Recap of the growing questions between Rollins and Orton heading into last week's main event. Orton to the ring and helps Rollins get the win.

In Ring Segment

Orton to the ring. The Authority is already in the ring.

Kane – Randy, we could have done this behind closed doors, but we wanted to do it in public to prove to everyone who refuses to believe you're one of us, to reveal their ignorance. It's my duty to welcome you back into The Authority.

Big Show – You and I go back a long time.

Heat stops Big Show's speech.

Big Show – See, it's ignorant people like you who make me mad when I'm making a point. I apologize for their rudeness. When I look at you I see the most talented, sadistic, aggressive athlete I've seen. You'd RKO your own father if he stood in your way. I told them what you're about, I know you. Welcome home bro, welcome back to where you belong.

Noble – As a member of The Authority. (serious heat) I'm proud... I can't do this Seth, he's a no good snake...

Rollins grabs the mic from Noble.

Rollins – Hey, wait, you will have to excuse Jamie, he's always been the sensitive one. (baby voice) Right little Jamie, your little feelings were hurt when big bad Randy gave you the RKO? Look, Jamie, I assure you is 100% thrilled to have you back in The Authority, just Like Joey, right Joey?

Mercury takes the mic, looks, rolls his eyes, then hands the mic back to Rollins, saying, "No," off mic. Mercury then simply gives an iconic thumbs up with one hand, as he's holding the case with the other hand and leaning on the top rope with that elbow.

Rollins – They're J&J Security not J&J Public Speaking. Let's all address the elephant in the room, because we've all been hearing the same thing since you came back. Everyone in the 'Universe' has said the same thing, Orton isn't part of The Authority. Orton is just biding his time to get his revenge on Rollins. (to the fans) Oh yeah, you guys must feel like the biggest idiots on planet earth right now, don'tcha? Not because you live in Pittsburgh, but because Orton and I are side by side in the same ring, proud members of The Authority.

"RKO!" chants.

Rollins – Look, they weren't alone, even myself. I'll admit that. J&J Security had doubt. Kane had some doubt. Big Show, well, no one really cares what Big Show thinks. Hey, hey, takeit easy big guy. Why is everyone stressed? Take it easy. We're all back together, one big happy family. So I'd like to extend my hand and welcome home Orton.

Rollins and Orton shake hands.

Rollins – Now, if you would please, stand up and pay respect to one of the most decorated Superstars in the WWE and my partner tonight, Randy Orton.

Orton – That was very touching. Those words were kind and I felt it in my heart, but it left me thinking something. What the hell happened to The Authority? You guys listening to yourself kiss my ass? Kane, you were the Devil's Favorite Demon, but right now the Devil's Favorite Dumbass? Which is it Kane? Kicking ass and taking names? Or kissing ass and making coffee? What are you looking at Big Show? You should be the most dominant giant in the WWE, but you use all that size, strength and power to bitch and moan and feel sorry for yourself. From the most dominant Superstar in history to the most pathetic. Jamie, you speak from your gut, tell it like it is. Why do you despise me so? Is it because everybody knows who I am? Or, wait a minute, is it because I can get on all the rides at Disney and you can't? It's okay buddy, my six year old daughter feels the same way. And you... (to Mercury) Which brings me to Mr. Seth Rollins. The Architect, Mr. MITB, the self-proclaimed Future of the WWE, you have been blinded by your ego that you can't even see what's happening here. Weeks I've been getting close to your family, biding my time, and you feel safe and secure, and only then will I pick my opportunity to strike. When I strike Seth, I won't just beat you, I won't just beat you down, I plan on making you my bitch! You're going to feel every stomp, every kick, every punch as I take you apart piece by piece until there is no future for Seth Rollins left.

"RKO!" chants.

Orton – Come on guys, I'm just playing around! I'm screwing with you! Lighten the hell up! Come on! I'm messing around guys.

Rollins – The Viper strikes again. You had me so good! Maybe you should be taking over for Jon Stewart. You think we're having fun now, wait until you see us in the main event when we derail Reigns on his Road to WrestleMania. Bring it in, because that is what's best for business!

They're all milling in the ring, none of them quite sure of Orton, but that's to be expected.

Exclusive look at Jericho's newest DVD after Raw. The DVD will be released tomorrow.

In Ring Segment

Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and all day long they have been trying to get me to preview this video, but instead I'm out here live to watch it with you.

It's a Reigns video, looking at his journey, with interview clips looking at him from NXT to The Shield to now. They look into his family and how Rock told him to remember the family, and how he needs to raise that bar. He's all for opinions, but people need to respect his opinion as well. Reigns says WrestleMania is the biggest moment of his life. Sometimes you can build a mystique and everyone's bought into it. He's backed it up, but he can be beaten. He's been told he can't win, but says he can, and will. Believe that.

Heyman – Huh, okay. So Reigns makes some interesting points, to which I shall retort, here comes the pain. The reigning, defending, undisputed WWE WHC Brock Lesnar!

Brock's music hits and out he comes, strap around his waist, pyro goes off. Down to the ring, slides the strap in, then jumps up on the apron. Into the ring, the strap over his shoulder.

The fans are not impressed.

Heyman – I understand what a fan pleasing video, but to my client, it was nothing more than propaganda. If it came out of the tail end of a bull, it wouldn't smell any different. Oh, Reigns was the standout in NXT, went on to be the bad ass of The Shield where he was a standout. Then, he went on to win the Royal Rumble to be the #1 contender, and defended his opportunity at Fast Lane – yay! I've known that family since I was 14, so let me tell you the truth about Reigns. WWE likes to live through fantasy, and that was pure fantasy. The truth that when Reigns was nine, barely more than a savage himself, used to take Reigns and his savage cousins, point out the football players and say, one man left standing, don't come home for dinner tonight. Reigns' uncle would take him to the beach with his other criminal cousins and point out the muscle heads and say, one left standing, don't come home tonight. Take them out with a punch, a tackle, the two moves you see him do today. The same at WrestleMania, beat Brock Lesnar for the Title or don't call yourself a member of this family. Profound motivation for any young man, let alone the baddest member of the family, except one problem, Reigns won't beat Brock Lesnar for the Title at WrestleMania. Brock Lesnar won't lose the Title to you at WrestleMania. Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean the whole world's not against us. I know what goes on behind the scenes, so if The Authority wants to get the strap away from Brock and on Reigns so Rollins can cash in his MITB contract, and isn't man enough to cash it in on Brock Lesnar, and that's smart, because Rollins will be cheaper as Champion than Brock. If anyone has it in their heads to pull a Montreal Screw-Job on Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, my client assures me that anyone involved in a Montreal scenario will not leave that arena alive! See, while Reigns is coming into WrestleMania with the mindset that he wants to stay a part of his family, he has to bite Brock's face off? Brock can get his face stitched up, but the sheer beating Brock will give to Reigns will make all of respect Reigns. Reigns down the street, after the beating he takes from Brock Lesnar. You'll say that's one bad ass Samona, he took a beating like I've never seen. When Reigns...

Heyman's mic cuts out again this week. Heyman looks really annoyed.

Heyman – You know what I really like the about this? I like that Oz behind the curtain, or in the production truck likes to shut off my mic, instead of coming to the ring and taking it out of my hand. Instead of someone in the position of authority around here comes down here and takes that Title away from Brock Lesnar. And if you'd like to take the Title away from Brock Lesnar, go ahead, grab a leg, take your best shot. Because if Brock Lesnar wants to spend his summer unifying the WWE and the UFC Title, that's what he's gonna do! (a bit of a pop) Censor this one, if Brock Lesnar decides to go to Vegas and slap around Mayweather and Pacquiao...By the way, you know if you combine those two, they're still ten pounds shy of you?

Brock smiles, chuckling to himself.

Heyman – That what Brock Lesnar is going to do. Here's a message for everyone who keeps shutting off my damn mic. This Title, no longer belongs to the WWE, this Title belongs to Brock Lesnar! It's his! And he's not giving it back! In 2002 they took a rookie and put him in the ring with The Rock, because they thought they'd make headline with Rock beating a former NCAA Champion, and that rookie sent Dwayne Johnson off to Hollywood. In 2014 they took this accomplished athlete – the first to hold the NCAA Division 1 Heavyweight Championship, the UFC Title and the WWE Title – sent him to Taker at WrestleMania, thinking he'd be the 0 in 22-0, and he didn't just kill the Streak, her damn near killed Taker, now Wyatt has to resurrect him. At SummerSlam, one Beast suplexed Cena out of the main event at WrestleMania. Here's my question, all the same answer, who did that to them all, and what do you think he will do to Reigns at WrestleMania? The answer to these questions is this – Brock Lesnar, Brock Lesnar, Brock Lesnar, Brock Lesnar, Brock Lesnar, Brock Lesnar, the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE WHC, the Beast, the Conqueror, and the one who will leave Reigns on his back at WrestleMania, Brock Lesnar!

