Monday Night Open Mic

All right, this week C.M. Punk should be passing Randy Savage right? Might make for an interesting telecast. With the Road to Wrestlemania set to begin in six weeks this is the time for the seeds of future booking to be planted.

Enjoy the show and come out swinging but please...pretty please....keep it clean. Thanks :)

Comments

  1. Really hoping Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns don't swing and miss on their promo tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Punk should do a quick shoot comment about Randy Savage not being in the WWE HOF. It would be appropriate for his character and the fact that he's been paying homage to Savage for quite sometime now. The problem is, the fans will face pop that big time, but who else should/would/could do it?

    ReplyDelete
  3. I honestly think the last remaining hurdle is WWE not wanting to induct the entire Poffo family. Savage was big enough that being inducted the same time as The Genius would be a let down.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Leave Lanny out, who cares? It's so dumb to not have Savage in there. If you're going to have a silly HOF for your company, how can this guy not be in it without an explanation of some kind?

    ReplyDelete
  5. id just say induct the poffo family... then the next year induct macho solo.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Lanny has said that Randy's wish was that they would all get inducted together or not at all.

    ReplyDelete
  7. This would be amazing and completely in character, agreed.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Or compromise by having Randy the headliner and the rest of the Poffos on the undercard.

    ReplyDelete
  9. If ever there was a week for a dynamite show, it's this one, going up against a terrible Panthers/Eagles game.

    Naturally, we'll get about four segments with AJ, Cena, Vickie, and Ziggler, as their angle continues to go derper.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Exactly, it's not like anyone really cares about the undercard of the inductees anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  11. So by the Rumble, Punk will surpassed everyone but the really long title reigns in Pedro, Hogan's 1st, Backlund, and Sammartino.


    Are they really going to have the Rock end it, only to have Rock drop it to Cena in the middle of smark central at Wrestlemania?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Only way this will catch my interest is if Punk says, "Savage and I have a lot in common, long world title reigns and BANGING STEPHANIE."

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm 100% positive they have no idea what they are doing yet, even the finish of the Rock/Punk match.

    ReplyDelete
  14. "And locking our valets in closets!"

    ReplyDelete
  15. They don't even know the end of tonight's Raw yet

    ReplyDelete
  16. The intro is not working.

    ReplyDelete
  17. They might. The Observer reported that Vince is away from the show tonight, which means less 11th hour-thirty rewrites.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I had heard of Ambrose for a while from the BOD, but never really saw him since I don't watch NXT. Over the last week I checked out some promos and man, this guy is absolutely dynamite. I hope he's the main guy on the mic for the trio, and I'm psyched to see what kind of program these guys get.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What does it say about the state of a company when people say "The man in charge isn't here, so everything should go much more smoothly"

    ReplyDelete
  20. So when Ryback accidentally falls through a table like a geek at TLC and 3 months from now, no one cares about him anymore, who gets the blame?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Are you against adding The Genius to the same Hall of Fame as Koko B Ware?

    ReplyDelete
  22. But there's a pretty good Knicks/Nets game though going on.

    ReplyDelete
  23. PEARL RIVER PLUNGE

    ReplyDelete
  24. early vote for post of the night.

    ReplyDelete
  25. That was a decent little power match.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm sorry, but I can't help but want Ryback to add a little "Hulk HO-HOGAN" at the end of each sentence.

    ReplyDelete
  27. How sad have the Eagles become that I, as an Eagles fan, would rather watch Raw? I'm sure I'll check out the game, but I fear what it'll do to my mental state.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I read today that the Phillies have won a game more recently than the Eagles. That's awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  29. So I would like to pose a question to the blog, as I'm considering throwing in the towel on Raw, and WWE in general, other than reading results, and Mania and the Rumble. It's just not worth committing 3 hours to anymore, and I only half watch anyway, mostly DVRing it and checking in when the blog says something interesting actually happened.


