Raw Starts

In Ring Segment

Justin announces Trip to the ring. Trip out in his power suit, all by himself. He heads to the ring.

Trip – It’s funny, all day long I’m walking around backstage, no one wants to look me in the eye. They scatter like they’re scared that I’m going to blow a gasket. That I’m going to explode because the WWE WHC didn’t come back to The Authority, no, it stayed with Cena. (mixed) Now, I’ll admit I’m mad. I’m very mad today, madder than I’ve been in a long time! But I have options on how I handle this! I have options. You know what I’m going to do about it? (“What?”) I’m gonna… I’m gonna… I’m gonna Tweet my displeasure. I’m going to jump on social media and Tweet about it until my fingers bleed. I might even send an Instagram, or a Vine! (mocking big eyed face from Trip) That’s right, and on that Tweet, in however many characters I get, I’m going to threaten! That’s right, I’m going to riot! If that doesn’t work, then, by god, me and my friend Mark (mock tears in his voice), we’re gonna stop watching! That’s right! Or, hell, I have options. I’ll just fire everybody back there. I’ll fire all of you. (the fans) I’ll just throw you out of the building. Throw you out in the weather. That will end all my problems, right? (Heat) Or, I could just relax. I could relax, knowing that sooner or later, I always win. If I have to wait four more weeks to SummerSlam to win, so be it. But like a true genius once said, at SummerSlam, I can guaran-damn-tee that John Cena will no longer be the WWE WHC. (mixed) But, the question is who? Who gets the opportunity…

Orton’s music hits and out he comes. He’s still on the stage, walking out as he’s talking on mic.

Orton – H, H, are we really doing this? We’re talking about this? What about me and my re-match. Four months I’ve been waiting, ever since WrestleMania I’ve waited for my one on one re-match. You know it, I know it, these people know that I’m owed. You want to talk guarantees? I’ll guarantee you that if you put me in a one on one match with Cena at SummerSlam, I will beat Cena at SummerSlam.

Trip – I can appreciate that Randy, and while you make a compelling argument for why you should be in that match, and right now Randy you’re the front runner, but I haven’t made up my mind. I’m going to give everybody an opportunity to convince me tonight. The entire roster has the opportunity to convince me. I want somebody to impress me. I want somebody to go the extra mile and show me. I want somebody to get in here and show me that they want it more than anything in their lives. That they want it more than they breathe, more than they want anything…

Orton – You want to be impressed? If Kane would have done his duty last night, if Kane would have done his job at Battleground, I would be standing here before you with those titles around my waist. Surely you’re not considering Kane!

Fire erupts, and out comes Kane! Kane to the ring.

Kane – I hope that I am being considered to face Cena, because I know I can beat Cena. I know I can be the one to bring the Title back to The Authority. So long as I’m not acting as Orton’s protector. I am tired of babysitting.

Orton, off mic, waving his head in the air, talking smack at Kane. Trip steps between them, trying to head off a fight. Out comes Reigns through the stands and onto the apron, mic in hand.

Reigns – If you’re going to have a conversation about the WWE WHC, I think my name belongs in it. Because last time I checked, nobody wants to see Cena versus Kane. (heated agreement) An don’t nobody want to see Orton versus Cena again. (more heated agreement) It sounds like everybody wants to see Cena versus Roman Reigns! (huge pop)

Reigns steps into the ring, chin held high.

Reigns – Believe that!

Reigns with a superman punch on Kane. Trip flees the ring. Before Orton can do anything, Reigns turns to face him, slides from the ring so he’s not next.

Trip – I know what I believe. I believe that right now Roman Reigns is gonna have a match. I believe that Roman Reigns is going to face Kane and Randy Orton. And I believe that is gonna take place right, now!

At the bottom of the ramp Nikki smiles, Brie is in the front row. They hug. (Interesting to note that the chair Brie is sitting in doesn’t have any chairs behind it. Meaning it looks as though the hair was placed there just for her to be ringside.) They talk and Nikki to the ring. Steph’s music hits and Steph comes out.

Steph – Oh look, it’s the quitter, Brie Bella, my favorite Bella. Nikki, I love how you feigned surprise to see her, that was awesome. You know Nikki, it’s so interesting to see you out here. (Steph screwed up and meant to say Brie.) Just think, you went from being a world famous Diva, one of the biggest stars on E!’s Total Divas, to being just another face in the crowd. It’s actually quite fitting, and why are you in this position? Oh, because you abandoned your sister Nikki for your husband, Daniel Bryan. The B+ player.

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!” all around Brie who smiles at the fans.

Steph – Yes, Daniel Bryan was stripped of the WWE WHC and has been on the shelf ever since. Good move Brie, that was really smart. Truthfully, I’m so glad you’re out here, because you get to see Nikki get demolished by four other competitors in the ring, and I hope that you know, when you think about it, that it’s all because of you!

Brie (off mic) – You’re so pathetic. You’re such a bitch!

Steph stops her walking away and turns on Brie.

Steph – What did you call me?

“Bitch!” chants.

Steph – Security, eject this woman!

Brie holds up her ticket.

Steph – Oh, that’s cute, you’re a paying customer. You’ve got a ticket. I tell you what, you’re blocking the view of the people behind you. So take your seat Brie…

Brie wrenches the mic out of Steph’s hand, leaving Steph totally shocked.

Brie – You’re doing this out of spite. You’re doing this because I left my hand print on your face and taking it out on my sister. What kind of human being are you? (Security has a hand on Brie’s stomach, as if he’s trying to hold her back.) I’ll tell you who you are, you’re a vindictive BITCH!

Steph totally bitch slaps Brie. Brie tries diving over the barricade at Steph, but security is still standing there with Brie, grabs her and pulls her back as Steph is on mic.

Steph – I’m so scared! I’m so scared! Get her out of here, she’s pathetic. Quitter! Loser! (turning to the ring) Let that be a lesson to all of you, now ring the bell!

Sandow – You were expecting Michael Jordan? Bo, I took my talents from South Beach to my real home, Ohio, and Bolieve me, I speak from experience when I say, you should exit that ring, grab your bag, get in your car and drive away so no one has to see that ridiculous grin again.

Highlight Reel

Cole says a situation developed a moment ago, and was on the App.

DEP!

Bray – Miami, we’re here.

Out comes The Wyatt Family. (Interesting to not that the entrance is now showing blobs of light that look like the camera lights from the audience. They are anywhere from three LEDs down and ten across to 6 down and twenty across.) There’s more camera lights in the audience than I’ve seen, by far. At least twice as many lights as they’ve ever received on entrance, all waving back and forth. The Wyatts in the ring, with an eerie light only on them.

Bray – Hello everyone! (big pop) Welcome to the Highlight Reel! (not so much pop) Unfortunately your scheduled host Chris Jericho is unable to make it at the moment. (heat) He’s a bit indisposed, hahaha. Now, where, oh where, could Chris Jericho be? I wonder! Hahahaha!

Video from the App where Jericho was being interviewed, then The Wyatts came in and they attacked. King says this was in Jericho’s locker room. Bray hit Sister Abigail into a metal locker post! Bray sat down by Jericho and said, “You know Chris, sooner or later, they all fall down.” Then Bray got up and left humming.

Bray – Where is Chris Jericho? Where is your savior? Surprise, surprise, he ain’t here for you! But you know who is? I am! I am here for you, just like I have been everyday since I have been around! (Bray struggled and stumbled over that last line.) And I know what you’re thinking. I can read your thoughts. You think that because last night, Chris Jericho had his arm raised at the end of the night, that you think he is a better man that I. Hahaha! Do you really believe that I would burden myself with such petty squeamish things. A loss in a battle is nothing to me, because I know it is the war that counts. War, that’s my game man! I created war, and it wasn’t long ago that The Wyatt Family entered a WWE ring for the very first time. In our short reign of terror we have dismantled giants, have destroyed monsters, and most importantly brought so-called heroes to their knees, and I ask you, Chris Jericho, just who in the hell do you really think you’re dealing with? I am Bray Wyatt, the eater of worlds, and I am every bit the monster that they all think I am, Chris. You cannot measure me like you would a normal man. You cannot measure my by how many dollar bills I have in my pocket, because society is my plaything. (“What?”) You cannot measure me by the days of the year, because time is irrelevant to me. (“What?”) I live a hundred years a day, man. (“What?”) There’s been something ever since last night, it’s been recurring over and over in my head all day, it’s something Abigail used to say to me. (“What?”) She used to say, be careful going out and chasing vengeance Bray, because you will have to dig two graves. (“What?”) One for your enemy, and one for yourself. Unfortunately for you Chris Jericho, I am forever! Hahaha!

Bray drops to his knees, throwing the mic away, throws his head back and says, off mic, “Follow the buzzards!”

Backstage Segment

Trip – I understand that, but there’s just really no reason for you to face Cena at SummerSlam. You have the MITB contract, so you can cash it in when you have all the cards on the table. Don’t put them out, play them when you want to play them.

Rollins – I understand. I get all that. What’s the point? Every time I put a hand together, Ambrose is there to screw it up for me. I’m telling you he’s not going to stop until we stop him, I mean permanently. We need to shut him down, for good.

Trip – Cesaro.

Cesaro – Triple H.

They shake.

Trip – How are you?

Cesaro – If there’s anybody that should face Cena at SummerSlam, it should be me. I’m like a walking MITB contract, anytime you put me in a Championship match, I’ll get the job done. You’re all about what’s best for business, well I made a business decision, as of right now, I am no longer a Heyman Guy. (shock from the fans) I want to be your guy!

Trip smiles, and steps back to watch the fun.

Rollins – He already has a guy.

Cesaro – You?

Rollins – Yeah, haha, me! We don’t need you around here, okay?

Trip – Okay, alright, this is uncomfortable. Here’s the thing. This little bit of unfinished business running around here, named Dean Ambrose. You want to finish that business for me, tonight, in a match. That would be something that would impress me.

Cesaro – Consider it done.

Trip and Cesaro shake, then Cesaro leaves.

Rollins – What’s his deal?

Trip – Let’s see what he can do.

Rollins – Why not.

Cesaro out of the ring. Ambrose out on him. Cesaro back in, and Ambrose into the post, bad shoulder first. Backstage Orton and Rollins are looking on as Trip is on his cell. Ambrose to the floor, selling his shoulder with Cesaro all over him. Ambrose rolled into the ring, Cesaro in with a boot to the bad shoulder. Cesaro on Ambrose’s shoulder on the mat. Cole talks about Cesaro not being a Heyman Guy any longer. Ambrose slammed back to the mat by his shoulder. Cesaro really works over that shoulder, one of Cesaro’s knees on Ambrose’s ribs, the other on the side of his head. Finally Ambrose up, but a huge right drops Ambrose into a corner. Ambrose up, takes Cesaro down and all over Cesaro. Cesaro tossed out through the ropes. Ambrose over the top to land on Cesaro, but eats an upper cut!

Winner – Cesaro via DQ (9:49)

Backstage Segment

Renee – Triple H, can I get a word quick?

Trip – Actually going to make the announcement of who the opponent is at SummerSlam.

Renee (tentatively) – Don’t you think you should be with your wife right now?

Trip stops in his tracks, returns to Renee and glares down at her before leaving.

Commercial

In Ring Segment

Trip in the ring.

Trip – Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to John Cena’s opponent, and the challenger for the WWE WHC at SummerSlam.

Out comes Orton who looks smug about it all. He heads to the ring, but Reigns attacks before Orton makes it to the ring. Reigns all over Orton, sends him over the barricade. Orton takes off away from Reigns and Trip looks completely disgusted. Out comes Heyman to the stage to decent pop.

Heyman – Um, Mr. COO, you know how much respect I have for you sir, and I hate to point out the obvious, but Plan A just isn’t working with Orton, not while Reigns is around. Plan B, I like Seth Rollins, but every time Rollins is going to cash in, Dean Ambrose is going to stop him. Which is why, Triple H, The Authority has the uncomfortable decision now to agree with me, you need to make the dangerous choice of implementing Plan C.

Of course, out comes Brock Lesnar. Brock even gets pyro as he heads to the ring. Heyman trails behind him as Brock actually smiles at something some fans yell. Brock up on the apron, then into the ring, Heyman follows. Heyman talks to Trip off mic.

Trip cracks a smile, shakes Heyman’s hand, then shakes Brock’s hand to the shock of all on announce.

Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and my client, Brock Lesnar conquered Underaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania! (The fans were saying Heyman’s words right along with him, right from the first word.) Which is why at this moment, my client hereby officially announces his intentions to conquer John Cena (pop), and take the WWE WHC at SummerSlam! Now, my client officially acknowledges this divide that permeates through the WWE ‘Universe’. There’s those who wear their green t-shirts and their pump up sneakers, and they scream with great passion, their love and adulation for their hero by saying at the top of their lungs, let’s go Cena!

Of course the rest of the fans answer Heyman with, “Cena sucks!”

Heyman – And there are those who offer the contrarian opinion, and who’s mommies don’t tuck them into bed at night, and they will say with great fervor and conviction, Cena sucks! Now it doesn’t matter to my client, which side of the fence you want to ride on, this now practicing doctor of thuganomics is now in for a beating of a lifetime. I don’t just stand out here and spew hype and hyperbole, I exploit historical facts to shove my points down your throat. To whit, I offer you, what happened the last time my client Brock Lesnar zeroed in on someone and decided to give them a beating.

They go to video from WrestleMania where Brock broke Taker’s streak and stunned the WWE ‘Universe’ and left us without words or reaction.

Heyman – You know, for years, everybody said, I want to be the one to beat Taker’s streak, but that wasn’t good enough for Brock Lesnar. At WrestleMania, Brock Lesnar gave such a violent beating to Taker that McMahon had to ride in the ambulance, because even our heartless chairman was concerned for a dead man’s being and life. Oh, John Cena, that same beating awaits you. (pop) And please don’t confuse my client with some stereotypical villain that comes out here and says that you can escape the beating by taking your Title and laying it down at my feet. Brock Lesnar makes you no such offer. John Cena, you can’t escape this beating! At SummerSlam, my client, Brock Lesnar will take John Cena down. Brock Lesnar will punch John Cena’s face in! John Cena, you’re going to be hurt by Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar is going to injure John Cena. Brock Lesnar is going to mangle John Cena, and then, and only then, Brock Lesnar is going to F5 John Cena and strip John Cena the dignity of being the WWE whcme way Brock Lesnar stripped Taker of his dignity and exposed the streak as just being a myth. The same myth that Brock Lesnar hears every week when Cena is said to be the greatest WWE Champion of all time. (heat) 15 world titles in ten years, that sounds like something worth conquering. Sounds like something worth conquering. I pledge allegiance to the greatness of the conqueror before me, and to his dominance, for which I stand, one Cenation under John, now divisible with no more hustle, loyalty, or respect for all. Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and I’m the one behind the one in 21-1, and at SummerSlam, my client Brock Lesnar will beat John Cena and become the WWE WHC.

      56 mins here.

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

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

      Great! We really appreciate you doing that!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Some one has to do the dirty work I’m glad it can be you.

      • Mike McCarthy

        It may be hard work, but it’s all possible, all you have to do is BOLIEVE!!

    • savokes

      We can always count on you Mike!!

  • Andrew

    hello everyone what did you guys think about battleground?

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

      I wasn’t overly impressed, except by the tag match.

      • Andrew

        i agree with that i loved the tag match the rest ehh

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

      I loved it. solid B+ PPV

    • Mike McCarthy

      I know I’m in the minority, but I enjoyed the main event. But only because I already had low expectations.

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

        It wasn’t bad, but it didn’t steal the show.

  • Scott

    Whats up everyone! Lets hope Raw is booked better than that poo-fest known as Battleground!

  • Scott

    Im calling for the Lesnar segment to underwhelm. HHH will reveal him, Heyman will talk…..alot. Thats about it! I say that because Cena isn’t scheduled to be there.

