They head to the ring slowly, staring around at the fans verbally abusing them. King says the fans are mocking them. Trip has quite the black eye! Their music ends and much head from the fans. “Bluetista!” chants. Orton puts a hand on Batista’s shoulder.

Trip – They says it’s always darkest just before the dawn. The funny thing is that they think they won. You all think they won. You all think this is over. The Shield thinks this is over. You don’t get it. None of you get it. (“What?”) I don’t lose. (“What?”) I win. (“What?”) Always! This will not be over until The Shield exists no longer. (“What?”) And that happens tonight.

“CM Punk!”

Batista – I don’t want another match with The Shield, been there, done that, I want what’s coming to me, I want my one on one Championship Match you promised me!

Trip – Dave there’s a reason I’m the leader here. There’s a reason I’m the leader here! There’s a reason I’m the boss! It’s because I have the ability to see the bigger picture, you don’t have the ability to see the bigger picture. There’s a bigger picture in play here, and there’s a plan.

Batista – I don’t care about your plan. I don’t care about your plan, I don’t care about The Shield. I came back, won the Royal Rumble, I earned a one on one match with the WWE WHC. I want it, and I want it tonight!

Trip – Not sure if you’re aware of this, but Bryan is injured and cannot compete, which means even if I wanted to, I couldn’t give it to you tonight Dave. Even if I did, you’d probably choke in it anyway.

Off comes Batista’s shades, and he’s pissed.

Trip – Alright, I’m sorry. Things are a little tense tonight. In case you haven’t noticed, things are a little stressful, alright? Here’s the thing, there’s a plan. Is this how you want to go down? Is this how you want to be remembered Dave, as the guy who couldn’t beat The Shield? I’ve never started a fight I couldn’t finish, and I’m not starting today! This ends when The Shield is no more. Not until I say, and when that happens, you get everything you promised, everything you’ve dreamed of, but until that time, no one is getting anything!

Batista – I understand, and I quit.

Batista gives a small royal wave to the fans who chant “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” as he leaves the ring.

Trip – You what? You quit? Get back here! Get back in this ring! You’re going to what? Run back to Hollywood, huh? Run back to Hollywood? When your movie craps out, don’t come running back to me! You’re finished! You hear me? Get back here! Dave! Batis…

“Na, na, na, na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye!”

Commercial

In Ring Segment

Justin announces Steph to the ring. Steph out in a lovely sleeveless black and white dress that stops above her knees.

Steph – Last night at Payback Bryan showed his true colors, showed who he is, a selfish little man who chose himself over what’s best for business, his wife, and over all of you. Because Bryan wouldn’t do what’s right and surrender the WWE WHC. All of you deserve a fighting Champion, and deep down Bryan should know that, but he stood impotently by while his wife Brie fell on the sword. Speaking of Bryan’s lovely wife Brie, who put her hands on me a few weeks ago, she should have been fired on the spot. If any of you had put your hands on your bosses, you would have been terminated, but no I showed constraint, I showed leadership. I gave them chance after chance, and what did I get? A slap in the face!

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Steph – That’s okay, I’m tough, I’m a McMahon, I’ll live. I wonder if Bryan will be able to live with himself, waking up, looking into his beautiful wife’s eyes and seeing her heart broken, her dreams shattered, and knowing it’s all because of his selfishness. Enough about Brie and Bryan, this is about something bigger than one person. This is about the WWE WHC! Therefore, in four week’s time, at MITB, if Bryan can compete, he will be defending against the Demon, Kane. In a Stretcher Match. And if Bryan can’t compete, for the first time ever, the MITB will be for the vacated WWE WHC. See, I just can’t even understand why people still chant and cheer “YES!” “YES!” Daniel Bryan…

Cena’s music and comes out with his Never Give Up towel to show off, making sure we know to buy it. Steph doesn’t look impressed, and he’s getting a lot of heat.

Steph – John, I think these people like you about as much as they like me. But seriously congratulations on your match last night. I mean, that was really quite the match against Bray Wyatt. Kudos to you, I hope you’re okay.

Cena – Thank you. I’m sure after the fight Bray put up last night, we haven’t seen the last of him.

“Cena sucks!” chants. Cena takes of his hat and waits it out with a smirk on his face.

Cena – The sound of a WWE ‘Universe’. The sound I love and get to listen to every week. Your job is tough Steph, you have to make a lot of tough choices, but by listening to the WWE ‘Universe’, some of them are questioning.

Dueling chants for Cena. Again he waits it out.

Cena – Don’t get upset, and don’t try to stop this! This is what the WWE ‘Universe’ deserves! To have a good time! It’s what’s best for business! What’s not best for business is the situation with the WWE WHC getting way out of hand. I’m an employee, and like everyone here, a fan of the WWE. But seriously, tonight I speak to you as a Champion. A 14 time Champion who knows what it takes to win a Championship. Who knows what it feels like to lose a Championship. And who knows what it’s like to give away a Championship. Just like Bryan, I had an injury that forced me to give away the Championship.

Steph – Well, you just said it, you knew what was right, because you’re a fighting Champion.

Cena – Steph, you’re right, the ‘Universe’ deserves to see a fighting Champion. That is correct.

Steph – Finally! It’s what I’ve been saying.

Cena – But Steph, no one person is bigger than that Championship.

Steph – That’s right. Not Bryan.

Cena – And, not a spoiled, jealous, egomaniac names Stephanie McMahon.

Steph – Oh, you cheer that! Okay. Sure, you can all agree on that one. Thank you.

Cena – No one person is bigger than that Championship, I get it. You don’t like Bryan and don’t think he should be Champ. Face facts Steph, Bryan is good! He’s really good.

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Cena – I’m gonna tell you something you already know. The WWE ‘Universe’ can be as loud as they want for whoever they want, but at the end of the day it’s about proving yourself in here, and every single time Bryan steps into this ring, he proves he’s Championship material. Bryan beat me fair and square for the Championship at SummerSlam, and then you took it from him. And every single time he’s been even close to that Championship, you took it from him. The reason I relinquished the WWE Championship, was because I knew when I came back that I’d get a chance to win it back. You have created all of this. All of this is your fault because he’s not only afraid you’ll never give him another chance, he’s afraid you’re going to eliminate him from the WWE.

Steph – You can’t live in fear John. Like you said, Bryan is good. I’ve said it too, Bryan is good, he’s a B+! He’s not a Champion like you John. He can’t physically compete right now, what doesn’t everybody understand about that? He hasn’t defended in over 30 days and as a leader, as a boss, I have to do what’s best for business! Popular or not, I will do the right thing for our company.

Cena – I’ve had four surgeries that have taken me out of action. Your husband, the Game, the showcase of what a WWE Superstar should be, has had surgeries that have taken him out of action. You, have had surgeries.

Steph – That put me in action, but that’s another story!

Cena – We’ll lock that one up in a chest somewhere and don’t worry about it. My point is, you know what’s best for business. Business, plain old business, but you have put your personal affairs, because you just plain don’t like Bryan, get in the way of what’s best for business. In doing so, you’ve made an embarrassment of the legacy of the WWE Championship. You have wasted the WWE ‘Universe’s’ time, more importantly, you’ve made an embarrassment of yourself. I’m not going to speak to you as a Champion, right now I’m speaking employee to boss. Me giving you an job evaluation, one to ten. Ten being two thumbs up, and one being get your resume ready for career building, I give you a zero. Zero means, you suck.

“You suck!”

Cena – They give you a zero too.

Steph – Quite frankly I don’t care what you grade me, I don’t care what they grade me, what I do care about is creating opportunity. You say I won’t give Bryan opportunity, you say I’m not a good leader, but now I’m giving you an opportunity tonight. Now, I know you’re kind of beat up after your little Last Man Standing Match last night, but I’m going to give you a chance to show just how tough you really are, when you go one on one against Bryan’s opponent at MITB, if he’s able to compete, the Demon, Kane. Your match is right now. Payback’s a bitch John, but then, so am I.

Steph leaves the ring and starts heading up the ramp as Kane’s fire erupts on stage.

Ambrose – How do we look? Because we feel great? Bruised, beaten up, sure, because last night we faced our biggest challenge to date, a No Holds Barred Elimination Match against Evo. When the napalm settled, we did what we said we were going to do, a clean sweep! We eliminated Evo without suffering a single casualty. That’s what I call domination!

Rollins – Adapt of perish, that was the whole deal. Last night at Payback, The Shield adapted, while Evo perished! Earlier tonight, the whole world was a witness to their implosion. The reason Evo perished, because even though they are three of the greatest Superstars in this industry, last night they were not one like The Shield. In the end, they were just three strangers who just happened to be standing on the same side of the ring.

Reigns – We’re brothers. The men standing in this ring are brothers. This is Evolution, this is The Shield. So Randy Orton, bring your ass out here so I can break your jaw with symbol of excellence.

Orton to the ring to Evo music, being led by Trip, sans tie, but with his sledge. Rollins from the ring, grabs two chairs, then back into the ring.

Trip – I guess you haven’t figured it out yet, the thing I do better than anybody is adapt. Last night was Plan A, tonight, Plan B. There’s always a Plan B!

Rollins rears back with the chair and nails Reigns across the back with it! The arena gasps as one. Ambrose completely sells his shock. Ambrose at Rollins, but caught in the gut with the chair, then across the back. More chair shots across Ambrose’s back – over and over. Rollins breaks the chair, then tosses it from the the ring toward announce.

“You sold out!” chants fill the arena.

Ambrose starts to get up, so Rollins lands his curb stomp onto the chair! Huge heat and a lot of nastiness for Rollins. Rollins leaves the ring to stand with Trip and Orton. One man behind them keeps screaming, “Why?” at Rollins.

Rollins hands the chair over to Orton who heads into the ring to beat Reigns down with the chair. First his back, then his front, then the back. Orton removes Reigns’ vest, ripping off his shirt as fans are cussing and screaming. The welts on Reigns’ back from last night are quite obvious. Orton pulls Reigns up and hits an RKO on the chair. Rollins back into the ring with Trip. Trip claps Reigns on the shoulder as the three of them stand over Reigns and Ambrose, both prone on the mat.

“You sold out!” chants.

Trip puts an arm around Orton, the other around Rollins.

    Hello! Welcome to the Raw Open Thread! Who is ready to see what Raw has for us after Payback?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hey everyone, and welcome to this week’s Raw Watch Party! I’m sorry to say I won’t be here this week, as I broke a tooth over the weekend and am in too much pain to be coherent all night. So watch the show and have fun for me guys!

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

      Big hugs! Relax and chill out. I know it sucks. I know David, CJ, Mike, and everyone else will pitch in to keep the open thread going.

  • Mike McCarthy

    New storylines, new profile pic. Gonna be a great night.

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

      It should be interesting. We will be relying on you to help keep the discussion going tonight with Jesse out of action.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I’ll rise to the occasion…..hopefully…

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

          And I will try to stop thinking Masshole when I see your name! That’s the nickname of the wrestler I mentioned last night in the LB.

