    hello my wrestling peeps.

  • S.A.M.

    hey hey hey

    • drew

      hi

      • S.A.M.

        what up drew?

        • drew

          nm hbu???? ready for RAWWWW?

          • S.A.M.

            yeah im ready but also am antsy since tomorrow is game 1 of the world series and the Dodgers finally made it after nearly 30 years.

          • drew

            sweet. go astros.. sorry haha.

          • S.A.M.

            haha

  • There’s almost an hour before Raw starts, make sure you check out my review of TLC in The Afterglow! Okay, you can read it after Raw, but make sure you do, and leave a comment to tell me what you think!

    • drew

      i did. good stuff queen!

      • That was fast! It was longer than usual – I think.

        • drew

          bit was but in a good way.

          • Good, I was worried. Writing SD has been fun because it’s a shorter show than Raw, but PPVs are quite long and I didn’t want to drag it out.

  • drew

    i am reaally looking forward to tonight. so many questions.

    • Which is why TLC was so good. And we were waiting for SD the same way after HIAC! If only the WWE would get the top straps off those useless not-believable strap holders!

      • drew

        my number one question: is braun a face now?

        • How about, is Braun squished into a tiny square after being compacted?

          • drew

            good question.

          • And, how about, how are they going to build the feud between Miz and Angle?

          • drew

            that would be fun.

          • Then there’s, who is Asuka going to destroy next?
            And, will Asuka going after Bliss right off the bat?

          • drew

            bliss is definately next.

          • Has to be, especially after what Mickie said after the match.

      • drew

        and agree.

  • My sister told me the orange kitty is going to be named Garfield regardless of it’s gender.

    • drew

      well hello. lol sounds like a fit name.

  • Xavier

    What’s good everybody

    • drew

      whats up whats up?

      • Xavier

        What up Drew

        • drew

          just ready for raw x. watching survivor series 2001

  • I expect Miz to interrupt Kurt who is kicking the show off tonight.

    • drew

      yupp.

  • CJ Blaze

    The Survivor Series card will be a little odd if we do get a few of the rumored heel champion vs. heel champion matches.

    • drew

      trueeee

    • I’m all for that. I have been advocating having Champion vs Champion matches at Survivor series.

    • So NOT impressed with the thought of Mahal vs BL. Even if they weren’t strapped. Even if Mahal wasn’t a jobber who shouldn’t be strapped. Even if BL wasn’t a useless, money-grubbing PoS. Even if VKM had a clue. I wouldn’t want to see it.

      • CJ Blaze

        Agreed. Reports suggest Cena could be the ref. And not even that could save it. Lesnar vs. Mahal screams BLAH.

        • Austin couldn’t save BL vs Goldberg, there’s no way Cena could save BL vs Mahal!

  • Xavier

    Ambrose/Rollins vs The Usos at SS would be fire

  • It might look weird but I think a Baron Corbin vs Miz match would work.

    • drew

      man idk..

  • drew

    here we gooooo.

  • drew

    jinder vs brock is crap.

  • it’s go time!

  • CJ Blaze

    Stan “Krusher” Kowalski died on Friday at the age of 91.. for anyone who knew him.

  • The Olympic Shield was victorious

  • In Kurt’s case that is accurate. He does still got it.

  • drew

    yES

  • S.A.M.

    Jinder Mayhal

  • David Jr.

    I wonder if Jinder Mayhal is better than Jinder Mahal.

    • Doubt it, but at least it was pronounced better than Eva Marie did!

      • David Jr.

        I’d love to see Ginger Mahal vs. Gangrel.

        • Gangrel is still wrestling, but not in his prime. That being said, Gangrel would still destroy him. So not a Mahal fan!

          • David Jr.

            I was making a joke because Vampires and Ginger. Because that’s what I recall Eva Marie called him Ginger, right?

          • Yes, she did. But I’m a huge Gangrel fan, so I couldn’t help myself.

  • Dustyn

    With the Jordan vs Elias match, they could have easily made it a “Tomatoes, Lettuce and Carrots Match”, but oh well! Haha!

    • Xavier

      lol good one

  • David Jr.

    I want a tag team 10 man vs. 10 man elimination match. Though I don’t know if Raw has enough tag teams.

    • CJ Blaze

      I tried predicting that yesterday on my flight. Raw only has Gallows/Anderson, Sheamus/Cesaro, and maybe Jordan/Hardy, Crews/Titus. They could add Alexander/Swann if there wasn’t a CW tag match.

