Renee Young welcomes us to the show. The panel consists of Bryan Saxton, Corey Graves, and Booker T.

2 matches are set in the Kick-Off show. Fatal 4-Way match for the Tag Team Titles. Also, Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

This could be a history moment for any of these wrestlers to win.

Time to go to the Social Media Lounge, with Tom Phillips. Use #Wrestlemania to talk. In the second hour, we will be joined by Hall of Famer Lita.

Rusev Vs Cena match is profiled now.

Rusev is backstage, Lana approaches him saying she would never show compassion again. Rusev brings up tonight, he crushes Cena, and America dies.

I guess all is forgiven.

Tonight, Cena will face Rusev for the United States Title.

John Cena on Kimmel this past week is being shown.

Another match that we will see is HHH Vs Sting.

Eden is backstage, hoping to get a word from HHH.

Sting Vs HHH video is now being shown.

Booker T shares his thoughts on the match, knowing both men.

Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury run into Gerald Briscoe and Pat Patterson.

Does Seth Rollins stand a chance against “The Viper”?

Tonight, on the Kick-Off show, we will have a Fatal 4-Way. Kidd and Cesaro Vs Los Matadores Vs The New Day Vs The Uso’s.

And, we will have Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Clips of this week, featuring WWE stars on TV. Wrestlemania Week is here.

Tom Phillips has Lita as his guest in the Social Media Lounge.

There could always be a possibility of Team Besties Vs The Bellas someday. Hmmmmm.

We hear from Jon Gruden and his analysis of Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal contenders.

Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal is set now.

Curtis Axel is eliminated. Such a shame.

Big Show wins Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Ryback was in the Final 4, but the story here is Damien Sandow finally stood up to The Miz, and eliminated him. But at the end of the match, Big Show eliminates Sandow, and wins the big one.

We are just 10 minutes away from Wrestlemania.

The IC Title Ladder Match will kick off Wrestlemania, and we see a video package of that.

Pat Patterson hangs up the IC Title, and we start now.

Aloe Blacc is singing the national anthem to kick the show off.

The Ladder match for the IC Title begins the show. Daniel Bryan Vs Dolph Ziggler Vs Bad News Barrett Vs R-Truth Vs Stardust Vs Luke Harper Vs Dean Ambrose.

Daniel Bryan found a way to win the IC Title for the first time in his career. It came down to he and Ziggler, who traded blows. But Daniel was able to get Ziggler off the ladder, and make history.

Orton Vs Rollins is up now.

Orton wins with a RKO, when Rollins was trying a Curb Stomp. A good match between these two, and I think they are doing this because Rollins is cashing in on Money in the Bank tonight.

Just a hunch.

“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey is in attendance.

Sting Vs HHH is now.

HHH just gave us an amazing Terminator entrance.

Here we go.

HHH wins in a No DQ match where we see HHH and DX, Vs Sting and NWO all face off. But Hunter uses the top issue of the sledge-hammer, and pins Sting.

What a fun match this was.

At the end of the match, HHH wants to face Sting one more time, and this time to shake his hand/

The two men embrace, and this was a moment here.

Some new shows are coming to WWE Network, some sound good, others do not. But they are trying.

Marie Menonous is interviewing Daniel Bryan. All of the former IC Champions congratulate Daniel.

Pat Patterson, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, Ric Flair (Woooooooo!!), and Bret “The Hitman” Hart all congratulate him, and while they do The Yes Chants, we hear from Ron Simmons.

Damn!!

Travis Barker, Skylar Grey, and Kid Ink all perform the Wrestlemania theme song.

The halftime portion of the show is complete. The Wrestlemania panel is having a good time. Now divas action with The Bellas Vs The Dream Team of AJ Lee and Paige.

AJ and Paige win the match with AJ making Nikki tap out to Black Widow.

It’s been one full year now since Paige debuted in WWE. What a run she has had, her first Wrestlemania moment.

Now we get the Hall of Fame moment. A fun night, seeing that show. And they are all out on the stage.

John Cena Vs Rusev is next.

Cena wins the United States Title when Rusev ran into Lana, who looked worried for Rusev. It is turned to an AA and Cena wins. Rusev picks up his first loss.

Rusev is screaming at Lana for costing him the match as she is being tended to.

The Wrestlemania Kick-Off panel is here, and we see what happened earlier today, with Cesaro and Tyson Kidd retaining their titles.

We also saw Big Show win Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Stephanie McMahon and HHH are here to announce that they set an outdoor attendance record of over 76,000 people.

Stephanie now completely heels the crowd and says this wouldn’t be possible without her. And of course her husband.

HHH tells us the truth hurts, because not only did he beat Sting tonight, he felt that he beat anyone that has been against them. He feels so good about that, it feels he beat all 76,166 fans here. And he feels like he beat millions more, watching WWE Network.

HHH owned Sting, just like he owns every single superstar and diva in the back. And he owns us, because at the end of the day, The Authority always wins.

If ya smell what The Rock is cooking….

Here comes The Rock.

The crowd is loving this moment, and frankly, so is Stephanie McMahon.

You don’t own them, and you sure don’t own The Rock. What you fail to see is The Rock is an East Bay boy. The Rock was born in The East Bay.

The Rock sees it, they have two choices. HHH can go in the back and dress like Terminator again, or they can create a Wrestlemania moment right here, right now. One of the biggest rivalries of all time. The pie eating, jabroni beating, kicking HHH’s ass until he can’t stop.

HHH speaks now, and says they had a hell of a rivalry. He remembers kicking his ass throughout most of it, so he has nothing to prove to The Rock.

Just like how The Rock left his heart in San Francisco, it’s clear HHH left his balls in Stamford, Connecticut.

Stephanie tells Rock he has to feed his own ego, because he knows The Rock would be nothing without The McMahon family.

He can talk about “High Chief” Peter Maivia. He can talk about Rocky Johnson, or Dwayne Johnson, but he wouldn’t be anything without Vince McMahon, Vince McMahon Jr. or Stephanie McMahon.

Oddly enough, no mention of Shane McMahon, which the fans picked up on.

Rock said that it’s funny she brings up Johnson, because she wouldn’t be running this place without Vince’s Johnson.

Stephanie slapped Rock, and ordered him to get out of the ring. This is HER company.

She berates him, while he leaves. But Rock sees someone in the crowd that is willing to fight.

Ronda Rousey.

Rock introduces us to Ronda. While Rock wouldn’t hit a woman, she would.

Stephanie tells Rock they are friends, she was there watching her match at last year’s Summerslam.

Rock reminds Steph that Ronda kicks ass, and Steph says if this was a MMA ring, she would agree, but this is a squared circle, this is HER ring.

Ronda tells Steph that her ring is any ring.

Now Stephanie berates Ronda, and Rock reminds her that the look Ronda is giving is right before she whips some ass.

HHH now gets into it, and The Rock fights with HHH, with Ronda giving HHH a hip toss.

Now Stephanie dares Ronda to take action, and Ronda twists her arm, until Stephanie pleads for Ronda to let go.

Ronda flings Steph out of HER ring. What we just saw was a Wrestlemania Moment of The Rock and Ronda Rousey whipping Steph and HHH.

We go from that moment, to this moment.

Bray Wyatt Vs The Undertaker is next.

Undertaker grew out his hair a bit, and looked in tremendous shape. He defeated Bray with a Tombstone Piledriver. We had a segment here when Bray was doing his spider walk, and Taker sat up, doing his Taker sit.

Just an incredible moment.

Chris Jericho is bringing his podcast, on Monday April 6th, after Raw, on WWE Network. That should be fun.

Our main event, Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns is now.

Wow, an incredible ending that felt very, very rushed.

These two men beat the hell out of each other. Reigns took 10 suplexes, Lesnar took 3 Superman Punches. We had 3 spears, 3 F5’s, but nobody was pinned.

Then…

We hear Seth Rollins music, and he cashes in on MITB breifcase, and turns this into a Triple Threat match.

So….

we have a new WWE Champion, when Seth Rollins hits a Curbstomp, and pins Reigns.

That is how we end the show, with Seth Rollins celebrating the title win, and tomorrow night on Raw should be something else.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A very fun 6 hours that didn’t seem to drag at all, and every match lived up to its billing. I just wonder though what they will do with Reigns. I like the guy, but there were many boos for him, and no matter what happens, they hated any offensive move he made. Do they turn him heel?

And how pissed off with Brock be tomorrow night on Raw?

So much happened, and the night after Mania usually has fun Raw’s too, so we’ll see where we go from here.

What did you think of the show? Send me your thoughts, and we’ll watch Raw tomorrow night.

WWE Hall of Fame 3/28/15

Tonight, on the even of Wrestlemania, WWE honors the ones who have paved the way for them.  Randy “Macho Man” Savage, Kevin Nash, Alundra Blaze, Arnold Schwarzennegar, Rikishi, The Bushwackers, Tatsumi Fujinama, and Larry Zbyszko, with Connor “The Crusher” Michalek will receive The Warrior Award.

The ceremony begins in 5 minutes.

It began with one man, Andre The Giant. 2 decades later, it has expanded into the biggest names in the industry. Icons, legends, larger than life personalities.

We are live in Santa Clara, California. Jerry “The King” Lawler is our host of the event.

We kick the show off with Rikishi.

King introduces us to The Uso’s, who are inducting their father.

Jimmy informs us that they are from the Bay area, and they are proud to be home. They are here to be honoring their father.

Rikishi developed many different characters, some worked, some didn’t. But the one character they remember isn’t the athletic ability, or the blond locks. It was the thong. What was that? But that put them through college. That put food on their tables. Bought Christmas gifts. And they never recieved the Stinkface. The ones that did aren’t laughing. They pointed out to Booker T, which was funny.

But here is the man who was a hero to them, Rikishi.

Kishi is sporting his ring. Every wrestler dreams of being in the WWE Hall of Fame, but that dream has been a reality. He has come from one of the hardest working families, not just in WWE, but wrestling history, the Anoa’i family, otherwise known as The Samoan Family.

For 50 years, one part of the Anoi’a family has been a part of the WWE. Including “High Chief” Peter Maivia, The Wild Samoans, Afa, The late, great Yokozuna, The Rock, Umaga, The Uso’s, and Roman Reigns.

Kishi thanks his father, and wishes that his mother was here witnessing this. He thanks his children, and the most important part of him, his wife. Kishi thanks the fans as well. Without them, he wouldn’t be here.

Kishi feels like his life has come full circle, he is now training with his brother and David “Gangrel” Heath. He gives a shout out to one of his students, Rusev and wishes The Uso’s good luck tomorrow at Wrestlemania.

For 31 years, he has been a part of this business. He remembers all of those moments, every birthdays he has missed, every fan that he has entertained. Every character he has portrayed. Every moment he has stepped through the curtain, he remembers every Stinkface. But he will remmber this moment he has with us, most than all.

Kishi is honored to be inducted into the 2015 Hall of Fame, where he was born, and where he was raised.

Rikishi speaks Samoan, and sends a message to his family.

Now comes the moment we all have waited for. Rikishi is dancing with his 2 boys.

Our next inductee is “The Living Legend” Larry Zbszko.

Bruno Sammartino is inducting Larry.

Bruno talks about the history he has with Larry, even beginning when Larry was ready to be trained as a wrestler coming to Bruno’s home. Bruno encouraged him to keep working on his trade, keep working on wrestling. Bruno promised Larry he would get him into pro wrestling, if he gets a college degree. Zbyszko worked on that, and Bruno broke him into the business.

After Bruno was impressed with Larry’s style, he talked to Vince McMahon, Sr. to bring him in. Larry was a very ambitious man, wanted to be at the top, and gave Bruno the idea of turning on him and the heat he recieved was tremendous. Vince Sr. got behind him, and the two would proceed to sell out just about every major arena.

Larry wrestled over 20 years, he decided to call it quits, and contribute as a broadcaster for another 10 years in WCW. Ladies and gentlemen, Larry Zbyszko.

Larry’s dream since he was 16 years old was to be a professional wrestler. His dream is to be just like his hero, Bruno Sammartino. Larry remembers going to wrestling shows with his Dad at 16 years old. His mother knew what Larry wanted to do, so she had a listing of where Bruno’s kids were at, and Bruno’s home address. So Larry kept driving by there, but could never see him. Until one day, he saw Bruno standing outside by his pool, getting a suntan. Larry couldn’t help it, he got out of a car, and approached Bruno.

Larry tripped over Bruno’s hedges. He got up, told Bruno he is a big fan of his and his goal is to be a professional wrestler. Bruno started his career out, and that era was unforgettable. He drove down the road with greats as Captain Lou Albano, Andre The Giant, The Valliant Brothers, and on and on. But he can’t help but think what would have happened if Bruno had not helped him. He just doesn’t know why Bruno helped him.

This is amazing.

Larry just seems very overwhelmed, and emotional about this.

Bruno was very gracious to get into the ring with him, when Larry’s career was frustrating. Again, it’s amazing when Bruno could have kicked him out if his yard, but he didn’t. He can’t explain why.

Going up and down the roads, then all of a sudden, destiny took over. And he drove everyone around him crazy.

Larry talks about Bruno’s career, when he gave up wrestling and took up commentary after Bruno broke his neck. But something was missing, and off they went.

The crowd is showing respect, thanking Larry when he is overwhelmed by this moment.

Larry can’t express evenough thank you to Bruno, but from the bottom of his heart, he thanks Bruno for giving him an opportunity, when he didn’t have to do it. Another man he wants to thank dearly is Mr. Vince McMahon, Sr. He drove the man nuts, he still believed in Larry’s idea, and rented Shea Stadium anyway. He gave birth to a new era of wrestling, paving way to national broadcasts, and Pay Per Views.

47 glorious years ago, Larry found a rabbit hole, in a shed of hedges. And Bruno held the door open of that rabbit hole, and he still doesn’t understand why. But here he is, Bruno holds the door open again as Larry leaves the rabbit hole. And he is wearing the very same ring his hero is wearing. And now, he gets to be a big wrestling fan again.

Now that this dream is over, he gets to go home and become a wrestling fan. And he wants to say something to the wrestling fans he has wanted to say for a long time. Without the power, there would never be a dream. Larry has felt the love of the millions of fans chanting his name, and we get Larry chants.

Mean Gene Okerlund announces him as “The Living Legend”, just like his hero. And he has felt the wrath of fans throwing objects, he has been shot at in Albany, New York, and he has been stabbed in the ass by the world’s greatest fans in the world. He hopes our dreams come true too.

Our next induction is Alundra Blaze.

Natalya is here to induct Alundra.

There are those women who want to be princesses, some who want to work, and some who just want to kick ass.

Alundra was a woman ahead of her time. She was a revolutionalry, and a trail blazer. She took the WWE Women’s Title, and threw it in the trash on WCW TV. It was the start of what is now called “The Monday Night War”. It was a courageous act by a woman who was revolutionary.

When she found out she was going to induct Alundra, she had to tell someone and happened to talk to Arn Anderson.

A funny story Arn told her. She was working on a promo and all of the wrestlers were waiting. Alundra is a perfecionist, and Arn wanted to do the promo, then go work out. Words were exchanged and Arn was running away, with Alundra chasing him with her heels.

Yeah, I bet you didn’t see this coming did you? Neither did Alundra.

She talks about how legendary The Hart Family is, and is honored to be a part of the Hall of Fame. After 21 years, what took them so long?

A stuntman brought her into the business, introducing her to Eddie Sharkey. Hence the word Sharkey. She started wrestling with zero money, and her car repossessed. That’s what you do Madusa.

But then she met Wahoo McDaniel, and he introduced her to AWA. She worked with Sherri Martel, learned her trade, worked all over the world, which led her to compete in WCW, and WWE.

Madusa brings up the one woman who paved the way for all of the women, The Fabulous Moolah. She wanted to thank Vern Gagne, “Mr. perfect” Curt Hennig, Diamond Dallas Page, who should be a future Hall of Famer someday.

Now she pays homeage to her Japanese roots, with Bull Nakano, and so many other greats she shared the ring with for 3 years.

Her newfound family, all watching her on WWE Network, for just $9.99 a month. Her motorcross family.

She brings up people who have worked with her, doing their part to with her, people like Evan Kourageous, who had the stones to put her over and lose the Crusierweight Title. Lelani Kai, Heidi Lee Morgan.

She wants to thank Paul Heyman, her Dangerous Alliance members. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Arn Anderson, “Beatiful” Bobby Eaton, Larry Zbyszko, and of course, the late, great “Ravishin” Rick Rude.

She is honored to be a part of the same class as Randy “Macho Man” Savage. Team Madness, with Nora Greenwald, Stephanie Bowers. She wants to thank WWE, for giving them this platform.

She wants to thank her husband, who is currently employed, but they arranged for him to be here, for this occassion.

Incredible moment here.

She wants the current armed forces members to stand up and get recognized.

Now let’s get to some fun shit, which was bleeped.

Now, let’s address the elephant in the room….The Title.

She was sitting on the toilet, when she recieved a call from Eric Bischoff. He called to offer her a contract, and she unknowingly dropped the first bomb in the Monday Night Wars.

When he first suggested the idea, she didn’t want to do it, but she did it for one reason, job security. WCW wanted to do it to get WWE’s attention, and they did.

Forever she is known as the “bitch” that dropped the title in the trash, and she has moved on from it. She owns that moment, and has moved on. So shall we.

So we have Natalya bring out a trash can. It’s filled with bra and panties, some good JR’s BBQ sauce. Bischoff’s book, and she is still friends with him, and ahh yes, the WWE Divas Title.

Madusa is the current Divas Champion, for over 20 years. She drives a truck, and has been a 2-time Motorcross Champion. The only woman who has 2 major titles in a male dominated sport.

Some may call her Madusa, some may call her Alunda Blayze.

That was an awesome speech there.

Next is Connor “The Crusher”.

We see the revealing Warrior statue, and now we present the Warrior Reward to someone who shows us spirit, and fight. Showing us a true hero, and that award this year goes to Connor “The Crusher” Mihalek.

Oh wow.

Conor was a victim of Pediatric Cancer, and he passed away at the age of 8. He will always be the biggest WWE fan.

Warrior’s family will get an opportunity to present this award, which in itself is very special they share this moment too.

Last year, her husband, Warrior was honored and she was watching on. She was proud of her husband, proud to be that should she had when he cried, but most of all, she was honored to be his wife.

Even in the days she lost him, she felt she had to empower a Warrior woman, and that is what she did. That strength sustained herself, and her two daughters. She thanks the people who have helped her family over the years.

Such a moving and touching speech, words can’t describe. But she thanks her daughters for being them, and allowing her to be their mom.

She thanks her neighbors, for helping out. Also thanks the legion of warriors. They have helped them through this, and she loves them.

Thank you to WWE Universe, to WWE Divas, Superstars, and Corporate Division. This is like a family, and she appreicates that.

She thanks her family, she thanks Paul and Stephanie, and so many other people who have helped her take that step forward, which is what we are going to do now.

Connor was such an amazing kid, and he is the very definition of what a Warrior is supposed to be.

And while her husband and Connor have stepped into parts unkown, their lives were ultimate.

She challenges us to make a donation to Connor’s Care, in honor of Warrior. We can help fight Cancer. If we can raise $1 million, she might do something crazy, run to the ring, shake the ropes, and maybe even body slam someone. I couldn’t hear the person’s name, because the feed kicked out, but I am thinking it’s Hulk Hogan.

She is kidding, of course.

She introduces us to Daniel Bryan, who will induct Connor.

Daniel is trying to control the crowd, because this isn’t about him. What he does on TV isn’t real, Connor was. Connor inspired him. When he first saw him on Youtube, and Connor issued to meet Daniel, he had to. And the moment he met him, he stole his heart. It’s not because he’s cute because he was super cute. Not because he was charismatic, because he was. But because what spoke to him from the start was his strength.

He was a kid who at 3 years old was diagnosed with brain cancer. He was going in and out of chemotherapy. And despite that, you wouldn’t see that in him. When you met him, you saw strength.

When he first met him, he wasn’t doing the yes chants, he was doing the no chants because the company did not want him to be cheered. Connor when he met Daniel said he doesn’t like the fans to chant yes. He asked why not, because Daniel doesn’t want him to.

Daniel asked Connor if he can put Daniel in the No Lock, and Connor responded by saying he can put everyone in a No Lock.

When he won the WWE World Title last year, at Wrestlemania 30, we had confetti throwing all over Daniel, but he could see Connor, sitting in the front row for over 4 hours with a big smile on his face. He saw his father holding him, and all he could see was a father holding his son.

We have Connor’s Cure, raising over $250,000 to cure cancer for little children. And he wants to honor Connor’s father, Steve Michalek.

Steve wants to thank Connor, because without his spirit, he wouldn’t be able to do this. He thanks Dana Warrior, for handling the death of her husband, and taking care of her 2 daughters through this. He wants to thank Daniel Bryan for caring so much for a boy that saw him as a hero. Connor was such a big WWE fan, and it started with Daniel.

Steve’s favorite superstar was Ultimate Warrior. He ran out, shook the ropes, and controlled the crowd. Just like Daniel does, they both control the crowd in their own way and what better person to receive The Warrior Spirit award than Connor.

He thanks Stephanie and Paul, who helped start Connor’s Cure. WWE Universe is making sure Connor’s Cure is here to stay, and making a difference. And thank to you the other families who are going through this too, and are sharing this together.

While Connor is here in spirit, he should be here, because he owned the room anywhere he went. He said what he thought, and was very confident.

He told Kane and Daniel Bryan, then WWE World Tag Team Champion, he and his brother are the real Tag Team Champions. He also had a chance to knock out “The King of Kings” HHH, and even had the knowledge to hold the leg when he pinned HHH. He had his Wrestlemania Moment, sharing a hug with the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, while confetti was all over.

The doctor told them Connor would not be able to make it through Wrestlemania, but he faced adversity, and surpassed that. He had become known for so long, that people would recognize him, even in the elevator. His dad would joke saying he has become a celebrity, and Connor just said to him “Dad, don’t you know I am going to be famous somday”.

Now he will be with the Connor’s Cure.

He brings out his little brother, Jackson to say one message.

He was Connor’s Tag Team Partner.

Very emotional speech.

Now come The Bushwackers.

We hear from John Laurinaitis, who are inducting them.

John started his career, as the flag bearer of The Sheepherders…AKA The Bushwackers.

They started the ring together for 35 years. They developed into many names. Dusty Rhodes brought them together with John, and they were roomates for one year. But shaped John’s career, and marched on to WWE.

They weren’t just brothers to John, they were family.

They came to the states in 1972, before I was born. Just incredible.

They had wonderful mates over the years, one of them was Killer Kowalski. They met him when he was in New Zealand, he suggested they come to the states.

They also wrestled for Stampede Wrestling, for Stu Hart. They had fond love for Stu and his entire family.

They worked for Jim Crockett Promotions, and from there was united with Laurinaitis. When it was time to move on, they went from The Sheepherders, to licking kids’ heads and fun loving Bushwackers.

They thank 4 people that had been truly special in their lives. “Rwody” Roddy Piper, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase, and “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan.

Three of the four men come up, and they shake thweir hand. Hacksaw wasn’t near the front line, but it was very touching. Especially funny to see Dibiase do The Bushwacker dance.

One more lick for each guy, to cap it all off.

Our next induction is Tatsumi Fujinami.

Ric Flair is inducting him, which brings the fans to their feet. Flair puts over Tatsumi. He comepted in WWE, back in 1979 and won the Jr. Heavyweight Title at the time.

Flair puts Vader over, who was in attendance. He was someone that wrestled Fujinami, knows what kind of a worker he was.

Here comes Fujinami, giving us many thanks for being a part of this.

A very short thank you, but very effective.

Our next inductee is Randy “Macho Man” Savage.

Hulk Hogan is inducting Savage.

Hogan brings up Wrestlemania 3, when Savage Vs Steamboat and Hogan Vs Andre headlined the show. He saw that match, and knew that the match was special. Savage was such a consumate professional, calling him at all hours of the day, suggesting they work out and talk about ideas for their matches, or ideas for their storylines.

He tells us that Savage got very intense in his promos when they faced each other, to make Hogan a better professional.

So Hogan brings out Lanny Poffo, Randy’s brother.

Lanny starts off with a poem, but goes on about Randy’s compassion for Special Olympics. He treated them all like his own kids. Randy would bring Lanny to some of these events, Lanny would do poems, while Randy in complete costume attire made those children’s day.

He thanks the men and women that were affected in Randy’s life. He thanks WWE for giving the fans an opportunity now to see Randy’s career on WWE Network, and know what kind of a performer he is. He talks about their mother doing a great job in Randy’s biography, and he thanks Randy’s wife for being such an inspiration on Randy, and keeping him such a happy man, before his death.

Our next induction is Arnold Schwarzennegar.

They show his bit he did on one of the first episodes of Smackdown, he decked HHH. Before this, we see a commerical of the upcoming Terminator: Genysis movie.

HHH is inducting Arnold.

He takes about that moment he had with Arnold, he wouldn’t miss punching him. His nose wasn’t always this big, it’s still swollen.

Arnold has such a great American story. He came to the states on a dream. Competed, and won bodybuilding contests, which led him to making movies, giving us such memorable lines that will be remember, forver. The question becomes what if that hadn’t been done. He never came to the states, we never would have known the impact. “I’ll be back” would never be the same.

HHH brings in Arnold.

Arnold puts over HHH, talking about how we went from a wrestler to a man running this entire company. In one of his first bodybuilding competitions, one of the judges was Bruno Sammartino. He also has a friendship with Mark Henry, going back to around 1996, when he was competing for Powerlifting. Wrestling has a big influence on life as well.

Arnold tackled the movies. “It’s not a tumor”, or “Get into the chopper” was a part of his life. But then he becamse the govenor of the state of Clifornia.

He puts Vince over, as well as the entire WWE Universe, and appreciates this very much.

Our last inductor is Kevin Nash, or Diesel.

HBK comes out to induct him. Shawn had a script, and he tore it pieces/ He touched on forst seeing him when Kev was with WCW, he was working as Vinnie Vegas then. It made Shawn laugh, and he was looking for a bodyguard, and talked to Rick Stiener about him. Kevin still had a WCW contract, but he told them he wanted out, and would go back to work at a strip club. The company gave him his release, and Diesel immedately took this to the other side of the building, faxed the relase to J.J. Dillon. He flew out to Albany, and the rest they say is history.

Shawn talks about their run, Vince saw how hot he was, and wanted to push Kev, giving him the title. It happened, the night Diesel beat Bob Backlund at a MSG show in 8 seconds. After the match, Nash took Shawn into a shower, and thanking him for giving him this opportunity. He is a true friend, and will always remember that.

Now, Nash and Hall would leave in a year and a half. But the truth is Nash was a pioneer. He got WCW to give them both guaranteed contracts. None of them would be here if it wasn’t for the two of them. He deserves this moment, and here comes Nash.

Nash brings up his Master Blaster days, making him shave his head, first day he got in the building. Then we go from that to Oz. His favorite time was with DDP, Vegas Connection. He always wanted to give up every now and then, but DDP told him he would be a big star, and to stay.

He got to WWE, he was always cool. Talking about drinking many beers for 23 straight nights. Vnce wanted to see him personally. Nash had expected to being fired, but in this case, Vince wanted to push Nash to the end.

They left WWE for one reason, guaranteed contract. The monsy they were making was ridiulous, but what could you do? Now, everyone has a guaranteed contract, and he likes to think he had a major reason behindt thay. He thanks for the men and women who have worked him, to make Nash better.

We also get another Kliq reunion to end the show on a good note.

WWE Monday Night Raw 3/23/15…The Final Push For Wrestlemania

We are 6 days away from Wrestlemania.  So expect a loaded show here, again.  Which makes it fun.  Whether we like the buildup or not, it’s still Wrestlemania.  We will hear the latest inductee to the Hall of Fame and if you don’t know, I won’t spoil it, but I did get a text this afternoon, which I hate, because I always wanted to know on the show, as opposed to earlier in the day.

We will see Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns have an in-ring confrontation, which should be good.

Raw is now.

We are in Los Angeles, a sold-out Staples Arena, where we will have a Face-To-Face with Reigns and Lesnar.

We will also see as our guest stars, Snoop Dogg and Bill Simmons.

We hear Sting’s music, but is he here?

Yes he is.

14 years ago today, WWE bought WCW. Oh, I remember that because I was at Raw, in Cleveland. Such an eerie night, and very surreal.

So this is what it feels like to kick off Raw? The crowd loves that, and as do I.

Sting has been known as the WCW “Soldier”, he has watched HHH gain power through manipulation and greed. He is not here to fight for WCW, he is here to take HHH down.

Enter Stephanie McMahon.

So this is what it feels like to be in the ring with The Stinger? The last holdout from WCW. Congratulations, he knows what it’s like to make it to the big-time. Soak it all up Sting.

Stephanie is the spoiled little brat that has had everything she wanted, served on a silver platter. But welcome Stephanie.

She can understand how Sting feels intimidated being in this ring. She is the daughter of the man who single-handedly ripped his company. He was a big fish in a very little pond, and when they bought WCW, they never heard from him. Stephanie compared Sting to a little dog, who is loyal to its owner, but at the end of the day, the dog is very stupid.

Didn’t Stephanie have a dog named Fifi, who liked to crap all over Chris Jericho?

Anyway, Sting is just a stupid dog who likes to paint his face up, and be a freak.

Sting liked that, and gave us a OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

She tried to slap him, but Sting caught the slap, and this brings out HHH.

HHH has his trusted sledge-hammer ready, but Sting has his bat. I mean really, did HHH think Sting wouldn’t use his trusted weapon with him?

So of course, HHH backs up, with Sting trying to bring him in.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show. They tell us that we get to vote for Randy Orton’s opponent tonight. Either Kane, Big Show, or Seth Rollins and J & J Security.

I truly hope the fans vote for Big Show, because I don’t want to see another handicap match. Besides, we will see it on Smackdown anyway.

AJ Lee will face one of the Bellas, I didn’t hear Cole say who she will face, but we heard the “Oh….oh….oh….need a day” or whatever that Diva theme is.

But next, it’s Dean Ambrose and R-Truth Vs Luke Harper and Stardust.

Ambrose and Truth won the match, with truth pinning Harper with What’s Up. Bad News Barrett was doing commentary.

Tonight, Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns will have a face-to-face tonight. And next, a profile on Roman Reigns.

Renee Young introduces the athletes who will be competing at this summer’s Special Olympics.

Roman Reigns interview is playing now.

This Sunday, it will be Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns.

Next, Bill Simmons will be out here, for commentary. Oh boy.

The Miz and Damien Mizdow interviewed Will Farrell and Kevin Hart, stars of the upcoming “Get Hard” movie.

10-man tag action is up next.

Ryback’s team wins the 10 man tag, with Shellshock, pinning The Miz.

Ryback must win this Sunday, at Wrestlemania in Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

We see footage from last Monday night, when Sting and Randy Orton were side by side, fighting The Authority.

We will find out who Orton faces, next.

Orton will face….

Rollins, and J & J Security.

Oh good, another handicap match.

Orton wins with a RKO, pinning the legendary Jamie Noble. I had to take that from @Seanfranchise6. Just too funny.

Wrestlemania, United States Title will be on the line, John Cena Vs Rusev.

We see Cena’s interview from WWE.com last week.

AJ and Paige aren’t seeming to get along right now, they will find out who faces Nikki Bella, next.

So I guess it will be Paige Vs Nikki now.

Okay, I am confused.

Nikki Bella won the match when Paige had Nikki beat with a RamPaige, but Nikki kicked out at 2. Nikki and Paige fought outside. AJ attacked Brie, turned her back. When Paige approached her, AJ elbowed Paige and Nikki hit a Rack Attack for the win.

After the match, the two partners at Wrestlemania were fighting each other.

A very good match, and a great ending.

This past week on Smackdown, the only reason to had watched was to see a Gauntlet match with 6 of the 8 participants of the Ladder match. Ziggler pinned Bryan.

Tonight, one on one, Ziggler will face Bryan and we get to choose who the special guest ref will be.

Snoop Dogg is next.

Snoop is dancing with the divas, he has his touch.

Snoop brings up Wrestlemania this weekend, with #Snoopmania running wild.

But now, we have #AxelMania running wild.

AxelMania is here to stay.

Snoop has been waiting for Axel, since he pouted off on Twitter. AxelMania, SnoopMania. But you forgot the most important one….

Hulkamania.

Hulk Hogan is in the house, brother.

Well, let me tell you something, brother. A little story about the Mania, Jack. When he pressed that giant over his shoulders, he knew Wrestlemania would last forever. When he first heard Snoop Dogg run his first track, he knew he would be owning the billboard charters, forever. But what about AxelMania? What is he smoking, brother?

Axel rips off his shirt, Hulk Hogan style and asks him what is he going to do. Hogan hits him, Snoop throws him over the top rope and reveals he is a Hulkamaniac too, Jack.

And we have the two men pose.

Brock Lesnar video is playing now.

Tonight, Brock and Reigns go face-to-face.

The Kick-Off match this Sunday will be the Tag Team Title match, a Fatal 4-Way match of The Usos Vs Los Matadores Vs Cesaro and Kidd, and The New Day.

Cesaro, Kidd, and Nattie Vs Los Matadores and El Torito, Smackdown rematch is set.

Los Matadores and Torito win.

Kane shows up, and orders Barrett to relinquish his IC Title so he can hang it up for tonight’s match of Bryan Vs Ziggler. Barrett does not like this, it’s his title. He will have to earn it back this Sunday.

We come back and will see Swagger Vs Rusev, now.

Rusev holds The Accolade on Swagger, and wins. Rusev continues to hold on to the hold, because Lana isn’t here.

But here comes Cena.

Rusev attacks Cena, and he is destroying the announce table.

Rusev throws Cena through the table, and its a glorious scene.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw….Cena being put through a table.

Bray Wyatt comes out now.

Bray calls us liars, and he is not, which is why he will take The Undertaker out of his pasture, for good.

We hear thunder.

This is the aura we have become so addicted to. Can we feel it? But these spirits belong to Wyatt now. He is the judge, he judges the dead, the living. The Undertaker is guilty. And at Wrestlemania, there is no redemption, no shield. After Sister Abigail, Bray will take his place as the new face of fear.

And at Wrestlemania, Undertaker can finally rest in peace.

Bray Wyatt is a star.

We can vote now to see who the special guest referee is for Daniel Bryan Vs Dolph Ziggler match will be, next.

The stars are out tonight.

Kevin Nash is the final inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Burger King placement ad with Tyson Kidd and Natalya. Gotta love those chicken fries.

Daniel Bryan Vs Dolph Ziggler is up now.

Dean Ambrose is the special guest referee, so here we go.

Ziggler wins with Zig Zag, and Ambrose awards him by giving him Dirty Deeds, now we see all 8 men fighting in the ring.

Paul Heyman tells Brock it’s time.

The confrontation is next.

Here Comes The Pain!!

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman, and his client is the WWE World Champion. Heyman even mocks everything that he says, because we have all heard him talk about this match. But here is the thing, Brock is a monster. He is the kind of guy that will blow someone’s door down, and hunt you down. So can Roman Reigns say that? Better yet, at Wrestlemania we will either find out that Heyman is telling us the truth, and that is Roman Reigns, though as good as he is, can’t beat Brock Lesnar. Or, Roman can prove he can, and everything Heyman has said is a lie. We all will tune in, because this is a Brock Lesnar attraction.

Now comes the single dumbest thing you can do to build a Wrestlemania main event….

Here comes Reigns, in his glory. Heyman leaves. Brock holds up his title, and he smiles. Reigns takes the title from him, and he raises the title. We end the show, better yet, we end the build to Wrestlemania with a lame ass tug of war with the WWE World Title.

Now, I was expecting a bit more, like I don’t know, how about a promo from Roman? But no, THIS IS WHERE THE SHOW ENDS!!!!

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was one of the worst Wrestlemania builds in the modern era I can truly remember. It’s not that there weren’t high points, I loved Sting Vs HHH build, and Bray Wyatt has been incredible.

But WWE had 2 months to build Roman Reigns up as a serious threat. But the Number One Contender lost two matches to Big Show, and Seth Rollins. You know, the same man who is facing the one who beat The Undertaker at Wrestlemania.

How is that possible?

But now, we have a tug of war with the most important title in the industry. Really?

Maybe, I am making too much of this, but come on Vince, you can do better. Especially with NXT valuing their World Heavyweight Title, you need to steal some ideas of theirs.

Hell, TNA did a great build of Lashley Vs Angle, so you can take idead from them, right?

But a tug of war?

Now, Seth Rollins HAS to cash in his briefcase, and walk out as WWE World Champion. It’s not even Roman’s fault, because I like him. He has the potential. When he was with The Shield, he had such a “Big Daddy Cool” vibe, so why mess with that?

But as I pointed out in the beginning of this, Wrestlemania will be an event, and we all will be watching. But the build surely could have been better, no? Or am I over thinking these things? Let me know, I will talk to you all later.

WWE NXT 3/18/15…NXT in C-Bus

Impact Wrestling 3/20/15….Angle Vs Lashley

Tonight, for the first time ever.  Lashley Vs Angle, for the TNA World Heavyweight Title.  We will also see an Ultimate X match for the Tag Team Titles, and a Triple Threat match, for the Knockouts Title.

Impact Wrestling, in Wembley Stadium is now.

We kick the show off with The Wolves defending their Tag Team Titles against The Bromans, and The Revolution, (Manik and Sanada), Ultimate X match.  Robbie E. is still not over losing to Brooke last week, so DJ Z takes his place.

The Wolves retain their titles, by reaching up for them, after everyone was down.

A good way to start the show.

We kick the show off with Ultimate X match, for the Tag Team Titles.

The Wolves retain their title, reaching for them with everyone else down.

A good way to start the show, with Josh Matthews and Taz welcoming us. Tonight, we will see James Storm Vs Matt Hardy in a No DQ match. We will also see Knockout Triple Threat for the Knockout Title. And our main event, Angle Vs Lashley for the World Title.

We see both men entering the building, and we get a tale of the tape.

Austin Aries comes to the ring.

Aries has been out of commission the last two weeks, because of BDC putting him through a table, but they also stole his Feast or Fired briefcase, and wants it now.

Enter Lo-Ki and Joe.

Ki says this briefcase belongs to BDC now, and Aries disagrees. Austin brings up it’s still under his name who has control of a World Title shot, but he proposes a match with Lo-Ki, for the X-Division Title and Austin’s World Title opportunity.

Ki agrees, but he has to go through Joe first.

Joe nails Aries, and our match is now.

Joe is DQ’d when Ki went after Aries and tries to nail him with the briefcase, but Ki misses and hits Joe. Aries kicks the briefcase into Ki’s head, and retreives his briefcase.

But then, Rockstar Spud, complete with a bandanged head runs out, he is cashing in the X-Division Title shot, and….

wins the X-Division Title with an Acid Drop called The Underdog.

Spud celebrates with the fans.

Tonight, Knockout Title match, with Taryn Terrell Vs Gail Kim Vs Awesome Kong.

Also, Lashley Vs Angle. for the World Title.

We cut to the shot outside, and see Magnus and Bram fighting.

They take it inside, and to the ring.

Magnus just beats the hell out of him, after last week, having to kiss Bram’s foot. Mickie James comes out, but slaps Bram too. Bram tries to crawl away and Magnus lays him out with a Powerbomb.

We now hear from the lockerroom about their thoughts for tonight’s historic main event.

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

A hard-fought match here with Taryn rolling up Gail and retained her title, while Kong is outside of the ring.

Storm is backstage and tells Matt Hardy, the time is done. There is nowhere else to run. No friends will help him.

So he will give Matt an opportunity with a throwing the quarter. Heads, he beats him to a bloody pulp, and Tails, he gives him a hosptial bed next to his brother.

He throws the quarter and tells Matt he sure would love to tell him the results.

Storm Vs Hardy in a No DQ match is up next.

Tonight, Lashley Vs Angle clash for the first time ever.

Only the strong survive.

Still to come, Angle Vs Lashley.

The camera guy gets thoughts from Kurt.

He hasn’t had a title shot in over a year, and unfortunately, it’s against one of the most dominating champions. If he wins, he cements his legacy, and that is what he intends to do.

Storm Vs Hardy in a NO DQ match, now.

Storm wins with a Last Call Superkick. The Revolution helped James out with this, and at the end of the segment, Storm hits Hardy in the back of the head with a Cowbell.

Our Main event, Lashley Vs Angle is next,

WWE Monday Night Raw 3/16/15….Now The Buildup Begins

We are 13 days away from Wrestlemania.  We see footage from last week, when Randy Orton laid out Seth Rollins.

We are live in Des Moines, Iowa….Seth Rollins own hometown, and here Rollins, with The Authority begin the show, with no show intro.

What happened last week Rollins says is ultimate betrayal.  He doesn’t expect anyone from Iowa to understand, since he is one of the few that broke out of the state.  He welcomed Randy up with open arms.  He wanted The Authority to move on, and this is a bigger betrayal than what he did with The Shield.  Because what he did to his three friends was a business decision.  This on the other hand was cold and calculated.

Kane, Big Show, Jamie, and Joey all apologized for what Randy did.  They all couldn’t trust him, but they couldn’t stop him.  Jamie tells Seth this hurt Joey the most, and Joey confirms it because he can’t even talk.

Rollins said this did hurt, but the one thing that will hurt the most at the end is Randy Orton’s ego.  Because for years, he got away with everything, and that ends here.  Because he has never messed with someone like Seth Rollins.  And he wants to challenge Rollins to a match at Wrestlemania?  Rollins accepts, but on one stipulation, he agrees to meet with Rollins here tonight.

Enter “The Viper”.

Orton isn’t the face of WWE.  He’s just a guy who made Rollins his little bitch.  And he’s also the guy that will face Rollins tonight.  He knows he will have 5-on-1 tonight, he expects that.  Because he wants to use a little venom on them as well.  And if he makes it to Wrestlemania, then he will end the “future” of WWE.

Tonight, Rollins Vs Orton.

JBL, Michael Cole, and Booker T welcome us to the show.

Tonight, an official contract signing with John Cena Vs Rusev, at Wrestlemania.

Also tonight, an exclusive interview with Brock Lesnar, sharing his views on Roman Reigns.

AJ Lee Vs Nikki Bella is next.

We are 13 days away from Wrestlemania.

Wrestlemania will start at 7 eastern, 4 pacific.  It will be a 4 hour show.

AJ Lee Vs Nikki Bella is set now.

Paige and Brie have words, Brie rams Paige’s head off the steel steps, and Nikki hits a Rack Attack for the win over AJ.

Next, we see footage with what happened this week on Smackdown, with Mark Henry going through a wall, by Roman Reigns.

The Kick-Off Show will be 2 hours, like last year, so everything will start at 5:00 PM, for Wrestlemania.

Last Thursday night, we see Reigns putting Henry through the barricade wall.

Can Roman Reigns do the impossible, and defeat Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania?  We will hear from The Beast later tonight.

Renee Young is standing by with Kane and Big Show.

Kane brings up Big Show will be in Rollins corner later tonight.  Big Show is upset Kane made the decision for him, and the two start to bicker.

Rollins comes out and chews them out, agreeing with Stephanie these two look stupid, representing The Authority.

Kane makes it clear, he cannot talk to these two in this manner.  They actually enjoyed Rollins getting his ass kicked last week, and part of it is his own fault, for acting like a spoiled little kid ever since Kane gave him that briefcase.

Kane is not going to join Rollins tonight, and offers that same courtesy to Big Show.

Big Show walks away.

Ryback Vs The Miz is next.

Shellshock, match is over.  Mizdow was with Miz.  Miz made it clear earlier today, that if Mizdow doesn’t help Miz win Andre The Giant Battle Royal, then he will be fired.

Ryback gave Mizdow a chance to hit Miz, but Miz made sure he didn’t.

After the match, Miz nails Mizdow with a Skull Crushing Finale.

Cena Vs Rusev video is showing.

Tonight, Cena Vs Rusev official contract signing.

The official contract signing between Cena and Rusev is now, with Cole introducing both men.

Cena has signed many of these contracts, but this one is the most important.  We are about to be introduced to a super-athlete.  He is the hero of “The Russian Federation”, he has destroyed many wrestlers, including himself.  He is also the United States Champion.

Now take a moment in that to reflect, because it represents all of us.  Now Cena can come out here and whip his ass again, but it doesn’t do any good, because he still represents us.

So he is here to announce enough is enough.  Rusev lives in these United States.  He still rags on us, and Cena is proud to call this his country, and call it home.

USA chants now.

We let that chant fill with pride, with honor, and with love.  Cena has stood with soldiers, and this contract represents freedom, and the honor of standing for what you believe.  We will stand up, and FIGHT.  Wrestlemania, is what Rusev will learn to find out is we can stand so far, until we kick their ass.

He signs the contract.

Now here comes Rusev.

Lana does not come out with Rusev.  It’s Rusev’s attorney, and Rusev will not be signing this contract,

Rusev will not compete at Wrestlemania.  He did not agree to any match.

We see footage from last 2 weeks, when Steph tells John the only way he can have the match is if Rusev agrees to the match.  But Rusev never did, Lana accepted it.  So the contract is noid and void.

The only way he will accept the match is if Rusev can read a prepaired statement, without Cena acting in his “barbaric” ways.

John Cena is just like America, weak.  Because Cena already had his match, and Rusev defeated him.  But people will grow up to be failures, just like their children.

Cena does not like that.  But he doesn’t fight back.

How stupid we all are, America is the “cancer” of the world, and we all will die.

Cena doesn’t fight back, Rusev signs the contract, flips the table and runs.

Rusev Vs Cena is official.

The Russian Flag pops up, in front of Cena.

Later tonight, 6-man tag match of Bryan, Ziggler, and Ambrose Vs Barrett, Harper, and Stardust.  Also tonight, Orton Vs Rollins.

Our next match is The New Day Vs Tyson and Cesaro.

Cesaro and Kidd win the match, with Cesaro rolling up Kofi after Kofi hits Tyson with Trouble in Paradise.

During the match, Los Matadores show up, and after the match, they attack The New Day.  They send Kofi back into the ring, with a Neutralizer by Cesaro.

But El Torito has the final say here, going after Cesaro.

Last Monday night on Raw, Undetaker sent Wyatt a crypic message….he accepts the Wrestlemania challenge.

Did Bray Wyatt really get what he wanted?  He will respond, tonight.  Next, we get thoughts from Brock Lesnar.

Rollins is talking with J & J Security.  Now Rollins and Noble are fighting among each other.

Joey walks off, now we need an Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns segment for old times sake.

Will Roman Reigns beat Brock Lesnar?

We hear from Brock, now.

Brock is ready to kick some ass at Wrestlemania.

Brock will kick Roman’s ass at Mania.  This is not a fairy tale, not a feel-good moment.  He is going to tear Roman Reigns up.

The end.

Lesnar Vs Reigns, in 13 days at Wrestlemania.

Big Show is in action, next.

Erick Rowan is now going to be Big Show’s bitch.

The match never takes place.  Big Show knocks out Rowan before the bell rings, and the match never takes place.

The newest WWE Hall of Fame inductee is “The Living Legend” Larry Zbyszko.

Tonight, a 6-man tag match is set.

Kane is going to give us a demonstration of what Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal will look like, with Kane winning.  Mark Henry is officially in the match.

Mark Henry is the last man standing, showing us what is what he does.

Tonight, Orton Vs Rollins.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman.  He is the advocate of the reigning, defending, WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar.

The most authentic, legitimate World Champion of WWE, and MMA.

Then, now, and forever.

His client, Brock Lesnar is not a pacifist.  His client, Brock Lesnar is a beast.  Brock Lesnar is not coming to Wrestlemania to make love, he is coming to Mania to make war.

What are they going to do when Brock evaluates Roman Reigns?  Are they going to cut off the cable?  Are they going to cut off the feed?  Nobody knows, because we are all stuck with Brock Lesnar as our champion.

