Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O'Doomers!

Been a hell of a weekend and a hell of a day. I swear it feels like my phone doesn't stop ringing for a three-hour span on Monday and naturally while answering calls and metaphorically putting out fires I don't get any of my stuff done.

Anyway we're approaching the dog days of the wrestling calendar as once Brock dispatches of Cena we'll go through a 3-4 month period of universal disinterest until the Royal Rumble wakes us up. Usually the Big Show is headlining cards during this dead period and thankfully that doesn't appear to be changing in 2014.

Tonight of TV:

RAW
Monday Night Football Doubleheader
Men's U.S. Open Final is on but not very competitive
Steve Buscemi is hosting an FDNY documentary on HBO.

There's other stuff too I'm sure.

Keep it clean folks!

  2. It would make sense for Brock to dispatch Cena...but as you know, the WWE could just as easily fall back upon LOLCENAWINS

    ReplyDelete
  3. I'll allow it if Seth cashes in right afterwards.

    ReplyDelete
  4. How does taking Ray Rice's ability to support his family help anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  5. He'll just have to find another job. Lots of people lose their jobs daily and no one gives a shit about them or their families or their bills.

    So...really..fuck him and his stupid ass wife.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Stupid ass wife?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Lots of people don't have their issues publicized throughout the world either.

    ReplyDelete
  8. For putting up and going along with the charade.

    ReplyDelete
  9. So this will be the last Monday till early October that I can see a Raw live. And although I haven't considered the last few shows as horrible as most it's definitely been lackluster at best so I'm fine with only being able to watch Main Event and NXT for now. And the PPVs of course since I've committed to the Network.

    ReplyDelete
  10. She married him shortly after he went Mike Tyson on her. Yes fuck her.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Did she press charges?

    If not, then it's a domestic issue.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm fine with the Rice move, nuts that it took a video to make things really happen though

    ReplyDelete
  13. No one forced him to be a professional athlete. Part of the job.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Didn't she attack him first?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't think one has to do with the other, really.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Would TMZ release video of what you're doing in an elevator?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Self defense is a crime?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Raw sounds fucking terrible tonight so I think I'm just going to put some extra hours in at work.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well, it depends on what I was doing, I guess. To be serious, though, as Princess said, it goes with the territory.

    ReplyDelete
  20. What's he defending himself from exactly? A woman he supposedly loved. He wasn't defending himself. He knocked the fuck out.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Eh, going to hang with the Giants till they're down 20 then check out how off the rails Under the Dome's gotten...I'm trying to stay Raw-less til Ambrose is back at the earliest

    ReplyDelete
  22. Punching a woman in the face twice and knocking her out cold is not self defense.

    ReplyDelete
  23. But...but...Jerry Springer, man. Jerry Springer!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Official Ratings Prediction Thread


    So, carrying over from yesterday's thread, Raw is going to get obliterated tonight by football. So what do you think the final rating will be? We're looking for three digits here, everyone.


    I'll kick it off by saying 2.32. Because I'm feeling particularly outlandish.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Christ, forgot that was tonight, maybe I'll piss on my TV to make sure I don't flip over to it by mistake

    ReplyDelete
  26. In other words, it wasn't about punishing Rice, it was about the NFL saving face.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Which the victim forgave. What other person's business is it?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Eh, NFL office is a bunch of jagoffs. IF they could have gotten away with it before they would have, but the sheep of the world needed the video.

    ReplyDelete
  29. You cannot possibly be this dense...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Leading into RAW, it's Random Little Cared Sports Threadjack time!

    - http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/early-lead/wp/2014/09/03/jurgen-klinsmanns-2018-fifa-world-cup-goal-is-to-get-team-usa-to-the-semifinals/

    Quite the optimist, Jurgen is.

    - Euro 2016 qualifiers are underway, Spain and Russia look great against the minnows, England looks good against Switzerland, and San Marino, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein are relevant. At least as practice for the real teams. Oh, and there's Gibraltar: http://deadspin.com/gibraltar-xis-occupations-today-against-poland-pic-t-1631687717



    - Anyone give a shit about the PGA "playoffs"? No? Good, neither do I. Majors, Ryder Cup, or fuck off.


