WWE Wrestlemania 30 4/6/14

We are two hours away from Wrestlemania 30, but first, we have our pre-show. Are you ready? Keep checking here throughout the night.

Here we go.

We see video from this past Friday night when Stephanie McMahon and HHH talk about their Wrestlemania experience.

We see the complete set, and it’s gorgeous. We are in The Mercedes-Benz Superdome, in New Orleans.

Josh Matthews welcome us to the pre-show. Our expert panelists today are Mick Foley, Booker T, and Shawn Michaels.

In our second hour, we will see a Fatal 4-Way for the Tag Team Titles. The Uso’s Vs The Real Americans Vs Rybaxel Vs Los Matadores.

Renee Young is in the Social Media room, talking about tonight’s Andre the Giant Memorial Cup. We can tweet who we think will win the event.

The panelists talk about that match, for later tonight.

But now, we get the John Cena Vs Bray Wyatt preview.

As Shawn Michaels is talking about this match, The Wyatt Family interrupt us.

Bray has done some terrible things, to good people. He had a very good friend, like a brother. He could have helped his friend out, but he didn’t. His friend went right into the fire, and it was beautiful. Now if he does something like this to his friend, imagine what he’s going to do to John.

….He’s got the whole world right in his hand….he’s got the whole wide world in his hand….

We come back, from that promo. Cena has never met an opponent like this man. He is a darker, meaner version of Mankind, when he faced Shawn at Mind Games, back in 1996.

The Streak vs The Beast, tonight. The Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar.

Preview video for this.

Byron Saxson is trying to get a word from Brock Lesnar. Paul Heyman intervenes. This is history in the making, The Undertaker’s streak will be conquered by Brock Lesnar. We can tell our children, our grandchildren about this day.

An hour and a half away from Wrestlemania. Wrestlemania video is playing now.

Alex Riley is standing at Champions Square, talking with the fans.

Josh goes right back with Renee Young at the Social Media Lounge.

Shawn Merriman, from the San Diego Chargers is here now, giving us his Wrestlemania moments.

The winner of Daniel Bryan Vs HHH will head on to the main event in the Triple Threat match for the WWE World Title.

Daniel Bryan’s road to Wrestlemania is playing now.

A great video here, and it brings up memories of just how rough his road was.

Tom Phillips interviews Daniel. He will be in two matches tonight, or he will go down trying. He lost alot of respect for HHH as a person, but he respects him as a competitor. He’s strong, but so is Daniel, just in a different way. He is doing this for the people, he owes us this moment. It’s his night, but it’s also our night. This is for all of the people who have been told no, or you’re not good enough, big enough, this is about us. Our moment, tonight.

Shawn is going with Daniel tonight. He is enjoying his road to stardom.

Oh boy, now we are getting our ritual how to download WWE Network manual.

Now we see Batista piece, with Booker T interviewing both of Big Dave.

Tonight, 30 men will vie for the first ever Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Earlier today, we see security moving the Andre trophy, and move it to Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Hulk Hogan video is being shown.

Now we are heading to hour 2, and this will exclusively be shown on WWE Network.

Our second hour will have a Fatal 4-Way for the WWE Tag Team Titles, our first match tonight.

Jimmy Hart joins the panel.

Renee Young is on the Social Media lounge, it’s time to read my tweets.

Andre The Giant video is now playing.

The Fatal 4-Way is now an Elimination Tag match, guaranteed, the winners become the champions, and we will have 3 pinfalls.

Wrestlemania rundown is now being talked about.

Alex Riley is joining the panel, with Shawn leaving.

Jimmy Hart is trending on Twitter.

Lilian Garcia is making her Wrestlemania entrance.

John Cena talks with Michael Cole, about Cena’s legacy.

Also tonight, The Shield will face Kane and The New Age Outlaws.

Ambrose wants The Outlaws and Kane to bring their best, because their best won’t be good enough.

Rollins understands their history, but when the old dies up, and the new rises, you will believe in The Shield.

The new symbol of excellence.

Trish Stratus enters, as Jimmy Hart leaves.

Trish discusses the upcoming Diva Invitational.

And also tonight, 4-Team Elimination Tag match, for the WWE Tag Team Titles are up now.

The Uso’s Vs The Real Americans Vs Los Matadores Vs Rybaxel.

Los Matadores are eliminated, when Diego taps out to the Patriot Lock, by Swagger.

3 teams are left.

Rybaxel loses, when Cesaro hits a Neutralizer on Ryback, pinning him.

We down to two teams.

This should have kicked off the PPV.

It’s time to fly…

The Uso’s retain the Tag Titles with a double splash, pinning Cesaro.

A great opener, and the crowd is fired up tonight.

Now Swagger is blaming this on Cesaro. Zeb is trying to calm things down, but Swagger hits a Patriot Lock. The problem is he let go.

Zeb wants Swagger to shake his hand, and Cesaro doesn’t know. He shook his hand, but it’s time to go swinging.

Cesaro just turned babyface.

We go back to the panelists, who try to explain about their Wrestlemania moments.

