Raw Starts

In Ring Segment

Trip and Steph come out. Trip in his power suit, Steph in a black dress with small sheer panels that show off her curves. They’re all huggy and cuddly.

Trip – It’s a good night to be right!

Steph – That was good honey, I like that. As The Authority we get to make blockbuster announcements, and tonight is one of those nights.

“You suck!”

Steph – Tonight is one of those nights. We’ve all been hanging in the balance with the WWE WHC, but tonight we have resolve, so ladies and gentlemen, let’s hear it from the horses mouth, the man who performed the surgery on Bryan, Dr. Joe Maroon.

On the tron -

Dr. Maroon – Despite Daniel’s desire to return to normal activities, it would be detrimental if he returned too soon. Even though Daniel is not cleared to compete this month, he will be reevaluated this month to get him back into the ring as soon as possible.

Steph – So, there you have it, Bryan will be unable to compete at MITB. (Heat) I know you guys, but you can’t be that disappointed. You can’t expect an A+ recovery from a B+ player.

Serious heat!

Trip – That’s right, you can’t, and don’t blame us, at the end of the day, this isn’t the Daniel Bryan fan club, it’s the WWE, it’s a business, and what’s best for business is a Champ who can defend his Championship, something your beloved Bryan cannot do at MITB.

Steph – Therefore it’s with heavy heart that we officially strip Daniel Bryan of the WWE WHC.

“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”

Steph – I said it last week, if Bryan couldn’t compete, our hand is forced and Daniel, our condolences go out to you. I know you’re hearing this for the first time right now, my assistant tried to call you, but you didn’t respond and return her phone call. And our condolences go out to your ungrateful wife Brie as well. Who, as it turns out, quit for absolutely nothing.

Trip – She is a shrewd businesswoman.

Steph – She’s something else, very, very bright. But Daniel and Brie, the show much go on for everyone else. For the first time ever, there will be a WWE WHC Ladder Match at MITB. Who will have the honor of competing in that match. There will be a series of qualifying match, the first went down on Smackdown. Therefore the first entrant into the MITBLM for the WWE WHC will be ADR.

Trip – The second person entered deserves it because he is who he is, that’s the Viper, Randy Orton. We can guarantee you that at the MITB we will crown a new WWE WHC.

Steph – Amen to that!

Trip – It’s funny how everybody couldn’t wait after WrestleMania to rub it in our faces that they were right. When Bryan pulled off the fluke victory of a lifetime, you couldn’t wait to cheer for him, and it turns out that we were right the whole time. Bryan is not WWE WHC material.

Steph – Just not. And he proved it.

Trip – He’s not even here tonight. Shows how bad it is. Another thing, how many times did I tell you, adapt, or perish? But you all wanted to come out and say The Shield beat Evo, their so great. Adapt or perish. Rollins adapted! The Shield, well, look for yourself.

Video recap of Rollins turning on The Shield last week on RAW.

Trip – I don’t know about all of you, but I believe in Rollins. Ambrose, Reigns, tonight, what is left of the once dominant The Shield will whimper to the end. Tonight you will step into this ring in a 6 Man Tag Match against Bray Wyatt and The Wyatt Family. I’m going out on a limb saying that it might be tough for them to find a partner in that locker room, the locker room they’ve run roughshod over for the past two years. So, this is probably like a Handicap Match. Take out your ell phones because tonight you will witness history as The Shield whimpers into extinction. Rollins adapted and tonight The Shield perish.

They show Bryan’s straps hanging high over the ring (and if Bryan didn’t know about all this, how did they get the belts to hang?).

Harper – They said that we were pariahs. Two discarded animals, sometimes I still get those urges. Urges from a deep, dark place.

Bray – Urges. Every man has urges. But the true measure of a man is admit them, to learn to control them. The Shield used to refer to themselves as the most dominant force in our universe, but that ain’t the way I remember it. Hahaha! They fell victim to the faults of man. Their lust, and green and valor for glory. It led them right down to the pit, where they belong. And tonight, they’ll burn for it. For I am no man, I am reborn! Our bond can never be broken. And our urges can never be satisfied.

Rowan – Follow the buzzards.

(The ever was punctuated with a light punch to Reigns’ right pec.) We dominated WWE, we beat everybody, even Evolution. But we weren’t healthy, we had a cancer inside of us, little did we know. That cancer’s name was Seth Rollins. (heat) History is full of people like you Seth, everyone in this building knows someone like you Seth, someone who would stab his brother in the back. Suck up and sell out to The Authority! Now when I get the opportunity to rearrange your face, which I will, your nose isn’t going to be here anymore, it’s going to be over here (at his right temple). By your ear. I say ear, because you’re only going to have one left. I’m going to rip your dirty stinking hair out by the roots and stuff it in your mouth. There will be plenty of room where your teeth used to be. Seth Rollins, my brother, you are scum and we are looking forward to what that scum has to say tonight. Once you stand out in front of the whole world and lie through your teeth. We want you to stand out here in front of the whole world, and we want to hear Trip’s words coming out of your mouth. We’re going to listen to every word of it, then we’re going to beat the hell out of you.

Ambrose throws the mic down to sell his ire, but then turned and picked it up, handing it to Reigns with a smirk. Reigns had a huge smile as Ambrose said something only to him.

Reigns – Seth you committed the most unforgivable sin. You’re the scum of the earth. There’s things you don’t do in life. You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t piss in the wind, and you don’t ever stab your brothers in the back. But you’re only part of the problem. The other parts are Randy Orton and Triple H. Randy Orton runs around here and he thinks everybody owes him something, thinks he’s the face of the company. When I get my hands on you Randy, you’re going to be the ass of the company. And when I’m done with you, I’m coming for you Trip. The King of Kings. We’re going to have our own game of thrones. Believe that!

Reigns tosses the mic over his shoulder so it bounces. They pose to the camera. Rollins is backstage in a black suit, black shirt, black tie, sneering at the monitor.

Commercial

In Ring Segment

Cole – He’s a former member of The Shield, please welcome Seth Rollins.

Rollins out to new music, in all black and spiffy, as I wrote earlier. He struts to the ring with his hair slicked back into a ponytail, with the very slightest bit of roots, but only a couple days worth. “You sold out!” chants.

Cole – Seth, welcome. There’s been a lot of talk over the past week about…

Rollins – Michael, let me stop you before you get started, because I don’t… (HUGE heat) I don’t understand what the controversy you talk about is all about. Are we just talking about what I did last week? Because to me, that wasn’t a big deal. I was just doing what’s best for business, what was what’s best for my business. The Shield, Michael, the greatest faction in the history of the WWE, created by me! You don’t think I have the right to destroy my own creation. It takes an architect, a mastermind to put together a faction like The Shield, you think that Dean Ambrose is in any way responsible for that? Dean Ambrose is a lunatic, given a week to his own devices, he’s face down in a ditch. And Roman Reigns, the golden boy. You’ll never see anger and fury like you see in Roman Reigns, but without someone to control is, he’s nothing, he’s worthless. Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns are nothing without me!

Reigns and Ambrose are watching all this backstage on a monitor. Reigns is bunching up, Ambrose bouncing from foot to foot.

Rollins – They owe me every once of success they have ever achieved.

Cole – Many will argue that The Shield was about three individuals that came together to form an awesome team, not just about one man.

Rollins – You know I guess we will find out later tonight with the pathetic remnants of The Shield have their last hurrah out here against The Wyatt Family. Let me ask you a question Michael. Why is this such a surprise? I took The Shield to the very top, we defeated everybody, we conquered the world Michael. At Payback we beat Evolution in a clean sweep. From every event in life you should learn something, you know what I learned from Evolution, I learned that to be a success in this business, you have to evolve, you have to adapt.

“You sold out!”

Rollins – No, no, no, I bought in. I bought into the Evolution of Seth Rollins. And another thing. Another thing that you won’t admit. That you all won’t admit. It takes guts to do on what I did last week. Everyone is fixated on the fact that I stabbed my brothers in the back, that I betrayed my brothers, and maybe to Ambrose and Reigns, we were brothers. To me they were just business partners, and a severed a business relationship. For two years every night I came out here, and I put my fist out, and I said believe in The Shield, and every night what I meant is what I’m going to tell you right now is that you (Cole) and everyone else better start believing in Seth Rollins! (heat) So that’s it, that’s all you wanted to hear, right Michael? Oh, oh, wait, I was listening earlier and I heard Ambrose say that he was going to let me say my peace, then they were going to come out here and kick the hell out of me. Well…

Rollins very obviously, yet carefully throws the director chair he’d been sitting in out of the ring, but making sure it didn’t go anywhere near the fans in the front row.

Rollins – I’ve said my peace. (off mic) Where you at boys?

Off comes his jacket. The Shield comes from beside the ramp and out.

DEP!

The lights go out!

The lights come back and Rowan and Harper are in the ring across from Reigns and Ambrose. Ambrose throws himself at Harper, Reigns on Rowan. Rollins is outside yelling smack.

    Hello! Welcome to the WNW WWE Raw Open Thread Discussion!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Whatsup everyone?

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

      Mike! Glad you’re around! Sorry we had such a curfuffle earlier with WWENews!

      • Paul Jameson

        not a curfuffle! are we sure it wasn’t a snafu?

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

          No, it was really a curfuffle. Not to the point of being a snafu.

          • Mike McCarthy

            A snafu would be taking it too far, I think curfuffle is a fair and reasonable description.

  • Seth

    Good evening world.

  • Paul Jameson

    “Tonight we dine on the YES movement.” How i wish Trip would come out and say that.

  • Paul Jameson

    Well not to state the obvious, but this is a key Raw for WWE right now. Wonder how it will all go down.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      As am I Paul. With the invariable demise of the Yes Championship Era, who will come atop of the heap?

      • Paul Jameson

        if the answer to that is Rusev, I take my ball and go home to join CM punk.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Amen! Rusev… LEAVE!

          • Seth

            Can Lana stay at least? Please? Please!? PRETTY PLEASE!?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Absolutely!

          • Seth

            And Persona 4 golden reference of Yosuke going crazy on the main character to call the number he got before the man(not the woman he thought) threatened to rip off his head and spit down his neck…good times.

            …and YES! Lana can stay!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *high 5s Seth and gives him 10,000 WNW bonus points*

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

            Are you keeping track of these points you’re handing out? They could come in handy toward the end of the year.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Actually this is the first issuance of them!

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

            Or so you claim!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No, it really is! Normally, I’d DDT him!

          • Seth

            Or stun me and make me do a Rocky style sell spitting whatever I’m drinking and then a flip.

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

            Well, as long as it’s been 90s style abuse and not points!

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

            On mute!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hey everyone!!! Guess what… I’M BACK!!! Tooth is pulled, and while I still am in a lot of pain, I’m going to force through some if it so I can entertain the masses. So let’s rumble!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      “entertain the masses” aww you missed a chance to add “you’re welcome”

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Because I’m thankful just for the chance to be here tonight. Missing out on interacting with you guys for a week has been excruciating.

        • Paul Jameson

          we appreciate that…..even though you missed a definite Sandow chance…

          • Seth

            Poor Sandow’s career…how we’ve missed your chance to grow.

          • Paul Jameson

            Sandow still lives, he hasn’t been given the full Santino Marella/Zack Ryder treatment yet….there’s always hope.

          • Seth

            I’m pessimistic about his chances just because when you have a strike like that and there’s so much talent already there and yet to be called up…well your chances of recovering are slim.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No, he has received the Charlie Haas treatment!

          • Seth

            At least Haas’s impression of the late Mr. Perfect was very funny.

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

      Jesse, you’re the man! Working through the pain! I hope you have something to take for that, because I’m taking something for my gut pain right now!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sadly, they didn’t give me anything because it should only be temporary. It’s already starting to subside. It feels much better than the tooth did!

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

          Well, I’m still taking mine!

  • Danny Philippi

    What is up WNW Nation? I hope THEY capitalize tonight. If THEY do not, THEY might lose out on a viewer next week as I am going on a business trip.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      THEY need to be sure to make a big impact to open the show. Because this week will truly be dictated by the opening.

