NXT Takeover: 5/20/15 Unstoppable

Tonight, Kevin Owens puts the NXT World Title on the line against Sami Zayn.  We will also see Sasha Banks put her NXT Divas Title on the line against Becky Lynch.  Rhyno Vs Barry Corbin.  This and so much more.

Unstoppable is now.

We are live in Full Sail University, and our first match is Finn Balor Vs Tyler Breeze.

Rich Brennan, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

Before the show, Hideo Itami was attacked in the parking lot by an unknown assailant.

Hideo has a torn rotator cuff, will be out for a while.

Finn Balor wins the match with a Coup De Gras, after doing a dive off the top of the stage, outside of the ring.  Good match between these two, as always.

Balor is now the Number One Contender to the NXT Title.

Kevin Owens is watching backstage.  Either he’s not impressed with Balor, or he is but seems concerned.

A big dude from “Game of Thrones” is with Stephanie McMahon right now, watching the show.

Footage from NXT on tour is being shown now.

Emma and Dana Brooke are going to face off against Charlotte and Bayley.

Charlotte and Bayley win when Charlotte pins Emma with Natural Selection.

I just think Charlotte is ready for the main roster.

3 weeks ago, Sami Zayn wrestled on Raw, in front of his hometown crowd of Montreal.

Sami is backstage, getting himself ready for the main event.

The newest signees of WWE hopefuls are at ringside.

Rhyno Vs Corbin is now.

Corbin wins the match with End of Days.

This past Monday night, we see the impact Owens made on Raw, with John Cena.

The interview guy wants to get thoughts from Kevin Owens.

Kevin made sure Cena found out NXT Title is the real prize, over Cena’s title.  If Sami believes he will take his title from him, then Owens has some veteran “advice”, if he steps in the ring, he will show that this would be the final time we “see” Sami Zayn.

NXT Tag Title match is up now.  Cass and Enzo Vs Blakley and Murphy.

Murphy and Blakley win when Alyssa Bliss come out to distract Enzo. If Carmella doesn’t want to be the girl, then Alyssa accepted it.

She’s now with Blake and Murphy.

Eva Marie is in attendance, and nobody cares.

Coming up next, NXT Women’s Championship is on the line. Sasha Banks Vs Becky Lynch.

Sasha wins the match with Bank Statement submission, making Becky tap out, after Becky had an Armbar on Sash, but the Women’s Champ escaped to the ropes.

I loved the presentation of this match, filled with dram, excitement, and it started with something so simple, a champions/challenger entrance backstage, in the Gorilla Position.

Great job by both women here.

Becky Lynch is getting a standing ovation from the crowd.

Owens Vs Zayn, for the NXT World Title is up now, our main event.

The match ends in a no contest, after Owens just pummel Zayn. Sami Zayn was nailed into the post by Owens, and Kevin saw blood in the water so to speak.

William Regal came out and tried to stop Owens. This had Owens attack Regal, and gave him a headbutt.

Then we hear some new music, and it’s Samoa Joe. The beginning of his music was a resemblance of TNA theme. The crowd loved him, he was wearing a new Samoa Joe and was referred as Joe, so that’s the name he is using.

The two men had a stare down, with Owens leaving. Joe salutes the fans, and Owens comes right back, and the show ends with the two confronting each other.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I generally don’t like no contest finishes in main events of a PPV. It doesn’t bother me on a TV show, but a PPV? I hate them, but in something like this, where we get a debut of a new superstar, a major superstar that the fans knew, going in. I loved it.

It sets the future up, because we know Balor is getting the next title shot, but you can’t forget about Joe Vs Owens, down the line.

Something NXT does very well, that WWE does not do is plan in advance, so not only do you see the current product, but you also see what the future lies too.

Things are looking good for NXT.

But the best match of the night is the women’s match. Sasha Banks is making me a believer of her, as is Becky Lynch.

Overall, this was a good show, with the ending making the show better.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 5/18/15…Stephanie McMahon Returns

Right off the heels of last night’s Payback, J & J Security sent out a tweet that WWE’s own Matriarch, Stephanie McMahon will be here.

Seth Rollins kept his WWE World Title last night, with a Pedigree.  How does HHH feel about that?

3 titles are on the line tonight, can we call this Championship Monday?

Raw is now.

We are live in Richmond, Virginia.

The Authority kicks things off with a 20 minute promo it seems, and what’s a Raw without a 20 minute promo kicking things off?

Stephanie asks us if we missed her?  The crowd all says no.  It was such a successful night last night for WWE and The Authority.  And life is sweeter when you win, not that we would ever see that.  But Seth Rollins, the WWE World Champion defeated 3 men in one night.

HHH gloats about being right for choosing Seth Rollins as the “future” of WWE.  He hates to say he told us so, but he told us so.

Stephanie brings up tonight, we celebrate the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, called Seth Rollins:  The Architect of Life.

Now Seth’s 3 opponents will head to the back of the line.  It’s true, as HHH said this is about champions, and those 3 men don’t know how to win the big matches.

But speaking of championships, we see the Intercontinental Championship.

And of course, Stephanie was right all along about Daniel Bryan.  He has vacated 2 titles in 2 years, and his body can’t hold up the punishment.

Which is why HHH tell us the IC Title will be held up for The Elimination Chamber.  6 men compete for this prize.

And it will be featured on WWE Network May 31st.

Enter Sheamus.

Sheamus apologizes to interrupt, and the fans chant he looks stupid.

Sheamus is a big fan of both of them, Stephanie likes his look.

Sheamus brings up we don’t need The Elimination Chamber match, because Sheamus was the one who ended the silly Yes Movement.

We see last month on Smackdown, Daniel’s last match against Sheamus.

So they need to do what is best for business, and give Sheamus the IC Title.

Feed Me More….

Ryback comes to the ring.

Ryback agrees with Richmond, Sheamus looks stupid.

Daniel Bryan has more heart, more fire, and more determination that Sheamus will ever be.

We get the Yes chants, and Stephanie talks, but “The Big Guy” is talking.

Daniel may not be the size of Ryback and Sheamus, but he has the fire and has put his body on the line for the IC Title.

Sheamus loves to pick on little guys, how about Sheamus picking on “The Big Guy”?

Stephanie assures that the two will be in The Elimination Chamber match, and HHH tells us they can wrestle each other, now.

Sheamus picks up a cheap victory, pretending his eye was hurt and when the ref’s back was turned, Sheamus nails a Brogue Kick.

2 of the 6 men in the Chamber match will be Ryback and Sheamus.  Other 4 men will be revealed tonight.

Tonight, Seth Rollins:  Architect Of A Dream.

HHH and Stephanie thank Kane for helping Rollins, and Kane saw a different side to Seth.  He thinks he has grown up.

Rollins has Champaign to celebrate.  Kane deserves it too, because Rollins saved his job.

Dean Ambrose shows up, he beat Rollins the last time they faced one on one.  So the way he sees it, he will grant Seth a rematch in 2 weeks at Elimination Chamber….only if Rollins puts the WWE World Title on the line.

Seth brings up what HHH and Steph said before about Ambrose joining Orton and Reigns at the back of the line.

HHH tells Kane he can handle this, and Kane tells Seth he will choose who his next opponent is, and Seth wants nothing to do with Ambrose.

Dean tells Kane he should be a shame of himself for being nothing but a butler.  “The Devil’s Favorite Seed” being a butler.

Kane orders Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt tonight.

Renee Young is in the ring, bringing out Neville.

Neville will face Barrett next, but he debuted in WWE the night after Wrestlemania, and how does it feel being a WWE superstar?

Neville said there is nothing like being a WWE superstar.  And while he has his doubters, he loves proving them all.  And he feels 10 feet tall when he is up in the air.

Renee asks him how was the transition from being the longest reigning NXT Champion, to being a WWE Superstar.

Here comes Bo Dallas.

Bo talks about the little engine that could, but he doesn’t BOlieve Neville will last in the WWE ring.

Neville reminds us that he BOlieved he beat Bo Dallas for the NXT Title.

Bo attacked Neville, and went for his knee.

Enter King Barrett.

Neville’s knee was giving him problems, he slipped on the ropes and King Barrett took over, with a Bull Hammer.

Now comes Bo Dallas to lay a boot on Neville’s knee.

Last night, John Cena defeated Rusev in an I Quit match, and later tonight, we will see a John Cena US Title Open Challenge.

But next, Rusev’s reaction.

There is no Lana tonight, which the fans hate.  Lana needs to learn her place, and she does not speak for him.  Rusev speaks our stupid English language well, and he did not say I Quit.

We want Lana.

There is no Lana, shutup.

John Cena did not make him say I Quit, Rusev crushed John Cena.

He wants to restart the match, right now.

Here comes Lana.

Rusev asked Lana not to show up, and Rusev told her not to show up.  Lana wanted to explain herself, and Rusev is misunderstood.

She believes in Rusev, and has believed in him since day one.  She believed that Rusev would be the first man to make John Cena say I Quit.  But that didn’t happen, that was a disappointment, but she was here to protect him.

He tells her she is nothing, and Lana told him that she cares about him, so what she supposed to do?  Just stand there, and hear Rusev scream in pain.  He said I Quit three times in Bulgarian.

Rusev tells Lana he doesn’t need her, nobody needs Lana.  Her feelings are weak, and he orders her to leave.

And she does.

Rusev!!

Last night, we get a very brief The Shield reunion at Payback.

We will get a Seth Rollins Celebration, also tonight, we get a Tag team Title match with New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro, with Xavier Woods banned at ringside.

Ambrose Vs Wyatt is now.

Bray Wyatt wins when J & J Security come out to throw off Ambrose, and Wyatt hits Sister Abigail.

The Authority are watching this, and love it.

Divas Title is on the line tonight.  Nikki Bella Vs Naomi.  Also tonight, John Cena United States Open Challenge.  But next, Tag Title match is set for New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro.

We are live in Richmond, Virginia.  Cole, Booker, and JBL show us yet another set of Tough Enough audition videos.

Tag Title match is up now.  New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro.

New Day is DQ’d when they keep attacking Cesaro and Kidd.  But the challengers take care of them after the bell rings.

During the match, we find out R-Truth, King Barrett, and Rusev all will be in the Elimination Chamber.  So 5 of the 6 men are brought up.

But as this was happening, Lucha Dragons, Los Matadores, The Ascension, and Prime Time Players all came out, and took each other out.  PTP was left standing at the end of this segment.

So these are the 6 teams in the Elimination Chamber match for Tag Team Titles.

Roman Reigns returns this Thursday night on Smackdown.

John Cena comes out now.

Cena shows us the belt, so I guess The Champ is Here.

Cena gives us a USA chant now, it seems.

We all come from different walks of life, and he hears us every Monday so we all have our different opinions.  But we are all Americans, and he is proud to wear that red, white, and blue banner each and every single night.

This is a true symbol of excellence, and he gives anyone an opportunity every week.  We know WWE Championship is the championship.  But this US Title is OUR title, and The Champ Is Here.

So who answers the Cena challenge?

Kevin Owens….

Owens has the mic.

Hello John, he congratulates Cena for his victory last night.  He would introduce himself, but he knows who he is.  And if anyone doesn’t know who Owens is, then those people aren’t worth his time anyway.

Cena introduces him as NXT Champion, Kevin Owens.

Owens knows that Cena feels guilty about Sami Zayn’s injury, but the truth is Owens injured him before he answered Cena’s challenge.  And this Wednesday, Owens will finish what he started.

Cena now butters up the fans, by saying nobody can be called a waste of time.  Because without them, there would be no Owens.  Without them, there would be no Raw.  And without them, there would be no WWE.

So allow Cena to give Owens some advice.

Owens has done this for 15 years, he just didn’t get a break like Cena, until now.  Cena doesn’t give him any advice.

Cena gives him a warning.  Zayn fought, he didn’t give up, and he saw fire in Zayn’s eyes.  So Owens is going to have a big challenge set this Wednesday.  And Cena sees Owens as a scared little kid.  He doesn’t have that fire in his eyes, and if he wants to prove him wrong, then the open challenge is still on, come get some.

Owens tells Cena he doesn’t know him.  He has a championship, and he has nothing to prove.  They will meet someday, but on Owens’ terms, not Cena.

Owens kicks Cena in the nuts, and then lays him out with a sit down Powerbomb.

Switching gears, as Cole loves to do.

Daniel Bryan video from last Monday night.

Ziggler is next.

Ziggler Vs Stardust is now.

Ziggler wins in quick fashion with a Zig Zag.

Michael Cole is with Ziggler, who makes a bad joke about how his face looks right now.  But Ziggler is more hideous about losing to Sheamus, but he is ready to go.

Cole tells Ziggler that he is in the Elimination Chamber match to try to get the IC Title on May 31st.

Ziggler is ready for anything, any competitors.

Here comes Lana.

The crowd chants they want Lana, and Ziggler is okay with that.  She lays a kiss on Dolph.

One more kiss, and Lana seems to like it.

But now comes Rusev.

Rusev kicks Ziggler, and starts screaming at Lana, as to which Lana slaps Rusev, and Ziggler hits a Zig Zag.

Rusev is irate, and Kane wants the celebration to take place.  We see Adam Rose making out with Rosa Mendes.

Everyone is making out here tonight.

NXT Takeover:  Unstoppable is this Wednesday night.

Harper and Rowan Vs Fandango and Zack Ryder. is now.

Harper and Reigns win the match.

The Bellas are headed to the ring, but Stephanie wishes Nikki luck on her match, and tells Brie that she is hoping Daniel gets better, but offers counseling for Brie.  And for that, she wishes Brie not to accompany Nikki to the ring.

Nikki Vs Naomi for the Divas Title is now.

Tamina causes the DQ on Nikki, with a superkick.  When Naomi and Tamina attack Nikki, here comes Paige to help out Nikki.

This is her house.

BAM!!  RamPaige, this was a message….This is Paige’s house.

Earlier tonight, Kevin Owens sent another message.  He hit a Popup Powerbomb on Cena.

Then Kevin threw the US Title down, and stomped on it.

Backstage, HHH hugs Kevin Owens.

Renee Young is with Kevin.  He tells Renee that at Elimination Chamber, he will get his one on one match with Cena.

He tells John to keep an eye this Wednesday night to see how Kevin works in the ring, because in 2 weeks, the champ isn’t there, it’s here with Owens.

Seth Rollins Championship Celebration is up next.

The cast of Entourage will guest star on Raw, next week.

The Authority are in the ring and tell us something she enjoys more is seeing someone try to reach for that brass ring, and achieve it, and go beyond.  That person is Seth Rollins.

HHH tells Seth they have been behind him since day one.  They witnessed him winning Money in the Bank, then main event Wrestlemania, and win the WWE World Title.  Since then, he has beaten 6 men, in 3 matches.  He sees “The Cerebral Assassin” in Rollins.  And when he won last night with a Pedigree, HHH had goosebumps.

They are here to celebrate Seth Rollins.

They want to share some thoughts from The Authority and we start with Kane.

There are so many things he wants to say to Rollins right now.  They haven’t seen eye to eye with each other.  But then again, Kane is taller than Rollins.  But he can say Kane is glad he is still WWE World Champion, and Rollins is best for business.

Is that all you have to say Kane?

Thank you for saving his job, and he has a video to play for Seth.

A very nice video being played.

Jamie’s turn to speak.

It’s been a privilege to be at the side of Rollins.  And where he comes from, the cream rises to the top.  It’s been an honor to serve for you.

And it’s time for Joey.

Joey tries to say something, but Ambrose has something to say.

Ambrose was in the book, looking for the perfect Justin Bieber outfit.  But he couldn’t find one, so he will give Rollins another chance for a rematch, for the WWE World Title.

Rollins reminds Ambrose he is at the back of the line.

Ambrose wants his title match, or else.

Stephanie reminds Ambrose that he lost last night.  But Seth is a fighting champion, and he won’t be intimidated by Ambrose, so Seth, get him.

Ambrose has his way going after Rollins, and even has a cinder block set up, with Rollins head.  Ambrose threatens to hit Rollins with a chair on it, but Stephanie agrees to the match.  Ambrose will get a WWE World Title shot with Rollins.

Ambrose is about to hit him with a chair anyway, and The Authority help out Rollins.  Ambrose has things going his way and is about to hit Kane with Dirty Deeds.  But Rollins saves Kane, again and hits a Pedigree.

