Old School RAW Starts

In Ring Segment

Woooooo! Flair comes out in gray plaid paints, navy blazer, white shirt, mustard tie and aviators.

Flair – Welcome to Old School RAW. Man has Old School had some fun in Baltimore! When I heard Old School RAW was going to be here, this limousine riding, jet flying, kiss stealing, wheeling dealing, woooo would be here live and in color. We have Legends, HOFers, and in case you haven’t noticed, we got ‘The Nature Boy’, woooo! Right here, ready to style and profile all night long! Woooo!

Flair runs the ropes, struts, and gets the love until Orton’s music hits and he heads to the Old School ring. Flair and Orton hug in the ring.

Flair – Congratulations.

Orton – I have the utmost respect for you. When I came in, you were my mentor, and I can’t thank you enough. But, that being said, tonight’s not only about the HOFers and Legends, tonight’s about me. (heat) Ric, I’m sure you agree that I’m the greatest Superstar of this generation of this or any other, the Champion of Champions. This is my time, my show, and my ring. And Ric, because I do like you very much, I’d like to ask you to step aside and give me the ring because I have something to get off my chest.

“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”

Orton – Last week on RAW Steph made and announcement, gave Cena his rematch against me at Royal Rumble. (pop) I know you like it, but I never understood why this place based decisions on what you people like. (heat) See The Authority, they didn’t consult with me. They think it’s what’s best for business, but I think that’s garbage. I proved myself when I beat Cena to within an inch of his life at TLC. I won, and have nothing left to prove to you, Cena or anyone else. I want The Authority to reverse this because I’ve beaten Cena and proven I am the man!

Flair – Whoa! Hahaha! I’m not sure you’re the man. You see, in my youth, when you were Champ, you went out seven days a week as Champ. You performed against the bets every night. I did it for three decades. That’s why I’ve got two of those (HOF rings), brother. That’s how good I was, and how hard I worked. You beat Cena at TLC, congratulations, but since then, from what I’ve seen, all you’ve done is cry about this re-match. Go out there and wrestle the man again, that’s what I’m suggesting.

Orton – Every time you were Champ, you had someone watching your back. I don’t have anyone watching my back. Ric, I’m going to let you in on a little secret, you’re the most overrated Superstar in history. Now, you’re great, you were great, but times have changed, 25 years in fact. You’re in my ring, and have to ask you to leave, and I won’t be responsible for what happens next.

Flair – I’m not leaving, and you’re going to listen to what I’ve got to say to you, whether you like it or not. Learn to love it. Hunter and I handpicked you because you were the most physically talented young man to come along in years. You had it all! Good looks, the women loved you! But you also brought an immature, I don’t know what else to say, an immature punk attitude you haven’t grown out of. You might have these, and they make you the man in this industry, but when you go home and close the door, are you really a man?

Orton – You want me to be a man Ric, how about I go Old School on your ass right now?

Orton drops his mic, but Cena’s music hits and out he comes. Cena into the ring bows up. Cena and Flair hug.

Cena – Randy Orton, congratulations, every time you open your mouth you drop to a new level of scumbag! I get it, you’ve got a problem with our rematch. Do you go to The Authority, no! You work it out with me, no! You take it out on this man! This man! You got the gall to call this man overrated. 16 times! 2 HOF rings! Bro, you don’t even belong anywhere near this man’s resume! This is Ric Flair! But, I heard you say you’re thinking about going old School, and if you means that you want a fight, I’m going Old School too. You feeling froggy, jump, I say let’s dance Randall.

Cena drops his mic, puts his hands up, but Orton backs from the ring. Orton up the ramp posing, Cena hugs Flair again and they pose in the ring. Cena and Flair strut together,t hen Cena holds the ropes for Flair.

They leave, and Kane comes in.

Kane – Is there anything that you’d like to say to my face that you didn’t say to The Authority behind my back last week?

Maddox – I wasn’t badmouthing you, but thought you might have this reaction. You going to threaten me with physical violence?

Kane – I know that threatening a fellow executive would be grounds for dismissal according to page 23 of the WWE HR Policy handbook. So, the way I see it, you’re in a no-win situation. If I do put my hands on you, I’d be fired, but on my way out, I’d make sure that you’re never seen or heard form again. On the other hand, if you get me fired, I’m no longer Director of Operations, and I go back to being the monster, in which case, I’d make sure you’re never seen or heard from again. So, Bradley boy, why don’t you keep that in mind the next time you talk to Trip and Steph about my job performance, okay?

“Roddy!”

Piper – I have fought some guys…

The Shield’s music and out they come. They are not quite sure about climbing over the Old School barricades.

Ambrose – Who gave this old man a live mic. We’re on live TV. We weren’t going to stand around waiting for you to go on, and on, and on. If anything, you should be thanking God that The Shield wasn’t around when you were in your prime, or you wouldn’t have made it to 112 years old.

Piper – First of all, nobody gave me a mic, I took it. And this is Piper’s Pit, not Ambrose Alley. Now, if you’re finished with the foolishness, (to Rollins) think I’m cute? Hahaha! (Rollins nods, smirks, tries to stay in character) I admit, I’ve been beat up. I have fought some guys. Oh, my goodness. Things don’t work like they used to, except my mind, it’s fine! There’s only one guy who can match me on the mic. His name is CM Punk. (right up in Ambrose face) Punk!

Ambrose – I think you’d know to tread lightly in a situation like you’re in Piper!

Rollins backs Ambrose into a corner, away from Piper.

Rollins – Hot Rod, can I call you that? I appreciate what you’re trying to do here, but my friend, it’s not 1985 anymore. The Shield is too smart for your little tactics, alright. There’s no cracks. I think Piper’s a little jealous because you’re a better US Champ than Piper was.

Ambrose – That’s a big part of it.

Piper – You may be right. I know something for sure. You (Rollins) one on one, can’t beat Punk. You (Ambrose) one on one, you couldn’t beat Punk either. Hahaha, is it bothering ya? You (Reigns) you’re fighting Punk tonight, and let me just ask, if you beat Punk tonight, doesn’t that make you better than them. Would that be like a crack in The Shield?

Rollins (off mic) – It’s not gonna work Piper.

Piper – Just a second. Are they holding you back?

Ambrose (off mic) – Don’t listen to a word he’s saying.

Piper – Crack! Crack!

“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Reigns (up off his stool, right up at Piper) – I’m going to beat Punk tonight, and if you ever touch me again, I’m gonna break your old ass in half. (continues to back Piper up, Rollins and Ambrose right with him.)

Ambrose – Hey, ah, Roman, ah, let’s leave a memorable impression on Mr. Piper right now.

Rollins (off mic, sing-songy) – Mr. Piper! Mr. Piper!

Punk’s music and out he comes, New Age Outlaws running with him! All three into ring and they clear the ring of The Shield! The Shield outside yelling back in at them. Ambrose ditched his strap in the ring, so Punk holds it up mocking. All four in the ring, fists in, mocking The Shield.

In Ring Segment

Brock and Heyman to the ring.

Heyman – My name is Paul Heyman. (heat) And here comes the best part, I stand in front of you as the advocate for the self proclaimed #1 Contender for the WWE WHC, The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar. My client wants me to convey his dismay over the public’s misconception over this team Old School. See, Old School according to my client is not trudging out these, Brock doesn’t want me calling them old timers, so let’s call them Legends and giving them their last hurrah. That’s not Old School. According to Brock, Old School is when one man reigns supreme and every member of that locker room comes out and challenges that Champion to be the one man in sport’s entertainment today. That’s Old School. As Brock pointed out to me earlier, Bruno Sammartino reigned supreme over every single solitary of that locker room and they all wanted a piece of him. That’s Old School. Hogan reigned supreme, and every member of that locker room wanted a piece of Hogan, so they could reign supreme. SCSA… We’re not out here looking for acceptance to the names I’m dropping right now. SCSA reigned supreme, and every member of that locker room wanted a piece of him. That’s Old School. Today one man is the WWE WHC, and after the Royal Rumble, if that man is Cena or Orton, you should put an expiration stamp on the back of their neck, because their time will be very limited, they will have a target on their back. Coming after them is the self-proclaimed #1 Contender, Brock Lesnar. Now, this is where the facts are more interesting that the hype. Let’s not under-sell Brock. There’ nobody in WWE, or even in MMA, or professional sports that can compare to Brock Lesnar’s ability to reign supreme as the #1 man today. Last week Mark Henry took Brock Lesnar up on that challenge. What happened to the Olympian? Brock Lesnar had no time to prepare. Brock Lesnar had no strategy. What did Brock Lesnar do, laid Henry to waste. Gave him the most savage beating of his career. It doesn’t matter who came down that aisle, big or small, old school or new school, whoever goes up against Brock Lesnar is going to end up being a loser. Because my client, Brock Lesnar’s life really is like a t-shirt. Eat. Sleep. Conquer. Repeat. Eat. Sleep. Conquer. Repeat. Eat. Sleep…

Henry’s music hits and out he comes looking rather stiff. Brock moves in front of Heyman, motioning for him to leave the ring. Henry into the ring and on him with blows. Knees to Henry’s gut, then the arm lock as Heyman cheers him on, then Brock ‘snaps’ Henry’s arm. Brock pulls at Henry’s shirt and the bandaging around Henry’s body. Heyman into the ring and stops Brock from doing more. Video recap, then docs are in talking to Henry. Heyman yells at Henry, asks why he’d do that to himself. Brock and Heyman leaving up the ramp…

Big Show’s music hits and he slowly comes out. Brock and Heyman back away slowly. Brock into the ring, ready for Big Show. Big Show up on the apron, over the top rope, then Brock flees the ring. Huge heat for Brock. Heyman, off mic, yells that his client doesn’t fight for free. Big Show and Brock stare. Heyman up on the apron, ramp side, to distract Big Show. Brock in, but Big Show is ready and grabs Brock by his face. Brock backed into a corner, then Big Show tosses Brock roughly across the ring, by his face. Brock lands on his shoulder badly, not at all as a wrestler should land, and rolls from the ring, but the post is there, so Brock makes a mess of falling from the ring. Brock looks honestly pissed at Big Show, seething outside as Heyman backs him up the ramp.

Video

Barrett – Can I have some decorum please? What a momentous occasion, look at all these Legends here for Old School RAW. It should be a momentous occasion, but I’ve got some bad news. Flea markets across the entire US were driven to a frenzy today by virtue of the fact that this lot was not available to sign 25 year old photos of themselves, and hold hands with the seven or so people who know who they are. Mark my words gentlemen, these pathetic attempts at regaining your glory years will prove fruitile (sic), and your futures are doomed to anonymity. I will personally take great pleasure in forgetting all of your names as you walk out of the arena this evening. The only thing that’s badder than that is the knowledge that the WWE ‘Universe’ will forget your names too. So welcome back Legends!

            Oh joy. Now my greatest fears will be realized. We can hear him grab the mic and not talk well.

          • Mike McCarthy

            He sure was.

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

            Sadly!

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

            I usually call Flair a fogie, and he was mentioned in the list, and hinted at on RAW.

      • Alex Gallardo

        That’s what I’m wondering too.

        • Nostaljack

          Old people

  • Mike McCarthy

    Just a warning for you all, if Scotty Too Hotty actually does appear tonight I might just lose my lunch

    • Alex Gallardo

      Make sure you get to the bathroom in time.

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

      Why?

      He’s a local Maine boy, someone I knew years ago…

      • Mike McCarthy

        He’s my favorite wrestler of ALL TIME! I remember leading up to WrestleMania 27 Grandmaster Sexay made an appearance in the Lawler/Cole storyline. They have the same music and I forgot…..I fell back in my chair.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Damn, you sure seem to go crazy for him. But hey, marking out is what makes wrestling fun.

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

          LOL, nice try. It’s okay, everyone has their faves and who they don’t like. Just fun to harass you.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, Rikishi and Brian Christopher are there too, so…

      • Mike McCarthy

        Well I believe he’s advertised, but he could always get scratched.

    • Nostaljack

      I’ll only hurl if I see Doc Hendrix.

