  1. RAW Insert 11.22.10


    Hello everyone, I’m here with a RAW Review Insert (because I don’t know what else to call it) to fill you in on what happened last night at the Amway Center, where I was in attendance!

    First off, funny story, since I saw that ThinkSoJoE mentioned this last night: We thought it was the Amway Arena too.  Turns out, the Amway Arena is closed.  So we got to Orlando a ridiculous three hours before the tickets said to show up, and walked around the Amway Arena (and got a picture of a production truck), only to see that it was closed.  We had two different sets of directions to go off of, so at least we knew where we were supposed to go.  We got there and stood in line for an eternity.  I saw someone dressed up as Hogan (who ended up up front, that bastard), and then someone dressed up as The Miz with his old ring gear, flame-decorated fedora and all.  I couldn’t get a picture of him because he walked away too fast, but it did make standing in that damn line tolerable.

    Minor Superstar Spoilers coming now.

    Justin Roberts told us that we were starting out with a match.  It was Goldust vs some guy whose name I can’t remember.  Orlando LOVES Goldust, just to let you know.  Cheered him on loud.  It was pretty damn cool.  He lost, unfortunately, but he’s… electric in person, to make a bad pun.

    King and the new guy for Superstars came out.  We all clapped and cheered a little for the new guy, but King got a standing ovation, and after he sat down, some Jerry chants.  He laughed and waved.  Pretty neat.

    Next up was Santino (who got a HUMONGOUS pop) and Vladimir Kozlov (who also got a humongous pop, but Santino’s was bigger).  I saw a couple Santino signs floating around, so that was cool.  They were up against Ryder and Primo, who were the hated enemies.  Pretty good match, and Santino is… crazier in person.  Something I learned: Zack Ryder can’t seem to keep his trunks over the very bottom portion of his ass.  I’m not sure you needed – or wanted – to know that, but there it is.  Santino and Kozlov won after a Cobra, which we continuously called for.  Made the night that much better.

    Here is where Michael Cole came out, to a series of boos and cheers, and he pointed at one Cole-hating sign and laughed, then pointed at mine, mouthed the words, and laughed too.  Apparently, he likes the whole heel-Cole thing.  He’s good at it, and seemed to be a pretty decent guy.  Justin Roberts told us here that they were going to do the pre-RAW sweep over of the crowd to get signs and what not, so that’s why Cole was there.  Then, Cole moved for the new guy.

    Usos and Henry were at it again for Superstars.  Tamina joined the Usos, but we all seemed to hate them (I like the Usos, but I really wanted to cheer, so I just stuck with what was going on.  Minor shame, but I had fun).  Mark Henry won that one, painfully, by stacking the Usos on top of one another and then just slamming his whole body weight down on top of the both of them, and then hitting the one who had been on bottom with the World’s Strongest Slam. Night night.

    Superstar spoilers over.

    Then it was time for RAW!!! We did NOT want Barrett talking.  Every time he started, we kept shutting him up.  I had to stop at one point from booing him to laugh.  I have no idea what he said, except he insulted us once, I think, and continued to look REALLY pissed off as we booed him.  The SHUT UP COLE sign you saw behind Cole when he stood up to read the email was mine. J The same one he laughed at.  It made me happy.

    During this first commercial break, we were shown WWE commercials: Knucklehead, Wrestlemania, Wrestlemania Reading Challenge, Smackdown vs RAW 2011, a Legendary, and the History of the WWE Championship were all the commercials we saw.  There was a Kiss Cam, and Josh Matthews did come out to show everyone signs.  Those were the only unique things that happened during commercials.  Otherwise, I just got to see more of the matches.

    CM Punk came out to a HUGE pop here, which is a little surprising.  We don’t care that he was a villain on Smackdown, because he provides witty commentary.   Sheamus came out to a surprisingly huge pop, and there was a green sign behind Cole that had “IT’S A SHAMEFUL THING LOBSTER HEAD” on top, a white stick figure thing of Sheamus below that, and then “TOO MANY LIMES TOO MANY LIMES” on the bottom.  If you saw it, that was me.  If not, well… fine then.  R-Truth came out to a huge pop too, and I was all confused by the What’s Up song, but I didn’t say anything.  R-Truth has run his course with me.  Got a bunch of good pictures of Sheamus, btw.  His hair’s not as red in person, but he’s just as white.  Pretty decent match, crowd was divided on who they were behind though.  Oh, and when Sheamus hit the High Cross on Truth, he bounced really, really high.  I was stuck giggling and missed the pin, but Sheamus won.

