Impact Wrestling 7/31/14….Destination X

Austin Aries is being shown in a taped segment. He is in the arena, inside an empty Hammerstein Ballroom. He tells Bobby Lashley that in a few short hours, he shows the world that he is ready to be the new World Heavyweight Champion.

Destination X is ready.

Lord, we kick the show off with Team Dixie.

She needs heel music, dammit.

We see Gene Snitsky and Ezekiel Jackson with Team Dixie. Their heroes, Tommy Dreamer, Devon, and Bully Ray were shown lying on the ground last week. These fans are pathetic, because they are living in the past.

Rhino orders we show the Carters some respect.

Dixie will give us EC-Dub, if we want it, but she will give us fresh, younger, the real EC-Dub. She has given us the true star, of a real company….EC3.

She is the president, and EC3 is the general. Allow him to introduce us to his army.

First, Ezekiel Jackson will be known as Reckon. Everytime we cheer for ECW, we cheer for Gene Snitsky. Now comes the mercenary, a man who wants cash, and is known for three words….Gore!! Gore!! Gore!! This is Rhino.

Devon, Bully, and Bully, they are valiant warriors, but he challenges one final battle.

The crowd wants tables, and EC3 tells us that Dixie will never go through a table.

One final battle, they tear the building down, and then build it back, brick by brick, and call it the house The Carters built.

One final battle.

Tonight, A-Double goes after World Title gold against Lashley.

Also tonight, a trio of wrestlers have an opportunity to move on for X-Division gold.

Homicide Vs Brian Cage Vs Lo-Ki will battle for a qualifying match.

But first, Tag Team Title match is on….The Hardys Vs The Wolves.

The Wolves won in a very good match with a Double Backstabber, Davey pinning Matt.

The Wolves are still the World Tag Team Champions.

All four men shake hands, very good to see and The Wolves bow down to The Hardys greatness.

Lo-Ki is back for one last run. The X-Division is what put TNA on the map.

Lo-Ki and Samoa Joe are face to face, Lo-Ki in action, next.

We are in New York City, moments ago, The Wolves defeated The Hardys in an awesome match, and retain the Tag Titles.

DJ Z Vs Manik Vs Lo-Ki in a qualifying match for the X-Division Title.

Lo-Ki wins the match with a K-Krusher, pinning Manik. He now moves on to wrestle next week in a Triple Threat for the X-Division Title.

Last week, Sanada turned on his mentor, The legendary Great Muta. “Cowboy” James Storm approves.

Storm is in the ring.

Storm tells us what happened last week was not a student turning on his mentor, but a student finally seeing the right way. Sanada’s leader wasn’t even a part of this damn country, and Storm is the new leader of the revolution. He is now Sanada’s great teacher.

Storm introduces us to the new Sanada.

Sanada Vs Brian Cage Vs Crazzy Steve in a qualifying match to the Triple Threat match next week.

Sanada wins, and advances with a Bridge Suplex, pinning Steve.

Earlier tonight, EC3 challenged Team Extreme to one final battle.

Bully Ray, Devon, and Dreamer are in the back. They already know their answer. And we will find out, next.

Bobby Roode approaches Austin Aries. Deja vu all over again. 2 years ago, Aries defeated Bobby Roode for the World Heavyweight Title.

Roode tells Aries that wasn’t a fluke. He proved on that night, he was the better man. This is about what happened the last 6 months, MVP kicked them out of the company, this is about redemption.

Aries tells Roode when he wins tonight, he would like nothing better than to give Bobby a World Title match.

It wasn’t a fluke.

Bully Ray, Dreamer, and Devon come out to the ring.

These three men, he would bleed, sweat, and die for the fans, with what Dreamer says. This is about the work ethic, which is what ECW was about. He would go to war with guys like Roode, Eric Young, Austin Aries, The Wolves. Tommy loves this business. EC3, let’s go to war right now.

Team Dixie comes out, EC3 informs them they will go to war on their own Carter time….next week.

Bully tells Ethan they don’t want to go to war next week, this is New York. Bully can start a riot now.

If they name the time, Bully will name the terms.

8-man weapons match. Bully makes a promise that next week, Ethan’s Aunt Dixie will go through a table this time, next week.

Oh, my brother….testify.

Samoa Joe and Kurt Angle are talking, shake hands. He informs Jason Hervey that they just had an intense conversation, and we just came to no limits.

It’s official, next week….an 8-man Hardcore War Weapons match with Team Bully Ray Vs Team Ethan.

Team EC3 is discussing battle plans, and Dixie orders them this their time.

Last week, The Beautiful People attacked Taryn Terrell and Gail Kim.

Next week, The Beautiful People are going to make an announcement worthy of Destination X.

Someone in a mask is coming soon.

Samoa Joe comes to the ring.

New York City, welcome to Destination X. Joe was having a talk with Kurt. He told him tonight was about reinvigorating the X-Division. You can’t reinvigorate the X-Division without Samoa Joe.

Put him in the match, and Joe will be the next X-Division Champion.

Joe Vs Tigre Uno Vs Homicide it is.

Joe pins Homicide with a Muscle Buster.

Next week, for the X-Division Title, a three-waydance…Samoa Joe Vs Lo-Ki Vs Sanada.

Video from Bram and Abyss.

Abyss has gone through everything, tables, glass, barb-wire. But when Bram put Janice into Abyss, he went too far. So he has 2 rickets for Monster’s Ball. Bram, what could make him feel this way? My Girl.

Aries Vs Lashley video.

Aries Vs Lashley, for the World Heavyweight Championship is next.

Lashley wins with a spear, retaining his title. Aries hit a Brainbuster, but Lashley kicked out, and nailed the spear.

The show ends with Lashley celebrating with the World Title.

Next week, the unthinkable happens….Dixie Carter goes through a table.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another strong show, the best of the New York series so far. But next week’s show is also a must-see.

I loved the wrestling matches. Hardys and Wolves had a showcase of Tag Team Wrestling. The Wolves need a feud though, and maybe this will happen more than once between these four men?

Next week, an 8-man war, that might feature Dixie Carter going through a table. If you don’t like her, it might be time to check it out.

Joe being in the X-Division was fun. He should be the favorite to win the title.

Aries Vs Lashley was strong, and Lashley picks up another clean win. Who will Bobby lose to? It has to be someone who makes sense. Roode? Joe? Even Aries?

Overall, a fun show, and now I can’t wait to see what happens next week.

I don’t want to talk about the rumors, because at this time, it is rumors. I guess we will see what happens in the coming weeks, but tonight, for 2 hours, you escaped the notion TNA may not be around in a few months.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/28/14…The Summer of Lesnar

With news that at Summerslam, we will see Lesnar Vs Cena II, for the WWE World Title, what will Cena’s reaction be, and can Brock make another impact?

Raw is up now.

Last Monday night, Stephanie McMahon was arrested, after striking a “fan”, Brie Bella.

John Cena is coming to the ring to kick the show off.

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

He never imagined his opponent and plan C would be Brock Lesnar. He heard last week, there were cheers when Heyman spoke. It seems the Universe wants to see Lesnar beat Cena.

40 men have won the Championship, one man has defeated The Streak. Cena isn’t ignorant, he knows at Summerslam, he will get a beating of a lifetime. At Summerslam, Cena knows he will get his ass kicked.

But he will not lie down, he is going to fight and will beat Brock Lesnar at Summerslam, just like he did in 2012.

For those that cheer, and those that boo, because he doesn’t think The Authority know what they will get if Lesnar is champ.

He is a mercenary, and beats who he wants, he competes when he wants, and there might be nobody that can stop them, not even Paul Heyman.