  • Danny Philippi

    Is it frigid where you guys and girls are? I am in a winter advisory zone tonight. Great that I am inside going to watch Raw.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Today it was -50 degrees. This is why I hate Winter!

      • Nostaljack

        Great googly moogly! We’re only supposed to get to 7F

    • Nostaljack

      Not yet. We’re getting our Big Chill at around 10 tonight.

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

        Yeah, it was warm and rainy here today, but the temp is dropping fast!

        • David Jr.

          My brother’s car got stuck in the snow, And it was -2 degrees at the time. But he was lucky a fire and rescue truck saw him.

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

            He was very lucky. I’m more worried about the ice than anything right now. My appointment was cancelled for Friday, so I have a 2 hour drive – each way – tomorrow for an appt. I don’t like driving on ice, so I’m a bit tweaky about it.

  • Danny Philippi

    It is the last big time competition for Raw tonight going up against the BCS Championship Game (FSU v Auburn). From next week on, Raw hopes to have an uptick.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Good Evening Everyone. Hope I am not too late to the party.

    • Nostaljack

      Hey, Navin!

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        What’s up Nostaljack? I am ready for Raw to go Old School.

        • Nostaljack

          You and me both!

  • Xavier

    What’s good everyone. How’s everybody doing this evening?

    • Nostaljack

      XAVIER! What it is?

      • Xavier

        Just chilling bro, ready for some RAW

        • Nostaljack

          Housewives have “General Hospital.” We have “Raw”!

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

            Hey, I’m a housewife and I would rather watch RAW! I do watch Days, but still prefer RAW – though I’m not your average housewife.

          • Nostaljack

            LOL! I’m talking your typical housewife. ‘Course, I know guys who watch “General Hospital” too so I’m just talking in generalities…;)

          • Xavier

            Lol, let’s hope that the wives atleast tune to Total Divas one day so that they will eventually tune into RAW

          • Nostaljack

            Truth!

  • Danny Philippi

    What’s your guys/girls thoughts on Jerry Lawler’s hospitalization?

    • Mike McCarthy

      I think it was probably just precautionary.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’m glad he’s okay, but he needs to relax and take a break.

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

      Worried. My heart goes out to him, and hope it’s food poisoning or something simple.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I hope everyone is safe and warm wherever they are and not too badly affected by the snowstorms. My thoughts are with you guys from here in Trinidad.

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

      It’s been a crazy and intense winter already. Since the new year 2 1/2 days of school have been canceled in my town. Sam was sick, so she missed all three, but I see a lot more missed school due to weather this winter.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        I hope you stay as safe and as warm as you can Kendra. My thoughts and prayers will remain with everyone who is affected in some way by the snowstorms.

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

          Thanks, I’m just not looking forward to going out early tomorrow after all the melt from today.

          • Kris Mystery

            You are in Maine right Kendra?

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

    1st I want to apologize to the moderation team for my comment on the Troops page. I’m a laid back nice guy but there is one line I will not allow anyone to cross and that’s bad mouthing my dad. He was such an important person to me and I miss him so much every day since he passed away. He’s why I’m a wrestling fan today. I wouldn’t be who I am today if that man had not entered my life at 4 months old. So I’m sorry for my language.
    2nd I’m looking forward to tonight’s raw. should be interesting.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Wait, what? Hold on and let me see.

    • Alex Gallardo

      We all make mistakes but now it’s time to move forward and look forward to watching Raw!

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

      I appreciate that. Your name has been on our watch list, but the apology goes quite far.

      Thank you.

      • Xavier

        You guys got a list? Don’t let me find out that white van parked outside is really you & Jesse staking me out.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I have candy though…

          • Xavier

            LMAO

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

          Jesse and I do most of the modding. Actually, Jesse is the best at finding the bad. Between he and I we let the other aware of problem names – just in case things pop up elsewhere.

          • Xavier

            But that still doesn’t explain the white van that’s been parked outside my house for a week. Hmmmmmmmmm

          • Nostaljack

            Oh that’s me. I’m just “looking.” Don’t mind me.

          • Xavier

            Lol

          • Alex Gallardo

            Run as fast as you can.

          • Xavier

            You may not believe me when I say this but I can run like the wind blows

    • Xavier

      What happened?

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

        He called my dad who served 10 years in the Army a glorified Murderer. My dad was a member of the Army but he was a Cook and was stationed in Germany during Vietnam. I flipped my lid and said something I shouldn’t have which required moderation.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Dude, it is understandable. I would have done the same thing if I was you and wasn’t a staff member. Just be cool from now on!

          • Alex Gallardo

            We can at least pretend that we all like each other if anything.

          • Nostaljack

            We can. I pretend to like Jesse and I think I do it really well. Oh no…

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

            Thanks for understanding. I’ll do my best to be on my best behavior.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Family means a lot to me, and there is no reason for some troll to attack yours for no reason. One of the founding rules on WNW for commenting is “No personal attacks.” Like I said, if anything like that happens again, then message me on FB. I’m always available.

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

            I will next time. but we aren’t friends on FB at least I don’t think we are.

        • Xavier

          I don’t blame you bro. I would of lost my cool in that situation as well.

    • Nostaljack

      Beyond classy. I don’t know what happens but it takes a big person to apologize. I respect it big time.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Josh, I handled it just now. If anything like that ever happens again, message me on FB and I’ll get it resolved immediately. That was just sick and baseless of them.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Most likely whoever it was just wanted attention. It’s quite sad that someone would be so lonely that they resort to getting attention on the Internet.

  • Danny Philippi

    By the way, tonight’s Raw is in Baltimore. If this is Old School Raw, Mark Henry would take a diva out to Baltimore Jack’s and beat on a couple drunk talking dirty to Chyna. Brock Lesnar killed that last week, though.

  • Nostaljack

    I personally can’t wait to see the Grand Wizard and Sir Oliver Humperdinck.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    What are your thoughts on Daniel Bryan’s new Wyatt Family Attire and him possibly being called Daniel Wyatt?

    • Nostaljack

      He looks like a mini Erick Rowan with hair.

    • Xavier

      Not feeling it. I really hope Bryan isn’t going heel for real. I hope this is a angle where Bryan tries to destroy the Wyatts from within. Turning Bryan heel right now is a bad move on WWE creative part long term. I’ll give it a chance of course but I’m skeptical to say the least

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        I will give it a chance as well I just hope they do both Bray and Bryan justice in the angle.

  • David Jr.

    Since Monday Night Football is done, will be getting Tigers vs. Seminoles updates tonight?

    • Danny Philippi

      I will do my best. It is hard doing college games. More opportunities to score points.

  • Danny Philippi

    Secondly, I hate to be Ric Flair tonight. He basically became San Francisco’s celebrity cheerleader. Baltimore fans will remind him who beat who in last year’s Super Bowl.

    • Xavier

      He turned his back on the people of Charlotte lol

    • David Jr.

      He turned heel on his home team already, so he won’t care.

  • Danny Philippi

    Update on Jerry Lawler’s condition: He is still in Baltimore. He was trying to hide the condition but Brain Christopher, his son, reported it to WWE officials anyway.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: There’s a cool Old School themed animation for when you’re waiting for the live video. Josh Mathews welcomes us to Old School Raw holding an old school mic in front of blue and gold curtains. He welcomes William Regal to Raw, Regal thanks him for not calling him a legend because he’s more of a myth. Mathews reminds him that on this day he won the Tag Team championship. They then go to show a video of Regal & Storm beating Booker T & Goldust for the titles on January 6th, 2003. They won after Regal knocked out both members with the brass knuckle.

  • Nostaljack

    WWE App Update: Jumpin’ Jeff Farmer has just challenged Motley Cruise for the WWF TV Title. Vicki interrupted and made it the main event! I can’t wait!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      LOL!!!

      • Nostaljack

        You laugh but Motley turned the tables; he turned the tables in a wrong way!

  • Danny Philippi

    Watching the pre-BCS game coverage. Just imagined if WrestleMania was held at the Rose Bowl. #Epic

    • Xavier

      Agreed.

    • David Jr.

      I could see it happening.

      • Danny Philippi

        WrestleMania VII was going to be held at the L.A. Coliseum but was moved indoors due to security issues arising from the Gulf War

        • Mike McCarthy

          McMahon was seriously concerned about snipers.

          • Xavier

            Supposedly somebody sent the WWE a death threat saying they were going to shoot Sgt Slaughter since he was a Iraqi sympathizer but that actually never happened and wasn’t the reason why Vince changed the venue

        • Xavier

          That was the excuse used by the WWE but the real season it was moved was due to poor ticket sales

          • David Jr.

            Which is surprising because how didn’t Hulk Hogan vs. Sgt. Slaughter not sell out in one minute.

          • Xavier

            91 was the beginning of the end of the Hogan era in the WWE due to the whole steroid scandel and what not

          • David Jr.

            Why they thought Hogan vs. Slaughter would out draw Hogan vs. Andre is beyond me, Even if Hogan was still on top like he was at Wrestlemania 3, Slaughter was nowhere near the draw Andre the Giant was.

          • Xavier

            Agreed

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Back to Josh Mathews and he promotes Raw which starts in three minutes. He says multiple legends and hall of famers are here tonight. Punk vs. Reigns tonight and Lesnar will be here! Pretty much just summed up the promotional info

  • Nostaljack

    NOOOOO!!

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Hi everybody! Time to enjoy the show!

  • Alex Gallardo

    It’s dope to see Flair open the show.

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

    It’s time! Old School Raw with Ric Flair leading off the show.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WOOO!!!

  • Xavier

    Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

  • packerpf

    Ready for this old school raw!

  • Nostaljack

    6 time…oops!

  • Xavier

    He’s a 6x, 16x world heavyweight champion in my Michael Cole voice

  • Mike McCarthy

    Niners don’t need Flair!!! They’re the best team in the league.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Statistically speaking (As I don’t watch football much), I’d debate you on that.

      • David Jr.

        There definitely up there.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I’d say a solid 3rd, but not 1st.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Maybe a 2nd to the Broncos, but not 3rd.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Broncos, Seahawks, 49ers on pure stats.

          • Mike McCarthy

            ooooo football is so much more than stats Jesse, that hurt my heart.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m just learning a lot, and part of my job is statistical analysis. I love numbers and delving into this kind of thing. The sport itself is fun!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Loving the blue steps and poles!

  • Cubed56

    so who besides me thinks it would be awesome if the wyatts get involved in whatever segment IRS is in?

    • Nostaljack

      YES!

    • Yazan Hamdan

      i think they could do a small inside joke type of segment with Wyatt and IRS.

    • David Jr.

      I called for it on Smackdown’s Watch Party.

    • Xavier

      Lol yeah. I’m still trying to figure out these things called genetics because they look nothing alike

      • Mike McCarthy

        Throw in Bo Dallas, none of the three look alike!!!

        • Xavier

          Lol very true

      • Cubed56

        yea, must of got their moms looks, yikes!

        • Xavier

          Lol

        • Nostaljack

          BURN!!!!

  • k! ng

    I remember I lost my voice woooooing at last years old school raw

  • Nostaljack

    Oh, the pants. What table cloth did he steal them from?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ric couldn’t even match his coat and pants tonight!

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

      Hey he’s sober! I think

      • Nostaljack

        Can’t be. Not with that wardrobe choice.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Trust me, he has been known to hide it well. But based on the promo, I’d say he is sober.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Mini Evolution Reunion

  • Cubed56

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, give us an “old school” Orton sighting. Please Orton RKO another legend!

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

    Why couldn’t Ric speak to my Bengals. T_T

  • Nostaljack

    Took me under your ring…ROFL!

  • Yazan Hamdan

    I’m calling RKO on Flair.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Please?

  • Scooter

    Flair must be drunk again. Keeping his shades on! Just kidding lol

  • Nostaljack

    Orton has come many miles forward with regard to his mic work. He’s money!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Am I the only one not interested in Orton Vs. Cena CDLXXXV?

    • Cubed56

      yes

    • Xavier

      It’s a filler match until Lesnar gets his title shot.

    • David Jr.