Josh brings up The Vickie Guerrero Divas Invitational. One fall to a finish, chances are high AJ Lee loses her Divas Title.

Wrestlemania begins….now.

30 years, we have celebrated Wrestlemania. Now, this is a new chapter to an unfinished book.

Welcome to Wrestlemania.

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

The host of Wrestlemania, Hulk Hogan kicks off the show.

Well, let me tell you something, brother.

He wants to welcome us to Wrestlemania 30, brother. He was there for the very first Wrestlemania at Madison Square Garden, teaming up with Mr. T and defeating “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorf. And now, we are in the Superdome, brother for Wrestlemania 30. This is about special moments.

The glass breaks, the “Texas Rattlesnake” Stone Cold Steve Austin gives us a special moment.

The two stare each other in the eye.

If you’re ready for Wrestlemania, give me a hell yeah.

Normally, when Stone Cold Steve Austin is in this ring, he opens a can of whoop ass on someone. if you want Austin to give Hogan a can of whoop ass, give him a hell yeah.

Hell yeah.

Austin sat with Hogan last night, and saw what he did at Wrestlemania I….what?
Wrestlemania 2….what?
Wrestlemania 3….what?
Wrestlemania 4….what?
Wrestlemania 5…..what?

The list goes on and on, and he is here to say he respects the hell out of him. And this night is not about them, it’s about the young guys who have an opportunity to make a name out of themselves. And always remember….Austin 3:16 says I just whooped your ass.

If Ya Smell What The Rock Is Cooking….

Yes boys and girls, it’s The Rock.

This is a great way to start the show off.

Finally, The Rock has come back to New Orleans….

Finally, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan have come back to the Superdome.

Superdome chant, because Hogan messed that up.

When he looks across the room, he doesn’t see two of the biggest ICOns in the ring, he sees a very good friend of his, and a childhood idol. He has had the honor of facing both men at Wrestlemania. But they both have had an incredible impact with the boys in the back.

There is a man later tonight, fighting for hustle, loyalty, and respect. But without the training, eating your vitamins, and saying your prayers 29 years ago, that never would have happened.

There is a guy who is going to fight the machine, and fight against the authority. That wouldn’t have happened if a SOB hadn’t fought the boss, and beat his ass.

Also, did you ever wonder why there are so many new babies 9 months from now? It’s because of everyone wanted to make Rock babies.

We have seen moments, and we are going to see more of them. If King Kong Bundy, Batista, Yokozuna all faced them, the three of them would still put their boots straight up their asses.

If Ya Smell What The Rock Is Cooking.

And that’s the bottom line cause Stone Cold said so.

So, whatcha going to do when The Rock, Stone Cold, Hulkamania, and The Superdome run wild on you, brother.

And we just got started folks.

Our first match is Daniel Bryan Vs HHH, with the winner getting into the Triple Threat match later tonight, for the WWE Title.

Stephanie McMahon is here to introduce us to “The King of Kings” HHH.

Daniel Bryan defeats HHH with his single leg high knee.

Stephanie is stunned, and she slaps Daniel, and HHH attacks Daniel from behind, and smashes his arm with a chairshot.

Incredible match between both men. Wrestlemania is off to a great start.

Kane and The Outlaws Vs The Shield in 6-man tag match is up now.

The Shield wins with a Double Triple Powerbomb, Rollins pinning Billy. Impressive, yet very short match.

Slam City commercial in the back with legends, including “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Sgt. Slaughter, Danny Davis, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase, and Ron Simmons.

Everyone has a price for the “Million Dollar Man”, and our response?

Damn.

Andre The Giant 30-man Battle Royal is now.

Our final two are Big Show and Cesaro.

Cesaro wins, and eliminates Big Show with a body slam. Wow. He just had the Cena and Hogan push, all wrapped up in one.

Awesome.

Kofi made a great save earlier in the match, when he was tossed out of the ring, he landed on the step, but his feet didn’t touch the ground. So he went back in.

No question about it, Cesaro is getting the next big push, incredible.

Our next match is John Cena Vs Bray Wyatt. Bray is searching to destroy Cena’s legacy.

New Orleans, we’re here….

We have the guy that originally wrote The Wyatts theme song there, performing live.

Cena wins the match with an Attitude Adjustment. Bray wanted Cena to hit him with a chair, cross on over to the dark side. Cena thought about it, but nailed Erick Rowan with a chair instead. Fantastic match, and it told a great story here.

So far, every one of the matches have delivered.

Saluting the WWE Hall of Fame legends right now.

Daniel Bryan is being tended to right now, can he make it for the title match later tonight?

Our next match is The Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar.

Holy shit, Brock Lesnar just beat The Undertaker with a F-5.

The streak is over.

The fans didn’t seem interested in this match, maybe because we all thought Taker would win, but the fact he didn’t scares me, because I can’t imagine a Wrestlemania without The Undertaker. Yet, that might be a reality next year.

The crowd gives him a standing ovation, and his music is playing. Surely, no other streak will be as special as this Wrestlemania streak for The Undertaker.

