Kevin’s Blog: Almost Live, Definitely Half Assed Review of #WWE #Raw

Autobahn

Jeremy mentioned to me that I didn’t need to do this column any more. I hadn’t realized I had brought the idea up myself not all that long ago when we were talking about adding content. When he reminded me today about it, I felt offended. I don’t know why it did. I only started this column because of our trip to Wrestlemania XXVII. I still want to do it because it’s still the biggest wrestling show. But I may not go full on blog style. We’ll see. Let’s roll.

John Cena makes a deal with CM Punk for his Wrestlemania spot. CM Punk takes the deal on his terms. Um, Cena doesn’t need to take the counter offer. Nice of them to give us a week of build up.

Sheamus tries to talk sense in Ryback. Chris Jericho becomes the voice of reason and puts over the Shield. And the WWE. More chest slapping and creepy staring. Sin Cara gets to lose very quickly to Mark Henry. For some reason, the Great Khali comes out to save Sin Cara from the post match beat down. Henry blows him off. I love the mocking.

We get another Miz vs Antonio Cesaro match. I haven’t watched a single Fandango vignette. We’ve got the dancing Khali, Tensai and Brodus Clay. Do we really need another dancer in the WWE? My vote is absolutely no. The Miz is being tough guy holding out from the injury. Be smart like Punk, Miz and take a week off. Dear lord, Mitchell Cool thinks Cesaro is speaking German. Jerry Lawler calls him on it but doesn’t go at him hard. The Miz wins by figure four. Weak. Zeb Colter gets to do a home video with Jack Swagger. The Mexicans are invading. Jack Swagger agrees. Weak trolling by the WWE.

Daniel Bryan is wrestling Jack Swagger. Bryan is a high class jobber when he’s in a singles match. Kane doesn’t like snakes. Randy Orton likes them. Decent knocks on Kane’s character. Vickie Guerrero tries to aggravate Paul Heyman. We get no conclusion to that story. It’s not a cliff hanger guys.

Dolph Ziggler takes on Alberto Del Rio so that he can be a high class jobber. A commercial again? Colter is pointing shit out during a reverse chin lock. Do you think it was “Them Mexicans even take a siesta during their own matches?” Ziggler kicked out of the low super kick. Cool tries to hype the Paul Heyman news. Ziggler grabs the rope after a back stabber. Del Rio wins by cross arm breaker. Big E Langston assaulted Del Rio and shouted “It’s over for you.” Ricardo Rodriguez runs off with the briefcase. Del Rio recovers. Zeb can’t xenophobia up Ziggler so no drama in that.

Wade Barrett was in a movie. Terrance Howard and Colin Ferrall are in it. Hot diggity that was a long trailer. Sheamus runs him down because losing to Bo Dallas wasn’t quite enough. Tensai, Brodus Clay & Naomi are taking on Rosa Mendes, Epico & Primo. Double splash win. The WWE sucks. Wrestlemania next year is in New Orleans. We might have a trip on our hands.

Stunt Granny Conversation: Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 10: Home Sweet Home

Daryl-the-Walking-Dead-episode-10

Welcome back everyone it is another week and another episode of Walking Dead to go over. Just as a courtesy there are spoilers ahead so make sure and watch the episode first. If you don’t well keep your bitching to yourself.

Jeremy: SO we are back again and let’s talk about last night’s episode, Home Sweet Home. What ya think?

Kevin: It is official; Lori ate a lot of food as soon as she got off set.

Jeremy: See I notice there is a difference but not as much as you have, I need to go back and watch the second season again.  Which, by the way, if you haven’t seen they are replaying the series in black and white in Thursdays. Adds a very cool dynamic to the show.

Kevin: I was interested when they did that a while ago for the first episode but didn’t watch. I may have to this time around.

Jeremy: Caught the first two last week and it definitely changes the atmosphere.  But enough promotion, especially free promotion, not even sure where to start with this episode since a lot happens.

56 Days of WrestleMania – WrestleMania IV’s Best Matches

Skipped the weekend so we’re in fast forward mode here. But for fast forward mode, here’s a marathon of a show that Dusty and Eric actually watch probably twice a year. Call it self-torture, I don’t know. Maybe just an appreciation for the brilliance of Bob Uecker. Anyway, pick your faves out of all of these 3-minute matches!

56 Days of WrestleMania – WrestleMania III’s Best Matches: Results

The card for WrestleMania III featured a surprising number of non-clods considering it was pro wrestling in the mid-1980s, leading to several matches far more watchable than the previous two WrestleManias. The gimme here was Ricky Steamboat vs. Randy Savage for the Intercontinental Title, a match that probably still ranks top five in the opinions of most experts (and nerds). The second-place winner in this very scientific poll doubles as possibly the most significant match in pro wrestling history, Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant. While not a textbook classic, it is a match of mythical proportions, including the ability to draw 93,000 people to one venue. Hard to argue with money.
