Monday Night Raw (1/1/18)

Does Jason Jordan shop at Bed Bath & Beyond?

Will Alicia Fox ever find the perfect moisturizer?

Does Cathy Kelley run on fuses or a circuit breaker?

Will Primo and Epico accept their new job offers on the WWE merch staff selling commemorative Dana Brooke spatulas?

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

  • For the first time EVAH! I am FIRST!

  • Sir Mitch

    I just want to say from everyone behind the scenes here at WR…thank you!
    Thank you from following us to our new home and joining us in this journey.
    2017 will forever be known as the year Royalty came to the world of pro wrestling news and opinion, and we have you guys to thank.
    We wish you all Happy New Year!

  • S.A.M. Plus Ultra!!!

    Happy New Year everybody!!!

  • I asked the hubby to put a strawberry soda in the fridge or freezer to cool it down. We decided putting it outside would be smarter as it’s -12 out there right now.

    Mitch and I have been going back and forth over weather lately as he’s in the middle of the Aussie summer and the north east of the US is BLEEPING freezing.

    Anyone actually enjoying the weather of 2018?

    • Mat D

      in a weird perverse way, I live in Connecticut (New England) and it hasn’t gotten above 25 degrees for the better part of 2 weeks

      • I’m in Maine. We haven’t seen 10 above in almost that long. It’s been crazy! Normally I refuse to leave the house when it’s under 15, but I’ve been sucking it up and going out when I absolutely have to. The worst I’ve seen, personally, when I was outside, was -16.

  • Mat D

    Hi, Im new…I like cookies, reading, and not Jason Jordan

    • So you’re like Booker on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, he’s a fan. Anyway, welcome!

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        I love Tuesdays with Booker. A story about WWE Announcer Booker T recounts the time spent with his 78-year-old veteran, Booker T.

    • Nice of you to join us. I have to ask how you found us. All the writers here have worked together for quite a while, but Wrestle Royalty is a rather new site, so we’re asking how everyone has found us.

      • Mat D

        Twitter, and Ive been on this weird quest to try and find different voices in the wrestling space (aside from the normal fantasy booking neckbeard who thinks he knows better)

        be it minorities, women, drag queens (yes there is a review show with drag queens that talk wrestling)

        • We are quite diverse here. Heck, I’m a mom of 4 from Maine and have been writing about wrestling for 15 years. if you check out our Royalty in the Round you will see how diverse those of us backstage here are. But beyond that, we are the safe/nice corner of the IWC, and work hard to stay that way. We have a member of the group that’s transitioning, and no one has batted an eye. The support has been heartwarming.

          So I hope you enjoy our little corner, we work hard and have a lot of fun.

          • Mat D

            My father lived in Belfast for near 20 years and I have a good friend that lives in Searsmont (owns some land out there)

          • Both lovely spots. Belfast isn’t too far away. I live close to Augusta, so I’m not close too a lot, but also not far away from most – other than the top half of the state, and I have little reason to be there.

        • Sir Mitch

          Happy you found us!
          Please feel free to spread the word.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    In the words of Detroit Sports Writer, Bob Wojnowski, who nobody here would know who that is.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

    • I just have to ask how cold it’s been there, and how much snow you have. It’s been insane here.

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        Not -12, but for the last 10 days we’ve been the teens or lower. We also have had snow, but the only major snow we’ve had the last 10 days was Christmas Eve.

        • You got it on Christmas Eve, we got it Christmas day. We actually pushed Christmas to Tuesday for my family so no one had to travel in the foot or more we got.

          Hopefully the gulf stream changes a bit and gives us a less freezing winter of 2018!

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            The weather here is affected by the Great Lakes.

          • Yes, but it’s also affected by how the gulf stream crosses the country. If it comes from the arctic and down we get more cold weather than if it dips south and comes back up. You have more temperate weather, but also more snow and other weather craziness because of the Great Lakes. We have more temperate weather, sometimes more snow, and sometimes more craziness because we are so close to the ocean.

  • Sir Mitch

    Showtime!

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Eric Young’s debuting tonight?

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        Or Sting’s returning.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Why would you do Asuka vs. Alexa Bliss, tonight?

    • Mat D

      because why not? its not for the title

      and I want to see Asuka kick her face into the Atlantic

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        Save it for Wrestlemania.

    • Because no one is back to watching the WWE until next week?

      Just a thought.

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        I know I haven’t been watching for the past month because of the holidays. Tonight is my first live RAW/SmackDown in weeks.

        • I get it. I missed the Christmas Raw myself, and then watched Sd on Hulu.

  • Sir Mitch

    So…is Roman losing the IC title here?

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      At first I’d say no, but then I thought have Samoa Joe win the title, hold the title until Wrestlemania and have him face Braun Strowman at WM for the IC title. But, I’m still saying no.

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    AYOOOOO! Myrtle in DA Royal House

    • Sir Mitch

      Happy you’re here!

      • Wow, typo!

        • Sir Mitch

          Shut up LOL!

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            You do have a typo.

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            Fail. You may see yourself out. xD

          • HA!!!!!

          • Only because I care. Okay, because it’s hysterical too.

    • Yay! Been missing you!

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        Sorry I haven’t been in. Been crazy with holidays. Haven’t had time to watch Raw or Smackdown live.

        • Totally get it. I didn’t know JJ and Rollins won the straps last week. Totally need to go back and watch that Raw.

  • Jordan’s not doing so well in there crowd-wise.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Jason Jordan is the Raw Tag Team Champions, Chad Gable is in a tag team with Shelton Benjamin, so why did they break up American Alpha?

    • Because I’d rather have Shelton than Jason.

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        I disagree. I want Shelton to get a solo run.

        • I am finally getting over my issues with Shelton, and I think his chemistry with Gable is really growing. So, for the first time I have something to say about Shelton other than wanting him to leave, and I really want to see what he and Gable can do first.

        • I’d love that too! Still, this isn’t a bad way to start.

    • Noemy Galvez

      #WWElogic

  • Noemy Galvez

    Soooo, do Seth and Jason lose their rematch or no?

