I really like the memes, and the cat is actually cute. But this is fucking stupid
We're closing in on the return of wrestling plumbers. Watch out Steen, you might be TL Hopper Jr. in another 6 months.
Well, he's still gotta be better than Dr. Ken, right? Right?Yeah, I got nothing.
Nothing like making sure your entire audience shits on a show live and is utterly embarassed to tell their friends they even watch it, just for a small payoff for shilling something 99% of the WWE audience wouldn't watch anyway.
"Alex From Target" To Host Wrestlemania, Vince Sr. Rises From Grave To Strangle Son
And here I thought we were past this 2009 bullshit. Meanwhile, over on the Network WCW lost the Monday Night War because they had special guests like Chucky and not a cutting edge product.
I'll be stunned if the cat actually appears live. Probably just a bunch of pretapes with the Zigglers and R-Truths of the world, complete with D-level sitcom gags.
well you know the saying, "those who revise history on DVD sets and on the network are doomed to repeat it."
Im actually thinking....you know.....maybe Jeff Jarrett's Mega Force Wrestling or whatever its called may not be that bad......anything but WWE or TNA. Im desperate
The shark has officially been jumped my friends.
Ugh. Grumpy cat was cute, but c'mon. Enough.
Hmmm ... I've seen worse things on RAW and I'll take my Aubrey Plaza where I can get it.
Lucha Underground is our best hope.
she won't be on it in person, just a voiceover
Vince probably saw his first Grumpy Cat meme last week.I'm guessing that the Chocolate Rain guy was already booked.
I don't even get that and I have a pretty extensive satellite package on Dish (pretty much everything but regional sports channel package and movie channels)
That's it I quit WWE.
Appearing on TNA next week.....Piano Cat!
Reason #..I lost track, of why RAW is a streaming pile of shit. Good god.
Only thing that could get me to watch this week would be Aubrey Plaza in a pillow fight match. But we don't get those anymore cause #PG
this is so over-the-top ridiculous it might actually be fun train wreck.
The more hear about that promotion the more curious I become. Is basically AAA in North America? It's what it sounds like.
More than I could possibly name here but if you read this blog you probably already all the beats by heart now.
I think it's something about Defenders Of The Earth or Captain Planet.
Scott did review a show a couple of weeks ago if you're interested
*Titan Towers*Vince: "Well, it's only logical that you host Raw. He's gonna.. He's gonna... HE'S GONNA HACK UP A HAIRBALL! HE'S GONNA HACK... AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!"
If this is a secret strategy to push people into buying the Network so they can watch ANYTHING ELSE it's brilliant.
I expect this to happen.
Pretty sure she's gonna fight Chuckie, and Robocop will make the save.
C'mon! All of us were rooting for Chucky to bump off Rick Steiner at Halloween Havoc, weren't we? Instead we got Buff to do it. Doggone it!
Can we get a Pun Dog run in?
^^ THIS. ^^
How do people actually continue owning stock in this company?
Surprisingly it's kinda relevant since the Lifetime Grumpy Cat movie is around the corner, and if she's voiced by Aubrey Plaza doing her April/Grumpy Cat Schreck...well that's better than Hologram Bray
You know, my kid was watching the live-action Underdog movie last night. Any chance Vince will be babysitting the grandkids while they're watching it and decide to book an angle and match between Underdog and Zack Ryder? Loser leaves WWE?
At least this stuff used to mostly be confined to Santino. Now. Dean will probably use the cat to make fun of Bray.
Vince and Stephanie have been getting REALLY desperate for mainstream attention over the last two years, even more so than usual.Once they had no shame about making a big announcement about inviting Michael Sam to RAW (which he cared so little about he didn't even respond), there's no turning back. Any D-List celebrity, even a D-List Animal Celebrity, is fair game.WWE might as well just go to a washed-up celebrity autograph signing convention and just ask people to guest host. I'm sure Tony Orlando has nothing better to do.
I read that and it sounds pretty good. It's interesting they got Mundo/Morrison and use him as a feature guy. Prince Puma/Ricochet is a pretty big name on the independent scene these days. Interesting stuff.
lol that's awesome.
Good, they can play TNA out
honestly, despite the garbage WWE has done (Rosie O'donnell comes to mind), that angle and the Bushwhackers with Jamison are still the two times I was most embarassed to be a wrestling fan.
Mega Force! Was an 80's movie! AVGN review it. It was GREAT and Jeff Jarrett needs to steal ALL OF IT! For his promotion.
WWE as timely as ever, I see.
This is the GO HOME SHOW to your PPV on the free Network month. At best, it will be as minimally time-consuming as Chrisley.
I can guarantee you it isn't mainstream attention (although that doesn't hurt) but rather a paycheck. With the network issues and lower revenues at live events, it doesn't hurt to show investors a new source of revenue. In this case with Chrisley knows best and Grumpy Cat they have shown a new, shameless source of revenue. Pay us some money, we will shill anything, even knowing our audience will absolutely crap on it.
