A few quick thoughts on John Morrison…

November 30, 2011

John Morrison’s WWE career is now over. From Tough Enough to tag team gold with MNM to teaming with Miz to winning singles gold like the ECW Title and the I-C Title, then to jobber limbo. What went wrong?

Many can speculate that it was his relationship with Melina that ruined his WWE career, who knows. At this point we all suspect that he is TNA bound.

Unfortunately going that route has done nothing for others who’ve come before him. Guys like RVD, Kennedy and Foley have all gone to Orlando hoping for greener pastures only to end up in TNA limbo.

I could only hope that Morrison is the exception but because he is truly talented and deserves a break but my gut tells me its not going to go well.

Morrison would be better off going the route of MVP, Hass and Benjamin. Either going to Japan or going to Ring of Honor.

All we can do now is wait to see what happens.

Good luck where ever you end up next.

05-09-11 WWE RAW REVIEW

May 9, 2011

Right off the bat Ricardo Rodriguez is introducing Alberto Del Rio who drives out in a Rolls Royce. ADR comes to the ring and reminds us what his name is. He says his destiny was stolen by that coward Edge and says we wasted a lot of time last week with the Rock’s celebration. He says there is no one better than him and its he who should face Cena. This brings out Rey Mysterio and says his destiny is to be Ricardo Rodriguez’ announcer and then challenges ADR tonight, winner getting Cena. Before ADR can finish his though The Miz and Smackdown’s Alex Riley come out, Miz talks shit about Smackdown and says this is still his show and blames Riley for the shit that happened last week. ADR says Miz had his moment and he didn’t get the job done and now he goes to the back of the line. Miz doesn’t like this shit and says he DID get the job done last week and that the ref was incompetent and tells Rey and ADR to fight in a Taco Bell parking lot. Ha. R-Truth then comes out with no music, he says he hates hospital food and that Morrison is eating a whole lot of that right now because what he did to him. He then says he doesn’t care if the guys in the ring all share the same bed pan and cuts then all down individually. He tells us when an angry black man is talking, we need to shut up…. We get an email… the GM says he only sees three who deserve this match so we’re getting a triple threat, Miz vs. Del Rio vs…. then we get another email…. The third person is… Rey Mysterio. Truth doesn’t take this shit too well and goes off and gets in the face of Rey. Mysterio says Truth should be in the match and that’s “what’s up”. Ha. The crowd gives Truth the “hey hey hey goodbye” chant while he walks off. Miz gets back on the mic and says ADR and Rey are day laborers on RAW. Haha Before Miz can say he will be the next WWE Champion, Rodriguez says Alberto Del Rio’s name. This causes shit to break down with Riley, Rodriguez, Miz and ADR beating on each other. Rey waits his turn and dives onto ADR on the outside before celebrating in the ring.

Well, lets see how this goes… cool that its these three guys and not old hat but Cena isn’t going to lose the title right now so it doesn’t fucking matter.

Diva’s Champion Brie & Nicki Bella vs. Eve & Kelly Kelly

Right after the match Kharma comes out to the ring slowly. The Bella’s hide at ringside while Eve and Kelly look on. The Bella’s then run up the ramp. Kelly goes to the outside while Eve gets the clothesline. Kharma then runs off Kelly and heads back in the ring to finish off Eve with an implant buster. They are definitely doing a good job getting her over.

Zack Ryder (oh shit, yeah on RAW) and he’s showing Cena how to fist bump before he does the walk.

Miz and Riley in the back watching the footage from last week. Riley tries to defend himself but Miz isn’t having it. Riley keeps apologizing but Miz keeps cutting him down. Riley says he’s going to make it up to Miz and walks off.

They then follow Riley in the back walking, he then comes out to the arena and gets into the ring. He gets on the mic and says he only cares about the Miz and is going to prove it to Miz by challenging John Cena to a match. It takes Cena a while but he finally comes out.

WrestleMania comes out tomorrow on Blu-ray and DVD bitches!