      Hey if they do it at the Royal Rumble, it won’t be at Wrestlemania.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Trust me, you’re not alone at all.

    • Jbreed

      I’ve been watching pro wrestling for 35 years and I dont ever remember during other eras when nobody gave a crap about seeing the number 1 and 2 guys in the comany wrestle each other in the main event. It just goes to show how much the WWE desperately needs new faces of the company.

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

    Anyone else think WWE should have had Orton present the big Gold belt to Flair here?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye sir!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Flair is holding the turnbuckle up well…

    • Nostaljack

      LOL!!!

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Honestly, i, just a little bit, agree with Orton.

  • Cubed56

    Flair was starting to tear up.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And now he starts the slurring…

    • Nostaljack

      He really is.

    • Seth

      Age is a damning thing too…tis the price you pay when you live hard and play too hard too.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Aye Seth. And when you have been through the trials he has the last year…

        • Seth

          He’s been through hell and back.

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

      It’s sad.

  • packerpf

    the facial hair helps pull Orton’s sadistic look together.

  • Xavier

    Flair is still super effective on the mic

    • Nostaljack

      He sucked in TNA. He’s clearly been given some…ahem…guidance here.

      • Xavier

        Don’t get me started on TNA lol

      • Seth

        TNA certainly wasn’t…great for a ton of people.

        • Mike McCarthy

          Idk man, I heard it did wonders for Pacman Jones

          • Seth

            I live in West Virginia and that was a bit of a sore spot as a whole. Heh…

  • k! ng

    Father time is putting naitch in a figure four

  • Mike McCarthy

    Orton looks really scary when he threatens a 64 year old man.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    And…..there goes my interest in this segment (Deepest Apologies to any Cena Fans Out there)

    • Nostaljack

      Fast Johnny Cena…used car salesman

    • Alex Gallardo

      Cena just has to ruin everything.

  • Seth

    Never say bro again John. It sounded…horrendous.

  • packerpf

    randall lol.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Anybody else just peep the announce table? REAL OLD SCHOOL!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      OMG! LOLOLOL!!!

    • David Jr.

      I has hoping for Rob Bartlett to be at the announce table tonight.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And VKM!

        • David Jr.

          And Bobby Heenan dressed as a woman or a rabbi.

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

    Flair just stared down the man that will break his record.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Man John Cena looks like a walking merchendise stand.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And that’s why he will never go heel.

      • Yazan Hamdan

        Never say never. That is all on that topic.

    • Seth

      John’s shirt has more colors than Spike Dudley’s attire in ECW.

  • packerpf

    Flair going to betray cena in the main event.

    • Xavier

      That would be a nice swerve

  • Nostaljack

    OH, holy bad hair, JBL!

  • Mike McCarthy

    JBL’s hair right now >

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

    glad to hear Jerry is mostly well.

  • Seth

    JBL’s hair is so bad it is awesome.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think Luke Harper did an awesome job last week

  • Scooter

    JBL WITH THE MCMAHON HAIRCUT!!!!! That has to be a rib!!! Hahahahaha

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

    Last week Luke Harper won a ton of fans I think with his match with Bryan.

  • k! ng

    Cena couldn’t lace flairs boot if flair never broke his back I couldn’t image how much better he would have been n that’s saying something cause flair was one of greatest of all time

    • Seth

      He learned a completely different style of working after he broke his back. He was a bigger, heavier brawler before he broke his back if I recall correctly. After that he dropped weight and was lighter and did different things.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That announce table looks like an electrical fire waiting to happen!

    • Nostaljack

      Yeah, the PC under the table is odd.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Ahh the old school music!

  • Stephen Cash

    This setup looks wicked awesome!!!!

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

    Lets see how they play the Daniel (Bryan)Wyatt story here.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    So do we call him Daniel Bryan or Daniel Wyatt?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Daniel Bryan Danielson Wyatt!

    • David Jr.

      There not Luke Wyatt or Erick Wyatt, so I don’t get why he’d be Daniel Wyatt.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        He was Daniel Wyatt at the House Show this weekend

      • Jesse Sherwood

        For effect. The Wyatts aren’t getting many boos, so why not “Convert” Bryan by temporarily change his name to resonate this with the fans.

  • Xavier

    I want a Todd Pettingill sighting tonight. Only real wrestling fans remember that name

    • David Jr.

      I must be a real wrestling fan because I remember him, though I called for Rob Bartlett earlier.

  • Danny Philippi

    Orton/Flair/Cena segment: 4/10
    Daniel Bryan/Wyatt Family video package: 7/10
    Announcer’s Table/JBL’s get-up: -1/10

  • Stephen Cash

    I love Bryan, but his acting during that turn horrible

    • Xavier

      Agreed. I’m having trouble believing that a Bryan heel turn would work right now.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I think it’s just gonna turn out that he was just pretending the whole time and he’d planned the whole thing.

        • Xavier

          I really hope that’s the case

    • Nostaljack

      Disagree. I thought he handled that brilliantly. What didn’t you like about it.

      • Stephen Cash

        I felt like he did agree with what he was selling….

  • Nostaljack

    SEAN MOONEY!!!

    • Xavier

      Todd Pettingill

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: We join Josh Mathews who mentions Lawler missing from ringside. He brings up the rumors of his hospitalization, but…BREAKING NEWS he welcomes Jerry Lawler!!! He tells us that he went into a seafood restaurant and the lunch didn’t sit well. He says that somebody on the internet just made up the heart attack rumor but that it wasn’t completely out of nowhere. He said he’s happy to be here for Old School Raw. And he might just do a run in.

    Recap: Lawler simply just had a stomach virus from some bad seafood and he’s at Raw tonight.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Good! Glad Jerry is ok.

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

      I think that’s the first app update I cared about! Thanks

  • Stephen Cash

    Cena felt off during that

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I think Reigns will go over Punk tonight

    • Stephen Cash

      I don’t think Punk would put him over clean…

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

    Random Thought: Daniel Bryan Joined the Wyatt Family to win the Rumble.

  • Stephen Cash

    Cena or Orton who wins at RR? I hope Orton

    • Xavier

      It’s gonna be Lesnar/Orton at EC

      • Stephen Cash

        Not in the Elimination Chamber match? How they are both heels

        • Xavier

          1 on 1 I thought

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Doesn’t Daniel Bryan look like Duke the Dumpster in that attire lol?

    • Mike McCarthy

      That’s what Richard pointed out

    • Xavier

      Now that’s an old school reference right there

  • Stephen Cash

    No, no we don’t Cole…

  • Nostaljack

    The crowd is doing just what I thought they’d do: they’re taking pity on him.

  • Stephen Cash

    This Wyatt/ DB angle reminds me of the JBL/HBK angle

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

    a Young Rey Mysterio vs Daniel Bryan Feud would be an epic feud.

    • Xavier

      Mysterio all day everyday. Mysterio from 95 thru 2010 was the best wrestler on the planet

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Have you ever seen the Bryan/Eddie match? F’N AMAZING!!!

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

        Didn’t know there was one. Now I have something to look up

        • Jesse Sherwood

          It’s hard to find a good upload of it, but it was really early in Bryan’s career. 02 I think. It was when Eddie was briefly released from WWE.

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

            might be even harder for me. I lost my Youtube account today. Copyright issues.

      • David Jr.

        I knew he fought Punk, didn’t know about Bryan.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Eddie worked a lot of the big Indy names during that time. He had a match with Hero too if I remember right.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Question, does Mysterio wear contacts or do his eyes just naturally look dilated?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Daniel Wyatt is evilly vicious! I love it!

    • Nostaljack

      I do too! I like this so far!

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think it’s obvious that Lesnar will win the Rumble, if that wasn’t the plan they wouldn’t be using his dates right now.

    • Xavier

      He’s getting a title shot I thought already?

      • Mike McCarthy

        No, Heyman and Lesnar just said he’s next in line. Cena said that Bryan is after him. Nothing is official and that’s how the storyline is going.

    • Stephen Cash

      I love that it is at least bouncing around though. The last few years I felt like a knew forever before. Especially last year.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    I think they should have used someone other than Rey, for that extra dramaric effect.

  • Danny Philippi

    If I saw a janitor that looked like Daniel Bryan, I would run the other way.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Wyatts recuperating outside but get hit by the Usos diving out the ring. Bryan is picked up and tossed in the ring, Uso to the top rope but knocked down by Bryan. Rowan tags in. Two-count on Uso. Harper tags in and Rowan throw an Uso into a big clothesline from Harper. Harper with an uppercut, Uso bounces off the ropes right into another uppercut. Cole says he doesn’t wanna believe what’s happened to Bryan. Rowan tags in and a big knee to Uso. Back to USA.

  • k! ng

    This is gonna make BD even bigger imo

  • Danny Philippi

    WWE fixating social media into Old School Raw? #NotCool

    • Jesse Sherwood

      #HashtagsAreOverused

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Love this aggressive new Daniel Bryan!

  • Xavier

    The Usos deserve the tag belts more so then any other tag team right IMO

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

    Based solely on his actions in this match I think a Heel Daniel Bryan is more believable now.

  • Stephen Cash

    How would an Orton vs Lesnar match work with both being heels… thats why I am kind of worried about Cena winning at RR… however they could all face off in the chamber

  • Mike McCarthy

    Terrible rollup

  • Mike McCarthy

    …so they play their music for two seconds….

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

    I can’t help it but every time I see Mysterio, my first image is of Diesel throwing him head first into a trailer like a dart. That was old school.

    • Nostaljack

      AMAZING!

    • Justin

      I was watching the nWo Anthology two nights ago. that’s an amazing segment.

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

    Dissension among the ranks.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Piper’s Pit with the Shield! This will be amazing!!!

    • David Jr.

      Earlier Orton said the Flair was overrated, well Roddy Piper is extremely underrated, Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon get most of the credit for the success of Wrestlemania and Rock N Wrestling era, but Roddy Piper was just as important of those 2.

      • Xavier

        Wouldn’t go that far. Piper is nowhere on Hogan’s level. There is no one in wrestling now or past that was a bigger deal then Hogan. And this is coming from a Piper fan.

        • David Jr.

          I’m not saying he’s on Hogan’s level, But without Darth Vader there’s no Luke Skywalker, without the Joker, there’s no Batman and without Roddy Piper, there’s no Hulk Hogan.

  • Xavier

    Piper’s Pit will likely be the segment of the night. Piper will stir the pot. He’s really the CM Punk of the 80s.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I like to think it is Punk is the Piper of the 00′s.

      • Xavier

        Yeah that makes sense, Piper came first.

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

        That depends on how well Punk handles a coconut.

    • Cubed56

      im actually hoping by stirring the pot, he makes the shield come together a bit, and they realize again how intimidating and dominating they can be and beat the hell out of piper. Sorry a bit harsh maybe, but I was never a piper fan.

      • Xavier

        Piper was great in the 80s, he pushed the envelope a lot

        • Cubed56

          im not saying he wasn’t good, I just never liked him.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Ugh, how come whenever Piper makes an appearance it has to be in a Piper’s Pit segment?

    • Xavier

      Because him in Piper’s Pit is still super effective

    • Nostaljack

      Because that’s all he can handle. He’s lost his mic if his last few appearances are any indication.

  • k! ng

    Wwe is trying to make Db more ruthless n tougher looking from the looks of it

  • Yazan Hamdan

    Just imagine the how good the mic skills will be between Piper and Ambrose!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Minds will be blown!

      • Nostaljack

        Not anymore. Piper’s best mic days are behind him.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Piper can still cut a good promo if need be. VKM just needs to let him control the segment, not a script.

          • Nostaljack

            He’s been pretty wretched the last few times. He says stuff that sounds unhinged and then goes to “just when you think you have all all the answers, I change the questions” and then we’re out.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Exactly! It’s like they are expecting him to follow a certain script.

          • Xavier

            He’s Piper Pit with Cena back in late 2011 was highly effective and really good

    • Xavier

      I’m not really a fan of Ambrose on the mic honestly, I know people are gonna kill me for saying that but the whole trying to sound like Joker thing is corny to me

      • Cubed56

        I agree, I do think hes good on the mic though, but trrying to sound like the Joker is stupid.

