Time for the second to last Impact. Are you ready?
This week, Joe, G, JT, and Mark talk wrestling – but that’s before they veer off into a conversation about the new Monday night FOX show, Gotham. Who is the Joker? Was it the comedian? Time will tell. Meanwhile, back on USA Network, who is the bunny? Praise is given to NXT talent, and praise is given to Impact as a whole for having mostly wrestling matches on the show. Praise is given to SmackDown for not just being RAW recaps for two hours.
In the news, we learn the new names of some recently acquired WWE talent. We get an update on the WWE Network in Canada. We find out the most recent updates to the timetables of Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan’s returns. We get more information on TNA’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view and AAA’s Lucha Underground show on the El Rey Network. All this and more on BWF Radio!

BWF it’s your birthday! Happy birthday BWF! Yes, six years ago I started BoredWrestlingFan.com as a site for fans, by fans, and I’ve gotten to do some cool stuff over the years because of it. Not make any money, mind you, but I got to meet guys like Johnny Gargano and Gregory Iron, get threatened by the late Matt Borne, and talk yoga with Diamond Dallas Page. I’ve also been stuck doing this RAW review. Oh well, let’s go.
30 minutes home, the rest here, blah blah blah just click the link.
Twenty-five years I’ve been watching WWE television, week in, week out, without question. I never miss RAW, which since 1993 has been the only television show I watch on Monday nights. Well, aside from watching Nitro on picture-in-picture of course. But something happened last night that made me question why I’m such a loyal viewer of this program. I watched an entire 3-hour RAW live on TV. This was the first time since they made the permanent switch that I’ve watched the show live as it aired without actually being in the arena, and I’ve gotta tell you, I can’t understand how people do this every week. I found myself checking the time once every 15 minutes or so once I hit the 90 minute mark. “It’s gotta be close to 11 by now.” Nope, 10:15. The fact is, there wasn’t anything really going on to advance storylines or anything either. So we’re talking 3 hours of filler. In fact, only the overrun was worth watching. So today, I’m not going to watch the show over again and review it – I’m going to recap it using Ian’s Intense Post-Payback Raw Recap from AngryMarks.com as a reminder of what, exactly, I watched in those 3 agonizing hours last night.
Well, this should be interesting. Let’s go.
First things first. Happy Memorial Day, and a thank you to those who have made that ultimate sacrifice to allow guys like me to sit here and talk about whatever the hell they want to on the internet. Second, happy 3rd Anniversary to my beautiful wife, Mrs. ThinkSoJoE. Third, happy birthday to my friend and BWF Radio co-host Mark Noyce. Now that the formalities are out of the way, let’s get this 3 hour show out of the way. This is one of those “I don’t feel like watching this show” nights. So we’re going to skip through it and give you basically what you need to know to follow the current storylines. Sound good? Let’s go.
I watch 30 minutes, leave, then watch the whole show from the beginning, just so you don’t have to. Maybe that’s why ratings are slumping?
So. Here’s an interesting predicament. My computer is not currently allowing me to search Google. So it might actually be somewhat difficult for me to find images to post in this review. Apparently some jackass on the same wireless network I’m on was sending automated requests to Google which caused them to Ambrose “nope.” So, let’s hope for the best!
I watch 30 minute of RAW then leave for work to watch the rest here and type up what happened, mostly so YOU don’t have to suffer through it yourself. Aren’t you lucky to know me?
Words cannot describe how bad my day has been so far. TNA won’t help.
So. You guys know how I usually do these – I watch two hours, drive to work, and watch the whole show just to remember what I watched to write it down here. Well, I no longer drive to work – I dosed off behind the wheel and wrapped my car around a light post – and did just as much damage to the post as my totalled car. I, however, am fine. A few bruises and abrasions, but nothing a little OTC pain reliever won’t fix, should I feel bad enough to actually take that shit. Oh well. In the immortal words of Pink Floyd, the show must go on!
Ouch. Ow. Aaaaahhhh. Oh man my ribs and knees hurt – yet nothing is actually damaged. Oh well, screw it, let’s go. Click the button.
You know, I think my couch might be a little too comfortable. Last night I fell asleep watching Extreme Rules, which was a solid event top to bottom, and tonight I fell asleep watching RAW. Maybe it’s just me recovering from the illness that kept me from doing this RAW review last week. Who knows. Maybe it was RAW that put me to sleep? Guess we’ll find out over the next few hours. Let’s go!
Blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda. You know my deal by now. Watch at home, leave before it ends, watch again to review. Just click the jump.
