Raw Is Blogged: Seth, Don't Leave Me Hanging!
What's good everybody, your boy Andre aka Xavier is back for another fun filled RAW recap. I've been traveling the road the past few days on business, so I do apologize in advance for such a late recap. So let's get to it. MIZ TV FEATURING BROCK LESNAR: 9/10 Brock and Heyman ...read more
Raw Is Blogged - Ride Alone
What's good everybody, it's your boy, Xavier. Before I start with my recap, I want to share a quick funny story with you guys. For years my mom has always teased me about *Her wording* my "love of watching grown men and women handle adult disputes by stripping down to underwear ...read more
Raw is Blogged: I'm Just Here To Stack Bodies
What's good everybody, this is long time WNW reader Andre Holly II, most of you know me as Xavier. Recently I was fortunate enough to be recruited by fellow writer Big M, and with everyone in WNW's blessing, they're handing off Raw Is Blogged to me. Hopefully, I'll be able to do ...read more
Raw Is Blogged: The Mizzies?
Hello WNW people. My name is Mitch “Big M” Adams, and this is Raw Is Blogged. Which is, of course, an opinion based review of Monday Night Raw each week if you did not know that before! So without further ado, let’s get stuck into what happened on Monday Night Raw this week, ...read more
Raw Is Blogged: I Wish I Were Still Watching New Japan!
Hello, WNW people. I am Mitch “Big M” Adams filling in for Queen Kendra this week and presenting Raw Is Blogged! I’m going to level with you guys, after watching the G1 Special this weekend just about everything WWE did felt like a MASSIVE come down by comparison. But, WWE did ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – I'm Inside Your Mind. I'm Everywhere!
I need to start this RIB with the biggest disclaimer I've ever written. The Raw Is Blogged is my own personal opinion and doesn't reflect those of WNW, or any other writer within WNW. If you have any issue with what I've written, please be respectful in the comments. If you ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – You Seem To Have Forgotten, I'm Not Finished With You!
This episode of Raw was so much better than the past two weeks, but it surely wasn't up to snuff. The grades might not seem too bad, but thinking about it, I think they are the way they are because Raw's been such crap lately. Actually, WWE as a whole, minus NXT, has been rather ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Where's The Wrestling?
The WWE is sports entertainment, but all in all we tune in to see some great wrestling, but for the second week in a row we have seen a little good wrestling and a whole lot of talking. Yes, storylines are important, but it's the wrestling that we all tune in to see, and there's ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – This Guy Is Not Over In His Yard
I have to give ALL props for the title for this RIB to Missy Hyatt. In the opening segment, after Reigns came to the ring, she tweeted those words, and I immediately came here and put it in as the title. I also have to say that if you don't follow Missy Hyatt on Twitter ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Hardcore Hugger?
I went four days without watching the WWE Network, and I have to say that I wasn't doing well. I went on one of my medieval excursions in the Green Mountains of Vermont, and I didn't have any connectivity up there. Yes, I know, if I'm being medieval I shouldn't be watching the ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Rollins' Knee Almost Fell Off His Body!
I was incredibly sick last week. I wasn't just sick, but I barely got out of bed for over a week. I had an issue with one of my meds being changed and really not agreeing with me. We have it worked out, I'm going back to the one that worked so well for me. If you really ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Our Real Life Is Better Than Our Dreams!
I have a correction, and apology to make, and where better than right here. Last week I commented on Dana's lipstick smudging all over her mouth during her match. Last night, on Twitter, she told me that it was blood. Of course I now feel horrible about what I said, and I ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – No Cracker For You!
I want to start this in a way I haven't had to start this in a very long time, and I'm sorry if I offend anyone, but I'm going to tell it like it is. If you have a problem with me saying what I'm saying, take it to my email account – email@example.com Now, what I ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – I'm Not A Brand, I'm Dean Ambrose! Or, Your Screams Will Be Like Symphonies In My Ears!
WNW seems to be a roller coaster in a big way lately, but that's also what makes it that much more fun. Between the site, Twitter, and everything else we are branching out toward, it's been a load of craziness. I'm working on a number of other articles which should be coming to ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Roman Finally Got Over, Well, Flipped Over!
Short of handing out typewriter written mimeographed sheets of paper with the roster changes, this is the lamest way the WWE could have handled the Superstar Shakeup! The Draft was so exciting to watch, this was lamer than lame. They should want the fans to be excited watching, ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – That's Not How You Spell Soft!
I'm so late that I'm just going to jump in. I hope you enjoy! Raw Starts In Ring Segment > A+ What an amazing moment. From when Reigns beat Taker at WrestleMania, the fans had been discussing what would happen with Reigns on Raw, and contemplating what might happen. We all ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Andy And Big Gal With The Ladder To The Face; Or, You Better Rip My Leg Off And Beat Me With It
There are so many things going on here at WNW that I thought I'd use this spot to tempt you and fill you in on a few things. The first being that we have a second Twitter account, and we are playing things a little different there. It's the old WWE_Network account, but it's now ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – He Was Marking Out Maaaaan!
