            Nice to see you.

          • David Jr.

            Hey Kendra claims I started this, so I have too.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I’m surprised you stay loyal
            I’ve been leaving watch parties early as of late.

          • David Jr.

            I tend to stop talking at the end of Raw watch parties because they’re just to many comments, but Smackdown isn’t nearly as much so I can pay attention to this and the show.

  • Andrew

    hello!

  • Ashley

    Hello everyone!

    • Xavier

      What’s good Ashley, long time no see. How you been?

      • Ashley

        I’ve been good. Just working a lot lately. Tis the season for sick people! How have you been?

        • Xavier

          I’ve been good, working a lot as well.

  • David Jr.

    Hopefully Disqus works the entire show tonight.

  • The Breaker

    Greetings, everyone! As I see David already mentioned, Disqus had some issues last night. Let’s see if they worked the bugs out (but do they ever?)!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I left the Watch Party but I after reading over the comments again, I was wondering what happened to you guys.
      But yeah, let’s hope Disqus will work
      Just for 2 hours
      Please?

      • The Breaker

        It would be cool if the Watch Parties could have some kind of app set up so we can live chat. Disqus is okay for regular posts but doesn’t work all that well for this.

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

    Hey everyone.

    • Alex Gallardo

      HEYYYY

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

    Hi guys, I’m here, but I’m not watching SD tonight. Ellie is over to watch the opening ceremonies, so that’s what’s on. But I will be here to hang out.

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

      Okay.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Eh
      We still have you here with us
      And that’s all that matters.

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

        Thanks. She doesn’t watch much TV, doesn’t even have cable, or anything, but this is something she loves, so she drove the hour to come watch with me. For her I can put off watching SD until tomorrow.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I don’t watch much TV myself
          Just wrestling alone takes up to 8 hours of TV time
          I couldn’t handle staring at the TV anymore.

          • David Jr.

            You don’t think about it, but god you’re right 8 hours.

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

            It’s almost always on here, but that doesn’t mean I’m paying attention to it.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Sometimes I’ll just put on as a background noise
            But other than that and wrestling
            It’s too much for me.

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

            With Sam around, some of the shows she likes, it’s only background noise.

    • The Breaker

      You have it on DVR, I’m guessing?

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

        Yes, I made sure it’s catching SD.

        • The Breaker

          Well since you’re here we can let you know which parts are skippable!

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

            Knowing what they put in for recap videos, I’m sure I’ll skip big chunks.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Hell
        I very rarely miss wrestling
        But I record it all the time automatically.

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

          I do too. It’s always caught on the DVR, so I didn’t have to schedule it specifically.

        • The Breaker

          I don’t do that, but I’ve heard a lot of people say they do.

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

    I saw a Ryback Still Rules sign. Seems he still has fans surprisingly

    • The Breaker

      The ‘WWE Universe’ is a huge place…

    • David Jr.

      Or a fan (maybe it’s his brother Wheatback)

  • Ashley

    Smackdown! in my home state!

    • Alex Gallardo

      How close was it to you?

      • Ashley

        I live in WI now so it would have been a 5 hour drive.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Oh
          Well that seems too far away to go to
          I normally hate watching wrestling shows on TV that I’m not at in my hometown.
          But I sure wouldn’t drive for 5 hours in this weather.

          • Ashley

            I’ve done it before but work is just too busy right now to take time off. Hopefully next time around I’ll make it to a show!

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

    I say it everytime but I love the look on Bryan’s face when comes out with the crowd going nuts. He absolutely loves it.

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

      I love that look on Bry’s face. He glows, and it’s as if he’s still in awe every single time.

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

        He’s succeeded beyond the wildest dreams he could have had for his career.

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

          It has to be exciting to have so many people chanting for him through other segments, especially like the Rumble. It has to be shocking after all his time in the indies.

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

            He Knows they are why he is where he is. If it wasn’t for the Raw after Wrestlemania 28 fans supporting him and hijacking that show he would be no where near where he is.

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

            I agree that it would have been slower, but I think he’d have done it.

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

            They weren’t even going to make him a shirt. they would have sent him back to the Mid-card and eventually Released him. I believe that wholeheartedly has the 18 Second loss at Wrestlemania never happened.

  • The Breaker

    It’s long past due for a Kaniel program.

