Raw Starts

DEP!

Raw opening is cut off by DEP!

Bray – He’s got the whole world in his hands. He’s got the whole wide world, in his hands. He’s got the whole world in his hand. He’s got the whole world in his hands. Brothers and sisters, sing with me! He’s got the whole world in his hands. He’s got the whole wide world, in his hands. He’s got the whole world in his hand. He’s got the whole world in his hands. Hahaha! Every night we lay our heads down to dream, our minds really start to tick. We start to remember these things, these horrible things, the travesties in our lives. But in our dreams, we’re super heroes. In our dreams, we can fix everything. We dream of revenge. We dream of Payback. Just like that, we wake up, and that’s when reality starts to set in. We look in the mirror, and we remember we are not super heroes, and we cannot fix everything. So we bottle all this rage up inside of us, and go on with our dismal little lives as if nothing is wrong, but everything! Everything! Everything is wrong! And I plan on fixing that, see. I used to have this mean old teacher. She used to look down on me and go to great measures to remind me that I was a piece of trash. I would never amount to anything in my life. She believed that everything she read about in a book was true, and that everything I believed in was a lie. So I went up to her and I said, ‘Hey teacher-lady, what is it about you that makes you think that you’re so much better than me? That you’re so much smarter than me? Is it because your mommy and daddy paid for you to go to some expensive school? So that you wave it around in front of all of us? Is it so you can force feed children all this propaganda? I say, nu-huh!’ She looked at me and she said, ‘Bray Wyatt, you are rotten. You stand for nothing. She said, Bray Wyatt, the first time I looked inside of your eyes, I knew there was something inside of you. I knew that you were evil.’ Hahahahahahahahahahaha! But I’m proud to say that somewhere, that teacher-lady is rotting inside of some retirement home, with all of her life’s regrets, but I Bray Wyatt, stand here today as a conqueror, as a revolutionary, as a man of a thousand truths, and I say, teacher-lady, look at me right now, I got the whole damn world in my hands.

Fan – He’s got the whole world in his hands. He’s got the whole wide world, in his hands. He’s got the whole world in his hand. He’s got the whole world in his hands.

Bray – That’s my Payback! My ends justify my means. But teacher-lady was right about one thing, I am evil. I am the necessary evil in this word that’s needed to balance everything out. I am evil! My tongue is the scorpion’s tail, and when it starts striking, people start getting behind me. They get behind me because I offer them hope. I offer them hope to men, to men like John Cena who want to see everything die!

Boo!

Bray – John Cena, he hides behind that plastic smile, he plays the role of hero, while everything around him burns! But I promise…

“Cena sucks!”

Bray – At Payback, all my people, I promise, that fairytale is going to end. At Payback, I will be the last man standing, or I promise, no one will ever stand again. But tonight, tonight Luke Harper is going to put John Cena down. Tonight, Luke Harper destroys…

Cena’s music hits and cuts Bray off. Rowan and Harper from the ring to the bottom of the ramp to wait for Cena, but he’s not there. Cena comes from the announce side, grabs Bray, lands an AA, and flees the ring between Rowan and Harper as they slide in to get to Bray’s side.

In Ring Segment

Bryan’s music and the fans are wild, but it’s Steph who comes out. Steph is in a black top and black leather skirt. Steph out leading “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” but getting “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” and huge heat.

Steph – Tonight you should all be chanting yes because Bryan underwent successful neck surgery this past Thursday. Bryan has a truly incredible story. At WrestleMania he won the WWE WHC, then he went on to marry Brie Bella. Part 1 of the wedding will air this Sunday on Total Divas. (“What?”) Bryan has overcome every obstacle, even his chant has inspired millions of people around the world. Entertainers, athletes, professionals, sport leagues, everyday people like you and I. Well, like you. (“What?”) And Bryan is doing all he can to get back to active competition, because Bryan is your Champion. And he knows that you need an active Champion. (“What?”) So, therefore, since I know Bryan is convalescing at home, and hanging on my every word, I’m afraid I’ve got some… Well, someone else can say it better than I can.

Video montage of Bad News Barrett announcing that he has some bad news.

Steph – (in a bad British accent) I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news. (heat) I am contemplating stripping Bryan of the WWE WHC. (heat) And awarding it…

“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”

Steph – And awarding it to the Demon, Kane. Or I could strip Bryan of the WWE WHC, and award it to Bad News Barrett. (pop) Oh, yeah, you like that because he’s from the UK. You’re so predictable. How about I award the WWE WHC to Batista! (HEAT) Seriously, if there’s anyone deserving of being Champion, it is the COO of the WWE, my husband, the Game, the King of Kings, Triple H! (heat) But in all seriousness, I am not going to strip Bryan of the WWE WHC. I’m not going to, but I am going to demand that Bryan show up on RAW next week and do the right thing, personally surrender the WWE WHC, because that’s what’s best for business.

Slater – London! The Union Jacks are home! So get up, get ready, because…

Slater is cut off by Rusev’s music. Out comes Lana in a brown suit with pinstripes, white cuffs and collar.

Lana – Similar to mindless America. Attempting to interfere to something far more superior, and beyond your comprehension, will be the cause of your downfall. You cannot stop or alter the destiny of a great leader like Vladimir Putin. He succeeded in resurrecting Mother Russia as a great power house, unlike America, who has failed. In fact, America’s future will be this.

On the tron is a picture of the White House with a Russian flag flying in front of it.

Lana – England, you are no different.

Lana – The super athlete will show you why resistance is futile. Witness the wrath of the Bulgarian Brute, Rusev!

Backstage Segment

Ambrose – Last week Trip talked about humbling us. Talked about teaching us a lesson. Eliminating us. Then Trip is going to run his goons down, and hide behind them. Naw. What that looks like to me is that Evolution might be afraid of The Shield. Because at Payback we want an Evolution that wants to fight. This 20 on three crap, this (pointing to Reigns’ eye), is this your brand of justice?

Reigns – Nice stitches. And the question remains from last week, is that all you got? Is that your best shot, because if it is, you have so many problems. You keep trying to knock us down, and we keep standing tall. And we;re never going to stop coming for you.

Rollins – Yeah. Evolution, that’s what you don’t understand, you don’t get it, you keep attacking us while we’re down, you keep us down, you keep trying to put us out. Example, two weeks ago in my match with Batista, I took one risk too many, and I made a mistake, and he did what he does, he took advantage, and then he beat me half to death when I could barely stand on my two feet. Tried to put me out of action. Tried to end my career, but couldn’t get the job done. Tonight, Dave, I won’t make any mistakes. Believe that Batista. And believe in The Shield.

Backstage Segment

Renee – Please welcome Cena. Earlier you were successful against Bray,do you have a game plan going into your match with Harper?

