Conquer. Repeat. Big Show may be a freak of nature, it’s a little known fact that the surgical removal of the pituitary gland to offset the onslaught of acromegaly can lead to the side effect complication of rampant case of stupidity! It is one of the greatest bonehead moves in the history of the WWE for Big Show to pick a fight with my client, Brock Lesnar. It’s one thing for him to chokeslam Swagger, or knock out Zeb. I’m not impressed, and neither is my client, the obvious #1 contender, Brock Lesnar.

          • Xavier

            I’ve been referring to us as such for months now, problem?

          • Alex Gallardo

            Well first, it’s all already been taken by WWE, and it just doesn’t sound very good.

          • Xavier

            LOL

  • Alex Gallardo

    I guess I’m third.

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

    You guys are such goobers! You ready for some RAW?

    • Danny Philippi

      Ready to see who’s in the Rumble. So they can be eliminated by Roman “Rocket” Reigns.

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

        You’re picking RR for the RR?

        • Danny Philippi

          No, but I am picking him for the most eliminations. Over/under 10 for Reigns at the Rumble.

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

            You think he’s going to come that close to the record?

          • Danny Philippi

            My prediction: Reigns eliminates 10 before Kane, as a surprise entrant, eliminates Reigns.

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

            Jake?

          • Danny Philippi

            Jake Roberts will be better served as an analyst during the pre-show on YouTube, IMO.

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

            I agree.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m going 8.

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

        Yay! Someone’s going to read my results!

  • The Breaker

    Evening everyone. Hopefully we get a solid build towards Royal Rumble tonight since last week was mostly filler in terms of storyline progression.

    And I wasn’t expecting the “First!” posts… you silly kids. :P

    • Nostaljack

      LOL! Yes we are!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hey everyone! I’m here and ready to rock! I do have one little announcement, though. Until further notice, I will not be writing the Smackdown Breakdown. Between becoming a nearly full time single father and my own health issues, I can not put up a quality product like I desire. I will stay here and moderate/poke fun during the watch parties, so don’t fret! I just have to step away from major writing for a bit.

    • Nostaljack

      This *is* the major writing…LOL! As long as you’re here to give Rybread the business with me, it’s all good…LOL!

    • The Breaker

      It’s okay. Family and health come first. Will you have guest writers taking over the reigns in your absence?

      • Nostaljack

        Tony Schiavone will be taking over in his absence.

        • The Breaker

          That would be a must-read article!

          • Nostaljack

            It’d put some butts in the seats!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        As of right now, due to the inconsistency I have put out, no. However, I will still pen some articles on here, such as the Predicts.

        • The Breaker

          I see. Can’t wait until the Breakdown makes its triumphant return!

    • Alex Gallardo

      As others have said, take care of your family and yourself ahead of this. I’m just glad you’ll stay here with us.

  • Danny Philippi

    Off the beaten path, but does the NFL have a rabbits foot? Patriots at Broncos and 49ers at Seahawks to see who competes for the Super Bowl? Damn!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It does seem like a dream set of matchups!

      • Danny Philippi

        I’ll have to go with my preseason pick: Patriots vs. Seahawks.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Based on stats, I say Broncos/Seahawks.

          • Xavier

            As long as New England doesn’t win then I’m good. I got Seattle winning it all

          • David Jr.

            This is the 3rd straight year that the 49ers have got this far, so don’t over look them. And head to head Brady is 10-4 against Manning. So depending on what stat you look at, 49ers vs. Patriots look possible, too.

          • Xavier

            All four of these teams are good enough to win the SB and are pretty evenly matched

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Josh is going over the match sequence for the night and what we can expect from the App tonight.

  • Elto Alexandrov

    Hello everyone!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Elto! Great to see you!

  • Xavier

    What’s good everyone, I waited around for 4 hours for you guys. Bout time ya’ll showed up smh lol

    • Nostaljack

      LOL!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Xavier! How’s your telepathy treating you, Professor?

      • Xavier

        Lol, good. Still trying to figure out how to use my telepathy powers to move my legs

  • Nostaljack

    DEP!

  • Danny Philippi

    Swamp People Rise!

  • Xavier

    This Daniel Wyatt gimmick is/was a bad idea. The fans aren’t buying it and neither am I

  • Danny Philippi

    Daniel “Duke the Dumpster Drosse” Bryan.

  • The Breaker

    I hope they have a really good reason for having Bryan join the Wyatts. But I’m not sure one exists that is worth any of it.

    • Nostaljack

      I am loving this!

      • Nostaljack

        How rude, Eric Bischoff! I KNEW he was in here somewhere!

    • Danny Philippi

      Here is a reason: IT’S BEST FOR BUS-I-NESS!

    • Xavier

      I doubt there was a good reason. Knee jerk decision on WWE creative’s part. One that could comeback to bite them in the ass

      • Nostaljack

        Why do you guys hate this so much?

        • Xavier

          A heel turn or even a teased heel turn for Bryan after spending months building Bryan up as Cena’s equal is is/was the wrong time for this kind of angle with his character. Bryan should be winning the Rumble and fighting for & winning the strap at Mania

          • Nostaljack

            He did the “fight for the strap” thing already. I like that WWE wasn’t afraid to do something different with him. It’s a total left turn and, given what happened prior, it makes sense to me.

          • Xavier

            I feel it’s just too soon for Bryan’s character. Bryan’s character needs a long title reign (6-7 months at least) to see if he can in fact be the guy to take the torch from Cena. They put him over everyone clean on the roster that is a top guy including Cena, why do that just to put the breaks on him in a angle like this when he was more over then anyone in the company. Bryan is the 1st guy since Cena became the guy who’s come along and actually had a legit shot at dethroning him

      • The Breaker

        Agreed. Even if it turns out that he was never really on their side, why do this on the Road to WrestleMania? It’s not going to make him more popular.

        • Xavier

          Exactly

  • Danny Philippi

    If there was football on, people be flipping channels like hot cakes.

    • Danny Philippi

      Unless it is the XFL.

      • Alex Gallardo

        We don’t have to worry about that ever coming back on TV.

  • K!NG

    all Daniel Bryan needs is a trash can n a hat and he will look like duke the dumpster drose

    • Danny Philippi

      Already said. By me. You’re Welcome.

      • Nostaljack

        DAMIEN!

        • Danny Philippi

          DIMENTO!

          • Xavier

            Now that’s old school, not a whole lot of people will get that reference

      • K!NG

        Just seen that lol great minds think a like

  • The Breaker

    And the Usos still get the better of them? What’s the point of making a big deal about Bryan joining them and then making them look weak?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    A look of doubt in Bryan’s eyes… This may be deeper than we think!

    • The Breaker

      Deep or not, none of it makes any sense.

  • Danny Philippi

    Just saw people yawning in the second row. LOL

  • Danny Philippi

    John Cena wrestling for free!? Color me shocked.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, he isn’t Heyman’s client!

      • Danny Philippi

        No he isn’t or he’d be heel. #Hashtag

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I’ll say this, Bryan is still way over with the crowds despite all of this. This, while flash booking, is still working for him.

    • The Breaker

      But it’s not working based on anything WWE has done. In fact, that’s pretty much the story of Bryan’s popularity.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Roberts with Sandow: Damien: I haven’t had a good night sleep since the cash in. Fail. I’ve been thinking about it every single day. Fail. Josh, I have never been more prepared for anything…” clip crashed.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      One has to assume Sandow will be Cena’s opponent.

  • K!NG

    Pretty pumped about wwe network

    • Nostaljack

      ME TOO! I’m all over it!

  • Xavier

    Cena/Sandow was freaking epic

    • David Jr.

      The match could have made Sandow, yet WWE squandered it.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Easily the match of Sandow’s career so far.

  • Danny Philippi

    Better to lose to Cena than go over a seven-foot Indian bafoon.

  • The Breaker

    Why are they bringing this up again? Sandow is a joke now. Distant memories…. great memories….

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because this is WWE! Where matches don’t matter and Logic fails to exist. That’s right, Logic here is like Tony Romo in a clutch situation!

    • Nostaljack

      He’s a very good worker and he deserves far better than the booking has gotten him.

      • The Breaker

        Absolutely. We keep saying how they’ve done so little with Cesaro and Ziggler but Sandow is right up there with them.

      • Xavier

        What I don’t understand is why they had Sandow drop the robes and the degrading snobby I’m smarter/better then you attitude he had.

        • The Breaker

          WWE Creative can’t work with a character that isn’t totally generic.

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

    Not a very good start to the show tonight.

  • packerpf

    Well what did I miss with the wyatts? when I turned on they were walking back..

    • Nostaljack

      Bray and Bryan lost via DQ.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Then Bryan got a Sister Abigail.

      • packerpf

        Ok, figured if I hurried to and back from Walmart wouldn’t miss anything.

      • The Breaker

        And apparently Bryan is still devoted to working under Bray despite the fact that they haven’t won at all so far. I thought he joined them because he was tired of losing.

