Notes from Raw… LIVE!

> Hey Scott–
>
> I attended Monday night's show (seated on the aisle that Reigns came down, so you can rest assured I gave him what for, sir!) and I'm surprised we don't have a rant up yet, but some notes for the BoD from the live experience:
>
> 1. The crowd noise was WAY muted on the broadcast, as we were a hell of a lot hotter than that. But since we were chanting a lot of stuff that doesn't tow company line, I guess that's expected.
>
> 2. Michael Cole being murdered does indeed equal ratings, and it equals amazing crowd pops as well. Brock is now the supreme babyface of the company.
>
> 3. During the commercial break in the Diva's match, there was a mind-numbingly bad rest hold sequence, which the crowd completely turned on, leading to the following classy chants, "You suck Cena", "You suck Bryan", "You suck Uso", "You suck Kidd", and "You suck Punk." Sadly, the crowd didn't know who Paige has ever dated, so no chants were offered her way.
>
> 4. The anti-Cena stuff was deafening. Easily a 80-20 split against him, at least.
>
> 5. In the main event, the crowd literally plowed through chants for the entire NXT roster before going into the wave. Then congratulated itself with a chant of "We are awesome."
>
> 6. And in possibly the best moment of the night, Lillian Garcia is out plugging tickets for RAW's return in August, which prompts the crowd to chant, "We don't live here!"
>
> Cheers! Paige is dating Sami Zayn as of last scuttlebutt, FYI.