Cena – You don’t fix it, the game plan is the same as it was last week, invite the Tag Team Champs, the Usos. You know what that does? It keeps the odds fair. I’m no dummy, I can hear, the arena is full of followers of The Wyatt Family. They believe in Bray Wyatt’s message. We may have the odds in the ring, but there’s a sense of desperation tonight, just like Payback. I got a feeling I’ll be walking into an arena of Wyatt’s followers, so there’s that desperation. I love desperation, because it provides moments of opportunity to either succeed or fail! What do I do in the face of desperation? Do I run? Do I run? Do I quit? Do I give up? No, see we fear no man, we turn down no fight. We will stay, we will fight and find that opportunity, seize it, and win! They are the Tag Team Champs, this is the heart of a Champion.

Orton – Can’t miss those stitches, can you?

Trip – Nah!

Orton – I think what needs to happen is that we take these guys out one by one at Payback, and maybe then they learn.

Trip – Maybe, or maybe it starts tonight. There’s already blood in the water Dave, so I say you go to the ring tonight with Rollins, and you finish it. He doesn’t make it to Payback.

Batista – And I’m going to do it all by myself.

You embarrassed me a week ago, and two weeks ago. I don’t take embarrassment easily. (“What?”) Why don’t you send your people out of the ring? (“What?”) I’ll back Jack out of the ring. (“What?”) And why not you and me settle it right here, right now?

Harper stares into space, back over to look at Bray, and wipe his face on the top rope. Harper turns into a huge clothesline from Cena. Both up, Bray yelling into the ring. Harper rolls Cena through, but Cena locks on the STF. Harper crawls and drags Cena to the ropes. Rowan up, but the Usos on him. Flying Uso on Rowan off the barricade. Uso in, but then Bray in with Sister Abigail. The other Uso into the ring. Sister Abigail on one Uso, then the other.

Cena turns to Harper who plants him for two.

AA on Harper, but Rowan is there to attack Cena.

Winner – Cena via DQ (12:48)

Bray back into the ring. Rowan holds Cena, Bray into the corner, then back bends. Cena fights back against Rowan, but Bray with Sister Abigail on Cena. The fans are singing The Wyatts music. Cena tossed from the ring. Harper and Rowan toy with Cena, blows and pushing him around. Rowan with a fall away slam onto the ramp.

Up on the stage Bray lands another Sister Abigail.

Bray – He’s got the whole world in his hands. He’s got the whole wide world, in his hands. He’s got the whole world in his hand. He’s got the whole world in his hands. He’s got the you and me brother in his hands. He’s got the you and me brother, in his hands. He’s got the you and me brother in his hand. He’s got the whole world in his hands.

Over the singing, Harper counts to ten.

    Who is ready for Raw from the UK? I’m so excited! It’s May 19th!

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

      May 19th is my sister’s birthday.

    • David Jr.

      Kane’s not.

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

        Excited? I just hope they do something big with him! Since they had it on WWE.com, I’m expecting something interesting.

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

          Rule Number 1. Keep Expectations at a minimum to prevent being disappointed.

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

            Rough day? Seems rather pessimistic.

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

            Not really. Just a word of warning.

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

            That’s always good advice when talking about the WWE. I was just asking.

          • David Jr.

            I can tell you right now I’m not pessimistic. If you see some of my tweets, you’ll know what’s got me optimistic. (not wwe related).

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

            I was poking at Joshua, not you. I know you’re not pessimistic about the WWE.

          • David Jr.

            I know you were. I was just saying I was optimistic right now because of the Tigers.

        • David Jr.

          I didn’t even know they did. I just remembered that whole storyline of May 19th.

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

    I hope everyone enjoys the show tonight.

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

    We are always complaining about this or that when it comes to the WWE, but I had a great experience today, and wanted to tell everyone.

    I tried to make an order last week, and received a confirmation email, but I didn’t get the order in, though I paid for two day shipping. I called them today, and they said that something didn’t go through with my credit card – though I tried to pay through Paypal. I said I had wanted the items for Friday, so I no longer wanted two day shipping.

    She ran everything through, gave me the two day shipping for free, and another discount on all the items, and was pleasant doing it.

    It was so nice to have such a great experience.

    • BlazeKing

      To be fair, Shopzone & the “.com” guys are generally much better than the guys who run the shows. They’re in different departments.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hey everyone, on a serious note tonight, on behalf of everyone here at WNW, I want to give our condolences to Mike McCarthy. His father passed away.

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

      Yes, our hearts go out to him and his family.

    • Xavier

      I’m truly sorry to hear that

  • Xavier

    What’s good everyone

  • Danny Philippi

    What is going on WNW Nation? Just got finished cutting the grass.
    Till 8pm est. I will update on the Eastern Conference Finals between the Rangers and Canadiens.
    At 9pm est. the updates will be for Thunder/Spurs.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sounds good man! I have high hopes for the Spurs, but the Thunder have had their number all season.

      • Xavier

        Serge Ibaka is out for the rest of the postseason, that’s gonna really hurt OKC. I got San Antonio winning in 6

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I see it going 7, and I have Heat in 7 as well.

          • Xavier

            All I know for sure is that Miami isn’t trying to see San Antonio in the finals again

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Last night was pretty rough. And the Pacers played very well.

          • David Jr.

            San Antonio Spurs are the energizer bunny of the NBA, every year you’d think they eventually drop off and here they are again in the Western Conference finals.

          • Xavier

            Exactly

  • BIG M

    Screw Raw from London I just watched ROH/NJPW War of the Worlds.
    AWSOME STUFF.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’ve heard good things, but WWE always puts on a good show for the Brits.

      • Xavier

        Yup, including the greatest RAW Match ever back in 07 between Cena & Michaels. Hour long classic

        • BIG M

          Thats defiantly a candidate for greatest ever RAW match.
          HBK vs Angle in a 30 minute Iron Man match in 05 is another one.

          • David Jr.

            I vote for Undertaker vs. Jeff Hardy.

          • Xavier

            I liked that match as well but I tend to lean to Cena/Michaels b/c it wasn’t a gimmick match

          • BIG M

            I actually think the match they had on Smackdown in 08 was better.

          • Xavier

            I was at that RAW live. Top 5 RAW ever. Agree about the Michaels/Angle match as well/ Great match

      • BIG M

        They always should put on a good show for international fans.
        You Yanks are spoilt in the fact you get live WWE shows all year round.
        Us Aussies only get one 3 day tour a year.

  • Andrew

    hey guys!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hey Andrew!

      • Andrew

        whats up!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Not a whole lot. Eating supper and getting ready for Raw!

          • Andrew

            nice nice!