Mic feed goes off, again.

Nobody can stop Brock, not even Roman Reigns.  Because he was the next breakout superstar, he was the rising star in NXT.  He beat 29 other men in Royal Rumble, but he can’t beat Brock Lesnar.  He can’t beat him for the World Title, at Wrestlemania.

He can’t….he can’t….he can’t.

Enter Roman Reigns.

Reigns doesn’t have an issue with Heyman.  Paul is one of the great talkers in this business.  But he has an issue with his client, so allow him to talk to Brock.

If he was here, he’d say this one on one.

He is preparing for a fight.  He has many family members, so he can be carried out, but he is going to hold the WWE World Title on his shoulder.  He has a huge chip on his shoulder, and it starts with these people who don’t like him.

But he is going to do it, not because he can, but because he needs to, and he believes that.

Earlier tonight, Orton Vs Rollins was set for tonight.  But Rollins is going out by himself.

Renee Young wants to hear comments from Heyman about Reigns comments.

He loves the chess Reigns is playing right now.  But he won’t have to wait for Wrestlemania for Lesnar, because next week, Reigns can say whatever he wants to Brock.  But at the same token, Lesnar can speak to Reigns and do whatever he pleases, and there is nothing he can say or do about.

6-man tag match with Bryan, Ziggler, and Ambrose Vs Barrett, Stardust, and Harper.

Ambrose pins Barrett with Dirty Deeds.  Now all 6 men are fighting, and with R-Truth doing commentary, the IC Title is flying all over the place.

Ziggler and Bryan now are fighting for the title, which was fun to see.

Barrett leaves with the title, after laying everyone out with a Bull Hammer.

HHH and Stephanie are making their only appearance of the evening and now Rollins can’t get along with them.

Rollins is on his own.

We hear from Bray Wyatt, next.

LL Cool J will appear at Wrestlemania.

Earlier tonight, we had the official contract signing of Rusev Vs Cena.

We see Rusev signing, and run away from Cena.

Also at Wrestlemania, Bray Wyatt will face The Undertaker.

We see footage from last Monday, when Taker accepted the challenge, in his own way.

We hear from Wyatt now.

A memory is such a treasure.  Bray remembers when he saw her sitting in that chair for the first time.  He remembers how beautiful she looked, but also what she said.  She spoke about the evil world using their powers against us.  Undertaker tried to take that memory from her.

But he takes that chair to dust, but people ask what remains The Undertaker.  Is it defeat?  Is it fear?  Because the last time we saw him, he saw defeat.  It was a tragedy what happened to Taker.  It was as if destiny was taken from him, but we see what remains of him.  Wrestlemania will be the final resting place, and Bray will take his righteous place.  And she will look on with pride, and then the rest of the world isn’t safe.

Behold the new face of fear.

Orton Vs Rollins is next.

Next week, we will have a face-to-face with Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns.  We will also be in Hollywood, with special guest hosts being Snoop Dawg and Bill Simmons.

Orton Vs Reigns is up now.

Rollins come out, and tell us everything he has been doing in the last 3 hours was a joke.

Enter The Authority.

Enter Sting.

I can’t believe I am typing this, but Stinger Splash on J & J Security…..Scorpion Deathdrop.

Holy shit, this is cool.

Orton with a RKO.

Coming up on WWE Network, an exclusive interview with Orton and Sting.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Boy, last week’s show sucked, the build had been up to this point, mostly piss poor.

But not tonight.

13 days away from the biggest event of the year, and let’s face it, they showcased every match tonight.  It’s really the way every PPV should be built, like every segment needs to feel important.

Tonight did that.

Especially the awesome ending, with Sting showing up.  My god, was that great.  And Sting kicked ass, this felt lije 1997 Sting going after NWO after every important Nitro.

Now next week, we will see Reigns and Lesnar have their final face-off.  I’d like to hope Sting will be there too, but maybe not?  We know HHH will do a great job building the show up, regardless.

Even Cena and Rusev did their job, as did Bray Wyatt setting up his match with Taker.  We know too that the IC Title Ladder Match will steal the show, and they had a good showcase tonight, despite the announcers try to screw that up.  Even the Divas were able to showcase their talents.

It had to be a big show, and WWE delivered this.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Are you looking forward to Wrestlemania?  Sound off, let me know.

Impact Wrestling 3/13/15…There Will Be Blood

Tonight, three former friendships are thrown to the wolves. We will also see Hair Vs Hair, EC3 Vs Rockstar Spud.  Also, Magnus Vs Bram, one on one.  And Bobby Roode Vs Eric Young, in a Last Man Standing Match.

There will be blood.

Impact Wrestling is now.

We kick the show off with EY Vs Roode, Last Man Standing Match.

What a fun match here that had Roode win the match, and answer the 10 count, when he put EY through a table.  Both men had an incredible match here, and this has been a good feud.

Is this the end of the feud?

Magnus and Mickie James have entered the building.  Tonight, Magnus Vs Bram.

Also tonight, EC3 Vs Rockstar Spud in a Hair Vs Hair match.

JB is telling Spud he doesn’t have to do this, but Spud assures him he does.  Ethan has money, and is a bully.  So Spud had to stand up to him, and that is why Carter is afraid of him.  In Ethan’s world, the bad guy always wins.  But in Spud’s world, the good guy wins and he must shave his head, tonight.

Next week, Angle Vs Lashley for the TNA World Heavyweight Title.

Previously on Impact, Drew Galloway made his debut, to stand up to BDC, and to stand up for wrestling.

Here comes Drew, with a mic.

Drew feels the passion for the real fans of professional wrestling.  Drew used to come to these shows as a kid.  He is a fan first and foremost and wants to feel passion from the crowd.

Drew goes into the fans now.

Drew connects with the fans.  He tells them it’s story time with Drew.  Once upon a time in professional wrestling, it used to matter what the fans thought.  Then something happened, people shoved things down our throats on something we didn’t want.  So who wants to take back professional wrestling?

Which brings Drew to MVP.  He tries and shove BDC down our throats, he screwed Roode, tried to screw Lashley.

Here comes Beat Down Clan.

MVP calls out Drew.  As far as Drew is concerned, MVP is God.  Because he literally holds his life in his hands.  Because once upon a time, he was “chosen”.  Drew has the looks, he has the skills, but one reason he was never a champion is because he is too stupid to realize what he did.  But Drew is “chosen” to be beat down.  Once upon a time, they were drinking buddies.  MVP used to like him, and for that reason he will do Drew a favor.  He will ask his brothers to step in the back, so he can beat Drew by himself.

Drew Vs MVP is next.

Galloway had things won, but BDC takes Drew out.

Joe hands Ki a lead pipe, and Ki takes him out with the show.  MVP welcomes Galloway to TNA.

Magnus assures Mickie that he is ready for tonight, but asks Mickie to stay in the back.  He is handling this himself.

Bram Vs Magnus, next.

We see the history video between EC3 and Rockstar Spud.

EC3 is getting his thoughts.  For 16 months, Ethan has been undefeated, beating names like Sting, Bully, and Angle.  Names that represent greatness.  Spud represents the 99 percenters.  He is in his native country, and this is supposed to be his night.  But Spud, remember….you asked for this.

Bram Vs Magnus is now.

BGram is DQ’d when he kicked Magnus in the balls, and nails him with a chair.  Bram now has a cue ball, but Mickie James comes out and saves her fiancee.  Bram grabs her by the hair, and Mickie slaps Bram.  But the evil “friend” grabs her right back, and taunts Magnus with her.  Ordering for Magnus to kiss Bram’s boot.

Relunctantly, Magnus kisses Bram’s boot.

Switching gears, Brooke faces Robbie E one on one, next.

Earlier tonight, BDC took out Drew Galloway, including Lo-Ki nailing Drew with a lead pipe.

We cut right back to BDC. They tell us more will happen, and this isn’t the end of it with Drew.

Our next match in an intergender match. Robbie E., complete with a boxing intro will fac ehis former girlfriend, Brooke.

Brooke rolls up Robbie, after help from Jessie backfired.

EC3 Vs Spud, Hair Vs Hair match is up next.

Next week, Kurt Angle will face Lashley, for the TNA World Title. Josh Matthews is in the Nasville studios, previewing the match.

Spud Vs EC3, in a Hair Vs Hair match is up now.

WWE NXT 3/11/15…Alex Riley Returns To The Ring

We are live, on tape at Full Sail University, in Orlando, Florida.  Big Cass and Enzo Amore come out to the ring.

They are facing The Lucha Dragons, and they are SAWFT!!

Cass and Enzo tell them they are on their way to the Tag Team Titles.

Enzo and Cass wins with a Rocket Launcher.

They are now Number One Contender matches.

Tonight, Alex Riley Vs CJ Parker.

Next week, NXT goes to The Buckeye State in Columbus, Ohio.  We will see Alex Riley face Kevin Owens, and Columbus’ own Alexa Bliss will face Sasha Banks.

Alex Riley video is playing.

We now see Kevin Owens video, and his history of NXT.

Divas action now with Carmella Vs Alexa Bliss, next.

Alexa wins with what she calls a Sparkle Splash, off the top rope.

Tonight, Alex Riley will face CJ Parker.

Earlier today, we hear from A-Ry. He has felt trapped for two years, comparing it to being trapped in a cage. Kevin Owens talks about doing this to feed his family, Alex has no family. This business is HIS family and tonight, he fights for his family.

Also later tonight, we will see Hideo Itami face Tyler Breeze.

Tyler talks about proving to Itami just how pretty he is, and how ugly Itami will be.

Alex Riley Vs CJ Parker.

A-Ry picks up the win with a Blockbuster off the top rope. One of the best dropkicks in the business, and he proved it again.

Kevin Owens comes out and calls Riley the dumbest man in NXT. Because he quit his announce job just to face Owens. Next week, he will get that opportunity, and Owens will end his in-ring career. Then, he will take out Finn Balor.

Riley Vs Owens is next week.

Our main event, Tyler Breeze Vs Hideo Itami is now.

Tyler Breeze defeated Itami with a Beaty Shot, after Itami hit his head on the bottom turnbuckle, leaving him a bit loopy.

A big win by Tyler, and the show ends with Tyler slowly walking out of the ring, seems a bit loopy too.

Next week, NXT is in Columbus, Ohio, part of the Arnold Classic and the show ends here.

WWE Monday Night Raw 3/9/15…Cause You Know, 2-On-1 Handicap Matches Work So Well

After taking a full week off from reporting wrestling, I am back in time to see the bullshit that was Roman Reings, the man who is the Number One Contender to the WWE World Title, heading to Wrestlemania lose, thanks in part to Randy Orton.

The Authority, minus HHH and Stephanie McMahon are in the ring to officially welcome back Randy Orton.

J & J Security are the two people who are not keen on Orton being a member of The Authority.  But Seth Rollins assures everyone that Orton can be trusted.  However, there are people who say that is not the case, but we are idiots, right?

Orton and Rollins are in this ring, standing side by side, together.

Rollins had some doubt in Orton, as did J & J Security, Kane did, and as well as The Big Show, but who cares what The Big Show thinks.

But Rollins is joking, and he shakes Orton’s hand to signify they are all on the same page.  But now give it up to the man who is his partner tonight, “The Viper” Randy Orton.

Orton is touched by this, but he has a question here.  What the hell has happened to The Authority?

Kane used to be “The Devil’s Favorite Demon”, so why did he become the “Corporate Kissass”?

What about The Big Show?  He should be able to dominate, instead he is just moaning and complaining.

Why is Jamie Noble so upset?  Is it because everyone knows who he is?  Or is it because Randy can ride all the rides at Disneyland, and Jamie cannot.

He completely ignores Mercury, and this brings him to Rollins.

Orton wants Seth to feel safe and secure so that when he strikes, he can make Rollins his own personal bitch, and he won’t know when it happens.

He’s just messing with them.

Rollins is laughing about this, they are here to have some fun.  And that includes tonight taking out Roman Reigns, and destroy him on his road to Wrestlemania.

And they will do that because that is what is best for business.

Do you trust Orton?

Michael Cole, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show.  Wiz Khalifa will be the special guest host of tonight’s Raw.  Brock Lesnar is in Pittsburgh tonight.  What is his on his mind?  We find out tonight.

Daniel Bryan is in action, next.

Daniel Bryan Vs Bad News Barrett is now.

Barrett continues his losing streak, though technically he still is the IC Champion.

Is Daniel Bryan added to the mix at Wrestlemania?

Barrett hits a Bull Hammer from behind.

Here comes Dean Ambrose, he attacks Barrett.

Ambrose is in action, next.

Stardust has possession of the IC Title, he is facing Ambrose, now.

Dirty Deeds, the match is over.

Ambrose now has the IC Title, but here comes Barrett.

Daniel Bryan heads in.

Luke Harper.

Dolph Ziggler.

R-Truth has a knapsack, and puts the IC Title in his bag.

Barrett think he has his title back, but Truth did not give it to him.

The newest inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame is….

the first ever recipitant of The Warrior award….Connor “The Crusher” Mihalick.

Very touching, and truly deserving.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman. All day long they have been wanting Heyman to rpeview this video, but instead he has decided to watch this video with us.

The video is Roman Reigns.

Okay, so Roman Reigns made some interesting points, which ladies and gentlemen he retorts, HERE COMES THE PAIN!! The Reigning, defending, and undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar.

Heyman understands what a fan pleasing video that was, but to his client that was a sheer tale of propaganda.

Reigns was a “standout” as the video would say.

Heyman knows about his family since he was 14 years old. Heyman wants to tell us the truth. When Roman was 9 years old, his father, who was one generation from cannibalism took he and his sons out to a bar. Told them don’t come home until you leave one man standing. His cousin told him to use a punch, a spear, two things he does now, but the truth is Roman Reigns will not beat Brock Lesnar.

If The Authority chooses to put the title on Reigns, only to have Seth Rollins cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase, because he isn’t man enough to do that to Lesnar, that won’t happen. Brock assures to us that if something happens, such as “The Montreal Screwjob”, Brock will make sure that every man responsible for “The Montreal Screwjob”, Brock will destroy them.

The mic goes off, and Heyman brings up “Oz” who is in the production truck, and isn’t man enough to come to the ring and take the title away from Brock.

If Brock wants to “unify” the WWE World Title, and the UFC Heavyweight Title, Brock can do that.

The mic goes out again.

Hey, how about this, Brock can show up to the Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquio and take both men on.

How about this, in 2002, a rookie Brock Lesnar faced Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, beat him, and Rock left for Hollywood.

Then again, this is the same man who took The Undertaker’s streak, made him less of a man to the point where Bray Wyatt is trying to resurrect his career, at Wrestlemania.

In other words, this is no longer the WWE World Championship, this is Brock Lesnar’s title, and there isn’t a damn thing any of us can do about.

Bray Wyatt assures us that tonight, we will get an answer, finally.

Kane and Big Show Vs Ryback and Rowan, now.

Rowan and Ryback win when Big Show “accidentally” knocks out Kane.

The two of them fight, and here comes Stephanie McMahon, to chew them out.

Why can’t these two act like professionals? Shut up, Big Show.

We are 3 weeks away from Wrestlemania, and they act like children? They represent The Authority, they represent herself, they represent HHH, they represent WWE.

Perhaps Randy Orton was right. She wants “The Devil’s Favorite Demon” back, and not someone who just gets coffee. She orders them to get out of the ring. She screams to get out of her ring.

She tells them to pack up their bags, and leave for the night. They need to be one UNIT.

Switching gears, footage from last week when The Miz was involved in an irrectal commercial.

The Miz is trying to work a record deal with Wiz Khalifa. Wiz isn’t interested in working with The Miz after last week, but he did sign with Mizdow. Mizdow gives us a rap, saying he is in the Andre The Giant Battle Royal, at Wrestlemania.

Now why don’t these two get a one on one match?

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

Wiz Khalifa is out now, to perform.

He is performing “We Dem Boyz”.

Last week, we see the return of AJ Lee. She is in action, next.

The Bella Twins are being interviewed. They are scheduled to face AJ and Paige, telling us in so many ways they don’t stand a chance.

AJ Lee Vs Summer Rae is now.

AJ makes Summer Rae tap out to the Black Widow.

We will hear from “The Vigalante” Sting, next.

We see a video of Sting, with a digitalized voice. He more or less said Sting has been watching HHH. This is a shame, because Sting is so passionate in his promos. But he is telling HHH this is about retribution, he had watched WCW parish and fold due to absolute power. He has been waiting for 14 years of this.

At Wrestlemania, it will be Sting Vs HHH.

The United States Champion Rusev is set for one on one action, but is met with Cena.

Cena calls Rusev stupid for refusing to face Cena. He wants to be proud of his country? Be proud, but he doesn’t have the right to spell out his propaganda against the United States. Because if he does, Cena has the right to beat him down. Daring Rusev to bring up United States tonight, because he doesn’t need a Wrestlemania match, he will beat him down, and show him the kind of fight Cena has.

Rusev is facing Curtis Axel. Axelmania is running wild, brother.

Match is done, Accolade.

Rusev has the mic now.

You see this America? This represents every single one os us, because Axel is delusional. He thinks he is someone he is not. Back in the Hulkamania days, America was strong, but now, America is weak. America, if we had a heart, it would be weak. If America would have a soul, God would come down, and spit on it.

Those are fighting words, and here comes Cena.

Cena puts Rusev in a STF, Rusev passes out, then Cena throws water on his face and puts a STF on Rusev again, and Rusev is tapping out like a bitch.

Lana gives Cena his Wrestlemania match, for the United States Title.

Okay, way to make the undefeated United States champion look weak.

Bray Wyatt confirms tonight he raises the dead. He wants answers.

Find Me.

Moments ago, we see Cena destroy Rusev and get what he wants a title match at Wrestlemania.

Rusev is being checked on by medics. He is irate that Lana accepted the match.

The New Day Vs Tyson and Cesaro.

New Day winwhen Natalya is almost bumped into Tyson, and Xavier rolls up Tyson.

We immedately shift to Naomi Vs Nattie, now.

Naomi wins the match with Rear View, pins Nattie. Not a very good night for the First Diva and Tag Champs.

But now, we have yet another match. Los Matadores Vs The Uso’s.

Los Matadores win the match with some assitance from El Torito, who is more over than Los Matadores.

20 days away from Wrestlemania.

Earlier tonight, The Authority reunited with Randy Orton.

J & J Security still don’t trust Orton, and Rollins reminds them he has everything in control and has he stirred them wrong?

Here is the blueprint, we stop worrying about Orton. He is family.

Bray Wyatt is next, he will raise the dead.

Bray Wyatt is in the ring and he tells us he sees corrupted government, corrupted cities, filled with crime. And laying beneath us is The Undertaker. This has always been about him. Pride is such a horrible sin, and Bray will not be condemned here. This was always pre-ordained. Taker always knew The Streak would end, and he’d be carried accross the shield. But Wyatt can help Taker, for fate can always conquer anything, but this time Bray will shoot the trigger and Undertaker will be buried forver.

So what is going to be Undertaker? Come out, come out wherever you are? Or are you here, which is the urn.

Bray tells us it’s empty, just like….

Smoke comes out, thunder strikes, and the bell tolls.

The lights come back on, spotlighted by a rocking chair. We hear a voice from The Undertaker telling him he will rest ion peace, as the rocking chair blazes in fire.

Our main event, Roman Reigns Vs Seth Rollins and Randy Orton is next.

Earlier tonight, Cena forced Lana to accept his challenge with Rusev at Wrestlemania.

Reigns Vs Orton and Rollins is now.

WWE Monday Night Raw 2/23/15…The Greatest Raw Of The Year

This might be a bold statement by me, since Raw hasn’t had many great shows lately, but after last night’s FastLane, and The Road To Wrestlemania in full effect, there is no reason why Raw can’t be the greatest show, right?

Right?

Okay, Raw is on now.

We are 34 days away from Wrestlemania.  Live in Nashville, Tennessee.

The return of “The Viper”, Randy Orton heads to the ring.

Orton isn’t here to talk a 20 minute promo, but there is something he has to get off his chest,  Orton has been out of action for the last 4 months, specifically because of Seth Rollins.

We see Rollins use a Curb Stomp on Orton through an announce table, and another curb stomp on a steel step.

The last four months, Orton has been playing this image over and over.  So he is here to tell The Authority, he is here to tell the world, Orton is just getting started.

Seth Rollins ran away, he doesn’t call escape, he calls a stay of execution.  He wants Rollins to come out.

Behold The King….The King of Kings….On your knees, punk.

The Authority, minus Rollins come out to the ring.

Stephanie has the mic, and welcomes Orton back.  He had a hell of a return last night, and he’s making the mark tonight.  This is the Randy Orton they have wanted, the Randy Orton that had 16,000 fans screaming Randy.

Orton isn’t buying it.

Orton can’t forgive Rollins, Stephanie tells him “The Face” of WWE can co-exist with “The Future” of WWE.  Band together, and join The Authority.

Orton says that is tempting, but he’d rather kick some ass than kiss some ass.

Big Show understands his anger and frustration.  Big Show has had that too, but joining The Authority was the best personal choice Show made.  He knows Orton, and coming back to The Authority, it’s the best decision he can make.

And by joining The Authority, it means selling your soul.

Stephanie tells Orton that he isn’t a nice man.  He has done some deplorable things involving her family.  Including her father, her brother, her husband, and even herself.  But they can be business partners.  They can discuss things in a timely manner.  Will he at least listen?

HHH says nothing, but looks straight at Orton, and leaves.

Orton will have a conference, later tonight.

Tonight, we find out what is next for John Cena.

We will also hear from the new Number One Contender, Roman Reigns.

Bad News Barrett, the official IC Champion, but doesn’t have his belt will face Dolph Ziggler, next.

Barrett loses again to Ziggler.  R-Truth was on commentary, getting a sense of all of this.

Dean Ambrose shows up now.

He has the IC Title in his possession.

Ziggler is looking at the title, and Dean “bumps” into him, walking out of the ring.

Next, we see footage between Sting and HHH from last night, on FastLane.

Sting shows up last night, and had the final word.

It will happen, at Wrestlemania.  HHH Vs Sting.

Tonight, we take a look at The Man Called Sting.

Rollins is now here for the Summit.

Stephanie starts to talk things out, but Seth doesn’t want to agree with this.  Stephanie feels disrespected, and starts chewing out at Rollins.  The Authority needs “The Viper” Randy Orton.  This is about absolute power.

But how are they supposed to trust him, again?

Steph says there are no buts, how can he trust Seth, after his plan?

She wants to hear from Randy, giving him an oath he can trust them again, and they can open their arms up and welcome them back.

Orton shakes Rollins’ hand.

Stephanie wants to show them what they can do.  Tonight, Orton and Rollins team up to face Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns.

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

Prime Time Players are back together.  They are set to face The Ascension.

Prime Time Players defeat The Ascension when Darren pins Viktor with a roll up.

Fall of the Man after the match.

34 days away from Wrestlemania, Roman Reigns Vs Brock Lesnar, for the WWE World Title.

Reigns speaks, next.

Hour one concludes here with the new Number One Contender, Roman Reigns.

It’s been a hell of a month for Reigns.  It started in January, going through 29 men, winning the Royal Rumble.  But I guess that wasn’t good enough.  He then went in, faced Daniel Bryan last night, and did what he said he would do.  Now, he can say he is going to Wrestlemania.

He heard them all month, the fans were rooting for the other guy.  But to all of his doubters….

Here comes Daniel Bryan.

Daniel interrupted here, because he mentioned the doubters.  Daniel saw Reigns win the Royal Rumble match.  And he knew Reigns deserved that opportunity to main event at Wrestlemania.  But Daniel felt like these people.  Daniel booed, because he is the biggest Roman Reigns doubter.

When they talk about promise, when they talk about ability, he knows they really talk about size.  But these guys don’t have the heart, the in-ring ability like Daniel Bryan.  That’s why they don’t like Reigns, and it’s why Daniel doesn’t like Reigns.

But last night, Daniel gave it every single ounce that he had.  He dug as deep as he could, but he still didn’t do it.  And Daniel can honestly say he doesn’t regret one thing.  He gave it every single ounce he had, and it wasn’t Daniel.  Reigns has more heart than Daniel ever thought he had.

They both fought, gave every sense of energy they could, and Roman Reigns beat Daniel Bryan.  They left everything on the table, and he has one thing to say, congratulations.

And if there is one person Daniel would fight with as his partner, its Roman Reigns.  Now go beat the crap out of Brock Lesnar.

Ladies and gentlemen, as Daniel Bryan walks off.  His name is Paul Heyman, and if we think he is here to cause trouble this evening, he’s actually here to say Roman Reigns, congratulations, sir.

They shake hands.

Heyman tells Reigns, that was a hell of a match he had last night, and he earned that spot as Number One Contender to the WWE World Title.  And Heyman is not surprised.  Because his money was always on Roman Reigns.  Only an idiot would say Roman is not The One.  1968, Roman Reigns Vs Bruno Sammartino, his money would always be on Roman Reigns.  1987 against Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant, his money would always be on Roman Reigns.  1998, against “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, 1999, against The Rock.  2000, against HHH.  His money would always be on Roman Reigns.  His money on Roman Reigns against 29 different opponents at Royal Rumble.

Heyman’s money would be on Reigns.  And, at Wrestlemania, his money would always be on Reigns, being The One….except this one.  Against The BEAST.  Roman Reigns, you can’t slay a dragon, you can’t tame THE BEAST.  You can’t be the one to beat The 1 in 21-1, because Heyman’s money would always be on his client, BRRRRRRRRRROCCCCCCCCCCK LESNAR!!!

Reigns wants Heyman to say it again, because people have been doubting Reigns for a while, and all he has done is proven them wrong.  In fact, Heyman was there the night after Royal Rumble.  Reigns told Lesnar he will make him respect him.  But that was all for show, because Reigns could care less.  What he wants is to show Brock how he is going to beat him, and do it by wearing him down, and take him out.

BELIEVE THAT!!

Tonight, Bryan and Reigns Vs Orton and Rollins.  Next, Tag Team rematch, The Uso’s Vs Kidd and Cesaro.

Kidd and Cesaro are DQ’d when the ladies get involved and Nattie clipped Jimmy Uso off the top rope.  The Uso’s win the match, but not the titles.

What is next for John Cena?  We find out tonight, and next, The New Face of Fear, Bray Wyatt.

The Miz is with Damien Mizdow and Damien has some big news, but Miz doesn’t want to hear Mizdow speak.  Mizdow wants to thank Miz for using him as a stunt double.  Now casting agents want to use Mizdow in a commercial.

In all of this, there was also a mention of Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal returning.  I hope not, because it did nothing for Cesaro after winning last year’s inaugural match.

Moments from FastLane last night, when Bray Wyatt issued a challenge to The Undertaker.

Bray shows up, in a casket.  Close your eyes, do you see what I see?  or perhaps you see a number, like 1, as in 21-1.  Imagine The Undertaker in broken dreams on the grandest stage of them all.  And I am sure you can feel its claws dragging you down, where you belong.

And that feeling now is in Bray Wyatt,  He knows he is feeling Bray Wyatt, and it feels so much better being down here.

Wyatt closes the casket, and screams out find me.

Stardust is in action, next.

Stardust Vs Jack Swagger.

Swagger wins the match by making Stardust tap to the Patriot Lock, after Goldust comes out to distract him for a second.

Crowd is still chanting for Cody.

Last night, Rusev defeated John Cena, made him pass out to The Accolade.  Where does John Cena go from here?

We will find out, when we hear from John, next.

34 days away from Wrestlemania.

Here comes John Cena, wearing proudly his “Never Give Up” shirt, where you can buy at WWEShopzone.com.

Cena makes it clear, The Road To Wrestlemania is here.  The United States Title match, Bray Wyatt defeated Cena, but make no mistake about it, Cena looked straight at Rusev, and took him to the limit, did not give up.  He would be the first to break out of The Accolade.

But Rusev let him go, to spin him around and kick him in the nuts, so he can achieve his victory.  He has no problem with that, but he does have a problem with Rusev, the man.

He had a chance to show the world what kind of hero he is, by beating Cena, but instead, he showed us what a coward he is.

Enter Rusev and Lana.

Lana told Cena that he did what any American does, he let his country down and gave up to a superior athlete, Rusev.

While John has been trying to find words to say about his loss, Rusev has been receiving praise and messages from his fabulous leader, Vladimir Putin.

Cena calls Rusev a coward?  He broke him, and it’s Rusev time.  He is United States Champion, and nobody can beat him.

Rusev wants Cena to admit Rusev defeated Cena, and Rusev is superior to America.

Cena warns him that if he comes to the ring to tell him that, he would….

Would what, Lana asks.  Because this video says it all.

Cena is laid out from last night.

Cena says that if this says anything, America gets right back up, and fights another day.  Cena questions if Putin truly called him, and if he did, he should be disgusted with the kind of athlete Rusev truly is.  70 years ago, Marines landed on Hiroshima, and planted their flag on that.  Cena will get that rematch at Wrestlemania, and find a way.

Rusev denies, saying what makes Cena think he can get that match?  The “great” John Cena?  He was once great, but not anymore.  This John Cena quit.  There will not be a rematch.

The Russian flag shows up at ringside, irritating Cena.

Earlier tonight, Orton agreed to be Seth Rollins partner.  They will face Bryan and Reigns.

Rollins wants to talk with Orton, and Randy tells Rollins to leave his “kids in suits” at the door.  Orton is all about the “big business”.  Orton wants to show Bryan and Roman they were lucky Orton wasn’t in the 30 man Royal Rumble.

Rollins would agree to that, let’s just show the world what “The Face” and “The Future” can do together as a team.

Tonight, we will see a video on A Man Called Sting.

But first, Paige is in action, next.

The Man Called Sting video is playing now.

At Wrestlemania, Sting Vs HHH.

Paige and Emma are now facing off with The Bella Twins.

Emma turned her back on The Bellas, and they made her pay.  Match over.

Paige tries to fight back, but Nikki nails Paige with the Divas Title.

We will find out who is the next inductee of the WWE Hall of Fame, next.

The latest inductees of the WWE Hall of Fame are….

The Bushwackers.

Very disappointing, but okay.

The Axel-Mania movement is still alive.  Curtis Axel is putting himself in the second annual Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.  You can’t stop the movement….

Feed Me More!!

Wake Up!!  ITS FEEDING TIME!!!

Ryback tells Axel that they were at one point, one of the greatest tag teams in the world.  But Ryback has put his name to Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal match, but that’s 34 days away.  So why not these two square off, tonight?

Shellshock, match is over.

Our main event is next, Orton and Rollins Vs Reigns and Bryan.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, FastLane rematch with Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback Vs Rollins, Big Show, and Kane.

Rollins and Orton Vs Reigns and Bryan.

Reigns and Bryan win when Orton and Rollins had some communication problems.  Rollins blindly tags Orton when Randy had Reigns set up for a Draping DDT.  But when Roman had Rollins set up for a spear, Daniel blindly tags Reigns and hits a high kick for the win.

After the match, Orton had Rollins ready for a punt, but J & J Security help, and Orton hits a RKO on Jamie Noble.  He lets Rollins back up, pats him on the back, and walks away.

Slowly turning the hands of time.

Show ends here, with a birthday celebration, on WWE Network.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I am going to be patient through this build.  I was truly expecting to see Orton RKO Rollins at end of show, but right now, they are going slowly with it.

So, we have 2 big matches set.  We will see where everything else is thrown in, but now is the time to make Smackdown feel like must-see TV, something they haven’t done in months.

Tonight worked.  We saw an amazing Sting video, that set the stage for Mania.  HHH was very good tonight too, just in his facial expressions.  Very discontent with everything around him, and just thinking about looking bad last night.

Off to a good start, I do question bringing back Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal though, because it did absolutely nothing for Cesaro winning last year.  So why bring it back?  And The Bushwackers as HOF’ers?

Other than that, an entertaining 3 hours.  Send me your thoughts here.

WWE FastLane 2/22/1

Tonight, the REAL Road to Wrestlemania will begin, because we will see who truly faces “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Title.  Daniel Bryan will face Roman Reigns, with the winner facing Brock at the big event.

The pre-show begins in 30 minutes, so join me tonight as I will keep you updated, and we find out together.

Renee Young welcomes us to the Pre-Show.  She is joined by Booker T, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton.

Tonight, Roman Reigns Vs Daniel Bryan.  Winner faces Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania.

Also tonight, John Cena Vs Rusev, for the United States Championship.

Can John Cena get the job done tonight?

Corey is going with Cena.  Byron is going with Rusev.  He has beaten 6 former World Champions.  Booker T says it won’t be easy for Cena.  Rusev is unstoppable.

Corey is going with Roman Reigns tonight.  Booker is going with D-Bry.  Byron is going with Reigns.

Tonight, on the FastLane Kick-Off show, Miz TV with Miz’s guest being Paul Heyman.

Tom Phillips is in the Social Media Lounge, and he will have an exclusive interview with the Tag Team Champions, The Uso’s.

Next, we get a HHH and Sting preview.

Later tonight, Sting and HHH will have a Face-To-Face, and we get the video of it.

What do we expect, tonight?  Nobody knows.

For whatever reason, there is now publicity over Seth Rollins’ comment this past Monday night, with saying he can take over the host of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.  Jon has his comments.

I will say this, Jon knows the product, which is very good.

Footage from this past Thursday night on Smackdown, with Rowan, Ziggler, and Ryback bonding together against The Authority.

Eden Stiles is backstage with Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan.

They have been fired, and re-hired.  Tonight, they face The Authority.  What would a win mean?

Ziggler said it would mean everything.  The Authority tries to tell us what’s best for business, but tonight they have a chance to shut them up.

Ryback said what’s best for business is all 3 men show off, show up, and take out The Authority.

Rowan brings up what is best is for The Authority to be expunged.

Can The Authority even lose, when they do lose?

Booker T brings up they still work for The Authority.  Do they want to get fired again?

Tonight, Miz TV with Paul Heyman being Miz’s guest.

We are in Memphis, Tennessee.  Renee Young interviewed Dean Ambrose, earlier tonight.

The Intercontinental Championship is very important for Dean.  It needs to be a stepping stone to the World Heavyweight Title, but it’s not.  This is about proving to the world he can do it.  He will fight Bad News Barrett in a parking lot of a Denny’s for the IC Title, now.

Dean believes the guy makes the championship and there hasn’t been a guy who could do that in a long time, but he is the guy.  Dean will show that, tonight.

World Tag Team Title preview is on now.

Also tonight, Divas Title is on the line.  Paige Vs Nikki Bella.

Earlier today, Byron interviewed The Bella Twins.

Nikki is confident in her chances, tonight.

Corey brings up Paige won’t be intimidated by them, she is already a 2-time Divas Champion, and she hasn’t been on the roster for a full year yet.

Next, Cena Vs Rusev preview.

Tom Phillips is now with The Uso’s.

They are truly excited to see their father, Rikishi being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Another highlight moment of them was The Uso’s dancing with their father.

What was the biggest challenge of the two growing up.  Sharing everything, and butting heads.

The Uso’s Vs Cesaro and Kidd, tonight.

Earlier today, Eva Marie and Cameron were a part of the Oscars pre-show.

Miz TV with Paul Heyman, is next.

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

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

Miz TV, with Miz and Damien Mizdow is next.

Miz orders Mizdow to sit in the corner.  Miz tells us he had a chance to be at the Oscars tonight, but chose to be here instead.  Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is filling in.

Miz brings out Paul Heyman.

Miz asks Heyman is Brock Lesnar will be here tonight, at WWE FastLane.

Ladies and gentlemen, for the record his name is Paul Heyman.  And his undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion, his client “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar is not here tonight.

The Miz reminds Heyman he has won in the main event at Wrestlemania as WWE Champion, so he wants to know who Brock would prefer to face at Mania.  Daniel Bryan, a man who is as big as Brock’s one leg, but he did defeat HHH at last year’s Wrestlemania.  Then defeat Randy Orton and Batista, or Roman Reigns.

Heyman said Brock is not concerned, but Heyman doesn’t like how Mizdow is looking at him.

Miz orders Mizdow to turn around and face the turnbuckle.

Mizdow does that.

Now, Heyman is discussing Reigns.  He knows about Roman’s heritage, even more about it when Roman being alive.  But his fate will be the same as Daniel’s, if he wins tonight.  Lesnar will still win at Wrestlemania.

The two shake hands, and the segment ends.

Brian Vs Reigns video is showing.

FastLane is next.

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

6-man tag match kicks things off.  Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan Vs Rollins, Big Show, and Kane kicks off the show.

The Authority win the match when Big Show knocked out Ziggler, when the referee was trying to get Rollins out of the ring, and Kane pinned him.

Not the kind of ending I wanted to see, but then again, WWE will never push Ziggler like they should.

Rollins hits another Curb Stomp on Ziggler, and now they are taking care of Ryback.

Randy Orton comes back, and takes care of The Authority with a RKO on J & J Security, along with Kane.  Seth Rollins is leaving this entire building, as Orton is back in a vengeance.

Wrestlemania is 35 days away.

Stardust Vs Goldust is up now.

Dusty Rhodes is with Goldust in the locker room.  He never thought these two would face each other.  So do what you have to do, but don’t hurt him.  Because at the end of all this, he loves both men.  Goldust appreciates everything Dusty has done.  But tonight, he isn’t facing Cody, he is facing Stardust.  Tonight, he isn’t leaving that ring until he brings back Cody.

Dusty reminds him, no matter what happens, he loves both men.

Stardust Vs Goldust, now.

Goldust wins the match with a rollup.  Stardust is a bit confused, it seemed like the ref sort of messed up here, because the third count was not as effective as the others.  Stardust walked away from Goldust.

Once again, we see footage this week with John Stewart and Seth Rollins.

I have no clue why, but we get this again.  Does this mean it’s Rollins Vs Stewart at Wrestlemania?

We get backstage again, Dusty and Dustin are talking.  Cody attacks Dustin now.  Stardust tells his father he killed Cody, when he sent Goldust with him.  Stardust is not living in Dusty’s shadow anymore.  Dusty is living in Stardust’s shadow.

Stardust kicks Dustin again, and Dusty wants some help.

World Tag Team Title match is up now.  The Uso’s Vs Cesaro and Kidd.

Tyson and Cesaro win the match when Tyson pins Jey Uso, after Cesaro took out Jimmy Uso.

A good match here, Tyson and Cesaro are new Tag Team champions.

Now comes the fact-to-face moment between HHH and Sting.

Behold the King….The King of Kings.

On your knees, punk.

HHH makes his appearance.

Last week on Raw, HHH was confronted by Ric Flair, one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.  He pushed Ric Flair.  He will apologize to Flair, but not apologize for what he said.

He stands here, not as the boss of WWE, he stands here as The Game….as The King of Kings.  And he stands here to wait on Sting.

Here comes Sting.

Let’s get down to this, as HHH says.  He knows why Sting is here.  He’s not mad at him, and in fact he feels sorry for him.

Sting was a lonely soldier to WCW.  He was WCW.  And when the time came, he held his head up, and went when the ship went down.  He respects that.  And the truth is, HHH was partly responsible for that.  His legacy is a part of why Sting’s company went down.  Which is why Sting made sure he and his wife went down at Survivor Series.  Without them, WWE would go down.  And if that happens, Sting would fail, again.

So how about HHH gives Sting’s legacy back, by walking away.  He assures Sting’s legacy will live forever, through WWE Network, through DVd’s, through merchandise.

He would assure Sting’s legacy would be bigger now in 2015 than it ever was.  And HHH can assure Sting would get to the Hall of Fame someday.

Or, as HHH takes off his jacket, they can do it the other way.  Sting continues to look at HHH the way he is, and he beats him down until Sting is carried away.  And they take his legacy away.

And by the look on Sting’s face, he already made his mind up.  It’s funny, because Ric Flair said….

HHH and Sting fight each other, with HHH knocking Sting down.

It’s sledge-hammer time.

And Sting has his trusty bat.

Oh, I am loving this.

HHH drops the sledge-hammer.

Sting points to Wrestlemania.

Oh shit, this is awesome.

Sting walks away, HHH tries to attack him, but Sting has an answer with the bat.

Now Scorpion Death Drop.

Business has just picked up.

Road to Wrestlemania has finally begun.

Daniel Bryan is warming up for his match tonight.

What we just saw was awesome.  WWE Network is approaching one year anniversary.

Earlier tonight, Paul Heyman was a guest of Miz TV.

Divas Title is up now, Paige Vs Nikki Bella.

Nikki wins the match with holding some tights.  So we have the Bella Twins again call Paige a loser.

How is a 2-time Divas Champion a loser, is beyond me though.

Eva Marie and Cameron are at the Oscars tonight.  They might as well since neither woman wrestles much.

Breaking news at WWE FastLane, HHH Vs Sting is official for Wrestlemania 31.

Dean Ambrose Vs Bad News Barrett for the IC Title is up now.

Rudy Charles called for the bell when Ambrose wouldn’t stop at the 5 count.  So Barrett keeps his IC Title, and wins by DQ.

Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds, and takes Wade’s IC Title.

Roman Reigns is warming up for his match tonight.

The lights go out, and we see droids head to ringside.

Could it be?

The gongs sound off, smoke hits around ringside.

We see a casket, with 2 people rolling it out to ringside.

The casket opens up, and it’s Bray Wyatt.

There is a wicked feeling in the air tonight.  Can you feel it?  Bray will never forget the first time he saw him.

He made Bray tremble, he was so cold.  Behind him, there was nothing but darkness.  And he feared him.  But now, he has become like everyone else.  Weak and broken.  He has now become just like everyone else, a mere mortal.  And now, his soul is lost.  Stunk in limbo, between us and the super natural.  It’s time to go home, and Bray’s mission has become clear.

He knows he can hear him, and he knows he is listening.  Bray doesn’t fear him anymore.  Bray Wyatt is the new fear.  And at Wrestlemania, he will claim the new soul of The Undertaker.

The FastLane panel join us now.

Next, the United States Championship is on the line.  John Cena Vs Rusev.

Rusev wins the match when Cena would not submit to The Accolade.  Lana comes to the ring, to distract Charles Robinson and Rusev kicked Cena in the balls, then kicked him in the head, slapped The Accolade on again.  This time, Cena passed out.

The best ending to this match that could have happened.  It protects both men, and more importantly, Rusev picks up the win.

Officials are checking on Cena, as he slowly gets back up.

Cena shakes off the officials help and is walking under his own power.  In disbelief over what just happened.

35 days away from Wrestlemania.

WWE FastLane Kick-off panel joins us now too.  3 things we know for sure.  1.  Randy Orton returned to WWE.  2.  Sting will face HHH at Wrestlemania.  3.  Rusev defeated Cena tonight.

Our main event, Daniel Bryan Vs Roman Reigns.  The winner faces Brock Lesnar, at Wrestlemania is now.

Reigns wins the match with a wicked spear after Bryan tried a running kick.

A very surprising ending here, because I thought for sure they were going with a Triple Threat match for Wrestlemania.  I guess not.

A good match here, with an exciting ending.

Daniel makes this clear after the match.  Reigns BETTER….BETTER kick Brock Lesnar’s ass, and shook his hand.

I loved that ending there.

The main event for Wrestlemania is set.  Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns.  That’s a money match, can Reigns capitalize?

Will The Undertaker answer Bray Wyatt’s challenge?  And also confirmed, for Wrestlemania 31.  Sting Vs HHH, one on one.

The show ends here, Wrestlemania is 35 days away.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The true meaning of this PPV tonight was to set the stage for Wrestlemania.  And they did that.  Let’s face it, Sting and HHH made this show, with that segment alone.  Bray Wyatt did his part, challenging The Undertaker, making it crystal clear he wants Taker at Mania, even daring him to answer the challenge.  Rusev made Cena pass out, and defeated him.  And the main event is clear, it will be Lesnar Vs Reigns, at Wrestlemania.

Now, the challenge to WWE is to make the next 5 weeks compelling TV.  There is no excuse, NONE, but to make every segment, every show entertaining, and feel important.  This includes Smackdown too, which since they moved to Thursday nights have been underwhelming.

The Road to Wrestlemania has truly begun now.  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.

Impact Wrestling 2/20/15…20 Man Gautnlet Battle Royal

A video is playing, centering around the Gauntlet Battle Royal tonight.  The top 5 this week will determine the final 5 spots.  EC3 will enter at 16, as number 5 contender.  Samoa Joe is at 17, as number 4.  Lo-Ki will enter as number 18, with contender number 3.  MVP will come in at 19, so BDC will rule the last part of the Battle Royal.  And Kurt Angle will be number 20, he is the current Number One Contender.

Kurt Angle comes out, to say that he came back to be the TNA World Champion and he will win the Battle Royal tonight.  It’s real, it’s damn real.

Lashley is backstage, he needs to find Kurt and have a little talk with him.

6-Man tag action of Matt Hardy and The Wolves facing “Cowboy” James Storm, Abyss, and Manik.

The Wolves and Hardy win when Hardy hits a Twist of Fate, and The Wolves nail a foot Stomp, pinning Manik.

After the match, Storm ordered Abyss to hit a Black Hole Slam after The Revolution took out the 3 victorious ones on Manik.  Punishment for taking the fall.

20 Man Battle Royal tonight to determine the new Number One Contender.

Ladies and gentlemen, EC3.

Trouble…..trouble….trouble…..

Ethan is not in a good mood, because he had a chance to cut Spud’s hair, but someone got into his business when he didn’t need to.  And that someone will pay for it.

Mr. Anderson enters.

That someone has a name, that someone has a family.  That someone is from Green Bay, Wisconsin. That someone is MRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR….. Andersooooooooooooon!!

Anderson tells EC3 that he shaved JB’s head, tried to shave Spud’s hair.  So how about Anderson shaves EC3’s hair?

Anderson shows him he has a razor to go with it.  But EC3 has Tyrus to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Spud and Mandrews are behind EC3, and they deck him, while Anderson has a hold of Tyrus.  Tyrus tries to fight back, but Anderson comes in and nails a Mic Check, while they now shave Tyrus’ head, with EC3 watching outside of the ring.

Spud tells him that Tyrus was the fastest customer in the Rockstar Spud’s barber shop, and EC3 is next.

BDC talk, they will control the Battle Royal, and come out on top, because they can.

Mickie James is outside of the building, she is here to discuss Magnus’ condition, so stay tuned.

Last month, we saw Bram take out Magnus.

It’s now Al Snow Vs Grado.

Grado wins the match with what he calls a Wii kick.  He reminds me of Trevor Murdoch, even looks like him.

After the match, Al Snow raised his arm up in the air, but the BDC come out and laid them out.

But some guy in a hoodie come out with a crow bar, and nails Lo-Ki.  The guy reveals himself to be Drew Galloway, the wrestler formerly known as Drew McIntyre.

Coming up next, Angelina Love will attempt to be a 7-time Knockout Champion when she faces Taryn Terrell.

Angelina and her boys all take a selfie, with Awesome Kong lurking in the background.

Taryn wins with a Cutter, retaining her title.

But here comes Awesome Kong.  Taryn tries to fight, but Kong just overpowers her, and hits an Impact Buster.

But here comes Gail Kim to make sure Kong doesn’t take the Knockout Title.

Gail Kim Vs Kong would always make me happy.

Lo-Ki has to have stitches in his ear to heal up the wound he has.

Tonight, 20 Man Battle Royal Gauntlet to determine the Number One Contender for the World Title.

The wrestlers discuss the match.

Tommy Dreamer heads to the ring.

Last time Tommy was in this ring, he was dropped on his head, and his neck was hurt.  Eric Young, come out and fight now.

Eric Young Vs Tommy Dreamer is now.

EY wins the match with a piledriver, and beat a bloody Dreamer. A good brawl between the two.

Lashley is heading into his locker room, and Mickie James is coming out next.

We see footage between Magnus and Bram the last few months.

Hardcore Country!!

Mickie James makes her TNA return.