    • Sir Mitch

      Hmm, maybe!

      • Noemy Galvez

        That little talk Seth gave Jordan just now indicates yes, right?

        • Sir Mitch

          Yep

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    BURN IT DOWN! I’m a bit behind, btw. I’m watching on Youtube TV. Cable went down. 🙁

    • Sir Mitch

      Think your only a minute behind!

  • Xavier

    What’s good everybody?

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    So.. They’re definitely going to turn Jordan heel soon, right? They have to.

    • Sir Mitch

      Apparently, they may be putting the breaks on it for now!

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        Dislike. Unfriended. Unsubscribed. DELETE! Jordan is an AWFUL face. What good reason do they possibly have for holding on it?

        • He’s already a heel because we don’t like him.

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            Ehhhhhh.

          • Sir Mitch

            I’ve never bought that argument.
            Difference between heel heat and we hate your booking heat!

          • Not here. We don’t like him….so he’s heel.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            But who now a days gets Heel Heat? The =adult crowd tend to cheer the heels.

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            I agree to a degree. If you’re booking him a certain way because you know fans will hate it, but still buy it. That’s a baby heel. (a.k.a Cena heat) If you’re booking someone and it’s getting heat unintentionally, that’s no bueno. That isn’t a heel. That’s just a poorly booked face.

          • Sir Mitch

            Would you classify someone like Jordan or Roman as a poorly booked babyface?

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            Jordan is 100% poorly booked for what he can offer. He just doesn’t have the personality for what they want from him. They need to pull that trigger and let him display the whiny personality we have seen glimpses of.

            As for Roman, I’m back and forth. I would say a lot of earlier stories he had, were very poorly booked. Starting with the 2015 Royal Rumble moving forward.

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        Unless it’s different where you are, I think you want brakes, not breaks.

        • Wow, Mitch, you’re struggling tonight. Relax, it happens. You’ve grown so much that these are just blips.

          • Sir Mitch

            I’m doing three things at once so…

          • I know that. That’s why I poke kindly.

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      What is a heel, though? Someone the crowd hates? So wouldn’t that make Jason Jordan a heel already?

      • THANK YOU!

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        Using my John Cena logic, I see. It’s different though. Jordan would be such an amazing whiny, crybaby. I want them to embrace that.

        • Agreed!

        • He will. Just give it time. It’s GOTTA happen.

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            Until then, it’s just cringey and painfully boring to watch. I don’t want to watch Jordan attempt to do the Cena thing. It doesn’t work for him. He just doesn’t have that charisma.

  • Xavier

    JJ seemed really comfortable on the mic in that segment

  • Xavier

    Were they chanting Booker T at JJ?

  • Xavier

    JJ ain’t no joke when he steps in between those ropes

    • Sir Mitch

      He is very very good!

      • Yeah, not digging the two of you agreeing. This won’t work for me at all. 🙂

        • It is unnerving!

          • Xavier

            LMAO

          • RIGHT? LOL!! There is a GREAT disturbance in The Force.

          • Xavier

            LOL yall killing me

          • Sir Mitch

            PLEASE no Star Wars references.
            Trying to erase the Last Jedi from my mind!

          • ROFL! Had to be done. I didn’t like it either so I get it.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

            I’ve been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner; now I am the master.

            Use the force, Luke.

            Judge me by my size, do you?

            Do. Or do not. There is no try.

            I’ve got a bad feeling about this.

          • Sir Mitch

            “Force-Chokeslams David Jr into a Table”

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            Wait! You really didn’t like Last Jedi? I thought it was brilliant.

          • It seems as though people are really split on it. I’ve not seen it, so I cannot say.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            I agree with you.

          • Sir Mitch

            Plot holes, continuity problems and sentiment over substance.
            So no, I didn’t like it at all!

          • I’ve heard that. But, as I said, I’ve not seen it yet. We really need to do that.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            It’s a movie you really need to see more than once, to appreciate it.

          • Sir Mitch

            I saw it a second time thinking that…still hated it!

          • I HATED it for that. Kylo came off looking like a whiny little girl. Luke was a bitter old man. Awful stuff.

        • Xavier

          LOL, my bad, JJ is trash

        • Sir Mitch

          Don’t worry, we’ll be at each others throats soon enough LOL.

    • Noemy Galvez

      Agreed. He’s always been great in the ring

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      Now if he could step up his personality on the mic.

  • Biggie and Tupac movie? This oughta be a disaster…

    • Xavier

      It’s a detective movie about trying to solve their crimes

    • S.A.M. Quack! Quack! Quack!

      well it is a limited series. i mean it could be good but both of their stories have been told so much that it is hard to find anything new to tell

  • Booker is doing a mean Foghorn Leghorn. “I say, I say, Cole, I say, I say”…

    • Noemy Galvez

      LOL

  • Sir Mitch

    Have you placed your votes for The Royal Accolades: WR Readers Choice Awards yet?
    If not, don’t worry, you still have five days to place your votes before the next line of award categories are announced!

  • Is that mark on Cesaro’s right thigh new?

  • Xavier

    Solid match

  • Jason really is THAT good.

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    If Jason Jordan had personality, he could be the next Dolph Ziggler. xD

  • Noemy Galvez

    “How did he pull that off?”
    “A lot of heart.”

    No, he pulled that off because Seth helped him.

  • Man, no one is giving Jason a chance at all! LOL!! Pile on, kids….pile on.

    • Mat D

      I am leading the pile

      Master O Pile, thats me

  • Sir Mitch

    Raw is about to be…WOKEN!!!!

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle
    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Me

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Dana Brooke or Miss Alexandra York?

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      Ew. To both.

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        You don’t like the York Foundation?

    • Mat D

      Im digging the look TBH

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    Poor Apollo…. He was poised to be the next big thing in NXT. Now look at him.

  • Sir Mitch

    Ok I need you guys to answer a question.
    If we did a New Japan Pro Wrestling Wrestle Kingdom Dignified Discussion…would you join in?
    Bearing in mind its U.S. start times are 11pm Pacific and 2am eastern?