The show ends with Rollins standing tall, and telling us he is the champion.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a fun Raw tonight, and WWE will have a big 2 weeks ahead of them, starting last night on Payback.  Then tonight’s Raw, which saw the first confrontation between Owens and Cena.  We also have NXT’s show Wednesday night, which I will see Thursday, sorry but my Cavaliers will be playing Wednesday night, and then Elimination Chamber on May 31st.

We also have a big title match set in two weeks between Ambrose and Rollins.  The 2 members of The Shield battle it out.

We finally have a Lana babyface turn, it seems.  When she told us she is a Dolph Ziggler fan, and the Elimination Chamber match should be fun for the IC Title.

The one disappointing thing though was Naomi not winning the Diva’s Title, which brings me to the question why did she turn in the first place if she wasn’t going to win the Diva’s Title?

All of these face and heel turns for the Diva’s is just too much.  So is Paige a heel now too?  Or is she just a tweener, and will do whatever she wants?

Who knows, what were your thoughts of the show?

Send them to me here.

WWE Payback 5/17/15

Tonight, this is the 3rd annual WWE Payback.  We will see a Fatal 4-Way for the WWE World Title.  Seth Rollins will face Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and Randy Orton.  We will also see John Cena Vs Rusev, for the final time in an I Quit match.  And, Ryback will face the challenge of Bray Wyatt.

Payback Kick-off show begins in 5 minutes.

We are live in Baltimore, Maryland.  Renee Young welcomes us to the Payback Kick-off show, with Booker T, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton as our panel.

Our Kick-off match is The Meta Powers Vs The Ascension.

Also, Fatal 4-Way for the WWE World Championship is on the line.  Is Kane’s job on the line?

Eden Stiles is in the back with Dolph Ziggler.

He is facing Sheamus.

Ziggler is here to prove a point, he belongs in the ring and it’s about getting into Sheamus’ head.  He will take care of the bully, and do what he does best.

Sheamus will join Tom Phillips in the Social Media Lounge, later tonight.

Tonight, John Cena Vs Rusev in an I Quit match.

Cena Vs Rusev video is playing now.

Does Cena have it in himself to quit?  He has never lost in an I Quit match.  So how can Rusev make Cena say I Quit?

Daniel Bryan video is playing now, of him giving up the IC Title, due to an injury.

Very sad to see.

In 2 weeks, at Elimination Chamber, we will have a new Intercontinental Champion, inside the Chamber.

The effects of Daniel Bryan giving up a title, due to an injury, again.

Eden is with The Bella Twins, wanting to get Brie’s thoughts about her husband, Daniel.

It’s been a tough road for him, but he has the biggest heart she has ever known.  She wants to thank The WWE Universe for his support, and Daniel is the biggest inspiration for tonight’s tag match.

Nikki assures Eden there is no distraction in tonight’s match.  Daniel is family, and with Naomi telling us Tamina is family, since day one, Brie and Nikki have been family.  And after tonight’s match, Naomi will not have an excuse as to why she has never been, nor ever will be Diva’s Champion.

WWE Tough Enough is coming back, and we see auditions of the show.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler join us for a bonus match.

R-Truth Vs Stardust is now.

Truth picks up the win with What’s Up, pinning Stardust.

Stone Cold Podcast returns after Raw on June 1st, with Austin’s guest being Paul Heyman.

That will be fun.

Ryback Vs Bray Wyatt is set later tonight.  We see a video of that.

Tonight, Dolph Ziggler Vs Sheamus.

Sheamus is with Tom Phillips in the Social Media Lounge.

We start with a dumb question of what made Sheamus do that to his hair?

Sheamus has changed the last few months, and he now resonates fear.

What tag team partner, past or present would Sheamus choose?

Nobody, he would do it by himself.

Another stupid question Sheamus wouldn’t answer.

Is Sheamus afraid Ziggler would beat him again?

Sheamus was goofing around the last time, tonight he is serious.  And Ziggler would be lucky if he lasted 15 seconds.

Next, it’s The Meta Powers (Curtis Axel and Damien Sandow) will face The Ascension.

This Wednesday, which I will see on Thursday is NXT Takeover:  Unstoppable.

The Meta Powers Vs The Ascension is now.

The Ascension wins the match, with Fall of Man.  Viktor pins Axelmania, brother.

Fatal 4-Way video is playing now.

Payback is now.

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

Sheamus Vs Dolph Ziggler kicks things off.

Sheamus defeats a very bloody Dolph Ziggler with a Brogue Kick.  The two collided heads, and it cost Ziggler the match.

Kane is on the phone, and we see Rollins interrupt him.

This is a big night for the two of them, and he just wants them to squash their beef.

Kane reminds him of the times Rollins has gone behind Kane’s back, since Wrestlemania.

Kane reminds Seth that while he loses his job, maybe Seth losing the title would make Rollins realize what it’s like to be champion.  He has reminded Rollins he doesn’t need this job, so perhaps he will just watch on, as Seth loses the title at the grip.  Kane hasn’t decided what he’s going to do, but when he does, Seth will be the first to know.

Let Seth be crystal clear, if Kane does anything to cost Seth’s title, then losing his job will be the least of his concerns.

Kane doesn’t buy it, especially when J & J Security step in.

NXT Takeover:  Unstoppable is this Wednesday.

Tag Title match is up now.  The New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro.

Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles is in the house.

We all need to be positive, and Big E asks Adam isn’t he sick that the Orioles haven’t won a World Series in 32 years.

Baltimore doesn’t have to be losers all of their life.  Just clap along, and you can change.

New Day Sucks….

Tag match is up now, in a 2 out of 3 Falls match.

Kidd and Cesaro win the first fall when we see the combination of Cesaro Swing and a Tyson Kick, pinning Kofi.

New Day wins when they use Big E’s power, and Kofi’s finesse.  The two falls are 1 apiece.

The New Day wins when Xavier Woods, posing as Kofi rolled up Cesaro to steal the victory.

A fun match here.

Byron Saxton has a moment with Ryback before his match with Bray Wyatt.

Bray is trying to work on Ryback’s mind, to doubt his skills.  But it’s not working, Ryback doesn’t fear Wyatt.  Tonight, the eater of words gets eaten.

Feed Me More.

Ryback Vs Bray Wyatt is now.

Bray picks up the much-needed victory when he worked on Ryback’s ribs throughout the match, a turnbuckle was exposed, Bray shoved him into that and hits Sister Abigail for the win.

3 good matches so far tonight.

Stone Cold Podcast returns on Monday, June 1st with Austin’s guest being Paul Heyman.

John Cena Vs Rusev in an I Quit match is now.

Cena wins the match when he choked Rusev with a ring rope, and was yelling Bulgarian, but Lana screamed he said yes.

We had Rusev hit an Accolade, and Cena pass out, but Rusev threw water over Cena and John leaped up.

Just a bad, and sad predictable ending here.

WWE Payback panel speak.

Earlier tonight, The Ascension defeated The Meta-Powers.

The New Day are celebrating their win backstage by drinking milk, which is brilliant.

Byron is with them backstage.

They are role models, they do not spit, they do not curse, and most importantly they do not complain.

They will face any team.

Byron informs them at Elimination Chamber, they will have to defend their Tag Titles in an Elimination Chamber match.

Big E. spits, Xavier cursed, and Kofi complained.

It’s a new day.

Divas tag team match now with The Bellas Vs Naomi and Tamina.

Naomi and Tamina win the match when Tamina took out Brie, and Naomi pinned Nikki.

Not much of a match here.

Lana is backstage with an irate Rusev.

I think he is upset, he orders Lana to leave.

We see footage now from last Monday night, when Daniel Bryan forfeited the Intercontinental Title.

We find out who is the new IC Champion with an Elimination Chamber match in 2 weeks.

Neville Vs King Barrett is now.

Barrett loses on purpose with a countout, after Neville ignited some offense.

3 bad endings in a row doesn’t help the end of this PPV.

Barrett attacks Neville with a Bull Hammer at the end of the match.

Neville returns the favor on Barrett and hits a Red Arrow for good measure.

WWE Tough Enough is returning on my Birthday, June 23rd.

Seth Rollins is ready for his match, when Kane runs into him.  He wishes Seth good luck.

Our main event is now.  Fatal 4-way for WWE World Title.  Seth Rollins Vs Dean Ambrose Vs Randy Orton Vs Roman Reigns.

Seth Rollins retained his title in an incredible match.  Kane assisted Rollins here, prevented Orton from giving Reigns a RKO, and Seth pins Orton with a Pedigree, of all things.

The moment of the night was for one moment, The Shield reunited when all three gave Orton a Triple Powerbomb.  But that changed, when Ambrose and Reigns took care of Rollins by putting he and Kane through a table, with a Double Powerbomb.

After the match, HHH came out and showed his support for Rollins, and the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The first three matches were fantastic, the middle of the show slowed the PPV, but the main event, as it should be was the match of the night.

With Elimination Chamber set for 2 weeks, the plans will be set in motion tomorrow night on Raw.  But phase one of the 3 major shows this month is over with, and it was a lot of fun to watch.

I completely hated the finish to Cena vs Rusev.  It was predictable, and I just think Rusev’s career might be done, he hasn’t won in 3 PPVs now.  The once “invincible” has become vincible.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send it to me, and I will talk to you tomorrow night on Raw.

Impact Wrestling 5/15/15….Hardcore Wars

Tonight, Team Angle Vs Team Young in a Hardcore War.

Impact Wrestling starts now.

Here comes the World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle, and Chris Melendez.

Mike Tenay returns to the announce table, with Josh Matthews.

Kurt tells us he went to war with Eric Young last week.  He decided to side with BDC, and it blew up in his face.  Eric has his backup, but so does Kurt.

Chris Melendez is one, a decorated American Hero.  Kurt won medals for his country, but Chris put his life on the line for his country.  He would be honored if Chris accepts to be a part of his team.

He also asks for The Rising to come out.

These guys stand up for what they believe in, the love of wrestling.  We love wrestling, these fans love wrestling.  BDC is like “cancer” spreading into this company, but Kurt defends his title every week for this company.

Drew Galloway tell Kurt he doesn’t need to thank them, he is Kurt Freaking Angle.  He represents wrestling, and is a part of The Rising.  Whoever holds the World Title is the best.

But Kurt, there will come a day when they go one on one for the title.  Drew wants to be the best wrestler in the world, and when they face for the title, Drew will win.

Kurt will do battle with him anytime.

Here comes Eric Young.

He earned that shot last week, but special guest referee, Bully Ray.  Melendez, The Rising stood in his way, and they screwed him.

And this is why Eric Young is the Number One Contender to the World Title.  Eric is the best, he is going to be the World Champion.

Angle tells him he tried to bring out the real Eric Young, but he chose to side with BDC, and when that happened, it bit him in the ass.

Eric won’t quit until he is the champ.

He isn’t going to quit.  He isn’t going to quit.

Kurt agrees Eric Young is the Number One Contender, but it will be his stipulation.  They will face off in an I Quit match.

These four men are a part of his team tonight.

Eric calls them losers, and he doesn’t care about them.  He only cares about his team.

BDC attack them all from behind.

Here comes Bobby Lashley.

“The Destroyer” takes out EY with a spear.

The last member of Team Angle is “The Destroyer” Lashley.

Team Angle Vs Team Young in a Hardcore War, tonight.

Also tonight, The Dirty Heels Vs The Wolves in match one of best of 5 series.

But next, Brooke and Rebel Vs The Dollhouse.

The Dollhouse win in easy fashion with double teaming kicks, with Jade pinning Rebel.

Taryn Terrell is on the mic.

The Dollhouse proved that not everything is fun and games with The Dollhouse.  Gail Kim will find out too later tonight, when Taryn reveals what “playtime” is like with her family.

Earlier tonight, Team Angle added Lashley to tonight’s Hardcore Wars.  What will BDC do?

Backstage, MVP confirmed Homicide won’t be able to wrestle.  Eric tells them he has a backup plan, who is crazier than Eric himself.

Ladies and gentlemen, EC3…..

Trouble!!

Trouble!!

Trouble!!

EC3 isn’t even in the Top 5 this week, that’s a crime.

On this appellate, EC3 wears a button, that represents the majority.  EC3 2015 for World Champ.  Ethan has tried to stay conservative with his words, he tried to be liberal with his fists, but this top 5 list is a big pile of red, white, and blue bullcrap.

Last week, EC3 defeated a man in his own match, that is number 3 this week.  The Number One Contender lost last week.  Explain that to EC3.  A conspiracy indeed, because in the political world, a mind is a landscape.  EC3 is determined to find out the answers, so Obama, red phone is ringing, because EC3 demands the truth.

Mr. Anderson….

Anderson is bringing a chair.

Anderson wants some truth too.

Listen Ken, EC3 already defeated Anderson, so with his rich mouth, and these poor people’s eyes, EC3 is done with Anderson.

Anderson tells EC3 that he already had it cleared if he beats Tyrus tonight, he gets EC3 another time.

Ethan isn’t interested, and Anderson calls Tyrus Ethan’s bitch.

Those are fighting words, and we have our match.

Anderson wins with a Mic Check.  He gets the rematch with EC3.

Impact Wrestling is moving to Wednesdays, starting on June 3rd.

Still to come tonight is The Wolves Vs The Dirty Heels, match one of the Best of five Series.

Sneak-peak of BBQ Pitmasters, starting this May 25th.

Last Friday night, we see James Storm carrying a Mother’s Day gift for Mickie James, and Magnus knocked a guitar over Storm’s head.

Magnus comes to the ring.

He will never apologize to nailing James Storm over the head with a guitar, he will do it a million more times, because he is full of crap and the fans know it too.

The fans are booing here.

Magnus wants Storm, but we get Abyss instead.

Magnus last week attacked his leader, THE leader of The Revolution.  Tonight, Magnus will realize there are consequences of his action and Abyss will hurt him.

We get a brawl now.

No official match, just a fight. But it ends with Khoya and Manik helping Abyss and Abyss nails a Black Hole Slam.

The Dirty Heels Vs The Wolves, first match of the Best of Five Series, starts now.

The Wolves steal match one with a rollup, seeing Richards pin Roode.

Backstage, The Rising are in this together. But Kurt only offered 2 spots. Drew chooses Micha. He assures Eli there will be plenty of more battles, but he will have to sit this one out tonight.

Eli isn’t sure, but he tells them to tear it up.

Kurt tells them this is one of the greatest teams he has ever assembled, but whoever Eric Young chooses, they will have to beat them tonight.

Taryn and The Dollhouse have some pillow talk. While Gail Kim was playing wrestler, she had a talk with Gail’s new step-daughters. And she has a sneak peek for Robert later tonight. Something she will share, next.

Earlier tonight, The Revolution attacked Magnus, and Storm is not happy about this. It has nothing to do with them, and he never asked them to do this. Do not let it happen, again.

The Dollhouse are out now.

Taryn tells them this is their house….The Dollhouse. This is Taryn’s time, and will prove she is the ruler of The Knockouts.

But speaking of playtime, we see pictures of Taryn with Gail’s step-daughters, but first we will see what Taryn will wear for Robert, and she shows off what she will wear.

And here comes Gail Kim. Gail tells Taryn she crossed the line. Marti tells her they were just playing, and she is ruining their time. Marti asks Gail if she wants a bite of her sucker. Gail tells Marti to stay out of her business, and if Taryn wants to prove she is the best Knockout champion, then settle it in the ring.

Taryn tells Gail there is no time for that, and in due time, Robert will know she is the better woman too.

Those are fighting words, as Gail takes care of all three ladies.

I guess The Bro-man’s broke up, I say that because we now will see Jesse Godderz Vs Robbie E.

Robbie pinned Jesse with a rollup in very quick fashion.

Jesse wasn’t ready, and nobody wants to see a 5-second match. Let’s restart the match.

Robbie agrees.

Robbie wins again in quick fashion with a rollup.

Jesse wasn’t ready, his tights weren’t even tied. Let’s do this again, winner takes all.

Robbie agrees, and the match is set again.

Robbie wins again, with another rollup. Jesse put up a bigger fight here, but Jesse is still not amused.

Now Jesse attacks him with the mic.

Jesse throws Robbie out of the ring. “Mr. Pectacular” is back.

Jesse tells Robbie he is the better Bro-man, and takes a chair around Robbie’s neck and flings him to the pole.

Backstage pep talk from both men. Eric Young’s 5th man is here, but we won’t see it now.

Hardcore War is next.

Anderson wants Tyrus in a cage, because it needs to be Anderson Vs EC3, one on one. Mr. Anderson will see Tyrus and EC3 later.

