From now on, “X-Pac heat” is dead. We’ll now refer to that reaction as “Miz heat”.
What if, instead of chanting “CM Punk” when AJ Lee comes out, you just stepped into traffic? Yeah?
Do you all realize how funny it’s gonna be one day, when the WWE finally does what every other “long-running weekly episodic TV show” does and puts their “seasons” out on DVD and Blu-Ray? People are going to see Dean Ambrose say, “What? It’s for charity.” and just think, “That guy’s nutty, where the hell did that come from? Charity. That’s silly.” They’re not going to remember the Ice Bucket Challenge was a thing, they’re just gonna think he’s a WiLdCaRd.
When she says “$9.99”, I don’t cringe. She gets away with it. I have such a crush on her, you guys, seriously.
I figured it out. This whole thing started back when Nikki and Brie were both trying to date Daniel Bryan, and Daniel wound up dating Gail Kim (of all people, for some reason).
Man, that’s weird that such a storyline happened within the last like 4 years. What happens to the time? I feel like Gail has been in TNA for 10 years now.
You tell ‘em, Ronald!
You gotta love that. This guy has watched enough of the product to be “sick of” something, yet it’s gone downhill since 1997-2001. He’s continued watching for over 12 years, but it’s “gone downhill”.
If you’re anything like this guy, just fucking gargle jacks or something.
Pat The Ref accepts the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! [August 18th, 2014]
Earlier today, I challenged Pat The Ref to the Ice Bucket Challenge. He came by about 20 minutes ago and accepted, then challenged Team Best Dude (nickmaniwa and thereedbentley), “Cowboy” Ace Perry, and Christian Skyfire. Do they have the guts?
Also, the-reaper-89 had already done the challenge, so he’s exempt from my earlier challenge. Still waiting on Liz and Dolph Ziggler!

Match of the Day: Monday- Nick Maniwa
PG-13 vs. Sonny Rogers & Al Brown
WWF Raw- September 1995
PG-13 make their WWF Monday Night Raw debuts and squash the holy hell out of Al Brown and Sonny Rogers. A lot of innovative stuff for 1995. The bulldog Wolfie hits off the top on Al Brown is fucking disgusting. Gotta love PG-13.
Nikki Bella turns on her sister; helps Stephanie McMahon defeat Brie Bella [August 17th, 2014]
Betrayal is defined as, “the breaking or violation of a presumptive contract, trust, or confidence that produces moral and psychological conflict within a relationship amongst individuals, between organizations or between individuals and organizations”. Last night, Nikki Bella’s betrayal of her sister Brie shocked the WWE Universe, and true to the definition, is sure to cause a psychological conflict between Brie and Nikki.
To stand tall over her sister had to have been surreal for Nikki Bella. She had just attacked Brie, her sister, who she has traveled through life with. They grew up together, went to the same schools, wore the same clothes, and were able to finish each other’s sentences. Most twins are able to determine each others paths before they even take it. In this case, Brie seemed to be completely clueless to what Nikki did to her last night.
After several months of torment to her sister, Brie Bella arrived on Raw last month to support her sister Nikki from ringside. Stephanie McMahon came out to stir the pot, leading to a confrontation between McMahon and Brie. After Brie was slapped by Stephanie, city officials came out later to arrest her. Weeks later, Stephanie introduced the WWE physical therapist Megan, who informed the WWE Universe that she was having an affair with Brie’s husband, Daniel Bryan. Brie attacked Megan, and was later arrested for her actions.
At SummerSlam, Stephanie McMahon dominated most of the match, taking pure anger out on Brie Bella for the embarrassment Stephanie had to endure as a result of being arrested. When Brie started to gain the advantage, times got desperate, as Triple H even had to pull the referee out of the ring during a fall. When Stephanie attempted to leave the ring, she was trapped from both sides by either of the Bella Twins, who stood on either side of McMahon. However, it was Nikki who pulled Stephanie out of the way and knocked her sister, Brie, to the canvas. Nikki then helped Stephanie back to her feet, who delivered a Pedigree to Brie for the 1-2-3 victory. Afterward, Nikki, who was almost in a trance, left the ring, where Triple H and Stephanie were celebrating.