      • Danny Philippi

        For those wondering, my business trip will be to New Jersey for the Special Olympics USA Games. And WWE is sponsoring it. Out on a limb.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Awesome! I love that WWE is working with a great organization such as Special Olympics.

        • Paul Jameson

          I was actually just typing to ask this….good work!

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

          Bravo! If you get any interview time, we own you.

      • Paul Jameson

        to quote JR “The world is watching” and sadly that will never be more true now that DB can’t go….

  • CJ Blaze

    Hey everyone!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Heyo CJ!

      • CJ Blaze

        Feeling toothless? :)

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

          Toothless aggression!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m not Benoit yet!

          • Paul Jameson

            stop….making me want….kurt angle back even more!

    • Paul Jameson

      what up blaze….we gonna have a brother blaze tonight?!

      • CJ Blaze

        He’s gone tonight, but may be back Friday again haha.

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

      CJ! Where’s BJ?

      • CJ Blaze

        He won’t be here tonight, he thinks he’s a social butterfly and chose friends over wrestling.

        • Paul Jameson

          he’ll feel like a heel (pun intended) when you tell him we asked about him

          • CJ Blaze

            Haha nice

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

            I’d like to have you tell him that I was giving a motherly glare, but socializing is important.

          • CJ Blaze

            I was told I don’t socialize enough. I said I do with plenty of people online haha.

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

            I know, and I’d like to harass you about the last time you went out, but you’ve been posting some amazing articles, so I’m going to just avoid going there.

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

    I want to say something to all those who sit back and read the Open Thread Discussion.

    Just this weekend Jesse learned that there was a WNW reader who lives quite close to him. You never know who you could meet if you speak up and say hello. I’ve always wondered if there were any other Maine-iacs in here who might be interested in hitting a local indie show with me, as I don’t have any local wrestling friends – other than indie wrestlers.

    I’ve met some of my closest friends through WNW. Gesus is wonderful, and Jesse even came to Maine to visit me. Amazing things can happen!

    So, who are you? Why do you lurk? Why not say hi, you never know who you might meet! Please know that we work hard to keep the bashing and bullying to an absolute minimum here, and if someone says something you think isn’t cool and we miss it, just let us know! That’s what we’re here for. So say hi.

    • Paul Jameson

      Sting was my idol…so that’s why I lurk. Rafters are the COOLEST!

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

        But you’ve been stepping up and talking! You were a blast on Friday!

        • Paul Jameson

          thats me, quick with a joke or light of a smoke….

          • Jesse Sherwood

            But there’s someplace he’d rather be!

          • Paul Jameson

            not on Monday nights! lol

    • CJ Blaze

      If anybody lives in Illinois, let me know! :)

    • Seth

      West Virginia kid here. Go me.

  • Paul Jameson

    I hope David Jr. makes it in tonight. His Boston article is a great read.

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

      He’s really impressed us with that series. From commenter to top writer. Hint, hint.

  • Danny Philippi

    Worst Case Scenario?
    A. Daniel Bryan faces Kane in the stretcher match at Money in the Bank
    B. Alberto Del Rio wins the Money in the Bank Match
    C. Rusev defeats Sheamus to become US Champion
    D. TNA chants at WWE live events

    • CJ Blaze

      Now you are making think….

    • Paul Jameson

      I think if D happens…we’ve entered into the apocalypse and we all need to make the best of the time that is left.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      B, C, and D are all on par… But I have to go with E. HHH declares himself champion, only to lose it in the same night to John Cena, who then loses it to Bray Wyatt.

      • Seth

        Which the leads to F: The Belt being turned into a something that’s just tossed around and passed around more than Sunny in an ECW locker room.

        • Paul Jameson

          awwww, poor Sunny……she just wanted to be Miss Elizabeth….

          • Seth

            I met her once. Did not treat me worth a damn at all honestly. Just not a nice person.

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

            She no showed three shows one weekend in Maine after being heavily advertised. I talked to the people running the shows, and my wrestler friends. They were all disgusted, but also glad they didn’t have to put up with her. Turns out she wanted triple the money before getting on the plane.

          • Seth

            That doesn’t surprise me at all honestly. But Sunny wasn’t even the worst one I’ve dealt with. That goes to Matt Hardy who I can say many four letter words about in not a nice fashion.

            On the positive end though…Sonjay Dutt and Mickie James were awesome.

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

            Jesse and I were so impressed with Matt Hardy when we met him. He was so messed up on something. Reby was lovely, but Matt wasn’t at all good.

            The thing is that Matt was overshadowed by Vader who was a total tool at that event.

          • Seth

            Seems like to me Vader is one of those people you either talk swimmingly about or have an absolute disliking toward. There isn’t any in-between with the guy.

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

            He was a total jackass to pretty much everyone there. When the most recent debacle came about, neither Jesse or I were surprised.

          • Seth

            Okay…never dealing with Vader then. Noted.

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

            He was at a signing table, as was Hardy and a number of others. Vader actually was standing up, facing away from the table, and couldn’t be bothered when fans came up to talk to him.

            Matt sat there in a fog. Zach Gowen was in front of his table, hanging out with everyone, talking, shaking hands, hugging, taking pictures. He stole my heart.

          • Seth

            Gowen certainly is a great inspiration to wrestling fans and wrestlers themselves. Ain’t anyone that can deny that.

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

            He’s a great guy. He’s been lovely to us at WWENews.net, answering any questions we’ve had for him.

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

          I read that aloud and my 10 year old said, “I don’t get it!”

          I said, “Good!”

          “He got really damaged in the locker room?”

          “Yes!”

          • Seth

            I apologize to you and your ten year old on the spot.

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

            Oh, heck no! I’m the one who read it aloud!

            Sam is great about these things. She thinks it’s either something she doesn’t understand, or something sexual she doesn’t understand. Jesse will agree with me that she’s a great kid and absolutely full of it.

          • Paul Jameson

            yeah there’s just no saving that one….I tried to go along the lines that the ECW locker room didn’t know how to play duck duck goose correctly…..and well….it just falls apart.

  • Mike McCarthy

    With Xbox 360 offering WWE Network without a Live membership, this has been a pretty good couple days.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      XBOX removed the paywall for most video services. Good way to gain some PR points, but it is something they should have never had in the first place.

  • Scott

    Whats up everyone?!?! Think the blockbuster announcement will be about Bryan? Also what do you all think of WWEs casting call for an orchestra wearing Sting facepaint? A return promo package or DVD advertisement? I find it hard to believe that they would go through all that effort for a DVD ad…..

    • Paul Jameson

      i say triple duty…..vignettes, dvd use, and possible wrestlemania entrance next year.

      • Scott

        It would be awesome if they could bring him in once in a while before Wrestlemania season. Do an angle where hes retired and makes guest appearances and someone “forces him out of retirement” for a Mania match. I think the Taker/Sting ship has sailed but someone like Bryan, Rollins, Ambrose, Bray Wyatt could be a compelling match. Worst case scenario, Sting vs Cena

        • Paul Jameson

          Sting would have no desire to face Cena. If there is no Taker/Sting…..Sting will not wrestle another match.

          • Scott

            I personally would love to see Taker/Sting. Two of the greatest legends in wrestling for a one time showdown and they both retire.

          • Paul Jameson

            One could argue 2 of the greatest character gimmicks of the 90s (granted one is more original than the other) facing off….who WOULDN’T want that to happen just one time.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It has to be about Bryan since it is The Authority and not Evolution or just HHH.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Pre-Show is starting, any updates on Raw announced I’ll relay to you guys.

  • CJ Blaze

    Well I’m off to eat real quick, be back soon

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

      No food for you! Wrestling, all wrestling, all the time!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Pre-Show just revealed the blockbuster announcement is about Daniel Bryan.

    • Mike McCarthy

      They titled it “Daniel Bryan Breaking News”.

      • Paul Jameson

        kinda figured it had to be, right? I mean authority would only make it about DB. Good call, I can’t get my network to work right now. On the road in a hotel with bad internet.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Also tonight, Seth Rollins breaks his silence.

    • Paul Jameson

      he technically already broke it, so that’s sad choice of programming.

      • Mike McCarthy

        On SmackDown he said the only person that knows why he turned on The Shield is him and he’s the only one that needs to know.

        So he really didn’t explain anything.

  • Xavier

    What’s good everyone

    • Paul Jameson

      chips and salsa….what’s good with you?!

      • Xavier

        Chicken & Dumplings

        • Seth

          Burger and fries.

        • Paul Jameson

          awwww snap, breaking it down home cookin style! nice

          • Xavier

            Lol yessir

  • David Jr.

    Hi, everyone. I’m David Jr. and I like warm hugs!

    • Paul Jameson

      I don’t have a hug for ya, but I do wanna say great Boston article!

      • David Jr.

        Are you from Boston?

        • Paul Jameson

          not in the least, but I enjoyed the read!

          • David Jr.

            Where are you from, maybe I’ll do that one soon or already done it?

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

          I was born just south of Boston! Warm hugs to you!

          • David Jr.

            I think I knew that, that’s why I used your suggestion.

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

            I do appreciate that. Stacy looked at me like I was a little kid when I squealed earlier reading the article to him.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Dolph Ziggler vs. Titus O’neil on WWE Superstars

  • Scott

    Could you guys see Ziggler get the fans behind him in the way they did with Daniel Bryan?

    • Xavier

      Probably not. Bryan had a real catchy chant and a cult following before coming over to the E. Ziggler has neither

    • Paul Jameson

      I dunno. I think the DB thing was akin to the Stone Cold era….happened once authentically, but won’t be reproduced again.

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

        Agreed.

  • Xavier

    Any predictions on what the major announcement will be?

    • Mike McCarthy

      There will be two Money in the Bank matches, one for the WWE Championship and one for the World Heavyweight Championship.

      • Mike McCarthy

        And that Daniel Bryan won’t be able to compete.

      • Scott

        They really do need to split the titles up

        • Xavier

          They should of never ended the brand split to begin with.

          • Seth

            The brand split created fresher match ups and more chances for talent to move up. Its kind of ironic that when they ended the brand split their PPV buys declined more. Honestly the more chances there are for someone to get over the better.

          • Xavier

            Agreed. Notice how the lack of direction in creative started around mid/late 2011 around the time they ended the split as well?

          • Seth

            Honestly it’d be a good idea to have that brand split and more importantly…at least for a couple years…do not have the stars of opposite brands interact with one another unless its a big 4 PPV. It’s a good way to build interest in those shows and deliver more chances to create more stars.

          • Paul Jameson

            With the network now launched I’m afraid this idea (which I like by the way) would be VERY hard to live by.

          • Seth

            Seperation makes the heart yearn for the what ifs. That’s my thinking anyhow.

          • Xavier

            Agreed. That’s what I loved about the WWE from 03 thru 07. RAW and SD felt very different from one another. I remember Survivor Series 05 (one of my favorite PPVs) because the battle of brand supremacy felt like a very big deal.

          • Paul Jameson

            I used to feel this way early on, but the talent level just isn’t there anymore for a brand extension. I’m happy with the main roster and NXT right now.

          • Xavier

            I think the talent level is real deep actually. RAW can be one brand and Smackdown/NXT can be another.

          • Seth

            Honestly, I think there is more talent top to bottom compared to there was when they first did the Brand Split when there was more top heavy talent. I’m all about giving people more chances to get over.

          • Xavier

            If you look at the WWE from 03 thru 07 creative did a really good job of planning out storylines and following thru with them. The shows felt more structured because you had a RAW, SD and ECW creative team. RAW vs SMACKDOWN match ups use too be a really big deal as well. 03 thru 07 is a very underrated era in the WWE IMHO.

          • Paul Jameson

            Oh I’m all about giving chances too. But honestly, if we broke down the talent, it would be hard to justify who was on what show. Because we would be fostering this “b+” mentality with Smackdown becoming the B show. Let’s face it…Smackdown will ALWAYS be the B show. So we’d stack RAW, the premiere show with Cena, Wyatts, HHH, and the like going back to RKO, Sheamus, Del Rio and the like hitting the SMackdown show once again.

