I would like them to catch on. They can take on those rocking jobbers for their first match.

I forgot all about 3 Man Band. That is the perfect choice.

Knowing WWE they'll probably put them in the ring against Shield or Wyatt Family
and have them get squashed. I hope they aren't repackaging these guys only to make them a "comedy" type tag team.

I have a feeling they're going to have a feud with the real Americans...

Mitchy got it right. Here's their debut if you missed it. I have to say, their entrance is freaking outstanding. They put a lot of work into it and I wish them lots of success. The intro itself is as entertaining as the Wyatt Family!

They really should have debuted last week in Chicago. The crowd tonight sucked badly (as expected).

I'm so bored with this whole orton-Bryan angle, however when I saw the live house show in ontario a month back they had a fantastic match together. It's also going to suck when they write RVD off now... I won't blow any surprises but if you've been keeping up with the ADR-RVD angle, you know what's going to happen Sunday...

October 23rd, 2013, 09:34 PM
so the past few raw's have been okay at best... a few good bits here and there such as the big show truck sequence, that was awesome. here are my predictions for this sunday's Hell In A Cell PPV in reverse order (main event to pre show)



Hell In a Cell for the WWE Title
Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton
Special Referee: Shawn Michaels

long drawn back and forth battle for 30 minutes or so, after abusing the hell out of each other, Bryan will get the big kick, then Hunter will come from under the ring and deliver a pedigree to both HBK and DB, theh HHH will count Super Orton 1-2-3

Randy Orton by pinfall

World Heavyweight Title Match
John Cena vs. Alberto Del Rio

super cena dominates and as he goes for the AA, Ricardo comes out and gives cena a low blow, therefore setting up a cena ADR feud that will drag til Royal Rumble


ADR by pinfall


WWE Tag Team Title Match
The Usos vs. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes and Goldust

Although Dean Ambrose will try and intervene, the rhodes bros will get to retain the strap.

Team Rhodes win via pinfall

WWE Divas Title Match
Brie Bella vs. AJ Lee

who cares

Handicap Hell In a Cell Match
Ryback and Paul Heyman vs. CM Punk

Entertaining match, CM Punk (not CM Skunk lol) will pull the win off after he gives ryback a GTS on the cell roof, he then will throw Paul Heyman into the cell, then as Axel comes in to save the day, Big E comes out and sends Axel through a table and grabs PH who then gets a GTS from punk.

CM Punk via pinfall

Los Matadores vs. Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro

Los Matas pick up the win and with that, i think Cesaro goes Rouge and has a feud with Matt Greene... i mean Swagger


Los Matadores via pinfall

WWE Intercontinental Title Kickoff Pre-show Match
Big E Langston vs. Curtis Axel

Big E with a clean win about 15 minutes in, which will set up a feud with the newest Paul Heyman guy, Ryback.

Big E Langston via pinfall


*EDIT* I got a gut feeling the big show is going to tear down the cell wall, walk up to rrrrrrrandy, grab him by the throat, then DB will get the crowd cheering "yes", which big show will stare at DB, smile and knock him out...

Yeah, another Orton reign....Good, I was so hoping Sandow would win after he cashed in. Color me disappointed.

Now Orton...this was the first Raw that I read the play by play cause I have no more interest in DB as they are pushing him back to mid card now, I have no interest in Randy Orton at all....guy is f'ing awful. I want him off my TV ASAP.

I hope the ratings nose dive while DB is in the mid card cause then WWE will see that Orton is not what they think he is.

WWE2K14? No. I'll wait until its on sale in a few weeks. It's the same game as WWE 12 and WWE 13. It's not worth 60 bucks. Not for the story mode alone.

For a few years now, I have been getting the game on the first day for $60 bucks, and then it goes on sale for Black Friday for $25-$30 bucks. I'm not in a hurry to play it, so I'll wait.

Another lackluster show. I hope that Bryan isn't being phased out of the main event. I hope it is just a temporary thing so they can set up a Royal Rumble win and a victory at WM in the main event. Although I don't think I can stomach Mr. No personality as WWE Champion until then, but I guess.....

Also, WTF on the commercial break...It was like..."Blah blah blah..." Commercial, no warning or nothing. Trips was fuming as rumor has it he said "what the F***" and yelled at someone via a headseat....that was the report on the dirtsheets.

