Big Show to the ring, smiling. They shake and Miz talks about Big Show going after Brock, tossing him like a rag doll. Big Show says there’s only so much a man can take. Heyman talks smack, then Brock breaks Henry’s arm, that was enough. Big Show says he doesn’t like Brock, didn’t like him before, happy when he left, hates him more now. Everyone’s afraid to confront Brock because they end up like Henry. Brock doesn’t seem like the baddest man on the planet to Big Show any longer. Big Show challenges Brock to a fight.

Heyman out to canned heat. Heyman hypes a match, but then says Big Show doesn’t get to face Brock when Big Show wants, but when Heyman wants. It will happen at the Royal Rumble. If Big Show wants to pick a fight with Brock before that, Brock won’t be hard to find.

    We ready for some Smackdown to make up for some Impact?

    • David Jr.

      Watching paint dry would be better than Impact’s ending.

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

        I was feeling downright miserable at the time, so I wasn’t watching closely, but from what I did see, I never want to watch it again. Impact has already been removed from my DVR.

        • David Jr.

          Could the Impact ending be their Finger Poke of Doom?

    • The Breaker

      Heck yes! Oh and you used the refresh reminder for RAW coverage.

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

        Thanks! On it! Not used to doing SD, and I cut and paste for Raw, so I missed it.

        • David Jr.

          So you’re doing the Smackdown play by play tonight?

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

            Just covering for the night, writing the basics, but hanging out too.

        • The Breaker

          So I guess you won’t be able to chat as much tonight since you’re in charge of covering it?

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

            I’m only writing the basics tonight, not like I write for Raw. Richard asked me to open it up, but I can’t not write the basics. So I’ll be here hanging mostly.

          • The Breaker

            Okay cool!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Definitely.

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

    Here we go!

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

    I like that slight nWo feel that The Wyatt Family has in their videos, and how they cut in.

    • David Jr.

      Wyatt Family are becoming some of my favorite things to watch each week.

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

        Bray might not have the best ring work, but his character is his money. So different from Husky who had no personality.

        • David Jr.

          I would watch a tv show or a movie with a character like Bray Wyatt in it and enjoy it.

          • Nostaljack

            AMEN!

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

            I would too, whether I wanted to or not, Sam loves the character!

  • The Breaker

    I think that Bryan should’ve had more of a transformation in his character. How can he be the same old Bryan yet join a cult like the Family? Not that I’m for Bryan being a heel at all…

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

      I agree completely. I think it was a bad time, not enough of a change, not enough creative behind it, and no real direction for it.

      • David Jr.

        If you’re going to turn the most over guy on your roster heel it should be a big deal.

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

          Punk managed it because of what he did, and aligning with Heyman. Even though The Wyatt Family are heels, the fans still have a liking for them. Heyman is respected by many, but such a heel that you have to hate his character.

          • David Jr.

            I think Punk is a more natural heel. I’m not sure about Bryan, his heel character when he was the World Champion was great, but I still think he’s more suited as a face.

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

            I will agree, just saying that Punk was over like Rover, but had better abilities and people around him to turn heel.

          • David Jr.

            I agree turning heel on the Rock and aligning with Paul Heyman were better in helping get him over as a heel.

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

            Proof that hyp’ great, but can’t help everyone!

      • The Breaker

        And they could’ve kept Bryan off TV for a week or two to sell everything he’s going through.

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

          Too close to RR, and starting down the road, so I’m not sure it would have worked well.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah. The timing wasn’t good at all for this kind of thing.

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

            Not at all.

  • Nostaljack

    Hey, kids! I’m off again tonight. I could get used to this…LOL!

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

      Great! Love to see you here!

      • Nostaljack

        Why thank you, our queenness…

  • Brandon Ceielo

    I like the Usos but haven’t seen much of Wyatt Family yet. Kind of surprised that Bryan is with them. Wishing I had Internet on my computer. Using iPod Touch makes me type slowww.

  • Nostaljack

    So who’s getting the network?

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

      I will most likely be doing it. I want to see, and with the PPVs!

    • The Breaker

      I plan on having the subscription for as long as it costs $9.99/month for all the content they promised. I have a feeling that sometime down the road they may raise the pricing though, once they have a good handle on how many subscribers they think they can maintain.

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

        I agree on that, and will most likely be starting, but who knows what I can afford.

        • Nostaljack

          I’m on it all day long! I can’t wait!

