In Ring Segment

Reigns in the stands, heads to the ring. Cole tells us to use #RomanIsRaw on Twitter. Reigns grabs a mic through cheers and pop.

Reigns – Unlike some people, when I come to the ring, I come with a point. Trip says he put me in the Battleground Fatal 4 Way because it’s what’s best for business. But maybe he did it so I could neutralize Cena, which I can. Maybe he thinks Kane can neutralize me, but he can’t. All that happens and Orton is walking out with the Title. But he won’t. I assess and attack. I’ve assessed this a thousand times, and I know what will happen. I’m a wanted man around here, but I’ve got a hair trigger.

“Cena sucks!” chants.

Reigns – When Roman Reigns is in the house, you’re damn right Cena sucks! (HUGE pop) I don’t are if The Authority is here or not, what they have to say it’s irrelevant. What Orton has to say is irrelevant, because he’s just a pawn in this game. Me, I’m not a pawn, I’m just the next WWE WHC. (pop) Believe THAT!

Fire erupts and out comes Kane. Kane glares down at Reigns. Reigns glares back at him.

Reigns – With their absence, are you, ah, standing in for The Authority now? Are you no longer the Devil’s Favorite Demon? Because lately you’ve looked like Triple H’s lapdog. Let me correct myself. Lately, you’ve just been Randy Orton’s bitch! (pop)

Kane starts toward the ring. Reigns drops the mic and leaves the ring to meet Kane on the bottom of the ramp. Reigns on Kane, but then Reigns into the barricade.

Back and forth, then Kane fights back, bouncing Reigns’ head off something back there. Reigns over the barricade. Kane over and Reigns face first into the post. Reigns rolled in, Kane in to stop him, but all the refs run to the ring (5, I think), but Kane chokeslams a ref in the ring.

Then the producers out! Fit Finlay, Mercury, and Jamie Noble are the three producers out, all in suits. Fit and Jamie hold Reigns back. Fit gets shovey with Reigns, then walks off. Jamie takes a punch, then Fit takes the spear. Kane on the apron takes a superman punch from Reigns. Mercury backs against Kane, as it he can hold Kane back by himself.

King – The last time I left this arena in Montreal, it didn’t think I’d ever be back. I want to say that thanks to the company doctors, the Royal Victorian Hospital here in Montreal, and all of your thoughts and prayers, I’m back. That night put a damper on what was supposed to be…

“Jerry!” chants.

King – Thank you. Put a damper on what was supposed to be a great night for two countrymen of yours. Pat Patterson and Bret Hart. Tonight, it’s my honor to bring out a true Canadian legend, a fellow HOFer, the best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be, Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart!

JBL says, “I’d debate that.

Bret – In fact, I got goosebumps up my arms. I’m getting that feeling I’d get when I was WWE World Champion. The best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be. It’s the kind of rush I’d get when I had dreams of being the Excellence of Execution.

Bret’s music hits again, and out comes Bret ‘Sandow’ Hart. He’s in what looks like Bret’s ring gear, right down to the leather jacket (but not the actual jacket).

Sand-Hart – May I present the real best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be. Bret ‘The Hitman’ Sand-Hart! (climbs in the ring) You know, being here in Montreal, I’m reminded of a regret I have in my career. I’m not talking about the fact that I tapped out to my own submission hold to my idol Shawn Michaels, right here in this building. (serious heat) Or that I was so embarrassed that I pretended it was an elaborate screwjob! That you all bought into! My one regret is that through my own career, is that I was actually proud to be from a 3rd world country like Canada. (huge heat) But you know, come to think of it, I have another regret, that I never stood in the ring with the greatest performer in the WWE, Damien Sandow. Now Bret, I know that…

“You suck!” chants. Bret motions to the fans and says something off mic to Sand-Hart.

Renee – Please welcome The Miz. Last week you made your triumphant return.

Miz – I’m sure you have an outstanding question, but more important, I have a letter from a fan. Dear Miz, You’re my favorite WWE Superstar and movie star. Last week when I heard of a former WWE Champion and multimedia star would return, I said a little prayer that it was you. I wasn’t disappointed. But then you were interrupted by that rat faced, tattooed rock star, Jericho. When he viciously attacked you when you weren’t looking, a part of me died inside. Please, put him in his place and continue your climb to headline WrestleMania once again, signed your biggest fan, Johnny Russo. (“What?”) I get thousands of these letters Renee. The magnitude of what Jericho could have done to my face. This face is my livelihood. This face is my moneymaker. Think of what could have happened to The Marine 4, think about what could have happened to this company if something happened to this face. Most importantly, think about what the fans would loose. Little Johnny Russo. Don’t worry Johnny, when it comes to this fist, Jericho is ready for his closeup. (camera closes in on Miz’s fist)

I was wondering how you were going to save an entire universe when you can’t even save yourself? Hahaha! Do you think it will be your words that can protect you from me? Because I believe that last week, in that very ring, I proved that actions speak much louder than words. Hahaha! Actions scream eternities to a generation with no tongue, yeah. You can go on Chris and say whatever you think you need to say, but I will hold your every word against you. Never, eeeever, let you forget. Because these people Chris, look at these people, that you used to call Jerichoholics, are now, they sing to a different tune. Because they know that I inspire them. They know that I got the whole world…

Jericho – Quiet! Would you please, shut the hell up! (The fans were right with Jericho, yelling the words.) Quiet Wyatt, you don’t have to say anything else, because for once, I agree with every word you’re saying. You’re right, actions do speak louder than words, and right now my actions are this. This is just you and me, I’m going to come up that ramp, knock you out of that rocking chair, and beat your ass!

Rollins – Hey, don’t come at me like that. Just because we have a match tonight doesn’t mean we can’t talk like two civilized adults here, alright? I know you don’t trust me, and last week I did consider cashing in, but that was last week. Tonight’s not about that. Tonight’s about who’s the best. When I beat you, greatest WWE Champion of all time, the measuring stick, and I prove that I’m the best, maybe then I’ll cash in my contract. Or maybe, God forbid, you get hurt out there (laughter in his voice), an opportunity presents itself, maybe then I’ll cash in. Either way, your days are numbered John, because if it’s not me, maybe it will be Kane.

Cena – Maybe.

Rollins – If not Kane, maybe it will be Orton.

Cena – Maybe. Civilized. This is good. In the most civilized way possible, let me say, I think you’re full of crap. Thank you for an extremely backhanded compliment. Allow me to give you a little one. You’re good Seth, you’re damn good. I know what The Authority sees in you. Now let’s think, all those days you were dressing under the arena with The Shield, scrapping for everything. Times have changed, and I’m not talking about your futuristic jumpsuit. I mean you walk around now like a kid who signed a big contract, the case literally guarantees him to be Champion.

Rollins – That’s right.

Cena – No, the only guarantee you got, tonight you have a match with a Champion, which means I guarantee you’re in for the fight of your life, Seth.

Rollins (looking down his nose at Cena) – See you out there.

In the center of the ring Reigns grabs Cena’s hand and raises it. Cena looks shocked, about to hit whoever was touching him, as Reigns smirks at Cena. Reigns waits as the fans chant, “Spear!” Cena grabs Reigns’ arm and raises it to huge pop. Reigns smirks at Cena. A few more moments, then Reigns lifts Cena’s arm to heat from the fans.

    Here we go into another Monday Night Raw! I have to admit that I’m rather excited!

    • David Jr.

      So I don’t show up for Smackdown and you have over 200 comments?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        They went crazy!

        • Paul Jameson

          hey that was a good night….all around….

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I was with my kids, so I couldn’t join, but reading over the comments, it seemed fun!

          • Paul Jameson

            kinda hard to troll 3 people lol

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

        And there were three of us. It’s your job to beat that this week without me!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    After last week’s numerous surprises, I have to say I am hyped up! And it isn’t because WWE kept rubbing the surprises in my face on USA all week….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So what is everyone else looking forward to?

    • Mike McCarthy

      More Cesaro/Big E!!

    • Paul Jameson

      Prolly easier to say what I don’t wanna see…and that’s another failed cash in fake out.

  • Paul Jameson

    I wanna see how wrong all the dirty sheets are about tonight…that’s top on my list.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m guessing there are a ton of rumors flying around? Color me curious…

      • Paul Jameson

        “Steve Borden was seen in Toronto today stated to be catching a connected flight to Montreal for a reunion…..will he be at Raw?!” <—-my favorite

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Groan… If I had a nickel for every Sting rumor… I could move to Maine.

          • Paul Jameson

            That is by far my favorite, but yes I read at least 14 Sting rumors about tonight on 8 different sights. But i digress…

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

            That would be nice! But then I’d be rushing to make more garb for this week!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, we know for sure that Bret Hart will be on tonight! And Y2J BABAY!

    • Paul Jameson

      I just wish Harper and Rowan just stay out of it though. The Y2J Bray match on NXT was solid enough, we don’t need to see Jericho beat down by all three at this point….

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I don’t think we will. I think Jericho will team with The Usos for Battleground, and they will get separate matches at SS, where Jericho will put over Bray and The Family will win Tag gold.

        • Paul Jameson

          Y2Uso versus the wyatts could be a fun match though. I’ll allow it!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Instead of giving out free previews, I really wish WWE would focus on getting the Network on more platforms.

    • Paul Jameson

      At this point though, would a free preview make a difference?!

      • Mike McCarthy

        Maybe, they did a free trial before but it didn’t really matter since you had to add a credit card. Now you can just go and view it with no hassle, so I’d consider this their first free trial.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, it is across all major gaming consoles and most streaming devices as is. The only things I can’t think they are on is internet TVs and bluray players.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well…. Except Wii U… :(

        • Mike McCarthy

          And that’s the one I have >_<

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Same here Mike, but I have a PS3 as well. If you have MK8, message me of FB, and I will send my friend code!

          • Mike McCarthy

            I do have it!! We’ll have to play sometime this week!

          • Mike McCarthy

            I’ve got my 360, with no games. But they just changed it so you can use the streaming sites without live, so I’ve got that for now.

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

          And ChromeCast, which I have!

  • Xavier

    What’s good my wrestling fam?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Life, Liberty, and WNW!!!

      • Xavier

        Lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    But Saturday Night Main Event has been added to the Network, so I’ve got something to hold me over until Battleground.

    • Paul Jameson

      If only they would hurry up with the Monday Night War, then, I’ll be happy.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Working on a new article, it’s about The Rock returning and if he actually does so he needs to start delivering rubs. Should be done later in the week.

    • Paul Jameson

      And yet, they want to throw Rock verse Brock at us……..some rub there.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        The only rubbing in that match would VKM rubbing his… *Kendra smacks me in the back of the head* POCKETBOOK!

        • Seth

          and the pocketbook sees moths fly out.

        • Paul Jameson

          The pocketbook that just trimmed 20 million off the budget “supposedly”…..

    • Gary Robert

      said it before, Rock has to lose if a Rock?Brock match actually happens. HAS TO.

  • Paul Jameson

    Anyone follow Austin’s podcast? I love hearing him talk about scripted promos and how more talent need to just find themselves in their promos.

  • Xavier

    I wonder what role Bret Hart will play tonight

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Authority fodder?

      • Xavier

        I’d actually enjoy some back & forth between Hart & Triple H

    • Paul Jameson

      if you’d believe the dirt sheets…special enforcer between Y2J and the Miz……but lets face it…..that is flimsy at best.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Whatever he ends up doing, John Cena will come out and start kissing his ass, like he does with all legends.

      • Xavier

        You must of missed his promo last time they got together when he completely owned CM Punk

        • Mike McCarthy

          I’m not sure what my comment has to do with CM Punk…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He’s saying, Last time Hart was on Raw, he and Cena destroyed Punk. No real butt kissing.

    • Harlie Boucher

      Washed up over-used old dude.

      • Xavier

        Harsh smh

  • Danny Philippi

    WNW NATION!
    Xavier, Mike, Paul, Kendra, and Jesse, among others, what’s up?
    Tonight’s Raw should bring Montreal to its feet!

    • Paul Jameson

      how’s it going!