Divas title match is up now.

Excuse Me….

Vickie Guerrero screams out she wishes the divas luck.

294th day as WWE Divas champ, for AJ Lee.

AJ Lee wins with the Black Widow, retaining her Divas Title, and honestly, nobody knows. Shame on WWE for placing this match after Taker Vs Brock.

Mean Gene is standing by in the back, interviewing Hulk Hogan.

Mr. Wonderful and Piper show up. Piper tells Hogan he is doing a good job hosting Wrestlemania. It doesn’t bother Piper they lost at Wrestlemania, because it was Mr. Wonderful that lost.

How does that make Mr. Wonderful feel? Terrible, but if he had a partner that could watch his back, things would be better. Piper and Wonderful get into Hogan’s face, but here is T with his back up. Pat Patterson shows up in a ref’s shirt. He was the referee at the first Wrestlemania and told them to shake hands, it’s been 30 years.

All four men do, and we have another Wrestlemania moment.

WWE legends are in the house, but now serious business….

Our main event, Randy Orton Vs Batista Vs Daniel Bryan is now up. Rev Theory is performing Randy’s theme.

Of course, it would be nice if the announcers brought that up.

WWE World Title is on the line.

Daniel Bryan wins the WWE World Title, making Batista tap out to the Yes Lock. The Authority made their presence felt earlier in the match, even a Scott Armstrong sighting, but Daniel prevailed through that. He took both Stephanie out, and HHH, hitting HHH with a sledge-hammer shot, and going through Stephanie when he tried to take everyone out.

But then, Batista and Orton teamed together to take out Daniel, with a combination Batista Bomb, and RKO through the announce table. We had EMTs come to tend to Daniel, and wheel him out on a stretcher, but the underdog got off the stretcher, and was back in the match.

No matter what happened, this was Daniel’s night, and the show ends with confetti, and 75,000+ screaming fans chanting yes.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Wrestlemania has come and gone, and it went quite well overall on WWE Network. I truly give them credit on that.

It’s great to see Daniel receive something he has earned for many years. I just hope they book him strong, and has a concise plan for his title reign. In other words, don’t have him lose to everyone else, except title matches. And make it meaningful with whoever beats him. Brock Lesnar might be a wise choice, down the road here, since he beat the streak.

I still can’t believe The Streak is done. All good things must come to an end, but I always thought if someone were to beat him, it would be someone like Cena. And you had to think nobody knew who was going to go over, until the very end, because the announcers were shocked when Taker lost.

This truly is an end of an era.

Every match did its share and give us drama, so a fun show. And Hulk Hogan made his presence felt. What did you think of the show? Send me your thoughts. I will talk to you tomorrow.

WWE Monday Night Raw 3/31/14…Batista Vs Orton….6 Days Away From Wrestlemania

Tonight, we are 6 days away from Wrestlemania, and WWE is reminding us that there are 2 other wrestlers involved in the Triple Threat match at Mania. Batista Vs the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Randy Orton. Will Daniel Bryan show up?

Raw is now.

The Undertaker kicks the show off, we are live in Washington D.C.

21 men have stepped up, and 21 men have been set down. Undertaker doesn’t claim to be better than his victims. But at the Showcase of the Immortals, he will go farther than anyone else. That is why The Streak stays alive. Brock Lesnar is thinking about how he can beat The Streak, but he should think about Taker taking him to the deep water, how is he going to react reaching the bottom of the water? Is he going to give in, or will he try to swim back to shore? Every single one of his victims have tried to swim back to shore, but not one of them have made it back yet.

Brock is dangerous, and there are some that believe in due time, the streak will be broken. But there are many more that believe things can’t be beat. Death, taxes, and The Streak.

Brock Lesnar, this Sunday, at Wrestlemania, you will rest in peace.

Here comes the pain….

Heyman doesn’t mean any disrespect, but his client does. His client has taken the position of this match isn’t what Brock has to win, this is a match where The Undertaker must not lose. But all it takes is one F-5, and 3 seconds later, his undefeated streak is over.

Ladies and gentlemen, WWE will present you the most defining moment, since Hulk Hogan beat the late, great Andre The Giant at Wrestlemania 3. Brock Lesnar, his client will defeat The Undertaker, and end the big streak. That’s not a prediction, that is a spoiler.

They turn around, but Brock wants to get some, and Taker is ready.

Brock has second thoughts, and he points to the sign. But now, he’s heading to the ring.

Brock is stopped at every corner, but Heyman distracts Taker and now comes Brock. Taker has the upper hand, but Brock reverses a slingshot, and hits a clothesline. And now Brock hits a F5…..Every 3 seconds, your life can change.

Our first match is Big E. Vs Alberto Del Rio.

Del Rio wins the match with a kick to the head. This Sunday, Del Rio and Big E are in the Andre The Giant Battle Royal.

Which member of The Shield will face Kane tonight? We can vote on the WWE App.

Also, Randy Orton Vs Batista, one on one. And The Authority have a Farewell to the Yes Movement, and next….Follow the Buzzards.