As long as Randy Orton is Champion, I have very little interest in WWE. I don't like him or the Authority storyline. It's a dead end and it is doing little in putting people over, other than putting Steph and HHH in the spotlight. Once they go away, I will be back no board.

I read the results for RAW and Smackdown this week. Man, how long until Orton is no longer champion? Sad part is I have been watching WWF/WWE since 1986 and the only wrestler that I can not watch is Orton. I don't think I have ever watched a match all the way through, or listened to a promo. The only guy I dislike.

Really awesome of WWE to do this and I hope they succeed.

So RAW, Smackdown, and Main Event will still be on their regular channels (USA, SyFy, ION). But after they air, they'll be available on the WWE Network.

All the old footage we can ask for (Netflix style).

LIVE PPVs - These were $40-50 alone... each!

Original Programming - Finally they'll debut their reality shows like WWE Legends House and maybe Tough Enough down the line.

All for $10 bucks a month. However the only catch is that it's a 6 month commitment plan. So there's no way to pay $10 for March/April to get Wrestlemania and then cancel in May. You either pay $60 for 6 months or you don't get it at all. They're probably just testing the price point though. They could offer a 2-3 month commitment plan later on for a higher price or something. But either way, for hardcore or casual wrestling fans, this is a sweet deal.

eskymi
January 9th, 2014, 05:22 PM
Right now I have WWE ONDemnand and pay 8 dollars a month. I only get Royal RUmble and WM those are 45 and 55 respectively. That is 196 a year for my WWE entertainment. The WWE Network is 10 bucks a month right now so for 120 a year I can get pretty much all the stuff I enjoy watching on WWE Classics on Demand...plus ALL the PPVs, not just RR and WM. It's a sweet deal for me. Plus i'll be able to watch at work on weekends or holidays or if I ever work midnight OT (ha ha, that'll never happen..but just saying)

Told my wife that on Feb 24th, 2014 I am signing up.

Too bad as Punk is gone, Orton who is pure crap for me is champ, Bryan is still losing matches, Trips is still acting like a douche to make himself seem more important, Batista is supposed to be a face and getting booed like hell, it's not a good time for WWE. But I am still getting the WWE Network as it's too good a deal to pass up.

Then I might just search and see what's available. Probably watch some old school shows just for fun, like WCW or ECW...see what they have.

It goes to show that in the end... Vince, HHH, & Steph will always win. It's great that fans are loud and voicing their displeasure at the current direction the company is insisting on going, but if you're buying tickets and merchandise.. you're still supporting them. The best way is to stop attending the events. Or at the very least, leave the show early before the main event starts when it's clear that they would not include Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, or Dolph Ziggler in it.

It's WWE's lazy way of trying to get everyone on the card without having to think up of any storylines. It's frustrating that so many superstars don't get a chance to shine because WWE Creative is pretty much holding them back.

Quick Predictions. I haven't been watching WWE since the Royal Rumble but I'll be watching this anyway.

http://www.wwe.com/f/wysiwyg/image/2014/04/20140331_Fatal4Way_PreShow_LIGHT_HP.jpg
The Usos vs. Los Matadores vs. The Real Americans vs. Ryback & Curtis Axel (WWE Tag Team Championship Fatal 4-Way Pre-Show Match)

Biggest WM ever because they're trying to squeeze everyone onto the card. That explains Los Matadores in this match. Usos should retain here... no reason for them to lose.

http://www.wwe.com/f/wysiwyg/image/2014/04/20140331_AndreCup_Match_LIGHT_HP.jpg
The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

I'm not really a fan of Battle Royals because everyone starts in the ring at the same time and it's just a cluster**** until you get down to the final 4 guys. The final 4 I'm predicting will be Sheamus, Big E, Alberto Del Rio, and Christian. I think the winner will be Sheamus because WWE still sees him as a top star moving forward.

http://www.wwe.com/f/wysiwyg/image/2014/03/20140306_MatchPreview_LIGHT_HP_BryanHHH.jpg
Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H (Winner to be entered into the WWE World Heavyweight Title Match)

No reason for HHH to win here unless he is dead set on trolling the fans. Daniel Bryan should win this cleanly, though he might sell an injury or whatever going into the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match.

http://www.wwe.com/f/wysiwyg/image/2014/03/20140314_MatchPreview_LIGHT_HP.jpg
The Shield vs. Kane & The New Age Outlaws