I know Grumpy Cat is a female cat, but I still can't get over Grumpy Cat being voiced by a chick.
Then the grumpy cat folks better be paying big bucks considering how many fans will be changing their channels to the football game instead.
hey vince, this kinda shit is why people get embarrassed to publicly say they're fans of wrestling.
See you next week.
Chocolate Rain would have been a better guest host choice than this.
Why all the Grumpy cat hate? The little guy is cute.
The shark has officially jumped the other shark.
Just prepare yourself for a big overproduced soap opera.
I'd take Chucky over that cat as a host any day.
But does the cat fit on a wrestling product?
:facepalm:Never thought WWE could hit a new low, guess I was wrong.
Stephanie McMahon better fucking raise awareness for me, because all this cringeworthy shit they do is giving me cancer.
It's a female, actually. Oh, a fucking stupid idea for a host.
Of course, the cat can fit as a weekly character in fact and be some sort of meta character where the cat can call something stupid.
This is one of those moments where you wish you could post memes in the thread.Patrick Stewart is needed.
Patrick Stewart hosting Raw would be amazing.
Fight memes with memes. I like it.
I know it's a female cat, but everytime I look at the meme's I have a guy's voice in my head when reading it.
What time is TNA Impact on again?
Aperently it sounds like thishttp://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PrSPuBYm-CwI want to see that movie, for all the wrong reasons and with a bottle of rum
November 24th RAW to be hosted by empty bucket from ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
"Where can I get those dancing gerbils? What do you mean they're animated?!?"
Yeah the voice doesn't match the cat at all. I was actually looking forward to the movie when it was first announced, but the trailer made me less enthused to see it.
They already have a giant talking pussy on the air with Michael Cole. Might as well let another one host RAW.
Biggest single-day decline in Network Subscribers in the history of the product.
My friends and I have this tradition of watching the shittiest movies we can find.That trailer put it on the list.
I think WWE overall only cares about the paycheck, but Steph has definitely become the annoying 'be a part of every cause and let everyone know about it' type.
Totally wrong move, wasn't it... It just doesn't sit right at all.Surely everyone pictured it talking in a male voice, just generally sounding disgruntled.Now it's some bitchy sounding woman. Way to go.
December 1st RAW to be hosted by Mentos dropped in a bottle of Diet Coke.
The poor cat obviously has a tragic accident awaiting him where he will lose the use of four legs.
haha Just you wait til the voice is done by a bitchy sounding woman...You'll soon forget the cat was ever funny.
"WHAT?! It's for charity!"
That just made the news of the cat worth it.
I won't be happy until we get Dramatic Chipmunk
Is he gonna have a match with the the bucket full of urine and crap while trying to tell it to be a star?
I will be nice about it, and say you must be the single most "glass half full" person I've ever seen.Because this shit is stupid.
And it'll still have more charisma than the cat.
December 8th Raw to be hosted by a PS4 and XBOX One as they promote WWE 2K15 for the holiday shopping.
HAHA, this company blows
Well, at least the acting will be better than the Bellas'
You know he'd have a blast doing it, too.
Those consoles will be great sellers as well.
What bothers me is why does SHE have to be the face of it? Normal human Stephanie SUCKS.
"They say a cat always lands on its feet. Somewhere out there, some yahoo is sayin 'OH, THEY KNOW HOW TO FALL.' Give me a break! How do you learn to fall off a 3 foot sofa?"
What kind of antics will ensue when the king of goofy pranks Dean Ambrose meets his match in Grumpy Cat?
Oh Dean's gonna slime that cat
As God as my witness, that cat is broken in half!
Really. She does all these speeches on being a successful mother and caring about others, yet her kids are basically raised by day care. But, as long as rich people are rich, they generally don't give a shit.
We all know the real money is having the host be Inanimate Carbon Rod
If there was ever a week for Teddy Hart to debut...
I'm surprised they didn't have Mr. T eat balls when he got inducted into the HoF
That's... just... I... no.
Already heard the voice. It's not good. Doesn't match the cat to me.
They do have Tyson Kidd...
Damn it, all four? I was wanting to see the two legs, two wheels rolling contraption.
"WWE is so out of touch with popular culture.""Hosted by Grumpy Cat?! WTF"Can't win either way...
Was iJustine not available? WTF?
Are you guys nuts? They're the guys that do the shark jumping exhibition at Sea World every hour on the hour.
Awesome, that's my birthday
Grumpy Cat Christmas movie looks like a college freshman filmed it. The Miz's Christmas movie looks like It's A Wonderful Life compared to it.
This....won't end well for Sandow
Grumpy Cat's upcoming appearance on Raw gives me hope that we might one day get Overly Attached Girlfriend and the Numa Numa guy to appear. Winger could be the special guest musical act; it'd draw dozens.