I have to wonder how this WrestleMania is going to pan out. It seems as though each year we become more and more worried about WrestleMania as it approaches, and while some matches help save the show every year, it seems as though they're missing the ball more and more. We all ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – The Only Meaningful Relationships You've Had Are With Inflatable People!
What the heck was up with the matches? So few matches, so short, and more DQs than normal. What a mess wrestling-wise. I just don't get what the WWE is doing with Raw. I know they're getting ready for WrestleMania, but storylines mean more than just people talking – other than ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Flair And Square?
I know a lot of people have been expecting me to totally trash Raw and Fastlane here, but it's been over 20 hours since Raw, and 40 hours since Fastlane and I've had time to ruminate on what we saw, and I think I covered everything I wanted in the body of this RIB. I will admit ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – I Don't Need To Beat You, I Just Need To Outlast You, Outsmart You, And You're Nothing
Another week, another crap episode of Raw. Now, I will say that there were three segments and one match that were actually really great, but three hours cannot rest on three segment and a main event. There's so much wrong with Raw these days that only get worse as we get closer ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – “Damn Right Joe, You're Not Sami Zayn!” Or, “Joe's Gonna Kill You!” Or, Bayley's Gonna Hug You!
I'm so much later than I wanted this to be, and I'm not going to say that this won't happen again, because it has been happening. Between my health and the weather, I've had a bit of a tough winter. Three snow storms last week, another one scheduled to start tomorrow, yet Big M ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – GOAT Or Stupid Idiot? Tom Brady Or Chris Jericho? Or, Is It Flim Flam Flash?
While some of the grades here are not too bad, I have to say that this was the most boring and worst Raw I've seen in a long time. I know I've said that before, but when half of the Raw Open Thread Discussion turn the channel, or start playing video games – while still hanging ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Suck It Up, Buttercup, I'm Back!
I have to apologize for being out the past couple weeks. I had to focus on my small business so that I could attend a show/sale over the past weekend. And now I have to apologize for this RIB being shorter than normal. I caught the Birka plague at the medieval event where I ...read more
Raw Is Blogged - Like A Very Sexy Pinata!
Hello all, and welcome to this week's installment of Raw is Blogged, brought to you by CJ Blaze. It's been awhile since I've filled in for the Queen, so hopefully you enjoy! Raw Starts In Ring Segment > B+ Roman Reigns surprisingly had a mixed reaction and not a complete boo ...read more
Raw is Blogged – Digging 29 Holes For 29 Souls
Hey guys! I'm taking over for Kendra Bunyon just for this week so bear with me as we may not coincide in terms of our opinions but I will also be brutally honest so don't worry about that either! RAW (01.09.17) Backstage Segment - Stephanie McMahon gives Mick Foley his ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – I'm Just Bayley, And That's Good Enough For Me!
I know that WNW is a PG site, but this RIB isn't exactly PG. I kinda let it all hang out this week, so please don't read if you're easily offended. Further, these views reflect my opinion, and mine alone, and do not reflect those of Richard Gray, WNW, or anyone who writes for ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Rollins Is Tongue Tied & Jericho Is A Sexy Pinata
I'm going to jump right in as this episode of Raw dragged so badly that I don't have it in myself to drag it out any further. Raw Starts In Ring Segment > A- Steph slammed Punk! Dang, she didn't hold back there, and I have to say that I'm thrilled the WWE did that, and Steph ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Monkeys In The Truck, I Want Michael Cole For Christmas!
So, last night I had my medieval monthly meeting and completely forgot to edit and post this. All on me. Therefore there's no opening. Now I have to go get the SmackDown Breakdown edited and posted, so that will be up very soon as well. (EDIT: There won't be a SD Breakdown this ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Meatloaf And Bon Jovi Tour, Over Before It Begins
Much of this episode of Raw was a breath of fresh air. Much of it was uplifting, and made me feel a bit better, both physically, and about the WWE. I'm sorry there wasn't an RIB last week. I was quite sick, and in bed for the majority of the week. The last thing you needed was ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – It Was Sin Cara Wearing A Jericho Mask!
I've been begging, screaming, for the WWE to look back at the things that they did that the fans loved. Fighting in different locations, changing up how things are done so they're not the same every week. It seems as though someone is finally listening and doing something about ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – KO Is Zack's Patronus, Deal With It, You Stupid Idiot!
This was a solid Raw, much better than expected, and rather than dawdle this week, I'm just going to jump right in and see what they gave us! Oh, one thing, the title this week came from something Zack said in the WNW WWE Raw Open Thread Discussion. It stuck out at me, so I took ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – I Don't Like Scarves! And I Don't Like You!
Actually, I love scarves. I have a scarf collection that rivals Jericho's, other than in cost. I'm living on a fixed income, so no $750 scarves from Vienna for me. Though I have friends who just came back from Vienna and if I'd asked, they would have brought me home a scarf. Not ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Peasants, All Hail Your Queen! Ladies And Gentlemen, You Are Pissing Me Off!
