Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O’Doomers!

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.

Keep it clean!

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.

I hope all of you had a great weekend and a great Monday. After watching an England soccer fail I think I can skip RAW tonight and just read the comments on how much it sucked. I’m actually thinking of taking my RAW hiatus early this year until the Draft show.

With that being said if you want some Network content to watch tonight Go to RAW 350 (I think) and start at the Rock’s promo at about 1:02. You can skip the crappy Dudleys vs. Godfather/D’Lo match and get to the 10-man tag featuring HHH, X-Pac, Benoit, Saturn and Malenko vs. Rock, Cactus Jack, Rikishi and Too Cool. I think that was the first official match for the Radicalz.

The crowd in Dallas treated the match like it was a Wrestlemania main event back when Wrestlemania main events had ridiculous heat. It was a very piece of a business with a nice return at the end.

Anyway there’s RAW on and some baseball and of course SHARK WEEK~!

Only a man as talented as LeBron can turn Cleveland from a shitty town to a shitty town with an NBA championship! What a man.

Anyway. I finally saw MiTB, thought the Styles-Cena and main event were in the **** range with the MitB slightly lower. I like the immediate cash in because the briefcase is really just death for whoever holds it these days.

Anyway enjoy your Monday. There’s RAW and baseball and a bunch of summer shows. I would suggest the ESPN Documentary on OJ Simpson if you want to binge watch something.

Obviously this was a very dark weekend for the people of Central Florida and especially Orlando. My husband and I spent many hours hanging out in downtown Orlando on Orange Avenue going to the different restaurants and establishments. It was one of our favorite places to go and meet with our friends that lived in Orlando. We rang in the year 2000 in downtown Orlando. Just a horrible feeling thinking of the bloodshed and innocent people getting murdered…it’s tough to think about.

On to brighter things. It’s Monday. There’s a wrestling show on but more importantly there’s a basketball game and a championship could be decided tonight.

Keep it clean guys 🙂

Oh Tropical Storm Colin you were so cute…like you were a great excuse to cancel all my appointments and spend today curled in bed reading. Hurricane season can be constructive.

So what’s the big news? Yep whoever made the bet that Brock Lesnar would unretire from the UFC and fight again before CM Punk had his debut has won the pool. At this point Punk should just give it up. Most of the people anticipating his debut have moved on and it seems like a lost cause.

Anyway, RAW is on tonight and hopefully it won’t be as bad as last week. Enjoy your evening and KEEP IT CLEAN!