Mickie is here to talk about what has happened with Bram. She had an incredible year, she has a beautiful son. She became engaged, and the fans boo over that. But a few weeks ago, her fiancée’s so-called “best friend” beat him down, and left him in an alley.

Bram calls himself a man’s man, but where she comes from, he is nothing but a coward.

Bram comes out to the ring.

Bram has a cue ball.

All of the times when Magnus was there for Bram, and he does this? He has nerve damage, and can’t even hold his own son.

Bram needed Magnus to open his eyes. When he grew up with Magnus, he was a whiskey-drinking fighting machine. And now, he is a pansy. He blames this on Mickie, because he is stuck with her. He is stuck with a bratty kid, and a redneck.

Mickie brings up Bram knows deep down, Magnus would beat his ass, and deep down, Bram is nothing but a little bitch.

Bram has the cue ball and corners Mickie, but Mickie slaps him.

Lashley is with Kurt Angle, and seems taken aback about nobody being able to stop Kurt. Lashley is the World Heavyweight Champion.

Kurt respects Lashley’s accomplishments, and he respects he is the World Heavyweight Champion. But Lashley has never been in the ring with Kurt, and next week he is going for gold.

Lashley will just back off, and watch this happen.

20-man Battle Royal is next.

MVP wins the Battle Royal, after some distractions from BDC, who stayed out there after Kurt Angle eliminated every one of them at the end.

Lashley is watching on, and next week it will be MVP Vs Lashley for the World Title.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A better show tonight than last week. Some nice surprises with a new debuting wrestler, not to mention a returning Knockout.

Next week, MVP Vs Lashley should be a good match, and we will see where we go from here.

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

WWE Thursday Night Smackdown 2/19/15…The Final Road To Fastlane

We begin the show from the brawl we saw this past week on Raw.  We are 3 nights away from Fastlane.  Smackdown is now.

We are in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.  Daniel Bryan kicks the show off.

Daniel is set to face The Miz, one on one.

Daniel made Miz tap out to the Yes Lock.  It’s sad a one time Wrestlemania main eventer, who worked 20-30 minute matches is now working 4 minute matches, and tapping out with ease.

Anyway…

Daniel Bryan is looking at the Wrestlemania sign, and tonight we will see Roman Reigns Vs Roman Reigns.

Also tonight, Dolph Ziggler Vs Seth Rollins with J & J Security banned from ringside.

Feed Me More!!

Wake up, it’s feeding time.

Ryback is in action, next.

Ryback vs Kane, now.

Ryback wins with Shellshock, pinning Kane.

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

Footage from this past Monday night on Raw, with Dean Ambrose and Bad News Barrett.  These two will lock up for the IC Title at Fastlane.

Dean Ambrose comes out to the ring.

Bad News Barrett is in action, with Ambrose on commentary, next.

It’s Barrett Vs R-Truth.

Truth rolls up Barrett, who was distracted by Ambrose.  I guess we know now why Truth had his entrance shown, and not Barrett.

Next, Rusev was crushed, from Raw this past Monday.

Footage from this past Monday night on Raw, when John Cena crushed Rusev.

Bray Wyatt promo, who is singing about The Reaper.  He sings that to his pets, before he puts them down.  He tells him to find him, before Bray find him.

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

But now, it’s a new day to be losing, or so they say.

The New Day will now face The Ascension.

Fall of Man, match is over with.  Conor pins Big E.

Luke Harper Vs Roman Reigns is next.

Reigns wins the match with a spear.

Footage from this past Monday night.  Sting is in HHH’s head, evidence of HHH even shoving his good friend, Ric Flair.

This Sunday night, there will be a Face-To-Face with Sting and HHH.

The Big Show Vs Erick Rowan is now.

Big Show dominates Rowan, knocking him out.

Still to come tonight, Rollins Vs Ziggler, with J & J Security barred from ringside.

Paige Vs Cameron, with The Bellas doing commentary.

PTO, Paige wins with ease.  Girl, bye.

The Rhodes Brothers struggle.  Footage from Raw with Stardust turning his back on family.

Renee Young is standing by with Goldust.

Goldust will face Stardust, one on one this Sunday night at Fastlane.

Goldust knows what Stardust is going through.  He has been down that road himself, but they started winning matches together, started to win titles together.  Then darkness crept in, he saw it a mile away because it has happened to him.  Stardust is eating his brother Cody alive.  And now Goldust has to do something that is most difficult thing in his career, and that is to beat Stardust at Fastlane.

Stardust isn’t impressed with this.  He tells Goldust that at Fastlane, Cody won’t be the only one to exist, the anser is Goldust.

Jimmy Uso Vs Tyson Kidd is up now.

Rusev destroys all four men in the ring, to give this a no contest.

I believe Rusev, who was speaking Russian said he will destroy John Cena this Sunday, but there wasn’t a translator, so….

Rollins Vs Ziggler is next.

Rollins wins the match with a Curbstomp. Kane and Big Show came out, as did Rowan and Ryback.

After the match, all six men brawled with Rollins, Kane, and Big Show getting the better end. My guess is these six men will face off at Fastlane, but if they mentioned it on Smackdown, I missed it.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Once again, not much of a show. We didn’t even have an interaction with Reigns and Bryan, especially considering they are in the main event this Friday, and they had a brawl this past Monday.

So if they don’t care, why should I?

WWE NXT Wrestling 2/18/15…Owens Vs Neville….One On One

After a highly successful NXT Takeover:  Rival last week, we set the gear in motion for what happens now.  Sasha Banks defeated Charlotte, Baylee, and Becky Lynch to be new NXT Divas Champion.  And Kevin Owens defeated Sami Zayn to become the new NXT World Champion.

Where do we go from here?

NXT Wrestling is now.

The NXT General Manager, William Regal welcomes us to the show.  He made this official, Kevin Owens is the new NXT World Champion.  He thinks he is a prizefighter, but Regal is here to say he’s not.  Owens works for NXT, and he will obey these rules.  Tonight, Adrian Neville Vs Kevin Owens in a non-title match.  Adrian doesn’t deserve a title match, but he does deserve to exact revenge from going to the hospital a few weeks ago.

The show begins at Full Sail University, in Orlando, Florida.

The new NXT World Champion, Kevin Owens comes to the ring.

The crowd seems to be mixed here, and it seems there are some people who take issue with how he won the title.  The fact remains Owens has never lied.  He said he would fight anyone to make his family life better, and that is exactly what he did.

Who Owens beats, or how he beats them is irrelevant.  The truth is Sami Zayn is the past.  And when you’re done with the past, you look to the future, which is Finn Balor.

Owens is fully aware that Balor is the Number One Contender to his World Title.  Go to William Regal, pick a date, and Owens will be there.  Because no matter what, nobody will take Kevin’s title from him, or his family.

Rich Brennan, Jason Alberts, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.  We will get an update on Sami Zayn.  Also, the new NXT Divas Champion Sasha Banks takes on Blue Pants, and our main event will be Kevin Owens Vs Adrian Neville.

Our first match is Rhyno against an unnamed opponent.

I guess it’s Elijah Stenson, and Rhyno gores the hell out of him, match is over.

Devin is standing by with Finn Balor.

Kevin Owens won the title, and he has a high opinion of himself.  But Finn is the new Number One Contender, so he thinks highly of himself too.  Kevin calls himself a prize-fighter, Finn has a prize too, and that is the NXT Championship.

Rhyno shows up, has a face to face with Finn and walks away.

Tonight, we get an update on Sami Zayn, and also tonight we will see Kevin Owens Vs Adrian Neville.

The Vaudevillians head to the ring.  They are facing Enzo and Cass, now.

Enzo and Cass win the match, and they want Tag Team Title shots, and that’s not sawft.

Blake and Murphy are on the tron.  That was good, but not good enough.  They suggest to Carmella to leave those two losers, and come with the champs.

The interview guy is with Adrian Neville.

He gets a match with Kevin Owens.

Adrian had an opportunity to get a title shot, but he failed.  But in a weird way, it’s kind of relief.  Because he is used to being the hunted, but now he gets to hunt.  He hasn’t forgotten what happened to him a few weeks ago, but he also is fighting for his good friend Sami Zayn.

Tonight, Sasha Banks Vs Blue Pants.

We hear from Baylee and Becky Lynch.

Baylee will win the NXT Divas Title someday.  Becky Lynch was this close to winning the title, but Baylee prevented that.  She is happy for Sasha, but really happy Charlotte lost.

Good lord, it’s CJ Parker.

CJ is upset he wasn’t on the special last week.  He hates all of us, he hates NXT.  He is ending this show, and taking it hostage.

He is now duct taping the ring.

Now we get the computer screen telling us this not a test.

Solomon Crowe attacks CJ Parker.

And now we return to your regularly scheduled broadcast, and he walks off.

Tonight, we get an update on Sami Zayn.

Also tonight, Neville Vs Owens.

And next, Sasha Banks Vs Blue Pants.

Sasha wins the match with a Bank Statement, followed by a Crossface.

George, I guess that’s his name asks Sasha what it means to be NXT Women’s Champion.

She brings up everyone, including Becky and includes Charlotte will have to admit she is the baddest Diva in NXT.

We see exclusive footage after last week’s Rival show, with officials checking in on Sami.

Dr. Chris Amann speaks and says all of the tests came back positive and when Sami comes back, the doctor expects him to be good to go.

Our main event, Owens Vs Neville is next.

Owens wins the match with a Powerbomb.  Great match between these two men.  Again, just like last week, these two had worked before, so they told a story.

Owens celebrates to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a decent show with a fantastic main event.

We have a return in Rhyno, who seems to have a program with Finn Balor.  You hope, at least.  We get a debut in Solomon Crowe.  I have never seen him work, but Sami Callihan looks to have had a good debut, so we will see.  We also see the new Women’s champ being shown very well tonight, and of course our main event, which is a must-see.

The one thing I am not sure of though is if you set up that Sami is truly hurt, why have the doctor say “Oh, he is good”?

Just sell the beat down, and have him miss a month or so.

Overall, a good show.  Give me your thoughts on it.

WWE Monday Night Raw 2/16/15…The American Dream Is In Da House…If Ya Wheel

Happy Birthday to my Grandmother Carolyn Thompson, who turned 92 years young, and my dog Romeo, who just turn 3.

Tonight, we are live, and in color, if ya wheel.  “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes is here, and will confront his two boys.

We are in Orlando, Florida.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show.

John Cena kicks off the show.

Tonight, Daniel Bryan faces The Big Show.  And Reigns faces Kane.

We are a week away from Fastlane.  Cena is amazed by a sold out arena in Orlando.

We see footage of last week, when Rusev went after Cena’s eye and sent him through the Raw platform, receiving a scratched cornea.

Cena is here to say no more.  Even though Rusev crushed him last week, he is saying no more.

Rusev is a super athlete, they say he is unstoppable, and Cena says that is full of crap.  He is here to say he will beat Rusev this Sunday.  He will have to put the fight to Rusev.  He slides into the ring every week, and he loves when the fans boo, and when the fans cheer.  This is what Raw is about.  Having fun.

But having fun isn’t going to cut it this Sunday with Rusev.  Everytime people ask when will Cena change.  And every opponent, Cena conquers with a smile on his face.  But now Rusev says he has lost a step, that he lacks the aggression it takes to compete with an athlete like Rusev.  If you want aggression, you got it.  There won’t be smiles this Sunday, just active aggression, and he will defeat Rusev for the first time.  This Sunday, he fights to win the United States Championship.

Here comes Rusev.

Typical John Cena giving us the tired, old rhetoric.  You just don’t get it John.  He’s not a stupid American, but he lives in a delusional world.  Where his cup is half fill, as Lana says.  She and Rusev live in the reality.  The reality is Rusev is a world-class athlete, and the greatest United States Champion.  John comes back after a brutal beating, Lana promises this time, there will be no coming back.

Rusev doesn’t need our USA.  He will destroy Cena, and everything he stands for.  His body, his spirit, his will to live will be crushed.

Cena talks about Rusev never getting his ass kicked.  He makes one more move, and he will get his ass kicked.

Rusev does the You Can’t See Me gesture.

Cena comes out to destroy Rusev.  And now Cena rams Rusev’s head through the platform.

Cena is kicking Rusev’s ass now, with Cena telling him every man can be beat.

Rusev needs the win this Sunday.

Moments ago, we see Cena take Rusev out.

Earlier today, Dean Ambrose gave us a “Weekend Update”, saying that Dean will beat Luke Harper and at the end of the night, Bad News Barrett will sign a contract for the IC Title match at Fastlane.

Ambrose Vs Harper is now.

Dirty Deeds, match is over.

Ambrose wants his IC Title match signed.

Switching gears, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes is here in Orlando today.  He is going to settle things for both of his boys.

What is next for HHH?  We will find out tonight.

Also, Daniel Bryan faces The Big Show and Roman Reigns faces Kane.

I hate the name of Fastlane for a PPV.

HHH is talking to Kane, and they come across The Big Show.

Kane and Big Show are bickering like 2 school children.  HHH stops them and says they represent The Authority.  Seeing them argue, do you know how that makes HHH look?

Big Show gives a comment about the same way Sting made HHH look.

HHH tells him he will deal with Sting tonight.  He is looking for solutions, get it?

Bray Wyatt interrupts.

What happened to him disturbs Bray?  It makes Bray do horrible things.  And now that fear he once had for him is turned to pity.

It’s coming.

Good lord, another backstage segment.

This time with The Rhodes.

Goldust tells Stardust he doesn’t want to go down that road, and here comes “The American Dream”.

Stardust just blows stars in the mist, and Dusty tells him there is blood here, and no matter what, he loves them both.

Goldust asks him if he can do this.  Stardust reaches out, shakes hands, and gives Goldust a hug.

They have a match tonight.

Gold and Stardust Vs The New Day.

Xavier and Kofi win the match with Xavier doing a spinning heel kick, pinning Goldust, after Goldy caught Stardust and saved him from being kicked.

Stardust checks on Goldy after the match, made sure he’s okay then hits Crossroads, turning on his brother for good.

Byron Saxton is with Roman Reigns, wanting to know what the journey feels like the last few weeks.

Reigns is staying focused on the destination, and that is to main event Wrestlemania.

Byron wants to know if there is any resentment towards The Authority.  Roman talks about The Authority tried to take popular opinion, and turn the tables by pushing Seth Rollins into the mix, and it didn’t work.

But Daniel Bryan did the same thing, right?  Let’s put it like this, if the roles were reversed, and Roman was thrown over the top rope, he would take it like a man, and not whine about it.

Daniel has this opportunity because Roman gave it to him, and he’s going to take that opportunity back, after this Sunday.

Reigns Vs Kane is up next, with Daniel Bryan joining commentary.

We are in Orlando, and during the commercial, Dusty confronted Stardust.  Cody Rhodes is gone.  He was destined to live in the shadow of his father, and live in the embarrassment of his brother.  That was a disaster, a beautiful disaster.  But Cody exploded.  He dances with the stars now.  Cody Rhodes is dead.  And as far as Stardust is concerned, so is his father.

Reigns Vs Kane now.

Reigns wins the match by countout, which seems a bit cheap here.  Daniel was being doubted by commentary, and we had the Yes chants dominate the match.

After the win, Reigns invited Daniel into the ring, but Daniel instead went around the ring to chant yes.

When we come back, we see Daniel being interviewed by Renee Young.

It seems like Roman was distracted here with the yes chants, so is that Daniel’s strategy?

Daniel brings up if Roman can’t handle a few yes chants, then he has no chance of winning this Sunday.

Bray Wyatt interrupts us, yet again.

Bray just tells us to be ready.

Byron Saxton wants to interview Paige, but The Bella Twins have stolen her ring gear.

Paige comes out in a towel, looking for her clothes. For some unknown reason, she finds Cameron there. Paige asks Cameron if she has ring gear to borrow, and Cameron, the only air time she has had in about 5 months tells her no, and girl, bye.

Paige sees the Rosebuds, and takes a girl in a firy costume when we go to a break.

Paige, decked in the fairy outfit faces Summer Rae.

Paige wins with the PTO, complete in a fairy outfit.

The Bella Twins come out to mock Paige in her outfit, but Paige interrupts and says to her, it’s about winning. And after this Sunday, she will be wearing the Divas Title, again.

Seth Rollins Vs Dolph Ziggler is next.

Sheamus returns to WWE.

Rollins comes out.

Rollins is about the future. He is sick and tired of talking about the past. He is the most talented performer in the world, right now. He is untouchable, and can do whatever he wants, whenever he wants. But what he really wants to do is cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase, and become the new WWE World Champion. He should be main eventing Wrestlemania. But instead, he has to deal with people who are so beneath him like Erick Rowan, Ryback, and Dolph Ziggler.

Enter Ziggler.

Ziggler tells us some jokes about Rollins, and Seth said that the only joke Ziggler knows is the joke of his career.

Ziggler is nothing like Rollins.

Ziggler tells Seth he’s right, he’s not a douche. But Ziggler will tell you the kind of guy he is. He is the kind that took out The Authority. And since they are back, he can do the next best thing, and take out Rollins, and show-off.

Ziggler Vs Rollins is now.

Ziggler wins by DQ, when J & J Security helped Rollins out. But here comes backup with Ryback and Rowan. Ryback gave Mercury a Meathook Clothesline.

HHH is watching backstage. he speaks next.

This Sunday night, on the Fastlane Pre-Show, we will an episode of Miz TV with The Miz and his guest, Paul Heyman.

HHH comes out to the ring.

We see footage of last week.

So word on the street is HHH is afraid of Sting? He finds that laughable. It takes more than just mind games. At Fastlane, the unthinkable will happen. Sting, “The ICON”, “The Franchise” will go face to face with “The Game”, “The Cerebral Assassin”.

WOOOOOOOOO

Here comes Ric Flair.

Flair is here to get something straight around here. Flair loves him, he respects him.

HHH told Flair he is here to sing praises for Sting. Save it, he has heard that many times.

Flair tells HHH to not take Sting lightly. HHH knows who Sting is, he has done his homework. He saw him, a blonde-haired punk kid go 60 minutes with you.

He also watched Sting become the Franchise, and earned your respect. sting was, and still is WCW. He watched the very last Nitro, Sting was on top and when all of the other rats jumped ship, Sting never did that and he has respect for him.

But if he had come here, HHH would have kicked his ass, and kick him out. Because he built his reputation on Flair’s accomplishments, and that pisses him off.

But that was then, and this is now. So now, he wants to make this personal. Sting is WCW, but make no mistake about it, HHH is WWE.

Flair reminds him that HHH lost to Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania 30. He did that, because he wasn’t a full-time wrestker.

HHH is not Ric Flair. But make no mistake about it, nobody can kick ass like HHH, and Ric Flair isn’t HHH.

Flair tells him not to be on the ground after he sees him this Sunday.

HHH shoves Flair, and tells him that outside of hos kids and his wife. Nobody will take his company.

He walks away, it seems John Cena will appear on “Parks and Recreation” this coming Tuesday night.

Earlier tonight, Cena knocked out Rusev,

Cena Vs Rusevl is set this Sunday.

Tonight, Daniel Bryan vs Big Show.

Darren Young, and his partner are set to face The Ascension. They don’t even tell us the dude’s name here.

Titus O’ Neil shows up to help Darren Young with The Ascension, taking them out.

Are The Primetime Players back?

The Miz wants Bad News Barrett to take care of Mizdow, and in turn, he will watch for Dean Ambrose, to make sure Barrett doesn’t get his signature. Seems like a good deal

Bad News Barrett Vs Damien Mizdow is up now.

Barrett wins with the Bull Hammer, and The Miz kept distracting Mizdow, telling him to polish his shoe, but the IC Champion prevailed.

Now comes Dean Ambrose, who lays out Bad News Barrett, and ties him around a ring post. He grabs the contract, and forces Barrett to sign the contract, set for Fastlane.

Now we have Bray Wyatt, again.

What shakes a heart of a man who truly dies? The answer is within Bray. The answer is the creature within Bray Wyatt. There is no other way with this. Find me, or I will find you.

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

Jimmy Uso and Naomi Vs Tyson Kidd and Natalya is up now.

Naomi and Jimmy win the match when Naomi rolled up Nattie for the win.

Tyson is now berating her, wondering what happened. It’s all of her fault.

The Uso’s Vs Tyson and Cesaro is this Sunday, at Fastlane.

Earlier tonight, Reigns hits a spear on Kane outside of the ring, causing a countout win. Daniel Bryan distracted him, and Roman seemed bothered by it.

Bryan Vs Big Show is up now.

But first, Roman Reigns comes out for commentary.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, Ziggler Vs Rollins, with J & J Security banned from ringside.

Our main event, Daniel Bryan Vs The Big Show is now.

Daniel Bryan is DQ’d when Reigns his a Superman Punch on Show, after Show laid out Reigns.

The show ends with both men trading blows, with officials breaking them up. We have a Norman Smiley sighting. But that doesn’t help, when Daniel has the final saying laying out Reings.

Reigns Vs Bryan this Sunday. We are on the Fastlane to Wrestlemania.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I’ve said it before here, The Road To Wrestlemania hasn’t really started, because they have a February PPV to promote. And some of what they showed, I have no interest of. But some I do. I want to see what happens to Reigns Vs Bryan. Do we set it up where Brock Lesnar comes out, and destroys both men, setting up a Triple Threat match at Mania?

It was great to see Flair back, and I loved hearing from HHH. To hear from Sting this Sunday is intriguing.

I am also tired of hearing Seth Rollins say the same thing every week. At some point, and I have to think it will be very soon, he will cash in his MITB briefcase, perhaps at Wrestlemania?

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

Impact Wrestling 2/13/15…A Night In Glasgow

Last week, we saw Lockdown, when Team Angle defeated Team BDC, and this includes Lashley being Kurt’s partner.

Where do we go from here?

Impact Wrestling is now.

Beat Down Clan arrives in Glasgow.

MVP assures his team last week did not happen, so get it off of their minds, and prove what they can do.  Beat people down, because they can.  Joe tells them that Gunner, Aries, Angle, Lashley, and Roode are all going to pay for what they did.  Time to collect on their asses.

Kurt Angle comes to the ring.

Throughout Kurt’s career, he has always been drawn to individual success.  The Olympics, World Titles, and Hall of Fames.  He wants to personally thank Gunner and Austin Aries for being a part of Team Angle and take care of Team BDC.

They want to control the World Title.  But who know who should control the World Title?  The best wrestler the business has, Kurt Angle.

Kurt wants to bring out Lashley, the man who helped him last week.

Lashley come out, and Kurt tells him he wouldn’t join Team Angle, but he changed his mind.  And as long as Lashley has the title, he will always be a target of BDC.  Kurt wants to personally thank Lashley.

The two men shake hands.

Lashley tells him he didn’t help him for Kurt, he did it to get his hands on that piece of trash, MVP.

Kurt tells him that wasn’t the only reason he brought him out here, he wants his hands on the World Title as well and become World Champion.

What do you say?

Enter BDC.

MVP tells them before they fight it out, or hug it out, Team Angle didn’t officially beat Team BDC, because Lashley wasn’t an official team member of Team Angle.

But he’s right about one thing, BDC will do whatever it takes to beat down Angle and Lashley.  There isn’t anything they can do about it, so who will take the ass whooping?

Lashley tells MVP if they want a fight, Lashley will fight any 2 members of BDC.  With his partner being Kurt Angle.

Tonight, Matt Hardy gives us an update on Jeff Hardy.

But next, Austin Aries Vs Bobby Roode.

Aries and Roode have a backstage confrontation.  The two men have alot of history together.  They fought for each other, but tonight, it’s not the same.  Roode tells Austin this is all about getting another World Title shot, so let’s leave it all in the ring.

That match is next.

Last Friday night, Tyrus defeated Spud and Mandrews.  EC3 was about to cut Spud’s hair, but JB stopped him.

Earlier today, EC3 shares his thoughts on JB.  Patience is not one of Ethan’s fortes.  He wanted to shave Spud’s hair, but JB stopped that.  So he is issuing a challenge, Spud, Mandrews, and JB Vs Tyrus and EC3.  He has his backup, and Ethan always gets what he wants.

Aries Vs Roode is now.

Roode makes Aries tap out to the Crossface.

Next week, a 20 man Gauntlet Battle Royal to determine the new Number One Contender to the World Title.  The top 5 rankings will go through 16-20 in the Battle Royal, so will Bobby draw number 20?

Roode is on the mic, he says this is pro wrestling.  Austin Aries is one of the greatest wrestlers he has ever been in the ring with.

The two men shake hands, and Roode says it is time to get his World Title back.

Roode knows Lashley has his hands full with Beat Down Clan.  But Lashley knows Roode-Lashley III didn’t really happen, and he deserves a rematch.

He doesn’t care, he doesn’t care when, but he will get his title again.

Eric Young attacks him from behind and nails a piledriver.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw, Eric Young attacking Bobby Roode and hitting a Piledriver.

Roode is being helped to the back.

Young attacks him again, and hits another Piledriver right on the outside floor.

Taz and Josh Matthews talk about what we just saw in TNA Headquarters.

Al Snow is in the ring.

The crowd is booing Al, because of what took place at British Boot Camp.

Al has been in this business for 33 years, competing all over the world.  But he has also trained some of the best wrestlers.  And we all may think we can do what he does, but we can’t.  Because we are all sitting there, while he does what he does.

He encountered someone just like us on the show, and will give Grado one week to quit doing, before he gets an ass kicking, next week.

He orders Grado to come to the ring, and he does.

Snow doesn’t think Grado has the heart to be in this business, because he never respected Snow, and he never respected the boys in the back.

Grado takes the mic, and tells Snow we are in Glasgow, and we don’t take any crap.

Al meets Grado’s mom and tells her she should be ashamed of him.  She needs to do the right thing, and tell him to walk away and quit.

Grado’s mom slaps him, and Grado fights back with Snow.

The match is on for next week.  Grado beats Snow, Al will shake his hand.  But he knows nobody in this stinking building can beat him.

We see Jeff Hardy fall off the steel cage, and bounce his head on the steel step.  Matt Hardy is here tonight, and will give us an update on Jeff.

Crazzy Steve is in the ring.  He will face Bram.

Bram wins with an impale DDT.  He is on the mic, daring Magnus to come out and saying he won’t stop until he comes out.

Spud and Mandrews is giving JB a pep talk, about taking care of EC3, for shaving JB’s head, besides, Spud has backup.

Our main event tonight is Angle and Lashley Vs any 2 members of BDC.  Gunner talks to Kurt.  He wants to thank him for choosing him as a part of Team Angle.  But is he sure he should go out there tonight, with Lashley as his partner.  Kurt wants Lashley at his best, because he will be TNA World Champ someday.  He knows Gunner has his back.

EC3 and Tyrus Vs Spud, Mandrews, and Jeremy Borash is now.

EC3 and Tyrus win when Ethan pins Spud with a One Percenter, and Jeremy Borash took himself out by trying a Frogsplash on Tyrus.

EC3 has the shears, and he starts to shave Spud’s hair, but the lights go out, and it’s Mr. Anderson!!

Anderson takes care of EC3 and Tyrus, so Anderson was Spud’s backup.

Next week is Gunner’s opportunity to win the Gauntlet Battle Royal and receive a World Title match.

Kenny King and Lo-Ki take out Gunner.

Madison Rayne is in the ring.

The fans love her, and she doesn’t care.  She just wants to make one thing abundantly clear.

We hear a big foot stomp.

Madison is the Queen Bee in the Knockout Division in the last 6 years.  She is one title win away from being the most decorated Knockout Champion, ever.

2 more stomps.

To all of the ladies in the back, there is not one of you that can beat her in this ring.

It’s Awesome Kong!!

Kong Vs Madison is now.

Kong wins with the Implant Buster.

I love how slowly that music came on, it was like a scene from Jurassic World.

Matt Hardy will speak, next.

Kurt Angle sees Austin Aries.  Austin shows Kurt his briefcase.  Everyone wants their shot, and they did fight with each other last week.  But if Kurt wins the title, he has a bullseye.  It’s real, damn real.

Kurt loves adversity, it’s what a champion is all about.

Austin reminds Kurt he has been World Champ before, and he will be again.

Footage from last week, when Jeff Hardy took his fall.

Matt Hardy comes to the ring.

Matt loves being with these fans, but he wishes Jeff can be with him.  Jeff loves this business so much, and he has taken iconic risks.  And even though Jeff has taken bumps before, he would always give Matt a small sign that he was okay.  But when he took his fall on the steel steps, Jeff did not give him a thumbs up, and Hardy looked empty in his eyes.  For the first time, Matt saw doubt in Jeff Hardy.  So congratulations James Storm, he did something no other person could do.

Enter The Revolution.

Matt is right, because James did what Edge and Christian couldn’t do.  He did what Team 3-D couldn’t do.  Bobby Roode, Austin Aries, Sting, Bobby Lashley.  Hell, he did what The Undertaker couldn’t do.  He broke Jeff Hardy.  He is the villain, and in his version, heroes never win.

Now Matt Hardy, Storm will give Matt 2 options.  Option 1, give the V signal, and join The Revolution.  Or, option 2, they can set up a nice bed next to Jeff, and put Matt right next to Jeff.

Well, as Matt would say, Jeff does have a nice hospital bed.

The Revolution swarm in and attack Matt Hardy.

With The Revolution, they say an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.  And in Matt’s case, they will take his heart.

But here come The Wolves, siding with Matt Hardy.

Our main event, Lashley and Kurt team up to face any 2 members of BDC, next.

Austin Aries has no time frame for when he cashes in the briefcase.

Kenny King comes over, but Austin is on him.  But here come MVP and Lo-Ki.  MVP tells Austin he is not cashing in the briefcase tonight.

Lashley and Kurt Vs MVP and Joe is our main event.

MVP and Joe win the match when Angle almost runs into Lashley, and MVP rolls up Lashley for the pin.

BDC get their redemption from last week as the show ends here.

Next week, The Gauntlet Battle Royal to determine the new Number One Contender.  And what will happen when MVP confronts Lashley?

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Certainly not as good as last week’s Lockdown, but we sort of already knew that.  I did like seeing the importance of the World Title.  Roode Vs Aries is always fun to watch, and the BDC needed this redemption after last week.  European shows are usually fun to see in TNA, and this was no exception.

Send me your thoughts on the show.

WWE Thursday Night Smackdown 2/12/15…Tag Team Turmoil

Kane is standing by with some of the participants tonight.  We are going to have a Tag Team Turmoil, featuring Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan.

Kane and Big Show are rallying around the troops, they all have an opportunity to make an impact.

We are 45 days away from Wrestlemania, and we kick the show off with Bray Wyatt.

It’s Wyatt Vs R-Truth, now.

Sister Abigail, that is all she wrote, for Truth.

Tonight, we will see a Fastlane Roadblock between Rusev and John Cena, from Monday night.

It’s Paige Vs Summer Rae.

The Bella Twins are at commentary, with Paige making Summer Rae tap out to the PTO, and stares at The Bella Twins, goating them to come into the ring.

At Fastlane, Paige faces Nikki Bella for the Divas Title.

We see footage from this past Monday night, when Rusev clipped at Cena’s eye and laid him out.  At Fastlane, these two clash.

Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns are involved in a Tag Team Turmoil, tonight.

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

Rikishi is the new inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Our next match is “I am still working here” Adam Rose Vs “The new and improved” Fandango.

Fandango wins with the Last Dance, pinning Rose again.  Adam’s Rosebuds try to console him, but Adam shoves them all, and walks away.

Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns have the Tag Team Turmoil tonight.  Next, did Sting accept HHH’s offer to go face to face at Fastlane?  Find out next.

Raw Rebound with Sting accepting HHH’s offer to go face to face with him at Fastlane.

This Monday night, on Raw.  “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, if you wheel will be on Raw, to settle his two sons’ differences.

Tag Team Turmoil will begin now.  Reigns and Bryan face The Miz and Damien Mizdow first.

Bryan and Reigns win the match when Daniel slapped a tag on Reigns, and gives Miz a High Knee.

So now, it’s Reigns and Bryan Vs The Uso’s.

Daniel Bryan and Reigns win when Bryan makes Jey tap out to the Yes Lock. Reigns was showing compassion for his cousins, while Daniel was being aggressive. So the team still can’t get along.

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

Next up in Tag Team Turmoil is Los Matadores.

It’s squashing time now, guys.

Not as short as this match should have been, but Daniel slaps another Yes Lock and wins.

Slater Gator is up now.

Now this match was short, a squash. Reigns nails a spear, pinning Slater.

The Ascension is up now.

The Ascension are DQ’d, when Ascension lay out both Reigns and Bryan.

With Reigns and Bryan out, here comes….

Big Show and Kane.

Daniel and Reigns win when Big Show and Kane can’t get along. Kane wanted to win, and get out. Big Show wanted to have some fun. Bryan hits a high knee on Show, and pins him for the win.

After the match, Daniel and Reigns are looking at the Wrestlemania sign, and show some respect for each other, and the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

It was different, showcasing Reigns and Daniel with Tag Team Turmoil, that started at 8:45, with 1:15 left of the show. These two went coast to coast, and found a way to win.

Everything else was there, but the show was based around Reigns and Bryan, so I have no issue with it, and this was better than Raw.

What were your thoughts? Send them to me.

WWE NXT Takeover Rival 2/11/15

Tonight, the landscape has changed.  Tonight, we put our attention to the NXT World Title match.  Sami Zayn defends his title against Kevin Owens.  We will also determine a new Number One Contender with Aaron Neville Vs Finn Balor.  And a Fatal 4-Way for the NXT Divas Title, with Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks Vs Baylee Vs Becky Lynch.

Corey and Byron think we will have a new champion.  Jason believes in Sami.

Number One Contender match is up for grabs too.  Adrian Neville Vs Finn Balor.

Number One Contender tournament video is being shown.

These two men have grown up in the wrestling business together.  This match should blow the roof off.

Adrian has big-match experience in NXT before.  Balor does not.  Adrian has the edge here, but Jason brings up the unknown factor for Finn.

Kevin Owens entered the building earlier today.

Last week, Tyler Breeze attacked Hideo Itami, and tonight these two face each other.

Also tonight, Bull Dempsey Vs Baron Corbin in a No DQ match.

Footage of Adrian Neville beating Baron, with some assistance from Bull Dempsey.

Lucha Dragons will face the new Tag Team Champions, Blake and Murphy.

Also, for the first time in NXT history, a Fatal 4-Way for the NXT Divas Title.  Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks Vs Baylee Vs Becky Lynch.

Divas video is showing now.

She’s ready to defend her title tonight.

Charlotte told Corey that Sasha is an opportunist, and has never beaten her one on one.

Our main event preview is up next.

Earlier today, Sami Zayn enters the building.

Byron goes with the crowd, getting their intake on Owens Vs Zayn.

Owens Vs Zayn video is being shown now, it’s an awesome look at their history and what this match means.

NXT Takeover:  Rival is up now.

An awesome video is showing now, setting the stage up for tonight.  3 big matches are set, and the show begins now.

We are live at Full Sail University, in Orlando, Florida.

We begin the show with Hideo Itami Vs “Prince Pretty” Tyler Breeze.

Rich Brennan, Jason Alberts, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

Hideo wins the match with a kick to the head, pinning Tyler Breeze.  Another GTS tease, and when he hits it for the first time, the roof will be blown up.

William Regal is checking on Kevin Owens.  Tonight, Owens Vs Zayn for the NXT World Title.

But now, it’s Bull Dempsey Vs Baron Corbin, in a No DQ match.

Corbin wins with End of Days.  Bull was bit sloppy in this match, but End of Days is a sweet move for Baron.

Corbin has pinned Dempsey now three times, and he sits on a chair after the match, and sort of mocks him.

William Regal is going over the rules with Sami Zayn in the locker room.

The divas are getting ready for their Fatal 4-Way later tonight.

Tag Team Titles are on the line, Lucha Dragons Vs Blake and Murphy is up now.

Blake and Murphy show their title wins were not a fluke, Blake pins Sin Cara with a Frogsplash, and win.

The video interrupts and says The Takeover isn’t over.  It has only just begun, and it continues the next week.

Graves, Brennan, and Albert welcome us to the show, again.  3 big matches are set.

Number One Contenders match is set tonight.  Finn Balor Vs Adrian Neville.

Neville Vs Balor is now.

Balor wins with a Coup De Gras.  Amazing match these two men had, that represented how important this win was.  Finn was wearing full body paint, and had an amazing entrance.

After the match, the two men shake hands, with Adrian leaving the ringside.

“The Boss” Sasha Banks and Charlotte get ready for their match.

Fatal 4-Way for the NXT Divas Title is up now.

Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks Vs Baylee Vs Becky Lynch.

“The Boss” Sasha Banks pins Charlotte to become the new NXT Divas Champion.

Another excellent match here, what an incredible story these four women told, and with time, women’s wrestling can be entertaining and meaningful.

After the match, Charlotte wants to shake Sasha’s hand, but they hugged it out, then shoved each other, which was a nice twist.

The last two matches have been as exciting as they made it out to be.

We are 46 days away from Wrestlemania.

Now the stage is set for the main event.  NXT Title is on the line.  Sami Zayn Vs Kevin Owens, now.

This match was Lesnar Vs Cena, with Kevin playing the role of Lesnar.  5 Powerbombs, and the match changed when Sami sent Kevin into a senton off the top rope.  Zayn hit his head on the steel ramp, and was very loopy the rest of the match.  The referee wouldn’t stop the fight, doctors and officials would check on him, and Sami refused to quit.

Incredible storytelling here, and Kevin leaves the event strong.

Owens stands over Sami with the title, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

What a show this was, certainly lived up to everything they were building, especially the last three matches.

And now with Owens winning, we are sure to get Owens Vs Balor soon, even though Sami will get a rematch soon, but if he truly has a concussion, it won’t be anytime soon.

WWE has alot to live up to, because these NXT events have outperformed any big events WWE has done for the most part of the year.  WWE has the talent, they just need a different direction to truly give what the fans want to see.

This will be good for the entire wrestling business, and right now, NXT is WWE’s main competition.

So game on, WWE.

What were your thoughts with the show?  Send them to me here, Smackdown is tomorrow night, but I will see it Friday.

WWE Monday Night Raw 2/9/15…Columbus City Showdown

Last Monday, HHH gave us an announcement that shocked the foundation to its core.  Giving us Daniel Bryan Vs Roman Reigns, at Fast Lane, to determine who faces Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania.

A Raw intro again, they must truly read my reports.

We are live in Columbus, Ohio.  The home state of yours truly.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show.

Roman Reigns, who seems to be loved here in THE Ohio State University comes out to start the show.

Roman stood here last week, the winner of the 2015 Royal Rumble match.  And when you win the Rumble, you are guaranteed a spot in the main event at Wrestlemania.  It means he faces Brock Lesnar, and he becomes the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  But last week, it was clear The Authority does not want Roman in that spot.  So he faces Daniel Bryan, at Fast Lane.  He moves to Wrestlemania, and becomes the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  He doesn’t care now who gets in his way, because he will go through them, and you can believe that.

Enter Daniel Bryan.

The Yes Movement is alive in C-Bus.

Daniel didn’t come out here to fight him, he came out here to thank Roman.  During his match with Rollins, Roman speared The Big Show.  And without that, Rollins might have beat him, but he wanted to thank him for the opportunity.  But Roman has an opportunity too.  At Fast Lane, it will be Roman Vs Bryan, with the winner facing Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania.

Now he understands Roman is bigger than Daniel.  He is stronger than Daniel.  When it comes to looks, they are even.  But when it comes to wrestling, Daniel is the better wrestler than Reigns.

Here come The Authority.

Stephanie understands they are all revved up for Fast Lane, which HHH reminds us is the same show that Sting shows up.  He hasn’t heard from Sting, and he wants an answer by the end of tonight.  Is he a man?  Or is he a coward, like he thinks he is.

Stephanie drills Roman for costing Rollins his match, he drilled an “innocent” man like The Big Show, simply because Big Show beat Roman earlier that night.

Actually, Roman points out, he did it because he can.

Okay, but Daniel Bryan put Kane in a barbaric casket 2 weeks ago.  Daniel talks about WWE put him in that kind of match, and at least he didn’t do what HHH does with caskets (Katie Vick).

Stephanie said enough of the back and forth, we are here for action.  Reigns and Bryan Vs Kane and Big Show, now.

Daniel and Roman win the match by DQ, when Big Show took Daniel out of the ring and flung him over the barricade.  Reigns fight Show, but big guy whacks him with a chair.  Reigns hits a Superman punch, but Show is still standing until he flings him out of the ring with a chair.  But Kane tries a Chokeslam, and Daniel accidentally kicks Reigns in the head.

The Authority love this though, watching some added tension.  Reigns shoves Daniel, and now the two men are bickering.

Oh shit, another Handicap match is added.

Later tonight, Bryan and Reigns Vs Kane, Big Show, J & J Security, and Seth Rollins.

Our next match is Seth Rollins Vs Ryback.

And we have 2 straight DQ finishes.  Ryback wins by DQ, when J & J Security attacks Ryback, but Rollins hits a Curbstomp for good measure.

Tonight, HHH wants an answer from Sting.  And Lana promises she and Rusev will honor John Cena.

Sheamus returns.

Paige will face Brie Bella.

Paige defeats Brie, like it was nothing.  Paige informs Brie and Nikki this is her house.

Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are here tonight, to discuss the state of FastLane.

Rusev and Lana salute John Cena, next.

At FastLane, United States Championship is on the line, Rusev Vs John Cena.

Lana and Rusev are proud to wear John Cena, at WWE FastLane.  And John Cena should be honored to face “The Super Athlete” Rusev.  John Cena is a fighting champion throughout his entire career, and just like the Grammys, they want to acknowledge Cena’s great career.

Cena video is showing, but it’s interrupted by many times Cena has been knocked out.

13 years is a long time, and Cena’s body must ache.  He is a very strong man, but his body is very vulnerable.  He’s due for an anhiliation.

Rusev tells us the man he once was no longer exists.

You don’t want Rusev, he is a hero.

What?

Rusev is a hero.

Cena is no longer the young, tough man who was full of ruthless aggression.  Now he is weak, and nothing.  At FastLane, he will destroy his body, and crush his spirit.

Here comes Cena.

Cena tells us Rusev is already talking about him beating Cena at FastLane.  And that he is facing a broken down old man.  And that he is so beatable.  So why should they even face each other at FastLane?  It’s because these people, just like Cena is saying shut the hell up.

Cena has had his neck broke, his elbow broken, but every single time he gets down, he gets right back up.

Cean is all about teaching Rusev some respect.

John isn’t taking Rusev lightly, he will try to take Cena out and is everything he says he is, a super-athlete.  But he’s going to do everything he can to beat him, and this old man will whip Rusev’s ass.

Rusev tells Cena he can talk alot standing back over there, he can’t even see Rusev with his one good eye.  At WWE FastLane, he will crush Cena.

Okay, Rusev has the jokes, but Lana has the balls.  If you have any, step out and fight.

Here we go.

Rusev and Cena fight it out, with Cena getting some shots, but Rusev pokes Cena in the eye, and slams him right onto the Raw background.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw….Cena can’t see.

Dolph Ziggler Vs Bray Wyatt is set now.

Bray picks up another win with Sister Abigail. Another good match between these two. After the match, Wyatt takes the mats off the ringside area, and wants to hit Sister Abigail again, but referees and officials stop him from doing so.

Bray apologizes to Ziggler, and the announcers no-sell it.

Switching gears, we celebrate WWE Black History Month.

Honoring The Junkyard Dog.

Tonight, 5-on-2 Handicap match takes place. Will Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns get along?

But next, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman address the nation.

We are live at The University of Ohio State, NCAA Undisputed Football Champions.

Here Comes The Pain!!

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman. And he has been rewarded the opportunity to reveal some information, in regards to the Beast Incarnated, The WWE World Champion, BROCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKK LESNAR!!

People look at Brian Williams, and believe he is the number one liar in the land, but in reality, he is a distant second to Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns.

Because the two men have an opportunity to face Brock, at Wrestlemania. And if either man comes out here to say they have a chance to beat Brock, then they are lying. They are lying to us, they are lying to their family, and most importantly, they are lying to themselves.

Let’s take a look at Roman Reigns. He is on of the baddest individuals, and from the most feared tribe, from the most feared island in Samoa. But when he looked eye to eye to Roman, that yellow stream down his leg was not pineapple juice.

But he shouldn’t be ashamed, it’s a normal reaction when he goes face to face with The Beast.

Then there is Daniel Bryan.

Yes!! Yes!! Yes!!

The ultimate lie of Daniel telling us he has a chance against Brock Lesnar. Let’s look at Daniel Bryan, and then let’s look at Brock. Do you actually think he stands a chance?

Not just size ability, because we know what Daniel makes up in size, he makes up in wrestling ability. But what about do we actually think he is the one to beat the one at 21-1?

But it doesn’t matter, because whoever wins at Fastlane will take a helicopter ride with Brian Williams, and go down in a blaze of glory, because that is the fate of anyone who has to face the undisputed, WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World….Brock Lesnar.

HHH wants Sting’s answer if he is going to be there at Fastlane tonight. And we will see a 5-on-2 Handicap match tonight.

Gold and Stardust Vs The New Day is up now.

Cody walks out on his brother again, and Kofi rolls up Goldust for the win.

Earlier tonight, we see Daniel Bryan accidentally kick Roman Reigns in the head, and Roman shoves him.

Renee Young is with Daniel Bryan.

Daniel understands why Roman got upset, even though it was an accident. Does he think they can get along? Reigns intervenes, and says they can because they both have a common enemy. He knows it was an accident, but they need to move through this, so the two face each other at Fastlane for the opportunity to main event Wrestlemania.

HHH wants Stings answer, next.

When we come back, Goldust confronts Stardust, calls him Cody again and Stardust shoves him. Telling him Cody is dead, he will always be Stardust.

HHH is in the ring.

For 20 years, HHH ate, breathed, slept this business. Trying to do whatever he could to cement his place in this business. And he has seen guys come and go in those 20 years. Sting was the face of WCW, a company he helped beat. Because for 14 years, he stayed away. Sting knew if he’d come here, he’d personally expose him.

Then for some reason, 14 years later, Sting finally took his shot and when he did, Sting took it the coward way. So now, HHH will call him out, like a man and tell him why he was right to stay away. And if he agrees, then HHH will graciously allow him to step out of the ring, and leave with his dignity.

For two weeks, HHH has called out HHH to show up Fastlane. He is not a patient man, so he wants his answer right now.

We hear the crow, look up at the balcony, and there he is. Then we see another shot of Sting at a balcony.

Then see a video, of Sting spelling out HHH’s name.

The fans chant for Sting. Lights go out, a figure comes from behind HHH scares the crap out of him, then sees a sign on the screen that he accepts the invitation.

Earlier tonight, we see Rusev attacking Cena. He has a damaged cornea but will vow to be there in 2 weeks, at Fastlane.

The Uso’s are in action.

The Uso’s Vs Tyson Kidd and Cesaro is up now.

Cesaro and Kidd win the match, with Cesaro nailing Jey. So going by this logic, you know with the Uso’s losing….

The newest inductee to the WWE Hall of Fame is….

Rikishi.

Congratulations to Rikishi.

Damien Mizdow is in action, next.

This Wednesday night, NXT Takeover Rival. But no superstars were here tonight, but at least they did advertise it. Featured at 8:00, exclusively on the WWE Network.

Sin Cara will face Damien Mizdow, now.

Miz continued to berate Mizdow, and cost him the match when Sin Cara rolls him up for the win. Miz was irate about Mizdow using a Figure Four.

Okay, switching gears, WWE Network plug.

Bray Wyatt interrupts the plug, wondering where we go when we die.

A amn of science thinks we just go to the ground. A man of faith believes in something us. And people like “us” we don’t die. This is our hell. Bray doesn’t fear him anymore. It’s time for him to go home. Find Bray Wyatt.

Dean Ambrose is headed to the ring, next.

Sheamus is returning to WWE.

We know, because we see a video about him.