    The question is: What would it take to make you completely give up on WWE? Is it week after week of boring, aimless shows with the wrong guys going over that would eventually wear you down? Or would you need a watershed moment, like Big Show turning face and squashing Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns in a 3 on 1 handicap match? Or would you never stop watching?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Jack Reacher looks terrible. Like a Direct-to-DVD rip off of the Bourne movies.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Like hell it was. It was awkward as fuck.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Five guys in yellow shirts. Are they in a secret alliance with Shane Douglas? TUNE IN TO NITRO TO FIND OUT!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Kofi moonlights as security?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Why is Kofi working security?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm super close actually. Had given up for a few years post Benoit, Summer of Punk brought me back to weekly watching. At this point I'm curious how they book Rock/Punk/Cena over the next 5 or so months. Probably Cena standing tall with the belt as Wrestlemania fades to black would end things for me. Not even for any particular Cena hate, but just for the overall staleness of product if that comes to pass.

    ReplyDelete
  36. A TLC match? Oh god

    ReplyDelete
  37. Be a star, Ryback.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ryback climbing ladders could bring serious LOLz.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Why wouldn't he leave the ring? He just got what he wanted?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Pretty much, that's what's gotten me to check out the weekly shows less or just better things on TV in general.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Pretty sure he can climb a ladder. He isn't 600 pounds.

    ReplyDelete
  42. How convenient that Punk and Ryback are going to settle the score in a third and final match?

    ReplyDelete
  43. 15 minutes, two women bullied. Is this a new record?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Between Maddox, Hornswoggle, and Jackson Andrews, Rosa doesn't have a lot of luck with the men.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Khali/ADR......Fuck.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Must be a phone booth in the back, Del Rio changed fast.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hell with Hernandez, that's some real SuperMex stuff right there.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Boy, nothing like 15 minutes of roid rage to open the show. Kinda kills me, 'cause there are so many stories about Ryback being a stand up guy backstage. But christ is his character awful (although I totally dug his heel henchman role in Nexus.)

    ReplyDelete
  49. You do realize that climbing a ladder isn't some complicated thing right?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Well, no Punk or Ambrose/Rollins/Reigns yet...but also no Cena/AJ/Ziggler yet. So let's call it a wash so far.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm in the same boat (outside Phila). I just need 41 pts from Desean to win my fantasy game so I *may* check in and see if he's breaking records or something.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm willing to bet Punk/Ambrose/Rollins/Reigns don't show up until the last hour of the show.

    ReplyDelete
  53. So the good guy gets two shots at the WWE Title, doesn't get it done. So he throws a tantrum, holds the show and the ring hostage, beats up a security guy just doing his job. Tells the authority figure to shut up when she is giving him what he wants. He gets rewarded for messing up the show, beating up an innocent guy and threatening to tear the ring apart by getting a title shot. And we're supposed to cheer for this guy?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Coming back from commercial to a boring chant isn't very promising

    ReplyDelete
  55. To be fair, they noted twice that the segment took place earlier in the day, and led to what is happening now. Lame, but still.

    ReplyDelete
  56. That Austin was such a jerk when he poured beer on those guys after he lost the title.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'll give Ryback the benefit of the doubt and say that he didn't get it done was because of outside interference.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Tell me about it. He even flipped off the boss!


    What a jerk!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Darn, didn't catch that. Shame what happens when waning interest and lowered expectations meet.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Yeah, but Austin had transcendent charisma and had already established a nuclear connection with the audience at that point. Granted, the biz was different then, but RB just comes off looking like a petulant bully whose connection with the crowd is a catchphrase they like to chant...and not much more (have you heard the crickets during some of his matches?)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Sadly, this is preferable to Cena whining like a petulant 8 year old after blowing his 8 millionth title shot.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Depends on your level of coordination.

    ReplyDelete
  63. So they carry around a TV to put in the office, then just rig it to show a RAW logo? Must be spending too much time printing off posters of video game covers to actually hook it up.

    ReplyDelete
  64. So I guess Heel authority are allowed to be heels to other heels?

    ReplyDelete
  65. or just CM Punk.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I'm down by 20 and have DeSean, but my opponent has Steve Smith. I'm toast, so I can't even watch for that.

