Stunt Granny Audio #159

Everyone was walking away from HHH on Raw. Does that mean there won’t be any Smackdown? Eric and Kevin don’t answer that question but they do talk about what the walk away enabled HHH to claim. Does this mean he just likes the spot light or is there something more than meets the eye? They started from the beginning of Raw though. Do Drew McIntyre and John Morrison have something in common? Which one dropped further down the depth chart? The duo moves on to talk about the heels and their law suit. The biggest talking point is the quality of some very short promos. Is a David Otunga 110% promo worth a 50% Christian promo? Does Dolph Ziggler stand out at all? Is Vickie Guerrero still the Queen of Heat? And which legendary valet does Eric compare her to? The boys finish the talk while going over the main event match that spanned two commercial breaks. Was the talent used correctly? Who got screwed for TV time? And find out whether The Great White is a racial slur or just a tease to get you to click on the link below!

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

Which level of hell did the wrestlers get to last night?

You wouldn’t believe the pathetic pictures for “Fallout” (they’re all for Fall Out Boy), “Aftermath” (Bomb photos which I wasn’t quite looking for) and “Hell” (Nothing good). So I went “Dante’s Inferno” and that’s what you get. I visited his house when I was in Florence since that is where he grew up (I’ll check on that). He did invent modern Italian with that book since it was still a collection of local dialects. Welcome to factoid day here. Time for wrestling. Let’s roll.

We get started with Randy Orton taking on “What ever happened to?” to Drew McIntyre. Orton whoops on him for a bit then starts to sell. In the mean time, Eric sends me this gem in a text “He’s now being announced as the Apex Predator? No more Viper? At least that nickname didn’t sound like a smooth pervert on Dateline NBC.” I never thought of that name that way but I could see that used for a serial rapist. Orton hits a second RKO on Drew just for shits and giggles. I love a squash match to start Raw. It just dawned on me that they started with a match. Henry shows up afterwards. A brawl ensues so that someone can prove HHH is losing control even though this type of event is a staple in wrestling.

Good on WWE to hype Smackdown and more importantly Big Show. It’d be nice if Orton didn’t spend the year just feuding with Christian and Henry. I told the WWE to shit or get off the pot with Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler and John Morrison. I’m going to say they’re shitting on Morrison. Cole making the argument I just predicted. JR disagreeing with Cole now that King isn’t there. Henry wins in our second consecutive squash match. Oh no, as scary as Henry just was I’m thinking if he starts over using “Hall of Pain” may make him popular. The WWE lulls me to sleep talking about lawsuits brought to you by bores Johnny Wooden Gobbler and Jennifer Hudson’s husband.

Del Rio is still being shoved down our throats as Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, Vickie Guerrero, Christian and some Harvard grad.  Alberto is not doing well. Christian does better in 10 seconds of mic time. Cody shows off how to deliver a good promo in a weird cadence. Take note Del Rio. Dolph acquits himself well. Swagger shows why he isn’t going anywhere. The crowd boos Vickie more than anyone else. Otunga trips over his tongue 3 words into his promo. HHH shows up to save us from the terrible TV him and his wife subjected us to. Trips gives us a “Being men” speech. Easy fodder.

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

This picture came up when I searched for "I can't handle this" because my buddy said that as he left. He had watched almost all of Raw last week. Google is right though, I couldn't handle this. I'd be going off like a sprinkler before she even took a piece of clothing off. Just the act of her closing the bedroom door would do that to me.

I watched the opening segment with my buddy Sean so I’m not going to give the Cena/Punk promos much of a review. Cena’s seemed as joking then suddenly serious as they all do these days. Punk brought the boos with him. Biggest surprise so far, there’s actually a crowd that cheers in Anaheim.

Great match up with a nice suspect ending of the mystery arm. It’s a well executed angle. Punk needs the win more than Cena. Matthews and Cole could knock this out tonight. Digging them already.

They showed a review of the Edge & Del Rio segment from Raw 2 weeks ago. Del Rio comes out on Raw again. I’m starting to gag from them shoving him down my throat. Vickie & Dolph come out. Vickie says Dolph is the new champion and will be crowned on Smackdown. She then cackled about Edge attacking Teddy Long and how he’ll lose his job because of it. They end the segment way too quickly. Did they realize it was bombing?