Brock rolls his eyes up to look at the WrestleMania sign. Cole talks about the intensity in Brock's eyes as he looks at the sign.

DEP!

Wyatt – WrestleMania is almost here. The reaper awaits you Deadman. Where are you tonight? Find me.

Wyatt is standing behind Taker's urn.

She comes out to the stage in a Heather grey sleeveless shift dress with a subdued ruffle on the V-neck which didn't add any bulk to her already impressive chest, and knee high black boots. She looks pissed. Steph starts on mic on the stage, yelling at them on mic her whole way to the ring and in.

Steph – Hey! Big Show, Kane, turn around right now. What's wrong with the two of you? Why can't you behave like professionals instead of arguing like children? Shut up Big Show! We are three weeks from WrestleMania and you're going to behave like this? Don't you understand that you represent The Authority? That means you represent me and Trip, and WWE. You know what, maybe Orton was right. You're listening now? Maybe Orton was right. Maybe you're too busy whining and kvetching. And maybe you're too busy getting coffee. Orton may have been kidding, but I'm not. I don't know what happened to the monster and the giant, but I want them back. You know what, just get out of my ring. Get out of my ring. I said, get out of my ring!

They both leave the ring. Kane over to Steph and says something.

Steph – Oh, you can work this out yourselves? Yeah. You can do that. How about the two of you pack up your stuff and leave the arena. It's time you think about the bigger picture and what's best for business, and the role you play. And, until you can. Do I make myself clear?

Big Show (off mic) – Yes ma'am.

The two of them head up the ramp ashamed. Steph stomps up and out after them.

Rusev and Lana head for the ring, but there's Cena.

Rusev – What do you want? If you want another rematch, your answer is no.

Cena – I know what your answer is and I don't give a damn, I was listening last week. I know that performing at WrestleMania is not a right, it's a privilege. If I haven't earned it this year, then so be it. But you should listen close, because it seems you're too stupid to understand the same thing! You have had the privilege to come to this country and provide for your family, chase the American dream. You want to be proud of where you're from? Be proud of where you're from, he a hero of the Russian Federation. But get this straight, that does not give you the right to go down to that ring and degrade the very country that's given you the opportunity and expect your actions not to have repercussions.

Rusev – Is that so?

Cena – 100%! You have the right to free speech, but around here I have the right to shut your mouth! You think America's week? You think America has no fight? Why don't you go down there tonight and say one word about the USA, and we don't need a match at WrestleMania, pal, I will prove to you how much fight America has.

Back in the read Hulkamania days, America was strong, but all you do now is live in the past! ("What?") (Speaks his native language off mic.) ("What?") You Americans, all you want to do is negotiate. You are spineless. If you had a spine, it would be made of Jell-O. If you had a heart, it would be full of disease! America, if you had a soul, then God would look down and spit on it. ("What?")

A small "Cena!"chant erupts, and it sounds male. Cena from the ring, keeping that pissy look and smile. On the stage Cena salutes. He's not goody-goody Cena, but he's not full on semi-evil Cena either.

DEP!

The camera on Taker's urn. Wyatt is standing behind it. The camera pulls back to show Wyatt's face.

Noble talking smack about Orton.

Rollins – Come on! You two need to remember, you work for me! Alright. I know exactly what I'm doing. Have I ever, ever steered you guys in the wrong direction? No, absolutely not. I know when people are trustworthy and when people are liars. Orton is one of us guys. 100%, I guarantee it. He likes to kid around, don't we all? And, maybe there was a bit of truth to what he said out there to Big Show and Kane, but you really think Orton is so stupid that he would get up in my face and tell me the plan he was going to enact tonight, or anytime in the future? That's crazy, doesn't even make sense Jamie.

Noble – We just have a bad feeling boss.

Rollins – You two have a bad feeling about this. Well, let me ask you this. Were either of you the person who masterminded the destruction of The Shield? Or, come up with the plan to bring back The Authority? Was that either of you guys? Huh?

Noble – No.

Rollins (baby voice) – Well, who was it Jamie?

Noble – It was you Boss, the Architect.

Rollins – That's right. I am the Architect, and here is the blueprint for tonight. Stop worrying about Randy Orton. You saw what happened last week. He's family. You gotta start focusing on Reigns, because tonight, he gets what he deserves. Trust me guys. I got this. Trust me.

Rollins leaves, but Noble and Mercury don't look convinced.

Wyatt to the ring through his fireflies. He puts the urn carefully on a table covered in puerple crushed velvet cloth in the center of the ring.

Wyatt – I never sleep, but I'm always dreaming. In the darkness of these dreams, I start to see things. I see the world not for what it is, but for what it should be. I see a world laid barren to the virus that infects it. I see cities burning. I see governments crumbling. All these beautiful creations laid to ruin. Hahaha! There's such beauty in chaos, is there not. In these dreams, it is the buzzard that guide me. I can see them circling off in the distance, and I follow them, and when I finally reach them, I am astonished by what it is that I see. For below the buzzards is the shell of a man. Below the buzzards lay the mighty Undertaker. Hahaha! Don't you see Deadman, can't you see it was always about you. Can't you see it was always about you Deadman! Pride has always been my favorite sin, for it was pride that cast me down to walk amongst you. It was pride that led me straight to you. Understand Undertaker, I will not worship you. I don't even want to stand by your side! I want to walk over your broken bones as I ascend to my throne! Because I am not your redemption. I cannot be your redemption Undertaker, because I am the new face of fear!

A small but solid pop from the fans as Wyatt takes a small pause in his speech.

Wyatt – Fear, that's right. You know fear because they all used to fear you. This was preordained. I was chosen! You always knew that you were gonna, that the Streak was going to end, and that you thought you'd be carried off on your shield. But that ain't what happened, was it? Instead the cruel hands of fate stole your destiny, but understand, I can give it all back to you Undertaker! For WrestleMania will be your resurrection, and it will also be your requiem. Your final resting place. So what say you Undertaker? Will you answer me? Will you accept my challenge?

Wyatt drops to his knees in the ring.

Wyatt – Come on Undertaker! Come out, come out, wherever you are.

Wyatt back to his feet.

Wyatt – Where are you? Ah, we play this game again. Or is it this? Is this how we do it? Is this how I bring you back? All of your power locked inside a jar. Hahahaha! But can this urn bring back the dead?

Wyatt takes the urn, removes the top, then looks into it. At first he looks scared, then laughs. Wyatt returns the urn to the purple covered table.

Wyatt – Surprise, surprise everyone, it is empty! It is empty and shallow and hollow just like...

From the urn in the center of table, smoke starts billowing and Wyatt's words are cut off. On the tron there's lightening! Lights flicker above Wyatt.

Wyatt (off mic) – Bring it to me! Come on! Come on! Where are you? Where are you?

GONG!

Lights go out!

GONG!

GONG!

The lights come up and the table with the urn is gone, instead there's a spotlight on Wyatt's old chair and he's freaking out.

On the tron says WrestleMania, The Man Comes Around.

Taker's voice bellows - You will rest in peace!

GONG!

Lightening strikes the chair. Wyatt laughs hysterically as his chair burns in the center of the ring. Wyatt can barely hold himself on his knees as he laughs.

GONG!

GONG!

GONG!

GONG!

Taker's music plays. Wyatt watches the tron, the fire, then throws his head back to the sky.

Reigns vs Rollins & Orton

Reigns to the ring, on his way down he passed an avid WNW reader and commenter who goes by Eddie Edwards! Video recap of Heyman on the mic from earlier in the night. Rollins out with J&J Security in tow. Orton out, meets Rollins on the stage and they head to the ring together.

Rollins and Orton discuss who will start the match, finally Orton steps back. They lock up, Rollins slammed to the mat. Reigns into a corner. Rollins slammed down. Reigns over the top and out when Rollins pulls the rope. J&J Security over to Reigns, but the ref yells at them. Rollins out, but taken down by Reigns. Orton admonishes J&J Security. Reigns on Rollins in the ring for two.

Rollins with a chop block on Reigns, Noble cheering him on from outside. A flying lariat on Reigns for two.

Reigns choked in the ropes. Rollins distracts the ref, and Noble yells at Orton to do his job. He had an opening and should do his job. Orton punches Noble to the floor. Rollins is pissed and kicks J&J Security out of the ringside area. Reigns all over Rollins. A flying clothesline takes Rollins down. Rollins whipped, but gets a foot up. Reigns with a splash, but Rollins drops and Reigns eats corner. Rollins tries for the tag, but Orton short arms him. Rollins asks what Orton is doing, just playing around, right? Orton throws a Stone Cold Steve Austin salute. The camera drops down below the middle fingers to only show his raised arms after the first moment. Rollins turns around, right into a spear to Rollins for three.