Ladies and gentlemen…

His name is Paul Heyman. And at Summerslam, his client, Brock Lesnar will conquer John Cena and take away from him the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Cena might not know what it’s like to truly take a beating. He has come back after being beat before, but he never knew how to be victimized.

Ask The Undertaker….

Oh right, nobody has heard or seen from The Undertaker. Cena is rather defensive.

He wants to defend the title, but his client wants to conquer Cena. And that is what Lesnar will do. He won’t just beat John Cena, he won’t just pin Cena, he will victimize Cena. He loves the title, he loves being the champion, he loves defending the fans that chant let’s go Cena, and he also defends the fans that chant Cena sucks.

But Brock loves to victimize people, he loves to hunt them down. But Cena won’t be just beaten, he will be beaten, victimized, and conquered.

Cena has a passion, just like Heyman does, because deep down, he is proud of the ECW chants. Cena has that same passion for the WWE, he has the same passion for the title, he has that same passion for the fans. So bring that big son of a bitch after him, he will walk out the arena as the WWE World Champion.

Cesaro now comes to the ramp.

He tells Cena he isn’t a wrestler, he is just a billboard with sneakers. Where did he get those sneakers? K-Mart? Oh that’s right, he got them from cant, as in can’t wrestle. He challenges Cena to a match, and Cena accepts.

An incredible match here that had Cena hit an Attitude Adjustment off the top rope, to pin Cesaro.

Cena is getting ready for Lesnar.

Tonight, Stephanie McMahon will confront with Brie Bella.

Backstage, Stephanie doesn’t think she can do this. She can’t bear to see the look on her daughter’s eyes of disappointment again. HHH assures Steph this will work.

Orton wants to talk. The original plan was Orton would get the title back, but Roman Reigns got involved.

HHH won’t change the plan, because as long as Roman is in the picture, there won’t be any more title shots. So take out Reigns.

Orton tells him he will be taken out, HHH informs Orton that tonight Reigns will face Kane.

Orton has a problem with Reigns, he has a problem with Kane, and now….he has a problem with HHH.

Paige is in the ring, they go over what happened last week, when Paige turned on AJ.

Paige is saying she is young, and can make mistakes from time to time. At the time though, she was looking at AJ as someone who took her title, but she promises she will never act like that again.

Here comes AJ Lee, skipping along.

AJ isn’t buying this, but Paige swears she didn’t…

AJ isn’t finished talking.

She understands why she is mad, because she knows what it’s like to have the Divas Title to be taken from her. So if Paige wants to be like her, then skip like her. She doesn’t smile, and then stab her in the back.

If she has an issue with her, she will say it to her face.

Paige assures her that she is telling the truth, and if she doesn’t believe her, she is crazy.

What did you just call her?

She was just joking, she would never make fun of her mental state.

AJ understands, even those that are off their rockers.

AJ attacks Paige.

The Authority, HHH and Stephanie McMahon come out.

HHH is very disappointed in us last week, he was angry, and mad. We laughed at his wife, when she was arrested last week. We found that funny, that the mother of his children were handcuffed in this arena, like a common criminal.

HHH will never forgive us for that. Do we know what that did to his wife? yet we think it’s funny. And all of that over a simple misunderstanding. We know Brie Bella agonized his wife. Stephanie did what she had to do, and all of this was a misunderstanding. The charges were dropped, except the assault and battery charge. Brie Bella has not let that go, so they are here to reconcile.

Stephanie asked for Brie to come here tonight, and they can put all of this behind them.

Stephanie asks nicely for Brie to come out.

Enter Chris Jericho.

Chris apologizes for interrupting. He feels very bad for what happened to Stephanie. He thought he’d give her a song.

Bad Boys….Bad Boys….whatcha going to do, when they come for you….

HHH asks if this is pretty funny? Yes it is, but remember, this is 2014 Steph, orange is the new black. And this was the very reason The WWE Network so we can watch her get arrested over, and over, and over.

But Chris gives HHH some props, he has been standing by his wife’s side so much, but he does have a question, why when she was arrested, didn’t he go to the car with her?

He waited 15 minutes after the show was done, to stand by her side. He is starting to figure out something he has known for 10 years, that Stephanie is a filthy, dirty, bottom-feeding trash bag….

Stop it, HHH tells Chris he should focus on Bray Wyatt, and not on them.

This is the reason he is out here, he wants Bray in the ring.

HHH tells him that will happen at Summerslam, but tonight, he gets to face….

Seth Rollins attacks Jericho with the briefcase, and he faces Seth Rollins.

Earlier tonight, we hear John Cena’s passionate promo about his match with Brock Lesnar at Summerslam.

Cena defeated Cesaro.

Tonight, Reigns Vs Kane.

We have The Miz and Rybaxel facing Dolph Ziggler and The Uso’s.

Ziggler and The Uso’s win, when Ziggler pins Ryback. We also saw Xavier Woods, Big E, and Kofi Kingston, all in a group watch on.

This was a good match.

Brie Bella is here tonight, and will confront Stephanie McMahon.

R-Truth is out, and Bo Dallas tells him he has been losing a lot of matches, but in order to win, he must BOlieve.

And Truth wins with a rollup.

So Bo shakes his hand, and attacks Truth.

Wow, the first person that beats Bo is R-Truth?

Bo still does his victory march.

Rusev and Lana are in the ring.

Talking about our American flag.

It’s a statement that used to represent a statement of all the nations. It even landed on the moon itself. So where is our so-called old glory now? We are one nation that is ruled by cowards, while Russia continues to show its might, and is commanded by its fearless leader, Vladimir Putin. And what does our “puppet” President Obama do? He wags his finger like a school children, and preach about our peace movements. Pathetic.

We see a picture of George W. Bush though, and here comes Swagger and Zeb.

This right here is a real flag. This is a flag of 50 stars, and make no mistake about it, anywhere in the world, it represents The United States of America.

It represents a family at Thanksgiving, giving thanks that they survived another year. We the People.

It represents people surrounding the TV watching football. We the People.

It represents a son and a father playing ball, and a mother and daughter cooking. It represents good food, and beer.

We the People.

People like Lana make it very easy to stand up, and put their hands over their hearts and yell….

We the People.

The two start to fight, and Swagger has the final say.

USA!!

Tonight, Roman Reigns Vs Kane.

Astro Sandow is in the ring, and Adam Rose interrupts.

Astro wants a match, so we get that.

Party Foul, match is done, in almost record time.

Ambrose Vs Del Rio tomorrow night on Main Event.

But it’s time for Reigns Vs Kane, now.

The match never happens, because Orton attacks Reigns in the crowd. Kane left Reigns for Orton, with a Chokeslam, and Orton took over, ending the beat down with 2 RKOs, through announce table.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw.

It is now Diego Vs Fandango, with Layla and Summer Rae coming out with Torito.

Diego wins with a rollup, after Layla and Summer distracted Fandango.

Stephanie McMahon is being shown backstage, knocking at the divas locker room. Nikki Bella shows up, Brie will be here.

Stephanie hopes Brie can be reasonable, and Nikki tells her there aren’t many times people like Steph eats a plate of crap, and she hopes she is ready for it.

Stardust and Golddust are still looking for the Cosmic Key.

Natalya and Naomi Vs Cameron and Alicia Fox, now.

Naomi makes Cameron tap out to a leg lock.

A sold out crowd in Booker T’s hometown, Houston, Texas.

Lesnar Vs Cena, at Summerslam. Also Wyatt Vs Jericho.

Jericho Vs Rollins, now.

