RAW Results - 3/18/13


John Cena def. Darren Young
Ryback def. David Otunga
R-Truth def. Damien Sandow via count out
Team Hell No def. Primo & Epico
Randy Orton and Sheamus def. 3MB
Dolph Ziggler def. Kofi Kingston
Wade Barrett def. Chris Jericho & The Miz

The show begins with John Cena coming down and gives a message to The Rock. "Your time is up, my time is now." He says for those who are on his side he says he won't make the same mistake twice and predict a victory before the time comes to battle. He is ready and he is and focused. He gets interrupted by The Prime Time Players. Titus O'Neill is dressed is some ridiculous get-up. I honestly have no idea why they are out there but it leads to a match between John Cena and Darren Young. Pretty quick match with Cena getting the win with the Attitude Adjustment.

Ryback faced David Otunga in basically a squash match. After the match Ryback hypes his Wrestlemania match alongside Randy Orton and Sheamus. He says his a Mark Henry's path will cross before then. Mark Henry comes down to the ring but is stopped by Teddy Long and Vickie Guerrero. Vickie tells Ryback she is taking him out of the 6 man tag match and putting him in a match against Mark Henry.

Could it be? Are we actually going to see Fandango wrestle a match?! He made it down to the ring and even had an elaborate little light thing in the ring for him. The Great Khali comes down to the ring and before the match gets underway he asks Natalya to pronounce his name. "FAAAAN-DANG-Go get him Khali!" Before Khali gould get his hands on Fandango he books it out of the ring. Again Fandango says he's not wrestling tonight. He exits to the sound of the crowd chanting, "You can't wrestle!"

The R-Truth Damien Sandow match ended in a count out. Thankfully because that match was super boring.

The Undertaker came down to the ring and said CM Punk sealed his own fate at Wrestlemania and he is going to be beat him and beat him bad. He can save his soul if he gives Taker back the urn. On the big screen is Punk mocking Paul Bearer and using the urn as a puppet. CM Punk says there's no disrespect intended all the while doing tricks with the urn ala Harlem Globetrotters. He says there's no denying that when it comes to Wrestlemania Taker is the best in the world. However CM Punk is the best in the world 365 days a year. Punk does some more juggling before dropping the urn and letting out an "oh shit". He says luckily the lid was on so no ashes spilled out, again no disrespect.

Team Hell No vs. Primo and Epico wasn't really exciting. AJ came skipping down to the ring apparently looking to distract Kane but he ends up picking up the win with a Chokeslam.

Backstage Josh Matthews is with Chris Jericho who hypes his match later that night. Fandango jumps into the conversation and wonders if Jericho can pronounce his name. Jericho goes through a ton of different variations which just enrages Fandango. He leaves but Jericho wants to know if he can get two tickets to Dead Man Down, he's trying to take his grandmother.

The Cody Rhodes Alberto Del Rio match is slightly more interesting. Lots of back and forth which makes Cody look good. Del Rio working an injury angle caused this past Wednesday by Jack Swagger which adds an extra element to the match. Some pretty cools spots in the match as well, a modified fac e buster from the top rope and Cody hit a really nice moonsault as well. After the match Jack Swagger jumped Del Rio. Alberto fought back and almost got his hands on Zeb Colter but Swagger stopped the momentum. After throwing Del Rio over the announcer's table Swagger takes out Ricardo Rodriguez with a clothesline and locks in the Patriot Act and practically breaks Rodriguez's ankle.

WWE announces that Booker T. will be the next inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame. They air a very nice video package looking back at the great career Booker T. has had. Congrats Booker it's well deserved.

I was pretty much expecting the 3MB to be a squash match and it wasn't. Wasn't balanced but 3MB didn't get squashed. At the end of the match the Shield come through the crowd and surround the ring. The music of the Big Show hits and he joins Orton and Sheamus in the ring. The 3 wait or the Shield to  enter but they retreat instead. Make sure you check out the most recent podcast for my scenarios for the Big Show's involvement.

