Heh. Just got back and Raw is alot different without any commentary. It was a pretty good show what saved it was after Raw was over they had a 3 man tag match between Cena, HBK, and Triple H vs Orton, JBL and Umaga. Of course you know who won which made the night end on the right way. They had JR out in the ring dancing and did the DX thing with Cena.

As far as the crowd it was alot better then the last time I went to see a WWE match live 7-8 years ago. There were alot of very young kids tonight and there were alot of white trash but it wasn't too bad.

Other than RVD (there was no way out of that), name one top talent who's been suspended as a legit title-holder or legit title-contender. And I mean main-eventer, not Jeff Hardy level.

For Regal's sake, I hope it was 'roids and not drugs/alcohol, because he's fought hard to overcome addiction.

You can say Hardy wasn't a main eventer, but every source out there says they planned to put the world title on him by summer at the latest. Some said it would be in the spring. And they just spent the last month building up Regal as the main heel on Raw, only to be forced to end it out of nowhere.

And not that I think Vince is cleaning up and cracking down and God Bless America, but it's kind of silly to say they don't care about wellness after they just changed their policy to where the wrestlers actually get strip-searched beforehand and are stared at while they pee. And it's not like Congress is breathing down their neck at the moment to force them into that change. Supposedly someone in development tried to cheat with a Whizanator or something, and they immediately changed the policy across the board. That's surprisingly pro-active.

The idea that WWE just ignores the test results if it's Cena or HHH or Batista has never been valid, because it would absolutely kill the credbility of the testing agency they're associated with if that info ever came out. And they've had to turn over all the test result records to the government anyway, so the lab would have to be in on it with WWE to get away with that. And that's even more unlikely.

Orton, Hun-Tor and Batista all gained about 20 pounds the week before Wrestlemania, and have maintained it ever since. If you go back and watch shows from early in the year, all 3 were noticably smaller. Maybe they did it naturally.

I think WWE was very serious about wellness up to about that point. I think now, for whatever reason, things have gotten back to 'normal'. Maybe they think they've weathered the storm, in terms of PR.

That goes right back to the lab risking their own credibility. They're going to know guys aren't being tested. The guy who runs their program has been involved in top level sports testing for decades, and he's going to risk his reputation so that Batista can look bigger at a PPV?

I'm sorry, I must have missed this incredible weight gain that Cena and these guys had. And so must have a lot of people, since I haven't seen anyone else mention these extra 25-50 pounds you're describing.

I'm afraid I don't know what relevance a 6 year old clip of Cena and Kurt Angle has to this discussion. If you're saying Cena is smaller in that clip than he is now, that's nice, but Cena was also at his biggest and most jacked up prior to this clip. So what does that mean?

keg in kc
05-21-2008, 05:58 PM
You don't have to go back 5 years, just compare early March bodies to late March bodies or current physiques. I'd say batista's gained in the neighborhood of 35-40, and Orton/HHH 20-30. Cena looks the same as he always has (and he's the one guy who's been vocal all along about being natural).

And I'm not sure it's as much about weight as it is about what they look like. Batista and HHH in particular are absolutely shredded right now. Just look at them.

But, hey, maybe it's natural. I'm not in the locker room or backstage, so what do I know...

That's according to some ex WWE writer in a book. But considering the way ex-writers are falling all over themselves to dump on each other through this Michael Hayes story, they aren't exactly looking like beacons of credibility at the moment.

Has anyone watched the HOF on the WrestleMania DVD? Specifically, the part where Flair starts talking about the Horsemen and then about Arn, and they cut to Arn in the audience giving Flair THE COLDEST DEATH STARE EVER?

Holy crap. After the Flair retirement episode of Raw, there was a line in Figure 4 Weekly that said Flair and Arn have had issues for several years. But damn. Arn looked like he wanted to pull a Benoit.

I guess that's why Flair didn't ask Arn to induct him.

That's pretty funny considering if it weren't for Flair, Arn would be a short order cook.

