WWE does an angle at Wrestlemania 27 AXXESS

April 2, 2011

From WWE.com – This morning, The Borre attacked Vladimir Kozlov just moments after he defeated Tyler Reks. You can read about it here and watch the video here.

You can probably assume that Kofi Kingston is going to take his place in the 8-Man tag match on Sunday.

~ This is a genius move on the WWE’s part. Considering the amount of followers they have on twitter and on their website, why not further develop their various storylines through different social media platforms?

03-28-11 WWE RAW REVIEW

March 28, 2011

It’s the go-home show for WrestleMania!

 

Show starts right off the back with CM Punk sitting in the ring Indian style with a spot light. He gets a “CM Punk” chant. He says he probably isn’t going to get the reception in Atlanta like he does in Chicago. He says they are his people just like the New Nexus that Randle KeithOrton took out. He turns on the crowd and Nexus saying he doesn’t care what happens to them and if you get punted in the head its not his problem. His only problem is Orton. And now these sell outs in Chicago chant “Randy”. He says he can snap his fingers and get any mindless person to do what he says. He then cuts to the video of last week where Punk tricks Orton with his bus. Punk says Orton’s wife goes to bed with the vision of her husband laying on the ground with Punk standing over him. Punk ends with saying he will end this chapter at WrestleMania. Before he can leave the ring Orton with a bandaged leg comes out, he slowly comes to the ring, they brawl and Orton gets his horizontal rope DDT. Orton looks to go for the RKO but instead takes the corner for the punt, he runs towards Punk but his injured leg gives out. Punk rolls out of the ring while we get another chant for him and he looks back at Orton favoring his leg. Punk smiles as he comes into the ring and corners Orton. Punk then kicks Orton’s leg and he’s down. Punk then takes Orton up and hits the G2S! Punk then walks off. I think they did a good job of pushing this match one last time.

 

Christian is in the back and walks into Edge. Edge says he can’t lay his hands on Del Rio on Smacky but he can on RAW and Edge says he’s always liked that GM. Haha We get the Edge and Christian tag team return tonight! I’m glad they didn’t blow this match on just a Smackdown but not sure they should have done it on a go home show either unless there is something up here…

 

Edge & Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio & Brodus Clay

-Quick tags by E&C on Clay.

-Clay is then dumped over the top rope, Christian over the top but Clay catches him. Edge hits the baseball slide to send Clay down.

-After the break, ADR has Christian in an arm lock, he tries to fight off but ADR cuts him short.

-Del Rio continually works on Christian’s arm before making the tag to Clay.

-Clay hits the slam then tags ADR back in for the second rope elbow drop.

-Tornado DDT by Christian in the corner on Del Rio and he makes the hot tag but ADR tags in Clay.

-Edge with the back slide on Clay and sets up for the spear but ADR sweeps the leg.

-Christian goes after ADR but is taken out on the barricade.

-Edge ducks the clothesline but Clay and hits the spear for the win!

Winner: Edge and Christian

 

Outside the ring ADR puts the arm breaker on Christian until Edge runs him off. Edge goes back to check on Christian by Del Rio comes back out and puts the arm breaker on Edge! The ref finally gets ADR off of Edge who tells Edge hits his destiny. Good push for this match as well. I liked the fact Edge and Del Rio didn’t actually get into it until the ring.

 

Another solid Sin Cara promo, this time with Aztec temples in the background.

 

The Miz and Riley in the back, they’ve turned the WWE logo in the back upside down.

 

Before anything else can happen we get an email. Cole has an iPad in his glass case. The GM wants to know if Lawler is ready for WrestleMania which a match tonight with Jack Swagger.

 

Video package on the Undertaker and Triple H is shown next. Good shit.

 

We are back from break and The Corre is in the ring.

 

The Corre vs. Big Show, Kane, Kozlov & Santino has been added to WrestleMania.

 

Santino w/Kane, Show, Kozlov & Tamina vs. Justin Gabriel w/The Corre

-Santino chant off the bat.

-Spin kick to Santino after the Slater distraction for a 2 count.

-Splits by Santino into the hip toss and the diving head butt.

