Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O’Doomers!

It’s another Monday! Let’s see how far RAW’s ratings can fall now that football has taken ownership of Monday Nights for the next few months. RAW promises an Rollins-Rusev clash which is certainly something different as tonight is the go home show for Clash of the Champions.

There is football on as you can watch the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Chicago Bears in a game likely to feature two teams that won’t make the playoffs.

The World Cup of Hockey is also on tonight as Team North America takes on those evil commie bastards from Russia! USA No. 1! Canada No. 1! Russia..ack poo!

Keep it clean boys!

A little early today because the NFL game starts at 7 and then there’s RAW…but who’s actually going to watch RAW tonight? Luckily RAW isn’t coming off of a PPV so they don’t have to follow up last night’s card. For the record I thought it was a good PPV with a heck of a main event and generally entertaining up and down the card. Having such a short match list stretched the participants out and they responded.

So enjoy the Steelers and Washington and enjoy the 49ers and Rams unless that’s past your bedtime.

Keep it clean!

Hope you have all had a Happy Labor Day (or Labour Day if you speak Canadian) weekend. I know you’re all thrilled to see the fallout from Triple H being the alpha dog and making Kevin Owens champion because god forbid HHH doesn’t jump in to take someone’s heat when they start getting over.

Or you’ll watch the college football game like me and wait until the content dump on the Network tomorrow to see if this Last Battle of Atlanta thing is for reals.

I hope everyone is having a good Monday and had a great weekend. The off topic news for me today is the death of a comedic and artistic icon in Gene Wilder, who did so many great movies from Young Frankenstein to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory to the projects with Mel Brooks and Richard Pryor and others. He was an actor and comic I always loved.

In happier news the WWE Universal title will be determined (again) tonight between Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Big Cass and THE ROMAN EMPIRE~!

The will be the last Monday night that RAW won’t be competing with football of some sort until around the middle of January.

KEEP IT CLEAN!

What a great weekend for fighting sports! I granted my husband a date night where we watched the UFC card and it was an excellent action card with an amazing main event. Personally I thought the main event was a draw because Diaz should have gotten a 10-8 third round. But much respect for Conor pulling it together and winning the fourth round despite being gassed out.

Still have to watch NXT, probably will skip RAW to do that and I saw enough of Summerslam to feel like I saw everything. I’m not going to pile on the detractors of the “Universal Championship” belt other than to say it would have been nice to see something different and unique or classic if they decided to bring back one of the old title designs. Otherwise the crowd seemed kind of low key outside of the Styles-Cena match and the opener. And what about that Brock elbow? You gotta be a man to agree to take one of those things.

Anyway, there’s wrestling on TV, some Little League World Series action, no live preseason NFL and no Olympics but American Ninja Warriors is back!

KEEP IT CLEAN!

It’s Monday night and it’s time for some fights. Not a lot going on but the rent. There’s RAW tonight of course with its go home show before Summerfest which means we’re likely to have some sort of Brock-Orton thing. Austin had a decent podcast with Braun Strowman that’s worth checking out. He’s still terrible in the ring but he doesn’t WANT to be terrible so maybe there’s hope. Even Mark Henry had a little stretch where we liked him.

I don’t think there is any NFL preseason tonight but there’s more Olympics in its final stretch. Got a women’s 400M finals tonight and maybe some relay action. Plus there’s beach volleyball. Always some beach volleyball.

I wanted to get up a thread before the evening Olympic events start with the U.S. Men’s basketball team playing at 6 p.m. Should be a fun night of television and discussion. You can talk about Todd Grisham’s hot takes or Conor McGregor begging for attention before he gets choked out again or whatever might happen on RAW tonight or the Olympics.

I just hope it stops raining here soon. Flooding is not fun.

Another Network special in the books and now we’re in the era that the Network PPVs are going to be approaching three and a half hours while Summerslam will be four hours and of course Wrestlemania will last from Sunday through Tuesday.

I thought it was a really fun PPV if not great or anything. Just the hot crowd, a couple of nice surprises, a couple of nice promos and the ending gave it a nice, enjoyable feel. And sometimes that’s all you need.

Anyway the first RAW under a new crappy logo and hopefully improved announce team is tonight. There’s also the Bachelorette and whatever the hell the Democratic National Convention will turn out to be. So enjoy the evening.

Well draft night is here and it should be one of the few RAWs that would tickle the interest a casual fan viewer this time of year. The draft rules have been posted on another thread. Basically RAW gets 33% more picks because it’s a longer show and tag teams will be picked as one unit, etc. etc.

Normally I would expect some sort of a theme with the shows splitting championships, assuming the U.S. champion will go to Smackdown and WWE champion stays on RAW. I would assume they will split the tag and I-C champions too.

Otherwise it should be an interesting night. As for other viewing the Mets and Cubs are playing on ESPN and of course it’s the Republican National Convention this week which could be a comedy or a tragedy.

I hope everyone had an awesome weekend and stuff. Another Monday night is on tap at the Blog of Doom!

Some of you might want to watch Roman-less RAW or others might choose to watch the Home Run Derby, which used to be fun when guys were on steroids and using corked bats and stuff.

Or there’s The Bachelorette and I think this week Aaron Rodgers’ brother (The guy these thirsty chicks are gunning for) talks about why his famous brother wants little to do with the family. Joy.

And surely there’s other stuff so KEEP IT CLEAN!

Monday Day & Night Open Mic

Grilling, boating and drinking is all about to happen on America Day so I’ll be out of service for a good minute.

However, I leave you with an extended and all-day version of Monday Night Open Mic so you can talk about Kevin Durant taking over the American sports narrative for a day and laugh at the people on Twitter for calling it a “bitch move” (their words, not mine).

Or you can talk about something else. I don’t care because this day is about Freedom and being an American and if you’re not an American then you’re not free and screw you…or something like that (their words, not mine…really going on the Twitter is a bad idea).

Seriously have fun and keep it clean. If you are going to be going hard on the party front today please be safe, be smart and don’t drive and don’t let your friends make that mistake either.