Hardcore War is up now. Team Angle Vs Team Young.

Lo-Ki kicks off for Team Young, and Drew Galloway begins for Team Angle.

This is basically a Lethal Lockdown match, without a steel cage.

Bram is a part of Team Young.

Team Young wins when Eric nails Melendez with a Piledriver.

After the match, he takes off Chris’ prosthetic knee, and Kurt tries to stop him, but Eric nails Kurt with it, and applies the Boston Crab, shocking out Kurt to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another strong show, highlighted by Dirty Heels Vs The Wolves, and of course Hardcore War match. But EC3 is right, the Number One Contender is a man who lost last week.

And that is a problem with wrestling right now, wins and losses don’t mean much. You lose a title match, you’re STILL in line for a title show, next. Just one of the irritated things.

Not much tonight from Storm, Mickie, and Magnus, but enough for me to want to see more.

I hope Eli not being chosen isn’t a sign of The Rising breaking up, after they just started.

Not a fan of The Dollhouse right now, the wrestlers were able to showcase their talents, and that’s good, but the gimmick I am not into right now.

I guess Impact is moving to Wednesday again, I guess the ratings will rise a bit? Maybe? Maybe?

What were your thoughts of the show? Send them to me. No show next week, for Memorial Day weekend, instead we get an encore presentation of Slammiversary 2014.

WWE Monday Night Raw 5/11/15…The Authority Are Back

We are 6 days away from Payback, live in Cincinnati, Ohio.  We see a limo enter the building, and it’s HHH.

The Game is back!!

And we kick the show off with HHH coming to the ring.  He is telling us that Daddy is home, and he wants to clear things up with Kane and Seth Rollins.

Here they come.

Seth Rollins comes out to assure HHH he is on the same page with him.  The crowd wants Cincinnati’s own Dean Ambrose.

Seth can’t function at the top of his game when a 7 foot “cancer” is trying to stop him along the way.  Perhaps he is jealous, because Rollins is the man, and Kane has never been the man.  Seth feels Kane is trying to assure Rollins loses his WWE Championship.

A few weeks ago in a WWE App vote, he gave the power to all of these people to vote in that his next title defense is a Triple Threat.  Then last week, he added Dean Ambrose into the title picture, and now it’s a Fatal 4-Way match.

Rollins doesn’t feel Kane is suited to be Director of Operations anymore.  Seth understands their history, but maybe its time to take the “old dog” in the back and put him out of his misery.

Here comes Kane.

Kane thinks that he needs to give Seth a Chokeslam, and the two start to fight.

HHH states that Kane needs to be on the same page here.  He understands that sometimes Rollins needs to be punched in the face, but he knows Kane won’t do that.  If Rollins doesn’t leave Payback as WWE Champion, maybe his services won’t be needed.

Kane is disappointed by that, because he feels Seth needs to be viscerated.

The two start to fight again, and HHH makes this clear Kane needs to let him know now, maybe this is the part where they amicably part ways.

Kane doesn’t say anything, which makes HHH believe they are on the same page.

All four men will be in the ring competing tonight.  He needs to know Kane is invested in this, so he will face Roman Reigns.  Seth Rollins will face Randy Orton.

Oh boy, Jamie talks now.

Jamie explains HHH has been gone for a long time, while Rollins has been competing every night.

HHH tells Mercury and Noble they need to be in a match, against Dean Ambrose now.

He orders Kane and Rollins to follow him out of the ring.

Ambrose comes out.

J & J Security try their best, but Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds, and the match ends.

Daniel Bryan will be here tonight, to address his health and the Intercontinental Title.

Sheamus joins us for commentary in our next match.  Dolph Ziggler Vs King Barrett.

At Payback, it will be Ziggler Vs Sheamus, again.  One on one.

Barrett tells us this Sunday, he will face off against Neville.  And he tells Ziggler he will become a Royal ass-kisser when he gets done with him.

Sheamus distracts Ziggler long enough for King Barrett to land a Bull Hammer.

After the match, Sheamus degrades Ziggler andslaps him around, but Ziggler fights back, only to be hit with a Brogue Kick.

Tonight, we will see Reigns Vs Kane, and Rollins Vs Orton.

Luke Harper comes out now, with Erick Rowan.  The team reunites.  But now, it’s Rowan Vs Fandango.

Rowan wins in 37 seconds.  The Brothers are back in WWE.

John Cena’s United States Open Challenge is next.

Who cares about what Cena has to say.  We know he is an I Quit match against Rusev this Sunday.  So who will he face?

Neville.

Neville had Cena beat with a Red Arrow, but Rusev interferred, and cost the DQ finish.  But Neville did technically win.

Now, Accolade time.

Cena passes out.

We Want Lana chants, but Rusev holds the United States Title, while the Russian flag drops down.

WWE Network is free in the month of May.

Still to come tonight, Orton Vs Rollins.

But next, Kane Vs Reigns.

The match ends in a No Contest, when Reigns takes Kane out with a spear through the announce table.

No match takes place.

Daniel Bryan will address his health and IC Title tonight.

Divas time now with Brie Bella Vs Tamina.

Tamina pins Brie after a vicious kick to the head.

Tonight, our main event is Orton Vs Rollins.

Earlier tonight, during the Raw Pre-Show, we had Axelmania Vs Sandow-Mania.

The match is on now.

Macho Mandow Vs Axelmania, now.

Here comes The Ascension.

They aren’t impressed with this.

Oh, how Ascension has failed in WWE.

We now have Axelmania do the big legdrop.  And Mandow hits the big elbow, or at least Conor stops him.

This will be our Payback Kick-off match.

Switching gears, Daniel Bryan will speak, next.

More Tough Enough videos.

Debut is on June 23rd.

Here comes Daniel Bryan, and I hope he isn’t going to say what I think he will say.

The last couple of weeks, Daniel has been in and out of doctors, and he has had some down time.  He doesn’t do well with down time.  He needs to be out where there is excitement, some energy.

Daniel needed to be back here, behind the curtain, so he can come out here and be a reaction like this.  It’s been years that the fans have treated better for Daniel as anyone in the back that has treated him.  Which is why it was crushing last year, when Stephanie vacated Daniel’s WWE World Title.  He felt like he let us down.  They didn’t give Daniel an opportunity, the fans did that.  But the hard thing for Daniel to admit was Stephanie was right to do it.  Because nobody knew how long Daniel was out, he was hurt and couldn’t defend the WWE World Title.  We needed a fighting champion, which is why he asked to come out here tonight.

Daniel had an MRI last week, they didn’t know how long he will be out.  They said maybe weeks, maybe months.  He might not even be able to wrestle again.  But despite that uncertainity, he knows what needs to happen to this IC Championship.  We deserve Wade Barrett, we deserve Dolph Ziggler.  We deserve Dean Ambrose fighting for this championship.  This title needs to be in this ring, and this is where he will leave it.  Tonight, Daniel officially relinquishes this IC Championship.

The fans are chanting Thank You Daniel, and they have it wrong.  For everything they have done for him, he has one thing to say….thank you.

He puts the title in the ring, and leaves.

Daniel gives us one more yes chant at the top of the ramp.  Will he ever come back?

Cole, JBL, and Booker talk about Daniel’s legacy.

We go from sadness to a New Day.

Xavier tells us to not shine on the negativity, shine on the positivity, because it’s a new day.

The chants do not work, New Day Sucks.

Kofi tells us it’s a new day for a second chance, and Big E. tell us Pete Rose does not deserve a second chance.

But Kofi tell us Kidd and Cesaro will get a second chance at Payback when they compete for a 2 out of 3 falls match.

Xavier gives the people of Cincinnati another chance at New Day rocks.

It does not work.

Big E. Vs Cesaro, now.

Cesaro picks up the win with a rollup, after Kidd took care of Xavier Woods.

This Sunday at Payback, WWE Tag Titles are on the line with Cesaro and Kidd Vs The New Day.

Breaking news, we will see The Elimination Chamber PPV, on Sunday, May 31st.  Exclusively on WWE Network.

Tonight, Orton Vs Rollins.

Now Titus and Darren Young give us a New Age Outlaws impression.

Here comes “The New Face of Fear”, Bray Wyatt.

Bray feels sorry for all of us.  He wishes he can reach out, and fix everything.  Wake us up, and make everything better, but fear is all around us.  And if you need proof, all you have to do is open up a newspaper, and turn on a TV and see it before your eyes.  Fear on a crumbling economy that will never stop.  You have this idea that if you can do something, you make it all stop.  Ryback has a major influence on us.  Here is a guy who shattered his ankle into a million pieces.  He has a doctor telling him he is afraid he can never wrestle again.  But a Ryback doesn’t listen to that, a Ryback fights again.  His hero.  But along came a spider.  Ryback has gone toe to toe with faith, and evened the odds.  But he has never seen a new face of fear before.  And now Ryback is saying why me?  It’s simple, because he was in Bray’s way.

Hey kids, you want Wyatt to tell us something our parents will never tell us?  Sometimes, the good guy doesn’t win.

Feed Me More….

Ryback comes out, and we have a fight.

Ryback takes care of Wyatt, and Ryback is ready for this Sunday.

Feed Me More.

Orton Vs Rollins is next.

Rollins loses by DQ when J & J Security come out and help Rollins.  But here comes Kane, with a chair.  And then we see Reigns and Ambrose come out.

Rollins is left by himself, when J & J Security bail.

Rollins is hit by a Dirty Deeds.

Kane does not move.

Then Reigns nails a spear, on Rollins.

Kane does not move.

Orton hits a RKO.

Kane does not move.

But Reigns hits a spear on Orton, and Ambrose follows suit on his brother with Dirty Deeds on Reigns.

Cincinnati’s own Dean Ambrose is left standing tall to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

They treated this like a big show, and top to bottom, Raw delivered.  Highlighted by some sad news however, that Daniel Bryan vacated the IC Title.

Question is where do we go from here?

Like I said last week, I like the added Fatal 4-Way match, but everything else is Extreme Rules, more or less.

I am not feeling the Bray Wyatt-Ryback feud though.  Both men need the win, but who gets it?

Where does Kane fit in this landscape?

And we have another big PPV in just 2 weeks after this.  So how do we get there?

I guess we will tune in and find out.  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.

Impact Wrestling Live 5/8/15…Eric Young Vs Kurt Angle

Eric Young begins the show inside the ring, demanding who the special guest referee will be for tonight’s big World Title match.

Enter Bully Ray.

Do you know who I am?

He’s Bully Ray, and he is the special guest referee for tonight’s World Title match.

Impact is live, tonight.

Tonight, feuds will be coming to a halt.  EC3 Vs Mr. Anderson.  The BDC Vs The Rising.  Kurt Angle Vs Eric Young.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Ladies and gentlemen, EC3.

Trouble….Trouble….Trouble.

EC3 is shaking hands with his voters, and taking picture.  Vote EC3 for future TNA World Champion.

He is on the mic, and feels the excitement tonight.  Something he has been clamoring for, something we have been clamoring for…#EC3WorldChamp

He has it on good authority the voters have spoken, and we will have a good old fashioned game of Arm Wrestling.

Chants of You Can’t Wrestle….Yes He Can are going on.

God Bless EC3.

Mr. Anderson wants the results, and 85% voted for a Falls Count Anywhere Match.

Why not arm wrestling?

Match is now.

EC3 picks up the win with some help from Tyrus.

EC3 is still undefeated.

Tonight, Eric Young Vs Kurt Angle.

Kurt Angle welcomes Bully Ray back.  He just wants Bully’s word that he will call it down the middle.  Bully responds asking him if he knows who he is.

He never said he would call it down the middle.

Gail Kim approaches Awesome Kong.  They may not be friends, but they need to be in business together, to get Taryn.  Is she in?  Kong nods her head.,

The Dollhouse tonight, against Gail Kim and Awesome Kong.

Beat Down Clan come out to the ring, with masks.

MVP has a live mic, which could make us feel uncomfortable.  He has this mask for Homicide.  He’s not here tonight, because someone attacked him in a New York night club, and needs shoulder surgery.

He’s not saying who was responsible for this, but it smells like something The Rising would do.  Yet, the fans cheer for them, and boo them.  When the American government needed Iraqi oil, they just take it.  Yet when they take the X-Division Title, we call them thugs.  He dropped the N-word, that was bleeped.  But MVP tells Drew Galloway that if he wants to act like a thug, he will beat down them.

The Rising come out to the ring.

Drew understands why MVP being upset, one of his boys was jumped.  But the reality of this is the streets isn’t Drew’s playground, the ring is his playground.  But let’s be honest, the man’s name is Homicide, not exactly the nicest name, so anyone could have jumped him.  Maybe MVP needs to look at his own boys.  He saw the look Kenny King had when he touched his title, where was he last night?

MVP isn’t hearing about that.  MVP doesn’t give a damn about wrestling, he cares about money.  The lifestyle it brings with it.  He was supposed to be the TNA World Champion, but Drew had to come out, and stop it.  So come on out here, and get the beat down.

Drew suggest we have a one on one match against MVP.

The fight continues, next.

Drew Galloway wins the match with a Future Shock DDT, and Eric Young swings a chairshot to Drew, and take out The Rising.

Eric makes it clear, MVP owes Eric.

Tonight, Eric Young Vs Kurt Angle.

James Storm has a special gift for a “special” friend.

Here comes James Storm.

James can come out here, and be tough, or beating someone up, or drink a beer.  But he wants to shift the spotlight to someone who truly deserves it.

He brings Mickie James out to the ring.

Hardcore Country.

He knows, just like everyone else knows Mickie is transitioning herself to motherhood.  If his mom hadn’t taught him from right to wrong, God Bless mothers.

Mickie promised one more match, and in due time, Mickie will give her fans one more time.  But another thing important to Mickie is her country music.

Storm can say she is a great singer, she is a legendary in-ring performer.  But he’s not.  She is an amazing singer, an amazing in-ring performer, and an amazing friend.

Open the gift.

He gave Mickie a guitar.

On behalf of the wrestling fans, James just wants to say thank you.

James had the guitar tuned up, and now he wants a giant selfie with Mickie James.

Here comes Magnus.

He has a gift for Magnus too, his gladiator helmet from when he started.

Magnus is offended by this, and he shoves James.

Storm is just playing around, and we see Magnus taking Mickie away.

James has one more gift for his son, Donavan.  A teddy bear, from his good old Uncle James.

This sets Magnus on fire, and he takes the guitar, and nails Storm with it.

Storm smiles when he comes through.

Knockout tag match is next.  The Dollhouse Vs Gail Kim and Awesome Kong.

Earlier tonight, Bully Ray reveals to be the special guest ref in tonight’s World Title match with Angle Vs Young.

BDC want answers from Young.  He wants BDC to watch Eric’s back, they aren’t friends, but they are good business partners.  The last time they worked together, they took the TNA World Title away from Bobby Roode, now they can take the title away from Kurt Angle.  And when Eric Young becomes World Champion, they become World Champion.

Think it over.

We now see footage when Gail Kim took part of her husband Robert Irvine on his cooking show, Taryn Terrell showed up backstage.

Knockout tag match is up now.

The Dollhouse Vs Kong and Gail Kim.

Dollhouse wins when Taryn rolls up Gail, after Marty distracted Gail long enough.

But now Marty is caught between Gail and Kong.  Eat Defeat….Implant Buster.

Gail and Kong are on the same page, now.

The Hardys won the Tag Team Titles.  But Jeff Hardy broke his leg in a motorcycle stunt gone wrong.

What will Matt do with the Tag Team Titles?  We find out, next.

Earlier tonight, we see Magnus nailing James Storm with a guitar.

Mickie James tells Magnus that he has to keep his temper in check.  He tells her that James disrespected Magnus, but Mickie tells him now Magnus disrespected her.

Matt Hardy is in the ring, with JB.

Jeff Hardy is in pain, and he is not a character at home, he truly is the “Charismatic Enigma”, and he has learned to deal with it.

A few weeks ago, The Hardys were on top of the world, but now Matt has no choice other than vacate the Tag Titles.  And now, it’s time for Matt to go home and figure out where he goes from here.

Austin Aries and Bobby Roode come out, shake Matt’s hand as he goes to the back.

Austin tells Eric that he hasn’t forgotten what he did, but he promised Kurt Angle not to interfere when he takes care of EY, but after that, he will get his chance.

Now onto other titles.