-Kozlov sweeps Gabriel’s leg during the ref distraction which it breaks down at ringside.

-Cobra on Gabriel!!! 1…2…THREEE!

Winner: Santino

 

All four are in the ring and Santino has Big Show do the trumpet. Kane doesn’t look amused and stares down Santino but then goes into the trumpet as well for a big pop from the crowd. Funny.

 

Triple H does the walk in the back.

 

Some chick named Keri Hilson is doing America The Beautiful at WrestleMania. Never heard of her but at least it isn’t Justin Bieber or god forbid Rebecca Black.

 

The Undertaker makes his slow ominous way to the ring to a solid pop from the crowd. Right has Taker gets in the ring, Triple H’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring. Before HHH can spit out his water the gongs go off again and the ring goes black. The lights come back on and HHH and Taker are staring at each other in the ring. I have a feeling HBK’s music is about to hit….OH SHIT IT DOES!!! HAHA! Shawn Michael comes out looking as casual as ever in a tee with no sleeves and a beanie… come on Shawn! Crowd is eating this up hard as Taker and HHH stand just staring at each other and glancing over at HBK. “HBK” chant. Michael’s says he is sorry about interrupting but he didn’t want to miss this, he then shills their match, Taker and HHH. Shawn then says neither will be the same again after this Sunday and has one question “what makes you think you can do what I couldn’t” then looks at HHH. Another “HBK” chant. HHH says if he wants to know the truth, HBK got soft when being the showstopper or Mr. WrestleMania was more important. How you don’t have to win every night to be those things but he isn’t Shawn Michaels and that he HAS to win and he will win. HHH says 16 years ago he came into the WWE locker room and saw one guy that stood over them all, how HHH watched him come to the ring all busted up and still put his body on the line. How he learned that if he should pattern his career like anyone it would be Taker. How he respects Taker as much as HBK. Triple H said he and HBK made a promise to each other that when they noticed the other was past his prime they would tell each other and if they didn’t except it they would end it for him, because they respect each other. He said he came back after a year off for one reason only, to stand in front of Taker out of respect and hell him its time. How Triple H can see for Taker to bow out, how Taker will always be these things but that in 6 days he will no longer be undefeated at WrestleMania. Triple H says he’s the one to make Taker 18-1 and the streak as well as Taker will rest in peace. Taker finally takes the mic and says if he ever felt there was a time he needed to be put down he would want it to be HHH because that is the respect he has for him but he says it isn’t that time. How he knows HHH is going to kill himself trying but the streak will be alive and so will he. He says if he doesn’t want to take his word, to ask HBK. How HBK walks around as the guy who gave Taker 2 of his greatest matches of his career but he came up short and didn’t get it done. Now when he looks in the eyes of Shawn Michaels he doesn’t see the old HBK but a man he humbled. He sees a man that will go into the Hall of Fame full of regrets and a career he ended. HBK isn’t happy about this and goes to superkick Taker but he catches his leg and Taker goes to choke slam him but HHH stops him and gets in between them. HHH then tells HBK to tell Taker why he’s going to beat Taker at Mania but HBK stands and stares at Taker instead. The crowd breaks into “one more match chant” while HBK just gets out of the ring and leaves while HHH yells at him. HBK just looks back at him and says “I’m sorry”. Triple H them looks sad face as Taker smirks at him and tips his hat to him before he bounces. This was a really good segment that this match needed desperately.

 

Holy fuck I’m already tired and we haven’t even gotten to the Rock yet!

 

Jack Swagger w/Michael Cole vs. Jerry “The King” Lawler

-Lawler has different music, it sucks.

-Lawler goes for Cole with give Swagger the opening to hit the splash in the corner.

-Swagger takes Lawler to the outside and throws him over the barricade.

-Lawler comes back out with a steel chair that he hits Swagger in the back multiple times for the DQ.

Winner: Jack Swagger

 

Lawler then goes after Cole but he goes into his cage. Lawler takes the chair to the cage and tries to jump over but Cole’s security hold him back. Lawler takes Cole’s face in the face before the security pull him away. Crazy how this is the hottest build up thus far for this ppv.