  • Danny Philippi

    Who do you want to see happen to the WWE World Heavyweight Champion?
    A. Keep it on Daniel Bryan
    B. Strip Daniel and have a WWE WHC Tournament
    C. Strip Daniel and give the belt to Kane
    D. Something else

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

      D. Daniel Bryan Keeps the WWE WHC and they make a WWE WHC Interim Championship Tournament to crown someone to hold the title while he is out culminating in a Champion vs Champion match when Bryan returns.

  • gurl bye

    earl sweatshirt is how i get through a bad raw tonight

  • Danny Philippi

    WWE Raw Pre-show starts NOW!

  • Xavier

    Just saw this and found it interesting. Good idea or bad idea?

    • David Jr.

      It could seem like they are copying TNA if they did this. Even though TNA is copying Attitude Era, so now I’m confused.

      • Xavier

        It makes no sense whatsoever. Wouldn’t a stable like this go after Zeb & Swagger?

        • David Jr.

          Makes more sense then Rusev. Who would be in it, R-Truth, Xavier Woods, Big E and possibly Kofi Kingston?

          • Xavier

            I suppose so

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

      I was actually watching Unforgiven & Over The Edge 1998, and Owen was part of the Nation of Domination. I was thinking earlier that if they did a well rounded NoD, that it could work quite well, and be quite an imposing group. It would also give Big E, R-Truth, Woods and a few others, led by Henry, a great direction.

      I think it’s funny Woods posted that today, as I was specifically thinking about it earlier.

      • Xavier

        I just don’t think any of these guys could pull off the whole black militant gimmick. And wouldn’t it make way more sense for a stable like this to feud with guys like Zeb & Swagger?

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

          It would, except that Rusev has been going after Woods, R-Truth, and Big E. The problem is who to bring in so that there wouldn’t be tons of people yelling about racism. And did they have any of that issue back in the original NoD days?

          • Xavier

            Not sure but probably not, the race wars (Nation, DOA, Los Borcious) happened when the WWE was TV14. Not sure they could pull off an angle like this and have it be effective when the WWE is PG. And with everything that’s happened in the last few years with Trevyon/Zimmerman & Sterling I don’t think it would be in their best interest to do this

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

            I agree, I was just saying aloud that I didn’t think they could do it now. I just didn’t remember any issue back then, but wasn’t sure.

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

          Why? None of the guys that would be considered except maybe kofi is not American. Why would Zeb have an issue with them?

          • Xavier

            Because he’s suppose too be a bigot.

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

            Zeb is Anti anti-American not racist or a bigot. Plus WWE won’t want anything remotely similar to Donald Sterling.

          • Xavier

            Then why did he hate Del Rio? He hated Ricardo as well and he was born here.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Because they are billed from Mexico.

          • Xavier

            But Cesaro was billed from elsewhere as well. The whole thing makes no sense lol

          • BIG M

            Finally I thought I was the only one who thought that was silly.

          • Xavier

            Lol

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

            He wants Emma the Australian deported.

  • Danny Philippi

    WWE Raw Pre-show in WWE Global Studios. Booker T, Alex Riley and Josh Matthews (3 man panel).

  • Danny Philippi

    Renee Young interviewing Brad Maddox who announces a Intercontinental Championshp Beat the Clock challenge to determine the #1 contender. Match to take place at WWE Payback. Thoughts?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’M AFRAID I’VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS!
      It doesn’t matter who wins this challenge, as Bad News Barrett will undoubtedly beat them at Payback!

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

      RVD will probably win and we’ll be bored at payback watching a recent rematch.

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

        And RVD catches the short end of the stick, yet again! I feel really bad for him. I don’t know why he comes back without a solid storyline and direction.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Well, if he’d come back for more than just 3 months, he might not have as many of these issues.

    • BIG M

      I like it always liked the beat the clock gimmick.
      It seems there trying to rebuild the IC title as the 2nd biggest title in WWE (as it should be) so I’m not going to complain about that.

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

    Wait, what happened to the big table they normally sit at for this show?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Probably didn’t get shipped!

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

        Did Matthews just say that they’re in Stamford?

        • CJ Blaze

          They probably taped it here in the US

        • Jesse Sherwood

          If so, then there’s some cost cutting measures!

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

        Oh, yeah, UK! Duh!

    • Danny Philippi

      To offset the cost of $340 million.

  • CJ Blaze

    CJ has officially returned to the Raw Open Thread

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Woot! Glad to see you here CJ!

      • CJ Blaze

        I’m glad to be back! :)

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

      Woohoo!

    • gurl bye

      CELEBRATE

  • Andrew

    random question but do you think that booker t was better as a face or a heel?

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

      Face, but it usually depended on who he was facing/feuding with.

      • David Jr.

        Also his character because right before he won his first WCW World Title, he was going as GI Bro, and that was just bad. I didn’t mind him early on as King Booker in his heel run, but it got old quick.

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

          King Booker very quickly was too much. It’s one of his worst times, even worse than GI Bro, and I think it’s because GI Bro didn’t last very long.

      • Andrew

        i agree with him being a face was his best i loved his stuff with goldust!

    • BIG M

      Face he was a hilarious ball of energy Heel he was an hilarious foil so its hard to decide.
      He’s talented enough to work as both and still be funny and entertaining as well as a good in ring worker.

      • Xavier

        Agreed. I bought into him as a face and heel. He’s King Bookah gimmick was hilarious

        • BIG M

          I was luke warm about that Whole thing.
          Never saw a need that late in his successful career for a gimmick change.
          Only good thing I saw in it was he finally got a World title run with it.

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

    Earlier today a number of people commenting on Ask WNW said they’re bored by Bray on mic now

    What do you think?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Not even remotely yet, but I also can follow his ramblings. It does help to be a bit crazy!

    • CJ Blaze

      I’m not bored at all. It just seems there’s that group of people who are always against what most people are supporting…

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Aye… The same people who turned against Bryan as soon as Punk left, turned against Punk when he won the title from ADR, and think HHH wields the Golden Shovel.

    • David Jr.

      Bray Wyatt’s quickly becoming one of my favorites, so I don’t find him boring.

    • BIG M

      Who on earth thought that.
      Bray is EPIC on the mic.

    • gurl bye

      bray Wyatt
      bad on the mic.?
      might use that joke for a stand up act sometime

  • Danny Philippi

    Renee Young awaiting who exits from a limo where Paul Heyman and Cesaro come out. Heyman disses Renee followed by Cesaro dissing Renee in his native tounge.

  • Danny Philippi

    Three Beat the Clock matches:
    Big E. vs Ryback
    Mark Henry vs Dolph Ziggler
    RVD vs Alberto Del Rio

    • BIG M

      First two matches BORING.
      3rd match might be good.

    • Xavier

      I’d honestly rather they have a battle royal or a royal rumble like they did on SD back in 04 to determine the new WHC.