This Thursday night on Smackdown. Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns will have a face to face. Didn’t they already do that?

Curtis Axel points at the Wrestlemania sign. This is his moment, and he wants to continue the movement at #Axelmania.

Dean Ambrose Vs Axel, now.

Ambrose wins with Dirty Deeds.

Now Dean has the mic, he wants Bad News Barrett. He can deny his title match all he wants, but this mug will go up on the wall of champions. And he will not stop, until he gets it.

Bad News Barrett has some breaking news, courtesy of BNZ. He’s still not getting the title shot.

Our main event is up now, Reigns and Bryan Vs Rollins, Big Show, Kane, J & J Security.

Daniel and Roman win when Roman gave Daniel a blind tag and speared Mercury. The team of Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan come out to fight Rollins, Kane, and Big Show. All six men fight to the back, which leaves Bryan and Reigns alone with Mercury and Noble.

After the match, Daniel feels Roman wasn’t there for him, so Reigns gives him a spear. Steph and HHH like this dissention, and we end the show here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Just a bad show, very disappointing, because last week’s Raw was entertaining, but tonight, it was boring. I am just not sure where they are going heading into Wrestlemania. This Wednesday night, NXT Takeover: Rivals will feature Kevin Owens Vs Sami Zayn for the NXT World Title. I can’t wait.

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

Impact Wrestling 2/6/14….Lockdown

Tonight, a free PPV, presented by TNA.  Tonight, every match is contested inside 6 sides of steel.  Team Angle Vs Team BDC.  Also The Hardys face The Revolution for the Tag Team Titles.  We will also see Havok Vs Awesome Kong.

Lockdown is now.

Josh Matthews and Taz welcome us to the show, and our first match are The Hardys Vs The Revolution.

The Revolution retain their titles when Koya and Sanada interfered, Koya took Matt out of the mix, and Sanada sprayed blue mist into Jeff’s eyes.  Storm hits a Last Call Superkick.

After the match, Koya took Matt down with a Powerbomb through the table.  Manik missed a table splash, and Jeff fought The Revolution, but Jeff was straddled on the cage, and Storm nailed Hardy in the head with a cowbell rope, and Jeff’s head hits the steel steps.

The most brutal bump and is being tended to by EMTs.

Jeff could have broken his neck, thanks goodness he didn’t, but that was such a sick bump.

Team BDC is talking strategy.  MVP talks about making Kurt an offer “he can’t refuse”

Lethal Lockdown match is tonight.

Moments ago, Jeff Hardy took a sick bump, getting his head blasted by a cowbell rope, and his head hit the steel step.

Jeff was helped to the back.

Team BDC is in the ring.

This structure MVP said is dangerous.  It’s more dangerous when BDC is involved.  We just saw what happened to Jeff Hardy.  Bad things are going to happen if you cross BDC.

Eric Young tells Bobby Roode he is going to make him bleed.

Bad things can happen, MVP.  He calls Kurt Angle to come out and talk, so they can have a “conversation”.

Kurt comes out with Austin Aries and Gunner.

Kurt just saw what happened to Jeff, and they are not in a good mood.  Gunner, you have a promising career.  Don’t listen to these idiots.  And he can be a future World Champion.  So don’t be stupid, and be a redneck, make the wise choice.  Aries is the most selfish person, so we know he is all about that briefcase, so he can’t be trusted.  Kurt, he knows his medical record, he knows his knees are hanging by a thread.  So do the right thing, give in, and walk away.

Kurt isn’t impressed by this, he says they will kick their asses.  They won’t even wait, and they enter the ring, all fighting.

BDC takes out Gunner’s arm by hitting the cage with a chair.

First Hardy, and now Gunner.  Can he compete tonight?

Kong Vs Havok video is playing now.

Havok Vs Kong is next.

Moments ago, BDC take out Gunner.  Team Angle is down 2 members.

Gunner is being checked on by the doctor.  He doesn’t think Gunner can go, but Gunner insists he will go.  Aries isn’t so sure, when Kurt checks with Lashley one last time.

Havok Vs Kong, now.

Kong wins with a splash.  We saw both women use chokeslams.  Kong wins the first battle, and I have a feeling we will see more.

Roode Vs Young video is now being shown.

Roode Vs Young is next.

2 weeks ago, we see Velvet Sky tell Angelina Love she was just fired.  Angelina gives Velvet a hug, but she seems happy Velvet is fired.

The camera guy tells Lashley Kurt Angle is looking for him, and Bobby isn’t hard to find.

Eric Young Vs Bobby Roode is up now.

Roode wins the match with a Roode Bomb.  EY bled through this match, as Bobby told him.

Kurt approaches Lashley.  Kurt wants Bobby to fight with him, so in the future they can fight each other, by their terms.  Because as long as Bobby is champion, MVP will run him.  Lashley isn’t interested, but Kurt shoves him at the wall, telling him they need each other.

Josh and Taz review what just took place.

Impact Top 5 list has EC3 at number 5.  Lo- Ki at number 4.  Eric Young at number 3.  MVP at number 2, and Bobby Roode at number 1.

Rockstar Spud and Mandrews Vs Tyrus, 2-on-1 Handicap match is now.

EC3 has the clippers.

Tyrus wins the match, with a chokeslam on Spud, after EC3 took out Mandrews out of the cage.

EC3 says it’s cutting time, and JB cut the cord there.

Lethal Lockdown is up next, Team Angle Vs Team BDC.

Earlier tonight, James Storm lays out Jeff Hardy with Jeff hitting his head on the steel steps.

During the break, Bobby Roode talks about the history he has with Eric Young.  15 long years of friendship, and in one split second, it was gone when Eric took his championship away from him.  He will never forget that, he will never forgive.  He said he would make EY bleed, and he told him he was his brother.  But now, it’s over.  It’s time for the “It Factor” to get his title back.

Earlier tonight, Robbie E. challenged Brooke a race.  Spin your head around a bat, run into the cage, chase out of the cage, and cross the finish line.

Brooke won the challenge, and took a selfie of Robbie.

Lethal Lockdown video is now showing.

Kenny King Vs Gunner kicks things off.

Lo-Ki is in the ring now, making it a 2 on 1 advantage of Team BDC.

Austin Aries is in now evening the odds 2-2.

Joe is in now, giving us a 3-2 advantage of Team BDC.

Kurt Angle is out now.

MVP is out for his team, giving us a 4-3 advantage for Team BDC.

Josh Matthews is making it seem like Lethal Lockdown begins, but I am not so sure, yet.

The 4th member of Team Angle is….

Lashley

NOW Lethal Lockdown has begun.

Team Angle wins when Lashley hits a spear, and everyone else had submission moves, blocking the other members of BDC.

The show ends with Team Angle standing tall.

Next week on Impact, where does Lashley and Angle stand?  And what does it mean for the Beat Down Clan?

Find out, next week on Impact Wrestling.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

5 feuds here tonight, which means stories were told.  A formula for a successful wrestling program.  My only complaint is for a big wrestling show like this, a free PPV basically, they need to treat this like a “Clash of the Champions” from NWA/WCW days.  2 and a half hours is perfect.  This way, you can add 1 or 2 matches, and give you a PPV feel.  I also wish they were live too, but we need to make this feel special.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Let’s hope Jeff Hardy will be back soon, we know it won’t be anytime soon, but that was a nasty and dangerous fall he took.

I will talk to you on Monday.

WWE Thursday Night Smackdown 2/5/15…Daniel Bryan And Roman Reigns Square Off On MizTV

Footage from this past Monday is shown, when HHH shocked the world, made Roman Reigns accept the challenge of Daniel Bryan, with his Wrestlemania spot on the line.

We are 52 days from Wrestlemania, in Colorado Springs.

Miz TV kicks the show off.

Byron Saxton, Michael Cole, and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome to the show.

Miz orders Damien Mizdow to stay seated, as Miz does the show.

The crowd chants for Mizdow, and Miz tells us we have him, sitting down and shutting up like an assistant, so shut up while Miz is talking.

His two guests are the two men facing each other at Fastlane.  Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns make their way to the ring.

Reigns gives Miz a Superman punch immediately.

Daniel thinks he is going to slide in and take Reigns position, right?  The reality is he went through 29 men to get in this position.  And he’s willing to go through one more man, and go on to Wrestlemania.  Win the World Heavyweight Championship.  You want to know how?  He’s going beat Daniel at Fastlane.  But he sees the eyes of Daniel, and knows they both want to do it right here, right now.

Daniel and Roman move the chairs from the ringside, but here comes Seth Rollins.

Seth doesn’t want to be a party pooper, but it’s what he does best.  He has a bone to pick with both of them.  Daniel knows Seth was on his way to beating him, and head to Wrestlemania.

The reason why he didn’t, Roman blocked his way by spearing him, and Daniel pinned Rollins.

Reigns is afraid of Rollins, and he knows that.  He understands because of his accomplishments..  Rollins holds the future with the MITB briefcase.

Daniel will have to answer to them, as he faces J & H Security, and Seth Rollins.

Dolph Ziggler and Ryback are teaming up, next.

Renee Young is with The Miz.

Miz said what we saw was a failed attempt at publicity.  Roman Reigns doesn’t belong in the main event of Wrestlemania.  And he will prove it, tonight.  Going one on one with Roman Reigns.

Ziggler and Ryback Vs Gold and Stardust, now.

Ryback and Ziggler win with Shellshock on Goldust, after Goldust called Stardust “Cody”, Stardust bailed on his brother.

Switching gears, WWE celebrates Black History Month.  They honor Ernie “The Big Cat” Ladd.

Tonight, 3-on-1 Handicap match with Daniel Bryan Vs J & J Security and Seth Rollins.

Dean Ambrose Vs Curtis Axel, next.

Curtis Axel tells us again, he wasn’t officially eliminated from Royal Rumble.  He should be main eventing Wrestlemania.  So he wants us to join the movement, #AxelMania.

Ambrose comes out, now.

Ambrose wins with Dirty Deeds.

Bad News Barrett shows up, with BNZ….Bad News Zone.  Ambrose is too much of a lunatic to be getting an Intercontinental Title match.

Reigns Vs Miz is tonight.

“The New and Improved” Fandango will face “The New and Deranged” Adam Rose.  Loser gets a pink slip.

Fandango shows us he is new and improved, by winning with his Last Dance leg drop.  Adam seemed to have an issue with his abused Rosebuds throughout the match, especially when they didn’t catch him.

Whatever.

Reigns Vs The Miz is up next.

The Miz is on the mic, telling Roman to get out here and face a man who did main event Wrestlemania.

Here we go.

Reigns pins The Miz with a spear.

Tonight, Daniel Bryan faces J & J Security and Seth Rollins.

But first, here comes Rusev and Lana.

Rusev Vs Erick Rowan, now.

Rusev hits the Accolade, making Rowan tap out.

Footage from this past Monday night, when The Bellas took out Paige.

Renee Young is with Paige.

Paige does not get embarrassed easily, but this past Monday night, she was.  She gets it, she is pasty white, she is not a typical diva.  She isn’t a cookie cutter like The Bella Twins are, and in 2 weeks, she is coming for the Divas Title.

It’s Paige Vs Alicia Fox, now.

Paige wins with a PTO.

Earlier this week, Naomi and Jey Uso had a double date with Natalya and Tyson Kidd.

Cesaro went with them.

The tables go flying, and Cesaro nails a punch on Jey Uso.

I don’t think they will be invited back to the restaurant.

3 on 1 Handicap match with Daniel Bryan facing J & J Security and Seth Rollins.

Message from Bray Wyatt.

They say a man is defined by his own actions.  But Bray is not a man, he is a mind, and a spirit.  What is it that makes you think you are immune to Wyatt?  Maybe you think your sins don’t count.  Honor is ruined by pride, and the devil is now knocking at your door.

Knock, Knock.

He just wants you to come home.  Just let him, just let him in.  Let me in.

Main event time, Daniel Bryan Vs J & J Security and Seth Rollins.

Daniel Bryan wins the match with a Yes Lock, making Joey Mercury tap out to the Yes Lock.

But after the match, Kane comes back, unharmed, I might add attacks Bryan in the back and The Authority hits a beating on Bryan.

Rollins hits a Curbstomp on Bryan, and the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

If you missed this show, you didn’t miss much and that is sad to me.  Again, THIS is Road to Wrestlemania, but it hit a stall until Fastlane is up, which makes no sense to me.  Why wasn’t John Cena on this show, which moved to a new night?  Why is Seth Rollins losing now, when he performed so well at Royal Rumble, and is dubbed “The Future”?

I have always hated 3-on-1 Handicap matches, never have.  It never makes anyone look good, not even for the one man.

And how about that “legendary” feud with Daniel Vs Kane?  It never ends.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Let me know, and I will talk to you Monday.

WWE NXT 2/4/15…The Road To Takeover Continues

We are in Full Sail University, in Orlando, Florida.  One week away from NXT Takeover.  Here is Colin Cassidy and Enzo Amore to kick the show off.  They are not SAWFT!!

Now we have Carmella, I guess she is with Cassidy and Amore.

She has a message for her opponent Emma.  She is going to dance when she beats Emma.  How ya doing?

Here comes Emma.

Carmella wins with a leg submission, making a more, aggressive Emma tap out.

2 Number One Contender tournament matches.  Adrian Neville Vs Baron Corbin and Finn Balor Vs Hideo Itami.

Neville Vs Corbin is next.

Neville wins with a Red Arrow, and some help from Bull Dempsey, who clubbed Baron from behind.  This is the first loss by Corbin in NXT.

Neville moves on to next week’s Takeover and faces with Balor or Itami.

Bayley Vs Becky Lynch is next.

Sami Zayn talks earlier this week about his upcoming match with Kevin Owens next week.

Next week, Corbin Vs Dempsey is a No DQ match.

Bayley Vs Lynch is up now.

Bayley wins the match with a Bayley to Belly.  Next Wednesday, we have a Fatal 4-Way for the Divas Title.

After the match, Sasha and Becky have a bit of a disagreement, with Charlotte coming out to stare down all 3 Divas.

Rich Brennen, Corey Graves, and Alex Riley welcome us to the show.

Kevin Owens shares his thoughts earlier this week.

Finn Balor Vs Hideo Itami is up next.

Next week, Blake and Murphy put their newly won Tag Team Titles against Lucha Dragons.

Devin Taylor wants to know Tyler Breeze’s thoughts after losing last week.

Tyler will watch this tournament rather closely.  This interview is done.

Adrian Neville joins the guys, as we get our main event, Itami Vs Balor.

Finn Balor defeats Itami with a Coup De Gras, pinning Itami.  Next week, at Takeover, it will be Adrian Neville Vs Finn Balor to determine the Number One Contender.

Itami teased the GTS, which was amazing, and at this point with CM Punk, they might as well let Itami use it, since he first did the move.  After the match, Itami and Balor shook hands.  Adrian Neville is up on the ramp, staring down Balor.  Neville is applauding Balor’s victory.  Now the two men shake hands, and the stage is set for next week.

Video hyping up Owens Vs Zayn closes the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I loved the setup tonight for next week.  The video at the end was a nice touch, as was the 2 Semi-Finals.  WWE would be wise to showcase these talents next week on Raw, and truly put them over, unlike last time when Charlotte, the NXT Divas Champion lost in her WWE debut match.

This show has the makings of a classic, and I will be here, live at 8:00 next week.

What were your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me, Owens Vs Zayn is next week.

WWE Monday Night Raw 2/2/15….Announcement That Shakes Foundation To Its Core

It’s Monday night, and that can mean we have Raw.  Live from the Pepsi Center, in Denver, Colorado.

The Authority kicks the show off, and what Raw would we have that wouldn’t have The Authority kick off the show?

Stephanie has heel heat, and talks about The Patriots winning the Super Bowl.  Controversies take place, even at the Super Bowl.

They listen to us, and understand there have been some outrage at what took place at Royal Rumble.  And there are here to do something about it.

Footage of The Royal Rumble, when The Rock came out to help his cousin, Roman Reigns win the Rumble, and fight off The Authority.

HHH wants to deal with the controversy, head on.  Big Show and Kane were wrong with how they dealt with losing, because like the Seahawks, they were unsportsmanlike.

But his big issue is with The Rock.  He had no business interfering.  He’s not a WWE superstar any longer.  He will go on and become Hollywood’s biggest box office attraction.  But he has no business interfering.  HHH blames himself for allowing people to come in, and guys like Sting did the very thing.  Which is why he is calling out Sting at Fastlane, and he promises HHH will resolve their issue.

Crowd chants for Sting, and Stephanie tells them that they will get him  at Fastlane, available on WWE Network, for just $9.99.

This goes back to Roman Reigns.  He won Royal Rumble, with help from The Rock.  And the question is without Rock’s help, would he have still won?  So he is the winner officially, but the question is should he go on to Wrestlemania and face Brock Lesnar?

Enter Roman Reigns.

Roman asks that since he won the Royal Rumble match, and earned the right to face the WWE World Champion, but he is going to take that away from him?  Hell no.

HHH seems a bit upset about this, with Stephanie standing in between them.

Steph brings up Roman’s legacy last week, his Samoan heritage, nobody could understand that more than Stephanie.  So isn’t it ironic that the family he is trying to impress is the very reason why he shouldn’t go to Wrestlemania?

Enter Daniel Bryan.

Stephanie mocks Daniel’s chant there.

Daniel bringing up a controversy?  How about WWE stripping Daniel of his title, and never giving him his rematch?

So if things are wide open, he wants to throw his hat in this match, one more time.

HHH brings up Daniel should have been stripped of the title, since he couldn’t defend his title in a certain amount of time.  But he does deserve the title rematch, and they could have given it to him right away, but Daniel got cocky a bit and threw his name in the Rumble match, something he had no business doing.

Enter Seth Rollins, and we go to a commercial break.

We are back live on Raw, with Seth Rollins speaking.

If he’s hearing what he think he is hearing, this is ridiculous.  Brock Lesnar would eat Daniel alive.  He didn’t get his rematch?  Big deal, this is where the big boys play.

And he doesn’t know why Reigns thinks he deserves a title shot, without The Rock’s help, he wouldn’t have won the Rumble.

If anyone deserves a title shot, it’s Reigns.  He stole the show at the Triple Threat title match, and broke Brock Lesnar’s ribs.

Stephanie and HHH have a plan.

Daniel Bryan Vs Seth Rollins tonight.  The winner faces Roman Reigns at Fastlane, and the winner of that match goes on to main event Wrestlemania.

HHH talks about Reigns may not like this, but deal with it.

Stephanie tells Reigns he has a chance to prove to himself, do this for his family.

Daniel tells Reigns that Daniel will defeat Rollins tonight and the two men tear the roof off at Fast Lane.

Rollins tells Reigns if he doesn’t accept this, it’s really because Reigns doesn’t even want to face Rollins, and knows Seth will beat him.  He has no choice but to accept it.

It’s up to Reigns, will he do it or not?

Screw it, Reigns has been fighting the odds all along, so he will beat Daniel.  He will beat Rollins.  He will prove he deserves to be at Wrestlemania.

It’s official, and boy have the made Reigns look like a chump here.

Oh but wait, Reigns has a match next, against Big Show.

Oh boy.

And, with some help from Seth Rollins, Big Show hits a chokeslam, and Big Show pins Reigns.

Unbelievable.

HHH and Steph are so proud of them to manipulate this whole system.  Big Show took care of Roman, Seth needs to take care of Daniel tonight.  Seth needs to take care of Roman at Fastlane, and he is on to Wrestlemania.

Now he just needs to take care of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s podcast tonight.  Steph asked him how he will handle that, and HHH isn’t worried.  He can manipulate Austin, just like he did with the wrestlers.

Tonight, immediately after Raw, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin will have his podcast, with his guest as HHH.

Curtis Axel comes out, and says he was never eliminated at the Royal Rumble, and he wants justice.  He points to the Wrestlemania sign, and says he wants Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania.

Here comes Dean Ambrose, our match is set.

Actually, he just threw him over the top rope.  So Axel is eliminated.

Ambrose has something to say.

After the Rumble, he walked to WWE headquarters, and looked around at the walls, and found pictures of all the former champions.

2 weeks ago, Ambrose pinned Bad News Barrett, so he is in line for a IC Title match.  Fasten your seat belt, we are on the road to Fastlane.

Axel attacks Ambrose, but Dean fights back and hits Dirty Deeds.

Michael Cole, Booker T, and JBL welcome us to the show, celebrating Black History Month.  Celebrating Ernie “The Big Cat” Ladd.

Tonight, Daniel Bryan faces Seth Rollins.  Winner faces Roman Reigns at Fast Lane.

The Ascension are ready to face Gold and Stardust, again.

Fall of Man, with Viktor pinning Goldust.

Stardust is livid, telling Goldust he needs to get his head on straight.

Up next, Cena welcomes back Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan.

Stardust is flipping out, with Goldust asking him what happened.  Then he said Cody and Stardust tells him to never call him by that name again, and walks away.

John Cena comes out now.

The crowd boos him, and cheers him, with Cena smiling.

Cena wouldn’t miss this show for anything.  He talks about “Stone Cold’s podcast, immediately after WWE Monday Night Raw.  Austin isn’t afraid of HHH, so he will ask questions the whole world wants to know.  And he wants to know if HHH will skate around those tough questions.  HHH made it clear this past week on Smackdown, calling Cena the “past of WWE”.  And HHH doesn’t want him near this business.

See, the fans will tell Cena to his face that he sucks, and Cena respects that.  But HHH will do business with Cena, but he knows deep down HHH will never like him.  But he also knows Cena will never be fired, because there are TV stations to answer to.  But The Authority almost made Cena give up.  But something that happened 2 weeks ago is the very definition of why he does what he does.

We see Sting showing up, and Cena rolled Rollins up, to bring back Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback.

Cena owes Sting, because now we get to officially bring back Erick Rowan, Ryback, and Dolph Ziggler.

Here they come.

These three men are proof The Authority can be beat.  And if they can be beat, then so can Rusev.  He will beat him at Fast Lane.

Stephanie interrupts them again.

Ziggler speaks out about this, and asks Steph is she is tired of being shown that she is wrong, with these three men winning.

Stephanie makes this crystal clear, the three men haven’t won anything, Cena and Sting have fought for them.  But tonight, that changes.

Ziggler will face Bray Wyatt.  Rowan will face Rusev, and Ryback faces Luke Harper, next.

Ryback picks up the win with a Meathook Clothesline.

Crowd wants to feed Ryback more, it seems.

Tonight, Ziggler Vs Wyatt.

Jimmy Uso will face Cesaro, now.

Cesaro wins with an European Uppercut, after Jimmy tried a splash.

The challengers made a statement here.

WWE Network is free in February for new subscribers.

Tonight, Seth Rollins Vs Daniel Bryan with the winner facing Roman Reigns, at Fast Lane.

We are in catering, Damien Mizdow is getting some food…..for The Miz.  Some stagehand wants Mizdow’s autograph.  The Miz tears it up.

We both know how this plays out.  A real star throws a bone with a nobody.  He was a joke before The Miz made him a Tag team champion, and now he is throwing it away because of his ego.  He is the worst stunt double he has ever seen.  No more, because he is fired.

The Miz is a gracious man, he will make him a personal assistant.  But he doesn’t seem to like that role.  He is facing Sin Cara, but Mizdow still mocks him.  Mizdow is his personal assistant, go fetch him his strawberries.

Cena is backstage, and he is confronted by Rowan.  His entire life, he has been treated like an outcast, but for the first time, he fought for him.  Rowan thanks Cena.  And tonight, he wants to do a favor for Cena when he takes on Rusev.

Cena told him Rusev is a machine, so be on his game.  Rowan shakes Cena’s hand.

Ziggler Vs Wyatt, now.

Bray wins the match with Sister Abigail.  What a phenomenal match between these two.  They are building something for Wyatt here.

Earlier tonight, HHH set the tone with Daniel Bryan Vs Seth Rollins.  Winner moves on to Fastlane to face Reigns, and the winner faces Lesnar at Wrestlemania.

The Authority are in the back, with Rollins happy about the plan working tonight.

Stephanie assures Rollins that they never had any intention of Daniel Bryan getting his title match at Mania.

HHH talks about Randy Orton being paranoid when they gave him opportunities.  Rollins tells them he isn’t Orton.  Tonight, he will punch his ticket to Fast Lane, and stomp out The Yes Movement, once and for all.

WWE Divas Championship is on the line at Fastlane.  Paige Vs Nikki Bella.

With The Bella Twins doing commentary, Paige will face Alicia Fox.

Paige wins with a roll up, surprising Alicia Fox.  But Alicia attacks Paige, and the Bellas are giving Paige some tan spray to give her some color.

At Fastlane, HHH will call out Sting.  Will he show up?

Tonight, Rollins Vs Bryan with winner facing Reigns at Fastlane.

The Miz is going to be on the show “Sirens” tomorrow night at 10:30 on USA Network.  We see footage from The Miz being on the show.

The Miz Vs Sin Cara is up now.

The fans love Mizdow, so Miz sees this, is distracted and Sin Cara rolls him up for the win.

Miz tells Mizdow to stay in his spot.

Bray Wyatt interrupts, and says he has been called many different names.  Seducer, Destroyer.  But you?  You can call him Bray.  He has been watching him, and he no longer fears him.  He wants to be the dark figure now.  He knows he is listening, so find him.

No Lana promo, so we are set for Rusev Vs Erick Rowan, now.

The match never takes place, because Rusev crush.  He hits The Accolade, when the ref is telling to break it.

Lana takes the mic.

Lana wants to invite us to a movie premiere.  it’s Oscar season, and this film doesn’t show a happy ending.  We will see John Cena getting crushed, and anyone else who stands against Rusev.

Video on Rusev is being shown now.

The Russian flag is caught on the rope there, and Rusev is irate over this.  Did John Cena have something to do with it?

Reigns is backstage.  He is confronted by Daniel Bryan.

Reigns tells Daniel Seth is getting what is coming to him.  Reigns doesn’t get mad, he gets even.

Daniel tells him he won’t face him at Fastlane.  Reigns tells Daniel he will head to Wrestlemania, and face Lesnar, no matter what it takes.  That’s not a threat, it’s a promise.  Now get the hell out of his room.

Daniel Bryan Vs Seth Rollins is now.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, we will see Miz TV with Miz having Roman Reigns and his Fastlane opponent.

Daniel Bryan won, hitting the high knee, after Reigns evened the odds a bit.  He took care of Big Show, who was out for support.  He gave Rollins a Superman Punch too, celebrating in the ring.

HHH was watching this backstage.  Renee Young’s inly appearance of the night wanted words with HHH.  Hunter said anything he says about Daniel’s win will be said at Stone Cold’s podcast.

Cole interviewed Daniel.  Bryan thanks the fans for supporting him, they are the reason he is here.  So he moves on to Fastlane, to face Reigns, and then go on to Wrestlemania, to become the new WWE World Champion.

Yes!!

Yes!!

Yes!!

Stone Cold’s Podcast is next.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The last 2 hours was much better than a slow first hour.  Still confused why they made Reigns look so bad though.  He won the Rumble, so why is he giving up that chance to main event Wrestlemania, to wrestle at Fastlane.  He loses everything, right?

Okay, Wrestlemania will still be Reigns Vs Lesnar.  I can’t think they will do a triple threat match here.  It’s time to truly put Reigns over the next few weeks.

They certainly have a direction for Bray Wyatt now, and he will face The Undertaker.  I have to think Bray should have been the one in 21-1 last year, and not Brock.  Remember, Taker was the one who pinned Hulk Hogan after his first year in WWE.  So will history repeat itself?

The Road to Fastlane continues this Thursday night.

What were your thoughts?  Send them to me here.

Impact Wrestling 1/30/15…Monster’s Ball

Last week on Impact, MVP and Bobby Lashley had a street fight, with The Beat Down Clan helping out MVP.  Bobby Roode and Kurt Angle saved Lashley, but Roode and Lashley had a stare down, for the TNA World Title.

Also tonight, Monster’s Ball, with Abyss Vs Jeff Hardy.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Bobby Roode kicks the show off, still holding the World Title.

Josh Matthews and Taz are in the studio, calling the action.

What Bobby has in his hand, unfortunately does not belong to Roode.  But this championship title means more to Bobby than life itself.  Professional Wrestling is Bobby Roode’s life.  It’s how he supports his family, and this championship represents everything.  But on January 7th, it was taken away from him, by his best friend.  EY, he and Roode were like brother, and so help Roode, he won’t quit until he spills EY’s blood.

But as for the Championship belt, there are only two men that belong in this conversation, and that’s Roode and Lashley.  Roode has something Lashley wants, so come on out and they can settle this, like men.

Enter Bobby Lashley.

This is Lashley, but this was Roode’s.  He doesn’t hold Lashley responsible for any of this.  It was MVP, Eric Young, and their goons.  But Lashley was man enough to take this, and Bobby respects him for it.  The two have had some great matches.  This World Heavyweight Championship belongs to Lashley, and he will give it back.  But it won’t be easy, because Roode is owed a rematch, and he wants his rematch tonight.

Lashley accepts, and Roode wants the match now.

Enter Austin Aries.

Austin always finds himself in this options.  First, it was option C, he had the chance to make people look at the X-Division Title differently.  And now he has the briefcase, and he wants that chance, and no better place than New York City.

Does he take the title shot in his street clothes, right now?  Or does he take a seat, eat some vegan popcorn, and watch the two beat the hell out of each other, then cash in?

Here comes MVP.

MVP call them dumb, dumber, and dumbest.

Aries doesn’t control anything.  And Roode is always crying about losing, how about Roode join BDC, and he can blame them?

And for Lashley, that title isn’t his.  The title belongs to BDC.  They beat the hell out of Lashley last week, but he knows Bobby has a soft side.  So how about you throw these two chumps over tonight, and the two men can settle it.

Lashley tells Austin he can keep the briefcase for another time.  If MVP wants a title shot, Roode wants a title shot, Aries wants a title shot, he will put the title up in a Fatal 4-Way.

Tonight, Jeff Hardy Vs Abyss in a Monster’s Ball match.

But next, Knockout Title is on the line in a Triple Threat match, with Taryn Terrell Vs Madison Rayne Vs Gail Kim.

Next week is Lockdown, on Destination America.  Kurt Angle is going to assemble his team for Lethal Lockdown, and by tonight, we will find out who is on Team Angle.

Triple Threat for the Knockout Title is now.

Taryn wins the match, and retains her title with a cutter, pinning Madison Rayne.

So far, three matches are set next week for Lockdown, with Team Angle Vs Team BDC in a Lethal Lockdown match.  Also, Awesome Kong Vs Havoc.  And for the Tag Team Titles, The Hardys Vs The Revolution.

Magnus is outside, heading to a bar with the cameraman, because he wants to talk things out with Bram, like 2 men.

Tommy Dreamer has entered the building.

Earlier today, Rockstar Spud and his new friend are sight-seeing in “Washington D.C.”.  They have a match tonight with EC3 and Tyrus.  They are trying to look for the “White House”.

Tommy Dreamer is in the ring.

For 25 years, we have watched him grow as a wrestler, and a performer.  He has never lied to them, and before things get messy behind the scenes, he wants Eric Young to come out.

The first person to shake Tommy’s hand when he came to the company was EY.  The second person was Bobby Roode.  They have closed bars together, shared hotel rooms, and EY is making a big mistake.

Before EY became a champion, he was a joke yet these fans loved him.  One thing Tommy knows are friends turning their backs on him, so don’t turn your back on your friends, and don’t burn the bridge from the fans.

Tommy is a good guy, but look at where that got Tommy.  He is just a fat guy.  You talk about burning a bridge?  He wants to blow the whole thing up.

Eric used to make a mistake, but now Eric will never make a mistake again.

Tommy reminds EY that Roode never gave him a title shot, did EY ever ask him?  No.

EY quickly gave Dreamer a Piledriver, and takes out the timekeeper, throws a chair in the ring.  But Roode cuts him off.

The Hardys tells us they are ready next week.  They have reunited to become Tag Team Champions, and that opportunity comes inside a steel cage.

Jeff and Abyss have a long history, and tonight this ball gets bigger.  He has invited many friends to come to the party.  Barb wire, chair, tables.

Abyss, it’s over.

Magnus meets Bram in a bar.

Kurt Angle is asking Gunner to be a part of Team Angle, but questions if he has it in him to be that soldier.  He slaps Gunner, but Gunner tells him he can.

Bram is still angry about last week, but Magnus tells Bram a part of the reason why he doesn’t have championships is because of his temper.  He has the briefcase, and wants him to be his partner.  Magnus tells Bram this is more about titles, more about money, this is about providing for his new family and his little boy.

Bram settles down, and is good with what Magnus said, and he tells him they will settle this.  He tells Magnus there is a shorter exit, but it’s a trap.  Bram takes him out with a cue ball in the back of the head, and walks away.

Monster’s Ball is taking place now, Jeff Hardy Vs Abyss.

Jeff Hardy wins in a wild brawl.  A little Swanton Bomb on a thumbtacks, after The Revolution interfered.  But Matt and The Wolves come out to aid Jeff, and Hardy wins.

Storm is irate at Abyss.

Kurt is still trying to assemble his team for next week’s Lethal Lockdown.  Team Angle Vs Team BDC.

Fatal 4-Way for the World Title is tonight.

We hear from Jeff Hardy.

This is a big match that he won.  Matt puts over Jeff as someone who is the most extreme wrestler, and he deserved the win.

Josh Matthews rewind what took place earlier tonight, with a Fatal 4-Way being set up.  Roode Vs MVP Vs Aries Vs Lashley.

Aries brings up he appreciates the fight Lashley has, and he might have made the mistake, with Aries being the ultimate opportunist.  And while he might lose tonight, he still might win.

Mandrews and Rockstar Spud Vs EC3 and Tyrus is now.

EC3 is not dressed, so his match is denied.  But their opponents are The Bromans.

Shooting Star Press, Mandrews and Spud pick up the upset win.

But Tyrus is punishing them, with EC3 goating them on.  EC3 tells Spud he will never give him the pleasure of facing him, but he will give him a match next week, against Tyrus.

Actually, let’s make this a Handicap match, with Mandrews and Spud Vs Tyrus.

Fatal 4-Way for the World Title is next.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw….EC3 telling Spud and Mandrews next week, it will be Spud and Mandrews Vs Tyrus.

Spud is not a loser, and he will get his hands on Ethan.

Lockdown is set next week.

Lashley Vs Roode Vs Aries Vs MVP, for the World Title is now.

Lashley retains his title with a spear, pinning Aries.

BDC comes out, but Angle and Gunner back them up.  Kurt is going to announce his team, next.

Moments ago, Lashley retained his title.  BDC come out and try to lay out Lashley, but Kurt and Gunner stop them.

We come back, and see Lashley, Roode, Aries, Gunner, and Angle.

Roode challenges Eric Young to Lockdown, next week, inside 6 sides of steel.  He will make EY pay, but most of all, he will make him bleed.

So this is a First Blood match.

Kurt brings up the numbers will be equal next week, and they will go to war.

Aries has the mic.

Austin knows 2 things.  1.  He knows there isn’t a person on BDC that wants Aries on his team.  2.  There isn’t a person in the crowd that wants to see Austin not be on Team Angle.

Kurt tells Austin he is in, but now he needs one more man.

He asks Lashley to be a part of Team Angle.

Lashley tells MVP he will never be teaming with him, and he doesn’t want to team with Kurt.

“The Lone Wolf” Lashley, it seems.  With Impact going off the air.

Next week, it’s Lockdown.  Who is the 4th man on Team Angle?  Tune in next week.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A much better episode tonight than last week, and they are setting up a big show.  One thing about Destination America is they are growing, and so is Impact with the ratings.  But bigger ratings does not mean show was good.  Last week was awful, so hopefully they learn from this, because whether this is fair or not, Impact has to be good every week.

Team Angle Vs Team BDC is set.  We will also see Kong Vs Havoc for the first time, and we should have had a video of that tonight.

Good Knockout Title match, very good World Title match, not to mention a crazy brawl with Hardy and Abyss.

I also loved to see Bram and Magnus split up.  Now is the time to use Bram, and with the European Tour kicking off this week, Magnus will be a hero when he comes back.

A very good show tonight, do you agree?  Send me your thoughts.

WWE Thursday Night Smackdown 1/29/15…Super Smackdown Live

Tonight, The Road to Wrestlemania begins, after Raw was cancelled to Mother Nature, we are live in Hartford, Connecticut.

The blue brand starts here.

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

Tonight, The Big Show faces Roman Reigns.  We will also see Daniel Bryan Vs Kane, in a Casket Match.

Eden Stiles welcome us to the show, HHH.

Behold the King of Kings….On your knees punk.

HHH welcomes us to Monday Night Raw.  Oh wait, that was a joke.  After all, the weatherman told them they must cancel Monday Night Raw.

For the first time, Raw was at WWE Studios.  You tell them they can’t do it, and they can.  You tell them they can’t get 1 million subscribers to WWE Network?  This week, they reached the 1 million mark, and he has two words for us….Thank you.

And they were told they can’t have Raw in Hartford, so they bring Smackdown to Hartford.

Which brings us to last Sunday.  It seems there was controversy with the Royal Rumble.  But come to think of it, other sports has controversy too.  It seems Roger Goodell doesn’t have enough balls.

NFL, some guys like their balls hard, some guys like their balls soft.  According to Tom Brady, some don’t even like balls.

That’s one thing HHH hasn’t had an issue with, balls.  And unlike Roger Goodell, who does nothing, HHH will deal with the problems head on, such as on February 22nd, he has a problem with a man called Sting.  He will deal with him, head on.

But there were other controversies, not with the WWE World Title match itself.  He is referring to possible the best World Title match, which proved to the world, Seth Rollins is the future.  The match proved to the world was John Cena is the past.  And Brock Lesnar proved to the world that he is a beast.

But he has a problem with the Royal Rumble match itself.  People were so upset that people couldn’t stop talking about it.  And he had an issue with something that happened.

We see footage of Reigns winning the Rumble, with some help from The Rock.

This coming Monday, he is going to fix that problem, and he will make an announcement that will shake the foundation to its core.

Enter Roman Reigns.

Hunter keeps talking about controversies, Roman doesn’t see it.  He won the Royal Rumble and that means he is going to Wrestlemania.

Indeed, HHH said Reigns did win that match, but let’s see if he wins this one.

The Big Show Vs Reigns, now.

Reigns win with a spear.  The fans truly did not like Reigns again, booing almost every move, until Reigns hits the spear.

A big win, heading into this coming Monday.

Vince McMahon, live, via satellite telling us to oder WWE Network.  It’s free for the month of February for new subscribers.

We see a casket, tonight it’s Daniel Bryan Vs Kane in a Casket Match.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is the new WWE Hall of Famer, and we get the induction video.

Seth Rollins shows up, with a smile.

He lost this Sunday, but he told us just how good he is.

Seth was 1 second away from pinning John Cena, and becoming WWE World Champion, and he broke Brock Lesnar’s ribs.

John Cena can’t say that, neither can The Undertaker.  But even with the loss, he has the future, as he raises the MITB briefcase, he has his future in good hands.

So he challenges anyone in the back to answer his open challenge.

Feed Me More!!

Ryback shows up, but J & J Security take him out, but here comes Erick Rowan to help out.

Rollins and & & J Security beat down Rowan and Ryback but Dolph Ziggler helps them both out.

Kane is up on the screen, describing the pain and suffering he is going to give Daniel, and end his misery once and for all.

Tyson Kidd Vs Jey Uso is up now.

Tyson picks up the win, with his Fisherman Neckbreaker.

Tonight, Daniel Bryan Vs Kane in a Casket Match.

Next, John Cena addresses Rusev.

At Fast Lane, it will be Rusev Vs Cena.

Rusev, with the lovely Lana is in the ring.

Rusev is irate over what happened at Royal Rumble.  He should be declared the winner.

Lana speaks, but Rusev interrupts.  Rusev is the only undefeated superstar, our United States Champion.

Rusev should not be facing Cena, he should be facing Lesnar.  John Cena does not have the hunger Rusev has, John Cena is a loser.

And of course, this brings out John Cena.

Even though the WWE Universe may not see eye to eye with Cena at times, but he thinks they may agree, either Rusev shuts up, or Cena shuts it for him.

This is a lesson in the word respect.  Rusev, your undefeated United States Champion, and has crushed everything in his path, but he just made the biggest mistake of his life.  Calling Cena a loser? The past?  Allow Cena to remind Rusev something, Cena is a 15-time World Champion, he is a 2-time Royal Rumble winner, he has appeared in 10 Wrestlemanias, and he is the face who runs this place.

Rusev just needs to learn his role, Rusev says he isn’t a challenge, he tells Rusev to dance with to the Hartford Hoedown, let’s fight right now.

Lana tells Rusev to not waste his time in this.

Rusev steps up, but then steps down and walks away.

Another day to fight.

Cena tells Lana that his heart isn’t a waste of time.  Cena’s heart fights Rusev at Fast Lane, and this heart will say The Champ Is Here.

Another match is set at Fast Lane.  Paige will face Nikki Bella, for the Divas Title.

Renee Young is with Paige.

The Bella Twins interrupt the interview, and make fun of Paige’s skin.

Paige goes after Brie, but Nikki has the last word.

Gold and Stardust are set for action, facing The Ascension.

The Ascension win with Wasteland.  Stardust made a blind tag to Goldust, and Goldust did not seem to like that.

Kane is near a casket, closes it with a smile.  Kane Vs Daniel Bryan in a Casket Match, live.

Justin Farmer from the new show “Wizard Wars” is backstage.  The Miz and Mizdow interrupt.

Bray Wyatt interrupts with a message.

What makes us smile?  Spending time with loves ones?  Money?  Memory from our childhood?  But Bray is different.  He finds joy in things that make our Mommies and Daddies protect the kids, out of fear.  But Bray is different, and he asks us what makes us smile?  Because he promises Bray can ruin that moment, and make sure we don’t smile, again.

Run.

Kane Vs Daniel Bryan in a Casket Match is next.

Daniel Bryan put Kane inside a Casket, and is celebrating with the fans, chanting Yes!!

This Monday, HHH will give us an announcement that will shock the world to its core.  How will this reflect Roman Reigns?

Smackdown ends with Daniel Bryan celebrating.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

After Raw being cancelled on Monday night, I was expecting more of a big show, but again, WWE did not capitalize.  It’s like no matter what happens, Raw will always be the number one show, and Smackdown a distant second.  I get that, but is it too much to pack a show with interesting things?  I bet you next week, we will see Daniel Bryan Vs Kane in an Ironman match, just because they feel like it.

What is the news for Monday night?  Are they adding a third wrestler to Wrestlemania?  It sure seems like it to me, although Monday’s segment with Brock and Reigns made me believe Roman was the right choice, all along.

Just not sure, and boy, they did nothing with Ziggler tonight, didn’t they?

What were your thoughts of the show?  Good?  Bad?  Who cares?  Send me your answers.

WWE NXT 1/28/15…Owens Vs Zayn Contract Signing

We are in Full Sail University in Florida.

The team of Blake and Murphy will face The Lucha Dragons, for the Tag Team Titles.

We have new Tag Team Champions, when Murphy and Blake win with a rollup,

Tonight, our 2 Number One Contenders matches continue, with Bull Dempsey Vs Baron Corbin, and Adrian Neville Vs Tyson Kidd.

Last week, we see footage with Sasha Banks attacking Charlotte, Baylee comes out to help her.  William Regal informs the divas that on February 11th, we will have a Fatal 4-way for the NXT Divas Title.

Baylee tells Charlotte she will do whatever it takes to be Divas Champion, but tonight, they will work as a tag team.

Charlotte tells her if it doesn’t, she won’t make it for the Fatal 4-Way.

Next, Adrian Neville Vs Tyson Kidd.

Tyler Breeze is sitting at home, saying he isn’t embarrassed, and will watch the rest of this tournament very closely.

Neville Vs Kidd, is now.

Kidd wins with his 450 splash to advance into the tournament.

The new guy asks Adrian in the ring how it feels about winning, and he is facing wither Bull Dempsey or Baron Corbin.

Adrian talks about in this business, you get right back up when you fall, and that way is for him to win the tournament, and win back his NXT World Title.

Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch are backstage.  Sasha talks about winning tonight, and on February 11th, Becky will know what to do.

Sasha walks away, and Becky brings up winning the NXTDivas Title is the right thing to do.

Murphy and Blake are backstage, excited over beating the team that dominated the Tag Team scene, in The Ascension.

Divas tag match, with Charlotte and Baylee Vs Sasha and Becky.

The match ends in a no contest.

Devinn Taylor is with Finn Balor.

Next week, Balor will face Hedeo Itami in the Semi-Final of the Number One Contender Tournament.  Finn talks about even though they are friends, he has no issue facing him.

Itami interrupts him, saying he brought him to NXT, and he can take him out.

Devinn Taylor is with Emma.

Emma is back to NXT, and she is acting a bit heelish it seems.  It’s time for a fresh start, and that will be against Carmella.

Devinn wants Emma to dance, but Emma refuses.

Baron Corbin Vs Bull Dempsey, now.

Cornin dominated this match, hitting End of Days.

Next week, the Semi-Finals are set with Hedeo Itami Vs Finn Balor, and Adrian Neville Vs Baron Corbin.

The official contract signing is up next, between Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.

Baron Corbin tells Devinn Taylor that he is one step closer to being the new NXT Champion, and next week, Adrian Neville is closer to being erased.

Bull Dempsey shows up, and he tells him he got lucky two times, and if he thinks he can do it again, he is crazy.

Corbin pie faces Bull, and walks away.

The NXT GM, William Regal introduces both Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.

William tells both men that if they touch each other, he will cancel the match, at NXT Takeover.

William asks Sami to sign first, despite being the NXT Champion.  But he does, and asks for Kevin to do the same thing.

Kevin does not say a word, and Sami tells him he isn’t going to speak.  What about the last 12 years, when they started in Montreal?  They have been friends, they have been enemies, but it was always about coming here, to NXT.  He didn’t think at Revolution, when Sami arrived, and Owens arrived that they would be here.  But it’s moot, because in 2 weeks, Sami will beat the hell out of Owens.

This contract doesn’t say a title match.  Kevin said this wasn’t personal, this was always about fighting for a prize.  The NXT Title is a prize, and this is about a better life for Kevin, his wife, and kids.  So if this isn’t a World Title match, he isn’t signing it.

Sami wants this to be a championship match.  He knows Owens is serious, he won’t fight, unless it’s a championship match.  The fans want to see this, so make this a championship match, so Sami can kick Owens’ ass.

Regal makes some changes, Sami signs it.  And now Owens does too.

Owens throws the contract at Sami, and he throws the pen at Sami, and walks away with Sami being held back by William.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was another good show, it sets up the big one in 2 weeks, and in particular, the big title match.  I will try to make sure to watch that live when it happens at 8:00 that night.

I like Bull Dempsey, I said this before, but what else do you do with him?  He lost rather easily twice to Baron Corbin.  They could always put out a tag team, with Bull and someone else.

Is Adrian ready to step into WWE?  I have to think the winner of this tournament is going to be the winner of the Balor Vs Itami, right?

I also like seeing what the divas have to offer, and a more aggressive Emma, who in my opinion hasn’t stood out yet in WWE might be the best thing for her.  We know she can wrestle, so get aggressive.

What were your thoughts?  Share with me, here.

WWE Royal Rumble 1/25/15

The Road to Wrestlemania has begun, tonight.  Who becomes “The One” to face the WWE World Champion?  And, who walks out tonight as the WWE World Champion?  Those two questions will be answered, and you need to keep it locked here throughout the night.

Here we go.

We are set for our Royal Rumble Kick-Off show.  Live in Philly.

The beautiful and talented Renee Young introduces us, with Booker T, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton are part of our Royal Rumble panel.

Tonight, a man becomes the one to main event Wrestlemania 31.  Who becomes “The One”?

We also have a Triple Threat match tonight, for the WWE World Title.  Brock Lesnar Vs John Cena Vs Seth Rollins.

