Monday Night Raw (12/25/17)

Will Mickie James binge-watch “The Love Boat” tomorrow?

Will Michael Cole finally develop those pictures of the trip he took to the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1989?

Does every member of the Raw audience know the words to “Only in My Dreams” by Debbie Gibson?

Is Braun Strowman auditioning to become the next face of Axe Body Spray?

None of these questions will be answered on tonight’s edition of “Monday Night Raw”!

 

  • Gator

    hey yo.

  • If it was playing on the radio, I’m sure I could come up with the lyrics to Only In My Dreams, but otherwise, I’m missing most except the chorus.

  • Gator

    Loving my new shield shirt and wwe dvd. now next i want ajs shirt.

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    hey hey hey

    • Gator

      yooo.

      • S.A.M. Action Army

        hey gator

        • Gator

          how are ya?

          • S.A.M. Action Army

            doin good. how are you today?

          • Gator

            thats good. im well.

    • YOUR SAM-NESS!!

      • S.A.M. Action Army

        BOTCH!!! how WONDERFUL to see you

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Hey S.A.M.
      (evil grin)

      • S.A.M. Action Army

        im ready for round 3 lol

        • David “Top 10” Jr.

          You have to wait 3 months.

          • S.A.M. Action Army

            yup. the tackle was worth it though lol

  • Gator

    lets do it.

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    time for RAW

  • John is nothing if not an incredibly nice guy.

    • Gator

      agreed.

  • Gator

    that was cool.

  • John’s bald spot appears to be gone.

  • Gator

    elias!

  • HA!

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    WWE = Walk With Elias.

  • John doesn’t have to do this at all. Kudos.

  • Gator

    woah!

  • SHUT ‘EM DOWN!!

  • U. G. H.

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    Elias is handling this like a vet

  • DEAD. I Have DIED!!!

  • Gator

    i love this.

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    so can we get a title on Elias in 2018?

  • Noemy Galvez

    Is Cena going to sing too?

  • I am shocked WWE permitted Elias to acknowledge the CM Punk chant

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Could a Heel get heat like HBK did in 2005 when Bret Hart’s music played in Montreal, If Cult of Personality hit today?

    • If Cult of Personality hit right now, whoever walks out will be hated!

  • Gator

    oh goodness. goody john cena tonight.

    • Noemy Galvez

      Oh. Joy. 😐

  • Oh, the corn…

  • Gator

    i saw that coming.

    • Noemy Galvez

      Same. Still like it

  • Gator

    elias is a star.

  • CJ Blaze

    Off to an interesting start.

  • Gator

    i like how cena put over elias. thats big for elias.

  • CJ Blaze

    The Revival was stuck on Main Event this week, but considering the holiday, perhaps that’s a good thing. Hopefully Vince isn’t down on them already.

    • I was never terribly impressed with them like everyone else was. I’ll withhold total judgment but as of now, I’m not loving them, honestly.

  • Gator

    wtf booker

  • John is calling the match as it goes. LOL!!

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Do you people agree or disagree that AJ Styles vs. John Cena at the Royal Rumble was the WWE match of 2017?

    • CJ Blaze

      I agree.

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      main roster wise yes. if we include NXT, Bate vs Dunne 2 is my match of the year

    • Gator

      welll. its up there. theres been plenty of other good ones as well. ill say yes.

    • Disagree. That honor, for me, goes to Tyler Bate vs. Pete Dunne from last week. It obliterated everything else I’ve seen this year.

  • Booker just incorrectly quoted Public Enemy. Get Adamle STAT!

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Rocco Rock and Johnny Grunge?

  • John got that STRUNPH!!!

  • Gator

    i hope elias wins. hes gonna need some good wins to continue his momentum.

  • Asukalanchian

    Let’s go Cena!

  • Asukalanchian

    Even if Cena wins it’s not going to affect in a bad way Elias as he’s looking stronger than ever

    • Gator

      nah but elias could use this big w. cena doesnt.

  • Asukalanchian

    Ride with Elias

  • Nice stuff!

  • Booker has to be doing this on purpose now.

  • Asukalanchian

    What were they chanting?

    • Gator

      this is boring.

  • Gator

    what….. that was a bit too quick.

  • The outcome makes sense but Elias has ZERO to be ashamed of.

    • Gator

      that felt a little too quick.

  • Gator

    im not convinced really elias is getting a good push until he has some good wins for him.

