A quick mini-blog. That title took quite a bit of time to come up with. Last night on Monday Night Raw, Deonna Purrazzo came out to face Asuka, and the Reddit community went up in flames at the live reactions. Apparently, Redditors were commenting that she looked "fat". /r/SquaredCircle had a fucking conniption about it, … Continue reading Deonna Purrazzo Looked Fat
Rusev, Lana and Bobby Lashley have the greatest storyline in pro wrestling at the moment. That's right. You heard me. That nonsensical, ridiculous, absurd, sleazy, borderline incomprehensible storyline is better than anything else going on in all of wrestling. The internet, will of course, tell you different. I'm not even positive what is going on, … Continue reading Wednesday Night Bores
After an underwhelming-to-say-the-least AEW All Out, I wanted to add a few thoughts on NXT Takeover: Cardiff. It was a good show. Certainly better than AEW's show, which is fairly alarming, which I'll get into in a moment. NXT Takeover: Cardiff was good, but let's not get carried away. Nothing was bad, the tag match … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: September 2nd, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up
It's been a while since I've written a major analysis article. What can I say, the big 4 PPV weekends take a lot out of good ol' "Cowboy" Bob. On our podcast, The Protected Finish, I mentioned once that wrestling is like pizza. It can only be so bad. My podcast partner, Heartbreak Biz, commented … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: August 19th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up
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
Tonight is the "Raw Reunion", which is an obvious and desperate attempt to get ratings by bringing back characters more compelling than Kofi's 20 minute weekly lecture telling us "I won the belt at Wrestlemania and damn life is crazy, man, wow."
We didn't know it back in 1999, but Triple H marrying Stephanie McMahon would legitimately end up being the defining angle of modern-day professional wrestling. 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.
Squandered Talent. You hear it often. Should Mr. Perfect or Million Dollar Man have been champions? Rick Rude? Jake "The Snake" Roberts? Did WWE squander a superstar with the poor booking of Asuka? No. I've debunked that. How could WWE not see Bayley as pure money?! Just untrue.
I got a notification that Braun Strowman is facing Bobby Lashley, so you just KNOW we are in for ONE. HOT. NIGHT. All kidding aside, I believe this is the first official Raw under the Paul Heyman banner, so let's see if it's the same old bullshit or not.
