothing. Trip motions again, and it finally unfurls! Cena doesn’t look impressed (even though I’m sure he posed for it.)

Steph – It looks beautiful, doesn’t it? We are especially proud of this, isn’t it amazing John?

Cena – Okay, uh. First of all, thanks. Believe it or not, to be on the cover is an honor. You guys are being way, way too nice, way, way too soon. I was at MITB last night, and after the match I saw a much different look on this pair of faces. Something that looks kinda like this.

Pic of Trip holding his head, and Steph looking horrified.

Steph – That’s just taken out of context. We were real concerned about Orton.

Cena – Yeah, you were real concerned about Orton in your back pocket. He’s your good little soldier. You’ve also got Kane in your back pocket. Rollins in your back pocket. The reason that’s real and these smiles are phony is because you don’t control me, and the Champ is here!

Trip – Okay, okay, okay, chill homie (moving his non-mic hand in some strange way in front of himself). I knows wes be close to West Newbury, yous be dropping your Rs and comin’ off all thuggin’ and stuff. (Paul Levesque comes from a French Canadian family and grew up in New Hampshire. They drop their Rs as hard as those around Boston, and right up in to Maine.) But chill man.

Cena (in serious Boston, Mass and north fashion) – You want me to drop the R, I will. I’ll also whip your ass right heah in front uh everybody, and shoot down tah 95, and kick ya all tha way tuh New Hampshuh. (I can get away with this, because I sound like this too.)

twp – Whoa, easy Dr. of Thuganomics. Chill your role a little bit and back it up. We don’t have a problem with you John, we never had a problem with you. I don’t have a problem with you on the cover of 2K14, or on the cover of magazines and being a big Superstar. It truly doesn’t even bother me that you’re the Champion, as long as you do it with some respect. Because you know as well as I do, all of this can go away like that, right. You know as well as I do, as always around here. You can do things the easy way, (gravely voice) or you can do it the hard way.

Cena – Well if the easy way is running around and being your little stooge, I’ll do it the way I always do it, the hard way.

Trip – John, honestly, I’d have been disappointed if you said it any other way. Hard way it shall be. At Battleground you shall defend your WWE WHC in a Fatal 4 Way Match.

Steph – Wait a minute, a Fatal 4 Way Match? You mean where Cena faces three other competitors and doesn’t have to get pinned to lose his titles?

Trip – That is the very one Steph!

Cena – That’s great.

Steph – The hard way, for sure.

Cena – Who’s in it.

Trip – You want to know who’s in it? It’s funny you should say, who’s in it, because two of the guys in it, you’re going to face tonight. Orton, and Kane. Don’t worry John, tonight you will have a partner, your partner will be the 4th man you fight to keep those championships. Roman Reigns. Enjoy all of this, it goes by fast.

Cena – Congratulations boss, you did it. If at Battleground I keep this, then I damn sure earned it. It’s almost as tough and embarrassing as swimming in a pool of crap. That’s almost as bad as someone pushing you into a pool of crap. Almost as bad as swimming in a pool of crap.

Cena leaves the ring.

Trip – Just to make sure you understand, at Battleground, you’re in a Fatal 4 Way, and if you survive that, don’t worry, there’s always a plan B.

Out comes Rollins behind Cena, holding his case. He looks at it, smiles, then heads to the ring. The three of them pose, arms high, case high, in the ring.

Video recap of the high points of the match. Rollins in the ring with Renee.

Renee – Seth Rollins, last night…

Rollins – Hey, hey, hey, hey, if you’re going to introduce me lady, do it right. It’s Mr. MITB Seth Rollins to you toots. (heat) What? You think it’s arrogance, right? It ain’t arrogance when you can back it up. So in my opinion, you’re all just bitter that I was right and you were wrong. This is my golden ticket, I get a shot at the WWE WHC, anytime, anywhere, and if last night is any indicator…

Ambrose – Seth!

Rollins – I always get what I want.

Ambrose (On tron) – Listen puppet-boy, from one scumbag to another, you don’t think this is over, do ya? You don’t think you won last night, do ya? You didn’t win, in fact, your Plan A failed miserably, and your Daddy Triple H had to bail you out with Plan B, sending Uncle Kane down to knock me off that ladder. I’m not even upset about what happened at MITB, because it might be more fun this way. Every time you even think about cashing in that contract, I’m going to be there. I’m going to haunt you. Go ahead and make all the plans you want, because that briefcase you’re holding doesn’t have a contract inside, it’s loaded with TNT. Every time you try to cash it in, it’s going to blow up in your face. Believe that.

Rollins in the ring yelling smack at Ambrose off mic about it being his time and the case means he’s the man.

In Ring Segment

Rusev out abusing his flag. Lana out in blue, trailing behind him to the ring.

Lana – Rusev’s last opponent was a failure, but that’s okay because America is accustom to failure. In face, it’s woven in your culture.

“USA!” chants.

Lana – USA! USA! Shut up! You teach your children that it’s not about winning or losing, it’s about participating. You lie to your children, saying that America is the greatest nation in the world. There is only one super power in the world, led by the greatest leader in the world, Vladimir Putin. No one can stop the onslaught of Russia. No one can stop the onslaught of Rusev! Who will be America’s next failure to compete against Rusev?

Rusev – Rusev crush! (“What?”)

“USA!” chants and both Rusev and Lana seethe in the ring. Swagger’s music and he comes out with Zeb in tow. Zeb struggles to get on the apron and stand up before climbing in.

Zeb – You know something, I’m sick and tired of you coming out week after week after week and slamming our country. I’m sick of it. What I want you to do it shut the hell up! You know why you’re allowed to do that Lana, if that is your real name. You’re allowed to do it because of the freedom of speech, which means you can say whatever you want to say, whenever you want to say it. It also means I can say whatever I want to say, whenever I want to say it. So I’ve got something to say right now. You know Natasha, you and Boris here, we couldn’t go to your country and say the pack of lies that you say, because your country wouldn’t allow it, because you’ve taken advantage of our freedoms. That’s exactly what you have done. Let me tell you something. I want you to listen to this, because you did say something that piqued our interest. You said, ‘Nothing can stop the Rusev crush.’ I know something that can stop it. I think a Real American can stop it. I think Jack Swagger can stop it. I want you to both stand there and listen to a real America come crashing down on your heads, because I want ever real American to stand up, put your hand over your heart, and in a loud, clear voice, say with us, “We, the people!” (The loudest I’ve ever heard that chant!)

Arm drags on Rusev, and then he flees the ring. Lana yelling in Rusev’s face as he is focused on Swagger and wants to fight.

White shirt open at the collar, gray scarf tying together the look with his gray leather shoes. Of course wearing aviators to show off. Miz waits by the ropes in the ring for the ringside staff to turn the WWE logo upside-down on the mic for him.

Miz – I’m baaaaack. Miss me? (mixed) Because the former WWE Champion, multimedia crossbrand entertainment Superstar is no other than your good old friend, The Miz. You know I’ve been gone for four months shooting the soon to me blockbuster hit, Marine 4: Moving Target, and I’ll tell you, I was tempted to stay in Hollywood. I was called by studio execs begging me to stay, and perfect the craft and art that is acting. Nothing’s better than the WWE, but if I kept on that path, I’d be Hollywood’s biggest movie star. Why did I come back? The answer is all of you. All of you, cause unlike Hollywood who appreciates me, the WWE fans don’t appreciate me for the A-List talent that I am, you take me as a fluke, for granted. A guy who main evented WrestleMania only to stop main eventing. But I’m here to tell you that you’re wrong. (“What?”) You’re wrong. (“What?”) You are all wrong. (“What?”) You have always been wrong. (“What?”) You know how many assistants I have? (“What?”) I’m the A-lister who can do anything and everything, and I won’t leave until I’m main eventing WrestleMania and you show me the respect and admiration that I so rightly deserve. (“What?”) I won’t leave until you are all on your knees begging me not to go. And then, and only then when…

Miz – You got something to say Chris? You come out here to give me a lifetime achievement award? Oh, this is 2012 Chris Jericho when you come back for three weeks, don’t talk in your stupid Lite Brite jacket.

Off comes the jacket to show Jericho is ripped.

Miz – Now you’re going to take off the jacket. You know what? How dare you Chris. How dare you deprive these people a moment to allow me to shine. You know how important I am? I’m an actor, a movie star, I’m a box office draw, I’m a…

Codebreaker on Miz. Huge pop from the fans and Jericho eggs them on. The fans are wild and loving Jericho. Off comes his sleeveless unzipped hoodie.

Jericho – Damn! That felt good! Did that feel good? I have been waiting a long time to say these words, and I’m going to say them right now, tonight. Welcome to RAW Is…

DEP! The lights are out. The come back up, and The Wyatt Family are in the ring, staring at Jericho. Jericho looks around at them. Rowan tips his head. ‘This Is Awesome’ chants.

Divas Championship Match – Paige (c) vs AJ

Paige to the ring, smile on her face, strap held high. Paige kisses the strap and calls for a mic.

Paige – Okay, I’m a woman of a few words, usually I let my actions speak for me, but now, I know there was a few people who thought I shouldn’t be a Champion, should go to NXT. I feel that over the past three months I’ve proven I’m here to stay.

AJ’s music hits, and the married woman skips to the ring, around the ring, then around the ring again. AJ into the ring, skips over, grabs a mic.

AJ – Paige…

“CM Punk!”

AJ – I just wanted to come out and say, you’re right.

Paige – Sorry?

AJ – Look, this isn’t entirely easy to say, but you’re right. You did what no woman in almost a year could do, you proved me wrong. You proved everyone wrong. I know the type of person I became. I let success go to my head. Granted, I was the longest reigning Divas Champion of all time. But I shouldn’t have rubbed it in everyone’s face like I did. I thought I was untouchable. You gave me the slap of reality that I needed. So I wanted to return the favor and say thank you, and congratulations.

Paige – How stupid do you think I am? AJ, you’re doing exactly what I did to you the night after WrestleMania, and you’re doing it to goad me into a rematch, because it’s some kind of poetic justice, but there’s a problem, that’s not going to happen. I’m not going to make the same mistake you did, besides…

“CM Punk!”

Paige – Besides, I don’t think anyone in this arena wants to see me defend my Championship tonight.

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

AJ – Well Paige, my sweet little crumpet, why don’t we let everyone here decide? Do you guys want to see a Championship rematch, right now?

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Paige – Okay. Okay.

Paige kisses the belt again before handing it off.

AJ dives on Paige, but tossed off. Paige with a big kick on AJ, then head butts to the back of AJ’s head. AJ whipped, but eats AJ’s feet. Big clothesline to AJ for two.

    Reckon I’m here early for once. Hello!

    And I’m late! Sorry!

    • CJ Blaze

      Are those fast fingers ready to go?!

  • Andrew

    hey guys what up!

    • CJ Blaze

      I’m ready for more wrestling!

  • Seth

    For something to shoot the breeze with anyway…about a week ago(8 days actually) got the chance to meet Kurt Angle. Was great. He booed me for wearing WVU gear to the show(cause he’s from Pittsburgh…but I laughed when he did it.) and when the camera guy wasn’t paying attention and wouldn’t take the picture extending the line…we made fun of him royally. Wicked fun stuff. Met him for the first time and we almost talked briefly like friends uniting because he has the same sense of humor I have. So thumbs up to that.

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

      That is very cool. I’ve heard from Alex Barie – our TNA guys – that Angle is a great guy.

      • Seth

        Meeting wrestlers and they turn out to be great…it just makes you that much more of a fan. Where as if you meet a wrestler…and they’re a wanker…well…you get a bitter taste in your mouth about it.

