Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O’Doomers!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and if you still like good wrestling shows you were treated to one last night with a few very good matches and one that even I thought “am I watching a five-star match” and it’s become trickier in modern times because you really don’t know if you’ve watched it until you can look at what other people think and everyone’s in agreement that said match was extremely good. So yeah watch HITC if you haven’t and DEFINITELY watch the Shield vs. Drew/Dolph match which reminded everyone what all four guys are capable of AND made Drew look like the biggest star of the bunch so it accomplished everything it was supposed to.

Now for RAW…The build to the Super Duper Showdown and I really don’t know what the matches look like for that with the exception of HHH-Taker.

Seahawks and Bears are on MNF. Thankfully Daniel Bryan is off so he can watch his favorite team.

The Emmy Awards are tonight. Anyone who follows Michael Che on IG has gotten a kick out of him “hyping” this up for the past month.

Keep it clean.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. RAW is live tonight for the go home to Hell in the Cell. Surely we’ll have a report on the assault against the Shield led by Kevin Owens and others. Also, to the shock of no one, Renee Young was officially named to the RAW broadcast team full time to replace Jonathan Coachman.

They’ve also got to try to continue builds on the Super Show-Down and Evolution as there is a lot of stuff happening.

Meanwhile they will go against a Jets-Lions and Rams-Raiders MNF doubleheader along with several other shows. If you guys aren’t checking out “Better Call Saul” you should.  Also there’s the American Ninja Warrior finale. See which Ninja is the most Ninja-est!

Keep it clean!

Friday’s Night Thread of Doom

Howdy Blog O’Doomers!

It’s Friday night. It’s your Friday night thread.

There’s some tennis and mid-major college football on.

Chris Jericho explained his reasoning for working All-In and breaking his “only WWE in the states rule”. It kind of makes sense. I don’t think he burned any WWE bridges and he continued a feud from Japan and promoted his upcoming thing AND got to be part of something very unique. Sort of a win-win-win-win.

That’s all I got. Behave yourselves.

Hope those of you celebrating Labo(u)r Day had a good one.

RAW is live tonight. There’s builds to Hell in the Cell, the Super Show Down AND Evolution so good luck to them figuring out how to pile all that in one basket.

More college football on tonight. Florida State vs. Virginia Tech. Go Noles I guess.

Keep it clean!

Saturday All Day Thread!

Howdy Blog O’Doomers!

No clue about any wrestling stuff and too lazy to look it up. Is ALL IN this weekend? Ok, that’s something.

And Scott has an Old School rant/review….keep doing RAW from 1998 Scott! Don’t wimp out. No one likes a quitter!

But it’s college football day. Let’s hope Ohio State gets destroyed and I was going to root for North Carolina since I’m the mother of a Tar Heel BUT their coach is a moron so I hope they lose and he gets fired.

Keep it clean or don’t…I’m only responsible for you guys on Monday.

Hope you all had a great weekend. First and foremost I think Scott is doing too many different seasons of RAW anyway. I mean we’ve got 1994, 1997 and 1998? Seems like a lot of the same show from different sides. I say keep the 1998/99 RAWs until Wrestlemania XV to set up the first Rock-Austin megaclash (and one of the best three show-ending matches on Wrestlemania to that point….even though the rest of the card was pure ass). Then go to NWA maybe a few weeks before the Superpowers formed in 1986.

As for tonight we’ve got another live episode of RAW as Braun Strowman tries to figure out how to combat the re-united Shield. I, for one, like the thought of bringing back the Shield. The whole gimmick is they are the “Hounds of Justice” and they didn’t attack Strowman until he attacked Reigns before trying to cash in. That wasn’t cool. The way I see it they are performing the gimmick.

As for some news. Brock’s really gone so he can get clowned by Daniel Cormier and then return for Wrestlemania.

Former Bayley superfan Izzy has been training and recently took bumps in an indy match she won. She’s like 11 too. Interesting and strange. Looking at the clips, it seems like she was extremely well protected but she’s not even a teenager.

I really liked this rather spontaneous, ad-libbed promo from New Day, little disjointed at the end but if the WWE doesn’t give Big E some sort of a singles push soon they are really missing the boat.

What else is on TV? American Ninja Warrior….Better Call Saul….Bachelor in Paradise…Last week not going head-to-head with football until 2019.