  • Gator

    i hope they arent leading for these two to team.

  • Gator

    nooooooo.

  • Noemy Galvez

    I don’t like this

    • Gator

      i dont either.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Well Raw is already better this week than last week.

  • Asukalanchian

    Kind of hope Joe wins

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    How many weeks before Hideo Itami is injured again?

    • 2!

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      who gets injured first, Hideo or The Revival?

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        Well Hideo Itami gets injured more, Revival takes turns.

    • Actually, he injured himself and recovered from the time Kendrick’s promo began until he came out.

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        Hideo Itami injuries are the new Big Show turns.

  • CJ Blaze

    I’m ready for a GTS in Chicago.

  • Noemy Galvez

    Predictions for these two matches? I’d like to see Seth turn on Jordan to teach him a lesson and Roman retain in some sort of controversial way.

    • Gator

      yep. i think joe should eventually beat reigns.

      • Noemy Galvez

        I do too, but not yet. I’m enjoying these open challenge matches

    • Asukalanchian

      I wonder how long Sheamus will keep going with his neck. I want Joe to win

  • The gift of Jericho

    Since its Christmas, let’s remember the greatest gift Vince Russo ever gave us. The Silent Night Bloody Night match featuring the infamous Barbed Wire Christmas tree. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bd7bbe35d6592640b0a8911846f1ac6eeae4b348ff9d6879e94a4885ec7c94bf.jpg

  • Gator

    im curious. is ittami a heel? saying you have to respect me is not really a face thing to say.

    • He just…is.

    • Noemy Galvez

      In Chicago, he might be, seeing as he uses the GTS

      • S.A.M. Action Army

        but even Chicago knows Hideo did it first

        • Noemy Galvez

          Just because he did it first doesn’t mean they’ll like it

          • S.A.M. Action Army

            i think he did it in NXT when they were in Chicago when he fought for the NXT title and they popped for it.

    • CJ Blaze

      He’s in the face role, but still playing his heel character. I don’t think they know what they’re doing with him yet.

  • I can’t wait for Hideo to hit the GTS.

  • Not much of a match, really.

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      which is pretty much what the cruiserweight division has been since it came back

      • They usually turn in far better matches than that. This was just a quickie bit of nothing.

        • S.A.M. Action Army

          true

  • BlazeKing

    He really took that knee

  • Shameless plug: A new video cast concerning the women’s “Royal Rumble” and the women’s division in general is on its way very soon. It’s been recorded and I just have to edit it.

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      woohoo

  • Noemy Galvez

    This video package gives me goosebumps

  • BlazeKing

    I love how they left out the Divas title from the CoC championship collage for the matchup transition

  • I love that I called the announcement 10 minutes before it happened.

    • Gator

      i knew it was coming.

  • Lita, Kelly Kelly, and Beth Phoenix have apparently been spoken to about appearing in the match. FYI.

    • Gator

      hmm.

      • I wish they wouldn’t do it but they have to. Make it as big as possible.

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      Lita yay! Beth yay! kelly kelly meh…

    • BlazeKing

      I hope Beth comes back.

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Kelly Kelly is only 30 years old.

    • Noemy Galvez

      I’d prefer Lita, Trish, Victoria and Ivory. These women paved the way

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Who can be like Bob Backlund in the 1993 Royal Rumble in the Women’s Rumble?

  • Gator

    oh my lol.

  • These 2 are total goobers and I love it.

  • Gator

    the crowd is eating it up.

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    Merry Mizmas indeed

  • BlazeKing

    Bayley’s face lol

  • Gator

    im beginning to love those two.

    • Noemy Galvez

      Same

  • Mickie had no idea what to do….LOL!

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      but laugh lol

  • Gator

    if you cant succeed you fail. hmm i didnt know that.

  • CJ Blaze

    I understand the women are probably moving away from the holiday dress-up thing, but I’m kinda sad they’re not doing it.

  • I miss the Slammy awards.

    • Gator

      did they get rid of them?

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      The two best things to ever happen on the Slammys. Vince singing Stand Back and Owen Hart.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Paige has been back for a month, and this is what the 9000th time we’ve had this match?

    • CJ Blaze

      Tribute To The Troops was the first time, and it half happened last week.

  • Forgive me but I’m pretty tired of Mickie by this point. Her feud with Alexa was better than it should have been but I’m kinda over her now.

