  1. You know the drill, ladies and gents. Vote above, give yer thoughts below!

    - RAW Results are below:

    – The show opened with Stephanie McMahon returning, and The Authority announcing “Seth Rollins, Architect of a Dream,” a tribute to Rollins. They discussed the Intercontinental Championship and were interrupted by Sheamus. Ryback interrupted as well, and Ryback vs. Sheamus was made as the night’s opening match.

    1. Sheamus defeated Ryback. Sheamus’ eye was injured, so the referee pulled Ryback away. Sheamus used the distraction to hit a Brogue Kick on Ryback and win the match.

    2. King Barrett defeated Neville. Before the match, Neville was interviewed by Renee Young. They were interrupted by Bo Dallas. Neville acknowledged their history in NXT, so Bo attacked. Neville’s knee was injured, so he was unable to hit his signature moves throughout the match. Barrett capitalized and hit the Bullhammer for the win. Bo continued the attack after the match.

    – Rusev officially banished Lana for explaining that he said “I quit” in Bulgarian during the finish of the I Quit match at Payback.

    3. Bray Wyatt defeated Dean Ambrose. J&J Security interfered, pushing Ambrose off the ropes into a Sister Abigail from Wyatt.

    4. Cesaro and Tyson Kidd defeated The New Day. Xavier Woods was banned from ringside. Cesaro and Kidd won by DQ when Big E and Kofi wouldn’t stop stomping Kidd. After the match, Woods ran out to attack. That brought out the other teams in the upcoming tag team championship Elimination Chamber match: The Lucha Dragons, Los Matadores, The Ascension and The Prime Time Players.

    – John Cena’s U.S. Open Challenge was answered by NXT Champion Kevin Owens. Owens claimed that Cena had nothing to do with Sami Zayn’s injury, and that he had injured him before their match. Cena put his hand over Zayn’s heart and said Owens had none. Owens refused Cena’s U.S. title challenge, but still kicked him in the gut and laid him out with a pop-up powerbomb. Owens stood on the U.S. title and held the NXT Championship over his head.

    5. Dolph Ziggler defeated Stardust. Ziggler won a quick match with the Zig Zag. After the match, Michael Cole interviewed Ziggler and announced him as one of the participants in the Intercontinental Championship Elimination Chamber match. Lana came to the ring and kissed Ziggler twice, for some reason. That brought out an irate Rusev, who attacked Ziggler. Lana slapped him, and Rusev got madder. Ziggler dropped him with a Zig Zag before anything could happen, and left with Lana.

    6. Erick Rowan and Luke Harper defeated Fandango and Zack Ryder. Rowan pinned Fandango after a full nelson slam.

    7. Divas Championship Match: Nikki Bella (c) defeated Naomi. Stephanie McMahon prohibited Brie Bella from being at ringside, saying she needed counseling for her emotional state. Nikki had the match won with a Rack Attack, but was superkicked by Tamina, drawing a DQ. After the match, Paige returned to make the save. After Nikki was safe, Paige hit her with the Rampaige.

    – Kevin Owens will face John Cena for the United States Championship at Elimination Chamber.

    – The Authority honored Seth Rollins. They were interrupted by Dean Ambrose, who wanted a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match at Elimination Chamber. Ambrose and Rollins brawled, and Ambrose revealed a pile of cinder blocks. He held Rollins down on the blocks until The Authority agreed to give him the match. J&J Security and Kane attacked, allowing Rollins a chance to flee. The Ambrose vs. Authority fight continued, and Rollins was able to return to the ring and incapacitate Ambrose with a Pedigree.

  2. Calling it right now.. KO dropping that NXT title either now at the next NXT PPV or soon to T-Breezy, KO winning the US title over John Cen at EC, and then definitely a feud between the two and will put him over.. KO going over is what I mean.. Sounds like a good RAW.. I'll have to re-watch it when I'm sober to catch the full details but that's my predictions at the moment.
  3. This episode was good. 7/10


    - Sheamus vs Ryback was decent.
    - King Barrett vs Neville was OK.
    - Wyatt vs Ambrose was some good stuff.
    - The New Day vs K-Swiss was quite alright till the DQ Fest happened. Oh, well... But, the post-match brawl with all those teams who will be in the EC tag team match was nice!
    - THE DEBUT OF KEVIN OWENS, BAYBAY! Dayumn, I got goosebumps! That whole segment was great!
    - Lana ditching Rusev.
    - Harper & Rowan destroying Fandango and Ryder. I loved that Superkick into a Full Nelson Slam finish!
    - The final segment had stopped being a yawn fest only when Ambrose got involved and from that point on, it was quite alright.