I hope you had a great weekend and are enjoying a great Monday. I decided to enjoy a wrestling marathon yesterday catching both Takeover Brooklyn IV and Summerslam. I loved Takeover, excellent matches as usual, and I really enjoyed Summerslam as the right people went over and the right decisions were made for the most part. Obviously the match quality is different in the latter than the former but it’s time we accept that they focus on different things and cater to different parts of the fan base.

RAW is live tonight and with Roman Reigns as the champion instead of the chaser we might be able to go in a new direction for the first time in months. It’ll likely be a tough crowd in Brooklyn for him to make his first remarks on his current title run but he’s been through rough crowds before.

Outside of wrestling there’s Monday Night Football preseason game on between the Ravens and Colts.

So do your thing and keep it clean!

Unfortunately it’s another sad day in the wrestling world as we lost Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart today. Neidhart is, of course, one half of one of the best tag teams in wrestling history. As his nickname would indicate he was the power half of the Hart Foundation and, in my opinion, a very underrated worker and athlete in that role. He was also an incredibly underrated promo and one of those guys who I really enjoyed more from a promo when he was a babyface because he (and Bret for that matter) didn’t change their character much, they were just fan favorites. There are a couple of promos that stick out. One was a “25 percent” promo after the Hart Foundation split from Jimmy Hart.

I hope every is having a great Monday and had a wonderful weekend. RAW is LIVE tonight as they continue the build to Summerfest! Ronda Rousey will be in the ring TONIGHT to battle Alicia Fox. And maybe we will get more information on Brock Lesnar attacking Kurt Angle and sort of attacking Paul Heyman too.

Matt Hardy might be in some serious pain.

Corey Graves’ brother went a little extra with his pro-Donald Trump gimmick this past weekend

In case you missed it The Rock went to the ‘Gram this past week with a very nice RIP message for Brian Christopher

Lots of baseball on TV with Little League stuff added to the mix and Preseason football happening mid-week.

Non-sports television includes the season premiere of Better Call Saul and the season finale of the Bachelorette and another week of American Ninja Warrior.

After a tough Sunday for fans of pro wrestling maybe we can all look forward to RAW today (doubtful). For those stuck in a hole over the last 24 hours the wrestling community lost WWE Hall of Famer Nikolai Volkoff, long time southern territory star Brickhouse Brown and WWF Attitude Era star Brian Christopher, a.k.a Grandmaster Sexy, who is also the son of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler. Most people, save Sabu and New Jack, wished they all rest in peace.

As for RAW tonight we’re continuing the build to Summerslam as both Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey have been advertised to be on the show.

In other news apparently John Cena and Nikki Bella’s on-off relationship is off again, probably until next season begins taping.

In other TV there’s a Bachelorette reunion and American Ninja Warriors plus the season finale of Dietland. In sports there’s some baseball and whatever junk the sports networks can throw on TV to kill time until football season starts.

I hope all of you had a great weekend. It’s a Monday night and that means a live episode of RAW where Stephanie McMahon is back and has a BIG announcement. I don’t know and I don’t really care but let’s hope it’s something that might alter the current course of dredge that the promotion is in.

Outside of the big Stephanie announcement there’s a Roman-Lashley match that we’re going to see I think and Finn Balor will take on Drew McIntyre in another match. So that’s promising.

As for other sports television…not much besides baseball and whatever crap ESPN can throw on a channel. This weekend apparently it was corn hole and “spike ball” whatever that is.

As for non-sports television we’ve got The Bachelorette and American Ninja Warrior and a new episode of Dietland. It all sounds amazing.

And just like that we’re done with Extreme Rules and on to the next one which is…Summerslam? I think. Well at least that’s one that they might TRY to do something with and on the brighter side NXT TakeOver Brooklyn IV which should excite many of us. Extreme Rules was great if you love heels going over up and down the card and a show ended with Dolph Ziggler standing triumphant.

Anyhoo RAW is live tonight and surely something will happen with Brock Lesnar. My early guess is either he jobs out the title to Lashley quickly or it’s held up. If it’s held up than at least we have a tournament. And tournaments rule!

The Jason Jordan watch continues.

There is also a Home Run Derby happening tonight.