  • Completely forgot Raw was on, didn’t even realise what day it was. Is this live or pre-taped?

  • GOOD NIGHT!!!

  • That CLOTHESLINE tho!!!

  • Sasha Banks is gonna need to find her head. Sonya knocked it into next year.

  • With all these women call ups and a rumble on the way, I hope we get a women’s tag title soon after.

    • If it gets enough depth, I’m all for it too.

      • If they don’t so many great talents will get lost in the shuffle without anything to do.

        • Asukalanchian

          Kay and Royce should be the 1st to win it also

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            Nikki and Brie, oh wait Mitch isn’t here.

          • He’d KILL!!!

          • 100% they’re the perfect pair. I’d love it WrestleMania them vs Bayley & Sasha (if they don’t do the 4 Horsewomen) winning the titles and turning Sasha heel.

  • Fun fact: Paige has been wrestling since she was 13.

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      She’s been in a ring before she was born!

      • As discussed on the Stone Cold Podcast.

        • David “Top 10” Jr.

          Also they mention it all the time in WWE 2K games.

    • She’s also from Norwich UK

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Oh by the way,
    Happy Apollo Creed Vengeance Day!

  • Just to be clear, Dean was NOT injured in that match. The match and the stuff around it was used to explain a prior injury for which he needed surgery.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    I was thinking at 9 EST we’d get our first commercial.

    • It’s not stopped the UK from having adverts, which has been annoying.

  • Joe is just STELLAR!

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    Samoa Joe is just so awesome on the mic

  • I miss the days when matches had time limits and matches would end because the time limit hit.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    I want Rob Bartlett to make an appearance at the Manhattan Center.

  • Asukalanchian

    I wonder if we see Taker

    • CJ Blaze

      In about a month at Raw 25.

  • BlazeKing

    Anybody notice Kane does the Undertaker ring-in now?

    • Gator

      wat do u mean

  • ONE MAN BAND!!!!

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    The people that are here, did you watch the first Raw or were you not born yet?

    I watched it.

    • Gator

      93 right?

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        Yes

    • My dad and I watched it.

    • Gator

      nope i wasnt born.

    • I’m really old so…

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        I was 11 years old when the first Raw aired.

        • I…ahem…wasn’t…LOL!! I was just out of high school.

          • Yeah, yeah, we are old. Though, because I missed a year of school, I was a year older than most of my class. And knowing approximately when your birthday falls, I have to wonder if we were the same year, or if we were off by a year, or even two!

          • I graduated in 1992.

          • Or we graduated the same year! So, did you attend your 25th? I attended mine the week before my birthday this past summer.

          • Nah. Didn’t bother. Good riddance to bad rubbish. I knew what I wanted to do with my life and was already doing it by my senior year. I had no use for my high school so it means little, honestly.

          • I saw some people I really needed to see, but otherwise, I didn’t care about most of it.

        • I was 4 years old almost 5 years old.

      • And I’m a few months older. I didn’t have cable in college, so I was stuck watching recap shows on Sunday. Not just that, but I woke up early on Sundays, plugged in my headphones to not wake up the roommie or my boyfriend (who I’m still friends with on FB)).

        • David “Top 10” Jr.

          you have 2 ) so I thought one was an I, so I thought you had a friend in the FBI at first.

          • Watching Dr. Who and not paying enough attention to my typing. Sorry!

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            You didn’t do anything wrong, I just need to read better.

          • And I need to pay more attention.

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      i remember watching wwe by that point but unsure if i caught the first raw

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        I remember it because Bobby Heenan trying to get into the show.

        • YES!!!! LOL!!!

        • I love Brain’s part in that first episode. Also broke my heart that Andre passed right around then and never made it to Raw.

  • Heath Slater is going to wake up after Kane destroys him and think he’s Pelvis Wesley again.

  • CJ Blaze

    Kane just jingled Heath’s bells.

  • Gator

    any one besides me and cj under the age of thirty here ? haha

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      im 29 so i barely am lol

      • Gator

        lol.

    • CJ Blaze

      … Or is anyone else under 20? Heh.

      • Gator

        ha.

    • I am 30…..

      • Gator

        right on the edge.

    • Noemy Galvez

      Here! 25

      • Gator

        nice 23 here.

  • YES!!! THE STREAK!!!!

  • Gator

    what the fudge.

  • Not as many arms went up on that one.

  • I think we would see Hawkins die from surprise if he actually won against Balor.