            This would help the talent of Xavier Woods, Bo Dallas, Adam Rose, and yes even the Bulgarian Bumponalog Rusev (who we’d thankfully only see once a week). They’d all get a chance, but who would be watching? If they hit that Smackdown roster, they’d be more likely to be passed over.

          • Xavier

            The biggest problem with Smackdown is that it’s on Friday. Who’s home on a Friday evening honestly. If they moved Smackdown back to Thursday that would be major

          • Jesse Sherwood

            If Smackdown moves to Thursday, a certain company will die a quick and painful death.

          • David Jr.

            whaT compaNy could thAt be?

          • Xavier

            Lol, I haven’t followed that Orlando territory since around 06/07

          • Mike McCarthy

            A relaunched brand extension would be even better this time around because of the WWE Network. Both brands get their own show on cable and another one-hour show on the WWE Network for each. Brand Extension in 2014 would be way better than the Brand Extension in 2002.

          • Xavier

            Amen

      • Paul Jameson

        agreed it is time to split the titles.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Or one for the title and one for a case.

        • Paul Jameson

          yeah we talked about that last week, but if creative really wanted to get a little breathing room, splitting the titles would be the best first step.

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

          That’s what I was thinking. They really need two MITB matches.

        • Mike McCarthy

          That’s the only other thing I’ve heard. Wouldn’t be against it but I feel like this is their chance to jump off the unification ship.

    • John

      They are stripping Bryan of the title, nothing major at all.

  • Scott

    Big Ziggler chant! Sounded like they turned crowd mic down during it though

    • Avalanchian

      Of course they want the tv viewing audience to only hear so much. Because their precious PG rating would be thrown out.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Dolph beats Titus O’neil on WWE Superstars after hitting a ZigZag

    • Paul Jameson

      And dolph’s losses come to an end…..on superstars. Might as well have been at a live show.

  • Paul Jameson

    Is this the end of the YES movement though? Can DB come back stronger?

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

      I think he absolutely can. Not saying he’s Austin, but I think he will have that resilience.

      • Seth

        Nobody is Austin but Austin but I think what we need to also start saying more of is…nobody is Daniel Bryan but Daniel Bryan.

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

          I will give you that.

    • Avalanchian

      He can only come back stronger if the writers don’t mess it up. Just like a gimmick can make or break wrestlers too.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Look at John Cena, Triple H, Shawn Michaels. All of them came back from a long injury bigger than when they left.

  • Danny Philippi

    Adam Rose vs. Heath Slater on WWE Superstars

  • Danny Philippi

    Also, BNB vs. Sheamus and RVD vs. Cesaro in MITB Qualifying Matches on Raw. Announced on WWE Pre-Show

    • Jesse Sherwood

      So at least one midcard champ will be in MITB.

    • Avalanchian

      So BNB beats Sheamus and Cesaro beats RVD.

      • Paul Jameson

        Sheamo will win and RVD will win, BNB will face Cesaro for the title.

        • Avalanchian

          2 Heels doesn’t work for the most part 1 on 1.

          • Paul Jameson

            true, but crazier things have happened.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I think BNB and RVD will win. Sheamus and Cesaro doesn’t feel done yet.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Randy Orton just tweeted “Wish I could’ve made it tonight…. #RAW” attached with a photo of him at a resort.

  • Scott

    Ummmm and Cena Booker…..geez whos punchbowl did Sandow poo in?

  • John

    If WWE are smart then they will put the titles on Seth Rollins. But i suspect they will play it safe and put it on Cena, which hopefully leads to Lesnar beating him at SummerSlam.

    • Avalanchian

      I think Lesnar gets the title soon.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’ve got Bad News Barrett and Rob Van Dam winning tonight.

    • Paul Jameson

      and to put mine on the same table….I say Sheamo and RVD in the MiTB match with BNB facing Cesaro for the title.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I feel like that’s what they’re doing but Sheamus doesn’t belong in MitB.

        • Paul Jameson

          haha and ADR does?!

  • Paul Jameson

    Aren’t we in Minnesota tonight?! Doesn’t Brock live in Minnesota still….for now….?!

    • Mike McCarthy

      Yupp, he lives in Alexandria, 2 hours away from Minneapolis which is where we are tonight.

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

        Interesting, but I don’t see him showing without advertisement. I could be wrong because of location, but I’d be shocked.

        • Paul Jameson

          yeah I’m not banking on it…I just remember when RAW would come to Cali and the Rock would show up unannounced….those were some good RAWs

  • Mike McCarthy

    Adam Rose just won on WWE Superstars.

    • Seth

      Its better than losing on Superstars.

      • Paul Jameson

        don’t be a lemon….be a rosebud

  • CJ Blaze

    I’m back and ready for some Raw action!

  • Danny Philippi

    ONE MINUTE!

  • CJ Blaze

    Also, Richard just posted an update on Bryan as well as a picture of Bo Dallas traveling with Ambrose & Reigns

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

      Goodness, I hope he’s just traveling with them!

      • CJ Blaze

        No kidding!

      • Seth

        Hah. Honestly I would love to be in the car with Ambrose just because when he’s away from the ring…he’s so freak’n hilarious.

      • David Jr.

        You don’t want to BoLieve in the Shield.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Looks like we’re getting the breaking news first!!

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

    Off to write Raw!

    • Mike McCarthy

      See ya!

    • Paul Jameson

      good luck!

  • Danny Philippi

    Timer is set!

  • K!NG

    Bow down to the king of 20 minute promo’s

    • Mike McCarthy

      Only did 7 minutes last week, Batista quitting made him too sad to pull through another 13 minutes.

    • Paul Jameson

      takes a K!NG to know a king

      • Seth

        Jerry Lawler eliminated from the Rumble before finishing that line…one of my fondest memories ever as a kid.

  • Paul Jameson

    guys….ah….I love…ah……HHH’s….ah…..promos…..ah. lol

  • Paul Jameson

    lol “He’s an actor…..He’s an actor”

  • Xavier

    I don’t know why people hate on Triple H and Steph’s promos. They’ve been on point since this whole Authority angle kicked off

    • David Jr.

      Some people just hate Triple H. I don’t but there are people who do. Same goes with Stephanie McMahon.

      • Xavier

        Then they are watching the wrong show then

        • David Jr.

          I agree. But you know they exist, they think whatever Triple H does, he’s burying someone.

          • Xavier

            Those are the worst types of fans

          • David Jr.

            Yep, they are the same people who say John Cena can’t wrestle. Despite having the hour match against HBK, pick a match against CM Punk, Damien Sandow’s cash in, etc.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, there is an official video from the doctor. :(

  • Mike McCarthy

    Ends at 64 days.

  • Andrew

    hey guys

    • Paul Jameson

      what up

      • Andrew

        not much just chillin whats up

    • Xavier

      Is this Andrew Daz?

      • Andrew

        haha

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait a second guys… He isn’t there, so he would still have the titles at his home… He can pull a Voldemort!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      there’s your answer

      • Jesse Sherwood

        BAKA!

  • James Larochelle

    Greetings Programs.

  • K!NG

    Do it for mexico Alberto

  • Mike McCarthy

    NOOOOOOO NOT ORTON DAMNIT

  • CJ Blaze

    Seriously, Orton?

    • Paul Jameson

      it coulda been Bluetista

    • Seth

      Well…he didn’t ever get his rematch.

      • CJ Blaze

        Well at this point, forget it! Haha

  • Xavier

    So was the Authority right all along?

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

    I bet two people will pull down a belt

  • stoney

    Juan Bland Latino in the MITB match. As long as he doesn’t win.

  • Xavier

    Triple H and Steph going in

  • Xavier

    Am I the only one who wasn’t shocked by Seth turning on The Shield? They teased this exact same angle a few months ago when he walked out on them.

    • K!NG

      I was shocked more shocked that he turned on them for a group of guys they just beat. but i loved every bit of it.

  • Andrew

    since he’s getting stripped im not sure if daniel bryan will get the wwe world heavyweight title back i definately want him to but not sure if they will

  • Paul Jameson

    oh no…Cena and Ambrose and Reigns….. v Wyatts

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I was just thinking the same thing.

    • Andrew

      i hope not

    • John

      The Cena / Wyatt program is finished. They aren’t going to go back to it now.

      • Paul Jameson

        as true as that may be, who else would be their go to face in creative?!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sadly, with the way things are falling apart at the seems in WWE, I can see this being a way to continue the feud for a bit to help balance things.

  • Mike McCarthy

    PLEASE BRING BACK JOHN MORRISON

    • CJ Blaze

      YES

    • Paul Jameson

      Prince of Parkour!

    • David Jr.

      I’d rather they bring back Johnny Nitro.

      • Mike McCarthy

        THE GURU OF GREATNESS ISN’T GREAT ENOUGH FOR YOU!?!?!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Woah only a 12 min HHH promo?

    • Paul Jameson

      technically 4 of that was Steph’s

  • Scott

    Who do you think will be their partner???

    • Paul Jameson

      Cena….sadly.

    • Xavier

      Probably Cena

    • K!NG

      JTG

      • Paul Jameson

        cause he got that money money…yeah yeah….

    • Scott

      Ziggler or Sandow would be epic! Especially if Sandow goes shoot style……

    • Jesse Sherwood

      So far, odds are at 10/9 odds Cena. 450/1 for any other superstar.

      • David Jr.

        I’ll take the field.

        • Paul Jameson

          at this point, I’d even add the TNA roster to make it anyone other than supercena

      • Roger C.

        It’s gonna be CM Punk. Just watch

        • Jesse Sherwood

          That is at 20,000/1 odds.

          • Mike McCarthy

            so if I give you a dollar, and Punk returns….you’ll owe me $20,000!?!!?!?!?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yes, but you have to find a way to get me a dollar… :)

          • Seth

            Honestly. I have a better chance of hitting the lottery and being struck by lightning than Punk being the mystery partner.

          • David Jr.

            I think the Voldermort from Harry Potter would have better odds of showing up.

  • Seth

    Okay. Sheamus vs Barrett. I enjoy a good old fashioned mean guy match. This’ll be fun.

  • K!NG

    Lets go Sheamus

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ok, that was a great PSA. Titus with kids is cute!

    • Xavier

      I really wish they would do something with Titus.

      • Seth

        Do something where they allow the man to express that personality because that’s his greatest asset. He’ll get over with that.

    • James Larochelle

      Titus has great charisma. He should go places.

  • Bryan

    Who are you guys calling for the shield’s mystery partner?

    • Paul Jameson

      I want Magneto…but it’ll be supercena

    • K!NG

      Kurgan

      • Seth

        KURGAN ALWAYS WINS! *Insert music here*

    • James Larochelle

      It’d be nice to see a call up.

    • Scott

      Sandow would be awesome! Especially if he goes back to a pipebombish gimmick….

  • Scott

    What if the entire locker room comes out to tag with The Shield?

  • Paul Jameson

    Ok….can we get a BIG SHOW chant as the partner please!

    • Mike McCarthy

      This is about the usual time they bring him back to relevance.

  • Seth

    FELLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BNB gets a bigger pop than Sheamus!

    • Bryan

      Im sure he will get a face turn at some point. He is definitely over.

  • Paul Jameson

    oh wow, my feed cut out a bit and it looked like BNB had tassle on his chest….

  • ldb

    Nice job BNB. He got Demolition to put some spikes on his cape.

  • Gesus Oliver

    I thought we just saw this match but realized it was on smackdown and no one watches it

  • CJ Blaze

    I love qualifying matches

  • Mike McCarthy

    Back to my original MitB prediction. One match, two winners. Split the titles.

    • Paul Jameson

      Each grabbing a belt….yeah I could see that lazy booking taking place since they won’t want to make just one champ.

  • Seth

    I think BNB has a main event level styled promo and delivery with how he just transforms himself into Bad News Barrett.

  • Mike McCarthy

    It would be awesome if BNB won MitB

    • CJ Blaze

      yes it would!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ok… WE KNOW THAT BRYAN IS STIPPED! SHUT UP ABOUT IT ANNOUNCE!

    • Paul Jameson

      Vinnie mac is in their ear, they will say it atleast 50 more times tonight.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Got to love the Magic Headsets…

    • James Larochelle

      But it’s earth shattering news…

    • Seth

      Can Regal come in and stretch the announcers and then take over the duties so we can at least have someone helping to get over what’s going on in the ring? Please?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        As long as A-Ry joins him!

