Impact Wrestling 2/9/16…Angle Vs Galloway II

We are in Manchester, England tonight.  Tonight, Kurt Angle continues his Kurt Angle Farewell Tour and will face Drew Galloway.

Josh Matthews and The Pope welcome us to the show, and we kick the show off with Matt Hardy, and his family.

He didn’t sell out, he was already a millionaire.  And he’s not here to defend his World Heavyweight Title.  He is here for business.  The Matt Hardy Brand will show Impact Wrestling Brand how to conduct good business, because The Matt Hardy Brand means more than Impact Wrestling Brand.

Boo him all you want, the same idiots who boo “The Iconic” Matt Hardy are the same idiots that cheer EC3.

Tyrus tell us that we cheer EC3, but Tyrus is the one who made him the undefeated, unbroken, unpinnable, and cool again.  Matt Hardy doesn’t need his help, because he is family.

Reby tell us we are all just jealous, and Hardy tells us he is the one who beat EC3.  He was undefeated, he was unbreakable, unbendable, and he did everything by the book.  In the last 3 weeks, Matt took care of EC3, Jeff Hardy, and Kurt Angle.  And Dixie Carter still hasn’t even spoken to him since he won the World Title.

He isn’t going anywhere, until Dixie Carter comes out.  Lesson 101 in doing great business, you get rid of the “cancer”.  And she needs to make the World Champion happy.  And what is the one thing she needs to do?  Fire EC3.

Tonight, it’s the return of EC3, we will also see Angle Vs Galloway II.

But now, Lashley vs Bram, and it’s next.

Lashley wins the match with a spear.  Eric Young tried to interfere, but Lashley gives him a spear, for good measure.

Backstage, Matt Hardy is a bit concerned over EC3 showing up, but Tyrus has his back, and brings in Manchester’s security.

EC3 will return tonight, and we will also see Angle Vs Galloway II.

Kurt Angle comes to the ring.

The fans are making it difficult to see him say farewell, but he is.  He has a saying, it’s real, it’s damn real.

He is so proud of what has accomplished, and he thanks the crowd for supporting him.

Everyone knows Kurt is going to wrestle Bobby Lashley and Bobby Roode, but tonight, his opponent will be….

Maria Kanellis Bennett says the crowd understands what he is saying, they feel what he is saying.  But she feels what Kurt is saying is fake, and manufactured.  What the fans need is “The Miracle” Mike Bennett.

Mike was listening to Kurt in the back, and he has had a hell of a career.  He remembers when he was growing up in New England, the better, and more advanced England.  He was a kid, and watched Kurt, he gave his brother an Angle Slam, and put him in an Angle Lock.  He studied him, and saw Kurt beat legend after legend, and he studied Kurt’s every match, and he said to his mom, one day he is going to grow up, and beat that guy.

Kurt warned him, to get away from his face.

Kurt is missing the point, what Kurt accomplished, no ordinary man can do that, but Mike is extraordinary.

Let’s take a look at Kurt’s opponents, Bobby Lashley, that is one, bad mamma jamma, Kurt.  There is Bobby Roode, one of the greatest TNA wrestlers of all-time.  But then there is Mike Bennett.  Think of it like this, Kurt Angle Vs Mike Bennett, for the first time, and the last time.  When Mike beats Kurt, the fans will be asking….

Do you believe in miracles?

Yes, we do.

Kurt tells Maria she is very beautiful, but has a poor choice of men.

Maria tells Kurt he is “The Miracle”.

Oh right, and he swings a punch at Mike.

Kurt makes this clear, he’s not wrestling Mike, because he doesn’t respect him.

And his opponent tonight, he does respect this man, Drew Galloway.

Drew shows up, later tonight.

Beer Money is backstage, Roode got Storm a present.  It’s not pyro, it’s not a stripper, it’s not even a car.

It’s the return of The Bruiser Cruiser.

Trevor Lee Vs Tigre Uno, for the X-Division Title is now.

Trevor wins with the Fisherman’s Buster.  A good match, but should have been longer.

Tonight, the return of EC3, also Angle Vs Galloway II.

But now, Beer Money.

Beer Money want to cash in their tag team title shot, but here comes The Decay.

They still have the physical Tag Team Titles.

Rosemary tells us everyone is obsessed with these pretty, little toys.  But everything that is pretty turns to rot, and that is what happens in their world.

While they have the titles in their possession, they aren’t the Tag Team Champions, and neither are Beer Money.  So while they have a ref, they suggest they fight.

The fight starts now.

The Decay are DQ’d after Beer Money hit a DWI.  Abyss interferes, and the ref DQ’d them.

Rosemary has the titles, and Crazzy Steve gave Storm a low blow.  And with the appearance of Janice, The Wolves come out with chairs.  But they won’t hit Rosemary, so they leave with the Tag Titles.

Davey tells The Decay they have something that belongs to them, and something that belongs to The Wolves Nation.  And that is the Tag Team Titles.

Eddie Edwards tells them they want their titles back, but in return they will give them a Tag Title shot.

Abyss says they do it next week, for all of the gold in Monster’s Ball.

Let the hunt begin.

Angle Vs Galloway, tonight.

Reby approaches Dixie Carter.

Reby asks Dixie if she just keeps an open mind, when Matt talks to her.

The idiot Grado shows up.

TNA fired him, and they screwed him.  But, Grado will tell us he has proof he was screwed.

Eli Drake interrupts this.

He is a man who was fired, yet he is begging for us to give him some mercy.  He will give him some mercy by having security escort him out of the building.

Grado runs around the ring, and escapes from security.

Drew Galloway says the first match is about respect, but tonight, it’s about opportunity.  He has been called “The Future” for so long, it’s time to think of the present.  Tonight, Drew Galloway beats Kurt Angle.

Madison Rayne Vs Jade, now.

Jade wins with a Cradle Piledriver.

Now The Dollhouse attack Rayne.

But here comes Gail Kim to help Madison Rayne.

Gail takes out all three women.

EC3 returns tonight, and next, it will be Angle Vs Galloway.

Billy Corgan was being interviewed, but Grado tells Billy he was screwed.

Our main event, Kurt Angle Vs Drew Galloway is now.

Galloway wins the match with a Crossface, and Kurt congratulates him at the end of the match.

The return of EC3, what is his fate?  We find out, next.

Next week, Tag Team Titles are on the line, The Wolves Vs The Decay, in a Monster’s Ball Match.

The Family are in the ring, and Matt Hardy calls for Dixie Carter to head to the ring, now.

Matt is a global name in this industry, he is the face of the company.  He knows what works, and he is our World Heavyweight Champion.

And the last world champion, he can’t even say his 3 letters.

The fans chant EC3.

He treated Dixie like trash, when he won the title.  And when Matt beat him fairly at Bound for Glory, he issued an injunction, and put you in a bad spot.  He wants to have a good working relationship with Matt.  He wants Dixie to look at the camera, and fire EC3, now.

Don’t be a flaking bimbo, fire EC3 NOW!!

Enter Rockstar Spud.

He hasn’t said this in a long time, but I got this Madame.

What’s going on Matt, this isn’t the Matt Hardy he looked up to.

Spud will always look up to Matt, boy.

If Spud isn’t here to be a character witness to say EC3 is garbage, he might as well leave now.

Spud has agreed, EC3 has done some terrible things, most of them he has done to him.

Fire EC3 now.

No, because while EC3 does and says the things he says, he think that Matt Hardy is scared of EC3, he thinks Matt Hardy is acting like a little bitch.

Tyrus attacks him from behind, and Matt corners Dixie, ordering she fires EC3.


The spotlight is on, EC3 is on the ramp, but he is here to kick ass.  He takes care of the security, he takes care of Tyrus, Matt runs away, and EC3 heads out of the ring, and the show closes with EC3 posing on the top ramp.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The run for EC3 continues, but this time, he is a babyface.  I love too he didn’t say anything, came in, kicked ass, and then left.  And Angle Vs Galloway highlighted this show too.

It’s a shame though we will never see Angle Vs Bennett.  That could have been a good match, Bennett stood out too, looking forward to seeing what he can do more in the ring.

A good show tonight, what were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.




















WWE Monday Night Raw 2/8/16…A Sombering Return broke the news this morning that Daniel Bryan will be here tonight, in his home city, of Seattle, Washington, making an announcement that his WWE career is done.  I am not looking forward to hearing that news.

Raw is now.

We get a nice video of Daniel Bryan, before Raw starts.

And we get yet another pointless promo from Stephanie McMahon.

The official contract signing with Roman Reigns Vs Dean Ambrose Vs Brock Lesnar.

But the fans want to chant Daniel Bryan, and we get no jokes from Stephanie.

I take that back, she said Seattle fans are confused, the winner of Fastlane will not face Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania, but the winner of this match will face her husband, the reigning and defending WWE World Heavyweight Champion, HHH.

Dean Ambrose interrupts Stephanie’s speech.

Dean is tired of waiting, he wants Brock to come out now.  Stephanie tells him that she is his boss, and there will be no physicality at all.  She does the intros.

Roman Reigns now interrupts the fun.

Reigns wants to sign the contract, and Stephanie reminds Dean that Roman is trying to steal his spotlight, so come on out Brock Lesnar.

Here Comes The Pain!!

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is….

Yeah yeah, says Stephanie, we already know what your name is.  Let’s get this contract signing going.

All three men sign the contracts, and Stephanie walks away.

So it’s time for Heyman to have some fun.

Little brother, maybe you should ask big brother Roman, the difference between a beatdown of The Authority and a beatdown of the hands of BRRRRROOOOOOOOCK LESNAR!!!

Ambrose gets into Brock’s face, Brock shoves Ambrose into Reigns.  Brock throws a table at Reigns, and gives Ambrose a F-5.

Now comes the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, HHH.

Daniel Bryan made the statement earlier today that he is retiring, and will be here tonight.

Wrestlers responded through Twitter today.

Daniel Bryan will address the WWE Universe, tonight.

Footage of Daniel Bryan’s NXT debut from 2010.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw.  Lesnar F-5’s Ambrose.

Dean is upset about it backstage.  Before this night is over, Ambrose is going to get Brock Lesnar.

Owens Vs Ziggler, now.

Ziggler used the ropes to pick up the victory over Owens, again.

Tonight, a Tables match with The Usos Vs New Day.  We will also see Miz TV, with Miz’s guest being Chris Jericho.

And Daniel Bryan will announce hie retirement tonight, we see where Daniel defeated The Miz at Night of Champions 2010, and became the United States Champion, over The Miz.

The Usos are met up with The Dudleys.  They want the tables match, not The Usos.

The Dudleys ask that they team up with The Usos tonight against The New Day in a tables match.

Tonight, Bray Wyatt faces Ryback, and we take a look at the big guy.

Now, it’s Charlotte in action, next.

Charlotte Vs Alicia Fox is now.

Charlotte Vs Brie Bella is set in 2 weeks, at Fastlane.

Charlotte wins with the Figure Eight, making Foxy tap.

The Miz is getting ready for MizTV, next.

It’s official, an 8-man tag match with Dudleys and Usos Vs New Day and a partner of their choosing in a tables match.

MizTV is now.

Usually, MizTV is about where a superstar can vent, and do whatever they want, but last week, we saw what AJ Styles did to The Miz.

Miz offered to take that redneck rookie straight to the red carpet, and this is the thanks he got?  He could have take AJ Styles to the next level, look at what he did for Daniel Bryan.  Miz is an A-Lister.

Here comes Chris Jericho.

Miz, that was a tremendous introduction, except the part where he talks about Jericho, and says anything entertaining.

I was going to talk about you….

Will you please shut the hell up.

Miz, he listened to him talk, and he realized something.  The fans don’t want to see MizTV, they want to see The Highlight Reel.

And just like that, they changed sets.

Welcome to Raw is Jericho.

Tonight, his guest is….

Miz is not Jericho’s guest, this is his show.  This isn’t right.

Jericho said there is something missing.  Okay, how about potted plant.

Chair, given to him by Roman Reigns.  A nice plotted plant, given to him by Dean Ambrose.

Miz had a tough week last week.  He had 2 big losses, one to AJ Styles on Smackdown, and the other when he lost his tooth through a punch by AJ.

We see the clip of that, and Miz tells us how expensive his tooth was.  He also had a meeting with Spielberg, Steven Spielberg.  But he wants to thank his expensive dentists to get that fixed.

Jericho is laughing, Miz is not amused.  But Miz reminds us Jericho too had a rough week, when he lost to “The Phenomenal One”.

Roll the clip, monkeys.

AJ Styles may have been a big fish in a small pond, but he just beat the great white shark, Chris Jericho in his WWE Raw debut.

It must be eating Chris alive.

Chris admits it is, and he hasn’t stopped thinking about it in 2 weeks.  We know AJ is good, but is he great?  Can he do the impossible, and beat Chris Jericho twice?  He needs to prove that Jericho is the best in the world at what he does,

AJ comes out, and Miz gives Chris a cheap shot, and AJ and Chris work together, to get Miz out of the ring.

But Chris slaps AJ, and the two trade blows.

Styles throws Jericho out of the ring, and Chris goes after Miz again.  But now, Chris walks away.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, Styles Vs Jericho II.

Earlier tonight, we see Lesnar take out Reigns and Ambrose.  Dean makes the guarantee that at the end of tonight, he will get Brock Lesnar.

Ambrose will be in action, next.

But we see more of Daniel Bryan’s crowning moments, when he won Money in the Bank 2011.

And he cashed in the title chance 5 months later, in December of 2011.

Ryback Vs Bray Wyatt is now.

Bray wins with Sister Abigail.

Now it’s time to get Ryback.

Ryback is surrounded by all four men, the mauling continues.

Bray speaks out, saying there is nothing we can do except pray that they show us mercy.

Can you feel it?

Follow the Buzzards.

More Daniel Bryan highlights.  The form of Team Hell No.

More comments from superstars and celebrities.  Tonight, Daniel Bryan addresses the universe.

New Day is working on the table.

On the other side of the universe, Ambrose is pacing back and forth.  He tells Ambrose he will get Brock tonight.

Reigns wants to work with Ambrose, but Dean wants him all to himself.  Reigns tells Dean to give him hell, and save himself some.

Titus O’ Neil is in action, next.

Titus O’ Neil Vs Adam Rose is now.

Adam Rose wins an upset, when Social Outcasts distract Titus, and Adam rolls him up for the win.

Dean Ambrose is looking to get some from Brock Lesnar.

More footage of Daniel Bryan, when he beat Cena at Summerslam 2013.

WWE is honoring Black History Month in February.

Here comes “The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose, and he has a purpose.

What did you call that Brock, an F-2?  F-3?  It sure wasn’t a F-5 because I thought it was to keep me down.  Brock Lesnar can’t get the job done.  So come on out here, and this time, put some stank on it.

No Brock Lesnar.

Maybe HHH was right, Suplex City has gone soft.  Brock Lesnar has gone soft, that sounds like a personal problem.  What is the matter Brock, you can’t get it up for a big fight?

I guess Paul Heyman didn’t give him permission, he knows that Paul is his agent and all, but it seems like Heyman carries his balls.

Here Comes The Pain!!

Another fight, when Brock destroys Ambrose, and ends with a F-5.

Okay, maybe F-3, cause Ambrose wants more.

Here comes Roman Reigns.

Ambrose gives Lesnar a low blow, and leaves.

Tonight, 8-man Tables Tag Match.  The Dudleys and The Usos Vs The New Day and another partner.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw….Ambrose giving Brock a low blow.

13 days away, at Fastlane, a Triple Threat match to determine who faces HHH at Wrestlemania.  Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns Vs Dean Ambrose.

But now, it’s The Lucha Dragons Vs Del Rio and Rusev.

Del Rio and Rusev wins when Del Rio pins Kalisto with his double foot stomp.

Earlier today, R-Truth was at the Seattle museum, and sees Goldust, dressed as Jimmi Hendrix.

Goldust gets arrested, for breaking Purple Haze.

Golden Truth.

Sasha Banks is joining commentary, next.

Daniel Bryan’s Yes Movement, from March of 2014 is being shown.

Becky Lynch Vs Tamina is now.

Tamina wins with a kick, after Sasha gets into it with Naomi.  Becky helps Sasha out, but comes back into the ring, and is met with a kick from Tamina.

These four battle it out at Fastlane.

The New Day chooses Mark Henry.

He is now playing Francesca II.

More messages from superstars and celebrities.

This Thursday on Smackdown, it will be AJ Styles Vs Chris Jericho.

8-man tag match is now.  The Dudleys and The Usos Vs The New Day and Mark Henry.

The crowd chants New Day Rocks.  Tonight won’t be a table for 3.  Because they will be serving for 4.

And now the strongest unicorn, Mark Henry.

Mark Henry walks out on his partners, Dudleys and Usos win when they put Big E. through a table, and then The Dudleys turn on The Usos.

They put Jimmy through a table, and ask him if he knows who they are…..They are The Dudley Boyz, and they are the baddest tag team on the planet.

A wonderful Daniel Bryan video is playing, going over his career.

The crowd gives us a Yes Movement, and he addresses the universe, next.

News outlets broke the news this afternoon.

And here comes the man, Daniel Bryan.

The crowd is chanting Daniel Bryan, while Daniel just lets it all soak in.

Nobody connects to the fans, like Daniel Bryan.  Very surreal.

He was able to just close his eyes, and feel it, something he has never done before.

But now it is time to address the giant elephant in the room.

He didn’t want to shave his beard either.  But he wanted to cut his hair, and when he did, he looked silly with that big bear.  He cut his hair for  They make wigs for kids, who have cancer, and they don’t charge the parents for that.

So now for less fun stuff.  He has been wrestling since he was 18 years old.  And within the first 5 months of his career, he had 3 concussions.  And every now and then, he’d get a concussion, and when you wrestle for 16 years, it adds to many concussions.  And it gets to a point, they tell you he can’t wrestle anymore.  He fought it many different times, because he would get MRIs, EKG, and they would say he is fine.  So he did everything he could to be ready in case WWE needs him.  Because this, is something he has loved more than anything else.

But a week and a half ago, he found out his brain isn’t as good as he thought.  So he has a family to think about, and they are going to have kids soon.  That is what Brie says all the time.

That’s what she says chants are taking place.

So, it is with a heavy heart and the utmost sadness that Daniel officially announces his retirement.  But if there is one thing, he woke up this morning with nothing but gratitude.  Because he got to do what he loves, for nearly 16 years.

Daniel wants to tell us a few of the things he loves.  Nobody outside of this city, and this arena cares, but Daniel loves the Seahawks.

Here is something else he loves, right when his music begins, he gets a little smirk on his face, whether he is tired, or sore.  He loves that.  He also loves diving through the ropes, because that makes him feel like Superman, and he loves that.

Another thing he loves, he has wrestled in front of parking lots in gas stations.  And he has wrestled in front of 70,000 plus.  He also loves meeting such fantastic people, such as someone who looks like a monster, but is the smartest man he knows, like Kane.  He has gotten to know a mentor for him for 16 years, William Regal.

He got to meet kids who are stronger than he ever can imagine, like Connor.

He is very grateful, because wrestling doesn’t owe them anything.  WWE doesn’t owe them anything.  The fans don’t owe them anything, because they get to do what they love.

Daniel got to do his thing, and the fans got behind him, in a way that nobody should, when he is 5’8, and 198 pounds.  We got behind him in a way he was just born to be himself.  And for that, Daniel is grateful.  He is grateful because a little over 2 years ago, in this very arena, the fans hijacked Raw.

Yes Movement was in full effect.

And they were trying to do a big championship coronation with John Cena and Randy Orton.  This was going to be the biggest match in WWE history, and the fans wouldn’t stop chanting Daniel Bryan.

But that is not why he is grateful, his dad was standing right in that spot where the guy in the goat mask is standing right now.  His son, getting that kind of reaction from all of us.  And that was the last time his dad ever got to see him wrestle.  And we made that special for him, for Daniel, and for his entire family.

Daniel is grateful.

Daniel is grateful because of wrestling, he got to meet the most wonderful woman in the world.  She is beautiful, and smart, and she completes him more than anything in the world, and that is because of wrestling.  He is grateful.

Daniel is grateful, because he is what he considers in his hometown fans.  And he is sharing this moment with us.  He gets to share this moment with his mom, sister, and friends.  He gets to share this with us, with the wrestlers, with his wife, with the men and women he shared this ring with for 15 years.  Daniel is grateful.

Tomorrow, Daniel gets to spend a new part of his life when he wakes up, as not being a wrestler.  But that is tomorrow, so if he can get one last big yes chant going, he would appreciate it.

Yes!!  Yes!!  Yes!!

Brie comes out to give Daniel a kiss, and we end the show here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a fun show, and they set Fastlane up quite well, and that includes the Dudleys turning heel, which needed to happen.


We also had Dean make Brock a bit vulnerable, and it sets the tone for the Triple Threat, because anything can happen.

But really, this show was about Daniel Bryan.  I was hoping that he was not retiring, and we’d see another superstar come out, and challenge him to a match.  But it didn’t happen.  Bryan truly is retiring, and I want to thank him for giving us so many memories in his 16 years in the business.  You will be missed.

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
























































Impact Wrestling 2/2/16…Hardcore War

Earlier today, EC3 was backstage/  He asked the camera guy if he really wants to know what is going on his head.  Be here at 4:00, don’t be late.

The World Heavyweight Champion with his trio of terror.  Reby and Tyrus come out to the ring.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Sometimes in this business, you work with people you hate, and do things to people you hate.  

The crowd wants Jeff, and Matt tells us Jeff isn’t here, because he spoke out about how Matt was tarnishing the title, and he was met with a piledriver through a table, courtesy of Eric Young.

Reby tells us Jeff didn’t have to happen like this.  Some people say Matt was the “shadow” of Jeff for all of these years, and now that he is on top, Jeff was jealous of her husband.

Here comes Eric Young and Bram.

Jeff Hardy’s career is done because of Eric Young.  Bobby Roode lost his World Title because of him, and now Matt, the World Title goes through him.

Matt tells Eric he knows he is smarter than this.

Enter Kurt Angle.

Their business deal fell apart, and he has degraded that title.

Kurt talked to a TNA official, and he has his next opponent in the Kurt Angle Farewell Tour.  It will be Matt Hardy Vs Kurt Angle, for the World Title.

Matt was actually enjoying the Kurt Angle Farewell Tour, but this may end prematurely.

Kurt may be outnumbered right now, but he still believes he can kick any one of their asses.

Matt tells Kurt it’s 5 vs 1.

Beer Money.

The battle line has been drawn for Young and Bram, and tonight, they will fight.

Storm says they are all about kicking ass, and drinking beer.

Beer Money fight Bram and Young.  Kurt takes care of Hardy.  Here comes The Decay, but The Wolves fight them off.

Bobby says that while Kurt faces Hardy tonight, we will also have an 8-man tag in a Hardcore War match.

Last week, we see the Feast or Fired reveals.

Drew Galloway is talking about this opportunity last week.  He now has a World Title shot.  He controls his own destiny.

Tyrus confronts him, telling him to take his briefcase, set it down, and walk away.  Because that is a target.

Tyrus was the number one contender, he had his opportunity, but instead of taking that opportunity, he decided to sit in the back, and be everyone’s bitch.

Tyrus warns Drew he asked for this.

Lashley Vs Aiden O’ Shea.

Racquel came out to distract Lashley a bit, but Bobby hit s a spear, and win the match.

Racquel told him he’d see him again.  And the message remains the same.  She can give him pain, and she can give him pleasure.

Maria is on her way to the ring, next.

We will hear from EC3, later tonight.

Maria is not here to talk about a “miracle” but rather to talk about women’s wrestling.  Women’s wrestling is strong, but it needs a leader.  And her name is Maria Kanellis Bennett, and she is the first lady of professional wrestling.  The Knockout Division is old.  So out with the old, and in with the new.

Here comes Gail Kim.

Gail has known Maria for many years, she had alot of respect for her.  Until what she just said.

Maria tells Gail she is part of the problem, she is the leader of the Knockouts, but she is here to solve the problem.  With Maria’s help, Gail can be better.

Gail counters with she is a wrestler, and if Maria has an issue with her, step into the ring.

Tensions are rising here, and it ends with Gail shoving Maria out of the ring.

Meanwhile in the back, The Wolves have Beer Money’s back because they have common enemies, but down the road, the two teams will cross paths.

Then they get into a bit of an argument.

We will hear from EC3 tonight.  Also, for the World Title, Hardy Vs Angle.

8-man tag Hardcore War.  Beer Money and The Wolves Vs The Decay, Eric Young, and Bram.

Davey Richards and Crazzy Steve kick it off.

Bram is next.

Storm is in next.

Eric Young is in now.

Eddie Edwards shows up during the commercial.

Abyss is in now.

Roode is now.

The Decay, Young, and Bram steal the victory.  Beer Money took Young and Bram to the back.  Crazzy Steve threw purple mist into Davey’s eyes, Abyss nails Davey with a Tag Team Title, and Steve pins him.

Marilyn Manson did The Decay’s entrance theme.

Drew Galloway is showing support and respect to Kurt.  He is reminding Kurt that he can cash in his title shot, and they can tear the house down, one more time.

Tonight, Hardy Vs Angle, for the World Title.

But next, Galloway Vs Tyrus.

Tyrus loses by DQ when Maria shows up, telling Drew his miracle begins now.

The lights go out, come back on and Mike Bennett nails him with the briefcase.

Mike asks Drew if he believes in miracles, because he thought this would answer all of his dreams.  He believed this briefcase would answer to his miracle, and he would win World Title.  But this is not what TNA needs, Bennett is the miracle TNA needs.

Hardy Vs Angle tonight.

Kurt is proud of his accomplishments in TNA.  Lashley interrupts him, wishes his good luck in his world title match.  How fitting would it be if he were to beat Kurt for World Title at the same place as he beat him last year, UK.

X-Division Title match now.  Tigre Uno Vs Gregory Shane Helms?

He isn’t dressed for the occasion, Tigre agreed to put the title on the line, but he never said it would be against him.  But his opponent, the end of the night, Tigre will be calling him champ.

Trevor Lee.

Trevor Lee is the new X-Division champion, winning with a Fisherman’s Buster.

Hardy Vs Angle is next, but we hear from EC3, now.

For 2 weeks, EC3 has been reflecting.  2 and a half years, he has been unpinned, and couldn’t be stopped.  He realizes he had the advantages, and at times, he had been a little shit.

Unbeatable, unbreakable, unbendable, those were just words.  He just wants to win the most.  Winning is everything, and he wishes he can bottle it up.  Congratulations Matt Hardy, he beat him.  It took his wife, ladders, chairs, table, his bodyguard, his kid, but he still got up.

What matters most is his World Title.  But now what?  Does he take a few months off, and go on a boat.  He decides to take the fight, jump on a plane and become Matt Hardy’s shadow.  He is bringing hell, Matt Hardy, courtesy of EC3.

Hardy Vs Angle now, for the world title.

Hardy wins the match when Reby grabbed Kurt’s ankle, and Matt hits a Twist of Fate off the top rope.

The show ends with The Hardys celebrating the big win together.

Next week, Impact Wrestling travels to the UK.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A decent show here that featured a fun main event match.  I also liked EC3’s interview, and am looking forward to hearing the crowd when he is in front of an audience.

I love The Decay name too, it fits them perfectly, as does the entrance theme.  That woman’s name is Rosemary, so there you go.

Is Maria going after the Knockout Title?

Hardcore War was fun, and I can’t wait to see The Wolves Vs Beer Money.

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


























WWE Monday Night Raw 2/1/16…Suplex City Is Open For Business

The Road To Wrestlemania continues in the city of champions, Alabama.  Brock Lesnar returns tonight.  Now that we know the main event for Fastlane, what does this mean for Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose?

Raw in 5 minutes.

We get the Raw intro, complete with theme song.  “Tonight is the night”.

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

Here Comes The Pain!!

Suplex City is in Birmingham, Alabama.  In 3 weeks, we find out who faces HHH at Wrestlemania.

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman.  I am the advocate for the 9th mayor of Suplex City, Brock Lesnar.

We have a lot of business to cover tonight, so let’s get started.

At the Royal Rumble, Bray Wyatt and his disciples took out his client, Brock Lesnar.  But they failed, because when he wants to, Brock will enforce the 11th commandment, thou shall not provoke Brock Lesnar.

That takes us to Fastlane, Stephanie McMahon did what is beast for business.  She made us the main event for Fastlane.  Brother Vs Brother Vs Beast.  Roman Reigns Vs Dean Ambrose, and saving the best for last, Brock Lesnar.

The winner goes on to Wrestlemania to compete for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, against HHH.

Ladies and gentlemen, his client has given Heyman permission to tell us at Fastlane, Brock will enforce Suplex City.  Brock Lesnar will F-5 Roman Reigns.  Then he will F-5 Dean Ambrose, slam them on top of each other, and move on to Wrestlemania to force the “Trophy Husband” HHH to a pin, and he will become the undisputed, reigning, and defending WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.  He is not discounting 2/3 of The Shield.  Roman Reigns has already been there, Dean Ambrose has not.  Dean rode the “short bus” to school, he is a nutjob.

Here comes the “nutjob”.

Ambrose believes this might have been a stupid thing to do, but he’s not stupid.  He’s not crazy, he has a ton of respect for Brock, but he’s not scared of him.

He is here to tell Brock he doesn’t want to fight him, but he will have to, so he can get what he wants, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.  Take Dean to Suplex City, but he will do whatever he can to win the title.  He calls himself the “Ironman” of WWE.  If he has to drag his body to get that title shot against HHH at Wrestlemania, he will do that.  He has enough respect to tell Brock that.

Great promo here, and it sets the tone.

Tonight, Ziggler Vs Owens.  But next, the United States Champion, Kalisto Vs Rusev is next.

Kalisto Vs Rusev is now, with Del Rio joining everyone on commentary.

At Fastlane, Del Rio gets his rematch for the United States Championship.

Kalisto wins the match by countout, Del Rio tried to help Rusev, but Rusev was knocked out after a Hurrancarana.

Tonight, Miz TV with “The Phenomenal One” AJ Styles.

Backstage, Stephanie is gloating about her husband’s Royal Rumble win, in front of Reigns and Ambrose.

Dean and Roman aren’t moved.

Stephanie tells Dean he was willing to do whatever it takes to go on to Wrestlemania.  Ambrose doesn’t want to go to Suplex City.  They are missing the big piece here.  Friends turn on each other all the time.  Marty Jeanetty never saw it coming when Shawn Micahels threw him out the window.  Randy Orton never saw what happened when Evolution kicked him to the curb, and they never saw it coming when Seth Rollins turned on both of them.  Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Tonight, Reigns and Ambrose face New Day in our main event.

Nikki Bella is out with neck surgery, and will be out of action for at least 3 months.

Renee Young is with Brie Bella, she tries to give us an update on Nikki, but Charlotte interrupts.  Charlotte feels like she should apologize.  She might have been responsible, when she beat Nikki at Night of Champions, and beat her again at Hell in a Cell.  But while Charlotte becomes the newest reigning Divas Champion, Nikki will be in bed, doing online shopping.

The Usos are in action, next.

The Usos Vs Social Oucasts.

Heath tells them Social Outcasts are family, because they chose each other.

But where is Bo?

Bo Rida is in the studio mixing some beats.

The Usos win, kicking Rose.

Miz TV with AJ Styles is next.

Miz TV is now.

The WWE Universe has been buzzing about his guest tonight, AJ Styles.  Miz was meditating in his Yoga room, and realized AJ is the very reason why he does Miz TV.  Moments like this where you can tell about one’s story, and AJ’s story is phenomenal.

Ladies and gentlemen, AJ Styles.

The WWE Universe wants to know who AJ Styles is.

AJ can’t answer, cause Miz tells us.  He is the ultimate underdog.  The youngest of 4 children, the runt of the liter.  Even in high school, he tried out for football and they called him too small.  But he was always the last one out of the gym, and made the team, where he stole the show.

From there, he became “The Phenomenal One”.  He went all over the world, competed against the biggest competitors, and through all of that, he became an entrant in the Royal Rumble.  He lasted 28 minutes, and the next night, he defeated Chris Jericho on his first night of Raw.

Where do you go from here?

AJ doesn’t answer, and Miz continues.

AJ reminds Miz of Daniel Bryan, he was the internet darling, but Miz guided him as a rookie, and he sort of started the Yes Movement.  You can call him the “father of the Yes Movement”.

The fans aren’t buying this, and he says Miz wants to guide AJ Styles, and all he has to say is yes.

The fans are chanting no, and Miz tells us who do we think we are.  AJ Styles might have been a big fish in a little pond, but now there are many sharks in this ocean.  This is WWE, where the E means just as much as W.  AJ Styles is nothing, and he can’t do anything here.

AJ has heard enough, pounds on Miz, telling him he’s AJ Styles.

Earlier tonight, Dean Ambrose tells Brock Lesnar he isn’t afraid of Brock, and he will compete at Wrestlemania.

Tonight, Reigns and Ambrose compete against New Day.

Brie Mode!!

Brie Bella Vs Charlotte is now.

Brie Bella picks up the upset win, rolling up Charlotte.

Last Thursday on Smackdown, we had Big Show come out and help Reigns, Ambrose, and Jerocho over The Wyatts.

Next, it will be Big Show Vs Erick Rowan.

Big Show wins in quick fashion, with a Chokeslam.  After the match though, The Wyatts take over, and Big Show is out.

The Wyatts made a statement.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw.  The Wyatts destroying Big Show.

Titus O’ Neil in action, facing Tyler Breeze.

Clash of the Titus, that is all she wrote.  And Tyler’s push is officially over.

HHH comes fact to face with Brock.  He wants to know if he saw right, that “little” Dean Ambrose came up to Brock, and went face to face with him, and did nothing?  Things aren’t as rosy in Suplex City.

Brock tells HHH they will find out at Wrestlemania.  HHH is looking forward to it.

This Thursday on Smackdown, AJ Styles Vs The Miz.

Ziggler Vs Owens is set now.

Ziggler wins with a Zig Zag.  Owens set him up for a Pop-Up Powerbomb, but Ziggy found a way to win.

WWE celebrates Black History Month, honoring Mark Henry.

“The Boss” is back.  No more sitting in the back, and watching other divas wrestle.  No more letting other less talented divas get her spotlight.  She is on her own now, and she makes it clear that while Becky wants her divas title shot, and Brie beat her, she is here to tell Charlotte she is here to take that Divas Title back.

But here comes Tamina and Naomi.  They are here to tell Sasha that every diva needs their chance.  They support Sasha.  But they can be competitors, and still be sisters.

Sasha asks if they support her in her match with Becky Lynch.  Even though they are going their separate directions, they can still have their unity.

Sasha Vs Becky is next.

Becky loses by DQ, because Tamina and Naomi turn on Sasha, after Sasha ordered them to leave.  She didn’t need their help, and I guess they were upset about it.

Reigns and Ambrose Vs New Day, tonight.

Last week, AJ Styles defeated Chris Jericho.  Jericho is standing by with Renee Young.

Jericho is thinking about his match with AJ last week, everything was tremendous, except the ending.  It proved AJ Styles is here to stay, and he is the real deal.  He is a fighter, just like Chris.  He will watch his match with The Miz very seriously this Thursday, and he is anxious to see what happens.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the universe, Goldust is still wanting R-Truth to be his partner.

Moving on.

Our main event, New Day Vs Reigns and Ambrose is now.

New Day still have issues with The Rock, that they would even fight a little kid, wearing a Bullet Club shirt.

I can’t make that up.

But tonight, this is about revenge on The Rock’s cousin, and The Rock’s cousin’s friend.

Because New Day rocks.

The match is on, now.

Reigns and Ambrose wins with a Spear, and Dirty Deeds.

Here comes Brock!!

But New Day take out Reigns and Ambrose, and while Reigns is outside with New Day, here comes Brock with a F-5, to end the show.

Suplex City.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a good show tonight, that sets up Fastlane.  Wrestlemania build won’t happen, until after this show in 3 weeks.  We just have no clue where they are going, except the odds on favorite is Reigns Vs HHH.

I also liked how they are saving Styles Vs Miz for Smackdown.  They are still going to slowly build him, as they should.  I also liked Ziggler Vs Owens.

A much better show than last week, and Brock set the tone tonight.

We are on the road to Fastlane.  What were your thoughts?  Send them here.






























Impact Wrestling 1/26/16…Feast or Fired

Earlier today, Jeff Hardy is entering the building.  He has been trying to get a hold of the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion, his brother Matt Hardy all week.  Tonight, he is going to paint his face, and talk to the new champ.

Last week, Matt Hardy turned his back on the world, as Tyrus helped Hardy become the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Jeff Hardy comes to the ring.

He has a whole week to let this sink in.  When he heard about what happened, he was shocked.  When he saw what happened, he was sick.  He needs some answers from Matt Hardy.  So would the World Champion please grace us his presence, and give us his answers.

New music for “Iconic” Matt Hardy.

Slowly, but surely, Matt Hardy comes out with Reby, Tyrus, and Tyrus carries Max.

Jeff didn’t call the two others, he just wanted to discuss matters with his family.

Reby Sky tells him she is his wife.  Who was there for him when the entire world turned their backs on him.  She was there for him when Jeff decided to play “Redneck” Evil Kineivel.

He doesn’t need Jeff anymore, they don’t need anybody anymore.

Jeff calls Reby his bitch-in-law.  Matt tells him not to talk to his wife like that.  Jeff calls Matt a bitch too, and we have bitch 3 in Tyrus.  So why Matt why?

Matt is no longer in Jeff’s shadow, his wife told him to stop giving, and just take.

Why can’t Jeff just be happy for him, he is now the “other” Hardy.

Jeff can’t be happy for Matt with the way he did it.  So Matt tells Jeff they need to go their separate ways.  So Jeff can stay with his underlings called “creatures”.  While Matt can just go on to become the greatest TNA World Champion of all time.

The crowd chants for EC3, and Jeff agrees with this.  Because the last time EC3 won the title, he did it fair and square, and showed he is the best wrestler.

So how about since Jeff is clear, they face each other for the TNA World Title, tonight.

You want this?  Matt loves Jeff, but he wipes his hands clear over what happens tonight.

So Hardy Vs Hardy tonight.

Josh Matthews and The Pope welcome us to the show.  Feast or Fired tonight, title matches are on the line, along with one pink slip.

Video of Feast or Fired is shown now.

I hope Grado is fired.

That match is taking place now.

The X-Division Title match is not in a briefcase.  Instead, it’s King of the Mountain Title opportunity.

Grado, Eli Drake, Drew Galloway, and James Storm all grab the briefcases.  We will find out what everyone chose, later tonight.

Kurt checks on Jeff.  The way Matt won the title last week just wasn’t right.  Kurt has Jeff’s back.

Tonight, Matt Hardy Vs Jeff Hardy.  Also all 4 briefcases are revealed.  One man will be fired, tonight.

All four men are standing by with their briefcases.

DJ Z Vs Tigre Uno Vs Mark Andrews for the X-Division Title.

Tigre wins the match, with a 450 splash, pinning Andrews.

Now comes Gregory “Sugar” Helms.

He said this company for years, was defined by the X-Division.  This company was backed by the X-Division.

Helms knows Tigre just had a match, and he doesn’t want any excuses.  So he will give him one week.  So next week, is Tigre Uno prepared to defend the X-Division Title, one more time?


Tigre Uno, his run as X-Division Champion is over.

Awesome Kong tells The Dollhouse she isn’t mad at them, these walls are strong.  She will get the Knockout Title, but tonight is about The Beautiful People.  She needs to face Velvet Sky all by herself.  They can stay in the back, and see the teacher take the student to school.

Kong Vs Velvet, next.

Backstage, Eli Drake is a bit nervous.  Jessie Godderz is assuring him everything is okay.

Jessie suggests he check the briefcase before they reveal the results.

Tonight, brother Vs brother.  Matt Hardy Vs Jeff Hardy.

Kurt Angle approaches Matt, and he tells him Matt is tarnishing his family name.  Matt tells him Jeff is his brother, always will be.  But he is building his brand.

Kurt claims to be the first TNA World Champion, and he is tarnishing that title.  Matt warns Kurt, he respects him, but if he gets in his business, his bones will be broken.

Kong Vs Velvet is now.

Kong wins clean with the Implant Buster.

Kong tries to go after Velvet, but Madison comes out to help her bestie.  But here comes The Dollhouse to counter.

Kong hits a splash on Velvet, with Madison watching on.

The Wolves are backstage, saying they are the greatest Tag Team Champions of all-time, but right now, their tag titles are missing.

Crazzy Steve clearly wanted to send a message, but they asked for a match, and that match is next.

Let the hunt begin.

JB is with all four men, set for Feast or Fired.

JB is going through the rules, and here comes “The Miracle” Mike Bennett.

One of these four guys need a miracle.  But when you are “The Miracle”, you don’t need to put yourself in this situation.  Mike is just going to sit back, and watch.

Drew Galloway is offended by this, saying Mike hasn’t proven anything, and it shows he isn’t the brain behind this.

Mike says next time he bashes his wife, Drew will need a lot of luck.

Eli Drake opens his briefcase first, he gets a King of the Mountain Title shot.

More reveals is coming up, but first, The Wolves Vs Crazzy Steve and his partner.

We someone completely dressed in clown makeup, introducing Steve, and his partner….Abyss.

The Wolves win by DQ when that crazy woman came out with Tag Team Titles, and sprayed purple mist into Davey’s eyes.  Abyss hits a Black Hole Slam on Eddie.  They celebrate, holding up the Tag Team Titles.

We get more briefcase reveals, next.

And now we are down to three.

“Cowboy” James Storm now must reveal his briefcase.  

Storm reveals he gets Tag Team Title shots.

It’s now down to Grado and Drew Galloway.

Drew Galloway gets a World Title shot, and Grado is fired.

Hardy Vs Hardy is now.  EC3 will be here next week.

The match ends in a no contest when Eric Young comes out, angry that Jeff Hardy is the number one contender.  He is the King of the Mountain Champion, that is the real number one contender.

Bram comes out, and he lays out Jeff, with Matt watching on, doing nothing.

Beer Money counters EY and Bram.  But here comes Crazzy Steve and Abyss.

Kurt tries to confront Matt, but Tyrus lays him out.  And when the Hardy group leaves, EY and Bram give Jeff a Piledriver through the table, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Not a strong show tonight, except the big ending.  I do like Grado was fired, because in my opinion, he didn’t offer much.

This certainly keeps Eric Young strong, and a threat to any title.  With TNA heading to the UK this week, they had to take Jeff off of TV.  I am interested in seeing what EC3 has to say next week.  He was getting chants today, so he clearly is over as a face.  

Where do we go from here?

Send me your thoughts on the show here.































WWE Monday Night Raw 1/25/16…Road To Wrestlemania Begins

Tonight, after a successful Royal Rumble, where HHH became a 14-time WWE World Champion, how will The Road To Wrestlemania begin?

Expect some big surprises tonight.

Raw is now.

We are live in Miami, Florida.  We hear from Mr. McMahon and Stephanie first.  A big surprise there.

They are here to gloat about what happened last night.  They are feeling good.  Roman Reigns is broken, they broke him in half.  We yanked his title away from him, and now, just like the rest of us.  When we have adversity in our lives, we tuck between our tails and whimper away.  Once you are broken, you stay that way.

Vince has a confession for us.  He admits he enjoys the misfortune in others.  We are broken and miserable.  But nobody is more miserable than Roman Reigns.

Stephanie tells us that if you want something done, then you do it yourself.  They pulled off the biggest coup, and we all thought maybe Reigns would pull it off.  Or possibly Brock Lesnar.  Or even AJ Styles.  But “The Game” had number 30, and they knew it all along.

Nobody holds a candle to HHH.  HHH is a businessman, he has a genius IQ.  He is “The Cerebral Assassin”, he is her man, he is “The Game”.  Ladies and gentlemen, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, HHH.

HHH is wearing a suit, and he has the gold.

HHH is giving props to Roman Reigns.  He could be one of the best going, he could be.  But today, he is not.  Roman Reigns lacks one thing, and that is lack of respect.  He is cocky, and he needs to learn his place.  He can put up with his attitude, but he can’t put up with his disrespect for this man, Vince McMahon.  And this whole thing is HHH’s church, this whole thing Vince built is his religion, and into his dying breath, he will make sure Roman knows his place.

So the question is HHH why is he WWE World Champion?  His time is up, he is a successful businessman, and they are right.  But HHH wants to be WWE World Champion, because guys like Reigns wants to be WWE World Champion.  And until there is respect from guys in the back, he will remain WWE World Champion.

The fans are chanting, and this is the reason why guys like Reigns has a lack of respect.

But who will face HHH at Wrestlemania?  They will do their research, and at the end of the night, we find out who will main event at Fastlane, and the winner of that match will get the opportunity to face HHH at Wrestlemania.

Believe that.

Tonight, a major star makes his return on the road to Wrestlemania.

Tonight, Jericho Vs AJ Styles.

Our first match is Dolph Ziggler Vs Kevin Owens.

Owens wins the match with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.  Did Owens do enough to get himself into Fastlane?

Roman Reigns is walking backstage, Jo-Jo wants to get Reigns’ reaction to what Vince said about Roman being a broken man.  He wants Jo-Jo to let The Chairman and HHH know he is here, and he isn’t leaving until he finds out what the main event of Fastlane is.

The Social Outcasts are in the ring, and they have something to say.  But they see Flo Rida in the house.  Heath and Flo have some history from a few years ago.  Heath tells him to just sit there, and don’t make Heath mad.

They challenge Flo to come to the ring, and face The Four Superfriends.

Slater challenges Flo to a rap battle.  Flo Rida, meet Bo Rida.

We have some good skills from Bo.  Okay, not really, but he’s trying.

This all leads to The Dudley Boyz coming to face The Social Outcasts, next.

Flo Rida got into it with Heath Slater, and Bubba picks up the win with a 3-D, pinning Curtis.

Renee Young is with AJ Styles.

Chris Jericho crosses paths with him.  He knows who AJ is, and he is finally where he belongs.  He has a chance to prove he belongs.  He gets in the ring with a 6-time World Champion.  Welcome to the big leagues, kid.

Styles Vs Jericho, next.

Styles picks up the victory with a rollup.  A very good, and fun match here.  For the first time ever, AJ Styles Vs Chris Jericho.  I never thought I would write that up.

AJ sticks out his hand, and Chris reluctantly accepts it.

Our next match is Sasha Banks Vs Becky Lynch.