    ReplyDelete
  67. True. But at least Cena has the ability to be a compelling character once in awhile, something RB hasn't proven yet.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm sorry guys but Vicki is so awful. She mumbles and trips over every word! I know people love Eddie but she's terrible at this.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Although he was able to climb the cage.. so I guess I can give him the benefit of the doubt.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Gonna be on before even 9. Well, they can't be weirdly blamed for anything too big rating wise, at least.

    ReplyDelete
  71. That is the entire point.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Austin's shennanagins were cheeky and fun but Rybacks shannanagins are mean and hurtful!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Pointing a gun at someone's head is so cheeky!!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. She is not.campy.bad...she is just bad bad. It's distracting

    ReplyDelete
  75. Dean Ambrose just slaughtered it in the first 10 seconds.

    ReplyDelete
  76. When did Heath Ledger sign with the WWE and start going under the name Dean Ambrose?

    ReplyDelete
  77. Seth Rollins is boring me already.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Why couldn't this have been done live?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Can't normally stand Moxley/Ambrose, but I LOL'ed.


    "Nope."

    ReplyDelete
  80. So Michael Chiklis is in charge of these guys?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Rob Liefeld. All the pockets gave it away.

    ReplyDelete
  82. BAH GOD THAT'S SHANE VENDRELL'S MUSIC!!!

    ReplyDelete
  83. In watching his stuff for the first time over the past week, I thought the same thing. His mannerisms and voice certainly harken to the Joker sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Aw, come on!! Stop showing that still of Cena kissing AJ. I can feel the Hamburger Helper working it's way back up when I see that...

    ReplyDelete
  85. Ambrose strikes me more as a Phil Coulson guy.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Calling it right now. Roman Reigns is the next "guy". The next Hogan, Cena, Rock, Austin. And all 3 guys are going to be major stars. People will talk about them all coming in together like they do about Cena, Orton, and Batista.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Dean Ambrose meet Philip Blake.

    ReplyDelete
  88. He came off great in that segment. Ambrose did too. Rollins, not so much.

    ReplyDelete
  89. If that is the case, which one gets killed by grenade, which one offs his entire family and then himself, and which one gets hauled off to jail to the shock and horror the audience?

    ReplyDelete
  90. Until I see or hear Reigns in an extended manner, I contend that Ambrose is going to be The Next Big Thing. But I generally concur with your sentiment. They just seem like stars.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I would like my Dean Ambrose shirt IMMEEJITELEE

    ReplyDelete
  92. the shield is already a million times better than aces and 8's

    ReplyDelete
  93. ...so fandango...a rib on Jericho for dancing with the stars?

    ReplyDelete
  94. That was solid, I like the three of them together. Hopefully they get a chance to get over and don't get buried to pay their dues. I can see them getting over as a group of anti heros, especially in the smart heavy crowds.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Alicia Fox was La Parka all this time? MIND BLOWN.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Thedaughter of WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Snuka!

    ReplyDelete
  97. "Daughter of Jimmy Snuka" drink count starting...

    ReplyDelete
  98. I was thinking that..but in fairness, the chick IS freakishly skinny.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Isn't that King Haku's daughter?

    ReplyDelete
  100. So Dane Cook is Fandango?

    ReplyDelete
  101. Oh shit, they're starting to heel Cole out again.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Cole acting vaguely heelish with his defense of The Shield to Lawler. I am watching cautiously. Please...please no.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Rollins just looks and sounds like a face, bringing him in as part of a heel stable probably isn't the best idea. But it's better than nothing so let's see how it goes, I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  104. David Aceveda for GM!!!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I've never understood that either. I used to think the LCD TV was a fake prop until they actually used it to cut to a clip once.

    ReplyDelete
  106. It would be cool if a "whose your daddy" chant started when Tamina came out.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Definitely time to check out my Eagles.

    ReplyDelete
  108. That new Cena shirt...is it telling us he's going to fist us?

    ReplyDelete
  109. Well, that first hour was terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Side note: I'm tired of hearing about the Eagles are playing for pride. They're playing because they won't get paid if they didn't.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Is it John Cena for all of the above?

    ReplyDelete
  112. Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns as a 3 headed Batman could be huge. Especially with a face turn if/when they finally stand up to a big monster heel.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Love a good Super Troopers reference.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Hasn't he been for the past 7 years?