        • Paul Jameson

          awww, poor a-ry.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I love A-Ry on commentary!

          • Paul Jameson

            well yes, but he’s just…so unappreciated.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I think if WWE hadn’t paired him with The Miz and tried to force him to the main roster as quickly as they did, he could have had a solid midcard career, maybe even a World Title reign. But he has truly found a home on announce.

          • David Jr.

            NXT has the best commentary of any show including the other one on Thursday, yes it’s by default but I actually enjoy listening to William Regal, Alex Riley and Rene Young. Tom Phillips and Jason Albert are fine. The only I don’t really care for is Byron Saxton.

  • ldb

    are they chanting for barrett?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yes!

      • ldb

        Awesome!

    • Paul Jameson

      well if they aren’t they surely don’t know how to spell Sheamus.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think it’s time to recognize that Bad News Barrett has earned and is ready for a main event push.

    • Xavier

      I’d have no problem with him going over at MITB

    • Paul Jameson

      I enjoy a slow build. This has been great time for him to play with his character and just be himself too.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Two** but since when does counting matter.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Patience, like when Barrett had to wait for his main event push because they decided to form The Corre….and never getting it but still not complaining for the three years he’s been with the company since then.

  • Scott

    I really like the Bad News Barrett gimmick!

  • Paul Jameson

    Sheamo…I’m afraid I have some bad news…..

  • Mike McCarthy

    In the age of Zack Ryder and Dolph Ziggler, WWE needs to appreciate how patient Bad News Barrett has been with the progression of his character.

    • Paul Jameson

      how are you sure they aren’t?! They did put the title on him which has to show some confidence.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I didn’t say that they didn’t, I’m saying that it’s something they should be doing. I don’t work for the WWE so I don’t know whether they are or not.

        • Paul Jameson

          true, but I’m just saying, I would rather them take time than push too fast and burn out.

        • Mike McCarthy

          Because I pay for a WNW Premium subscription. Guess you forgot that this was a news website rather than a troll playground.

  • K!NG

    taking one from JBL here…. Sheamus wrestles like he is in someone else’s body

    • Paul Jameson

      “wha ya mean by tha fella?!”

  • Danny Philippi

    I have a BAD feeling tonight is looking like last week’s Raw so far. Hope THEY have a LeBronisque performance a la Game 2 instead of Game 1

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And with a healthy James, the Heat barely beat the Spurs. The better team shall prevail. Spurs in 6.

  • Tom Mayer

    So, who is going to renew their wwe network in August?

  • Seth

    Okay drinking game time. Take a shot every time they mention the ‘earth shattering’ news of Daniel Bryan being stripped of the gold.

    • Paul Jameson

      I tried that already…..the screen is going blurry….

      • Seth

        My plan is already working. :P

    • David Jr.

      So I’ll be talking to a bunch of drunks by the end of the night.

      • Paul Jameson

        and getting a bunch of “o3wiu4qgj.asErgfhli;srhgaerg” comments

      • Seth

        Hehehe…

    • K!NG

      I tried the royal rumble drinking game…. take a shot anytime someone is thrown over the top rope

  • Paul Jameson

    Hey Jesse…..the news tonight is there will be a New WWE World Heavyweight champion at the PPV and that DB was stripped of the title in absentia. Did you know that!? lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      *DDTs Paul onto a barbwire wrapped steel chair*

      • Paul Jameson

        while that hurt…..I still….wait listening to cole……yup the news tonight is there will be a New WWE World Heavyweight champion
        at the PPV and that DB was stripped of the title in absentia.

    • Seth

      You mentioned it…TAKE ANOTHER SHOT!

  • Tom Mayer

    Hey guys, what’s up with Bryan and the championship?

    • Paul Jameson

      oh you didn’t hear?! the news tonight is there will be a New WWE World Heavyweight champion
      at the PPV and that DB was stripped of the title in absentia…..its “earth shattering”

      • Tom Mayer

        Are you sure? They better confirm it on tv soon

  • Xavier

    Sheamus is a damn good worker. Very underrated. He’s had solid matches with just about everyone

    • Paul Jameson

      I’ve been high up on his in ring work for a while now, just wish he was used better than the loveable Irish drinking brawler….

    • Tom Mayer

      I agree that nap did wonders for a fella

      • Xavier

        Lol

    • David Jr.

      I agree, also Sheamus and Bad News Barrett have a great chemistry they always have great matches together.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Ever since Sheamus turned face he’s been a backbone of WWE’s upper mid-card.

      • Xavier

        Agreed

    • K!NG

      Sheamus is my favorite since hbk left

  • Xavier

    Really good match here

    • Mike McCarthy

      Crowd loving it too.

  • Paul Jameson

    i smell bull…….hammer

    • Tom Mayer

      What does it smell like?

      • Paul Jameson

        sweaty elbow

  • Scott

    Awesome match!!!!

  • Seth

    Sheamus and Barrett can wrestle each other every show for all I care. I’ll enjoy it every time.

    • Tom Mayer

      With how shallow the main roster is becoming, you might soon :p

      • Seth

        It’s a good wrestling match that becomes really really really good if you give them enough time. I won’t complain about that.

  • Paul Jameson

    wicked headbutt!!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Brogue kick!!

  • K!NG

    Awesome

  • Paul Jameson

    wow, powerful brogue kick…and I’m 1 for 1

  • CJ Blaze

    Wow I was actually expecting BNB

    • James Larochelle

      Sheamus made sense to have an early face with the two heels.

      • CJ Blaze

        True, true

    • ldb

      I was too. But great match

  • Xavier

    Great opener. Kudos to Sheamus and BNB

  • ldb

    Now that looks like a strong US title holder

    • Paul Jameson

      right?!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Great match here, regardless of end result.

  • Danny Philippi

    For every two heels in MitB, one face enters.

    • David F

      Sheamus is stale face at this point. BnB and Ziggy should be in MITB not ADBoring and stale Sheamus

  • Scott

    I think Sheamus is concussed

    • Paul Jameson

      i agree, that headbutt for one looked rough. of course he could just be selling.

      • Scott

        He reached for the belt a mile away…..if he is selling then he deserves an Oscar

        • Paul Jameson

          hey….we all grab at the gold when we see it, right?!

  • Bryan

    What a match!

  • Andrew

    whos bray going after next????

    • Paul Jameson

      the shield…..well for tonight….

  • Seth

    Luke Harper is phenomenal every chance he gets when he can speak or do something in the ring.

  • Paul Jameson

    You know…Miz rejoined the road this past weekend, I really really hope he doesn’t return to help the shield.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I’d rather see him in MitB.

      • Paul Jameson

        this I can see….sneaking in or getting in through a qualifier. He doesn’t have to be a face til his movie comes out.

    • James Larochelle

      Not awesome?

    • Tom Mayer

      Believe in the….aweeeeeesssssooommmeewe

    • ldb

      amen on that. They need somebody good. Miz has fell hard. From Wrestlemania headliner

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Guys, I have to remind everyone that inflammatory statements at other users for the sake of being rude or nasty are NOT permitted. You will be banned for it. Consider this the warning.

    • Paul Jameson

      Can I flame superstars?! Cause I mean….he’s the Miz…but he isn’t awesome….

      • Tom Mayer

        His marriage to maryse disagrees with you

        • Paul Jameson

          speaking of Maryse…I wouldn’t mind a Maryse versus Lana match.

  • Danny Philippi

    Stanley Cup Final Update:

  • Mike McCarthy

    If there’s only gonna be one ladder match they need to have more participants than the last few years.

    • Xavier

      Why? I think 8 is enough

    • David F

      I have feeling there will be two with other one being for contract. you have to have contract storyline

    • Paul Jameson

      they are having 8 it looks like.

  • Danny Philippi

    Stanley Cup Final Update:
    Tied 0-0 with just over 8:00 left in the first period.

  • Xavier

    Lena and those legs, can i get a AMEN?

    • Andrew

      AMEN

    • Paul Jameson

      Hallelujah and Amen…..

    • ldb

      AMEN!

    • Seth

      Thank you God and A-*BLEEP*IN-MEN!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Oh my brother… TESTIFY!

  • ldb

    Who’s doing the quick job tonight.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Xavier Woods?

      • ldb

        ain’t that getting old Jesse. Man somebody step up and squash this and then take Lana.

    • Paul Jameson

      Xavier Woods….or r Truth.

    • Xavier

      Darren YOung

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Out for at least 3 more months due to injury

    • James Larochelle

      I’m going off the board here with Zack Ryder

      • David Jr.

        It seems like you are right.

        • James Larochelle

          Woot! Go me!

    • Mike McCarthy

      The Miz.

  • James Larochelle

    Oh joy….Rusev.

  • Mike McCarthy

    If Lana keeps burying Obama then she might accidentally get turned face…

    • Tom Mayer

      Ohhh politics

  • Paul Jameson

    please show Putin in a Rocky esqu montage!!!

    • David Jr.

      And the guy who finally beats Rusev to train in the Russian winter.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I have to admit, that is a sad workout.

  • Seth

    Putin in that picture looks like he was hanging out with the Hardyz. Just saying.

  • Paul Jameson

    Miz and Maryse versus Rusev and Lana….PLEASE!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Rusev Botchka

    • Paul Jameson

      see I always thought he was just saying his name and asking for a drink. “Rusev Vodka”

      • Mike McCarthy

        No, he’s apologizing in advance for botches.

  • Danny Philippi

    Worst. Segment. So Far.

    • ldb

      Best pairing though. The left and right legs of Lana.

      • Xavier

        Jesse, this is the post of the night

  • Dustyn

    Don’t hit her with the flag Rusev!

  • Seth

    Rusev please learn how to wave the flag or wave the flag and not have to mess with your medal every 20 seconds…its driving me batty!

  • Paul Jameson

    Oh poor Ryder…..

  • Paul Jameson

    Ryder better call Wolverine.

  • BlazeKing

    If somebody in gorilla position is watching this chat, I hope they tip Vince out of his chair for me over this Rusev gimmick. I hate it. It’s so damn cheesy and stale. He was better with the “Bulgarian Brute” moniker.

  • K!NG

    Ryder Crush

  • Danny Philippi

    Someone research Ryder’s last TV win. Please?

    • Paul Jameson

      Superstars on November 13 2013 versus Fandango

    • Jesse Sherwood

      November 28, 2013 – Superstars: Zack Ryder defeated Fandango w Summer Rae.

      • Paul Jameson

        thanks, i guessed the day, i just remember the month.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ryder? He has new gear. I thought it was someone from NXT!

  • Bryan

    Rusev = the next Lord Tensai

    At least they didnt have him squash Cena in his first match.

  • Andrew

    i say mark henry comes after the match my predicition

  • Seth

    Ryder so had the look of ‘I would rather be anywhere but here’ there.

  • Guest

    I think she’d be in control in the bedroom…. ; )

  • Paul Jameson

    We want angle……..we want angle……

    • David Jr.

      Eric Angle?

    • Danny Philippi

      Please no. He’s broken goods.

      • Paul Jameson

        he may be broken goods, but I’d rather him break the rest of his goods getting rid of Rusev.

  • Scott

    God could they shove the Russian thing down our throats any more?

    • ldb

      Don’t say that…..Vince can hear you.

    • James Larochelle

      They could add a bear on a unicycle…or would that infringe on Adam Rose’s gimmick?

    • Paul Jameson

      actually yes. I’m glad they at least got it over early tonight.

    • Scott

      Why dont they just go ahead and bring out Dolph Lundgren as Ivan Drago, Nikolai Volkoff, and Kozlov?

  • Taylor

    Well this title match at MITB is snooze fest so far

    • ldb

      You are not entertained at the thought of Alberto Del Riiiiii……sorry just can’t finish that.

      • Paul Jameson

        awwww I miss Ricardo…makes me wanna hit the SAP button on the PPVs to hear his commentary.

  • BlackLotus

    Rusev=Abyss 2.0 and the russian gimmick is just not working. I guess WWE didnt look at how badly things went with Mr Kozlov.