Dolph Ziggler had an a pretty good match. After the match Team Hell No came out and challenged Dolph and Big E. Langston to a match. AJ accepts the challenge for the men solely if it's at Wrestlemania and they put the tag titles on the line. They gladly accept the challenge.

The triple threat match was really really good. I would've gone a different route as far as the winner but I'll talk about that on the podcast Sunday.

Triple H comes down to the ring for the contract signing followed by Paul Heyman minus Brock Lesnar. Heyman says Hunter has 2 options. A) walk away from the match and B) fight the match not knowing the stipulation against Brock who has already signed the agreement. Before the stipulation can be revealed Triple H has to sign the contract first. Heyman tells Hunter that he and Brock have spent hours re-watching the footage from three weeks ago where Triple H returned and busted him open. Heyman goes over possible scenarios like a blindfold match or a handcuff and shackles match but even Heyman knows that isn't good enough. He throws a stiff jab and says the winner could get Triple H's wife Stephanie. He asks would that be more fitting for the loser which makes Triple H flip you know what. He decimates Heyman's private security and holds Heyman captive as his own personal beating toy before he signs the contract. He disposes of Heyman and Brock comes out wielding a steel chair. Triple H goes for his weapon of choice and Heyman makes Brock retreat. Heyman says the beating was worth it because the stipulation is No Holds Barred....with Triple H's career on the line! And that's tonight's show folks!

(VIDEO) Triple H and Vince McMahon Give Mae Young A Birthday Gift

In a seriously touching moment Triple H and WWE Chairman Vince McMahon present Hall of Famer Mae Young a custom made WWE Divas title for her 90th birthday. Her and Vince reminisce about when Vince Jr. first got involved with the family business and who she wants face when she's 100. It was awesome.

Here's the link to the video (WWE are super strict when it comes to their exclusive videos): McMahon and Triple H Give Mae Young a Gift

Monday, March 4, 2013


The show kicks off in surprising fashion with The Undertaker coming out to the entrance ramp. He didn't say anything, his music just played as his pyro went off and above him the Wrestlemania 29 logo on the big screen.

Raw played an updated version of the original opening and the ring is designed similar to the way it was in 1993. CM Punk comes out with Paul Heyman and he says he should be main eventing as Champion at Wrestlemania but he isn't. He says there's no point in being at Wrestlemania but what the people just witnessed (Taker) gave him purpose. Punk has a new number, 20-1. Randy Orton comes out and asks the WWE Universe who'd they rather see face Taker at Wrestlemania, CM Punk or Randy Orton? Big Show makes his way out and this starting to become a "I can beat him and you can't" style segment. Vickie Guerrero comes out and sets up a fatal four way match. The winner will face The Undertaker at Wrestlemania.

Back for commercial and Antonio Cesaro is set to take on Ryback. Cesaro is so impressive in the sense he can have a decent match with just about anyone. Ryback hits a couple of interesting power moves but Cesaro is right there with him countering with every open opportunity. Ryback went for the meathook clothesline but Cesaro counters with the European Uppercut. He attempts the Neutralizer but he couldn't lift Ryback. He gets countered into Shellshock and Ryback picks up the win.

As Ryback walks up the entrance ramp Mark Henry comes out and the two men get into an intense stare down. Henry gets into the ring for his match against Zack Ryder. Its basically a squash match with Henry picking up the win in a match that was probably no longer than 5 minutes.

Up next is Dolph Ziggler vs. The Miz. Miz asks WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair to be in his corner. Miz picked up the win using the figure four but what's more confusing is Dolph, the man who is considered the future of WWE, The Money in the Bank holder, loses another match.

Back from commercial and The Rock comes down to the ring. It's the usual Rock schtick until John Cena comes out. John says that his loss to The Rock at last year's Wrestlemania not only destroyed his life personally but also professionally. As someone mentioned on Twitter, it seems as if this segment is to promote this year's match tagline, Greatness vs. Redemption.