Winner – Reigns (4:08)

Reigns leaves the ring. Orton is still staring at Rollins in the ring. "RKO!" chants. Orton into the ring, as Rollins begs from the mat.

Orton (off mic) – Shame on you! Shame on you for thinking I wasn't going to do something to you. You think that I was just going to fricken stop?

Each of these thoughts punctuated with stiff blows. Rollins tossed over the top and out. A clothesline drops Rollins. Orton sends Rollins into the stairs. Orton tosses off the top layer of the stairs, and lays Rollins torso down on it, holding tight to Rollins hair, keeping him face down on the metal, and slightly shaking Rollins with each thought.

Orton (off mic) – You remember what you did to me? You remember what you did to me? Unfortunately for you, I remember. I remember.

Rollins bounced face first off the stairs. Rollins sent shoulder first into the other stairs as the fans cheer for Orton, cat calling at Orton to destroy Rollins.

Orton (off mic) – You think I'm a part of your family? Are you crazy? Are you crazy? You think for one flippin' second I would join The Authority again? How stupid are you?

Each thought is punctuated by Orton pulling Rollins' hair back hard. Rollins up and into the barricade by the timekeeper's area. Three upper cuts in a row. Pop from the fans for Orton's smile. An upper cut sends Rollins into the area. Rollins tries crawling off through the fans. Orton grabs a chair and slowly follows.

JBL – Randy hasn't gone crazy, Randy has gone Randy.

Orton winds up and slams the flat of the chair on Rollins' back. Rollins crawls more, Orton catches up and hits him again with the chair. The third chair shot to Rollins was when he was on his back, looking like it was to his arm or torso, but really only hit the floor. Rollins up, trying to flee, gets the top of the chair to the gut, then the flat of the chair to his back.

Orton (off mic) – Who do you think I am? You don't know me Seth! I'm going to show you who I am. (Then, barely audibly.) I'm gonna show you who I am.

Rollins pulled up by his hair. Upper cut to Rollins. Rollins to the barricade, trying to struggle over. Orton grabs him, sets Rollins up, and nails his DDT with Rollins coming from the top of the barricade.

Orton (off mic) – I wasn't going to stand by and let you get away with...

Orton pounds the floor with both hands. Rollins is bleeding from a welt or something on his back. Rollins isn't moving and Orton sees announce. Rollins pulled up, and Orton sends Rollins over the table, not even touching the table, but landing against one of the chairs and the barricade. Orton starts disassembling the table. Orton tosses a monitor aside really hard. The second monitor was tossed into the side of the apron, and pieces flew off from it.

Orton gets Rollins up on announce, and Rollins is little more than a rag doll.

Orton – You thought I was just gonna let it go?

Orton hits a perfect RKO on Rollins. The table breaks perfectly, and they both seem to land perfectly.

Orton – It's only just begun!

">
  • So, the big question of the night, will Brock actually appear tonight?

    • Andrew

      id say yes but anything is possible with him

      • He was supposed to a few weeks ago and stomped out, so I’m playing the believe it when I see it game.

        • Andrew

          yeah im in that same boat as well

          • As if I wasn’t disgusted enough with the man, he pulls this crap. He’s really a piece of work.

          • Andrew

            yeah definately agree with you on that

  • Eddie Edwards

    Hi everyone! Guess where I am?!?!

    • Andrew

      hmmm…. raw!

    • CJ Blaze

      Looks like great seats! Have fun!!

      • Eddie Edwards

        I’m sitting on the end isle were Reigns comes through. I’m gonna mark out so bad lol

        • CJ Blaze

          Nice! The Shield walked right past me a year ago at a live event. I touched Dean Ambrose lol.

          • CJ, did you swoon?

          • CJ Blaze

            Maybe 🙂

          • Andrew

            I would pay to see that CJ

          • Andrew

            Did you get unhinged?

          • CJ Blaze

            I marked out like crazy. Haha

        • Epic! What are you wearing? Anything specific to look for so we know it’s you?

          Also, if you are seen on TV, let me know before I post the RIB (I’m on FB under the same name), so I can drop something in.

          • Eddie Edwards

            I’ll be the big tall guy wearing a Hounds of Justice shirt and Pirates ball Cap jumping up and down like a little kid lol (ok maybe no jumping)

          • I’ll be watching!

    • Kick ass!

  • CJ Blaze

    Hey yo, brother!

    • Andrew

      eyyy!

      • CJ Blaze

        It’s Monday night once again!

        • Andrew

          yes!!

  • CJ Blaze

    I haven’t seen any reports of Sheamus returning tonight, so I say tonight may be the night. Hoping to see The Undertaker, too.

    • Andrew

      i think sheamus will be on tonight and at least taker will show up on titontron

    • I’m calling for lightening, video on the tron, or something of that ilk. I’m guessing we won’t actually see Taker this week with Block there.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Only good ol’ Uncle Bill… (Thanks to Heelbook!)

  • Zoltan L Williams Jr.

    Only three Raws left! I got my tickets to Wrestlemania!!! I honestly cannot wait any longer lol

  • CJ Blaze

    Wiz Khalifa. Shoot. Me.

    • Yeah, not at all impressed by this.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      At least WWE is having him perform tonight instead of at Mania.

      • CJ Blaze

        I do like that fact.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, yes, I’m here guys! I’ve had a big family crisis this week, and am currently on mobile due to issues beyond my control, but I will be joining full force as soon as possible!

    • ldb

      best wishes to you. glad your able to make it in one form or another

    • Andrew

      Easy OL I GOT THIS!!!

  • Yo

  • I may have to see if I can get May 9th off from work and go to louisville for a trip the day after my birthday.

  • Scott

    Gonna laugh my ass off if the crowd starts a “Thanks for coming” chant on Lesnar lol

  • CJ Blaze

    “WWE fan Connor Michalek to receive first-ever Warrior Award at 2015 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony”

    • Andrew

      thats really awesome

    • awesome

    • That is fantastic!

    • Sounds like he will be inducted into the HOF as well.

      • CJ Blaze

        I don’t think so, just the award.

        • It’s a great way to honor an amazing little boy who touched so many hearts.

        • http://www.wwe.com/classics/wwe-hall-of-fame/connor-michalek-warrior-award-2015-27168837

          “Connor Michalek had a profound impact on so many people,” said McMahon. “His spirit and love of life were so strong, you would have never known he was sick. I can think of no better way to honor Connor, than by recognizing him with our highest honor, the first fan to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, as a Warrior”

          • CJ Blaze

            Oh, must be another “wing” in the HOF.

  • ldb

    Im looking forward to Axlemania running wild on Rusev tonight. The Axe man Cometh…and hes’ coming for the title shot. Whatcha gonna do brother

    • Axelmania is running mild!

      • ldb

        I just can’t help it. For some reason I like this Axel. He’s actually entertaining,…and the best royal rumbler ever.

        • I’m thrilled with what Axel is doing. Finally he’s heading in the right direction, and showing more charisma than he’s ever shown. He has the ring skills, but has been so epically boring – until now. I’m thrilled for him.

  • Moose

    Evening folks!

  • Andrew

    orton and rollins vs reigns tonight

    • That will be fun, especially with how they’re running Orton helping and hurting Rollins. Maybe they’re going to set up for them to face off at WM after issues in this match?

      • Andrew

        yep im pretty sure thats whats going to happen

  • Mike McCarthy

    Bad News Barrett vs. Daniel Bryan tonight. Is this where we see Sheamus finally return?

    • Andrew

      hopefully so

    • No because Sheamus will end up returning in the Battle Royal

  • Eddie Edwards

    JBL!

  • It’s go time!

  • Scott

    Sure hope SOMETHING epic happens tonight

  • Eddie Edwards

    Seth Rollins

  • Moose

    The guys doing these recap/hype videos are earning their money.

  • We could have done it On a tree!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    *trot trot trot* looks like I’m right on time!…or too early, since that means I get the…pleasure of seeing Wiz something.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Wiz in his pants?

  • Eddie Edwards

    HUGE heat on Show

  • Moose

    I see Big Show is partaking in some Just for Men on his beardage.

  • ldb

    Big Show rocking the just for gray on the goatee

  • It’s ignorant people like you that make me punch windshields.

  • Has Big Show died his beard? It’s looking very dark

  • Jamie Noble can’t trust Randy Orton.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Any segment where Noble has lines gets bonus points.