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

          I’ve met a number of them who have been total jerks. I could give you a list, but Shane Douglas is at the top of it, by far! One of the nicest was Tommy Dreamer. Tony Atlas is right up there too, but I’ve spent a lot more time with him, and each time he makes me feel at ease, and is just a joy to be around.

          • Seth

            I’ll just say I will bury Matt Hardy to everyone for how he treated me and a few others when I had the unfortunate distinction of meeting that horrific human being.

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

            Yeah, Jesse and I met Matt Hardy. Reby Sky was lovely, MH was a total DB. Further, this was the same night we met Vader, just before he went all openly a-hole. Vader and MH spoiled the night for most, but Gowen and my wrestling friends working the event made it all worth while. I ripped MH apart in my article, and talked up Reby, and she re-tweeted my article. What does that show you? Was he screwed up when you met him?

          • Seth

            He had his head up his own rear end. I could use far more…colorful language to describe how arrogant and entitled he was…(not to mention sandbagging the poor kid that had to work with him and the kid being green probably didn’t know how to deal with a veteran being a jackass) but I’d say he was a little screwed up. Not as bad as I’ve seen him in other places but yeah…just even thinking about it makes me think I should name a toilet after him.

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

            That would be too nice for him.

          • Seth

            I think I’m insulting the toilet too. Crap.

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

            Absolutely! MH isn’t as good as a toilet drain in the nastiest bathroom in the nastiest subway station in the nastiest spot in the world.

          • Seth

            I’ve also seen a disgusting one when I had the displeasure at eating at a Golden Corral. I HATE that place.

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

            I live too far north for that, but I have been to one. But I was brought back to a toilet that was just a pipe in some tiny town in Mexico. That was pretty nasty, but still better than MH.

          • Seth

            I’d almost watch a Vince Russo booked product than ever see MH on a television or anything for the rest of my life…almost.

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

            No almost, I would sooner watch a tampon on a pole match (my way of dissing Russo) than ever watch MH – live or on TV – again. Now, that doesn’t include his early days in WWF. He was solid then.

          • Seth

            I JUST ate…and visualized that match…and now I need some tums…

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

            I’m sorry. It’s just that man will put ANYTHING on a pole, so why not?

          • Seth

            …when you just said the word anything…a ton of NC-17 to Adult rated stuff I could see that man putting on a pole now.

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

            Wasn’t there a Viagra on a pole match at one point?

          • Seth

            If there was…I’d have to GUESS it might’ve involved Val Venis.

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

            I asked Jesse, he would know. I have to write Raw, so while I’m having a blast, I’m off!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Shane Douglas vs Billy Kidman.

          • David Jr.

            I knew that, I even remember the match.

          • Seth

            Oh piss. I almost want to look that match up out of morbid curiosity now.

          • Xavier

            I meet Jim Ross once, not what you would expect. I was very disappointed

          • Xavier

            I want names. Who was cool and who were asses? Lol

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

            Are you messing with me?

          • Xavier

            No. I’m curious. I love sharing stories with fans about the wrestlers they’ve met

          • Seth

            *Points down at entire conversation about how Matt Hardy is a wanker*

  • Craig

    Hopefully punk is the returning really don’t think so but one can only dream

    • Andrew

      its probably the miz or maybe brock lesnar

  • Danny Philippi

    Layla v. Summer Rae: 1 out of 5 (Piss Break Award)
    WWE World Title Ladder Match: 3 out of 5 (Underwhelming Award)

    • Seth

      I’m not much of a star rating guy…but I guess I can do a quick rundown myself for more conversation. :P

      Tag Team Title match between the Usos and Harper/Rowan was a great way to open things. The Usos can open every major show(PPV) and I’ll be happy as long as they get at least ten minutes. Two thumbs up.

      Divas Title Match Paige vs Naomi: Minus that one slip up…I really enjoyed what both brought to the dance. These two can be a more extended program…it’d be good matches…and help both out. Thumbs up.

      Adam Rose vs Damien Sandow: Poor Damien Sandow. I know he’s making due with what he has…but he really really deserves better than this. Nothing that’ll stick with you but it was just fine for what it was.

      MitB Ladder Match: Crazy. Thumbs up for the hard work…thumbs down for the tired(or as Jesse put it…Russoish finish with the power stable) finish. I don’t think Rollins is spectacularly over as a heel on his own and he’s not a great promo. Okay enough sure…but everything about him screams face…and I just don’t buy what he’s selling as a heel.

      Stardust/Goldust vs Rybaxel: Filler…just a match to give Stardust a win in route to their eventual break up…though I almost want to see a heel Goldust/Stardust vs Usos match because I think they’d be great matches.

      Layla vs Summer Rae: *Insert four letter words here* Thumbs down. Less said the better.

      WWE World Title Ladder Match: Okay ladder match. Glad Randy is okay…they almost booked Bray like a babyface here with how he had that one moment of a comeback in a way. Don’t think much of John having the damn belts for a fifteenth time and if they’re going the direction I think they’re going…I could rant about Brock vs John a bunch of times…really including that first match which the ending infuriated me to this day and damaged Brock as a draw badly. Cesaro is a freak though. Seeing him Uppercut the crap out of people is always fun.

      Good pay per view. Much more to like than dislike. Fun watching it.

  • CJ Blaze

    Hey guys! Looks like we have a big show in store for us tonight and I’m pumped!

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

      You’re pumped, I’m tweaked out about writing it! I’m so worried about huge amounts of talking and getting way behind – again!

      • CJ Blaze

        Everything will be alright. Just remember that hundreds, maybe thousands of people are counting on your very detailed results ;)

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

          Bite me!

  • Xavier

    What’s good my wrestling brothers & sisters

    • Seth

      Well, we came off a good pay per view…so things are good from a wrestling point of view.

      • Xavier

        I agree bro

  • Danny Philippi

    Turning my attention to Fox Sports 1 tonight watching the special on the Special Olympics. Raw Pre-show can wait until next week. #SupriseMe

  • Scott

    What? Why is the preshow panel not at the arena??? This version sucks

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

    Good evening WNW

  • CJ Blaze

    As I’m watching the pre-show, I question why they are playing actual footage from MITB, but then remember that you have to have the Network to watch the pre-show LOL

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

      I always forget about it. For me the Network is for old PPVs, and new PPVs. It is my PPV Network! And it they gave us all of the old Raw, SD, Nitro and Thunder, I’d never watch anything else.

      • Andrew

        agreed! i hope they some how do that

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

          I do too. But I’d never leave home!

          • Andrew

            right haha

  • Scott

    Calling the big return to be The Miz

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

      They didn’t mention which type of champ, so why not Sting?

      Honestly, it could be anyone who’s still alive who has ever held gold, so…

      • Scott

        I think Ill have a heart attack if its Sting! That would be awesome but I still think its gonna be a lame return of The Miz

      • Craig

        They said it was a former WWE Champion!!
        Maybe CM Punk??

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

          I didn’t know if it was Champion, or a specific one mentioned. I knew it wouldn’t be Sting, but he has to be mentioned each time anything comes up. I HIGHLY doubt it will be Punk.

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

          Danny – no posting links to other sites, please. I pulled your comment for that reason. It’s a rule around here.

          • Craig

            Sorry I didn’t mean for it to be a link really sorry

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

            No prob. Not tweaking at you, as you’re a great commenter, just letting you know why it’s gone.

  • Danny Philippi

    Hartford, CT. Home to one of the worst WrestleMania’s, if not pay per views, ever.

  • Scott

    Anyone elses preshow feed looking weirdly grainy?

    • CJ Blaze

      Mine is fine

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

    I will not be surprised by a Miz TV segment tonight

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

      Miz really does make the most sense, but what a terrible letdown for the fans!

      • ldb

        that would have a dixie feel to it to me

  • ldb

    I m hoping for Mark Henry or Big Show to show up soon.

    • CJ Blaze

      I think Show is filming a movie.

    • Seth

      This makes me miss heel Mark Henry.

      • ldb

        Yes sir. Heel Henry is Megatron in transformers the movie, While face Henry is more like starscream in g1 in terms of power. He goes from 10 to a -8

        • Seth

          He was just also a very entertaining heel bully character.

          • ldb

            The retirement speech is one of my all time favorites.

  • Danny Philippi

    Feels weird looking out my window and the sun is still out. After the winter we had up north, it is a relief.

  • Scott

    God Id rather watch paint dry than watch Byron Saxton

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

      I’d rather watch my pool evaporate than watch Byron Saxton!

      • Scott

        He reminds me of that kind of douchey frat boy that nobody likes but they keep around cause he has money

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

          And make fun of behind his back – and don’t have to be drunk to do it!

    • Seth

      I’d almost rather see Rusev cut a one hour promo than Byron Saxton. Almost.

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

    I hope its not Y2J

  • CJ Blaze

    One would think I could get on Twitter for ten seconds without reading “spoilers” on who’s returning tonight. Uuuugh

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

      And you wonder why I avoid it.

      • CJ Blaze

        I could shoot someone. Is that too violent?

  • Dustyn

    I’m reading that people think it’ll be Lesnar or Miz returning, but I have a really strong suspicion that it will be Jericho.

  • Danny Philippi

    Who do you want to return to Raw tonight?
    A. Brock Lesnar
    B. Chris Jericho
    C. The Miz
    D. Cm punk

    • Dustyn

      B.

    • Scott

      C. Miz

      • Scott

        Wait wait wait….who do I want to return? Jericho!!!!

    • CJ Blaze

      D!

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

      C.

    • Xavier

      E. Big Show

    • Trapdoor

      F. Vince McMahon

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

    The outline of the Superstar returning looked like Miz or ADR, and since ADR won’t bloody leave long enough for anyone to care…

    • Seth

      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • Dustyn

    I haven’t watched RAW/SD fully for the last few weeks, but where has Natalya been?

    • CJ Blaze

      Lost in the shuffle.

      • Dustyn

        Okay

        • CJ Blaze

          Unfortunately, I don’t even remember the last match she was in. She needs to be challenging for the divas title IMO

          • Dustyn

            I think I last saw her on NXT. Maybe if/when Naomi wins the title, they can have some matches.

          • CJ Blaze

            Oh yeah, her match against Charlotte haha! Can’t believe I forgot.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      She had her nose broken by Summer Rae and has been out due to it.

      • CJ Blaze

        Huh?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          A while back, Summer broke her nose and she has been on light duty since.

  • James Larochelle

    Howdy folks

  • Dustyn

    So will Stephanie get the homecrowd cheers/support tonight? I think not!

  • The Breaker

    Hello all! I heard the announcement that a former champion is returning to RAW tonight. I’m hoping for Jericho, though that guy is so busy these days that it’s hard to predict when he’ll show up. No way it’s CM Punk though. But maybe he will come back one day… all you have to do is BO-lieve!

    • Dustyn

      I think maybe one day Punk will make a return/appearance, but for tonight, I’m going with Jericho.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Hellllooo LADIES!

    • CJ Blaze

      Goooodbye Gesus ;P

  • Danny Philippi

    THREE MINUTE WARNING!

  • Scott

    Sure hope we get an epic BO-NER chant tonight!

  • Xavier

    Maybe the former champ who’s returning is The Big Show, where the hell has that dude been anyway?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Guys, I am here, but I’m out of pocket a bit. Ex is running behind with the kids.

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

      Don’t get me started on THAT one!

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

    And I’m off to write Raw! Have fun guys!

  • Danny Philippi

    RAW STARTS NOW!

  • Gesus Oliver

    This show better be good. They really need to shift gears in WWE.

  • The Breaker

    The only thing that could make the sting of Cena being champ again worse is if he comes out and cuts another corny promo.

  • Paul Jameson

    SuperCena to the rescue!!!

  • Xavier

    Anyone think we’re getting a Orton face turn soon?

    • James Larochelle

      I didn’t see the percentage in that.