It seems like the Tag Titles are cursed, the last two times they have been forfeited.  While some may say that is a tough break, Austin sees this as an opportunity.  We see two guys who have been Tag Team Champions together, and they are the best team.

Bobby brings up these titles deserve to be defended, and do that as the best Tag Team the world has seen, Roode and Aries together.

Davey Richards shows up.

Davey has an issue with that, because The Wolves have been the most dominant tag team in the last 2 years.  And they deserve to be Tag Champs.

Austin tells Davey he has known him for years, and while he respects what they have done, he is by himself.

Davey tells Austin Wolves hunt in pack, and welcomes his brother, and partner, Eddie Edwards.

As of 12 noon, Eddie has been cleared to compete.  The Dirty Heels say they are the best team, but Eddie and Davey know they are the best team, and prove it every day.

So, let’s stop the talking, let’s have a match, and find out who is the best.  But not just any match, no excuses….a best of five series.

You want it, Roode asks, the fans want it, they got it.

All four men shake hands.

Tonight, Angle Vs Young for the World Title.

Matt Hardy starts walking away, but Drew Galloway intervenes.  He tells Hardy he has a tremendous amount of respect for him, and they have many things in common, such as they never back away from a fight.

Angelina Love doesn’t care about the Bromans breaking up, she doesn’t care about Gail Kim and Awesome Kong teaming up.  She wants to talk about herself, a record-setting 6-time Knockout Champion, and the one true Beautiful Person left.

We see Velvet Sky showing up, saying nothing, heads to the ring.

Angelina tells her she had too much going on to even give Velvet a call.  But she isn’t mad at her.  Angelina tries to hug Velvet, but she doesn’t hug back.

Angelina screams at Velvet to say something, and we see a spear.

The two start to fight, and officials break them up.  Velvet has no reaction.

Young Vs Angle video is being shown.

Eric Young doesn’t trust anyone, and tells Bully he wants to know if he will screw Eric of his title.  Bully assures EY he wants to see the two men tear each other up, he doesn’t care.  He will call it right down the middle.

Eric Young Vs Kurt Angle, for the World Title, with Bully Ray as special ref is now.

Kurt wins with a leg grapevine, making Eric Young tap out.

We had BDC come out, The Rising come out, Chris Melendez came out, Eric Young attacked Bully Ray, but at the end of the day, Bully raised the arm of Kurt and we end the show with the champion retaining his title.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a very good show tonight, TNA knew they had a live show to work with, and they certainly gave us matches, and storylines to continue.

The idea of Best of Five series matches with The Wolves Vs Dirty Heels is certainly intriguing, to say the least.  Even though it was due to bad circumstances, with Jeff being hurt, Eddie Edwards coming back was a nice touch.

Let’s see where this goes.

I also liked Velvet Sky returning, not saying a word, and just went after Angelina Love.  The potential of Matt Hardy joining The Rising, or maybe even feuding with Drew Galloway has promise.

We also saw Kong and Gail teaming together, and from the looks of it, this won’t be the last time.

EC3 is a future TNA World Champion, and that’s all we need to know about that.

Welcome back to TNA Bully Ray.  We missed you.

And Angle Vs Young was okay, but where does Kurt go next?

Overall, a good show that is showing promise towards the road to Slammiversary.  What were your thoughts?  Send them to me.

WWE Monday Night Raw 5/4/15…We Are In Bizarro World

No music intro, we hear Michael Cole’s voice.  In Montreal, Canada tonight, which means the fans will be a part of the show.

Randy Orton kicks off the show.

Payback is a fitting name for a PPV, because payback is what he is giving Seth Rollins in 13 days.  The fans voted him in a Triple Threat match for the WWE World Heavyweight Title.  And now Roman Reigns is added to the mix, but that is not his problem, because he is walking out of Payback the WWE World Heavyweight Title, and there is nothing Roman Reigns can do about it.

Enter Roman Reigns.

If anyone is getting payback on Seth Rollins, its Roman Reigns.

The Montreal fans are chanting RKO.

So will Orton just stand in the corner and watch Reigns get payback on Seth Rollins.

Reigns doesn’t care what Orton will do, just stay out of his way.

I guess Reigns has forgotten who he is.

Orton is a 12-time World Heavyweight Champion, he has wrestled in 12 straight Wrestlemanias.  How many title reigns does Roman have?  How many Wrestlemanias has Roman wrestled?  3.  So perhaps he should remember that.

Reigns brings up he beat Orton at Summerslam, and he would love to beat him again.

Here come The New Day.

Xavier reminds the two men that The New Day are the only champions at ringside.  And nobody cares about their Montreal boo-hoo.  They are so negative, but look at them, they are positive.  Because it’s a new day.

Kofi tells them it truly is a new day, so let’s forget about the past.

Big E. tells Reigns that nobody cares if Roman can’t win the big one.  And Randy, he can’t help it if Roman owns him so much, he has him on speed dial.

It’s time to do the clap.

They won’t do it.  But Kane has ordered them to face The New Day in a 3-on-2 Handicap match, now.

Reigns “accidentally” spears Orton, and Kofi pins Randy for the win.

Kane shows up on the ramp.

There is no shame in losing to the WWE Tag Team Champions.  If their evening was ending, there would be no shame in it, but their evening hasn’t ended.  They aren’t getting along, and Kane wants to exploit that.  Orton will face Reigns, one on one.  Because that is what’s best for business.

We come to the back, New Day are celebrating, and Kane just rolls his eyes, which is funny.

Kane runs into Rollins.

What he did won’t change anything.  The Authority will return, and will punish Kane for what he has been doing.

Kane made those matches, because that is what’s for business.  Which brings to Rollins.  He can’t give Seth the night off.  Last week’s main event on Smackdown was marred due to interference, so we will have Seth Vs Dean Ambrose.  And J & J Security is banned tonight.

Rollins reminds Kane he was the interference last week, and all Dean wants to do is hurt Rollins.

Kane can make Rollins tied up to the ring post, or tied behind one back.  Say one word, and he can make that happen.

Kane dares Rollins to say it, but he walks away.

Renee Young is in the ring, bringing out Ryback.

Feed Me More!!

Last week, Ryback had a surprise…Bray Wyatt attacked Ryback.

Renee asks Ryback if he knew why Bray attacked him both nights last week.  Ryback doesn’t know, but Bray made a mistake.  Ryback knows about adversity.

The crowd chanted for Goldberg, and Ryback answered back.

Ryback had 2 severe injuries and doctors told him he would never wrestle.  Bray, Ryback had to answer fear his entire life.  He takes fear, and negativity, and eats it.  He wakes up hungry to succeed, hungry to be a hero to the kids in attendance, and kids watching on TV.  He does this for the fans, and everytime they chant Feed Me More, it motivates him.  It’s about taking chances, facing fears, and going through adversity.  Bray woke up Ryback, and talking time is done.  It;s feeding time.

Bray shows up on the screen now.

You paint yourself as this untouchable force, but he can see the fear in his eyes.  Deathly afraid that people will see the facade.  He is afraid of fear, but people seek help, they seek guidance of a higher power.  Everything you love, everything you’re afraid to lose is all going to fade away.  In time, friend….so will you.

Run!!

Cesaro and Kidd are in the next match, set to face The Ascension.

Cesaro and Kidd win with a Cesaro Swing and a kick to the head by Tyson, pinning Viktor.

Seth Rollins walks to the ring.  Renee Young wants Seth’s reaction to his match.

There is no point to having this match, and second, Kane is a moron.

WWE 24 will air on WWE Network with Roman Reigns, after Raw.

Ambrose Vs Rollins is now.

Kane comes out, and he says that with Rollins bringing up there is no point to this match, if Ambrose wins, Dean will be added to the main event at Payback in a Fatal 4-Way match.

Rollins tells Kane he can’t do that, because the fans voted for a Triple Threat match.  Ambrose likes the idea, does the fans have issues with that stipulation.

Rollins doesn’t care what Ambrose is saying, and he doesn’t care what the Montreal fans are saying, because he doesn’t matter.

Match is on, now.

Ambrose wins the match with a rollup.  J & J Security come out, even though they were banned but this backfires.

The main event at Payback is now a Fatal 4-Way for the WWE World Title.

I loved this match.

It’s now Rollins Vs Orton Vs Reigns Vs Ambrose, at Payback for the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

We go back and see what happened earlier tonight.  The New Day defeated Orton and Reigns.

Tonight, it’s Orton Vs Reigns, one on one.

Moments ago, Ambrose defeated Rollins putting himself into the Fatal 4-Way at Payback.

Rollins is irate at Kane, blaming him for putting his match into a Fatal 4-Way.

Kane corrects him by saying the fans put this into a Fatal 4-Way and Rollins lost to Ambrose.  How about adding more people?  Kane wants to mold Rollins into the champion The Authority want him to be.  Kane has an idea.

Byron Saxton is with Lana.

He asks Lana how it feels to have The WWE Universe start to favor Lana.  Lana doesn’t know what Byron is talking about.

Fandango tells her she needs to feel the movement The WWE Universe is giving, by accepting her.

Rusev screams something at Lana.

Rusev Vs Fandango, next.

Lana is Fandangoing, which is glorious.

Rusev sends Lana out though.

Match is done, Accolade.

NXT will be featured on E:60, featured on ESPN.

WWE Tough Enough will return on June 23rd.

Entries are being shown now.

R-Truth Vs Stardust, now.

Stardust brought a bag, and it turned out it was plastic spiders.  Stardust wins with a rollup.

John Cena’s US Open Challenge is coming next.

A sneak peek of Roman Reigns’ special on WWE Network.

This Thursday night, we will have a Contract Signing of the Fatal 4-Way match at Payback, on Smackdown.

Cena comes out now.

The Montreal crowd loves him, it seems.  Okay, not really.

Cena says I Quit.  Those words have meaning.

Montreal crowd is digging this.

There are folks in Montreal who want to see Cena quit.  That he would walk away.  But we know him, we know he has dealt with this adversity for years.  Montreal knows whatever the hostility, whether you’re a critic, or an opponent, Cena never gives up.

So Cena faces Rusev in 2 weeks for the title, and if he quits, he doesn’t deserve a rematch.  But making Cena say I quit, is like Cena asking the fans to stop singing, it just won’t happen.  Saying I quit is testing a man’s will.

This is passion, the fans will say what they want, because they are passionate.  Rusev wants to fight Cena, he wants to win the title, but Cena is fighting for everything he stands for the last 10 years.  He asks the fans if they are up against the wall, someone puts a microphone to your face, asking you to quit, what is your answer?

No…

He goes to the crowd, and we all fight for what we believe in.  This is a city that knows tradition, and he is very proud.

So here is the sentence from a man who believes in the same, Cena is proud of the title and everything it stands for, and in 2 weeks, he will say the same thing….

The Champ Is Here.

On to the Cena United States Title Open Challenge.

We hear Bret Hart’s theme song.

Welcome Back Bret chants erupt.

Bret is here to introduce a great wrestler….

Enter Heath Slater.

The fans don’t like this idea.

Heath will not let his moment to become US Champion get stepped on, again.  Especially in Montreal, babay!!

Heath tells us he can speak french.

First, he gets RKO’d out of nowhere, then Rusev attacks Slater from behind, out of nowhere.  He is sick and tired of getting attacked out of nowhere.

Bret slaps Slater.

Bret wants to introduce Montreal’s very own, NXT’s own hottest superstar, Sami Zayn.

It’s Cena Vs Zayn….NOW!!

Cena wins in a tough match, defeating Zayn with a stunner and AA.  Sami appeared to injure his shoulder during the match, even dislocating it.  He still gutted it out, and made a very strong showing here.

I do love these open challenges.

In 2 weeks, at NXT Takeover:  Unstoppable, it will be Zayn Vs Kevin Owens for the NXT World Title.

Earlier tonight, New Day pins Orton and Reigns, when Reigns “accidentally” spears Orton.

Tonight, Orton Vs Reigns.

Next, Nikki Bella Vs Naomi, and we see New Day still celebrating their win.  Kofi and Xavier are lifting up Big E, in the back.

Now that was funny.

Renee is waiting for Sami Zayn, but New Day has other thoughts.

They were victorious earlier tonight.

New Day’s future looks bright.  Xavier will be featured on tomorrow’s E: 60.  Cesaro and Kidd intervene.  They admit the crowd is chanting New Day sucks.  And they appear to agree with that.

New Day isn’t pleased.

Divas action, is now.

Nikki Bella Vs Naomi.

Tamina is now aligned with Naomi, who both attack The Bellas.

Naomi tells them their rein as leader of the Divas Division is over.  This is what family is about.

Last Tuesday, Bad News Barrett became the King of the Ring, defeating Neville.

All Hail King Barrett.

It’s Barrett and Sheamus Vs Ziggler and Neville, next.

Barrett connects with a Bull Hammer, pinning Neville.

Tonight, immediately after Raw, WWE 24 will feature Roman Reigns.

Reigns Vs Orton is next.

The Authority come out before the match starts.  Jamie tells us he is the special ring announcer.  Joey is the special ring bell-ringer.  Kane is the special ring enforcer, and Seth Rollins is the special guest commentator.

Match starts now.

It ends with a no contest when The Authority takes over.  But here comes Dean Ambrose to even the odds a bit.  All 3 faces fight off The Authority, which ends with a spear by Reigns.  Then Orton hits a RKO on Reigns, and Ambrose nails Dirty Deeds on Orton to end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A much better show than last week, and we changed the main event, which worked too, adding Ambrose into the mix.  He should be one of the favorites to win Money in the Bank, because he needs to get that big push.  Fans certainly love him, and we know he can wrestle and talk on the mic.

Zayn Vs Cena was very good, but now Zayn is getting a MRI, according to Joey Styles on his Twitter page.

Lana Fandagoing too was worth to see the show, and the MVP of the show had to be New Day.  They were corny, but very, very funny.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 4/27/15…King Of The Ring

Tonight, King of the Ring is back.  4 quarter-final matches will be set here, with the semi-finals and final matches will crown a new King of the Ring tomorrow night.

Raw is now.

8 men will be crowned King of the Ring, we are in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Seth Rollins comes out for his 20 minute promo here.

Finally, last night The Viper learned what the entire WWE Universe has known for a very long time….you can’t out-smart Seth Rollins.

He is the man who single-handedly built the most dominant faction in WWE history, in The Shield. He is also the man who single-handedly destroy it.

He also was the man who cashed in Money in the Bank briefcase at the opportunist time, at Wrestlemania and beat two men….Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.

He also had Randy Orton last night right where he wanted him.

Orton wanted Rollins all by himself, and he beat Randy all by himself.

Kane doesn’t like this.

Rollins had Orton beat in his mind, by banning a RKO.  And he beat him with his own move, a SKO.

But every great general needs great soldiers.  So let’s take a moment, and thank Kane.  For doing what was best for business, and be the crypt-keeper.

The crypt-keeper is a character from 1990s that nobody cares about, and he is Kane, the gatekeeper.

Kane is not offended by that, and says if it wasn’t for him, Randy Orton would be WWE World Champion, and instead of boasting about being champion, he would be whining about losing.  Kane would rather be the WWE’s version of the crypt-keeper, than WWE’s version of Justin Bieber.

Rollins tells Kane hs is just jealous because Seth is WWE Champion, and he can wrestle circles around him.

Here comes Randy Orton.

Randy wouldn’t be complaining, but with an official saying Seth cheated last night, this deserves a WWE World Title rematch.

Seth said he had his shot, and he blew it.

Randy isn’t talking to “Catwoman”, he is talking to Kane.

Kane says Randy has a point, but here comes Roman Reigns.

Seth wants to know why Roman is here, and Randy tells Seth he is missing his giant.  And he is missing his giant because he flipped a table on top of him, just like this.  And you can call him the last man standing.

Randy, no disrespect had his shot.  And since “Justin Bieber” has the WWE World Title, then Roman Reigns deserves a shot at the title.

So Roman won a match, congratulations.  But Randy and Roman seem to have a common denominator, they both lost to Rollins.  So….

Kane interrupts him, and says they both have a point.  So how about tonight, they settle their differences and show them the real power of The Authority.

A tag team match, right?

Kane will have the WWE Universe decide who the next title defense with Seth Rollins at Payback will be.

Next, King of the Ring tournament starts with Dolph Ziggler Vs Bad News Barrett.

Barrett wins the match with a Bull Hammer, when Sheamus came out and made fun of Ziggler kissing Sheamus’ ass.