Orton's been the best thing on Raw in 2008. Losing him hurts.

Apparently they're switching ECW from SD to Raw, meaning ECW is soon going to be taped on Mondays. I have no idea what that will mean, other than the possibility of more Raw talent crossover...

They really need an injection of 'new' on Raw, but they spent so much time and effort on HHH, Cena and Orton the last two years, they've established absolutely nobody else. Kennedy seems to be getting over (jesus he sucks), and Jeff Hardy is obviously over, but neither one is main event at this point, although Hardy is much, much closer. Who else can they possibly elevate?

I have no idea what that will mean, other than the possibility of more Raw talent crossover...That's pretty awesome. ECW needs something to freshen things up a bit, and outside of giving Elijah thirty minutes every week, a Raw relationship could be pretty neat.

Miz-n-Morrison vs. Londrick, a TAG TITLE UNIFICATION angle? (haha, no), DH Smith, Burchill, Murdoch... could be fun to see these guys on Tuesdays, if it doesn't just become "Snitsky's playground" or some shit.

Kennedy seems to be getting over (jesus he sucks), and Jeff Hardy is obviously over, but neither one is main event at this point, although Hardy is much, much closer. Who else can they possibly elevate?Raw was already pretty much recycled stuff, but now that Randy's hurt, Raw is in very deep doodoo. The draft is probably going to help a bit, and I guess they can probably coast to <strike>Vengeance</strike> Night of Champions with a HHH-Cena program.

The Jericho-HBK saga is amazing, and it will hopefully keep building a while. I'd think maybe bring Batista over, turning him, and setting him up to face HHH in a title program could be a decent idea (from a business standpoint, at least), but he seems like the top choice for Edge's transitional period before there's a really big angle for him to work with.

The only thing about the draft is, there really aren't very many main event-caliber heels available with Orton being out and Edge being so entrenched on Smackdown. Turning Batista, HHH, or Cena is one of the options, but outside of that, it's either trotting out JBL's busted ass or pulling the trigger on MVP or Morrison.

I'd love a completely heel Jericho, fresh off of ****ing over HBK, challenging Cena or HHH for the title, but uh... not gonna happen, and even if it does, he'll just get squashed and buried in record time.

Maybe they'll trot out Kozlov for a traditional summertime face-vs-monster match at GAB?

Personally, I'd move him and Punk both over to Raw and do their feud again, but on Monday night. They work well together, and could start to establish each other on the A show. I don't think they're going anywhere with Punk, however; I still see him dropping the briefcase, wasting the title show on the ECW belt, or outright losing his match if/when he cashes it in. He's not beating HHH, and he's not beat Big Show/Kane. A Punk/Edge feud could be interesting, but I think they need to use Edge now the way they used him two years ago with Cena, to establish a new star. And that's not Punk.

Maybe have Morrison work with Kennedy, although he's entrenched with the Incest right now.

They could have something in Lance Cade, eventually, but I don't think what they've been doing with him and Mudoch is going to lead anywhere, for either of them.

They've been trying super-hard with Kofi, but he's not ready for Raw.

It might be time to start taking tag teams seriously, or bring back a lightweight or cruiserweight belt. Something, anything.I'd love a completely heel Jericho, fresh off of ****ing over HBK, challenging Cena or HHH for the title, but uh... not gonna happen, and even if it does, he'll just get squashed and buried in record time.I can't even tell what Jericho is right now. One week he's teasing heel, the next he's total babyface, and now he's losing his mind.Maybe they'll trot out Kozlov for a traditional summertime face-vs-monster match at GAB?Maybe they'll cart Hulk Hogan out again, for the 8 millionth time.

They don't really know exactly what they're doing with them yet, but you can count on them at least giving them both a shot at the big time.

A Punk-Morrison feud on Raw would be amazing, but at this point I'd almost rather them do it on Smackdown so it would actually get a little bit of time.

Rumor (...) is that he's in the doghouse (again). He doesn't have the "traditional" look or physique, which is already a mark against him; if he's rubbing people backstage the wrong way (no, I don't mean Maria *cough*) he's got no chance.