    - Anyone give a shit about the NASCAR "playoffs"? No? Good.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Don't athletes generally make more in one game than most people make in a lifetime?


    I'm sure his family will be just fine.

    ReplyDelete
  32. What's the actual number been hovering at? 3-ish? I doubt it dips much below 2.7 as I don't really trust the Neilsen accuracy

    ReplyDelete
  33. Why doesn't the WWE just drive the DX tank to the MNF game? Hey, it worked before.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ndamukong Suk might stomp X-Pac's face into the ground?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I wrote about why I can't bring myself to care about England in the multi sport thread over on the forum. I can't be bothered to type it all out again, but it's there if you want to read it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Chris Berman isn't doing either of the games is he?

    ReplyDelete
  37. They could send Brock and Heyman to go all Bane in Dark Knight Rises.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Always thought it would have been funny if Eric called their bluff and let them in. DX awkwardly talking in the back with their friends, people grumbling but not really doing anything, corporate types nervously looking on from the shadows

    ReplyDelete
  39. there was no reason NOT to let them in. Bischoff messed up on that one.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Not sure, Gruden's team's on the first game so he can verbally blow every QB he sees

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm staying even later.

    ReplyDelete
  42. He went WAY beyond self-defense and you know it. Seriously, you can't justify attacking someone after they've been neutralized.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I didn't really watch last week, and my grandmother in law is staying with us for a couple of days so won't likely watch this week either.
    If the Bella thing keeps up then I may just return to hiatus. There is no excuse for Bellas.

    ReplyDelete
  44. That would end the NFL!

    ReplyDelete
  45. If I hit Princess in the face, she has the justifiable right to send me to the slammer for a very long time.

    If she chooses not to, what right do you, a person unaffected by my actions, have to punish me?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Back back back back back back back back back back back..... Gone!
    Oh wait, the HR Derby is over.

    ReplyDelete
  47. The NFL *is* affected by his actions. They are his employer. They have every right to shitcan him.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Devil's advocating? Or just ignoring the responsibility of those in the public eye to act the least bit humane to maintain their chosen one lifestyles?

    ReplyDelete
  49. How rough is it to follow the Live Thread tonight? My Ipad generally screws up like 4 times during it!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Fannnnnnnntastic coverage there

    ReplyDelete
  51. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 8, 2014 at 5:16 PM

    I haven't watched Raw in two weeks. But there's no Yankees game on and I'm about three weeks away from killing cable totally. Might as well join in tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  52. And my original question: how does this help the NFL, or the victim?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Adam "Colorado" CurrySeptember 8, 2014 at 5:16 PM

    He's doing the late game, thereby making it un-watchable.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Adam "Colorado" CurrySeptember 8, 2014 at 5:17 PM

    The Nascar playoff system sucks.

    ReplyDelete
  55. FUCK YEAH!! MON NIGHT!!!! BoD!!! RAW!!! FUCKING JUNK FOOD SPECTACULAR FOR HOSS!!! WHICH MEANS THAT FOR DINNER, I'M HAVING...


    ...a salad.


    and I mean romaine lettuce, fat free italian dressing, grape tomatoes, and just a bit of cheese.


    Fuck.


    #toofuckingfat


    PS - I stop stop at DQ on my way home from work. Tell no one.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'll never tell anybody.

    ReplyDelete
  57. You can still shake down Abeyance though correct?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Abey doesn't get shook down much, and will usually get at least one pass, cause I likes him.


    #HossStraight

    ReplyDelete
  59. Ugh.

    You see the GP yesterday?

    ReplyDelete
  60. The NFL is doing damage control. They pretty much had to fire the employee.

    The victim? From the looks of it, she doesn't want help right now. Lead a horse to water and all that.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 8, 2014 at 5:20 PM

    I give you my word as a Spaniard.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Is Reigns/Orton the main event? I think I'd take a Bella interview over that......just playing

    ReplyDelete
  63. Frigging Coughlin is loyal to a fault. Have had the lousiest secondary for years but won't do a damn thing with their ancient secondary coach

    ReplyDelete
  64. Maybe it will lead to a decent match or at least some plot development. But probably not. My hopes of Randy turning face again are pretty meh.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Megatron with a 67 yard td. I'm going against him :*(

    ReplyDelete
  66. He might break the yardage record tonight

    ReplyDelete
  67. Pre-Show Discussion Topic


    Gene Simmons made headlines by declaring that rock music is dead. But what songs/artists from today prove him wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  68. It's a tough fade.

