WWE Beast In The East 7/4/15

We are live in Tokyo, Japan.  Brock Lesnar returns to Japan, we will also see Kevin Owens Vs Finn Balor, for the NXT Championship.

Michael Cole and Byron Scott welcome us to the historic event.

Chris Jericho Vs Neville kicks off the show.

Jericho defeated Neville in a Lion Tamer, making Neville tap.  Chris still has it in the ring, which is fun to watch.

A good match to start the show.

Earlier today, Brock Lesnar entered the building.

This Monday after Raw, a live special celebrating the life of “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes.

Our next match is a Triple Threat match for the Divas Championship.  Paige Vs Tamina Vs Nikki Bella.

Nikki Bella retains her title with a forearm smash, pinning Tamina.

Tonight, Brock Lesnar Vs Kofi Kingston.

Brock Lesnar video is playing now.

Brock Vs Kofi is now, I am not expecting this match to last long.

Brock played with Kofi, and at the end of the day, F-5…match over.

Brock comes back to play, with a Suplex, and a F-5.

The New Day come out, only to be taken out quickly by Supex City.

Kevin Owens is preparing for his match tonight against Finn Balor.

Owens Vs Balor, for the NXT Championship is up now.

“The Demon” is out.

Finn Balor is the new NXT Champion, pinning Owens with a Coup De Gras.  Match of the night here, just incredible by both men.

Hideo Itami is watching on, and we see Tatsumi Fujinami come out, and celebrate this moment with Finn.

Balor wants to shake hands with Owens, but Kevin walks away.

We are in Tokyo, Japan, at Sumo Hall.

Last night, Tatsumi Fujinami was honored in a WWE ring at a house show.

Now its King Barrett and Kane Vs Dolph Ziggler and John Cena.

Ziggler and Cena win when Cena pins Barrett with an Attitude Adjustment.

This was an old school tag match, and ended with the babyfaces prevailing and celebrates with the crowd to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a fun and unique show to make it special.  Balor Vs Owens was amazing, and really, it should have ended the show but I loved the presentation and it was good to see Jericho perform, as well as Lesnar coming back since Wrestlemania.

I hope to see more specials like this.  What were your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me, if they do this again, I might watch it live.

Impact Wrestling 7/1/15…Bell To Bell

Tonight is what Slammiversary should have been, a stacked show with titles on the line.  Kurt Angle will face EC3 for the World Title.  Taryn Terrell Vs Awesome Kong Vs Brooke for the Knockout Title.  And for the World Tag Team Titles, The Wolves Vs The Dirty Heels in a 30-minute Ironman match.

Impact Wrestling in 7 minutes.

Josh Matthews and The Pope welcome us to the show.

We begin the show with BDC Vs The Rising, losing team must disband.

4-on-3 handicap elimination match is set.

Micha is eliminated first, making it 4-on-2.

Eli Drake has been eliminated due to an injured knee.

It’s Drew Galloway Vs BDC, 4-on-1.

Low-Ki is eliminated with a rollup by Galloway.

Kenny King is eliminated too.

MVP pins Galloway with the Drive-By.

MVP and Hernandez are the survivors, and BDC continues with The Rising disbanding.

Tonight, part 1 of an exclusive interview with Jeff Jarrett, and EC3 Vs Kurt Angle for the World Title.

Low-Ki separated his shoulder, he is on his way to the hospital and MVP told his crew to trust him.

Magnus is in the ring.

James is a slimy son-of-a-bitch and he doesn’t care who knows.  He is sorry that James’ mommy and daddy didn’t hug him enough as a kid.  He is sorry that he tried to break Magnus’ family, but he didn’t get the job done.  He welcomes Mickie James to the ring.

Hardcore Country!!

First of all, she thanks for the words of encouragement, and she appreciates every single one of, but most of all, she thanks Magnus.  For believing in her, and although she should have listened to him from the start, he didn’t rub it in after what took place.

This is what true love is, not trying to fool someone just to manipulate what you want.

Enter James Storm and Khoya.

James brings up she should thank him, for not pushing a little bit harder, because she is up, and not in a wheelchair, not being able to hold on to her son.

He didn’t want her in The Revolution, he just wanted to see how easy it is to manipulate a woman to join his Revolution.

James wishes he could be half the man Magnus is, because he is just a pathetic coward.  If can find just one woman, bring her to the ring, because Mickie wants one more match, so she and Magnus can kick some ass all night long.

Next, the 30 minute Ironman Match for the Tag Titles is up.

The Wolves, in 2-1 advantage win the Tag Team Titles.  It came down to a rollup with 9 seconds left.

Tonight, Kurt Angle Vs EC3 for the World Title.

Knockout Title match is up now, Brooke Vs Awesome Kong Vs Taryn Terrell.

With some help from The Dollhouse, Taryn Terrell wins with a Cutter, pinning Kong.

I do like The Dollhouse theme music.

The lights go out, and playtime is over.

It’s Gail Kim.

Next, Jeff Jarrett’s exclusive interview.

Mike Tenay conducts an interview with Karen and Jeff Jarrett.

What does Jarrett coming back, and winning the King of the Mountain Title mean to TNA and Global Force Wrestling?

There is a future between Global Force and TNA, and it will shock some people, in more ways than one.

That was it for the interview.

Our main event, EC3 Vs Kurt Angle is now.

EC3 becomes the new World Heavyweight Champion with a roll up, after they threw everything but the kitchen sink at each other.  The ref threw out Tyrus, who was trying to throw everything at Angle.  This was a clean victory and the show ends with The Era of Carter beginning.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Such an amazing episode of wrestling, and really a great night of wrestling on both shows tonight.  Angle Vs EC3 was a great buildup, and the match delivered.  We also saw Best of 5 series end with 30 Minute Ironman match.  The best thing is it just had 3 falls, which is more realistic than say wrestlers being pinned 11 times in a 30 minute span.

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

Ring Of Honor Wrestling 7/1/15…AJ Styles Vs Adam Cole

We are in Philly, with Kevin Kelly and King Corino welcoming us to the show.  We have highlights from War of the Worlds.  ROH Vs New Japan, including Adam Cole Vs AJ Styles.

But our first match, The Addiction Vs Gredo and Kazuchika Okada.

The Addiction win the match with a Total Addiction, and after the match Okada takes care of Daniels and Kazarian.

Next, Adam Page Vs Watanabe.

Match joined in progress, Page Vs Watanabe.

Page wins the match, and Corino is beside himself since Colby was out there with Adam.

Cole Vs Styles is next.

AJ wins the match with 3 Styles Clash, defeating a returning Adam Cole from an injury at the time.

They shook hands before the match, Adam spit in AJ’s hand/  This time though, Adam shook AJ’s hand, and showed him he meant it.

Next week, we will find out the results of Best in the World, and have the World Heavyweight Champion.  The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I am under record in saying I don’t like the current format ROH runs, when the show seems like highlight shows, and they bring up PPVs 2 or 3 weeks after, but tonight’s 3 matches were incredible highlights of War of the Worlds, and it ended with an instant classic between AJ Styles and Adam Cole.

So how can you complain about that?

We will see who the world champ is the next week.  What were your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me here.

WWE Monday Night Raw 6/29/15…Brock Lesnar’s Answer?

Last week, something monumental happened that rarely occurs, Brock Lesnar was beat down to a pulp.  He must answer that, right?  No better way than to do it tonight.

Raw is now.

We begin the show with a 30 minute Seth Rollins promo, complete with The Authority.

Seth welcomes us to Monday Night Rollins, and we are live in Washington D.C.  A city obsessed with power.  But then again the fans in this building do not truly understand what power is.  You gain power by doing something nobody is capable of doing.

You do something Roman Reigns couldn’t do at Wrestlemania.  You do something John Cena isn’t capable of ever doing.  And even The Undertaker couldn’t do this.  You take that power, by conquering the conqueror.  He took care of Paul Heyman’s client, the 1 in 21-1.  He took a trip to Suplex City, and he took everything he could.

But Brock Lesnar isn’t here, he is boarding a plane trip to Japan right now.  (Isn’t everyone else?).  He hopes that Brock thinks about what happened.  Brock injured his good friend, Jamie Noble, broke 3 ribs.  And Jamie wouldn’t miss this moment for the world, so stand up and show appreciation this man deserves.

Show the entire Authority some respect.  They helped Rollins slay the beast.  He got them all something, brand new Apple watches.

Jamie Noble is impressed, baby!!

Seth has something extra for Kane.

He debuted in October of 1997, and he ripped off the cell.  Many things have changed since then.  But the point is for the last 17 years, Kane has been the glue that held WWE together.  And throughout that entire period, he hasn’t asked for anything.  So Seth is giving him his first vacation to Hawaii.

Complete with a Hulu band.

Kane is speechless, this is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for him.

Rollins tells Kane he has earned this vacation.  But how about they send him off in style.  How about Kane and Rollins Vs Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, in a No DQ match.

But there is more.

He saw J & J enter an arena in a crappy rental car a few weeks ago.  They travel in style, so we have a brand new Cadillac 2015 CTS.

We have some game show music playing now.

Let’s Make A Deal!!

When they travel, they represent Rollins.  And he represents all wakes of life.  What do you say, boys?  Beautiful.  This is for them, and this is what true power feels like.

Here comes The Big Show, he is in action against Mark Henry, next.

Show knocks out Henry, with ease while The Miz is watching on.

Feed Me More!!

Ryback clips Big Show’s knee, Miz kicks Ryback and runs.

Ryback wants Miz, now.

Feed Me More!!

Miz loses by countout, and if you want to truly push someone as a viable title contender, this is not it.

This show has been bad, so far.

Tonight, for the 855th time, Rollins and Kane Vs Ambrose and Reigns in a No DQ match.

Now it’s Paige Vs Alicia Fox, but the Bellas are with Alicia.

Paige wins with a rollup, pinning Alicia.

Tonight, Kane and Rollins Vs Ambrose and Reigns.

Enter John Cena.

Cena has been nominated for Sports Humanitarian of the Year, yet the fans are booing him.

Enter Kevin Owens.

Cena Vs Owens?

Nope, Owens has the mic.

Owens is just going to wait for Battleground.  And if anyone takes the US Title from Cena, it will be him.  Or maybe, it is this man….

Cesaro vs Cena is now.

Cena is DQ’d when Owens gave both Cesaro and Cena a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Owens makes it clear, if anyone is going to take the United States Title, it will be Owens.  And at Battleground, it will be Kevin Owens.

What a great match these two had.

Tonight, Ziggler and Lana will go public.

No DQ match is tonight, Kane and Rollins Vs Ambrose and Reigns.

We see what took place last Monday again, with The Authority laying out Brock Lesnar.

Bray Wyatt interrupts the fun.

Roman Reigns, he wants to open his eyes so he can see the truth.  Life isn’t always fair.  He always believes he should have been his father’s favorite.  But he threw him out like a piece of trash.  But now, he has done things his own way.  Look Daddy, he has his wings back.  Reigns knows all of the horrible things Wyatt is capable of doing.  He will have fun, there will be no distractions.  This is about Reigns and Wyatt.  The insects can watch the two fight all day.  Wyatt is his yin to Reigns’ yang.  And Bray is watching.  Anyone but you.

Run….

Lucha Dragons and Primetime Players Vs New Day and Bo Dallas is next.

PTP and Dragons win with Sky High by Titus, pinning Kofi.

Ziggler and Lana are out next.

Ziggler and Lana come out together.

Many of us might not believe this, but it didn’t start with love at first sight.  She was using Ziggler to get back at her boyfriend, but Ziggler made out with smoking hot babe, so it was a win/win.

But the situation has changed.

Lana told us for years Rusev was her life.  But then she didn’t know what a real man was.  He told her how to talk, how to dress, and even what to think of America.

Dolph has taught her so much, they have become good friends, actually more than good friends.

Ziggler is very passionate.

Rusev comes out.

Rusev comes out with Summer Rae.

Rusev doesn’t care about Lana, he never cared about her.  She is like as you Americans say like a goldfish.

Ziggler has had enough.

What kind of scumbag is he?  He is out here trash talking his girlfriend?  Rusev blew it, just walk away before Ziggler does something about that other leg.

The two have a staredown here, but Rusev walks away.

Summer Rae has something to say to Lana.  There is nothing she hates more than a gold digger.  Rusev was on top of his game at Wrestlemania, but the moment he was hurt, she jumped the ship.  Rusev cared about her, and they both know that he was very kind.  So Lana is nothing but a two-faced phony.

Summer Rae slaps Lana and now we have a catfight.

Rusev pulls Summer away.

Ambrose tell us it’s not a physical thing, it’s a mental thing.  You get knocked down, and you choose to get back up.

He is talking to a Terminator clone, when Reigns shows up.

Ambrose asks if Reigns is a bit angry at what Wyatt did.  Ambrose wants an angry Reigns, the same Reigns that got kicked out of Smackdown.

Reigns is angry at Wyatt, he doesn’t like anyone, except Ambrose.

Let’s rage.

Preview to the upcoming “Terminator:  Genysys” is being shown.

Neville Vs Sheamus is now.

“Mr. Money in the Bank” wins his match with a Brogue Kick.  At Battleground, it will be Sheamus Vs Randy Orton.

That car is getting destroyed later tonight.

Jack Swagger is set to face King Barrett, now.

Barrett wins with Bull Hammer.

No Dq tag match is up next.

Rollins and Kane win when Bray Wyatt shows up to take out Reigns, and Rollins hits a Pedigree on Ambrose for the pin.

The Authority take out Reigns.  He fought hard, but the numbers game caught up with him.  They had a table set, and took reigns right through it, and Seth hits a Pedigree.

After they leave, Bray Wyatt shows up, and gives Reigns a Sister Abigail.

Not a very good night for Reigns, as the show ends.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was not a good show at all.  It’s time to see Reigns piss off, and take out someone from Wyatt’s past.  Perhaps Luke Harper?  He has to show a vicious side.

But no Brock Lesnar tonight, so they had that car for nothing.  Unless they continue to bring out the car every week, until Lesnar comes out and destroy it.  He will compete this Saturday morning on WWE Network, as of right now his opponent is Kofi Kingston.  But that could change.

What were your thoughts of the show?  Boy, tonight sucked.  Washington D.C. did not deserve this bad of a show.

TNA Slammiversary 6/28/15

Tonight, 13 years in the making, TNA presents Slammiversary.  Tonight, King of the Mountain Match to determine a new King of the Mountain Champion.  We also will see James Storm Vs Magnus, and so much more.

Slammiversary is now.

We see all 5 participants of tonight’s King of the Mountain match, including Jeff Jarrett.

We are live in Orlando, Florida.  Josh Matthews, Mike Tenay, and The Pope welcome us to the show.

X-Division Championship starts the night with an Elimination match.  DJZ Vs Manik Vs Tigre Uno.

DJZ is eliminated when Tigre Uno hits a Springboard, it’s now Tigre Vs Manik.

Tigre picks up the win, pinning Manik with a Corkscrew Moonsault.  A very competitive that had many moves here.

JB is standing by in the back, celebrating 13 years with TNA.

JB is here with Robbie E.

People have known Robbie for 5 years, they have known him to be crazy, even doing a chicken dance.  But tonight, that Robbie E. is gone, because his partner tried to take a chair, and take him out of something he loves to do, wrestling.

Jessie, you are what everyone has known you to be, Robbie’s bitch.

Robbie E Vs Jessie Godderz is now.

Robbie E. picks up the win with a Bridge Suplex.

JB is in the back, with Matt Hardy.

Matt will always be one of the greatest tag team members of all-time, but tonight, this is about winning a King of the Ring Championship, something that means alot to him.  So while it was good to see Jeff Jarrett Wednesday night, he’s going to have a new title, King of the Mountain.

Bram Vs Matt Morgan is now.

Morgan is on the mic, saying it is good to be back home.  He wants this match to be a streetfight, right now.

Match is on.

Bram wins with a DDT on a chair.  Bram earned the victory here.

JB is with EC3 and Tyrus.

Tonight, EC3 and Tyrus Vs Lashley and Anderson.

This is the biggest week of his career, he feels like a champion, he looks like a champion but after Wednesday night, he will be the champion.  But this isn’t about him.

Tyrus tells EC3 to focus on Angle, he will take care of Anderson and Lashley.

Right now, Austin Aries Vs Davey Richards, one on one.

Aries picks up the win when Roode came out and distracted Richards long enough for Austin to grab the tights.

So now, The Dirty Heels chooses the stipulations for Wednesday’s match.

It will be a 30-minute Tag Team Ironman match.

JB is in the back with Eric Young, who will be a part of King of the Mountain match.

Eric is ready, 3 men at the top of the game, but he is better.  He has held every single title TNA has.  And that leaves Jeff Jarrett.  They have had history together, but he’s not scared.  Ask Eric if he’s scared.  But Jarrett should be.

Kong and Brooke Vs The Dollhouse is up now.

Brooke and Kong win the match, Brooke rolls up Marti for the win.

This Wednesday, Taryn will face Brooke and Kong for the Knockout Title.

JB is with Magnus.

Magnus brings up he will face Storm for the last time.  For the last 6 years, this company has brought many good things to him, and he will never forget them.  But James went after Mickie and Donovan, his family.  He doesn’t hate Storm, even though he wants to, but he has to prove that family is stronger than hate.  James Storm, you can’t catch the devil, because the devil is inside.

Storm vs Magnus in an Unsanctioned match is now.

Storm wins in a big fight here when both men nail each other with a beer bottle, but the momentum of Storm sends Magnus down, and Storm wins.

JB is in the back, with Drew Galloway.

BDC Vs The Rising one final time, this Wednesday.

Drew is a part of King of the Mountain Championship tonight.  This is his first PPV main event.  This is about a small kid who grew up as a wrestling fan, and has a chance to live his dream.  He will be King of the Mountain tonight.

They are having some audio problems right now.

EC3 and Tyrus Vs Mr. Anderson and Lashley is now.

EC3 and Tyrus wins when EC3 hits a One Percenter, pinning Lashley.

King of the Mountain match is up now.

Jeff Jarrett Vs Bobby Roode Vs Eric Young Vs Drew Galloway Vs Matt Hardy.

But first, it’s JB with Jeff and Karen Jarrett.

Jarrett back in TNA.  For 4 days, the wrestling world has been buzzing.  The GFW has been buzzing.  The TNA locker room has been buzzing, it all circulates here.  Jarrett is about to have one last match, and at this stage of his career, if he can climb up the ladder, and get that championship.  That belt will go to a whole new global level.

Here we go.

Jeff Jarrett wins King of the Mountain match, and wins the King of the Mountain title.

Jarrett did more things in the ring than I had thought he would.  This was a good match here, that picked some steam up the last few minutes.

We leave the show with Josh Matthews wondering where this will lead to in the future of TNA.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I’m not going to lie here, this felt like the very last TNA PPV.  I enjoyed seeing Storm Vs Magnus, but then again both men are leaving TNA, after their set of tapings air on the show.  It was also weird to not see Angle Vs EC3 headline the show, but we will see that this Wednesday.

And of course, where do we go from here with Jarrett and GFW?

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

Impact Wrestling 6/24/15…A Very Historic IMPACT

Tonight, on a live episode of Impact, we will see EC3 choose Kurt Angle’s opponent.  Also, Full Metal Mayhem, match 4 of Best of 5 Series with The Wolves Vs The Dirty Heels.  Also Low-Ki Vs Uno Tigre Vs Grado to crown new X-Division Champion.

So much more, and a historic announcement that could shake the foundation of TNA as we know.

Impact Wrestling in 10 minutes.

We kick the show off with EC3 heading to the ring, but JB interrupts him, wants to know who Kurt’s opponent is for tonight’s match. EC3 tells us last week, he took care of Bobby Lashley, tonight, Kurt faces someone with a “legacy”.

We kick the show off with Josh Matthews and The Pope. TNA World Champion makes his way to the ring.

Kurt tells us that in 7 days, EC3’s campaign to be World Champion will be coming to an end. He wants to know who his opponent is tonight, and here comes EC3.

Ladies and gentlemen, EC3….

Trouble….Trouble….Trouble….

Carter tells us in 1 week, Kurt’s title reign will come to an end. Nobody has beaten him, Kurt wants to know who his opponent is, and EC3 refuses to tell him, talking about the men he has beaten. Sting, Bully Ray, Jeff Hardy.

Kurt tells EC3 that his ego will defeat him at the end, because it takes a true champion to beat him. In 7 days, he will make EC3 tap.

Carter asks Kurt if he wants to make him tap out, tonight.

Well, that can wait for 7 days. Because tonight, he has to face….

Matt Hardy.

Also tonight, match 4 of Best of 5 Series between The Dirty Heels Vs The Wolves. We will also see Velvet Sky Vs Angelina Love, if Velvet wins, she will get her job back in TNA. But next, Elimination match between Low-Ki Vs Tigre Uno Vs Grado, winner becomes new X-Division Champion.

Grado is quickly eliminated with Warrior’s Way, which is a good thing.

Low-Ki Vs Tigre Uno is now.

Tigre Uno is the new X-Division Champion with a 360 splash.

A good decision here, putting the title on him.

Christy Hemme wants to ask Uno how he feels, it’s a great night for him.

JB is with Bram.

Tonight, Bram calls out any past TNA superstar. He’s take care of Joseph Park, he took out Crimson. He hates everyone, so who will it be? He doesn’t care.

A big hand shows up. It’s time.

Velvet Sky Vs Angelina Love tonight.

The Dollhouse are discussing their Slammiversary plans. It will be The Dollhouse Vs Kong and Brooke.

Slammiversary rundown. Magnus Vs James Storm in a non-sanctioned match. The Dollhouse Vs Kong and Brooke in a 3-on-2 Handicap match. Also Mr. Anderson and Lashley Vs EC3 and Tyrus.

Angelina Love Vs Velvet Sky is up now.

Velvet wins with a Stunner and In Yo Face, so she is hired back in TNA.

The Dirty Heels are up next, they have a plan in place, they think The Wolves made a mistake choosing Full Metal Mayhem.

MVP enters the building, rumors don’t seem to be true. The BDC are stronger than ever.

Full Metal Mayhem is up now, Match 4 of The Wolves Vs The Dirty Heels.

The Heels win match 4 with a low blow by Roode, pinning Eddie.

Matt Hardy is being interviewed by JB.

Hardy tells JB he was surprised too when he got the phone call from EC3, but he has an opportunity. He was sitting at home, trying to figure out what he was going to do next, and now he has an opportunity to prove he is as a good as he was, and even better.

EC3 tells Hardy he owes him one, and next week, Carter will win the World Heavyweight Championship, and when that happens, he has to kiss the brass ring if he wants any title shots.

JB and Pope explain what has been going on with Bram, but now we see Jeff Jarrett and Karen Jarrett enter a TNA Impact ring.

We get a nice welcome back chant, with Jeff telling us how strange things can turn just like that. He informs us that a week ago, right before he was boarding a plane to do a tour of Global Force Wrestling, he was contacted by TNA officials, with a proposal.

Now, he sort of laughed it off, boarded the plane, but as he was in the air, he started to think about things. So he gave them a call. They offered him to come back to TNA for one night, and in a match. But not just any match, it was a King of the Mountain match.

13 years ago, his father and Jeff founded this company. He has seen many things in this ring.

The biggest news he heard was when Jim Cornette made the announcement that Kurt Angle was jumping ship from WWE to TNA. He still has goosebumps just thinking about that.

Or the night Samoa Joe hit Kurt with the headbutt heard around the world. How about a kid from northern Georgia became the NWA TNA World Heavyweight Champion, and become a household name, like AJ Styles.

This still means something to him, and his wife grabs the mic.

She brings up the way they left this company. Sting firing Jeff in a backstage skit on TV, she always tells things the way she sees it, and now it’s about moving forward, and build Global Force Wrestling.

But then again, she sees the look on his face, she knows he must end things the right way, so she will always support him on this matter.

Jarrett makes things clear, this Sunday he will be King of the Mountain, he will end things the right way, and build on the future. As his good friend Toby Keith said a few days ago, you’re not as good as you once were, but on this one day, you might be better than you ever were.

I am ready for Slammiversary this Sunday.

IT’S VADER TIME!!!!

Bram Vs Vader is up now.

Bram loses by DQ, using a lead pipe.

When Bram takes care of Vader, here comes “The Blueprint” Matt Morgan, taking out Bram, and standing tall.

This is the night of returns here.

Eric Young Vs Chris Melendez is next.

Eric Young picks up the win with a Piledriver. Melendez tried hard, but Eric prevailed.

Next, Matt Hardy Vs Kurt Angle.

We come back and see a big fight going on with BDC and The Rising.

We see another return, Hernandez shows up and he is now on Team BDC.

MVP tells Drew Galloway that Hernandez is the newest member of the BDC.

Pope and Josh try to make use of oll of this.

Next week, match 5 of Best of 5 Series, who leaves as Tag Champion.

Also next week, Taryn Terrell Vs Awesome Kong Vs Brooke for the Knockouts Title.

And 540 days in the making, EC3 Vs Kurt Angle for the World Title. But first, Kurt has to get through Matt Hardy.

Kurt defeats Hardy with an Angle Lock. Quickly after the match, EC3 tries to attack Kurt, but Matt Hardy helps Kurt, and goes after Tyrus and EC3.

The show ends with an Angle Lock and EC3 taps out.

Is this a preview to come next week?

Kevin’s Thoughts:

One of the best shows in a while. Top to bottom, a fun show here, that featured the night of returns.

Let’s start with the obvious, Jeff Jarrett. I am now curious to see what happens this Sunday night on PPV. Will he win King of the Mountain? And what does this mean for Global Force Wrestling? Stay tuned.

Vader seems like a one-shot thing, but always good to see him. The story here is the return of Matt Morgan. Matt will face Bram this Sunday. And Hernandez seems to be here to stay as well. He was working for Lucha Underground, but he is back.

Good to see Matt Vs Kurt tonight, Full Metal Mayhem was the best match of the 4 we have seen so far, and it’s great to see Tigre Uno win the X-Division Title.

And Velvet Sky is back.

Just a very good show, what were your thoughts? Send them to me here.

ROH Wrestling 6/24/15….Bullet Club In Action

We are in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with Kevin Kelly, Nigel McGuiness, and King Corino welcoming us to the show.

We kick the show off with Roderick Strong Vs Shinsuke Nakamura, this should be a good match here.

Nakamura wins a very good match with a Buzzkick.

Still to come tonight, 6-man tag action.

Our next match is Michael Elgin Vs Gedo.

Elgin wins with a Powerbomb.  Gedo has changed his look since the last time I saw him on TV.

Bullet Club will wrestle in our main event.

Bullet Club (AJ Styles and The Young Bucks) Vs Okada and Ropping Vice.

Bullet Club wins with Styles Clash, after 2 Assisted Piledrivers, and many, many Superkicks.

Bullet Club is entertaining to watch. The show ends with Bullet Club celebrating.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Very entertaining show tonight with 3 good matches. But my biggest beef with this is while they brought up the replay for Best in the World, no results were talking about. Jay Lethal won the World Title, but they didn’t tell us anything.

That has to change if this relationship with Destination America is a success. Format must change, so that the flow with PPVs, and big shows make sense, and we get results on the show after PPV.

We expect to see the new champion soon though.

What were your thoughts on the show? Does it matter no mention of Lethal winning, or is it annoying, like I think? Send me your thoughts here.

WWE Monday Night Raw 6/22/15…The Beast Vs The Architect wan

One day before my birthday, WWE is giving me a present…Monday Night Raw!!

We are live in Indy, and here comes the pain.

The match is set in 4 weeks, WWE Battleground, Brock Lesnar Vs Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman,  And tonight, as his advocate, it is his pleasure to introduce us to the Beast, and Conqueror, BRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOCCKKKK LESNAR!!

If you are new to the WWE, and you want to know where Brock Lesnar has been, we will see a video from 3 months ago when Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank and became the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

The last time they faced off, Rollins ducked Lesnar and Brock went after a cameraman, and gave Michael Cole a F-5.  He was then suspended.

There is no mystery we are leaving this.  The question is very simple.  How did Heyman negotiate for Brock to come back.  The answer is simple, because they don’t need the money, they just need an apology.  But not in letter form, in public, right now.

And if Brock does not apologize to Cole, or to JBL, Brock will not come back to WWE and will not get a title shot at Battleground.

The fans are chanting Suplex City, while Cole is feeling uncomfortable about this.

Brock shook JBL’s hand, and he shook Cole’s hand, but gave him a noogie and rubbed Cole’s head, asking if they are good.

Heyman asks Cole if they are okay and he wants to give us an apology for what his client is about to do, and that is take care of that slimy, repulsive Seth Rollins.  The man who cashed in Money in the Bank, the “golden boy” of NXT, who was hand-picked to win the WWE World Champion.  The man who sold his soul for such a short-term title reign.  And the day that The Authority made the deal for his client to face Rollins, and that is BEAST for business.

Seth Rollins, you may think you have a first-class ticket to defend your title, but you have a first-class ticket to Suplex City, bitch.

Heyman tells us that Vince is making money off Rollins, that J & J Security beat him, that Kane wants to eat him.  But now he has the issue of being defeated by the new reigning, defending undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar!!

Tonight, Roman Reigns Vs Sheamus.  But next, Dean Ambrose Vs Kane.

Kane wins with an assist to Seth Rollins.  Not sure why.

8 days ago, John Cena defeated Kevin Owens, but Kevin attacked Cena.

John Cena returns, tonight.

We come back, and the most boring WWE storyline continues, with Kane and Rollins bickering.

8 days ago, Roman Reigns was on his way to win Money in the Bank briefcase, but Bray Wyatt interrupted that.  Reigns called out Wyatt, and Bray brought something personal, showing a picture of Reigns’ daughter.

In 4 weeks, it will be Wyatt Vs Reigns.

But our next match, Primetime Players are in action against The Ascension, now.

PTP wins when Young wins with a Gutcheck, pinning Viktor.

New Day are watching this in the back, they are not impressed.

Here comes Mr. Money in the Bank Sheamus.  We go right to Sheamus Vs Reigns, next.

Reigns loses by countout, because Bray Wyatt shows up on-screen, talking to someone with a teacup.  But that someone is Sister Abigail.

Find me…

Moments ago, we see what we just saw.  Wyatt daring Reigns to find him.

We cut to Reigns looking for Bray Wyatt.  He hears a recording, but not Wyatt.  And many pictures of Reigns with “Anyone But You” written on the wall.

Also earlier tonight, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman were here, telling Seth Rollins what Brock will do to him at Battleground.

Now Rollins is trying to apologize to J & J Security.  He needs their friendship.

Neville is in action, next.

Neville defeats Kofi with Red Arrow.  New Day tried to interfere, but Primetime Players came out to Help Neville.  The ref threw out all 4 men, and Neville prevailed.

Last Monday, we see Kevin Owens lay out Machinegun Kelly.

John Cena returns, tonight.

Tonight, Ryback Vs Mark Henry.

A sneak peek of the new show “Mr. Robot”.

The most talented jobber in the world today, King Barrett Vs Zack Ryder is now.

Barrett picks up the win, with a Bull Hammer.

Moving on….

Cole interviewed Kevin Owens and we see his reaction to when Cena took out his hand to shake hands with Owens.

Cena returns, next.

Cena comes out with the United States Title.

This title is a symbol of excellence.  A symbol of opportunity, and he is damn proud of being the champion of the United States.  But that opportunity can destroy him.

But there is a man named Kevin Owens, and he is a man on a mission.  And he can destroy Cena.  He defeated him at Elimination Chamber, but he took the mic and told Cena his time was up.  At Money in the Bank, Cena offered his hand for good will, but Owens took that opportunity, and laid him out.

Then with reason that are unknown, Owens laid out a 95 pound musician.

But make no mistake about it, Kevin Owens is a great wrestler, but he is a garbage human being.

But Owens knows how this championship means to Cena.  And he knows that he would hold his head down if he lost the title to this garbage human being.

But Owens laid out a challenge to Cena, and he has a choice to make.  So what does he do?

He can say no, it’s simple and fair.  Because he issued a challenge to Owens a few weeks ago, for the title and Owens said no.  So he can say no, and Owens would move along.

But Owens knows he can’t say no.

Because if he did, he would represent everything that Owens said he did.  A champion that is built by the corporation.  But if he says yes, then he can beat Owens and if you want some, come get some.

Enter Kevin Owens.

Owens should be pretty upset about what Cena said, right?  The truth is Owens is not.  Because he never puts any value into anyone’s opinion.  He really doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him.  If he did, he wouldn’t be the person he was.  In the past, he was called out of shape, slob, and Cena just called him a dirtbag.  So this out of shape, slob dirtbag beat Cena at Elimination Chamber.  And he took him out at Money in the Bank.

But Cena does care what anyone thinks of him.  Owens takes titles.  He wanted the NXT Title, and in his first match, he won it.  So now he wants the United States Title.

Owens agrees that the US Title is a symbol of excellence, and he wants that.  But he never heard Cena’s answer for the challenge.  He wants that challenge, so let him speak something that he will understand.  He speaks French, and Cena can speak French, he can also speak Chinese, and the American version?

At Battleground, he wants the challenge, he accepts.  And here is the final response everyone will understand, Cena will kick Owens’ ass.

The Champ Is Here.

Battleground is shaping up to be a big PPV.

Steph and HHH are watching backstage, mocking the upcoming challenge.  The WWE World Champion is gaveling again.

HHH is trying to rally Rollins, telling him to apologize to Kane and J & J Security.

Divas match, The Bellas Vs Naomi and Tamina.  For whatever reason, Alicia Fox accompanies The Bellas.

Bellas win, who cares.

Preview of Terminator:  Genisys is shown now.

Adding Roman Reigns to the mix.

Brock Lesnar is still here in Indy.

Next, it’s Ryback Vs Mark Henry.

Ryback picks up the win with a top rope splash.  Big Show sees this when he was at commentary.

At Battleground, Triple Threat match for the IC Title.  Ryback Vs Big Show Vs The Miz.

Big Show berates Mark Henry, but Henry gets right into Show’s face.

The season premiere of Tough Enough is tomorrow night.

JoJo is standing by with Ryback.

How does he feel about defending the IC Title against The Miz and Big Show?

Ryback is here to take on all challenges.  The title means the world to him, all of the sacrifice is worth it.  His parents haven’t spoken to each other in 15 years, but they watched Ryback defend the IC Title together.  And together, they all say….

Feed Me More!!

Big Show calls Ryback a little boy, and Ryback tells him he is no action.

So now the two men start to fight, but Ryback flings Show out.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw.

Oh boy, Adam Rose is on the mic telling us what we don’t get true passion, true dedication, and true love.

He tells Rosa Mendes that he loves her.

And we have Ziggler Vs Rose.

Ziggler wins with a Superkick and after the match, Ziggler and Lana kiss.

This irate Rusev watching backstage, but he throws his crutches away.  Summer Rae is here to rescue him.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the planet, Kane and the morons are complaining about Seth Rollins.  HHH and Stephanie, who have offered nothing the last few weeks in programming berate them and HHH tells Jamie Noble he doesn’t know what it’s like being the world champion, but Jamie was a former Ring of Honor Champion, boy.

The order the idiots to at least hear Rollins out.

Seth Rollins comes out to end the show.

Sometimes, it takes a man to admit when they are wrong, and he was wrong.  He asks that J & J Security and Kane to come out, and cue music, here they come.

He isn’t apologizing to them to help him beat Brock Lesnar.  He’s not scared of Brock, he beat him before at Wrestlemania.

He admit he was wrong, and he tells Kane that he owes him an apology most of all.  He will always be the “Demon’s Favorite Son” and Kane has always been Seth’s favorite superstar.  So will you accept his apology and they all can become a family again?

None of them are saying anything, and this is testing Seth’s patience here.  He has said everything he can say.  Will they please take him back?

Here Comes The Pain!!

As Brock enters the ring, The Authority leave Seth to dry.

But it’s all a ruse, because they come back to help Seth.  Brock does his best to fight all four men, but the numbers game gets the best.  The segment and show end with Rollins hitting a Pedigree, and showing The Authority are united.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The star of the show was Brock, and he truly is must-see TV.  Anytime he is on TV, you can’t change the channel, even tonight when he is being laid out, you always had the thought Brock would fight back.

But the ending also had to happen, because Rollins has to be looked at as a threat.  I just am bored with The Authority though.  Stephanie and HHH offer nothing on TV anymore.  I know that will change in a month, but right now those two are minimal.  And I don’t see Kane as a threat anymore, so what is the point of his role?

But where was Cena in helping Lesnar?  If Cena is such a good guy, shouldn’t he have helped Brock in a 4-on-1 assault?

Speaking of Cena, while their promo was good, I wanted to see Cena Vs Owens drawn out more, not having 3 matches in a matter of 8 weeks.  Could they not have Owens suspended, and then Cena not show up for another week to sell his beatdown?  But at least he sold it more than MGK.

Overall, the show was good tonight.  The ending had to happen, but Brock will get his at the end.

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

Impact Wrestling 6/17/15…EC3 and Kurt Angle Sign The Contract

This show is in memory of “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, who used to work for TNA in the weekly PPV days.

Tonight, a contract signing between Kurt Angle and EC3.

Josh Matthews and The Pope welcome us to the show.

Mike Tenay is in the ring, for the official contract signing now between Angle and EC3.

This isn’t our Slammiversary main event, this is for an Impact Wrestling show, set for July 1st.

Before we make it official, let’s get some pre-match thoughts.

EC3 has been performing for this ever since he made his debut.  Kurt Angle is the greatest wrestler in the world.  He has defeated everyone that has crossed his path.  He has beaten Heartbreak Kids, Texas Rattlesnakes.  He has beaten Cerebral Assassins, and Electrifying Man.  He has defeated Next Big Things, ayatollahs, and Superstars that are Rated R.  He has beaten Deadmen, Immortals, and guys he can’t even see.  He has beaten Submission Machines, phenomenal Ones, Kings of the Mountain, ICONs.  But Kurt Angle, what do they all have in common?  They have been beaten, EC3 hasn’t.  Kurt, you can’t beat him.  He is the end point of Kurt’s World Heavyweight Championship reign.  That is a flaming torch, and that torch gets passed to Carter.

Ethan signs the contract.

Kurt asks Tenay how many have he been to?  About 100?  That is important, because Kurt has been here before.  EC3 is spoiled, he is talented, but very spoiled.  The men he has beaten, Bully Ray, Sting, Anderson.  EC3 reminds him that he beat Kurt.

Yup, but he is healthy now and the question is what happens when Ethan loses?  This will haunt him for the rest of his life.

Kurt signs the contract and Tenay tells them that they get matches tonight, with the other man choosing the opponents.

EC3 will face “The Destroyer” Lashley.

Josh and Pope welcome us to the show.  EC3 chooses Kurt’s opponent next week on a live edition of Impact.  The Dollhouse will be in action too.

Next week, on a Live Impact Wrestling.  Low-Ki Vs Grado Vs Tigre Uno for the X-Division Title.

Best of Five series preview is being shown now between The Wolves Vs The Dirty Heels.

It’s currently 2-1 The Wolves.

This match is set now.

Davey has the mic.

When the crowd chants Wolves, that’s because from day one when they were in Japan, they sacrificed their bodies to be the best tag team in the world.  Those belts are what counts, because they are the best in the world.

When they came into this company, they put The Bromans in front of them, they beat them.  When they put The Hardys in front of them, they beat them.  They put Team 3-D in front of them in Tables, Ladders, and Chairs, they beat them.

Now when they signed up for this match with Dirty Heels, they wanted to see who the best team is, now Dirty Heels cheated their way to victory.  Fool them once, that won’t happen again.

Eddie issues the challenge for match 4 tonight.

Bobby Roode comes out, and informs us that Aries is not cleared to wrestle tonight.  They don’t call the shots, Dirty Heels call the shots.

Davey issues a challenge of Roode Vs one of the Wolves in a singles match.

Roode doesn’t want to.  But wait a minute.  How bad do they want to wrestle Roode?  How about they up the ante, and make this interesting.  The winner of the singles match chooses the stipulation in Match 4.

Eddie wants Roode.

Eddie wins with a rollup, after Roode tried to hit Edwards with a chair, from a returning Austin Aries.

Davey tells them that next week, at match 4, we will have Full Metal Mayhem.

EC3 Vs Lashley is tonight and we see a video.

JB is standing by, he was supposed to interview Bram’s mystery opponent.  I guess its Joseph Park.

He is down on luck, lost his legal practice, and his teeth.  He is in between jobs right now, and wants to be the guy on top.

Good lord, Bram Vs Park is next.

Bram spears Joseph Park through a table to win.

I do like Bram though.

It’s playtime with Taryn Terrell. She tells Kong and Brooke that they have a match with The Dollhouse tonight. If they win, they both get a title shot. If they lose, neither one gets a title shot against Taryn ever again.

Earlier tonight, Kurt Angle and EC3 signed their contract set for July 1st Impact.

Tonight, Lashley Vs EC3, EC3 chooses Kurt’s opponent next week.

The Dollhouse Vs Kong and Brooke is now.

Brooke and Kong defeat The Dollhouse with a missile Launch Elbow Drop.

Taryn Terrell will have to put the Knockout Title against both Kong and Brooke.

We take a look at Eric Young Vs Chris Melendez video.

Next, Sgt. Chris Melendez calls out Eric Young.

Next week, on a live episode of Impact, we will SE Match 4 of the Best of 5 Series, with The Dirty Heels Vs The Wolves in Full Metal Mayhem.

Christy Hemme interviews Sgt. Chris Melendez.

After a thank you Chris chant, Chris brings up at Hardcore War, Eric ripped off his prosthetic leg, he disrespected this country, and he disrespected every man and woman in uniform. But As Chris said to him, he will continue to fight, until he is dead. Come on out.

Eric tried to do Chris a favor. He volunteered to go to war for his country. Chris made the ultimate sacrifice, and he can’t take that away from Chris. He is a real American hero.

But Eric doesn’t care.

Eric doesn’t care about Chris, he doesn’t care about the fans, he only cares about himself. According to his chapter, Eric is a 5-star general, he is a GOD. In Eric’s eyes, he is up here, and Chris is down here.

Eric choked an American gold medalist, now that was at a whim. So what is going to happen when Eric really thinks about it. So Chris needs to ask if he truly wants to do this. Does he really want this match next week? Against a world-class athlete?

Chris said Eric is right about two things. Eric is above him, Chris has a lot to learn, but Chris will be ready to fight next week.

Still to come, Lashley vs EC3.

Tonight, EC3 Vs Lashley, and our next match is DJ Z Vs Jessie Godderz.

Jessie wins with a Boston Crab, making DJ Z tap out.

Jessie tells DJ Z that he is the reason why The Bromans are 2-time Tag Team Champions, both times he made the pin. But Robbie E and DJ Z did their own thing, while Jessie was training to get better. Now it’s his time, and he will never be a loser.

Just when he is about to give DJ Z a powerlift, here comes Robbie E. who returns the favor from the beatdown he had a few weeks ago, sending Jessie outside of the ring.

We see Mickie James-James Storm video. Will Magnus get his revenge? We find out, next.

Magnus comes out to the ring, demanding James Storm to come out. He makes it clear that he will hold this show hostage if he has to. Security comes out, but Magnus wants Storm.

We get Storm now.

He tells Magnus that he was the one who told Mickie that he was a bad man, and that she needed to stay away from Storm. So how did that look when Magnus came off looking jealous? And how about Magnus hiring a camera crew to follow Mickie around. That has trust problems, so what happened when the cameras were turned off.

Magnus breaks through the security, but before he could get to him, Storm brings out a baby stroller, and presumes Donovan is there, but he isn’t, because when he kicks the baby stroller, it was a doll.

EC3 Vs Lashley is next.

EC3 wins with multiple interference, Tyrus nails 2 refs, EC3 uses a chair, and takes out “The Destroyer”.

Josh Matthews was certainly obnoxious here, and we are now up to 599 straight days without a loss. EC3 celebrates to end the show.

Next week, on a live Impact Wrestling. Who will Kurt Angle face? Also match 4 of Best of 5 Series, The Dirty Heels Vs The Wolves.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I wasn’t a big fan of tonight’s show, mostly because of the piss-poor buildup to Slammiversary. They knew when the show was going to be, yet they continue to not give a shit about these PPVs, and just want to build the show. I am not even sure if I am going to order this show. Very disappointed to hear Angle Vs EC3 will not headline the show. Instead, they will be the title match 4 days after the PPV.

I am truly baffled by this, and to make matters worst, they are going to do tapings before the PPV, so why do this? I guess the PPV will feature King of the Mountain, yet you can’t think the World Title is on the line, or else you know Kurt will retain it, since they are doing the title match tapings next week.

And Josh Matthews was awful again, either turn him full-blown heel and bring in Mike Tenay to do the play-by-play. I wouldn’t have a problem with that, but we already know a heel play-by-play man doesn’t work. Just ask The Michael Cole experiment.

Next week’s Impact will be fun, with the live element, but this week’s was nothing. What were your thoughts on the show?

