The introduction.
The match.

He's wrestled on Raw before, albeit against other NXT guys.

Match with Cena was super sloppy. Botching the fake out suicide dive and the AA counter. Still cool to see him.

Also, was it just me, or was the lad from Two Best Friends Play on the hard camera for most of Raw?

He was probably nervous. Interesting to see the company giving him a real opportunity here though.

He was crying and hugging his shoulder afterwards though, think he hurt himself.

Anyway, loving this Rollins title reign. Hope Orton goes away soon.

I just took it as them giving him an injury to sell so the loss wasn't clean. Don't think it was legitimate.

He was faking the injury and did a good job.

Triple HHH returned tonight, but didn't do that much. If Seth loses the title, Kane loses his job.

Actually went to last night's episode of Raw since it was in downtown Cincinnati. Very entertaining episode of the show to see live. The John Cena match U.S. Open Challenge with Adrian Neville was amazing and I loved how the finish implied that Neville would have beaten Cena clean if Rusev hadn't interfered. Daniel Bryan giving up his Intercontinental belt was heartbreaking and I'm still wondering if I just watched him retire right in front of me. I also dug the New Day getting over as pretty hated heels with a lot of "New Day Sucks" chants going on.

It was also fun to see Dean Ambrose, who is from Cincy, get a hero's welcome as he was getting CM Punk level chants all night long. When he ended the show by hitting Dirty Deeds on Roman Reigns and being the last man standing, the place went nuts.

All and all, very cool show and I'm glad I went to it.

Here's a crapy photo of the view from my seat.

I've never been to a WWE event (part of it because they rarely come to my country) but i always thought that the view would be much different that in your picture, wrestlers so far away that you could barely see who was who and who was doing what to what, people blocking your view constantly with signs and all that.
Were you in a seated row or were you in one of those where you have to be standing all the time?

I've been to two events. One where I was in mid level seats and the other time was nearly nosebleed. Despite that though, I could see all the action just fine and it was a great show both times.

Every time I have been to a wrestling show I was always able to see well from my seat. Only standing up when Hulk Hogan or a favorite wrestler was about.

Seated row near the front of my section. Was the cheapest seat I could buy and I was still incredibly close to the action. I'm guessing the only real "nosebleed" seats one could get for a wrestling event would be the cheap ones in a huge arena for an event like Wrestlemania...

So is Adam Rose officially split from his "Rosebuds" or?
Like seriously, if they want him to be a heel they might as well have had him be Leo Kruger.

I am counting down until Seth loses his belt and classic Kane returns. He better bring bask the mask.

Looks like it'll be a good week for WWE.

Payback, despite being a totally throwaway show, has a pretty solid card.

Mizdow and Axel vs The Ascension should be goofy fun. Perfect preshow match.

Cena vs Rusev probably won't be up to much, but at least this feud will be over after it.

The fatal fourway should be entertaining in a clusterfuck sort of way. Feels like a filler programme and will be amazed if Rollins doesn't walk out champ.

Barrett and Neville have had good matches already and will do so again.

Likewise for Ziggler and Sheamus.

The New Day vs Kidd and Cesaro has the potential to be match of the night. New Day are all really talented in the ring, and they're absolutely detestable and are making for great heels. Cesaro and Kidd are two of the best wrestlers in the company, so this should be excellent.

Ryback and Bray Wyatt will be fun. Love the Big Guy, and I think he'll work well with Bray.

Diva's tag match will be a piss break, obviously.

Then you've got the REAL show of the week, NXT Takeover: Unstoppable.

Owens vs Zayn will hopefully finally be the match I was hoping for the first time. I didn't feel robbed when they went with the more storyline heavy stuff, with the head bump and the beatdown that followed, but I'm still itching for these two to have a proper match. Potential classic, and I've no idea who goes over. Owens if I had to bet.

Sasha Banks vs Becky Lynch will be great. Banks is phenomenal, and Lynch is really good too.

Blake and Murphy vs Enzo and Cass had better not break my heart. I need Enzo and Cass to have those belts, and I have faith that NXT is intelligent enough of a show that this obviously telegraphed Carmella betrayal won't happen, and in the end she'll have her boys' backs to give them the win.