The match ends in a no contest, because Charlotte attacks both Sasha and Becky.

Goldust is looking for R-Truth.  He is in search of a new tag partner.  He wants to know if Truth is interested.  Truth is married, so he doesn’t swing that way.

Goldust is just looking for a tag team partner.

Next, we will see Kane Vs Bray Wyatt.

This Thursday on Smackdown, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns will take part in Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel.

But now, Wyatt Vs Kane.

Bray Wyatt hits Sister Abigail, and he wins the match.

Strowman takes care of Kane.  Rowan and Harper finish him off.

A big limo is backstage.  Who is the major star returning to Raw?

Wrestlemania is 69 days away.

Rich Brennan is trying to find out who is in the limo.

It’s The Miz.

The Miz tries to say something, but a truck interrupts him.  It’s The Rock.

He runs into everyone backstage, including The Big Show.

Big Show could have been The Scorpion King.  He could have chased after Vin Diesel in Fast and Furious.  He could have chased earthquakes if he had been awarded the Royal Rumble win back in 2000.

Rock runs into Lana.  I guess Lana shows up in Rock’s hotel room after Raw.  Rusev is right behind Rock.

Alright Miami, now The Rock is coming.

The Rock woke up at 3:45 in the morning, clanging and banging.  He worked 14 hours on the set of “Ballers”, and they asked The Rock what is he going to do, only one place Rock can go, and that is American Airlines Arena.  Now The Rock can finally say….FINALLY…..THE ROCK HAS COME BACK…..


This awesome chants is taking place.

Miami, hometown.  Are you ready for Wrestlemania?

The Rock is ready for Wrestlemania, the entire roster is ready for Wrestlemania.  The Rock is ready for Wrestlemania.  The camera crew is ready.  Michael Cole is ready.  JBL is ready.  That other black guy is ready, I don’t know his name….

Well, this is a time we go off the script.

He sees guys dressed like The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, Macho Man, and The Rock.

It’s good that Rock got those guys on TV.

The Rock is ready for Wrestlemania, but we are talking about tonight.  It’s The People’s Champ.  The jabroni beating, pie eating, trail blazing, eyebrow raising, this is Miami, so say hello to my little friend.  

Oh glorious, now it’s New Day!!

Xavier Woods tells us that black guy he doesn’t know is Byron Saxton, and he is the best commentator WWE has.

So, as Kofi said, let’s talk about black people he knows.  The New Day whooped The Lucha Dragons.  They whooped The Dudley Boyz.  They whooped Rock’s cousins, The Usos last night.

The Rock calls himself “The People’s Champ”, but where is his gold?  You know who does have gold?  The New Day.

They are our WWE Tag Team Champions.

The Rock is just like Lebron James, who went from Miami and went back to Cleveland.  In other words, The Rock went from this dumpster to Hollywood.  Rock took his money, and ran.

New Day Rocks!!

The Rock knows exactly who they are.  They are the WWE Tag Team Champions.  They are entertaining.  Yet, they wear llama penises on their head.


They are unicorn horns.

Rock said they are Chocolate Horns.  “Big Momma” looks upset, the thing is he is so huge, he looks like The Incredible Hulk made out with Urkel.

So how about The People’s Champ kicks all 3 of their asses.

Miami, you want them to get real?  They don’t deserve it.  So goodbye.

The Rock tells them he understands plan A didn’t work, so we have plan B.

Plan B?  Family.

Here come The Usos, and they clean house.  They take them all to The Rock.

Samoan Drop, Rock Bottom, and Xavier gets The People’s Elbow.

We are 69 days away from Wrestlemania.

Our main event is Reigns and Ambrose Vs Sheamus and Rusev.

Paige and Natalya Vs Brie Bella and Alicia Fox.

Paige and Nattie win the match when Paige pins Brie with a RamPaige.

Footage from earlier today, in Miami.  Be A Star campaign.

The Miz is sick and tired of being interrupted.  Whether it’s on Raw, or through Miz TV, he’s tired of it…..

Kalisto comes out, and our match is set now.

Kalisto wins with the Salida del sol.

Reigns and Ambrose Vs Sheamus and Rusev is next.

Reigns and Ambrose win when Reigns hits a spear on Sheamus.

Who will The Authority choose for our main event at Fastlane?

Now the announce table comes breaking down for League of Nations.

Bam!!  Rusev through an announce table.

Stephanie comes out to make the big announcement.

Our main event will be a Triple Threat match between Dean Ambrose Vs Roman Reigns Vs Brock Lesnar.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I actually thought we would see a Fatal 4-way, with Kevin Owens added, but I got 3 of the 4 correct.  Why would The Authority choose Roman Reigns though if they are trying to screw him out of the title?

Anyway, up and down show for me.  Certainly, we had Jericho Vs Styles, which was special.  We also had The Rock make an appearance, but everything else was just there.  It just didn’t feel like a special show, like most night after Rumble matches.  So, we will see what happens after Fastlane, which is when the real road to Wrestlemania begins.

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















































WWE Royal Rumble 1/24/16

Tonight, it’s One Vs All, when Roman Reigns enters the Royal Rumble, defending his WWE World Heavyweight Title as the number one entrant in this year’s Royal Rumble.

Our Kick-Off match is a Fatal 4-way tag match, with Royal Rumble spots on the line.  Damien Sandow and Darren Young Vs The Ascension Vs Mark Henry and Jack Swagger Vs The Dudley Boyz.

Royal Rumble:  It’s all about the stats.

Can Roman Reigns survive, and keep his title, when he is entrant number one?

Royal Rumble flashback, from 2011 when Alberto Del Rio won the biggest Rumble, with 40 men.

Now from 2012, when Sheamus won the Rumble match.

League of Nations are discussing matters tonight.  Del Rio Vs Kalisto for the US Title is tonight.  I actually forgot about that.

In the Rumble match, every man for themselves, but any one of them will win the title, and win the Rumble.

They are all on the same page.

Coming up after Royal Rumble, WWE 24/7 with Wrestlemania 31.

Royal Rumble Rewind, from 1995 when Shawn Michaels won.

Royal Rumble 1999, when Mr. McMahon won the Rumble.

IC Title match, with a Last Man Standing match.  Kevin Owens Vs Dean Ambrose.

This is the match I want to see tonight.

Jo-Jo is with Kevin Owens.

Owens plan for beating Ambrose in a brutal Last Man Standing match, and entering the Royal Rumble match, and take both titles?  Because he is Kevin Owens.

He gets a chance to win his Intercontinental Title back.  This is his first Royal Rumble match.  What did he do in his first WWE match?  He beat John Cena.

Royal Rumble 2003, when Brock Lesnar won the Rumble match.

Now, from Rumble 2000 when The Rock won.

JBL, Michael Cole, and Byron Saxton are joining us now.  Fatal 4-way tag match.  2 Rumble spots are on the line.

The Dudleys Vs The Ascension Vs Henry and Swagger Vs Young and Sandow.

Mark Henry and Jack Swagger win the match, when Henry gives Viktor a World’s Strongest Slam, and those two advance to Royal Rumble match.

Social Outcasts are a part of the Social Media Lounge.  They all kick Rich out.

They are all leaders, they are outcasts from the locker room, and Axeman is NOT tired after being in the Rumble for the entire year.

Great questions.

Clips from Rumble 2014, when Batista won.  And from Rumble 2015, when Reigns won.

Charlotte Vs Becky Lynch match is being discussed.

We kick Royal Rumble with The McMahons, who enter through a limo.  Jo-Jo catches up with them.

Roman Reigns has an opportunity to make history, and all he has to do is go through 29 other men for his chance to main event Wrestlemania.

Royal Rumble is now.

Wow, they are kicking things off with Last Man Standing match.  Ambrose Vs Owens for the IC Title.

Dean Ambrose wins the match, when he threw Owens over the top rope, and flew onto 2 tables.  We started the match with Dean flinging Owens over the announce table, and right on to Michael Cole.  So you knew this would be a great match, and it was.

These two just work so well together, and can easily carry the WWE banner soon.

WWE Tag Title match is up next.  The New Day Vs The Usos.

New Day has been in deep mourning ever since we have seen the death of Francesca the Trombone.

So take a moment, and bow your horns.  While we have a moment of silence for Francesca.

There is a new trombone.

And we have the newest member of New Day.  Francesca II.

But Kofi wants to know what about Francesca I?  A brother has needs, says Xavier.

So now, they will keep the WWE Tag Titles, and move on to Royal Rumble and become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

It all means more gold, even gold unicorns.

New Day Rocks!!

Tag Title match is now.

New Day retains their titles with a Big Ending after Big E. catches Jey.

Francesca II was the key.

We see what took place at the end of Raw this past Monday night.  The Wyatts had the final say.

We hear from the Wyatts.

They are death, they have slaughtered the chosen one.  And tonight, they slaughter them all, one by one.  And after tonight, Bray truly will have the world in their hands.

The Apocalypse is here.


The next match is for the United States Title.  Alberto Del Rio Vs Kalisto.

Kalisto wins the match, and United States Title again.  In a span of 3 weeks, the US Title changed hands 3 times.

The Royal Rumble Kick-Off panel review what we just saw, and are about to see.

Jack Swagger and Mark Henry advance to the Royal Rumble match itself.  After Henry and Swagger took out Bubba Ray, and pinned Viktor.

Stephanie McMahon is interrupted by Paul Heyman.

The biggest Wrestlemania in history is 10 weeks away, so the McMahons should be happy.  They will have a new, reigning, undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion of the world, Brock Lesnar.

Heyman is here to re-negotiate Brock Lesnar’s contract after he takes out Roman Reigns, and the entire Wyatt Family.

Stephanie makes it crystal clear, as long as his client takes out Roman Reigns, she will re-negotiate his client’s contract.

Heyman says consider it done.

WWE Fastlane is coming on February 21st.

Charlotte Vs Becky Lynch, for the Divas Title is now.

Flair throws his coat at Becky when she had a DisarmHER on Charlotte, distracting Becky.  Charlotte nails a spear to pin Becky.

“The Boss” Sasha Banks is in the house, comes out after Charlotte attacks Becky.

Sasha kicks Becky and tells her this is Sasha’s spotlight.

Sasha makes it clear she wants Charlotte’s Diva Title, but they shake hands.  Flair gives Sasha a WOOOOOOO

But now Sasha hits a Bank Statement on Charlotte.

Sasha holds the Divas Title.

Wrestlemania 32 is 70 days away.

Reigns eliminates Sheamus, and HHH eliminates Reigns.

The final two are Ambrose and HHH.

HHH eliminates Ambrose to win the Rumble, and win the WWE World Title for the 14th time.

Good god, we will hear Stephanie gloat now.

Vince is out here proud of his son-in-law.

The Road to Wrestlemania has begun now, as the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

For one split second, I thought Ambrose would win.  Silly me.  But honestly, this was a good show tonight.  From top to bottom, and this is how we get The Rock involved at Mania, right?

Plus, we get Lesnar Vs Wyatt, probably Jericho Vs Ambrose.

And to see AJ Styles in a WWE ring is surreal.  I can’t wait to see what he does.  What are your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me, as I will talk to you tomorrow night.













































































Impact Wrestling 1/19/16…Last Man Standing

Tonight, Matt Hardy Vs EC3 for the TNA World Title, for the last time.  We see the champion enter the building, followed by the champion.

Impact Wrestling is now.

We kick the show off with Jeff Hardy.

Last week, his brother made a deal with EC3 that he couldn’t refuse.  But something doesn’t feel right, so he asks for his brother to come to the ring, and here comes Matt.

They have made a living becoming risk takers.  They started their careers with ladders.  They call him an artist, but Matt is the wrestler.  And he has learned so much from Matt.  Tonight just feels a little too risky, but that can be good.  But he has a weird vibe about tonight’s main event.

Matt feels like he let Jeff down, and he feels he let The Impact Wrestling fans down.  He feels like he let his wife, and son down.  But tonight, he feels is the night to gamble.  But he respects him for voicing his opinion, because he has never beaten EC3.  But tonight, that changes.

The thing about EC3 is he leads by his ego, and that is why Matt put everything on the line.  This feels like a game of chess, and he plans on putting EC3 at checkmate.

Matt will make Jeff proud, he will make the fans proud, he will make his family proud.  He feels like he will show the world that Matt Hardy is the premiere wrestler.

That’s good for Jeff, if Matt feels it, then so does Jeff.  And at the end of the night, the fans will be chanting Hardy.

Here comes Tyrus.

Tyrus says the Hardys talk about dreams, they have received things they don’t deserve.  But funny thing about dreams is one wrong move, it can turn into a nightmare.

Matt has EC3, he will take care of him.  But Jeff made the biggest mistake.

Jeff made this personal, and he doesn’t know what Tyrus can do when things are personal.  Jeff made fun of Tyrus, said he can’t read, and is stupid.  Tyrus is calling out Hardy.

Jeff said let’s do this now, so it’s Tyrus Vs Jeff.

Tyrus is DQ’d when he shoved the referee.  Jeff slipped on the ropes, so the monster went after Jeff’s knees.

But Jeff hit a Twist of Fate out of nowhere.

Next week, it’s Feast or Fired.

The Wolves have a tag title shot tonight, but for 2 years, they have faced the best teams, and beaten them all.  But now we have the returning Beer Money.  He says they do the dance.

The new and improved Crazzy Steve come in, and some guy knock them out.

Awesome Kong Vs Gail Kim, for the Knockout Title is now.

The Beautiful People came out to counter The Dollhouse, and Gail retains the title with a rollover.

Beer Money are ready for a fight, next.

Storm tells us it’s been 5 years since Beer Money teamed together on Impact.  And tonight, it’s going down.

Roode asks us if we’re ready to see them kick some ass.  They want Eric Young and Bram now.

But we get Eli Drake and Jessie Godderz.

Eli tells us it’s not 2006, it’s time for Eli Drake.

Drake and Godderz challenge Beer Money instead.

Beer Money wins with a DUI.  Good to see Beer Money back.

Tonight, EC3 Vs Matt Hardy in a Last Man Standing match, we see the two warm up.

But next, Kurt Angle has an announcement for his Kurt Angle Farewell Tour.

Earlier tonight, Jeff Hardy re-injured his leg.  How will this affect the mind-set of Matt Hardy?

Matt checks on Jeff.  The knee is swollen, and Jeff won’t leave.  But Matt wants him to check in the hospital.  Remy assures Jeff he has to go to the hospital.

So he does, and here comes Kurt Angle.

Video of last week’s great match between Kurt and Drew Galloway.

Kurt appreciates the crowds, and he says every time he walks out here, it feels like the first time.  He has walked this ramp for 20 years.  And with this reception, it makes the bumps and bruises worth it.

Kurt appreciates Drew Galloway’s match last week.  These are the kind of matches he wants to have for his farewell tour.  But the question is who’s next.

Lashley comes out.

Bobby has more respect for Kurt than anyone else in the business.  14 years ago, Kurt came to recruit Lashley to be a professional wrestler.  He signed, and Kurt made that happen.

At that very same time, Kurt said these two will have a wrestling match, but Bobby waited and waited.  The saying goes in order to be the man, you have to beat the man.

Kurt Angle is the man.

A year ago, the two had a match, the single greatest time in Lashley’s wrestling career.  And at the same time, it was the worst time of his career, because he lost the match, and the title.

Lashley isn’t the same man since that loss.  There is only one solution, give Bobby one more match.

Kurt calls Bobby the most dominant wrestler he ever faced.  He doesn’t even know if he can beat him again, but if he wants to beat the greatest wrestler alive, then it’s going to be real….damn real.

Lashley tells Kurt he is going to beat his ass.

Oh boy, I want to see that match.

Still to come, EC3 Vs Matt Hardy, in a Last Man Standing match for the World Title.

But next, the in-ring debut of “The Miracle” Mike Bennett.

During the break, we hear from Lashley, he is ready for Kurt’s match.  The newest Knockout Racquel shows up, tells Bobby his pain is her pleasure.  And Bobby is interested.

Maria Kanellis tells us she believes in “The Miracle”.

Bennett will face Pepper Parks.

Bennett wins the match with a TKO.

Mike tells us what we just witnessed was a real life miracle.  It’s okay if we need a miracle, because he sure needed one.  What Mike is doing is building a kingdom of miracles.  And everyone can scream out yes we do.

Next week, Feast or Fired.  10 men will be involved.

EC3 with some thoughts.  What Matt is doing is noble, but he can’t beat him.  Matt has his family, Ethan has his family, his gold.

Matt tells us he can’t die, well neither can EC3.  There isn’t an ounce of blood he won’t spill, with this title, it means everything.  Matt wants to go home?  He will go home in an ambulance.  Hell hath no fury.

World Title match, Last Man Standing is now.

Tyrus came out during the match, and turned on EC3.  He laid him out, and EC3 was hit with the belt, by Hardy for the final count.

Now, Hardy, Tyrus, and Remy stand tall in the ring.  Matt beat the unbeatable EC3 for himself.  He ended the streak for himself.  And he won the TNA World Heavyweight Title for him.

When he came back to Impact Wrestling, he came with the best intentions, to help.  But now, he is out for himself, because we are all knatts.  He is a self-made multi-millionaire that we all dream about.  He has a beautiful wife, a beautiful house.  His wife told him two weeks ago it was time for him to start taking, and stop giving.  She is the only thing that matters in his life, as long as he is the World Heavyweight Champion.

He offered Tyrus more than EC3 had to offer, and we are in the Era of Big-Money Matt.  The iconic Matt Hardy.

He gives EC3 a concerto, laying him out.  Remy spits on EC3.

The show ends with the new champion and entourage standing tall.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

What a fantastic show, top to bottom, including the main event.  It’s clear to me EC3 is going to turn babyface, which brings me to ask what does Jeff Hardy think about this?

I see a ton of potential in Mike Bennett, this is his time to shine.  And always good to see Beer Money.

That Lashley promo was intense too.  He’s certainly a quiet guy, but one thing for sure, Bobby Lashley can go in the ring.

Not a fan of the Feast or Fired concept, but it is the next week.  I hope we find out who gets the briefcases next week too.

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































WWE Monday Night Raw 1/18/16…Raw Is Jericho

On Martin Luther King Jr Day, we get the video from the legend himself.  The dream will live on.

Very sad news about the passing of “Iron” Mike Sharpe, one of my favorite preliminary wrestlers, from the 70s and 80s.  Also Glenn Frey, of the Eagles passed away to yesterday.

We are live in Columbus, Ohio.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.  As the theme says, tonight is the night.

Tonight, Chris Jericho gives us The Highlight Reel, with his guest being Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman.

The WWE World Champion, Roman Reigns comes out to the ring.

This Sunday, it will literally be 1 Vs All, because he will be the first man to put his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against 29 other men.

But that is this Sunday, he is only thinking about one man tonight.  Brock Lesnar, and he’s looking to finish what Brock started last week right now.

Enter Chris Jericho.

Roman doesn’t have Brock, he has Y2J, and he’s the Ayatollah of Rock N Rolla.

Roman wants Brock, so Chris has a proposition.  Brock will be a guest on The Highlight Reel, so he is thinking of having the three top contenders on the same segment.  Reigns, Brock, and Jericho.

The League of Nations come out.  Sheamus wants to know when did Royal Rumble become Reigns Vs Lesnar?  Because they are facing 28 other superstars, including The League of Nations, who plan on taking back what is rightfully theirs, The WWE World Heavyweight Title.

Sheamus brings up Chris not inviting League of Nations to the Highlight Reel, that is just stupid.

Chris suggests he has Sheamus’ mohawk on the show, so he can find out why it makes Sheamus look so stupid.

Del Rio reminds us he won the largest Royal Rumble match, and we’d like to forget about that.

Rusev tells us everything is a rumble in Bulgaria.

One of them will win the Rumble, and they should be in his show tonight.

Chris asks Roman who won the Royal Rumble match last year?

Reigns did.

And who did Roman throw out to win the match?


So in respect to Lana, when things matter the most, it seems Rusev comes up a little short.

Reigns proposes he faces Rusev, right now.

Jericho agrees to the match, and he makes himself the special guest ref.

That match is up, now.

League Of Nations used their numbers, and Jericho threw them out of ringside.  So Reigns hits the Superman Punch, and a spear for the win.

Tonight, Reigns goes face to face with The Beast in The Highlight Reel.

We come back, and Stephanie realized Jericho made a match.  She threatens to never do that, again.

Our ritual “Total Divas” is coming back, Natalya Vs Brie Bella.

Paige and Nattie are best friends, again.

In record-breaking time, Nattie makes Brie tap out to the Sharpshooter.

Moving on, 6-man tag match.  The Wyatts Vs The Dudley Boyz and Ryback.

We find out who drew number one in the Rumble match, tonight.

The Wyatts pick up the win, when Luke gets Bubba on his Lariant.

Bray reminds us that it’s all about the numbers this Sunday, and they will rule everything.

Follow the buzzards.

We will find out who is the number one entrant of The Royal Rumble.

Big Show is going one on one with Heath Slater.

Big Show knocked out all of the Social Outcasts, and Big Show is a babyface, again.

Stephanie is trying to rally The League of Nations, for some reason.

League of Nations assure Stephanie they aren’t scared of anybody, and Stephanie dares them to prove it.

Vince and Stephanie are now on the ramp, about to choose the person who will be the first entrant of the Royal Rumble.

Vince tells us the odds of Roman winning the Rumble is the same as one of us winning the Powerball.

So you say we still have a chance, Vince?

The first entrant of the Royal Rumble match is?

Roman Reigns.

They are going to try this again?  God, this is awful.


Roman Reigns.

But wait, let’s do this again.  Because nothing says riveting TV like picking the number one entrant.


Roman Reigns.

Wait a second, his name was there twice?

Vince tells us he’s the first entrant, and that means he won’t be there at the end.  You can believe that.

Charlotte joins us for commentary for the next match.

Becky Lynch Vs Tamina.


Charlotte was scouting the match, along with her father, Ric Flair.  Becky wins the match, making Tamina tap out to the Disarmer.

Becky wants a title match for the Divas Title.

Charlotte tells Becky she lost the title match, and doesn’t deserve one.  Becky talks some trash to Ric, saying a champion like Flair would never deny a title shot to someone.  Maybe he is more of a coward at his old age.

Ric tells her if she wants a title shot against the greatest of all-time, she has it.


Title match is on this Sunday.

Next, it’s Ambrose and Kalisto Vs Sheamus and Del Rio.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, Miz TV, with Ambrose and Owens.

Also this Thursday, Reigns vs the entire League of Nations.

Kevin Owens joins the crew at commentary.

Sheamus wins with his team, pinning Kalisto with a Brogue Kick.

Earlier tonight, Reigns called out Brock Lesnar, Chris Jericho came out to invite Reigns to The Highlight Reel, with Brock.

That happens, later tonight.

We see clips from last week on Raw, when The Usos pin The New Day, with some help from Chris Jericho.

Earlier today, we had the funeral of the trombone.  Her name was Francesca.  Who knew?

Big E. is giving us the eulogy.

Tonight, Big E. will get some revenge on Jey Uso, in honor of Francesca.

Royal Rumble video, it’s all about the numbers is playing now.

Jey Uso Vs Big E, now.

Big E. gets the revenge for Francesca.  He pins Jey with a Big Ending.

8-man tag action is next.

Henry, Titus, Truth, and Neville Vs Stardust, The Ascension, and Breeze.

Neville hits Red Arrow for the pin fall victory for his team.

Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel, with Reigns and Lesnar in the ring, at the same time is next.

Reigns Vs League of Nations this Thursday night, but Chris Jericho is here.

For the first time, the top 3 contenders will be in the ring.  The reigning, and defending WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns.  We have a 6-time World Champion in Chris Jericho, and we have “The Beast”.

Paul Heyman interrupts him, but Chris wants Brock in the ring.

Heyman assures Chris there will be a F-5 in line for Columbus, Ohio.  Now the last time Chris and Brock locked horns, it would not have been a Jericho highlight.  But rather a Brock Lesnar highlight.

However, his client’s focus will not be on Chris, it will be on the reigning, defending WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns.

Jericho tells Paul he didn’t get to talk his way out of his client competing out of The Royal Rumble.

Brock Lesnar is one of the most dominant performers in WWE history, but Brock has enemies, in all 29 men.  So the question is did he try to get Brock out of the Rumble, because he knew he didn’t stand a good chance at winning?

Heyman sees it like this, his client was never pinned out of the title, so he thought he should get a bye into Wrestlemania.  But the fact is we have 29 other competitors vying for their chance to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.  But there is one conqueror, one BEAST, one Brock Lesnar.  But he loves the box office appeal.

If he told us we’d get to see Lesnar Vs Alberto Del Rio, we’d get the network.  Lesnar Vs Sheamus.  Lesnar Vs Reigns.  We’d see Brock vs any surprise entrant, he will throw men over the top rope, and become the undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Championship.  Because he guarantees that this Sunday at Royal Rumble, Brock will turn 29 men into Suplex City.

So Chris has a question, what if it truly is Chris Jericho Vs Brock Lesnar as the final 2 participants?  What if Chris Jericho throws Brock Lesnar over the top rope, and become the 7-time WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and goes on to Wrestlemania?

Well, here comes the pain!!

And here comes Reigns, before Brock can go to the ring.  He wants himself some of Brock.

We get a big fight here, with Reigns hitting 2 Spears on Lesnar.  League of Nations come in, but Brock takes care of them.  But now come The Wyatts.  They take care of both Reigns and Brock, and the show ends with The Wyatts standing tall.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The show was what it was, more or less.  Centered around the Royal Rumble match itself.  But I loved how they kept The Wyatts here strong, and they truly have built them up, to the point where I can honestly see Bray Wyatt winning this Sunday, and being the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

I truly want to see Ambrose Vs Owens too in a Last Man Standing match.  I also expect to see Becky Lynch Vs Charlotte being a good match, and we can’t forget about The New Day Vs The Usos.

But with Reigns being selected number one, I can’t see him winning it all.  We will see some surprises this week, but I can’t think we have many favorites.

Win or lose, that was Raw tonight.  What was your thoughts on the show, and who do you pick to win the Rumble?  Send me your thoughts.








































Impact Wrestling 1/12/16…Kurt Angle’s Farewell Tour Continues

Tonight, we hear from the new TNA World Champion, EC3.  We will also see Kurt Angle Vs Drew Galloway, in Kurt Angle’s Farewell Tour.

Impact Wrestling is now.

EC3 is staring at himself in the mirror, with the TNA World Title.  Tyrus tells him it’s time, and EC3 heads out of the room.

Josh Matthews and The Pope welcome us to Bethleham, Pennsylvania.  We hear from James Storm and Bobby Roode, who throw a beer bash.

Ladies and gentlemen….EC3!!

Trouble!!  Trouble!!  Trouble!!

This is not a time for celebration, this is a time for vindication.  Once again, EC3 is our unbeatable, unbreakable, undefeated, undisputable 2-time World Heavyweight Champion, EC3.

There is one person who has stood by his side, and that is Tyrus.  What they do is business, but they have a friendship, and he will grant Tyrus a World Title shot any time.

Tyrus told him he never left him, he always believed in him.  EC3 cuts him off, and says now this is business.

He gets cut off by Jeff Hardy.

Jeff can’t stand to hear EC3 speak, but he is here to give Ethan something he deserves.

He used to think he was a spoiled brat, and needed help from everyone.  But last week, he won the championship by himself, and is the best wrestler on the earth.

Did EC3’s ears decieve him?  Did Jeff just pay homage to EC3?

EC3 did what he did to Jeff, making him wear his suit, and to Matt.

EC3 tells us Matt is going to the back of the line, this is about Jeff.  Hardy gives EC3 a note from his doctor, saying he is cleared to wrestle.

So Jeff’s first match has to be against the champ, right?  So Jeff challenges Ethan to a match tonight, for the title.  What do you say?

You know how bad EC3 wanted this?  Jeff’s request for a title match?  It has been denied.  But Jeff can’t just get a title match, in his first match.  He has to start at the bottom, and EC3 has a suggestion.

How about an open challenge, and here comes a guy in a mask and a cape.  But he needs entrance music, and EC3 sings us his music.  It’s just a guy with a beard.

His name is Shynron.  He is going to beat Jeff Hardy.  He is going to destroy Jeff Hardy.

Hardy wins with a Twist of Fate.  EC3 was impressed.  Tonight, Kurt Angle Vs Drew Galloway.  Also tonight, Mr. Anderson’s new talk show, called Open Mic with his guest being Matt Hardy.

Next, it’s The Beautiful People Vs The Dollhouse.

JB is with The Dollhouse, including The Awesome Kong.

Marti said everything goes through her, and Kong tells us she is going after the Knockout Title.

Velvet and Madison interrupt them, saying they have to deal through them, tonight.

We get a fight as we go to a break.

Jade and Kong win the match, over Madison and Velvet in what was a streetfight.  Jade pins Madison with the Cradle Piledriver.

Kurt Angle All Access tonight, seeing Dixie and Kurt share a moment.

Tonight, Galloway Vs Angle, but next, Beer Money Beer Bash.

Raquel is coming to Impact Wrestling to take out the Knockouts soon.

Christy Hemme is in the crowd, wanting to know who is ready for a beer bash.

Here comes the returning, 4-time TNA Tag Team Champions, Beer Money.

The ring surrounded by beer.

James has been drinking a little today, but he wants to welcome us to the Beer Money Drunk And Ready episode.  Because when they are drunk, they are ready.

There comes a time when a man has to decide when to make a living for his family, and that day came for James when he decided to come back, and reunite the greatest tag team in wrestling.  Beer Money.

Roode has been boozing a bit himself, and when he’s drunk, he gets a little emotional.

What tore them up is what brought them together in the first place, and that is to prove they are the best.  Whether it’s going for singles gold, or tag gold, they are cut from the same cloth.

And it took Roode years later, when he won the World Heavyweight Title for the second time, and did it the right way, by earning it.  He realized what he did to James years ago, and what he did to the fans was wrong.  He’s sorry.

They are sorry for all of the times they screwed each other over.

They are sorry, and they are good.

James wants to make a toast to the greatest tag team partner Storm has ever had.  He proved he is the best, and the “It” Factor of Professional Wrestling.

Roode wants to say Storm is someone who always started a bar fight, and would watch his back, and they are the greatest tag team in professional wrestling.

But there is something missing here.  A party needs a bit of a beer bash.

So they give us the Beer Money chant.

Enter Eric Young and Bram, calling them pathetic.

Eric hurt Storm in the World Title Series, and he quit.  Then he came back and got back into his business.  Roode, he took the World Title from him, so Young took it back from him, and it was the best night of his life.

Eric doesn’t even like friends, he doesn’t like Bram, but he appreciates what he does.  And he hates their guts.

Roode has something Young wants, something that belongs to him.  He wants the King of the Mountain Title, and he wants it now.

Roode suggests they have a title match for the King of the Mountain title, now.

That match is next.

Eric Young steals the King of the Mountain Title from Roode, with a piledriver.

Still to come tonight, Angle Vs Galloway.

Mr. Anderson is ready for his debut show, Open Mic with Matt Hardy, next.

Backstage, Mike Bennett meets up with EC3.  Maria and Mike congratulate EC3 for his title win.  Next week is Mike’s TNA debut.

EC3 isn’t impressed by this.

Flashback footage of Matt Hardy Vs EC3, and the history they have with the TNA World Heavyweight Title.

Huh??? with Mr. Anderson.

Alot of people have been accusing Mr. Anderson of being an asshole.  So are there are other assholes in the building tonight?

His guest has a wonderful family, accompanied to the ring by his wife Remy, and his son, Maxwell, Matt Hardy.

The two of them have known each other for a long time.  But Matt was the World Heavyweight Champion.  Then he lost it.  He had a chance to win it again, but he choked.

Matt was unstoppable at the World Title Series, and EC3 didn’t beat him, Eric Young piledrove him.

Anderson doesn’t buy that, it was just an excuse.

Hardy wants to know if Anderson wants Hardy to admit he was a failure, he never quit and won’t until he wins the World Heavyweight Title again.

Anderson brings up Jeff putting everything on the line, is he doing Matt’s dirty work?

Matt talks up he loves Remy, he loves Maxwell, and he has an offer EC3 won’t refuse.  He is Matt Hardy, and Matt Hardy will never die.

They all walk out, but Remy gives Anderson an evil eye.


Tonight, Drew Galloway Vs Kurt Angle.  Christy Hemme is standing by with Drew Galloway.

Storytime with Drew.

He has always wanted a chance to face Kurt, but tonight, they are in the main event.  He is here to make a guarantee, he will make his mark tonight.  Kurt can prove he is the best even at 95 years old, but Drew must prove he is the best.  So expect everything.

Next, Champions Showcase.  The Wolves and Tigre Uno together as a team.

Earlier tonight, Eric Young defeated Bobby Roode, to become the King of the Mountain Champion, with some help from Bram.

It looks like they formed an alliance here.

The Wolves and Tigre Uno Vs DJZ, Eli Drake, and Jessie Godderz.

DJZ had enough of Jessie Godderz, and gave him a Superkick, and The Wolves pick up the win.

Angle Vs Galloway tonight.

The Hardyz are backstage together, Matt has something to offer EC3 that he can’t refuse.  Remy rushes past Jeff, and takes Matt.

EC3 is in the ring.

Matt comes to the ring.

Ethan has everything Matt wants, and Matt has nothing Ethan wants.

They come from different backgrounds.  Matt started from the ground up, but EC3 will always be known as a Carter.  But they will always be rivals, and how about Hardy offers something for EC3 that has to do with fate.

How about Matt gives EC3 a chance to control his fate, his destiny.  EC3 gives him one more World Title match, and if he can’t beat you, then Matt leaves Impact Wrestling forever.

EC3 isn’t respected by Matt, because he has beaten him time and time again.  If they do this, they do this by his terms.

EC3 offers a Last Standing Match, next week, for the World Heavyweight Title.

Our main event is up now, Galloway Vs Angle.


























WWE Monday Night Raw 1/11/16…The Beast Returns To His Throne

Let’s face it, this is Brock Lesnar’s ring, and we are all there to see it.  Tonight, “The Beast Incarnate” returns.  You have to think he is going to enter into the Rumble match, and have a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Title, since Roman Reigns is defending his title against 29 other men.

Will we see Reigns and Brock have a moment?

Also, tonight we will hear that Sting is the first inductee into the 2016 WWE Hall of Fame.

So watch Clemson Vs Bama game, but keep checking on this page tonight, throughout.

Raw is 45 minutes away.

Last Monday, we see what took place before Reigns Vs Sheamus took place.  Vince McMahon orders Reigns to defend his WWE World Title, at Royal Rumble, in the Royal Rumble match.

We begin the show with all of the wrestlers on the top ramp.

A Fandango sighting too.

Mr. McMahon comes out with Stephanie, who is dancing to Vince’s entrance music, which is funny.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show, this is the 23rd anniversary of Raw, yet there was no advertisement.

Vince tells us to take a look at the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

But who is it?  Someone will make history.

Roman Reigns will defend his title against 29 other superstars.  And that in itself is history.

It’s every man for themselves.  It could be Dolph Ziggler.

For 10 long years, he has grabbed that big brass ring, but now is his chance.

It could be Kevin Owens.  He has made a big transition this year, it could cement his status.

It could be The New Day.

But now the lights go out, and standing at ringside is The Wyatt Family.

As Bray always said, anyone but you Roman, anyone but you.

Vince ignores this, and says it could be Brock Lesnar.

Enter Roman Reigns.

Take it easy, pal.

Did he come out here to beat up on Steph’s father, again?  No, don’t think so, pal.

But what happens if Reigns wins?

Is Roman looking at what he is facing?  Vince tells her it’s a possibility.  They were talking about that, so why not they give him an opportunity tonight, called 1 Vs All match.

Oh shit, Reigns Vs 10, maybe 20.

It could be against anyone, including his brother, Dean Ambrose.

Vince tells Dean he is in his first match, pal.

Sheamus knocks Ambrose from behind.

So it’s Sheamus Vs Ambrose, next.

This turns out to be a double countout when both men beat the hell out of each other.  Sheamus opens up after getting hit on the pole.

But now the announce table goes off, and here comes Kevin Owens, attacking Ambrose from behind.

WWE Network plug now.

Tonight, The Highlight Reel returns, with Chris Jericho’s guests being The New Day.

Also tonight, One Versus All.  Reigns Vs the field.

We are live in New Orleans, the home of Wrestlemania 30.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw.  Ambrose and Owens fighting.

Renee Young is in the trainer’s room, with Ambrose being checked on.  Dean assures Renee he is alive, and that is bad news for Kevin Owens.

The McMahons meet up with Paul Heyman.

Heyman loves the concept of One Vs All match tonight.  And he is impressed with Brock Lesnar’s name being included in the Royal Rumble match.

But his client, Brock Lesnar is a prizefighter, and why wouldn’t he be included in the Wrestlemania main event match, fighting for the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

Mr. McMahon doesn’t like the idea, and Stephanie suggests they talk in their office.

Stardust comes out to the ring, paying homage to David Bowie.  He is facing O’ Neil, next.

Titus wins again with Clash of the Titus.

Stardust attacks Titus, from behind.  There seems to be alot of that going on, tonight.

Next, the return of The Highlight Reel.

Chris Jericho comes out to The Highlight Reel.

Welcome to Raw is Jericho!!

People around the world has been talking about Chris Jericho’s return to Raw, to save the WWE.  Please check out the obscenely, expensive, ginormous Jericho 2500.

We check out all of the tweets that people have been saying about Jericho’s return.  And ever since he has come back, there is a rebirth.  Once again, Star Wars is breaking records.  Guns and Roses is coming back, and Chris Jericho is back to save the WWE.

But how are you going to save the WWE again?

It’s simple, it starts in 2 weeks when he enters the Royal Rumble match, and he becomes a 7-time World Heavyweight Champion.

It’s a New Day for the rooty-tooty booties.

New Day decided to come out, since Jericho didn’t introduce them, and save this show.

They are still upset Chris called them rooty-tooty booty last week.

They are the WWE World Tag Team Champions!!  And they are the real Slammy-Award winning tag team of the year.  And they have had enough of his shameful return to WWE.  His shameful hair.  His shameful scarf.


Here come The Usos, with the real Slammy Awards.

If they are the Slammy Award Winners of Tag Team of the Year, then where are their Slammys?

The Usos want a match against New Day.

The New Day tell them there are 2 of them, so how can they fairly face 3 of them?

Wait a second dumbass, as Jericho put it.

There are 6 of them, so how about we have Big E. and Kofi, with Xavier Woods in their corner facing The Usos, and Chris Jericho in their corner.

The match takes place, next.

The Usos win the match, when Jey rolls up Kofi for the win.  Jericho broke Xavier’s trombone to cause the distraction.

John Cena tore his triceps, and will be out for a few months.

Tonight, United States Title match.  Kalisto Vs Del Rio.

Stephanie and Heyman are still ironing out things.  The winner of the Royal Rumble needs to main event Wrestlemania against the biggest money-maker in WWE, Brock Lesnar.

They aren’t on the same page.  Stephanie doesn’t agree with this.

Stephanie makes it clear, the man who owns Brock’s contract will compete in the Royal Rumble.

JBL is in the ring to announce the very first member of the WWE Hall of Fame 2016.

The Man They Call Sting.

Just an amazing career for “The Franchise” Sting.

The Wyatts are facing The Social Outcasts in an 8-man tag match.

The match ends in a no contest, when Ryback comes out and takes out The Wyatts, with some help from The Social Outcasts.

This past Thursday night on Smackdown, Kalisto defeated Alberto Del Rio.

Renee Young is with Kalisto.

This is the biggest match of his career, and the United States Title means the world to Kalisto.  Because that means an opportunity for any race.  John Cena, he gave people chances.  Eddie Guerrero, he fought for pride.  Del Rio doesn’t give guys chances, but tonight, he’s getting that chance.

United States Title match is next.

Del Rio tells the world that John Cena won’t be going to the Royal Rumble, because of him.  And John Cena will not be going to Wrestlemania, because he broke him.  And tonight, he squashes Kalisto like a mosquito.

Kalisto Vs Del Rio is now.

Kalisto picks up the upset win, and is the new United States Champion, when he rolls up Del Rio.

Tonight, One Vs All match with Reigns Vs The Locker Room.

Last Monday night, Becky Lynch defeated Charlotte, and Charlotte attacked Becky, from behind.

Jo-Jo is with Charlotte and Ric Flair.

Charlotte attacked Becky, after she beat her fair and square.  Charlotte will do anything to be champion, and Becky knows deep down inside she will never be as good as Charlotte.  If anything, Becky is the victim, and Charlotte is the victim.

That’s my little girl Jo-Jo….WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Brie Bella Vs Charlotte never happened, because Becky Lynch attacked Charlotte.  Flair made it clear his daughter wasn’t working the match, and we went to a break.

Moments ago, we see what we saw.  Becky Lynch is being interviewed by Jo-Jo, and Becky is alone, which makes her dangerous.

Earlier tonight, Mr. McMahon and Stephanie included Brock Lesnar into the Rumble match, which didn’t make Heyman very happy.

He’s telling Lesnar as we speak, and our main event, One Vs All match is now.

The McMahons come out, with their dancing.  At least they are in good moods.  It’s Reigns Vs The World, and he will continue, until he can’t go anymore, so Kevin Owens is up first.

It was what you’d expect, the match ends in a no contest, and here comes The Beast to clean house.  He takes out the wrestlers who were outside of the ring, and gives Reigns a F-5 to show the world who the biggest prizefighter is in WWE.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was the most disappointing show I have seen in quite some time.  It just felt like WWE completely used Brock Lesnar’s name value, knew full well people would be watching NCAA championship anyway, and phoned it in.

I did like Kalisto winning US Title, if for nothing else other than to elevate the title.  They weren’t doing anything with Alberto Del Rio as US Champion.

But now is the time to do this, and I am talking about bringing back the US Title Open Challenge.

Titles have to mean something, and that starts it.

I also loved the Sting package, very well done and this is a man who has done it all, including wrestling at Wrestlemania.

Other than that, what else did we get?  What was your thought on the show?  Do you agree?  Send me your thoughts.



























Impact Wrestling Live 1/5/16…Welcome To Pop TV

Tonight, these warriors vie to be called champion.  4 men all compete in the Semi-finals of the World Title Series.

Eric Young, Lashley, Matt Hardy, and EC3 all fight for that crown.

Impact Wrestling, on Pop Tv is now.

We are live in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  Josh Matthews and The Pope welcome us to the show.

TNA President Dixie Carter is in the ring.

Dixie welcomes us to Pop TV, and tells us that Pop TV is for the fans, and she has the World Title, telling us that all 4 men will fight for the title.

But we have EC3 and Tyrus interrupt the festivities.

This is live TV, and this is a Carter family reunion.  So he sees this as a great time to air grievances.

Grievance number 1, , Aunt D, it upset her that EC3 beat Kurt Angle to be the TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

Grievance number 2, it upset her that he defended that title defiantly every single week.

Grievance number 3, she robbed EC3.  At Bound For Glory, she stacked the deck so he can’t defend his title fairly.

But it all ends tonight, when he wins this tournament, and becomes the undisputed, undefeated, all-purpose 2-time TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

Aunt D tells him he needs to look hard in the mirror at what he has done, and what he has become.  All of this is because of EC3.  Matt Hardy at Bound for Glory won this championship, and he used lawyers to get his way.

How does it make him feel he robbed Matt?

And speaking of Matt, here he comes.

Same old EC3 song and dance, boring. The only people who were robbed were the fans, when his lawyer team took the TNA World Title. But now, we get to crown a new champion, and spoiler alert, it will be Hardy.

Hardy doesn’t like EC3, EC3 doesn’t like Hardy, and we see Eric Young attack Hardy.

Lashley comes out and goes after EC3, EY, and Tyrus.

All four men in the World Title Series are brawling.

Tonight, Hardy Vs Young, and Lashley Vs EC3.

Hardy takes out all four men when we go to a break.

During the commercial break, EY took Hardy out with a chair, and almost took him out with a piledriver.

But now. it’s EC3 Vs Lashley, winner moves on to the finals.

EC3 rolls up Lashley, after Tyrus distracted Lashley long enough for EC3 to pick up the win.

EC3 is moving on to the Finals match, later tonight.

Kurt Angle is walking, he is next.

“The Miracle” makes his debut tonight.

Bobby Roode is outside, he issued an open challenge for his King of the Mountain Title.

This open challenge is for anyone, from any promotion, because tonight, people will find out it pays to be Roode.

Kurt Angle is heading to the ring, now.

Kurt is getting some love, as you would expect.

Kurt has been very blessed to be in the spotlight for 20 years. From winning an Olympic Gold Medal, to winning 13 World Titles in the ring. Thank you.

Everytime he walks through the curtain, it’s an honor for him, and every time he pulls down his straps, and hears the roar of the crowd. He is living his dream, thank you. It’s a very exciting time to be an Impact Wrestling fan, on Pop TV.

He has made it public that he is stepping down.

The crowd wants one more match, and Kurt said he has faced some of the best performers in the ring. It’s important for him to have high-caliber matches for his farewell tour. He is thinking about who to face off in the Kurt Angle Farewell Tour, and this man he will face next week, Drew Galloway.

The young fan in him is pretty psyched up about this, but the wrestler in him thanks for this opportunity. He started in TNA with a bang. He steps up when necessary, but this is beyond words.

Jesse Godderz interrupted this, and calls himself a “Superstar”. He started on TV with Big Brother for 7 years on CBS, with all due respect, he is the veteran here. Look at him….

Eli Drake interrupts the festivities.

Eli tells us Godderz is very good with the 13-year old demograph, with his selfies. But Eli goes for the draw. He insults Jesse, but tells him that if they had a chance, they could beat The Wolves in the ring.

Kurt challenges both Jesse and Eli to come out and fight Kurt and Drew.

Kurt and Drew take care of business.

JB is in the back, trying to get an update on Matt Hardy. He runs into Jeff Hardy.

Nothing is going to stop Matt’s night, at the end of the night, Jeff will raise Matt’s hand.

Next, it’s Hardy vs Young.

Eric Young is inside the ring, when we come back.

Matt Hardy is finished, because when he swings a chair, he swings for keeps. We are looking at one of the finalists of the World Title Series. He orders the ref to count him out.

Creatures, mount up.

Hardy Vs Young, now.

Matt Hardy wins the match with a Twist of Fate. Young gave him a Piledriver on the outside, we even had Jeff come out to check on his brother, but Matt prevails, and will face EC3 tonight.