      • Danny Philippi

        Peachy, dude.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Hoping for a quality Ziggler match, same as every week.

      • Paul Jameson

        he has been on a booking roll lately….fingers crossed it continues!

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

      Danny! As long as we don’t have any major bad shockers, like Santino and Petey, it should be an amazing night!

      • Paul Jameson

        WHY SANTINO…….WHYYYYYY…..wait….what am I saying………

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

          I love his humor and creativity, and he really did know how to work the ring.

          • Paul Jameson

            no i know…but I’m saying I can’t believe I’m actually wishing he wasn’t going. His schtick with Kozlov and the Tea with Sheamo still makes me laugh.

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

            Tea was a fave of mine. So well executed!

    • Xavier

      I hope so, how you been bro?

      • Danny Philippi

        Peachy.

  • Mike McCarthy

    The next episode of WrestleMania Rewind is basically just a CM Punk tribute, they’re really not advertising any specific match.

    • Harlie Boucher

      Do they really need to advertise a match for WRESTLEMANIA rewind? Don’t they usually focus on how the person got to the Wrestlemania match?

      • Mike McCarthy

        Well yeah, but it’s about multiple WrestleManias as well as his MitB cash-ins.

    • Paul Jameson

      voldemort lives yet again!

  • Danny Philippi

    Which return from last week is the best in the long term?
    A. Chris Jericho
    B. AJ
    C. The Miz
    D. None of the above

    • Paul Jameson

      E….all

    • Xavier

      Honestly, I’d say None of the above

    • Mike McCarthy

      C. The Miz is finally heel once again!!

    • CJ Blaze

      B. AJ

    • Harlie Boucher

      A. Makes it so Bray isn’t lost in the shuffle.

  • Paul Jameson

    A-Ri growing a D-Bry beard…..and BYRON is on the panel for the preshow?! Poor Josh Matthews….

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

      So unhappy about Josh!

  • CJ Blaze

    It’s finally Monday! Something I only look forward to in the summer.

  • Danny Philippi

    Not sure if it is good news or not, but 9 weeks from tonight is the season premier of Monday Night Football. Giants at Lions, then Chargers at Cardinals.

    • Paul Jameson

      well its bad news for the Lions at least….

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And…. Detroit’s season is over.

      • Paul Jameson

        Wow, you don’t even let them get to Spring Trainings games….you just close the doors. Tsk tsk tsk…..

  • CJ Blaze

    Seth Rollins vs. John Cena… I loved their match on SmackDown several months ago. It’s a dream come true to see Seth Rollins in the main event scene.

    • Xavier

      I enjoyed their match on SD as well. Hopefully they’ll get a solid 15-20 minutes to work

  • Paul Jameson

    Well at least we won’t have a fake cash in tonight…..Cena is facing Rollins in a non title match.

    • CJ Blaze

      But there’s always after the match lol

      • Paul Jameson

        Not with Ambrose in the building! lol

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

          I have to admit I love that Ambrose is going to be a boil on Rollins’ ass as long as he has that case.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          *Insert Dean Ambrose “Nope” meme here*

          • Paul Jameson

            Ambrose is a very Meme-able character….

          • CJ Blaze

            (reload to see image)

          • Paul Jameson

            *on dial up*…..guess I’ll see it by hour 3…… :(

          • Xavier

            LMAO

          • CJ Blaze

            I have this saved in my images so I can use it whenever haha

  • Danny Philippi

    Who is watching WWE Network right now?
    A. I am
    B. Not me

    • Paul Jameson

      I’m trying, but the random skipping is awkward…..and it isn’t my net so *shrug*

    • CJ Blaze

      I am!

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

      C. I always forget about the Network going into Raw, but I’m now tuned in.

      • Paul Jameson

        turn it off….its BYRON…..

  • Mike McCarthy

    Raw Pre-Show Update: Dean Ambrose vs. Randy Orton tonight!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      T**** Master vs. Viper! I like it!

    • Paul Jameson

      could be intense…..especially if they both hit some of their moves…..hoping for no Rollins interference.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Their match on SmackDown was great, hopefully they get a little more time.

        • Paul Jameson

          exactly, I’m wanting more wrestling times, with 3 hours, they can give us a little more time. We don’t need a Cole-cap every 10 minutes.

  • Danny Philippi

    Random thought: I think the reason Roman Reigns has the rocket attached to him is because he is related to the Rock (cousins, I think).

    • Paul Jameson

      While I could see that, sure….I think he’s earned a good bit of what he’s getting too. He may still be “greener” than most on the roster….but he has IT……and he is over like rover…..as people on here like to say.

  • Seth

    Let’s hope we have a kick ass show. I feel a damn sinus infection coming.

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

      I was just thinking the same thing! The sinus infection part.

      • Seth

        It’s going around more than *insert drug here* in an ECW locker room.

        • Paul Jameson

          ……..see also RVD carry on bag…..

          • Seth

            See also the downers that made Sabu sleep in a meeting. Yipe…

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

          Oh, beautifully done! I’d have gone with Dawn Marie in an ECW locker room, but that’s just me.

          • Paul Jameson

            Candice Michelle in a WWE lockerroom?!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Melina in a WWE Locker room?

          • Paul Jameson

            really….you think Melina was passed around more than Candice?!? REALLY?! REALLY?!

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

            Oh, yeah, Melina slept around! Then again, so did Mickie James… And both caused more trouble with skanking around than CM did.

          • Paul Jameson

            And yet, CM has some awesome skinimax movies lol….can we call it a tie?!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Mickie…. *SHUDDERS*

          • Paul Jameson

            hey…..that country girl can survive…..

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Two words… Jenny Jones.

          • Paul Jameson

            oh I thought you were gonna channel LayCool and say Jenny Craig…..

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

            It can’t be unseen!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Ralphs all over floor*

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

            Paul, it you haven’t seen it, go to youtube, look up Mickie James on Jenny Jones, then come back and tell us what you think of the country girl!

          • Paul Jameson

            oh I don’t even need to go watch that, I have low low LOW care for Mickie James…..ever since her first Mick kick on Trish I never cared for her.

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

            It’s still worth the watch. It really is!

          • Paul Jameson

            ok..so you say watch it…Jessie ralphs everywhere…….yeah I’ll pass…I don’t need to see 2 girls 1 cup part 2…..

          • Seth

            It’s tolerated more so if you’re talented. Let’s just say one of those ladies had more talent overall than the other and call it a day. Lol

          • Seth

            Batista in the women’s locker room?

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

            Yeah, I have to say Melina rather than CM. Melina was known to spread her legs, all the while keeping JoMo on a short leash.

          • Seth

            Well professionally I can say she helped Lance Storm in terms of an overall character and chemistry. Personally…well…uh…she was let’s say the word used more than our favorite sailor uses the f word…

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

            She did help my favorite red Ranger, but I love him for so much more than ECW.

          • Seth

            Someone gave me a tape of a singles match between Ultimo Dragon and Lance Storm in I believe it was 1994 or 1995. I don’t remember the year because it has been a long time since I saw the match. I just remember the match itself being very very awesome.

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

            Lance has always been a fave of mine, though not treated as well as he should have been a lot of the time.

          • Seth

            I loved him doing tag matches with William Regal. Those two together ruled.

  • Paul Jameson

    preview episode of Monday Night War following Raw…..I’m content tonight!

  • CJ Blaze

    Gonna get some edu-ma-cation by watching The Monday Night War

    • Jesse Sherwood

      :( Santino reference…

      • Paul Jameson

        son of mah gun

      • CJ Blaze

        I know :(

    • Mike McCarthy

      I’m hoping I learn a little more than i did from playing WWE ’13.

      • Paul Jameson

        i want some DIRT….ya know?! i mean we see the main stories all the time in games and random dvds…but some untold things would be nice.

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

      I’m a bit jealous, you’re getting to look at some of this with fresh eyes, something us fogies don’t have. Then again, we live through it. Both sides have advantages and disadvantages.

      • Mike McCarthy

        It’ll definitely be cool to get to live through it for the first time, but it’s hard to recreate the nostalgia that comes with watching live.

  • Danny Philippi

    Random thought: Last week’s Cesaro vs. Kofi Kingston match sucked major league meatballs.

  • Paul Jameson

    And may we NEVER have another match end on the App ever again please!

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Poll: “Which new champion will reign longer?”
    John Cena 60%
    AJ Lee 40%

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Must be a lot of kids or COLE MINERS in the app tonight…

      • Seth

        DAMN YOU COLE MINERS! DAMN YOU TO THE SEVENTH PIT OF HADES!

    • Danny Philippi

      How about both lose their championship title the same night. Why not!? Maybe Summerslam.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        But AJ would need to lose it the next night for the reigns to be the same.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Raw Pre-Show Update: Cesaro vs. Kofi Kingston tonight in a rematch from last week.

    • Paul Jameson

      which will end on the app……aaaagain…….

  • Danny Philippi

    Who is better on the Raw Pre-Show?
    A. Alex Riley
    B. Booker T

    • Paul Jameson

      C. Anyone but Byron….

    • CJ Blaze

      A.

    • Mike McCarthy

      A.

  • Xavier

    I really wish they wouldn’t have altered Bret’s theme music when he returned in 2010

    • Paul Jameson

      agreed…its like they tried to align it more to the Nattie, TJ and…..what’s his name theme they were using as the new Hart Foundation….

      • Seth

        David Hart Smith they billed him as I believe…Bulldog’s son. He’s doing well in NJPW in a big man tag team with Vance Archer…formerly Lance Hoyt. Those two together make a sum of their team better than their individual parts and the individual parts are doing better in that style.

        • Paul Jameson

          No, I knew who it was, I was making a point. They burried him when he had a look that could have worked back then.

          • Seth

            He was briefly a cowboy too…

          • Paul Jameson

            oh he is probably still a cowboy…at hart. But still…..if he had the NXT we have now, things could be different.

          • Seth

            Honestly…I’m not so sure about that. I believe he’s one of those wrestlers who is better away from the WWE style and working the NJPW style at this point.

      • Xavier

        Yeah, I didn’t like that much at all. The version from 94-97 was the best

        • Seth

          It’s amazing how important the entrance music is for a wrestler…isn’t it?

          • Paul Jameson

            *cough* cesaro get a new one please *cough*

          • Xavier

            It truly is. Entrance music really sets the tone.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Big E has taken his promo work to a whole new level, I’m confident he won’t get lost in the shuffle.

  • CJ Blaze

    Roman Reigns kicking off Raw

    • Xavier

      He’s the future

  • Danny Philippi

    FOUR MINUTES!

  • Danny Philippi

    AJ/Paige vs Cameron/Naomi tonight!

    • Paul Jameson

      oh THAT one will implode!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Four way brawl!

  • Danny Philippi

    TWO MINUTES!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    IT’S TIME!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Raw Pre-Show Update: AJ Lee & Paige will team up to face The Funkadactyls tonight! Sorry my stream is behind.

    • Paul Jameson

      its all good….

      • Mike McCarthy

        Free preview slowing down my Network speed >_< my pre-show isn't even over yet.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So… Reigns vs. Cena next year? Who wants to get hyped?

    • Paul Jameson

      Reigns versus Taker…..my 2nd favorite dirt sheet rumor….

    • David Jr.

      Me.

    • Xavier

      I’d actually love too see Reigns/Lesnar at WM31 for the title with Reigns going over clean if Reigns is ready

  • Scott

    Whats up everyone!!!! Looking forward to some Raw is Jericho…..and Wyatt tonight!!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That is going to be a fun feud!

  • James Larochelle

    Greetings Programs

  • Seth

    I noticed they totally edited out the ‘one more time chant’…I never said fans weren’t bloodthirsty jerks sometimes. XP

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, they don’t want the golden boy hated even more…

      • Paul Jameson

        wait…who’s golden at this time?!

        • Seth

          He’s got the golden ticket…

          • Paul Jameson

            stardust does……

          • Seth

            That gimmick is fun.

      • Seth

        A little late for that.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Love how they have let Roman keep the music and entrance!

