Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O'Doomers!

I'm doing this early because it's date night, which turned into double date night and we're going to the Leafs-Lightning hockey game. How romantic!

Anyway it's the final RAW of 2014. I don't know if these are special or not, I don't remember any of them. So use the board to bitch about Roman Reigns' push and how much he sucks and you hate him, etc. etc.

I want to do something leading up to the Rumble but we went through all the previous Rumbles last year. So any suggestions would be appreciated.

As for TV tonight beyond RAW

Three Bowl Games (Liberty Bowl should be over by the time this is posted but the Clemson-Oklahoma and Arkansas-Texas game sound like fun, non-offensive matchups)

Six NBA Games (Houston-Washington looks like the best)

A shit-ton of NHL Games, I think 11 (Go Lightning!)

As for some non-sports those of you that like old, classic movies might want to check out Houseboat on Turner Classic tonight. The plot is worthless but it's Sophia Loren in the late 50s and she was very beautiful.

  8. I had a gig shooting for them earlier this year in NYC. Was never really a fan of their music, but they gave a great show.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Odds that Bryan is just confronting Brie about her actions recently?

  11. I really Nashed my way through work today.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Haven't watched much Raw this year, but if Bryan were to retire I'd happily not watch any of the main shows for a good while. Can't help feel it would have a consequence with the live crowds too.

    ReplyDelete

  15. You beat your kid through work?

    ReplyDelete
  16. The one tiny silver lining (sort of) is that there's a natural replacement for him just waiting in NXT for the call to head to the main roster.


    In the same way Punk's meltdown resulted in a good spot for Bryan, Bryan retiring could open a door for Sami Zayn.


    That said, I would love to see the two of them in the main event in a couple of years time! ;)

  18. So Bryan is retiring huh?

  25. I can see how it would be... this lady works in the benefits department of an office and had the kid filing and shit.

  41. Neither do I. Just look it up and print it out if there's a need.

    ReplyDelete
  48. One more person asks me "So when are you guys getting pregnant?" and I'll throw a Fitta/Caliber/Meekin/Worst/Gunther/Elvy/Chan level meltdown.

    ReplyDelete
  49. So how is the nursery coming along?

    ReplyDelete
  50. ...yeah? That's how it goes.


    So when do you think it'll happen? A year? 2? 3?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Predictions if Daniel Bryan retires tonight:


    1) Nikki Bella (whichever one is his wife) will turn face
    2) Roman Reigns will be one of the main people in the ring to greet him.
    3) HHH will be the last person to say goodbye and get all the attention :ahem: I mean honor Bryan. (See Edge's Raw goodbye)
    4) Bryan will also endorse Christian to be a main eventer (continuing the tradition of superstars futilely pushing Christian when they leave).

    ReplyDelete
  52. Getting high and looking forward to a night with all my most cherished posters in what will surely be a great Raw thread!

    Who's with me?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Eh, while they were doing a "let's be solemn and pretend Vince is really dead" whole roster thing, London was standing with a goofy grin on his face, was pretty much signing his firing papers with it

    ReplyDelete
  54. I doubt Bryan will retire fully, he is far too over not to be made into some kind of on screen character if he can't wrestle.
    As he ever tried announcing?

    ReplyDelete
  55. You should have added "and NAME OF POSTER" after "most favorite posters" that joke never gets old.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Can you imagine waiting 2 years for THAT cliffhanger?

    Some of the the stuff they do in S3:E1 was taken directly from real life with the conspiracy theories and stuff, you'll see what I mean when you get there.

    ReplyDelete
  57. 5) Cena will be present to leech some heat.

    ReplyDelete
  58. change christian to his tag team buddy kane

    ReplyDelete
  59. I am DYING to watch the next episode but my brother fell asleep watching this one so we have to rewatch the whole thing. Normally I wouldn't mind because it's an amazing episode but God I want to see what happens! I don't understand any of it!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Bryan pulls off a mask and reveals himself to be CM Punk all along.

  62. Sure, I'm in. You're totally in my top 3 posters.. Except that I don't really do that.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Brie is with Bryan, Nikki with Cena.

  64. Lol Chokelahoma is getting destroyed

    ReplyDelete
  65. But then they'd think I didn't like them or something, I don't want that. I want this to be a welcoming safe environment.

    ReplyDelete
  66. He'll be as successful as Punk!

    ReplyDelete
  67. when I was with my ex-wife, we started hearing about it as soon as we got back from the honeymoon

    ReplyDelete
  72. Chokelahoma... I see what you did there.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Did Bone Thugs n Harmony have any hits other than Crossroads?


    I was always reasonably into rap during that time frame, but I don't know thing one about them.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I can't wait because I have about 2,800 words worth of questions!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I'd like to think endorsing Christian when they leave is in every WWE contract.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'm surprised oklahoma hasn't gotten rid of stoops yet. They haven't won a national title like in a decade.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Notorious Thugs featuring Biggie is pretty sweet

  79. I was thinking about that... not knocking up your GF something else... are there any other grandkids on either side? Is that why there is so much pressure?