      • David Jr.

        Yeah, with Jeff hurt, Bo sick and Scott Dawson hurt, too. The Raw tag team division is lacking right now.

      • David Jr.

        You also have Heath Slater & Rhyno

        • CJ Blaze

          Dang, I’m surprised I forgot about them because I like them.

  • Xavier

    3 heel vs heel matches at SS

    • drew

      kinda weird

  • They are missing out on a Cruiserweight Survivor Series match.

  • Dustyn

    Braun to make the save?

    • Xavier

      He’s dead lol

      • Dustyn

        Are you sure about that, haha!

      • David Jr.

        If Shredder can survive so can Braun.

  • drew

    ive missed this theme.

  • Dustyn

    AJ Styles!

  • drew

    WOW!1

  • S.A.M.

    AJ Styles, you da real mvp

  • CJ Blaze

    The lines are being blurred ahead of Survivor Series.

  • Xavier

    We’re definitely getting a slow burn to Miz/Angle with JJ eventually worked in there

  • Nice touch for Aj to be wearing red on his ring gear.

  • drew

    aj dean seth teaming. wow

  • Eddie

    So this is where everyone went? 🙂

    • drew

      eddie!

      • Eddie

        What’s up Drew

        • drew

          not much whats up man

          • Eddie

            Nm. Been out of the loop a while. Wanted to get back to watching with everyone but didn’t know where everybody went lol

          • drew

            yeah everybody left mostly lol

          • Eddie

            I noticed haha

          • drew

            haha ya.

    • CJ Blaze

      And here to stay! Tell your friends 😉

      • Eddie

        Sure thing

    • Yay! You made it! How did you find us?

      • Eddie

        CJ’s twitter

        • Good to know! We are trying to see how people found us, because we have worked hard to get the word out through social media, but haven’t been able to reach everyone that way. There’s only a couple more regulars who have yet to make it over to us. Glad you did!

          • Eddie

            Me too. I’m actually at work now but I’ll be following the results on here. And I should be able to watch next weeks

          • Great! We have shaken up who does what here, but I think it’s working out quite well. If you come up with something you think we’re missing, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We’re working hard for the readers, but running our own site is all new to us!

          • Eddie

            Will do!

          • David Jr.

            The strangest thing I found and I don’t know if it’s just me, but according to my computer, Wrestleroyalty is secured but the other site is not.

          • Botch is good at what he does. He did most of the work setting up the site, and locked it down in the process. I couldn’t be more thrilled by the work he did/does.

        • CJ Blaze

          Of all places? Interesting lol

  • David Jr.

    Seth and AJ on the screen together without AJ throwing a game controller.

    • S.A.M.

      it could still happen again lol

    • and making more excuses than Battery Man in the process.

      • David Jr.

        I don’t know if anybody makes as much excuses as Battery Man, but P.O.P. is up there.

  • A smile comes accross Sheamus’s face when they chant he looks stupid.

    • drew

      he loves it.

    • Xavier

      Definitely

  • S.A.M.

    Rollins sold that DDT like RVD

  • drew

    this is fun

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    So is AJ gonna be permanent?

    • drew

      no.

    • CJ Blaze

      Just “one night only” again

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        Damn. I was hoping.

  • Xavier

    Im iffy on Miz/Corbin and very iffy on Brock/Mahal and Bliss/Natalya

    • drew

      agreed

    • I’m less iffy on Bliss/Nattie than the other two.

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        Agreed

    • David Jr.

      What about Bliss vs. Carmella, if Carmella cashes in before Survivor Series?

      • Xavier

        Would be okay. I’d prefer Charlotte vs Bliss though but she doesn’t have the title

  • CJ Blaze

    Someone mentioned last night that the ring sounds different. I’m noticing it tonight.

  • Wouldn’t it be fun if in return for the loan of AJ. Kurt Loaned Samoa Joe to Smackdown to feud with KO and Sami Zayn?

    • drew

      oh yes.

  • Xavier

    Fun 6 man tag

    • CJ Blaze

      Very! AJ is GOAT.

  • David Jr.

    If you could have only one, which would you rather see AJ vs. Seth or AJ vs. Cesaro?

    • drew

      aj vs seth but both would be good.

    • Xavier

      AJ/Seth

    • CJ Blaze

      Oooo don’t make me choose… but I’d have to go with Seth.