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

      Agreed! I’ve been excited to see them feud.

      • The Breaker

        It’s interesting how circumstance has brought them full circle.

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

          It is, and they were so great together, so I expect much from them fighting.

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

    I honestly like Kane in this role. it shows his mic skills he doesn’t use often.

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

      One of my all time favorite segments was Kane on mic. He was backstage with Rocky and Hogan. He threw their catchphrases and it was good that he was masked as it was obvious that he was struggling through it.

      • Ashley

        I watch that clip frequently on Youtube! Always get a good laugh at it

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

          I love that clip!

      • Xavier

        Lol I remember that

  • The Breaker

    The boiler room is a lonelier place nowadays!

  • David Jr.

    I surprised they mention their past because Kane and Daniel Bryan split 8 months ago, and WWE Logic usually means if it happens that long ago, it never happened.

  • David Jr.

    Daniel Bryan vs. Antonio Cesaro. Should be a good one.

    • Xavier

      No doubt

    • The Breaker

      Match of the night for sure!

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

        Agreed!

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

    Time for the Shield to come out. that Fuse on the faction is getting shorter and shorter.

    • The Breaker

      They’re so great together. I hate to see the group dissolve. If it’s not broke, why force a change?

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

        I think it’s time to see if they can stand on their own.

        • The Breaker

          I think everyone does, me included, but the three of them together is special. And their teamwork allows them all to shine.

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

    Dean Ambrose 102 days since last televised Title defense.

  • David Jr.

    Anybody who has kids and needs Valentines for their child next Friday well here are the greatest Valentines Ever.

    http://www.wrestlecrap.com/uncategorized/early-arrival-gorilla-monsoon-valentines/

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

      Sam would love them, the school would have a fit!

      • David Jr.

        Sam knows who Gorilla Monsoon is? And why would a school throw a fit over Gorilla Monsoon?

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

          She does because of a big discussion about gorilla position. Sam’s biological mother makes everything hard at the school for Sam, so it would turn into a huge problem.

          • David Jr.

            Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan are a big reason why I ever became a wrestling fan in the first place. So a fan of his, is good in my book.

          • Xavier

            They were the greatest together. Monsoon was so great at pointing out the little things in matches and making them a big deal and making it all seem so real and Heenan well…I can’t say enough about Heenan.

          • David Jr.

            They’re chemistry together was amazing. When Gorilla passed away and they paid tribute to him on Nitro, you could tell how much Monsoon meant to Heenan.
            And when it comes to Heenan, easily one of my top 3 favorite people in wrestling history.

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

            I agree on Heenan. I’m slowly introducing Sam to the history, and she’s loving it.

          • David Jr.

            With the WWE Network, you’ll have more access to it than ever.

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

            Exactly! That’s the plan, as long as she doesn’t insist on watching everything Scott Hall ever did in the first month!

          • Xavier

            YES YES YES

          • Xavier

            I’m gonna receive some flack for this but I would take them over JR & King.

          • David Jr.

            You won’t receive any flack from me because I too would take Gorilla and Heenan over JR and King.

  • The Breaker

    Dolph’s slacking on his hair again!

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

      I’ve been tweeting at him about his hair. It looks so horrible!

      • The Breaker

        And it’s not like he’s not been on TV. Inexcusable!

        • Xavier

          His hair is being buried worse then he is

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

            My tweeting helped to get Daniels out of pleated pants, so I was hoping it would help Ziggy’s hair – not so much.

          • Xavier

            Lol

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

            I’ve had bleached hair in the past, I know what it takes. I also don’t have it bleached now because I know I can’t keep up with it the way my health is. But I’m not on TV, so I don’t see as my gray roots matter as much right now.

          • Xavier

            LMAO I feel ya, it looks like he put very little effort into it this week. Either that or he’s trying to start a new trend lol.

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

            Please, no! It looks horrid!

          • Xavier

            The Fro-Hawk & Skinny Jeans look horrid as well but they are trending so you never know lol

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

            True, but I’m old enough that I can look at styles and wonder what people are thinking.

          • Xavier

            I’m somewhere in the middle. I’m not old persae but I’m far from young now. I grew up in the era of 2Pac & Biggie and too see Hip Hop reduced to Lil Wayne & Skinny Jeans makes me sick

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

            I grew up wearing skinnies, so I love it. I was annoyed when wider pants came in because it reminded me of the horrid pants I wore when I was very young.

