Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O’Doomers!

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.

Keep it clean!

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.

Keep it Clean!

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.

Keep it Clean!

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!

Hope those of you in the United States are having a wonderful holiday weekend while those of you not from the USA had a great weekend and are enjoying your Monday. Been great here, very hot and today my upper body is somewhere between a lobster and a cherry tomato so I’m just waiting for the aloe to quick chill so I can get some relief from this sunburn.

Great night for sports with Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals and Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals tonight. And given that RAW usually struggles on holiday weekends the competition should make RAW’s ratings even rougher than usual.

However, I’ll be here, hanging around the comments and I hope you join but remember to KEEP IT CLEAN!

Another Network Special is behind us and again I think the good is outweighing the bad. They seem to have good action storylines going with the WWE title transitioning from Styles, who looked great in his efforts, to Seth Rollins and the history there. The 4-way fight for the I-C title has been good. But I’m most happy that Rusev is back in the mix. I’m unapologetically a huge Rusev mark because he somehow has managed to stay credible as a brute powerhouse while being absolutely hilarious and having some of the best comic timing of anyone on the roster. He survived the heat from the office that Lana put on him and was the only redeeming from the crappy League of Nations. I’m hopeful they will give him a good program to work with but two of the three better babyfaced on the roster (Cesaro and Sami Zayn) are muddled in the I-C situation. Before he got hurt, they were looking at a face turn for Bray Wyatt and maybe they should continue that route and put him with Rusev.

Anyway, I’m going to prepare for the NBA and NHL game and try to catch some of RAW. I wish you well in your Monday Night endeavors.

It’s Monday it’s time for the usual Monday night stuff and a top program that’s becoming very interesting. Normally the product loses me around this time until Summerslam but the programs are good and I like the new talent that’s come in. And the fact that it looks like they are going to give another run to guys I really like (like Rusev) has me watching a little more.

Enjoy your Monday night festivities and KEEP IT CLEAN.

Hope everyone’s having a wonderful day and had a wonderful weekend. It’s another beautiful day here in Florida but it’s getting hotter.

Anyhoo, good PPV on last night. There was a great match with Zayn-Owens and three very good matches with the Main Event, Ambrose-Jericho and Miz-Cesaro. Really can’t complain too much with that sort of quality action but I know people will. I thought the Main event was fine. Yeah it was overbooked but there was some charm in the overbooking. A.J. and Roman put together nice spots, nice false finishes and told a good story. Both guys worked hard. I know it’s unpopular to say anything positive about Roman Reigns but I liked the match and thought it was a good effort for his first one-on-one title defense. The fact that they can squeeze a return match out of it says a lot about how the people are responding to Styles and what he’s done.

Anyway talk freely. Watch your TV spots but keep it clean!