        • Nostaljack

          He was tired of being beaten down and not being taken seriously. This is all just starting. Give it time.

  • Xavier

    The “LET’S GO CENA, CENA SUCKS” chants never get old. Will there ever be another superstar who draws reactions like that?

    • Nostaljack

      Haven’t had it like that since the Rock.

      • Xavier

        Not even sure The Rock got chants like those as loud. Kind of makes me wonder if it’s even worth turning him when more then likely the fans will just flip flop with the “ADULTS” cheering him and the “WOMAN & CHILDREN” booing him.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I don’t think so. The only way it would work is if he did something ala HH/NWO where he alienated the entire wrestling fanbase all at once.

          • Xavier

            Agreed, I’d love to see it but you bring up a valid point, how do you do it, who do you turn him on to alienate everyone

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Right now, the only person I can think of is Bryan. Otherwise, it’d have to be on the company itself.

          • Xavier

            Agreed. Even more reason why I think this Bryan Wyatt gimmick isn’t a very good idea

  • Danny Philippi

    Cena better pull his jorts up before we know what we can’t see. #SmallManPurse.

    • Nostaljack

      Those jorts need to go…badly.

      • Xavier

        Is he rockin ‘fruit of the loom or something?

        • Nostaljack

          ‘The Loom” doesn’t make jorts…LOL!

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

      Those jorts are horrible, but his homage to Hogan with the red and yellow panties are that much worse!

      • Danny Philippi

        To see Hogan legdrop Cena would be enough to have Hogan’s last four years evaporate away.

        • Xavier

          Could Hogan even get that high off the ground without pulling every muscle in his back

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Makes me wonder if there isn’t something to that…

        • Xavier

          Hmmmmmmmmmmm

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

            That’s what I was thinking.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Match continues. Cole recaps stars that, on the app, superstars will be announcing themselves for the RR match. Del Frito and Batista have already been announced. Both Cole and JBL are pontificating why his career has taken a fall.

  • Nostaljack

    Good match so far!

  • Nostaljack

    “Sign Styles”…LOL!!!

    • Danny Philippi

      Who?

      • Nostaljack

        YES! YES! YES!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        AJ Styles!

        • Nostaljack

          Who?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *Slaps Ed*

          • Nostaljack

            ROFL! You guys are too much! LOL!!!

          • David Jr.

            I think they mean Joey Styles, they probably don’t realize he works for WWE.com.

          • Nostaljack

            OH MY GODDDDD!!!!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            One of the best play-by-play men ever. Joey gave more emotion in his commentary than almost anyone else in this industry.

          • Xavier

            Lance Russell, now there’s a HOF inductee that should of happened years ago

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Amen brother. The single greatest play by play man EVER. He could get a mop over!

          • Xavier

            Yessir

          • Nostaljack

            YES!

          • David Jr.

            If you ask who’s the voice of WWE, some might say Jim Ross, I personally would say Gorilla Monsoon, some may even say Vince McMahon. But there is no doubt about it Joey Styles is the voice of ECW.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Loving the “Sign Styles” sign in the crowd!

  • Xavier

    Another great match between these two

  • The Breaker

    Cena’s like, “What? I actually have to use an Attitude Adjustment to beat Sandow? He shouldn’t be that good!”

    • Xavier

      Lol

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

    Look like they’re attempting to rehabilitate Sandow. Listen to that crowd!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    STF by Sandow!!!

  • The Breaker

    Cena has no idea how to sell being in the STF…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, when you never take your own move…

  • K!NG

    Crossface

  • Xavier

    Really good match there. Cena & Sandow have great chemistry together

    • Nostaljack

      Truth! I would watch more of that. Are they not seeing him work? Give him more!

    • The Breaker

      Yeah, despite the same old “Pick him up and slam him down to get out of the submission and into an AA” finish.

  • packerpf

    Sandow using the crossface makes me think too much of Roode

  • Nostaljack

    Cena Sr. and his bad toupee.

  • Danny Philippi

    Why do I have a feeling Orton is going to get some of Cena’s dad tonight?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That was a beautiful DDT by Sandow in this match! Jake would be proud!

  • Danny Philippi

    Raw, the place where Friday Night’s are rehashed.

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

    Off topic – Jesse, you’re supposed to be paying attention to RAW and not harassing my kids.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      She’s talking to me!

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

        She’s in a good mood, so keep it up. It’s so nice to see her smiling as much as she is.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I’m glad I can be a help!

          • David Jr.

            Ashlyn?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye!

          • David Jr.

            I learned about your friendship during Smackdown.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Josh recaps Orton and Cena match at RR. Wil he be the champ at WrestleMania. Big E. in the RR match. Big E: I’m in? I’m In? What number am I? I know you don’t know but between you and me, which one am I? Josh: Don’t know. Big E; Please, what number am I? Josh: I honestly don’t know – what strategy will you use? Big E: I gotta know the number! Josh: Okay, um…17. Big E: YES! 17! (runs away cheering about it) Roberts: I totally made that up but maybe he’ll be the one to take it and headline WrestleMania. Stay tuned! Back to USA

    P.S.: Some of the paraphrased. It was going by like lightning.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      LOL! If Big E ends up at 17, I’ll laugh my butt off!

      • Nostaljack

        He was riotous. I can type 110 words a minute but the interaction between them was so fast, there was no way to get it all…LOL!!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Now instead of Cole constantly talking about the WWE App he’ll be talking about the WWE Network. I’m just glad that I don’t listen to the commentators anymore.

    • Nostaljack

      I’m cool with them talking about that. I can’t wait for it to start up!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I’m excited for it too, but hearing Cole talking about it all the time is what is annoying.

  • packerpf

    For 9.99 i’d rather get Netflix ha..a lot of wwe’s stuff can be found free.

    • Xavier

      Can’t get WM30 though. Not even close bro. WWE network > Netflix all day everyday

      • packerpf

        I said wwe’s stuff you can find free, meaning elsewhere. I don’t watch the ppv’s live I wait a few days then watch it online.
        Jesse there are always people with it out there.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          True, but you are almost guaranteed WWE will become much more aggressive on pursuing legal action against pirates with the Network coming out. Will WWE eliminate it completely? Nope. But make a public enough case about it, and they will help deter a large amount of it.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      WWE is removing a lot of it on sites like Youtube and Dailymotion through DCMA complaints.

    • Alex Gallardo

      After the Network I can imagine that they’ll be very strict on people who are illegally streaming PPVS and showing WWE content on YouTube.

      • Nostaljack

        They already are to some degree.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, who all is going to get the app at launch?

    • Nostaljack

      ME!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Definitely me, I’m very excited to watch classic ECW and WCW footage.

  • Stephen Cash

    This stuff with Kane and his mask is intriguing…

  • The Breaker

    So is this why they turned Kane corporate? So he could have a story with Brad Maddox?

  • Nostaljack

    WEELLLL!!!

  • Xavier

    Kane’s idea wasn’t very good at all actually lol

  • Danny Philippi

    Brad Maddox come on!

    • Xavier

      He came off a lot better then Kane in that segment

  • Stephen Cash

    Kane screws Bryan and joins the Wyatt’s?

  • Nostaljack

    Um… Big Show just shook his groove thing. I’m done now…LOL!!

  • K!NG

    Hope they have some good wcw content on the wwe network. Be good to watch the cruiserweights

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’d be willing to bet they will have their own Cruiserweight show before long on there!

      • K!NG

        That would be cool. Though I could watch ultimo dragon and dean malenko wrestle all day.

  • Seth

    I know this is a little late but I get the feeling the Usos might do something over the top crazy in the cage.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope for a double Superfly Splash!

      • Seth

        That might be the push to make them, actually.

  • Danny Philippi

    If TNA had a network, it would be run on DSL.

    • David Jr.

      They do have a network but it’s only available in Dixieland.

    • Nostaljack

      It would run on a 56k dial-up modem.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        56k? More like port-to-port mainframe systems!

        • Nostaljack

          CompuServe presents…The TNA Network!

          • David Jr.

            You can only see it in a nickelodeon theatre.

          • Nostaljack

            OUCH!!!

  • Stephen Cash

    Glad Swagger is jobbing and not Cesaro

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Thwagger deserves the loss. Although you are almost promised Cesaro will get hit with a KO Punch.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Flashback to 2011 Royal Rumble. Here comes Booker T at #21. SUCKA!!! Bookah in and getting worked by Mason Ryan (LOL!) Now, getting it from Michael McGillicutty Axel Curtis Hennig. Roberts: The royal rumble match is all about the surprises. My next guest is WWHOF’er Booker T. Getting that phone call sitting on the sofa getting an invite was totally unexpected. I was training for it knowing it could get thad all at any time. getting in that ring was a a rush (references Hawk). I had a chance to go out and win that match and get that number 1 spot and win another world title. There’s only one world title. one of these guys will have a chance to catapult to the next level. Roberts: What is the strategy? Booker: always expect the unexpected. Just go out there tooth and nail just hope you’re in a position to have the stamina to win. Roberts: We’ll reveal more entrants throughout the night on the WWE App.