I think there's a problem with direction in the company in general, the way you were talking about MVP and Punk. There's a ton of guys that they just don't seem to know what they want to do with.

I don't think the 'draft' is going to help, but it can't hurt, either.

I'm trying to figure out what they're doing with 'taker. I've never really liked him (I guess I'm the only one) so it wouldn't bother me if he's gone for a while, but that would just be another huge blow to the roster.

That was the best ECW show in a long time, minus the first ten minutes of the main event (boooring). Four-way to start was good, Matt Sydal debuts, and Teddy f*cking Long!

Punk and Kane weren't generating much heat until the near-falls at the end. Cool to tease the GTS, although I didn't think there was any way he was going to get him up for that (where's the anaconda vice?). I guess this week they're pushing him again.

Hopefully Big Show goes over Kane at Night of Champions, he'd be a better (more interesting) champion.

That makes me happy and sad at the same time. If Dragon can get a WWE contract and a nice payday, then good for him. He'll be able to retire sooner. But at the same time, you know that Vince and his big-man obsession will get in the way of putting Danielson where he should be, and that's not in the lower or mid-card. The fact that he's less than 200 lbs will really hurt him with the idiot WWE writers. But at the same time, he was trained by Regal and HBK, so that can't hurt. He's at the stage in his career in ROH where he's passing the torch to the younger guys (like losing the fall to Tyler Black in a tag match over the weekend), so it won't surprise me if he leaves, although I don't want him to. He's one of the very first original ROH guys (along with Low Ki and Christopher Daniels).

Shawn was breaking kayfabe all the damn time, delivering personal attacks on Bret during interviews and during guest commentary.

It was certainly unprofessional, but the sad part about Bret's book is that he basically admits that everything Shawn used to say about him back then was true. He doesn't say "Shawn was right", but he admits that he went around banging broads everywhere he went, constantly cheating on his wife while promoting a "family values" image on TV.

Not that it excuses HBK, but as seriously as Bret seemed to take himself, I can understand how the hypocrisy would start to grate on others around him.

That's certainly true. Bret had about as much to do with their inability to coexist with each other as Shawn did. Nearly everything Shawn said about Bret was true, though it doesn't excuse Shawn from saying those things on camera. Bret could have broken kayfabe, too, and drilled Shawn for being the unstable, pill-popping, power-hungry jackass that he was, but Bret at least had the sense to not let their squabble spiral to that point.

* "After five years, TNA finally got the next to last step of what had been a long-time goal. Once it became apparent that the business model of weekly $9.95 PPV shows with no television didn't work, the goal was to recreate the Monday Night Wars, and be in the WCW position, but with far less stupid spending and hopefully far less stupid booking. And they do spend less." - (WON 2007-09-17)

* "Chavo Jr. & Animal beat Misterio Jr. & Kidman. Schiavone was waiting all day for the line talking about Misterio Jr. wrestling in Mexico, and then said, Mexico is bordered to the south by Guatemala, not Nicaragua, as everybody knows. For the other three million viewers who don't have any idea why he said this, it's because 11 years ago, there was this guy who did a wrestling newsletter named Steve Beverly who had the ear of a guy at TBS named Jeff Carr. Carr made the call that WCW Saturday Night should only have one host, and it was Ross. Schiavone was so mad he went to the WWF for several years. He's hated Beverly ever since. Anyway, last week on 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire', a contestant was asked what country bordered Mexico to the south and called Beverly for a lifeline and Beverly said Nicaragua and his friend hesitated, but went with Beverly's pick, and was wrong." - The Wrestling Observer Newsletter: February 05, 2001

* "When they made the stip where Flair got five minutes with Russo, Russo didn't sell it, and then said 'this is where I'm supposed to play chicken shit heel' to zero pop" - The Wrestling Observer Newsletter: May 08, 2000

* "Miss NWO finally ended with the sight of Bischoff French kissing an overweight mid 50s woman to no cheers, even fewer laughs, and a lot of gagging around the country. By this time the show was as much fun to watch as three hours of somebody masturbating. In fact, I'm not sure that isn't what we were watching." - Dave Meltzer, Wrestling Observer (February 3, 1997)

I was going to post about that earlier, but wasn't sure if people would be interested or not.