Ring Of Honor Wrestling 6/17/15…Official Contract Signing…Lethal Vs Briscoe

We are 2 days away from Best In The World, and we will see Jay Lethal Vs Jay Briscoe, winner take all.  Tonight, we see the official contract signing between the two men.

Kevin Kelly and King Corino welcome is to the show.

Our first match is The Decade with the team of BJ Whitmer and Adam Paige Vs War Machine, the team of Hanson and Rowe.

BJ tells Colby that his old man hasn’t seen the message yet, so he is putting Colby in the match.

War Machine destroy Colby, and Corino wants to fight Whitmer.  We go to a commercial break.

Cedrick Alexander is in the ring.  He brings up last year, he was the breakout star.  But now he has to prove to himself, and his family that he can do professional wrestling.

He challenges the undefeated Moose.

Cedrick Alexander pulled off the upset, when Vida Scott wanted Moose to use a wrench as a weapon, Moose refused and Cedrick used it instead.

Shocking since Moose is headed into a Triple Threat Number One Contender match this Friday.

Matt Sydal is in action, and we will see the contract signing with Lethal and Briscoe, tonight.

It’s Matt Sydal and ACH Vs Naito and Hiroshi Tanahashi.

Naito and Tanahashi win with a Frogsplash.

A very good match between these four men.

Our contract signing is next.

Nigel McGuiness sighting here, as he represents the authority, something I completely forgot.

Lethal, the Television Champion comes out first, and out comes Jay Briscoe.

Both titles are on the line this Friday in a 60 minute time limit.

Jay Lethal signs the contract first.  And now Jay Briscoe signs it

This as Nigel explains is the biggest match in Ring of Honor history.  Any final words?

Lethal makes this clear, he needs Briscoe at his best.  Because on Friday, June 19th, in New York City, on PPV, he wants everyone to know he is the best wrestler in the world.  And after June 19th, he will show Briscoe that he shouldn’t even be in this company, like 31 years ago, his mother knows he never should have been born.

Ouch!!

Jay Lethal, Briscoe will keep this short and simple.  Friday night, June 19th, when he whoops his ass, he will have to go back to The Black Machismo.

Oh boy!!

The two men are face to face, this Friday, who is the best in the world?  We will find out.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

That last segment was intense.  I just have this bad feeling Jay Briscoe is going to win, and Jay Lethal is the better wrestler.  He can represent ROH better, despite Briscoe being around for a long time.

The matches were fine, but the last segment made the show.  I won’t see the PPV, but I am interested in finding out who win.

Still not sure why Moose loses right before his Number One Contender match.

I really like War Machine, and the fact Corino finally stood up, after BJ Whitmer humiliated his son, again.  To see Corino in the ring again could be fun.

My biggest gripe with ROH though is there are way too many factions.  I am confused by where everyone was at, and why.  Just too many.

Speaking of factions, AJ Styles and The Young Bucks will make their Destination America TV debuts the next week.  That should be good.

A decent show tonight, but again the last segment was the best.  What were your thoughts on the show?

Send them to me here.

WWE Monday Night Raw 6/15/15…Here Comes The Pain

Reports are saying Brock Lesnar is returning to Cleveland tonight, so we will go with that.  After last night’s Money in the Bank, we are in Cleveland, Ohio.

Raw is now.

“American Dream” Dusty Rhodes video is playing to kick the show off.

The beginning intro for Raw, tonight is the night indeed.

We of course begin the show with the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins.

JBL, Michael Cole, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

We come back to the show, and Seth Rollins welcomes us to Monday Night Rollins.  Because week in, and week out he is the best thing on the show, and he is our champion.

Seth gives props to Dean Ambrose who brought his A-game last night.  The only problem with that, as good as Dean’s A-game is, it’s not quite as good as Seth’s.  He made good on his promise, he beat Dean by himself in one of the greatest World Title matches of all-time, and he brought back the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Seth wants to acknowledge all of the people who brought him here.  He is just a kid in Davenport, Iowa.  He has a list of people who have made this possible.

First and foremost, he would like to thank Seth Rollins.  And Seth Rollins, and Seth Rollins, and Seth Rollins.  He has another person, Seth Rollins.

Who else would he thank?  Dumb and Dumber, J & J Security?  Or even the world’s dumbest wrestler, Kane.  He didn’t win because of them, he didn’t even need HHH and Stephanie’s help.  He is a first ballot Hall of Famer.

Take a good look Cleveland, this is the WWE World Heavyweight Title.  Johnny Idiot won’t bring a title.  Lebron James won’t bring a title to Cleveland.  This is the only time we see a title.

Dean Ambrose has something to say.

The two men start to fight, but Rollins retreats from Ambrose.

Ambrose had the title slip out of his hands last night.  So he has a chair, and isn’t leaving until he gets ass out here.

A Monday Night Raw sit-in, commercial break.

We come back and Ambrose still has his sit-in going on.

The Authority are completely ignoring this backstage.

Rollins wants to know if The Authority are behind him, they question what Rollins said earlier that he doesn’t need The Authority, and he backpedaling it.  HHH informs him they will make the decision for who gets the next title shot.  They will decide, not Seth.

And here comes Sheamus.

Sheamus and Ambrose are a lot alike.  They both love to fight and made bold predictions before Money in the Bank.  Difference is Ambrose lost, and Sheamus is Mr. Money in the Bank.  Which means we are all one Brogue Kick away from Sheamus being the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  It can happen at anytime, even tonight.

Sheamus Vs Ambrose is now.

Ambrose wins when Orton comes out to distract Sheamus.  Sheamus misses a Brogue Kick, and Dean rolls him up.

After the match, Orton and Sheamus fight it out with Randy just missing a RKO and Sheamus running off.

Backstage, Rollins runs into Mercury and Noble.  Rollins is gracious enough to give them both their jobs back, if they have any info on who he meets next for the title.

Noble tells him they don’t know, but even if they did, they wouldn’t tell him.  But Noble believes that Mercury should be the Number One Contender.

Mercury pinned Rollins last week, (And I said then that was a very bad idea), so now no matter what Rollins does, it will always be in the record books that Rollins lost to Mercury (And that is why it’s a bad idea.)

Moving on…

Another Dusty Rhodes video, his special, celebrating his life will be on after Raw, only on WWE Network.

R-Truth, decked out in King Barrett’s outfit comes out.

He’s joining commentary when King Barrett comes to the ring.

Apparently it’s Barrett Vs Truth, but Truth didn’t even know.

Truth wins with a rollup, after Barrett turned his back.  But Barrett then nails a Bull Hammer.

This isn’t a joke Barrett said, yes it is though.  Barrett tells us he earned the spot King of the Ring, by winning the tournament, but now we will all hail King Barrett.

The wrestlers are all huddled around Machine Gun Kelly.

Paige tells the divas there will be a diva meeting, she will text them.

Next, Hustle, Loyalty, Disrespected.  Kevin Owens is here.

Kevin Owens, the NXT Champ is here.

John Cena is not here tonight.  You want someone to blame for that?  Then look no further than John Cena himself.

Owens isn’t denying he didn’t play a part, after he did powerbomb him after their match.  But the truth is Cena forced him to do that.  Because when he and Cena shook hands, he said the most disrespected thing to Owens.  He said you belong here, you belong here in front of all of these people.

Owens knows he belongs here, he has known that the second he stepped foot in a WWE ring, and he doesn’t need Cena to remind him.

People talk about Owens being a sore loser, how about Cena being a bad winner.  He couldn’t have walked to the back, like Kevin did when he beat him.  But not Cena, he had to hog the spotlight.  But, Owens has beaten Cena before, so in their rematch, Owens will defeat Cena, and this coming time, he wants the United States Title.

Owens brings up at this time, Cena would come out, hold his title up and offer a United States Title shot, so he will issue a challenge.  Who wants a shot at the NXT Title?

Dolph Ziggler.

Ziggler tells Owens he has a lot of guts, he talks about sacrifice, Ziggler has sacrificed, scratched and clawed at any moment he has in this business.  How about this city?  This city is starving for a world title.  And Ziggler is going to give them that.

Lilian does the introductions, but this isn’t a NXT Title match.  Owens said he issue a challenge, just not for the title.

Kevin Owens Vs Dolph Ziggler, now.

Pop-Up Powerbomb, Owens wins the match.  A very good match between these two men.

The NXT Champ Is Here.

Paige is holding a Diva meeting about taking a stand against The Bellas.  The divas don’t trust Paige.

Paige challenged The Bellas to a 2-on-1 Handicap match, and yes she is crazy, but together, they can stand together.  Who is with Paige?

The Bellas come out, and tell the ladies that ever since Nikki helped Stephanie in her match with Brie, she has been Divas champion.  They can side with them, or they can side with Paige.

All of them leave.

Randy Orton Vs Kane is up next.

Kane beats Orton when he changed the rules after Sheamus come out and Sheamus hits a Brogue Kick on Randy.

Last night, Bray Wyatt gave Reigns a Wyatt Intrusion.  He wants to know from Wyatt why he did what he did.

Backstage, Kane is victorious and Rollins congratulates him.  Kane lost last night, and Rollins won.  And while he won’t admit it, Kane was the biggest doubter.

Kane brings up anyone can have one win.  But if you want to be the “future”, then you have to win match after match, every night.  And if you don’t know that, you’re not an architect, you are an idiot.

Rollins said he can do it again, unlike Kane who has needed help any chance he can get from The Authority, to The Corporation to Paul Bearer, to The Undertaker.

Kane warns him to never talk about his family again.  Or else, he will regret that.  Rollins tells Kane to never touch him again, and he hopes Kane is the next opponent HHH and Stephanie choose.

A video of Dusty Rhodes’ Hall of Fame induction speech.

Ryback is at commentary.

The Big Show Vs The Miz is up now.

The Miz wins by countout when Big Show threw Miz into Ryback, and Ryback went face to face with Show.

Next, we hear from Roman Reigns.

Reigns heads to the ring.

At WWE Battleground, it will be Reigns Vs Wyatt.

Reigns didn’t get much sleep, which makes it a very long day and that means Reigns is pissed off.  He says they don’t wait until Battleground, he orders Bray to come out now.

2 stars will rise, one will speak the truth, the one tells lies.

Reigns orders Wyatt to come out now.

Roman wants answers, but he doesn’t have the mind to comprehend.  How quickly they forget.  He had an opportunity to get into Money in the Bank, but 2 weeks ago, it was Reigns who selfishly denied him.  It was that ego of his that made him do crazy things.  He reminds Bray of someone a long time ago.  He thought he was The Chosen One, and people believed in him.  They followed him, and he led them all the wrong way.

Look at this outside, this is no paradise, they are opposites.  They are Ying to Yang of each other, they balance each other out.  He once stood for justice, and now look at him.  Bray is here to stop him, and they will fight, but not tonight.  After all, what example would that be to fight before Father’s Day.

Bray has a picture of Roman with his daughter, while singing the tea-pot song.

Run…

Paige Vs The Bellas is now.

The Bellas win with a Rack Attack, Nikki pinning Paige.

What is the future of Seth Rollins?  We find out tonight.

Next, MGK will perform his newest hit “A Little More”.

Machine Gun Kelly sang his song.  Kevin Owens came out at the end, told him that was good.  MGK held out his hand.  That’s disrespectful, and Owens lays him out with a Powerbomb through a platform.

Now that was awesome.

We are all in Cleveland, tonight.

Moments ago, we see Kevin Owens giving Machine Gun Kelly a Powerbomb.

We see an exclusive clip from “Terminator Genisys”.

It’s The New Day Vs Neville and Prime Time Players in a 6-man tag match.

Neville and PTP win with Red Arrow.

A very tough 24 hours for New Day, but a very monumental 24 hours for Kevin Owens.  Last night, he lost to Cena at Money in the Bank.  But he attacked John Cena, after he believed Cena disrespected him.  He than defeated Dolph Ziggler tonight, and then attacked MGK, who was performing a song.

Kevin Owens is on fire.

Dean Ambrose is throwing darts at Seth Rollins.  As Director of Authority, Kane wants to make sure Dean Ambrose won’t interfere later tonight.

Ambrose tells Kane that he doesn’t have passion anymore.  He was a former World Champion, but back then he wore his mask, he had fire.  Dean has passion to wrestle in that ring each and every single day, and Kane just doesn’t have it anymore.

The Authority are on their way to the ring, next.

Stephanie starts this by saying that Kevin Owens will be punished for what he had done, this won’t be tolerated.  It’s also what is best for business.  And what is best for business is to choose the right man to face Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

HHH brings up we won’t see Rollins face Mercury or Noble.  He won’t face Kane, and he won’t face Dean Ambrose.

We see Seth Rollins come out to the ring.

Seth wants to tell them that he will do everything in his power to make them proud.  HHH tells him last night he proved that he was the best, and the right choice to be the face of the company.  Ever since Wrestlemania, he defeated Roman Reigns, Randy Orton, and Dean Ambrose. Quite possibly he may never needed The Authority’s help at all.

But what happens when people find mines, they crush it, and see if it turns to diamonds, or if it turns to dust.  And Rollins, he needs to be crushed and see if they truly were right.

We hear Brock Lesnar’s music, and see the return of Paul Heyman.

Brock heads to the ring, he faces Rollins, who can’t even face him eye to eye.  Rollins leaves the ring, and as far from Lesnar as he can.

So I guess Brock’s suspension and Michael Cole’s lawsuit has been lifted, right?  Heyman shakes hands with both Stephanie and HHH, and we end the show with Lesnar eyeing Rollins, and Seth is scared to even walk.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Despite the silliness of continuity, something WWE creative doesn’t do, this was a fun show, top to bottom.  The Cleveland crowd was lively throughout the night, and several people were able to stand out.

Give props to MGK for taking that platform bump.  Also Ziggler Vs Owens was very good, and the ending, while predictable was done right too.  I guess Summerslam will be HHH Vs Rollins.  It could have been done at say Survivor Series, but will Seth be WWE World Champion, or is Brock taking back the gold, something he never was pinned for?

What were your thoughts on the show?  WWE Battleground looks to be shaping up very well now.

WWE Money In The Bank 6/15/15

I’m not doing the Kick-Off show tonight, as my beloved Cleveland Cavaliers lost in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, I am just starting up with tonight’s Money in the Bank.

Here we go.

We are live in Columbus, Ohio with Michael Cole, Jerry “The King” Lawler, and JBL welcoming us to the show.

We hear a 10 bell salute for the legendary “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, who passed away this past Thursday.

Everyone is on the ramp, including Vince McMahon.

Very sad to hear, and he will be missed.

We hear Dusty’s music, that song has a special meaning to us now.

We kick the show off with Money in the Bank ladder match.

Dolph Ziggler Vs Kofi Kingston Vs Kane Vs Randy Orton Vs Neville Vs Sheamus Vs Roman Reigns.

Sheamus is Mr. Money in the Bank.  Reigns had an opportunity, but Bray Wyatt showed up from nowhere, and took out Reigns.

Not a good pick, in my opinion.  But a hard-fought match.

Renee Young is with Paige.

There hasn’t been a diva that has stood up to the Bella Empire.  While Paige hasn’t exactly been the best friend to any of these divas, they have reigned too long.  This all ends tonight.  You don’t change the world by doing nothing, you have to make that change.  For you Dusty.

Divas Title match is up now, Nikki Bella Vs Paige.

The referee is as corrupted as an NBA ref.  Brie comes in, and does the switch-a-roo, but Paige pins Brie to become a 3-time Divas champion.  Or at least she thought.  Brie showed the ref she stuffed her bra, and is Brie.  But instead of DQing the Bellas, he allows it to have Nikki sneak in with a Rack Attack, and pins Paige.

Whatever.

2 weeks ago, Ryback won the Elimination Chamber match to become the new Intercontinental Champion, but the next night Big Show issued the challenge.

The Miz shows up.

Ohio’s own The Miz comes out, gives us a O-H-I-O chant.  This is his people, but he left his people.  Because if you don’t live in New York, or LA, you’re not in.  Big Show stole the Intercontinental Title from him, and he is still contemplating pressing charges against Big Show.  But he will create a masterpiece, and he sits down at the commentating table, for….

The Big Show Vs Ryback, IC Title match is now.

Big Show wins by DQ.

3 shitting endings here on 3 matches.

John Cena Vs Kevin Owens is up now.

John Cena defeated Kevin Owens in what was for the first time ever, Cena performed a Canadian Destroyer.  He wins with a Stunner and Attitude Adjustment.

Wow.

Cena tried to shake Owens’ hand after the match, but Owens lays out Cena and nails a Powerbomb on the ring.

The real champ is here.

Cena is being helped to the back.

Renee Young is with Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose said a year ago at this event, he was screwed by Kane and now he knows he has what it takes to win the title.  Tonight, he gets that shot and told us he is “The People’s Champion”.  And for the first time, Rollins will be all alone.  No Shield, no Authority.  This is about respect, and tonight, he is getting payday.

We all lost a legend on Thursday, “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes.  He was such a great talker, and was instrumental in the success of NXT.

A video tribute of Dusty Rhodes.

Tomorrow night, Dusty Rhodes:  Celebrating The Dream will air on WWE Network after Raw.

Tag Title match of The New Day Vs Prime Time Players is now.

Xavier tells us Kofi Kingston was robbed, just like he has been every year competing in Money in the Bank.

Big E tells us that cheaters should never win, especially when they are back from probation, like Buckeyes were.

But Kofi needs some clap therapy.

New Day Sucks.

Match is on.

Prime Time Players win the Tag Titles, Titus pins Xavier.

The Money in the Bank Kick-off show is here.

Earlier tonight, Sheamus won Money in the Bank Ladder match.

Bray Wyatt cost Roman Reigns the match, and now it will be Reigns Vs Wyatt, at WWE Battleground in 5 weeks.

Our main event, Seth Rollins Vs Dean Ambrose, for WWE World Title in a Ladder match is now.

Rollins wins the match, and retains his title when both men had the title, and the platform holding the title broke, sending both men to the mat, and Rollins has the strap at the end of the day.

Eden Stiles interviews Rollins, and we see HHH congratulating him, Seth told us he proved he is the greatest WWE Champion, of all-time.

Oddly enough, HHH is okay with that saying, because he didn’t blink and we end the show here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

For everything, the show delivered with 3 good matches. I still don’t agree with Sheamus as the winner of Money in the Bank, but there has to be a reason, and it might have to do with the return of Brock Lesnar soon, right? Why not put Brock in there with Sheamus?

I also want to see Lesnar Vs Orton down the road too, it’s time to think of the possibilities, with Brock on board and his return is soon.

I also liked Rollins Vs Ambrose, but the victory seems like a “fluke” so I can see one more title match at Battleground. But these two have good chemistry together, as they have worked together for many years.

But once again, the match of the night was Cena Vs Owens. I question though whether Cena should have won. This is about Owens legacy, Cena doesn’t need a win for the rest of his career, Owens does need them.

But these two lit it up again, and I want to see part 3 at Summerslam, not 5 weeks from now. Build their feud up just to make their third encounter a “must-see”.

The rest of the matches were just not interesting, especially the divas. When will Charlotte make her long-awaited WWE debut? What about Sasha Banks? Becky Lynch? NXT divas are exciting, but in WWE? It truly is The Bella Empire, and now WWE is finally starting to admit that.

What were your thoughts on the show? Send them to me here, I will talk to you later for tonight’s Raw.

Impact Wrestling 6/10/15…Destination X

Tonight, a tournament will be held to see who becomes the next X-Division Champion, and Option C is cashed in, when Rockstar Spud faces Kurt Angle.  The winner faces Austin Aries.

Destination X is tonight.

Our first match is set, World Title match is on the line.

But here comes EC3.

Josh Matthews and The Pope welcome us to the show.

EC3 is the Number One Contender, and he’s not in either World Title match tonight?  This won’t happen, he is going to have a sit-down strike.

EC3 regrets to inform us that Destination X has been cancelled.  Deal with it.  He dares anyone to stop him.

Here comes Kurt Angle.

Ethan won’t cancel anything, these fans want to see wrestling, not a whiny bitch.

EC3 is lucky he doesn’t try to end Kurt’s career.

Kurt dares EC3 to try, and if he does, he will snap his ankle in 2.

EC3 thinks better of this, and walks away.

Rockstar Spud Vs Angle is up now.

Angle wins with an Angle Lock.  A good match between these two.

Later tonight, it will be Kurt Angle Vs Austin Aries.

The two men shake hands, and Aries shows Angle he has the briefcase, and later tonight those two will hook up.

The Dollhouse are at the top of the ramp.

Taryn Terrell said that if Awesome Kong wants to play, and fight for the title, she will have to in a Lingerie Pillow Fight.  And if she doesn’t wear it, she won’t get a shot at the Knockout Title.

The X-Division Title is now vacated, and 9 men will compete for a shot at the title.

Our first Triple Threat match is Low-Ki Vs Manik Vs Crazzy Steve.

Low-Ki wins with Warrior’s Way, pinning Manik.

Low-Ki is added to the X-Division Title at another date.

Tonight, Angle Vs Aries.

Grado is warming up backstage.  For some strange reason, I think he is going to be the new X-Division Champion.

Footage from last week when Mickie James got run over by a train.

Update on Mickie James is she isn’t physically harm.  Magnus will be here next week.

Our next match is X-Division Qualifying Match, featuring DJ Z Vs Mandrews Vs Tigre Uno.

Tigre Uno wins with the 450, pinning Mandrews, and is now advancing to the X-Division Title match.

Jesse Godderz attacks DJ Z.

Jesse is sending a message.

Jesse throws Z out of the ring.  Now comes the posedown.

Angle Vs Aries, tonight for the World Title.

Next, Taryn Terrell challenges Awesome Kong to a Lingerie Pillow Fight.

Grado is trying to lose weight, and getting pointers from Tigre Uno.

I am liking The Dollhouse’s entrance theme.

If Kong wants to play, she has to show up in that sexy lingerie.

Enter Kong.

Kong is ready for a fight, not to play.  No lingerie.

Kong takes out Marti and Jade, and while Taryn wants to be announced as the winner, Brooke wants a match with Taryn.

She will fight Taryn in any match, at anytime, at any place.

Taryn said that is so cute, but Taryn never challenged her.  Since she humiliated Kong, she needs to leave the ring, before she humiliates Brooke.

Brooke has one more thing that she needs to get off her chest.

The two start to fight.

Taryn is stripped of her robe, and has lingerie on.

Just like Brooke took her pretty little robe, the next thing she takes is her pretty title.

Bobby is telling Aries to focus on the World Heavyweight Championship.  And when he gets the title, he gets the first title shot.

Still to come, Angle Vs Aries.

Grado is getting weighed, but there is no weight limits in the X-Division.

Our next qualifying match is Grado Vs Kenny King Vs Cruz.

Oh boy, Grado wins, pinning Cruz.

I think he will be our next X-Division Champion.

The cameraman was attacked by Bram backstage.

Bram is headed to the ring, next.

Bram is here to make history and face any former TNA star to fight him.

It’s the return of Crimson.

Problem is nobody knows who he is in the stands.

Bram hits Brighter Side of Suffering for the win.

Kurt Angle has 2 matches tonight.  Spud gave everything he had, but he beat him.  Nobody is going to take this title from him.  He has Austin Aries, tonight.

EC3 wants his title shot.  But now, it’s Angle Vs Aries, our main event for the World Title.

Angle retains his title, making Aries tap out to the Angle Lock.

EC3 gets the first hit, nails Kurt from behind.

Ethan holds the title up in the air, to end the show.

Next week, Chris Melendez Vs Eric Young, plus Magnus confronts James Storm, and contract signing for EC3 and Kurt Angle.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A decent show here that gave us 2 very good, and different title matches.  You also have the idea that Slammiversary main event will be EC3 Vs Kurt Angle.  Ethan must win the title in my opinion.  This way, when he loses for the first time, it means more with the winner becoming champion.

Also X-Division Title match will be Low-Ki Vs Grado Vs Tigre Uno.  That too could be at Slammiversary, and lord I have a bad feeling Grado wins the title.

Good to see Crimson back tonight.

The Knockout segment was dumb.  I do like the entrance theme of The Dollhouse.  It’s grown on me.

Although they never announced it, I am sure match 4 of The Dirty Heels Vs The Wolves is next week too, so it should be good.

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

Ring of Honor Wrestling 6/10/15…The Kingdom Vs The Bullet Club

We kick the show off with The Addiction telling REDragon they have an opportunity at the Tag Team Titles.

Tonight, they have them right where The Addiction wants them.  We saw what they did to win the championships, what do you think they will do to keep them?

Ring of Honor Wrestling is now.

Bobby Fish has been attacked before the show.

Tag Team champions are out now.

Breaking news from the World Tag Team Champions, of The World.  Bobby Fish has been attacked before the match, and REDragon were set to get their Tag Title shots.  And they have been contracted to face Fish and O’Reiley.  If that doesn’t happen, REDragon will have to go to the back of the totem pole.

So come on out, now.

Kyle O’ Reilly is out to fight, now.

The Addiction is DQ’d when Daniels nails O’ Reilley with the tag title.

They nail Absolute Mayhem, and here comes Sydal and some other guy to help.

Dalton Castle Vs Jushin Thunder Liger is next.

Last week on ROH TV, we see The House of Truth attack The Briscoes after their match.

Mark Briscoe tells us he faces Donovan Dijeck at Best in the World.

Mark gives us a promo only he can do.  He’s going to bring him in, and he will whoop his ass in New York City.

Moving on, Dalton Castle Vs Jushin Thunder Liger is now.

Liger wins with a Brainbuster.  He is set to face off against Mike Bennett at Best in the World.

Our main event tonight is The Kingdom Vs The Bullet Club, of Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson.

Oh lord, “Brutal” Bob Evans Vs Cheeseburger.

Jushin Thunder Liger wishes Cheeseburger luck in his match tonight, and slaps him.

“Brutal” Bob Evans Vs Cheeseburger is up now.

The match is ruled a no contest when “Brutal” Bob puts Cheeseburger through a table with a sidewalk slam.

Both men are down.

The Kingdom Vs The Bullet Club is next.

The awesome Jay Lethal and Truth Martini gives us a promo.  Next week, the official contract signing will be set for their World Title Vs TV Title match at Best In The World.

Jay Briscoe now has a promo.

Jay dares Lethal to try something, cause he will whoop his ass if he tries something.  Just sign the contract.

Moments ago, we see “Brutal” Bob put Cheeseburger through a table.

It’s official, at best in the World, REDragon gets their rematch against The Addiction, in a No DQ match for the Tag Titles.

Now, our main event, the IWGP Tag Team Champions, Matt Taven and Mike Bennett, with Maria Kanellis accompanying them will face Karl Anderson and Dog Gallows.

We have a no contest when Bennett and Anderson continued to shove the ref.  All four men beat the hell out of each other, and Maria is caught in the middle.  They were about to hit her with a shot between the chairs, but Bennett stops them.  Taven is sent through the chairs instead.

6-man tag match at Best in the World.  Bullet Club Vs The Kingdom, and next week, official contract signing of Lethal Vs Briscoe, Title for Title will be held next week, to end this show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a very charged-up show tonight.  No goofy stories, just straight up wrestling.  We did have 2 No Contests though, but the last one is acceptable, because of their feud.  No AJ Styles, no Adam Cole, but you knew this was an intense feud.

Next week, the official contract signing of Lethal Vs Briscoe.  I hope Lethal wins at the PPV.

But Cheeseburger?  Really?  Dude looks like Rocky King from NWA days.  However, he is over with the crowd, he just has a stupid name.  And my god, is Kevin Kelly annoying on play-by-play.

But hey, this show had good wrestling, so I will deal with it.

Share me your thoughts on the show.

WWE Monday Night Raw 6/8/15…New Orleans Bash

Tonight, we are in Bourbon Street, home of Wrestlemania 30.  6 days away from Money in the Bank.

United States Champion John Cena kick off the show.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Sexton welcome us to the show.

6 days away, Champion Vs Champion rematch.  John Cena Vs Kevin Owens.

The Champ Is Here, but Kevin Owens isn’t here.

7 superstars this Sunday compete to get it all hang out.  Not for a championship, but for an opportunity.  And this Sunday, 2 champions compete in this ring, and let it all hang out.  Not for a championship, but for an opportunity.

Kevin Owens had an incredible debut, and he thinks Cena is full of crap.  This Sunday, Owens thinks Cena’s time is up, and Owen’s time is now.

But John is just getting started.  Cena fights for us, even the ones that chant he sucks.

Not much of a reaction here.

But whether we make a remix of his theme music, or degrade his slogans, we all know there is no safer bet than Cena winning.  There was a buzz 8 days ago when Owens won.  But this Sunday, we will be reminded Cena is the one who runs this place, and is the standard-bearer.

Here comes Kevin Owens.

Now, The Champ Is Here.

Cena truly is delusional, if he thinks Cena will beat Owens this Sunday.  And he is delusional if he thinks people want to see Cena come out at the beginning of Raw, and challenge people for the US Title.  And Cena has done this for the last 10 years, they are sick of it.

So how about we give these people a NXT Open Challenge.

That is a hell of an idea Cena said, he accepts.

Again, Cena is being delusional.  Because the two of them are going to fight this Sunday, so they can’t fight tonight.

When Cena holds this US Title, it represents an opportunity for anyone, and the way he sees it, John Cena is still the one to beat.  So his time is now.  If you want some, come get some.

Owens will ignore that, and issues a challenge of any superstar who walks down the ramp choose what title they want.

It’s Neville.

Neville would love to fight Cena again, one day.  But ever since Owens has won the NXT Title, he has disrespected the fans, and the wrestlers.  So as a proud former NXT Champion, he is here to beat Kevin Owens for the NXT Championship.

That match is next.

What a great match that ends with Owens hitting a Pop-Up Powerbomb, with Cena watching commentary.

Owens invites Cena into the ring, to which Cena slides into the ring.  But Owens leaves, ready for Sunday.

Also this Sunday, Seth Rollins Vs Dean Ambrose in a Ladder match.

We see what happened at Elimination Chamber.

The Authority are in their office, when Seth Rollins approaches them.  He meant what he said last week about J & J Security and Kane, but he has the utmost respect for Steph and HHH.

He was right though, he can win without them.  But they will be there this Sunday, right?  Yes, but they won’t help him win.  They will even let Rollins choose his opponent later tonight.

I am so sick of this storyline.

Segment from last week with The Bellas.

We see what Paige had to say last week on Smackdown, saying she will do something about changing the world they live in.

Nikki Bella tell us that they give anyone an equal opportunity, just like Nikki will face Summer Rae tonight, and Paige gets her rematch at Money in the Bank.  This is really The Bella’s World, and they allow Paige to live in it.

Nikki Vs Summer Rae, next.

Nikki wins with ease, Rack Attack.

Next.

We see Roman Reigns gauntlet he went through last week, defeating King Barrett, Mark Henry, and Bray Wyatt.

Roman Reigns is up next.

We have ladders surrounding the ring now, with the briefcase at the top.

Enter Roman Reigns.

There was a time when Reigns hated the briefcase.  He hated the contract and everything it stood for.  But then again, it doesn’t look as bad when the biggest jackass of the world doesn’t have it, like Seth Rollins.

Reigns will climb up, and he will grab the briefcase.  And there will be a time when he hashes it out with the man who is winning the WWE World Title this Sunday, Dean Ambrose.

Kane comes out, and he sees things a bit differently,

The Authority put Kane in this match to make sure the future is protected, and this Sunday he will win the Money in the Bank Ladder match.

Reigns wants Kane in the ring.

But Dolph Ziggler has something to say about it.

Ziggler says Kane doesn’t do anything without The Authority telling him to do it.  In fact, Kane is the biggest tool in WWE.  But Ziggler is on a roll.  He has a comedy show to do, he has a smoking hot Russian and this Sunday, he will do what he does best, and will steal the show.

Kane tells them that even the most simple tool can inflict damage and watch what they say, because he still has the power.

Here comes R-Truth.

New Orleans, what’s up?

Truth is cured of his ladder phobia, and is ready for Sunday’s match.

But Kane tells Truth he’s not even in the match.

Are you sure?

Quite sure.

My bad, bye New Orleans.

Poor R-Truth.

Now as Kane was saying….

Here comes New Day.

As Big E. tells us when Kofi wins, we all win.

New Day rocks!!

Enough….as Kane was saying.

Enter Sheamus.

He is just a Brogue Kick away from a chance to win the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

Okay is everyone finished?

As we all know, there are 2 more spots open.  Neville, who competed earlier, and this man…

Randy Orton.

It’s Orton Vs Sheamus, next.

Sheamus wins by DQ when Orton attacks him with a chair, flings him on the announce table, then hits a RKO in the ring.

6 days away from Money in the Bank.  Who wins the ladder match?

Joey and Jamie approach Rollins, saying they forgive him for what they said last week, and tonight.

Rollins told them they would be nothing if Seth wasn’t here getting them a job.  Jamie tells him he wouldn’t even be WWE Champion if it wasn’t for them, and they are The Shield 2.0, better than Reigns and Ambrose.

Rollins informs them The Authority told him he chooses his opponents, and he choose them in a 2-on-1 Handicap match.

Seth slaps Jamie, but Jamie slaps right back.

Joey tells them they protected him, but tonight, they will kick his ass.

Go Joey.

Ziggler Vs Kane, now.

Kane wins a pointless match with a Chokeslam, after Rusev comes out to confront Lana.  He bullied her to the fact she falls off the ramp, and trips on her heels.

Kane wins.

Dolph checks on Lana, and we switch gears to show more Instagram footage from Dean Ambrose.

J & J Security are preparing for their match.

Miz TV, with Ryback and Big Show is next.

Lana is being tended to backstage.

Miz TV is now.

Miz should be standing here as our new Intercontinental Champion, but this happened.

Big Show came out, and knocked out The Miz.

His lawyers are contemplating a lawsuit against Big Show, and maybe even Ryback because Ryback probably put Show into doing it, not wanting to face Miz.

Feed Me More!!

The only guy who was being robbed was The Big Guy, because he was robbed out of giving The Miz a meathook.

Miz was a former WWE Champion.

Ryback is tired of hearing Miz’s resume, he is a former WWE Champion.  He main evented Wrestlemania.  He is an A-Lister Hollywood actor.  But his former stunt double, Damien Mizdow outperformed him every single night.

Now they bicker a bit.

Miz told Ryback he should be upset at Big Show.  He ruined a chance Ryback had at defeating a big star, defending his IC Title.  Should that upset him?

Here comes Big Show.

Big Show makes this clear, out of all of his tag team partners, Big Show hated Miz right away.

Ryback isn’t buying any of this, he is the one guy not afraid of Big Show.  If he wants his Intercontinental Championship, it’s right here.

Ryback can’t stop Show, because he is a true giant.  Nobody can defeat Ryback for the IC Title, because Big Show wants it.

Miz tries to interfere, but Show handles him again, and Ryback gives Big Show Shellshock.

Earlier tonight, Rollins made the match of him against J & J Security.

Our next match is El Matadores Vs Harper and Rowan.

Harper and Rowan win, and Harper takes the mic.

Tick Tock…Tick Tock…Tick Tock.

The time to pay for your sins is coming.  The judgment waiting for you is at the door.

It’s okay to be scared, they all should be.

Kane is here to wish Rollins luck on his match tonight.  Rollins does not need luck against Mercury and Noble.

Kane warns Rollins that he could win his title match, and Kane cashes in his MITB briefcase.  Or Ambrose beats him, and he would be a fraud and Kane becomes WWE World Champion against Ambrose.

Rollins won’t need anyone’s help tonight, or Sunday night.  He hopes that Ambrose will be come tonight, so he could show him what he will do to him Sunday night.  He doesn’t need Kane to meddle around.

Kane informs him that he will be in J & J Security’s corner tonight.

A movie preview to “Ted 2″.

Big E. from New Day Vs Titus O’ Neil, from Prime Time Players.

Big E wins with a Big Ending, and an assist from Xavier Woods.

Here comes Roman Reigns.

Reigns Vs Kofi is next.

Reigns picks up the win, and here comes Dean Ambrose, who has a ticket for tonight’s main event.

Our main event is now.  J & J Security Vs Rollins is now.

J & J Security defeated Rollins when Ambrose distracted Seth a bit, giving him the WWE World Title before Rollins hits a Pedigree.  Mercury rolls up Rollins for the win, and Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds.  He takes the title, and shows us how to climb up a ladder for the win, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This might have been one of the worst and boring Raw of the year.  Other than the first half hour, with Owens, Cena, and Neville, which completely rocked, everything else fell apart.

The worst thing was having 2 people booked as complete fools pin the WWE World Champion, who more than likely will beat Dean Ambrose this Sunday.  So it didn’t help either man in the main event of your next PPV.

Just complete garbage tonight, do you agree?  Disagree?  Send me your thoughts here.

Impact Wrestling 6/3/15…Wednesday Night Impact

God Bless the next World Heavyweight Champion, and God Bless EC3.

Ladies and gentlemen….EC3

We have a barber quartet, which is beautiful.

EC3 has to win at Slammiversary, right?

Josh Matthews is joined by The Pope.

EC3 is finally the Number One Contender, so let the celebration begin.

The barber quartet is at it again, and balloons for everyone.

Is Tyrus excited?  EC3 can feel it, that Tyrus just wants to dance.

Tyrus is slowly dancing, but too bad because this is serious business.

He wants to prove the naysayers wrong, who claim he has this chance because of his last name, and the ones who say he can’t wrestle.

We get a chant going, and for old times sake, he disagrees.  He’s very good, and he’s number one.

As the great George W. Bush said “million accomplished” and he asks for Kurt Angle to come out and celebrate.

Kurt is impressed by this celebration.  Vern Gagne and Lou Thesz would roll over their graves, if they saw this.

EC3 is ranked number one.  But he is not next in line for the title.

EC3 disagrees.

Kurt tells us next week is Destination X and the X-Division Champion has an opportunity to put his title up to get a World Title shot.

EC3 disagrees, he left Rockstar Spud in the dust, Kurt is ducking him.  EC3 knows Spud, he will make him an offer he can’t refuse.

Tyrus, buxom blondes, let’s go.

The quartet sings a tune for Kurt and Angle lays an Angle Slam.

Josh Matthews and The Pope introduce us to the show.

Match number 3 of the Best of 5 Series.  The Wolves Vs The Dirty Heels.  The Rising Vs BDC, and right now.  Lashley Vs Eric Young.

Lashley wins the match with a spear,  Chris Melendez is ready for Eric Young.  But Lashley is holding Chris back.

Spud has a big decision to make tonight.  He holds a title he has wanted for 14 years.  But now he has a chance to get the biggest prize in the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

He doesn’t know.

Last week, inside six sides of steel, Taryn Terrell defeated Gail Kim.  Awesome Kong couldn’t do a thing as The Dollhouse took care of Gail Kim.

Taryn Terrell will give Kong a chance at the Knockout Title next week.  Marti and Jade are in action, next.

Chris Melendez is taking this personal to what Eric Young has done.  He wants a match with Young.

Austin Aries talks with Spud.  He created Option C for anyone who is X-Division Champion to cash in the title, and fight for the World Title.  Now he wishes he didn’t create it, because sometimes the grass isn’t greener on the other side.  He can instead take the X-Division Title, and defend it like a fighting champion.  Aries has the briefcase, he can get the title shot anytime, but he just wants to give Spud a choice.

Jade Vs Brooke, now.

Brooke picks up the win when Jade runs into Marti.

No pillow talk for The Dollhouse tonight.

Jeremy Borash is with EC3.

What is Ethan’s thought with Spud?  Spud is a champion, X-Division champion.  He is a good hand, but EC3 is a franchise.

Tyrus interrupts, he has a phone call.

BDC Vs The Rising is next.

During the break, Rebel and Brooke are celebrating Brooke’s big win.  But now The Dollhouse attack Rebel, after Brooke goes to the back.

BDC Vs The Rising in 6-man tag, now.

The Rising win with Doomsday Device, picking up a big win.

Rockstar Spud will make his decision, next.

EC3 just had a conversation that will change Spud’s life, forever.

Last week, James Storm had an interesting proposal for Mickie James.

In Nashville, Tennessee, Mickie arrives.  She is talking to Magnus on the phone.  James runs into Mickie.

Spud is out to the ring, now.

It’s been a year filled with ups and downs for Spud, but he has a choice of his career to make.  Jeremy Borash asks does he hang onto the X-Division Title, or does he relinquish the title, and get an opportunity at the World Title?

This is a once in a million chance for Spud.  He is just like all of us.  He needs more time, but HB denies that.

The decision needs to be made, now.

Does he keep the title, or does he face this man…

Kurt Angle.

Spud is the ultimate underdog.  He has to understand fully, what he is going against.

Kurt is the only Olympic Gold Medalist.  He is a 13-time World Champion.  He is here to say there is no chance in hell Spud will win.

What is his decision?

Ladies and gentlemen….EC3….

Trouble….Trouble….Trouble.

Look at Spud, he stands in the ring as a 2-time X-Division Champion.  That is an incredible career, but look at him.  He isa fish swimming with sharks.

EC3 called him a gazelle, a lion, but look at Kurt.  He is a world-class athlete.  Kurt is the greatest wrestler that has ever been in the ring, until EC3 came along.

EC3 just got off the phone with his Aunt Dixie Carter.  They have agreed to offer him a lifetime contract as Chief of Staff, the boys would be back.

Come back home.

Spud loves his Chief of Staff.  He would have done anything for Dixie.  He would have done anything for Ethan.  He thought of him as a brother, but then Carter fired him.  He slapped him, he spit on him, he laughed at hi, he then shaved his head.

This has always been about Ethan.  He had everything on a silver platter.  Spud has worked 14 years for everything he has had.  And all EC3 would be a spoiled little prick.  He can shove that offer up his ass.  Spud is cashing in his X-Division Title, because next week, he will face Kurt Angle for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

EC3 gives Spud a cheap shot, and Kurt tells Ethan tonight, we will see a tag match of EC3 and Tyrus Vs Kurt and Spud.

Austin Aries is giving Bobby Roode a pep talk.  They have played right to The Wolves’ game plan.  It’s time to do their own thing, and Aries wants Roode to wear something.

More from the meeting, Storm calls Mickie a star and is glad he was able to give her this opportunity, and he can give her so much more.

Storm tells Mickie he wants her to join Storm.  To join him in this journey.  Magnus can’t provide for her.  Storm wants Mickie and Dominick to join The Revolution.

Mickie tells Storm that Magnus is Dominick’s son, she can’t do that.  And if this is what this is about, she is going to leave.

Storm apologizes, he will stand by Mickie no matter what choice she makes.

Best of 5 series match is up now.  The Wolves Vs The Dirty Heels.

This is a must-win for The Heels.

The Dirty Heels pick up the win when Roode nails Eddie with a chair behind the ref’s back.  Roode didn’t want to, but he had to.  And now he embraced the win.

Tonight, Spud and Kurt Vs EC3 and Tyrus.

Video footage of Storm pushing Mickie James off the platform, she had a nasty fall.  He calls Nick to say Mickie won’t be able to make it for dinner.

Madison Rayne is in the ring, and she is sick of being in the sidelines.  While people like Velvet Sky, someone who was told to take her ball and go home.  But because of the fact that the TV cameras are on, she will show up.

Here comes Velvet Sky.

Velvet is just trying to get her spot back.  But allow Madison to remind Velvet what her spot was.  She slaps Velvet.

Spear, followed by a Stunner.

Angelina Love is done with this.  Velvet doesn’t work here, and she just assaulted a very good friend of hers.  So security, arrest her.

They can do this the easy way, or the hard way.  The last time, it was the hard way.

It still is, but the security grab Velvet and cuff her.

This is what happens to trash like Velvet.  She gets arrested, again.  She goes to jail, again.  Velvet is just a fan, and Angelina is the star.

She slaps Velvet twice, both times Velvet smiles.  But Angelina with the elbow now.

Time to take Velvet to jail.

More security come out, but this time they are here because Angelina put her hands on a fan, and they are here to take her away.

Our main event is next, Kurt and Spud Vs EC3 and Tyrus.

This is the real Taryn Terrell, and she faces Kong, next week.

Main event tag action.  EC3 and Tyrus Vs Spud and Angle.

Spud and Kurt win when Spud hits a Bulldog, pinning Tyrus.

Kurt and Spud go face to face, but Austin Aries interrupts.

He tells them that next week, Spud gets a World Title shot, and he gets that shot.  But, like creating Option C, Austin Aries is cashing in his briefcase, and will face the winner later in the night.

Destination X next week.  Kurt Angle Vs Rockstar Spud, with Austin Aries facing the winner.

And X-Division is on the map as we start the march to a new X-Division Champion.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I love hearing The Pope do commentary, please continue that.

We also had a good segment with Angle, Spud, and EC3, add Aries to the mix, next week will be fun.

I just wish Destination X was after Slammiversary, because the focus needs to be on that show.

Match 3 of Heels Vs Wolves delivered, as did BDC Vs The Rising.  In fact, the wrestling was very good throughout the night.

This first experience with ROH and Impact together was positive.  Let’s hope this continues.

What were your thoughts?  Send them to me.