The match ends in a no contest when The Wyatts come out, and give Chris Sister Abigail.

Follow The Buzzards.

Steph and Hunter are on their way to the ring, the confrontation with Brie is next.

Stephanie McMahon comes to the ring, by herself. She is here a humbled woman. She represents 4 generations of McMahon. She represents a corporation, sponsors, a board. They think of her now as a common criminal.

Their children do not understand why their Mommy was arrested. They can’t even come to camp, without being teased, they can’t have play dates.

Here comes Brie Bella.

Brie doesn’t buy this, and calls her a rich, spoiled little bitch. Stephanie wants the court order to be dropped. Steph promises to treat Nikki fairly.

Don’t insult them here.

How about she gives Nikki a raise? Yeah okay, as long as Stephanie gives in to her demands.

For one, give Brie her job back. Steph declines, and Brie will continue the charges.

Steph will hire Brie back, and Brie wants another thing, a match.

Steph agrees to that, and will give her a match for the Divas Title.

Brie wants a match against Stephanie.

But Stephanie hasn’t competed in the ring in 10 years, she is a mother, a wife. She can’t compete in the ring. Brie walks away.

Wait, she can’t do this, she refuses to lower herself to get in the ring.

Brie walks away, but wait.

If Stephanie wrestles Brie at Summerslam, she will drop all of the charges?

Okay, yes, she will get her match. But she has to remember that at Summerslam…

Stephanie slaps Brie….

She will make her Stephanie’s bitch.

Now the fighting happens, Lou Thesz Press. Officials, Jamie Noble, Dave Finlay, Joey Mercury, and HHH all come out to separate them.

Jamie Noble gets a chant as the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another strong show tonight that is setting up the PPV nicely. What I liked to see here was a major PPV being presented as a big deal. And believe it or not, I want to see Steph Vs Brie. Although I have a feeling Nikki will help Stephanie win. But Stephanie is starting to become more and more like her father, and a huge presence on TV.

I also loved to hear Cena with a passionate promo, setting up his match with Lesnar, at Summerslam.

Cena Vs Cesaro was good, as was Y2J Vs Rollins. I also love the new stable of Woods, Kingston, and Big E. need to see more of them, and Miz has done more with the IC Title than has been done in a year, at least already.

A good start to Summerslam. What were your thoughts? Share them with me, here.

Impact Wrestling 7/24/14…The Hardy Boys Reunite

Tonight, Impact is in New York City, and after last week, Jeff Hardy lost the World Title match to Bobby Lashley. Tonight, Jeff will invite his brother Matt to New York City. Will we see The Hardy’s in action?

Impact Wrestling is now.

It’s decision time for Austin Aries. Will he choose option C and face Bobby Lashley next week at Destination X? We will find out tonight.

Mike Tenay and Taz welcome us to the show. Team 3-D and Tommy Dreamer faces Rhino, EC3, and Rockstar Spud. Gail Kim also puts her Knockout Title on the line against Taryn Terrell, and kicking things off, in a Falls Count Anywhere Match, Bobby Roode Vs MVP.

Backstage, MVP refuses to go out, but Kurt Angle orders him to go out there, and Roode will meet MVP backstage.

Roode worked a game plan, and it worked. MVP taps out to a Sharpshooter.

Kenny King tries and help his fellow Franchise Player, but Eric Young helps out his Team Canada friend, and Bobby takes care of the rest.

Footage from last week with Hardy Vs Lashley.

Next, Jeff Hardy speaks.

Last Thursday, Bully Ray came close to putting Dixie Carter through a table.

Dixie is here, to support her boys. She makes a promise that Dixie will stand over Bully Ray’s body at the end of the night.

Jeff Hardy heads to the ring.

Kurt Angle asked Jeff Hardy to come back, the people wanted Jeff back. Willow heard, and now Jeff is back. We haven’t seen the last of Willow. Sometimes, he will wear paint, at times, he will wear a mask. But he will entertain us.

Lashley brought out the best, but let’s talk about the future. The person he brought with him tonight is part of the future.

He’s 3 years older than him, he is cold-blooded. He has a great mind for the business. His name is Jeffrey Nero Hardy, and he wants to bring in Matt Moore Hardy.

A big welcome back chant for Matt.

Matt loves the crazy New York fans, and he thanks Jeff for bringing him back. This isn’t just about Matt being back, this is about two brothers reuniting. This is about 2 kids from North Carolina who dreamt about being successful wrestlers. If they had just won 1 tag team title, they would have been happy, but they won many times.

Matt needed some time away from the ring, he had made mistakes, and needed to get stronger mentally, and physically. He let Jeff down, and he let the fans down. But he can apologize many times, this isn’t about that. This is about redemption, and in order to be the best, they have to beat the best. And right now, the best Tag Team are the current Tag Team Champions, The Wolves.

Come on down.

Eddie and Davey have a tremendous amount of respect for The Hardy’s, but as Matt said, in order to be the best, they must beat the best. Well, for The Wolves to be the best Tag Team, then they must beat the best Tag Team, The Hardy Boys. And at Destination X, the match is accepted.

Tonight, Bully Ray, Devon, and Tommy Dreamer faces EC3, Rhino, and Rockstar Spud. And what decision will Austin Aries makes?

Jason Hervey asks if Austin made his decision, and Aries admits he has, but we all must find out together.

Robbie E is back, and he is no longer afraid of clowns, bro. He has also been busy on being a part of “The Amazing Race”, bro.

DJ Z wants to tell us he is better than anyone at the X-Division, and he is better than anyone in New York. He will prove he to be “The King of New York”.

It will be DJZ Vs the returning Lo-Ki.

Lo-Ki wins the match with a Driver.

Tonight, Gail Kim Vs Taryn Terrell, for the Knockout Title.

But next, Magnus and Bram Vs Gunner and Mr. Anderson.

Anderson still doesn’t trust Samuel Shaw, who is backstage with Gunner. Anderson doesn’t want Shaw involved.

EC3 is the streets, born in the streets of Boca Rica. Rhino tells EC3 and Spud that the cops stop a streetfight, there aren’t any cops here.

Dixie Carter rallies the troops, with King Mo standing by her side. They must beat Team 3-D and Dreamer in their hometown. Mo said he wants a piece of Bully Ray, but Dixie makes sure he has her back.

Bram and Magnus Vs Gunner and Anderson, now.

Bram and Magnus wins, with Magnus hitting the Spine Shaker, Magnus pinning Anderson.

But now Bram and Magnus nail Gunner and Anderson, but Samuel Shaw stands in the way of Bram. It doesn’t matter, because Bram hits the crowbar on Shaw.

Here comes Abyss to even the offs.

Abyss hits a chokeslam on Bram, and Magnus holds off Bram.

Austin Aries is headed to the ring…decision time, next.

Bully truly wants to make his promise come true, and put Dixie Carter through a table. Bully, Tommy, and Dreamer are ready for tonight.

Austin Aries is ready to make his decision.

Here comes Kurt Angle.

Next week is Destination X. He wants to bring out the X-Division Champion, Austin Aries so he can give us his answer.

Austin created option C, and every wrestler that has cashed in the title has become the World Heavyweight Champion. So Austin can hand over the X-Division Title, and get a title shot against Bobby Lashley.

This is a far-gone conclusion, right Kurt? Every year, since this has been adopted.

Here comes Lashley and MVP.

Has Austin put any thought into this? Lashley is stronger than Aries, he is bigger than Aries, he is more hungry than Aries. As far as MVP goes, Bobby can be champion as long as he wants.

Now, Austin is a good wrestler, he isn’t dumb. The fans like Austin, but that World Title isn’t going to happen.

