The entrances:

The only televised entrance was Ricardo Rodriguez, who came out with Alberto Del Rio. Justin Roberts, flu and all, is the ring announcer and goes over the stipulation of the match.

The start:

The bell rings and this one is underway. Jack Swagger is at ringside as are World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee. It’s Big E Langston and Ricardo Rodriguez in the ring. Langston, in control, easily shoves Rodriguez to the mat.

Mid-match notes:

Clubbing forearm from Big E Langston on Ricardo Rodriguez. Ricado goes for a counter but is greeted with multiple powerslam backbreakers. Basically, Langston slams Ricardo down on his knee, back first. Big E backs Ricardo into the corner and just dismantles him. The crowd seems pretty quiet as Langston charges Rodriguez shoulder-first into an opposite corner.

Ricardo builds a counter and even hits a kick to the jaw. Zeb Colter is involved in the match and he wants Rodriguez. Loud USA chants as Big E mows Rodriguez down with a clothesline. Langston works on Rodriguez with Zeb helping with the attack on Ricardo. Colter actually pushed Big E Langston aside so he could get his own shots in on him. Colter claims his knee went out as Swagger gets in to check on him.

Meanwhile, Ricardo sneaks in with a bucket and hits Langston with it. Langston is unfazed and gives him a belly-to-belly suplex with authority. Langston drops the straps but Alberto Del Rio comes in and hits an enzuigiri. Ziggler hits a dropkick on him. When Swagger gets involved, Langston hits a clothesline, sending him to the outside.

Rodriguez is laid out in the center of the ring and Colter goes for the cover. AJ Lee grabs the referee. While Colter protests the referee, Ricardo rolls up Colter for the three count and the win.

    Well that was a interesting way to start RAW lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Is this the beginning of the end for Dolph? I have always maintained that I don’t think creative is fully behind Ziggler as Champion. I have been expecting a short reign or an unsuccesful cash in from Day 1. Don’t get me wrong I am thrilled that Dolph has the belt but I am not sure that creative is fully behind him

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      I’ve been worried about that myself, especially after he hasn’t appeared on the last 2 Smackdowns. I would hope they would take this as a chance to up the prestige of the WHC.

    • The Breaker

      I think we all have the same concerns. But, it does look like he’ll win the Triple Threat because of how much he’s been overshadowed. They have to do a better job of showcasing Dolph though, especially since he’s World champ.

  • T-Zone

    a Ladder Match for the World Title between Ziggler, Del Rio & Swagger is a welcome in my book

  • The Breaker

    If Cena ever turns heel, it should be on a staged Make-A-Wish segment live on Monday Night RAW. lol

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      That would be too cruel. I would actually stop watching if that happened.

      • The Breaker

        Well, in my fantasy WWE such repercussions aren’t an issue. lol

  • Isaac

    WWE has found the solution to solve the boos Cena gets – Come out with a make a wish kid. Impossible to boo.

  • T-Zone

    Major props to Cena showing support for the children

  • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

    What are your thoughts on Randy Orton? Do you see him as a main event competitor anymore? Should he be in the World Title hunt?

    • Isaac

      I do still see him as a main event talent. Its apparent the general crowd still cares about him. I would not revolve a show around him though but I would put him in the world title hunt every once in awhile. Or in meaningful feuds with up and coming talent. But im getting ahead of myself

    • Dustin F

      Orton still gets huge pops. Unless Daniel Bryan gets another World Title run Orton should absolutely be in that picture

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    Cena’s Make-A-Wish commitment is one of the best and most generous things in the WWE today. While I my not like his character, the man is an excellent example of the kind of person that everyone should aspire to be like in has charitable nature.

    • Kenneth

      Nice on John’s part but when those kids grow up and look back on that they’ll be really embarrassed.

      • Adamtrace

        Those kids won’t grow up stupid, that’s why they’re part of make a wish. Bravo to John and wwe for being awesome to those kids

      • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

        Most Make-A-Wish children are in terminal stages of cancer or other diseases. This night was the highlight of some of their lives. For you to knock on the kids like that, Kenneth, is a disgrace.

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

        Some Make-A-Wish kids are chronic, like my daughter Ellie, but they were not sure if she was going to make it at that point.

