Steph here, lovelies, and we’re on a short recap today, because WCPW knackered me out, and staying up until 4am doing play-by-play wasn’t something the body could cope with. So, we’ll do basic match commentary, minor play-by-play, and we’ll hope to have this up before SmackDown goes live! Ah, goals.
So, we’re getting SmackDown live, and a brand split too. I want to be excited, I really do, because I’ve been saying a brand split would work out nicely for a while now, and it’s nice to see WWE doing something people have been asking for. The recapper in me says that now, if I’m the only one available that week, I might have to recap a PPV Sunday, Raw Monday and then SmackDown Tuesday – and these don’t start airing until 1am my time, so I’m going to struggle with that. But aside from selfish reasons, here’s a few good questions about the split.
The unlikely alliance of Ireland, England, Bulgaria, and Evil Mexico began the Raw after Survivor Series 2015. Sheamus had already attracted King Barrett using his power of bioluminescence, and brought Rusev and Alberto Del Rio under his (dirty, foreign) wing as well. What did these four men have in common that brought them together so quickly? Well, uh, hmmm. They all have accents I guess.
We open on a video package recapping Payback, particularly the results of the Shane/Stephanie debacle and how the main event ended. I appreciate that there is at least for the time being an answer, but this whole thing has gone on much longer than I would have liked. AJ Styles and Roman Reigns’ match for Extreme Rules is also discussed, and there’s more talk about this being a new “era” of WWE, which… well, I’m skeptical about, given the complete lack of any title changes at the pay-per-view, but of course eras are about more than just titles. I’m going to keep an open mind.
So Shane O’Mac is leading the ship again, and he’s out to tell us that he’s very happy to be in control again, as nothing matters, and that WrestleMania match was just for funsies. He says he’s going to show us fresh new matches and exciting things, and one of those is Sami Zayn vs. AJ Styles.
Super quick round-up today, as last week’s round-up was superceded by WrestleMania! The shows have been pretty damn good this week, so let’s make sure we cover what you missed.
It’s been a long two weeks without our regular dose of kay-fabulous gossip, darlings, and your throats must be simply parched without the sweet, clear, cool water of homosocial dalliances. Never fear, sweethearts, we’re back, and just like those rumours of Triple H’s… sledgehammer, we’re bigger than ever! Double everything is always better, just ask the bottom in a double penetration scene!
So, we’ll start off with what made everyone’s hearts all a-flutter, which was known loverboys Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns giving us a sneak peek of their travel arrangements…
Hellooooo and welcome to Monday Night RAW! Boy, last night was certainly a… night, wasn’t it? I bet a few of us are hung over, whether from partying in celebration or just drinking to forget. As a Dean Ambrose fan, I’ll give you ten guesses where I fall, and the first nine don’t count. Anyway, here we go, Raw time! (Dear Crossfit Jesus, please let this be a good one, thank you and amen.)
Michael Cole insists my WrestleMania hangover doesn’t exist, and he wants us all to party. Byron Saxton calls the fans ‘vocal’ and… good ol’ JBL insists that sometimes we boo who we really want to cheer and cheer who we really want to boo.
That’s the fastest they’ve ever gotten me incredibly angry. I’m almost impressed.
Hello, fellow wrestling fans, it’s time for another weekly round-up of the hot and shameless romances happening right under our noses on WWE’s programming. We’ve not had to look too closely, but our dedicated research team have been hands off socks and on cocks for you to make sure you’re up to date with all… Continue reading GAYWATCH: 18th-25th March ’16
A shorter recap today, brought to you by your English recapper’s inability to remember that daylight saving’s time has happened in the US but not in the UK yet, and thus scheduling her pre-Raw nap incorrectly! Whoops! Have some rough notes before I actually make it out of bed and into the action! Art, as… Continue reading Rehash: Raw 21st March ’16