    • David Jr.

      I’m considering it.

    • Brandon Ceielo

      I’m getting it once I start working again. Had a bad setback the past month and a half.

  • Nostaljack

    Erick is doing Khali’s old finisher?

  • Nostaljack

    Very well-worked match!

  • The Breaker

    Double count out. Haven’t seen that in a while. Maybe the Usos should’ve pulled one out though, to make them look strong for Monday.

  • David Jr.

    I agree with Randy Orton.

  • Nostaljack

    OH, YOU DIDN”T KNOW???

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

      So excited, I love NAO!

  • The Breaker

    Punk & The NAO vs. The Shield? Nice!

  • Brandon Ceielo

    New Age Outlaws and Punk vs The Shield!! Believe in The Shield!
    Also is something going on with The Miz? Haven’t seen him wrestle in a long while.

    • The Breaker

      I haven’t missed Miz at all.

      • Nostaljack

        I’d miss him if they’d book him better.

        • The Breaker

          I didn’t care too much for his work when he was booked at the top either.

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

            I think Miz is a cute boy, but he’s never been a great in my eyes.

          • The Breaker

            I’ve heard he has a great work ethic but as a wrestler he just hasn’t impressed me. It’s not only that he doesn’t have the look, there’s something else missing. And he also has a long way to go in the ring, which I feel you shouldn’t have to say about someone who has been at it as long as he has.

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

            Honestly, I still have troubles getting past the videos my daughter Ellie showed me about when she watched him on Real World. I give him props for his hard work, but something about him comes across as really plastic.

          • The Breaker

            Doesn’t he carry over a lot of his character from the reality show? I guess that’s where he learned to “act” and hasn’t picked up any new tricks since! No wonder it’s never really worked for him in WWE!

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

            But I will give him props for all the work he’s put in. He’s dedicated, if quite clueless.

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

    Interesting to note, People.com had an article up about Mae Young’s health today. The talked about wrestlers tweeting about her life, and they quoted Dixie and Samoa Joe.

    I will admit that I almost had a fit, but then realized that the writer of the article doesn’t have a clue about the industry, and those who care will come here for their wrestling news!

    • The Breaker

      They referred to Dixie as a wrestler? Why do some journalists even bother if they’re too lazy to do research?

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

        I think they called her a promoter or something, hang on…

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

          “”A true trailblazer in our industry,” Tweeted wrestling promoter Dixie Carter. “She paved the way for every woman in the pro wrestling business.” “

          • The Breaker

            She hasn’t promoted anything having to do with wrestling for a day in her life!

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

            It’s obvious that the person who wrote the article doesn’t have a clue about the industry, and couldn’t be bothered to spend the two minutes it would have taken to look up the WWE.

          • The Breaker

            Obviously. But like you said, anyone who has followed wrestling wouldn’t be looking to People for news on Mae’s health.

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

            Exactly, and I have to admit that I was shocked to see it there in the first place. They rarely touch the wrestling industry, other than Hogan’s sex tape.

          • The Breaker

            Wrestling really only makes the mainstream when a performer dies or there is some kind of controversy.

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

            Sadly true, gone are the days of MTV and WM hand in hand. Then again, gone are the days of MTV the way it was from the start, when I was a kid.

          • The Breaker

            MTV traded music for “reality” programming similarly to how pro wrestling has traded kayfabe for “reality”.

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

            It’s cheaper to make that way.

          • The Breaker

            I guess they really don’t care about the quality of what they’re putting out as long as they can still make money off of it.

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

            The bottom line is the point these days.

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Recap about Batista winning the WHC from Booker.

  • Nostaljack

    There’s your Miz….LOL!

  • David Jr.

    Big Show vs. Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble with the winner getting a spot in the Rumble match, oh wait this isn’t 2003.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    What happened with Heyman teaming with The Ryback and Axel?

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

      They have let that quietly end. I think CrybAxel talked a little smack about Heyman, heyman dumped them, and it’s over.

  • David Jr.

    Brock Lesnar won’t be a hard man to find if you’re looking for him on Monday between 8 – 11.

    • 1molly23

      That’s true, must be the day Lesnar gets his check

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff: Brie and Nikki being horrible actresses talking about Daniel being a Wyatt now. Surely, you can imagine how that went. Recap unnecessary…LOL!

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      Do you think this is the Wyatts plan? so they can go to hit weddings

  • The Breaker

    I hope Batista doesn’t win the Rumble. He doesn’t deserve it!

