Feel free to leave your thoughts on this week's show and/or give me feedback about the coverage. Thanks for reading!


  • Hi all! I know the SD OTP doesn’t have a lot of chatters, but I’m here if anyone wants to shoot the bull.

  • David

    It’s been so long since we’ve had it. But I personally miss having to “hate” Triple H.

    • I just wish my DISH didn’t completely blort right as Haven ended and SD started!

      As long as we’re not stuck with too many 20 minute Trip promos, I’m all for loving to hate Trip.

      • David

        I think he’s one of the few heels, that even knows how to get the IWC to hate him.

        • He really is good, and deserves to be where he is, even though so many people think he only got there for marrying Steph.

          • David

            I remember before he got married to Stephanie, people were calling him the best wrestler and best heel in the WWF. And when he was on top it was post Austin/Rock and Pre Cena, so they really had nobody else.

          • He proved himself before, people were just being jealous.

          • David

            Plus I think his marriage to Stephanie is going to be the best for the WWE in the long haul. Because let’s face it, Vince McMahon won’t live forever.

          • Paul and Steph are really proving themselves backstage.

      • Brandon Ceielo

        Was your audio chipmunky? Mine did that (DISH also).

        • Nope, just kicked it all together. It’s back now.

          • Ashley

            Mine did the same thing! After 15 minutes of it, I gave up 🙁

  • David

    JBL just said come to work and be a good employee. But I thought they weren’t employees, I thought they were Indepedent contracters.

    • They are independent contractors, but that’s a mouthful, and most watchers wouldn’t have a clue about that stuff.

      • David

        Yeah makes sense.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    I haven’t been able to watch RAW / SD for the past few weeks (family stuff) so I don’t know much about what is going on. I did see SummerSlam and Payback though. Did they say why The Shield are teaming with the Hunter group?

    • David

      Not really.

    • Adam Wacker

      Justice isn’t free.

    • They are basically playing muscle and enforcers for Trip.

  • I loves me some AJ. Be it WWE or TNA, I loves me some AJ!

    • Brandon Ceielo

      Yeah, I still wish AJ Styles would come to WWE and have feuds with Bryan and Punk.

      • McMahon would humble him terribly, but after that things would be amazing!

        • David

          His name wouldn’t be AJ Styles though, it probably be like Johnathan Allen.

          • The WWE has been really crappy with their naming lately. Finally they’re starting to use some more nicknames again, and playing better.

          • David

            But with AJ Lee, would they want two AJs?

          • No,they wouldn’t, but I hope that they’d do something decent as the names have been getting better lately.

          • David

            I don’t think the names matter as who’s playing them though. Daniel Bryan is a success not because of his name but because of Brian Danielson.

          • Yes, but Husky Harris and Michael McGillicutty were killed by bad names and lackluster characters. That was Dusty causing them problems, so I don’t see it happening that way again. I don’t mind the boring names if people have spark, and nicknames help.

            Bry has spark like few others. He doesn’t need a nickname.

  • David

    With Edge appearing on Raw this past Monday. Made me start thinking, with Christian out now with a concussion, how much longer before has to announce his retirement?

    • I have been worried about that myself. I love me some CC, but he doesn’t have that much longer in him.

      • David

        Christian, like Edge, put there body’s in situation’s so many time that it’s not gonna be able to go like it has much longer.

        • I just hope that CC can move as seamlessly into something else the way Edge has.

          • David

            I agree. I started to watch the show Haven because of Edge, and I’ve enjoyed him in it.

          • I am from Maine and a big Stephen King fan, so I have been interested from the start, but I didn’t start with the show, so I have to go back and watch from the beginning. They had a marathon on today and I really got into the storyline. I need to read the original story that it’s based on.

          • David

            I bought the first 2 seasons of haven on dvd to catch up on the story.

          • Have you read any King?

          • David

            No I haven’t.

          • Haven has a very King feel, even though it’s based off one of his stories, not written by him.

          • David

            I probably would enjoy his books.

          • I do. He’s more than just horror. He really writes some deep books.

          • David

            Odd conversation to have on a wrestling site, but what is your favorite?

          • I really like Different Seasons. It’s four short novellas. Shawshank Redemption comes from it, as does The Long Walk. Both of them are up there for me.