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

            I wonder if he wanting to do something different and letting his hair grow out naturally. especially with Billy Gunn working with the main roster right now.

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

    Dean Ambrose is the 2nd longest reigning WWE US Champion if you don’t count the NWA/WCW lineage. At 264 is 7th all time 2 days from passing Ric Flair for 6th if you do include the NWA/WCW lineage.

    • The Breaker

      Sad that such a historic reign is so inconsequential.

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

        That’s putting it mildly. This reign has been downright infuriating for many fans.

        • The Breaker

          It really didn’t make any sense to put the title on a guy that mainly works as part of a team. The title meant close to nothing before Ambrose held it, and now it means even less. I didn’t think that was possible.

    • David Jr.

      The Longest in WWE history is now the TNA Investor.

    Every time I see the preview for the new RoboCop, I wonder if Sting will sign with the company who brings him in to watch his back.

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

    That dropkick Reigns does is insane.

  • Xavier

    That was interesting

  • The Breaker

    And Ziggler takes the pin, obvs.

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

    That was might have been the sickest Superman Punch Reigns has done yet.

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

    I am really loving the personality Luke Harper has shown the last couple weeks.

  • Xavier

    Looks like we are off to a fast start with the comments this week :-)

  • Andrew

    man i can not wait til the wwe network gets here. who here is getting it?

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

      I am, but not sure I would be if it wasn’t for my writing. Not sure I’d be able to justify it right now.

      • Andrew

        good point

    • The Breaker

      With WrestleMania coming up, I don’t see why anyone here wouldn’t purchase it.

      • Andrew

        definately

  • David Jr.

    The whole conversation about Sheamus a steel toe boot is dumb, since he’s uses the bottom of his boot not the toe.

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

      Commentary in a nutshell.

    • The Breaker

      Ryback made the claim. Enough said.

    • Xavier

      Steel Bottom Boots lol

  • Xavier

    Ryback going air borne lol

    • The Breaker

      Guess he’s trying to kill the Goldberg comparisons.

      • Xavier

        Honestly I never thought they had much in common except for the both being bald & huge but everything else about them was completely different

        • The Breaker

          Regarding his ring work they really aren’t all that similar, but it’s his look that set people off. And then he went around wearing the leather jacket. He had to know how they’d react to that!

          • Xavier

            Lol true. If Ryback’s ring work wasn’t so sloppy he probably would of been a very big deal. I can’t deny the fact that he was super over in late 2012/early 2013

          • The Breaker

            It was a combination of a lot of things. Sloppy in-ring work, a bad attitude, and inane booking.

          • Xavier

            True

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

    that was new. Ryback tried a splash from the top rope.

  • Xavier

    Sheamus is such an underrated worker. Very effective as a heel or face as well.

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

      I feel a lot of people discount him because of his friendship with HHH. That is sad IMO

      • Xavier

        And because he didn’t come up thru the Indies. Which could be said about a few other guys

    • The Breaker

      He’s very good in the ring. His style is entertaining as well. It’s just his corny uber-babyface personality that grates on a lot of people’s nerves.

      • Xavier

        Only “smarks” have a problem with it. He’s a good walking tall type of babyface

        • The Breaker

          He really doesn’t deserve the amount of crap the IWC gives him. That all said, I would prefer to see him go back to his heel character.

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

            Only if they did it in an organic way that made sense. Too many turns are just daft these days.

          • The Breaker

            True. Titus O’Neil’s being the latest example of that.

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

            Exactly, but Big Show was the one I was thinking about. His recent turns have been ridiculous!

          • The Breaker

            He has to hold the record for the amount of turns in a single career. Kane has the same problem too. We’ll never know why he joined The Authority.

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

            But he does look yummy in those suits!

          • Xavier

            Lol I pretty much said the same thing. Get out of my head bro lol

          • opie

            Just as an excuse to get the mask off without putting in the effort of writing a mid-card storyline.