          • Mike McCarthy

            LOL

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

            Honestly, he was one of the best characters of the night. Rare to see an indy wrestler play a character to such an extent.

            I take it you know what a Masshole is.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Not the slightest clue, not sure if I wanna find out either.

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

            It’s what it sounds like, a derogatory term for someone from Massachusetts – mostly about attitude and driving ability. I was born there, so I can get away with laughing about it.

  • gurl bye

    i should be wiser and realize that i’ve got
    one less problem without you

  • Mike McCarthy

    Hopefully we’ll start to find out who will be in the Money In The Bank match/matches tonight, who do you guys wanna see go after the briefcase?

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

      That’s really hard. I know who I’d like to see, but I doubt they will get it because of the lack of pushing. I love Ziggy and Sandow.

      • Mike McCarthy

        It’d be cool if they gave Sandow the briefcase and he actually won a championship, you can’t help but think he got screwed last time ’round.

        • Paul Jameson

          i’d love Sandow to get some time to grow on his preshow outburst a few weeks ago, but alas I see no briefcase again in his future

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

            No clue why Sandy is being treated like Ziggy, but he’s really being treated like crap.

          • Paul Jameson

            While I hate the “lets put the underused in a tag together”….if you put Sandow and Ziggler together, you get…..Sandler (hmm, lawsuit there…)

  • Scott

    Whats up everyone!!!’

  • Paul Jameson

    “And his opponent, wearing the…wait really….blue trunks…AND blue arm and leg sleeves?! Ok seriously who ok’d this choice..Sandra…..Sandra…..someone get the ring gear lady”

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

      Sorry, but Sandra is not the person you want working on your ring gear after some of the messes she’s put out lately. Hello, Cam’s boobies were flying in the breeze at WM!

      • Paul Jameson

        I wouldn’t want Sandra anyway, just the only name that popped in my head while handling work conference calls…

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

          I know I could do better than her, and I haven’t worked with bathing suit fabrics in a number of years. Actually, I’m looking into getting into it for the local boys.

          • Paul Jameson

            Just leave the sequins at home……

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

            For the right person, they work. The thing is that a local boxer used a classmate of mine for his trunks, and they fell apart in the ring. Her name was destroyed from that. I will never let that happen!

          • Paul Jameson

            I was hoping you were gonna finish that with” …. but on a good note they then went on and had a great career in the adult film industry”

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

            *snort! No, and that’s a good thing. Not the prettiest girl.

          • Paul Jameson

            ha, no I was refering to the clothing falling apart…adult industry would be the only place where that would fly lol

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

            Actually, that could be fun to design for…

  • Scott

    I hope Reigns isnt legitimately injured…..

    • Paul Jameson

      even if it is a slight tear, he can still show…just no action for a little while.

  • Scott

    Ok so which big return do you think well get first?

    A. Sting
    B. CM Punk
    C. Brock Lesnar
    D. The Rock
    E. Undertaker
    F. Stone Cold Steve Austin

    • Paul Jameson

      Sadly none of those. Won’t see Brock before Summerslam build, won’t see Taker before Survivor Series if at all before the Rumble. Rock is definitely on shoot. So sadly I have to say G. The Miz :(

      • Scott

        I think realistically either Brock or Sting.

        • Paul Jameson

          With no contract signed officially, Sting showing up would be a shock, but realistically they wouldn’t want to waste a Brock date to amp up MiTB

          • Mike McCarthy

            It’s important to remember, that even though there’s been no official reports that Sting has signed, there also haven’t been any official reports that Sting HASN’T signed. He could’ve done either by now but we really don’t know for sure.

          • Paul Jameson

            Agreed, but still, the monday after a B level show rarely has a shock factor moment. Wouldn’t be opposed to my favorite WcW performer showing up out of nowhere, just done with getting my hopes up. Believe me, I will probably throw my cup across the room if this came true tho.

          • Scott

            Oh God I would to! Would love to see him work with Bryan cause he could get a good match out of him

          • Scott

            They could call it The Battle for Gods favorite wrestler…..ok that was wrong Lord I apologize

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

      Flair

    • Mike McCarthy

      Brock will be first, but not for another month. Punk won’t be for a few years, Sting won’t be ’til WMXXXI, hopefully the same with Undertaker, god knows when Rock or SCSA will be back.

    • Andrew

      i would say brock then maybe taker

  • Andrew

    hey guys!

  • Scott

    Best opponent for Lesnar when he comes back?

    A. Daniel Bryan
    B. Roman Reigns
    C. Batista
    D. Cesaro

    • CJ Blaze

      D. I would still like to see A and B too

      • Scott

        D is my pick as well! Internal Heyman Guy feud storyline would be awesome

        • CJ Blaze

          Yes, especially after seeing the success from Punk/Lesnar

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

      E – none of the above!

      • David Jr.

        Especially A., don’t need a reckless Lesnar doing more damage to Daniel Bryan’s neck.

    • Paul Jameson

      Adrian Neville

    • Mike McCarthy

      Cesaro, I’d love to see Lesnar v. Batista but WWE won’t turn Lesnar.

    • Andrew

      d no doubt

  • Mike McCarthy

    Xavier Woods is on the pre-show panel.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Any info on Raw from the pre-show I’ll pass along to you guys here.

  • Scott

    I wonder what direction Wyatt and Cena are going to go in tonight? Separate paths?

    • Mike McCarthy

      I’d think so, either Sheamus or Big E turn heel on Cena. Harper & Rowan go after tag titles.

      • Andrew

        i personally hope its sheamus to turn heel

        • Mike McCarthy

          As do I.

  • Danny Philippi

    Awake, Eat, Chat with the WNW Nation, Repeat.
    No NBA or NHL tonight. Should be fun.
    Hope the WrestleMania feuds ended last evening.

  • Paul Jameson

    Free blueberry blast frozen drinks outside the arena tonight.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Paige just got a pretty big pop on Superstars.

    • Paul Jameson

      aaaaaand the funkadactyls gots nothing….

  • Mike McCarthy

    Paige vs. Cameron on WWE Superstars

  • Paul Jameson

    I really wish the preshow was backstage….either be backstage or shut up and let us see a sneak peak at superstars lol

  • Danny Philippi

    Which June event has your interest the most?
    A. Stanley Cup Finals
    B. NBA Finals
    C. Money in the Bank
    D. 22 Jumpstreet

    • Mike McCarthy

      This is a real tough one.

    • Paul Jameson

      D…..for definitely D

    • Andrew

      wow very tough

    • David Jr.

      Transformers 4, no wait no not that.

  • Paul Jameson

    How long til they break up the funkadactyls?

  • Mike McCarthy

    Booker T & Xavier Woods both say they believe Evolution vs. Shield ended at Payback.

    • Paul Jameson

      It really really had to….with Shield 2 and 0….what’s left to show?!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Paige beats Cameron with PTO.

  • Paul Jameson

    The PTO….when done correctly should stand for Paid Time Off…..

  • Danny Philippi

    Josh Matthews wants a mute button. Call Tony Reali.

    • Paul Jameson

      really hard to get a mute button with Booker T on the panel…….

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

        Really hard to get a word in with Booker T on the panel!

        • Paul Jameson

          tell me you didn’t just say that……

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

            Shucky-Ducky, quack, quack!

          • Paul Jameson

            I keep wanting to hear a conversation between Booker T and Tony Atlas…..just….yeah, no words to describe that.

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

            The thing is that Tony is like that much of the time, even without fans around. He’s always throwing out comments and his laughter is always loud and infectious. I love being around Tony, he always has me smiling. He received a group of letters from a 4th grade class when I was sitting with him one day. He was in tears because he was so touched, and even that emotion was heightened. He just exudes so much emotion!

          • Mike McCarthy

            with the greatest of ease!!!!

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

    David Jr., don’t know if you saw, but Jesse is out tonight, so we need you to keep an eye out for trolls.

    • David Jr.

      He messaged me, but I can’t stay after Raw is over like he does.

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

        That’s fine, stay as long you can. I’ll be back after the show for a quick look. We really appreciate this. You’ve stepped up and helped us a lot!

  • Danny Philippi

    At the end of the day, John Cena will be what?
    A. Greatest WWE Superstar
    B. Top 5 Greatest WWE Superstar
    C. Top 10 Greatest WWE Superstar
    D. Top 25 Greatest WWE Superstar

    • Mike McCarthy

      C.

    • Andrew

      i believe c.

    • Paul Jameson

      i’ll take the heat, easily top 10, but closer to top 5 than Id ever imagine. So C

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

      I have to agree with C. Looking back we will remember the bad, as we do with Hogan, but also the great things he did, especially with the kids.

    • David Jr.

      Since you said Superstar, than it’s B, behind only Austin, Hogan and the Rock.

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

        Sting? Flair?

        • Paul Jameson

          WWE superstar part kills Sting…..

        • David Jr.

          Sting was never a WWE Superstar and Flair is more known for WCW/NWA

          • Paul Jameson

            Now if we take the WWE part off, and made it just top of all time, I’m sure it is a MUCH different conversation.

          • David Jr.

            I still think more people know who John Cena is over Sting. So I’d still say he’s top 5, you can throw Ric Flair in there.

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

            I think that comes down to age.

          • Paul Jameson

            Not only fan age…but technology age as well. If we had everything we have today 20 years ago…we’d be having a different conversation.

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

            I completely agree. I’m reliving so much I forgot over the years. I’m watching WWF 1999 right now, and loving almost all I’m seeing. Watched 1996-end of WCW already.

          • Paul Jameson

            haha so to translate that last part, she watch 1996-1998 WCW, and then what they “claimed” was WCW from 1999 til Shane showed up. That last bit is hard to swallow.

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

            It didn’t say WWE Superstar, and the WCW used the term as well. I don’t like Flair, but he’s top 10, no question. As is Sting.

          • David Jr.

            What I see it says WWE Superstar.

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

            Yeah, I’m being blind. You’re right. I read the question, then saw the numbers.

          • David Jr.

            Besides, Xavier and I are the Cena defenders on this site.

          • Paul Jameson

            yup, while I, much like mick foley, am a Cena apologist. I apologize for liking him, but I only tolerate Cena for the amazing work he does outside the ring.

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

            I said last night that Cena Sr. has such personality in all he does, yet his son falls so flat. No clue how he can be so boring growing up with Cena Sr.!

  • Mike McCarthy

    BREAKING: Tonight The Usos will face Luke Harper & Erick Rowan

    • CJ Blaze

      Grr, where and when was this announced? For the titles?

      • Mike McCarthy

        Non-title, announced on the pre-show.

        • CJ Blaze

          Thank you

  • Mike McCarthy

    Big E vs. Titus O’neil on WWE Superstars

  • Paul Jameson

    the slap heard round the world….somebody call Stephs momma

  • Danny Philippi

    Rank the WWE Pay Per Views so far. 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
    Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber, WrestleMania, Extreme Rules, Payback.