Austin stops MVP.

MVP wants Austin to keep doing what he knows how to do. Option C worked once, but lightning won’t strike twice.

So stick to what Austin knows? Austin knows how to touch things, and it becomes gold. Austin knows what its like to be World Champion, unlike MVP.

2 years ago, Austin created Option C, and he believed in the X-Division so they can get noticed, and he wanted a legacy. This is what holds TNA apart, he knows how to do things in this ring. He has come too far to stop. He has some unfinished business in TNA. Lashley is stronger than Austin. He is faster than Austin, but he’s not tougher than Aries. Toughness isn’t measured by size, its measured by heart. Which is why he is handing in the X-Division Championship, so he gets a World Title shot. And when he beats Lashley, not if, but when, he will create Option D. Option D is being a fighting champion, and defending the title against the X-Division Champion anytime, anyplace.

Lashley informs Aries this is the biggest mistake he ever made.

Next week, Lashley Vs Aries, for the World Title.

We see footage from last year, Slammiversary, and on Impact in July….2 unforgettable matches, Gail Kim Vs Taryn Terrell.

Tonight, it’s the tiebreaker….Gail Kim vs Taryn Terrell, for the Knockout Title, and it’s next.

The Beautiful People end the match when they attack both Taryn and Gail.

The BP win this match.

The Great Muta returns to New York, next.

Dixie Carter is on the phone with someone.

Jeremy Borash introduces Muta, and Robbie challenges him to a match.

Green mist, kick to the head, and the match is done. Muta is a legend though.

Here comes “Cowboy” James Storm.

So this is The Great Muta? He is what the boys calla legend in the back? This is The great Fraud. A joke, a has-been, a so-called quote legend. He may have Sanada fooled, but this is the company Storm built with his own hands. In this company, Storm is a legend.

And where he comes from, the great state of Tennessee, they don’t spit mist, they spit beer.

He beats Muta some more, and Sanada comes with a chair.

Sanada turned on his mentor, with a chair. Now Sanada spits mist in Muta’s student in the eyes, and lays a Moonsault on Muta.

Storm accepts this, and they leave together.

Our main event, New York City streetfight is next.

Dixie Carter is with King Mo, JB interviews them. King Mo is with Dixie, and he has her back. But she warns everyone help is on the way, and Mo will show it.

Our main event, 6-man Streetfight, with Team 3-D and Tommy Dreamer Vs EC3, Rhino, and Spud.

EC3, Spud, and Rhino win when 2 fans come to the ring to lay out Bully and Devon. The 2 men are Gene Snitsky and Ezequiel Jackson. EC3 hits a One Percenter, to end the show and the match.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another strong show that sets up what should be a strong show next week. Do you see a pattern here? Impact has picked things up, and I love the 6-sided ring, and the New York location.

Seeing the Hardys in the same ring was very cool, and I am looking forward to seeing their match with The Wolves next week.

I also liked Sanada turning on his mentor. He extended his contract with TNA, so he is here to stay, and should build something up for Bound for Glory.

Not much of a fan with Gunner and Samuel Shaw storyline. But who is?

I did enjoy the promo between Lashley Vs Aries, setting up next week. That should be a good World Title match. Who comes out on top? Check it out next week. Share me your thoughts on the show, and thoughts about the 2 New York shows so far.

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/21/14…Will Plan C Take Effect Tonight?

John Cena retained his WWE World Title last night, and HHH made the plea last week that if Cena wins, Plan B will take place. Well, Plan B was Seth Rollins, and Dean Ambrose made sure that didn’t take place.

Raw is in Miami tonight, and we will also hear from Flo Rida, live.

Raw in 5 minutes.

Hey, how about this….The Authority kicks off the show, again.

Actually, it’s HHH, I am sure Stephanie will be here later.

He was looking around backstage today, nobody wanted to look him in the eye. Afraid he would blow a gasket over what happened last night, the fact the WWE World Title didn’t come back to The Authority. It stayed on John Cena.

HHH is mad, but he has options on how he can deal with this. What is he going to do? He will tweet his displeasure. He might even send an Instagram, or a Vine. He will riot if he doesn’t get what he wants. Or he can just fire everyone backstage. Just fire them out of the building. Or he can just relax, knowing that sooner or later, he always wins.

Or he can wait for 4 more weeks, because as a genius once said he can guarandamntee that John Cena won’t be the WWE World Champion, at Summerslam.

But the question is who?

Here comes Randy Orton.

What about Randy’s rematch? He is owed a rematch, since Wrestlemania. He wants guarantees, because Randy guarantees he will beat Cena at Summerslam.

Randy has a point, and right now, he is the front-runner. He is going to have the entire roster to convince him. He wants someone to go the extra mile to impress him, and show HHH they want that opportunity to become WWE World Champion.

Orton blames this on Kane, if he had just done his job last night, Orton would have the two titles.

Here comes Kane.

Kane hopes he is being considered to face John Cena. Kane knows he can beat Cena, and he knows that he can be WWE World Champion, as long as Orton will not interfere, and he doesn’t become Randy’s protector.

Here comes Roman Reigns.

If they are having a conversation about the WWE World Championship, Reigns thinks he should be in it. Because nobody wants to see Cena Vs Kane, and nobody wants to see Cena Vs Orton, again. People want to see Cena Vs Reigns.

Believe that…

Reigns hits a Superman punch on Kane, with HHH and Orton leaving the ring.

HHH orders we have a 2-on-1 Handicap match with Reigns Vs Kane and Orton, now.

Reigns wins the match by spearing Kane, and Orton does not help him.

Reigns wants Orton to come back to the ring, but he won’t do that.

Tonight, Bray Wyatt will be on The Highlight Reel

Next, 4-on-1 Divas Handicap match with Cameron, Rosa Mendes, Alicia Fox, and Eva Marie Vs Nikki Bella.

Yup, Stephanie McMahon sighting. She orders them to anniliate Nikki, and show Brie a lesson.

That epic match is next.

Brie is in the audience, and here comes Stephanie. She tells Brie she is just another face in the audience. She was on one of the hottest programs on TV, with “Total Divas” and she was a commodity, but what did she do? She chose her husband over her sister. Her husband, who was injured, and couldn’t defend his WWE World Title, and has been nothing ever since.

But now she can watch her sister get beat down, and it’s because of Brie.

Brie calls Stephanie a bitch. Stephanie orders security to escort Brie out of the building. Brie shows the ticket, she is a paying customer. Okay, but she is in view of the fans.

Brie grabs the mic, and says Stephanie is just bitter because she still has a hand print over her cheek, when Brie slapped her, and called her a vindictive bitch.

Stephanie slaps Brie now, and when Brie tries to go after Stephanie, security escorts her.

Match is on now.

The heel divas win, and Stephanie gloats about it, saying sooner or later, Nikki will do the same thing Brie did and quit.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw. Brie Bella calling Stephanie a bitch.

And the word bitch is bleeped out.

Bo Dallas is going to face Lebron Sandow.

Good lord, this is funny.

Bo Dallas wins with a BOdawg.

The city of Miami can rejoice, the biggest victory they have had in one year.

Fozzy’s new album “Do You Want To Start A War” comes out tomorrow.

Highlight Reel with Bray Wyatt is next.

Something happened during the commercial break with Jericho and The Wyatt Family.

We cut to The Wyatts…Miami, we’re here.

Hello everyone, and welcome to The Highlight Reel. Unfortunately, your scheduled host, Chris Jericho can’t make it at the moment. He is a bit undisposed. But where oh where could Chris Jericho be?

