Brock Lesnar lost a lot of muscle since 2002. Must be because he got off the juice. His ring gear also just looks really awkward. Just had to get that out of the way.
Overall rating 8: Because despite being able to see blood it was literally about 20 minutes of brock lesnar just wailing on Cena. 5 minutes of brock standing on the ring steps he put in the center of the ring. And 5 minutes for cenas 2 magical comeback moves an speech afterward. I’m serious guys. Thats all it was.
It was cool seeing some whoopass though and I’m glad we’re getting a break from Cena. I don’t hate him, its just we need a break from all these comeback storylines. When someone returns (with the exception of jericho) they just jump on cenas ass (kane, rock, brock).I just want to see other stars shine for a bit while he films the marine 3.
In short Layla comes back just to beat Nikki bella for the divas championship. Nikkis ringwork was a bit sloppy but I don’t really mind because apparently tomorrow night is their last appearance for wwe. Its obvious now that they only gave Nikki a 6 day title reign so when she leaves they can say she was a former champion (much like kane and stonecold first blood match leading to kanes 24 hour title reign back in the 90’s). Kind of disappointing but maybe we can see more competition in the divas division. Maybe Natalya will get a title reign soon?
kind of sad they didn’t pit the bellas against eachother but whatever. bye bella twins. Its been a decent run i guess. Actually started to like you two a bit.
This was by far the best match on the card. I’ll be sad to see this feud go but I will be remembering this match for years. I only have one bad thing to say about this: There SHOULD have been blood to end this feud.
Overall rating: 10. Completely blew their wrestlemania match out of the water and when people look back on the feud they’ll remember this fight. I’ll remember this fight. It was more then just rolling around in pins and submissions. It literally told the story of these Jerichos hunger for the championship and punks frustrations. This will be a hard match to beat. And I can see Punk getting into a feud with Lesnar now, but I’ll get into that later.
There is either a 12 year old or a redneck in the ring, but since its a PPV the WWE got both of them and put them in a handicap match against Goldb…I mean Ryback.
Things that happened:
Rating: I don’t know man I blinked during the match just like I do every match and the jobbers were just laying dead in the ring so a 4 I guess.
ps. Sorry but Ryback is or was on some juice. Theres no going around that. I have the feeling that in times of the wwe shoving the wellness policy down every ones throats to look legit yet refusing to shed light on what they’re testing for I feel the need to pry at the obvious for those you arn’t keeping mark. The sports world doesn’t care if the guys smoke weed, pop pills, or cocaine. Lets face it, the only thing insecure male sports fans are concerned about is “wow that guys fake because heuses steroids”. WWE is just using this drug policy to appeal to them and make it seem more legit when in fact it doesn’t even matter if a wrestler has quit using steroids the effect it has on their growth and maintenance last years. Keep in mind wwe, an athelete doing a cycle every few months or year (once a year) is not a reason I think people should be punished for but ABUSE (scott steiner) is the main issue with sports and steroids. Not saying I don’t think them using drugs like cocaine or pot is wrong I just feel if they want to legitimize the wellness policy it needs to be more open so people know whats going on.
I’m going to be completely honest when I say I slacked out on this one a bit because I left to go to 711 and get a slurpee after waiting 18 seconds into the match to be sure it wouldn’t be over when I got back. Sorry but I’ve been craving slurpees like a motherfucker and couldn’t resist.
Overall rating: 6.5. Not because I missed a fall but because I was shocked that daniel bryan,a man known to utilizing anything he can to get an advantage did not use sheamuses probation against him. That just seems so out of character for him to do. I didn’t get many mini heart attacks from this fight then I wish I did,but hopefully somebody else will come into the title picture (maybe lord tensai??) to make all of this more interesting. I do think Bryan should continue to fight for the title, but maybe adding more competition for the title will help.
This was me pretty much all match:
Overall rating: 8 For wwe havng a title changing hands unexpectedly. Unfortunately I have a feeling Codys going to continue to “poke the bear” instead of moving on from this drawn out boring storyline. And really, I don’t want to see rhodes vs show again anytime soon. The fact we have 4 matches that were on the wrestlemania card just 3 weeks ago just makes it feel like a wrestlemania rehash. Lets just move on already.
Heres a dusty gif for good measure and because I never have an opportunity to use it because well, Just look at it:
Funny note is I had no idea this match was scheduled and all day I was contemplating on not watching the PPV because I can’t imagine one without dolph performing. He brings the show to life. Not that this match wasn’t in vain but I still enjoyed it. Yes Ziggler has the power of having me decide whether I should watch it or not based soley on him being on the card. There are not many wrestlers that can make me do that.
Overall rating 7. I’m rating generously because ziggler still made the match look good and wwes lucky he doesn’t go all hbk vs hogan at summerslam on their asses and just make clay look like a cheeseball. I just want them to slow down the funkasaurus and set ziggler up to be the biggest heel to main event the next few years. He deserves it and if they don’t start doing that we’re going to be waiting for another face like brodus clay to work on his ring ability for a few years trapped in the midcard.
Reaction to zigglers loss:
But I’ll end this off with the bootypopping because his matches always make us happy.
Luckily we only had one depressing teddy long segment to put up with tonight. Smackdown was just shit on teddy over kill. I just want trips to come back tomorrow night and bless teddy with the mighty mcmahon power and breathe life back into his pimp hand.
Only thing that made me laugh was cody rhodes telling Teddy him that the tables match stipulation was his fault. He just said it like a whiney 8th grader. Oh Teddy, heres to hoping for you so more of this can happen:
Overall rating, 7. Match was just to slow and even though I love kane I didn’t really give a fuck about it. Randy orton was advertised for fighting at Over the limit (and possibly main eventing). If his opponent is once again Kane.. well I have an appropriate randy orton gif that will explain my feelings about that.
I had dificulties with ordering the ppv (I have optimum and it told me it couldn’t process). So then I checked out a stream of it til matt managed to get it working in the other room. While watching the stream I couldn’t use tumblr without the video turning into a power point presentation so I just wrote down my thoughts. I continued to write after matt fixed it on the other cable box and just figured I’ll make a post for each match. So COMMENCE THE RELIVEBLOGGING.
ps. My boyfriend thinks its weird but in a cool way that I live blog my thoughts got 2 out of 6 matches I made predictions for right. Overall it was a good ppv had its flaws here and there but I found myself many times on the edge of my seat after the slow start.
pss. will not be able to liveblog raw tomorrow night because I’m working. Sorry guys but I have priorities I have real life to attend too. I will post my thoughts though now that My brain isn’t as boggled as it was 2 weeks ago.
