More details on Bram's arrest on domestic battery by strangulation and false imprisonment charges

Thomas Latimer, who wrestles for TNA as Bram, was arrested around 6:00 a.m. ET on Monday morning in Gulfport, Florida on charges of domestic battery by strangulation and false imprisonment. The Tampa Tribune reports that police state that Latimer was arguing with a woman (believed to be his girlfriend) when she went to her bedroom.
Latimer allegedly followed her and closed the door and refused to let her leave. The story also states that he allegedly pushed the woman onto the bed and held her down by her neck. The story also notes that Latimer "was being held in the Pinella County Jail without bond." Read the full story at

Opinionated View- To make clear the woman is not Charlotte aka Ashley Fleihr. From what I can tell she and Latimer/Bram's marriage is over and they are actually finalizing a divorce. This sounds very bad and if he did it I think TNA would be wise to fire him and I think suspending him is the right call. That said we need to let the legal process play out.

Man reportedly shot at the WWE Performance Center

A man was shot on Monday at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, according to a report by

Opinionated View- I'm not trying to make light of any situation but first Bram, than Rollins gf and now this heavy day.

Seth Rollins' girlfriend fired by WWE over pro-Nazi artwork

WWE has released developmental wrestler Zahra Schreiber "due to inappropriate and offensive remarks." TMZ reports that her firing was due to pro-Nazi artwork posted on her Instagram account in 2012. The photos included a "My Little Pony" character dressed as Adolph Hitler. You can see the image at

Opinionated View- I believe this might be the girl that once release nude photos of Rollins when she thought he cheated her on. Now I believe this started when someone unearthed some what she calls "Cool" Photos of WWII images. She claimed she was a history buff but people kept "attacking" her for calling it cool and she than put out Hitler Pony and well now she's fired.

Latimer is currently married to WWE Diva Ashley "Charlotte" Fliehr, but there is no word at this time on if these charges are in any correlation to her.

Opinionated View- Well this isn't good. I think TNA is doing the right thing but you just got let the legal process play out.