Ring Of Honor Wrestling 6/3/15….Welcome To Destination America

For only the 3rd time, I am watching Ring of Honor.  It’s not because I don’t like the product, but rather because my cable company never carried them, until now.

Destination America is the new home of Ring of Honor, and we are all set.  Tonight, The Briscoes in tag team action against The House of Truth.

The Briscoes have a promo, with Mark acting like Mark.  Jay tell us Jay Lethal has been ducking the champ, and tonight, The Briscoes will show what they will do to Jay at Best in the World.

Let’s get it on.

We are in Toronto, Ontario Canada.  Kevin Kelly and King Corino welcome us to the show.  Best in the World, live on PPV.  Title Vs Title, Briscoe Vs Lethal.

Tonight, The Briscoes Vs The House of Truth.  Also BJ Whitmer Vs Moose.

And our first match, Will Ferrera Vs Kushida.

Kushida hits the Hoverboard Lock for the win.

The two men shake hands after the match, as is the custom in Ring of Honor.

At Best In The World, Friday June 19th, it will be Title Vs Title.  Jay Lethal Vs Jay Briscoe.

The Addiction, Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian join Corino and Kelly.

Next week, The Addiction will face Red Dragon, next week, for the Tag Team Titles.

Kazarian makes it clear, tag title match, next week.  Now Kevin has Kazarian’s permission to worship them.

The Briscoes Vs House of Truth, tonight.

Our next match is “The Last Real Man” Silas Young Vs Watanabe.

Silas picks up the win with the TKO.

“Ravishing Rick Bill Cowler” Silas Young picks up the win.

Whitmer Vs Moose is next.

Moose is in line for a Number One Contender match at Best in the World.

These two men have had a feud for a month, it seems.  Whitmer represents The Decade.

Whitmer doesn’t want to wrestle Moose tonight.  As a great leader, he likes to teach these young kids about opportunity.  So Colby Corino, Steve’s son is going to wrestle.

Moose absolutely destroyed the 18-year-old Colby, who recently joined The Decade,  He gave him a sick powerbomb on the outside, and Adam Paige pushed him back in the ring, only for Mosse to pin him with his boot.

Steve Corino is beside himself.

Truth Martini has this all worked out for Jay, they will take care of things tonight.

Jay Lethal comes to the ring, not in his wrestling gear.  So he changed the main event here of Donovan Diecheck and Jay Diesel Vs The Briscoes.

Jay Lethal joins commentary.

The Briscoes win with Doomsday Device.  Diecheck takes Mark Briscoe out after the match, and Jay sets Diecheck up for J-Driller, but Lethal stops him.  Jay hits a J-Driller instead to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

For a first show, they did what they are known best…wrestle.  I hated though there was no introduction show Destination America gave us, because some of these storylines confused me.  But I will catch up.

TNA dropped the ball on Jay Lethal, but I am glad to see him, along with The Addiction back on TV.  AJ Styles will show up from time to time too.  So it’s a reunion for me, knowing them all with TNA.

I was impressed by Kushida, not so much on Young.  Moose is a beast, and so is Diecheck.  Looking forward to seeing more episodes.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 6/1/15…Kevin Owens…A New Star Is Born

Last night, WWE gave us Elimination Chamber.  Ryback became the new IC Champion, and New Day retained their Tag Titles.

But the real story of the night was Kevin Owens defeating John Cena, clean in the ring.  Those two men square off in 2 weeks at Money in the Bank.

What happens tonight?

Raw is now.

Oh yeah, also last night, Dean Ambrose defeated Seth Rollins by DQ.  But Dean was awarded the WWE World Title, and he stole it.

We see footage of this from last night, kicking the show off.

And what’s a show starting off without The Authority?

We are live in San Antonio, Texas.

Stephanie introduces us to the WWE World Heavyweight Champion as Seth Rollins.  But he doesn’t have the title.  Stephanie tells us Dean stole the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, he stole the Money in the Bank contract, he stole the Intercontinental Title, and he was arrested for assault and batter last week, (But footage said he was innocent).

So should they fire Dean?  No, how about suspend him?  No.

HHH tells us Dean isn’t stupid.  He was told to return the WWE World Title before the show begins.  So he can return the title to the rightful owner, then they can discuss where we go from here.

No Ambrose, but crowd chants Justin Bieber.

HHH tells us to shutup, and get Ambrose out here now.

Enter Roman Reigns.

These guys aren’t happy to see Roman, but it looks like San Antonio is.

Dean isn’t happy, and he isn’t here.  He may never be here again.  Unless, he gets a rematch.  Not just any other rematch, but a ladder match.

This way there is a decisive winner.

Stephanie tells Roman they don’t deal with a lowlife.  And Roman tells Steph that low-life beat Seth.

It was by a DQ, But Ambrose pinned Rollins in the middle of the ring.

Seth said he did not beat him, he is still the WWE World Champion.

Roman brings up Seth doesn’t look like a champion.  He has lost to Ambrose, he lost to Reigns.  He used to be cool with The Shield, but now he runs with Mommy and Daddy.

This angers Rollins, and he accepts.  He tells them he doesn’t need anyone, he doesn’t need J & J Security, he doesn’t need Kane, and he sure as hell doesn’t need The Authority.  The match is on.

He walks off, and Stephanie asks him who he thinks he is.

HHH answers that he is Roman Reigns.  He is the man who had a Wrestlemania main event shot, but Seth Rollins ruined that shot.  Roman is in Money in the Bank Ladder match.  But maybe he isn’t, he will compete in the ring next, and if he loses, he is out of a shot at becoming WWE World Heavyweight champion, again.

We find out who Roman faces, next.

Reigns is facing King Barrett.

Reigns in what was a rather long match wins with a spear.

Was there really ever a doubt?

Last night at Elimination Chamber, Kevin Owens defeated John Cena, clean in the ring.

The Champ Is Here, Kevin Owens tonight, on Raw.

Byron Saxton is standing by with Nikki Bella.

She is the longest reigning current WWE champion.  So what is next for her?

Nikki is ready for anything.

Paige shows up.  She brings up winning the Divas Battle Royal, until Naomi attacked her, so she is owed a Divas Title match, one on one.

Nikki brings up that she sounds like Naomi, someone who thinks she is owed a title shot.  But challenge is accepted, and we will have it tonight.

Lilian Garcia introduces us to the new Intercontinental Champion, Ryback.

Later tonight, Ryback will face The Miz for the IC Championship.

Nobody likes an overly emotional “Big Guy”, but he is standing as the new Intercontinental Champion.  And the last time he was in San Antonio, this crowd gave him a standing ovation, and showed him what Ryback means to the crowd.  And he thanks us for that, as for defending his IC Title, we know what he says…

Feed Me More….

IC Title match is next.

The match never happens when The Big Show comes back, he decks Miz.  Big Show with the mic, and says if anyone beats Ryback, it’s going to be Big Show.  There is nobody bigger than The Big Show.

Ryback seems good with that.

Reigns defeated Barrett, later tonight, he has to face Mark Henry with the Money in the Bank ladder spot on the line.

Also tonight, Nikki Bella Vs Paige for the Divas Title.

The Champ is here, next.

Who is the next Mr. Money in the Bank?  We find out in 2 weeks, but here comes Kevin Owens.

When Kevin says he is going to do something, he delivers.  When he got to NXT, and Owens said he’d win NXT Title.  He delivered.  When Owens said he’d take out Sami Zayn, he delivered.  And when Owens said he’d take out John Cena, he delivered.

Last night was the biggest win of his career.  He should be on top of the world, but he is not.  After he won, he called him and spoke to his wife.  She was very proud of him, but when he spoke to his son, he was not.  He’s a John Cena fan.  He asked his father how John Cena is.  Owens should be okay with this, but he’s not.  It’s not his son’s fault, it’s just that for the last 10 years, Cena has been billed as a superhero.  The bright colors, the slogan, hustle, loyalty, and respect.  While Owens has been working his craft for 10 years, Cena became SuperCena.

Well, last night, he beat SuperCena.

So while the words Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect has been said, he beat a broken down man.  And in 2 weeks, he will expose John Cena.  And if you’re a parent, take your child, who is a John Cena fan, sit them down and watch too and see what a real role model is supposed to be, a man who says he is going to do.

Here comes SuperCena.

Man, Kevin Owens is a jackass.

He tells him to shut up, and act like he’s been there before.

After last night, people are talking about Kevin Owens.  After last night, Owens took Cena to the limit, but he won.

Ever since Cena has the US Title, he said someone would come down, answer the challenge, and be the better man.  He was going to come down this ring, shake his hand, but he doesn’t think Owens deserves this, because he isn’t even a real man.

A real man isn’t jealous by what other people have, and his son is corrupted because of the WWE marketing machine.  But if that was the case, they would have Adam Rose T-shirts, still believe in Funkasaurus, and one day want to play in XFL.

These people believe in Cena, whether they have signs, whether have shirts, or as the kid has, carrying a sign that says she’s beating cancer.

Which is awesome.

For 10 years, people said you would never make it in this business, that you were never good enough, but what happens is you kick that door down, and you prove people wrong.  That’s what Owens did, and he should be proud of that.  His three words have to be Fight Owens Fight.  Because now this is a bit of advice from a real man to half-man, what will happen when one of your promises doesn’t deliver.  Because in 2 weeks, what happens when a real wrestler loses to a real man?

The two men go face to face now, but Owens walks away.

A great segment, and I can’t wait to see their match in 2 weeks.

Tonight, Reigns Vs Mark Henry, spot of Money in the Bank on the line.

New Day is in the ring, and tells San Antonio that Tim Duncan is old, but New Day is hot.  They tell us too that when Kofi Kingston becomes Mr. Money in the Bank, they all become Mr. Money in the Bank.

Because New Day rocks.

Dolph Ziggler comes to the ring, to face Kofi.  Lana accompanies Ziggler.

Ziggler wins with a rollup.  New Day attack Ziggler, but here comes Prime Time Players to help.

6-man tag match is ongoing.

Ziggler, and PTP win when Titus hits a Pump Handle Slam.

Tonight, Nikki Bella Vs Paige, for the Divas Title.

But next, Reigns Vs Henry, with MITB spot on the line.

Reigns wins the match by countout, and still remains in the MITB ladder match.

Henry answers by giving him a World’s Greatest Slam, and a splash.

Henry just turned heel for the 850th time.

Reigns is in the back and is greeted by Steph and HHH.  Keep the vest on, because later tonight, he faces Bray Wyatt.

Sonic is doing auditions for a new commercial with WWE superstars.

Divas Title match is up now, Nikki Bella Vs Paige.

Nikki wins, or should I say Bellas, going old-school here with the Switch-a-roo, Brie coming in and rolls up Paige for the win.

Earlier tonight, Seth Rollins answers the title challenge to face Ambrose at Money in the Bank, in a ladder match.

But throughout the night, Reigns has wrestled to put his MITB spot on the line, defeating King Barrett and Mark Henry.

Later tonight, Reigns will face Bray Wyatt.

Orton Vs Sheamus is now.

Sheamus is DQ’d when he took the action to the outside and gave Orton 2 Brogue Kicks.

Sheamus is making a statement heading to Money in the Bank, in 2 weeks.

Byron Saxton is with Rusev, in crutches.  He has nothing, no woman, no title, no career.  He is a broken man.  But he will get it all back.

This Thursday night, Kevin Owens will host his Kevin Owens NXT Open Challenge.

Here comes the “Inspirational” Bo Dallas.

He tried to help Neville.  Now he just wants to hurt him.

I guess we are seeing a Neville Vs Dallas match.

Here we go.

Red Arrow, match is over.

Next, Reigns Vs Wyatt, winner is in Money In The Bank match.

Despite The Authority’s attempt to assist Bray, Wyatt knocks into Kane and Reigns hits a spear for the win.

Rollins tries to corner Reigns with The Authority, but Dean Ambrose shows up from behind.  Dean gives the title back to Seth, but Seth drops the title and Ambrose takes the title back.

Reigns and Ambrose head out of the ring and through the crowd as the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A very fun show tonight, setting up what should be a good PPV in 13 days.

I loved the Cena and Owens segment.  Their match last night was incredible, and yet I think they can top it and it starts in 13 days.

I also still sense a heel turn by Reigns, and this will happen in the ladder match.  Or, Reigns wins the title at the event, cashing in after winning MITB.

Or both?

What were your thoughts on the show?  I am looking forward to seeing what happens next.

WWE Elimination Chamber 5/31/15

Tonight, a bonus PPV, exclusively on WWE Network.  We have 2 Elimination Chamber matches, one for the Intercontinental Title, and a World Tag Team Title match.

But first, the Kick-Off show.

Here we go, keep checking here throughout the night.

Renee Young is joined by Byron Saxton, Booker T, and Corey Graves on the Elimination Chamber panel.

Rusev will not be in the Elimination Chamber match tonight.  He injured his ankle this past Thursday night against Ryback.

It’s a tough situation for Rusev, I hope he recovers quickly.

So who will be added to the Elimination Chamber IC Title match?

Booker T speculates it could be a former World Champion being added to the match.  Orton, perhaps?

Tom Phillips is in the Social Media Lounge.  We will hear from Lana later tonight.

Kane is on the phone, making sure everything will be set up.  New Day approaches Kane.

Kane makes sure that all three men have the opportunity to defend their titles, by putting all three men inside the chamber.  The pods will not be changed.

Later tonight on The Kick-Off show will be Miz TV, featuring Daniel Bryan.

Owens Vs Cena is being profiled now.

Last year, at NXT Arrival, Neville defeated Bo Dallas, tonight they compete in a WWE ring.

Also tonight, Divas Triple Threat for the Divas Title.  Paige Vs Nikki Bella Vs Naomi.

Our Elimination Chamber Kick-Off match tonight is going to be Zack Ryder Vs Stardust.

That match is set now.

Stardust wins the match CrossRoads.

Last Monday night on Raw, we see Lana walking away from Rusev.

Lana joins Tom Phillips at Social Media Lounge.

Lana likes Ziggler, it seems.

She liked Rusev, and will always be appreciative of what he did for her.  But it’s time to move on.

It’s time for Miz TV, with the returning The Miz.  Summer Rae  introduced The Miz.

Miz and his guest Daniel Bryan.

Miz is concerned for Daniel Bryan.  Daniel assures Miz that he is coming back to wrestle, he is writing a book, due out in July.

Daniel is sick of Miz TV, and he knows the fans are too.  But so are these guys…

The Meta-Powers.

They take care of The Miz, with the Flying Elbow and a Leg Drop.

Gawd, this is awful.

World Title video, with Ambrose Vs Rollins

Eden Stiles interviews Dean Ambrose.

There is no pressure for Ambrose tonight.  He is ready, and will do anything to piss HHH off as the new WWE World Champion.

Roman Reigns checks to see if Ambrose is ready, and assures him he is going to be in his corner tonight for their title match.

JBL gives us a tour inside Elimination Chamber.

And our show begins, now.

Our first match is for the WWE World Tag Team Titles.  New Day Vs Lucha Dragons Vs The Ascension Vs Prime Time Players Vs Los Matadores Vs Kidd and Tyson.

Los Matadores are eliminated first, with Fall of Man.  The Ascension pin Diego.

Lucha Dragons are eliminated, with Fall of Man, again by The Ascension.

2 more teams are set to exit from the pod.

The Ascension are now eliminated by Prime Time Players.

New Day will enter the chamber last.

Kidd and Cesaro are pinned when Cesaro had the Cesaro Swing, but Darren Young rolls him up for the pin.

So now it’s New Day Vs Prime Time Players.

New Day wins the match with Trouble In Paradise, retaining the Tag Titles.  A big cluster, but it was fun, and historic with Tag Titles on the line.

WWE Money in the Bank is in 2 weeks, June 14th.

Rusev will not compete in tonight’s Elimination Chamber match, for the IC Title.

Who will be the 6th man competing?

Backstage, Dolph Ziggler is warming up for his match.  Lana wishes him luck tonight.  Ziggler said it was too bad about Rusev.  He wanted to pin him himself, Lana told him tonight is not about Rusev, it’s about Ziggler.

Ziggler agrees, and says after his match, it will be about them.  Now Dolph will do what he does best.

Triple Threat match for the Divas Title is up now.

Paige Vs Naomi Vs Nikki Bella.

No seconds are out there in this match.

Nikki Bella wins the match with a Rack Attack, pinning Naomi.

Everything seemed so rushed here.  I can’t wait until Charlotte debuts soon on WWE roster.

Brie Bella comes out after the match, and rewards her sister with a hug.

Moving on.

Offspring “Coming For You” is the official theme song for Elimination Chamber.

Champion Vs Champion match is set.  Kevin Owens Vs John Cena.

It should be match of the night.

Lilian Garcia is back.

Kevin Owens made a statement tonight, pinning John Cena with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Match of the night, hands down and give Cena credit for making him look like an equal here in the ring.  Just a fantastic match.

Owens is on the mic, in tears.

On his first night of Raw, he said anyone that didn’t know him yet was not worth his time.  Well now, everybody knows who Kevin Owens is.

He is the man who started a fight with John Cena, and Owens is now the man who finished the fight.

Owens has some “veteran” advice for Cena.  It’s time for Cena to go, because his time is up, and Owens’ time is now.  The Champ Is Here.

The Elimination Chamber Kick-off panel is up now.

Bo Dallas tells us everyone needs help, he tried to help Neville.  But tonight, he is going to force Neville to BOlieve.

Neville Vs Bo Dallas is now.

Neville wins with Red Arrow.

It was good, but after that last match, it had no shot.

HHH comes to Ambrose and Reigns and informs them that while Kane will serve as an official, Reigns will not be in Ambrose’s corner, or else Dean will be DQ’d if Reigns interferes.

Daniel Bryan is out here for our next match, which is The Elimination Chamber match, for the Intercontinental Championship.

Dolph Ziggler Vs King Barrett Vs Ryback Vs Sheamus Vs R-Truth Vs…

Mark Henry.

Barrett is eliminated first with an assist by everyone involved, with Truth pinning him with a Lie Detector.

Truth is eliminated, with Shellshock by Ryback.

Henry is done now with a Brogue Kick by Sheamus.

We are down to Sheamus, Ziggler, and Ryback.

Ziggler is eliminated with a Brogue Kick.

Now it’s between Ryback and Sheamus.

Ryback wins the IC Title with Shellshock, pinning Sheamus.

I am happy for Ryback, but this match sucked. The crowd just can’t get into it, after the masterpiece that was Owens Vs Cena.

Ambrose Vs Rollins will hopefully pick it up.

Daniel Bryan endorses Ryback with this win, and Ryback puts Daniel over, calling him an inspiration.

A nice touch.

Tomorrow night, Stone Cold Podcast returns after Raw, with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s guest being Paul Heyman.

WWE Money in the Bank in 2 weeks.

Earlier tonight, Kevin Owens shocked the world, defeating John Cena.

Breaking news, in 2 weeks at Money in the Bank. The rematch, John Cena Vs Kevin Owens.

Ziggler, Neville, Reigns, Orton, Kofi, and Sheamus will vie for Money in the Bank in 2 weeks.

That is not all of the participants, just 6 so far.

Our main event is up now, Dean Ambrose Vs Seth Rollins, for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Ambrose wins the match…by DQ. The ref is knocked out when Rollins shoves him into Ambrose. Then Dean hits Dirty Deeds, another ref comes in and counts the pinfall for the win.

But the other ref told him about it, so while Dean wins, technically Rollins is still the WWE World Champion.

Reigns comes in and helps Ambrose fight off The Authority, and they leave with the title.

Possession is 9/10 of the law.

The show ends with Ambrose and Reigns leaving the building.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The ending was too good to be true, which tells me that we will get a rematch set for Money in the Bank.

In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if Reigns wins MITB ladder match, Ambrose wins title, and Reigns turns heel cashing in.

Overall, this show was highlighted by an amazing Cena Vs Owens match, where Owens made history. And the main event was good, even if the ending was a bit clustered.

But everything else just didn’t mesh well, especially the two chamber matches.

It felt like a rushed show, which is something this company can’t continue to do. Things are better when we get a slow build, and with this show being added just 2 weeks ago is not a good idea.

It takes away other builds for PPV, which is still important for your major shows.

But go out of your way to see Owens Vs Cena Part One, again. Part II is immediately in 2 weeks, which is something they can’t do too, but it’s a given Cena has to win that match.

But wouldn’t it be smart to save Cena Vs Owens III for Summerslam?

What were your thoughts on the show? Send them to me here, and I will talk to you tomorrow night for Raw.

WWE NXT 5/27/15…Samoa Joe Speaks Out

After last week’s Unstoppable special, we see the fallout from the event, including the debut of Samoa Joe.

WWE NXT is now.

We are at Full Sail University, in Orlando, Florida.

Sami Zayn is here.

But no, it’s Kevin Owens with Sami’s entrance theme.

We see footage from this past Monday’s Raw, Owens attacks Cena with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

He was here to challenge a NXT Title open challenge, but the fact is Kevin is not an insincere person.  And he feels he shouldn’t put their title against anyone that hasn’t earned the title shot.  He is all about defending his title against people who have earned the shot.

We hear John Cena sucks chants, and Kevin hasn’t heard the fans say Sami Zayn sucks, but he does.

He has heard people say that he is not a good man, but Kevin is a good man.  Kevin ended that horrendous theme song for Sami Zayn.  He doesn’t understand why people are surprised over what happened to Sami, because he warned Sami if he showed up, he would take him out, and he did that.

He defended this title, and that is what the essence of taking care of his family, and being a good man.

Also another example?  When Samoa Joe came out, he stepped away, and gave Joe his moment.  If Joe steps into his face again, he will end him as well.  And speaking of being a good man, this Sunday, he will take care of Cena and prove that the REAL champ is here.

Here comes NXT General Manager, William Regal.

William tells Owens the only reason he still has a job is because Regal touched Owens first, and Owens headbutted Regal.  But in the 6 months he has been here, he has laid out many superstars.   Alex Riley, Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn, Hideo Itami.

Owens will take credit for the others, but he insists he had nothing to do with Itami.

Owens warned Sami what was going to happen, so that is on him.  And frankly, Regal put the match together, so it’s on him too.

Enter Solomon Crowe.

Solomon heard Owens in the back say he thinks only people he face will have to earn the shots.  And Owens claim he is a good guy?  After what he saw with Zayn, he thinks Kevin is full of crap, and he’s scared because he knows deep down inside, he will lose.

Owens grants Crowe an opportunity, and Regal makes it happen.

So Owens laid out Neville, Riley, Zayn, Zayn, Zayn.  Well, at the end of the match, Owens will stretcher out Crowe too.

Rich Brennan, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

Last week, we see the video of someone attacking Itami, with Owens walking by.

Hideo Itami blew out his shoulder.  He doesn’t know who attacked him, and when he comes back, there will be no stopping him.

Bayley Vs Emma is next.

Last week, we hear an interview with Zack Ryder.  He was sitting next to a crazy guy like Mojo, and Mojo is hyped, running behind Zack.

Bayley Vs Emma is now.

Emma has new music, by the way.

Emma wins with her Emma Lock, making Bayley tap.

Dana Brooke helped Emma take out Bayley and here comes Charlotte to help, but Dana and Emma took her out too.

Footage from Unstoppable, with Corbin Vs Rhyno.

Footage from last week with Renee Young interviewing Corbin.  He showed that he is the only unstoppable force.

Rhyno approaches him, and he had fun.  He says they do it again, sometime.  The sooner, the better.

Solomon Crowe Vs Kevin Owens.

We see video footage of Becky Lynch.

Elias Sampson and Mike Rollins will now face the team of Blake and Murphy, with Alexa Bliss accompanying them.

Blake and Murphy win with a Vertical Suplex, and Frogsplash combination.

Alexa gives one of the ham and eggers a Sparkle Splash for good measure.

Finn Balor won the Number One Contender match and defeated Tyler Breeze last week.

Finn is in action, next.

Devin Taylor is interviewing Blake and Murphy, with Bliss.  Blake and Murphy are winners, she is a winner.  So winners gravitate with each other.  Carmella is the Queen of Staten Island.  You know what is known for?  A garbage dump, so no wonder why she associates herself with Cass and Enzo.  Next week, they have a match, and Alyssa will send her back to the garbage dump.

Finn Balor Vs Tye Dillinger is now.

Balor wins with the Coup De Gras, picking up the pinfall.

Owens Vs Crowe is next.

Earlier today, the interviewer guys is with Jason Jordan has found his perfect partner, and we see Chad Gable.

Jason tells Chad he has a partner, and Chad hands him one of his towels

Our main event, Kevin Owens Vs Solomon Crowe is now.

Owens won in relative ease with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Just when Owens is about to take care of Crowe, here comes Samoa Joe.

Joe comes into the ring, and Owens leaves.  Giving Joe a warning next time he does this, Joe will be in the same position as Crowe is.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Just a paint-by-numbers show tonight.  The highlight for me was seeing Alexa Bliss as a heel.  I think she can be a big star someday.  She reminds me of Trish Stratus.  She is only 23 years old, so she will learn, and get better.

I love hearing Kevin Owens talk too.  He signed a WWE contract, so he will appear on Raw too, so it should be interesting what we see this Sunday night when he faces Cena.

What were your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me here.  I will talk to you tomorrow for Elimination Chamber.

Impact Wrestling 5/29/15…May Mayhem

We begin the show from earlier today, when Eric Young is driving to the Impact Zone parking lot.  Kurt Angle is waiting for them, and we get the two men fighting each other, with security stopping them.

Tonight, Angle Vs Young in an I Quit match.

We kick off the show with a 6 sides of steel match, Gail Kim Vs Taryn Terrell.

With some help from The Dollhouse, Taryn wins with a Cutter after Marti threw Gail down from the cage.

Taryn has been Knockout Champion for 191 straight days, 19 days away from tying Gail Kim’s longest title reign.

Taryn knocks out Earl Hebner, and here comes Awesome Kong.  They lock her out, while The Dollhouse take out Gail.

Taryn tells Gail she was nothing, and means nothing to her.  She takes Gail’s wedding ring off, and tries to break her ring finger.

Josh Matthews and Al Snow welcome us to the show.

Moments ago, we see Taryn break Gail’s ring finger, and Taryn took the ring away.

Video on James Storm, Magnus, and Mickie James.

Hardcore Country!!

Mickie James comes to the ring.

Mickie has agreed to come back for one more match, and she hopes she can give us one more great match.  But she is here to talk about friends and family.

Magnus is her fiancée, but he is also her best friend, and the love of her life.  James Storm means the world to her.

James Storm comes to the ring.

Mickie wants to personally apologize to James for Magnus hitting over his head with a guitar.

Storm tells Mickie she doesn’t have to apologize, because she did nothing wrong, just like Magnus won’t call and apologize, because he in his mind, he did the right thing.  And if the roles were reversed, he might have done the very same thing.

But Magnus is jealous.

Mickie tells James that he has more ring experience than maybe even Mickie.  He’s not trying to be jealous, he’s just protecting his family.

James would never hurt her family.  If holding the door for a woman is a bad thing, he’s a bad, bad man.

James went out and bought her an awesome guitar that was expensive.  He bought their son Donovan an awesome blanket with his name on it.  And he bought Magnus an old gladiator helmet he used to wear back in the day.

It was funny.

But in all seriousness, he set up a very important meeting, he is talking about people like Tim and Faith, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, even someone like Billy Corgan in the back.  They are interested in seeing Mickie James.

She tells him he shouldn’t have done this, and James said any decision made should not be a hard one, so he will be behind her no matter what decision she makes.

He gives Mickie a hug, and walks out.  Mickie tells him that she will be there at the meeting.

Gauntlet match for the X-Division Title.

Kenny King will break all backs, this match is for Destination X.  He will see Kurt Angle, or whoever the World Champion is then.

Gauntlet match is next.

Champion and challenger are separated, locked and alone.  But Eric Young wants to show us a tweet, and then he breaks some glass.

It’s time for the Gauntlet match.

Kenny King and Rockstar Spud were the two final competitors.  Kenny got a bit too confident, and Spud rolled up King for the pinfall, and became a 2-time X-Division Champion.

Still to come, Kurt Angle Vs Eric Young in an I Quit match.

But next, match 2 of The Wolves Vs The Dirty Heels in a Best of 5 series.

This Wednesday, Impact Wrestling is moving to 9:00 Wednesday night.

Earlier tonight, Angle and Eric attacked each other, and are now separated.

The Dirty Heels Vs The Wolves is now.

The Wolves win with a Powerbomb, followed by Cutter combination, with Davey pinning Aries.

An incredible match here, certainly better than their match 2 weeks ago.

The Wolves are up 2-0.

Velvet Sky is in the building, so Angelina Love will handle this situation by herself right now.

Kenny King is trying to get a hold of MVP, and he hasn’t returned any of the calls.

Angelina Love shows up, and sees “Darth Velvet” with the same people she belongs in.  Angelina will take care of Velvet, because she brought her own friends.

Her own personal security team.

They will take her out of the building if she touches Angelina again, because she was fired.

Velvet hops the railing, and goes after Angelina, again.

The security handcuff Velvet away.

Mr. Anderson finally gets EC3, without Tyrus.  Tyrus will be locked inside a steel cage.

EC3 Vs Mr. Anderson is next.

EC3 wins in a clean victory with One Percenter, after reversing a Mic Check.

Anderson wants to shake EC3’s hand, but EC3 refuses to do it.

Angle Vs Young in an I Quit match, next.

Spud is backstage, talking about being a 2-time X-Division champion.  It cements his status, with the best champions, guys like AJ Styles, Joe, Christopher Daniels, and Jerry Lynn.  This title means the world to him.

The interview guy asks him about Destination X being close, what is he going to do?  Spud hadn’t even thought about that, since he was chasing the title.  But Imagine a guy like him cashing in on the X-Division Title, and being World Champion.  Imagine…

Our main event, Eric Young Vs Kurt Angle is up now in an I Quit Match, for the World Title.

Kurt makes Eric quit with a sit-down Ankle Lock.

Impact is moving to Wednesdays, starting this Wednesday, June 3rd.

The Wolves Vs The Dirty Heels, we will also hear from Rockstar Spud.  Will he give up the title, and fight for the World Title?  And Velvet Sky is in the house, what happens this Wednesday night?

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A little over 5 months has passed, and there are already talking about changes within The Destination America family.  For one, Impact Wrestling will move to Wednesday nights, but a new show will debut right before it.  Ring of Honor Wrestling, starting at 8:00.  I have only seen 2 episodes of the show, since my home in Canton, Ohio doesn’t get the show.  But now, it will be in my home every Wednesday night.

So the question becomes what happens to TNA, when there are rumors of Destination America cancelling it in September?  Such a confusing situation, but if both companies do this right, we could see them work together.

Let me put it this way, if they were smart, they would work together.  After all, they follow each other, right?  Make this a cohesive team effort.  But I have this feeling it won’t happen.

Anyway, on to the show tonight.  I liked it, the matches seemed big, and the results meant something.

I just don’t like Destination X being here in a few weeks, it should be in the month of July, like it has been previously.  This just seems like a throwaway show, but what do I know?

What were your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me here.  Have a great weekend.

WWE Monday Night Raw 5/25/15…Everyone Needs An Entourage

We get a nice Memorial Day video, showcasing the heroes that have paved the way for us.

Wow, what a moving video too, thank you to the men and women, who served protecting us.

Eden Stiles tell us to stand in silence to the ones who made the great sacrifice for us, and our country.  10 bell salute.

We are live in Long Island, New York.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show.

The Authority kick the show off, which we all knew, right?

Dean Ambrose stole his title shot, by cheating his way through, and taking someone else’s opportunity.

The Authority made this decision through duress, and that is not how they operate.  It’s not what’s best for business.  Dean never deserved the title shot, and if they wanted to, they could take that title shot away from Ambrose.

And HHH can fire Ambrose, just like that.  He thought about it, but Rollins asked him not to.

Ambrose really isn’t a threat to Rollins.  He just rode Seth’s coattails, while they were on The Shield.

HHH needs to have a contract signing, for his shot at the title this Sunday at Elimination Chamber.  Just come on down, and sign it.

You ask, and he shall receive.

Ambrose can’t sleep, so he counts punching Seth Rollins in the face, and by the time he reaches 200 punches, he sleeps like a baby.  Normally, he gets a kick by kicking the crap out of Seth Rollins, but next time, he wants a WWE World Title shot next week.

He hopes the fans enjoyed it as much as he did, by using a concrete and a threat.  He knows The Authority will enjoy seeing a new face of the WWE, Dean Ambrose.

When Ambrose becomes champion, he has a list of demands.

  1.  J & J Security will not wear shoes, like a respectable hobbit should.

  2.  Kane to wear just a collar, because he is just a lap dog anyway.

  3.  Seth Rollins can drunk dial Selena Gomez, since he is Justin Bieber.

Seth tells the fans he is proud of being called Justin Bieber, because Justin is a very successful singer.  Dean Ambrose is just a cockroach, who doesn’t amount to anything.  So step into the ring, and sign the contract.

There is only one way to find out if Ambrose is crazy enough to come down to the ring, and sign the contract.

And he comes down to the ring, but Dean has friends.

Roman Reigns comes down.

It’s so cute these Shield boys team together, says Stephanie.  Ambrose has until the end of the night to sign the contract.  But she can make the main event.  Kane and Seth Rollins Vs Ambrose and Reigns.

But that match is now.

Ambrose and Reigns win, when Ambrose pins Rollins with a rollup.

Ambrose assures Renee Young that at the end of the night, Ambrose will sign that contract.

J & J Security interrupt, but Ambrose takes care of them, and also the camera guy too.

Kevin Owens video is playing, and this Sunday, Champion Vs Champion, Cena Vs Owens.

Now comes Rusev.

A limo shows up, it’s the cast of Entourage, who are the guest stars for tonight’s show.

Rusev Vs R-Truth.

Rusev wins in quick fashion with an Accolade.

Rusev wants Lana to come out.

Commercial break.

We come back, and see Lana walking to the ring.

Rusev knows Lana cares about him.  Despite costing him his match at Wrestlemania.  Despite Rusev losing to Cena in an I Quit match.  Despite kissing that blonde bimbo.  But Lana is just like any woman who cares, and does whatever they can to throw themselves at Rusev.

Lana does care for Rusev.

They can still crush together, and dominate USA.  Just take Rusev’s hand, and all will be forgotten.

They can take back mother Russia together, and they can dominate together.  Just take his hand, and things will be better.

Lana takes his hand, and they embrace.

Now Rusev needs Lana to say three magical words, I was wrong.

Uh-Oh!!

Lana walks away.

Just admit Lana it was all your fault, and everything would be back to normal.

Lana was not wrong, Rusev said I Quit.

Rusev didn’t quit, Rusev never quits.  Lana needs to know her place, woman.

Rusev owns Lana, so get back in here.

Lana tells Rusev he is a liar, and a quitter.  He is such a coward that he doesn’t take responsibility of his actions.  She is not a victim, and will not stand for his strong, brute, caveman ways, thick-headed mind again

Enter Dolph Ziggler.

Ziggler and Lana share a kiss, which Rusev is livid about.

Ziggler is confronted by HHH and Rollins.  Ambrose has done enough, and he brings in the camera guy, asking him if he’s the one who assaulted him.  The guy thinks it was a shove, but yes.

Ambrose is being arrested.

Ambrose is being escorted out of the building, with Rollins loving every second of it.

King Barrett is in the ring, he is set to face Ryback.

With taped ribs and all, Ryback hits Shellshock for the win, over King Barrett.

HHH is on the phone with the cops.  Ambrose is being booked as we speak, and he will not make it by the end of the night.

The cast of Entourage shows up.

They bring up Ronda Rousey to Stephanie, and she is not amused by this.

Stephen Amell of “Arrow” is here and is going face to face with Stardust.

Stardust Vs Neville is now.

Neville Vs Bo Dallas is set for this Sunday at Elimination Chamber.

Neville wins with a Red Arrow, in front of Arrow.

Bo Dallas shows up during the match, and tells his little buddy to get himself back up, then sweeps the leg, knocking Neville down.

Entourage meet the Divas.

Kevin Connelly meets up with Zack Ryder.  This is the last time WWE is in the Nassau Coliseum.  They have an idea with Zack.

Ziggler is talking backstage with Lana.  Ziggler Vs Sheamus is next.

Sheamus wins with a Brogue Kick, after Rusev shows up to try to take out Ziggler.  Dolph hits a Superkick, and Sheamus picks up the win.

Rusev takes advantage of a beaten Ziggler, and locks on The Accolade, taunting Lana to kiss him now.

The John Cena United States Open Challenge is next.

Champion Vs Champion this Sunday night, exclusively on WWE Network.

Cena is out now.

Cena once again tell us that the fans say the same things every week…Let’s go Cena/Cena sucks.

There are those who fight for Cena, and there are those that fight against him.

For those of you who chant Let’s go Cena.  They believe what Cena believes in, hustle, loyalty, and respect.  No matter what the environment, or what’s in front of you, never give up.  For the last 10 years, they believe in what is right.

The crowd wants Ryder.

But the last 10 years, they have formed a fraternity, a bond that they will fight, no matter the boundaries around them.

And for the ones that say Let’s go Cena, he is grateful for their undying support.

But then there are the others, who chant Cena sucks.

And why?  Because for 10 years, they have been clamoring for someone who is not Cena to come in, knock him down, and keep Cena down.

But here is the difference.

Time after time, hopeful after hopeful have come in, tried, and failed.

Cena was introduced to another hopeful, named Kevin Owens last week.

Kevin debuted Raw last week, broke the internet, and two days after, he broke his best friend’s back.

So here is the issue.  The people chanting Cena Sucks, will be chanting Fight Owens Fight.

This Sunday, you may no hear Cena sucks.  You might hear, Let’s Go Cena/Fight Owens Fight.

Fight Owens Fight does not promise Win Owens Win.

Last Monday, Owens showed the world he can start a fight, but this Sunday, he may not be able to finish a fight.

But that is Sunday night, and tonight is Monday night.  Which means another superstar gets a chance.  And Long Island is the place to be, John Cena is the kind of champion.

So you want some, come get some.

The cast of Entourage come out.

Cena tells them the US Open Challenge is open to anyone, so which of them is stepping in the ring.

Kevin tells Cena that a superstar is ready to take this challenge.  Long Island’s Ice-Z….Zack Ryder.

Ryder Vs Cena is now.

Ryder made one mistake, and Cena capitalized with an AA, pinning Ryder.

Kevin Owens shows up, with another Pop-Up Powerbomb.

The NXT Champion will be ready for a fight this Sunday, stomping on the United States Title.

Backstage, The Authority are impressed with Kevin Owens.

Seth Rollins tells them he is the future, and present.

Renee Young asks The Authority for an update on Dean Ambrose.  Stephanie assures Renee that Dean will have an opportunity at the end of the night to sign the contract.  But Renee tells them they had Dean arrested, and Rollins said Dean got himself arrested.  If you did the crime, you must do the time.

We see Ambrose being arrested earlier tonight.

It’s Tamina Vs Paige, with The Bella Twins joining commentary, next.

Tamina picks up the win with an assist by Naomi.

Triple Threat match for the Divas Title.  Nikki Bella Vs Naomi Vs Paige is set for this Sunday.

It’s time for The New Day.

The Rock is now a member of the famed Walk of Fame.  “San Andreas” comes out this Friday.

New Day are upset they are being forced to defend their Tag Titles inside the Elimination Chamber.

Even this city of losers can recognize champions, as Big E. says.

Here comes Kane?

Kane hears the argument, but they have the same opportunities as winning the Chamber matches as any team does.  That is fair, but what’s unfair is what they will face tonight.  They will face Cesaro and Kidd, Los Matadores, The Ascension, Lucha Dragons, and Prime Time Players in a 10-on-3 match.

A no contest when all tag teams fight each other.

The New Day are left standing, and they win by DQ.

But Kidd and Cesaro take out New Day.

Tag Team Elimination Chamber match is set for this Sunday.

A sneak peek at Daniel Bryan’s DVD will be shown immediately after Raw, on WWE Network.

The Authority come out now.

Rollins told us that Dean Ambrose is a worthless thug.  He almost won his title shot last week, but tonight, he is behind bars.

Stephanie tells us that our crew work hard, and the camera dude is no different.  He has 3 newborn triplets.

Stephanie can’t discuss the court case any longer.

HHH told us they were willing to give “The Lunatic Fringe” a title shot, but he wasted that opportunity, so therefore….

Here comes Roman Reigns.

The Authority have Reigns set up, but the police come back, and it’s Dean Ambrose doing the driving.

Ambrose and Reigns stand tall when Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds on Kane, and then Ambrose signs the contract.

This Sunday, Elimination Chamber with the WWE World Championship on the line.  Dean Ambrose Vs Seth Rollins.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This didn’t feel like a special episode tonight, we are 6 days away from a special show.  What were your thoughts?  Send them to me.

NXT Takeover: 5/20/15 Unstoppable

Tonight, Kevin Owens puts the NXT World Title on the line against Sami Zayn.  We will also see Sasha Banks put her NXT Divas Title on the line against Becky Lynch.  Rhyno Vs Barry Corbin.  This and so much more.

Unstoppable is now.

We are live in Full Sail University, and our first match is Finn Balor Vs Tyler Breeze.

Rich Brennan, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

Before the show, Hideo Itami was attacked in the parking lot by an unknown assailant.

Hideo has a torn rotator cuff, will be out for a while.

Finn Balor wins the match with a Coup De Gras, after doing a dive off the top of the stage, outside of the ring.  Good match between these two, as always.

Balor is now the Number One Contender to the NXT Title.

Kevin Owens is watching backstage.  Either he’s not impressed with Balor, or he is but seems concerned.

A big dude from “Game of Thrones” is with Stephanie McMahon right now, watching the show.

Footage from NXT on tour is being shown now.

Emma and Dana Brooke are going to face off against Charlotte and Bayley.

Charlotte and Bayley win when Charlotte pins Emma with Natural Selection.

I just think Charlotte is ready for the main roster.

3 weeks ago, Sami Zayn wrestled on Raw, in front of his hometown crowd of Montreal.

Sami is backstage, getting himself ready for the main event.

The newest signees of WWE hopefuls are at ringside.

Rhyno Vs Corbin is now.

Corbin wins the match with End of Days.

This past Monday night, we see the impact Owens made on Raw, with John Cena.

The interview guy wants to get thoughts from Kevin Owens.

Kevin made sure Cena found out NXT Title is the real prize, over Cena’s title.  If Sami believes he will take his title from him, then Owens has some veteran “advice”, if he steps in the ring, he will show that this would be the final time we “see” Sami Zayn.

NXT Tag Title match is up now.  Cass and Enzo Vs Blakley and Murphy.

Murphy and Blakley win when Alyssa Bliss come out to distract Enzo. If Carmella doesn’t want to be the girl, then Alyssa accepted it.

She’s now with Blake and Murphy.

Eva Marie is in attendance, and nobody cares.

Coming up next, NXT Women’s Championship is on the line. Sasha Banks Vs Becky Lynch.

Sasha wins the match with Bank Statement submission, making Becky tap out, after Becky had an Armbar on Sash, but the Women’s Champ escaped to the ropes.

I loved the presentation of this match, filled with dram, excitement, and it started with something so simple, a champions/challenger entrance backstage, in the Gorilla Position.

Great job by both women here.

Becky Lynch is getting a standing ovation from the crowd.

Owens Vs Zayn, for the NXT World Title is up now, our main event.

The match ends in a no contest, after Owens just pummel Zayn. Sami Zayn was nailed into the post by Owens, and Kevin saw blood in the water so to speak.

William Regal came out and tried to stop Owens. This had Owens attack Regal, and gave him a headbutt.

Then we hear some new music, and it’s Samoa Joe. The beginning of his music was a resemblance of TNA theme. The crowd loved him, he was wearing a new Samoa Joe and was referred as Joe, so that’s the name he is using.

The two men had a stare down, with Owens leaving. Joe salutes the fans, and Owens comes right back, and the show ends with the two confronting each other.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I generally don’t like no contest finishes in main events of a PPV. It doesn’t bother me on a TV show, but a PPV? I hate them, but in something like this, where we get a debut of a new superstar, a major superstar that the fans knew, going in. I loved it.

It sets the future up, because we know Balor is getting the next title shot, but you can’t forget about Joe Vs Owens, down the line.

Something NXT does very well, that WWE does not do is plan in advance, so not only do you see the current product, but you also see what the future lies too.

Things are looking good for NXT.

But the best match of the night is the women’s match. Sasha Banks is making me a believer of her, as is Becky Lynch.

Overall, this was a good show, with the ending making the show better.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 5/18/15…Stephanie McMahon Returns

Right off the heels of last night’s Payback, J & J Security sent out a tweet that WWE’s own Matriarch, Stephanie McMahon will be here.

Seth Rollins kept his WWE World Title last night, with a Pedigree.  How does HHH feel about that?

3 titles are on the line tonight, can we call this Championship Monday?

Raw is now.

We are live in Richmond, Virginia.

The Authority kicks things off with a 20 minute promo it seems, and what’s a Raw without a 20 minute promo kicking things off?

