The SmarK RAW Rant – 11.09.98

One week to go until Survivor Series!

Taped from Dallas, TX, drawing a sellout 13,000 and obliterating Nitro in the ratings by the biggest margin in history to that point.

I’ve been hearing good things about that Kurt Angle guy doing dark matches at this point. Seems like they have high hopes for him.

Your hosts are JR & Jerry Lawler

Smackdown – August 14, 2018

Date: August 14, 2018
Location: Bon Secours Wellness Arena, Greenville, South Carolina
Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves, Byron Saxton

It’s the final show before Summerslam and there isn’t much to do this time around. Sunday is set up and unless they add one more match to the card, which is entirely possible around here, I wouldn’t get my hopes up on much happening tonight. Hopefully the promos are good enough to carry things. Let’s get to it.

Mark Wahlberg Talks Ronda Rousey

Hi Scott,


Actor Mark Wahlberg called the Dan Patrick Show and talked about a variety of topics including his new movie, “Mile 22”. Asked about Ronda Rousey, Wahlberg mentions that if he got inside the octagon with Rousey,
he would never try to fight with her. Wahlberg says Rousey did an amazing job in their film together and that she will continue to grow further in her acting career. 


In the segment, Wahlberg addresses his friendship with Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, saying he wouldn’t be surprised if the Browns end up with a winning record this season. The actor goes on
to state that Tom Brady is the greatest of all time, and that his five super bowl championships in eight appearances cements his legacy. In the interview, Wahlberg jokes saying he does not do the Tom Brady method and needs to do “real strength and conditioning”
instead of working out with bands.


Wahlberg states that he is indeed a soccer fan and how this year’s World Cup gave him the chance to enjoy the game even more. With the latest surrounding the Columbus Crew potentially moving, Wahlberg addresses
the situation by saying he is looking into helping the Crew stay in Columbus, but he will need to first speak with New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft to see if it is a good investment.


Below we’ve included direct links to the clips and the full interview. If you decide to utilize them, we would sincerely appreciate you mentioning that The Dan Patrick Show is available on DIRECTV CH. 239.

Have you seen these machines?

TAKE MY MONEY!  If you scroll to the end of their homepage, there's an email where I believe you can send a request for a free console to review for your blog.  They may or may not respond but wouldn't hurt to ask.  Would love to read your thoughts!

Ha, I literally would have no room anywhere in my house for one of those.  My man cave is already stuffed as it is, and I have a Raspberry Pi hooked up, but these are certainly badass. 

CM Punks Popularity

According to those in attendance at the recent Progress wrestling show in Chicago. The mention of Punks name got booed so now theres apparently concern about how the crowd is gonna treat him at his signing in 2 months. Was the recent Colt Cabana discovery finally enough to kill Punks popularity with the hardcore crowds?
We can only hope.