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

      I completely agree, and sadly Batista won’t have been around long enough for the fans to sour on him before the Rumble.

      • David Jr.

        He’ll be 45 when he comes back, 30th Wrestlemania should be used to set up the future of the company not relish on someone from the past that wasn’t as big as they are making him out ot be.

        • Nostaljack

          Goldust isn’t young either and he’s phenomenal.

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

            But Goldy has had the skills all along, and hasn’t been a whiny, bitchy divas most of his career. Goldy has never pissed off Booker enough by making nasty comments about Sharmell screwing around in WCW to get his ass handed to him backstage.

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

          I agree, completely. Mayo and I are working on an article for WWENews.net about this. A pros and cons of Batista and his return. I’m on the cons side.

        • The Breaker

          WrestleMania XXX is a milestone and I think it should be nostalgic. Bring in the older guys while you still can and use them to help draw attention to the younger stars.

          • David Jr.

            I have no problem with using older guys, but I don’t think the older guys should be fighting for the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania.

          • The Breaker

            I agree. The older guys will be a huge draw no matter where they are in the card. Give the top billing to the ones who have been working hard all year for it.

      • The Breaker

        He’ll definitely get a huge pop initially but I’m not sure how long it’ll last. People grew tired of him before and now probably won’t be any different.

  • Nostaljack

    ARN!

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

      That’s supposed to be my line! I love me some sexy Arn!

      • Nostaljack

        No, the next line is “GENE!” Jesse always follows with that. It’s in response to “Ole’” for Los Matadores. Arn is and always will be the coolest Anderson that’s ever been.

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

          Did you see what I wrote in the RIB about Arn? And the guy I was following around Sam’s Club because he looked just like Arn? Stacy thought I lost my mind.

          • Nostaljack

            LOL! I did see it. Perhaps we should call you Kendra Hinckley, Jr.? LOL!!

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

            But I’m harmless!

          • Nostaljack

            LOL! Oh, I know that… ;)

        • David Jr.

          KEN!

          • Nostaljack

            LOL!!! MIISTTTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA…….

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Holy crap!! Rey is back!

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

      He’s been back for a couple weeks.

      • Brandon Ceielo

        Oh lol. I haven’t been able to watch much of anything for almost two months. I still feel a bit foreign with wrestling stuff.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Would be awesome if they had a We the people vs OLE! Chant.

  • The Breaker

    I love Cesaro but he’s being held back as a part of this team. If he doesn’t break out on his own soon it might take a hit on his popularity.

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

      Cesaro deserves better than Swags.

      • The Breaker

        Just team Ryback with Swagger. They’re perfect for each other because they have so much in common!

        • Nostaljack

          Both Thwagger and Rybread have moved heaven and earth to end their own careers. You’re right – they’re perfect for each other.

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

          I feel an article in that, but I’m not sure I should use all the words I’d want to use.

          • Nostaljack

            It does look appetizing, doesn’t it?

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

            It really does.

          • Nostaljack

            If I wrote it, it would bring out that side of me the side of me that people decided they didn’t like…LOL!

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

            I already have a lot of readers who feel that way about me.

          • Nostaljack

            You and me both. I pay little mind to it because the truth is the truth. Still, I try to play nice whenever possible. With an article like this, I wouldn’t be able to. I’d totally have to give in to my darker side…and I’d have a blast doing it…LOL!

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

            I automatically don’t know anything about the industry because I’m female. Ten years doing this and I’m still getting those comments.

          • Nostaljack

            Chauvinism is so attractive, isn’t it? LOL!

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

            It is, and the people who make the comments are the ones I can talk circles around. I have to not let them bother me.

          • The Breaker

            YES! Bring out the same kind of fury that AJ showed last night in his promo!

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

            I’m going to be doing that with the cons side of the Batista article.

  • Nostaljack

    Poor Ryback. Body by Gold’s; Brains by Hasbro.

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

      Richard wouldn’t be happy, but that would be a great title to an article…

      • Nostaljack

        I think Richard would secretly *love* it! He just couldn’t *show* that he loved it…LOL!

    • 1molly23

      That’s even better than JBL’s line – million dollar body one cent brain.

  • Nostaljack

    BTW, was Ziggly-puffs concussion Rybread’s fault or Ziggs?