    Since the announcers plugged it here, I bought the John Cena experience.  Yeah.  I did.

    We all laughed at the backstage segments.  LayCool was booed until Natalya came on, and she was cheered so loud that I missed what she said, but that’s alright.  Randy was cheered so I missed his question, but that’s also alright.  The crowd seemed excited for the Ezekiel Jackson vs The Miz match, but I was more.

    When Alex Riley came out by himself, I wanted to punch him.  I admit I laughed at Miz having an anxiety attack (and even harder this morning when I found out that @TKeep123 anticipated I may have kidnapped him… Not this time, Fred!!), but I cheered for Alex.  Ezekiel is HUGE in person.  I think the guy’s muscles have muscles have muscles.  Good match though.

    Random note now that I’m thinking about it: To whoever kept screaming at me to put my sign down, screw you honey.  I don’t care that you can’t see.  That’s what that GIANT screen at the top of the ramp is for.  Dumbass.

    HUGE pop for Cena.  We continued to cheer for him throughout the entire time he was out there, and when he wanted us to do the “Let’s Go Cena” “Cena Sucks” thing, it was even louder in person.  I think it echoed even after he stopped it.  And @Niki_Sushi texted me practically jumping down my throat to find out what he said here, and he said that it may be bending the censors, but he was already fired, and told Barrett that karma was a bitch.  We all cheered for possibly breaking the PG barrier.  Cena chants followed him up the ring the entire time.  He also mentioned that someone may be having a heart attack that he was going over his allotted time, but we still didn’t care.  That actually made us cheer again.

    Ted and Maryse came out during the commercial to a huge pop (at least from me).  Maryse is SOO pretty in person, and Ted is gorgeous.  Gonna say that now.  Maryse walked around as Ted paced back and forth, we got another commercial (which screwed me up), and then Daniel Bryan came down with Bella Hoe #1, and got a huge pop from everyone (but me).  Pretty good match, and Ted is brutal in person.  The Bellas are almost pretty in person (I can’t stand them and they aren’t that pretty to me), and are kind of idiotic.  They went to hold the ropes apart for Bryan, but held the bottom ropes, then started for the middle one, then went back to the bottom one.  He kind of laughed at them and then went through the middle and top.  Boy, they must’ve felt like morons.

    Natalya came out to a huge pop, and I only got pictures of the back of her head.  The woman is in constant motion.  Alicia even got a bit of a pop, and her strut is… it made my hips hurt.  Never done that on TV, but did in person.  Someone, get her a doctor, please!  We all made that, “Oooh, now you gonna get it” noise when she ripped out Natalya’s hair, and I would have died had Natalya retaliated by ripping Ailcia’s off.  Good match though.  Natalya’s a strong woman.

    I have no idea what Melina and Morrison were talking about either.  But GOD, Morrison is pretty in person.  I think we were more excited about his pyrotechnics than him though, gonna be honest.  Tyson got a pretty huge pop too.  The Flying Chuck looked hella painful, and Morrison almost missed the ropes, when he jumped the corner there to hit it.  Either way, good match.

    Randy came out to a huge pop, and we were pissed when Nexus came out to jump him.  I actually think that the whole Amway Center collectively gasped and tried to warn him at the same time.  He limped backstage, then Barrett came back out and we booed.  Then, of course, Randy came back out and we cheered.  Great match, and only half of us were sitting.  Cena came out and we lost our minds, then Randy hit the RKO and we did again.  When Miz’s music hit, I was the only one who cheered, and everyone else booed.  Half the arena joined me as Miz picked up momentum, but when he hit the Skull Crushing Finale, we all cheered, though I was louder.  I was going to go home pissed if I didn’t see him (haha, no one thought that, I’m sure), but I did! And he won! And he looked like he was going to cry, and I felt so happy I thought I was gonna puke, and it was fantastic.

    Look, here’s what I’m saying: If you ever have the chance to go, DO IT! Doesn’t matter where your seats are, just go.  It was my first Live RAW, and I’m going to make it to whatever live show I can afford from now on.  It was amazing.  There was no dark main event match, but they sent me home more than happy.

    Oh, and to the upset little girl whose face was shown after, Haha sweetie.  Haha.

    And a  huge thank you to ThinkSoJoE for covering last night for me.  You did a great job!!  And steal all the images you want. 🙂 That’s what they’re there for.

  2. SmackDown results 9/11/09


    We’re not wasting any time – the bell tolls and The Undertaker is heading towards the ring!