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

    David Jr, just send you an important DM on Twitter.

  • Danny Philippi

    Pre-show ends.
    Raw begins NOW!

  • Danny Philippi

    DEP!

  • Xavier

    Can I put in a song request to Bray? I wanna hear him sing “TIME IS ON MY SIDE” like Denzel Washington & John Goodmen did in “Fallen”

    • BlazeKing

      He did it almost every week in FCW.

  • BlazeKing

    WWE: Then. Now. JUMP SCARE!!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    Dark arena. Cell phones as flashlights. And the promos. Bone-chilling.

    • BlazeKing

      The cellphones are replacements for the lighters that show up at outdoor concerts.

  • K!NG

    Bray is like reading jim morrisons poems

    • Xavier

      LMAO

  • Danny Philippi

    Bray the Puppeteer.
    The O2 Arena filled with his strings.

  • Xavier

    That was random

  • BlazeKing

    For real, fans have got to stop cheering Bray. I don’t want him face.

    • Xavier

      He’s still a heel. As long as he’s doing heelish stuff then he’s a heel regardless of rather fans cheer him

      • BlazeKing

        Actually, that kinda makes thing more complicated. Bray would have to keep doing things to get fans to stop cheering him just because people don’t like Cena for whatever reason. Even Jericho said “being a heel is the hardest thing because people love heels now”. You’d have to constantly outdo yourself. That’s just my opinion though.

    • BIG M

      Might make a good Tweener.

  • Danny Philippi

    Cena with a sneak attack. First signs of a heel turn?

  • gurl bye

    cena being booed amuses me

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Cool move Cena

  • James Larochelle

    Greetings Programs

  • K!NG

    Dont worry stephanie in bret harts mind HHH is a B+ player

    • Xavier

      Hart probably thinks Triple H is a F- player. Didn’t he say that Triple H wasn’t even a top 500 wrestler or something like that?

      • K!NG

        i think it was something like he never had a 5 star match in is career

        • Xavier

          It’s sad how bitter Hart still is

        • David Jr.

          He said every match was a 4 out of 10 at best.

      • BIG M
  • Xavier

    What happened to everyone, comments seem to be coming in really slow tonight

  • Xavier

    Is Disqus not working or something?

    • CJ Blaze

      I’m seeing your comments

  • BlazeKing

    Paul friggin Heyman, hahaha!!!!

  • Splat

    My client Brock Lesnar is never on Raw.

  • Danny Philippi

    The O2 Arena eating out of Heyman’s hands like a walrus eating out of a chum of bait.

  • Xavier

    Heyman is slowly sucking the momentum out of Cesaro

    • Andrew

      they should have kept cesaro face coming out of wrestlemania

      • William Regan

        The only problem with that would be that eventually, Cesaro would have to get on the mic, where he doesn’t look comfortable.

    • Mandy

      I really do not understand why they put Heyman with Cesaro. Cesaro can hold his own!

  • Danny Philippi

    is the capital of Bizarro World?
    A. London, England
    B. Toronto, Canada
    C. East Rutherford, New Jersey
    D. Los Angeles, California

    • David Jr.

      Whatever city chants what the WWE doesn’t want them to chant.

    • Xavier

      I’d say neither. I’d say anywhere down South because they still cheer the faces and boo the heels and don’t hijack shows. Very strange lol

      • David Jr.

        I like your answer better than mine.

      • BIG M

        Its the old school Wraslin ideal in the American south I think.

        • Xavier

          Agreed, it goes back to the territories. Fans in certain regions still watch and react to stuff the same way they did 30-40 years ago

          • BIG M

            WCW took those ideas and went global with it too.
            If I were Double J I would be keeping that in mind with GFW.
            Pull another page in the thin book called “The things WCW got right” in starting working relationships with Mexican and Japanese promotions and maybe Global Force Wrestling might make a go of it.

    • BlazeKing

      C. always!!!

    Canadiens score! 1-0 with 13:56 in the 1st period.

    • Dustyn

      Is it game 2?

      • Danny Philippi

        Yes. Montreal needs this to tie the series at 1 game a piece.

        • Dustyn

          I’m cheering for them, only Canadian team left lol!

          • David Jr.

            They were the only Canadian team to make the NHL Playoffs this year.

          • Dustyn

            I think they have a good chance against NYR, as for the western, I’m thinkin’ the Kings will go over Chicago.

          • James Larochelle

            With Price out for the series it’s going to be a much bigger challenge for them.

  • Danny Philippi

    Charles Robinson botches with his ring position.

  • K!NG

    If WWE Managment likes you the fans will turn on you lol

    • Tom Mayer

      Because when management likes you, they cram you down everyone’s throat until you vomit cena green

      • K!NG

        yea n if they dont everyone complains they arent being treated like a top guy

      • BlazeKing

        Yet nobody had a problem with DB being shoved down their gullets…

  • Danny Philippi

    Always laugh at WWE for putting phone booths on the stage of England Raws and Smackdowns. You promote Twitter!

    • Tom Mayer

      Hey at least we now know where to find a damn phone booth in this day in age :p

  • Xavier

    That was a good match

  • Cubed56

    so much for restoring the us title huh?

    • BIG M

      Id rather they commit to restoring the IC title.
      It should be the 2nd biggest strap in WWE like it used to be in the 80′s and 90′s.

      • Cubed56

        I agree, I want them both restored, but even with a bug name guy like sheamus holding it isn’t helping

        • BIG M

          Its not so much who holds a title its how much screen time is devoted to people chasing or defending that title.

          • Cubed56

            its also got a lot to do with holds the title. the title holder has to look strong, and cannot be losing non-title matches all the time.

      • Xavier

        They need to merge the US/IC title into 1 again. The IC title lost it’s prestige during the Attitude Era, that belt got whored out too everyone (Val, Godfather, Jarrett, Jeff Hardy, Road Dogg, Goldust, Rikishi, Chyna, Guerrero, Shamrock etc etc)

        • David Jr.

          What are you talking about, Everything was great in the Attitude Era, WWE never did anything wrong there. (sarcasm).

          • Xavier

            LMAO

        • BIG M

          I don’t think they should be unified.
          The US title should be the biggest prize for the mid card.
          The IC title should be the biggest prize for the Upper mid card.
          And the WWE World title should be the biggest prize for the main card.
          In my mind a Worker should climb the card by first winning the US title.
          Then a while later they go a rung further and win The IC title.
          Then when their ready they can go for the WWE World title.

      He’s a Cena guy and he didn’t come up through the Indies so obviously he’s not a good pro wrestler *rolls eyes*

      • BlazeKing

        In my opinion, people have got to stop following trends. You like who you like and nobody should be able to change that.