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      What’s the date and where could I watch it. I might join in if possible.

      • Sir Mitch

        January 4th

        • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

          Count me in if you do it. Just looked up where I could watch it. Would be worth the 6.99

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      I would not.

    • Mat D

      I thought it was 3am??

      • Sir Mitch

        Nope, 2am with the pre show.

        • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

          That’s 1 AM for me over in Central Time.

    • S.A.M. Quack! Quack! Quack!

      i would join in. just have to remember lol

      • Sir Mitch

        I’ll chuck it on our FB page the day before.

  • Xavier

    Dana rocking those glasses. Love the naughty school teacher look

  • Apollo Crews is positively lacquered in baby oil. LOL!!

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Can someone lacquered in baby oil, still be a Backflip Master?

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      Reminds me of the new 2k18 feature which lets you just lather your custom superstar in baby oil. xD Looks like someone went overboard with Crews.

      • That’s seriously a thing? Who’d want to do that? UGH!

        • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

          It’s seriously a thing. I’ve had the game for months and just noticed it. I’m not sure who would do it, but it’s there for someone to recreate Big Dick Johnson.

  • Apollo isn’t getting completely killed. What a relief. it’s actually going on a bit…even though he won’t win.

  • Sir Mitch
    • Xavier

      Identical

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        Except Terri Runnels is attractive……

        • I think Dana is beautiful and Terri looks plastic to me. But that’s my personal feeling on the matter.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            I agree with you, I prefer Dana over Terri.

          • Sir Mitch

            Terri was hot from 95-98.
            After that she had one to many “procedures”

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            I just have a vendetta against Dana Brooke. She has no talent in the ring. A man face. She should disappear into obscurity.

          • Tell us how you really feel! lol

            I kinda have a vendetta Terri and her plastic boobs stuck to her bony chest. I will say she was the master of showing off her boobs from every angle without many wardrobe malfunctions, but that doesn’t make up for her overly tanned skin that put her in the same boat with Sable and Ric Flair – looking like naugahyde barkaloungers.

          • A “man face”. I am DEAD! ROFLROFLROFL!!

      • STOP AGREEING THIS INSTANT!

        • S.A.M. Quack! Quack! Quack!

          hey it’s a new year. weird things happen lol

  • Xavier

    I get the feeling Crews might actually go over (off a Hardy distraction)

    • Sir Mitch

      I think you may be right!

      • Xavier

        He’s getting some offense in. More then I thought he would

    • I would love that – even if it wouldn’t do a thing for Crews’ stock.

    • Noemy Galvez

      Nevermind…

      • Xavier

        Right lol

        • Noemy Galvez

          One can hope…

  • Crews can flat-out go. If he could just be bigger personality-wise, he’d be golden.

  • CJ Blaze

    I’ll give them props for making the match somewhat interesting.

    • Noemy Galvez

      Agreed

    • Sir Mitch

      CJ Blaze, good to see you!

      • CJ Blaze

        Yeah I’ve been here the whole time, but had TV issues at the start.

        • Sir Mitch

          A lot of that happening in the U.S.
          Bad weather must be affecting TV signals huh!

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            North Korea is finally attacking and they’re starting with our tv’s. The nefarious bastards!

          • Sir Mitch

            Why would they bother…America is crumbling from within LOL.
            I joke I joke I kid I kid!

  • Oh well. I’m a fan of Bray but I hoped…

  • YAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSS

  • Xavier

    LOL WTF

  • Xavier

    Bray Wyatt’s face though lol

  • Sir Mitch

    Bray is selling this really well.
    He looks legit freaked out!

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      How can someone not love this? Seriously.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Will we ever get Vanguard 1?

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      Impact has rights. Get ready for Vanguard 2.

  • Xavier

    I like how they’re blending Enzo’s real life trip to the ER with this segment

  • Xavier

    Stop cockblocking Alexa lol

  • The gift of Jericho

    Meekmahan is letting this broken thing just fly. How can you not love this

    • It’s slightly different but I like it!

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        Honestly, I wouldn’t want it to remain the same. WWE has a way better budget, and the gimmick needed to be tweaked for a mainstream audience.

        • Agreed totally!

        • David “Top 10” Jr.

          Also if they don’t tweak it, then WWE is just stealing from Impact.

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            Well, given how much Impact stole from WWE over the years…. I’d say turnabout is fair play.

    • Sir Mitch

      Is this the artist formally known as “Rusev Day”?

      • The gift of Jericho

        No my friend.. I’m am the artist formally known as Sam. Not s.a.m.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Anybody watching the Mixed Match Challenge? I won’t because I don’t Facebook.

  • Xavier

    Never cared much for Mixed tag matches, for the most part the matches have been meh. I guess that’s why I’m not too excited for this upcoming mixed tag match tourny

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    Best Woman ring announcer?
    Mike McGuirk, Lillian Garcia or JoJo?

    • CJ Blaze

      I like Lillian

    • Mike McGuirk though JoJo is gorgeous!

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        I knew if anyone would pick Mike McGuirk, it would be you.

    • Xavier

      JoJo. I’m basing this off of finest. So don’t take my answer serious lol

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      Lillian is bae.

  • THAT THEME THO!!!!

  • I love that they remixed the theme, bringing the vocal further forward so I can actually hear it.

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      I didn’t even notice until you said that.

      • Yeah, the vocal was washed out in NXT. When she got to “Raw”, they remixed it to raise the level of the vocal and take some of the reverb off of it too. Great choice.

  • Xavier

    I really hope they don’t job Asuka out to Ronda

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      DELETE THIS COMMENT BEFORE THE WWE SPIES SEE IT!!!

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    Asuka removing her mask gets me every time

  • Xavier

    I’m surprised we are getting this match

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Wrestle Royalty… I’m here.
    *blows out my match*

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      *trick match flames back up*

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Asuka, my favorite RAW wrestler, Alexa Bliss, becoming my favorite persona on RAW.

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    If this match doesn’t end in shenanigans….. I’mma throw a fit.

    • Xavier

      Yeah I thought this would of made more sense saved for Mania. Oh well

      • THIS!