    • Paul Jameson

      lol….just a glutton for punishment tonight huh? I’ll bite. Wrestlemania 1, the rest…ties for 5th. And honestly…honorable mention was the RAW after WM which felt like a better PPV than the other 4.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Sine we’re talking Cena being in top 5 or top 10, I thought I’d hear your guys thoughts on my Top 5 superstars, it’s a lot different than most.
    1. Bruno Sammartino 2. Hulk Hogan 3. Andre the Giant 4. Stone Cold 5. The Rock

    • Paul Jameson

      *slow clap* I applaud this, and while I do not agree, this is still a respectable list.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Nobody counts Bruno because he never made wrestling mainstream, but without Bruno Sammartino, the entire wrestling industry would have died before any type of modernization could happen.

        • Paul Jameson

          agreed.

  • Scott

    That slap to Steph from Brie last night was pretty damn good!

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

      Watching the Network on my phone, and my daughter Sam rushed over to see the slap. She loved it.

    • Paul Jameson

      best slap of the 2010 era lol

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Hey guys just wanted to pop in and wish you all a good Raw. I won’t be able to stay because I am a bit exhausted dealing with the runaround after a guy crashed into my wall on Saturday night . So you know I have to be making police reports, following up on it, getting estimates for the damage that sort of thing. I am exhausted so I am turning it in early for the night. Just wanted to wish you all a safe and enjoyable Raw and I will hopefully be back with you next week

    • Paul Jameson

      Good luck and Thanks!

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

      Thanks for stopping in to let us know. If you need anything, please let us know on FB. I’m serious, if you need anything, let us know!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Get your stopwatches ready….

    • Paul Jameson

      ….for?

      • Mike McCarthy

        To see if Trip goes over 20 minutes.

        • David Jr.

          Does Anybody even have stopwatches anymore?

          • Paul Jameson

            anyone with a phone should lol

          • David Jr.

            Yeah I know phones do, but I want someone to use an actual stopwatch.

          • Paul Jameson

            I got one at my store if it counts….

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Kendra does!

        • Paul Jameson

          I don’t know ah…..if he has ah…..anything important ahh….to say ah….

  • Paul Jameson

    Aww, no blue suit.

  • David Jr.

    Batista and Triple H in suits, Randy Orton in ring gear. Yet me guess Randy Orton will have a match tonight.

    • Paul Jameson

      and that match starts…..right now lol

  • Avalanchian

    #Greentista

  • K!NG

    So what were everyone’s thoughts on last nights payback ? I thought it was a good show from top to bottom not a five star event but a 3.5 star show solid.

    • CJ Blaze

      I would have to agree. 4 seems a little high, but it was higher than 3.

  • Danny Philippi

    Evolution getting HEAT in Indiana.

    • Tom Mayer

      Lawl..but as an Indy fan, shuuuushhh

  • Paul Jameson

    please….please let it be over lol

  • Gesus Oliver

    Sorry I’m a little late folks! I just got my gameshark for N64 working!

    • Paul Jameson

      Awwwww snap….some epic Zelda codes on that!

    • Tom Mayer

      Wanna play no mercy?

      • Paul Jameson

        wrestlemania 2000, I wore that sucker out.

      • Gesus Oliver

        I can’t find the codes! I’m so mad at wwe memes for getting me to play that again lol

  • Paul Jameson

    Evolution of an Explosion about to happen….

  • Paul Jameson

    Um Trip….you didn’t beat the Undertaker….so you just lied

    • K!NG

      But Paul Heyman’s client Brock Lesnar broke the undertakers undefeated at wrestlemania 30

      • Paul Jameson

        see…if I was writing the show I woulda used that! lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    NA NA NA NA

  • Danny Philippi

    HAHAHAHA!

  • Paul Jameson

    HAHA…I give Batista mad props on the Queen wave to the smarks lol

  • Andrew

    this is where maybe sheamus comes in? turns heel?

  • Paul Jameson

    See cole….THAT’S why you’re a bad actor. There’s nothing in the air on that…he quit….done deal….what are you so confused on?!

    • Mike McCarthy

      Michael Cole has abandonment issues, he likes to pretend that nobody ever leaves WWE. I think it’s because he sits next to Jerry Lawler every single week. Now this CM Punk mess, Cole’s a wreck.

      • Paul Jameson

        We need Dr Shelby back….for Cole….

    • BlazeKing

      It’s called having Vince in your ear nonstop.

  • K!NG

    I was hoping randy would of just RKO’ed HHH out of no where lol

    • Paul Jameson

      get out of my head! I was just typing that! lol

    • Avalanchian

      Same here

  • K!NG

    Sheamus and Cesaro had one hell of a match last night

    • Paul Jameson

      Both can have a big future ahead, if creative can get it together…

      • K!NG

        Sheamus reminds me so much of mike awesome in the ring the way he moves around for a big guy its nuts. Cesaro is just rugged looking and can perform very well

        • Chris

          Wait, it’s a good thing to be compared to the Fat Chick Thrilla now?

    • David Jr.

      I believe any combo of Sheamus, Barrett and Cesaro will be one of hell of a match anytime.

  • Danny Philippi

    Up next, a formerly doped American and a white-out Irishman take on a Sly Brit and a Swiss Army Knife. #WWEUnitedNations

  • Gesus Oliver

    Didn’t think Dave was going to be blue today too

    • Chris

      No, no, he was green, which has shown in his ringwork lately.

  • Splat

    Dave has had enough and he is done…

    • Tom Mayer

      Oh if only

  • Mike McCarthy

    Cesaro needs a better theme song. Bottom line.

    • Paul Jameson

      At least he doesn’t come out to “My Client Brock Lesnar….” on replay

  • Mike McCarthy

    Alright everyone, who do you think will lose their title first, Sheamus or Bad News Barrett?

    • Paul Jameson

      Sheamo

    • K!NG

      barrett so hopefully he can be pushed into the main event sooner. I love sheamus but Barrett is over due

      • Paul Jameson

        right now…no best stepping stone than putting some prestige on the IC Title…..so I say have it for a while.

  • Paul Jameson

    What I don’t want to see during this match….real Americans or Adam Rose. Not that I dislike them…just can we have a match uninterrupted on Raw for a little while?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Barrett with pyro! Awesome!

  • Danny Philippi

    Bad News Barrett’s theme is one of the best in WWE.

    • Splat

      Cesaro’s is not.

      • Paul Jameson

        But how awesome would it be to have one night where the music got messed up and for some reason Cesaro comes out to the Funkadactyl theme….

  • Mike McCarthy

    Teaming the best theme music with the worst theme music, WWE Creative for the win.

    • Paul Jameson

      they flip a coin…come on…it worked for Two Face….

  • James Larochelle

    Greetings Programs. Sorry I’m late.

  • Paul Jameson

    Did heyman just talk about Sheamus’s small package?!

    • James Larochelle

      I think he said Sheamus should be ashamed of it.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I think he actually said he only would want to see it if it were in a greco-roman style match.

        • Paul Jameson

          would that be no holds barred?

      • Paul Jameson

        hey sometimes its a last resort kinda thing

  • Danny Philippi

    RVD got clanked.

    • Paul Jameson

      I believe he didn’t feel it lol

  • William Regan

    Well its monday night raw time….but I’m afraid i t some bad news..
    Its rent time, so i have to work. Ill put the show on in the restaurant and sneak some peeks here and there…
    Heres some comments about predictions i think might happen…but probably not.
    1. Stephanie will try to fire Nikki, thereby bringing out cena, who will then be enticed into championship form for the umpteenth time in this decade. Fans will still hate him.
    2. Batista quits cuz he feels no one will respect him. When he returns, he will form a tag team with bo Dallas and they will call themselves Boo-tistas. Believe in the animals.
    3. Jack swagger will wear the bunny suit to get the drop on Adam Rose. Zeb Coulter will return as Dirty Dutch Mantell and have shoebaby with him.
    4. Cm voldemort will not show up. Neither will the blackhawks.
    5. Some kid in n. Dakota will go to the hospital with alcohol poisoning because he will have to take a shot every time jbl says’this is great tv!’

    See ya in afew….
    This message was broufht to you in part by a paul heyman guy….who’s client, Brock Lesnar, conquered the streak at wrestlemania.
    And in part by Mick Foley, who would like to remind u, to, Have a nice day!

  • Danny Philippi

    Perfect Raw snack. Friendly’s Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with broken up pieces of Chips Ahoy! chocolate chip cookies.

  • Paul Jameson

    JBL and Paul Heyman, match made in heaven on commentary.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I mean would it be too much to ask for just ONE SHOW to have JBL, CM Punk & Jim Ross on commentary?

    • Paul Jameson

      that my friend would cause the apocalypse

  • Paul Jameson

    Did Sheamus move to INDIANA?! Where has this reaction been for Sheamo?

  • Paul Jameson

    Barret v Cesaro?! I approve this message!

  • Mike McCarthy

    over 1050 episodes, I think Lawler has finally run out of one-liners.

    • Paul Jameson

      yet I’d still kill for just one more….PUPPIES

  • Chris

    I heard Batista had a new entrance theme for his next return. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plxpY8KLA-Y

    • Scott

      Hahahahahahahaha! Oh so lonesome!

  • Paul Jameson

    And the loss to RVD basically means it never happened anyway lol

  • K!NG

    Shemus is the man.

  • Danny Philippi

    That match between RVD/Sheamus v Barrett/Cesaro was one of the best executed tag teams matches I’ve seen in the past couple months.

    • Paul Jameson

      and what’s better…it had no “run-ins”. it got to happen start to finish

      • Splat

        It had a “run-out” by Cesaro.

        • Paul Jameson

          true, but his manager has a client named Brock Lesnar who defeated the Undertaker’s undefeated streak at Wreslemania…

  • Paul Jameson

    Oh no…say it ain’t so Sandy…….say it ain’t so….

  • Andrew

    wow smh

  • Mike McCarthy

    #WhiteLebron

  • K!NG

    Idol stevens did he say

  • Mike McCarthy

    OMG how did I know he was gonna go there with that. :p

  • Tom Mayer

    Omg sandow, at least he gets tv time

    • David Jr.

      Yeah it could be worse, he could be JTG.

      • Mike McCarthy

        JTG is as bad as it gets.

  • Paul Jameson

    You know what….good for you Sandow. Use whatever time they give you. Good for you.

  • Mike McCarthy

    ……wait……what……

  • Paul Jameson

    Someone is about to go through that Basketball hoop now!

  • Scott

    Well I guess ask and I shall receive? Haha

  • Danny Philippi

    Big Show sighting.
    Former Wichita State center.

  • Splat

    I hope he doesn’t cry.

  • K!NG

    id say roy hibbert should come out but no one has seen him in months…..

  • Paul Jameson

    man…that is a real ball and he’s holding it like a nerf toy….

  • BlazeKing

    “There’s the hole, I got the rock. Trash talking’s over, so start that clock!!!”

    I lol’ed

  • K!NG

    BIg show is now the face version of 911 and kane is the heel version.. they just come out and take someone out lol

  • Danny Philippi

    Next week, maybe Sandow can be Kevin Love and say he wants out of Minnesota.