    ReplyDelete
  115. Who is that? I can't see.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Might be a vehicle to turn Rollins. Over time he doesn't agree with how they do things and quits and feuds with them.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Cena can only be killed with Kryptonite.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Did You know the companies that the WWE bragged about beating in the Social Media Power Rankings do not need shamelessly whore themselves out to Twitter and Tout.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Who is asking Cena that question?

    ReplyDelete
  120. Yep, I'm intrigued. Want to take them at face value and not panic booking in December with "we were punk's all alonnnnnng". Could be interesting if they go around sticking their noses in all the BS booking, can go after Sheamus next for being a dick face.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Agreed. The "stars" are going through the motions, and the other guys are playing for jobs. If they had been playing for pride, they wouldn't be in a 6-game losing streak.

    ReplyDelete
  122. They wouldnt think that far ahead.

    ReplyDelete
  123. YESSS I LOVE VICKIE/CENA MIC-OFFS!

    ReplyDelete
  124. "The Shield" is a decent group name, but I would have gone with "Deus Ex Machina"

    ReplyDelete
  125. This is not very good.

    ReplyDelete
  126. One Of These Nights The Eagles are gonna Take It To The Limit, but I Can't Tell You Why.

    ReplyDelete
  127. To quote Bryan Alvarez: "NO BUYS"

    ReplyDelete
  128. Who wants to bet Vince is writing the Cena-AJ segments and is using AJ as a surrogate?

    ReplyDelete
  129. AJ speaks like a fucking cocky dickhead. PERFECT for Cena, I can loathe them together.

    ReplyDelete
  130. This all can only be settled with a three way AJ/Cena/Vickie to release all that sexual tension. As accordance with WWE booking, Ziggler must sit in the corner, watch and cry.

    ReplyDelete
  131. ...so in the weeks of this crap, they ever set up a reason why Vickie's all fatal attraction obsessing in this storyline?

    ReplyDelete
  132. ziggler always has that look on his face like he smells dog shit.

    ReplyDelete
  133. With WWE booking, he'd be watching at home via Tout.

    ReplyDelete
  134. She's already switched to jeans...soon it will be ball caps and matching tees.

    ReplyDelete
  135. For some reason, I just had a sudden flash of memory that that's Eddie Guerrero's WIFE in the ring.


    Vickie has essentially crafted her own career and distinctive persona independent of Eddie, far more than Chavo ever did.

    ReplyDelete
  136. So AJ will not mention that Vickie was fucking with the Big Show and Edge??

    ReplyDelete
  137. 10 years from now: the father of WWE Hall of Famer Tamina Snuka!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Can AJ be any more of an unlikable bitch? Vickie is a widow, you empty headed cum dumpster.

    ReplyDelete
  139. As per the usual rules for these things, I'm amazed we ended up with a match. Typically, they settle these sorts of things with dance-offs.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I must say, there are some pretty high profile match-ups on free tv tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I never watch Raw live but out of habit, still DVR it and fast forward to Punk and some parts that may look ok. Anyways, I heard that newly annointed "Shield" would be speaking so I quickly fast forwarded to check this out.


    Let me say...Dean F'N Ambrose! That dude has STAR written all over him. That segment was fantastic.



    Of course they don't work directly for Punk, they work for Heyman ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  142. I kinda wish JR was gonna call the Sheamus/Cesaro match. He does such a good job of putting talent over in the booth, and I think genuinely raises the game of whoever works with him in that regard.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Sadly, I think you have to take "with" out of that sentence.

    ReplyDelete
  144. The fact that they put The Rock's breast reduction surgery hiding outfit in a video game is hilarious to me.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Didn't watch the Vickie/AJ/Cena stuff so I assuming it was terrible. Which is why it is so frustrating watching WWE right now because there generally is a lot of stuff they still get right. And they turn around and do something as equally as awful with this angle.

    ReplyDelete
  146. And I'll never understand why they feel the need to do these terrible soccer mom storylines with Cena. As stale as he is, he can still be effective in straight up wrestling angles.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Seems like a good idea, remind people football's on.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Does anyone else wonder if Albert is regretting signing that WWE contract?