    • Seth

      I think his gear could use a little bit of an update though…because it’s a little TOO similar to Rollins at the moment. Not an overhaul but an update.

  • Paul Jameson

    haha…Reigns just nonchalantly fist bumped that random fan…..didn’t even look at him…..

  • Xavier

    Major test for Reigns here too see how far his promo work has come

    • Harlie Boucher

      Still needs work.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      So far… Not great, but not bad either.

      • Paul Jameson

        it took Cena sucks chants to make him come out of it…..he’ll learn.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Reigns gains a little more momentum every week.

    • CJ Blaze

      I think that little bit of momentum build is great and better than shoving him in the top.

  • Xavier

    LMAO, nice jab by Reigns

  • Paul Jameson

    haha nice one Reigns…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cena Sucks chant! And Roman rolls with it!!!

  • Scott

    REIGNS JUST OWNED!!!

  • Seth

    Good one liner. He gets an A from me in terms of interacting with the audience…something that people don’t do enough.

    • Xavier

      Same here

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Kane vs. Reigns? I can enjoy this!

  • CJ Blaze

    Nice one Roman!

  • Paul Jameson

    Cena sucks…..Kane randy orton’s bitch?! lets get it on!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Already getting good, awesome!

  • Xavier

    The WWE is truly trying to groom Reigns too be that guy or they would not have put him in this spot here

  • Mike McCarthy

    Reigns promo work is good enough for him to stand on his own, but he’s got room to improve (which is normal) I commend Reigns for acting like there’s no pressure on him. If I have one note it’s that he needs to put more energy into his promos. But he’s ready for this push.

    • Xavier

      Agreed, and he showed some ability to roll with the punches with that jab at Cena there.

  • Seth

    Kane and Roman Reigns have been on and off programming with one another ever since the shield itself debuted…and it still feels fresh. Good job to everyone involved with this.

  • Paul Jameson

    no….don’t let the zebra crew end this!!!!

  • Seth

    REF DEATH!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    FINLAY!

    • David Jr.

      JAMIE NOBLE!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        JOEY MERCURY!

        • Paul Jameson

          ….and no JoMo :(

        • David Jr.

          BRAY WYATT AND BO DALLAS’S DADDY, IRS

          • Paul Jameson

            there it is! i was waiting!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Finlay sighting!

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

      sighted and crushed

  • Paul Jameson

    finley….you can’t hold back reigns….don’t even try!

  • Seth

    Finlay just got killed.

  • Paul Jameson

    hahaha….I’M FINLAY…..AND I JUST GOT SPEARED

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    And a spear to Finley!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Joey Mercury!

  • Scott

    I THINK ROMAN REIGNS JUST MELTED MY TV SCREEN!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BAH GAWD! REIGNS JUST BROKE HIM IN HALF!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      HE’S DEAD, BAH GAWD HE’S DEAD!

    • CJ Blaze

      I wish we could’ve heard that.

    • Seth

      JR > Cole for moments like that…

    • Scott

      That segment definitely needed Good Ole JR!!!

  • Xavier

    He’s over. It’ll be interesting too see where Reigns is at in terms of popularity by the time Bryan returns. The WWE will have a problem on their hands (a good problem though) I think.

    • Seth

      One of the better ways to help with said problem is to get a heel on par with the babyfaces they’re trying to build up. One more well placed heel can help all parties in this one. I’d suggest Sheamus perhaps but I’m possibly one of the biggest Sheamus marks here so I’m…biased. Lol

  • rschell21

    Finlay got the hell speared out of him

  • Mike McCarthy

    Great way to kickoff Raw, Finlay did a good job taking that spear.

  • Danny Philippi

    Opening segment: 7 out of 10. But I’m using Bret’s scale.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Then shouldn’t it be 4/10?

      • Danny Philippi

        HAHA!

      • David Jr.

        Isn’t that only if Triple H was part of it?

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE doing this Fatal-4-Way is genius, it’s getting the anti-Cena fans to cheer for Reigns.

  • Mike McCarthy

    First segment done and we’ve almost hit 250!!!

    • Seth

      Gosh, if you put a dot in front of that number I’d feel like a reject baseball player!

  • Danny Philippi

    Next time Finaly tries to break up a fight, he should bring his Irish stick.

    • rschell21

      The shilaylay

  • K!NG

    I was out taking my boy for a walk so i missed the opening segement of RAW what did i miss ?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Reigns killed Finlay!

      • K!NG

        lol was finlay in a match or just there in a suit

        • Mike McCarthy

          He was out there as an executive trying to break up Reigns & Kane.

          • K!NG

            wasnt sure i almost got excited thinking finlay returned to the ring lol

          • Seth

            I’m visualizing Finlay stretching the hell out of a greenhorn now and miss him in the ring. :(

        • Jesse Sherwood

          There to control the Reigns/Kane brawl. Took a SICK spear!

  • ldb

    How much better was that opening than the usual 20 minute HHH or Steph babble.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Immensely!

    • Scott

      No word can describe how much better in my mind lol

      • Paul Jameson

        indescribably….

    • Seth

      I think everyone likes at least a taste of the action to start. Occasionally I think it’d be a good idea to open with a tag match(I.E. the Usos) or something to just wet the appetite of what’s to come.

  • Mr.V

    Aww is this going to be a super smarky heel crowd in Canada? I think they were saying thank you Kane!! This should be fun!!

  • Seth

    DEP!

  • Xavier

    New music for Harper & Rowans?

    • Paul Jameson

      they had it at an earlier appearance…..though i miss the harmonica lol

    • Seth

      They debuted that at the PPV. Their entrance at the PPV was awesome and creepy.

    • Mike McCarthy

      New-ish, it debuted at Money in the Bank.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Todd/Tom Phillips welcomes us and recaps the last segment. He puts over the home city and recaps what’s advertises for the rest of the night. Alicia Fox interrupts, she asks if he’s still mad at her. Alicia Fox will face Nikki Bella tonight with a hand tied behind their back. Alicia says nobody ties her up, but Todd/Tom definitely has. She asks how many times he’s been tied up with his tie. He says none. She says he cutes and asks what he’s doing later, and he says hopefully avoiding her. She gets offended but Tom pretends he heard somebody call her name and he tells her her match is next. She walks away, and Tom says her match is actually later tonight.

  • Danny Philippi

    Usos v Wyatts #26 in 2014.

    • Paul Jameson

      and how many of them have been horrible?

      • Gary Robert

        none

    • Seth

      They can wrestle another twenty six thousand times…and it’ll be fun. Usos are a perfect opening match…the Wyatts are the perfect people to throw them around.

  • Scott

    In seeing a comment about Jim Ross from Jesse. A moment like we just watched is one that if you muted the tv and imagine JR commentating, it makes it that much better. Jim Ross is completely underrated in his knowledge, passion, and voice of professional wrestling. It really saddens me the way McMahon has treated him because they would not be the company they are today without him. I have always and still do consider it an honor and privaledge to have heard him call so many memorable matches, epic moments good and bad. There will never be another Jim Ross. Rant done

    • Paul Jameson

      To add on this though, I wouldn’t ever WANT another JR. The one we had, still have if fortunate to hear him……is all we should have ever needed. Truly one of a kind.

      • Scott

        Here here!!!

  • Seth

    YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

  • rschell21

    Gotta love the Harper babble

  • Paul Jameson

    lively crowd tonight….

    • James Larochelle

      Montreal is a hot crowd. Wish I was there.

      • Paul Jameson

        said very few of Canada….ever. No i kid, I like the crowds Canada brings to these shows…..

        • James Larochelle

          Heh. I’m only two hours out from Mtl. Just didn’t have any buddies to go with.

  • Danny Philippi

    Rudy Charles officiating this tag team match tonight.

  • K!NG

    i cant understand french lol

    • Paul Jameson

      just imagine they are always saying We Want Bret……

  • ldb

    Will bray come out to interupt Bret since he is one of our heroes?

    • Paul Jameson

      DEP

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Refresh for the answer.

      • ldb

        k i enjoyed that one…haha.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I’m trying to incorporate more fun into these! So expect more memes and things from now on!

      • Paul Jameson

        you’re killing my tethering connection Dean….how dare you!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Hey guys just checking in. My Internet has been giving me hell over the past couple of weeks. I have been keeping up with the news so I have a fair idea of what’s going on . I hope you all enjoy tonight’s Raw

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hope you do too Navin! And praying to Freya for better Internet for you!

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Thanks Jesse.

  • David Jr.

    Since Raw is in Canada tonight, just want to say this. Yesterday was the 17 year anniversary to one of the best non big 4 WWE pay-per-view ever.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Bragging Rights ’09?

      • David Jr.

        it’s 2026? Did I fall asleep for a long time.

        • Mike McCarthy

          Lol I know that wasn’t 17 years ago but IMO that’s the best non-big 4 PPV.

          • David Jr.

            It was In Your House 16: Canadian Stampede. The best In Your House.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: After a delay we get taken to the match, Harper is in working an Uso on the ground. He picks him up and hits a european uppercut, two-count. Headlock on Uso and Uso fights to his feet but Harper throws him back to the ground and holds the headlock on him still. After about 35 seconds Uso fights to his feet, breaks out of the headlock, hits a couple shots to the face of Harper. But Harper pushes him into the ropes and Uso runs into a dropkick, Rowan is tagged in as we head back to USA.

  • Xavier

    Does anyone else in here have to keep refreshing their page to see new comments?

    • rschell21

      Yes Ive had that problem as well

    • Paul Jameson

      only when Jesse does him meme thing….Dean Ambrose melts the screen…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’ve had a couple of problems on Mobile, but none on PC.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Voldemort….

  • Seth

    Damn you Voldermort…YOU STRIKE AGAIN!

    • Seth

      If you Canadians do it again…I’ll start making Canadian jokes.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Today is a very famous/infamous day in wrestling history as well. Today marks the 18th Anniversary of Bash at the Beach 1996

    • Scott

      Wasnt that Hogan vs Flair?

      • Paul Jameson

        nope, the Hogan turn

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It was the Turn that shook the wrestling world… HH.

        • Scott

          I really hope Cena pulls something similar someday.

          • David Jr.

            I might be in a minority here, but I think a John Cena heel wouldn’t work.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ah… The Ultimate Turn…

    • Scott

      I re re’d there….that was the NWO birth

  • Paul Jameson

    funny…apparently in french….We Want Bret….is CM Punk….

  • James Larochelle

    Ugh…put them in the hunt…a win should MAKE them champs.

  • K!NG

    anyone remember Scott Steiner VS HHH at no way out 03 in Montreal it was the first time i really remember a guy who was heel being cheered against a guy who was playing face.

  • Paul Jameson

    well we all know 1 person that will NEVER be cheared in Canada no matter if heel or face…..

    • Scott

      ???

    • Scott

      Michaels?

      • Paul Jameson

        yeah, sure they made up…but HBK is still not cheered well in Montreal…

  • Xavier

    THis crowd is on fire, holy crap

  • Seth

    So you went from Voldermort chants…to going crazy into this match. You Canadians are bi-polar.

    • Paul Jameson

      but their meds need no insurance?!

      • Xavier

        Lol nice one

    • Mike McCarthy

      Almost as bad as Birmingham…

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    My cousin is going to pre order the Paul Heyman DVD for me this weekend. Its the first DVD set in a while that I am legitimately interested in. Well the documentary portion at the very least.

    • Paul Jameson

      it will be a must shelf item to have. good choice!

  • Paul Jameson

    this crowd is making this match even better than it is….

  • Seth

    Disgusting Powerbomb. Disgusting clothesline. Fan is me.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Great match, as per usual with these four.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    They tweaked the theme again…

    • K!NG

      they have more versions the wade barrett does

    • Paul Jameson

      and yet….Cesaro still has that lame one….

  • Dustyn

    Later this month WWE will be in Edmonton for a live event, and The Wyatt Family and Uso’s are both advertised. Hoping they have a match.

  • Mike McCarthy

    JBL: How would you know? It’s not like they have face paint on different sides of their faces!!