          • Xavier

            Big Show & Kane switch between Hell/Face more then Jennifer Lopez switches husbands

          • Xavier

            Fair enough. I enjoy him either way and it was refreshing to see a heel who didn’t follow that typical “chicken s***” format that most heels followed. Even in his feud with Cena he went toe to toe with him, he was booked really strong in that feud as well as his feud with Triple H. Most guys don’t deserve most the crap that the IWC gives them IMHO

          • The Breaker

            Sheamus has been booked better than most. Just shows that WWE can make a star when they really put their minds to it. Sometimes I think certain fans in the IWC enjoy complaining more than giving the product a fair shot. They won’t let themselves be entertained.

          • Xavier

            Very true. However they do have a legit grap about the booking of Daniel Bryan. i just feel that they are going about it the wrong way.

          • The Breaker

            Definitely. I understand that they wanted to hold him down so that the fans would react even louder in support of him, but now is a better time than ever to put him on top.

    • David Jr.

      He also has a unique look.

      • Xavier

        Very true

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

        Beaker!

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Ryback / Sheamus was surprising. Wasn’t great but I liked it lol.

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

    I’m looking forward to Betty White on Raw Monday. it should be fun.

    • Xavier

      She’s the greatest. I really wish Mae was still with us. imagine them two in a segment together. That would of been greatness x billion

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

        it would have broken TV’s formt he awesomeness.

        • Xavier

          Yessir

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

        Sam actually said, when I was telling her about Mae Young, “So she’s the Betty White of wrestling?”

        • Xavier

          Very good comparison

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

            Even more so when you think about this. Mae started her Pro Wrestling Career in 1939. Betty started her Acting Career in what Year? You guessed it 1939.

          • Ashley

            That’s a little eerie

          • Xavier

            Lol very eerie

          • Xavier

            It’s amazing that Betty is showing no signs of slowing down. She’s still funnier then 90% of hollywood.

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

            I will tell her that! Thank you!

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

            She’s a smart kid who is becoming a true wrestling fan.

  • Eddie Edwards

    That was actually a pretty good match between Sheamus and Ryback

    • Xavier

      Agreed

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

    The Radio Shack Commercial was entertaining.

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

    And then he’s going to serve batista to Al Snow.

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

    The internet exploded like Randy marsh

  • David Jr.

    So what are the odds, these 2 start the Elimination Chamber match?

  • Xavier

    What’s the Smackdown record?

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

      For comments? Give me a moment.

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

      334 I believe from 2 weeks ago.

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

      I was close. its 331 from the final Smackdown before Royal Rumble.

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

      Joshua is right, 331. My computer was moving slowly. I’ve kept track of them since August.

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

        I remember we set it 2 weeks ago when we broke both Raw and Smackdown’s records in a week’s time.

        • Xavier

          Yeah that was insane. He got over 1500 on RAW. It’s gonna be tough to beat that. It’s gonna take a Bryan title win or a Cena heel turn to break that lol

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

            I’m calling for it to be broken going toward WM, and possibly the night after WM. Jesse and I have talked about this, but the numbers are still bigger than we expected.

          • Xavier

            Gonna be a lot of reloading lap tops that night lol

          • Jimmy

            I think the post WM Raw will be the one.

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

    That Uppercut was an amazing counter.

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

    Daniel Bryan has seen the 100 Spin in person and wanted nothing to do with that.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Bryan just did a modified La Mistica!

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

    Fantastic match between Cesaro and Bryan.

  • The Breaker

    The transition into the YES Lock was beautiful.

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

    Push for Cesaro?

    • Xavier

      One can only hope. Cesaro/Cena & Cesaro/Bryan are feuds I’d love too see

  • Xavier

    Match wasn’t as good as I hoped but they didn’t have a whole lot of time to work though.

  • Ashley

    DB is just amazing. Could watch his matches all night

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

    You guys are getting me very excited for the DB/Ces match!

    • The Breaker

      Great match, but not as good as Bryan/Orton from Monday Night RAW, mostly owing to the fact that they didn’t get as much time.

      • Xavier

        That was my beef with tonight’s match

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

        That was a lovely match on Monday. They work so wonderfully together.

        • The Breaker

          Their chemistry is just as good as what you get out of Cena and Punk, in my opinion.

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

            I think that Bry and Orty bring the best out of each other in the ring. I’m not usually a big Orty fan, but with Bry, I will always watch.

          • The Breaker

            Orton is so much better when he’s out of his comfort zone.

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

            Exactly! He has to be more creative in the ring with Bry, so his work is so much stronger.