  • ldb

    I love Jamie noble thats freaking great. Seth is killing it

  • Moose

    “J&J Public Speaking”

  • CJ Blaze

    And then an RKO outta nowhere.

  • Seth is definitely the best heel in the company right now.

    • Moose

      Hands down!

      • He needs to be the one feuding with Reigns after Wrestlemania.

  • ldb

    I wish John Stewart would get to come back he was on last week with seth

  • Andrew

    the moment orton turns will be great especially the pop he will get

    • Mike McCarthy

      Whoa whoa whoa, Big Show’s in the ring. You can never conclude that he won’t be the one turning.

      • Andrew

        true lol

      • Moose

        He’s turned twice already.

      • Andrew

        He wears both faces at once a true talent of Big Show

    • Andrew

      Yeah Orton’s a real viper lol

  • Andrew

    I’m here…. Ya miss me?

    • CJ Blaze

      Of course!

    • Moose

      This two Andrews thing makes my brain throb.

      • Andrew

        Where two great forces collide moose lol

        • Moose

          Yes!

  • What heart? Orton doesn’t have one.

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Should I just get the Zing combo count ready?

    • Andrew

      Yes please do, we’ll need it and a turn counter

  • Super ZInger!

  • woah. the b word wasn’t censored. O_O

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Oh goody, we can say @#$% the PG rating!

    • Andrew

      I can’t wait…

    • Moose

      The road to Wrestlemania has a detour around the rating each year it seems.

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        I have zero complaints with that. Being PG while Wiz Khalifa is on was not happening.

  • ron

    Beat Orton promo in awhile. Really liking it

    • Andrew

      It’s nice to see a real champ on the mic and not a Disney Mouseketeer

  • Scott

    Kane looks pissed!

  • CJ Blaze

    My prediction for tonight was to see Daniel Bryan vs. Stardust in a qualifying match, but I think we can rule that out.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Bryan faces Barrett tonight.

      • CJ Blaze

        Yep, which should be good.

        • Mike McCarthy

          I’m hoping this is where we finally see Sheamus. Whether it’s setting up Sheamus/Bryan at ‘Mania or adding the two to the ladder match.

    • ron

      I would say they are both being pushed it is not like DB is being buried or anything. He still gets as much if not the most TV time as anyone

  • Scott

    Such a shame they are pushing Reigns when Bryan is clearly the most over

  • Moose

    I like DBs 90’s HBK length hair.

  • ldb

    Looks like they are actually making an attempt to make the IC belt matter. I like it.

    • Mike McCarthy

      I think they’ve made it seem like a bigger deal headed into ‘Mania but booking it well at just one ppv isn’t gonna help it.

      • ldb

        absolutely but its a start in the right direction.

    • Andrew

      It deserves it the way Russia deserves to be buried

  • I find it funny theyhave taken the Hot Potato thing and made it a storyline

  • Scott

    Is anyone else seeing the Juicy Fruit armpit fart commercial?!?!? Hilarious!!!!

    • Andrew

      Not as fun as tag with Stewart, but agreed.

  • R-Truth is slowly turning into someone interesting again.

    • ldb

      He’s good on commentary.

    • Andrew

      He makes hilarious commentary

      • He’s acting a bit like when he had those conspiracy theories, he plays a good whacko

        • Moose

          “Plays”

          • Andrew

            Everybody has too play to there strong suite moose.

          • Moose

            He “plays” crazy a little too well. I’m not complaining though. I find him entertaining.

  • The IC ladder match is an excellent way to do a 10 year anniversary of the first MITB match.

  • ldb

    Wade Barrett stole the Black Mamba cape from Mega Mind

    • Andrew

      He needed a cape to feel better about himself after being tied up? Just a guess.

      • ldb

        its better than the stupid dress jacket with the rose he used to have.

  • Truth is scared of Spiders.

    • Andrew

      Don’t let him near Wyatt then…

    • Mike McCarthy

      Spiders and heights cost Truth every ladder match ever.

  • 20 days to Sting costume.

  • ldb

    I m so anxious to see taker return its killing me. He and Bray ‘s promos will be epic.

    • Andrew

      Taker won’t speak he’ll just stare the Eater down into that coffin that Bray made… For himself.

    • Moose

      So epic it’ll make you forget about Brock appearing two weeks ago… oh wait.

      • Andrew

        He was there?

        • ldb

          so say he was there, others say he wasn’t, still some think he’s ghost that can’t be seen or tied to one place. I just can’t help but think about my Lincoln….quote matthew Conaughey

          • Andrew

            Gone and… Forgotten lol

          • Moose

            I hate those Lincoln commercials. I like Lincolns, however.

          • ldb

            yeah that spoof on snl was classic.

  • Avalanchian

    So does Axelmania get a win over Rusev tonight thanks to Cena?

    • ldb

      thats what I say. gotta make rusev mad enough to grant the match.

  • Nothing is sadder then a white guy trying to act a black.

    • Andrew

      White men can’t jump or act. Smh

  • By all fairness Bryan should have beat Barrett he is higher on the card after all.

  • Andrew

    dont get me started on “Farm Animal” smh

  • Evening all! Just got home and starting from beginning!

    • Andrew

      Evening Jason!

    • Andrew

      How goes it?

  • Just add Bryan to the match now.

  • Avalanchian

    Ambrose!!

  • A Match following a match. a novel concept.

    • Moose

      Blasphemy!

      • Andrew

        HOW DARE THEY?!? *GASP

  • Mike McCarthy

    Ambrose vs. Stardust I think

    • CJ Blaze

      You’re right.

    • Andrew

      Crazy versus unhinged

  • Who do we reckon will end up with the IC title tonight?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Harvey Whippleman.

  • Avalanchian

    Insert Golddust to this match at some point.

  • Xavier

    What’s good everyone. I missed the first 30mins. What I miss?

    • Moose

      Welcome!

    • Andrew

      Viper cut a promo made Rollins feel like a Mouseketeer lol

    • ron

      Best Orton promo is years maybe ever. Definitely worth going back and watching before their match tonight if you can

      • Andrew

        Totally agree they even got rid of the censor

      • Xavier

        Nice, I’ll definitely have to go back and watch

    • Andrew

      Doing good Xavier?

      • Xavier

        I’m hanging in there as always

        • Andrew

          Good to hear I hope upright, upside down sucks.

  • Moose

    So does R-Truth get double TV bonus for being in on during two matches?

  • ldb

    what happened to the Goldust, stardust, dusty saga?

    • It got lost in the no one cares pile of stories

      • ldb

        what I was afraid of . They did it a year too late , and got lost half way through it at that. Nice Job creative.

        • Too scared to pull the trigger when they were hot.

          • David F

            Cody def has tools to move up card. hopefully after mania he can drop stardust gimmick

          • I hope so for his sake because the Stardust gimmick is going to get him nowhere

    • CJ Blaze

      Just wait till the end of this match.

  • Joseph James

    This is a decent match so far

  • Moose

    Do you think R-Truth would still hear voices in his headset even if it was unplugged?

    • Andrew

      Yeah just like Orton

  • Xavier

    I’m loving the build for the IC match

  • CJ Blaze

    R-Truth – perhaps the best thing about this whole story.

    • Xavier

      You have a good point

    • Andrew

      Hey every match has it’s selling point

    • Moose

      I know the odds are low, but I would love to see him win the title.

      • Xavier

        Same here buddy

  • Joseph James

    Picking intercontinental potatoes.

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I really like this buildup! Especially since you know there’s a bag swap.

  • Xavier

    LMAO @R-Truth

  • Andrew

    haha!

  • ldb

    MIZDOW’s stunt title AWESOME

  • Xavier

    #PutTruthOver

    • Andrew

      On the announce table?

      • Xavier

        Nope, in the ladder match

        • Andrew

          But he’s afraid of heights and spiders, isn’t he?

        • Andrew

          I like him on either makes JBL tolerable .

  • Andrew

    All this talk of potatoes makes me think of a certain Irishman

  • Andrew

    wow i love this

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I’m gonna keep my opinion silent on the induction of Connor. That seems like a terrible topic piece.

  • Eddie Edwards

    BNB walked right by me!

    • Andrew

      Did he have any good news for once?

      • Eddie Edwards

        No he seemed kind of mad haha

        • Andrew

          Being tied down would sucki bet.

    • CJ Blaze

      I figured he did!

  • CJ Blaze

    He is the best.

  • ldb

    Thats an amazing story. Nice job by wwe on this.

    • Andrew

      Just another way the E shows it does have the heart of a warrior.

  • Xavier

    Very touching story

  • Scott

    Ok not afraid to admit it…..im all teared up!