        • Xavier

          Agreed. If he lost the Heath Legler/Joker voice he’d be much better

      • Yazan Hamdan

        Well compare him to the rest of the roster, and I think given time he can be better.

  • Stephen Cash

    Beercules!!!!!

    • Mike McCarthy

      That better not be a HIMYM spoiler!!!!

      • Stephen Cash

        It’s not new this week. lol I was punning off the Hercules commercial

  • Danny Philippi

    Best Piper’s Pit moment, anyone?

    • Mike McCarthy

      THE COCONUT

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

        Yep!

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Mathews says Old School Raw has a different type of feel to it. He welcomes MEAN GENE OKERLUND. Gene insults Mathews’ suit, he presents an old school yellow jacket to Mathews. He gives it to him and asks where the Men’s room is. Josh apologizes because he knows that Gene was expecting Renee Young. Gene murmurs “yeah..” and walks away.

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

    Want to talk about Overrated. There’s Overrated. Batista.

    • Nostaljack

      YES!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Looks like he is returning Face with that vignette.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And there’s your RR winner…

    • Stephen Cash

      Not so sure. I could see him entering just to take someone out!

    • Cubed56

      and there goes my chances of watching the RR.

      • Cubed56

        whoever voted my comment down, want to explain why please. sorry if I don’t want to pay to watch a RR ive already seen.

  • Stephen Cash

    Who does Batista feud with first?

    • David Jr.

      His Ego?

    • Xavier

      Booker T got another ass whoopin with Dave’s name on it

  • Stephen Cash

    No!!!!

  • David Jr.

    JBL just said Batista won one of the greatest Royal Rumbles of all time. How can that be one of the best, because ask any wrestling fan, what the most memorable thing about that match, I think I know what most people would say.

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      Vince tearing his quads?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        YES!

    • Xavier

      I actually thought 2005 was a very good rumble actually. Not the best but certainly really good IMO

      • Mike McCarthy

        2009 was great.

      • David Jr.

        Buut what’s the first thing you remember about the match?

        • Xavier

          Cena/Batista showdown

          • David Jr.

            Oh its not Vince tearing both his quads?

          • Xavier

            Nah not at all actually. Cena/Batista showdown, RAW/SMACKDOWN stand off, Muhammed Hussan getting ganged up on, Kane’s epic elimination of Paul London and Guererro/Benoit kicking off the rumble stand out to me more

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

          The Only think I remember about the match was the tie ending that got the match restarted. I didn’t know Vince tore his quads in the match.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yep, by sliding into the ring!

          • David Jr.

            It wasn’t in the match, if was after Cena and Batista were both eliminate, he came down to restart the match, he tore them walking to the ring.

  • Stephen Cash

    Arn

    • Nostaljack

      Gene!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Ole!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Sarge has to be my favorite of the three, but I don’t wanna see him as a referee

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

    Arn looks like he can still go!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    My vote is for Arn!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    So that’s where his mask is….

  • Nostaljack

    Great work from Kane! I Love this!

  • Yazan Hamdan

    OMG What the hell happened to Kane?! Atleast threaten him like old times!

    • Yazan Hamdan

      Nevermind.

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

    about time that kane lays some ground rules to Brad Maddox.

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

    Kane is scarier in that suit than ever before!

  • Mike McCarthy

    GET AKSANA OFF MY TELEVISION DAMNIT

    • Jesse Sherwood

      She’s still a gold digger!

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

    IRS and Million Dollar Man with Big E! That is awesome.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ted Dibiase! IRS!!!

  • Xavier

    Lol, I liked Big E’s reaction to all that

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Money INC is in the house!

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

    Was it me or was that fun to watch?

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

      It was fun to watch.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    BTW does anyone know what Kane was wrestling in against Big Show in the live events?

    • Alex Gallardo

      I heard that he wore the same gear that he had when he was wearing the mask.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Mathews welcomes Ric Flair to the App. He asks him how explosive it was tonight. He says he loves Randy and it was a personal thrill for him to be back. He says even if he doesn’t agree with him he still respects Randy. In an awkward moment he says that John Cena is one of his man crushes…right next to Lebron. They talk football and he says it’s thrilling to have so much respect from the players. The entire time you could hear the crowd and the music from the arena in the background.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Wow… that kinda proves his state tonight…

      • Mike McCarthy

        ….gay?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Three sheets.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    The Network is coming…..

    • Mike McCarthy

      I hope so

  • Alex Gallardo

    We all know that they’re going to announce the Network. And I just hope this whole project doesn’t turn on them.

  • Yazan Hamdan

    HATE that new logo!

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

      What Logo? If you’re talking about the WWE logo that’s the old school logo from when Raw started.

      • Alex Gallardo

        I think he means the WWE Network logo.

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

          I don’t mind the WWE Network Logo. it’s not bad IMO.

      • Yazan Hamdan

        NO! The network logo. I love the old school one!

  • Xavier

    Let the hate begin lol

  • Nostaljack

    RYbotch!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Can’t even speak without a botch!

  • Stoney

    Orton calling flair overrated?

    That’s the pot calling the kettle back

    • Xavier

      Keyfabe

  • Mike McCarthy

    ‘It’s pretty simple, you take Ryback, you take Axel and put em together moron”

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

      It’s pretty simple, you take Ryback, you take Axel and put em together and you get a moron
      fixed it

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

    We need 5!

  • Nostaljack

    Ryback is particularly sucky on the mic.

  • Xavier

    If the WWE wants Big E to stay over then get him as far away from Curits Axel as quickly as possible

    • Nostaljack

      TRUTH!

      • Xavier

        They could easily turn a guy like Sheamus heel and have him go after Big E.

  • Mike McCarthy

    BREAKING NEWS: Everybody still hates Ryback!!!

    • http://XPoint0Media.com/ JustinV3Point14

      Wouldn’t that count as bad news? LOL

    • BlazeKing

      I don’t. People are quick to “hate” something these days. It’s like they forget that his job is to make you *not* like him…

      Plus, he got a little more cred from me for poking fun at his Skip Sheffield gimmick with “Where’s that sweet cowboy hat you used to wear [JBL]?”

  • Stephen Cash

    Joe Hennig has got to be depressed two opportunities… couldn’t make either work

  • Danny Philippi

    Who does Big E. remind you of, anyone?

    • Stephen Cash

      Bobby Lashley?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ahmed Johnson!

    • Nostaljack

      Yes. He’s totally ripping off Chris Gantner’s gimmick.

    • Cubed56

      a mix of ron simmons and ahmed johnson

    • Yazan Hamdan

      The phrase “WE ARE THE NATION OF DOMINATION!” comes to mind.

    • Xavier

      No one really

    • Mike McCarthy

      Bobby Lashley and Ezekiel Jackson

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Mathews reminds us to vote for the special referee for Sandow vs. Khali. He welcomes Slaughter. Chin up. Chest out. They should select him because he’s been in the company so long, it’s gonna be a fair 1, 2, 3. If you’re voting then you’ve gotta vote for him, and that’s an order!
    Josh: “Voting open now on the WWE App.”
    Slaughter: “Don’t make me have to hurt you.”
    Josh: “Don’t make him have to hurt me.”

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Lol! Josh has some great one liners in these!

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

        I might never be able to forget “that wasn’t very wise, Mr. White” :(

    • Nostaljack

      He looked really old. Wow.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sarge is really old! He’s 65.

  • Danny Philippi

    BCS Championship Game update: Seminoles 3 – Tigers 0. 6:30 in the first.

  • Seth

    Hot-Rod. Kind’a wish they were louder for him though.

    • Xavier

      A lot of fans weren’t even born when he was wrestling

      • Mike McCarthy

        He was wrestling 30 years ago

        • Mike McCarthy

          that’s a LONG time

      • Seth

        This is where a 1 minute vignette as a reminder would be good.

  • Stephen Cash

    YEeeeeeeeeSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Seth

    HAHAHA! Ambrose wearing a jacket. That’s awesome. Plus Ambrose and Piper in the same ring with microphones? This could be fun.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That looks like new mech!

  • Stephen Cash

    I do hate that Ambrose never defends the title….

    • Xavier

      That title is useless. They need to go ahead and merge the US/IC title together

      • Stephen Cash

        Why couldn’t they just make some of his single matches title matches…?

        • Xavier

          No one knows the awnser except Vince himself

  • Yazan Hamdan

    I love that prop that Dean Ambrose has around his waist!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “Who gave this old man a live microphone?” LOL!!!

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

    Piper said only Punk can match him on the mic.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Xavier gets vindicated by Roddy!

    • Xavier

      Lol. That’s who Punk has always reminded me of

  • Nostaljack

    Ambrose has great facial reactions!!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    What the heck is wrong with Dean’s hair…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’s thinning and is trying to hide it?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That IS Shield merch Ambrose is wearing!!! I NEED IT!!!

  • Xavier

    LOL @ Rollins saying Ambrose was a better US champ then Piper. How? He never defends the title

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

    Ambrose a better US champion? Piper didn’t go 3 months without defending it.

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

    He pinches the cheek

  • Nostaljack

    Piper is actually doing a really good job here! I’m happy to see this!

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

      He is, thank goodness

    • Xavier

      He always does

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It seems very free and loose!

  • Stephen Cash

    In breaks from Raw I think the SHIELD should break up…. then when they are together I change again. Every week!!! When will it end???

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WHOA! Roman getting intense! YES!

    • Seth

      That’s what you call a line filled with menace.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That’s what you call a line that makes a man. If you can relay that much without saying hardly anything, then you are setting up for a good future!

        • Xavier

          Exactly. CHEESY JOKE ALERT, Roman will REIGN supreme in 2014

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That made me smile dude!

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

    New Age Outlaws!

  • Mike McCarthy

    NAO!!!

  • Yazan Hamdan

    New Age Outlaws!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ONE MORE MATCH! Heck, One more Tag Title run!!!

    • David Jr.

      I for sure would love to hear, “Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Children of all ages, Degeneration X proudly presents to you, its WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD, the Road Dogg Jesse James, the Bad Ass Billy Gunn, the New Age Outlaws.”

    • Seth

      Just give us Road Dogg on the mic. That alone is worth it.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Road Dogg would make an awesome manager for an up and coming star!

        • Seth

          He’d make a difference for someone who is talented but isn’t a spectacular mic man. You do have to find the right fit character and chemistry wise though.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Both of them can still go in the ring, I wish they’d return for a longer stint

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

    Good segment.

  • Stephen Cash

    Piper New US champion!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    Big E./Axel Match: 5/10
    Ryback’s commentating: -2/10
    Piper’s Pit: 8/10 (Segment of the Night so far)

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’d give Ryback -4/10!

      • Seth

        I give Ryback a bigger minus than the negative temperatures outside.

  • Danny_Boy

    I’m not looking forward to Punk/Reigns at all. Punk is just gonna bury Reigns just like he does every other rising star he faces.

    • Cubed56

      get out of here with that garbage.

      • Danny_Boy

        How is that garbage? Who has Punk ever out over? He beat the Shield clean 1 on 3 and buried Ryback when he was super over and killed any momentum that Axel had.

        • Nostaljack

          Axel had no momentum.

        • Mike McCarthy

          So CM Punk is the head of the creative team now?

          • Danny_Boy

            No but he does have a lot of pull backstage like Orton.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Guess you don’t remember Punk going 14 months without a PPV win.

        • Cubed56

          Axel killed himself before he got going, Ryabck killed himself by crying and bitching about everything. Yes he beat the shield 1 on 3, but that because a spear by reigns to ambrose to further the dissention angle of the shield.

          • Danny_Boy

            Funny you mention crying & b***ing because Punk has done a whole lot of that backstage thru out his career but because its Punk he gets a pass from fans and Vince

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Alright guys, let’s keep things moving along. You both have opinions and neither of you will change the other’s mind.

          • Cubed56

            we are just talking, this is what this site is for.