Last Monday night, we see that The Wyatt Family are in John Cena’s head. The lights went out, when Cena had Luke Harper beat, and when they came back on, Cena was tied up to the ropes, with a sheep mask on.

Bray Wyatt brings up it craves change. You can’t whisper in people’s ears anymore, and expect them to believe you. And spread those lies, do I have your attention now, kid?

They are going to cry for you John. They won’t understand, but in time, they will forget you, and forgive the sinful ways that John has.

Now Bray sings us “He’s got the whole world in his hands”.

Cole, JBL, and King tell us that The Wyatts are in Cena’s head.

We see footage from last night on “Total Divas” when Summer Rae slapped Natalya for telling her she is one step away from being a stripper, due to the clothes she is wearing. So Summer slaps her. Summer Rae, with her own music now, will face Natalya, next.

Just found out, through Vickie Guerrero that the Divas match at Mania is one fall, all 14 divas in the ring, at the same time.

Oh yeah, by the way, Summer Rae won her match.

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

The Authority head to the ring. Stephanie told us that Daniel Bryan is beneath HHH, even at Wrestlemania.

HHH brings up the fans won’t care down the road, because they just want to be a part of something, yet they don’t want to do anything to make it happen. Take that one guy last year. You know the guy that the people ate up his entrance music, what was his name? Oh yeah, Fandangooooooooo. But they had an opportunity to push this kid, but the fans threw him out. The sad thing is the kid is talented, he is a B+ player, maybe an A-. But Daniel Bryan will see that in the end, the fans will throw him away too.

Stephanie asks us if we want to see Daniel Bryan tonight, the fans chant yes, and Stephanie mocks it, telling us he’s not here tonight. He is resting up in New Orleans, and he needs to be.

People tell HHH he is where he is at, because he married well. He didn’t marry well, he married spectacularly. They seal it with a kiss. But HHH is where he is, because he takes the flavor of the months and take them out.

We see a video, narrated by Stephanie, telling us that every single wrestler can pander to the fans, but HHH takes them out.

They all need to play The Game, but he plays it very well. And since he is going to show us to take out Daniel Bryan, he will also show us how powerful he is, by becoming the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Batista has something to say about that.

Batista loved the ending of the Yes Movement, but he noticed he wasn’t a piece of the video. But that is because he never beat Batista.

HHH is tired of that saying, and he brings up to Dave shouldn’t he be focusing on his match tonight?

Yeah, but shouldn’t HHH focus on his match with Daniel, because he may not even beat him.

He forgot though, that HHH is the brain of the company, and Steph is the brawn.

Now Orton comes out, but he of course kisses up to The Authority. He is honored to defend the title match against HHH and Batista. But wouldn’t he at least consider backing out of the title match.

HHH doesn’t want to hear that, because the end of his title reign will come to an end very shortly. That is unless he brings out The Viper, and he means the real VIPER. Because if he does, he doesn’t know if he can beat that VIPER. He has a short time to bring that out, because in his match with Batista tonight, is a No DQ match.

Tonight, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper will host a special Wrestlemania edition of Piper’s Pit.

Which member of The Shield will face Corporate Kane tonight? We decide through the WWE App.

An 8-man tag match now of The Uso’s and Los Matadores Vs The Real Americans and Rybaxel.

Los Matadores and Uso’s win the match when Los Matadores pulled a switch-a-roo and rolled up Swagger for the pin.

Tonight, Randy Orton vs Batista in a No DQ match.

Our next match is Fandango and Damien Sandow Vs The Rhodes Brothers.

The Rhodes Brothers win the match, when Goldust used a Last Call, and pinned Sandow.

Next, the Hounds of Justice explain their beatdown last week.

We see on Smackdown a few weeks ago when Kane had his revenge on The Shield.

The Shield face Kane and The New Age Outlaws, this Sunday at Wrestlemania.

Which member of The Shield face Kane tonight? Vote on the WWE App, now.

The Shield are standing by.

Rollins almost faces bad for Kane, because no matter who face Kane, they will take him out. And the other two will take out The New Age Outlaws.

Ambrose brings up how Kane and The Outlaws disrespected the new symbol of excellence, the fist they have, it stands for the hounds of justice. Believe in The Shield.

Washington D.C….we’re here.

The patriarch of the Wyatt Family, Bray Wyatt is in action, next.

Bray Wyatt will face R-Truth, now.

Sister Abigail, that is all she wrote.

Now Xavier Woods is thrown to the wolves, so to speak.

Bray yells out this is not the beginning, this is the end.

Now a guy shows up behind them, in a sheep mask.

It’s John Cena. He gives Rowan an Attitude Adjustment, and has Bray, but he slips out.

Cena is ready for Wrestlemania.

Still to come tonight, we will see Batsita Vs Orton in a No DQ. We will also see a special Piper’s Pit tonight.

AJ Lee Vs Naomi in a Lumberjill match.

Naomi wins the match her butt drop. The Lumberjills all ganged up on AJ, and went after Tamina when she tried to protect AJ.

