SPOONS IN BUNNIES!
The best ever.Source: ancientcountry
You guys. I loved this Raw.
Acting like the head of the cheerleading squad and the captain of the football team is what Stephanie McMahon and Triple H were always meant to do. I approve of this 100%. I’ll also go on and admit I’ve always thought that Stephanie is a little bit better on the mic than Triple H is. At least when it comes to being a jerk.
I love how evil they are. I wish they both had cats they carried around and stroked as they fired people. I wish they pulled on ropes hanging from the ceiling and then anvils dropped down and smashed peoples heads.
Now please enjoy, Dean Ambrose, a regular smoke show.
I don’t know what it is about guys like CM Punk and Ambrose, but it’s like they all went to Sexy Badass College together, majored in Han Solo, and minored in Ron Pearlman. It’s riiiight up my alley.
Something I’ve been loving about WWE lately is that I get to see wrestlers like Daniel Bryan, and the Shield, wrestle every week. It used to feel like Punk was the only consistent, weekly highlight. But now, wrestling is catering a lot more to the nerds. Personalities are more interesting, so no matter how dumb a storyline is getting, I tune in because there’s a lot of people I want to see on TV, wrestling real good.
What dreams are made of.
I loved this match.
Note: CM Punk should teach a seminar in how to wear hoodies.
Lesson 1: Just a Taste
OH MY GOD SHAWN MICHAELS. THAT ENTRANCE LINE. THAT HUG. Leaning in a doorway, goofy smile. And I know that he’s promoting his outdoors show so he’s always dressed like he just hung a bear trap, but cAMAAAAN. I love how a hug from Triple H isn’t enough, he still asks “not happy to see me?” because he doesn’t get enough attention. He’s acting like a little kid who’s parents are getting ready for another child.
And then they follow up cartoon Shawn Michaels with Santino, Hornswaggle, and the Great Khali dressed up like Elvis??Wrestling 3MB???
You know, recently I said I wanted WWE to just take the risk and just be more like Anime. And they’re listening. When it comes to wrestling, I really need a healthy dose of Stupid. I just wish people could learn to shoot energy out of their hands.
Speaking of anime characterizations…
Who would have thought I would ever look forward to Randy Orton being on my TV. He’s coming out like the ultimate destroyer. It’s the only way the whole Viper Possession thing has worked for me. I love how sincerely Orton loves playing characters like this. It reminds me that no matter how famous a wrestler can get, or bored they were, they’re still wrestling fans inside. Everyone seems to be performing with higher stakes, it makes the Evil Stephanie and Triple H thing that much more real.
Something I realllllyyy didn’t like at this raw was the stupid video game title cards when they were promoting Hell In a Cell. What is this garbage?
This looks like nightmare.
And then, again, I….LIKE the Bella Twins?….I mean I’ll always give it up to people who seem to work really hard because they genuinely want to improve. I imagine Brie practices dropkicks and Daniel Bryan from the side vacantly smiles until she begs him to be honest with her. Someone can suck for a million years, but if I see them actually try and be better, and improve every week, I’m impressed.
I dunno how I feel about Tamina. I find her kind of stiff and boring. She looks amazing. Kind of like she’s AJ’s mean, worried single mom. But her actual in-ring work just kind of leaves me cold. But I will give props to her carrying AJ out like a sack of potatoes.
Remember when Paul Heyman is the Philip Seymour Hoffman of the WWE? Look at this…
…he fucking broke a sweat cutting this promo.
IT IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!
I wont go on and on about how bad the commentary is, because it’s terrible every week. They’re either talking too much about insignificant things, like AJ Lee’s sex life, or the lusciousness of the Divas, or jokes about Daniel Bryan’s beard, OR they don’t seem to find ANYTHING to talk about when a great match is happening. Call it, you idiots! Fuck it, just watch some videos and copy JR. Really, anything other than this.
But not even bad commentary good ruin this RAW for me. Antonio Cesaro swung around Brodus , Punk and Big E are teaming up, Dean Ambrose wrestled for 15 minutes, and basically every match was good. And the USOS, you guys, I’ve loved those boys for ages. And I love how much the crowd gets into them. What a delightful show. I feel like someone personally asked me what I wanted. Even when AJ Lee lost to a BELLA TWIN, I was happy, BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE HUSTLING. But what’s terrifying about Raw is that when it’s good, is it’s kind of like a cool, but absent dad. He shows up every once and awhile and he buys you an XBOX, but then the next day he’s bailed again, and he drank all the milk.