    • Xavier

      Batista vs Mason Ryan in a mirror mirror on the wall match. BOOK IT!

  • Nostaljack

    Look, the lovable leaf lover, Jack Thwagger! Nice quick job!

  • Danny Philippi

    Swagger getting smoked by Show.

  • Stephen Cash

    I hate the KO punch, I wish show would use the cobra clutch throw thing again

  • Nostaljack

    Great face from Zeb!

  • The Breaker

    Let’s just overlook the fact that Big Show is attacking a war veteran with no provocation.

    • Xavier

      A bigoted war vet

      • The Breaker

        I wasn’t being serious but it is kind of weird how heel actions can get cheered if the guy plays to the crowd while doing it.

        • Xavier

          Lol yeah I know. Agreed.

    • Seth

      JBL: THAT MAN IS A GRANDFATHER! BE QUIET WWE UNIVERSE!

      …JBL has good lines every now and then.

  • Xavier

    LOL @ The wind up

  • Nostaljack

    The crowd isn’t really into this. Wind up fail!

    • Nostaljack

      Stop downing me, Eric!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Zeb takes a KO!!! I love Dutch, and he sells like a champ!

    • Seth

      Many many people could learn from Dutch about many aspects of the business.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He has helped groom some of the best ever over the years. Undertaker, Sting, Kane, SCSA, JBL, and Abyss are some of the people he has helped make over the decades in this business.

        • Seth

          Folks in the business would be smart to approach him and get as much knowledge as you can out him.

          Though don’t ever ask him how your match was especally if you’re young. He’ll tell you what he told Austin when he said he didn’t like anything about the match!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And then have you sit and analyze every match on the card and point out all of the issues and flaws in it so you could learn!

          • Seth

            If Dutch talks…about anything…I wish I could listen. I’d feel like I’d get smarter just by listening.

          • Xavier

            Michaels shared a similar story like that in his book where early in his career he asked Piper how his match was and Piper ended up giving him a ear full

          • Seth

            I think it’s like a way the old timers initiated you sometimes.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It was, but I also know the match in question in Austin’s case. And it was rough to watch. Dutch taught him to always find something to improve on!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, there goes Zeb. That was clearly to write him off TV. He came in about this time last year, so it makes sense.

    • Nostaljack

      I hope not. I dig Zeb!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I am an admitted Dutch Mantell mark, so I will hate to see him go if this is the case. But hopefully WWE keeps him for creative or to teach these kids about this business.

    • Stephen Cash

      Why is he leaving?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’m guessing either to go backstage or his contract is up. Like I said, he came into WWE around this time last year, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it is up.

  • Danny Philippi

    Calling AARP to spot old man abuse. LOL

  • Xavier

    This will be a fun 6 man tag match. Maybe Ultimate Warrior will show up at the end as another surprise

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

      Please, no!

      • Xavier

        Booooooooooo Kendra lol

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

          Sorry, I’ve never been a fan.

          • Xavier

            Still though, no denying that he was big time. Only man to beat Hogan clean during his WWE run at the top and even surpassed Hogan in popularity for a brief time. He belongs in the HOF. He is a major a-hole no argument there but a lot of resentment towards him steams from the fact that he had the balls to give Vince the finger and tell him to the F off, never destroyed his body like most and never needed the business once he decided to finally walk away, he’s happily married and he has his own successful business. A lot of the old timers resent that fact and the fact that he got to the top without playing politics backstage

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Im late. Power outage. Came back to Show grabbing Zeb’s behind lol.
    Wyatt match happen yet?

    • Nostaljack

      Yes. Ended in DQ

      • Brandon Ceielo

        You tricked me! Lol.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Former WWE champ, The Miz is in the Rumble. Miz: Two years ago, people would have gambled and said I’d win. Now, they don’t know whether to cheer or boo. I don’t know even who I am anymore. It only takes one opportunity to get back to where I was and win. There is only one thing to do…and that’s win. Everyone’s gonna sit there and tell you there gonna be the ones. Look into my eyes! I’m going to win the RR match and ton on to headline wrestle mania.

    I would love to see Reigns break off and then a feud between Rollins and Ambrose for the US title

    • Xavier

      I wanna see Reigns & Batista at some point

  • Danny Philippi

    Seth Rollins looks a little like Jeff Hardy with the compression shirt.

    • Hayden Tyler

      Not really doesn’t have the crazy eyes or hair

      • Nostaljack

        Doesn’t have crazy hair? Are you missing the blonde assault and battery he did to his hair?

        • Hayden Tyler

          Jeff had more than just blonde and various lengths and Jesse glad to see you to man ive been in town for a few weeks.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            You should have come by! Things are different and a bit more interesting now.

          • Hayden Tyler

            can i come over a watch the rest of Raw

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Not tonight, as I have the kids, but are you going to still be here next Monday?

          • Hayden Tyler

            im leaving sunday to go back for spring semester

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Dang man! Well, text me and we can hang tomorrow some.

          • Hayden Tyler

            what time???

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Around noon sounds good for me.

          • Hayden Tyler

            sounds good to me

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Hayden! Good to see you man!

  • Xavier

    Nice reaction for Reigns

  • Brandon Ceielo

    The cheers for Reigns!

  • Danny Philippi

    Cheers for Reigns. Mostly by 15-year old girls wearing training bras.

  • Nostaljack

    Roman Reigns is a STAHHHH!!

  • K!NG

    Roman Reigns all!

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

    What do you think Batista v Reigns, with Batista passing a torch a possibility.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’d want to see it, simply to see Batista put over a young guy.

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

        Battle of the spears, it could definitely play

    • The Breaker

      That could be an interesting match. I can’t really see Batista putting over a young guy though.

    • Xavier

      I was saying the same thing earlier, I think that would be a fun feud. Some similarities in the way they both rose to the top. They could easily play off of that fact as well

  • Seth

    Noth’n like having fun in a wrestl’n match. Know its early but it just feels like all six guys are just having fun out there.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Catchy theme music. Match continues. Much talk about network. Match progress is very back and forth.

  • Nostaljack

    Flash Funk is trending! LOL!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Flash Funk! There’s a dated reference!

    • Nostaljack

      2 Cold Scorpio was just amazing. Very underrated.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Aye, and misused in all 3 major promotions!

    • David Jr.

      Oh Flash you are so Funky.

  • Danny Philippi

    Jerry, shut up. Was better last week.

  • K!NG

    Nice dropkick

  • Stephen Cash

    That was awesome!!!!!

  • Danny Philippi

    A “You Can’t Wrestle” chants for Rollins. Ouch!

    • Xavier

      NIck K won’t be happy about that lol

    • Stephen Cash

      Uneducated fans annoy me. He’s a great wrestler

    • Brandon Ceielo

      That’s what I thought. Argh. I like Rollins.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Anyone able to make out the fan cheer just now?

  • Danny Philippi

    “CM PUNK” chants now.

  • Stephen Cash

    How can Rollins not wrestle? I don’t understand that chant…

    • Xavier

      It’s a dumb chant when directed at anyone who’s in the WWE pretty much

  • Hayden Tyler

    that was messed up

  • Seth

    and heel turn.

  • Xavier

    Wow, now that’s a swerve

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

    OHHHHH! I did not see that coming!

  • Hayden Tyler

    Whats going on?

  • The Breaker

    NAO are in Triple H’s back pocket!

    • Xavier

      Now that’s a lot more interesting then the lame Bryan/Wyatt angle

  • Danny Philippi

    HHH ordered the hit.

  • Nostaljack

    Whoa!

  • Stephen Cash

    This is clearly an authority move

    • Xavier

      And this swerve has my attention

  • David Jr.

    I kinda called this on Smackdown, check the Smackdown Open Thread.

  • Nostaljack

    Jet. Pack.

  • Stephen Cash

    That spear sucked… Dang it!!! I love his spear

  • Seth

    I dig it. Makes sense considering the ties.

  • Xavier

    Now this is a swerve that has my attention. It’s already 10x better then Bryan joining the Wyatts

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Finally some logic!!!

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

      Funny how something logical was so unexpected,

      • David Jr.

        I kind of suspected it.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, the is the WWE, where logic rarely exists! That’s right, logic here is like the lands of Shegorath!

  • Brandon Ceielo

    I’m guessing this is best for business. Now I want to see NAO get their bums kicked.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Or, better yet, use NAO to facilitate the breakup of The Brotherhood and give them on last run as Tag Champs!

      • Brandon Ceielo

        Now that would be awesome. WM would be great for that. Show it where everyone is watching.

      • Xavier

        As much as I love NAO I don’t think it’s warranted. Stay on the sidelines and let the young guys have their time. The Usos are more deserving

  • The Breaker

    I’m pretty surprised that WWE remembered their own continuity and aligned the NAO with Triple H.