This Sunday, Divas Title is on the line with a Vickie Guerrero Diva Invitational. AJ Lee Vs 13 other divas.

Tomorrow morning at 11:00, we will see a live Wrestlemania press conference, on the WWE Network.

Next, we will hear from John Cena, facing your fear.

“Celebrate” is the official theme song to Wrestlemania, by Kid Rock.

Renee Young is with John Cena.

Desperate times call for different measures. This Sunday, Bray will turn Cena into a monster. A man can do dangerous things when he has to fight. You will see fire, you will see rage, and this Sunday, you will see a monster. Is Cena afraid? Yes, but you will see Cena fight for his life. Every wrestler has a beginning, and an end, and Cena will damn sure make it that his career will not end this Sunday. You will be watching history, and if you can’t make it, we will make history by streaming live on the WWE Network. We will see Bray Wyatt, the self-professed “ruler of change”. Wyatt will experience some change, because he stomp a foot in Wyatt’s ass.

We hear from the All-Star panel now, with Booker T, Wade Barrett, and Alex Riley.

Earlier tonight, we see Brock Lesnar give The Undertaker a F-5.

Who will Kane face tonight? Roman Reigns, with an 80% vote. Wow.

Kane wins by DQ when The Shield all swarm in the ring to attack Kane, after The New Age Outlaws came down, but they bail Kane out.

This Sunday, these 6 men face each other.

Piper’s Pit is next.

Hulk Hogan will be at WWE Friday Night Smackdown.

29 years ago today, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper was a part of the first ever Wrestlemania main event. He was not the one who was pinned. But there was a man who played a major role in getting Wrestlemania together. That man is Andre The Giant. 30 superstars will take part in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. The winner gets his Wrestlemania moment. Now people may want to say who his favorite pick is….

And here comes The Miz.

Piper said he would talk about the odds on favorite? The Miz is the odds on favorite, because unlike he or Andre, The Miz has won the main event at Wrestlemania.

Sheamus comes in, he tells the world he will win.

You know where they are going with this.

Titus O’ Neil. When was his last win?

Dolph Ziggler.

Piper pushes Miz into Sheamus, and the fight ensues. Here comes everyone else now.

Rey Mysterio is a part of the Battle Royal too.

But The Big Show is about to clean house.

I am picking Alexander Rusev to win the whole thing, it’s just too obvious Big Show won’t win.

And Piper raises Big Show’s hand.

Next, No DQ match with Batista Vs Randy Orton.

Our main event is up now….Batista Vs Randy Orton in a No DQ match.

The match ends in a no contest, because Daniel Bryan comes out, and beats the crap out of HHH, who was joking around at commentary. Actually, it was an awesome ending, but it also made Orton and Batista look insignificant.

No Promo, just Daniel using a kendo stick, and then chant out “Yes” to 14,000 screaming fans.

Wrestlemania is this Sunday.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This might be one of the worst build ups to Wrestlemania, but they did a fantastic job of building the three big matches. John cena Vs Bray Wyatt, The Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar, and HHH vs Daniel Bryan.

Now, it’s a matter of what happens in these matches. I was disappointed Daniel didn’t do a money promo however. But the end result worked, and it showed a different side to Daniel. Now I want to see a No DQ match.

But boy, Orton and Batista are absolutely invisible in all of this. I somehow believe the end result will be Daniel beating HHH, and then we will see the return of CM Punk, right when Daniel has the title won, and he turns heel. If he doesn’t show up, then he truly is gone for a long time, because I just think all of this is too perfect.

What are your thoughts on this? Let me know here.

WWE Friday Night Smackdown 3/21/14…John Cena Is In Action

The Road to Wrestlemania continues in Houston, Texas. Michael Cole and JBL welcome us to the show, and tonight, we will see a Fatal 4-Way to determine the Number One Contenders for the Tag Team Titles. The Shield Vs The Real Americans Vs 3MB Vs Ryback and Curtis Axel. We will also see John Cena face Luke Harper, one on one.

Kane comes to the ring.

We see what took place this past Monday night when HHH beat the hell out of Daniel Bryan.

Kane tells us that some people are better than others, HHH is better than Daniel Bryan. The Authority are better than us. He even reads a letter from HHH, regretting what he had to do to Daniel, but Daniel was disrespecting his wife, and his company. Everyone is on notice to never mess with The Authority.

When we come back, Fandango, along with Summer Rae will face Fernando, and yes, we do see El Torito too.

You go from winning your Wrestlemania debut to the very next year, you’re losing to Fernando, because of El Torito.

Yup, that’s Fandango’s life, right now.

You still have until Midnight tomorrow night to get WWE Network free for a week.

Fatal 4-way match for the Number One Contenders to the Tag Titles. But next, Dolph Ziggler Vs Damien Sandow.

Ziggler wins the match with a Zig Zag, and he is peaking at the right time, with Wrestlemania right around the corner.

John Cena Vs Luke Harper, tonight on Smackdown.

