Last night we held our first ever live blog for Raw and you can see my rambling thoughts of the show in real-time by clicking here.
Let’s kick off with what the entire show was based around: The Rock and John Cena. Rocky delivered three recorded segments throughout the show from various parts of Boston. Keyword: recorded – that will come up a little later on so store that in the back of your...Read more »
11:11: Rock pulled a Cena and exited the ring after he said his peace. It was effective when Cena did it last week, but the Rock left Cena in the ring alone and he thrived. He mimicked Rock with bogus notes on his wrist and then hit hard with strong words driving home the point that he has to win at Wrestlemania. Even though Cena didn't dust off one of his raps as I had hoped, he came very close...Read more »
As I noted earlier today, The Miz has gone from main eventer at last year's Wrestlemania to mid card wrestler in 2012.
He lost on Raw last night to John Cena. I understand the loss to Cena, who needs to look strong before facing the The Rock at Wrestlemania. It has gotten so bad for The Miz that he is not only getting buried on TV, but now during the commercial breaks.
Watch the video...Read more »
Last night’s Raw was all about one thing: The Rock and John Cena’s match at Wrestlemania.
Raw culminated with The Rock’s return and a face-to-face showdown. The Rock delivered a decent promo calling Cena “kung pow chicken.” Was the promo up to Rock’s usually high standards? No, but it was still entertaining. The promo wasn’t “electric” because The Rock was too busy explaining to the fans whey...Read more »
WWE Champion CM Punk has challenged Grammy Award winning singer Chris Brown “to put the gloves on” and fight him with all the money going to charity.
The war of words began in a heated exchange on Twitter Monday night before Raw aired when Punk tweeted, "I would like @chrisbrown fight somebody that can defend themselves," said Punk. “Me curb stomping that turd would be a #wrestlemania...Read more »
Undertaker. Triple H. Wrestlemania. Hell in a Cell. Say no more.
It’s official and thus, we are now on the road to Wrestlemania 28. Yes, we have the WWE building toward a Chris Jericho-CM Punk feud with the title at stake. Yes, we have John Cena vs. The Rock in an icon vs. icon match. But the road to Wrestlemania got a huge boost tonight on Raw in a tremendous segment that made it official:...Read more »
I love to read the message boards after “Raw” each week to see what fans are saying about the WWE’s product. This past week, the boards were filled with fans expressing their feelings about how boring it will be to see Triple H and the Undertaker in the ring one more time. In the immortal words of the Miz, “really?” In other words, is the internet wrestling community (IWC) serious? Are they really...Read more »
All apologies for posting so infrequently here. If you’ve been following my coverage of the MTA as of late, you’ll understand that I’ve been quite busy.
But I felt compelled to drop in today after watching the last few weeks of WWE programming, including the Hell in a Cell pay per view Sunday night and last night’s newsworthy Raw. It’s all led me to write something...Read more »
Actor Hugh Jackman was apparently a big hit this past week on "Monday Night Raw" as a special guest. Just ask WWE star Dolph Ziggler.
Ziggler, accompanied by Vickie Guerrero, was in a match against Long Island native Zack Ryder, who had Jackman in his corner. Guerrero was ejected from ringside after she slapped the spit out of Ryder’s mouth. This prompted Jackman to get...Read more »
