Someone called into one of the podcasts I listen to.
>name was Steve
I like you this much
I don' know. The last couple of Raws have been pretty decent, and I'm starting to get hyped for the Roman/Bray feud. Both have come a long way since that one awkward match they had like a year ago.
And speaking of Cena, he's supposedly leaving for a few of months. Who's he gonna drop the title to? And is it possible he actually puts someone over clean? Cesaro seemed a likely candidate before being fed to Big Show.
One Idea that I saw was something along the lines of
>Cena retains v Kofi Kingson tonight
>Cena loses title v Big E next week
>Dudleys win titles v Kofi and Xavier at HiaC
>Big E retains v Cena at HiaC
>Dudley title run
>New Day freebird US Title run
>Takes title from New Day
>Dudleys put New Day over
Then we have a taste of Big E with his own title, a break from Cena, and New Day as 3 time tag champs. It seems Idealistic, but sort of plausible.
at least Cena is taking a bunch of time off soon although apparently Vince is running creative 100% and micro managing everything due to ratings.....
Tonight could be interesting or a complete disaster; sounds fun.
I'd like a lot of things. There are a whole bunch of people who deserve it, but there's setup for New Day to take it. Vince loves them now and if he's taking full control, it's likely they'll get more love than some of the others.
I swear, Cena going off on the New Day last monday was one of his most heelish acts, and those have been piling up recently. It's not even his character that I dislike anymore, bur rather the fact that he can do whatever he wants and still somhow come out as the good guy.
Its the Sheamus way but yes since its forever face Cena is 100x worse
I know exactly what you mean. He sounded like his (non kayfabe) intention was to bury them, instead of the normal never give up shtick.
It raises some questions.
Like what you said with Vince in full control.
The last time ratings dropped as low as they just did, we got the Attitude Era. I doubt we'll get that, but it could be the kind of incentive Vince needs to give fans a little more of what they want.
If there were a time where a Cena could plausibly turn heel, it's around now.
Vince always has final say. The difference now is that he has first say as well.
>not remembering the Dean Ambrose Attendance Championship
He doesn't always effect everything otherwise KO wouldn't be champ.
I remember it, all right. But that was more because of Shield antics than a solo push of him not doing anything with the belt.
Now that's Ambrose can do his own thing, as we saw with the beggining of the year, him as a champ would be fun.
Oh, wait, no fun allowed on RAW. Thanks Vince and Dunn.
Well he was always in tag matches, so there wasn't that much opportunity to defend in the first place. They probably gave it to him so that all of the shield could have titles and look strong. And you probably don't want to remember who he lost it to.
Starts with HR recap, this Raw will be shit
Shouldn't you Bolieve in the WWE?
My party as been pooped on too much
Stand by me. We'll get ours one day.
Beeg should just retire. Honestly. I love him and all, but a lot of legends are being hurt recently and I'm getting scarred for him. If he keeps trying to move like the young guys, he's not gonna last long.
Weekly Reminder that the Hulkster has it rough
>Wyatts vs. Reignettes
DQ match over in less than 2 minutes, plus aftermath later on in the show, says I.
I'd pay to see a Raw with no tag matches, unless it was actual tag teams, and clean victories on at least once
>Lets talk about cancer
>now here are the Wyatts
didn't they do that last month with the Connors cure too?
guys, is the audio really bad this raw?
theyre doing surround sound i think and michael cole sounds super loud and far to the right speakers and jbl sounds almost unhearable and super far to the left
the main channel (the ring and audience) is significantly quieter than michael cole
anyone having this problem? watching on tv not stream.
this is how all Smackdowns sound to me so I think its Dunn trying to control crowd noise, like the silent please retire at Show earlier
Sigh. These terrible stories are ruining the WWE for me. Every week it's the Seth vs. whoever's standing in his way this time, Wyatts vs. the Not-Shield, Diva Revolution, and whatever else to take up time. It's really getting disheartening.
I thought the match wasn't that bad until Reigns got tagged in for the last 2 minutes of that 20+ minute match. Orton and Ambrose has some good chemistry together and against each other.
Reigns' focus on Bray fucked up the match, though.
can you bury bed rock?
>still call it an iron man match even with the women
Maybe "iron person match" doesn't have enough of a ring to it..?