    • Asukalanchian

      On the 11pm news. Arena burned down in mass rage by wrestling fans

  • This THEME tho!!

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      perfection

  • CJ Blaze

    Glad Finn is straying away from wearing just black.

  • Points for Booker for Dusty Wolfe reference.

  • Noemy Galvez

    Honestly, I forgot Curt was still employed…

    • I do that each time he appears.

  • Curt Hawkins is the new Barry Horowitz. I LOVE it!

  • Gator

    this match is OVER.

  • Curt Hawkins IS OVER!!!

  • THERE we go. More arms!

  • Gator

    theres got to be more for something to do for finn then this crap.

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      have to wait for him to be OVER for something to happen

      • Gator

        hes already OVER

        • Asukalanchian

          No no we are delusional. He’s terrible and boring and can’t wrestle

        • That’s the point. VKM is so out of touch in thinking Balor isn’t over, but we see it each week.

          • Gator

            hes old and naive.

          • Asukalanchian

            But sadly he’s the boss

          • Gator

            unfortunately.

          • Delusional and won’t let go, even though Trip has more than proven that he can run a better promotion that VKM.

          • Playing Devil’s Advocate (though that position really belongs to Paul Heyman) Is Finn really over or is Finn’s Entrance over?

          • Gator

            both.

          • Finn is over. His entrance is great, but he also backs it up. I think VKM has lost it when it comes to certain guys, and Balor is one who is getting screwed over. I still think much of it has to do with the success of NXT. But not an argument I want to get into tonight.

  • If you have not seen Tyler Bate vs. Pete Dunne from last week’s “NXT”, DO IT! It’s THAT good!

    • CJ Blaze

      I tried warning everyone. 🙂

      • It was just STELLAR! I’ve never seen a match quite like that. Just…WOW!

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      their NXT Chicago match is my MOTY so i will have to check their latest encounter out

      • You WON’T be sorry.

        • S.A.M. Action Army

          i already know it will deliver, the crazy thing is both are so young and have so many more of these matches they can give us

  • Goldy laughed…LOL!!!

  • Noemy Galvez

    Goldust is still employed too? Where have I been?

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    i want Goldust vs Velveteen Dream

    • Agreed! Possibly with Orlando Jordan on a pole, but I’m a glutton for punishment.

      • After the rumors coming out about OJ. That is really being Glutton for Punishment.

        • Okay, OJ from when he was with the WWE, not him now. In fact, if I ever see him again it will be too soon.

    • I just want the Velveteen Dream to return. Where IS he?

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        Playing up his injury angle on NXT?

        • When was he injured?

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            I don’t know if he was injured, but he was suppose to be in the NXT tournament for the #1 contender for the NXT title and Regal said he was injured and Johnny Gargano took his spot.

          • I don’t think he was injured at all. He just…poofed!

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            I don’t either, but they were using it as a storyline to get Johnny Gargano into the #1 contender match.

  • He Regifted the DVD!!! LOL

  • TITUS….ROFL!!!

  • Gator

    lmao!

  • Asukalanchian

    Secretary Dana Brooke is on fire

  • Noemy Galvez

    That whole segment was gold!

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Sister Abigail was in the previous segment.

  • Asukalanchian

    Your fireflies are jobbers too

  • DELETE!!

  • Gator

    DELETE

  • Your Christmas Gift is a Woken Matt Hardy

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    What does Woken Matt need the most, Senor Benjamin, Vanguard 1 or Reby playing the piano?

    • ALL OF IT!!!!

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        I agree he needs all, but what does he need the most?

    • Gator

      Vangaurd 1.

  • Noemy Galvez

    This is going to be fun! #delete

  • Asukalanchian

    Can’t believe they cut away from it

    • Noemy Galvez

      Seriously! This encounter was what we’ve all been looking forward to for weeks!!

  • WE DON’T JUST BEAT THE DAR! #UpUpDownDown

  • Noemy Galvez

    Hearing Cesaro talk with his mouth guard on is hilarious

  • The Cruiserweights get the Christmas Themed Street Fight. Cool

  • Gator

    ambrose out 9 months 🙁

    • Asukalanchian

      I say 6. You can trust me.. I’m a WebMD doctor lol

    • CJ Blaze

      Who said that?

      • Asukalanchian

        They said it toward the start of Raw

        • Noemy Galvez

          Michael said up to 9 months, didn’t he?