    • Andrew

      I just love that he told AJ to stop her crazyness

  • Dustyn

    Definitely well deserved!

  • Very nice. glad they are doing that for him.

  • Xavier

    I’m looking forward to a Reigns/Lesnar staredown finally.

    • Andrew

      I’m all for that. Totally

  • Joseph James

    Oh snap. Brock’s out next.

    • CJ Blaze

      just so he doesn’t leave again haha.

      • Moose

        If Brock just up and left and we were still in the standard def. days, would they do a fake Brock like they did fake Diesel/Razor?

        • CJ Blaze

          Haha that would be something.

          • Andrew

            And not out of the realm of possibility.

          • ldb

            maybe they could do a mini brock like they did with Hart, and Taker

    • Andrew

      But will we see him or will he wilt under the hate?

  • Time for Heyman to work his magic and make people want to see Reigns kick Brock’s Ass

    • ldb

      Heyman’s so good he once sold oil to OPEC

      • Andrew

        But he can’t sell Block over too some…

      • he sold Ice to an Eskimo.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Damnit WWE… Why’d you have to make me cry?

    • Andrew

      Jesse my feed cut out be back in a flash step

    • Craig Harrison

      Your not the only one pal and not ashamed to admit it.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    LADIES AND GENTLEMEN….

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I really need to get his other books! I have all four of Mick’s, but only one of Jericho’s.

  • Moose

    Just Paul?

  • Is there a Cage above the ring?

  • Rosey & Umaga not good enough to deserve being in that montage of his family?

  • Moose

    I think WWE finally found their version of Bryant Gumble.

    • Xavier

      Or the Coach 2.0

      • Thank you Truth.

        • Andrew

          Can I thank Truth just for being more entertainment?

      • Moose

        Good point.

  • Is it live or Memorex?

  • At least he remembered the title this time

    • Moose

      Wow.

      • Great minds 😉

        • Moose

          Yes sir.

  • Moose

    Well, he remembered the belt this time.

  • Dustyn

    New entrance graphics for Lesnar

  • Xavier

    Glad the douche decided to join us tonight. Heyman is amazing on the mic but nothing can build this match like an actual encounter between Reigns & Brock.

  • CJ Blaze

    Hey, the title showed up!

    • Mike McCarthy

      Is that what that thing he’s carrying is?

      • CJ Blaze

        I don’t know, could be the Divas Championship 😉

  • Avalanchian

    Brock should get a custom title with Jimmy Johns on it to carry around in the WWE.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Actually Paul, he beat 28 other superstars. #OftenImitatedNeverEliminated

    • Andrew

      No he’s not ready- at all… Total Sarcasm

      • Mike McCarthy

        Axel’s the one that belongs in the main event against Brock Lesnar.

        • Andrew

          I misheard I think my Sat cut out.

  • Someone shut the walrus up. I want to hear squeaky.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Paul’s crushing it once again.

  • Promo so good it broke the mIcrophone!

  • Now they’re just turning his mic off on purpose!

    • Craig Harrison

      I wondered that. I think he’s told be controversial and we’ll cut the mic if you go too far.

  • Xavier

    LMAO another bad mic?

    • Andrew

      He likes the sound of his own voice so much the mic’s rebel!

  • Moose

    Mic tapped out LOL!

  • UFC Mention!

    • Xavier

      Brock wants no part of Cain Velsaquez

      • Nope. nor Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones either.

    • Andrew

      Rowsey still probably TKO’s him in under the 30 second mark.

      • She doesn’t knock people out. she just makes them tap out or breaks their arms.

        • Andrew

          All the more reason to stay away.

          • David F

            and Rhonda breaks their ribs too

  • Peteya56

    Damn Paul is on fire….

  • Joseph James

    I’m sold.

  • The Ignored Monster

    This is awesome

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Good god I love Paul on the mic!

  • Xavier

    We need some type of staredown between the two atleast

    • Peteya56

      We do. We really do.

  • ron

    Like that they are acknowledging the UFC and everything about Brock. The new Kayfabe

  • Xavier

    Amazing promo though

  • The Answer is Bork Laser

    • Andrew

      I just saw the Swedish Chef with potatoes lol

  • CJ Blaze

    I could listen to Paul talk the entire three hours.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Instead of doing a live show they should just have Paul sit in front of a camera and read the script.

      • CJ Blaze

        They should’ve done that the night after Royal Rumble when it was snowed out!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I can’t handle this much amazing promo work. Also that Brock guy is there.

    • ldb

      Brock’s only good line was “Hey Paul say something stupid.”

  • “What’s he going to do to Roman Reigns?” “Brock Lesnar”…

  • Moose

    He’s not looking with intensity. He looked bored.

    • Andrew

      That’s his default.

  • Xavier

    Great promo but I’m disappointed we didn’t get some type of interaction between Reigns & Lesnar

    • Mike McCarthy

      We’ve been waiting too long for them to get physical.

      • Thanks, now I have Olivia Newton-John going through my head!

    • Peteya56

      hopefully at the end of the night, we get that face to face

    • Moose

      Why have an “appearance” if you don’t use it effectively? They could have easily had a staredown.

      • Xavier

        Agreed

      • Andrew

        WWE sticking it to the universe since awhile back.

  • ldb

    Brock wants Mir. Carwin says he’ll come out of retirement for Brock. I think he ll go UFC

  • Avalanchian

    Please Undertaker show up or some promo. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease

  • Mike McCarthy

    They were really heavily teasing Undertaker on the Pre-Show.

  • Joseph James

    Think Taker’s in the house?

    • Mike McCarthy

      Yes.

    • Scott

      Sure hope so but Im not getting my hopes up. In sure itll just be spooky stuff with an answer to Brays challenge

  • The Ignored Monster

    I got a bad feeling Paul Heyman will leave Wwe with Lesnar if he does. Which is why he’s going insane in his promos knowing he’s leaving anyway. Or he’s just doing a great job at being the only one to sell the match.

    • Xavier

      Possibly.

    • Andrew

      I still think Stewart could sell too bad he went to take over a news desk.

  • Hope we don’t get a repeat of the Rumble with Kane & Show in that battle royal. But then again who really cares about the match anyway?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Absolutely no one. It’ll bury whomever wins it… So I hope Fandango wins!

      • Wouldn’t it be ironic if Axel won and elevated him to the top.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          It would be.

      • Andrew

        I can’t believe I agree for once.

  • I hope Rowan gets some support after Wrestlemania. He could be a big time character if he gets some support.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      WWE needs to bring in Father James Mitchell for him, like we discussed earlier!

      • Andrew

        yes!

  • Moose

    Everytime Big Show runs the ropes, I cringe thinking they will break.

    • ldb

      so do they

      • Jesse Sherwood

        +3000 points!

        • ldb

          YES! thanks

  • Scott

    IF Taker shows up Ill freak out if its The American Badass or something similar.

    • Moose

      I hope they keep the Deadman.

    • Avalanchian

      Undertaker becomes Death!!!! And you can’t kill death

    • I will cry if The American Badass ever returns. and this is not a good thing.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It won’t be. Why mess with the Deadman now? Granted, I love Big Evil as much as the next guy, but he’s in the twilight of his career. Let him go out as he is best known.

      • I hated the biker gimmick. It seemed like a bad Mid-life crisis.

        • Andrew

          Monks were better, but it’s still Taker.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I enjoyed it for what it was, and for the You’re Gonna Pay theme. I still sing part of it frequently!

  • CJ Blaze

    Who turns first?

  • Xavier

    I really hope we don’t have to see Big Show/Kane at WM

    • They are already announced in the Battle Royal.

      • Andrew

        True , but I’m tired of the petty feuds.

  • Moose

    They can’t stop smiling LMAO!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Here comes the Queen!

  • ldb

    Steph does a great brock impression

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yeah… She sounded very Nancy like there!

  • Moose

    Her dress sure looks…. strong.

  • Well with Show & Kane gone, Orton’s gonna take out Rollins

    • Andrew

      You called it I can’t wait for the RKO to set Rollins in his place

  • ron

    The queen is looking Good tonight

    • Xavier

      Yes she is

    • Craig Harrison

      I informed my other half she is on the free pass list lol.

  • Mike McCarthy

    This is so setting up Orton turning on Rollins.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    NIAGRA!!!

    • Moose

      YES!!!

  • Niagara!

  • ldb

    MIZDOW is pure gold

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Please, can we get this match TONIGHT?!?!

  • Joseph James

    Lmao

  • Moose

    Hey look, Cheese Wiz.

  • Xavier

    Khalifa look like Jimi Hendrix lol

    • Andrew

      Looks emphasis there

  • Mike McCarthy

    WIZDOW

  • Wizdow!