DBSM’s Live WM Report

“Live” as in “back home four hours after the show has ended” Hey, Scott, this is BonzaiDBSM somewhat fresh from WM31. I figured I’d throw in some observations from being in the Wrestlemania crowd if you’d be so kind to post them; why listen to random Meltzer crap on the BoD Daily Update about how the crowd was when you have a top-5 BoD commentator, a BoD C-List Champion and three-time BoD fantasy sports champion right in the thick of it? This was my fifth PPV and second Mania (the other being 21, 10 years ago), but my first stadium show. They couldn’t have picked a better day for it, it was about 70 degrees all day even the sun right on us. It also made for a cool spectacle to have most of the show drenched in sunlight WM9-style (although some entrances suffered for it), only darkening for the main event. Sounds weird to say, but I wish I had brought sunscreen for Mania. My sis bought me the ticket as a Christmas present and got me a decent middle-pavilion seat. Although I was directly facing one of the ring support pillars, they at least had the foresight to make them semi-transparent; while the action got obscured a bit at times, it could’ve been worse (I imagine it was the first few years they did it), but I hope in the future they figure out a way to not block people’s views. I don’t know if it was a kickback from the Reddit stuff about security removing the dressed-up fans a few weeks ago or the usual enthusiastic Mania goers, but you could barely walk a few feet without seeing someone dressed up head to toe as a wrestler (even CM Punks!). In the row in front of me, there was a group of folks who were dressed as Daniel Bryan (complete with homemade Bryan trunks and shin guards), Bray Wyatt (with natural long hair and beard to match), Taker, a girl dressed as Paige (with fishnets!), and the clear winner, LANA, with blonde bun and red skirt-suit. Fans and little kids were posing with them throughout the day, and it was such a cool sight to see that I hope Kevin Dunn loses a lot of sleep over it. Also got a ton of compliments on my Finn Balor shirt from folks sporting NXT shirts themselves (and nearly every major player there was covered by somebody in the vicinity). NXT really feels like this weird “secret handshake” among fans now, which is friggin’ neat. Pre-game stuff were fun clusterfucks that got the crowd nice and riled up; Nattie’s sharpshooter got a bigger pop than most of the male combatants got. Mizdow easily had one of the biggest reactions of the night finally turning on Miz, but of course, WWE can’t let us have too much of a good thing and not enough of a bad thing, and you could feel the air go out of the place when fucking Big Show won. What is it about frying pan hands that gives Vince such a stiffy for this guy? Not that an ARMBAR win would’ve helped Sandow anyway; just ask Cesaro how that worked out for him.  Crowd favorite in the IC match was clearly Bryan, but it did seem a little muted than when I was at Summerslam 2013 (could’ve just been the stadium space too). Ziggler and Ambrose are still big fan favorites despite WWE saddling them with dumb shit, and crowd went dead silent for Luke Harper’s entrance; I don’t still get why they split off him and Rowan from Bray, as they both have zero heat without him. Crowd loved Ambrose being dumped into the splitting ladder and the Bryan/Ziggler finish; hopefully they may actually do something worthwhile with this run. Crowd was a bit torn with the Orton/Rollins, they kinda wanted to cheer for both guys (only J&J got a lion’s share of heel heat) and wound up hesitant backing either. Didn’t really pick up noise-wise till the finish, but the Curb Stomp to RKO reversal got everyone into a tizzy. As someone who was also at 21, I feel like I can lay claim to seeing the two best RKO reversals ever with that and the chokeslam reversal 10 years ago, although someone can vouch for the Shooting StaRKO on Bourne a few years ago. Say what you want about the Sting/HHH match having little significance or the silly brand synergy for the Terminator entrance, but the place was definitely going apeshit for this from jump street. DX got one of the bigger pops of the night, but nWo blew that away because no one really expected THAT. It was a good way to overbook it to mask the limited capability of this matchup and the fan pandering worked (even I was going nuts seeing DX square off against the nWo). Crowd was kinda stunned HHH won; it definitely seemed like Sting was going over when he broke the sledgehammer, but the crowd at least didn’t rebel against the finish. I hate that Sting/HHH handshake in hindsight; if HHH was going to heel up later in the Authority segment, then don’t fucking try to get the respectful pop here. It harkens back to the revolving door HHH stuff pre-WMXXX and it’s dumb; commit to being the bad guy if that’s what you’re doing. As insufferable as Stephanie can be in her role, at least she stays in that zone, but HHH wants the cake and eat it too.  I bet the 30-minute stretch of concert-Divas-HoF was death at home, but I will actually defend it. With the recent WM strategy of quality over quantity on the card, there are hardly any blows for the crowd to go to the pisser or grab food, so this stretch was very welcome. I was able to put some charge in my phone (seriously, phone charging stations should be mandatory at all arenas), go to the urinal, grab some more food and got back just in time for Rusev’s entrance. It must have been hard sitting through it if you’re at home, but I liked that they stacked it for the people in attendance; it was like a super-sized hockey intermission, and I think I prefer that over doling out smaller breaks throughout the show. Crowd was definitely dead as a doornail for the Diva match; if they’re serious about Hashtag Give Divas A Chance, they need to start by cutting bait with the Bellas and start bringing up the girls from Full Sail who know how to pop a crowd with ring work.  For Rusev/Cena, crowd started about 75/25 in Rusev’s favor; it felt like they cranked up Cena’s theme a little louder than the others, and it needed to to drown out the giant JOHN CENA SUUUUCKS chant set to his theme. To his credit, he was able to swing the crowd heavily in his favor by the end (around the time of that nifty little springboard Stunner), even though it kinda felt like the crowd was saying “the only thing we hate more than Cena is Russians beating Americans.” Still, it was probably nice for Cena to get a win and get the hero treatment from the crowd. While the pre-show panel was recapping some of the earlier events, Triple H and Steph came to the ring. The crowd gave a Triple H a solid NXT chant (and gave Itami a nice HI-DE-O chant earlier in the royale); even though he was about to heel it up, that had to be a feather in his cap. Steph and HHH did their usual Main Event Promo thing but everyone knew someone was coming because a cameraman was perched on the ramp the whole time facing the entrance, so everyone could smell (heh) something was coming. Rock easily had the best pop of the night, truly nuclear stuff (I have a feeling the Bray/Taker video package got audibled out because of how long Rocky soaked up the cheers, pushing them to 7:10 local time). I was marking out like mad because I’d never seen him live before and now have completed my wrestling Mount Rushmore by having seen Hogan, Austin, Flair, and Rock in the ring, in person, albeit with only Flair wrestling and that was in 2002. Ronda also got a mega pop of her own, and whenever she wants to stop killing bitches dead and snapping arms like twigs, she could easily come be the female Brock in WWE if the NXT ladies are populating the main roster down the road. As you mentioned in the rant, Rock and Ronda’s pops easily dwarfed most of the roster’s, although the crowd did boo that Ronda didn’t really do much to Steph. She couldn’t fake a Kimura for us? Come on, someone — whether if it was WWE’s or UFC’s call — let us down on that. Bray and Taker easily were dud of the night if we’re discounting the Diva match. Here’s where the daylight atmosphere really killed them; both entrances need a darkened arena and effects-laden lighting, but in the daytime, you can’t see the cell phone “fireflies” and the zombie scarecrows just looked silly, and Taker lacked a certain je ne sais quoi in the sun, kinda like Batman. I don’t know if the crowd was burned out from the Rocky/Ronda segment, if Taker has no pull with the crowd post-Streak, or if the crowd just didn’t care for this feud (likely a combination of all three), but the crowd flatlined for this. The usual Taker spots and near-falls didn’t get a rise out of anyone; the pre-show stuff with half the stands full got a bigger response. The crowd came alive a bit at the Crab Walk/Sit-Up spot and finally popped for the final Tombstone, but this was a clear sign that they’ll need to figure out something special next year for Mean Mark if they’re gonna use him. It’s pretty telling that an eight-year-old kid in my section said aloud, “If Undertaker wins, this should be his last match.” It was kinda stunning how little the crowd was into it, even during the entrances; it didn’t help that the match just felt like a WWE video game Story Mode match with objectives (“Hit Old School” “Tombstone Bray twice”) with no real psychological flow.  There was no mistaking who was heel and who was face in the main event (hint: it wasn’t what WWE wanted). To Roman’s credit, the little fan support he did have, man, they really supported him to a fervent degree. It was almost like an affront to them that someone could boo Roman, but boo they did. The Brock match formula is still golden; suplex guys dead and let the crowd revel in the destruction. Counting the suplexes was fun for everyone, but I think alcohol was taking control because people in my section started adding on two or three more out of thin air like a week in Goldberg’s undefeated streak. They made a fantastic call in sending Rollins out there; I think everyone knew a cash-in was coming, but feared Roman would still get a moment in the sun a la Bryan at Summerslam 2013, so props to whoever decided to send Rollins out there before the match was decided. He came out to 100% crowd approval before the cash-in and after the win; WWE couldn’t script a better way to finish it if they wanted to end the show with crowd support but the title off Brock. Post-signoff, Seth posed with the belt for minutes; Brock stared off in a dazed “WTF just happened” manner, but Roman looked like he was tearing up, like “Maria Menounous trying to finish her Backlund speech amidst the booing” tearing up — could they make this guy any more of a puss? He got booed on his way back up the stage too. All in all, for the second straight year, a bad product didn’t stop them from putting on a hell of a WrestleMania, and this one is more impressive – maybe not better, but more impressive — considering the lowered expectations and given it didn’t have the Bryan story of last year. Despite all the shitty builds, the crowd was hot for pretty much everything sans the Divas and Taker match, and I think WWE can all pat themselves on the back here for delivering the goods. It is worth noting most of the biggest pops of the night went to part-timers and no-timers; with a bigger stadium slated for next year, expect a heavier dose of it as long as they’re not interested in putting any of their current guys on that level. That said, Bryan, Cena, and encouragingly Rollins still have a lot of crowd support on the main event stage, Ambrose, Ziggler, and Sandow are still very over, and Reigns can still be salvaged, so hopefully they give these guys the ball in the next 12 months. I also dug that the crowd was really into enjoying the show, I never got the sense that they would turn on anything Rumble-style except for a possible Roman win, and WWE deftly dodged that. Everyone was pretty much smiling and chanting (lots of ROLLINS chants on the way out) going home, and that’s how it should be leaving WrestleMania. All in all, I had a fucking blast and hopefully you folks at home did too.