I'm actually already an f4w subscriber, and luckily for me my current month-to-month plan rolls over.

The B&V shows are the reason I got the membership in the first place, although I like Alvarez's daily shows, especially now that he's doing the mailbag. His shows with Buddy Wayne and Lance Storm (member shows...) are always really good, too. And now he's going to have Meltzer on 3 times a week, minimum (instead of every other week - he and Buddy Wayne alternated weeks) so I'm pretty thrilled about it.

Now that Eddie Kingston is in ROH, possibly he and Hero could start their feud back up. Hero has gone back to being an evil, no nonsense heel as opposed to a funny tweener.

Cena to Smackdown would be okay with me. MVP to Raw is something I hear a lot on rasslin boards.

Heel Jericho is lovely, but I was all WTF? at the Cade push. It's nice in that it's completely surprising, but I'm worried about the plausibility of it. Cade went, in a single week, from being known as a mediocre tag-team competitor to someone that can take out Cena.

keg in kc
06-17-2008, 12:51 PM
Cade hasn't been pushed yet. My guess is what they'll do is have him join with DiBiase, Jr, and maybe Cody Rhodes to form a young heel stable, with Jericho as the mouthpiece. All these 2nd generation guys. Maybe DH Smith if they ever decide to stop burying him. Part evolution, part four hoursemen.

They're not going to turn any of these guys into stars overnight. What they have to do is stuff like this, where Cade takes out Cena, and then they need to stick with it. They can't have him job next week. Slowly turn it from "WTF?" into something more than a fluke.

That drives me nuts that they ban certain moves, just because some retard like Brock Lesnar tries to do one at Wrestlemania and fails miserably. Glad they at least let Sydal do it, but London's SSP is a thing of beauty. Hope Tyler Black doesn't make it to WWE soon, because then it would be bye-bye to the Phoenix Splash.

Ok, I remember that now. Kidman and Juvi could be pretty botch-tastic at times. Hopefully they are rethinking these bans so that if a guy can do the moves well and safely, they allow it. Obviously in the case of Sydal they made that exception. It's a good thing they did, because his flippy moves are a thing of beauty.

From the Observer (http://www.f4wonline.com/content/view/5719/):

Here’s a scary stat. Every Smackdown world title match on PPV since 2006 has had either Batista, Edge or Undertaker in it. What makes that doubly troubling is that all three have been out during that period for long stretches of time with torn muscles. Even sicker, since the 2002 creation of the second world title, every Raw title match but two had either HHH, Cena or Orton in it. And in both of those two shows, HHH was in the actual main event as his matches were pushed bigger than the title match.

It's been the same shit for 10 years. Longer than 10 years. Hun-Tor. Enough already.

I really hope they blow all 3 shows up with this draft. But especially Raw needs fresh faces, and they need to do whatever it takes to make new stars, whoever it is. If that means the ratings take a hit while you establish Lance Cade or an effective DiBiase/Smith/Rhodes stable, then so be it. They need new more than ever right now, I think.

The question is: will Hun-Tor be willing to put anybody over. I whole-heartedly believe Cena would. And I think Shawn Michaels would at this point. Jericho would. Batista? Not so sure. Undertaker? Probably not. Edge? Definitely.

By Andrew Chiaravalle

Hey, I just got back from the TNA House show in Bloomington. The show was pretty bad and a lot of the talent announced for the show wasn't present. Just today, the day of the show they had Millano Collection AT advertised on there website to be there, he wasnt there. The show was really poor. The only decent matches were AJ Styles vs Robert Roode, and Samoa Joe vs Scott Steiner.