    • Cesaro. Rollins is so over and can work with anyone. Cesaro can work with anyone, but hasn’t been able to get out of the Tag Division hold. I’d love to see him break out (at some point) and go after the Uni Title.

  • drew

    huh

  • Curtis Axel needs to break off on his own

    • David Jr.

      I loved watching Curtis Axel and Brian Kendrick talk about random stuff.

  • drew

    here comes braun.

  • CJ Blaze

    Braaaaaaun?

  • drew

    nvm

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Am I the only one hopelessly distracted by Kane’s real hair being seen through the fake hair?

  • CJ Blaze

    As much as I respect him, I’m tired of seeing Kane only be effective or “strong” once a year.

  • David Jr.

    Does the Raw Women’s Team have to win the 5 on 5, if Asuka’s on the team?

    • Xavier

      I kind of hope they keep Asuka away from that. Build up mystic in her character

      • David Jr.

        So Raw would be Bayley, Sasha, Mickie, Emma & Alicia then?

        • Xavier

          Yeah but who knows that may just use Asuka or if Nia returns earlier then expected

      • If Asuka isn’t involved then the team would be Alicia Fox, Bayley, Dana Brooke, Emma, and Mickie James.

  • Xavier

    Too bad the MMA ladies and the WWE couldn’t get a deal worked out for Survivor Series

    • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

      I think it was due to wanting to push Rousey solo.

      • Xavier

        Makes sense

  • drew

    brauns definately coming

  • We witnessed a Mugging last night.

  • Xavier

    Y’all think it’s too early to turn Braun face?

    • drew

      nope. hes pretty over.

    • CJ Blaze

      I thought so, but I’m willing to see where it goes.

  • CJ Blaze

    Tonight is fresh and exciting. When was the last time that happened for Raw?

    • drew

      trueeeeee.

  • Unanswered Question: How did Kane jump from Smackdown to Raw?

    • S.A.M.

      something something superstar shakeup

    • David Jr.

      He’s a free agent like John Cena?

    • Eleazar Rodriguez

      He is a floater and goes where he is needed.

  • Balor might need some help form his friends.

  • Hey, kids!

  • Xavier

    Kane’s hair piece is crooked. It don’t even cover the back of his head lol

  • Braun Retires both Big Show And Kane to replace them as the definitive big man in WWE.

  • drew

    honestly ive always thought kane was underated.

    • SAME!!! Booking didn’t always cooperate with him.

      • drew

        always should have been a badass. except the angle with daniel bryan. that was good.

        • He was great at that too. That causes a problem when you’re so good as such disparate things.

  • It’s pretty hard to believe that Kane is 50!

    • drew

      maannnnnn.

    • Ultimate reliable hand. Almost never injured and does whatever is asked of him for 20+ years.

    • David Jr.

      His first WWE match was At SummerSlam ’95 over 22 years ago.

  • CJ Blaze

    ….

  • I love watching Kane being so dominant but I don’t like that this is happening to Finn. Finn got a nice rub last night but this isn’t good for him.

  • David Jr.

    I hope Shane McMahon is not on Team Smackdown this year.

    • CJ Blaze

      My guess is Angle and Shane will both be wrestling.

  • Xavier

    I kind of wish they did qualifying matches to see who gets into the 5 on 5 match at SS

  • Xavier

    Y’all remember Kurt Angle/Shane McMahon at KOTR 01?

    • drew

      yeppp.

    • David Jr.

      Shane McMahon’s best match.

      • Xavier

        Agreed

        • David Jr.

          Though his match against Vince at WM X7 was Overbooked Fun.

          • Xavier

            I remember Linda snapping out of her cosmic state lol

          • David Jr.

            The Biggest Pop Linda McMahon ever received.

  • Xavier

    SD seems to always win these battle of the brands PPVs

    • David Jr.

      Raw won the Women’s and Tag Team matches last year.

      • Xavier

        True. Let’s see if they actually win the 5 on 5 match

  • Eleazar Rodriguez

    Does anyone think Shane brought with him his 5 man team.

    • drew

      maybe

  • No One Is Ready for Asuka

  • #PleaseDon’tScrewThisUpWWE

    • Eleazar Rodriguez

      Vince: I make no promises

  • Oh, the music article that is brewing…MWAH HA HA!!!

    • David Jr.

      Piledriver? Please say Piledriver?

