Yeah yeah yeah, we all know. Wrestling is fake. I don’t watch it thinking I’m actually getting a combat sport that isn’t staged or has a predetermined outcome. It’s a television sitcom that combines sometimes decent story lines and some of the most athletically gifted human beings on the planet.
Every now and then we’re reminded that things can go wrong in the ring if someone is rusty or an opponent isn’t expecting certain moves. Tonight, Liv Morgan appeared to be knocked out cold by Brie Bella’s “Yes Kicks”. We might not know the real story anytime soon, but it looks like Brie Bella unintentionally caught Liv with a kick to the face, which stunned her, leaving her unprepared for the next kick to knock her out cold.
Las Vegas is a familiar place for a long time UFC star like Ronda Rousey. On Sunday she officially signed her WWE contract and will now enter the world of sports entertainment. She entered with the same name, same music, but the brand she is representing is different.
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?