          • Cubed56

            your right, the difference is he earned the right to complain and have an opinion he served his time and paid his dues, ryback was bitching after being there less then 3 months. Answer me this, who is your favorite superstar ever, and how many people has he put over? Just because guys like cena, punk, rock, and Austin don’t put get pinned a lot, doesn’t mean they don’t put people over, there are lots of other ways to put people over other then them pinning you.

          • Danny_Boy

            The Rock, Bret Hart & Randy Savage are my all time favorites.

          • Cubed56

            who did those guys put over? About as many as punk I bet. I respect your opinion, but all of the “big” stars rarely ever put anybody over.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Somehow, I doubt it. If any one of the Shield was going to go over clean, it’s Reigns.

      • Stephen Cash

        It will end in a no contest

  • Seth

    Piper’s best gift…always will be his ability to talk. Was then, still is now.

  • Cubed56

    its just to soon to break up the shield, I don’t see any good in breaking them up. Im holding out faith for a feud against the wyatts, but even if that doesn’t happen, I still see no good reason to break them up now, if anyone can give a good reason they should break up sooner then later, id like to hear it.

    • David Jr.

      Roman Reigns could be the next big thing in wrestling (him or Big E.) and maybe the Shield is holding him back?

      • Stephen Cash

        No Way. All three of them could be the next big thing

        • Cubed56

          all three could also flop

        • Seth

          I think Ambrose has the highest floor where as Reigns has the highest ceiling if you want to talk potential. Again, I worry about Rollins of the three just because I don’t think of much of him as a promo. He’s more natural as a face, though.

      • Cubed56

        possibly yes, I however don’t feel Reigns is ready for the mega push, ive got a bad feeling it wont go good for him or rollins if they split now.

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      I think that they may be rushing into this too. I think they should build up Reigns for a few more months with some proper singles matches, let him get some much needed experience and a bit of a track record before letting him loose. I can understand the allure of wanting to break Reigns off but I think he needs some experience in singles matches before breaking off on his own. My biggest fear is that Reigns fizzles out like Ryback if they break him off too early.

      • Cubed56

        that is exactly what I fear also

      • Xavier

        Not gonna happen. Reigns and Ryback aren’t similar in anyway

        • Cubed56

          I don’t think similarities have anything to do with it, I just feel its too early.

    Hey guys! I’m typing this comment live from RAW! Been waiting for Disqus to load since I got here, haha.

    • Nostaljack

      COOL!!!! Hope you’re having a great time!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Woot! Be sure to send KB some pics!

      • The Breaker

        I didn’t see your reply or think of doing that! Not much of a photographer.

    • Seth

      Enjoy the show man.

    • David Jr.

      Disqus causing problems, wow there’s a shock.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’ve had a lot less since we changed the layout, but I understand the feeling!

        • David Jr.

          I still have problems.

        • David Jr.

          I thinked I just jinxed myself, I can’t get disqus to work on WNW at all now.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Mathews says it’s been a productive night and reminds us to vote. He welcomes another candidate, Arn Anderson. Arn out in a referee outfit. He asks why he should be voted for. He says because he’s already dressed. He says he didn’t get to be the enforcer out of a gum ball machine, he says you need to earn things here and that’s what he’ll make Sandow do.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Was it classic AA style?

      • Mike McCarthy

        unfortunately, I don’t think so

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Subdued, yet kind of intense?

          • Mike McCarthy

            ….holy crap…..that’s exactly how he was

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

    Purple Sin Cara!

  • Nostaljack

    Alberto Del Midcard!

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

    Oh Brother. I was enjoying not seeing ADR.

  • Seth

    I’m kind’a tired of this match up. The crowd has gone completely mild.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    With those tats, Purple is not a good color for Huni-Cara!

    • Nostaljack

      It’s like Fandancara!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ADR is back from his concussion! Glad to see he is well.

  • Seth

    The Cara-Del Rio characters have met TWO HUNDRED TIMES since they’ve been on the roster regardless of who is wearing the damn mask you IDIOT!

  • Nostaljack

    The crowd is dead silent.

    • Seth

      I can hear the popcorn guy in the nose bleeders shout POPCORN and now I want to go get myself some popcorn…

      • Stephen Cash

        I still have one of those three kind Christmas tubs… You think its stills good?

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

    I’ll will be shocked if Sin Cara wins a 3rd match against ADR.

    • Stephen Cash

      Prepare to be shocked… it will happen

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

        What did I say?

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      Huni Cara has been going over Ryback at the live events, so don’t be too surprised if he goes over here too tonight

  • Stephen Cash

    Why does WWE have to WAY over do things, we haveseen this matchup 80 times….. Also I refuse to like Cara until those ridiculous lights go away.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wow, and those lights make him look even worse!

  • Seth

    That low superkick is a good finish for Del Rio. I will say that.

    • Nostaljack

      Anything’s better than that cross arm breaker.

      • Seth

        Plus there’s the dynamic of you can hit that superkick anytime, anywhere. It’ll make his matches pick up right away just by teasing it if you establish it.

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

    Shut Up Del Rio!

  • Stephen Cash

    He doesn’t deserve to use Sweet Chin Music

  • Stephen Cash

    Oh GOD…. NOOOOOOO… Batista vs ADR!!!! Worst Nightmare

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Will ADR be Batista’s first victim

  • Danny Philippi

    Del Rio talking like he still recovering from concussion symptoms.

  • Xavier

    I wouldn’t mind seeing the Enforcer out there

    • Seth

      Arn would be really good. Even better if you give him a microphone too. One of the better one liner guys the business ever had, too.

      • Nostaljack

        Truth! Very underrated talker.

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

    This past summer I met Shark Boy. :)

    • Stephen Cash

      Taylor Lautner

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Oh SHELL YEAH!!!

  • Stephen Cash

    I really wish JoMo would come back…

    • Mike McCarthy

      Don’t get me started

      • Alex Gallardo

        Your profile picture speaks for itself.

      • Stephen Cash

        He was SO talented!!! and had a lot of potential on the mic?

      • Stephen Cash

        I hate how they use Kofi to try and replace his talent in the RR

    • Danny Philippi

      If Dolph Ziggler wrestles tonight, your wish will come true.

      • Stephen Cash

        I love Ziggleypuff, but I think JoMo was WAY more talented

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Mathews AGAIN welcomes a candidate for the app vote. Bob Backlund. He comes out and he says he doesn’t care what they think because he’s gonna give it 100% Josh tells him that he should care because they’re the ones voting. Backlund uses a bunch of made up words that I really couldn’t follow and walks away.

    • Nostaljack

      Backlund is the worst on the mic. He’s the absolute worst.

      • Seth

        I think that’s his gimmick…that he’s crazy. Back in the 90s when he did the Crazy Bob deal with the heel turn it got over because you legitimately thought he was off his walker. Now it looks a little silly but then? It worked.

        • Nostaljack

          It doesn’t look like he’s off his rocker; he really is off his rocker. He wanted to come back after the HOF ceremony and put guys over. LOL!!

          • Mike McCarthy

            I have to agree with Seth, I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to be his gimmick.

          • Nostaljack

            Oh, I get that. He’s just really bad at pulling it off. Did you see his HOF speech? It was…something.

          • Seth

            Anyone that is a wrestler has to be a little off their rocker. :P

            That being said…just about everyone that is in the industry puts him over as a really really classy guy so I have no issues with that. :P

  • Bill Jacobs

    Why doesnt Ambrose defend the title. I thought champions had to defend the title every 30 days. Care to explain WWE?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Simple, WWE forgets that rule when convenient. AKA, the last 5 years.

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

        In short. Kayfabe. They only use the rule when they have to.

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

    Next week we’ll see Wyatt and Bryan in action.

  • Nostaljack

    I hated that promo. All of it.

  • Hank

    If it’s not backlund I riot

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, it looks like they are trying to keep Bryan as himself despite the joining of the family… I’m mixed on that.

    • Nostaljack

      I hate what it’s doing to their aesthetic. They shouldn’t look like a faction. They should look like an impenetrable and odd family.

  • Danny Philippi

    Goldust can enroll in any “school” he wants.

  • Nostaljack

    The Apple phone…wake up, JBL!

  • Xavier

    I’m done with this Real American gimmick stuff. The WWE dropped the ball on this a long time ago. How am I suppose to buy a European in a group that’s suppose be against immigrants

    • Nostaljack

      Me too. I don’t care about Swagger at all and my investment in Cesaro is waning fast. Even Colter has been neutered.

      • Stephen Cash

        Love Cesaro, but he needs to break off

      • Xavier

        Agreed. Atleast stick Ryback & Axel in there. They’d atleast be more believable in this role in Cesero. Cesaro should be feuding with guys like Cena, Punk & Bryan.

        • Nostaljack

          Agreed. Cesaro deserves far better.

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

    I just cracked up seeing that Sneak Free Zone sign!

    BCS Championship Game update: Tigers 14- Seminoles 3. 13:48 left in the second quarter.

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

      Go SEC!

      • David Jr.

        If Conner Cooke would have been named the starter at the beginning of the season, SEC may not even have a team in the BCS game tonight.

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

          No conference can stand up to a full Prepared and motivated SEC team.

          • David Jr.

            But if Cooke started at the beginning of the Season the Spartans beat the Irish, Spartans are undefeated and face Seminoles tonight.

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

            Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda right?

          • David Jr.

            I’m actually a Wolverine fan and hate the Spartans, but Spartans had the best defense in the country, they’d have given both these teams tonight a battle.

          • Cubed56

            Isnt Auburn undefeated?

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

            no. 1 loss. I think it was to LSU.

          • Cubed56

            that’s right

  • Scooter

    GOLDUST WITH THE HURICANRANA!!!!! I think I spelled it right!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Oh, and for a football shout out, my Arkansas State Red Wolves won the Go Daddy.com Bowl for the 2nd year in a row last night!

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: I had troubles with my connection to the App, all I saw was the very last part which was Cesaro using the swing on Cody Rhodes

  • Stephen Cash

    When it comes to football I’m a HOOSIER!!!!!….. enough said

  • Xavier

    Cesaro’s back has to be killing him for carrying Swagger for so long

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed! Swags needs to be quietly dropped into obscurity.

      • Xavier

        Should of happened years ago. I was always against him being repackaged and getting another main event push to begin with. I knew either he A. He wouldn’t stay over or B. He would screw it up somehow

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Agreed, but I was so hyped to see Dutch I didn’t care!

          • Xavier

            Not even Dutch could get Swagger over lol

          • Seth

            It’s all about finding the right fits.

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

    That kick was coming into your house courtesy of Cesaro

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Thank the Overlords I don’t have a 3D TV!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I lost the glasses to mine, but when I did watch WWE in 3D it felt like only the logo was in 3D.

  • Seth

    Good interplay with the anklelock there.

  • Stephen Cash

    Colter and Cesaro turn on Swaggs, and we never see him again… one can dream

    • Xavier

      Cesaro turns on both of them and feuds with guys like Cena, Bryan & Punk. A immigrant joining forces with a anti-immigrant group was dumb to begin with

      • Stephen Cash

        Good point

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

    The final Cut still is an awesome move.

  • Seth

    OMG, the champions win a non-title match. Is the world ending?

  • Danny Philippi

    Cody looks like he took the ankle lock hard. Still love his tenacity.

  • Nostaljack

    DDP!

    DDP!!!!!!!

        It’s not a bad thing, It’s a good thing!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I like you! You like you! And you REALLY like me!

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

            I bow down before you.

          • Seth

            At least he didn’t say he wanted his Sara.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I was a huge DDP fan, so his lines are second nature to me!

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

            I was as well. DDP was why I watched WCW in in 2000.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    DDP! His yoga is slowly helping me with my back pain!

  • Xavier

    DDP is one of my all-time favs. A real crime that he went under at Halloween Havoc

  • k!ng

    Baang!

  • Seth

    DAMN!

    Damn!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    DAMN

  • Danny Philippi

    This segment brought to you by Turner Classic TV.

    • Seth

      Hey, they were all former WCW World Heavyweight Champions.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And Ron was the first major promotion African American WHC!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Is it bad that I want DDP as a 4th option now?

  • Seth

    It’s probably late on the sports talk but… YES YES YES YES YES YES YES! WVU is 2-0 in conference play in basketball!