    • BlazeKing

      Kozlov’s gimmick was way better than this one which is similar to Nikolai Volkoff’s.

  • Danny Philippi

    Sad to see Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final relegated to NBCSN. Had to search for it on TV Guide channel. NHL still way behind the NFL and NBA.

    • Paul Jameson

      sadly NHL gets too regional.

      • David Jr.

        NBA is still way behind the NFL in the USA.

  • James Larochelle

    With the heavy brass in Rusev’s theme music I expect to see a parade of hippos walking to the ring.

  • Xavier

    I was just thinking, and I know this is random but I think creative should of built up Bray more before feuding with Cena. They should of had him feud with some midcard and upper midcard faces and successfully turn them heel before having him turn his attention to Cena.

    • Paul Jameson

      why? I thought the program brought him up well. I can’t think of anyone else they could have used in place of Cena. Bray has had some golden stuff. Who would you have used?

      • Xavier

        I enjoyed the feud. Don’t get me wrong but nobody with half a brain thought Cena was really gonna go heel. Now if Bray had feuded with a few faces before targeting Cena the feud could of been even that much better. Long term build for a big time feud is all

      • BlazeKing

        Big E.

    • BlazeKing

      Same thing I said. They pandered to the people chanting “Cena Sucks” and almost made Bray peak way too early.

      • Xavier

        Listening to the fans 90 percent of the time is usually a bad thing. If WWE listened to smarks all the time Vince would be bankrupt right now

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Golden Truth! I can dig this team!

    • Paul Jameson

      Tell me you didn’t just say that……

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Shucky Ducky Quack Quack!

        • Paul Jameson

          awww its on now can you dig that….

          • Jesse Sherwood

            SUCKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!

    • James Larochelle

      Too bad they’re guaranteed to lose.

  • K!NG

    K-kwik!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Get rowdy!

      • K!NG

        i actually liked that gimmick and song lol

  • ldb

    Is this the night Goldust wins without his brother?

    • Mike McCarthy

      nope.

      • ldb

        just checking.

        • Paul Jameson

          I just hope its the night Cody goes cra-cra on goldie.

  • Danny Philippi

    I Love to Ride My Rybaxycle. I love to ride my rybike.

  • Danny Philippi

    WE Want Lesnar chants I hear?

  • Scott

    Was that We Want Lesnar?

    • Paul Jameson

      yup

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye. They want anyone other than Ryback!

  • CJ Blaze

    Wow

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I will not comment on this….

    • David Jr.

      I won’t either.

    • Paul Jameson

      awwww you HAVE to…c’mon son…

  • ldb

    Damn. Milk does a body good.!

  • Paul Jameson

    Summer thought Layla needed a little Vitamin D tonight….

  • Danny Philippi

    B*itchfight!

  • Mike McCarthy

    ….that was kinda awesome…..

  • Seth

    My thought on this one was…okay…who am I supposed to boo and who am I supposed to cheer because that wasn’t…babyface behavior!

    • Mike McCarthy

      Summer Rae is the face.

      • Seth

        I know it was a joke. Don’t get me wrong…I enjoyed that…but well that wasn’t very babyface like!

        • Paul Jameson

          Of course it was…remember…Angle and the Milk Truck?!?!

          • Seth

            I kind’a also remember when Eugene poured milk all over Regal and Maria after they won the tag belts. That was awesome.

          • David Jr.

            Al Snow poured Milk over Mick Foley after Al Snow and Mick Foley won the Tag Team Titles.

  • BlazeKing

    I just had some nasty thoughts of Layla, hehe…

    • Seth

      The thoughts projected by BlazeKing are rated M for Mature.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sorry, they got hit by the dreaded AO rating.

  • Andrew

    so summer rae is the baby face of this feud? idk lol

    • Paul Jameson

      that will set up a certain someone’s wish on this board to have Summer Rae and Ziggler together.

      • CJ Blaze

        It happened at the live event I went to, and it should also happen on TV! Haha

        • Paul Jameson

          the milk thing?!? lol

          • CJ Blaze

            No Summer and Ziggler lol

          • Paul Jameson

            i figured…I’m just like….you saw a Milk bath at a live show?! how nice!

          • CJ Blaze

            Nothing that exciting happened really haha

          • Mike McCarthy

            No, Summer & Dolph teaming up.

      • Mike McCarthy

        ….is it Jesse?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          No, but I like the idea!

    • James Larochelle

      Seems like anybody on Total Divas has to be a face even when they were brought in to be heels.

    • David Jr.

      Can’t have a WWE studios movie coming out with a heel in it, unless they play a bad guy in the movie like Hornswoggle.

  • Danny Philippi

    Stanley Cup Final Update:
    Jeff Carter scores with 0:00.4 seconds left. Kings up 1-0 in the first intermission.

  • rschell21

    Well Paul heyman ought to get a pretty good cheer tonight when I mentions the streaks being broken by lesnar

  • Scott

    How epic would it be if “he who shall not be named” joined The Shield tonight? Would love to see “you know who” vs Rollins again.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      20,000/1 odds!

      • Mike McCarthy

        I mailed 100 pennies to you.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          They have to arrive by match time! And how do you know where I live…?

          • Mike McCarthy

            I’m camped out across the street.

  • Paul Jameson

    RUN 3MB

  • K!NG

    Joey mercury is behind them

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sierra
    Hotel
    India
    Echo
    Lima
    Delta
    SHIELD!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      this has been long overdue

  • Mike McCarthy

    Hornswoggle runs out and saves the day.

    • Paul Jameson

      was sooo just typing this! ftw!

  • Seth

    Its 2 on 2. Jinder doesn’t count as a wrestler!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Don’t Hinder Jinder!

  • Seth

    I love babyface Ambrose where he just flings his body like he doesn’t give a damn. So entertaining to watch.

  • Xavier

    That spear is still sick as s***

  • Paul Jameson

    Ok now, that was a big miscue productionwise.

  • CJ Blaze

    Ambrose trying to calm down cracks me up

  • Danny Philippi

    This segment is a complete cluster you know what. In a positive light.

  • Scott

    Breathe Dean breathe! Lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ambrose is GOLD!

  • Paul Jameson

    ok I’m secure enough in myself to say, I could watch Ambrose’s reactions and mannerisms all night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ambrose is a sexy beast!

  • Xavier

    The Shield is/was as every bit as good as The Von Erichs, Freebirds, DX and NWO. Yeah that’s right, I said it.

    • Seth

      The Shield remind me a bit of the Von Erichs in a way. Wild, crazy, and don’t care what it takes just so they get the job done.

    • Paul Jameson

      of course, no doubt

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I can agree. One of the top 3 man factions ever!

      • David Jr.

        Hey don’t forget the Brood, well at least according to WWE Countdown on the Network.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          BAKA!

          • David Jr.

            You don’t think the Brood is better than the NWO or the 4 Horseman, or every group in the history of wrestling besides DX?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Oh… I want to punch the creative member who did that list. With my fist. Wrapped in tape. Covered in rusty nails. Interlaced with barbwire. Coated in salt and Lemon juice.

          • David Jr.

            Isn’t it voted on by the fans?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Sadly, yes. But The Brood shouldn’t have even been on the vote.

          • David Jr.

            When you let everyone vote, you get people who don’t know the history. That’s why lists voted on by people isn’t good.

          • Michael

            It was for their intro and music.

    • Scott

      Absolutely!!!!

  • Scott

    Ambroses heartbeat picked up by the mic!!! LOVE IT!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    Well this is graphic

    • Paul Jameson

      and epic

  • Bryan

    Ambrose’s promo = WOW!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ambrose is getting into Foley and Pillman levels of awesomeness on this promo!

    • David F

      and little of Jake the Snake too

  • Mike McCarthy

    Great promo here.

  • Xavier

    Ambrose going in

  • Paul Jameson

    i wanna hear more Uncle Ambrose….this is best bedtime story ever!

  • Seth

    I think THIS was the Dean Ambrose a ton of us were waiting for whenever he picks up the mic and goes unhinged.

  • ldb

    Ambrose is a flithy animal!

  • Xavier

    LMAO @piss in the wind

  • CJ Blaze

    Finally the world is able to see how awesome Ambrose is on the mic. Look his promos up from FCW, good stuff!

  • Paul Jameson

    ……that probably sounded better in your head Reigns…..”the ass of the company”….

    • Seth

      His opening line(that Jesse just put up there) was great. Then it kind’a teetered down a little bit for me slightly. He’s getting better on the microphone though. Substantially better.

      • Paul Jameson

        oh definitely…I just…..think he rolled with something that might needed a little tweaking at the end. One of those…”I should say this out loud first to see if I’m saying exactly what I think I’m saying” things…

        • Seth

          It just wasn’t the right line for the tone of the promo especially when Ambrose graphically threatened to assault Rollins.

  • Scott

    Reigns stepping it up on the mic!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t p*** in the wind, and you don’t stab your brothers in the back!” A-Effing-MEN!

  • ldb

    Love ” I wanna hear Triple H’s words coming out of your mouth.”

  • rschell21

    Roman learned to talk on the mic a little

  • Scott

    You can tell Reigns has a bit of influence on the mic from Uncle Rocky

    • Scott

      Or cousin Rocky…I forget

  • Paul Jameson

    those promos worked because you could tell that was both people just being themselves on the mike.

  • Danny Philippi

    NXT Superstars should have their notebooks filled now by those promos.

  • BlazeKing

    Seth broke his “silence” last Friday…

    • Mike McCarthy

      Yes but he explained nothing.

      • BlazeKing

        Poor choice of words from the production crew saying he’s breaking his silence tonight.

        • Paul Jameson

          yeah I said the same thing earlier tonight during the preshow when that was first told to happen……sometimes they don’t realize silence is broken once spoken…

    • James Larochelle

      On Friday he basically said “Storylines go nowhere on Friday nights!”

  • David F

    Rollins Walder Freyd the Shield.

  • CJ Blaze

    I don’t know if I can watch this week’s Legends’ House…

  • rschell21

    I just have this feeling that Ambrose is gonna walk out on reigns and cena in the tag match tonight

    • Scott

      I doubt it….

    • Scott

      I would expect that at a PPV

    • Paul Jameson

      while i applaud your thinking this idea, i don’t see them wanting to try and push all 3 at the same time. Safer play is to keep Reigns and ambrose together for a little while.

  • Mike McCarthy

    If we’re gonna talk about CM Punk possibly teaming with Ambrose & Reigns, then we gotta talk about Sting…

    • Paul Jameson

      another great 20,000/1 shot, but one i’d be more inclined to get behind!

      • David F

        Sami Zayn!!

      • Mike McCarthy

        Sting is old, having two partners to help carry him in the ring would be a lot of help for him.

        • Paul Jameson

          true, but I’m such a Sting fan that in my own dilusions I feel Sting can go partner or not. I know that’s messed up, but he’s on my Rushmore…what can I do…

          • Mike McCarthy

            Sting could barely go at Bound for Glory, and even more time has passed since then

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Actually at 15,000/1 due to thee fact he is at least talking to WWE.

  • James Larochelle

    Wha?

  • Paul Jameson

    Wow…Layla looks….sour

    • Seth

      No crying over spoiled milk…oh wait Fandango’s run is beyond the spoiled stage.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nice Curtis reference.

  • Dustyn

    Oh-no!

  • CJ Blaze

    Oh brother..

  • Xavier

    Did Sandow sleep with Steph or something?

  • Paul Jameson

    BURN MY EYES

  • Jesse Sherwood

    OH EFF… Sandow has hit a new low…

  • James Larochelle

    O-M-G

  • Andrew

    you got to be kidding me

  • Seth

    WHY GOD WHY!? MOTHER*BEEP* *BEEP* *BEEP* SON OF A…NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • K!NG

    Sandow has set the new level of rockbottom

    • Michael

      But he has the convent TV time.

  • CJ Blaze

    I woulda quit my job at this point

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’d like to point out that I predicted that CM Punk wouldn’t return until after the Blackhawks were eliminated from the playoffs….this is the first opportunity for a return since they were eliminated.

    • David F

      dont remind of hawks. I just got over it lol

    • Paul Jameson

      wouldn’t he get more from a return at a PPV?!