Balor vs Itami vs Breeze is going to be a thing of beauty, and I'm pulling for Breeze all the way. Fucking love the guy. Best chance we've had of seeing a GTS for a while, but I still think they'll hold it off for big singles matches since he hadn't used it since debuting it on TV a few weeks back.

Baron Corbin vs Rhyno will probably be the weakest match on the card, but will also probably be short. Based on last week the NXT crowd are finally sick of Corbin, with good reason. Can't see it going down well.

Bayley and Charlotte vs Emma and Dana Brooke will probably be good too, although Brooke is the wildcard here as we've not see much of her yet, so it's hard to say if she'll be able to keep up with the other 3 who've all proven themselves in big matches in the past.

So yeah, looking forward to it. Got the week off work so will be able to watch both live for a change. Pretty hyped.

I dunno, I personally am really disappointed to see Axel and Sandow reduced to a shallow impersonation gimmick. When Sandow first started coming out as a heel dressed in stupid costumes it was funny cause he was basically trolling the audience whether it was coming out as Lebron James in Indiana or coming out to Vince's music and getting a big pop.

Now it's supposed to be a face gimmick somehow but it doesn't have anywhere near the kind of effect that made it over in the first place. It's just not funny anymore and it's more 'glory days' wankery. I feel like Sandow may not actually be able to pull off a face run on his own merit since he just seems too boring when he isn't a smug heel. The same goes for Axel who did an admirable job turning a jobber performance at the RR into something but now it's a shadow of what it started as.

Sad really.

The New Day vs Kidd and Cesaro has the potential to be match of the night. New Day are all really talented in the ring, and they're absolutely detestable and are making for great heels. Cesaro and Kidd are two of the best wrestlers in the company, so this should be excellent.

I love heels like the New Day and since Miz hasn't been on TV for a while they've been doing a good job of filling that role. I hope they get to keep doing this for a while because the Tag division is sorely lacking in strong heels that make sense as a tag team like New Day does. Cesaro and Kidd were always just two really good singles competitors for good in ring chemistry but they weren't really 'bad guys' and it's time they break into singles competition again.

New Day should have great matches with the Lucha Dragons and the Usos when they come back

Ryback and Bray Wyatt will be fun. Love the Big Guy, and I think he'll work well with Bray.

I really like both guys and I feel bad that Ryback is gonna have to take another bump down the ladder for Wyatt but Wyatt really needs it. I'd like to see someone like Randy Orton or Kane take these kind of matches but Ryback and Wyatt will at least be a good match hopefully.

I wouldn't worry about it. If anything it seems like they're setting Carmella up for a face run of her own and it would make sense to have everyone in that group be face while they have the belts. If she betrayed them it'd be a pretty good swerve I guess but it wouldn't make a lot of sense in the long run I don't think and the people behind NXT seem to have a bit more sense than that.

The Cena and Rusev match was pretty entertaining, too bad they had to make Rusev look more like a coward by having him hide at one point, the ending was totally retarded, you can't lose if you're passed out but you can if someone else quits for you? What kind of bullshit is that?

The main event was so amazing, when they tripled powerbombed Orton through the table and Seth had his arms around Reigns and Dean i kept thinking they were back together and a lot of the people in the crowd seemed to think so as well, boy how wrong we were. The rest of the match was also pretty damn amazing, the only downside is that the Pedigree was botched.

Did anyone else catch Reigns flipping off Noble after he threw him against the barricade near the end?

Yes, I laughed when I saw that. We will see if it is mentioned tonight on RAW.

Looks like TNA is cancelled again. Samoa Joe got out in time and is facing Owens in NXT.


Well we were dumb enough to think it was gonna happen.

TNA denies it, Destination America hasn't announced it. So I'm taking the wait and see approach.

Great week of wrestling this past one was. If you have Network, and didn't see them, I recommend Payback (Minus the Cena/Rusev match) and NXT Takeover (nothing bad on that show, when all I can say in the negative is that something was merely "good" that's a damn good thing for this old fan).

Come back TNA. It may not be the best, but WWE always needs competition. If not, they will be lazy and make an inferior product.

I wouldn't call it competition, i'd call it WWE's retirement home.

So Mark Henry is gonna be replacing Rusev in the Elimination Champer Intercontinental championship match, might be just because i haven't seen him in a while but he looks thinner.