Stephanie asks us if we missed her?  The crowd all says no.  It was such a successful night last night for WWE and The Authority.  And life is sweeter when you win, not that we would ever see that.  But Seth Rollins, the WWE World Champion defeated 3 men in one night.

HHH gloats about being right for choosing Seth Rollins as the “future” of WWE.  He hates to say he told us so, but he told us so.

Stephanie brings up tonight, we celebrate the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, called Seth Rollins:  The Architect of Life.

Now Seth’s 3 opponents will head to the back of the line.  It’s true, as HHH said this is about champions, and those 3 men don’t know how to win the big matches.

But speaking of championships, we see the Intercontinental Championship.

And of course, Stephanie was right all along about Daniel Bryan.  He has vacated 2 titles in 2 years, and his body can’t hold up the punishment.

Which is why HHH tell us the IC Title will be held up for The Elimination Chamber.  6 men compete for this prize.

And it will be featured on WWE Network May 31st.

Enter Sheamus.

Sheamus apologizes to interrupt, and the fans chant he looks stupid.

Sheamus is a big fan of both of them, Stephanie likes his look.

Sheamus brings up we don’t need The Elimination Chamber match, because Sheamus was the one who ended the silly Yes Movement.

We see last month on Smackdown, Daniel’s last match against Sheamus.

So they need to do what is best for business, and give Sheamus the IC Title.

Feed Me More….

Ryback comes to the ring.

Ryback agrees with Richmond, Sheamus looks stupid.

Daniel Bryan has more heart, more fire, and more determination that Sheamus will ever be.

We get the Yes chants, and Stephanie talks, but “The Big Guy” is talking.

Daniel may not be the size of Ryback and Sheamus, but he has the fire and has put his body on the line for the IC Title.

Sheamus loves to pick on little guys, how about Sheamus picking on “The Big Guy”?

Stephanie assures that the two will be in The Elimination Chamber match, and HHH tells us they can wrestle each other, now.

Sheamus picks up a cheap victory, pretending his eye was hurt and when the ref’s back was turned, Sheamus nails a Brogue Kick.

2 of the 6 men in the Chamber match will be Ryback and Sheamus.  Other 4 men will be revealed tonight.

Tonight, Seth Rollins:  Architect Of A Dream.

HHH and Stephanie thank Kane for helping Rollins, and Kane saw a different side to Seth.  He thinks he has grown up.

Rollins has Champaign to celebrate.  Kane deserves it too, because Rollins saved his job.

Dean Ambrose shows up, he beat Rollins the last time they faced one on one.  So the way he sees it, he will grant Seth a rematch in 2 weeks at Elimination Chamber….only if Rollins puts the WWE World Title on the line.

Seth brings up what HHH and Steph said before about Ambrose joining Orton and Reigns at the back of the line.

HHH tells Kane he can handle this, and Kane tells Seth he will choose who his next opponent is, and Seth wants nothing to do with Ambrose.

Dean tells Kane he should be a shame of himself for being nothing but a butler.  “The Devil’s Favorite Seed” being a butler.

Kane orders Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt tonight.

Renee Young is in the ring, bringing out Neville.

Neville will face Barrett next, but he debuted in WWE the night after Wrestlemania, and how does it feel being a WWE superstar?

Neville said there is nothing like being a WWE superstar.  And while he has his doubters, he loves proving them all.  And he feels 10 feet tall when he is up in the air.

Renee asks him how was the transition from being the longest reigning NXT Champion, to being a WWE Superstar.

Here comes Bo Dallas.

Bo talks about the little engine that could, but he doesn’t BOlieve Neville will last in the WWE ring.

Neville reminds us that he BOlieved he beat Bo Dallas for the NXT Title.

Bo attacked Neville, and went for his knee.

Enter King Barrett.

Neville’s knee was giving him problems, he slipped on the ropes and King Barrett took over, with a Bull Hammer.

Now comes Bo Dallas to lay a boot on Neville’s knee.

Last night, John Cena defeated Rusev in an I Quit match, and later tonight, we will see a John Cena US Title Open Challenge.

But next, Rusev’s reaction.

There is no Lana tonight, which the fans hate.  Lana needs to learn her place, and she does not speak for him.  Rusev speaks our stupid English language well, and he did not say I Quit.

We want Lana.

There is no Lana, shutup.

John Cena did not make him say I Quit, Rusev crushed John Cena.

He wants to restart the match, right now.

Here comes Lana.

Rusev asked Lana not to show up, and Rusev told her not to show up.  Lana wanted to explain herself, and Rusev is misunderstood.

She believes in Rusev, and has believed in him since day one.  She believed that Rusev would be the first man to make John Cena say I Quit.  But that didn’t happen, that was a disappointment, but she was here to protect him.

He tells her she is nothing, and Lana told him that she cares about him, so what she supposed to do?  Just stand there, and hear Rusev scream in pain.  He said I Quit three times in Bulgarian.

Rusev tells Lana he doesn’t need her, nobody needs Lana.  Her feelings are weak, and he orders her to leave.

And she does.

Rusev!!

Last night, we get a very brief The Shield reunion at Payback.

We will get a Seth Rollins Celebration, also tonight, we get a Tag team Title match with New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro, with Xavier Woods banned at ringside.

Ambrose Vs Wyatt is now.

Bray Wyatt wins when J & J Security come out to throw off Ambrose, and Wyatt hits Sister Abigail.

The Authority are watching this, and love it.

Divas Title is on the line tonight.  Nikki Bella Vs Naomi.  Also tonight, John Cena United States Open Challenge.  But next, Tag Title match is set for New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro.

We are live in Richmond, Virginia.  Cole, Booker, and JBL show us yet another set of Tough Enough audition videos.

Tag Title match is up now.  New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro.

New Day is DQ’d when they keep attacking Cesaro and Kidd.  But the challengers take care of them after the bell rings.

During the match, we find out R-Truth, King Barrett, and Rusev all will be in the Elimination Chamber.  So 5 of the 6 men are brought up.

But as this was happening, Lucha Dragons, Los Matadores, The Ascension, and Prime Time Players all came out, and took each other out.  PTP was left standing at the end of this segment.

So these are the 6 teams in the Elimination Chamber match for Tag Team Titles.

Roman Reigns returns this Thursday night on Smackdown.

John Cena comes out now.

Cena shows us the belt, so I guess The Champ is Here.

Cena gives us a USA chant now, it seems.

We all come from different walks of life, and he hears us every Monday so we all have our different opinions.  But we are all Americans, and he is proud to wear that red, white, and blue banner each and every single night.

This is a true symbol of excellence, and he gives anyone an opportunity every week.  We know WWE Championship is the championship.  But this US Title is OUR title, and The Champ Is Here.

So who answers the Cena challenge?

Kevin Owens….

Owens has the mic.

Hello John, he congratulates Cena for his victory last night.  He would introduce himself, but he knows who he is.  And if anyone doesn’t know who Owens is, then those people aren’t worth his time anyway.

Cena introduces him as NXT Champion, Kevin Owens.

Owens knows that Cena feels guilty about Sami Zayn’s injury, but the truth is Owens injured him before he answered Cena’s challenge.  And this Wednesday, Owens will finish what he started.

Cena now butters up the fans, by saying nobody can be called a waste of time.  Because without them, there would be no Owens.  Without them, there would be no Raw.  And without them, there would be no WWE.

So allow Cena to give Owens some advice.

Owens has done this for 15 years, he just didn’t get a break like Cena, until now.  Cena doesn’t give him any advice.

Cena gives him a warning.  Zayn fought, he didn’t give up, and he saw fire in Zayn’s eyes.  So Owens is going to have a big challenge set this Wednesday.  And Cena sees Owens as a scared little kid.  He doesn’t have that fire in his eyes, and if he wants to prove him wrong, then the open challenge is still on, come get some.

Owens tells Cena he doesn’t know him.  He has a championship, and he has nothing to prove.  They will meet someday, but on Owens’ terms, not Cena.

Owens kicks Cena in the nuts, and then lays him out with a sit down Powerbomb.

Switching gears, as Cole loves to do.

Daniel Bryan video from last Monday night.

Ziggler is next.

Ziggler Vs Stardust is now.

Ziggler wins in quick fashion with a Zig Zag.

Michael Cole is with Ziggler, who makes a bad joke about how his face looks right now.  But Ziggler is more hideous about losing to Sheamus, but he is ready to go.

Cole tells Ziggler that he is in the Elimination Chamber match to try to get the IC Title on May 31st.

Ziggler is ready for anything, any competitors.

Here comes Lana.

The crowd chants they want Lana, and Ziggler is okay with that.  She lays a kiss on Dolph.

One more kiss, and Lana seems to like it.

But now comes Rusev.

Rusev kicks Ziggler, and starts screaming at Lana, as to which Lana slaps Rusev, and Ziggler hits a Zig Zag.

Rusev is irate, and Kane wants the celebration to take place.  We see Adam Rose making out with Rosa Mendes.

Everyone is making out here tonight.

NXT Takeover:  Unstoppable is this Wednesday night.

Harper and Rowan Vs Fandango and Zack Ryder. is now.

Harper and Reigns win the match.

The Bellas are headed to the ring, but Stephanie wishes Nikki luck on her match, and tells Brie that she is hoping Daniel gets better, but offers counseling for Brie.  And for that, she wishes Brie not to accompany Nikki to the ring.

Nikki Vs Naomi for the Divas Title is now.

Tamina causes the DQ on Nikki, with a superkick.  When Naomi and Tamina attack Nikki, here comes Paige to help out Nikki.

This is her house.

BAM!!  RamPaige, this was a message….This is Paige’s house.

Earlier tonight, Kevin Owens sent another message.  He hit a Popup Powerbomb on Cena.

Then Kevin threw the US Title down, and stomped on it.

Backstage, HHH hugs Kevin Owens.

Renee Young is with Kevin.  He tells Renee that at Elimination Chamber, he will get his one on one match with Cena.

He tells John to keep an eye this Wednesday night to see how Kevin works in the ring, because in 2 weeks, the champ isn’t there, it’s here with Owens.

Seth Rollins Championship Celebration is up next.

The cast of Entourage will guest star on Raw, next week.

The Authority are in the ring and tell us something she enjoys more is seeing someone try to reach for that brass ring, and achieve it, and go beyond.  That person is Seth Rollins.

HHH tells Seth they have been behind him since day one.  They witnessed him winning Money in the Bank, then main event Wrestlemania, and win the WWE World Title.  Since then, he has beaten 6 men, in 3 matches.  He sees “The Cerebral Assassin” in Rollins.  And when he won last night with a Pedigree, HHH had goosebumps.

They are here to celebrate Seth Rollins.

They want to share some thoughts from The Authority and we start with Kane.

There are so many things he wants to say to Rollins right now.  They haven’t seen eye to eye with each other.  But then again, Kane is taller than Rollins.  But he can say Kane is glad he is still WWE World Champion, and Rollins is best for business.

Is that all you have to say Kane?

Thank you for saving his job, and he has a video to play for Seth.

A very nice video being played.

Jamie’s turn to speak.

It’s been a privilege to be at the side of Rollins.  And where he comes from, the cream rises to the top.  It’s been an honor to serve for you.

And it’s time for Joey.

Joey tries to say something, but Ambrose has something to say.

Ambrose was in the book, looking for the perfect Justin Bieber outfit.  But he couldn’t find one, so he will give Rollins another chance for a rematch, for the WWE World Title.

Rollins reminds Ambrose he is at the back of the line.

Ambrose wants his title match, or else.

Stephanie reminds Ambrose that he lost last night.  But Seth is a fighting champion, and he won’t be intimidated by Ambrose, so Seth, get him.

Ambrose has his way going after Rollins, and even has a cinder block set up, with Rollins head.  Ambrose threatens to hit Rollins with a chair on it, but Stephanie agrees to the match.  Ambrose will get a WWE World Title shot with Rollins.

Ambrose is about to hit him with a chair anyway, and The Authority help out Rollins.  Ambrose has things going his way and is about to hit Kane with Dirty Deeds.  But Rollins saves Kane, again and hits a Pedigree.

The show ends with Rollins standing tall, and telling us he is the champion.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a fun Raw tonight, and WWE will have a big 2 weeks ahead of them, starting last night on Payback.  Then tonight’s Raw, which saw the first confrontation between Owens and Cena.  We also have NXT’s show Wednesday night, which I will see Thursday, sorry but my Cavaliers will be playing Wednesday night, and then Elimination Chamber on May 31st.

We also have a big title match set in two weeks between Ambrose and Rollins.  The 2 members of The Shield battle it out.

We finally have a Lana babyface turn, it seems.  When she told us she is a Dolph Ziggler fan, and the Elimination Chamber match should be fun for the IC Title.

The one disappointing thing though was Naomi not winning the Diva’s Title, which brings me to the question why did she turn in the first place if she wasn’t going to win the Diva’s Title?

All of these face and heel turns for the Diva’s is just too much.  So is Paige a heel now too?  Or is she just a tweener, and will do whatever she wants?

Who knows, what were your thoughts of the show?

Send them to me here.

WWE Payback 5/17/15

Tonight, this is the 3rd annual WWE Payback.  We will see a Fatal 4-Way for the WWE World Title.  Seth Rollins will face Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and Randy Orton.  We will also see John Cena Vs Rusev, for the final time in an I Quit match.  And, Ryback will face the challenge of Bray Wyatt.

Payback Kick-off show begins in 5 minutes.

We are live in Baltimore, Maryland.  Renee Young welcomes us to the Payback Kick-off show, with Booker T, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton as our panel.

Our Kick-off match is The Meta Powers Vs The Ascension.

Also, Fatal 4-Way for the WWE World Championship is on the line.  Is Kane’s job on the line?

Eden Stiles is in the back with Dolph Ziggler.

He is facing Sheamus.

Ziggler is here to prove a point, he belongs in the ring and it’s about getting into Sheamus’ head.  He will take care of the bully, and do what he does best.

Sheamus will join Tom Phillips in the Social Media Lounge, later tonight.

Tonight, John Cena Vs Rusev in an I Quit match.

Cena Vs Rusev video is playing now.

Does Cena have it in himself to quit?  He has never lost in an I Quit match.  So how can Rusev make Cena say I Quit?

Daniel Bryan video is playing now, of him giving up the IC Title, due to an injury.

Very sad to see.

In 2 weeks, at Elimination Chamber, we will have a new Intercontinental Champion, inside the Chamber.

The effects of Daniel Bryan giving up a title, due to an injury, again.

Eden is with The Bella Twins, wanting to get Brie’s thoughts about her husband, Daniel.

It’s been a tough road for him, but he has the biggest heart she has ever known.  She wants to thank The WWE Universe for his support, and Daniel is the biggest inspiration for tonight’s tag match.

Nikki assures Eden there is no distraction in tonight’s match.  Daniel is family, and with Naomi telling us Tamina is family, since day one, Brie and Nikki have been family.  And after tonight’s match, Naomi will not have an excuse as to why she has never been, nor ever will be Diva’s Champion.

WWE Tough Enough is coming back, and we see auditions of the show.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler join us for a bonus match.

R-Truth Vs Stardust is now.

Truth picks up the win with What’s Up, pinning Stardust.

Stone Cold Podcast returns after Raw on June 1st, with Austin’s guest being Paul Heyman.

That will be fun.

Ryback Vs Bray Wyatt is set later tonight.  We see a video of that.

Tonight, Dolph Ziggler Vs Sheamus.

Sheamus is with Tom Phillips in the Social Media Lounge.

We start with a dumb question of what made Sheamus do that to his hair?

Sheamus has changed the last few months, and he now resonates fear.

What tag team partner, past or present would Sheamus choose?

Nobody, he would do it by himself.

Another stupid question Sheamus wouldn’t answer.

Is Sheamus afraid Ziggler would beat him again?

Sheamus was goofing around the last time, tonight he is serious.  And Ziggler would be lucky if he lasted 15 seconds.

Next, it’s The Meta Powers (Curtis Axel and Damien Sandow) will face The Ascension.

This Wednesday, which I will see on Thursday is NXT Takeover:  Unstoppable.

The Meta Powers Vs The Ascension is now.

The Ascension wins the match, with Fall of Man.  Viktor pins Axelmania, brother.

Fatal 4-Way video is playing now.

Payback is now.

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

Sheamus Vs Dolph Ziggler kicks things off.

Sheamus defeats a very bloody Dolph Ziggler with a Brogue Kick.  The two collided heads, and it cost Ziggler the match.

Kane is on the phone, and we see Rollins interrupt him.

This is a big night for the two of them, and he just wants them to squash their beef.

Kane reminds him of the times Rollins has gone behind Kane’s back, since Wrestlemania.

Kane reminds Seth that while he loses his job, maybe Seth losing the title would make Rollins realize what it’s like to be champion.  He has reminded Rollins he doesn’t need this job, so perhaps he will just watch on, as Seth loses the title at the grip.  Kane hasn’t decided what he’s going to do, but when he does, Seth will be the first to know.

Let Seth be crystal clear, if Kane does anything to cost Seth’s title, then losing his job will be the least of his concerns.

Kane doesn’t buy it, especially when J & J Security step in.

NXT Takeover:  Unstoppable is this Wednesday.

Tag Title match is up now.  The New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro.

Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles is in the house.

We all need to be positive, and Big E asks Adam isn’t he sick that the Orioles haven’t won a World Series in 32 years.

Baltimore doesn’t have to be losers all of their life.  Just clap along, and you can change.

New Day Sucks….

Tag match is up now, in a 2 out of 3 Falls match.

Kidd and Cesaro win the first fall when we see the combination of Cesaro Swing and a Tyson Kick, pinning Kofi.

New Day wins when they use Big E’s power, and Kofi’s finesse.  The two falls are 1 apiece.

The New Day wins when Xavier Woods, posing as Kofi rolled up Cesaro to steal the victory.

A fun match here.

Byron Saxton has a moment with Ryback before his match with Bray Wyatt.

Bray is trying to work on Ryback’s mind, to doubt his skills.  But it’s not working, Ryback doesn’t fear Wyatt.  Tonight, the eater of words gets eaten.

Feed Me More.

Ryback Vs Bray Wyatt is now.

Bray picks up the much-needed victory when he worked on Ryback’s ribs throughout the match, a turnbuckle was exposed, Bray shoved him into that and hits Sister Abigail for the win.

3 good matches so far tonight.

Stone Cold Podcast returns on Monday, June 1st with Austin’s guest being Paul Heyman.

John Cena Vs Rusev in an I Quit match is now.

Cena wins the match when he choked Rusev with a ring rope, and was yelling Bulgarian, but Lana screamed he said yes.

We had Rusev hit an Accolade, and Cena pass out, but Rusev threw water over Cena and John leaped up.

Just a bad, and sad predictable ending here.

WWE Payback panel speak.

Earlier tonight, The Ascension defeated The Meta-Powers.

The New Day are celebrating their win backstage by drinking milk, which is brilliant.

Byron is with them backstage.

They are role models, they do not spit, they do not curse, and most importantly they do not complain.

They will face any team.

Byron informs them at Elimination Chamber, they will have to defend their Tag Titles in an Elimination Chamber match.

Big E. spits, Xavier cursed, and Kofi complained.

It’s a new day.

Divas tag team match now with The Bellas Vs Naomi and Tamina.

Naomi and Tamina win the match when Tamina took out Brie, and Naomi pinned Nikki.

Not much of a match here.

Lana is backstage with an irate Rusev.

I think he is upset, he orders Lana to leave.

We see footage now from last Monday night, when Daniel Bryan forfeited the Intercontinental Title.

We find out who is the new IC Champion with an Elimination Chamber match in 2 weeks.

Neville Vs King Barrett is now.

Barrett loses on purpose with a countout, after Neville ignited some offense.

3 bad endings in a row doesn’t help the end of this PPV.

Barrett attacks Neville with a Bull Hammer at the end of the match.

Neville returns the favor on Barrett and hits a Red Arrow for good measure.

WWE Tough Enough is returning on my Birthday, June 23rd.

Seth Rollins is ready for his match, when Kane runs into him.  He wishes Seth good luck.

Our main event is now.  Fatal 4-way for WWE World Title.  Seth Rollins Vs Dean Ambrose Vs Randy Orton Vs Roman Reigns.

Seth Rollins retained his title in an incredible match.  Kane assisted Rollins here, prevented Orton from giving Reigns a RKO, and Seth pins Orton with a Pedigree, of all things.

The moment of the night was for one moment, The Shield reunited when all three gave Orton a Triple Powerbomb.  But that changed, when Ambrose and Reigns took care of Rollins by putting he and Kane through a table, with a Double Powerbomb.

After the match, HHH came out and showed his support for Rollins, and the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The first three matches were fantastic, the middle of the show slowed the PPV, but the main event, as it should be was the match of the night.

With Elimination Chamber set for 2 weeks, the plans will be set in motion tomorrow night on Raw.  But phase one of the 3 major shows this month is over with, and it was a lot of fun to watch.

I completely hated the finish to Cena vs Rusev.  It was predictable, and I just think Rusev’s career might be done, he hasn’t won in 3 PPVs now.  The once “invincible” has become vincible.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send it to me, and I will talk to you tomorrow night on Raw.

Impact Wrestling 5/15/15….Hardcore Wars

Tonight, Team Angle Vs Team Young in a Hardcore War.

Impact Wrestling starts now.

Here comes the World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle, and Chris Melendez.

Mike Tenay returns to the announce table, with Josh Matthews.

Kurt tells us he went to war with Eric Young last week.  He decided to side with BDC, and it blew up in his face.  Eric has his backup, but so does Kurt.

Chris Melendez is one, a decorated American Hero.  Kurt won medals for his country, but Chris put his life on the line for his country.  He would be honored if Chris accepts to be a part of his team.

He also asks for The Rising to come out.

These guys stand up for what they believe in, the love of wrestling.  We love wrestling, these fans love wrestling.  BDC is like “cancer” spreading into this company, but Kurt defends his title every week for this company.

Drew Galloway tell Kurt he doesn’t need to thank them, he is Kurt Freaking Angle.  He represents wrestling, and is a part of The Rising.  Whoever holds the World Title is the best.

But Kurt, there will come a day when they go one on one for the title.  Drew wants to be the best wrestler in the world, and when they face for the title, Drew will win.

Kurt will do battle with him anytime.

Here comes Eric Young.

He earned that shot last week, but special guest referee, Bully Ray.  Melendez, The Rising stood in his way, and they screwed him.

And this is why Eric Young is the Number One Contender to the World Title.  Eric is the best, he is going to be the World Champion.

Angle tells him he tried to bring out the real Eric Young, but he chose to side with BDC, and when that happened, it bit him in the ass.

Eric won’t quit until he is the champ.

He isn’t going to quit.  He isn’t going to quit.

Kurt agrees Eric Young is the Number One Contender, but it will be his stipulation.  They will face off in an I Quit match.

These four men are a part of his team tonight.

Eric calls them losers, and he doesn’t care about them.  He only cares about his team.

BDC attack them all from behind.

Here comes Bobby Lashley.

“The Destroyer” takes out EY with a spear.

The last member of Team Angle is “The Destroyer” Lashley.

Team Angle Vs Team Young in a Hardcore War, tonight.

Also tonight, The Dirty Heels Vs The Wolves in match one of best of 5 series.

But next, Brooke and Rebel Vs The Dollhouse.

The Dollhouse win in easy fashion with double teaming kicks, with Jade pinning Rebel.

Taryn Terrell is on the mic.

The Dollhouse proved that not everything is fun and games with The Dollhouse.  Gail Kim will find out too later tonight, when Taryn reveals what “playtime” is like with her family.

Earlier tonight, Team Angle added Lashley to tonight’s Hardcore Wars.  What will BDC do?

Backstage, MVP confirmed Homicide won’t be able to wrestle.  Eric tells them he has a backup plan, who is crazier than Eric himself.

Ladies and gentlemen, EC3…..

Trouble!!

Trouble!!

Trouble!!

EC3 isn’t even in the Top 5 this week, that’s a crime.

On this appellate, EC3 wears a button, that represents the majority.  EC3 2015 for World Champ.  Ethan has tried to stay conservative with his words, he tried to be liberal with his fists, but this top 5 list is a big pile of red, white, and blue bullcrap.

Last week, EC3 defeated a man in his own match, that is number 3 this week.  The Number One Contender lost last week.  Explain that to EC3.  A conspiracy indeed, because in the political world, a mind is a landscape.  EC3 is determined to find out the answers, so Obama, red phone is ringing, because EC3 demands the truth.

Mr. Anderson….

Anderson is bringing a chair.

Anderson wants some truth too.

Listen Ken, EC3 already defeated Anderson, so with his rich mouth, and these poor people’s eyes, EC3 is done with Anderson.

Anderson tells EC3 that he already had it cleared if he beats Tyrus tonight, he gets EC3 another time.

Ethan isn’t interested, and Anderson calls Tyrus Ethan’s bitch.

Those are fighting words, and we have our match.

Anderson wins with a Mic Check.  He gets the rematch with EC3.

Impact Wrestling is moving to Wednesdays, starting on June 3rd.

Still to come tonight is The Wolves Vs The Dirty Heels, match one of the Best of five Series.

Sneak-peak of BBQ Pitmasters, starting this May 25th.

Last Friday night, we see James Storm carrying a Mother’s Day gift for Mickie James, and Magnus knocked a guitar over Storm’s head.

Magnus comes to the ring.

He will never apologize to nailing James Storm over the head with a guitar, he will do it a million more times, because he is full of crap and the fans know it too.

The fans are booing here.

Magnus wants Storm, but we get Abyss instead.

Magnus last week attacked his leader, THE leader of The Revolution.  Tonight, Magnus will realize there are consequences of his action and Abyss will hurt him.

We get a brawl now.

No official match, just a fight. But it ends with Khoya and Manik helping Abyss and Abyss nails a Black Hole Slam.

The Dirty Heels Vs The Wolves, first match of the Best of Five Series, starts now.

The Wolves steal match one with a rollup, seeing Richards pin Roode.

Backstage, The Rising are in this together. But Kurt only offered 2 spots. Drew chooses Micha. He assures Eli there will be plenty of more battles, but he will have to sit this one out tonight.

Eli isn’t sure, but he tells them to tear it up.

Kurt tells them this is one of the greatest teams he has ever assembled, but whoever Eric Young chooses, they will have to beat them tonight.

Taryn and The Dollhouse have some pillow talk. While Gail Kim was playing wrestler, she had a talk with Gail’s new step-daughters. And she has a sneak peek for Robert later tonight. Something she will share, next.

Earlier tonight, The Revolution attacked Magnus, and Storm is not happy about this. It has nothing to do with them, and he never asked them to do this. Do not let it happen, again.

The Dollhouse are out now.

Taryn tells them this is their house….The Dollhouse. This is Taryn’s time, and will prove she is the ruler of The Knockouts.

But speaking of playtime, we see pictures of Taryn with Gail’s step-daughters, but first we will see what Taryn will wear for Robert, and she shows off what she will wear.

And here comes Gail Kim. Gail tells Taryn she crossed the line. Marti tells her they were just playing, and she is ruining their time. Marti asks Gail if she wants a bite of her sucker. Gail tells Marti to stay out of her business, and if Taryn wants to prove she is the best Knockout champion, then settle it in the ring.

Taryn tells Gail there is no time for that, and in due time, Robert will know she is the better woman too.

Those are fighting words, as Gail takes care of all three ladies.

I guess The Bro-man’s broke up, I say that because we now will see Jesse Godderz Vs Robbie E.

Robbie pinned Jesse with a rollup in very quick fashion.

Jesse wasn’t ready, and nobody wants to see a 5-second match. Let’s restart the match.

Robbie agrees.

Robbie wins again in quick fashion with a rollup.

Jesse wasn’t ready, his tights weren’t even tied. Let’s do this again, winner takes all.

Robbie agrees, and the match is set again.

Robbie wins again, with another rollup. Jesse put up a bigger fight here, but Jesse is still not amused.

Now Jesse attacks him with the mic.

Jesse throws Robbie out of the ring. “Mr. Pectacular” is back.

Jesse tells Robbie he is the better Bro-man, and takes a chair around Robbie’s neck and flings him to the pole.

Backstage pep talk from both men. Eric Young’s 5th man is here, but we won’t see it now.

Hardcore War is next.

Anderson wants Tyrus in a cage, because it needs to be Anderson Vs EC3, one on one. Mr. Anderson will see Tyrus and EC3 later.

Hardcore War is up now. Team Angle Vs Team Young.

Lo-Ki kicks off for Team Young, and Drew Galloway begins for Team Angle.

This is basically a Lethal Lockdown match, without a steel cage.

Bram is a part of Team Young.

Team Young wins when Eric nails Melendez with a Piledriver.

After the match, he takes off Chris’ prosthetic knee, and Kurt tries to stop him, but Eric nails Kurt with it, and applies the Boston Crab, shocking out Kurt to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another strong show, highlighted by Dirty Heels Vs The Wolves, and of course Hardcore War match. But EC3 is right, the Number One Contender is a man who lost last week.

And that is a problem with wrestling right now, wins and losses don’t mean much. You lose a title match, you’re STILL in line for a title show, next. Just one of the irritated things.

Not much tonight from Storm, Mickie, and Magnus, but enough for me to want to see more.

I hope Eli not being chosen isn’t a sign of The Rising breaking up, after they just started.

Not a fan of The Dollhouse right now, the wrestlers were able to showcase their talents, and that’s good, but the gimmick I am not into right now.

I guess Impact is moving to Wednesday again, I guess the ratings will rise a bit? Maybe? Maybe?

What were your thoughts of the show? Send them to me. No show next week, for Memorial Day weekend, instead we get an encore presentation of Slammiversary 2014.

WWE Monday Night Raw 5/11/15…The Authority Are Back

We are 6 days away from Payback, live in Cincinnati, Ohio.  We see a limo enter the building, and it’s HHH.

The Game is back!!

And we kick the show off with HHH coming to the ring.  He is telling us that Daddy is home, and he wants to clear things up with Kane and Seth Rollins.

Here they come.

Seth Rollins comes out to assure HHH he is on the same page with him.  The crowd wants Cincinnati’s own Dean Ambrose.

Seth can’t function at the top of his game when a 7 foot “cancer” is trying to stop him along the way.  Perhaps he is jealous, because Rollins is the man, and Kane has never been the man.  Seth feels Kane is trying to assure Rollins loses his WWE Championship.

A few weeks ago in a WWE App vote, he gave the power to all of these people to vote in that his next title defense is a Triple Threat.  Then last week, he added Dean Ambrose into the title picture, and now it’s a Fatal 4-Way match.

Rollins doesn’t feel Kane is suited to be Director of Operations anymore.  Seth understands their history, but maybe its time to take the “old dog” in the back and put him out of his misery.

Here comes Kane.

Kane thinks that he needs to give Seth a Chokeslam, and the two start to fight.

HHH states that Kane needs to be on the same page here.  He understands that sometimes Rollins needs to be punched in the face, but he knows Kane won’t do that.  If Rollins doesn’t leave Payback as WWE Champion, maybe his services won’t be needed.

Kane is disappointed by that, because he feels Seth needs to be viscerated.

The two start to fight again, and HHH makes this clear Kane needs to let him know now, maybe this is the part where they amicably part ways.

Kane doesn’t say anything, which makes HHH believe they are on the same page.

All four men will be in the ring competing tonight.  He needs to know Kane is invested in this, so he will face Roman Reigns.  Seth Rollins will face Randy Orton.

Oh boy, Jamie talks now.

Jamie explains HHH has been gone for a long time, while Rollins has been competing every night.

HHH tells Mercury and Noble they need to be in a match, against Dean Ambrose now.

He orders Kane and Rollins to follow him out of the ring.

Ambrose comes out.

J & J Security try their best, but Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds, and the match ends.

Daniel Bryan will be here tonight, to address his health and the Intercontinental Title.

Sheamus joins us for commentary in our next match.  Dolph Ziggler Vs King Barrett.

At Payback, it will be Ziggler Vs Sheamus, again.  One on one.

Barrett tells us this Sunday, he will face off against Neville.  And he tells Ziggler he will become a Royal ass-kisser when he gets done with him.

Sheamus distracts Ziggler long enough for King Barrett to land a Bull Hammer.

After the match, Sheamus degrades Ziggler andslaps him around, but Ziggler fights back, only to be hit with a Brogue Kick.

Tonight, we will see Reigns Vs Kane, and Rollins Vs Orton.

Luke Harper comes out now, with Erick Rowan.  The team reunites.  But now, it’s Rowan Vs Fandango.

Rowan wins in 37 seconds.  The Brothers are back in WWE.

John Cena’s United States Open Challenge is next.

Who cares about what Cena has to say.  We know he is an I Quit match against Rusev this Sunday.  So who will he face?

Neville.

Neville had Cena beat with a Red Arrow, but Rusev interferred, and cost the DQ finish.  But Neville did technically win.

Now, Accolade time.

Cena passes out.

We Want Lana chants, but Rusev holds the United States Title, while the Russian flag drops down.

WWE Network is free in the month of May.

Still to come tonight, Orton Vs Rollins.

But next, Kane Vs Reigns.

The match ends in a No Contest, when Reigns takes Kane out with a spear through the announce table.

No match takes place.

Daniel Bryan will address his health and IC Title tonight.

Divas time now with Brie Bella Vs Tamina.

Tamina pins Brie after a vicious kick to the head.

Tonight, our main event is Orton Vs Rollins.

Earlier tonight, during the Raw Pre-Show, we had Axelmania Vs Sandow-Mania.

The match is on now.

Macho Mandow Vs Axelmania, now.

Here comes The Ascension.

They aren’t impressed with this.

Oh, how Ascension has failed in WWE.

We now have Axelmania do the big legdrop.  And Mandow hits the big elbow, or at least Conor stops him.

This will be our Payback Kick-off match.

Switching gears, Daniel Bryan will speak, next.

More Tough Enough videos.

Debut is on June 23rd.

Here comes Daniel Bryan, and I hope he isn’t going to say what I think he will say.

The last couple of weeks, Daniel has been in and out of doctors, and he has had some down time.  He doesn’t do well with down time.  He needs to be out where there is excitement, some energy.

Daniel needed to be back here, behind the curtain, so he can come out here and be a reaction like this.  It’s been years that the fans have treated better for Daniel as anyone in the back that has treated him.  Which is why it was crushing last year, when Stephanie vacated Daniel’s WWE World Title.  He felt like he let us down.  They didn’t give Daniel an opportunity, the fans did that.  But the hard thing for Daniel to admit was Stephanie was right to do it.  Because nobody knew how long Daniel was out, he was hurt and couldn’t defend the WWE World Title.  We needed a fighting champion, which is why he asked to come out here tonight.

Daniel had an MRI last week, they didn’t know how long he will be out.  They said maybe weeks, maybe months.  He might not even be able to wrestle again.  But despite that uncertainity, he knows what needs to happen to this IC Championship.  We deserve Wade Barrett, we deserve Dolph Ziggler.  We deserve Dean Ambrose fighting for this championship.  This title needs to be in this ring, and this is where he will leave it.  Tonight, Daniel officially relinquishes this IC Championship.

The fans are chanting Thank You Daniel, and they have it wrong.  For everything they have done for him, he has one thing to say….thank you.

He puts the title in the ring, and leaves.

Daniel gives us one more yes chant at the top of the ramp.  Will he ever come back?

Cole, JBL, and Booker talk about Daniel’s legacy.

We go from sadness to a New Day.

Xavier tells us to not shine on the negativity, shine on the positivity, because it’s a new day.

The chants do not work, New Day Sucks.

Kofi tells us it’s a new day for a second chance, and Big E. tell us Pete Rose does not deserve a second chance.

But Kofi tell us Kidd and Cesaro will get a second chance at Payback when they compete for a 2 out of 3 falls match.

Xavier gives the people of Cincinnati another chance at New Day rocks.

It does not work.

Big E. Vs Cesaro, now.

Cesaro picks up the win with a rollup, after Kidd took care of Xavier Woods.

This Sunday at Payback, WWE Tag Titles are on the line with Cesaro and Kidd Vs The New Day.

Breaking news, we will see The Elimination Chamber PPV, on Sunday, May 31st.  Exclusively on WWE Network.

Tonight, Orton Vs Rollins.

Now Titus and Darren Young give us a New Age Outlaws impression.

Here comes “The New Face of Fear”, Bray Wyatt.

Bray feels sorry for all of us.  He wishes he can reach out, and fix everything.  Wake us up, and make everything better, but fear is all around us.  And if you need proof, all you have to do is open up a newspaper, and turn on a TV and see it before your eyes.  Fear on a crumbling economy that will never stop.  You have this idea that if you can do something, you make it all stop.  Ryback has a major influence on us.  Here is a guy who shattered his ankle into a million pieces.  He has a doctor telling him he is afraid he can never wrestle again.  But a Ryback doesn’t listen to that, a Ryback fights again.  His hero.  But along came a spider.  Ryback has gone toe to toe with faith, and evened the odds.  But he has never seen a new face of fear before.  And now Ryback is saying why me?  It’s simple, because he was in Bray’s way.

Hey kids, you want Wyatt to tell us something our parents will never tell us?  Sometimes, the good guy doesn’t win.

Feed Me More….

Ryback comes out, and we have a fight.

Ryback takes care of Wyatt, and Ryback is ready for this Sunday.

Feed Me More.

Orton Vs Rollins is next.

Rollins loses by DQ when J & J Security come out and help Rollins.  But here comes Kane, with a chair.  And then we see Reigns and Ambrose come out.

Rollins is left by himself, when J & J Security bail.

Rollins is hit by a Dirty Deeds.

Kane does not move.

Then Reigns nails a spear, on Rollins.

Kane does not move.

Orton hits a RKO.

Kane does not move.

But Reigns hits a spear on Orton, and Ambrose follows suit on his brother with Dirty Deeds on Reigns.

Cincinnati’s own Dean Ambrose is left standing tall to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

They treated this like a big show, and top to bottom, Raw delivered.  Highlighted by some sad news however, that Daniel Bryan vacated the IC Title.

Question is where do we go from here?

Like I said last week, I like the added Fatal 4-Way match, but everything else is Extreme Rules, more or less.

I am not feeling the Bray Wyatt-Ryback feud though.  Both men need the win, but who gets it?

Where does Kane fit in this landscape?

And we have another big PPV in just 2 weeks after this.  So how do we get there?

I guess we will tune in and find out.  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.

Impact Wrestling Live 5/8/15…Eric Young Vs Kurt Angle

Eric Young begins the show inside the ring, demanding who the special guest referee will be for tonight’s big World Title match.

Enter Bully Ray.

Do you know who I am?

He’s Bully Ray, and he is the special guest referee for tonight’s World Title match.

Impact is live, tonight.

Tonight, feuds will be coming to a halt.  EC3 Vs Mr. Anderson.  The BDC Vs The Rising.  Kurt Angle Vs Eric Young.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Ladies and gentlemen, EC3.

Trouble….Trouble….Trouble.

EC3 is shaking hands with his voters, and taking picture.  Vote EC3 for future TNA World Champion.

He is on the mic, and feels the excitement tonight.  Something he has been clamoring for, something we have been clamoring for…#EC3WorldChamp

He has it on good authority the voters have spoken, and we will have a good old fashioned game of Arm Wrestling.

Chants of You Can’t Wrestle….Yes He Can are going on.

God Bless EC3.

Mr. Anderson wants the results, and 85% voted for a Falls Count Anywhere Match.

Why not arm wrestling?

Match is now.

EC3 picks up the win with some help from Tyrus.

EC3 is still undefeated.

Tonight, Eric Young Vs Kurt Angle.

Kurt Angle welcomes Bully Ray back.  He just wants Bully’s word that he will call it down the middle.  Bully responds asking him if he knows who he is.

He never said he would call it down the middle.

Gail Kim approaches Awesome Kong.  They may not be friends, but they need to be in business together, to get Taryn.  Is she in?  Kong nods her head.,

The Dollhouse tonight, against Gail Kim and Awesome Kong.

Beat Down Clan come out to the ring, with masks.

MVP has a live mic, which could make us feel uncomfortable.  He has this mask for Homicide.  He’s not here tonight, because someone attacked him in a New York night club, and needs shoulder surgery.

He’s not saying who was responsible for this, but it smells like something The Rising would do.  Yet, the fans cheer for them, and boo them.  When the American government needed Iraqi oil, they just take it.  Yet when they take the X-Division Title, we call them thugs.  He dropped the N-word, that was bleeped.  But MVP tells Drew Galloway that if he wants to act like a thug, he will beat down them.

The Rising come out to the ring.

Drew understands why MVP being upset, one of his boys was jumped.  But the reality of this is the streets isn’t Drew’s playground, the ring is his playground.  But let’s be honest, the man’s name is Homicide, not exactly the nicest name, so anyone could have jumped him.  Maybe MVP needs to look at his own boys.  He saw the look Kenny King had when he touched his title, where was he last night?

MVP isn’t hearing about that.  MVP doesn’t give a damn about wrestling, he cares about money.  The lifestyle it brings with it.  He was supposed to be the TNA World Champion, but Drew had to come out, and stop it.  So come on out here, and get the beat down.

Drew suggest we have a one on one match against MVP.

The fight continues, next.

Drew Galloway wins the match with a Future Shock DDT, and Eric Young swings a chairshot to Drew, and take out The Rising.

Eric makes it clear, MVP owes Eric.

Tonight, Eric Young Vs Kurt Angle.

James Storm has a special gift for a “special” friend.

Here comes James Storm.

James can come out here, and be tough, or beating someone up, or drink a beer.  But he wants to shift the spotlight to someone who truly deserves it.

He brings Mickie James out to the ring.

Hardcore Country.

He knows, just like everyone else knows Mickie is transitioning herself to motherhood.  If his mom hadn’t taught him from right to wrong, God Bless mothers.

Mickie promised one more match, and in due time, Mickie will give her fans one more time.  But another thing important to Mickie is her country music.

Storm can say she is a great singer, she is a legendary in-ring performer.  But he’s not.  She is an amazing singer, an amazing in-ring performer, and an amazing friend.

Open the gift.

He gave Mickie a guitar.

On behalf of the wrestling fans, James just wants to say thank you.

James had the guitar tuned up, and now he wants a giant selfie with Mickie James.

Here comes Magnus.

He has a gift for Magnus too, his gladiator helmet from when he started.

Magnus is offended by this, and he shoves James.

Storm is just playing around, and we see Magnus taking Mickie away.

James has one more gift for his son, Donavan.  A teddy bear, from his good old Uncle James.

This sets Magnus on fire, and he takes the guitar, and nails Storm with it.

Storm smiles when he comes through.

Knockout tag match is next.  The Dollhouse Vs Gail Kim and Awesome Kong.

Earlier tonight, Bully Ray reveals to be the special guest ref in tonight’s World Title match with Angle Vs Young.

BDC want answers from Young.  He wants BDC to watch Eric’s back, they aren’t friends, but they are good business partners.  The last time they worked together, they took the TNA World Title away from Bobby Roode, now they can take the title away from Kurt Angle.  And when Eric Young becomes World Champion, they become World Champion.

Think it over.

We now see footage when Gail Kim took part of her husband Robert Irvine on his cooking show, Taryn Terrell showed up backstage.

Knockout tag match is up now.

The Dollhouse Vs Kong and Gail Kim.

Dollhouse wins when Taryn rolls up Gail, after Marty distracted Gail long enough.

But now Marty is caught between Gail and Kong.  Eat Defeat….Implant Buster.

Gail and Kong are on the same page, now.

The Hardys won the Tag Team Titles.  But Jeff Hardy broke his leg in a motorcycle stunt gone wrong.

What will Matt do with the Tag Team Titles?  We find out, next.

Earlier tonight, we see Magnus nailing James Storm with a guitar.

Mickie James tells Magnus that he has to keep his temper in check.  He tells her that James disrespected Magnus, but Mickie tells him now Magnus disrespected her.

Matt Hardy is in the ring, with JB.

Jeff Hardy is in pain, and he is not a character at home, he truly is the “Charismatic Enigma”, and he has learned to deal with it.

A few weeks ago, The Hardys were on top of the world, but now Matt has no choice other than vacate the Tag Titles.  And now, it’s time for Matt to go home and figure out where he goes from here.

Austin Aries and Bobby Roode come out, shake Matt’s hand as he goes to the back.

Austin tells Eric that he hasn’t forgotten what he did, but he promised Kurt Angle not to interfere when he takes care of EY, but after that, he will get his chance.

Now onto other titles.

It seems like the Tag Titles are cursed, the last two times they have been forfeited.  While some may say that is a tough break, Austin sees this as an opportunity.  We see two guys who have been Tag Team Champions together, and they are the best team.

Bobby brings up these titles deserve to be defended, and do that as the best Tag Team the world has seen, Roode and Aries together.

Davey Richards shows up.

Davey has an issue with that, because The Wolves have been the most dominant tag team in the last 2 years.  And they deserve to be Tag Champs.

Austin tells Davey he has known him for years, and while he respects what they have done, he is by himself.

Davey tells Austin Wolves hunt in pack, and welcomes his brother, and partner, Eddie Edwards.