    • They said it on TV

      • Gator

        oh yea wasnt paying attention lol.

  • Asukalanchian

    Oh how I wish we had Cass Claus show up to get rid of the imposter Santa

    • Noemy Galvez

      When is he scheduled to return?

      • Asukalanchian

        No clue I hope in the next 3-4 months

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Xanta Claus from the South Pole?

  • Enzo should really be dressed as The Grinch…

  • will it be too much to ask for Cedric to get his moment on Raw next week?

  • Asukalanchian

    I wonder where TJ Perkins has been

    • out injuried.

    • You do? LOL!!

      • Asukalanchian

        I do even though I still think he lacks charisma. Maybe he out trying to find it and that is why he’s been gone still

        • In that case, he’ll be looking a while. Here’s hoping he finds the cure for “dead face”.

        • David “Top 10” Jr.

          He could dress up as a video game character from a WWE Video game.

    • CJ Blaze

      Creative apparently has nothing for him.

  • Ali did the X-factor better than X-Pac could ever dream of doing it.

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Muhammad Ali?

      • Mustafa Ali.

        • David “Top 10” Jr.

          I know

          • I still maintain Muhammad Ali should be in the WWE Hall Of Fame.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            I’m fine with Celebrities in the WWE Hall of Fame, but people like Cyndi Lauper, Muhammad Ali and Andy Kaufman should be in and not Arnold and Drew Carey.

            Mr. T is in and should be.

          • ALL of this!

  • Cedric THO!!!

  • I truly hate this angle.

  • CJ Blaze

    Thank goddess for Alexa

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    thank you Alexa

  • Alexa had perfect timing there to wisk away her princess.

  • BlazeKing

    Liv Morgan would not have been happy lol

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      her and Enzo broke up

    • CJ Blaze

      I don’t think they’re together anymore.

      • BlazeKing

        Don’t matter haha

  • Gator

    damn it alexa

  • They really need a new IC title. That strap has had it.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    This isn’t the main event? Rollins and Jordan are winnning the Tag Team Championship tonight, aren’t they?

    • CJ Blaze

      Guess so. At least I kinda hope. I’m down for it.

    • Gator

      please no.

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        You don’t want to see the Champ and Dick Wellington as tag team champions?

    • I just want Sheamus to take care of himself so I’d be cool with it too.

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    Joe’s walk to the ring is just so clear of i am here to beat people up and there is nothing anybody can do about it

  • The way Roman carries the title is no worse to me than the way Pete Dunne carries the UK title in his teeth, or Rock and Austin literally dragging their titles while walking to the ring.

  • Noemy Galvez

    So, the tag team titles mach is going to be the main event? I would have done it backwards, tag titles match now, Roman vs. Joe as the main event

    • I understand why. This match is needed in this slot to deal with Monday Night Football.

    • Better story told with the tag team match.

      • Noemy Galvez

        I just don’t want Rollins to be stuck with Jordan.

        • I’m sure he will be. There’s no Ambrose now. Could be fun.

          • Gator

            doubtful when fans are booing him all the time.

          • I’m twisted so I’m all for it.

          • Gator

            ugh lol.

          • Noemy Galvez

            I don’t want to be pessimistic, but it worked with Ambrose because of their history. Seth and Jason literally got thrown together today. Just my opinion. Plus, the crowd hates Jason and loves Rollins.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan have history. Huge History Jordan is the first person to ever defeat Seth Rollins………………………………………………
            …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………in Madden.

          • Noemy Galvez

            😐😑

          • #DickWellingtonForLife

        • Gator

          i dont want him to be partners with him either/

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    southpaw right hand jab lol

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Can Andrew Ghai spear Booker T?

      • S.A.M. Action Army

        hahaha

  • SHUT UP, BOOKER!

  • Sir Mitch

    Hey guys, sorry I couldn’t be with you today.
    Stay tuned for a new episode of Royalty In The Round soon.
    Happy Holidays!

  • This is a fun match.

    • Noemy Galvez

      This is why I want Roman to keep the strap for a bit more. These open challenge matches are the best I’ve seen from him.

      • Some of Cena’s best matches in recent history were his US Championship Open Challenge matches.

        • Noemy Galvez

          I may be biased, but I think Roman’s have been better

          • I think you are too… 😉

          • Noemy Galvez

            Don’t get me wrong, Cena’s matches were great, but still…

          • Gator

            give me the cena open challenges over romans.

