The Only Place to Be in Your Pop Culture World
It’s Monday Night! Talk all about tonight’s Raw right here… and also any baseball or other programs you may be viewing throughout the evening!
Also, ICYMI, Scott Criscuolo & Jason Greenhouse dropped a GWWE podblast looking at the career of Haku!
A filler raw tonight? Or a big storyline raw?
Name of the arena Raw is at tonight is Talking Stick Resort Arena.
Miguel Montero should fit in with the Blue Jays quite nicely, if you know what I mean.
Good promo from enzo
It was until the Tupac tribute there.
Will the Yankees blow another lead to extend their sucking further into the season?
They’re playing Toronto so probably not.
I take nothing for granted after the last 20 games or so.
It has been an unreal stretch. Tough to play “if only…” but they lost at least 4-5 games that absolutely should have been won.
Enzo must have a surprisingly good vertical leap to be able to get the jump on Cass.
Still a little disappointed they didn’t fake-reunite again though.
Why is it that ever since Bayley has come up to the main roster the setup crew can’t figure out how to get her inflatables to work properly? Seems like every time she comes out she is having to try to get at least one of them to inflate.
Ive really enjoyss enzo on the mic the past two weeks. He’s shown great babyface passion. Good on him..
They sure are making Bayley look ineffective. I have no idea what they are even trying to accomplish with the character anymore.
Not a good match.
So if Braun beats roman in the ambulance match, does he get the title shot at summerslam?
They really have done a great job with making me want to see Lesnar vs. Joe though.
Yeah this has been fantastic build up, great booking and work from everyone involved. I’m quite looking forward to Sunday night.
Plus, its a match that has never been done before. I’m intrigued. Between that, Reigns vs. Strowman, and even the Cruiserweight Title match it should be a solid show, even if I do not care about the rest of the card.
The match has to be as violent as they can push it. Anything less might be a disappointment.
I really hope that Joe wins this weekend.
I can’t see them doing that but he totally deserves it. They can still do Brock/Reigns at SS without the belt.
I don’t see them doing it either, but holy shit would it freshen up the main event scene. Having a champ, you know, actually there week to week…
I’d love to see it but I don’t think it’s gonna happen.
Yeah me either, it’s a pipe dream.
So the Revival main event another Main Event episode per taping earlier tonight.
Have these guys been on RAW since the return? I haven’t followed. Are they on the PPV?
Just during the segment where Cass turned on Enzo and another interview segment a couple of weeks before that.
Alicia Fox is the worst.
This crap is an embarrassment .
PWI feud of the year
Cedric Alexander vs. Dar/Fox
Is Tozawa/Neville the only CW match Sunday?
As of now, unless we get more of this Dar/Cedric garbage.
Probably on the pre show.
Doubt they’d put Ali vs. Gulak on the preshow. Could possibly get something like Swann vs. TJP or Gallagher against Nese or Kendrick.
Dar/Ced is what I was thinking.
Lot of credit to Neville – I look forward to his matches, this one especially.
I like the miz and I like Ambrose, but damn can they stop feuding.
Miz is the best.
Miz telling it like it is about Ambrose. Great stuff here.
Good promo here.
Miz’s Fourth of July suit is fire.
I see Rhyno turning to be the muscle.
Any chance Heath turns on Rhyno and joins the Miztourage?
Miz is fantastic.
Also, did anyone see the Ciampa news? Out until March.
Such a bummer.
Another solid start from Tanaka. 3 in a row.
Hopefully he has turned the corner. Nice job in that inning. Now the fucking bullpen needs to finish this one.
I almost destoryed my television when I saw Clippard warming up
If they have to do Cedric and Fox for this long, she should at least switch cruiserweights to be her boyfriend and attack Cedric. She could rotate through managing all the heels in the division like a D rate Jimmy Hart.
Or basically like Sunny in 96 too.
Dar could be traded up to Daivari, up to Nese, up to Kendrick, finally up to TJP. At least different guys will have something to do.
Ha, Ambrose ripping Great Balls of Fire
Dean Ambrose making fun of great balls of fire. Finallly someone did
It’s such a stupid name for a wrestling show.
Ambrose with a quality Dusty impression too!
Pretty good match there, good way to get over the Miztourage too.
They are putting over the Miztourage tonight.
Fun match too
Do we get Cena tonight on RAW as a surprise to confront Strowman?
Hmm hadn’t thought of that, definitely possible.
Strowman can back down and you get Cena vs. Strowman at SummerSlam.
Goldust is phenomenal
Sure is…hopefully he wins Sunday and gets something bigger to do.
Cesaro vs. Balor works for me.
I like how they are doing squashes with random matchups lately. Helps mix up the show.
As far as setting up feuds with angles and segments, tonight has been good for the most part. The action as a whole has stunk but they at least have solid direction for most of the feuds.