  • Andrew

    i hate we didnt get ambrose vs rollins but at least there was a brawl i guess

    • Gesus Oliver

      Did you pause for a second to think about the causalities from that brawl? That luggage will never roll right again!

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

      I think this is better. it builds to a bigger match. and that match is going to be for the gold briefcase.

    • Scott

      WWE should be ashamed of the false advertising! That was the match I was looking forward to the most. A lot of people are thinking Rollins is really hurt and they’re hiding it. If someone is injured and has to bail out on a match, then tell us. We will understand trust me! But advertising a match to only turn around and say it isn’t happening is BS

  • Gesus Oliver

    With yet again potentially Two Heyman Guy’s on Raw do you think Cesaro and Lesnar should be seen together like they did with Axel and Lesnar?

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

      didn’t they announce Cesaro isn’t a heyman guy anymore last week?

      • Gesus Oliver

        if memory serves me right which it usually doesn’t I thought they said Heyman was fired and no one had a real clue what.

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

          They said hey heard Cesaro fired him.

      • Mike McCarthy

        The announcers just passed on rumors they heard, none of them gave a definitive update because creative literally has no idea what they’re doing with him.

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

          All because VKM was screwing with the script last minute and didn’t come up with a clear answer.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Can’t wait for HHH to take over.

          • savokes

            Agree! I just feel that HHH has more of a sense for these guys and gals and has experienced what the culture of wrestling has turned into now-a-days. Vince seems stuck in his ways…and the 90′s-00′s

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

            You hit the nail on the head. VKM just doesn’t have his finger on the pulse of the fans the way he used to. Trip is younger and really seems to get it.

          • savokes

            case in point…NXT

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

            The fitness center too. He understands the industry, the fans, and what to do with it all.

          • Gesus Oliver

            I hate to make the distinction of VKM out of touch and HHH is better. It seems to be more personal vendetta ahead of business. At some point VKM does need to learn that the past is the past and they need to build toward a future now. The appeal of Rock has worn off. The appeal of Lesnar has worn off too to an extent. They can only bring back guys so much. Give people the significant backing they want whether it be a HHH guy or not. As WNW’s Resident NXT Expert I know first hand the brilliance of HHH down in Full Sail. While its merely a glorified indie, there is arguably more action in 50 mins than there is in a 3 hour raw. Quality over quantity quite possibly.

          • savokes

            in 2 sentences or less…sell me on NXT! (i always forget it’s on Thursday nights) Not that I don’t or couldn’t like it, but I just forget to turn it on…tell me why that’s a mistake =)

          • Gesus Oliver

            If you’re a fan of an later 90′s style storyline and wrestling then NXT is your place to go. It has quality and consistent story lines with talent and a crowd to keep you coming back for more. *bonus sentence* I write it live.

          • savokes

            your bonus sentence was the icing on the cake!

          • Gesus Oliver

            I was going to write out a list of talent in NXT right now and talent that have come from it. I find it an absolute joy watching NXT. I’m highly into the indie community here and NXT is no different.

          • David Jr.

            I’d love to see the Rock fight the Paper, because we know the Rock would have to lose.

    • savokes

      I think they should start to separate Cesaro from Heyman and Brock somehow

      • Gesus Oliver

        Why?

        • savokes

          personally, imo, Cesaro has lost steam ever since becoming a “Heyman guy”, it almost seems like he’s lost in the shuffle again. I know not everyone can be pushed at the same time, but I feel he was getting some really good natural babyface pop……and honestly, I REALLY just miss The Swing!

          • Gesus Oliver

            I completely agree. Heyman is brilliant but it seems with WWE seemingly not knowing what direction they want to go in results in people who aren’t already over unable to get over due to Heyman’s brilliance. Axel and Cesaro had/have huge potential to be a solid mid card worker but the on again off again storyline with Heyman and his clients results in them going stale. Heyman ironically has held back Cesaro’s potential.

          • savokes

            Great minds think alike! Plus, Heyman is the perfect guy for someone like Brock, who doesn’t like to talk too much. It’s almost too perfect of a relationship, that Heyman with anyone else pales in comparison, because no other current “client” was/is as big of a draw as Lesnar

          • Gesus Oliver

            My only argument would be Punk. Those two were larger than life characters. Brock was obviously the top guy but he’d be A1 and Punk the forever A2 spot. Everyone else is overshadowed. Punk never really needed a voice of the voice for the voiceless but let’s be honest those two together was brilliant television.

          • savokes

            Agreed! Punk and he were gold!

          • Gesus Oliver

            You’re a man after my own heart savokes.

          • David Jr.

            I think Paul Heyman is a great hype man but a terrible manager.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I don’t care what they do as long as Cesaro stops losing

  • savokes

    Good evening everyone!

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

    I think Reigns had a star making performance during the main-event for Battleground.

    • Andrew

      agree i thought he was very impressive

    • Scott

      The 3 outside running jump kicks (sorry I don’t know if he has a name for it) were insane!!! Not to mention the Superman punch to Cena looked flat out real! Especially with the way Cena’s head bounced on the mat.

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

        Agreed. also the spear through the baricade was insane too.

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

      He was quite impressive, but he has been more and more lately.

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

        Yes. he’s taking the opportunity and running with it. I don’t expect him to get big-headed from it due to his family heritage. I almost think Reigns has to win the WWE WHC at Wrestlemania 31.

  • Paul Jameson

    Safe to say 99% of all raw viewers are watching for Bork Lesley tonight

    • Mike McCarthy

      And they’re gonna milk it all the way to that dreaded final hour.

      • Paul Jameson

        Possibly, frankly I wish they’d just start off with heyman ditching cesaro

  • Scott

    I wonder if the travel cuts to the crew are starting to show their effect on the show production. Same set for every show, shows not running smoothly, questionable booking, overall product becoming stale. Just a thought…..

    • Gesus Oliver

      What do you mean by travel cuts? I’m unfamiliar with what you’re talking about.

      • Scott

        There was an article a little while back about how WWE stopped providing the tour buses for the crew. This forces them to get little rest.

  • Gesus Oliver

    I just heard that the next opponent for Cena was going to be CM Lesnar. Is there any truth to it?

    • Paul Jameson

      Brock Punk sounds funnier

      • Gesus Oliver

        MY CLIENT BRRRROOOCCKKKKKK PPUNNNNKKKKKK!

    • savokes

      tsk tsk tsk…you had to go there Gesus, didn’t you?

  • Paul Jameson

    We are now in the Too Many Chiefs Era of WWE

  • Mason Felps

    What’s up guys. Let’s get ready for what I hope is an action packed night!

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

    Cena putting reigns over before talking about retaining was huge for Reigns.

  • Paul Jameson

    Can Dolph ever get a main victory ever again?

    • Scott

      Wish he would but nope.

    • savokes

      Hopefully. But I think a feud with Miz could be interesting. Gives them both something to do

      • Paul Jameson

        A feud between miz and dolph would be flat IMO. Dolph looks like the michaels to miz’s janetty in the ring.

        • savokes

          yes, but I think Miz could handle better on the mic though

        • David Jr.

          They could do Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler like they did Shawn Michaels and Rick Martel at SummerSlam 92.

  • David Jr.

    I am the good prince Lancelot, I love to sing and dance a lot.

    • Gesus Oliver

      Yes thats fine and all but if you could put some clothes on first That’d be awesome.

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

        *snort*

        • David Jr.

          Snort?

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

            I don’t LOL much, I usually snort. But Gesus needs a beating for this snort as I snotted my computer screen.

      • David Jr.

        Stop the peeping.

        • Gesus Oliver

          We both know I can’t.

          • David Jr.

            Gesus, you got some splainin to do.

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

    Anyone else see Miz winning the IC title as a Vehicle to unify the titles in a 2 falls match for both the US and IC titles at Summerslam?

    • Gesus Oliver

      one thing I find highly interesting is the issue of during the AE we had an enormous amounts of titles full of meaning and worth to now where they are unifying titles like crazy that aren’t worth the dog poo on my shoe.

    • CJ Blaze

      I thought that last night. Even though the US Title hasn’t meant much, I still want it around. Or if they really put focus on the IC Title, then they take away the US Title, or unify. If this is the route they take, I prefer this road over Sheamus winning another battle royal for another title. Just my thoughts.

  • Danny Philippi

    Hey WNW Nation, I did not notice there was a “special edition” of Raw last night. Expect for the tag team title match and the battle royal, nothing else mattered and then they take Rollins/Ambrose off for a couple backstage segments. Ridiculous! Hope Raw delivers lie it has done for the past two post-PPV Raws have.

  • CJ Blaze

    Sup everyone!

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

      CJ! Don’t forget to IM me after the show.

      • CJ Blaze

        Of course :)

    • Gesus Oliver

      Welcome CJ!

      • CJ Blaze

        Yeah buddy… the “always awesome” CJ Blaze is da house.

        • Gesus Oliver

          sweet Gesus, kill it kill it!

          • CJ Blaze

            “A-Double” CJ Blaze?

          • Gesus Oliver

            That’s actually brilliant.

      • David Jr.

        CJ Parker’s here?

        • CJ Blaze

          No, he’s in Joliet or FL!

          • Gesus Oliver

            I really want to go to the Indie down in Joliet. I wish it wasn’t a 2.5 hour drive.

          • David Jr.

            No I’m talking about the lifeguard, CJ Parker.

    • savokes

      Sup! *With a “dude” head nod*

      • CJ Blaze

        Haha what’s up?

  • Danny Philippi

    Who starts off Raw tonight?
    A. The Authority
    B. John Cena
    C. Roman Reigns
    D. None the above

    • Gesus Oliver

      D. HHH

      • Gesus Oliver

        He’s going to sneak Lesnar in like King did Al Snow.

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

    I might have to setup plans to attend the house show the night before Night Of Champions.

  • Paul Jameson

    And of course…..Brock lesnar isn’t shown on the “who will HHH name as number one contender” graphic for tonight

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

      Of course not! Block will be the HUGE shocker that even Trip doesn’t want, but will be Plan C, so he will agree.

      • savokes

        I thought you kept spelling Brock wrong, and not on purpose, until i realized the “L” and “R” key are nowhere near each other…and you did it like 50 times! Hah, sometimes I’m a little slow

  • Paul Jameson

    Ambrose is coming off like a jealous boyfriend who’s gf slept with Rollins…….bad booking

  • Danny Philippi

    Worst decision made by WWE in a while not having the Rollins/Ambrose match last night. Having them both get double-DQ’ed would have been better.

    • Paul Jameson

      I’m fine with no match because it gives them a chance to extend the party to SS, but they will have the match

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

    I like the fact there was no ambrose/rollins match last night. it making the build better IMO.

    • Alex

      I was actually hoping Ambose would win last night to set up Rollins vs Ambrose in a 1v1 ladder match for the briefcase.

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

        I think we will get that kind of match without the first match. The Build is leading to some sort of extreme match.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Raw Pre-Show Update: Currently on the Pre-Show there’s been nothing but Battleground recap and #1 Contender speculation, but an announcement is going to be made in a moment in regards to Jericho/Wyatt.

  • Paul Jameson

    Side note…..Wyatt’s eye looked sick last night lol

  • Andrew

    i feel so bad for dolph ziggler smh so so talented but not getting used properly that a shame it really is

    • Paul Jameson

      I’m holding hope that he’s now in the IC title picture

      • Andrew

        i just he gets used right

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

    Ziggler is overrated.

    • CJ Blaze

      Whatcha talking bout Willis?

      • David Jr.

        Are you to young for Gary Coleman?

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

        The truth no one wants to say. Ziggler is overrated. People think he’s much better than he actually is because he oversells everything way beyond what is needed.

  • Danny Philippi

    Flo Rida > Macklemore LOL

    • Mike McCarthy

      They’re both terrible.

      • David Jr.

        I agree I would rather listen to Mic Higan.

        • Paul Jameson

          I daho was better

          • David Jr.

            You should here Al Aska sing Winter Wonderland.

          • Paul Jameson

            Cal Ifornia does a good urban remix of that song

            No ones ever seen Wy Oming sing.

      He is overrated.

        I knew you’d see that, I’m cool with your opinion….I just didn’t have anything else to finish it

  • Mike McCarthy

    Raw Pre-Show Update: Tonight on Raw, Chris Jericho will host an episode of the Highlight Reel with special guest, Bray Wyatt.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Raw Pre-Show Update: Tonight Nikki Bella will compete in a 4-on-1 handicap match against Eva Marie, Rosa Mendes, Alicia Fox & Cameron.

    • David Jr.

      If you had a mad scientist who would combine Eva, Rosa, Alicia and Cameron, would that make a good diva?

      • Paul Jameson

        I dunno…..another rare chance for Cameron to be with her 1/2 idol

  • Paul Jameson

    Yet another handicap match for the divas?!? Isn’t that double booking?! I mean watching most divas matches already puts the audience at a handicap

  • Danny Philippi

    Wow! Nikki in a 4 on 1 diva handicap match. It’s suck to be John Cena’s girlfriend, huh.

    • David Jr.

      Well she’s Super Girl, no wait that’s his cousin, um she’s Lois Lane. Wait she has no powers and didn’t they break up in the comics. She’s Wonder Woman.

      JESSE!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Savokes! How’s it going?

        • savokes

          great bro! you?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It’s been hectic. It’s crazy here.

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

      Jeese! *high five*

      • Jesse Sherwood

        *Goes for the fist bump, leading to an awkward moment*

        • David Jr.

          Bro Hug.

      But is the whole world in your hands

    WWE App Poll: Which Superstar do you feel got robbed worst at last night’s Battleground Pay-Per-View:
    Dean Ambrose 33%
    Roman Reigns 27%
    Dolph Ziggler 26%
    Naomi 8%
    Paige 6%

    • David Jr.

      Which one’s locker was right next to Emma’s last night?

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

    Gag Booker T please.

    • Paul Jameson

      Shucky ducky quack quack…….tell me you didn’t just say that

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

        I stand for what i said. Booker T can’t sing.

  • Danny Philippi

    What would gardener more viewers today: a WWE Saturday’s Night Main Event on NBC (John Cena defending the WWE Championship) or a UFC card on FOX (Jon Jones defending the UFC Light Heavyweight title).

    • Mike McCarthy

      Saturday Night Main Event, no question.

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

      UFC. People will watch to see Jon Jones in the hopes he’ll lose.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Superstars can wrestle multiple matches in one week. UFC fighters get nice leisurely breaks.

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

          that’s why a fight for UFC would be higher. You can’t see them often. and when it someone really good everyone wants to see knocked off that makes it even higher. Jones is one of those guys.

          • Mike McCarthy

            WWE can put on big main events on a weekly basis, UFC can’t match them.

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

            You keep going back to the weekly thing. that’s why UFC would win. You can watch WWE anytime you want. But if you want to watch Jon Jones you can’t except when he does fight. that drives interest.

    • David Jr.

      Is John Cena going to defend against the Big Show because Big Show is working for Alberto Del Rio. And Del Rio payed off a ref to get plastic surgery to look just like Charles Robinson?

  • Danny Philippi

    THREE MINUTES!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Raw Pre-Show Bold Predictions: Alex Riley predicts that tonight Miz/Sheamus will unify their titles. Booker T predicts that within the next 6-months Roman Reigns will be WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

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

    So glad this movie is over and Raw is starting, but I must go. Have fun!

    • savokes

      Peace out Kendra!

  • Danny Philippi

    SHOW TIME in 3, 2, and … 1!

  • K!NG

    I miss the opening pyro for raw

  • Danny Philippi

    00:00 and we start the clock.

  • savokes

    Here comes a talk fest between Heyman and HHH

  • K!NG

    LOL

  • savokes

    hahahahaha, trolling the IWC!

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

    Love these shots at the WWE Universe complaining.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Is this Triple H or Batista talking?

  • Paul Jameson

    This is classic

  • Xavier

    Lol Triple H taking shots at us , love it.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Direct shots at the IWC!