    ReplyDelete
  149. Am I the only one who can't understand much of Kofi's theme music?

    ReplyDelete
  150. Would you regret making more money?

    ReplyDelete
  151. Hah, I JUST emailed that WWE.com list to Scott not thirty seconds ago. That thing is fucking HILARIOUS.


    Randy Orton is officially more beautiful than Trish Stratus, and HHH is hotter than Kaitlyn, Molly Holly, AND Dolph Ziggler.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Yes, our weekly 15 minute Sheamus match and our weekly jobbing of a secondary titleholder all in one match. Gotta respect the efficiency. Coming up later.

    Kofi should get the win here as the IC title jobbing gets rotated every other week.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Good thing they are running a big time Sheamus/Cesaro matchup tonight. Gotta keep those viewers from switching to that other wrestling program also on right now.

    ReplyDelete
  154. I can't understand why Cena is OK with doing this storyline with the recent divorce and cheating allegations(even it was when they were engaged).

    ReplyDelete
  155. Still kind of a fan of Tensai. For some reason that is eluding me at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Mid-card champion wins clean - the Mayans were right.

    ReplyDelete
  157. I like Barrett but he was useless on commentary.

    ReplyDelete
  158. He really is the ultimate company man. Someone should tell Cena that it is ok to say no sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Is it the shiny trunks? Has to be the shiny trunks...

    ReplyDelete
  160. Bryan is so great!

    ReplyDelete
  161. I like that they're getting the crossbody over as a secondary finish. It's a very old school finish that shouldn't be the transitional nearfall it often is.


    That said, how many finishers (or near-finishers) is that for Kofi? SOS, Trouble in Paradise, crossbody...if he ever went for a nearfall off the Boom Drop, he'd have the record.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Think Chris Benoit voted for Kane?

    ReplyDelete
  163. You know what's bugging me the most about this AJ/Cena/Vickie stuff? Nothing gets done. For all of the segments they've had, they've accomplished very little...except for the Cena-fication of AJ.

    ReplyDelete
  164. A polling joke three weeks after the election. That's some topical humor

    ReplyDelete
  165. Great, now they're taking potshots at Nate Silver?

    ReplyDelete
  166. Well, Lawler was "ok" with doing a heart attack angle only 9 weeks after it happened....

    ReplyDelete
  167. Gladly take Bryan vs. Mysterio as a consolation

    ReplyDelete
  168. sooooo Bryan was trending worldwide and he loses?

    ReplyDelete
  169. I hope Bryan didn't spend 100 mil.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Yeah I call BS on that poll. But hey Bryan vs Rey, sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  171. How do you know he's making more money?

    ReplyDelete
  172. As much as I would have loved to see Punk/Bryan, Bryan/Mysterio should rock.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Daniel Bryan is going to get a sternly worded letter from an idiot for ripping up that sign.

    ReplyDelete
  174. "I'm winning the rest of the world!"

    ReplyDelete
  175. I'm not comfortable calling the results yet. We still have votes coming in from Bryan strongholds in New York and New Jersey.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Why would he sign there otherwise?

    ReplyDelete
  177. He could have wanted to be stateside. We don't know. He was higher on most cards in Japan.

    ReplyDelete
  178. An hour and a half into the show, and we finally get a good wrestling match...

    ReplyDelete
  179. Di...did Rey die his goatee red?

    ReplyDelete
  180. Well if he wanted to be stateside, then why would he regret it?

    ReplyDelete
  181. I thought Rey was going to blow out his knee on that landing.

    ReplyDelete
  182. Seriously shut up with the polling jokes.

    ReplyDelete
  183. You ever take a job that you thought would be better than it was and then after you took it you found out it wasn't??

    ReplyDelete
  184. I really doubt he is that much of a mark for himself that he would regret coming to WWE because of his push.

    ReplyDelete
  185. I often miss the Vickie/AJ/Cena stuff, and will just continue to assume it's terrible until someone can not only tell me differently, but provide a plausible argument for why.