I expect Ziggler to do the same thing to Sheamus, later tonight.

HHH isn’t here tonight, so our main event is Orton and Reigns Vs Rollins and Kane.

New Day is in action, next.

Xavier has the mic, and tell us they are the champions.  They want to thank every single one of their clappers.  The ones that clapped for their struggles, for their hard work.

And Xavier wants them to work on a new chant.  New Day Rocks, we still have New Day Sucks.

It’s Tyson Kidd Vs Big E. now.

Big E. steals the victory, with Xavier holding onto the ankle again.

Footage from Cena Vs Rusev last night is being shown.

At Payback in 3 weeks, it’s Cena Vs Rusev in an I Quit match.

Tonight, John Cena Open Challenge Match, for The United States Title.

Feed Me More….

Ryback is in action, next.

Ryback Vs Bo Dallas, now.

Shellshock, match is over.

Bray Wyatt shows up being Ryback.

Sister Abigail, and we have the spider walk.

Ryback is the one Bray was referring to as a failure.

Cena’s Open Challenge, is next.

Here comes The United States Champion, John Cena.

John will repeat his mic stuff, saying he won’t quit, he will beat Rusev once and for all, amke him quit.

Blah Blah Blah….let’s get on with the challenger.

It’s Heath Slater, oh boy.

Well, Rusev ruins those plans, because he attacks Heath Slater.

Lana comes out to the cheers of the fans.  Rusev orders her to leave the ringside area.

Look at these people John Cena, they are all quitters.  They have given up on their dreams a long time ago, they quit on themselves.  And Cena at Payback will be just like these stupid Americans.  You won’t be singing “God Bless America” together, you will be saying I Quit.

Russian flag pops up in front of Cena.

Kane is backstage, Rollins is not upset at Kane, he just needs to know what Kane means that the WWE Universe will decide Rollins’ next title defense.  He just beat Randy Orton last night, he beat Reigns at Wrestlemania.  Is Kane too stupid?  What would HHH and Steph do when he tells them.

Kane thought that Rollins was the man, but it seems he just wants to whine and complain.  So we will decide who Rollins’ opponent will be at Payback.  Either Orton, Reigns, or a Triple Threat match.

We will find out after their match, later tonight.

Our next match is the quarterfinal of King of the Ring tournament.

R-Truth Vs Stardust.

Truth wins with a lie detector.  Tomorrow night, Barrett Vs Truth.

Also tonight, Orton and Reigns Vs Kane and Rollins.

Voting is open now, for the main event of Payback.

It’s Fandango time, against Adam Rose.

Rosa Mendes gets her revenge posing as a Rosebud when Rose hits Party Fowl.

Rosa can’t believe he chose them over Rosa.  She found someone who treats her like the sweet flower she is.

Now they make out.

Moving on…

Switching gears, Daniel Bryan is not cleared by medical doctors.  Renee Young has an update from Daniel’s wife, Brie Bella.

Daniel loves WWE, and every day he is away from WWE, it kills him.  But the WWE cares so much about Daniel, and Daniel in turn cares about them.

Naomi attacks Brie and tells her nobody cares about Brie, or her husband.

Brie Bella Vs Naomi, now.

Naomi wins with an inside cradle.

Tonight, Reigns and Orton Vs Kane and Rollins.

King of the Ring tournament match, Dean Ambrose Vs Sheamus.

Ambrose is DQ’d when Ziggler attacked Sheamus so he advances, and will face the winner of Harper Vs Neville.

Also tonight, Orton and Reigns Vs Kane and Rollins and we decide what the main event of Payback will be.

Damien Sandow is in the ring.

Allow him to beg for our indulgence, his name is Damien Sandow.  One thing is he will never lie to us.

3 1/2 years ago, he came into WWE wearing a blue bathrobe, and he tried to enlighten us.  Then, he was told he doesn’t entertain us enough.

He hasn’t lost his mind, he was trying to entertain us.  Remember Bret “The Hitman” Sanhart.  Or how about his Magneto moment.  Or Vince McSandow.  Then he had his Damien Mizdow moment.

He has to be honest, he lost alot of respect from his peers, but one thing he gained were alot of fans, and that means more to him and he thanks us for that.

You’re welcome.

Now, where does he go from here?  He’s not sure.

Enter Curtis Axel.

One thing Axel can’t stand is when someone tries to be someone else.  So Damien Sandow, whatcha going to do?

Now Sandow is mocking Axel.

Sandow takes care of Axel to the Elbow of Disdain.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, Tag Team Titles are on the line, New Day will face Kidd and Cesaro.

Bray Wyatt interrupts the fun, and he tells us that he knows him better than anyone.  Run!!

Tough Enough videos are being shown now.

Neville Vs Harper now, in the King of the Ring tournament.

Neville wins with Red Arrow, advancing in King of the Ring tournament.

Semi-Finals tomorrow night will be Barrett Vs Truth and Sheamus Vs Neville, along with the finals, exclusively on WWE Network, at 8:00.

Our main event, Reigns and Orton Vs Kane and Rollins is now.

Reigns and Orton win when Kane had enough, decking J & J Security, then decked Rollins, threw him back into the ring who was met with a Superman Punch and a RKO, for the win.

After the match, Kane showed us the results of the poll, and that gives us a Triple Threat match set for Payback.

Rollins was met with a Spear by Reigns, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This wasn’t a bad show, at times they seemed to drag things out.  But it gets people interested in King of the Ring tournament.  I have to think Bad News Barrett is the favorite right now.  I can’t see Sheamus beating Neville too, with Ziggler getting involved.

We also knew we’d have a Triple Threat match at Payback, even WWE knew that.  But here we go, does this mean Kane is finally stepping away from The Authority?  I hope Daniel Bryan is able to come back, because who wouldn’t want to see Team Hell No reunite?

I’ll be here tomorrow evening, giving you King of the Ring report.  Your thoughts on tonight’s show, send them here.

WWE Extreme Rules 4/26/15

Tonight, WWE goes Extreme.  Randy Orton Vs Seth Rollins headlines the PPV, inside a steel cage.  We will also see John Cena Vs Rusev in a Russian Chain Match.  Roman Reigns faces Big Show in a Last Man Standing match.  So much, and more.

But first, we have the kick-off show.

Here we go.

We are in Chicago. Renee Young, Booker T, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton are a part of the Kick-off panel.

They are going over the lineup tonight. We will see our first ever Miss Me Arse match, between Sheamus Vs Dolph Ziggler. Divas Title, with Nikki Bella Vs Naomi.

Daniel Bryan is not medically cleared for tonight, so on the Kick-off show, we will see Bad News Barrett Vs Neville.

New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro is added to the PPV now.

Tom Phillips is in the Social Media Lounge, for Extreme Rules.

Kane will be the guest on tonight’s show, you can ask Kane questions with hashtag #AskKane.

What will Kane’s role be in tonight’s main event as Gatekeeper of the steel cage?

We see video footage of Rollins Vs Orton, now.

Orton’s RKO is banned tonight, so how can he find a way to win without it?

It’s the “Young Lion” against “The Veteran”.

Also tonight, Naomi will face Nikki Bella for the Divas Title.

We see Naomi take out Paige two weeks ago.

Eden is standing by with Naomi.

Naomi is dropping the “good girl” image. She is about taking risks, and is tired of people judging her when they have no business doing that. She is walking tonight as the new Divas Champion.

Dean Ambrose interrupts this fun, Dean is here for a Chicago Streetfight, with Luke Harper.

Dean remembers Wrestlemania. He remembers 12 staples to his head. He is taking it to Luke Harper tonight. Dean Ambrose gets his revenge, right here in Chicago, and he walks off.

Sheamus Vs Dolph Ziggler in a Kiss Me Arse match, and we see footage of Sheamus laying out Ziggler.

Someone is kissing ass after the match, and I feel like it will be Ziggler.

Stephanie McMahon will be a guest on Chris Jericho’s podcast, featured on WWE Network this Thursday, after Smackdown.

Tough Enough segment.

Now we see the buildup to Reigns Vs Big Show tonight, in a Last Man Standing match.

Bray Wyatt interrupts the festivities. He tells us he is just like all of us, he is weak. Bray understands him. We all understand that a man must walk among the gods, but God must walk among men. You are a coward, and he is the new face of fear.

Will Bray Wyatt show up tonight?

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

He tells us Daniel Bryan isn’t medically cleared to compete tonight, but the truth is Daniel is afraid of Bad News Barrett. Because he is afraid of losing the Intercontinental Title to him, and who to blame him?

Since he is “The Michael Jordan” of England, minus the gambling problems. He wants to give us a bonus match, of Barrett Vs Neville.

And here we go.

What a great match this was, Barrett had many opportunities, but Neville wins with Red Arrow.

A great start to Extreme Rules.

Kane is joining Social Media Lounge, but he walks away after 2 questions.

John Cena Vs Rusev in a Russian Chain match is being featured now.

Who wins the match?

It’s time for Extreme Rules. Keep checking here for updates throughout the night.

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

We kick off with a Chicago Streetfight, Dean Ambrose Vs Luke Harper.

This match ends in a no contest, when Luke Harper drove off in a limo, and Ambrose followed him in the car.

We will see more from them, later.

Charles Robinson ran after them, which is funny.

We see HHH, and he brings Kane in to check on Ambrose and Harper. They run into Rollins. HHH wants both of them on the same page tonight. Rollins agrees, but he wants to know why Kane threw him to the wolves on Roman Reigns’ spear. Kane tells Rollins he has been a spoiled brat since he won the title. HHH tells Kane Rollins has a point, and Kane tells them both he will do what is best for business.

Kiss Me Arse match is now with Dolph Ziggler Vs Sheamus.

Ziggler wins the match with a rollup. Sheamus has to kiss Ziggy’s ass.

Sheamus is trying to get away, but the ref tells him he must do this.

And of course, Sheamus punches Ziggler in the nuts, and gives him a Brogue Kick.

You didn’t think he would kiss his arse, did you Ziggler? Especially in this stinking town. He told him he would make Ziggler kiss his arse, and he won’t disappoint.

So he shoves Ziggler’s head on his arse.

Wow, what was the point of having the match, then?

So it’s now New Day Vs Kidd and Cesaro, for the Tag Team Titles.

The New Day wins the match, and Tag Titles. Natalya slapped Xavier, Tyson kicked Xavier, Big E flew into Tyson. Cesaro looks on, and Kofi rolls up the tights, and holds on to them for the win.

The New Day were acting like heels, while Cesaro and Kidd were the faces.

Interesting dynamic here.

We hear from the Extreme Rules panel. They go over what we have seen so far, and they show us Barrett Vs Neville match earlier tonight. Neville picks up an upset victory.

Renee Young is with The New Day.

Positivity has taken over here, when they say New Day, we say new champs. New Day….sucks.

We see the limo come up again, with Luke Harper flying out and Ambrose going after him.

They come back to the ringside.

We have flying chairs in the ring, ECW chants, and Dirty Deeds. Dean Ambrose pins Luke Harper.

I loved that segment there.

WWE Payback is in 3 weeks, Sunday, May 17th.

WWE United States Title match is up now. John Cena Vs Rusev in a Russian Chain Match.

Cena touches all four corners before Rusev did, so he retained the title. The fans were digging Lana, so Rusev forced her to leave, which the fans hated. Shades of Marc Mero and Sable there.

The Champ Is Here, or something like that.

Renee Young is with Roman Reigns. Roman said Big Show can knock him down, but he can’t keep him down. So what happens when he gets knocked down? He gets right back up, and he will be the Last Man Standing.

Believe that.

Nikki Bella Vs Naomi for the Divas Title is up now.

Nikki wins when Brie kicks Naomi, and Nikki hits a Rack Attack.

So what was the point of Naomi turning heel if she loses the title match?

Rusev is irate at losing, and I believe irate at Lana. He orders her to walk away.

She walks into The Authority’s office.

Last Man Standing match is up now, Roman Reigns Vs Big Show.

Roman Reigns is the last man standing, giving Big Show a spear through an announce table, and he lifted the announce table and put it on top of Show, so he couldn’t get up.

A fun match here.

Kane is walking backstage, and Orton approaches him. Orton tells Kane they have known each other for over a decade. They have fought each other, and have fought with each other. Orton tells Kane when they are done with him, they will throw him out like garbage. Orton knows who he is, Kane, even if he has forgotten.

Orton Vs Rollins, inside a steel cage is up now.

WWE Tough Enough returns on my birthday, June 23rd.

Oh my, it’s Bo Dallas.

Bo Dallas tells us Chicago is number one….at not taking a shower before you come to the arena. Number one at not listening to Bo Dallas’ advice, and smelling up the arena. You need to listen to what he is saying.

Raise your hands, and repeat after him, all you have to do is BOleive…..

Feed Me More!!

Ryback comes out, and while Bo tries to fight back, ShellShock!!

Feed Me More!!

Byron Saxton is with Rusev.

John Cena didn’t beat him. He is a coward and a lyer. Lana tells Rusev that it is done. The final chapter of Rusev Vs Cena will be at Payback, in an I Quit match.

The perfect combination for America. John Cena will quit, like all Americans do.

Steel cage goes down, Orton Vs Rollins, isnide a steel cage is now.

Kane was involved, whacked both guys with the cage door. He chokeslammed Orton, Rollins, J & J Security. Orton gave Kane a RKO after a kickout, then Rollins hits a RKo on Orton, and escapes out of the cage, to retain his WWE Title.

The show ends with Rollins celebrating on the ground.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I had low expectations going into this show, but it was a fun night. I loved the Streetfight, and how it continued on throughout the night, with Dean winning.

I’m bored with Kane and The Authority however. Either he is a part of them, or not. That part just didn’t make any sense.

And Naomi should have won Divas Title too, because now why would she get another title match, when she lost in the ring?

We will see, and WWE has been teasing WWE King of the Ring is coming back on WWE Network this Tuesday. We will see tomorrow night.

What were your thoughts on the show? Send them to me, and follow me on Twitter and Facebook. The links are on this page.

Impact Wrestling 4/24/15….Night of Knockouts

After a 2 week absence, I am back writing about Impact Wrestling.  Tonight, we will see a special theme show….Night of Knockouts.

We will see a Fatal 4-Way to determine the new Number One Contender to the Knockout Title, with Gail Kim Vs Angelina Love Vs Madison Rayne Vs Brooke.  We will also see The Knockout Title on the line, with Taryn Terrell Vs Awesome Kong.  And for the World Heavyweight Title, Kurt Angle Vs Eric Young.

Kurt Angle heads to the ring, and he calls Eric out.

Last week, Kurt said he wanted the “old” Eric Young to wrestle him.  The one who won the World Heavyweight Title, not the “crazy” side of Eric Young the last few months.  Last week, we might have seen a glimpse of Eric, so which one are we going to see?

Eric tells Kurt that people have been calling him crazy his entire life.  But people had been spinning things from him, and saying things.  But last week, Kurt turned his back on Eric, and he didn’t attack him.  Kurt brought out the best side of Eric Young, the “real” Eric Young.  May the best man win tonight.

The two men shook hands

Enter Austin Aries.

Austin told Kurt the “real” Eric Young is the man who turned on his best friend,  Aries tells Kurt that he holds the briefcase, to determine when he gets a World Title shot.  Austin tells Kurt that he will get that shot tonight, facing Kurt one on one.  And he is going to put on a great match with Kurt, but at the end of the night, Aries will leave as the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

Eric is upset, as Austin leaves.

Tonight, Taryn Terrell will face Awesome Kong.  Also someone from BDC will face someone from The Rising, and now we hear from Taryn Terrell.

Taryn tells us she has the biggest challenge in front of her, but she will do whatever it takes to make sure the Knockout Title stays around her waist.

Fatal 4-Way to determine who the Number One Contender to the Knockout Title is up now.

Gail Kim Vs Angelina Love Vs Madison Rayne Vs Brooke.

Brooke wins, pinning Madison in a Facebuster. Brooke pulls off an upset, and will now face the Knockout Champion.

The Rising has a message for the fans, thanking them for standing up to wrestling.

Tonight, it will be Micah, but who will he face from the BDC? Find out next.

Tonight, it will be Kurt Angle Vs Austin Aries.

Eric is being interviewed backstage. EY is not happy about being bumped tonight. It means everything to him.

It’s BDC Vs The Rising, one on one.

MVP sees that the crowd is behind The Rising, and Galloway is right, there is something about stand up wrestling.

It will be Micah Vs Kenny King, who attacked Micah.