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

      I haven’t seen the tape, but I’m going with Ryback’s fault until I see differently. Ryback is known for being reckless, and Ziggy’s other concussion was due to reckless work by Swags, not Ziggy’s fault.

      • Nostaljack

        Just wondering if anyone saw it. I’m withholding judgment until I actually see it.

        • The Breaker

          I was there live for the match and it was hard to tell from where I was sitting. It looked like a really stiff clothesline and when Ziggler hit the mat he immediately went to the outside and stayed there for quite a while.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I saw the tape, and it was clearly Ryback’s fault, it was excessively stiff and hit a bit high.

          • Nostaljack

            Thanks, Jesse. Not surprised at all!

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

            Neither am I.

    • The Breaker

      I’m not sure but with Ryback’s track record I don’t think it’s any coincidence that someone got concussed when working with him.

  • Nostaljack

    The nadir of Curtis McGillicutty’s career: El Dorito dives on him and he falls.

  • Nostaljack

    …and your winners: Los Midcardadores, Rey Myserio, and Hunicara!

  • Nostaljack

    I’m speechless… App update. Big E.: “I’m about the face the champion of champions! If I win, everyone gets free pot pie! Tonight, everyone eats on Big E!” He said it all with a totally straight face. Oh my…

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

      That’s hysterical! I love that man, and see great things in his future.

      • Nostaljack

        I’m convinced Big E. is clinically insane. He’s gotta bring that out in front of an audience and then he’s gold.

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

          Have you seen his My Little Pony video clip? That’s when I really fell in love with him.

          • Nostaljack

            No. Gotta go find it! I’m sure it’s high-larious!

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

            It was at a signing, maybe WM, and a fan gave him a personalized MLP. AJ was upset that she didn’t get one, so E taunted her with it. He was giddy to get such a gift from a fan, but how he handled it showed what a wonderful personality he has, even though he was supposed to be face at that point.

          • Nostaljack

            LOL!! That sounds amazing. Maybe it’s on YouTube.

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

            Be shocked if it isn’t. It was because he was so obviously being himself, and so endearing that I fell in love with the guy behind the muscles.

          • The Breaker
          • Nostaljack

            COOL! I’m on it…

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

            Thanks!

          • Nostaljack

            Just watched it. AJ and Big E. are hilarious!!

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

            I love that video, they’re so cute, and it’s obviously that E was himself.

    • The Breaker

      He’s got a natural sense of humor. If WWE just lets him be himself then he’ll end up being very popular.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Arr. WWE / WHC Randy Orton isn’t main eventing. The six man tag better be awesome.

  • David Jr.

    Some think Batista might win the Rumble, well at 45 he’d be the 2nd oldest Rumble winner.
    The ages of each winner:
    Duggan -34
    John Studd – 40
    Hulk Hogan – 36 and 37
    Ric Flair – 42
    Yokozuna – 26

    John Cena – 30 and 35
    Randy Orton – 28
    Edge – 36
    Del Rio – 33
    Sheamus – 34.

  • Nostaljack

    Great match. Big E. has *nothing* to be ashamed of with that one.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    “How do you call it? Vintage Orton!”
    “I used that earlier.”
    “I used it better.”
    JBL and Cole lol. Was an ok match. Now I want to see more Big E. Is AJ with anyone now?

    • Nostaljack

      JBL and Cole were even funnier on the App. LOL!

  • The Breaker

    It says a lot about the opinion of TPTB on Big E that they wouldn’t let Orton go over him without putting his thumb in E’s eye!

  • David Jr.

    I know they won’t but I’d love if Gunn and James came out seperately just so we can here Billy Gunn’s Ass Man theme.

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

      I was watching a WWE DVD the other day and Sam looked at Gunn and asked if it was Ziggy.

      • David Jr.

        To me he’s a hybrid of Billy Gunn and Mr. Perfect.

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

          I agree. I was interested in her reaction though. She was confused about what Ziggy was doing with that other guy. It was very cute.

      • The Breaker

        Well Ziggler does do the Fame-Asser!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well I’m an A** Man! “Whean Whean!”

      • David Jr.

        Yes I’m an @$$ Man, Yeah.

  • Nostaljack

    Bray. Is. Brilliant!

  • The Breaker

    Bryan’s acting like Bray Wyatt! Interesting…

    • Nostaljack

      …and doing it WELL!

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

        He really was fantastic there.