        • Xavier

          Oh I 1000% agree with you.

        • Tom Mayer

          I agree with that

        • K!NG

          Exactly…

        • David Jr.

          A person is smart, people are stupid.

      • BIG M

        Im not hating on Big E loved his work in NXT but he has looked a little green the last couple of weeks.
        Maybe a little indie work would have done him good.

      • Cubed56

        the thing is hes actually not that good, at least not yet.

        • Xavier

          I think he’s better then the WWE has let him be. He is hilarious on twitter. They won’t let him show his funny side though

          • Cubed56

            I agree with that, im just his in ring work right now is nothing impressive and is rather lackluster to be honest.

          • Xavier

            But how many people are great in their 2nd year being a pro wrestler?

          • Cubed56

            hes been wrestling for longer then that hasn’t he? this maybe his second year in wwe.

          • Xavier

            Honestly I’m not sure lol

          • BlazeKing

            Oh most definitely the backstage producers will dictate how you should act and the moves you can use.

        • BlazeKing

          I don’t expect too much from brawler types anyway. They’re just there to fight.

          • Cubed56

            He could be more then that though, the guy played D-1 football at Iowa, so you know hes got great athleticism, I just don’t think hes translating it well to his in ring work right now

          • BlazeKing

            They won’t let him show that progression yet. He was stellar in NXT and had the whole crowd in his hands.

          • Cubed56

            yea it also helped that NXT was in his backyard of Tampa, Fla.

          • BlazeKing

            Nah, it most definitely wasn’t that. He started when FCW was around and he didn’t get that many cheers back then. But he worked hard for it almost on a Cena level. No lie

            (Revised because I started with “he” too many times.)

          • Cubed56

            I actually did hear that about him. To me though, he just looks lost out there right now.

          • BlazeKing

            I think it’s the frustration of WWE stalling with his character.

          • Cubed56

            i could understand that.

          • BlazeKing

            They need to start the “5 count” gimmick with him ASAP imo.

          • Cubed56

            agreed, that was crazy over.

    • James Larochelle

      When they booked him so weak people stopped caring

      • K!NG

        Who cares how they’re booked if you like someone stay behind them and support them then in hopes they get booked better not just jump on the wagon when they are being pushed

        • Tom Mayer

          Booking is everything. I like Ryder, look what happened to him. He was over, popular, and now he’s close to unemployed

          • K!NG

            Ryder look at ziggler

          • BlazeKing

            At least ziggles wins every now & then…

          • Xavier

            Ryder just wasn’t very good. No one cared about him before the youtube show. The only reason he was over was because of that. Had nithing to do with his in ring skills or mic skills.

        • James Larochelle

          That’s nice in theory. But when your favorite guy goes under week after week it’s hard to remain interested in his match. And when you’re sloppy in the ring?

          • K!NG

            Hey i like ryback. Im interested in his matches even when i know he is going under. he has been getting beat alot.

          • James Larochelle

            And? I liked Cesaro when he was on his losing streak. The difference with him and Big E (for me) is that even if he lost I was entertained by his work in the ring. Not so for Big E. Some guys can get over with their work. Others may just need a little help from booking.

          • K!NG

            oh yeah i just think there are to many people who turn on the same people they cheer for because they arent being booked right and then you got the people who turn on guys when they finally make it

          • James Larochelle

            It is indeed sad when people turn on someone when they make it. Sometimes once they’re over they get booked different and they no longer feel like the guy you were cheering for. And some people just want to be contrary.

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Dang Layla had a handful of hair for real. Lol

    • BlazeKing

      Hair *extensions, lol.

      • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

        Good one. Lol

  • Danny Philippi

    For those wondering, Summer Rae was filming the Marine 4 alongside the Miz. Hence, the Fandango/Summer Rae/Layla love triangle storyline.

  • Dustyn

    You troll Stephanie!

  • CJ Blaze

    And Stephanie butchered the Yes chant….

  • Shashank Bhandari

    Stephaniel McBryan? o.O

  • Danny Philippi

  • Dustyn

    They’re back!!

  • BlazeKing

    Oh hell yeah!!!

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Love it. Lmao. Slater is the best.

  • Danny Philippi

    Put a walnut in between her legs and see what happens.

  • BlazeKing

    It looks like the people in the crowd that were there last year remembered and cheered. Everybody else had sour faces. Forget them…

  • BlazeKing

    I hate the fact they dropped the “Bulgarian Brute” moniker and went with this cheesy gimmick…

  • Eddie Edwards

    When was the last time a foreign gimmick got over?

    • BlazeKing

      Vladimir Kozlov did for a little bit. This gimmick here is corny & tired.

    • Xavier

      Muhammed Hassan

      • K!NG

        yeah he was about to be pushed big until ya know lol

      • David Jr.

        Muhammed Hassan technically wasn’t a foreign gimmick, he was suppose to be an American.

        • Xavier

          True

    • K!NG

      Sheamus

      • Xavier

        Lol very true

  • Danny Philippi

    Who does Rusev lose to first?

    • James Larochelle

      Indifference

    • Xavier

      Bryan

    • BlazeKing

      Big Show.

    • K!NG

      Adrian Neville in his debut match… wishful thinking over here

      • BlazeKing

        You most definitely wish, lol.

      • BlazeKing

        You made me waste my diet soda… It’s all over the screen now and I hate you!

        • CJ Blaze

          Haha I laughed while typing it. :)

          • BlazeKing

            At which letter did you fall apart lmao!!!

          • CJ Blaze

            T lol

      • gurl bye

        cryme time is still real to me

  • K!NG

    dam was hoping shield would arrive in a chopper again

  • Cubed56

    who sees a screwy finish in this rematch at payback?

  • K!NG

    Rusev gets what i call the Marc Mero reaction… the only reason the crowd reacts is because of his manager

    • BlazeKing

      Damn! That needs to go into the Urban Dictionary, for real.

  • Danny Philippi

    Watched a few minutes of Rangers/Canadiens and two thing I concur with:
    1) Henrik Lundqvist is the best goaltender in the NHL
    2) Montreal fans are absolute complainers

    • James Larochelle

      And it’s 3-1

  • K!NG

    RVD VS Del Rio the battle of the errant kickers

  • Danny Philippi

    Rangers score! Martin St. Louis now has the Rangers up 3-1.

  • BlazeKing

    What?! No rolling thunder *and* JBL rips on him??? Oh man…

  • James Larochelle

    Is Del Rio gonna win it for the children?

    • David Jr.

      Then Hacksaw Jim Duggan will hate him for it.

    • BlazeKing

      Is it wrong that I read “children” with a British accent?

  • BlazeKing

    There we go! Rolling Thunder proper.

  • Danny Philippi

    NBA West Final update:
    Spurs lead 30-27.