    - The opening segment was a yawn fest, despite The Authority being back.
    - Why the hell would Los Matadores get a spot in the EC over Harper & Rowan?
    Okay, best case scenario: Harper & Rowan attack Los Matadores on their way to the ring and take their spot in the EC for the titles and end up WINNING 'em!
    - DZ vs Stardust was meh and just too short.

    The 'I don't give a toss' about this segment:
    - Gladly skipped the divas match.
  4. Kevin Steen out of ten. I'll also settle for Cornette heart attack out of ten

  5. This was a good raw for several reasons.

    1. Neville and Barrett fought
    2. Kevin Owen whooped cenas ass
    3. Intercontinental title announcement
    4. Dean Ambrose gets his shot at the title
    • Agree Agree x 1
  6. It was okay, some parts were much better than others.

    Lana was brilliant.
    Kevin Owens does heel so well, but sadly that meant we got a shitty Cena promo.
    The six tag team stuff was kind of stupid.
    Nice that Paige is back, but I'm sure we're stuck with Nicki as champ until Summer Slam just so that Total Divas has something 'big' to cover for the next season. Total Divas is clearly the only reason that she still has the title- since nobody actually cares about her.
    Ambrose was the saving grace of the closing segment ofc.
  7. Watched Owens, great stuff. Cena being in the best part of the show is odd, but fair.

  8. Only seen Owen's debut, but that combined with Ambrose getting a title shot at EC is a 10/10 for me.
  9. The Steen/Cena segment was honestly corny as fuck. Sounded like it was written for a 5th grade play. Both guys lines sounded forced.... gross.

    • Dislike Dislike x 1

  10. Yeah, I noticed that too. I remember how Owens sounded against Zayn and it sounded way more natural. I still thought it was dope tho.
  11. Good to see Owens debut. Enjoying Ryback a heck of a lot more recently, Ambrose too.
    Lana is awesome as well, great character. Rollins as good as ever too. 7/10
  12. lmao people need to fuck off with this real quickly. His open challenges have done nothing but put over new talent and the proclaimed future of WWE. It was odd in 2014 but he's been doing pretty smooth all year.

  13. quit on wwe last week or the week before/10.
  14. h
    Of course I'm going to watch Steen's debut. I was surprised to hear it happened so soon
    • Agree Agree x 1
  15. Yes, it's what I meant indeed. I say it's odd because it is funny to think how one man so universally hated has legitimately become the best part of the show, but in fact it happened because he has been awesome recently.
  16. He was beyond horrible Monday. His promo was cringeworthy even by his standards. Steen wasn't comfortable at all.

    I know everyone is a Steen mark, rightfully so, but let's be objective. That shit was horrible. I have a bunch of people on another site mocking me because his debut was so bad and I'm a known Steen fan. It just wasn't a very strong debut. @Lockard23 can dislike my posts without having a discussion, but we all need to re-watch that segment if you really think it was worth a fuck.
  17. What was so bad about it, exactly?

    1. Owens confronts Cena and dismisses the fans, at which point Cena says that the fans are why the WWE is what it is. Owens completely no-sells it.

    2. Cena offers some "veteran advice" (like he does with pretty much every younger superstar who steps to him in a promo), which seems to touch a small nerve with Owens, who replies that he's already a veteran despite being in WWE for a hell of a lot less longer than Cena has been.

    3. Owens tells him that he has no problem fighting him but it'll be on his terms, not Cena's. He then proceeds to lay Cena out with the Pop-Up Powerbomb (and it's cool that he does this while Cena's focus is still directed completely at him, as opposed to only jumping him when he turned his back or something), and then in an awesome moment, stomps his foot on the United States Championship while raising the NXT Championship above his head, as if to say "Your title doesn't mean as much as mine does."

    Without nitpicking (and I usually have an issue with nitpicking), it was fine by me.

  18. I'm not sure if you have impossible standards or if I just adapted better for wwe standards, but regardless, I enjoyed the segment. The promo was really "prototypical heel", but I found it to be much more bearable in hindsight after fangirling over the powerbomb and him stepping on the title
  19. I didn't think it was that bad. The bit where he goes on about how the fans are the reason WWE exists was corny, but it made sense. Also, it's really not just Cena's performance that makes him so enjoyable for me atm, it's mostly the booking. The dude is making a midcard title mean something and having fresh good matches with young guys every week, it's the ideal role for Cena to have imo. His promos have been really the same stuff as usual, but it's on a different spot on the card with different guys so it's good enough for me.
