Tonight, at the Manhattan Center, it’s being called as a “must-see” episode of Impact. Bobby Roode will face Bobby Lashley for the World Heavyweight Championship. Also match 3 of the Ultimate Tag Team Battle. The Hardys Vs Team 3-D vs The Wolves. Can the Wolves continue this series, or will we see new World Tag Team champions? And, we have Samoa Joe Vs Homicide for the X-Division Title.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Our first match is the Knockout Battle Royal, to determine the Number One Contender to the Knockout Title.

Taryn Terrell Vs Madison Rayne Vs Angelina Love Vs Velvet Sky Vs Rebel Vs Brittany Vs Havok.

Havok wins, eliminating Velvet Sky as the final woman. Havok will now face Gail Kim for the Knockouts Title.

Tonight, match 3 of the Ultimate Tag Team Series, and Bobby Roode vs Lashley, for the World Title.

Earlier tonight, Bobby Roode entered the building.

2 weeks ago, Gunner and Samuel Shaw lost to Bram and Magnus. Samuel freaked out, over Gunner being hurt. Gunner suggests that Samuel goes to see his therapist. Gunner suggests that he takes Brittany out, and Samuel Shaw has his mind fixated on someone else.

MVP and Kenny King come to the ring.

MVP tells us later tonight, in this ring, the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, “The Destroyer” Lashey will face Bobby Roode, where Lashley destroys his dreams. The headlines will read tomorrow morning “Roode Awakening”. MVP wants to bring out our hometown hero, Chris Melendez.

Here he comes.

MVP just wanted to say Chris is without question an American hero. He wanted to thank him for everything he has done for his country. Chris, with his history is a “killer” and they can kill too. With the right people, Chris can make alot of money.

Kenny assures Chris that he has done well on TV, he can carry their bags.

Chris declines the offer, and Kenny thinks he is disrespecting Kenny.

He wants a match with Melendez, and the match is set.

Melendez wins with a rollup, picking up the win. Kenny lays Melendez out, and dares to take the prostatic knee off, and expose him to the world, but Mr. Anderson comes out, and helps him.

“The Destroyer” Bobby Lashley’s video is now playing.

Backstage, Anderson tells Chris that just because the fans respect you, doesn’t mean the boys in the back will. Chris tells Anderson he is okay.

Payback is coming.

X-Division Title match is up now….Homicide Vs Joe.

Joe wins with the Rear Naked Choke, making Homicide tap out.

Joe shakes Homicide’s hand, and we see Storm lay him out. Homicide fights Storm, and is kicked by The Great Sanada.

Manik comes out in a completely different mask and attire. He hits a Frogsplash on Homicide, with all three men celebrating in the ring.

The Revolution has grown.

JB is with The Wolves. Match 3 is up next, and this is a must-win ladder match. Eddie Edwards says this match is about a legacy, their legacy.

Richards says The Wolves are on even par with the legends, and tonight, their hunt never dies.

Match 3, a ladder match is next.

Still to come tonight, Lashley Vs Roode, for the TNA World Title.

EY checks in with Roode, wishing him luck. Roode is ready, and EY wishes him luck.

Match 3 of the Ultimate Tag Team Series, with The Hardys Vs Team 3-D Vs The Wolves.

The Wolves win the match in what was the best of the series so far. Action everywhere, and now all 3 teams have won one apiece. Winner takes all in match 4.

Our next match now is Bram Vs Gunner.

Bram wins when Samuel Shaw came out, and cost his friend the match, Bram rolls up Gunner for the win.

Our main event….Lashley Vs Roode is next.

Earlier tonight, Havok wins the Knockout Battle Royal. She faces Gail Kim for the title.

Gail isn’t afraid of Havok, so bring it.

Lashley Vs Roode is now.

Roode hurt his knee during the match, and when he tried a Roode Bomb, it buckled. The champ then nailed a spear, and pins Roode to retain his title.

A very good match to end the show.

Next Wednesday, we will have an 8-man battle royal to determine who faces Lashley for the title.

Kevin's Thoughts:

Another good show that featured 3 great match, and we saw the show pick up some steam in the final hour. I also like the new Revolution, and what can I say about the main event? Roode Vs Lashley was every worth the second of watching it, and it was on free TV.

The only disturbing trend I see is we still don’t have any matches set for Bound for Glory. We are only 3 weeks away, and it’s time to see what we are in store to see.

I recommend this episode if you missed it, especially the main event title match. Who’s next for Lashley? We will find out, what was your thoughts of the show? Send them to me.

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/15/14…John Cena Is Here For A Fight

We kick Raw off with Paul Heyman. He is here to give us a preview of what is going to happen this Sunday night at Night of Champions.

We start the match off with the former WWE Champion coming out. John Cena will hear the cheers from the little kids.

And now here comes the reigning, defending WWE Champion, his client….BRAWK LESNAR!!

Boo all you want, but Brock is going to give Cena a bigger beating than he had at Summerslam.

Here comes the former WWE Champion himself, John Cena.

Cena asks where is the one, at 21-1? Where is Brock Lesnar?

Heyman makes excuses, and Cena reminded Paul he was here for a fight. He was either going to fight Brock, or he was going to fight Heyman.

Heyman gives us a promo, if he wants a fight, he is going to get one. Here comes the pain!!!

Nobody shows up, and Heyman is laughing.

Brock doesn’t fly coach, he flies in a private plane, because he doesn’t like people, especially Cena. But Paul believes Cena knew Brock wasn’t here, because deep down, he knows he can’t beat Lesnar. So he applauds him.

Cena grabs Heyman and told Paul he warned him that last week, he was coming here for a fight, and if his beats doesn’t show up in 90 minutes, at halftime, if his beast doesn’t show up, he will fight Heyman.

Paul tells him he will notify him when he shows up, but Cena grabs Heyman in a headlock, because he doesn’t believe him and Cajun Country will get a fight tonight.

Michael Cole, Jerry “The King” Lawler, and JBL welcome us to the show.

Last Monday night, The Authority took out Roman Reigns.

Tonight, Reigns Vs Rollins. Forget Night of Champions, we get that on free TV.

Here comes Chris Jericho.

When we come back, we learn that Cena locked Heyman in a locker room, and had Great Khali stand guard.

Jericho Vs “Corporate” Kane is now.

Jericho pins Kane, rolling him up after Kane hit an exposed turnbuckle.

At Night of Champions, Jericho Vs Orton.

Heyman is on the phone with Brock. There is no connection, and Heyman looks very concerned.

Tonight, Reigns Vs Rollins.

We show footage from last Friday night on Smackdown, when Rusev had the upper hand against Henry. Tonight, Mark Henry rallies America.

Renee Young is with Roman Reigns.

Tonight, he faces Seth Rollins, Roman says that Seth claims he created everything, and Seth is responsible for Roman’s career. He is going to hit him so much that his knuckles will bleed. Believe that.

Jack Swagger Vs Bo Dallas, now.

Swagger makes Bo tap out to the Patriot Lock.

We have an hour of the pre-show this Sunday of Night of Champions.

Next, Brie Bella and AJ Lee Vs Paige and Nikki Bella.

Paige and Nikki win when Nikki takes out AJ, and Paige hits a Rampaige to win.

Nikki attacks Brie after the match, and Paige skips around the ring. AJ responds by skipping around ringside.

Switching gears, showing from last Friday Night Smackdown, we see Bray Wyatt preventing from getting into the ring, thanks to Big Show.

Bray Wyatt speaks.

Tonight, just for fun, Bray will fix The Big Show.

Follow the Buzzards.

Big Show Vs Bray Wyatt, next.

Heyman is scared silly in the locker room.

Heyman confronts The Great Khali. He wants to just stand over there, so he can get a hold of his client Brock Lesnar. Khali breaks the phone, and shoves Heyman right back into the room.

Show Vs Wyatt….Cajundome….we’re here.

Bray Wyatt loses by DQ, when Rowan and Harper attack Big Show, but Show counters and chokeslams both of them. Bray is loving that.

Tonight, Roman Reigns Vs Seth Rollins.

6-man tag match is set now. The Usos and Sheamus Vs Goldust, Stardust, and Cesaro.

The Usos and Sheamus win, with Jimmy hitting the splash on Cesaro.

This Sunday, The Usos Vs The Dust Brothers, and Sheamus Vs Cesaro for US Title.

Last month, we see what Seth Rollins did ti Dean Ambrose, taking him out.

Tonight, Rollins Vs Reigns.

An hour-long Night of Champions Kick-off show. We will have a special edition of The Peep Show, with Christian’s guest being Chris Jericho.

We see footage of Mark Henry’s Olympic days. Tonight, Mark Henry rallies America.

Renee Young is with Randy Orton.

We see Orton attacking Jericho last week.

Why did he attack Chris Jericho? Chris a few weeks ago said he had everything handed to him, and that is not true. But this Sunday, Chris will have something handed to him, and that is a beating of his life.

The Great Khali is waiting by the door. Will Lesnar show up, we find out, next.

Cena comes back for Heyman, and he drags Paul back into the ring.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is John Cena. And now is the moment we have all been waiting for. To see the great Heyman-dini. The man behind the 21-1 will magically make a beast appear. Or he will see a fist disappear.

Everyone is waiting Paul, produce your beast.

So the hustle, loyalty, and respect is a lie. The man Heyman tried to unleash a few weeks ago is not here. Heyman brings up Cena isn’t going to do this, because he isn’t a bully. He knows deep down that Lesnar’s plane really is delayed. And for that reason, Cena won’t unleash the bully. But Brock is a bully, and that is why Cena can’t beat Brock.

So hit him, let that hate unleash. You used to say “The Champ is Here”, but the fact is Brock took that away from him, so hit Heyman. His mother and father taught him well, by not channeling the hate. Heyman knows he can’t hit him, and this Sunday, he won’t beat Lesnar.

Cena tells Heyman that if there is one person who deserves to be hit, it’s Heyman because he is the scum of the universe.

Heyman wants Cena to hit him, so he can become his version of a Paul Heyman guy.

Cena refuses to do it, he tried to set up Heyman so he can produce The Beast, and he can show the world he can beat him. But Heyman isn’t worth getting his knuckles bruised.

Cena walks away, and Heyman brings up how proud his mother must be that he walks away, only if he had a set of testicles.

Cena shoves Heyman, and now….

HERE COMES THE PAIN!!

Lesnar refuses to fight.

Lesnar gives Cena a German Suplex, and walks away. But Cena comes right back, and starts whaling punches, even as if to break his nose. Brock walks away when officials break them up.

Lesnar vs Cena III at Night of Champions.

Cameron Vs Naomi, one on one, now.

Naomi makes Cameron tap out to a leg scissors.

Tonight, Roman Reigns Vs Seth Rollins, also Mark Henry rallies America.

The Miz and Damien Mizdow are in the ring. They are facing R-Ziggler and Dolph Ziggler.

Ziggler and R-Ziggler win, with a Zig Zag. Dolph pins Mizdow.

Tom Phillips is with Seth Rollins.

We see footage from last week on Raw, when Seth hits a curb stomp on Roman last week on Raw.

Roman Reigns is nothing without Seth. Seth calls Roman part-gorilla, part-samoan, and part-rhinosarus. Even though, he is strong, he isn’t smart. And brains beat brawn everytime. Seth is the future WWE Champion, and he is the future of WWE.

Believe that.

Rollins Vs Reigns, next.

This Friday night on Smackdown, The Usos and Big Show Vs The Wyatt Family.

Rollins Vs Reigns, now.

Reigns wins the match with a spear. These two face each other in a rematch at Night of Champions.

Mark Henry is going to rally America.

We see what happened this Friday night on Smackdown, when Lana threw powder in Mark Henry’s eyes, and Rusev takes Mark out.