We hear from The Wyatt Family. Luke tells John it isn’t safe for him to be here tonight. Because he is the reaper, and he will carry on the sins for him tonight.

Bray tells us he is the power, and is in John’s control. He can ruin his entire world.

Cue back to Cole and JBL.

Slam City commercial, again.

Fatal 4-Way match with the winner being the Number One Contender to the Tag Titles. The Shield Vs The Real Americans Vs 3MB Vs Ryback and Curtis Axel.

The match ends in a no contest when Kane comes out and beats down on Reigns, while Rybaxel and The Real Americans take out Ambrose and Rollins. When Reigns fights back with Kane, New Age Outlaws help him and beat down all three men.

Miz Tv time is now.

Miz officially announces he will be in the Battle Royal, at Wrestlemania. But he will beat 29 other superstars, and will win the illustrious Andre The Giant trophy.

His guest tonight is The Big Show.

Big Show is the odds-on favorite to win the Battle Royal. Show has always been a fan of Andre, and has been compared to him, and will be honored to win the Battle Royal.

Miz brings up Big Show losing 9 times at Wrestlemania, and Show tells him he was selling out arenas when Miz was popping some pimples, so watch what he says.

Miz has other guests tonight, the men involved in the Battle Royal. Titus O’ Neil, Kofi Kingston, Big E, Mark Henry, The Rhodes Brothers, Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio.

Sheamus just wants to fight.

Miz brings up we all want to prove to win the trophy, and he can’t think of a better way to do it, by taking out The Big Show, now.

Big Show takes them all out, to show us he truly is the favorite.

Our next match is Big E Vs Alberto Del Rio.

Del Rio wins the match with a kick to the head.

Earlier today, Santino runs into Emma.

Emma sneaks up to Santino, and they bump heads into each other.

We find out from this past Monday, who the newest inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame will be, next.

Indeed, it is Mr. T that is the latest inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Congratulations to Mr. T, one of the pioneers to the original main event of Wrestlemania I.

The Bella Twins are facing Natalya and Summer Rae.

Tamina Snuka and AJ Lee made up, it seems, AJ is at the commentary.

Brie pins Natalya with the X Factor, after Natalya and Summer could not get along.

Nikki is looking at AJ, she wants her title shot.

Footage from this past Tuesday night on Main Event, with The Undertaker.

He told Heyman that he will be at Raw this Monday night, he is inviting Brock to join him.

Rybaxel, Real Americans, and 3MB are in Kane’s office. Kane congratulates all of the men for doing their jobs. Kane rewards Rybaxel a Tag team Title shot. He also rewards The real Americans a Tag team Title shot, and gives 3MB a spot in the Battle Royal at Wrestlemania.

The new Age Outlaws come in, and Kane said he knew he could on them, and Roaddog made it clear, he always can.

Lana introduces us to Alexander Rusev.

An update about Daniel Bryan, a partial dislocation of shoulder. He will not need surgery, but he will be at Raw this Monday night.

Our main event, John Cena Vs Luke Harper is now.

Cena wins with an Attitude Adjustment, match was rather short. The show ends with Cena and Bray staring at each other.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A very short main event, but a good Fatal 4-way that sets up Wrestlemania rather nicely. We will see what happens this Monday night with Daniel Bryan, HHH, Brock Lesnar, and The Undertaker. They also need to profile the WWE World Champion, Randy Orton and Batista. They must show their presence in the next two weeks, to make the Triple Threat match seem bigger too.

What were your thoughts on the show? I will talk to you Monday night.

WWE Monday Night Raw 3/17/14…3 Weeks Away From Wrestlemania

20 days away from the big show, Wrestlemania 30. The Authority will have a presence tonight, since we know Daniel Bryan will face HHH at the biggest show of the year. Where do we go from here?

Raw is now.

We are live in San Antonio, Texas.

HHH is in the ring, starting the show off.

When it’s all said and done, this is our fault. It didn’t have to come to this, but HHH will crush our dreams, end the Yes Movement, and end Daniel Bryan. We forced him his hand. He had a week to think about this, and he will do what he does best in the ring, cold, and calculated, take Daniel Bryan out. But he has a few things to say to Daniel Bryan, man to man. But until then, we have a hell of a show for us.

Enter Batista.

Batista said HHH may have big problems with Daniel Bryan, but he has bigger problems with Batista. Who the hell does HHH think he is, putting that “Billy Goat” Daniel Bryan into HIS match for the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

HHH asks what Batista is thinking, does he think Daniel has a chance in beating HHH?

Here comes the WWE World Champion, Randy Orton.

Randy agrees with Batista, because there is just a slight possibility that Daniel is added to the main event of Wrestlemania.

The fans are chanting yes, but HHH makes it clear, it won’t happen.

Has Daniel really gotten that far into their heads? Dave answers apparently not as much as he has gotten into HHH’s.

Orton wants a one on one no DQ match with Daniel to show big Dave what he can do.

HHH makes the match.

Randy brings up the fans aren’t cheering Daniel because of the Yes Movement, it’s because people don’t care about Batista. They didn’t care when he left, and they care even less, when he came back.

