If you still have Raw on your DVR, I highly recommend going back to the Cena/Wyatt promo. After Cena finishes, Wyatt asks something like, "How can I be sure, John?" and the mics pick up a lone voice from the dead crowd. The sassiest lady you ever heard screams...

"BECAUSE HE KICKED YOUR ASS AT WRESTLEMANIA, THAT'S HOW!!!"

It's still real to her, damn it.

Random side story -- I went to see Mick Foley's stand-up act last week in Richmond. Funny stuff, I highly recommend it. Anyway, one of his bits was his youngest son asking if Santa Claus was fake. The punch line was him tearing up and telling his son "He's still real to me, dammit!!" Good times.

    Mind you, I think right now the "4th man" is Steph.


Unless they do an old school wargames match... Evolution (with Flair) and Kane vs Sting, Bryan, and The Shield?

Give Kane a dirty cheat win at ER, one last run with the WWE title, drops it back to Bryan at Payback.

<3 that .gif so much, lol. This is why I'm looking forward to a Hell No EXPLODES! feud. Those two were comedy GOLD.

Also, for the record I have no idea who the hell Crisley is either, nor am I interested in watching his crappy USA show in order to find out. Thank goodness this isn't WCW or Crisley would be feuding with Christian for the World Title by now.

Yeah, but this scenario makes the Shield look like dunces, doesn't it? I mean we just hear Dave and Randy tell Triple H that the Shield are his problem, and then the Shield goes out and makes itself Dave and Randy's problem. Why wouldn't you think that they were going to go right back and re-form Evolution?!

The other scenario, that Steph somehow manipulated the Shield into attacking Dave and Randy, thereby causing the reunion of Evolution, makes sense in the context of the little "I told you" scene they had right after Dave and Orton were backstage after their match.

YES! YES! YES!

So annoying how the ads just assume we all know who Chrisley is! Even a "You may remember him from...." or something would help.

I absolutely LOVE it when Bray throws in weird little religious references. Things like saying he's lived for a long time, or that you know him by many names.
I'm definitely no expert on those things, but sometimes he says things and they linger in your mind and you -know- it has to mean more.
So yes, this Raw he said he is a seducer, accuser and a destroyer. And lo' and behold, one quick google search later.

Cena's corny pictures actually helped things for once, as Bray countered right away by pointing out Cena always does this. I hope they can deliver in that cage match.

The outcome of all first round matches seemed sort of obvious (one guy has been getting pushed, the other guy..not) but still they were fun to watch.

Personally I liked the build up for Evolution reunion.
And it'll raise the stakes for the Shield, because HHH was right, nobody can stand against them when they're together.
How good is -that- story. You need 3 former champs together to try and stop the upstarts.

Oh and Paige doing the submission finisher will help her a lot. There was a very audible reaction from the crowd.

If Kane really is retiring soon, they could add a bit of spice to that Extreme Rules match by making it Title vs. Career. Bryan wins, Kane goes off on a great match and the two hug it out afterwards for old times' sake.

He did a lot more of that talk in NXT. In fact there was a promo where he directly said that's who he was. That was one of those "stolen" promos that all ended up on Youtube so I dunno if it was ever meant to be seen by the public.

The whole thing works better with an air of mystery to it.

I just miss when he used to dance with his opponents limp body.

    In Cena's previous feud, Randy Orton beat up his Dad. Those are the actions of someone who is evil. That is what someone does if you're trying to get a 'good guy' to flip a switch and join the dark side. The Wyatt's just kind of talk. If they're going to be the alleged heel in this feud, then perhaps they should do something heel-ish.


Yeah, saying the name of the city you're in for a cheap pop feels like a face move. Not very evil.

JR on twitter seem to call them out as well as most of the heels in the WWE for not being evil enough. While I agree with him, its pretty tough when the fans hate the number one babyface and the boss is doing all the evil things, so no one will out evil him.

Chrisley is a Kroll Show skit but real. He thinks he's all that and a bag of chips and more. Can we talk about Oculus though.

Putting Bryan over Kane multiple times before Mania was bad planning, but the mask does give him a "but now I'm Dude Love!" fresh coat of pain. Eagerly looking forward to brand new handwringing over who closes the sPPecial eVent.

I like the direction, and the crowd was flat all night, but it was still pretty gawd dang funny that as much as Evolution gets brought up as the only WWE angle in permanent continuity, their theme got zero pop. I almost expected them to go back through the curtain and try again in case people didn't hear the first time.

Cena was about as bad as Cena can be on the complete Cena spectrum. Wyatt wins in the cage, but hopefully he gets the 3 and not just escapery.

At the moment, I Don't Get Why Jack Swagger took a countout against Cesaro last week only to do the clean job here.

Yeah, it didn't take long for that move to get over.

    Symmetry.


So it has to be asked, who wins in an 11-on-11, the faces or the heels? Titus cancels himself out.

A script for this show was posted. No one's confirmed it's authentic, but someone would've had to put in a lot of time to create a fake one. These things are massive and detailed.

It's also clearly a draft of the script and not the final one. Cena and Bray's segment has no Photoshop at that point, Also, while all the matches which would make up the IC tournament actually happen, only Barrett/Ziggler was scheduled to be a tournament match at that point. (One of the last pages gives away who was planned to win the IC tournament at that point,; it may change but it also just may be a spoiler.)

The roster page lists CM Punk as "INJ", which turns out to be in this case short hand for "it's a complex situation which we don't want to talk about so just don't ask" (and apparently AJ asked for time off.)

Evan Bourne is listed on the roster page, which means they haven't forgotten he exists, which is nice. He's not listed on either face or heel side, which is not an encouraging sign. Also not encouraging is a mention of taking Zeke off the roster page, which suggests being on the page doesn't actually mean much.

Also - Rosa Mendes is a heel? I don't think I knew that. I guess she was a True Diva and all, maybe that stuck.

So, the Wyatts' "DAH!" clip is officially referred to as HORROR GRAPHIC. I like that.

And do we know why Summer Rae is out until May 14?

Oh! And I just noticed Sami Zayn listed under "available talent for Raw." Interesting.

They're about to do a Middle Eastern tour and apparently Zayn speaks Arabic, so he's being brought along on that tour as a result.

Edit: Also, this "To Do" list of upcoming filming was supposedly leaked.

As predicted by oh so many, HHH won the Rumble. As hoped for by just as many, Jericho won!! But the subject of who will be in the main event at WM is pretty much discussed till death by all.. I hope it's a double main event like it was 10 years ago.