      If it’s not Piledriver, Well then:

      If you only knew what I’m gonna do to you, you’d be runnin’ outta here as fast as two feet could carry you. Your destiny … belongs to me! If you only kneeeewww!

      • Yeah, that’s another one. That’s closer to being done…:)

        • David Jr.

          I can’t wait to see what you have to say about the Robbie Dupree classic, Girls in Cars.

          • It’s almost done and will be up tonight. Those first two WWE albums are classic!

          • David Jr.

            I had the Piledriver VHS when I was younger and my brother and I watched that thing so many times.

          • YES! I did too! The videos are AMAZING! I have no clue why they won’t reissue that record on CD.

          • David Jr.

            Everybody here should be made to watch it.

          • They’ll be in the article…LOL!!

  • Asuka is one gorgeous bad A** woman.

  • Xavier

    They had a good match last night

  • This one will be the 1 minute 38 second match I predicted last night.

  • I still say Emma is auditioning for CHiPs 2.

  • Emma is totally and completely gorgeous. She is the entire package. Hopefully, WWE sees that sooner than later.

  • While I dig her tagline, when is she gonna become “The Empress of Today”?

    • CJ Blaze

      Baha. Don’t worry about something logical. That’s absurd.

  • Xavier

    This woman’s revolution is cool and all but nothing they’ve done touches Melina vs Alicia Fox though

    • drew

      oh yea the greatest. lol

    • CJ Blaze

      Let’s keep it that way lol

  • Alexa is the ultimate “mean girl”.

  • Xavier

    Lol Alexa throwing shade at the fans. I love it

  • She. Is. NAILING!!

  • Xavier

    Good promo here

  • David Jr.

    Let’s Have Heath Slater defeat Brock Lesnar in an impromptu match for the Universal title match. Throw in the NXT Champion for Survivor Series. And you thought the Battleground 2016 Shield Triple Threat Match was huge, What about a Champion vs. Champion vs. Champion 3MB Triple Threat match, now wouldn’t that be huge?

  • drew

    awesome

  • I used to dread this. I so don’t anymore…LOL!

  • Mickie just stepped on the title…LOL!!

  • CJ Blaze

    Short, sweet, and to the point.

  • I’m not sure why that happened but…

  • Mickie should have started the chant up then. Missed opportunity.

  • Alicia…ROFL!!!

    • Xavier

      This bratty persona of hers cracks me up

    • CJ Blaze

      Loving it lol

  • drew

    annoying

    • What is?

      • drew

        alicia.

        • You didn’t enjoy that? I thought it was gloriously unhinged! I liked it. “Rock, paper, scissors” killed me.

          • drew

            ive never cared for her tbh.

          • I didn’t either until recently. She’s stepping up. She did well last night and she’s showing more personality finally.

          • drew

            meh.

    • Xavier

      That’s the point. She’s a heel

      • drew

        nah. really? i hadnt noticed. lol i guess

  • Alicia has been around forever but she is only 31.

    • David Jr.

      I wonder what ever happened to DJ Gabriel.

  • Xavier

    Alicia Fox is the black chick who grew up in the suberbs or the valley lol

    • Oh, valley chick all day.

    • S.A.M.

      so she is Stacy Dash from Clueless lol

      • Personally think Dash is prettier, though I hear just as crazy as Foxy acts.

  • David Jr.

    I’m sure Houston is a fine city and all. But I prefer my Survivor Series in Richfield, Ohio on Thanksgiving night.

  • Chrisley = Satan.

    • S.A.M.

      i think Satan would take offense to that comparison

  • Ah, A-minor. Must be Elias.

  • Elias’ timing is phenomenal.

  • NAILED!

  • Xavier

    Lol oh man. The epic diss by Elias

  • drew

    damn lol

  • WWE should give fans Tomatoes to throw at Elias.

    • While it would be great, it would also encourage the fans to throw things like in the AE, and that was a horrible part of the AE.

    • Eleazar Rodriguez

      There’s a chance they’ll keep the tomatoes then throw it at Roman Reigns.

      • I would, but I’m not a nice person sometimes. Well, actually, I’m only mean in my articles, and I always sit in the nosebleed seats. Plus, if it was a fresh tomato, my hubby would eat it before I could throw it.

  • Dry, Elias…Dry.

  • Elias is a Natural Heel. He’s out of the miz mold

    • But so much yummier!

    • David Jr.

      And Michael Cole loves both of them.

