Welcome to a new week. Raw is on tonight, heck yeah. Here we go!
Top 10 European Matches – WWE on Youtube
Tonight, Raw is in England. In preparation, last night, the WWE dropped this video on their YouTube page. Honestly, I’m shocked a diva’s match from the last decade is on a list of any “top matches.” I love #7, long live Regal! When #5 happened, I truly believed Santino was just some guy from Italy…whoops. Shocker, John Cena is a top 10 list, but thankfully it is a loss to HBK. And lastly, #1 is the #1 of all #1. As soon as I clicked the link, I knew what #1 was. An iconic match and a reaction/crowd that soon not be repeated.

WWE is reporting that the Rock’s no show of last night’s Raw was due to a serious abdominal injury and hernia suffered during Wrestlemania’s Main Event. This is the second such reported serious injury in two years for the multi-million dollar movie star and former WWE Champion. During last year’s Cena match, Rocky tore his hamstring.
The skepticism is already out there. Whether the injury will ultimately be revealed to be true or false remains to be seen. The only ones who truly know whether it is a cover story or actual injuries are the Rock and those within WWE. However, PWInsider (via Wrestling Inc) is reporting that the injury is legitimate.

Yeah. This delivered.
RUMORS RUMORS RUMORS!!!
The chickens are CLUCKING in the hen house fellas.
Let’s get started:
FIRST – Wrestlemania 29 was pretty damn good. It shattered records and did amazing business. It was a good show and certainly delivered. I understand many people feel it was not the best Wrestlemania ever. I’ll take that though. A mediocre Wrestlemania (which in my opinion this certainly was not) is still FAR superior than to whatever else dull (Walking) bore (Dead) show you could have watched on a Sunday night. Definitely worth my $60.
Second – and NEWWWWWWWW Champion – Jereeehhhhhhhrrrrnnnnnnnnnnn CeeeeeeeeenHAAAAAAAA. Yes yes, “the champ” is certainly “here.” Welcome back as well. He earned it, being the top worker/face/heel/dreamboat. Let’s start the rumor mill a churning though.
It seems that as the dust was settling tonight in New Jersey, John and Rock would part ways amicably – but to match last years run in, Brock Lesnar would take umbrage and this time, he would F5 the Rock. POSSIBLY setting up a future angle. Here’s the problem; Dwayne left. Like, hopped a plane and stone cold two finger salute left. So uh, what now? Dunno. I guess we’ll see.
Third – we all saw that the Tons of Funk/Rhodes Scholars + Divas match got nixed due to time constraints. I kind of understand that they wanted to give the marquis matches ample time – BUT they did run 4 lengthy video packages trying to hype the main event and such. RUMOR is the match will spill over to tonight. Hopefully they get their time and a little extra spotlight, those involved in this match are solid mid-card guys.
Fourth – CM Punk MIGHT have actually injured himself in that spot pictured above. It was truly amazing, and I cannot believe the SPANISH ANNOUNE TABLE DIDN’T break!! I mean, after all these years of crashing through the Spanish broadcast team and ruining their night the press-board table actually held under this bomb?! Incredible. Well, it may have made for a rough landing for Punk who is rumored to have injured his knee, but STILL pushed through the match at the same intensity. This guy is a 10. I will buy all the ice cream bars with his mug on it.
Anything can happen at Wrestlemania; and even more can happen the day after. It’s a good day to be a
The build to this match is actually getting very exciting. It seems people are really irked about the whole disgracing of the symbol that is the Urn. Is it stealing the spotlight away from the main event? Well, yeah – kind of.
We are going into the LAST RAW BEFORE WRESTLEMANIA 29, and this should arguably be the biggest broadcast of the year! This is when all tensions boil over and if any tricks have been saved – they will be played…tonight!
Let’s see what we have:
- Team Hell No vs Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston
What kind of a factor will AJ Lee be in this match? Will Kaitlyn be at ringside?
- Alberto Del Rio vs Jack Swagger
These two keep brawling over every show. It’s about time to find out who can back up their big mouthed counterpart. Oh – don’t forget; Dolph STILL has the Money in the Bank briefcase. I believe the stipulation is the winner has until the following Wrestlemania to cash in. Not much has been made of this on television. Plot thickens. Continue reading →

Dwayne Johnson has been on a whirlwind media tour as of late. I’m sure you’ve noticed his absence from the majority of RAW and Smackdown episodes. He’s got a lot on his plate, and last night was no exception. The Rock appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote movies, Wrestlemania 29, and his general bad-ass-ness, as seen in the above picture.