The match results:

Curry Man over Johnny Devine

Super Eric over Kip James

Womens match I don't know who was involved

AJ Styles over Robert Roode

Petey Williams over Kaz and Consequences Creed in a triple threat match

James Storm over Shark Boy

Samoa Joe over Scott Steiner

I heard there were a lot of free tickets given away. I dont know an exact number but it looked like there were probably 1,000-1,500 people there.

The latest Observer mentioned that the rating for the HHH vs. Hardy match (with Cena on commentary) dropped, which Dave said never happens. But he didn't take into account that they took a commercial during the post-10pm overrun so that they could have another money give-away after the match. That's probably what killed the rating.

He made it clear it was a one-time thing, because he said he couldn't remember the last time that it happened. Although I'd bet it probably happened this past week too, since they took another late commercial.

The original main owner absconded with about 70 large of the teams money, it was a huge local scandal...so D-Lo stepped in along with the still present VP to save it, they figured his wallet could save it...what they didnt know, is how lame that town is.

I'm going to another lovely Ring of Honor show in Chicago Ridge and, as usual, it's a pretty loaded card. Here are a few matches that have been announced:

Austin Aries vs. Jimmy Jacobs - this is the hottest feud going in ROH right now and this match should be violent and great. They basically set the groundwork for this feud at the last Chicago show so it's great continuity that they would have their first 1 on 1 match in Chicago.

Bryan Danielson vs. Claudio Castagnoli - first-ever match between these two, and it should deliver

Kevin Steen and El Generico vs. Tyler Black and Necro Butcher - this match should be f-ing great on every level. Generico and Black can match high-flying stuff and then Steen and Butcher can beat the living hell out of each other. This one might steal the show.

Non-title match - Jerry Lynn vs. Nigel McGuiness - this should be interesting as it's non-title. Lynn would be a great veteran to have around to mentor the young guys, so there's a slight possibility they could give him the win in this one. Should be a good match nonetheless.

There's 4 great matches right there, it should be a great show as usual. I now return this thread back to it's regularly scheduled WWE wrestlecrap.

Look out, Vince. JR's shooting!

As many of you know, I was “drafted” to Smackdown Monday night in the “random lottery”. Obviously that means I will be leaving Monday Night Raw and my long time partner Jerry Lawler.

I am not happy about this surprise development.

I also contemplated calling it a career Monday night and not going to Houston to tape SD.

After speaking with my wife and thinking on this matter until 6 a.m. Tuesday morning, I have decided to do the right thing for the fans who care and the talent who care and begin my new assignment.

It has been explained to me that the WWE’s Smackdown tenure on My Network is a high priority within the corporation. Allegedly, my presence is needed in that effort.

Many are speculating about when I learned of this development…the same time those of you were watching at home. I should have detected something with the demeanor of certain individuals either thru their plastic, poker faces or the perceived smirk that I thought I might have seen on some of their faces during the day.

As far as going to Connecticut each week to do Smackdown post production, that’s not going to happen. Either Mick Foley can handle it or the WWE can install a DSL line in my home to facilitate the work.

I will miss working with the King as the wrestling biz is one in which a guy can count his legit friends on one hand…even after a 30 plus year career. King has been like a brother to me….albeit an “older brother”. We will remain friends no matter that our team has been corporately imploded.

I believe that I have been strongly loyal to the WWE no matter the hands that were dealt to me over the years. In my tenure there I have earned a good living of which I am thankful. I will fulfill my commitments that I have made because unlike many in the business, my word is still my bond.

I can’t predict how long my Smackdown tenure will be, but I can promise that no matter how long or short it is that I will do my utmost best while sitting at ringside. I am not the kind of man who will “phone in” a damn thing.

My sincere thanks to all of you who have supported me on RAW over the years. I hope I was able to provide you a memory or two. Hopefully, we can create new memories now on Smackdown.

Based on my professional experiences, I look at each broadcast as potentially my last, which helps keep me motivated. So with that said we begin another chapter in my crazy life in the unpredictable world of ‘rasslin.