PWG Battle of LA Night 3 Report

Excalibur began the show in a sling still selling the beating be received last night from Mount Rushmore 2.0. Excalibur said he left the emergency room at 7:30am last night. He said he has a grade 2 AC shoulder separation and a potential fracture of his cervical spine. He began to get emotional and the fans applauded him.
He thanked everyone for coming. He then ran through his standard speech about not filming, shark week, and recycling.
1. Jack Evans defeated Brian Cage in a Battle of Los Angeles 2nd Round match. Jack Evans began the match with a promo about how he'd win BOLA and a lack of professionalism in PWG. It was long. Cage eventually had enough and attacked Evans. Evans was basically killed by Cage for the entirety of the match until he rolled Cage up. Fun match. Cage attacked Evans after the match.
2. Chris Hero defeated Biff Busik in a Battle of Los Angeles 2nd Round match. This match started fast and never really quit. Busik and Hero traded stiff shots and some great grappling. Hero pinned Busik after a second rope Piledriver.
3. "Party" Marty Scrull defeated Trevor Lee in a Battle of Los Angeles 2nd Round match. Lee losing was a major shock to the crowd. Scrull won the back and forth pretty good match with a Tornado DDT into his Crossface Chickenwing. This was a major surprise.
4. Zack Sabre Jr. defeated Pentagon Jr. in a Battle of Los Angeles 2nd Round match. The crowd went insane as both men entered. The atmosphere for this match was amazing. They had the technical match one would expect with good highspots. LA loves both of these guys. Sabre won after reversing a Package Piledriver attempt into a Kimura-ish submission and forcing Pentagon to tap. Amazing.
5. "Speedball" Mike Bailey defeated Tommy End in a Battle of Los Angeles 2nd Round match. Once again, the story was Speedball not dying against a bigger opponent and once again it worked. The fans rallied behind Bailey for the entire match, as action spilled outside and various very skilled kicks were thrown. Bailey won with his Shooting Star Double Knee followed by a big Roundhouse Kick to End. Great match.
6. Will Ospreay defeated "Rebourne" Matt Sydal in a Battle of Los Angeles 2nd Round match. This was another very good story from a match with Bourne. Both guys felt each other out, then got to the flips and moves and things. Ospreay won with his inverted 450 splash thing. Really good match to conclude the second round of BOLA.
Roderick Strong, Super Dragon, and The Young Bucks came out before any matches could begin. Roddy said no one in the back will come out and face them. Fenix answered the challenge alone, but then Angélico, helped as well. Ricochet and Rich Swann joined the fray as a 4 on 4 match broke out.
7. The Young Bucks, Roderick Strong, and Super Dragon defeated Angélico, Fenix, Ricochet, and Rich Swann. This was another crazy multi-man match and it did well to break up the slight singles match monotony with action. Super Dragon appeared to get injured mid-match and limp to the back.
8. Chris Hero defeated Jack Evans in a Battle of Los Angeles semi-final match. Jack Evans began this match with a promo again. It involved wanting royalties from Highspots (imagine if WWE wrestlers asked for Network royalties). Chris Hero took a nap during the promo. Evans promised Hero couldn't even hold him down for a 2 count. The match was all about Hero dominating Evans and Evans dramatically kicking out at 1. Hero eventually got a 2 count. He then got a 3 count after a Piledriver and a Rainmaker-esque Elbow.
9. "Speedball" Mike Bailey defeated Will Ospreay in a Battle of Los Angeles semi-final match. Ospreay worked a more aggressive match than he had previously in the tournament. This was pretty fun. They eventually broke into the high flying goodness and it was great. A small critique would be the lack of leg work from Bailey when Ospreay was limping and selling the leg all match. Bailey won with his Roundhouse Kick to the face of Ospreay.
10. Zack Sabre Jr. defeated "Party" Marty Scrull in a Battle of Los Angeles semi-final match. This was a fun comedy match that, especially on a show going on 5 hours after its scheduled start time, went a little too long. The fun World of Sport-esque spots were cool, but it needed 10 minutes, not 30. Sabre got the win with an Armbar. This might have worked earlier in the night or the weekend, but it didn't here.
11. Drew Gulak, Trent?, Drew Galloway, Aero Star, and Chuck Taylor defeated Timothy Thatcher, Andrew Everett, Drago, Mark Andrews, and Tomasso Ciampa. Taylor declared his team the "Five Man Band" which was fun. The entrances for this match were built around surprise wrestling appearances from Ciampa and Taylor. The fans are them up. The match featured a ton of comedy, but in the right way. It was paced well. The crowd was quite into it. We got some great dives, including one from Drew Galloway. There was an extended segment of low blows. There was a truly amazing slow motion segment of the match with the whole audience in slow motion for about five minutes. Great fun.
12. Zack Sabre Jr. defeated "Speedball" Mike Bailey and Chris Hero in the 2015 Battle of Los Angeles final match. This is an elimination match. They began with some grappling, because wrestling. They eventually moved into the non-exclusively grappling portion. Hero became the first guy to kick out of Speedball's big Roundhouse Kick in the tournament.
"Speedball" Bailey was eliminated via three consecutive Piledrivers from Chris Hero.
Chris Hero was eliminated when Zack Sabre Jr. locked in a crazy Armbar (like he does). This wasn't the most dramatic match, but it got the job done.
After the match, Sabre was presented with his trophy. Roderick Strong came out, looking to attack Sabre, but didn't. They had a brief confrontation where Strong promised to beat up Sabre when he returns.
Sabre promised to take extra care of the trophy, so he could show it to the queen. Sabre said it was mental to come to LA and wrestle in a place like this. He promised to come back, win the PWG title, and move to California.

WWE Annouces Divas Beat The Block For Raw

WWE has announced that there will be a Beat The Clock Challenge on Monday's Raw. Paige, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch will compete in the the matches and the woman with the best time will be named No. 1 contender to the Divas Championship.

Opinionated View= Well this had already been reported PCB are talented the problem is you know they are going to be facing the Fellas or Fox or Namoi so it's not like they are going to get much of a chance to really show off.