I don't know the story here but either way, there's no reason for The Shield to lose either. Rather than rumors of them breaking up at Wrestlemania, I think they're going to give this group a babyface run to see how it goes. Either way, Kane and The New Age Outlaws absolutely have no reason to win a match at Wrestlemania at this point. Expect Roman Reigns, the guy who they like the most to win the match for The Shield.

http://www.wwe.com/f/wysiwyg/image/2014/03/20140324_Diva_MatchPreview_LIGHT_HP.jpg
Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational

So all the Divas on the roster will get a title match on Wrestlemania even though no one deserves one. Makes sense. This match will be ugly. Only one fall to a finish so expect a lot of divas to be thrown to the outside of the ring to clear space. AJ Lee should retain here because why not?

http://www.wwe.com/f/wysiwyg/image/2014/03/20140221_MatchPreview_CenaBray_LIGHT_HP.jpg
John Cena vs Bray Wyatt

Bray Wyatt should not lose this match. But he's fighting against someone who buries people so it's a tough one. Cena has lost his fair share of Wrestlemania matches and seems like he's due for a win. But I think the win may go to Bray Wyatt since too many babyfaces are winning tonight. Cena can just get the win at the next PPV when they fight yet again.

http://www.wwe.com/f/wysiwyg/image/2014/03/wrestlemania/20140331_MatchPreview_LIGHT_HP.jpg
The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

Unfortunately, I'm not excited about this match other than the fact that we get to see Undertaker wrestle again. They haven't announced a stipulation for this one but it'll likely be No DQ. I can't see them actually wrestling a clean 1 on 1 match. Either way, Undertaker's streak will not end. Not that it's a bad thing. ;) Keep it rollin' Taker!

http://www.wwe.com/f/wysiwyg/image/2014/03/20140318_MatchPreview_LIGHT_HP_BatistaOrtonMystery .jpg
WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton vs. Batista vs. Winner of Daniel Bryan-Triple H Match

They're smart to enter Daniel Bryan into this match because the crowd would crap all over it if he's not in it. The finish however is a toss up for me because of my lack of faith in HHH and Vince.

So Daniel Bryan has been screwed around with since Summerslam. This HAS to be the big payoff everyone has been waiting for. Daniel Bryan should leave Wrestlemania with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and it'll be a sight to see when everyone in the Superdome does the "YES!" chants in unison.

But part of me still thinks that Daniel Bryan will be too injured to win or that there will be outside interference or something. It's HHH and Vince's sick way of telling the fans that they can't hi-jack a show no matter how hard they tried. Plus, they already paid for the WWE Network, Tickets, etc.

So yeah, we'll have to wait and see. The safe choice is Daniel Bryan and for Wrestlemania to go off without a bang. If WWE dares go with Orton or Batista, then it should be fun to see fans throw crap in the ring.

Undertaker losing was completely out of left field and pointless. If they really wanted to end his streak, he should have lost to CM Punk last year. Why lose it to a part timer in Brock? Seems like WWE just wanted a shock factor. Kinda sucks though because in the long run I really wanted them to say that Undertaker was the only wrestler to never lose at Wrestlemania.

What really makes me die a little inside is Super Cena defeated Brock Lesnar with 2 moves a year or two ago at Extreme Rules. So this is the same Lesnar that defeated Taker's streak? Ugh.

Then again, I would rather have Lesnar end Taker's streak than Cena.

I pretty much agree across the board. I actually didn't mind the idea of Taker losing at some point but Lesnar is absolutely the wrong choice because it serves zero purpose and he's rarely around to begin with. Part of the issue though is that since Taker never really wrestles during the year, it's close to impossible to build up a legitimate feud. CM Punk was the correct choice last year but that ship had sailed so I would have just had him retire undefeated. On a smaller note, WTF was with the terrible play by play at the end of that match?

As for Cena, I practically can't even watch his matches because his cheesy schtick just grates on me and also because the same ridiculous booking always occurs.

Those two complaints aside, I still thought it was a great PPV. I found myself smiling and enjoying both Bryan matches as well as the Andre the Giant Battle Royale. It's about time Cesaro got a major push.

I admit they should not be glorified, but if you take out all the guys that did steroids in pro wrestling you wouldn't have many guys to choose from.

What does anyone think about the card for MITB tomorrow? I am looking forward to see which direction they are going with the title match

The MITB card looks extremely weak. I'll likely be tuning it though because the Ladder Matches alone almost always makes the whole show worth my time.