Micah wins the match with a Samoan Drop, and here come The BDC with the beat down.

Drew and Eli come out to help, but newest BDC member, Homicide comes out too.

A 4-on-3 attack.

Lo-Ki nails Drew with a lead pipe on the gut to put the stamp of this beat down.

Drew is being helped to the back. Drew tells Lo-Ki he is still standing. Next week is Hardcore Justice. They will have a steel pipe on a pole match.

The Dollhouse vignette is playing, and we will see them in action, now.

It’s going to be Jade Vs Laura Dennis.

Laura Dennis wins by DQ, when Marty ran Brian Stiffler into the ring post. And after Christy Hemme announced Laura won, they attacked Christy and sent her into the steel steps.

They are a bit odd here.

We come back, and see Eric Young backstage, down about the situation. Kurt Angle assures Eric he is the Number One Contender. Eric and Kurt both know Eric is the Number One Contender, history seems to be repeating here. Kurt assures Eric that he will get the next title shot, and Eric doesn’t want to hear this, and he leaves.

Magnus is in the ring.

Magnus appreciates the fans support, and his family appreciates it too. But tonight is not about him, it’s about his fiancée, and simply put one of the greatest woman wrestlers, addressing her future.

Here comes Mickie James.

Mickie wants to thank the fans, she wants to thank Magnus. The last few weeks have been a roller coaster, and she wanted to come back to support Magnus, through his feud with Bram. She has been honored to be in the ring with some of the greatest women wrestlers in her generation. And beating some of them, and when you hold the World Title, it means everything and you were born to do this. But holding Donovan, their son means more to her. And as of tonight, she is going home and will be a Mom. She wants to thank us, and appreciate what they mean to her.

Thank you Mickie chants, and here comes James Storm.

James knows this is a family moment here, but he tells us that people who know the real James Storm knows he loves cold beer, hot women, and fast cars.

And when he looks at Mickie, he knows she would rather wear cowboy boots than high heels. She would rather drink wine in a box than some fancy cup. She is a woman who stands by her man, no matter who she has to stand up to.

So when she stands in the gorilla position, she hears her music and knows the fans are about to chant Mickie. He knows this was a hard decision, but she might regret it.

Magnus chimes in, and says he appreciates what he did for them, but this was a hard decision. James stops him right there, and says he always made easy decisions. Because if a decision is difficult, it shouldn’t be made.

She is one of the greatest wrestlers in the business, not just in wrestling, but singing the country songs.

Mickie has made her decision, and she thinks it’s the right decision.

Storm understands she wants to be a great mother, and anyone who has kids understand that. But James wants to tell Mickie a little secret, these people love Mickie James.

James isn’t asking for her to do a full-time schedule, just asking for her to do it one more time.

The crowd wants one more time.

Mickie agrees to it one more time.

James taps Magnus on the shoulder. Magnus doesn’t look amused.

Tonight, Taryn Terrell Vs Awesome Kong, for the Knockout Title. And Kurt Angle Vs Austin Aries, for the World Title.

During the break, Magnus wants to clarify what Mickie is thinking. She got caught up in the moment. One more match wouldn’t hurt. Davey Richards catches up with Magnus.

He is warning him about Storm, calling him the “devil”.

We come back, and it’s Davey Richards Vs Manik.

Davey wins the match, with what he is calling Cheap Death, basically a kick to the head.

Here come Abyss and Khoya to take out Davey, but here come The Hardys.

EC3 and Tyrus are backstage. Ethan has a big announcement to make, and he wants us to discuss it as #EC32015.

What about #EC32015?

Exactly.

EC3 has the fans in the palm of his hand. Ethan is here to declare himself the next TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

2015 is the year, EC3 is the man. They say that a title makes the man, but he disagrees, because he will make the title.

His qualifications, you might ask?

Ever since his debut in October, of 2013, he has been unpinned, and unsubmlitted. That means for the last 21 months, he has been a gold mine.

He has defeated every single TNA Hall of Famer there is. That includes Bully Ray, Sting, and the current TNA World Champion, Kurt Angle.

There is no candidate better suited for him to take this company to the next level for the next 4, oh hell, 8 years.

EC32015, will be a grassroots campaign, and will start here in Florida.

Watch as unemployment will go down 79%, and Unmotivated Children and Lazy millennial will go down 67%.

EC3 loves this speech too.

These United States will be Carter Country. No longer red, no longer blue. Golden, united by one star, one Hardcore American ICON to lead the charge. He will take this title, charge it as one. He will defend it around the world, he will defend it in Mars, Martians, he is coming for them.

He is Ethan Carter III, the next TNA World Champion. God Bless TNA Wrestling. God Bless EC3.

Here comes Mr. Anderson.

Anderson is not wanted, but Mr. Anderson tells him he has one hell of a future.

Mr. Anderson is the first endorsement for EC3 as World Champion.

But Anderson corrects him, his future is in Washington. He can run with Anthony Weiner.

Anderson tells Carter he waited 11 years to win his first World Title. He broke his body, he broke his bones, and that’s how you win championships.

Ethan wants to show Anderson what a World Champion looks like, and the two men fight, with Anderson getting the upper hand.

Taryn Terrell video is playing now.

Kong Vs Terrell, next.

Taryn wants this to be a No DQ match, and she gets that wish.

The Dollhouse aided Taryn, and we saw a Triple Power Bomb through a table.

Taryn tells us people didn’t think she could beat Kong, but she proved us wrong, and anyone who messed with her, has to deal with her new friends.

This is their house….The Dollhouse.

Austin Aries is the measuring stick, and to prove it, he has to beat Kurt Angle one on one. No games, no BS. Time to cash this in, and become the new World Heavyweight Champion.

He runs into Eric Young, Aries tells him he will give EY the first shot when he beats Kurt.

EY walks away.

Josh Matthews reviews what we just saw. The Dollhouse being aligned with Taryn Terrell.

Backstage, Magnus asks some TV people if they can follow Mickie, and off they go.

Our main event, Kurt Angle Vs Austin Aries for the TNA World Title is up now.

The match never happens, when Eric Young attacks Aries and nails a Piledriver on the floor.

Eric hits another Piledriver on the steel steps, and we see Kurt Angle coming over, but Eric attacks Kurt too. He takes the anklebrace off Kurt and nails a chair on the ankle. Figure Four time.

Next Friday, Hardcore Justice returns. The Hardys and Davey Richards Vs The Revolution in a 6-man streetfight. Also, Drew Galloway Vs Lo-Ki in a Steel Pipe on a Pole match.

Hardcore Justice, next week.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Alot has happened since I last watched Impact Wrestling. The Hardys are the new Tag Team Champions, The Dollhouse made their debut, EY showed us his “real” side, and “crazy” side all in the same episode. And Taz is gone from TNA. It’s now Josh Matthews. He needs someone to work with, but he did a decent job. But still needs a color man. Thank you Taz for everything you had done for TNA.

An interesting show here, we saw women being featured on most of the night here. The Dollhouse is with Taryn Terrell, and what will Kong’s response be?

I even like the fact Angle Vs Aries did not happen, and he still has his briefcase.

James Storm proved what kind of great performer he is. One moment, he has the crowd at the palm of his hand, then within moments, he becomes a cult leader again. I’d like to see where this is going.

Also, May 8th show, will be live. We should see what Slammiversary will look like.

But my hero of the night belongs to EC3. I would vote for him, and know he would represent TNA well for the next 8 years. Remember #EC32015.

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 4/20/15…Road To Extreme Rules Ends Here

Tonight, The Authority will make their 2-week hiatus back.  HHH gave us an announcement about “Tough Enough” returning to TV.  6 days from Extreme Rules.

Raw is now.

At Extreme Rules, we will see Randy Orton Vs Seth Rollins, inside a steel cage, with Randy’s RKO move banned.

The steel cage is lowered, and we see Randy Orton headed to the ring.

For someone claiming to be smart, Seth Rollins is a dumb bastard. He believes Orton’s greatest weapon is the RKO, but Randy’s best weapon is inflicting pain. He doesn’t need the RKO. It’s too quick, and too easy. But now he has no other choice but to do it nice and slow.

Randy will break Rollins’ jaw, so we won’t have to hear him run his mouth week in, and week out. He will also take His rib, and break it. But we will take his stupid blonde streak in Seth’s hair and ram it into the steel cage. And when he is pinned, Rollins reign will end as WWE Champion.

Here comes the WWE World Champion.

Seth plays the game of human chess better than anybody. And this Sunday, he will prove that by defeating Orton and continuing his run as the greatest WWE World Champion.

He has this title to prove how good he is. Orton may be one of the greatest WWE Superstars in the history, but he is that much better.

Cage or no cage, Rollins will beat Orton this Sunday.

Orton brings up since he banned the RKO this Sunday, he will go in the back, and RKO every son of a bitch he sees. And then by the end of tonight, he will RKO Rollins.

HHH will return tonight, and make a big announcement on Tough Enough.

Dean Ambrose Vs Luke Harper, one on one is next.

Luke Harper is on the mic, he tells Dean he doesn’t know why he isn’t afraid of him, but at the end of the night, Dean will be.

The match ends in a no contest when the guys beat the crap out of each other.

The segment ends with Luke throwing Ambrose off the top of the ramp.

Seth Rollins with J & J Security are looking over their shoulders, for Orton. Tyrus O’ Neil scares him. Rollins wants to show everyone he isn’t scared of anyone, and dares to beat up the next guy he sees.

That guy is….HHH.

HHH assures Rollins he will talk to Kane when he comes in. Rollins assures HHH he has Orton under control, but he needs more security.

But Randy is one guy.

Lucha Dragons are in action, next.

Lucha Dragons Vs New Day.

Winners get Tag Team Title match this Sunday.

The New Day wins the match with a countout. Xavier Woods held Sin Cara’s foot underneath the ring.

As they celebrate, Randy Orton RKO’s Kofi and Xavier. Big E. thought it best to walk away, and he does.

New Day Vs Cesaro and Kidd at Extreme Rules.

At Extreme Rules, John Cena Vs Rusev in a Russian Chain Match. Also, Cena will have an open challenge tonight. We see footage from last week when Rusev attacked Cena with a chain.

Next, we see footage from last week when Big Show took Reigns for a ride.

We see footage from last week, including Big Show’s explanation from this past Thursday night on Smackdown.

This Sunday, Big Show Vs Reigns in a Last Man Standing Match.

It’s Fandango Vs Curtis Axel.

Last Dance, match is done.

Tonight, The Miz Vs Damien Mizdow, winner gets “The Miz” brand.

HHH is tweeting, he joins us live, next.

HHH comes out to make the official announcement that Tough Enough is coming back, and the ideal behind the show is we can audition. Anyone can try out, and he asks us what it would be like to hear your own music, to get onto this stage. To headline Wrestlemania, and to wrestle for the WWE World Heavyweight Title. That is our dream, and WWE is giving us that opportunity. Tell them, show them, go to WWEToughEnough.com, and maybe we can be one of the 10 men, or 5 women chosen to compete on the show. The winner gets a WWE contract. Do we have what it takes? If we do, show the world that we are truly tough enough.

Here comes Kane.

Kane tells HHH that he has been trying to return his phone calls, send him text messages, send him emails all week-long. HHH told him he wanted Kane to cool off.

Kane is here to give HHH his two weeks notice, because HHH trusts that WWE World Champion, someone who doesn’t appreciate the ones who have helped him get the title.

Seth Rollins shows up, calls Kane a loser and wants HHH to drop this guy. The Authority doesn’t need him.

Kane screams at him, and says The Authority could have chosen anyone to be WWE World Champ, even El Torito.

HHH gets in between of both of them, and calls for Kane to be the Gatekeeper of the Cage match. Nobody goes through Kane this Sunday.

Rollins shakes hands with Kane, and walks away.

Okay, Kane is the Gatekeeper, I guess.

Cole, JBL, and Booker T show us what happened last week, when Naomi took out Paige after being eliminated in the Diva’s Battle Royal.

Paige is out indefinitely, and it will be Naomi Vs Nikki Bella, this Sunday.

Naomi Vs Brie is next.

Backstage, Rollins and Kane are still arguing. HHH tells Kane he has to be corporate, and no longer be the hell, fire, and brimstone. Kane disagrees, and proves it tonight.

Naomi Vs Brie is now.

Naomi wins with a Rear View.

Though the title match is not confirmed, Nikki Bella confirms she will not deny the match if it’s given to her.

Heath Slater is in catering with Erick Rowan. Heath talks about accepting the John Cena United States Challenge, and will be the new United States Champion, BA-BAY!!

Rowan just walks away, and Heath is met with a RKO.

That’s 3 for Randy.

We hear from Roman Reigns, next.

Roman Reigns comes out to the ring. He doesn’t want to talk, he wants to fight. He wants Big Show to come out.

Here comes Bo Dallas.

He noticed anger in Roman’s voice. Like Yoda said in Episode I….”Anger leads to hate, and hate leads to suffering”

We know Roman suffered when he went through a car hood last week. He also suffered after losing at Wrestlemania. Roman is a bit of a bust, he is a “Tim Tebow” of WWE. He fails and fails every time. He knows Reigns will be WWE World Champion someday. He just has to

BOLIEVE!!

Superman Punch, and then a spear.

Big Show is too scared to face Reigns man to man, but this Sunday, Reigns will tear him up, and be the last man standing.

You can BOlieve that.

Ziggler Vs Rollins, tonight.

Sheamus is now facing Zack Ryder.

Woo Woo Woo…You Know It.

Bell rings, Brogue Kick. He can pin him, but where is the fun in that? Ryder deserves more time than that.

Sheamus is on the mic the entire time. He says Ryder is just like us, none of us could last 2 seconds in the ring with him.

Sheamus throws Zack out of the ring like a rag doll. And he gives him another Brogue Kick for good measure.

Ziggler comes out and gives Sheamus a Zig Zag.

Sheamus wins by DQ, I guess.

Ziggler Vs Sheamus in a Kiss Me Arse match this Sunday, at Extreme Rules.

Up next, John Cena US Title Open Challenge.

Cena wants to talk first.

This Sunday, live on WWE Network, we go Extreme.

This Sunday, we go for revenge. We saw earlier that Rusev means business, and why shouldn’t he? Cena handed him Rusev’s first loss at Wrestlemania.

And he, just like us cringe whenever Cena says The Champ Is Here.

But this Sunday, Rusev wants to do what is best, which is destroy. The winner of a Russian Chain match is to touch all four corners successfully. And that means Rusev wants to take the fighting spirit away from Cena.

Rusev’s plan is to dominate, and win back his United States Title. But that just won’t happen. Rusev wants to prove that Wrestlemania was a fluke, but it wasn’t, it was a statement. And this is an opportunity of Rusev getting a steel plate up his ass.

But we will still get a fight tonight.

Albany is the place to be, John Cena is the man to beat. The John Cena United States Title open challenge starts now.

You want some, come get some.

Kane answers the call.

Cena wins with the AA, with Seth Rollins laughing about the loss backstage.

Tonight, Ziggler Vs Rollins.

Kane comes backstage after his loss, and HHH gives him “the look”, you know that look, like when your parents are disappointed in you?

The Miz is with Renee Young.

Miz’s brand is on the line tonight. He gets to face that imposter, and Miz shows off his “The Marine 4″ Blu-Ray, out tomorrow.

But Renee interrupts this interview, with another interview. Byron Saxton is standing by with The United States Champion, John Cena.

John talks about opportunities and tonight’s win was huge. But Rusev attacks him with a chain.

Rusev Vs Cena in a Russian Chain match this Sunday, at Extreme Rules.

The Miz Vs Damien Mizdow is up now.

The Miz wins, with some help from Summer Rae, who turns heel again.

The Miz tells us he is AWESOME…..

RKO by Orton, giving us 4 tonight.

Extreme Rules rundown.

Luke Harper Vs Dean Ambrose is added, with a Chicago Streetfight. Also New Day Vs Cesaro and Kidd is now for the Tag Team Titles, and it’s in the Kick-Off show.

So New Day was fighting for a shot at Tag Titles, and they aren’t even on the PPV.

How is that a new day?

Ziggler Vs Rollins is tonight.

Bray Wyatt interrupts us to ask if you want success, do you want money? Fame? Because you can lift as much weight as you want, but the one factor that will hurt you is Bray Wyatt. He will show that you have been nothing but a failure, and when you look up, you’ll see Bray Wyatt standing on top of you.

Behold the new face of fear.

