Monday Night Raw Date: May 31, 2021 Location: Yuengling Center, Tampa, Florida Commentators: Jimmy Smith, Corey Graves, Byron Saxton It’s Memorial Day, meaning we might be in for a huge show or it might be one that has absolutely nothing because no one is going to be watching.

You can’t see the head of the table

So Scott rumor has it Roman Reigns vs John Cena will headline this year's Summerslam. Put me at ease and tell me the tribal chief/head of the table/king of sting/big dog will continue his dominance and pound Cena into oblivion.

Links Question

Hi Scott!

Mike Reviews – Pro Wrestling NOAH Mitsuharu Misawa Memorial Show (31st May 2021)

Konnichiwa! Back with another NOAH review, because YOU demanded it! (Well, a few people did at least) Mistuharu Misawa formed NOAH in 2000 after taking the majority of the All Japan Pro Wrestling roster and setting up a brand new company.

Daily’s Place

Is Daily's Place the MVP of the “pandemic era” of pro wrestling? AEW has been helped immeasurably by having a cool outdoor venue to operate out of during the empty arena shows.  There's still the uncanny valley of the mostly-empty amphitheatre, but just having shows in an amphitheatre rather than some sealed-off little gym (like ...

Pre Shows

Hey Scott,   Just a quick question for you.  You never do the pre show matches in your reviews.  Do you watch them, or just the main cards? Anything I actually watch is part of the review.  Usually that’s not the Preshow.   from Scotts Blog of Doom! https://ift.tt/3fBzZVT via IFTTT

Favourite Misawa match?

Seeing as it’s the Misawa Memorial Show on FITE this weekend, what’s your favourite Misawa match? I don’t think I have a specific favourite.  Probably one of his five star matches with Kobashi in the 90s but Misawa wasn’t a guy I really ever had much personal investment in.  from Scotts Blog of Doom! https://ift.tt/3p8DUwn via IFTTT

HBK/Cena @ WM23

Just re-watched this and noticed something for the first time.  After the match as Shawn is leaving down the aisle Cena comes out and stops him presumably to do the mutual sign of respect/handshake/hug thing.  Shawn pretty much blows him off and looks like he mouths “not tonight” before walking away.  Was Shawn pissed he ...

Orton/Edge

Warrior in 1990

One of the big problems with Warrior’s 1990 run as champion was that he didn’t have any fresh heels to work with.