    ReplyDelete
  69. The way the Giants D is set up....

    ReplyDelete
  70. Goddammit...it really irritates me that they replaced the music Steamboat used, particularly at WM3.


    #CheapFuckers

    #toomanyfuckinghashtags

    ReplyDelete
  71. Well first of all, I don't think Gene Simmons is the first one that should be making that comment.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Keystone cops, there will be a play or two tonight where they just stand and point at each other because they have no clue who should be where

    ReplyDelete
  73. If this show starts with AJ and a guy with a CM Punk mask walking into an elevator.....

    ReplyDelete
  74. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 8, 2014 at 5:23 PM

    They should've made a deal for that song.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Of course there's no excusing his actions. But the only person directly affected by it wants to let it go. This isn't like Michael Vick abusing dogs that have no say in the matter.

    His life should be in her hands. Nobody else's.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 8, 2014 at 5:24 PM

    Too bad Fandango and Summer broke up...

    ReplyDelete
  77. He may be a duechelord, but he has sold millions of rock albums, and he's right.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Sirius, right??

    ReplyDelete
  79. RAW is in Baltimore tonight. Does Sandow wear a Rice jersey?

    ReplyDelete
  80. #BecauseVinceFindsItFunny

    ReplyDelete
  81. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 8, 2014 at 5:25 PM

    No, because investors would likely shit a brick. #publiccompany

    ReplyDelete
  82. If you're arrested, you usually get fired. A lot of places don't want anything to do with you. The rules should apply to him, too.

    ReplyDelete
  83. On the plus side, Giants are going to end up saving a lot of money on JPP

    ReplyDelete
  84. Meh, if the stock moved on storylines, the company would be worth zero Kelvin right now.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I have a Module (A short answer paper, a short quiz, a short blog entry, and a small paper) due tomorrow for one of my Health Care classes. I think I'm just going to do it all tomorrow after I get back from the gym at 7 am.


    I'm just debating if I should just do it all tonight during RAW and be done with it.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Wow you're such a negative person.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 8, 2014 at 5:28 PM

    We're not talking about storylines. We're talking about a random incident that would legitimately piss people off. Notice again that they put the angry black faction on the back burner after Ferguson.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Get it done with. (recovering procrastination junky)

    ReplyDelete
  89. No he's mizdow

    ReplyDelete
  90. Yeah. And the Hassad Angle died quick too.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Wow, this was such a negative post.

    ReplyDelete
  92. And those two are instances where the angle began or was filmed ahead of time. This? They wouldn't dare.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Dude toured with def leopard this summer. No wonder he thinks that.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Wow, this was such a negative reply to his negative post.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Way to be negative nancy.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 8, 2014 at 5:32 PM

    After the London bombing? It kinda did.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Alex Riley is a baller.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Is anyone getting Destiny? I ended up with a copy and am...poor at maintaining online relationships but am kinda curious to check this thing out.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Wow you're such a waste of oxygen. One step forward, ten steps back.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Raw: Don't care, there's football and Nats vs Braves.
    (I'll still watch and complain about it anyway.)

    ReplyDelete
  101. Yup. 360. Won't get on till tomorrow evening.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Cousins played the beta, they liked but weren't wowed, ending up cancelling their pre-order

    ReplyDelete
  103. Fuck no. Generic FPS 905390532 holds no interest for me.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 8, 2014 at 5:33 PM

    3/4 of my staff are all about picking that up tomorrow. Unfortunately, it's primary night in New York and they all have to work. Pobrecitos.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Speaking of wasting oxygen! Hello kbjsone!