    • Andrew

      it might be best if he does

  • Danny Philippi

    Timers ready! Go!

  • Xavier

    I get the feeling that Rollins is going to rub it in Orton’s face that he’s Triple H’s new golden boy now and how he has a briefcase but Orton doesn’t leading to a Orton face turn

    • The Breaker

      I’m not sure that people would get behind Orton as a face, but they are really hating Rollins right now.

    • James Larochelle

      They’ve been building Reigns vs. Orton haven’t they?

  • Gesus Oliver

    We will see how long I’ll be able to stay. We are having bad storms coming through.

    • CJ Blaze

      Glad they are up there for now, they keep saying we will have them but nothing yet.

      • Gesus Oliver

        current estimate 60K people out with power in the area so I just sit here and watch Stephanie cut a promo.

        • CJ Blaze

          Wow!

  • Seth

    ‘The Universe is celebrating that John Cena is the WWE Champion!’—King…YOU LIAR!

    • BlazeKing

      Well, he did say “half”.

      • Seth

        I think half is stretching it.

        • BlazeKing

          Judging the crowd reaction, I’d say it’s a fair assessment. Cena is a safe bet as champ right now.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Punk chants already?

  • ldb

    as bad as RVD has been this time I thought he did good last night.

  • The Breaker

    I hate the way Cena is wearing those titles.

    • Xavier

      Lol oh man

    • Gesus Oliver

      Makes me miss Samoa Joe and Kurt.

  • James Larochelle

    Why did I just get the feeling Flair is the former champ they were hinting at?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because Cena is so close at overtaking Flair’s legacy.

  • Seth

    Lime green lighting…blargh. The way he’s wearing those titles…super blargh.

  • ldb

    When Bryan does come back I bet they blow the roof off.

  • Paul Jameson

    Technically aren’t Cena and Bryan related now…..not by blood…..but….ya know…..

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Close enough. If Nikki and Cena do get married, they’d be in-laws.

  • The Breaker

    Cena sticking up for his “little brother” Daniel kinda annoys me.

  • BlazeKing

    2K15 announcement out of nowhere!!!

  • The Breaker

    Steph dancing to Cena’s music… lol

  • Seth

    Random Video Game plug.

  • Gesus Oliver

    yeyyyy Cena is the face of 2K15!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Who had a better reveal Rusev’s Russian Flag or the 2K15 cover?

    • Seth

      The best reveal is the comedic Putin pictures…

      • Gesus Oliver

        They have been Putin on some quality entertainment.

        • Seth

          Zing!

  • Xavier

    LMAO at Triple H

  • Trapdoor

    Opens with HHH/Orton/Rollins in the ring > Rollins showing off the case to Orton (who’s nursing his head > Rollins: “To bad Randy, should of had a plan b.” > Orton *Smirks* “There is Always a plan b.” Hunter: “Yes. Yes there is.” > New music hits > Out walks Cena.. In a suit!*

    *He could even do a little bit about how The Authority have done not only what’s best for business, but for their fans, as *overnight* they have donated >Insert amount hereInsert Armed Forces charity here< & will be allowing Orton & Rollins extra time, to help make wishes come true.

    - Now if you'll excuse me, my time in happy-shiny-la-la-land is at a close & I must return to reality. ;oD

  • The Breaker

    Apparently Cena went back to Boston and got his old “accent’ back xD

    • Xavier

      I noticed that as well

  • BlazeKing

    Cena’s doing the Dr. of thuganomics walk again!!!

  • Xavier

    This is a really funny exchange between Cena & Triple H

  • Gesus Oliver

    Wow Cena and HHH are fitting HEEL TURN!!!!! BAH GAWD

  • The Breaker

    Fatal Four Way… so it’ll be Cena vs. Orton vs. Kane vs. Rollins.

    EDIT: Well it’s Reigns, I guess. That makes more sense, considering Rollins is feuding with Ambrose.

  • Seth

    So…Hunter and Steph didn’t want Roman in the ladder match…but they let him in a Fatal Fourway Title Match just like that. Oookay then.

    • James Larochelle

      Boggles the mind

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Rule #1: Creative is stupid.

      • Seth

        Rule #2: People have no memories according to WWE.

        • ldb

          Rule # 3: See rule #1

          • Seth

            Rule #4: We must almost always start RAW with a 10+ minute segment. Sometimes it’s entertaining sometimes it isn’t…but we’re like Vegas and gambling, right?

    • The Breaker

      It’s reverse psychology, of course!

      • Seth

        I call bull on that!

  • Xavier

    No messing around for Cena tonight, all business

    • The Breaker

      We were spared of his usual corniness, thankfully.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        BREAKER!!!!!

        • The Breaker

          Oi, Jesse!

          • Seth

            YOU JINXED IT!

          • The Breaker

            Jinxed what? I didn’t see Cena do anything corny.

          • Seth

            His lines about Steph going into crap qualify as corny enough to me.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah, that wasn’t good, but he’s been worse.

  • Danny Philippi

    Color me spellbound. Where does Brock Lesnar fit in?

    • Dustyn

      Guess would be the RAW after Battleground to set up SS.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m calling Heyman declaring The Beast the No. 1 contender and saying that anyone who doesn’t like it can take it up with his client after Battleground.

  • David Jr.

    Sheamus & Usos vs. Wyatt Family? but the Smackdown match was only Sheamus vs. Bray Wyatt.

  • Paul Jameson

    That was…..riveting. Almost as good as…..being pushed into a pool of crap.

  • James Larochelle

    The Authority needs to be taken down a little more. The omnipotence is getting kinda dull

    • The Breaker

      I agree, they’re too powerful.

      • James Larochelle

        Exactly and when they “lose” they don’t sell it. Next night and they’re all smiles as if the loss didn’t matter thereby robbing the face of momentum.

        • The Breaker

          Yep! Cena does the same thing.

  • rschell21

    Bray Wyatt as the next US champ I like it

  • James Larochelle

    Cool! A match we got to see last week!

  • ldb

    we need a vanterminator

    • Scott

      Hell yeah!!!! Been too long!

  • David Jr.

    Was the Crowd chanting ECW or FCW?

    • Seth

      ECW I think.

    • ldb

      E C DUB

      • David Jr.

        I know what they were chanting, it was a joke because Seth Rollins use to be part of FCW.

    • rschell21

      Ecw

  • Scott

    ECW

  • Gesus Oliver

    I just had an issue with a local Promoter. Never knew someone to pass up free publicity and advertising. Either way idiots will be idiots.

  • Seth

    ‘We want Ambrose’ chant.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Will the Authority’s power ever get checked? If so, when and by who?

    • ldb

      I hope it s pretty boring watching them strip the champ or just make impossible matches everytime.

      • Gesus Oliver

        It’s basically Vince without Austin at this point.

        • ldb

          exactly. Austin getting back at the boss is what made that great. remember the prized corvette

          • Gesus Oliver

            How can I forget? Anyone who watches the Network more than 5 mins is reminded.

          • rschell21

            McMahon 3:16 says I just pissed my pants

  • Danny Philippi

    Rollins and Van Dam
    Two ships sailing in the sea
    One northbound, one south.

    • Seth

      If they were two ships…one is speeding off heading toward greener pastures…the other is limping to the glue factory.

    • Gesus Oliver

      two different stages of their career as well. you’re comparing the U-Boat with the IronClad.

  • Gesus Oliver

    I really love how many Ref’s are messing up lately. what makes it so great is the commentators actually calling them on it.

    • Seth

      I hate refs flubbing up so often because it takes away from the match and it is hard enough for the wrestlers to get over as is.

      • Gesus Oliver

        That’s the truth. I think about the hell Fink got at the Legends’ House but he did nothing but help put people over. Ref’s recently are hurting the wrestlers who don’t quite yet know how to overcome the flub.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sounds like a slow show coming off a hot PPV so far…

    • Gesus Oliver

      We got a Cena 2K15 big reveal so far!

      • David Jr.

        It should have been HULK HOGAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is that enough exclamation points?

        • Gesus Oliver

          You need to find a way to get a flex and more exclamation points in there. Brother.

    • The Breaker

      It’s early.

  • savokes

    I’m a little late…but I’m here! It’s true! It’s true!

  • Xavier

    By far the best match RVD has been involved in for years

    • The Breaker

      He was pretty good in the MITB Ladder match too.

      • Xavier

        True, he was able too do his spots

  • Xavier

    I’m still not completely sold on this Rollins heel turn. Seems a little forced

    • Seth

      That’s because Rollins ISN’T a heel. His mannerisms just scream babyface and he’s trying way too hard to be something that’s not in his DNA.

    • The Breaker

      Maybe it would help if his ring gear didn’t make him look like a comic book superhero.

  • The Breaker

    “It’s not arrogance when you back it up”… so Rollins is stealing lines from Ziggler?

  • Gesus Oliver

    Wait did Rollins essentially just steal Ziggler’s catchphrase?

  • Xavier

    Ambrose will haunt your dreams

  • Gesus Oliver

    Good old Uncle Kane.

  • David Jr.

    Seth Rollins entrance theme should be:

    ‘Cause I’ve got a golden ticket
    I’ve got a golden twinkle in my eye

    I never had a chance to shine
    Never a happy song to sing
    But suddenly half the world is mine
    What an amazing thing

    ‘Cause I’ve got a golden ticket

    • Gesus Oliver

      and a bunch of fans trying to rip the briefcase out of his hands?

      • David Jr.

        Only if it’s filled with Everlasting Gobstoppers.

        • Gesus Oliver

          can’t create a candy empire without killing a few kids.

  • The Breaker

    When Ambrose mentioned TNT, I just realized how cool it would be if he could change his entrance music to “TNT” by AC/DC.

    • Gesus Oliver

      Nope!

      • The Breaker

        Haha, I see what you did there.

  • Seth

    Ambrose can haunt anyone and everyone’s dreams…

  • ldb

    Tonight ‘s main event is The Justice League vs Solomon and Grundy

    • James Larochelle

      Solomon AND Grundy?

    • David Jr.

      Solomon Grundy is one person.

  • Danny Philippi

    Dean is the Menace
    Everywhere he speaks, sparks fly.
    Arson, meet its match.

  • Gesus Oliver

    are they really going to feud Bray and Fella?

    • CJ Blaze

      That’s what I’m thinking.

      • Gesus Oliver

        well stop.

        • CJ Blaze

          Would you rather Bray be in something less than a midcard title match?

    • Seth

      If they are…good. It gives both men something to do and I think Sheamus is a hell’va foil for Wyatt.

      • Gesus Oliver

        foil for Wyatt?

        • Seth

          Well think of the character Sheamus is and what he represents…and pair that with who Wyatt is and what he stands for. I think Sheamus makes a perfect foil for Wyatt since Wyatt’s the one they’re going to actively get behind more so.

          • Gesus Oliver

            I don’t understand what the Feud will do. They need to make Sheamus look strong incase something does happen in the Main Event Scene. As well as they can’t hurt Bray who is on his way up. Who gets the rub?

          • Seth

            Besides Roman…what other babyface is there with Daniel Bryan injured and I don’t think Roman and Bray are good for one another at this point. Plus I think there needs to be a little more focus brought into Sheamus as well as potentially add another dimension to his character while getting over how sadistic of a man Bray really is.

          • Gesus Oliver

            Putting Bray further down the card by his inability to actually win in a feud?

          • Seth

            Oh I’d put Bray over in this program but I’d rather have people in distinct programs rather than let someone float. Plus I see potential in these two together in a long term program. I might like Sheamus better as a heel, but since they aren’t turning him…I think this is good use for both to give focus to both men. I’m always a believer that something is better than floating or nothing but if you’re the guy in charge…with who all is available…who would you put him with that doesn’t seem like a ‘downgrade’ to you since Roman and John have different programs.