WWE Tables, Ladders, Chairs, and Stairs Live Thread

The preshow starts tomight at 7pm EST on the Network with two members of the new day going up against Goldust & Stardust. Other matches include

John Cena vs.Seth Rollins in a Tables Match with the stipulations of Cena losing his title shot if he does not win this match

The Usos vs. Miz & Damien Mizdow for the Tag Team Titles

Nikki Bella vs. AJ Lee for the Diva’s Title

Dolph Ziggler vs. Luke Harper for the IC Title in a Ladder Match


Ziggler won the title after taking Harper off of a ladder then climbing up to reach the belt. Brutal match with all sorts of crazy bumps. The first half was slow and seemed nothing more than a collection of crazy bumps with Ziggler overselling like crazy but this got a lot better as it went along. both guys bled and their bodies were covered in welts. This match did more for the IC Title than anything else has over the past few years (16:40) ***1/2.

The Usos vs. Miz & Damien Mizdow for the Tag Team Titles


They showed the clip from the preshow of Miz talking to Naomi. Dull match. The crowd was digging Mizdow but a lot of this was restholds. The Usos dominated early until Miz hit Jey with a DDT. After that the match went to a really slow pace. Miz shoved Sandow in the way of a dive then hit one of the Uso’s with a belt to lose by DQ but keep the titles (7:17) *1/2.

Seth Rollins was backstage. He said he will stop at nothing until Cena brings back the Authority.

Erick Rowan vs. Big Show in a Stairs Match


Big Show won a overly long and excruciating match to watch. This had no business going over eleven minutes. Crowd was dead the entire time. Just an awful match with mistimed spots. The stair stipulation was a terrible idea and nothing cool happened with them. Show won with KO punch then put the stairs over him for the pin. Horrible stuff and a contender for the Worst Match of the Year Award.  (11:14) -*.