  • Xavier

    San Antonio up 30-27 on Oklahoma City at the end of the 1st Qtr

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Spurs working hard tonight!

  • Xavier

    RVD bores me to tears now

    • K!NG

      Im not sure if its him changing his style due to him getting older or WWE not letting him work the way he use too. Stll love rvd though

      • Xavier

        That among other things. Honestly though I was never as high up on RVD as much as most people were.

        • K!NG

          lol its alright i was never a big Jeff Hardy guy

          • Xavier

            I loved him as a tag worker and then I finally started to get into Hardy around early 08 but he kept shooting himself in the foot

          • K!NG

            i loved the hardy boys but i always felt that jeff was limited in his in ring work and that his only good matches would come from gimmick matches. Sadly i actually liked Matt better.

          • James Larochelle

            Matt worked a lot harder on the mic

    • BlazeKing

      I know… It’s kinda sad, but then I remember how old that dude really is even though he doesn’t really show it.

    • James Larochelle

      You’re crying just like all the children. Del Rio was trying to win it all for you.

      • Xavier

        Lol

  • Danny Philippi

    Two quick pinfalls in the first 90 minutes of Raw. How long will the Rollins/Batista match be?

  • gurl bye

    can we replace raw with nxt takeover

  • CJ Blaze

    Woo NXT Takeover plug on Raw!!

    • Splat

      Tyson Kidd Woo!

      • CJ Blaze

        YES!

  • Splat

    Follow the buzzards John.

    • gurl bye

      PLEASE

  • K!NG

    Id like to see Cena paint his face lol

  • Tom Mayer

    Last black tag team cena teamed up with..cryme tyme, just saying

    • Xavier

      Usos are Samoan

      • Tom Mayer

        Touché

    • BlazeKing

      Well, at least JTG still has a job… And he does them flawlessly!!!

      • K!NG

        hes been with wwe for like 8 years

        • Xavier

          That’s almost hard to believe lol. But hey I’d take 150,000-200,000 to do nothing lol

          • K!NG

            its like being a third string QB

          • Xavier

            Exactly

          • Tom Mayer

            Someone needs to setup the ring

          • Xavier

            Lol very true

          • K!NG

            just not charles robinson

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That deserves a thumbs up!

          • K!NG

            lol

        • BlazeKing

          I was legitimately shocked he was still there after he showed up at a live event last year.

    • David Jr.

      Who was the last latino team or oriental team he teamed up with?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hey guys, sorry I’ve been out most of the night, but had some business that had to be taken care of. But I’m back! What’d I miss?

    • BlazeKing

      Nothing major really.

    • James Larochelle

      The children weeping when ADR lost his Beat The Clock challenge to RVD. It was so sad.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Those are unfounded tears!!!

        • James Larochelle

          But he was trying to win it for them!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            BAKA!!!

        • David Jr.

          It’s going to be a terrible day at work tomorrow because all I’m going to here is crying all day long because Alberto Del Rio couldn’t win it for the kids.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sierra
    Hotel
    India
    Echo
    Lima
    Delta
    SHIELD!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    The past ten minutes of Raw have been boring. Hope Rollins/Batista lights up the London sky.

  • Splat

    Old man Dave.

  • Danny Philippi

    This is what the NBA did during the Jordan Era. Make rules up to benefit the swoosh.

    • Tom Mayer

      Oh please are you a Utah jazz fan

      • Danny Philippi

        Nope. Just observing the NBA since ’95.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Reading KB’s results, I see Fandango pulling a Dreamer! “I’ll take them both, I’m HARDCORE!”

    • Splat

      Thank you sir may I have another…

      • Jesse Sherwood

        *DDTs Splat* EC bleep W!

  • BlazeKing

    This match could be interesting… Commentary is going to be GOLDEN!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    We are about 5 moves in, and Batista already has to take a break on the outside…

    • Xavier

      He got them old man lungs

    • James Larochelle

      It’s called strategic breathing

      • Tom Mayer

        He learned something from his daughters lemans classes

        • Jesse Sherwood

          He needs some burn cream!

    • Splat

      I’ve had enough!

      Signed,
      Batista

      • Jesse Sherwood

        LOL! Then he should quit again! I can duct tape him to the ring, if it make him leave faster!

        • David Jr.

          That’s my favorite Batista moment, when he does his rant on John Cena for using duct tape.

  • Tom Mayer

    Was that a mason Ryan chant? Lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I think so!

      • Tom Mayer

        Winning

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Rewound the DVR, and it was!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    Roman, it’s called commentating. Not stand there for girls in training bras to whistle at you.

    • BlazeKing

      Oh damn! Were you in New Orleans for WM30?

      • Danny Philippi

        Nope. Just stating what is perception AND reality.

        • BlazeKing

          That’s *exactly* what happened down there too!!!

  • Xavier

    Payback = Extreme Rules Repeat

    • CJ Blaze

      Almost more extreme already haha

  • Danny Philippi

    364 and counting! LOL

    • BlazeKing

      Yeah, we’re having an off night. Dang hockey…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yeah, sorry for the slow night guys. Raw being taped hurts a lot.

      • Xavier

        Fans couldn’t even wait half a day. They just had to spoil themselves smdh

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I know… It is sad. Spoilers kill this business. Just ask TNA.

    • Tom Mayer

      How much money Vince has left after this week

  • Splat

    Seth just used Tyson Kidd’s finisher.

  • Jake Mathis

    Batista is totally carrying this match right now.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He can call moves while hyperventilating?

      • Xavier

        LMAO

      • BlazeKing

        Damn, you just threw him under a double decker bus!

    • Tom Mayer

      The only thing Batista is doing is sucking the oxygen from the first five rows ringside

  • Xavier

    This hasn’t been a very good RAW

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hobotista, that face doesn’t look scary. It looks like you were kicked in the slats.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, we have a German Announce Table?

    • CJ Blaze

      Ja ;)

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sweet!

  • Splat

    Roman with the headbunt while having an eye injury… :)

  • Tom Mayer

    That is one insane official time keeper…and commentator

  • Danny Philippi

    That entire match was a complete and utter mess. Just like the WWE creative think tank.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It was all over the place, but it worked for me. With all of the egos and personalities in these two groups, it is hard to keep them all in the spotlight.

  • Danny Philippi

    NBA West Finals Update:
    Spurs up 67-59 Halftime.

    It’s time for the Braden Walker Smoking ad!

    • James Larochelle

      Nani?

    • BlazeKing

      the *definitive* Braden Walker Smoking ad

  • Danny Philippi

    Paige with her homecoming NOW!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That POP! Paige is over in England!

  • Tom Mayer

    Alicia fox…hasn’t this train already wrecked before?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It has, but she is showing signs of getting better.