Back from commercial with Jack Swagger in the ring with Zeb Coulter. Jack is set to do battle with Hall of Famer Hacksaw Jim Duggan. Before the match could begin, Swagger steals Duggan's 2 X 4 and attacks Duggan along with his friends, Dusty Rhodes and Sgt. Slaughter. He locks on the Patriot Act for a few minutes before exiting. The match never even place.

Back from commercial and the camera shows Swagger and Coulter gloating about what they just did to the three legends. Out of nowhere Swagger is attacked by Alberto Del Rio. Both men had to be separated by officials.

Back in the ring with Ted DiBiase ringside for the match pitting The PrimeTime Players vs. Team Hell No. PTP asked DiBiase to consider being their manager. He said if they can beat Team Hell No he'd consider it. PTP is consistently putting on good matches. If WWE truly wants to revive the tag team division look for them to be, pun intended, prime time players. The finish comes with Kane catching Darren Young from the top and slamming him down with a chokeslam for the win. As Young laid motionless, DiBiase stuffed a real 100 dollar bill in his mouth. Not to worry, as everyone was walking up the ramp Daniel Bryan stole the bill for himself.

Back from commercial with Brodus Clay and Tensai. They introduce Honky Tonk Man to be in their corner vs. Drew McIntyre and Heath Slater of 3MB. The match is over in less than 2 minutes with Tensai picking up the win with a roll up. After the match all three men do the shake rattle and roll and Slater interrupts. He gets his cranium cleaned by Honky Tonk and his guitar.

Back from commercial with Kofi Kingston in the ring ready to take on the debuting Fandango. He seems to have an issue with the way Justin Roberts says his name and refuses to wrestle until he gets it right. Poor Justin can't so we get no Fandango.

After a recap of the confrontation between McMahon and Heyman which subsequently lead to the confrontation between Triple H and Brock Lesnar, HHH makes way down to the ring. He says even he thought he was done but Lesnar's attack on his father in law was all the reason he he needed to come back. He calls out Brock for a match at Wrestlemania.

Back from commercial and we get a recorded message from The Shield. They basically put everyone involved in tonight's fatal four (except Punk) way as well as The Undertaker on notice. The eye of justice is always watching.

Back to the ring with Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett in the ring ready for his match against World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio. During the match Jack Swagger along with Zeb enter the top of the ramp apparently scouting Swagger's Wrestlemania opponent. A pretty solid match, didn't make Barrett look like a slouch. Del Rio gets the win via submission to the cross arm breaker.

We get another video from Zeb Coulter, this time the subject is political correctness.

Back to the ring and Primo and Epico get set to take on the New Age Outlaws. Pretty cool to see NAO in the ring on Raw, both men still can move pretty well in the ring. Perhaps another chance for the E to boost their tag division?

Back from commercial and it just so happens to be Mae Young's birthday! We got cake, candles, Divas, and hey look they even let Bo Dallas join the celebration! As everyone's singing happy birthday to Mae, WWE's version of the grumpy cat, CM Punk interrupts the party to make his way to the ring for his match vs. Sheamus vs. Randy Orton vs. the Big Show. Winner faces the Undertaker at Wrestlemania. The match is a lot of CM Punk taking on each individual separately. Big Show hits WMD on Punk but then has to do battle with Sheamus who was actually able to lift Sheamus for White  Noise. Before he could hit the Brogue Kick he gets power slammed by Orton. Orton gets choke slammed by Show who then suffers a Brogue Kick after a few exchanges with Sheamus. Orton hits the RKO on Sheamus. When he rebounds Punk is right there and hits the GTS and gets the win. As he celebrates his victory the gong hits, the lights go out and here comes the Undertaker. Both men get into a stare to close the show.