    • savokes

      HI-Larious!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Guys, I know this doesn’t really pertain to the folks who frequent here, but it has to be said thanks to the last week.

    Any trolling or flaming of members of this site, for any reason, is a bannable offense. ANY attacks on another member or a writer of any manner WILL result in a ban. We do not tolerate these sorts of actions, as we try to foster one of the few positive IWC environments. We are all for productive and positive debate. We love that there are many different opinions here. But we do not tolerate hatred or being nasty to people. You have been warned.

    • Tom Mayer

      Thanks for being on the ball when it comes to watching these things. I know I’m not perfect either but we do have an awesome community even if we don’t always agree on certain wrestlers.

    • The real Nick

      I was attacked, you banned me for disagreeing with Richard. The one who attacked me was left unpunished. Tell it like it is.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Guarran-damn-tee….takin’ one out of Big Andy’s playbook.

  • Michael

    Whatever happened to Tout? Wasn’t that supposed to revolutionize social media?

    • Xavier

      Not everything can be MySpace or Facebook I guess lol

    • CJ Blaze

      That was the big thing for 2012 and Raw 1000. After that, poof!

      • Michael

        Was that 2012? Damn. I guess I barely came out from under my rock.

        • Paul Jameson

          Cole killed it

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Those 3 years of stock options in the company aren’t paying out for their investment. I need to look at the numbers again, but even after the first quarter of monetized stock, they were on pace to lose 2.2 Million off of the deal.

  • Paul Jameson

    Triple h is trolling me Jesse……I’m gonna stop watching

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Lol! Triple Troll strikes again!

      • David Jr.

        He does have to nose to be a troll.

  • Xavier

    Orton is a buzz kill right now

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

    About damn time somebody called the IWC out for their fickleness.

    • Xavier

      Amen

  • David Jr.

    Randy Orton said It’s Damn True, Kurt Angle’s returning.

  • savokes

    First Randy steals Angle’s “Angle Slam”, now he steals his line “It’s Damn True!”

  • K!NG

    you heard it hear first tonight Slater Vs Cena at summerslam….

  • Mike McCarthy

    Heheh, Orton said duty…

  • Mike McCarthy

    Am I the only one that feels like this is going nowhere?

    • savokes

      Nope! Especially since we know who it’s supposed to be

  • Danny Philippi

    Triple H, I have three words for the Authority: HUG IT OUT! LOL

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

    If Kane and Orton Feud does that mean we do get HHH/Reigns for Summerslam?

  • K!NG

    While i have said since the first time i seen roman reigns he is going to be a star WWE has done a good job of protecting him as i dont think he has ever had a 1 on 1 match on ppv ever

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

    Reigns carries himself with such presence. I like him even more and more each week.

    • Xavier

      Same here

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Orton just slithering out of that ring like the snake he is…

  • Mike McCarthy

    8 minutes 55 seconds, Trip Timer has concluded.

  • Paul Jameson

    is the Authority handicapped?! They make alot of these now

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Not funny man…

      • Paul Jameson

        they make way too many of these matches. do they believe 1 on 1 isn’t viable anymore?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          They believe in stacking the odds in their favor, like most heel factions. But asking if they are handicapped strikes a nerve.

    • Michael

      Its best for business! Lol

  • K!NG

    forget tag team teddy we have handi-cap hunter

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

    This should be an interesting 2 on 1 match.

  • Danny Philippi

    I think neither Randy, Kane, or Roman will factor into Hunter’s “decision”. BOLIEVE THAT!

  • Harlie Boucher

    Time for some Raw!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Great to have you this week Harlie!

      • Harlie Boucher

        Thanks, even though I’m late!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Hey, I was about 30 minutes late myself. I have my kids this week.

  • Owen Gold

    If they go the way i think they might with sheamus, Ziggler and miz we could get some interesting TV and matches!

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

      Maybe Kurt Angle/The true Voldemort/Jericho at WM 17 2 falls match with each fall for a title?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Oh, Benoit’s name is allowed here!

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

          I know. I just felt like playing it from WWE’s side

          • Owen Gold

            That would be pretty good! Sadly I don’t think it would happen, but nice thinking!

      • Michael

        Wrestlemania 2000

    • Alex

      I’m hoping for a Triple Threat Unification match at Summerslam. I think a Unification Bout is likely but I don’t know if it’ll include Ziggler.

      • Owen Gold

        Same here! He could be included, due to him being last eliminated, though l am doubtful….

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom Phillips & Eden welcome us and Tom recaps the opening segment. Tom says everybody is putting their hat in the ring to get a WWE World Heavyweight Championship slot, they will be interviewing various superstars throughout the night as to why they should be picked. Eden will be interviewing Adam Rose later, and Tom will interview Y2J, Chris Jericho.

    • David Jr.

      Adam Rose vs. John Cena, the last time someone rode a bus to SummerSlam, he won, by countout, but they still celebrated like he won the WWF Championship.

      • Michael

        I believe that was an “Express” as well too.

        • David Jr.

          Yep, the Lex Express.

  • Danny Philippi

    Miami getting hyped about Reigns like he’s related to someone.

  • Michael

    Didnt WWE do this last year? John Cena picked his own opponent though? Whatever happened to the classic #1 contender match on the previous ppv? WWE is getting lazy.

    • CJ Blaze

      Yeah Cena chose Bryan.

    • K!NG

      the last #1 contender match i can remember on a PPV is Sheamus vs john morrison in 2010 they are far and between any more

      • Alex

        I wish they’d bring that back. It could really help some of the weaker undercards we’ve seen.

        • Michael

          Thats what im saying

  • savokes

    if everyone TRULY had an opportunity to become the #1 contender and face Cena at SS, who would y’all want? why?

    • Owen Gold

      Ziggler, ambrose, Rollins.

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

      Roman Reigns. Just because I’d like to see how Reigns handles himself in a 1 on 1 main-event match

    • Mike McCarthy

      Cesaro.

    • Andrew

      cesaro or reigns

  • Danny Philippi

    Zach Ryder reference by JBL. ZING!

  • Paul Jameson

    enjoy raw everyone.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      See you later Paul!

  • Danny Philippi

    I haven’t ate at a Taco Bell and from that commercial, I am not missing anything noteworthy.

    • Mike McCarthy

      You’re missing out on the true meaning of life my friend.

      • David Jr.

        Spending Half an hour in the bathroom is the true meaning of life?

        • Michael

          Not if you’re immune haha

      • savokes

        by “true meaning of life” Mike means the unfortunate experience of actual lava flowing from ones arse the next day after eating Taco Bell

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

    Batista’s movie is coming soon. Would not be surprised to see him come back next week for promotion.

  • savokes

    I hope this RAW isn’t like the RAW 3-4 weeks ago when it was commercial break after commercial break after commercial break…it just breaks up the flow of the entire night

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We’re thrown straight into the action, Kane enters the ring with Reigns. Reigns with a shot to the gut and a headbutt, multiple shots to the face. Orton distracts Reigns and Kane takes advantage, Orton tags in and lots of stomps on Reigns. Orton then poses in the opposite corner. Reigns with an uppercut, and throws Orton into another corner, Reigns goes for a whip but Orton counters and whips Reigns into the corner. Two-count. Headlock on reigns. Orton keeps it locked in throughout the rest of the feed.

  • Danny Philippi

    Which Miami-based team had the best run in their sport?
    A. 2003 Marlins
    B. 1971-1973 Dolphins
    C. 1987-1989 Hurricanes
    D. 2011-2013 Heat

    • Mike McCarthy

      B.

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

      Put the marlins in is terrible due to the fire sales after winning.
      B is the answer. the only undefeated team in Football history.

    • David Jr.

      No love for the 2006-2007 Florida Gators?

  • Scott

    I hope we get an epic Ambrose/Rollins segment tonight!

  • ohmygawd

    where’s JR when you want him?

    • David Jr.

      In the past.

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

      I like Cole. He’s not JR but he’s not bad IMO.

      • Alex

        Face Cole is decent. Heel Cole is easily my least favorite wrestling commentator of all time.

        • David Jr.

          You must have missed the Mike Adamle days.

          • Alex

            I was there….he was pretty terrible but I still think Heel Cole was worse. Adamle came off like an idiot but Heel Cole ruined every match he commentated by making it about him….

  • K!NG

    So who is brock going to destroy tonight to impress HHH?

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

      The entire WWE lockeroom

    • savokes

      HHH

  • Paul Jameson

    sweet, inventory cancelled…just in time to see Orton be the usual viper self.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Awesome!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, didn’t Kane just technically tag Orton by throttling him?

    • savokes

      yes he did! Illogical ending

    • Paul Jameson

      that requires us to use logic, do they want us to use that?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nope, they hate us and our friends named Mark!

        • savokes

          It would have been 1000x better if he said “smark…oops, I mean Mark, my bad!”

  • K!NG

    This is just setting up for their summerslam match

    • Paul Jameson

      i’d rather them set up now and build story than last minute…right?

      • K!NG

        no story lines work best when just slapped together at the last minute lol

        • Paul Jameson

          i know what you mean! or when you throw the script away and cancel a match for very little reason….but at least that still did help ambrose…

          • K!NG

            from the looks of battle ground last night i think they re wrote the show at least 4 times

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

    Sets up Orton vs Reign for SS

  • Danny Philippi

    Randy Orton is more garden snake than viper recently.

    • Xavier

      Lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’d go slug, but same difference!

    • savokes

      I’d say he’s those rubber snakes you hide to freak someone out…they initially see it and react, only to realize its plastic and then have no feeling towards it at all

  • Scott

    God I wish Kane would go back to being The Big Red Machine. Old mask and all! I know it wont happen but it really would be awesome!

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

      do you have a friend named Mark?

      • Paul Jameson

        hey, I’d mark out for the Original Red Machine…not the Demon Kane. I can’t blame him.

        • Scott

          Here Here!

  • Michael

    Another handicap

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Who wants to bet that Brie Mode is returning?

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

      I’d be disappointed if she didn’t

    • Mike McCarthy

      Can’t a foolish man like myself hope for Kharma? And be disappointed when it turns out to be Brie?

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

      Masked Brie

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Brioce Bellamissimo?

      • Paul Jameson

        Briedust

  • Danny Philippi

    Gosh, Stephanie’s IQ is better than those four broads combined.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The sad thing is I think she actually still doubles their combined IQ!

  • Paul Jameson

    Part of me wishes Tom would pull Cameron aside and ask her what its like to team with her idol in this upcoming divas match.

    • Scott

      Ill never forget the look on Steve Austins face when she said her favorite match was Melina vs Alicia Fox. Priceless!

      • Paul Jameson

        I keep hoping they’ll put that relaunch reruns of Tough Enough just so I can see that episode again…just makes me smile.

  • Danny Philippi

    Wish Nikki can gather former divas to counter Stephanie but I know it will just be Naomi, Natalya and her sister, Brie.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Eden is interviewing Adam Rose. She ask why Triple H should pick him. Who better to face John Cena at the biggest party of the summer than Adam Rose? Because it’s party time all the time! Eden asks what it would be like if Rose was champion. He says it would be epic, it would change the entire playing field, could you imagine what he could do to the Title? He could put strawberries on it! So, Triple H, don’t be a lemon! Be a rosebud!

  • K!NG

    Swagger and Rusev had a better match last night even with a count out then Bray vs jericho did which is sad to say…..

  • Mike McCarthy

    Payback was over 50 days ago, and they still won’t stop showing replays of that…

    • Paul Jameson

      and there’s why lol

  • Michael

    This team has a total of 6 moves between the four of them.

    • Paul Jameson

      and nikki has 2 of them.

      • David Jr.

        Moves or something else?

        • Paul Jameson

          definitely meant moves…..or something that rhymes with moves….

  • David Jr.

    Payback was only Last month? it seems so long ago.

  • CJ Blaze

    Brie!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Brie in the crowd = Interference confirmed and Steph Segment!

    • Paul Jameson

      and yes chants….can’t forget the yes chants…

  • Mike McCarthy

    What a surprise! So shocking! Wow! Quality television!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Did you let Doge take your laptop for a moment?

      • Mike McCarthy

        Doge?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          That dog meme. I apparently pay attention to FB too much.

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

    Steph throws brie out of the arena.

  • Laurenz

    Another slap on steph.

  • Paul Jameson

    please tell me we are getting a Step v Brie at SS!!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We have to have it!!! Steph hasn’t competed in about a decade!

      • David Jr.

        Who is the last female she fought? I know her last match is the I Quit Match against her dad.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Trish, during the Linda comatose storyline.

        • Paul Jameson

          trish…wasn’t it?

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

    The pop when Bryan returns that pop will be HUGE.

  • Xavier

    That face the guy next to Brie makes when Brie called Stephanie a b**** was priceless

  • Paul Jameson

    Brie needs to talk to Jericho…I so want someone to teach her to call Steph a trashbag….bottom feeding…..well you know where i’m going….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Steph just hit a non employee! Why isn’t JBL calling for assault charges on Steph?

    • Paul Jameson

      cause Vince didn’t tell him to? lol

  • Smark Twain

    Steph/Brie & Ambrose/Rollins will be my favorite Summerslam matches,

  • savokes

    Be a Star now Steph, Be A Star

  • Mike McCarthy

    Wow! So cool! Almost exactly what we saw at Payback!

  • K!NG

    eva got a win lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    Can we at least acknowledge that this wasn’t a handicap match? But in fact a Tornado tag Handicap match!

  • Xavier

    I forgot Rose was still on the roster

    • David Jr.

      Who’s Rose?

      • Paul Jameson

        rosa mendez….

        • David Jr.

          I didn’t know she was called Rose.

    • Avalanchian

      I’m happy Rosa went back to her sexy hair instead of the awful bleach blonde

  • Mike McCarthy

    Steph looks much better like this..

  • K!NG

    the red dress fits steph so perfect tonight

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

    i think people finally agree with cole with something.

  • Danny Philippi

    When it comes to a women’s divison, I leave it to Gail, Angie, Madison, and others on Spike TV.

    • David Jr.

      Angie?

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

        Angelina Love?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          *Barfs*

        • David Jr.

          I know who he meant, it was a more, of really her.

  • Avalanchian

    So Brie gets to come back due to a lawsuit. Awesome.

  • Michael

    Cena vs Hornswoggle vs El Torito. Book it

    • Mike McCarthy

      Cena vs. Hornswoggle on El Torito’s shoulders wearing a trench coat.

  • Dustyn

    Any chance Victoria would ever return?

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

      Personally I think it would be best if she came in as a trainer.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        They have arguably the greatest female wrestler alive training the ladies of NXT: Sara Del Rey

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

          agreed. but having help wouldn’t be a bad thing would it?

          • Dustyn

            I think Victoria would be a good fit as a trainer for NXT. She knows the business (WWE especially).

        • Alex

          Yeah I’ve never seen her but I keep hearing good things about her, hopefully they’ll at least let her wrestle on NXT soon?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I doubt it. WWE hired her just to train people. Which is a crying shame!

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

            She’s been in the company as a trainer for 2 years now. I’d say it’s unlikely she’ll ever wrestler for them.

    • Smark Twain

      Knowing WWE, they’d probably say she’s too old now

    • ldb

      I wish Victoria is my favorite. She’s hotter and more talented than just about anybody on the divas right now.

  • James Larochelle

    So many fond memories of Saturday Night’s Main Event.

    • Alex

      It’s a shame it hasn’t been brought back in a while. I’d love to see it on the Network as like a live special type thing.

      • James Larochelle

        The need isn’t there anymore. It was great for the time getting to see something other than squash matches on free tv.

    • David Jr.

      Like Uncle Elmer’s wedding.

      • James Larochelle

        Okay they weren’t all winners but Bret vs. Macho Man was a great match.

        • David Jr.

          It’s the match that showed people that Bret Hart could be a singles wrestler.