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        I get why they’re putting it on here though. I just hope they don’t soil it with a clear victor.

  • Alexa is selling so much of this with just her face.

    • Brandon Ceielo

      Why I love Alexa.

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      That’s the mark of a true performer. You really can’t teach that. You either have the ability to sell with just your face, or you don’t.

      • Mat D

        KO is really good at that too

        he does “infuriated for no reason” really well

        • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

          If KO did not have the ability to sell his performance, it wouldn’t matter how good he is in the ring, he would have never made it to WWE.

          • But then you have JJ and Crews who struggle to sell facially and they’re struggling to get over. Facial expressions and body language is a huge part of the industry, and too many people completely ignore it for ring work, or how someone’s body looks.

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            EXACTLY. Having the look isn’t everything.

          • Three things –

            A look. It doesn’t have to be good, just interesting or different.

            Ability. Ring work doesn’t have to be the best, but has to be able to hold their own and grow over time.

            Charisma. This is emoting and mic work. Even without the mic work, if someone can emote, they can go so much further than someone who can’t. (Sorry I’m using this person, but he’s first to mind.) Benoit wasn’t great on mic, but he emoted so well that he didn’t need to be Rocky on mic.

            Those three things are needed before we even get to characters and booking.

    • Bliss is too with her huge eyes. It’s been a visually great match.

  • Sir Mitch

    For those who wondered why Alexa wasn’t up for the Breakout Star of the year category in our WR Readers Choice Awards…she is up for a higher award to be voted on a later date!

      That game is insane

  • Brandon Ceielo

    I’m on the ropes!

  • Xavier

    This match taking place here makes me nervous that Ronda or Stephanie will be the one to win the Rumble

    • Agreed. This should have been saved for a PPV.

      • Xavier

        Agreed. It’s been a good match so far

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        I see why they’re doing it. I still have hopes it ends in shenanigans.

    • I honestly don’t think they’d do that, but #WWELogic has me worried.

      • Xavier

        You sure about that lol

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      If Stephanie wins, it’ll set this Women’s Revolution back a few steps. I could see Ronda winning, but it would kill the Horwewomen match at Mania.

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      i dont want either of those two in the rumble but wwe does things for the sake of it plenty of times

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      The last time a McMahon won a Royal Rumble, well it was the worst Royal Rumble in history.

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        I really don’t think it was the worst….

        • David “Top 10” Jr.

          Besides Austin, nobody in the match was a legit threat of winning it. It was an overbooked Vince Russo match.

      • I disagree. Cannot pull up which was the worst off the top of my head (my memory is really bad these days), but I’ll come back with it tomorrow night.

        • Brandon Ceielo

          The one Rey was #30.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            The wrong guy won, but it’s not as bad as 1999.

          • I wrote that whole series about each RR winner. Wish I knew where they were, because I could flip through them fast. And I’d like to make them available here on WR, and catch up with the most recent years that I didn’t cover.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            Well my personal worst is 99. But other early bad ones are 89 w/Big John Studd, 93 w/Yokozuna and 95 w/HBK.

          • I have issue with the year Flair won too.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            The year Flair won is generally considered the best Royal Rumble. Also it has the best performance in Royal Rumble history.

          • I didn’t say I had issue with the year that Flair won. VKM did so many things wrong, messed up with Flair, and Flair was not around long. It was all just a huge mess.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            The Steroid Trial changed the WWE back then. So they were starting to push guys like Bret Hart & HBK and were focusing on the “New Generation”. That’s why Flair wasn’t there long.

          • I know, but it could have been handled better.

          • I’ll rewatch it, but I wasn’t thrilled.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            When I said the best performance in Royal Rumble history, I don’t mean Ric Flair. I’m talking about Bobby Heenan. His call for the match is Bobby Heenan at his finest. I quote Bobbby Heenan from the 1992 Royal Rumble all the time. I rewatch the 1992 Royal Rumble just because of Bobby Heenan.

          • Okay, I guess I know what I’m watching tonight – if I last after Raw.

          • I was actually thinking further back than that.

        • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

          I personally think the 2011 was the worst. The first and only 40 man Rumble. Just didn’t like it. Especially when they wasted slots on Jerry “The King” and Michael Cole.

          • Okay, I cannot agree with you on that one for a couple reasons.

            First being that it was one of my three HUGE predictions that everyone scoffed at because it was so out of the blue.

            Second, the RR is my favorite PPV and I’ve only attended one of them. Yep, that was in Boston, so I was there.

            I’ll admit I’m completely biased on that one

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            Michael Cole was not in the 40 man Rumble. He was in the 2012 Rumble won by Sheamus.

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            Meh. My memory is hazy. Regardless, the Rumble was awful.

  • Sir Mitch

    Thoughts on this match so far?

    • It’s Asuka and Alexa. They’re killing it.

    • Xavier

      It’s shaping up nicely. Wish the fans were more into this though

      • Sir Mitch

        Same!

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        Bring back the audience from last week. LOL

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    one simply does NOT slap Asuka

  • Xavier

    Good match. Wish they would of saved it for Mania

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    Bad camera angle. I could 100% see that the knee didn’t connect.

    • Xavier

      Noticed that too

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Nooooo!

  • No shenanigans…as they’re should have been. UGH!

  • Xavier

    Wow, they went with the clean finish

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    This end has gotten a little awkward.

  • Asuka didn’t even use her finisher.

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      feels like wwe is going with the armbar as her finisher now

      • #RIPAsukaLock

      • Xavier

        I’m scared they’re doing that to just job her too Ronda

        • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

          if that happens just ugh….. on so many levels they reach well over 9000

    • Brandon Ceielo

      She spin kicked?

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    Well…… #WWELogic

  • Any particular reason Corey is dressed as a Solid Gold cast-off?

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      Shhhhhh! Don’t question it.

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    Also… That Spin Kick didn’t connect… At a different camera angle I could still tell.

    • Sometimes it happens. As long as it’s sold well, and doesn’t happen often, I have no issue with it.

  • Xavier

    Samoa Joe is Clubber Lang

  • Sir Mitch

    I know this is the featured comment, but I would like to reiterate!