        I spent a year on a chronic/terminal pediatrics ward, and I know what the littlest things can mean to an ill child. I remember one day a hot air balloon flew very low over our solarium. The end of the room was all windows and skylights, and the balloon’s basket was only like 20 feet off the top of the hospital. Being on the top floor with all those windows, that balloon looked close enough to touch. It brought a smile to so many faces, and we talked about it for the rest of the week. Sometimes it’s the little things that mean the most, but the big things – like being on stage with Cena will be with them, no longer how long they’re on this world.

  • Dustin F

    That segment with Cena was really cool. Actually glad he didn’t turn heel at WM so he could do that. OK still wishing a little he did lol

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      It’s segments like that which makes me think that he can’t turn, despite what we fans want. He is the only person in WWE that I can see in this kind of role. Sheamus is starting to get up there, but still has a ways to go.

      • The Breaker

        I think Ryback could be that guy. Before he turned heel his reactions were unlike anyone else on the roster. His character appeals to a wider audience than Cena. He still has lots of room for improvement on the mic, but the potential is there.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

          I just didn’t see him getting on that level with the kids. Cena gets completely down on the kids level and I feel Ryback would still, even as a face, kind of scare kids thanks to his size.

          • The Breaker

            It’s an astute point. But kids would definitely be doing the ‘Feed Me More’ thing right along with him. Kids look up to larger than life characters, and Ryback fits the bill perfectly. He’s like a cool superhero to them.

          • BlazeKing

            Ryback is really a big ass puppy dog, lol. That’s what makes it so funny to me. The closest thing to his real personality was a part of Skip Sheffield being that he was kind of goofy. Still would not want to be around him when he’s angry. Oh man! But give him a bag of Rice Krispie Treats and he might just calm down. Just feed him more! (+1 to anybody who knows about Ryan Reeves’ appetite!)

      • Dustin F

        100% agree. Until Shemus or someone steps up your right Cena is the only guy

        • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

          The only other one I would think would be Rey Mysterio, but he has been out of WWE for quite some time now with those personal issues he had.

          • http://www.facebook.com/chloe.n.bell Chloe Natalie Bell

            Orton,he’s a kind,caring and sensitive guy

          • Smart Mark

            Y2J!!!!!!!!!

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Timothy-Lowe-Jr/100000559123347 Timothy Lowe Jr

        Antonio is a bad guy and just granted a wish. I believe miz did when he was a heel. So it could be possible.

  • The Breaker

    Is this a sign of bigger and better things for Cody Rhodes down the line?

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      I would hope, but they have been programmed in feuds before that went nowhere for Cody.

  • Dustin F

    Someone explain why Orton and Rhodes are in a match. What happened to Rhodes Scholars? Are they done again or is creative taking a break tonight?

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      I’m willing to bet that Sandow will face Sheamus.

      • Isaac

        True. But I actually really enjoyed the single matches Sandow and Sheamus had a few months back. So I cant complain if this does happen

        • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

          I can’t either, but it was overdone back then. As long as it doesn’t start another chain of 5 matches, I’ll be fine.

    • T-Zone

      I think it’s just apart of a bigger picture for Orton’s push. What better way to continue then to face off with a former ally… Cody has been going up & down with Damien Sandow. First they amicably break up, then forced back.

  • Xavier

    Very good Orton/Rhodes match.

    • Isaac

      The RKOs out of nowhere have not been quite as surprising as they used to

      • Xavier

        True, but still a very good match. Kudos to both Orton & Rhodes. The fans were into the match as well

  • Dustin F

    What a match. Should have put Cody over though. Great finish too

  • The Breaker

    What we just saw with Orton and Rhodes is leagues better than anything we’ll get from Orton and Big Show.

  • Cubed56

    Matches like that prove why Orton shoud once again be in the main event picture, and why Cody Rhodes should be elevated to that status.

    • Xavier

      Agreed

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Timothy-Lowe-Jr/100000559123347 Timothy Lowe Jr

      I’m glad Orton got kicked out of the main event. But it’s been awhile and he needs to prove he’s worth to be back in. I could go for him re entering it. Cody should have already been in a few world title matchs.

  • Dustin F

    Can’t believe I’m gonna say this, but I might have to watch at least one episode of Total Divas

  • The Breaker

    Twin Magic! Amazing! Never saw that coming!! =/

    And now the ref finally sees it? Doesn’t make any sense. Will they not be able to do it anymore?

  • The Breaker

    Should The Shield win the tag titles?