  • Xavier

    Seriously though, Sandow has too be in the doghouse about something.

    • Seth

      This is beyond the doghouse. This is the sh*thouse.

  • Danny Philippi

    THE USOS DESERVE BETTER. Maybe THEY can call Bad Influence.

  • Paul Jameson

    Seriously….burn my eyes now!!!

  • rschell21

    Well that gives a whole new meaning to in the dog house

  • Mike McCarthy

    Sandango.

    • Paul Jameson

      Fandow?

  • ldb

    Just remember losing in a great match to Cena never hurt anyone.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Breaking News, Jack Swagger will face Santino Marella tonight.

  • Guest

    BOlieve in the Shield

  • David Jr.

    Damien Sandow looks like Jim Carrey as Ace Ventura

    • Scott

      Lets see that in instant replay! Now in super slow mo!

  • Paul Jameson

    And Layla is just…..milking it…

    • Seth

      That’s the breast comment you can make in this situation.

      • Paul Jameson

        that was an udderly bad joke

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Let’s just moove on.

          • Paul Jameson

            nothing to….spoil….here

        • Seth

          Lets just nip it in the butt and move on.

      • Scott

        Hahahahahaha!!!

  • Seth

    All four talents deserve better than to have the match revolve around being an unfunny, horrendous joke.

  • rschell21

    Sandow now has a worse gimmick than Eugene did

    • Mike McCarthy

      But not as bad as Charlie Haas.

      • ldb

        I liked Charlie the Hitman Hass

    • K!NG

      eugene actually won

  • James Larochelle

    I guess Sandow won’t be the Shield’s surprise partner

    • Scott

      Nope….its so sad cause Sandow is a good worker and really good on the mic too

  • Paul Jameson

    Wasn’t Sandow originally here to help educate the Unwashed Masses?! Poor fella….

    • CJ Blaze

      Maybe when WWE decides to push him again, they will claim he was brainwashed or something

      • Paul Jameson

        What i wouldn’t give for him to pipebomb on the ramp.

        • Scott

          I know right!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And now he wears an outfit that makes him look unwashed…

  • James Larochelle

    2-0 Kings

    • Danny Philippi

      Quick, get the brooms.

  • Danny Philippi

    This Raw episode has me wondering “How is TNA Slammiversary going to bottom this?”

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Two words: MVP wins.

      • CJ Blaze

        NO, please, just no

        • Paul Jameson

          Jeff Jerrett shows up and wins.

          • CJ Blaze

            (almost) anything is better than MVP winning

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That would actually make sense, because JJ could take the title and kill the company.

      • David Jr.

        Isn’t MVP hurt? Though knowing TNA, MVP will make Eric Young fight Kenny King first, then Bobby Lashley. Then MVP and when MVP vs. Eric Young match starts, EC III attacks Eric Young and MVP pins him without ever fighting. ECIII joins MVP’s group for no reason and MVP is now the TNA champion.

    • ldb

      Never doubt Dixie!

    • Seth

      *Grabs Evoker* ORPHEUS! *Uses Agi on TNA’s business*

      • Jesse Sherwood

        *Crushes The Fool card* MEGIDOLAON!

        • Seth

          *Does 400 damage*

          Fuuka: *Gasp!* I sense Death!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Elizabeth appears behind TNA*
            TNA can get stuffed!
            *Erases TNA from the annuls of history and stores them in her book for her own pleasure*

  • Mr.V

    What sucks is the fan support sandow gets as fans support him may be misinterpreted as support for this ridiculousness

  • James Larochelle

    That is one damp t-shirt

    • Paul Jameson

      I bolieve so

    • CJ Blaze

      Just noticed that.. weird

  • Scott

    Pee break…sorry cant take Dallas seriously

  • rschell21

    Xavier looks like he put on some muscle

    • Paul Jameson

      and an extra layer of awesome hair!

    • Xavier

      Well I have been working out a lot lately

      • Seth

        What’s the secrets to that afro?

  • Paul Jameson

    and here comes the mute button….

  • Danny Philippi

    The only place that Bo will get massive pop is at Gainesville, Florida.

    • Paul Jameson

      why, will Tim Tebow be there?

  • Paul Jameson

    ok he put the mic down….I can unmute now

  • Scott

    Bo Dallas……WWEs Justin Beiber

  • Bryan

    I must be the only one that loves the Bo Dallas gimmick.

    • David Jr.

      Nope, I like him too.

  • James Larochelle

    The crowd goes mild

  • Paul Jameson

    and again he hits the Stratusfaction.

    • Seth

      Trish just vomited.

      • Paul Jameson

        nah, she had the baby by now.

  • Taylor

    Bo Dallas needs a better finisher

    • Paul Jameson

      agreed….so do Spike Dudley and Trish Stratus agree too

  • Seth

    ‘He likes people touching him!’–JBL

    Holy TMI batman.

  • ldb

    what if Reigns just speared him out of his shoes as he rounds the ring?

    • CJ Blaze

      YES

      • Paul Jameson

        then picks him up and does it again……and again……and again….

    • Mike McCarthy

      That would be one of the greatest moments in Raw history.

  • Danny Philippi

    Minneapolis is reacting to Raw like death.

    • Paul Jameson

      its been an hour and a half and no talk of Brock….I’d be dead too.

    • Seth

      Bo Dallas is a fate worse than death.

  • Taylor

    Please dont put RVD in this MITB match. Dear God please dont do it

    • ldb

      I don’t think they will. I think he’s relegated to jobbing now.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Second week in a row they killed the audience after a big match in the 2nd segment.

  • Danny Philippi

    WWE Raw is channeling its inner Thunder.

    • Paul Jameson

      ouch, that’s low, its been a little better than Thunder

      • Paul Jameson

        how bout Sunday night heat?!

      • Danny Philippi

        How long have you watched Raw? For me, it’s been since ’95.

        • Paul Jameson

          I have seen every Raw since the first.

        • David Jr.

          I’ve been watching since episode 1.

    • Seth

      WWE RAW is channeling the sucktitude that the Lakers brought out every day under DiAntoni…

      • Paul Jameson

        ouch, you can’t put DiAntoni and Lakers in the same sentence…..there are lawyers looking for that right now, apparently its forbidden.

        • Seth

          This is what happens when you’re a suffering Lakers fan AND have to see Bo Dallas wrestle.

          • David F

            Its almost as bad as Bears 2013 Defense

          • Seth

            *Redskins season

          • David F

            the Knicks

        • Andrew

          thank you lol im a big lakers fan and that just not a good mix

  • Mike McCarthy

    A lot of NEWZ sites are reporting that Ric Flair is set to return to manage The Miz when he returns.

    • Xavier

      I really hope not. The Miz doesn’t need help, even if it’s from Flair. Miz proved that he could get over by himself. All they need to do is turn Miz heel again and give him a decent push. Miz is a top heel talent

    • Paul Jameson

      i hope not. I need my Ziggler mentored by Flair fix.

  • K!NG

    too bad he couldnt beat stephen neal or else minnesota would of won a national championship

  • Paul Jameson

    haha SWERVE

  • Mike McCarthy

    I predicted RVD but I’m hoping they put Cesaro over here.

    • Paul Jameson

      i did the same, but sadly I don’t want RVD anywhere near the MitB for the title.

      • K!NG

        na im all for RVD being in a ladder match

        • Seth

          I’m also all for Cesaro throwing people around using the ladder.

          • Paul Jameson

            swing the ladder through everyone?!

          • Seth

            That’s gory and awesome. Sorry I’ve been thinking kind’a gory ever since Ambrose’s promo…

  • Seth

    Heel Paul Heyman is awesome to watch go to work.

  • Seth

    Rob and Cesaro more often than not are clunky together. Hope for the best but prepare for some clunkyness.

  • Xavier

    RVD needs to go ahead and call it a career

  • Paul Jameson

    I hope this show doesn’t end with someone climbing a ladder and claiming the titles.

  • Taylor

    So who rounds this thing out? Cesaro, Cena, Wyatt, Reigns is my guess. Does Brock show up and shock us all as the last entrant in MITB?

  • CJ Blaze

    I’m not against haven’t established talent in this match as it is for the top title(s) in the company, but I hope a high-flyer or someone like Rollins gets put in. MITB Ladder matches just aren’t the same without a little bit of flyin’ people

  • Mike McCarthy

    Both Suits AND Graceland come back on Wednesday, great week for USA Network fans.

  • Danny Philippi

    We want Lesnar chants, again.

  • Xavier

    If you can’t put together a good match with Cesaro then you shouldn’t be on the roster

    • David Jr.

      age, MJ and hardcore style has finally caught up to RVD.

      • Xavier

        Honestly, I always felt RVD was a bit overrated. He’s not good on the mic, he’s charisma is so-so. Wasn’t a very good heel and I always felt he was a good spot monkey as opposed to a great wrestler. Oh and outside the ring he was completely unreliable

        • David Jr.

          I can agree, his run with the WCW-ECW alliance, he didn’t even try to be a heel.

  • Mike McCarthy

    RVD needs to bail on this gimmick and try to revive his career in less of a hardcore style of wrestling.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, I’m wondering if it isn’t just time for RVD to hang them up.

      • Paul Jameson

        hang them…high…..

      • Xavier

        Should of hung it up in 07

  • Paul Jameson

    only way RVD wins this is by interference.

  • Mike McCarthy

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen a match where I really don’t know what to expect.

  • Seth

    That’ll ruin your weekend. Ow.

  • Patrick

    JBL was funny during the Shield segment. ” 3 on two it’s not fair 3MB needs a lot more people.”

  • Paul Jameson

    heyman doing his best “look boss the plane…the plane” at the titles.

  • Danny Philippi

    Cue the siren and the trumpets.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Cesaro has got to be the favorite going into this ladder match.

    • Paul Jameson

      i have to say right now…..yes. judging by who’s in it….so far

    • Stephen Cash

      Too soon

  • Michael

    Ceasaro has a horrible song.

  • Paul Jameson

    Hey Jesse….did you hear the “earth shattering” news tonight?!?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      *Piledrives Paul “Owen Hart style” through a flaming table*

      • Paul Jameson

        awwww but that means you MEANT to injure me :(

        • Seth

          *Flies in from no where and splashes Paul* THAT’S ANOTHER DRINK I HAVE TO TAKE WHEN YOU MENTIONED IT! DAMN THIS DRINKING GAME!

          • Paul Jameson

            such….hostility. very ambrose of you….

  • Seth

    That’s another drink…

  • Stephen Cash

    So who is going to be in the MITB ladder match for the breifcase? Or is there not going to be one?

  • David Jr.

    Ireland, USA, Mexico and Switzerland, what other countries can be represented in the MITB.

    • Paul Jameson

      italy if they ever get really stupid and put Santino in there…….Russia if they add Rusev……

    • CJ Blaze

      Russia better not be one of them…

    • Paul Jameson

      Kofi was Jamaican for a little while…don’t forget him too…

    • Mike McCarthy

      Add Kofi Kingston and you got like 3-5 countries right there.

    • James Larochelle

      Tyson Kidd for Canada

      • CJ Blaze

        I wish!

  • Danny Philippi

    Stanley Cup Final Update:
    Kings up 3-0 through two periods.

  • Stephen Cash

    Brock Lesnar is definitely leaving MITB as champion…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Now would be a good time to strap him, but it would be a bit obvious.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Too soon.

    • James Larochelle

      MitB doesn’t need Lesnar to sell. Lesnar goes on to face the winner at Summerslam

      • Paul Jameson

        Honestly, I’d rather Lesnar defend at SS instead of challenge. I wouldn’t mind Lesnar holding it for a little while.

  • Dustyn

    Was that his NXT theme?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I believe so. If nothing else, it is remixed. It sounds very close to it.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Now that’s some great music.

  • Paul Jameson

    not what i wanted to see….corporate rollins….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Boy… It has been nearly 2 years since I heard this theme.

  • Stephen Cash

    Love the song

  • Paul Jameson

    “Dean ambrose is a lunatic”….yeah well that’s one lunatic that will kill you son.

  • James Larochelle

    Not the greatest promo so far.

  • Stephen Cash

    Seriously though will there be a briefcase MITB match?