  • Mike McCarthy

    No App Update because it’s the final chance to vote and you can’t access the polls when a live video is streaming

  • Seth

    Maybe I’m too old school but they really have to stop not showing entrances at all. It doesn’t come across as very flattering.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rajin Singh!

  • Mike McCarthy

    RANJIN SINGH IS BACK!!!!!

    • Xavier

      I marked out big time for that. Okay I’m just kidding lol

      • Mike McCarthy

        Lol, it’s the little things

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sarge!

  • Nostaljack

    SLAUGHTER!

  • Xavier

    Boooooooooooooooooooo, wanted to see the Enforcer. Oh well

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

    I wanted Arn

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

    Not surprised. Slaughter is still all-time popular.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I voted for Backlund just because nobody ever votes for him

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Is Ranjin (err Dave) still writing for Raw?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      As far as I remember, he is.

  • Seth

    Slaughter looks kind’a weird without hair to me.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sarge is an absolute must meet for any true fan. He’ll sit and talk to you for hours. One of the best people I have ever met.

    • Xavier

      Agree with that. I meet him and he’s really good. I met JR once and to my surprise he wasn’t very nice at all. It’s interesting meeting some of these guys and finding out who’s cool and who’s not

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I met him in San Antonio prior to a Raw with Bobby Lashley. I was in uniform and they happened to walk into the IHOP I was eating at with my family. Sarge greeted everyone in uniform, signed autographs, and talked with anyone who cared to. Lashley was pretty cool too.

    • Seth

      Best one I met was Terry Funk. He was awesome as well.

      • Xavier

        Dwayne Johnson & Mick Foley were really cool when I met them as well

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Interesting story, my great grandmother actually babysat the Funk brothers! I have to see if I can find the pictures of her and them and scan them up on here.

    • Cubed56

      this may surprise a lot of you, but the best wrestler ive ever met was Raven.

      • Xavier

        Interesting

        • David Jr.

          Raven is the most intelliegent wrestler in history, well at least he has the highest IQ.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Val Venis is a close second. I’ve heard that you never get into a philosophical debate with him.

          • David Jr.

            I learned Raven had the highest IQ from you.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            LOL! From my Trivia series?

          • David Jr.

            Yes, I believe I actually was the one who guessed Raven, and I was right.

        • Cubed56

          I don’t even know how to explain it, hes just completely different from the rest.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Raven was really awesome too. Such a brilliant mind. I had fun picking his mind and hearing what influenced his character decisions.

        • Cubed56

          absolutely. it was amazing to see just how much different the real life person is from his wrestling persona.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I’ve only met the Sandman, and I was very young so I don’t remember much, but I plan on doing a lot of standing in line at WrestleMania Axxess

  • Stephen Cash

    What happened to Sandow… I was never a fan, mainly the boing finisher…but he is probably going to loss

  • Danny Philippi

    BCS Championship Game update: Still 14-3 Tigers, but Auburn missed a chip shot field goal. 7:45 left till halftime.

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

    Another blunder by the ref this time by sarge.

  • Nostaljack

    So they’re turning this into an angle. LOL!!

    • Seth

      If you heard a loud thud…that was my forehead hitting my desk.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Why not? WWE can’t come up with anything better for Sandow seems.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Talk about a fair and balanced match..

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This is irony! Sandow, as Idol Stevens, used the Cobra Clutch as a finisher!

  • Mike McCarthy

    I have to admit, I didn’t pay an ounce of attention to this match

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Sandow vs Khali 3 next week

  • Danny Philippi

    BCS Championship Game update: Tigers now up 21-3 with 5:01 to go till halftime.

  • Xavier

    This RAW has been pretty average so far. Hopefully things pick up with Lesnar

    • Mike McCarthy

      Didn’t feel like finding our old comments but Heyman just called him the “Self-proclaimed #1 Contender”. Hope that clears up any confusion.

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

    Eat Sleep Conquer Repeat. that’s awesome

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That is another shirt I will want to have.

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

    Enough talk. I want to see someone destroyed!

  • Stephen Cash

    Big E is going to come out

    • Mike McCarthy

      That would make sense in terms of storyline but there’s no point in burying an up & coming star

    • Nostaljack

      I seriously doubt that.

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

    Hogan and Austin Name drops.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      As well as Bruno!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    UGH! I never noticed it until now, but that’s a fugly cauliflower ear Lesnar has!

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

    Being Old School RAW I have to think someone Old School Is going to come out.

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

    I’m sorry but *yawn*

    20 minute promo of doom

  • Mike McCarthy

    Out comes Henry!!

    Mark Henry again

  • Mike McCarthy

    Henry vs. Lesnar at RR

  • Mike McCarthy

    Henry has a bloody nose

  • Nostaljack

    Blood

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anyone else wish Henry had come out to his Sexual Chocolate theme just to pay tribute to Mae Young?

  • Xavier

    Kind of wish this Lesnar/Henry stuff resulted in a match at the Rumble with them being built as equals going into the match. Henry has looked like a complete scrub during both these confrontations

  • Seth

    Brock’s face there was GIF worthy.

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

    We aren’t going to see henry for a long time. I hope we can still get a Big E/Henry match for mania but it’s not likely now.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Big Show!!!

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

    Here comes the Big Show!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Scratch that, Lesnar vs. Big Show at RR

  • Nostaljack

    WEEELLLL

  • Xavier

    Okay nevermind, guess it’ll be Lesnar/Big Show. I’m cool with that

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Now Lesnar is scared!

    • Xavier

      The only time I ever bought Lesnar as a face was when he was feuding with Big Show in 2002. I actually marked out for Lesnar then

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

    I just stopped yawning

    • Mike McCarthy

      If watching something that’s only being done for the second time in around ten years makes you yawn then just stop watching.

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

        Listening to paul talk about lesner has been done only twice in ten years?

        • Mike McCarthy

          LOL, nice try. I was referring to Lesnar fighting Henry. If your problem is with promos then I’ll say it again, stop watching. There are multiple promos each and every week.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Alright guys, quit the bickering. Let’s move on.

          • Xavier

            You’ve been playing peace maker a lot tonight lol

          • Cubed56

            ive noticed what Xavier said also, whats the deal?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No clue, but it seems things are a bit tense tonight. We’ve had some issues of late, so the hammer is quicker to come down.

          • Cubed56

            understandable.

          • Xavier

            Jesse “The Hammer” Sherwood as a nice ring to it

          • Jesse Sherwood

            :) I may just have to start using that!

          • Cubed56

            sounds like a pornstar lol

          • Xavier

            LMFAO, I literally laughed out loud at that

          • Cubed56

            as did I when you first wrote it

  • Cubed56

    Henry to the shelf again, time for him to hang it up for real.

  • David Jr.

    Mark Henry, Big Show, Brock Lesnar, Or the Ring Breakers.

    Lesnar is running like a scalded dog.

  • Mike McCarthy

    ….Lesnar just did a backflip

    • Mike McCarthy

      front flip…. brain fart

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No, not Lesnar flipping again! He’ll break his neck!!!

        • Mike McCarthy

          If you look at how he landed he easily could’ve

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “My client doesn’t fight for free!” Didn’t he just fight Henry for free?

    • Mike McCarthy

      That’s the whole point!! He just says that when he thinks Brock will lose.

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

      You are trying to apply Logic to the illogical.

        Lol, that’s the point! WWE Logic at its finest!

        Well, heels that are supposed to be astute yet slimey scumbags as portrayed by Heyman are supposed to have holes basic logic, so I’ll give em the benefit of the doubt.

  • Cubed56

    that was actually a nasty bump lesnar took

  • Xavier

    Face Lesnar vs Hell Big Show was very effective in 2002/2003 and now Face Big Show vs Heel Lesnar seems just as effective. Segment of the night so far. I’m looking forward to this

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Well the matches Lesnar and Show had in 2003 were good. Lesnar needs to go over Big Show though. Lesnar can not look to weak on the road to Mania

    • Xavier

      He’ll go over for sure

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

      Especially if he is going to face Taker.

      • Xavier

        If he wins the strap before Mania he may very well not be facing Taker.

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

          True, unless Taker wants to retire at 30 as champ.

        • Cubed56

          he might not anyways after takers most recent surgery. talk is taker may not be able to have the the type of physical match it would be with Lesnar, new talk is possibly DB vs taker or even what we all want in cena vs taker

          • Xavier

            If we got Cena/Taker and Bryan/Lesnar for the strap I’d mark out big time

          • Cubed56

            that would be awesome

          • Cubed56

            that would be awesome

  • Stephen Cash

    I find Big Show extremely boring and dull as a face… He is really good as a dominant heel. Like when he held the ECW title

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Over the weekend I actually looked at Lesnar and Show’s Stretcher Match From Judgement Day 2003 and it was quite good especially the finish.

    • Xavier

      They’ve always has very good chemistry.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        I saw the match before up to where Mysterio came out but I never actually saw the ending where Lesnar whipped out the forklift until Saturday when I recently watched it. When Lesnar also hit the running power bomb on Big Show that was sick

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

  • Stephen Cash

    When Randy said he was going old school I thought he meant Legend Killer on Flair

  • Mr.V

    Goddamn Paul Heyman Big Show is so friggin awesome!! Every. Single. Time. Man that was so intense!!

  • Seth

    Brock and Show huh. There’s chemistry there between the two from past meetings. I think they can go back to the well and let Brock go nuts on him.

  • Danny Philippi

  • Taylor

    So now I’m suppose to believe that big show went from a crying baby with no money to a bad ass who can toss lesnar around?! Makes sense…

    • Xavier

      YES it makes plenty of sense actually. Big Show’s toughness was never in question during the crying angle. Big Show was crying because he was being forced to compromise his moral beliefs or lose his job while being in a tight place financially

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Mathews says it wasn’t long ago when there were two title in WWE. He then welcomes Ron Simmons, he recaps Orton unifying the titles. He says anyone that has won that belt understands how anyone that has won the title feels. He says it was very good to see it happen but he wished it was 20 years prior so he could do it! Feed cut out so I missed this question but he says that there’s one thing that every man in the business dreams of and that’s winning a world championship. He talks about how people go up to him and thank him for being the first african-american world champion. They then show a clip of him beating Vader.

  • Taylor

    Also lesnar has some serious ups

  • Taylor

    Also lesnar has some serious ups

  • Stephen Cash

    Just went back and watched Lesnar break his neck!!! Forgot about that… ouch

  • Stephen Cash

    Just went back and watched Lesnar break his neck!!! Forgot about that… ouch

  • Mike McCarthy

    WHY IS AKSANA IN THE RING, NO WWE YOU MADE ME WATCH HER TWICE LAST WEEK. THIS JUST ISNT FAIR.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WHY IS AKSANA IN THE RING, NO WWE YOU MADE ME WATCH HER TWICE LAST WEEK. THIS JUST ISNT FAIR.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Oh jeez… Bellas vs. Aksana and Alicia Fox… Train wreck inbound!

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      Drinks Break. Hopefully this match will be over till the time I return

      • Jesse Sherwood

        This is the kind of match that makes me want to drink!

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        I can’t go from watching Emma vs Natalya to watching this…. I just can’t

    • Seth

      I predict badness…

    • Xavier

      And no Naomi smdh

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Oh jeez… Bellas vs. Aksana and Alicia Fox… Train wreck inbound!

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

    WWE seems to be trying to push Aksana some lately.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Thank you for putting my nightmare into words.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Oh Overlords no… Don’t let it be so!

  • Mr.V

    When will Paul Heyman run wwe so we can see cool stuff like that all show long with all the characters??

    • Mike McCarthy

      At this point he could start a new promotion and bring a large portion of the WWE audience with him…..somebody should let Jeff Jarrett know that.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        As long as Paul never touches the money or TR departments, I’m cool with that!

    • Mr.V

      I mean, wasn’t Big Show like a baby or something a few weeks ago? One segment and he’s a baddass. Heyman is a genius. The fact that he doesn’t run a promotion is a sin.

