Can the build to the least exciting Summerslam in history be saved? Will anyone, including all of those cats, possibly give a shit about Natalya getting another title shot? We find out - NEXT! End of Modern Family going on. Sometimes random clips I see are funny, but you know what always rubbed me the … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: July 29th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up
Good ol' "Cowboy" Bob has long been a proponent of the women's revolution in WWE. Sure, it's half-PR bullshit. But "Cowboy" grew up in the Attitude Era. He lived through Torrie Wilson and The Kat title reigns.

Ah, 1992. What a time to be alive. Jump by Kris Kross was taking the nation by storm. Al Pacino was yelling HOO-AH in Scent of a Woman.

At the time, we thought it was a fun, silly little segment. We also somehow immediately pushed aside that Triple H essentially made it sound as if he drugged a woman and raped her. But it was simpler times back then.
Imagine a world where Hulkamania did not ever exist. A cruel, desolate, cold world, to be sure. But dwell in it for a moment.
Following last night's Raw setting up one of the shittiest Summerslams in recent history, hopefully Smackdown does something interesting.
The night after Extreme Rules we kick off Summerslam season with what is also allegedly Paul Heyman's first Raw. After making AEW look like a show at Hackensack, NJ high school last night, WWE tries to capitalize on the momentum of a good show.