Curtis Axel & Ryback vs. Goldust & Stardust - Obviously Rybaxel will lose here. Great to see Cody become Stardust though.

Summer Rae vs. Layla (Special Referee: Fandango) - Summer Rae because she's in Total Divas.

Rusev vs. Big E - I like Rusev but WWE really dropped the ball with Big E, using him as a jobber here is stupid.

WWE Divas Championship: Paige (c) vs. Naomi - I don't see Paige dropping the Divas Title tonight, especially not to Naomi.

WWE Tag Team Championship: The Usos (c) vs. Luke Harper & Erick Rowan - Would like to see Harper and Rowan leave with the gold, but I just don't see it happening. I personally feel that The Usos are kinda boring but they'll keep it anyway.

Money In The Bank Contract Ladder Match: Kofi Kingston vs. Rob Van Dam vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Bad News Barrett vs. Jack Swagger - This match will likely provide more high-flying action compared to the other Ladder match. But not too much because they can't steal their thunder. Quick run down on each guy...

Kofi Kingston - He has as much of a chance of winning this as Hornswoggle becoming the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Kofi will provide some nice spots in the match, but that will be all. They really need to change his character already or make him a heel.

RVD - Should also provide great spots off the top of a ladder but at this point of his career, he doesn't need the briefcase nor does he need to be the #1 (http://letsgokings.com/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=1) Contender.

Dolph Ziggler - He should be a main eventer, not a mid card jobber/floater. WWE again, dropped the ball on this guy because they fear his past concussion issues coming into play again if they push him to the top. I want him to win the most here, but I just don't see it happening.

Seth Rollins - Should be one of the favorites to win the match here tonight except there is just one problem. Does WWE want him to be the #1 (http://letsgokings.com/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=1) Contender with the briefcase? It's believable, if he has it and HHH is in his corner. But at the same time.. this is HHH and Vince we're talking about. Seth is great in the ring and all, but I don't think WWE thinks he is main event material yet.

Dean Ambrose - Another favorite to win the match. But outside interference may cost him here or his feud with Rollins will prevent him from winning the match. Ambrose is definitely main event material very soon.

Bad News Barrett - Dirt sheets said he was going to win it but Swagger injured him during the Smackdown tapings. Doh! Poor Barrett, I really like this guy. He has it all. The mic skills, looks, ring work. But every time he is about to do something good, either Cena buries him or he gets hurt. What a shame. If he is able to compete in the match, who knows? Maybe he can still win it.

Jack Swagger - WWE dropped the ball on him as well making him a jobber for a long time once he dropped the World Heavyweight Title to the Big Show. WWE buries their guys for so long that the fans just don't care when they win or lose. Poor Swagger.

My prediction: Dean Ambrose or Seth Rollins. I'm going with Ambrose.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match: Kane vs. Sheamus vs. Alberto del Rio vs. Cesaro vs. Roman Reigns vs. John Cena vs. Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt - A lot of main event players here but unfortunately I think they're going the predictable route yet again. They have already said that Brock Lesnar will get a WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match at Summerslam. So immediately, you can cross off a bunch of guys here who could potentially face Brock.

Kane - Yeah, he's not facing Brock.

Sheamus - He has the US Title and he's boring. He ain't facing Brock either.

Alberto Del Rio - Don't know when his contract is up, but he's suppose to be leaving as soon as it's over anyway. Plus, Del Rio vs Lesnar would bomb in terms of drawing people to watch it.

Cesaro - Great wrestler with the best potential of being a great superstar but WWE doesn't see him as a champion just yet. Though having a Heyman guy vs Heyman guy would make for a great storyline.

Roman Reigns - WWE has been making it seem like Reigns will win the match. No doubt will he be a future WWE World Heavyweight Champion, but not this soon. Maybe at Wrestlemania.

John Cena - Super Cena. It's lame, predictable, and WWE loves this. We've already seen a Cena/Lesnar match before and remember how that went? Lesnar dominated the match for 25+ minutes and Cena wins with 2 freaking moves. 2!! *Sigh*

Randy Orton - Yeah, sorry Orton. I don't think you're facing Brock at Summerslam.

Bray Wyatt - Would be awesome to see him with some gold but I don't see him main eventing Summerslam either.

My Prediction: Super Cena. :(

So there ya have it. Weak card but hoping the ladder matches are fun.

I am with you on the weak card. I do love the ladder matches and having two of them will be awesome, they usually don't disappoint. I also agree with most of your predictions, but it will be interesting to see if WWE creative throws a curve ball at everyone tonight with one of the ladder matches.