            My favorite King book is The Stand, but the uncut version. The cut version sucks. He wasn’t well known when he first put it out, and they made him cut about 500 pages from it. When he was more established he put it out the way he meant it to be published, and it’s great!

  • David

    Ziggler vs. Ambrose could easily steal Night of Champions.

    • Very possible, unless Orton faced Bryan alone. Those two have proven themselves great in the ring together, but I don’t see Orton being completely alone.

      • David

        Bryan vs. Anyone has a chance to be match of the night in reality.

        • If it’s not Bry versus all of Trip’s heels at once.

  • David

    Anyone else, besides me, think Kofi could actually make a good heel?

    • Brandon Ceielo

      With the bad-ass way he talked to Orton on top of that car, I believe he can. I just wish they’d take him more seriously.

      • David

        Some of his mannerisms actually remind me of a young Randy Savage.

        • I’ve always thought that Ko could be solid as a heel if given the chance, but there’s always the possibility that he’s a natural face like Rey or Big E.

    • Hiroki Witt

      I wish they would do something to shake his character up a bit. We’ve all seen the same goofy offense from him for years, and it’s gotten old. Also, stop pushing him for the IC and United States championships.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    This crowd is awesome so far. Nice win for Kofi as well.

    • And nice to hear the fans split for the two two of them. That Axel is getting some reaction of his own – even though it’s fans wanting to see him hit his father’s move – and not feeding off heyman’s heat, is great to see!

      • Brandon Ceielo

        After this, I am going to catch up on a month of RAW / SD!. Loving this.

        • There’s been some solid ring and mic work this past month in the WWE. The same can’t be said for TNA, especially after last night!

          • David

            Though with Roode vs. Magnus and Styles vs. Aries, they have a chance next week.

          • Next week the wrestling on Impact should be jaw dropping, but this past episode was a travesty!

          • David

            I was asking my brother this, which of the four, Aries, Roode, Magnus and Styles would have the most success in the WWE?

          • I’ve said for a long time that Roode reminds me of a young Trip. If he has Trip’s work ethic, he could do great.

            Magnus has a great look, is a bit bigger, can talk, and is British – something they don’t have a lot of right now.

            AJ is AJ, if he could handle how things are done there, he could be up with Bry and Punk.

            Aries is loved by the WWE people already, and that man can go! His ring and mic work are top notch. My only worry is that he works a bit wilder than the WWE likes.

            Honestly, I think Aries would have the best shot in the WWE.

            What about you guys?

          • David

            My brother said Roode and I thought Aries.

          • I could make a case for any of them, but Aries is the most well rounded of the group.

          • David

            That’s the reason I brought it up, 4 of not just TNA’s best but 4 of the best in wrestling right now.

          • Add in Punk and Bry and they are the best.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Wow! Total Divas vs the other divas! Didn’t remember there being this many girls on the roster.

    • It would be better if more of them could wrestle, but at least some of them can. Some of them aren’t even worth the time they try to wrestle!

      • David

        Yeah Aksana doesn’t really fit on the other Divas side.

        • I think Foxy is horrible in the ring and on mic as well. I have no use for her.

  • David

    50 comments on a Smackdown watch party, that must be a record.

    • I’m sure it is. Being a Friday night, and a taped show, there’s rarely anyone in here talking. I’ll hang with you guys on the Friday nights that I’m home. It’s not like a have a wild social life, but I do have a few things that drag me out some nights.

      • Brandon Ceielo

        Is it seriously this quiet every week? The only reason I haven’t been on here is because I usually watch RAW / SD online very late at night when I have nothing to do.

        • David

          No it’s usually way more quiet than this.

          • Yeah, I’m only in here when I’m home. David and I talked in here a bit a couple weeks ago. But if people are interested, we will push this more.

          • David

            If you or Jesse aren’t participating, I don’t know if I would come on here. (though Gesus did a good job on Monday).

          • I was impressed with how Gesus stepped up on Monday. He was prepared as we knew Jesse wasn’t feeling well. I think Gesus will be saying more now as he’s more comfortable with it now.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    What? Big Show sympathetic face? I heard Hunter’s character was a bully but is it much worse than this?