    ReplyDelete
  80. Did Bryan ever end up getting TJ surgery? Can't remember now and he didn't look like he was recovering from surgery when he was guest gm'ing

    ReplyDelete
  81. Wasn't the last one when they beat FSU in 2001?

    ReplyDelete
  82. Dude think about it, always being negative isn't really going to make anything better. If we kept a sunny disposition maybe things would pick up!

    ReplyDelete
  83. yeah i think 13-2 if i remember correctly on the score

    ReplyDelete
  84. You know who should get TJ surgery? Jobber. That boy be TJ'ing all day.

    Actually, we don't get any questions about it from our parents. Her sister has three kids of her own and a stepdaughter. And my sister has two kids, too. It's mostly aunts, uncles and cousins.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Chipmunk, squirrel, (shrug). Close enough for government work.

    ReplyDelete
  93. They should have RVD come out yelling "I'm going to KFC" before Punk's first fight

    ReplyDelete
  94. Did Marv get repackaged into Brand New Marv or something?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Exactly... they are all just glorified rats.

  96. First of Tha Month, Foe Da Love of $

    ReplyDelete
  97. In other words you're Bruce Wayne and they keep chanting "THIS IS AWESOME, AWESOME. THIS IS AWESOME, AWESOME." hoping you join them in the pit for eternity.

    ReplyDelete
  98. 1st of the month was huge here, I think I heard that one before Crossroads but don't remember. Look into my eyes was big also and Notorious also.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Really? Nothing for this? Tough thread.

    ReplyDelete
  100. A guy isn't allowed to be pleasant here? This is what I'm talking about. Negativity feeds on itself you see.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Really? Why do you hate freedom? Commie!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I'll be missing Raw tonight so the spoiler doesn't bother me. Is Bryan really retiring or is this an angle?

    ReplyDelete
  105. He didn't get it.


    Come to think of it, he was wearing a long sleeve shirt...

    ReplyDelete
  106. I almost want Bryan to retire for reals, only for Bad News Barrett to come out and give him some bad news.


    Then followed by Bo Dallas telling Bryan to BOLIEVE!

    ReplyDelete
  107. No idea yet. He's just announced an announcement, could be an angle, retirement, return, anything.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I'd bet 90% of everything I own this becomes about the Bella's.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Bryan can probably afford to retire because of the massive revenue brought in by #BRIEMODE merchandise.

    ReplyDelete
  110. 1st of tha month & Thuggish Ruggish BONE were the only ones that got a lot of airplay over here. They did that terrible tune with Phil Collins years later but I don't know if it was a hit or not (I think not).

    ReplyDelete
  111. Apparently, Savage was the cream of the crop.

    ReplyDelete
  112. The joke doesn't wok considering the huge amount of merch both he and Brie actually sell.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Maaaaarv!


    How did the proposal go, sir?

    ReplyDelete
  114. Who said it was a joke? #BRIEMODE 4 LIFE

    ReplyDelete
  115. Maybe Dustin can get his win back against El Torito tonight

    ReplyDelete
  116. I just played that, and it's not bad, but I don't recall it.


    Interestingly it gets my 2 year old's seal of approval big time.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 29, 2014 at 5:02 PM

    So we're all falling on the side of Bryan retiring? No secret Rumble entrance?

    ReplyDelete
  118. She said NOT IN MY HOUSE and spiked the ring on the carpet.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I have no idea, I just wanted to talk about #BRIEMODE

    ReplyDelete
  120. It could be a Rumble return. or something completely different.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Gentlemen... I am once again unable to do Raw. This time, I have come down with a medical emergency over the past weekend I'm still sleeping off. Enjoy your PG-free vacation.

    I'll make up for it later this week if Scott allows me to. Got a Retro or two I can do.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Then don't get married! HEY-O!

    ReplyDelete
  123. as evidenced by that promo. Or, are we talking ascending to heaven?

    ReplyDelete
  124. Nah everything went great other than the small heart murmur I developed between the words "will you" and "marry"

    Outside of that it went perfectly.

    ReplyDelete
  125. If Daniel Bryan does retire tonight and leaves the company. Has he done enough to make the Hall Of fame?

    ReplyDelete
  126. He'll never eat a pig because a pig is a cop

    ReplyDelete
  127. If Bryan is retiring, then in kayfabe, Kane ended his career. Which means that either Reigns or Cena will have to avenge him in a singles feud.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 29, 2014 at 5:04 PM

    Mawiage! Mawiage is what bwings us togehthah today!

    ReplyDelete
  129. Bryan: "MY announcement is... you can sign up for the WWE Network for only $9.99!"