  • David Jr.

    So what left is there for the Shield to do as a group?

    • Paul Jameson

      break up

  • Dustyn

    I just read Batista is headed to Las Vegas to join the Blue Man Group. Any confirmation?

    • Mike McCarthy

      I’M DIALING MY SOURCES

      • Dustyn

        Thanks!

      • Trapdoor

        Have them check to see if he is guest-visitor on Blue Peter, when next in UK. ;)

    • K!NG

      ur reports are wrong he is meeting up with the blue meanie and discussing if he can be his manager upon his return

      • Ken

        You’re both wrong; he’s on his way back to Smurf Village, just off the Yellow Brick Road.

  • Danny Philippi

    Just found out Dave Batista is going to join his brother Jose and be the DH for the Blue Jays.

    • Mike McCarthy

      He’d get winded half way to 1st base.

      • Paul Jameson

        but should hit the ball a mile, so have someone finish the run for him once he hits first

    • David Jr.

      No actually he and his brother are on a “Mission from God.”

      • Paul Jameson

        Blues Brothers 3…I see it happening

  • Danny Philippi

    Jobbing Me Crazy!

    • Paul Jameson

      By now…hasn’t Kofi won more as a Jamaican?!

  • David F

    Sandow should have made fun of Indy for Vogel returning, Hibbert for throwing double bagels and George not being a legit superstar

    • K!NG

      or the fact they were frauds and not as good as everyone made them out to be… but i am heat fan so i am biased lol

      • David F

        I am Bulls fan so I am proud my team fights hard and arent jokes like Pacers. Although I would love see Noah guest host monday night Raw. Heat and Spurs series will be great but I got Spurs in 7

    • Andrew

      im a lakers fan so i cant say anything bad about them lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    BOLIEVE!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      No Bo….leave….

  • Paul Jameson

    The Masterpiece called….he says he does it better Bo

  • Mike McCarthy

    I have this odd hunch that Kane will become Bo’s lackey, they’d say Bo’s inspirational ways is the only thing that can calm the monster.

  • Danny Philippi

    Which is better, Bo Dallas’ wrestling or Tim Tebow’s throwing?

    • Paul Jameson

      Tebow….anything Tebow…..

    • Mike McCarthy

      Bo

  • Mike McCarthy

    Not even an hour through and they’ve already worn out the “local sports team” references.

    • Paul Jameson

      No no….they still have some Colts references left if they want to use them.

  • Danny Philippi

    BOing chant! HAHAHA!

  • James Larochelle

    Indeed. Bo-ring

  • Avalanchian

    Bo-ring

  • Paul Jameson

    Even Kofi can’t help but feeling BOred right now…

  • Paul Jameson

    BOtched it….BOtched it….

    • Splat

      But Cole said “O Man” like it was something special.

  • Danny Philippi

    BOTCH!

  • CJ Blaze

    Bo barely hit his finisher, had a hard time running the corner

  • James Larochelle

    Kofi has to be a little disappointed that he’s enhancement talent and unlikely to climb back up the ladder.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Was that the nail in the coffin for Bo?

  • Paul Jameson

    Bo….Spike Dudley called…..and Trish Stratus…..they both said they do it better….BOlieve that!

  • jeff

    trish stratus called, she wants her finisher back

  • K!NG

    i dont think thats gonna come back on bo. Boleive kofi will take the heat for how that looked

    • Paul Jameson

      Nah, Kofi can’t take that one, anyone with a brain knows who’s at fault on that one. Bo needs more time.

      • K!NG

        He has had plenty of time. a springboard bull dog for him is just a bad finisher he needs something else.

        • Paul Jameson

          right and finding his finisher should have been done with the time he’s been given. Still think he needs more.

          • K!NG

            good thing is finisher’s can be changed lol

          • Paul Jameson

            true, but it needs to be something universal, i hope they can find it for him.

        • David F

          He needs to join Wyatt family and drop Bolieve gimmick

          • Paul Jameson

            cause right now…he’s coming off like Sister Abigail anyway

          • David F

            Bo needs change his ring gear too he looks chubby and Wyatt gear would hide that. Plus adding another member would freshen up Wyatt family a bit

          • K!NG

            No i think they need to keep them apart for awhile.

  • Paul Jameson

    Steph’s gonna kill you….Steph’s gonna kill you….

  • Danny Philippi

    Stopwatches on standby.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Who thinks they’re stripping Bryan tonight?

    • Paul Jameson

      honestly, I wouldn’t care, but we NEED a #1 contender if they don’t.

  • Danny Philippi

    Just watched WWE Network for a minute and you know what Raw needs?

    • Mike McCarthy

      bunnies?

      • Paul Jameson

        puppies?

    • Paul Jameson

      rosebuds?

  • Paul Jameson

    um…if I put hands on my boss I woulda been arrested cause that is illegal in public since I’m my boss….

    • Tom Mayer

      Self love is a wonderful thing

    • BlazeKing

      Not if you do the Barry Horowitz!!!

  • jeff

    that slap last night got a bigger pop than half the superstars on the roster…

  • James Larochelle

    Ugh

  • Mike McCarthy

    Boooooo

  • Paul Jameson

    no Kane versus Bryan…..crappy call

  • Mike McCarthy

    John Cena wants to ruin Money in the Bank again.

    • Paul Jameson

      he can’t help it that Super Cena broke the handle before he was supposed to win it

  • Paul Jameson

    someone called a Cena run in on Step…..not exact way…but still called it. Who was it!?

  • Splat

    Cena is fine Steph. Did you see him after that match? It was like he didn’t even have one.

  • Tom Mayer

    Let’s go cena chants during a non wrestling segment……stupid squeakers

  • Mike McCarthy

    They’re gonna split the titles!!!

  • Paul Jameson

    *clears throat* “bottomfeeding….trashbag……”

  • Splat

    I love how she says B+…

  • Taylor

    Damn! I’m going to MITB was really hoping for a buried alive match

  • David Jr.

    He hasn’t defended in 30 days, Jack Tunney would have stripped them by now.

    • Bob’s Diner

      Pretty sure 30 days was never a rule in the old days. Pretty sure they only started that line in the attitude era

      • David Jr.

        Yes they did, Jack Tunney use to talk about the 30 day rule all the time.

  • Paul Jameson

    ya know…anyone other than Cena, this segment ended 5 minutes ago with you’re fired.

  • Tom Mayer

    Haha cena actually made me chuckle

    • Tom Mayer

      It’s a miracle

  • Paul Jameson

    Cena has shown more life tonight than the last 2 months.

  • diddy

    With his girlie long hair and looks WWE should repackage Bo Dallas as a cross dressing nun and call him sister Abigail and put him with the Wyatt family.

    • Trapdoor

      Bo-Linda

  • Mike McCarthy

    Holy long walk for a short drink of water.

  • jeff

    i like bitch steph…everyone seems to make fun of her boobjob when she’s bitch steph

    • ldb

      she had a damn fine surgeon.

    • Splat

      “Let the boobies hit the floor.”

  • ldb

    Through hell fire and brimstone its the Big Red Machine Kane!

  • Danny Philippi

    27 more days of this garbage over the WWE World Heavyweight title?
    More indecisive boss, Stephanie or Dixie?

    • Paul Jameson

      dixie

    • Mike McCarthy

      This fiasco is a little kink compared to the natural disaster that is Dixie Carter.

    • James Larochelle

      And then we get rewarded with Kane in another title match.

    • ldb

      Dixie. The dixie train left dixieland due to budget cuts

  • Paul Jameson

    well what we were just told is Bryan isn’t going to be ready, but we need to give something people just don’t want to see…I know…say Bryan v Kane…..that’ll do it!

  • Splat

    I have seen Cena beat “Kane” a million times but since this is the “Demon Kane” I don’t know who is going to win…

    • Mike McCarthy

      This is the first time Cena faces the “Demon Kane” was during that whole Zack Ryder storyline garbage.

  • Mike McCarthy

    If Daniel Bryan can’t go at MitB, they’ll split the titles in the Money in the Bank match, having two people in the match both leaving with one of the titles.

    • CJ Blaze

      That’s exactly what I thought.

  • Janis

    Bryan’s ru as champ has been a joke. If he can’t compete or stay healthy then put the title on someone who can. He’s defended the title as much as Rock did in 2013 and that’s terrible

  • Bob’s Diner

    Have they explained storyline-wise why Stephanie is even considered anyone’s ‘boss’? I mean, HHH is the ‘COO’ – I get that. But what job is she supposed to have???

    • Paul Jameson

      one of the principle owners….they only say it every week.

      • Bob’s Diner

        So is Vince. They’ve made it clear he has no power – hence HHH had to turn heel and have give Orton the title…

        • Paul Jameson

          that….and its also a story….so…..to go with your thread you’re on….the Board of Directors hold the power in your world….

          • Bob’s Diner

            So in answer to my original question… no, they haven’t explained anything.

          • Paul Jameson

            haha…wwe creative…explain anything?! I agree…they don’t explain things.

    • Janis

      She has plenty of jobs ;-)

      • jeff

        a boobjob being one of them (;

    • Tom Mayer

      She is announced a principle owner when she comes out?

    • jeff

      i think her last name alone is a perfect explanation as to why she would be considered their boss

      • Bob’s Diner

        That still makes no sense

        • jeff

          im pretty sure you can do about anything you want when you’re vince mcmahon’s daughter

          • Bob’s Diner

            Legally she has no firing or hiring power just because of her last name. Vince doesn’t in storylines either – they’ve made that uber clear.
            Technically, Stephanie would have to ask HHH to do the firing. Pretty sure your branding officer or whatever she is has no power

          • jeff

            remember this is the WWE. we’re supposed to somehow forget what they told us last year. and i think you may be looking into their character’s job descriptions a liiiiiiitle too closely

          • Bob’s Diner

            Like I said, I was just curious if they have offered any explanation as to why Stephanie is suddenly all powerful. It kind of made sense before, because she wasn’t the one barking orders – she was just supporting HHH all the time. But now she is going all Dixie Carter on WWE while HHH acts more like just a wrestler than the boss

          • Paul Jameson

            HHH has had his feelings hurt by batista….he has to collect himself.

  • Janis

    I really wish they would just strip Bryan already. He’s run as champ has been a flop

    • Tom Mayer

      This word flop, I don’t think it means what you think it does

      • Janis

        Trust me, I know what it means. Your poor attempt at humor doesn’t phase me

        • Paul Jameson

          I thought his attempt was better than poor, tsk tsk….

        • Tom Mayer

          I wasn’t even trying to be funny…the humor is in you thinking his run is a flop instead of being a victim of circumstance since wm, and wwe’s poor timing

    • Bob’s Diner

      Good to see you aren’t rushing to any judgments at all

      • Janis

        He’s defended the title as much as Rock did in 2013.