Mark Henry rallies America, next.

Michael Cole brings out Mark to the ring.

Cole talks about if Mark is ready for this Sunday, after what took place Sunday night. Mark brings up having an opportunity to represent our country in the 1996 Olympics. He was hurt, and had to back out, something he has regretted his entire life. But now, this is his second chance, and he won’t let this one pass him by.

But here comes Rusev and Lana.

Lana tells Mark he left one important piece of information. When he backed out of the 1996 Olympics, a Russian won the powerlifting. He proved that Mark, just like our American president is weak. And Russia has a real leader, Vladimir Putin.

Now the two men start to fight, but Rusev has the upper hand, he hits an Accolade, with Lana screaming, pleading to lock it in. But Mark powers out of it, he escapes, and nails Rusev, sends him out of the ring. Mark grabs the American flag, and is able to end the show, waving old glory.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was just a run of the mill show this week, which means it wasn’t a “Season Premiere”. There seems to be a severe disconnect right now with the fans, and the creative.

But what do I know about this? But hey, we can watch Night of Champions, for only $9.99 this month, so we have that.

Impact Wrestling 9/10/14…An American Hero Makes His In-Ring Debut

Before I begin, I want to send my condolences to Sean O’ Haire family. The wrestling world lost another young, talented performer. He was only 43 years old, and will be missed.

Tonight, we are at the Manhattan Center, in New York City. We will see the debut of Chris Melendez, the man who lost his leg, in battle at Afghanistan. He is living his dream, making his Impact Wrestling debut. We will also see match two of the Ultimate Tag Team Battle, with The Hardys Vs Team 3-D Vs The Wolves, in a Tables match.

Impact Wrestling is now.

We hear the national anthem being played.

JB is here to introduce Sgt. Christopher Melendez.

Chris is facing DJ Z.

Chris wins the match with a Samoan Drop. He is amazing, to do this with one leg. A true hero.

Tonight, 3-Team Tables Match for Team 3-D Vs The Hardys Vs The Wolves.

Bobby Roode heads to the ring.

When we come back, Bobby has the mic.

Next week is No Surrender, and Roode will face Lashley for the World Title.

It feels great for Roode to be standing in front of New York City as our Number One Contender for the World Heavyweight Championship.

Roode wants to acknowledge his best friend, and his opponent, “Showtime” Eric Young. He always brought out the best in Bobby Roode. Whether they were opponents, or tag partners. Eric is his best friend, and will always be a World Champion.

Roode knows now he is ready, more than ever to claim back his World Title, next week.

Here come The Franchise Players.

MVP tells Roode he is playing the hero in a Hollywood movie, and he gets the title. But the problem is this isn’t Hollywood. He faces a dominant champion, and he meets Darth Vader. The best Roode gets next week is a stay in the hospital.

Roode brings up the difference between MVP and Lashley is MVP shows fear. Lashley knows he can beat Roode, but Roode also knows he can beat Lashley. He might be stronger, and he might be faster, but Roode has more heart, and his desire to be World Champion is the difference. And there isn’t anything MVP can do about it.

MVP says there is, and all three men beat down on Roode.

But here comes Joe and EY clearing the ring.

Joe says they have their 3, so how about MVP’s 3 fight them, right now.

6-Man tag action is next.

Bobby, EY, and Joe win when Roode gave MVP a Roode Bomb, and pinned him.

The stage is set for next week, at No Surrender.

Still to come tonight, 3-team Tables Match with Team 3=D Vs The Hardys Vs The Wolves.

Brittany wants to know if Samuel is seeing anyone. Gunner said that he is seeing a therapist, but Brittany wants to know if he is, you know, seeing anyone? Gunner is looking for him, and if when he finds him, he will tell him she is interested.

6-person tag now. The Bromans and Velvet Vs Crazzy Steve, Knux, and Rebel.

Velvet and the Bromans win when Velvet rolls up, and holds on to Rebel’s shorts.

Kurt Angle is going to invite EC3 next, and tell him who he will fight.

Team 3-D are ready for their match, and will make history, winning their 24th Tag Team Title reign.

Kurt Angle is in the ring.

Kurt wants EC3 in the ring, now, and here he comes.

EC3 tells him Team 3-D put his aunt through a freaking table, and Kurt rewarded them putting them in a Tag Team Title match. But the blood just isn’t on Team 3-D’s hands, or Rhino, or even the fans, but the blood is in Kurt’s hands too. And he will deliver vengeance on anyone that had something to do with it.

EC3 took him out not once, but twice. And if EC3’s demands aren’t met, he will take Kurt out a third time.

Kurt did not forget what EC3 did to him, and when the time is right, he will get back with him. Now he will wrestle against someone, and if he doesn’t, he will throw his ass out.

But EC3 isn’t prepared to wrestle, but he will put him in a streetfight, and his opponent is Rhino.

EC3 wins the match, and somehow survives with a One Percenter, on a chair.

Next, the 2015 Knockout Calender cover girl is revealed.

This was Chris Melendez’s dream, and this is a message to anyone that you can have a disability, and achieve anything.

The TNA Knockouts are in the ring, with JB announcing who will grace the 2015 Knockout calendar.

Angelina grabs the mic, and she brings up we all know it’s the beautiful Angelina Love who won.

JB grabbed the mic back, and said the winner is Velvet Sky.

Angelina is shocked, and here comes Havok.

Havok chokeslams Britany, and takes the Knockout Title.

Earlier this week, The Revolution continues. “Cowboy” James Storm is with Manik.

Next, Storm and The Great Sanada Vs Aries and Tajiri.

Also tonight, Match Two of The Ultimate Tag Team Battle.

Last Friday, Bobby Lashley made his Bellator Fighting debut. He won the fight, with ease.

Next Wednesday, TNA Impact presents No Surrender. Lashley Vs Roode.

Gail Kim is looking for Havok.

Storm and Sanada Vs Tajiri and Aries, now.

Sanada and Storm win when Storm blows beer into Tajiri’s eyes, and Sanada kicks him in the head.

The Hardys are ready for their match tonight.

That epic 3-team match is next.

Gail Kim finds Havok.

We come back, and see Havok and Gail fight on the ramp. Here comes security, and Havok gave both men a chokeslam.

She wants Gail.

Next Wednesday, at No Surrender, Knockout Battle Royal to determine the Number One Contender to the Knockout Title. We will also see Homicide Vs Joe, for the X-Division Title. And Roode Vs Lashley, for the World Title.

Our main event, match two of the Ultimate Tag Team match is up now. Team 3-D Vs The Hardys Vs The Wolves.

The Hardys win the match, putting Edwards through a table. After the match, they set up a ladder in the ring.

Matt confirms it, next match is a ladder match.

Tenay confirms that match 3 is the next week.

Next Wednesday, Impact Wrestling Presents No Surrender. Lashley Vs Roode, for the World Title.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts

Another good show here that started with Chris Melendez picking up his 1st win. With 9/11 the next day, this was a feel-good moment on the show. And we will never forget that day.

We also saw a 6-man tag that was very effective, giving Roode a big win. The stage is set for next week. I can’t wait to see Roode Vs Lashley.

But we finished the night on a high note, with The Hardys picking up the win. Their next match is a ladder match, and we know the 3 teams will steal the show there.

I just wished that TNA would use the time to build up their biggest PPV of the year. No clue why they haven’t done that, with these matches. They should have saved Roode Vs Lashley for that event, but we will see it on free TV. No idea why though, but here we go.

What did you think of the show? Send me your thoughts.

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/8/14…Raw Is Springer

Tonight, Jerry Springer makes his return to Raw. Maybe he can be a part of the creative team, and improve Raw. The last few weeks have been lackluster, to say the least.

But here we go, a new day, a new chance.

Steel cage match will kick off the show. Chris Jericho Vs Bray Wyatt, in Baltimore, Maryland.

Wyatt wins the match by escaping through the cage, leaping over Jericho. A very fun match and a great start to the show. Jericho did a flying cross body off the top of the cage, and hurt his knee. So Chris was selling it the rest of the match, and now Bray goes after the knee after the match.

Sister Abigail on a laying Chris Jericho.

Follow the Buzzards!!

Tonight, Paul Heyman has a warning for John Cena. We will also have a Jerry Springer Bella Intervention, and also Orton Vs Reigns, a Summerslam rematch.

Kane and Seth Rollins are happy about the start of Raw. HHH tells them they need to put on something nobody will forget. Randy Orton approaches them.

Orton is in the main event, and he wants HHH’s permission to have Orton do something to Reigns that will make what Rollins did to Ambrose look like Sunday School.

HHH gives him his blessing.

The Intercontinental Champion, Dolph Ziggler is in the ring.

A very controversial weekend for Hollywood last week. Several celebrities had their personal photos hacked online. Nobody deserves that, not even D-lister celebrities.

Except for one person, The Miz.

Ziggler has some pictures of Miz.

A picture of Miz having a facial.

Another one of him shaving his chest.

Just as he is about to show one that blows the roof off, here comes The Miz and Damien Mizdow.

Ziggler is invading the sanctimony of his home. His people will sue Ziggler, his people, and everyone in the world if they try to re-publish those photos.

If he shows those photos one more time, he will make sure Ziggler never works in this town again.

If that is the case, then Ziggler wants to make sure he gets his money worth.

It’s a picture of Damien using spray tan on Miz’s ass.

Mizdow tries to attack, but Ziggler hits a dropkick, and a Zig Zag.

Miz walks away, he gets his shot at the IC Title at Night of Champions.

Tonight, Randy Orton Vs Roman Reigns in a Summerslam Rematch.

Also tonight, Jerry Springer’s Bella Intervention.

Paige and AJ Lee Vs Rosa Mendes and Natalya in the ring, now.

AJ and Paige win when AJ tags herself into Paige, and slaps a Black Widow. Rosa didn’t even tag to Natalya.

Now both divas kiss the title, and AJ skips along.

Earlier tonight, Jericho hurts his knee, and he was tended to but Orton attacked Jericho. Randy did it because it’s the season premiere.

That’s a trend on this show.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman, and he is the advocate to the WWE World Champion, Brock Lesnar.

His client would like to give Cena some advice….

Here comes the former champ.

If Heyman wants to say things to Cena’s face, he is here, so talk.

Up until Summerslam, Cena was the greatest World Champion of all-time. He is here to listen to some truth, in front of the world. Brock thought you would come out, and if he did, he would drop the warning and offer some inside information.

Heyman has been authorized to tell Cena how to beat Brock at Night of Champions.

Cena knows how to beat Brock. Lesnar beat The Undertaker, at Wrestlemania and we haven’t seen him since. Brock beat him at Summerslam, and one week later, he comes back and wants more. Never give up. He offers a handkerchief.

Heyman laughs and says Cena lives to be John Cena, and that is his down fall. He lives to come out for those kids, whether it’s at a live event, or on TV. He thrives to hear “Let’s Go Cena”, and Brock hears 3 voices. The referee to count to 3, Heyman to tell him what to do, and his opponent to hear the pain they are going through.

Here is a gift for Cena, to give in.

There are also people who chant “Cena Sucks”, and it gets to him. Someone like Heyman says it, he has to put up with it. But that one time, when that fat, unemployed man in the 6th row is chanting “Cena sucks”, isn’t there one time he wants to tell that man to shut up?

Heyman goes old school with Cena and gives that fan a Baltimore Ravens rap. Just one time, lose the wristband, lose the T-shirt, lose the hustle, loyalty, and respect. Then, Cena can be the one who beats the one in 21-1. Or, he can be just another one of the victims who was conquered by Brock Lesnar.

Heyman believes in Cena, but his client Brock Lesnar doesn’t think he has it in himself.