  • Stephen Cash

    Aksana just botched falling on someones leg… How is that possible?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “Aksana’s really improved in the ring of late.” No, Cole she hasn’t. Quit lying for VKM!

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

    Brie Bella is leaps and bounds better now. Thank you Daniel Bryan

    • Xavier

      She’s still not very good though.

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

    Aksana pinned Brie.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WHAT THE HELL NO THIS IS ABSOLUTE TORTURE

  • Xavier

    AKSANA WINS! Lol

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

    Aksana’s win proves that picture I posted in Ask WNW.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    After watching that excellent Emma and Natalya Match on NXT to watching that……….

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

    Too Cool is in the House!!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Wait……I FIGURED IT OUT!! I think Aksana could be replacing Jojo on Total Divas….why else would WWE be pushing her when she has no talent

  • Nostaljack

    SCOTTY!!!!!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    They should keep the NXT Divas on NXT where they can actually shine and wrestle well

  • Seth

    GMS looks a hell’va lot healthier than he did the last time he was on WWE programming.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He was in a bit of a rough place then. He’s been doing a lot of self improvement.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Brian Christopher in the house!

  • Mike McCarthy

    SCOTTY TOO HOTTY HOLY S#!T!!!!! I’M FREAKING OUT RIGHT NOW!!!! HE’S FINALLY BACK!!!!!!!!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I knew that you would be marking out.

      • Mike McCarthy

        I’M TOTALLY MARKING OUT AND I LOVE YOUR PROFILE PICTURE

        • Alex Gallardo

          Thanks, I always thought that Mac Miller and Ariana Grande would be a really cute couple.

          • Cubed56

            mac miller is a huge sellout in my opinion

          • Mike McCarthy

            I can understand your point because his music really has changed but I don’t think that it’s because of his label or anything because he produces all of his music himself. You still could be right though.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Totally, even though you can tell he’s on drugs right now.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Eh, I still think his music is dope. Too bad we never got to hear his song with Miley Cyrus.

  • Xavier

    You think Brodus Clay and Rikishi will have a run in tonight?

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

    I never thought I would see Brian Christopher in a WWE Ring again.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Me either, so I’m a bit happy. I hope he takes this as a milestone.

      • Xavier

        CHEESY JOKE ALERT: Brian Christopher & Scotty 2 Hotty being on RAW brings back TOO MUCH emotion and is TOO COOL

    • Stephen Cash

      Why?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He had some serious issues that led to his release a number of years ago. I won’t go into a lot of details, but lets just say he’s a lot better of a person now.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Bad connection but I joined at Mysterio talking about Daniel Wyatt. He says he’s stuck between a rock and a hard place. He thinks that Daniel Bryan had no other choice but to join The Wyatt Family. Mathews asks if he’s made plans for WrestleMania. He says he hasn’t but he’s very excited for the Royal Rumble.

  • Nostaljack

    HEATH!!

  • Danny Philippi

    got back from the bathroom and … NOOOOOOOOO!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Glad to see Heath is back from his personal issues.

    • Xavier

      Three Man Band Babee!

      • Nostaljack

        YES! YES! YES!

    • David Jr.

      Personal issues? I thought his wife had a baby?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I never heard anything for sure, but if so, YAY!!!

        • David Jr.

          That’s what I thought Richard said.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’ve not been in the loop as much as I’d like of late. I may have missed that.

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

            Richard said he thought it but was never able to confirm it.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’M MARKING OUT RIGHT NOW

    • Nostaljack

      WE KNOW!

  • Mike McCarthy

    I never realized how much Sexay looked like his dad (Lawler)

    • Nostaljack

      Spitting image

    • Xavier

      Not so much when he was younger but now it’s obvious

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Trust me, if you saw him and daddy in USWA, it was painfully obvious.

  • Mike McCarthy

    HE TAGGED IN

  • Mike McCarthy

    THE ELBOW DROP OMG

  • Mike McCarthy

    Just look at him, he’s totally still got it.

  • Mike McCarthy

    HE’S GONNA DO THE WORM

  • Xavier

    I still smile when Scotty 2 Hotty sets up for the worm

  • Mike McCarthy

    THAT WAS THE BEST MOMENT OF MY LIFE

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

    for some reason I just thought of Rick Steiner.

  • Seth

    Scotty is in ridiculously good shape for his age.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’s a firefighter now, so no wonder!

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

      He’s only 40

      • Seth

        Many people are lucky to look like that at 20.

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

          good point

    • David Jr.

      He’s younger than the Rock.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Yes but he was never the most ripped guy. The bigger wrestlers are the longer they last

  • Mike McCarthy

    I just screamed W-O-R-M and I think my mother is angry

  • Mike McCarthy

    Words can’t explain how excited I just got for the worm, I thought I’d never see it on Raw again

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Are we going to see Rikishi “Put a Little A** On It”?

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

    Time to Dance!

  • Xavier

    I feel like The Usos should of been involved in this segment

    • Mike McCarthy

      They involved them the last time Rikishi returned so it kinda evens out

      • Xavier

        That’s true

  • Nostaljack

    791 at 10:30. Can we do it?

    • Seth

      We’ll see.

  • Taylor

    Brian Christopher with more in-ring time than zack ryder in the last 6 months lol.

    …. Why did I think Rikishi was dead?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because Umaga was. They were related.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Oh crap, you beat me too it. Damn you Jesse!!

      • Xavier

        Everyone of those guys was related except Samoa Joe. Talk about feeling like the odd man out

      • Bill

        Was? How can you be “formerly discussed”? :)

    • Mike McCarthy

      Umaga is dead, that might have been the confusion

  • Matt

    this raw doesn’t feel right with Daniel Bryan and the crowd not gojng crazy. it’s a step back wards

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Mathews mentions the groundbreaking announcement on Wednesday. Goes over all the promotional info including who will be there, when it is and how to watch it. The only other thing he mentioned is that Roddy Piper will be on the App later.

  • David F.

    Rikishi looked dangerously obese in ring tonight. He should do some DDP yoga to help him lose lbs.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Guys, question from KB: Has Alicia Fox had some work done? She seemed larger tonight.

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

      I did not notice. then again I didn’t look. ;/

    • Cubed56

      No, just a tighter top

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That’s what I thought!

    • Xavier

      Not sure, haven’t really paid her any mind since she turned herself into Rihanna 2.0 she looked so much better before the make over

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

    The Godfather! *marks*

  • Alex Gallardo

    It’s the Godfather!

  • Xavier

    Welcome aboard the HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO train

  • Mike McCarthy

    Scotty Too Hotty for HoF

    • Alex Gallardo

      You really like him, don’t you?

      • Mike McCarthy

        My favorite wrestlers are
        1. Scotty Too Hotty
        2. John Morrison
        3. CM Punk (formerly Mysterio)

        • Alex Gallardo

          Interesting, I have never heard someone say that Scotty Too Hotty is their favorite wrestler of all time, but cool.

          • Mike McCarthy

            You can never watch The Worm without a smile on your face.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Seeing him back on Raw doing The Worm made me mark as much as I did when Santino & Kozlov won the Tag Titles (Santino is my #5, former #4)

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And The Godfather leads the Legends out like the Ho Train…

    • Xavier

      He put Victoria over lol

  • Nostaljack

    IRS’ reaction was terrible!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He isn’t as remembered as some of the others on the stage, but he will always hold a special spot in my heart!

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

    I was a big IRS fan as a child.

    • Xavier

      Lol really? that’s the 1st I’ve ever heard anyone say that

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I loved the gimmick when I was a kid! Granted, I also loved Ted Dibiase!

        • Seth

          Dibiase was a phenomenal bad guy.

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

        I was young enough i just enjoyed what entertained me. I was born in 87 so I would have been 4 to 5 when Money Inc was big.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’M AFRAID I’VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Who would have guessed BNB would appear here?

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

    Here comes Bad New Barrett. Ugh

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Barrett, I have some Bad News for you! This is a waste of your talent!!!

    • Stephen Cash

      You mean the talent he doesn’t have? Given so many opportunities…. boring in the ring, sucks on the mic.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I admit his ring skills is a bit lacking, but I blame that more on the moveset he’s been utilizing. It doesn’t work right for him. As for his mic work, well, it sounds bad but his best stuff is when he isn’t trying to be so serious. He’s a riot on the JBL and Cole Show!

  • Nostaljack

    I want to hate Barrett doing this but I can’t!

    • Xavier

      I can, it’s pretty easy actually

      • Nostaljack

        LOL! I kinda liked it this time! I’m cool with being alone…LOL!!

  • Xavier

    Wade Barrett, Curtis Axel, Ezekial Jackson, Alicia Fox, Asksana, Tensai, Cameron, Evan Borne, The Great Khali Camucho, Drew McIntyre, Jack Swagger & Jinder Mahal are all dead weight now

    • Stephen Cash

      McIntyre and Bourne can be salvaged

      • Nostaljack

        I’M AFRAID I’VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        McIntyre, yes. Bourne is one strike from a firing anyways, so if I was in charge, I wouldn’t want to take the chance. Great talent, but wasted due to his own stupidity.

        • Mike McCarthy

          So is Orton though!!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And thus why I wouldn’t trust him with a top spot either, if I was VKM. He may be a top level guy, but if guys continuously make stupid decisions, then you shouldn’t treat them as your end all, be all.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I’d say to take Cameron, and Bourne off the list. Cameron, though terrible in ring, has gained a good fan base due to Total Divas. And I always believe that high flyers like Bourne can get over if booked properly. Jackson has a chance to save himself but I think it would take a lot of effort that WWE doesn’t want to use.

    • Mr.V

      Not dead weight, completely used wrong is the answer. Paul. Heyman could run a wwE show featuring only these characters that would kick ass!

  • Danny Philippi

    I hope Punk/Reigns saves the third hour like Lesnar/Show did the second hour.

  • Xavier

    Any chance Batista comes back as a heel or is it a given he returns as a face?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The vignettes almost guarantee face. Those cheers in it will only hype him up more.

    • Cubed56

      ive got a bad feeling we get batista/lesnar at WM

      • Xavier

        I wouldn’t mind that

        • Cubed56

          really? I think it would be lesnar/Goldberg all over again

          • Xavier

            Nah not at all. Batista won’t mail it on like Goldberg in the ring. As a matter of fact Batista usually rises to the occasion in big match ups like that. Not saying he’s the greatest worker in the world but he is light years ahead of Goldberg on the mic and in the ring

          • Cubed56

            very true

          • Seth

            Batista’s a damn entertaining character as a heel even more so and I don’t think Goldberg ever learned how to be one so there’s versatility in his cap more so than Bill.

  • Avalanchian

    I’d rather forget Barrett ever existed than legends

  • http://XPoint0Media.com/ JustinV3Point14

    I am now a fan of Bad News Barrett.

  • Avalanchian

    Reigns either beats Punk or his team intentionally sees he loses.

  • Mike McCarthy

    WWE App Update: Mathews welcomes Roddy Piper, he says Josh is his favorite announcer. Josh asks him what his thoughts were during Pipers Pit. Piper said he didn’t know they came in through the audience and he was staring down at the ramp for a good amount of time. He says they’re the future. He talks about his daughter becoming a psychiatrist. He says CM Punk saved him and now he’ll always be a fan.

    • Nostaljack

      Great natural work from the Hot Rod!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Big match for SmackDown!!!

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

    It’s great to see Mean Gene!

  • Nostaljack

    SCHEME GENE!

    • BlazeKing

      I mean, It’s only $5.99 a minute…

  • David Jr.

    Anyone here ever called the Mean Gene hotline?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I did when I was a kid…

      • David Jr.

        Did people who call, were they the TWC?

  • Mike McCarthy

    More NAO!! Sweet!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    NAO in a match?! HELL YEAH!

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

      Nope. introducing Punk

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, at least they are in his corner, which almost ensures involvement, which leads to a match next week with 2 members of the Shield or a 6 man tag…

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think everybody here knows that the NAO could definitely put together another run.

    • Xavier

      It’s not needed though. The tag division is stacked

      • Mike McCarthy

        Very true, it wouldn’t be helping the business at all. But why not now before it’s too late.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    At least they didn’t censor Billy’s Name. Man the NAO look amazing.

