WWE RAW Reaction 5/12/2014: Daniel Bryan Says Goodbye

WWE RAW Reaction 5/12/2014: Daniel Bryan Says Goodbye

The show opened with Evolution… because, at this point, it’s obvious that their feud with The Shield is WWE’s top priority right now. I’m not entirely sold on the ‘we’re angry and want to challenge Evolution to a REMATCH even though we won cleanly’ logic. There’d be more money on the table (and more momentum

WWE RAW Reaction 5/6/2014: The Shield Succumbs to Evolution

Last night’s show opened with a 20-man over-the-top battle royal… and I couldn’t help but roll my eyes. We’ve seen how many of these matches in the last month? I get the storyline reasons. Still, witnessing yet another “get everybody in the ring at one time” match hurt my brain a little. These become less

WWE Extreme Rules (2014) Reaction: The Shield Conquers Evolution

  Our Kickoff Show started with WeeLC… which wasn’t as horrible as some people made it out to be. Still, that doesn’t mean it was worth much. Both Hornswaggle and El Torrito were impressive for the number of unique things they tried, and hats off to all men (especially Jinder Mahal) who took some nasty

WWE Raw Reaction 4/28/2014: Ric Flair Returns

The show opened with John Cena in a steel cage, and while the visual was impressive, it’s the exact same thing we’ve seen for weeks. Cena’s promo was decent. And Bray Wyatt’s entertaining ‘Children of the Corn’ serenade was probably the creepiest thing that’s happened on Raw since The Undertaker sacrificed Stone Cold Steve Austin

WWE Raw Reaction 3/3/2014: “The Dumbest Thing I’ve Ever Seen”

It wasn’t a matter of if the hometown Chicago crowd was going to steal the show, but when. Luckily, WWE’s creative team was smart enough to recognize this, and they attacked the CM Punk issue head-on. As a result, Paul Heyman gave us one of the most tangible, addictive show openings in recent history. Notice

WWE Raw Reaction 2/24/2014: “Deal With It!”

Last night’s RAW kicked off big. Hulk Hogan came out, addressed his return, flexed his muscles, and got the crowd pumped. It was perfect. Hulk Hogan is a wrestling icon who looks even bigger standing in front of that large crowd only WWE can deliver. Naming him the guest host of ‘Mania makes sense. It’s

Raw Reaction (2/10/2013): “Raw is White”

Last night’s show opened exactly where I feared it would: with Betty White walking out to the ring. Luckily, Big Show stepped up to be the world’s largest arm candy. And this whole charade quickly ended when The Authority came out. Thank goodness. Too bad it didn’t signal Betty White’s final appearance on the show.

WWE Raw Reaction 1/27/2014: #YesMovement

Raw got off to a hot start last night with a great segment between Daniel Bryan and The Authority.  WWE smartly played to the crowd by letting Bryan opening the show – it essentially tackled the Royal Rumble problem head-on.  Seeing Bryan call Triple H out on his biased decision making, and hearing Triple H

Royal Rumble (2014) Reaction: “Yes!”

It didn’t take long to figure out last night that WWE is pretty out-of-touch with its core audience.  On the pre-show, we saw the New Age Outlaws defeat the Rhodes Brothers… the same Rhodes Brothers team that has looked absolutely unstoppable since joining forces in Fall of 2013.  On the upside, this probably means we’re