    • The Breaker

      That’s bad news for Bray if they are. Sheamus is a bit of a step down from Cena.

      • CJ Blaze

        I think WWE screwed themselves by adding an unnecessary PPV between MITB and SS, leaving some guys lost in the shuffle and trying to find storylines for people.

        • The Breaker

          It would also help if they actually gave people storylines outside of those in the title picture.

      • David Jr.

        Isn’t everyone on the roster right now a step down from Cena?

        • The Breaker

          Sadly, this is true.

  • Gesus Oliver

    someone to ask Kendra if the Network is available on Google Chrome.

    • CJ Blaze

      It is

  • Danny Philippi

    Hammer and Sickle.

  • James Larochelle

    Hippos on Parade…it’s Rusev time.

    • ldb

      lmao

  • ldb

    Please someone stop this for July 4th. sake

    • Gesus Oliver

      what about Canada Day Tomorrow?

  • ldb

    Hell yeah. The real american

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Swagger Face Turn!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    A battle of two guys I hate!

  • Xavier

    Lol here comes Colter, too bad he’s still carrying around 285 lbs of dead weight

    • Gesus Oliver

      I love Swagger but at this point he’s Bizzaro Anderson.

      • Xavier

        He’s gonna become Rusev food

        • Gesus Oliver

          Beef Stroganov

  • Andrew

    yes!!!!!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Here we go now Two Heels fighting thrusting Swagger and Zeb into an illogical Face role. to quote a favorite writer here, “BAKKA!”

    • James Larochelle

      It makes total sense. Zeb and Swagger are against foreigners. Rusev and Lana are foreigners badmouthing the USA. What’s illogical is having Zeb and Swagger ignore them because they’re all heels.

      • Gesus Oliver

        I disagree. They’re now having to change their message. You can’t exactly ask a person their green card status without sounding like an uneducated jerk. To cut the promos we have seen for like two years only to change it to be face is a little like okay. They nailed it in this segment but we will see how long it lasts.

  • ldb

    Lets get a We The People chant Going

  • Seth

    Even if it’s not going to be tops on my list of things to see…this is a very good promo by ol Dutch Mantel.

  • savokes

    Man, is it just me, or is anyone else laughing at the “hard look” on Swagger’s face? He’s trying so hard to look tough and intimidating…its funny to me

    • ldb

      don’t be making fun of Biff darn it.

      • savokes

        “why don’t you make like a tree…and get outta here” If Swagger ever said that, i’d pee myself

        • Scott

          HAHAHAHA! Thats about as funny as a screen door on a battleship! Hahaha

        • Paul Jameson

          Only If Zeb slaps him and says “it’s leave. You sound like a damn fool when you say it wrong”

          • Scott

            YEEEESSSSS!!! And he has to hand him the Grays Sports Almanac!!

  • The Breaker

    Despite the fact that no one cares about Swagger, everyone does the “We The People” pledge. So I could see people getting behind a face Swags just because of Zeb Colter.

  • Seth

    ‘Let’s go Swagger’ chant. A very loud one, too.

  • The Breaker

    “Let’s go Swagger”? When is the last time anyone said that?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      NEVER!!!

      • The Breaker

        The only person I’ve seen stick up for Swags is JR, and that probably has a lot to do with the fact that they’re both Oklahomans.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          And Swagger was JR’s last signing.

  • CJ Blaze

    I hope Swagger injures Rusev… that sounds harsh

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Niflheim has thawed… A LETS GO SWAGGER CHANT!!!!

  • Moose

    So Rusev is the next one to be injured by Swagger?

  • Xavier

    Creative has done a good job handling Rusev/Lana so far. It’s getting heat and somehow Swagger is over

    • The Breaker

      Thanks to Vladimir Putin.

      • David F

        Sorry No Rusev is Koslov 2.0 boring! Zeb saved that segment

        • ldb

          Zeb is great. I hope we get to keep him around.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Honestly, he’s one of the all-time greats. He is more than deserving for a HOF nod just on his 40 year career.

          • David F

            He gave Stone Cold his name that alone deserves it

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And his work ethic. The story of what he did to Austin for a bad match was classic! Then you add in mentoring Undertaker, Kane, Sting, Warrior, Abyss, creating the KOs division in TNA, writing 4 hours of TV by himself for 5 years and drawing 15.0 ratings with it… The man is absolutely a top 5 all time for me.

          • David F

            Zeb should make some war references for his time serving Vietnam for this feud

        • The Breaker

          I personally don’t care for Rusev/Lana, but it’s getting a decent reaction.

    • ldb

      Is there one person that ever thought Swags could over that good anytime in the near future? (remember I mean for Swagger) I m impressed.

      • Xavier

        I sure didn’t. That’s a testiment to Zeb on the mic and the heat that Lana is getting for Rusev

        • David Jr.

          Isn’t that the point of a manager?

  • Scott

    Holy crap!!!! Colter and Swagger OWNED that segment!!!

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

    And Swagger’s career get’s saved, for awhile at least

  • Moose

    This was a good time to do this considering the 4th of July is just a few days away.

    • Gesus Oliver

      and Canada Day Tomorrow.

    • Xavier

      Great point

  • Mr. V

    Wow well done wwe.

  • The Breaker

    No one has defeated Rusev, and I don’t think they should end that streak with Swagger.

  • manips

    Pretty cool how they worked with Swagger. Similar to how Sgt. Slaughter became a face in the early 80s.

  • rschell21

    I’d never thought I would here “lets go swagger” chants in my life

    • Gesus Oliver

      hear*

  • Avalanchian

    I’m so on board with Swagger!! Wonder how many matches til he injures Rusev and I don’t have to hear that crap. .

  • David F

    Swagger and Colter should use Us Soccer I believe we can win chant

  • Danny Philippi

    I finally figured out what WWE creative thinks of Raw. Let’s see how we can position Swagger as the lesser of two evils. Also, after the Wyatt Family v. Sheamus and Usos, we do five comedy segments.

  • Paul Jameson

    SWAGGER……..CONCUSS!!!!!!

    • Gesus Oliver

      I was making jokes yesterday about how his finisher should be the Concussion Cutter

  • Seth

    You know what…I think the people just wanted to get behind Zeb’s promos and rantings and if this revitalizes Swagger…cool. It means more options. Even if I’m not thrilled by the idea of Rusev vs Swagger…I’m also not pessimistic about it either if you give Zeb a microphone.

  • rschell21

    Hartford WERE HERE!!!!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    DEB!!

  • raffe

    Wow it takes along time for the results to appear on the page.

    • CJ Blaze

      Well it takes awhile to write live coverage and update it.

      • raffe

        The other pro wrestling websites has it much quicker.

        • CJ Blaze

          Then stay on those sites.

          • raffe

            It’s called freedom of speech and well i was going to sign up to be a premium member of this site but not anymore thank you for saving my money I will just ‘stay on those sites’.

          • Gesus Oliver

            Take care buddy!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Kendra prides herself on accuracy on the promos, so when there is a lot of talking, some updates can take a bit. Please bear with her.

    • Gesus Oliver

      This show airs live too. Rome wasn’t built in a day.

  • Bryan

    Something weird just happened. I was entertained by a Swagger segment.

  • Danny Philippi

    It pays to have flashlight option on your cell phones.

  • Moose

    I feel old. In my day, people used lighters LOL!

  • savokes

    The cell phone lights actually add a good bit of creepiness to his entrance

  • rschell21

    I just hope they give bray a shot at the us title I think if they did that it would help make the belt more legitimate

  • Gesus Oliver

    Yey we are getting more of WWE being formulaic. There’s no point of getting invested in the start of a match. It’ll just be cut off by commercial. No point in paying attention for the :15-:45 minutes either.

    • The Breaker

      That’s why you have to watch the WWE App!

  • Danny Philippi

    For those thinking about changing channels to our competition, their show is already in the can. Mick Foley, who wrestled for us as Cactus Jack, is going to win their world title. That’ll put buts in the seat.

  • rschell21

    Has anyone noticed how much Harper looks like bruiser brody

    • The Breaker

      Yep!

    • Moose

      I thought i read somewhere that was the look he was going for.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’s because he molded his Indy career on him. His name was even Brody Lee.

      • rschell21

        Oh yeah completely forgot about that

  • Seth

    YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

  • Danny Philippi

    Call me out if I think Usos v. Harper/Rowan is not like Hardy Boyz v. Dudleys circa 1999-2000.

  • CJ Blaze

    So apparently Brad Maddox has uploaded another video of him and he’s “still stuck in the cave”.

    • ldb

      If hes not stuck there he does a good job making it look real. Is the cave in Places Unknown

  • savokes

    Sometimes I think WWE tells Sheamus to wear pants, long sleeve shirts and a mask in the summer to keep up with his pasty white complexion…he pops off the screen standing next to the darker skinned bodied Uso’s

    • James Larochelle

      They don’t need to tell him. He knows it’s his gimmick

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sheamus is one of the few guys left with the old school mentality of living your gimmick. It’s a shame, really, that more don’t. It would make for a better product.

        • Gesus Oliver

          Are you saying Bo doesn’t Bolieve in real life?

          • David Jr.

            If Bo doesn’t Bolieve in real life, I just should stop watching wrestling.

    • Gesus Oliver

      It’s the gimmick.

    • savokes

      I know it’s the gimmick…I was making a slight, yet ineffective “stating the obvious” joke…i have much to learn in that department…teach me your ways Gesus

      • Gesus Oliver

        Talking to yourself?

        • savokes

          I was told it was ok until i start answering myself

          • Gesus Oliver

            atta boy blue atta boy.

  • Seth

    Harper just looks like he belongs when he’s opposite Sheamus just looking at little things like that.

  • rschell21

    I hope the former champion that shows up tonight is Y2J, Even though its probly lesnar, I still Bolieve he can save us.

    • Scott

      Still calling The Miz

      • David Jr.

        My bet is on Ric Flair.

        • Xavier

          I’m saying Big Show

          • Gesus Oliver

            who ever it is, it’ll be SHOCKING!

          • Scott

            UNCLE FRED!!!

          • rschell21

            As long as its not bootista

          • savokes

            *bluetista

    • The Breaker

      I don’t think Lesnar shows up until after Battleground.

      • Alex

        Since you don’t think it’s Lesnar do you have a guess as to who it might be?

        • The Breaker

          I honestly believe it’ll be Miz. I’m hoping for Y2J though.

          • Alex

            Miz would be trollish unless they plan to push him heavy again(which doesn’t really interest me.) Y2J would be a nice surprise.

  • James Larochelle

    Disrespect by the fans

  • The Breaker

    Why the JBL chants?

  • Danny Philippi

    Sweet Tea Music

    • ldb

      I miss Sweet T

  • Seth

    Really fans? THIS IS WHY YOU CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS!

  • Gesus Oliver

    WWE returns to Montreal for Raw next week!

    • James Larochelle

      I wish I could go.

      • Gesus Oliver

        why can’t you?

    • rschell21

      Bret hart appearance possibly

  • Xavier

    Really good six man tag here

    • Seth

      Wicked fun professional wrestling match.

      • Xavier

        Agreed

  • Danny Philippi

    Guess the next hour’s going to suck!

  • ldb

    So the Wyatts beat the Usos as long as the belts arent on the line? It was a good match.

  • Xavier

    We only have 368 comments?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Slow night, and I’ve only been on 30 minutes, really.

      • Gesus Oliver

        have no fear GESUS is here!

        • savokes

          if only you had a cool theme song….

          • Gesus Oliver

            I am the face of WNW 2K15

          • David Jr.

            I’m the liver.

          • Gesus Oliver

            settle down there fight club.

          • David Jr.

            You broke the first rule.

          • Gesus Oliver

            I’m better than this. GET IT TOGETHER GESUS!