I still plan on attending RAW in my home market of OKC next Monday and I hear that tickets are still available. Any one have any extras?

Boomer Sooner!

I'd like to know why switching shows for a ****in announcer is such a big deal. He sits there and calls the show, man how hard. And news JR, you and King are a ****in tired and stale act and have been for years at this point.

Totally agree with you there...

I guess Londrick is dead now, with Kendrick going to SD.

DH Smith must not be DiBiase's partner.

Finlay and Hornswaggle on ECW? Poor Fit. Although maybe he'll be doing some training.

Carlito/Santino finis.

Why can't Deuce just go away. And Chuck Polumbo.

Enlightening interview on the behind the scenes goings at WWECW. I encourage you to watch any Steve Corino shoot. They are great, and he's not bitter.

I'm not sure where they're going with no major titles on Raw, although you knew they were going to push SD heavily with the move to MyNetworkTV. I'm assuming JBL is going to take Kofi's title tonight, after the way he beat him down last week (or was that the week before?).

Apparently it's been known for months that HHH was going to SD, and he cut promos for it months ago, but everybody had non-disclosure agreements that ran until last week.

I use to like cena but now god its awful. I can also see jbl wining it and bragging every week i hope they don't do this it would be as awful as it was when edge had the title with lena all the time that was bad. Can't they let someone new win and keep the belt


also what is with all these wwe facts proclaiming they are so great it's kind of annoying.

as bad as he is I love jericho

RAW is finally recognizing the need for young talent to start taking the reigns. CM Punk as WHC is lively and fresh, Kofi as IC champ is hopefully the start of renewed importance for that belt and the midcard. Hell, even DiBiase and Rhodes seem to be an interesting fit with each other.

Okay, so I expected Punk's music to hit when Edge was talking about how Raw was missing a world champion, but uh...

HOLY ****ING SHIT

As soon as edge came out, I was like "oh shit, oh shit, batista's going to nail him and punk's going to get the belt".

And then it f*cking happened.

The first half hour of Raw was f*cking AWESOME. JR was great, like you knew he would be, then Edge came out, and was awesome, like you knew he would be. F*cking laser-hot heat. Then enter Batista. I wasn't sure what the crowd reaction to Punk would be, but they f*cking ate that UP.

Awesome. I can't believe I just saw that.

Ultra Peanut

THAT is unpredictable television. I haven't been that legitimately nervous during a match since at least the Orton-HHH last man standing at No Mercy.

Punk is being portrayed as a kind of "on the job training" champ right now, which is great as long as they keep having him eke things out and progressively stronger. I love the poetic justice for Edge, too.

And the writing on this Jericho angle is even stronger. He keeps being correct, but in a way that makes him more sanctimonious than sympathetic. Having Kofi pull his tights, only for him to retaliate and be DQed... just ****ing genius. Shades of gray, but effective shades of gray rather than Russo's hacky conceptualization of it.

Just... well done, WWE. You've completely revitalized Raw over the course of one week.

Also, having Cena and Cryme Tyme as allies further bolsters Punk's street cred.

The first half hour of Raw was f*cking AWESOME.I didn't realize it until they went to commercial, but the opening segment of Raw was an incredible 25 minutes long. And an incredible 25 minutes.

I'm watching Raw again (Wow, I never do that), and I would be remiss if I didn't mention how completely MANIC Edge was when he was yelling at JR. His eyes were trying to escape from his head. Amazing.

Cody's promo was actually pretty decent, too, though the complete lack of heat for that entire segment was pretty painful.

Oh, and Santino's Batman line. Jesus, I love that faux-hawked mediocre wrestler.

Jamie Noble is awesome, too. They should dedicate ten minutes of each Raw to Noble trying to get some and then getting his ass kicked.

I like the shakeup, I have a friend who HATES Punk and Kingston though so talking to her about Raw will be joyous...There's some absolutely hilarious rage coming from people who, just last night, were badmouthing Punk fans for being naive morons regarding their hopes that he would cash in MITB against Edge.
