  • Xavier

    Anyone here tonight?

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’m here.

      • Xavier

        Here’s to hoping that Smackdown is better then the MLB playoffs games so far. Nothing but blow outs so far smh.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I don’t watch Baseball, but I do hope Smackdown is good, or at least better than Raw.

        • David Jr.

          I’m here, but that’s only because the Tigers/A’s game is the late game.

          • Xavier

            What’s good bro. This Braves/Dodgers game is actually quite good though. I’ll be switching back & forth lol.

          • David Jr.

            If you can tell by my pic. I’m a Tiger’s fan.

          • Xavier

            I could tell lol

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

    Sorry I’m late! Was trying to get ready, then realized I was a half hour behind schedule!

    • David Jr.

      feeling better?

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

        Somewhat. Not perfect, but at least I’m vertical.

        Thanks for asking, I appreciate it.

        • David Jr.

          Smackdown Watch Party wouldn’t be as as enjoyable without you.

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

            Thanks! That means so much. I’ve really come to enjoy these parties, and look forward to them. SD is quieter than most, but I think that’s what I love about it.

          • David Jr.

            Yeah when Raw gets alot of comments, I have a hard time commenting sometimes.

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

            I miss RAW because of the Live Results, but the one night that I wasn’t able to write them, I had a blast in the discussion!

          • David Jr.

            Raw’s are fun, it’s just sometimes harder to comment.

    • Xavier

      Was wondering if you were gonna show up tonight lol.

  • Xavier

    I think Big Show is definitely turning hell soon. He’s the king of heel turns. Since he came into the WWE in 99 he’s turned face/heel at least 14 or 15 times. By far more then any other superstar in recent wrestling history.

    • David Jr.

      What about Kane?

      • Xavier

        Kane is up there but I’m pretty positive that Big Show has him beat.

      • Alain Alfred Corpuz

        What about Alicia Fox?

  • David Jr.

    Can you really pay off someone’s mortgage, without there knowledge, than threaten to take there house if they don’t pay you?

    • Xavier

      Of course not, that’s about as realistic as a guy getting buried alive on multiple occasions but still coming…..no wait WWE has done that to lol.

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

      Mortgage companies and banks do it all the time with buyouts. Why can’t the WWE do it? Most likely not, but it’s close enough to be believable.

      And who’s to say that Show’s wife didn’t sign?

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

        Actually, from what I’m seeing, yeah, actually, I think you can do it.

        • David Jr.

          Watch Parties, not only fun but educational.

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

            It’s really scary to think about happening. But really, Trip wants to live in show’s house? Like it’s ‘nicer’ than Trip’s? Who knows which house is ‘nicer’, but it’s odd to think about.

          • David Jr.

            When your father in law is Vince McMahon, I’d have a hard time believing Big Show’s house is nicer. Maybe he wants it for Aurora Rose.

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

            Who isn’t even as old as Sam! Sam, by the way, turned ten this week and has been having a blast abusing her ADR Rumbler. She also has a Cena to hang out with her Scott Hall action figure. Hall is her most prized possession.

          • David Jr.

            Scott Hall her most prized possession, I’d say that’s strange. But when I was ten, mine would be my Ted Dibiase wrestling buddy. Which I still own to this day.

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

            She has this huge thing for Scott Hall. No clue where it came from, but she adores the man.

          • David Jr.

            When she greets someone, does she say Hey Yo?

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

            She hasn’t gotten the inflection right yet.

          • David Jr.

            Though to me, I enjoyed him more as Razor Ramon.

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

            Might that be because his demons got a tight hold on him right after that?

          • David Jr.

            I enjoyed Scott Hall in the NWO, when it was just Nash and Hogan with him. Hmm, you might be right.

          • Xavier

            Maybe him & Steph are having marriage problems. What if Vince & Stephanie moved across the street and are always intruding like on Everybody Loves Raymond.

        • Xavier

          Big Show vs Triple H, winner get’s the house, the car, the kids, the dog and Big Show’s wife. Book it!

          • David Jr.