    I just want to say from everyone behind the scenes here at WR…thank you!

    Thank you from following us to our new home and joining us in this journey.

    2017 will forever be known as the year Royalty came to the world of pro wrestling news and opinion, and we have you guys to thank.

    We wish you all Happy New Year!

    • and CAAAAAAAAAAAN YOU FEEEEEEEL THE LOOOOOOOOOVE TONIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT

    • Brandon Ceielo

      It’s only because of the people that we’re all here.

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      Much love to the WRC (Wrestle Royalty Community). 2017 was great. 2018 will be better.

      • Sir Mitch

        Ok, you know we are stealing that LOL!

        • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

          I’ll wait for my royalty check. ;P (Pun intended)

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      2017 was only the start and 2018 will help to grow even more. this is gonna be one awesome ride to see flourish

  • Love the way Renee just tossed her intro off like she can stand Samoa Joe. Nailed!

    • Brandon Ceielo

      That whole segment was great.

  • Xavier

    Damn Joe

  • ETHER!!!!

    • Xavier

      THIS ^^^

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    Joe is a savage.

    • Xavier

      Right to her face

  • Xavier

    Will Renee Young get involved in this?

    • Hopefully! Talk about emoting and charisma.

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    BRRRRAAAAUUUUUNNNNN!!!!

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      (Expect this comment EVER SINGLE TIME BRRRAAAAUUUUNNN Strowman comes on my screen.)

    • You weren’t here one night and I did that to CJ and he almost fell over that it was from me.

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    Joe is just pure perfection on the mic

    • Xavier

      LMFAO

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      nice to see her smiled in it lol

  • Xavier

    Renee looked pissed too, wonder if anything will come of it

    • She DESTROYED that! She’s the only one who actually gets involved and shows any emotion. ‘Course, this was so much easier given Dean is her man.

  • Sir Mitch

    Wow, Renee was all like “Oh no he didn’t”

  • Xavier

    Joe is COLD BLOODED *in my Rick James/Chappelle voice*

  • Xavier

    I feel like the ship has long sailed on Bayley

    • The ship sailed away, was dismantled, and is now sitting on the dock in pieces.

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        Piece by piece is being used as firewood for Vince McMahon’s fireplace.

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      The magic from her NXT run is dead.

  • Bayley is just…nothing.

  • Sir Mitch

    Oh, poor Heath!

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Does Rhyno have kids as well?

  • Xavier

    I love when fans chant ECW even though 90 percent of them probably never bothered to watch it when it was on. I always find that funny

    • I loved it when ECW was on. Actually, Monday Night Wars, because wrestling was on almost every night of the week.

    • The desperation to be cool tho. LOL!!

  • Xavier

    LOL Strowman said you can catch these hands. Strowman must have black friends lol

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    BRRRRAAAUUUUNNN saying these hands?! I’m dead. Completely dead. Someone dig me out of my grave.

    • Xavier

      LMFAO! I loved it

  • CJ Blaze

    But.. he’s got kids!

  • Xavier

    This segment is so much better then it had any business being

  • The jobbing that is happening here.

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    lol Slater is gonna think he is back in 3MB lol

  • Xavier

    This arena has came to life

    • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

      Came to life? Don’t you mean come to life?

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    BRRRRRRAAAAUUUUUUNNNNN is over like rover.

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    this is like Return of the King, just when you think it is gonna end, it just keeps on going

  • Xavier

    CATCH THESE HANDS. The title of the GETBACK this week

  • Can this go on for the rest of the show please?

  • Sir Mitch

    It’s like the episode of the Simpsons when that kid screams “Stop He’s Already Dead” LOL.

  • Xavier

    Strowman the MVP of the new year so far

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Jason gonna cost roman

  • Xavier

    Jason Jordan lol. All of a sudden RAW is gold

  • Sir Mitch

    Ok, Roman and Seth’s faces just made me LMFAO!!!

    • Xavier

      Jordan was hilarious there. Came off so naive lol

      • Sir Mitch

        That actually reminded of Angle trying to act cool with guys like Austin and Undertaker LOL.

    • I woke Dragon baying with laughter at their faces!

  • YES! The “you’re not the in club” looks from Roman and Seth!

  • Xavier

    I’m freaking dying over here between Strowman going hood and Jordan saying BELIEVE THAT

  • Xavier

    Since the beginning of theAlexa/Asuka match this RAW has really picked up

  • Xavier

    Somebody please start a CATCH THESE HANDS chant for Strowman next week

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      it needs to be his next shirt

      • Xavier

        YES

  • I hate “Talking Kane”.

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Talking Kane will be the name of his show on Fox News once he retires.

  • Xavier

    Kane about to catch these hands too

  • Xavier

    About time

  • CJ Blaze

    Yessss

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    this is Too Sweet

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    YESSSSSS!!!!

      • Asukalanchian

        Which is weird. Got a friend that works at Hot Topic and says their merchandise barely sells

        • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

          Not surprising.

        • Sir Mitch

          Classic BC shirt was the fourth biggest seller of 2017 according to Hot Topic…so go figure!

          • I bet it’s locational. They wouldn’t sell well in Maine, but would in a lot of other places.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            I’ve have never seen one in Michigan.

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            Honestly I’ve seen more Hot Topics closing than I have popping up. Back where I grew up, there were several malls within an hour or two drive. All but two have closed shop.

          • There were three in Maine, we are down to two.

          • Sir Mitch

            From the numbers I’ve seen…BC merch sells like crazy.
            But it’s not just sold at Hot Topic remember.
            Top selling items at Pro Wrestling Tees, ROH store and NJPW store are all BC items.

      • Xavier

        Just seeing if you were paying attention

      • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

        Making money off someone else’s idea. Seems pretty cheap to me. #MaliciousMyrtle

        • Sir Mitch

          WWE has been doing that for years!
          Just saying

          • Professional Wrestling has been doing that for 100+ years

          • Sir Mitch

            Exactly

          • Fiction has been doing it for thousands of years. Everything has been done, it’s just putting the right spin on it with the right people that makes it feel fresh, new, or just different.