  • Eleazar Rodriguez

    It’s Jason Jordan on another mic

  • Xavier

    That Aaron Rogers diss was legendary

    • David Jr.

      I guess I’m a Elias fan now because of it.

      • drew

        ah a bears fan. i remember

        • David Jr.

          No, Lions fan.

          • drew

            oops my bad

  • Everything turned green and I thought DX. I’m now sad.

    • David Jr.

      You can always watch Triple H twerk with New Day to cheer you up.

      • Xavier

        That made my heart smile

      • My hubby actually told me about it earlier today. I’d already seen it, but funny that he knew I’d love it. I’m watching a lot of WWE Network, so I get my DX fix. Though I’m in a DX lull, waiting for HBK to return, his feud for Trip to be over, so I can get back to good DX.

  • Xavier

    Isn’t Cena in “Daddy’s Home 2”. I haven’t seen him in any of the trailers

    • drew

      yupp

      • Xavier

        Strange they haven’t shown him in any of the trailers or maybe I CAN’T SEE HIM

    • Eleazar Rodriguez

      He’s in another movie called rooster blockers.

      • Xavier

        True but he was also in the end of the first Daddy’s Home and was cast in the sequel

        • Eleazar Rodriguez

          I need to watch the first daddy’s home

  • Can Booker PLEASE be gone yet? He was TERRIBLE last night and is on the same header tonight.

  • It just feels so weird to have Graves as a Face commentator.

    • drew

      i could get used to it.

    • Eleazar Rodriguez

      Just think of him as a tweener

  • I wonder if Vince is having Michael and Corey rib Booker repeatedly because of how bad he’s been lately.

  • Xavier

    My issue with JJ/Elias is that both guys aren’t established yet so they can’t really help each other get over

    • CJ Blaze

      Truth

    • Their match last night was sloppy, and this isn’t any better.
      Elias was getting over, and I guess JJ is supposed to be over because he’s ‘Angle’s kid’ but that isn’t at all enough!

  • CJ Blaze

    Graves is dying lol

  • Elias Harness his inner Honky Tonk Man.

  • Xavier

    I’ve figured it out. Booker doesn’t like JJ because JJ is the product of the affair Angle had with his wife Sharmell

  • That bruise is BIG!

    • Elias swung that HARD! I’m normally about three minutes behind as I watch on SlingTV, so I knew the bruise was coming up. That’s sick! It’s already really swollen, and that bruise started to blossom quickly! Yikes!

  • drew

    who cares

  • That is one heck of a welt on JJ’s Arm.

  • Eleazar Rodriguez

    I have a feeling that Brock Lesnar is going to say who is Jinder Mahal never heard of him.

    • Xavier

      lol that definitely would be something Brock would say

  • Oh, how I love Paul Heyman. I just wish I didn’t have to endure Brock to get him.

    • Xavier

      I’ve always felt Heyman was overrated as a manager. Outside of Brock he’s failed miserably to get anybody else over

      • Yeah, but he’s just so good with Brock. I wish he could get others over but you’re right.

        • Xavier

          They’re perfect together like Stockton and Malone

      • David Jr.

        When it comes to managers in wrestling history there’s Bobby Heenan and then everybody else.

  • CJ Blaze

    Cole: “Why is Brock Lesnar here tonight–”
    Say no more.

  • drew

    i really wished lesnar cared. he is reeally good like him or not. but he shouldnt be champ.

  • Xavier

    Did Heyman cut his pony tail?

    • CJ Blaze

      A long time ago xD

      • Xavier

        lol I’m just now noticing

        • CJ Blaze

          I think he last had it 2013 or 14 at the latest.

  • CJ Blaze

    Dang we still have an hour. Tonight is dragging (not necessarily in a bad way though, if that makes sense?)

    • Xavier

      Not a bad episode of RAW but not all that good either

  • Asukalanchian

    I just arrived. So is AJ Styles pretty much now Raw bound?

    • Xavier

      Nah

    • CJ Blaze

      Nope, he’s still SD for now.

  • Xavier

    Oh god, we saw what Orton did to the Singh Brothers just imagine what Brock will do

    • David Jr.

      The same thing he did to 3MB?

      • Xavier

        Maybe even so worse

    • Asukalanchian

      They won’t land til Smackdown if thrown up in the air

  • DESTROYING Jinder!

    • CJ Blaze

      Never thought I’d root for Bork…

      • drew

        same

  • Xavier

    Tongue Twisters lol

  • Xavier

    Heyman referenced the Jericho/Brock confrontation

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Destroy Jinder, Paul E.