  • Miz & Wiz. Sounds like a new pill is coming for those that have problems in the bathroom.

  • Avalanchian

    Damn Wizdow on fire

  • Wizdow Brok Miz LOL

  • Scott

    Wizdow!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Did Snoop Dogg destroy his hair and get tats?

  • Xavier

    Mizdow got bars

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wizdow spitting it HOT!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Miz & Mizdow deserve a singles match at ‘Mania.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      OH MY BROTHER…. TESTIFY!

    • ldb

      Please apply 1000 up votes here.

    • ron

      Don’t see it yet. As everyone is going to be upset when the Miz wins the first match btwn them. The ATG battle royal will kick off the program which I hope runs through at least 2 or 3 PPVs. As much as mizdow is over. You got to give it to the Miz for making this happen. The program would not be as over without him playing his part to the T. And his is the harder part to play.

  • ldb

    Maybe Taker kidnaps Bray’s little brother Bo. Do you Bolieve?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I Bolieve Bo should just leave WWE.

      • I bolieve that Bo is not bad

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Bo botches more than Cameron, Summer Rae, and Rosa combined. I hope he never returns.

          • I really do like bo. I don;t really care about botches.

        • Andrew

          He needs to become a disciple of the Eater of Souls. So, so, sorry Taker

      • I Bolieve that Bo is Boloody awful and should Bougger off too

    • Moose

      Then, would immediately bring his annoying ass back.

  • Seems HD feed has a couple second delay on SD feed…..

  • Mike McCarthy

    oh my god still no date for Sheamus.

  • Wouldn’t it be interesting if SHeamus got a new theme.

    • Dustyn

      You mean no more “Lobster Head”? ; )

  • CJ Blaze

    Already used my bathroom break, ugh.

  • Intermission?

  • Mike McCarthy

    Wouldn’t it make sense for him to do the song he made with JOHN CENA!?!?! Just a thought.

  • BlackLotus

    ive got this crap on mute right now.

    • Andrew

      At least it’s not Kanye Lotus, Yeezy thinks he’s a Black God.

  • Scott

    Im sorry but this is just bad……….

  • Moose

    Who is Wiz again?

    • Not sure, but he makes some good cheese.

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    F*skull face*CK OFF WIZ!

  • Andrew

    I’m just saying why not rebrand Bo under the new. NXT trainer?

  • Avalanchian

    Wiz looks like that skinny guy from Road Trip

    • Jesse Sherwood

      A malnourished Snoop!

      • Avalanchian

        That also

      • Andrew

        I bless the rains in Africa!!!!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Gotta love some Toto!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Am I the only one that remembers this is a PG show?

    • Rating seems to be lapsed for Wrestlemania season.

  • Moose

    I’m gonna take a wiz while… well… you get it.

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Let me see if my Baltimore can come out…

    This stupid little punk ass poser is just there because he got a nice paycheck, he doesn’t care about why he’s here. Him and his stupid ass John Cena tank top have no business on OUR show.

    • ldb

      come on man. You gotta use the bathroom and buy food sometime.

    • Krosario23

      Take it easy man its entertainment if u don’t like change the channel. Wrestling is for everyone.

    • Andrew

      Hey- he needs too eat clearly and Rollins did say he could rap like Wiz… I feel ya but hey blame Seth

  • Scott

    Wow this is still going!?!?!?

  • Andrew

    i rather be watching some wrastlin right now…

  • Moose

    THIS is the answer to give Divas a chance.

    • No. their answer was to induct the one responsible for killing the division in the first place into the HOF.

      • Xavier

        Who Conner?

        • Alyundra Blaze AKA Medusa

          • Xavier

            How did she kill the division, Trish, Lita, Victoria, Jazz all came after her

          • yes they did but really the division didn’t get a chance then It was just Lita and Trish got so over they got the chance. The women otherwise were an afterthought.

  • Scott

    If he takes his pants off Im out

  • Love that the crowd is booing him

  • And the crowd go mild with excitement!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    And now back to the show you actually wanted to see!

  • ldb

    I always find it weird when I m at work and JBL shows up on Fox news.

  • Xavier

    Very light on the comments tonight I see

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Oh Freya, that was pathetic…

  • Mike McCarthy

    Loving those outfits

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Only redeeming part of that whole segment.

      • Mike McCarthy

        That and hearing Brie say “Yabba dabba doo”

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Oh for the love of…why did I even turn this show on?!

  • ldb

    I love Paige and AJ…And Lana and Naomi, ..

  • The Bella’s chins go on forever, you never really notice until they’re sideways

  • Jesse Sherwood

    SUMMER RAE DUDLEY!

    • Xavier

      Rolls off the tongue

      • Jesse Sherwood

        She’d be perfect to manage them if they ever came back full time. Like Torrie did for a while!

        • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

          Wasn’t that Stacy?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It was! I got mixed up because they put Torrie through a table.

        • She would be a great Sunny in this era.

  • Krosario23

    Wrestlemania season but it doesn’t feel like wrestlemania type of raw

    • Xavier

      I agree. 3 of the major matches on the card haven’t had any tye of interaction between the two guys wrestling. That’s why I’m over all this “bringing back the part-timers” BS

  • Xavier

    I really wish Kharma would of worked out. She’d work circles around the divas today. This is terrible

  • Is it just me or does AJ just look like she’s phoning it in?

    • Ashley

      I think she has looked like that for well over a year…

    • AJ isn’t as good as people think she is.

      • I know she’s not the best, but she usually looks a lot better than she did tonight

      • Xavier

        Amen

        • tim

          It cracks me up, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but this always happens. Everyone is for a certain diva or superstar and once too many people start liking that person the “cool” IWC members are all, “yeah I don’t see what everyone sees in so in so.” “Ugh, like he/she is so overrated.” You never stop amusing me IWC.

    • Xavier

      She always looked like she was phoning it in to me. I never thought she was as good as her fans made her out to be in the first place though

  • Andrew

    Yeah. Still like Brits

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Black Widow! Boy, I’ve missed that!

    • Andrew

      You just miss the crazy

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No, Josh has it, I missed seeing her spanked!

        • Andrew

          OH BEHAVE!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Stay away from my mojo baby! YEAH BABY YEAH!

          • Andrew

            And now I can only think of Diablo

          • AJ is all 6’s and 7’s

    • She just wants to have her ass spanked.

  • Will Sting be in the ring or is this going to be recorded?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Recorded. I seriously doubt it’d be live with no advertisement.

      • Scott

        He wasnt advertised the last time he showed up on Raw

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yes, there’s a difference in showing to mess with the main event and a full blown promo. That would be a huge, ticket selling event for WWE.

  • Scott

    Sting there in person tonight?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I’d crap myself if I ever drove or rode in a car parachuting out of a plane. That’s crazy!

  • ldb

    cardiology students everywhere celebrate the bacon wrapped pizza….job security

  • Andrew

    He speaks!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And it so isn’t Sting talking!

    • Moose

      More like a sick John Cena.

  • The Real Sting still hasn’t spoken.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Jumpin’ Jeff Farmer Promo!

  • Xavier

    This is what happens when you have 3 part timers in 3 of your major matches at Mania. Lack luster build

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    So…why couldn’t Sting himself just talk?

    • Doesn’t fit wit the character

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because it had to be creepier. BAKA!

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        I look forward to Kane coming out as Underfaker next. *sigh*

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Way to blatantly read from the script Cole…

    • Andrew

      right smh

  • ldb

    Axlemania next boys

  • BlackLotus

    If Sting actually did the talking that promo would have been so much better.

  • Nick

    the Wrestlemania build this year is just …….EHHHHHHH

  • Xavier

    Mercia *in my Bernie Mac voice*

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Midcard Cena > Main Event Cena

  • Moose

    Well gents, I’m out. This new dayshift thing and the time change has whipped my tail today. Yall have fun and take care.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night Moose! Have fun dreaming of Cena grappling with… Guys? FILL IN THE BLANK!

      • Moose

        Thanks for that…

      • with Amy Schumer? That trailer gives me nightmares

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I still can’t believe Dolph slept with that…

          • I can’t believe anyone sleeps with that, or gives it a job for that matter

    • Xavier

      Aight bro. Have a goodnight

  • Cena is being prepped for being phased out as the top face.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And I think he is adapting to the transition very well.

      • Yes. We may even get that mythical Heel turn as a result too.

    • Xavier

      Yup. Reigns is on deck. Cena heel turn coming within the next year

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, who is Rusev’s victim tonight? I vote RYDER!

    • Axelmania

    • Avalanchian

      Axelmania gets the upset over Rusev

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I hope so! Axel deserves this win!!!

  • Curtis Axel having Hogan as a manager might be great for him.