I am fairly certain Cena is going to win the titles tonight, although I would like to see Reigns square off against Lesnar. I am of the opinion that they will put the titles on Cena to keep them warm for either Lesnar or Daniel Bryan while he is injured.

I think Rollins will end up winning the contract match. Just not sure WWE does this build up for him only to have him lose this match.

Paige is not losing tonight, especially to one half of the Funkadactyls.

Rusev will win, even though WWE has let Big E cut a couple of promos recently. Big E is a good talent but you are right about them misusing him

Summer Rae is definitely the bigger Diva in the match and that will push her to the win as you mentioned.

The Harper's have been on a roll and I do think they will win tonight.

WWE, always going with the usual predictable finish. It is absolutely disgusting to see but it's clear that they don't give a **** what people want.

As for the WWE Title Ladder Match, Reigns looked really good. Unfortunately, Cesaro and Bray looked like filler and didn't really have a prominent role in the match.

The first ladder match was amazing though. Major props to everyone in that match for taking the biggest bumps.

PPV sucked for the most part... aside from the first ladder match and the opening tag team match, it felt I was watching Raw... Rusev/BigE had no business being in the PPV... Hell I didn't even know this was in the PPV, so im guessing short buildup. Summer Rae/Layla... also not PPV material. BTW, WWE PAIGE IS NOT READY!!!!!! Typical predictable PPV ending for today's WWE. This same card in the Attitude era would've had something crazy like... ummmm Reigns winning and then it turned out Reigns was with the Authority the whole time. or Ambrose winning the first MITB match, then cashing in on Cena.. and it was Ambrose the one with the Authority. Bah... anything was better than this ****. Isnt WWE going to get THE PEOPLE WANT A HEEL CENA? God I respect Cena... It has to be tough to go in the ring every night, being booed and still flash a big smile at the people.... when he turns HEEL... if they give him the freedom to channel all the "when the fk did you guys turn on me" pissed off energy towards the people, we will be seeing somewhere special.

And WWE? I know this is one of your highest earning PPV (aside the big four), but... IM AFRAID I HAVE SOME BAD NEWSSSSSSSS It Sucked!

Could they make Rusev and Lana any more like the Dragos in Rocky 4? The product is SO tired thanks to Vince having his daughter and son in law in charge of creative. Speaking of Stephanie and Baldy H, I saw enough of those two together on TV 14 years ago for a lifetime.

Rusev and Lana (and that kind of gimmick in general) is fine to start, but they really do need a storyline feud very badly or else they'll fall victims as all the other foreign people who are just there so people can chant, "USA! USA! USA!". =\

As for HHH and Steph being the main antagonist in 2014... I agree that it is kinda sad and pathetic that we are still seeing this 14 years later. They have no one to blame but themselves for refusing to develop anyone. Cena would be an amazing top heel but they refuse to go that route. But make no mistake, they are still great heels and that's why they're out there.

hahaha I noticed that too with Zeb

Anyways, I don't mind Triple H/Steph on TV.... I hate it when they sound like robots though. Liked them more 14 years ago when they were smartasses. And agree with you about Rusev.... ill make a bold prediction here right now... Rusev has 6 months to be one of the top heels in the WWE. If it doesn't happen, he will be jobbing to a returning Kurt Angle @ the Rumble. And it will be surprising if Rusev goes over with this 1980s gimmick. By WM time, he will be in the same bag as Ziggler, BigE, Sandow, etc etc; cruising around... wrestling everyweek without a storyline or anything....so much wasted talent on the roster.

Same thing will happen with Bo Dallas UNLESS they do something like bring a 'Sister Abigail' character and reveal Bo and Bray are brothers... that could setup a monster feud... however, for that feud to be legit, Bo needs at least a year in the roster. At first I thought Paige would do a great Sister Agigail character, but just when I said to myself she was too raw for the big time... 24 hours she's Divas Champ *face palm* Adam Rose? Im calling him Fandango 2.0 By December, he will be without a story and in the same bag.... as for predictability? anyone else calling someone to wear the Bunny outfit and attack Adam at some point? I can smell that one a mile away. NONE of this is the talent's fault... the writers plain simply suck.

Im not a big fan of Vince Russo, but agree 100% with him on his statement that Vince has changed from a '**** sensors, im going to put on TV whatever I want and deal with ***** later' to 'We gotta do it this way so our stockholders/ sponsors & TV ppl are happy'.