  • Dj Marvelouz

    anyone notice that the screen went black when nikki hit the mat outside the ring?? im sure nikkis boobs mustve popped out lol

  • David Jr.

    I want to watch the Saturday Night’s Main Event with Uncle Elmer’s wedding.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom welcomes us and recaps the last segment. He shoots us to The Usos post-match interview at Battleground. Eden asks how they feel after their victory. For two years night-after-night they’ve proved time and time again that The Usos are the best tag team in the WWE. The other Uso says that they wouldn’t be in this position if they didn’t bring their A game. Time for them to celebrate.

  • Bryan N.

    What’s good everybody? Just settling in as the slapfest was underway

  • Bryan N.

    Wow and now they censor it on the replay.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    It’s time to BOLIEVE!!!

  • Dustyn

    Lebron mention?

  • savokes

    Why can she say B*** live but they mute it during replay?

    • Alex

      Probably has to do with the PG Rating, they can say it live because well….it’s live and it’s kind of like they “don’t know” she’s going to say it. But since its being re-aired they’re required to censor it.

  • Scott

    Wow they censored the part that made the segment good?!?!?! WTF

  • Paul Jameson

    we all called this!

  • savokes

    HAHAHAHAHA LBJ

  • Scott

    Didnt see that one coming……lol

  • Michael

    Bo Dallas vs Tim Tebow. Book it

  • Dj Marvelouz

    bo dallas shoulda won the intercontinental tittle

  • Mike McCarthy

    JBL: “Nobody’s from Ohio.”

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Fun fact: Out of the post WM NXT call ups, Bo was the first to suffer a loss.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Paige.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Ah, True! Burt who notices the Diva’s? :)

        • Mike McCarthy

          Very good point.

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

          do you count rusev?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Rusev is undefeated on the main roster, I thought.

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

            lost to Reigns via DQ on Smackdown.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Ah! So that would mark him as the first then! I missed SD this week.

    • David Jr.

      When did Bo lose?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Last night at the Battle Royal. I count that as a loss as well. But I was corrected below that Rusev was the first male, and Paige was the first overall. So technically, Adam Rose is the only undefeated one now!

        • David Jr.

          Weren’t Bo Dallas and Rusev in the battle royal that put Roman Reigns in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship ladder match at Money in the Bank, so wouldn’t that have been Bo Dallas and Rusev’s first loss?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’ll have to double check that.

          • David Jr.

            I know Rusev was because it came down to Rusev and Reigns and I just checked and Bo Dallas was in that match too. It was on the June 16th Raw.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I was right that Bo was the first loss, since he was eliminated first! :)

          • David Jr.

            Yes you were. Glad I could help prove it.

          • David Jr.

            Rusev actually lost first, He was in the Royal Rumble. But, you’d still be right because you said post WM call ups and the Rumble was before WM, so Rusev wouldn’t count.

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

    Damien Sandow had to do this. we all knew it was coming.

  • K!NG

    that guy is a idiot for holding up a sign lebron is a diva as a heat fan the guy brought us 2 titles in four years and to 4 finals

  • Smark Twain

    Is Sandow now considered top tier comedy or bottom tier super jobber?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Both.

    • Paul Jameson

      someone has to take over for Santino….

      • Smark Twain

        Unortunately, should have been Slater

        • Paul Jameson

          slater lost to numerous legends and hall of famers….he’s been given his low man on the totem pole status, but just can’t bring the funny like santino did…so sandow gets the call. but i agree…shoulda been slater.

  • Dustyn

    Has Sandow held any titles in WWE?

    • CJ Blaze

      Nope

      • Dustyn

        What a shame!

        • CJ Blaze

          With MITB, it seemed he was going to get the World Title, but WWE had other plans. It is sad.

          • Dustyn

            He lost the cash in match on RAW right?

          • CJ Blaze

            Yep. 10-28-13 Raw, lost to Cena.

          • Dustyn

            Maybe his moment will come, one day.

          • CJ Blaze

            At this rate, all we can do is hope that one day we will see the return of the Intellectual Savior of the Masses.

          • Paul Jameson

            we aren’t unwashed anymore?

          • CJ Blaze

            Oh yeah, I forgot Unwashed!

          • Paul Jameson

            to quote HBK….I know I’m a little scuzzy…..

  • Dj Marvelouz

    atleast the gave damien some nice jordan sneakers! lol

  • David Jr.

    One Week Bo fights a face, next a heel, after that a face, and again a heel?

  • Smark Twain

    Ballin’!!!! Wait..

  • Mike McCarthy

    Damnit Jerry!! Miz is from Hollywood now!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      with his moneymaker….

  • Laurenz

    Ballin. I love sandow he makes this gimmick good.

  • K!NG

    Sadly the miz is the only one to bring a championship to cleveland since the 60′s

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

    15-Bo

  • K!NG

    the match was not explosive king

    • Seth

      It was explosive because it was the first singles match after back to back handicap matches.

      • K!NG

        there were two handi-cap matches at battleground last night? must of missed them

        • Seth

          Every show of late bleeds into each other at this point in my brain.

    • Bryan N.

      Kane’s pyro couldn’t have even made it explosive…

      • K!NG

        no not at all jericho had this same type of performance last year against ryback

  • Bryan N.

    Irrelevant, but I can’t wait for this Fozzy album to release!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’ve been a Fozzy fan since I heard the 2005 single Enemy. I can’t wait either! I have it preordered so it will download as I sleep tonight.

      • Bryan N.

        Every time ‘Lights Go Out’ comes on my local rock radio, my poor car speakers are pushed to their maximum

      • David Jr.

        I like them better when Moongoose McQueen was the lead singer.

  • Danny Philippi

    With the Highlight Reel up next, we can get back to serious storytelling and not some Springer crossed with sport satire.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom standing by with Y2J in the locker room ! He asks how he’s feeling after his match. Jericho is ecstatic that he won, Bray’s one of the best people he’s ever faced. He still can’t figure out Bray’s mindset, when he’s shaving in the morning he expects Bray to pop up in the mirror behind him. Jericho pauses mid-sentence and walks away, the camera turns and The Wyatt Family is standing there. They immediately start attacking him and get the upper hand very quickly. Wyatt hits the Sister Abigail onto the locker. “You know Chris, sooner or later, they all fall down.” He starts to hum “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands” and walks away.

    • Seth

      To do an angle on the freak’n app like that…BOLOGNIA! I would say something far more vulgar but I’d rather go with something like that. SHOW IT ON TV YOU IDIOTS!

      • Mike McCarthy

        I think that’s why I cover it…

        • Seth

          I know but I get very angry when they do an angle or a match finish on the app. I apologize if it seems like I’m taking it out on you but damn this company knows how to push my buttons sometimes.

  • Seth

    Good to see the new and improved Jeritron 5000 after Jericho smashed HBK’s brain in.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And the one he had tossed out of the ring during the Punk feud.

      • Seth

        The Jeritron 5000 takes more abuse than Zack Ryder does at the wrong end of my jokes.

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

    this is bot an eerie and awestruck image seeing the sea of lights.

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

    The Wyatts hijacked the highlight reel. LOL

  • Bryan N.

    They kicked the crap out of him so hard the lights on his jacket fell off. Did anyone else catch that?

    • Seth

      NO! The lights on his jacket now! They already damaged the Jeritrons but not the lights on his jacket!

      • Bryan N.

        It’s unacceptable!!

  • Avalanchian

    Lost the war to Cena. Loser

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

    it’s been 1 year since bray debuted now. what a year for him.

  • Paul Jameson

    Welcome to the Wylight Reel

  • ldb

    what?

  • Bryan N.

    LOVE that quote. SO GOOD.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ouch… That’s pretty nasty!

    • Bryan N.

      They didn’t black and white it either. Looked like a pretty legit cut the way it bled, but I could be wrong.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Why does R-Truth always play the concerned buddy who doesn’t show up until after the beatdown?

  • Paul Jameson

    R Truth asking Chris what happened…..”A locker fell on me…what do you THINK happened Truth?!?”

  • K!NG

    r truth getting some tv time… unless he took a part time job as a medical trainer in wwe

  • Avalanchian

    To me Wyatt needs to do less speeches they are getting old and repetitive.

  • Dj Marvelouz

    did zack ryder just ask what happen?? he should have the app

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

    R-Truth sighting

  • Danny Philippi

    Bray Wyatt, Sam Houston, and Davey Crockett would’ve held ground at the Alamo.

  • Paul Jameson

    Emma just took his wallet

  • Mike McCarthy

    R-Truth is the new Magnum P.I.

  • K!NG

    flo rida better check is wallet emma might have lifted it from him

    • Paul Jameson

      i beat ya to that one lol….sorry

  • ldb

    prepare to be underwhelmed by the Miz

  • Dj Marvelouz

    flo rida betta watch his jewels arround emma lol

  • Tone

    is that the Rocks mom behind the announcers?

  • Smark Twain

    The Miz has way too much going on in his entrance theme now

    • Paul Jameson

      yeah its like part rock, part boring, and part…..huh?

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

      i think it makes him stand out more. at least it’s not generic right?

  • Scott

    And the crowd goes……….ohhhh…..um……yaaaaaay?

    • Seth

      The crowd goes… ‘…..oh huh? We supposed to care?’

      • Scott

        The crowd goes….yeah yeah I know him!!! Hes that dude from Road Rules Challenge!!!! Hahahaha

        • Seth

          …It’s kind’a sad I just watch the ‘The Challenge’ now because of how attractive Cara Maria is. Lulz.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wow… I didn’t think I could get any more disgusted with how Miz looked… But in all white and a wax/oiled chest just made me throw up in my mouth…

    • Paul Jameson

      i thought Don Johnson found the fountain of youth

      • ldb

        Don’t do that when I m drinking

  • Tom Mayer

    I am glad they turned miz heel and are doing something with him. He is very underrated and deserves a little better than the garbage he’s been fed the past few years. At least he stuck through it all.

  • ldb

    Sheamus at least has made the US title a lot stronger than it has been in along time?

    • CJ Blaze

      I agree.

  • rschell21

    I guess there gonna fill the ring and let’s Brock lay waste to everybody tonight

    • Mike McCarthy

      That would look horrible.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: A clip of Ziggler’s post-match Battleground interview, he says that Miz has added something to his game. (Bad feed issues) Skips to him saying he feels like he deserves to give something back to the WWE Universe, because they deserve it. He goes out there every night and puts his body on the line, and like every night he came so close and blew it.

  • ldb

    I was hoping for a Cesaro brock fued

    • Mike McCarthy

      Weren’t we all?

      • K!NG

        No i like Cesaro but he has not beaten anyone of name and just having him feud with lesnar because of heyman is just a re hash of last years lesnar/punk feud. Lesnar is just coming of ending the streak and is made to look un-beatable any feud between would have just seem to forced and would have forced Cesaro to take a loss to brock.

    • Seth

      I’m almost thinking at this point it’s going to be a hell’va struggle for him to rebuild his lost momentum now. Gone under a ridiculous amount of times of late…

  • Danny Philippi

    The Miz and Tyler Breeze better not become the next heel tag team.

    • Seth

      Oddly enough…I almost want to see a Breeze/Ziggler heel tag team just to let them be cocky jerks.

    • CJ Blaze

      I don’t think they would be able to last haha

    • David Jr.

      I think Tyler Breeze and Dolph Ziggler would make a better tag team.

      • Mike McCarthy

        YES!

      • Seth

        I love how I say the same idea and you all no sold me. CURSE YOU DAVID JR! YOU STEAL MY THUNDAH AGAIN!

        • David Jr.

          I do give you credit, you said it first.

          • Seth

            This is my golden star for the evening. :P

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I am probably the only one, but I want to see a Ryback/Lesnar match!

    • Paul Jameson

      i want to see that, but not at a major PPV….give me that on a blow off show

      • Jesse Sherwood

        On Raw, next week!

    • Bryan N.

      Battle of the botches?

    • ldb

      No Jesse I think Ryback improved a lot. He got pushed to fast and deserves another chance. FEED ME MORE. Ryback Vs Lesnar Too.

    • Mike McCarthy

      That’d be great if he played the role Big Show played against Lesnar.

    • Smark Twain

      I would have liked the face “feed me more” Ryback to face Lesnar

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Same here, and I think they could, and should, flip him.

    • Tom Mayer

      Feed me…the streak?

    • CJ Blaze

      If it means Lesnar destroys Ryback, then I’m all for it!

  • Tom Mayer

    Ugh anyone else tired of that follow me into the jungle song? It really must be at a bargain, it’s not good and it seems like everyone is using it now.

    • Smark Twain

      I am. Not sure whats the point of WWE having their own audio team of they’re still gonna do stuff like that

  • Paul Jameson

    Miz is now to be called Johnny Cage

    • Scott

      AHHHHHHHH YES!!!!!!!!!!

      • Paul Jameson

        I so need him to learn how to do the splits…..wait low blows cause DQs….dang it….

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

    Question. does the IC Curse follow Miz?

    • Mike McCarthy

      It hasn’t even been 24 hours…no way to tell.

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

        a loss to ziggler here would show it has.

    • Smark Twain

      His career fell to irrelevance before that belt so unless he gets injured, I’m not sure what could happen

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hate to say it, but I hope so. Miz has done nothing the past two years to deserve this push, sans be a bad but cheap to pay actor.

      • Paul Jameson

        but….he’s the Marine dangit! lol i love that’s his best defense

  • Dj Marvelouz

    anyone else feel that miz is copying the rock when the rock first came back in 03 after filming the scorpion king?? same type of intro too

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It sure feels like it. I didn’t like it then, and I don’t like it now.

      • Seth

        I was okay with it when The Rock did it because he had the over the top personality to pull it off. Just Miz isn’t that over the top personality to really make something like this work.

  • Bryan N.

    Audio cut for a second. Who was it, didn’t see their mouths.

    • CJ Blaze

      I didn’t catch who.

      • Bryan N.

        Probably Zigs. Wouldn’t surprise me.

  • Paul Jameson

    I tried doing just 2 of those back to back and got winded….doing 9 drops like that….fuhget abowdit….

  • savokes

    Botchy botchy botch

  • ldb

    match got a little botchy there

    • Paul Jameson

      its just trying to stay on par with the audio and video glitches here and there….that’s all

  • Danny Philippi

    What a maneuver!

  • Seth

    He can’t repeat half of my comments because they either have too much obscenity or it’s a really bad joke…oh wait…whoopsie.

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

    It bothers me anytime they do a move with Ziggler that involved high impact to the head area.

    • Xavier

      And that’s why Zigglee will more then likely never get a main event push again sadly

      • K!NG

        yeah if you cant take the bumps you arent going to last long.

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

          And Ziggler always go for the super bumps and oversells everything. That’s leads to more injuries then rewards.

      • Mike McCarthy

        John Cena took two months off last year, Daniel Bryan has been off since Extreme Rules. CM Punk took a month off DURING his WWE Championship reign. That’s an extremely biased opinion.

        • K!NG

          Cena’s recovery rate is insane

        • Xavier

          Those guys didn’t have concussion issues. Huge difference, nothing bias about it.

          • Mike McCarthy

            To say Ziggler isn’t getting pushed because he has a concussion is ridiculous, Christian’s history is worse and when he returns he gets put in the main event scene. Ziggler’s demotion is based on lack of creative direction.

          • Xavier

            Christian hasn’t been in the main event scene for God knows how long. Ziggler’s spot is because of his concussion history and the fact that he has said things in social media that rubbed higher ups the wrong way. That’s not a opinion of mine. Those are things that have been reported on various dirt sheets

          • Mike McCarthy

            Christian was in the main event this time last year, he challenged for the WHC at SummerSlam. Both of Zigglers concussions were caused by other workers, Swagger with a stiff kick, and Ryback not protecting his finisher. And a minute ago you were saying he isn’t getting pushed because of his concussion history, now social media is involved. You just don’t know how to admit when you’re wrong, too funny.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Mike, we have reported both facts that Xavier just pointed out. And after Christian’s first concussion last year, the greatly scaled back his push. And thanks to the second, his in ring career may be over or very limited.