Tonight's Raw from Dallas, Texas starts off with Mr. McMahon hobbling down to the ring in crutches. He says now that the road to Wrestlemania is underway Raw needs to be better and bigger. He says it starts tonight with a fight between him and Paul Heyman. Mr. McMahon calls out Paul Heyman who is dressed in street clothes. Heyman says he has seen Mr. McMahon beat different wrestling promoters and even seen McMahon beat congress, but he won't be able to defeat Paul Heyman tonight. Heyman spats a couple more insults before hitting McMahon with a take down. He grabs a crutch a strikes Vince over the back. He goes for a second strike but McMahon blocks it. Vince hits him in the stomach with the bottom end of the crutch the strikes him over the back as well. As McMahon goes to capitalize teh music of Brock Lesnar hits and the beast makes his way into the ring. He stares McMahon down and right when he is about to pounce the music of HHH hits and The Game returns! He slowly and methodically walks down to the ring and when he gets to the bottom of the ramp Lesnar jumps out and the two begin to brawl. Sometime in the exchange HHH sends Lesnar to the ring post which causes a big gash on his head. There's blood everywhere as the two keep brawling and Brock hits a modified Attitude Adjustment on the announce table. Both men re-enter the ring where a back and forth exchange leads to HHH getting the upper hand and Lesnar, a bloody mess, retreating to the back. Great way to set up their match at Wrestlemania 29.

Back from commercial break with Ryback and Dolph Ziggler set to battle each other. The beginning of the match is basically Ryback tossing Dolph like he's a rag doll. Ziggler finally gets some offense going thanks to an interference from Big E Langston. The offense only lasted a short while and even a distraction from AJ Lee wasn't enough for Dolph getting beat by Shellshock. Ryback wins via pin.

Back from commercial break and CM Punk comes down to the ring. He says tonight people in attendance and those watching at home will witness history. Tonight is the end as well as the beginning. Tonight is not about a match, John Cena, or The Rock. Not even about Wrestlemania. Tonight is about CM Punk taking his place in the main event. This promo is as "me, me, me, me, me" as you can get. He even goes as far as to call himself God.

WWE announces the 2013 Hall of Fame Celebrity inductee Donald Trump. Yup.

We're back from commercial and Mark Henry and the Great Khali set to face off. We've seen this match before, I doubt it's different. I will say Henry walking around the ring with Khali in his arms before delivering the World's Strongest Slam was pretty impressive. Henry wins via pin.

The Miz comes down to the ring to get ready for a Miz TV with guests Jack Swagger with Zeb Colter and Alberto Del Rio. Colter wastes no time taking a jab at Glenn Beck. He goes on to talk about illegal immigrants and how they take our jobs and stuff. Del Rio argues back that America is the greatest country on Earth and the reason why is because it doesn't to one single person but to everyone which is why he is here, it's the land of opportunity. The quiet Jack Swagger simply says, "We will see you at Wrestlemania, WE THE PEOPLE." Swagger and Colter exit.

Back from commercial and we are ready to go with Randy Orton taking on Antonio Cesaro. It was a fairly quick match. Neither man was really ahead of the other. The finish came with Cesaro attempting a European uppercut from the second rope but Orton countered right into an RKO, pretty cool. Winner via pin Randy Orton.

Backstage Team Hell No look on. Bryan says that for Team Hell No to defeat the Primetime Players the have to let their issues go. Bryan suggests that for their match, Kane just stays in the corner because Bryan can defeat PTP, even blindfolded. Kane suggests Daniel take his own advice because he could take PTP with one arm tied behind his back. Vickie Guerrero and her assistant brad Maddox interrupt the bickering tag team to inform them that their tag match will indeed be with Bryan blindfolded and one arm tied behind Kane's arm.