Michael Cole is in the ring after the break, he’s retiring from in-ring competition after beating Lawler twice on ppv. He says he’s retiring undefeated. Lawler comes into the ring but Cole says The King cant touch him or he’ll be fired. Lawler cuts to the footage last week with Rock beating on Cole. Lawler challenges Cole with the stipulation that if he loses that he would induct Cole into the Hall of Fame himself and even give Cole his HOF ring. Cole says he doesn’t think so and goes back into his glass cage of human emotions. Cole is now pissed cause Lawler couldn’t let him retire in peace, cuts down Tennessee, Al Gore (putting over George W. Bush), Elvis and Lawler. Cole says he decided yesterday to retire from wrestling and how he and his mom watched WrestleMania over and over. Cole goes back to talking shit about Lawler and asked him what he did for mothers day. Cole plays up the asshole role again on Lawler’s mom. Lawler goes to attack Cole but Swagger attacks Lawler from behind taking him out with the ring post.

Winner: Kofi Kingston

Lawler takes out Swagger then start to throw furniture into Cole’s glass box. Lawler then takes Cole’s tie from the hole in the box and bounces Coles he’s off the glass multiple times before just the refs come out to pull him off. Swagger comes over and checks on Cole while yelling how Lawler is now fired for touching Cole. Lawler says he only touched his tie. Swagger then accepts the match for Cole but Cole is freaking out about it. Lawler celebrates on the announce table.

Let’s hope this is the end of this shit finally… its run its course folks.

Truth then comes out of nowhere and hits the mic check on Rey in the ring as we go off the air.

Ok RAW I guess. They set up matches for the ppv but right now they are just “eh” matches.

04-18-11 WWE RAW REVIEW

April 18, 2011

We get Cole, Lawler and good ol’ JR tonight. Let’s see how long this lasts. Cole starts yelling off the bat when Lawler and JR don’t say anything over R-Truth’s music.

Truth comes out and does his usual “what’s up” thing. He’s all excited that he’s in the main event of Extreme Rules and talks about his road to this point. Truth says like it or not he’s walking out WWE Champion and how he’s going to be the most fighting champion. John Morrison then comes out all smiley, they greet each other and Morrison congratulates Truth but then goes into what happened last week and how he was lucky. They banter back and forth when Morrison cuts to footage of Truth last week taking a “rest break” and drinking water while Cena came out for the Gauntlet match. Morrison gives him a hard time about his health when Truth starts to get annoyed while Morrison brings up the fact that Truth smokes. They now banter about smoking… is this a fucking PSA!? Truth knows what Morrison is up to saying he is trying to get into his head so he puts up his title match at the ppv and Morrison tells him that’s a good idea and how they should wrestle each other since the draft is next week and it might not happen again. Truth wanted to come out and celebrate not wrestle but Morrison reminds him said he was going to be a fighting champion. Truth gets suckered into this shit while the crowd chants “fight”.

Morrison goes up to Truth and offers his hand. Truth looks pissed and looks like he’s going to leave but then jumps Morrison and pulls him off the top rope while he was celebrating. Running knee by Truth which sends Morrison to the outside, he then sits in the corner looking frustrated but before he goes to the outside lands another running knee to Morrison into the barricade. Truth plays up being conflicted by his actions, then grabs Morrison by the head and tries to apologize and carry him off. This doesn’t last long when Truth knocks him down, drinks more water only to hit Morrison with the bottle of water. An “R-Truth sucks” chant starts which doesn’t make his ass happy. Morrison gets on his feet again while Truth tells him that Morrison did this. He then hits that Zig Zag type move onto him at ring side and starts asking the crowd who’s got a smoke. He takes a pack from “someone in the crowd” and lights up at ringside!? The crowd chants “that’s illegal” haha! Truth kneels in front of Morrison and blows smoke at him then flicks the cigarette at him before he bounces.

So a black man can’t get a break in the WWE unless he’s a heel I guess…

WWE Draft is back next week… not that it matters seeing now much cross branding they’ve been doing lately.

Miz says he’s been getting ready for a match with Cena and Truth but then Truth made a bad decision and how those actions affect him because he now has to go against Cena and Morrison in a steel cage. He goes through scenarios that can happen in that match, where he can lose the match without getting pinned. He then asks Riley to bring a chair to the ring where he will wait until the GM changes this. Miz sits and waits, then we go to commercial… we’re back and Miz is yapping away still.

All of a sudden Sin Cara’s music hit and he runs down to the ring and clears the top rope well this time around. We get a “Sin Cara” chant but then fucking John Cena comes down to ruin this shit….