          • Mike McCarthy

            I’m fully aware, at no point in my comment did I say Christian never had concussion problems. I said that after Christian (who you just said had concussion problem) received a World Championship match at SummerSlam last year, which is 100% fact.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            But that was prior to the concussion. He had returned from a shoulder injury.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And even here. WWE is gun-shy on Ziggler because they fear he will be injured again.

  • ldb

    I know its out of the blue but does Bo ‘s smile and talk remind anyone of jack black?

    • Bryan N.

      Talk maybe, facial expressions not so much.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We’re thrown into the match with The Miz stomping on Ziggler in the ring. The Miz runs off the rope and hits a big boot to the face. Two-count. Miz starts pulling Ziggler’s hair and let’s got at 3, puts on the headlock. Ziggler fights up and hits blows to the gut of Miz, Ziggler runs the ropes but runs into a knee to the gut from Miz. Miz poses, does his signature clothesline in the corner. Miz up to the top rope, poses again. Hits a double-axe handle. Back to USA.

  • Danny Philippi

    Miami is popping tonight. Better crowd than at Richmond last week or last night at Tampa.

    • Paul Jameson

      tampa was mostly retired after the tag title match….lol

    • Seth

      The crowd died a miserable death I think when they did the bait and switch on Ambrose and Rollins. Just felt like after they knew they weren’t getting the match the air in the building was just let out.

  • ldb

    Ziggler s got to be the most over jobber in a while

  • Laurenz

    Where did the title come from?

  • Bryan N.

    Title on the apron. Who else smells a dirty finish?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’s been happening a lot lately. Title in the corner.

      • Paul Jameson

        true but it didn’t start there….

    • Seth

      The finish smells like whatever Rikishi eats before he stink faces someone. :(

      • Bryan N.

        And I’m drinking iced tea… Thanks Seth…

        • Seth

          You said smelled sir. My apologies.

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

    the ic title is laying int he ring. bet it plays a part before gthe match is over.

  • Laurenz

    Botch botch.lol

  • K!NG

    botches aside this is a good match we are watching

  • Dj Marvelouz

    anyone hear them talking

  • savokes

    soooo many audible spot calling convos

  • Danny Philippi

    This match is sponsored by Maffew’s YouTube account.

  • savokes

    is anyone else seeing neon lines on the backs of these guys when the camera pans in on their bodies?

    • Paul Jameson

      I’m seeing blurred lines……

  • Paul Jameson

    Miz puts on the figure four in the oddest way I’ve seen in a while

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

      i think part of it is because he’s a lefty.

      • Paul Jameson

        nah I’m used to a little showmanship and acting it up….he just lifts the leg and goes right into it….

  • Dustyn

    Random OCD moment lol! It looks like that segment with Jericho and the Wyatt Family was filmed last night. A couple things make mw think this. One on a schedule of Jericho’s dates released earlier this month, today (July 21) is not listed. Two, the locker room that they did the segment in was blue/black and white, the colours of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    • Dj Marvelouz

      i was thinking the same thing… plus why would the waste jerichos time by not having him go to the ring at all

      • Dustyn

        If he were there. It would have made sense to have him at-least try and make his way to the ring, or have him attacked in the ring.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I don’t know who published the schedule you are talking on, but I have heard nothing of the sort. But I will concur on the locker room. It doesn’t look like something that would be in Miami.

  • Bryan N.

    Naitch is rolling his eyes at the awful figure four, not smiling you clowns.

    • Bryan N.

      Or is too blitzed to care. Whichever

  • Seth

    The ‘This is awesome’ chant has become a parody of what it once was I think.

  • David Jr.

    So shouldn’t both of been in pain from that figure four because Ziggler was turned around.

  • savokes

    ziggy!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WOW! Ziggler gets a HUGE win!

  • Danny Philippi

    And the curse of the IC title continues.

    • Xavier

      How you figure that? That was a great match

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

        Champion lost a non-title match. Especially after just winning the title.

      • Danny Philippi

        He beat Sheamus last week when he wasn’t IC champion. And now he loses tonight.

        • CJ Blaze

          Tonight’s loss makes sense. All part of the bigger picture.

          • Seth

            They have champions lose non title matches TOO often for it to truly mean what it should. I think it’d be better if they stop having champions go under so often. Doesn’t matter what title.

          • CJ Blaze

            I do agree with that.

  • Xavier

    Matches like that could help bring prestige back to the IC title. Wish it was for the title though

  • Scott

    Was that a This is Awesome or Miz is Aweful chant?

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

    confirmed. IC title Curse follows Miz.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Yupp, a loss on free TV. CURSE!

  • Avalanchian

    Zigglypuff!!

  • ldb

    Ziggler is over selling or hurt that knee. I think RVD really hurt his knee last week. and Rollins sure fooled me with his sell of his knee.

  • K!NG

    Anyone who hates on the miz is blind the guy can work and had to deal with alot of BS becoming a wrestler

    • Xavier

      Agreed. True underdog story

    • Paul Jameson

      totally don’t hate the person…love the struggle he fought through….can’t stand current character…hoping he ditches the Johnny Cage thing soon.

      • Scott

        Shadow kick!!!

  • Paul Jameson

    And Johnny Cage has left the building….

  • Paul Jameson

    and Heyman has been FIRED for the Authority lol

  • savokes

    Cesaro v Rollins?

    • CJ Blaze

      I was sooo hoping. Ambrose now.

      • savokes

        right! still could be a good one though. So glad he’s away from Heyman!

        • ldb

          Yeah. Heyman is an amazing mouth piece but just ain’t done nothing for his clients other than brock

  • Paul Jameson

    Cesaro v Ambrose…I likes

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cesaro vs. Ambrose? FUUUUUUUUUU!!!!

    • Bryan N.

      Even though those two will put on a excellent matchup regardless.

  • K!NG

    Cesaro dont become a HHH guy the whole IWC will hate you lol

    • Seth

      If he does, at least the poor man can be featured in a decent slot regularly without any instability about his position!

      • K!NG

        lol look what happened with sheamus everyone loved the guy. the moment a report came out he was a HHH guy everybody turned on him.

        • Seth

          You know what…he’s making money. Better money than I’ll probably ever make. Good! Good that he at least found a way to take care of himself and family while also being good at his job. :P

          • K!NG

            hey sheamus IMO is the best worker in WWE

  • Laurenz

    Did cesaro call Rollins a pawn or is my hearing just bad?

  • Dj Marvelouz

    is heyman gonna be with brock lesnar

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Clip of AJ Lee’s post-match interview from Battleground, there’s been literally three original segments so far tonight. Bad night.

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

    Plan C Confirmed to be Bork Laser

    • Bryan N.

      Sounds like a Buzz Lightyear villain lol

  • savokes

    Now, with Cesaro away from Heyman, I don’t see how he can stay a heel…too much pop for him, and teasing The Swing, then not doing it won’t turn the crowd against him alone

  • Mike McCarthy

    The idea that a champion loses a non-title match on free TV means he’s cursed is ridiculous, He’s held the title for a day people!!! Sheamus lost a non-title match just last week!!! Nobody’s calling the US Title cursed. Hilarious.

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

      It’s the history overall. IC champions have lost a lot of non-title matches the last couple years hurting both the championship and the champion.

      • Mike McCarthy

        So has the United States Champion. And so did the World Heavyweight Champion when it was still in tact, you can argue that some past champions have had bad luck which is true. But to say The Miz’s reign is cursed when it’s only lasted 1 day so far is completely absurd.

        • ldb

          How long did Miz’s last IC reign last?

          • Mike McCarthy

            He was written off TV to film a movie, movies are much bigger than mid card titles.

          • ldb

            Yeah better on the return. At least you usually get a push.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            1 day.

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

          We are saying the title is cursed. not the reign.

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

            Yeah and he’s already losing matches as champion. Exactly what has happened far too often with that once proud championship.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Match** It happens with every single championship!!! You’re problem is with creative, the titles are props. It’s up to the wrestlers to build their own momentum to make creative book them effectively.

    • Seth

      The other thing is…when you’re a champion…much more often than not…you’re losing more matches than you win. It just isn’t a good way to portray the championship. In most cases anyhow. It’s an organizational thing I wish they would stop doing as a whole…champions shouldn’t lose as often as they do.

      • Mike McCarthy

        That’s very much true, but to blame it on a curse (which you didn’t) is idiotic. It comes down to bad creative booking, which is something that has been a part of WWE for years now.

        • Seth

          I really should write a column about how they do that so often and get it out of my system so it’d be productive since I whine about that a ton now shouldn’t I? Hah

  • Dj Marvelouz

    anyone else looking forward to paul heymans new dvd?? i sure am

    • Scott

      Looking very forward to it! One of the greatest minds in professional wrestling

      • Dj Marvelouz

        u should hear jerichos podcast when he has edge and paul heyman as his guest. very good stuff!

      • Paul Jameson

        as long as its not 2 hours of him being the 1 in 21 and 1 lol…..

        • Scott

          HAHAHA MY CLIENT BAAAAAAROOOOOCCCK LEEESSSNAAAAR

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I have it on preorder from Amazon!

      • Dj Marvelouz

        niiiiiceee

  • Danny Philippi

    Now there’s a twist to the Rollins/Ambrose angle? Cesaro doing the dirty work for Rollins. However, it is nice to see Cesaro put into this angle instead of, let’s say, being a jobber to Heath Slater. Or does Slater help Ambrose by fending off Cesaro? Too many options, here or I am over analyzing the situation.

  • Xavier

    AJ/Paige from last night wasn’t very good at all.

    • Moose

      Thank you! I was thinking I was just being WAAAAY too critical of it. It seems like they were completely out of sync with each other.

      • Xavier

        Out of sync is a understatement lol

  • Danny Philippi

    Hope Paige turns on AJ tonight during the tag. This feud must end at Summerslam to further Paige’s development and not to be Aj’s lackey.

    • Xavier

      I’m still not buying into all of the AJ is a great wrestler hype

  • Scott

    Cant wait for Lesnar. Hope we get a good ole fashioned Nancy scream!

  • Danny Philippi

    Mute the television now!

    • David Jr.

      I would but Emma stole the remote.

      • Seth

        That’s okay. AJ stole my heart and shattered it when she married voldermort. :(

      • Bryan N.

        So many upvotes for this. Hahaha

  • Bryan N.

    Cue the Punk chants!

  • CJ Blaze

    I wish we could see more AJ/Natalya and Paige/Emma

  • K!NG

    poor nattie

  • Scott

    Crazy vs the clepto

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Voldemort rears his ugly chant…

  • Paul Jameson

    Emma…steal Paige as a bestie

  • Dj Marvelouz

    Natty’s tan tho!! ufff very hot

  • Danny Philippi

    Long time since Natalia competed on Raw.

  • Paul Jameson

    is it sad that I feel Nattie can get in the ring, do 3 moves and totally make all other divas look inferior?

    • K!NG

      nope i feel AJ is over rated as a in ring worker

  • Dj Marvelouz

    thats gonna leave a mark

  • Guest

    Ouch!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That was a rough Shining Wizard… But otherwise a nice Divas match!

  • Paul Jameson

    this story was done better with Trish and Mickie….including the turn just now…..

    • Xavier

      Mickie was such a great character actor. I’ll never forget the RAW where she knocked Trish out then kissed her while her noise was bleeding

  • Jesse Sherwood

    HEEL TURN!

  • Moose

    YES!!!

  • Xavier

    And there’s the heel turn

  • Bryan N.

    And here comes your Paige heel turn!

  • Bryan

    Anybody else hear Nattie calling the spots in that match? Also, the CM Punk chants during AJ’s matches are so disrespectful. Aaaaand there’s Paige’s heel turn.

  • K!NG

    Awesome

  • Dj Marvelouz

    oh my gosh!! a hair but to aj’s hair

  • Stevie Klaus

    It’s about time for the heel turn

  • Andrew

    i knew it!

    • Bryan

      It was coming sooner or later…I guess this sets up the rematch at Summerslam.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Paige is getting the reaction VKM has been wanting!

  • Paul Jameson

    i don’t think King minds AJ being tossed at him….

  • Bryan N.

    I think now is the time for the HOLY S*** chant to be okay

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I love the kid telling Paige “Indoor voices, okay!”

    • Paul Jameson

      I was sooo just typing that…. lol

    • David Jr.

      And now I have a Barney song stuck in my head.

  • Seth

    I just LOL’d at the little kid who shouted ‘Indoor voices’ at Paige when she went off.

  • Xavier

    At least they are properly building this up

    • Bryan N.

      A proper Divas feud build-up? Say it ain’t so!

    • K!NG

      hey i have stated if wwe does it right it could be the best thing to happen for the divas since trish and lita

  • Mike McCarthy

    This is how you get a heel over.

  • Paul Jameson

    My liking of Paige just went up 10 points…..

  • Bryan

    This is honestly the most intriguing angle the WWE has going on right now.

  • Danny Philippi

    Finally, a diva storyline that is progressing into something better.

  • Dustyn

    Any thoughts on who Triple H will name as the challenger? lol

    • Alex

      Its Brock Lesnar unless they have some crazy swerve planned.

      • Dustyn

        I know! I wonder if Paul will interrupt HHH, or if HHH will announce him as the challenger.

        • Paul Jameson

          oh there would have to be interruption….

      • K!NG

        its going to be Braden Walker lol Jesse get ready

    • Bryan

      Seriously?

      • Dustyn

        No, of course not!

  • Paul Jameson

    I wish Florida would hurry up and do that thing he does so I can go get some food….

  • Seth

    Being serious for a moment…we all knew the heel turn was coming. Built it up a little…and we knew it was coming…just didn’t know exactly when. The fact that we were all on board with it for the most part(Paige turning heel anyhow) and saw it coming and they delivered it made it better. Good pro wrestling heel turn.

  • Scott

    Ive noticed the Wreslemania logo for 31 has a play symbol instead of the reference to the number. Anybody else notice that?

  • Laurenz

    Hhh names somebody and then brock shows up and destroys Hhh’s pick.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom welcomes us and recaps the last segment. He welcomes Zack Ryder. He says he’ll be the #1 Contender. He’ll be Plan Z! You’re not gonna believe this but tonight on Raw he has a match!! And an entrance!!! He knows something about entrances. You’re gonna want to watch because he has something up his sleeve bro!

  • Paul Jameson

    Then the Rock’s music hits…….to promote his movie…not be the contender lol

    • David Jr.

      I want Rock to be put in the main event at Summer Slam, then change John Cena’s name to the Scissors and Brock Lesnar’s name to the Paper, so we can have a triple threat match of the Rock vs. the Scissors vs. the Paper.

  • The Breaker

    Paige’s attack on AJ looked pretty good. For the first time it really felt like Paige was over with the fans.

  • Dustyn

    Has Lana wrestled, or has she just done manager/on screen authority (FCW) roles?

    • Mike McCarthy

      I’ve never seen her wrestle personally but I do think she did wrestle in developmental.

    • BlazeKing

      She hasn’t had a match but she does train at the performance center.

  • Moose

    Have I missed any Sting references / commercials or have they just not been on the show yet? Sorry, I have a child running around crazy right now.

  • CJ Blaze

    WWWYKI!

  • Bryan

    Wow…Zack Ryder has a televised entrance!!!

  • The Breaker

    Fandango vs. Ryder? Is this supposed to be on TV?

  • Paul Jameson

    so SR and Layla are getting passed around the lockroom as valets? interesting…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ryder vs. Fandango? And Ryder has the ladies! Could we see Ryder’s first win in years?

    • Alex

      I hope so! Not holding my breath though…..

    • Seth

      If that happens…the place I’m living at will freeze over Jesse…

      • Paul Jameson

        as will my future home….