What a long and amazing weekend! For me every weekend in October was booked, which is very unusual for me. Between medieval events, a (medieval) wedding, and our yearly trip up the coast, my month was full, other than the last weekend of the month. I was looking forward to that ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Somebody Has Stolen The List! I Found The List! Can You Give Me The List? Say Please!
While this episode of Raw wasn't great, it made me that much more excited to go to HIAC. I think, if I wasn't going, I would have been more disappointed in Raw than I was. Raw has really struggled to keep up with SmackDown Live, and it's the glaring issue in the WWE right now, ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – What If Neville Found A Personality? Or, Inconceivably, Goldberg Was Genuine And Endearing!
I had my monthly medieval meeting this evening, so this is later than I wanted it to be, so I'm going to jump right in. I truly believe that Mitch 'Big M' is the only person I know who l really doesn't like New Day, and since he reviews SmackDown, he doesn't get a chance to get ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – This Is So Armbar!
I was planning on starting this Raw Is Blogged wallowing in self-pity over the fact that Hell In A Cell is going to be in Boston and I wasn't going. To be honest, until it was announced that Sasha and Charlotte were facing off for the Women's Championship in HIAC, I honestly ...read more
Raw Is Blogged - Is This Really What Raw Has Been Reduced To?
What the heck have they done to Raw? This Brand Extension has totally screwed Raw over. The three hour show is looking that much worse. Add in the fact that the number of commercial breaks, and the number of commercials in each break, have gone up quite a bit – and not just last ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – I Want to Sit On Santa Cass' Lap!
I have two major things I need to address before I jump into Raw. The first being that I'm a bit put out by one of the ways the WWE is handling Connor's Cure. They are selling bracelets and bandanas on the WWE Shop Zone, but they are not selling pins. Now the bracelets are cute, ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Are We Back In Middle School?
Between Jericho talking about his bestie and making lists of why he doesn't like Foley, followed by his slam book list about who he doesn't like and why! Oh, and we can't forget the CWs who look like they haven't hit puberty and…okay, that's going too far, especially since The ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Let's Go, Jobber!
Has Foley lost some weight this past week or two? He looks suddenly thin. Like shockingly suddenly Foley looks like he's lost a bunch of weight. I'm hoping it's just the jacket he was wearing, but I'm going to be keeping a closer eye on Foley. He's one of my most beloved ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – The Good, The Bad, And The Really, Really Ugly
This episode of Raw started so great, and then they remembered that it was Labor Day and the booking completely crapped out. They pulled it out in the end, but everyone I spoke to was only holding out to see what was going to happen with Sasha Banks and the main event match. ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Trip Serves The KO Pedigree
I have to start this by apologizing for the look of the RIB last week. I put the title together because of what Strowman's jobber said, but I put the pic in for Bayley's debut. I didn't realize how it would look on WNW. Bayley with that smirk and her thumbs up and the RIB title ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – I Like Big Sweaty Men
Again, later than I wanted to get this out to you, and while there's a lot I could say about SummerSlam, I'm just going to jump into the RIB so you don't have to wait any longer. Love you all! Raw Starts In Ring Segment > F-&B+ The F is for obvious reasons. It hurts to see ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – The G Association Of America? Who Certified Him? SWAFT? English Isn't Even My First Language!
I was sick Monday and Tuesday, so I'm going to jump into jump into this RIB to get it out there as quickly as possible. While I'd like to complain about ADR, I won't, not yet. Raw Starts In Ring Segment > B+ Finally! It's been a long time since someone has threatened to hijack ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Rambo Apocalypses, The Chemistry Was Like A Science Fair
This summer I've spent more time than ever at SCA events. (Medieval reenactment, very different from Ren Faires in so many ways, check us out.) One of the comments that come up a lot is when something (like a car parked in the middle of a place that it shouldn't be) happens is, ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Time Passes Like A Kidney Stone
“If Raw wasn't a three-hour show, I'd be more willing to watch those, 'immediately following Raw…' things, but after three hours, and having to work in the morning, it just doesn't happen,” said Stacy. I think that completely sums up my feeling about three hour Raw as well. Or, ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Her Girlhood Dream Has Become Reality
It was more than time to change the Raw set, and I love what they did, other than putting announce back up by the stage again. I will never understand why it's up there. It didn't work last time they did in on Raw, it didn't work well for WCW or TNA. The only place it's worked ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – Wo-Tang Has How Many People?
I'm posting this late as I was scheduled to be at a family reunion in a small Maine amusement park (Funtown Splashtown USA) for the day, and only getting back for SmackDown Live. Honestly, I missed the first half hour of SmackDown, but while I'm writing this after SmackDown ...read more
Raw Is Blogged – I Don't Care If You Break The Law, Just Don't Get Caught!
We are dropping DISH. Now, we are doing it because the ONLY thing we really watch on 'regular TV' is wrestling and Doctor Who. Now, we can get creative about Doctor Who, but I will have to get more creative about wrestling. I know it can be found, like much of Raw is on Hulu on ...read more