  • Xavier

    Is Alicia Fox still dating Wade Barrett?

    • Tom Mayer

      If not I know what he said just before he broke up with her :)

      • Xavier

        Lol

    • BlazeKing

      I don’t really think so. Never seen them together in New Orleans

  • Dustyn

    Nice!

  • CJ Blaze

    That’s one way to get heat

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Alicia is cracked!

  • Danny Philippi

    Not even Paige can’t resist hometown humble pie.

  • BlazeKing

    “You can take that. Leave my hat alone.”
    JBL is such a fool, haha!!!

  • Splat

    So, Paige vs Fox at Payback?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Looks like it!

      • Avalanchian

        Still can’t believe how pathetic they make Paige look.

        • BlazeKing

          Amazing, ain’t it?

      • David Jr.

        You want Fox vs. Paige at Payback?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Not really, as we have seen this match 4-5 times now, but that is what it looks like we are getting anyways.

  • Danny Philippi

    Anyway, Alicia might be getting this push to be pushed out the door.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I doubt it. If she is getting a character tweak like this and a push, I’m sure she is around for a while.

      • David Jr.

        Isn’t she the 2nd longest tenured diva in the WWE right now?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          3rd. Layla, Natalya, Fox.

          • David Jr.

            Darn Natalya’s got a 2 month advantage on her, well my guess was’t that off.

  • https://www.facebook.com/jmccrary Jerry McCrary

    I dont get why people hate alicia fox

    • Tom Mayer

      Cameron doesn’t, she’s alicias biggest fan

    • BlazeKing

      I like her, but her attitude cost her.

    • James Larochelle

      I like her. She looks like a hoot and a half.

      • Splat

        I’ll give you the hoot but I’m not sure about the half.

    • Xavier

      Again, didn’t come up through the Indies.

    • gurl bye

      at one time
      she was pretty bad
      but she’s shined for the past weeks

      • BlazeKing

        At that point in time where she started getting sloppy, her attitude also got bad. She needed to work on that more than the wrestling!

        • gurl bye

          but that sass tho

  • Splat

    Are we not getting Adam Rose?

  • Danny Philippi

    This Open Thread has come a part at the seams. #tonightnotthenight

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Eh, being taped and against the Spurs/Thunder game is sure to hurt it.

  • Avalanchian

    Poor Henry gonna get beat by Dolph. Wanted Henry to get a final push before his contract is up.

    • BlazeKing

      I don’t think he just wants to “leave”. He wants it to look like he’s battling to the end but he just isn’t what he used to be. He probably doesn’t want the “One more match” chants.

  • Tom Mayer

    Swing and a miss king

  • CJ Blaze

    Woah

  • Danny Philippi

    Dolph Ziggler is the WWE’s version of Tony Romo.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ouch… That’s pretty harsh.

    • David Jr.

      Overrated?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    You know what I want to see? A Championship Scramble!

  • Danny Philippi

    This match is awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwful.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Dang… Missed it by “that” much!

    • David Jr.

      Thank you 86.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Major pop for Barrett!!!

  • BlazeKing

    Dat BnB appearance!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BNB + Mic = GOLD!

  • Danny Philippi

    Davey Boy Smith would be smiling from upstairs at BNB making England proud.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Freya rest his soul.

    • BlazeKing

      Rule Britannia!!!

  • Tom Mayer

    Juicy drop…so that’s where the original sin cara went

  • James Larochelle

    I’m so glad the Bad News gimmick got over. I love it.

    • Xavier

      It’s grown on me

      • James Larochelle

        He definitely made the most of the opportunity. A great lesson for the guys in the back.

    • Tom Mayer

      Troll gimmicks done right are very entertaining

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It is quite creative!

  • Tom Mayer

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Is it just me, or is he more high than RVD, Swags, the Hardys, and Sabu combined!

    • BlazeKing

      He had some dust… Some Goldust!!!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        :)

    • David Jr.

      Maybe the Adam Rose Express use to belong to Willie Nelson,

    • gurl bye

      420 means more than a number to him

  • Tom Mayer

    I’m waiting for him to bust out a “yeahhhhhh babbbyyyy yeahhhhhh”

  • Splat

    Where’s my cheeseburger?

  • Eddie Edwards

    I’m actually digging Adam Rose

    • gurl bye

      no.

      • Eddie Edwards

        Yes

        • gurl bye

          but i thought that was Daniel Bryan’s thing

    • Splat

      As you should.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And the fans are singing Swags music!

    • Tom Mayer

      And zeb yells”shut up!” Lol

  • Avalanchian

    Zeb spinning some mic magic

    • BlazeKing

      I hope “mic magic” gets in the urban dictionary!

  • Xavier

    Is he gonna have this Entourage with him everytime he wrestles?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      YEP!

    • Frank Rizzo

      Maybe we will find out if he actually has a match one day..

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I see they dug out VKM’s old pepto suit for one of the Rosebuds!

  • Xavier

    I’m actually enjoying this segment

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Dirty Dutch vs. Adam Rose? PLEASE!!!!!

  • Tom Mayer

    Jtg is the bunny, I just know it

    • David Jr.

      It’s actually Damien Sandow.

      • BlazeKing

        Stop it. Just stop this mess!!!

      • Tom Mayer

        Experience the awesome power of…carrots

    • BlazeKing

      Damn man… I was about to take a sip!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Bunny is a white guy.

  • Danny Philippi

    Rangers win 3-1 and take a 2-0 series lead. Two wins from the Cup Final.

    • David Jr.

      Which would make it the 20th consecutive American team to win the Cup.

  • Danny Philippi

    Legends House has a better concept than this Raw episode. LOL

    • David Jr.

      If instead of fighting Luke Harper, if John Cena made cabbage rolls, would this make this a better Raw?
      Or if Luke Harper says to John Cena, Big Muscles don’t mean Nothing.
      Or Michael Cole say Holy Balls?
      Or if TNA’s Kenny King came out not to wrestle but to be a Chippendale?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        HECK NO!!!

        • BlazeKing

          I said yes.

          Don’t judge me….

      • James Larochelle

        Well maybe if it was an exceptional recipe for cabbage rolls…

        • David Jr.

          Like Pat Pattersons? Oh wait we still haven’t found that out yet.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Why do I see Roddy doing this even outside of a scripted show?

    • James Larochelle

      Is it because he’s Scottish?

      • BlazeKing

        I see Drew doing the same thing too! He really is a goofball sometimes.

    • Tom Mayer

      Wwe legends get drunk, and go larping = network show

      • Jesse Sherwood

        YES!!! I’d pay extra to watch that!

        • Tom Mayer

          Lightning bolt! Lightning bolt!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Speaking of Sandow… Has he been on tonight? Even on the App?