  • Nostaljack

    DEP!

  • Xavier

    Speaking of lame……..

    • Nostaljack

      Hater!

      • Xavier

        Lol, I’m sorry bro but this angle has been terrible so far IMHO. NAO walking out on Punk is already 10x more intriguing and it just happened minutes ago

        • Nostaljack

          For the record, I didn’t “neg” you. That was Eric again.

          • Xavier

            Lol it’s all good

  • Nostaljack

    Bray is so good.

  • Seth

    I don’t like the angle, but Bray is so good at talking…it’s scary.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He makes you truly scared to be around him… It’s like he truly is the character, not just playing one.

      • Seth

        It’s just an extension of his personality.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Woods and R-Truth in the RR. Roberts: Only one can win, you’re entering your first…does your strategy involved R. Woods: We’re gonna work together and, when it comes down to it, R will step aside gladly and allow me to headline Wrestlemania. R-truth: No, you were gonna step across and step across and I’ve me the opportunity to headline Wrestlemania. Woods: weren’t you gonna pass the torch to the young guy?….back to U.S.A.

  • Danny Philippi

    Commercial round up: Suits USA Network show, Jackson Hewitt, Burger King, Beats Headphones, Esurance, Southern New Hampshire Univeristy, Dominos, and Jackson Hewitt (again).

  • Xavier

    It’s Naomi time :-)

  • Xavier

    If I had a genie I’d use all 3 wishes on Naomi & AJ, what about you guys?

    • Seth

      I wouldn’t be greedy. Just give me AJ and I’d be happy. :P

      • Xavier

        I”m a greedy S.O.B lol

        • Seth

          Hah. No worries. But hey, from a work standpoint and mannerisims… AJ’s great. Lol

    • Steve pritchard

      I would throw tamina I there too, what the hell!

      • Xavier

        I actually think Tamina is really attractive, love her exotic look

        • Steve pritchard

          That’s what I was saying. I was saying what the hell. Because I was wondering why you didn’t include her.

        • Steve pritchard

          In all honesty ! I wouldn’t kick any of them out of the bed , unless they wanted to do it on the floor! Lol

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Emma! Is she being brought in?

  • Danny Philippi

    Emma making her debut. Hope she gets called up soon.

  • The Breaker

    I can’t wait for the EMMALUTION to hit RAW!

    • Danny Philippi

      Almost has the Mickie James debut angle.

      • The Breaker

        You mean you’re just as excited as you were for that?

  • Brandon Ceielo

    A permanent job in WWE, AJ and good creative in WWE.
    Edit: was meant to be a reply to Xavier.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Walked back in, and I see one of the ugliest dropkicks ever by Cameron…

    • Hayden Tyler

      she didnt even touch her with it

  • Nostaljack

    I love AJ!!!

  • Stephen Cash

    Naomi looked good

  • Brandon Ceielo

    There’s no DQ in a cage!

  • Xavier

    I wonder who it will be.

    • David Jr.

      THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Xavier

        I’m cool with that

        • David Jr.

          I was right.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    First inductee! Who do you hope it is?

    • Stephen Cash

      Owen Hart

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’d love that, but it is highly unlikely thanks to Martha.

    • Hayden Tyler

      Jake Roberts

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That’s the most likely choice. Personally, I want Macho Man in!

  • Danny Philippi

    Hall of Fame season. GREAT!

  • Hayden Tyler

    I bet the first inductee is jake the Snake Roberts.

  • Seth

    Someone get a really really long drum roll for this.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’m really looking forward to seeing who the first inductee is for the HOF.

  • Guest

    radadadadadadadadadadadadaaddaddadadadadadadad…………………………………..

  • Stephen Cash

    Jake the Snake or DX… Although DX is doubtful with the recent heel turn

    • Xavier

      Roberts hopefully. Triple H should go in on his own 1st

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think it would be an outrage if Paul Bearer wasn’t the first inductee.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Nice to see you Mike, and I agree, he was a big part in helping Undertaker get big.

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

      I agree that he should be. My heart is still heavy.

      • David F.

        Owen Hart also deserves to be in Hof this year. Enough is Enough and its time for Owen to be inducted dammit

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I forgot all about the fact he needs an induction! Paul Bearer for HOF!!!

    • Nostaljack

      Hey, Mike! I’ve been keeping your App chair warm. Want it back?

    • Mike McCarthy

      I’m not going to be here long, just swung by to share the HOF hype, working on a project for school.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        School work come first! WAPSH!!! *Whips Mike* GET TO WORK!!!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I hope you can get that done, those projects can sometimes be pretty hard.

        • Mike McCarthy

          FYI, Small Animal Care, is one of the hardest classes I’ve ever taken (even though it sounds extremely easy…..which is why I took it)

  • Danny Philippi

    HOF update: first inductee in 2014 class to be announced.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Flashback to 2012 RR. Kofi doing acrobatics to keep from being eliminated. Kofi with Josh: What do you have planned. Kofi: A lot of people have been asking me that. I’ve provided some great moments. But to me the ultimate trick and stunt would be me standing in the middle of the ring after having thorn them all out of the ring to be known as the winner. That would be the ultimate moment. Back TO USA

  • Xavier

    Orton/Kofi oh joy. Gonna have to read thru annoying comments about how Orton “buried” Kofi and has been holding him down for the past 4 years smh

    • Mike McCarthy

      Well it’s no secret that Orton did bury Kofi, the annoying part is that it was 4 years ago and people still hate Orton for it

      • Xavier

        Exactly, Kofi has had more then enough time to climb the ladder, even without Orton the oicture in 09 Kofi’s push would not have lasted

        • Mike McCarthy

          Just because somebody gets cheered doesn’t mean they should be pushed, (Ryback, Evan Bourne)

          • Xavier

            Zack Ryder

    • The Breaker

      Kofi couldn’t have worked at the top in this gimmick anyway.

    • Stephen Cash

      Yep, because we know that on the top of Ortons daily to do list is to put Kofi down to management

      • Xavier

        Lol exactly, but according to most it’s still Orton’s fault that Kofi isn’t a main eventer

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Orton didn’t help at that time, but Kofi got a rep for being dangerous that held him down.

          • Xavier

            Kofi is pretty dangerous from what I’ve heard. Orton isn’t the only one to complain about that

          • Jesse Sherwood

            There were two med staff guys that left that openly talked about Kofi being the “Cringe worthy” worker anytime he competed.

          • Seth

            Kicks caused potatos and you’d get roughed up after a match with him.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Kofi is more boring than a face Randy Orton cutting a promo for 20 minutes.

  • The Breaker

    Aaaaand we’re back to Randy whining about getting help….

  • Seth

    I want more Corporate Kane.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’d be happy with him as a permanent GM!

      • Hayden Tyler

        i would be glad to see him be permanent

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WARRIOR!!!

  • Nostaljack

    WARRIOR!

  • Xavier

    From Parts Unkown!!!!!!!!!!!1 Yo Kendra, where you at?

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

    HOLY SH…oot

  • Alex Gallardo

    YES! IT’S WARRIOR!

  • Danny Philippi

    Greatest Wrestler from Parts Unknown in Wrestling History.

  • The Breaker

    What kind of speech is he going to give?

    • Nostaljack

      We won’t be able to comprehend it.

      • The Breaker

        Like Backlund?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Worse. Have you ever heard his spoken word poetry?

          • The Breaker

            Yeah. I meant is he going to try working in character like Backlund?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Probably something that we can’t understand.

    • Seth

      Just give him a live mic.

    • Xavier

      LOL That’ll be epic

  • Xavier

    Long overdue. Hate him or love him he belongs here and deserves to be here.

    • David Jr.

      Hey , I called it.

      • Xavier

        You sure did buddy.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Ultimate Warrior is one of the few people that I truly am upset I wasn’t alive when he was in his prime.

    • Alex Gallardo

      That’s why I’m happy about the WWE Network and the access that we have now to see him.

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

    I will stay professional, but I have no use for for Warrior and think this is a travesty!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Why?

    • Stephen Cash

      How? Even if you don’t like him you still have to respect what he did for this industry… And there are way less deserving people in there already…

    • Xavier

      Strongly disagree

    • Nostaljack

      Yeah, why?

    • Xavier

      I wonder who will induct Warrior.Most of his peers hate him, he rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

      • Nostaljack

        Eric Bischoff

        • Xavier

          Or Triple H lol jk

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’d hope Sting, if he isn’t in TNA by then, as they broke into the business together.

          • Xavier

            That would be a good one

    • The Breaker

      I’m not a fan of his, to say the least, but I can understand why he’s going in.

    • Mike McCarthy

      After the edgy stuff they did leading to WrestleMania, this honor clearly belonged to Paul Bearer. Warrior has been gone for years, he could’ve waited one more.