PWG Battle of LA Night 2 Report

Christian Cole (I think that's his name) is the guest ring announcer for the evening. Excalibur gave his opening speech, including not video recording, shark week, and recycling!
1. "Party" Marty Scurll defeated Rich Swann in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. Marty is risking his life by entering in a fur coat in a 100° room. Marty won the super high energy match with his Crossface Chicken Wing. The Progress Wrestling contingent is really impressing folks this weekend.
2. Jack Evans defeated Angélico in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. Jack Evans began the match with a great promo. Jack's promo continued through the match, where he stole and wrote in Meltzer's notepad, chugged a beer, and went on a drunken wrestling rampage. Evans is a professional. The second half of this match didn't quite build perfectly, but it was fun. Jack Evans won with a Crane Kick.
3. Chris Hero defeated Timothy Thatcher in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. This match was pretty close to their WrestleMania weekend classic I also saw in person. More than moves and craziness, these guys know how to build drama in an amazing way. Chris Hero won this great contest after hitting a CrossRhodes-esque maneuver on Thatcher. Amazing effort all around. You MUST see this match.
4. Aero Star & Fénix defeated Drago & Pentaón Jr. This was an unreal Lucha-style tag. Just stunning. Standing ovations all the way through the match. Wow.
5. Tommy End defeated Drew Gulak in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. This was a good, but odd match. The fans didn't get super into it after intermission and the exhausting tag before it. Once they were hooked, they were hooked. End took a couple rough looking bumps, but ultimately win with a big Elbow/Forearm to Gulak's head.
6. "Speedball" Mike Bailey defeated Drew Galloway in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. This match was all about the physical difference between the short sub-200 lb. Speedball and the very tall and ripped Galloway. They had a truly great match and told a simple story. Speedball won't die. Galloway is crazy gifted and talented. Speedball rolled Drew up after Drew attempted his Double Arm DDT. Damn. That was good.
7. Zack Sabre Jr. defeated Ricochet in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. This wasn't a standard Ricochet match, as Sabre gave Ricochet more of a technical feel. It built slowly, but wonderfully. Finally, Sabre managed to pin Ricochet after a series of excellent reversals. Good stuff.
8. Super Dragon & The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) defeated Biff Busick, Andrew Everett, & Trevor Lee in a Six Person Tag Team Guerrilla Warfare Match. Busik was pinned by Nick Jackson and Super Dragon after an insane combination of moves and an insane match. This was insanity and it lived up to the Guerrilla Warfare name. Absolutely nuts.
Excalibur thanked everyone for coming tonight after the main event. He said this is not over. He doesn't care who or what it takes, but this is it. The crowd chanted for one more match for Excalibur. Excalibur said he didn't need one more match. He said they have a whole locker room full of men. He will not rest until he sees Mount Rushmore 2.0 put in the ground.
Excalibur was attacked by The Bucks and Dragon. Chris Hero rushed the ring and ran them off. Hero was eventually attacked after trying to confront the worst fan in wrestling history. Hero and Excalibur were laid out. PWG is a land in need of a savior of some sort.

– According to, a Beat the Clock Challenge with Paige, Becky Lynch and Charlotte all competing has been added to Monday’s Raw. The woman who beats their opponent in the shortest amount of time will earn a title shot at Diva’s Champion Nikki Bella.

Opinoinated View- Well Until WWE announces it and well sometimes even after they do nothing is official. Could this be a sign they Diva Revolution will be more the lip service. Problem is odds are they wind up facing a Bella, Alicia Fox, and Naomi meaning the matches will suck be the usual Diva fare.