The Rock is in Philly, and tweeted.  Lana responded, could it be?

Or is it just a tease?

Byron is choosing Bray Wyatt to win tonight.  Corey is going with Roman Reigns.  Booker is choosing Rusev.

He could be a wildcard here.

Renee is going with Daniel Bryan.

Our Kick-off show is The New Day Vs Tyson Kidd and Cesaro.

Tom Phillips is in the Social Media Lounge.  We can join in on the conversation with a hashtag #RoyalRumble.

We can ask questions with Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, and Erick Rowan.

Tonight, Paige and Natalya will face The Bella Twins.

A preview to the match now.

We see footage from this past Monday night, with the old school teams taking care of The Ascension, and it ends with a Clothesline from Hell.

Tom Phillips is with The New Age Outlaws.

Tonight, it’s The Outlaws Vs The Ascension.  The lesson will continue, age won’t be a factor here.  And we can all see it on The WWE Network, for $9.99.

Next, we will hear an exclusive interview Booker T had with “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels.

Booker T has a one on one interview with Shawn.

He wants his thoughts on the Royal Rumble match itself.

Shawn brings up the winner gets to main event Wrestlemania, and that is the goal for every wrestler.

1995 Shawn was the first man to enter the Rumble first, and win the whole thing.

He was able to prove that nobody else wanted it more than Shawn.

1996, he won it back to back years.

1996 probably meant more, because he was able to win the WWE Championship that year.

Thoughts on Daniel Bryan’s chances to win the Rumble.

Daniel is in the same situation, he won the title, but had his rug pulled underneath him, with the injury. He needs to find it deep in himself to outlast everyone else.

HBK brings up Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt.  It’s wide open this year.

What about The Road to Wrestlemania?

The focus needs to be on the Rumble match, but then after that, the focus needs to go to headlining Wrestlemania.  You can find out alot about yourself, surviving.

Good interview here.

Focus needs to be on the Rumble itself as the panelists talk, and then shift the focus after the match, to Wrestlemania.

Next, our Royal Rumble kick-off match.  The New Day Vs Tyson Kidd and Cesaro is up now.

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

The New Day Vs Tyson Kidd and Cesaro is up now.

Kidd and Cesaro win with a little uppercut from Cesaro, and a TKO from Kidd, pinning Kofi.

The Philly fans are going to be fun tonight.

Tom Phillips will ask questions to Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback in the Social Media Lounge.

Royal Rumble is always about the number video.

We see footage from last week, when Sting made his Raw debut, John Cena defeated 3 men to get Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan’s jobs back.

Tom Phillips is with all 3 men.

This only makes Ryback hungrier, knowing he has an opportunity.  Ziggler was rooting for Cena and they are 3 of the best.

How did Rowan feel after losing his Rumble qualifying match this past Thursday.  It’s not how you handle a situation, it’s what you do about it.

Questions now with the 3 men, it’s about outlasting each other.  Ziggler will prove he can outlast everyone and proving to be the best.

Triple Threat video is now playing.

We are all set for Royal Rumble.  The Rock is in the house.

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

Who will be “The One” tonight?

Oh You Didn’t Know?

The New Age Outlaws Vs The Ascension kick off the show.

The Ascension defeat The Outlaws with The Fall of Man.

Next week, after Raw on WWE Network, Stone Cold Podcast, with Austin’s guest being HHH.

Last Monday night, “The Vigilante” Sting made his Raw debut, to assist John Cena in beating Rollins, Big Show, and Kane.

The Authority are discussing how nobody told them Sting entered the building last week.

Paul Heyman interrupts this talk.

He is here to solve their problems.  They had a problem with John Cena, he has a solution, Brock Lesnar.  He had a problem with Seth Rollins being added to the Title match, that’s okay, because Heyman has a solution, Brock Lesnar.  They have a problem with “The Vigilante” Sting?  Heyman has a solution, Brock Lesnar.

World Tag Team Title match is up now, The Miz and Mizdow Vs The Uso Brothers.

The Usos retain their titles, with Jey pinning Miz with his splash.  Philly loved Mizdow, and of course I can see Miz Vs Mizdow for Wrestlemania.

Royal Rumble Kick-Off panel are here.

We see from earlier tonight, Tyson Kidd and Cesaro defeated The New Day.

J & J Security are playing WWE Immortals, featured on phones all over.

Rollins is upset about this.  They need to focus on Cena, and Brock Lesnar to make sure Rollins walks out with the WWE World Title.

He is not “The Future”, he is “Right Now”.

63 days away from Wrestlemania.

The Bellas Vs Natalya and Paige is up now.

The Bellas win when Brie nails Paige to avoid Nattie to tag her, and Nikki nails a forearm shot, pinning Nattie.

WWE superstars now talk about how to be “The One”.

WWE World Title match is up now.

John Cena Vs Brock Lesnar Vs Seth Rollins.

Who faces “The One”?

Brock Lesnar wins the match with a F-5, pinning Rollins.

Incredible match here, best title match, possibly for the entire year.  They did a spot, where Brock wa slaid out by Cena through the barricade And was put through an announce table by Rollins with a beautiful Randy Savage elbow.  Paramedics and EMTs came over with the stretcher, but when Cena had a moment to win the title, Lesnar gave him a German Suplex, then hit a F-5.

So Brock right now is headed to Wrestlemania.  The question is who win the Rumble match?

WWE Fast Lane is coming on Sunday, February 22nd.

The Rock!!

But wait a second, Rusev was never eliminated.

Now he is, so Reigns wins.

Roman Reigns is going to Wrestlemania.

Brock Lesnar is watching backstage.  Rock and Reigns are cousins, and he shakes Roman’s hand and raises his arm.

Philly still doesn’t like this.

But HHH and Stephanie are out here.  Perhaps they didn’t know Rock is in the building?  Reigns is pointing to the Wrestlemania sign.

Philly still doesn’t like Roman.

63 days away from Wrestlemania, and WWE now needs to start building Reigns up.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

WWE has ruined any credibility Reigns had, with those lame ass, cheesy promos.  This was supposed to be his moment, his return because at the end of the day, Lesnar Vs Reigns would be fun to see.  But the crowd shit on it, because of Vince ruining those awful promos, and nursery rhymes Reigns had when he came back.

So where do we go from here?  Do we get a reboot?  Does Reigns turn heel?  If Reigns is the new face of WWE, now is the time to capitalize on that.

I loved the WWE Title match.  The Rumble match is always fun, but the fans shitting on this, again just killed any momentum they had.

At the end of the show, during the post show, we hear from John Cena.  He talks about failing to win the title, and after the interview, Rusev interrupts him.

And there we have our Wrestlemania match.

This also squashes any rumors of Undertaker coming back and challenging Lesnar.

Nice to see Kane break HBK’s Royal Rumble record, and we saw DDP, we also saw Bubba Ray Dudley.

There you go guys, Royal Rumble.  What were your thoughts, and where do we go from here?  Send me your thoughts.

Impact Wrestling 1/23/15…Feast Or Fired

We are in New York City.  12 wrestlers all compete for an opportunity of a lifetime.  3 title shots on the line, and one pink slip.

Tonight, it’s Feast Or Fired.  And we kick the show off with the Feast or Fired match.

The four men who retrieved the briefcases are Robbie E, Rockstar Spud, Austin Aries, and Magnus.

We find out later tonight the fate of all four men.

Bobby Lashley has entered the building.  He is going to the ring to get his title back.

Moments ago, Feast or Fired match.  Robbie E, Rockstar Spud, Austin Aries, and Magnus all won.  We find out the results, later tonight.

Magnus shares his thoughts from what just happened.  This is an opportunity for Magnus, and he feels good about his chances for a title shot.

Bram feels slighted though because Magnus stole it from him, and Magnus more or less says deal with it.  The two get into each other’s faces, with officials breaking up the melee.

World Heavyweight Champion, Lashley comes out.

We see BDC last week take out Lashley.

We wants his title, now.

Enter Kenny King.

Kenny calls Lashley unappreciative, and ungrateful.  He acts like he won the championship by himself.  His family took care of Bobby Roode.  But they don’t need Lashley anymore.  BDC represents the World Title.

Lashley wants his title.

Kenny King wants to fight, as does Lashley.

Kenny King wants the BDC to join him, and here they come.

Lashley hits a spear, and the BDC attack Lashley.

MVP tells Lashley he won the title, because of MVP.  And if he wants MVP, he will see him in the street.  He will be waiting for him.

Earlier tonight, Feast or Fired took place, we will find out the results tonight.

Next, Gail Kim Vs Havoc.

Moments ago, we see MVP challenging Lashley to a street fight.  Lashley is limping to the back, will he answer to the challenge?

Awesome Kong video is being shown now.

Gail Kim Vs Havoc, now.

Havoc is DQ’d when she put her hands on the ref.  She kicked Gail in the eye, and it seems the eye had swelled up.  Havoc is chasing Brian Stiffler around, and then….

The lights go out, the come back on, and we see Kong go face to face with Havoc.

They finally trade blows, with Havoc getting the first shot, but it didn’t work.  Kong took Havoc out with a clothesline.

Tonight, Kurt Angle and Bobby Roode face Eric Young and Lo-Ki.

Last week, EC3 challenged Jeremy Borash to a match, and it was accepted.  Tonight, EC3 Vs Jeremy Borash.

Right now, Tigre Uno Vs the debuting Khoya.

Khoya wins with a Veera Bomb.

Storm has the mic, and he calls out Matt Hardy.  Matt has beat his demons, but later tonight, he faces Hardy and will prove he can be a “demon” Matt can’t beat.  And he makes it clear, there is always room for one more in The Revolution.

Angle and Roode discuss their upcoming match.  Roode just wants his hands on Young for what he did.  Kurt wants to prove he can win the World Title, and is upset about what MVP did to the title.  He tells Roode if they stay on the same page, they can win.  If not, they will lose.

Young and Lo-Ki Vs Angle and Roode is next.

Josh Matthews is in the studio, previewing the next match, Young and Lo-Ki Vs Roode and Angle, with footage from the last few weeks.

Also earlier tonight, Feast or Fired match.  Robbie E, Rockstar Spud, Austin Aries, and Magnus all secured the 4 briefcases.  We find out the results, tonight.

Rockstar Spud is being interviewed backstage.  He said when he won British Boot Camp, he wanted to be a champion, and he has a chance for that.  Or he could be fired, but with how EC3 treated himself, and JB, he is willing to take that chance, tonight.

Christy Hemme will share the results with the four men.

Kurt and Roode Vs Young and Ki is now.

EY and Ki win when MVP and Joe came out to distract Angle for a moment, and EY nails Roode with a chair, and Ki pins Roode.

Coming up next, JB Vs EC3.

MVP is waiting for Lashley in the streets of New York City.

We also find out the results of Feast or Fired, later tonight.

EC3 Vs Rockstar Spud video is being shown, and tonight, we get Jeremy Borash Vs EC3.

EC3 is doing the announcements for us, and doing a fantastic job, I might add.

The match ends in a no contest, JB fights back but Tyrus comes in and destroys both JB and Spud.  But then we see Mark Andrews, winner of British Boot Camp, season 2 help HB and Spud.  Mark hits a Shooting Star Press to send EC3 and Tyrus packing.

Josh and Taz discuss the Feast or Fired results.  Someone is getting fired, tonight.

Storm Vs Matt Hardy is now.

Hardy wins with an inside cradle, pinning Storm.

Storm wants to shake Hardy’s hand, but Matt won’t give it to him.  Abyss comes out and lays Hardy out.  Storm nails a Last Call Superkick.

Storm calls for Abyss to grab Janice from underneath the ring, but Jeff comes out to help his brother.

Twist of Fate, and Abyss is out.

Hardy challenges Abyss to a Monster’s Ball match, next week.

We find out the results of Feast or Fired match, next.

Next week, it’s official, Monster’s Ball match with Jeff Hardy Vs Abyss.

MVP is waiting for Lashley, and Joe doesn’t like this.  But MVP assures him, he has this.

We now have the results of the Feast or Fired match.  Christy Hemme gives us the rules.

Rockstar Spud kicks things off here.

Spud will receive a X-Division Title match.

Magnus receives a Tag Team Title shot.

Robbie E or Austin Aries could be fired, next.

When we came back, Robbie E. was a bit nervous that he might be fired.  However, he has a great idea.  Velvet was the one who really grabbed the briefcase, so he makes her open the case.

For some reason, she does and the briefcase says Velvet Sky is fired.

Robbie is happy he still has a job, and Austin reveals that he indeed will receive a World Title shot.

Lashley and MVP fight in the streets, now.

The fight breaks down with Beat Down Clan aiding MVP, sending Lashley back outside, but Kurt Angle and Bobby Roode fight them off.

The camera zooms in on Roode picking up the World Title, stares at it for many seconds.  Lashley gets up, and the two men lock eyes, as the show ends.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

It seemed like TNA threw so much into tonight’s show, but nothing really stuck.  We have the Feast or Fired gimmick, but did they really give up on the woman who was the covergirl of the Knockout calendar?  Velvet Sky, if this truly is the end deserved a far better send-off than what she got.

And for the second week in a row, we had our main event not feature a match, although the stare-down between Lashley and Roode was good.

I guess we will see where we go with these other storylines, but tonight’s show just wasn’t good.

Do you agree?  Disagree?  Send me your thoughts.

WWE NXT 1/21/15….Number One Contending Tournament

We kick the show off with the history that has taken place with Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Adrian Neville.  Last week, we had an incredible title match between Sami and Neville.

William Regal shows up, he tells us the next prime special will take place on February 11th.  But tonight, we will determine who the new Number One Contender is to the NXT Title.

Sami Zayn shows up, he is scheduled to face Ty Dillinger, but Sami destroys Ty.

Sami wants Kevin Owens, now.

Regal comes out, he says this isn’t the Sami Zayn he knows, and will not stand for this.  Sami tells him he will not wrestle until he gets Kevin Owens.

Kevin doesn’t deserve a title shot yet, maybe he will win the tournament.

Sami isn’t asking, he is demanding Owens, even if it’s a non-title match.  He wants him.

Regal makes the match, at NXT Takeover, February 11th.  Owens Vs Zayn.

Also tonight, NXT Divas Title is on the line.  Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks.  Also tonight, 2 Number One Contender matches are set.  Hideo Itami Vs Tyler Breeze.  Next, it will be Curtis Axel Vs Finn Balor.

NXT Takeover, Sami Zayn Vs Kevin Owens in a non-title match and during the break, Regal tells us the official contract signing will be next week.

Axel Vs Balor is now.

Balor wins with a Coup De Gras, advancing to the tournament to crown the new Number One Contender.

Rich Brennenan, Jason Albert, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

8-man tournament begins tonight.

Last week, Sasha Banks pinned Charlotte in a Divas tag match.

Devinn Taylor is with Sasha.  Sasha tells her that she will pin Charlotte again, and there is nothing she can do about it.

Bull Dempsey tells us he had an opportunity to put everything in the palm of his hands last week, but he let it slip away against Baron Corbin.  Next week, he gets the rematch, and he won’t let it slip away, in the first round of the Number One Contender tournament.

Divas Title match is up now, Sasha Banks Vs Charlotte.

Sasha is DQ’d when Becky Lynch interferes, and here comes Baylee to save Charlotte.

Baylee has the Divas Title, Charlotte grabs the title, and Baylee hits a Belly and Baylee.

Out comes William Regal again, who is very busy tonight.

He calls for a Fatal 4-Way for the Divas Title, on February 11th.

Kevin Owens is backstage, texting.  Some new guy approaches him, wanting to hear his thoughts on Sami Zayn.  Kevin will share his thoughts on Sami, next week at the contract signing.

The Vaudevillians face two guys, here.  Wesley Blake and Buddy Murphy.

Murphy and Blake find a way to win with a kick and a rollup, Blake pins Gotch.

“The Prince of Pretty” Tyler Breeze is up next, and he will work his plan of separating the world of ugly people, and pretty people.

Itami Vs Breeze, next.

Blake and Murphy are with the new guy.  This was not an upset by them, this will be their year.  They want to challenge the Lucha Dragons to the Tag Team Titles, next week.

Also next week, Adrian Neville Vs Tyson Kidd, and Baron Corbin Vs Bull Dempsey, in the Number One Contender tournament.  Also, next week, official contract signing with Kevin Owens Vs Sami Zayn.

Our main event, Breeze Vs Itami is now.

Itami wins the match with a roundhouse kick to the head, pinning Breeze.

Itami advances into the semi-finals of the tournament.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another good show tonight, setting up the big show 3 weeks from now, on February 11th.  I am looking forward to the contract signing next week, to hear thoughts from both Owens and Zayn.  I am also guessing at the big show, we will see a new Number One Contender crowned too, and of course the Divas Title match too.

Tyler Breeze showed what he can do, I wasn’t a fan of his at first, but the last few months, he has grown on me.  He reminds me of a younger Dolph Ziggler, even with the same cheesy gimmick.  But at the end of the day, the guy can go in the ring.

But of course, Balor and Itami were the stars here, and I expect them to face off on February 4th.  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.

WWE Monday Night Raw 1/19/15….Raw Reunion

Tonight, we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr.  Always dream to strive for the best.

We are 6 days away from Royal Rumble.  We get an awesome video for Martin Luther King, Jr and now we get the Raw intro that we should get every week.

“Tonight is the night”.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show to a sold-out arena in D-Town, Dallas.

It’s a Raw Reunion.

Here Comes The Pain!!

Brock is fuming, with Heyman trying to settle him down.

Brock takes the mic from Heyman and says he is here to fight, wants Seth Rollins in the ring.

When Lesnar shows up, it’s business time, baby.  He has 10 seconds to get his weasel ass out here.

No Rollins.

When Brock shows up, Rollins is nowhere to be found.

On Your Knees, Punk.

Here comes HHH, and he isn’t smiling.

HHH is trying to settle everyone down.  He knows Brock is upset, and he understands.  Seth embarrassed Brock, hit a Curbstomp.  But honestly, wouldn’t Brock do the same thing?  After all, he suplexed Seth first.  How about they all calm down, get Brock a nice, juicy steak while HHH and Heyman discuss things like businessmen.

Brock asks HHH if he is here to fix this, or is he here to fight?

Here comes Stephanie, wanting prevailing heads to calm down.  This is not what Brock wants to do here.

Let’s just think about this.

Stephanie is just trying to help Brock listen.

Rollins is on the Titantron.

Brock is always just 2 steps behind, right?  He wants to get his hands on him?  Just be patient, because he will get his chance in 6 days, before Rollins takes his WWE World Title.

Heyman says this is a conversation between the adults, train your puppy.  Either Brock fixes this, or The Authority fixes this, because either way, it will be fixed.  And here is a spoiler alert, after the Title match, the winner, and still reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion…

Here comes John Cena.

This Sunday, the three men will settle this.  He wants to talk to The Authority.

A few months ago, they asked Cena to join The Authority, and he said hell no.  So they did anything they can to get rid of Cena.

But he wants them to keep it up, because he will make sure everything they do and say lights a fire underneath Cena and this Sunday, he will take care of the mercenary, and the lackey, and say The Champ Is Here.

But these two don’t even have fire anymore, he would do anything to get those three men back.  They are just a pile of ashes.  Dallas, Texas, these aren’t The Authority, they are ashholes.

Stephanie wants to tell more jokes here.  They want to savior this moment, because this is a turning point with John Cena.  John used to be motivated, he used to defy all odds, and find ways to win, but this isn’t John Cena anymore.  The truth is The Authority are here, because of Cena.

Cena is responsible for the three men that lost his job, nobody wants to see Cena win, they don’t want to see him win at the Rumble, he isn’t the man he used to be.

Rollins calls Cena a loser.  Last week, he failed at getting his friends’ jobs back, but he failed.  Just like he will fail at this Sunday.  One thing he and Brock should agree on is Cena’s time is up.  Just tuck his head underneath his legs, and leave.

Cena said this is not about money, this is not about the title, this is about respect.  And when Cena wins the title, he gets the respect back.  How about they sweeten their pot, when Cena wins, how about they give those three men their jobs back.

HHH reminds Cena that he failed at getting their jobs back, but if you truly want this opportunity, you have to put something up too.

Cena has a match tonight, and if he wins, they get their jobs back.  If he loses, he does not get a WWE World Title shot at Royal Rumble.

Stephanie asks if he wants them to have their jobs back, or does he truly not care?

HHH proposes people vote on WWE App, to see if Cena should wrestle, with the 3 jobs on the line.

Is this a simple yes, or no.  What does the fans truly think of John Cena.

They are showing us how to download the WWE App.

Next, Daniel Bryan Vs Bray Wyatt.

We come back in mid-entrance form with Bray Wyatt, enter Daniel Bryan and we have our match.

With some help from Kane, Bray Wyatt picks up the win with Sister Abigail.  This took 3 segments, and a fun match, to boot.

Now Kane gives Daniel a Chokeslam, and starts to pound on him.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, Daniel faces Kane.  If Daniel loses, he is done from the Royal Rumble.

Fans will get to vote if Cena should fight for Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback’s jobs tonight.

Also a Legends Panel tonight, with Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and Shawn Michaels.

We are at the American Airlines, in Dallas.  Should John Cena risk his title match for opportunity to get the three men’s jobs back.

HHH is on the phone, when Scott Hall and Kevin Nash are there to greet him.

Shawn Michaels comes in, and all three men want the suit to be gone.  It’s not a Kliq routine, without X-Pac.  We see X-Miz here, with the real X-Pac shows up.

The Miz interrupts the fun, but walks away.

Legends Panel is next.

Earlier tonight, we see HHH put everything on the line with Cena tonight.  Should he risk his WWE Title chance with trying to get the three men’s job back?

Voting starts now.

Byron Saxton is here to introduce the Legends Panel.

Hogan, Shawn, and Flair all come out.

Byron wants their thoughts on whether John Cena should put his WWE World Title on the line to get the three men’s jobs back?

Shawn thinks yes.  Flair disagrees.  Hogan thinks he should.

Switching gears to the Royal Rumble match itself.  Flair won the 1992 Royal Rumble, he said it was the greatest moment of his career.

It still is for Flair, to enter the Rumble at number 3, and to win the World Title.  And to have guys like HBK, Hogan, The Undertaker, and the newest inductee to the Hall of Fame, “Macho Man”, it is an honor to win the Royal Rumble.

Byron asks Shawn what it was like to win the 1995 Royal Rumble, with the way he did it.

Shawn said it is the definition of the future.  To win the Rumble, you know you’re in the main event of Wrestlemania.  Dare he say, without Royal Rumble, there would be no Mr. Wrestlemania.

Byron wants Hogan’s take on winning the Rumble.

Hogan talks about the competition of the men in the ring.  You never knew who was coming in after you.

There have only been 22 men to win the Royal Rumble in history.  Who is your pick to win?

Shawn is going with Bray Wyatt.

Hogan tells Shawn he isn’t going to win.

Shawn is tired of Hogan pushing him, he wants Hogan again, at Summerslam.

Okay, not really.

Hogan’s choice is Daniel Bryan, Jack.

Flair is going with Dean Ambrose.

Here comes The Big Show.

Show brings up we have 3 Hall of Famers, 3 legends.  He doesn’t see legends, with the crowd chanting he sold out.

Hogan brings up maybe these people don’t want him out there.

Show told them this isn’t Hogan’s time anymore.  They didn’t pick him, because they were all jealous.  Big Show reminds Hogan he beat him for the WCW World Title his first night in the business.

And how about Flair?  He was wheeling and dealing, jet-flying, but when Flair put Show in the Figure Four, he spun him around, and took his spot.  And Shawn, he faded out of the spotlight when Show came into the company.  And now these washed-up has-beens are begging for attention.

Big Show is going to win the Royal Rumble, because there isn’t anyone that can throw him over the top rope.  So Big Show is going to ask kindly they all leave the ring, go back to the old folks home, and go back where you belong.

Flair takes off his jacket, his two rings, and starts to chop Big Show, but Big Show chops him down.

Emter Roman Reigns.

Big Show warns Reigns something bad will happen, so get out of his ring.

Reigns fights back, and Show tries a Chokeslam, but Reigns throws him out of the ring.

This is the best way you push Reigns, just have him kick ass.

Flair is being tended by officials, with Big Show’s actions.  He might have broken his jaw.

Switching gears, John Cena has a big task ahead of him.

Renee Young is with John Cena.

The results from the WWE App poll is 85% in favor of Cena fighting for the jobs tonight.

Does Cena think the fans have turned against Cena, thinking he can’t win tonight.

Cena loves the challenge.  He has been loved, he has been hated, but the one thing he loves is the WWE Universe, and they have spoken.  He wants to fight, he wants that chance.  Because moments like this make you a champion, and The Champ is here.

Our next match is Bad News Barrett Vs Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose wins the match with Dirty Deeds.

The IC Champion lost again.

John Cena’s WWE World Title shot hangs in the balance tonight.  Who will Cena face tonight?  We will find out.

The Dallas Cowboys are in the house, showing everyone what it’s like to finish in third place.

The Road to Wrestlemania has begun, we can all watch it on WWE Network, this Sunday.

Royal Rumble inside the numbers video is playing now.

The New Day are facing the team of Tyson Kidd and Cesaro.

The New Day picks up the win.  Tonight, Cena will have a chance to get Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback their jobs back.  But who will Cena face?

NWO Wolfpack reunion is up, next.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, Daniel Bryan Vs Kane is a No DQ match.

NWO Wolfpack in da house!!

Hey Yo!!  Scott wants to do a survey.  Are you here to see Raw Reunion?  Or are you here to see NWO?

Nash brings up the three men single-handedly changed the landscape of this business.  They helped raise the bar with WWE.  We have “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.  DX, The entire WWE Attitude Era, they have formed that legacy.

And before X-Pac could say much, here comes The Ascension.

Viktor sees nothing but 3 old dogs, wanting to be put into their misery, and they were born to do it.  No tag team is better than The Ascension.  Past or present, and surely not a team from WCW.

The fans are chanting for NWO.

Hall throws a toothpick at Conor, and here comes JBL.

They have the audacity to come out in front of these legends that have paved the business.  He had a feeling they would be coming out, so he called on a legend to help make a statement.

JBL takes off his shirt, to reveal APA Security is in business.

DAMN!!

Oh You Didn’t Know….

The New Age Outlaws come out.

Now wait just a Dallas Cowboy moment.  It seems like you gentlemen want to throw a party without the Outlaws.  It ain’t a party like the old school party, because the party doesn’t stop.

So far, it seems this party consists of thoroughbreds and racehorses.  So who invited the jackasses?

Kick ass has commended.

And it ends with a Clothesline from Hell by JBL.

The Ascension is done.

The Authority are here to tell us who John Cena will face?  Cena will face….

Seth Rollins, The Big Show, and Kane.

3-on-1 Handicap match, firing the drummer boy.

Stephanie and HHH will be at ringside to witness the self-destruction.

The Bella Twins are at commentary, and we will see Summer Rae and Alicia Fox against Paige and Natalya.

At Royal Rumble, we will see Paige and Natalya Vs The Bella Twins.

Nattie and Paige win with a Scorpion Crosslock.  Awesome finisher.

Tonight, John Cena faces Rollins, Kane, and Big Show in a 3-on-1 Handicap match.  If he win, Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan all get their jobs back.  If he loses, the WWE World Title match is done.

The Royal Rumble Kick-Off match this Sunday is The New Day Vs Cesaro, Kidd, and Rose in an Elimination Match.

Now, R-Truth is about to be killed by Rusev.

Yup, Truth tried but The Accolade is hit, and match is over.

John Cena tonight will face Seth Rollins, Big Show, and Kane.

Rollins is talking with J & J Security, wanting everyone to see what kind of failure John Cena is.

Lesnar goes face to face with Rollins.  He is a prize-fighter, he will wait for Sunday to take Rollins out.  He just hopes Seth does his job tonight, and take out Cena.  THEN, Brock can take Rollins out this Sunday.

I think Seth just shit in his pants.

Jey Uso will go one on one with The Miz tonight.

At Royal Rumble, The Miz and Mizdow face The Uso’s.

Jey picks up the win with a splash.

Moving on.

WWE asked Hulk Hogan on WWE App for his thoughts on John’s chances tonight.  He has nothing to lose, brother.

Except a World Title chance, but I get what he’s saying.

Our main event, Cena Vs 3 men, next.

Oh lord, New Age Outlaws face The Ascension at Royal Rumble.

Rollins, Kane, and Big Show Vs Cena is up now.

Cena wins the match, when “The Vigilante” Sting makes an appearance, shows up on ramp.  And points to HHH.

Cena rolls up Rollins, and wins the match.

HHH screams out for Sting.

Here Comes The Pain!!

Lesnar absolutely destroys everyone, lays a F-5 on Big Show, and the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I have to admit, the idea of Sting Vs HHH at Wrestlemania gives me goosebumps.  The crowd reaction to Sting was just amazing, even if this means Cena wins again.

And then the ending was just incredible….Brock Lesnar comes in, and does what he does to kick ass.

This is what we will all remember about tonight.  The rest of the show filled its purpose, but seeing the ending was gold.

What did you think of the show?  Send me your thoughts.  Who is your choice to win Royal Rumble?  Who wins WWE World Title match?

Dare they even put Rumble match on, last?  Or is the PPV really the title match?

Regardless, the Road to Wrestlemania has begun, here we go.

Impact Wrestling 1/16/15…The Hardys Vs The Wolves

We see footage from last week, with all of the champions defending their titles.  We also saw Awesome Kong make her return to TNA, and a new World Champion was won, when Lashley defeated Roode.  Eric Young and Samoa Joe turned their backs on Roode, where do we go from here?

Impact Wrestling, on Destination America is now.

Josh Matthews is in the TNA studios in Nashville, showing us a preview of what we will see tonight.

We see Roode from last week.  His friend Eric Young took something from him that means something, and tonight, he challenges Eric Young to a match.  Roode will make EY pay.

Our season premiere is in New York City.  We will see The Hardys Vs The Wolves.

MVP’s crew come out, with Joe, Lo-Ki, Kenny King, and MVP.

Just when we thought we could laugh at MVP’s demise, he switches gears, change lanes, and bam….MVP is in control again.

MVP knew from day one of the wrestling business, it would be him Vs the world.  He knew he would surround himself with minds that think alike.  He had to go to his family.  Guys like Samoa Joe and Lo-Ki, guys he had ridden with and grew up with in the indys, back in the day.  He calls these guys The Beat Down Clan, or BDC.

Before we go to the new World Champion, here is “Showtime” Eric Young.

Tonight, no DQ match is set, Roode Vs Young.

MVP and EY haven’t seen eye to eye on anything, except one thing.

Just to be super clear, our opinion doesn’t matter.  The truth is a funny thing.  The truth is EY and MVP.  They couldn’t be in the ring together a month ago, but he did something for his family.  He gave the title to his brother, and he respects that.  He had a brother once.  When EY was World Champion, he gave Roode a title chance, and EY beat him.  But when Roode was champ, where was EY’s shot?

Maybe Roode was afraid EY would beat him, again?  Because nobody knows better that he is a world-class wrestler.  A world-class athlete.  When EY was laid up in the hospital, where was Roode’s visit?  Where was his call?  He just received a text.  And now, he took something of Roode, and tonight, he takes everything else.

MVP introduces us the new 2-time World Heavyweight Champion, “The Destroyer” Lashley.

No Lashley on the ramp.

But here comes Kurt Angle, instead.

Look at the 5 of them being called a family, he sees thugs in the ring.  And he tells EY that he will get payback tonight, because Bobby Roode will kick his ass.

MVP warns Kurt he is breathing, and Kurt tells them he isn’t the Director of Authority anymore, he can’t make matches, but he can make them all tap.

Joe gets into Kurt’s face, and the two men have a face-to-face, with Kurt giving a cheap shot.

Officials try to back them up, and Kurt issues a challenge against Joe, now.

Joe Vs Angle, now.

Joe makes Kurt tap out with the Rear Naked Choke, after Joe shoved Kurt into the ref, and kicked him in the balls.  But Joe picks up the win.

During the match, they tried to get a word in with Roode, but Bobby wasn’t there.  After the match, BDC attacks Kurt a bit more, with EY and Roode comes out, with a chair when we go to a break.

We come back from a break, with Roode sitting on a chair.

He is trying to be calm about this, but this crap has gone on too far.

He heard Eric Young talk about why he ended a 15-year friendship, and cost Roode the TNA World Championship, the only thing he loves about this business.

And everything EY spewed out was bullshit.

This ring is Bobby’s home, and they are in New York City.  Tonight is not about wrestling, it’s about payback, and tonight, Roode will make EY pay for what he has done.

Josh and Taz are in the studio.  Tomorrow morning, we will get Mike Tenay’s Impact Unlocked.  He will have an interview with Magnus, and we get an exclusive part of it.

We see footage from last week when EC3 shaves Jeremy Borash’s head to get to Rockstar Spud.

Spud approaches JB.

EC3 has become insane, and JB told Spud that the hair will grow back, but someday, EC3 will get what is coming back to him.

The Revolution is in the building.

They sit in the balcony, watching the next match.  Number One Contender’s match with The Hardys Vs The Wolves.

Winner gets a shot at Tag Gold.

The Hardys win with a double side effect, Matt pinning Eddie.  The Revolution is watching along.

Next week, it’s Feast or Fired.

Bram has his thoughts.  He’s all about this opportunity and knows he and Magnus can take control of everything.

Kenny King is discussing things with MVP.  MVP assures Kenny that everything is cool with the champ.  If not, they have another plan.

EY is pacing around nervous, saying he will show us and the world that he has what it takes to go after Roode.

Roode Vs EY, No DQ match is next.

We come back, and it seems EC3 and Tyrus invade the controls, and EC3 is challenging Jeremy Borash to a match, one on one next week.  He will give JB 30 minutes to answer to the challenge.

The TNA World Champion has entered the building.

Eric Young Vs Bobby Roode, in a No DQ match is up now.

In what was a brutal fight, EY hits a Piledriver, right on a chair to pin Roode.

MVP and Kenny King come out to the ring.

He tells Roode he is headed for the hospital, and we will get to hear from the TNA World Champion.  But perhaps Roode gets a hospital visit?

Austin Aries, the new X-Division Champion defends the title against Lo-Ki.  Things are different this week, with Ki now aligning himself with a group.  Strength in numbers.  He warns them that when Austin is in a corner, he can be a very dangerous man.

Lo-Ki Vs Austin Aries, but next The Beautiful People Vs Taryn Terrell and the returning Brooke.

EC3 and Tyrus are waiting to hear from JB.

Last week, we saw the return of Brooke and Awesome Kong.

We hear from Brooke, she doesn’t like Robbie E.

Brooke and Taryn Vs BP, now.

BP wins when Brooke slaps Robbie, but Velvet rolls Brooke up for the win.

BP celebrate in the ring, the lights go out, and come back, we see Awesome Kong waiting for them.

She takes them both out, chokeslams DJ Z, and now here comes Havoc.

Officials come out to break them up, while the fans want them to fight.

EC3 walks in to confront JB.

JB is not a fighter, and EC3 tells him he is the heart and soul of TNA for 13 years.  And when Carter shaved JB’s head, nobody came to check on him.  Why?

Because nobody cares.

JB accepts the challenge.

Aries Vs Lo-Ki is up next, and we will get Feast or Fired match, next week.

Camera crew follows Manik to hear from James Storm.

It’s time for us to be introduced to the newest disciple, Khoya.

Khoya in his own country, India was lost.  But now, he has found The Revolution.  Next week, the power, the speed, and the destruction will be unleashed on Impact Wrestling.

Feast or Fired video is being shown now.

X-Division Title match is up now, Austin Aries Vs Lo-Ki.

Lo-Ki is now the new X-Division Champion, with some help from Beat Down Klan.  Ki pins Austin with a Springboard leap.

Lashley is headed to the ring, next.

We come back, and see Beat Down Clan in the ring.

We see what they represent, and now are in the driver’s seat and with everything that has happened, the World Title comes back home.

He brings out “The Destroyer” Lashley.

We should be applauding this man, the most dominant World Heavyweight Champion in TNA history.

What we see now are winners, something the fans aren’t used to, at the home of the Jets.

Lashley looks like a champion, the suit, the clothes.  MVP made Lashley look like this.  The World Heavyweight Championship belongs to Lo-Ki, Joe, EY, Kenny King, and MVP.  The title belongs to The Beat Down Clan.

Lashley tells him the title belongs to Lashley.

MVP tells him the title is about what BDC did.

Lashley tells him this isn’t his way, they can do what they want, and he’ll do what he wants.

MVP wants to calm things down.  He tells Lashley when they were both in that other company, Lashley was the one who welcomed MVP with welcome arms, who showed him the way, and for that reason they can go their separate ways.  No hard feelings.

He gives Lashley a hug, and a kiss on the head, which triggers BDC to attack Lashley, with the title.

MVP holds the TNA World Title, with his foot on Lashley.  Blood is on Lashley’s face.

The World Heavyweight Championship does not belong to Lashley, it belongs to the Beat Down Clan.

Next week, Lashley Vs MVP in a street fight, and the return of Feast or Fired match.

The show ends, here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Well, MVP is certainly a good voice to give this new stable, I just don’t like the name.  I prefered Franchise Players, it fits their name better.  But it is what it is.

I also like Josh Matthews, and the job he has done in the 2 weeks he has been with the company.  He and Taz should work well together in the coming weeks, as they get more familiar.

And that also includes this new presentation.  They kept showing footage of Josh and Taz in the booth calling the action, it feels old school meeting new school, although it looks better when the announcers are physically there.

But let’s talk about the matches.  4 big matches took place tonight, with Joe Vs Angle, Wolves Vs The Hardys, Aries Vs Ki, and of course Roode Vs Young.

Speaking of EY, either he’s a part of BDC or not.  I hated that they kept bringing up he isn’t, yet he was there in every segment with BDC.  It was a bit confusing, and I was not a fan of his explanation, but I did like the new approach he took in the match with Roode.  He seemed to have a new direction there, which was fun to watch.

And I absolutely love The Revolution, especially watching the match in the balcony when we saw Hardys Vs Wolves.

And seeing Kong’s entrance again, on top of the confrontation with Havoc was awesome.

2 straight good shows in their debut of Destination America, which makes it a good thing.

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

WWE Thursday Night Smackdown 1/15/15…Daniel Bryan Vs Kane

Tonight, for the first time in 10 years, Smackdown has returned to Thursday nights.  We are in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Byron Saxton is in the ring, interviewing Daniel Bryan.

Daniel is back, at home where he belongs.  He isn’t wearing jeans and a flannel, he is wearing ring gear, because he is ready to fight.

Byron shows Daniel footage from last April, when Kane almost ended Daniel’s career.

Daniel assures Byron he is taking Kane serious.  Daniel knows how dangerous Kane is.  They were rivals, then formed a team, Team Hell No.  Daniel considered Kane a brother, and a friend.  But ever since he went from a mask, to a suit, Kane put Daniel out of commission.

Daniel was being told many times that he couldn’t wrestle again, and this is the real test.  This is where he proves that he can still wrestle.  He fights Kane, and he wins.  Then in 2 weeks, at Royal Rumble, Daniel wins.  Then in 3 months at Wrestlemania, Daniel wins.

Yes!!

Yes!!

Yes!!

Some may think that is a pipe dream, but does Daniel actually think he can do it?  Do the people actually think Daniel can do it?

Yes!!

Yes!!

Yes!!

Behold the king….on your knees, punk.

All of the members of The Authority head to the ring, with Kane coming to the ring.

Kane Vs D-Bry is next.

Daniel is DQ’d when J & J Security come to the ring, and attack Daniel.  But Daniel is able to move away from the attack of Seth Rollins and Big Show.

The Authority come out to the ring, after D-Bry, but Daniel has some backup.

Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns.

HHH makes this official, a 6-man tag match.  Kane, The Big Show, and Rollins Vs D-Bry, Reigns, and Ambrose.

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

Tonight, a 6-man tag match, also IC Title match with Bad News Barrett Vs Sin Cara.

And the announcement of Randy “Macho Man” Savage will be next.

Video of Randy “The Macho Man” Savage being the first inductee into the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame.

“Macho Man” will be inducted by Hulk Hogan.

Bray Wyatt interrupts the fun, calling himself the forbidden fruit.  They tell us to stay away from him.  They were right.  And by the Royal Rumble, it will be too late to run, follow the buzzards.

The Uso’s and Naomi are in action, they will take on The Miz, Mizdow, and Alicia Fox, next.

The Miz, Mizdow, and Alicia wins when The Miz uses Mizdow has body shield from an Uso kick and uses The Skull Crushing Finale to win.

Renee Young is with Roman Reigns.

Tonight, Roman teams up with Daniel Bryan and Dean Ambrose, yet in 2 weeks, they are all involved in the Royal Rumble match.

Roman said in 2 weeks, it will all be business, but tonight it’s about teaming with his brother, and Daniel he has no issue with.

He does have an issue with The Authority, and The Big Show.  Tonight, he takes The Big Show out, believe that.

Paul Heyman is waddling to the ring, next.

We see footage of Seth Rollins curbstomping Brock Lesnar.

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

Brock took a franchise player, like John Cena and suplexed him 16 times.  And now Seth Rollins believed that he would use Brock as an example, so now Brock is pissed off.

Here comes Seth Rollins.

Seth is tired of this talk about people being afraid of Lesnar, and he is sick of people saying Seth is hiding behind The Authority.  He wants Lesnar in the ring, he wants to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase.

But, Rollins know Brock isn’t here.

Rollins wants to curbstomp Heyman then.  Paul asks Seth what would that say, then?

Rollins tells Heyman that if he can’t curbstomp Brock, he would take Heyman out, because then it takes Brock’s mind away.  And he would face 2 dumbbell’s.  He showed that Cena isn’t a threat, and he has already curbstomped Brock two times.  He does it the third time, he walks out as the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

So why shouldn’t he curbstomp Heyman?

Because what makes Rollins think The Authority’s power will continue?  They have already lost their power once before, and they will lose their power again.  Either by a board of directors, by Vince McMahon himself.  So when that happens, what will Rollins have?

Heyman gains more power everyday he is in the WWE.  For one, because his client Brock Lesnar is the current WWE World Champion, and one day, Heyman may have to decide when the future becomes now, and he has Brock protect the new WWE World Champion.

Heyman walks away, and has Seth think.

Nikki Bella Vs Natalya, now.

Natalya wins, with some help from Paige when she slaps Nikki and Nattie makes her tap to the Sharpshooter.

Big Show is with Renee.

Big Show knocked out two superstars Monday night.  He took out Cena and Reigns, and now he entered the Royal Rumble match, and will knock 29 other superstars out.  There isn’t anyone who can stop him.

Kane stops him, and says he entered the Royal Rumble too.

IC Title match, Bad News Barrett Vs Sin Cara is next.

Barrett wins the match with a Bull Hammer Elbow, retaining the IC Title.

Tonight, our main event is a 6-man tag match of Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, and Dean Ambrose Vs Seth Rollins, Kane, and The Big Show.

We see Dean by himself.  When he was a kid, he was a bit of a loner.  That works perfectly for him at the Royal Rumble.  Anyone can win, and anything goes.  So if that can happen, then you can count him in.  But tonight, two of his partners have one thing in common, detest The Authority.  Together, they will win.

Rollins, Kane, and Big Show Vs Bryan, Ambrose, and Reigns.

Bryan, Ambrose, and Reigns win when Bryan hits a high knee for the win, pinning Kane.

Which brings us to HHH coming out and telling us Daniel will get a match with Kane next week.  Spot in the Royal Rumble is on the line, and Daniel’s luck is going to run out.

The night ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The highlight of the night here was seeing Daniel Bryan in the ring.  The show seemed a bit flat to me though, because nothing really changed much, other than Smackdown airing on a new night.

Is Kane Vs Daniel Bryan again, a bright idea?  And why do I have a feeling they are going to screw D-Bry again?  Maybe I just don’t have any confidence in Vince McMahon anymore.  It’s time for him and the company to prove me wrong.

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

WWE NXT 1/14/15 Zayn Vs Neville II

NXT is on a new night, featured exclusively on WWE Network.  I have been watching the program off and on, since I started getting the WWE Network, but for whatever reason hasn’t done any reports.  Until now.  This has been called the best wrestling program on TV, and for now, the future looks bright.  I may not watch this every Wednesday night, but I will start watching it every week, and doing a TV report.

So here we go.

We are at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida, at the NXT Arena.

Rich Brennan, Renee Young, and Alex Riley welcome us to the show.

Tyson Kidd begins the show, he is facing Finn Balor.

This is my first NXT witnessing of the wrestler known as Finn Balor.

Finn wins the match with a devastating double foot stomp, pinning Tyson Kidd.

A great opener to kick off the new night.

Rich, Renee, and A-Ry talk about tonight’s show.  We will see the NXT World Title being defended.  The newly won NXT Champion, Sami Zayn gives Adrian Neville another shot.

Video footage from when Sami won the title back in December.

Also tonight, Charlotte and Natalya take on Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch

But next, it’s Bull Dempsey Vs Baron Corbin.

Bull is standing by with Devinn Taylor.

Bull tells Devinn that he too is undefeated, and Baron will be on the canvas, after Bull gets his hands on him.

Baron wins in quick fashion, with End of Days.

Tonight, Sami Zayn faces Adrian Neville for the NXT World Title.  But next, Charlotte and Natalya Vs Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch.

The team of Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch win when Sasha rolls up Charlotte, and holds her tights.

Coming up next, Zayn Vs Neville, for the NXT World Title.

Prepared to be entertained.

Sami retains the title with a Hella Kick.

After the match, and after Adrian leaves, Kevin Owens attacks Sami again, and we end the show with Kevin leaving the ring.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A great way to start the new night here.  Everything was done for a reason.  The wrestling was very good, and feuds were expanded.  We might see Adrian Neville at some point soon reach WWE.  Not sure what else he can do, and now we will see Zayn and Owens.

The women showcased what they can do too.

The only thing the talent needs a bit more is mic time.  Develop these characters, so that when they are ready to be called up, we won’t have to see much slow mic time.

I loved the main event, a very good story to tell, with champion coming back, after being badly beaten, and finding a way to win, only to have the brass bully come back and inflict more damage.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Like I said in the beginning, not sure when I will watch the shows, but I will do this weekly, and send you my thoughts on the show.

WWE Monday Night Raw 1/12/15…Triple Threat Signing

Tonight, we are in New Orleans, the home of Wrestlemania 30.  We still have no intro video for the show, which bothers me for some reason.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show, when John Cena comes out.

Cena is mad, it seems with The Authority for firing Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback.  He wants the fans to speak out, going to social media and hashtag Authority Sucks.  If that doesn’t work, then at Royal Rumble, Cena will go there, win the WWE World Title, and go home, holding the title hostage, sort of like what Lesnar is doing now.  And vows to not return until The Authority bring back Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback.

This brings back The Authority.

They mock him for taking his ball and going home, calling him selfish and deep down, he is selfish and doesn’t want them back at all.  HHH made this clear, they had consequences if they sided with him, they knew the risk and they still took it.  They hated to fire them, and Cena finally spoke, and said they decided in two seconds.

HHH makes a deal if Cena can win his match tonight, all three men can have their jobs back.  Cena suggests if he is going to be in a Handicap match.  HHH assured him that is not the case, he will have to face Seth Rollins, in a Lumberjack match.

Cena Vs Rollins is up now.

Rollins pins Cena, after Big Show knocks out Cena.  The lumberjacks were all heels that had history with Cena at one point or another.

Tonight, there will be a contract signing for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Royal Rumble.  Also, Daniel Bryan will be here, live on Raw.

We come back backstage, with Stephanie talking with The Uso’s, and here comes Dean Ambrose.

Last week on Smackdown, The Uso’s had some negative remarks about The Authority, and Stephanie told them this isn’t about them, its about Cena.  And please tell Jimmy’s wife, Naomi she has a match with her arm behind her back tonight.