        • Nostaljack

          He really was. He was beginning to hit the wall promo-wise until this. I think this needed to happen.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    That sound at the beginning and the sound at the end of The Wyatt Family stuff are awesome.

    • Nostaljack

      DEP!

  • Nostaljack

    App stuff. Xavier cutting a promo. He’s doing it way too fast and I can’t possibly cover it. You should be watching it. He’s incredibly funny! LOL!!

    • Brandon Ceielo

      Do they ever post that stuff on YouTube? I don’t have a good Internet plan atm.

      • Nostaljack

        I honestly don’t know. I’m sorry you can’t see it. I always log on to the app when I’m watching Raw or Smackdown and I’m always rewarded when I do it.

  • The Breaker

    There’s a tax service commercial and “Flight of the Valkyries” played during it! Pretty funny timing as I looked over expecting SD to be back on! But I suppose we probably won’t be hearing that theme for a while…

  • Nostaljack

    Why did they saddle Xavier with this music? Give him something new!

    • The Breaker

      I guess it’s to advance his feud with Brodus, and they want to keep the Funkadactyls involved.

      • Nostaljack

        Maybe they could have given it a remix that is just his. That way, they can sell more music.

  • Nostaljack

    I also feel the need to say that I’m so glad Xavier (formerly Consequences) jumped form the Titanic Nonstop Action ship.

    • Brandon Ceielo

      I was about to post the same thing. I liked him in TNA and thought he wouldn’t be looked at by WWE. Happy to be wrong.

      • Nostaljack

        Me neither. I really thought he’d sink in WWE. Glad we were both wrong. He’s a good guy and an excellent worker.

        • David Jr.

          He never really made a name for himself in TNA, so he didn’t have to be humbled like most TNA guys.

  • The Breaker

    The Usos are actually talking on TV? They came off decently here and should be allowed to do it more.

    • Brandon Ceielo

      I like The Usos and I think having them talk would make more people care about them. Let them be themselves too.

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

        I agree, and they have the genetics to be stars, and should be solid talkers as well. Rikishi might not have had some of the best mic work, but he has a great voice and wonderful charisma.

        • The Breaker

          Their cousin Roman has been solid with the little mic time he’s gotten!

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

            Can’t say much about the Wild Samoans on mic, or Umaga, or even Manu, but you’re right, there’s Reigns, and Rocky.

  • Nostaljack

    Jimmy Uso clearly doesn’t cut enough promos. If he did, he would have been better. it wasn’t awful but it was pretty stale.

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

      I thought it was decent since he never does it. Given more promos, he’ll be great.

      • Nostaljack

        Totally agreed.

  • Nostaljack

    NAO is on the app!

  • Nostaljack

    Ambrose is holding a belt. Which one is it? TV title?

    • Brandon Ceielo

      US Championship.

      • Nostaljack

        I was being snarky, Brandon….LOL!! He never defends the thing so it’s hard to care.

        • Brandon Ceielo

          Ah lol. They should just merge it with the IC Title and make people fight for them. Actually fight for the chance at it like they really want it. Not just someone that’s in a program with the champ either. Was awesome when all the titles were (coveted?) badly wanted and fought for. Made it seem more legit.

          • Nostaljack

            If they do a Unification thing, they’ll be accused of ripping of TNA.

    • David Jr.

      I think it’s just to hold up his pants.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    All I saw from Old School Raw was Punk vs Reigns and Jake walking out looking awesome made me tear up a bit. Proud of The Snake’s progress. Like I said elsewhere, DDP is a freakin’ genius.

    • The Breaker

      If they choose to bring in Jake Roberts for the HoF then DDP should be the one to induct him.

  • Nostaljack

    Reigns is cutting a promo by himself!

  • The Breaker

    I can’t buy into Ambrose being upset about the snake because we all saw him crack a smile when Jake did it to him on Monday!

  • Nostaljack

    Nice promo work from all three!

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

      That was solid, except Ashlyn was sitting here yelling about animal abuse at Ambrose.

      • Nostaljack

        Of course….LOL!!!

      • David Jr.

        Who’s Ashlyn?

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

          Sorry, she’s the newest kid in the house. We took her in a couple months ago, and she’s really started watching with me lately. She loves Punk.

          • David Jr.

            That’s great.

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

            She’s a great girl. She and Jesse have become good friends recently, and they’re really funny worrying about each other.

          • David Jr.

            Is Jesse another kid in your house or Sherwood?