Bobby Roode’s Open Challenge is next, and someone is walking in the back.

We come back, EY is livid about what just happened. Everyone is against him, and everyone is going to pay.

EC3 and Tyrus confronts Jeff, and they tell him Jeff will be blamed for the loss Matt is going to suffer, and Jeff doesn’t think so.

Bobby Roode is coming out to the ring, ready for the King of the Mountain Open Challenge.

The person challenging Roode is Bram. He hates everyone, and 2006 is his year. Okay, 2016.

The match is now.

Roode wins with the Roode Bomb, and Eric Young attacks Roode from behind. Bram helps Young out, and now it’s 2-on-1 attack.

But James Storm comes out through the crowd to help his friend. Gives EY a Last Call.

About 5 or 6 months ago, people kept asking the same question, why did he leave Impact Wrestling? The answer was simple, he didn’t like the person he was becoming. And one day, his granny told him that ain’t him, and Storm told her she was right. He is a creel swimming, deer skinning, beer drinking, Johnny Cash listening S.O.B. from Tennessee.

Plain and simple, he wasn’t having fun anymore. So when he was traveling around, and trying to find himself. He turned on the TV, and saw Impact Wrestling, to see he won the most disappointing award. And he has been in this company for 13 years, help make this company. And companies do not make James Storm, James Storm makes companies.

Then there is Roode.

They drank alot of beer together. And they made alot of money. So Storm says it’s time to get back to having fun.

Storm has 2 beers.

You guys want them to have some fun?

Hey, Beer?


Beer Money is back in business, baby.

JB is in the back with The Beautiful People. A 7 and a half month pregnant Angelina Love won’t wrestle, but they do have a person in mind to compete in the 6 Knockout match against The Dollhouse, that might hate them just as much as they do.

This Friday night, live on PPV, at One Night Only, Beer Money will face Bram and EY.

It’s going to be the current Knockout Champion, Gail Kim.

Gail Kim rolls up Jade and pins her for the win.

The Dollhouse now attacks all three women.

Enter Awesome Kong.

Kong takes out Beautiful People, and is hired muscle for The Dollhouse.

Kong gave Gail and Implant Buster.

Tonight, TNA World Title is on the line, Hardy Vs EC3.

“The Miracle” happens, next.

Tonight, we crown a new champion, but now “The Miracle” is among us.

It’s Maria Kanellis, she is the first lady of professional wrestling. She sees us hoping and praying that someone will offer us that dream job. Hoping and praying that we get to lose those 5-75 pounds. Hoping and praying someone will save professional wrestling. Today is our most blessed day, because what we want most of all is a miracle. Do we believe in miracles? She does, and his name is Mike Bennett.

Former ROH Tag Team Champion Mike Bennett is here.

And just like that, our internet darling is the miracle who will save TNA. There has been alot of buzz about what is this miracle, or who is the miracle.

Those that know him already knows he is an international superstar, he is a modern-day superhero, he is the baddest mo-fo on the show. And he is our Pro Wrestling “Jesus”.

But those that don’t know him, allow him to introduce us to our hero.

He is here to save pro wrestling. Because when he was a kid, it was fun, it was mainstream. But now, pro wrestling is filled up with washed-up peeps that call themselves pro wrestlers, and he is here to change that.

Speaking of washed-up, moments from now, when Matt Hardy faces EC3, that won’t be the moment. The moment will take place when Mike Bennett goes for the TNA World Title, and the fans will chant Go Bennett Go, and the announcers scream out do you believe in miracles, and we will chant yes we do.

Matt Hardy is ready for his title match, he dedicates this match to his wife Reby Sky, and their little boy.

Hardy Vs EC3 is next.

Backstage live, Drew Galloway is thanking Kurt for this opportunity of a lifetime, and Kurt tells Drew he isn’t taking this match lightly. The Wolves show up, they appreciate the love and respect Kurt gave them earlier tonight. They want a challenge match this Friday night, at One Night Only.

But now Eli Drake and Jesse Godderz want the same thing.

Triple Threat match is set this Friday night.

EC3 Vs Matt Hardy is now.

Jeff and Tyrus leave the ring, so there would be a final winner, no interference.

EC3 wins the match, and the title with a One Percenter off the top rope. Matt’s wife and little boy were at ringside, and after the match, she consoled him, and he didn’t want to hear anything.

We end the show with EC3 holding the TNA World Title.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Tonight was a good show, but not a great one. It annoyed me in seeing a 5 minute review of Schlittler’s Creek. I get it, the show is the highest rated program on Pop TV, but really? Especially before the main event match? Just not a fan of that, how about doing a preview AFTER the show, and not during it?

Loved seeing James Storm come back, and while I did become a fan of “Revolution” James Storm, he called it like it was, he just wasn’t having fun with that role, so now he’s back to “Cowboy” James Storm, and we will see where we go from there.

Interesting we are getting a live One Night Only PPV, and I wonder if that is going to be a normal thing throughout the months? Why not? I won’t see it this week, but down the road? Who knows, they still have to start to build these shows for the PPVs.

I love EC3, and he is the right man to win the title, but who takes it from him, and gives him his first pinfall? That is something TNA creative needs to figure out, and give us that long build.

We didn’t need Dixie Carter tonight.

We’ll see where “The Miracle” Mike Bennett goes from here. I did like him with The Kingdom in ROH, but it’s good to see Maria with him too.

Like I said, a good show, but not great. What were your thoughts of the show? Send them to me here.

WWE Monday Night Raw 1/4/16…Biggest Show Of The Year

After a month and a half absence, I am back.  I hope everyone had a great holiday.  Christmas came so fast for me, but I am ready for 2016 to be a good year, and this includes wrestling.  We are beginning The Road to Royal Rumble, which means shortly, The Road to Wrestlemania will begin.

And tonight’s Raw is setting up to be big, with our main event being Reigns Vs Sheamus, for the WWE World Title and Mr. McMahon will serve as the special guest ref.

Here we go, a 3 hour tour begins….now.

We see footage from last week, when Mr. McMahon was arrested. We also see the conclusion of Cena Vs Del Rio, when Vince comes back, after posting bond. Vince orders the title match this week.

We are live, in San Antonio. Stephanie McMahon kicks the show off, but here comes Roman Reigns.

Roman tells Steph this isn’t about her, this is about her dad. So Roman calls out Vince, right now.

Vince isn’t here yet, but will be here to referee his title match tonight against Sheamus. The odds aren’t really in Roman’s favor.

This is Roman’s life, if he doesn’t have this title, he doesn’t have a job, and he doesn’t provide for his family. So this title is his life, this is his family. And nobody will take that away from him.

Stephanie is almost touched, and asks the crowd if Roman is going to win tonight, and the crowd likes it. Stephanie tells us the fans all have hope every Monday night, because they live their miserable lives. But hope is just a story, because nobody beats Vince, and gets away with it. All charges have been dropped, and Stephanie makes this clear. She is the boss, and Roman is the “help”. But she won’t fire him, even when he loses. She is just going to simply use him, until his body breaks down and he can’t go anymore. Then what happens is the fans will stop cheering him, and will cheer the next arrogant superstar. So she is going to do the same thing Vince did to his father, and use him.

Roman warns Steph not to worry about his father, she needs to worry about her own. Because if he screws him out of his title match, she won’t pick him up from jail, she will pick him up from the hospital.

Believe that.

Footage from last week, when Neville beat Kevin Owens. Kevin took out his frustration out on Neville, and now Ambrose.

Here comes the Intercontinental Champion, greeting Reigns on the top ramp. Ambrose joins the commentary, for Owens Vs Neville….next.

“The Beast” returns next week, on Raw.

Owens Vs Neville, now.

Pop-Up Powerbomb, match is done. A good match here, Neville tried, but Owens prevailed. Owens and Ambrose have a staredown, and Owens comes back to the ring, attacks Neville. And here comes Ambrose.

Well, there goes the announce table, 30 minutes into the show. Ambrose nails an elbow drop on Owens through the table, which is awesome.

Payback from last week.

Vince has entered the building. Jo-Jo catches up with him, not a good idea there Jo-Jo.

Again, all of the charges have been dropped, but the irony is the one who broke the law, with this week, being the guest referee, he is the law.

Titus O’ Neil Vs Stardust, now.

Titus wins with Clash of the Titans. Maybe this “rivalry” is done?

Becky Lynch is backstage, warming up for her match. Charlotte approaches her. She faces Becky tonight, even though she already beat her “fair and square”.

In the spirit of “competition”…..


Naitch is back.

Charlotte Vs Becky Lynch is now.

Becky wins, holding the tights. Flair is livid, after he was trying to hold her foot.

But now Charlotte officially turns heel, and attacks Becky.

Papa is proud.

Vince is with some guy, when Sheamus runs into them. Vince tells the guy to run. Tonight will be history, and this deserves some integrity, so he runs the rules with him.

No outside interference, no eye gouging, and above all else, Sheamus will obey Vince. And maybe, the irish luck be with him.

Reigns Vs Sheamus, with Mr. MaMahon as special guest ref, tonight.

Ryback vs Big Show is now.

The Wyatt Family come out, and this match is a no contest.

Braun Strowman takes care of Ryback, and now they have their eyes set on Big Show.

Big Show tries to fight back, but the numbers game takes over, and Strowman is made to look like a beast here.

Bray makes a comment about they will take over at Royal Rumble.

They will run, and they all will fall down. Follow the buzzards.

Del Rio and Rusev Vs The Uso Brothers is up now.

Brock Lesnar is coming back next week, and will be at the Friday house show in Houston.

League of Nations wins when Del Rio pins Jey after a top rope double foot stomp.

Tonight, Reigns Vs Sheamus for WWE World Title with Mr. McMahon is the special guest ref.

Ziggler Vs Heath Slater?

Oh lord, we have Slater, Adam Rose, Bo Dallas, and Curtis Axel…TOGETHER.

Slater wins with a rollup, after Bo Dallas and Adam Rose distracted Ziggler.

The push of Slater has BEGUN!!

Slater tells WWE Universe that he has found some friends.

Rose gives us some gibberish, Axel tells us the chains are off. And Bo tells us they all BOlieve…together.

Trending worldwide, #SocialOutcasts.


The New Day have a glorious gong, and they are up, next.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, the new home on USA Network, we will see Lynch vs Charlotte, for the Divas Title.

Vince is telling Reigns the instructions for Roman’s title match.

Ohhhhh San Antonio, don’t you dare be sour. Clap for your 2-time WWE World Tag Team Champions, it’s a NEW DAY!! Yes it is!!

2016 will be the most spectacular year, and it starts tonight when they take out The Dudley Boyz, faster than Mike Tyson broke his booty on his hoverboard.

They give us a reenactment of that moment.

The crowd is silent.

So this is our present to all of us.

The clock goes down to 10….9….8….7….6….5….

But we have a surprise present, it’s Y2J Baby!!

Chris Jericho, daddy-O.

Welcome to Raw is Jericho!!

I missed that line.

He is Chris Jericho, our party host, and one of the most charismatic showmen in WWE history.

And for everyone that knows him, he says all hail the Ayatollah of Rock and Rollah.

And once again, he is here to save the WWE.

Xavier corrects Chris that they already saved the WWE, through power of positivity.

All Chris is seeing are 3 unicorn wearing jackasses.

And already, ratings are up, because of Chris Jericho. The stats have shown, the subscriptions, the live show attendance, the TV ratings need a shot of Y2J!!

Chris apologizes that we had to witness 5 minutes of Greenday wearing their 3 magical unicorns and doing their roody-toody booty gyrations.

Big E. wants to know who has a roody-toody booty, and Chris says they do. We get a chant to start-up, and Chris tells them to shut the hell up.

They may not have anything important to say, but Chris does. January 24th, he is officially in the Royal Rumble, and he will throw out 29 other people, and main event Wrestlemania for the second time. And that makes sense, since he is a 6-time World Heavyweight Champion.

And he is serving notice that the front office, the monkeys in the truck, people in the back, all of the superstars watching, and the Jericholics will never…..




Dudleys and Kalisto Vs New Day is next.

The New Day wins with a double team move, that ends with Big E’s Big Ending.

Our main event, Sheamus Vs Reigns is tonight, with Mr. McMahon being the special guest ref.

The “Beast Incarnate”, mayor of “Suplex City” is back, next week. Brock Lesnar is in Houston.

WWE Network is now available in Japan.

Our main event, Reigns Vs Sheamus is now. Vince McMahon is our special guest ref.

Well, Vince gave us a fast count, he even “lost” his contact lens, but Reigns fights back. He gave Vince a Superman Punch, and laid Sheamus out with a spear. But no referee.

Here comes Stephanie McMahon, but she couldn’t stop Reigns. But Sheamus did, with a Brogue Kick. Here comes Scott Armstrong, making his return to ref, but Reigns counts out at 2.

Reigns gives Sheamus another Superman Punch, gives Armstrong one for good measure, and here comes the ref from a few weeks ago, John Collins.

And Reigns retains his title.

So Vince makes a shocking statement, Reigns will defend his WWE World Title at Royal Rumble, IN the Royal Rumble, against 29 other men.

And the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

See technically, this match should have ended in a no contest. John Collins, or whatever the ref’s name is wasn’t the official ref, Vince was.

But I digress….

It was great to see Chris Jericho, and now he has an opportunity to be the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion…..if he wins the Rumble.

They should give us a 40-man Rumble match, what the hell? Make this feel more important, right?

Overall, a good show. You get the feeling Brock is out next week to compete with NCAA Championship game, between Alabama Vs Clemson.

So, I am looking forward to see the must-see superstar.

Shocked though not to see Cena, after he returned the last week. You have to think he will be at the show next week to say he is in the Rumble match, right?

Impact Wrestling 11/18/15…Win Or Go Home

It’s been a while since I have watched Impact Wrestling.  I have followed it, so I know what is going on.  But tonight seems to be an important night to watch, since the premise is if you lose, you go home.  The World Series Title showdown continues.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Last week, Matt Hardy, Gail Kim, and EC3 advanced to the Quarter-Finals.  Who moves on tonight?

Awesome Kong Vs Brooke tonight, Eric Young Vs “Cowboy” James Storm, and Bobby Roode Vs Abyss.

Also a face-to-face between Matt Hardy and EC3.

Josh Matthews and The Pope welcome us to the show.  Tonight, the TNA Originals are focused.

But next, from Group Knockouts, Brooke Vs Kong.

Kong wins the match with a Chokeslam, which means Kong advances, and Brooke goes home.

Group TNA Originals have one match to go.  Tonight, Young Vs Storm, and Roode Vs Abyss.

But next, an exclusive face-to-face with EC3 and Matt Hardy.

Kong advanced moments ago in Group Knockouts, and has moved on to Quarter-Finals of World Title Series.

Josh and Pope ask how far Gail Kim or Awesome Kong can go now that they are facing their male counterparts?

Next week, we will find out the pairings.

Hardy and EC3 are face-to-face.

Hardy is ready to get his title back.  Matt advanced in the Tag Team Specialist.  Hardy swept through his round.

EC3 is disgusted that he’s scaring screen time, with Hardy.  But he proved he is what has said he is, a winner.

Matt wants EC3 next, because they have unfinished business, after Bound for Glory.

He will take the World Heavyweight Title from EC3, and he has to be the one to take his undefeated streak.

EC3 is hoping and praying that he has a chance to face Hardy, and really more than anything he is hoping he gets him in the finals.

Josh calls Matt the favorite to win the tournament, but EC3 is not impressed.  He is undefeated, he is the next World Heavyweight Champion.

Eric Young has some thoughts.

The best thing Storm can do is not show up.  If he comes to the ring, he guarantees Storm will get hurt.  Cross him, and we will see what happens.  Storm is a shadow of his former self.  EY is a world-class man, a world-class champion, and he will prove it.

Tonight, Young Vs Storm.

Moments ago, EC3 stormed out of the interview.  Later tonight, we will hear from both men, individually.

Tigre Uno Vs Manik in the World Title Series, if Uno wins, there is a playoff.  If Manik wins, he and DJ Z advance.

Tigre wins with the Corkscrew, and now there is 3 men tied, between DJ Z, Manik, and Tigre.

Tonight, Storm Vs Young and Roode Vs Abyss.

A recap of how we got here.

Next, it’s Storm Vs Young.

Moments ago, Tigre Uno defeated Manik, and there is a 3 way tie with Group X-Division.

Next week, Triple Threat, Sudden Death.

Winners of 2 falls, they advance.

Next, Storm Vs Young, but we hear from Bobby Roode.

Roode will do whatever it takes to be a 3-time World Champion.

Storm Vs Young is now.

Young wins the match with a kick to the groin, and a Piledriver for good measure.

Eric Young advances to the Quarter-Finals of the World Title Series.

This was James Storm’s last TNA match.  Thank you “Cowboy” for some great memories.

Tonight, Roode Vs Abyss.

Next week, Lashley Vs Aries.  Loser goes home.

Next, an interview with Matt Hardy.

Moments ago, Young moved on, pinning Storm with a Piledriver.

Another interview with Matt Hardy.

Matt was the one who won the World Title at Bound for Glory.  So this is personal.

Matt is confident he can win that title again.

Our next match is Shera Vs O’ Shea.

Shera wins the match with a Sky High, and has advanced in the World Title Series.

Eric Young is a winner, and proves he wins, and everyone loses.  He will keep taking.

Eli Drake is set to compete against Crimson.

Eli wins the match, okay moving on.

We hear from EC3.

He feels disrespected, and isn’t okay.  But he will be after he defeats Hardy, and eliminates him from the tournament.

He is not obsessed with Matt Hardy, but is obsessed with beating Hardy.

Eli Drake advanced to the round of 16, joining Shera, Kong, and Young.

Next week, Triple Threat Sudden Change.  Also next week, Godderz Vs Micah.  Also Richards Vs Robbie E.  And Aries Vs Lashley.

Our main event, Abyss Vs Roode is now.

Roode wins with a Spinebuster, advancing to the World Title Series, and the show ends here.

Next week, World Title Series continues.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I hate how Matt Hardy lost the title, after Bound for Glory, but I loved the videos they gave us, profiling the contestants in this large tournament.

Thank you to “Cowboy” James Storm for giving us a memorable run in TNA.  He gave us such memorable tag teams as America’s Most Wanted, and Beer Money.  He also did some great things, winning the TNA World Title, defeating Kurt Angle.  He had memorable feuds, including Bobby Roode.  Such an amazing career, and now I look forward to what he does in the next phase of his career.

I hated how they treated him in commentary, he had to make a choice for himself and his family.

I want to see how this plays out, but I hate seeing Shera become a dancing fool.  You never, ever make money with a dancing fool.

What were your thoughts of the show?


















WWE Monday Night Raw 11/16/15…Who Survives The Final Four?

We are 6 days away from Survivor Series, when a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion is crowned.  Tonight, 4 Quarter-Final matches will be worked, and we will find out who heads to Survivor Series vying the title.

But first, we give a moments of silence to the people who lost loved ones in the horrible Paris tragedy.

We get the opening intro, and are live, with Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

Tonight, Owens Vs Neville.  Also tonight, Ambrose Vs Ziggler, Del Rio Vs Kalisto, and Reigns Vs Cesaro.

We kick the night off with the druids, but is it for Brothers of Destruction?


This is Undertaker Week, on WWE Network.

Last week, Bray Wyatt eulogized Taker and Kane.  Bray learned the hard way you can’t kill a dead man.

Standing before you is the true army of darkness.  And on the horizon, vengeance awaits The Wyatt Family.  They tried to take their souls, but there is no man living….or dead that contains the power of The Dark Side.

Kane adds when you try to steal the flames of hell, you will get burned.  At Survivor Series, they have reserved a special place for Bray Wyatt and his family, a special place in hell.  Where they will suffer through eternal.

Bray Wyatt, his evil is no match for theirs.  It has been tested time and time again.  So Bray, choose wisely which members will sacrifice, because The Brothers of Destruction have already decided their fate in destiny, and they will never rest in peace.

Enter The Wyatt Family.

For 25 years Undertaker, he has reigned over the WWE.  Empires made, and molded through darkness.  For 25 years, he has instilled darkness and fear.  But he says 25 years is enough, and it’s time for a new army to reign supreme, his army.  The Brothers of Destruction no longer tell the wolves when to howl.  Those days are gone.  Bray is the new face of fear.  And after Survivor Series, they will find out he is the one….he is Bray Wyatt.

And as for his creatures of the night, they are his.

The lights go out, and come back on to see the druids are wearing the sheep masks.


The druids are now attacking Undertaker and Kane.

A message to The Wyatt Family, double chokeslams.

Now comes The Wyatt Family, but Bray stops them.  Their dates with destiny is this Sunday.  But until then, Undertaker and Kane….follow the buzzards.

Next, Owens Vs Neville.

Owens wins the match with a Pop-Up Powerbomb, advancing to the Semi-Finals match this Sunday, at Survivor Series.

Owens faces the winner of Ambrose Vs Ziggler, which we will see later tonight.

Paige wins the Divas Title in her first night.  But we will get an official Divas Championship Contract Signing, tonight.

Moments ago, we see Kevin Owens defeat Neville to advance to Semi-Final of WWE World Title tournament.  HHH is talking with Owens, is he making an offer to KO?

Last week, we saw HHH ask Reigns if he wants to be HHH’s MAN.  He rejected the offer.

Tyler Breeze is in action, next.

It’s Breeze Vs Truth, now.

Breeze wins the match with a Beauty Shot.

His first Raw win for “Prince Pretty”.

Ziggler Vs Ambrose, Quarter-Final match is next.

Ambrose wins a fun match with Dirty Deeds, advancing to the Semi-Finals to face Owens at Survivor Series.

If Ambrose wins the WWE Championship at Survivor Series, he is going to turn things upside down.  There will be less talking, and more action.  He will throw everything out the window, and will make this The Ambrose Asylum.

Later tonight, Del Rio Vs Kalisto.  Also Reigns Vs Cesaro.

Footage of Charlotte’s WWE debut.

Tonight, Divas Championship Contract Signing.  Charlotte Vs Paige.

6-man tag match with The New Day.

For some strange reason, the only anniversary people want to talk about is The Undertaker?  People should be talking about the anniversary of the most entertaining group in WWE history, one year anniversary of The New Day?

But did they get invited to The Tonight Show?  Oh no.

Or did they get an interview on ESPN Sportscenter, like The Uso’s?  Oh no.

Speaking of The Uso’s, the last time they saw them, they hurt them at Wrestlemania.  There is a new impression of The Uso’s.  When you say Us, we say OWWWW!!!


And their partner, Ryback?  Big E’s uncle used to say when you get booty, you make booty-ade.

6-man tag match.  Uso’s and Ryback Vs The New Day is now.

Ryback heard enough, and he went into the ring, causing the DQ and we see he and The Uso’s clean house on The New Day.

Undertaker Week begins immediately after tonight’s Raw, with JBL’s special to The Undertaker, airing on WWE Network.

We see Charlotte’s Divas Title win, back at Night of Champions in September.

Tonight, official Contract Signing between Charlotte and Paige.

HHH confronts Cesaro.

This is the biggest title, and Cesaro is as close as he has ever been.  He can do things nobody else can do, but this might be his time to grab that brass ring.  His time to reach up for ir.

HHH will sit and watch this match in Cesaro’s Section, maybe this is time for Cesaro to grab that brass ring.

Cesaro Vs Reigns is now.

Reigns wants to know if The Roman Empire is here tonight.  This has been a rough road to the title.  And Seth Rollins is hurt, and those plans were changed.  So HHH put a little spin on this.  He asked him to join The Authority, and receive a free ride to the title.  But he isn’t a sell-out.  So now he has to face people like Cesaro, Kevin Owens, and even Dean Ambrose.  But this road is going to get a little tougher, but it will end at Survivor Series.

Believe that.

Owens Vs Cesaro is now.

Reigns wins a good, but predictable match.  He hits a Superman Punch, and a spear, to advance to Survivor Series.

The Dudley Boyz, (Remember them) Vs The Ascension is now.

Team 3-D, match is done.

We see footage of Paige turning her back on Charlotte and Becky Lynch for the 20th time, but this time, she meant it.

Del Rio and Zeb are being interviewed by Renee Young, who makes her only appearance. HHH is trying to recruit them both, to join The Authority.

Del Rio Vs Kalisto is next.

Del Rio wins the match with a double stomp, pinning Kalisto, and advancing to Survivor Series.

Fatal 4-Way match when Paige became the Number One Contender.

Official contract signing is next.

Miz TV this Thursday night features the Final 4 participants.

Cole introduces Paige and Charlotte.

Charlotte will be with The Coach on tomorrow night’s Sportscenter.

Cole wants to know what happened to the friendship.

Paige corrects Michael that there isn’t any true friendship if you’re a Divas Champion, so she signs the contract.

Charlotte wants to know what happened to Paige. They came from the same background, she wanted to be like Paige. She was the sweet, naive Carolina girl. Paige was the British badass.

They watched their parents growing up on TV, who cared about this business almost as much as they cared about them.

When Charlotte’s little brother passed away, she was there for Charlotte. And that is the biggest reason she is here today, it was his dream.

Paige has been using Charlotte since day one. But Charlotte reminds her she is the Divas Champion, and Paige is not. But it’s not about the title, it’s about who has your back at the end of the day.

PCB was going to change this business, until Paige changed her selfish ways.

Paige wanted to be champion, and Charlotte tells her she isn’t even a champion. A champion is a role model, a little girl watching from the stands.

Charlotte tells her she may lose the title one day, but it won’t be at Survivor Series.

Paige calls Charlotte a naive little girl, that needs Daddy to come out and save her. So where is her Daddy, dropping a sorry elbow, and calling him an old fart.

Charlotte tells Paige they have fought in them, her whole family has fight, and Paige told her that her brother didn’t have much fight.

And now the fighting begins, throughout the ring. Charlotte didn’t even sign the contract, as we end the show here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Not sure how I feel about the ending, because there wasn’t much heat. Charlotte is a gifted athlete, who did alot in NXT, but they haven’t showcased that much since she came to WWE. Maybe that starts this Sunday? She seemed nervous, and there was something lost in that, it seemed forced.

Now if this was Sasha Vs Charlotte, I would understand, but WWE doesn’t even know who Sasha Banks is.

Roman Vs Cesaro should have closed this show, an incredible match, which leaves me to Survivor Series.

It has to end with Ambrose Vs Reigns, with one of them turning heel, right?

But what would you do? Send me your thoughts here. Survivor Series is in 6 days.

WWE Monday Night Raw 11/9/15…The WWE Tournament Has Begun

No intro again, we are live, on tape in Manchester, England.  We have breaking news, concerning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

We see the title, and here comes HHH.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.  Seth Rollins hurt his right knee this past Thursday, and is out 6-9 months and is vacating his WWE World Championship.

He wants to take a moment, and acknowledge a great champion.  Just take a moment to acknowledge Seth Rollins.

HHH and Stephanie thought long and hard about choosing the right man to be the WWE World Champion, and Seth went far and beyond doing that.  He was on his way of becoming one of the greatest WWE Champions of all-time.  But before that, Seth blew out his knee.  Tragic, but while Rollins is still the man, he is no longer the WWE World Champion.

So who will step up, and fill that void?

A few weeks ago, we determined the Number One Contender, and who would face Seth Rollins at Survivor Series.  He wants to bring that man out here now, Roman Reigns.

Reigns is looking at that championship.

HHH asks Roman it looks good.  Seth Rollins is no longer the WWE World Champion, and tonight there starts a tournament to determine the new WWE World Champion.

It seems unfair that Roman won the Fatal 4-Way for the right to face Rollins at Survivor Series.  It’s not that fair that shot is thrown away, and Reigns is thrown back at the bottom of the barrel.  But it doesn’t have to be like that,  Reigns could very easily fight the chance to face the winner of the tournament, to become the new WWE World Champion.  Before they selected Seth Rollins, they strongly considered choosing Reigns.  He has the charisma, the strength, the power, the know-how to be the man, but he lacks the one thing Rollins has shown, the willingness to do whatever it takes to be the WWE World Champion.

How does that feel Roman?  He faced so many men at the Royal Rumble, to face Brock Lesnar for the title at Wrestlemania 31.  Could he have beaten him?  We will never know.  He will never know, but Seth showed the willingness to do whatever he could to be the champion.  Does he have the willingness?  Does he want it?  Then all he has to do is be the man by being HHH’s man.

So Romans asks all he has to do to get what he earned is selling out?

HHH tells him selling out is just a term critics want to use.  They are going to boo Roman whatever he does.  HHH is offering him a chance to get everything he wants, he is offering Roman a chance at everything he always wanted, and he knows what is most important to Roman, his family.  He’s not just talking about his wife, and daughter, he is talking about his daughter’s daughter.

All he has to do is agreed to be his man, and Roman can everything he wants.

Roman tells HHH that he has fought for everything he has earned, and that continues even tonight.  He won’t shake HHH’s hand.

HHH thanks Reigns for reminding him why he chose Rollins, and not Reigns.  He goes all the way to the bottom of the ladder, and his first opponent in the tournament….

The Big Show.  That match is next.

Reigns wins with a Superman Punch, and a Spear.

Reigns move on to the Quarterfinals.

So, it’s a 16-man tournament.

We see footage from Survivor Series 1990, The Undertaker’s WWE debut, and 1997, when Kane debuted at No Mercy.

Tonight, The Wyatt Family will pay respect to The Undertaker and Kane.

We are in Manchester, England.  One of Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney is in attendance.

Kevin Owens is set for his first round match.

Owens tells us we are ready for change, but England fans are morons.  They think they are smarter than United States fans, but they aren’t.

Owens is winning the WWE Title tournament for himself, and not for the fans.

Owens faces Titus O’ Neil.

Titus tried, but Pop-Up Powerbomb is all she wrote.  The prizefighter advances to the WWE World Title tournament.

Renee Young is standing by with Paige.

She thanks Renee for recognizing her accomplishment, but now Renee can start accusing her of false things.

Renee brings up Paige is facing Becky Lynch, and Paige tells her she will take out the B tonight, and move on to face Baby Flair, at Survivor Series.

Footage of The Undertaker winning the WWE Title at Wrestlemania 13.  And Kane wins the World Heavyweight Title at Money in the Bank 2010.

Tonight, we hear from Bray Wyatt, who will pay respect to The Brothers of Destruction.

Becky Lynch Vs Paige is now.

Becky wins with a rolling of the tights, after Paige attempted the same thing.  Paige is irate over the loss, and attacks Becky from behind, putting her on the announce table, and gives her a PTO, but here comes Charlotte to save her friend.

We have 3 more first round matches tonight.  Cesaro faces Sheamus.  Dean Ambrose faces Tyler Breeze, and next, Dolph Ziggler Vs The Miz.

Next week is Undertaker Week, on WWE Network.

Tickets went on sale for Wrestlemania 32 this past weekend.  WWE threw a party in Dallas, and we see footage of that.

Wrestlemania is on April 3rd.  The build should start building shortly.

The Miz vs Ziggler, first round of the WWE World Title tournament is now.

Ziggler wins the match with a Superkick, he seemed to favor his leg.  Whether that plays out, who knows.

Ziggler advances to the Quarterfinals.

Ziggler faces the winner of Ambrose Vs Breeze, which will be shown later tonight.

More Undertaker moments, Survivor Series 2005, The Undertaker shows up to scare Randy Orton.  And Night of Champions 2012, Team Hell No defeats Kofi and Truth, to become the Tag Team Champions.



Good stuff.  Bray Wyatt pays respect, tonight.

Zeb Colter has the mic now.  He believes America and Mexico should join the two nations as one.  He would ask England to join if they weren’t so hated in the world.  They are groaning, because they don’t have leaders anymore.  MexiAmerica won’t be doing that.

They are not impressed with England, they are populated by haters.

HHH gave them an opportunity, and they agreed to it.  This Thursday night, Del Rio will run the table, and be the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and therefore, be the first MexiAmerican Champion.

Natalya Vs Naomi, is next.

Natalya wins the match rather quickly when Naomi runs into Tamina.  During the match, we have Sasha Banks chants, and Nattie leads that.  But Team BAD lay out Natalya at the end.

More footage from Survivor Series 2008, The Undertaker Vs Edge, inside Hell in a Cell.  And footage from Raw 2005, when Kane assaulted Edge at his wedding with Lita.

Bray Wyatt speaks, later tonight.

Sheamus Vs Cesaro is now.

During the break, King Barrett had a confrontation with Wayne Rooney.

Cesaro defeated Sheamus with a rollup, after Wayne Rooney distracted, and slapped Barrett, with Sheamus seeing the whole thing.

Cesaro Vs Reigns is set for next week in the Quarterfinals of the WWE World Title tournament.

Coming up next, Ambrose Vs Breeze in the first round of WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament.

Renee Young is with Breeze and Summer Rae.

With Ambrose coming out to the ring.

Breeze is making his WWE Raw debut, and after 4 wins, he could be the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  How does it feel?

Renee, the world is full of ugly people, you would know.  But never fear, Prince Pretty is about to make the world beautiful, and tonight, he will send Ambrose back to the garbage he belongs to.

Renee, look at this beautiful face, he is about to make this world beautiful again.

Breeze Vs Ambrose is now.

Ambrose wins the match with another rollup, a trend here on tonight’s show.

Next week, Ziggler Vs Ambrose in the Quarterfinals.

Wrestlemania 28, from 2012.  The Undertaker defeats HHH inside Hell in a Cell.  Royal Rumble 2001, when Kane eliminated 11 men.

Bray Wyatt speaks tonight.

This Thursday on Smackdown, Ryback Vs Kalisto.  Neville Vs King Barrett, and Del Rio Vs Stardust.

We are live in Manchester, England.  It’s a New Day for Manchester.

Kofi asks since there is a 16-man tournament to the WWE World Title, all 3 members of The New Day were left out?

This is outrageous.

Even though they have went through every obstacle, they still stand before us as WWE Tag Team Champions.

It wasn’t so long ago, that they lay out their beloved Dolph Ziggler.  And who can forget their childhood favorites, The Dudley Boyz.  And they laid out the “Golden Boy” John Cena.

This match is dedicated to their fallen captain, Seth Rollins.

6-man tag match of The New Day Vs Neville and The Uso’s.

New Day wins when Xavier pins Neville with his foot hooking on the ropes.

New Day Rocks!!

Footage of Hell in a Cell, when The Wyatt Family takes out The Undertaker, and the next night, when the took out Kane.

The Wyatts speak, next.

Here comes Bray Wyatt, with The Wyatt Family.

Change isn’t easy.  But it is inevitable.  It is a part of life, and how you deal with change will ultimately tell you who you are.  So tonight, we celebrate change.  Tonight, we celebrate the spirits of Kane and The Undertaker.

For over 2 decades, they have been the benchmark of power.  And they have reigned supreme.  So he wants us all to bow our heads, and pay respect to the legends, the ICONS that are Kane and The Undertaker.

Bray is laughing, calling us all fools.  We will no longer pay respect to these relics.  Because there are no passing of the torch, Bray took that torch, and burned their ashes.  Everything belongs to Bray now.  As their body goes deeper, Bray gets stronger, and they belong to Bray now.  He summons the thunder, and lightning, and the demons go by Bray Wyatt’s command.  There is no more salvation, all we have to do is know this will all end soon.  The apocalypse is here.

Follow the….

We see video of Kane and The Undertaker playing on the screen.

The Brothers of Destruction, together.

Thunder and lightning are booming, and Bray is scared.




Enter The Brothers of Destruction!!

The lights go out, come back, and the rest of The Wyatts are surrounding the ring.

Who answers the calls?

Brothers of Destruction take care of Rowan and Harper.  But Strowman clothesline them, but the brothers sit up.

They lay Bray out, and go after Strowman setting him over the table.  And now there is Bray Wyatt.

Double Chokeslam, which is still a beauty to see.

The show ends with The Brothers of Destruction, leaving together, with The Wyatts laid out.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I want to say I did not read any spoilers, so yeah for me.  But it’s truly sad Seth Rollins’ title run has ended the way it did.  He will be back, but I have to say, this might be the perfect way for him to turn face, when he comes back.  We will see.

The seeds have been planted too, with whether we see Reigns getting screwed, or he does indeed turn heel, and join The Authority.  The time might be now for him to turn, because HHH will surely teach him how to be an effective heel.

I loved The Brothers of Destruction reunion, and we will see a traditional Survivor Series match, with the way it looks.  But who joins The Brothers Kane and Taker?

Possibly The Dudleys?  They have nothing to do now, it would make sense.

Overall, a good show again that focused on the WWE World Title.  Next week, the tournament will continue, and we should see more push to Survivor Series.

Send me your thoughts here.

WWE Monday Night Raw 11/2/15…Survivor Series Showdown

We are live in Denver, Colorado.  No beginning intro, again and we kick it off with Roman Reigns heading to the ring.

Roman is proud to be here in Denver, Colorado.  He is also proud to be number one contender, and next WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

But he wants to talk about the current WWE World Champion.  He is good, damn good in the ring.  But he is also good at something else….brown-nosing, lying, and kissing The Authority’s ass.  But he has kept his title since Wrestlemania, but he is looking forward to being the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Believe that.

Enter the champ.

Roman wants Seth to BELIEVE he is going to do something nobody else has done, and beat Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Reigns paid Rollins a comment?  Well, let Rollins return the favor.  Reigns is good too, he chose him to be a part of The Shield, and he would not have done that otherwise.  Reigns has had a very good year.  He went toe to toe against “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar, at Wrestlemania.

But he didn’t win the match, did he?

Rollins made history, he cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase, and became WWE World Champion, at Wrestlemania.

The people will always remember Seth for that, while they remember Reigns carrying Seth’s bags.

How about you step into the ring, like a man, and find out who will carry one whose bag.

Here comes Rollins, and here comes The Authority.

Who wants to see Reigns Vs Rollins?  Who wants to see a WWE World Title match?  Well, you’re going to get it, Stephanie tells us, just not tonight.

The match will take place at the 29th annual Survivor Series.

HHH offers a suggestion we have a 5-on-5 traditional elimination match.  Roman Reigns will be a captain, choosing his team, against Seth Rollins’ team.  Choose wisely Roman, your future might depend on it.

Fatal 4-way match tonight to determine Number one contender to Charlotte’s Divas Title.  Paige Vs Brie Bella Vs Becky Lynch Vs Sasha Banks.

We also will hear from “The Eater of Words” Bray Wyatt.  But next, it’s Ziggler Vs Owens.

Kevin Owens wins the match after Ziggler is distracted by Tyler Breeze, and Owens hits a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Ziggler fights back, after Breeze takes the selfie stick with him, but Tyler gets the final say with a Beauty Shot.

Survivor Series Rewind, from 1987.  Savage, Steamboat, and Jake “The Snake” Roberts are the survivors of their team.

Tonight, 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series match.  Team Rollins Vs Team Reigns.

Kevin Owens is walking backstage, and is greeted by Seth Rollins.

Kevin Owens wants to know where this is going.

Wrestlemania is right around the corner, and Rollins doesn’t think it gets any better than Champion Vs Champion, Rollins Vs Owens.

Owens likes the sound of that, and Rollins wants to know if he likes the sound of Owens being a part of Team Rollins.

Owens likes the Mania match better, but he owes him one, so he’s in.

Last Monday, Paige turned her back on Charlotte and Becky, again.

Tonight, Fatal 4-Way match where the winner faces Charlotte, at Survivor Series.

Renee Young is with Becky Lynch.

Last week was an eye opener for Becky.  She can’t wait to get in the ring with that backstabber, and she is interrupted by Brie.

Brie tells her she will face Charlotte, so nobody will worry about Charlotte’s “Wacky sidekick”, and Becky mentioned this coming from “Nikki Bella’s doormat”.

Cesaro is in action, next.

Cesaro defeats The Miz and we had another Stardust and Ascension sighting.  Stardust was watching Cesaro, when Cesaro made The Miz tap out to The Sharpshooter.

“The Eater of Worlds” Bray Wyatt is next.

The Wyatts in front of his “fireflies” come to the ring.

Tonight is a special night, but tonight, Bray wants to know if everyone in this building, everyone watching this around the world, Bray wanted to give us something truly special.  We have bared witness of Bray carrying out the rotted carcass of The Undertaker.  And we have bared witness of watching he and his brothers carrying out the scorched body of Kane.

But that’s the thing, a body is in the long run completely useless.  But a soul lives forever.

Unless of course, that soul is consumed by a higher power.

And Bray has become that higher power.  And like he says, he wanted to give us something tonight we would never forget.  So tonight, allow Bray to enlighten us that Bray, and his brothers have harnessed that power of The Undertaker, and The “Demon” Kane.

That power feels good, and it has become inconceivable, and tonight, Bray summons the thunder.

We get thunder.

And now he summons the lightning.  And he summons the darkness, as he is Bray Wyatt, The Eater of Worlds.

And now he has the power to burn our power straight to hell.

More pyro is involved here.  Thunder, lightning strikes vengeance.

Video is being shown of Brothers of Destruction.

Bray is laughing, and says follow the buzzards.

Tonight, Fatal 4-Way to determine who faces Charlotte at Survivor Series.

Also tonight, Traditional Survivor Series match, Team Rollins Vs Team Reigns.

But now, it’s The Lucha Dragons Vs King Barrett and Sheamus.

Lucha Dragons picks up the upset win, when Kalisto, pinning Barrett a Salida del Soi.

Zeb is joined with Jack Swagger.

Swagger wants to know where Zeb stands with Swagger.

Del Rio interrupts this, and he tells Jack to stay away from Zeb.

Trying to join two great countries as one.

Del Rio wins with the kick to the head.  Truth tried, but Del Rio prevailed.

Orton was the sole survivor, for Team Smackdown.

Tonight, Traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series match.  Team Rollins Vs Team Rollins.

But they still need one more.

Magic unicorn is in full effect.

Enter Xavier Woods.

New Day is reunited, and together.  They can’t lose.

Rollins welcomes them officially, and Xavier wants to play a song for him.

Team Rollins.

Seth likes it.

Sasha is getting ready for her match, when Jo-Jo interviews her.

Is there any anxiety heading into this match.  There is a lot of pressure.

Pressure?  Excuse you, first of all, Sasha always delivers.  Of course the fans want Sasha.  Becky and Charlotte will learn that “The Boss” is taking over.

Fatal 4-Way for the Number One Contender to the Divas Title, is now.

Becky Lynch Vs Sasha Banks Vs Brie Bella Vs Paige is now.

Paige wins with a RamPaige, pinning Becky Lynch.

Byron Saxton wants some words from Paige. She calls the other 3 women losers, and we are losers for cheering them on. In 3 weeks, at Survivor Series, we will see Charlotte is a loser, because Denver, this is Paige’s house and she is getting her Divas Title back.

Survivor Series Rewind, from last year’s Survivor Series when Dolph Ziggler was the sole survivor. Interesting though, no clip of Sting making his debut.

And oh yeah, Ziggler got “fired” a few weeks after.

Our main event, Team Reigns Vs Team Rollins, traditional Survivor Series match is next.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw. Paige becoming the Number One Contender to the Divas Title.

Renee Young is with Charlotte.

It’s official, at Survivor Series it’s Charlotte Vs Paige.

Paige will do whatever she can to win, as will Charlotte. Last week wasn’t a factor for her. She continues to say she is a “Flair baby girl”. Anytime people say that, she gets that much stronger, and works harder to prove everyone wrong. Paige will learn the hard way, she earned the title.

New Day is here to tell us to feel the power. And here they come.

Traditional Survivor Series match. New Day, Kevin Owens, and Seth Rollins.

Who better, as Xavier tells us to be a part of 5-on-5 Survivor Series match than New Day?

Xavier Woods survives the disgusting display by them Dudley Boyz.

What is New Day’s favorite band? Survivor.

What is New Day’s favorite TV show? Survivor.

What is New Day’s favorite Destiny’s Child song? Survivor.

What is New Day’s favorite book? Lone Survivor.

What is New Day’s favorite movie? The Last Unicorn, but actually Lone Survivor.

Team Reigns Vs Team Rollins is next.

Oh yea, who is a part of Team Reigns?

Roman Reigns.

The Uso’s.


Dean Ambrose.

No Dudleys, but here we go.

Xavier Woods is eliminated, thanks to a Uso Splash.

4-on-3 Team Reigns.

Pop-Up Powerbomb by Owens, pinning Jimmy Uso.

It’s now 3-on-3.

Big E is done with Shellshock, being pinned by Ryback.

And just like that, Ryback is done with a Pedigree by Rollins.

It’s now a tag team match. Owens and Rollins Vs Reigns and Ambrose.

Dirty Deeds, Owens is done after some miscommunication between he and Rollins.

It’s now The Shield left in the ring.

Rollins swings a chair, and is eliminated by DQ.

Reigns and Ambrose are the sole survivors.

Rollins takes out Ambrose, brings a chair to the ring, but Reigns hits a Superman Punch, and Rollins runs.

Ambrose and Reigns are in the ring, as the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

For the second straight week, we have had a good show setting up the main event for Survivor Series.

Just a few questions though….

  1. Where are The Dudleys?

  2. No Kane or Taker, does that mean Survivor Series, celebrating 25 years of The Undertaker, he won’t be there? Or will he appear on the show, challenging The Wyatts to a match at a later time?

Divas match was very good, and with a bit more talk involved, Paige Vs Charlotte can be a very good match.

What were your thoughts on tonight’s show? Let me know.

WWE Monday Night Raw 10/26/15…From The Depths Of Hell

Tonight, we find out what takes place, after last night’s epic Hell in a Cell.  We are live in San Diego, and we kick the show off with The Authority.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.  We see the carnage that unfolded at last night’s Hell in a Cell between The Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar.

Stephanie tells us we witnessed battles of epic proportions.  Feuds were ended, and settled.

HHH tells right from the get go, Alberto Del Rio kicked things off becoming the new United States Champion.  And we witnessed the future of WWE last night.

And that includes the man who was victorious last night, he is simply known as “The Man”, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins.

Seth Rollins showed why he is one of the biggest superstars.  They lined him up against challenger after challenger.  Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Sting, the list goes on and on, and he stepped up and beat every single one of them.

Seth beat Kane, and he made The Authority better.  He made WWE better, and HHH is here to say they are proud of him.

And like a giddy son, he hugs both of them.

Seth is speechless, he did what he told us he would do, demonize Kane, take him out of the picture.  He wouldn’t be here, if it wasn’t for The Authority.