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      Yes, and then defend them under the Freebird rule.

      • The Breaker

        I’m just worried about the competition (or lack thereof) they’d have. 3MB? PrimeTime Players? The Usos? Maybe we’ll see a bunch of singles wrestlers coming together as teams to take them out?

        • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

          That was my thought, and while doing that have a credible team build up and score an upset, fueling dissension in The Shield.

          • The Breaker

            That will eventually happen, I just hope it doesn’t anytime soon.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

            I give it 8 months.

    • Dustin F

      Yes

  • Dustin F

    I’m getting really tired of WWE cutting into entrances because of commercials. I think I’d be less mad if they would just sponsor every wrestler lol. Imagine The Shield with a “Sonic” patch on their vests lol

  • Isaac

    I pray every single night that the Shield is not having this monster run only to have a run in with Triple H’s shovel

  • Xavier

    The 3MB can stop The Shield lol

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      Believe in the 3 Man Band!

    • Smart Mark

      Shut up Xavier

  • Dustin F

    I have a feeling that 3MB would job even to Justin Gabriel

    • The Breaker

      It’s at this point that you really start to question their very existence. lol

  • The Breaker

    I really, really hope that they don’t use Cena’s injury as a scenario in which he ‘overcomes the odds’ to beat Ryback.

  • Taylor

    Domino’s pizza segment was amazing!! Edge of seat stuff

  • The Breaker

    Will the King’s pizza get delivered to him on time? What a cliffhanger! Guess we’ll see in the main event.

  • Dustin F

    I have a good feeling JBL isn’t kayfabing when he says that Dolphin needs to show more respect to the World Title. And I agree with him. I’m really glad Dolph is champ but I hate that he does that with the strap

  • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Wow this is a fresh new exciting match that we have NEVER seen before. (sarcasm)

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      Ziggler vs. Kofi has happened 45 times before in some form or fashion on WWE TV, be it in Singles, Tag Team, or some kind of Gimmick match.

  • The Breaker

    What are the chances Dolph loses another non-title match here?

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      Zilch, as it is against Kofi.

    • Dustin F

      Dolph loses every match. When he had MITB, when he was in a big match, and now that he is champ. I just don’t get it. Makes me wonder how long his reign will be, although he did have MITB for a very long time

  • Isaac

    I think the wwe has lost sight of how effective number 1 contender matches/feuds can be. Now you just have to beat a title holder in a non title match. That just makes your champion look weak no matter how you spin it

    • Dustin F

      Awesome point. I’d love to see #1 contender matches again.

  • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Do you guys see Team Hell No dropping the belts at ER or Payback? I
    honestly would prefer to see them drop it at Payback as it fits in well
    with the Payback theme of the PPV. Team Hell No can retain at ER,
    handing their Shield their first loss (even if it is by DQ) and then The
    Shield can get Payback by winning the belts at Payback

  • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

    This is Kofi vs Dolph 20003 now? I lost count

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      46, if you include tag team and gimmick matches.

      • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

        Thanks for the info Jesse

  • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Do you guys find Kofi vs Ziggler entertaining still or has this rivalry been overplayed?

    • Dustin F

      They do put on good matches but even that isn’t enough after so long

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      Way overplayed. They have plenty of other talent they could have Kofi face, and Ziggler needs a main event win to really establish the start of this reign.

  • Dustin F

    At least Ziggler actually won

  • Dustin F

    As per a story ran here on WNW it looks like that was the set up for Big E winning a secondary title.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    Looks like Big E will be going after Kofi. Honestly, I hope he is, as Kofi having the belt is overdone at this point.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    Looks like WWE is rehashing the secret admirer storyline from NXT. Hopefully, we will have a new diva debuting soon!

    • http://www.facebook.com/chloe.n.bell Chloe Natalie Bell

      Im her secret admirer

    • BlazeKing

      I was just going to post that. This screams Audrey Marie. Makes sense since WWE needs to replace the divas that left this year.

    • Chris

      I’ve got a feeling it’s either A.J. playing mind games to win the title, or someone like Cody.