As of 12 noon, Eddie has been cleared to compete.  The Dirty Heels say they are the best team, but Eddie and Davey know they are the best team, and prove it every day.

So, let’s stop the talking, let’s have a match, and find out who is the best.  But not just any match, no excuses….a best of five series.

You want it, Roode asks, the fans want it, they got it.

All four men shake hands.

Tonight, Angle Vs Young for the World Title.

Matt Hardy starts walking away, but Drew Galloway intervenes.  He tells Hardy he has a tremendous amount of respect for him, and they have many things in common, such as they never back away from a fight.

Angelina Love doesn’t care about the Bromans breaking up, she doesn’t care about Gail Kim and Awesome Kong teaming up.  She wants to talk about herself, a record-setting 6-time Knockout Champion, and the one true Beautiful Person left.

We see Velvet Sky showing up, saying nothing, heads to the ring.

Angelina tells her she had too much going on to even give Velvet a call.  But she isn’t mad at her.  Angelina tries to hug Velvet, but she doesn’t hug back.

Angelina screams at Velvet to say something, and we see a spear.

The two start to fight, and officials break them up.  Velvet has no reaction.

Young Vs Angle video is being shown.

Eric Young doesn’t trust anyone, and tells Bully he wants to know if he will screw Eric of his title.  Bully assures EY he wants to see the two men tear each other up, he doesn’t care.  He will call it right down the middle.

Eric Young Vs Kurt Angle, for the World Title, with Bully Ray as special ref is now.

Kurt wins with a leg grapevine, making Eric Young tap out.

We had BDC come out, The Rising come out, Chris Melendez came out, Eric Young attacked Bully Ray, but at the end of the day, Bully raised the arm of Kurt and we end the show with the champion retaining his title.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a very good show tonight, TNA knew they had a live show to work with, and they certainly gave us matches, and storylines to continue.

The idea of Best of Five series matches with The Wolves Vs Dirty Heels is certainly intriguing, to say the least.  Even though it was due to bad circumstances, with Jeff being hurt, Eddie Edwards coming back was a nice touch.

Let’s see where this goes.

I also liked Velvet Sky returning, not saying a word, and just went after Angelina Love.  The potential of Matt Hardy joining The Rising, or maybe even feuding with Drew Galloway has promise.

We also saw Kong and Gail teaming together, and from the looks of it, this won’t be the last time.

EC3 is a future TNA World Champion, and that’s all we need to know about that.

Welcome back to TNA Bully Ray.  We missed you.

And Angle Vs Young was okay, but where does Kurt go next?

Overall, a good show that is showing promise towards the road to Slammiversary.  What were your thoughts?  Send them to me.

WWE Monday Night Raw 5/4/15…We Are In Bizarro World

No music intro, we hear Michael Cole’s voice.  In Montreal, Canada tonight, which means the fans will be a part of the show.

Randy Orton kicks off the show.

Payback is a fitting name for a PPV, because payback is what he is giving Seth Rollins in 13 days.  The fans voted him in a Triple Threat match for the WWE World Heavyweight Title.  And now Roman Reigns is added to the mix, but that is not his problem, because he is walking out of Payback the WWE World Heavyweight Title, and there is nothing Roman Reigns can do about it.

Enter Roman Reigns.

If anyone is getting payback on Seth Rollins, its Roman Reigns.

The Montreal fans are chanting RKO.

So will Orton just stand in the corner and watch Reigns get payback on Seth Rollins.

Reigns doesn’t care what Orton will do, just stay out of his way.

I guess Reigns has forgotten who he is.

Orton is a 12-time World Heavyweight Champion, he has wrestled in 12 straight Wrestlemanias.  How many title reigns does Roman have?  How many Wrestlemanias has Roman wrestled?  3.  So perhaps he should remember that.

Reigns brings up he beat Orton at Summerslam, and he would love to beat him again.

Here come The New Day.

Xavier reminds the two men that The New Day are the only champions at ringside.  And nobody cares about their Montreal boo-hoo.  They are so negative, but look at them, they are positive.  Because it’s a new day.

Kofi tells them it truly is a new day, so let’s forget about the past.

Big E. tells Reigns that nobody cares if Roman can’t win the big one.  And Randy, he can’t help it if Roman owns him so much, he has him on speed dial.

It’s time to do the clap.

They won’t do it.  But Kane has ordered them to face The New Day in a 3-on-2 Handicap match, now.

Reigns “accidentally” spears Orton, and Kofi pins Randy for the win.

Kane shows up on the ramp.

There is no shame in losing to the WWE Tag Team Champions.  If their evening was ending, there would be no shame in it, but their evening hasn’t ended.  They aren’t getting along, and Kane wants to exploit that.  Orton will face Reigns, one on one.  Because that is what’s best for business.

We come to the back, New Day are celebrating, and Kane just rolls his eyes, which is funny.

Kane runs into Rollins.

What he did won’t change anything.  The Authority will return, and will punish Kane for what he has been doing.

Kane made those matches, because that is what’s for business.  Which brings to Rollins.  He can’t give Seth the night off.  Last week’s main event on Smackdown was marred due to interference, so we will have Seth Vs Dean Ambrose.  And J & J Security is banned tonight.

Rollins reminds Kane he was the interference last week, and all Dean wants to do is hurt Rollins.

Kane can make Rollins tied up to the ring post, or tied behind one back.  Say one word, and he can make that happen.

Kane dares Rollins to say it, but he walks away.

Renee Young is in the ring, bringing out Ryback.

Feed Me More!!

Last week, Ryback had a surprise…Bray Wyatt attacked Ryback.

Renee asks Ryback if he knew why Bray attacked him both nights last week.  Ryback doesn’t know, but Bray made a mistake.  Ryback knows about adversity.

The crowd chanted for Goldberg, and Ryback answered back.

Ryback had 2 severe injuries and doctors told him he would never wrestle.  Bray, Ryback had to answer fear his entire life.  He takes fear, and negativity, and eats it.  He wakes up hungry to succeed, hungry to be a hero to the kids in attendance, and kids watching on TV.  He does this for the fans, and everytime they chant Feed Me More, it motivates him.  It’s about taking chances, facing fears, and going through adversity.  Bray woke up Ryback, and talking time is done.  It;s feeding time.

Bray shows up on the screen now.

You paint yourself as this untouchable force, but he can see the fear in his eyes.  Deathly afraid that people will see the facade.  He is afraid of fear, but people seek help, they seek guidance of a higher power.  Everything you love, everything you’re afraid to lose is all going to fade away.  In time, friend….so will you.

Run!!

Cesaro and Kidd are in the next match, set to face The Ascension.

Cesaro and Kidd win with a Cesaro Swing and a kick to the head by Tyson, pinning Viktor.

Seth Rollins walks to the ring.  Renee Young wants Seth’s reaction to his match.

There is no point to having this match, and second, Kane is a moron.

WWE 24 will air on WWE Network with Roman Reigns, after Raw.

Ambrose Vs Rollins is now.

Kane comes out, and he says that with Rollins bringing up there is no point to this match, if Ambrose wins, Dean will be added to the main event at Payback in a Fatal 4-Way match.

Rollins tells Kane he can’t do that, because the fans voted for a Triple Threat match.  Ambrose likes the idea, does the fans have issues with that stipulation.

Rollins doesn’t care what Ambrose is saying, and he doesn’t care what the Montreal fans are saying, because he doesn’t matter.

Match is on, now.

Ambrose wins the match with a rollup.  J & J Security come out, even though they were banned but this backfires.

The main event at Payback is now a Fatal 4-Way for the WWE World Title.

I loved this match.

It’s now Rollins Vs Orton Vs Reigns Vs Ambrose, at Payback for the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

We go back and see what happened earlier tonight.  The New Day defeated Orton and Reigns.

Tonight, it’s Orton Vs Reigns, one on one.

Moments ago, Ambrose defeated Rollins putting himself into the Fatal 4-Way at Payback.

Rollins is irate at Kane, blaming him for putting his match into a Fatal 4-Way.

Kane corrects him by saying the fans put this into a Fatal 4-Way and Rollins lost to Ambrose.  How about adding more people?  Kane wants to mold Rollins into the champion The Authority want him to be.  Kane has an idea.

Byron Saxton is with Lana.

He asks Lana how it feels to have The WWE Universe start to favor Lana.  Lana doesn’t know what Byron is talking about.

Fandango tells her she needs to feel the movement The WWE Universe is giving, by accepting her.

Rusev screams something at Lana.

Rusev Vs Fandango, next.

Lana is Fandangoing, which is glorious.

Rusev sends Lana out though.

Match is done, Accolade.

NXT will be featured on E:60, featured on ESPN.

WWE Tough Enough will return on June 23rd.

Entries are being shown now.

R-Truth Vs Stardust, now.

Stardust brought a bag, and it turned out it was plastic spiders.  Stardust wins with a rollup.

John Cena’s US Open Challenge is coming next.

A sneak peek of Roman Reigns’ special on WWE Network.

This Thursday night, we will have a Contract Signing of the Fatal 4-Way match at Payback, on Smackdown.

Cena comes out now.

The Montreal crowd loves him, it seems.  Okay, not really.

Cena says I Quit.  Those words have meaning.

Montreal crowd is digging this.

There are folks in Montreal who want to see Cena quit.  That he would walk away.  But we know him, we know he has dealt with this adversity for years.  Montreal knows whatever the hostility, whether you’re a critic, or an opponent, Cena never gives up.

So Cena faces Rusev in 2 weeks for the title, and if he quits, he doesn’t deserve a rematch.  But making Cena say I quit, is like Cena asking the fans to stop singing, it just won’t happen.  Saying I quit is testing a man’s will.

This is passion, the fans will say what they want, because they are passionate.  Rusev wants to fight Cena, he wants to win the title, but Cena is fighting for everything he stands for the last 10 years.  He asks the fans if they are up against the wall, someone puts a microphone to your face, asking you to quit, what is your answer?

No…

He goes to the crowd, and we all fight for what we believe in.  This is a city that knows tradition, and he is very proud.

So here is the sentence from a man who believes in the same, Cena is proud of the title and everything it stands for, and in 2 weeks, he will say the same thing….

The Champ Is Here.

On to the Cena United States Title Open Challenge.

We hear Bret Hart’s theme song.

Welcome Back Bret chants erupt.

Bret is here to introduce a great wrestler….

Enter Heath Slater.

The fans don’t like this idea.

Heath will not let his moment to become US Champion get stepped on, again.  Especially in Montreal, babay!!

Heath tells us he can speak french.

First, he gets RKO’d out of nowhere, then Rusev attacks Slater from behind, out of nowhere.  He is sick and tired of getting attacked out of nowhere.

Bret slaps Slater.

Bret wants to introduce Montreal’s very own, NXT’s own hottest superstar, Sami Zayn.

It’s Cena Vs Zayn….NOW!!

Cena wins in a tough match, defeating Zayn with a stunner and AA.  Sami appeared to injure his shoulder during the match, even dislocating it.  He still gutted it out, and made a very strong showing here.

I do love these open challenges.

In 2 weeks, at NXT Takeover:  Unstoppable, it will be Zayn Vs Kevin Owens for the NXT World Title.

Earlier tonight, New Day pins Orton and Reigns, when Reigns “accidentally” spears Orton.

Tonight, Orton Vs Reigns.

Next, Nikki Bella Vs Naomi, and we see New Day still celebrating their win.  Kofi and Xavier are lifting up Big E, in the back.

Now that was funny.

Renee is waiting for Sami Zayn, but New Day has other thoughts.

They were victorious earlier tonight.

New Day’s future looks bright.  Xavier will be featured on tomorrow’s E: 60.  Cesaro and Kidd intervene.  They admit the crowd is chanting New Day sucks.  And they appear to agree with that.

New Day isn’t pleased.

Divas action, is now.

Nikki Bella Vs Naomi.

Tamina is now aligned with Naomi, who both attack The Bellas.

Naomi tells them their rein as leader of the Divas Division is over.  This is what family is about.

Last Tuesday, Bad News Barrett became the King of the Ring, defeating Neville.

All Hail King Barrett.

It’s Barrett and Sheamus Vs Ziggler and Neville, next.

Barrett connects with a Bull Hammer, pinning Neville.

Tonight, immediately after Raw, WWE 24 will feature Roman Reigns.

Reigns Vs Orton is next.

The Authority come out before the match starts.  Jamie tells us he is the special ring announcer.  Joey is the special ring bell-ringer.  Kane is the special ring enforcer, and Seth Rollins is the special guest commentator.

Match starts now.

It ends with a no contest when The Authority takes over.  But here comes Dean Ambrose to even the odds a bit.  All 3 faces fight off The Authority, which ends with a spear by Reigns.  Then Orton hits a RKO on Reigns, and Ambrose nails Dirty Deeds on Orton to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A much better show than last week, and we changed the main event, which worked too, adding Ambrose into the mix.  He should be one of the favorites to win Money in the Bank, because he needs to get that big push.  Fans certainly love him, and we know he can wrestle and talk on the mic.

Zayn Vs Cena was very good, but now Zayn is getting a MRI, according to Joey Styles on his Twitter page.

Lana Fandagoing too was worth to see the show, and the MVP of the show had to be New Day.  They were corny, but very, very funny.

What was your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me.

WWE Monday Night Raw 4/27/15…King Of The Ring

Tonight, King of the Ring is back.  4 quarter-final matches will be set here, with the semi-finals and final matches will crown a new King of the Ring tomorrow night.

Raw is now.

8 men will be crowned King of the Ring, we are in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Seth Rollins comes out for his 20 minute promo here.

Finally, last night The Viper learned what the entire WWE Universe has known for a very long time….you can’t out-smart Seth Rollins.

He is the man who single-handedly built the most dominant faction in WWE history, in The Shield. He is also the man who single-handedly destroy it.

He also was the man who cashed in Money in the Bank briefcase at the opportunist time, at Wrestlemania and beat two men….Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.

He also had Randy Orton last night right where he wanted him.

Orton wanted Rollins all by himself, and he beat Randy all by himself.

Kane doesn’t like this.

Rollins had Orton beat in his mind, by banning a RKO.  And he beat him with his own move, a SKO.

But every great general needs great soldiers.  So let’s take a moment, and thank Kane.  For doing what was best for business, and be the crypt-keeper.

The crypt-keeper is a character from 1990s that nobody cares about, and he is Kane, the gatekeeper.

Kane is not offended by that, and says if it wasn’t for him, Randy Orton would be WWE World Champion, and instead of boasting about being champion, he would be whining about losing.  Kane would rather be the WWE’s version of the crypt-keeper, than WWE’s version of Justin Bieber.

Rollins tells Kane hs is just jealous because Seth is WWE Champion, and he can wrestle circles around him.

Here comes Randy Orton.

Randy wouldn’t be complaining, but with an official saying Seth cheated last night, this deserves a WWE World Title rematch.

Seth said he had his shot, and he blew it.

Randy isn’t talking to “Catwoman”, he is talking to Kane.

Kane says Randy has a point, but here comes Roman Reigns.

Seth wants to know why Roman is here, and Randy tells Seth he is missing his giant.  And he is missing his giant because he flipped a table on top of him, just like this.  And you can call him the last man standing.

Randy, no disrespect had his shot.  And since “Justin Bieber” has the WWE World Title, then Roman Reigns deserves a shot at the title.

So Roman won a match, congratulations.  But Randy and Roman seem to have a common denominator, they both lost to Rollins.  So….

Kane interrupts him, and says they both have a point.  So how about tonight, they settle their differences and show them the real power of The Authority.

A tag team match, right?

Kane will have the WWE Universe decide who the next title defense with Seth Rollins at Payback will be.

Next, King of the Ring tournament starts with Dolph Ziggler Vs Bad News Barrett.

Barrett wins the match with a Bull Hammer, when Sheamus came out and made fun of Ziggler kissing Sheamus’ ass.

I expect Ziggler to do the same thing to Sheamus, later tonight.

HHH isn’t here tonight, so our main event is Orton and Reigns Vs Rollins and Kane.

New Day is in action, next.

Xavier has the mic, and tell us they are the champions.  They want to thank every single one of their clappers.  The ones that clapped for their struggles, for their hard work.

And Xavier wants them to work on a new chant.  New Day Rocks, we still have New Day Sucks.

It’s Tyson Kidd Vs Big E. now.

Big E. steals the victory, with Xavier holding onto the ankle again.

Footage from Cena Vs Rusev last night is being shown.

At Payback in 3 weeks, it’s Cena Vs Rusev in an I Quit match.

Tonight, John Cena Open Challenge Match, for The United States Title.

Feed Me More….

Ryback is in action, next.

Ryback Vs Bo Dallas, now.

Shellshock, match is over.

Bray Wyatt shows up being Ryback.

Sister Abigail, and we have the spider walk.

Ryback is the one Bray was referring to as a failure.

Cena’s Open Challenge, is next.

Here comes The United States Champion, John Cena.

John will repeat his mic stuff, saying he won’t quit, he will beat Rusev once and for all, amke him quit.

Blah Blah Blah….let’s get on with the challenger.

It’s Heath Slater, oh boy.

Well, Rusev ruins those plans, because he attacks Heath Slater.

Lana comes out to the cheers of the fans.  Rusev orders her to leave the ringside area.

Look at these people John Cena, they are all quitters.  They have given up on their dreams a long time ago, they quit on themselves.  And Cena at Payback will be just like these stupid Americans.  You won’t be singing “God Bless America” together, you will be saying I Quit.

Russian flag pops up in front of Cena.

Kane is backstage, Rollins is not upset at Kane, he just needs to know what Kane means that the WWE Universe will decide Rollins’ next title defense.  He just beat Randy Orton last night, he beat Reigns at Wrestlemania.  Is Kane too stupid?  What would HHH and Steph do when he tells them.

Kane thought that Rollins was the man, but it seems he just wants to whine and complain.  So we will decide who Rollins’ opponent will be at Payback.  Either Orton, Reigns, or a Triple Threat match.

We will find out after their match, later tonight.

Our next match is the quarterfinal of King of the Ring tournament.

R-Truth Vs Stardust.

Truth wins with a lie detector.  Tomorrow night, Barrett Vs Truth.

Also tonight, Orton and Reigns Vs Kane and Rollins.

Voting is open now, for the main event of Payback.

It’s Fandango time, against Adam Rose.

Rosa Mendes gets her revenge posing as a Rosebud when Rose hits Party Fowl.

Rosa can’t believe he chose them over Rosa.  She found someone who treats her like the sweet flower she is.

Now they make out.

Moving on…

Switching gears, Daniel Bryan is not cleared by medical doctors.  Renee Young has an update from Daniel’s wife, Brie Bella.

Daniel loves WWE, and every day he is away from WWE, it kills him.  But the WWE cares so much about Daniel, and Daniel in turn cares about them.

Naomi attacks Brie and tells her nobody cares about Brie, or her husband.

Brie Bella Vs Naomi, now.

Naomi wins with an inside cradle.

Tonight, Reigns and Orton Vs Kane and Rollins.

King of the Ring tournament match, Dean Ambrose Vs Sheamus.

Ambrose is DQ’d when Ziggler attacked Sheamus so he advances, and will face the winner of Harper Vs Neville.

Also tonight, Orton and Reigns Vs Kane and Rollins and we decide what the main event of Payback will be.

Damien Sandow is in the ring.

Allow him to beg for our indulgence, his name is Damien Sandow.  One thing is he will never lie to us.

3 1/2 years ago, he came into WWE wearing a blue bathrobe, and he tried to enlighten us.  Then, he was told he doesn’t entertain us enough.

He hasn’t lost his mind, he was trying to entertain us.  Remember Bret “The Hitman” Sanhart.  Or how about his Magneto moment.  Or Vince McSandow.  Then he had his Damien Mizdow moment.

He has to be honest, he lost alot of respect from his peers, but one thing he gained were alot of fans, and that means more to him and he thanks us for that.

You’re welcome.

Now, where does he go from here?  He’s not sure.

Enter Curtis Axel.

One thing Axel can’t stand is when someone tries to be someone else.  So Damien Sandow, whatcha going to do?

Now Sandow is mocking Axel.

Sandow takes care of Axel to the Elbow of Disdain.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, Tag Team Titles are on the line, New Day will face Kidd and Cesaro.

Bray Wyatt interrupts the fun, and he tells us that he knows him better than anyone.  Run!!

Tough Enough videos are being shown now.

Neville Vs Harper now, in the King of the Ring tournament.

Neville wins with Red Arrow, advancing in King of the Ring tournament.

Semi-Finals tomorrow night will be Barrett Vs Truth and Sheamus Vs Neville, along with the finals, exclusively on WWE Network, at 8:00.

Our main event, Reigns and Orton Vs Kane and Rollins is now.

Reigns and Orton win when Kane had enough, decking J & J Security, then decked Rollins, threw him back into the ring who was met with a Superman Punch and a RKO, for the win.

After the match, Kane showed us the results of the poll, and that gives us a Triple Threat match set for Payback.

Rollins was met with a Spear by Reigns, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This wasn’t a bad show, at times they seemed to drag things out.  But it gets people interested in King of the Ring tournament.  I have to think Bad News Barrett is the favorite right now.  I can’t see Sheamus beating Neville too, with Ziggler getting involved.

We also knew we’d have a Triple Threat match at Payback, even WWE knew that.  But here we go, does this mean Kane is finally stepping away from The Authority?  I hope Daniel Bryan is able to come back, because who wouldn’t want to see Team Hell No reunite?

I’ll be here tomorrow evening, giving you King of the Ring report.  Your thoughts on tonight’s show, send them here.

WWE Extreme Rules 4/26/15

Tonight, WWE goes Extreme.  Randy Orton Vs Seth Rollins headlines the PPV, inside a steel cage.  We will also see John Cena Vs Rusev in a Russian Chain Match.  Roman Reigns faces Big Show in a Last Man Standing match.  So much, and more.

But first, we have the kick-off show.

Here we go.

We are in Chicago. Renee Young, Booker T, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton are a part of the Kick-off panel.

They are going over the lineup tonight. We will see our first ever Miss Me Arse match, between Sheamus Vs Dolph Ziggler. Divas Title, with Nikki Bella Vs Naomi.

Daniel Bryan is not medically cleared for tonight, so on the Kick-off show, we will see Bad News Barrett Vs Neville.

New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro is added to the PPV now.

Tom Phillips is in the Social Media Lounge, for Extreme Rules.

Kane will be the guest on tonight’s show, you can ask Kane questions with hashtag #AskKane.

What will Kane’s role be in tonight’s main event as Gatekeeper of the steel cage?

We see video footage of Rollins Vs Orton, now.

Orton’s RKO is banned tonight, so how can he find a way to win without it?

It’s the “Young Lion” against “The Veteran”.

Also tonight, Naomi will face Nikki Bella for the Divas Title.

We see Naomi take out Paige two weeks ago.

Eden is standing by with Naomi.

Naomi is dropping the “good girl” image. She is about taking risks, and is tired of people judging her when they have no business doing that. She is walking tonight as the new Divas Champion.

Dean Ambrose interrupts this fun, Dean is here for a Chicago Streetfight, with Luke Harper.

Dean remembers Wrestlemania. He remembers 12 staples to his head. He is taking it to Luke Harper tonight. Dean Ambrose gets his revenge, right here in Chicago, and he walks off.

Sheamus Vs Dolph Ziggler in a Kiss Me Arse match, and we see footage of Sheamus laying out Ziggler.

Someone is kissing ass after the match, and I feel like it will be Ziggler.

Stephanie McMahon will be a guest on Chris Jericho’s podcast, featured on WWE Network this Thursday, after Smackdown.

Tough Enough segment.

Now we see the buildup to Reigns Vs Big Show tonight, in a Last Man Standing match.

Bray Wyatt interrupts the festivities. He tells us he is just like all of us, he is weak. Bray understands him. We all understand that a man must walk among the gods, but God must walk among men. You are a coward, and he is the new face of fear.

Will Bray Wyatt show up tonight?

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

He tells us Daniel Bryan isn’t medically cleared to compete tonight, but the truth is Daniel is afraid of Bad News Barrett. Because he is afraid of losing the Intercontinental Title to him, and who to blame him?

Since he is “The Michael Jordan” of England, minus the gambling problems. He wants to give us a bonus match, of Barrett Vs Neville.

And here we go.

What a great match this was, Barrett had many opportunities, but Neville wins with Red Arrow.

A great start to Extreme Rules.

Kane is joining Social Media Lounge, but he walks away after 2 questions.

John Cena Vs Rusev in a Russian Chain match is being featured now.

Who wins the match?

It’s time for Extreme Rules. Keep checking here for updates throughout the night.

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

We kick off with a Chicago Streetfight, Dean Ambrose Vs Luke Harper.

This match ends in a no contest, when Luke Harper drove off in a limo, and Ambrose followed him in the car.

We will see more from them, later.

Charles Robinson ran after them, which is funny.

We see HHH, and he brings Kane in to check on Ambrose and Harper. They run into Rollins. HHH wants both of them on the same page tonight. Rollins agrees, but he wants to know why Kane threw him to the wolves on Roman Reigns’ spear. Kane tells Rollins he has been a spoiled brat since he won the title. HHH tells Kane Rollins has a point, and Kane tells them both he will do what is best for business.

Kiss Me Arse match is now with Dolph Ziggler Vs Sheamus.

Ziggler wins the match with a rollup. Sheamus has to kiss Ziggy’s ass.

Sheamus is trying to get away, but the ref tells him he must do this.

And of course, Sheamus punches Ziggler in the nuts, and gives him a Brogue Kick.

You didn’t think he would kiss his arse, did you Ziggler? Especially in this stinking town. He told him he would make Ziggler kiss his arse, and he won’t disappoint.

So he shoves Ziggler’s head on his arse.

Wow, what was the point of having the match, then?

So it’s now New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro, for the Tag Team Titles.

The New Day wins the match, and Tag Titles. Natalya slapped Xavier, Tyson kicked Xavier, Big E flew into Tyson. Cesaro looks on, and Kofi rolls up the tights, and holds on to them for the win.

The New Day were acting like heels, while Cesaro and Kidd were the faces.

Interesting dynamic here.

We hear from the Extreme Rules panel. They go over what we have seen so far, and they show us Barrett Vs Neville match earlier tonight. Neville picks up an upset victory.

Renee Young is with The New Day.

Positivity has taken over here, when they say New Day, we say new champs. New Day….sucks.

We see the limo come up again, with Luke Harper flying out and Ambrose going after him.

They come back to the ringside.

We have flying chairs in the ring, ECW chants, and Dirty Deeds. Dean Ambrose pins Luke Harper.

I loved that segment there.

WWE Payback is in 3 weeks, Sunday, May 17th.

WWE United States Title match is up now. John Cena Vs Rusev in a Russian Chain Match.

Cena touches all four corners before Rusev did, so he retained the title. The fans were digging Lana, so Rusev forced her to leave, which the fans hated. Shades of Marc Mero and Sable there.

The Champ Is Here, or something like that.

Renee Young is with Roman Reigns. Roman said Big Show can knock him down, but he can’t keep him down. So what happens when he gets knocked down? He gets right back up, and he will be the Last Man Standing.

Believe that.

Nikki Bella Vs Naomi for the Divas Title is up now.

Nikki wins when Brie kicks Naomi, and Nikki hits a Rack Attack.

So what was the point of Naomi turning heel if she loses the title match?

Rusev is irate at losing, and I believe irate at Lana. He orders her to walk away.

She walks into The Authority’s office.

Last Man Standing match is up now, Roman Reigns Vs Big Show.

Roman Reigns is the last man standing, giving Big Show a spear through an announce table, and he lifted the announce table and put it on top of Show, so he couldn’t get up.

A fun match here.

Kane is walking backstage, and Orton approaches him. Orton tells Kane they have known each other for over a decade. They have fought each other, and have fought with each other. Orton tells Kane when they are done with him, they will throw him out like garbage. Orton knows who he is, Kane, even if he has forgotten.

Orton Vs Rollins, inside a steel cage is up now.

WWE Tough Enough returns on my birthday, June 23rd.

Oh my, it’s Bo Dallas.

Bo Dallas tells us Chicago is number one….at not taking a shower before you come to the arena. Number one at not listening to Bo Dallas’ advice, and smelling up the arena. You need to listen to what he is saying.

Raise your hands, and repeat after him, all you have to do is BOleive…..

Feed Me More!!

Ryback comes out, and while Bo tries to fight back, ShellShock!!

Feed Me More!!

Byron Saxton is with Rusev.

John Cena didn’t beat him. He is a coward and a lyer. Lana tells Rusev that it is done. The final chapter of Rusev Vs Cena will be at Payback, in an I Quit match.

The perfect combination for America. John Cena will quit, like all Americans do.

Steel cage goes down, Orton Vs Rollins, isnide a steel cage is now.

Kane was involved, whacked both guys with the cage door. He chokeslammed Orton, Rollins, J & J Security. Orton gave Kane a RKO after a kickout, then Rollins hits a RKo on Orton, and escapes out of the cage, to retain his WWE Title.

The show ends with Rollins celebrating on the ground.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I had low expectations going into this show, but it was a fun night. I loved the Streetfight, and how it continued on throughout the night, with Dean winning.

I’m bored with Kane and The Authority however. Either he is a part of them, or not. That part just didn’t make any sense.

And Naomi should have won Divas Title too, because now why would she get another title match, when she lost in the ring?

We will see, and WWE has been teasing WWE King of the Ring is coming back on WWE Network this Tuesday. We will see tomorrow night.

Impact Wrestling 4/24/15….Night of Knockouts

After a 2 week absence, I am back writing about Impact Wrestling.  Tonight, we will see a special theme show….Night of Knockouts.

We will see a Fatal 4-Way to determine the new Number One Contender to the Knockout Title, with Gail Kim Vs Angelina Love Vs Madison Rayne Vs Brooke.  We will also see The Knockout Title on the line, with Taryn Terrell Vs Awesome Kong.  And for the World Heavyweight Title, Kurt Angle Vs Eric Young.

Kurt Angle heads to the ring, and he calls Eric out.

Last week, Kurt said he wanted the “old” Eric Young to wrestle him.  The one who won the World Heavyweight Title, not the “crazy” side of Eric Young the last few months.  Last week, we might have seen a glimpse of Eric, so which one are we going to see?

Eric tells Kurt that people have been calling him crazy his entire life.  But people had been spinning things from him, and saying things.  But last week, Kurt turned his back on Eric, and he didn’t attack him.  Kurt brought out the best side of Eric Young, the “real” Eric Young.  May the best man win tonight.

The two men shook hands

Enter Austin Aries.

Austin told Kurt the “real” Eric Young is the man who turned on his best friend,  Aries tells Kurt that he holds the briefcase, to determine when he gets a World Title shot.  Austin tells Kurt that he will get that shot tonight, facing Kurt one on one.  And he is going to put on a great match with Kurt, but at the end of the night, Aries will leave as the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

Eric is upset, as Austin leaves.

Tonight, Taryn Terrell will face Awesome Kong.  Also someone from BDC will face someone from The Rising, and now we hear from Taryn Terrell.

Taryn tells us she has the biggest challenge in front of her, but she will do whatever it takes to make sure the Knockout Title stays around her waist.

Fatal 4-Way to determine who the Number One Contender to the Knockout Title is up now.

Gail Kim Vs Angelina Love Vs Madison Rayne Vs Brooke.

Brooke wins, pinning Madison in a Facebuster. Brooke pulls off an upset, and will now face the Knockout Champion.

The Rising has a message for the fans, thanking them for standing up to wrestling.

Tonight, it will be Micah, but who will he face from the BDC? Find out next.

Tonight, it will be Kurt Angle Vs Austin Aries.

Eric is being interviewed backstage. EY is not happy about being bumped tonight. It means everything to him.

It’s BDC Vs The Rising, one on one.

MVP sees that the crowd is behind The Rising, and Galloway is right, there is something about stand up wrestling.

It will be Micah Vs Kenny King, who attacked Micah.

Micah wins the match with a Samoan Drop, and here come The BDC with the beat down.

Drew and Eli come out to help, but newest BDC member, Homicide comes out too.

A 4-on-3 attack.

Lo-Ki nails Drew with a lead pipe on the gut to put the stamp of this beat down.

Drew is being helped to the back. Drew tells Lo-Ki he is still standing. Next week is Hardcore Justice. They will have a steel pipe on a pole match.

The Dollhouse vignette is playing, and we will see them in action, now.

It’s going to be Jade Vs Laura Dennis.

Laura Dennis wins by DQ, when Marty ran Brian Stiffler into the ring post. And after Christy Hemme announced Laura won, they attacked Christy and sent her into the steel steps.

They are a bit odd here.

We come back, and see Eric Young backstage, down about the situation. Kurt Angle assures Eric he is the Number One Contender. Eric and Kurt both know Eric is the Number One Contender, history seems to be repeating here. Kurt assures Eric that he will get the next title shot, and Eric doesn’t want to hear this, and he leaves.

Magnus is in the ring.

Magnus appreciates the fans support, and his family appreciates it too. But tonight is not about him, it’s about his fiancée, and simply put one of the greatest woman wrestlers, addressing her future.

Here comes Mickie James.

Mickie wants to thank the fans, she wants to thank Magnus. The last few weeks have been a roller coaster, and she wanted to come back to support Magnus, through his feud with Bram. She has been honored to be in the ring with some of the greatest women wrestlers in her generation. And beating some of them, and when you hold the World Title, it means everything and you were born to do this. But holding Donovan, their son means more to her. And as of tonight, she is going home and will be a Mom. She wants to thank us, and appreciate what they mean to her.

Thank you Mickie chants, and here comes James Storm.

James knows this is a family moment here, but he tells us that people who know the real James Storm knows he loves cold beer, hot women, and fast cars.

And when he looks at Mickie, he knows she would rather wear cowboy boots than high heels. She would rather drink wine in a box than some fancy cup. She is a woman who stands by her man, no matter who she has to stand up to.

So when she stands in the gorilla position, she hears her music and knows the fans are about to chant Mickie. He knows this was a hard decision, but she might regret it.

Magnus chimes in, and says he appreciates what he did for them, but this was a hard decision. James stops him right there, and says he always made easy decisions. Because if a decision is difficult, it shouldn’t be made.

She is one of the greatest wrestlers in the business, not just in wrestling, but singing the country songs.

Mickie has made her decision, and she thinks it’s the right decision.

Storm understands she wants to be a great mother, and anyone who has kids understand that. But James wants to tell Mickie a little secret, these people love Mickie James.

James isn’t asking for her to do a full-time schedule, just asking for her to do it one more time.

The crowd wants one more time.

Mickie agrees to it one more time.

James taps Magnus on the shoulder. Magnus doesn’t look amused.

Tonight, Taryn Terrell Vs Awesome Kong, for the Knockout Title. And Kurt Angle Vs Austin Aries, for the World Title.

During the break, Magnus wants to clarify what Mickie is thinking. She got caught up in the moment. One more match wouldn’t hurt. Davey Richards catches up with Magnus.

He is warning him about Storm, calling him the “devil”.

We come back, and it’s Davey Richards Vs Manik.

Davey wins the match, with what he is calling Cheap Death, basically a kick to the head.

Here come Abyss and Khoya to take out Davey, but here come The Hardys.

EC3 and Tyrus are backstage. Ethan has a big announcement to make, and he wants us to discuss it as #EC32015.

What about #EC32015?

Exactly.

EC3 has the fans in the palm of his hand. Ethan is here to declare himself the next TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

2015 is the year, EC3 is the man. They say that a title makes the man, but he disagrees, because he will make the title.

His qualifications, you might ask?

Ever since his debut in October, of 2013, he has been unpinned, and unsubmlitted. That means for the last 21 months, he has been a gold mine.

He has defeated every single TNA Hall of Famer there is. That includes Bully Ray, Sting, and the current TNA World Champion, Kurt Angle.

There is no candidate better suited for him to take this company to the next level for the next 4, oh hell, 8 years.

EC32015, will be a grassroots campaign, and will start here in Florida.

Watch as unemployment will go down 79%, and Unmotivated Children and Lazy millennial will go down 67%.

EC3 loves this speech too.

These United States will be Carter Country. No longer red, no longer blue. Golden, united by one star, one Hardcore American ICON to lead the charge. He will take this title, charge it as one. He will defend it around the world, he will defend it in Mars, Martians, he is coming for them.

He is Ethan Carter III, the next TNA World Champion. God Bless TNA Wrestling. God Bless EC3.

Here comes Mr. Anderson.

Anderson is not wanted, but Mr. Anderson tells him he has one hell of a future.

Mr. Anderson is the first endorsement for EC3 as World Champion.

But Anderson corrects him, his future is in Washington. He can run with Anthony Weiner.

Anderson tells Carter he waited 11 years to win his first World Title. He broke his body, he broke his bones, and that’s how you win championships.

Ethan wants to show Anderson what a World Champion looks like, and the two men fight, with Anderson getting the upper hand.

Taryn Terrell video is playing now.

Kong Vs Terrell, next.

Taryn wants this to be a No DQ match, and she gets that wish.

The Dollhouse aided Taryn, and we saw a Triple Power Bomb through a table.

Taryn tells us people didn’t think she could beat Kong, but she proved us wrong, and anyone who messed with her, has to deal with her new friends.

This is their house….The Dollhouse.

Austin Aries is the measuring stick, and to prove it, he has to beat Kurt Angle one on one. No games, no BS. Time to cash this in, and become the new World Heavyweight Champion.

He runs into Eric Young, Aries tells him he will give EY the first shot when he beats Kurt.

EY walks away.

Josh Matthews reviews what we just saw. The Dollhouse being aligned with Taryn Terrell.

Backstage, Magnus asks some TV people if they can follow Mickie, and off they go.

Our main event, Kurt Angle Vs Austin Aries for the TNA World Title is up now.

The match never happens, when Eric Young attacks Aries and nails a Piledriver on the floor.

Eric hits another Piledriver on the steel steps, and we see Kurt Angle coming over, but Eric attacks Kurt too. He takes the anklebrace off Kurt and nails a chair on the ankle. Figure Four time.

Next Friday, Hardcore Justice returns. The Hardys and Davey Richards Vs The Revolution in a 6-man streetfight. Also, Drew Galloway Vs Lo-Ki in a Steel Pipe on a Pole match.

Hardcore Justice, next week.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Alot has happened since I last watched Impact Wrestling. The Hardys are the new Tag Team Champions, The Dollhouse made their debut, EY showed us his “real” side, and “crazy” side all in the same episode. And Taz is gone from TNA. It’s now Josh Matthews. He needs someone to work with, but he did a decent job. But still needs a color man. Thank you Taz for everything you had done for TNA.

An interesting show here, we saw women being featured on most of the night here. The Dollhouse is with Taryn Terrell, and what will Kong’s response be?

I even like the fact Angle Vs Aries did not happen, and he still has his briefcase.

James Storm proved what kind of great performer he is. One moment, he has the crowd at the palm of his hand, then within moments, he becomes a cult leader again. I’d like to see where this is going.

Also, May 8th show, will be live. We should see what Slammiversary will look like.

But my hero of the night belongs to EC3. I would vote for him, and know he would represent TNA well for the next 8 years. Remember #EC32015.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 4/20/15…Road To Extreme Rules Ends Here

Tonight, The Authority will make their 2-week hiatus back.  HHH gave us an announcement about “Tough Enough” returning to TV.  6 days from Extreme Rules.

Raw is now.

At Extreme Rules, we will see Randy Orton Vs Seth Rollins, inside a steel cage, with Randy’s RKO move banned.

The steel cage is lowered, and we see Randy Orton headed to the ring.

For someone claiming to be smart, Seth Rollins is a dumb bastard. He believes Orton’s greatest weapon is the RKO, but Randy’s best weapon is inflicting pain. He doesn’t need the RKO. It’s too quick, and too easy. But now he has no other choice but to do it nice and slow.

Randy will break Rollins’ jaw, so we won’t have to hear him run his mouth week in, and week out. He will also take His rib, and break it. But we will take his stupid blonde streak in Seth’s hair and ram it into the steel cage. And when he is pinned, Rollins reign will end as WWE Champion.

Here comes the WWE World Champion.

Seth plays the game of human chess better than anybody. And this Sunday, he will prove that by defeating Orton and continuing his run as the greatest WWE World Champion.

He has this title to prove how good he is. Orton may be one of the greatest WWE Superstars in the history, but he is that much better.

Cage or no cage, Rollins will beat Orton this Sunday.

Orton brings up since he banned the RKO this Sunday, he will go in the back, and RKO every son of a bitch he sees. And then by the end of tonight, he will RKO Rollins.

HHH will return tonight, and make a big announcement on Tough Enough.

Dean Ambrose Vs Luke Harper, one on one is next.

Luke Harper is on the mic, he tells Dean he doesn’t know why he isn’t afraid of him, but at the end of the night, Dean will be.

The match ends in a no contest when the guys beat the crap out of each other.

The segment ends with Luke throwing Ambrose off the top of the ramp.

Seth Rollins with J & J Security are looking over their shoulders, for Orton. Tyrus O’ Neil scares him. Rollins wants to show everyone he isn’t scared of anyone, and dares to beat up the next guy he sees.

That guy is….HHH.

HHH assures Rollins he will talk to Kane when he comes in. Rollins assures HHH he has Orton under control, but he needs more security.

But Randy is one guy.

Lucha Dragons are in action, next.

Lucha Dragons Vs New Day.

Winners get Tag Team Title match this Sunday.

The New Day wins the match with a countout. Xavier Woods held Sin Cara’s foot underneath the ring.

As they celebrate, Randy Orton RKO’s Kofi and Xavier. Big E. thought it best to walk away, and he does.

New Day Vs Cesaro and Kidd at Extreme Rules.

At Extreme Rules, John Cena Vs Rusev in a Russian Chain Match. Also, Cena will have an open challenge tonight. We see footage from last week when Rusev attacked Cena with a chain.

Next, we see footage from last week when Big Show took Reigns for a ride.

We see footage from last week, including Big Show’s explanation from this past Thursday night on Smackdown.

This Sunday, Big Show Vs Reigns in a Last Man Standing Match.

It’s Fandango Vs Curtis Axel.

Last Dance, match is done.

Tonight, The Miz Vs Damien Mizdow, winner gets “The Miz” brand.

HHH is tweeting, he joins us live, next.

HHH comes out to make the official announcement that Tough Enough is coming back, and the ideal behind the show is we can audition. Anyone can try out, and he asks us what it would be like to hear your own music, to get onto this stage. To headline Wrestlemania, and to wrestle for the WWE World Heavyweight Title. That is our dream, and WWE is giving us that opportunity. Tell them, show them, go to WWEToughEnough.com, and maybe we can be one of the 10 men, or 5 women chosen to compete on the show. The winner gets a WWE contract. Do we have what it takes? If we do, show the world that we are truly tough enough.

Here comes Kane.

Kane tells HHH that he has been trying to return his phone calls, send him text messages, send him emails all week-long. HHH told him he wanted Kane to cool off.

Kane is here to give HHH his two weeks notice, because HHH trusts that WWE World Champion, someone who doesn’t appreciate the ones who have helped him get the title.

Seth Rollins shows up, calls Kane a loser and wants HHH to drop this guy. The Authority doesn’t need him.

Kane screams at him, and says The Authority could have chosen anyone to be WWE World Champ, even El Torito.

HHH gets in between of both of them, and calls for Kane to be the Gatekeeper of the Cage match. Nobody goes through Kane this Sunday.

Rollins shakes hands with Kane, and walks away.

Okay, Kane is the Gatekeeper, I guess.

Cole, JBL, and Booker T show us what happened last week, when Naomi took out Paige after being eliminated in the Diva’s Battle Royal.

Paige is out indefinitely, and it will be Naomi Vs Nikki Bella, this Sunday.

Naomi Vs Brie is next.

Backstage, Rollins and Kane are still arguing. HHH tells Kane he has to be corporate, and no longer be the hell, fire, and brimstone. Kane disagrees, and proves it tonight.

Naomi Vs Brie is now.

Naomi wins with a Rear View.

Though the title match is not confirmed, Nikki Bella confirms she will not deny the match if it’s given to her.

Heath Slater is in catering with Erick Rowan. Heath talks about accepting the John Cena United States Challenge, and will be the new United States Champion, BA-BAY!!

Rowan just walks away, and Heath is met with a RKO.

That’s 3 for Randy.

We hear from Roman Reigns, next.

Roman Reigns comes out to the ring. He doesn’t want to talk, he wants to fight. He wants Big Show to come out.

Here comes Bo Dallas.

He noticed anger in Roman’s voice. Like Yoda said in Episode I….”Anger leads to hate, and hate leads to suffering”

We know Roman suffered when he went through a car hood last week. He also suffered after losing at Wrestlemania. Roman is a bit of a bust, he is a “Tim Tebow” of WWE. He fails and fails every time. He knows Reigns will be WWE World Champion someday. He just has to

BOLIEVE!!

Superman Punch, and then a spear.

Big Show is too scared to face Reigns man to man, but this Sunday, Reigns will tear him up, and be the last man standing.

You can BOlieve that.