Cena is about to leave, but he hears the Let’s go Cena/Cena sucks chants.

Now Cena screams at Heyman to shut up.

He sees what he is doing, his client Brock Lesnar wants to end Cena, and so does Heyman. He thinks a way to end him is to take off the show, and let down the kids.

Does he want Cena to pop off at the fans, the men who are wearing wife beaters? Cena doesn’t think so. Heyman believes in Eat, sleep, conquer, repeat. He believes it so much, he would turn on his client, and have a smile on his face. Cena lives by one rule, Be John Cena, repeat, be John Cena, repeat.

He thrives on being that guy. Something he doesn’t see, Cena tells the kid to do his homework so he can come to Raw to see Cena.

And his dad is yelling out Cena Sucks, but after the show, he comes up to him, tells John he doesn’t like him, but thank you for being what’s right to his kid.

He loves visiting kids that need him. He loves visiting soldiers that had lost their leg, and yet just showing up makes his day. That’s all Cena knows is eat, sleep, be John Cena.

Then, comes an advocate who wants Cena to strip everything away, just so he can win a match. So what does he win? He just wants to stop talking, and fight.

But Cena will give Heyman 7 days. He will show up on Raw to fight. Bring the beast, bring The One, Brock Lesnar. If he shows up, they will fight. But if he decides to stay on vacation, then Cena will fight Heyman.

Have a nice week Paul, he will see him next Monday.

Sheamus is ready for a match, he faces Seth Rollins, now.

Cesaro helped Rollins get the win, and Seth hits a Curb Stomp. Cesaro now has the United States Title, with bad intentions.

Nails Sheamus with a Neutralizer.

Cesaro Vs Sheamus at Night of Champions for the United States Title.

3 weeks ago, Mark Henry issued a challenge to Rusev.

The stage is set, Night of Champions, Rusev Vs Henry.

Rusev and Lana are out now.

“The Star Spangled Banner” was written in Baltimore, so Lana tells us. Shutup, now she is singing for us.

Her own version, we all stand in awe of Rusev.

Now we hear the real national anthem, the Russian national anthem, in honor of the Russian patriot, Rusev.

This Thursday, NXT Takeover, Fatal 4-Way. Boy, do I have some catching up to do. Behind 2 months in that program. Adrian Neville and Sami Zayn Vs Tyler Breeze and Tyson Kidd is up next.

Neville and Zayn win when Neville hits a 450 splash, pinning Breeze.

Jerry Springer segment is next, yup, we go from a tremendous segment that sold wrestling to a crappy segment that wastes all of our time.

Season Premiere!!

Here comes Stephanie McMahon.

It breaks Steph’s heart to see a family being ripped apart, like the Bellas have been. She wrestled her own father 10 years ago in this company, and they since reconciled. It’s great to have family together. So she could invite only one man who can bring them back together, and that is Jerry Springer.

Jerry has been dealing with family dysfunction for the last 24 years, and when he was asked to bring back Nikki and Brie together, why wouldn’t you say no?

Bring in Brie, who finally has some new music of her own.

We see the segment from last week, when the two Bellas fight it out. Brie apologized last week on Twitter.

She never should have stooped down to her classless level.

So is Brie any better? Nikki is the one who wished Brie died in her mother’s womb.

Here comes Nikki Bella.

Nikki did accept her apology last week, but that doesn’t mean she forgives her of all the years of being treated like a second-class sister. But she is a sophisticated woman, and has alot of things going for her. “Total Divas” premiered last night, and she has a Divas Title match at Night of Champions.

We see segments of “Total Divas” with dissention between the two sisters.

Now Nikki is blaming Brie for her dad leaving them.

And now, we have Papa Bella. Now Momma Bella, they are both wanting the two to get along.

No matter what happens, Nikki cost Brie her match, Nikki wished Brie to be dead, and she broke her heart.

Now JJ Bella is here.

JJ is blaming this all on Nikki, she is not the victim.

Now the two sisters get into it, and down goes Springer. Nikki tries to slap Brie, but slaps JJ and Brie hits a spear.

Stephanie steps in, and slams Brie down, now the two sisters fight again.

Jason is no Steve, he just finally came in and helped Jerry.

Now come the EMTs taking Jerry out. He seemed to hurt his ankle.

Tonight, Summerslam Rematch, Orton Vs Reigns.

Goldust and Stardust Vs Los Matadores are up now.

Uso’s Vs Goldust and Stardust at Night of Champions.

Star and Gold Dust win with Dark Matter.

The Uso’s attack from behind, they are returning the favor.

WWE are giving their condolences to Joan Rivers.

Now we see a tribute video to Joan.

Oh good lord, we have Titus O’ Neil Vs Adam Rose.

Rose wins with a Party Foul, after the bunny went after Heath Slater.

After the match, we see a Superkick by the bunny, and a Bunnysplash.

Oh boy, Slater Gator’s push is done.

The only appearance tonight by Renee Young is with Roman Reigns. He says that Orton is the Viper, but he has the antidote, his two fists.

Earlier tonight, Cena challenged Lesnar or Heyman to a fight next week.

Brock Lesnar video is showing now.

Brock Lesnar will return live, next week.

Our main event, Randy Orton Vs Roman Reigns, Summerslam Rematch is now.

Orton loses by DQ, because Kane and Rollins come in and attack Rollins. Some ring crew come running to set up what happens to be the cage coming down, so its 3-on-1. But at first it doesn’t work. Reigns fights off Rollins and Kane so they don’t make it into the cage, but the find a way.

The last part of the night is when Rollins screams at Reigns that he made him, and now he’s going to end him. Hits a Curb Stomp on Reigns head through a chair.

The Authority are left standing, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A much better flowing show tonight than the previous month. I wish they would do this more often, but since this was a “season premiere”, there was added pressure to make it stand out.

Now, I can’t wait to see Brock return next week to confront Cena. I loved that promo, and when John can give us a passionate promo, it works on many levels. But if he ever turns heel, I would think something drastic would have to happen. Would losing to Lesnar be a start at Night of Champions?

What are your thoughts on the show? Send them to me.

Impact Wrestling 9/3/14…Bobby Roode Vs Eric Young Says It All

Tonight, Bobby Roode Vs “Showtime” Eric Young to determine who the Number One Contender is to the World Heavyweight Title. We also saw video from last week when Team 3-D won match one of the Tag Team Invitational. What stipulation will Team 3-D choose next?

Impact Wrestling is now.

Earlier today, EY and Roode entered the building.

We are in the Manhattan Center, Mike Tenay and Taz welcome us to the show. Gail Kim Vs Taryn Terrell for the Knockout Title. Also a 6-Pack match to determine the Number One Contender to the X-Division Title.

Franchise Players enter the ring.

Lashley is the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, and soon to become the Bellator MMA World Champion. There isn’t a man in the entire planet that is tougher than Lashley.

Samoa Joe might disagree, here comes the X-Division Champion.

Joe is impressed with MVP being a hype man, instead of main eventing, he is singing the praises of his man. He is a specimen, but the issue he has is MVP is trying to say he is the toughest man in the planet. He sure isn’t the toughest man in this ring right now. So let’s make it simple, slide these titles to the side, and Lashley can fight Joe, tonight.

Kenny King told him he can’t win, and now Joe decks him. The numbers game catches up however.

Officials come out, and hold Joe back while the champ leaves.

But Lashley agrees they will fight tonight.

Havok has arrived, tonight.

Video is promoting Gail Kim Vs Taryn Terrell for tonight. It starts now.

Gail Kim wins in what was a very good match with a reverse body drop, pinning Taryn.

The two shake hands, and hug, showing good sportsmanship.

But now, here comes Havok.

She attacks both women, hits a DVD, and chokeslams Gail Kim, along with a DVD.

Tonight, Eric Young Vs Bobby Roode, for the Number One Contender on the line.

MVP catches up with Eric Young backstage, warning him that Roode is only out for himself, and he treated Eric horrible, carrying his bags. EY walks away, saying he doesn’t trust MVP.

EC3 comes out to the ring, next.

The Bromans are ready for their date, with a TNA Knockout.

Ladies and gentlemen, EC3.

EC3 is sick of everyone, from the mutants in the Manhattan Center, to the men and women in the back, giving great pleasure over what happened to his sweet, dear Auntie. We are all cheering for a lunatic who put Aunt Dixie through a table.

Everyone will pay, and Rhino will start with that payback, because of what he did. His violence will continue until his list of demands is met.

Demand number 1, the immediate termination of Bully Ray.

Demand number 2, the words Hardcore and ECW will stop, because we are tired of living in the past.

Demand number 3, respect. He has beaten everyone he has faced, and he has earned that respect, and stop with the chants of you can’t wrestle.

He is a Carter, and the world needs a Carter.

Here comes Rhino to end the fun.

Rhino wants EC3 in the ring, so he can beat the living hell out of him.

Rhino will get a fight, his opponent is Rockstar Spud.

Brittany has a thing for Samuel Shaw it seems. Gunner approaches Samuel. He just wanted to see what it felt like being a hero, so he is sorry. Gunner forgives him, and next, Gunner and Shaw Vs Magnus and Bram.

Bram and Magnus beat Gunner and Shaw, when Bram clips Gunner’s knee, and Shaw misses the save.

MVP is trying to stir the pot with Roode now.

Roode Vs EY, next.

The Bromans matched up with the Beautiful People. Angelina tells them as long as they keep them happy, they will keep Bromans happy.

Roode Vs Young, now.

Roode wins the match with a Roode Bomb, becoming the new Number One Contender to the World Title.

The two shake hands, and embrace. Is there tension in the future?

Tonight, Samoa Joe Vs Lashley.

Moments ago, Bobby Roode pinned Eric Young, to become the new Number One Contender.

Backstage, we get to hear from Roode. He is exhausted, but ready. After sitting on the sidelines for 7 weeks, he is back to claim what is his. He goes to get some water, but runs right into Lashley.

JB is with Team 3-D, they chose a tables match.

Brother Ray picked the tables match for obvious reasons. It is their speciality. Tag Team wrestling is back. Last week, they won the first match, and now they just need to win one more, to become the new World Tag Team Champions.

Devon tells us to testify.

6-Pack Challenge is up now. DJ Z Vs Manik Vs Crazzy Steve Vs Tigre Uno Vs Homicide Vs Lo-Ki.

Homicide wins with a Gringo Killer, pinning Manik. He is now the Number One Contender to the X-Division Title.

“Cowboy” James Storm and The Great Sanada make their way to the ring.

Sanada looks to strike Manik. I guess he is the next target for Storm’s Revolution.

Sanada hits a Last Call Superkick, shoves Manik out of the ring, and they both drag Manik out of ringside.

Tonight, Joe Vs Lashley.

Austin Aries has the mic, in the ring.

Sanada blew green mist in his face last week, but before that, James Storm interfered. So if that is the game they play, come on out so they can play/

Storm tells him this is The Great Sanada. He is the man who has been reborn, and had a re-awakening. He walked towards the light, and Storm is the one who welcomed him with open arms. Just like he will do with Manik. He has a vision of greatness, a vision of championships. All led by The Legend himself, James Storm.

The Great Sanada will become the greatest man in Japanese wrestling.

Aries brings up Storm keeps using the word great, but the people think of one man when they think of great….”The Grestest Denominator” Austin Aries. Sanada was a great competitor in the X-Division, but then he became associated with an asshole, like Storm. Sanada pissed off the entire country of Japan, and Aries did not come alone.

Here comes Yoshihiro Tajiri.

Tajiri and Aries take care of business, and cleans the ring.

Spud comes over to EC3, to ask him why he threw him over the bus. Spud has a job to do, and if he doesn’t want to, he can leave. So he walks to the ring, and Spud follows.