  • ldb

    I would liked to have seen the Berserker with those two once. HUSK!

    • David Jr.

      I approve of this comment.

  • Mike McCarthy

    But seriously, if you’re gonna do that finish tell the damn Usos not to wear the face paint.

  • Xavier

    WWE really going all out to sale this network. Free for a week.

  • Danny Philippi

    Waytt Family v Usos Tag Team Match: 6/10.
    Not as good as their match 8 days ago.

    • Paul Jameson

      but with crowd reaction, it felt more like an 8/10

  • Scott

    Next itll be a month of the network free

  • Dustyn

    I’m saying that Sandow will appear as “The Mountie” tonight. Anyone else he could be?

    • Paul Jameson

      Dudley Do Right

      • Dustyn

        I see what you did there lol! I had to think for a minute!

    • Kev

      Earl hebner

    • Mike McCarthy

      A bear wearing a goalie mask…

    • Kanewty

      Pat Patterson as he’s from Montreal I believe, not likely but possible

    • Simon Veitch

      Come out as HBK, instant heat!

  • Mr.V

    Did they edit out the “you ufcked up” chant??

  • Xavier

    I love the network. I’m only issue with it is that it doesn’t have every single RAW, Nitro, Smackdown etc etc but other then that it’s well worth the money

    • K!NG

      yeah most of the good raw replays are on at like 9 and 10 AM

    • Paul Jameson

      IF they ever put Nitro on there, I will pay any amount they ask me too….I’m still enjoying what I have on the network now!….but with Nitro on it, I’m golden.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Agreed, lately I’ve had some lag issues but overall I’m surprised they have to try so hard to sell subscriptions.

      • Xavier

        Same here, I have some lag problems on my PC but it runs like a well oiled machine on my HTC though

    • Scott

      They REALLY need to include that! Its like watching seasons of a TV show. Plus you get the whole story!

      • Xavier

        Agreed

  • David Jr.

    Wow a Smackdown main event rematch on Raw. How original, they haven’t done this since, what last week.

  • Xavier

    I hope Sandow appears as Shawn Michaels tonight

    • K!NG

      or earl hebner

    • Jesse Sherwood

      YES!!!!

    • rschell21

      There’s your Bret Hart segment

      • Xavier

        LMAO

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, the Authority isn’t at Raw? No wonder Roman opened the show…

    • Paul Jameson

      Aaaaand Jesse apparently muted Cole the first 4 times he said the Authority wasn’t here tonight lol

      • ldb

        Not Jesse’s fault he thought it was how to use the WWE app plug.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I approve of this!

          • Paul Jameson

            I always just think he’s Cole-capping something that just happened 10 minutes ago, so I really can’t blame you either.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Lol, I did. I have an automatic Cole filter that makes his voice sound like JR in my head.

  • Seth

    Subtle Kane is awesome.

  • ldb

    Seth’s hair always makes me think of Two Face.

    • Seth

      Now I’m starting to visualize him doing heelish things in twos.

  • Xavier

    Is Seth Rollins being Triple H’s pet project the beginning of another Orton face turn?

    • Paul Jameson

      Orton doesn’t have to necessarily be face to be against HHH….he could be mixed lol

    • Bob’s Diner

      Please yes! I’m dying for Orton vs HHH for the 100th time.
      Though in fairness, perhaps with Orton as the face he might finally beat him! :-)

      • Xavier

        Orton is really hurting right now. His stock as dropped a lot since he came out of the whole Authority/Bryan angle. He should take off for a few months to give fans a chance too miss him because right now it’s just not there with him. Feels like a complete afterthought

        • Bob’s Diner

          Yeah I feel like he’s been treated like an afterthought all year. He certainly was the big loser of that angle

  • Danny Philippi

    Guess Triple H and Stephanie have the case of the limber tail tonight. Or are they negotiating with “Plan B”?

    • Paul Jameson

      wouldn’t this be plan E or F? I’ve lost count…

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Todd/Tom welcomes us and tells us Harper & Rowan are the #1 contenders. He then welcomes Nikki Bella, who’s match is next. She wishes they could have a straight up match 1v1, but she’s had some issues lately and she doesn’t know exactly how she’s going to win. But she’s gonna give it all she’s got and if she can stick to what Nikki can do she can win.

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      I don’t have the app but I think you are referring to Tom Phillips. He is one of the commentators currently on NXT, Main Event and Superstars too I think.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I know lol I just call him Todd/Tom because I hate him.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Damn internet is acting up again. Enjoy the rest of Raw guys. I will keep in touch when I can. Take care and enjoy the rest of tonight.

    • Xavier

      You too bro

  • Paul Jameson

    1 bella just isn’t as good as 2 bellas….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    One arm behind their backs? BAKA!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Alicia isn’t gonna let the ref tie her hand…SPOILER!

  • ldb

    How to make a Diva’s match worse? Lets tie one hand behind their back.

  • Tom Mayer

    Rip Alicia fox’s push I guess :p

  • Scott

    HAHAHAHA! My wife just hollared to me frommthe kitchen….”God damn! These two are wrestling each other every week!” Hahahaha

  • Paul Jameson

    god man..tie faster….this is live TV

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I think Nikki is enjoying this…

    • Paul Jameson

      not as much as Alicia…..

  • Scott

    Crowd is dead!!!

  • James Larochelle

    I wonder if the Authority is behind this stip…because the announcer didn’t just say it was on ttheir order.

    • Paul Jameson

      yeah they did….they said it before the match.

      • James Larochelle

        I know…I’m commenting on Cole’s not paying attention

        • Paul Jameson

          i see

  • Seth

    Considering what’s happened…I really don’t think Nikki should smile at all about anything.

  • Xavier

    What a way to kill momentum to a great start

  • David Jr.

    Never give up Never Surrender, Michael Cole quoting a great movie.

    • Paul Jameson

      Leave it to Cole to make me not want to watch Galaxy Quest ever again…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BORING chants!

    • Seth

      I would MUCH RATHER hear that chant than…a certain other one…because I agree with their assessment.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Holy crap, Alicia’s being really reckless here…

    • Paul Jameson

      cause she is normally in control?!

      • Mike McCarthy

        A workers safety is much higher priority than getting a character over.

        • Mike McCarthy

          Especially when that worker only has one arm to protect themselves.

  • Dustyn

    Is Nikki wearing Cena wrist bands?

    • Paul Jameson

      yeah, I think so…turned inside out so we can’t see the writing?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep. AJ wore Voldemort ones last week.

    • Scott

      I think so………

  • Danny Philippi

    This is why there should be only one diva segment per Raw and it should feature the Diva’s title.
    This match: Incomplete grade.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’m gonna rewind once this is over but it looked like Alicia kicked her in the face.

  • K!NG

    red bull it gives u wings !!!!

  • Xavier

    What is this match suppose to accomplish?

    • James Larochelle

      Bore us to make whoever’s next look golden…I say it’s Rusev. Actually I don’t know how Rusev would play in Montreal.

      • James Larochelle

        Hey I got it right.

  • Scott

    Ok…..im really over this Alicia Fox gimmick

    • David F

      I bet Dunn is pushing this gimmick and thinks its funny

  • Paul Jameson

    Alicia has a Red Bull Bash….

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Alicia 3:16 says I just whipped your ass?

    • Xavier

      LOL

    • Paul Jameson

      if she becomes the Stone Cold Fox….I quit

    • ldb

      are you sure it doesn’t say ” I just stole your crown”

  • Xavier

    Geez that was harsh

  • BlackLotus

    what in the ninth circle of hell did i just see?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Alicia Fox… Enough said.

      • Seth

        No. You witness…what some people in the office thought…was humor…

        That entire segment is a FML entry waiting to happen…

  • Seth

    I never thought I could hate Red Bull anymore…but what in the hell was that? Who thought this was even a remotely decent idea? It was more flat than most of my jokes.

  • Scott

    Call me crazy but I hope we get to see Swagger and Rusev throw down a bit tonight!

    • Paul Jameson

      ok crazy…lol

      • David F

        but we are in Canada bizzaro world

    • ldb

      If they do I want someone to run the countdown to concussion clock.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Already on it!

      • Paul Jameson

        actually…I don’t think I’d mind a concussion on that match….

    • Jesse Sherwood

      WE THE PEOPLE!!!

      • ldb

        I just watched the Lex slam on Yoko and made me actually wish they would run with this one a while.

  • Bryan

    Hahaha…why is there randomly a container full of drinks under the ring???

  • Danny Philippi

    Alicia Fox vs. a broom stick > Nikki Bella vs. … anybody.

    • Paul Jameson

      i can’t agree there. Nikki really has improved over her time.

      • Danny Philippi

        You mean Nikki has enhanced herself. Right? LOL

        • Paul Jameson

          Hey…..with enhancement….came the torture rack wanna be move….so whatever helps….

      • Mike McCarthy

        I agree with Paul, though Brie is definitely better. Both have shown great strides with their in-ring work.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom welcomes Rob Van Damn, he will face Rusev next. He asks what his game plan is. He says he’s wrestling someone who doesn’t have the same unorthodox as him, but he’s used to that. The bigger they are the harder you gotta kick him in the face. He likes his odds, but instead of giving him his strategy let’s assume RVD will be flying, kicking, striking from above, striking from below. No matter what he does, you’re gonna see it next.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Someone called Rusev next! 500 points!

  • Seth

    BAD FLAG WAVING ALERT! DAMMIT!

  • Mike McCarthy

    I rewinded and Alicia definitely kicked Nikki in the jaw, fortunately that’s not a concussion sweetspot.

    • Paul Jameson

      Alicia did train with Swaggs here and there….lol

  • Paul Jameson

    dear me…Putin getting cheers in Canada…….I’m quitting life…

  • K!NG

    RVD must love being canada….

  • CJ Blaze

    RVD vs Rusev… this could be hard to watch

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Looking good early.

      • CJ Blaze

        True

    • Paul Jameson

      if you’re an RVD fan….yes…it can be

    • ldb

      RVD has had better matches lately

    • Seth

      Well…Rusev isn’t bad at kicking somebody’s ass and RVD’s usually okay enough at getting his ass kicked. I think this can be okay.

      • CJ Blaze

        I will say, it’s going better than I thought.

  • Scott

    What are they singing?

    • Seth

      The Soccer or the El Generico OLE.

  • K!NG

    sounds like a soccer crowd

  • Xavier

    The good ol’ soccer chant

    • James Larochelle

      Montreal sings that all the time during Canadiens hockey games.

  • Scott

    Loving the soccer chant!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    …..so we get an interview in the middle of the match?

    • Paul Jameson

      hey…a Zeb promo during a Rusev match is approved…WE THE PEOPLE

      • Mike McCarthy

        But not necessarily a way to get somebody over, WWE Creative FTW!

        • Paul Jameson

          whats this…..get someone over you speak….it doesn’t translate in mother russian….

  • Paul Jameson

    Anyone ever see the movie Bloodsport?! I always think of that movie during a Rusev match…..

    • K!NG

      lol i love that movie

      • Paul Jameson

        And we do technically have a Van Dam in this match lol

        • K!NG

          i was just thinking that haha

  • Jesse Sherwood

    RV-Jobber

  • Danny Philippi

    Imagine Swagger saving RVD. Pot and Kettle.

    • David Jr.

      They can become Kronik 2014.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think I know why RVD’s facing Rusev…..maybe they bring back Kozlov and do High Times vs. The Russian Federation…lmao

    • Kanewty

      I don’t think swagger can get into Canada due to that arrest a couple years ago, that’s my guess

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It wouldn’t surprise me. R-Truth has similar issues.

  • James Larochelle

    Why does Rusev make me think of John Belushi?

    • Paul Jameson

      ……meets ming the barbarian…..

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rusev’s biggest challenge yet, and he won decidedly. RVD actually put up a good fight.

    • Paul Jameson

      really? that was a bigger challange than Big E at the PPV?!?! lol

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Rusev looked in peril at a few different moments and was not on the offensive the entire match. Plus, former world champion.