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Wait, my home will thaw!

    • ldb

      RYDER WINS RYDER WINS and its not a typo

  • Scott

    So Layla and Summer Rae are sluts?

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

    is zack going to get a win?

  • ldb

    Wish I was Zach right now

  • CJ Blaze

    Yes, I’m a Ryder fan. Deal with it!

  • Bryan N.

    Even RYDER got the girls. Geez Johnny Curtis, how far have you fallen now?

    • Seth

      If he loses this match…he’s the lowest man in the company in terms of totem pole. Even lower than Sandow or Xavier Woods.

  • Moose

    Zach needs new music.

    • The Breaker

      I like the version of his song performed by Downstait. If he somehow got another push they should use it!

  • savokes

    If Ryder wins, we burn things and flip over cars in jubilation…whos with me?!?!

  • Danny Philippi

    Zach Ryder. On Raw? 5,000 points!
    Summer Rae and Layla escorting him to the ring: 1,000 points
    6,000 points in the Whose Match is it Anyway fantasy game.

  • Avalanchian

    Ryder is going to win!

  • Scott

    If Ryder wins, im gonna start building a panic room!

  • Bryan

    Is anybody getting tired of JBL’s heel commentary? It makes me miss Michael Cole as a heel.

    • CJ Blaze

      I’ve been annoyed with him for awhile now.

    • Seth

      I’d rather not see that again sir. Heh

      • Scott

        Awwww you werent a Cole Miner? Lol

  • CJ Blaze

    YEAH BABY

  • Seth

    The new lowest man on the totem pole…Fandango.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    HOLY FECAL MATTER!!!

    • Seth

      I’m turning into Mr. Freeze now!

    • Bryan N.

      HOLY SHITAQUA

  • BlazeKing

    Ryder won on Raw!!!! In the words of Dolph Ziggler…. Holy Shiz!!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    Pigs have flown!
    The Cubs have won the World Series!
    Zach Ryder is on a winning streak!

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

    Hell has no fury like a woman scorned. Evan Ryder benefits.

  • Dustyn

    Half Life 3 confirmed!

  • Xavier

    Lol at Ryder winning. It’s the shot heard around the world. On a sidenote. Layla & Summer Rae = PMS 2.0

    • Paul Jameson

      First she had LayCool….what does she have now….LayRay?

      • Xavier

        Lol I guess

  • Scott

    ARMAGGEDON IS COMING!!!!! Only things that will be left are cockroaches, Cher, and Ric Flair

  • Mike McCarthy

    Are they seriously going to show another replay of this?

  • rschell21

    Ryder finally won a match on raw!!!!

  • David Jr.

    Layla and Michelle McCool was LayCool, so would Layla and Summer be Laymer?

    • Paul Jameson

      LayRay…..i like it…

      • BlazeKing

        LaRae maybe?

        • Paul Jameson

          yeah, i just like the y instead….but i knew its spelled Rae…

    • Avalanchian

      I prefer SumLay

      • Paul Jameson

        nah that’s what they are doing now with the lockerroom as valets lol

      • Avalanchian

        Or LaySum

        • Seth

          LaySum sounds very lewd.

  • The Breaker

    Did they censor it that time?

  • Paul Jameson

    no worries kids….she said she is a vindictive, bee…….she called her an insected with a stinger….

    • David Jr.

      YJ stinger?

  • Mike McCarthy

    Am I the only one that thinks swearing for a cheap pop on a PG show is kinda cheating? The Rock is the only one that should get away with it.

    • Scott

      And Austin

  • Bryan

    Ryder = #1 contender to the WHC

  • Xavier

    Flo looks like a wrestler, he’s pretty big

  • savokes

    It’s ok guys…when they show it AGAIN in the 10:00 hour…we’ll actually hear Brie say B****, which is what made that segment bearable

  • The Breaker

    When is the last time that Ziggler and Ryder won a match on the same show?

    • Mike McCarthy

      You should ask Fred Flintstone.

      • The Breaker

        Or Larry King. lol

      • Xavier

        I literally just laughed out loud at that

  • Mike McCarthy

    FLO RIDA/HEATH SLATER STILL GOING TWO YEARS STRONG!!

  • rschell21

    I love Flo Ridas jimi Hendrix tattoo

  • Moose

    And Heath got dealt with by Florida…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Slater’s gonna slate…

  • Danny Philippi

    Flo rida looked like Booby Lashley there.

  • BlazeKing

    Holy continuity Batman… Heath never forgot what Flo Rida did and he gets punked the same way all over again.

    Really, Flo Rida ain’t that tough. Plus he stole Pitbull’s style…

  • Laurenz

    Flo rida vs cena rap battle who wins?

    • Scott

      Neither

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We all lose!

    • Seth

      The concession stands and beer makers because everyone will get drunk at the concessions to forget it.

  • The Breaker

    So Slater eliminates Cesaro from the Battle Royal, and the next night he gets knocked out by Flo Rida? What the heck?

    • Andrew

      i dont get it either

  • Seth

    Well, Heath Slater, Zack Ryder, AND Dolph Ziggler all can’t get over at someone’s expense in some fashion on the same show. Sorry world. Lol

    • Bryan N.

      The Earth’s core would collapse from the trifecta

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

    whatever happened to Zack’s Last rezort?

    • The Breaker

      He quit doing them.

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

        probably got in some serious trouble for smashing that US title Replica.

        • The Breaker

          I dunno, I haven’t heard anything. It’s possible though I guess. I think he just got bored of it because not nearly as many people watched it as they did Z True Long Island Story.

  • Paul Jameson

    Florida v Heath Slater….the new Kane versus pete rose

  • K!NG

    Batista so fits that role in the movie

    • David Jr.

      He has no friends?

  • rschell21

    So all they did was paint bootista green and his tattoos red so cool!!!!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    Bathroom break for me. Be back typing in a few.

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

    Rusev vs Sheamus. interesting.

  • savokes

    The 8 year old in me just won’t let me stop being excited for this new TMNT movie…regardless of how they look and or how good it will be!!

  • Paul Jameson

    lets get the second least street cred person to introduce Florida….

  • ldb

    well so much for the us belt looks like sheamus jobs on main event

  • Laurenz

    So is sheamus going to lose to russev or is swagger going to play apart in that match

    • Paul Jameson

      definitely Swaggs interference

  • BlackLotus

    ive got flo rida on mute

  • Bryan N.

    BRB, gonna refill my snacks and drink

  • Moose

    So he’s doing that one song everyone knows huh?

  • Xavier

    They should have Slater attack Foo from behind while he’s performing

    • Seth

      Have him just give a neckbreaker to Flo and every one of the singers just to sing for himself. He’d be over for life!

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

    Surely this guy has another hit doesn’t he?

  • David Jr.

    So I guess he hasn’t come out with a new song in 2 years.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Pretty much.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So we get the same song from Mania? Hasn’t he had ANY other hits since then? And the chick he’s singing with is making my ears bleed worse than Y2J’s…

    • Bryan N.

      Wocka Wocka!

  • Seth

    I can’t take this anymore. *Grabs evoker* PER-SON-A!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Moose

    She shops where RVD does.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom is celebrating Ryder & Ziggler’s wins. He talks again about Triple H’s decision. He welcomes RybAxel. They just stare at each other. He points the microphone at each of them, neither of them speak. He asks if they should be chosen. He says he had more championship matches in 2012 than any other superstar, Axel asks him how that went. Everybody knows that Brad Maddox costed him the first time, and The shield every other time. Axel says former Intercontinental Champions are first in line, and it’s his turn. Ryback says in 2013 he sold more Feed Me More T-Shirts than any other superstars. He asks Axel how many Better Than Perfect shirts he sold. Axel asks how many Unlimited Energy shirts he sold, Ryback says “You mean this T-Shirt that’s now available on WWEShop.com!?!” (Cheap DX-style plug, and not a bad one either) They’ll face Big E and Kofi tonight. Ryback says he’s bigger than Big E, Axel says he’s more athletic than Kofi. They realize they just agreed on something! They stare each other down and hug.

    • BlazeKing

      Ryback peddling merch was the highlight of that segment!

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

      Kinda like to see a Ryback face turn tonight.

    • K!NG

      Hopefully ryback is turning face

  • The Breaker

    Brock should come out and end this.

  • Paul Jameson

    they shoulda chose either lip sych or live…but not both…

  • Bryan

    Did he just say “where the hoes at”???

    • Paul Jameson

      judging by the last match….they are with Ryder…..the other FloRyder

  • Mike McCarthy

    This is the same exact set he did at WM28

  • savokes

    hahahahaha, there’s like 5 ppl jumping up and down, everyone else is sitting with glazed looks in their eyes

  • The Breaker

    I don’t think any fans of Flo Rida would watch a 3 hour RAW just to watch him perform for 5 minutes.

  • Laurenz

    Slater singing(or whatever he does)is better than this.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I don’t think either of them know the words to this one…

  • Seth

    Flo Rida’s song choices in the WWE concerts are more predictable than an ADR match!

  • The Breaker

    I don’t think he did this one at WM.

  • BlazeKing

    *yawn*

    And I like (good) hip-hop music…

    • Mike McCarthy

      This is considered more Hip-Hop/Electro crossover.

      • BlazeKing

        Something that Pitbull did way better when he performed for Raw.

  • Dustyn

    And the pyro get’s the biggest pop of this segment!

    • Seth

      The pyro is almost as over as the hell in a cell when they give the hell in a cell its own music. :P

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

    the chick that’s with him kinda reminds me of Jo Jo. that’s probably why this sucked.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Was Stephanie standing in the ring that entire time….?

  • The Breaker

    If they want Flo Rida to get cheered, why did Steph introduce him?

  • savokes

    haha, was Steph in the ring the whole time? lol

    • The Breaker

      That would be funny if she was dancing to Flo Rida’s music like she did to Cena’s that one time.

  • Mike McCarthy

    SHE’S BEING ARRESTED!

  • ldb

    Some body call the west texas rednecks we need rap is crap

    • Scott

      Haha!!

  • Xavier

    This is interesting

  • K!NG

    Pretty sweet for the crowd to see flo rida and wrestling

  • Bryan

    Is this staged???

  • The Breaker

    What the heck is this?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Steph is getting arrested! YES! YES! YES! I knew there was a reason she was in the ring!

  • Xavier

    Steph did assault a fan techinically. WWE stepping up and paying attention to detail, me likes

    • The Breaker

      OH! Thanks for explaining that lol

  • Laurenz

    So is this going to set up a match at summerslam. That way steph doesn’t get sued?

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

    I think Steph just got arrested.

  • Paul Jameson

    LAWSUIT!!!!!

  • Scott

    Oh snap!!!!!

  • Paul Jameson

    YES CHANTS CUE!

  • BlazeKing

    It’s the PO-LICE!!!!

  • Luke

    The crowd is going nuts!!!

  • Seth

    This place is going bananas for the law actually being enforced! It’s a miracle!

  • Paul Jameson

    HAHAHA he has the Miranda card…as if she can hear him anyway lol

  • savokes

    shes getting Mirandized!

  • Dustyn

    Good way to set the match up for SS.

  • Moose

    Billionaire jailbird lol!

  • Paul Jameson

    All I can think is…where the crap is HHH lol…he’s just letting this happen lol

    • Seth

      Would you want to get involved if your wife is going crazy? Hell no I wouldn’t! Hell has no fury like the scorn of a woman.

    • BlazeKing

      You can just imagine him in the back saying “Heh, *I’m* not going there to get put in the clink!!!”

  • Jesse Sherwood

    She is getting her rights read to her! Battery charges! THIS IS AWESOME!

  • savokes

    CUFFS!!!!!

  • Paul Jameson

    I take it back….Steph is about to get passed around more than LayRae….lol sorry…

  • Xavier

    WWE taking the time to build up two diva feuds, well played WWE. Good RAW so far. Fans are marking out big for her arrest

  • Smark Twain

    Jail Steph, not prison

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

    Arrested for battery. LOVE IT

  • ldb

    best segment on raw in a while

  • Bryan N.

    BAHAHA I LOVE IT! I LOVE EVRYTHING ABOUT IT

  • Jesse Sherwood

    She’s getting cuffed! Oh my Freya!!!!

  • David Jr.

    When did Vin Diesel become Stephanie McMahon’s bodyguard?

  • Seth

    You know what…this might be the loudest pop in wrestling history for someone getting arrested.

  • K!NG

    She’ll get off the flordia justice system is horrible

  • Luke

    “This is awesome!” chants!!!

  • savokes

    this is FANTASTIC! Finally an Authority member getting theirs

  • The Breaker

    Realistic consequences on a wrestling show? Insane!

  • Bryan

    Wow…at the beginning of that segment I thought it was legit. GREAT segment!

  • Paul Jameson

    Oh man I hope some people report this as fact tomorrow…..quick someone check the news outlets lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    Orange Is the New Black just got a new cast member…

    • Dustyn

      That would be awesome!

  • ldb

    dixie dreams of being that great

  • Paul Jameson

    YES I get my HHH freak out!

  • Laurenz

    There you go hunter save your wife.

  • Luke

    Triple H should get obstruction of justice for touching the cop!

    • The Breaker

      I thought about that too!

  • Xavier

    Well done WWE, great segment and great acting by Steph here.

    • David Jr.

      Dixie will try this on Impact soon and it will fail.

      • Seth

        Dixie will forget what the cop is for and in a swerve…the cop will arrest the person who had the crime committed against them just for the sake of a swerve.

        • Paul Jameson

          and then the cop will win the title

          • Seth

            In a baton on a pole match.

        • David Jr.

          So Vince Russo will write it?

          • Scott

            YUP!

  • Laurenz

    I wonder what the mugshot is going to look like.

  • Avalanchian

    Where is Vince to come to his daughters help

    • BlazeKing

      He never forgot what Steph & Shane did to him back in the day, lol.

  • Paul Jameson

    this is getting recorded…I’m soooo rewatchin this again later

  • Danny Philippi

    Who says Raw is boring?

  • Paul Jameson

    classic DX Trip there insulting their car!!!! lol

  • savokes

    Question for you all: The “YES” chants….does it mean DB is still relevant through Brie right now, or more so that it was something that the crowd loved and since it was Steph, they chanted “YES”?

  • Mike McCarthy

    What does a real man do when his wife is being arrested? Heckle the officers!!

  • Luke

    Jerry is the WWE attorney for those keeping score at home

    • Paul Jameson

      lol someone were like…What’s the King gonna do…he was just out there and did nothing lol

  • Dustyn
  • Bryan

    JIMMY!

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

    This was an awesome segment. Commend the people that came up with this.

  • Xavier

    Holy crap WWE knocked that segment out of the park

  • Dustyn
  • Stephen Cash

    Anyone else think Stephs boobs looked deformed?

    • Moose

      I was having Chyna flashbacks.

    • Seth

      They need a different set of cuffs for her breasts for scarring viewers for life with how they looked.

  • Moose

    Storyline: Charges dropped to get a match at SS.

  • Avalanchian

    I knew this would happen but not like that. Awesome!

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

    All I could think of at the end of that was Giggity when HHH said he’d be right behind steph.

  • Xavier

    This RAW > Battleground

    • Alex

      I don’t know if I’m alone on this but I think post PPV Raws are the best shows they put on.

    • The Breaker

      That’s usually the trend after a so-so PPV. It’s kind of the opposite of what WWE should be doing, because of all their Network troubles.

    • K!NG

      i agree but nothing on raw can hold a candle to the the Usos vs the wyatt family match last night

    • Mark Skinner

      This is a better RAW than last night snoozer of BattleGround

  • Alex

    Creative has been on a role tonight especially with the diva’s feuds & Ziggler & Ryder winning. Maybe they didn’t have to re-write a million times? haha XD

  • Stephen Cash

    Sounds like I missed a lot of drama in the thread last week… Come on guys be adults.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Not here, but on WNW as a whole. We have had a sharp increase in trolls of late.