      • Xavier

        No way, Warrior should of never had to wait to begin with. No disrespect to Paul (god rest his soul) but Warrior as the headliner is the right call

        • Mike McCarthy

          The mistake to make Warrior wait had already been made, correcting one mistake created another. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

          • Xavier

            Paul can still go in but he shouldn’t headline over Warrior. Warrior at his peak was 100x more over then Paul Bearer as manager

          • Mike McCarthy

            I can’t tell a lie, when I originally thought of him in the HOF months ago I thought of him being co-headliner similar to what Foley did with Sammartino.

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

      Just goes to show you how far steroids, a running clothes line and gorilla press will get you. I understand the sentiment but I think he belongs, Although, I still have not forgiven Savage losing his retirement match to him.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    My heart skips a beat every single time Lilian Garcia is in the ring.

    • Xavier

      She’s beautiful and classy. Can’t beat that combo.

      • Brandon Ceielo

        Yeah. Her voice is awesome too. Was sad she was gone those few years.

        • Alex Gallardo

          But it’s good that she’s back now.

  • Xavier

    Not a huge turnout for the RAW watch tonight I notice

    • Seth

      I was late today. Been under the weather.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I personally think that it’s better that way, I don’t like having to click on new comments all the time.

  • Danny Philippi

    My older brother was 5 years old when he got an Ultimate Warrior Brawling Buddy. He was a wrestling fan before the Attitude Era when he switched to WCW. He watched 1998 Halloween Havoc and after the event, he tossed the Brawling Buddy across his room in disgust. He picked it up and still have to this day in my closet.

    • David Jr.

      My brother still has his Ultimate Warrior Brawling Buddy.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Now I’ll admit that I was able to tolerate their match at HH 1998 (mostly because they’re my two favorite wrestlers of all time) but that match is hard for anyone to stomach.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Alright everybody, I’ve gotta get back to my 3D model of the digestive system of a gosh darn cat. Enjoy RAW!!!!!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Good luck and I hope you do good.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Mike, please edit your comment when you get back. GD is not acceptable.

      • Mike McCarthy

        My fault, fixed it. Have a good one Jesse.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          You too Mike.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Speaking of that, are we allowed to swear on here at all?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Limited cussing is ok. No F bombs or religious slurs. And no more than one or two.

          • Alex Gallardo

            That seems fair to me. I’ve only been on sites that have no swearing allowed so I was curious, sometimes people can go overboard when they get the freedom to use bad language.

          • Seth

            In essence…never do the DX promo at the USA network. Ever. It was funny when they did it, but it isn’t good for the site!

  • Nostaljack

    I thought Mike was going to take this back from me so I didn’t type as it was happening. In short, Goldust and Cody Rhodes are in. They bantered back and forth about who would toss who over the rope.

    • Seth

      Fun fact: Cody has eliminated Goldust two times already.

      • Nostaljack

        That was mentioned. LOL! They made comedy out of it.

        • Seth

          Imagine the heat there’d be when the brothers would tease or eliminate one another again?

  • Seth

    Random thought: I liked it better when they had Royal Rumble qualifying matches. I know it’s a little thing and more often than not the match results were obvious but hey…

  • Xavier

    TO clarify from earlier, the fans where chanting NEW AGE OUTLAWS and not YOU CAN’T WRESTLE at Rollins

    • Stephen Cash

      Good

  • Danny Philippi

    Every time I see Kofi Kingston, I whimper. He is such a talent and such a classy guy (rumored). To be a punching bag for the big stars, he must hate to digest humble pie.

    • Xavier

      He’s reckless in the ring though and that’s coming from various wrestles. I agree though, he comes off like a really nice dude in real life and on TV.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Omg that superplex was real high! That was scary!

    • Seth

      Higher than Swagger after some pot.

  • Danny Philippi

    Randy Orton complaining to The Authority 500000000x > Magnus needing half the TNA roster to be TNA Undisputed Champion.

  • K!NG

    Good chemistry between orton and kofi

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Match continues. Kendra’s favorite, Warrior, is trending.

    • David Jr.

      Full of the juice that carries the spaceship as far as it wants to go … because when the moon is blood red … the heavens have opened up from above and the Warriors have spoken. You’ve got the power to make the skies rumble and the earth shake. In the sheets of the wind, then I will survive.

      • Nostaljack

        YES!!

  • Xavier

    Solid match up here

    • Nostaljack

      Yeah! Good story. Maybe Orton’s over himself where Kingston is concerned?

      • Xavier

        Orton has been over that for years now. I think it’s most within the IWC that can’t let that go

        • Nostaljack

          Yeah, kinda like the fact that they can’t get over how good Orton has gotten – both in the ring and on the mic.

          • Xavier

            Exactly. Orton has always been super talented. The best heel of the past decade by far

          • Nostaljack

            …and now, he has the mic to back it all up.

          • Xavier

            He was always solid on the mic. When was he never not good?

          • Nostaljack

            He could be robotic. That was the criticism and I got it.

          • Seth

            and robotic works if you’re a heel.

          • Nostaljack

            He’s not robotic anymore. He’s got edge and he’s passionate!

          • Xavier

            It’s better then listening to Ambrose try to sound like Joker

          • Seth

            Randy’s just better off being a heel anyway. Especially as a character.

  • Danny Philippi

    Orton sure knows how to quite a crowd during his matches. San Francisco should sign him for this week.

    • Stephen Cash

      Orton has been amazing lately…

  • Danny Philippi

    Ultimate Warrior surely inspired Kofi to go techno with his tights.

  • Seth

    Wait-WHAT!?

  • Danny Philippi

    UPSET OF THE DECADE!!!!!

  • Nostaljack

    OMGGGGGGGGG

  • Xavier

    Wow. Nice little surprise. Good match

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WHOA!!! KOFI WINS KOFI WINS!!!

  • Stephen Cash

    Stupid booking

    • Nostaljack

      Awfully quick trigger pulling, no?

    • Danny Philippi

      Magnus having half the TNA roster help him win the TNA Undisputed Championship 5000000000x > Orton losing clean before a PPV.

      • Nostaljack

        Who’s Magnus?

        • Danny Philippi

          One half of British Invasion.

          • Nostaljack

            What’s the British Invasion?

          • Danny Philippi

            Magnus and Doug Williams.

  • Nostaljack

    Are they finally gonna do something with him?

    • Xavier

      Doubt it. This is more about Orton losing focus then Kofi winning

      • Nostaljack

        It seems that way. Dag!

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Holy crap!! Kofi got it!! Autocorrect made Kofi be Logo.

    • Brandon Ceielo

      Was about to say that I hate that RKO sets up his own rope assisted DDT.

  • K!NG

    Wow congrats kofi!

  • Xavier

    Someone called an attack on Cena Sr earlier I believe

    • Seth

      Second time I think Orton beat the hell out of Cena Sr.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Last time was a punt!

    • Danny Philippi

      It was me Xavier. It was me all along Xavier. I bit hook line and sinker.

      • Xavier

        Lol

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Can I get those lotto numbers now?

        • Danny Philippi

          2, 9, 13, 19, 25, 37 with the Magic Ball 18.

    Cena’s father again?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep!

  • Stephen Cash

    I’m betting nothing comes for Kofi… This was more to bring out crazy Orton

  • Danny Philippi

    Called it. Check from earlier tonight.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    The girls scream sounded weak.

  • Seth

    If this was a twitter thing, I’d so do #UMadOrton right now…oh wait I just did anyway…dammit.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      #ElderAbuseOnRaw

      • Seth

        #GreyHairHate

  • Stephen Cash

    If this loss was to make Orton go crazy than awesome, but if it wasn’t it doesn’t make sense to put Kofi over and only makes Orton look weak, then Orton beats Cena and Cena looks weak…

    • Nostaljack

      I didn’t “neg” you but that’s not really the point. It was hardly a clean, strong win. It appears it was only done to sell Orton’s crazy.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Cena with dad and paramedics. Stretcher job. He’s asking the crowd what happened. Very well done all around. They appear to be staying with this throughout the break. Cena Sr. is wheeled out on stretcher. Back to USA.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we come back to Cena Sr. being stretchered out of the arena. At least they are trying to be logical.

  • Xavier

    I wonder if Cena Sr has any type of wrestling experience because he takes these bumps like a champ

    • Nostaljack

      He runs an indie in Boston, no?

      • Xavier

        I thought I heard something along those lines before but I’m not sure either

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Kendra has interviewed him I believe!

          • Xavier

            Nice

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Aye, he does.

  • Nostaljack

    They really need to fix that commentators desk. It looks horribly beat up.

  • Seth

    The Brotherhood are over.

  • Nostaljack

    No wig for Goldie?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I love this remixed theme!

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

    I’ve seen Cena Sr. take some solid bumps as a heel manager since the first time I met him, about three years ago – from both young wrestlers, and Tony Atlas. He’s a great heel manager, and takes bumps while doing it, even at his age.

    • Xavier

      Me, Nostaljack & Jesse were just talking about that very thing

  • Nostaljack

    Rybotch!