          • The Breaker

            For some reason very few people challenge him in that way. I’m looking forward to his match with Christian tonight. They’ve had very good matches together in the past.

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

            They have, but CC seems quite off since he returned this time.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah he has. Is it that he’s not 100%, or is he still working off ring rust?

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

            I’m wondering myself. It’s just been quite obvious that he isn’t quite up to par.

          • Jimmy

            Orton works best with workers who are more indy, other computerized workers like Cena make him come off as computerized as well. That’s why you need one of each like Cena/Punk or DBry/Orton to pull off a great match.

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

    AJ time.

  • Xavier

    Ernie was about as big as Andre. Crazy

  • Xavier

    I’m not feeling this Alexander dude or however it’s spelled. This screams of Kozlov 2.0

    • David Jr.

      I just want him to feud with Xavier Woods, And see Woods come out to Living in America.

      • Xavier

        LMAO you a fool.

        • David Jr.

          Rocky IV is the most awesome bad movie ever.

          • Xavier

            I liked it but I hated that Apollo died. I really enjoyed the hell out Rocky 3. I can’t get enough of Mr. T lol

          • David Jr.

            Yeah but Rocky 4 ended the Cold War.

          • Xavier

            LMFAO, I literally laughed out loud at that

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

            if I can change, and you can change, everybody can change.

          • The Breaker

            “If he dies, he dies.”

            -Ivan Drago. One of the best lines in movie history!

          • David Jr.

            Rocky IV has some great movie lines.
            “Whatever he hits, He destroys”

          • Xavier

            Lol

          • David Jr.

            Only on Smackdown can we discuss how Rocky IV changed the world.

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

            I read that aloud, and now two of my kids are discussing Rocky.

          • David Jr.

            That’s awesome.

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

            Ellie’s boyfriend believes if you start a series, you finish it. So he’s not watching any of TNG until they finish the original Star Trek. But they watched the Rocky movies over the past couple weeks, and so she’s been filling me in. And when Tim saw them, I don’t know, but they were discussing the movies. I guess I have to see them at some point.

          • David Jr.

            They are some of the most quotable movies ever. Plus Eye of the Tiger is the greatest workout song ever. Hell, the first Rocky won the Academy Award for Best Picture.

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

            Eye of the Tiger is a fave of mine, even not working out. Though I think I will have to put together a workout mix starting with that.

          • David Jr.

            You could be extremely tired, and then hear Eye of the Tiger, and you’re ready to run a marathon.

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

            Well, most people could. Not so sure I could.

          • The Breaker

            Still better than Rocky V, lol. I enjoy the first one the most though.

          • David Jr.

            The first one is probably the best but the 3rd or 4th are the most enjoyable to me. The fifth, well I think most people probably just forget about the fifth one. Though I do love the scene where he’s thinking of Mickey and Mickey says, “Get up you Son of a Bitch, Cause Mickey loves you.”

          • The Breaker

            Heh yeah. As X said, Mr. T was awesome in III as Clubber Lang. The second one was good too but felt too similar to the first one to be memorable.

          • David Jr.

            Rocky III was also Hulk Hogan’s greatest role.

          • The Breaker

            So true! Thunderlips!

          • David Jr.

            And that was before Hulkamania ever started.

    • Brandon Ceielo

      Reminds me of Boris Alexiev too.

  • The Breaker

    Rusev has some impressive qualities to him, but for some reason I’m not really into him. Perhaps it’s his gimmick. I generally don’t like the “I don’t speak English so please boo me” heels. Hopefully he does better than Bo Dallas did with his run around the same time last year.

    • Xavier

      Agreed. That gimmick seemed better suited for the 80s

      • BIG M

        Sadly WWE has to give him that 80′s foreign threat gimmick left over from the cold war to get him over as a heel.
        For some bizzare reason non American or non Canadian workers have a hard time getting over in WWE.
        The first non American or non Canadian worker to get over in a BIG way that I can remember is Sheamus.
        And he had to go through the same evil foreigner gimmick.
        And to get over as a face he has to play up old Irish stereotypes.

        • JR Texx (Jamie)

          Wade Barret, William Regal.

          • Jimmy

            They were never as over as Sheamus in his prime.

          • JR Texx (Jamie)

            You never said how over..