          • Xavier

            You mean by creating Hogan, Austin, Rock, Cena, Taker, HBK, Bret, Warrior etc etc or being the first company to expland beyond terrtories. Yeah they stole that *eyes roll*

          • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

            *Sits back with popcorn enjoying the chaos he has caused.*

          • Sir Mitch

            Stole Attitude Era from ECW, Stole CW’s from WCW, stole ring names gimmicks etc etc etc!!!

        • Xavier

          Exactly.

  • Sir Mitch

    Now I’m torn…Bullet Club or Balor Club?

  • Asukalanchian

    finally aligned them back up

  • Lets see if this is a one time only thing or if the Balor club officially begins here.

    • Xavier

      They need to just run with this

  • Mayday “No Chill” Myrtle

    I’m playing Assassin’s Creed during the commercial breaks. xD I almost forgot to stop playing after the last commercial break.

  • Xavier

    Good RAW so far

  • How tired are MTV challenges? These people have all gotta be over 40 by now.

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      the original ones were fun but now it is like can this just end

  • Joe gets DQ’d or Roman gets counted out. That’s how this match ends.

    • Xavier

      Yup, and then we get the blow off at the Rumble

  • Xavier

    THis has been a good RAW to kick off the new year

    • Better than they normally are!

  • Corey’s jackets are usually nicely slim, this one is a horrible fabric, and too short. If he tried to tell me it’s the style, I’d laugh at him, because that’s not a style, that’s not having enough fabric!

    • You see that jacket and all you can think is “slim”. Nevermind the Denny Terrio “Saturday Night Fever”-ness of it. LOL!!!

      • I agree on that. You already stated it, so I didn’t think I needed to mention that again. Plus, he’s sometimes odd in his fabric choices.

  • Xavier

    The Cummutor looks like it might be good. Not even gonna lie, I think that Vern Farmiga lady is kind of fine

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      Vera Farmiga is one fine lady

      • Xavier

        Yeah man. I always thought she was really pretty

        • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

          The Departed is what got me to see her like wow

          • Xavier

            For me it was watching “Bates Motel” even though she was a little crazy in that show lol

          • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

            i have always meant to catch that show but havent

          • Xavier

            It’s really good

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      It looks like Non-Stop but this time on a train instead of an airplane.

      • Xavier

        Lol true

  • Xavier

    It’s hard to believe that Roman was actually was the size of Joe at one point before switching to pro wrestling

  • 2 of the most amazingly athletic guys in WWE are in the ring right now and they do it in their own way.

  • Sir Mitch

    Just to rile a few people up…I’ve got a poll running on Twitter asking who does invasions better DX or Bullet Club.
    BC is winning 60-40 LOL!

    • Xavier

      Lol, A lot of people ran out of meds before the new year

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      I would vote neither, because neither were going to do anything. If WCW would have let DX in or if WWE would have let Bullet Club in they wouldn’t do anything.

      • Xavier

        Just would of been a bunch of people laughing at the phony BC in their sad attempt to or rip off and steal another idea #PettyDre

        • David “Top 10” Jr.

          When Voodoo Kin Mafia does it, they are pathetic. When Bullet Club does it. Oooh, they’re great.

    • 3 letters. ECW

      • Sir Mitch

        Point Taken!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    I think someday these two would be a helluva team

  • Sir Mitch

    Thoughts on this match so far?

    • Xavier

      What are your thoughts on this match so far? Asking for a friend

    • Despite all that’s said, Roman can go. Samoa Joe has always been incredible. This is a good one!

      • Was watching old TNA PPVs and Joe had a pompadour. I don’t remember his hair being that tall and coiffed!

      • Sir Mitch

        I could do without Roman “Hulking Up” but agreed.
        He can go…with the right dance partner!

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Good standard joe vs roman with roman hulking up

  • Xavier

    I wonder why Roman doesn’t do his dive over the top rope anymore

    • Because dives have become completely overdone and he likely knows that. I wouldn’t be mad if no one did them anymore for a while.

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      Vince probably stopped him

    • Sir Mitch

      He only does it on multiple guys so he’s guarantied a safe landing!

  • this is doing a lot for Joe in making him appear Roman’s equal.

    • Xavier

      Joe is probably the one guy that the Shield haven’t been able to 1 up so far

      • LDB-The Good Doctor

        Yep joe is Thanos

      • Sir Mitch

        Which is a good thing.
        I say Joe should go over here so when Roman is Uni champ this year they can feud again on PPV/Network specials!

  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    If someone joes size pulled that dive off in the 80s the world would have melted

  • The Ratings for Raw will be bad this week because of Clemson vs Alabama. which is sad a lot of people are missing a good show.

    • Xavier

      And OU/Georgia

    • LDB-The Good Doctor

      I watxhed georgia vs oklahoma. Couldnt help it i broke.

  • Samoa Joe is utterly SAVAGE!

  • This is an EXCEPTIONAL match!

  • Sir Mitch

    Roman is going to lose this match via DQ, but I wish he was winning it clean.
    Does him no harm to put over Joe before he wins the Rumble!

    • Well if he does lose by DQ Joe wins the title.

      • Sir Mitch

        Still would look better if he won clean IMO!

        • And again Reigns is not winning the Rumble.

          • Sir Mitch

            What makes you so sure?
            I’m genuinely curious!

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            Elimination Chamber.

          • He doesn’t need to win it to face brock at Wrestlemania. Nakamura will win the Rumble to set up AJ vs Nakamura.

          • Sir Mitch

            He doesn’t need to…but Vince wants him too!

          • I’ll tell you what. if Roman does win the rumble I will buy one of those stupid Bullet Club shirts and take a picture wearing it and post it here.

          • Sir Mitch

            LOL, your on!
            Bearing in mind I’ve already won a similar bet with @disqus_MfLD4N5kPt:disqus so I will give an opportunity later to duck out if you wish.

          • But if anyone but Roman wins especially if Naka wins you must go an entire month without saying anything negative about WWE or their fans.