          • I would agree but I’m bias too.

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        Roman should keep it all the way to Wrestlemania. Reigns vs. Lesnar can be like Warrior vs. Hogan.

        • Gator

          nah give it to joe so he can have a chance with it.

  • They’re telling a really nice story here.

  • OHH a man Joe’s size shouldn’t do things like that. DANG that was insane`

  • Reigns is selling this really well.

  • Roman lost his mind and got DQ’d. that is an excellent way to keep the title on him but not hurt Joe.

    • Noemy Galvez

      I agree. This is what I wanted

  • Roman’s favorite song must be Johnny Cash’s I Walk The Line. because he likes to walk the line between Face and Heel.

  • NICE STUFF!

  • it took Jamie Noble to stop the Big Dog.

  • CJ Blaze

    Jordan won his first SD Tag Title a year ago on 12/27 in Chicago. It’ll be interesting to see what happens tonight.

  • Jason Jordan is so Arrogant. He is just begging for that heel turn. (which probably happens tonight.)

    • It’s already happened for all intents and purposes.

      • Gator

        not officially no.

        • What’s officially? Everyone hates him; he’s heel.

          • Gator

            techincally hes not a heel.

          • He’s not even really being booked as a face though. He’s kind of booked in-between.

          • Gator

            hes about to turn but not quite there.

          • I kinda like it like that. He doesn’t really need a full-on heel turn.

          • Gator

            nah i think he does. his face character isnt working at all.

          • He’s not a face character. We all hate him just like we’re supposed to.

          • Gator

            uhh alrighty. lol nah once hes fully heel i think he will take off.

          • Oh c’mon. He’s already got everyone hating him. Heel turns are…to make you hate people. No need to bother…though I’m sure they’ll do it much harder when he turns on Kurt. THAT will be fun.

          • Gator

            i just want to see him insult the audience or well turn on kurt like you said. ill even take him attacking seth

          • I can definitely go with that! I’m just not sure we really need it. I really want him to turn on Kurt. Oh, the ammunition. They can do the “you weren’t even there when I was a kid” or they can do the “I fooled you, I’m not your kid” route. Both would be fun.

          • Gator

            oooo i hope its the latter!

          • YES!!!!!

          • Gator

            SI! SI! SI!

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            Is Finlay, his real dad?

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            I remember John Cena saying in an interview recently the WWE is split into two audiences, the Older audience and the younger/family audience, and they tend to like different things, So WWE won’t have true faces or heels, now.

          • There’s no need anymore. That’s not life.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            I agree. That’s why, like Xavier/Dre, I’m against turning Roman Heel, because the people who want to turn him heel already boo him.

          • He’s already heel because people hate him. It’s already done.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    If Rollins and Jordan win the Tag Team Titles, Jason Jordan will be the first person to hold the NXT, Raw and Smackdown Tag Team Titles.

  • this is one Santa you don’t want coming down the chimney

  • The Universal Championship might as well be the United States Championship Corey.

  • Poor Cold Beer…

    • S.A.M. Action Army

      bad enough he didnt get any Raw support for the Madden Finals and now this

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    man i love Strowman

  • CJ Blaze

    My Blissmas– er, Christmas, included: Twisted Bliss shirt, Shield shirt, Bliss elf ornament, Ric Flair/Charlotte book.

    • Gator

      nice. i have the shield shirt too. wearing it now.

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      I got the Ric/Charlotte book, too. Also Jericho’s 4th book, the NXT book and the WWE rules book.

      • CJ Blaze

        I’ve finished the NXT book, but am in the middle of Jericho’s new one. I also need to finish AJ Lee’s and read Justin Roberts’. It’s been a good year for wrestling books.

        • David “Top 10” Jr.

          I love Jericho’s first 3 books, is it as good as his first 3?

          • CJ Blaze

            Admittedly, I’ve only read the third. So far, I love the fourth. My favorite part is his major life lesson in each chapter.

  • This was an EPIC swerve!

  • 1-2-3 Kid was incredible with Scott that night!

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      That was one of the best early Raws. Besides 1-2-3 Kid defeating Scott Hall. Marty Jannetty also returned that night to win the the IC Title from Shawn Michaels. Might be Marty Jannetty’s best match in WWE history.

    • Asukalanchian

      Believe he was the Lightning Kick Kid before that

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        That night, he was just the Kid.