Batista screams they don’t care about Orton as a champion, because he sucks. He’s just a paper champion, and Dave will fix that at Mania.

They push each other, and get into each other’s faces, and HHH leaves.

Dave tells HHH he has to fix this.

HHH is sick of Hollywood superstars coming back, and telling HHH how to run this company, and he is sick of superstars with God-given abilities so messed up in the head that they have to rely on HHH to keeping him as champion. Maybe the old man was right all along. The only people to trust is yourself.

There will be a Triple Threat match for the WWE World Title at Wrestlemania, although Daniel Bryan won’t be in it. Because after HHH beats him, it will be Orton Vs Batista Vs HHH.

Batista is livid, and Orton gives Batista a RKO.

Tonight, John Cena will respond to The Wyatt Family…again.

Next, The Uso’s Vs The Real Americans.

We see what we just saw before the break. And after the clip, Batista is walking out of the building. He tells Renee Young coming back was a big mistake.

The Uso’s Vs The Real Americans, now.

The Real Americans win with Cesaro pinning Jey with a Neutralizer. Perhaps a Wrestlemania match?

Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show, and we have a big advertisement of Slamcity.com.

Tonight, Daniel Bryan Vs Randy Orton in a No DQ match.

We check out what took place last Friday on Smackdown when Kane forced The Shield to watch his back, and it didn’t end well.

Kane is talking with The Shield. The Authority gave Kane a mission, and he needs to count on The Shield. If they he count on them, then The Authority can’t count on them, so can Kane count on them? Can they be on the same page?

They say they can, and Kane said we will find out.

Hornswoggle is back, handing out gifts, but Bad News Barrett has some bad news.

We are all celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, but we will drink ourselves silly, and all make some mistake that we will regret for the rest of our lives.

Okay….

Sheamus Vs Titus O’ Neil, next.

Sheamus wins with a Brogue Kick, and used Hornswoggle as a shield. Christian, who was at commentary wasn’t impressed.

Renee Young is standing by with Sheamus.

Sheamus wishes us a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Sheamus has entered Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Christian also entered the match, and says he is going to win. He than attacks Sheamus from behind.

Killswitch engaged on the outside.

John Cena responds to The Wyatts, next.

Next week, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Joe Manganiello will be special guests for Raw. They are both in the upcoming movie “Sabotage”. Also Scooby-Doo and The Mystery Machine will be here too.

Enter John Cena.

Cena tells us he is afraid of Bray Wyatt, what he represents, who he is. But his biggest fear is we are starting to buy into what he is saying. Cena has faced all challengers in his 12-year career. Who is the best, but Bray Wyatt does not care about that. He is telling us that Cena is phony, but he says the hell with that. He is all about fighting for his legacy, and Wrestlemania represents that.

The Wyatts show up on the Titantron.

Children believe in superheroes. They want to believe in everything that is good, but Bray’s childhood, it wasn’t all about rainbows and butterflies. Bray has a few scars too, but it was his birth right. It taught him that everything in Bray’s life will wither and die. Bray can be just like John. He can sign autographs, and kiss babies, and tell everyone to buy his merchandise. He can go with his plastic girlfriend, and live in a castle. But he doesn’t care if Bray lives or dies, he just wants the world to see John for what Bray sees in him.

Follow the buzzards.

No DQ match….Daniel Bryan Vs Randy Orton is next.

Daniel Bryan wins when Batista comes back, and spears Orton in what was a good match. Is it a preview to the Wrestlemania match?

Batista then gives Orton a Batista Bomb, for good measure.

You can still sign up for a free week of WWE Network, until Saturday at midnight. They show us how to download the channel.

Paul Heyman speaks, next.

Heyman comes out, and says his name is Paul Heyman, and he is the advocate for the beast incarnate….Brock Lesnar.

He came here to illustrate the fact The Undertaker’s past opponents are against guys Taker had barely survived. Those very same opponents have been victimized by Brock Lesnar.

We see video of Undertaker Vs Brock Lesnar now.

The Undertaker’s vaunted streak will be conquered by Brock Lesnar at April 6th, 2014, at Wrestlemania….The Undertaker and his streak shall rest in peace.

At Wrestlemania 30, it will be The Undertaker’s 21-0 record against Brock Lesnar.

Stephanie asks HHH that he wants to talk to Daniel Bryan, and HHH agrees, he will talk to him, like a man. Stephanie reminds HHH that he disrespected them, he disrespected her family, their legacy.

Stephanie asks what happens when HHH beats Daniel, and then wins the WWE World Heavyweight Title, and then what? He goes on the road, while they conduct business. Is he even thinking clearly?

HHH says for the first time in a long time, he is thinking very clearly, he has this.

Stephanie warns he better.

Fandango, with Summer Rae is in action, next against Goldust.

Goldust wins with a Final Cut.

We see Kane heading to the ring, what are his orders for The Shield? We will find out, next.

The Undertaker will be on Main Event tomorrow night.