I wonder.

We see footage where The Wyatt’s attack Jericho in the locker room.

Where is Chris Jericho? Where is our savior? Surprise, surprise…he’s not here for us. But you know who is? Bray Wyatt. He is here ever since the day he had started. And he knows what we are all thinking, since he lost last night that we believe Jericho is the better man. But a loss in a battle does not mean a thing to Bray. It’s just a battle in a war. Bray created war. And The Wyatts have been here for almost a year, and in that time, they have taken down giants. They have taken down conquered heroes. And The Wyatts are the martyrs. Time is irrelevant to him, he conquers time. Something has been bothering him since last night, it’s what he remembers Sister Abigail said to him, don’t go after vengeance, because he would be digging two graves. One for his enemy, and the other for himself. He won’t do that, because he is forever.

Jericho is being attended to.

Tonight, HHH will make his decision. Who faces Cena at Summerslam?

Flo Rida is here. He will perform, live, tonight.

The new Intercontiental Champion, The Miz is in action, next.

The Miz Vs Dolph Ziggler, now.

Ziggler wins the match with a Zig Zag, winning in what was a non-title match.

Ziggler affected Miz’s moneymaker though.

HHH tells Seth Rollins there is no real reason to face Cena at Summerslam. He is the Money in the Bank winner. He needs to keep his hands at the table.

Rollins needs to stop Dean Ambrose.

Cesaro interrupts HHH, and tells them he needs to be the one who faces Cena. He is no longer a Heyman guy, and wants to be HHH’s guy.

This offends Rollins, but HHH tells him if he wants to impress HHH, he must face Dean Ambrose.

Paige and AJ team up, next.

It’s Paige and AJ Vs Natalya and Emma.

Natalya taps out to the Black Widow.

Paige hugs AJ, and now turns heel and grabs her by the hair.

She screams this is her house, after throwing her into the ring post. Now flipping her over the announce table. Begging AJ to fight back.

Paige’s house AJ!!

Fandango is set for the ring. He is going to face Zack Ryder, who is accompanied to the ring by Layla and Summer Rae.

Zack Ryder wins the match, with a Rough Ryder. Fandango had his foot on the ropes, but Layla throws the foot off.

Earlier tonight, Brie Bella calls Stephanie a bitch.

Renee Young is with Flo Rida.

Heath Slater confronts Flo Rida for putting his hands on Heath at Wrestlemania 28. Flo Rida again shoved Heath.

He performs, next.

Time for some “Wild Ones” and “Good Feeling”, and “Let The Good Times Flow”.

Tonight, HHH makes his decision with who faces John Cena at Summerslam.

Some authorities are talking with Stephanie McMahon. They are about to arrest her.

Brie Bella is pressing charges, and Stephanie is being arrested for battery, in the state of Florida.

Oh this is great.

Brie shows up, and Stephanie tells her she will pay as she is being escorted out.

Now HHH is checking in this backstage.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw. Stephanie McMahon just got arrested. HHH is making plans to meet her. Joey Mercury sighting, he informs HHH that he has yet to make his decision. HHH tells him family comes first. But wait a second, she has to be processed, it takes time. He can make his decision, so have the car on standby.

Now that is funny.

Rybaxel in the ring. They are going to face Kofi Kingston and Big E.

Rybaxel wins when Ryback reverses a cross body block, pinning Kofi Kingston.

Xavier Woods is now in the ring.

They can’t move ahead by shaking hands, kissing babies like a puppet. You can’t always do what you’re being told. This is their time, it’s up to them to find order, and to find purpose. because they do not ask any longer. Now, they take.

HHH is on the phone, when we go to a break.

Earlier tonight, and there have been many different things tonight, The Wyatt Family attacks Jericho.

Rusev is headed to the ring.

Lana tells us to shut up.

Here comes The Great Khali.

Accolade, match is over.

Sheamus will take on Rusev tomorrow night on The Main Event.

Sheamus will also have a part in the show “Royal Pains” tomorrow night on USA, at 9:00.

Stardust and Goldust.

They need the cosmic key.

Our main event, Dean Ambrose Vs Cesaro is now.

Earlier tonight, Stephanie McMahon was arrested, after slapping Brie Bella, a paid “fan” in the crowd tonight.

Renee Young tells us that Stephanie is being arriagned for later tonight, and is arrested due to alleged resisted arrest.

Cesaro Vs Ambrose, now.

Ambrose is DQ’d smahing a chair in Cesaro’s shoulder.

Renee Young is with HHH. He says he is about to make his announcement. Renee questions shouldn’t he be with his wife right now? No answer.

This Friday night on Smackdown, Roman Reigns Vs Alberto Del Rio.

HHH is in the ring.

He wants to introduce us to the challenger to John Cena’s WWE World Title….

Randy Orton.

Reigns runs down Orton, and sends him over the barricade.

Enter Paul Heyman.

Heyman has so much respect for him, Plan A isn’t working, with Orton being chased around by Roman. And Plan B, Ambrose chases Rollins. But this is why he needs to make the most difficult choice of implementing Plan C.

Here comes the pain.

HHH smiles, and shakes Heyman’s hand. He shakes Brock’s hand.

It’s official….John Cena Vs Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Title.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman. He is the advocate of the man who broke The Streak at Wrestlemania, Brock Lesnar. Which is why he is going to conquer John Cena’s WWE World Title, and become the new champion.

Now there are those people that wear green shirts, sneakers. They are the ones that scream Let’s go Cena. Then there are people that scream out Cena Sucks.

Now it doesn’t matter to his client who he roots for, the doctor of Thuganomics will be conquered.

He has a video to showcase Brock giving someone a beating.

Wrestlemania 30. Brock Lesnar did the unthinkable, and defeated The Undertaker.

21-1.

For years, people wanted to say they would beat the streak, but it never happened. Vince Mcmahon rode the ambulance with Taker, because he was concerned over his own well being. John cena won’t escape this beating. He will punch his face in, and will be hurt by Brock Lesnar. Then, and only then, will Lesnar F-5 John Cena, and strip him of the WWE World Title. The same strip that he made sure The Undertaker was stripped of the streak, and it’s a myth. He vows to strip Cena. 15 World Title reigns in 10 years is worth Brock to conquer. So Cena, get ready, because you vow those words, hustle, loyalty, and respect. This man will conquer everything he believes in.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman, the one behind the 1 at 21-1. Brock lesnar is here to make history. Brock will be the new WWE World Champion.

The show ends here with both men standing tall with pride.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a loaded episode tonight, so I give them credit for keeping me entertained. No Cena, and no Uso’s. But we saw a full-fledged heel turn by Paige, Kofi Kingston, Big E, and Xavier Woods. A new Nation of Domination.

We also saw Stephanie get a taste of her medicine, I believe we will see Stephanie Vs Brie Bella, with Brie’s job on the line.

Zack Ryder also won, so there’s that, and Flo Rida performed.

Overall, this was a fun night, and it’s confirmed. Brock lesnar Vs John Cena at Summerslam. What are your thoughts to tonight’s show? Sound off to me at DJKevingillman75@aol.com.

WWE Battleground 7/20/14

Tonight, we will see a Fatal 4-way between John Cena Vs Kane Vs Randy Orton Vs Roman Reigns for the WWE World Title. Who will win? And will we see Plan B, or Plan C from The Authority if Cena wins?

We are 10 minutes away from the Kick-off show.

We are in Tampa, Florida. Renee Young, Alex Riley, Booker T, and Christian welcome us to the Kick-off show.

Our Battleground Kick-off show will give us The Funkadactyls explode…Naomi Vs Cameron, one on one.