      • Stephen Cash

        I hate trolls… Thanks for the hard work! These threads rules because of what you guys do.

  • ldb

    that one part of raw was better than most of the PPV last night

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom recaps, Titus interrupts, he says this isn’t Raw, this is Cops!! He loved seeing his former partner Heath Slater get slammed by Flo Rida! Out of all the titles Triple H has won, he would love to get the next opportunity he dishes out. There isn’t a doubt in his mind that he has earned the right to face John Cena, and there is no doubt that he can beat John Cena and become the face of the WWE. Who is the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion, T-I-T-U-S. Titus says next time they do this drill he’s gonna need Tom to spell faster. Titus walks off.

  • Stephen Cash

    Jesse what does flaming mean? You used it in your comment.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Intentionally provoking a person for a negative reaction.

  • savokes

    The image of Steph being put in handcuffs at ringside will forever be immortalized in our minds

  • BlazeKing

    Joey Mercury on TV!!!

  • Luke

    JOEY MERCURY!!!

  • Paul Jameson

    “Is this a hybrid…you guys should be proud of yourselves” lol…..great cop insult.

  • Rayner Chee-bai

    …and another champion lost clean in a non-title match right after winning the title. And yet still wondering why people won’t rally behind secondary title championship matches.

  • monty

    why was HHH smiling when steph was being put in the car lol,

    • Mike McCarthy

      Because they were driving a hybrid!!

      • monty

        no even before than he could barely hold himself back

  • Luke

    Dude…”she’s gotta get processed, right?”

  • Moose

    LMAO!

  • Laurenz

    What’s best for business.Hunter is staying to make his decision.

  • Avalanchian

    Lol @ HHH decision

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

    Some husband he is. Cracks in the authority.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Joey Mercury sighting!

    • monty

      lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    My wife just got arrested, but we’re still gonna milk this thing to the final segment..

  • savokes

    hahahaha, nicely done HHH

  • BlazeKing

    That’s grade A HHH scheming for ya, lol!

  • Stephen Cash

    Twist: Joey Mercury names himself the challenger to John Cena!!! Lol

  • Paul Jameson

    Hey its not like she was going to the hospital…..she’s going to jail…there’s long processing times involved I’m sure lol…he easily has 40 mins or so to wait lol….

  • CJ Blaze

    I like Big E’s blue. As for Ryback…

    • Avalanchian

      Ryback gains 200 lbs and he could be Earthquake

      • CJ Blaze

        Haha. I actually like that shade of blue, but it doesn’t go well on Ryback IMO.

  • K!NG

    the team of Kof-E

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

    Is RVD really get hurt or did his latest contract run out?

  • The Breaker

    So Big E is in a tag team with Kofi now… not a good sign for E.

  • Paul Jameson

    you know….when Ryback’s gear only has an R on it…it makes me think he’s wearing RVD’s design mess ups…..

    • Mike McCarthy

      I don’t think they’re the same size >_<

      • Paul Jameson

        its stretchy material….one size fits all right?! lol

  • savokes

    I wonder if they asked real Detectives to help them out with that segment, that’d be pretty cool

    • Paul Jameson

      that was a real miranda rights card….so it wouldn’t shock me if they did.

  • Brocklee

    How long until we see Dixie getting arrested for something?

    • Mike McCarthy

      The next time they tape TV.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        So August 5-7th.

        • Mike McCarthy

          Bingo.

    • Scott

      One week til we hear about it being filmed. However long they go in advance until we see it

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, they have until the 14th in the can currently. So between the 21st to September 11th.

        • Moose

          I don’t think you realize how accurate “in the can” really is for them.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Oh, I do. I’ve been watching since the first weekly PPV.

  • savokes

    Gotta admit…Ryback is somewhat over with that chant

    • The Breaker

      As Ryback once said, “Still got it” lol

  • ldb

    Feed me more chants

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

    I really hope we see the return of the Feed Me More Ryback. He was entertaining even if he was being push to quickly.

  • savokes

    NOD 2.0

    • Luke

      YES!

  • ldb

    nation 2.0

  • Mike McCarthy

    Xavier Woods just popped up out of nowhere….scared me.

  • CJ Blaze

    NOD heel?

  • Scott

    NEW NATION!!!!!

  • Moose

    Wait for it…

  • Paul Jameson

    the part of Brother Love will now be played by Xavier Woods…

  • Mike McCarthy

    I guess he got that suit from John Lauranaitis.

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

    Woods = Malcom X?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Xavier Woods is reforming the Nation! And he is looking a bit like Malcolm X here!

    • Paul Jameson

      if Malcolm X dressed like Brother Love….

  • The Breaker

    This is random…

  • BlazeKing

    New NOD alert!!!!

  • Dustyn
  • Mike McCarthy

    Oh come on, all you had to do was make them raise their fists in unison!

    • James

      “We Are The Nation of Domination…”

  • savokes

    WWE’s response to the recent article about racism in WWE?

    • Luke

      Big E and Kofi seem to have been teaming a little longer than when that article came out…

      • savokes

        yes, but Woods (literally) out of nowhere with the way he was talking…makes one wonder

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Quite possibly, but it has been brewing for a few months now. I think The Atlantic just sped up WWE’s plans.

  • Seth

    You know what…that was a decent little promo by Mr. Woods there.

    • David Jr.

      Isn’t he Dr. Woods or not yet?

      • Seth

        He hasn’t shown me a PHD so he will have to deal with the Mr. title rather than the Dr. one.

  • Scott

    Kind of stoked to see the NOD 2.0!!!

  • The Breaker

    Can anyone buy into Kofi turning heel?

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

      I can. I saw a heel promo he did on the indies that was fairly good.

    • David Jr.

      I can, I think it’s long over due.

      • The Breaker

        I agree that it’s worth a shot. Kofi will definitely have to lose the brightly colored tights though. lol

        • David Jr.

          I saw someone once say Kofi’s facial expression reminds him a little of Savage, and I kind of see it and Savage made a great heel.

          • The Breaker

            I never considered the comparison, but it’s something to think about.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I can. Just like Swagger has been heel his whole run until Rusev, Kofi has been face the whole time. He’s more than due for an alignment shift.

      • The Breaker

        Good point. Never thought I’d hear “Let’s go Swagger” chants, but they came, and they were loud!

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Another clip from Battleground, this time it was a first-person view of one of the rosebuds at Battleground. One of them was wearing a camera.

    • Paul Jameson

      oh how i wish it was the bunny

  • Scott

    New Nation gimmick has HHH all over it!

  • savokes

    Does Henry play any part in this *supposed* new NOD?

    • Paul Jameson

      i would think he needs to be the glue to attach the name

    • Scott

      Id like to see Titus join!

    • Luke

      Might as well have him as the “mentor” like Farooq until somebody steps up above the fray. I can’t see Ziggler playing the Owen Hart role

      • Paul Jameson

        heath slater as the owen hart role?

        • Luke

          Wouldn’t be a bad idea but he’d need to cut down on his Southern accent. I just soon have them start taking out random guys like The Shield

  • Mike McCarthy

    I recall an article Jesse wrote a while back, where he suggested both Mark Henry and Dolph Ziggler be added to NOD2.0, I must say I’d love them to do that right now.

  • Stephen Cash

    Woods rocked that promo. The biggest thing the tag team division is missing is tag team finishers that’s what made tag matches awesome!

  • ldb

    Shouldn’t they start with the guy that beat the crap out of them Rusev

  • Avalanchian

    This Raw just keeps getting better

  • K!NG

    very good promo by xavier woods. Story lines are getting better.

  • Paul Jameson

    Rusev can’t figure out if he’s waving a flag or rowing a boat

  • Seth

    You know what. Points for Rusev to selling his ankle a little bit here.

  • savokes

    let’s see if the WWE keeps this thing going with Putin and all

    • BlazeKing

      Till the wheels fall off…

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

    I hope Lana cuts a promo not apologizing for anything she said last night.

  • Bryan N.

    Moment of truth, where will they go from here?

  • Stephen Cash

    Boo! I agree with Richard WWE should apologize for last night… It was tasteless and an idiotic idea, but overall disrespectful to the families of the fallen….

  • Danny Philippi

    WWE is pitching a near perfect game so far. Only thing missing is a Lesnar F5!

    • Stephen Cash

      It’ll happen to Cena tonight.

  • Paul Jameson

    now THAT was a smart move….don’t even let her speak

  • Bryan N.

    Oh god, don’t ruin the night. Please!

  • The Breaker

    So there’s WWE’s response… she doesn’t get to talk at al!

  • Moose

    This makes perfect sense…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I think this is WWE’s response for it. A big Eff You!

    • Bryan N.

      A 7 foot tall middle finger

    • Paul Jameson

      who can we send out that would just tick people off more….*snap* I got it…Khali!

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

      as it should be.

  • BlazeKing

    Damn, NO promo for Lana *or* Rusev!!!

  • James Larochelle

    Instant classic on the way…

  • Mike McCarthy

    I can see both sides of the Putin argument, but I’m not going to get my panties in a twist over it. It’s definitely very controversial but I don’t feel it’s my place to judge WWE. If they’re going to do it, let them. They’re a multi-million dollar company and are capable of learning from their mistakes. So whether they make said mistakes doesn’t affect me and my views at all.

    • Avalanchian

      Til sponsors speak up then things might change.

  • Avalanchian

    So Rusev destroys Khali and Swagger comes out.

  • Moose

    I just had a vision of him as Herman Munster.

  • Seth

    It is painful watching Khali even walk.

  • Paul Jameson

    OK..COME on Swagger interfere and let Khali win….then we’d have a night where Ryder, Ziggler AND Khali all won

    • David Jr.

      Three of IWC’s favorites?

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

      Are we sure the rapture hasn’t happened and we all are dreaming?

  • Seth

    It’s even more painful to see Khali miss that boot twice and get air.

  • tone

    lmao @ this match!!

  • K!NG

    love how he is selling the ankle

  • BlazeKing

    Khali is literally a walking joke at this point…

    • Moose

      When hasn’t that been the case?

      • BlazeKing

        When he was feuding with Taker and Batista.

        • Stephen Cash

          Did you take those feuds seriously…?

      • The Breaker

        When he feuded with Undertaker and was WHC?

        • Stephen Cash

          Still was a joke then too

  • Seth

    I never want to see Khali wrestle ever again with how much trouble he has walking period yet alone doing anything without hurting himself or someone else.

  • Stephen Cash

    It’s obvious that HHH is choosing Lesnar… I hope he chooses someone else and then Lesnar comes out and destroys everyone and we get a triple threat… I don’t like obvious… Honestly, I would prefer Lesnar not be involved at all, but I know that’s not happening.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Sheamus vs. Rusev on Main Event

  • jdl

    Did… did Zak Ryder just win a match? Do my eyes deceive me?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      NOPE!!!

  • savokes

    speaking of Sheamus…we haven’t had a Sheamus sighting on RAW yet have we? Or as I like to call him….Sheamson

  • The Breaker

    They’d better write the word “fella” into the script for Sheamus to say.

  • Seth

    Cody Rhodes can get almost anything over. I’ll say this repeatedly. There IS a wrestling gene…and it is in the Rhodes Family. My God…

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

    Willy Wonka!!!!

    • James

      quite right, stop the boat

  • CJ Blaze

    I love Stardust.

  • BlazeKing

    I absolutely love how Stardust makes Goldie seem “normal” hahaha!!!!

  • savokes

    My Preciousssssss

  • savokes

    I totally forgot this match was happening!!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    This should be good!

  • Scott

    HUGE POP for Ambrose!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This is just so… Wow… How has Cody not become WWE WHC yet?

    • Stephen Cash

      Agreed!!! One of the most talented I’ve ever seen! Ever

    • Seth

      They’ve never shown THAT level of faith in him yet. Honestly…Cody Rhodes could be a hell’va heel world champion at this point just with the range he has as a performer and character.

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

      Good news is he is still young has time.

    • The Breaker

      It’s funny how so many more people complain about Sandow and Ziggler being underutilized. Cody’s almost a bigger oversight by WWE.

  • Paul Jameson

    no…stop calling Ambrose the wild one….we dont wanna hear florida again…

    • The Breaker

      XD

  • Stephen Cash

    This should be great!

  • Laurenz

    This show is about to get better.i see Seth interfering in this match.

  • BlazeKing

    So that’s why Dean’s theme hasn’t been released yet… It’s been remixed!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They have to get it just the way VKM and Jim Johnston likes for him. But I’m not complaining. I want to get it when they have it perfect.

      • BlazeKing

        Yeah, I wasn’t really too fond of the first version myself.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think Goldust is going to be with WWE for a long time to come. Even once he’s off TV he would be a great addition to NXT. Having Goldust help some of the younger guys work on their characters would be a great amount of help, as well as a huge honor.

    • David Jr.

      His dad does it, so why not.

  • David Jr.

    So when was the last time the comments hit 1000 with about a half hour left?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’s been a couple of weeks, but this looks like we will hit our best numbers since before ER!

  • Big D

    Is it just me or is Ambrose not far off from having Benoit’s theme?

  • Stoney

    Did I just see Zack Eyder and win in the same sentence?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You sure did. Niflheim is thawing as we speak.

  • Stephen Cash

    The best part of the Goldie’s gimmick is it sets up a perfect Cody heel turn.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Another reminder from Tom about Trip’s decision he welcomes Ziggler. He asks if he’s qualified. He says he never knows, he’s been placed in tighter slots before. He knows if he’s chosen the Universe will love it. Did you hear them tonight. He was in the Figure 4 but he knew that the fans would help him get out of it and go on to win the match. But here’s the best part, tonight he starts his own streak. He’ll never lose, he’s not a champ but the WWE Universe knows that in their hearts, he’s the Intercontinental Champion. By the way congrats to Zack Ryder. Ziggler isn’t talking about the match, but the fact that he got an entrance!

  • savokes

    Correct me if I’m wrong here…but was it Cody that debuted the white IC belt?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Aye.

    • David Jr.

      You are correct.
      Well not debut but brought it back.

      • savokes

        right right, thanks for the clarification!

  • Mike McCarthy

    They’re seriously showing a replay of this….AGAIN!?!?!?!

    • BlazeKing

      Something else is going to follow up on it. Vintage Kevin Dunn production.

    • Paul Jameson

      they have to show why she was arrested

      • Mike McCarthy

        2nd replay of the arrest, 4th of the Brie segment.

    • savokes

      You know how the WWE likes to beat a dead horse, bury it, exhume it, and beat it again…

    • Laurenz

      We are going to see this segment replayed for the next month.

  • James Larochelle

    Wouldn’t they NOT want to reshow the incriminating incident?

    • The Breaker

      Steph must’ve ticked off one of the production guys or something.

  • Bryan N.

    Nope still censored at this hour

  • Scott

    Oh a half censor this time!

  • Stephen Cash

    Seems like just yesterday Cody was running in to save his dad and jumping of the top rope with his cross body finisher on Orton.

  • Xavier

    Had too step out. What did I miss after Steph got arrested

    • Stephen Cash

      NOD!!

      • Xavier

        What’s that mean lol

        • Scott

          NEW NATION OF DOMINATION!

        • CJ Blaze

          Nation of Domination

    • savokes

      Yes, a BIG tease for NOD 2.0

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

      Woods came out and cut a Malcom X type of promo about forming a group. also WWE said FU about the lana promo by refusing to mention it and not letting lana say anything.

      • Xavier

        My man Malcolm X, can’t go wrong there.

        • Stephen Cash

          Woods knocked the promo out of the park too!!!

          • Xavier

            Damnit, gonna have to catch the reply tomorrow

    • Mike McCarthy

      Xavier Woods, Kofi & Big E aligned. Rusev beat Khali.

  • GODSENT68

    Is it me or are the Raws from MIA usually really good???

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They seem to turn it up a few notches for Miami.