          • Jimmy

            “The first non American or non Canadian worker to get over in a BIG way that I can remember is Sheamus” as stated by BIG M above, and supposedly i’m the one the doesn’t read before commenting lol

      • Jimmy

        I’d say Umaga was my favorite of those gimmicks, all the others i never liked.

  • Xavier

    I actually thought Titus’ heel turn came off well last week

    • The Breaker

      It was totally out-of-the-blue, but I see why they did it. Needed to happen. And his beatdown Darren looked okay.

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

        And Young bleeding through it all added a lot, but it was out of the blue.

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

    I like Rusev’s abilities in the ring. Not sure on his ceiling though.

    • Jimmy

      Has some nice in-ring talent, not so sure about the look, gimmick or mic work though.

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

    Road Dogg was off or something bad on monday. That was bad.

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

      I was cussing in shock before Cody jumped, then cussing at RD after he landed.

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

        It wasn’t just the Moonsault. Something just did not seem right in the entire match with him.

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

          He did seem quite off through it all.

    • Ashley

      I thought the same thing, He seemed off from the moment they walked down the ramp

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

    I think that was a plot device to a cody Heel turn.

  • Xavier

    My freaking laptop is acting stupid and it’s too hard too keep up on the phone so you guys enjoy the rest of Smackdown. Have a blessed evening everyone

    • Ashley

      Good night!

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

      Night X, you’re always a pleasure to hang out with.

    • The Breaker

      Take care, Xavier.

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

    I like Cody rushing in to protect his brother like that would really save Goldust if they wanted to do something to him.

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

    I am going to miss this when they end the shield.

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

      I think that they’re a team that will come back together at some point. I just get an nWo/DX longevity feeling about them.

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

        Probably but Will they use the Handheld camera promo? That’s the thing I was talking about.

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

          I would think so. They brought back the best quirky things about the other teams.

  • David Jr.

    I want an in ring segment with the Shield and Wyatt Family.

    • The Breaker

      I couldn’t see them talking calmly. It’d turn into a brawl in no time!

  • David Jr.

    Is Randy Orton vs. Christian 2011 feud, an underrated feud?

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

      Not to me. but I discount it due to the title change that changed not by Pinfall or Submission but by DQ.

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

        I’m with Joshua on that. And as I said, not an Orty fan usually.

    • The Breaker

      I don’t think so. It was a very good string of matches, but I wasn’t wanting more after it all ended.

      • David Jr.

        I wasn’t saying it was, but I’ve heard people say it was. So curious what everybody on here thought.

  • Ashley

    I think Randy was a bit enthusiastic with the baby oil on his legs tonight, lol

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

      When isn’t he?

      • Ashley

        Not normally this bad. His legs are very very shiney!

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

          Just compared to many, he seems to like his baby oil.

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

    One More Match.

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

    I love that dropkick by Orton.

    • David Jr.

      Best Dropkick in WWE History? Randy Orton? Billy Gunn? Hardcore Holly? Someone Else?

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

        I’ll say Orton. There have been a lot of great ones though.

      • opie

        Jeff Jarrett’s is definitely up there.

      • Jimmy

        Hardcore Holly has a very underrated dropkick, no one really appreciates just how well he does it.

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

    Why has Christian adopted the frog splash. that makes no sense to me.

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

      He’s done that for a while.

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

        I hadn’t seen it until recently.

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

    Ho-Hum match

    • The Breaker

      It was fine. Kind of annoyed that they did the mid-air RKO spot again.

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

        I agree it was an okay match. Ho-Hum. Nothing special.
        Well it had been a while since Orton did it to anyone.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    I know this is nitpicky, but I HATE that Orton positions people into the ropes like that for his DDT. Find better ways to catch them!
    Also same ending as two other matches they had.

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

    It’s been another fun Smackdown Watch Party. :D

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

    Didn’t break a record, but a solid showing. Thanks to everyone who joined us tonight, and thanks for being understanding that I wasn’t actually watching with you.

    • The Breaker

      No problem Kendra. It was still a good time. Night!

  • David Jr.

    Good Night Everyone.

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

      Night David.

      • David Jr.

        Good Night Kendra.

  • ldb

    I think Ryback is trying to earn a top spot back. Feels like he is letting loose and doing much better work in the ring.