        • Bob’s Diner

          So he is on the level of The Rock?
          Bizarre comparison when talking flops

          • Janis

            Rock’s last title run was a joke to

          • Bob’s Diner

            It also lead to the 2nd biggest WrestleMania of all time…
            And PPV buyrates were the highest in years.

            Oh yeah, that’s a flop

  • Mike McCarthy

    Cena needs to realize he’s going too fast for Kane.

    • Paul Jameson

      well he doesn’t want to be seen….right?

  • Mike McCarthy

    Cena wins via DQ

  • Paul Jameson

    Kane had just as much trouble with blocks as a kid as he’s having with those stairs…

  • Taylor

    Super Cena strikes again!

  • Paul Jameson

    “Hey Captain America….you throw a shield?! Ha….I throw STAIRS!”

  • Mike McCarthy

    “He can’t lift those steps” “Not only did he lift those steps but he threw him” Don’t think Lawler remembers Payback.

    • Paul Jameson

      noone wants to remember payback….

  • Taylor

    No sells the wyatt beating last night, and now this

  • Paul Jameson

    AAAAaaaand Kane goes all Alicia Fox on the arena…

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      Maybe that’s his girlfriend. Lol

      • Paul Jameson

        it has been a while since Lita…..

  • Danny Philippi

    And .. what was .. the match for. Kane the male version of Alicia Fox.

  • Janis

    Good match

  • Mike McCarthy

    Looks like Cena is taking Bryan’s place in the storyline until Money in the Bank.

  • Splat

    HHH was supposed to be Dave’s friend.

  • Paul Jameson

    Haha…Batista took his ball and went home…..no mention if it was blue or not…..

  • ldb

    Bluetista singing the blues. don’t let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Sounds like Reigns is good to go!!!

    • ldb

      Or about to run an injury angel with Dave coming back. (Mark Henry retirement speech)

    • David Jr.

      Or it could be the way they “take him out” for awhile?

  • James Larochelle

    They sure are replaying this clip a lot. Swerve? Batista comes back out to take out The Shield in the main event?

    • Paul Jameson

      that would be a good assumption.

    • Avalanchian

      Well the rumor is Reigns really hurt himself last night.

  • CJ Blaze

    Looks like Reigns isn’t legitimately injured if he does work tonight, which is good!

    • Paul Jameson

      unless like stated below by others….its a way to write him off with a batista return beatdown….

      • CJ Blaze

        Which is possible. But WHY Batista. Makes sense with the quitting thing, but at the same time doesn’t

  • Andrew

    or maybe this where sheamus takes reigns out? since batista is leaving to do his movie

  • Charlie Crimefighter Hovey

    New members to evolution.. I vote the ascension.. Did I spell it right? Forgive me if I didn’t..

    • CJ Blaze

      Yeah it is

  • Paul Jameson

    Did they turn hornswaggle into a ChiaPet?

  • ldb

    I actually like the 3mb . That’s a heck of a power walk from Hornswoggle.

  • CJ Blaze

    Is this WWE’s way of giving us a “decent midcard” storyline?

  • Charlie Crimefighter Hovey

    3mb vs Los matadors is the longest running feud in 14 years!! They have wrestled 1,248 times

    • David Jr.

      What about Chavo Guerrero vs. Hornswoggle during the “Guest Host” Era.

      • Charlie Crimefighter Hovey

        No that doesn’t count.. Lol jk

      • Mike McCarthy

        Chavo Guerrero vs. Hornswoggle WWE Superstars Thursday Night Special

  • ldb

    Heath Slater stole all Van Hammers clothes.

  • James Larochelle

    Cole trashes JBL for ancient references and makes a Welcome Back Kotter reference?

  • Paul Jameson

    Please….someone die hornie’s hair blonde….he’d be a mini hogan running around.

  • CJ Blaze

    Qualifying matches! Yay!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    FINALLY!!! Some MitB news!! Ziggler better win, nobody wants to see ADR in a ladder match.

    • CJ Blaze

      Agreed!!

    • ldb

      Not even his momma wants to see that.

    • Paul Jameson

      I just hope ADR doesn’t concuss Zigs during the qualifier…

    • James Larochelle

      Not even if he wins it for the children?

      • Mike McCarthy

        FOR THE CHILDREN!?!?!? HE HIT SANTA CLAUSE WITH HIS CAR!!!!!!!

        • CJ Blaze

          Hahaha!!

        • James Larochelle

          He apologized for that. He’s all about making it up for the children.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I gotta say, I don’t think there’s anybody I want to win MitB more than Dolph Ziggler.

    • Paul Jameson

      led by Flair…..WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

      • Mike McCarthy

        Flair, Ziggler & Summer Rae.

        • Paul Jameson

          you had to go and ruin it with summer rae…… :(

          • Mike McCarthy

            Ziggler will become WWE World Champion with Flair as his manager and Summer as 2014 AJ.

          • Paul Jameson

            if you’d put any one other than SR in that, I’d back you, I can’t just jump on the Rae train….

  • Paul Jameson

    Id love a concussion…..uh sorry I mean stretcher match between Swagger and ADR…..the locker room could breathe easy for a few months.

  • Danny Philippi

    I guess Raw was interrupted by Monday Night Smackdown since the Cena/Kane exhibition. Hope Raw returns by the top of the hour.

  • Paul Jameson

    aWWW no more twin magic for Nikki…..aka future Kelly Kelly

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      Nikki has really improved and with a good opponent can put on a good show

      • Paul Jameson

        problem is…no good opponents yet so she’ll be passed over.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think Nikki and Stephanie had the same surgeon.

  • Mike McCarthy

    NO!!!!! GET AKSANA OFF MY TELEVISION

    • Paul Jameson

      Someone call Rusev!

  • Paul Jameson

    tell me no Eva Marie for the save

  • Scott

    Think Nikki had another surgery too…. Just sayin

    • Paul Jameson

      well if she didn’t…her nose will need one now….

  • Danny Philippi

    Alicia me crazy!

  • Scott

    Hahaha random guy shouting “YOURE RUDE!”

  • Paul Jameson

    She needs to be careful with the hashtag winning….. Charlie Sheen did guest host…

  • Mike McCarthy

    HE CAN SPEAK

  • BlackLotus

    what the heck did i just watch? that diva match was terrible.

    • Paul Jameson

      you watched Nattie unavailable, Paige worked Superstars with the Funkies and Eva and Summer Rae unavailable……best non jerk answer I could give.

      • BlackLotus

        i wasnt trying to sound like a jerk. my apologies on that but the match still wasnt that great.

        • Paul Jameson

          oh no, you weren’t….I was just saying that in mine that my answer wasn’t to be taken as me being a jerk to ya…..but I literally think no one else was available….so we got that train wreck

  • Paul Jameson

    Harper and Rowan….on their own?! And talking?! didn’t think it could get creepier but that worked for me…

    • Mike McCarthy

      loved it

  • Danny Philippi

    Different Wyatt Family promo but still poignant.

  • Scott

    Harper really could effectively pull off a Charles Mansonesque gimmick if the family ever splits

  • Dustyn

    For me, Luke Harper is the standout member for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love Wyatt, but Harper is great in the ring, has the look, and is just overall a great talent.

  • Seth

    I think they got something REALLY special in Luke Harper. The guy can work a good match…and he can talk. He can get you interested into WHY he’s going to beat somebody down…and say that point with a soul cringing dose of gruesome reality. He’ll be someone really good in this industry that we can all say…wow…this guy was really really good.

    • Paul Jameson

      He says more with his eyes than most midcarders can say in a 5 minute promo.

      • Seth

        Whatever the ‘it’ factor is…he’s got it.

  • William Regan

    Here’s an idea who’s time has come. Since there’s a demon Kane, there needs to be a demon diva. A diva who is scary and dominant, makes people watch….why not, right?

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      Aksana is scary

      • Paul Jameson

        lol but the dominant part? anyone ever labeled a GF of Teddie Long won’t be thought of as dominant.

      • Seth

        Aksana’s in ring work is demonically bad at times.. Don’t think that counts.

    • David Jr.

      The demon Kane and a demon diva would be easy to beat, just throw salt on them.

      • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

        Would throwing water on Stephanie work? Lol

        • David Jr.

          Yeah probably.

        • Paul Jameson

          Dunno…I heard if you get Steph wet she multiplies…..

          • Paul Jameson

            and never feed her after midnight….

          • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

            Lol

    • CJ Blaze

      Well Kharma was kind of along those lines, buuut

  • Mike McCarthy

    Today marks The Usos’ 92nd day as champion, passing the reign of David Otunga and Curtis Axel, as well as Rene Dupree & Kenzo Suzuki.

    • David Jr.

      Two of the greatest tag teams of all , no I can’t even type that.

      • Paul Jameson

        you just did….it felt good…admit it. Life is now complete lol

    • K!NG

      Otunga and Axel were like Demolition i there day and Rene and Kenzo were equal to the road warriors just saying

      • David Jr.

        So Otunga and Axel were a rip off Rene and Kenzo?

      • Paul Jameson

        ok, that should have burned you to the very core just thinking that lol

        • K!NG

          lol at least those two teams arent the heart throbs or the highlanders

          • Paul Jameson

            I’M ROBBIE

  • Danny Philippi

    Luke Harper and Roman Reigns are going to be what Bray Wyatt and Dean Ambrose were suppose to be.

  • ldb

    I still like Zeb and Swagger. Let him feud with Rusev. We the People!

  • BlazeKing

    Just thought I’d share what Zeb was saying before the show came back:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGuWcvMH8Cc

  • Seth

    I said this on Smackdown and I think it’s worth repeating here. Michael Cole singing along and digging the Adam Rose music kills whatever ‘cool factor’ he’s supposed to have.

    • Paul Jameson

      But cole has no cool factor….

      • Seth

        That’s in reference to Rose’s cool factor…what’s left of it anyhow.

        • Paul Jameson

          haha I know, Rose didn’t really come in with any cool factor, and running in through Swagger makes no sense which hurts even more.

          • Seth

            Oh and you saying Cole has no cool factor…well…That’s what SHE said. :P

  • ldb

    Fans seem to like the music

    • Paul Jameson

      fandango….nuff said…

  • Danny Philippi

    What has gotten into the Indiananpolis crowd?

    • Tom Mayer

      Hm?

  • Mike McCarthy

    JBL, you’re taking it too far, it’s PG you can’t cut off a bunny’s foot.

    • Seth

      He wants to do it for luck.

    • Paul Jameson

      only if you rub it for luck…

  • ldb

    he better watch that bronco buster type deal. …He ll tear himself a new a##hole

  • Scott

    Oh God…..

  • BlazeKing

    Usos just went WIld Samoan!!!

  • K!NG

    Love they call it the superfly splash.

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Rough Ryder rip off

    • Mike McCarthy

      ??

      • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

        When Adam ran into the corner and jumped on his neck

  • ldb

    Usos kind of remind me of Harlem Heat.

    • Paul Jameson

      Samoan Heat, I like it…

  • Paul Jameson

    Wonder who Goldie’s mystery partner is tonight….