CM Punk was main event status for a whole year.... he cant do it alone cuz it gets repetitive. Im still not buying this whole CM Punk gone crap. The guy is under contract till August, BUT he cannot sign anywhere else because he still 'owes' WWE about 35 work dates. Nobody has asked him about WWE? more like he agrees not to answer questions about it? This is the biggest kept 'secret' ever and WWE AND Punk are playing us. When was the last time someone 'quits' and his/her gf/bf/wife/husband is not punished? AJ kept the divas title for 3 months after that AND only reason she was given time off was cuz they were getting married? Damn so many courtesies for someone that quits. TRUST me... Punk is healing and getting a well deserved rest. He will be back next year... when nobody expects him back.

The one thing CM Punk is doing right is taking a stand against HHH and Vince. Sure, he may actually be burned out or whatever... but I would like to think that he "left" because he is absolutely disgusted at the direction WWE insists on going. He said in his past promos that it doesn't matter if he left, people will still keep buying tickets, merchandise, etc.

I think ultimately, if we all want to see actual change in WWE, we need them to fail. They took a hit with the WWE Network (not having as many subscribers as they originally expected), but they're still selling out their shows. So we're going to be stuck with Super Cena, HHH, and Orton for the forseeable future while guys like Ziggler, Cesaro, Sandow, Rhodes, Swagger, etc will continue to stay in midcard hell.

I think it's an unintentional gimmick and it could have been preventable. It seems like he needed time off and went about the whole thing all wrong. WWE meanwhile, has kept him under contract and I think even extended his contract so he can't join another promotion. But yeah, gimmick or not... it does seem weird that WWE keeps pretending that he doesn't exist because they edited him out of the "history stuff" just like they did Chris Benoit. The most recent video package, the Money in the Bank "by the numbers video" blatantly left out the fact that Punk won the ladder match twice.

Either way, I hope everything works itself out in the end. WWE needs Punk and Punk needs WWE.

The mid-card though, that's just an absolute train wreck and it has been for the past 10 years. We've already discussed it in the recent posts and already agree on things. I just don't understand why the writers, bookers, agents, whatever... do the things they do. It's just so bad.

Yea, even if his contract expires, it gets auto extended as Punk still owes WWE like 37 work dates. If he doesn't fulfill these dates in 2 years, WWE can sue. But from whats been confirmed, Punk is still getting paid and DID get the WrestleMania cut. As for doing it wrong? who knows? Maybe they all planned it this way. Maybe they wanted us to believe it went down this way. Its completely illogical that like you said, he gets edited out of stuff... not as bad as Benoit, but like back in the WCW days they would do with 'deserters' like Nash, Hall, Jarrett, etc etc etc. Seems strange he gets edited out yet his profile is STILL in the active roster AND his wife just won the Divas title. WWE has a history of punishing the 'other half' of deserters or trouble makers.

Well said. Everything about this situation is just so bizarre. With the "brains" around WWE, I truly believe that they did not plan this at all. They're definitely not smart enough for that. :lol: I think it is what it is and they're rolling with the punches. If this is all a ruse, I just don't see what they're gaining out of it in the long run other than a massive pop when Punk returns, but he gets that anyway.

But you're right, it's very weird to see Punk's profile intact on WWE.com this whole time and AJ still winning the Divas title. (Although it did look like she got punished by losing it right after Wrestlemania.) Drew McIntyre is the perfect example here, when his wife Tiffany caused some trouble at Summerslam right when his "Chosen One" gimmick was on a high. Then Drew McIntyre ended up jobbing for 3-4 years right away after that until his recent release. >_<

All in all, very strange. Vince has a good relationship with a lot of people. That's why Jericho, RVD, and Lesnar keep coming back even if it's part time. In the past, he would never allow a part time schedule.. which is why Kurt Angle went to TNA. Definitely would love to see him back in the WWE on a part time basis, he is still one of the best in the business.

Obviously they know that their issue right now is finding new "stars". Their biggest problem is actually refusing to push and take a chance on people. I don't understand why they hold so many people back, and then complain that there isn't any breakout stars to replace guys like Cena, Orton, HHH, Kane, Undertaker, etc.