Ziggler Vs Rollins, tonight.

Sheamus is now facing Zack Ryder.

Woo Woo Woo…You Know It.

Bell rings, Brogue Kick. He can pin him, but where is the fun in that? Ryder deserves more time than that.

Sheamus is on the mic the entire time. He says Ryder is just like us, none of us could last 2 seconds in the ring with him.

Sheamus throws Zack out of the ring like a rag doll. And he gives him another Brogue Kick for good measure.

Ziggler comes out and gives Sheamus a Zig Zag.

Sheamus wins by DQ, I guess.

Ziggler Vs Sheamus in a Kiss Me Arse match this Sunday, at Extreme Rules.

Up next, John Cena US Title Open Challenge.

Cena wants to talk first.

This Sunday, live on WWE Network, we go Extreme.

This Sunday, we go for revenge. We saw earlier that Rusev means business, and why shouldn’t he? Cena handed him Rusev’s first loss at Wrestlemania.

And he, just like us cringe whenever Cena says The Champ Is Here.

But this Sunday, Rusev wants to do what is best, which is destroy. The winner of a Russian Chain match is to touch all four corners successfully. And that means Rusev wants to take the fighting spirit away from Cena.

Rusev’s plan is to dominate, and win back his United States Title. But that just won’t happen. Rusev wants to prove that Wrestlemania was a fluke, but it wasn’t, it was a statement. And this is an opportunity of Rusev getting a steel plate up his ass.

But we will still get a fight tonight.

Albany is the place to be, John Cena is the man to beat. The John Cena United States Title open challenge starts now.

You want some, come get some.

Kane answers the call.

Cena wins with the AA, with Seth Rollins laughing about the loss backstage.

Tonight, Ziggler Vs Rollins.

Kane comes backstage after his loss, and HHH gives him “the look”, you know that look, like when your parents are disappointed in you?

The Miz is with Renee Young.

Miz’s brand is on the line tonight. He gets to face that imposter, and Miz shows off his “The Marine 4″ Blu-Ray, out tomorrow.

But Renee interrupts this interview, with another interview. Byron Saxton is standing by with The United States Champion, John Cena.

John talks about opportunities and tonight’s win was huge. But Rusev attacks him with a chain.

Rusev Vs Cena in a Russian Chain match this Sunday, at Extreme Rules.

The Miz Vs Damien Mizdow is up now.

The Miz wins, with some help from Summer Rae, who turns heel again.

The Miz tells us he is AWESOME…..

RKO by Orton, giving us 4 tonight.

Extreme Rules rundown.

Luke Harper Vs Dean Ambrose is added, with a Chicago Streetfight. Also New Day Vs Cesaro and Kidd is now for the Tag Team Titles, and it’s in the Kick-Off show.

So New Day was fighting for a shot at Tag Titles, and they aren’t even on the PPV.

How is that a new day?

Ziggler Vs Rollins is tonight.

Bray Wyatt interrupts us to ask if you want success, do you want money? Fame? Because you can lift as much weight as you want, but the one factor that will hurt you is Bray Wyatt. He will show that you have been nothing but a failure, and when you look up, you’ll see Bray Wyatt standing on top of you.

Behold the new face of fear.

Ryback Vs Adam Rose, now.

Shellshock, game is over.

The hot dog and banana try to attack Ryback, but it doesn’t work.

Ryback asks us what the banana said to the hot dog? Nothing, because they both had been shellshocked.

Renee Young is standing by with Kane. I guess Rollins was tweeting a joke about Kane’s loss. He tweeted that Kane needs dental floss and depends.

Kane confronts Rollins in the back. They go face to face, and Rollins apologizes. He admitted he has been under pressure with Orton. He knows Kane has done alot for Rollins, and to stay on top. He will dedicate his match with Ziggler to Kane.

Rollins walks out with J & J Security, with Randy Orton watching in the distance.

Rollins wins the match with an Implanted DDT, after Sheamus comes out to distract Ziggler for a moment.

After the match, Rollins wants to say his thank yous, and show the world why he is the best in the business this Sunday.

Here comes HHH, and he’s marching to the ring.

HHH wanted to tell us Rollins is going to defeat Randy Orton, and remain the WWE World Champion, but Rollins interrupts HHH and degrades Kane. But now here comes Kane, the cage goes down. Orton is somehow there….RKO!!!

We don’t stop there, no we must plug Hulk Hogan Rock and Wrestling on WWE Network.

NOW the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

What a boring show tonight, the highlights were the RKO’s. Not sure why Kane and Rollins are bitching too. But eh, who cares.

Anyway, Extreme Rules is this Sunday, and I can’t wait to see New Day Vs Cesaro and Kidd.

Can’t you tell?

WWE Monday Night Raw 4/13/15…Live From England….On Tape

Tonight, WWE is in London, England.  I did not read the spoilers, so I am reacting to what I am watching.  I do know we will have a Diva Battle Royal, to determine who the Number One Contender is to the Diva’s Title.

Raw is now.

Michael Cole is back, as he is with JBL and Jerry “The King” Lawler.

John Cena kicks off the program.

The London crowd does not like Cena.

Cena butters up the fans to say London should host Wrestlemania. Cena is here for the United States Open Challenge, and who answers it?

Bad News Barrett.

Barrett is ready, and our match is next.

Cena won another good match here with Attitude Adjustment.

We see Lana return, and she distracted Cena so Rusev attacked Cena with a chain. Lana informs Cena that their match at Extreme Rules is a Russian Chain Match.

We haven’t seen a Russian Chain match since 1991, when Sting faced Nikita Koloff, at Great American Bash.

Last week, we had the triple threat match with Orton Vs Reigns Vs Ryback, and we see footage of that.

Big Show knocked out Roman Reigns.

Tonight, both Orton and Rollins have single matches. Orton will face Cesaro, and Rollins will face Ziggler.

The Bella Twins come out to the ring to join commentary for the Divas Battle Royal, next.

Paige wins the Battle Royal.

I am surprised Naomi didn’t go over here, with the pinfall victories she has had lately.

Paige Vs Nikki Bella at Extreme Rules.

We are in London, England tonight.

Paige is in the ring, with Byron Saxton.

Paige won the Divas Title on her first night in WWE. Just 2 weeks ago, she won her first Wrestlemania with AJ Lee.

But nothing compares to be competing in front of her own home country. A place where she started wrestling in gyms, making a pound, and this is in her own home country, in front of her father and her family, and friends. This is her house.

Naomi attacks Paige, and turns heel.

An official comes in and checks on Paige. Naomi believed she was next in line for a Divas Title shot, and Paige went past her.

Now we hear from Bray Wyatt.

It becomes an obsession. It becomes a sin. Love can be blinded, it can cloud your judgment, and it can stop you. But you’re in luck friend, because Bray has decided to reach deep inside of him. Because fear can be enriched inside your soul. And soon, he will see what it can do to you. So pay attention my friend, because behold the new face of fear.

Our next match is Lucha Dragons Vs The Ascension.

Lucha Dragons win in a 3 minute match.

Moving on….

Booker T is in the ring with Roman Reigns.

It’s been two weeks of an opportunity of a lifetime, Booker says. But we know that opportunity was ripped away from him. What is Roman’s mental mind is.

Roman went to Suplex City, and he woke up the next day. He felt it, and it didn’t feel good, but he woke up the next day. They told them that they were going to give us brutal fights. He told The Beast he was going to hit him in the mouth, Brock felt that punch. He could have beaten him, but Seth capitalized on the moment. Roman has beaten Seth Rollins, so he be the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Big Show took that opportunity last week. He wishes he can say he is the biggest giant, he is a multi-World Champion, but lately he has become Seth Rollins’ little bitch.

Big Show shows up on the screen. He told Roman that he lost at Mania, while Show won Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. But Reigns is a loser, and he will do whatever he can to make Roman the biggest loser in WWE history. Everytime he gets up, Big Show will knock him back down.

Reigns dares Show to come out and face Reigns, man to man. Not a guy who is at the jumbo screen. Either he is too lazy, or he doesn’t have enough balls.

But if he continues to be a thorn, he will take that trophy and shove it down his throat, and he can believe that.

Big Show attacks Reigns after Reigns said he could retire him. He rams him into the taxi car they have on set two times.

Show takes Reigns and gives him a Chokeslam on the car.

We see footage of the wreckage of the car after Big Show put Reigns through it.

Match time, Randy Orton Vs Cesaro is now.

Well, this is a bit of a disappointment, the match ends in a DQ, when Tyson Kidd interfered.

But Kane doesn’t like this either. There needs to be a winner, so he will make this a 2-on-1 Handicap match, now.

Orton wins with a RKo out of nowhere, pinning Kidd.

Orton now has an opportunity to choose the stipulation on his match against Rollins, at Extreme Rules.

RKO was fantastic.

Kane has let down The Authority again, but Rollins has a chance to redeem himself when he beats Dolph Ziggler.

Rollins has a better idea, he will not face Ziggler. He will face Jamie Noble.

Jamie doesn’t want to face him, he puts blame on Kane again. Kane asks Rollins if he is afraid of Ziggler? No, Rollins NEEDS to win tonight. He needs to face someone who knows how to get the job done. He needs to face someone who knows what is best for business.

Kane asks Rollins if he is implying Kane can be beat? Rollins tells Kane the number one thing is they have to protect the champion. They can always call HHH, and see what he has to say.

Kane walks away, and Rollins assures J & J Security he knows what he has to do.

Oh boy, it’s Adam Rose. But his opponent is Dean Ambrose.

Dean needs a win, here.

Dirty Deeds, and the party is fowl.

Kane is on the phone, Big Show tells Kane that he did what was best for The Authority. Kane knows what is best for business, and Rollins can’t lose tonight, because he heads into Extreme Rules at a disadvantage. And Randy Orton as WWE World Heavyweight Champion is not what is best for business.

Kane tells us it will be Rollins Vs Kane. And he will do what is best for business.

Stardust Vs Fandango is now.

Stardust wins with Beautiful Disaster kick.

Fandango informs Rosa Mendes he realizes what he needs to do, he is losing because he only has his dance with Rosa, and not the entire WWE Universe.

We hear the old Fandango music, and the crowd loves it.

Kane is confronted by Daniel Bryan.

Kane tells him to please leave the room, and Daniel tells Kane that he is going to lie down for Seth. The Kane he knows would tombstoned Rollins. This gets Kane fired up, and he tells him to leave.

Kane Vs Rollins is next.

Kane refused to lay down at first, even going after J & J Security. But Seth tells him this is his WWE. And he runs things here. So Kane lays down, but then gives Rollins a chokeslam. He sets him up for the Tombstone, but realizes his job is on the line, so he rolls Rollins over and Seth wins.

Both Orton and Rollins get to choose a stipulation.

Damien Mizdow is coming out next, it will be The Miz Vs Damien Mizdow, now.

Mizdow wins with a rollup of the tights. Mizdow wins the match, and gets Summer Rae.

Primetime Players are now making fun of Los Matadores.

Tonight, our main event is what is dubbed as “Extreme Decision” between Randy Orton and Seth Rollins.

It’s Ryback Vs Luke Harper, now.

Ryback wins by DQ in a quick, sudden match. But here comes Dean Ambrose wanting to get himself some, but Harper just moves away. And he throws a chair near ringside.

Earlier tonight, Paige won the Divas Battle Royal, but Naomi snapped after the match.

Byron Saxton is standing by with Naomi. She has no remorse over what she did. This is about Naomi.

Who is the Diva’s Champion? Nikki Bella. The diva that she beat twice. So why did they must have the battle royal? She was in the same NXT season as AJ Lee, and they call her a legend now that she is gone. Naomi is tired of being nice, she is taking what is hers.

That was a good promo there, and effective.

Dolph Ziggler is in action, next.

Ziggler comes back, and we find out he is not happy to not have his shot at Rollins tonight. Kane thought he did what was best for business? Kane proved to be the Devil’s favorite dumbass.

Ziggler is the best in this business, so he will issue an open challenge.

Who will face Ziggler?

Neville.

The WWE veteran finds a way to win with a Zig Zag.

A great match here, and Sheamus attacks both men.

Ziggler fights back, which is good to see, but Sheamus rams Ziggler’s head into the steel post and hits another Brogue Kick.

So are we going to see Ziggler get into the IC Title situation? Not sure why Sheamus attacks Ziggler twice here.

Earlier tonight, we see Big Show attack Reigns.

Big Show will be on Thursday Night Smackdown, but next we get our “Extreme Decision”.

Next week, HHH will have a major announcement about “Tough Enough”.

Seth Rollins and Randy Orton make their way out to the ring, now.

Rollins is with J & J Security, and they have La-Z Boy chairs out.

Rollins tell us we can boo him if we all want, but he is the future of WWE. And he is the greatest WWE World Heavyweight Champion of all time. You don’t believe him? He defeated both Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at the same night at Wrestlemania.

He also defeated Kane earlier tonight. Kane was supposed to be here, but Kane relieved his duties for the night, and put Rollins in charge.

He has a great stipulation for Orton, so he calls him out to the ring.

Orton tells Rollins he too gets to choose a stipulation. So how about they make things more simple, and take the chairs out of the equation, and both men fight. The man standing will then choose the stipulation.

Rollins loves to complicate things, he takes advantage of those opportunities. This is all power, Rollins won Money in the Bank making things complicated. Orton’s power is the RKO, and that move is banned for their title match at Extreme Rules.

Good move, and Randy wants to take Seth’s power away too. Seth’s power isn’t his mind, it’s The Authority. So how about they have their match inside a steel cage.

You think that scares Seth? He is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and without the RKO, Orton has nothing.

Orton tells Rollins since the RKO is banned from Extreme Rules, they might as well give the fans what their money’s worth.

Orton goes after Rollins, and he hits a RKO on both Jamie and Mercury, but Rollins slips out of the ring.

The show ends with Orton celebrating.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This show had its ups and downs. Considering everything, it wasn’t a bad show for England. We had some good matches, but the moments too were questionable.

I have no clue why Sheamus goes after Ziggler, when he has his match at Extreme Rules set with Daniel Bryan. Does this mean Ziggler will be added?

Will Naomi be added to Divas Title match too? Since Paige needs to get her revenge on Naomi?

Will we ever see “The Big Red Machine” back?

And why did we get a 2 minute match with Miz and Mizdow, when they had set their feud up for months?

But boy, Ziggler Vs Neville was good, as was Cena Vs Barrett. I like these United States Title challenge, and maybe it will make US Title more important? IC Title needs to be held with high regard too. Are they doing that? Maybe I should watch Smackdown again, and find out?

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 4/6/15…Figuring Out Who Number One Contender Is

We are live at The University of Texas.  Byron Saxton, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show.

HHH and Stephanie McMahon are on “vacation”, so all hell can break loose.

We start the show off with Seth Rollins and The Authority in the ring.

How original.

Seth tries to speak, but the fans won’t let him, they keep booing.

He wants to send a shout-out to HHH and Stephanie. They are on vacation, and after Wrestlemania, they have earned it.

The crowd gives him a you sold out chant, and Seth reminds the fans he is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Also, they want to talk about the biggest takeaway, it’s not the attendance record. No, it’s not that they broke PPV records, no. It’s not even that they trended about 243 million times throughout the night. The biggest takeaway is The Authority always win.

Let’s talk about The Authority making Wrestlemania moments all night. It starts with HHH taking care of that “Face paint freak” Sting, and putting the nail in the coffin on WCW once and for all.

Big Show won Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

And Kane….well Kane……Kane was there.

Big Show tells us he is the best giant in wrestling history, but Seth Rollins won the WWE World Title.

Seth Rollins is the future, and the future is now. And he is the greatest WWE World Champion, of all-time.

Big Show thanks Seth for giving The Authority a moment they will never forget at Wrestlemania.

Seth brings up Kane, but again, what did he do?

Kane starts to talk, but here comes Randy Orton.

Randy tells Seth he made his Wrestlemania moment, but so did Orton with his best RKO ever. And he beat Rollins at Mania.

Rollins calls Orton a complainer, but Orton is telling it like it is. He beat Rollins, but he deserves a WWE World Title, and that is best for business.

So how about that Mr. Director of Operations, or does he have to call Mommy and Daddy to approve it.

Kane informs Orton he is still the Director of Operations, and he deserves respect.

There are many other wrestlers that deserve title shots. So what he will do is give us a Triple Threat match tonight to determine the new Number One Contender to the WWE World Title.

Roman Reigns Vs Ryback Vs Randy Orton.

But first, all three men will face other opponents. Orton will wrestle now, against Kane.

Kane is DQ’d when he uses a chair on Orton.

Orton tries a RKO on a chair, but Kane escapes and leaves.

Tonight, Roman Reigns Vs Big Show.

The announcers bring up AJ Lee has retired.

Brad Maddox has returned, Kane is upset. Rollins questions Kane. Kane brings up helping him win Money in the Bank ladder match. Rollins needs to defend his title, like a true champion.

Rollins brings up maybe it’s best for business Kane should just step down as Director of Operations.

Rollins brings up HHH and Stephanie wouldn’t like this. Kane reminds Rollins he is in charge tonight, and this is what’s best for business.

Kane is putting Seth Rollins in a match, next.

The announcers bring up Brock Lesnar taking out Michael Cole. JBL and Booker are here, even after JBL had surgery.

We see footage from last week.

Rollins is in action, next.

Rollins Vs Neville.

Oh my god, this match is going to be awesome.

But first, Rollins wants to introduce us to Neville. But Neville doesn’t speak. Rollins understands though. He too was a rookie, so he is nervous. How about you just sit this one out.

Neville decks him, and the match is on.

Rollins defeated Neville with a Curb Stomp.

After the match, Rollins gives him another Curb Stomp for good measure.

Tonight, Triple Threat match with Orton Vs Reigns Vs Ryback, with winner being Number One Contender at Extreme Rules.

John Cena’s United States Title Open Challenge is next.

Cena is giving us his usual, he is defending this US Title with honor. He tells us that Austin has declared today WWE Day.

But today was MLB Opening Day, and that stands more merit.

But anyway, The Champ Is Here.

Cena is giving someone a chance to go one on one with the face who runs this place.

This title is about opportunity, so why not have a US Title match tonight?

But to anyone who does walk out and face Cena, if they think it will be easy, they are dreaming. So if you come to the ring, you better step up, or else you will be stepped on.

And if you want some, come get some.

It’s Stardust.

Cena wins in another good match, pinning Stardust with an Attitude Adjustment.

Triple Threat match is set tonight with Reigns Vs Ryback Vs Orton.

Tonight, Reigns faces Big Show.

Also tonight, Ryback faces Luke Harper.

The Bella Twins are next.

They are facing Paige and Naomi.

Naomi and Paige win when Brie rams into Nikki, and Paige takes care of Brie when Naomi pins Nikki.

Primetime Players now give us an imitation of The Ascension.

Basically they agree with us all, they suck.

Tonight, Damien Mizdow Vs The Miz but next, Ryback Vs Luke Harper.

Ryback wins in relatively easy fashion here with Shellshock.

Later tonight, Ryback has an opportunity if he wins the Triple Threat, he faces Rollins at Extreme Rules.

Renee Young is with New Day.

They are disappointed in the fans reaction. Either they clap, or they snap.

It’s The New Day Vs The Lucha Dragons.

Lucha Dragons defeated New Day. Sin Cara pins Kofi with a Swanton.

Tyson Kidd and Cesaro are watching backstage.

Reigns Vs Big Show is next.

Reigns wins the match with a spear.

Kane is on the phone, the divas approach Kane and offer a Divas Battle Royal to determine the Number One Contender to the Divas Title.

Kane agrees, but wants everyone out of the room.

Sheamus speaks, next.

Renee Young approaches Reigns.

He has momentum for tonight’s Triple Threat match. He agrees Big Show couldn’t stop him, wait until we see what he does next.

Here comes Sheamus.

Sheamus wants us to see what a real man looks like.

There aren’t too many real men in WWE. He has always been a wariior filled with insects.

Our heroes don’t belong here, because all they do is give false hope.

He is talking about Dolph Ziggler.

He is an insect that needs weeded out.

We see a Celtic Warrior, standing at 6’6, 285 pounds.

Oh, but here comes someone bigger, Mark Henry.

Sheamus gives us a Brogue Kick for the win.

They show us The Rock and Ronda Rousey Vs HHH and Stephanie McMahon segment at Wrestlemania, again.

I have to tell you, if they DON’T have a plan to give us more with these four, then why continue to show it?

Triple Threat match with Reigns Vs Orton Vs Ryback tonight.

For the second week in a row, they tell us that Smackdown’s main event is Ziggler and Bryan Vs Barrett and Sheamus.

Now we hear from Bray Wyatt.

You know who you are.

Bray is talking to him. He is all about dedication, yet he can’t compete against the one thing, fear of failure. He knows the depth of his skin the fear of failure is the one thing he can’t fathom.

Does he have his attention now? He is the new face of fear.

Renee Young is with Ryback.

Big things are ahead of Ryback, and if he wins this match tonight, he will move on to big things against Seth Rollins, at Extreme Rules. Randy Orton and Roman Reigns, tonight you will find out how hungry Ryback is.

Feed me more.

The Miz Vs Damien Mizdow is now.

The Miz wins with a roll of the tights, stealing the victory.

Renee Young is standing by with “The Viper” Randy Orton.

Orton has the momentum since he defeated Rollins at Wrestlemania. Randy brings up having nothing against Ryback or Reigns, but he will do what he does best, and win the match. Then face Rollins, and take the WWE World Title from him.

Triple Threat match is next.

Orton wins with a RKO, pinning Ryback after The Authority takes out Roman Reigns out of the picture. Ryback takes out J & J Security, but Orton takes the opportunity.

The night ends however with a Curb Stomp by Rollins.

Seth Rollins Vs Randy Orton headlines Extreme Rules.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Raw was okay, nothing horrible, but not a slam dunk either, on the very same night of the NCAA Basketball Championship.

I did enjoy Rollins Vs Neville, and Rollins was fantastic tonight, carrying the show.

But wow, was the announcing bad. JBL and Booker T carried the show, but Byron Saxton showed no emotion, it seemed like he was just repeating everything Cole was telling him on headset, and Byron just said it. That has to change.

But this was Raw. No Daniel Bryan, for some reason, and no Dolph Ziggler either. Raw was just there.

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

Impact Wrestling 4/3/15….Bell To Bell

Tonight, Impact will give us 3 big matches to end feuds.  We will see Eric Young face Bobby Roode.  We will also see Bram Vs Magnus.  And for the TNA Heavyweight Title, it will be Angle Vs Lashley II.

Impact Wrestling is on now.

Josh Matthews and Taz welcome us to the show. We will also see a Knockout match, with Gail Kim Vs Angelina Love.

But we kick things off with Eric Young Vs Bobby Roode, in a Submissions Match.

All good things must come to an end as EY said. And tonight, he puts the final coffin in Roode’s career. No bells, no whistles, tonight, he becomes a winner and stops Roode’s pathetic career.

Roode has the mic now, coming out.

Roode brings up what EY said, history is written by winners. Allow Roode to give EY a history lesson. Young cost Roode his World Title. But he has beaten EY in steel cage matches, and Last Man Standing. EY said that he will make sure Roode never gets another title shot again, well Roode is here to say he won’t let EY breathe.

Young challenges Roode to a Submission Match, so he can me Roode tap.

Roode accepts and says he will make Young Roode’s bitch.

Match is set now.

Eric Young wins the match with a Figure Four, but Roode had made EY tap out seconds before, with a Crossface. But the ref had his back turned.

Our main event is Angle Vs Lashley, and we see champion and challenger enter the building earlier tonight.

Let the hunting begin.

The Wolves come out, with Eddie Edwards on crutches.

JB is with The Wolves, asking about an update from Eddie.

He injured himself at a One Night Only PPV taping. They try to take chances, but this time it caught up to them. He landed hard, and knew something had popped.

After checked out in the hospital, Eddie fractured his heel, it more or less broke in half. And unfortunately, Eddie will be out for a long time and The Wolves cannot defend their championships.

JB wants to know if there are any plans to have a new Tag Team partner with Davey.

The two are family. Through the training, through living in the horrible dojos, they hunt as a pack.

So without Eddie Edwards, there is no Wolves. Without The Wolf Nation, there is no Wolves. And without Davey Richards, there is no Wolves.

Davey tells us The Wolves aren’t going to be teaming for a while, and he puts the titles on the turnbuckle.

However, when his brother comes back, they will hunt whoever the Tag Team Champs are, and no matter what happens, they may get beat down, but with The Wolf Nation behind them, this hunt never dies.

Tonight, Angle Vs Lashley for the World Title. Bell to bell.

Christy Hemme is with Lashley. His motivation is to get back up, and fight for the title. He faces Kurt for the first time 2 weeks ago, and he beat him. But he fight for the chance to get another title opportunity, and Kurt, Lashley will get his title back.

Knockout match is up next, Gail Kim Vs Angelina Love.

After Angelina tells Gail she is better than Gail since she is a 6-time Knockout Champion. We heard Josh and Taz debate this topic about champions, Gail wins with Eat Defeat.

Cross promotional time, with the crew from “Ghost Asylum” checks in with James Storm and his Revolution.

We will find out if Storm’s barn is haunted.

Okay, Magnus Vs Bram video is playing.

Bram Vs Magnus in a Last Man Standing match, now.

Magnus picks up the win and during the match, Mickie James shows up to cheer Magnus on. Bram was about to strike Mickie James, but James Storm comes out and tells him he doesn’t hit a woman.

But through it all, Magnus wins the match with 3 Powerbombs, and a Rock Bottom.

Kurt Angle is with JB, he talks about the first match he had with Lashley was a dream match. He trained for the match harder than he had trained for anything, including the Olympics. But this time, he is defending his World Title, something he hasn’t had in 3 years. So this will be a war.

More “Ghost Asylum” promo.

Moments ago, James Storm defends Mickie James, and Magnus beat Bram.

During the break, Magnus checked to see if Mickie was okay, he saw James Storm and asked what that was about. James tells Magnus he knew he was busy with Bram, and he was looking out for an old friend. Good to see you again, Mickie.

Angle Vs Lashley II, we see footage from their previous match.

We get the big title entrance again, with challenger and champion walking into the guerilla position. I love that.

Kurt retains his title with a rollup pinfall, but it seemed Lashley had his shoulder up, but referee Brian Hebner had his back to it, and counted to three.

After the match, Lashley shook hands with Angle, but very frustrated and we end the show with Kurt celebrating.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

It seems like TNA is switching gears here with their big feuds, which is a good thing. I just didn’t like we didn’t have a clear winner here in the main event. Does that mean we will get an Angle-Lashley III? We can hope, because these two had another good match.

We also had 3 big matches, and a new situation with Storm and Magnus. Will this lead to a feud?

Also this seems like an ending to Young Vs Roode feud. They had another good match that set the tone tonight.

It’s a shame The Wolves were hurt again here, they are 3-time Tag Team Champions, but 2 of their 3 reigns were cut short, due to injuries.

Where do the Tag Titles go from here?

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 3/30/15….The Night After

After an epic Wrestlemania, where we have a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and his name is Seth Rollins.  We are live in San Jose, California, where we can expect a big show.  What’s in store?

Raw is now.

Here Comes The Pain!!

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman. And I am the Advocate of the most non-PG ass kicker of the PG Era, Brock Lesnar.

So let’s talk about what happened last night.

His client did what he was supposed to do, and take the beast Samoan and annihilated him. His client, Brock Lesnar gave the Number One Contender to the World Title suplex after suplex, after suplex, after suplex. Or, as his client would say Suplex City, bitch.

But Roman Reigns would take all of these suplexes, and smiled, wanting more. Reigns can sink or swim, but his client almost respects him.

So then, Lesnar was ready to go out to dinner, and he gave Roman a F-5, but then a slimy, opportunist Seth Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase, and the World Title match turned into a Triple Threat match.

So then Seth hits a Curb Stomp on everyone in sight, pins the challenger, not the champion and became one of the least deserving WWE World Champions.

Now, Heyman’s father was an attorney, he can get a juncture, and make the World Title disappear, and hand back the title to Brock, the rightful owner.

But his client hates lawyers, so let’s just say his client wants to revoke his title shot….TONIGHT!!!

But here comes Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie tells us we all want to move on from what was a great Wrestlemania.

We get a Ronda Rousey chant.

Stephanie informs us that Seth Rollins is the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and he made an appearance on “The Today Show” and did a fine job of it. The very same show Brock was scheduled to be a part of, but he lost last night. Seth has not made it back yet from that trip to New York, but she is sure that when he does return, he will be a fighting champion and Brock can have his match.

Heyman gives us a spoiler then. After the match tonight, we will have an announcement, and it won’t be from Lilian Garcia, it will be from Heyman himself. Your winner….AND NEW WWE World Heavyweight Champion, BRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOCKKKKKKKKKKKK LESNAR!!!

Also tonight, John Cena is putting his United States Title up in an open challenge, and next…. IC Title match, Daniel Bryan Vs Dolph Ziggler.

WWE Raw is starting off on fire tonight.

Daniel Bryan wins the match with a kick, Bad News Barrett who was doing commentary attacked Daniel after the match.

But here comes Sheamus to make his return, sporting a mohawk.

Barrett retrieves, and Sheamus then gives Daniel a Brogue Kick.

He now goes after Ziggler, slapping him around but Dolph fights back. Sheamus gives him White Noise for good measure.

The fans give Sheamus a “You look stupid” chant, and Sheamus loves it.

And all Sheamus can say he is back.

Tonight, it is going to happen, Seth Rollins Vs Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Title.

Sting speaks immediately after Raw on WWE Network.

And next, we look back at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremonies.

A look back at the WWE Hall of Fame.

8-man tag action now of Cesaro, Kidd, and The Ascension taking on The New Day and The Lucha Dragons.

Dragons and New Day win when Calista hit Salina Death Sault, pinning Viktor.

Seth Rollins is here, and we see Lesnar backstage. Heyman tells him he’s here, so let’s go.

Adrian Neville is debuting in WWE, a great video is being shown of him.

Lesnar Vs Rollins, for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is now.

Or is it?

Rollins just spoke with Stephanie McMahon before he got here, and he is feeling a bit jet lagged. And his foot is hurting him from Curb Stomping 2 different men. He is a fighting champion, he just isn’t fighting tonight.

Brock has other ideas.

Anything Rollins had, Brock didn’t feel it. He fought Rollins, and Seth ran away. Lesnar took out J & J Security, flipped the announce table over. Michael Cole went to calm down Brock, Lesnar took him in the ring, and F-5’d Cole.

My Gawd!!

He has a cameraman, and here comes Stephanie McMahon.

She tells Brock he will get his title match, just calm down. But Brock won’t listen, and hits a F-5.

Stephanie suspends Lesnar indefinitely.

Orders Brock to get out of her ring, now.

Brock hits another F-5 on the cameraman, and leaves.

Lesnar just nailed Cole?

We come back and see all of the announcers being tended to by EMTs, and we see what just happened.

Stephanie walks to the back, Renee Young wants a word from her. Stephanie confirmed she suspended Lesnar. Will his suspension affect the Title match?

Stephanie is going to have to fine Brock Lesnar, and if he thinks he can go back to MMA, he signed a contract with WWE. And you know what that means? Stephanie owns that son of a bitch.

Tonight, John Cena has an open challenge for the United States Championship.

Byron Saxton takes over, as we see Stardust go one on one against Damien Mizdow.

Mizdow wins the match with Skull Crushing Finale, and The Miz attacks Mizdow from behind, telling him he is nothing. Miz made him.

After Raw tonight, exclusively on WWE Network, we will hear from Sting.

Next, footage from last night’s Wrestlemania with The Rock and Ronda Rousey.

We see still footage of an angle involving The Rock and Ronda Rousey Vs HHH and Stephanie McMahon.

But now we see footage of WWE week all over.

AxelMania is still running wild.

Adrian Neville is here.

He is going by Neville now, and he did not disappoint. The Red Arrow, 450 splash. Match is done.

Next, we get John Cena’s open challenge.

Byron Saxton is by himself, because Brock Lesnar took out Michael Cole and the entire broadcast team tonight, when Seth Rollins ran away from Lesnar.

The United States Champion John Cena comes out.

Cole has a vertical Fracture it seems.

The fans are not impressed with Cena, it seems.

The fans are greeting him with John Cena Sucks chants to his tune. But The Champ Is Here!!

Cena is out here to fight. He wanted this United States Championship so badly, the fans deserved a title match tonight. He issued a challenge to anyone from Rusev to Brooklyn Brawler.

Saxton belts out here comes Rusev, but it’s Dean Ambrose instead.

Cena wins a great match with an Attitude Adjustment.

Ni shame in losing to John Cena in this kind of match here.Jerry “The King” Lawler joins Byron in commentary, which was needed.

After the match, Ambrose is upset he lost, but they two men showed respect. Maybe down the road, we will see another match between these two?

Renee Young is standing by the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins.

What is Seth’s thoughts on Lesnar being suspended?

Lesnar deserves that punishment, he went after employees, and hopes he gets a 7 figure fine. But for last night, he earned the opportunity to cash in on the title, and he did it when both Rollins and Lesnar least expected. But let’s focus on the current, Rollins is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and he will hold it for a long time.

Randy Orton shows up, reminding Rollins he beat him at Wrestlemania last night. And he beat him with an inch of his life. Since one of his problems left, how about giving Orton a title shot?

Big Show and Kane show up, so Rollins issues a challenge tonight. Rollins has a problem, but Randy has 3. So how about finding 2 friends and facing the 3 of them tonight?

6-Diva tag match is next.

AJ, Paige, and Naomi facing The Bella Twins and Natalya.

Nikki is pinned again when she runs into her sister, and Naomi hits a Rear View.

New Number One Contender to Divas Title?

Earlier tonight, it was set for Lesnar Vs Rollins, but the match never took place. And Brock snapped.

Orton is backstage, Ryback shows up and says he has Orton’s back tonight.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, we will see Ziggler and Bryan Vs Barrett and Sheamus. We will also see a Star-Studded Smackdown with Cena, Orton, and Roman Reigns at the show.

Goldust Vs Rusev, now.

Rusev wins with the Accolade, and sadly, no Lana.

6-Man tag match is up next. Who will team with Orton and Ryback?

It’s Roman Reigns.

Here we go.

Reigns, Orton, and Ryback all win with a RKO, followed by a spear to pin Kane.

After the match, Reigns locks eyes on Rollins, as the show ends.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A fantastic first half of the show, then an okay finish. So overall, it was very good. Highlight of the main event were the chants the crowd gave us, including the wave. A couple of times, Big Show and Rollins had to laugh at some of the things they were saying, as Mania after Raw usually is.

I do think however they should have ended the show with Brock destroying everything.

But I will say this again, Cena Vs Ambrose was very good, as was Ziggler Vs Bryan. We also saw the Raw debut of Neville, who will be exciting to watch.

By the way, Sting’s interview after Raw was interesting. He more or less said last night was a joy, and he’d love to do more, it’s all in WWE’s court. Fans wanted Sting Vs Taker. I also would love to see Cena Vs Sting.

Why not?

Give me your thoughts of the show.

WWE Wrestlemania 31 3/29/15

We are 15 minutes away from the Wrestlemania Kick-Off show.  2 big matches are set in the show.  Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, and Fatal 4-Way match for the Tag Team Titles.

2 matches are set in the Kick-Off show. Fatal 4-Way match for the Tag Team Titles. Also, Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

This could be a history moment for any of these wrestlers to win.

Time to go to the Social Media Lounge, with Tom Phillips. Use #Wrestlemania to talk. In the second hour, we will be joined by Hall of Famer Lita.

Rusev Vs Cena match is profiled now.

Rusev is backstage, Lana approaches him saying she would never show compassion again. Rusev brings up tonight, he crushes Cena, and America dies.

I guess all is forgiven.

Tonight, Cena will face Rusev for the United States Title.

John Cena on Kimmel this past week is being shown.

Another match that we will see is HHH Vs Sting.

Eden is backstage, hoping to get a word from HHH.

There could always be a possibility of Team Besties Vs The Bellas someday. Hmmmmm.

We hear from Jon Gruden and his analysis of Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal contenders.

Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal is set now.

Curtis Axel is eliminated. Such a shame.

Big Show wins Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Ryback was in the Final 4, but the story here is Damien Sandow finally stood up to The Miz, and eliminated him. But at the end of the match, Big Show eliminates Sandow, and wins the big one.

We are just 10 minutes away from Wrestlemania.

The IC Title Ladder Match will kick off Wrestlemania, and we see a video package of that.

Daniel Bryan found a way to win the IC Title for the first time in his career. It came down to he and Ziggler, who traded blows. But Daniel was able to get Ziggler off the ladder, and make history.

Orton Vs Rollins is up now.

Orton wins with a RKO, when Rollins was trying a Curb Stomp. A good match between these two, and I think they are doing this because Rollins is cashing in on Money in the Bank tonight.

Just a hunch.

“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey is in attendance.

Sting Vs HHH is now.

HHH just gave us an amazing Terminator entrance.

Here we go.

HHH wins in a No DQ match where we see HHH and DX, Vs Sting and NWO all face off. But Hunter uses the top issue of the sledge-hammer, and pins Sting.

What a fun match this was.

At the end of the match, HHH wants to face Sting one more time, and this time to shake his hand/

The two men embrace, and this was a moment here.

Some new shows are coming to WWE Network, some sound good, others do not. But they are trying.

Marie Menonous is interviewing Daniel Bryan. All of the former IC Champions congratulate Daniel.

Damn!!

Travis Barker, Skylar Grey, and Kid Ink all perform the Wrestlemania theme song.

The halftime portion of the show is complete. The Wrestlemania panel is having a good time. Now divas action with The Bellas Vs The Dream Team of AJ Lee and Paige.

AJ and Paige win the match with AJ making Nikki tap out to Black Widow.

It’s been one full year now since Paige debuted in WWE. What a run she has had, her first Wrestlemania moment.

Now we get the Hall of Fame moment. A fun night, seeing that show. And they are all out on the stage.

John Cena Vs Rusev is next.

Cena wins the United States Title when Rusev ran into Lana, who looked worried for Rusev. It is turned to an AA and Cena wins. Rusev picks up his first loss.

Rusev is screaming at Lana for costing him the match as she is being tended to.

The Wrestlemania Kick-Off panel is here, and we see what happened earlier today, with Cesaro and Tyson Kidd retaining their titles.

We also saw Big Show win Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Stephanie McMahon and HHH are here to announce that they set an outdoor attendance record of over 76,000 people.

Stephanie now completely heels the crowd and says this wouldn’t be possible without her. And of course her husband.

HHH tells us the truth hurts, because not only did he beat Sting tonight, he felt that he beat anyone that has been against them. He feels so good about that, it feels he beat all 76,166 fans here. And he feels like he beat millions more, watching WWE Network.

HHH owned Sting, just like he owns every single superstar and diva in the back. And he owns us, because at the end of the day, The Authority always wins.

If ya smell what The Rock is cooking….

Here comes The Rock.

The crowd is loving this moment, and frankly, so is Stephanie McMahon.

You don’t own them, and you sure don’t own The Rock. What you fail to see is The Rock is an East Bay boy. The Rock was born in The East Bay.

The Rock sees it, they have two choices. HHH can go in the back and dress like Terminator again, or they can create a Wrestlemania moment right here, right now. One of the biggest rivalries of all time. The pie eating, jabroni beating, kicking HHH’s ass until he can’t stop.

HHH speaks now, and says they had a hell of a rivalry. He remembers kicking his ass throughout most of it, so he has nothing to prove to The Rock.

Just like how The Rock left his heart in San Francisco, it’s clear HHH left his balls in Stamford, Connecticut.

Stephanie tells Rock he has to feed his own ego, because he knows The Rock would be nothing without The McMahon family.

He can talk about “High Chief” Peter Maivia. He can talk about Rocky Johnson, or Dwayne Johnson, but he wouldn’t be anything without Vince McMahon, Vince McMahon Jr. or Stephanie McMahon.

Oddly enough, no mention of Shane McMahon, which the fans picked up on.

Rock said that it’s funny she brings up Johnson, because she wouldn’t be running this place without Vince’s Johnson.

Stephanie slapped Rock, and ordered him to get out of the ring. This is HER company.

She berates him, while he leaves. But Rock sees someone in the crowd that is willing to fight.

Ronda Rousey.

Rock introduces us to Ronda. While Rock wouldn’t hit a woman, she would.

Stephanie tells Rock they are friends, she was there watching her match at last year’s Summerslam.

Rock reminds Steph that Ronda kicks ass, and Steph says if this was a MMA ring, she would agree, but this is a squared circle, this is HER ring.

Ronda tells Steph that her ring is any ring.

Now Stephanie berates Ronda, and Rock reminds her that the look Ronda is giving is right before she whips some ass.

HHH now gets into it, and The Rock fights with HHH, with Ronda giving HHH a hip toss.

Now Stephanie dares Ronda to take action, and Ronda twists her arm, until Stephanie pleads for Ronda to let go.

Ronda flings Steph out of HER ring. What we just saw was a Wrestlemania Moment of The Rock and Ronda Rousey whipping Steph and HHH.

We go from that moment, to this moment.

Bray Wyatt Vs The Undertaker is next.

Undertaker grew out his hair a bit, and looked in tremendous shape. He defeated Bray with a Tombstone Piledriver. We had a segment here when Bray was doing his spider walk, and Taker sat up, doing his Taker sit.

Just an incredible moment.

Chris Jericho is bringing his podcast, on Monday April 6th, after Raw, on WWE Network. That should be fun.

Our main event, Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns is now.

Wow, an incredible ending that felt very, very rushed.

These two men beat the hell out of each other. Reigns took 10 suplexes, Lesnar took 3 Superman Punches. We had 3 spears, 3 F5’s, but nobody was pinned.

Then…

We hear Seth Rollins music, and he cashes in on MITB breifcase, and turns this into a Triple Threat match.

So….

we have a new WWE Champion, when Seth Rollins hits a Curbstomp, and pins Reigns.

That is how we end the show, with Seth Rollins celebrating the title win, and tomorrow night on Raw should be something else.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A very fun 6 hours that didn’t seem to drag at all, and every match lived up to its billing. I just wonder though what they will do with Reigns. I like the guy, but there were many boos for him, and no matter what happens, they hated any offensive move he made. Do they turn him heel?

And how pissed off with Brock be tomorrow night on Raw?

So much happened, and the night after Mania usually has fun Raw’s too, so we’ll see where we go from here.

What did you think of the show? Send me your thoughts, and we’ll watch Raw tomorrow night.

WWE Hall of Fame 3/28/15

Tonight, on the even of Wrestlemania, WWE honors the ones who have paved the way for them.  Randy “Macho Man” Savage, Kevin Nash, Alundra Blaze, Arnold Schwarzennegar, Rikishi, The Bushwackers, Tatsumi Fujinama, and Larry Zbyszko, with Connor “The Crusher” Michalek will receive The Warrior Award.

The ceremony begins in 5 minutes.

It began with one man, Andre The Giant. 2 decades later, it has expanded into the biggest names in the industry. Icons, legends, larger than life personalities.

We are live in Santa Clara, California. Jerry “The King” Lawler is our host of the event.

We kick the show off with Rikishi.

King introduces us to The Uso’s, who are inducting their father.

Jimmy informs us that they are from the Bay area, and they are proud to be home. They are here to be honoring their father.

Rikishi developed many different characters, some worked, some didn’t. But the one character they remember isn’t the athletic ability, or the blond locks. It was the thong. What was that? But that put them through college. That put food on their tables. Bought Christmas gifts. And they never recieved the Stinkface. The ones that did aren’t laughing. They pointed out to Booker T, which was funny.

But here is the man who was a hero to them, Rikishi.

Kishi is sporting his ring. Every wrestler dreams of being in the WWE Hall of Fame, but that dream has been a reality. He has come from one of the hardest working families, not just in WWE, but wrestling history, the Anoa’i family, otherwise known as The Samoan Family.

For 50 years, one part of the Anoi’a family has been a part of the WWE. Including “High Chief” Peter Maivia, The Wild Samoans, Afa, The late, great Yokozuna, The Rock, Umaga, The Uso’s, and Roman Reigns.

Kishi thanks his father, and wishes that his mother was here witnessing this. He thanks his children, and the most important part of him, his wife. Kishi thanks the fans as well. Without them, he wouldn’t be here.

Kishi feels like his life has come full circle, he is now training with his brother and David “Gangrel” Heath. He gives a shout out to one of his students, Rusev and wishes The Uso’s good luck tomorrow at Wrestlemania.

For 31 years, he has been a part of this business. He remembers all of those moments, every birthdays he has missed, every fan that he has entertained. Every character he has portrayed. Every moment he has stepped through the curtain, he remembers every Stinkface. But he will remmber this moment he has with us, most than all.

Kishi is honored to be inducted into the 2015 Hall of Fame, where he was born, and where he was raised.

Rikishi speaks Samoan, and sends a message to his family.

Now comes the moment we all have waited for. Rikishi is dancing with his 2 boys.

Our next inductee is “The Living Legend” Larry Zbszko.