        • Paul Jameson

          I was Mizzing you…..really?!…..really?……really?

  • Danny Philippi

    Rusev vs. RVD: 4/10.
    Enhancement match for Rusev; RVD one step above the Brooklyn Brawler. Or Zach Ryder.

    • Paul Jameson

      Duke the Dumpster Drosey…….

  • Xavier

    Anyone else think we’ll get Rusev/Big Show at some point?

    • ldb

      yeah they love to job show to the next big powerhouse eventually.

      • Xavier

        That’s what I was thinking as well

    • Seth

      I think Rusev vs Henry makes a little more sense for the angle they’re going with.

    • Avalanchian

      I’ve wanted Show or Henry against Rusev

  • Scott

    No Swags? Hmm….

    • Paul Jameson

      prolly couldn’t cross the border like someone said below lol

      • Scott

        Aaaaahhhh makes sense

      • Xavier

        This is why Swagger shouldn’t be on the roster let alone a feud

  • Paul Jameson

    This just in : “Khali v Rusev for SummerSlam” ah how I LOVE dirt sheets…

    • Scott

      Id rather watch paint dry

    • Jesse Sherwood

      *Hands Paul a gun* Kill me. NOW.

      • Paul Jameson

        No no…you have to shoot me first lol

        • Jesse Sherwood

          *Shoots Paul in the foot* You didn’t say where…

          • Paul Jameson

            will that get me discharged from having to see that match?! even though it isn’t true lol

          • David Jr.

            So who shot first? Who’s Han and who’s Greedo?

      • Seth

        *Hands Jesse an evoker* …there’s another way.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          PERSONA!

          • Seth

            I really can’t wait for Persona Q on the 3DS and Persona 5 on the PS3…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Already have Q and Ultimax preordered so I can get a full set of the Tarot cards.

          • Seth

            You’re going to turn into Igor with that huge nose.

    • Mike McCarthy

      That’d be more fitting as a WWE Superstars dark match…

  • Scott

    Wait wait wait….are they advertising MITB on the network now during Raw? Call me crazy but are they telling people to tune out? Haha

    • Paul Jameson

      if it gets people to sign up for the network, I don’t think they care at this point…..

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Todd/Tom welcomes us and tells us to us the hashtag #WWEApp to tell them your favorite Monday Night War moment. The interesting part here was at the beginning he welcomes new users watching via the WWE Network Free Trial. Implying that the Second Screen is exclusive to the WWE Network….does anybody know if this is true?

    • Paul Jameson

      its not even on the network…..the second screen is App only……fail spot! lol

      • Mike McCarthy

        That’s what I thought, I don’t know what was up with that.

  • Danny Philippi

    Next 4 Monday Night Raw locations:
    7/14: Richmond, VA
    7/21: Miami, FL
    7/28: Houston, TX
    8/4: Austin, TX

    • Mike McCarthy

      Miami and Houston are usually hot crowds.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ah, the Texas Summer Tour tapings…

    • Paul Jameson

      great so we go from the Rocks favorite of MI a MI, to Bookah’s Houston…to a hopeful eventful Austin Texas RAW!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Wait…that was Jamie Noble?!?

    • Paul Jameson

      yeah we were naming all the people involved earlier lol….

  • Scott

    Come on Cole?!?!? Big Red Demon? Its Big Red Machine!!!!

  • Seth

    It’s a standing…silence.

  • ldb

    That’s the weakest response orton has got in some time isn’t it?

    • Paul Jameson

      they are saving it for his opponent….

  • Danny Philippi

    AND. The. Crowd. Goes. MILD.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Orton gets one of the most apathetic reactions in WWE. Only Axel and ADR out pace him.

  • K!NG

    and the crowd is coming unglued….

  • ldb

    Dean looks like a guy from the bar that ‘s looking for the guy talking bad about his woman.

    • Paul Jameson

      everytime I see him the phrase “What you say about my momma” comes to mind….

    • Scott

      I like his look. No frills, no BS, 100% insanity!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Let’s go Ambrose! chants!

    • Paul Jameson

      followed by Let’s go O…..no I couldn’t even finish that…it wasn’t there….

  • Xavier

    Orton feels so unimportant right now, even more so then he did in 2012. A few months off of TV would do his character a lot of good right now

    • Jesse Sherwood

      A few months off in 2012 hurt him worse. He came back to near silence and had to be mostly on SD so they could pipe in a reaction.

      • Paul Jameson

        yeah, but you and I both know…if he ran in as a face and save Bryan or Reigns or something, that would change…..Orton can get rubbed on (sorry, I so don’t mean it like that)

        • Seth

          That’s what she said.

      • Xavier

        True, him feuding with Kane though probably didn’t help that. I miss the Orton from 07-09

    • ldb

      this whiny weak heel orton has been horrible.

      • Xavier

        Agreed. I miss the Orton from 07-09

        • Paul Jameson

          the true legend killer/viper

    • Paul Jameson

      honestly….5 month hiatus and then show up around RR time….would do him good body and mind I’m sure.

      • Xavier

        That could work, he needs to something ASAP because he’s just not clicking with the crowd right now in anyway.

  • Dustyn

    This Friday marks the 7 year (and one month) anniversary of the infamous Vice McMahon limo explosion.

    • Xavier

      That would of been a great angle

  • Danny Philippi

    ROPE RAKE! 10,000 points!

    • ldb

      toss in a finger nail rake to the back, and the eye poke for the tri-fecta

      • Paul Jameson

        ah…the WCW main event musthave!

  • ldb

    I can’t remember the last time i saw an face drag down the ropes. Love it.

    • Seth

      Think Dean has thrown it every now and then. He threw it more as a heel because it’s a jerk thing to do.

    • Paul Jameson

      right? i mean I saw it last night watching old ppvs…but the throwback is nice.

  • Paul Jameson

    Gumbercules….I love that guy!

  • Scott

    I think The Rock was miscast as Hercules

    • ldb

      yeah, makes me think of John Wayne as Genghis khan

    • Mike McCarthy

      He got ripped for that role, he definitely looks the part. It’s gonna be great.

      • Scott

        Its more that he looks like a Barbarian like Conan than Hercules “The Son of a God”

      • Gary Robert

        He’s been ripped. He’s the only wrestler who got bigger after leaving the business. Its insane.

  • Danny Philippi

    Randy Orton needs a character transplant like the Montreal Canadiens need a capable net protector.

    • James Larochelle

      Don’t believe in Price?

      • Danny Philippi

        Simply put, he is not a top 5 NHL goaltender right now.

        • Avalanchian

          He’s probably a top 5 from last season. Also a gold medal goaltender who did have some make some key saves at times. Especially against the US.

    • ldb

      eh, dont talk aboot Canadian hockey

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We’re thrown right into action as Ambrose whip Orton into the barricade then hits a side russian leg sweep into the barricade. Ambrose picks up Orton and throws him into the ring but Orton tolls out the other end, Ambrose follows but Orton whips him bad shoulder first into the steps. He picks him up and throws him into the opposite steps, Orton throws Ambrose back into the ring, panders to the crowd then enters the ring and puts Ambrose in an armlock. “Let’s go Ambrose” chants. Ambrose fights out and pushes Orton into the rope but Orton plants Ambrose on his back and panders to the crowd again.

  • Seth

    Randy still has a great dropkick.

    • Xavier

      Best in the business by far

  • K!NG

    Aggressive randy orton is the one we all love.

  • Danny Philippi

    Randy Orton Dropkick: 15 points.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Poll: “Who is more likely to ruin Seth Rollins’ plans of successfully cashing in his Money in the Bank contract?”
    Dean Ambrose 83%
    John Cena 17%

  • ldb

    WHOOOO!

  • Seth

    WOOOOOOOO!

  • ldb

    Orton hears a WHOOOOOO!

  • Danny Philippi

    Figure Four Leg Lock: 1,600 points. WOOOO!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ambrose with a Figure 4!!!

    • Seth

      and bending Randy’s hand back big time. What a mean son of a you know what.

  • CJ Blaze

    What would you think of Ric Flair managing Ambrose?

  • K!NG

    I wish someone would bring back terry funks spinning toe hold lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    ….wait…….what?

  • Scott

    Submission mark out of the night is yet to come….Walls of Jericho! Would be awesome if its a full on Lion Tamer!

    • David Jr.

      He could put the Lion Tamer on the Miz. so its possible.

  • Danny Philippi

    Ambrose botch: 7,000 points.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Missed it. What did he botch?

      • Mike McCarthy

        Ambrose jumped off the turnbuckle at Orton, Orton wasn’t paying attention and Ambrose ran into Orton and Orton just stood there.

    • Seth

      I think that was on Randy for not turning around and remembering it because Ambrose was barking at him to turn around.

  • Xavier

    This match hasn’t been as good as I thought it would so far

  • Guest

    I think Orton was supposed to catch him in mid air with the dropkick

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ambrose got bleeped!

    • Paul Jameson

      ordid the fans too….?

  • Seth

    Ambrose just said a no no word.

  • Tom Mayer

    Orton can put on a stellar match with the right opponents

    • Jesse Sherwood

      No one questions Orton’s abilities, but his crowd connection isn’t there anymore.

  • Danny Philippi

    DDT to the Floor: 8,500 points.

  • K!NG

    RKO!!

  • Paul Jameson

    good night ambrose….for now….

  • ldb

    has ambrose won a match since the sheild broke?

  • Xavier

    I truly think the RKO is the greatest finisher in wrestling, possibly ever.

    • K!NG

      youtube the RKO on the beach if you havent seen it… this guy does it better then orton i think

    • David Jr.

      I prefer the Diamond Cutter.

      • Paul Jameson

        BANG

    • Scott

      Rehash of The Diamond Cutter. Although Ortons version is better. Has more pop and snap to it

      • David Jr.

        DDP told Randy Orton to use it.

  • Scott

    And the crowd is not happy

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I missed it on the first go around, but on the Ambrose botch, the crowd chanted an old favorite! You F***** Up!

    • Paul Jameson

      Yup yup! lol

    • Scott

      What did Ambrose botch? I missed it

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Came off the top and was supposed to be met with a dropkick from Orton, but Orton was turned around.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cena is making me sick with how he is wearing the belts.

    • K!NG

      thats how gangsta’s were there chains… n he is the leader of the chain gang

      • Scott

        Dr of Thuganomics and what not!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I don’t care. Show some respect for them by wearing them properly or shouldering them. They are the biggest titles in this business.

        • Paul Jameson

          at least he’s carrying them….when Lesnar wins we’ll have Heyman carrying them gosh know how….

        • K!NG

          steve austin use to basically drag his belt down the aisle same with the rock i hardly seen them shoulder them or carry them on there shoulder lol

          • Xavier

            Exactly.

          • David Jr.

            Didn’t ABA Undertaker use to wear the Undisputed Championship around his neck?

          • Paul Jameson

            yup…on the bike

          • Xavier

            Yeah

    • Paul Jameson

      is there really ANY good way to carry those darn things though? I mean D Bry needed surgery just carrying those darn things…

    • Xavier

      Why?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Maybe I’m too old school, but I find it disrespectful to carry the top titles in the industry like a scarf. Hold it over the shoulder or wear it around the waist. Don’t treat it like a glorified piece of bling or a prop.

        • Xavier

          Since when is that disrespectful though, we both know the amount of respect Cena has for this business. Cena is doing his own thing right now, and the belts are a prop.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Like I said, it may be my old school mentality. But back in the territory days, if you held a belt like that, you wouldn’t have it too much longer. The fans would call for your head.

    • ldb

      Ric Flair know the proper way to wear the belt.

    • James Larochelle

      They need to drop the second belt then…

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I agree. But I’ve been saying that since the merger.

  • Danny Philippi

    Orton vs. Ambrose: 7/10.
    With the exception of the botched spot, very solid match. Made Ambrose better than he is due to Orton’s experience. Orton winning keeps him a threat walking out of Battleground WWE Champion.

  • Seth

    I cannot take anything John says seriously there when he has the belts like that.

    • David Jr.

      It’s just the spirit of a dragon in him. An Ultimo Dragon.