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

            Sherwood. We have Ellie, she’s out on her own. Tim, flunking out of college. Max, moved out to prove he’s an adult, ie can smoke week when he wants without us telling him he really needs to graduate from high school. Ashlyn, our newest. Sam, our little one.

            So the girls are doing well, the boys not so much right now. It’s always ups and downs.

          • Nostaljack

            She has good taste.

  • Nostaljack

    YOU BETTA CALL SOMEBODYYYYYYYY!!

  • David Jr.

    He doesn’t have a WWE body and I don’t know where he ranks in wrestling skills but Road Dogg has got to have a top 5 greatest voice in WWE history.

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

      Bray’s money is his character, not his ring work.

      Gunn’s money is his voice, not his ring work.

      • David Jr.

        Gunn? I think you mean James. But I’d love if they would put Road Dogg at the Announce Table.

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

          Yeah, just saw what I did there. Doing too many things at once, and now have a teenager screaming that Punk is on. My ears!

          • Brandon Ceielo

            All that and you’re still here chatting. +Respect

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

            She’s a good kid, but loves Punk. She was all worried that Punk lost that match.

        • Nostaljack

          Gunn was just as bad as Cute Kip in TNA.

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

            Stacy first saw him as Cute Kip and didn’t understand why I was so mortified by it all. He now gets it.

          • David Jr.

            To me, he will always be Bob.

    • The Breaker

      I’d say Macho is at the top of that list.

    • ron

      Road Dogg is the son of Bob Armstrong from the mid-south territory days. he has been a pro since he graduated High School. Probably more ring experience then anyone else in WWE. So yes his wrestling skills are B+

  • Brandon Ceielo

    It’s clobbering time!! All six guys I actually like. Hopefully The Shield don’t break up too soon.

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

    Bummed that we didn’t get Dogg on mic, but it was nice to hear Reigns being so solid and starting the segment.

    • Nostaljack

      We did…on the APP

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

        I’ll have to go back and watch it later.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Gunn looks better than when he was in TNA. I think.

  • Nostaljack

    “You’ve Still Got It” chants to NAO on App

  • Nostaljack

    Road Dogg really does still have it.

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

      He’s looking quite solid out there.

  • Nostaljack

    Ambrose is beautifully off-balance.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Is Scott Armstrong banned from officiating a Road Dogg match because it would be a conflict of interest?

  • David Jr.

    I do find it kind of funny that Punk would team with the Outlaws since storyline, he’s against the Authority and Triple H and Outlaws were both in DX.

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

      But Trip is the one who’s chanted, not the NAO.

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

        Changed!

      • David Jr.

        I know, it’s just kind of funny.

    • The Breaker

      Continuity only matters in WWE when they want it to.

      And yeah, as the others are saying, the association with Trip doesn’t mean that anyone who was a part of DX is working for The Authority. Two separate groups.

    • Brandon Ceielo

      But the outlaws are against authority. Being friends with Hunter is just incidental.

  • Nostaljack

    Reigns is on the elevator going up.

    • David Jr.

      And it’s not going to stop until it reaches the top.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Ok that was a fun night of wrestling. Especially compared to last night. Now to wait for RAW.
    I’m going to let the dogs out. I’ll talk to you guys Monday. Good night everyone!

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

      Night! Thanks for joining us!

      • Brandon Ceielo

        Np. Thanks for having me. [:

        • Nostaljack

          Night, Brandon!

          • Brandon Ceielo

            Gn. Hope you have a good one.

  • Nostaljack

    Alright, kids, I’m off to my second gig. It was the most…to say the least. Sleep tight, fellow marks!

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

      Night! I expect to see an evil article soon!

  • David Jr.

    Smackdown’s ending, not as good as Raw’s (Jake’s return would have been hard to beat) but better than Impact’s (but anything could have beaten that ending).

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

      I completely agree on both points.

      • David Jr.

        My twin enjoyed the ending of Raw better than me, though because Jake the Snake was his favorite when he was little.

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

          I can understand that. Jake looked fantastic! Better than he’s looked in years, so a true fan from young had to love that.

          • David Jr.

            Imagine what wrestling would be without Jake Roberts. The DDT has become such an important move in wrestling.

  • King A sshole

    I know that kid was just trying to get on tv, but that ending with Roman standing next to the toy championship, felt like a things to come moment.

  • JR Texx (Jamie)

    NAO (part of DX) and CM Punk.. this seems interesting..
