    How can any scripted show, scripted presumably by writers who write for a living, allow the phrase "destructive structure" to be used so many times. They had multiple people say it so you know it was intentional. Hell in the Cell: Being Two Opposite Things Simultaneously Since 1997.

      I dropped it about a month ago and was skipping more than I watched for a while before that. I just got tired of spending three hours on a TV show and thinking "thank god THAT'S over" when I was done. I don't have time for that.


    In fairness, this has been a string of shows that were almost 1995 bad. RAW was actually pretty enjoyable a few months ago. After Summerslam it just went totally off the rails. I consider September-November WWE's off season, even if Vince doesn't. It was also horrendous this time last year.




Using this logic, "Season Premier" was the biggest swerve in years.

Kinda. It was usually when Raw ratings went down anyhow due to the dog show, which now resides in a more demographically sensible network. So what if stuff dies down around the holidays for these guys? Seriously, they work on Christmas for troops, taking October off to avoid getting waylaid by the MLB Postseason (which is now solely a cable contender) or Monday Night Football (which is now solely a cable contender) is rather sensible. The Monday Night Wars are over, the days of competing for territory recognition are over, the days off are well deserved and furthermore, very well timed. A topic of strong discussion in the past was the notion of a pro-wrestling union that protected performers above all else, and the only concession was that there were those too greedy to allow it to happen.

I think Raw had it's ups and downs, and it had parts that were less exciting than others. However, I watched it all the way through and felt entertained at the end.

Ambrose's worst segment was still good, if only because of the piledriver, which teases that Ambrose is going to do the piledriver again, which would be a legit WTF moment for fans who've been watching since 2002. Fuck you if you don't like Foley's Christmas love; for him it's a hobby, and furthermore, he doesn't scrutinize ours, he IS ours.

I just pictured Cole backstage at Raw on Monday, if a person came around the corner unexpectedly, him yelling: "(Insert person's name)FROM OUTTA NOWHERE!"

Or perhaps one of those backstage segments where HHH and Rollins are talking and Orton comes up -- I can see either HHH or Rollins saying "Whoa there, Randy -- you just came up [wink] from outta nowhere!"

I like Dr Unlikely's Reigns theory. In fact I equate it to my Washington Redskins. We had Reigns, who is the future. He is RG3. He goes down, and suddenly Ambrose looks like he'll be the guy. Some of us even fool ourselves into thinking that he should be the guy in this WWE Universe. Ambrose is Kirk Cousins.

So now we quickly see that Ambrose will not work on top, mostly because he is given bad material and a bad team (of writers). So now I see how perhaps Reigns is/was the right guy all along. That is, until he gets hurt again, and then we are back to square one.

Oh, and Colt McCoy is Randy Orton, a guy who only becomes relevant again because of outside forces. He becomes the new focus, until he reminds us that he'll never draw another dime for his team. And Randy in fact will be in Dallas soon.

This is the worst sports wrestling analogy of all time. Ambrose has been Brady to Reigns Bledsoe with just a much worse coach.

Well, during my latest occasional check to see if the 13th and final episode of "Season 1" of Wrestlicious was posted to the BiteTV page, I was SHOCKED and saddened to discover that Bite must have CANCELLED the show...