    • Paul Jameson

      not looking like it.

      • Stephen Cash

        That’s ridiculous…

        • CJ Blaze

          There should be

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Doesn’t look like it, but they could surprise us.

      • Stephen Cash

        They should have had it at WM then… That is always one of the most entertaining storylines…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I know the comparisons have been there for years… But I am getting a very big Voldemort vibe from Rollins this week.

    • Paul Jameson

      i see it, but its an early on voldemort……

    • Scott

      What do you mean?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        His edge, his look, and the way he is holding himself on the mic. He reminds me of Phil Brooks. But that is a good thing.

        • Scott

          Ohhh hahaha read into it too hard. Was about to ask if he has a bifurcated tongue lol

        • David F

          He reminds me a lot of early RVD in ECW, Jeff Hardy and Chric Jericho rolled into one

          • David F

            Chris Jericho I meant

        • David Jr.

          I like that I started something on here since I was the first to call him He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named

          • Paul Jameson

            “You might as well call him by his name Phil Brooks….he’ll pipebomb you whether you call him his name or not”….

          • Bob’s Diner

            I always thought that was Chris Benoit

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Nope, he can be mentioned online, just not by WWE. Voldemort is taboo online, but not entirely in WWE.

          • Bob’s Diner

            How is CM Punk taboo online??

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Because almost any time he is mentioned, people get up in arms about him. There is almost always a flood of nastiness anytime a piece of Punk news is posted. So we joke around on here about him being Voldemort.

          • Bob’s Diner

            Aha! OK that makes a lot of sense… people on here really do get crazy hateful about the guy

  • Stephen Cash

    Pretty good promo for his first one

  • Mike McCarthy

    Seth Rollins proving he’s #1 on the mic too.

  • Stephen Cash

    Promo is very good actually

  • Mike McCarthy

    This is awesome.

  • Paul Jameson

    that was……awkward

  • Andrew

    crap…

  • Scott

    Ohhhh cmon……….

  • Paul Jameson

    i don’t like calling the predictible…..supercena to the rescue.

    • Xavier

      The fans were chanting for him. gotta “listen to the fans” right? That’s what the smarks always say atleast

  • Mike McCarthy

    Damnit….why, just why?

  • Stephen Cash

    There is the soon to be new champion…. If not Lesnar

  • Xavier

    Very good promo from Seth. Can’t remember the last time smarks booed the heel

  • James Larochelle

    Paint by numbers booking

    • Dustyn

      “So simple, even a child can do it!”

      • Paul Jameson

        this just in…Steph and HHH’s kids are now on the creative team lol j/k

        • Dustyn

          Free labour!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Right now, there’s little in the way of choices on booking. I don’t like it either, but WWE has to play the hands that are dealt.

      • Paul Jameson

        then I say hit the reshuffle button and play a new hand.

  • Dustyn

    “I can’t see you!”

  • Andrew

    why cena ? why not make it someone different?

    • Xavier

      Because someone different isn’t the top money maker for the company

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because The Shield has “Alienated themselves from the rest of the roster with their actions.” And when everyone else is against a set of good guys, there Cena is to help.

  • packerpf

    Happy to see seth rollins finally get on his own, lets hope wwe doesn’t drop the ball.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Did anybody get a glimpse of his eye?

    • CJ Blaze

      I tried but it seems they are trying to keep us from seeing it

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It is still a bit swollen, but looking better.

  • Danny Philippi

    Okay, Seth had some good points in his promo. Furthermore, he was the only proven main eventer in the group (ROH, remember).
    On the downside, Cena teaming with Reigns and Ambrose is like Michael Crabtree teaming with Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor.

  • K!NG

    Cena is sadly the logical choice

  • GODSENT68

    I know this is a wild crazy idea, could it be cause he’s been feuding with the Wyatts??? Just a thought

    • packerpf

      duh.

    • Scott

      That was blown off

      • Paul Jameson

        blown off or not, their hands are tied.

  • CJ Blaze

    Why do we see these matches on PPV and then given to us again on regular TV?

    • Paul Jameson

      cause you wanna see Eva Marie?!

      • CJ Blaze

        NO

        • Paul Jameson

          I’m sure Kelly Kelly isn’t doing anything important right now.

          • CJ Blaze

            I’d rather see her than Evil Red!

  • Danny Philippi

    Paige/Fox XV.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I blame one person…

      • Paul Jameson

        phil brooks?

  • Mike McCarthy

    Alicia Fox hasn’t won a match since Payback but gets another match with the champion.

  • cammo sun

    Damn Bo Dallas is annoying and just boring

  • Taylor

    I miss AJ

    • Xavier

      I still miss Kharma

      • CJ Blaze

        And Beth

      • Mike McCarthy

        Preach.

  • Michael

    Im waiting for Alicia Fox’s hair to fall off.

  • packerpf

    it’s pitiful what the former women’s division has become..

    • Seth

      Everything is better if they treat said division far more seriously. It’d help.

      • packerpf

        how is everything better? you have valets attempting to be in ring performers all the time, and most are complete failures, i.e summer rae..

        • Seth

          If you treat something as serious it works better rather than just treating everything like a running joke. Its just better business for everything, really. It’d be a step in the right direction that can get more people invested in things.

          Amazing how different the portrayal of the divas is so different from NXT to WWE…

  • Stephen Cash

    Bo Dallas may be the most boring and worst gimmick on wwe right now

    • James Larochelle

      Have you not seen Rusev?

      • Stephen Cash

        That’s my point… It’s pathetic

      • packerpf

        Rusev at least has hot lana working for him a bit, and the body/international appeal. I never understood the push for bo since nxt/fcw.

  • Paul Jameson

    HAHA We want Sable chant…that was NICE!

    • Mike McCarthy

      Actually it was we want Ziggler.

      • Paul Jameson

        I know I know, but it was just wishful thinking.

  • Stephen Cash

    I miss Beth Pheonix!!! Bring her back!!!!

  • Andrew

    i have to say that ambrose has been a really good face even those hes better as a heel.

  • Scott

    BOTCH

  • Taylor

    If Paige doesn’t scream like a lunatic she gets no reaction at all

    • Xavier

      Sadly she’s flopping as the face of the divas division

      • Seth

        How much promo time have they given her since she won the belt to develop a character for herself? Just thought I’d throw that in there.

        • Xavier

          You honestly think it would matter? AJ got plenty of promo time and she didn’t do much for the divas division either. Not blaming Paige though, it’s just a very poor division right now

          • Seth

            Anything is better than being an aimless nameless character. They’ve given her no character at this point since the call up. It does nobody any favors.

    • DanfromOz

      And if there were no Yes chants would Dbry be as over?

      • Taylor

        YES YES YES…. That was too easy

  • Danny Philippi

    If you want the divas division to shine, you’ll have to wait till Sept. 7 when Total Divas is back on E! Network. LOL

  • Stephen Cash

    Sucks to see Paige like this….

  • Xavier

    This divas division isn’t even as good as it was 4 or 5 years ago. I’d take Maryse, Eve Torres, Beth Phoenix and Gail Kim over pretty much most of the divas division right now

    • K!NG

      yeah too bad most people cant get past the divas not being like trish or lita. kinda like how no one can be better then michael jordan ya know what i mean?

  • Scott

    These Alicia Fox outbursts are getting old

  • Mike McCarthy

    SHADES OF SHAWN MICHAELS THROWING MARTY JANNETTY THROUGH THE BARBER SHOP WINDOW!!!!

    • David Jr.

      Shawn Michaels didn’t throw him through the window, Jannetty tried to dive through the window to escape.

      • Paul Jameson

        best line ever

        • David Jr.

          I love Bobby Heenan.

          • Paul Jameson

            one of the greats, for sure.

  • packerpf

    these Alicia fox “tantrums” are proof wwe has run out of good tv ideas.

  • James Larochelle

    Pink belly pink belly

  • Paul Jameson

    That’s not how Aksana likes being buttered up….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And there was the concession stand promo!

    • Taylor

      With the black tape over the popcorn container advertisements lol. Nice of that fan to do that for the wwe

  • Xavier

    This segment is crap. That is all

  • CJ Blaze

    The ladies are vicious tonight..

  • Stephen Cash

    How did the divas division get worse…?

    • Paul Jameson

      Aj married Phil Brooks….

  • Danny Philippi

    PINYATA! PINYATA! PINYATA! STICK! STICK! STICK!

  • Alex

    Save us Y2J…

  • Mike McCarthy

    WHEN ALICIA TURNED ON AKSANA IT WAS LIKE WRESTLEMANIA 25 HARDY VS HARDY

  • Scott

    Calling for Cena and Shield to stand tall (in a not so epic way) tonight after last week.

  • Stephen Cash

    Bring back Kharma, Beth, AJ, push Nattie, and push Paige and Emma correctly. I just fixed the divas division… That was easy.

    • CJ Blaze

      PREACH!

    • Taylor

      Or bra and panties matches. Just sayin

      • Paul Jameson

        PUPPIES……sorry, i miss that Lawler….

    • packerpf

      You forgot Tamina, and you have to eliminate certain people who makes others look horrible.

      • Stephen Cash

        Tamina botches way to much, and is pretty boring overall

        • packerpf

          lol, it just seems like she botches, it’s the opponents she’s going against in many instances I’ve seen. Sure she has her few like all wrestlers, but for the most part she’s solid. And a lot of the divas are boring personality wise, doesn’t mean you don’t need them for their actual wrestling ability; she just needs a character.

          • Stephen Cash

            That kick to the Bella’s face was her fault. I’m not a fan

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I want XBONE to get Gary Busey playing with Kinect.

    • Paul Jameson

      only if he honks at it like his geese.

  • Danny Philippi

    How would you grade tonight’s Raw?
    A. C-
    B. D+
    C. D
    D. D-
    E. F
    F. G

    • Scott

      Big F

      • Stephen Cash

        Wait! F as in F or F as in G?

  • Seth

    I know it wasn’t a reminder of said opening segment…but I’m going to take a drink for the drinking game anyway to forget that bad segment…yeah.

  • Seth

    and here comes Swagger. My liver is going to be angry with me…

  • Taylor

    So Pat Patterson is coming out on Legends House. That was a known thing right? Pretty sad using that to get ppl to watch

    • Paul Jameson

      seems predictible, I’m hoping for a swerve.

  • Paul Jameson

    no emma?! poor santino

  • Stephen Cash

    Meet another terrible gimmick in WWE… Santino

  • Mike McCarthy

    Watching Alicia Fox turn on Aksana I couldn’t help but feel like we were reliving WrestleMania 3 when Hogan slammed Andre.

    • Paul Jameson

      the insane force versus the inflatable object ?

    • Xavier

      Cameron agrees with this post

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Glad to see Swagger going back to his Gutwrench as a finisher.

  • packerpf

    Crazy how the guy who was the first to defeat Umaga is just this ridiculous character

    • Guest

      Cena Beat umaga first

    • Paul Jameson

      luckily it wasn’t clean thanks to Lashley.

  • Stephen Cash

    Besides Rollins… WWE is very dull right now… Including the Wyatt’s. They gotten a little boring

    • CJ Blaze

      I think it’s just this summer slump.. Bryan being injured changed things and I’m sure made a domino affect in booking and plans for the summer

    • Paul Jameson

      historically, since 2005, the time between Wrestlemania and SummerSlam is a little lacking and thin. Typically seen as the closest thing to an offseason the WWE gets.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Swagger finally avenging Santino beating him for the United States Championship. Big big day.

  • Mike McCarthy

    If R-Truth can come back from being blown up by MacGruber then Daniel Bryan can come back from this injury.

    • Paul Jameson

      *explosions* MACGRUBER *explosions*

  • Danny Philippi

    Stanley Cup Final Update:
    Kings up 3-0 with 7:18 left in the game.
    Kings have been outshot by a 3-1 margin (33-12)

  • David Jr.

    Daniel Bryan is a 4 time World Champion and his longest match in which he lost one of those 4 titles was the 18 second match from Wrestlemania 28.

    • Paul Jameson

      the kiss of death

    • Mike McCarthy

      That is an incredible stat.

      • David Jr.

