Stunt Granny Audio #256

Jeremy and Kevin get off to a roaring start by talking about how Dolph Ziggler is Kevin’s child. Does Kevin really look like he could have a child who graduated from Kent State? How dumb is the waitress that asked him this question? Is she dating anyone important to the story? They move into talking about the Godzilla trailer above. Jeremy adeptly tells Kevin what the difference is between Mothra and Rodan. What else can Jeremy tell the forgetful one? How great would Bryan Cranston be if he had a bad over dubbed Japanese voice? What do the guys think of movies with subtitles? Speaking of disasters, they finally pivot into talking about wrestling and more specifically TNA or Impact Wrestling. How did Eric Young get crowned TNA Champion when an actual pay per view was held two weeks later? How do they expect us to believe that crowning Eric Young was always in their plans? What other character in the title struggle reminds Kevin of another WWE character? If Eric Young isn’t worthy of a title reign, who is in TNA? Jeremy & Kevin finally get around to talking about the WWE, specifically about the John Cena and Bray Wyatt segment to open the show. What is working for that segment specifically? How creepy was it to have a child on Wyatt’s lap? Does anyone know who Uncle Paul is? Could the WWE have made it creepier? When should Renee Young have been done interviewing John Cena? Why does he wreck his own angle? Why can’t the announcers make an impact on the angle through words? Was Jim Ross right about Michael Cole all along? Who wins Cena and Wyatt’s cage match at TLC on Sunday? Find out that and more when you click on the link below!

Stunt Granny Lunch Conversation – Stanley Cup Playoffs and WWE Raw

Lana NXT

Jeremy: That was an interesting game with Pittsburgh Penguins and the Columbus Bluejackets last night.

Kevin:  I was so annoyed by the start. The Pens took control after the TO though. It took them a while to crack Bob still.
Jeremy:  Shows the inexperience. Shouldn’t blow a two goal lead in 3rd.
Kevin:  They’ve done that twice so far this series and I do think it’s partially inexperience. The other part, which is what is bothering me more, is the Pens are more talented. Granted, outworking them is helping the CBJ stay in it.
Jeremy:  I started flipping between Raw and hockey so didn’t see enough to see that.
Kevin:  So Wednesday should be interesting.
Jeremy:  Yeah for sure. Thought of that last night. Pivotal game. No chance Cbus can go down 3-1
Kevin:  Which is what I’m hoping for. As soon as I knew I only had game 4, I was hoping the Pens weren’t on the verge of a sweep because they have only swept 1 team under Dan Bylsma.
Jeremy:  no one can sweep so far which is good
Kevin:  Did Tampa finally win? Walked the dogs during intermissions and started watching Raw after the game.
Jeremy:  Oh forgot about them. I was out by 10:30 or so. Have to watch end still but no shock Cena won even if by DQ.
Kevin:  I’ll have it in a next day note but it was funny of the WWE to skew a vote against the baby face to continue the narrative.
Jeremy:  Yeah I know. Like the outcome was in anyway a surprise.
Kevin:  It’s so weird too since it’s basically the same mistake he made against Nexus that he claims to regret. Learn from past mistakes, John.  Just read that Jim Ross thinks the fans voted for that situation. Either he’s a rube or he’s still covering for the WWE. Either way, it’s a bad look for credibility.
Jeremy:  Nah I have no doubt the fans really voted that. Why would they want anything but the most in that?
Kevin:  Then why would the 2nd most votes be just for Harper?
Jeremy:  Harper is awesome. I am convinced the app stuff is for the hardcore stuff which is why they keep explaining hwo to do it. They think the average fan is stupid and reading the comments on pics and that, ugh, they are.
Kevin:  I just need to read the comments from Twitter they post on the screen. The Tweets couldn’t try to be less mundane.
Jeremy:  Oh yeah those are great. Totally useless.
Kevin:  So I’m sure the comments are just as priceless. Luke Harper rulez! Thanks @TheBeztWWEFan
Jeremy:  I am not doing better than that one. You nailed every aspect, down to the Z in the name.
Kevin:  I’m not even sure if I could Tweet something like that. Maybe I could just to see @Stunntgranny scroll across the screen.

