Another big week in the wrestling world this week! Let’s get to it!
Well, I’m joining us a little late to the kickoff show, and it’s Tom Philips back in the social media lounge, talking about talking to Rusev and Lana tonight. He looks a little less like a small boy who’s made a studio in his bedroom. Apparently it’s cool to have Dean’s girlfriend talk about what a lunatic he is. And I’m joined by a small black cat and my very, very unimpressed wife, who thinks Dean Ambrose looks like mashed potato, and thinks Mitch is a stupid name for a plant. She doesn’t know the struggles we’ve seen. Her only comment on ‘it’s the gift of Jericho, drink it in’ is ‘gaaaaaaay’. That’s the woman I love.
Well, here we are again! I’ve clambered out of bed after my pre-Raw nap, kissed my wife and apologised for making her the sort of woman who sleeps alone on a Monday or Thursday night, and we’re back to the daily grind. Let’s go.
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.
Post-Roadblock Raw, and it’s time to see how things have been shaken up by a network special where not a single title changed hands. Seems to suggest that we’re going to have a wee bit of a stagnant title scene until WrestleMania; titles need to stay where they are for storylines, so there won’t be… Continue reading Rehash: Raw March 15th ’16
We start Raw with a recap of last week’s Raw, Ambrose going after Lesnar and asking to be pulled apart. I like that they’re highlighting this side of the feud – of course, we know that Roman then broke in, even after Dean had asked him not to, and then Roman’s brilliantly impressed face as… Continue reading Rehash: Raw 15th Feb ’16
Your recapper is not ashamed to admit that she’s pretty damn ill right about now, so this Raw is being watched several days late and with a cheat sheet of jokes from the second in command. But I was going to have to watch it anyway, because Daniel Bryan is leaving us, and we’re going to… Continue reading Rehash: Raw 8th Feb ’16
Your recapper would like to apologise for the way this recap is going to go, because I’ve been in and out of the ER for three days now, have numerous bruises and needle marks, and have now got no pain meds that work. I may have to pause certain parts of this, or mute them,… Continue reading Rehash: Raw 1st Feb ’16
The New Day kick off Raw with a mention of Naomi’s birthday, because they look out for their girls, and they say there’s a party going on, a festival, a jubilee. Big E has a towel off with a Steeler’s towel, which is a good way to incite a riot later. So they’ve come out… Continue reading Rehash: Raw 30th Nov ’16
So, before I was even ready, we found out that the traditional 5 vs 5 match was going to be on the PRE-SHOW? ARE YOU PUTTING CESARO ON THE PRE-SHOW AGAIN, WWE? So, to count the teams out. Team Heel: Miz, Bo Dallas, Stardust, The Ascension Team Face: Neville, The Dudley Boyz, Titus O’Neill, and… Continue reading Rehash: Survivor Series 2015