          • Sir Mitch

            Too easy!
            Road to Mania is usually pretty good.

          • Okay. Holding you both to it!

          • It’s on like donkey kong then.

          • Sir Mitch

            For a little extra spice…if Roman eliminates Naka to win you have to watch an entire NJPW show.
            If Naka eliminates Roman to win I’ll buy a Roman shirt and post a pic of me wearing it here.
            Deal?

          • I’m not taking that because I honestly don’t think Roman will even be in the match.

          • Sir Mitch

            Seriously?

          • Super Cereal

          • Okay, I’m going to make sure this happens if he does!

  • Xavier

    These two guys hate each other. Love it

  • Mauro would be screaming his fool head off by now. Thank goodness we’ve got Cole instead.

  • Xavier

    This match is FIRE

  • Xavier

    ROMAN REIGNS BAYBAY!

  • UGH! Clean finish on Joe.

  • CJ Blaze

    Hat’s off to 2018’s MOTY (so far)

    • Sir Mitch

      Just wait until Wrestle Kingdom!
      Omega vs Jericho and Okada vs Naitio will both rock the joint!

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        I don’t know if Jericho is capable of having MOTY matches anymore, I don’t care how good Omega is suppose to be.

        • Sir Mitch

          If he was a WWE guy you’d love him LOL!

          • Not David Jr. He’s more open than that.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            Jericho is a WWE guy.

  • Sir Mitch

    Seriously shocked Roman didn’t drop the Title!
    Circumstances were perfect for him to do so.

  • Xavier
  • LDB-The Good Doctor

    Knight guys back to football happy new year day

  • Xavier

    The first Roman/Brock tease

  • Xavier

    I give that match 7 out of 5 *in my Meltzer voice* because why not lol

  • I really hope Paige can walk properly after she calls it a career.

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    Itami vs Gallagher should be good tomorrow on 205 Live

    • Itami is UGH! They should ban his GTS finisher so he can’t hurt anyone else with it.

      • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

        i think the GTS should be reserved for big moments and not be his everyday finisher

        • It should be reserved for…NEVAH! He hurts people with it. Brian ain’t the first. Did you see the clip? He was beyond reckless with it.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    I have to say Congratulation to “The Royal Fuzz”. Over 500 comments for Christmas and New Year’s Raw DD.

    • I’ll admit that I was shocked about the Christmas one. But it’s because of all of you that we can tout those numbers. Now, how about well over a thousand for the RR?

  • Ugh, the makeup and the duck faces!

  • Xavier

    Gulak is F’ing amazing

  • Drew…..ROFLROFLROFLROFL!!!!

    • Xavier

      A CUPPA, No that’s not right, a CUP OF HATERS lol

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Sorry I disappeared. The kids came to visit.

  • I love when Gulak reads things handed to him from Enzo.

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    i enjoy Cedric but man do i want Gulak to be the cruiserweight champ

  • Xavier

    It was really unprofessional of Enzo to get wasted the way he did and not be able to make the show for his advertised match. If I were Vince I would take the title off of him

  • Goldust and Alexander teaming together? That is awesome!!!!

  • Xavier

    There you go kiddos. A heavyweight guy mixing it up with the Cruiserweights

    • Sir Mitch

      About bloody time!

  • Asukalanchian

    I hope Goldy can teach Alexander where to find some charisma too

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Can’t?

      • Asukalanchian

        fixed it…my bad

  • Xavier

    Cedric looked way to excited there lol

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    i still want Velveteen Dream vs Goldust.

  • Yes! I’ve been calling for mixed matches! No reason the 205 guys cannot work with the main roster!

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    WWE Network show idea. Drew Gulak reading old Ultimate Warrior, Randy Savage, Dusty Rhodes and Hulk Hogan promos.

  • I’m gonna say it. Cedric is the best worker in the WWE right now. No one is as crispy. He just has almost no mic.

  • Asukalanchian

    Cruiserweightdust!

  • Xavier

    The ‘”Real” Bullet Club vs The Miztourage at the 25th RAW anniversary?

    • Sir Mitch

      Bullet Club Hollywood in WWE and Bullet Club Wolfpack in NJPW/ROH!

      • Xavier

        LMAO

        • Sir Mitch

          I don’t care what anyone says…I will always love the red and black of the Wolfpack!
          Owwwwwwwww!

          • Xavier

            Botch and KB eat this stuff lol

          • Hey, I’m still giddy about my Wolfpack moment the other night I told you all about earlier.

  • Goldy helped Cedric in a huge way in that short time! He also pushed Gulak and the whole 205. Amazing!

  • Xavier

    Botch and KB trying to profit off of Me and Mitch’s beef like Source & Vibe magazine profited off of Pac vs Biggie and West vs East lol

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    So just thought about something. One of the earliest Big Raw moments is when the Kid defeats Razor Ramon. So maybe on the 25th Anniversary of Raw, Curt Hawkins defeats someone like I don’t know Sheamus?

    • Xavier

      Good idea bro

  • Xavier

    Always been a Cena fan. Even at the height of all the hate but I hope he doesn’t win the Rumble

    • Sir Mitch

      He isn’t!
      It will either be Roman or Nakamura.
      99% sure it will be Roman!

  • CJ Blaze

    The Rumble theme song sounds pretty similar to 2013’s if I’m not mistaken.

  • Xavier

    Did anyone see Elias perform his version of “Hotline Bling” over the weekend at a house show?

  • Xavier

    Elias is like the late draft pick in the NBA/NFL that everybody slept on who comes into the league and blows away everybody’s expectations

    • I remember him just wandering on to raw last year and everyone questioning it and wondering why.

      • Xavier

        And even on NXT he jobbed a lot

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    WWE = Walk With Elias. that has to become some shirt somehow, some way

  • Asukalanchian

    Bo gets more show time than Bray

  • Xavier

    This is just the boost Anderson & Gallows needed

    • Asukalanchian

      Balor also if they use it as a stable

  • Asukalanchian

    We better see the Gallows and Anderson of old

  • Asukalanchian

    Close-up of the manhood lol

  • Xavier

    Shots fired at Mariah Carey lol

    • Yeah, ouch! Her and her bleeping hot tea! Ugh!