Jeremy:  I considered it but just no
Kevin:  The level of shame attached isn’t worth it.
Jeremy:  Exactly.
Kevin:  Ha. Anything else jump out at you during the show?
Jeremy:  They got Daniel Bryan off tv fast to deal with his dad dying. thought that was a nice touch. Crazy month for that guy. Total roller coaster.
Kevin:  Included that in the corrections I just posted. That is the definition of up & down.
Jeremy:  yeah, when he came out I expected him to say something about it, hence the Brie Bella cameo.
Kevin:  I didn’t know that was news before the show. Never much check the sites after noon.
Jeremy:  I saw it on twitter or something. Not a usual destination but came across it somehow.
Kevin:  I was avoiding that being behind in the game some
Jeremy:  OK, so Lana’s real name is CJ Perry on the SSV board have near nude pics of her already. Damn fine work.
Kevin:  I decided to put Paige pics in the column instead of Lana.
Jeremy:  Nice. She is attractive.
Kevin:  I’ll have to take a look at the Lana pics though. Never been much for blondes.
Jeremy:  Ha. Booooo.
Kevin:  I wouldn’t kick Lana out of bed for eating crackers after watching that short video.
Jeremy:  Nope
Kevin:  Probably a little short on a column still. Dusty is doing the show tonight. So anything else strike you from Raw that we can discuss?
Standard_Poodle

Jeremy: Ran home and watched that main event. Weak shit. The Super Cena stuff doesn’t work anymore. Everyone else has some realistic tendencies but hsi act is so bad in comparison. He did , maybe, 7 moves all match and won. The instant DQ at the end was idiotic. Really bad stuff. It should have just been a beatdown and no match.
Kevin:  Whoever booked the match did pace things well in that Bray Wyatt kept letting Cena off the hook by playing to the crowd which allowed him to get those 7 moves in.
Jeremy:  yes that was OK but it was a beat down for 15? min. it is just the character doesn’t meld with the new or current guys
there are too many established “legit” guys now. It isn’t like he is facing Alberto Del Rio. If it was Erik Rowan takign a AA and then a nearfall then ok, but not Wyatt who you are tryign to build up. You have to sell a cage macth for christ sake. If he can beat him with the interference what is the damn point?
Kevin:  Why I skipped over that aspect of it is a mystery to even me. Rowan is getting in less and less ring time as their gimmick keeps getting used. Not a good sign for him. You are right that he should be the one nearly losing. Not the guy who already lost to Cena at Wrestlemania.
Jeremy:  Right,I know that Cena is ” the standard” now but there is money in the idea that the younger guy is nto ionly getting in to his head but wearing him down physically. Having him get beat for 18 minutes only to make a comeback like nothing happened is not a smart way to further a story.I am not even hating on Cena. This would be a good week to see whot he producer of the segment was. They need to get across the importance of looking weak. Remember Nexus just crushing Cena a few years back. It was startling because it never happened. Last night was a moment to do the same. Cena cannot win against the Wyatt Family. They are too strong or they have worn him down so far between the onset of the feud and now. It makes Cenas eventual triumph that much bigger. Fuck, this is easy.
Kevin:  But you don’t know the back stage politics, man! HHH would never take a spear from Roman Reigns to help build up Evolutions feud with the Shield. So why would John Cena receive a beat down?
Jeremy:  Well Cena did take a beat down after the fact as well but it rings hollow. Yes I am ignoring your very accurate point about Triple H. It was just a very poorly conceived segment. It would also help if the Attitude Adjustment wasn’t a sorry looking finisher. Outside of Ryback who has a weaker looking final move?
Kevin:  So glad Bad News Barrett isn’t using Wasteland any more. But trying to think of bad finishers and am coming up empty. Looked at the roster after thinking on it and still nothing.
Jeremy:  I was aiming more at bigger guys with weak finishers. Anything that consists of a flat back bump isn’t too harsh looking. It also depends on the delivery. If Cena drove the body to the mat or at least kept his hand on the stomach to make it look like he was driving them then cool. He simply flips the guy on to the back. No different than a hiptoss or a back drop.