  • Danny Philippi

    Here’s #Twitter’sFavoriteHeel.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here comes the crazy Tweet and Delete attention starved subhuman excuse for a waste of space!

  • Nostaljack

    Rybread is really in love with himself…and here I thought it was just a summer fling.

    • Seth

      A summer fling involves you sobering up or waking up and realizing you made a mistake.

  • Seth

    Ryback looked like he was making sure he was blocking Curtis Axel from the camera. That’s not exactly heel…that’s *insert vulgar rant here*

  • Cubed56

    Just got caught up on raw, is it just me or did I just see a segment with Orton that I’m pretty sure I saw 6 years ago already?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye sir!!!

      • Cubed56

        thought so, nice to see fresh new stuff in the wwe huh?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          At least they kept it logical.

          • Cubed56

            that is true

          • David F.

            Edge watching at home, “hey I heeled on Cena’s dad first! get your own material!” lol

          • Seth

            It was done a-lot differently than the last time they executed it.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And WWE is acknowledging the Twitter crap… SMH…

  • Danny Philippi

    Ryback was just channeling his inner Ultimate Warrior this past weekend.

  • Xavier

    As long as fans chant stuff like “Goldberg” at Ryback or bother reacting to him Vince will keep him on TV. Food for thought for the people who want Ryback gone

    • Cubed56

      Peyton Manning!!! lol j/k bro, your chargers made it further then my packers so I cant really talk crap.

      • Xavier

        Damn you Cubed56 lol.

        • Cubed56

          hey if it makes you feel better, I was cheering for SD yesterday, and I was actually hoping for a Packer/Charger Superbowl so we could talk trash and make a little wager.

          • Xavier

            Now that would of been a lot of fun

          • Cubed56

            For sure, theres always next year.

          • Xavier

            True. Rogers will be completely healthy and I love San Diego’s young nucleus of talent (Keenan Allen, Woodhead, Mathews & Weddle)

          • Cubed56

            Allen is a beast! both teams had a rash of injuries this year, id like to see what both teams could do if they could stay relatively healthy for an entire year

      • Danny Philippi

        Next week’s Raw should be from OMAHA OMAHA OMAHA!

        • Cubed56

          im sorry bro, im not following

  • K!NG

    Lol love how they mention his twitter

  • Danny Philippi

    Great way to describe Ryback is that … wait, give me a hour.

  • Nostaljack

    JBL Breaking kayfabe!

  • Scottyo614

    Twitter gets people talking and some people keep buying in to it. It’s time Richard quit even trying to analyze Rybacks tweets or give him attention.. Even xpac heat is still heat

    • Xavier

      Agreed.

  • Seth

    I approve of the champions winning a non title match there.

  • Danny Philippi

    Piss break. Be back in a flash.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Flashback to 06 RR. Rey and Triple H going back and forth. Triple H eliminated. Mysterio wins by eliminating Orton.

  • Xavier

    I get the feeling we’re getting Batista/Lesnar at Mania for the title

    • David Jr.

      Batista vs. Ultimate Warrior. No Match, just a rope Shaking contest.

      • Xavier

        Lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That hashtag kind of gives me that vibe as well.

      • Xavier

        What hashtag, did I miss something

        • Jesse Sherwood

          #StillHungry

          • Xavier

            Oh

    • Cubed56

      agreed, not sure how I feel about it yet though

    • The Breaker

      I hope your feeling is wrong.

  • Seth

    I know Batista’s going to return as a babyface but I admit…heel Batista when he turned on Mysterio(the guy entering now) was a great run for him. How’s that for a segway?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Static screen! Looks like WWE had a feed issue!

    • Nostaljack

      Not here. Comcast got it all.

  • Stephen Cash

    Have we seen this match before?

    • Seth

      About 1000 times.

    • Xavier

      Not sure, but it does feel awfully familiar

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It was ADR’s first feud in WWE.

      • Xavier

        I thought Christian was actually, maybe that was his second feud

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Christian was the second one. ADR/Rey was first, and Rey got injured in the middle of it.

  • Cubed56

    is there something going on tonight im unaware of, why are the number of comments so low?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’s just a slow night. We have a few of the regulars out sick and I’m a bit quieter than normal.

      • Cubed56

        gotcha

    • Xavier

      I asked the same thing earlier

  • Seth

    Uh-oh, the sound cut out for a couple seconds. I think someone said a no-no word!

    • Nostaljack

      Yep.

  • Cubed56

    I also wanted to ask, im sorry cause im sure it was discussed already, but does anyone have the feeling that the NAO walking out on CM Punk has HHH’s hands all over it?

    • Xavier

      Yeah, we talked about that earlier. I’m very intrigued by that as well

      • Cubed56

        same here

      • Cubed56

        perhaps a crazy idea here. A mega fight for control of the WWE at WM, Team DX (HHH, HBK, Road Dogg, and BA Billy Gunn) vs Vince’s team of Punk, Bryan (provided he breaks away from the wyatts by then), and two others.

        • Xavier

          Where at Extreme Rules?

          • Cubed56

            ???? no at WM XXX

          • Xavier

            I hope not, I’d rather Mania be saved for the young guns

          • Cubed56

            I agree, but if part timers are gonna be utilized id rather they all be in one match with something very important on the line, rather then then them taking up 3-4 spots on the card.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It was, and the general consensus was it is.

      • Cubed56

        very intriguing

    • David Jr.

      I do. I said it when they teamed on Smackdown.

  • Scottyo614

    Now they bring up Batista and Del Rio on twitter in passing. Who knew this social network would allow kayfabe to be kept alive so well. Feuds and getting over are going to a whole new level

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anyone else want to see ADR vs. Batista at EC?

  • Stephen Cash

    I really feel like Lesnar is going to win the title in the chamber, but I don’t want Lesnar as champion…. Part-timers shouldn’t hold titles.

  • Xavier

    Del Rio is going to become Batista food next week

    • Nostaljack

      They called him Animal Chow on the App.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Ouch… That can’t be good for his position…

  • Nostaljack

    Alberto Del Midcard’s booking has been really off lately. What do they want to do with him exactly?

    • Stephen Cash

      He’s feuding with Batista when he returns

    • Seth

      I think now that he’s off of the concussion, they’re feeding him to Batista.

    • Xavier

      He won tonight so they could feed him to Batista, mini tune up feud for Batista

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Despite the hate, especially from my friends, I always liked ADR. I like most of his matches and the one with Christian last year at Payback(?) was great.

  • Ryan

    please tell me they have something better for Batista than a feud with ADR

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sorry, but that looks like where this is going.

    • Xavier

      Mini tune up feud. Probably won’t last past the Rumble

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff. Bad news Barrett on. His sign falls off while he’s banging the gavel. LOL!! The WWE app is one of the most inventive and successful apps available. But i’m afraid I’ve got some bad news. Despite the fact that the wee app contains such incredible content as this, that doesn’t suddenly mean you can give up al other activities. Let’s take exercise. If you give up exercise, you’ll suddenly looking like the livestock we have posting as an audience this evening. The amazing thing is this is the first night in 2014 that this lot has left their couches. Why did they do that? They did it because they wanted to see Bad News Barrett. Thank you very much. Hits gavel repeatedly. Back to USA.

    • The Breaker

      It’s sad that they can’t seem to think of anything better for Bad News Barrett to say to get heat other than “The audience is fat”.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I like the look of the Network app. It looks like they are emulating Hulu and Netflix quite closely. I’ll probably burn through 1/5th of the material on there in the first month!

    • The Breaker

      And their update schedule will be a lot quicker than Netflix!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, the network launches after Raw in 6 weeks.

  • Stephen Cash

    Are we ever going to find out who the devil is… Or was that dropped?

    • Nostaljack

      Seems to have been dropped.

    • The Breaker

      They could circle back to it with this Bryan angle but I doubt anything will happen.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It was quietly swept under the rug.

    • Xavier

      Dropped like the anonymous GM thing

  • Cubed56

    Anyone else see Orton and Punk teaming against the Authority eventually?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Punk’s in the Rumble!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Tonight, we learned that Big E, The Brotherhood, and Punk are all in the rumble match!

  • Nostaljack

    DEP!

  • Danny Philippi

    It sure takes a lot of time setting up a cage. ADR/Mysterio was like a half hour ago.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Listen to the crowd clap the Wyatt’s theme!

  • Cubed56

    the fans are clapping to the Wyatt theme, unreal how much DB can change the way the fans react to them in 2 weeks

  • David Jr.

    I always thought Cage Matches should be like this. Finishing a match by walking out the door is dumb.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed. I miss the days that climbing out was the only way to win.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Fandango and Summer Ray. Josh: Will you punch your ticket at Wrestlemania. Fan: I’m jazzed up. It’s about women, good tans. What better way to follow my debut wrestling victory against Jericho than to follow up with a match to be come the champion. Can you think of anything better than that. No , I don’t think so. Now excuse us. Back to USA.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m guessing that means Dingle is in the Rumble as well?