He says he’s been in a lot of pain lately and losing feeling in his arms. The WWE wanted him to get more tests and that those tests indicate he has to retire, how he has no choice in the matter. He gets an ovation while Edge gets emotional, fuck I hope this isn’t legit right now… “Thank you Edge” chant breaks out loud. He brings up his friendship with Christian and how he helped him feel better by reminding him what he has accomplished. He brings up how he and Christian would go to the shows and how they wanted to do that one day. How he’s gone on to wrestle Taker at WrestleMania and has won more championships then anyone. He said he couldn’t dream of going out on top as World Champion. He brings up all of his incarnations in the WWE. He hopes he’s gain the locker room and the fans respect. He says he is going to miss all of this but he doesn’t have to wear tights tomorrow and eat a lot of ice cream. He said he would do it all again in a heartbeat and thanks us. Edge then gets a standing ovation while they chant again “thank you Edge”. Edge then walks up the ramp and poses one last time while his music hits. He then walks to the back and we fade to black. Well this came out of nowhere!!?!?! What the fuck!? If it is the end for Edge it’s a shame, I know I personally enjoyed Edge’s career in the WWE and still to this day kick myself for not seeing him with his first WWE title live cause I didn’t order that damned ppv.

The go to backstage footage of Edge walking in the back and getting an ovation from the locker room while he hands out hugs. This is as real as it gets when they got the lock room good and bad showing respect for Edge.

WWE Champion The Miz with Alex Riley comes out to the ring all dressed up as usual.

5-Man Gauntlet to become the #1 Contender

-Randy Orton and Ziggler start this.

-Sounds like the wind has been taken out of this crowd.

-They are going through the motions but its not really registering much.

-vertical DDT by Orton but then Nexus returns and causes the distraction for the Ziggler pin.

The GM says there isn’t 1 contender now, there are two! Miz vs. Truth vs. Cena… well this is weird. Truth and Cena then clean house with Cena hitting an AA on Riley. Truth and Cena shake hands but then start jokingly pushing each other, it turns serious but Truth smiles it off and walks off.

This was just an odd RAW. Brie wins the Diva’s Title, Sin Cara falls off the top rope, they tease a Corre break up already, they tease a Swagger face turn, Edge might be done and R-Truth who has seemed to be in the dog house since he called out the wrong city on RAW a few months ago is now headlining a ppv. Such a strange night.

Elimination Chamber Predictions

February 20, 2011

Raw Elimination Chamber Match

John Cena vs John Morrison vs R-Truth vs Randy Orton vs King Sheamus vs CM Punk

Great Puma – CM Punk should be the last man standing. Punk’s stablemate, Michael McGillicutty, should have something to do with that. Cena will be eliminated due to the Miz interfering. Truth and JoMo will provide the high spots with Truth being eliminated first. I think Orton’s momentum is all but gone. Sheamus doesn’t need to win since he has a date with HHH at Wrestlemania. I would love to see the last two men being JoMo and Punk. As much as I want JoMo to get his come-uppance, CM Punk wins this Elimination Chamber. My only disappointment is that JoMo won’t have a high profile match at Wrestlemania.

Mascara De Fuego – I would love to see your picks at WrestleMania Puma, but I don’t think we’re going to get a Cena-free main event at the biggest show of the year. I think they’ve been building towards that and quite honestly if Cena doesn’t get this match where else does he fit on the card? I think Morrison and possibly Punk are going to end up in the Money in the Bank match. I think it would be a waste to do Sheamus vs. Triple H now because we’re running out of time to build it and seeing as Sheamus’ push has been in limbo since winning the King of the Ring, (yes that doesn’t make sense at all) it was just be a squash. Right now with The Rock on the show, I think they should leave Sheamus and HHH for something like SummerSlam so you can put more behind it than just another match at WrestleMania.

01-03-11 WWE RAW REVIEW

January 3, 2011

The show starts with a recap of Cena, Nexus and CM Punk from last week. They cut to Michael Cole who explains that Cena wont be at the show and bring up his possible injury at the house show. He puts over the WWE Title match which is starting off the show and how “rare” it is for the WWE Title to be defended on RAW. Cool to put over this match but so not true. I kind of like this recap intro thing Cole just did.