Kevin:  It reminds me of the Walls of Jericho in a way. It looked good at the start but looked weaker when they started doing it a lot. Jericho turns it into a Boston Crab. Cena has gone from a DVD to as you noted, tossing someone on their back.
Jeremy:  Even the STF has gotten a bit better ever since Austin tod him on his podcast to tighten it up. ll of this factors in making this angle with The Wyatts work. They are believable in their actions and moves and he has the responsibility to do the same. It falls on the producers to get it over as well.
Kevin:  Ha. Didn’t listen to that one but it’s good that Austin called him out. Austin was the best at doing the little things to keep it look realistic. I remember him just punching people as he drug them back to the ring. One of the reasons I like Austin over other people.
Jeremy:  It is alwasy the little things that go towards making things realistic. Even if the announcers, which they didn’t, would have brought up the fact that all John had to do was get dirty to fight back it would have helped last night. Fight fire with fire.Some cliche like that.Imagine after all that with Kane and Daniel bryan he gets up and gives the running knee to kane.
Kevin:  That would have been ridiculous. DB and Cena have much different characters. Cena’s needs to be more like DB. Allow a beat down to happen. As much as we’ve talked up Cena for losing key important matches, he doesn’t allow beat downs like he should.
Jeremy:  Well he allows the beat down but never the culmination of the beat down. He has no issue showing one cheek but he never goes full on ass.

Nerd Playing WOWJeremy & Kevin have recovered their voices from yelling at Wrestlemania and Raw last week in New Orleans. They talk about their experience in the Crescent City and somehow don’t cover all of the Sippy Time Beer that was consumed. They did consume a lot of drinks on Saturday night though. Who got them a grain alcohol shot? What did he promise them? How good was scene at the Chicken Shack after a night of drinking? What did their hotel neighbor add at the end of the night? Where does New Orleans rank against Detroit, Orlando and Atlanta? What made it different? Is it the reason we saw so many Superstars? Raw had a boisterous crowd but what made it different from this week’s Raw? Was the crowd as different as the stories being told? Is it good for Evolution to be back together? Will they have good matches with the Shield? When should HHH wrestle? What did Jeremy think of the Ultimate Warrior tribute? Why did Kevin plead ignorant on the situation? They end on a down note by talking about Eric Young winning the TNA Heavyweight Championship. How correct was Dusty when he wrote this article? Does ROH have more viable candidates to come to the WWE than TNA right now? Find out the answer to these questions and more when you click on the link below!

Jeremy’s Blog: First Person Perspective of The Streak Ending

timthumb.php

Witnessing the end of the Streak was the literally, yes I mean literally, a top five moment in my life. It wasn’t that I was against the Streak or disliked the Undertaker. Quite the contrary actually; the Streak was one of WWE’s greatest creations whether it was intentional or not. It was on the border of becoming more important than the actual WrestleMania event. If it had to end it needed to end in spectacular fashion and it did.

Not one person in the Superdome expected the streak to end. As The Undertaker made his entrance my girl said ‘If Undertaker wins I am going to be really annoyed.” Kevin and I responded with the same sentence; “Be prepared to be annoyed.” We couldn’t have been more wrong but yet being wrong was never so satisfying.

At first the end of the match seemed botched. From our vantage point it appeared as if the referee accidently continued his count and slapped the mat for a three. It appeared as if he was waving his arms back and forth calling off his count. I was so stunned with the three count I don’t recall hearing the bell ring immediately after the count.

After watching the match on YouTube, since the WWE app doesn’t work on the Samsung Galaxy Tablet, it was clear the referee counted three and called for the bell. His arm motion was to make sure the match was called as finished and to ensure Brock Lesnar did no further damage to The Undertaker. There is really no explanation on how the scene could be viewed so radically different other than denial.

WWE perfectly milked the situation. There was no music playing to signify the victor let alone that the match had ended. There was no over the top celebration by Brock Lesnar. He perfectly sold the length and the physical nature of the match. Paul Heyman entered the ring but didn’t jump up and down in celebration. From our seats and our view of the ring it simply looked like he was in the ring to explain to Brock that the match finish was botched and they were stalling

There were no replays of the pin fall in the Superdome. The crowd was left waiting for some sort of result and the time passed slowly. Even though on television it was a mere 30 seconds in person those 30 seconds felt like minutes. Finally the wait came to a screeching halt when the video screens displayed the historic 21-1.