    ReplyDelete
  106. So according to last night's Total Divas and the preview video they showed for the new season: Rosa Mendes is a nudist, Eva Marie wants her husband to change religions for a day to get married in a Catholic church, Natalya vs. Summer Rae Part II: Freeway Boogaloo, Nikki probably looked like a heroin junkie when Cena found her egg freezing drugs, the Funkadactyls want to break up for some odd reason, Brie watched something get inserted into her sisters muff and kept staring, Daniel Bryan and Brie have become poor and Nikki wants them to borrow money from her and Cena...

    ReplyDelete
  107. Aren't you the guy that defended Ray Rice?

    ReplyDelete
  108. AWESOME coverage

    ReplyDelete
  109. What little inside knowledge of that show tells me that I guess there was a HUGE fucking blow up between the EP of that show and the folks at WWE to the point where they barely talk now.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Betting Johnson gets more catches than Giants first downs tonight

    ReplyDelete
  111. I just want to see Fandango run the D.E.N.N.I.S. System on someone already.

    ReplyDelete
  112. No. Ray Rice should go to jail if his wife wishes him to.

    If anything, I am defending his wife.

    ReplyDelete
  113. What is worse:


    Princess' thoughts on domestic violence or the Giants secondary?

    ReplyDelete
  114. You know, the last time Jerry was on Raw, didn't they say one of the twins was male? Please don't revisit that.

    ReplyDelete
  115. It would end the fall season Monday Night Wars. Victory would be theirs! Long live WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  116. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomerySeptember 8, 2014 at 5:37 PM

    Mike Ditka focused right on Rice "destroying his earning power".

    VINTAGE DITKA

    ReplyDelete
  117. Giants secondary, even a battered woman might hit back now and then

    ReplyDelete
  118. Ditka is an awesome heel

    ReplyDelete
  119. Any man who has TWO Billy Joes playing quarterback is no good.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Too busy with Resident Evil 4, Final Fantasy X, and the Mega Man games.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Positive about Rosa Mendes: she'll do anything for the business.

    Negative: she's a bad wrestler by WWE standards.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Damn memory, Tolliver and???

    ReplyDelete
  123. Tolliver and Hobert.

    /very sad Who Dat after yesterday

    ReplyDelete
  124. I'm watching the game on my fiancee's laptop. What a country!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Adam "Colorado" CurrySeptember 8, 2014 at 5:41 PM

    Yep. Rosberg had it until he missed that first chicane.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I was thinking, "Oh, is he gonna take hell for that one," when I heard him say it.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Last week - it can't be as bad as last week! This week - it CAN'T be as bad as last week...?

    ReplyDelete
  128. When he got fired, they made him do a perp walk out. Who Dat Who Dat

    ReplyDelete
  129. Orton/Reigns and Jericho/Wyatt ought to at least be good, long matches. That's a step up. And hopefully the Bella garbage will be one segment.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Well, eventually we'll be correct,

    ReplyDelete
  131. Yeah I'm on Nino Kuni and Madden still so that's another concern that i'll get into it after everyone else is like level 4003

    ReplyDelete
  132. Did anyone watch 'Utopia' last night? I just caught the scene of the redneck and the black dude having an argument. Who could have seen that coming?

    ReplyDelete
  133. I just figured FOX already cancelled it.

    ReplyDelete
  134. intestinal fortitudeSeptember 8, 2014 at 5:43 PM

    The Giants secondary is doing more to boost the Raw ratings tonight than the writing staff ever could

    ReplyDelete
  135. We will just work under that assumption

    ReplyDelete
  136. Is the game on already? Why the early kickoff?

    ReplyDelete
  137. Black Keys, Bob Mould (middle aged, but rocking hard), Arcade Fire

    ReplyDelete
  138. I kinda feel bad for OC McAdoo. This whole team's going down in flames

    ReplyDelete
  139. Presumably, the black guy was dancing, and the redneck had a slop bucket.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Opening monday double header

    ReplyDelete
  141. Adam "Colorado" CurrySeptember 8, 2014 at 5:46 PM

    There's 2 games tonight, other one starts at 10:30.

    ReplyDelete
  142. WWE is producing this? Now it all makes sense.

    ReplyDelete
  143. intestinal fortitudeSeptember 8, 2014 at 5:46 PM

    Doubleheader tonight for the 1st week - 7 and 10:15

    ReplyDelete
  144. Nah. I'm just applying WWE canon to the rest of TV. Because why not?