Ryback Vs Adam Rose, now.

Shellshock, game is over.

The hot dog and banana try to attack Ryback, but it doesn’t work.

Ryback asks us what the banana said to the hot dog? Nothing, because they both had been shellshocked.

Renee Young is standing by with Kane. I guess Rollins was tweeting a joke about Kane’s loss. He tweeted that Kane needs dental floss and depends.

Kane confronts Rollins in the back. They go face to face, and Rollins apologizes. He admitted he has been under pressure with Orton. He knows Kane has done alot for Rollins, and to stay on top. He will dedicate his match with Ziggler to Kane.

Rollins walks out with J & J Security, with Randy Orton watching in the distance.

Rollins wins the match with an Implanted DDT, after Sheamus comes out to distract Ziggler for a moment.

After the match, Rollins wants to say his thank yous, and show the world why he is the best in the business this Sunday.

Here comes HHH, and he’s marching to the ring.

HHH wanted to tell us Rollins is going to defeat Randy Orton, and remain the WWE World Champion, but Rollins interrupts HHH and degrades Kane. But now here comes Kane, the cage goes down. Orton is somehow there….RKO!!!

We don’t stop there, no we must plug Hulk Hogan Rock and Wrestling on WWE Network.

NOW the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

What a boring show tonight, the highlights were the RKO’s. Not sure why Kane and Rollins are bitching too. But eh, who cares.

Anyway, Extreme Rules is this Sunday, and I can’t wait to see New Day Vs Cesaro and Kidd.

Can’t you tell?

WWE Monday Night Raw 4/13/15…Live From England….On Tape

Tonight, WWE is in London, England.  I did not read the spoilers, so I am reacting to what I am watching.  I do know we will have a Diva Battle Royal, to determine who the Number One Contender is to the Diva’s Title.

Raw is now.

Michael Cole is back, as he is with JBL and Jerry “The King” Lawler.

John Cena kicks off the program.

The London crowd does not like Cena.

Cena butters up the fans to say London should host Wrestlemania. Cena is here for the United States Open Challenge, and who answers it?

Bad News Barrett.

Barrett is ready, and our match is next.

Cena won another good match here with Attitude Adjustment.

We see Lana return, and she distracted Cena so Rusev attacked Cena with a chain. Lana informs Cena that their match at Extreme Rules is a Russian Chain Match.

We haven’t seen a Russian Chain match since 1991, when Sting faced Nikita Koloff, at Great American Bash.

Last week, we had the triple threat match with Orton Vs Reigns Vs Ryback, and we see footage of that.

Big Show knocked out Roman Reigns.

Tonight, both Orton and Rollins have single matches. Orton will face Cesaro, and Rollins will face Ziggler.

The Bella Twins come out to the ring to join commentary for the Divas Battle Royal, next.

Paige wins the Battle Royal.

I am surprised Naomi didn’t go over here, with the pinfall victories she has had lately.

Paige Vs Nikki Bella at Extreme Rules.

We are in London, England tonight.

Paige is in the ring, with Byron Saxton.

Paige won the Divas Title on her first night in WWE. Just 2 weeks ago, she won her first Wrestlemania with AJ Lee.

But nothing compares to be competing in front of her own home country. A place where she started wrestling in gyms, making a pound, and this is in her own home country, in front of her father and her family, and friends. This is her house.

Naomi attacks Paige, and turns heel.

An official comes in and checks on Paige. Naomi believed she was next in line for a Divas Title shot, and Paige went past her.

Now we hear from Bray Wyatt.

It becomes an obsession. It becomes a sin. Love can be blinded, it can cloud your judgment, and it can stop you. But you’re in luck friend, because Bray has decided to reach deep inside of him. Because fear can be enriched inside your soul. And soon, he will see what it can do to you. So pay attention my friend, because behold the new face of fear.

Our next match is Lucha Dragons Vs The Ascension.

Lucha Dragons win in a 3 minute match.

Moving on….

Booker T is in the ring with Roman Reigns.

It’s been two weeks of an opportunity of a lifetime, Booker says. But we know that opportunity was ripped away from him. What is Roman’s mental mind is.

Roman went to Suplex City, and he woke up the next day. He felt it, and it didn’t feel good, but he woke up the next day. They told them that they were going to give us brutal fights. He told The Beast he was going to hit him in the mouth, Brock felt that punch. He could have beaten him, but Seth capitalized on the moment. Roman has beaten Seth Rollins, so he be the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Big Show took that opportunity last week. He wishes he can say he is the biggest giant, he is a multi-World Champion, but lately he has become Seth Rollins’ little bitch.

Big Show shows up on the screen. He told Roman that he lost at Mania, while Show won Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. But Reigns is a loser, and he will do whatever he can to make Roman the biggest loser in WWE history. Everytime he gets up, Big Show will knock him back down.

Reigns dares Show to come out and face Reigns, man to man. Not a guy who is at the jumbo screen. Either he is too lazy, or he doesn’t have enough balls.

But if he continues to be a thorn, he will take that trophy and shove it down his throat, and he can believe that.

Big Show attacks Reigns after Reigns said he could retire him. He rams him into the taxi car they have on set two times.

Show takes Reigns and gives him a Chokeslam on the car.

We see footage of the wreckage of the car after Big Show put Reigns through it.

Match time, Randy Orton Vs Cesaro is now.

Well, this is a bit of a disappointment, the match ends in a DQ, when Tyson Kidd interfered.

But Kane doesn’t like this either. There needs to be a winner, so he will make this a 2-on-1 Handicap match, now.

Orton wins with a RKo out of nowhere, pinning Kidd.

Orton now has an opportunity to choose the stipulation on his match against Rollins, at Extreme Rules.

RKO was fantastic.

Kane has let down The Authority again, but Rollins has a chance to redeem himself when he beats Dolph Ziggler.

Rollins has a better idea, he will not face Ziggler. He will face Jamie Noble.

Jamie doesn’t want to face him, he puts blame on Kane again. Kane asks Rollins if he is afraid of Ziggler? No, Rollins NEEDS to win tonight. He needs to face someone who knows how to get the job done. He needs to face someone who knows what is best for business.

Kane asks Rollins if he is implying Kane can be beat? Rollins tells Kane the number one thing is they have to protect the champion. They can always call HHH, and see what he has to say.

Kane walks away, and Rollins assures J & J Security he knows what he has to do.

Oh boy, it’s Adam Rose. But his opponent is Dean Ambrose.

Dean needs a win, here.

Dirty Deeds, and the party is fowl.

Kane is on the phone, Big Show tells Kane that he did what was best for The Authority. Kane knows what is best for business, and Rollins can’t lose tonight, because he heads into Extreme Rules at a disadvantage. And Randy Orton as WWE World Heavyweight Champion is not what is best for business.

Kane tells us it will be Rollins Vs Kane. And he will do what is best for business.

Stardust Vs Fandango is now.

Stardust wins with Beautiful Disaster kick.

Fandango informs Rosa Mendes he realizes what he needs to do, he is losing because he only has his dance with Rosa, and not the entire WWE Universe.

We hear the old Fandango music, and the crowd loves it.

Kane is confronted by Daniel Bryan.

Kane tells him to please leave the room, and Daniel tells Kane that he is going to lie down for Seth. The Kane he knows would tombstoned Rollins. This gets Kane fired up, and he tells him to leave.

Kane Vs Rollins is next.

Kane refused to lay down at first, even going after J & J Security. But Seth tells him this is his WWE. And he runs things here. So Kane lays down, but then gives Rollins a chokeslam. He sets him up for the Tombstone, but realizes his job is on the line, so he rolls Rollins over and Seth wins.

Both Orton and Rollins get to choose a stipulation.

Damien Mizdow is coming out next, it will be The Miz Vs Damien Mizdow, now.

Mizdow wins with a rollup of the tights. Mizdow wins the match, and gets Summer Rae.

Primetime Players are now making fun of Los Matadores.

Tonight, our main event is what is dubbed as “Extreme Decision” between Randy Orton and Seth Rollins.

It’s Ryback Vs Luke Harper, now.

Ryback wins by DQ in a quick, sudden match. But here comes Dean Ambrose wanting to get himself some, but Harper just moves away. And he throws a chair near ringside.

Earlier tonight, Paige won the Divas Battle Royal, but Naomi snapped after the match.

Byron Saxton is standing by with Naomi. She has no remorse over what she did. This is about Naomi.

Who is the Diva’s Champion? Nikki Bella. The diva that she beat twice. So why did they must have the battle royal? She was in the same NXT season as AJ Lee, and they call her a legend now that she is gone. Naomi is tired of being nice, she is taking what is hers.

That was a good promo there, and effective.

Dolph Ziggler is in action, next.

Ziggler comes back, and we find out he is not happy to not have his shot at Rollins tonight. Kane thought he did what was best for business? Kane proved to be the Devil’s favorite dumbass.

Ziggler is the best in this business, so he will issue an open challenge.

Who will face Ziggler?

Neville.

The WWE veteran finds a way to win with a Zig Zag.

A great match here, and Sheamus attacks both men.

Ziggler fights back, which is good to see, but Sheamus rams Ziggler’s head into the steel post and hits another Brogue Kick.

So are we going to see Ziggler get into the IC Title situation? Not sure why Sheamus attacks Ziggler twice here.

Earlier tonight, we see Big Show attack Reigns.

Big Show will be on Thursday Night Smackdown, but next we get our “Extreme Decision”.

Next week, HHH will have a major announcement about “Tough Enough”.

Seth Rollins and Randy Orton make their way out to the ring, now.

Rollins is with J & J Security, and they have La-Z Boy chairs out.

Rollins tell us we can boo him if we all want, but he is the future of WWE. And he is the greatest WWE World Heavyweight Champion of all time. You don’t believe him? He defeated both Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at the same night at Wrestlemania.

He also defeated Kane earlier tonight. Kane was supposed to be here, but Kane relieved his duties for the night, and put Rollins in charge.

He has a great stipulation for Orton, so he calls him out to the ring.

Orton tells Rollins he too gets to choose a stipulation. So how about they make things more simple, and take the chairs out of the equation, and both men fight. The man standing will then choose the stipulation.

Rollins loves to complicate things, he takes advantage of those opportunities. This is all power, Rollins won Money in the Bank making things complicated. Orton’s power is the RKO, and that move is banned for their title match at Extreme Rules.

Good move, and Randy wants to take Seth’s power away too. Seth’s power isn’t his mind, it’s The Authority. So how about they have their match inside a steel cage.

You think that scares Seth? He is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and without the RKO, Orton has nothing.

Orton tells Rollins since the RKO is banned from Extreme Rules, they might as well give the fans what their money’s worth.

Orton goes after Rollins, and he hits a RKO on both Jamie and Mercury, but Rollins slips out of the ring.

The show ends with Orton celebrating.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This show had its ups and downs. Considering everything, it wasn’t a bad show for England. We had some good matches, but the moments too were questionable.

I have no clue why Sheamus goes after Ziggler, when he has his match at Extreme Rules set with Daniel Bryan. Does this mean Ziggler will be added?

Will Naomi be added to Divas Title match too? Since Paige needs to get her revenge on Naomi?

Will we ever see “The Big Red Machine” back?

And why did we get a 2 minute match with Miz and Mizdow, when they had set their feud up for months?

But boy, Ziggler Vs Neville was good, as was Cena Vs Barrett. I like these United States Title challenge, and maybe it will make US Title more important? IC Title needs to be held with high regard too. Are they doing that? Maybe I should watch Smackdown again, and find out?

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 4/6/15…Figuring Out Who Number One Contender Is

We are live at The University of Texas.  Byron Saxton, JBL, and Booker T welcome us to the show.

HHH and Stephanie McMahon are on “vacation”, so all hell can break loose.

We start the show off with Seth Rollins and The Authority in the ring.

How original.

Seth tries to speak, but the fans won’t let him, they keep booing.

He wants to send a shout-out to HHH and Stephanie. They are on vacation, and after Wrestlemania, they have earned it.

The crowd gives him a you sold out chant, and Seth reminds the fans he is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Also, they want to talk about the biggest takeaway, it’s not the attendance record. No, it’s not that they broke PPV records, no. It’s not even that they trended about 243 million times throughout the night. The biggest takeaway is The Authority always win.

Let’s talk about The Authority making Wrestlemania moments all night. It starts with HHH taking care of that “Face paint freak” Sting, and putting the nail in the coffin on WCW once and for all.

Big Show won Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

And Kane….well Kane……Kane was there.

Big Show tells us he is the best giant in wrestling history, but Seth Rollins won the WWE World Title.

Seth Rollins is the future, and the future is now. And he is the greatest WWE World Champion, of all-time.

Big Show thanks Seth for giving The Authority a moment they will never forget at Wrestlemania.

Seth brings up Kane, but again, what did he do?

Kane starts to talk, but here comes Randy Orton.

Randy tells Seth he made his Wrestlemania moment, but so did Orton with his best RKO ever. And he beat Rollins at Mania.

Rollins calls Orton a complainer, but Orton is telling it like it is. He beat Rollins, but he deserves a WWE World Title, and that is best for business.

So how about that Mr. Director of Operations, or does he have to call Mommy and Daddy to approve it.

Kane informs Orton he is still the Director of Operations, and he deserves respect.

There are many other wrestlers that deserve title shots. So what he will do is give us a Triple Threat match tonight to determine the new Number One Contender to the WWE World Title.

Roman Reigns Vs Ryback Vs Randy Orton.

But first, all three men will face other opponents. Orton will wrestle now, against Kane.

Kane is DQ’d when he uses a chair on Orton.

Orton tries a RKO on a chair, but Kane escapes and leaves.

Tonight, Roman Reigns Vs Big Show.

The announcers bring up AJ Lee has retired.

Brad Maddox has returned, Kane is upset. Rollins questions Kane. Kane brings up helping him win Money in the Bank ladder match. Rollins needs to defend his title, like a true champion.

Rollins brings up maybe it’s best for business Kane should just step down as Director of Operations.

Rollins brings up HHH and Stephanie wouldn’t like this. Kane reminds Rollins he is in charge tonight, and this is what’s best for business.

Kane is putting Seth Rollins in a match, next.

The announcers bring up Brock Lesnar taking out Michael Cole. JBL and Booker are here, even after JBL had surgery.

We see footage from last week.

Rollins is in action, next.

Rollins Vs Neville.

Oh my god, this match is going to be awesome.

But first, Rollins wants to introduce us to Neville. But Neville doesn’t speak. Rollins understands though. He too was a rookie, so he is nervous. How about you just sit this one out.

Neville decks him, and the match is on.

Rollins defeated Neville with a Curb Stomp.

After the match, Rollins gives him another Curb Stomp for good measure.

Tonight, Triple Threat match with Orton Vs Reigns Vs Ryback, with winner being Number One Contender at Extreme Rules.

John Cena’s United States Title Open Challenge is next.

Cena is giving us his usual, he is defending this US Title with honor. He tells us that Austin has declared today WWE Day.

But today was MLB Opening Day, and that stands more merit.

But anyway, The Champ Is Here.

Cena is giving someone a chance to go one on one with the face who runs this place.

This title is about opportunity, so why not have a US Title match tonight?

But to anyone who does walk out and face Cena, if they think it will be easy, they are dreaming. So if you come to the ring, you better step up, or else you will be stepped on.

And if you want some, come get some.

It’s Stardust.

Cena wins in another good match, pinning Stardust with an Attitude Adjustment.

Triple Threat match is set tonight with Reigns Vs Ryback Vs Orton.

Tonight, Reigns faces Big Show.

Also tonight, Ryback faces Luke Harper.

The Bella Twins are next.

They are facing Paige and Naomi.

Naomi and Paige win when Brie rams into Nikki, and Paige takes care of Brie when Naomi pins Nikki.

Primetime Players now give us an imitation of The Ascension.

Basically they agree with us all, they suck.

Tonight, Damien Mizdow Vs The Miz but next, Ryback Vs Luke Harper.

Ryback wins in relatively easy fashion here with Shellshock.

Later tonight, Ryback has an opportunity if he wins the Triple Threat, he faces Rollins at Extreme Rules.

Renee Young is with New Day.

They are disappointed in the fans reaction. Either they clap, or they snap.

It’s The New Day Vs The Lucha Dragons.

Lucha Dragons defeated New Day. Sin Cara pins Kofi with a Swanton.

Tyson Kidd and Cesaro are watching backstage.

Reigns Vs Big Show is next.