            No dogs, WWE has done 2 story lines with dogs, Pepper and Lucy and both sucked.

          • Xavier

            Okay Okay, no dogs

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

            You forgot Fifi!

          • David Jr.

            Fifi wasn’t nearly as bad as Pepper and Lucy were.

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

            True, but you were bringing up dogs.

          • David Jr.

            I just thought of another bad dog, Matlida.

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

            I knew there was another one we were missing, and couldn’t put my finger on it.

          • Xavier

            You going way back with that one

          • David Jr.

            I’m 32 years old and I’ve been watching wrestling almost my entire life.

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

            Thanks for making me feel old!

          • David Jr.

            How did I make you feel old?

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

            Old enough that I was in school when you were born.

          • David Jr.

            I’m older than Jesse though.

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

            And you’re both older than Gesus, and you’re all older than Robbie,

          • David Jr.

            Well it’s better to have someone older or at least the same age as you, so when you make a reference like Matlida, you know what I’m talking about.

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

            Yeah, but you have to realize, my oldest is almost the same age as Jesse!

            I do, though, as I said before, I lost a lot of memory when I was ill 2009-2011.

          • David Jr.

            I have no idea how old you are by the way.

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

            And you wouldn’t from that last comment. My oldest will be 27 soon, but she’s adopted, and I’m only BARELY old enough to be her mother biologically. I just turned 40.

          • David Jr.

            Wow that’s only a 13 year age difference. you do mean barely.

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

            Yeah, we actually sat down with a calendar one day to figure things out. I took her in when she was a teenager and needed someone who cared.

          • David Jr.

            That’s great, the world needs more people like you.

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

            Thanks, and I agree. We just did the same thing again. We took in another teen just recently.

          • Xavier

            I don’t get old, I level up. Lol

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

            The way I’ve been feeling this week – I wish!

          • Xavier

            Lol

          • Xavier

            I’m right behind you, 29 here. Been watching WWE/WWF since I was 4.

  • Alex Gallardo

    They’re building up the WHC title match in the first match tonight. This title might as well be considered the same as the IC title, it’s become so worthless.

    • Xavier

      The WHC has been devalued ever since the brand split ended. Everyone wants to use ADR has the scapegoat and what not but it really has nothing to do with him though. You could put the belt on anyone not named Cena, Punk, Bryan, Lesnar, Rock and the belt wouldn’t really mean much. Ending the brand split was a bad idea in more ways then one.

      • Alex Gallardo

        I agree. It’s also sad seeing the state of the title considering it’s the last we have of WCW.

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

        I have to disagree. I will say that the brand split ended it’s been treated badly, but the time ADR has worn the strap has made the worth of the belt drop significantly. The man barely phones in his matches, and his mic work blows goats. The man is not a main eventer, and that he’s strapped at all is a travesty.

        • Xavier

          I don’t think it has anything to do with ADR, you just don’t like the guy lol. He’s nowhere near as bad as people make him out to be. I agree he’s not over though but I strongly disagree he phones in his matches or that he’s terrible on the mic. Even when Sheamus, Big Show & Mark Henry had the title it barely meant anything. What’s the point of having two titles on 1 show. One of them is going to have to take a back seat to the other, especially when all your top acts are going after the WWE Championship. Notice all the complaints about the lack of storylines or the fact that this new Corporate angle is taking up so much time? You can blame a good portion of that on the split ending as well. You can trace a lack of real creative writing and a lack of focus on the WHC back to mid to late 2011 when the split ended and superstars started appearing everywhere. The split also decreases the chances of younger guys/newer talent getting TV time to develop probably.

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

            I’m not saying that the split wasn’t a big part of it, just that ADR has done a lot of it as well. I defended ADR for a very long time, but just became disgusted with his lack of ring appeal and creativity. I tried to like the guy, but he ruined it for me.