  • Mike McCarthy

    BREAKING NEWS: Dolph Ziggler will face Alberto Del Rio in a #1 Contenders match for the United States Championship. Another fast Ziggler promo.

    • Paul Jameson

      gah…on Paper Ziggler should win…but they probably wanna go Sheamo v ADR for the title….

    • ldb

      del rio in under 4 minutes.

    • Danny Philippi

      Put me down for a Del Rio win. I’ll wager a $10 gift card to Primo Hoagie.

      • David F

        Crowd will pop big for Ziggy and crickets for ADR like always

  • K!NG

    Ziggler has had one of the best reactions i have heard all night

  • Paul Jameson

    Aaaaand SR comes out and helps Ziggler lol…..

  • Scott

    Something tells me Del Rio wins so Ziggler can feud with Fanboredom

    • Paul Jameson

      and ADR with Sheamo…

  • K!NG

    anyone read the piece on wwe.com where Ziggler said Del Rio was his favorite opponent

    • Xavier

      Didn’t get a chance to check it out but Ziggler/Del Rio do have really good chemistry

    • Jesse Sherwood

      HUH?!?!

      • K!NG

        Yeah like xavier said they have really good in ring chemistry…. ziggler said they dont get along backstage though

        • Jesse Sherwood

          ADR doesn’t really get along with anyone now. They fired his only friend!

          • Xavier

            Didn’t Sin Cara pull a gun on him backstage when they were both still in AAA?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            If I remember right, that was Hunico and Mystico.

    • CJ Blaze

      Yep, that’s what it said

    • David Jr.

      Yes I did, I was shocked.

      • K!NG

        not that it comes as a surprise to me but sheamus was on there for a few guys as well

        • David Jr.

          I know Barrett and Daniel Bryan picked Sheamus. Barrett also picked Kofi too.

  • Seth

    That is a giant zebra stripe 2. It’s so huge.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Oh wow, the match will take place on Main Event, that makes me think Ziggler will win.

  • K!NG

    Ouch!!!

  • Paul Jameson

    well that was interesting…..

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ADR vs. Ziggler? No whammies…

    • Seth

      *Feathers and tar land all over you after you land on a double whammy*

    • David Jr.

      BIG BUCKS!

  • Mike McCarthy

    LMAO Fandango saying excellent

    • Paul Jameson

      He’s coming off as a creepy Mr Burns……lol excellent…..excellent….

  • Danny Philippi

    This situation (ADR vs. Ziggler with Fandango at ringside) would’ve been intriguing … last year. Now, it’s filler for a three-hour RAW.

  • Scott

    Fandango is The Fonz of the WWE…….just when you thought you heard it all

    • Paul Jameson

      if the fonz was a cowboy stripper…yes he would

    • Jesse Sherwood

      How long until he jumps a shark?

  • Mike McCarthy

    This isn’t a bad match, but it feels like they’re trying to squeeze to much into their time limit.

  • Seth

    Was that…really necessary? The music playing like that and a distraction like that makes Dolph look…even more like an idiot.

  • Mike McCarthy

    AND THE CROWD doesn’t care whatsoever

  • Avalanchian

    Boooooooring and predictable

  • Tom Mayer

    That was the best distraction they could come up with for Ziggler?

  • ldb

    fandangoing in Montreal

  • Scott

    Yes JBL lets go to commercial!!!!

  • Paul Jameson

    Some one tell Magic Mike Jr that he’s irrelevant now?!

  • David Jr.

    So we are going to have Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio 200,987,134,243.

  • Danny Philippi

    ADR vs. Ziggler: 5/10.
    Commentating overshadowed the 100th installment of the ADR/Ziggler rivalry.

  • Mike McCarthy

    STARDUST

  • Seth

    Okay…rant time. This actually pisses me off because WWE would prioritize someone doing a freaking dance over a number one contendership match for a championship. Is it any freak’n wonder that the damn belts aren’t worth their weight in tin? You’re prioritizing things incorrectly…you made the person winning look like an idiot for wanting the belt, you made the person losing look like a total buffoon for losing to that distraction…and the person dancing is just a complete and utter clown. I HATE THIS with a passion.

  • K!NG

    Written in the stars…. is maven returning ?

    • Tom Mayer

      Nah he has a career now on one of those home shopping networks..someone must’ve sent in a video of him with simon dean

  • Paul Jameson

    Back to the Future references FTW

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Cody KILLS IT!

  • Avalanchian

    Rhodedust!

  • Seth

    More of the Dust and Dust connection please. If you tell me they’re going to talk for three hours…just ake my money now! JUST TAKE IT!

  • Paul Jameson

    So can we repackage Eden and call her PixieDust?!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      YES!!! But only if Dusty becomes Oldust!

      • Paul Jameson

        No no…I already named him…..lets see it was GoldDust, StarDust, PixieDust, and AngelDust

    • David F

      Yes! Yes! Yes! #dust3

    • K!NG

      hopefully they dont rename her angel

      • Paul Jameson

        yeah I made that reference for older Dusty Rhodes to be AngelDust……

        • David Jr.

          I vote for SawDust.

          • Paul Jameson

            Or BoneDust

          • K!NG

            or DreamDust

  • Mr.V

    Wow that’s what happens when a character is built up by saying his name. No material whatsoever this guy …..

  • K!NG

    I love the work cody rhodes does… i really hope they put his wife with him as a manger turn him heel and push him to the moon the kid makes everything he does look like GOLD!

  • ldb

    Cody did amazing with this gimmick in no time flat. Its already over big to me. Him an Goldy are well Golden

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Todd/Tom welcomes Sheamus, as everyone knows by now he’ll face Del Rio tomorrow night. But he wants to talk about Battleground, he’s held every singles title except one…. Cena’s walking around with two titles but now Sheamus wants two. That’s why he’s entering the Battleground Battle Royale for the Intercontinental Championship.

  • Danny Philippi

    Can’t wait for Bret “Hitman” Hart. He was the superstar of the 1990′s in my book.

    • Paul Jameson

      what could have been had Goldberg never happened……

  • James Larochelle

    So what are the odds RhodesDust face Rybaxel again?

    • ldb

      probably a 122 on a scale of 1 to 10

    • Mike McCarthy

      Very likely, what we should be talking about is what are the odds they’ll still be facing each other come 2015…..and the odds of that are 2 to 1.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      1-1 odds.

    • David Jr.

      The only other heel tag team is Wyatts and they already fought.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        They could always pair Heath Slater with some random heel…

  • Scott

    Why is he still on TV?

  • Xavier

    I hope Sandow interrupts Bret Hart dressed as Shawn Michaels

    • Avalanchian

      You win!

  • Scott

    VERY CLASSY FROM LAWLER!!

  • Paul Jameson

    Everytime I see Summer Rae I wanna scream at her “BREATHE” you don’t normally look like that…just breathe!

    • Mike McCarthy

      Well the camera adds ten pounds, what’s she supposed to do? Allow oxygen to enter her body? Pshh what is this, 1960?

  • K!NG

    hopefully its the midget version of brett hbk had lol

  • Scott

    HUGE POP FOR HART! WELL DESERVED!

  • Xavier

    Bring back the 90s theme

  • Mike McCarthy

    There’s a guy in the front row wearing a Bret screwed Bret shirt…..takes a lot of balls to do something like that..

    • Seth

      He’s the biggest heel in the building.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bret is a legend. Shame his career was cut short.

    • David Jr.

      It’s even more a shame that Vince couldn’t someway have kept him and that he ever fought in WCW. If there ever should have been a WWF lifer, it’s Bret Hart.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Bret’s bloated contract and moral values at the time are what led to things going the way they did. Bret should have found a way to renegotiate with VKM for a more beneficial rate for WWE.

        • David Jr.

          I agree. Also, WCW didn’t know what to do with Bret Hart.

  • Mike McCarthy

    YES!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    There he is!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    SANDOW AS BRET!!!

  • Tom Mayer

    Lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    THE ONLY THING THAT COULD’VE MADE THIS BETTER

  • K!NG

    i used to be such a brett hart fan that when i wrestled i would make my parents buy me a black and pink singlet

  • Scott

    CROSSING MY FINGERS FOR A SHARPSHOOTER!!!!!! THATS GOTTA BE WORTH 50,000 POINTS!

  • Xavier

    LMAO here we go

  • Mike McCarthy

    He’s got a gray wig, I’m loving this.

  • Seth

    This is straight out of Memphis and working like a charm. This is wicked fun.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You know King had a hand in this segment!

      • Seth

        Got some really good heat too.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And he addressed the conspiracy!!! That takes cajones!

  • K!NG

    punching is his strong suit just ask Vince

    • Mike McCarthy

      I thought spitting was.

      • K!NG

        i guess he punched vince when they got back into the locker room that night after match.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yeah, if you saw Wrestling With Shadows, apparently Bret got physical with a few people that night.

      • Tom Mayer

        Air drawing letters IMO

  • Avalanchian

    Hope Sheamus puts Sandow in the sharpshooter

    • Mike McCarthy

      Sheamus uses the cloverleaf, very very similar.

  • CJ Blaze

    I remember when Sheamus vs. Sandow was worth watching last year…

  • Danny Philippi

    Who does Sandow dress as next week as Raw is from Richmond.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Robert E. Lee.

    • Paul Jameson

      thomas jefferson…..

    • K!NG

      Nothing beats Rtruth coming out in a confederate uniform

      • Paul Jameson

        at least that day he knew WHERE he was….lol

  • Xavier

    I was hoping he’d dress up as HBK but oh well

  • K!NG

    Vintage sandhart

  • Seth

    JBL: I can’t wait for him to be the King in Memphis.

    Neither can I…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Or come out as Dutch if he is feuding with Swagger or, and it’s a stretch since he is on his retirement tour, but Superstar Bill Dundee.

      • Seth

        YES!

  • Paul Jameson

    mandible claw?!?!?!

  • Xavier

    Sheamus is molded from the old school, he literally beats the hell out of his opponents.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I think it’s the only reason his character hasn’t gone stale yet, he’s just fun to watch.

    • K!NG

      He is awesome and he works well with everyone u put him in the ring with

  • Danny Philippi

    Sheamus vs. Bret “Damien Sandow” Hart: 3/10.
    Read my comments from last match and apply here.

  • ldb

    Sheamus is making the US Title mean something again. Thats’ what we need for the Intercontinental Title.

  • K!NG

    I swear i must like wrestlers who kick guys heads off hbk is my all time favorite and sheamus is my current favorite

  • Scott

    Miz looks like such a tool

    • Seth

      #Heel

    • Xavier

      Lol. That’s what made so great in 2010

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Miz apparently needs a script in his hand to remember his lines.

    • ldb

      Rock wrote his on his hand didn’t hand

  • Mike McCarthy

    Miz gets fanmail from the third Uso……

    • Mike McCarthy

      Oh wait, he said Russo…awkward

      • David Jr.

        My brother thought he said Uso, too.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, did Miz just say Johnny Russo? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    • Seth

      You know what… *bleep* this…NOT THE NAME RUSSO!…wait…dammit! I gave YOU my evoker. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        *Tosses it back* I have Margaret’s compendium… I don’t need toys like that.

        • Seth

          …You’re daring me to summon Orpheus Telos aren’t you?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Izangi-no-Okami…

  • K!NG

    is johnny russo vinces son

    • Jesse Sherwood

      With a letter like that, I’m betting so!

  • Scott

    Marine 4 franchise? A sequel will have its own sequels? Anyways….looking forward to some “you still got it” chants for Jericho only for him to shout back “i never lost it baby!!!”

  • Dustyn

    Random note. I was looking on the Levis Stadium website just now, and for the WM31 event, Batista, Lesnar, and The Rock are the ones featured. Interesting.

  • ldb

    Marine 4 named for the same amount of people wanting to buy it.

  • David Jr.

    Where does the Marine Franchise rank among movie franchises? I rank it right below Air Buddies franchise.