Stephanie proclaims he is one of the greatest superstars of his generation, and he is on his way to the WWE Hall of Fame.  But he left them in a bad spot.

He has cleaned up the challengers, so they have to dig deep to earn a shot at the WWE Championship.  And we will do that.

The winners of last night’s WWE Hell in a Cell will square off against each other, and then move on to wrestle a Fatal 4-Way, and the winner will be saying they lost to Seth Rollins.

Here comes Roman Reigns.

Reigns isn’t impressed by this.

After tonight, Rollins is looking at the Number One Contender, and he is taking that championship.  Believe that.

Stephanie says let the games begin.

Who will Reigns face next?  We find out.

Reigns is facing Kofi.

The biggest difference between Roman Reigns and The New Day, is New Day are champions, and Roman is not.

They are putting things in their places.

The Dudleys, in the past.

Their fellow unicorn, Xavier Woods, he is in their heart.

Their opponents….in the grave.  Because New Day rocks.

The Miz is backstage, showing us WWE 2K16’s new Stone Cold mode.  The game comes out tomorrow.

Last night, at Hell in a Cell, John Cena issues his John Cena US Title Open Challenge.  It was the returning Alberto Del Rio, who pinned him to become the new United States Champion.

Later tonight, Del Rio faces Neville.  Winner advances to Fatal 4-Way match.  Also Dolph Ziggler Vs Big E., and Kevin Owens Vs Cesaro.

Cesaro Vs Owens is now.  Be prepared to be entertained.

Owens wins the match with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.  A very fun match here, and now Owens advances to Fatal 4-Way match tonight.

Paige is on the phone.  Becky and Charlotte are not amused.

Everyone wants a piece of Paige, since her Conan O’ Brien show.

She tells Charlotte she deserves to be Divas Champion, and shakes hands with her.  Charlotte warns Paige if she found out she attacked Natalya, she will make her pay.  Paige assures her she didn’t do it.

Charlotte asks Becky if she will tag with them, and she agrees.  Team PCB is back together again, they face Team Bella tonight.

Team Bella Vs Team PCB at the top of hour 2, now.

Team Bella wins the match with Nikki pinning Becky with a Rack Attack.

Charlotte checks on Becky, and Paige attacks both women.

Nails 2 RamPaige’s on both, and hits a PTO on Charlotte.

WWE 2K16 comes out tomorrow, and we see a preview of it.

Next, To Hell and Back.  The final battle between The Phenom Vs The Beast.

A week from this Friday, tickets go on sale for Wrestlemania 32.

Hell in a Cell, Brock Lesnar Vs The Undertaker.

The Wyatt Family crashed the party after the match.

Why Bray, why?  We hear from them, tonight.

Renee Young is with Zeb Colter and Alberto Del Rio.

Colter brings up how a great Mexican and a Real American can get along.  Just go by the song “Imagine” by John Lennon.  They are here to form a new nation, called Mex-America.  They are proud to be Mex-Americans.

Del Rio faces Neville.

He won’t let an “immigrant” to deny his chance to become once again WWE World Champion.

Viva Mexico.

Neville Vs Del Rio is now.

Del Rio wins with a variation of a foot stomp, with Neville perched around the ropes.

3 spots are filled now, and the 4th spot is coming up.

The Mex-Americans are standing with pride.

Next, 6-man tag match of The Dudleys and Ryback Vs Barrett, Sheamus, and Rusev.

Barrett, Rusev, and Sheamus wins when Barrett rolls up Bubba Ray with the tights.

Bray Wyatt speaks, next.

The lights go out, Bray is in the ring.

For 25 years, The Undertaker has walked among the darkness, and the light.  He had no equal.  They all feared him.  Grown men trembled at just the sound of his name.  But last night, the apocalypse sealed his fate.  They wheeled out the soul of The Undertaker.  Can you feel it?  That horrible, wicked feeling is here.  Last night was war.  Horsemen feel war.  He wants to make this point clear.  Roman Reigns, one day, they will dance again, but not until he is truly victimized.  Last night, was the beginning of Bray Wyatt’s resurrection.  And when you get that feeling, it soothes you, it becomes you.  You become addicted.  He is tasting The Undertaker, and he needs more.  He won’t stop until there is no more Undertaker.  Until there are ashes, and he won’t stop until he is sitting at his throne, where he belongs.

Right now, somewhere, Undertaker’s soul is being ripped to sheds.  One by one, piece by piece.  So he wants everyone to do one thing, to bow your heads.  Everyone needs to place their hand on the TV screen, and pay respect to the man who has lost his soul, to Bray.

Rest in piece, Phenom.

Enter Kane.

Kane’s brother, “Demon” Kane is here for revenge.

Lights go out, comes back on, and the entire Wyatt Family surround the ring.

Kane fights back, but the odds are stacked against him.  And now the mauling begins, just like last night.

Now, they carry out “Demon” Kane, just like last night with The Undertaker.

The Brothers of Destruction are being carried out by The Wyatt Family.

We come back and see The Wyatts drag Kane out to Hell.

Big E. Vs Ziggler is now.

Tyler Breeze makes his Raw debut.

Ziggler wins the match with a Zig Zag, so Tyler Breeze does nothing.

Fatal 4-Way match is set.  Reigns Vs Owens Vs Del Rio Vs Ziggler.

A good match here sets up what should be a very good main event.

Ambrose is giving Reigns a pep talk.

It’s right in front of you.  So grab it, and take it.

Is Ambrose turning heel?

The entire WWE locker room is in the ring to #RiseAboveCancer.

The Miz is still playing WWE 2K16.

And “Stone Cold” shows up, he tells The Miz to promote the game.

Hell Yeah!!

Main event time, with Reigns Vs Del Rio Vs Owens Vs Ziggler.

Seth Rollins joins the announce table.

Roman Reigns defeated Kevin Owens with a wicked spear, and is now the new Number One Contender.  He will face Rollins at Survivor Series.

Reigns and Rollins go face to face now, with the crowd behind Reigns.

The heat Seth got just by picking up his title is unreal.  These two will have a great match.

The show ends here,

Kevin’s Thoughts:

One of the best shows of the year.  They made all of the single matches feel important just to get to this Fatal 4-Way match.  And Reigns Vs Rollins will be a good match.

I also loved seeing the Wyatts attack Kane, and it seems like we will get to see The Brothers of Destruction Vs The Wyatts at some point.  I have no issue with that.

So Paige turned on her friends for the 1,800th time.  Let’s keep it as is it is, please.

Everything else just clicked.  I loved it.  What were your thoughts?  Send them to me here.

WWE Hell In A Cell 10/25/15

Tonight, for the final time, we will see Brock Lesnar face “The Phenom” Undertaker, inside Hell in a Cell.  We will also see Roman Reigns Vs Bray Wyatt, for the final time inside Hell in a Cell.  Seth Rollins puts his WWE World Heavyweight Title against “Demon” Kane.

We are 45 minutes away from the Kick-off show, which will give us a 6-man tag.

Keep checking here throughout the night, as we go through Hell in a Cell.

We are live in Los Angeles, with Renee Young welcoming us to the Kick-off show.  The panel includes Booker T, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves.

Tom Phillips is in the Social Media Lounge.  His guest tonight is The Dudley Boyz.  We can ask questions, and use the hashtag #GetTheTitles to ask a question.

Tonight, the final meeting with Brock Lesnar Vs The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell.

Also, inside a Hell in a Cell, we will see Roman Reigns Vs Bray Wyatt, and we see footage of this.

They show us Bray Wyatt’s exclusive interview with Michael Cole.  Very interesting interview.

This could be a match that steals the show.

John Cena’s United States Title Open Challenge is tonight.

Jo-Jo is standing by with John Cena.

For the first time, John Cena United States Title Open Challenge, and Cena is ready to break it down now.

We are kicking the show off tonight with history.  You want some, come get some.

Tonight, Kevin Owens Vs Ryback for the IC Title.

We hear an interview from Owens earlier today.

Owens runs down the Lakers, and Magic Johnson being a “false idol”, just like Ryback.

Another rematch, see the theme we are going here?

Charlotte Vs Nikki Bella, for the Divas Title.

Nobody is allowed at ringside for this match.

“Demon” Kane Vs Seth Rollins is being shown now.

Our kick-off match is up next.  Ziggler, Neville, and Cesaro Vs Barrett, Sheamus, and Rusev.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler handle their part.

Ziggler, Neville, and Cesaro win when Cesaro gives Barrett a Cesaro Swing, and Neville hits a Red Arrow.

Fun match here, and we saw Stardust and The Ascension sit in the “Stardust Section”, which is funny.

Tom Phillips and The Dudleys join us.

They don’t feel bad for nailing Xavier Woods through a table.

Now, with Xavier not in the picture, they shouldn’t be DQ’d.  The New Day has to put their Tag Titles straight up against the most decorated team in history.

What is their favorite moment as a team?  Their return to Brooklyn.

They will turn tonight into their new favorite moment, becoming a 10-time Tag Team Champion.

The final chapter, Lesnar Vs Taker will be shown in-depth, next.

Lesnar Vs Taker video is showing, up next, the PPV will begin.  I am ready.

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

Hell in a Cell begins now, and kicks off with the John Cena United States Title Open Challenge.

Cena is ready to find out.  Los Angeles is the place to be.  John Cena is still the man to beat.  And a special Hell in a Cell live, only on WWE Network United States Title open challenge starts now.  You want some, come get some.

Here comes Zeb Colter?

You know John Cena, if that is your real name.  Let’s be honest, some people like you, and some do not.  That is what we call a polarizing background.  And he thinks it’s time for everyone from every background to come together.  And he thinks it’s time for Cena to lose that title, so this person can do more with it.  Let’s introduce Cena to…..

Alberto Del Rio.

Del Rio wins the US Championship when he gave Cena a kick to the head.  Viva Del Rio!!

Colter stuck his hand, and Del Rio shook it.

Cena appears in a daze.

The Authority seem impressed, and Rollins told them that was a moment.  Not the same kind of moment Rollins won US Title to be the WWE World Champ and US Champ at the same time.

Here comes “Corporate” Kane to assure The Authority he has learned from his lessons.  Rollins doesn’t buy any of it.  HHH tells Kane they are in a private meeting, and he doesn’t need to be involved.  Rollins tells him he won’t be needed tomorrow night either, when he’s out of a job.

Kane has one thing to say then….good luck.

Wyatt Vs Reigns, inside Hell in a Cell is now.

Reigns wins a brutal, and fun match by hitting a spear on Wyatt.  We had 4 tables break, chairs galore, and kendo sticks.  The ending being Wyatt setting up the ring buckles with kendo sticks, and Reigns turns the corner, to hit Wyatt with one, and put him through a corner with the other.

Such a fun match here, and they are trying to steal the show.  I think they did.

They are setting up Survivor Series as an event where wen salute Undertaker.  25 years he started, and now we rise for him.

Celebrities are here tonight, and our next match is for the Tag Team Titles.  The Dudley Boyz Vs The New Day.

Brother Xavier isn’t here, so we have an empty trombone.  It’s a sad day, as sad as the Lakers have become.

All trombonist are sad.

So in honor of the percussion unit, Kofi promises to play the bongo drums on Bubba Ray’s belly.  And Big E. promises to plat the bass drum on Devon’s belly, because No Day Rocks.

Here come them damn Dudleys.

Kofi used an Eddie Guerrero move, throwing the trombone at Bubba, and then fall down.  But the ref didn’t ring the bell.  Big E. nailed Bubba with a trombone, Kofi hits Trouble In Paradise, and New Day retain their titles.

Charlotte Vs Nikki Bella is now.

Charlotte wins the match by making Nikki tap out to the Figure Eight.

Nikki was taunting her about facing her, but the champ prevailed.

Paige and Becky come out to celebrate with her.

Dean Ambrose celebrates Reigns victory, and Dean reminds him about what is next.  Roman suggests they talk about that tomorrow.

More celebrities at The Staples Center.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship is on the line now.  “Demon” Kane Vs Seth Rollins.

Seth retains the title with a Pedigree.

So “Corporate” Kane is out of work, it seems.

Hell in a Cell panel are out here now.  “Corporate” Kane is no more.

Earlier tonight in the Kick-Off match, Cesaro, Ziggler, and Neville win their match, over Barrett, Sheamus, and Rusev.

Feed Me More!!

Ryback Vs Kevin Owens for the IC Title is up now.

Owens wins with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

This felt like a “bathroom break” match.

Next up, Lesnar Vs Taker, inside Hell in a Cell.

Earlier tonight, John Cena lost the United States Title to the returning Alberto Del Rio.

Brock Vs Taker, our main event, for the final time inside Hell in a Cell.

Brock hits an F-5 to defeat The Undertaker in what was a classic fight.  There was blood, there was ring being torn, there was a low blow by Brock, and a F-5 on the open board that pinned The DEADMAN.

Undertaker looks like he is giving Brock his respect at the end there, with a nod of the finger, and then laid right back down.  Lesnar fell down, and stumbled back up.

This had a big-match feel.

Taker sat up, only like he could.  An incredible man, and an incredible career.

Thank You Taker!!

The crowd and the announcers are giving him a standing ovation.

And he is about to give us a bow, but here come The Wyatt Family.

Oh boy, this is when The Brothers of Destruction reunite, right?

All 4 men surround the ring, Taker is ready for them.

All 4 men beat down Taker, with Bray mocking him.  They take his body and head out of ringside, carrying him on a cross.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Such a fun show here that sets the tone for many things.  One way or the other, Undertaker is wrapping up his career, and this could be a way for Taker to pave the way for Bray to be the next “Phenom”.

Not a bad match here, and every one of them felt like storylines are wrapping up, and the ending of tonight’s show was the beginning of a new storyline.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.  I will talk to you tomorrow night, on Raw.

WWE Monday Night Raw 10/19/15…The Road To Hell

Tonight, Raw is in D-Town, the home city of Wrestlemania 32.  So will the build begin?  A star-studded show tonight, including the return of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, who hasn’t been on Raw in 4 years.

Raw is now.

We are live in Dallas, and the glass breaks to kick the show off.

It’s indeed “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

Austin started his career in 1989, back in the Sportatortum in Dallas, Texas.  When they built AllState Arena, they brought in The Rock and Austin to welcome the place.

If you’re ready for Raw, give me a Hell Yeah.  If you’re ready for Wrestlemania, give me a Hell Yeah.

After tonight’s Raw, stay tuned for his podcast on The WWE Network, with his guest being “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar.

But now, he is going to introduce a man he highly respects in the ring.  A man who does what he says, and this Sunday will meet Brock Lesnar for the final time, The Undertaker.

Brock Lesnar, we have one last battle to fight.  And listen when he says this son, the depths of hell will look like the gates to heaven compared to where he will take Brock this Sunday, at Hell in a Cell.


Ladies and Deadman, my name is Paul Heyman.  And I am the advocate of the beast who shall be unleashed this Sunday, inside Hell in a Cell….BROCK LESNAR!!

My client and I were just talking how fitting this is.  Both men enter Hell in a Cell consumed with revenge.  His client, Brock Lesnar wants to avenge that tainted, disgusting loss he suffered at the hands of The Undertaker.

But Taker doesn’t want to just avenge, he lusts for Brock, because he can’t get over his client defeated him at Wrestlemania.  This Sunday, his client Brock Lesnar will take that avenge, and Taker will know that tainted feeling that he has that legacy of conquering everyone, but Brock Lesnar.

This is what Paul has wrong, because when you take everything from a man, then that man ends up fighting with nothing to lose.

Bring it on, son.  Taker is ready.

And here comes Lesnar.

This is not the time, Taker is in Brock’s head.  And with that, Brock walks away, and Heyman tells him now he is in Taker’s head.

They will cross paths 6 days from now.

Next, a big 6-man tag match of Cena and The Dudleys Vs The New Day.

This Sunday at Hell in a Cell….John Cena’s US Title Open Challenge will be in effect.  Who takes the challenge?

Our match is up now.

Crowd tells us New Day sucks, but they disagree.

You might as well call them unicorns, because they have brought magic back to WWE.

You know what they say about Texas?  They say everything in Texas is booty.  Dez Bryant’s ankle is booty.

Tony Romo’s collar-bone is booty, and Kofi reminds them what they did a few weeks ago to them, they kicked their….

This is a PG show, Kofi.

Yeah, but we are The New Day.  We can do whatever we want, kick your ass.

Big tag match is now.

Woods picks up a quick run, rolling up Devon with the pants, when action was going on outside.

Cena and The Dudleys have had enough, and take care of them.

Cena gives Xavier an AA.

And now, it’s time for Devon to get the table.

And Xavier goes through another table.

Breaking news, Randy Orton never made the tour dates, and isn’t here on Raw.  He is injured, so who will Ambrose team with at Hell in a Cell?

Ambrose is talking with Dean Malenko and Fit Finlay.

We hear from “The Lunatic Fringe”, next.

Renee Young is with Dean Ambrose.

People want to talk about The Wyatts getting after Orton, it’s happened before, so who is to say it didn’t happen here.  He wants The Wyatts tonight.

Nikki and Alicia Fox will face Sasha and Naomi.

Nikki wins with a Rack Attack, pins Naomi.

Switching gears.

Footage from last Monday when “Demon” Kane defeated Rollins in a Lumberjack Match.

“Corporate” Kane is suspended for tonight’s show.

Shawn Michaels is with HHH, Shawn joins us next.

“The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michales comes to the ring.

Hell in a Cell is clearly upon us.  Shawn has been in a cage, and he has been in a cell.  But both pale in comparison to being inside Hell in a Cell.

Many years ago, Shawn was in the first ever Hell in a Cell.  He can’t remember who he was in the ring with.  Oh yeah, The Undertaker.

18 years later this Sunday, The Undertaker will step inside Hell in a Cell, and he will do it against Brock Lesnar.

But there will be another Hell in a Cell.  After weeks of ridicule, Roman Reigns will look to get redemption from Bray Wyatt.  Those two matches will tear the house down.

Enter the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins.

Crowd wants one more match, and that would be good.

Seth wants to know what Shawn is doing out here.  He knows what he was supposed to do, he was supposed to introduce “The Man”.  He was supposed to start the second hour, introducing Seth Rollins.

Shawn wanted to have a little bit of fun with these fans.  And he ended that fun when Rollins came out.

But the orders didn’t come from Seth, it came from his best friend, HHH.

He’s out here talking about Brock Vs Taker, that’s fine.  But he wants to talk about Reigns?  He needs to talk about the man who will steal the show this Sunday.  The man who people call “HBK Version 2”, except this new version is better.

What bothers Shawn is people is fine being “the next Shawn Michaels”.  Shawn would never be up for that.  Instead, he wanted to be the greatest wrestler that ever lived.  But Seth shouldn’t worry about Shawn, he needs to focus on Kane, because he is going to get ya.

Shawn is jealous of Seth, because Seth had a moment at Wrestlemania that eclipsed anything Shawn had ever done.  But he’s done with Shawn, and as far as Kane goes, he will take care of “The Demon” and he will look up at the lights, like everyone else has done.  So hit his music.

No music, and Shawn brings up the one bad thing about being version 2 is they never play his music when he asks for it.  But Seth isn’t done, he has a match against Ryback.

Now hit his music.

Rollins Vs Ryback is next.

Rollins wins with a Pedigree, just like that.

Tonight, Ambrose faces Harper and Strowman in a 2-on-1 Handicap match.

Earlier tonight, The Undertaker had a message for Brock Lesnar.

Rusev is engaged to Lana, and we saw that segment last week with Summer Rae.

Another 6-man tag match, because the world needs more of that.

Ziggler, Cesaro, and Neville Vs King Barrett, Sheamus, and Rusev.

Barrett, Sheamus, and Rusev win the match when Sheamus gives Ziggler a Brogue Kick on the outside, and Barrett pins Ziggy.

A good match here.

Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair are discussing things.  Flair is up next.

Miz TV is this Thursday night on Smackdown, with Ziggler and Summer Rae.

WOOOOOOO, Ric Flair is in the ring.

Dallas, Texas….And The Nature Boy….WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Alot of history here, The Von Erichs, The Freebirds, WOOOOOOO!!!!

But Wrestlemania is right around the corner.  He just found out that Dean Ambrose will team up with his main man, Roman Reigns, now.


The Brothers Shield Vs The Wyatts.

Right when Reigns has the mic, we are interrupted by The Wyatts.

Reigns thanks Naitch, and now the three of them and one of them.

He does something different, he gets two chairs.  One is for him, and one is for Wyatt.

Erick Rowan is back, it seems.

Reigns is calling Bray Wyatt out in the middle of Dallas, Texas/

Here he comes.

Reigns wants to talk about Bray.  He is a bully.  He likes to pick on people, and he digs on that.  He digs power by fear.  He surrounds himself with mountains, because he is scared of being alone.  He sees fear in his eyes.  Before he calls them out, to kick his ass let’s talk about Sunday.

They can’t get in, and he can’t get out.  He should be very afraid of him.

And now the two men fight, and here comes backup.

Later tonight, Reigns and Ambrose Vs The Wyatt Family.

The Authority are watching what just happened.

Shawn comes in to say hi.

HHH says Ambrose and Reigns should have a partner.  HBK suggests Seth should be their partner.  This is like them taking care of a child.  How many times did HHH work multiple times?

Rollins doesn’t like this, and he said he will be in the ring with 5 world-class athletes, so if they need a partner, they have one.

For one night, The Shield reunites?

It’s now Charlotte Vs Brie Bella.

Charlotte makes Brie tap out to Figure Eight.

This Sunday, Nikki Vs Charlotte for the Divas Title.

Paige was watching backstage, and Renee Young interrupts.

Was Paige the one who attacked Natalya backstage before Smackdown.  Paige denies, and Renee isn’t buying it.

It could be anyone who doesn’t like the divas division, it could be anyone, past or present divas.  Renee questions her more, and Paige tells her she isn’t Erin Andrews, and she sure isn’t as pretty, so stay out of her business.

Ambrose, Reigns, and Rollins Vs The Wyatt Family tonight.

Kevin Owens Vs Mark Henry is now.

Owens finds a way to win with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Here comes “The Big Guy” wanting some, and Owens leaves.

But Henry throws him back into the ring, so Ryback can come get him some.

Ryback hits a Powerbomb.

Feed Me More!!

Renee Young is standing by with Seth Rollins.  Seth says this is not a Shield reunion.  This is a showcase for Seth to show Shawn Michaels and HHH he is everything he says he is….The Man.  And if Reigns and Ambrose want to rehash the past, then he will have to lay them out, like the last time.

The Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar video now.

6-Man Tag Match tonight of The Wyatt Family Vs The Shield.

Or is it?

The match ends with a DQ, when Rollins walks out with a “leg injury”, and Ambrose nails Strowman with a Kendo Stick to get DQ’d.

The show ends with Reigns and Ambrose standing tall.  No Kane rundown, no Orton rundown, not even a Harper sighting.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The show did its thing, certainly better than any show we have seen in a month.  The legends came in, did their thing, promoted the PPV.  I loved the tease of The Shield reuniting, it’s going to be real at some point.

It was weird to not see Kane, come in, even in “Demon” form since “Corporate” Kane was the one who was suspended, and not “Demon” Kane.  But we know he will face Seth in the ring, this Sunday.

I truly want to see Undertaker Vs Lesnar one more time.  I always liked their feud, even in 2002.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 10/5/15…Brock Lesnar’s Go To Hell Tour Continues

We are live in the TD Gardens of Boston, Mass.  Tonight, Raw is now.

We see the carnage Seth Rollins gave “Corporate” Kane last week, that gave us The “Demon” Kane.

Tonight, we will see The Dudley Boyz Vs Seth Rollins and The Big Show.

Here Comes The Pain!!

14,180 screaming fans are chanting Suplex City.

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman.  And I am the advocate for the slayer of the giant, the conqueror of the Streak.  And tonight, The Beast of Boston, Brock Lesnar!!

Now that we have kicked off the Go To Hell Tour, by slaying a 450 pound Giant, all focus goes to Hell in a Cell.

People believe that The Undertaker will never get revenge for what Brock did to The Streak.  Because ever since November 1990, people have been victimized and revenged by The Undertaker when they do wrong by him, but he has to come to the realization that Brock Lesnar won’t be stopped.  What he calls The Devil’s Playground, Brock calls Hell in a Cell the “Layer of The Beast”.

Let me spell this out to you, The Undertaker calls Hell in a Cell his match.  His match?  Heyman’s ass.  Just like Undertaker called Wrestlemania his match, until he ran into Brock Lesnar.

We see footage of that historic moment.


One week in the hospital.  One year on the shelf, and countless, endless, sleepless nights.  Doing all of his evil soul-searching, and conspiring, plotting his evil revenge.  And when he had his chance for that revenge, what happened?  He went face to face with Brock Lesnar.  And what did he realize?  He isn’t dead enough to get revenge on Brock Lesnar.

Footage from Summerslam.

Heyman never recalls Brock Lesnar using a low blow to defeat The Undertaker.  That is what Taker did.  And just like his client will tell “Stone Cold” Steve Austin on October 19th, he will say this.  The Undertaker will have to do uncertain circumstances, because this is the final time Lesnar will face Taker.  The winner walks out the winner of The Taker Vs Lesnar rivalry will walk out, and the loser will not.  That is a spoiler, his conqueror, and beast will find a way to end this feud, his client, Brock Lesnar.

Enter The Giant.

Suplex City, Brock took Big Show to Suplex City at Madison Square Garden.  The Beast Vs The Giant.  He was this close of wiping that smile away from Brock.  Because he is the bigger man, he will admit, Brock is the man.  He will put out his hand and say Brock is the man.

Brock just smiles, and walks away.

It must be nice to be arrogant as Brock.  He hopes he loses to The Undertaker, again.

Now this brings Brock back into the ring.

Suplex City, bitch.

F-5 to The Giant.

We are 3 weeks from inside the Cell.  Undertaker Vs Brock at Hell in a Cell.

Rollins is upset that his tag partner was laid out.  They have to call the match off.  Stephanie disagrees with that, and Seth asks if she thinks he should face The Dudleys by himself?  Figure it out, says Stephanie.

6-man tag match now.  The Brothers Shield and Randy Orton Vs The Wyatt Family.

Orton, Ambrose, and Reigns win with a RKO by Orton, and a Spear by Reigns.

Reigns tells Wyatt after Hell in a Cell, they are done, and Roman is the one who will lose it.  Believe that.

John Cena’s United States Championship Open Challenge is tonight.

King Barrett joins us for commentary, but right now, its Neville Vs Sheamus.

Sheamus is on the mic, and he hates the disrespect he gets from the Boston people.  He tells Neville, no matter what happens, he is and always will be a loser.

Neville heard enough, and nails him in the leg.  Match is on.

Barrett wants a word with Neville, and that second distracts him, and Sheamus hits a Brogue Kick for the win.

“Corporate” Kane is on his way to the ring, next.

“Corporate” Kane is in the ring.

He is wearing a foot brace, after the attack Rollins laid on him.

Things haven’t gone Seth’s way lately, and after his tag team partner was laid out by Brock, Seth needs a tag team partner, and that partner is Kane.

Seth has a problem with that.

He hates to do this, but Kane isn’t Tom Brady.  Even though they both have deflated balls.  Kane can’t lie, cheat, and swindle his way to get what he wants, because life doesn’t work that way.  He won’t play into those mind games, not today.

Kane’s goal is to be the best Director of Operations he can be, and the best way he can do that is to bring out the best in Seth.

The WWE World Heavyweight Championship tells him he is the best.

Kane wants to make Seth proud of what he sees in the mirror, and when you want to be the best, sometimes you have to go through hell, and face your demons.  That is what his poster says.

Does it count when Seth takes Kane to hell right now?

Here comes Stephanie McMahon.

She has heard enough of these two.  Especially with Seth being the anonymous employee who rattled out on Kane.  And then the insult of Tom Brady.  At least Tom Brady is a team player, and that team player will send his team to another Super Bowl championship.

There is only one way to settle this, at Hell in a Cell, Kane will face Seth Rollins for the WWE World Title.  And if Kane can take his boot off, and team up with Seth Rollins then have at it.

One more thing, if “Demon” Kane does not win WWE World Title at Hell in a Cell, then “Corporate” Kane will be fired.

John Cena’s United States Title Challenge is tonight.

Rollins still isn’t sure about his tag partner tonight, he can’t trust Kane.  HHH reminds him do unto others before they do to you.

Divas action with Natalya Vs Paige.

Natalya picks up the win with a Sharpshooter, making Paige tap out.

At Hell in a Cell, Charlotte puts her Divas Title on the line against Nikki Bella.

This past Thursday, Ryback invoked his rematch clause for the Intercontinental Title, but Kevin Owens walked away.

Ryback in a backstage promo saying actions speak louder than words.

A video on Ryback.

Now picture this Kevin Owens.  Ryback is the lion, KO is the prey.  And every action, he gets closer to getting what he wants.  Its time, it’s feeding time.

Kevin Owens comes to the ring.

Owens Vs Sin Cara, now.

Pop-Up Powerbomb, match is over.

Owens lays Sin Cara out a bit more, but here comes Ryback, with Owens escaping through the crowd.

Stephanie is texting, and New Day intervenes, wanting her to calp with them.

She is not amused.

She saw what happened this past Saturday night, so at Hell in a Cell, New Day will defend their Tag Titles against Dudley Boyz.  Find some positivity in that.

Now WWE are honoring the true heroes, the women that have survived breast cancer.  With Cena and Reigns in the ring.

Tonight, Rollins and Kane Vs The Dudley Boyz.

Kane, complete in a suit and Rollins Vs Dudley Boyz are up now.

This was such a stupid match, and it has killed the show.  Rollins loses by DQ, after he handcuffs “Corporate” Kane, and heads to the back with his injury.

Enter “Demon” Kane.

Kane gets a 3-D though for whatever reason.  Rollins tries to poke the bear with a table, and Kane sits up and hits a Chokeslam.

John Cena’s United States Championship Open Challenge is tonight.

Earlier today, we see a limo that Team Bella entered TD Gardens.  They are interrupted by Team B.A.D. and Sasha even throws Nikki’s Yankees hat away, which is hilarious.  Boston’s own Sasha Banks is ready.

Team Bella Vs Team B.A.D. is now.

Boston’s own Sasha Banks has the mic.  She put the Bos in Boston, and Nikki comes out to interrupt.

Sasha is exactly like the Boston Red Sox, overrated..  Her Yankees are going all the way.  Too bad they will be beat by Astros tomorrow night.

She’s going all the way at Hell in a Cell, and Naomi tells her she is used to going all the way.

We are going to call Nikki the longest reigning Divas Champion, and soon to be 2-time Divas Champion.

Sasha tells her no matter who wins at Hell in a Cell, they are holding the Divas Championship for Sasha Banks.

Team Bella is trying to add dissension here, and Naomi doesn’t want to hear that.

6-woman tag match is now.

Team B.A.D. wins when Sasha hit a Bank Statement.  This Wednesday, she has a big match on NXT Takeover:  Respect, when she faces Bayley in a 30-minute Ironwoman match.

Charlotte and Becky Lynch are with Renee Young.  Paige has her own issues, but in 3 weeks, her match with Nikki will show that her title win was not a fluke, and she earned that.


John Cena’s US Title Open Challenge is tonight.

Earlier tonight, we see the confrontation between Brock Lesnar and The Big Show.

Summer Rae is in the ring.

Summer is over, but for one lucky superstar, summer is just getting started.  So let’s welcome the Bulgarian Brute, and a man she goes home with, Rusev.

She wanted to dedicate an entire segment on Raw to one superstar that has done more than any other superstar.  RuRu, this is for you.

A video of RuRu and Summer together.

RuRu is touched.

He doesn’t know what to say, but when this first started, he didn’t like her at all.  But the last few weeks, when she was in her arms, he has cared about her.

There is something Summer has to ask Rusev.

She gets on one knee, oh boy.

She has a ring?

RuRu, will you marry me?

Even RuRu seems a bit off about this.

He doesn’t even know what to say.

They can have it all, walking out of Wrestlemania with everything.  More than what he had with LaLa.

Just say yes.

This is not your choice, shuddup.

He says…..he says…..he says yes!!

He says yes, but not yet.  They must prove they are worthy.  He must have WWE gold around his waist, then she will have gold around her finger.

Summer is taken back from this, but Rusev is holding the ropes for her, like a gentlemen.  They walk together.

John Cena’s Open Challenge is next.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, Reigns and Orton Vs Wyatt and Strowman.

John Cena comes out now.

Cena is telling us this is the symbol of excellence…blah blah blah.

Who is stepping up?

Dolph Ziggler.

Or is he?

Nope, The New Day are out here, they laid out Ziggler.

Xavier brings up Cena saying time to get serious.  So is this getting serious?  So now Kofi wants to know who answers the challenge?  What we have here is a big question from a big champion laying out a big challenge in a big city for a big moment?

If we only had a big challenger.  Big answer in 3….2….1….

Big E.

Cena wins the match with an Attitude Adjustment, after the ref sent Kofi and Xavier out of ringside area.  However, the match ended so quickly after that New Day comes back and lays out Cena.  Here comes Ziggler.  New Day takes care of him.  And, here comes The Dudleys, but New Day takes care of all four men, lays them out and celebrates with the trombone.

New Day Rocks!!

Kevin’s Thoughts:

WWE treated this show like filler, and Vince wonders why the ratings were so low?  First hour started off good, but the tag match with Kane and Rollins was awful.  And I was in favor of this storyline, plus Stephanie just was in a “mood” today.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Do you agree?  Disagree?  Sound off.

WWE Brock Lesnar’s Go To Hell Tour Presents: Live From MSG

Tonight, WWE Network will feature a house show that will be headlined Brock Lesnar Vs The Big Show.  I also believe we will see Seth Rollins Vs John Cena, for the United States Title, inside a steel cage.

We start the show in 7 minutes.

For the first time, in over a decade….”The Beast” Brock Lesnar comes back to “The Most Famous Arena”, MSG.

We kick the show off with Sheamus and Rusev Vs Randy Orton and Dolph Ziggler.

Rich Brennan, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

The team of Orton and Ziggler win when Orton hits a RKO, and pins Sheamus.

Rusev is on the mic, telling Sheamus he could beat those men by themselves.  He is as useless as Lana.  Go pack your suitcase, and leave.

Sheamus comes back with a Brogue Kick on Rusev.

And he suggests to Rusev he kiss his arse.

Later tonight, Seth Rollins Vs John Cena, inside a steel cage.  But Rollins has to think about Kane.

Oh lord, they are presenting this as a continuation of the storylines here.

Renee Young is with Kane.

Kane is on crutches, but he is here for one reason….Seth Rollins has a chance to bring back the United States Title back inside the most famous arena, Madison Square Garden.  He just visited Seth, and he seemed scared for a demon, and Kane assured him that if he saw that demon, he would come running, or hobbling.

Stardust Vs Neville is now.

Red Arrow, which is an awesome move.

Renee Young is with Paul Heyman.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman.  And on behalf of all of us home-grown New Yorkers, he wants to welcome us to the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden.

If you can’t get your breath here when you walk in, you aren’t human, because this place is special.  Which is why it’s unusual for a big 7’foot giant to come into this building breathing, because he is like Boston Celtics.  Except his home team doesn’t have defense, this is all about offense, and his client will take care of Big Show tonight, this is the capital of Suplex City, his client is Brock Lesnar.

We are live in New York City, and we see footage of last Monday night on Raw, with the diva trouble.

Diva tag action is up now.  Team Bella Vs Team PCB.

Team Bellas win with a Rack Attack, Nikki pins Paige after Charlotte and Becky turn their backs on their partner.

Paige can’t believe her teammates would do this to her. She is their best friends. She would never do anything like that to her teammates. She doesn’t know if she can ever forgive them, and she walks off.

We see what happened this past week between Wyatt and Reigns on Raw and Smackdown.

Reigns Vs Wyatt inside Hell in a Cell, on October 25th.

Our next match is for the IC Title. Y2J Vs KO.

Jericho informs us this is the 25th anniversary of Chris Jericho tonight. Lance Storm is in attendance, his first opponent. They did a 10-minute draw, and went from The Moose Hall to Madison Square Garden.

He remembers being 3 years old, and watching his dad, Ted Irvine playing for the New York Rangers. And here he is, after all of these years later, with his friends.

Lance Storm, Don Callus, and in front of so many Jericholics. Tonight, he has a chance to become an Intercontinental Champion for a unprecented 10 times.

Win or lose, he is going to celebrate near 32nd street, with the Jericholics and we will never…..EEEEEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVER be the same, agAIn!!

Owens Vs Jericho is up now.

Owens rolls up Jericho after he poked Jericho in the eye, who was trying a Walls.

A fun match here.

The Big Show is ready for his match with Lesnar.

But now, WWE Tag Team Titles are on the line. The New Day Vs The Dudley Boyz.

Dudleys win again, by DQ. After a 3-D, Xavier interferes again.

Such a cheap ending, this felt like a title change in MSG.

But Xavier goes through a ride, again.


Brock Lesnar Vs Big Show is now.

My gosh, 3 Chokeslams from The Big Show. 5 trips to Suplex City by Brock, and a F-5 gives Brock the win.

Incredible action in so little time.

The Go To Hell Tour continues this Monday night.

Brock comes out for more.

Suplex number 6.

And another F-5.

Our main event, inside a steel cage for the United States Title. John Cena Vs Seth Rollins is now.

Cena wins when “Demon” Kane came out just as Rollins was climbing over the cage, he tried to do a splash, but is met with an Attitude Adjustment, and retains his title.

Now Kane comes into the ring, and gives Seth a Chokeslam, and a Tombstone Piledriver, sending the crowd home happy.

Kane wants the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, as we end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Overall, I liked this show, even though at times, it did feel like another episode of Raw. But the final two matches delivered, and felt special. I can see Cena Vs Rollins anytime.

Now that this show was over, I expect WWE to now focus on Hell in a Cell, which should be a big show.

What were your thoughts on tonight? Send them to me.

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/28/15…The Demon Kane Is Loose

Where is Seth Rollins?  Last week, he was shown through the basque of hell, when The “Demon” Kane shows up underneath the ring, preventing Seth from being a 2-time United States Champion.  Is Kane here?

We are also 5 days away from Brock Lesnar’s Go To Hell tour, when a MSG show takes place, at Madison Square Garden, exclusively on WWE Network.  Is Brock Lesnar in the house tonight?

Raw, in five minutes.

We see clips from last week, when Seth is sent straight to hell, by The “Demon” Kane.

“Tonight is the night” as the Raw theme tells us.

We are live in Buffalo, New York.  The United States Open Challenge kicks things off.

Tonight, Roman Reigns gets his wish, going against Bray Wyatt.

Who takes the open challenge tonight?

Have no fear, The Champ is here.

This championship is a symbol of excellence, a symbol of opportunity.  And this championship will be defended here tonight, right now.  Because Buffalo is the place to be, John Cena is the man to beat.  John Cena US Open Challenge is open now.  You want some, come get some.

The trombone is singing John Cena’s theme song.  It’s a new day.

It looks like Big E. is going for the gold.

Our WWE Tag Team Champions ARE HERE!!

And The New Day is here to make WWE great again.  This Saturday, live in Madison Square Garden, only on WWE Network, as Big E. tells us they will finally get rid of those nasty, disgusting Dudley Boyz.

But New Day are here to answer Cena’s Open Challenge.  They have a new slogan for Cena….Hustle, Loyalty, Booty!!

I like it.

They can be Tag Team Champs, and US Champ at the same time.

Cena is done with the speech, there is a time to be entertaining, and a time to be serious.  And they need to take him serious, or else they all will get their asses beat.  So choose.

He cussed, but it’s Xavier Woods stepping up.

The match ends in a DQ, when The New Day interferes, giving Cena the win.  Here comes The Dudley Boyz to help Cena out.

6-man tag match later tonight, I am guessing.

6-man tag match is taking place, in progress.

The New Day pulls off an upset here, with Kofi hitting Trouble in Paradise.

The Dudley Boyz get a chance for some revenge this Saturday night.

Last week, Paige turned on Charlotte.

Tonight, Miz TV with Charlotte and Becky Lynch.

The Authority are with some woman from HR.  They want to deal with “Corporate” Kane.

This is not a good idea.

Ashley is here because there was a complaint filed against Kane.  So Ashley is here to access the situation.

Seth is irate over this, what kind of spineless coward wouldn’t deal directly with Kane?

Ashley will watch Kane, and Kane tells Seth he can handle the heat.  Remembers, he is the man….who handled the balance.

Seth is keeping an eye on him.

Kane is giving us Roman Reigns Vs Bray Wyatt, one on one tonight.

Ambrose is advising Reigns not to face Bray tonight, and Roman isn’t hearing any of that.

He knows The Wyatts have something up their dirty sleeves tonight.

Bray Wyatt started this, and Roman is finishing this, one on one tonight.

But if those two apes come flying out to help Bray, Ambrose will come out and take care of things.

Reigns suggests Randy Orton can help him, but Dean doesn’t want any outsiders to come and save the day, like Chris Jericho.

Reigns tells them they can’t finish this, and Reigns can.

Orton will believe it when he sees it.  But until that, its open season.

Mark Henry is in the ring, ready for The Big Show.

Knockout Punch, another 3 minute match.  Former 3-time World Champion.

Tonight, Reigns Vs Wyatt, one more time.

Miz TV is next.

Time for the must-see WWE talk show in WWE history, welcome to Miz TV.

It seems we can’t get over The Divas Revolution, but it seems the divas are through with each other.

We see last week’s segment when Paige leaves her buddies.

The crumbling of PCB is the kind of drama we can see on tomorrow’s season finale of “Total Divas”, but here come his guests, Becky Lynch and the new Divas Champion, Charlotte.

Becky Lynch isn’t hearing any of this from The Miz.

The fans want to know a bit more from Becky and Charlotte breaking up from Paige.

The P from PCB said some things that need to be addressed.

Either A. Paige will come to the ring, so they can talk things out, like a woman.  Or B. she comes out, and they just throw down.

The Miz thinks this is his show, and Becky throws his mic.

Paige, let’s go.  But Team Bella show up, instead.

They didn’t come here to fight.  They wanted to thank them, because as their team is full of high schoolers, Team Bella is stronger than ever.

By the time Nikki gets her rematch, Charlotte will be hot and bothered, and she will be Divas Champion, again.

Charlotte invites Nikki in, so she can make her tap out, again.

Paige was right, all reigns come to an end, just like she was the longest reigning Divas Champion of all time.

But she disagrees with one thing Paige said, she didn’t start Divas Revolution, it was all one woman, and that is Nikki.

Charlotte tells Nikki, this isn’t about who started the Divas Revolution, it was about the fans, and watching them get their opportunity.

Now all five want to fight, and Paige interrupts.

Nikki didn’t start this Divas Revolution, Paige started it, by being the first NXT WOMEN’S champion.  Charlotte wouldn’t be Divas Champion if it wasn’t for Paige.

Nikki asks if these two are even going to say anything, with friends like this, who needs enemies.

Paige answers back with if you have 2 boyfriends like you do, who needs ambition.

Now that was the pipe bomb, and ll six women fight it off when we go to a break.

6-Divas tag match is up now, in progress.

Paige leaves her partners after Charlotte runs into her.  Natalya walks in to team with CB, and Paige attacks her from behind.  Nikki approaches Charlotte, hits a Rack Attack and pins the Divas Champion.

This Saturday on WWE Network, Brock Lesnar Vs Big Show preview is next.

WWE2K16 is coming out October 27th.

Lesnar Vs Show, this Saturday, Live At MSG.

Kane talks to Seth about their history, with Ashley.

Kane has a gift for Seth.

It’s his severed head from his statue.

He got it from the trash.

Very nice of Kane, from Ashley.

Seth seems creeped out by this.

The Prime Time Players Vs Strowman and Harper.

Strowman takes care of Titus O’ Neil, putting him to sleep.

This guy is a beast.

Tonight, Reigns Vs Wyatt.

Stardust Vs Neville is up now.

Neville sets Stardust up with Red Arrow, and here comes King Barrett.  Hits a Bull Hammer on Neville, costing Stardust the match, and he nails a Bull Hammer on Stardust.

Give me a bloody mic.

All hail the return of the king.

Ashley is headed to the ring, to give her the decision about Kane’s future.

Before she is able to read her report, here comes Seth Rollins.

He tells Ashley Kane is not the man he thinks he is.  He needs to show us something, and we see the video of “Demon” Kane.

That is the real Kane.  Not the “imposter” in a cheap suit.  Because the real Kane has the soul of a demon.  And she can’t give Kane his job, because the carnage that will be soon to follow will be on her head.

Last week, Kane came up underneath the ring, and try to drag him to hell.  But people like Seth doesn’t go to hell.  He is going to heaven.

You don’t believe him?  Ask The Pope.

When he was here last week, The Pope told Seth he is going to heaven.  He feels like he is in heaven, with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and he looks down at hell.

Kane shows us Seth Rollins video.

Ashley’s decision.  Poor Ashley.

She has the determination that Kane is of sound mind, and can continue his duties as Director of Operations.

If anyone needs to be evaluated, it’s Seth Rollins.  He is rude, narcissistic, and paranoid.  He is the most rude employee during her time in WWE.

Seth is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  This is Kane’s fault.  He is the champion of the world.  He is out of his mind.

The title goes down, as does the mic/

Rollins hits “Corporate” Kane with a Pedigree.

He is the champion of the world.  He doesn’t get one on him.

Seth grabs a chair, and nails Kane’s leg with it.

Hits Kane in the back six times.

Now Rollins shatters Kane’s leg with the chair.

Now Seth mocks him, did he get a boo-boo?  Who does he think he is?  He sure isn’t a demon, he looks very human now.  Crying, squealing.  Did Kane think he would fool the entire world?  Everyone knows Kane is a fraud.  He will never get through Rollins, he will never get his title.  His days of getting one on Seth is over.

The ambulance stops….

That is proof that anyone who steps on Seth will get what they deserve.

We see red smoke, and the door opens, it’s the “Demon” Kane.

“Demon” Kane has arisen, and Seth better run the hell out of the building.

Hell, fire and brimstone, here comes Kane!!

Chokeslam on Rollins, Kane goes for the Tombstone Piledriver, but Rollins runs away, without his championship.

Kane wants to get himself some.

Our main event is Reigns Vs Wyatt, one on one.

We hear from Bray.