Cliff Compton Misses ROH Show

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla - Battle of Los Angeles (Night One)
Reseda, California at The American Legion Hall
Melissa Santos is our official ring announcer. Excalibur is out to give his standard speech in an amazing Ted DiBiase Wrestling Buddy shirt.
Chuck Taylor wandered through the crowd midway through the speech. He'll be on commentary tonight.
1. Brian Cage defeated Aero Star in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. This was not the prettiest match to open the night. Aero Star flew. Cage was powerful. They didn't seem to be on the same page. Cage won via pinfall in a short match.
2. Biff Busick defeated Andrew Everett in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. This is far closer to what I expected to see here. Busick and Everett tore it up with a fun match featuring fun near falls, a little flying, and some stiff strikes. Biff won with a T-Bone Suplex, followed by a big clothesline on the floor. Very fun match.
3. Will Ospreay defeated Mark Andrews in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. This was tremendous. It's great to see this British standouts in the United States. The crowd loved this. Ospreay won a great match with some sort of reverse shooting star awesomeness I should know the proper name of.
4. Angélico & Jack Evans defeated Inner City Machine Guns (Rich Swann & Ricochet). This was some high-flying goodness. Dives, flips, and all the twirly kicks occurred. Evans pinned Swann to close it out.
5. Trevor Lee defeated Trent? in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. This was good, but not blow-away good. Lee won the match with a Fisherman Buster of some sort.
Chuck Taylor and Trent? hugged after the match in a beautiful Best Friends reunion.
6. Pentagón Jr. defeated Drago in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. My goodness was it great to watch Pentagon Jr. and Drago again. This was super fun Lucha goodness. Pentagon won with the Package Piledriver and is almost as over in LA as the last guy who used that move.
7. "Rebourne" Matt Sydal defeated Fénix in a Battle of Los Angeles First Round Match. This was main-event worthy and truly awesome. It was dramatic and action packed. Just excellent. Sydal won with his amazing Shooting Star Press. Must see match.
8. Roderick Strong & The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) defeated Tommy End, Zack Sabre, Jr., & "Party" Marty Scurll. This match was absolutely insane. Sabre Jr. and Strong had some fantastic exchanges. The Bucks were on their A-game. Heck, we ever saw a Double Meltzer Driver. The Brits were awesome in this. Man, what a main event. The finish saw Sabre Jr., who had been assaulted multiple times with kicks and chairs and things get pinned after a major Backbreaker from Strong. Great great match

He talks about how a statue of his likeness was created in his honor was set to be unveiled in front of the entire WWE Universe. Rollins said the statue was going to move him into immortality. He reminds everyone that he was the first man to cash in the "Money in the Bank" briefcase at WrestleMania and walk out the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and also the first to carry both the WWE World Heavyweight and United States championships at the same time.

Divas Raw Segment Didn’t Go as Planned

According to the WON, the MizTV segment on Raw featuring the Divas turned out differently than what was planned. The site reports that Team PCB was supposed to tease some dissension, with all the members supposed to make their case at a title shot against Nikki Bella to hint that their team may be short-lived.

Opinionated View- Well you always gotta be careful with any report. Because why the hell would you already be teasing a break up when they just got together. Of course I could see WWE breaking up the one diva team I like.

Is Randy Orton Looking For A Lighter Schedule?

During his recent WOOOOO! Nation podcast, Ric Flair said that Randy Orton may be looking for a lighter or reduced WWE schedule in the near future. He said it would be similar to the schedule that Shawn Michaels had before he retired. HBK would work a certain number of shows before taking time off. The Wrestling Observer (via Wrestlezone) reports that Orton has been given several weekends off this year already. He is likely financially secure to the point that he doesn’t need to be on the road as much anymore.

Jushin Liger To Work More WWE Dates

Jushin Liger’s WWE run didn’t end at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn. According to the WON, a wrestling promoter tried to book Liger for upcoming shows in the US but was told that WWE had already booked him for the dates.

It is believed that Liger may have a deal similar to Samoa Joe’s where he is still able to work for other promotions, including NJPW, while working for WWE.

Opinionated View- He's 50 years old and no matter how much the IWC want to deny it he's slowed down greatly.

Jarrett low blows Galloway and says, “Sometimes a man’s got to do, what a man’s got to do” as the GFW roster floods the ring against Galloway. The Impact roster tries to even the odds, but the show goes off the air with the Impact Wrestling roster fallen and Dixie Carter looking on in disbelief.

Wale to Start New Wrestling Promotion?

ROH/Sinclair Back on Dish

Dish Network has announced that they’ve reached a carriage agreement with Sinclair Broadcast Group which will restore the 129 local TV stations that were blacked out late last night. In a statement today, Dish said that FCC chairman Tom Wheeler’s comments helped bring both sides to a deal. Wheeler had ordered an emergency meeting between the two sides to work out the dispout.
“We are grateful for the FCC’s work on behalf of consumers to actively broker a productive path forward,” said Dish executive Jeff Blum.”
“We will not stand idly by while millions of consumers in 79 markets across the country are being denied access to local programming,” Wheeler had said in public comments. “The Commission will always act within the scope of its authority if it emerges that improper conduct is preventing a commercial resolution of the dispute.”