Spud Vs Rhino, next.

Chris Melendez video, he will make his TNA Wrestling debut, next week.

Rhino hit s a Gore, Spud never had a chance.

EC3 walks away, he doesn’t care about Spud.

Next, Lashley Vs Joe.

Lashley wins with a spear in what was a fun match to see.

The show ends with the champion standing side by side with Kenny King at the ramp.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This had a better flow tonight than last week, and we will see match two next week with Team 3-D Vs The Hardys Vs The Wolves.

But the matches were good, with Roode Vs Young, Joe Vs Lashley, and Terrell Vs Kim. Not sure where they are heading with Havok quite yet, but she is surely going to be pushed, and it adds a bit more to the Knockout Division.

I do have a big issue though, its time to truly start pushing Bound for Glory. In fact, this should have been pushed about a month ago. I don’t believe they will have Roode Vs Lashley at the PPV, but they won’t do that. So where are they going? I thought the issue of less PPVs means more buildup to the big events, and make them must-see.

It’s time to showcase that, and they need to start next week. What were your thoughts on the show? Send them to me here.

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/1/14….Labor Day Bash

Tonight is Labor Day, so either WWE will make tonight’s Raw memorable, or they will phone it in.

We’ll see which side they go with, The Highlight Reel with Jericho’s guest being Randy Orton kicks off the show.

We are in Des Moines, Iowa tonight.

We have Labor Day, with people who work hard for themselves, yet his guest is a man who hasn’t worked hard a day in his life, with everything handed to him on a silver platter.

Now comes the entire Authority.

Jericho makes a joke about all four men, and HHH interrupts Kane, and says this is Chris Jericho, the man who never grew up. He means that figuratively, and physically.

HHH has some business to attend to, and Jericho makes a joke about HHH not conducting business, unless his wife is in jail.

HHH said that Jericho should be thanking him, for making this Highlight Reel historic. He has seen video of Summerslam, with Lesnar Vs Cena, and he has also heard from the panelists last week. He has come to the conclusion that it might not be best for business to make that rematch at Night of Champions.

Chris wants to know who HHH will get to put in that match, now?

Orton intervenes and says there is one man who has what it takes to beat Brock, and he is a 12-time World Champion.

Kane suggests maybe it should be the man who uses a mask to unleash the devil’s deeds.

Seth Rollins suggests it should be the future, since he won Money in the Bank, and took out Dean Ambrose.

Jericho suggests he should give it to the 6-time World Champion, and the first Undisputed Champion, and the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla….

Here comes Cena.

Cena brings up it doesn’t matter HHH is friends with Flair and HBK, the same two men that don’t think he can beat Brock believed he couldn’t beat HHH at Wrestlemania 22, and he made him tap.

Cena has a rematch clause, and he authorized it. If he doesn’t follow through, he will sue WWE and become the new COO and his first order of business is to fire HHH.

So is this what Cena has come to? Hustle, Loyalty, Respect, Lawsuit? This is why HHH is the COO, this is why he does what is best for business, and perhaps Cena doesn’t have what it takes to win. Maybe he shouldn’t do this.

Seth thinks HHH should accept the match, because anything can happen. He has the MITB briefcase, after all.

Orton agrees, he has never had his rematch yet from Wrestlemania, so give him the winner of Night of Champions, and he gets a one on one opportunity.

Jericho brings up Orton’s last big match he was speared and Superman-punched by Roman Reigns.

Orton says Roman isn’t anything, and he will drop him next time he sees him.

Reigns comes out. He dares him to drop him, and Orton doesn’t do it.

The Authority doesn’t like to see him, because of what happened last week. He shows Rollins that they have unfinished business, and he wants an opportunity at the WWE World Title.

HHH doesn’t believe in Cena, and HHH doesn’t think Cena believes in himself. So tonight, he gives all 6 men a chance to prove they belong. A 6-man tag match of Cena, Reigns, and Jericho Vs Kane, Orton, and Rollins.

HHH will be sitting at ringside, watching this.

Rollins tries to attack Reigns, but it backfires.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show.

6-man tag match tonight, also Big Show and Mark Henry Vs Rowan and Harper.

Last Friday on Smackdown, we see footage of The Miz and Sheamus.

Ziggler and Sheamus Vs The Miz and Sandow is next.

Actually, Cesaro is tag partners with Miz, and Sandow is his agent. Oh boy.

The Miz and Cesaro win when Miz hits a Skull Crushing Finale, pinning Ziggler.

Last Monday, we see The Bellas drama.

We see a segment called “Growing Up Bella”, and find out Brie stole Nikki’s’ prom date from her.

Divas action now, with Summer Rae, Layla, and Naomi Vs Eva Marie, Rosa Mendes, and Cameron.

The match ends in a no contest, complete waste of time. Hey, season 3 of “Total Divas” this Sunday.

We see what happened last Monday night when Roman Reigns ruined Rollins and Kane’s plans with the cinder blocks.

Tonight, 6-man tag action of Cena, Jericho, and Reigns Vs Rollins, Orton, and Kane.

But next, over 1,400 pounds in the ring, with Big Show and Mark Henry Vs Rowan and Harper.

Rowan and Harper lose by DQ, when Rusev comes to ringside, and lays a big boot on Henry, causing the DQ.

More stuff from Nikki Bella, “Growing up Bella”.

Nikki passed her driving test, and Brie failed. Brie stole the car, and she stole Nikki’s driver’s license, and got into an accident.

Next, we will see a message from John Cena, “Hustle, Loyalty, Focus”.

Michael Sam is invited to Monday Night Raw next week. Will he accept the invite? Next week, in Baltimore.

Video os John Cena Vs Brock Lesnar for Night of Champions.

Paul Heyman shows up, telling us he is the advocate of his client Brock Lesnar. John Cena has an ego, or something like that. Heyman gives us video proof of Lesnar victimizing and beating Cena, not to mention emasculated him at Summerslam.

Ladies and gentlemen, as any great champion before him has his manhood stripped of him. And what happens when that takes place? He ignores advice from others, such as the panelists last week, and of HHH. Cena is so desperate to hang on to that image that we have of Cena. That is why he was so magnificent last week against The Wyatts, and why he will be fantastic tonight. But you can stack the entire WWE locker room, and they won’t amount to Brock Lesnar’s manhood, and that is why the same result will happen at Night of Champions.

WWE World Title match is set for Night of Champions, John Cena Vs Brock Lesnar.

Jack Swagger is up next, accompanied to the ring by a returning Zeb Colter.

Swagger Vs Axel is now.

Swagger makes Axel tap out to the Patriot Lock. Bo Dallas is watching on the ramp, with some Americans who are disappointed Jack lost to Rusev at Summerslam.

Like Richie, Angelo, and Jennifer.

Swagger let Richie down, because he bet money on Swagger, who lost. Now, he lost his farm. Angelo lost his American Citizenship, because he is so depressed over Swagger losing. He is now about to be deported. And Jennifer’s little boy used to look up to Swagger, he was his favorite wrestler. Now he wants to grow up like Vladimir Putin.

But we all need to stand up, and just BOlieve.

Tonight, 6-man tag match with Cena, Reigns, and Jericho Vs Orton, Kane, and Rollins.

Adam Rose sighting on Raw tonight, folks.

He is facing Titus O’ Neil.

Adam Rose wins with a rollup. It seems the bunny and Heath Slater got into it, so the bunny nails a Thesz Press and whales on Slater.

Yeah, that was entertaining.

More “Growing Up Bella”.

Brie almost did not graduate with Nikki at High School.

Nikki switched places with Brie, and took her final exams.

Rusev is in action.

We come back from a break, and Lana tells us we celebrate another day off on Labor Day. Which means one less day to educate. In Russia, they celebrate a day of knowledge. So America, what is that American word? We suck.

Rusev Vs Zack Ryder.

So was Ryder the bunny tonight?

The Accolade, match is over.

Somebody is about to get their ass kicked….here comes Mark Henry.

He goes right for Rusev, and Rusev runs off.

Mark asks him what is he scared of? Why is he running? Mark is scared too, he is scared what he might do if he gets his hands on. He is the strongest man in the strongest country, United States of America.

Rusev thinks because he is undefeated, he is unvincible? He has something for him, Mark just opened an International Wing in the Hall of Pain, and Rusev is the first induction.

Stephanie wants to get back into the Bellas business. She has given so much, that she wants to give back.

Stephanie is going to make a big announcement, next.

Stephanie McMahon heads to the ring.

As principal owner, and one of the most powerful women in the world, she wants to commend Nikki Bella for telling her story.

Here comes Nikki.

Nikki thanks Steph for giving her the platform to get things off her chest.

The crowd is chanting boring, and Stephanie tells is the fans know what its like to be in the shadow of things, and look up to bigger people, like Stephanie. As a woman, and a mother herself, she is proud of Nikki. She has raised her children as values, and she never has had a Brie. Which is why she is rewarding Nikki of a Divas Title match.

Here comes Brie, with the same music.

Is this why Nikki has been spreading lies all night? A Divas Title? For what?

Nikki tells her that she sees right through Brie. And she is waiting for the day her “goatface husband” sees Brie for who she is too, and she divorces her. Brie is going to be the next Divas Champion.

Here comes AJ Lee.

AJ reminds Stephanie that she is the Number One Contender to the Divas Title, and she earns that right. Let’s just leave the Bellas to have their battle, while she fights for the Diva Title.

Enter Paige.

Paige loves hearing about all of this talk about the Divas Title, but there is one thing missing, a bloody Divas Champion.

Nikki will forgive Brie for one simple thing, and that is to quit. She quit for her husband, so why can’t she quit for Nikki?

If you love me, you will go. So leave, you quitter. Leave me alone, just leave me alone.

Brie shoves Nikki right into Paige.

AJ has the Divas Title now, and skips with it. But Stephanie, who towers over her stops her. She orders AJ to give her the Divas Championship.

This is a future match, here.

AJ smiles, and hands her the title.

This Friday night on Smackdown, Miz TV, with Dolph Ziggler as his guest.

Next week, Bray Wyatt Vs Chris Jericho, inside a steel cage.

Bray Wyatt shows up, and he tells Chris it time for him to pay for his sins, run.

The Uso’s are in action, now.

It’s actually Jey Uso Vs Goldust, and we see Stardust accompanying Goldust to the ring.

Goldust tries to apologize for their actions last week, but Jey doesn’t want to hear it.

Goldust win with Final Cut.

Stardust tells Goldust it’s okay and Goldust attacks Jimmy.

Switching gears, we see footage again of Reigns ruining Rollins’ plan last week with the cinder blocks.

A sneak peek of “Total Divas”, season 3.

Earlier tonight, Rusev kicks Mark Henry, and Mark fought back. Big Show knows Mark is going to take care of Rusev, but he also believes they can be a dominant tag team.

Mark knows, but he needs to take care of Rusev first, by himself. Do it for himself, and the country.

HHH and Stephanie make their appearance, again.

Earlier tonight, HHH questions if Cena can beat Brock.

Our main event, 6-man tag match of Cena, Reigns, and Jericho Vs Orton, Kane, and Rollins is now.

Reigns, Cena, and Jericho win when Reigns spears Kane, and pins him. Cena shows The Authority he can handle things, and he assures them he is ready for Lesnar. But then Rollins tries to attack him, and Cena just lifts him up, Attitude Adjustment on the announce table.

You can’t see Cena.

