Yo, comics is dead, wrassling is life. From here on out, Gotham Spoilers is a warssling website. Maybe. Probably. I might not do this next week, who knows? Basically what I'm going to be doing is updating this post through my watching of Raw with all my thoughts on how I wish the entire roster, outside of a few guys and ladies, were just replaced with the NXT roster. Probably going to update during the commercial breaks.
SO LET'S GO WRASSLING.
The Pre-Game Thoughts:
That's about it on that subject.
Regardless, what do we have to look forward to tonight? Cena fighting someone else for the US Title (spoilers, he wins, because he has to fight Rusev at Extreme Rules). Rollins is the champ... so Randy Orton is probably going to show up? And just for good fucking measure, let's put Roman Reigns in there too, because well love Roman Reigns. I smell a Randy/Roman vs. Rollins/Big Show tag match coming. If I want to be super cynical, I'll say Ryback and Kane will be in there too, because why the fuck not just do the same match again, because it's the NCAA finals, who's watching Raw? Also, speaking of Big Show...
For real. The Authority is the big heel stable with Seth Rollins leading (the active wrestlers) and who is he flanked by? Kane... just give him back the mask, and fucking Big Show. I'm supposed to give a shit about Big Show being one of the "top heels" by storyline standards? Fuck off. And now they had him win the Andre the Giant Battle Royal, the match filled with so many mid carders, and an NXT guy who they're sure to fuck up, to the point of no one giving a shit? Great. Awesome. Now every time Big Show comes out they have to mention that for the next four months and he's going to stand next to the trophy doing the pose going "I'm Big Show and I matter, please stop chanting 'please retire' because I'm important."
I guess Sheamus is also going to be a thing. He looks dumb as all hell now, straight up Zoidberg, but to be honest, I don't hate him as a heel. WWE is in desperate need of good heels outside of Rollins (see: my thoughts on Big Show) and he could do well next to BNB... Daniel Bryan/Dolph Ziggler vs Sheamus/BNB? Probably. BUT DOLPH CALLED DANIEL A TURD. Oh well.
Ambrose and Harper probably going to have a match which will lead to an Extreme Rules match as well.
Chances WWE Acknowledges AJ Lee's departure outside of the Bellas cutting a shitty promo burying her? I say low.
The main character of NCIS has the worst haircut ever.
The (not Big) Show:
SHUT UP, BIG SHOW.
Really, we're starting off the show with a segment where Big Show talks? Every time he talks about Seth Rollins, he looks like he's THIS close to admitting his love to him.
So, let's get this straight. Ryback/Randy Orton/Roman Reigns triple threat match for the number one contender, but all three of them have singles matches as well? What the hell, is most of the roster at a house show or something? Also, lol, Ryback. Yeah, sure.
Well that first match was just sort of a wash. Just one of those "who the hell cares?" Kane got a DQ and Randy won. Whatever. But NEVER FEAR GUYS... We got Roman Reigns vs. The Big Show! Total early match of the year contender, right there.
#ThankYouAJ you say JBL? You mean, the same thing CM Punk tweeted!? Shhh, CM Punk doesn't exist! Also, lol, rogue Brad Maddox sighting. Can this whole Seth being sick of Kane thing just lead back to Demon Kane?
Oh, Michael Cole's injury changed from last week? Maybe saying Michael Cole has the same injury that the dude who died in the ring with Rey Mysterio was a bit disrespectful... Maybe just a bit.
Holy shit, Adrian Neville vs. Seth Rollins? Wow, that was kind of unexpected. This is some NXT shit. They're going real hard with this Mighty Mouse shit though. Giving him a cape... That titantron of someone hitting th e earth from space. Damn. I'm surprised on a night that Triple H isn't there, they acknowledge all this NXT continuity and shit. This is the first time I can remember the fact that Rollins was the first NXT champ being mentioned. Fucking good on WWE for this match.
But for real, fucking hell man, that was the first time in awhile I really felt like actually paying attention to a Raw match. More Seth Rollins vs. guys from NXT who came after him, please. Also, like hell am I not replacing Rollins and Neville's heads with Vince and the NXT logo not hat final curb stomp.
And here comes Cena. i've got to admit, now that he's not in the "I WANNA FIGHT BROCK LESNAR" zone, I've come to like him a lot more. I mean, I'm bored with all the times he wins, sure, but he's a pretty entertaining guy outside of his lolwins. I mean, THE DEKE.