  • drew

    welp. i will skip this match. ill find something better to do

    • Xavier

      lol no you wont

      • drew

        yes i will.

      • None of us will. We want to watch Jinder eat suplex.

        • drew

          tempting…

          • C’mon…you know you wanna…LOL! It’ll be a blast. I’m with this totally!

          • drew

            idk.

          • David Jr.

            Will Lesnar vs. Jinder be shorter or longer than Goldberg vs. Lesnar from last year’s Survivor Series?

          • I want SUPLEXES darn it! LOL!!

  • CJ Blaze

    Would’ve been funny if he dropped it..

  • David Jr.

    Brock sure got out of there quickly.

    • bad memories when he tried out for the Vikings

    • Xavier

      They interrupted his dinner

      • David Jr.

        Or he had to sit on the porcelain throne.

  • Asukalanchian

    I wish Big Cass was magically healthy and destroying Enzo

    • Xavier

      Cass wants no part of Enzo. Enzo put him on the shelf for 9 months lol

  • Xavier

    Kalisto with a mic. Here we go lol

  • CJ Blaze

    Well there’s Kalisto’s team.

    • CJ Blaze

      Oh….

  • S.A.M.

    oh look four other people just happened to join him

  • David Jr.

    Why not just do that match at Survivor Series?

  • they found Gran Metalik.

  • Asukalanchian

    I’m shocked no Asuka yet

    • CJ Blaze

      She beat Emma earlier

    • S.A.M.

      you missed her

  • David Jr.

    Trivia Question, Does Anybody Know where Goldberg meet his wife?

    • Asukalanchian

      A movie he was in?

      • David Jr.

        Yes, but do you know what movie?

        • drew

          ready 2 rumble.

          • David Jr.

            No

          • drew

            the longest yard

          • David Jr.

            Santa’s Slay.

        • S.A.M.

          wasnt it that santa movie?

          • David Jr.

            Yes, Santa’s Slay.

          • S.A.M.

            my random movie knowledge prevails again lol.

          • David Jr.

            Of course the Schmoedown fan would know the answer, Maybe you need to challenge Harloff or we can team together to take on the Patriots.

          • S.A.M.

            nah i cant take on the patriots cause im in the Action Army so i want team action to take the titles.

        • according to wiki the set of Santa’s Slay

          • David Jr.

            Yes, that is right.

  • Asukalanchian

    So who do you think will be captain?

  • CJ Blaze

    Why are the Power Puff Girls fighting?

  • Asukalanchian

    Fox would be the the crazy one to leave Asuka off the team

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    I’ve been wishing Alicia was fired for years now.

    I stand by it.

    • David Jr.

      Planning on getting married,and want her to be your wedding planner?

      • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

        Caught me red handed.

  • Alicia really throws herself around and makes this look good!

  • David Jr.

    Sasha idolized Eddie Guerrero growing up.
    Alicia Fox was the wedding planner for Vickie Guerrero’s wedding to Edge.
    So what’s Bayley’s connection to Chavo?

    • drew

      no clue.

    • drew

      did he train her?

      • David Jr.

        I don’t know if there is one, I was making a joke.

        • drew

          ahh thought u were serious.

          • David Jr.

            Ha, nope.

    • She’s Hispanic.

    • CJ Blaze

      Always there, but hardly ever the “it” person?

  • Xavier

    Alicia taking some bumps tonight

  • She is UNHINGED! LOLOLOLOL!!!!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Why does no one know how to ring the bell.

  • I’m sorry but I love Alicia. I just do. Sue me…LOL!!

    • Xavier

      She’s slowly enduring herself to me too

  • CJ Blaze

    I think this is the best Fox has ever been.

  • Xavier

    Wow lol

  • drew

    what???

  • CJ Blaze

    Haaaa

    • CJ Blaze

      Never thought I would say this, but I’m totally okay with Fox as captain.

      • YES!!!

      • drew

        its weird. lol

        • CJ Blaze

          The card is already odd, so the trend might as well continue.

          • drew

            i guess

  • Asukalanchian

    Alicia seems like the kind of girl you would find on Tinder

    • Xavier

      😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 dead

    • Xavier

      Bruh, I legit laughed out loud at this

    • drew

      haaaaa

    • Dude….ROFL!!!!!