      • Nostaljack

        Yes, Mr. Dango is in.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    One of my favorite entrances got commercial breaked. Hope that isn’t so for the Usos.

  • Danny Philippi

    I find the Raw’s before the last Raw before a PPV in the past six months have been total throw-aways.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BAM! The Brotherhood vs. NAO!

    • Danny Philippi

      One last run for the bad guys.

      • Xavier

        Hope not, they had their time. Usos deserve a title reign

        • Brandon Ceielo

          Fatal Four Way Tag Team Match. Brotherhood vs NAO vs Usos vs PTP.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Enough with the freakin’ recaps, WWE! Match time wasted every week.

  • Danny Philippi

    I did not know Lesnar was in the crowd tonight.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Lol!

    • The Breaker

      No, those are just sixteen year old girls. It just sounds deceivingly similar.

      • Nostaljack

        Yep. One is just as nancy as the other.

        • The Breaker

          Good thing he has Heyman. His voice is awesome and menacing whenever he says Brock’s name.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Is it bad I find Kane in a suit scarier than he ever was in his mask and gear?

    • The Breaker

      Nope. I feel the same way!

    • Seth

      A man with authority is scarier than a man that’s physically strong. A man that’s both? Save me mommy!

  • savokes

    Bray’s going to make Bryan help him out and then leave him to get beatdown by the Usos…then come back in and given Bryan the Sister Abigail

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wow… those head shots on Bryan on the top of the cage were REALLY weak looking.

  • David Jr.

    Someone asked this during Impact. I think it was Jesse. But I don’t see any giant holes in the cages right now. I don’t see any at all, am I missing them?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      No, and it was me. WWE has very small ones, just big enough for the lens to go through.

  • Danny Philippi

    Underwhelming cage match so far. Best tag team cage match IMO was 2000 Raw Edge and Christian vs. the Hardy Boyz.

  • Cubed56

    the crowd seems perplexed, they are unsure who to cheer for, the usos are the faces, yet DB is on the opposing team

    • Xavier

      This whole Bryan/Wyatts angle is wack if you ask me

      • Cubed56

        I agree its intriguing in a way, yet I don’t really see what good comes out it, either you kill the momentum of the hottest guy you’ve had in years, or you risk burying the wyatts before they really get rolling

        • Xavier

          Exactly, Bryan should be the one to win the rumble and the one to win the strap at Mania.

          • Cubed56

            that’s what I was hoping would happen

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Bryan is looking to become one of those guys WWE will have an impossible task to get the fans against him.

      • Xavier

        It won’t work. This angle was thrown together last minute and it’s not the right time to do this with Bryan’s character.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Not at all, but I can see how it is benefiting both parties. When Bryan breaks free, the fans will go hot for it. And it gets some true heat on Bray.

          • The Breaker

            But they were extremely hot for Bryan before. It accomplishes nothing, except maybe getting heat on Bray. I think he could make it work without Bryan though.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He could, but I’m betting he wasn’t gaining heat as fast as TPTB wanted. In fact, Bray was getting cheers!

          • Cubed56

            I thought Bray was doing alright garnering heat before DB joined them

          • Xavier

            I don’t really see how it benefits anyone honestly

      • Cubed56

        seems to be heading that way

    • The Breaker

      Exactly. It’s the risk you take when turning the most over guy heel. They could’ve had gold with Bryan but they went a different way. Hopefully it pays off in the end, but I’m not at all optimistic.

      • Cubed56

        same here

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Match continues. “Daniel Bryan” chants. Back to USA.

  • savokes

    I am really hoping for a sick move from the top of the cage, ala Jeff Hardy…but we probably won’t get that

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I have a feeling Bryan will deliver it and miss, setting up an Uso win.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This is awesome chants!

  • Seth

    Crowd’s picking up.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    This is awesome chants. Agreed so far.

    • Brandon Ceielo

      Usos get the win!! Yes! I love Bryan, but the Usos are the tag team.

  • The Breaker

    So I guess this is supposed to set up discord within the Family?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Usos get a win, and I’m betting we see another Bryan beatdown now!

  • savokes

    Aaaaaaaaand here comes another SA

  • Danny Philippi

    SnoreSnoreSnoreSnoreSnoreSnoreSnoreSnoreSnore

  • Cubed56

    see what is this doing for the Wyatts? since DB has joined they’ve done nothing but lose

    • Xavier

      Pretty much

  • savokes

    Oooooooooooh

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And there it is! White hot pop!!!

    • Xavier

      What does this do for the Wyatts though

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Heat magnet! With Bryan going away from them like this and Bray continuing the feud, he will get some serious heat!

  • Nostaljack

    Bray’s face is so expressive. I love that!

  • The Breaker

    What is this?

  • Stephen Cash

    Bryan attacks Bray. Wyatt’s can’t do angthing

  • savokes

    Listen to that crowd!

  • The Breaker

    Was it somehow Bryan’s plan to get Bray in the cage?

  • Seth

    This is awesome.

    • Cubed56

      this is stupid

      • Seth

        Listen to the crowd.

        • Cubed56

          well yea, but what was the point of this whole thing, they could’ve just had a match at the royal rumble instead

          • Jesse Sherwood

            The point was to take him from a large pop to Nuclear levels of over. And they achieved their goal!

          • Cubed56

            I agree with that, but those yes chants weren’t any louder then the ones he was getting 3 weeks ago.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’ll have to check the dB levels, but I had to turn my TV down, as I was scared it was going to wake my kids up!

          • Cubed56

            lol

          • Seth

            Plus now everyone just wants to see Daniel Bryan kick anyone’s ass.

  • Xavier

    I hope this is the death of this angle so Bryan can move on to bigger & better things

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It looks like it!!!!

    • Cubed56

      and they don’t bury the wyatts

      • Xavier

        The Wyatts got nothing out of this feud

        • Cubed56

          honestly I think creative actually realized they messed up and killed this whole angle before they got in too deep, this way Bryan still stays red hot, and the wyatts don’t get hurt too bad.

          • David F.

            I actually thought Bray held his own tonight and he has potential to be main event player. I just want to see more of him in ring before I would be comfortable with him playing big role at Wrestlemania. who knew Husky Harris could play creepy heel so well

  • Jesse Sherwood

    There is an AE level pop for you!!!

    • The Breaker

      Nuclear pop!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That pop caused the Big Bang!!!

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Omg Bryan!! Yes!!!

  • Xavier

    The slow YES lol

  • Nostaljack

    You want a lack of logic, you just got it. All of a sudden, it’s over? What was the point of this?

    • Stephen Cash

      No lack of logic… Bryan got close to Bray so he could get him alone

      • Nostaljack

        How was he to know that he’d get a cage match with Usos and him? He couldn’t have known that was coming

    • The Breaker

      It was Bryan’s plan all along. Makes perfect sense. And it wasn’t dragged out very long, which was good.

      • Nostaljack

        Again, how could he know he’d be in a cage match with Bray?

        • The Breaker

          Who booked the match? Kane? Perhaps they were in it together?

          • Nostaljack

            Kane’s a heel authority. That wouldn’t make sense.

          • The Breaker

            He could be an inside man.

  • Stephen Cash

    Interesting… Maybe Bryan talked to Kane before and Team Hell No worked together

  • savokes

    Freaking ridiculous…they are eating out of Bryan’s hands

    • Xavier

      That’s why he needs to win the rumble and not Batista

      • Cubed56

        I just hope that lesnar is not the champ going into WM then, what would be the point of lesnar being champ for a little over a month to lose it at Mania, it only further kills Lesnars credibility. I called it awhile though, not sure if you recall, but I said bryan will win the RR and beat Orton at Mania for the title bringing the whole authority angle full circle. Now the only question I have, is was Kane joining the Authority DB and Kane working together all along.

  • Xavier

    Is Bryan attempting a WHisper In the Wind

  • Nostaljack

    Man, he’s over. Wow!

  • The Breaker

    This is an awesome sight!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This is the biggest I have smiled in a LONG time at the ending of a Raw, aside from last week! THAT is the crowd reaction I long to hear each week!

  • Cubed56

    is it possible WWE actually listened to the crowd and realized this Daniel Wyatt thing would never work with the reactions he was still getting, so they killed it before they got in too deep?

    • Xavier

      I think so

  • savokes

    What made that even better…was NO talking from the commentators, they finally let the moment be its own commentary

    • Jesse Sherwood

      WWE could afford to do that more often!

      • savokes

        Completely agree!

  • Stephen Cash

    Now I can see Bryan winning the RR!!

  • Tim

    Dare I say Daniel Bryan is the most electrifying man in sports entertainment. Give this guy the damn world title.

  • Stephen Cash

    When was the last time someone was over like DB?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, I’d have to go all the way back to the height of Hulkamania or to SCSA.