    • ldb

      I put it just above the 3 ninjas

      • Paul Jameson

        Nah 3 ninjas goes higher…it had Hogan in one of em…

        • Xavier

          Lol I remember that. Wasn’t that one at a theme park or something?

          • David Jr.

            Yes, 3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain. With the main villian being Loni Anderson, Burt Reynold’s ex-wife.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Apparently “Free Birds” got renewed for a sequel so I think it’s a tie for worst franchise ever.

    • Gary Robert

      Air Buddies, lol

  • CJ Blaze

    It may be all for the preview week, but I’m excited about watching a lot of those shows this week!

  • Danny Philippi

    I thought Jerry’s favorite word was PUPPIES. Swerve!

    • Seth

      I guess there’s a difference between the favorite thing and the favorite word?

  • Guest

    Is Ambrose kept losing is because he’s dating a WWE Diva?

  • Rayner Chee-bai

    Is Ambrose kept losing because he’s dating a WWE Diva?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I haven’t heard anything like that.

      • Rayner Chee-bai

        Out of curiosity . Just like Nick Mitchell of Spirit Squad dated Torrie Wilson and never got a chance to shine since. Really bad if Ambrose dating Young and got buried now…

  • K!NG

    At least when the miz came back they actually changed his character

  • Danny Philippi

    Thought Orton got no reaction. Miz walks out and the crowd goes deaf.

    • K!NG

      no one boo’s the heels anymore lol

      • ldb

        only if they are worth booing.

      • Paul Jameson

        is that what I’ve been doing wrong all this time?! man…..I thought i was supposed to cheer them when in bizzaro world….

        • K!NG

          only in canada and england u cheer the heels

          • Paul Jameson

            man…makes me wonder what they do in India…..

          • K!NG

            worship the great khali like buddha

          • Paul Jameson

            and I set up the ball…all for you to SPIKE….nice!

          • David Jr.

            It’s even more bizarre. They cheer for Great Khali.

          • Paul Jameson

            sorry…K!NG beat ya to it….

  • Scott

    Jericho is showing a little bit of rust but itll go away quickly

    • Avalanchian

      not before Bray shows up

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye, a year off will do that to you.

    • Paul Jameson

      I’d take a Rusty Y2J over a completely fresh and ready half the roster any day….

      • Scott

        I agree!!

  • James Larochelle

    Bloody ear

  • Xavier

    It’s funny hearing JBL kiss Miz’s ass after all those years were he tried to completely bury him when they were both on Smackdown

  • Mike McCarthy

    FIGURE 4!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ambrose did it better.

      • Paul Jameson

        aye….and his WOOOOOs were better too from the crowd…

  • Seth

    Miz’s figure four does nothing for me.

    • Paul Jameson

      or the opponent…

    • Xavier

      Ambrose’s wasn’t much better to be fair though

      • Seth

        The other thing is…once you’ve already seen it once in the show…it isn’t smart at all to do something already seen.

        • Xavier

          Exactly

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Y2J locked that Walls in DEEP!

    • Paul Jameson

      I’d say how deep….but you’d have to get Kendra to slap me on the back of the head….

  • Danny Philippi

    DEP!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    DEP!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Miz taps like a girl

  • Seth

    DEP!

  • Scott

    DEP!

  • Scott

    That very wing Bray? Lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bray is killing it on the mic against Y2J!!!

  • Xavier

    Where are the Usos when you need them lol

  • James

    Miz has a fan? Johnny Russo, maybe he is related to Vince Russo?

  • Scott

    The transitions were off at the end or something. It didnt flow well

  • Paul Jameson

    Ok, that seriously needed to be Y2J and Bray just going at it verbally….Bray set the table…..Y2J cut him off and had the crowd with him too….how can you NOT have faith in those two on a mic?!?

  • David Jr.

    Trivia question. Who is the only wrestler to wrestle at the first Wrestlemania, Survivor Series, Royal Rumble and Summer Slam?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Hogan?

      • Paul Jameson

        Duggan

        • David Jr.

          Duggan was not at Wrestlemania I

          • Paul Jameson

            yeah but i didn’t wanna say Hogan

          • David Jr.

            It wasn’t Hogan.

          • Paul Jameson

            no I knew it wasn’t hogan…that would be the go to answer….I figured Duggan who won the first RR….which wasn’t a PPV when first aired on USA in 88…..but forgot he had no role in WM

          • David Jr.

            His first Wrestlemania we was at was in the Silverdome. His first match was IV.

          • Paul Jameson

            right, knew that one, but in the heat of the moment i blanked it out. But still….good question.

      • David Jr.

        Hogan did not wrestle at the first Royal Rumble.

    • Rayner Chee-bai

      Shawn Michaels

    • Xavier

      Orndoff?

      • David Jr.

        Not at the Royal Rumble.

    • Scott

      Andre?

      • David Jr.

        Didn’t wrestle at Royal Rumble.

    • Danny Philippi

      Andre the Giant.

    • James Larochelle

      Tito?

      • David Jr.

        didn’t wrestle at SummerSlam.

    • James Larochelle

      Valentine?

      • David Jr.

        No.

    • David Jr.

      The answer to the question is Nikolai Volkoff.

      • James Larochelle

        My next guess… heheheh

      • Paul Jameson

        gah i was thinking him but not brave enough….that darn guy…

      • James Larochelle

        Trying to think of who was at the first Mania and who stuck around enough to be at those others.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Roddy Piper?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And I just saw you answered it…

        • Paul Jameson

          but you played…..that matters….

      • David Jr.

        The first SummerSlam was in 1988. Roddy Piper retired at Wrestlemania III in 1987. He wouldn’t return until 1989.

  • Xavier

    I wanna hear a “WE WANT EMMA” chant during the next Divas match, just saying

  • Danny Philippi

    Jericho vs. Miz/ Jericho/Bray Segment: 7/10. Conveyed how Jericho and Miz will be booked heading into Summerslam. Jericho and Bray will be phenomenal if they wait until Summerslam for their encounter. While the Miz might as well be the Intercontinental Champion and rival with Rey Mysterio, again.

  • Scott

    It would be cool if Jericho channeled a bit of his serious gimmick when he was saying he was the “Best in the World” for this feud but apply it in a no nonsense “just gonna kick your ass” sense

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom shoots us to “On this date in history” and we get taken to Hogan turning on Team WCW at Bash at the Beach.

  • Xavier

    My girl Naomi

  • Mike McCarthy

    Paige forgetting that heels aren’t supposed to high five fans….

    • CJ Blaze

      She thinks she’s Bo Dallas

    • Seth

      She hasn’t fully turned yet.

  • Scott

    Yeah is Paige a heel now or no? Im confused…..

    • Mike McCarthy

      I think she’s sarcastically pandering to the crowd. It’s not coming off well.

  • Xavier

    What would ya’ll grade this RAW so far?

    • Mike McCarthy

      A-

    • Scott

      Id say 6.5

      • Xavier

        I’m with you there

    • Scott

      If using letters….B-

  • K!NG

    As i said earlier If wwe does the AJ and Paige storyline right it could do wonders for the value of the Diva’s title.

  • Seth

    This sounds weird but Paige in a way showed more personality introducing AJ Lee than she has since she got called up to WWE. Babysteps I’ll take at this point.

    • James

      Yes, Paige really needs help on the mic. Ever noticed she only screams when she is hitting someone and not when someone is hitting her? Kind of odd since most people scream when they get hit.

  • Seth

    Goodbye Cameron.

  • Xavier

    CAT FIGHT

    • Seth

      One looks like she is smooth in doing these things. The other is the albatross of slop known as Cameron.

  • K!NG

    watch out for her weave

  • Paul Jameson

    you know…..there could be some real life tension that could make the Cameron Naomi fight worth watching….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    CATFIGHT!!! CATFIGHT!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Funk is on a roll…

  • Paul Jameson

    girl i paid a fortune for that hair!

    • Mike McCarthy

      They’re reality stars!! They don’t pay for their own hair!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      $20 says she had her idol Alicia Fox help her with it.

  • Scott

    Jerry Jerry Jerry!!!

    • James

      All we are missing are midgets…where is hornswoggle?

      • Scott

        Vince McMahon gives the final thought to end the show! Hahaha

        • Paul Jameson

          that could be….creepy…..unless he does it more like Mr Roger’s Neighborhood and less Springer….

          • Scott

            Hi neighbor! Today were gonna learn how to open a can of whoop ass! Can you say that with me kids? Open a can of whoop ass!

  • Danny Philippi

    Damn short-term memory cramp. What happened? Did the Diva’s division get interesting? The one thing TNA has right and WWE has to chase.

  • Emily Gaythwaite

    Did anyone see my Magaluf video?

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Tom welcomes Xavier Woods who recaps last weeks segment between Cesaro and Kofi, he says tonight Kofi gets a chance at redemption and if he was Cesaro, he’d watch his back.

    I pray to god this is a Nation of Domination 2.0 tease…

  • Tom Mayer

    I gave raw a few week hiatus. Tonight’s hasn’t been horrible, but something is missing. Maybe I’m finally growing out of this stuff after 30 years.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You missed a great one last week!

    • Xavier

      The Authority is what’s missing

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And that isn’t totally a bad thing.

        • Paul Jameson

          I’m actually a little sad and hurt about it…..I need my HHH promo fix and to see Steph twerk to Cena’s music…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That was an Instant Classic moment!

          • Paul Jameson

            you’ve seen the meme’s around the net?!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Oh yes… And I have one saved for next week!

        • Xavier

          It is tonight IMHO. THis show has kind of dragged

    • Mike McCarthy

      Cesaro and Stardust are the only things getting me by with the absence of “he who shall not be named”.

  • Paul Jameson

    What I wouldn’t give for Brock to just demolish Paul Heyman……

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Cesaro getting over and getting some cheap heat all in the same breath!

    • Paul Jameson

      that’s some hot breath….

    • Kanewty

      Funny thing is, most of Canada can’t stand Quebec, some truth in his speech lol

  • James Larochelle

    Old school heat for Cesaro

  • Seth

    Well well well…that was the most entertaining Cesaro’s been on the microphone in a standard promo and he was just being an ass to the fans. IT WORKS!

    • Paul Jameson

      he hasn’t had that many promos…its always been Heyman….

      • Seth

        He had a few pre Heyman. They were okay. This one was pretty good.

  • Mike McCarthy

    HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO BOOGIE IF THE FUNKADACTYLS JUST BROKE UP!?!?!?

    • Paul Jameson

      go to Planet Funk…..they’ll take care of you…

    • Scott

      HAHAHAHA! I think my iced tea just came out my nose a little!

    • Seth

      I think Cameron’s definition of a boogy is Melina’s entrance.

  • James Larochelle

    Tu es pourries…you are rotte.

    • James Larochelle

      Rotten…sorry

      • Mike McCarthy

        …I could’ve swore they said boogie, I can’t understand anything other than english.

        • James Larochelle

          They were riffing off what Cesaro called them

  • Mike McCarthy

    NOW THE FANS WANT TO BOOGIE!! BRING BACK THE DANCE!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we get a Quebecian chant…

    • James Larochelle

      That would be Quebecois.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Whatever it is, it is poor man’s French!

  • Paul Jameson

    Kofi 6.0 is now 2 and 0 v Cesaro…

  • Scott

    Rut roh Raggy!

  • K!NG

    the new nation of domination forming here lol

    • Paul Jameson

      …..it feels….dumb to do it against Cesaro though…..

    • Scott

      I WAS JUST THINKING THE SAME THING!!! Maybe theyll be southern baptists with Big as the preacher? Hes been testifying lately!

  • Xavier

    I remember someone suggested a Kofi & Big E tag team. Not sure if it was on here though

  • Mike McCarthy

    TWO PEOPLE!?!?! THAT’S NOT A NATION!!!

    • Paul Jameson

      it is enough for Rhode Island though…..

      • Mike McCarthy

        The State of Domination?

      • Seth

        Welcome to Rhode Island…thanks for visiting Rhode Island.

        • Scott

          More like “Welcome to Rhode Isl….bye”

          • Seth

            You sir need to watch more Whose Line is it Anyway.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I could get interested in Cesaro vs. Big E… Especially after how he did in the feud against Rusev.