A snappy dressed Sheamus makes his way down to a red carpeted ring. He talks about how much a movie fan he is and how he was excited for the Oscars. He tells us how he's also excited to see Wade Barrett make his acting debut in Dead Man Down. He shows a clip of Wade Barrett's part of the movie but it's just Wade in the back, out of focus, and silent. I think that's his whole part. Kinda funny. Wade Barrett comes down to the ring and says while he's on a real red carpet for the premiere for Dead Man Down Sheamus will just be sitting in some irish pub. The two trade some insults and Wade goes for the Bullhamer but Sheamus ducks and attempts the Brogue kick but Wade exits through the ropes.

Back from commercial and Cody Rhodes is in the ring to take on R-Truth. This is Truth's first match quite some time, he was out with injury. Pretty non eventful match. Truth wins via pinfall. As soon as the ref counts three Damien Sandow is in the ring looking to pummel Truth but gets the tables turned on him.

Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler show us a new Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter video, this one on the topic of jobs.

Back from commercial and a one armed Kane and a blindfolded Daniel Bryan are in the ring to take on the Primetime Players. Daniel Bryan's performance in this match was excellent. Kane comes in off a blind tag and even with one arm, cleans house. He hits Darren Young with a choke slam to pick up the win for Team Hell No.

Back from commercial and Raw recaps the events from earlier tonight. The Shield comes from the crowd ready to speak. They say WWE could bring an army and they would never defeat The Shield. They run through of all the Superstars they dropped and in retrospect, it's a pretty impressive list. Just then Sheamus enters at the top of the stage and says if The Shield's looking for a fight then why don't they go fight him. After a while Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose make their way to Sheamus while Seth Rollins hangs back in the ring. Out of the crowd comes Randy Orton who blindsides Rollins with a hit and run RKO. Orton retreats back into the crowd and celebrates with the WWE fans.

Back from and commercial with Jack Swagger in the ring ready for his match against The Miz. This match came about due to a blind attack from Swagger on The Miz after their segment during the commercial break. As Michael Cole stated, with Zeb Colter by he side Jack Swagger is more aggressive, more focused. Swagger is in control for the majority of the match but Miz did catch fire. However Miz leg gets caught in the ropes and it wrenches his knee. After Miz is freed from the ropes Swagger chop blocks him from behind. He locks in the Patriot Act and Miz is forced to tap out. Winner via submission Jack Swagger.

John Cena is interviewed by Josh Matthews backstage. He hypes his match tonight vs. CM Punk.

The Main Event of the night comes and you can just feel like this match had big fight written all over it. Forgive the lack of recap but Cena and Punk just have this chemistry when they do battle it's magic. Tonight was no exception. John Cena and CM Punk brought everything and more into tonight's match. Both men just went at it and not in a brawling fashion, ladies and gentlemen John Cena wrestled. Not only did they wrestle but dammit this match maybe our next Wrestling Classics episode. That good. Anyway Cena picked up the win via pinfall. He out of nowhere hits this semi botched Frankensteiner which dazed Punk and then he hoisted Punk and brought him down with the Attitude Adjustment.

That's tonight's show. Make sure to comment, tweet, or hit us up on Facebook and let me know what you thought of tonight's show! Also send your questions in for the podcast Sunday!

SuperBowl Sunday!

I'm just a casual football fan, I have no real team to root for. I'm a baseball guy. Anyway, I've spent most of my day watching DX: New and Improved DVD on Netflix. The biggest story to come out of the wrestling world recently is Bret Hart saying HHH never really contributed anything to the sport of professional wrestling, not even in the top 1000 wrestlers of all time, and his match with The Undertaker at last year's Wrestlemania "...was a 4 at best." Now I know Trips isn't the most liked guy in the wrestling business but I wouldn't absolutely bury him in that way. Obviously Mr. Hart is entitled to his opinion and he is one of the best to speak on the matter but it does come across as a tad bit bitter.

Anyway for anyone who says HHH never has had an entertaining match, I ask you to give this a look perhaps during the Halftime Show, if Beyoncé isn't your thing.

Happy SuperBowl everyone! May whichever team you are rooting for be the victor!