 

Vicki Guerrero comes out and puts on John Morrison’s glasses and gets his intro with pyro, music and slow mo! Haha Vicki then comes into the ring and delivers her signature line before saying she is going to do to Snooki the same thing she did to Morrison. She then laughs like the Million Dollar Man. Ziggler then comes out.

 

Dolph Ziggler w/Vicki & United States Champion Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan & John Morrison

-Sheamus come out pounding on Morrison.

-Morrison goes for the flash kick but Sheamus catches him and hits the back breaker.

-After the break, Sheamus is covering Morrison for a 2.

-Morrison makes the hot take to Morrison who comes out hitting hard and gets the LaBell Lock on Ziggler until Sheamus breaks it up and makes the tag.

-Sheamus gets a 2 count on Bryan.

-Bryan misses the dropkick in the corner and gets hit with the high cross for the pin…

Winner: Sheamus & Ziggler

 

Well that was bullshit unless you’re having Bryan go over at WrestleMania. If not you just gave away that match.

 

Orton in the back icing his leg. New commentator dude asks if Orton will make it to WrestleMania. He says he has serious anger management issues and ruined careers because he could. He has never hated anyone more than CM Punk. He said his question should be if CM Punk will make it out of WrestleMania.

 

The final inductee for the Hall of Fame is THE ROAD WARRIORS AND PAUL ELLERING!

 

Trish Stratus and Snooki as some bar when Josh is asking them questions. Some dude tries to hit on them but she gets pushed aside. Snooki is drunk but says she is being trained by Trish. This dude wants to get out of here but this dude ends up getting smacked by Snooki the hard way. Josh puts over the match but then cuts back to this bar where LayCool now show but and the brawl is out which a bunch of duds egging them on.

 

We’re back from break and Rock is in the guerilla position. A “Rocky” chant build before he comes out to the ring to a big ol pop! (might have taken a little steam out of people by showing the Rock too early). Crowd keeps cheering and chanting “Rocky” but he finally gets to “Finally….” which the Chicago crowd eats up. He says this is where it all started for the Rock. This was where his first WrestleMania was and he admits to being nervous that night. He said that night he decided to bring it. He then goes on and on about Team Bring It but they eat it up and leads to another “Rocky” chant. He said he has a dream and it was to come to the ring and call out John Cena. “Cena sucks” chant! He calls Cena a homeless Power Ranger and Vanilla Ice while telling us how it went down on in his dream. Rock does his “millions…” and Chicago is heavily on his side. Smiley faced John Cena comes out and runs into the ring. Rock is eye fucking him while Cena just circles and keeps smiling. Cena is getting booed hardcore here, you can barely hear anything positive for this fucker tonight. Cena says this is what he wanted, Rock in a WWE ring. Cena says this is where Rock belongs, he then looks around and asks Rock if he hears the people. Cena brings up opening up his mouth about Rock leaving but he wanted him back for moments like this. Fool is now kissing Rock’s ass… Cena brings up being brought up like a celebrity roast and how that means you’re in. He says what he said had meaning and merit. Another “Cena sucks” chant. Cena says he wanted to know what problem the Rock had with him. Cena said his color he wears, how he was brought up and says hustle, loyalty, respect was crap and how his audience is kids. Cena admits it and says he’s proud of it but still gets booed. He then gets all serious about how he’s worked his tail to the bone and how the hell the Rock is?! He says he walks down to the ring as himself and some like it and some don’t but he doesn’t try to change their mind and he is going to be judged one day but not by the Rock. Rock then says that the good lord will judge him but wont save from getting his ass whooped. Cena says he’s talked to Rock like a man and if he wants a fight, Cena then drops the mic but then we get The Miz’s music. He and Riley come down to the ring all dressed up. Miz says really this is going to be, he calls them the O Brothers, overhyped and overrated. Haha Miz says last week he owned Cena and that he is going to lose at WrestleMania but says Cena will come for a fight not like the Rock. He calls him Rocky and says he knows a secret and that Rock isn’t going to do nothing tonight. Miz then brings up how much his moneys have made and how he isn’t going to risk getting beat up and embarrassed by him. He says he can do it because he is the WWE Champion and that Rock wont do anything because he is the Miz and he is awesome. Rock tells Miz it doesn’t matter what he thinks and Miz and Riley beat up on the Rock!!! Rock fights back and takes out Riley first! DDT by Rock on Miz!!!! THE PEOPLES ELBOW!!! He sends Miz to the outside and Cena is back in ATTITUDE ADUSTMENT TO THE ROCK!!! Huge boo’s from Chicago as Cena points to his purple wristband and bounces up the stage to point at the WrestleMania logo on the stage.