Next week, Reigns Vs Orton, and Jericho Vs Wyatt, inside a steel cage. Will Michael Sam show up? Tune in next week.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

So, the question was answered at the beginning of the report, would this be a big, great show, or would this be half-assed? It was half-assed. It’s a holiday, and nobody cares about Raw on the holiday, right? Meanwhile WWE Network just started Monday Night Nitro, and I watched the clip where Scott Hall came out, to issue war with WCW. The beginning of NWO, and what day was that? Memorial Day, I honestly think the creative teams needs to do research on the shows from the mid-late 1990s. Not to rehash things, but to hear that excitement, and get that feel back with the crowd.

If you missed tonight’s show, you missed nothing, and that can’t happen.

Thoughts? Share them with me here.

Impact Wrestling 8/27/14…Team 3-D Vs The Wolves Vs The Hardys Round One

We are in the Manhatten Center in New York City. Last week, there was a bit of a controversary of who left the cage first, between Bobby Roode and Eric Young.

Kurt Angle begins the show, and he tells us that we will have EC3 Vs Rhino. Also round one of Team 3-D Vs The Wolves Vs The Hardys. And Kurt was hoping he would congratulate the new Number One Contender, but he is going to sit down with Eric Young and Bobby Roode to determine the fair policy of who the new Number One Contender is.

The Franchise Players head to the ring.

MVP is not impressed with that, and he runs down the city of New York, saying they aren’t truly tough.

The King of New York is not B.I.G. or Frank White. The King of New York is “The Destroyer” Bobby Lashley.

Here comes Tommy Dreamer.

Tommy and MVP have been friends for a long time, but he has a problem with his mouth. Kenny King, “Mr. Vegas”, he is a sellout, because he is from Queens. Lashley has finally become what they have built him up to be, a dominant champion, and he has done it through his sacrifice and heart.

Kenny King attacks Dreamer from behind.

MVP tells Kurt he has this, but Dreamer grabs Kenny King, and has a kendo stick.

Kurt tells MVP to shut his mouth. MVP talks about Bobby Lashley being the “King of New York” and Dreamer disagrees. So how about we have a New York Streetfight between Dreamer and Lashley.

MVP tries to go after Dreamer, but Lashley attacks him, and we have our match now.

Lashley hits the spear for the win. Tommy tried, but the champ found a way.

Tonight, who is the greatest team? Team 3-D Vs The Hardys Vs The Wolves. We also will see EC3 Vs Rhino.

Madison Rayne is in the back, she is fine with hearing about Taryn Terrell’s comeback, but tonight, we will see Madison Vs Terrell for the Number One Contender to the Knockout Title. And she is here to show Taryn that Madison is the “Queen of the Knockouts”.

Havok is coming next week.

Earlier today, more highjinks with Samuel Shaw and Gunner.

Gunner leaves, and Samuel looks at Gunner’s military jacket.

Madison Rayne Vs Taryn Terrell, now.

Taryn wins with a Stunner, after Madison tried to cheat to win.

Taryn moves on to face Gail Kim, down the road.

Bobby Roode enters into Kurt’s office and sees Eric Young.

Kurt asks for privacy from camera as we go to a break.

Earlier today, Samuel Shaw put Gunner’s military uniform on, very creepy.

6-man tag match now with Crazzy Steve, Tigre Uno, and Lo-Ki Vs Homicide, Manik, and DJ Z.

Lo-Ki hits a Ki-Crusher for the win.

Roode and EY leave Kurt’s office. Kurt will make the announcement, publicly, next.

Tonight, EC3 Vs Rhino will take place. Rhino makes it clear he is sending EC3 to hell.

Bobby Roode is in the ring. Last week, he and Eric Young couldn’t have a finish. So Kurt thought the best decision is to have a one on one rematch between Roode Vs EY.

Bobby asks for EY to come to the ring.

EY and Bobby have had quite a history with each other. They were a part of Team Canada, they have had battles for the World Heavyweight Title. But next week, it will be different.

The winner gets a World Title match, and no matter what happens next week, he is fine with whatever happens because there is no other man with more respect than he has with Eric.

This seems like faith with what happens next week. The end could have been any different, but next week, Eric Young Vs Bobby Roode is in the cards.

EY has done many interviews, and he has answered Bobby Roode is the best wrestler in the business. Now, on any other day, Bobby can be the better man, but next week….Eric will be better.

Bobby brings up there is nothing else to do other than to tear the rook off this son of a bitch, next week.

And that they should do.

The Bromans are doing a mobile game.

The Bromans are going to hook up with a Knockout later tonight.

Also tonight, Team 3-D Vs The Hardys Vs The Wolves.

Trouble time with EC3. He faces Rhino, next.

EC3 is DQd when he nailed Rhino with a chair, repeatedely.

EC3 continues to hit him with chairshots, and Spud stops him, but is scared.

The Great Sanada is revealed, next.

Chris Melendez debuts tonight, a wounded warrior and true American hero.

“Cowboy” James Storm heads to the ring.

He is the leader of a new revolution of men that need a rebirth and awakening. The first of man, here is The Great Sanada.

The Great Sanada is dressed completely like The Great Muta, with facepaint.

The Great Sanada Vs Austin Aries, now.

The Great Sanada wins with green mist in the eyes, and a kick to the head.

Storm approves of this.

We see this great video piece on Chris Melendez. He sacrificed so much for this country. He lost his leg in battle, and when he came home, he wanted to become a professional wrestler.

Tonight, Chris Melendez makes his TNA debut.

Kurt is in the ring with Mr. Anderson and Team 3-D.

Mr. Anderson welcomes Chris and he tells us that his favorite chairity is Wounded Warrior. The man who heads it gave him a call, and asked told him about Chris. He asked Ken if he had a ring he can train Chris on. Ken didn’t, but he knew who did.

Bully Ray met with Chris, and asked him about his story. Chris had 2 dreams. 1. To battle at the frontline in battle, and 2. To become a professional wrestler. So Bully and Devon both decided they would train him for free, because that was the least they could do since Chris did so much for our country.

Very nice story here, and Chris has begun the TNA journey.

Next week, Eric Young Vs Bobby Roode, for the Number One Contender for the World Title. Also, Taryn Terrell faces Gail Kim, for the Knockout Title.

But our main event is next. Team 3-D Vs The Hardys Vs The Wolves.

Team 3-D wins the first series with a Team 3-D, pinning Davey Richards.

Team 3-D now gets to choose the stipulation to their next match.

The show ends here and next week, we will see Bobby Roode Vs Eric Young in a Number One Contenders match.

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/25/14…Cena Addresses The Nation

We are in Anaheim, California. Jerry “The King” Lawler confirms that John Cena has invoked his rematch clause, and will face Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Title at Night of Champions.

Michael Cole welcomes us to the very first WWE Hall of Fame Forum.

He introduces us to Hulk Hogan, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, and Shawn Michaels.

Cole brings up Lesnar defeating Cena at Summerslam, and now Cena Vs Lesnar at Night of Champions.

Shawn doesn’t think Cena has a shot, and Flair agrees. At some point, we all have to reach those crossroads, and see that his time has passed.

Hogan believes in Cena, and he can still go.

Flair agrees with Shawn, but Flair thinks the world of Cena. He is “The Franchise” and a 15-time World Champion. Does he want Cena against Brock? No, he doesn’t feel it.

Cole wants Hogan’s thoughts.

Hogan believes in Cena, and now the legends are bickering about this. Cena just doesn’t have a chance. Hogan brings up their first match at Extreme Rules 2012, Cena took a beating, but found a way to win.

This is the rubber match, and someway, somehow, Cena will find a way to win.

Flair and Shawn do not truly believe that.

Now here comes Cena.

Cena isn’t selling any injury here.

Everyone is weighing in after what happened to Cena at Summerslam. Everyone from The Authority to Paul Heyman to a very vocal WWE Universe, and now the legends.

Cena wants to say he has the utmost respect for all three of them. They have all influenced him in some way. Shawn as a personal friend, and professional, to Flair, from a professional, to some recreational times. Without Hogan, there would be no John Cena.

Cena had 16 German Suplexes, he can’t beat around the bush, he got his ass whooped. Shawn said it changes a man, and his answer hasn’t changed, he wants to face Brock again. But he got his ass kicked, why would he want to do it again? Because it won’t happen again.

He wants to make this crystal clear, he is not going to Night of Champions to beat Brock Lesnar, he is going to Night of Champions to beat Brock Lesnar’s ass.

Tonight, Cena faces Bray Wyatt in a Wrestlemania 30 rematch.

Also tonight, World Tag Team Title match, it will be Goldust and Stardust face The Uso’s. And next, Rusev Vs Jack Swagger.

Next week, WCW Monday Nitro will debut on WWE Network, it’s about damn time.

Rusev Vs Swagger, now.

Rusev wins when the ref stops the match, because Swagger could not continue, despite never tapping out. Doctors check on Swagger, it seems he might have hurt his ribs.

King is going to call out The Bellas to revolve their differences, and next, we will have RVD Vs Cesaro to determine the Number One Contender to the United States Title.

We come back to see Swagger in the trainer’s room being tended to. Bo Dallas intervenes, telling Swagger he let his country again. When will he realize if he wants to succeed, all he has to do is BOlieve.

Sheamus is at the commentary booth, to look over RVD vs Cesaro, now.

Cesaro wins the match with a Neutralizer. He looks at the United States Title, and threw it right back at Sheamus.

Attitude Week is set up for WWE Network, and we will also get the first 100 hours of Monday Nitro. Plus tomorrow night, a new episode of “Monday Night Wars”, all of this for $9.99 a month.

Tonight, John Cena Vs Bray Wyatt.

The Divas Champion Paige is skipping to the ring, she is up next.

Paige Vs Natalya, now.

Paige wins with the Paige Turner.

Here comes AJ Lee.

AJ is skipping around the ring, Natalya catches Paige with a haymaker, and walks away.

AJ is here to tell Paige that he loves Paige and gives her an awkward hug. AJ kisses Paige’s hand, and skips around.

Tonight, John Cena Vs Bray Wyatt.

Next, it’s The Eulogy of Dean Ambrose from Seth Rollins.

Kane comes to the ring, for the Eulogy of Dean Ambrose.

We are here to honor the unstable, lunatic Dean Ambrose. But this isn’t to honor the dead, this is to honor the future of WWE….Mr. Money in the Bank….Seth Rollins.

Seth seems bothered by this, he was the leader of the most dominant group of WWE, in The Shield. There was a reason why he hand-picked Dean to be a part of the group. Dean Ambrose was a courageous fighter, but last week he had to prove at his expense that The Authority always wins.

We see footage from last week.

Seth is laughing about this, and Kane is proud.

Can you imagine the moment of impact when Seth crushed Dean’s hand in the cinder blocks? Do we think it dawned him he was overmatched mentally, and physically. It was no accident the cinder blocks were out there. And the headaches Dean will have for the rest of his life wasn’t an accident too. And two words, will cement in Dean’s life….what if? What if Dean had just simply walk away when he had that opportunity. The real tragedy is we will never truly know, because it is highly unlikely we will ever see Dean Ambrose again.

Rollins is the one that created The Shield, and now he is the one who destroyed it.

Enter Roman Reigns.

Reigns takes care of Kane, and is now left with Rollins.

He sets up Rollins with a spear, but “Corporate” Kane saves Seth.

Earlier tonight, we kicked the show off with a Hall of Fame forum, and John Cena shows up.

Tonight, Cena Vs Wyatt.

Backstage, Goldust and Stardust have an opportunity to achieve their destiny. Tonight, their stars become aligned. Tonight, they will be Tag Team Champions.

That match is next.

Goldust and Stardust win the match by countout. Goldust doesn’t want to accept the win like this. Goldust accuses The Uso’s to get counted out on purpose. They want their rematch now. Then they attack The Uso’s.

A Fanmily Reconciliation tonight with The Bellas.

The Beast Speaks, next.

Rollins and Kane are backstage, I guess The Authority have another “vacation” because Kane is in charge.