Here comes Kane.

The ring is for action, but there are some things that should not happen in this ring, such as the Occupy Raw last week. On behalf of The Authority, he did some research of who helped Daniel Bryan with the stunt. It was a man who lives in Memphis, and he will join us, that man is Jerry “The King” Lawler.

Here comes The Shield.

They order Jerry to get into the ring, and off he goes.

They have known each other for a long time, and he won’t enjoy doing what he has to do, well maybe a little. Is there anything King wants to say?

Rollins sees the look in his eye, and he has a feeling Daniel Bryan won’t save him, and The Shield always does what is best for business.

They look at each other, and now turn to Kane.

Kane tries to fight off, but a slap by Ambrose, a dropkick by Rollins, and a spear by Reigns….Triple Powerbomb.

Believe in The Shield.

Daniel Bryan-HHH-Man-to-man, tonight.

Before the break, we see a Triple Powerbomb by The Shield on Kane.

The Bella Twins are doing commentary, and we see the return of Naomi, with The Funkadactyls in action.

They are facing AJ Lee and Tamina.

AJ and Tamina lose to The Funkadactyls when Naomi, who is wearing an eyepatch, hits a split-legged moonsault to win.

After the match, AJ blames Tamina on the loss, and Tamina shoves AJ.

WWE2K14 commercial.

We find out the newest inductee to the WWE Hall of Fame, next.

We are in San Antonio tonight, and our next inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame is?

Mr. T.

That’s a great class of inductions this year.

Footage from last week’s Raw, where Hulk Hogan talks about Andre The Giant 30-Man Battle Royal.

The Big Show entered the match, and we have an 8-man tag match of Big Show, Big E, Mark Henry, and Dolph Ziggler Vs Alberto Del Rio, Damien Sandow, Ryback, and Curtis Axel.

Big Show pins Sandow with a Chokeslam for his team.

Earlier tonight, Daniel Bryan pins Orton with a spear by Batista, and then we see a Batista Bomb by Dave.

Batista is leaving again, and Renee asked him if he is staying. Batista has never quit anything in his life. Whether it’s HHH or Daniel Bryan added to the triple Threat match, he is leaving Wrestlemania as WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Bray Wyatt is in action, next.

The Undertaker is on The Main Event for the first time tomorrow night, and on Smackdown, Cena will face Luke Harper.

But now….San Antonio, we’re here.

Bray Wyatt Vs Kofi Kingston.

Sister Abigail, that’s all she wrote.

Daniel Bryan and HHH with a man-to-man talk is next.

Behold the King….The King of Kings….on your knees Punk.

Here comes HHH.

HHH has some things he needs to get off his chest, so he asks Daniel to come to the ring, and here he comes.

HHH wants to say this, like a man. Many things have happened between them, since Summerslam. Many things he had done because it was best for business. None of this was personal, and he might not understand it, but to be honest he can’t make anyone understand the decisions he has made that is best for this company. But last week, he crossed the line that can’t be crossed.

But this is the fact, in 3 weeks, on the biggest stage, the two men will get in the ring together, and fight. Neither man should apologize to what each man do to each other, but the bottom line is Daniel crossed the line, and he has no choice to put an end to this movement, and he has no choice to shut it down. And if he has to shut it down, then no apologies. He will always do what is best for business, and at the end, no hard feelings, may the best man win.

HHH holds out his hand, and Daniel refuses to shake his hand.

Before HHH leaves, he has dumped a ton on him, since Summerslam, he has done everything possible, and yet he is still standing here.

The fans are chanting his name, and HHH admits they are chanting this because Daniel is still standing here, and at the end, Daniel has earned HHH’s respect.

Now comes Stephanie McMahon.

He broke the law, and he endangered her ring, he endangered her husband, the fans, and because of that, she is pressing charges.

Here come the cops.

The cops are being a bit rough here, even when Daniel isn’t fighting, and HHH has seen enough.

Now Daniel is in the ring, all cuffed up and now HHH beats him down.

Wow, what an incredible segment here. HHH beat the crap out of him, with Stephanie egging her husband on. She slapped Daniel a few times, and HHH lays a chair shot to the head on Daniel, telling the fans this is his ring, his show, his company, and there is nothing we can do about it, and ends it with a Pedigree.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

What an incredible show, setting the main Wrestlemania matches, that ends with an incredible segment. There is no question, that Daniel Bryan is the face, and HHH is the heel. It’s authority Vs employee. I also know without question these two men are going to steal the show. Bryan Vs HHH must be a No Holds Barred match now, please WWE, make it happen.

I also want to see Bray Wyatt Vs John Cena. It’s legacy Vs building a career. Hero Vs Anti-Hero. It can’t get any better than that, right?

Are The Shield faces? I believe so, but what will their Wrestlemania match be? It has to be something very cool, to say the least.

One more thing too, what a night for Stephanie, she became the ice princess, we all love to hate. This night was very good, and where do we go from here? Tune in to Main Event tomorrow to see a rare Undertaker appearance. Let me know what you think.