    • K!NG

      blue dust

      • Paul Jameson

        BUT HE QUIT

  • Tom Mayer

    Anyone else feeling the “oh god there’s an hour left of this?” Flow of this raw is ehhhh

  • ldb

    Maybe Ryder, Kofi, Sandow can start the Mid-Card Mafia and stop the transgressions against their talent and intellect.

    • James Larochelle

      You mean like 3MB?

      • ldb

        Yeah except they get suits and sunglasses.

  • Paul Jameson

    haha great entrance!

  • Mike McCarthy

    what an entrance!

  • Danny Philippi

    Down goes rocking chair!

  • Paul Jameson

    I ain’t afraid of no ghost chair

  • Seth

    Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!

  • Paul Jameson

    i’m with whoever said it earlier…the pacing of this Raw has felt off from the getgo

    • Seth

      It’s like if you read a book and instead of reading the next chapter you jump to the 15th and then to a different book…and then a different chapter to the book you were reading.

  • Danny Philippi

    Without the extra hour of Raw, Vince McMahon would be bound to lose more than $600 million.

    • Tom Mayer

      Maybe he could use the money he didn’t lose and invest in more creative writers

      • Seth

        It doesn’t matter as long as he changes his mind every week on something and can’t set a proper direction he wants to go with things.

  • Paul Jameson

    Rowan looks like Sheamus’s homeless brother….

  • K!NG

    anyone else hear the fan last night say to triple h “hire colt cabana” when they were fighting through the crowd lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    Jericho revealed that Fozzy’s new album will be released on July 22nd, it’s titled “Do You Wanna Start A War”

    • Tom Mayer

      I’m waiting for his next album titled “I invented that”

  • James Larochelle

    Feeling sleepy. Think I’m gonna log out. G’nite Programs.

  • Tom Mayer

    Anyone else so sick of Popeyes chicken commercials that you couldn’t even consider wanting to eat there?

    • Paul Jameson

      now i want biscuits…. :(

      • Seth

        BISCUITS AND GRAVY!!!!!!!

        • Tom Mayer

          Made me a maaaaannn

    • David Jr.

      Even if I would, I couldn’t I have no Popeyes near me.

  • ldb

    Maybe Reigns can join up with the Usos after the sheild and lead the Anoa’i Family

  • Danny Philippi

    Flipping through the sports channels and you guys aren’t missing much besides Royals/Cardinals, college softball, and Tin Cup.

  • ldb

    No Can’t wait for the Spurs and Heat. Hope the Spurs handle the King. Go Timmer

    • Tom Mayer

      James came down with an ear infection

      • ldb

        Lance must have some stank on that breath

        • Tom Mayer

          Bad burritos off a truck in south beach

  • Danny Philippi

    I remember the days of the WNW Raw Open Threads easily getting 1000 comments. Wha happ’n?

    • Paul Jameson

      Stagnant stories

    • CJ Blaze

      Post Mania I guess. And this is usually a tough time for WWE

    • Seth

      Schedules, too.

    • K!NG

      the board booms when the fans are angry about something.

    • David Jr.

      Jesse’s not here.

    • Tom Mayer

      Start a cm punk return conversation, it’s like a bat signal for retardation

      • Paul Jameson

        what…punk?! huh? i heard punk, what are we saying?! *pant pant pant*

  • Seth

    Everyone’s flying!

  • K!NG

    when i was watching the headshrinkers on wwe network a few weeks ago i watched Fatu(rikishi) knock a jobber out cold. the guy laid on the mat for about 5 minutes not completely limp

  • Mike McCarthy

    Erick Rowan just got a pinfall!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      I’m liking this pairing.

    • Seth

      Not a bad little slam variant for the finish neither. Not the greatest finisher but he is a big guy in a land where he’ll be facing a ton of smaller ones.

  • ldb

    Bray isn’t missing tonight ….He’s getting Luke a new wife beater.

    • Seth

      YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH!

  • ldb

    Go Ziggler.

    • Tom Mayer

      Go where? For another cat scan tomorrow?

      • ldb

        Hopefully returning Mexico’s greatest export back home.

  • K!NG

    Doesnt matter who qualifies because Cesaro is going to win

    • Paul Jameson

      actually, cesaro could get the title without it…

    • CJ Blaze

      I’ll be very disappointed if Cesaro isn’t in it

  • Mike McCarthy

    Intercontinental Championship match on Main Event!!!

    • Seth

      My goodness. So far Bad News Barrett has won a ton of the matches and is actually presented as a champion this time!

  • Danny Philippi

    Greatest Movie Franchise?
    A. Star Wars
    B. Indiana Jones
    C. Godfather
    D. Rocky

    • Mike McCarthy

      Marvel Cinematic Universe, but out of those choices Rocky.

  • Mike McCarthy

    ADR gets his entrance cut, looking good so far for Ziggler!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      only as long as he ducks at the right time

      • Tom Mayer

        Ziggler should wear a colts helmet as a joke

    • Tom Mayer

      That logic didn’t apply to the Wyatts earlier :p

      • Mike McCarthy

        that’s different, they’ve never come out without Bray before, they literally have no entrance without him.

        • Paul Jameson

          while i liked the showing up out of no where with no reason to walk down to the ring with the chair…..i’m sure vinnie thought it would be funnier to have them aimlessly wander out to the ring with no purpose. I’m glad he lost.

  • K!NG

    what diva did ziggler borrow those trunks from…

    • Paul Jameson

      I’d say eva marie, but they look more like leftovers from his aj days.

    • Seth

      Stephanie McMahon.

  • Seth

    Cole seems to think last year was a couple years ago…blimey…great job Cole…your memory lapses continue to make me facepalm.

  • Paul Jameson

    By far…the worst ref in the ring….

    • CJ Blaze

      I don’t think I’ve heard a good thing about him

      • Paul Jameson

        i mean, if you botch a divas match…..what hope is there for you?

  • Seth

    That wasn’t a great bump off the X-Factor off the top.

  • Mike McCarthy

    …..are you kidding me?

  • ldb

    screw dat!

  • Paul Jameson

    ……..No Ziggler….no watchie…

  • Scott

    Whaaaaaaa???…..

  • CJ Blaze

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME

  • Mike McCarthy

    NOBODY CARES

  • Seth

    I think the wrong man won this match by such a wide degree rarely seen in wrestling these days.

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    WTF??

  • ldb

    Mexico just sighed……in disapproval

  • Paul Jameson

    I hate to say it…I rag on the creative team A LOT….but this one….this takes the cake.

  • CJ Blaze

    To use this as a stat for an article this weekend, was there anyone that is pleased with Del Rio winning??

    • Shashank Bhandari

      NO!!!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      somewhere Stone cold just gave you an Oh HELL NO

    • K!NG

      I am

      • CJ Blaze

        Really?

      • Mike McCarthy

        ….you should probably run….

    • Mike McCarthy

      If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s an ADR fan, but I really don’t think there’s any of em left.

    • Seth

      Yeah let’s push the guy who obviously doesn’t give a damn into the match at this point when the other guy is at least working to try to be something. Great message to send…great freak’n message.

  • Tom Mayer

    I wish I were paying for this so I could ask for my money back

  • Mike McCarthy

    If they want to put ADR in the ladder match as a scapegoat, fine. But there’s no reason not to have Dolph Ziggler in the ladder match.

  • K!NG

    mexico’s greatest 2nd greatest export. tequila is number one

    • Paul Jameson

      3rd greatest, I agree tequila is the number one…..but number 2 is the people who do JBL’s yards and land work.

      • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

        Lmao. Rofl

        • David F

          what about tacos? or Chrona?

      • Seth

        Third greatest are the sombreros.

      • jman72485

        That’s a little racist don’t u think?

  • Shashank Bhandari

    They need to get Ziggler in the match,,, whether with a last chance or battle royal or anything.

  • Scott

    People really need to do for Ziggler what they did for Bryan….otherwise Ziggler should get out and save his career possibly with GFW

    • Mike McCarthy

      GFW is gonna be a glorified version of TNA, they’re gonna get over on misused people from WWE. GFW will make it work by going after the right people.

    • Bob’s Diner

      They don’t even have a wrestling show – how is that saving his career?

  • David F

    jesus WWE doesnt listen to audience for loud pops Ziggler gets and silent crickets for Del Rio

    • Avalanchian

      Del Rio ONLY gets somewhat of a push because he’s hispanic. They have to try and appeal to them. Since Mysterio is out and Sin Cara gets no reaction they go with Del Rio.

      • K!NG

        spoke too soon

        • David F

          Doesnt Vince see Ziggler can draw him money and be main eventer no wonder WWE is losing ton of money. Maybe WWE can pull trigger with Zigs and Flair but I doubt it

  • Shashank Bhandari

    Someone should tell Foley what happened. I sense another broken tele.

    • Paul Jameson

      For this…I think he’ll just Socko himself…..

      • Shashank Bhandari

        He’ll give himself the elbow

  • Dj Marvelouz

    Its official!!! Ziggler has pissed off the wrong person!!

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      From way back

  • Danny Philippi

    ADR beats Ziggler and the WNW Open Thread blows up.

    • Paul Jameson

      see…horrible stories made it dead…but when something really bonehead happens its livens up.

  • Tom Mayer

    If they want to job and ruin Ziggler, why risk him with an injury from ADR? Why not job him to el torito and hornswaggle?

  • Mike McCarthy

    Cody’s gonna come out in a mask….I hope…..

  • CJ Blaze

    What?

  • Mike McCarthy

    ……..even Adam Rose gets a bigger pop than that.

  • Scott

    Alboreto Del Rio will be left after Armageddon along with cockroaches, Keith Richards and Cher…..

  • ldb

    I was hoping it was Gillberg.

    • Tom Mayer

      Funaki

      • Paul Jameson

        Smackdown number one announcer!!!

      • Seth

        INDEED!

  • K!NG

    I was hoping for Mojo Rawley….. lol

  • Seth

    Ding Dong reference.

  • Paul Jameson

    well creative is 3 for 3 tonight on bonehead moves….what’s left?! oh I know, lets have batista fake quit

    • Seth

      They would never have him repeat the same type of quitting he did earlier…oh wait a minute…

    • CJ Blaze

      This is bad.

  • Tom Mayer

    SAVEUS_steve blackman

  • Scott

    I for one would really enjoy seeing Sami Zayn on Raw!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    ……this has been just an awful episode….

  • Paul Jameson

    Just turn Cody on Goldie tonight…salvage something from this horrible horrible show

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Sin Cara is in his own little dance off with himself in the corner

  • Paul Jameson

    its like Sin Cara is a totally different person……oh wait…what’s that…he is a different person, well I can’t say that out loud Vince….

  • Scott

    I unfortunately have no interest in the rest of Raw after Ziggler losing….I dont even think The Shield can save this trainwreck of a Raw…..

  • Danny Philippi

    This Raw has had no motion in the ocean since the Cena promo.

  • ldb

    Cody’s gonna keep picking partners until he decides its Goldust and not him causing the losses.

