Last night was an incredibly blah Clash of the Champions, that ended with a bang - a phenomenal Bray Wyatt reveal as Seth's new challenger. Let's see how (if) they capitalize on the delicious taste they left in everyone's mouths. Abbreviated version today as Bob had to watch the Browns game to make sure Odell … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: September 16th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up
Raw returns to MSG tonight for the first time in forever. Good ol' "Cowboy" is NOT there, mainly due to laziness. Raw is usually a fucking SLOG to sit through live. Would be more than happy for WWE to make me greatly regret staying home. I instantly regret it as Raw in MSG starts off … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: September 9th, 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
Fresh off a fantastic Summerslam (and an awesome NXT Takover) that saw Seth Rollins go from vanilla loser to at least a Cookies & Cream babyface, let's see if Raw can keep the momentum going. I think I'm starting to pinpoint why Seth Rollins rubs me the wrong way as a babyface. It's because he … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: August 12th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up
Final Raw before Summerslam. I am old enough to remember when a go-home show for a major PPV was MUST-SEE television. Now it's basically "eh, I can get a recap in the video package before the matches." Would be nice if WWE made them seem special again. Let's see how it goes. Also, if you're … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: August 5th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up
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.
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.
WWE makes some booking decisions that are questionable, at best. One of the internet hivemind opinions is that WWE has "messed up" Asuka, or poorly booked her. The truth is, Asuka has been booked perfectly. That's right. Absolutely perfectly.
So we have INTER-GENDER ACTION on tap, which is so X-TR3ME that it feels like WWE Extreme Rules, live this Sunday at 7:00 ET exclusively on the WWE Network has come early! Notes and thoughts from "Cowboy" Bob as he watches...
Hysterical line from Elias about Anthony Davis which is so insanely over the top. Terrible heel who is hilarious. His face turn failed. It shouldn't have. All he had to do was keep the same gimmick, except put him against heels now. WWE for some reason changes your whole act when the crowd cheers you so hard you got turned face to begin with. Very dumb.