 

This was an AWESOME episode of RAW! Although there wasn’t a lot of matches it pushed the WrestleMania matches like it should. The Taker/HHH promo was solid with HBK being a nice touch and this last segment was perfect, yeah Rock didn’t get his on Cena but that is what they are going to make us pay for! It makes people want to order this show even more so because they know Cena isn’t getting away with this. Great go-home show and really brought home the fact that you MUST order WrestleMania 27!

… I am a little afraid that WrestleMania or the RAW after it will end with Cena and Rock all huggy kissy still…

 

03-21-11 WWE RAW REVIEW

March 21, 2011

The show starts off with Michael Cole coming out dressed as Jim Ross wearing a pillow in his stomach, a neck brace on his leg, holding a BBQ sauce bottle and a mouth full of cotton. Cole talks shit to Lawler before retreating into his glass cage.

Right after that Triple H comes out. He show boats for what seems like 3 months.  He wonders if this is the last time he will be in this building after his match with Taker. He pushes the match and says neither of them will be the same. Triple H then wants Taker to come to RAW next week so he can tell him what’s going to happen at WrestleMania. HHH then says if he doesn’t beat Taker its because he died trying but that Takers record will go to 18-1. He ends with saying the Undertaker will rest in peace.

Ted DiBiase comes out to the stage and wants people to feel sorry for him saying he was at WrestleMania last year but he’s an afterthought this year. He says if he takes out HHH two weeks before WrestleMania, people will notice him. This ends up in a brawl around the ring that HHH wins but fucking up Ted with a steel chair. HHH then completely buries Ted by hitting the pedigree on him through the announce table…. Sigh.

 

United States Champion Sheamus vs. Evan Bourne

-what is it about whoever is the US champion doesn’t get a full introduction anymore!?

-Sheamus starts off quickly manhandling Bourne.

-Evan gets in one spin kick and goes for the shooting star press… he misses and gets hit with the bro kick for the pin.

Winner: Sheamus

 

Sheamus gets on the mic and says he’s the champion of the United States of America. This brings out Daniel Bryan all serious faced. He wants his rematch at WrestleMania. Sheamus throws the belt at Bryan then bro kicks him while he yells about shamrock shakes at McDonalds… wait what!?

Orton shows up when he’s stopped but that new interviewer guy. Orton is asked about this tour bus he travels on now. He says some shit about traveling with his family, blah blah blah. Can you be any more obvious that Punk is going to do something with this bus?!

 

Maryse vs. Diva’s Champion Eve

-these dumbasses argue and Maryse gets bitch slapped.

-Maryse then gets all pissed and beats on Eve.

-Michael Cole gets on the mic and wants this over. They keep wrestling while Cole keeps yelling about finishing this so he can go on with something else he has for Lawler.

-Eve hits the spinning neck breaker to finish this.

Winner: Eve

 

Eve goes and tries to get in the face of Cole but his security and box keep her out. She finally gets a smack on his but he has security take her out.

The Corre are in the ring after the break.

 

WWE Tag Team Champions Slater & Gabriel vs. Santino w/Tamina & Kozlov

-Santino goes for the cobra early but gets a spinkick to the face.

-lack luster hot tag to Kozlov who ends up getting hit with the reverse DDT by Slater then hit with the 450 for the pin.

Winners: The Corre

 

After the match The Corre beat on Santino and Kozlov until The Big Show and Kane’s music hit and they make the save. Show and Kane end their beat down with a double choke slam to Jackson. Show then shakes hands with Santino and Kozlov in the red lit ring.