        Two Title vacates and a 8 second match to Randy Orton are the other 3.

    • K!NG

      Didn’t he defend it in the elimination chamber and at the RR in a steel cage ?

      • David Jr.

        yes but he didn’t lose the title in those matches, I said in matches in which he lost a world championship.

  • Seth

    I’m liking the slow brew to the Rhodes Split.

  • Scott

    Do what?

  • Paul Jameson

    Hey Jesse…..have you heard the “earth shattering” news

    • Jesse Sherwood

      THAT DOES IT!!! *Gives Paul “The Last 5 Minutes”*

      • Paul Jameson

        was it something I said?! Cole told me to say it…

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Have you heard the story of that move yet?

          • Paul Jameson

            sadly no

          • Jesse Sherwood

            10 years ago, I was a wrestler for a local Indy promotion. I was in my first match, which I was supposed to go over in. We went out there and put on a decent match, and were in the go home sequence. I pulled him up into my finisher, which was an inverted DDT/Brainbuster combo, as the elevation was higher than the DDT but lower than a brainbuster. I didn’t get a good grip on him and he didn’t protect himself well, and ended up concussed. And all he could remember was coming out to the ring, which meant he lost 5 minutes of his memory. Thus, the name was born.

          • Paul Jameson

            that’s better than the 3 second tan.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, who will Goldy’s partner be?

    • Paul Jameson

      the Miz

    • CJ Blaze

      Sandow? Ha

    • David Jr.

      Midnight Rider Jr. and he will attack Goldust after the match.

    • Stephen Cash

      Cody Rhodes in face paint.

    • Seth

      Rico.

    • Stephen Cash

      Or Black Reign. Now that would be interesting….

    • K!NG

      Seven

  • Stephen Cash

    I would love for goldust’s partner to be Cody Rhodes in face paint!!!

    • Mike McCarthy

      My guess too.

  • Xavier

    RAW needs more Vickie

    • Mike McCarthy

      7 seconds is enough for me.

      • Xavier

        I disagree, Vickie was a heat magnet.

        • Stephen Cash

          Not the good kind of heat

          • Xavier

            Are you kidding me, she was over as a heel big time

    • Paul Jameson

      EXCUSE ME

      • Xavier

        Lol

    • Seth

      Give Vickie a microphone every week. It will be entertaining.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Damnit Cole, can you do anything right?!?!

    • Xavier

      Cole’s biggest crime is not being Jim Ross. While Cole isn’t great he isn’t nearly as bad as people wanna make him out too be

      • Stephen Cash

        Completely agree!

      • packerpf

        Cole’s worst crime is being an ass kisser his whole career while at the same time only gather about half the information he could/should, he messes up almost every ppv; that’s unacceptable.

        • Xavier

          Nah, his biggest crime is still NOT being Jim Ross. Fans need to let it go. It’s time to move on

          • packerpf

            Fans don’t care that he’s not JR, it’s that he constantly messes up, and he gets cheap heat. People also still hate him for that horrendous story with Lawler where they wasted WM time. I mean the guy’s commentary when not bland is so nonsensical the only reason he has a job is because of seniority; almost every week he’s called out by JBL for some nonsense even. Like I said it’s unacceptable how much Cole fails at his job, his job is one of the easiest in the company yet he blunders so often..

          • James Larochelle

            I wouldn’t call live announcing easy.

          • packerpf

            You watch the same guys most weeks, you could at least have their names down pat, as well as the names of the moves..granted blunders happen speaking wise, but it gets a bit after a while.

          • Paul Jameson

            I have announced football and basketball games before, you sir hit the nail right on the head. I can never fault a single announcer for anything

          • Xavier

            It’s a very hard job. Who else is out there right now

          • Xavier

            “Fans don’t care that he’s not JR”

            Are you kidding me dude. That’s all I ever hear smarks cry about when it comes too Cole

          • packerpf

            Other then your comments, I’ve never heard anyone even mention their hate for cole in the same sentence as not JR.

          • Xavier

            Where have you been then

      • Paul Jameson

        vintage Xavier? lol sorry, couldn’t resist

        • Xavier

          LMFAO

      • Seth

        At least it isn’t heel Cole.

        • Xavier

          Heel Cole was actually really good for awhile but they drug that whole Lawler/Cole angle out way too long. Most people don’t wanna admit this but Cole played a hug role in getting Bryan over when he 1st came to the WWE.

          • Paul Jameson

            his calling DB an internet nerd was key, I agree.

          • Xavier

            Rather you wanna admit it or not it’s the truth, Cole bashing Bryan every week helped Bryan get over in his early stages of his WWE career

          • Paul Jameson

            i did just admit it, had cole not been so against DB, before he showed any kind of emotion, I don’t think DB would have been backed as early as he was.

          • Xavier

            My bad, I thought you were being sarcastic at 1st lol

          • Paul Jameson

            nah, my sarcasm is usually never backed up with an extra “i agree”….then it gets murky and confusing.

          • James Larochelle

            I thought Kane and Dr. Shelby played the hug role….sorry couldn’t resist. I typo as bad as anyone

          • Xavier

            LMAO

          • David F

            dont forget the 18 second WM match against Sheamus

  • Scott

    Having a creepy feeling about HHH saying he guarantees its the last we’ll see of The Shield…..

  • James Larochelle

    Against the Sh…wyatt Family

  • Mike McCarthy

    Kevin Hart on Raw? YES! YES! YES!

  • Xavier

    Kevin Hart on RAW is gonna be EPIC

  • Danny Philippi

    Wow! I am lucky. To have my business trip fall next week is saving me from another night like this one. If Raw is in Cleveland next week, screw Kevin Hart (even though his comedy is dope) and book Johnny Manziel for Raw and watch the ratings soar.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Tweet from Digiornio Pizza’s official account “CM PUNK IS LIKE A HOT PIZZA; SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO LET IT COOL DOWN A LITTLE AND MAYBE IT’LL COME BACK TO WRESTLING #RAW”

    • Mike McCarthy

      Random yet hilarious.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      This is like the second week in a row they have been tweeting little things like that. They have a fan in the PR department!

  • Scott

    Cena is a walking merch billboard

    • Paul Jameson

      ha instead of coming out saluting now lets show the new towel which you can purchase at merchandise stands around the arena.

      • K!NG

        the only thing i would buy is cena toilet paper

        • Paul Jameson

          then you can’t see……well you know

  • Seth

    I said it earlier but the Shield Members in a way remind me a ton of the crazy ass Von Erichs. They do whatever they have to do to make their enemies suffer.

  • Seth

    YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

  • Scott

    I see alot of potential in a Wyatt/Ambrose feud. The Lunatic vs The Loose Cannon

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yeah yeah yeah…

      • Scott

        Harper and Reigns would be good too

        • James Larochelle

          That’s a match set for a house show in Canada in July.

          • James Larochelle

            No wait…it’s Bray vs. Reigns

        • Jesse Sherwood

          WWE is stocked from head to toe with talent. We could lose half of the current main event scene and have replacements before you could sneeze.

  • Seth

    Those stairs didn’t stand a chance.

  • packerpf

    Cena’s apron expressions are a bit much..

  • Paul Jameson

    you know, the lets go cena/cena sucks chant used to be high pitched for the lets go cena part, but its slowly getting lower in pitch lately. More of his fans getting older maybe?!

    • packerpf

      less parent willing to waste money on a lackluster wwe event.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I think the fans are starting to split more down the middle know. Before, it was clear that men hated Cena and families love him. Now, fans are 1. Chanting it because they are conditioned to it. 2. Starting to mature a bit and support the guy who is such a mainstay. 3. Realizing some of the hate is unfounded.

      • Paul Jameson

        see I was thinking that, but see now its starting to sound like some are even chanting both sides lol

        • Jesse Sherwood

          That’s why I placed #1 there. The fans are psychologically conditioned now that there has to be a Cena Sucks chant with any Let’s Go Cena chant. Until WWE does something drastic with him, they won’t break that conditioning.

          • Paul Jameson

            I did like them singing “John Cena Sucks” to his them song ala Kurt Angle…..i miss that already.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Same here man…

  • James Larochelle

    Do the Rangers even get one win vs. The Kings? It’s 3-0 now.

    • Xavier

      Cali stand up

    • packerpf

      Rangers may get 1, but this series is over by game 5. Kings had an impressive playoff run this season.

  • Paul Jameson

    ok now I’m getting worried…..this whole “end of the shield” thing has been repeated too much….to what reason i wonder

  • Xavier

    Anyone else find it strange that Triple H didn’t seem worried about Cena teaming with The Shield at all

    • Mike McCarthy

      Made it seem like he has someone planned to come out.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Most likely himself and Evolution.

    • Scott

      Yes

  • David F

    Homecoming for Rowen tonight

  • Paul Jameson

    everytime they zoom in on his eyes I just hear someone yell…..HHHHHAAAAAARRPPPPPEEEEER GET THE TABLE

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well… there’s a dated chant! Fruity Pebbles!

    • Paul Jameson

      now i want some, thanks.

    • James Larochelle

      It’s been popping up lately.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Weak crowd in Minneapolis, almost as bad as Birmingham.

    • packerpf

      Minneapolis isn’t big on Cena, but the matches throughout the night also haven’t been giving them too much to be all cheery about.

    • packerpf

      Also a lot of towns are quiet like this, but it’s just WWE pumping crowd sounds in to make it sound like they are more lively.

      • David F

        Minny was good at EC PPV. Shield v Wyatt family was classic

  • Scott

    Blatant spot calling from Cena

  • Paul Jameson

    ow, that bump on the throw suplex made MY back hurt.

  • savokes

    Totally heard the “back duplex throw”

  • Michael

    Nice conversation in the ring Cena….Botchamania

  • CJ Blaze

    1000+ comments WOOO!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We are slowly recovering!

  • K!NG

    reigns just did cena’s move lol

  • Stephen Cash

    I’ve always found it funny that Cena is too beat up to make the hot tag, but then miraculously has the energy to jump half way across the ring to make the hot tag…

  • Paul Jameson

    You know, if you’re gonna spot call in the ring…do like the football teams do, use cover words. Rianna fruitty pebbles……

  • Scott

    Another spot call from Cena! Good Lord

  • K!NG

    wow that was a big super kick

  • Mike McCarthy

    Harper with an awesome super kick!

  • Xavier

    That was a really good match

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Great go home sequence for this match!

  • Mike McCarthy

    …that’s it?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anyone else notice the complete absence of Orton tonight?

    • Paul Jameson

      he’s on vacation

    • Mike McCarthy

      He’s on vacation.

    • James Larochelle

      They did say he wad on vacation and showed his tweet poolside

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Ah, ok. I must have missed that. Well, hope he has some good relaxation.

        • Paul Jameson

          he looked comfy

          • James Larochelle

            Indeed.

          • David F

            at least he wasnt taking a dump in any divas bags tonight

          • Paul Jameson

            wow…lol nice

  • Paul Jameson

    God i so would had Cena turn right there……just woulda been fun.

    • Scott

      I know right!

    • Xavier

      With Bryan’s title run proving to be less than stellar because of his injury it would of been a horrible move to turn Cena right now

      • Paul Jameson

        of course…and the internet woulda blown up. Which is what woulda made it fun lol

        • Xavier

          Lol true

  • Mike McCarthy

    Ambrose just threw a chair in the ring

  • Danny Philippi

    Decent way to end a less than decent Raw. There is a lack of depth in the main event scene of WWE now and just have to hope Daniel Bryan and Brock Lesnar make their mark before its too late. Won’t be able to comment on Raw next week. See you guys and gals June 23. And be safe.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      See you Danny!

  • James Larochelle

    Good night programs

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Peace James!

  • Xavier

    Calling it a night, ya’ll have a blessed evening

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Later Xavier!

  • Paul Jameson

    Right then, well another Raw has come and gone. Did they knock it out of the park like they needed to, not even close. But it was a better Raw than last week, many can agree on that.

    Til the next OTL, stay safe and don’t do ANYTHING Sandow will do for a McMahon.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night Paul!

  • Confused

    Am I hearing the same thing as the reporter? BNB is ok but he is not getting top pops every week as you say.
