Kevin’s Blog: Definitely Live & Half Assed Review of @WWE #Raw

I hope you enjoyed a Sippy Time Beer on St. Patrick's Day.

I enjoyed some Irish beverages. Mostly one actually. I prefer to go all in on Guinness during St. Pat’s. Harp is a preferred beer too but it wasn’t an option at the bar I hit. I did enjoy an Irish Car Bomb. It was tasty. Since I’m on time and Raw is starting, let’s roll.

I’m glad CM Punk is the first one out. He needs to respond to Chris Jericho. Mitchell Cool & Jerry Lawler mention Twitter already. If you feel like playing “Where’s Waldo?” with yours truly from Smackdown last week, follow us @Stuntgranny. I just tweeted them before the start of Raw. I hadn’t watched Smackdown until last night. Jericho isn’t there so that means a sneak attack, right? Punk with the exact reaction he should have, shrug it off. Granted, his words are much better than what I can type. Chris Jericho pops on via satellite. Jericho goes fake apology. He’s soorry. Jericho goes after Punk’s sister. Punk has a destiny to drink. Jericho ended strong but his line of thinking shouldn’t affect Punk but his facial expressions are saying that they are.

Big Show is set to take on Kane when Cody Rhodes comes down to hop into the announce booth. Are they bringing more people into the booth or is that just me? Extra hype for Wrestlemania? We get a Big Show blooper reel. We are denied his mic skills so he can shadow box with gloves on. Kane with a top rope choke slam with a distraction from Cody. Cool just called it a Disaster kick. I guess they dropped “Beautiful”. Cody cuffs Big Show to the ropes. Rhodes attacks him. Big Show selling more than the beating he took. Rhodes will throw more punches at Wrestlemania.

It appears as if we’re getting a match between the captains, David Otunga with Johnny Wooden GM vs. Santino Marella. We start with a pose off. I’m loving the painted on abs for Santino. Otunga gets the win after a phone stomping. Are we going to get a match longer than a ring entrance tonight?

The Rock uses another hack location to get a crowd pop. People won’t call him on it. The Rock has some awesome short shorts on. The Rock only needs to beat John Cena to complete his ass kicking of legends. He uses another hack location to get another pop. Ah, he’s going to shove it ups Cena’s ass. I’m just not getting into the Rock. The crowd didn’t look much different than I felt. Some cheered, most looked happy that Rock was on WWE TV but knowing he’s gone after Wrestlemania.

TNA coming to the big screen again?

Dixie Carter just won’t learn. After carrying one PPV, Bound For Glory, in movie theatres they are at it again with this year’s edition of Lockdown. For those of you, like myself, who had no idea Bound For Glory was in movie theatres, this is your opportunity to see TNA in the big screen just as god intended.

Yes you can go watch Christopher Daniels, Robbie E, Kidd Kash, Abyss, Crimson (the bad one), Eric Young and a cast of hundreds all from the comfort of a movie theatre seat. Screenvision has partnered with TNA and if you aren’t familiar with them it is due to the fact they are not Fathom Events to bring the event to movie theatres nationwide. So a second rate wrestling company hooked up with the number two movie event producers to bring us this goodness.

What a colossal waste of cash. UFC tried the 3D movie theatre experience to middling attention. If UFC cannot pull it off what makes anyone, anyone involved in TNA or Impact Wrestling think this is a logical idea to get the name brand out there? Can someone, anyone remove control of this company from this woman? If not someone needs to smack the bad ideas out of her loose-leaf notebook and mutter “Leave the decisions to the men toots” and carry on losing money without her input. See what I did there?

Really though why bother? TNA ratings have shown no real movement for years. There have been no sustainable gains in viewership nor an increase in PPV buys. So why bother? God damn why bother? This is a waste of time, money and talent. I guess that encompasses TNA perfectly actually. – Jeremy

John Cena in car accident

According to WWE.com John Cena was in a car accident as he made the local news rounds in Philadelphia. We good? Need more details? Seriously what the fuck am I supposed to say? He got rear-ended and everyone is fine. This is possibly the least interesting story that has ever graced this site. Keep calm and carry on. Or rise up in a panic. I don’t really care.
In case you are interested here is the Facebook page J Spinelli & Sons. This is the company that caused the accident. Enjoy. -Jeremy