  • The Breaker

    Uso got his head taken off! The Usos and Harper-Rowan always have great matches.

    • Gesus Oliver

      Wyatt’s should be tag champs.

      • The Breaker

        Things are working all right with The Usos. I don’t see the need to change the titles yet. But The Wyatts will be tag champs eventually.

  • ldb

    Man I feel like there’s been more commercial time than match time. Are they longer than usual?

    • Moose

      I’m feeling that too. However, I usually watch this much later on DVR and fast forward through them, so basically it’s my fault.

  • Vic Jose

    Batistas back I’m guessing

  • Danny Philippi

    Favorite Summertime WCW Pay Per View:
    A) Great American Bash
    B) Bash at the Beach
    C) Hog Wild
    D) Only watched WCW Monday Nitro

    • Gesus Oliver

      E) Greed

    • David Jr.

      C) even though there was only one Hog Wild, the other 3 were Road Wild because WCW’s gate for the four shows was $0

  • rschell21

    Wooo I Bolieve

  • The Breaker

    It’s Bo Time!

  • Scott

    Crossing my fingers for a BO-NER chant!!!

  • savokes

    Tebow?

    • Gesus Oliver

      teBOw

      • savokes

        crap! missed that opportunity as well, I am SO dropping the ball tonight…

        • Gesus Oliver

          Get it BOgether man!

  • The Breaker

    He’s Te-BO-ing!

  • Moose

    …and the poster child for mental illness takes the stage.

  • Seth

    He’s Tebowing. Dammit! Just when I thought that term was away from my life…

    • Gesus Oliver

      teBOw!

      • Seth

        Dammit!

  • Xavier

    I’m actually starting to dig this Bolieve gimmick

    • The Breaker

      He’s been knocking it out of the park!

      • Xavier

        Agreed

    • Taylor

      Its so good

    • rschell21

      Another fellow BOner

  • Taylor

    I love Bo! He went the full 60 sec. Incredible!

  • Danny Philippi

    Daniel Bryan’s promo did not do it for me last night. Almost as bad as a John Cena fruity pebbles promo.

    • The Breaker

      It wasn’t terrible, but I think he did come off as being too complacent over the fact that he’s not going to be able to compete.

  • ldb

    Bo’s eyes really freak me out when he smiles big

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bo is really working this gimmick. I am slowly being won over!

    • Dustyn

      Same with me. I didn’t care for it when he debuted, but it’s growing on me!

    • Gesus Oliver

      bowly*

    • The Breaker

      I’ve been loving him ever since he turned heel on NXT.

    • Malboja

      I think it works really well
      For a “happy ” guy he has a real sinister look when things don’t go his way

  • Xavier

    I was really impressed with my girl Naomi last night. She held her own

    • CJ Blaze

      She did a great job, hope she gets the belt soon.

      • Gesus Oliver

        after a lengthy reign from Paige yes.

        • CJ Blaze

          Yes

          • Gesus Oliver

            Yes!

          • CJ Blaze

            YES!

          • Gesus Oliver

            YES!

  • Seth

    Nikki looks too damn happy for someone going into a handicap match…

    • Gesus Oliver

      SHH! Details.

      • Seth

        I’M A DETAIL FREAK! WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME!?

        • Gesus Oliver

          detail freak was such a terrible parody.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I think she’s happy to be interrupting BO!

      • Seth

        Even I can’t BO-LEVE that.

    • Xavier

      Well Naomi has Cameron with her so in a way Naomi is being handicapped as well so technically it’s 1 on 1 match

      • Seth

        I just would’ve liked to see a little more urgancy. But…hey…it’s Naomi wrestling. I can’t whine too much.

  • ldb

    who wouldn’t be happy to face the Funkadactlys in a handicap match.

    • Xavier

      AMEN, make this post of the night Jesse lol.

  • The Breaker

    I have no interest in a Naomi/Cameron feud. Give me more Paige vs. Naomi.

  • Moose

    That was hard to watch.

  • CJ Blaze

    Naomi looked so thrilled about winning

  • Jesse Sherwood

    CATFIGHT!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hoping BNB’s isn’t too bad off, but with a title status, that surely means he’s stripped of it.

    • Gesus Oliver

      Yey! Let’s hope for another tournament!

      • Gesus Oliver

        worse yet, Battle Royal!

      • David Jr.

        Only if it’s in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    • Seth

      I’m kind’a hoping he can use this and troll the people a little with it by being a jerk heel.

    • Avalanchian

      Let Ziggler have the title.

    • The Breaker

      The IC title is cursed. It’s like no one who holds it benefits anymore.

      • CJ Blaze

        It’s mainly creative’s fault. Axel and Big E had good runs but once they lost it, they were back floating around in the land of the lost.

        • The Breaker

          Yeah, Creative doesn’t seem to have any kind of long-term plan for anyone outside of the main event.

  • The Breaker

    I mean, the Funkadactyls breaking up will only be good for Naomi, but of course WWE can’t end a team without making them feud first.

    • CJ Blaze

      Yeah go figure. Naomi could squash Cameron on Superstars and no one would care or ask what happened to that feud?

      • The Breaker

        It’s not like WWE really ever maintains consistency within the Divas Division anyway.

  • Taylor

    Save us Y2J

    • Vic Jose

      Probably Batista lol

      • Gesus Oliver

        Bluetista*

        • savokes

          I did that one earlier…great minds think alike!

          • Gesus Oliver

            we are so simpatico.

  • rschell21

    I hope Barrett isn’t to bad off if they have to strip him though I say give cesaro a run with the ic title if they do

  • Stephen Cash

    I hope they do an IC title tournament!!!! With some main event players. Like Sheamus, Reigns, Randy Orton…

  • Gesus Oliver

    My Wife just red carded me :(

  • Danny Philippi

    BNB on IR?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “Number of months.” Snake bit… :(

    • Seth

      Dammit… :(

    • The Breaker

      And people were starting to get behind him too! What terrible luck. I feel bad for him.

  • Vic Jose

    A battleroyal?

  • Xavier

    Swagger shouldn’t even have a spot on the roster honestly. Zeb is completely carrying him

    • Avalanchian

      How un-American of you. He’s our only hope to beat Rusev.

  • Moose

    Geez, a battle royal?

  • Stephen Cash

    I hope it’s a elimination battle royal… Over the top should only be done at the rumble.

  • Xavier

    Cesaro has gained nothing from being with Heyman.

    • The Breaker

      Well he hasn’t been given any kind of storyline, so how is Heyman supposed to do anything substantial for him if all he does is wrestle random opponents?

      • Xavier

        Well Heyman didn’t do much for Ryback or Axel either when they had storylines so….

        • The Breaker

          It takes two to get over. Heyman can’t get someone over that doesn’t have it.

    • savokes

      keep calling him the “king of swing” yet i can’t remember the last time i saw him swing anyone….once being partnered with Heyman

  • Gesus Oliver

    too many numbers Heyman you lost me!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    They remixed Cesaro’s theme.

  • Vic Jose

    Barrett seems injury prone

    • Dustyn

      Wonder if it’s the same arm from his previous injury.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It is.

  • Stephen Cash

    Seriously, though… How many people does Swagger have to severely injure to get fired… It’s extremely contradictory for them to de push Kofi and fire Kennedy (I understand they were higher teir people) and keep swagger… It’s pathetic

    • Scott

      I really dont blame Swagger for that one. He didnt put much into it. It was the way Barrett went into the barricade himself

      • Vic Jose

        I agree with Scott

      • Stephen Cash

        Fine… It still took Kennedy and Kofi one time… Swagger has injured people multiple times. They need to change his gimmick to “The Career Killer”

  • Gesus Oliver

    I’d love to see them utilize Barret back in his speaking on the scissor lift part of the gimmick again.

  • Gesus Oliver

    I love how all these people knew about an announcement that was just made. Thanks Kofi and Heyman!

    • Stephen Cash

      They can hear the announcement too…. I don’t understand your confusion…

  • Xavier

    For a second I really thought Kofi was winning last night. A lot of close calls in that MITB match, easily the MITB match since WM22. WWE should go back to having 6 wrestlers involved only. It’s no coincidence that WM21, WM22 and last night’s MITB match were the best MITB matches

    • The Breaker

      For a few seconds there, they totally had me believing Kofi was going to win. It was so weird.

      • Xavier

        Lol me too. I love when the WWE teases those types of things, it adds a sense of realism to the matches. I remember when Santino almost won the Royal Rumble in 2011 or when he almost survived Bryan at EC 2012 or when Jeff Hardy almost pulled off the upset over Taker in that RAW ladder match in 2002

  • Taylor

    They are using the battle royal gimmick way too much lately. IC tourney would have been much better

    • Gesus Oliver

      They’re using tournaments and the BR gimmick wayyyyy toooo much.

    • Vic Jose

      They just did one of those too practically

  • ldb

    Zeb and Heyman make me miss managers like bobby the brain, jimmy hart, mr. fugi

    • Seth

      I just had flashbacks of Fuji throwing salt at people.

    • Xavier

      Heenan was the greatest

      • David Jr.

        Jimmy Hart and I agree with you.

  • Seth

    Swing tease and no swing. Angry fans be angry!

    • The Breaker

      Finally, he stops doing the crowd-pleasing moves. If you’re going to be a heel, wrestle like one.

      • Seth

        JR went on a rant about how there aren’t any true heels anymore and I tend to agree with that. I kind’a miss people getting the drawing type of heel heat that sticks.

        • The Breaker

          It’s funny how the biggest heels aren’t even wrestlers. Heyman, Vickie, Steph, ect.

  • rschell21

    I guess kofi is now the Coco B Ware of this generation

    • Jesse Sherwood

      A good midcard guy that doesn’t have the skills for much more? I agree.

    • David Jr.

      I heard Kofi’s new entrance theme is comparing love to a Hurricanrana.

  • Danny Philippi

    Cesaro as Intercontinental Champion would do both an injustice.

    • CJ Blaze

      Why?

  • Seth

    Damn you voldermort! You strike again!

  • Stephen Cash

    Heyman has cm punk and Lesnar, but also Cesaro (hasn’t help at all/maybe hurt), Ryback, and Axel against his record… That’s 2-3… Sounds like a bad manager…

  • Xavier

    WTF, we missed the finish??

  • savokes

    end of a match during commercial??

  • CJ Blaze

    Did they really end that match on the app??

  • Vic Jose

    Really? Cesaro loses during the break? So stupid

  • Jesse Sherwood

    THAT IS SOME BS!!! Ending a match on the app is sacrilege!

  • The Breaker

    The ENDING TO THE MATCH came during commercial?! They seriously did that?!

  • Taylor

    Lol Kofi gets a big win and its on the app.

    • Vic Jose

      lol

  • Moose

    Please tell me that was a screw up to have a match end during commercial.

  • The Breaker

    And Kofi beat Cesaro and they showed it during commercial? What the heck is up with that?

  • savokes

    I guess it wasn’t as important as the post match beatdown….thats some crap!

  • Seth

    If you’re going to end the match on the app, the least you can do is GIVE US AN IMMEDIATE REPLAY!

  • Scott

    WHAT THE HECK!?!?!?! We missed the finish!!!!!! ??????

  • Avalanchian

    At least we get to see Cesaro having a hissy fit.

  • Danny Philippi

    Told you guys earlier this hour was going to suck. Did I?

  • savokes

    Wonder what happened to Cole

    • Scott

      I think he got hit legit. He looked pissed

  • Scott

    Oh God this is already bad

  • Scott

    WAIT WHAT?!?!?! WWE PROMOTING ALCOHOL????

    • Moose

      I was thinking the same thing!

    • Scott

      Guess Vince is trying to make that money back by any means necessary!