Handicap match is set up with Reigns Vs Kane and Rollins.

Hours after Summerslam, WWE caught up with the WWE World Champion, Brock Lesnar.

Winning the title was the greatest accomplishment he ever had, conquering the WWE. He hit a F-5 right away to give Cena a chance to lay down, but this “don’t give up” BS caught up to Cena, and it didn’t do him any favors.

Heyman brings up the only reason Cena survived is because Brock took pity on Cena and ended the fight.

Brock is humiliated by Cena even inflicting his rematch clause. How dare Cena doing that. This was a bad mistake, and Lesnar brings up John’s father, sitting him down as a little boy and saying so much garbage.

Cena isn’t even going to get up, Lesnar doesn’t even feel bad for him. Because for the last 12 years, Cena has been living on this. Mark Brock’s words, Night of Champions, this will be Cena’s last night in this universe. Game over, almost brings a tear to his eye.

The IC Champion, Dolph Ziggler is in action, next.

Ziggler Vs The Miz.

But wait, The Miz needs a stunt double, so he will bring in Damien Sandow.

Ziggler hits a Zig Zag for the win.

A Family Reconciliation is next.

Jerry “The King” Lawler is in the ring, telling us the most shocking moment of Summerslam was when Nikki Bella turned on her sister Brie. But then, the slap heard around the world last Monday night.

King calls both Bellas to the ring, and here they come.

Nikki is upset that Brie can’t even get her own entrance music. But Brie said this was about her best friend ending her trust. Brie knows that Nikki’s heart is hurt, she quit to protect her husband, and had no idea that witch, Stephanie McMahon would take advantage of her. Forget the WWE, forget Total Divas. This is Briana talking to Nicole.

Nikki isn’t buying this. Nikki is the selfish, egotistical one, and Brie is the family woman. But she knows the real Brie. She has always been trying to take the spotlight. She pleads Brie to stop acting like an angel. Brie has been holding Nikki back. She is so done with all of us, and is done with the family. She is so over Brie’s scraggly hair, her “Save the Earth” crap, and she is done with her cabin, and she is over her goat-face troll Daniel Bryan. Brie Bella stole her boyfriends growing up. Brie tells Nikki that she is lying. One thing Nikki isn’t lying is Brie quit on Nikki when she left. Nikki was put in 3-on-1 matches, and getting smashed, while brie was watching it at home, to see if she was trending on Twitter.

Brie starts to cry over this, and Nikki says this is Brie, a crier. King tries to intervene, she tells him to leave “old man” and stay out of this. As far as Nikki is concerned, she has no sister and wishes Brie had died in the womb.

Now Nikki shoves Brie off the chair, with King trying to stop Nikki. Nikki then slaps King across the face, and screams she has no sister and Brie is dead to her.

Switching gears now, and we see footage of The Hall of Fame forum again, with John Cena coming in.

Next, 2-on-1 Handicap match with “Corporate” Kane and Seth Rollins Vs Roman Reigns.

Rollins causes a DQ, nailing Reigns with his MITB briefcase.

Reigns takes care of both men, and send Rollins to the back, and lays out “Corporate” Kane.

Bray Wyatt interrupts the WWE Network plug.

Wyatt believes that Cena is a former shell of himself, and now that shell is cracked. What kind of man would Bray be if he would let him continue? He is a man of mercy. Bray will put him down, but don’t worry, it is so much nicer in the other side.

Run….

This Friday night on Smackdown, Big Show and Mark Henry Vs Rown and Harper.

Los Matadores Vs SlaterGator.

Los Matadores pick up the upset victory. I mean, SlaterGator are over, Los Matadores are not.

Again, the same damn footage from earlier tonight with the Hall of Fame Forum.

Cena Vs Bray Wyatt is tonight.

Kofi Kingston Vs Bo Dallas now. We all BOlieve.

BO believes, he hit a BO-Dog, and wins.

Kofi isn’t like Jack Swagger. He only allowed himself down, but Swagger let down his entire country. And they must both BOlieve.

Swagger came out and attacked Bo.

Next week, Chris Jericho will return with The Highlight Reel, with Jericho’s guest Randy Orton.

Main event time, John Cena Vs Bray Wyatt.

Cena completely squashes Bray, but Rowan and Harper come in to cause the DQ, and here comes Show and Henry.

Just like a “Teddy Long” moment, we have a 6-man tag match as our real main event.

Cena, Henry, and Show win when Cena makes Harper tap to the STU.

Attitude Adjustment now on Bray. Wow, Bray has lot alot of steam lately, and this surely does not help.

3 AA’s to the Wyatt Family. John Cena is ready for his 1,800th rematch for the title.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a boring, and completely wasted 3 hours of Raw. Might be the worst episode of the year.

It’s bad when the highlight of the show is finding out that WCW Monday Nitro is coming to WWE Network next week.

Your thoughts of the show? Do you agree, or disagree? Send me your thoughts.

Impact Wrestling 8/20/14…Hardcore Justice 2014

Tonight, on the very first Impact Wrestling on Wednesday night, we present Hardcore Justice.  Our main event is a 6-Side of Steel Cage main event, 6 men vie for the opportunity to face Bobby Lashley.  We will also see Samoa Joe face Lo-Ki for the X-Division Title.  We will also see Bram Vs Abyss in a Stairway To Janice match.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Taz and Mike Tenay welcome us to the show, and we kick off Abyss Vs Bram in a Stairway to Janice match, now.

Bram defeats Abyss again, this time taking Janice from Abyss, kicking him in the balls, and whacking him in the gut.

So now Janice is in possession of Bram.

The camera guy wants to catch up with EC3, Spud, and Rhino.  His time in jail has allowed him to ponder on things, and those who are responsible will be held accountable, next.

Moments ago, Bram defeats Abyss in a Stairway to Janice match.

Backstage, Magnus and Bram celebrate.  Magnus tells Bram now that he was victorious, he will win the 6-Sides of Steel match, and become the new Number One Contender.

EC3, Rhino, and Spud all come to the ring.

2 weeks ago, the most heinous incident happened, when his Aunt D was put through a table.  The New York people love to see an innocent woman get put through a table.

Last week, he demanded Bully Ray be terminated immediately, but Kurt Angle had him arrested.  And Kurt, for that he has something to say….thank you.  Because he had a moment of clarity, and while Bully Ray was responsible, someone else was responsible too.  A man he brought in from the streets, a man he paid well….Rhino….This is all your fault.

Rhino owes Ethan.

Rhino tells him to forget him, and he might be looking at a dead man if he doesn’t shut up.  He would rather be dirt poor than to take money from a bitch ass.  So take your money, and stick it up your ass.

EC3 slaps him, and now the two men fight.

EC3 even shoves Spud, and lays a kick to the head on Rhino.

This might be a new side to EC3.

Joe is backstage, he has a history with Lo-Ki, with blood.  So tonight, Lo-Ki is supremely self-confident he can beat him for his X-Division Title.  So many people are self-confident in beating him, but then they wind up losing.

The Hardys are in the back, they still have to prove they are the best tag team in the world.  They promise us they will be at the forefront of the tag team movement.

Joe Vs Lo-Ki, now.

Joe retains his title with a Muscle Buster.  I was hoping this match was longer, but I have a feeling we aren’t done with this.  I did like hearing Tenay comment Lo-Ki was the 2nd X-Division Champion in the history of the company, beating AJ Styles.

The Hardys want to talk to Team 3-D.

JB is with Mr. Anderson, who is upset he freed “The Creepy Bastard” Samuel Shaw, and Samuel takes the exception to talking about his friend, and the two men fight as we go to a break.

Anderson makes Samuel Shaw quit with an Armbar.  Gunner watches this, and Anderson walks away from him.

The Hardys walk away from Team 3-D satisfied.  Bully Ray and Devon head to the ring, The Hardys have a great idea, and now there is only one more piece to the puzzle, and they need to find out if they are in.

Next, Tenay’s exclusive interview with Dixie Carter.

We see footage from last week when after her Fatal 4-way, Gail Kim gave an interview and Angelina Love attacked her.

Gail went to Kurt and demanded she has a Last Knockout Standing Match with Angelina.  Kurt warns Angelina be careful what you wish for, you might get it.

Earlier tonight, Bobby Roode shares his thoughts on the 6-Sides of Steel match later tonight, and what it means to be World Heavyweight Champion.

The Hardys are in the ring now.

Jeff makes it clear they did not get back together, because they wanted to, the fans wanted it.  And they have had some great matches since coming back, but they can get better.  They will get better, and they ask Team 3-D to get into the ring.

Do you know who they are?  They are the guys that put Dixie Carter through a table.

The Hardys and Team 3-D have made some history together.  Not because they say it, but because the fans say it, two of the best tag teams in the history of the business.  The Hardys are on a mission because they want to be Tag Team Champions.  And it would be kinda cool if they were inducted in the TNA Hall of Fame as Tag Team Champions.

The Hardys aren’t the champions, Team 3-D aren’t the champions, we need the Tag Team Champions to get this done.

You ask, and here they come.

Eddie Edwards wants to get down to business.  These four are 2 of the greatest tag teams in the history of our business.  And that is the conversation The Wolves want to be a part of.

Davey makes it clear, Team 3-D, you want a shot at these belts?  The Hardys, you want a shot at these belts?  Anytime, they will make it happen.

Tenay interviews Dixie Carter.

Dixie broke her back, she knows that Bully made a promise, and delivered on it.  She is taking time off, but we haven’t seen the last of Dixie Carter.  But keep watching Ethan Carter, he is a true talent, and going places.

More or less the interview.

The Great Sanada will be revealed next week.  But now, Last Knockout Standing match, with Angelina Love Vs Gail Kim, now.

Gail Kim wins with a Samoan Drop on a chair.  Incredible match with the Knockout Champion retaining her title.

Next is the 6-Sides of Steel match.

Kurt Angle confirms to us that all 3 tag teams, The Hardys, Team 3-D, and The Wolves came to Kurt to propose Kurt to a match to determine who is the best tag team.  Kurt is doing one thing better, we will have a best of series tag match.  The first team to score 2 wins get the Tag Team Titles, and that starts next week, with the winner choosing the next stipulation for the next match.

The Franchise Players make their presence now.

MVP tells him that in Dallas for Slammiversary, he was scheduled to wrestle for the World Heavyweight Title with Eric Young, but was injured.  Bobby Lashley slid right in, and the rest they say is history.  Now Lashley has overcome all odds, faced off against competitor after competitor, and finished them off.  Whoever wins this match will have the same fate.

6-Sides of Steel Cage match now.  Gunner Vs “Showtime” Eric Young Vs “Cowboy” James Storm Vs Magnus Vs Austin Aries Vs Bobby Roode.

They did the double finish here where both Bobby Roode and Eric Young touched the floor at the same time.  2 refs awarded different winners, so who won?

Next week, who is the best tag team?  The Wolves Vs The Hardys Vs Team 3-D, match one.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A new night for Impact.  I liked the matches, but there were too many promos for me.  If you had cut down Anderson Vs Shaw, the promo for EC3 and Rhino, even the Dixie Carter promo seemed a bit odd in this spot.  The only promo that seemed suitable were The Wolves, Team 3-D, and The Hardys, because it’s setting up a future match.  Less talking, more action would have been better, especially in some of these matches.

But a good start to Wednesday night, giving us more important matches, and I love the Best of Series here.  We will see where that goes.

And I loved the World Champion was there to remind us he has the gold.  What happens next week?  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/18/14…Ambrose Vs Rollins Steals The Show

I just got done watching a rare thing, Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football, so now I am catching up with Raw, watched a bit of it during commercials, and know the main event.

But here we go.