  • Joseph James

    Lol. I wanna see Axel and Hogan in a hulk off. Like Flair and Jay lethal.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      YES!!!

    • Andrew

      That may hurt Hogan his back is pretty messed up

  • Jesse Sherwood

    AXELMANIA IS RUNNING WILD BROTHERS!

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      Weeeelll…

    • Avalanchian

      And in the blink of an eye it’s gone

      • Jesse Sherwood

        BAKA!

  • Xavier

    AxelMania over before it starts. Oh well

    • *Insert South Park Meme here*

      • Xavier

        LMFAO.

    • Andrew

      No one predicted that, right? Lol

      • Xavier

        Lol I never saw it coming 🙂

        • Andrew

          Yeah cause we IWC are just in our parents basements thanks trips

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Lana trying to get him to stop! Lana is scared of CENA CRUSH!

  • ron

    Could there be a start to a rift with Lana and the beast

  • Jesse Sherwood

    No music! I like it!

  • Xavier

    Is this how Cena will get his match

    • ron

      Yep

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This may be Cena’s best STF yet!

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      That’s a rather short list.

      • ron

        You must not have watched much of his first 3-4 years

  • Submission match at Wrestlemania.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      YES! YES! YES!

  • The Ignored Monster

    Wow he actually put the STF on right!!

  • Xavier

    I love pissed off cranky Cena

    • Andrew

      Thugonomics at its finest now go Rocky- I mean Cena…

  • Avalanchian

    He quit

  • Avalanchian

    He’s tapping!

  • RUTHLESS!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    RUTHLESS AGGRESSION!!!

    • Andrew

      I WILL TAKE IT TOO HIM, THAT IS HOW I BEAT RUSEV!!!

  • Avalanchian

    This is the ruthless Cena we want to see

  • Xavier

    Cena/Rusev along with the IC match have been by far the best things going for WM so far

    • Andrew

      I love the fact that they are restoring luster to belts of old.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Rusev is selling it like a BEAST!

  • Avalanchian

    Cena should have applied it again after she gave in

  • Andrew

    i love the look on cenas face!

    • Andrew

      Agreed better half.

      • Andrew

        hahah

  • Cena as US champ and Bryan as IC champ could be huge for those titles.

  • Cena’s best moment in a looong time!

  • Scott

    I like Cena when hes not in the main event!!!

  • I’m going to try to talk someone into taking me to the WWE Show on May 9th in Kentucky. The onlything that worries me is it’s one of those split shows and so I’ll probably not see the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      What city is it running against?

      • Charleston, WV. Reigns, Rollins, and Orton are advertised there while I’ll get Bryan, Cena, and Dean Ambrose.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yeah, you aren’t getting the WWEWHC. You’ll have both midcard titles, which will probably be the better action.

  • Xavier

    Cena going heel in the next 12-16 months if Reigns goes over well for the rest of the year

    • ron

      Not sure about a true heel but maybe a tweener. I think as he gets edgier and closer to a heal the crowd will start to cheer him again. Sort of like Orton now

      • Xavier

        It’s gotta be full blown heel. Being a tweener won’t have much of an impact. A Reigns/Cena program could be huge next year

  • Xavier

    I hope Vince plans on turning the New Day heel as originally planned.

  • Funny to think Kofi was so close to the top, now he’s pretty much at the bottom

  • ldb

    Cesaro Saturn with the towl on the head. I love this team w / Nattie

  • Jesse Sherwood

    My Russian is a bit rusty, but basically it came down to Rusev chastising Lana for giving into Cena, Lana apologizing and saying that she had no choice, he would have injured Rusev otherwise, and Rusev telling her she disgusts him and to get out of his sight.

    • Andrew

      Yeah facial expression alone, but does that mean the unstoppable machine is well… Stoppable?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Absolutely. Tonight was the Apollo Creed death in Rocky 4. Axel was a very pale Apollo!

        • Xavier

          LMAO

  • Andrew

    Does this mean the Usos are over?

  • Scott

    The New Day was sooooooo last year man………

  • ldb

    that was sorry

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Pathetic, really. BAKA!

      • Andrew

        Kenshin would totally set things right here… Anime wish aside… BAKA BAKA BAKA

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And let’s put more champions under tonight… BAKA!

    • I’m pretty sure the 1 left standing is not going under to anyone.

    • Andrew

      Why?!? It makes no sense there a trio!

      • Freebird rule.

        • Andrew

          That’s a song not an excuse for a bad show.

          • If the trio won the titles they would be able to use the freebrid rule and have any combo of the 3 defend the titles.

          • Andrew

            I know the rule, but thank you. I’m just mad at the bad call

          • I don’t think it was a bad call.

    • Xavier

      It puts over the fact that the tag division is wide open

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    This show has left me grouchy and unattentive, but I will not pass on Undertaker appearing.

  • another Ref Botch.

  • Xavier

    Naomi/Nattie deserved a match at Mania a lot more then AJ/Paige & The Bellas

  • CJ Blaze

    So Nattie takes the title, LOL

  • Tag Team Turmoil?

    • Andrew

      Best title I’ve heard to describe this nonsense

      • It’s not nonsense though. it’s to build the division as a whole.

  • Xavier

    Are we getting some sort of Fatal Four Way tag match at MANIA?

  • CJ Blaze

    Not. Again.

  • This is some weird booking

  • 3 matches in a row? Vince must be napping!

    • Andrew

      He is getting up there in years…

  • Andrew

    enough time for bray ?

  • Xavier

    PTP vs The Ascension coming next? Lol

    • No, it’s going to be a recording of Trish and Lita in a bra and panties match

    • CJ Blaze

      Sin Cara and Kalisto vs. Ascension happened on Superstars, so we’ll see.

      • Xavier

        I hope they bring them up to RAW soon.

        • CJ Blaze

          I hope so too! They went under to Cesaro and Kidd on Main Event I think two weeks ago, and it was a great match.

    • ldb

      they’re lost in the wasteland

  • The Ignored Monster

    Why the need for the multiple team match? Usos vs cesaro and Kidd has enough of a story to have a great match.

    • it’s to put over that anyone has a shot in the tag division right now.

  • Scott

    I am so confused right now. This a Gauntlet Match? Lol

  • ldb

    VOLDEMORT

  • Xavier

    Interesting. Usos & Team Workhorse go under

    • ron

      Makes no sense to me at this point

      • Xavier

        I think it makes sense. WWE trying to put over the fact that the tag division is wide open. Possibly leading to a 4 way tag match at Mania

        • CJ Blaze

          I think it makes sense as well. It’s just one time anyways.

        • Just wish it was better tag teams than New Day & Los Matadores

  • Avalanchian

    Wow…………. Who did the Usos make mad?

    • Xavier

      No one. WWE trying to put over the fact that the tag division is wide open

  • we are getting a 4 team match at Mania. which means the Battle Royal is very likely to have NXT talent in it to fill it up.

    • Xavier

      I’m cool with that

    • I think they should have the Finn Balor vs Kevin Owens match at WrestleMania. Since they’re both likely to get called up soon, what better way to be introduced than at the biggest stage of them all

  • what was up with that shot of the dark arena.

    • Typical when showing a clip

      • but there was no need to do the cut away and show it. That was my point.

        • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

          Botch?

  • kyleferretti

    So it’s not looking like a taker showing after all, huh?

    • kyleferretti

      oh maybe i’m wrong? hm

  • Andrew

    yes!

  • Avalanchian

    Well Bray is next so this will determine if we get a sign of Taker

  • The Ignored Monster

    And of course my satelite goes out because it’s raining!!

    • Andrew

      Same thing happened to me earlier monster, don’t worry I’m not ignoring you.,

      • The Ignored Monster

        Haha

    • Jesse Sherwood

      In the southern midwest too? LOL! We’re getting some nice rain here too.

      • The Ignored Monster

        Yup Louisiana

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Arkansas here man!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Please oh please be gong time. I’ve been waiting.

  • Andrew

    whose everybodys fav nxt wrestler? i like finn balor and sami zayn

    • Mojo Rawley but he hasn’t been on in months.

    • The Ignored Monster

      Kevin Owens

      • Andrew

        I like his no nonsense approach quite a bit.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Balor. I have respect for anyone who places that much detail into their appearance and body of work.

      • Andrew

        So Goldie still a favorite, Jesse?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Absolutely. He is amazing, even though he’s in his 40s.

    • Scott

      Balor

    • CJ Blaze

      Just to different from my obvious picks of Balor and Zayn, I choose Sasha Banks!

  • Regarding Undertaker, if he doesn’t make a presence in some sort tonight, I think they will drag this out until Wrestlemania, then have him show up there to face Bray.