TJ: CM Punk to write for Marvel comics...http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=56972
Ha...the fool..creating content for one of the hottest properties on the planet....instead of performing with a internet cat.
I'm pretty sure Vince meant "angry cunt" in reference to getting Courtney Love to guest host..I'm sure Grumpy Cat will make him laugh, however.
That might be the most random post-wrestling career I've seen yet.
Hey this is as up to date as Vince has been in years
If they don't get Winger, they're headed for a heartbreak.
Hey, the Muppets guest hosting Raw was harmless fun. Who knows. I hope that Grumpy Cat just spews out a bunch of regular smark complaints.
http://i.imgur.com/eLyUtIb.gif I'd watch the Cat Wrestling Federation
I hope this episode gives Jerry Lawler another reason to make a Wimpbusters reference. That was the real highlight of the Muppets Raw.
Reminds me of the joke in the Rifftrax of The Last Slumber Party during a particularly horrible hair metal track playing in the background during a scene: "This is the band you get when Winger won't return your calls".
The dueling EXCUSE MEEE's was the best part for me.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this will be one of those Raws that holds up really well in ten years time.
It should make for some cute gifs at the very least.
Post of the day bravo
If I was Sandow or Heath Slater, I'd claim I caught some kind of illness while in the UK.
Do they not have a single person on staff with the balls to say 'ya know Steph, I don't think this is a very good idea. You cats can't talk, right? And the SPCA will be all over us if she gets RKO'd'
An RKO would be good, but Orton really should bring back the punt kick for this one.
They at least need to use the Funaki overdub. Grumpy cat, do you hate this?INDEED!
Honestly, this will probably be better than any other guest hosts they've had this year.
You know this wasn't her idea, yes?
From the comments on the peoples pet article:"Wrestling fans have 0 interest in this. People have already resented the fact in droves."followed by the astute:"Wrestling fans have zero interest in anything. Even wrestling. They'll complain about anything."
I'm so allergic to cats I'm going to have to watch the Cavs game instead to avoid an asthma attack.
That's so incredibly not the point.
Leave it to WWE to hop on a meme a smooth 18 months after people stopped caring.
Okay, this works if, since she is an Internet meme, GC somehow appears with smarky captions around her. And now I am envisioning '80s WWF having the MTM cat appear on say Superstars. She could have appeared in her circle after every segment, dressed as one of the wrestlers as she meows (like they made the cat a cop in Hill Street Blues, a surgeon in St. Elsewhere, etc. etc.)
On the other hand, if you squint, GC looks like Greg Valentine returning to the company.
So sad yet so true
What . The.. Fuck.. That looks like a shitty movie even by Lifetime Network standards.
Gunther, good work. When I was reading thru these, I was wondering who else is as old as me (No offense if you are not old) to remember Mr T Ate My Balls.Good work Sir. You should join my Webring!
Whoopi Goldberg would have been a better choice. Sounds like a man, but technically is a woman.
Disqus has disabled my ability to upvote, since I used it so much in this thread. Seriously, good work team.Serious lols were had, as you kids say.
Mega Force was one of my favorite cheesy 80's movies, watched it twice as a kid. It doesn't hold up well..
This is a travesty.Sockington deserves to be the first cat to host RAW.
I nominate Grumpy Cat for the animal wing of the WWE HOF!
I nominate him for an immediate entry into Wrestlcrap,
I was pretty surprised to find out Whoopi Goldberg was an actual naturally born woman She looks like a Ninja Turtle.
My guess is they tell grumpy cat about the network for just 9.99 and then they CG a smile on him.
On one hand it has aged terribly. On the OTHER hand watching what was "cutting edge" in the 80's become ghastly outdated now is pretty funny. The flying motor cycle and the lead guys' TIGHT outfit.
yeah but there is about to be a cat hosting raw so they have a legit reason lol I get the point maybe if the product wasn't so bad people would care
what for all time disasters?
Muppets can talk and should be entertaining they're having a freaking cat host the show
Yeah its hard for me to get to too mad at this after they finished the last ppv with a ghost run in.
A cat hosting Raw that's not Garfield? But he hates Mondays! And he'd be on MONDAY Night Raw! That shit would write itself!
That... That was the entire premise of your post.
Wish you were curled up sleeping instead of having to be up late on this dumb show?INDEED!
Will only watch if Grumpy Cat takes a chair shot and blades
I'm against cruelty to animals. However, I would pay to see someone drown that fucking cat.
Is this the point at which they have finally jumped the shark?
["rod" = not pg joke]
The Canadian Steener.
If WWE want to have Internet memes host their shows, I personally think they should get a hold of Giorgio Tsoukalos.
Where the Hell is Dusty the Fat Bitter Cat when we need him?
Good point. I was wondering who would have to deal with this since Santino was gone.