  • Paul Jameson

    battery and resisting arrest….I didn’t see her resist that much lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’d love to see Cesaro align with The Authority!

    • Paul Jameson

      as long as it gets him a new theme song…me too

    • The Breaker

      I kind of don’t, because then he would just be one of HHH’s cronies.

      • CJ Blaze

        But do you want him to be one of Triple H’s cronies or enhancement talent?

        • Stephen Cash

          He will be neither…

        • The Breaker

          Knowing WWE, those are the only two options for Cesaro right now lol

  • Stoney

    Did I just see Zack Ryder and win in the same sentence?

    • Paul Jameson

      was funny the first time…but yes.

    • Stephen Cash

      Go home

  • Avalanchian

    Wonder if possibly Lesnar comes out to destroy Cesaro and Ambrose in the wake of things among possibly others.

  • savokes

    throwback to old school wrestling in the person of Cesaro

  • BlackLotus

    Dean Ambrose = Brian Pillman

  • Scott

    Wonder if well get a Roman Reigns/Lesnar staredown tonight.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Cesaro, Rollins, Orton & Kane vs. Reigns, Ambrose & friends. Would be a cool addition to SummerSlam if it got a good amount of time.

  • Paul Jameson

    is Ambrose gonna always be shoulder taped……i haven’t seen a major shoulder injury last this long….

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

      He’s gone to DDP’s school of Rib Injuries.

    • K!NG

      he will be like bob orton wearing a cast for 2 years

  • Stephen Cash

    Ambrose goes over clean.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App crashed, fortunately this is the last one.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Reload just failed for the 3rd consecutive time.

      • Paul Jameson

        just minor action….mostly cesaro keeping ambrose down…

  • Danny Philippi

    This is what can do without its champion present. Maybe we see this again in four weeks. Lesnar for #1 Contender! Lesnar for #1 Contender. Make the WWE Championship matches matter again like the times of Hogan, Bret, and Austin

    • Mike McCarthy

      If you think the WWE Championship hasn’t mattered since Hogan/Austin/Bret, you’re insane.

      • Danny Philippi

        The last time the WWE Championship mattered was the Daniel Bryan twin wins at this year’s WrestleMania and before that, CM Punk’s 434 day reign, Just saying that Hogan did not defend the title at every PPV and so didn’t Bret or Austin, but you knew they were the drawing card for WWE.

    • Stephen Cash

      Pretty sure you’re drunk lol

  • James Larochelle

    I could see Cesaro get chosen by HHH and then Heyman and Lesnar come out destroy him so HHH changes his mind and gives the shot to Lesnar setting up a future match between Cesaro and Lesnar at a future PPV after Brock wons the title.

    • Stephen Cash

      I would like that… Good thinking

    • The Breaker

      That makes a lot of sense.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Was thinking the same thing, but I’m not a fan of watching Cesaro get buried.

      • The Breaker

        It’s not a burial if they’re setting up for something bigger.

        • Mike McCarthy

          I understand that, and would be in favor of it. But Cesaro’s my favorite wrestler, it’s not fun watching you’re favorite wrestler get pummeled.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah, I know what you mean haha

    • Xavier

      You beat me too it lol

      • James Larochelle

        Heheh. Great minds and all that.

  • K!NG

    what the hell is the crowd doing ?

  • Xavier

    Anyone else get the feeling Cesaro will win then Triple H will act like he’s gonna choose him only too have Lesnar interrupt and destroy Cesaro

    • Avalanchian

      Yup that’s what I felt would happen.

    • The Breaker

      That’s what James said below.

    • Andrew

      yeah im starting to feel that

    • Mike McCarthy

      I think we’re all starting to lean towards that.

    • James Larochelle

      Guess not.

  • James Larochelle

    Stone Cold must be happy to see Cesaro wearing knee pads.

    • Paul Jameson

      you can tell he’s still not too used to them…they are mostly shin pads right now lol

      • Moose

        Flair pads.

      • James Larochelle

        They sure slid down

  • Scott

    I really think the darkhorse breakout star is Ambrose! I know everyone is looking at Reigns (I really like him myself) but theres something about Ambrose…..he just gets it. Hes got music that commands attention (the reving engine being similar to a certain sound of glass breaking), a character that people can get behind, solid in the ring and extrordinary on the mic. He already is the total package when it comes to what makes someone successful in professional wrestling!

  • savokes

    I love the execution of the tornado DDT when the recipient almost does a headstand to sell it…classic!

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

    That was a really awkward position for that pin attempt

  • Seth

    Cesaro just went for the crossface chickenwing. I marked out.

  • K!NG

    Cesaro was going for the crossface chicken wing

  • Stephen Cash

    Why doesn’t Cesaro use that awesome power bomb flip thing? That’s one of the best finishers!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The Canadian Destroyer? It takes a certain level of agility to do it, and Cesaro has too much muscle mass for it.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Brock Lesnar was photographed getting onto a tour bus outside of the American Airlines Arena.

    • Stephen Cash

      Everyone knew he was coming!!!

  • Laurenz

    Ambrose for the win and then Brock out and does what cesaro couldn’t do and beat down Ambrose. Hhh picks Brock for the title match.

  • Paul Jameson

    no matter what scenario…this arena will go loud when borks music hits…

  • The Breaker

    Ambrose! The lunatic fringe!

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

    Pretty good match. Ambrose selling that I’m Crazy thing works too.

  • Avalanchian

    Loving Ambrose more and more.

  • Seth

    Dean Ambrose gives no f*bleep*s.

    • David Jr.

      Is Ambrose the Stone Cold of this generation?

      • Paul Jameson

        no but easily the pillman

  • Mike McCarthy

    Hahah, Renee, what a female thing to say.

  • Stephen Cash

    Bad ending

    • Mike McCarthy

      Agreed.

  • Paul Jameson

    Renee…that question took juevos…..

  • Danny Philippi

    I want Lesnar. LET”S DO THIS!

  • Laurenz

    I hope Ambrose is still sitting in the ring once hunter comes out.

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

    Renee asking the tough questions unlike Josh Matthews.

  • Bryan N.

    Next week: Renee Young vs all heel divas in a handicap mud pool match

    • Paul Jameson

      she’s the golden girl…I would be shocked if that ever happened….

    • Seth

      Renee Young could probably take a bump or do an offensive move better than Eva Marie.

      • Bryan N.

        Mike freakin’ Adamle could bump/sell better than Eva

  • K!NG

    Here comes Braden Walker boys and girls this walker vs cena has the makings of HBK vs Taker

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Knock Knock!

      • K!NG

        thats what HHH is gonna say when he announces him lol

      • ldb

        whos there?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Braden Walker, and I’m gonna knock your brains out.

      • BlazeKing

        I know it’s you Braden. I’ll just go ahead and knock my own brains out now…

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom Phillips talks AGAIN talk about HHH’s decision. He shoots us to ANOTHER CLIP FROM BATTLEGROUND. John Cena’s post-match interview. Bad night for App fans (other than The Wyatt Family attack)

    • BlazeKing

      And that’s the last thing for the app tonight.

  • Stephen Cash

    I don’t want Lesnar, but if it has to happen I want HHH to bring out the whole roster then talk about chosing one of them, but then say I choose “Lesnar Music” he comes out and destroys the whole roster minus the authority. Make him the beast he should be. I don’t think it buries the whole roster because Lesnar is on “another level” beat the streak. Also sets up Bryan vs Lesnar because Bryan wasn’t there for the beat down.

    • Mike McCarthy

      That would be horrible, because the only way it would work is if the entire roster stood still and waited their turn to get their A** kicked.

  • Danny Philippi

    Wish this Raw never ended.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    No Ambrose makes me sad.

    • Seth

      The world can use more Ambrose.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Trollololol

  • Mike McCarthy

    Lesnar’s still gonna come out.

  • Dustyn

    Lesnar’s pyro set up.

  • Paul Jameson

    ….and here comes the pain……

  • Avalanchian

    Well we know it’s not Orton

  • Xavier

    Poor Randy is about to become Cena food lol

  • The Breaker

    He didn’t pick Orton! BS!

  • Stephen Cash

    Troll!!! Orton face turn!!!

  • Bryan N.

    Hit the music Jimmy!

  • Xavier

    Wait Nevermind lol

  • K!NG

    reigns….. as i was typing that he attacked orton

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Roman REIGNS over Orton!

  • Mike McCarthy

    ……hahahahah

  • Mike McCarthy

    They came out and brawled all the way to the back in less than a minute.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Pop for Heyman!

  • Avalanchian

    Here we go!

  • The Breaker

    My name is Paul Heyman…

  • Luke

    LADIES & GENTLEMEN…MY NAME IS PAUL HEYMAN

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

    didn’t Brock return in Miami 2 years ago?

    • Dustyn

      Yup

  • Laurenz

    I guess they went with the simple way.

  • Bryan N.

    NEXT BIG THING!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That arena just blew up!

    • David Jr.

      I guess the people who hated the streak ending, now like it.

    • Bryan N.

      The ceiling just hit the International Space Station Jesse, and it’s still going!

  • Moose

    Here comes the pain!!

  • ldb

    HEYMAN should have been a comic book villian

  • Laurenz

    The roof just blew up.

  • Paul Jameson

    that shirt needed to say Ate, Slept, Broke the Streak….

  • The Breaker

    Brock had BETTER beat Cena.

    • Stephen Cash

      I’m against part time champions, but I agree for storyline purposes

    • Avalanchian

      He will don’t worry. It’s 100% going to happen.

      • The Breaker

        Lesnar should’ve beaten Cena at Extreme Rules 2012, but it didn’t happen.

  • lml2525

    “What a shock!”
    - said no one ever

  • Seth

    That shirt…is so trolling it’s great.

  • Stephen Cash

    They did this wrong… Could have been much better

  • Danny Philippi

    BEAST FOR HIRE. BEAST FOR MY DESIRE FOR CENA”S DOOM! MOHOHOHAHAHAHA!

  • Moose

    I’m so looking forward to next week’s RAW and fallout from HHH not going immediately to get Steph out of jail.

  • K!NG

    to be honest undertaker still has a streak…. no one has won in 21 wrestlemania matches….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Lesnar getting a pop only could happen by facing Cena.

    • savokes

      haha, said the same thing at the same time haha

    • Stephen Cash

      However that pop instantly made the streak break win pointless….

    • BlazeKing

      Classic Vince McMahon profiteering 101. Use the fans while making them oblivious to it.

  • savokes

    interesting…because he’s going against Cena, there is almost NO heat for Lesnar, even though he broke the streak

  • David Jr.

    John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar the rubber match.

    • Mike McCarthy

      The rubber match is third after each win once.

      • K!NG

        Brock beat Cena in 03 Cena beat brock in 2012

      • Xavier

        They foufht way back in 03 at Backlash

      • David Jr.

        I know what a rubber match is.

  • K!NG

    Sad brock could make it to the show and cena couldnt that must be a first

    • Mike McCarthy

      He’s filming.

  • Luke

    Heyman is great on the mic!

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

    Continuing to troll the IWC.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I have to say this: the last few shows and PPVs, Cena has been starting to get that HH pre-NWO heat. I say, give it until WM 32, and Cena will be primed for that epic level turn.

    • Paul Jameson

      seriously…you still see Cena needed by WM 32? I was hoping we’d be able to let him go by then.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I don’t think he’ll be needed, necessarily. I think he won’t be ready to hang it up then. He’ll want to go to the dark side one last time.

        • Paul Jameson

          i would say if we could get a match good enough where a double turn could take place, I’d be for it, but I just hope Cena can last almost 2 more years….he’s going full blow now that it will eventually catch up to his body.

      • BlazeKing

        Let him go by WM32? *WWE* letting him go by WM32?!
        They’ll let that dude go when he can’t walk straight anymore!

        • Paul Jameson

          yeah i didn’t put what i meant, I didn’t mean like terminate his use…I just meant the need as a top talent on the card, if they play their cards right, by WM 32 there could be some major players to give Cena some much needed slow down time and rest….

          • Xavier

            Reigns

      • Alex

        Well the only chance of a heel turn for Cena is once he’s not needed and that’s still a big if for his heel turn.

    • The Breaker

      I’ll believe it when I see it. And if they wait too long, it won’t have the same impact.

    • Xavier

      Cena’s heel turn should be done more like Bret Hart’s instead of Hogan’s or Austin’s

    • K!NG

      no cause if he gets a epic level heel run then he is gets back on top where i dont want him to be. to quote Owen hart Enough is Enough and its time for a change

  • The Breaker

    Even though Brock beat The Streak and should be the most hated heel in pro wrestling, he’s going up against Cena , and therefore he will be cheered.

    • Xavier

      That’s news?

      • The Breaker

        I’m just saying it’s crazy. The fans hate Cena more than they loved The Streak.

        • Xavier

          The Cena hate is overblown. He still has a fan base 3 or 4 times as large as the next popular wrestler easily. Sure, people boo him at live events but the numbers don’t lie (merch sales, twiiter, Facebook followers)

          • The Breaker

            You can’t deny the reaction he gets each and every week. He gets more heat then most of the guys that are trying to be heels.

          • Xavier

            Well that’s obvious but you said t be keyword, he gets heat, the haters are as big a reason for Cena staying on top as his fans. As long as guys like you react he’ll get pushed. Indifference to Cena or anyone else for that matter is how a wrestler gets de pushed. Cena still gets the most unique reactions probably ever. He divides wrestling fans, that’s never been done before. He still gets reactions. Rather people live or hate Cena they still care or else they wouldn’t react

          • The Breaker

            True, but you can’t blame the fans for WWE’s lack of creativity with Cena’s character and for the illogical way he’s been booked.

          • Xavier

            Illogical, how so? The Cena experiment has been a huge success on so many levels. Cena isn’t booked any differently then any other top face Vince has pushed or for that matter any top face in any promotion ever pretty much. Only difference is the IWC didn’t exist from the 50s through the mid 90s.

  • savokes

    WWE had to know that Brock was going to be cheered over Cena, which is the reason for that video, but i still don’t think it’s going to work

    • Xavier

      I don’t think the WWE is trying to get people too cheer Cena. They showed the vid to put over Lesnar as a unstoppable monster and badass

      • savokes

        true true

  • ldb

    I bet Cena does get hurt

  • Bryan N.

    Heyman is on absolute white-hot fire

  • Laurenz

    Heyman is king on the mic.

  • Moose

    Heyman is solid GOLD!!

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

    That’s a huge way to sell that match.

  • ldb

    Raw was so much better than the pay per view

    • Bryan N.

      Something’s gotta convince all these people to renew their Network subscriptions

  • The Breaker

    Cena’s the underdog… and this is where he thrives. Crap!

    • Alex

      This goes under the category of I hope WWE isn’t stupid enough to feed Lesnar to Cena but we know they’re capable of things this dumb.

  • CJ Blaze

    This may have been better than Battleground. But it certainly was better than last week’s Raw!!!

    • The Breaker

      In terms of booking it was miles better than BG. But last night’s PPV did have solid wrestling. The Usos vs. Wyatts match was great, and the main event was quite good as well.

  • Danny Philippi

    See everyone next week for WWE Raw, home to the best stickmen in the business. Ta Ta!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Goodnight!

  • savokes

    alright y’all, it was a SUPER fun night! See you all next week!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Later Savokes!

  • Moose

    Being a newcomer to these conversations, I must say I enjoy them more and more each time I participate. Thanks guys! Yall have a great night!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You too Moose, and we are glad to have you here!

  • Bryan N.

    That was a fantastic episode of Monday Night RAW. So glad I could hang on for the ride and have some really great commentary in here with y’all. Awesome night

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It was quite great! A lot of wheels in motion I didn’t think would be. Great to have you join us!

      • Bryan N.

        Honor and a pleasure Jesse. It’s been way too long since I sat in here and actually got involved. Hope to be back next week for another excellent night!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, I’m out guys. Goodnight!