    • K!NG

      that could be good direction if Cesaro wins the IC title at battleground

    • Xavier

      Or is this the start of a Kofi/Big E tag team?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sadly, that would still be a step up for Kofi.

        • Xavier

          Lol

  • David Jr.

    So did Big E and Kofi become friends because the storyline demanded it?

    • Tom Mayer

      Kofi needs a new traveling wife

  • rschell21

    Is it the sign of the new nation

  • Mike McCarthy

    The greatest WWE champion of all time? What does CM Punk have to do with this?

  • Paul Jameson

    Hey…..was Bo Dallas in the same car with Swagger…..can they both not make it into Canada?!

    • Mike McCarthy

      You can make it into Canada, all you have to do is Bolieve!!

    • K!NG

      the one uso made it across the boarder im sure swags and bo can too

      • Paul Jameson

        rock made a call for those him….he don’t care about bo and swaggs….

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Swags was nailed for a possession charge. That is something Canada doesn’t allow, I’m surprised RVD was in Canada.

        • K!NG

          i thought it was just a DUI for being higher then cheech and chong

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Nope. Swags got misdemeanor possession as well. RVD has a possession charge on his record as well.

        • Paul Jameson

          lol RVD has always been suspected……never busted?! lol j/k

    • Scott

      Jack you may now have a criminal record for possession and DUI but its ok buddy. You can get right back in that car, fire one up and enjoy the highway of life! All you have to do is……Bolieve!!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    Has Sheamus been added to the IC Title Battle Royal?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Yes.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE is a million dollar company, but they can’t afford to put Swagger in the trunk of someone’s car….

    • Jesse Sherwood

      LOL! That is making me laugh harder than I should…

    • Paul Jameson

      they tried….but it was a hatchback…….

  • David Jr.

    Tonight we witnessed something that will be compared to Shawn Michaels throwing Marty Jannetty through a glass window. Randy Savage attacking Hogan in the back. The break up of the Funkadactyls.

    • Paul Jameson

      it is what made me want to be a divas champion….

    • CJ Blaze

      After 2.5 years, it’s very emotional haha

  • Cubed56

    Just began watching Raw, anything interesting tonight? Gotta say, I love Reigns comment of “When Roman Reigns is in the house, your damn right Cena sucks”! talk about making a statement.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Here comes Bo!!

  • Paul Jameson

    Reigns v Rusev and its getting wasted on a taped show?!?! Really?!?!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Someone mentioned Midgets and Bo?

    • Seth

      This is my personal hell.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Why is Bo’s shirt soaked…..

    • James Larochelle

      It appears to be his thing

  • James Larochelle

    Someone mentioned midgets being missing earlier?

  • Paul Jameson

    He said it…..you can do anything…even get across a border….all you have to do…is BOLIEVE!

  • Tom Mayer

    Bull-lieve

    • Tom Mayer

      Damn announcers jacked my joke, I think Vince is watching wnw disqus, I demand credit.

      • Paul Jameson

        how f’d up would that be if Kind had this on his iPad lol

      • David Jr.

        they made that joke on Smackdown.

        • Tom Mayer

          Meh I don’t watch napdown

      • Jesse Sherwood

        WWE does apparently monitor these, but that was a bit too quick!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Bo Dallas vs. El Torito this is quality television

  • Mike McCarthy

    How is Bo supposed to hit his finisher on El Torito….?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      By BOLIEVING!

      • Mike McCarthy

        ….I can’t believe I walked into that…

      • Dustyn

        Bullieving!

    • Scott

      Like that…..

  • K!NG

    this is up there with the hornswoggle chavo feud from a few years ago that set pro wrestling on fire

  • Avalanchian

    Ouch his Bo-nads

  • Xavier

    JBL just said “twerking”. My night is now complete

  • K!NG

    a Bull-Dog haha

  • Dustyn

    lol!

  • Mike McCarthy

    How many times is JBL gonna make that twerking joke?

    • Paul Jameson

      Til he gets an audience with Miley Cyrus…..

  • Xavier

    LMAO at Bo knocking over El Toro

  • Mike McCarthy

    Segment of the night.

  • Seth

    Bo Dallas is jiggling more than Santa Clause.

  • Danny Philippi

    Came back in my room and saw Bo bump El Torito. Man, I miss the best part of Raw sometimes.

  • Scott

    Bo Dallas gives me the pedophile vibe for some reason lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Larry the Cable Guy is jacking the Yes Movement!

    • David Jr.

      Git-R-Done.

  • K!NG

    I was really hoping wwe used the battleground PPV to bring back a war games type match

  • Danny Philippi

    I just saying, Cameron Diaz is still well trimmed.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Just a replay of last week’s Cole/HHH interview.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I wish Fozzy’s new single “One Crazed Anarchist” was the theme of Battleground. It fits with so many people in WWE right now… Especially Bray.

    • Cubed56

      Awesome song.

    • David Jr.

      Does Kermit approve of that single?

  • Paul Jameson

    is the network really groundbreaking by now?!….i mean…..really?!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    MNW… This is must see WWEN programming!

    • David Jr.

      It’s going to be sad though.

  • Paul Jameson

    If the Monday Night War glances over Sting’s impact on the effectiveness of the NWO like all other NWO and other WCW based DVDs have done in the past…I riot…….

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I don’t think it will thanks to Sting being a free agent now.

      • Paul Jameson

        I’m just saying, you can NOT have a 1997 WCW/WWE feud without mentioning Sting….borrowed gimmick and all.

  • Xavier

    Gonna have to check that out for sure

  • K!NG

    ive already watched that before i think

  • Scott

    51 John? Really? Got a tip for ya….think anatomical position!

  • Tom Mayer

    Oh gawsh, Rollins music…the official generic caw music for wwe 2k15

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sadly, some of that music is better than half the roster’s…

      • Paul Jameson

        *cough* cesaro *cough*

      • Tom Mayer

        You know that generic mediocre sound you was lookin for? Well listen to this!

        • Paul Jameson

          another BttF reference……10 flux capacitors to you sir….

          • Tom Mayer

            Great Scott!

          • Scott

            1.21 Gigawatts!!!?!?!!!!!!

          • Paul Jameson

            wait wait wait wait…..are you telling me that this sucker is nuclear?!?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          +1000 WNW Points

        • Scott

          Hahaha!!!

    • K!NG

      Yeah im not too big on any of the theme songs they gave the shield when they split

  • Paul Jameson

    you know…the authority takes many vacations…..

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I wish I could get paid $20,000 for a week’s vacation!

      • Paul Jameson

        i just wish i got a vacation……paid or not….

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Trust me, enjoy being able to work… Just saying.

          • Paul Jameson

            Oh that isn’t the issue…..I know my blessings and it isn’t a complaint, just wish I could force myself to take a vacation…I just don’t do it.

          • K!NG

            Amen to that.

    • James Larochelle

      Did Stephanie or HHH get arrested like Swagger or do they just not like Montreal?

      • Paul Jameson

        HHH is still afraid of his punch for the screw job?!?

        • K!NG

          No they forgave hhh in 03 when he was being cheered against steiner that or they just hated steiner that night

          • Paul Jameson

            who liked Steiner after 2001?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Steiner is possible the most despised character in WWE/WCW history, just because he was pathetic on the mic. He made Sid look decent.

          • Paul Jameson

            i woulda said he made Sid look Sane…

          • K!NG

            he was a lunatic on top of that he was so big he could barley move

          • Paul Jameson

            the only person who truly had to turn sideways to enter a room cause his darn arms wouldn’t go down….

        • Scott

          In the voice of Olivander….. “I wonderrrrr”

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: CM Punk chants from the crowds, Rollins with shots on Cena in the corner. Cena fights out but can’t capitalize. Cena really selling this injury, drop kick from rollins. Rollins ties Cena in the ropes and delivers shots to the abdomen. Irish Whips Cena into the ropes, Cena holds onto the rope and Rollins does a backflip but lands on his feet! Cena hits a dropkick and we head back to USA!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Can’t believe Santino didn’t even get mentioned tonight, incredibly disrespectful.

    • Paul Jameson

      our last image will be him peddling Twisted Tea….

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They expect everyone to visit dot com for that.

    • K!NG

      hopefully they do a after raw thing for him… that would be nice but knowing them prlly not

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And now a Fruity Pebbles chant…

  • Avalanchian

    So my guess is somehow Ambrose, Reigns, Orton,and Kane get involved in the match. Leading up to Raw getting a 6 man tag team of Ambrose Reigns and Cena vs Rollins Orton Kane

    • Paul Jameson

      i like it, but too late for tonight…maybe next week main event lol

      • Avalanchian

        I mean next weeks Raw is when the match would happen.

        • Paul Jameson

          sounds good….I approve this matchup!

    • Avalanchian

      Looks like i called the ending at least. Now to see if the match happens for next Raw

  • Danny Philippi

    Typical Cena non-title match to start.

  • Danny Philippi

    3 on 1 assault. Yawn.

  • Scott

    5 moves of doom

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here comes Kane…

  • Xavier

    I’m guessing we’ll get a Reigns spear on Cena to end the show

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Orton…

  • Paul Jameson

    the new montreal Screw job!

    • Mike McCarthy

      They already tried that in 2009.

      • Paul Jameson

        and they don’t keep going back to wells too much?!?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Where’s the bell?

    • Paul Jameson

      for that matter…WHERE’S THE REF?!?!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Outside of the ring.

        • Paul Jameson

          if that’s the case….why did a whole new one have to come out?!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here comes Ambrose!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    JBL, handle yourself.

  • Xavier

    Reign spear on CENA

  • Jesse Sherwood

    To put it as Kendra did, Ambrose is on Rollins like a nasty boil on his ass!

    • Paul Jameson

      as Cameron would put it….ew?

    • Scott

      I know! Its awesome!!!! Ambrose is following Rollins like herpes follows a hooker

      • Paul Jameson

        and again it comes back to Melina…..

    • Frank Rizzo

      I thought there was no swearing here as this is a “family” site

  • Paul Jameson

    Can we put the phrase mind games….and reigns in the same sentence yet?!

  • Cubed56

    So is Reigns kinda like a tweener now?

    • Xavier

      Nah, he’s full blown face

      • Cubed56

        Thats what I thought too, but hes taking on kane one minute then trash talking and fighting the face of the company the next

        • Xavier

          He’s playing the role of an Attitude Era face

          • Cubed56

            good point. He did feel almost Rock or Austin-esque to begin the show didnt he? maybe it was just me though.

          • Xavier

            I 100% agree, Reigns in a Anti-Hero role suits him well

          • Cubed56

            I agree it really fits him. Although it would be a re-hash it still feels fresh, and its also beginning to feel like WWE is starting to push the envelope again.

  • Xavier

    Weird ending

  • Paul Jameson

    well that was a strange end……here’s hoping the lag from all the free users isn’t bad tonight. Later peeps.

  • Danny Philippi

    To put this episode of Raw into one word, it would be AKWARD!
    See you girls and boys next week. Buenos noches!

  • Avalanchian

    So it’s safe to assume my prediction of Cena, Reigns, Ambrose vs Authority figures will happen. Damn I need to play the lotto.

    • Paul Jameson

      or apply for a creative job with WWE….I hear they could use some help….

      • Avalanchian

        I’d get fired when I make a bra and panties match.

        • Paul Jameson

          but if you made it a bra and panties on a pole match you’d be given a raise from Vinnie….

          • Avalanchian

            Fatal 4 Way Bra and Panties match. Last one not showing is the winner! Cena, Reigns, Kane, Orton in dresses, bras, and tights.

          • Paul Jameson

            ……yooooooooou’rrre fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrrrrred!!!!

          • Avalanchian

            That is probably how the WWE Creative is. 1 great idea then bam all out of good ones.

  • Xavier

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

  • kyleferretti

    “Suddenly Super Cena lands an AA on Orton. Kane comes in, but then Reigns spears Kane away from Cena.”
    My favorite line haha.