  • K!NG

    A win for the big guy!!

  • Paul Jameson

    I got it…I just found out what playbook Creative is using….next week Goldie will pick Cody’s new partner….Eugene

  • Mike McCarthy

    …………..wait………………..what………….?

    • Paul Jameson

      That’s what JR said since Steph came out 2 hours aago…

  • ldb

    Can we get Big Show to beat Rusev with the Colossal Clutch.

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      He would probably put the Camel Clutch on Lana

      • Paul Jameson

        I’d allow it….

  • Paul Jameson

    Ok. My name is Paul and I have a confession…..for some sick reason I want to see a match between Lana and Renee

    • ldb

      Renee is okay but I want to see Lana Vs………legs…..legs….legs…..what was the question again.

      • Paul Jameson

        yeah I’m not gonna lie…I lost my bloodpressure after I typed Lana…..Renee got autofilled….

  • Scott

    Do what now? A Russian ceremony? Im speechless…..is Vince Russo back in the fold? Weve already seen something close to a ________ on a pole match with the basketball segment

  • Mike McCarthy

    The only thing that could make this better is if we see Nation of Domination 2.0 this segment.

  • Tom Mayer

    The people writing raw tonight probably think the marine movies are actually good.

    • Paul Jameson

      Hey wait, Marine has the Terminator in it…….speak carefully on that one lol

  • Taylor

    Those legs tho

  • Paul Jameson

    Why did they find a photo of Putin that makes him look like Jar Jar Binks?

  • Seth

    This feels straight out of Memphis with the cheap heat. You kind of need a little more than that though at this point.

  • Paul Jameson

    Oh crap…he’s in real clothes. He can wear those?

  • Seth

    Two things: Holy crap Rusev looks out of place in a suit…and WOULD YOU LEARN HOW TO WAVE THE DAMN FLAG!?

  • Scott

    This is just awful and pointless….

  • CJ Blaze

    I don’t think there is anything that can save this show.

    • Paul Jameson

      a bomb?

      • CJ Blaze

        Nope haha

        • Paul Jameson

          KURT ANGLE?!

          • CJ Blaze

            Ok possibly

    • Seth

      Save us Y2J….

      • CJ Blaze

        ….Maybe….

    • Scott

      Nope…..and I bet its gonna end with HHH on top to round out the suckfest known as Monday Night Raw tonight

  • Dj Marvelouz

    a ceremony for winning a squash match?? one of the worst episodes of raw ive seen in a looooong time

    • Seth

      With the right act…this can come off as extremely arrogant. Just I don’t think this is the right act but hey at least they’re trying something.

  • ldb

    Gillberg did make it ! Hes on the right hand side of Rusev

  • Mike McCarthy

    make it stop please

  • Paul Jameson

    honestly…I kinda hoped he’d start singing the russian anthem

    • David Jr.

      And be managed by Nikolai Volkoff, no wait getting rid of Lana is bad.

  • Danny Philippi

    I’m sorry, but this Raw has Vince’s pawprints on it. He’s lost touch with the 21st century sports entertainment fan.

  • CJ Blaze

    I tried to stay positive about this show.. but that has been thrown out

  • Scott

    Im hearing voices in my head……for real!!! Haha this is so awful!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    This is Monday Night RAW! Night after a PPV! And THIS is what we are given.

  • Paul Jameson

    what’s worse…the crowd is reacting…..which makes the idiots in the back think they are on to something…..

  • Seth

    *Grabs an evoker* Okay that’s enough PERSONA!!!!!!!!!!!!! ORPHEUS! COME FORTH!

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    If I was there right now I would be going to jail

  • Scott

    Where is Hugh Jackman when you need him?!?!?!?!? Christ!!!

  • David Jr.

    Wheres the USA guy Derrick Bateman when you need him.

    • CJ Blaze

      In TNA… haha

  • K!NG

    maybe he can sing this one the way to the ring

  • Dustyn

    Rusev get’s through almost a whole National Anthem, and Lance Storm got through how many? lol

  • Paul Jameson

    that is the fastest throw to commercial Cole has EVER done

  • Mike McCarthy

    I wanna start a tradition at WWE Live Events, whenever you reach a segment like that where it’s just horrible, you throw a hot dog in the ring.

    • Seth

      ‘YOU’RE A WEINER!’ clap clap clap clap clap ‘YOU’RE A WEINER!’

      • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

        Bahahaha

  • William Regan

    They haven’t played the Russia national anthem since nikolai volkoff. They really duginto wwe classics for that

  • Paul Jameson

    king says as they go to commercial “come on, you think anyone is still watching after THIS?!”

  • David F

    Rusev another boring monster foreign heel. save us Sami Zayn

  • Danny Philippi

    I wonder if anyone has left the arena after that segment and said “screw the Shield, Triple H, and the plot Vince Sr. was buried in.”

  • savokes

    This is barely gonna be a 10 min “match” by the time commercials and entrances are done….looks like I haven’t missed much so far tonight huh guys?

    • Paul Jameson

      lets just say I wish I had YOUR eyes…cause I wish I could poke mine out after this RAW

      • savokes

        Hahaha, wow! Such graphic imagery

      • David F

        I feel like Oberyn Martell now

        • Paul Jameson

          spoiler alert! lol

          • David F

            Sorry read the damn books! lol

          • Paul Jameson

            ha didn’t spoil for me…just saying…in case some peeps don’t know

          • David

            Sorry I didnt know you were an unsullied. there was tyrion lannister refernce at payback I think

          • Paul Jameson

            um…..if I’m anything it for dang sure isn’t unsullied…..poor guys

          • David F

            its term for people who watch show but have not read the books

          • Paul Jameson

            i have done both, but I truly meant it both ways, I would never want to be unsullied no matter how fierce in battle I become….

          • David F

            I wonder how Vince would be if he was an unsullied

          • Paul Jameson

            he mentions grapefruits too much, but the show might get better..

  • Scott

    You know….I wonder…..what if WWE rose their cost of the network to say 15 or 20 bucks a month and Raw/Smackdown are exclusive to the network. Not as much need for commercials cause they wont be on another network. They can just advertise who sponsors them…..could lead to a better product when you dont have to rush things trying to fit it all in with commercials. I dont know…..random thought

    • Mike McCarthy

      WWE doesn’t realize that if they put Raw and Smackdown on the WWE Network, they’ll be bringing in 100% of all advertising funds.

  • Dj Marvelouz

    OMG bray is coming back!! lol

  • Paul Jameson

    never thought I’d say this but….BRAY SAVE US

  • savokes

    Dang, HHH has that HUGE shiner

    • Paul Jameson

      i missed poking my eye out……

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    How did Triple H get his black eye

    • K!NG

      the seth rollin knee i think… that or its just make up lol

      • Paul Jameson

        its mostly make up to reflect that kick from rollins

    • Dj Marvelouz

      Stephanie Mcmahon lol

      • Paul Jameson

        winner

  • Scott

    Calling it…HHH will be standing tall over The Shield to end Raw…..only fitting to end it that way when the rest of the show has sucked

    • Paul Jameson

      the only thing that can be possible…..

    • Scott

      Look hes got his shovel….I mean sledgehammer

  • Seth

    For some reason Dean flexing there made me laugh my ass off.

  • diddy

    This is Raw is what happens when Stephanie quit as head of wwe creative Vince takes over and flushes all her good work down the toilet.

    • Bob’s Diner

      What the crap??? She was removed because creative was so TERRIBLE!
      Ratings with her and her husband in creative were awful

  • ldb

    here comes the turn

  • Paul Jameson

    Someone go get Freddie Prinze JR……

  • K!NG

    im waiting for triple h to say evolution didnt implode we only evolved

  • savokes

    Whaaaaaaaaat

  • Mike McCarthy

    NO WAY!!!!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    Holy balls

  • Dustyn

    Huh….

  • Paul Jameson

    Ok, i apologize, didn’t see that coming.

  • ldb

    called it baby

  • K!NG

    oh yeah snap into a slim jim!!!

  • savokes

    Most of us figured when Batista left, someone would join Evo

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Well that was a WTF moment

  • Mike McCarthy

    This is incredible.

  • Seth

    That felt a little too random to me.

  • K!NG

    Rollins really has something that ive seen in HBK RVD orton and DB everything he does in the ring look effortless and like gold

  • Scott

    Rollins would be so much more effective as a face….

    • CJ Blaze

      I KNOW!

  • CJ Blaze

    And my favorite wrestler has now joined Evolution?

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

    Creative managed to f this up too.

    • Mike McCarthy

      not at all my friend.

      • Taylor

        Not at all

  • Taylor

    Holy S#!@

  • Avalanchian

    Huge swerve, but the wrong one to have.

  • K!NG

    this is awesome just as good as HBK sending jennetty through the barber shop window

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

      nothing like it

    • Seth

      It’s not. They were brewing problems between the two Rockers for a while where as the Shield the last couple of months haven’t shown any signs of dissension. This feels way too random nor does it really have the effect it SHOULD have. It feels random and cold turkey.

      • K!NG

        It only feels random because no one ever talked about rollins turning.

        • Seth

          It feels random because it was the wrong time to do a turn when nobody could really anticipate it. There weren’t any problems the last couple months. There’s no reason to split off a group that was hot for the sake of it. Not at this point.

          • K!NG

            it was the right time the shield ran its course they had no one to face after evolution

          • Seth

            Then build to where they’re going their separate ways a little more so than that. Besides if there’s nobody else ‘to face’ whose fault is that for not presenting another threat to’m?

          • K!NG

            they dont need another threat they just beat a team that had 3 guys with a combined 31 world titles. im pretty sure they are all ready to head in different directions.

          • Mike McCarthy

            No, it felt random because it followed 4 horrible segments and the crowd was dead, if you didn’t like the turn then you have a problem with creative. By the way buddy, everybody has a problem with creative.

  • savokes

    Those are some huge welts…dang!

  • Taylor

    So who joins the shield as the new #3 ???

    • ldb

      Ryback…who knows the triple power bomb better than him?

      • Taylor

        It will be a nxt call up.

    • Scott

      No one…..just have Reigns and Ambrose go their separate ways and tag up for special occasions or something

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      Cena

  • Scott

    Well I called it…..not the way I thought it would go down but HHH standing tall over The Shield…..really debating if Im gonna use my Monday nights to watch Raw or work on recording my next album…..

  • Paul Jameson

    this is actually HHH work……everyone picked Reigns to turn……..vinnie couldn’t pull this one

    • Bob’s Diner

      Why does it have to be the work of HHH? I don’t get the internet sometimes

      • Paul Jameson

        its a personal feeling I have on this, this feels like hhh saw something marketable and chose to go with rollins. Just cause someone has an opinion doesn’t make you “not get the internet sometimes”

        • Bob’s Diner

          I say that because for some reason the common trend on sites like this is to blame Vince McMahon for everything bad but praise HHH for everything good. It is bizarre.

          Remember, Vince has to sign off on everything. And his track record with picking things like this is far better than HHH’s.