  • YESSSSS!!!!!! ROFLROFLROFLROFLROFL!!!!

  • Morgan “The Retro Goat” Hench

    Well. F*ck me I guess.

  • This is DELICIOUS!!!

  • drew

    so dumbfounded

  • Asukalanchian

    Alicia becoming the new Eugene

  • S.A.M.

    i aint even mad cause her as captain will be entertaining lol

  • CJ Blaze

    My guess is Charlotte or Carmella will captain SD.

  • Asukalanchian

    Sasha and Bailey should have double pinned Fox making them co-captains

  • Eleazar Rodriguez

    Does the women’s Money in the Bank specifically says Smackdown Women’s Championship only or just a Woman’s championship match at any time.

    • S.A.M.

      limited to SD

      • Eleazar Rodriguez

        Then to me at Survivor series after the match Carmella Cashes in.

  • David Jr.

    So now that Alicia Fox is the captain, what should their team name be? Crazy Like the Foxes?

    • S.A.M.

      What does the Fox say?

      • I so didn’t need that! Now it will be stuck in my head again! My youngest gets into all those things, so I’m stuck with them in my head for long after she loses interest.

  • Asukalanchian

    OMG yes season finale and hopefully the end of it

  • Oh, the bad dancing…LOL!!!

  • drew

    i love gulak lol

  • The worst thing to happen to Enzo is him losing his voice. His voice is his whole thing.

  • I have fallen in love Drew Gulak. he is such a Goober

  • Stephen Cash

    I just realized you all left me at WNW. LOL. Embarrassing…

    • Asukalanchian

      Welcome home

    • drew

      yoooo.

    • We meant no harm and we’re glad you found us!!

      • Stephen Cash

        I been off for a long time because the writing has been bad, but came back and saw 55 comments total, and was like ummm. Where everyone at?

        • We decided to strike out on our own and try something new. This has been a whole lot of fun!

          • David Jr.

            What Wrestling should be all about, being fun.

          • That’s the thing. I’ve been having so much fun, and the collaboration of the group behind the scenes is one of the most beautiful things I’ve been involved with in a number of years.

    • CJ Blaze

      If we could advertise the news there, we would, buuut… Glad you found us!

  • The salt from Corey is REAL! LOL!!

  • S.A.M.

    Gran Metalik and Kalisto could be lucha dragons 2.0

  • Enzo has his voice. This was “work”. Got it.

  • Stephen Cash

    Wait! Like everyone is here!!! Woot!!!!

    • drew

      yupp

      • Stephen Cash

        Almost seems like everyone made a group decision and I missed it. lol

        • We’re just happy to all be together again! Like…really happy.

        • Asukalanchian

          I was a bit late here too until I messaged The Queen on Twitter

        • I’m sorry! We were not going to be the people who went elsewhere and said where we were, because that’s bad business. We blanketed social media. I have to ask how you found us. I’ve been interested in seeing how people got the word.

    • S.A.M.

      indeed

  • S.A.M.

    so Kurt announcing the Raw team is closing? yeah that smells of SD invasion

    • Xavier

      I’m cool with it

  • Stephen Cash

    This site seems to alreayd be bigger than WNW. COngrats Kendra!

  • Xavier

    You see how high and far Alexander got on that jump

  • Someone told them to give it EVERYTHING!

    • CJ Blaze

      And it sure was nice! I was hooked for once.

  • drew

    the cruiser weights are finally being booked the right way

  • Asukalanchian

    205 wrestlers are definitely upping their game

  • CJ Blaze

    500 comments, woot

  • Stephen Cash

    So who all works here now? I have some catching up to do.

    • CJ Blaze

      Be sure to check out “The Staff” page above 🙂

    • Eleazar Rodriguez

      The best of the best

      • Thank you! We are really trying hard to make this a great place to be.

    • Jeff Jarrett is now running the site.

  • Xavier

    Who will Kurt Angle’s T-Mobile top 5 be?

    • Asukalanchian

      Depends.. Will they use people who perform earlier? But I’m going to say Balor, Wyatt, Strowman, Miz, Reigns

      • Xavier

        Interesting

  • Stephen Cash

    What does “The Royal Fuzz” mean?

    • CJ Blaze

      That indicates the staff members here.

      • Stephen Cash

        Oh. I figured, but then checked the staff page and not all were listed. Sorry.

        • We’re all there. Dre is “Xavier”.

          • Stephen Cash

            Mind Blown…

          • ROFL!!!!

