Wowsers. I don’t even know what to say, so this is gonna be a long ramble that I hope turns out somewhat coherent. There are always rumors popping up that Daniel Bryan may be inserted into a feud ever since he returned to the WWE as SmackDown Live’s GM, but there seemed to be little to no point in it since he wasn’t cleared for in-ring action. That all changed today when the WWE dropped this bombshell on us.
With rumors that AJ Styles may be injured, the timing couldn’t be any better for the WWE leading up to WrestleMania. Or was that just a work this whole time and he’ll wedge his way into another storyline? Who knows and I couldn’t really care less how it happens, I’m just excited the YES! movement is back in full effect. At first glance, it looks like we still may be getting the dream match of AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura and Daniel Bryan could be paired with Shane McMahon vs. Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Howevah- if Styles truly is hurt, we’ll get the true dream match we didn’t think was possible anymore: Daniel Bryan vs. Shinsuke Nakamura. Tonight’s SmackDown should be action packed with everyone hanging on a thread until Daniel Bryan’s path to WrestleMania is revealed. If it were me, I would’ve left his fate with the WWE doctors a mystery a little longer as a feud built, not knowing if it could be settled in the ring or not, but their hand may have been forced if they know something about AJ Styles that hasn’t been made public yet.
Follow me on Twitter and check back on the site for additional updates as they become available.
Tonight the WWE makes it’s last stop on the Road to WrestleMania 34 as the SmackDown brand takes over Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. With it being the last pay-per-view before The Show of Shows, I don’t expect too many shakeups with the major title pictures. However, that may be exactly what they want you to think (but don’t count on it, seriously). Will this finally be the night we see Carmella cash in her Money in the Bank contract that she’s been carrying around for what seems to have been 28 years? We’ll see… Continue reading →
Who didn’t expect this? Jerry Jones is not happy with Roger Goodell’s current handling of his star running back’s off the field troubles. At this point there’s not much he can do on the Zeke front as it plays out in court, but that doesn’t mean he won’t go down kicking and screaming.
You know what else is going on in the Commissioner’s office right now? A contract extension. Not so fast my friends. Continue reading →
Welcome to a Labor Day edition of RAW Recap with El Jefe. Hopefully the grill has cooled down the yard work is completed; if not I got you covered with my review and predictions of this holiday edition of Monday Night Raw.
The show kicked off with a flashback of last weeks confrontation between Roman Reigns and John Cena. Obviously with it announced that the WWE will try to limit the path crossing between Brock and Braun ahead of No Mercy the Cena/ Reigns feud will be front and center for weeks to come.
Welcome to another edition of the RAW Recap with El Jefe…Monday night was action packed from the get go and would be all about the push for the “No Mercy” Pay Per View (Sept. 24th). How would new rivalries be built and old storylines continue heading into the event coming in about 3-4 weeks?
Welcome to another edition of the RAW Recap with El Jefe where I like to offer my prediction on things to come based on a review of each weeks episode. Monday night RAW kicked off back in Brooklyn following a wild SummerSlam. With the biggest party of the summer over the “Red Brand” wasted no time on Monday setting storylines for the next pay per view event; No Mercy (September 24th). No Mercy promises to be an event full of score settling and could see the rise of new superstars.
Well folks we only have six days until the biggest party of the summer. WWE's pay per view SummerSlam is this Sundays, and it will be a joint brand show. You will have to follow @MillironMac for all the updates on Smackdown leading into this jammed packed show. The build on both sides is clear though; we may possibly see the two top titles switch hands. Tonight's installment of RAW was all about the final push to SummerSlam and it was a crazy show.
SummerSlam is just two weeks away and man do we have a lot of rivalries being built over the last couple weeks. Most of the matches are set, but several of the opponents still have to be determined. Next week marks the final week before the August 20th pay per view; so expect the RAW and Smackdown to continue building matches for the event. This will be one of the biggest events of the year outside of WrestleMania. So what storylines were made clearer for us on this edition of the RAW Recap?
Last night Jefe got the honor of recapping a Monday Night Raw in the worst city in the world.. Tonight I get to recap SmackDown in the city that ties Pittsburgh as the worst city in the world, Cleveland. It’s too bad LeBron was at home watching Jingle All The Way with his kids and crying about how nobody wants to play with him anymore, because the boys put on quite a show.
Raw kicked off Monday night with a couple disappointments for me. First off I discovered Kurt Angle was from Pittsburgh so I don’t know if I can like him anymore. Secondly they made a Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup Champs reference less then two minutes into the show. Being the consummate professional I am I will move past it and do my regularly scheduled RAW Recap. By Being the bigger man and recapping a episode of RAW hosted in ShitsPittsburgh; I expect lots of comments and likes on this post.