          • Paul Jameson

            honestly, if you want to poll, I’m sure right now most people with half a brain would say things have been extra questionable since HHH has assumed more power in creative and day to day stuff. He may be great with NXT according to some people, but there has to be something wrong right now at the top to allow a show like this to make it to air. I don’t think a single poster on this board can say this show was even remotely acceptable as a RAW. So for Vince to sign off on a show like this is bad. Which means whatever hand HHH had in it is bad, therefore…something needs to change.

            but I still feel like HHH went to vince on rollins.

          • Bob’s Diner

            I just look at it like they need someone to help make Roman Reigns look like even more of a star and Rollins is going to do a better job of it than Ambrose.

            And you would be surprised at the amount of fans that now think HHH is a genius and WWE will be better once he gets in charge. I personally don’t see it, but that’s just me

          • Paul Jameson

            we’d probably also be amazed at the amount of fans who still live in their parents basement, but sadly the wwe future seems destined to be in his hands…so all we can do is hope for a better future.

          • Bob’s Diner

            I wish my parents had a basement…

          • Paul Jameson

            mine did, but it was flooded….

          • Bob’s Diner

            Probably no good to live in, then. Unless you have an ark…

          • Paul Jameson

            or a good diving suit and tank

  • BlazeKing

    New Shield member: Brad Maddox

    • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

      John Cena

  • Dj Marvelouz

    no evolution music?

  • Mike McCarthy

    Out of the three, Rollins was the only one they were concerned about getting lost in the shuffle after The Shield ran it’s course. This secures all three members of The Shield for the long-term.

  • William Regan

    Uh…anyone see that coming?

    • Avalanchian

      Many saw it coming. They just didn’t see who would be the one.

    • CJ Blaze

      Nope

    • Dj Marvelouz

      yea but thought it would be roman joining evolution since hes the closest to batistas size

    • Bob’s Diner

      Yes though I thought it was going to happen last night.
      Not sure why people thought it would be Reigns though – he is the future John Cena and the most popular member of the team.

  • Stephen Cash

    WWE got this sooo right. Rollins is the right choice. He is the best mix and ready out of all the shield!!!

    • Bob’s Diner

      Ready for what? Feuding with Roman Reigns? Because I guarantee that’s where he’s heading from this

  • jeff

    was this a way to stop rollins from eventually doing a massive cross body from the top of the arena? coz i would’ve never seen that one coming otherwise…

  • Paul Jameson

    David asked earlier what’s left for the shield….the only answer is break up….there is NOTHING left….

  • Sylvir

    Looks like more more random nonsensical ‘we don’t know what we’re doing’ b.s from the writers. The three of them fight like warrior brothers against Evo for months, then Rollins just turns? Stupid.

  • David F

    time for shield to split I will miss them but I dont buy Rollins as heel long term. he has too much of jeff hardy rvd type of appeal to him. Ambrose is very similar to Jake the Snake and Brian Pillman and I am excited to see him develop. not sold on Reings yet though

  • Mike McCarthy

    Time to clock out, hope everybody comes back next week for a better episode of Raw. Can’t get much worse than it did tonight, the turn was great though.

  • Paul Jameson

    to quote kevin nash “in this business you either make money, or you make friends.” guess we know what rollins took

    • Dj Marvelouz

      Kevin Nash was talking about real life not a storyline

      • Paul Jameson

        ha true he was, but it doesn’t matter, this stuff isn’t real and i felt like tossing that out.

  • Mr.V

    Awful. HHH just had to take that one … That was so freekin flat

  • Seth

    Regardless of my…disapproval of the turn…truth be told I hope that Rollins excels in the role and proves me wrong and they make it work better than any of us both positive and negative anticipate. I’m not optimistic…but I hope the talents involved make the angle work.

  • Avalanchian

    Was really hoping Evolution would simply die out. Pretty tired of Steph and HHH always in the spotlight. Guess I’ll watch next Raw and see if I need to take a break from this in hopes it becomes appealing to me later on.

    • Bob’s Diner

      I’m with you. Evolution should have died – I’m not a fan of stables trying to stay fresh by replacing members

  • David F

    I dont know why but my fav member of Shield is Ambrose. His craziness just appeals to him and his ring psychology is great and he is gold on mic. I cant wait to see how he does in singles competition

  • Cubed56

    Is anybody still in here! i just got caught up after a night of softball. Why Seth, why now, why split the Shield?

    • Paul Jameson

      did you watch the whole show?!

      • Cubed56

        not quite, you can spoil it if you want i dont mind

        • Paul Jameson

          there’s nothing to spoil. What you saw was the only thing that could even be talked about in a rational conversation. Why Rollins? we don’t know yet. Why split shield? we don’t know yet. I say what did Shield have left. I still don’t have a full reason on why Rollins other than it had to be someone other than Reigns….

          • Cubed56

            true, but doesnt Ambrose have the better future as a top heel

          • Paul Jameson

            yeah, i always did see Rollins better as a face, but the choice was made…..

          • Cubed56

            Dont get me wrong, I’m ok with The Shield splitting eventually, but why do it the old fashioned typical way. Why couldnt they mutually decide to go their separate ways and always leave the door open for a reunion.

          • Paul Jameson

            well HHH and shawn michaels beat the crap outta each other from 2002 to 2004 but still got together again in 2006. Remember, its the business of never say never.

          • Cubed56

            very true. Like i said dont get me wrong, I actually dont mind the split, its not like I’m gonna lose sleep over it, lol, or be upset. The thing is it just felt forced and i honestly thought the Shield had a lot left as a faction.

          • Paul Jameson

            well if you DID go back and watch this egg of a show (believe me, I’m not hoping you do, or you MIGHT lose sleep from sadness) i don’t even think you’d have a different feeling. To some it is forced or sudden, but it wouldn’t have been if they didn’t tease dissension for months just to make thinks all cool again. Its the hot and cold of it that is kinda rubbin me the wrong way. But like all other stories, we gotta ride what is given and hope there is light at the end of the tunnel.

          • Cubed56

            valid points. I guess i just thought the Shield had more left, instead of Rollins turning, have Sheamus, Cesaro, Barrett, Ziggler, or someone join. I am however gonna ride it out and hope that this all works out and gives us entertaining story lines again

          • Paul Jameson

            speaking of ziggler….if I said ADR and Ziggler in a MiTB qualifier…just on paper who would you say won?

          • Cubed56

            ADR, cause Ziggler gets looked over all the damn time

          • Paul Jameson

            so see, you already wrote raw…no need to see it all

          • Cubed56

            lol. jesus christ, i dont understand why Ziggler doesnt get a real chance. If the fans got behind him like they did for Ziggler, maybe just maybe hed get a chance

          • Paul Jameson

            but he’s getting pops…..what else can he do…streak?!?!

          • Cubed56

            hes getting pops sure, but the fans need to cheer for him during other segments like they did for DB. I dont know, its just my personal opinion, but I feel WWE is really missing out on not giving Ziggler a run at the top of the card.

          • Trapdoor

            + ’cause ADR is their only pull for a large demographic, at the moment.

          • Bob’s Diner

            I thought they should have done it last night – I was totally expecting it. Then you can have The Shield break up a different way to normal and maybe have Batista the only one from Evolution eliminated, so they have a reason to fire him…

            Fantasy armchair booking!!!

          • Paul Jameson

            9 times out of 10 can lead to interesting stories though, great fodder for create your own stories on the video games….

          • Cubed56

            last night wouldve made more sense for sure

          • Booker Man

            I’d rather just say that is how the wrestling business works in general, booking decisions change on the fly all of the time. Most of the time logic really doesn’t play a part in such decisions either, it is whatever the higher ups “think” works for the moment.

          • Trapdoor

            Yes, but then if anyone was going to (be expected to turn) it would be Ambrose. Rollins’ raises a lot more ?’s & shock – When it was Rollins’ I had a “Whoh!” out loud moment, so well played WWE. (Am also glad to see that Reigns was there, so hopefully last nights injury was all part of playing up the match – but dang those welts).

          • Cubed56

            I agree, Rollins was unexpected until he brought those chairs in and didnt give one to Ambrose or Reigns. As soon as that happened it was obvious. The more i thought about it, Rollins was the right choice to turn, but now im more interested in what happens to Ambrose’s and Reigns’ relationship

      • Cubed56

        actually i prefer you do spoil it, it will save me some time. lol

        • Paul Jameson

          he’s the architect of the shield…..who else would the cerebral assassin go for?!

  • Stoney

    Triple H = past
    Randy Orton = present
    Seth Rollins = future

    • Lebron James

      Perfect.

    • Trapdoor

      I’d be amazed if this isn’t HHH’s explanation/reasoning next week. Nice pickup.

      • Trapdoor

        Wait. Scrap that. Just realised that would mean HHH admitting that he’s not only the past, but NOT the present or future of the company. – Silly me. :

  • kingdook24

    This doesn’t make a lick of damn sense. The Shield has TWO straight victories over Evolution… TWO!!! Evolution has none. Evolution never has had the advantage on The Shield at all.

    Why would Rollins defect? What did he have to gain by joining a group that HIS group has dismantled at TWO straight PPVs?!! I don’t understand this logic – this has to be one of the most unrealistic, nonlogical heel turns I’ve ever seen.

  • kingdook24

    I don’t know who pulled the trigger on this move but I know I questioned last night during Payback’s Forums Thread that The Shield has two victories over Evolution & I wasn’t sure where the Shield go from that. But the Shield has beaten them twice at two straight PPVs – that’s what makes this move so damn confusing. It seems like it was done either for shock value, like what they did with DB/Wyatts, or they’re trying to milk this storyline even more.

    I mean what could the reason be for Rollins defecting? It can’t be because a while back there was tension between Reigns/Ambrose – That got fixed and the ball kept rolling. I really do NOT see the reason for him defecting – I know I keep coming back to it but it’s because it really doesn’t make sense. The Shield has beat Evolution at TWO straight PPVs – “they” had the advantage over them. I’m not necessarily pissed Rollins turned… well, I am alittle bit (I’m a fan of the Shield)… I’m pissed at the execution: I just don’t see the logical reasoning for turning him when The Shield had the advantage.

    This is exactly why The Authority need another on-air character with power within the company to go up against them. HHH & Steph are just too powerful on-air characters. It can’t always be just the Superstars opposing them because in the end, the Superstars have no power other than to overcome whatever odds the Authority puts them under. WWE needs more than Bryan, Cena &, before tonight, the Shield. Like if HBK came in as Commissioner or something, or if Vince came back, IDK – something to help balance out the abusive power.

  • kingdook24

    The look on Ambrose’s face said it all

  • Trapdoor

    The Swerve: Although, as I said in a post on this page, it was good to see Reigns out (& dispelling any real injury worries), he did not wrestle. I hope to Zod I’m wrong, but maybe the swerve/break-up to give him time-off to “recover from the shock/betrayal” – which leaves the question: Who will Ambrose work along side? (I *really* hope we’re NOT told to Bo-lieve in the new Shield.)
