Odd about the lack of mention of Charlie Sheen. ;-) The show opening with the crowd chanting to DX "You're gonna get KIIIIIIIIIIlllleddddd~!" would be fantastic. Bring on the F5's and Heyman. Think Vince has got over Big Show's KO punch to show up? I hope so. Just looked up who the champ was on Raw's debut that Punk was talking about tonight. Why couldn't he mention him by name? Also, this has got to rub at Vince wrong. From Raw's Wiki page:
It is the fifth longest-running weekly wrestling show in history. The longest running wrestling shows are WCW Saturday Night (28 years), WCW WorldWide (26 years), Wrestling at the Chase (24 years) and World of Sport (20 years). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monday_Night_Raw
Damn, that Dubaya Sea Dubaya~! Eight more years and you'll be nothing to me!!!!!!!!!
My biggest concern with Punk/Cena isn't that Punk will lose. In fact, a major title change would be the crown jewel of Vince's "stack the show with everything" mentality of Raw 1000.
My big concern is that it seems they're involving The Rock so then the focus goes back onto Cena and The Rock with Punk left seemingly to just be there. I hope I'm wrong on that and they're setting up a Punk/Cena SummerSlam rematch so Punk can have at least one main event.
I mean, Cena/Rock was supposed to be "Once in a Lifetime" and they wouldn't lie about that, would they?
Also, heavily featuring D-X in the Raw 1000 promo when there's so much more relevant things going on made me want to vomit. If it doesn't end with Brock beating HHH down with Michaels' torn limbs, consider me disappointed.
I found this hilarious, however will this impact the angle? Will Bryan be punished ala Morrison? Am I reading too much into things?
It probably won't matter if it does. Like everyone else, I'm picturing an AJ heel turn with someone from NXT/FCW jumping in and causing shenanigans.
This actually annoys me. What's the point in bringing up that it's just a story line. Maybe Bri's a bit insecure..?
Greatest weddings segments. Hrm, didn't they do that at the last wedding we got? I'm trying to remember whose that was, but it eludes me right now.
It'll be interesting if they do have Austin show up as a surrise. Makes you wonder if they just decided to not promote it to get the HUGE pop (and let's be honest, the show is already stacked to the point where naming more people wouldn't get more viewers) or if they're negotiating with him still. Austin seems in a good place as far as work and life goes.
AW's ringside advice sucks. But then again, his expertise was in making them millions of dollars. Not being a ring coach.
When watching the ppv I was joking around that Titus & Young should check if AW got them that title match within the 30 days. They won it at No Way Out on June 17. Got their match on July 16th. Ok, AW delivered on that one.
The tribute by Rikishi was cool. And him being with his kids is like a year or so in the making. Good times.
Originally posted by John OrquiolaAJ's maid of honor is an easy guess, Kaitlyn.
Chickbusters broke up months ago, man. AJ slapped Kaitlyn 2 weeks in a row then the following AJ beat her all spazzy-like in a match.
Yeah, but even more recently, Kaitlyn was running interference for AJ when Daniel would try to get in the Divas locker room to talk to her. AJ & K8lyn are tight, even if they don't tag, and K8 gets occasionally smacked by AJ.
“@ZackRyder: @CMPunk She played me bro” I got your back.
I just thought, they could be holding Austin's name back as a surprise to shoot his first angle with CM Punk. I'll predict that, and that Bret Hart sharpshoots Heath (in fact, strangely, Bret legit loved working with him in 2010).
And *I* love that sentence. Viva mixed-and-matched wrestling jargon! Please never stop these reports. Look on the bright side, the last two finishes have been pretty good, with Benoit's "Timmmmbeeeer!!!