The biggest party of the summer took place last night.  Brock Lesnar dominated John Cena to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  Brie Bella lost to Stephanie McMahon, when Brie’s sister Nikki Bella turned her back, and sided with “The Billion Dollar Princess”.

We are live in Las Vegas, with Daniel Bryan’s music kicking the show off, but it’s Stephanie McMahon, wearing a Daniel Bryan-esque shirt that says Steph!!  Steph!!  Steph!!

Steph wants to talk about last night, with Summerslam being one of the most epic PPVs, with people even saying it was better than Wrestlemania.  Because we crowned a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and The Authority will be presenting a new title to Brock Lesnar.  And The Authority wishes John Cena a speedy recovery, who endured 16 German Suplexes.

Chris Jericho was defeated by Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose found out that Seth Rollins was the true master of The Shield, when Mr. Money in the Bank won his match last night.  And of course, Stephanie McMahon won her match last night, and Brie Bella found out you never can beat The Authority spiritually, mentally, and physically.  

And of course, you can see all of this on The WWE Network for just $9.99.

But she didn’t do this by herself.  Steph likes to thank her husband HHH for being faithful, and being her rock.  Unlike Daniel Bryan.  But Daniel knows the real Brie Bella, and she is not the person you think she is and who better to explain that but her sister, Nikki Bella.

Some people believe this was an act of betrayal, and she wants to hear from Nikki’s side.

When The Bellas first came to WWE, it was supposed to be about them vs the world.  Nikki always cared for her sister, she always was looking out for her.  But secretly, Brie did not become the woman she thought she was.  Brie has become so jealous of Nikki.  It was always about competition with Nikki, and Brie always told her she would never get married.

Stephanie suggests that Nikki jumped to a marriage, and Nikki said that Nikki won, because Brie settled for that gangly, goat-face Daniel Bryan.

Nikki is so heart-broken over this, she can say she lost a sister, but she never really had one.  And now she doesn’t have Brie around her neck, she is free.  She loves to say that.

And here comes Brie, with no music, and a purpose.

Brie is Nikki’s sister, and she loves her.  Nikki has destroyed their family, and she can forgive her for what happened last night.

This irate Nikki, and she slaps Brie and tells her Nikki can never forgive Brie.

Brie walks away, crying and the crowd chants she sold out.

Tonight, Brock Lesnar will receive his new WWE World Heavyweight Title.

Next, Mark Henry and The Big Show Vs Rowan and Harper.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw…Nikki Bella slapping the taste out of Brie,

Rowan and Harper Vs Show and Henry is now.

Henry and Show win with a combined KO Punch and World’s Strongest Slam, pinning Rowan.

Are these the next Tag Team Champions?

Tonight, IC Title rematch, Dolph Ziggler Vs The Miz, and 6-man tag match of Reigns, RVD, and Sheamus Vs Rybaxel and Orton.

Next, relive Ambrose Vs Rollins from last night.

Ric Flair congratulates Ziggler, and The Miz interrupts.

Miz calls this a sequel, because tonight the IC Title comes back to the A-Lister.  Ziggler tells him he is not an A-Lister, just an A-Hole.

WOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Ambrose Vs Rollins last night, from Summerslam is being shown.

Renee Young is with Seth Rollins.

It feels good, because Seth did what he said was going to do, and showed not only is he the future WWE World Heavyweight Champion, but he is also the future of WWE.

Dean Ambrose drops a bucket of water over Rollins, an ice bucket challenge, it seems.  The two men fight when we go to a commercial.

We see footage of what we just saw, Ambrose and Rollins fighting again.

Kane is talking to HHH, when Seth Rollins wants to out Ambrose out.  HHH is giving Seth a rematch with Dean, tonight.  The WWE Universe will decide the stipulation.

This way, when Rollins finishes Ambrose for good, the blood will be in the fans hands.

Natalya Vs the new Divas Champion, Paige,

Paige wants to make this clear, she respects AJ, and loves her.  Paige is going to dedicate this match to AJ.

Natalya wins with a rollup, after AJ comes skipping along.

Paige is irate, and AJ has the mic.

Despite everything, AJ respects Paige.  She loves her Paige, and she dedicates her life to Paige.  She needs to get in the ring and shake her hand.

Paige leaves, when AJ comes in the ring.

Cole tells us the stipulations tonight the fans get to vote on WWE App.  Either A.  No Holds Barred Match, B.  Falls Count Anywhere, and C.  No DQ.

The new WWE World Heavyweight Champion will be awarded his new title, “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar is next.

The Authority makes their appearance.

HHH tells us that last night was historic.  Not only was his wife victorious, after being out of the ring for 10 years, but two men battled and gave it their best for the richest prize in our industry, to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and tonight that man is rewarded the newest title, Brock Lesnar.

Brock and Paul Heyman show up in the ring.

Photo op now with The Authority, Heyman, and Lesnar.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman, and he is the one behind the one who conquered the one who thought he was the one who is the one at 21-1.

His client conquered the title holder, which gives him the opportunity to be the advocate of the reigning, defending, new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar.

His client has advised him to leak out John Cena isn’t even here tonight.  John Cena would be here, if he could be here.  But Cena can’t be here, because he is not physically able to be here, and that’s thanks to his client….BAAAAARAWK LESNAR!!!!

Heyman has been in this industry for many years and he has never seen such an ass kicking of a top superstar.  Dwayne Johnson’s run on top was what?  3 years?  “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s run was what, 4 1/2 years?  But there has been one man dominate WWE for 10 years, main events Wrestlemania, the one man who has been the face of the franchise, John Cena.

He was standing there last night, looking at the punishment John Cena took, so much that his own kids are Cena fans, which pisses him off.  But if he had time, he would make Cena a Paul Heyman guy.  But this is not Brock Lesnar’s thoughts.

Cena is a martyr, and if the guy with the most cred dies, he still dies.  Just like The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at Wrestlemania died, just like The Undertaker’s career dies.  Just like Cena’s WWE Title reign dies, at the hands of Brock Lesnar.  Just like Cena won’t be seen for a long time.  

And here lies the problem, any man who faces Brock, will be destroyed, because Brock isn’t just human, he is a Beast.  We have Brockanomics now, Eat, Sleep, Suplex, Repeat, and Heyman says that 16 times.

Eat, sleep, conquer John Cena.

Cena took 16 suplexes by Lesnar, but Cena would not quit.

Also we kicked off Raw tonight, when Nikki slapped Brie.

Also tonight, Ambrose Vs Rollins, with the fans choosing the stipulation.

Ziggler Vs The Miz is up now.

Miz wins with a countout, when Ziggler’s leg was bothering him in the ring.

Renee is joining by Jack Swagger.

Last night was an opportunity to win for his country, but he failed.  But he won’t give up, he will keep on fighting, because that us what they do…..We The People.

Swagger Vs Cesaro.

Cesaro wins with a Neutralizer, over Jack. The story here was Jack being depressed over losing last night to Rusev. After being caught, Bo Dallas showed up. Bo tells Swagger he was let down by 316 million Americans, but he can get right back up, he just has to BOlieve.

They show us Jericho Vs Wyatt footage, Renee Young is with Chris. He tells us that he is okay after losing last night, because no matter what he does, he has the best fans in the world. And Bray does not, he gets the crowd to chant Y2J, and that is it.

Next, 6-man tag match of Reigns, RVD, and Sheamus Vs Rybaxel and Orton.

Sheamus, Reigns, and RVD win the match with a Five Star Frogsplash by RVD, pinning Axel.

Earlier tonight, Dean Ambrose attacked Seth Rollins.

We get to choose the stipulation for their match tonight.

Orton is backstage, and runs into Ric Flair.

Orton doesn’t want to hear any advice, and blows him off.

Bray Wyatt shows up on the screen.

Bray told Jericho this would happen, he is a man of his word. Chris said he looked into Wyatt’s eyes, and sees a lost soul. Maybe Chris is right, but he will never be able to comprehend what Bray is. Behold the new face of salvation.

Follow The Buzzard.

The Usos Vs Stardust and Goldust, now.

Stardust and Goldust win in a non-title match with Stardust pinning Jey.

Tonight, Dean Ambrose Vs Seth Rollins.

Friday night on Smackdown, Randy Orton Vs RVD.

Rusev and Lana come out to the ring.

At Summerslam, Rusev dedicated his match to mother Russia, and its leader Vladimir Putin. Putin is very proud of Rusev, and the flag was raised high, to symbolize domination.

Somebody’s going to get their ass kicked…here comes Mark Henry.

The crowd chants USA, and Mark asked if they heard that, its American pride. He has had the honor of representing his country two times in the Olympics.

Something he will never take away from him, and he has no issue with country pride, but it’s the way the two jackasses act.

Last night, it bothered him seeing the flag being raised, and hearing the Russian Anthem.

Mark will give Rusev a personal guided tour into the Hall of Pain.

World’s Strongest Slam by Mark Henry, flattening Rusev.

Now another splash, ending this segment.

Earlier tonight, Brock Lesnar told us he dominates, Cena isn’t even in the building tonight, because of what Brock did to him last night.

Next week, Cena returns to Raw.

King is in the ring, to tell us what kind of stipulation Rollins Vs Ambrose will have.

Falls Count Anywhere Match.

And here we go.

Rollins wins what was an incredible main event, by giving Ambrose a Curb Stomp through a concrete step. Kane even interfered, giving Ambrose a chokeslam that did not break on the announce table. But the action was crazy, and the show ends with EMTs tending to Ambrose, with Rollins smirking about his fallen enemy.

Kevin’s Thoughts

It was a decent show overall, but things turned for the better with a phenomenal main event. The one thing this reminds me of is the fact all three members of The Shield can compete in the main event. All three can be future champions, and no reason why the brand should revolve around one man anymore. The biggest problem with WWE since John Cena became the franchise is there are no rivalries.

This can change, and hopefully it does. I always loved Hart-Austin, or Hart-Michaels, Rock-Austin. Who has Cena’s rivalry been? The closest he has had might be Cena-Punk, or Cena-Orton, but as much as I like Randy, he isn’t in Cena’s league.

Other than that, the other two highlights were Stephanie, Nikki, and Brie Bella segment kicking the show off. I’ll say this again, Stephanie is the best heel in the business, bar none. She showed it again, and I loved the slap Nikki gave Brie.

The other highlight was Lesnar and Heyman. Paul was having fun, and Brock was laughing a bit at what Heyman was saying.

Nothing on Night of Champions, but we are 5 weeks away, so it’s no big deal. But after the beating Lesnar gave Cena at Summerslam, Cena does not deserve another title match, but sadly, he will get it.

What did you think of the show? Send me your thoughts here.

WWE Summerslam 8/17/14…The Biggest Fight of the Summer

Tonight, the biggest fight of the summer takes place inside the Staples Canter, in Los Angeles, California.

Renee Young, Booker T, Ric Flair, and Alex Riley are a part of the Summerslam Kick-off show.

Tonight, Brock Lesnar faces John Cena for the WWE World Title.

We are previewing Brie Bella Vs Stephanie McMahon.

Michael Cole, Jerry “The King” Lawler, and JBL welcome us to the show.

RVD Vs Cesaro is up now.

RVD pulls off a stunning upset over Cesaro with the Five Star Frogsplash.  Cesaro’s downfall continues.

Tonight, Roman Reigns will face Randy Orton.

Brock Lesnar Vs John Cena preview.

Summerslam starts now.

Hulk Hogan kicks off Summerslam, it feels like home.

Hogan tells us to buy WWE Network for $9.99.

A complete waste of time, because chances are if we are watching Summerslam, live….then we already know it’s $9.99.

Okay, Summerslam is officially on.

Our first match is Dolph Ziggler Vs The Miz, for the Intercontinental Title.

