WWE RAW Review 9/15/2014: The Half-Time Show

John Cena grabs Paul Heyman

Hey, you, loyal WWE RAW viewer. One who never misses an episode. Did you know Monday Night Football was back? Did you know that the NFL is probably going to beat WWE in ratings from now until 2015? Oh, you didn’t? So last night’s WWE RAW booking probably made zero sense then, huh? Funny how that works… Read More »

Video: Bray Wyatt Promotes Raw on Lafayette Morning Show

Bray_Wyatt_wild

Bray Wyatt is definitely his own guy.  And that really stands out in his WWE persona as this dark, mysterious man with his own set of beliefs which really isn’t too far from the real man. So, it was quite interesting a few months ago when the WWE decided to have Wyatt start speaking with the media to promote various ... Read More »

John Cena Momentarily Gets Real

cena_mania1

Watching Raw on Monday, as my wife said “we’ve seen this before, why don’t they do anything different?” several times throughout the broadcast, two things really stuck out to me. First and foremost, Paul Heyman is hands down the best talker in the business today and probably of this generation. He can turn “Brock Lesnar is huge and scary and ... Read More »

WWE RAW Rating Somewhat Surprising

WWE

Reactions to last night’s WWE RAW have been somewhat mixed. Overall, though, most people thought it was a stinker. There was a bunch of hype behind the show, with Jerry Lawler as the advertised guest to mediate issues between the Bella Twins. It was also billed as the “season premiere.” The show was headlined by a Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt rematch ... Read More »

Vince Russo Hated Raw So Much He Wrote an Open Letter to McMahons

vince-russo

There’s been plenty of displeasure over this past Monday’s edition of WWE Raw.  That’s probably even a nice way to say it with others saying it was bad, pointless and just a horrible three hours. So most people hated it especially when it came to the segment with the ongoing Bellas storyline that went off the rails … again.  If that’s ... Read More »

Inviting Michael Sam To Raw Is Shameful, WWE

Michael Sam

You know what makes me angry? When a wrestling company puts something else above the industry. I get that there are stockholders to answer to, and WWE Network subscription numbers to explain away. I’m well aware that WWE Raw is getting ready to face it biggest competition in the coming weeks with Monday Night Football But no excuse justifies WWE ... Read More »

WWE Raw Review 9/1/2014: WCW Monday Nitro!

bunny slater

Despite heavy criticism, I gave WWE major props yesterday for what looked like a renewed creative spirit. I thought things were clicking. Apparently, McMahon & Co felt the opposite, and decided to publicly prove me wrong on last night’s WWE Raw. Segments I kind of hate these talky interview/talk-show segements like ‘The Highlight Reel’ and ‘MizTV.’ They’re relics of a ... Read More »