          • Yeah, I wake up each morning and smile because of the great group working here at WR, and because of how so many ‘regulars’ have come here to join us. If there’s anything you think we’re missing, please don’t hesitate to mention it, because we can’t make things better if we don’t know what the readers want.

    • “The Fuzz” is colloquialism for cops.

  • Xavier

    Smackdown invasion. Somebody in here called it

  • time for work

  • Eleazar Rodriguez

    I called it earlier

  • CJ Blaze

    Nakamura on Raw

  • drew

    hmm

  • Stephen Cash

    Brooks is the only one missing!

    • CJ Blaze

      He’s off living the college life right now.

      • Stephen Cash

        Good for him!

  • Xavier

    Kurt Angle had that Bruce Willis look on his face lol

  • CJ Blaze

    This is great

  • David Jr.

    Under Siege, Best Steven Seagal movie.

  • drew

    ooooo boy

  • Xavier

    SD getting lead to a ambush?

  • CJ Blaze

    Oh ****

  • Xavier

    Not Titus!

  • S.A.M.

    Rusev is day one ish

  • Stephen Cash

    They realize Raw as all the top guys, right?

  • CJ Blaze

    SD just turned heel? Lol

    • Xavier

      Lol

  • Poor Apollo….He just became Smackdown food…

  • Xavier

    They should have pitch forks and torches

    • So jealous that you get to write this! I cannot wait to see what you have to say about this episode of Raw. I know you will kill it!

      • Xavier

        All kinds of thoughts are running through my head right now

        • I’m excited. I had so much fun reviewing TLC, and cannot wait to review SD, as well as read what you have to say.

  • CJ Blaze

    The most interesting part is this is week 1 and not the go-home show.

  • Xavier

    Nice way to end RAW

  • Oh, thank goodness. Curt Hawkins. HE’LL SAVE THEM!

  • Asukalanchian

    Watch Strowman destroy them all

  • Xavier

    Reminds me of the 2005 build up of SS

  • Stephen Cash

    Remember last year when WWE promoted SS Raw vs Smackdown Live as “once in a lifetime.’ LOL

  • CJ Blaze

    Gable beat up Jordan!

  • S.A.M.

    loved that Gable was the first to hit JJ

  • drew

    raws turn tommorow.

    • Cannot wait to see what happens on SD. This is what the WWE needed with top names out due to illness. Biggest names on both shows, and so much insanity to build for SS. I’m so excited and happy that the WWE is really stepping it up.

  • David Jr.

    Where’s Randy?

    • S.A.M.

      waiting to RKO someone from out of nowhere

    • Stephen Cash

      Or nakamura, or Mahal, or AJ…

      • David Jr.

        AJ and Nakamura are both, there.

  • Xavier

    It’s a damn lynch mob lol

  • Stephen Cash

    All the top guys on Smackdown are missing…

    • David Jr.

      AJ and Nakamura are there

      • Stephen Cash

        Didn’t see them. Thanks

  • Asukalanchian

    Wait wait guys do we attack the 205 people? Lol

  • S.A.M.

    Carmella going after bestie Bayley

  • Another fight Curt Hawkins lost

  • drew

    theere we go

  • Xavier

    What a great closing segment to RAW

  • drew

    this is awesome.

  • Stephen Cash

    Minus one of the worst booking decisions ever this was a pretty well written raw

    • Which decision was the worst, to you?

      • Balor under Kane?

      • Stephen Cash

        Balor losing to Kane clean. Never should happen.. Especially after the AJ vs Balor hints. Now Balor isn’t in his league.

  • S.A.M.

    if only Raw had a beast of a champion to help them. oh wait

  • “You know who we are…but you don’t know why we’re here”!

  • There was no bad blood, silly…until they wrote it four hours ago.

  • Xavier

    They’re literally walking Angle down to his execution

  • CJ Blaze

    Angle looks SHOOK

  • This was AMAZING!

  • Asukalanchian

    So team Angle vs team Shane

  • drew

    great selling by kurt

    • His FACE THO!!!

    • He’s always been very expressive. From his first time on WWETV, he was fully rounded. He’s not just a great wrestler, he’s a superstar through and through.

  • S.A.M.

    what an ending.
    goodnight everybody

  • Stephen Cash

    I also realized tonight one of Cena or Roman is winning the rumble…

  • drew

    night yall

  • Xavier

    Y’all have a blessed night
