Boy that Sandow cash-in. I think I'll officially admit it went no where, at least give the man his robe back and his pink trunks.
It has been basically downhill since the Rhodes/Sandow feud and got pushed even fast after that cash-in.
I realized after that they must have been noticed that Sandow's briefcase becomes a problem when they unify the titles. That's kind of where I've fallen in order to not totally hate what happened, it was somewhat necessary to set up their Cena-Orton TLC match.
Sandow's style is great, because it looks vicious and the psychology of it works. He looks like he is constantly on full bore attempting to kill the other guy but his body or the damage he took earlier is slowing him down. As opposed to other heel wrestlers where it looks like they're intentionally moving slow just to do so.
edit: Daniel Bryan has never lost at Night of Champions. He's 4-0.
If the SHEETZ are to be believed, the unification idea was a super last minute decision due to the piss poor reception of the Show/Orton feud. I just think that they wanted a big moment for Cena the night after he returned and him being the first guy to overcome a cash in was what they decided.
It was announced at tonight's NXT tapings that the February 28 edition of NXT will air live on the WWE Network.
They didn't say more than that, but I assume that they'll continue to tape a month's worth of shows in one night, but that, the first episode of the tapings will air live on the Network (or on a slight tape delay).
Two things about the network I've seen mentioned but not 100% sure of.
- The "connected device" that couldn't be named during the press conference is rumoured to be the Apple TV.
- WrestleMania will only be a part of the Network package for this year, as a way to entice people to signup. WM XXXI and all future Manias will only be available through traditional PPV (this was supposedly mentioned during the post-conference interviews).
@mildmolasses: It was the little things that tipped it off:
Also, Mae might have been one of the most memorable figures of the Attitude Era and she was certainly the toughest and willing wrestler to ever be a part of WWE. I'll certainly miss her. May you rest in peace.
Sad to see Kaitlyn go, but at least her last match is on Main Event tonight against AJ (and they pretty much broke kayfabe with AJ hugging Kaitlyn after it).
Also, turn that frown upside down because Daniel Bryan is a time traveler:
Ladies and Gentlemen, the official Elimination Chamber 2014 poster:
In other news, Eva Marie was a massive troll on Twitter during Old School Raw and it was amazing, posting gems like this:
Del Rio and Sin Cara is this an episode of Super Astros!? #OldSchoolRaw— Eva Marie (@natalieevamarie) January 7, 2014
get into your WRESTLEMANIA CRAZY DIRT SHEET RUMOR mode
because Hulk Hogan vs Roddy Piper in the year 2014 is a thing that someone has possibly thought is a good idea.
Whatever, Meltzer just put in his newsletter that Taker requested to face Daniel Bryan at Mania. On paper, this seems out of left field considering Lesnar/Taker has been rumoured for the better part of a year now, but Meltzer did break Fandango/Jericho back before any of that made sense.
He also noted that the top four matches planned are John Cena vs Bray Wyatt (supposedly this would close the show), Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar, CM Punk vs Triple H and Randy Orton vs Batista.
@papercut: Pretty sure that the mystery celebrity who was very close to buying TNA was Toby Keith (according to da Meltz) and Jarrett was the one who orchestrated it, so I guess the Carters killed it and he split.
Also, turns out that the Lesnar part of the spoiler for Smackdown was a troll from a member of /wooo/ to the dirtsheets.
Major MAJOR Raw spoiler ahead:
It was mentioned on Smackdown (which was taped tonight, but will air on Friday), during a Big E Langston interview, that Mark Henry will challenge Brock Lesnar on Raw and Lesnar will then show up and attack him.
The only reason they would spoil this is because they want people to tune in out of interest, right?
