The SmarK Rant for Monday Night RAW – 11.07.94
My friend sent me a Destiny beta code. No idea if it’s something I’ll care about, but yay for free stuff and yay for finally getting something interesting for my Xbox One!
Live from Bushkill, PA. Is that literally a high school gym? Good lord.
Your hosts are Vince McMahon and the empty hole in my soul once occupied by Randy Savage. Also, Jerry Lawler, beginning a run that would last for 20 years, give or take.
Yeah, I know that’s wacky numbering, but blame the Network as they have The Main Event listed as episode 37 of SNME.
I have multiple versions of the two matches featured on this show, so we’ll just include everything for fun, since they’ve been done on different DVDs and such.
Ross today announced via Twitter that today his is last day as a contracted employee of the WWE.
More Changes from This Past RAW's Original Script
Originally, Roman Reigns was going to face Rusev and Bo Dallas was going to face The Great Khali in a rematch from last week but that was dropped over the course of the day.

TNA/Spike TV Update
Negotiations between TNA officials and Spike TV are ongoing with TNA hopeful they can have a deal in place by next month's TV tapings so they can officially announce a deal.
With Brock,why is he so shielded and protected? I know that's a broad question,but in terms of match quality and how quickly the initial buzz/pop wears off after each return,is he worth the outlay?
For example,Brock returns and loses a hot match to Cena. OK. He then draws a big buyrate against HHH. Their two rematches sucked however,but one was a WrestleMania and one was a rushed B-show bout so no real spotlight,in terms if numbers, was shone on either.
His Punk bout at SummerSlam last year was a **** affair at least but the event flopped finacially. The Big Show angle stunk in every respect earlier this year, and the subsequent Taker stuff had historical value but the match itself was never going to be a classic.
Now,he's going to be champion in a few weeks,timed brilliantly to 'save' the Network, and then pretty much vanish with the belt. I still like Brock and his mystique a hell of a lot,but when the dust settles on this run will it be exposed as an expensive luxury?

Also, a full slate of MLB games this evening.
Full Match Here: AJ Styles vs. Kazuchika Okada (7/21/14)
the swerve he throws on us in the second half of Foil is phenomenal.
Also, please plug Mandatory Fun to the American Blog of Doomers, so
that he may finally get his long deserved number one selling album.
Originally, Bray Wyatt was booked to beat Jericho at BattleGround but Vince McMahon made the call on Sunday to switch the finish. During the booking meeting on Saturday, Wyatt was originally going over in the match.