Bruno Sammartino is inducting Larry.

Bruno talks about the history he has with Larry, even beginning when Larry was ready to be trained as a wrestler coming to Bruno’s home. Bruno encouraged him to keep working on his trade, keep working on wrestling. Bruno promised Larry he would get him into pro wrestling, if he gets a college degree. Zbyszko worked on that, and Bruno broke him into the business.

After Bruno was impressed with Larry’s style, he talked to Vince McMahon, Sr. to bring him in. Larry was a very ambitious man, wanted to be at the top, and gave Bruno the idea of turning on him and the heat he recieved was tremendous. Vince Sr. got behind him, and the two would proceed to sell out just about every major arena.

Larry wrestled over 20 years, he decided to call it quits, and contribute as a broadcaster for another 10 years in WCW. Ladies and gentlemen, Larry Zbyszko.

Larry’s dream since he was 16 years old was to be a professional wrestler. His dream is to be just like his hero, Bruno Sammartino. Larry remembers going to wrestling shows with his Dad at 16 years old. His mother knew what Larry wanted to do, so she had a listing of where Bruno’s kids were at, and Bruno’s home address. So Larry kept driving by there, but could never see him. Until one day, he saw Bruno standing outside by his pool, getting a suntan. Larry couldn’t help it, he got out of a car, and approached Bruno.

Larry tripped over Bruno’s hedges. He got up, told Bruno he is a big fan of his and his goal is to be a professional wrestler. Bruno started his career out, and that era was unforgettable. He drove down the road with greats as Captain Lou Albano, Andre The Giant, The Valliant Brothers, and on and on. But he can’t help but think what would have happened if Bruno had not helped him. He just doesn’t know why Bruno helped him.

This is amazing.

Larry just seems very overwhelmed, and emotional about this.

Bruno was very gracious to get into the ring with him, when Larry’s career was frustrating. Again, it’s amazing when Bruno could have kicked him out if his yard, but he didn’t. He can’t explain why.

Going up and down the roads, then all of a sudden, destiny took over. And he drove everyone around him crazy.

Larry talks about Bruno’s career, when he gave up wrestling and took up commentary after Bruno broke his neck. But something was missing, and off they went.

The crowd is showing respect, thanking Larry when he is overwhelmed by this moment.

Larry can’t express evenough thank you to Bruno, but from the bottom of his heart, he thanks Bruno for giving him an opportunity, when he didn’t have to do it. Another man he wants to thank dearly is Mr. Vince McMahon, Sr. He drove the man nuts, he still believed in Larry’s idea, and rented Shea Stadium anyway. He gave birth to a new era of wrestling, paving way to national broadcasts, and Pay Per Views.

47 glorious years ago, Larry found a rabbit hole, in a shed of hedges. And Bruno held the door open of that rabbit hole, and he still doesn’t understand why. But here he is, Bruno holds the door open again as Larry leaves the rabbit hole. And he is wearing the very same ring his hero is wearing. And now, he gets to be a big wrestling fan again.

Now that this dream is over, he gets to go home and become a wrestling fan. And he wants to say something to the wrestling fans he has wanted to say for a long time. Without the power, there would never be a dream. Larry has felt the love of the millions of fans chanting his name, and we get Larry chants.

Mean Gene Okerlund announces him as “The Living Legend”, just like his hero. And he has felt the wrath of fans throwing objects, he has been shot at in Albany, New York, and he has been stabbed in the ass by the world’s greatest fans in the world. He hopes our dreams come true too.

Our next induction is Alundra Blaze.

Natalya is here to induct Alundra.

There are those women who want to be princesses, some who want to work, and some who just want to kick ass.

Alundra was a woman ahead of her time. She was a revolutionalry, and a trail blazer. She took the WWE Women’s Title, and threw it in the trash on WCW TV. It was the start of what is now called “The Monday Night War”. It was a courageous act by a woman who was revolutionary.

When she found out she was going to induct Alundra, she had to tell someone and happened to talk to Arn Anderson.

A funny story Arn told her. She was working on a promo and all of the wrestlers were waiting. Alundra is a perfecionist, and Arn wanted to do the promo, then go work out. Words were exchanged and Arn was running away, with Alundra chasing him with her heels.

Yeah, I bet you didn’t see this coming did you? Neither did Alundra.

She talks about how legendary The Hart Family is, and is honored to be a part of the Hall of Fame. After 21 years, what took them so long?

A stuntman brought her into the business, introducing her to Eddie Sharkey. Hence the word Sharkey. She started wrestling with zero money, and her car repossessed. That’s what you do Madusa.

But then she met Wahoo McDaniel, and he introduced her to AWA. She worked with Sherri Martel, learned her trade, worked all over the world, which led her to compete in WCW, and WWE.

Madusa brings up the one woman who paved the way for all of the women, The Fabulous Moolah. She wanted to thank Vern Gagne, “Mr. perfect” Curt Hennig, Diamond Dallas Page, who should be a future Hall of Famer someday.

Now she pays homeage to her Japanese roots, with Bull Nakano, and so many other greats she shared the ring with for 3 years.

Her newfound family, all watching her on WWE Network, for just $9.99 a month. Her motorcross family.

She brings up people who have worked with her, doing their part to with her, people like Evan Kourageous, who had the stones to put her over and lose the Crusierweight Title. Lelani Kai, Heidi Lee Morgan.

She wants to thank Paul Heyman, her Dangerous Alliance members. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Arn Anderson, “Beatiful” Bobby Eaton, Larry Zbyszko, and of course, the late, great “Ravishin” Rick Rude.

She is honored to be a part of the same class as Randy “Macho Man” Savage. Team Madness, with Nora Greenwald, Stephanie Bowers. She wants to thank WWE, for giving them this platform.

She wants to thank her husband, who is currently employed, but they arranged for him to be here, for this occassion.

Incredible moment here.

She wants the current armed forces members to stand up and get recognized.

Now let’s get to some fun shit, which was bleeped.

Now, let’s address the elephant in the room….The Title.

She was sitting on the toilet, when she recieved a call from Eric Bischoff. He called to offer her a contract, and she unknowingly dropped the first bomb in the Monday Night Wars.

When he first suggested the idea, she didn’t want to do it, but she did it for one reason, job security. WCW wanted to do it to get WWE’s attention, and they did.

Forever she is known as the “bitch” that dropped the title in the trash, and she has moved on from it. She owns that moment, and has moved on. So shall we.

So we have Natalya bring out a trash can. It’s filled with bra and panties, some good JR’s BBQ sauce. Bischoff’s book, and she is still friends with him, and ahh yes, the WWE Divas Title.

Madusa is the current Divas Champion, for over 20 years. She drives a truck, and has been a 2-time Motorcross Champion. The only woman who has 2 major titles in a male dominated sport.

Some may call her Madusa, some may call her Alunda Blayze.

That was an awesome speech there.

Next is Connor “The Crusher”.

We see the revealing Warrior statue, and now we present the Warrior Reward to someone who shows us spirit, and fight. Showing us a true hero, and that award this year goes to Connor “The Crusher” Mihalek.

Oh wow.

Conor was a victim of Pediatric Cancer, and he passed away at the age of 8. He will always be the biggest WWE fan.

Warrior’s family will get an opportunity to present this award, which in itself is very special they share this moment too.

Last year, her husband, Warrior was honored and she was watching on. She was proud of her husband, proud to be that should she had when he cried, but most of all, she was honored to be his wife.

Even in the days she lost him, she felt she had to empower a Warrior woman, and that is what she did. That strength sustained herself, and her two daughters. She thanks the people who have helped her family over the years.

Such a moving and touching speech, words can’t describe. But she thanks her daughters for being them, and allowing her to be their mom.

She thanks her neighbors, for helping out. Also thanks the legion of warriors. They have helped them through this, and she loves them.

Thank you to WWE Universe, to WWE Divas, Superstars, and Corporate Division. This is like a family, and she appreicates that.

She thanks her family, she thanks Paul and Stephanie, and so many other people who have helped her take that step forward, which is what we are going to do now.

Connor was such an amazing kid, and he is the very definition of what a Warrior is supposed to be.

And while her husband and Connor have stepped into parts unkown, their lives were ultimate.

She challenges us to make a donation to Connor’s Care, in honor of Warrior. We can help fight Cancer. If we can raise $1 million, she might do something crazy, run to the ring, shake the ropes, and maybe even body slam someone. I couldn’t hear the person’s name, because the feed kicked out, but I am thinking it’s Hulk Hogan.

She is kidding, of course.

She introduces us to Daniel Bryan, who will induct Connor.

Daniel is trying to control the crowd, because this isn’t about him. What he does on TV isn’t real, Connor was. Connor inspired him. When he first saw him on Youtube, and Connor issued to meet Daniel, he had to. And the moment he met him, he stole his heart. It’s not because he’s cute because he was super cute. Not because he was charismatic, because he was. But because what spoke to him from the start was his strength.

He was a kid who at 3 years old was diagnosed with brain cancer. He was going in and out of chemotherapy. And despite that, you wouldn’t see that in him. When you met him, you saw strength.

When he first met him, he wasn’t doing the yes chants, he was doing the no chants because the company did not want him to be cheered. Connor when he met Daniel said he doesn’t like the fans to chant yes. He asked why not, because Daniel doesn’t want him to.

Daniel asked Connor if he can put Daniel in the No Lock, and Connor responded by saying he can put everyone in a No Lock.

When he won the WWE World Title last year, at Wrestlemania 30, we had confetti throwing all over Daniel, but he could see Connor, sitting in the front row for over 4 hours with a big smile on his face. He saw his father holding him, and all he could see was a father holding his son.

We have Connor’s Cure, raising over $250,000 to cure cancer for little children. And he wants to honor Connor’s father, Steve Michalek.

Steve wants to thank Connor, because without his spirit, he wouldn’t be able to do this. He thanks Dana Warrior, for handling the death of her husband, and taking care of her 2 daughters through this. He wants to thank Daniel Bryan for caring so much for a boy that saw him as a hero. Connor was such a big WWE fan, and it started with Daniel.

Steve’s favorite superstar was Ultimate Warrior. He ran out, shook the ropes, and controlled the crowd. Just like Daniel does, they both control the crowd in their own way and what better person to receive The Warrior Spirit award than Connor.

He thanks Stephanie and Paul, who helped start Connor’s Cure. WWE Universe is making sure Connor’s Cure is here to stay, and making a difference. And thank to you the other families who are going through this too, and are sharing this together.

While Connor is here in spirit, he should be here, because he owned the room anywhere he went. He said what he thought, and was very confident.

He told Kane and Daniel Bryan, then WWE World Tag Team Champion, he and his brother are the real Tag Team Champions. He also had a chance to knock out “The King of Kings” HHH, and even had the knowledge to hold the leg when he pinned HHH. He had his Wrestlemania Moment, sharing a hug with the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, while confetti was all over.

The doctor told them Connor would not be able to make it through Wrestlemania, but he faced adversity, and surpassed that. He had become known for so long, that people would recognize him, even in the elevator. His dad would joke saying he has become a celebrity, and Connor just said to him “Dad, don’t you know I am going to be famous somday”.

Now he will be with the Connor’s Cure.

He brings out his little brother, Jackson to say one message.

He was Connor’s Tag Team Partner.

Very emotional speech.

Now come The Bushwackers.

We hear from John Laurinaitis, who are inducting them.

John started his career, as the flag bearer of The Sheepherders…AKA The Bushwackers.

They started the ring together for 35 years. They developed into many names. Dusty Rhodes brought them together with John, and they were roomates for one year. But shaped John’s career, and marched on to WWE.

They weren’t just brothers to John, they were family.

They came to the states in 1972, before I was born. Just incredible.

They had wonderful mates over the years, one of them was Killer Kowalski. They met him when he was in New Zealand, he suggested they come to the states.

They also wrestled for Stampede Wrestling, for Stu Hart. They had fond love for Stu and his entire family.

They worked for Jim Crockett Promotions, and from there was united with Laurinaitis. When it was time to move on, they went from The Sheepherders, to licking kids’ heads and fun loving Bushwackers.

They thank 4 people that had been truly special in their lives. “Rwody” Roddy Piper, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase, and “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan.

Three of the four men come up, and they shake thweir hand. Hacksaw wasn’t near the front line, but it was very touching. Especially funny to see Dibiase do The Bushwacker dance.

One more lick for each guy, to cap it all off.

Our next induction is Tatsumi Fujinami.

Ric Flair is inducting him, which brings the fans to their feet. Flair puts over Tatsumi. He comepted in WWE, back in 1979 and won the Jr. Heavyweight Title at the time.

Flair puts Vader over, who was in attendance. He was someone that wrestled Fujinami, knows what kind of a worker he was.

Here comes Fujinami, giving us many thanks for being a part of this.

A very short thank you, but very effective.

Our next inductee is Randy “Macho Man” Savage.

Hulk Hogan is inducting Savage.

Hogan brings up Wrestlemania 3, when Savage Vs Steamboat and Hogan Vs Andre headlined the show. He saw that match, and knew that the match was special. Savage was such a consumate professional, calling him at all hours of the day, suggesting they work out and talk about ideas for their matches, or ideas for their storylines.

He tells us that Savage got very intense in his promos when they faced each other, to make Hogan a better professional.

So Hogan brings out Lanny Poffo, Randy’s brother.

Lanny starts off with a poem, but goes on about Randy’s compassion for Special Olympics. He treated them all like his own kids. Randy would bring Lanny to some of these events, Lanny would do poems, while Randy in complete costume attire made those children’s day.

He thanks the men and women that were affected in Randy’s life. He thanks WWE for giving the fans an opportunity now to see Randy’s career on WWE Network, and know what kind of a performer he is. He talks about their mother doing a great job in Randy’s biography, and he thanks Randy’s wife for being such an inspiration on Randy, and keeping him such a happy man, before his death.

Our next induction is Arnold Schwarzennegar.

They show his bit he did on one of the first episodes of Smackdown, he decked HHH. Before this, we see a commerical of the upcoming Terminator: Genysis movie.

HHH is inducting Arnold.

He takes about that moment he had with Arnold, he wouldn’t miss punching him. His nose wasn’t always this big, it’s still swollen.

Arnold has such a great American story. He came to the states on a dream. Competed, and won bodybuilding contests, which led him to making movies, giving us such memorable lines that will be remember, forver. The question becomes what if that hadn’t been done. He never came to the states, we never would have known the impact. “I’ll be back” would never be the same.

HHH brings in Arnold.

Arnold puts over HHH, talking about how we went from a wrestler to a man running this entire company. In one of his first bodybuilding competitions, one of the judges was Bruno Sammartino. He also has a friendship with Mark Henry, going back to around 1996, when he was competing for Powerlifting. Wrestling has a big influence on life as well.

Arnold tackled the movies. “It’s not a tumor”, or “Get into the chopper” was a part of his life. But then he becamse the govenor of the state of Clifornia.

He puts Vince over, as well as the entire WWE Universe, and appreciates this very much.

Our last inductor is Kevin Nash, or Diesel.

HBK comes out to induct him. Shawn had a script, and he tore it pieces/ He touched on forst seeing him when Kev was with WCW, he was working as Vinnie Vegas then. It made Shawn laugh, and he was looking for a bodyguard, and talked to Rick Stiener about him. Kevin still had a WCW contract, but he told them he wanted out, and would go back to work at a strip club. The company gave him his release, and Diesel immedately took this to the other side of the building, faxed the relase to J.J. Dillon. He flew out to Albany, and the rest they say is history.

Shawn talks about their run, Vince saw how hot he was, and wanted to push Kev, giving him the title. It happened, the night Diesel beat Bob Backlund at a MSG show in 8 seconds. After the match, Nash took Shawn into a shower, and thanking him for giving him this opportunity. He is a true friend, and will always remember that.

Now, Nash and Hall would leave in a year and a half. But the truth is Nash was a pioneer. He got WCW to give them both guaranteed contracts. None of them would be here if it wasn’t for the two of them. He deserves this moment, and here comes Nash.

Nash brings up his Master Blaster days, making him shave his head, first day he got in the building. Then we go from that to Oz. His favorite time was with DDP, Vegas Connection. He always wanted to give up every now and then, but DDP told him he would be a big star, and to stay.

He got to WWE, he was always cool. Talking about drinking many beers for 23 straight nights. Vnce wanted to see him personally. Nash had expected to being fired, but in this case, Vince wanted to push Nash to the end.

They left WWE for one reason, guaranteed contract. The monsy they were making was ridiulous, but what could you do? Now, everyone has a guaranteed contract, and he likes to think he had a major reason behindt thay. He thanks for the men and women who have worked him, to make Nash better.

We also get another Kliq reunion to end the show on a good note.

WWE Monday Night Raw 3/23/15…The Final Push For Wrestlemania

We are 6 days away from Wrestlemania.  So expect a loaded show here, again.  Which makes it fun.  Whether we like the buildup or not, it’s still Wrestlemania.  We will hear the latest inductee to the Hall of Fame and if you don’t know, I won’t spoil it, but I did get a text this afternoon, which I hate, because I always wanted to know on the show, as opposed to earlier in the day.

We will see Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns have an in-ring confrontation, which should be good.

Raw is now.

We are in Los Angeles, a sold-out Staples Arena, where we will have a Face-To-Face with Reigns and Lesnar.

We will also see as our guest stars, Snoop Dogg and Bill Simmons.

We hear Sting’s music, but is he here?

Yes he is.

14 years ago today, WWE bought WCW. Oh, I remember that because I was at Raw, in Cleveland. Such an eerie night, and very surreal.

So this is what it feels like to kick off Raw? The crowd loves that, and as do I.

Sting has been known as the WCW “Soldier”, he has watched HHH gain power through manipulation and greed. He is not here to fight for WCW, he is here to take HHH down.

Enter Stephanie McMahon.

So this is what it feels like to be in the ring with The Stinger? The last holdout from WCW. Congratulations, he knows what it’s like to make it to the big-time. Soak it all up Sting.

Stephanie is the spoiled little brat that has had everything she wanted, served on a silver platter. But welcome Stephanie.

She can understand how Sting feels intimidated being in this ring. She is the daughter of the man who single-handedly ripped his company. He was a big fish in a very little pond, and when they bought WCW, they never heard from him. Stephanie compared Sting to a little dog, who is loyal to its owner, but at the end of the day, the dog is very stupid.

Didn’t Stephanie have a dog named Fifi, who liked to crap all over Chris Jericho?

Anyway, Sting is just a stupid dog who likes to paint his face up, and be a freak.

Sting liked that, and gave us a OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

She tried to slap him, but Sting caught the slap, and this brings out HHH.

HHH has his trusted sledge-hammer ready, but Sting has his bat. I mean really, did HHH think Sting wouldn’t use his trusted weapon with him?

So of course, HHH backs up, with Sting trying to bring him in.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show. They tell us that we get to vote for Randy Orton’s opponent tonight. Either Kane, Big Show, or Seth Rollins and J & J Security.

I truly hope the fans vote for Big Show, because I don’t want to see another handicap match. Besides, we will see it on Smackdown anyway.

AJ Lee will face one of the Bellas, I didn’t hear Cole say who she will face, but we heard the “Oh….oh….oh….need a day” or whatever that Diva theme is.

But next, it’s Dean Ambrose and R-Truth Vs Luke Harper and Stardust.

Ambrose and Truth won the match, with truth pinning Harper with What’s Up. Bad News Barrett was doing commentary.

Tonight, Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns will have a face-to-face tonight. And next, a profile on Roman Reigns.

Renee Young introduces the athletes who will be competing at this summer’s Special Olympics.

Roman Reigns interview is playing now.

This Sunday, it will be Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns.

Next, Bill Simmons will be out here, for commentary. Oh boy.

The Miz and Damien Mizdow interviewed Will Farrell and Kevin Hart, stars of the upcoming “Get Hard” movie.

10-man tag action is up next.

Ryback’s team wins the 10 man tag, with Shellshock, pinning The Miz.

Ryback must win this Sunday, at Wrestlemania in Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

We see footage from last Monday night, when Sting and Randy Orton were side by side, fighting The Authority.

We will find out who Orton faces, next.

Orton will face….

Rollins, and J & J Security.

Oh good, another handicap match.

Orton wins with a RKO, pinning the legendary Jamie Noble. I had to take that from @Seanfranchise6. Just too funny.

Wrestlemania, United States Title will be on the line, John Cena Vs Rusev.

We see Cena’s interview from WWE.com last week.

AJ and Paige aren’t seeming to get along right now, they will find out who faces Nikki Bella, next.

So I guess it will be Paige Vs Nikki now.

Okay, I am confused.

Nikki Bella won the match when Paige had Nikki beat with a RamPaige, but Nikki kicked out at 2. Nikki and Paige fought outside. AJ attacked Brie, turned her back. When Paige approached her, AJ elbowed Paige and Nikki hit a Rack Attack for the win.

After the match, the two partners at Wrestlemania were fighting each other.

A very good match, and a great ending.

This past week on Smackdown, the only reason to had watched was to see a Gauntlet match with 6 of the 8 participants of the Ladder match. Ziggler pinned Bryan.

Tonight, one on one, Ziggler will face Bryan and we get to choose who the special guest ref will be.

Snoop Dogg is next.

Snoop is dancing with the divas, he has his touch.

Snoop brings up Wrestlemania this weekend, with #Snoopmania running wild.

But now, we have #AxelMania running wild.

AxelMania is here to stay.

Snoop has been waiting for Axel, since he pouted off on Twitter. AxelMania, SnoopMania. But you forgot the most important one….

Hulkamania.

Hulk Hogan is in the house, brother.

Well, let me tell you something, brother. A little story about the Mania, Jack. When he pressed that giant over his shoulders, he knew Wrestlemania would last forever. When he first heard Snoop Dogg run his first track, he knew he would be owning the billboard charters, forever. But what about AxelMania? What is he smoking, brother?

Axel rips off his shirt, Hulk Hogan style and asks him what is he going to do. Hogan hits him, Snoop throws him over the top rope and reveals he is a Hulkamaniac too, Jack.

And we have the two men pose.

Brock Lesnar video is playing now.

Tonight, Brock and Reigns go face-to-face.

The Kick-Off match this Sunday will be the Tag Team Title match, a Fatal 4-Way match of The Usos Vs Los Matadores Vs Cesaro and Kidd, and The New Day.

Cesaro, Kidd, and Nattie Vs Los Matadores and El Torito, Smackdown rematch is set.

Los Matadores and Torito win.

Kane shows up, and orders Barrett to relinquish his IC Title so he can hang it up for tonight’s match of Bryan Vs Ziggler. Barrett does not like this, it’s his title. He will have to earn it back this Sunday.

We come back and will see Swagger Vs Rusev, now.

Rusev holds The Accolade on Swagger, and wins. Rusev continues to hold on to the hold, because Lana isn’t here.

But here comes Cena.

Rusev attacks Cena, and he is destroying the announce table.

Rusev throws Cena through the table, and its a glorious scene.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw….Cena being put through a table.

Bray Wyatt comes out now.

Bray calls us liars, and he is not, which is why he will take The Undertaker out of his pasture, for good.

We hear thunder.

This is the aura we have become so addicted to. Can we feel it? But these spirits belong to Wyatt now. He is the judge, he judges the dead, the living. The Undertaker is guilty. And at Wrestlemania, there is no redemption, no shield. After Sister Abigail, Bray will take his place as the new face of fear.

And at Wrestlemania, Undertaker can finally rest in peace.

Bray Wyatt is a star.

We can vote now to see who the special guest referee is for Daniel Bryan Vs Dolph Ziggler match will be, next.

The stars are out tonight.

Kevin Nash is the final inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Burger King placement ad with Tyson Kidd and Natalya. Gotta love those chicken fries.

Daniel Bryan Vs Dolph Ziggler is up now.

Dean Ambrose is the special guest referee, so here we go.

Ziggler wins with Zig Zag, and Ambrose awards him by giving him Dirty Deeds, now we see all 8 men fighting in the ring.

Paul Heyman tells Brock it’s time.

The confrontation is next.

Here Comes The Pain!!

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman, and his client is the WWE World Champion. Heyman even mocks everything that he says, because we have all heard him talk about this match. But here is the thing, Brock is a monster. He is the kind of guy that will blow someone’s door down, and hunt you down. So can Roman Reigns say that? Better yet, at Wrestlemania we will either find out that Heyman is telling us the truth, and that is Roman Reigns, though as good as he is, can’t beat Brock Lesnar. Or, Roman can prove he can, and everything Heyman has said is a lie. We all will tune in, because this is a Brock Lesnar attraction.

Now comes the single dumbest thing you can do to build a Wrestlemania main event….

Here comes Reigns, in his glory. Heyman leaves. Brock holds up his title, and he smiles. Reigns takes the title from him, and he raises the title. We end the show, better yet, we end the build to Wrestlemania with a lame ass tug of war with the WWE World Title.

Now, I was expecting a bit more, like I don’t know, how about a promo from Roman? But no, THIS IS WHERE THE SHOW ENDS!!!!

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was one of the worst Wrestlemania builds in the modern era I can truly remember. It’s not that there weren’t high points, I loved Sting Vs HHH build, and Bray Wyatt has been incredible.

But WWE had 2 months to build Roman Reigns up as a serious threat. But the Number One Contender lost two matches to Big Show, and Seth Rollins. You know, the same man who is facing the one who beat The Undertaker at Wrestlemania.

How is that possible?

But now, we have a tug of war with the most important title in the industry. Really?

Maybe, I am making too much of this, but come on Vince, you can do better. Especially with NXT valuing their World Heavyweight Title, you need to steal some ideas of theirs.

Hell, TNA did a great build of Lashley Vs Angle, so you can take idead from them, right?

But a tug of war?

Now, Seth Rollins HAS to cash in his briefcase, and walk out as WWE World Champion. It’s not even Roman’s fault, because I like him. He has the potential. When he was with The Shield, he had such a “Big Daddy Cool” vibe, so why mess with that?

But as I pointed out in the beginning of this, Wrestlemania will be an event, and we all will be watching. But the build surely could have been better, no? Or am I over thinking these things? Let me know, I will talk to you all later.

WWE NXT 3/18/15…NXT in C-Bus

Our main event, Alex Riley Vs Kevin Owens is now.

Impact Wrestling 3/20/15….Angle Vs Lashley

Tonight, for the first time ever.  Lashley Vs Angle, for the TNA World Heavyweight Title.  We will also see an Ultimate X match for the Tag Team Titles, and a Triple Threat match, for the Knockouts Title.

Impact Wrestling, in Wembley Stadium is now.

We kick the show off with The Wolves defending their Tag Team Titles against The Bromans, and The Revolution, (Manik and Sanada), Ultimate X match.  Robbie E. is still not over losing to Brooke last week, so DJ Z takes his place.

The Wolves retain their titles, by reaching up for them, after everyone was down.

A good way to start the show.

We kick the show off with Ultimate X match, for the Tag Team Titles.

The Wolves retain their title, reaching for them with everyone else down.

A good way to start the show, with Josh Matthews and Taz welcoming us. Tonight, we will see James Storm Vs Matt Hardy in a No DQ match. We will also see Knockout Triple Threat for the Knockout Title. And our main event, Angle Vs Lashley for the World Title.

We see both men entering the building, and we get a tale of the tape.

Austin Aries comes to the ring.

Aries has been out of commission the last two weeks, because of BDC putting him through a table, but they also stole his Feast or Fired briefcase, and wants it now.

Enter Lo-Ki and Joe.

Ki says this briefcase belongs to BDC now, and Aries disagrees. Austin brings up it’s still under his name who has control of a World Title shot, but he proposes a match with Lo-Ki, for the X-Division Title and Austin’s World Title opportunity.

Ki agrees, but he has to go through Joe first.

Joe nails Aries, and our match is now.

Joe is DQ’d when Ki went after Aries and tries to nail him with the briefcase, but Ki misses and hits Joe. Aries kicks the briefcase into Ki’s head, and retreives his briefcase.

But then, Rockstar Spud, complete with a bandanged head runs out, he is cashing in the X-Division Title shot, and….

wins the X-Division Title with an Acid Drop called The Underdog.

Spud celebrates with the fans.

Tonight, Knockout Title match, with Taryn Terrell Vs Gail Kim Vs Awesome Kong.

Also, Lashley Vs Angle. for the World Title.

We cut to the shot outside, and see Magnus and Bram fighting.

They take it inside, and to the ring.

Magnus just beats the hell out of him, after last week, having to kiss Bram’s foot. Mickie James comes out, but slaps Bram too. Bram tries to crawl away and Magnus lays him out with a Powerbomb.

We now hear from the lockerroom about their thoughts for tonight’s historic main event.

Taryn Terrell Vs Gail Kim Vs Awesome Kong is now for the Knockout Title.

A hard-fought match here with Taryn rolling up Gail and retained her title, while Kong is outside of the ring.

Storm is backstage and tells Matt Hardy, the time is done. There is nowhere else to run. No friends will help him.

So he will give Matt an opportunity with a throwing the quarter. Heads, he beats him to a bloody pulp, and Tails, he gives him a hosptial bed next to his brother.

He throws the quarter and tells Matt he sure would love to tell him the results.

Storm Vs Hardy in a No DQ match is up next.

Tonight, Lashley Vs Angle clash for the first time ever.

Only the strong survive.

Still to come, Angle Vs Lashley.

The camera guy gets thoughts from Kurt.

He hasn’t had a title shot in over a year, and unfortunately, it’s against one of the most dominating champions. If he wins, he cements his legacy, and that is what he intends to do.

Storm Vs Hardy in a NO DQ match, now.

Storm wins with a Last Call Superkick. The Revolution helped James out with this, and at the end of the segment, Storm hits Hardy in the back of the head with a Cowbell.

Our Main event, Lashley Vs Angle is next,

WWE Monday Night Raw 3/16/15….Now The Buildup Begins

We are 13 days away from Wrestlemania.  We see footage from last week, when Randy Orton laid out Seth Rollins.

We are live in Des Moines, Iowa….Seth Rollins own hometown, and here Rollins, with The Authority begin the show, with no show intro.

What happened last week Rollins says is ultimate betrayal.  He doesn’t expect anyone from Iowa to understand, since he is one of the few that broke out of the state.  He welcomed Randy up with open arms.  He wanted The Authority to move on, and this is a bigger betrayal than what he did with The Shield.  Because what he did to his three friends was a business decision.  This on the other hand was cold and calculated.

Kane, Big Show, Jamie, and Joey all apologized for what Randy did.  They all couldn’t trust him, but they couldn’t stop him.  Jamie tells Seth this hurt Joey the most, and Joey confirms it because he can’t even talk.

Rollins said this did hurt, but the one thing that will hurt the most at the end is Randy Orton’s ego.  Because for years, he got away with everything, and that ends here.  Because he has never messed with someone like Seth Rollins.  And he wants to challenge Rollins to a match at Wrestlemania?  Rollins accepts, but on one stipulation, he agrees to meet with Rollins here tonight.

Enter “The Viper”.

Orton isn’t the face of WWE.  He’s just a guy who made Rollins his little bitch.  And he’s also the guy that will face Rollins tonight.  He knows he will have 5-on-1 tonight, he expects that.  Because he wants to use a little venom on them as well.  And if he makes it to Wrestlemania, then he will end the “future” of WWE.

Tonight, Rollins Vs Orton.

JBL, Michael Cole, and Booker T welcome us to the show.

Tonight, an official contract signing with John Cena Vs Rusev, at Wrestlemania.

Also tonight, an exclusive interview with Brock Lesnar, sharing his views on Roman Reigns.

AJ Lee Vs Nikki Bella is next.

We are 13 days away from Wrestlemania.

Wrestlemania will start at 7 eastern, 4 pacific.  It will be a 4 hour show.

AJ Lee Vs Nikki Bella is set now.

Paige and Brie have words, Brie rams Paige’s head off the steel steps, and Nikki hits a Rack Attack for the win over AJ.

Next, we see footage with what happened this week on Smackdown, with Mark Henry going through a wall, by Roman Reigns.

The Kick-Off Show will be 2 hours, like last year, so everything will start at 5:00 PM, for Wrestlemania.

Last Thursday night, we see Reigns putting Henry through the barricade wall.

Can Roman Reigns do the impossible, and defeat Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania?  We will hear from The Beast later tonight.

Renee Young is standing by with Kane and Big Show.

Kane brings up Big Show will be in Rollins corner later tonight.  Big Show is upset Kane made the decision for him, and the two start to bicker.

Rollins comes out and chews them out, agreeing with Stephanie these two look stupid, representing The Authority.

Kane makes it clear, he cannot talk to these two in this manner.  They actually enjoyed Rollins getting his ass kicked last week, and part of it is his own fault, for acting like a spoiled little kid ever since Kane gave him that briefcase.

Kane is not going to join Rollins tonight, and offers that same courtesy to Big Show.

Big Show walks away.

Ryback Vs The Miz is next.

Shellshock, match is over.  Mizdow was with Miz.  Miz made it clear earlier today, that if Mizdow doesn’t help Miz win Andre The Giant Battle Royal, then he will be fired.

Ryback gave Mizdow a chance to hit Miz, but Miz made sure he didn’t.

After the match, Miz nails Mizdow with a Skull Crushing Finale.

Cena Vs Rusev video is showing.

Tonight, Cena Vs Rusev official contract signing.

The official contract signing between Cena and Rusev is now, with Cole introducing both men.

Cena has signed many of these contracts, but this one is the most important.  We are about to be introduced to a super-athlete.  He is the hero of “The Russian Federation”, he has destroyed many wrestlers, including himself.  He is also the United States Champion.

Now take a moment in that to reflect, because it represents all of us.  Now Cena can come out here and whip his ass again, but it doesn’t do any good, because he still represents us.

So he is here to announce enough is enough.  Rusev lives in these United States.  He still rags on us, and Cena is proud to call this his country, and call it home.

USA chants now.

We let that chant fill with pride, with honor, and with love.  Cena has stood with soldiers, and this contract represents freedom, and the honor of standing for what you believe.  We will stand up, and FIGHT.  Wrestlemania, is what Rusev will learn to find out is we can stand so far, until we kick their ass.

He signs the contract.

Now here comes Rusev.

Lana does not come out with Rusev.  It’s Rusev’s attorney, and Rusev will not be signing this contract,

Rusev will not compete at Wrestlemania.  He did not agree to any match.

We see footage from last 2 weeks, when Steph tells John the only way he can have the match is if Rusev agrees to the match.  But Rusev never did, Lana accepted it.  So the contract is noid and void.

The only way he will accept the match is if Rusev can read a prepaired statement, without Cena acting in his “barbaric” ways.

John Cena is just like America, weak.  Because Cena already had his match, and Rusev defeated him.  But people will grow up to be failures, just like their children.

Cena does not like that.  But he doesn’t fight back.

How stupid we all are, America is the “cancer” of the world, and we all will die.

Cena doesn’t fight back, Rusev signs the contract, flips the table and runs.

Rusev Vs Cena is official.

The Russian Flag pops up, in front of Cena.

Later tonight, 6-man tag match of Bryan, Ziggler, and Ambrose Vs Barrett, Harper, and Stardust.  Also tonight, Orton Vs Rollins.

Our next match is The New Day Vs Tyson and Cesaro.

Cesaro and Kidd win the match, with Cesaro rolling up Kofi after Kofi hits Tyson with Trouble in Paradise.

During the match, Los Matadores show up, and after the match, they attack The New Day.  They send Kofi back into the ring, with a Neutralizer by Cesaro.

But El Torito has the final say here, going after Cesaro.

Last Monday night on Raw, Undetaker sent Wyatt a crypic message….he accepts the Wrestlemania challenge.

Did Bray Wyatt really get what he wanted?  He will respond, tonight.  Next, we get thoughts from Brock Lesnar.

Rollins is talking with J & J Security.  Now Rollins and Noble are fighting among each other.

Joey walks off, now we need an Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns segment for old times sake.

Will Roman Reigns beat Brock Lesnar?

We hear from Brock, now.

Brock is ready to kick some ass at Wrestlemania.

Brock will kick Roman’s ass at Mania.  This is not a fairy tale, not a feel-good moment.  He is going to tear Roman Reigns up.

The end.

Lesnar Vs Reigns, in 13 days at Wrestlemania.

Big Show is in action, next.

Erick Rowan is now going to be Big Show’s bitch.

The match never takes place.  Big Show knocks out Rowan before the bell rings, and the match never takes place.

The newest WWE Hall of Fame inductee is “The Living Legend” Larry Zbyszko.

Tonight, a 6-man tag match is set.

Kane is going to give us a demonstration of what Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal will look like, with Kane winning.  Mark Henry is officially in the match.

Mark Henry is the last man standing, showing us what is what he does.

Tonight, Orton Vs Rollins.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman.  He is the advocate of the reigning, defending, WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar.

The most authentic, legitimate World Champion of WWE, and MMA.

Then, now, and forever.

His client, Brock Lesnar is not a pacifist.  His client, Brock Lesnar is a beast.  Brock Lesnar is not coming to Wrestlemania to make love, he is coming to Mania to make war.

What are they going to do when Brock evaluates Roman Reigns?  Are they going to cut off the cable?  Are they going to cut off the feed?  Nobody knows, because we are all stuck with Brock Lesnar as our champion.

Mic feed goes off, again.

Nobody can stop Brock, not even Roman Reigns.  Because he was the next breakout superstar, he was the rising star in NXT.  He beat 29 other men in Royal Rumble, but he can’t beat Brock Lesnar.  He can’t beat him for the World Title, at Wrestlemania.

He can’t….he can’t….he can’t.

Enter Roman Reigns.

Reigns doesn’t have an issue with Heyman.  Paul is one of the great talkers in this business.  But he has an issue with his client, so allow him to talk to Brock.

If he was here, he’d say this one on one.

He is preparing for a fight.  He has many family members, so he can be carried out, but he is going to hold the WWE World Title on his shoulder.  He has a huge chip on his shoulder, and it starts with these people who don’t like him.

But he is going to do it, not because he can, but because he needs to, and he believes that.

Earlier tonight, Orton Vs Rollins was set for tonight.  But Rollins is going out by himself.

Renee Young wants to hear comments from Heyman about Reigns comments.

He loves the chess Reigns is playing right now.  But he won’t have to wait for Wrestlemania for Lesnar, because next week, Reigns can say whatever he wants to Brock.  But at the same token, Lesnar can speak to Reigns and do whatever he pleases, and there is nothing he can say or do about.

6-man tag match with Bryan, Ziggler, and Ambrose Vs Barrett, Stardust, and Harper.

Ambrose pins Barrett with Dirty Deeds.  Now all 6 men are fighting, and with R-Truth doing commentary, the IC Title is flying all over the place.

Ziggler and Bryan now are fighting for the title, which was fun to see.

Barrett leaves with the title, after laying everyone out with a Bull Hammer.

HHH and Stephanie are making their only appearance of the evening and now Rollins can’t get along with them.

Rollins is on his own.

We hear from Bray Wyatt, next.

LL Cool J will appear at Wrestlemania.

Earlier tonight, we had the official contract signing of Rusev Vs Cena.

We see Rusev signing, and run away from Cena.

Also at Wrestlemania, Bray Wyatt will face The Undertaker.

We see footage from last Monday, when Taker accepted the challenge, in his own way.

We hear from Wyatt now.

A memory is such a treasure.  Bray remembers when he saw her sitting in that chair for the first time.  He remembers how beautiful she looked, but also what she said.  She spoke about the evil world using their powers against us.  Undertaker tried to take that memory from her.

But he takes that chair to dust, but people ask what remains The Undertaker.  Is it defeat?  Is it fear?  Because the last time we saw him, he saw defeat.  It was a tragedy what happened to Taker.  It was as if destiny was taken from him, but we see what remains of him.  Wrestlemania will be the final resting place, and Bray will take his righteous place.  And she will look on with pride, and then the rest of the world isn’t safe.

Behold the new face of fear.

Orton Vs Rollins is next.

Next week, we will have a face-to-face with Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns.  We will also be in Hollywood, with special guest hosts being Snoop Dawg and Bill Simmons.

Orton Vs Reigns is up now.

Rollins come out, and tell us everything he has been doing in the last 3 hours was a joke.

Enter The Authority.

Enter Sting.

I can’t believe I am typing this, but Stinger Splash on J & J Security…..Scorpion Deathdrop.

Holy shit, this is cool.

Orton with a RKO.

Coming up on WWE Network, an exclusive interview with Orton and Sting.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Boy, last week’s show sucked, the build had been up to this point, mostly piss poor.

But not tonight.

13 days away from the biggest event of the year, and let’s face it, they showcased every match tonight.  It’s really the way every PPV should be built, like every segment needs to feel important.

Tonight did that.

Especially the awesome ending, with Sting showing up.  My god, was that great.  And Sting kicked ass, this felt lije 1997 Sting going after NWO after every important Nitro.

Now next week, we will see Reigns and Lesnar have their final face-off.  I’d like to hope Sting will be there too, but maybe not?  We know HHH will do a great job building the show up, regardless.

Even Cena and Rusev did their job, as did Bray Wyatt setting up his match with Taker.  We know too that the IC Title Ladder Match will steal the show, and they had a good showcase tonight, despite the announcers try to screw that up.  Even the Divas were able to showcase their talents.

It had to be a big show, and WWE delivered this.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Are you looking forward to Wrestlemania?  Sound off, let me know.

Impact Wrestling 3/13/15…There Will Be Blood

Tonight, three former friendships are thrown to the wolves. We will also see Hair Vs Hair, EC3 Vs Rockstar Spud.  Also, Magnus Vs Bram, one on one.  And Bobby Roode Vs Eric Young, in a Last Man Standing Match.

There will be blood.

Impact Wrestling is now.

We kick the show off with EY Vs Roode, Last Man Standing Match.

What a fun match here that had Roode win the match, and answer the 10 count, when he put EY through a table.  Both men had an incredible match here, and this has been a good feud.

Is this the end of the feud?

Magnus and Mickie James have entered the building.  Tonight, Magnus Vs Bram.

Also tonight, EC3 Vs Rockstar Spud in a Hair Vs Hair match.

JB is telling Spud he doesn’t have to do this, but Spud assures him he does.  Ethan has money, and is a bully.  So Spud had to stand up to him, and that is why Carter is afraid of him.  In Ethan’s world, the bad guy always wins.  But in Spud’s world, the good guy wins and he must shave his head, tonight.

Next week, Angle Vs Lashley for the TNA World Heavyweight Title.

Previously on Impact, Drew Galloway made his debut, to stand up to BDC, and to stand up for wrestling.

Here comes Drew, with a mic.

Drew feels the passion for the real fans of professional wrestling.  Drew used to come to these shows as a kid.  He is a fan first and foremost and wants to feel passion from the crowd.

Drew goes into the fans now.

Drew connects with the fans.  He tells them it’s story time with Drew.  Once upon a time in professional wrestling, it used to matter what the fans thought.  Then something happened, people shoved things down our throats on something we didn’t want.  So who wants to take back professional wrestling?

Which brings Drew to MVP.  He tries and shove BDC down our throats, he screwed Roode, tried to screw Lashley.

Here comes Beat Down Clan.

MVP calls out Drew.  As far as Drew is concerned, MVP is God.  Because he literally holds his life in his hands.  Because once upon a time, he was “chosen”.  Drew has the looks, he has the skills, but one reason he was never a champion is because he is too stupid to realize what he did.  But Drew is “chosen” to be beat down.  Once upon a time, they were drinking buddies.  MVP used to like him, and for that reason he will do Drew a favor.  He will ask his brothers to step in the back, so he can beat Drew by himself.

Drew Vs MVP is next.

Galloway had things won, but BDC takes Drew out.

Joe hands Ki a lead pipe, and Ki takes him out with the show.  MVP welcomes Galloway to TNA.

Magnus assures Mickie that he is ready for tonight, but asks Mickie to stay in the back.  He is handling this himself.

Bram Vs Magnus, next.

We see the history video between EC3 and Rockstar Spud.

EC3 is getting his thoughts.  For 16 months, Ethan has been undefeated, beating names like Sting, Bully, and Angle.  Names that represent greatness.  Spud represents the 99 percenters.  He is in his native country, and this is supposed to be his night.  But Spud, remember….you asked for this.

Bram Vs Magnus is now.

BGram is DQ’d when he kicked Magnus in the balls, and nails him with a chair.  Bram now has a cue ball, but Mickie James comes out and saves her fiancee.  Bram grabs her by the hair, and Mickie slaps Bram.  But the evil “friend” grabs her right back, and taunts Magnus with her.  Ordering for Magnus to kiss Bram’s boot.

Relunctantly, Magnus kisses Bram’s boot.

Switching gears, Brooke faces Robbie E one on one, next.

Earlier tonight, BDC took out Drew Galloway, including Lo-Ki nailing Drew with a lead pipe.

We cut right back to BDC. They tell us more will happen, and this isn’t the end of it with Drew.

Our next match in an intergender match. Robbie E., complete with a boxing intro will fac ehis former girlfriend, Brooke.

Brooke rolls up Robbie, after help from Jessie backfired.

EC3 Vs Spud, Hair Vs Hair match is up next.