    • Andrew

      Undertaker has nothing to prove he’s doing bray a favor if he shows before WM

  • ldb

    DVR check, fresh water to spit out in shock, check, Taker…..please

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Jesse…I’m gonna mark out. I’m gotta mark out loud. I need to hear the gong!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      GONG! *Druids muttering* GONG! *Lightning flashes, igniting Taker’s cross.* GONG! *Tron flashes with the words Rest in Peace Bray Wyatt.*

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        *instant screaming*

  • Scott

    Keeping fingers crossed……Come on Taker!!!

  • That was a nice little touch doing Bray’s name in fireflies.

    • kyleferretti

      was thinking the same thing

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Come to think of it, I like the development that Bray is driving himself insane hoping to end a man he can’t find.

  • Restlemania? Rare botch by Bray.

  • Xavier

    Hopefully we atleast get a GONG

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    HYPE HYPE HYPE

  • Andrew

    yes!!!!!!

  • YES!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    HYYYYPEEEE

  • Jesse Sherwood

    GONG!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    PURE BLOODY HYPE! I WILL FILL UP OUR COMMENT QUOTA MYSELF IN HYPE

  • Bray has been taking lessons from HHH with that flop.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    GONG!!!

    • Andrew

      The words be careful what you wish on fireflies comes to mind.

  • CJ Blaze

    😀

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BRAY’S CHAIR!

  • Ashley

    Gong!

  • Bray’s rocking chair pair is back.

    • Avalanchian

      It’s gone

  • it just got struck by lighting. Awesome!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Lightning hit the chair!

    • Andrew

      He won’t be needing it where the Deadman is sending him.

  • Avalanchian

    Bray is loving this

  • Andrew

    this is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Andrew

      No, this is awesome- but we are epic!

      • Andrew

        yes!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    AAAAAAHHHHHH!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Man, I’d love to be Windham Rotunda right now!

    • You gotta know he is loving this right now.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Absolutely. I think that is the dream of every person that grew up in the 90s and early 00s who wanted in WWE, to work with the Undertaker, especially at Mania.

        • Add in the fact he is has been around the company is entire life and grew up watching Taker and he is even more incrediblely eager for it.

  • The Demon of death Valley still has his powers.

  • Dustyn

    Very good! Simple but effective!

  • OK, this has been one of the BEST hype ups over the past 2 months!

    • It started so basic, then evolved a little more each week, building up more and more and has just played out perfectly.

    • Andrew

      The monks still pretty high up there for me.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        DRUIDS! Monks are always good aligned. Druids, however…

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I GOT MY GONG!

    • and I got my lighting I wanted 3 weeks ago.

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        Lightning striking, the gong goes off, laughing madman, we even got fire! I am happy. Though ‘Taker sounded live, not sure why he wasn’t *there*.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Because he doesn’t need to appear. He gives off so much of a mystique that just the gong and a recording or sing mic-ed line is enough.

          • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

            Better than a crappy imitator. Hi Sting promo.

        • better for the mind games.

  • Avalanchian

    I want to see more. I want to see Taker bring back Sister Abigail

  • And now it’s time for a 5 minute main event

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The man comes round…

  • In a world of being able to rewind live tv and record etc I think they recap the night far too much

    • Andrew

      International audiences, perhaps?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nope. They just want to fill time, and they think we have a one match memory.

        • Andrew

          So another subtle, YOU SUCK! From WWE… Great.

      • I’m sure most countries has the ability to rewind and etc. I mean do they need to recap what happened before the break? Seems unnecessary unless they’re leading it to promote something

  • Here’s how I see this playing out, Orton turns on Rollins pretty much straight away. Brock comes down and they have a stare down, the end.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rollins has some abuse to do to that case to make it look better than Zigglypuff’s!

    • Andrew

      Orton takes it bashes J&J

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I hope! Noble could use a few more inches knocked off of him.

    • No amount of abuse will make it look worse then Sandow’s after it was thrown in the Gulf of Mexico.

      • Andrew

        But then Sandow got a much more sophisticated briefcase

  • Xavier

    This slow burn between Orton & Rollins has been amazing

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And tonight will see that burn turn to an EXPLOSION! Orton being on SD this week clinches it for me!

      • Andrew

        yes!! him being on smackdown should give it away

  • The WM card is fleshing itself out nicely.

  • Xavier

    J&J gone. Big Show & Kane kicked out. RKO on Rollins coming soon

    • Andrew

      out of nowhere!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        MY GOD! THAT MAN WILL BE BROKEN IN HALF!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    There goes J&J… So Rollins is all alone… *Viper coiled*

  • Short Armed him.

  • Andrew

    yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Xavier

    Rollins so naive

  • Xavier

    Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • Jesse Sherwood

    AUSTIN SALUTE!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Here’s the PG rating for you!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Someone needs to make a meme of Orton and that!

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        The Retro Goat better get his recognition!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          You will! Make it and post it!

  • Clearly not PG so they don’t show the fingers ha

    • Jesse Sherwood

      But they did for a moment! Camera guy is in trouble!

      • Andrew

        Holy frak… I’m speechless

  • CJ Blaze

    Wowzers

  • Xavier

    No Reigns/Lesnar encounter. SMH

  • Avalanchian

    I don’t think Orton strikes

    • Avalanchian

      ok i’m wrong lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Oh, he’s striking!!!

      • Avalanchian

        I wanted 1 more week of earning that total trust

  • Xavier

    Rollins no sold the spear. Wonder if he’ll get called out for that lol

  • Xavier

    Weak finish to RAW. Huge missed opportunity

    • Lebron

      How?! That was the most badass beat down the company has had in years. Both those guys told a helluva story out there. Some of yall are really impossible to please lol.

  • flippin’ second, Randy’s gone PG again

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He can’t afford to be fined again… Oh wait…

      • You could tell he wanted to say the real f word

        • Andrew

          Who me or Orton? Both

          • Orton… or both?

  • Avalanchian

    Let’s see that vicious DDT x2

  • Randy has gone Randy. He has his own level of Crazy.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep! WWE craziness right now goes AJ < Ambrose < R-Truth < Orton < Bray

  • Jesse Sherwood

    OUCH! Seth is going to feel that in the morning!

  • I love that they are letting Randy have his beat down

    • Andrew

      Seth deserves to be humbled.

  • Take the picture!!!!

  • Avalanchian

    DDT time!!!!!!!!!!

  • Not from tonight, but close enough:

    • Refresh to see photo

      • Jesse Sherwood

        +1,000,000 POINTS!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Spike DDT on the floor!

  • Avalanchian

    Yes Randy… Go to that special place

    • Andrew

      He must have a contract with the dead one to do this magnitude of damage

  • Joseph James

    He’s not done

  • The announce table don’t like you Orton. Remember that

  • Avalanchian

    Cole is wrong. Randy hasn’t snapped. This is Randy Orton

  • Xavier

    I can’t believe this is closing RAW and not some type of altercation with Reigns & Lesnar. This is dragging way to long

    • Reigns & Lesnar has been going since the Rumble. This is new and they have 3 weeks to build it.

      • Xavier

        Since the Rumble? They had one staredown and that was almost two months ago. Technically Orton/Rollins been going on since late last year

        • It’s been building since then

          • Xavier

            There has hardly been any building at all. Just Heyman talking. Orton/Rollins been going much longer

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hell of a table toss and sell by Orton and Rollins, respectively!

  • YEAH!

  • CJ Blaze

    WrestleMania 31 will be EPIC.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      May be the best Mania since 20!

  • Andrew

    heck yeah!!

  • Avalanchian

    Now that was the Orton we all know and love (to hate sometimes)

  • ]Now Orton should steal the Briefcase to really stick it to him.

    • Andrew

      I could not agree more

  • Now that’s how you lead up to WM! Good show tonight.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Guys, I am out for the night. Have fun everyone!

    • Xavier

      Stay blessed bro

      • Andrew

        He’ll pray to Wyatt and be fine, be easy brother.

    • Andrew

      goodnight!

  • Andrew

    Yes too must rest in peace unlike Rollins

  • Craig Harrison

    Probably one of the best Raws I’ve seen in a while. Although not sure on the Undertakers answer machine message lol.

    • Andrew

      It spat lightning how much more could you want.

      • Craig Harrison

        Being able to read the thing on the Tron would be good lol.

        • Andrew

          I just read Wyatt ‘s face botch or no- it was somewhere between awe and anticipation; gonna be a truly scary match between a legend and what may become a true presence in the ring as well as on promos.

  • Lebron

    How great has Randy Orton been since his return? His mic work and character has been second to none. Orton is the most under appreciated man in the business. He and Rollins will steal the show at ‘Mania.