Tonight, we are blessed to be in a pressence of a non-CGI movie star.  We wish we all had this….the moneymaker.

Tonight, The Miz will make Ziggler from a shining new star to a fizzled has-been.  Just like the Lakers.

Ziggler Vs Miz is now.

Dolph Ziggler wins the IC Title when he pins Miz with a Zig Zag.  Ziggler kicked out of a Skull Crushing Finale, and this had Miz puzzled for a bit, but the challenger rises to the occasion.

Ziggler is now a 2-time IC Champion.

We see the trainwreck from last week on Raw, when we had Brie Bella arrested for slapping Megan Miller.

Tom Miller is standing by with Brie Bella.

During her time in jail, Brie did some reflecting, and know that when you fall down, you keep getting back up.  She was thinking about all of the times Stephanie smiled calling her husband “A B+ Player” or the times that she tortured her sister, because of the dealings she had with Brie, or the time that she paid Daniel’s physical therapist to lie.  Stephanie will pay for those things, and this is the rare time Staphanie will pay back from the things she has said, and that is best for business.

AJ Lee Vs Paige for the Divas Title is now.

Paige wins the match, and Divas Title when she hit a DDT called the Rampaige.

2 matches, 2 title changes.

Now Paige hugs and kisses her “frenemy” on the cheek.

Our next match is Rusev Vs Jack Swagger in a Flag Match.

Lana tells us that Rusev represents reality, while Swagger represents dreams.  There is no happy ending for our U.S.A.

Marine corps are now coming out to Swagger’s entrance.

Swagger must win here, I think.

So this Flag match had nothing to do with trying to grab the flag on the other end of the ring, or a pole.  It was just a regular match, so we had Swagger tap out to the Accolade.

Rusev kicked Colter, to brush him off Swagger.

So the rules of the Flag match is to raise it, and play the Russian National Anthem.

Okay.

Switching gears, Seth Rollins Vs Dean Ambrose in a Lumberjack match is now.

Seth Rollins defeated Ambrose with the MITB briefcase.  This was action throughout the entire building, not even the lumberjacks could contain them.  Kane comes out, and makes sure Rollins wins.

So far, the match of the night.

Bray Wyatt Vs Chris Jericho is up now.

Bray Wyatt hits 2 Sister Abigails, one on the barricade, other one in the ring.  Bray picks up the win, and evens this series 1-1.  I am sure we will get another match.

Bray is on the mic, and tells us Chris just found out what its like to follow the buzzards,  He’s got the whole world in his hands….

Stephanie McMahon Vs Brie Bella is next.

Stephanie wins the match when the ref was knocked out, and Nikki Bella turns on her own sister and decks Brie.  Steph hits the Pedigree, and pins Brie.

A very good match and the ending was effective.

Randy Orton Vs Roman Reigns is up now.

Reigns wins with a spear, pinning Orton.  The match started slow, and it didn’t help it was in the “kiss of death” spot on the card, but the ending was very cool, and we saw an amazing RKO from Orton that woke up the crowd.

Announcers are putting this match over as the biggest win in Roman Reigns’ career.

Our main event, Brock Lesnar Vs John Cena is up now.

Lesnar completely dominates Cena, hits 16 German Suplexes, pins him after a 4th F-5.  I mean completely destroyed Cena here.

As Cole put it, for the first time in 10 years, Lesnar is the WWE Champion.

Cena is being checked on by EMTs, with Heyman and Lesnar celebrating outside of the ring.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This show delivered in my opinion.  It started off with a very good Lumberjack match, and we even had a good Stephanie Vs Brie match.

That might have been the most dominating WWE World Title match since the night Diesel beat Bob Backlund in MSG.

Bray Wyatt Vs Jericho told a good story, and all 3 titles changed hands.

So where do we go from here?  Tune in, because the story is about go in a different direction.  Share your thoughts about the show here.  I will talk to you tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Impact Wrestling 8/14/14…One More Time….The Hardys Vs Team 3-D

Last week, after fulfilling his promise, putting Dixie Carter through a table, how does Bull Ray top that?

Impact Wrestling is now.

This is the biggest moment in Bully Ray’s career.  And this isn’t just for Bully, but it’s also for the fans.  And Bully had the best tag team partner in the world.  Hawk had Animal.  Bret had The Anvil. Scott Had Rick, and Bully has Devon.

Devon shows up to the ring, now.

Devon is honored to be back in TNA Wrestling, and the greatest city of the world, New York City.

Here come The Hardy Boys.

It’s been 12 years since these four men have been in the ring together.  They are happy to have Team 3-D being TNA Hall of Famers.  But these men have a history together.

Bully talks about that Triple Threat Ladder Match they had in Anaheim.  They also had another one in North Carolina.  And another in the Astrodome.

The crowd wants one more match, and all four men seem to agree.

Jeff painted his face, so if it’s cool with Matt, it’s cool with Jeff.  And Devon?  Oh my brother, testify.

Footage of Samoa Joe winning the X-Division Title last week.

Joe brings up his talk with Kurt.  It’s time to reinvigorate the X-Division, and that starts tonight.

EC3, Rhino, and Rockstar Spud enter the building, we find out what is on their mind, next.

Last Thursday, we see many different angles of Dixie Carter being sent through a table.  We will also have an update on Dixie, later tonight.

Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, and Eric Young are backstage.  Later tonight, those 3 men, all former World Champions face The Franchise Players.  Took out the garbage last week, time to do it again.

X-Division Scramble match is up now.

Manik Vs Homicide Vs Lo-Ki Vs Tigre Uno Vs Crazzy Steve Vs DJ Z.

Winner faces Joe for the X-Division Title, next week on Impact.

Lo-Ki wins the scramble, pinning Homicide with the K-Crusher.  Lo-Ki Vs Joe, next week.

Impact Wrestling moves to Wednesday night, starting next week.  Again, Impact moves to Wednesday night,s starting next week.

EC3, Spud, and Rhino are out, next.

Spud tells us we need a moment of silence, because last week, the biggest travesty happened.  Our “Madame” Dixie Carter, was put through a table.

The crowd isn’t obliging, and EC3 demands a termination of Bully Ray.  He will stand out here, until he is terminated.

Here comes Kurt Angle.

This isn’t Nashville, Tennessee Mr. Carter, this is New York City.  These fans can say whatever they want, they can cheer for whoever they want.  They deserve the best show possible, and frankly, don’t need this.  So EC3 will either wrestle tonight, or he will get the hell out of the ring.

Ethan spilled blood last week in this ring, so he isn’t going to wrestle this week.  They aren’t going to wrestle tonight.

Kurt calls for New York City’s finest to remove them from the ring.

Rockstar Spud isn’t taking this, he has diplomatic immunity, and he is angry.

Cops don’t care, and they put handcuffs on Spud and Rhino.

Carter isn’t taking this lying down.  He has money, he knows Trump, Bernie, and Carmelo.  He is Mr. Wallstreet, The Weath of Wallstreet, the Carter of Wallstreet.  If cops want money, he has money.

They aren’t interested, they take them all away.

Samuel Shaw blames himself for last week.  Gunner tells him it’s not, he and Ken will settle their differences.  But maybe Ken just won’t see Samuel has changed.  It’s okay, they will all settle their differences.

Ethan is trying to plead with the cops with letting them go, but they are all booking them in jail.

Anderson Vs Gunner, now.

Gunner is DQ’d, when Shaw interferes, he tried to play peacemaker, but Anderson decked him.

Nothing is settled.

Tonight, Fatal 4-Way for the Knockout Title.  Gail Kim Vs Angelina Love Vs Taryn Terrell Vs Velvet Sky.

Angelina checks on Velvet to make sure they are on the same page.  Velvet tells her one of them will walk out as Knockout Champion.

Next, we will see exclusive footage from Dixie Carter.

The entire wrestling landscape made their comments last week on Twitter, even Jim Ross.

Footage from last week is being shown.

Dixie broke her back, she had a L2 and L3 fracture.  

Next week, Mike Tenay will have an exclusive interview with Dixie Carter.

Fatal 4-way match for the Knockout Title is up now.  Gail Kim Vs Angelina Vs Velvet Vs Taryn.

Gail wins the match with Eat Defeat, pinning Angelina and adding some tension with Beautiful People.

Franchise Players do not care about Dixie Carter, she is the old, and they are the new.  

Big 6-man tag match is up next.

Lashley, King, and MVP Vs Aries, Young, and Roode is up now.

Franchise Players win, with a vicious spear by Lashley, pinning Aries.  I still am not sure why MVP is wrestling on crutches.

We will hear from Abyss, next.

Havoc is coming.

The Wolves have been together for 6 years, it’s now time to take care of their legacy.  They beat The Hardys, and tonight they will watch Team 3-D Vs The Hardys.  They respect Team 3-D, but they will put their Tag Titles on the line anytime.  While they were once fans, the hunters become the hunted.  Let the hunting begin.

Here comes Abyss to the ring.

Bram has something that belongs to him.  Get out here, now.

You ask, and you will receive.  Bram is here.

Abyss brings up possession is 9 tenths of the law?  Not in his book.  He wants Janice back.

Bram brings up that he has beaten Abyss twice with her.  And he is enthralled by her, so no he is not getting it back.

Does Bram really want to get extreme?  Abyss asks him if he really wants to get extreme?  Does New York City truly want to get extreme?

One more time, it will be tables, ladders, chairs, barbed wire, and while we are at it, let’s take Janice, and hang her 15 feet up in the air.

Abyss will climb up that ladder, he will get his girl, and chomp his ass to bits.

Bram accepts.

Magnus now brings up Janice has screwed Abyss twice, and more than likely the only time Abyss has been screwed by a girl.

Abyss tries to fight, but 2-on-1 attack does him in.

At Stairway to Janice, he will show Bram what kind of bitch his girl Janice can be.

Team 3-D Vs The Hardys, next.

“The Revolution Is Upon Us”

“Legend” James Storm is with Sanada, calling him weak and confused.  Storm is his light, Storm is his strength.  He will make him The Great Sanada.

Next week, Hardcore Justice, on Wednesday night.  Abyss Vs Bram in a Stairway to Janice Match.  Samoa Joe Vs Lo-Ki for the X-Division Title.  And for the first time in 4 years, Six Sides of Steel, involving a Number One Contender for the World Heavyweight Title.

The Hardys Vs Team 3-D, now.

Team 3-D wins the match with a 3-D.

A fun match and the great thing is these four men still have chemistry together.  Highlight of the show.

All four men shake hands after the match.  

The show ends here, with next week, Impact moves to Wednesdays.  Hardcore Justice.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Last week’s show was gigantic, so this week’s show was bound to be a let down.  While it wasn’t as good as last week, it still was a solid show, highlighted by the monumental main event of the show.

I loved how The Hardys and Team 3-D have not been in the same ring, as a group in 12 years, and tonight, we get this.  I just think this needs to be showcased more.  Such as advertising this for a full week, set this match last week, and not being set up in the beginning of the show.  But we will see more, from The Wolves.  Remember, they are the Tag Champs, and now all 3 teams will be featured.  We are in line for some good matches in weeks to come.

But the big news here is Impact will now be moved on Wednesday nights.  With NFL season starting up, and rumors of Smackdown being moved to Thursday nights, it will prove to be wise.

But where was the advertising?  Again, this is being moved immediately.  They easily could have set this up as 3 shows left until Thursday nights are being moved.  2 weeks left, and so on.  Also Spike TV needs to do some advertisement this week, because I guarantee that we will have some people tune in on Thursday night, forgetting, or not knowing Impact has been moved.

Other than that, not much else have been going in Impact this week, and oh yeah, Hardcore Justice is the next week.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.