  • BlazeKing

    I watched this match, live. That’s why I’m forever watching Raw…

  • I dearly love Alexa Bliss.

  • Gator

    shes the best.

  • THE QUEEN OF EVERYTHING!!!

  • BlazeKing

    Oooooooooooooh…

  • CJ Blaze

    Asuka vs. Bliss at the Rumble and then Asuka (c) vs. Paige (or something) at Mania?

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    Goddess meet Empress. Empress meet Goddess. NO ONE IS READY FOR ASUKA!!!!

  • My goodness is Asuka a beautiful woman.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Not this year, but Wrestlemania 35, I want Asuka vs. Charlotte and if they build it right, I could see it being the first Woman’s match to main event a Wrestlemania.

    • CJ Blaze

      Ooo I would definitely be okay with that. I want the first women’s Mania main event to feel natural and well-built.

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        Let Asuka rule Raw and Charlotte rule Smackdown, but every joint PPV they have run-ins to tease the match. Then 2019 Royal Rumble have Asuka or Charlotte win the 2nd Women’s Royal Rumble and switch shows and challenge the other person, who’s their show’s champion.

  • BlazeKing

    Lexxy was having NXT flashbacks hahaha

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    Asuka is so awesome. says only a few words but her body language and facial expressions add so much more that she only needs a few words

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    BURN IT DOWN!!!!!

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Is Dean’s injury really a 9 month injury or a WWE 9 month injury, so he can return early and they can say how he returned from a 9 month injury in 5 months?

  • So Booker doesn’t like Jason again?

    • BlazeKing

      Goddamn, I want Otunga back…

      • I’d LOVE Coachman to come back.

        • BlazeKing

          Anybody! I dun had it with Booker, man.

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        No, all we need is 2 men teams. Cole and Graves on Raw, Phillips and Saxton on Smackdown.

  • Shut up, Booker.

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      What about a WWE show with the announce team of Mauro Ranallo and Booker T?

    • BlazeKing

      Southpaw right-handed jab, my dude.

  • Gator

    yeah im really feeling jason turns on seth heres. then they feud for a while

    • I’d rather he turned on Kurt if it’s on anyone, honestly. Turning on Seth is diminishing returns. Turning on Kurt will be epic.

      • Gator

        just telling what my gut says. but i get it.

      • Gator

        nah id have him walk out on seth.

  • Cesaro…TALKS TOO MUCH!!

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Almost 500 comments on Christmas? Impressive!

    • Didn’t see THAT coming!

    • Gator

      thats what we do! in my mark henry voice.

  • That might have been the most heel thing Sheamus has ever done.

  • The story here is being told so well. Seth gets sympathy points for this.

  • That was a receipt for Jason Jordan for that Clothesline form earlier Jordan gave.

  • STELLAR match.

  • Jason Jordan is a very strong guy. he might challenge Cesaro for the P4P strongest man title in wwe

  • CJ Blaze

    YAY

  • New Champions!

  • YES!!!!

  • Noemy Galvez

    Ugh…

  • Gator

    why…

  • Team Hell No 2.0

  • BlazeKing

    Say WHAAAAA?!

  • Jason really is one heck of a worker and I’m honestly happy for him.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Jason Jordan is now the first man to hold the NXT, Smackdown and Raw Tag Team Championship.

  • Gator

    ahh i can see how dean turns when he gets back. dont agree wth this tho.

  • Noemy Galvez

    Jordan is going to get a big head saying he picked up the win cuz he pinned Cesaro. I see it already

  • Great way to end “Raw”. I like this! This’ll be fun!

  • I’m prefectly fine with that.

  • Great night here! Thanks so much to all you for coming. Who knew this’d be so much fun! See you guys tomorrow night!

  • S.A.M. Action Army

    this was fun
    see y’all tomorrow for SD
    goodnight and Merry Christmas everybody!!!

  • Gator

    welp that was meh. it is what it is. i guess this is how dean will turn then? you replaced me etc

    • It’s 9 months out. Who knows?

      • Gator

        i do. i always know.

        • LOL!!!

          • Gator

            you dont want to see dean as a heel?

          • I like him either way. That’s how great he is. It’s just too far out to book anything with him.

          • Gator

            welll im booking ahead obvious.

          • Noemy Galvez

            I don’t know if it will go over. Dean is really over with the crowd.

  • Noemy Galvez

    This was interesting. See y’all tomorrow night!