  • Isaac

    I feel like “Ryback Rules” is a catchphase a 6 year old could have come up with

    • The Breaker

      “Hi, I’m Dolph Ziggler,” was a better one. lol

      • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

        The Champ is here while you aren’t holding a title is even better!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Timothy-Lowe-Jr/100000559123347 Timothy Lowe Jr

      O’doyle rules

  • Dustin F

    Someone has got to tell Ryback to loosen up just a little. OK a lot. Why does he have to breathe like a
    400 lb fat guy every time he talks

  • Dustin F

    Was that a heel turn by the crowd by stealing Jerry’s pizza?

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    And Ryder is going to get his Ankle broken, thus writing him off TV.

  • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

    How long do you think this match will be ?

  • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Why do I feel like Raw is going to end with Cena standing tall over a prone Ryback?

  • cobra

    Ok being from Michigan, I offended that Michael Cole would say Domino’s started in Denver. Domino’s was founded in Ypsilanti, Michigan by Tom Monaghan (former owner of the Detroit Tigers) and his brother James.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    Tug of War with Mark Henry?

  • Isaac

    I always laugh at how sometimes a wwe face amounts to nothing more than being a bully. Be A Star

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    Ok, if Tensai and Clay couldn’t win, Sheamus had no chance! And the fact they made it look like Sheamus was nearly on the same level as Henry was ridiculous.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Timothy-Lowe-Jr/100000559123347 Timothy Lowe Jr

      I’m sure in real life sheamus is more stronger than Brodus and tensai.

  • The Breaker

    I hope the show ends with a staredown between Jerry Lawler and the Domino’s employee that screwed up his order.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      Breaker, you know the show has to end with Cena on top! So Cena runs down, shoos Jerry from the ring, and gives the Domino’s employee an AA!

      • The Breaker

        And Cole would be singing Cena’s praises for coming to the rescue. lol

        • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

          All the while JBL shouting at Cole that Cena should be charged for assault. lol

  • The Breaker

    The crowd should’ve booed the crap out of that tug-of-war segment. It was the definition of awful.

  • http://www.facebook.com/chloe.n.bell Chloe Natalie Bell

    0rton is the best,sexiest,plays to the crowd all the time,has unique signature moves,and always adds new signature moves like the t-bone suplex,there’s no one better

  • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Ryback returns to the ring to Attack Cena after the Team Hell No Match. Cena hits the AA on Ryback to end the show. I am calling it from now

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    They should really take note that Ricardo gets a bigger pop than Del Rio. There is something wrong there.

    • The Breaker

      It’s because Ricardo knows a lot more about playing to the crowd than Del Rio.

  • Dustin F

    Damn how far can a guy fall/get humbled?! Cesaro gets no entrance on TV and his US Title rematch is on Main Event? Wow

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      It is a travesty. Hopefully, he can come out of this stronger.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    This is one time I am glad that I don’t have the WWE app, as Cesaro’s yodeling makes my ears bleed.

  • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

    We missed Cesaro’s yodelling. THANK GOD

  • The Breaker

    Cena just called Maddox Braden Walker! lol

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      Sadly, Braden Walker was better than Maddox!

      • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

        :)

      • BlazeKing

        Braden Walker was crap. Chris Harris was the man.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

          Compared to Brad Maddox, Braden Walker was a main event talent! I do agree that Chris Harris was much better before WWE touched him, but part of his run was on him as well, as he showed up about 30 pounds heavier than when he left TNA.

  • Dustin F

    Is it just me or is Cesaro humbling Del Rio in this match. Damn this guy can work!

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      He’s just showing the difference between talent and flash.

  • Xavier

    Very good Del Rio/Cesaro match so far.

    • Cubed56

      Everyone says cesaro is being humbled, but after allowing him to work an excellent match like that with a no.1 contender, hopefully this is is the start of his accession up the pecking order.

      • Xavier

        Very good point. Even Cesaro fans shouldn’t be upset that he went under b/c he put up a lot of offense in this match. And the right guy went over, as you said ADR is the #1 container so he should win.

  • Xavier

    Ladder match involving Ziggler & ADR should be pretty good. This triple threat could steal the show at Extreme Rules.

    • Cubed56

      Could? It will everyone knows how well Ziggler sells, and don’t count out swagger, not saying he’s gonna win, just saying he’s one of the better athletes in wwe, his athleticism will add a lot to the match.

      • Xavier

        I’ve never been a fan of Swagger’s ring work or mic work honestly. I don’t hate the guy but I never felt he should of won MITB at WM26 nor do I think he should be receiving a main event push, but it is what it is.

