Ryback: Facts of Life Fan
RAW started with Ryback making an entrance via ambulance. Ryback stood on top of the ambulance and said there was no winner last night. And while John Cena walked away with the WWE Championship, he didn’t walk away, he was carried away. They showed footage of Cena refusing medical attention last night. Ryback said the next time they meet, Cena won’t refuse. Ryback said he didn’t give a damn about what people thought anymore. He proposed an Ambulance Match against John Cena at Payback. Ryback then began to rip on the crowd, calling them fat and weak and that they would skip an ambulance and go straight to the morgue. He called them pathetic for worshipping John Cena. Ryback said he would take John Cena to the morgue at Payback, and there is only one fact of life, “Ryback Rules.”
1. This is the first time I’ve been able to see the new preshow and the idea is growing on me. I like the idea of using different superstars/legends every time & also the fact that it doesn’t seem to be scripted at all. It allows some of the better talkers to show what they can do when not handed a script from a writer. I’m intrigued to see who is on future shows and who sinks or swims. That being said, there’s no way in hell I’m staying awake for a PPV post-show. For a company who already knows they have too much programming, why the hell would they add more?!
2. Dean Ambrose vs Kofi Kingston was one of the best matches of the year thus far. The only time the match’s paced slowed was when Ambrose locked on the classic Bob Backlund “Crossface Chicken Wing”. The ground game of Ambrose played off of Kingston’s aerial moves perfectly and the finish clean! A heel actually won a championship cleanly! Great match and great chemistry between these two wrestlers and I recommend going out of your way to see these match when you can.
: Smackdown kicked off again this week with Miz TV. Between his YouTube matches and his lackluster Piper’s Pit type show is this just a sign of life after the WWE for him?
Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns w/ Dean Ambrose v. The Usos
: Two television appearances in a row and against the hottest act in the WWE. Are the Usos finally going to get a real chance at the main roster? They would add a whole new element to the desperate tag team division.
: Good god who wouldn’t want to see the Damien Sandow Show? Even if you don’t like the guy his segments would be much more entertaining than whatever creative has for The Miz every week.
After what seems like MONTHS away, I will be back tonight on the official Pulse Wrestling Twitter account (@pulsewrestling) watching WWE Extreme Rules with all of you! Be sure to follow along and maybe even get the chance to a win a couple of prizes!
Hello everyone. As you may have read, we are starting to review every wrestling show on the block when it comes to pro wrestling. I’ll be reviewing RAW and Main Event for the time being. Look for my Main Event reviews on Thursday nights. You get it early this week because I don’t have to be in to work til noon!
-Miz is on commentary? Maybe I should just go back to bed.
Seth Rollins vs Kane
-The stip for the Tag Title match at Extreme Rules is a Tornado Tag match. A bit of a reach for a stip but at least the action keeps moving.
1. Pretty solid segment for Fandango and Jericho. When Summer Rae went down, I honestly thought this was WWE’s way of writing her off of TV completely and going with the girl Jericho was supposed to be dancing with, especially with the hype they’ve given her all day on their website. I thought it was pretty funny that JBL was complaining that we were seeing a fight instead of a dance-off considering ALL of his segments as Bradshaw ended in a fight. It was basic but a decent segment to set up an Extreme Rules match and trust me, parquet floors are HARD! As a side note concerning all of this pitching for the WWE App, when I have it open and it goes to “live” video, it asks me to update my Flash player… on my Apple iPad… yup.
2. Dean Ambrose vs Kofi Kingston for the United States Championship at Extreme Rules? Would they even book Ambrose in a title match if he wasn’t going to win it? I guess The Undertaker & Kane gave the former Jon Moxley rave reviews because he’s had a rocket strapped to his ass as far as singles’ competition goes since his one-on-one match with ‘Taker. By the way, did you see this week’s Wallpaper of the Week? If you’re a fan of The Shield, I think you’ll be happy.
We are a week away from Extreme Rules. Will Triple H get revenge for Brock Lesnar destroying his office? Will Ryback continue to morph into Goldberg? And will anyone care to order Extreme Rules? Follow along to find out!
What A Rip Off!
RAW started with Jerry Lawler in the ring introducing Fandango and Chris Jericho for the Dance-Off. Fandango said he didn’t lose the dance contest to the Great Khali. The crowd didn’t respect his abilities. Jericho brought up him winning the musical chairs competition and winning the Price is RAW with Bob Barker. Fandango went first, but didn’t dance. He said he needed silence and told the crowd to “SHHH.” They finally started, but Summer Rae tripped and hurt her ankle. Jericho and her dancer checked on her as Fandango left in disgust. Fandango came back in and attacked Jericho. Fandango threw Jericho into the announce table, then the steps and barricade. He then grabbed a piece of the dance floor and hit Jericho with it. Fandango then jumped back into the ring and Summer Rare hoped up, showing she was faking the whole time.