Yeah and on a go home show that is probably they way you want it if you had to choose.
True. Save the guys for the PPV. And I think they could be tired from the Japan tour too.
I like the direction of this interview segment.
God damn. Samoa Joe is the man.
Tremendous stuff. What a great fucking feud out of left field.
This is incredible.
That was great. I want to see them kill each other. I’d toss down money for a full-priced PPV to see that.
No doubt. Best built feud in quite a while. Two legit badass dudes that just want to wreck shit and be Champ.
Plus its totally different than every other title feud over the past few years.
I just hope the Brock formula is different for the actual match.
As the guy who paid full price for shows to live blog here after our launch, that’s a good measuring stick in 2017.
Ali is pretty good.
I like him a good bit
Neville has been great, keep the title reign going
They are putting Tozawa vs. Neville on the pre show.
I usually always pick the face in pre shows matches but I think this is a sign Neville retains.
I can see a title switch at SummerSlam as there is a lot of juice left in that feud.
It’s either that or quit stopping every show to tape the ropes.
(Or put a hot interview in the taping segment like tonight.)
This Wyatt promo is just overproduced nonsense.
I haven’t watched a raw or TV episode of WWE since 2013, and what do I see first? Bray Wyatt promo. So many questions:
Why does chaos fuel fire?
How does he embody chaos? (which more an abstract concept and less an entity.)
Why is he in a desert?
How did he make a decision back when humanoids still worshipped the sun?
Who is he feuding with?
What does he want?
When will he do something proactive?
The list goes on…
He followed the buzzards.
He did no such thing and its shameful you brought such trustworthy folks into this mess, sir.
All jokes aside, I can’t believe they let this get by. He literally told me no information. I didnt even know who he was fighting with until I looked it up.
Chaos is a accelerant, and
he got lost driving to Zach and Kelly’s vegas wedding.
Another dicey save from the Yankees. But thank God they got it done.
They should have just made this a six-man at the PPV with how the past few weeks have gone.
Ew! Braun licked his own nose.
In other news, Jinder Mahal is now just 2,760 days away from being the longest reigning wwe champion of all time.
January 22 2025, that years rumble is going to be interesting
Braun just killed Apollo
That match did more for Apollo than anything they have done for him since his debut.
I agree. They actually had him get offense on Braun. I thought it would be a squash.
He showed a lot of fire and guts, made Titus look good too.
At least with the Titus brand Apollo is doing something instead of aimlessly coming out smiling for random matches here and there
Titus brand is my favorite thing on raw.
Throw in the damn towel!!!!
Reigns and Braun have that awesome Brock and Show type chemistry…
They have been feuded for months but it doesn’t get old.
The spot with Reigns punching Strowman as soon as he got out of the ambulance was very good.
Really enjoyable finish. GBF looks like an incredible show.
July shows can be kind of a letdown before summerslam but I’m pumped for Sunday really solid card with matches that I actually care about and want to see.
RAW was good tonight.
I just jumped in during the Cesaro Balor match so will watch the rest tomorrow but it sounds like a solid show
The action wasnt much but as far as angles and promos it was strong.
That’s what you want on a go
home show before a ppv so I’m glad to hear that, some shows before a ppv it’s like they forget that a big show is that Sunday.
Agreed, fun go home for what is shaping up to be a really good PPV.
The only match I do not care about is Seth vs. Bray and despite the Women’s Division being a hot dumpster fire at the moment, Sasha vs. Alexa is at least something new.
Good go Home Show tonight for Sunday. Liked the final sequence with Roman & Braun, Brock & Joe was great, Finn/Cesaro was MOTN, Enzo Amore with a fantastic promo at the start, etc.
The 30 minute Iron Man Tag Match is a good way to go for the Hardys/Cesaro/Sheamus feud. First time i think we’ve had a Tag Iron Man.
Didnt they have some sort of Iron Man match in WWECW between MNM and Yang & Moore? I could be wrong though.
Oh wait i just remembered at least one Iron Man Tag. It was on Smackdown in early June of 2005 with MNM vs Hardcore Holly & Charlie Haas. It went 15 minutes with MNM winning.
Hot take: Impact tapings looked pretty sweet with some hot debuts. And it looks like they’re running the upcoming house shows like they did with GFW, which were pretty fun.
Can you explain the house show thing?
When we went to the GFW house shows, virtually the entire roster was available for autographs, pictures and merch. It was included in price of admission. It looks like they’re doing that again if you buy first few rows of seats, which is fairly reasonable for $50-$65.
Some of the guys weren’t particularly nice (looking at you, Gallows), but Karl Anderson was playing with my buddy’s baby niece, Duggan was great, Cabana was shilling, etc.
And if they bring these new X-Division guys out, I’d go if it wasn’t me.