KingsRoyalty
July 1st, 2014, 12:29 PM
That's the other bizarre thing... even though it might seem like AJ got 'punished', the truth is.. she was away 2 months to rest and get married. As for Kurt, oh yea he will be back... he already said that he wants a last WWE run on a lighter schedule.. Im sure they will hammer something out.

And youre right about Drew... his punishment buried him horribly cuz it happened when he was at his peak... a peak he reached waaaaaay too early. Same thing can be said about The Miz... when the Total Divas idea was being thrown, she was going to be one of the show's headliners... then she quit cuz 'she really wasn't much into it'... all of a sudden the Miz loses his title and started jobbing... months later, some damage control was done when they got married and Maryse quickly agreed to a 'legends deal' where she signs autographs and make non tv appearances etc etc etc... all of a sudden, Miz is in a movie and seems like ready for a new push. Drew's release could be a good thing, he is still 28 and could use 2-3 years in Japan or maybe Jarret's new company... he promised hed be back one day... we shall see.

And why they hold them back? I think the issue isn't finding new stars, the issue is they are pushing them waaaaaayyy too quickly..... notice how Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins are all over atm.... coincidence they have paid their dues with 2 years in the 'minors' and 2+ years in the Shield?

I'm a fan of KENTA, so I'm kinda sad he is going to the E, because you won't see any of his moves you see in the video above and a lot of KENTA's move set was "borrowed" by Punk and I doubt the E would let him use his moves, after Punk made them his own.

So they did house shows in Japan on Thursday/Friday or whatever. I really wish they would tape a RAW and Smackdown over there, just to see how the crowd reacts on TV. I mean, I already know that they tend to be respectful and are silent during the matches and they'll applaud both competitors after the match, regardless of who wins/loses. Still, would be nice to see them get a RAW/Smackdown instead of just house shows.

Last nights show was aweful... I usually judge RAW based on the times I fall asleep. The average is 2 times, last night it was 5.

"Nope, thank YOU.Thanks for all the help and support through the years. Health and happiness above all.Don't ever take any **** from anybody."

Thanks for the gifs! Although the second one doesn't include the part where they faked rubbing their titties together. But I want to cry about the fact that those young ladies are almost literally dancing on the corpse of Fandango's once (briefly) promising WWE career. Say what you want about the gimmick, but Johnny Curtis (season 4 winner of NXT!) could and should be a solid Intercontinental Championship level competitor.

Yup. And that leads us back all the way to WWE Creative. They don't know how to book their characters. They constantly had him lose by having him walk away from his matches early in his Fandango gimmick... because why? No reason, other than the fact that he doesn't think winning is important I guess? They had him defeat Jericho at Wrestlemania in his debut match, only to piss it away in a hurry.

For any characters, it doesn't matter what their gimmick is... they need a meaningful feud to have any kind of success. All they had him do was dance and retreat, dance and retreat. They did it for so long that no one cares whether he wins or loses really. Everyone in the mid-card has pretty much fallen into this category and some are actually beyond repair with how long they have been forced to job.

This is why I miss the Attitude Era sooo much. I actually stopped watching for a while when they started this PG crap. When the Attitude Era was going it was can't miss television and if I remember right, there was not very many wrestlers in bad programs. Then again WWE really has no serious competition to worry about anymore so they can get away with it.

As for Sunday...

The main event is predictable, everyone knows Cena is going to win so Lesnar can come back at Summer Slam and win

Jericho vs Wyatt, honestly not that appealing

Naomi vs Cameron, who cares

Rusev vs Swagger has potential, but Rusev will end up winning again

Battle Royal, my money is on Cesaro although he looks to be falling out of favor with creative lately

We can only hope the Uso's and Wyatt family is as good as the match from last month's PPV

Ambrose vs Rollins can be good, but the big red retard will probably interfere at some point and change the course of the match

AJ vs Paige, calling it right now match of the night...


Is it sad that the only match I am absolutely looking forward to on Sunday is AJ vs Paige?

If we're talking about how predictable WWE is these days.... we can smell this a mile away... Roman Reigns will win the 2014 Rumble

As for Punk? Anyone else notice how his status got moved to alumni... no mention of him at ALL. He thanked the fans... no mention of WWE at ALL. They still don't answer questions about the issue. As it usually happens, AJ was not 'punished'? instead was given a month or two off... they could've just ignored her and keep the Paige as champ story, yet she returns and on her first night wins the title back? Im sorry but this whole thing smells like BS to me. How many times have they moved ppl to 'alumni' and then they return right away? Several How many times has a wrestler said they were retired/gone and they return right away? Chris Jericho being the latest as he stated on twitter 2 weeks prior to his return that 'Im not returning to wrestling anytime soon'. So Punk says hes starting a band? and a podcast? so what? Jericho has both too.