        • Cubed56

          I agree, I’m also not a fan of him, I just think his athleticism will only add more excitement and possible WOW moments to the match.

  • The Breaker

    I hope TPTB were watching that match, because Cesaro showed everyone why he deserves to be booked higher up in the card.

  • http://www.facebook.com/robbie.newman.5 Robbie Newman

    Is Generico appearing under our noses?

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    Crap, looks like Summer Rae is his permanent dancer.

  • The Breaker

    It is important to note that Jerry Lawler liked Fandango before it was cool.

    • BlazeKing

      I liked Fandango when he was “Simply Johnny Curtis” lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    Khali’s dancing is the Lead Legs dance.

    • The Breaker

      There’s a name for it?

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    They acknowledge her name finally!

    • The Breaker

      She’s no longer Ms. Fandango!

      • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

        But that also cemented her as Fandango’s dancer. And she is getting worse about trying to overshadow him.

        • BlazeKing

          Well once she starts to overshadow him, she should already be competing in the divas division so the “breakup” wouldn’t be too hard to plan. She’s got the Kelly Kelly kind of vibe but more talented.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

            Her matches that I have seen in NXT so far have been pretty rough to watch. And I agree about her having a Kelly Kelly vibe, but in my mind that’s not a good thing, as she tokk a long time to become adequate in the ring.

          • Smart Mark

            I feel like she gives more of a Michelle McCool vibe, and that is something that the WWE needs since McCool and Eve left.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

            And it is nice to see you again BlazeKing! I don’t know if I just haven’t seen your comments, but it has been a while since I last saw you.

        • The Breaker

          True. I was hoping it would only be temporary.

  • Dustin F

    God I wish they would’ve just replayed the tug of war segment. Why don’t they just get rid of Kahli?

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

    Khali can’t even sell a chopblock right!

      Stop watching it then if you don’t like it then instead of coming on here whining like a little bitch everyweek

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Timothy-Lowe-Jr/100000559123347 Timothy Lowe Jr

        I’ll come on here and bitch as long as I feel need to and that’s until they make sense. Don’t like my comments tough shit dislike it then. The ratings are shit cause everyone notices it. If I feel like saying something negative I will.

  • Dustin F

    Is there any chance ever that Cena will change his entrance music. I’d bet he’d get a huge pop and huge boost if he did

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      I doubt it, considering he did it with his brother.

  • The Breaker

    I bet Cena and Bryan broke out the diagrams and talked strategy before this one.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      If by diagrams you mean the Bella Twins and strategy you mean got naked, then yes.

      • The Breaker

        I know RAW wasn’t great this week, but how did your mind get there? lol

        • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

          I don’t know. Bad week for me with my family and something snapped.

          • The Breaker

            It’s ok. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t at your perverted wit. :P

  • Dustin F

    Any chance Ryback goes over at Extreme Rules since Cena is hurt?

  • Cubed56

    Who says Cena doesn’t put anyone over!

  • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Well that was…..abrupt

  • The Breaker

    Yeah.. the show really went off air with a whimper this week.

  • gagep931

    Damn, Cena got pinned clean? Wooooooowwwwwww xD

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      It’s his annual clean loss, nothing to see here other than a gimmick dying.

  • http://www.facebook.com/MysticPhoenix22 Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I don’t mind The Shield losing to Team Hell No, but Super Cena, even with him taking the pin this week, needs to be kept as far from The Shield as possible.

  • Danny_Boy

    Cena loses and people on here are still complaining smh. I’m making a shirt for sure that says “IWC, we bitch about everything”.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jesse.sherwood.7 Jesse Sherwood

      I’ll buy one!

    • Chris

      Oddly enough my article tonight was Defending: John Cena. I’m not a Cena mark, but I am a proud member of the IWC. I’m dealing with a strain in ankle similar to what Cena is supposed to be dealing with, it’s a bitch, and I give him a ton of respect for working on it.

  • TomasHunter

    I thought Raw was pretty entertaining this week. Orton and Rhodes put on a great match. The filler spots were annoying, but I did enjoy the Tug of War segment. This would have been a good Raw to watch on my big screen, but I had to work late at DISH. That didn’t stop me from watching the show though. I have DISH Anywhere on my tablet; it’s an app that streams live and recorded TV, so I was able to watch Raw from my desk, and I didn’t miss a moment.

  • Derek Algen