Did you see what they did earlier?  Braun and Harper make him so proud.  They want nothing more than to come to the ring with him, and tear him to pieces.  But he decided to grant his wish.  Tonight, Bray alone, decided to enter the battlefield.  Tonight, Bray finishes Reigns for good, alone.  It was always about himself and Reigns.  Be careful what you wish for, cause only a fool will run into a dragon, and think he couldn’t get burnt.


Our main event is Wyatt Vs Reigns.

The Buffalo Bills are in the house, tonight.

Oh no, it’s Bo Dallas.

They are truly an inspiration, aren’t they?  Almost an inspiration.  They are missing one important thing, a Super Bowl trophy.  All you have to do is BOlieve!!.

Oh lord, here comes Randy Orton.  I don’t think Bo has a chance here.

RKO, that’s all she wrote.

Buffalo Bills are impressed.

Last Thursday night on Smackdown, Kevin Owens left Rusev, so Ziggler and Ryback win.

Owens Vs Rusev, is next.

Ryback joins us for commentary, when we see Rusev Vs Owens.

The match ends in a no contest, when Owens shoves Rusev into Ryback.  Now all three men fight each other, and we see Rusev and Owens teaming up again, but Ziggler comes out to help Ryback, but KO shows us the Intercontinental Title and leaves.

Pediatric Cancer month is September, and we see media WWE had celebrating #JustDance to honor the cure.

Paul Heyman is coming to the ring, next.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman.  He is truly the devil’s advocate.  Because anyone who steps in the ring with his client in October will go through hell, because his client is Brock Lesnar.

This Saturday night, hell will descend into Madison Square Garden, because his client will dewclaw the world’s largest athlete, The Big Show.

The Big Show has been complacent, because he is bored.  Nobody could take Big Show to his limits, but he knows Brock will take him to the limit.

When that happens, he will empower his Knockout Punch, and will take out his opponent, and that thrives Brock Lesnar.  This Saturday night, on WWE Network, his client Brock Lesnar will take The Big Show to Suplex City.

Here comes Big Show.

Complacent?  Motivated?  Oh he’s motivated now because he is stepping into the ring to face his client, Brock Lesnar.

Heyman is right, Big Show is fired up, he is motivated.  Because he is the one guy that can take Brock to the limit.

He has a question, was Brock upset when he found out who he will face this Saturday?

No answer from Heyman.

He knew it, because he knows Big Show is the one that can beat him, so why not continue his plug.  This Saturday, it’s Eat, Sleep, Knock Out Brock, Repeat.

Heyman leaves, and Big Show tells Heyman to start thinking about his future without Brock Lesnar.

Our main event, Reigns Vs Wyatt is next.

The match ends in a double countout when both men just beat the living hell out of each other.  They go through a barricade, and Wyatt stands up first.  Celebrates this on the announce table, and Reigns spears Wyatt through the Spanish Announce Table, as we end the show here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

What a great way to end the show, the most exciting ending in a long time.

But we kick the show off with a John Cena US Title Open Challenge.  And that turned into Cena teaming up with The Dudley Boyz, which is something we thought we’d never see two months ago.

We are indeed ready for Brock Lesnar’s Go To Hell Tour, and that kicks off this Saturday night.

Your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/21/15…The Fallout From Night Of Champions

Tonight, Sting makes an announcement.  We also will see a John Cena US Open Challenge, and a big 6-man tag match.

Raw is now.

We kick the show off with The Wyatt Family.

The Fireflies are out in Laredo, Texas.

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

Roman Reigns, he tried to warn him with his words, but apparently he didn’t speak loudly enough.  They tried to warn him with actions, but they didn’t hit hard enough.  Last night, he reached his hands out to Mt. Olympus, and he tried to grab him by the throat.  But he told us they would all fall down, but he is not a liar.

Here comes Reigns.

Reigns is all by himself.

It’s not just about Roman Reigns, it’s Reigns and Bray Wyatt.  It started here, and he says let’s finish it here.  Send the big’uns to the swamp, and we’ll see who survives Lareda tonight.

Bray has nothing prove, and Reigns tells him he’s too scared to go one on one with him?  They don’t need a match, not even a referee.  Just a fight.

Bray sends the troops, and we get our fight.

But Strowman gets involved, and here comes Dean Ambrose.

The numbers game catches up, and here comes Randy Orton, coming to himself some.

They are building Strowman like a beast here.  He gets jumped by Ambrose, dropkicked by Orton, Superman punched by Reigns, and he is still standing outside of the ring.

Seth Rollins lost his United States Title, but survived in his WWE World Title defense.

Kane returns and has the last laugh.

Seth Rollins is backstage, about to go in The Authority’s locker room, and he meets up with Kane instead.

Kane is still the Director of Operations, and he has recuperated since Brock Lesnar took him out.  He is denying that he had anything to do with last night.

Kane has given Rollins his US Title rematch with John Cena, tonight.

The Astro Alliance are in the ring.  Stardust and The Ascension.

Stardust and The Ascension Vs Neville and Lucha Dragons, now.

Lucha Dragons and Neville pick up the win, Klaistro getting the pin fall.

Corporate Kane is back in charge, and our main event is John Cena Vs Seth Rollins, for the United States Title.

We come back, and see Seth Rollins run into The Authority.

He can’t believe they reinstated Kane as Director of Operations.  They deny they had anything to do with it.  Rollins has a chance to get back his United States Championship, so he needs to focus on that.  They will worry about Kane.

Last night, Kevin Owens defeated Ryback to become the new Intercontinental Champion.

Ryback is ready for action, next.

Ryback is facing Bo Dallas.  Kevin Owens joins us at commentary, with the IC Title around him.

Bo congratulates Kevin for being the new IC Champion.  Ryback didn’t lose the title because he BOlieved.  He lost because he thought he was better than Kevin Owens, and he never will be.  BOlieve.

Shellshock, match is done.  Owens attacks Ryback.  But Ryback fights back, and Owens runs off with the title.

Up next, Charlotte’s Diva Championship Celebration.


The 16-time World Champion, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair is here.

Flair is a proud father.  He also had fun in Laredo, Texas before.  But there are times in a man’s life that happens that are so special.

The fans chant thank you Flair.

The first time you step in that curtain, or the first time you step on apron, first time you get in the ring, or win championships.  The first time you fall in love, get married once, twice, three times.  But make no mistake about it, the proudest memory of his wrestling career was when his little girl won her first championship.

She worked, she sweat, she bled, she paid the price, and she beat a great champion, in Nikki Bella.  So Flair gives us the new Divas Champion, Charlotte.

Charlotte comes out with Paige and Becky Lynch.

Father and daughter give us a WOOOOO.

Dad, since she was a little girl, she wanted to be like Ric.  She always thought he was the best, and if she can make him half as proud of her as he has with her, then she has done a good job of being her daughter.

PCB, since the Diva Revolution started, teaming up with the two of them every night has been a dream of hers.  She has always wanted to be Divas champion, and she now has 2 best friends.

She thanks Becky for reminding her to live her life, and not take everything so seriously.

Paige, they started in NXT together, and she followed her, because she wanted to be with her.

Paige now talks, and she reminds us that she started this Revolution.  Charlotte acts like she is a Hall of Famer, but she’s not.  Charlotte won the Divas Title, big deal.  She won the Divas Title on her first night.

But Brie is going to take back her Divas Title, and take over again, because there never was a Divas Revolution.  Becky is the least relevant of the group, she will never be Divas Champion.  Team B.A.D. will continue to hold their ground as placements.  Charlotte is nothing but a placeholder.  We all know why the Bellas have their spots.

And where is Nattie?  Mrs. Hart?  And the only reason Charlotte is even here is because of her old man.

Enter Team Bellas.

She calls Paige un-classy, and she could never handle being the Divas Champion, but she held on to it for a year.  But Charlotte is going to lose to her sister, and then hand over the Divas Championship, when Nikki revokes her rematch clause.

Charlotte Vs Brie is now.

Brie wins with a Figure Eight.

Tonight, United States Championship is on the line, Seth Rollins Vs John Cena.

Sheamus Vs Mark Henry is now.

Sheamus wins with 2 Brogue Kicks.

Sheamus tells us we can say what we want, but refer him as the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  It’s going to happen, just a matter of time.

6-man tag match tonight, The New Day and Rusev Vs Dolph Ziggler and The Dudley Boyz.

The Authority run into Corporate Kane.

Kane wanted to make an impact his first night back.  HHH reminds Kane he just showed up last night.  What is HHH talking about?

Stephanie tells him that if he wants to get back with Seth Rollins, fine but don’t insult their intelligence.

Kane just wants to come back, and do what is best for business.  Stephanie is fine with that, they can get on the same page, just give it back.

Kane gives her a high-five, give her back his mask.

My gosh, it’s gone.  The last time he had it, he gave it to Stephanie and if she lost it, then they have a big problem.  But he can help them find it.

Backstage, Paige is confronted by Natalya.

She understands Paige is frustrated by not getting Diva Title shots, but that was Charlotte’s moment, and she ruined it for her.  But she has a match with Naomi and the only person holding back Paige is herself.

Oh glorious, New Day and Rusev Vs Ziggler and Dudleys.

Xavier has the remains of a table from last night.

They had to remind this piece of wood from his buttocks.

How many people may suffer, Kofi asks before we say enough is enough.

The Dudleys are a menace to society and they must be stopped.

Big E. suggests we build a wall around Dudleyville.  A great wall, a beautiful wall.  A wall that can protect us.  A wall that can protect us from our tables.

Kofi tells us together, we can make everything better.  Together, we can save the tables.

Rusev comes out.

The Russian flag is back.  Putin is proud.

Rusev and New Day win, when Ziggler gives Xavier a Superkick, then Rusev hits one for good measure, and wins.

A week from Saturday, Dudley Boyz face New Day for Tag Team Titles, on WWE Network.

Earlier tonight, Seth Rollins runs into Corporate Kane.

Tonight, Cena Vs Rollins, for the United States Title.

Naomi wins with her rear view, after Sasha and Tamina distract her a bit.

The Authority are beside themselves when Seth comes to them.

He wants to know what the plan is.  There is no plan.  Kane is back to getting into his corporate duties.

Seth isn’t buying it.

HHH tells Rollins they will handle Kane, and he advises Seth to handle John Cena.

Big Show goes one on one with Cesaro.

A week from Saturday, Big Show faces Lesnar at MSG.

Big Show wins with a KO Punch.

Biggest reason he got the win was because of his match with Brock in 12 days.

Big Show is on the mic.  Boo him all we want, this is a message for Brock Lesnar.  October 3rd, at Madison Square Garden, those two will face each other.  He is the greatest giant that has ever been seen.  Survivor Series 2002, Brock Lesnar was “The Next Big Thing”, and can’t be beat.  But Big Show did that.  He knows that he can’t stand Brock.

Suplex City chants, and nobody can take his ass to Suplex City.

Brock thinks he can join the Go To Hell Tour with an easy victory over Big Show?  Show has been in this business too long to be taken for granted.  Brock has this fist waiting for him.

Next, Cena Vs Rollins.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, Ryback and Ziggler Vs Rusev and Kevin Owens.

Earlier tonight, we see The Wyatts continue their feud with The Brothers Shield, and Orton comes back.

The Wyatts interrupt.

Luke Harper listens to voices too, HIS voice.  Bray Wyatt tells Luke to remember his mistakes, I guess Orton does not.

Strowman caught a snake once, killed it, and drank its blood.

Bray approves of this, and reminds us they all fall down, someday.

Main event time, Cena Vs Rollins.

Cena wins with an AA, pulling off a big victory, with Cena leaving the ring, and heading to the back.

Corporate Kane shows up on the Titantron, tells Seth that in order to assure he is the greatest WWE World Champion he possibly can be, there will be many challenges, some that he may not even see coming.

We see the flames, and hear Kane’s music, but Demon Kane shows up from hell…underneath the ring.  He finally grabs Seth’s legs, and sends him into hell, as we end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

No Sting, and no Chris Jericho, who we were led to believe both would appear tonight, but I liked this show anyway.

Seth Rollins once again proved that he is one of the best in-ring performers, and he bumps for anyone, like HBK used to do, back in the day.

This truly is Seth’s moment now, and it’s been his year.

I don’t care about Paige’s heel turn, because we have seen it many times.  I still think The Four Horsewomen, (Charlotte, Becky, Sasha, and Baylee) should have come out from the seats and take control of the Divas division.  So we see what we see.  We can only find out where we go from here, but good to see Nattie on TV again.

They are building the October 3rd show, which is great.  I expect to see Heyman next week.

Overall, a decent show.  What was your thoughts?  Let me know.

WWE Night Of Champions 9/20/15

Tonight, Seth Rollins defends his United States Championship against John Cena, and his WWE World Heavyweight Title against Sting.  Will Rollins be a champion at the end of the night?

All of the titles are on the line tonight as well, we are just minutes away from the Night of Champions Kick-Off show.

Renee Young is joining us with Byron Saxton, Corey Graves, and Houston’s own Booker T.

Tom Phillips is joining us in the Social Media Lounge.  His guests tonight are Tag Team Champions, The New Day.

Tonight, our Kick-off match is Stardust and The Ascension Vs Neville and Lucha Dragons.

Tonight, Seth Rollins is pitching a double-header.  He will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Sting, and his United States Championship against John Cena.

The Road to Night of Champions video is playing now, with Rollins, Sting, and Cena.

Can Seth walk out of Houston with both titles?

Eden Stiles is standing by with Mr. Money in the Bank, Sheamus.

Sheamus has been in the WWE for a while.  He has made a few friends, and many enemies.  But those friends know he is the future WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  They have informed him that Seth Rollins will compete in two matches back to back.  And that means that if Rollins can survive those two matches, Sheamus can cash in and become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

But what if Sting wins?  He wins the one title that has eluded his entire career, it would be history.  But then again, Sheamus can cash in, and make history himself.  Either way, tune in and history can be his story.

Cena Vs Rollins first, then Sting Vs Rollins.  The right move, WWE World Title match should be the main event of this sort of PPV.

Tonight, The Intercontinental Title is on the line, Ryback Vs Kevin Owens.

Eden is with Kevin Owens.

What is going through Kevin’s mind knowing he can make this illustrious list of champions to hold IC Title.

It is a long list, but it’s not about them, tonight, it’s about the prize.  Winning the IC Title means more money, more opportunities, and providing for his family.

And Ryback will be back to reading self-help books, after losing to Owens.

Divas Title match is on the line tonight too.  Charlotte Vs Nikki Bella.

Nikki’s video is being played.

Also tonight, Dolph Ziggler Vs Rusev, with Summer Rae’s love triangle.

Ziggler Vs Rusev video is showing.

Also tonight, #SaveTheTables will be looming.  The Dudley Boyz Vs The New Day, for WWE Tag Team Titles.

The New Day is with Tom Phillips in the Social Media Lounge, which is glorious.

Our kick-off match is up now.  Stardust and The Ascension Vs Neville and Lucha Dragons.

Stardust and The Ascension win when Stardust uses his own partner’s body, and gives Neville Queen’s Crossbow (Crossroads).

Tom Phillips is with New Day in the Social Media Lounge.

The New Day kicks Tom to the curb, and answers the questions themselves.  They won’t do a free concert for us, they save the world by saving the tables.

6-man tag war is up tonight.  The Wyatts Vs The Brothers Shield and a mystery partner.

Video is showing now.

Seth Rollins defends both titles tonight.  We are less than 3 minutes away.

Night of Champions is on now.  Live in Houston, Texas.

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

IC Title match kicks things off, with Ryback Vs Kevin Owens.

Kevin Owens becomes the new Intercontinental Champion, when he raked Ryback’s eye with Shellshock, and Owens rolls up Ryback.

One title match, one title change.

Wow, Brock Lesnar’s Go To Hell Tour kicks off next month, with a Madison Square Garden show, when he faces The Big Show.  Then after Monday’s Raw on October 5th, he will be a guest on Stone Cold’s Podcast.

Then, officially on October 25th, Brock faces The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell.

Ziggler Vs Rusev is up now.

Rich Brennan wants to speak with Rusev, but Rusev doesn’t want to speak with him, he wants to take care of Ziggler.

And Summer Rae is wearing those earings.

Ziggler Vs Rusev is now.

Ziggler wins with Zig Zag, after Summer accidentally costs Rusev the match, throwing a temper and throws a shoe that hits him.

Wow, such a confusing feud here.

We are seeing Nikki Bella do push-ups.  No, seriously.  It’s Big Momma Pump, Nikki Bella.  We see champion, and challenger.  Ric Flair is with Charlotte tonight.  Bella Vs Charlotte.

But first, New Day Vs The Dudleys, for Tag Team Titles.

New Day tells us the dirty, smelly tables are in danger of being destroyed.  But they are here to save the tables.

The Dudleys win by DQ, when Xavier stopped Bubba from getting the win, after a Team 3-D.  Xavier actually played the “Rocky” theme on his Trombone, which is hilarious since his name in TNA was Consequences Creed, after Apollo Creed.

Big E. calls for a table.  Not good.

Yeah, Xavier is crashing through the table with 3-D.

Divas Title match is up now.  Nikki Bella Vs Charlotte.

Charlotte wins the Divas Title, making Nikki submit to the Figure 8.  They told a story here of Nikki working on Charlotte’s knee, I am surprised though that they did this, since the leg was worked on.  But a good match, and a good story.

Ric Flair shares the moment with his daughter, which is awesome.

Jo-Jo is standing by with the new Intercontinental Champion, Kevin Owens.

There was controversy?  Kevin Owens won’t let that ruin this moment.  He has his prize back, and he doesn’t need a book for this, but it’s no secret how great Owens is.

Night of Champions Kick-Off panel is here.

Who is Ambrose and Reigns tag partner?  We find out, but first we see the Kick-Off match from earlier tonight.  Stardust and The Ascension win.

We see Ric celebrate his daughter win the Divas Title….WOOOOOOOO!!

Ric is ready for the party.

6-man tag match is up now.

Who is the third man?

It’s Chris Jericho!!

The Wyatts win when Strowman put Jericho out with his dominant bear hug.

I love how big they put over Bryan Strowman here.

Jericho walks away from Ambrose and Reigns.

So is Chris sticking for a bit?  That would be great for me.

The Authority is wishing Seth Rollins luck on tonight’s matches.  It’s time for Rollins to prove why he is the man.

He’s ready, and so is Sheamus.

Our double main event is up now.  Rollins Vs Cena, for the United States Title is first.

Cena wins the United States Championship for the 5th time with a clean Attitude Adjustment.

Disappointing, but very predictable.

Rollins tries to leave, but Cena tells him he must defend the WWE World Title.  And he nails Seth with an AA.

Enter Sting.

Rollins retains the title in a hard-fought match with a roll up.  It looked like Sting was legitimately hurt, he went through a Spanish Announce Table, and hit his head on a monitor, he also flew off the top rope on a plancha.  He is 56-years old.  The ring physician came in and checked on him.

Here comes Sheamus.

Brogue Kick!!

Sheamus is cashing in, but Kane has other thoughts.

Complete with mask.

Chokeslam on Rollins!!

Sheamus wants Kane to give him one more, but Kane Chokeslams him.

Tombstone Piledriver!!

The show ends with the return of “The Demon” Kane.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A fun night here, and some good matches.  Whether you like the idea of Cena winning United States Title or not, it happened.  But the Cena Open Challenge comes back, so maybe it’s not all bad.

But the story here was Sting working his ass off for a 56-year-old and surely he still can do it.  So where we go with him, anyone’s guess.

They are also teasing the HHH Vs Rollins program we will see here.

Good to see Chris Jericho back too, and I would love to see him face Ambrose.

The Dudleys did not win titles, but they will down the road.

Surprised that Charlotte won though.  She still needs to build her fan base.

Overall, a good show here.  We will have to see what happens tomorrow night on Raw.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/14/15…The Final Countdown

After an absence of a few weeks, I am back.  Night of Champions is this Sunday, so we expect to see some build-up for that event.  We will also see Nikki Bella defend her Divas Title, on the brink of breaking AJ Lee’s reign as the longest reigning Divas Champion.  But does Charlotte have other plans for it?

Raw is now.

Footage from last Monday night, when Sting crushed Seth Rollins’ statue.

We are live in Memphis.  We will have another 20 minute promo from The Authority kicking things off.

This is pederastic Cancer month, WWE is joining forces with Connor’s Cure.  We see a very nice display of that.

This is the Season Premiere of Monday Night Raw!!

This has been a successful year, with new people making a new mark in WWE.  The next wave of superstars have risen, and will be led into the future by one man.  That man is THE MAN, who is the United States Champion, and the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, none other than Seth Rollins.

And this Sunday, at Night of Champions, Seth Rollins has an opportunity to cement his legacy forever.  Because he will defend his United States Championship against John Cena.  And he will defend his WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Sting.

And the Divas Revolution will give us history tonight, when Nikki Bella defends her title against Charlotte.  We will either see Charlotte win her first ever Divas Title, or we will see Nikki Bella become the longest reigning Diva’s Champion.

And HHH tells us this also will be a historic evening when the man they called “The Franchise” in WCW.  He will be competing inside a WWE ring on Raw, and that is the man they called Sting.

Sting faces The Big Show.

So with that in mind, HHH has one question for us…..are you ready?

No Memphis, he said ARE YOU READY?

Our first match is for the WWE Tag Team Championship.  It’s The New Day Vs The Prime Time Players.

HHH and Stephanie McMahon are getting down with The New Day.

Now that was funny.

The New Day wins the match with their top rope sandwich.  A very fun match, with Xavier using the trombone.

New Day Vs Dudley Boyz this Sunday night.

Tonight, Miz TV will give us The Wyatt Family. Also, we see footage from Starrcade ’88, when it was Sting and the late, great “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes Vs The Road Warriors.

Sting Vs The Big Show, later tonight.

We get a backstage segment with The Authority. Seth Rollins liked HHH’s moves, and loves Sting Vs Big Show. Steph tells him to enjoy the night, and prepare for his 2 matches at Night of Champions.

But what about John Cena and Sheamus?

HHH suggests the two men face each other, later tonight.

Last week, Nikki Bella shared us with this being the night she breaks the longest reigning Divas Title run. Charlotte informs Nikki they face each other.

Renee Young is with Ric Flair and Charlotte. Charlotte is ready for tonight, and Naitch is doing only what he can do…..WOOOOOOO

Paige Vs Sasha Boss, is now.

Sasha Banks made Paige tap out with The Bank Statement. A big win for Paige.

Team BAD attacked Becky and Paige after the match.

Footage from last week is shown when The Wyatt Family took out Randy Orton on Monday night, and Jimmy Uso on Smackdown.

Miz TV, with The Wyatt Family is next.

Footage from Connor’s Cure is being shown.

Miz TV now.

The season premiere of Miz TV. Tonight, he pulled all of the stops to bring us some special guests.

Please welcome The Wyatt Family, and here they come, in their glory.

The Wyatts are in charge of this interview.

Miz wants to know who is Braun Strowman.

Braun isn’t answering, and Wyatt tells Miz that this is what he wanted. To always get the scoop, and get anything he wants, and wants, and wants.

But what does Bray want?

Bray wants The Miz to suffer. He wants Reigns and Ambrose to suffer. He already showed Randy Orton and Jimmy Uso. And at the end of the day, they all fall down.

Here comes The Brothers Shield.

Ambrose takes out The Miz. This is now between The Wyatts and The Brothers Shield.


Bray makes Reigns sick to his stomach. He thinks he is king of the world. They try to take out their partners. They took out Orton, they took out his cousin, and they will pay.

They think they are the man, but Bray couldn’t beat Reigns one on one. And then it was two on two, they didn’t get that job done at Summerslam either. They want 3-on-2, but it won’t happen. They found a tag partner, and this is going to be a war, believe that.

Segment ends.

The season premiere of Monday Night Raw. Sting makes his Raw in-ring debut. We see footage of Great American Bash ’90, when Sting defeated Ric Flair to become the WCW World Champion for the first time.

And tonight, Sting Vs Big Show.

But next, Cena Vs Sheamus.

Cena beat Sheamus clean, with an AA.

A good match between the two of them.

6 days away from Night of Champions, where this is the only night when all of the titles are being defended.

See, I would treat all of the titles important, so I would think they all would be defended the same time, but I guess not.

We are 2 hours away from Nikki Bella being the longest reigning Divas Champion. She faces Charlotte, later tonight.

Ryback is in the ring.

He is proud to stand here as our Intercontinental Champion. He finds it fitting we are here in Memphis, Tennessee. Because Kevin Owens has “The Big Guy” all shook up.


Last week, Kevin Owens cost Ryback the match against Seth Rollins. That is not what a real warrior does, attack from behind.

Here comes Kevin Owens.

Owens brings up Ryback talking about reading “The Secret” to help restore his life, when he was going through negative things. Owens actually bought it. He wasn’t impressed, because this book is a crutch for weak people.

He can’t blame him for reading it, but he can blame him for believing it. Because he is a monster. He is the strongest man in the locker room, yet he is the weakest. He thinks it’s a travesty Ryback is even the Intercontinental Champion.

Clearly Owens doesn’t know who Ryback is. He is “The Big Guy”, he wakes up hungry. He goes to sleep to say thank you, he wakes up again, to say feed me more.

Ryback knows Kevin’s story, he took the long way to reach WWE, and he respects that. He isn’t afraid to say he was skyrocketed to the top. But then he hit rock bottom, and we all saw it. But he got right back up, and he became the IC Champion.

Owens tells Ryback he is, for now. But if Owens ever received a shot, he wouldn’t be.

Ryback informs Owens he went to The Authority, and this Sunday, he faces Owens for the IC Championship.

He isn’t just a big guy, he is “THE BIG GUY”

Starrcade 1997, Sting defeats Hollywood Hogan to win the World Heavyweight Championship. The man who held Sting up was none other than The Big Show.

Tonight, those two go one on one.

Our next match is Stardust and The Ascension Vs Lucha Dragons and Neville, but the match strangely never takes place.

The 6 men just tear each other up, and no bell is rang. I am sure the 6 men will compete at Night of Champions, in an Elimination match.

Nikki Bella video is shown, on how “impressive” her title reign is. Whatever.

Nikki Vs Charlotte is up next.

The Twins tried Twin Magic again, but this didn’t work. Charlotte rolled up Brie, and wins the match, and title.

Ric Flair came out to celebrate, but here comes Stephanie McMahon.

She told the referee that the twins tried to cheat, so therefore, the winner by DQ is Charlotte. But Nikki keeps her championship, but at Night of Champions, Charlotte will get a rematch, and if Nikki loses in any way, by pin, submission, DQ, or Countout, she will lose her Divas Championship.

Survivor Series 2014, Sting made his WWE debut. Tonight, he faces Big Show one on one.

Rusev Vs Cesaro is now.

Ziggler came out during the match, offers Summer Rae a gift, Summer refuses. Cesaro rolls up Rusev, wins the match. Ziggler lands a Superkick, and Summer takes the gift.

This Sunday, Rusev Vs Ziggler.

Footage from WWE visiting kids at St. Jude.

Big Show is visiting with The Champ backstage.

Moments ago, Ziggler hands Summer Rae a gift.

Rusev is irate over what happened, slammed the door on Summer Rae, she opened the gift and saw some very nice earings.

Earlier tonight, New Day retained their Tag Titles.

They face The Dudley Boyz in 6 days.

Night of Champions Kick-Off match will be Stardust and The Ascension Vs Neville and New Day.

Big Show meets up with The Authority.

They pump up Big Show for his match with Sting.

Our main event is next.

We see last Monday, when Sting took Rollins’ statue, and he destroyed it.

Rollins comes in and goes after Sting, but here comes Cena to save the day. Match ends in a DQ.

HHH was watching this match, and said there has been enough controversy today, so now we have a tag match set up. Sting and Cena Vs Rollins and Big Show.

Sting and Cena win with Sting making Rollins tap out to Scorpion Death Lock.

The show ends with the two heroes looking at Rollins, telling him they are ready for this Sunday.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Hey everyone, this was the season premiere of Monday Night Raw. Forget though that last week was live, new, and not a rerun. But they did give us some big matches tonight.

I loved Sting compete, and they did this so he could get a win tonight, and lose to Seth this Sunday, right?

Also a waste of time for me to see Ric Flair, yet his daughter did not win the title. Cena must have squashed that plan too, like last time when WWE wanted Charlotte to win Divas Title.

6 days away from Night of Champions. Thoughts? Send them to me.

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/31/15….An ICON Returns

Tonight, in Tampa, we hear from Sting.  He will challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Title, at Night of Champions.

What is on Sting’s mind?  Let’s find out, Raw is now.

A big night tonight, with Michael Cole, JBL, Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

Tonight, Ryback faces Big Show, for the IC Title.  Also a Beat the Clock Challenge to determine the new Number One Contender to the Divas Title.  We will also see Dean Ambrose face Braun Strowman, and The Dudley Boyz give us their Raw return and faces The New Day.

But we kick the show off with “The ICON” Sting.

The last time he was in the ring was at Wrestlemania against HHH.  Hunter took Sting to the limit, and he believes he took HHH to the limit.  But that was then, and this is now.  As for Seth Rollins, as good as he is, he isn’t HHH.

Time after time, he has cheated his way to hold on to what is the most prestigious title in the business today, WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

What is even a more of an injustice is Seth truly believes he has earned a statue, and belongs in the same category as Bruno Sammartino, Andre The Giant, and The Ultimate Warrior.

So Sting will prove that Seth is just a little boy in his world.  He will go on to win the one title he hasn’t won in his career, WWE World Heavyweight Title.  Now at Wrestlemania, after his match with HHH, he shook his hand, and Seth isn’t even half the man HHH is.  So at Night of Champions, Seth will enter in Sting’s world.

Rollins watches this backstage, and is irate at what Sting said.  This has been the year of Seth Rollins.  Sting was at Wrestlemania, he saw Seth cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase.  He saw that he took Suplex City and crushed it to the ground.  He also saw his knee hit John Cena’s face.

Stephanie tries to rally around Seth, telling him legends are born through the years.  But she does believe one thing, Rollins isn’t half the man Hunter is.  Not yet anyway, but they are trying to show him how to be.

Seth wants his statue at Night of Champions, and Stephanie tells him to ask Sting about it himself.

Summerslam rematch here is next, Ziggler Vs Rusev.

Ziggler wins by DQ when Dolph had Rusev beat after a Zig Zag.  But Summer Rae came in and interfered, and here comes Lana.

These four have to wrestle in the ring, right?

Tonight, Intercontinental Title is on the line, with Ryback Vs Big Show.  But next, Beat The Clock challenge for Team PCB.

Renee Young checks in with Ziggler, congratulating him on his win.  Technically he won, but he didn’t pin Rusev, so perhaps Summer Rae should stay out of his matches.  Now he needs to take a shower, so excuse me.

As he slips out, Renee Young informs us that The Dudley Boyz will be returning on Raw tonight.

But we see Summer Rae slide right into Ziggler’s locker room.

Team Bella is in the ring, with Nikki informing us we will witness history, as we see 14 days Nikki has to be the longest reigning Divas Champion.

But now, it’s Becky Lynch Vs Alicia Fox.

Becky wins in 3:21, making Alicia tap out to Dis-Arm-Her.

Wow, these are going to be short Diva matches tonight.

Rich Brennan is joined by Ryback.

His thoughts on his match against Big Show.

Two months in the making.  It’s “The Big Guy” against The Big Show.  Ever since he came back, nothing could keep “The Big Guy” down.  Not The Elimination Chamber, not a staph infection, not The Big Show, and not The Miz.

But we see Summer Rae running down the hall, and Ziggler comes out with just his towel.  So did Summer take his clothes?

Moving on….

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

Ryback hits Shellshock, when The Miz distracted Big Show for a moment, long enough for Ryback to win.

Tonight, Ambrose Vs Strowman, and next Beat The Clock Challenge match, with Charlotte Vs Brie.

Wow, Charlotte wins the match with 1:40 left.  Team Bella is letting Nikki down.

Paige is next, later tonight.

They show us the return of The Dudley Boyz last Monday night on Raw.

Renee Young is with those damn Dudleys.

Straight out of Dudleyville, and back to WWE Universe.  They are here for 2 reasons, 1.  They plan to put everyone through tables.  And 2.  Becoming a 10-time World Tag Team Champions.  And in order to do that, they have to go through The New Day.  They are at the head of the table, and they plan on putting them through a table.  So what are they going to do when they are in the middle of the ring, and they hear 20,000 screaming fans scream out Devon, get the tables.

Oh, my brother….TESTIFY!!

Kevin Owens Vs Cesaro is next.

Owens wins the match with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Next, Ambrose Vs Strowman.

We come back, and see Lana and Ziggler.  Summer Rae saw Ziggler naked, but nothing happened.

Lana is not happy, Dolph assures her nothing happened, but she leaves.

Wyatt Family time, get your flashlights ready.

I just wanted to say thank you, thank you Sister Abigail.  He wanted to say thank you for giving Bray the greatest gift, “The Black Sheep” Braun Strowman.

This is his moment, tonight he will share the world on what he stands for.  Because for thousands of years, mankind has guessed when the world comes to an end.  The guessing stops tonight, the 7th trumpet sounds, because we will show us what they are about, unmasked.

Braun takes his mask off, and says this isn’t the beginning, this is the end of the apocalypse.

Reigns causes the DQ when Braun shoves Roman, and Reigns right after Strowman.

But the big dude takes care of both Reigns and Ambrose.  Luke Harper gives Reigns a Superkick.

Strowman puts Ambrose out with a Bearhug sleeper.

Sister Abigail, for good measure by Bray.

We now switch gears (I hate it when they do that), and see earlier tonight Sting had some comments about Seth Rollins that he did not like.

Renee is standing by with the WWE World Champion.

Renee asked Rollins if he found his statue.

It’s about hard work that everyone puts into making this the company they have done over the last year.

Renee asked him about Seth not being in HHH’s league and Seth is discounting that.  He is the only man to be WWE World Champion, and United States Champion.  And tonight, he is calling out Sting to make sure he gets his statue back.

Paige Vs Sasha Banks for Beat The Clock Match tomorrow night.

Despite hitting a RamPAIGE, the clock goes off, and Charlotte faces Nikki Bella at Night of Champions to face Nikki.

Here comes Nikki, showing off her Divas Title./

Seth Rollins will call out Sting, and also tonight, The Dudley Boyz Vs New Day.

Renee Young is with Lana, and we see footage of Summer Rae’s point of view.  She of course tells us a different side of the view.

Lana walks away, crying over what she heard.

New Day Vs Dudleys is up now.

Xavier tells us The Dudley Boyz are a menace to society.  They are a menace to culture, they are a menace to Tag Team Title, but most importantly, they are a menace to tables.

All of the memories we have of sitting at the Thanksgiving table, or playing at the pool table.

They have a special table, so join us as we clap along to save the tables all over the world.

Save the tables.

Tag match is up next.

The Dudleys win with a 3-D, and now we have the special table.

Oh boy.

Xavier Woods saves Big E.

Save the tables.

Coming up next, Rollins calls out Sting.

This Thursday, Miz TV will give us more drama from Ziggler and Lana.

Here comes the champ.

Now let Rollins make something perfectly clear.  Up until last week, he had no problem with Sting.  He revered him as an ICON in this ring.  But then he took his statue, and interfered in his business, and now knows how WCW went out of business.

Rollins isn’t hiding in the shadows.  He is in the middle of this ring, calling out Sting.

He wants Sting to do two things….

  1.  Apologize for what he said earlier, because while HHH was great, Rollins is just as good now, and will be better.
  2.  And he wants his statue back, so Sting come out and tell us where you put his statue

Here comes Stephanie.

She knows that she is the one who told Rollins to call out Sting.  But she suggests he take back what he said about her husband, HHH.

Rollins tells her this is all just a game, because when HHH was running Evolution, and people compared him to Ric Flair, HHH would say he is better.  It’s the same thing.

Stephanie tells Seth that he is the first man to ever be United States Champion, and WWE World Champion.  He is letting Sting get to his hand, Seth Rollins is THE MAN.

So Seth wants his statue back, so come out Sting.

Enter John Cena.

Stephanie isn’t going to throw Cena out of the building, like last week.  But now, we will see how expendable he is.  Cena admits Rollins is good in the ring, but Rollins is also the dumbest human being on the face of the earth.  The Authority are not friends with Rollins.  They only hand-picked him because they knew he would be the only one who would stab his brothers in the back.

Rollins is the “flavor of the month”, they use and abuse people because it’s what’s best for business.  They throw you out like yesterday’s garbage.  Ask Randy Orton, ask Dave Bautista, ask Kane.

See, at Night of Champions, The Authority said every title is on the line.  So at NOC, Cena will invoke his rematch clause, and Rollins will put both of his titles on the line.

So we go with the real person that runs this place, Stephanie, does he get an US Title match at Night of Champions.


Cena celebrates, and here comes Sting.

The show ends with all three men facing off.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

And the HHH-Rollins feud has been planted tonight.  The question remains do we keep doing this until Wrestlemania?  Or do we do this at Survivor Series?  Overall, the show was okay but compared to last week, no contest.

We had our corny storyline, of Ziggler-Lana-Summer Rae triangle, and I can’t think right now they are making Lana look good here.  So, the question is do we do a double turn?  Rusev goes face, Ziggler goes heel, and we get to see Rusev and Lana reunite?

Not much from Sting and Rollins face to face, that has to change.  I do like the idea of Rollins wrestling twice at Night of Champions, and Beat The Clock match made nobody look good.  Sasha Banks, who was the biggest diva star last week, gets hit by a RamPAIGE within 1:40.

But with the clock keep being shown on Nikki’s title reign, will Charlotte, or even Paige demand that title shot on that night, and pins Nikki within seconds of the longest title reign?  That would rock.

It’s great to see The Dudleys come back, together as a team.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/24/15…The Calm Before The Storm

After a huge night at Summerslam, we kick the show off with HHH, who was at WWE World Headquarters, in Stamford, with the WWE World Champion and United States Champion, Seth Rollins.

HHH is proud of Seth’s accomplishments last night.  He tells Seth he is no longer the future of WWE, he is “THE MAN”.

Is he ready to take his place with the likes of Bruno Sammartino, The Ultimate Warrior, and Andre The Giant?

Tonight, Seth Rollins gets his.

We begin Raw.

We are inside The Barclays Center, in Brookyln, New York.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.  Tonight, we get a Summerslam rematch.  The Brothers of Shield will face The Wyatts.

Also, Jon Stewart is here to explain his actions.

But first…..

Here comes the pain!!

We are still in Suplex City.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman.  And he is the pissed off advocate of the ripped-off conqueror.  The BEAST of the Barclays, Brock Lesnar.

So what the hell happened last night?

How did we go from Brock Lesnar forcing The Undertaker tapping out for the first time in 25 years to having a false record that states Undertaker finally got a victory from his client, Brock Lesnar?

It is an undisputed fact his client took The Undertaker into Suplex City.

It is an undisputed fact that his client took “The Phenom” into a Kimura Lock, and tap out.

We see footage of that.

Heyman understands the fairy tale we tell our kids, because he is a father.  Hey kids, Santa Claus does not exist.  There is no Easter Bunny, and kids The Undertaker isn’t indestructible, and his client made him tap out.

It’s like a kid in the corner screaming to leave me alone.  Or in Brock’s case, PLEASE LEAVE ME ALONE.

His client does not blame the ref, who did not see Undertaker tap out.  Or does his client blame the time-keeper who saw compassion for The Undertaker, and ring the bell.

This gets booed.

Should we also remind you Undertaker passed out after his match, again?  Heyman has material that can last for 3 hours.

So we heard The Undertaker scream out, and tap out to the Kimura Lock.  So what does The Undertaker do?  He pulls off a desperate move, again, gives his client a low blow and slaps on Hell’s Gate.  He needed to hear his client tap out, but what does he do?  His client, Brock Lesnar gave him a one finger salute, and told him to FY.

So, enough of the talking, his client is here for a fight.  It’s not to be issued for Wrestlemania.  It’s not for Survivor Series, or Night of Champions.  HIS CLIENT BROCK LESNAR CHALLENGES THE UNDERTAKER TO A FIGHT TONIGHT!!!  TONIGHT!!  TONIGHT!!

We’re waiting for The Undertaker, and we get….


Bo has good news and bad news for Mr. Brock.

The bad news is Brock passed out, and took a nap.  The good news is Brock had a dream about beating The Undertaker.

Brock can make all of his dreams come true.  All he has to do is….


Yeah, that went well.

5 trips to Suplex City, and a F-5, Brock BOLIEVES.

Tonight, on Miz TV, Team PCB.

New Day, New Champs are next.

Oh glorious, we have The New Day coming to the ring, with Xavier Woods blasting a trombone playing “New York”.  Kofi and Big E. are singing.

New Tag Champs are here.

PTP are at commentary, with New Day facing Lucha Dragons.

Kofi and Big E. win, I love this tag team.

Here come The Dudley Boyz!!





Welcome back to Dudleyville, boyz.

They tell PTP they are The Dudley Boyz, and they are back.

Lord, Jon Stewart is getting press all over for what happened last night.

Thank you to Demi Lovato, “Cool For The Summer”, the official theme song for Summerslam.

John Cena granted his 500th Make A Wish this week.  That is very cool.

Rocco Lanzer is at Raw, I hope he is having a great time.

Steph and HHH admire the statue of Seth Rollins.

It’s like Christmas morning for Seth Rollins, and his proud parents HHH and Stephanie McMahon.

Seth thanks them for such a wonderful day, and this is such a better place with these two in charge.

Stephanie tells him Seth is “THE MAN”, and she thanks him.

Big tag match now.  The Brothers Shield Vs The Wyatts.

Brothers Shield win by DQ when we see a new member of The Wyatt Family.  A big guy, who looks like NXT’s Bull Dempsey take out Reigns and Ambrose.

We don’t know the guys’ name, but we see him use a modified sleeper.

Follow The Buzzards!!

I guess that is a guy named Braun Stowman.  Interesting debut, no clue what name they will give him.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw.

Miz Tv time.

He brings out the winners of the first ever Divas Elimination Tag match last night, they are PCB, Paige, Charlotte, and Becky.

They tell Miz it doesn’t matter who pinned, they are cohesive.  Charlotte learned from “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, who was a part of the greatest faction in history, The Four Horsemen.

Miz brings up Flair taught him a Figure Four, and Charlotte tells Miz that he lived up to that.  Miz informs Charlotte he is a 12-time champion.

They are one unit, they are here to prove that this is the era of the female athlete.  They will not back down, and will prove they are just as strong and dominant as any man.

But Team Bella interrupts.

Nikki reminds them she is the Divas Champion, and that title represents who is the real dominance.

Brie tells them they are the face of dominance, the face of empowerment.

We get we want Sasha chants.

Becky asks them who won last night, and Nikki reminds them they have been here for years.

Alicia reminds Becky that she has been here for 9 years.

Nikki tells us wins and losses don’t matter, because in 3 weeks, and 1 day, she will be the longest reigning Divas Champion of all-time.

All six get in their faces, and Miz is trying to take control of this segment.

Miz tells PCB that if they want to make a statement, watch him, and not someone who likes to make hashtags.  All he sees are women that fight like a bunch of girls.

All six fight, and the fans want to see Sasha.

They won’t like what’s next.  Team PCB Vs Team Bella.

Team Bellas win when Nikki distracted Paige, and Alicia Fox picks up the pin.

The crowd was not amused with this match.  They wanted to see Sasha Banks.

A big 8-man tag match is tonight.

King Barrett is in the ring, and will tag with Stardust.

Actually, Stardust attacks Barrett, for losing last night.

This segment got weird, Barrett disappears.

Here comes Neville.

One on one match instead.

Okay, the match never takes place, they fight and when Neville sets up Stardust with Red Arrow, Stardust runs out of the ring.

Coverage of Summerslam through ESPN.  Jon Stewart stole Summerslam?  Really, that’s a headline.

I guess Stewart is up next.

Earlier tonight, The Dudley Boyz returned, and this Thursday night, they return to Smackdown.

Here comes Jon Stewart.

Oh boy!!

The fans are chanting Thank You Stewart.

But apparently last night, he did upset some people.

Some of them are here tonight.  But some people, are happy.

But for those individuals who had to comfort their children, who wanted to know who the mean, old man was.  Why would he do that?

He will tell us.

It was not to help Seth Rollins, or The Authority.  Because in his heart, Jon couldn’t tie the great Ric Flair.  Because in his mind, The Champ is Flair.


Here comes “The Nature Boy”.

Flair approves that decision.  “The Great One” is here.

He appreciates what he did, but he was pulling for John Cena.

Sooner or later, the record will be broken.  And he prefers it’s someone he respects.

You don’t have to like it, but learn to love it.  He respects John Cena.

Jon apologizes for what he did, he just thought he did what had to be done.

But Jon ruined everything, Stewart was saving the 16-time.

But Jon has messed up EVERYTHING.

Here comes Cena.

It’s time to handle business, Stewart and Cena has to talk.

Jon did what he did last night, because he did what was right.  There are some that agree with him.  He is at peace with what Jon did.  But does he realize Seth Rollins is WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and United States Champion.

The same championship he pried from Rusev and he used that as an opportunity, the symbol of excellence to see their favorites get a chance.  Names that these people like, names like Ambrose, Rusev, Cesaro, Owens, and Sami Zayn.

Jon is trying to make this a comedy show, but Cena isn’t hearing any of that.

Stewart told Cena it was a beautiful match, and he respects what he has done with the US Title, and as a fan, he can’t see Cena breaking Flair’s record.

So now The Authority owns the spotlight, they own the championships.  Jon tells Cena he can have his moment, and win it back.

So Cena has to have his moment, and he gives him an Attitude Adjustment.

We see an Andre The Giant statue from Wrestlemania Axxess, and tonight, The WWE World Heavyweight Champion and United States Champion Seth Rollins receives his statue.

But next, big 8-man tag match of everyone else that hasn’t appeared yet on Raw.

Moments ago, Cena gave Stewart an AA.

Renee Young checked on Cena, and confirmed he did an AA on Jon Stewart.  Cena just had a “talk” with Jon.  Later tonight, he will have his “talk” with Seth Rollins.

Ziggler, Cesaro, Ryback, and Orton Vs Rusev, Owens, Big Show, and Sheamus is now.

Big Show accidentally knocks out Sheamus, and Orton hits a RKO for the win.

Rusev and Owens are upset over what happened, so Big Show had enough.

Owens and Rusev lay out Big Show, and walk away.

And now Team Orton comes back in.