We have the preview to the Fatal 4-way, and hand it over to Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler.

Fandango kicks off the show.

Fandango Vs Adam Rose, with Layla and Summer Rae as Rosebuds tonight.

Layla and Summer Rae slaps Fandango, and Adam hits a Party Foul, the match is done.

Tonight, who wins between Dean Ambrose Vs Seth Rollins?

A preview for their match.

Also tonight, Chris Jericho Vs Bray Wyatt, one on one.

Preview for that match is set up now.

Tom Phillips is standing by with The Uso’s.

2 out of 3 falls match for the Tag Team Titles.

Tonight, The Uso’s will bring their A-game.

Cameron Vs Naomi, now.

Cameron wins the match with a Schoolgirl. Not as good of a match as it should be, but I think Cameron needed the win more.

We are 5 minutes away from the PPV. We are going over the matches.

We are live in Tampa, Florida. Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show.

Our first match is the 2 out of 3 falls match between The Uso’s Vs Rowan and Harper.

Rowan and Harper takes the first fall with a wicked kick to the head, Harper pinning Jimmie Uso.

The Uso’s win when Jey Uso rolls up Harper.

The fall is tied 1-1 apiece.

Amazing opener here that had many false finishes, and great sequences. But at the end, The Uso’s win with a double Samoan Splash, pinning Harper.

A great start to the PPV.

Our next match is Dean Ambrose Vs Seth Rollins. Top that last match guys, please do.

Tom Phillips is with Seth Rollins.

Seth is smiling, because this is the night he dismantle Dean Ambrose. Dean is like that little cockroach you can’t kill. But that cockroach tonight will get squashed.

But first, he will answer that question Dean asked him before he stomped him. The answer is no. Dean knows Rollins better than anyone, but he will take care of him. Then, he will keep his eye on the Fatal 4-way match later tonight, because we could be looking at the next WWE World Champion.

Ambrose attacks Rollins. HHH shows up, and demands Ambrose does not ruin his night, so he throws him out of the building.

AJ Lee Vs Paige for the Divas Title is now.

AJ wins with a Shining Wizard. I loved the storytelling here of the two women trying to top each other. We saw a Black Widow, Paige Turner, Scorpion Crab Lock, but a Shining Wizard wins it all.

WWE Summerslam is August 17th.

Every man for themself tonight in the Fatal 4-way.

Randy Orton is looking for Kane in the boiling room.

Orton is here to say he was wrong for going after Kane last Monday, and he is sorry.

Kane isn’t buying it. But is Kane sorry? For punching Orton in the face?

Being the demon’s favorite son means never saying he is sorry.

Okay, they must be on the same page, and make sure Cena or Reings doesn’t leave as WWE World Champion.

Kane assures Randy that the WWE World Champion is standing right here, and walks away.

The Battleground panel is shown now.

They give us their picks for tonight’s Fatal 4-way match, but now, it’s going to be Rusev Vs Jack Swagger.

Lana tells us that the Americans should be ashamed. We need to have a true leader, Vladimir Putin.

Our leader is a wuss.

Rusev will crush us. Each and every single one of us. Rusev will CRUSH Jack Swagger.

Rusev wins with a Countout after Swagger had 2 Patriot Locks, and the second one being on the outside. But Rusev was able to power out, and send Swagger into the steel steps.

The Russian Flag is being shown.

I guess Lana talked about the unfortunate plane that was bombed this past week, but I didn’t see it, because of the feed going out here.

Not a big fan of that, but it doesn’t surprise me.

Now Rusev crushes Swagger, and puts a unconcious Swagger into an Accolade.

It’s time for some Stardust.

Seth Rollins heads to the ring.

Since his opponent has been so irresponsibly been ejected out of the building, he has accepted his victory via forfeit.

Seth wants to be announced as the winner, and he wants his hand raised.

Justin announces Seth won the match as a forfeit.

Ambrose shows up, and goes right after Rollins, but security grabs him again.

HHH again comes out, and orders Ambrose to be kicked out of the building.

Bray Wyatt Vs Chris Jericho is up now.

Jericho picks up the win with a Codebreaker. The match was sloppy at times, when they have their rematch at Summerslam, it should be better.

Seth Rollins is outside with security. He assures them he is fine, and doesn’t need them.

He looks all around for Ambrose, and Dean comes out from a trunk, and the two men fight.

The next match is for the vacated IC Title, 20-man Battle Royal.

The Miz wins the Intercontintal Title, after Ziggler thought he won the match, eliminating Sheamus. But The Miz had been hiding the entire time, until he found a way to eliminate Ziggler.

The crowd does not seem pleased.

The biggest event of the summer, WWE Summerslam is on August 17th.

Flo Rida brings the party to Miami, Florida tomorrow night on Raw.

Our official Battleground theme song is “Jungle” by X Ambassadors & Jamie N Commons.

Our main event, Fatal 4-way for the WWE World Title is next. John Cena Vs Kane Vs Randy Orton Vs Roman Reigns.

Cena retains the title when Reigns hits a spear on Kane, Orton interrupts with a RKO on Roman, and Cena tosses Orton up with an Attitude Adjustment, landing on top of Kane, and Cena wins.

The show ends with Cena celebrating on the top of the ramp.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a fun show tonight, with everyone working hard, and now sets the tone for Summerslam. Does The Authority have a Plan B? Or even a Plan C? Tune in tomorrow night, in Miami because The Road to Summerslam begins.

What were your thoughts on the matches? Did the main event work for you? Send me your thoughts.

Impact Wrestling 7/17/14…TNA In NYC

For the next five weeks, TNA will celebrate in New York City, at the legendary Manhattan Center, former home of ECW. Tonight, Jeff Hardy faces Bobby Lashley, for the TNA World Heavyweight Title…inside a 6-sided ring.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Kurt Angle introduces us to the 6-sided ring.

Taz shows up on the balcony of the Manhattan Center.

Taz couldn’t be happier with a man like Kurt Angle heading this ship. He understands how vital wrestling is. We know how important that is, and Taz was fortunate enough to be a part of the greatest wrestling revolution of all time, ECW. And during that time, he remembers turning that corner, and he says that locker room has that same look, they are ready to go.

In closing, think of that one sentence that defines this company, and that was the mood is about to change. And if you didn’t know who he was, his name is Taz….beat him if you can, survive if Taz lets you.

Tommy Dreamer and Bully Ray are headed to the ring.

The reaction right here is the reason why New York City is the greatest wrestling audience in the world. Tonight, TNA and NYC will grab the world by the balls, and rip them off.

Bully Ray made us a promise that we want to see Dixie Carter gr through a table.

The crowd wants tables. If you want tables, tables you are going to get.

Tommy Dreamer had a moment of reflection today going to the Westward highway. 1997, Tommy, Bully, and a bunch of hardcore freaks had their first national exposure in this house.

There are men and women in the back, ready to go balls to the walls for the fans.

Enter Rhino and EC3.

EC3 makes this clear, nobody is going to put his Auntie through a table over his dead body. He didn’t put her through a table at Slammiversary, he didn’t put her through a table in Pennsylvania, and he won’t put her through a table in New York City.

Rhino makes it clear not to boo EC#, because he is a Carter.

The fans all chant that he sold out, and Ethan said he did, because he paid him well to protect The Carters. E stands Extreme, and C stands for Cash.

Bully Ray and Tommy Dreamer represent the very definition of New York. You call this the Big Apple, he calls this the Big Crapple, because they are crap.

Dreamer tells Ethan it is prevalent that he doesn’t know where he is. New York isn’t politically correct, this isn’t PG, kid. And there is one thing Dreamer wants to see in wrestling, a little less talking, and more action.