          • Xavier

            What’s wrong with his creativity, the guy is good on the mat and incorporates different moves into his matches all the time. He’s been a solid performer since he’s been in the E. He’s had good matches with Christian, Big Show, Sheamus, Rey Mysterio, Ziggler and a whole gang of other guys. You also have to remember that he came over from AAA Mexico and wrestled a completely different style before coming over here and being told he had to get rid of the mask and throw out everything he ever knew in Mexico pretty much in order to adapt to the WWE style. English isn’t even his 1st language and he’s still better on the mic then guys like Swagger, Axel, Truth, Kofi, RVD and a whole list of other guys.

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

            Didn’t say he wasn’t better than those guys, just that he’s not at all interesting, or expressive.

            I have to disagree about his creativity in the ring. He, like too many, hit the same moves in the same order, but most of his moves are slight variations on kicks. The man doesn’t even have a finishing move. A finishing hold, but not a finishing move. It just isn’t working.

            Yes, he’s used to a whole different style, which is why I supported him and really hoped he’d be able to adapt to the WWE’s style, but I don’t think he has. Much of the time it feels as though he’s just going through the motions, not really putting much into his work.

          • Xavier

            Did you see Punk’s match on RAW against Big E? 95% of his offense was variations of kicks. As a matter of fact the most two over faces right now (Punk & Bryan) offensive move set is made up of a lot variations of kicks.

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

            Punk has been annoying me with that too, and Bryan. Not saying it’s just ADR.

            Until just recently Orty’s matches have made me want to cry they were so predictably boring.

          • Xavier

            To tell you the truth. Pretty much every wrestler on the planet is predictable. Every wrestler has a go to set of moves that they use in just about every match. People assume that because you have limited move set that your not a great wrestler but that’s so far from the truth though. It’s how you use it that counts. I can argue that telling a story inside the ring is more important then having billion moves.

          • David Jr.

            I agree, IWC seems the think the term, the 5 moves of doom started with John Cena, but it actually started with Bret Hart, who many think is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.

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

            Hogan was the same way. Heck, Flair is so predictable that I think of predictable matches as Flair matches!

          • David Jr.

            But if you were Hulk Hogan, would you change it up. He was on top WWF for almost the entire 80s.

          • Xavier

            Hogan was actually a damn good wrestler. Check out his stuff over in AWA in the early 80s or his stuff in NJPW. It’s like watching a different dude, you’ll be blown away by some of that stuff.

          • David Jr.

            That was before he injured himself. Hogan claims he injured himself in his match against Iron Sheik and never told anyone. So he created the whole Hulking up thing to get over, and well it worked.

          • Xavier

            Exactly, even guys like Austin, Rock, Taker had a 5 moves of doom. But for whatever reason they get a pass but Cena doesn’t. I’m glad you pointed that out. That’s one of my main issues with the IWC, they pick & choose who they want to attack but will give a internet darling/Attitude Era guy a free pass for doing the exact same thing they claim they hate about someone else.

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

            I rarely know what Dolph is going to do in the ring next. I won’t say he’s the best wrestler, but he mixes things up, makes things interesting and exciting. That’s one thing I’m looking for in a match. I also love mat work, and how they can take what they know and change things up.

            I also enjoy matches that really tell a story, more than just good vs evil.

            Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think the guy is great by any means but I do think he’s a lot better then you and most people on here give him credit for.

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

            I’ve tried really hard to give him the benefit of the doubt, but I see very little coming from him on a weekly basis. I just don’t see superstar in the man, and I really don’t see main eventer, and absolutely don’t see WHC!

  • David Jr.

    I always thought the Van Terminator was impressive but the fact that at 42 years old, he still can do it, is even more impressive.

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

      And you know Hussey was so excited when he heard he was going to take such a famous move. I can see him being giddy about it.

  • Alex Gallardo

    This has pretty much been the only buildup for Curtis Axle vs. R Truth.

    • Xavier

      Yeah pretty much. Not sure it deserves the effort of any sort of build up though.

  • David Jr.

    It seems like anytime they want to throw a US or IC title match on the PPV, they make the champion face R-Truth.

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

      He manages to get the fans riled up, so he’s an obvious choice when they’re not moving the title.