Reigns wins the match with a spear.

Kane is on the phone, the divas approach Kane and offer a Divas Battle Royal to determine the Number One Contender to the Divas Title.

Kane agrees, but wants everyone out of the room.

Sheamus speaks, next.

Renee Young approaches Reigns.

He has momentum for tonight’s Triple Threat match. He agrees Big Show couldn’t stop him, wait until we see what he does next.

Here comes Sheamus.

Sheamus wants us to see what a real man looks like.

There aren’t too many real men in WWE. He has always been a wariior filled with insects.

Our heroes don’t belong here, because all they do is give false hope.

He is talking about Dolph Ziggler.

He is an insect that needs weeded out.

We see a Celtic Warrior, standing at 6’6, 285 pounds.

Oh, but here comes someone bigger, Mark Henry.

Sheamus gives us a Brogue Kick for the win.

They show us The Rock and Ronda Rousey Vs HHH and Stephanie McMahon segment at Wrestlemania, again.

I have to tell you, if they DON’T have a plan to give us more with these four, then why continue to show it?

Triple Threat match with Reigns Vs Orton Vs Ryback tonight.

For the second week in a row, they tell us that Smackdown’s main event is Ziggler and Bryan Vs Barrett and Sheamus.

Now we hear from Bray Wyatt.

You know who you are.

Bray is talking to him. He is all about dedication, yet he can’t compete against the one thing, fear of failure. He knows the depth of his skin the fear of failure is the one thing he can’t fathom.

Does he have his attention now? He is the new face of fear.

Renee Young is with Ryback.

Big things are ahead of Ryback, and if he wins this match tonight, he will move on to big things against Seth Rollins, at Extreme Rules. Randy Orton and Roman Reigns, tonight you will find out how hungry Ryback is.

Feed me more.

The Miz Vs Damien Mizdow is now.

The Miz wins with a roll of the tights, stealing the victory.

Renee Young is standing by with “The Viper” Randy Orton.

Orton has the momentum since he defeated Rollins at Wrestlemania. Randy brings up having nothing against Ryback or Reigns, but he will do what he does best, and win the match. Then face Rollins, and take the WWE World Title from him.

Triple Threat match is next.

Orton wins with a RKO, pinning Ryback after The Authority takes out Roman Reigns out of the picture. Ryback takes out J & J Security, but Orton takes the opportunity.

The night ends however with a Curb Stomp by Rollins.

Seth Rollins Vs Randy Orton headlines Extreme Rules.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Raw was okay, nothing horrible, but not a slam dunk either, on the very same night of the NCAA Basketball Championship.

I did enjoy Rollins Vs Neville, and Rollins was fantastic tonight, carrying the show.

But wow, was the announcing bad. JBL and Booker T carried the show, but Byron Saxton showed no emotion, it seemed like he was just repeating everything Cole was telling him on headset, and Byron just said it. That has to change.

But this was Raw. No Daniel Bryan, for some reason, and no Dolph Ziggler either. Raw was just there.

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

Impact Wrestling 4/3/15….Bell To Bell

Tonight, Impact will give us 3 big matches to end feuds.  We will see Eric Young face Bobby Roode.  We will also see Bram Vs Magnus.  And for the TNA Heavyweight Title, it will be Angle Vs Lashley II.

Impact Wrestling is on now.

Josh Matthews and Taz welcome us to the show. We will also see a Knockout match, with Gail Kim Vs Angelina Love.

But we kick things off with Eric Young Vs Bobby Roode, in a Submissions Match.

All good things must come to an end as EY said. And tonight, he puts the final coffin in Roode’s career. No bells, no whistles, tonight, he becomes a winner and stops Roode’s pathetic career.

Roode has the mic now, coming out.

Roode brings up what EY said, history is written by winners. Allow Roode to give EY a history lesson. Young cost Roode his World Title. But he has beaten EY in steel cage matches, and Last Man Standing. EY said that he will make sure Roode never gets another title shot again, well Roode is here to say he won’t let EY breathe.

Young challenges Roode to a Submission Match, so he can me Roode tap.

Roode accepts and says he will make Young Roode’s bitch.

Match is set now.

Eric Young wins the match with a Figure Four, but Roode had made EY tap out seconds before, with a Crossface. But the ref had his back turned.

Our main event is Angle Vs Lashley, and we see champion and challenger enter the building earlier tonight.

Let the hunting begin.

The Wolves come out, with Eddie Edwards on crutches.

JB is with The Wolves, asking about an update from Eddie.

He injured himself at a One Night Only PPV taping. They try to take chances, but this time it caught up to them. He landed hard, and knew something had popped.

After checked out in the hospital, Eddie fractured his heel, it more or less broke in half. And unfortunately, Eddie will be out for a long time and The Wolves cannot defend their championships.

JB wants to know if there are any plans to have a new Tag Team partner with Davey.

The two are family. Through the training, through living in the horrible dojos, they hunt as a pack.

So without Eddie Edwards, there is no Wolves. Without The Wolf Nation, there is no Wolves. And without Davey Richards, there is no Wolves.

Davey tells us The Wolves aren’t going to be teaming for a while, and he puts the titles on the turnbuckle.

However, when his brother comes back, they will hunt whoever the Tag Team Champs are, and no matter what happens, they may get beat down, but with The Wolf Nation behind them, this hunt never dies.

Tonight, Angle Vs Lashley for the World Title. Bell to bell.

Christy Hemme is with Lashley. His motivation is to get back up, and fight for the title. He faces Kurt for the first time 2 weeks ago, and he beat him. But he fight for the chance to get another title opportunity, and Kurt, Lashley will get his title back.

Knockout match is up next, Gail Kim Vs Angelina Love.

After Angelina tells Gail she is better than Gail since she is a 6-time Knockout Champion. We heard Josh and Taz debate this topic about champions, Gail wins with Eat Defeat.

Cross promotional time, with the crew from “Ghost Asylum” checks in with James Storm and his Revolution.

We will find out if Storm’s barn is haunted.

Okay, Magnus Vs Bram video is playing.

Bram Vs Magnus in a Last Man Standing match, now.

Magnus picks up the win and during the match, Mickie James shows up to cheer Magnus on. Bram was about to strike Mickie James, but James Storm comes out and tells him he doesn’t hit a woman.

But through it all, Magnus wins the match with 3 Powerbombs, and a Rock Bottom.

Kurt Angle is with JB, he talks about the first match he had with Lashley was a dream match. He trained for the match harder than he had trained for anything, including the Olympics. But this time, he is defending his World Title, something he hasn’t had in 3 years. So this will be a war.

More “Ghost Asylum” promo.

Moments ago, James Storm defends Mickie James, and Magnus beat Bram.

During the break, Magnus checked to see if Mickie was okay, he saw James Storm and asked what that was about. James tells Magnus he knew he was busy with Bram, and he was looking out for an old friend. Good to see you again, Mickie.

Angle Vs Lashley II, we see footage from their previous match.

We get the big title entrance again, with challenger and champion walking into the guerilla position. I love that.

Kurt retains his title with a rollup pinfall, but it seemed Lashley had his shoulder up, but referee Brian Hebner had his back to it, and counted to three.

After the match, Lashley shook hands with Angle, but very frustrated and we end the show with Kurt celebrating.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

It seems like TNA is switching gears here with their big feuds, which is a good thing. I just didn’t like we didn’t have a clear winner here in the main event. Does that mean we will get an Angle-Lashley III? We can hope, because these two had another good match.

We also had 3 big matches, and a new situation with Storm and Magnus. Will this lead to a feud?

Also this seems like an ending to Young Vs Roode feud. They had another good match that set the tone tonight.

It’s a shame The Wolves were hurt again here, they are 3-time Tag Team Champions, but 2 of their 3 reigns were cut short, due to injuries.

Where do the Tag Titles go from here?

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

WWE Monday Night Raw 3/30/15….The Night After

After an epic Wrestlemania, where we have a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and his name is Seth Rollins.  We are live in San Jose, California, where we can expect a big show.  What’s in store?

Raw is now.

Here Comes The Pain!!

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman. And I am the Advocate of the most non-PG ass kicker of the PG Era, Brock Lesnar.

So let’s talk about what happened last night.

His client did what he was supposed to do, and take the beast Samoan and annihilated him. His client, Brock Lesnar gave the Number One Contender to the World Title suplex after suplex, after suplex, after suplex. Or, as his client would say Suplex City, bitch.

But Roman Reigns would take all of these suplexes, and smiled, wanting more. Reigns can sink or swim, but his client almost respects him.

So then, Lesnar was ready to go out to dinner, and he gave Roman a F-5, but then a slimy, opportunist Seth Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase, and the World Title match turned into a Triple Threat match.

So then Seth hits a Curb Stomp on everyone in sight, pins the challenger, not the champion and became one of the least deserving WWE World Champions.

Now, Heyman’s father was an attorney, he can get a juncture, and make the World Title disappear, and hand back the title to Brock, the rightful owner.

But his client hates lawyers, so let’s just say his client wants to revoke his title shot….TONIGHT!!!

But here comes Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie tells us we all want to move on from what was a great Wrestlemania.

We get a Ronda Rousey chant.

Stephanie informs us that Seth Rollins is the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and he made an appearance on “The Today Show” and did a fine job of it. The very same show Brock was scheduled to be a part of, but he lost last night. Seth has not made it back yet from that trip to New York, but she is sure that when he does return, he will be a fighting champion and Brock can have his match.

Heyman gives us a spoiler then. After the match tonight, we will have an announcement, and it won’t be from Lilian Garcia, it will be from Heyman himself. Your winner….AND NEW WWE World Heavyweight Champion, BRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOCKKKKKKKKKKKK LESNAR!!!

Also tonight, John Cena is putting his United States Title up in an open challenge, and next…. IC Title match, Daniel Bryan Vs Dolph Ziggler.

WWE Raw is starting off on fire tonight.

Daniel Bryan wins the match with a kick, Bad News Barrett who was doing commentary attacked Daniel after the match.

But here comes Sheamus to make his return, sporting a mohawk.

Barrett retrieves, and Sheamus then gives Daniel a Brogue Kick.

He now goes after Ziggler, slapping him around but Dolph fights back. Sheamus gives him White Noise for good measure.

The fans give Sheamus a “You look stupid” chant, and Sheamus loves it.

And all Sheamus can say he is back.

Tonight, it is going to happen, Seth Rollins Vs Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Title.

Sting speaks immediately after Raw on WWE Network.

And next, we look back at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremonies.

A look back at the WWE Hall of Fame.

8-man tag action now of Cesaro, Kidd, and The Ascension taking on The New Day and The Lucha Dragons.

Dragons and New Day win when Calista hit Salina Death Sault, pinning Viktor.

Seth Rollins is here, and we see Lesnar backstage. Heyman tells him he’s here, so let’s go.

Adrian Neville is debuting in WWE, a great video is being shown of him.

Lesnar Vs Rollins, for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is now.

Or is it?

Rollins just spoke with Stephanie McMahon before he got here, and he is feeling a bit jet lagged. And his foot is hurting him from Curb Stomping 2 different men. He is a fighting champion, he just isn’t fighting tonight.

Brock has other ideas.

Anything Rollins had, Brock didn’t feel it. He fought Rollins, and Seth ran away. Lesnar took out J & J Security, flipped the announce table over. Michael Cole went to calm down Brock, Lesnar took him in the ring, and F-5’d Cole.

My Gawd!!

He has a cameraman, and here comes Stephanie McMahon.

She tells Brock he will get his title match, just calm down. But Brock won’t listen, and hits a F-5.

Stephanie suspends Lesnar indefinitely.

Orders Brock to get out of her ring, now.

Brock hits another F-5 on the cameraman, and leaves.

Lesnar just nailed Cole?

We come back and see all of the announcers being tended to by EMTs, and we see what just happened.

Stephanie walks to the back, Renee Young wants a word from her. Stephanie confirmed she suspended Lesnar. Will his suspension affect the Title match?

Stephanie is going to have to fine Brock Lesnar, and if he thinks he can go back to MMA, he signed a contract with WWE. And you know what that means? Stephanie owns that son of a bitch.

Tonight, John Cena has an open challenge for the United States Championship.

Byron Saxton takes over, as we see Stardust go one on one against Damien Mizdow.

Mizdow wins the match with Skull Crushing Finale, and The Miz attacks Mizdow from behind, telling him he is nothing. Miz made him.

After Raw tonight, exclusively on WWE Network, we will hear from Sting.

Next, footage from last night’s Wrestlemania with The Rock and Ronda Rousey.

We see still footage of an angle involving The Rock and Ronda Rousey Vs HHH and Stephanie McMahon.

But now we see footage of WWE week all over.

AxelMania is still running wild.

Adrian Neville is here.

He is going by Neville now, and he did not disappoint. The Red Arrow, 450 splash. Match is done.

Next, we get John Cena’s open challenge.

Byron Saxton is by himself, because Brock Lesnar took out Michael Cole and the entire broadcast team tonight, when Seth Rollins ran away from Lesnar.

The United States Champion John Cena comes out.

Cole has a vertical Fracture it seems.

The fans are not impressed with Cena, it seems.

The fans are greeting him with John Cena Sucks chants to his tune. But The Champ Is Here!!

Cena is out here to fight. He wanted this United States Championship so badly, the fans deserved a title match tonight. He issued a challenge to anyone from Rusev to Brooklyn Brawler.

Saxton belts out here comes Rusev, but it’s Dean Ambrose instead.

Cena wins a great match with an Attitude Adjustment.

Ni shame in losing to John Cena in this kind of match here.Jerry “The King” Lawler joins Byron in commentary, which was needed.

After the match, Ambrose is upset he lost, but they two men showed respect. Maybe down the road, we will see another match between these two?

Renee Young is standing by the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins.

What is Seth’s thoughts on Lesnar being suspended?

Lesnar deserves that punishment, he went after employees, and hopes he gets a 7 figure fine. But for last night, he earned the opportunity to cash in on the title, and he did it when both Rollins and Lesnar least expected. But let’s focus on the current, Rollins is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and he will hold it for a long time.

Randy Orton shows up, reminding Rollins he beat him at Wrestlemania last night. And he beat him with an inch of his life. Since one of his problems left, how about giving Orton a title shot?

Big Show and Kane show up, so Rollins issues a challenge tonight. Rollins has a problem, but Randy has 3. So how about finding 2 friends and facing the 3 of them tonight?

6-Diva tag match is next.

AJ, Paige, and Naomi facing The Bella Twins and Natalya.

Nikki is pinned again when she runs into her sister, and Naomi hits a Rear View.

New Number One Contender to Divas Title?

Earlier tonight, it was set for Lesnar Vs Rollins, but the match never took place. And Brock snapped.

Orton is backstage, Ryback shows up and says he has Orton’s back tonight.

This Thursday night on Smackdown, we will see Ziggler and Bryan Vs Barrett and Sheamus. We will also see a Star-Studded Smackdown with Cena, Orton, and Roman Reigns at the show.

Goldust Vs Rusev, now.

Rusev wins with the Accolade, and sadly, no Lana.

6-Man tag match is up next. Who will team with Orton and Ryback?

It’s Roman Reigns.

Here we go.

Reigns, Orton, and Ryback all win with a RKO, followed by a spear to pin Kane.

After the match, Reigns locks eyes on Rollins, as the show ends.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A fantastic first half of the show, then an okay finish. So overall, it was very good. Highlight of the main event were the chants the crowd gave us, including the wave. A couple of times, Big Show and Rollins had to laugh at some of the things they were saying, as Mania after Raw usually is.

I do think however they should have ended the show with Brock destroying everything.

But I will say this again, Cena Vs Ambrose was very good, as was Ziggler Vs Bryan. We also saw the Raw debut of Neville, who will be exciting to watch.

By the way, Sting’s interview after Raw was interesting. He more or less said last night was a joy, and he’d love to do more, it’s all in WWE’s court. Fans wanted Sting Vs Taker. I also would love to see Cena Vs Sting.

Why not?

Give me your thoughts of the show.

WWE Wrestlemania 31 3/29/15

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

NXT pre-show is set in 12 minutes.

We are at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida.  Renee Young, Corey Graves, Jason Alberts, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the pre-show.

Tonight, Kevin Owens Vs Sami Zayn, for the NXT Championship.

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.

Charlotte joins the panel.

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.

Who becomes “The One”?

Big Show and Kane attacks Reigns after the match, and the crowd wants Rusev.  Bit instead we get….

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.