You best believe I have that too.
If anybody wants to hang out and live chat, enjoy Raw together just follow the link.
It requires no effort.
Goddammit Paige is so fucking hot.
Every time i see her i get mad that i'll never tongue her asshole.
I bet after she had a whiskey session she'd let you. It's all about realistic goals. For me, I want to play with Becky's hair. I don't think it's creepy at all. No.. not creepy at all.
You can accomplish anything if you Bolieve!
-except wrestle on Raw
sorry i had a good copy pasta set up but i ereased it by mistake
so here is a lazy version
holy shit, look at that dude. he is sooo big and soo black
why does he he have all those muscles for
i bet he has trouble wiping himself on the toilet with all those muscles getting in the way
Xavier answered the open challenge. They played their characters, and Cena takes it as ultimate disrespect and wrestles sort of on the heel side. New Day interferes when Cena's about to get the 3 count and they manage to not all be decimated by Super Cena. That's about it.
Is there a worse character then Steph?
Always gets her way, forces herself into things, flips back and forth between heel and face and buries all
Come on Vince just bring back Hulk Hogan so he can put enough butts in your seats to make enough money to fund cancer research
I get breast cancer for this segment
>IF YOU BUY THIS SHIRT WE WILL CURE CANCER
Cure the cancer that is shitty writing team first for fuck sake before you strike on to more important matters
It sure is awful in here tonight.
it matches Raw
Also I have a small sliver of hope for the Cena (blarf) US OC since its looks like the main event, Cenas vaction and them hyping who could be answering it but I know it will be terrible... tis the life of a WWE fan
>another 6 person tag and divas
At least Sasha is here
So I just came home to this abortion of a promo, what have I missed so far?
Also, who replaced Hogan for head shiller for Susan G. Scheister?
Nothing worth mentioning
>>742156 I just wanna hug her like a bear almost suplexing.
Or hug like Bayley, you got it anywat.
>>742311 Hi from the land of Yogurt, Kebabs, and Topkeks anyway. I was eating rice with chicken and garlic yogurt. What's your WWE RAW meal?
Bayley is another one i wanna do terrible things to.
her ass was on point at the event in NYC this weekend
a pillow, shit is boring
fucking hell my dad just walked in on this shit
he literally just hit me and said no more wrestling in this household
fuck you guys I gave wrestling a chance and now hes gonna tell my whole family im watching some gay man drama
Who's fault is this?
Vince? Steph? Hunter? Brisco? Paterson? I think Cole has a say in creative.
What the fuck man. How big of a crowd of PC police yes men did vince surround himself with to tell him that this is good and working
literally was grabbing the remote myself, yea New Day
>I think he's good in the ring
No he's not. He has NO "psychology" in the ring, as all these shitty smarks who think they know all about wrestling believe. The guy flops around the ring like a fish from the slightest moves, then no-sells everything and wins with a roll up. SHITTY wrestler, one of the worst of all time.
It was hilarious due to the absurdity of the situation. This huge fat black man knocked up a grandma and she popped out a hand. It was absolutely ridiculous. It wasn't funny like a witty joke. There is more than one way to find something hilarious. You both come across like you have 1-dimensional senses of humor.
regardless, if you compare the summer/rusev to mark henry/mae young to everything else that was going on in the WWE during those times, i'd much rather be in the hand birth era than this one. any day of the fucking week.
>shitty smarks who think they know all about wrestling
Sorry for implying you're a retarded retard. This damn place rubs off on me in a bad way.
I still think the hand thing was horrible with no redeeming qualities other than we can pinpoint the stupidest thing in wrestling history.
But you can have your opinion like everyone else.
And you people though Vince would completely run the show into the ground.
The New Day just came out on top of Cena, Ziggler, and the Duddleys.
That was my favorite end segment ever.
Replace Dolph with Dog Ziggler and it be best Raw segment of the year
Big Boss Man did AND attack Beeg at his Dad's funeral
Hulk Hogan will never be stopped.
i really dont give a shit about anything going on in WWE right now the show is so fucking bad beyond any expectations, has fallen super low from what originally got me into wrestling in 1999 and to it be good again they´d have to fire literally everyone