Ziggler hits Superkick.  Cesaro and Ryback lift Big Show up, and Orton hits a RKO.

A tough week for Big Show here.

We see footage of last night’s Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar ending.

One day, we will see Taker Vs Lesnar III.

Bruno Sammartino has his statue, and tonight, Seth Rollins will be immortalized.

Earlier tonight, we see a new member of the Wyatts be introduced.

Bray warned Roman about him being a poison, and Bray will do whatever he takes to eliminate Reigns.  Take his so-called “buddy” Dean Ambrose.  He selfishly brought him to this fight, and he paid for that.

Bray introduces us to the newest member of The Wyatt Family, Braun Stowman.  He is Abigail’s black sheep.

John Cena is on his way to confront Rollins, but Stephanie and HHH interrupt.  Stephanie mocks Cena for lifting a man 100 pounds lighter than he is, to show how much of a “sore loser” he is.  Cena told her he is about to upgrade.  Stephanie tells John that nobody is going to interrupt this moment for Seth, especially if he’s not here.

Security escorts him out of the building.

The Ultimate Warrior had his statue this past year, now….Seth Rollins will get his.

Here comes Stephanie and HHH to present Seth Rollins his statue.

It’s Vince McMahon’s birthday, he is 70 years old.  Happy Birthday Vince!!

We are all going to sing Happy Birthday.

When you look for someone to honor, you look for someone who will work hard.  That man must be the first person in the building.  Someone who hustles, that is Seth Rollins.

If you’re looking for someone who has insured your faith in them, that would be loyalty.  That is Seth Rollins.

If you’re looking for someone who will pay back to the ones that believed in you.  That is respect.

Hustle, loyalty, respect.  That is Seth Rollins.

But there is one more thing, that some are not and that is a winner.

Someone who will win at all cost, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and the United States Champion.  Seth Rollins.

Here he comes, The Champ Is Here.

Seth thanks Steph and HHH for this honor, he wants to thank the WWE fans.  This is an honor, joining The Mount Rushmore of WWE.

This is like going to Yankee Stadium, and seeing their Mount Rushmore.  Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth.  This is like what Brooklyn has, your Brooklyn Nets.  Wait a second, nobody is good there.

But heroes become legends, and legends never die.

Last night, Seth made history, defeating John Cena and becoming the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and United States Champion.

So tonight, he becomes immortal.

Now he has said some horrible things to John Cena.  He called him a disease, and Seth will eradicate the cure, and he meant every word.  But make no mistake about it, for the last 10 years, John Cena has been “THE MAN”.  But in order to be the man, you have to beat the man.

And he did just that.  And Trips was right, he is no longer the future, he is “THE MAN”.

And after he main events Wrestlemania, after Wrestlemania.  And after he dies, his statue will remain in tact.

So without further adieu, Brooklyn New York are you ready?  I said, Brooklyn, New York, are you ready?


The curtain comes up, and it’s….


Seth Rollins goes after Sting, but Sting counters, hits a Stinger Splash, he takes him out of the ring, and holds the WWE World Title.

Sting wants a shot, and this is where we end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Wow, what an ending to the show.  This was a very memorable show, a night of returns.  The Dudley Boyz, an appearance by “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, and an appearance by Sting.

He wants a shot at the title, will we see it?

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me, what a night.

WWE Summerslam 8/23/15

The biggest party of the summer continues tonight.  We are five minutes away from the Summerslam Kick-Off party to begin.

We are live in the Barclays Center.  Renee Young welcomes us to the Summerslam Kick-Off show.  She is joined by Booker T, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves.

Time for the Social Media Lounge, with Tom Phillips.

Tonight’s guest is Stephen Amell and Neville.

We are heard Jon Stewart is hosting Summerslam.

Tonight, Ambrose and Reigns face Wyatt and Harper.

Video setting up that match.

John Cena is backstage talking with Jon Stewart.  He brings up Jon’s past with Seth Rollins.  Jon asked John to sign an autograph for his son, but it’s meant to sell for E-Bay.


John Cena Vs Seth Rollins.  Title for Title, winner takes all.

Cena Vs Rollins video is showing.

Footage from WWE being in New York this week.

Tonight, Cesaro Vs Kevin Owens will take place.

We see their altercation 3 weeks ago.

Kevin Owens joins the panel.

He confronts Booker T when Booker suggested Kevin is jealous of Cesaro.

Owens tells Byron he will take care of the Cesaro Section tonight.

Tonight, 3-team Divas Elimination match.

Video is being shown.

Who is going to win tonight’s big Diva’s match?

Also tonight, Fatal 4-Way match for the Tag Team Titles.  Prime Time Players Vs Lucha Dragons Vs Los Matadores Vs New Day.

Also tonight, IC Title Triple Threat match with Ryback facing The Miz and Big Show.

Footage from 2 weeks ago, when Ryback returned to Raw.

Also tonight, Randy Orton Vs Sheamus.

Rich Brennaman is standing by with Sheamus.

Sheamus tell us the only thing that truly matters to WWE is Money in the Bank briefcase.  2 weeks ago, he was very close of being a 2-time WWE Champion, but Randy Orton ruined those plans.  So tonight, he will give him Brogue Kick, after Brogue Kick, after Brogue Kick.  And he will take out “The Viper”, then fulfill his dream of being WWE Champion.

You know why that is?  Because it is what it is.

Jo-Jo will speak with Stephanie McMahon now.

Stephanie brings up this match will showcase what is the most dominant diva team at the moment.  A few weeks ago, she started the Diva Revolution, and women have played such a huge part in sports lately.  Ronda Rousey, UFC Women’s Batenweight Champion.  Serena Williams, is the most dominant Tennis player right now.

She can’t pick a winner, but the winner will go to the spoils.

Social Media Lounge will come up next, with Neville and Arrow.

Neville and Arrow will stop Stardust and King Barrett at all costs.

We now see Dolph Ziggler’s return to Raw last week.

Ziggler Vs Rusev face off, tonight.

Who wins tonight?  Brock Lesnar or The Undertaker?

Summerslam starts in 5 minutes.

Jon Stewart begins the show.

Jon tells us this is a historic night, 10 of the biggest matches we will see.  He has spent 16 years talking about politics, it’s nice to be back to reality.  The difference is the wrestlers respect the audience.  He now is giving us a list of wrestlers who will be here tonight.

Come on, get with the show.

Jon is still upset at Brock ending “The Streak” at Wrestlemania.  He wanted to interview Brock, and tell him, but he needs some backup.

None other than WWE Hall of Famer, Mick Foley.

Foley has a funny story here.  When Jon called him, and he asked Mick to interview Brock, it could have been his fuzzy ear, because he thought Jon was referring to The Rock.

Because if he had heard him right, he never would have agreed to it.

So Mick Foley is afraid of Brock Lesnar?

Yes he is, Jon reminds Mick he had wrestled The Undertaker in Hell in a Cell at King of the Ring, fell from 100 feet.

Yes, that did happen, 17 years ago, before Jon had done “The Daily Show”.  The one place Mick has never been to is Suplex City, and that isn’t happening now.

On to the show then.

The 28th annual Summerslam is live in Brooklyn, New York, inside the Barclays Center.  JBL, Michael Cole, and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show.

Orton Vs Sheamus kicks things off.

Sheamus wins the match with 2 Brogue Kicks, the crowd still hates Sheamus’ hair though.

2 guys from Draft Kings attend Summerslam, okay moving on.

WWE Tag Title match is up now.

Prime Time Players Vs Los Matadores Vs Lucha Dragons Vs New Day.

New Day are here to teach us about something called hip hop.

Now they are singing us about New Day, shades of “Empire State of Mind”.


New Day picks up the win when Titus did all of the work, Kofi made a blind tag and pinned one of Los Matadores.

New Day Rocks!!

More Jon Stewart, with Arrow and Neville.  Telling them he is close with Undertaker.

The lights go out, and we see Taker walking by.

Jon is selling more stuff on E-Bay.

Rusev Vs Ziggler is up now.

This ends in a double countout that saw all 4 people involved, and ends with Summer Rae and Lana fighting each other, on top of Ziggler and Rusev.

Expect a mixed tag match at Night of Champions.

King Barrett and Stardust Vs Neville and Amell, now.

Stephen Amell did more selling than I thought he would, but Arrow and Neville win, when Amell takes out Stardust, and Neville nails a Red Arrow on Barrett.

IC Title match is up now.  Ryback Vs Big Show Vs The Miz.

Ryback steals the pin when Big Show knocks The Miz out, and Ryback threw Show out of the ring.

More Jon Stewart footage, trying to confront Brock Lesnar.

He runs into Paul Heyman instead.

We are live in Brooklyn, New York, at the Barclays Center.

Tag Team action is set now.  The Wyatt Family Vs Ambrose and Reigns.

No heel turn by Ambrose here, just a more or less domination from the Brothers of Shield.  Reigns gives Wyatt a Spear, after Dirty Deeds by Ambrose.

Cena Vs Rollins, winner takes all is next.

Wow, they truly went with this.  Seth Rollins just became the new United States Champion, and is WWE World Champion with help by Jon Stewart?

We had the ref bump, and Jon came out with a chair, acting like he was torn about who to hit, and he nails Cena with it, with Rollins using a Pedigree to pin Cena.

Fantastic match, just a sad state of affairs that John Cena has to job to Jon Stewart.

The Summerslam panel discuss matters.

Divas Revolution tag match is up now.

Team B.A.D. is eliminated now, when Brie pins Tamina.

Team PCB win when Becky hits a Pump Handle Slam, pinning Brie Bella.  This was going to be an elimination match, but they changed the rules to just give us 2 falls.

A bit of a letdown after last night’s fantastic Women’s match, but considering the women involved, it was okay.

Then again, Sasha Banks, who wrestled last night didn’t do much tonight.

Cesaro Vs Owens is up now.

Owens wins a big match with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

The announcers called this a must-win match for Owens’ career.

WWE Night of Champions is on September 20th, in 4 weeks.

Our main event, Brock Lesnar Vs The Undertaker.  A match 16 months in the making is now.

Wow, what an intense main event that delivered in everything possible, except the ending.

Brock had Taker in his Kimura Submission move, and Undertaker actually tapped out.  The bell-ringer rang the bell, but Charles Robinson didn’t call for the match to end, he screamed at the bell-ringer for this, and Undertaker hits a low blow and slaps Hell’s Gate.

Brock would not tap out though, and even flipped Taker off, but he did pass out.  Charles calls for the bell, when Brock passes out, and Undertaker picks up the win.

Heyman rings the bell, telling us all we saw it, the bell ringer saw, and Brock Lesnar is the real winner.

We end the night with Brock walking out with Heyman.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

So that is how the match ends, we have our 2 biggest matches end in such bullshit ways.  But both matches did their thing.

WWE did a great job of making this important, and give Undertaker credit, he looks in fantastic shape.  But I hated the ending.

So here we go, what will happen tomorrow night?  What did you think of the show?  Send me your thoughts, and I will talk to you tomorrow night for Raw.

Hopefully, the show will be good and we will see the build to Night of Champions.

NXT Takeover: Brooklyn 8/22/15

Tonight, on the eve of Summerslam, NXT takes over Brooklyn.  We begin the night with NXT Kick-off show.

Here we go.

We are live in Brooklyn, in the Barclays Center.

Renee Young is with Corey Graves, Byron Saxton, and Lita.

We see Kevin Owens had entered the building earlier tonight.  Later, Owens Vs Balor in a Ladder Match, for the NXT World Title.

Also tonight, Baron Corbin faces Samoa Joe, in a Number One Contenders match.

Corbin Vs Joe video is being shown.

Joe is standing by, does he have any concern for Baron Corbin?

Tonight, Baron won’t have those opportunities, because he faces Joe man to man, face to face.  Tonight, Joe will put Corbin down, and he will put him sleep.

Joe has been wrestling all over the world for 16 years.

Tonight, Apollo Crews makes his NXT in-ring debut.

Also tonight, double main event for the NXT Women’s Title.  Bayley Vs Sasha Banks.

Bayley Vs Banks video is being shown.

Bayley has so much to prove tonight.  I have never been a fan of the gimmick, but tonight, they have a chance to just let Bayley do what she does best, wrestle.

Greg Hamilton and Dasha Fuentes are outside the Barclays Center, with the fans.

NXT Tag Titles are on the line tonight.  Murphy and Blake face The Vaudevillians.

Lita is teasing that she might come out with The Vaudevillians tonight to counter Alexa Bliss.

A SUV pulls up, and it’s Neville and Finn Balor.

Cesaro stops by to wish Balor luck, he faces Owens tomorrow night.

Tonight, Tyler Breeze face Jushin Thunder Liger, for the first time in NXT.

Tyler is with Rich Brennan, who is taking a photo shoot.

Tyler puts a Jushin Liger mask on Rich’s face.

Balor Vs Owens video is playing.

NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn starts now.

HHH is in the ring, it started as a whisper, until we started to blurt it out now.  We heard you, and started this quest, you wanted more.  We told you NXT is the future, you said the future is now.

And we pan to the crowd with an amazing house.  We are NXT.

Our first match is Tyler Breeze Vs Jushin Thunder Liger.

Rich Brennan, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton welcomes us to the show.

Liger wins with a Liger Bomb.  Amazing Liger is 50 years old, and he can still fly like the best.

Amazing start to the show.

The Wolfpack is in the house.  Great ovation for Hall, Nash, and X-Pack.

Bayley is getting hugs from Charlotte and Becky Lynch.  A big night for Bayley.

Nia Jax is coming soon to NXT.

NXT Tag Title match is up now.  The Vaudevillians Vs Blake and Murphy.

No Lita, but Blue Pants came out to counter Bliss.

The Vaudevillians win the Tag Titles win with a Whirling Dervish, after Blue Pants took care of Alexa Bliss.

We are in The Barclays Center, a big WWE weekend.

Earlier today, we see the entrance of Finn Balor, Neville, and Cesaro.

Our next match is “The Perfect 10” Tye Dillinger Vs Apollo Crews.

Apollo wins with a Standing Shooting Star Press.

Impressive that a guy his size can do the high-flying.  I loved his dropkick.

NXT GM William Regal is welcoming us, he is introducing us to the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.  A tournament starts in 2 weeks, with the winners being declared on the next NXT Takeover, October 7th.

We miss “The American Dream”.

The 4 Tough Enough finalists are at ringside, and coming up next, we will see Samoa Joe Vs Baron Corbin.

Joe wins with the Coquina Clutch.  Corbin doesn’t tap out, but he passes out.

I liked that ending, because Corbin is still protected.

The stars are out tonight.  Sgt. Slaughter, Ric Flair, Kana, and of course Team B.A.D. are there to watch their girl, Sasha Banks.

Enter Stephanie McMahon.

15,000+ are watching this show at Barclays Center.  Millions are watching at WWE Network.  This is history, and a few weeks ago, Stephanie started a Divas Revolution on Raw.  But the truth is, it started in NXT.  HHH said it best, NXT Women’s division isn’t a part of the main event, they are the main event.

And our NXT Women’s Title match is up now.  Bayley Vs Sasha Banks.

Bayley defeats Sasha Banks in what will go down as one of the best women’s matches of the year.  She wins with a Bayley to Belly.

I might be a fan of Bayley after all, if she continues down this path as a serious competitor.

Charlotte and Becky come out to congratulate Bayley, and we see Sasha giving Bayley a big hug too.  An emotional moment, and we also get a mention of The Four Horsewomen, which all four started together in NXT developmental.

Just an awesome moment, and Sasha has a match tomorrow night at Summerslam.

Earlier tonight, HHH made an announcement that NXT will be touring in the UK in December.

Our main event is up now.  Kevin Owens Vs Finn Balor, for the NXT World Title, in a Ladder Match.

Kevin’s family is in the front row, Kevin also brought up during his entrance that when WWE Network started, he was at home watching NXT.  But now, he’s main eventing on NXT, which says it all.

Finn retains his title in a brutal match here, with a Coup De Gras off the top of the ladder.  And before that, Balor pulled off a Belly to Back Suplex on the ladder.  Kevin looked like he was dead, and he has a match tomorrow night.

Incredible match here, and Finn celebrates the win, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Once again, the effort was there, the payoff was amazing.  All 6 matches clicked.  It was special to see Jushin Liger in a WWE ring, and that just kicked the show off.

The two main events though was what brought us to the dance.  I have to give the nod to Banks Vs Bayley as best match of the night, but Owens Vs Balor was amazing too.

I need to start paying attention to NXT again on a weekly basis.

Summerslam is tomorrow, so those women and men better bring it, because NXT Brooklyn set the bar very high.

What were your thoughts on the show?  If you have WWE Network, see this event, it’s worth it to see it again.  I will talk to you all tomorrow, for Summerslam.

Impact Wrestling 8/19/15….Turning Point

Tonight, Jeff Jarrett is in charge again, and we will have a TNA World Heavyweight Title match.  EC3 will defend his title against P.J. Black.  Gail Kim will take on The Dollhouse inside Six Sides of Steel.  Eric Young Vs Chris Melendez, Impact Wrestling is now.

The Jarretts make their way to the ring.

Before they talk about tonight’s show, let’s talk about last week’s show.  The world has been buzzing since last week about Global Force Wrestling.  From the Grand Slam Tour, to the Impact Show, against TNA wrestlers.  So we will take it one step closer.  For the first time tonight, a Global Force wrestler will vie to become new TNA World Heavyweight Champion.  And we will keep on going….

Here comes EC3.

This is not GFW Jeff, this is TNA.  The house the Carters built.  Jeff doesn’t want any piece of EC3.  His match against PJ Black?  Nope, it won’t happen.

Karen Jarrett explains EC3 who Jeff is.  The man who formed Global Force Wrestling, and before that, he formed TNA.  So is this animosity EC3 has because his aunt Dixie chose Jeff to run this place over Ethan?  Bully Ray gets knocked out, as did Drew Galloway, so who could gain more by taking them out.

Ethan wonders then if she is accusing Ethan of anything, and Karen is just stating the facts.  Ethan denies any wrongdoing, and tells “Toots” he won’t see her again, and threatens to pack his bags, and leave the building.

Jeff tells EC3 he will go to the back, and tell Aunt Dee to sanction this match, since he still has a bit of ownership here, so he has 2 options, either A.  Defend the title, or B.  Stripped of the title.

Josh Matthews and The Pope are in the studios, going over last week’s festivities, including Drew Galloway being knocked out.

Earlier tonight, the camera dude catches up with Drew.  He doesn’t know who knocked out Bully Ray, but he believes Eli Drake took him out, and tonight, he gets a No DQ match with him, and he is planning pay back.

Our first match is the Open Mic Challenge between Bram Vs Mr. Anderson.

Mr. Anderson wins the match in what was a ladder match that had tables and chairs too.  Bram grabbed the mic first, but Anderson nails a Mic Check on Bram, and nails him many times with the mic to win.

A good fight here.

Roode is in the back, telling Jarrett he disrespected him last week, he wants to know what he has plans for Bobby tonight, Jarrett needs to see Dixie and walks off.

EC3 is irate that Jeff Jarrett accuses him of doing anything with taking out Bully Ray?  Aunt Dee, they have had their problems, but do the right thing for TNA.  Don’t strip him of the title.

The Revolution comes out to the ring.

Now Storm is going to say something we may not understand.  The Revolution is a family.  What they lack in blood, they make up for committment.  Everything The Revolution has given, Storm gives them opportunities.  People say Storm was too hard on that man who used to stand with them, so how about that man comes face to face and speak out.  Khoya, come on out.

The man formerly known as Khoya comes out.

Maybe Storm was too hard on him, James wants him to come to the ring, and nothing will happen to him.  Storm just wants to talk man to man.

Storm brings up he wanted to be hard on him to test his loyalty, to see how bad he wants to be a part of The Revolution.

These people don’t care about him, he came to this country, he couldn’t speak any english.  He told him that all he wanted to do is provide for his family.

Which is why Storm wants him to point out his finger to the sky.

He did everything for The Revolution, but The Revolution did nothing for him.

His name is….

His name is Khoya.

His name is Mahabali Shera, and he is just like the fans.  He likes to dance, and he believes the fans want to dance.

So he does dance, with the fans.

He teaches Manik how to dance, and Manik looks like he is having fun.

But Storm tells him he is like a joke, and Shera tells him he wants to fight.

But Abyss helps Storm out, and lays him out with a Chokeslam.  They order Manik to use a Frogsplash, and he reluctantly does that.

Storm hits a Last Call Superkick, and Storm screams at Mahabali sooner or later, he will cut his throat.

Coming up next, Six Sides of Steel, Gail Kim Vs The Dollhouse.

JB is in the back with PJ Black.

First week in, he wins King of the Mountain Title, second week in, he has a TNA World Title shot.  EC3, he knows is trying to get out of the match, but do the right thing.

Eric Young calls PJ a thief, and tells him he will take what is his.

The Dollhouse Vs Gail Kim is now.

Gail Kim defeated The Dollhouse with Eat Defeat.

Earlier tonight, The Jarretts threaten EC3 he will defend his title tonight, or get stripped of the title.

He is discussing with Dixie about the main event tonight.

EC3 intervenes, questioning if Dixie really wants to give one of his guys a title shot against him.

Aunt Dee tells him either he defends the title, or is stripped.  It’s his decision.

EC3 Vs PJ Black is schedule, but next, Eli Drake Vs Drew Galloway in a No DQ match.

Moments ago, Gail Kim defeated The Dollhouse inside Six Sides of Steel.

Gail Kim is looking for Taryn Terrell.

Will we see EC3 Vs PJ Black tonight?

EC3 and Tyrus speak about this decision, Matt Hardy tells EC3 he is still coming for his title.  EC3 tells him if he has a problem with him, he has to deal with Tyrus.

Hardy Vs Tyrus tonight.

Eli Drake denies anything to do with taking out Galloway, and our match is set now.

Drew Galloway wins the match putting Eli through a table.

They are talking like this is the final of the feud.

Taryn Terrell is running from Gail Kim, and is met by Velvet Sky.  Velvet tells Taryn she is done.

Will EC3 Vs PJ Black happen tonight?

Velvet and Taryn find Gail, and Velvet tell us paybacks are a bitch.

Eric Young come out to the ring.

Jeff Jarrett doesn’t know what he’s doing.  TNA board of directors do not know what they are doing.  The TNA World Heavyweight Title runs through him.

Here comes Chris Melendez.

He won’t go away, and he wants a match.

Eric tells him he has nothing he wants, he’s not in Eric’s level.  But wait a second, he is a big game hunter, and he does want something, Chris’ leg.

Chris accepts, and EY takes a cheap shot, but the young hero turns the corner, and is on top.

Hardy Vs Tyrus is next.

Jarrett has something else he wants to go over with Dixie. But Dixie wants to see if Ethan accepts the match first.

Hardy vs Tyrus is now.

Hardy wins with 2 Twist of Fates. But is interrupted by EC3, who nails him with the title. He accepts the challenge, and calls for the best GFW wrestler they have.

Our title match is next.

EC3 wins with a One Percenter, in what was a good match.

Jeff and Dixie are watching, Jeff wants to keep the ball rolling, and proposes that Jeff runs Impact Wrestling week to week.

Dixie wants time to think about it, and will let him know next week.

Next week, 3 titles are on the line. Velvet Sky faces Brooke, for the Knockout Title. The Wolves face The Revolution for Tag Titles. Tigre Uno defends his X-Division Title against DJ Z and Sonjay Dutt, and Drew Galloway wants answers about who attacked him.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I loved the ending of the main event, EC3 and PJ Black are two of the best young wrestlers, and they proved it.

But anything else just didn’t feel like a special show. We even used to have a nice intro for these free-PPV shows, but we don’t get that anymore.

This was just an okay show, and it should have been better.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/17/15…Summerslam Week

We are live in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we see Stephanie McMahon and HHH, The Authority kick the show off.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Monday Night Raw.  Tonight feels like Christmas morning, before you open the gifts.  Because we are 6 days away from Summerslam, the biggest party of the summer.

And we get a bit of a shill, we get it.  WWE Network is just $9.99 a month.

Careers will be defined, scores will be settled, and history will be made.

We begin the card with the biggest rematch, even bigger than Wrestlemania.  The Undertaker Vs “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar.

And tonight, both Brock and Taker will be in the same ring.

And of course, Title Vs Title, Winner take all, John Cena Vs Seth Rollins.

Tonight, we get a contract signing between Cena and Rollins.

Also at Summerslam, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns takes on Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper.

We get to see Luke Harper tonight face Roman Reigns.

We see the Three-Team Divas Elimination Match, at Summerslam.

Tonight, Nikki Bella will face “The Boss” Sasha Banks.

Summerslam will be 4 hours, 9 matches, available on WWE Network.

Stephanie informs us John Stewart is the host of Summerslam.

The Road to Summerslam starts right now.

It’s Orton and Cesaro Vs Owens and Sheamus, now.

Orton and Cesaro win when Orton hits a RKO, and pins Sheamus.

16 months in the making, at Summerslam it will be Lesnar Vs Undertaker.

They will be in the same building tonight.  We see what happened at Battleground, when “The Deadman” came back to cost Lesnar his WWE World Title match.

The next night on Raw, we see that wicked brawl the two men had on Raw.

We hear from The Deadman, next.

We see smoke, we hear the druids and hear Undertaker’s voice.

When the reaper calls your name, there is no remorse.  When the reaper calls your name, it’s over.  Lesnar, your name is called.  And at Summerslam, you will never rest in peace.

This Sunday, Summerslam starts an hour early, at 7:00 PM Eastern, featured on WWE Network.

At Summerslam, we will have Champion Vs Champion, Seth Rollins Vs John Cena.

We see footage from last month, when Rollins kicked Cena, and broke John’s nose.

We will have a contract signing, tonight.

Rollins is with The Authority.  The only thing Cena hasn’t done is look him in the face, and accept the challenge of Title Vs Title.

Rollins has one more favor, after he defeats Cena at Summerslam, he feels like he deserves a spot of statue of legends at WWE headquarters.

They tell him that if he brings back both championships, consider it done.

Dean Ambrose is heading to the ring.

Reigns Vs Harper is up now.

Reigns wins with a spear, a good match between these two.  Ambrose and Reigns are ready for this Sunday.

Bray Wyatt checks on his brother, lights go out, and he says to follow the buzzards.

John Stewart will be the host of Summerslam.

Tamina is in the ring, scheduled to face Becky Lynch, one on one.

Becky wins with The Disarmer, making Tamina tap out.

Later tonight, Sasha Banks Vs Nikki Bella.

Also tonight, contract singing between John Cena and Seth Rollins.  And tonight, it’s Brock Lesnar’s Homecoming.

Lana is doing commentary, and we will see another Rusev Vs Mark Henry match.

Mark tried, but a second Accolade did him in.

The Bulgarian flag pops out, with Rusev’s face.

Lana heads to the ring, wanting to fight Summer Rae.

The heels come off, and they are ready.

Lana slaps Summer’s face, and orders Rusev to come inside the ring.

Ziggler chants, and here he comes.

Ziggler executes DDT, and almost kicks Summer Rae, as Rusev hides behind her, but Lana kicks Summer, and Ziggler kicks Rusev.

Now that was awesome.

Now they make out, and Rusev is furious.  He’s still not over her.

Tonight, official contract signing between Cena and Rollins.

Moments ago, we see the slap that shocked the world, and the return of Ziggy.

Ziggler and Lana are confronted by Jo-Jo.

That reaction was awesome, which is why the job is the best of the world.  Ziggler wants Rusev one on one, at Summerslam.

Ziggler is back, it’s too bad they are just too good.

Video now showing The Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar.

Brock Lesnar’s homecoming is tonight.

Feed Me More!!

“The Big Guy” is ready.

Well, it’s supposed to be Ryback Vs The Miz.

Big Show joins commentary, but Miz is not impressed by Big Show going to Hollywood.  This Sunday, we will see a star, front and center, winning the Intercontinental Championship.  Now he wants us to shut up while he takes off his sunglasses.

Ryback handled Miz, with ease.  Shellshock.

This weekend, Triple Threat match, but right now Ryback wants Big Show in the ring.

But Big Show is not interested, and he walks away.

Up next, official contract singing between Cena and Rollins.

HHH and Stephanie are here to officiate the contract signing, so here comes Rollins and Cena.

Seth is feeling their love for the warm introduction.  But before they start that, he wants to congratulate Steph and HHH for what will go down as the greatest Summerslam of all time.

And he wants to congratulate himself for having that statue of himself after he beats Cena at Summerslam.

But he wants to congratulate the fans, give yourselves a good hand.  It’s not often you know you will see a historic event.  It’s not like you go to a baseball game, knowing you will see a no-hitter, unless you live in Minnesota.

But I digress, he will defeat Cena, and become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and United States Champion at the same time.

The fans give us a Let’s Go Cena, and Cena Sucks.  Seth brings up a fellow person from Minnesota, with Bob Dylan singing a song “The Time has come for a change”.

And that is very fitting, because for the last decade, Cena has been at the top of the mountain, and he loves playing the role of “Superman”, making sure nobody takes him off the top.

John Cena is a disease, and with one kick, he sent his face down to shattered pieces.  He is going to inject the serum that will free us of John Cena, because he is a disease, and Seth Rollins is the cure.

So Cena continues to disrespect Rollins’ title reign, well John, Seth will take him out at Summerslam.  Cena is too much of a coward that he couldn’t answer to Rollins’ challenge?  He had to go to Tough Enough, thousands of miles away from Rollins.

And here comes Cena.

Rollins is trying to defend his title, when half the arena is chanting let’s go Cena, the other half is chanting Cena sucks, and the fans don’t give a damn about Seth Rollins.

Sad thing is The Champ is there, and he’s doing a cheap imitation of John Cena.

It’s time you do something, HHH hand-picked Rollins to be the future of the WWE, and it’s time he does something about it.  HHH is The Cerebral Assassin, he doesn’t do that, unless he truly believes in you.  He gave you everything you need, including The Pedigree.  But you will realize something he has known the last decade, The real champ is here, and he ain’t going anywhere.

Rollins talks about the knee that took out Cena?  The Authority and doctors had told him not to show up last week, so it gave him an extra week to think what he’s going to do.  Payback, he is a 15-time World Champion.  So he will defeat “Captain Morgan” this Sunday, and become a 16-time World Heavyweight Champion.  HHH knows about this, because the record is held by his mentor, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair.

The issue here though is this, HHH was never Ric Flair’s bitch.  This Sunday, Cena will make Seth his.

Cena signs, and walks off.

No comeback at all, wow.

This Sunday, Title Vs Title, winner take all.  Cena Vs Rollins.

Banks Vs Nikki Bella is tonight.

8-man tag match featuring New Day and Los Matadores Vs Prime Time Players and Lucha Dragons.

Dragons and PTP win, moving on.

Earlier tonight, the return of Dolph Ziggler.

It’s official, Ziggler Vs Rusev, now giving us 10 matches.

Also at Summerslam, Stephen Amell and Neville Vs Stardust and King Barrett.

Some amazing artwork that has shown us the Amell and Neville Vs Barrett and Stardust match.

Now a creepy promo from Stardust and King Barrett.

Nikki Bella Vs Sasha Banks is now.

Sasha makes Nikki tap out to The Bank Statement.  The biggest win of her career.

Team PCB is standing by with Renee Young, who makes her only appearance of the night.

They will take care of business this Sunday night and be the last team standing.

And they will do it with a little Flair….WOOOOOOO

Footage from Wrestlemania 30, Brock beat The Streak.

Brock Lesnar’s homecoming is next.

This Saturday night, NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn is at 9:00.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman, and he is the host for tonight’s homecoming.  Because he is the advocate to the only being in history to ever defeat The Streak, the one who defeated the biggest Hollywood superstar to become the undisputed WWE World Champion.  The one who defeated the most decorated UFC fighter to be the Heavyweight Champion.  And the one who held the NCAA World Heavyweight Championship, representing the University of Minnesota, Brock Lesnar.

A hero coming home.

Suplex City chants.

Heyman is singing to Lesnar, about Taker, “The Conqueror Marches On”.

Gong, Gong.

The lights go out, comes back, but no Taker.

It’s all a ruse.

Suplex City chants.

That’s the best you got, jedi mind tricks?  Look at this Obi-Wan.  This Sunday at Summerslam, you can get God and the devil to team up, and he swears to you, his client will take all three to Suplex City.

Brock, ever since the ref counted to three, he has dreamt about taking revenge at his client, Brock Lesnar.  And then at Battleground, when he came to get his revenge, he gave Brock a low blow.

The reason?  The moment Undertaker locked eyes with Brock he knew he couldn’t go from conquered to conqueror.  Undertaker has never beaten Brock Lesnar, and that will continue after Summerslam.

Undertaker fears Brock.  Now, his client isn’t taking Undertaker lightly.  The shape The Undertaker was in when he took Brock to fight, Heyman knows any man, Taker can put them in a Tombstone Piledriver, but he’s not fighting a man, he is fighting a beast.

This Sunday night at Summerslam, his client does not respect his accomplishments.  He won’t recognize his World Title reigns, or the historic dominance Undertaker has had, because this Sunday….


The lights come back on, and it’s Undertaker in the ring, giving Brock a low blow, and a Chokeslam.

Tombstone Piledriver!!

Undertaker standing over Brock, and just stares at Heyman.

Crowd is booing Taker, because this is Brock’s hometown.

Taker bows down, The Phenom sees revenge.

The show ends with Taker on the top ramp.  We are ready for this Sunday.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A strong show tonight that makes Summerslam look important.  I wish WWE would make their Raw’s feel special like this one.

This is indeed a big week for WWE, we have NXT Takeover this Saturday night, and Summerslam Sunday night.  No mention of the Kick-Off show, but I am sure they will start things off at 6:30, maybe even at 6:00.

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

Impact Wrestling 8/12/15…When Worlds Collide…TNA Vs GFW

Earlier today, Jeff Jarrett and his GWF family entered the Impact Zone.  Tonight, Double-J is in charge.

We will see Tigre Uno Vs Sonjay Dutt.  We will also see Brian Myers and Trevor Lee face The Wolves.

Awesome Kong Vs Lei-D Tapa, and 5 men compete for King of the Mountain Title.

Jeff and Karen Jarrett come out to the ring.

Jeff wants to thank for the phone call he received, and he is now the newest member of TNA Hall of Fame.  And now his TNA career is finally over.  He has founded Global Force Wrestling.  This is about competing at the highest ability.  We have rivalries in sports, and tonight, we create our new rivalry.

Tonight, this is the best of the best.  The best of Global will compete against the best of TNA.

Tigre Uno will face off Sonjay Dutt.  We will also see Lei’D Tapa Vs Awesome Kong.  We will also see a dream tag team of Brian Myers and Trevor Lee Vs The Wolves.  And in our main event, King of the Mountain….

Here comes Eric Young.

Eric doesn’t care about the fans, he doesn’t care about Jarrett.  He is King of the World.  Jeff is looking at God, and he decides the fate of the World Title not once, but twice.  He decided Kurt Angle should leave, and never come back.  He took a war hero’s leg, just because he felt like it.  Jarrett will play booker, and Eric will take that title.  He will take his pride, he will take his honor.

Eric doesn’t work for Jeff, which means he can kick his ass anytime he wants.  He said he wouldn’t do this for himself, he would do it for the fans.  This is a title who would be defended multiple organizations.  So he will put King of the Mountain Title on the line tonight, in the first ever King of the Mountain on Impact.

Eric Young will be the first participant.  EY attacks Jarrett, but here comes Team GFW.  However Team TNA comes out, and we have a fight as we go to commercial break.

Moments ago, we see the big fight between TNA Vs GFW.

Team GFW are rallying the troops.  Jarrett tells them this is about competing, this isn’t an invasion.  Just win your matches.

The Pope and Josh Matthews are in the studios.

An update on Bully Ray, he has no timetable to return.

Lei’D Tapa Vs Awesome Kong is now.

Royal Red is with Tapa, and this is the queen Lei’D Tapa.  So anyone come on out to her ring, and bow down.

Kong heads to the ring.

This was a double count out, and the fight continues to the back.  Kong slams Tapa to the floor.

King of the Mountain Match.  So far it’s Eric Young, Drew Galloway, and P.J. Black.

We get a backstage moment from the wrestler formerly known as Justin Gabriel.

He is here to represent Global Wrestling, but he is also here to show everyone what P.J. Black is about.

P.J. has a phone call to take.

Drew Galloway is ready for his match, later tonight.

Bobby Roode is in the ring.

To say you have chaos all around would be an understatement.  You have Global Wrestling Federation here, TNA, here, Jeff Jarrett, and alot of unknowns.  Some of those unknowns concern him.  He is a bit pissed off, because you have a King of the Mountain match tonight, but “The It Factor” of Professional Wrestling isn’t involved.  If there is one guy who deserves that spot, it is Roode.  And Jeff, if you have something against Roode, be a man and say it to his face.

Secondly, he has something to say to Rockstar Spud, the man who defeated Austin Aries last week.

Roode tells Spud he should be proud that he beat Austin Aries.  He proved that anyone can beat anyone on any given night, including Spudey.

Spud never thought he would be standing in the ring talking to Bobby Roode, and Roode act like such a prick.  He understands how Roode feels, Spud shouldn’t be in the ring, but he told his teacher and parents one day he would be a pro wrestler, and he did that.  He said one day he would be a champion, and he is a 2-time X-Division Champion.  He said he would be World Champion, and he took Kurt Angle to the limit.  He defeated his friend last week, Austin Aries.  He deserves everything he has done in this ring.  Bullies used to pick on him as a little boy, but now, if that happened, he’d come right back to them and demand his lunch money back.

Roode agrees with Spud, he has earned everything he has done, and Roode should not be upset at Spud, but he is.  Spud is looking at “The It Factor” Bobby Roode.  If he was in the ring with Roode, in those same circumstances, he would do everything he could to end Spud’s career, and he’d beat him.

Spud said on most nights, Roode would be right, but not tonight.

Spud gets the first hit, and now the two men fight it out.  But Bobby rams Spud shoulder into the steel steps, and slaps The Crossface, as we go to a break.

Backstage, Roode and Jarrett go face to face.  Does Jarrett know who he is?  He books for one night, and he leaves Roode to the side.  This is a wake up call to TNA management.

It’s now Lashley Vs Jesse Godderz.

This is a King of the Mountain Qualifying match.

Lashley wins with a spear, pinning Jesse, moving on to King of the Mountain match later tonight.

Video from Full Metal Mayhem between Matt Hardy and EC3.

The Champ is out next.

We see the back, Drew Galloway is knocked out.  Who did this?

Moments ago, we see Drew Galloway being taken out.

The Jarretts are beside themselves with Dixie Carter.  Jarrett will figure this out. Dixie will go to the hospital with Drew.

Ladies and gentlemen…EC3…

Trouble!!  Trouble!!  Trouble!!

The Champ Is Here!!

Do you see what stands before you?  THE World Champion.

He was born and bred to carry this company to the future.  This title represents a culmination of his life’s worth.  This title means he is better than you, then you, than you, than you, than you, and anyone who is in the locker room.

He defended this title like it was a car crash.  EC3 won, and Matt Hardy, you lost.

The crowd chants he sucks, and Carter said he defends the title, in God Mode.  That means he is the unbreakable, undefeated, unbeatable champion, here, now, and forever.

Matt Hardy has something to say about that.

Matt heard every word he had to say, and he truly does deserve to say everything he just said.  EC3 beat Hardy in a match he helped create, he was the better man last week.  And he truly respects Ethan.  But through these compliments, there are caveats.  But #Matt4Champ is still trending, and won’t stop until Matt wins the title.

Matt will not give up, he will not quit, and he will not die.

Matt will not die, and Ethan has respect for Hardy.  When Matt nailed him at the table with the leg drop, Ethan hurt, and still is.  He will grant Hardy another title shot, but he won’t decide, the fans will.  You all want a title shot?

Damn right, well the answer is noooooooooooooooooooooowaaaaaaahhhhh

Titus goes after Hardy, the champ is here, laying out Hardy with the championship.

Next, The Wolves Vs Brian Myers and Trevor Lee.

Taryn wants The Dollhouse to take Gail Kim out, for good.  Fight Gail in a cage, and end her forever.  That way, Gail will never hurt her again.

Six Sides of Steel Cage match.

“The Adonis” Chris Mordeski is added to King of the Mountain match.

Tag Team action is up now.

The Wolves win with the combination of a Powerbomb and Backcracker.  Davey pins Lee.

King of the Mountain match is our main event.  Who is taking over for Drew Galloway?

Lashley is in the back, and we get a stupid question from the backstage goof.  Lashley wants to win, but he also wants to do this for TNA.

Tigre Uno Vs Sonjay Dutt is up now.

Uno wins with a roll up.

Jarrett is proud of EC3’s accomplishments, and Carter isn’t buying it.  He has his eyes on it.  He has his 5th man for the main event tonight, and Carter gets the winner next week, for No Surrender, and Carter’s title is on the line.

Next week, it’s Bram Vs Mr. Anderson, in an Open Mike Challenge.  Also, inside a Six Sides of Steel, Gail Kim Vs The Dollhouse.  And Jeff Jarrett announced that we will see Carter defend the title against the winner of tonight’s match.

The 5th man in tonight’s King of the Mountain match?  Robbie E.

Our main event is now.

P.J. Black wins the King of the Mountain Title, and next week at Turning Point, it will be EC3 Vs P.J. Black, for the title. We end the show with both men showing their titles.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Some strong points to the show, and some pointless points too. We have Robbie E as the 5th man, yet there was no backstage segment? Why not make that choice important there? Instead, Robbie just seemed like a random choice.

I did like the mic work by Roode and Spud, and Hardy and EC3, and we had a great tag team match.

So if you’re scoring at home, and you know who you are, we had TNA take 2 wins, GFW took 1, and a countout.

Looking forward to Turning Point next week. What were your thoughts? Send them here.

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/10/15…Is Summerslam Heating Up?

We are 2 weeks away from the biggest party of the summer, and with this PPV being 4 hours, we expect the show to pick up to make these matches must-see in 13 days.  I mean, putting a 4-hour PPV that nobody really cares about is like putting on a 3-hour weekly show that doesn’t mean anything.  I mean that wouldn’t happen, right?  Right?


We are live in Seattle, Washington.  13 days away from the biggest rematch of the summer, between The Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar.  We take a look at that video tonight, also “Arrow’s” own Stephen Amell is a special guest host, will he confront Stardust?  Also tonight, Luke Harper Vs Dean Ambrose.

But kicking things off, a 30 minute promo with Seth Rollins.

It’s Monday Night Rollins!!

He is the man who broke the face who runs this place.  Mr. “You can’t see me”, our WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  The Champion of Champions himself, Seth Rollins.

Last week, Rollins presented Cena an opportunity of a lifetime, he presented Cena with a title vs title match at Summerslam, winner takes all.

And what is Cena’s reply?  Nothing.  What is Cena doing with all of his free time?  Is he dropping on that Dr. Dre album too much?  Or is he trying to re-adapt his rapping career?  Because Cena isn’t straight outta Compton, he is straight outta no action.  Because Rollins just dropped Cena’s face with his knee.

If John doesn’t want to show up at Summerslam, and face him like a man, then he can show up in Brooklyn and forfeit his United States Title, like a man.

Regardless, Rollins will hold the WWE World Championship, and United States Championship at the same time.

Cena will show up tomorrow night at Tough Enough.  Then maybe he isn’t tough enough to show up?  Rollins wishes he was half the man he was, and show up tonight.

Wait a second, Cena is here?  Oh wait, he is live via satellite.

We see Cena on the titantron, but it’s Rollins doing the voice, from earlier tonight.

“Cena” is giving up, and Rollins tells him he is doing the right thing because the fans deserve a fighting champion, and that fighting champion is Seth Rollins.

He proved it when he beat Neville last week in the first ever Seth Rollins WWE World Title Open Challenge.  Neville showed while he is good, he isn’t the man.  And in order to be the man, you must defeat….

Enter Cesaro.

Cesaro brings up since Rollins was bringing up his Seth Rollins open challenge, Cesaro offers an open challenge, tonight.

That was last week, there is no open challenge.  What does Cesaro think he has done to earn that shot?

Enter Kevin Owens.

That answer Seth is nothing.  Cesaro has done nothing to warrant a shot.  He may think he does, because some idiot wrote up Cesaro Section signs.  But he has done nothing, while Owens deserves a shot, because he defeated John Cena.  Unlike these two, and Seth, let’s face it, you tapped out.  But didn’t Owens do that?

Enter Orton.

If anyone deserves a title shot, it’s Rollins.

Rollins makes it clear, the match isn’t going to happen.  Tom Brady has a better chance of getting a free meal in Seattle than these idiots have in getting a title shot tonight.  He doesn’t care what they think, he doesn’t care what The Authority thinks, just get out of his ring.

Now comes HHH, which certainly liked the idea of what Rollins said, that he doesn’t care what The Authority thinks.  We are 2 weeks away from Summerslam, and they were told John Cena is 50/50 at even showing up at the PPV.  Now that can create some chaos, so tonight, we set the stage.  We will have a Triple Threat match with Orton Vs Owens Vs Cesaro.  The winner goes on to face Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Title, tonight.

Also tonight, a special Miz TV with Miz’s guest being Daniel Bryan.  But next, 6-diva tag action, Team Bella Vs Team B.A.D.

Team Bella wins the match, but the excitement came after when all 9 divas attacks each other.

Charlotte lays out Brie with a spear, and now Team B.A.D. go face to face with PCB, the new name which was the former Submission Sorority.

Triple Threat match later tonight will determine who faces Rollins, later tonight.

The New Day Vs Los Matadores, go.

The New Day picks up the big win, with Big E. winning.

New Day Rocks!!

2 weeks away, from Brock Lesnar Vs The Undertaker.  We take a look at that match, later tonight.

New Day are celebrating their victory backstage.  Renee Young stand by with them.

It’s official, New Day will face Prime Time Players at Summerslam!!


And Los Matadores have been added to it too.

Triple Threat is fine with New Day.

And Lucha Dragons have been added too.

So a Fatal 4-Way match?  Regardless, we all know New Day Rocks.

Seth Rollins is discussing tonight’s matters with HHH.

This is about building a legacy, and that takes time.  Yes, he will defend his title, it will be against someone who will compete in a grueling Triple Threat match.  Besides, Rollins did this himself, by putting the Seth Rollins Open Challenge last week.  Neville took him to the limit, and Rollins showed the world what he can do.