    • David

      What’s worse is the whole Big Show story line. Stephanie looked up to the Big Show as a child (wrong it was Andre). Big Show can be held to a breach of contract if he doesn’t perform (put as a heel he couldn’t). Plus the whole Big Show is broke, like HBK, I have a hard time to suspend my belief that Big Show is broke.

      • I ran the numbers and write them in the RIB. Show came over from WCW in 1999. Steph was 23 at the time. It was Andre who was her giant. That picture from WM1 is so darling!

        • David

          Big Show is only 4 years older than Stephanie, Big Show is 3 years younger than her husband. He didn’t start playing college basketball at WIchita State until 1991. Stephanie McMahon was 12 in 1988.

      • Brandon Ceielo

        Yeah, the broke bit did remind me of HBK and the whole breach of contract stuff slapped me for that very reason (heel stuff). I was still taking it all in and typed as fast as I could. Still, is he a face because he just returned? I remember him missing from TV for a while and showed up with Kofi and Vickie G. at a PPV talking like they were sports talk people.

        • David

          Yeah basically’s that’s why he’s a face.

          • Very few can return as heels. The fans are just so happy to see them back that they have to be face.

          • Brandon Ceielo

            I wish they would have returning people make an impact as a heel once in a while. Make them huge threats and go after a title. Look like they deserve to be there.

          • I agree, and a few have turned heel the night they returned, and did it well. Not that I can think of one off the top of my head, but it has happened.

          • David

            Chris Jericho in January 2012, is the only one i can think of.

          • Yes! Good one. I want to say Trip has done it, and possibly Batista.

          • David

            Kane, during the whole John Cena embracing the hate.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    So glad Bryan won and has a new way to win. Knee the crap out of them. Always wished he used a KO finish.
    Ha, all the “Randy sucks” chants.

    • David

      Yeah The Yes Lock is cool, but it’s always good to have a finisher that’s not a submission move.

      • Agreed! But I don’t mind Bry as much as I do ADR.

        • David

          ADR is a whole another story.

      • Brandon Ceielo

        The first time I saw him do that, I stood up yelling “Dude!” Didn’t expect that to end the match but it was awesome to see.

  • Brandon Ceielo

    I gotta go for now, but I’ll try to be here next week as well.

    • Great! Nice talking and I’ll rally for more to join us.

  • mayank

    WWE is no more than a useless crappie movie nowadays….Thanks to the Triple HHH (COO)….He successfully converted the Best Sport Entertainment Program into a BULLSHIT…..Please stop making useless stories & show some fights….

  • kingdook24

    Once again, DB wins in the end & attacked at the end. I know the guy is over like crazy & I’m glad he is but how are we supposed to take him seriously against the Corporate Evolution if DB never comes out on top @ the end? We all know he’s not gonna win at NoC because it’s better to make DB chase the title right now than have it, though I would prefer him to have it. If anything, they’ll probably strap him @ Survivor Series. And I assuming Punk/Heyman’s story will end @ NoC – maybe they’ll finally throw Punk in the mix to give DB some backup or something since the entire roster is scared s***less to say anything.

    That leads me to the Town Hall meeting they had – honestly, this had me hyped but it ended up falling flat to me. No DB or Punk sightings. This lead to two matches that really didn’t mean anything in RVD/Orton & Kofi/Axel. Wish they would’ve did more with this.

    As for the heels being so dominate as of late, I have no problem with heels coming out on top. I have a problem when they come out on top EVERY week to the top that it’s starting to annoy me. I understand the heels are trying to get heat on themselves but this is bugging me like how when Michael Cole or John Laurinaitis were heels – they were annoying heels that I just didn’t wanna see or hear from – Triple H & Orton are getting there for me.

    • eskymi

      Thank goodness I am not the only one that feels this way. Yes, I can see the heels getting an advantage, but in the best era of WWE the heels did get a cumuppance occasionally. If someone would have ripped on Triple H and he wasn’t able to slam them back, great. But when they said something, he had a smart ass comeback.

      Then it should have been DB winning and Orton coming out, but Bryan knew and ended up laying out Orton, you would say that was great because the Face is getting an advantage once in a while, at least spice it up a bit.

      But 3 RAWs and two or three smackdowns where Orton stands over Bryan….wow.

      One good thing is the shows have been very quick to watch for me as I skip anything involving Orton…so the two 25 minute matches were over like that.