    • savokes

      Well, in recent times that SCSA has returned, he’s done his beer drinking shtick…

      • Scott

        Yeah but they dont dedicate an entire segment to pitch alcohol (especially a specific brand)

      • Moose

        True, but it wasn’t a blatant paid advertising like we just saw.

  • The Breaker

    Shameless plug!

  • Paul Jameson

    And the vinnie Mac “anything can happen at anytime” strikes again courtesy of the wwe app. Sad

  • KURT

    Damn awesome crowd

  • Seth

    That woman absolutely looked unenthusiastic during that part.

  • BlazeKing

    Twisted Tea?!?! That’s not PG!!!!!!

  • Stephen Cash

    WWE definitely ruined something special with Paige and Emma…

  • savokes

    And they’re going to another commercial….they must need 40 minutes of straight air time for something

  • Vic Jose

    So whos the big mystery return next?

    • The Breaker

      They said he’s a “social media crossover star” or something, so that confirms my suspicion that it’s going to be Miz.

      • Vic Jose

        Oh yeah must be

    • Avalanchian

      CM Punk…. It is not

  • Taylor

    Orton wrestling with 8 staples is pretty impressive. Lets see how many bumps he takes

    • Scott

      12

      • Taylor

        True 12

  • ldb

    saw some old Vic Grimes matches on on youtube and would have loved to seen that guy in wwe during his prime. Key was gone so fast I don’t count that. He was the sickest mobile big man in a while.

  • Danny Philippi

    What interrupts the water pressure in the United States more, halftime in the Super bowl or the second hour of WWE Raw since Raw went three hours?

  • Vic Jose

    McMahon!

  • savokes

    VINCE!!!!!

  • rschell21

    He’s back

  • Jesse Sherwood

    VINCE!!!

  • Stephen Cash

    Twisted Lemonade does sound pretty good now that I think about it…

    • Vic Jose

      I think Vince had some lol

  • The Breaker

    VINCE!!

  • savokes

    oohhhhhhhhh

  • Vic Jose

    Oh no

  • Xavier

    HOLY CRAP Sandow trolled the hell out of us lol

  • Dustyn

    Trolled!

  • The Breaker

    HAHAHA WE GOT TROLLED!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    SANDOW TROLL!!!

  • Moose

    Noooooooooooooo!!!!

  • savokes

    they got us all!

  • rschell21

    Yes now sandow has really done it

  • Avalanchian

    Lol Vince Sandow

  • Dustyn

    This is good!

  • Scott

    Genetic Jackhammer!!!

  • savokes

    “McMahondow”!!!

  • KURT

    Old champ must be Lesnar or CM Punk lol.

  • Taylor

    Nailed the strut to the ring

  • CJ Blaze

    Vince is backstage laughing his butt off

  • The Breaker

    I’ve not been a fan of what they’re doing with Sandow… but he’s been going all in on everything they’ve thrown at him. And this one is just flat out hysterical!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sandow has good VKM impersonation!

  • Scott

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

  • Stephen Cash

    Sandow is my pick for the batte royal now

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    This one almost made his weekly gimmick thing worth it, that is pretty funny.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    NOOOOOOOO!!!! KHALI!

  • Vic Jose

    Oh no

  • Xavier

    A Khali sighting

  • The Breaker

    And… here comes the squash.

  • Vic Jose

    There’s our former champ

  • Seth

    FML Great Khali is still here… WHY!? WHY!? WHAT!? WHY!? NO!

  • ldb

    I hope he stuns him.

  • Vic Jose

    The limo was for Sandow?

  • savokes

    that…was…pathetic

  • Xavier

    Sandow is now 24 feet under lol

  • Andrew

    ugh!!!! this is teribble

  • Roger

    Man when was the last time Khali was on TV? Geez I can’t remember. I’m probably the only one that can’t remember.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Dec 30, 2013.

    • Seth

      The last time I truly remember…was when Sandow had that series of crappy matches with Khali. God…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Khali can get STUFFED!!!

    • Seth

      I said a heck of a lot more…colorful language than just stuffed to my television. I think I just made a sailor faint.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I would if I didn’t have my kids tonight!

  • savokes

    Here we go….

  • Moose

    Buzzkill…

  • Stephen Cash

    McMahon should fire Khali… This is pathetic…

    • Xavier

      Khali is the reason why the WWE secured a TV deal in Southeast Asia. Southeast Asia is one of the biggest regions in the world.

  • The Breaker

    Sandow has been pushed down so deep that even the Great Khali looks like a serious competitor when he goes up against him.

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Anyone else notice how much muscle mass Khali lost? I mean, he’s still huge, but he’s definitely got a gut going on right now.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’s the donuts from the force!

    • Xavier

      Looks like he aged a bit as well

    • Scott

      Everytime I see Khali I think of Get Smart with Steve Carrell saying “Thaaaaaats a bad guy! Did you see his face????? His head looks like one of the Easter Island heads!!!!”

  • Vic Jose

    More commercials!

  • savokes

    seriously….this night has bee n more commercials than anything

  • Dustyn

    Final thoughts on who it is?

  • David Jr.

    I think who ever guessed the Miz is going to be right, the way Jerry Lawler just described him.

    • Vic Jose

      We got 2 former champs now with Khali

    • The Breaker

      Cole called John Cena the greatest champion ever last night, so I’m prepared for they say to be a gross exaggeration.

  • mike

    Absolutely love the finish to ceasaro and kofi i dont care pg fake this type of aggression is what wwe needs to have more often in my opinion ,if a person for the first time turned to wwe at that moment and saw just that segment they would think ceasaro was beast and wwe was hardcore ,also much respect to kofi the man does what he has to do to keep his job hope someday he gets his duh with a world title

  • Scott

    Seriously Im about commercialed out

  • Danny Philippi

    Welcome to Raw is COMMERCIALS. No, wait. It is Raw is …

  • Stephen Cash

    This is too big for Miz… I’m guessing either Jericho or Lesnar…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It could be “Dixie Hype”…

      • Stephen Cash

        Lol… I just don’t see it.

      • Seth

        BAKA hype.

      • Vic Jose

        They are trying to out hype Dixie? lol

    • Vic Jose

      Lesnar isn’t even on social media but Bluetista is

  • rschell21

    I did not miss the miz at all

    • Avalanchian

      Really? Really? Really? Really? Really?

  • Dustyn

    Still going with Jericho. It’ll be a let down if it’s Miz, unless Flair is with him.

  • savokes

    Alright alright…I’ve left yhou all hanging too long. It’s me guys!!!! I AM HERE! (and at RAW)

  • Vic Jose

    Awesome?

  • Stephen Cash

    Could be flair

  • Scott

    Miz….calling it

  • Dustyn

    No!!

  • Stephen Cash

    WWE blew it…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Called the DIXIE HYPE for Miz!

    • Vic Jose

      At least wwe knows how to hype

  • Dustyn

    Crowd is dead.

  • Scott

    And the crowd goes flat…..

  • savokes

    He’s the next IC Champ…calling it now

  • Stephen Cash

    No one cares… Lol

  • Danny Philippi

    White cherry on top of this suckfest!

    • Scott

      Yup

  • Moose

    Ehh, maybe someone will come out that’s worth the hype?

  • Stephen Cash

    I like the gimmick change

  • Dustyn

    A second return (Flair, Jericho)?

    • Vic Jose

      Doubtful

      • Dustyn

        Still doubtful? ; )

  • Scott

    Marine 4 and blockbuster in the same sentence? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  • Taylor

    Well here’s your next IC Champ

  • Stephen Cash

    The Miz needs to go back to The Challenge. He was tolerable there

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The actor gimmick will work for him. He already has the a**hole personality!

  • David Jr.

    The next WWE pay-per-view being Battleground, interesting fact about the first Battleground, it had the 2nd lowest pre-WWE Netowrk buyrate of any WWE ppv. Anyone know what the lowest is? (I do know)

  • savokes

    Love it when you can see someones spray on orange tan…put your hands down Miz, no one wants to see that garbage

  • Vic Jose

    What!

  • Andrew

    yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    JERICHO!!!!

    • Stephen Cash

      How is that Dixie Hype…?

  • Dustyn

    YES!!

  • savokes

    Y2J!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Moose

    Y2J!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Scott

    YES!!!!!!!!

  • Vic Jose

    Wwe played us!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    GET HYPED PEOPLE!!!

  • rschell21

    Yes yes yes

  • Stephen Cash

    Marking out!!!! Yes!!!! I LOVE JERICHO!!!!!

  • Avalanchian

    Wrinkle his face a bit more and The Miz could pass for Steve Buscemi

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The SEXY BEAST is BACK!

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      I wasn’t gone from the chat for that long, was I?

  • James Larochelle

    Yes!!!!

  • BlazeKing

    Now that’s how you troll!!!

  • Roger

    I recognized Chris Jericho’s pyro right away, and I was like ohh sh*t!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Woo! Someone worth watching!

  • Scott

    MANY EXPLETIVES HAVE COME FROM MY MOUTH EXPRESSING MY GRATITUDE FOR THIS MOMENT!!!

  • Seth

    Here comes CHRIS JERICHO! A Jericho-Miz program…you know what…good choice.

  • Xavier

    Really not all that exicted too see Jericho again. His last run was a major flop. Hopefully this run will be better

    • David Jr.

      At least he had some good matches.

    • James Larochelle

      I’d say the same for RVD but I actually like Jericho so I’m glad to see him.

      • Xavier

        I agree about RVD as well. Atleast Jericho can talk. I’ll give Jericho/Miz a chance

  • rschell21

    Can you say 10 time Ic champ

  • Danny Philippi

    THANK GOD! It’s over (the suckfest)! For now.

  • ldb

    guy in the red hat holding his was awesome

  • Vic Jose

    Jericho saved Raw again!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      #SaveUS

  • Moose

    Sadly, the Brooklyn Brawler could have returned and been more refreshing than the Miz.

  • savokes

    Oh no…hopefully he doesn’t do that no talking gimmick again…..hahah

  • Stephen Cash

    Strapping Jericho with the IC title would be a great move to restore prestige… Also Miz has to feel like a failure after this reaction…

  • Stevie Klaus

    That’s how a champ returns!!!

  • Stephen Cash

    That was pretty good Miz

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Miz’s worked shoot tonight has been better than almost anything else he has done on the mic.

    • Stephen Cash

      I have never seen ANY potential in the Miz before tonight.

    • Xavier

      Did you ever see Miz’s promo right before the Royal Rumble 2010? Great shoot, you should check it out

  • Stephen Cash

    Saw that coming!

  • Seth

    ‘I’M A—’*THUD* Good night.

  • savokes

    DEP!

  • Seth

    DEP!

  • Xavier

    Wow now this is getting good

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

    Run!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Y2J vs. Bray?!?! FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Moose

    I’m hooked now

  • Vic Jose

    It gets better!

  • Stephen Cash

    Holy shit holy shit!!!!!

  • Dustyn

    This should be a good feud!

  • savokes

    Now HERE’S a program for Bray! just imagine the mic work that is coming

  • Taylor

    Bray v. Jericho!! Yes!!!

  • Xavier

    This is a great segment now. Wasn’t expecting this at all. Poor Miz though lol.

  • Andrew

    interesting!!!!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Wyatt versus Jericho, now that’s something I want to see!

  • Stephen Cash

    Bray vs Jericho is what’s best for business!

  • Roger

    Man this is really good, I thought Miz and Jericho was gonna be decent but this is excellent!

    • Xavier

      Lol same here

  • Scott

    The Eater of Worlds vs The Best in the World At What He Does!!!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I think he can just be “The Best in the World” now.