Big tag match is up now.

EC3 and Rhino wins with a little assist from Rockstar Spud. EC3 pins Dreamer.

Earlier today, both champion and challenger entered the building.

Kurt Angle runs into the newest X-Division Champion, Austin Aries. Kurt tells Austin he is one step away from Destination X, facing an 8-man X-Division Gauntlet.

Austin is ready, and that match is next.

Storm catches up to Sanada. He is driven, he is fast, he is disciplined. Storm slaps Sanada, and he tells him that he listens to his mentor, and if he continues to do that, he will prove to be a choke artist. Be careful who you listen to.

X-Division Gauntlet Match is up now.

Aries survives, last pinning Sanada with a Brainbuster. Sanada made some key mistakes here, setting up the pinfall. But this is where the 6-sided ring came in. Some amazing moves, and angles.

Austin shakes Sanada’s hand, and now the question is will Austin choose Option C, and go after the World Title at Destination X?

Bobby Roode and Eric Young teaming together again. They are on the same page.

James Storm catches up with Sanada, punishes him for losing, but Sanada won’t fight back. Muta is a loser, so is Sanada.

Dixie Carter is in New York City, she is on the way to the ring, next.

We are in New York City, is there a table in Dixie Carter’s future?

Still to come tonight, for the World Heavyweight Title, Jeff Hardy Vs Bobby Lashley.

Jeff Hardy is back, and the time is now. The moment is Jeff Hardy becoming the World Heavyweight Champion.

MVP is in the ring, on crutches.

MVP is in the ring, on crutches, because he has a torn meniscus. But he is still in the ring, ready to compete.

Kenny King tells us that Kurt Angle is a power-hungry maniac.

MVP tells us this match will be under protest.

EY and Roode win by DQ, when MVP took a crutch and nailed Roode with it. MVP didn’t do a whole lot, but honestly, not sure why he is wrestling anyway, when he is hurt.

Next week, The Great Muta will arrive in New York City.

Our next match is a No DQ, No Countout match with Brittany Vs Madison Rayne.

Madison wins the match with a Package DDT.

World Title match, Bobby Lashley Vs Jeff Hardy is next.

Dixie Carter is here, because she own this company. When she barks, she bites, unlike Bully. Bully is all bark, Dixie is all bite.

Earlier tonight, Kurt Angle congratulates Austin Aries on his big win. Austin didn’t just create option C for himself, he did it for respect of the other men that paved their ways, to get opportunities for title shots.

Austin has a week to make that decision, to see if he is giving up the X-Division Title to get a World Title shot.

World Title match, our main event….Hardy Vs Lashley is now.

Lashley retains the title after spearing Hardy. Jeff tried a Swanton right on a steel step, but Bobby moves away, and Jeff landed on his back with a thunderous thud.

This had a big-match feel, but Lashley finds a way to win.

Kurt tries to stop Dixie Carter. She is not afraid of Bully.

The Franchise Players are celebrating Bobby’s win. Kurt interrupts the celebration. Next week, Kurt is booking MVP Vs Roode in a Falls Count Anywhere Match.

Rockstar Spud, complete in a bright orange suit, introducing us to Dixie Carter.

Rhino and EC3 escort Dixie to the ring.

Dixie is not impressed with New York.

She can see why people call New Yorkers foul-mouth, garbage ingrates. She had to wear extra sprinklers just to add a little class here.

New York has no class, and yet they cheer for people without any class. Guys like what’s his name? The guy that cries, oh yeah Tommy Dreamer. “You can change wrestling, Dixie”. You can’t change perfection, darling.

And guys, like Bully Ray who doesn’t have any idea on how to be a star.

Dixie should be labeled “The Hardcore Star”, because she continues to put him through tables.

Here comes Dreamer and Bully, with a table.

Dreamer and Bully take out Rhino, EC3, and Spud.

Rhino and EC3 get Aunt Dixie out of the ring, and here comes Devon.

Devon helps Bully Ray clean house, and now only EC3 is in the ring.

Hey Ethan….WHAT’S UP!!!

Boom!!

And now….Devon….1…2….3….

GET THE TABLE!!

Ethan gets up, and is met with a Team 3-D.

The show ends with Team 3-D celebrating, and Dixie Carter finally looks worried.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Not exactly the best show this year, but this was fun. The crowd reacted, and I think Dixie should have eaten up the heel heat a bit more.

But I like this storyline of Bully getting obsessed with putting Dixie through a table. I’d like to see where they go from here with this. And Rhino being added is a nice touch too as the bodyguard.

Lashley Vs Hardy was intense, and they have made him look like a credible, monstrous beast with the title. The nice thing is he doesn’t cheat, despite being a heel. He just dominates, and allows MVP to do the talking.

The upcoming matches too will be fun.

And there is more to come with Impact in New York. What were your thoughts on the show? Send them to me here, but I want to see more.

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/14/14…Raw Is Virginia

We are 6 days away from Battleground, and our main event is a big 6-man tag match. John Cena, Roman Reigns, and Dean Ambrose Vs Kane, Randy Orton, and Seth Rollins.

We all also see the return of “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair.

7/14/14…here we go.

We are in Richmond, Virginia, the show begins with The WWE World Champion, John Cena.

Tonight, a 6-man tag match with Cena, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns Vs Kane, Orton, and Seth Rollins.

Richmond, Virginia….The champ is here.

Cena pleads us to sign up for the WWE Network, and he says so because of the WWE World Title. In 6 short days, the champ may not be here.

The Authority put him in a Fatal 4-Way match, where he faces Kane, Randy Orton, and Roman Reigns. And this Sunday, the rules are simple, the first person who scores the pinfall or submission wins. And that means he does not have to be pinned in order to lose his championship.

Enter Roman Reigns.

Ironically, Roman is his partner tonight, and then they face off this Sunday. Cena wants to thank him for helping him out, but he also sent out a cute message. Sunday night, it’s every man for himself, but they have to make it to that night. And he’s been screwed over….

Get to the damn point, John.

Cena suggests they handle their business tonight. Then they get Kane and Orton out-of-the-way Sunday, and we see how good Roman thinks he is.

Cena is right, they get rid of Orton and Kane, and then we see how good Cena thinks he is.

They start to bicker, but Ambrose interrupts them. Instead of arguing over who has the prettiest date, they work together and do what they do best, and that is Operation Screwjob, and they kick their asses.

Orton, Kane, and Rollins are behind Dean on the Titantron, and they take him out, together.

It ends with a curb stomp on the board, as we go to a commercial.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw….Dean Ambrose being laid out by The Authority.

Ambrose is headed to the hospital.

The United States Champion, Sheamus heads to the ring. He is facing The Miz.

The Miz is entering the Battleground Battle Royal for the Intercontiental Title. Because it only means a man who is beloved internationally becomes a champion. And tonight, he makes sure that Sheamus doesn’t hit the moneymaker.

And we see a picture of The moneymaker on the Titantron during this match.

The Miz wins with a rollup, preventing The Brogue Kick from hitting his moneymaker.

The Authority are proud of what they did, but now Kane and Orton are arguing about who wins the title.

HHH interrupts them though. What is important is the WWE World Championship returns to The Authority, to bring in stability. But they can talk about that Sunday, tonight, they all must be on the same page and have trust.

They walk away, and Stephanie is turned on by his power, and while they make out.

Dolph Ziggler heads to the ring.

Ziggler Vs Fandango, now.

Ziggler wins with a Famouser. Summer Rae and Layla danced again, as they did on Smackdown and cost Fandango the match.

