Total Diva's Renewed for a Second Season
The second season will begin in November
Referee Marc Harris Answers Critics for Botched Finish on RAW
Here are some responses he made on his Twitter account regarding the finish of the mixed tag match.
"the submission was released before the tap out, so I could not stop the match until the submission was reapplied. Good ref'n"
"no mistakes,submission was released before the tap out,so it was reapplied til the tap out. A great ref would pick that up & I did"
"no problem, alot of "know it alls" think they know the rules but don't. That's why I'm a professional cause I'm one of the best."
BJ Whitmer Injury Update
Whitmer suffered a bruised spinal cord and spinal stenoisis, the same injury that ended the career of Edge. He is currently seeking a second opinion.
"Referee Marc Harris Takes Responsibility for Botched Finish on RAW"ReplyDelete
Clearly, you and I have different definitions of "takes responsibility."
Whoa, that was a big screw up. I corrected the headline.ReplyDelete
BJ Whitmer may be the ugliest man in the history of wrestling.ReplyDelete
I dunno why, but the "good ref'n" part cracked me up.ReplyDelete
Yeah that was gold.ReplyDelete
didnt you caliber shit for talking about your physical features?ReplyDelete
THERES TALK OF MOVING SMACKDOWN TO 3 HOURSReplyDelete
Bulldog Bob Brower says hello.ReplyDelete
Oh God No! Where did you hear this?ReplyDelete
I have never in my life 'caliber shit'.ReplyDelete
Maybe taking a piledriver on the ring apron was a stupid fucking idea, eh BJ?ReplyDelete
Uglier than Hacksaw Jim Duggan or the Duke of Dorchester, Pete Doherty?ReplyDelete
Where are all the guys that said Total Divas would be "one and done". I noticed they quieted out. Everyone is an expert on the internet...ReplyDelete
Oh lord, If BJ is done that means the review I just posted has his last full match...that's less then IdealReplyDelete
People actually follow a WWE ref on Twitter?ReplyDelete
Some unknown WWE ref has almost 35,000 followers... Meanwhile Marc Mero only has 10, 000 followers.. Something is wrong with that..ReplyDelete
I'd say that's actually... just about right.ReplyDelete
ok, but you gave him shitReplyDelete

A wrestling referee justifying something is hilarious. "I know I was facing away from the match for a long time, but I had to make sure that after I ejected the manager he was all the way through the curtain. I couldn't turn back around until he was completely gone. I'm pretty sure that the powdery substance that is in the good guy's eyes and all over the ring wasn't there a minute ago, but hey, what can I do?"ReplyDelete
So is the red haired lady just an actor they hired for the show? I watched the second episode but it was a bit weird with the Fandango stuff. Is it like how on most "reality" shows they always bring in an actor to rile things up by "Keeping it real"?ReplyDelete
I just don't understand what the two new divas were hired to do other than act for the camera. The marriage proposal and the dancing thing. It all screams "written by Steph Mcmahon."
Because he doesn't know what I look like. I know what Whitmer looks like.ReplyDelete
I actually thought it was going to do decent in the ratings, I didn't expect the ratings to be this good but I didn't think it was going to be a flop. There are too many stupid/bad reality shows out there that do very good ratings wise. I didn't see this as being any different. If Honey Boo Boo can be a hit, Total Divas can be too.ReplyDelete
I hate to say it, but it looked like the hilarious botch Monday was Natalya's fault. She applied a terrible Sharpshooter and then let it go before AJ tapped. She almost repeated the mistake when she reapplied it.ReplyDelete
#HardBodyRef has 213K, but he's also an Armstrong, and a way underrated one at that.ReplyDelete
Actually pretty cool that Harris is Kayfab-ing this.ReplyDelete
This is only good news if Dutch and Vince have a Trading Places-style bet where Dutch gets the book.ReplyDelete
So the Natalya vs Brie Bella match has been changed to a tag-match with Natalya teaming up with Maria Menounos vs Brie & a Mystery Partner???ReplyDelete
A Mystery Partner! Are they shitting us? I'm watching that just for the sheer hilarity of Nikki Bella coming out as Brie's mystery partner. Oh and Maria Menounos ain't bad to look at either.
I, too, believed that Natalya let go before AJ tapped...she actually seemed to stumble to the ropes for support.ReplyDelete
It would have been smoother if the ref had called for the submission anyway, but they are taught to go with the flow. That botch is all on Nattie, and she should apologize to the ref for making him look bad.
"If Koko B Ware is a Hall of Famer..."ReplyDelete
I wouldn't be surprised if that "botch" was part of the Totsl Divas storyline for the additional episodes E! just ordered.ReplyDelete
Maybe the "mystery partner" is a newly heel Cameron. There's no way she is going to remain a face after the way she is portrayed on Total Divas.ReplyDelete
Add "worked botch" to the lexicon.ReplyDelete
Dollars to doughnuts if it catches on, "#goodrefn" will be introduced and then ran into the ground.ReplyDelete
Fuck you, Mike Bennett, you useless piece of shit.ReplyDelete
I agree, that was Nattie's fault. She almost screwed it up the second time.ReplyDelete
It really ruins her whole, "I'm the best wrestler in the Diva's division and they NEVER PUSH ME" whining storyline they're trying to tell on Total Divas.
Internet troll who gets on a message board just to post unpopular opinions?ReplyDelete
Shit dude, WE ALL *KNOW* what you look like.
They should bring a retired ref back and have him justify bad calls, like how Fox and ESPN have hired ex-officials to talk about replays during football games. I can just see Tim White explaining what happens when a ref misses something due to interference -- "Hey man, we don't have eyes in the back of our heads!"ReplyDelete
The only thing I don't get is why they had that be the finish before the men even got in. I had some suppositions before, and someone figured that it might be a work even then, since the ref did screwy stuff later on, too. Might make sense that it's a work.ReplyDelete
What the...YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!!!
Bennett's one of the best guys on the indy scene by far. He's not useless by any means.ReplyDelete
Bennett is all size no substance, he'd flame out very quickly in the big leagues unless he was a pet project of the managementReplyDelete
I can't get used to him with short hair. I know he cut it a while back with the Hangmen 3, but that looked weird too and I think he'd regrown it since then. Maybe he should grow some facial hair or something. He kind of looks like Merle from Walking Dead, so I guess that could be a good or a bad thing.ReplyDelete
Did meltzer tell you?ReplyDelete
Threadjack - Blackcena just announced that he's gay to TMZ! It'll be tough to gauge his push or punishment over the next few months since the PTP have been so neutered lately anyway but it'll still be interesting to see if Titan Towers can be a Star themselves over this development.ReplyDelete
Eh, mistakes happen. Although I've noticed her crappy Sharpshooters for the last year or so. Rock-esque.ReplyDelete
Nikki's hurt, allegedly.ReplyDelete
You mean Cameron/Trinity? I think they portray her as a face on Total Divas. She's the down-to-earth half of the Funkadactyles.ReplyDelete
Trinity is Naomi, the down to earth one and Ariane is Cameron, the wild one. Moot point anyway since they already announced Eva Marie as the mysteyy partner.ReplyDelete
Ah, my bad. I'd still say they're not really portraying Ariane/Cameron as a heel (yet), but more of a ditzy face. She makes you roll your eyes, but you don't necessarily dislike her.ReplyDelete