      • Scott

        I didnt want to make Voldemort fans butthurt

  • savokes

    This is how you go from Bray vs Cena to another feud without breaking his momentum

    • Xavier

      But wait, according to the experts Cena beating Wyatt would bury him

      • savokes

        Hah….If only Cubed was here to defend himself ;)

        • Cubed56

          ha, just watched raw after a long night at work, and was scrolling the comments and seen this one. Gotta say I’m glad to see you can talk trash when the person your talking about isnt around, ;) just playing. Anyways, does Bray feel like he has the same momentum he had? Personally I don’t feel like he does, hes kinda in limbo and is staying afloat with his mic work, but that’s just my opinion. Is feuding with Jericho reaaly a BIG thing for Bray? Everybody and their brother has beaten Jericho in the last few years, it honestly means nothing, Fandango and Ryback are perfect examples.

      • savokes

        I’m just super excited for all the mic work this program will bring

      • Cubed56

        lol, if this was a dig at me, well played sir. Do you honestly think this is a BIG feud for Bray though? Like i said below, everyone and their brother has beaten Jericho over the last couple years, its basically to the point where beating Jericho is not a big deal and basically does nothing for you.

    • David F

      Bray v Jericho at Summerslam book it

  • Seth

    Not great for Miz there but holy crap. I HAVE GOOSEBUMPS!

  • Danny Philippi

    That segment went from 0 to 80 mph in six seconds flat. Like a Lamborghini.

  • Dustyn

    Wonder if his return has been planned for a while, if it’s something recent (Bryan being out still)?

  • James Larochelle

    Did not see any of that coming. As others have said, poor Miz. He was just the setup for the swerve.

  • ldb

    Best segment for sure. What a different night. Jericho ‘s back then Bray, and on the same night we have a big Lets go Swagger Chant. I hope some checked the thermostat in Hades.

    • Scott

      I know right!!

  • Stephen Cash

    Actual question though… I saw Jericho’s return tonight reported elsewhere, why didn’t WNW?

    • Vic Jose

      Where? He teased returning yesterday but was kidding about it obviously

      • Vic Jose

        Oh

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because we couldn’t get true confirmation before press time. We don’t report without at least two sources to keep rumors off the site.

      • CJ Blaze

        Exactly. Reporting stuff like that can actually lead to WWE scrapping their plans because it leaked.

        • David Jr.

          Surprises are better, and besides Chris Jericho is known for making up stories, so he could say one thing and mean another.

      • Stephen Cash

        Awesome! I wasn’t hating. I was just interested in the process.

  • Peteya56

    I love the line by JBL,
    “Things have changed since you left, Chris”

  • Dustyn

    Hope he sticks around for a while.

  • Kelusion

    Damn, Y2J is back!~!!!!! Much better then what they were going further with Miz, coming back. OMG.

  • Vic Jose

    Dixie that is what “major” means and that is how you hype something, take notes! lol

  • Xavier

    If Ziggler loses here he might as well call it a career

    • Moose

      Sad, but true.

    • Seth

      He’s not even wearing his own t-shirt. I think he’s already close to that point.

    • savokes

      I mean, does anyone in the back hear that HUGE pop he just got?

      • Xavier

        Concussions are hindering him at this point apparently

        • savokes

          mmmmm, true

  • Avalanchian

    Zigglypuff

  • David F

    Y2J is back to put Bray over that is awesome. Y2J always puts over the younger talent. He is a legend

  • Andrew

    ill calll that summer rae comes out and possibly gets paired with dolph we’ll see

    • Vic Jose

      Called it right!

      • Andrew

        ha i get lucky sometimes

    • Moose

      You win!

    • Xavier

      I could see that

  • Scott

    I expect a mult-match feud between Jericho and Bray. Jericho will win one of the matches Im sure, then Bray will get the clean rub

  • rschell21

    Zigglyrae

    • Peteya56

      CLASSIC!!!

  • Vic Jose

    Damn Dolph gets to make out with everyone!

  • savokes

    “Zigglypuff, I chooose yooouuuuuu”
    -Summer Rae

  • Vic Jose

    At least Dolph is finally doing something

  • Stephen Cash

    Wwe seems to be interested in Ziggler again these past couple of weeks

    • Scott

      I think the audience is starting to not give them a choice

  • David F

    Cmon WWE listen to fans big pops for Ziggs.. Push him dammit

    • Vic Jose

      They are going to be careful with that after Daniel Bryan, all Dolph needs is another bad concussion to ruin a good push.

      • David F

        but thats bad lesson to talent. Get a Concussion and your push is over. Shouldnt it be about protecting the talent and not punishing them

      • Moose

        Just keep him out of the ring with ADR and Thwagger.

  • Danny Philippi

    Hope Dolph and Summer aren’t another Dolph and AJ storyline.

    • Vic Jose

      Well it worked for AJ lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And guys, don’t forget that Fozzy has a new album out this month called “Do You Wanna Start A War”. I’ve been listening to the previews as they have been released, and if you love 80s, 90s, early 00s rock, this will be a great album for you!

    • David Jr.

      Is there a song called Waka! Waka! ?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        *Groan*

        • David Jr.

          Hey that’s what Fozzy was good at telling bad jokes.

  • Vic Jose

    Love Vickies finale

  • Vic Jose

    Rematch time

    • Vic Jose

      Called it

  • rschell21

    Stardust

    • Vic Jose

      GoldStar!

  • Xavier

    This is by far the best theme music Cody has ever had lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I already bought it on iTunes!

  • James Larochelle

    Looks like Axel realized the singlet looked awful on him

    • Vic Jose

      That it did

    • Seth

      I THINK…emphasis on the word think…it was a tribute to his Grandfather in a way for one night. I can’t say that for sure though.

      • Vic Jose

        Why, something happen to him?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          No, but Axel has been all about honoring his family in various ways. It wouldn’t surprise me.

  • Seth

    I honestly think at this point that Cody Rhodes can get just about anything to work at this point.

    • Scott

      Cody is very fortunate to have Dustin by his side to help him with this gimmick. Dustin is a master of becoming a character. Alot of talent could learn a thing or two from him. Highly underrated in my humble opinion.

      • Seth

        Austin said when he saw Dustin that he actually has veins in his arms now too. He’s putting on some of the finest matches of his career I think and that’s saying a ton because he’s been a damn good performer.

        • Scott

          DDP Yoga has resurrected his career! Its truly a treat to watch him work at this level again!

  • rschell21

    I hope ryback turns face when rybaxel breaks up cause I actually miss the feed me more gimmick

  • CJ Blaze

    Well there’s feed me more

  • Jesse Sherwood

    A “Feed Me More” Chant! It’s Bizzaro world!

    • James Larochelle

      Fans like to chant anything.

  • Vic Jose

    WWE needs more than 4 tag teams

    • rschell21

      I say Heath slater and Adam rose form a team

    • CJ Blaze

      Well they technically have 5, but I know what you mean.

  • Vic Jose

    Sweet Paige is next

  • Andrew

    any want to predict a return here? i think aj lee returns here but who knows

    • Vic Jose

      Why not, she’s a former “champ” too

    • rschell21

      You win

  • Moose

    I’ve enjoyed JBL tonight. “They’re out to lunch.”

    • James Larochelle

      He has his moments.

      • Moose

        I agree!

  • David Jr.

    So Paige is next, what are the odds her opponent is Alicia Fox?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I think she is going to call out Emma for a NXT rematch on the main roster! *Dreams*

      • David Jr.

        I do hope its anybody but Alicia Fox.

  • rschell21

    Crazy night we get 3 different diva segments tonight

    • Vic Jose

      Nothing wrong with that

      • rschell21

        Ik just saying we never get that

  • savokes

    (just one man’s opinion) But I think it speaks volumes about a worker who can change their whole entire gimmick time and time again, and also create different move sets to gel with said new gimmick. Even if they look slightly like other moves, the subtlety of using the same set-up for the “disaster-kick” for a finishing move, to a flying clothesline as part of a move set that that defines the new gimmick/character is really a testament to Cody as a worker

  • Jesse Sherwood

    It looks like WWE is trying to emphasize the Divas Division again.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    AJ!!! POP X1000!!!

  • Vic Jose

    She’s back! And not preggo

  • Paul Jameson

    Definitely not preggers

  • savokes

    HOLY CRAP

  • Andrew

    called it!

  • Moose

    Best RAW in a WHILE!!!

  • Vic Jose

    Paige needs to beat her cleanly

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Voldemort chants!

  • savokes

    Here come the punk chants

  • Gesus Oliver

    How can AJ wrestle if she’s pregnant?

    • Gesus Oliver

      There is no way the NEWz sites were wrong.

  • Paul Jameson

    AJ PUNK AJ PUNK AJ PUNP

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wearing her hubby’s styled wristbands!

  • Xavier

    I had a feeling AJ would interrupt here

  • Avalanchian

    AJ Lee and so many have returned tonight.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This is quite the night!

  • Scott

    And there you have it……heel Paige

  • Andrew

    possible double turn?

  • Vic Jose

    4 returns in one night!

    • savokes

      4? am i missing one? Y2J, Aj, Miz…

      • David Jr.

        The Great Khali.

        • savokes

          oh…hah! didnt even see that as a “return”

        • Gesus Oliver

          I hate you.

  • savokes

    Voldemort stip for coming back….Aj becomes champ again

  • Moose

    AJ wins and restores interest in the Diva’s belt.

  • Vic Jose

    Paige has to win

  • Stephen Cash

    So is Paige a heel… She better win here…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    CRAZY THEZ PRESS!

  • Xavier

    Paige’s run looks like it’s coming too an end

  • Paul Jameson

    AJ looks healthier….not so rail thin. Time off did her well.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, are we getting a QUALITY DIVAS MATCH as a co-main event?!

    • Xavier

      No not really lol

  • Vic Jose

    Way to kill Paige wwe

  • Scott

    whoa!!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And there is VKM’s faith in Paige. Gone.

    • Xavier

      Yup pretty much. AJ “buried” her lol

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And they say HHH has a golden shovel… AJ buried the entire Divas roster in less than 2 minutes in addition to her reign.

    • Paul Jameson

      Future endeavored in 5….4…..3

    • Scott

      Shame too cause Paige is good in the ring

    • James Larochelle

      Now maybe they can build her properly instead of thinking a surprise title change was enough to make people interested.

    • David F

      not like VKM cared about divas anyway

    • Avalanchian

      Well they haven’t exactly utilized her ring skill for the most part. Plus she doesn’t have a man that people want back in WWE.

  • Stephen Cash

    It wouldn’t be bad if this was leading to an awesome feud, but I expect Paige to get buried…

  • Gesus Oliver

    wow…

  • Gesus Oliver

    I don’t know if we can say this is the coffin nail in VKM’s confidence in Paige as a main roster competitor. I would love to see a decent feud out of two women who can really tell a story in that ring. Let’s see where this feud goes first. I’m excited.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hoping they get a good long match at Battleground. Last night showed what can happen if Paige has a quality opponent.

  • Paul Jameson

    I want some tea

  • rschell21

    This is the best raw we’ve had in awhile is there any more surprises though I’m wondering

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Maybe… In the main event… BRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOCCCCKKKKKKKK LLLLLEEEESSSSSSNNNNNEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRR

  • Andrew

    this raw has been very very good wow

  • David F

    guess if you are a diva you have to hook up with right guy to get to the top

  • Xavier

    This feels like a post Mania RAW minus the ignorant hijacking attempts

  • Scott

    So whos standing tall at the end? Im guessing Reigns

    • Avalanchian

      I look for Rollins to appear and Ambrose appear

      • Scott

        I just posted the same thing! Would be awesome for Rollins to try and cash in and have Ambrose interrupt. Then Reigns and Ambrose beat down Rollins

  • Gesus Oliver

    I wonder how WWE will handle AJ being back since now they’ll have to deal with reinvigorated Punk chants.

    • savokes

      unless Vince worked something out and a HUGE return will come before his current contract ends….