John Cena via Satellite, funny since he was just making fun of this… ironic? He says next week the problems with The Rock will get settled. Cena admits to underestimating the Miz and puts him over as WWE Champion. Large “Cena sucks” chant in the arena. Cena says at WrestleMania he will make history.

Michael Cole then gets back on the mic and says not like Rock or Cena he is here live. He has another exclusive for Lawler next. Back from the break, Swagger and Cole are running around the ring. Cole then gets on the mic and introduces the man training him, Jack Swagger who is now in front of Lawler. Cole wants to revisit what happened last week with Brian Christopher and Jerry Lawler. Christopher has “given” Cole the Lawler family photo album. He shows pictures of Lawler’s father while talking shit about how embarrassed his father was of Lawler. Cole calls Lawler and his father big ol’ bullies and how he is going to put Lawler in his place at WrestleMania. He said all the Lawler’s have something in common, they are all losers. Lawler goes to get up and Swagger sucker punches him. Lawler comes back and takes out Swagger and starts to chase Cole around the ring until Swagger catches him with a clothesline. Swagger then crushes Lawler’s face on Cole’s glass cage then puts him in the ankle lock. Cole then jumps in with his own ankle lock. Both then celebrate over Lawler’s lifeless body.

Cole apologizes after the break saying Lawler keeps pushing his buttons which is why he snaps.

The recap all the Snookie shit from last week.

 

Dolph Ziggler w/LayCool & Vicki Guererro vs. John Morrison w/Trish Stratus

Winner: by countout? Rey Mysterio

 

Orton runs up to the bus but Punk jumps out of nowhere and takes out Orton’s leg with a wrench. Orton’s wife then comes out and is yelling, Punk makes fun of her then tells her to shut up. Ha. She goes back on the bus. Punk says Orton wont be kicking anyone in the head. He then kicks Orton in the head and stares at Orton’s wife at the door of the bus. Punk then blows her ass a kiss! Haha Punk made this edition of RAW that shit. Punk bounces and Mrs. Orton comes out to help Orton.

We get Taker and Triple H face to face next week AND the Rock will be live in Chicago.

Alex Riley is in the ring with something covered. He brings up being fired a few weeks back but how he was rehired as the Vice President of Corporate Innovations…? He intros Miz who comes out in a blue suit with a pink shirt and tie. Miz says in the 70’s people would travel great distances to see Mohammad Ali and Michael Jordan. He points how far he’s come. He brings up imitating Rock and calls himself an original. He puts himself over as the greatest WWE Champion in history. Miz say has flipped the WWE and the “W” in the WWE logo for an “M” that means Miz. He says its time to rewrite Miz-tory and we get a roll of the drums and a spot light only to show he’s spun the spinner belt so the W is an M… sigh. Damn, and for a quick second I thought we were getting a new belt. He said it wont spin like a toy anymore. He said he’s not going to be a multitime champion because he isn’t losing the title. He’s the Miz and he’s awesome… they then cut back to Cena on the tron again. Cena “clowns” Miz for turning the W into an M. Cena says you should never make him angry. Some dudes take the via satellite stage apart and Cena is actually in the arena. Cena comes out to stage and looks into the camera and says he’s not via satellite, he’s here making fun of the Rock. Cena runs into the ring and is bum rushed by Miz and Riley. Cena finally clears the ring and Miz runs up the stage while Riley comes back in the ring to get locked into the STF. Ref is out but Cena doesn’t break the move until Miz comes back out. Cena looks at Miz and locks the STF back on Riley a few more times while the refs try to pry Cena off of Riley. Cena finally lets off and looks all mad faced… the end.

 

Eh show, mostly just build up.

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.

01-24-11 WWE RAW REVIEW

January 24, 2011

Show starts off with World Champion Edge coming down to the ring and goes right into talking about The Miz. Edge doesn’t feel like waiting at shit like the DMV or the dude in the supermarket paying by check or waiting at the airport or waiting for Cole to stop being a tool or waiting to wrestle the Miz… and we get an email and Cole has a shit grin on his face. He reads the email that says his match will happen later tonight and how the GM didn’t forget all the shit he went through with Edge. The GM has arranged an exhibition, if any of the next three men throw Edge over the top they will get the #40 position in the Royal Rumble.