Now they both want to dance with Ziggler.

A Sonic placement ad with Damien Sandow and Adam Rose.

The Uso’s are about to come out, but Harper and Rowan interrupt.

This Sunday, Harper and Rowan take on The Uso’s in a Best Two out of Three Falls match, for the Tag Titles.

“The Nature Boy” Ric Flair is here tonight, and next. United States Vs Russia Detente. Rusev Vs Swagger.

Swagger and Zeb Colter come out, with Rusev and Lana in the ring.

This Sunday, Swagger Vs Rusev at Battleground. Lana will start this off.

She tells Colter that he and America are the same. They choose violence to solve all issues. They want to be the savior, yet they can’t even save themselves. America is stupid.

We get USA chants, and Lana orders we all shut up.

We are so stupid that when we broke away from the English, we fought against ourselves in Civil War. But unlike mother Russia, they are saints.

More USA chants.

She wants Colter to admit his country’s mistakes, and apologize.

So Lana wants Colter to apologize? A visitor in our country? Okay, how about he tells she and Bullwinkle something. Many years ago, he was in Vietnam, with his head in the ground, with bullets flying over his head. He took an oath to protect our country from any foreign person. So this is her answer, not no….but hell no.

His arrogance is the reason why USA is crumbling into pieces. There is one man who can help your nation’s disastrous situation and that is the leader, Vladimir Putin.

We have a leader too, called the president of the United States. And whether we like him or not, he is still our president, and we respect that man.

But he is here to ask a question to Rusev. When will he step behind this woman, and be a man. Will he face Jack Swagger this Sunday? yes or no

This is war!!

So they have a match this Sunday? Colter wanted to know who wears the pants, or skirt in their family, now he knows. But he wants her to teach Rusev three words.

We The People!!

She slaps Colter, and Swagger spears Rusev. But Rusev has an edge, and just when he is about to kick Swagger, Jack slaps on the Patriot Lock.

I love this segment, and I can’t wait for their match at Battleground.

Earlier tonight, The Authority lays out Dean Ambrose, and it’s doubtful he is going to return later tonight.

Reigns is in the locker room. Cena confirms this was a setup, but now tonight, they must take care of The Authority.

Reigns tells Cena that tonight they took out one of them, by the end of the night, they will take out the three of them. Believe that.

6-man tag match.

Flo Rida will perform next Monday night on Raw.

Alberto Del Rio Vs RVD, now.

Del Rio wins with the Cross Arm Breaker.

This Sunday, the two men are a part of the Battleground Battle Royal.

Subscribe to The WWE Network…NOW!!

Tonight, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair will be here, and Chris Jericho wants answers from The Wyatt Family.

Nikki Bella is by herself in the ring, and here comes Stephanie McMahon telling her that her sister isn’t here anymore. Now Nikki is left to suffer through her consequences. But don’t blame Steph, blame this on her sister.

Nikki Vs Alicia Fox and Cameron.

Alicia and Cameron win the match with Alicia pinning Nikki.

Tonight, 2-on-3 Handicap match with Cena and Roman Vs Kane, Rollins, and Orton.

A bonus character on WWE2K15? Sting.

We are backstage, with Orton wanting to discuss Kane to HHH. Kane is just a pawn, with the idea that Orton is going to be the WWE World Champion.

Orton brings up if he is the plan, there is no need for a Plan B.

Stardust and Goldust are doing their thing.

Cesaro in action, next.

Cesaro Vs Big E, now.

Cesaro tried to use the chair, but Kofi stopped him and we saw a Big Ending. The match is done.

All three men are in the Battleground Battle Royal.

We see footage from 2 weeks ago, when The Wyatt Family attacked Chris Jericho, and here comes Chris.

He will face off with The Wyatts, next.

Welcome to Raw is Jericho!!

It feels good to be back in WWE, he grew up here. This is home to Chris. He has worked here for 15 years, and has seen everything here.

He has seen everything, until Bray Wyatt. He is a manipulator, a parasite, a shadow lurking in the dark, and he wants to know why he came after him.

At Battleground, for the first time ever, it will be Chris Jericho Vs Bray Wyatt. If you want to get crazy, he can get crazy. And the crowd chants let’s get crazy. Bray says he’s got the whole world in his hands, Chris has the WWE Universe in the crowd, and watching TV.

Bray interrupts.

What happens that changes a man? Children has a frail mind, and it makes them different. Why Chris? Chris said he would save us, and he remembers everything. He has gone to war with very powerful men, and one thing he knows, everything changes. So where were you Chris?

Bray asks if he’s afraid of the dark, and when the lights go out, they come back on and here are Rowan and Harper.

They try to gain up on him, but Chris slides away and is met with Bray attacking him from behind.

Sister Abigail on the ramp.

Follow The Buzzards.

Cole, JBL, and King are still confused as to why Wyatt is targeting Jericho.

Dean Ambrose will not participate in 6-man tag match tonight. Earlier tonight, we see The Authority laying out Dean.

It’s now a 2-on-3 Handicap match.

Our next match is AJ Lee Vs Eva Marie, with Paige doing commentary.

AJ wins with a Black Widow. This Sunday, Paige Vs AJ for the Divas Title.

The Authority are discussing matters, but Kane comes over. He doesn’t like Orton, and he doesn’t trust him.

Stephanie tells him that sometimes you must work with people you don’t like, and HHH tells him to just do what he has to do Sunday.

Plan B will be in effect, I am afraid.

Bo Dallas tells us he beat El Torito last week. He might be a little guy, but he has a big heart. And he hopes his opponent has as big if a heart as El Torito.

It’s The Great Khali.

Bo Dallas wins with a countout, hitting a BOdog.

15-BO

Bo tried to speak some positive thoughts, but Khali chopped him.

Immediately after Raw, The Best of WCW Nitro on The WWE Network.

Seth Rollins assures The Authority that if Orton or Kane doesn’t win, Plan B will be in effect.

But Paul Heyman gives The Authority another option…Plan C.

Ric Flair is next.

Renee Young is here to introduce us to the 16-time World Champion, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair.

WOOOOOOOOOOO!!

My darling Renee. Do you know where we are? We are live in Richmond, Virginia. And good lord, we have had some fun here. Just ask your mothers and fathers.

You know what say about Virginia Renee? Virginia is for lovers, and there is not a greater lover alive than “The Nature Boy”.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Renee strikes to serious business here, who is walking out the Fatal 4-way as the WWE World Champion?

Is it John Cena? Is it Randy Orton? Is it Kane? Or is it Roman Reigns?

There is only one man who strike a venom. There is only one man who walk through hell, fire, and brimstone. There is only one man you can believe in.

But there is only one WWE World Champion, and that man will be John Cena.

Here comes Reigns.

The two men shake hands, and that means our main event is up next. Cena and Reigns Vs The Authority in a 2-on-3 Handicap.

Cena and Reigns win by DQ, when Kane and Orton take over and this is where we get the ending. Kane punches Orton, Cena hits an AA on Kane, Reigns spears Cena, Orton hits a RKO on Kane. But wen end the show with Reigns spearing Orton and standing tall.

Battleground is this Sunday.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I loved seeing Ric Flair come back, and of course we have Battleground this Sunday, with some WWE Network plugging.

Truly disappointed we didn’t see Sting on TV though, but just a note that he is in the video game. He needs to be used as a General Manager, setting up a match at Wrestlemania.

Overall, tonight’s show was okay. It had its moments, but at other times, I lost interest in the show. That needs to change, and hopefully it starts next week, with The Road to Summerslam starting.