As for Dean, he checked himself out of the hospital last week, and did some abnormal things.  So she has a psychiatrist to see if he is mentally stable to compete in the Royal Rumble.

The Miz and Mizdow share their Global Globe thoughts, maybe one day, George Clooney can win a Slammy?

Dean is on the edge here, and the good therapist tells him to relax, and reflect.  He sets a clock, and the clock keeps ticking when we go to a break.

Smackdown moves to Thursday this Thursday night, with Daniel Bryan’s in-ring return.

The New Day Vs Tyson Kidd and Cesaro is up now.

The New Day win the match, the team os Xavier Woods and Kofi are victorious.

This story was broken earlier by TMZ, Randy “Macho Man” Savage is the first inductee into the 2015 Hall of Fame.

Awesome to hear.  OHHHHHHHHHHHH YEEEEEEEEEEAHHHHHH!!  DIG IT!!

Tonight, Triple Threat Title match contract signing.  Cena, Lesnar, and Rollins in the ring at the same time.

The Indianapolis Colts celebrated their upset victory last night “Ric Flair” style….WOOOOOOOOO.

Next week is a Raw Reunion, featuring the return of Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, and Scott Hall.

The Big Show comes to the ring.

Big Show talks about being a giant, things come easy for him.  The Giant beat Hulk Hogan for the World Heavyweight Championship on his first day, because it was easy.

He calls us losers, because I guess fans were chanting boring.  Deep down inside, we don’t want competition.  He is talking about seeing the new guy at the job, did you give him a fake smile, because he is there to take your spot.  Which brings him to Roman Reigns.

He doesn’t think Roman as competition.  He refers him as the New York Knicks, who are on a 15-game losing streak.  When Show gets his hands on Roman, he knocks him out, then send him back to the seats with Spike Lee, while Show dominates everyone else.

Roman Reigns is a loser, and if we are fans, we are losers too.

Here comes Reigns.

Big Show gets out of the ring, and walks up the ramp.

Reigns isn’t a threat to Show, because he doesn’t want his spot.  Reigns remembers Show winning the WCW World Title, he was 12 years old, at the time.

Reigns now gives Show a story, about Roman Reigns and The Beanstalk.

Vince McMahon wrote another cheesy promo for Roman.

Now comes Reigns’ opponent, Luke Harper.

Reigns wins a competitive match with a spear.  Big Show assaults Reigns, and knocks him out,

Earlier tonight, John Cena had a chance to win back Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback’s job, but he loses to Rollins in a Lumberjack Match.

Tonight, a WWE World Heavyweight Championship contract signing between Cena, Rollins, and Lesnar.

Also, Daniel Bryam is here tonight and next, it will be Naomi, wrestling with one arm behind her back facing Alicia Fox.

More from The Miz and Mizdow.

Naomi Vs Alicia Fox, now.

Alicia wins the match, with a kick to the head, followed by an axe kick.

More drama with Dean Ambrose and the therapist.  Word associations with pictures.

HHH- Irritable Balve Syndrome.

Rollins- Scumbag

Reigns- Brotha

Kane- Toothpaste

Hacksaw Jim Duggan- HOOOOOOOOOOOO

Stephanie- HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Now that was funny.

We are live in new Orleans, and we now hear from the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman.  And it is with great pleasure he returns to the scene of the crime.  282 days ago, millions of people laid witness to this….

The streak was conquered, and we see footage of this.

The death of a myth, the end of a legacy, the rise of a beast.  It all happened in one moment, when The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at Wrestlemania was conquered by his client, Brock Lesnar.

His client does not want to talk about the past, but his client held the NCAA Division I Heavyweight Championship, the undisputed UFC World Title, and the WWE World Heavyweight Title.  Now it’s tough to proclaim 2 of those 3, but his client has all 3.

Heyman loves to talk about the past, which means he has great glee to tell us his client, Brock Lesnar conquered The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at Wrestlemania.  It burns the fans, but it’s still a reality.

Heyman talks about the marketing of Then, Now, and Forever, yet the reality is Brock Lesnar.

The Undertaker’s Undefeated Streak at Wrestlemania will last forever, fantasy.  The reality?  Brock Lesnar conquered the Undefeated streak at Wrestlemania.  John Cena’s flag of Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect will last forever.  That’s fantasy, Brock Lesnar is the reality.

Now, Seth Rollins is being called the future of WWE, and he has been added to the Triple Threat match at Royal Rumble.  Tonight, a contract signing, all three men, all at the same time.  His client, Brock Lesnar will explain the difference between fantasy and reality, face to face to curbstomping face.

Tonight, “Macho Man” Randy Savage is expected to be announced as the first inductee into the 2015 Hall of Fame.

More impersonations from the WWE wrestlers.

The Miz Vs Jey Uso, one on one.

The Miz, with some unintentional interference by Mizdow, The Miz wins with a Skull Crushing Finale.

Next Monday, the WWE Network is coming to the UK.

Daniel Bryan is next.

Daniel Bryan heads to the ring.

Last April, Daniel won the WWE World Title at Wrestlemania 30, in New Orleans.

He still gets such a unique ovation, he needs to win the Rumble.

Daniel feels something big happened the last time he was in New Orleans, but he can’t remember what it was.  Oh yeah, he won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of Wrestlemania.

Yes!!

Yes!!

Yes!!

2 weeks ago, he declared his intentions of entering the Royal Rumble.  But it’s only fitting to say he is going to win the Royal Rumble match, and main event this year’s Wrestlemania.

And he doesn’t care what The Authority will say.

Enter Stephanie McMahon.

She offers him a copy of WWE Fit series on DVD, featuring Stephanie.  For some reason, Daniel doesn’t want it.

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Stephanie reminds him that after Daniel won the title, reality came crashing down.  And this is what she remembers.

Footage of Kane destroying Daniel, last April.

Stephanie tells Daniel a true champion must find a way to stay on top.  He has been gone for 8 months, the fans believe in him, Brie believes in him, but does he truly believe in himself?  Deep down in his heart, does he believe in himself?

Yes!!

Yes!!

Yes!!

Go ahead Steph, we know she wants to get involved in the Yes Movement….HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Daniel is an average joe, but he never was born with a silver spoon in her mouth growing up.  He has worked, crawled, scratched his way to the top, and he will still keep on fighting, just to prove her wrong, yet again.

People with silver spoons, as he says, have higher education, which means you must use your head.  Daniel Bryan’s first match won’t be at Royal Rumble.  It will be this Thursday on Smackdown, against a man Daniel is very familiar with….

Kane.

The two men start to fight, and Daniel does a flying tope through the ropes.

Daniel survived this test, this Thursday night, it continues.

Seth Rollins is backstage with J & J Security, bragging about pinning Cena.  He is confronted by Brock Lesnar.

Brock said he is the man who pinned Cena tonight?  He is the weasel who weasels his way into the World Title match?

Seth is the future of WWE, and Brock tells him he is the future when Brock says he can be.

Heyman intervenes, and says while it’s impressive Seth pinned Cena, maybe they can work again down the road, but at Royal Rumble, they face each other for the WWE World Title.  Perhaps they can work together to take Cena out, and face each other?

Official contract signing is tonight.

Paige Vs Brie Bella, now.

Brie picks up the win when Tyson Kidd went up the apron to momentarily distract Paige.

After the match, Paige slaps Tyson, and Natalya smiles about it.

John Cena is in his locker room, beside himself.  Later tonight, we will have a Triple Threat contract signing.

Last Monday night, Ambrose Vs Wyatt in an Ambulance Match.

A message from Wyatt now.

Wyatt has entered The Royal Rumble match.  Whatever he does next will change our world, forever.  Some will laugh, some will cry, and others will have no other choice but to see what they saw.  The animal will be set free from his cage forever.

Run!!

It’s official, Randy “Macho Man” Savage is the first member to be inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame.

We now see the amazing video.

Hulk Hogan will induct him, and Hulk Hogan will induct him.

It’s a great thing to hear, just too bad he isn’t living to speak.

The Ascension comes to the ring.

They need a manager to speak for them.

They are facing 2 ham and eggers.

The Fall of Man, match is done.

Dean Ambrose is still in therapy session, but now the therapist is crying over his childhood.  Ambrose is here for him.  Just sign these papers, and he will make sure the doctor gets the help he needs.

He signs the papers, and calls the therapist a spineless, cockroach and yes it is weird that he sits down to pee.

Next week, Raw Reunion with Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, and Scott Hall will be here.

Rusev and “The Ravishing Russian” Lana are in the ring.

Rusev was supposed to be facing Ryback, but he got canned.  She wants to thank The Authority for firing him.  She also wants to thank John Cena for failing to bring Ryback back tonight.  Another typical American who failed at their job.

Shuddap!!

Maybe Ryback can get a job at a deli, or something like that.

Rusev tells us Ryback is a stupid American, who doesn’t deserve to have a job here, and neither does John Cena.  At Royal Rumble, he was going to throw Ryback over the top rope, but….

Here comes Dean Ambrose, and it looks like we have a match, next.

Rusev wins the match, with a referee stoppage with Ambrose’s knee.  Rusev then lays out Ambrose with a kick to the head.

Triple Threat contract signing is next.

This Thursday on Smackdown, Daniel Bryan will face Kane.

Many wrestling shows are changing nights, it seems.

The Authority, Stephanie’s 4th segment, and Hunter’s 2nd if you’re keeping score at home.

They bring out Seth Rollins first.

Next comes John Cena.

And the WWE World Champion, Brock Lesnar comes out last.

Heyman has the mic, and he loves to tell us about the scorecard.  As much as he would love to get credit for bringing back The Authority, that man Seth Rollins was behind that.

The plan was backed by Paul Heyman, to bring back a desperate Authority.  And that plan is bad for John Cena, and a bad plan for John Cena is good for Brock Lesnar.

And what is good for Brock Lesnar is best for business.

Rollins appreciates the love, but Heyman wasn’t done yet.

Brock Lesnar has conquered everything in his path, and that includes everything that is in front of Brock at Royal Rumble.  That is the end of his statement.

Seth asks Heyman if he’s upset this was turned to a Triple Threat match.

Yes, because this could be a double cross.  The WWE World Champion does not have to be pinned to lose the title.

Rollins confirms that is a possibility, in any Triple Threat match.

But Brock has a list of accomplishments that is incomparable.  Eat, sleep, conquer.  Are you saying Brock can’t handle a Triple Threat match?

No, that doesn’t mean that, and Rollins isn’t through talking yet.

Seth doesn’t have Brock’s accomplishments, but Brock doesn’t have Rollins’ accomplishments either.  He created The Shield, and dismantled it.  He also won Money in the Bank ladder match, he made sure that Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan, and Ryback still don’t have jobs, by pinning John Cena earlier tonight.

And at the Royal Rumble, whether they like it or not, it’s plan A, or plan B.  Seth Rollins is walking out as WWE World Champion.

Rollins signs the contract.

Brock takes the mic from Heyman.  Lesnar conquered The Undertaker.  He conquered HHH, he conquered Cena, and he damn sure will conquer Rollins.

Cena grabs the mic and tells Brock that he doesn’t have to be pinned, but he will be pinned.  HHH didn’t do Rollins any favor, because the two of them will kick Seth’s ass, then Brock will be pinned.

Cena goats Lesnar to sign the contract, after he did that.

Rollins tells Cena’s plans haven’t seemed to be working lately.  He tried to keep The Authority out of the WWE.  He failed in bringing back Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan and strike 3 will come when he fails to win the WWE World Title.

Rollins goes after Cena.  Brock suplexes Cena and Rollins.  Cena gives Lesnar an AA through a table.  But Rollins curbstomps both Cena and Brock to end the segment, and the night.

This was Seth Rollins night, as it should be.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A much better show this week, but the majority of it had to do with Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and the great news of Randy “Macho Man” Savage being inducted, something that should have been done a long time ago.

It will be curious to see what happens with Raw Reunion, and we are 13 days away from Royal Rumble.  Who will be the one?  I don’t think Roman Reigns is doing himself any favors with these awful promos Vince is writing for him.

What did you think of the show?  Send me your thoughts, and a big shout-out to the Ohio State Buckeyes for beating Oregon Ducks in winning the National Championship in College Football.

Impact Wrestling 1/7/15…A New Day Has Begun

Tonight, Impact Wrestling has found a new home, inside Destination America.  We are live in New York City, The Hammerstein Ballroom, to be exact.  If you don’t have Destination America, keep checking here throughout the night of the ongoing events.

Impact Wrestling, in five minutes.

A new video is playing of the wrestlers ready for tonight’s show.  This is New York City, the city that never sleeps.

We begin the night with Lashley and Roode going face to face, with the entire Impact Wrestlers outside.  Kenny King nails a cheap shot in to seek and destroy, and a fight breaks out, and into the building.

A big brawl was continuing, and Kurt Angle comes out.  He tells security this is New York City, this is Impact Wrestling.  Let’s continue the fight.  He asks for Lo-Ki.  He will defend his X-Division Title tonight.  Taryn Terrell will defend her title tonight.  Storm and Abyss will defend their tag titles tonight.

And tonight, it’s Roode Vs Lashley III.  The fans expect this to be the match of the year, and he does too.

MVP interrupts the announcement Kurt was going to say, and the crowd told him to shut up, except clearing saying shut the fuck up.

MVP goats him into hitting MVP from behind, but he won’t.  It’s because Kurt needs this job to take care of his kids and wife.  MVP studied Kurt over his career, he is a shell of his former self and now wears a tie and a suit.  He’s done.

Kurt admits he is done, as a Director of Operations.  Because now, he is a performer, and after he gave us the matches tonight, he wants a match against MVP.  That match is a streetfight, and it’s now.

Kurt Vs MVP is up now.

Kurt wins the match with an Angle Slam.  The crowd chants you still got it.

And might I add, Josh Matthews is with us with Taz tonight in commentary.

Tonight, all the champions defend their titles.  Lo-Ki will wrestle, as will Taryn Terrell, as will The Revolution, and of course, Bobby Roode faces Lashley.

MVP is talking with Kenny King backstage, wanting to know where Kenny was at, watching his back.  He is now going to talk with Lashley, reminding him why was champion.

Josh and Taz officially welcome us.

Backstage, we see various wrestlers talking, stage people talking.

Crazzy Steve is on camera, and we have EC3 and Tyrus interrupting.  Nobody is seeing the new All-American Hardcore ICON?  He and Tyrus made resolutions, and told Spud he is going to take the whole thing.

Mike Tenay will be a part of Impact Unlocked.  He is going to share interviews, including one he conducted with “Cowboy” James Storm, from earlier today.

The Revolution, James Storm and Abyss are in action, now.

They are facing The Wolves, for the Tag Titles.

The Hardy’s come out to watch this match, and here we go.

The Revolution retains their titles with a Last Call Superkick.  The Revolution tried to interfere, but The Hardys watch The Wolves’ back, as they have a face to face after the loss.

EC3 is up next.

Earlier tonight, Kurt Angle defeated MVP in a streetfight.  Backstage, MVP tells Lashley he owes everything to MVP.  Lashley grabs him by the throat and says this isn’t about MVP, this is about Lashley getting his title back.

MVP tells Kenny let’s leave, and he tells him to good luck in his title match, champ.

Jeremy Borash is here to thank the fans, and its an honor to be here with them.

Here comes EC3.

EC3 tells us he is undefeated in 15 months, he has dominated TNA, and 2015 is the year he becomes the World Heavyweight Champion.  It’s all fact.

EC3 calls out Rockstar Spud, so he can finish the job, but he comes out already beaten.  Tyrus was beating him down beforehand, and when he comes to the ring, Borash tries to stand up for Spud.  Spud slaps EC3, and Tyrus nails him.  So now we have some clippers, and EC3 clips off some of his hair.

MVP and Kenny King are done with Lashley, it’s time they go back to their roots.

Roode Vs Lashley III, we see footage from Roode Vs Lashley II.

X-Division Title match is up now.

A nice cideo package on the X-Division Title and its history.  Lo-Ki knows, and respects its lineage.

Lo-Ki Vs Austin Aries is up now.

Aries wins the match with a Brainbuster to become new X-Division Champion.

Taryn Terrell will defend her Knockout Title in a Knockout Battle Royal, next.

Before the Knockout Title match, DJZ and Jessie introduce us to the man who finished an “Amazing Race”, Robbie E.

Robbie claims that he didn’t win a million dollars, but it wasn’t his fault.  It was his ex-girlfriend, Brooke’s fault.

Taryn Terrell is here, wearing a new Knockout Championship.

The match begins.

Taryn wins, somehow throwing over Gail Kim, accidentally, and throwing over Havoc.  Havoc went after Taryn after the match.  Brooke also made an appearance, going after Robbie for his comments.

The light goes out, and here comes…..

Awesome Kong!!!!!

Kong and Havoc go face to face, but Havoc steps aside when the referee stepped in, and is met with a Chokeslam from Kong.

I love her music too, welcome back Kong.

The champion, and challenger make their way to the ring.  Roode Vs Lashley III is next.

Our main event, Roode Vs Lashley III is now.

MVP, Kenny King, and 2 masked men show up during this match.  They deck the referee, nail Kurt Angle.  The men reveal themselves to be Lo-Ki and Samoa Joe.

Eric Young comes in with a chair, but he nails Roode with it and Lashley hits a spear.

New World Champion as Lashley becomes a 2-time champion, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Wow, everything was thrown out there for us.  I figured they would end the show with a big twist, and they did.  I am intrigued at the idea of Joe, Ki, and EY all together, as heels.  But why?  We will find out next week.

It was great to see Awesome Kong back, she looked good and adds another layer in the Knockouts Division.

Also, a great opening video, with some West Side Story angle to it, in New York City.

We also had 2 title changes.  Austin Aries winning the X-Division Title, and Lashley winning the World Title.

And welcome to TNA Josh Matthews.  He sounded nervous, but slid right in as the show went on, and he knew his history.  TNA is a great place for Josh to really hone in his craft, and we shouldn’t hear too many jokes about how boring matches, like Cole seemed to do with Josh.

Impact Wrestling returns next Friday night, so we will continue on with the Impact Adventures then.

What did you think of the show?  Did you like its Destination America debut?  Share your thoughts.

WWE Monday Night Raw 1/5/15…First Raw Of The Year

Happy New Year everyone, I hope you had a great holiday, and is ready to go.  This is the first Raw of 2015, and that means they are going to start pushing Royal Rumble, and possibly the first buildup to Wrestlemania.

Jerry “The King” Lawler is not with us tonight, he has a case of diverticulitis.  Hopefully he comes back soon, and gets better.  Booker T will be doing the color commentary, sucka.

Raw in 10 minutes.

We show footage of last week when John Cena was forced to bring back The Authority.

Hey, we have music now with Raw.  Tonight is the night.

We are live in Corpus Cristi, Texas.

The ring is filled with superstars and divas.

Cena tells us The Authority are back in power, and their first order of business was to get the superstars surrounding the ring so they can address them.

But Cena apologizes to his co-workers and the fans.  He went back on his word, and didn’t want to.  He thought Rollins was bluffing at first, but he had to put the well-being of his friend ahead of The Authority, and he promises us that 2015 will be difficult.

On your knees, Punk….

Here come The Authority.

They had a great new year, because they knew they were coming back telling us what is best for business.

HHH reminds us we were all begging for them to come back.

HHH mocks the other choices for guest hosts, with Seth Green was good.

Due to one man, the ship has righted its course, and that is because of one man.  The “future” of WWE.  That one man we owe our life to, that one man is Seth Rollins.

Seth has some words, and the crowd tells him he sold out.

He just wants to say hello to the man in yellow.  He wishes John a very Happy New Year.

HHH tells Seth the WWE owes him a debt of gratitude they can never pay.  As a gratitude of thank you, they will give him a chance to make history.  At Royal Rumble, John Cena will face Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Title, but now that is a Triple Threat match.  At Royal Rumble, it will be Cena Vs Lesnar Vs Rollins, for the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

Stephanie tells Cena they owe him gratitude too, because he showed his true colors last week, that deep down inside he knows what is best for business.

So, tonight it will be John Cena Appreciation Night.

It’s a mandatory that Cena will be there tonight, and she guarantees The Authority will have a stamp in this presentation.

HHH tells everyone else that this is a new era in The Authority, and everyone will get what they put out into it, they will all get what they deserve, and it starts tonight.

Dolph Ziggler will defend his Intercontinental Title against a man who really never lost it, Bad News Barrett.

That match is next.

Ziggler wins in a very quick match with a rollup.  Barrett attacks Ziggler, and throws him out of the ring.

I don’t understand this, unless Barrett was being used by The Authority because Ziggler won at Survivor Series.  Nobody is coming out to help.

Now comes Kane.

Kane apologizes, because they failed to mention this was a two out of three falls match.

Fall two begins, now.

Wasteland, Ziggler is pinned for fall two.

Kane distracted Ziggler for a moment, Bull Hammer.  Barrett is the new IC Champion.

A moment for Cena was his debut in 2002 when he pinned Kurt Angle, because of ruthless aggression, and The Undertaker showed him respect, shaking his hand.

Those were the days.

Tonight, Roman reigns Vs The Big Show.

We see footage from last week on Raw, when Big Show buried the announce table on Reigns.  But this past Friday night, Reigns returned the favor with the announce table.

Renee Young is with Roman Reigns.

What can we expect tonight?  Reigns doesn’t know what to expect, but he knows what Big Show can expect.  A man faster than a speeding bullet, a man faster than can leap over a tall building.  A man who is more powerful than a locomotive.  Big Show can expect Reigns.

Wyatt asks what Ambrose’s new year’s resolution.  To visit his prisoned father?  One thing is for sure, Ambrose’s suffering ends tonight, when Wyatt slams that ambulance door, and Dean rides into the sunset.  Tonight, Ambrose joins Wyatt.

Run!!

The Ascension is in the ring.

And they have the mic.  This is not good.

They say Demolition is one of the great tag teams, and even The Road Warriors.

And just like that, they call The Road warriors a joke, and you can hear a pin drop.

They are facing two ham and eggers, and win the match.

Lana and Rusev tell us Russia’s Christmas is in 2 days, and there is one man who can bring true peace and prosperity, and that man is Vladimir Putin.

Moving on, Roman Reigns Vs The Big Show is now.

Another Cena moment in 2005 when Cena beat JBL for the WWE Title at Wrestlemania 21.

Big Show is DQ’d nailing Reigns with a steel step.

Reigns spears Big Show, with the steel steps nailing Show.

Earlier tonight, The Authority are telling us tonight is John Cena Appreciation Night, and at Royal Rumble, it will be a Triple Threat for WWE World Title of Cena Vs Lesnar Vs Rollins.

Smackdown is moving to Thursday nights.

Starting January 15th.

Nikki Bella Vs Natalya is up now in a non-title match.

Paige comes out to the ring, to show support for Nattie.

Paige throws Brie into the barricade, and Natalya rolls Nikki up for the win.

Nikki attacks Natalya after the match, and Paige helps out Natalya.

Dean Ambrose is backstage.

He didn’t make any resolutions, all he cares about is kicking Wyatt’s ass and putting him into the ambulance.  There is no love lost between them, this match will be brutal.  It will be ugly, it’s the way Dean lives life, and a way he will end Wyatt’s life.

That match is next.

I guess the match isn’t next, instead its Erick Rowan Vs Luke Harper.

We have J & J Security making an appearance, as referees.

Luke Harper hits his Lariant, and the match is done.  J & J Security attack him after the match, and lay out Rowan.

Another John Cena moment was the night he was traded to Raw.

Tonight, it’s John Cena Appreciation Night.

Last Monday, The Uso’s became the new Tag Team Champions.  Later tonight, a 6 person match with The Uso’s and Naomi Vs The Miz, Mizdow, and Alicia Fox.

So Alicia Fox is a heel again, after turning face a month ago.

And she made it official earlier tonight when she attacks Naomi.

Ambrose Vs Wyatt video,

Ambulance Match is up next.

In a surprise twist, Wyatt wins the match, putting Ambrose in an Ambulance, after 2 Sister Abigails.  A great, fun match but a questionable decision.

Holy shit, we see the very same clip for the third time, with The Authority and John Cena.

We get it, tonight is John Cena Appreciation Night.

Seth Rollins will be a guest on Miz TV this Friday night on Smackdown.

But now, it’s a 6-person tag match.  The Uso’s and Naomi Vs The Miz, Mizdow, and Foxxy.

Miz wins the match, rolling the tights.

Tonight, “The Big Guy” Ryback will face Seth Rollins, next.

Oh wait, Kane comes out and says this is a Handicap match, and Ryback’s opponents are Rollins and Kane.

Tomorrow night on Main Event. Paige Vs Nikki Bella for the Divas Title.

It’s a new day for Adam Rose I guess, because it’s Adam Rose Vs Big E.

Adam is DQ’d when 2 Rosebuds in masks attacked The New Day. They reveal themselves as Tyson Kidd and Cesaro.

The Authority are ready for John Cena Appreciation Night.

Stephanie tells us John Cena knows what is best for business, bringing back The Authority. So let’s bring Cena out.

Here he comes.

HHH tries to get the crowd behind John, but it’s not working.

And for some reason, we are seeing footage from last week, when John brought them back.

Stephanie calls John her hero. HHH brings up their past, when HHH didn’t think Cena had it in him when he first started. Then Cena changed, and HHH saw it in him, before even Cena did. Then he changed last week, and perhaps he knows that the hustle, loyalty, and respect isn’t what’s best for business. Doing things for business is what is best.

Cena asked him if he’s done, and HHH said he’s just getting started. He wants to bring out people who if they don’t appreciate Cena now, will appreciate him at the end.

Team Cena comes to the ring. Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, and Erick Rowan all come out.

HHH makes this clear, these are the three men who fought against The Authority. So therefore, consequences need to be made, even though Team Cena won at Survivor Series, but hey, we need to go with details here, dammit.

So how about 30 day suspension for Rowan, since he came into this late?

And for Ryback, as Stephanie said, he should be suspended for 60 days, since he turned his back on The Authority.

But Ziggler won at Survivor Series. So Dolph himself suggests a 90 day suspension.

Steph and HHH convene about this, go all the way to the ramp, and fire them all. And they all have John Cena to thank for that.

We end the show with confetti, and hearing Lex Luger’s old “Real American” theme song, which was funny. But the three men who were fired look completely like goofs here, and I am baffled by this.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

2014 was one of the worst years I have seen with WWE, and 2015 didn’t begin so well either.

Vince McMahon has truly lost his touch, completely.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 12/29/14…An E & C New Year

We see footage from 2011 when Edge had to retire, but tonight, his best friend, Christian will be guest hosting with him.

Raw starts now.

We are live in Washington, D.C.  Tony Chimmel gives us the introduction for Edge and Christian.  Because he knows how to give us “The Rated-R Superstaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar”

E & C come out.

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

Christian thinks they should end 2014 with a bang, and do it E & C style.

Christian suggests they do a Peep Show, but Edge thinks they should do a Cutting Edge.  Christian likes the Peep Show.

7-time Tag Team champions, let’s show why they are the best tag team in the entire company, so how about a Cutting Edge Peep Show.

Their first guest being the self-proclaimed “Future” of WWE, Seth Rollins.

The fans don’t like Rollins, so Edge makes the announcement of Rollins Vs Roman Reigns tonight.

The crowd cheers that.

Okay, Christian proposes Rusev facing….Dolph Ziggler, in a Champion Vs Champion match….naked.

The crowd boos that.

How about Lana?

That’s better, but Christian wants to give it one more chance, we will hear from Daniel Bryan.

Daniel will be talking about his future, later tonight.

So for Washington D.C. crowd, how about a 5-second….

Here comes the pain.

The WWE World Champion graces us his presence, with Edge and Christian still in the ring.

Ladies and gentlemen….peeps and Edgeheads.  His name is Paul Heyman, and he can’t wonder why a man with a broken neck who can’t wrestle again, and a man who has had many concussions he can’t compete in the ring again would be swimming in the shark with the most destructive predator of them all, BRRROOOOCK LESNARRRR!!

Make your move, but one bad move, and either man can end up a polemic.  But his client will not harm either one.  He is a conqueror, and he would rather destroy someone like Edge’s hero, John Cena.

Because the final conflict will take place at Royal Rumble.

Enter John Cena.

We get the usual Let’s go Cena, and Cena sucks chants.

The only reason Cena doesn’t knock him out is he doesn’t want Brock to limp into Royal Rumble with any excuse.  He has a gift for Paul Heyman.

He grabs Heyman by the tie, and this sends Lesnar to go after him, but Cena counters with an AA, but Brock slips out of it, and exits the ring.

Coming up next, it will be Champion Vs Champion.  Rusev Vs Ziggler.

Ziggler wins by DQ when Rusev just goes nuts, choking out Ziggler.

Feed Me More, in comes Ryback, out goes Rusev after a Meathook Clothesline.

Tonight, Tag Team Title match will be set.  The Uso’s Vs The Miz and Mizdow.

We come back, Ryback is still in the ring.

He wants to address the fans.  His first live WWE event, he was 12 and became a special ring bell-ringer.  He knew from that day he would be a WWE superstar.  He started his career in 2004 on WWE’s Tough Enough as The Silverback.

They show footage of Ryback losing the competition.  Ryback was so ashamed he wouldn’t talk to his family in a year.  He picked up a job at a BBQ place, worked for 12 hours a day, and came home to an empty house.  He started to read a book called “The Secret”, and he went back to wrestling.  He came back in 2010 as a little group called The Nexus.

They show footage.

He was 28 years old, had his dream job, but then he was in Hawaii, broke his leg.  He shows us his scar, and knows how lucky he is to be in the WWE.

After 3 unsuccessful surgeries, and doctors would tell him he would never wrestle again, in 2012 he returned.

Footage is shown of Ryback kicking ass.

So here he stands today, which brings him to Rusev.  This won’t be a USA Vs Russia thing, this is a big guy kicking the ass of another big guy thing.  He takes all of the negative things people say about him, and he looks at Rusev, and says….

Feed Me More!!

I love that promo.

Tonight, Reigns Vs Rollins.  Also a Cutting Edge Peep Show, with Edge and Christian’s guest being Seth Rollins.

We come back to see Natalya Vs Nikki Bella in a non-title match.

Natalya is distracted by Tyson Kidd, who “accidentally” catches Nikki when Nattie tries to throw her out of the ring.

Nikki wins with a Rack Attack.

The Miz and Mizdow are backstage, when Naomi hugs The Miz.  She is going to meet with the casting agent The Miz gave.  She wants to thank him, and wishes him good luck in his match.

Tag Team Title match is up next.

The Uso’s Vs The Miz and Mizdow for Tag Team gold now.

The Uso’s become 2-time Tag Team Champions, winning with a double kick and a Uso Splash, Jimmy pinning The Miz.

Naomi comes out to celebrate with The Uso’s. Jimmy reveals to the world that they set up The Miz the entire time, and made up the story with the agent, to get back at Miz.

Okay, moving on.

We see a video of The Shield and the history Reigns and Rollins has together.

Tonight, Rollins Vs Reigns.

We will also hear from Daniel Bryan tonight, who has an announcement to make concerning his career. Speculation is he will retire.

When we come back, we hear from Cesaro.

2014 was supposed to be his year. He won Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Wrestlemania. But now, the WWE brass tells him he doesn’t connect with the WWE fans. He tells us he doesn’t care to, all he wants to do is kick ass, and nobody in the back can do what he does. He challenges anyone in the back to prove him wrong.

Enter Bad News Barrett.

Barrett tells him he has a Bull Hammer waiting for him.

Cesaro vs Bad News Barrett, and Barrett wins with a Bull Hammer.

While Cesaro’s promo was awesome, it’s truly baffling why he said that, only to lose.

Tonight, Seth Rollins will be a guest of The Cutting Edge Peep Show.

The Ascension makes their WWE debut

Luke Harper tells us that people throw him away like he’s trash. Tonight, he will show us the nightmare that comes alive.

Harper Vs Jack Swagger, now.

Harper picks up the win with his big clothesline.

Earlier tonight, Cena and Lesnar had a confrontation.

Cena is backstage with Edge and Christian, talking about Edge winning the WWE Title for the first time, now the two have words and Christian chimes in.

Cena tells Edge they were two guy who people they would never amount to anything in this business, and they proved others wrong. Edge was the one guy who always believed in Cena and for that, he will always appreciate him.

They hug, and Cena walks away.

Reigns Vs Rollins is up now.

The Big Show came out for commentary, and we see the match ends in a DQ, with Show taking out Reigns, and then throwing him over the announce table, shove the table over his leg.

EMTs are checking in on Reigns when we go to a break.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw. Seth Rollins thanks The Big Show for having his back. Seth is so happy, he instructs J & J Security to tell Cena he will have a toast with him on Cutting Edge Peep Show.

We see footage now with Bray Wyatt vs Dean Ambrose.

Next Monday, the first Raw of 2015 will give us Ambrose Vs Wyatt in an Ambulance Match.

Everything in life must come full circle, as Wyatt shows up on the screen, inside an ambulance. This is where their journey ends, it’s too late for Ambrose. They will not resuscitate, because Ambrose is already dead. Wyatt has his soul, as he closes the door and the ambulance is being sent out.

Daniel Bryan’s crossroad is next.

Santino Marella is throwing a party on The Main Event tomorrow night.

Here comes Daniel Bryan.

It’s an honor for Daniel to be here for the last Raw of 2014. But it’s always an honor to being in the ring all of the time. Who would have thought someone like him could defeat HHH, and become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion at Wrestlemania. 5 days later, he married the greatest woman ever. Then 2 days after they came back from their honeymoon, his dad died, and he couldn’t be there for him. He was in the ring. Then he had a defining neck surgery, and he became depressed, because he couldn’t compete in the ring. Seeing Dolph Ziggler pin Seth Rollins at Survivor Series, to send home The Authority. He was very happy, but he couldn’t be here. He has met with friends, he has met with family, he even talked to Edge about career threatening surgery. And you come to a decision that is hard to do. He requested this time to share information with us.

Is his career over?

No….That is not the announcement he is here to make. He is ready to compete, he is ready to fight. So will he be in the 2015 Royal Rumble?

Yes!!

Yes!!

Yes!!

Very glad to hear that, I am ready for that.

Coming up tonight, Seth Rollins will toast John Cena at the Cutting Edge Peep Show.

The E & C kazoo is back, but The Miz and Mizdow interrupt.

Miz is demanding a Tag Title rematch tonight. E & C grants that match, but it’s not for the Tag Titles. It’s not The Uso’s, but it’s next.

This Friday on Smackdown, The Cutting Edge Peep Show, with E & C’s guests being Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt.

The Miz and Mizdow’s opponent?

The Ascension.

The Ascension win, with what is called Fall of Man, a variation of Total Elimination.

I like them, but the crowd crapped on them, not a good debut.

Seth Rollins is coming out, but Renee Young wants to confirm that Seth invited Cena to come out for a New Year’s toast, and Seth confirms it. But he is feeling so good, he wants Brock Lesnar to come out too.

That segment is up next.

Next week, Ambrose Vs Wyatt in an Ambulance Match.

Cutting Edge Peep Show is up now.

This set reeks of total awesomeness. They now introduce Seth Rollins.

Seth is smiling, with J & J Security holding the champagne glasses. Seth tells them he is honored to be the first guest of The Cutting Edge Peep Show. Rollins is honored to be in the same ring as these two, who pioneered TLC matches. They had that memorable feud with The Hardy’s and Dudley Boyz.

They aren’t buying this.

But who has had a better year than Seth Rollins? He showcased the rose of The Shield, he broke up The Shield. He became Mr. Money in the Bank. He is the future of WWE, who has had a better year than Seth?

John Cena?

Dolph Ziggler?

Daniel Bryan?

Sting?

“The doctor of style”, Slick.

He was a jive soul bro, a jive soul bro, always lying to his friends.

Seth wants to forget about the last month, he truly wants to put all of that behind him, and celebrate the future. He calls for The Big Show to come out.

Near year, new us.

There is one other guy Rollins wants to bring out. A man who has led him to see the error of his ways, come on out John Cena.

Cena doesn’t come out.

Edge tries to console Seth, but Rollins doesn’t want to hear it. He is better than Edge can ever be, and Edge disagrees with that.

Rollins asked Cena to come out, because he wants something from John.

Come out here John.

No Cena.

He doesn’t come out here, and he is forced to do something he doesn’t want to do. But he is forcing this, and nails Christian in the stomach with the briefcase.

Edge gets right into Rollins’ face, and Big Show grabs Edge’s throat, forces him to kneel down. Ready for a Curbstomp, and out comes Cena.

Rollins tells Cena he knows what he wants from Cena, and if he doesn’t give it to him, Rollins will break Edge’s neck.

Cena takes his shirt off, but Seth dares him to come into the ring, and he will snap that neck.

Remember John, this is a husband, this is a father. He will deny Edge’s opportunity to be with his family. Give Seth what he wants. If he doesn’t believe Seth, he is Mr. Hustle, loyalty, and respect. I bet Edge wishes John could come out to save him. Who is he John? Is he the phony Rollins has been saying for months, or is he the real deal?

John, bring The Authority back.

If he doesn’t, he swears he will break his neck. Don’t test him, or Seth will break his neck.

Cena has made Rollins’ life a living hell since November.

Cena tells him to stop, and agrees to bringing back The Authority.

Cena confirms this, he will bring back The Authority.

Oh damn, they are back.

Thank you, but you know Rollins better than that, he will kill him anyway. Cena decks Rollins, but Big Show stops Cena.

Curbstomps Cena.

The show ends with Rollins and Big Show celebrating this fact….The Authority are back.

Heyman and Lesnar shows up, with Heyman shaking hands with Rollins.

And just like that, The Authority show up, with champagne. Wow, that was a fast charter flight.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Stipulations mean absolutely nothing in WWE, I guess. So why should this matter anymore? What was a great Raw ended in such crap. So now we will see The Authority gloat, while the hand-picked team they selected for Survivor Series lost. So great call guys.

I am happy Daniel Bryan is back, but the ending of this show just sucked. And that is just a glowing example of how bad 2014 has been for WWE.

I am not ending this on a sour note, so allow me to wish all of you a very Happy New Year’s day, and may 2015 be better and glorious than 2014 was.

Feel free to share me your thoughts about the show, and wrestling in general. You can follow me on Twitter @KevinGillman, and on Facebook at Kevin Andrew Gillman.

WWE Monday Night Raw 12/22/14…A Ho-Ho-Hogan Christmas

Tonight, we are in Minneapolis, with the return of “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and a Piper’s Pit, with Piper’s guest being Rusev.  We will also have a one on one match with Big Show Vs Roman Reigns, and a Miracle on 34th Streetfight between Dean Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt.

Santa Hogan comes out to kick the show off, with Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show.

The Minnesota fans chant for Hogan, but Hogan tell us it’s “Ho-Ho-” Hogan.

We will see The Big Show face Roman Reigns, and we’ll see the “cookie” Bray Wyatt face “The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose in a Miracle on 34th Street fight, brother.

Enter John Cena.

Cena tells us it’s “Ho-Ho-Hogan” brother.  The next biggest legend since Santa Claus.  Cena gives us some jokes, but now it’s time to get serious.

We see footage from last week, when Brock Lesnar came out to help Seth Rollins beat John Cena in a steel cage match.

Cena wants Lesnar.

Cena isn’t going to say it was fair that Brock gave Cena 3 German Suplexes in the cage, he lost and fair and square.  But tonight, he wants Seth Rollins.  It doesn’t matter if he has to face Paul Heyman, J & J Security.  He wants Rollins.

We get Seth Rollins now.

It seems Cena is running his mouth again, nobody wants to hear him speak.  No disrespect though to these 2 legends in the ring.  In their era, nobody could touch either one.  But John, his time is up, and Rollins’ time is now.

But one thing that gets Seth is Ho-Ho-Hogan is running this show, and not The Authority.

They are sitting at home, depressed that they can’t run things, and see guest hosts run this show down.  And let’s face it, Team Cena only won because of one man who turned to them, and that man is “Vigilante” Sting.

Cena is lucky that he survived that Curbstomp.  And it’s time that Hogan does the right thing and tells Cena to bring back The Authority.

Cena has heard enough, and so have I.  Cena is not bringing back The Authority.

So “Ho-Ho-Hogan” makes the match….Cena Vs Rollins…now.

Cena wins with an Attitude Adjustment on Rollins, but before that, he gives J & J Security a double AA.

Tonight, Miracle on 34th Street Fight with Ambrose Vs Wyatt, and a Piper’s Pit, with Rusev and Lana.

We come back and Kane it seems is a grinch.

Jack Swagger Vs “The new and improved” Fandango.

“The new and improved” Fandango picks up the new and improved victory, it seems, hitting his patented top rope leg drop.

Tonight, Intercontinental Title match with Dolph Ziggler Vs Luke Harper.

Tom Phillips is with Ziggler.

His ladder match with Luke was one of the most physical and mental matches of his match and shows Luke will do whatever it takes to win.  It’s just too bad that he will lose to Ziggler.  Dolph is a 4-time IC Champion, and he will do what he does best, and that is to steal the show.

It’s R-Truth Vs Adam Rose.

Truth wins with a quick roll up.

The bunny, still wearing a neckbrace checks on Adam, and Adam turns on the bunny….YET AGAIN!!

So logic tells us that this Friday, we will see the bunny back with Adam.

The Big Show Vs Reigns is up now.

The crowd chants boring, and Daniel Bryan, but all Reigns did was show his complete dominance, winning in a countout by hitting a Superman punch, throwing Big Show over the announce table to win the match.

Tonight, Ambrose Vs Wyatt in a Miracle on 34th Street Fight match.

Ambrose is with Renee Young.  Dean has been a good boy all year, because all he wanted for Christmas was Bray Wyatt.  And he got them, so Bray is in line for a beating of his life.

Natalya Vs Brie Bella is now.

Natalya wins with a rollup, making a statement that she wants the Divas Title again.

Tonight, IC Title match with Dolph Ziggler Vs Luke Harper.

Also tonight, Piper’s Pit with special guests being Rusev and Lana.

The Ascension are on their way to WWE.

Gold and Stardust are in the ring, now.  Posing as grinches.

They are facing Los Matadores, showing us they still work for WWE.

I guess this was a 2-on-3 match, because El Torito pinned Goldust with a Moonsault.

Luke Harper tells us people like to give, but Luke likes to take.  And tonight, he will hurt Ziggler, and take the Intercontinental Title.

Ziggler Vs Harper, for the IC Title is up now.

Ziggler wins a great match with a Zig Zag, retaining his IC Title.

Ziggler gets interviewed by Lawler, and he wins for these people every single night.  It’s been a rough road for him, but he found a way.

Cole and JBL are putting over that 2015 could be the year for Ziggler when he becomes WWE Champion.  I hope so.

Piper’s Pit, with Rusev is next.

We are in Minneapolis, the site for Raw Christmas.  This Friday night on Smackdown, Hulk Hogan returns to run the show.

“Rowdy” Roddy Piper is here for Piper’s Pit.

Piper loves to be here, and he tells us his two guests asked to be here, because they have a special Christmas message for all Americans.

Lana and Rusev come to the ring.

Lana interrupts Piper and tells us Christmas in America is a joke.  We pretend to be good people with our fake smiles.  The thing that we believe in an old man to give presents to all of the children.

Piper tells her this is America, land of the free and we can believe in anything we want to.

Last Tuesday night on Smackdown, Rusev attacked Ryback, before his match with Seth Rollins.

Rusev asks if we believe Rusev can crush our Ryback?  Do you believe now that Rusev crush Piper?

Piper tells him there is no reason for them to be Communist scrooges.  Piper has a gift for the two people, and he has a big bow.

Ryback shows up in a big bow.

The fight is on.

Just when Ryback is about to hit a Meat Hook on Rusev, he escapes from the ring.

Feed Me More!!

Earlier tonight, Cena received a gift from Ho-Ho-Hogan to face Seth Rollins, and Cena wins.

Tonight, Ambrose Vs Wyatt in a Miracle on 34th Street Fight.

Our next minute and half match is set as a Diva Santa’s Helper 6-Diva tag match with Alicia Fox, Emma, and Naomi Vs Cameron, Summer Rae, and Paige.

Alicia, Emma, and Naomi win when Alicia pins Cameron.  Girl, bye.

Miracle on 34th Street Fight is still to come.

Next week, The Ascension will make their debut.

Our next match is The Miz Vs Jey Uso.

Mizdow is still entertaining.  The Miz wins with a rollup and pulling of the tights.

A sneak peek of tonight’s Monday Night War, immediately after Raw, on WWE Network.

Edge and Christian will host the final Raw of 2014.

Scott Schwartz of “A Christmas Story” is here.

Bray Wyatt comes out, set for his match against Dean Ambrose. He tells us we live in an imaginary world, where we believe in Santa Claus. Wyatt lives in the real world, and he has taken Ambrose there before. Tonight, he does it again and soon enough, Dean will follow the buzzards.

Miracle on 34th Street Fight is set now for Ambrose Vs Wyatt.

Wyatt wins the fun match with some help from a kendo stick and Sister Abigail. Wyatt tries to attack Ambrose after the match, but Dean answers back and puts Wyatt through a table, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

If you missed the show, you didn’t miss anything newsworthy, but this was a fun show to see. They didn’t go all out with the Ho-Ho-Hogan, so it was good. Looking forward to seeing E & C next week.

I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas, and have a joyous holiday.

WWE Tribute To The Troops 12/17/14

Tonight, we honor the men and women who fight for us.  We are greeted by a video from various celebrities, and regular people, talking about how the men and women are our heroes.

We are in Fort Benton, Georgia.  Michael Cole and JBL welcome us to the show, without “King”, who as Michael said is on a holiday vacation.

Hulk Hogan begins the show.

Hogan talks about an honor being in front of these men and women, and he thanks them for serving out country, but The Miz and Mizdow show up.

The Miz said on behalf of the men and women here, and on behalf he was in “The Marine 3:  Homefront”, he said you’re welcome.  These men and women came to see The Miz, and of course, Mizdow is here mimicking The Miz.

Enter John Cena.

Cena talks about it should be an honor for Miz being in the same ring as Hulk Hogan.  Cena bringing up it is an honor to perform in front of these men and women.  Miz corrects him, and says it is an honor for Hogan to share the ring with The Miz.

Cena calls Miz a nobody, and Miz reminds him that he beat him at Wrestlemania 27, and John has always been jealous of Miz, because of that feat, and he is better looking than Cena.

So the two start to trade blows, but Cena gets the upper hand, and throws Miz out of the ring.  Mizdow sees this, he knows his fate, and wants to fight a stunt double Cena, so he throws himself out of the ring.

Now comes Seth Rollins, J & J Security, The Big Show, Luke Harper, and Kane.  They surround the ring, and fight off Cena and Hogan but here come Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback to help Cena and Hogan.  They all clear the ring.

When we come back, we see we will have an 8-man tag match with Team Cena (Cena, Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan) Vs Team Rollins (Rollins, Kane, Big Show, and Harper).

But first, The Uso’s Vs Gold and Stardust.

The Uso’s win with a Top Rope splash.  A fun match with all four men.

We hear from the host of The Today Show, sharing his thoughts, and thanking us.

Divas battle royal is next.

Tom Browkow speaks, puts himself over and talks about his book he is writing about, and thanking the troops.

Divas battle royal is now.

Naomi wins the match, last eliminating Natalya.

People of The Voice are sharing their thoughts, thanking the troops.  And Blake Shelton introduces us to Florida Georgia Line, who sings “Anything Goes”.

We now see a music video showing the WWE superstars visiting the troops, and families of the military.  A fun video that showcases the impact the superstars leave on the families, and troops of the armed forces.

Sgt. Slaughter tells us the Bootcamp Match is next.

We hear from Katheryn Heigel, she thanks the troops too.

Sgt. Slaughter introduces us to Wyatt Vs Ambrose.