It had to be the most significant if shortest groan in history. There was no loud gasp. There was no screaming. There was no fainting, well, at least not around us. There was just silence. Of course there were a few of us cheering and clapping but that wasn’t done to be the cool kids in the crowd. I cheered and clapped with a strong vigor because I had no idea what do to with myself.

We had taken for granted the fact that in a field where everything is predetermined that the crowd really doesn’t know the outcomes. The finishes of WrestleMania 30 seemed obvious. The smart fan had it all figured out and gave this match no chance. This includes this very sites contributors. There was no way The Undertaker’s streak was coming to an end plain and simple.

The crowd eventually tried to chant “bullshit” but it never caught on. The energy in the building had been buried in an avalanche of shock. All of the preconceived notions of knowing it all were gone. Not one person considered the fact that Brock would win and now that he had there was nothing but a mass mental sort circuit to process what had just happened.

It was such an incredible sight to behold. It was a powerful moment. It was so shocking it made us all feel bad for the divas match that was up next.

There will be arguments and debate for a long time about whether or not The Undertaker should have lost. The fact though is that it provided one of the most memorable and entertaining moments for it audience. It has now made the fans guess at all turns now. If anything, the end of the streak gave us all that much. -Jeremy

Wrestlemania XXX Preview: Randy Orton vs. Batista vs. Daniel Bryan

batista-orton-bryan

Jeremy & Kevin are starting this show off astonishingly by ignoring the possibility of HHH being in this match. Their medium is working on the internet so if it breaks when HHH wins the first match, at least people won’t get to hear this podcast as they make asses out of themselves. They first grapple with separating the build up for Batista’s return, his subsequent turn for the better into a heel then his gripe with Randy Orton. How has Orton looked with his on and off relationship with the Authority? Is he the longest reigning transitional champion ever as Shahid suggested several weeks ago? When did this feud get clarity and finally start moving towards a match worthy of the slot of main event at Wrestlemania? Will Daniel Bryan have more left in his tank than a notoriously poorly conditioned Batista? How good has the chemistry been between Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton in the past? Will it translate when Batista is in the ring? If you thought our predictions for the last match were earth shattering, wait until we blow up the universe with the final predictions!

Wrestlemania XXX Preview: The Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal

Andre The Giant Battle RoyalJeremy & Kevin start the second half of their Wrestlemania previews with a look at a match announced by Hulk Hogan, the Andre The Giant Battle Royal. He didn’t announce what the prize was for winning. The WWE hasn’t announced anything in the time since then. So does it matter if Big Show wins? Or will he get to continue his losing ways? Does it matter that Dolph Ziggler has been on a winning streak? How about Big E Langston who isn’t defending the Intercontinental Title? Could a returning Rey Mysterio beat the odds again? Will Kofi Kingston get to be a spot monkey? Will Sheamus Brogue Kick everyone out of the ring? Will one of the mystery guests win the Battle Royal? Is anyone speculating on who will be in the vacant spots? Jeremy & Kevin’s big question of this show though is, why are some of these other jokers getting a Wrestlemania bonus if they can’t crack one of the main television shows? Shouldn’t the over talent want an even larger slice of the pie? Both of yours hosts would so click on the link below for something we won’t earn a dime off.

WrestleMania XXX Preview: Bray Wyatt vs. John Cena

20140221_MatchPreview_CenaBray_LIGHT_HPJeremy & Kevin are here to talk about well, you see the title and picture so they’re here to talk about John Cena taking on Bray Wyatt. As usual the main question of these shows is how has the build up been for this match? Was Daniel Bryan supposed to stay in the Wyatt Family until Wresltemania? Did CM Punk leaving throw that story line off? Did that win help Bray Wyatt earn much needed in ring credibility? Has he earned more of it since then? How awkward did it look when he gave Sister Abigail’s Kiss to the Big Show? They wonder whether Luke Harper or Erick Rowan will be a factor which is when Jeremy goes off on people for just now noticing Harper’s in ring prowess. Does Harper actually have more in ring credibility since the head of the family spent quite a bit of time in a rocking chair instead of wrestling? Wyatt has gotten some wins under his belt of late but is it enough to take on someone with the pedigree of John Cena? Speaking of Cena, how scared should he be that someone put a sheep’s mask on him? Get a good look under our own sheep’s mask when you click on the link below!