One has to wonder exactly what transpired in the mind of Nikki Bella. Was it the fact that Brie was gaining attention on Total Divas for her “Brie Mode” movement? Is it because Brie’s husband, Daniel Bryan, dethroned Nikki’s beau John Cena a year ago at SummerSlam? Was it because Brie caused Nikki a lot of grief by quitting her job at the WWE and leaving Nikki to take the punishment after Brie slapped Stephanie McMahon? Or is it just another case, much like Seth Rollins’, where Nikki simply saw that conformity can lead to success?
Shane Mercer launches Kongo Kong [July 17th, 2014]
Although Shane Mercer was unable to defeat Kongo Kong for the IWA Mid-South World Championship, he was able to pull off this unbelievable feat. During the throws of their match, Mercer literally scooped Kong from the top rope and sent the 400+ pounder flying with a fallaway slam. Talk about impressive!

Brock Lesnar is the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion [August 17th, 2014]
Where was The Champ’s rally? The Five Knuckle Shuffle? That knowing grin he loves to throw the WWE Universe as if to say, “Yeah, I got this one”? They weren’t on display at the STAPLES Center. The only thing that was there was a monster with a black heart and two championship titles in his death grip.
For much of the match, the voice of a lone child could be heard chanting, “Let’s go, Cena!” By the time Brock Lesnar’s hand was raised in victory, the kid had fallen silent. Dreams had been dashed. Hopes had been crushed. And a Beast had become king. - WWE.com
Perhaps nothing else could have summed up the disheartening end of SummerSlam better. John Cena, the man who has personified the heart of the WWE, was dethroned by the monstrous Brock Lesnar. Where Cena fought to be king, Lesnar fought to be emperor.
Was it a good match? No. The match was not a good wrestling match, but instead, a massacre. It was the beast incarnate, Brock Lesnar, doing what he has been trained to do. He drained the life out of John Cena, hitting him almost immediately with the move that has taken out The Undertaker, The Rock, Triple H, Hulk Hogan, and numerous others over the last dozen years: the F-5. Afterward, the game wasn’t even a match to win, but rather a fight to survive, as Lesnar spent the next quarter of an hour dismantling Cena, not trying to wrestle him or outclass him but just proving that he’s a dominating force in not just the WWE, but in the world.
Now that the WWE World Heavyweight Championship has shifted to the hands of Lesnar, one has to wonder what’s next for the rest of the WWE’s roster. Randy Orton’s focus was on defeating Roman Reigns to get him out of a way for a title shot, but now the Viper has to challenge the beast. Seth Rollins defeated Dean Ambrose in their match to hopefully silence and halt the attacks from Ambrose, but now the man which he has to cash in the Money In The Bank briefcase on is Brock Lesnar. With these facts in place, and a reminder that The Undertaker, who many assumed would never be defeated at WrestleMania, fell victim to Lesnar, one has to wonder… what is it going to take? Who could POSSIBLY defeat Brock Lesnar? What challenger would pose an actual threat to the new, and current WWE World Heavyweight Champion?
Taz (w/ Bill Alfonso) Vs. Buh Buh Ray Dudley (w/ The Dudley Boyz)
ECW Hardcore TV [April 1st, 1996]
By today’s standard in wrestling and their current stance, a match between Taz and Bully Ray would end pretty quickly as Bully has been active and consistent for several years now. He’s at the top of his game, but before he could reach that point, he’d have to go through the Human Suplex Machine, Taz! In the mid-1990’s, there were few wrestlers who held the dominance that Taz had, dismantling everyone in his path and even destroying the ring on a few occasions!
Last night at SummerSlam, all three titles that were contested changed hands. Dolph Ziggler defeated The Miz for the WWE Intercontinental Championship, Paige defeated A.J. Lee for the WWE Divas Championship, and Brock Lesnar defeated John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
This marks the fourth consecutive SummerSlam match that John Cena has lost. He was defeated in 2011 by CM Punk, in 2012 by CM Punk, and in 2013 Daniel Bryan.