Next week, Kurt Angle will face Lashley, for the TNA World Title. Josh Matthews is in the Nasville studios, previewing the match.

Spud Vs EC3, in a Hair Vs Hair match is up now.

WWE NXT 3/11/15…Alex Riley Returns To The Ring

We are live, on tape at Full Sail University, in Orlando, Florida.  Big Cass and Enzo Amore come out to the ring.

They are facing The Lucha Dragons, and they are SAWFT!!

Cass and Enzo tell them they are on their way to the Tag Team Titles.

Enzo and Cass wins with a Rocket Launcher.

They are now Number One Contender matches.

Tonight, Alex Riley Vs CJ Parker.

Next week, NXT goes to The Buckeye State in Columbus, Ohio.  We will see Alex Riley face Kevin Owens, and Columbus’ own Alexa Bliss will face Sasha Banks.

Alex Riley video is playing.

We now see Kevin Owens video, and his history of NXT.

Divas action now with Carmella Vs Alexa Bliss, next.

Alexa wins with what she calls a Sparkle Splash, off the top rope.

Tonight, Alex Riley will face CJ Parker.

Earlier today, we hear from A-Ry. He has felt trapped for two years, comparing it to being trapped in a cage. Kevin Owens talks about doing this to feed his family, Alex has no family. This business is HIS family and tonight, he fights for his family.

Also later tonight, we will see Hideo Itami face Tyler Breeze.

Tyler talks about proving to Itami just how pretty he is, and how ugly Itami will be.

Alex Riley Vs CJ Parker.

A-Ry picks up the win with a Blockbuster off the top rope. One of the best dropkicks in the business, and he proved it again.

Kevin Owens comes out and calls Riley the dumbest man in NXT. Because he quit his announce job just to face Owens. Next week, he will get that opportunity, and Owens will end his in-ring career. Then, he will take out Finn Balor.

Riley Vs Owens is next week.

Our main event, Tyler Breeze Vs Hideo Itami is now.

Tyler Breeze defeated Itami with a Beaty Shot, after Itami hit his head on the bottom turnbuckle, leaving him a bit loopy.

A big win by Tyler, and the show ends with Tyler slowly walking out of the ring, seems a bit loopy too.

Next week, NXT is in Columbus, Ohio, part of the Arnold Classic and the show ends here.

WWE Monday Night Raw 3/9/15…Cause You Know, 2-On-1 Handicap Matches Work So Well

After taking a full week off from reporting wrestling, I am back in time to see the bullshit that was Roman Reings, the man who is the Number One Contender to the WWE World Title, heading to Wrestlemania lose, thanks in part to Randy Orton.

The Authority, minus HHH and Stephanie McMahon are in the ring to officially welcome back Randy Orton.

J & J Security are the two people who are not keen on Orton being a member of The Authority.  But Seth Rollins assures everyone that Orton can be trusted.  However, there are people who say that is not the case, but we are idiots, right?

Orton and Rollins are in this ring, standing side by side, together.

Rollins had some doubt in Orton, as did J & J Security, Kane did, and as well as The Big Show, but who cares what The Big Show thinks.

But Rollins is joking, and he shakes Orton’s hand to signify they are all on the same page.  But now give it up to the man who is his partner tonight, “The Viper” Randy Orton.

Orton is touched by this, but he has a question here.  What the hell has happened to The Authority?

Kane used to be “The Devil’s Favorite Demon”, so why did he become the “Corporate Kissass”?

What about The Big Show?  He should be able to dominate, instead he is just moaning and complaining.

Why is Jamie Noble so upset?  Is it because everyone knows who he is?  Or is it because Randy can ride all the rides at Disneyland, and Jamie cannot.

He completely ignores Mercury, and this brings him to Rollins.

Orton wants Seth to feel safe and secure so that when he strikes, he can make Rollins his own personal bitch, and he won’t know when it happens.

He’s just messing with them.

Rollins is laughing about this, they are here to have some fun.  And that includes tonight taking out Roman Reigns, and destroy him on his road to Wrestlemania.

And they will do that because that is what is best for business.

Do you trust Orton?

Michael Cole, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show.  Wiz Khalifa will be the special guest host of tonight’s Raw.  Brock Lesnar is in Pittsburgh tonight.  What is his on his mind?  We find out tonight.

Daniel Bryan is in action, next.

Daniel Bryan Vs Bad News Barrett is now.

Barrett continues his losing streak, though technically he still is the IC Champion.

Is Daniel Bryan added to the mix at Wrestlemania?

Barrett hits a Bull Hammer from behind.

Here comes Dean Ambrose, he attacks Barrett.

Ambrose is in action, next.

Stardust has possession of the IC Title, he is facing Ambrose, now.

Dirty Deeds, the match is over.

Ambrose now has the IC Title, but here comes Barrett.

Daniel Bryan heads in.

Luke Harper.

Dolph Ziggler.

R-Truth has a knapsack, and puts the IC Title in his bag.

Barrett think he has his title back, but Truth did not give it to him.

The newest inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame is….

the first ever recipitant of The Warrior award….Connor “The Crusher” Mihalick.

Very touching, and truly deserving.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman. All day long they have been wanting Heyman to rpeview this video, but instead he has decided to watch this video with us.

The video is Roman Reigns.

Okay, so Roman Reigns made some interesting points, which ladies and gentlemen he retorts, HERE COMES THE PAIN!! The Reigning, defending, and undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar.

Heyman understands what a fan pleasing video that was, but to his client that was a sheer tale of propaganda.

Reigns was a “standout” as the video would say.

Heyman knows about his family since he was 14 years old. Heyman wants to tell us the truth. When Roman was 9 years old, his father, who was one generation from cannibalism took he and his sons out to a bar. Told them don’t come home until you leave one man standing. His cousin told him to use a punch, a spear, two things he does now, but the truth is Roman Reigns will not beat Brock Lesnar.

If The Authority chooses to put the title on Reigns, only to have Seth Rollins cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase, because he isn’t man enough to do that to Lesnar, that won’t happen. Brock assures to us that if something happens, such as “The Montreal Screwjob”, Brock will make sure that every man responsible for “The Montreal Screwjob”, Brock will destroy them.

The mic goes off, and Heyman brings up “Oz” who is in the production truck, and isn’t man enough to come to the ring and take the title away from Brock.

If Brock wants to “unify” the WWE World Title, and the UFC Heavyweight Title, Brock can do that.

The mic goes out again.

Hey, how about this, Brock can show up to the Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquio and take both men on.

How about this, in 2002, a rookie Brock Lesnar faced Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, beat him, and Rock left for Hollywood.

Then again, this is the same man who took The Undertaker’s streak, made him less of a man to the point where Bray Wyatt is trying to resurrect his career, at Wrestlemania.

In other words, this is no longer the WWE World Championship, this is Brock Lesnar’s title, and there isn’t a damn thing any of us can do about.

Bray Wyatt assures us that tonight, we will get an answer, finally.

Kane and Big Show Vs Ryback and Rowan, now.

Rowan and Ryback win when Big Show “accidentally” knocks out Kane.

The two of them fight, and here comes Stephanie McMahon, to chew them out.

Why can’t these two act like professionals? Shut up, Big Show.

We are 3 weeks away from Wrestlemania, and they act like children? They represent The Authority, they represent herself, they represent HHH, they represent WWE.

Perhaps Randy Orton was right. She wants “The Devil’s Favorite Demon” back, and not someone who just gets coffee. She orders them to get out of the ring. She screams to get out of her ring.

She tells them to pack up their bags, and leave for the night. They need to be one UNIT.

Switching gears, footage from last week when The Miz was involved in an irrectal commercial.

The Miz is trying to work a record deal with Wiz Khalifa. Wiz isn’t interested in working with The Miz after last week, but he did sign with Mizdow. Mizdow gives us a rap, saying he is in the Andre The Giant Battle Royal, at Wrestlemania.

Now why don’t these two get a one on one match?

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

Wiz Khalifa is out now, to perform.

He is performing “We Dem Boyz”.

Last week, we see the return of AJ Lee. She is in action, next.

The Bella Twins are being interviewed. They are scheduled to face AJ and Paige, telling us in so many ways they don’t stand a chance.

AJ Lee Vs Summer Rae is now.

AJ makes Summer Rae tap out to the Black Widow.

We will hear from “The Vigalante” Sting, next.

We see a video of Sting, with a digitalized voice. He more or less said Sting has been watching HHH. This is a shame, because Sting is so passionate in his promos. But he is telling HHH this is about retribution, he had watched WCW parish and fold due to absolute power. He has been waiting for 14 years of this.

At Wrestlemania, it will be Sting Vs HHH.

The United States Champion Rusev is set for one on one action, but is met with Cena.

Cena calls Rusev stupid for refusing to face Cena. He wants to be proud of his country? Be proud, but he doesn’t have the right to spell out his propaganda against the United States. Because if he does, Cena has the right to beat him down. Daring Rusev to bring up United States tonight, because he doesn’t need a Wrestlemania match, he will beat him down, and show him the kind of fight Cena has.

Rusev is facing Curtis Axel. Axelmania is running wild, brother.

Match is done, Accolade.

Rusev has the mic now.

You see this America? This represents every single one os us, because Axel is delusional. He thinks he is someone he is not. Back in the Hulkamania days, America was strong, but now, America is weak. America, if we had a heart, it would be weak. If America would have a soul, God would come down, and spit on it.

Those are fighting words, and here comes Cena.

Cena puts Rusev in a STF, Rusev passes out, then Cena throws water on his face and puts a STF on Rusev again, and Rusev is tapping out like a bitch.

Lana gives Cena his Wrestlemania match, for the United States Title.

Okay, way to make the undefeated United States champion look weak.

Bray Wyatt confirms tonight he raises the dead. He wants answers.

Find Me.

Moments ago, we see Cena destroy Rusev and get what he wants a title match at Wrestlemania.

Rusev is being checked on by medics. He is irate that Lana accepted the match.

The New Day Vs Tyson and Cesaro.

New Day winwhen Natalya is almost bumped into Tyson, and Xavier rolls up Tyson.

We immedately shift to Naomi Vs Nattie, now.

Naomi wins the match with Rear View, pins Nattie. Not a very good night for the First Diva and Tag Champs.

But now, we have yet another match. Los Matadores Vs The Uso’s.

Los Matadores win the match with some assitance from El Torito, who is more over than Los Matadores.

20 days away from Wrestlemania.

Earlier tonight, The Authority reunited with Randy Orton.

J & J Security still don’t trust Orton, and Rollins reminds them he has everything in control and has he stirred them wrong?

Here is the blueprint, we stop worrying about Orton. He is family.

Bray Wyatt is next, he will raise the dead.

Bray Wyatt is in the ring and he tells us he sees corrupted government, corrupted cities, filled with crime. And laying beneath us is The Undertaker. This has always been about him. Pride is such a horrible sin, and Bray will not be condemned here. This was always pre-ordained. Taker always knew The Streak would end, and he’d be carried accross the shield. But Wyatt can help Taker, for fate can always conquer anything, but this time Bray will shoot the trigger and Undertaker will be buried forver.

So what is going to be Undertaker? Come out, come out wherever you are? Or are you here, which is the urn.

Bray tells us it’s empty, just like….

Smoke comes out, thunder strikes, and the bell tolls.

The lights come back on, spotlighted by a rocking chair. We hear a voice from The Undertaker telling him he will rest ion peace, as the rocking chair blazes in fire.

Our main event, Roman Reigns Vs Seth Rollins and Randy Orton is next.

Earlier tonight, Cena forced Lana to accept his challenge with Rusev at Wrestlemania.

Reigns Vs Orton and Rollins is now.

WWE Monday Night Raw 2/23/15…The Greatest Raw Of The Year

This might be a bold statement by me, since Raw hasn’t had many great shows lately, but after last night’s FastLane, and The Road To Wrestlemania in full effect, there is no reason why Raw can’t be the greatest show, right?

Right?

Okay, Raw is on now.

We are 34 days away from Wrestlemania.  Live in Nashville, Tennessee.

The return of “The Viper”, Randy Orton heads to the ring.

Orton isn’t here to talk a 20 minute promo, but there is something he has to get off his chest,  Orton has been out of action for the last 4 months, specifically because of Seth Rollins.

We see Rollins use a Curb Stomp on Orton through an announce table, and another curb stomp on a steel step.

The last four months, Orton has been playing this image over and over.  So he is here to tell The Authority, he is here to tell the world, Orton is just getting started.

Seth Rollins ran away, he doesn’t call escape, he calls a stay of execution.  He wants Rollins to come out.

Behold The King….The King of Kings….On your knees, punk.

The Authority, minus Rollins come out to the ring.

Stephanie has the mic, and welcomes Orton back.  He had a hell of a return last night, and he’s making the mark tonight.  This is the Randy Orton they have wanted, the Randy Orton that had 16,000 fans screaming Randy.

Orton isn’t buying it.

Orton can’t forgive Rollins, Stephanie tells him “The Face” of WWE can co-exist with “The Future” of WWE.  Band together, and join The Authority.

Orton says that is tempting, but he’d rather kick some ass than kiss some ass.

Big Show understands his anger and frustration.  Big Show has had that too, but joining The Authority was the best personal choice Show made.  He knows Orton, and coming back to The Authority, it’s the best decision he can make.

And by joining The Authority, it means selling your soul.

Stephanie tells Orton that he isn’t a nice man.  He has done some deplorable things involving her family.  Including her father, her brother, her husband, and even herself.  But they can be business partners.  They can discuss things in a timely manner.  Will he at least listen?

HHH says nothing, but looks straight at Orton, and leaves.

Orton will have a conference, later tonight.

Tonight, we find out what is next for John Cena.

We will also hear from the new Number One Contender, Roman Reigns.

Bad News Barrett, the official IC Champion, but doesn’t have his belt will face Dolph Ziggler, next.

Barrett loses again to Ziggler.  R-Truth was on commentary, getting a sense of all of this.

Dean Ambrose shows up now.

He has the IC Title in his possession.

Ziggler is looking at the title, and Dean “bumps” into him, walking out of the ring.

Next, we see footage between Sting and HHH from last night, on FastLane.

Sting shows up last night, and had the final word.

It will happen, at Wrestlemania.  HHH Vs Sting.

Tonight, we take a look at The Man Called Sting.

Rollins is now here for the Summit.

Stephanie starts to talk things out, but Seth doesn’t want to agree with this.  Stephanie feels disrespected, and starts chewing out at Rollins.  The Authority needs “The Viper” Randy Orton.  This is about absolute power.

But how are they supposed to trust him, again?

Steph says there are no buts, how can he trust Seth, after his plan?

She wants to hear from Randy, giving him an oath he can trust them again, and they can open their arms up and welcome them back.

Orton shakes Rollins’ hand.

Stephanie wants to show them what they can do.  Tonight, Orton and Rollins team up to face Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns.

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

Prime Time Players are back together.  They are set to face The Ascension.

Prime Time Players defeat The Ascension when Darren pins Viktor with a roll up.

Fall of the Man after the match.

34 days away from Wrestlemania, Roman Reigns Vs Brock Lesnar, for the WWE World Title.

Reigns speaks, next.

Hour one concludes here with the new Number One Contender, Roman Reigns.

It’s been a hell of a month for Reigns.  It started in January, going through 29 men, winning the Royal Rumble.  But I guess that wasn’t good enough.  He then went in, faced Daniel Bryan last night, and did what he said he would do.  Now, he can say he is going to Wrestlemania.

He heard them all month, the fans were rooting for the other guy.  But to all of his doubters….

Here comes Daniel Bryan.

Daniel interrupted here, because he mentioned the doubters.  Daniel saw Reigns win the Royal Rumble match.  And he knew Reigns deserved that opportunity to main event at Wrestlemania.  But Daniel felt like these people.  Daniel booed, because he is the biggest Roman Reigns doubter.

When they talk about promise, when they talk about ability, he knows they really talk about size.  But these guys don’t have the heart, the in-ring ability like Daniel Bryan.  That’s why they don’t like Reigns, and it’s why Daniel doesn’t like Reigns.

But last night, Daniel gave it every single ounce that he had.  He dug as deep as he could, but he still didn’t do it.  And Daniel can honestly say he doesn’t regret one thing.  He gave it every single ounce he had, and it wasn’t Daniel.  Reigns has more heart than Daniel ever thought he had.

They both fought, gave every sense of energy they could, and Roman Reigns beat Daniel Bryan.  They left everything on the table, and he has one thing to say, congratulations.

And if there is one person Daniel would fight with as his partner, its Roman Reigns.  Now go beat the crap out of Brock Lesnar.

Ladies and gentlemen, as Daniel Bryan walks off.  His name is Paul Heyman, and if we think he is here to cause trouble this evening, he’s actually here to say Roman Reigns, congratulations, sir.

They shake hands.

Heyman tells Reigns, that was a hell of a match he had last night, and he earned that spot as Number One Contender to the WWE World Title.  And Heyman is not surprised.  Because his money was always on Roman Reigns.  Only an idiot would say Roman is not The One.  1968, Roman Reigns Vs Bruno Sammartino, his money would always be on Roman Reigns.  1987 against Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant, his money would always be on Roman Reigns.  1998, against “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, 1999, against The Rock.  2000, against HHH.  His money would always be on Roman Reigns.  His money on Roman Reigns against 29 different opponents at Royal Rumble.

Heyman’s money would be on Reigns.  And, at Wrestlemania, his money would always be on Reigns, being The One….except this one.  Against The BEAST.  Roman Reigns, you can’t slay a dragon, you can’t tame THE BEAST.  You can’t be the one to beat The 1 in 21-1, because Heyman’s money would always be on his client, BRRRRRRRRRROCCCCCCCCCCK LESNAR!!!

Reigns wants Heyman to say it again, because people have been doubting Reigns for a while, and all he has done is proven them wrong.  In fact, Heyman was there the night after Royal Rumble.  Reigns told Lesnar he will make him respect him.  But that was all for show, because Reigns could care less.  What he wants is to show Brock how he is going to beat him, and do it by wearing him down, and take him out.

BELIEVE THAT!!

Tonight, Bryan and Reigns Vs Orton and Rollins.  Next, Tag Team rematch, The Uso’s Vs Kidd and Cesaro.

Kidd and Cesaro are DQ’d when the ladies get involved and Nattie clipped Jimmy Uso off the top rope.  The Uso’s win the match, but not the titles.

What is next for John Cena?  We find out tonight, and next, The New Face of Fear, Bray Wyatt.

The Miz is with Damien Mizdow and Damien has some big news, but Miz doesn’t want to hear Mizdow speak.  Mizdow wants to thank Miz for using him as a stunt double.  Now casting agents want to use Mizdow in a commercial.

In all of this, there was also a mention of Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal returning.  I hope not, because it did nothing for Cesaro after winning last year’s inaugural match.

Moments from FastLane last night, when Bray Wyatt issued a challenge to The Undertaker.

Bray shows up, in a casket.  Close your eyes, do you see what I see?  or perhaps you see a number, like 1, as in 21-1.  Imagine The Undertaker in broken dreams on the grandest stage of them all.  And I am sure you can feel its claws dragging you down, where you belong.

And that feeling now is in Bray Wyatt,  He knows he is feeling Bray Wyatt, and it feels so much better being down here.

Wyatt closes the casket, and screams out find me.

Stardust is in action, next.

Stardust Vs Jack Swagger.

Swagger wins the match by making Stardust tap to the Patriot Lock, after Goldust comes out to distract him for a second.

Crowd is still chanting for Cody.

Last night, Rusev defeated John Cena, made him pass out to The Accolade.  Where does John Cena go from here?

We will find out, when we hear from John, next.

34 days away from Wrestlemania.

Here comes John Cena, wearing proudly his “Never Give Up” shirt, where you can buy at WWEShopzone.com.

Cena makes it clear, The Road To Wrestlemania is here.  The United States Title match, Bray Wyatt defeated Cena, but make no mistake about it, Cena looked straight at Rusev, and took him to the limit, did not give up.  He would be the first to break out of The Accolade.

But Rusev let him go, to spin him around and kick him in the nuts, so he can achieve his victory.  He has no problem with that, but he does have a problem with Rusev, the man.

He had a chance to show the world what kind of hero he is, by beating Cena, but instead, he showed us what a coward he is.

Enter Rusev and Lana.

Lana told Cena that he did what any American does, he let his country down and gave up to a superior athlete, Rusev.

While John has been trying to find words to say about his loss, Rusev has been receiving praise and messages from his fabulous leader, Vladimir Putin.

Cena calls Rusev a coward?  He broke him, and it’s Rusev time.  He is United States Champion, and nobody can beat him.

Rusev wants Cena to admit Rusev defeated Cena, and Rusev is superior to America.

Cena warns him that if he comes to the ring to tell him that, he would….

Would what, Lana asks.  Because this video says it all.

Cena is laid out from last night.

Cena says that if this says anything, America gets right back up, and fights another day.  Cena questions if Putin truly called him, and if he did, he should be disgusted with the kind of athlete Rusev truly is.  70 years ago, Marines landed on Hiroshima, and planted their flag on that.  Cena will get that rematch at Wrestlemania, and find a way.

Rusev denies, saying what makes Cena think he can get that match?  The “great” John Cena?  He was once great, but not anymore.  This John Cena quit.  There will not be a rematch.

The Russian flag shows up at ringside, irritating Cena.

Earlier tonight, Orton agreed to be Seth Rollins partner.  They will face Bryan and Reigns.

Rollins wants to talk with Orton, and Randy tells Rollins to leave his “kids in suits” at the door.  Orton is all about the “big business”.  Orton wants to show Bryan and Roman they were lucky Orton wasn’t in the 30 man Royal Rumble.

Rollins would agree to that, let’s just show the world what “The Face” and “The Future” can do together as a team.

Tonight, we will see a video on A Man Called Sting.

But first, Paige is in action, next.

The Man Called Sting video is playing now.

At Wrestlemania, Sting Vs HHH.

Paige and Emma are now facing off with The Bella Twins.

Emma turned her back on The Bellas, and they made her pay.  Match over.

Paige tries to fight back, but Nikki nails Paige with the Divas Title.

We will find out who is the next inductee of the WWE Hall of Fame, next.

The latest inductees of the WWE Hall of Fame are….

The Bushwackers.

Very disappointing, but okay.

The Axel-Mania movement is still alive.  Curtis Axel is putting himself in the second annual Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.  You can’t stop the movement….

Feed Me More!!

Wake Up!!  ITS FEEDING TIME!!!

Ryback tells Axel that they were at one point, one of the greatest tag teams in the world.  But Ryback has put his name to Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal match, but that’s 34 days away.  So why not these two square off, tonight?

Shellshock, match is over.

Our main event is next, Orton and Rollins Vs Reigns and Bryan.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, FastLane rematch with Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback Vs Rollins, Big Show, and Kane.

Rollins and Orton Vs Reigns and Bryan.

Reigns and Bryan win when Orton and Rollins had some communication problems.  Rollins blindly tags Orton when Randy had Reigns set up for a Draping DDT.  But when Roman had Rollins set up for a spear, Daniel blindly tags Reigns and hits a high kick for the win.

After the match, Orton had Rollins ready for a punt, but J & J Security help, and Orton hits a RKO on Jamie Noble.  He lets Rollins back up, pats him on the back, and walks away.

Slowly turning the hands of time.

Show ends here, with a birthday celebration, on WWE Network.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I am going to be patient through this build.  I was truly expecting to see Orton RKO Rollins at end of show, but right now, they are going slowly with it.

So, we have 2 big matches set.  We will see where everything else is thrown in, but now is the time to make Smackdown feel like must-see TV, something they haven’t done in months.

Tonight worked.  We saw an amazing Sting video, that set the stage for Mania.  HHH was very good tonight too, just in his facial expressions.  Very discontent with everything around him, and just thinking about looking bad last night.

Off to a good start, I do question bringing back Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal though, because it did absolutely nothing for Cesaro winning last year.  So why bring it back?  And The Bushwackers as HOF’ers?

Other than that, an entertaining 3 hours.  Send me your thoughts here.

WWE FastLane 2/22/1

Tonight, the REAL Road to Wrestlemania will begin, because we will see who truly faces “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Title.  Daniel Bryan will face Roman Reigns, with the winner facing Brock at the big event.

The pre-show begins in 30 minutes, so join me tonight as I will keep you updated, and we find out together.

Renee Young welcomes us to the Pre-Show.  She is joined by Booker T, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton.

Tonight, Roman Reigns Vs Daniel Bryan.  Winner faces Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania.

Also tonight, John Cena Vs Rusev, for the United States Championship.

Can John Cena get the job done tonight?

Corey is going with Cena.  Byron is going with Rusev.  He has beaten 6 former World Champions.  Booker T says it won’t be easy for Cena.  Rusev is unstoppable.

Corey is going with Roman Reigns tonight.  Booker is going with D-Bry.  Byron is going with Reigns.

Tonight, on the FastLane Kick-Off show, Miz TV with Miz’s guest being Paul Heyman.

Tom Phillips is in the Social Media Lounge, and he will have an exclusive interview with the Tag Team Champions, The Uso’s.

Next, we get a HHH and Sting preview.

Later tonight, Sting and HHH will have a Face-To-Face, and we get the video of it.

What do we expect, tonight?  Nobody knows.

For whatever reason, there is now publicity over Seth Rollins’ comment this past Monday night, with saying he can take over the host of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.  Jon has his comments.

I will say this, Jon knows the product, which is very good.

Footage from this past Thursday night on Smackdown, with Rowan, Ziggler, and Ryback bonding together against The Authority.

Eden Stiles is backstage with Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan.

They have been fired, and re-hired.  Tonight, they face The Authority.  What would a win mean?

Ziggler said it would mean everything.  The Authority tries to tell us what’s best for business, but tonight they have a chance to shut them up.

Ryback said what’s best for business is all 3 men show off, show up, and take out The Authority.

Rowan brings up what is best is for The Authority to be expunged.

Can The Authority even lose, when they do lose?

Booker T brings up they still work for The Authority.  Do they want to get fired again?

Tonight, Miz TV with Paul Heyman being Miz’s guest.

We are in Memphis, Tennessee.  Renee Young interviewed Dean Ambrose, earlier tonight.

The Intercontinental Championship is very important for Dean.  It needs to be a stepping stone to the World Heavyweight Title, but it’s not.  This is about proving to the world he can do it.  He will fight Bad News Barrett in a parking lot of a Denny’s for the IC Title, now.

Dean believes the guy makes the championship and there hasn’t been a guy who could do that in a long time, but he is the guy.  Dean will show that, tonight.

World Tag Team Title preview is on now.

Also tonight, Divas Title is on the line.  Paige Vs Nikki Bella.

Earlier today, Byron interviewed The Bella Twins.

Nikki is confident in her chances, tonight.

Corey brings up Paige won’t be intimidated by them, she is already a 2-time Divas Champion, and she hasn’t been on the roster for a full year yet.

Next, Cena Vs Rusev preview.

Tom Phillips is now with The Uso’s.

They are truly excited to see their father, Rikishi being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Another highlight moment of them was The Uso’s dancing with their father.

What was the biggest challenge of the two growing up.  Sharing everything, and butting heads.

The Uso’s Vs Cesaro and Kidd, tonight.

Earlier today, Eva Marie and Cameron were a part of the Oscars pre-show.

Miz TV with Paul Heyman, is next.

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

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

Miz TV, with Miz and Damien Mizdow is next.

Miz orders Mizdow to sit in the corner.  Miz tells us he had a chance to be at the Oscars tonight, but chose to be here instead.  Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is filling in.

Miz brings out Paul Heyman.

Miz asks Heyman is Brock Lesnar will be here tonight, at WWE FastLane.

Ladies and gentlemen, for the record his name is Paul Heyman.  And his undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion, his client “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar is not here tonight.

The Miz reminds Heyman he has won in the main event at Wrestlemania as WWE Champion, so he wants to know who Brock would prefer to face at Mania.  Daniel Bryan, a man who is as big as Brock’s one leg, but he did defeat HHH at last year’s Wrestlemania.  Then defeat Randy Orton and Batista, or Roman Reigns.

Heyman said Brock is not concerned, but Heyman doesn’t like how Mizdow is looking at him.

Miz orders Mizdow to turn around and face the turnbuckle.

Mizdow does that.

Now, Heyman is discussing Reigns.  He knows about Roman’s heritage, even more about it when Roman being alive.  But his fate will be the same as Daniel’s, if he wins tonight.  Lesnar will still win at Wrestlemania.

The two shake hands, and the segment ends.

Brian Vs Reigns video is showing.

FastLane is next.

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

6-man tag match kicks things off.  Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan Vs Rollins, Big Show, and Kane kicks off the show.

The Authority win the match when Big Show knocked out Ziggler, when the referee was trying to get Rollins out of the ring, and Kane pinned him.

Not the kind of ending I wanted to see, but then again, WWE will never push Ziggler like they should.

Rollins hits another Curb Stomp on Ziggler, and now they are taking care of Ryback.

Randy Orton comes back, and takes care of The Authority with a RKO on J & J Security, along with Kane.  Seth Rollins is leaving this entire building, as Orton is back in a vengeance.

Wrestlemania is 35 days away.

Stardust Vs Goldust is up now.

Dusty Rhodes is with Goldust in the locker room.  He never thought these two would face each other.  So do what you have to do, but don’t hurt him.  Because at the end of all this, he loves both men.  Goldust appreciates everything Dusty has done.  But tonight, he isn’t facing Cody, he is facing Stardust.  Tonight, he isn’t leaving that ring until he brings back Cody.

Dusty reminds him, no matter what happens, he loves both men.

Stardust Vs Goldust, now.

Goldust wins the match with a rollup.  Stardust is a bit confused, it seemed like the ref sort of messed up here, because the third count was not as effective as the others.  Stardust walked away from Goldust.

Once again, we see footage this week with John Stewart and Seth Rollins.

I have no clue why, but we get this again.  Does this mean it’s Rollins Vs Stewart at Wrestlemania?

We get backstage again, Dusty and Dustin are talking.  Cody attacks Dustin now.  Stardust tells his father he killed Cody, when he sent Goldust with him.  Stardust is not living in Dusty’s shadow anymore.  Dusty is living in Stardust’s shadow.

Stardust kicks Dustin again, and Dusty wants some help.

World Tag Team Title match is up now.  The Uso’s Vs Cesaro and Kidd.

Tyson and Cesaro win the match when Tyson pins Jey Uso, after Cesaro took out Jimmy Uso.

A good match here, Tyson and Cesaro are new Tag Team champions.

Now comes the fact-to-face moment between HHH and Sting.

Behold the King….The King of Kings.

On your knees, punk.

HHH makes his appearance.

Last week on Raw, HHH was confronted by Ric Flair, one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.  He pushed Ric Flair.  He will apologize to Flair, but not apologize for what he said.

He stands here, not as the boss of WWE, he stands here as The Game….as The King of Kings.  And he stands here to wait on Sting.

Here comes Sting.

Let’s get down to this, as HHH says.  He knows why Sting is here.  He’s not mad at him, and in fact he feels sorry for him.

Sting was a lonely soldier to WCW.  He was WCW.  And when the time came, he held his head up, and went when the ship went down.  He respects that.  And the truth is, HHH was partly responsible for that.  His legacy is a part of why Sting’s company went down.  Which is why Sting made sure he and his wife went down at Survivor Series.  Without them, WWE would go down.  And if that happens, Sting would fail, again.

So how about HHH gives Sting’s legacy back, by walking away.  He assures Sting’s legacy will live forever, through WWE Network, through DVd’s, through merchandise.

He would assure Sting’s legacy would be bigger now in 2015 than it ever was.  And HHH can assure Sting would get to the Hall of Fame someday.

Or, as HHH takes off his jacket, they can do it the other way.  Sting continues to look at HHH the way he is, and he beats him down until Sting is carried away.  And they take his legacy away.

And by the look on Sting’s face, he already made his mind up.  It’s funny, because Ric Flair said….

HHH and Sting fight each other, with HHH knocking Sting down.

It’s sledge-hammer time.

And Sting has his trusty bat.

Oh, I am loving this.

HHH drops the sledge-hammer.

Sting points to Wrestlemania.

Oh shit, this is awesome.

Sting walks away, HHH tries to attack him, but Sting has an answer with the bat.

Now Scorpion Death Drop.

Business has just picked up.

Road to Wrestlemania has finally begun.

Daniel Bryan is warming up for his match tonight.

What we just saw was awesome.  WWE Network is approaching one year anniversary.

Earlier tonight, Paul Heyman was a guest of Miz TV.

Divas Title is up now, Paige Vs Nikki Bella.

Nikki wins the match with holding some tights.  So we have the Bella Twins again call Paige a loser.

How is a 2-time Divas Champion a loser, is beyond me though.

Eva Marie and Cameron are at the Oscars tonight.  They might as well since neither woman wrestles much.

Breaking news at WWE FastLane, HHH Vs Sting is official for Wrestlemania 31.

Dean Ambrose Vs Bad News Barrett for the IC Title is up now.

Rudy Charles called for the bell when Ambrose wouldn’t stop at the 5 count.  So Barrett keeps his IC Title, and wins by DQ.

Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds, and takes Wade’s IC Title.

Roman Reigns is warming up for his match tonight.

The lights go out, and we see droids head to ringside.

Could it be?

The gongs sound off, smoke hits around ringside.

We see a casket, with 2 people rolling it out to ringside.

The casket opens up, and it’s Bray Wyatt.

There is a wicked feeling in the air tonight.  Can you feel it?  Bray will never forget the first time he saw him.

He made Bray tremble, he was so cold.  Behind him, there was nothing but darkness.  And he feared him.  But now, he has become like everyone else.  Weak and broken.  He has now become just like everyone else, a mere mortal.  And now, his soul is lost.  Stunk in limbo, between us and the super natural.  It’s time to go home, and Bray’s mission has become clear.

He knows he can hear him, and he knows he is listening.  Bray doesn’t fear him anymore.  Bray Wyatt is the new fear.  And at Wrestlemania, he will claim the new soul of The Undertaker.

The FastLane panel join us now.

Next, the United States Championship is on the line.  John Cena Vs Rusev.

Rusev wins the match when Cena would not submit to The Accolade.  Lana comes to the ring, to distract Charles Robinson and Rusev kicked Cena in the balls, then kicked him in the head, slapped The Accolade on again.  This time, Cena passed out.

The best ending to this match that could have happened.  It protects both men, and more importantly, Rusev picks up the win.

Officials are checking on Cena, as he slowly gets back up.

Cena shakes off the officials help and is walking under his own power.  In disbelief over what just happened.

35 days away from Wrestlemania.

WWE FastLane Kick-off panel joins us now too.  3 things we know for sure.  1.  Randy Orton returned to WWE.  2.  Sting will face HHH at Wrestlemania.  3.  Rusev defeated Cena tonight.

Our main event, Daniel Bryan Vs Roman Reigns.  The winner faces Brock Lesnar, at Wrestlemania is now.

Reigns wins the match with a wicked spear after Bryan tried a running kick.

A very surprising ending here, because I thought for sure they were going with a Triple Threat match for Wrestlemania.  I guess not.

A good match here, with an exciting ending.

Daniel makes this clear after the match.  Reigns BETTER….BETTER kick Brock Lesnar’s ass, and shook his hand.

I loved that ending there.

The main event for Wrestlemania is set.  Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns.  That’s a money match, can Reigns capitalize?

Will The Undertaker answer Bray Wyatt’s challenge?  And also confirmed, for Wrestlemania 31.  Sting Vs HHH, one on one.

The show ends here, Wrestlemania is 35 days away.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The true meaning of this PPV tonight was to set the stage for Wrestlemania.  And they did that.  Let’s face it, Sting and HHH made this show, with that segment alone.  Bray Wyatt did his part, challenging The Undertaker, making it crystal clear he wants Taker at Mania, even daring him to answer the challenge.  Rusev made Cena pass out, and defeated him.  And the main event is clear, it will be Lesnar Vs Reigns, at Wrestlemania.

Now, the challenge to WWE is to make the next 5 weeks compelling TV.  There is no excuse, NONE, but to make every segment, every show entertaining, and feel important.  This includes Smackdown too, which since they moved to Thursday nights have been underwhelming.

The Road to Wrestlemania has truly begun now.  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.

Impact Wrestling 2/20/15…20 Man Gautnlet Battle Royal

A video is playing, centering around the Gauntlet Battle Royal tonight.  The top 5 this week will determine the final 5 spots.  EC3 will enter at 16, as number 5 contender.  Samoa Joe is at 17, as number 4.  Lo-Ki will enter as number 18, with contender number 3.  MVP will come in at 19, so BDC will rule the last part of the Battle Royal.  And Kurt Angle will be number 20, he is the current Number One Contender.

Kurt Angle comes out, to say that he came back to be the TNA World Champion and he will win the Battle Royal tonight.  It’s real, it’s damn real.

Lashley is backstage, he needs to find Kurt and have a little talk with him.

6-Man tag action of Matt Hardy and The Wolves facing “Cowboy” James Storm, Abyss, and Manik.

The Wolves and Hardy win when Hardy hits a Twist of Fate, and The Wolves nail a foot Stomp, pinning Manik.

After the match, Storm ordered Abyss to hit a Black Hole Slam after The Revolution took out the 3 victorious ones on Manik.  Punishment for taking the fall.

20 Man Battle Royal tonight to determine the new Number One Contender.

Ladies and gentlemen, EC3.

Trouble…..trouble….trouble…..

Ethan is not in a good mood, because he had a chance to cut Spud’s hair, but someone got into his business when he didn’t need to.  And that someone will pay for it.

Mr. Anderson enters.

That someone has a name, that someone has a family.  That someone is from Green Bay, Wisconsin. That someone is MRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR….. Andersooooooooooooon!!

Anderson tells EC3 that he shaved JB’s head, tried to shave Spud’s hair.  So how about Anderson shaves EC3’s hair?

Anderson shows him he has a razor to go with it.  But EC3 has Tyrus to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Spud and Mandrews are behind EC3, and they deck him, while Anderson has a hold of Tyrus.  Tyrus tries to fight back, but Anderson comes in and nails a Mic Check, while they now shave Tyrus’ head, with EC3 watching outside of the ring.

Spud tells him that Tyrus was the fastest customer in the Rockstar Spud’s barber shop, and EC3 is next.

BDC talk, they will control the Battle Royal, and come out on top, because they can.

Mickie James is outside of the building, she is here to discuss Magnus’ condition, so stay tuned.

Last month, we saw Bram take out Magnus.

It’s now Al Snow Vs Grado.

Grado wins the match with what he calls a Wii kick.  He reminds me of Trevor Murdoch, even looks like him.

After the match, Al Snow raised his arm up in the air, but the BDC come out and laid them out.

But some guy in a hoodie come out with a crow bar, and nails Lo-Ki.  The guy reveals himself to be Drew Galloway, the wrestler formerly known as Drew McIntyre.

Coming up next, Angelina Love will attempt to be a 7-time Knockout Champion when she faces Taryn Terrell.

Angelina and her boys all take a selfie, with Awesome Kong lurking in the background.

Taryn wins with a Cutter, retaining her title.

But here comes Awesome Kong.  Taryn tries to fight, but Kong just overpowers her, and hits an Impact Buster.

But here comes Gail Kim to make sure Kong doesn’t take the Knockout Title.

Gail Kim Vs Kong would always make me happy.

Lo-Ki has to have stitches in his ear to heal up the wound he has.

Tonight, 20 Man Battle Royal Gauntlet to determine the Number One Contender for the World Title.

The wrestlers discuss the match.

Tommy Dreamer heads to the ring.

Last time Tommy was in this ring, he was dropped on his head, and his neck was hurt.  Eric Young, come out and fight now.

Eric Young Vs Tommy Dreamer is now.

EY wins the match with a piledriver, and beat a bloody Dreamer. A good brawl between the two.

Lashley is heading into his locker room, and Mickie James is coming out next.

We see footage between Magnus and Bram the last few months.

Hardcore Country!!

Mickie James makes her TNA return.

Mickie is here to talk about what has happened with Bram. She had an incredible year, she has a beautiful son. She became engaged, and the fans boo over that. But a few weeks ago, her fiancée’s so-called “best friend” beat him down, and left him in an alley.

Bram calls himself a man’s man, but where she comes from, he is nothing but a coward.

Bram comes out to the ring.

Bram has a cue ball.

All of the times when Magnus was there for Bram, and he does this? He has nerve damage, and can’t even hold his own son.

Bram needed Magnus to open his eyes. When he grew up with Magnus, he was a whiskey-drinking fighting machine. And now, he is a pansy. He blames this on Mickie, because he is stuck with her. He is stuck with a bratty kid, and a redneck.

Mickie brings up Bram knows deep down, Magnus would beat his ass, and deep down, Bram is nothing but a little bitch.

Bram has the cue ball and corners Mickie, but Mickie slaps him.

Lashley is with Kurt Angle, and seems taken aback about nobody being able to stop Kurt. Lashley is the World Heavyweight Champion.

Kurt respects Lashley’s accomplishments, and he respects he is the World Heavyweight Champion. But Lashley has never been in the ring with Kurt, and next week he is going for gold.

Lashley will just back off, and watch this happen.

20-man Battle Royal is next.

MVP wins the Battle Royal, after some distractions from BDC, who stayed out there after Kurt Angle eliminated every one of them at the end.

Lashley is watching on, and next week it will be MVP Vs Lashley for the World Title.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A better show tonight than last week. Some nice surprises with a new debuting wrestler, not to mention a returning Knockout.

Next week, MVP Vs Lashley should be a good match, and we will see where we go from here.

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

WWE Thursday Night Smackdown 2/19/15…The Final Road To Fastlane

We begin the show from the brawl we saw this past week on Raw.  We are 3 nights away from Fastlane.  Smackdown is now.

We are in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.  Daniel Bryan kicks the show off.

Daniel is set to face The Miz, one on one.

Daniel made Miz tap out to the Yes Lock.  It’s sad a one time Wrestlemania main eventer, who worked 20-30 minute matches is now working 4 minute matches, and tapping out with ease.

Anyway…

Daniel Bryan is looking at the Wrestlemania sign, and tonight we will see Roman Reigns Vs Roman Reigns.

Also tonight, Dolph Ziggler Vs Seth Rollins with J & J Security banned from ringside.

Feed Me More!!

Wake up, it’s feeding time.

Ryback is in action, next.

Ryback vs Kane, now.

Ryback wins with Shellshock, pinning Kane.

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

Footage from this past Monday night on Raw, with Dean Ambrose and Bad News Barrett.  These two will lock up for the IC Title at Fastlane.

Dean Ambrose comes out to the ring.

Bad News Barrett is in action, with Ambrose on commentary, next.

It’s Barrett Vs R-Truth.

Truth rolls up Barrett, who was distracted by Ambrose.  I guess we know now why Truth had his entrance shown, and not Barrett.

Next, Rusev was crushed, from Raw this past Monday.

Footage from this past Monday night on Raw, when John Cena crushed Rusev.

Bray Wyatt promo, who is singing about The Reaper.  He sings that to his pets, before he puts them down.  He tells him to find him, before Bray find him.

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

But now, it’s a new day to be losing, or so they say.

The New Day will now face The Ascension.

Fall of Man, match is over with.  Conor pins Big E.

Luke Harper Vs Roman Reigns is next.

Reigns wins the match with a spear.

Footage from this past Monday night.  Sting is in HHH’s head, evidence of HHH even shoving his good friend, Ric Flair.

This Sunday night, there will be a Face-To-Face with Sting and HHH.

The Big Show Vs Erick Rowan is now.

Big Show dominates Rowan, knocking him out.

Still to come tonight, Rollins Vs Ziggler, with J & J Security barred from ringside.

Paige Vs Cameron, with The Bellas doing commentary.

PTO, Paige wins with ease.  Girl, bye.

The Rhodes Brothers struggle.  Footage from Raw with Stardust turning his back on family.

Renee Young is standing by with Goldust.

Goldust will face Stardust, one on one this Sunday night at Fastlane.

Goldust knows what Stardust is going through.  He has been down that road himself, but they started winning matches together, started to win titles together.  Then darkness crept in, he saw it a mile away because it has happened to him.  Stardust is eating his brother Cody alive.  And now Goldust has to do something that is most difficult thing in his career, and that is to beat Stardust at Fastlane.

Stardust isn’t impressed with this.  He tells Goldust that at Fastlane, Cody won’t be the only one to exist, the anser is Goldust.

Jimmy Uso Vs Tyson Kidd is up now.

Rusev destroys all four men in the ring, to give this a no contest.

I believe Rusev, who was speaking Russian said he will destroy John Cena this Sunday, but there wasn’t a translator, so….

Rollins Vs Ziggler is next.

Rollins wins the match with a Curbstomp. Kane and Big Show came out, as did Rowan and Ryback.

After the match, all six men brawled with Rollins, Kane, and Big Show getting the better end. My guess is these six men will face off at Fastlane, but if they mentioned it on Smackdown, I missed it.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Once again, not much of a show. We didn’t even have an interaction with Reigns and Bryan, especially considering they are in the main event this Friday, and they had a brawl this past Monday.

So if they don’t care, why should I?