Ambrose wins with some assistance from Sarge, using his patented boot, and Ambrose hits a Top Rope elbow for the pin.

Earlier tonight, we see Team Cena Vs Team Rollins being set up.

8-Man tag match later tonight, Cena, Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan Vs Rollins, Big Show, Luke Harper, and Kane.

Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx shows their love for the troops.

Oh lord, the Kardashians have to talk.

Rusev and Lana are in the ring.

Lana tells us it is an honor for the American troops to be in the presence of pure domination, and be near the greatest United States Champion, Rusev.

Rusev has beat every single American hero, and has dominated every single one.

Lana calls us pathetic, and tells us to shaddup!!

The super-athlete stands before us and we jeer, and we boo.  Does that mean our stupidity.  Stand up, and pay respect to our future leader, Vladimir Putin.

Daniel Bryan shows up, and tells us that this is the land of the free, and if they don’t like this, they can go back to Russia.

Lana calls Daniel a little troll, and Rusev doesn’t worry about Rusev.

Daniel laughs about that, saying your challenging Daniel?  We are all proud Americans and they can come over the wall.

Soldiers jump over the barricade, and stand at the ring.

Proud Americans come over the sky…

They land through parachute and come at ringside.

Daniel Bryan said if you want to fight, they can fight now.

But Rusev backs up, and leaves.

The Today Show and Larry The Cableguy all share their warm thoughts to the troops.

Florida Georgia Line are performing “Cruise”.

Team Cena Vs Team Rollins is next.

Team Cena Vs Team Rollins is now.

Cena gave Big Show an Attitude Adjustment, and slammed him on Harper, pinning Luke for the win.

Hulk Hogan comes out to celebrate with Team Cena waving old glory around the ring.

Erick Rowan in the same ring with Hogan, that has to be a moment for him.

Michael Cole closes the show thanking the troops, and the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Thank you to men and women fighting for us, for our safeties, for our freedom, and please let them come home, safe and sound.  12th annual Tribute to the Troops has become a holiday tradition.

Please share your thoughts here.

WWE Super Smackdown Live 12/16/14….Smackdown’s 800th Episode

It’s amazing Smackdown has a theme song to kick the show off, and Raw does not.  I don’t like that about Raw, but whatever.  We are live, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Tom Phillips, Michael Cole, and JBL welcome us to the show.

The “new and improved” Fandango is in the ring, and he will face Roman Reigns.

I don’t like Fandango’s chances here.

Fandango did get some offense, but yeah…Superman punch, and a spear.  Reigns is back, folks.

Tonight, Ryback will go one on one against Seth Rollins, but up next, Dean Ambrose.

Starting on Thursday, January 15th, Smackdown will move to Thursday.

Tomorrow night, Tribute to the Troops.  Sunday night, premiere of “Jingle All The Way 2″.

Video footage of TLC match between Ambrose and Wyatt this last Sunday.

“The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose is here.

Bray Wyatt said there was a special place in hell for the two of them, and that was at TLC.  Dean loved every second of it, because it feels good to just let the rage go.  But whether it was rage or karma, Dean lost.

But for the first time, he saw Bray was afraid, because he finally faced someone who didn’t care about what happens to him.  And he is feeling good to continue, so tomorrow night in a Bootcamp match, this fight continues.

Bray shows up on the screen.

He doesn’t understand the only reason Dean is still breathing, is because he enjoys inflicting pain just a little more than Ambrose.  Bray is a slave in his calling.  He can’t stop until he sees all of the cities crumble.  His hatred for Dean fuels Bray, HE IS THE BATTLEFIELD!!  And in the end, it will all burn down.

Next, 6-man tag of The Uso’s and Erick Rowan Vs The Miz, Mizdow, and Luke Harper.

Tomorrow night, at 8:00 WWE Tribute to the Troops.  Florida Georgia Line will be there too.

Rowan and The Uso’s win when Rowan hits a Top Rope elbow, pinning The Miz.  Miz was upset Mizdow kept mimicking Harper, which was hilarious.

Tonight, Ryback Vs Seth Rollins, and next we will see what happened at Raw, with Brock Lesnar and Chris Jericho.

Backstage, Naomi is getting ready for her Divas Title match against Nikki Bella.  Jimmy Uso apologized for acting up earlier tonight.  Miz got the best of him, and he doesn’t trust him.  Naomi tells him she is focused on beating Nikki tonight, and she needs to do it alone.  Jimmy tells her he will be backstage, pulling for her.

Raw Rebound with Brock Lesnar taking out Chris Jericho.

Ryback Vs Seth Rollins is up now.

Wake up, it’s feeding time….but Rusev lays out Ryback before the match could start.  Rusev crush!!

Now Seth wants to know what is going on here.  Without The Authority, this place is a madhouse.  And after everything Rollins has been through the last two days, can you believe this?

At TLC, Rollins was robbed of his biggest victory, thanks to Roman Reigns.  And last night, after dealing with Cena and Chris Jericho, he defeated Cena by himself inside a steel cage.  He is here tonight on Smackdown, with bruised ribs, ready to compete, but now this?  Wait a second, this works out in Rollins’ favor.  After all, after the last two nights, who deserves a night off more than Rollins?  Joey, get the limo out.

I’m here to show the world….

“The Showoff” Dolph Ziggler intervenes.  Ziggler knows that Rollins loves to orchestrate plans, after last night and tonight just now with “The Big Guy” Ryback.  But The Authority are out of power because of two men.  Sting, and Ziggy himself.

After all, Ziggler pinned Rollins, so he certainly deserves a match.  So how about “The Architect” goes one on one against Ziggler.

Rollins wants to know what Ziggler has done to warrant the match.

Ziggler suggests Rollins is afraid of Ziggler.  He understands that.

Rollins will grant Ziggler that match, because after all, it’s just Ziggler.  he will grant two gifts.  One to Ziggler to accept his challenge.  The second gift will be to himself fo giving Ziggler a curbstomp.

Ziggler will get his gear on, and steal the show, because that is what’s best for business.

Ziggler Vs Rollins tonight.

But next, Divas Title match with Naomi Vs Nikki Bella.

Soon, The Ascension will rise.

Naomi Vs Nikki Bella is set now.

Nikki Bella wins when The Miz came out to “cheer” for Naomi.  This brings out Jimmy Uso to take Miz out, and this distracts Naomi for a second, and Nikki pins her.

Naomi just glares at her husband, switching gears later tonight, Ziggler Vs Rollins.

Adam Rose Vs Kane is set now.  Former TNA wrestler Taelor Hendricks and current ROH wrestler Jimmy Jacobs are “Rosebuds” it seems.

Match is over faster than I can say Pete Rose is the bunny.  Kane hits a Chokeslam, after Adam was celebrating over a hip toss with an Alex Wright style dance.  “Das Wunderkind” style, baby.

The bunny was wearing a neckbrace, after last night’s incident and hits another Tombstone on Bunny.  One of the ears fell off, that bastard Kane killed the bunny.

Earlier tonight, Ryback was attacked by Rusev.

Ziggler Vs Rollins is next.

Next Monday night, someone will have a “Ho-Ho Hogan” Christmas.

Tomorrow night, we will have WWE Tribute to the Troops.  Always fun to see that.  Dean Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt in a Bootcamp Match.

Oh boy, Gold and Stardust hates the holidays.

Renee Young is with Seth Rollins.

Can he elaborate why Seth orchestrated the attacks on Jericho and Cena.

Seth makes sure that John Cena alone can bring back The Authority.  And until he does that, he needs to make sure to cause chaos for Cena, and even affect his WWE World Title match.  And if that means teaming up with Heyman and Lesnar, then so be it.  As for Jericho?  Chris waltzed in and thought he was in charge?  The Authority are in charge, and until they come back, Rollins will make life miserable for everyone.  And it starts with Ziggler.

Ziggler Vs Rollins, our main event is up now.

Ziggler picks up the win with a Zig Zag.  J & J Security did everything they could to help Seth, but the ref Mike Chiotta finally saw them, and threw them out of ringside, then Ziggler hit a quick Zig Zag for the win.

Ziggler celebrates on the top of the ramp to end the show.

Tomorrow night, WWE Week continues with Tribute to the Troops.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a fun show tonight, maybe it was due to the live portion, but it felt like a big show.  The one thing I cringe about though is it seems like The Authority are eventually coming back, but the question is how?  After Royal Rumble?  So we will see more cringe-worthy moments as “Ho-Ho Hogan”?

Oh boy.

But tonight, a solid main event, and I liked the first half hour, everything else just felt sort of there.

What were your thoughts on the show?  I will talk to you for tomorrow night’s Tribute to the Troops.

One more thing, please follow me on Twitter @KevinGillman, I tweet about wrestling from time to time, so if you want to drop a line, drop me a line.

WWE Monday Night Raw 12/15/14….Raw Is Jericho!!

We are live in Detroit, Michigan, kicking off WWE Week, with the special guest host coming to the ring….Chris Jericho.

The Slammy Award winning Chris Jericho, who wasn’t there last week to collect his award, Fandango showed up, and took it.

Welcome to Raw is Jericho!!  He can’t think of a better place to be than in Detroit Rock City.  Tonight, Y2J is the special guest General Manager.  Tonight, he will make this show about us, for every Jerichoholic, live here, and watching TV.

And the fans voted for Jericho with a Slammy last week, and he wants to thank us for that.

Big Y2J chants going on.

He couldn’t be here last week, but Fandango accepted it for him.  He wasn’t going to let some dancing troll, some herdy-gerdy to accept the award for him.  So he is calling out Fandumbo, Fandingo, Fandango, he demands he comes out to hand over Jericho’s Slammy.

He calls for Fandango, and we get….

Ladies and gentlemen….his name is Paul Heyman, and truth be told, confession on the table, Heyman is a Jerichoholic.  Usually he speaks to the one with power, but tonight, the power lies in Raw is Jericho.

But truth be told, if you were to out someone in charge, wouldn’t it be the one with the biggest promo track record?  No disrespect to Jericho, but that would go to Paul Heyman.

Paul is offended that Jericho won the most “EXTREME” moment in WWE, so if someone were to win the award that says EXTREME, wouldn’t it be the grandfather of Extreme?  Wouldn’t it be the grand-poohbah of Extreme?

Jericho calls him a walrus.  And while Heyman gave him his first opportunity of the business, Heyman owes him $200 from 1995 of unpaid service.

Heyman tells him to not touch him, he is not a fighter, he is an advocate.  He is not here for the reigning, undefeated, and defending WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar.

He is here for himself, and he wants to later call out Seth Rollins.  A man who had an opportunity to be a Paul Heyman guy, a man who had the opportunity to make a career out of himself, but failed to take out John Cena last night.

And here comes Seth Rollins.

Rollins wants to know if Heyman has something to say, but Paul is not a fighter, he’s not even a Sports Entertainer, he is going to take a step back.

Rollins tells Heyman he saw the entire match, he saw Cena being put through a table, he saw an official raise his hand. And once again, he had that victory taken away. In fact, just like at Survivor Series, he had the match won for his team, but there was one man who stopped that, and that man is the “Vigilante” Sting.

He had John Cena beat, in fact Cena can’t beat him by himself, he needed Roman Reigns. Seth calls Cena a coward, and requests for a rematch, but not tonight.

Rollins went through hell in the match last night, he wants to be ready for his rematch with Cena.

And of course, “Superman” comes out.

He tells Rollins to shut his mouth, he needs to let the grown ups talk. Don;t even speak until you get a set of testicles. Rollins put up a good fight, but the truth is he lost, regardless. A real man takes his loss, brushes himself off and is ready for another fight. Even if that fight is with a beast.

Cena says to Heyman that he will be ready to fight at Royal Rumble, and he is ready for a fight now. One thing Rollins did say was right they need a rematch, but Cena needs help. He can’t make matches, but we need someone with power to make the matches.

Hey wait a second, welcome back Chris Jericho. Chris accepts the match, and he issues more help, how about if the fans want it, we put them inside a steel cage.

Rollins Vs Cena, inside a steel cage tonight.

Seth calls Jericho the worst General Manager of all-time. He knows that Jericho is jealous of Rollins. Jericho can’t beat anyone, he can’t beat the popcorn seller, he can’t beat the usher, he can’t beat Paul Heyman.

Jericho admits the popcorn guy is a ninja, but he does think he can beat Paul Heyman.

Rollins tells Jericho Heyman isn’t even a fighter, he’s an advocate.

Jericho is in charge here tonight, so we will see John Cena Vs Seth Rollins, inside a steel cage, and we will also see Y2J Vs Paul Heyman, with the fans voting the stipulations to the match, with the fans voting on the WWE App. Heyman won’t ever…..EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVVVVAR be the same aga-aain!!

WWE week is here.

Heyman Vs Y2J will either be A. Extreme Rules Match, B. No Holds Barred, or C. A streetfight.

Tag Team action is up now, Erick Rowan and Dolph Ziggler Vs Luke Harper and The Big Show.

Big Show and Harper win when Show knocks out Rowan, and he walks away.

Chris Jericho will have a Highlight Reel with his guest being Rusev.

Fandango is in the back with Rosa Mendes, and he runs into Jericho. All Chris has to do if he wants his Slammy is take it, but Chris tells him he will beat Heyman, then come back and take his damn Slammy, junior.

Footage from last night’s TLC, with Ambrose Vs Wyatt.

Tomorrow night, on Live Super Smackdown, we will see Ambrose and Wyatt in the same roof.

The New Day is with Renee Young. Tonight, they have a rematch against Gold and Stardust.

Xavier said there is no negativy. Soon, they will feel the power of The New Day.

The Bellas Vs Natalya and Alicia Fox is up now.

Nattie and Alicia win with Natalya hitting a Sharpshooter for the win. Tyson was hitting on Nikki, it seems.

Later tonight, Jericho Vs Heyman, but next….Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel.

Tomorrow night, Roman Reigns returns to action on Super Smackdown Live.

Time for the Highlight Reel.

The last time on The Highlight Reel, he predicted The Authority would lose, and they did. And he predicts one of his 2 guests will wear a tight suit, wearing either red, white, or blue, and hopefully it’s not Rusev.

Rusev and Lana, and Jericho was right again.

Lana wants to remind us last night at TLC PPV, Rusev reminded undefeated when he defeated that “stupid American” again.

Jericho asks why Lana is so angry all the time? Is it the tight bun she wears?

Shuddap!!

And why is Rusev so angry? Maybe he needs to relieve that stress, and show Lana that spudnic.

Shuddap!!

There is something going on here. Maybe Rusev has a thing for Lana? It’s the US Champ, and the Communist Tramp….

Shuddap!!

Rusev tells Chris he talks too much, maybe he crushes him now.

Everytime Jericho opens his mouth on Raw, someone wants to fight him. And the same can be said for Rusev. He knows someone wants to beat him now.

Feed me more!!

Ryback goes face to face with Rusev, and the United States Champion slowly walks away.

We can vote for what stipulation Jericho Vs Paul Heyman will have, either A. Extreme Rules Match, B. No Holds Barred Match, or C. Streetfight.

Last night, video of John Cena Vs Seth Rollins, with Roman Reigns returning.

Tonight, Rollins Vs Cena.

The Ascension will rise in WWE, they are coming.

The New Day Vs Gold and Stardust is up now.

The New Day win with a Midnight Hour. Xavier and Big E. pick up the win, crowd wasn’t feeling this match, but they worked hard.

Jericho Vs Heyman, tonight.

Renee Young is with The Miz and Mizdow. Tonight, The Miz faces Jimmy Uso. Miz talks about Jimmy being a former Tag Team Champion. But now, he is a jealous husband, and Miz will capitalize on this.

I honestly thought Jey was Naomi’s husband, since his real name is Jon, and not Jimmy. But oh well.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the planet, Adam Rose wants to throw his Rosebuds an after-party after his match tonight, but his opponent? Kane.

Kane makes it clear he doesn’t like him, or his friends.

Rose Vs Kane, next.

The bunny tried to help, but is met with a double Chokeslam, with Kane winning. Then Kane gave the bunny a Tombstone Piledriver, bunny is done.

Earlier tonight, Jericho issued a challenge with Heyman.

Heyman Vs Jericho is next.

Tomorrow night on The Main Event, we will see Kane Vs Erick Rowan.

Jericho Vs Heyman will be….

Heyman comes out with a mic. He has nothing planned for this, because he doesn’t find anything entertaining in this. Heyman gave Jericho a break, he doesn’t understand how he can fight him for $200 from 20 years ago. It’s the principle in this, so how about he just give him the money?

Heyman tries to write a check, but Chris doesn’t want it. He needs to go with the results, and we have a….

Streetfight.

Okay, Heyman will go through with this, but he doesn’t understand why Chris feels the need to go one on one with….

BROCK LESNAR!!

Here comes the pain.

Jericho tries, but Brock gives him a F-5, and leaves.

The match ends in a no contest, I guess.

At Royal Rumble, it will be Cena Vs Lesnar, one final time.

And just moments ago, we see Lesnar hit a F-5 on Jericho.

Now for the “new and improved” Fandango.

Fandango still has Jericho’s Slammy, and he shows us that very thing too.

Raw is Jericho is now Raw was Jericho.

Roman Reigns has something to say.

He decks Fandango, and ruins his moment.

Roman gets a nice pop, and before Roman can say anything, Big Show has something to say.

If Show comes down to this ring, he will hit him in the mouth.

Show tells him he will have to try it.

And Roman hits a Superman punch.

Show takes the stairs down, and walks away.

Tonight, steel cage match with Cena Vs Rollins.

Tonight, after WWE Raw, we see The Sting and The Undertaker on Monday Night War.

Moments ago, we see Roman Reigns show us whose yard this is.

The Miz Vs Jimmy Uso is up now.

Jimmy wins when Mizdow came into the ring, to distract it seems, and Jimmy hit the splash.

Now Mizdow is doing what any stunt double is, and that is laying in pain.

Tonight, steel cage match with Cena Vs Rollins.

Wednesday night is WWE Tribute to the Troops, at 8:00.

Backstage, Miz is telling Naomi he is man of his word, and is a champion. So tomorrow night, he will put her on Miz TV, so she can lay out her platform and vie for the Divas Championship. Miz doesn’t think her husband will have any issue with it. Then again, maybe she shouldn’t tell him?

Bray Wyatt and Dean Ambrose will be in the same roof, tomorrow night on Super Smackdown Live.

Renee is with Seth Rollins.

Seth is not crazy about being in this match, 24 hours after one of his most grueling matches. Nobody is safe, not even Chris Jericho.

This place is missing something. We need the guidance and leadership of The Authority. Most people would be in a hospital bed, but Seth is going out there, ready to give and teach John Cena a lesson he will never forget.

The steel cage is coming down, our main event is next.

Oh lord, Ho-Ho Hogan will be special guest host of Raw next week.

Rollins Vs Cena, inside a steel cage is now.

Brock Lesnar comes out, and gives Cena 3 German Suplexes in the cage, followed by a F-5.

Rollins sold his soul to the devil, because Rollins now is shaking hands with Heyman, nails a Curbstomp on Cena for good measure, and exits the cage, winning the match.

The show ends with Rollins celebrating his win, and a battered Cena laid out.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A solid show here, I have to think Cena beats Lesnar at Rumble, and I hope Rollins cashes in the briefcase, because he is involved in this and you have to think this will end that way, right?

And does this mean Rollins is a Heyman Guy, or did he just make a random deal with Paul, so Brock can beat up Cena?

WWE Week is off and roaring, and next week I cringe at Hogan playing Santa. After all, anyone else remember “Santa with Muscles”?

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

WWE TLC & Stairs 12/14/14

We are live in Cleveland, Ohio.  Renee Young, Booker T, Alex Riley, and Paul Heyman welcome us to the show.  Tonight, we get a Tables Match, with John Cena Vs Seth Rollins.

Paul Heyman questions the condition of both men, should they win.  If Cena loses, who faces his client, Brock Lesnar, and what condition would “Mr. Money in the Bank” Seth Rollins be in, should he try to cash in the title.  And, what shape would Cena be in, should he win, when he goes after Lesnar’s title?

Our Kick-off match tonight is The New Day Vs Gold and Stardust.

Tom Phillips joins us in the Social Media lounge, telling us Dolph Ziggler will be live tweeting later tonight, and we can ask him questions using the #AskZiggler hashtag.

We now see a preview of tonight’s TLC match with Dean Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt.

We are backstage, with Miz and Mizdow trying to tell Naomi he has given her a chance at a deal for a top producer.  Naomi doesn’t trust him.  The window ends tonight.  But he also makes this clear, when he is champion, he is in a good mood.  When he is in a good mood, good things can happen.  So when he wins tonight, she wins tonight because all doors are open for her.

Tag Team Title is on the line.  The Miz and Mizdow Vs The Uso Brothers.

We also have a stairs match with The Big Show Vs Erick Rowan, the combined weight of the stairs involved is 2,200 pounds.

Tonight, Cleveland’s own Dolph Ziggler will go for the IC Title in a ladder match, and Ziggler is doing a Q & A now.

Ziggler is ready to climb that ladder, and become new IC Champion, again.

JBL, Michael Cole, and Jerry “The King” Lawler are ready for the match.  The New Day Vs Gold and Stardust, here we go.

The New Day pick up the win, with Kofi and Big E hitting a Midnight Hour, pinning Stardust.

Tonight, AJ Lee Vs Nikki Bella for the Divas Title.

Booker said this is his Shucky Ducky Quack Quack moment of the night.

Also tonight, a chairs match with Ryback facing Kane.

When we come back from the show, we find out Ziggler Vs Harper for the IC Title in a ladder match.

Rollins Vs Cena video is showing.

Renee Young tells Heyman that in 6 weeks, Brock Lesnar will put his WWE World Title on the line.  So if Cena loses, who will be the Number One Contender?

Heyman is concerned for Rollins’ health, because he sees Seth as a future of WWE.  Either John Cena or Seth Rollins comes out tonight, looking ahead at Brock Lesnar and what condition will they be in?

We will find out in 3 minutes.  TLC is among us.

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

IC Title match kicks the show off, Ziggler Vs Harper is now.

Dolph Ziggler is now a 4-time Intercontinental Champion.  A fantastic match here to kick the show off.  Cleveland’s own makes the people proud.

The announcers are making this feel special for Ziggler and that he turned the corner in his career.  Let’s hope so, because Ziggler has everything to be a big star.

WWE Tribute to the Troops, with Florida Georgia Line is this Wednesday, at 8:00.

Tag Team Title match is set now.  The Uso’s Vs The Miz and Mizdow.

Miz and Mizdow are DQ’d when Miz nails one of the Uso’s with a Slammy, retaining their titles.

Mizdow again was the highlight, mimicking Miz every time he was selling.  The crowd loves Mizdow, and hates Miz.

Byron Saxson is with Seth Rollins.

If Seth wins, Cena is no longer the Number One Contender to the WWE World Title.

If?  It’s when he wins, and Seth is going to dedicate this win to two people who should be here running this company.  HHH and Stephanie McMahon, and why didn’t they win?  It wasn’t Cena, it was the vigilante, Sting.  And the best part?  Seth doesn’t even have to pin Cena, he just has to put Cena through a table.

He has two things to bring up, that paradox that he described to Cena, that is real and it starts.  And that second thing is through the hard work Cena went through to get here will be gone.  He won’t stop until Cena does the right thing, and reinstate The Authority.

Our first stairs match is up now.  The Big Show Vs Erick Rowan.

Big Show wins knocking out Rowan through a steel step.

Total Divas return on January 4th.

Cena Vs Rollins in a Tables match is next.

Paul Heyman shows up to scout the match, for his client Brock Lesnar.

We had a ref bump, Rollins goes through a table, but J & J Security stops that.  Then all 3 men put Cena through a table, and then we get both men go through a table.  So the ref does the best thing he can, restart the match.

Enter Big Show, trying to put a stop to Cena.  He punches him a few times, and here comes Roman Reigns.

Superman Punch, spear through a table.  Now Reigns gives Rollins a Superman Punch, Cena hits an AA through a table, and wins the match.

Cena makes it clear to Heyman, he is ready for Lesnar.

Earlier tonight, in the TLC Kick-Off, The New Day defeated Gold and Stardust.

The TLC panel is here.

Byron is backstage with the Bellas.  Nikki is finally to put to rest with AJ Lee.  Brie says they may have had their issues, but blood is thicker than water.  And nothing, including a nobody like AJ Lee will come between her sister.

AJ Lee Vs Nikki Bella for the Divas Title is now.

Nikki Bella retains her title when she sprayed something in AJ’s eyes, and hit the Rack Attack, pinning her.  Before this, Brie tried to help her sister, but was ejected from ringside by the ref.

Tom Phillips is with Roman Reigns.

He told the whole world he would be back in a month at Survivor Series.  But he is here to make an impact, spearing Big Show.  Knocking out Seth Rollins.  He is here to officially enter The Royal Rumble.  If we think what he did last year was impactful, wait until we see what he does this year.

Believe that.

Chairs match is up now.  Kane Vs Ryback.

Ryback wins the match with Shellshock, and the Cleveland crowd can’t be any more happier.

Moving on….

It’s WWE Week on USA Network, with Raw on Monday night, a live Smackdown on Tuesday, and WWE Tribute to the Troops on Wednesday.

Rusev….crush.  Rusev Vs Swagger for the United States Title is up now.

“The Ravishing Russian” Lana is with Rusev.

Lana tries to speak, but Swagger comes out.  They must be short on time here.

Swagger tries, but passes out with an Accolade here.

Rusev is still your United States Champion.

WWE just showed us a video of Cena Vs Lesnar is their final battle.  It doesn’t look good for Lesnar then.

Our main event, Bray Wyatt Vs Dean Ambrose in a TLC match is now.

I liked the creative ending here.  Bray Wyatt wins when an exploded TV monitor blasted into Ambrose’s eyes, and blinds him a bit.  Bray was able to capitalize and hits Sister Abigail.

We had a little of everything, flying through ladders, busted up tables, blasted chairs, and a TV monitor.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The Road to Royal Rumble has begun. TLC featured 3 good matches, with Ziggler Vs Harper, Cena Vs Rollins, and Ambrose Vs Wyatt.

And if Bray is indeed set to face The Undertaker, which is rumored at Wrestlemania 31, they did the right thing.

We also had Roman Reigns make his return, and he’s more than likely the Royal Rumble favorite, although will he face Lesnar? I can truly see Brock Bs Reigns, but they could always give us something else. The quest begins tomorrow night.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 12/8/15…The Slammy Awards

Tonight, 6 days away from TLC, we will see John Cena face The Big Show, after Show’s turn against Team Cena at Survivor Series.

Michael Cole and JBL welcome us to the show, and we also will have The Slammy Awards.

Raw is now.

Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show, and he brings out tonight’s host, Seth Green.

Seth is a true wrestling fan, so he is a good choice to host The Slammys.

The Miz and Mizdow come out to interrupt Seth telling us the only way to vote is use the WWE App.

Miz brings up Seth hasn’t used him for any Hollywood projects, and he is such an A-lister.

Seth brings up the only A-Lister here is Mizdow.

The Miz presents the first award for tonight.  The This is Awesome moment of the year.

Nominees:

A.  The Yes Movement

B.  Stephanie McMahon being arrested, with Brie Bella pressing charges.

C.  Sting costing The Authority the match at Survivor Series.

D.  Hulk Hogan, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, and The Rock all in the ring at the same time at Wrestlemania 30.

We will find out the results after this match….

Dolph Ziggler Vs Seth Rollins.

Rollins wins with a Curbstomp, after the J & J Security distract Ziggler.

Seth Green comes out to hand out the award.

Winner:  Sting debuting in WWE

And of course, Sting is not there to accept the award (Is this going to be a trend here?).  Seth Rollins comes out, and asks what is so great about Sting?  He costs him the chance to win his biggest match of his career, so on behalf of Sting, Rollins will take the award.

The New Day are out next.

There were other winners announced on the pre show, that is featured on WWE.com.

Stardust Vs Kofi is up now

Kofi wins with a flying cross body.

At TLC, we will see The New Day Vs Gold and Stardust.

The Ultimate Warrior

No speech, we immediately go backstage.  Seth Rollins is celebrating his victory with his goons, when Paul Heyman shows up.

Heyman is here to represent his client, Brock Lesnar.  Heyman tells Seth that if he gets passed Cena this Sunday night….

If?  It’s when he gets passed Cena, and he will go right after the WWE World Title, but he will do it when Brock least expects it.

Heyman tells Rollins Brock remembers when he curbstomped him, but this isn’t about the reigning, and defending WWE World Champion, this is about Rollins making sure John Cena is the past, this Sunday.

We get a treat, and see the NXT Divas Champion, Charlotte.

Her WWE debut against Natalya, is next.

This is all to promote NXT:  Revolution, this Thursday night on WWE Network.  Charlotte will defend her Divas Title against Sasha Banks.  We will also see Sami Zayn go one on one against Adrian Neville, for the World Title.

Natalya wins in surprising fashion, with a rollup to counter the Figure Four.

I have no clue why we must see the Divas Champion lose, here when she is promoting the upcoming NXT show.

Santino Marella is here to announce the nominees for the OMG Shocking Moment of the Year.

OMG Shocking Moment of the Year nominees:

A.  Seth Rollins turning on The Shield.

B.  Nikki Bella turning on Brie.

C.  Bray Wyatt sings with the C-Nation.

D.  The Streak is conquered.

Tonight, John Cena Vs The big Show, but first…

Winner:

The Streak is Conquered.

Paul Heyman accepts the award for Brock.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman.  And he is the one behind the one, at 21-1.  He earned that distinction when The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania streak was conquered by his client, Brock Lesnar.

Bray Wyatt shows up.

Bray will never forget the first time he saw her.  She was sitting in this rocking chair near the apple tree.  That was her chair.

We see that rocking chair torn up last week, by Dean Ambrose.

Dean Ambrose took something away from him, something that will never be replaced.  So he thought he should take something from him.

We see from last Smackdown, when Wyatt rammed a chair into Ambrose’s throat.

Bray issues a warning to Ambrose, if he gets close to him, he will burn him.  And when he climbs up the ladder this Sunday, he will stand over Dean’s body.

Tables, ladder, and chairs….Oh my.

We hear sirens, and an ambulance.  I am guessing it’s Ambrose ready to get him some.

And he is.

And he has some “toys” with him….namely tables, ladders, and chairs.

Ambrose carries them to the ring, throwing a chair right at Wyatt.  Bray tries to leave, and Dean tells him to take a good look at the ambulance, because that is the only way Wyatt leaves this Sunday.  He will become a monster and will eat him alive.

Seth Green joins us.

The person to present the Diva of the year is Jerry “The King” Lawler.

WWE Diva of the year nominees:

A.  Brie Bella

B.  Paige

C.  AJ Lee

D.  Nikki Bella

WWE Divas winner:

AJ Lee

We get CM Punk chants.

AJ has redefined the term diva over the years.  You can be a nerd, a tomboy, and still be a diva.  She hopes Baylee, Paige, Sasha.  But she is still the queen, and will get her Divas Title.

Renee Young is with John Cena.  John reminds us Vince issuing a challenge to the WWE wrestlers to step up, and he knows Seth Rollins is listening.  He will step up this Sunday.  But he knows he can’t pin him.  Rollins isn’t man enough to make Cena tap.  So it’s time for Cena to step up.  If John goes through a table, his shot at the WWE Championship is done.  So tonight, he will put a 500 pound man through his shoulders, and slam him down.  Because his time is not done.

Erick Rowan is in the ring, next.

It’s Rowan Vs Luke Harper, now.

Harper is DQ’d using a ladder, so Rowan gets some revenge, by using the steel stairs.

Those two are getting acquainted with their weapons of choice, for this Sunday.

Naomi is backstage, with The Uso’s celebrating their Slammy Awards.

Naomi heard from The Miz’s agent.

She is going to Hollywood, so is Jey.

The presenter for the LOL Moment of the Year….Adam Rose.

The LOL Moment of the Year Nominees Are:

A.  Mr. T loves his Momma.

B.  Wee-L-C Match

C;  The stunt double….Mizdow.

D.  Princess Pudding, Stephanie going through some pudding….ON MY BIRTHDAY!!

The LOL Moment of the Year Winner is:

Damien Mizdow

Mizdow tries to talk, but The Miz shoves him out-of-the-way to accept the award.

The crowd wants Miz-now.  The Miz wants to thank a person that doesn’t get the credit that they deserve….The moneymaker.

Rusev crush….The United States Champion is coming to the ring.

Lana asks us if we want to know what the real LOL moment of the year is?  How about our economy, or even the current President of the United States.  But our real americans are the real LOL moment.

Enter Jack Swagger.

In America, there is a saying, what comes around, goes around.  Rusev broke Zeb’s leg?  Swagger is going to break his ankle.

Swagger threw Rusev’s ankle into the barricade, and slapped The Patriot Lock on him.

We The People chants are through the arena.

Tonight, John Cena Vs The Big Show.  But next, 6-man tag match of Ryback and The Uso’s Vs Kane, The Miz, and Damien Mizdow.

The Uso’s and Ryback Vs The Miz, Kane, and Mizdow is now.

In what was an entertaining match, we saw Ryback pin The Miz with Shellshock.  We had Mizdow literally fly off the top rope, to mimic The Miz.  Seriously, Mizdow is getting over as a huge babyface, and it will happen sooner, rather than later.

Seth Green celebrates with the three men after the match.

Clips from the first ever Slammy Award show, from 1986.

Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat comes out for the next award….Match of the Year.

A.  Daniel Bryan Vs Randy Orton Vs Batista, at Wrestlemania 30.

Match of the Year winner:

Team Cena Vs Team Authority.

Dolph Ziggler comes out to accept the award, he thanks the fans for sticking behind him his entire career, and promises there is more to come.

AJ Lee Vs Summer Rae, now.

AJ makes Summer tap out to Black Widow.

This Sunday, AJ Vs Nikki for the Divas Title.

Rob Van Dam is presenting the Extreme Moment of the Year.

Rob is in a tux, I am not sure if I have ever seen that before.  There is nobody better to present this than “Mr. Monday Night” Rob Van Dam.

Extreme Moment of the Year Nominees:

A.  Brock Lesnar putting the ass beating of Cena at Summerslam.

B.  Kane destroying Daniel Bryan.

C.  Chris Jericho doing a top rope flying body press on Bray Wyatt off the top of the cage.

D.  Seth Rollins using a Curbstomp on a cinder block, destroying Dean Ambrose.

The winner will be announced, next.

Extreme Moment of the Year Winner is:

Chris Jericho, and he is not with us.

But the “new and improved” Fandango is.

He accepts Jericho’s award.  Because he is reminding us he defeated Jericho in his debut match at Wrestlemania.

Okay, moving on.

“Saint Mick” is with Noelle, the elf and they are doing a WWEShopzone.com promo.

2 weeks ago, Big Show knocks out Cena, and Renee Young is standing by with Show.

Will Show be focused tonight, with Cena even though he is facing Erick Rowan in the first-ever Steel Steps match on Sunday?

Show said Renee made a mistake by asking that question, but he will forgive her, unlike the WWE Universe for not forgiving Big Show’s mistake.  But tonight, he takes all the anger and frustration out on Cena.

Booker T is now presenting us the WWE Superstar of the Year.

Superstar of the Year Nominees are:

A.  Brock Lesnar.

B.  Dean Ambrose.

C.  Daniel Bryan.

D.  Roman Reigns.

E.  Bray Wyatt.

F.  John Cena.

G.  Seth Rollins.

Vote now on WWE App, and we will find out the winner.  Big Show Vs Cena is next.

Chris Jericho returns next week on Raw, to run the show.

Superstar of the Year winner is:

Roman Reigns.

A bit of a surprise there, and here he is.

We get a welcome back chant.

It’s not the brass ring, but it’s pretty damn good and Roman loves it.  It’s a step in the right direction, and talking about stepping up.  It doesn’t matter if it’s John Cena, HHH, The Rock, Brock Lesnar, Vince McMahon, Roman will step up and be the top star and you can believe that.

Our main event, John Cena Vs The Big Show is now.

Big Show is DQ’d when Rollins comes out with J & J Security.  But here comes Ziggler to help Cena.  Big Show knocks both Cena and Ziggler out.  Erick Rowan is taken out by Luke Harper.  Here comes Ryback, but Kane takes him out.

We have all the finishing moves, but the night ends with Cena being hit by a Curbstomp by Rollins, and is put through the announce table.

It’s Rollins’ time now.

TLC is this Sunday, live and exclusively on WWE Network.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a fun show tonight and it set up the PPV well.  It wasn’t centered around the awards, yet it also wasn’t taking itself too seriously.  I do question the choice of Charlotte losing when her job was to showcase the NXT show this Thursday.  But other than that, everything else did their jobs, and next week with Jericho back, even for a night should be fun.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 12/1/14…Cyber Raw

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend, and now the holidays are upon us.  Tonight, taking advantage of Cyber Monday, Raw is giving us a Cyber Raw, featuring the Anonymous Raw General Manager.

That will be ummm….fun.

Raw is now.

We see clips from last week, when The Authority was wheeled out, Daniel Bryan showed up, and Cena and Ziggler beat Rollins, and J & J Security.

We are live in Tulsa, Oklahoma and immedately hear the internet bell.

WWE needs the anonymous Raw GM.  Which is why they need to make the following announcements.

Cue John Cena music, and here he comes.

Cena doesn’t like the Anonymous Raw GM, and he made a joke about Brock Lesnar.

Team Cena showed up at Survivor Series.  Big Show showed his true colors, and tried to join The Authority, HHH tried to underhand ways to win, but he wasn’t successful, and the reason for that was…

Beeping noise kept ringing, and Cena went to the computer, and said he wasn’t going to let a faceless GM interrupt his big announcement.

Seth Rollins shows up.

Let’s hear it for John Cena.

Rollins tells us Cena is good at telling bad jokes.  He is also good at waving his hands, and he’s good at half of the crowd telling him how much he sucks.

Not many boos tonight.

Another thing John is good at is taking credit, for something he didn’t do.  Cena didn’t win Survivor Series.  In fact, Rollins pinned Cena.  In fact, The Authority would still be in power if it wasn’t for one man….Sting.

Cena tells us Rollins forgot that Dolph Ziggler defied all odds, and pinned 3 men, to win the match, and take The Authority out.

Seth has to ask Cena, he has to ask the universe if they honestly believe WWE is better without The Authority in control?

With The Authority out of power, we had Daniel Bryan come back, we have an Anonymous Raw GM, what is next?  JBL?  JBL is gamed, how about Batista?  Or let’s bring back Eric Bischoff with one week, regardless we will have someone different every week, and we start all over.

What is your point?

Rollins said that his point is he is better off with bringing back The Authority, so there could be control.

Do the right thing, what’s best for business.

Cena doesn’t like Rollins’ tune, he got rid of his trump card, and now is just a normal guy, like the rest of us.  So do not talk to him like that, Cena is the only one who can bring back The Authority.

So would you do it?

Cena wants him to ask nicely, and he tries to, but Rollins doesn’t get on his hands and knees for it.

The beeping sound comes on, the computer mysteriously comes back.

There will be order here, and the Anon Raw GM makes it Cena Vs Rollins at TLC, in a Tables Match.  And to prove Cena is the strongest superstar he can be, if he loses at TLC, he will lose his Number One Contender spot.

Rollins attacks Cena from behind, with Kane coming in and helping.  But here comes Ryback, and here comes Erick Rowan.  Big Show follows, and there is a fight everywhere.

Here comes Ziggler, and Luke Harper finishes things off, and fights Team Cena. We end up seeing a Triple Powerbomb, with Rollins and J & J Security send Cena through a table with a Triple Powerbomb.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw, with the doctor checking in on Cena. Somewhere, there is a CM Punk joke somewhere. What’s a good thing to take for a concussion? Z-Pack, I guess.

Tag Team Turmoil is up now, with the winner facing Miz and Mizdow at TLC.

Gold and Stardust will face The New Day first.

The New Day pin the former Tag Team Champs, with Kofi doing a high body cross, pinning Goldust.

Next up is the team of Cesaro and Tyson Kidd.

The New Day has been eliminated, when Gold and Stardust lay out Xavier and Big E, leaving Cesaro rolling up Kofi.

The Uso’s are next.

The Uso’s win with a flying splash by Jey, pinning Tyson.

Our final team coming in is Adam Rose and the bunny.

Uso splash, pinning Adam Rose, after he bumped into the bunny.

So The Uso’s get yet another tag title shot.

Naomi checks in backstage, and The Miz informs her that he wishes her luck in the tag team match later tonight with AJ Lee. The Miz also told her he watched her music video, and was impressed. He hands her a business card of a music producer he knows that might be interested.

A big limo is shown arriving, and it’s Vince McMahon himself.

Next week, it’s The Slammy Awards, with Seth Green hosting the event.

Earlier tonight, we show Erick Rowan and Big Show go face to face, and he is with Tom Phillips.

Erick is a genius, a guitar player, and a wine maker. He has so much going for him, why would he get involved with The Big Show?

Because he is a bully. Erick figured out the rubix cube, again.

The Big Show comes out, and tells us he is a bully, but he doesn’t care about us anymore, because we sold him out.

So bring out Erick Rowan, and he will show what kind of a bully he can be.

Rowan Vs Show is now.

Show is DQ’d when he nails a steel steps on Rowan’s head, and officials check on Rowan, while Big Show smirks.

Renee Young is with Vince McMahon.

Vince brings up the exclusive podcast with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin on WWE Network.

Renee asks if he would bring back The Authority. Vince reminds her only John Cena can do that, but after Raw, exclusively on WWE Network, podcast with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, and it is going to be fun.

Last Monday, AJ Lee tells off The Bellas, but tonight, who will join AJ Lee against The Bellas? Either A. Natalya, B. Naomi, or C. Alicia Fox.

Tonight, we are in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The “new” and “improved” Fandango is up now.

Fandango will face “The Real American” Jack Swagger.

Oh wait, he isn’t coming. Someone took out Zeb Colter, so there is no match.

The winner, by forfeit is Fandango.

Enter Rusev, with the lovely “Ravishing Russian” Lana.

Lana is on the mic and tells us while us Americans pride in ourselves in freedom….last week, Rusev was ordered to recite our pathetic Pledge of Allegiance. Not only did Rusev refuse bravely, but he also was punished and forced to put his US Title on the line against 19 other men, and they all failed. So when is America going to understand we are a pathetic excuse of a super power.

Rusev tells us that those that disagree will be crushed. And those that will not listen will be broken, like Zeb Colter.

Lana orders us to stand up and show respect for the Russian flag. We get the Pledge of Russia Allegiance.

Enter Jack Swagger.

They fight until officials seperate the two. But that doesn’t stop Swagger.

Lana and Rusev bail.

Tonight, AJ Lee and a mystery partner will face The Bellas. We can choose them on the WWE App.

Mizdow Vs Fernando, now.

Mizdow makes Fernando tap to the Figure Four, and Jey Uso comes over, and slaps Miz, telling him to stay away from his wife.

6-man tag match is our main event. Ziggler, Cena, and Ryback Vs Rollins, Kane, and Harper.

Tulsa, I’m here.

Bray Wyatt is next.

Last Monday, we see Bray taking out Dean Ambrose, and at TLC he will face Ambrose in a TLC Match.

Wyatt Vs R-Truth, now.

Sister Abigail, that is all she wrote.

Now out comes the chairs, ladder, and tables when we go to a break.

Bray comes back, and tells us it didn’t have to be this way Dean. They could have dominated together, but here comes Ambrose, ready for a fight.

Ambrose tells Bray that he will destroy everything to Wyatt and now goes after his sacred rocking chair.

For the first time, Wyatt is not amused.

The Bellas Vs AJ Lee and ???

Naomi.

AJ makes Nikki tap out to the Black Widow. Is she lined up for another Divas Title shot?

St. “Nick” with his elf, “Noelle” is doing some merchandise for WWEShopzone.com.

He sounds alot like Mick Foley, oh well.

6-man tag match is our main event tonight.

This Friday night on Smackdown, we will see Dean Ambrose Vs Rusev, one on one.

Earlier tonight, the Anonymous Raw GM informs it will be Cena Vs Rollins, with the Number One Contender title on the line.

Paul Heyman joins them live via satellite.

Cena talks about Lesnar being here once a year, let’s just have Christmas every day? That would be stupid, it wouldn’t be special, like Brock being at Raw.

But let’s talk about Wrestlemania being here every Monday night. It would be stupid, it would be pointless. Brock is must-see TV.

So this idea of the Number One Contender would be on the line. If Cena wins, then Cena would get a bigger beating than what he had at Summerslam, with a fresh Lesnar.

Then again, who would be the number one contender if Cena loses? A very interesting question, because would it be Seth Rollins? A guy who can’t do anything without The Authority, and by the way that apology Seth gave for the Curb Stomp is rescinded.

Would it be The Undertaker? We haven’t seen him since Wrestlemania.

How about Sting? It wouldn’t even have to be a retirement match, because if he were to step in the ring with Brock, it WOULD be a retirement match.

How about anyone in the back? Put them all in the ring, one by one and Brock would take them out, because he is must-see, and he is your reigning, and DEFENDING WWE World Champion.

Our main event…John Cena, Ryback, and Dolph Ziggler Vs Seth Rollins, Luke Harper, and Kane.

WWE Friday Night Smackdown 11/28/14…Who Is Running This Show?

After an awful Raw, will WWE improve with Smackdown?  And who is in charge?

Smackdown is now.

We see Sting’s appearance from this past Sunday at Survivor Series.

Hey, Smackdown has a theme song, Raw does not anymore.

Tom Phillips wishes us a Happy Thanksgiving weekend, and we see Miz TV kicking things off, with The Miz and Mizdow.

Miz reminds us that at Survivor Series, he became the new World Tag Team champion, and raises his Tag Title.  Mizdow raises his, and is cheered.

Miz introduces us to The Big Show.

Last Monday night, Big Show issued a challenge to anyone from the back to say anything to him to his face, and Erick Rowan answers the calls.

Miz understands what Big Show did, and said the only mistake he made was joining Team Cena.

Big Show stated that people want to judge him, Erick Rowan doesn’t understand what Big Show has gone through.

Daniel Bryan shows up.

Daniel gets a nice warm welcome from the fans.

Big Show said Monday night if someone had something to say, come out and say something.  Daniel Bryan is someone, and he has something to say.

He asks if everyone is ready for Daniel Bryan Smackdown.  He is running the show tonight, and has some great matches.

We will have The Ryback Vs Seth Rollins.

Do we want to see a championship match tonight?  Tonight, we will have an Intercontinental Title match with Luke Harper Vs Dolph Ziggler.

The Miz is not impressed.  Daniel couldn’t steal Miz’s spotlight, because Mizdow is already doing that.

Big Show does not want to hear what Daniel Bryan has to plan, this is about Big Show and not Daniel Bryan Smackdown.

But this about Big Show.  He said Monday night that if Rusev wouldn’t say the pledge of allegiance, he’d have to defend his United States Title in a battle royal.

Well, he didn’t do the pledge of allegiance, so we will have a 20-man battle royal now.

Included in this match will be The Miz, Mizdow, The Big Show, and this man….Erick Rowan.

Rusev retains the United States Title, last eliminating Swagger, although his feet did touch the floor, but the refs did not see it.  This match also featured The Miz being eliminated, and Mizdow eliminated himself.  Very funny.

The “Ravishing Russian” Lana is impressed.

Kane is still trying to sell merchandise.  Santino wants a T-shirt, but Kane is not amused.

Tom Phillips, JBL, and Michael Cole welcome us to the show.

Bray Wyatt is here.

Footage from last Monday night when Bray gets some revenge on Dean Ambrose, after Sunday night.

2 weeks from Sunday night, in Cleveland at TLC, we have a TLC match.