  • Danny Philippi

    Why has Triple H and /or Stephanie not appeared?

  • Stephen Cash

    It’s BG and Kip James!!!

  • Nostaljack

    Why are BG’s ears yellow?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He recently dyed his hair.

    • Taylor

      Self tanner bro

      • Nostaljack

        On his ears?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And they introduced CM Punk? Yay!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    That was cool.

  • Taylor

    Outlaws swag on a hundred million trillion tonight

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

    Time for Regins to go over Punk.

  • Danny Philippi

    BCS Championship Game update: Tigers 21 – Seminoles 13. 6:05 left in the third quarter.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I love the fact that Ambrose is wearing the New Shield Hoodie. And I think Reigns will go over Punk here. It won’t surprise me.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I MUST OWN IT!!!

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        As Must I (Plus their New T Shirt too lol)

    • Seth

      The hoodie suits Dean. It kind’a makes him look more grungy which he sort’a is already.

      • Cubed56

        all the more reason I don’t see the shield breaking up soon, they wouldn’t put brand new merch on the shelves if they were breaking up in the near future

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Umm… They do it a lot. They gave Bryan and Kane a new shirt 2 weeks before they broke up.

          • Cubed56

            lol, i was actually in the middle of typing, “then again this is the wwe”, before I saw your comment.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Don’t you know? Once you start reading WNW for a while, your computer or mobile device implants a chip in your brain that lets me read your thoughts!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And those are just nasty Cubed!

          • Cubed56

            lol

          • Xavier

            Lol

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Got to have some fun with this!

          • Seth

            Now I fear for my life.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Don’t worry, the bomb won’t go off unless I type your specific phrase…

          • Seth

            Oh…shit.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Lol!

          • Cubed56

            for everybodys safety please don’t type the phrase

    Rocket Boosters on standby for Roman Reigns.

  • Sujay

    if the punk vs hhh mania rumors are true, i totally expect new age outlaws to screw punk up tonight… But i just dont wanna see punk vs hhh.. i want to see bryan vs hhh at mania.. it would be a smoothly built up storyline that started at summerslam with bryan finally getting his revenge.. hhh vs punk just feels random and uniteresting,,

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

      not to mention done already recently

      • Xavier

        WWE creative is in a interesting pickle regarding CM Punk. Punk/Bryan would be an ideal match up for Punk at this point and by far the most interesting feud they can do with him. Other then that I don’t know who you put Punk up against at Mania that would feel fresh, new or generate a lot of buzz. Punk/Cesaro would be great but WWE hasn’t build up Cesaro at all to remotely make that a marquee match up for Mania

        • Cubed56

          Austin is the only other choice but we know how you feel about that.

            I feel Austin/Punk would of worked better in 2009 when Punk was doing the SES stuff. My worry with Austin coming back is that he wouldn’t do the right thing and put Punk over. And then of course I wonder what type of shape Austin would be in. 11 years of no ring action and a neck that’s made of glass. I just don’t think Austin is capable of putting on a good match anymore.

          • Cubed56

            I do agree with the concern for Austins neck, I do feel however on the mic theyd be great together.

    am I the only one that misses these old Ref uniforms?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I miss the Bow Ties. Bow Ties are cool.

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

    I’ve overall enjoyed this match so far

  • Jesse Sherwood

    LOVE THE FIST SMASH!!!

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

    Overrun Time

  • Mike McCarthy

    Sorry I haven’t been here for the conclusion. But, I could definitely see Roman Reigns winning this match….I could also see a 6-man tag next week.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I want to see the 6 Man Tag!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    An Elbow to the Chest of Ambrose Michael Cole? Really?

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

    Superman Punch! What A Punch!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Close kick out by Punk!

  • Seth

    FALCON PUNCH!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’s a win!

  • Xavier

    Wow, What a match

    • Nostaljack

      LOVING this!

  • BlazeKing

    If you guys have never seen The Shield face off against each other in FCW, I suggest you go watch that after Raw.

    Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins vs Leake (Roman Reigns).

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

    Another Reason why Reigns is the future.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This is awesome chants!

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

    I agree crowd. “This Is Awesome”

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

    SPEAR!!! And Reigns goes over Punk!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And even if Punk wins clean, he has more than put over Reigns!

  • Seth

    Roman wins thanks to Ambrose.

    • Nostaljack

      Minor interference.

  • Nostaljack

    REIGNS WINS!

  • Xavier

    Danny_Boy where you at homie? Punk just put Reigns over

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

      HE’ll argue that he didn’t put him over because it wasn’t clean.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    REIGNS WINS! REIGNS WINS!

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

    Jake The Snake!

  • Seth

    OH MY GOD! IT’S JAKE F’N ROBERTS!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    JAKE THE SNAKE!!!

  • Stephen Cash

    I’ll eat my words.>> i did not think Punk would do it

  • Nostaljack

    JAKE!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    JAKE ROBERTS!!!!!!!

  • Xavier

    HOLY S*** JAKE ROBERTS!

  • Nostaljack

    He looks so healthy!!!!!

    • Mike McCarthy

      DDP Yoga

      • Nostaljack

        Oh, I know…

  • Mike McCarthy

    THIS MEANS HE MIGHT ACTUALLY MAKE IT TO THE RUMBLE

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Please overlords yes!!!

  • Xavier

    I just marked out like a 7 year old

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Damien?

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

    A Yellow Boa

    • Seth

      I think that was revelations.

  • Cubed56

    HOLY F*****G S**T! Jake the Snake!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The inventor of the DDT is back!!!

  • Nostaljack

    Ambrose is smiling….LOL!!!

  • Seth

    My voice went up 15 octos. That was Jake f’n Roberts!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Ambrose was fighting a smile there

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That is the man that inspired him! You would be too!

      • Seth

        I’d volunteer to have him DDT and have a snake placed on me too.

        • Mike McCarthy

          Moments like that make you happy because the people that do it can still enjoy what they’re doing

  • Cubed56

    LMFAO, Ambrose was smiling as the snake was put on his face.

  • Stephen Cash

    Someone told Jake to keep it PG

    • Seth

      T’was Punk’s voice.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Correction, someone told the snake to keep it PG.

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

    Great Raw IMO.

  • Xavier

    Jake Roberts was such a great heel and talker back in the day. A true mark out moment for me.

    • Nostaljack

      Me too!!!

    • Seth

      Jake might’ve been the greatest manipulator of audiences in the industry at his peak. He could get anything over. I mean anything.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He even helped get that awful Warrior/Shango feud over!

        • Seth

          Give him some hype and let him appear in the Rumble…the entire audience would go absolutely insane.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’d wake my kids, yet again, for it!

          • Seth

            Moments like that can legitimately inspire just about damn near everyone.

          • Xavier

            It’s a given now

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    First Raw in a looooong time that left me speechless at the end. Old School is always cool

  • Danny Philippi

    Told you that Punk/Reigns saved Raw’s third hour. Add The Master of In-Ring Psychology and dessert is on the house. Great ending to Raw, now hope the football game ends well. Good Night.

  • Stephen Cash

    Last time Taker returned this Old School the snake!!!! Slammy for best return goes to jake the snake

  • Scooter

    OMG JAKE ROBERTS!!!!!! What a special moment!!!!!! He has come so far its truly touching to see how much better he is doing! My hat is off to DDP!!!!

  • Avalanchian

    I still remember being at the match between Roberts and Macho Man. Well the wedding ceremony with Elizabeth.

  • Xavier

    I feel overwhelmed, only a legend like Roberts coming back and overshadow a great match like the one Punk/Reigns just put on. I’m in full mark out brain overload mode at the moment, I may need a moment

    • Jeff Ono

      AGREED! Jake The Snake’s surprise return was AWESOME. What a thrill to see him
      standing tall after hitting rock bottom years ago and lifting himself
      back up. Say all you want about DDP Yoga. But Jake did the work. I
      pray that he keeps it up. And if he can somehow pass on knowledge (on
      wrestling psychology) to guys like Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Cody Rhodes
      and others willing to learn, WATCH OUT. Jake was the master of the
      microphone before wrestlers actually wanted a microphone. Great way to
      end RAW!

  • Kleck

    I just marked out! Jake the Snake!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Jake was the reason I fell in love with the DDT as a move. I wanted to use a new variation when I started wrestling way back in the day.

  • tone

    And on this night a Star was born……

    • Nostaljack

      Yes. It was Jake Roberts…and he was reborn.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Many stars aligned tonight. Let’s hope that the captains of the ship can navigate with them properly.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Ambrose and Roberts are going to collide at some point. That will be great.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Anyways Guys. Great Raw Tonight. I am clocking out now, Its after Midnight here. Stay Safe, Stay Strong and Catch you Next Week

    • Nostaljack

      Goodnight, Navin!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Good night Navin!

  • Taylor

    Watching ambrose try to hold back his smile as jake dumped the python on him was my favorite moment all night. Congrats Jake keep up the sobriety brother

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Amen Mr. V.

  • Seth

    Jake Roberts steals the entire show…that was spectacular. It’s been a long time since all of us just about collectively went ‘OMFG’ and all that.

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

    The road to Wrestlemania really got a jump Start tonight!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Even though it was Old School Raw it was still a big surprise to see Jake Roberts. Also amazing to see Scotty Too Hotty return after so long. It was a great night for me.

    • Nostaljack

      It totally came out of nowhere. This was a man who was essentially on the edge of death. Some serious DDP intervention and he came out tonight looking great!

      • Mike McCarthy

        DDP has literally saved lives, and he worked very hard to help some. He deserves a lot more recognition.

        • Nostaljack

          Scott Hall is positively dead without DDP. I saw him doing a Q&A with Kevin Nash & Sean Waltman last week and he looked really good!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Thus why I started using DDP Yoga. I need something to change my body.

  • Xavier

    Alright guys I’m out, ya’ll have a blessed night

    • Nostaljack

      Take it easy, Xavier!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    With a bound and a leap it began,
    The rise of a new man,
    From the ashes of the old,
    The people saw what the legends told,
    Of a man in scales,
    And a serpent’s tail,
    With a mind that burns like fire,
    The people desired,
    Jake Roberts.

  • Nostaljack

    Didn’t hit the record but we bumped up against it. I can respect that. Great RAW! I’ve officially been here for 4 hours so I’m punching out. Goodnight, guys and gals!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night Ed!

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

    I had a blast tonight. These chats are always fun.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Always fun to have you too Josh! Night!

  • Seth

    Time for bed…and if there’s any fans that don’t think magical moments can happen anymore…just watch the end of this show. That was some damn magic.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye Seth! Night!

  • The Breaker

    It was fun being at RAW tonight, despite the fact that it felt like a filler show. There were a couple of very good matches (The Brotherhood vs. The Real Americans, and Punk vs. Reigns), as well as some cool moments (Jake the Snake showing up, Piper’s Pit, Too Cool, NAO, Big Show tossing Lesnar halfway across the ring, and seeing the new Daniel Bryan– even though I think he still acts way too much like his normal self) that made the show well worth seeing. The crowd was hot at all the right moments, which also helped. My only regret is not getting any pictures! There’s a RAW in DC on March 31st (the last one before WrestleMania!) so hopefully I can make it there and take plenty of pictures!

  • markpaul

    seeing punk against shield is way more refreshing and interesting than seeing him around with cena and orton for nth time….personally, i like how punk/bryan/wyatt/shield/big e are being booked while RTWM, its new and new is always better

  • EvilMenace666

    Ranjin Singh is my man,JBL looked like great old school commentator style,Ryback needs a few more months til he reaches championship material,Best thing WWE has done with Daniel Bryan since he came in,Daniel Bryan is exactly where he belong with this modern day outlaw crew,Brock breaks henry’s arm,Big Show tosses Brock like a baby,punk pays tribute the Legendary Macho Man,The shield…well is the Shield,80′s Ric Flair was cool to see,where in thee hell was Brother Love,main point Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton NEEDS to happen…………..its never been done before!!!!

  • Justin

    awesome that jake showed up.