      • Xavier

        Batista & Cena in late 04/early 05, Jeff Hardy in 2008-2009 and Punk in 2011

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Bryan is dwarfing those examples, by a landslide.

          • Xavier

            Not at all. He just has a chant. But they were just as over.

        • Steve pritchard

          Agreed . I think punk/Bryan at mania would draw huge.

  • Danny Philippi

    Fantastic! Now Bryan can rid from the Wyatts at the Rumble and win the WWE Championship at EC. With the ending tonight and Batista’s return next week, the Road to Mania just got longer by several miles.

    I have a confession. I have a swearing problem. Just kept screaming “F yes!!” just now. Bryan is the real Best In The World and the fan reactions make my heart smile wide. Absolutely love it!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      *Fist bumps Brandon*

      • Brandon Ceielo

        *fist bumps back*

  • Steve pritchard

    Finally. Some logic! Bryan being in the Wyatt family made no sense whatsoever ! Now here’s hoping for punk/Bryan at mania. I don’t care who wins . We the fans would win either way.

    • Stephen Cash

      No way that happens now…. Punk will face HHH, and hopefully Bryan faces Orton for the title

  • Danny Philippi

    Breaking News: Danny Philippi to be on hand for Impact Wrestling Open Thread this Thursday. For those doing so as well, see you then. Others, see you next Monday. Have a pleasant week.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Have fun Danny! I’ll be out this week, as I have a medical procedure I’ll be prepping for.

  • WhataDB

    There’s over…..and then there is what we just saw. That reaction deserves no name…just appreciation.

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

      Honestly, when was the last time an entire arena was on their feet moving and chanting in unison like that?

      • WhataDB

        Agreed, but the thing that caught me was it truly was a chant version of a slow clap….it wasn’t always a fast YES. But it built…and built….and built.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        We talk about nuclear heat and X-Pac heat, but Bryan just hit his own level of a pop!

  • Stephen Cash

    Either Bryan wins the RR Orton retains and again at EC (Bryan vs Orton), or Batista wins RR and Lesnar wins title at EC… I pray for the former. Unfortunately no Punk vs Bryan for the title this year…. Punk vs HHH it will be.

    • Xavier

      Bryan wins the rumble and Lesnar wins the title at EC and Bryan oges over Lesnar at Mania for the title clean

      • Xavier

        *goes over

        • David F,

          I just hope this means Bryan gets a big match at Wrestlemania

      • Cubed56

        now I disagree with that, I mean I want bryan to win, but what good does it do lesnar to be champ for a short time

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

        I’d pay to see that, all $9.99!

        • Xavier

          Lol me too

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Heck, I’d pay the $59.99!

      • The Breaker

        That would be an epic David vs. Goliath type match!

  • Kristolium

    I think the people have a new people’s champ! i mean the universe has a new universe champ!

  • Brandon Ceielo

    The whole night (that I did see) just washed away Impact’s dirtiness. Hopefully the Genesis show is good because I don’t want to give up watching them again. I’m gonna be here as long as my alarms don’t mess up and we don’t get more power outages.

  • Cubed56

    Has anyone thought about this? Recently Taker has expressed possibly changing his match at WM to a match against DB. Could this move be to possibly get Bryan so over, that maybe….just maybe he can beat the streak?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      IF, and that is a huge if, he did beat The Streak, Bryan would be cemented as one of the greatest of all time.

      • Cubed56

        that’s why I am asking, I mean somebody has got to be WAY over for them to even consider ending the streak, and Bryan is that guy

        • David F.

          Plus Taker just had major hip surgery dont know how many wrestlemanias he has left

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Personally, my desire has always been for Taker to retire 25-0, with his send off match being against Kane. He’d win, come on Raw the next night and formally retire, and we have a mini HOF ceremony that night.

          • David F,

            I just hope Bryan either faces Taker for streak and wins or wins the title either way I will be happy. He deserves to have his Mania moment

          • Cubed56

            I agree with that, but I also feel taker could give back to the WWE by giving them the mega star they covet. Afterall it was WWE that allowed him to become the major star at WM that he is today

          • David F,

            No more Kane v Taker matches please! Dont you remember how awful the last one was

          • Jesse Sherwood

            David, it’s not about the quality of the match in this case for me. It’s the fact that these two men have had their careers so intertwined with one another that it would feel appropriate that Takers last match would be with the man he helped make big in this business.

    • Stephen Cash

      Taker would never switch to Bryan if it meant him losing the streak, but Bryan is the one person I would be okay ending it, including Punk last year.

      • Cubed56

        Taker is the one who pitched the idea

    • Xavier

      I said the exact same thing a few days ago lol. The only way I wanna see Bryan/Taker is if Bryan wins. If not then I’d rather see Bryan win the title. Bryan deserves to win at Mania

      • Cubed56

        I agree. Maybe Taker comes back heel who knows, really getting the fans more behind Bryan going into the match. You need a darkside to beat taker, and perhaps this little time with the
        Wyatts, allowed DB to grasp that side of him that it takes to beat a guy like Taker, especially with the streak on the line.

        • Xavier

          No heel turn. Beating a face Taker would mean more

          • Cubed56

            Your right. I do feel Taker deserves to be undefeated, but I also feel WWE allowed him to become this star at WM, so he could pay them back by giving them the mega star they so desperately want

    • Brandon Ceielo

      The Undertaker is God in my eyes and I nearly had a heart attack during his Orton and both HBK matches. I was there live at WM26 just because of Taker, Punk and Edge.
      That said, I would be ok with Bryan beating Taker. I was never ok with the idea of him losing the streak before Bryan.

      • Xavier

        Same here. if there was ever a time to do it then Bryan would be that dude

    • savokes

      You took the thoughts from my mind and the words from my post right from me hah…I was thinking this same thing. Would anyone but Bryan deserve that honor? Does Bryan even deserve it?

      • Brandon Ceielo

        *Starts Yes! Chant*

        • savokes

          “Slow-clap” style or normal? Hah, I don’t want to look foolish when I join in…

          • Brandon Ceielo

            Ha. Slow clap just earlier was Epic so I’d start that if I could.

      • Cubed56

        For all the work Bryan has put in to get where he is today, yes he deserves it, but for all the work and everything Taker has given WWE, he deserves to retire undefeated at WM also.

        • Brandon Ceielo

          This is where my heart stands as well. Undertaker undefeated. With Bryan white-hot though, that match would be amazing.

          • Cubed56

            In all honesty, I respect the hell out Taker, but id respect him so much more if he did the honors at WM one time and gave the back to the WWE. Making Bryan or whoever the mega star they covet much like WWE made him the mega star he is at WM

          • Brandon Ceielo

            Yeah, like I said earlier though, I am finally ok with the thought of him losing at Wm if it’s Bryan. A few WM events I bought solely for Undertaker. He is God to me.
            My heart though says retire still undefeated but it’s ok if he loses.
            Whatever happens, they both deserve the honor which comes for them.

    • The Breaker

      It’s entirely possible. I can see Taker wanting to put someone over before riding off into the sunset. And Bryan is the only guy right now that is deserving.

      • Cubed56

        I agree. I also think that Taker deserves to go undefeated, but I am a person who feels WWE allowed taker to become the star at Wm that he is, and he could pay them back, by giving them the shining star they’ve been looking for since the days of Austin and the Rock

        • The Breaker

          I don’t think dropping The Streak would hurt Taker’s legacy. He’s near the end, and Bryan is an incredible wrestler.

          • Cubed56

            100% agree, if anything is would further the legacy of Taker in my opinion

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And I just realized I crossed the 8000 comment mark tonight! YAY!

    • Cubed56

      congrats dude

    • The Breaker

      Only 1000 more until you can say you’re over 9000! I know that’s Xavier’s shtick but you can steal it like he stole the Funkadactyls and Brodus’ music!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        YES!!! And my goal is 10,000 by WM30!

        • The Breaker

          It’s the Road to WM so there will be a lot to talk about!

  • David F.

    Great Raw ending. Bryan is super duper over! Bryan v Bray at Rumble for spot at Rumble then Bryan wins Rumble and wins title at Mania. Maybe have Bryan v Batista v Orton for title?

  • Stephen Cash

    Bryan vs Orton wwe world title match
    Taker vs SHIELD
    Lesnar vs Batista
    HHH vs Punk
    Cena in something with Hogan… My WM predictions

  • Seth

    Time for some chicken noodle soup(because I’m ill) and then some sleep. I’ll take that crowd exploding like that for a close any day of the week.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night Seth!

  • WhataDB

    For Sale: Dark Grey jumpsuit, slightly used. Boy am I glad Vinny didn’t put that on the market to sell!

  • savokes

    Alright ya’ll, have a great night…let’s hope we don’t have a letdown next week

  • JR Texx (Jamie)

    May have been wrong when I thought Punk could win the RR, seems to be setting up Punk V Hunter. Hunter will be wanting to get involved in the Wrestlemania line up,
