I wonder if they had a different plan for Jericho, or if he decided last minute to come back. Because it seems like they have nothing for the guy.

#11052 Posted by MildMolasses (3224 posts) -

I feel like such an odd man out here for not liking Raw last night.

  • Too many movie promos and, even though I enjoyed the humour in it, that Kane/Halle Berry bit could not have been placed in a worse spot
  • I was on board with Fandango last week, it was unbearable this week
  • Still don't care about Swagger or ADR

I think I'm coming to terms with being a lapsed fan that is only interested in a very select few people on the program. But maybe trying to jump back in while Raw is doing 3 hour shows just wasn't a great idea.

They don't have a plan. On last week's MLW podcast Jericho said that he called up Triple H and they hammered out a 10-week deal for him within minutes. From what I can gather he's just there to add star power to the Wrestlemania build-up.

A rumor that's being credited to PWInsider is going around saying that the stipulation for Brock vs Triple H II is a worked MMA-Style fight.

I'm serious.

Raw, as a whole, was good. My problem is that it feels like an absolute cluster fuck for the road to Wrestlemania. There are almost no existing feuds that are being built up for Mania. People keep getting shuffled around to do stuff with other people than who they worked with the week before. It's painting a very ugly picture for Mania.

this.

VGCW is live if you're into that sort of the thing. The Giant Bomb bump is in full effect. Over 2,000 viewers for the opening match.

I always turn it off immediately. It just seems like a bunch of idiots talking in caps and spouting garbage..so just like any other chat.

It could work out to be good. NJPW did something similar to this between Nakamura and Sakuraba and it's still my favorite match of the year so far. Then again, I'm sure HHH and Lesnar won't take it as far as those two did.

#11063 Edited by TurboMan (7605 posts) -

Also... WWE Payback PPV is officially announced and the logo looks like I made it.

PPV takes place in Chicago, so chances are that it's going to be good.

Lion's Den Match?

All joking aside they could just mean submission and KO are the only ways to win. At least hopefully because some kind of round by round MMA scripted thing sounds awful

At tonight's SmackDown tapings, this match was made official for Mania...

Randy Orton, Sheamus & Ryback vs. The Shield

#11066 Edited by DrX25 (1534 posts) -

Smackdown Cliffsnotes:

  • Randy Orton and Sheamus defeated Team Rhodes Scholars when Randy RKO'd Rhodes.
  • After the match, The Shield challenged Orton and Sheamus to find a partner and face them at Mania.
  • Miz defeated Darren Young with the Figure Four Leglock. Wade Barrett was on commentary.
  • Big Show was backstage demanding to be Ormus' partner, but they said that they had picked Ryback.
  • Kaitlyn and Layla defeated Tamina and Aksana. Kaitlyn hit the spear on Aksana, but Layla tagged herself in and got the pin.
  • Backstage, The Bella Twins attacked the Funkadactyls and mocked Brodus and Tensai.
  • Dolph Ziggler defeated Kane. Towards the end of the match, a fight broke out between Daniel Bryan and Big E. After the match Big E beat up Kane.
  • A new Zeb/Swagger spoof video aired, it was about Canadians.
  • The Great Khali was about to face Fandango, but since Khali butchered his name, he refused to debut.
  • Booker made Orton/Ryback/Sheamus vs The Shield official and The Shield attacked Orton and Sheamus.
  • Ryback defeated Mark Henry by DQ when The Shield murdered Ryback. After the attack, Mark Henry hit the World's Strongest Slam on Ryback multiple times.
  • Jack Swagger defeated Chris Jericho with the Gutwrench Powerbomb.

No #TeamStache developments, no buys. Also, TWO DIVAS FEUDS?!?!? (Oh, who am I kidding, this is all merging into Kaitlyn vs Layla vs Nikki vs Brie at Mania).

But... that makes no sense. They had something potentially really interesting, so they just killed it? Damn it WWE.

This better end with Mark finding some way to get a match with Ryback at Mania or something.

#11069 Posted by Canuckin (4 posts) -

I'm having a hard time finding a good reason to buy WM this year. The only thing that remotely interests me is Dolph cashing in and winning the WHC but even that is questionable.

Well, that's dumb. They had two potentially cool matches, and that kinda shits on both of them.

#11071 Edited by GorillaMoPena (2218 posts) -

I wonder if that means HOSS FIGHT is

Mark Henry vs Big Show which would suck

Also it has now been reported that while it isn't known what the Lesnar/HHH stip is that it totally isn't MMA style.

Wrestlers have something in common with the Giant Bomb community, they like video games as well!

Bo Dallas had the most Bo Dallas pick for greatest video game, Mortal Kombat. Titus O'Neil's part is the most entertaining part of the video.

Fixed!

Jericho was on Dancing With the Stars, it's a totally natural feud!

If they REALLY wanted to take that match to the next level, they would bring Stacy Keibler back and make it a mixed tag match.

Turned on Impact, one of the first things I see? The Chicago crowd chanting "MORGAN'S AWESOME!" at Matt Morgan.

I think I may have found the next great plague.

#11092 Posted by DazzHardy (762 posts) -

So, a friend of a friend and said friend were on facebook posting about The Pope, and one of them said they had to call the NWO. Cue me making a pretty sweet Hulk Hogan refrence and NO ONE getting it. Said friend of friend didn't even know who Hulk Hogan was. I don't think I've ever felt this sad about my choices of entertainment ;_;

#11093 Posted by MildMolasses (3224 posts) -

The crowd for impact was great. The A&8's stuff was shitty. Bully Ray didn't even try to explain anything, preferring to say he fooled everyone for nine months. Awesome! Maybe explain how any of your "fooling" made any actual sense.

Roode and Aries are awesome. Bad Influence slightly less so. I don't want to see Matt Morgan in any capacity.

I really want to like Aces and Eights guys. I wasn't watching WCW at the time of nWo and stuff so I can't compare it to that, other than people saying it's sort of the same but I don't see it that way. It sounds like nWo had people just joining to join where A&8 was already planned out. It still doesn't excuse the fact that they lose all of their matches but I really guess I really like factions. I don't know, someone tell me what I'm missing or something...