      • Xavier

        She’s a mess right now

        • She’s been an egotistical mess for quite a while.

          • Yeah but now she can’t sing either. She’s in no position to be feeling herself like she does.

          • What happened to her voice?

            She was a diva for so long she doesn’t know how not to be a diva.

          • She overworked her larynx and didn’t take care of herself. Now, she has horrible nodules but she won’t get surgery because she’d lose her whistle notes.

          • Idiot!

          • She just ran herself too hard. When she had it, she HAD it. She was the best singer working at that point – one of the best ever, really. Now she’s a shadow of her former self. If she’d just get the surgery, she’d get a lot of it back. The nodes are why she’s so scratchy in her upper register.

          • I told you, I really have no ear. You and I are complete opposites there. But to not take care of her equipment is daft! I have a few stupid injuries from weaving (don’t even laugh, though it’s funny to hear), but I work hard to take care of my hands so that I can type and weave. I’m very small potatoes, but she’s huge and should know better than screw it all up that way.

          • She was SO in demand that she really couldn’t’ help that part of it. She was stupid in that she “went for the gusto” every single time she sang. When you sing, you have to pace yourself and sing safely. She never did that. She always had to go for the high notes all the time. She’s paying for it now.

          • Xavier

            I still thought Whitney was better in the 90s but I get what you’re saying

          • Whitney was GREAT but Mariah had the better instrument in terms of range and power. Whitney was better with regard to what to do with what she had. I MUCH prefer Whitney to Mariah in terms of songs and delivering.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            The greatest singer ever is Frankie Yankovic, America’s Polka King.

          • What little I know, I completely agree. Though Let’s Hear It For The Boy will haunt me for life. It’s a song I rarely get out of my head for longer than a couple months at a time.

          • That was Deniece Williams. She was a great singer too but that wasn’t her best song. Check out “It’s Gonna Take A Miracle” or “Silly”.

          • Whitney didn’t sing that? How the heck did I screw that one up? I always thought it was Whitney! See, I’ve always been a bit of a flake.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            You bringing up Let’s Hear if For the Boy is going to make me cry.

          • Why?

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            When I was little, my dad would exercise to the Footloose soundtrack. So it makes me think of him.

          • Gotcha. Sorry.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            It’s OK.

          • I didn’t know, but I’m still sorry. I don’t want to make you sad. Don’t want to make anyone sad.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            You should have watched her animated Christmas movie. Actually, don’t watch it. No one should ever watch it.

    • She can’t sing anymore and has little left to offer. Shots deserved.

  • David “Top 10” Jr.

    So Balor is main eventing Raw?

    • Xavier

      Looks like it

      • David “Top 10” Jr.

        But I thought Vince doesn’t like him. Why would he have him main event Raw.

        • It is odd, especially with Joe/RR and Asuka/Bliss. Both those matches could have stolen the main event in huge ways.

          • David “Top 10” Jr.

            I guess I was wrong, I forgot BL was on tonight.

          • Ugh! Goes back to my point, either of those two matches could have been killer main events.

  • bork is main eventing

  • Asukalanchian

    I would love to see Balor come out during Lesnar’s ending and say there is another alpha joining the match.

    • David “Top 10” Jr.

      Alpha? Oh, you must mean Jason Jordan, former member of the American Alpha.

    • That would have been a thing that could happen had he not thrown his name in the Royal Rumble earlier tonight.

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      another Alpha? i thought Jericho was supposed to be in Japan for Wrestle Kingdom

    • Xavier

      I could get behind that

  • Whoever would have thought The Miz would have become what he’s become? Amazing, really.

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      i knew he could have a solid career but not a Hall of Fame worthy one

      • Exactly! When he beat Cena at WM and then struggled everyone thought he would Mahal out, but he gets better year by year and truly deserves another run at the top.

    • Xavier

      Ive been a fan since late 09/early 2010

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    The Miz is indeed awesome

  • I’m looking forward to Miz coming back next week. (if any raw superstar wins the rumble it should be him.)

  • Xavier

    So let me ask you guys, Which was better for Finn; Balor being paired back with his old buddies or do you think him winning the titles with Seth would of been better?

    • Asukalanchian

      Old buddies if they let the stable build momentum

    • Noemy Galvez

      I want to say old buddies, but Vince is still in charge, so I’d say Seth. I loathe his partnership with Jason Jordan right now.

  • Sir Mitch

    Balor and the Good Brothers win!
    Doesn’t matter where it is…Bullet Club rules the Wrestling world!

  • Xavier

    Heyman is great on the mic no doubt but he’s putting me to sleep here

    • Noemy Galvez

      For me, it’s not Paul, it’s the feud he’s trying to hype up

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    out of all the BL matches of late, this has to be the one that has me feeling meh about it the most

    • Xavier

      Same here. Feels lazy and thrown together

    • Noemy Galvez

      Same

  • Sir Mitch

    Brock growing his beard back in!

    • That will take him at least a year. LOL!!

    • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

      last time i remember Brock with a beard he got beat down by Cain Velasquez

    • Xavier

      He’s gonna need it to soften the blow to his face when Roman hits his ass with a superman punch at WM and puts him to sleep

  • Xavier

    Brock just trolled Kane lol

  • Xavier

    What a lame ass ending.

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    wait that was the end?

  • All the “meh” I’m feeling right now…

  • an army couldn’t stop this.

  • Asukalanchian

    Wow that was terrible ending

  • Xavier

    This triple threat match feels so phoned in. Even heyman can’t sell this

  • Noemy Galvez

    Well, that was anticlimactic. See y’all tomorrow

  • Sir Mitch

    Ok Raw for this week.
    See you tomorrow for SD guys!

  • Asukalanchian

    I was expecting Strowman out next and the announce team to say there isn’t enough talent to hold these 3 apart.

  • S.A.M. I AM BAY-BAY!!!

    besides that lackluster ending pretty good Raw
    see y’all tomorrow for SD
    goodnight everybody!!!