  • Andrew

    random question but who has the best theme song in the wwe?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Currently or all time?

      • David F

        Edge

      • Andrew

        both really

        • Stephen Cash

          I really like Orton

          • Andrew

            i do like his as well or ziggler’s

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Currently, I give it to HHH’s “King of Kings” theme. It just fits so well, and I am a Motorhead fan. Orton’s comes in a close second. I work out to both. All time, Taker and HH’s Real American. They are just that iconic.

          • Andrew

            and all time is either austin or takers corporate ministry theme or limp biskit one

          • Jesse Sherwood

            The Dirge is the one for Taker for me. It’s in my will that I am to be buried to it.

          • David Jr.

            Kendra and I once were talking during a Smackdown OTP and I said that Real American should replace Star Spangled Banner as our National Anthem.

          • Xavier

            Real American still gives me goosebumps like no other

      • Scott

        Stone Cold (for pop factor)

    • David Jr.

      Current Adam Rose, all time Strike Force.

      • James Larochelle

        Girls in Cars! !

        • David Jr.

          We love Girls in Cars.
          Got to Love Robbie Dupree.

  • James Larochelle

    I’m even less interested in Kane now than when he was Korporate Kane.

    • Xavier

      Honestly, Kane really hasn’t been interesting since 2004/2005

      • James Larochelle

        I do enjoy him more when he’s doing comedy.

        • David F

          he hasnt been interesting since Katie Vick

  • Xavier

    Orton’s RKO on Cesaro has to be considered a spot of the year candidate. That RKO last night was straight up sick

  • Scott

    You know what would be awesome?!?! If Rolliins attempts a cash in on Cena and Ambrose interrupts it. Then post match beatdown on Rollins by Ambrose and Reigns

  • Andrew

    Hmm Aj returning and beating Paige, it really looks like a double turn to me, as Paige didn’t want to fight AJ and she seemed very heelish when she won.

    I really hope it is though, AJ becoming face is much needed, as shes right back where she was before she lost it, no fresh competitors and the same old gimmick that could get old. Paige also I think needs the heel turn, as that emphasizes her anti-diva gimmick and makes her more relevant and enjoyable.

    • David F

      cant wait for Charlotte to debut with Ric

    • Xavier

      Screw them! Push Naomi damnit!

      • Seth

        As long as Naomi has any association with the albatross that is Cameron…it may be a little while yet. Yes, association includes the program that’s coming.

  • Xavier

    Cena’s demeaner has been totally different tonight #RuthlessAggression

    • savokes

      sign of things to come (not necessarily a Heel turn but at least less corny and more matter of fact) or an anomaly?

      • Xavier

        If Cena were too turn heel I think Reigns should be the guy he does it against. Would be a huge rub for Reigns

        • savokes

          especially since Reigns is almost hotter than anyone right now

        • Stephen Cash

          I think it should be Bryan. I still love the him selling out to the authority and screwing over Bryan because they have built that relationship up a lot

          • Xavier

            Nah, they’ve already turned Triple H, Orton, HBK and Kane heel for Bryan. Time too get someone else some shine, Bryan would be my 2nd option behind Reigns though but you do make some great points

          • Stephen Cash

            Yeah, but Cena has no relationship with Reigns right now. So it wouldn’t be as meaningful. Now if they build up their relationship I agree

          • Padres4life

            would you agree that Bryan AND Reigns are going to be the guys moving forward? I know Bryan is injured, but still, he had that epic mania moment and feuded with the Authority, Reigns is doing the same thing with the same opponents. so they gave them both the same push but different versions of it….Reigns got a stronger push….

          • Padres4life

            they have, Cena is like his big brother looking out for him, would be crazy if he just randomly turned on him.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope they are trying to push things into edgier territory while keeping to the PG rating.

      • savokes

        We’ve had that with other things so far this RAW…explicit advertisement for Twisted Tea and a few makeout sessions in the ring

      • Moose

        …and advertising alcohol in a segment? Maybe (hopefully) it’s a sign of things to come.

  • Stephen Cash

    I wish WWE would make it a rule that if you chant CM PUNK you will be removed and not refunded… You ruin it for everyone…

    • Paul Jameson

      Good luck enforcing that one!

    • Avalanchian

      Ya that publicity stunt would go over great with the investors.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We’d have a near empty arena then.

      • Paul Jameson

        Rollins v Ambrose empty arena match in a non PG world would be epic tho

        • Seth

          It is so hard working an empty arena match I’d guess.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It is, because these guys work off of the energy the fans give them. So they have to dig very deep to put on a 5* match.

          • Seth

            I don’t think the goal is so much having a 5 star ‘match’ in that scenario. More like a 5 star emotional roller coaster for the people that do watch to get people to believe…’These two HATE each other.’

      • Stephen Cash

        Wwe keeps the money, and make a point. I’d prefer it.

        • Avalanchian

          Until they get sued and lose more money for something so stupid.

          • Scott

            That could ultimately be a supreme court case if pushed far enough.

          • Stephen Cash

            That’s why you make it part of the piece of paper you sign when you buy tickets.

    • Avalanchian

      I want all the people who say Cena sucks to be removed from arenas and forums!! We only need positives.

      • Stephen Cash

        That’s completely different… They are still feeding into a character that is present on the stage… With CM PUNK chants they are hurting the product and disrespecting the art form in the ring.

        • Avalanchian

          When CM Punk chants happen it’s because the crowd doesn’t like the product in the ring. I’d rather have crowds chant “this is boring” in hopes they get the picture.

          • Stephen Cash

            I agree… I just want to see CM PUNK completely removed from the product. He doesn’t deserve the time or recognition…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He already pretty much is. But kicking out fans that chant for him will only make them louder. You forget, they like defying what WWE wants.

  • The Breaker

    Wow, this has been a very good night of returns!

    • Paul Jameson

      Too bad for one person it was Mizerable

      • The Breaker

        Haha true, nobody was even thinking about Miz by the end of that segment.

      • Seth

        Miz has a career at this point?

  • Paul Jameson

    Love him, hate him, Orton showed guts last night, I gained a little respect for the performer.

    • The Breaker

      He’s not given enough credit. Orton is a great in-ring worker.

      • James Larochelle

        It’s his attitude that garnered him the knocks not his ability.

        • Stephen Cash

          His attitude has been way better lately, but people still hate on him. While they praise the worst attitude in CM PUNK…

          • Xavier

            I’m not a fan of either outside the ring and I have no problem voicing that but I would never take away from what Punk & Orton can do inside the squared circle.

        • The Breaker

          Yeah that has gotten him a lot of criticism, but you can’t take anything away from him. He can go as well as anyone.

  • Xavier

    Reigns playing the babyface in perrall right now.

    • Paul Jameson

      For SuperCena to get the hot tag

      • Xavier

        This match is more about placing Reigns in a different spot in a match more than anythng

        • Paul Jameson

          Or just to let Orton and reigns have at it which I can’t wait

          • Xavier

            Reigns/Orton at Battleground then Reigns/Triple H at Summerslam

  • Stephen Cash

    I’m starting to think with Vince losing so much money he wants to push the PG thing and take some risks. Sounds good to me

  • Paul Jameson

    You’d think by now everyone would have 5 reversals of restitution to counter the 5 moves of doom

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I will say I am really glad Orton isn’t concussed after last night. I was extremely worried about him last night. He was “swimming” quite bad by the end of it.

    • Paul Jameson

      He definitely wasn’t in boston…..looked like maybe Kansas or Nebraska with that glazed look.

  • Avalanchian

    Waiting on Ambrose to come out.

  • Andrew

    cash in?

  • The Breaker

    Cue Rollins!

  • Stephen Cash

    Rollins is coming

  • Paul Jameson

    Cue ambrose

  • Xavier

    THE CASH IN

  • Moose

    YES!!!!

  • Xavier

    Here comes Ambrose

  • Stephen Cash

    Oh yeah and ambrose

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cash in! And AMBROSE!!!!

    • Scott

      I called that!!!!!

  • Moose

    No Lesnar?

  • Stephen Cash

    I was going to say if he rings that bell and the match starts that should be a failed Cash in. Thank God wwe didn’t do that!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    REIGNS!!!

  • Xavier

    Where all those people I was debating with earlier who claimed Reigns isn’t over

    • Stephen Cash

      People were arguing he wasn’t? What have they been watching. I do agree a title reign is to soon although the “Reign of Reigns” sounds pretty good.

      • Xavier

        I think he’ll be ready by Mania

        • Stephen Cash

          Completely agree. I see him winning the rumble and facing Rollins the champion, and maybe Ambrose works his way in

          • Xavier

            I’m hoping we get Reigns/Lesnar at Mania (fingers crossed)

          • Padres4life

            people don’t hate Reigns, they just think its stupid how they booked Bryan to fail over and over again yet book Reigns to succeed all the time….its like the whole time they knew how to book talent well, they just decided not to book Bryan, the people’s pick, well…….see the frustration? its nothing against Reigns.

      • Xavier

        Some people don’t like Reigns because he’s not a Indie guy so they’re already dismissing him

        • Stephen Cash

          Wwe knows how to build talent.

  • Paul Jameson

    Fear the Spear returns

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the staredown between Reigns and HHH! *Shudders* I can’t wait for SS! THIS IS WHAT WE WANT!

    • savokes

      will HHH do the honors?

      • Xavier

        Yes he will. Triple H puts a lot more people over then people give him credit for

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Especially over the last 5 years. It’s amazing how much flak HHH takes.

          • Xavier

            I can write a novel for years over the flak certain wrestlers take from a certain group of fans

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Sounds like a good series for WWENews.net!

        • The Breaker

          I think people are just wary because of how he didn’t put Lesnar over at WM 29.

          • Xavier

            Who cares, he put him over at Summerslam and Extreme Rules. And just put Bryan over clean and The Shield over clean twice, why is there reason to be wary?

          • The Breaker

            Yeah, I totally agree, but I’m just saying that certain fans tend to overlook the good things that happen so they have something to complain about.

      • Stephen Cash

        For sure. He did for Bryan

  • Jesse Sherwood

    MASSIVE This is AWESOME chant!

    This is awesome! Yes it is!

  • Xavier

    Reigns/HHH coming soon.

    • kingdook24

      Before or after Reigns/Orton?

  • The Breaker

    Reigns vs. HHH is definitely the way to go for SummerSlam.

  • Paul Jameson

    Volde who?

  • Scott

    Called it! Reigns standing tall!!!

  • rschell21

    • savokes

      I meant to reply to you haha, Y2J/Bray, prolly Usos/Wyatts

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And Y2J/Bray will be for the IC Title.

        • savokes

          ah yes….you thinking Y2J as champ and Bray winning it off of him?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye sir! That’ll give The Wyatts a big Gold payoff in one night!

  • savokes

    Y2J/Bray

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Y2J is the #1 trend on FB!

  • Xavier

    BATTLEGROUND

    Cena(c) vs Orton vs Reigns vs Kane
    Seth Rollins vs Dean Ambrose
    Chris Jericho vs Bray Wyatt

    Looks good so far

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Usos vs. Wyatts 2

    • Cubed56

      gotta agree, but to be honest im not all that excited to see Jericho back to just job out again. It has honestly become a joke and its more shocking when Jericho wins these days.

  • savokes

    • Jesse Sherwood

    Best Birthday Ever!!!!!!!!!!!

  • MagicMike

    My prayers goes out to Paige!

  • Padres4life

    Reign’s push is becoming ridiculous.

  • King James

    Swagger got the greatest reaction of his career, I got goosebumps. WWE needs to build of off this. They can finally use Jack in a better manner than before. What an amazing RAW.

  • Rayner Chee-bai

    The way Paige won the belt, is the same way how she lost the belt – joke. Shame on you, WWE creative