    He says that the sands of time have fallen slowly through the hourglass, but in two days, he’ll reclaim the World Heavyweight Championship and once again cast his shadow of darkness over SmackDown. He’s sure by now CM Punk is growing very tired. By now, he’s constantly waking up in the middle of the night in a puddle of his own sweat, consumed by fear, knowing that his Breaking Point will be realized when he feels the grip of Hell’s Gate. Submission is the only alternative to an eternity of pain. When Punk submits, and he will submit, not only will he relinquish the World Heavyweight Championship, but he will personally hand Undertaker his soul, and thus the symphony of lies shall end.

    The World Heavyweight Champion has heard enough, and he comes out on the stage, microphone in hand. He says that he sees through the smoke and mirrors, and sees Undertaker for what he really is. While Jeff Hardy was a charismatic enabler, Undertaker is so much worse. He’s prayed on these people’s chemically influenced minds for nearly 20 years. He’s like this generations Alice in Wonderland. He’s created a self destructive cycle because all of these people actually believe in The Undertaker. They believe he’s got magical powers that allow him to come back and vanquish any foe. They believe, get this, that The Undertaker has a chance of taking the World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday. What they don’t realize is that Punk is stronger than the Undertaker’s previous victims. He’s not after Undertaker’s soul, he just wants to make him tap out. Imagine the reaction when Taker does tap out? They just lost Jeff Hardy, and now they’ll watch The Undertaker submit to the Anaconda Vice. They’ll go and get drunk, pop some pain pills, just to numb themselves from the reality that their hero tapped out. We’ll get a glimpse of it tonight when Punk makes Matt Hardy tap out to the Anaconda Vice. He asks The Undertaker not to interfere, because he wants everybody to get a glimpse of the world we’ll all live in after he makes Undertaker tap at Breaking Point. There will only be one icon, the choice of a new generation, the only straight edge World Champion in history, CM Punk. They’ll all be forced to join Punk and just say no. Taker says Punk got something wrong. They won’t be saying just say no, they will say rest in peace.

    Up next, it’s a Belfast Brawl pitting Finlay against Mike Knox


    Last week, Finlay pinned Knox after a shillelagh shot.

    This week, the fighting Irishman faces Knox in a Belfast Brawl.

    Finlay def. Mike Knox

    Knox is kinda doing this smart guy gimmick, which is cool.  It kinda reminds me of Raven a little bit, though I don’t believe that Knox is actually a member of MENSA.  Anyways, speaking of the original ECW, matches like this make me miss it.  Sure, it’s more brutal than the normal WWE match, but it’s got none of ECW’s hardcore heart.  Steel chairs and trash cans are the traditional WWE weapons, and they’re put to good use here, mostly by Knox.  Knox breaks out another WWE staple, at least since the Dudleys came over from ECW a decade ago, the table.  Before anybody actually goes through the table, Finlay gets to his shillelagh and knocks Knox cold for the three count.

    Backstage, Michelle runs into Dolph Ziggler, who is looking for Maria.  Maria’s nowhere to be found, and Michelle wants to know what he sees in a ditzy little girl like Maria when he could be with a sexy woman like her.  She falls and starts groping him while Layla snaps a picture with her cell phone.

    Later on tonight, it’s CM Punk vs. Matt Hardy


    Monday: The Price is RAW!

    David Hart Smith is accompanied by Natalya and Tyson Kidd for singles competition.  He’s not the only one accompanied by family – Ranjin Singh is with his big brother, Smith’s opponent, The Great Khali.

    This one never gets started, as Kane attacked Khali as soon as he got in the ring.  He grabs another WWE signature weapon (that was stolen from ECW), the Singapore Cane, but before he could use it, Khali turned the tide and dropped the Big Red Monster with a Punjabi Plunge.

    The Unified Tag Team Champions are heading to the ring, as they’re up NEXT!


    The World Tag Team Champions are here.  They both lost in singles matches against their Breaking Point opponents this past Monday on RAW….

    Yo yo yo yo yo, it’s Cryme Tyme!

    I hope JeriShow destroy them.

    Chris Jericho and The Big Show def. Cryme Tyme

    I have to apologize, guys.  I’ve paid absolutely no attention to this match because I just found out about Jeff Hardy’s arrest earlier today and was reading about it.  JTG tried to skin the cat back into the ring, and he got an unlikely assist back in from The Big Show’s fist, knocking him out cold and leaving him prone for Jericho to pick up the pinfall.

    Teddy Long is greeted by Mr. McMahon backstage.  Mr. McMahon reminds him he’s on probation, and that SmackDown is only good.  It needs to be great.  What’s Long going to do about it?  Next week, he’s got a huge surprise that will change the face of SmackDown.  Mr. McMahon wants to know what he’ll do for him at Breaking Point.  Long says he’ll have something good.  Mr. McMahon reminds him he doesn’t like good, he wants excellent.  McMahon asks where his picture is, and Long says he’s wondering the same thing.