If John Cena can do it….

Footage from last week on Smackdown.  The Wyatt Family Vs The Family at Summerslam is set.

Tonight, Dean Ambrose Vs Luke Harper goes one on one.

But next, Triple Threat match to determine who faces Rollins later tonight.  Cesaro Vs Orton Vs Owens.

Orton stole the win here with a RKO, pinning Cesaro to face Rollins later tonight.

A fun match here, but the ending we saw Cesaro and Owens work the match, but Orton came out of nowhere to pick up the win.

Orton Vs Rollins, later tonight.

Rollins is ready for the challenge backstage.

Ambrose is backstage.

He never had any friends growing up, but as he got older, he did find a friend.  You always need a friend if you get caught in Fresno…

Reigns tells us it’s good to have friends.  Luke Harper would do anything for Bray Wyatt, but Bray wouldn’t do much for Luke.  They aren’t even brothers.  Reigns asks Ambrose how he likes his coffee, black, with a little bit of sugar.  How about his water?  Room temperature. And his beer?  ice-cold.

Wyatt and Harper, you will find out what it’s like to mess with brothers, tonight and at Summerclam.

Believe that.

Video of Lesnar Vs Taker is playing now.

Next week on Raw, same arena….same time.  The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar.

After Raw, a special look at Lesnar Vs Taker.

But now, Ambrose Vs Harper.

Harper wins with his clothesline, after being distracted by Wyatt.  So where was Reigns to help?

Miz TV is next.

Miz welcomes Daniel Bryan.

The crowd loves Daniel Bryan.

Miz isn’t impressed, because he has a show to run.  Crowd doesn’t care.

Yes Chant is in full effect.

Daniel didn’t exactly come here to be a part of Miz TV.  Did you really think Daniel would miss Raw in his own home of Washington State.

Miz is a fan of Cleveland Browns.

Miz wants to talk about how he made Daniel Bryan’s career.

Daniel tells Miz he can take a lot of credit, such as his A-List ability being a part of the new film “Santa’s Little Helper”.  He can take credit for his amazing wardrobe.  But he can’t take career of Daniel’s career.  The fans can do that.

We will have to agree to disagree.  But they can talk about his official in-ring status, which is to say he is still on the shelf.

Since Miz has never been hurt, what is it like to be at home, doing nothing?

Daniel has been busy, writing a best-selling book, and being a judge on Tough Enough.

Miz is disappointed to see Daniel didn’t write enough about Miz.  And Miz too is a judge on Tough Enough.

Daniel got his first big break in WWE, through Miz, but Daniel also did the right thing when he was injured.  Shouldn’t Ryback do the right thing?

Which is what?

Vacate the IC Title, cancel his Triple Threat match at Summerslam, and award the title to The Miz.

Big Show shows up, he is going to punch Miz out one more time, and he dares the fans to find someone who will make Big Show retire.

Here comes Ryback.

Ryback and Big Show goes face to face.  Daniel shoves Miz right back in the ring.  Not looking good for the Cleveland Browns fan.

Ryback gives Big Show a Meat Hook.  He wanted to be fed more, so he gives Miz a Meat Hook.

Triple Threat match for the IC Title is set at Summerslam.

Orton Vs Rollins has history, Orton nails an incredible RKO at Wrestlemania this past year.

Tonight, World Heavyweight Championship match.  Rollins Vs Orton.

Video of Charlotte is being shown.

Earlier tonight, 6 divas are in action.

At Summerslam, A Divas-Three-Team Elimination match of Team Bellas Vs Team B.A.D. Vs Team PCB.

Rusev is in the ring, with Summer Rae.  He is facing off Mark Henry, with Lana joining them on commentary.

This match ends rather quickly.  I guess we can say Henry lost by DQ, when Lana stopped Summer Rae from interfering, but Summer clipped Lana and actually gave her The Accolade.

The Bulgarian flag, with Rusev’s face is shown now.

Dolph Ziggler will return sometime after Summerslam.

Stephen Adell is watching this show in the front row.

The week that was for Neville.

Stephen Amell is not amused by what we saw.

Next, Neville is in action.

Neville Vs King Barrett.

And like that, Red Arrow with Neville picking up the win.

Stardust attacks Neville from behind.  Stardust goes face to face with Stephen Amell.  Stardust gives Green Arrow a pie face, and Amell has enough, going right after Stardust, inside a WWE ring.

Security comes out, and separates both men.

We see what we just saw, and backstage, HHH checks on Stephen.  HHH does not agree to this, because Amell was a guest.  Stephen and Neville want a match at Summerslam against Barrett and Stardust.  Amell tells HHH to have his lawyers reach the contract, he will sign whatever waiver he wants.  HHH tell him that he will wash his hands from this, he will deliver the contracts to Stephen’s lawyers, have the contract signed.  It will be The Red Arrow and The Green Arrow teaming together against Stardust and King Barrett.

Jo-Jo is standing by with Sheamus.

Who does Sheamus root for tonight?  The boring Randy Orton or the weasel Seth Rollins?

He makes a John Cena and Goonies joke.  But HHH was right earlier, there is chaos centering around the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.  But there is one right thing, the Money in the Bank briefcase.  Sheamus will cash this in, and become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  And Jo-Jo, it could be tonight.

Orton vs Rollins is our main event for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Orton wins by DQ, when Sheamus grabs Orton after a RKO and lays him out. But Sheamus is all set to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase, but for whatever reason, the ref is clumsy, and does not do it. Sheamus hits a Brogue Kick, and Orton stops this with a RKO.

The show ends with Orton celebrating.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The show started off strong, but the ending was very confusing. I am bored of the storyline that the MITB winner tries to cash in the briefcase, but for whatever reason, it does not happen. But Michael Cole MAKES IT CLEAR that it wasn’t official. No shit, but whatever.

To be honest, Summerslam just isn’t shaping up to be a huge PPV. Other than Lesnar Vs Taker, everything has been sub par. I just am not sure the reasoning for Title Vs Title, especially when the title will be vacated after the PPV. If the plan all along was going to be Cena Vs Rollins, then why not give Owens the United States Title at Battleground?

He’s John Cena, he can get a title anytime. But if someone like Owens wins the US Title, not only is Owens a made man for beating the face that truly does run this place, but it also sets up a future rivalry down the line, and it makes Cesaro Vs Owens important, for the title.

So Summerslam is truly being centered around a one match show, and it’s 4 hours long.

Do you agree? Disagree? Send me your thoughts.

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/3/15….Lesnar Is Back, And He’s Looking For Taker

In memory of “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, and we see all of the wrestlers up at the ramp.  We get the sad 10 bell salute.

In the very same summer, we lost “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, and now “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.

We get a nice video profile of him.

We are live in San Jose, California.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

Our main event is a 6-man tag match of Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and Randy Orton Vs The Wyatt Family and Sheamus.

But the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins comes out to the ring.

The champ is amused with himself over kicking John Cena’s nose, and breaking it.

There is only one person in WWE that can slow him down, and that person is Seth Rollins.

He has a problem, and it’s been plaguing him, sympathy.  He is too sympathetic for his own good.  If a picture is worth a thousand words, this video is priceless.

We see video again of the broken nose.

Rollins feels John Cena’s  nose crack on his knee.  At first, he didn’t feel bad.  It happens in WWE, it wasn’t the first time he breaks someone’s nose, and it won’t be the last.  But he did break the face that runs this place.

And then he saw the picture of Cena, and we see a picture of Cena’s nose broken.

Then we had to stop the match, and reward Rollins the United States Title, but Cena did not want to stop, and the referee isn’t a humanitarian, like Rollins is, so Seth got caught, and Cena won the match.

He knows Cena is watching at home, licking his wounds.  So how about we do one more match, title for title, winner take all, at the 4 hour Summerslam.

And John, if you aren’t as tough as you think you are, and you don’t have the cojones to fight for the title, like you think you do, he gets rewarded the title.  Either way, Seth holds both titles.

Now San Jose is the place to be, and it’s not because of the fans, it’s because of Seth Rollins.  This is the place where he won his first WWE World Title.  And this is also the place where Cena made his first United States Title open challenge.  So how about we do this one better, a WWE World Title Open Challenge.  So, if you want some, come get some.  Because the champ is here.

Who answers the challenge?  We find out, next.

Jo-Jo is in the ring with Seth Rollins.  This is legitimate, and The Authority agreed to this, as long as this is caveat.  1.  You must be under 6 feet tall, and 2.  You must be under 200 pounds.

Which leaves us to one choice….El Torito.

No, wait….it’s Neville.

Rollins survived the match with a Pedigree, after Neville had Seth pinned from a Red Arrow, but the champ had his foot on the ropes.

Incredible match, a great way to kick the show off.

Tonight, Brock Lesnar is in the house.

8-man tag match is next.

The New Day and The Ascension Vs Los Matadores and Lucha Dragons is now.

New Day and Ascension pick up the win, when Xavier Woods kicks El Torito, and Kofi pins Kalisto with Trouble in Paradise.

Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Paige are on their way to the ring, next.

Our match is now The Bella Twins Vs Charlotte and Becky Lynch.

Nikki taps out to the Figure Eight, with Charlotte and Becky Lynch, the newly named Submission Sorority.

Team B.A.D. are looking on, and Jo-Jo want to know their thoughts.

They aren’t impressed with Paige, Charlotte, and Becky.  Sasha reminds us that she made Paige tap out last week, and Naomi calls them the baddest women in the planet, not Ronda Rousey.

Naomi challenges Paige to a match later tonight.

We will see Brock Lesnar return, and a 6-man tag match is set too.

But Miz TV is next, with Kevin Owens and Cesaro as his guests.

Miz TV is now.

Miz is telling us there would be no Miz TV if there was no original Piper’s Pit.

From the bottom of his heart, Roddy will be missed.

Welcome to Miz TV.

There is a saying about Miz, and that is he is on fire.  He is on fire in Hollywood, he is a Tough Enough judge, he is about to be in a movie called “Santa’s Little Helper”, and will be the new Intercontinental Champion, when Ryback decides to come back.  He thinks if he is hurt, Ryback needs to do the noble thing, and forfeit the title.

He brings out Kevin Owens.

Miz welcomes Owens, and Kevin tells him he is a big fan of Miz.  He owns every single movie.  Kevin believes he has had issues with Cesaro, because he is jealous of Kevin.  He has accomplished so much since he came into WWE.

And here comes Cesaro.

Cesaro came out to what walk Owens walk has to say.

Owens goes back to saying why he thinks Cesaro is jealous of Owens.  He has succeeded, where Cesaro has failed.

Because of all the weddings, and birthdays he has missed, that goes to waste because Cesaro will never be as good as Owens is in the ring.

Cesaro isn’t jealous of Kevin, he is ashamed of him.  When he walks away, he disrespected himself, his opponent, the fans, and every single superstar that has ever been in this business.

Kevin is just an embarrassment.

Kevin tells Cesaro he has accomplished more in 3 months than Cesaro has in 3 years.

They get into each other’s faces, ready to fight.  Owens tells Cesaro he will fight him anywhere, anytime, but only when the time is right.

Cesaro tells Kevin to walk Owens, walk

Owens rams Miz into Cesaro, and Owens clips Cesaro, but Cesaro catches Owens, and sets him up for the swing, but Owens gets out-of-the-way.

Paige has answered the challenge, will face Naomi.

But next, Rusev Vs Henry.

This past Saturday night, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey beat her UFC opponent in 34 seconds, and dedicated her fight to the late, great “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.

Rusev Vs Henry is now.

Rusev crushed Henry with a kick to the face, in very quick fashion here.

He kicked Henry again.

Summerslam is a 4-hour show this year.

Tonight, 6-man tag match.

Bray Wyatt now interrupts.

Summer has always been a symbol of beauty.  But you remove all the pedals, and what was once promising, all becomes a troublesome leaf and is gone.  Reigns, you were once chosen, and beautiful.  But now, you have become a symbol of everything that is wrong.

Harper says Reigns chose the wrong path, and now will pay for his decision.

Sheamus shows up, and says he will lay Orton out with a vicious Brogue Kick.

Wyatt always was fond of Sheamus, and the enemy of his enemy is his friend.  So tonight, they are friends.


King Barrett Vs Zack Ryder is up now.

Barrett wins with Bull Hammer.

Nobody cares.

The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar is next.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman.  And before he subjects us the appearance of the Beast, let Paul remind us it was The Undertaker who picked his fight.

We see footage from Battleground.

We saw the same thing he saw.  That was not the same Undertaker who laid out wrestlers for 25 years.  That was an angry, desperate Taker who kicked his client in the groin.  Why?  Because he has never beat Brock Lesnar, and when that happens, he becomes an angry little bitch, who knows he can’t beat him.

We see this evidence.

The epic fight on Raw 2 weeks ago.

Ladies and gentlemen, The Undertaker will never rest in peace, knowing he cannot, and will not defeat his client, the 1 in what is 22-1, the conquer, ladies and gentlemen….


Brock brings a steel step to the ring, and we entered Suplex City.

The last time WWE sanctioned a match between The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar, Taker lost at Wrestlemania, went to the hospital, spent a week there, and took a year off.

And here is something we don’t know, Undertaker called Vince, and begged Vince a match with Brock at Wrestlemania 31.  And Vince did the right thing to say no, because even the deepest of hearts, he knows Taker can’t beat Brock Lesnar.  But what did Taker do?

He was desperate enough to go to Battleground, and cost Brock’s title shot, and forced WWE to make this match happen.  So in 2 weeks, inside the Barclay Center, it’s the rematch that was too big for Wrestlemania.  And what will happen?  Undertaker, sir, you will be going to Suplex City.

The last time he faced him, he went to the hospital, this time, Taker will finally rest in pieces, because his man will lay you out, he will conquer you and his name is Brock Lesnar.

I am ready, 3 weeks away.

We now see footage of Cena’s broken nose last week on Raw.  Seth Rollins challenged a match to John Cena, title Vs title.  Winner takes all.

6-man tag match still to come.

Paige Vs Naomi is now.

Paige makes Naomi tap out to the PTO.

Submission Sorority have a big night.

Earlier tonight, Neville answered the Rollins WWE World Title challenge, and Seth survived the match.

We hear from Stardust on the official Facebook account.

Stephen Amell will be here on Raw, next Monday.

“Rowdy” Roddy Piper tribute video is next.

Ambrose flies, Orton gives Bray a RKO, and Reigns gives Sheamus a spear to win the match.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A very enjoyable show, from start to finish. WWE is trying to build these big matches. I do get the feeling that Title Vs Title, Winner Takes All is just like what ROH did with Lethal Vs Briscoe.

So the question is what will they do to United States Title?

Great promo with Heyman again, setting up Taker Vs Brock. Do we have one more face-off between the two men?

Another big night for the Diva Revolution, in particular Submission Sorority.

And a fun main event to match, so what did you think of the show? Send them to me here.

Impact Wrestling 7/29/15….Hall Of Fame Ceremony

Tonight, Jeff Jarrett takes his place in the TNA Hall of Fame, we will also see One More Match, with James Storm and Serena Vs. Mickie James and Magnus.  We will also see Matt Hardy choose his stipulation for the World Title.  And Jeff Hardy returns.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Austin Aries kicks things off, and he has something to say.

Austin is the most passionate wrestler, and he deserves a shot at the World Title.  He says Bully Ray is not doing a good job as the new boss.

And that brings in Bully Ray.

Bully is a bog fan of Austin, but his mouth always seems to get him into trouble.  Austin asks why he doesn’t get a World Title shot.

Bully told him Aries lost to Kurt Angle.

How about Aries and Roode getting Tag Team Title shot?

But they lost the best of five series to The Wolves.

How about a X-Division Title shot?

Austin is insulted about that, because he doesn’t need The X-Division Title, the X-Division needs him.  Austin is the most decorated X-Division Champion, it’s for guys like Rockstar Spud, who is never going to be in the main event spot.

And here comes Rockstar Spud.

Spud always looked up to Austin, he was the greatest X-Division Champion, he created Option C, so guys like him can be X-Division Champion, and cash in for a shot at the World Title.  Austin did that, and became one of the best World Champions.

Austin interrupts, and says he didn’t create Option C for Spud, he did it for himself.  He told Spud that if he cashes in, he would have nothing, and he has nothing.  He didn’t have a chance to beat Kurt Angle.  Aries lost, but 9 times out of 10, Aries would beat Kurt.  With Spud, 10 times out of 10, he would lose.

Spud tells Austin he has been told that his entire life, and he has proven everyone wrong.  Bully tells Austin that Spud has guts for coming out, and telling Austin how much respect he has for Aries, and Austin just completely tears him apart.

Aries proposes he works a match with Spud, if he loses, he doesn’t deserve a career in TNA.  So Bully proposes he puts that on the line.  If Austin loses, he never wrestles in TNA again.  Aries suggests there needs to be something in it for him, so how about when Aries wins, he takes Spud’s Rockstar name.  He will then be known as “Rockstar” Austin Aries, and Spud can just be little Spud.

Aries lays a cheap shot, and I guess that match is next week.

Tonight, Eric Young will face Sgt. Chris Melendez, we will also hear from Jeff Jarrett being inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame, and Matt Hardy picks his stipulation.

The Jarretts entered The Impact Zone earlier today, and we hear Kurt giving Melendez some advice on his match against EY.

Tonight, Tigre Uno speaks out on Trump, also Mickie James teams with Magnus to face James Storm and Selena.

Melendez Vs Young is now.

Chris has fought and fought for everything he has had in his life, and nothing will change.  He wants EY to come out, and here he comes.

Eric is trying to Chris a favor.  He doesn’t want Eric to come to the ring, he needs to quit, and Chris disagrees.  He needs Eric to come to the ring.

Our match is now.

Eric picks up the win with a Piledriver.

Kurt was in Chris’ corner.

Brooke Vs Marti Bell, for the Knockout Title next.

Clip from 2012 when Sting was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

JB goes to Matt Hardy’s locker room.  Matt hasn’t come up with a stipulation, but when we figure it out, they will let us know in the ring.

Who is we?

Brooke Vs Marti is set now.

The lights go out, which means it’s Gail Kim time.

But the action continues, and Brooke retains her title with a Butterface Maker, and wins the match.

Tonight, Matt Hardy chooses his title stipulation, and Jeff Jarrett gives us his induction speech.  But next, Tigre gives us his Trump speech.

Kurt Angle’s 2013 induction video.

Josh Matthews and The Pope are in the studio.  Bound for Glory tickets go on sale this Friday.

More footage of Tigre Uno.

Christy Hemme is with Tigre.  Donald Trump is not here, so Tigre challenged him to show up, he’s not here.  Tigre tells him the Mexican people are not for him, he is Tigre Uno.

EC3 isn’t sweating the stipulation Matt Hardy will give us later tonight.

Next week, we will see Austin Aries Vs Rockstar Spud.  But tonight, Mickie James and Magnus Vs James Storm and Serena.

Jeff Jarrett is catching up with Billy Corogan.

Ladies and gentlemen, EC3.


In 7 days, he defends his World Heavyweight Championship against Matt Hardy at No Surrender.

The caveat in this is he was tricked into a stipulation match by Bully Ray.  The Hardys claim they are such a great family, but they are just some hillbillies from North Carolina.

We get some Hardy chants going.

Now if this was a match against Jeff, he might be sweating it, but he’s not.  Why?  Because Jeff flipped over his Moped, and hurt his leg.  Amazing, he has done so many daredevil moves, and he gets flipped over by his moped.

But Matt Hardy, he is stronger than death, he will never die, but he;s just not World Champion material.

Here comes Jeff Hardy.

Look at what the cat dragged in, Jeff Hardy.

Jeff thanks the creatures.  Jeff has sat at home, and he has cried.  He was crying at the hospital when they put his leg back together.  He cried at home when he couldn’t go to the bathroom, but every time he sees EC3, he made him sick.  Overconfidence will get you.  He’s healing, and he will be back.  Before you know it, Jeff will be the next World Champion.

But before he does that, he gets a poll from the crowd, is Ethan Carter a good champion?


He is feeling there will be a change, and the man who will make that change is his brother, Matt Hardy.

Matt for champ chant is going.

Their entire careers, people like Ethan tell them they can’t, and Matt tells them next week, he will do.  People have said there is a rivalry between these two, but those people are jackasses, like EC3.  And between the two of them, they will make the perfect stipulation.

Jeff guesses there has to be some cool objects underneath the ring.

Hey, some chairs, some tables, and some ladders.  How about that.

In the ring, we have a ladder, a table, a chair, outside we have steel steps.  We have many metals around the ring.

3 words for Ethan, Full Metal Mayhem.

And per Bully Ray, nobody is allowed at ringside, except for EC3.  Nobody, and next week, Matt’s dream of being World Champion will become a reality.

Later tonight, Jeff Jarrett’s ceremony, but next, tag team mayhem.

Team 3-D video is playing, from 2014.

JB is with Magnus and Mickie James.

This should be a night of celebration, but tonight, the fans get to see Mickie and Magnus team up.  But this is not a celebration, this is a fight.  A fight with a man who tried to take put his family.  Tonight, they fight for the last time, tonight, they put this to an end.

Mickie tell us that family comes first, so if she has to beat down her friend, Serena for 10 years, then so be it.

Storm and Serena Vs Mickie and Magnus, now.

Magnus and Mickie win when Khoya screws up, and kicks Storm. Mickie hits a DDT, pinning Serena.

Jeff Jarrett is inducted into TNA Hall of Fame, next.

We hear from Ken Anderson, over what happened a few weeks ago against Bram.

Next week, Bram is demanding a match between he and Mr. Anderson.  He doesn’t even know who he is anymore.  He does know Ken has 2 little ones at home.  So he suggests he kisses them on the head tonight, and says goodbye.  Because this is personal, and Anderson won’t be coming home.

Next week, Bram Vs Anderson, Eli Drake Vs Drew Galloway.  Also Rockstar Spud Vs Austin Aries, Gail Kim Vs The Dollhouse, and for the World Title, EC3 Vs Matt Hardy.

A video look at Jeff Jarrett.

Mike Tenay brings out Dixie Carter, who introduces us to Jeff Jarrett.  Dixie brings up the first time she ever met Jeff.  It was in Nashville, and she couldn’t believe he was a wrestler, but he brought her to the business, and knows how dedicated he is the business.

She brings out Jeff.

Jeff thanks everyone who ever had a hand in starting the company, everyone from working in promotions, to the people behind to the scenes, and even to the fans who purchased the PPV.  He thanks all of the wrestlers who have ever worked for the company, and he thanks Dixie.  Because if it wasn’t for her, this company wouldn’t be going, and he wouldn’t be in this position.

He also brings up having a falling out with his father, over this company 7 years ago.  But 6 weeks ago, he started to talk to him, and family means everything.

He thanks us again, and the wrestlers join him on the ramp, as the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A much better show tonight than last week.  And we finished the night with a nice speech by Jeff Jarrett, and he deserves this.  No Surrender is next week.  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/27/15…Summerslam Buildup Is Heating Up

We see the footage of last week when The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar had their epic brawl.

We are live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  The Authority kick off the show.

HHH is here to make a massive announcement.  This year’s Summerslam will be bigger than ever, which makes this a 4-hour show.

And our main event will be 17 months in the making, The Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar.

And tonight will be epic too, which for the first time ever, it will be The Big Show Vs Dean Ambrose.

The former Diva’s champion, Paige will go against the current NXT Divas Champion, “The Boss” Sasha Banks.

And it will be Kevin Owens Vs “The Viper” Randy Orton.

The Diva’s Revolution will continue when it’s Nikki Bella and Alicia Fox Vs Charlotte and Becky Lynch.

Seth Rollins is pumped up for this, Seth knows about many firsts, he was the first man who cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase at Wrestlemania, and became the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, over Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.

Rollins talks about doing what he said he would do, and walk out still WWE World Heavyweight Champion at Battleground, and he did.  So he needs the fans to stand up, and admit Seth Rollins could go down as one of the greatest WWE World Champions, of all time.

Enter John Cena.

Cena calls Rollins an arrogant jackass.  For all of the Hall of Famers that have the title, and Rollins proclaims himself as one of the greatest ever?

Cena thinks they should face each other one on one, and find out.

He is here to ask HHH and Stephanie McMahon, and this is about the first time ever.  So we need to see if Seth Rollins can be a man.  So he says we have Cena Vs Rollins, for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Seth asks John to do something for the first time ever, and shut the hell up.  This isn’t his cute United States Championship, this is THE WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Stephanie cuts him off, and wants to take this to the people.

Do they want to see Seth Rollins Vs John Cena, for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship?

The crowd wants it, and Stephanie says for the first time ever….NO!!!

Cena has to earn this title shot.

HHH brings up nobody wants to see the WWE World Heavyweight Championship defended on Raw.  But, it will be Seth Rollins Vs John Cena, but not for World Title, but rather for the US Heavyweight Championship.

That’s what’s best for business.

Tonight, it will be Orton Vs Owens.  It will also be Paige Vs Sasha Banks, and next, Big Show Vs Dean Ambrose.

Paige joins the Stone Cold Podcast, next Monday.

Now, that is cool.

Big Show wins the match by countout, Ambrose is knocked to the outside three times, but the third time was not the charm here.

After the match, Show charges in after Ambrose, but Dean played possum, and moved out-of-the-way, allowing Show to go through the barricade.

Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show, reminding us Summerslam will be a 4-hour spectacular, starting at 7:00 PM.

The Prodigal Son, Luke Harper returns to The Wyatt Family tonight.  Neville is in action, next.

Neville Vs Fandango, now.

Red Arrow, match is done.

Stardust is not impressed, as he appears on the Titantron.

Tonight, Orton Vs Owens.  Also tonight, Paige Vs Banks.  And tonight, Lucha Dragons Vs Los Matadores, Number One Contender to Tag Titles.  And, United States Championship is on the line, Cena Vs Rollins.

Divas segment here, The Diva’s Revolution is on fire, and it’s because of Team Paige.  But Team BAD disagrees.

Sasha reminds Paige she is NXT Women’s Champion, and Paige reminds her she is the first NXT Woman’s Champion, and a 2-time Divas Champion.  Becky Lynch stands up to her mate, and Tamina tries to go after Becky.

Action will take place, now.  Paige Vs Banks.

Sasha made a statement by making Paige tap out to The Bank Statement.

Tonight, United States Championship is on the line, with Cena Vs Rollins.

Renee Young is standing by with Seth Rollins.

He has a chance to walk out with 2 titles tonight.

Seth wants to know who was it that beat Brock and Reigns at Wrestlemania.  And who walked out of Battleground with the WWE World Title?  Seth Rollins.

People are critics when he is at the top.  He defends his championship against the top stars, and Cena defends his United States title against the rest.  We have seen Cena’s act, and it’s time that his run has passed him by.

You can pre-order WWE2K16, now with a playable character being The Terminator.

Rusev is in the ring, with Summer Rae.  He is smitten with her, and so he should show us how to treat a special woman.

A brand new puppy.

What is his name?  Dog Ziggler.

Rusev also has a headless fish, and we call her Lana.

Lana comes out, tells Summer Rae that he makes her dress like her, act like her, and when he kisses Summer Rae, he looks at Lana.

But as Summer puts it, why go to bed with someone like Lana, when he can go to bed with Summer.

Lana slaps her with the fish, and goes after her, and pounds on Rusev, walks out.

Moving on, we see a video of what took place last week, with Undertaker and Brock Lesnar.  Brock will return the next week.

But coming up next, Lucha Dragons Vs Los Matadores.

Lucha Dragons win with a rollup, and for whatever reason, New Day comes out to distract Primetime Players.

8 days ago at Battleground, Luke Harper came back home to Bray Wyatt.  The Prodigal Son returns home, next.

Bray Wyatt time.

Bray is guessing every one of us have a family, so do we care for them?  Do we hug them each and every day, and tell them this world is a paradise, and if they stay together, everything will be alright.  Our Mommies and Daddies have been lying to us every single day of our lives.

If they did love you, they would tell you the truth.  The world can be terrifying, and the worst thing is all we have to do is open our windows and see it right in front of us.

Our government, our schools try to protect us, but the ones who protect us can hurt us the most.  And if we see the truth, we can seek justice.

Bray had this pet, he had the ugliest face, and wanted to see what the other side of the woods looked like, so he removed his leash and set him free.  But he came right back to him, just like he knew he would.  But he noticed he had a scar, from his eye to his mouth, and was right by Bray’s side the rest of his life.

He knew one day he would have to set Luke Harper free one day, so he can learn the truth.

Harper has the mic.

He didn’t know why he existed one time, or why was he here.  But his family found him, and he showed him the truth.  This is our fault, we made Luke the man he is today.  We created Harper, but Bray saved him.

He showed Harper the truth, and knows that if we pray for the rain, we must get the mud.  Bray Wyatt, he would give his life for him.

It always comes back to family.  Luke would go through hell for Bray, he already has.  But Roman Reigns?  No, if he says Dean Ambrose is family, then he would tell Dean to stay out of his business, but he may already be dead, because he had already sealed his fate.

Roman Reigns, we’re here.  Follow The Buzzards.

Orton Vs Owens, for the first time ever.  Also tonight, Cena Vs Rollins for US Title.

Charlotte and Becky Vs Nikki and Alicia, now.

Becky and Charlotte win when Becky made Alicia Fox tap out to her Disarmer submission move.

NXT Divas are on a roll tonight.

WWE Tough Enough video from last week is being shown, with Patrick leaving.

8 competitors remain.

Team BAD will be on the show tomorrow.

Next, Owens Vs Orton.

Orton wins by DQ, when Sheamus attacks Orton, and here comes Cesaro to try to take care of Owens.

Cena is with Renee Young.  He does what he has to do tonight, and he will defend the US Title.  He will prove he is the better man.

This Thursday on Smackdown, Becky Lynch Vs Nikki Bella.

Cena Vs Rollins, US Title is up now.

Cena wins with a STF, and had a bloody nose, to boot.

So John retains his title, he makes Rollins tap, which means Seth should win their Summerslam match, right?

The show is over.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This okay, but if you missed, you really didn’t miss much.  The Authority made this seem like a big deal tonight, but honestly, I think things will heat up next week.

No Taker, no Brock, no Heyman.  And while that is understandable, it’s also weird there was no Roman Reigns, when Dean Ambrose was there.

So, this show was meh, and if they are making Summerslam a must-see PPV, then they must make the Raw’s feel must-see too.

What did you think of the show?  Do you agree?  Disagree?  Sound off.

Impact Wrestling 7/22/15…Episode 29

Tonight, we find out who is the newest inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame, and we kick the show off with Magnus Vs Bram.

Bram wins the match with a clipping of the ankles, and he rolls up the tights.

Enter James Storm, who enters the ring with a cow bell, and knocks out Magnus.

Tonight, we will find out who Storm’s partner is, and he and Mickie James might want to stick around and find out who she is.

Still to come tonight, Bobby Roode Vs Matt Hardy for the Number One Contendership in a Tables match.

But next, we hear from Eli Drake.

TNA’s Bound for Glory is set for Sunday, October 4th, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Eli Drake comes to the ring.

His name is Eli Drake, and he has waited a long time to say let me talk to you.  Many people have asked how he could do that, stop crying dummies.

Eli Drake is a creator of circumstance.  And he created something that is a circumstance of opportunity for himself.

Drew kept talking about standing up, and standing up.  But Eli couldn’t speak.  Even Micah was nodding his head, like a puppet and Eli just used The Rising to get his foot in the door.  Eli is just like us, because we have all called in sick at work, even though we are perfectly fine.  Friends always stab each other in the back, and the ladies all pretend to be with their man, just because they pay the bills.

And here comes Drew Galloway.

Drew brought Eli into The Rising, because he knew he had killer instinct.  And little did he know how right he was, because Eli killed The Rising because he wanted to be a shining star.

Drew is not an old guy, he has been in this business for 15 years, but he is only 30.  He has had his surgeries, he has been hurt, but nothing had hurt him more than what Eli did.

The last week he has had all emotions.  He has drank too much, he has been depressed, he has wanted to beat Eli’s arse, so maybe he needs to let the fans decide what happens….

They want him to kick his arse.  Eli wanted to be a shining star, Drew will make him famous.

The fight rolls on, but Drew has the Future Shock locked in, but Eli slides out of the ring.

Tonight, Tigre talks Trump.

Next, Confrontation in the Cage, Taryn Terrell wants her title back.

Last week, Brooke defeated Taryn Terrell to be new Knockout Champion.

Taryn wants her title back, next.

Footage from “Pit Wars”, but Taryn comes right out, this show is not going to continue until she has what is hers.

She blames all of us for her losing the title.  She orders The Dolls to get into the cage with her.  She will lock herself in the cage, until she gets what is hers.  Gail, she destroyed her professionally, and Brooke, she took what is hers.  She needs her title NOWWWWWWWWWWW.

Enter Brooke, she is not impressed with this.  Taryn isn’t important, the fans are.  She can blame whoever she wants, but Taryn did this herself.  She and her Dollho’s.

Taryn can’t stand it when fans are chanting her name.

No man is worthy to touch Taryn, and no woman can touch her in this ring.

The only person Taryn should be upset is herself.  She outwrestled her, she outsmart her, and she took this title.  So, come and get it.

The lights go out, and come back on, we see Gail Kim in the cage with The Dollhouse.

Gail takes care of The Dollhouse, and Brooke takes care of Taryn.

Tonight, Tables Match for the Number One Contender on the line, Matt Hardy Vs Bobby Roode.  We will also hear from Tigre Uno, about Donald Trump.  And next, King of the Mountain match, from Slammiversary, in its entirety.

The Pope and Josh Matthews join us in the studios.  King of the Mountain match will air on Impact, from Slammiversary.

This is when Jeff Jarrett wins King of the Mountain.

Jeff Jarrett is the newest inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame, which was announced earlier in the show.  I missed the announcement, due to cable box going out for first 6 minutes.

Tonight, Chain Match between Eric Young Vs Rockstar Spud, and also tonight, Matt Hardy Vs Bobby Roode.

But now, Tigre Uno has some words for Donald Trump.

This was actually nicely done.  A piece on Tigre, and his life in Mexico, and to put it bluntly, he doesn’t share Mr. Trump’s point of view, but then again, Donald has no chance of winning Republican ticket anyway.

The Revolution are on their way out, next.

Recently on Impact, Mickie James challenged Storm to find any woman, and the four would have a match.

Here comes The Revolution.

We need people with guidance, discipline, people need leadership.  Storm founded this revolution because no matter what is going on, what you represent, there is always room for one more.

Storm gave Mickie a chance to join The Revolution, and she turned him down.  He gave you gifts you have dreamt of, because he offered you a chance to have things you don’t have in life.

But Mickie now is a lost cause, and Mickie will get her one more match.  Because it will be Mickie and Magnus Vs Storm, and the newest member of The Revolution, welcome Serena.

Serena, from WWE, who was a part of CM Punk’s Straight Edge Society.

Serena speaks, and says it’s a pleasure to stand in a TNA ring with Storm.  She and Mickie were best friends for 10 years.  They were like sisters.  Mickie called her a protegé.

That meant so much to Serena, and Mickie James became Mickie James, and then she disbanded away from her.  She was lost, but now she has found James Storm.

And Mickie, Magnus stands behind you, but a real man stands beside his woman.  And he will show them what they can do.  Hey Donovan, this is the moment where you say 10 years from now this is the moment where Mommy and Daddy made a big mistake.

Chain match is up now, Eric Young Vs Rockstar Spud.

Eric Young picks up the win, giving him the Piledriver.

Roode Vs Hardy, in a Tables Match is up now.

Hardy puts Roode into a table, and now is the Number One Contender to the World Title, and we celebrate his win when we end the show.

Next week, Jeff Jarrett takes his place into TNA Hall of Fame.  We will also have one more match, when it’s Mickie and Magnus Vs Storm and Serena.  And Jeff Hardy makes his TNA return.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I just wasn’t feeling this week’s episode.  I hated they re-aired the Slammiversary match.  I understand why, but they couldn’t add a segment from studio to cover up anything that has to do with Hernandez and BDC?  Speaking of that, it sucks that the contracts got involved, despite Lucha Underground not having a clear future, but then again, does TNA anymore?

And how do you not have a show without your World Champion?  EC3 needs to be on TV next week.

What were your thoughts of the show?  Are you looking forward to Jeff Jarrett getting his well-deserved Hall of Fame induction?  Sound off.

Ring of Honor Wrestling 7/22/15….200th Episode

We are in New York City, a special night for ROH, episode number 200.  Kevin Kelly and King Corino welcome us to the show.

Tonight, 8 person tag match of The Briscoes, Roderick Strong, and ODB Vs The House of Truth, including Truth Martini.

Highlight now of a match from April of this year.  The Addiction Vs reDragon.

This was when The Addiction won the Tag Team Titles, after Chris Sabin helped his friends in this match.

This Friday night, at Death Before Dishonor, we will see a Four Corner Survivor Match with The Addiction Vs reDragon Vs The Kingdom Vs War Machine.

Still to come, more highlight matches, and our big 8-person tag.

Highlights of Steel Cage Warfare is now being shown from 2013.

This was when Kevin Steen defeated SCUM.

Highligts of this year’s Top Prospect tournament, featuring Will Ferrera Vs Donovan Dicheck.

Dicheck wins the match, and joins House of Truth.

More highlights are coming up.

reDragon action, from Tag Wars, defeating ACH and Cedrick Alexander.

Now action of AJ Styles Vs Hanson.

Hanson tried, but AJ wins with the Styles Clash, back from November of 2014.

Still to come tonight, 8-person tag match.

A set of highlights now from 2012 when Lance Storm faced Michael Bennett.

Bennett wins with some help from “Brutal” Bob.

Our main event, 8-person tag match is up now.  The House of Truth Vs The Briscoes, ODB, and Roderick Strong.

Strong, Briscoes, and ODB win the match when ODB rolls up Truth Martini.

The 4 people celebrate, as we end the 200th episode.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Not much of a show tonight, especially since I have only seen about 10 of the 200 episodes. The disappointing factor is we didn’t see anything from episode 1. I guess, in part because it was on a different channel, HD-Net, and we had different announcers.

I did like the highlights of Lance Storm in action against Michael Bennett. Obviously, Mike and Maria upgraded with The Kingdom, over “Brutal” Bob.

I always love to see The Addiction in action too, and always a treat to see AJ Styles.

I just don’t have the emotion as someone who have watched this from episode 1 may have. Share your thoughts with me.

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/20/15….Deadman Walking

13 Suplex Cities, and a F-5 last night.  But The Deadman has risen.

We are in Kansas City, and The Undertaker makes his Raw return, since his loss at Wrestlemania 30.

Taker stands here tonight a relentless, remorseless, cold-blooded, vengeful grim reaper.

Streaks are made to be broken, that is the painful truth.  But Lesnar, he had to continuously week after week, month after month remind every one of his greatest accomplishment.  And now, Undertaker says enough.  He has taken what was once smoldering ashes, and turn it into a raging inferno.

Last night was Taker’s true resurrection.  You see Lesnar, you can’t kill what won’t die.  Unleashed forces will now set in their careers into new destinies.  And Taker will challenge Brock’s immortality.  He will conquer what has yet to be conquered.  And in the end, just like all living things, be it man, or beast, you will rest in peace.

HHH and Stephanie are in their office, happy that Taker is back, because Summerslam main event is set.  Taker Vs Lesnar.

HHH will tell Heyman not to show up tonight with Brock, because things can boil over.

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

6-man tag match is set for tonight.  Cena, Orton, and Cesaro will take on Sheamus, Kevin Owens, and Rusev.

But next, Charlotte Vs Brie Bella.

Team B.A.D show up for commentary, as we see what took place last week when a Diva Revolution was born.

Charlotte Vs Brie Bella is now.

Brie taps out to the Figure Eight for the second straight night.

It’s official, at Summerslam….Lesnar Vs Taker.

Tonight, Roman Reigns Vs Luke Harper.

HHH is talking to Heyman on the phone.  The Miz interrupts him.

Big Show, unproved came out and knocked out The Miz.

HHH is ignoring him.  Tonight, Miz will go one on one with The Big Show.

Los Matadores Vs Prime Time Players, now.

Los Matadores win with a Back Cracker, after New Day distract PTP.

Tonight, Reigns Vs Harper.

Also tonight, 6-man tag team main event of Cena, Orton, and Cesaro Vs Sheamus, Owens, and Rusev.

The Miz is set to face The Big Show.

Big Show wins with a flying forearm off the top rope.

Miz’s moneymaker is done.

Show is asking Miz if he misses him now.  The only thing missing is Ryback with his Intercontinental Championship.

Big Show tells us he will take that championship anywhere, including on tomorrow night’s Tough Enough.  He will see if they are tough enough to hand Show’s big fist.

HHH and Stephanie sees Paul Heyman.

Heyman assures them Brock is not here, he just wants to answer Undertaker’s retort, on behalf of Brock.

When we come back, HHH and Stephanie have the entire WWE locker room looking at the curtain.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman.  And he is the advocate to who should be the reigning, defending WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar.

But he’s not and the reason?  Is it because Seth Rollins outwrestled his client?  No.  Is it because Seth Rollins survived Suplex City?  No.  Is it because Seth Rollins  pinned, or made Brock tap out?  No.

It’s because of the demonic Undertaker.  We witnessed history, because for the first time since April 6th, 2014, his client went face to face with The Undertaker.

Brock Lesnar defeated Undertaker’s undefeated Wrestlemania streak that night.  So why wouldn’t he brag about it night after night?  It was a moment, it was a career-defining moment.  A-listers like Shawn Michaels, HHH, Randy Orton have all tried to beat that streak, and all failed.

But there is a reason Undertaker waited for 614 days to get his revenge.  So it all should happen, at Summerslam, “The Phenom”, “The Badass”, “The Unbreakable” The Undertaker will face his client “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar.

He might have sold his soul to the devil himself, but Undertaker’s ass belongs to Brock Lesnar.



The Undertaker shows up, he corners Paul Heyman, and here comes THE BEAST!!!!!

Heyman brings out security, but that doesn’t help.  Heyman brings out the WWE roster.

That’s not going to help either, my god this is awesome.

Brock escapes from the madness and goes right after Undertaker 2 times.

Let them fight!!

“I’m going to kill you” says Brock Lesnar.  “You will have to” says The Undertaker.

How can this show get better tonight?

We come back, and both men are being escorted out of the building, after the two men go after each other again.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw.  Something awesome.

HHH had both men arrested, and HHH told Stephanie that he just wants them to cool their heads.  Seth Rollins shows up, and is relieved they aren’t in the same building as Rollins.  Because you know, then Rollins would run away.  He wants to say a few words tonight, and asks permission.

Anyway, last night The Wyatt Family was reunited, when Luke Harper helped Bray Wyatt defeat Roman Reigns.

We now hear from Bray.

He is never alone, his family stands by his side because they know he is more than just a man.  He is an enigma, a revolution that lets this lie.  A revolution that makes sure Roman Reigns isn’t victorious.  And we chose him, but now we will pay for our sins.

Harper tells us this is only the beginning for Reigns.  Brick by brick will be built until Reigns crumbles.

Anyone but you Roman, anyone but you.

Reigns Vs Harper is now.

Reigns wins by DQ, when Wyatt attacks Reigns, but here comes Ambrose to help his good friend out.  And now all 4 men are fighting each other.

The coolest part of this was when Bray sets up Sister Abigail, Roman nails a Superman punch, and Bray is sent flying.

A great moment here.

Next, the “Cowardly Lion” Seth Rollins addresses the crowd.

We are live in Kansas City tonight.

Footage from last night’s Battleground, when WWE Champion gets his ass kicked, and the match ends in a no contest.

And our WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring.

Rollins is all smiles.

He has to ask us a question.  How does it feel to be wrong about Seth Rollins again?  We all bought into Paul Heyman’s bullcrap propaganda, just like everyone else did.

He sees the Suplex City signs.  He remembers how happy we were when Brock took an axe grinder to his $50,000 car.  He remembers how happy we were when Brock took out J & J Security, and when he broke that “wasted” ankle of Kane.

We all thought Brock would take Rollins to Suplex City, and become new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, but Seth is still standing as our WWE World Champion.

Now he knows Brock is an intense superstar.  He has wrecked havoc on so many superstars, like Mark Henry and The Big Show.

But Seth is still here, the most underappreciated WWE Champion in history.  We don’t understand the pressure Seth feels, keeping his title.

Ever since Wrestlemania, Seth has faced all challengers and kept his WWE World Championship.  You can talk about the ends, but there is always a means to the ends.  And he finds a way to keep his title.

But Brock’s history seemed to catch up to him last night.  He should have done what Seth did, and run like hell after he sees The Undertaker in the ring.

He feels like he was left out of something special last night, and even The Undertaker did not allow that to happen.

But he calls for Lilian Garcia to make the official announcement, the winner to outside interference, Brock Lesnar.

But still our WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins.

But here comes John Cena.

Oh shit.

Lilian doesn’t have to put up with Seth’s crap, and neither do we.

John Cena, ladies and gentlemen.

Seth doesn’t know why Cena is out here.  None of his business concerns Rollins.  But allow him to congratulate Cena on his big victory last night over Kevin Owens.  He will allow him to do his thing.

Cena wants to thank Rollins.  Because the two men won their respective titles in the same night.  They see the US Title as the symbol of excellence, and the WWE World Champion sucks, or something like that.

Rollins isn’t buying it, because somehow the US Title gains respect, but anyone who gets a shot at Rollins’ title has to earn it.

Don’t come out and talk to Rollins like that, he’s not a boy, he is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  He doesn’t care about those chants, but the fans think he sucks.  And Cena can defend his title all he wants, but Rollins will continue to live as WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Don’t walk away, The Champ Is Here.  It’s not the title who makes the man, it’s the man who makes the title.  And as a man, Cena thinks Rollins is a joke.  You ready to act like a man, pardner.

The shirts go off, Rollins asks him if he wants this, and he walks away.

WWE Universe, The Champ Is Here.

Tonight, Cena is in action in a 6-man Tag Match.

We see the Diva Revolution video again.

Team Bella are at ringside now.

Paige and Becky Lynch Vs Naomi and Sasha Banks.

Wow, Paige taps out to The Bank Statement, after Sasha and Naomi win their match.

Sasha made a statement tonight.

Footage from the upcoming movie “Southpaw”.

It looks like it’s going to be a good movie.

Next, a big 6-man tag match.

Earlier tonight, Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker faced off, with the entire WWE locker room separating them.