    ReplyDelete
  130. Of a fake sport chosen at the whims of a lunatic? Sure

    ReplyDelete
  131. It happened but it was Christmas so we can safely ignore it. Like I'm ignoring Fandango beating Swagger

    ReplyDelete
  132. Hoss, I understand when something like this happens we tend to black it out from our memories...

    ReplyDelete
  133. If it was a real thing, no.


    But it's all a publicity/gimmick thing, so probably yes.

    ReplyDelete
  134. No "apparently" to it....at least in my mind. Savage was friggin' great at damn near every aspect of the business.

    ReplyDelete
  135. What are you talking about? He was snapping into Slim Jims all the time. There's gotta be pork in there.


    No idea what you're on about.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I was referring to a promo that just aired on the network where he kept producing little containers of creamer.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Everyone's all Daniel this and Bryan that but you know what no one in this whole thread has mentioned? Their personal relationship with their lord and savior.

    Y'know sometimes we let the little things get in the way of the stuff that's really important.



    That's a real pity.

    ReplyDelete
  138. A fired up Bobby Eaton should come out


    (if he ever got out of the hospital and it was 25 years ago)

    ReplyDelete
  139. I'm not sure there's any actual meat in Slim Jims.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I thought they were married? Cena did buy her that wonder set of tits, after all. And you really don't shell out for a gal to get a titjob if you're not in it for the long haul.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I think Eaton has to wheel an ECG machine around with him wherever he goes these days.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 29, 2014 at 5:08 PM

    Ignoring what Marv just posted, if Bryan enters the Rumble, does Reigns get shit on for winning? I, personally, think a Bryan-Lesnar match is much more interesting than a Reigns-Lesnar match.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Bullshit.


    I am constantly thankful to the inventor of ice cream.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Cena and/or Huntor the Heat Vampire.

    ReplyDelete
  145. But it hadn't been mentioned yet that's all.

    This blog could use some priority shuffling in a very real and positive way.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonDecember 29, 2014 at 5:09 PM

    If this company lets Bryan wrestle in the Royal Rumble, they're fucking retarded. Unless the plan is to let Bryan win and challenge Brock at WrestleMania, at which point Hell freezes over. Thus, I fully expect Bryan to enter the Rumble and Reigns to win it still.


    Also, poor Neville; he's got no chance to succeed on the main roster. They reported earlier that his 'Mighty Mouse' character is akin to Crash Holly of sorts. He's already lost.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Maybe Bryan will admit he's been living a lie this whole time, and whip off his prosthetic mask to reveal....CM Punk! Who will then retire again.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Pretty sure my enthusiasm for ice cream is mentioned regularly.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Take your time, please.

    ReplyDelete
  150. 'Meat product' and 'cheese product' both have a special place reserved for them in Hell.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Has anyone other than Rollins mentioned Sting?

    ReplyDelete
  152. *The Vigilante Sting

    ReplyDelete
  153. How can you write off Neville's character all ready when we haven't even seen a viginette for it yet.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonDecember 29, 2014 at 5:11 PM

    He easily passes the Koko B. Ware test, though. A U.S. title reign, a lengthy tag team championship reign, Money in the Bank winner, World Heavyweight Champion, 2x WWE Champion, WWE World Heavyweight Champion, clean wins over John Cena, Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista? That's a Hall of Fame career, even in its relative brevity.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Reigns is getting shit on regardless me thinks. They can't be stupid enough to think throwing Bryan into that mix would be a positive

    ReplyDelete
  156. Once he meets JFK, Jr. he will no longer be a vigilante.

    Two words: Crash Holly.

    ReplyDelete
  165. That woman is ridiculous and always has been.

    ReplyDelete
  166. "I'm getting MY Bella big fake tits as well! And you can see the operation LIVE only on the WWE network!

    ReplyDelete
  167. How else will we be able to talk about Daniel Bryan's return?

    ReplyDelete
  168. If Bryan enters at 1-5 and gets eliminated after 30+minutes by a Heel the fans want to see him feud with, such as Rollins. Then the fans should still accept a different face winner.
    The main issue last year is everyone was waiting for Bryan to come out and when he didn't at 30, everyone in the ring was shit on .

    ReplyDelete
  169. We're the second largest country in the world with a low population. We don't actually intermingle all that much.


    She does look hot though, so you're right about something.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Yeah... other than a change in hair and fashion she looks basically the same as she did in "Rad"

    ReplyDelete
  171. Santino dropping the accent is kind of like seeing Kevin Smith actually speak outside the Silent Bob thing for the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  172. Maybe scott keith could set up the meeting

    ReplyDelete
  173. Dude....did you see the pic of Kevin without his beard?

    So fucking weird....and man does he look like every jersey shithead ever.

    ReplyDelete
  174. online reports that someone was reminded on Crash Holly for part of his character, is hardly enough to write off a wrestler. You could argue that the small underdog who backs down from nobody was also the gimmick of Rey Mysterio.

    ReplyDelete
  175. HappyNewBeard is words!