As Dean climbed up the ladder Sunday night, he looked like an angel descending to heaven.  And for a brief moment, Bray had a smile on his face.  But he told Dean the two of them do not belong in heaven, they belong somewhere else.  But as those chairs were crashing onto his face, the pan felt euphoric.  And for a moment, Bray thought he failed Dean, but Bray failed himself.  But understand this, Bray molds the demons, but Dean thinks he has Bray figured out, but the lord works in mysterious ways, and what is his is always his.  So tonight, they celebrate, because they are almost at the point of no return.  And TLC will change him….Tables, Ladder, and Chairs…oh my.  He is going to teach Dean a lesson, and he will finally be able to smile, because he will finally get Dean right back where he belongs, in the dirt where he belongs, with the other insects.

Follow…..

Tonight, IC Title match, Dolph Ziggler Vs Luke Harper.

The New Day is dawning, tonight.

Emma Vs Nikki Bella.

Nikki wins with the Rack Attack.

I guess Brie and Nikki are still together, even though the 30 day policy is over.

Nikki is on the mic.  It’s time everyone knows the real truth about AJ Lee.  We know her sob story, but Nikki has worked harder.  She now wants to know what a real Divas Champ is supposed to look like.  AJ will always be that little pathetic, manipulating girl from New Jersey.

AJ comes running, and Nikki ducks out.

Kane’s merchandise stand has been crashed through a table.

Feed Me More….

Ryback is in action, Vs Seth Rollins is now.

Rollins DQ’d when Kane brings a chair into the ring, but Ryback catches him in time.  The numbers game catches up, however and now Rollins hands Kane the chair, and walks off when Kane whales the chair on Ryback many times.

The New Day is next.

The New Day are set to face Slater Gator and Curtis Axel.

Power, speed, and brains were the combination here.  The New Day wins, with a combination Big Ending and flying forearm, by Xavier Woods.

Tonight, Dolph Ziggler Vs Luke Harper, for the IC Title.

Santino Marella is now pushing merchandise, on WWEshopzone.com.

Raw Rebound, featuring the end of The Authority.

This Monday, the return of Cyber Monday.

Renee Young is with Daniel Bryan.

He has had a blast running both Raw and Smackdown and he has missed this.  But before he relinquish duties, he will schedule a match for TLC.  Kane Vs Ryback, in a chairs match.

One last question, will Daniel be back soon?

Yes!!  Yes!!  Yes!!

Main event time, Ziggler Vs Harper, for the IC Title.

Before the match, Gold and Stardust had a message.  Darkness is here, cosmic key is gone.  Darkness falls on The New Day.

Ziggler Vs Harper, now.

Ziggler wins by countout here, but does not win the IC Title.  Harper lays out Ziggler after the match, and this makes me think we will see a ladder match between these two at TLC.

Harper tries to nail Ziggler with the IC Title, but Dolph ducks and nails a Zig Zag, to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Well, we had Daniel Bryan return, and The New Day debut, together.  Daniel made sure we had a 20-man battle royal, since Rusev did not recite The Pledge of Allegiance.

For that reason alone, this show was a million times better than Raw Monday night.

This coming Monday, we will see Cyber Monday, so stay tuned for that.  I will talk to you then.

WWE Monday Night Raw 11/24/14…Get ‘Er Done

Tonight, a new era has begun.  The Authority are not in charge, after Team Cena defeated Team Authority, with Dolph Ziggler surviving a 3 on 1 disadvantage.  We also saw Sting inside a WWE ring, going face to face with HHH.

So the question becomes who is in charge?

And oh yeah, our special guest tonight is Larry The Cable Guy.

Raw is in 10 minutes.

We see footage from last night when Sting made his WWE in-ring debut.

Even when they aren’t supposed to be in “power”, The Authority kicks off the show.

They expected this kind of reaction tonight, because we don’t understand the word respect.  We don’t know what its like being a leader, and accept responsibility for their actions.

Team Authority would have won last night, if it hadn’t been for one man, who had never stepped foot in the WWE ring, and that man is Sting.  And because of her father, the only man who can reenlist them is John Cena.

But they are still the winners, they still have their desk jobs, they still have their jobs.  But they just don’t have control over the tv programs.

HHH asks us if we enjoy this, to see them humbled?  Do they want to see his wife cry?  What kind of people are us?  We are bullies.

Go ahead and cheer, but be careful what you wish for.  Because HHH knows there isn’t anyone that can handle this power.  They live in a univerise with finance, they do things that is what’s best for business.  Not for popularity, so who will deal with that?  John Cena?  Will it be Dolph Ziggler?  Will it be Sting?

HHH doesn’t know why Sting showed up, to make his career relevant for being in the ring with HHH for 30 seconds?  His first night could be his last night, because we are looking at the demise of WWE.

And now HHH is quoting us with Colonel Jessup, from “A Few Good Men”, in that infamous courtroom setting.

But without The Authority, there would be no John Cena, no Dolph Ziggler, no Ryback.  Who will take control?  Go ahead, and cheer, but mark his words, he will beg them to come back.

In comes Daniel Bryan.

We get the yes chants all over Indianapolis, while HHH and Stephanie leave the ring.

They can’t even leave in peace, with Daniel Bryan goating (See what I did there?) them with Yes chants.

Daniel tells us it’s great to be back in the ring.  Daniel tells us after Team Cena’s win, he is in charge of Raw tonight.

Just because Team Authority lost last night does not mean they are bad people.  So let’s hear it for Team Authority.

Here they all come, as a team.

Daniel isn’t a spiteful man.  He isn’t going to strip them of their titles.  He isn’t going to put them in unfair matches, like HHH and Stephanie did.

And he starts with “Mr. Money in the Bank” Seth Rollins.

Tonight, he will put Seth in the ring against 2 men of his choice against John Cena, and the man who changed the course of direction, Dolph Ziggler.

Whether Daniel likes it or not, Seth tells him he is still the future of this company.

But he is curious, what is Daniel’s idea?  Who will his partners be?

Daniel informs him the WWE Universe will select his partners.

Team A.  Mark Henry and Luke Harper.

Team B.  Mark Henry and Kane

Team C.  Noble and Mercury.

Voting will start now.

Rollins said they are just security, so Daniel said life is not fair so go ahead and step aside.

And now that brings us to his great, long-time buddy….”Corporate” Kane.

It seems that Kane has gone down the path, if he was in charge, he wouldn’t have that position of Director of Operations.  But let’s be fair, let’s ask the fans, should Kane be DOO?

The fans say no, and Kane will be Director of Food and Beverage.

Someone bring out a tray and a hairnet.

Popcorn and hot dogs.  No hairnet though.

Now for the United States Champion, Rusev and Lana.

Since he is the United States Champion, he should be more patriotic.  He tells us how great Russia is, and how horrible United States is.

Well, he has 2 choices, either A.  Compete in a battle royal with everyone else for the United States Title on the line.  Or….B.  He comes to the ring, and recite the entire Pledge of Allegiance.

Rusev leaves the ramp, without telling us.

Tonight, Luke Harper will compete by himself and put the Intercontinental Title, against “The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose.

And this leaves Mark Henry.

A big guy asked Daniel for a match against a man who embarrassed him two years ago at Wrestlemania.  That man is Ryback, and he can do that tonight because that is what he does.

Ryback Vs Mark Henry is now.

A rather quick match, with Ryback hitting a Meathook Clothesline.

HHH and Stephanie are leaving backstage.  They run into Vince McMahon.

Vince isn’t angry, he’s just disappointed.  He made insurmountable odds at Survivor Series, because they have to make insurmountable odds to make it in the corporate business.  How does it feel?  To have those fans treat you?

Sorry?  Sorry?  THE HELL YOU’RE SORRY!!  He orders them to get into the limo, and they drive away into the moonlight drive.

IC Title match is set now….Dean Ambrose Vs Luke Harper.

Harper shoves Ambrose into the ref, and Harper is DQ’d, but Dean elbows Luke.  And now come the chairs.

At TLC, it’s Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt in a TLC match.

The fans want tables, but we get tables and a ladder.

But Bray Wyatt shows up from behind, and nails Sister Abigail.

Now it’s Wyatt burying Ambrose with chairs.

Bray now stands up at the table, and feels the fans presence.

We get a replay of what we just saw.

The New Day is coming, according to Big E, Xavier Woods, and Kofi Kingston.

Oh boy, Larry The Cable Guy and Santino Marella are heading to the ring.

Larry is wearing a lucha mask.

Larry came here to wrestle.

Santino tells him he needs to train, and have experience.

What would his wrestling name be?  Larry is a fan of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, and his name would be “Stone Cold” Creamery.

Gold and Stardust are here, they are ready to compete.

They are in action, next.

Gold and Stardust Vs The Miz and Mizdow, Tag Team Gold is on the line.

The Miz and Mizdow retain their titles, but Miz had an “injury” being tended to, Mizdow did all of the work, and Miz tags himself in, hits a Skull Crushing Finale on Stardust, and wins.

Tonight, 3-on-2 Handicap match with Ziggler and Cena facing Rollins and 2 partners.

We get to choose on WWE App.

Kane is being chewed out by his manager.  Kane is chips.

Rusev is in the ring, with Lana.

This is not fair, America is not fair.  What kind of country forces their will at people?

Rusev doesn’t care who is in charge of Raw, he won’t be brainwashed by these dumb Americans.

Daniel Bryan shows up, and he will send a ref out for his US Title match,

But he will give them another chance, and send someone to “supervise”.

Sgt. Slaughter.

Slaughter orders the United States flag to pop up, and it does.

He orders them to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, and only Lana does it.

Rusev grabs Lana’s mic, and throws it down, sending her out of the ring.

Rusev wants to fight, it seems.

Enter Jack Swagger

Swagger catches Rusev and tries to hit a Patriot Lock, but Rusev gets out of the ring.

The Authority are no longer in power.  Daniel Bryan is in charge, and we get to vote who Seth Rollins will partner with.  Either Mark Henry and Kane, Mark Henry and Luke Harper, or the two stooges.

“Jingle All The Way 2″ is out on DVD December 2nd.

Santino orders a hot dog, with heavy mustard and Kane pours mustard all over Santino.

The new, and improved Fandango Vs Justin Gabriel is up now.  With Rosa Mendes.

Fandango wins with his leg drop off the top rope.  The crowd still does not care.

Last night on Survivor Series, Big Show turned his back on Team Cena.

The Big Show speaks, next.

We are live in Indianapolis, with the Colts in the house.

Big Show comes out.

People say he is a “bad guy” but he’s not a bad guy.  He is a human being that made a mistake.  There isn’t a person alive who hasn’t made a mistake.  Don’t misunderstand what happened.  He despises The Authority.  They made him do some horrible things last year, to people like Daniel Bryan.

Big Show made a snap decision, and he panicked.  Dolph Ziggler was knocked out, Cena could barely get up to his feet.  He saw three fresh members of The Authority.  He did one fateful mistake, and he hopes they can forgive him.  He understands the boos, but this isn’t the time for it.  If Big Show could go back again, knowing how things could turn out, he wouldn’t have done what he did.

He has put his body on the line for 20 years, and he thinks we should give him a mulligan.  So let’s pretend it didn’t happen.

The fans are giving him a you sold out chant.

How dare we all judge him on the decisions he make.  How dare we pass judgment on him, when he has everything on the line.  He is not a traitor, he is The Big Show and he deserves respect.

If any of you cowards in the back have something to say, say it to his face.

Erick Rowan comes out.

Big Show is not impressed.

He makes fun at Erick, and tells him this ring is made for men.

Big Show orders him to go back to the ramp, and Erick tells him he doesn’t like bullies.  He kicks Big Show out of the ring.

3-on-2 Handicap match, who will Seth Rollins’ partner be?  We can vote on the WWE App.

Rollins is not impressed with Noble and Mercury.

Ziggler believes in them, and he asked his 1.4 million followers to vote for the two of them.

Brie Bella, with the new Divas Champion Nikki Bella.

AJ Lee is in the ring, and she said the divas title look good with her shoes, and lesb-i-honest….Brie proved she could be a bigger skank than her sister.

AJ Vs Brie, is now.

Brie wins with a rollup, because Nikki snaps AJ’s arm off the ring ropes.

AJ tells them that the two of them together doesn’t equal the kind of woman AJ is.  And she makes this blunt, talent is not sexually transmitted.

Daniel Bryan is in charge, and we see a 3-on-2 Handicap match.  Who will Seth Rollins’ partner be?  We decide, vote on WWE App.

Adam Rose and the bunny Vs Tyson Kidd and Natalya.  “Interspecies Match”, and we have Santino and Larry at commentary.

Tyson and Natalya win, with some unfortunate help from the bunny.

He is asking for some forgiveness from Adam Rose.

Ryback is standing by with Renee Young.

Ryback is hungry for more.  He wants to know where a good concession stand is at.

The New Day is coming….together.

The New Day is dawning…next week.

Kane is selling hot dogs and soda.

“The Big Guy” is hungry.

Kane throws a hot dog, and Ryback hits some ketchup and mustard.  He also forgot his nuts.

Renee Young is with Cena and Ziggler.

Ziggler told us it would take every last fiber of his breath, he would survive.  They needed a miracle, and that miracle was a man named Sting.

Cena talks about Daniel Bryan being in charge, and tonight….the man that runs this place will team with The Showoff, you can consider this show, stolen.

Our main event is next, who teams up with Rollins?

Rollins will now have the J & J Security as his partners, dressed in suits as our main event.

Cena and Ziggler pinned J & J Security, with AA and Zig Zag, respectively.

Rollins runs away from the ring, but Daniel Bryan runs out and throws Rollins back, is met with an AA.

Just when all three men celebrate with the Yes chants, we get the Anonymous Raw General Manager?

Next week is Cyber Raw, whatever that means, according to Cole.

The show ends with that damn beeping noise over, and over.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Well, after an epic ending last night, we get a long and painful Raw that gave us 3 segments of Larry The Cable Guy.  You figure that out.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Did they drop the ball here?

WWE Survivor Series 11/23/14

Tonight, the job is on the line with Team Cena facing Team Authority in a Traditional Survivor Series match.  There have been rumors swirling around a few superstars making their return tonight.  Will that happen, and where do we go from here?

Survivor Series is now.

We are live in St. Louis, Missouri.  One hour away from Survivor Series.  We have the Kick-Off show, with Renee Young, Booker T, Paul Heyman, and Alex Riley.

They are talking about the magnitude of Team Authority Vs Team Cena.  If Team Cena wins, who takes over the power of WWE?

Tom Phillips is standing by in the Social Media Lounge, asking us who has the best survival plan on Team Cena.

Renee tells us Bad News Barrett will be here with the kick-off, and next, the returning, and improving Fandango, who has Rosa Mendes as his partner Vs Justin Gabriel.

Well, Fandago has new music, has a bit of a new look, and a new partner.  But the crowd couldn’t care.  Fandango wins with his top rope leg drop.

Tonight, we are in St. Louis.  And Dean Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt finally collide.

Preview video is showing.

Tonight, we will have a Fatal 4-way for the World Tag Team Titles with Star and Goldust putting their titles on the line against The Miz and Mizdow, Los Matadores, and The Uso’s.

Miz and Mizdow are ready for their title match.  Mizdow is of course impersonating The Miz.

It’s Bad News Barrett, making his monumental return after 5 months.  He can feel the excitement in the air.  It’s Team Cena Vs Team Authority.

If Team Cena wins, The Authority will lose their power, and if Team Authority wins, HHH has guaranteed everyone will lose their jobs, except for John Cena.  He is afraid Cena has some bad news.

If Authority wins, Cena will wish he was fired, but Authority, Barrett has some bad news.

If Cena wins, Authority believes we can’t move in without them, but WWE has always been around, so even without The Authority, they can flourish, and we will enter the era of Bad News Barrett.

AJ Lee Vs Nikki Bella tonight, for the Divas Title.

AJ gives us an interview with Byron Saxson.  AJ will find a way to survive through the Bella drama, to keep her Divas Title.

This is the final day of Brie serving as Nikki’s personal assistant.

Next, we will get an extensive preview of Team Cena Vs Team Authority.

Tom Phillips is giving us tweets from the people.

Preview video now of Team Cena Vs Team Authority.

A bonus match for us it seems, Cesaro.

Cesaro is a proud member of Switzerland.  He brings up World War II, and how the Swiss stayed neutral.  Even tonight, Team Cena Vs Team Authority.  The Swiss are staying neutral, but he is pushing his support for Team Authority.

He is saying Long Live The Authority in 5 different languages.

But now come Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter.

Zeb and Swagger are a part of Team Cena.  He calls what Cesaro is doing brown-nosing.  Americans don’t have to brown nose, they roll up their sleeves are get ready to work.

We The People.

Swagger Vs Cesaro, now.

Swagger makes Cesaro tap out to the Patriot Lock.

A limo shows up, and it’s Vince McMahon.

Survivor Series starts in a minute.

We are in St. Louis, we have Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show.

Vince McMahon kicks the show off.

Vince guarandamntees us this will be a Survivor Series we will never, ever forget.

He wants to bring out HHH and Stephanie.

They are kissing up to dear old dad.

Stephanie feels the love, and tells him he has given them this incredible opportunity.  They will make him proud.

HHH wants us to give it up to Vince.

Stephanie wants the crowd to pump up Vince, and Vince wants to move on.

He asks for John Cena to head to the ring, and here he comes.

Vince makes this clear to Cena.  if Team Authority wins, Cena will be responsible of having four men fired from Raw.  And if Team Cena wins, HHH and Stephanie will be let go of their power.

Cena wants to know when Cena wins, will they walk out gracefully, or will he have to kick them out?

HHH makes this clear, Cena is responsible for the livelihood of 4 men, he has nothing to lose.  And when they come back tomorrow, crawling on their knees, begging for their job, they will fire them anyway.

Stephanie tells John the fans will move on to the next person, meanwhile if Team Cena wins, they will still be running the show at Corporate Headquarters.

Vince corrects her, and says if Team Cena wins, they will be done from running the show.  And he has so much confidence in them, that the only person who can bring them back on TV is John Cena.

Cena makes this clear, Team Cena will win, and he is the only man who can bring them back on TV. So there is no chance in hell of that to happen.

Fatal 4-Way match for the Tag Titles. Gold and Stardust Vs Los Matadores Vs The Uso Brothers Vs The Miz and Mizdow.

The Miz and Mizdow win when everyone else does the dirty work, including a 4-man plancha.  Miz tags out, but Mizdow quickly tagged in, and pinned Goldust.

Crowd loves Mizdow, and is going nuts over this.

Tomorrow night, we will see Larry The Cable Guy on Raw.

Next Monday night, Stone Cold’s podcast is coming back, airing immediately after Raw, with Vince McMahon as his guest.

Adam Rose is feuding with the bunny, again.  Slater Gator sees the fun.

Later tonight, it will be Adam Rose and the bunny Vs Slater Gator.

Now, it’s the Divas Elimination Tag match.

Paige, Cameron, Summer Rae, and Layla Vs Natalya, Emma, Naomi, and Alicia Fox.

Naomi eliminated Cameron with a rollup.

It’s now 4 on 3.

Layla is eliminated now, by Alicia Fox.

4 on 2.

Do you see a trend here?

Summer Rae taps out to Emma.

It’s now 4 on 1.

Naomi picks up the win for her team with a Facebuster, pinning Paige.

We are live in St. Louis.

We hear from the Kick-Off panel, but before they show us footage of the returning, and “improving” Fandango, and a returning Bad News Barrett.

Team Cena Vs Team Authority just raised its stakes, when Vince told the world John Cena would be the only one who could bring back HHH and Stephanie McMahon on TV.

Dean Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt preview is set.

Ambrose Vs Wyatt is now.

The match was physical, both men worked their asses off.  Bray gets on the mic, and tells him it didn’t have to be this way.  The two of them could have ruled this company, together.  But he chose this path, and brought a chair in.  Despite warning him, Dean nailed Bray with a chair, for the DQ.

We have a chair, we now have a table.  Dean nails Dirty Deeds on a chair, and he puts Wyatt through a table with a legdrop.  Now we have another table.

Takes the chair and smashes him with a chair on table.  Throws all kinds of chairs, into the ring and we get a small EC-Dub chant.

Now we have a ladder folks.

Dean climbs up the ladder, and celebrates with the crowd.

We have our TLC match set up in 3 weeks.

Team Authority are having a pep talk.

Good lord, it’s now Adam Rose and the bunny Vs Slater Gator.

The bunny wins with a top rope dropkick and rolling up Slater.

Adam Rose is not amused.

Why did they put this on the PPV, who knows?  Especially since we didn’t see the reveal of the bunny.

I kid you not, this will be their TLC Kick-Off match.

Roman Reigns is live, via satellite.

How is his recovery going?

Reigns is getting stronger everyday, but he would feel better if he was there.  If he was here, he would cock this fist, and make it rain in this bitch.

JBL asked him how would he feel if Seth Rollins and The Authority win tonight, and their power would increase?

Reigns can’t stand Rollins, so he would throw a cinder block at him.  But at this time next month, Team Cena might be out.  Team Authority might be out, but Roman Reigns will not be.  He’s back in a month.

Team Cena is talking, and they will do whatever it takes to survive.

Divas Title is up now, Nikki Bella Vs AJ Lee.

Nikki Bella becomes the new Divas Champion, after Brie Bella pops up on apron, and kisses AJ Lee to distract her.  Bella Rack, bam!!

Just like that, Mark Henry is knocked out by Big Show.

5 on 4 now in favor of Team Cena.

Rusev eliminates Ryback, when Rollins snuck in after everyone was fighting outside, hit a Curbstomp, with a Rusev kick.

It’s now even, 4 on 4.

Rusev is eliminated by countout, when he tried to take out Ziggler with a table splash, only to have Ziggy move, and crawl back into the ring before the count of 10.

4 on 3, Team Cena.

Rowan is eliminated by Harper’s clothesline, along with an assist by Rollins.

It’s now 3 on 3.

Big Show knocks out Cena, turning heel himself.  Rollins pins Cena.

And Big Show walks away, eliminating himself.

It’s now 3 on 1, Team Authority.

Now is the time to push Ziggler.

Zig Zag on Kane, it’s now 2 on 1.

Ziggler rolls up Harper, eliminating him.

Ziggler Vs Rollins, one on one.

All hell broke loose here, everytime Ziggler had Rollins, HHH would interfere, kick the ref out, send his goons out after Ziggler, which did not work.  Even knocking Mercury and Noble into Setphanie and HHH.

HHH now did everything himself, knocking out Ziggler, giving him a pedigree, and calling for Scott Armstrong to count the pin.

But then we hear new music, and out comes Sting.  Yes, Sting is in a WWE arena, decked Armstrong and was face to face with HHH.

This felt like a moment,a Wrestlemania moment, but HHH lays the first move, Sting ducks and kicks him, followed by a Scorpion Death Drop.  He puts Ziggler over Rollins, and Ziggler wins for Team Cena.

Cena comes to celebrate with Ziggler, and the show ends with reality setting in with HHH and Stephanie.  The crowd sings goodbye to them, with Stephanie screaming this is not over.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

They built everything on this PPV to one match, and honestly, they built it to the ending.  You have to wonder though, since they did that, where do we go from here?  I loved that we have a Wrestlemania match set, with Sting Vs HHH.

That seems to be a safe bet, but the one thing I wanted to see, didn’t happen.  If Cena wasn’t going to turn heel, then why didn’t John help his team last Monday from getting their asses beat?  There just wasn’t any continuity in this at all.

If Swagger couldn’t compete in the main event, then why was he even there tonight?  Why did Big Show turn again, when he has turned for 18 million other times?

I did like to see Rusev not get pinned, but Ryback sure did, and he didn’t look good.

Everything has to make sense, which brings me to Sting.

Does this mean he is in charge of WWE now?  Why else would he even come out, because the rumors said he would?

I guess I should just shrug my shoulders and say oh well, because obviously Vince and his creative crew do that.

So will Sting beg Cena to reinstate HHH so he can face him at Wrestlemania?  There is still this untold story with Cena.  He is the man in charge, essentially, since he decides when to bring back HHH and Stephanie.

Then again, they never did sign an official contract.  What were your thoughts on Raw?  Send them to me, and I will talk to you tomorrow night for Raw.

Impact Wrestling 11/19/14…The Final Show Before The Storm

We begin the show with footage we saw of Roode Vs Lashley, and the chaos Lashley has caused since.

We are in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Mike Tenay and Taz welcome us to the show.

The World Heavyweight Champion, Bobby Roode shows up.

Roode brings up you only have a few friends in this business.  Eric Young is Bobby’s friend.  Lashley tried to end his career.  Austin Aries is another one of Roode’s friends, and he tried to take his career out.  He understands it, Lashley wants another World Title match, and he will get that.  But tonight, it’s not about World Heavyweight Championship.  Tonight isn’t about rules, it’s about a fight.  No referees, just Lashley coming out.

Lashley comes out to the ring, and the fight is on.

When chairs went flying, security came out to separate the two men.

Robbie E is here.  He gives Rockstar Spud an opportunity.  We will see if he’s truly a man.

Impact Wrestling will return in 2 weeks, on Spike TV.

Havok Vs Gail Kim Vs Taryn Terrell for the Knockout Title.  Video preview is being shown.

Knockout Title match is up now, Havok Vs Gail Kim Vs Taryn Terrell.

Taryn picks up the win, with the rollup victory over Gail Kim.  This match delivered, they gave them time and all three women worked hard.

Gail shakes her hand after the match, showing mutual respect.

Kenny King greets MVP backstage.  MVP is okay with coming in, and having Lashley win the title, but he’s not okay with people referring to him as a manager, or the mouthpiece, so he is here to remind people of who MVP is.

Last week, Samoa Joe had to forfeit the X-Division Title.  Tonight, we get a Fatal 4-Way to determine who the new X-Division Champion is.

Also, earlier tonight, Roode and Lashley had a fight.

Roode makes it clear he is not done with fighting Lashley tonight.

Our next match is Kenny King Vs Chris Melendez.

Kenny King is DQ’d when MVP lays Chris out with a chair to show the world who he is.  Mr. Anderson comes in and stops them.

Spud is ready to see what Mr. Carter has to say, and what he wants, Mr. Carter will get.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw, MVP and Kenny King laying out Melendez.

Kurt Angle checks in on Chris, he is on his way to the hospital.

Ladies and gentlemen….EC3.

Trouble!!

Trouble!!

Trouble!!

EC3 is going to give Rockstar Spud to do something he has wanted to do in a long time, and that is to fight EC3.

This is the battle of the suits.  Rockstar Spud wins, hand down.

He orders Tyrus to not step in and help EC3, so now is the opportunity Spud has been waiting for.

And Spud is ready.

It entertains EC3 ruined Spud’s life, but he is giving him the first shot.

He goats him into hitting him, fires up Spud.

Spud won’t hit him in the face, he will kick him in the balls, and he does.

But that’s all he gets, EC3 takes over and hands him over to Tyrus for a Chokeslam.

EC3 tells him he will take him out piece by piece, and he’s starting with his hair.  He has a pair of scissors, and cuts a few pieces off his head.

EC3 is taking his pride.

Kurt Angle screams at Kenny King for what happened, but MVP lays him out.

Moments ago, MVP lays out Kurt Angle.

Hardcore match now with Bram Vs Tommy Dreamer.

Before the match, they show an awesome video on the destruction Bram laid out before this match.

Bram wins a wild and bloody brawl with a Jumping DDT.  We had Magnus and Al Snow come out, but it was a clean victory.

Kurt Angle is irate over what happened, and he vows that MVP will pay tonight.

X-Division Fatal 4-way match is next.

They show us “Cowboy” James Storm cashed in his Feast or Fired briefcase last week, with he and Abyss winning the Tag Team Titles.

Earlier today, Manik talked to the Indian guy, telling him that Storm likes him, but he needs to let go.

Fatal 4-Way is next.  Lo-Ki Vs DJ Z Vs Manik Vs Tigre Uno, to become the new X-Division Champion.

Lo-Ki wins the X-Division Title, pinning Tigre with a Ki-Krusher.

A very emotional win for Lo-Ki.

MVP, Kenny King, and Angle are ready to come to the ring.

MVP wants Lashley to help him out, he asks him by phone.

Our main event time, Kurt Angle heads to the ring.

Ever since he took the position of Executive Director, he made sure this was the best in-ring performing.  But MVP took it upon himself to put himself in position to take the title, and take power.  He needs to take repercussions, and needs to take the punishment.

MVP comes out, he says he is sick of this company, he is sick of the fans, and he is sick and tired of Kurt.  So what is he going to do?

Kurt won’t fire MVP, instead he is going to fight him.

So Kurt decks MVP and the two men start to fight, but here comes Kenny King.  2-on-1, but MVP continues to shove Kenny out-of-the-way.  Mr. Anderson evens the odds and fights Kenny.  Here comes a spear by Lashley, and here comes Bobby Roode.

All six men fight to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I loved the matches here tonight, especially the Knockout Title.  But everything else had its purpose too.  They treated the two title changes as big things, and Bram is becoming a star.

The one thing I didn’t like were the fights, just a bit hokey.  To me, I would have focused on Roode and Lashley.  I can’t wait to see Roode Vs Lashley III.

But this is it, the final Spike TV show.  Although there will be other episodes, they will be Best of 2014 episodes.  If you hadn’t heard, TNA is moving to Destination America.  It’s a growing channel, and they will be able to add more specials, something they just couldn’t do on Spike TV, even being there for 9 years.  So it’s a new chapter, a new beginning.  I will add more about this in weeks to come.  What were your thoughts?  Send them to me.

WWE Monday Night Raw 11/17/14…Grumpy Old Cat

We are 6 days away from Survivor Series.  Tonight, we see the official contract signing of Team Cena Vs Team Authority.

And we see a grumpy cat hosting the show.

We see last week when Ryback took out Team Authority.  Is he a part of Team Cena?

The Authority kick off the show.

Luke Harper is officially a member, it seems.

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

HHH reminds us that 3 weeks ago, “The Chairman” Vincent Kennedy McMahon added a stipulation, being that if The Authority loses, they will be out of power.

We would like to see them lose, so they can be regular employees, like some of us.

Stephanie asks us what it feels like to want?

HHH calls us sheep, we need someone to lead us.  Isn’t it ironic that we cheer for Vince now, when many years ago, when he ruled with an iron fist, we booed him.

This is what The Authority does, they run this place like an empire.  But we want to see the inmates run the asylum, like John Cena and Dolph Ziggler.  That’s what happened with a company like WCW, and what happened?  WWE picked them up, like an auction.

Which is why we see the strongest unit in wrestling, led by Seth Rollins.  And they are facing the miscontent Team Cena, led by John Cena.

HHH is glad WWE Network is free, because we all can see The Authority score their biggest victory, HHH’s biggest victory.

Stephanie tried to get Team Cena to see the light, but they couldn’t do it, but tonight, they will pay.  HHH tells us that tonight, they all square off in matches, and at the end of the night, we will see who signs, and who doesn’t.

Stephanie introduces us to Team Authority.

Seth Rollins, Mark Henry, Kane, Rusev, and Luke Harper.

Luke is a team player.

Stephanie tells him he is a team player.  And they are a complete team.  Unlike Team Cena, who doesn’t have a complete team.  Which brings up Ryback.  They thought they had Ryback signed, but an agreement couldn’t be reached, and they understand, so yadda, yadda, yadda, they must move on.

Feed Me More!!

Enter Ryback.

The Authority wants what’s best for business.  John Cena wants what is best for WWE Universe, but Ryback wants what’s best for Ryback.

Stephanie understands what Ryback is saying, and while things happened, and some wish they didn’t happen.

Kane regrets what happened, and he is sorry.

Ryback has to understand, Stephanie respects what him, but Cena may not.

We see footage from last year when Cena had some choice words about Ryback.

Words speak for themselves, and she sees John Cena being jealous of Ryback.  Is that what Ryback wants?  For Cena to dislike him, so does he want that, or the respect for Team Authority?

Ryback plays for one team he can count on, and that’s Team Ryback.

HHH tells him it’s a wise decision, stay neutral.  For anyone else in the fight, the decimation begins now.

Luke Harper will stay in the ring, and face a man who spits in the face of the Authority, and shows off.  Dolph Ziggler, your time is up, your time is now.

Ziggler Vs Harper, now.

Tonight, a contract signing of Team Cena Vs Team Authority.

This is now an IC Title match. With Seth Rollins nailing Ziggler with his briefcase before the bell rang.

Luke Harper becomes the new Intercontinental Champion, nailing Ziggler with his Clothesline.

Luke Harper is a team player.

Rollins hits a Curb Stomp on Ziggler, knocking him out.

We see before the match, Mercury and Noble attacks Ziggler, with Rollins nailing Dolph with his briefcase.

2 weeks are left of a free WWE Network, and free Survivor Series.  It’s time to give us a preview of a WWE Network show.

The New Day is coming.

But first, The Miz is backstage.  He is with Mizdow.  They pitch an idea with Grumpy Cat about a summer blockbuster.  Grumpy is not amused.

They now have a Grumpy Stunt Cat.

Grumpy isn’t amused.

Adam Rose comes to the ring, and for some strange reason, the bunny is still there, even though he has been smacked around for a few weeks.

It’s Adam Rose Vs Tyson Kidd, again.

The bunny screws Adam, again.  This time hitting on Natalya, distracting Rose a bit, and submitting to The Sharpshooter.

Adam is about to attack the bunny, but the bunny ducks and now plays with Adam only to hop along.

Wrestlemania tickets went on sale last weekend.

Bray Wyatt interrupts the fun segment, he is here.

Bray heads to the ring, complete with his awesome music.

They have lied to us all, right from the beginning.  They have tried to convince us that love will make us rich, richer than a dollar bill.  But what they forgot to mention, everything you love can be ripped from you, like a drop of a hat.

But we know a man who has nothing to lose, is the most dangerous man.  Poor Dean Ambrose.

People like Dean can express himself, like an obligation, and not by choice.  Men like Dean Ambrose will always be alone.  He hopes Dean doesn’t mistake his generosity, because he swears he comes in peace.

That suffering was a gift, because Bray knows the pain he has gone through.  A mother that would rather drown in her own misery, than take care of her baby.  A father runs off from his family, Bray can be Dean’s salvation, and their salvation can intertwine.

Embrace this Dean, and he can make all of this go away.

Ambrose heard Bray, he heard him loud and clear.  Its like nails in a chalkboard, he can’t stand it anymore.  But he is trying to save him?  Why else would he try to throw bones in his past?  Maybe Bray is trying to help.  He learned something from Bray, its called video recording.  He recorded this earlier today, he is actually in the arena now.

Ambrose comes to the ring, wanting to fight Bray.

As you can see, Ambrose doesn’t need any saving.  At Survivor Series, Bray just needs to worry about surviving himself.

Earlier tonight, Luke Harper became the new Intercontinental Champion, and Ziggler was taken out.

Later tonight, we will have an official contract signing for all 10 men.

Feed Me More!!

Ryback is in action, next.

Larry The Cable Guy is going to host Raw, next week.

Ryback Vs Cesaro, now.

Ryback wins with Shellshock.

Cena is watching backstage, with Renee Young talking with John.  The Authority knows their future, their power, and their careers are on the line.  And you have guts, if you stand up to him.  All he can hope is he sees all of those guys later tonight, sign the contracts and are ready for Sunday night.

Does that include Ryback?

Cena knows its clear, Ryback is on Team Ryback.

Rusev is in action, next.

When we come back, we see Rusev and Lana.  Lana tell us her man, Vladimir Putin is all man, or something like that.

Heath Slater, dressed as Uncle Slam tells Lana to shut up.  He bleeds red, white, and blue.  Calls Rusev a son of a bitch, and Rusev kicks Slater.

Destroying him in less than 20 seconds, making him tap to The Accolade.

Grumpy Cat is not amused.

The Miz wants to do a buddy movie with Grumpy Cat, she gets the girl, and Miz stays on for the sequel.

Erik Rowan shows up, he wants that cat.  And Erik takes the stunt cat.

Grumpy Cat is not amused.

The Big Show heads to the ring.

Just as Big Show is set for his match, Stephanie McMahon shows up.

She tells him that Big Show was always in someone’s shadow.  He always wanted to be the guy, but he always wanted to make it up to the crowd, but it’s not the fans who give Show his chance, it’s The Authority.

Stephanie makes Show an offer that if he ducks out of this match this Sunday, he will be the only current, active member of the WWE Hall of Fame.

What do you say Show?  Do not listen to the fans, listen to yourself.

Show’s answer is no.

Sheamus shows up, and is proud of being a part of Team Cena, just like Big Show.  Because it is an honor to put them both out of power.  The only way next week they can see them, is to buy a ticket.

Stephanie tells Sheamus that he is not a legal American.  It would be a “shame” if he finds himself deported.  But she wants to show she is all about opportunity, which means they will face each other, and the winner will get a WWE World Championship match, down the road.

Sheamus Vs Big Show, now.

The match ends in a no contest when Rusev and Henry come out to clean house.

Henry lays Sheamus out with a World’s Strongest Slam through the table.  Rusev slaps an Accolade on Big Show.

Where is Cena?

The Survivor Series Kickoff show will feature the new and improved Fandango, with Rosa Mendes.  Bad News Barrett will make an appearance, and Paul Heyman joins the panel.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw….Big Show and Sheamus being decimated by Rusev and Henry.

Divas time, it’s Brie Bella, dressed as AJ Lee.

We have an exhibition match, with Nikki Bella Vs “AJ Lee” and the real AJ Lee shows up.

AJ distracts Nikki for a bit, and Brie rolls up Nikki to pin her.

AJ kicks Brie for her receipt a few weeks ago, and AJ celebrates with her Divas Title.

Tonight, an official Contract Signing for Team Cena Vs Team Authority.

Big E is a part of The New Day.

And it’s coming.

Ryback is backstage, when Cena shows up.

Cena tells Ryback WWE needs him.

Ryback doesn’t like what Cena said, and John told him he saw the footage, and said he did it to his face.  But then they kicked each other’s ass, and he earned Cena’s respect.

The Authority are just spoon-feeding him, giving him promises they can’t keep.  Ryback isn’t stupid, he understands what is going on, and Ryback is always on Team Ryback.

Cena calls him selfish, and when he finally gets a chance to sit at the big boy’s table, he doesn’t want to.

Earlier tonight, Bray Wyatt and Dean Ambrose fight.

This Sunday, at Survivor Series, the two men will fight.

The Usos and Los Matadores Vs The Miz, Mizdow, Gold and Stardust.

This Sunday, Fatal 4-way for the Tag Titles are set, with these four teams.

Gold and Stardust, Miz and Mizdow won, when Starust hits Crossroads.

They never tagged in Mizdow, which infuriated the fans.

Grumpy Cat is amused.

The Contract Signing is set, next.

Immedately after Raw, on WWE Network, an exclusive first-look at The Randy Savage Story will air.

Earlier tonight, all three members of Team Cena were decimated.

So who is a part of Team Cena?  The contract signing is now.

HHH tells us this Sunday, history will be made.  The Authority will stand tall, because when it comes to the WWE…you love the WWE, right?  John Cena will tell us he loves WWE, but we have no idea what it’s like for them.  Every fiber of his family, every fiber of him is this.  This is the air they breathe.  They can’t lose.

Stephanie assure him they won’t lose.

And they won’t lose, and they won’t lose, they cannot lose.  This is the last chance for every member of so-called Team Cena to back out.  Because after this Sunday, trust HHH, they wished they had.

Stephanie tells them there is nothing wrong with backing out.  Her father challenged them to put together a strong team, and now all five members have decimated Team Cena all night long.

So come on out, with what is left of Team Cena.

Cena tells HHH he has jokes, and everyone will see this Sunday, for free Team Authority will lose, and they will be out of power.

Stephanie sees nobody, because everyone else values their careers.  He is left with one choice, and that is to wake up.

Cena tells her she will have no power this Sunday.  They try to sabotage everyone else, and will do whatever it takes to eliminate Team Cena.  But instead, they put these people to sleep.  He will find his own team and they will fight this Sunday, and Team Authority will lose.

He will even choose his own team from the audience, and he does so.  The thing that will get them to win is because they have more passion than The Authority.

They are nothing but suck-ups.

Cena tells us HHH and Stephanie will saunter to the ring, with their nose up in the air.

Cena tells us Kane will be eliminated first, followed by Luke Harper.  Then we will see Mark Henry gone, then Rusev, and we are left with their “golden boy”, Seth Rollins.

Stephanie speaks out again, and slaps John.  Now comes the fighting, he is ready for them, but who will fight with Cena?

Well, Ziggler comes back, then Big Show.

So it’s 5 on 3….but wait….here comes Erik Rowan?

Yup, Rowan is a face, and this shocked Luke Harper.

So Stephanie still laughs, because it’s 5 on 4.  They still have the numbers game, but here comes Cesaro?

Wait….what?

Yes, Cesaro, who has never been given a big push from The Authority laughs at Cena and is ribbing him.

Which gives us the real choice…

Feed Me More…

Ryback comes out, and we are ready for a fight.

All of them men fight outside of the ring, and we have Cena and HHH go nose to nose, (Joke there). Ryback sees this, and he saves John from a Pedigree. Now he and HHH go face to face, and that was epic. But before they could go toe to toe, Cena ends the show with an Attitude Adjustment, with HHH going through a table.

We end the show with Stephanie in tears, and Team Cena are standing tall.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

So with this ending, Team Cena standing tall, logic would say Team Authority would win this Sunday, right? I mean what is on the line here with Team Cena? And WWE needs to do something special, since Survivor Series is free to many people, and this way you want to add attractions, right? My bold prediction is this is the night Cena turns heel and joins Team Authority.

Think about this, Cena was never with his team members, and this needs to be that moment. Or we can do the predictable, yet boring way of screwing Cena, so he won’t be pinned clean.

Either way, Team Authority will win.

But Grumpy Cat rules, what were your thoughts of the show? Send them to me.

Impact Wrestling 11/12/14…The Wolves Vs The Hardys….Tag Team Gold On The Line

Tonight, Madison Rayne will face Taryn Terrell, we will also see Austin Aries Vs Bobby Lashley, and for the Tag Team gold, The Hardys Vs The Wolves.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Footage from last week, when we saw Roode Vs MVP.  Lashley ended the show with a spear, and blew right past MVP.

Lashley is waiting for MVP.  Kenny King shows up, doesn’t know where MVP is and Lashley flips out.

The Revolution is in the ring.  Storm has been waiting for Davey Richards, and his time is up.

The Wolves come out.

Edwards tries to tell Storm that no matter how many times he asks, their answer….

Davey grabs the mic.

He can speak for himself.  He has been hearing what Storm has been telling him, and many of it makes sense.  But one thing comes to his mind, Storm is out of his freaking time.

His answer is no.

So The Revolution attacks on The Wolves.

Storm has a steel chair, and smashes Richards’ leg.

The Revolution has their final say.

Revolution come back to the ring, with a briefcase.  Storm smashes Edwards’ head with it, and nails Richard’s leg with it.

Storm still has a Feast or Fired briefcase, and he wants to cash it in, now.

Here comes Abyss.

It looks like he is the newest pledge of The Revolution.

Black Hole Slam on Eddie Edwards.

He and Storm embrace, Storm tags out, and pins Edwards for the win.

He gives Davey an Eye of the Storm for good measure.

Our next match is Madison Rayne Vs Taryn Terrell.

Taryn wins an upset of a match over Madison, with the cutter.

Kurt Angle is on the phone, Lashley wants Roode, tonight.

Kurt tells him that Roode is doing promotion, and Lashley steps up.  He does what he wants, when he wants.  That’s what Kurt wants, right?

Kenny King is in the ring.

MVP isn’t here tonight, and Lashley is pissed off at us.  He is pissed off at Kurt, and he is pissed off at Bobby Roode.  And when he is pissed off, he destroys.

Kenny tells Chris Melendez they need to squash this, and asks him to come to the ring.

Chris comes out with Mr. Anderson.

For what Kenny had to do to him in New York, they are calling him un-patriotic.  Kenny loves this country, but calls Chris a fraud.

Anderson interrupts, and says this man is a hero, he is an inspiration.  He volunteered, to have his freaking leg blown off, so Kenny has a chance to wear those ridiculous shades, and his ridiculous outfit.

Kenny rejects the idea Chris calls him a wrestler.  Kenny King wants Chris in the ring, one on one.

Ken Anderson believes in Chris, these people believe in Chris.  When the two of them do square off, Kenny will learn he is better than Kenny.

So Ken is a role model to Melendez?  Well, role models are like Santa Claus, they are frauds.

He sucker punched Ken, and ran out of the ring.

Next, Gunner Vs Samuel Shaw in a No DQ match.

Gail Kim and Taryn are talking to Kurt about getting even with Havok.  Kurt will give us a 3-way match for the Knockout Title.  Gail Vs Havok Vs Taryn.

Our next match is an Elimination match with The Bromans and The Beautiful People Vs The Menagerie.

Angelina is pinned by Rebel with a rollup, making it an even 3-on-3 match.

Knux is pinned by DJ Z.

DJ Z is pinned by Crazzy Steve.

In Yo Face, Velvet pins Rebel.

Crazzy Steve pins Velvet with a kiss.

It’s now Crazzy Steve Vs Jessie.

Crazzy Steve pins Jessie with a Tornado DDT, picking up the win.

Eric Young is being checked on Jeremy Borash, from getting decked last week by EC3.  Spud thanks EY for watching his back, and he wants to know if he can watch his back tonight.

EY Vs Tyrus, tonight.

Earlier tonight, “Cowboy” James Storm cashed in his Feast or Fired briefcase to become the new Tag Team Champions, with Abyss.  He tells Abyss they have been here since day one, and Storm speaks the truth.

We see the new Indians wrestler there, and Storm seems upset he is there, tells Manik to get him out of there, and whispers something in Manik’s ear.

Right now, Eric Young Vs Tyrus.

EY picks up the win with a top rope elbow after Spud decked EC3.

Lashley shows up, and spears EY, and takes Spud out.

Lashley takes a chair through EY’s arm, and stomps on it, sending a message with a crossface.

Here comes Austin Aries, with a chair.

Austin wants to speak to Lasley.  He’s pissed off?  He wants to send a message?  How about instead of jumping at people from behind, do it to his face.

Challenge is accepted.

We come back and see Brittany reveal to Samuel Shaw Gunner was coming on to her.  Samuel is not amused.

Samoa Joe comes to the ring, with the X-Division Title.

Joe was injured last week.

Joe came out here, because something had to be done.  Sometimes the right decisions are the hard decisions, and he’s making the right decision.  Joe is not medically cleared to compete tonight.  He’s not medically cleared to compete for quite a while.  When he won the X-Division Title, he had one goal, to reinvigorate the X-Division.  When he first came to TNA, this is was the real division of the real, wrestling fan.  He knows there are men and women who put it all on the line, for a shot at this championship, and they deserve better.  Then there are the fans, who support Impact Wrestling week after week to see the best competition compete, and we deserve better.

Tonight, Joe isn’t shy making the difficult decision, even if they hurt.  Tonight, he relinquish the title. A new champion will be crowned, but remember this, that will not be their championship.  Because Joe will go home, he will get better, and whoever has that belt, Joe is coming for them.

Next Week, Kurt Angle made it official, we will see a Fatal 4-way for the vacant X-Division Title.  Lo-Ki Vs Tigre Uno Vs Manik Vs DJ Z.

Bram wants Tommy Dreamer in a Hardcore match next week.

Gunner Vs Shaw, no DQ now.

Gunner wins with a TKO through the chairs.  Brittany tried everything, but Gunner prevailed.

Aries Vs Lashley is next.

Lashley is DQ’d and after the match, he slaps the Crossface on Aries screaming for Roode.

Next week, Roode and Lashley have a fight.  We will also see MVP doing something he should had done a long time ago.  Don’t miss next week.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a fun show, nothing happened except new tag team champions.  We never did see The Hardys, but you have to think they will get a shot at the titles next.  Joe forfeited the X-Division Title.

There are rumors that TNA will make an announcement next week of where they are heading.  They must do that, what did you think of the show?  Send me your thoughts.