    ReplyDelete
  145. I said this the last time it came up, he was probably unaware it was even happening. At the time I heard that the "invasion" was very small and brief

    ReplyDelete
  146. what's the second game? Chargers and someone right? Don't see myself staying up past 11

    ReplyDelete
  147. I know but if I told you they did, you would totally believe it.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Chargers and ARizona, and I need Fitzy and Palmer to get me some POINTS

    You're incredibly stupid

    ReplyDelete
  150. I'll pass on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  151. The black dust stuff they have in modern artificial turf fields always freaks me out.

    ReplyDelete
  152. I'm here. Second row. Look for Whoopi Goldberg's head and an extremely confused stepsister. Dude to my left won't shut up, is throwing a rubber chicken around sexually harrasing Layla

    ReplyDelete
  153. agreed. And I'm not even watching the game.

    ReplyDelete
  154. #dirtysouthraised

    ReplyDelete
  155. The Texans turf has already claimed the career of their 1st round pick.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Career? He hasn't even been ruled out for the season. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Would anyone be really offended if Ray Rice guest hosted Raw? And are we pretending the Michael Sam stuff never happened?

    ReplyDelete
  158. Yeah. Good result for the championship though, Hamilton probably would have started to crumble pscycologically if he hadn't got a win this weekend. Also, Ricciardo on Vettel might have been the pass of the season.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Only if he smacks another bitch. And even then, it depends on which bitch.


    Yes.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 8, 2014 at 5:51 PM

    There is zero upside to something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  161. He never could stay healthy. they saying 6 weeks but they will pressure him to be back in 3 which will just make it worse

    ReplyDelete
  162. He needs to give us HIS side of the story! That's what Michael Cole said, anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Ray Rice should have just Jay Z'd that shit and just took it.


    He'd be a hero in the media.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Biff Kensington IIISeptember 8, 2014 at 5:52 PM

    Oh, God... that soul-crushing realization that, for the sake of writing somewhere, you will agree to anything, INCLUDING reviewing Raw... Oh, God, what have I done?

    Shameless self-promotion: Preview article for tonight in the forums, would appreciate feedback. Thank you so much to all who have already critiqued!

    http://rspwfaq.boards.net/thread/159/insider-preview-article-tonights-show

    ReplyDelete
  165. Hoss approves.


    Or says it sucks.

    Pick one. I ain't reading it.


    :-)

    ReplyDelete
  166. Jerry Springer and the Bellas having a dedicated segment says otherwise.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Super Cereal

    ReplyDelete
  168. Steph comes out, goes on a 10 minute rant about the NFL and beating women that bores the audience to tears.

    And then the Dudleys put her through a table. #Bookingisfun

    ReplyDelete
  169. They'd have to move a dump truck full of money to my front door to get me to review Raw.


    And I say that as someone who's paid to review Bachelor In Paradise.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Adam "Colorado" CurrySeptember 8, 2014 at 5:53 PM

    Ricciardo is my early pick for the 2015 champ.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Or she'll compare the persecution of Ray Rice to 9/11.

    ReplyDelete
  172. :: starts looking around for a dumptruck and an assload of pennies ::

    ReplyDelete
  173. Steph somehow implies Daniel Bryan beats up Brie, because they haven't done enough to make him look like a loser or a jerk in his absence.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Wasn't really what I was asking but I feel ya

    ReplyDelete
  175. It might be a bit early to say career, but turf still mostly sucks. They should probably try and restrict it unless it's somewhere where grass just can't be maintained like Buffalo or New England.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Oh, god. Please. PLEASE. PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN.


    If it does, i will never eat ice cream again.


    #BargainingWithTheAlmighty

    ReplyDelete
  177. What's worse is, they probably got this idea two hours ago and are still rewriting the show, as we speak.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Very good stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Or that it was not Ray Rice in the video, but actually Brie Bella. #GrowingUpBella

    ReplyDelete
  180. Also, there are forums here?

    ReplyDelete
  181. Yeah, but the Bachelor shows aren't 3 hours with an overrun.