    Submission Match coming up later tonight between Matt Hardy and CM Punk.


    Charlie Haas is already in the ring – which means he’ll be jobbing.  Especially since his opponent is the NEW Intercontinental Champion, John Morrison!

    John Morrison def. Charlie Haas

    John Morrison can make anybody look like a credible opponent, which makes him look even better when he hits the Starship Pain and picks up a victory like he did here.

    JoMo says that last week he became the Intercontinental Champion in one of the greatest matches of his career, but it wouldn’t be possible without Rey Mysterio (doing drugs).  He can’t describe the feeling, but he hopes these images will do that for him.

    Video: Morrison celebrating winning the title and hugging Rey Mysterio

    Morrison thanks Rey from the bottom of his heart, and offers him a rematch whenever he gets back from his suspension asks for one.

    I am perfection…

    Dolph Ziggler is sickened.  He earned his title match, and Morrison and Mysterio decided to have a match.  Morrison says that’s pretty much what happened.  Was he going to lose again to Mysterio?  Ziggler says that the third time’s a charm, but he wants his title match.  Morrison says let’s do it right now.  Ziggler says no.  We’ll have it on his terms.  Morrison wonders if Ziggler’s scared and calls him Mr. Ziggles.  Ziggler says nobody calls him that.  Morrison wonders if Maria calls him that.  Ziggler says nobody calls him that.  Morrison says he just called him that.  Ziggler says Morrison doesn’t count.  Morrison says the whole arena is chanting “Mr. Ziggles.”  Ziggler says to stop it or he’ll leave the stage.  The fans cheer.  Morrison says he thinks Ziggler should go, because it’s what the people want, and they’re not going to stop chanting “Mr. Ziggles.”  Ziggler slinks up the ramp and backstage, much to the delight of the SmackDown fans.  Morrison says that the WWE Universe won’t stop chanting Mr. Ziggles as long as he’s Intercontinental Champion.

    Josh Matthews is with Matthew Hardy.  Tonight he faces the man who was right about his brother’s drug use all along ended his brother’s career.  Hardy says that Punk won’t be able to say he’s never submitted anymore.  There will be two submissions – to The Undertaker at Breaking Point, and tonight against Matt Hardy.  He says that Punk will be lucky to make it to Breaking Point, because when he locks in a submission, he’s not letting go.


    Melina is out first for her match, and her opponent, Layla, is accompanied by the WWE Women’s Champion, Michelle McCool.

    Layla def. Melina

    Michelle hit Melina with her crutch to allow Layla to pick up the victory.

    Josh Matthews is with R-Truth.  He asks about Drew McIntyre.  Truth says that the party is just getting started and starts babbling.  The basic idea, I think, is that he wants a match with Drew McIntyre – who assaults him from behind.


    Before the break: Drew McIntyre attacked R-Truth

    Todd Grisham and JR run down the Breaking Point card

    The World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk makes his way out to the ring as we relive him crashing through a table last week at the hands of The Undertaker.  He’s facing Matt Hardy in a submission match – NEXT!


    CM Punk def. Matt Hardy

    Matt, I’m begging you, please either go back to the pants look until you drop some weight, or get some tights that fit you.  You look ridiculous with your underwear sticking out of the back of your tights.  If I were your opponent, I’d give you a wedgie.  In fact, I just tweeted him that @MATTHARDYBRAND.  Here’s hoping he doesn’t post a blog blasting me.  Hardy actually holds his own in this match, and utilizes a variety of submission holds, primarily working over Punk’s knee.  Doesn’t stop Punk from kicking him in the head then locking him in the Anaconda Vice for the victory!

    Punk celebrates his victory, holding his title high, but the bell tolls and the lights go out.  When they come back on, Punk is without his title, as it is in the possession of The Undertaker at the top of the ramp.

    My Thoughts: I have absolutely zero interest in Breaking Point.  Submission matches are traditionally held between two guys who are well versed in submission – Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit comes to mind.  I’m also disappointed that a submission themed pay per view doesn’t feature any of the three members of the roster who were trained in the famous Hart Family Dungeon.  Hell, the Hart Dynasty can’t even get an actual match anymore.  Matt Hardy seriously needs a different look.  The black tights aren’t nearly as distracting as the blue ones he wore a couple of weeks ago, but they don’t fit him in any sense of the word.  Ah well.