In 5 weeks, it’s official, Brock Lesnar Vs The Undertaker, at Summerslam.

2 weeks ago, we see Rusev attacking Dolph Ziggler, who seemed to be completely healed from his ankle problems.

Renee Young interviews Lana.

Ziggler is recovering home, but there is no permanent damage.

Now Summer Rae is dressed completely like Lana.

Rusev loves the new look, and he makes out with Summer, in front of Lana.

Summer now slaps Lana across the face.

Cesaro, Orton, and Cena Vs Owens, Sheamus, and Rusev is now.

My gosh, Sheamus, Owens, and Rusev couldn’t even get along for 10 minutes.  Owens accidentally ran into Sheamus.  Sheamus runs off.  Then Rusev and Owens has words, and Owens leaves.  That leaves with Owens alone in the ring with Cesaro, Cena, and Orton.

Oh but wait, there is more.

Lana comes out, throws her shoes at Summer Rae, and then spears her, which means…..


Rusev is run into an AA, Cesaro Swing, and a RKO, sending the fans home happy as the show ends with the faces celebrating.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The first half was fantastic, but the second half of the show dragged down.  I did like the ending, but sadly Rusev is just another wrestler now that he lost many matches, after being undefeated for so long.

But Summerslam is setting up to be a big PPV.  I hope to see more interaction between Taker and Lesnar, but not sure if we will.

But Cena Vs Rollins?  Really?  Then why not give Owens the United States Title and have him feud with Cesaro for the title?  Because we all know Cena is going to beat Rollins at Summerslam.

What were your thoughts of the show?  Are we ready to see Cena Vs Rollins again?

WWE Battleground 7/19/15

Tonight, Seth Rollins faces Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.  We will also see John Cena Vs Kevin Owens, for the United States Title.

Plus, the grounds of Summerslam will be building here.  There are rumors of superstars showing up tonight, or tomorrow to set up Summerslam.

The Kick-Off show starts in 15 minutes, keep checking here throughout the night.

We are live in St. Louis, Missouri.  Renee Young welcomes us to the Kick-Off show, with Byron Saxton, Booker T, and Corey Graves.

Tom Phillips will be joining us in the Social Media Lounge, and tonight’s guest is none other than Paul Heyman.

Cena Vs Owens video is playing.

This is the rubber match if a 3 match series between these two, which has had 2 match of the year candidates.  How dangerous can Kevin Owens be now that he lost?

Tonight, our kick-off show match is R-Truth Vs King Barrett, winner gets the crown.

Tonight, Bray Wyatt Vs Roman Reigns.  Video is showing.

We see footage of the eerie Michael Cole interview with Bray Wyatt this past week.

Eden Stiles is standing by with R-Truth.

Barrett last week on Smackdown said he would beat him so much that he would have to kiss his royal feet.

For real?

Truth knows what he is doing.  He has busted his butt to be out there just as much as Barrett has.  Truth has beaten him before, and he knows you win as many matches with your mind than you do with your fist.  He can’t wait to see Barrett’s face when he sees a guy with a plunger and a tin cap beating him down.

That’s the truth.

Randy Orton Vs Sheamus tonight, and we see what took place last month.

Tonight, Tag Team Championship rematch, New Day Vs Prime Time Players.

New Day shows up to show us how to do the clap.

New Day Rocks!!

Paul Heyman will be the guest in the Social Media Lounge.

Jerry “The King” Lawler, Michael Cole, and JBL join us for the Kick-off match.  R-Truth Vs King Barrett.

King Barrett wins the match with a Bull Hammer.

All Hail King Barrett!!

Paul Heyman is in the Social Media Lounge.

Brock will win the WWE World Title by doing eat, sleep, conquer, repeat.

He will also do whatever it takes to give Seth Rollins Suplexes.

Heyman isn’t impressed with these questions, and neither do I.

Losing is no option for Brock tonight.

We go from that pointless segment to the awesome Divas segment last Monday night on Raw.

All 9 divas will appear later tonight.

Tonight, “The Beast” Vs “The Architect”

We see video setting up our main event.

WWE Battleground starts now.

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

Sheamus Vs Randy Orton kicks off the show.

The hometown boy makes St. Louis proud with a RKO, out of nowhere, pinning Sheamus.

Battleground is off and running.

Tonight, Lesnar Vs Rollins for the WWE World Title.

Video from Stephanie McMahon last week calling for the women’s revolution.

JoJo is now with Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie changed the women’s landscape in one night.  But what about the commotion?  Stephanie tells us that we are just getting started.  We are in St. Louis.  All of the divas will choose a representative tonight, in a Triple Threat match, and she expects nothing more than all 3 women to tear this house down.

New Day Vs Prime Time Players for Tag Titles are up now.

New Day is ready for the challenge tonight, with a positive mind-set.

Titus and Young win with a Sky High by Titus, retaining their Tag Titles against New Day.

Paige is rallying around the troops, here with Becky and Charlotte.

Becky tells them they will rebuild the women’s division brick by brick, and even put the WWE Superstars on notice, and Charlotte tells them they will do it, with flair.

Reigns Vs Wyatt is now.

Bray Wyatt picks up the win when a guy in a hoodie reaches up, and gives Reigns a Superkick, and Wyatt hits Sister Abigail.

The guy turns out to be Luke Harper.  The family is back together.

We are 5 weeks away from Summerslam, but tonight, we are in St. Louis and sees Cardinal players after an 18 inning loss to the Mets.

JoJo is with BAD, Beautiful and Dangerous.

Naomi, Tamina, and Sasha.

They are in control of everything.

It’s going to be Sasha Banks Vs Charlotte Vs Brie Bella in a Triple Threat match.

Charlotte wins for her team with a Figure Eight, making Brie tap out.

Incredible match.

The Battleground Kick-Off panel joins us, and still to come, 2 big matches are set, with Owens Vs Cena, and Lesnar Vs Rollins.

But earlier tonight, King Barrett earned his crown, pinning R-Truth with Bull Hammer.

But next, Cena Vs Owens, for the United States Title.

Cena retains his title, by making Owens tap out to the STF.  Multiple kickouts here with both men, and again, they perform a clinic.  I just question if it’s the right move to make Owens tap out.  But it was an incredible match.

Ryback had to pull out of his IC Title match due to an injury to his leg.

But here comes The Miz.

The Miz’s match has been officially postponed.  But he has known Ryback since their Tough Enough days, but he has always found a way to get injured.  The Miz is the toughest man in WWE.  Who knows where Big Show is.  The last time he was relevant, it was the Attitude Era.  In fact, Big Show should just do what everyone else says he should do, and that is retire.

So what The Authority should do is give him the IC Title, because it’s what’s best for business.

Here comes Big Show.

Show storms to the ring, The Miz suggests they team together and reunite ShowMiz, and Show knocks out Miz.

Okay, moving on.

Summerslam is on August 23rd, so who will be WWE Champion when we get to Summerslam?

The Beast Vs The Architect is now.

So, the match ends up being a no contest, when Lesnar had Rollins beat, with 13 Sulpexes, and a F-5, but the lights go out, Rollins and the referee disappear, and we see The Undertaker.

He is out for revenge, we see 2 Tombstone Piledrivers by Taker, and he reminds us he still isn’t over losing at Wrestlemania.

And after the second Piledriver, the show ends, and Taker walks away.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I am glad I don’t order these events anymore for $60.  If I had, I would be pissed.  But with $9.99, it’s not as bad.  But think of this….

They had Cena make the hottest new wrestler in WWE tap out.  Something that should never happen, because the truth is, everyone taps out.  So why not make Owens unique?


The WWE Champion didn’t even win his match, but he was overshadowed by The Undertaker.

Although, it was a beautiful sight to see Taker come back, and he seems to want revenge.

But the question is where do we go from here?

The two matches delivered in giving the fans hard-hitting action.  They were built perfectly, and while the ending wasn’t as good as we wanted, the build to Summerslam will be amazing.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send me them here, and I will talk to you tomorrow.

Impact Wrestling 7/15/15…Carter Vs Carter

Last week, The Reign of Carter began with 3 title defenses, and we saw the return of Dixie Carter.  Dixie is naming someone in charge, Impact starts now.

The entire TNA wrestlers are around the ring, with Dixie in the ring.

The last time Dixie was in a ring, surrounded by the wrestlers, they were all cheering when she was put through a table.  She wonders what brought her all to that, and it was her ego.  She is here to take the blame, and to apologize to the TNA fans.

She regrets many things, but she does not regret going through a table.  Because she has a tremendous amount of respect for what these wrestlers give for this company, and to the fans.

She is here for a new future of TNA, a future that is so bright for the company.  When she is here to talk about the future, it’s easy to doubt.  People feel she will let them down, but the wrestling business needs Impact Wrestling.  She will do everything in her power to never let them down.  One of the first decisions she made is to bring someone who truly deserves them, but someone who is the law.

Enter Ethan Carter III.

Who is it Aunt Dee?  Who is it Aunt Dee?  Who is it Aunt Dee?

Dixie loves Ethan, but he will meet the man who is the law.

It’s Bully Ray.

Bully shakes the hand of many of the wrestlers, as they are in disbelief.

We are all shocked to see both of them in the ring together.  He received a phone call, it’s from Dixie.  The first thing he heard was I’m sorry.

She said it again, she was sorry.  What was she sorry for?  The answer was she’s sorry she let everyone down.  She’s sorry first and foremost she let down her entire locker room, and she is sorry for what she did to the fans.  And he started to believe her.

He has a detector of who is full of crap, and who isn’t, and she sounded very sincere.  He is very happy to be back on a wrestling TV show again.  He is also happy to hang back with the wrestlers, and the fans.

But he is still very angry, he wouldn’t be coming back because of Dixie.  He would be coming back for the fans, and the wrestlers.

He asks everyone to get up on the apron.

Every single person on this apron,. or the ring crew, traveling crew, they all give a damn about this company.  And Dixie should realize how much they all care, despite the stuff she has put them through.  Dixie came clean, but he isn’t making the decision, the fans will.

Do they wants to see him run things in TNA?  They all agree.

He won’t hug her, he won’t kiss her, but he will shake Dixie’s hand.

Now let’s all do what we do best, put on a wrestling show.

Oh yeah, Ethan, he didn’t forget about him.  The TNA World Champion will defend his title tonight.

And he will do it against the winner of a 20-man battle royal, now.

Drew Galloway wins the Battle Royal, last eliminating Eric Young, who eliminated MVP before that.

Later tonight, Drew Galloway Vs EC3.

Also next week, we will get to hear who the latest inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame.  Sting was the first inductee of 2012.

Josh Matthews and The Pope are in the studio, going over Drew Galloway winning the 20-man Battle Royal.

Last week, Bram took out Mr. Anderson.

Mike Tenay sat down with Mr. Anderson for an exclusive interview.

After we see what we saw, Tenay wants to hear about Anderson’s future.

He is 39 years old, in the best shape of his career, if he ended it tomorrow, he would be happy about his career.  Bram is a very dangerous man, and he can go dark.  If he does, it will be nasty.  But he doesn’t know if he wants to go there.

Rockstar Spud is in the back, with Bully Ray.

Rockstar is feeling sorry for himself, after losing to Kurt Angle, and his X-Division Title.  Bully Ray told him we all lost to Kurt, and he should be proud of what he did.  The first time he saw him, he knew he had it.  He is a funny character, and a very good wrestler.  He is a 2-time X-Division Champion.  And now he has a chance to be a 3-time X-Division Champion.  So go out there, win it for yourself.

Spud is ready, and he hugs Bully.

Footage from 2013 HOF, when Kurt Angle was inducted into TNA HOF.

Next week, the 2015 TNA HOF inductee will be announced.

Also earlier tonight, Drew Galloway wins a 20-man Battle Royal.  He faces EC3 tonight.

Drew will be ready for tonight, his destiny will be fulfilled as Drew Galloway will be the newest TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

Eli congratulates him, and wishes him luck.

Next week, Tigre will talk about Trump, and that should be fun to watch.

Oh lord, Grado is up now.  He is facing DJZ, Tigre Uno and Spud for the X-Division Title.

Tigre Uno pins Grado with a 450 splash, retaining his X-Division Title.  Spud is beside himself.

Tonight, EC3 Vs Galloway for the World Title.

But next, Taryn Terrell Vs Brooke for the Knockout Title.

It’s play time for The Dollhouse.

Brooke beats the longest reigning Knockout Champion, when the lights go out, Gail Kim shows up and takes out The Dollhouse.  The lights go out again, Brooker hits a Butterface Maker.  (X-Factor) and wins the title.

Kurt Angle and Bully Ray are discussing matters.  Kurt has an idea, Bully Ray liked it.  Kurt will make the announcement next, but somebody won’t like it.

Kurt comes to the ring.

Kurt is wearing a Destination America hoody.

He’s not ashamed losing the title to EC3.  He’s good, but he does have a problem with how he lost the rematch.  He got himself DQ’d, right before Kurt had him beat.

Kurt and Bully may not see eye to eye, but Bully has respect.  And from what he said, the rematch never happened.  The good news is he gets the rematch when he wants it.  That’s good because Kurt just went to his doctor, he has a tumor in his neck, and he needs surgery.  But he is looking forward to the title match when he gets back.  He wants to thank the fans for their continued support.

Here comes Eric Young.

Eric tells Kurt he needs to tell the truth.  EC3 didn’t beat him, EY gave him Piledrivers.  How many more can his old, crippled body take?  Eric wants to take the credit for that, so how many more can he take?  Maybe 2?  Maybe 3?  How about the next time he gets a Piledriver, Eric takes him out?

But Eric wants him gone for good.

He decks Kurt.

Chris Melendez helps out Kurt, but Eric clips him from behind, and he nails a Piledriver on Chris.

Still to come tonight, EC3 Vs Drew Galloway, but next, we relive the match from Slammiversary of James Storm Vs Magnus.

The 2014 TNA HOF induction was Team 3-D.

Next week, we find out who the newest 2015 inductee is to the TNA Hall of Fame.

Josh Matthews and The Pope tell us Bully Ray is now in charge of TNA, and he gave us a World Title match.

But first, we head to 2015 Slammiversary PPV match in an Unsanctioned match between Storm Vs Magnus.

Clips from 2 weeks ago, when Storm interrupted Mickie and Magnus segment.  Mickie challenged James to a mixed tag match with she and Magnus vs James and anyone he chooses.

James is backstage, telling us The Beatles asked if you want a Revolution?  James started a Revolution, and says he started it because there is always room for one more member.  And if you let Storm down, he will cut you down.  And as for his partner?  It’s someone close to Mickie.

The phone rings, and he walks off.

In 2 weeks, Storm and a mystery woman Vs Magnus and Mickie.

EC3 is in Bully Ray’s office.  He is behind Bully, but since he defended his title 3 times last week, he wants a week off.

Bully loves the input, but he disagrees.  EC3 is the World Heavyweight Champion, start acting like one.  Find a way to get the job done.


EC3 Vs Drew Galloway is next.

EC3 retains his title after Eli Drake nails Galloway with his crutches, and Ethan hits a One Percenter for the win.

Where does Eli Drake go from here, who apparently is fine, never was injured.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a better show, not as good as it was 2 weeks ago, but I liked the addition of Bully Ray.

I just wasn’t feeling the impact of Eli Drake, because quite frankly, he hasn’t done much since he got fired in.  Maybe that will change now, but one way or the other, he will have to showcase his talent, so his time is now.

Ring Of Honor Wrestling 7/15/15…Jay Lethal Vs Mark Briscoe…TV Title

Kevin Kelly and King Corino welcome us to the show.  Tonight, out main event will be Jay Lethal Vs Mark Briscoe.

Next week will be episode number 200.

Adam Page comes to the ring, he is scheduled to face Matt Sydal.

Matt Sydal wins the match with his Air Borne 450 Splash.

BJ Whitmer attacks Sydal from behind, orders Colby to get a chair, and here comes ACH to help his partner, but Whitmer nails him with a chair.

Colby gets many chairs, and Adam hits Rite of Passage to send the message on their chairs, laying out Sydal.

Corino is beside himself, again.

Moments ago, we see Adam Page take out Matt Sydal.

July 24th, Death Before Dishonor, Lethal Vs Strong.

Veda Scott joins the announcers at ringside.  On July 24th, it will be Moose Vs Cedrick Alexander.

Moose tried to be a successful football player, and he failed.  He tried to be a successful wrestler, but Cedrick Alexander put a little wrench in the plans.  At Death Before Dishonor, having famous friends doesn’t win you matches.  Being ruthless, and doing whatever it takes will win you some matches.  Cedrick Alexander will show you just how good he is, and potential doesn’t give you success.

“The Last Real Man” Silas Young is in the ring, he will face Will Ferrara.

Will picks up the upset win when Dalton Castle’s boys came out to distract him and Will picks up the rollup victory.

Silas attacks both boys, and lays them out.

Television Title is on the line next, Jay Lethal Vs Mark Briscoe.

Lethal Vs Briscoe is now.

Briscoe had ODB, he had Jay, but Jay Lethal wins with Lethal Injection.

The House of Truth come out and try to take out The Briscoes, but Roderick Strong, who was doing commentary helps out Dem Boys.

Roderick issues a 6-man tag match, next week on the 200th episode of ROH TV.

But ODB has a better idea.  Add her to the mix and Truth Martini.  An 8-person tag match…..BAM!!!

Lethal accepts, and next week’s big show is set when the show ends.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

200 episodes, and now I have seen 10 of them.  Not a bad show tonight, I loved the main event, and it sets up next week’s show very nicely.

The first time I saw ODB since she left TNA.  Funny they call her Old Dirty Briscoe.

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/13/15…The Battleground Is Set

We kick the show off with video from last week when The Beast was Unleashed against Seth Rollins and his Authority.

Brock Lesnar is here tonight.  Raw is now.

No intro tonight, we are live in Atlanta, Georgia.  We see the broken up $55,000 car that Seth gave his boys.

Here Comes The Pain.

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman.  And I am the advocate for the Cadillac crushing, J & J conquering, badass Avenger who this Sunday night, will make Seth Rollins pay for his sins, Brock Lesnar.

We are 6 days away from history being made again when this beast enters the ring as challenger.  How many times have we seen that opportunity, Brock Lesnar as a challenger.  When he was a rookie, Brock entered this ring as challenger, and dominated Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and became WWE Champion.  When he entered in UFC, Brock entered the ring as challenger to Randy Couture, and he conquered Randy, and walked out as UFC Champion.  And last summer, he walked into this ring as challenger, and we saw what happened to John Cena.  Eat, sleep, conquer, repeat, and he became the new WWE Champion.

And he would still be champion, if that slimy Seth Rollins hadn’t stolen the title from him.  But this Sunday, Brock is going to conquer Seth Rollins.

In 6 days, Seth will be dominated by Brock Lesnar, he will be conquered by Brock Lesnar.  He will be suplexed by Brock Lesnar.  He will be speared by Brock Lesnar.  This Sunday, Brock Lesnar will once again be the reigning, undefeated WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Enter Seth Rollins.

Seth asks Brock if he’s proud of himself, because this Sunday, he can’t wait to beat him.  He gave him a chance to stand up like a man last week, but he chose to go the cowardly way and take advantage of an inanimate object.

Brock takes this car as a symbol, but the WWE World Title is Seth’s symbol.  He will take a trip to Suplex City, he will bring the torch, and he will burn Suplex City to the ground.

Brock has the mic, he can take Rollins to Suplex City tonight, bitch.

Kane, back from his vacation informs us there will be order and tonight, there will be a contract signing.  At Battleground, Seth Rollins Vs Brock Lesnar is what’s best for business.  So Mr. Heyman, things….

Heyman asks if Kane is threatening his client.  So Brock, you are being threatened by The Undertaker’s little brother.

Paul knows he is not supposed to talk about Kane’s family, you know the man that Brock ended his Wrestlemania undefeated streak.

So what can possibly go wrong in an official contract signing?

His client will be in his best behavior, unless Seth does something to disrupt him.  If that happens, Heyman assures Rollins Suplex City comes to Atlanta, Georgia.

Contract signing will be set later tonight.

Tonight, Dean Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt.  But next, it will be Randy Orton and Ryback vs Sheamus and Big Show.  WWE’s own version of “All-Star” team.

The Miz is doing commentary during this tag match.

Ryback and Orton win when Orton hits a RKo on Sheamus, and Ryback gives us a Top Rope splash.

6 days away from Battleground.  Orton Vs Sheamus is official.

Kane has a plan for later tonight.

Kane and Rollins are bickering again.

Ambrose Vs Wyatt is next.

The match never takes place, Roman Reigns attacks Wyatt and lays him into the post, but the tides were turned and Wyatt used a lantern to nail Reigns, but even that had no effect, when we were erupted into a commercial.

Team Bella are in the ring, with Nikki telling us they run the diva’s division, but here comes Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie reminds them that she runs this division.  The problem is the competition just isn’t there, and there is an evolution in women’s sports.  We have The World Cup, UFC, and Tennis.

But she needs help, so allow her to introduce her to Paige.

Nikki tells us Paige has had many title chances, and failed.  Stephanie tells Nikki that she wants Paige out here, so shut up.

Paige has wanted divas to be on her side, but nobody has stood up, and fight.  So she wants to bring out someone who has fought and clawed her way to get into this business, Becky Lynch.

And she wants to introduce us to someone who was born for this business, someone who was styling and profiling, Charlotte.


But here comes Naomi and Tamina.

They have unfinished business here, and it’s their time to get in the ring with both Paige and Nikki.

Stephanie agrees, says she should come out and want her spot, which is why she is here to introduce another woman.  Someone who calls herself “The Boss”, Sasha Banks.

The current NXT Women’s Champion comes out to align herself with Naomi and Tamina.

Stephanie asks Nikki if this was what she meant when she asked for competition?  She is giving them an opportunity, so who will take it?

All 9 women start to fight.

The NXT Divas all are making a statement with submission moves.

Team Bella are done.

We have a 6-man tag match of The New Day Vs Primetime Players and Mark Henry.

World’s Strongest Slam, Xavier’s night is over.

We see the damage “The Beast” made last week to that Cadillac.

Video from last Monday night again.

Tonight, official contract signing with Lesnar Vs Rollins.

Oh my gawd, we are seeing King Barrett Vs R-Truth, again.

Truth wins again, with Lie Detector.

We see video footage again of Rusev laying out Ziggler last week.

Here comes John Cena Open Challenge.

Cena is ready for 6 days, and he is ready for the Open Challenge.

Rusev answers the challenge, and he is going to break him tonight.

Kevin Owens interrupts, and he tells John if anyone beats Cena for US Title, it will be Owens.  And when he beats him tonight, he will give Cena a rematch at Battleground.

Rusev was here first, and tells Kevin he has 2 first names, so which one is it?

Owens tells Rusev take his Lana wannabe, and stick that flag up his ass, or something like that.

But here comes Cesaro, he wants more too.

We are going to have a Triple Threat now, and the winner faces Cena.

I love that.

Rusev wins the match with a kick to the face, pinning Cesaro.  Middle of the match, Owens walks away.  He tells Cena he will be ready for him this Sunday.

Rusev Vs Cena is set now.

The match ends in a DQ, when Rusev was about to make Cena tap out to Accolade, Owens comes out and hits a Pop-Up Powerbomb on Rusev, telling Cena nobody will beat him for the title, except him.

In 6 days, Owens Vs Cena, for the US Title.

Seth Rollins asks Kane if the plan is set, he told him it is.  Rollins tells Kane it better work.

Here is the return of Lita.  She introduces us to the cast of the new WWE Tough Enough cast.

We hear from Stardust, he returns and faces Neville, next.

At the Battleground Kick-Off show, it will be Barrett Vs R-Truth in a Battle of the Crown match.

Neville Vs Stardust, now.

Stardust wins with the rolling up tights.  The fans were chanting for Cody, not Stardust.  That’s who we want to see.

Contract signing is next.

Rollins and Lesnar are coming out now.

Seth is sick and tired of seeing the footage of Brock destroying the gift he gave J & J Security, so he wants to see Rollins and The Authority lay out Lesnar, which we see now.

Seth is here to give us his word, he is not afraid of Brock Lesnar.  This Sunday at Battleground, he will conquer the conqueror again.  He will defeat the one in 21-1 again, and he will be the one to burn Suplex City in ashes.

He will still be the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Here comes Lesnar, with purpose.

Heyman tells Rollins he wouldn’t take his eyes off “The Beast” Brock Lesnar.  Ever since Rollins destroyed his brothers in The Shield, Heyman always wanted to see someone get their hands on Rollins.  Ever since Rollins have dubbed himself as “The Future of WWE”, the fans have wanted to see someone get their hands on Rollins.  And ever since he cashed in Money in the Bank briefcase at Wrestlemania, and he stole the WWE World Title from his client, Brock wanted to get his hands on Rollins.

6 days from now, everyone wants to see Brock get their hands on Rollins, because this Sunday, Rollins will get his ass kicked.  He will get hurt, he will get slapped, he will get punched, he will get Suplexed, he will get F-5, he will get pinned, he will be dethroned.  Seth Rollins is going to Suplex City.

And he will get conquered by one man, one beast, the real future of WWE, Brock Lesnar.

Rollins signs the contract, and when Brock signs his contract, Rollins tries to grab an ace handler, but Heyman sees it.

Rollins denies it, but Brock kicks the table down, finds it and puts it back on the table, daring them to use it.

Rollins grabs it, but Brock flips the table on him.  Kane helps Seth out though, by taking out Brock.  But The Beast turns the tide, gives Kane a F-5, and when he goes after Rollins, Seth runs away, and Brock now takes the steel step, and nails it with Kane’s foot, breaking his ankle.

Rollins comes back, irate at this.

From day one, Brock believed he could run through everyone.  He ran through John Cena, The Undertaker, Roman Reigns, but he didn’t run through Seth Rollins.  Seth is better than Brock, and he is just a man.  He will show everyone he is just a man with a pule.  He will skin off that tattoo, and become the man who sleighs the beast.

So this was Kane’s plan?  To get rid of Lesnar?  How did that work out for him?  Like Kane’s entire career, a big disappointment.  Rollins told Kane that if this doesn’t work out, he would be nothing.  How is that working out?  Well, this is all on Kane.

Rollins stomps on his ankle, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a strong build to Battleground tonight, especially the ending.  But I can’t see how they would turn Rollins a babyface at the end of this.  Especially after seeing Rollins take out Kane’s ankle too, so we will see.

Everything else was good too, we finally had someone face off against the Bellas.  The WWE debut of Sasha Banks, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch.

We are also down to the stretch run of Cena Vs Owens, and saw a tremendous Triple Threat match to get to Cena, which I loved to see.  Again, they are making the US Title feel important.  Perhaps they can do the same thing with the IC Title?

A very good show tonight, and I am looking forward to seeing Battleground now.

Share me your thoughts?  Do you trust Vince to truly push the new WWE Divas in the right direction?

Impact Wrestling 7/8/15…The Reign Of Carter Begins

Clips from last week, when Ethan Carter III pins Kurt Angle clean in the ring to become the new World Heavyweight Champion.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Ladies and gentlemen, EC3!!!

Trouble!!  Trouble!!  Trouble!!

I love that theme.

Josh Matthews and The Pope welcome us to the show.

Do I have your attention now?

EC3 is unpinned, unsibmitted, undefeated, unbeatable new World Heavyweight Champion, Ethan Carter III….EC3.

The time is now, EC3 is here, and he is the new, undisputed World Heavyweight Champion and the greatest wrestler alive.

He has been given a gift, by his sweet Aunt Dee, she is coming back to the show tonight, and he has been put in charge of the show.

In the main event, history will be made, not once, not twice, but three times.

Enter Matt Hardy.

He did EC3 a favor a few weeks ago, and softened up Kurt Angle.  He’s not an EC3 fan, and he did it to prove he belongs in the World Title picture.  EC3 was successful in his campaign, so he is going to start his now, called Matt for Champ.

He pleads with Twitter to give is a hashtag.

EC3 asks Tyrus if he likes the idea of Matt for champ?


Ethan tells Matt that he took Kurt to the limit, but Ethan took Kurt to the mat, so he regretfully declines.

How about Matt beat down Carter, and Tyrus doesn’t like that idea.

But Matt is already booked in a tag team match, now Hardy’s brother decided to get his leg hurt, but Matt will face this tag team who aren’t happy about last week’s event….

The Dirty Heels.

The Dirty Heels win with some dirty tactics, Roode holds onto Hardy’s shoes, while Aries makes the pin.

Still to come tonight, part 2 of Jeff Jarrett’s interview, and the return of Dixie Carter.

The Rising are up next.

For the last time, The Rising are in the ring together.

As of right now, as Drew says The Rising are finished.

The 3 of them came together because there was a need for a chance to fight for wrestling.  He is talking about The Beat Down Clan.  Eli, Micah, it has been an honor fighting beside each other.

Eli is sorry for this, but with this, Drew brought Eli to the door, and there will come a time he is going to show the gratitude.

Drew tells us the future is bright in TNA, BDC will be done.

The night is always darkest before the dawn.  Drew will continue to fight, this is not the end, but only the beginning.

EC3 is touched by this, who is doing commentary.  What Drew has done is touching, but it’s just too bad he booked him in a 6-man tag match, and he has nobody.

So Drew, they say when factions break up, they have to face a 3-on-1 tag match, so bring out the team.

It’s The Revolution, consists of Abyss, Khoya, and Manik.

Galloway picks up the win, kicking Manik in the face, and rolling him up for the win.  Khoya and Abyss got into it a bit before the pinfall.

Mr. Anderson congratulates EC3 for winning, and respects him for doing that with a clean pinfall.  He offers his services to face EC3 for the title in one of the 3 matches.  Nope, Anderson is facing Bram, next.

Bram is DQ’d ramming a chair into Anderson.

Bram wants Mr. Anderson’s mic now.

Bram nails Anderson with a mic, calling him pathetic, again with the mic job.  And nails him 2 more times, while Anderson bleeds.

Jesse Godderz is in the ring, ready for a streetfight against Robbie E.

Jesse wins with the Adonis Crab, making Robbie pass out.

EC3 is ready for his history making night.  Lashley wants his shot tonight, but EC3 denies that match, and gives us Lashley Vs Tyrus.

Kurt Angle is ready to make things interesting.

Part 2 of Jeff Jarrett’s interview is now.

Jeff tell us TNA is a part of Global Force family, their mission is to bring promotions together, and give is matches we have all been wanting to see.

EC3 is in the ring, ready for his 3 title matches.

Ethan believes in paying it forward, and you never forget your first match, and he brings us the man, the myth, the legend….

Norv Fernum.

Kick to the gut, one percenter, match is done.

Match one out-of-the-way.

Now for match two….

This week is Shark Week, on Discovery, so what could that mean?

Give me a Shell Yeah!!

It’s the legendary Sharkboy.

One Percenter.

Trouble!!  Trouble!!  Trouble!!

One more match to go.

Our third and final title defense…

Kurt Angle comes out.

Boy Kurt, you just ruined a great segment here.

Ethan is a scared little boy.  He is afraid to face anyone, and this is a binding contract, and he can have a match anytime he chooses.  He chooses tonight.  He wants his title back, it’s real….it’s damn real.

Lashley is ready for a fight, he faces Tyrus, next.

Lashley wins the match with a spear.

This hasn’t been a good 15 minutes for EC3.

Tonight, EC3 Vs Kurt Angle.  But next, Velvet Sky Vs Madison Rayne.

More of part 2 from Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling interview.

This is about having the same goal, and the same plans for each other.  Jarrett will let the fans decide about Jarrett’s legacy.  He has had some enjoyable matches with Kurt Angle, the early NWA TNA days with AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Mick Foley, Don West.  If there is a legacy, he takes great pride in choosing the right people in place to be the very best.

At the end of the day, it’s about competing to be the very best, that is his legacy.

Velvet Sky Vs Madison Rayne is now.

Madison tells Velvet she doesn’t belong in this ring anymore, Velvet has had enough.  Match is now.

Velvet wins with a stunner.

EC3 Vs Angle, for the TNA World Title is next.

Angle Vs EC3 is now.

EC3 causes a DQ when he rammed into Brian Hebner, but EC3 tapped out right as this happens, but the ref did not see it.

A limo shows up, here is Aunt Dee.

EC3 is in the ring, he won that.  And now ladies and gentlemen, he wants to bring out the return of Dixie Carter.

Dixie tells Ethan she put her body on the line by going through a table.  And she realized the mistakes she had made.  She is proud of Ethan, and the accomplishments he has made.  But he needs to defend his title and defend his wins by winning, and not skating through his name.  Someone needs to be in charge, someone needs to make sure this company continues to soar, this crowd makes this company.  They deserve that.  And that someone is not Dixie.  And darling, that someone is not Ethan either.

We end the show, wondering who is in charge of Impact Wrestling.

Next week, Tigre Uno puts his X-Division Title on the line against Rockstar Spud, Greto, and Manik.  Also will Taryn Terrell be able to handle Brooke?

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Despite my fun moments with EC3, I wasn’t a big fan of tonight’s show.  Just no setup for a proposed rematch, and we have a return of Dixie Carter, who did not give us much news at all, except she disapproves EC3.  But then again, we see the return of Norv Fernum, so not all was horrible.

Jeff Jarrett also tells us that everyone will work under the same umbrella at Global Force.  It’s a good thought, but ego is always in the way.  Will TNA oblige?

Tune in, and find out.  Give me your thoughts on the show.

Ring Of Honor Wrestling 7/8/15…Battle Of The Belts

Tonight, we find out results of Battle of the Belts.  Who is the ROH World Championship?

It’s Jay Lethal.

We are in New York City, with Kevin Kelly and King Corino welcoming us to the show.

Our main event is Elgin and reDRagon Vs The Kingdom.

But first, we will see Watanabe Vs Dalton Castle.

Dalton Castle wins with his Spinning Wheel move, I guess.

He shakes hands with Watanabe, and now Dalton has something to say.

He is the only man in ROH, as he sits on his two boys, and his name is Dalton Castle.

This upsets Silas Young, who comes out.

We hear about the ROH World Title, next.

Nigel McGuiness is here to introduce us the current ROH TV Champion, and the new ROH World Champion, who defeated Jay Briscoe at Best in the World.

Jay looks good with both titles.

Nigel shakes Jay’s hand and congratulates him as new ROH World Champion.

The crowd chants he deserves it, and Truth Martini tells us Jay deserves this, but these people are not Jay’s people, The House of Truth are Jay Lethal’s people.

Best In The World, history was made, we witnessed greatness, we witness the new undisputed World Champion, Jay Lethal.

Nigel wants to hear from the champ.

All Jay wants to say is what he has been saying since the beginning, Jay is the best in the world.  To be the best, you have to be the undisputed of the greatest Wrestling company in the world.  But ROH is the greatest Wrestling company in the world, because Jay Lethal is here.

Nigel wants to know which title he is going to vacate, what is his plan moving forward?

Jay isn’t giving up a damn thing, he has earned both of these championships and Nigel knew going in, the man who won would have both title and he isn’t giving up anything.  And when Jay is wrestling, he is going to be the undisputed Champion, and he needs both titles.

Nigel tells him if that is the case, then the two titles are two separate titles, and therefore, both need to be defended.

At Death Before Dishonor, Jay will face Roderick Strong, and next week on TV, Lethal will defend the TV Title against Mark Briscoe.

Jay tells Nigel if he has to defend both titles on the same night, then so be it….

Here comes Roderick Strong.

Roderick wants Jay to make full of something, July 24th on IPPV, at Death Before Dishonor, Jay will walk in as World Heavyweight Champion, and after DBD, Roderick will out as World Heavyweight Champion.

July 24th, Death Before Dishonor, Lethal Vs Strong.  Next week, on TV, Lethal Vs Mark Briscoe for TV Title.

Our main event is up now, The Kingdom Vs reDRagon and Michael Egin.

At Best In The World, we saw Adam Cole lose to Bullet Club, and Maria Kanellis assures Adam nothing is wrong with The Kingdom.  She blames herself, as the leader of The Kingdom.  Taven, Bennett, and herself have been touring together in Japan, winning the NJPW Tag Titles.

So they all get a group hug, and our match is set.

reDragon and Michael Elgin defeated The Kingdom, when Kevin O’ Reiley pins Adam Cole.

Cole shakes hands with O’ Reiley, and walks out with them leaving The Kingdom alone.

What does this mean for The Kingdom, the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I’m going to say this again, I can’t stand this current format.  PPV was 2 weeks ago, we just heard from the new champ and find out he has a title defense in 16 days.  I know Strong won his match to get this title shot, but there won’t be much heat to it, at least on TV.  Why not start the tapings right after the PPV and set your next big show for the next one, so we can see 4 weeks of build ups?  And did they need to wish us a Happy 4th of July weekend, when this isn’t a weekend?  I know it was first aired over this past weekend, but edit that out.

Anyway, again I enjoyed the wrestling but my favorite part of the show was the first Jay Lethal promo in 2 weeks, since he won the title.  And I am looking forward to seeing him compete next week against Mark.

Other than that, story of the night was Adam Cole turning face, right?  Kingdom are about to kick him to the curb.

What were your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me here.  Have a great 4th of July weekend, everyone.

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/6/15….Chi-Town Rumble

After last week’s horrible Raw, we see a recap of the biggest problem, Seth Rollins giving prizes away like he is a game show host.  Our WWE Champion, ladies and gentlemen.

Here Comes The Pain, in Chicago.

We are 13 days away from Battleground, and we hear from…

My name is Paul Heyman, and I am the advocate for the 9th mayor of Suplex City….BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK LESNAR!!!!

It come to his attention that Seth Rollins and his merry men believe he is still in Tokyo, Japan.  Which means you can put a title on anybody, even a shmuck Justin Bieber-look-a-like, like Seth Rollins who can luck his way to the championship.

Let him put it like this, his client is a God, but not a God of religion, or a God of family, or a God of morality, but rather a God of retribution.

This is his sword, and allow Heyman to remind us he took the streak away from The Undertaker.

The crowd boos him, and Heyman brings up don’t boo the advocate.

But when his client took The Undertaker’s streak at Wrestlemania, he didn’t respect Undertaker, but he also didn’t disrespect The Undertaker.

Now when his client took John Cena to Suplex City, Brock didn’t have any respect for John Cena, but he also didn’t disrespect Cena, he wanted the WWE Championship.

His client didn’t respect Roman Reigns, when he showed up what insufferable pain really is, but he also didn’t disrespect Reigns.

Now, Seth Rollins broke the 11th commandment, thou shall not provoke Brock Lesnar.

Seth Rollins didn’t provoke Lesnar twice, like taking the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania, he also provoked him the night after Wrestlemania, when he went in thinking he’d have a rematch, and then walk away.

But he also provoked Lesnar a third time a few weeks ago, when a bunch of hooligans attacled The Beast Incarnate, but they let a Beast breathe.

This is the point where Heyman is supposed to sell us on the PPV, in 13 days at Battleground.  His client Brock Lesnar will get his hands on the reigning, defending undisputed World Heavyweight Championship, and become the new champion, but that beating to Suplex City begins tonight, in the cathedral hall of Suplex City, in the All-State Center in Chicago, Illinois.

Now, we hear the WWE World Champion will be here tonight.

We hear chants of Suplex City, and since the champ will be here, Brock Lesnar isn’t going anywhere tonight.

So someone needs to tell the champ, Brock is here to fight.

Cole, JBL, and Byron join us for the show.  Kane is on his trip in Hawaii, and we see awful pictures from that trip.

Seth gave J & J Security a new Cadillac, and we see their road trip they went to.

Big Show Vs Ryback, one on one is now.

The Miz was in commentary during the match the entire time, egging both men on to beat each other up.  The match ends in a DQ for Ryback, but Miz attacks both men.  But it doesn’t work.

Also, Chicago fans said Cleveland sucks at Miz, how rude.

Shellshock, and a Chokeslam, but Ryback hits a Meathook on Show and is left standing.

Feed Me More….

Tonight, another John Cena United States Open Challenge.

More footage of Kane in Hawaii, and footage from earlier today, J & J Security are in Chicago.

Divas action now, with Brie Bella Vs Paige.

Brie wins with a X-Factor, after Nikki and Alicia distracted Paige long enough, but we see a Rack Attack and an Axe Kick, and no divas are helping out Paige.

Footage from last week over Reigns and Wyatt.

Roman Reigns Vs Sheamus is up now.

Sheamus wins by countout when we hear Bray Wyatt’s music, and we think Bray is making his way, but it’s Luke Harper instead and Roman nails him with a Superman punch.

But Bray shows up on-screen, laughing and just says anyone but you.

And as Sheamus was celebrating over his fluke win, here comes Randy Orton.

They fight in the barricade, and move to the ring, Orton hits a RKO.

13 days, these two face off at Battleground.

HHH is on the phone, and we see the champ and his entourage show up.

Seth is smiling, and HHH informs him that Lesnar is here, and will fight him, so what will he do about it?

Seth is very confident about Battleground, so HHH suggests he stays away from Brock and let him steam, and make a mistake.  But he is Brock Lesnar, that won’t happen, so Seth has to intentionally provoke Brock Lesnar, and show him why he is the man.  Rollins will call out The Beast.

Rusev and Summer Rae are in the ring.

Our USA loves opportunities.  He loves the opportunities his new love, Summer Rae gave last Thursday night on Smackdown that he apologizes himself.

He apologize…

The crowd wants Lana, but he gives us Summer.

He won’t apologize for wasting a year of his life to Lana, and he won’t apologize that these guys took Lana on our level, and he won’t apologize for being better looking, more intelligent, and more passionate than Dolph Ziggler.

Summer tells us we should be showing respect for this man for what he deserves.

Rusev kisses Summer’s hand, and here comes Ziggler and Lana.

Rusev is distorted, because everything he has gotten from WWE is due to Lana.  Deep down, he knows this, and you know that song hebutchered a few weeks ago, yo don’t know what you got, til it’s gone?  Well brother, it’s gone and Ziggler found her.

They make out, and now Summer and Lana are about to fight, but Rusev nails Ziggler with his crutch, and kicks him with his cast.

Rusev talks trash, but Ziggler fight back.  But Rusev has the final say.

Officials check on Ziggler, with Rusev admiring his work.

Moments ago, we see what just saw, Rusev is healthy now, and he used that against Ziggler.

Ziggler is wheeled out by EMTs, with Lana by his side.

We go from that, to the inspirational Bo Dallas!!

That was a horrible thing we just saw what happened to Dolph Ziggler.  Just goes to show bad things happen to bad people, and good things happen to good people.  Good people like him, and all you have to do is BO-lieve.

Oh boy, his opponent is Dean Ambrose.

Dirty Deeds, that is all she wrote.

BO-Lieved, and he lost.

Brock Lesnar is here, Seth Rollins is here, Kane is vacationing in Hawaii, and J & J Security cruised in their Cadillac.

Tonight, Seth Rollins calls out The Beast.

Bad News Barrett Vs R-Truth, oh boy.

Barrett wins with Bull Hammer.

Seth Rollins is heading to the ring, next.

Earlier tonight, Rusev attacked Ziggler, and he has damaged his throat.

Here comes Seth Rollins.

Oh good lord, we see the car come out.

Rollins, J & J have axe handles.

HHH and Stephanie chose Brock Lesnar to be his opponent at Battleground, because they know what we will all find out, he is the undisputed future, and the future is now.

He reunited The Authority, and they laid out Brock Lesnar like a whimpering dog.

He conquered the conqueror, he set fire to Supex City.  And at Battleground, he will burn it down the ground.

That Neanderthal can’t match Rollins’ intelligence.

We see footage of The Authority attacking Lesnar.

Suplex City chants, and Seth tells us to chant that all we want, but he is the man.  He reunited The Authority, he defeated Brock at Wrestlemania, and there is nobody else who can beat him.  He walks in to Battleground WWE World Champion, and he will walk out Battleground as WWE World Champion.

Now Paul Heyman brings up the 11th commandment, never intentionally provoke Brock Lesnar.  So Brock, he is wondering, are you the man Paul Heyman says you are, or are you Heyman’s bitch?

Here comes the pain.

Brock has some axe grinders himself, and he smashes the car with them.  He is goating The Authority in while doing it, which is hilarious.

Brock goes after Noble’s arm, and breaks it, he sends Mercury into the car with a suplex, and now it’s just Lesnar and Rollins.

Yeah, Rollins runs away like a bitch.

13 nights, the WWE Title will be Brock’s.

John Cena’s United States Open Challenge match, tonight.

Moments ago, we see the car has crashed.

The Lucha Dragons Vs The New Day is up now.

New Day wins the match, and we heard Primetime Players talking during commentary.  In 13 days, Tag Titles are on the line in a 3-on-2 Handicap match.

Who answers the opportunity against John Cena?  We find out, next.

We are in Chicago, and we find out “Stone Cold” Steve Austin is on the cover of WWE2K16.

John Cena is ready, and in 13 days, he will be ready to face Kevin Owens.

We see footage of Owens Vs Balor this past Saturday morning in Japan, at Beast in the East.

Cena thanks the chants, it seems the Chicago fans are a bit upset.  Is that because Kevin Owens lost the NXT Title this past Saturday morning?  Never fear, because The Champ Is Here.

We will see a title match tonight, and Cena has had many memorable title matches.  Some advice to the man who comes through the curtain, be prepared for a battle.

Kevin Owens comes out.

This is the worst part of the show, because it’s the same crap coming out of Cena’s mouth, but he needs the United States Championship, he was willing to wait, but let’s do this tonight, right here, right now.

Cesaro shows up.

Nobody wants to hear Owens cry about Saturday’s loss, so step aside, because if anyone needs a title shot, it’s Cesaro.

Owens is jealous because Cesaro had Cena beat, and was about to do something Owens can’t do, make Cena tap.  So get out of the ring, because now it’s Cesaro Vs Cena.

And that’s our main event.

Cena wins with an AA on the middle rope.  Both men threw everything they could, and the match felt something special.

Kevin Owens shows up, and tries to give Cena a Pop-Up Powerbomb, but Cena counters it with an AA.  We end the show seeing the carnage Brock Lesnar left with the Cadillac tonight.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Tonight’s show was a million times better than last week, but then again, after last week, anything would be better.

We had Brock crush a car, and crush the spirits of a young champion.

We also saw a very good main event, and whether you like the man or not, John Cena has made the US Title relevant again, and if Kevin Owens wins, we need to see more open challenges.

I expect to see an official contract signing next week, what were your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me.

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.

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.