    • CJ Blaze

      I don’t know about app. He wasn’t on Superstars either

  • Danny Philippi

    25 minutes? Let’s shoot for 550 at least.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye!

  • Avalanchian

    Would love to see the Boogeyman join the entourage

  • William Regan

    Was that Zack Ryder with Adam Roses party posse?

    • James Larochelle

      I had to double check that myself

    • Jesse Sherwood

      At this point, that would be a step up for him.

    • BlazeKing

      I wouldn’t be surprised if it was Curt Hawkins.

    • Tom Mayer

      Are you a lemon, bro?

  • Danny Philippi

    Smackdown looks like it will be a must-watch for a change.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Don’t Bolieve the Boll crap

    • James Larochelle

      It’s bo-llocks

  • Jesse Sherwood

    DEP!

  • Dustyn

    My friend just asked, why does Bray blow out his lantern, then come out with it lit? lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That sea of light is so beautiful…

  • BlazeKing

    I always sing the song.

    Don’t judge me…

    • gurl bye

      the song slays

    • Tom Mayer

      Me too, don’t be ashamed :)

      • gurl bye

        to add to that
        you shouldn’t be ashamed of any song you like
        that only comes from the fear of being judged

        • Tom Mayer

          Exactly, same with being a fan of anything you like

        • BlazeKing

          Oh i’m definitely not ashamed of it. I will sing that song *wherever* I hear it, lol.

          • gurl bye

            strange stares are compliments as far as i’m concerned.

        • David Jr.

          I was driving in my car by myself today listening and singing “Do you want to Build a Snowman?” So I agree.

          • gurl bye

            frozen is life
            don’t let anyone tell you different

          • David Jr.

            Most people I know love Frozen.

          • gurl bye

            that’s because it’s the best soundtrack i’ve heard for a Disney movie.

          • BlazeKing

            Disney soundtracks never really disappoint me.

          • gurl bye

            i don’t listen to them a lot
            but this was the one i actually took effort in finding.

          • BlazeKing

            I’m about to sample that song now just to understand the feels!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I bought it the day it was uploaded to iTunes.

      • BlazeKing

        I had it way before WWE uploaded it too!

        • gurl bye

          hipster lyfe.

    • James Larochelle

      You really WANT us to judge you, don’t you?

      • BlazeKing

        You can judge my singing, lol.

  • gurl bye

    i don’t even mark out for hogan anymore
    i guess i really am starting to lose interest in wrestling.

  • Avalanchian

    So glad Bray told us he’s here London. Think we knew that from earlier.

  • Danny Philippi

    I guess Kane put in a request to be off tonight’s Raw (since it’s May 19TH!).
    The WWE Director of Operations happily obliged.

    • Tom Mayer

      Turns out May 19th is insurancecon

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I don’t blame him… Sad that they didn’t do something for it. That could have been fun!

  • Danny Philippi

    NBA West Final Update:
    Spurs up 89-82 at the start of the 4th quarter.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Keeping up by just enough. #GoSpursGO

  • Tom Mayer

    Lol what a song

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Love the John Cena Sucks to his theme! That is one of the better new chants in a while!

  • David Jr.

    So the crowd is now Rosebudding during Cena vs. Harper?

  • Xavier

    Another good match between Cena/Harper

  • CJ Blaze

    Wow, Harper is really talented and flexible for his size

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’s one of the next great “Big Man” workers.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Harper is going crazy, and it is awesome!

  • Danny Philippi

    Imagine if WWE did a live Raw from London. A wrestling crowd at 1am would be epically intriguing.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Superkick by Harper!

    • BlazeKing

      I was like “Oh Snap!”

    • Avalanchian

      Not that super for just a 1 count. But yes it was amazing.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It was unexpected, and that is always a positive thing!

  • Tom Mayer

    Woot 550

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Flash speed Sister Abigails!

    • BlazeKing

      He ran thru em!

      • Tom Mayer

        Mai gawd, he has a family!

        • BlazeKing

          What about the children?!?!

          • James Larochelle

            They’re already cried out because ADR lost.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And a Michinoku Driver!

  • BlazeKing

    And one more!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    He’s got the whole world… In his hands…

  • Avalanchian

    With Bray dominating it just makes me feel he is gonna lose at Payback.

    • Xavier

      Doesn’t really matter at this point. THis feud has already taken Bray to new heights. So it’s mission accomplished

      • Avalanchian

        Depends who they match him up with after Cena. Any thoughts?

        • Xavier

          Good question. I’d say Bryan when he returns. I really wish creative wouldn’t have burned through that feud earlier this year. I hated when Bryan joined the Wyatts, it was a very dumb angle

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He’s a bonafide main eventer now. One feud, and he is now primed for the top of the card for years to come.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “Bray’s gonna kill you” chant!

  • James Larochelle

    Abigailed him out of his sneaker.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Knocked Cena out of his shoes!

  • Danny Philippi

    Sister Abigailed out of his sneakers!

  • Dustyn

    Great ending!

  • Tom Mayer

    Pretty weak raw but the ending and you guys made it fun…have a good week everyone

    • BlazeKing

      See Ya!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You too Tom! Next week will be much better!

  • BlazeKing

    That was an unexpectedly hilarious ending lmao!!!

  • gurl bye

    i think I’m going to start going on here more

    • BlazeKing

      Don’t hesitate. We’ve got cookies!!!

      • gurl bye

        chocolate chip?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I’ll make Coma Brownies! Chocolate Chunk cookies, layered with Oreos, layered with Triple Chocolate Brownies!

          • gurl bye

            TOO MUCH
            NOW THE WHOLE THING IS RUINED
            UGH

          • Jesse Sherwood

            They are really good! I make them for my kids once a month.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We’d be glad to see you more! Take care!

      • gurl bye

        as long as i have an interest in wrestling
        even if it’s really small (like now)
        i’ll be here

  • James Larochelle

    Good night folks. Back to work tomorrow morning

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night James!

  • Danny Philippi

    Overall, a decent Raw that saw Adam Rose, The Wyatt Family, and any other NXT graduate shine (besides Paige). The Beat the Clock challenge served a purpose of positioning the Intercontinental Championship as the workmen’s title. The Shield/Evolution brawl was like any other that has happened in the previous Raws. The ending was epic with Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper elevating their stock. John Cena, RVD, and Batista giving way to the future was a theme as well. Grade: C+. Nice to chat again on wrestlingnewsworld.com and lets hope a holiday Raw goes well next week. Till then, have a safe and pleasant week.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You too Danny!

  • Xavier

    Gonna call it a night, ya’ll have a blessed evening.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You too Xavier!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, it’s been fun guys! I’ll watch the rest of what I missed in the morning, but it has been fun talking to everyone!