      • David Jr.

        I was going to say Kofi Kingston, too. But Kofi actually wins the titles.

        • Xavier

          They should of turned Big E face and interjected him into the US or IC title scene

          • David Jr.

            They should just unify the US and IC titles, most people agree the WHC is almost the IC title now, so the US/IC title can be what the European title use to be.

          • Xavier

            I think if they went back to the brand split then those belts would have more meaning again. They’d be giving more focus and more build.

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

            Big E is so much better as a face, and needs time to be in his comfort zone to grow on TV before being forced to be something he isn’t.

    • Alain Alfred Corpuz

      When you’re a Champion and you’re booked to face R-Truth for your title at a PPV. You know you’re gonna already

  • Xavier

    Another good ADR/Ziggler match here. These guys have good chemistry together

  • Alex Gallardo

    The least WWE could do is just have the guys show up on Raw.

  • Xavier

    When you mess with the Bull you get the horn lol. That little Bull got all kinds of air time.

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

      Everything I’ve heard about the man under the mask is fantastic.

  • David Jr.

    Its a shame that SMS is no longer, because Los Matadores might not be for Raw and Smackdown, but they be great on SMS.

  • David Jr.

    So Brie Bella’s going to be drunk at Battleground?

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

      That was what I thought they meant.

      • David Jr.

        That’s what I took Brie Mode meant in Total Divas.

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

          Me too.

  • David Jr.

    Maybe a feud with Bray Wyatt can change Kofi Kingston’s character up.

    • Xavier

      Hopefully, but I have a feeling Kofi will be used as a stepping stone to further build the Wyatts.

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

      I’d love to see Kofi kidnapped, turned, and come back as a heel. I think his character needs something because he’s just been too much of the same for too long. He’s over with the fans, but because he’s fun, not because he’s very interesting, or has a lot of character.

      • Xavier

        I’m not sure Kofi could pull of a heel turn in all honestly. The guy has Ricky Steamboat life long face written all over him.

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

          He is very Rey also, but I’d love to see him try it. I think he could do it, but I’m honestly not sure.

      • David Jr.

        I agree 100%

      • Alain Alfred Corpuz

        Kofi will never be a Main Eventer unless he turns Heel. Same theory with MVP back then

  • Xavier

    Anyone else on here looking more forward to the Rhodes/Shield tag match more so then Bryan/Orton this Sunday?

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

      As much as.

      Have Goldy and Cody ever tagged before in the E?

      • David Jr.

        My guess is no. But being brothers, I bet they have chemistry together.

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

          October 3, 2010 – Hell in a Cell: R-Truth, Kofi Kingston and Goldust defeated Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler in a dark match.

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

            January 27, 2013 – Royal Rumble: Goldust was in the Royal Rumble match and got eliminated by his brother Cody Rhodes

          • David Jr.

            Do Goldust and Cody have the same or different mothers?

          • Xavier

            Yo David, your Tigers off to a great start. 3-0 Detroit in the middle of the 1st Inning.

          • David Jr.

            I know I saw that, I’m watching both.

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

            They have different mothers. The big problem between the boys is that Dusty was never home for Dustin, but after Cody was born he stayed home more. Dustin felt that Dusty loved Cody more, etc.

          • David Jr.

            I knew that 2nd part because I read Goldust’s autobiography. But I don’t know if he mention about Cody’s mom or not. Because Goldust’s autobiography was all over the place.

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

            I was under the impression they had different mothers… Let me see what I can find.

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

            Wiki says they’re half brothers, and since they both have the same last name Runnels, and they both look like Dusty, I’d say they have different mothers.

          • David Jr.

            You’re probably right. I’m just saying I usually remember autobiographies, Goldust’s was just so unorganized though.

          • Xavier

            They’ve been pitching for a Goldust/Cody match at Mania forever now. Who knows, they may go into Mania as Tag Champions.

  • Vaneyscopaz

    So the heavyweight title direction is Del Rio to RVD to Sandow to Kofi Kingston… I can dig it!