My take? Punk has a deal just like Jericho... comeback for half a year, take another half year off. TV, PPVs and a small number of house shows. His status has officially been moved to alumni. A lot of ppl are officially moving on and more will move on next month. Makes perfect 'unpredictable' sense for him to comeback @ Summerslam.

Then again, WWE hasn't really been unpredictable the last few years.

Anyways, im still not buying this CM Punk is gone crap. Too much silence from a lot of involved people, and if he was "retired" there would be no sense for WWE to be omitting him from everything. Obviously WWE wants us to forget about him.... for a while ;)

As soon as I saw Miz spending 95% of the match outside I knew he was going to win. Also typical WWE! Heath Slater gets a huge pop for eliminating Cessaro, then hes made look like a fool being tossed by Sheamus less than 10 seconds later. Im calling it, tomorrow Cesaro vs Heath Slater -.-

As for the 4 corner? I think Cena retains.

Didn't bother with the PPV. Read the results and wasn't surprised.

Sucks for the people who looked forward to the Ambrose/Rollins match only for them to lie to the fans by changing their mind. I mean, we all get it. They're building up to a bigger PPV in Summerslam, but you still shouldn't use a PPV to promote another PPV. That's what RAWs and Smackdowns are for!

Miz winning IC Title is hit or miss for me. I mean, I like the guy and they are already going forward with a Sheamus/Miz feud anyway, but I guess they want to perhaps unify the US and IC title as well? Bad idea if you ask me. Sure, they have both been meaningless titles for the last 5+ years but with such a big roster, unifying them seems dumb.

I would have much preferred they gave the IC title to Bo Dallas. He was 15 and Bo going in to the match right? They should have had him win the title, and somehow continue to stay undefeated for a couple of months. Then you could actually have a legit IC Title contender, trying to get the belt AND give Bo Dallas his first loss.

Heath Slater eliminating Cesaro was refreshing, but it means nothing if you don't push Heath Slater. Quite honestly, that's how the Royal Rumble should be in January. More surprise eliminations.

And finally, the Wyatt Family should have won the Tag Titles. I really hate the way they book the Tag Division. They're always talking about wanting a stronger tag division but it's hard to have one when one team constantly defeats the contending team, every single time there is a title match. All the non-title matches the Wyatts have over the Usos is meaningless when they can't win "the big one" after 3-5 tries. I just checked out their title history and in the last 2 years, it only changed hands 4 times. The WWE Title alone (something more prestigious) changed hands 8 times in two years.

RVD got injured and was pulled from the match. Weird how it wasn't mentioned by the announcers.

And yea I agree. That's why the 'old PPVs' are now called "The Big Four" (WM, SumSla, SurvS & RR). The rest are "special events". Which means more like a glorified Raw. After all, they spent a good 20 minutes combined showing Raw rewinds.

Really the 2 fake Russians (yes I know she is from Latvia, still not Russia) referenced the MH17 crash on the PPV? Ask Mark Copani (Muhammad Hassan) how that worked out for his career.

Heres the thing... to be honest, and I did see the PPV... she said and I quote "you blame Russia for recent events". Really? I for once did not see anything wrong with that remark. To me it felt like it was directed to the whole 'world tension' because of Russia. Maybe my PPV feed was edited or something. Or maybe this is just the typical media that are WWE haters and like to microscope whatever they can find to throw dirt at the business. But that quote is open to interpretation and extremely general IMO. Am I missing something here?

Anyways, Vince McMahon is not the guy he once was. Seems like the storyline was removed or modified as Lana came out last night without a promo AND there was no recurrence of Rusev's feud with Jack Swagger.

In the end, I hope the story does get modified. Never been a big fan the whole flag/country storylines. Its been done waaaay too many times, then again.. most wrestling feuds have too xD

Raw ware weird. And tbh, the divas storylines were far better than the superstars this week. I don't recall a RAW where there were 3 in ring segments of divas (no male wrestlers involved). Same as the ending. The Stephanie/Brie angle finishing Raw is probably the first female only finish the show since the Trish/Lita match like a decade ago. Is it bad that Im actually looking forward to Steph/Brie and AJ/Paige matches more than the rest of the card?