Also, click inside and hit refresh for up to the minute match results and analysis that will be on top of the page.

Goldust & Stardust vs. The Usos for the WWE Tag Team Championships

Goldust & Stardust won the titles after Cody rolled up Jey and held the tights after getting his knees up on a splash attempt. This match felt more like a house show match than a PPV match to be honest. They got a lot of time and most of it was back and forth with the exception being a heat sequence on Jimmy. The announcers obnoxiously tried to get over the terms “cosmic twins” and cosmic key” throughout the match. The crowd actually cheered Stardust when he tagged and its clear the heel turn of the Rhodes Brothers is not working. I don’t think the fans want to boo them (12:47) **1/4

Cesaro vs. Sheamus for the WWE U.S. Championship


Sheamus retains with a Brogue Kick. Match started off with a dead crowd until about halfway through when Cesaro destroyed Sheamus with an European Uppercut. After that, these two beat the tar out of each other and working some incredibly crisp and fast-paced sequences until the finish. Cesaro, in defeat, still looked great in this match with his moveset. He is so underutilized right now that it isnt even funny. (13:06) ***1/2.

Backstage, the Big Show gives Mark Henry a patriotic pep talk.

Country Band Florida Georgia line join the announcers booth.

Miz w/ Damien Sandow vs. Dolph Ziggler w/ R Truth for the WWE Intercontinental Championship


The focus of this was on the commentary with the announcers talking with Florida Georgia Line, who eventually beat up Sandow, and hyping up their appearance on this year’s “Tribute to the Troops.” It was actually hard to focus on the match with the excruciatingly bad commentary but the match itself was subpar and worse than usual between these two. The finish came when Ziggler super kicked Sandow off of the apron but Miz used a reverse rollup and grabbed a handful of tights to get the win and the belt. This is the second title tonight that has changed hands with a heel grabbing tights on a rollup (9:25) *1/2.

We are shown footage about Roman Reigns’ surgery including quotes from Reigns himself along with his doctor.

Seth Rollins is in the ring. He runs down Reigns and calls him out for not being a real man. He orders the ref to count to ten then raise his hand in victory. Rollins then issues an open challenge when a cab is shown pulling up to the arena backstage and the crowd pops when it turns out to be Dean Ambrose. We do not get a match but rather Ambrose beating the piss out of Rollins around the arena. The Authority and a mix of agents and security run out and eventually stop Ambrose when HHH tosses them a zip tie as they carry Ambrose to the back. Seems like they are going with Ambrose/Rollins and Hell in a Cell and that is a good choice and would mean more than a match without build on this show.

Mark Henry vs. Rusev w/ Lana


Lillian Garcia sang the National Anthem before the match and did a mighty fine job plus it pumped up the crowd…….until about 30 seconds into the match. Slow and lumbering match, which was expected to be honest. Rusev got the win with the Accolade after he failed to put away Rusev after hitting the World’s Strongest Slam. JBL kept pushing on commentary that Henry let down America and they might go with that angle for him because this feud seems over. At least it should be over after the heel wins cleanly (8:23) *1/2.

Randy Orton vs. Chris Jericho


Orton got the win with an RKO in midair. The finished was way too telegraphed. Jericho wrestled his best match in this run. They got the crowd into it as the match had no build but these two are capable vets so it should not be too surprising. No idea where they go with Orton after this. (14:50) ***1/4

AJ Lee vs. Nikki Bella vs. Paige for the WWE Diva’s Championship


AJ won the belt after making Paige tap to the Black Widow. The match itself was fine but there was little heat. I give credit to Nikki as she did a better than expected job as a heel in the match. Plus, she took a crazy back bump to the floor. Sadly, the AJ/Paige feud looks to continuing (8:22) **.

John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar w/ Paul Heyman for the WWE Championship


Lesnar retained the belt with a DQ finish. Rollins ran in and hit Cena with his MiTB briefcase after Cena hit Lesnar with a 4th AA. A lot more even than their SummerSlam match. Not a fan of the finish as this show has been hyped as a one-match show with this rematch heavily hyped and promoted. And as a main event, especially someone like Brock who works a limited schedule, a rematch isnt always in the works. I think they go with Cena vs. Rollins at the next PPV based off of Cena’s facial expressions at the end as he acted like this was his last chance against Brock. But they actually have a few ways to go at Hell in a Cell so that could be good. In hindsight, this finish could look a lot better if they book strongly going forward (14:50) ***
