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.

KEEP IT CLEAN!

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend. We continue on the road to Extreme Rules, which…doesn’t look as crummy as the last PPV did at least. Most of that it’s thanks to things happening on the Smackdown side but whatever.

Raw is live tonight. If you were hoping to see Fandango, sorry to disappoint but he’ll likely be on the shelf for the rest of 2018 with an torn labrum. I hope it’s not in his primary fandango-ing arm. Maybe they can shuttle Tyler Breeze to 205 Live for a while and let him have some good matches.

Different reports have the dates that Brock Lesnar will get destroyed by Daniel Cormier. Some say November at MSG and others say he can’t compete until his time in the testing pool is done in January. Either way he’s getting FUBAR but will have plenty of time to return for Wrestlemania.

Ric Flair had a successful surgery and should be able to go “Woo’ on a bitch sooner than later.

Otherwise there’s baseball and tennis highlights and stuff.

I hope our Canadian BoD’ers had a tremendous Canada Day yesterday and the American contingent on the board are looking forward to Independence Day on Wednesday.

Tonight we have an another live episode of RAW as we move toward the Extreme Rules PPV later in the month. There’s going to be a counseling session between frenemies Sasha Banks and Bayley that might be a disaster but will likely be heavily analyzed either way. Expect more shenanigans with Kevin Owens and Braun Strowman and there’s probably a Reigns/Rollins vs. Ziggler/McIntyre on tap for tonight as well.

Also stay on the look out for the return of Jason Jordan, who sadly got injured right about the time he was starting to develop into something interesting. He might return or be released, who knows.

Lots of baseball and LeBron talk elsewhere in the sports world. Keep it clean!

This is being done earlier in the day than I’m used to so it’s a little bit of a quiet Monday so far. Charlotte put some photos from her spread in the upcoming ESPN Body Issue on her Instagram page.

RAW is live tonight and the only announced match I can remember is the Ziggler/Rollins rematch for the Intercontinental title. Hard to believe Dolph Ziggler is still a thing.

In other TV, I think the College World Series starts tonight or you could watch Russia get exposed by a good soccer team in one of the World Cup replays.

Happy Monday! We survived the build to MITB and those that watched the whole show (not me) survived that too. I can say the pieces I did watch were perfectly fine and enjoyable so sometimes the final result is better than the process.

Anyway RAW is back at it with four weeks until Extreme Rules so expect a quicker build for that one.

Outside of wrestling there’s plenty of baseball either professional or college so you guys have at it. And some World Cup Replays.

Also a new episode of Dietland and the MTV Movie and TV Awards are on tonight.

Hope you have all had a fantastic Monday. Is this the final week of build for Money in the Bank? I hope so. God knows I am ready for whatever the July PPV is.

RAW is Live tonight I think.

Despite being WWE Universal Champion since the start of the Obama presidency, Brock Lesnar is apparently eager to step in the octagon and face Jon Jones according to carny apprentice Dana White. Drug testers can stay home.

Not sure what else is on. Maybe some College World Series. I’ll probably watch those episodes of Flip or Flop sitting on my DVR. Oh yeah, and there’s the Bachelorette. Some WWE guys need to do that show. I nominate Dolph Ziggler.

I hope you are all having a happy Monday and a great start to the month of June. Not much to talk about today. If you missed it the WWE Network put up a ton of Mid-South (yay!) and a Brisco-Flair Hidden Gem (yay!) plus Collections on Money in the Bank (match and ensuing cash-in) and The Godfather for June. So plenty of new content drops there.

RAW continues its build to Money in the Bank, a build that I have completely missed. Heck I’m still wondering when Authors of Pain will return to TV.

Outside of RAW we have Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals or you can talk about John Cena being totally cool with being a Dad now and all kinds of stuff.

*Trying this again. Disqus just got crappy on me*

Okay Blog O’Doomers,

We got Smackdown in progress, hopefully it’s running smoothly. And 205 Live is coming on afterward I think. I really need to watch that show, it sounds fairly decent despite the apathy.

The network added some 1983 and 1984 Mid-South this week. IMO that’s the most binge-able of the territories on the network. Each show flows smoothly and is fun as hell.

Roseanne is still canceled.

Hope my American friends are enjoying Memorial Day and the worldwide audience here at the BoD are enjoying their Monday.

The dog days of RAW continues with another week of building to Money in the Bank. Meanwhile most of us will probably be watching Game 7 of Warriors-Rockets or Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final between Vegas and Washington.

Roman had an odd exchange with a grown man that claimed on Twitter the big dog was being mean to a 10-year-old and…I believe Roman to be honest…the old guy was probably being an ass clown. If you’re an adult and you see a wrestler out (and if you live in my neck of the woods where 75% of the WWE roster lives) and they are eating with their families…give them a little courtesy and space. Seriously.

I hope everyone had as great of a weekend as I did. Most of you that have been around the board know that I celebrated my son’s graduation from high school love the weekend and I’ve run through the gambit of emotions as a parent. Those of you that have older kids know that those 17-18 years go by fast and those of you with younger kids enjoy it because it moves fast.

The big news in rasslin’ entertainment is that Fox is willing to put a ring on Smackdown for about a billion on their broadcast channel. Which means NBC/Universal will be paying out the yang to keep RAW. And with money like that being dished out I guarantee if you didn’t think the writers gave a rats behind about your thoughts on the product before, you can be certain of it now.

Team Cenabella is whole again after their totally-legit breakup

RAW might be live…IDAF because I’m watching the Lightning-Caps and Cavs-Celtics tonight. Or just bingeing the rest of Cobra Kai

I hope you had a good weekend and are enjoying your Monday. RAW is in England tonight I think so I don’t know if it’s live or not and I probably won’t watch anyway.

Ronda Rousey was named at Nia Jax’s next challenger for the RAW Women’s title because of her impressive string of victories. Here was how they set it up.

NBA playoffs tonight is the long awaited start to the Rockets-Warriors series while Vegas and Winnipeg get after it in Game 2 of the NHL Western Conference Final. Meanwhile, what the hell Lightning?!?!

Happy Monday!! I didn’t watch Backlash, probably won’t watch Backlash and from the sounds of things I’ll be better for it. RAW is live tonight and when the most exciting thing I can think of is Jason Jordan’s return than we’ve definitely hit the lean months of the promotion…and that’s no offense to Jordan, who was actually starting to find something when he got hurt.

As for the non-wrestling stuff. LeBron and the James Gang continue their one-sided NBA feud with Toronto, still refusing to put the young Raptors over just once. NHL Playoffs have the Penguins and Predators fighting for their Stanley Cup lives in separate games. Meanwhile Boston is eliminated…HA!

What else is on? Umm Jeopardy starts its two-week teachers tournament. The Voice’s never-ending season continues and I dunno check your local listings for the rest.