Sinclair Broadcasting Plays Hardball – Now Blacked Out on 129 DISH Stations

UPDATE: Following the news that five million subscribers over 129 stations lost their Sinclair affiliate, Variety now reports that FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has directed the agency’s Media Bureau to arrange an emergency meeting with Dish and Sinclair. The companies will have until midnight ET Wednesday to file their views on the dispute. Here is what he had to say about the situation…
“The public interest is the Commission’s responsibility. We will not stand idly by while millions of consumers in 79 markets across the country are being denied access to local programming. The Commission will always act within the scope of its authority if it emerges that improper conduct is preventing a commercial resolution of the dispute.”
ORIGINAL: While they had recently agreed to an extension to further negotiations, Sinclair stations are now off of DISH Network. DISH claims that this was a choice made by Sinclair. What this means is that 129 local channels in 79 markets across 36 states no longer have access to the network, which to wrestling fans means that those 129 channels are dark and not airing ROH TV. Here is a portion of the statement sent out by DISH, explaining their side of the story…
Despite reaching an agreement on rates and all other terms for the carriage of the Sinclair local stations, DISH said that this afternoon Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. chose to begin the largest local channel blackout in the history of television, blocking DISH customers’ access to 129 local channels in 79 markets across 36 states and the District of Columbia, and intentionally harming and exploiting millions of innocent consumers to gain negotiating leverage for carriage of an unrelated cable channel that it hopes to acquire but does not own today.
“We have agreed to rates and all terms to carry Sinclair’s local stations. We have agreed to rates and all terms to carry Sinclair’s local stations,” said Warren Schlichting, DISH senior vice president of programming. “But Sinclair is blacking out 129 local stations in an effort to negotiate a carriage agreement for an unrelated cable channel that it hopes to acquire, but does not own today.” Schlichting continued: “Sinclair rejected our extension offer and has chosen to use innocent consumers as pawns to gain leverage for the economic benefit of Sinclair, while causing substantial harm and disruption to the lives of consumers.”

* Tag Team Title Match: Champions The Wolves vs. The Revolution
* Knockouts Title Match: Champion Brooke vs. Velvet Sky
* X-Division Title Match: Champion Tigre Uno vs. DJZ and Sonjay Dutt

Opinionated View- Good looking card. EY has gotten some good stuff out of Melendez it will be interesting to see how this goes down. Great talent in the 4 way and really any of the 4 should have a good match with Black. Tag title match is should be good hell it will beat anything WWE tries. Knockouts always good to see Velvet back in the ring. 3 way should be good as well. Plus we keep the TNA and GFW matches going

Non-Spoiler Match Listing For Tonight’s NXT

* Mark & Jay Briscoe vs. Grey Wolf and Red Scorpion
* Donovan Dijak w/Truth Martini and J Diesel vs. Roderick Strong
* ROH Tag Team Title Match: Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole vs. Champions Frankie Kazarian and Christopher Daniels w/Chris Sabin

Opinionated View- Pretty junk card. Briscoes are back together taking on a clear jobber team. Dijak has great potential but ever since winning Top Prospect he's been booked so poorly and now he's facing the long time and defending Boring Champion of the world.

Main event could be good but ROH rushed the Future Shock reunion and the Addiction heel run has been poor.

When Was Sting vs. Seth Rollins at Night of Champions Set?

PWInsider reports that WWE officials finalized the idea of Sting vs. Seth Rollins for Night of Champions just a few days before SummerSlam. The site reports that the idea was first suggested about a week ago, and were brought up since the original plans to use Sting at SummerSlam weren’t utilized.

The report adds that Sting was inside the statue box backstage for the final segment of Raw and that it was brought out on a forklift during a commercial break. As such, Sting didn’t come up through the bottom of the ring the way they’ve brought people in at other times.

Opinionated View- This is a joke! Again your not getting Sting at his peak you getting a way past his prime Sting. Even worse Rollins has no heat.

Details On Braun Strowman’s Debut

Braun Strowman was originally scheduled to be one of the participants in the Summerslam tag match between Dean Ambrose/Roman Reigns vs Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt. It’s unknown when the plans were changed but obviously he didn’t show up until last night’s rematch on RAW. With Strowman in the Wyatt Family now, it’s also unknown what the plans are for Erick Rowan when he returns from injury.

Details On Plans For Seth Rollins To Hold Two Titles In WWE

Sting vs. Seth Rollins is set for Night of Champions and will be for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. There is currently some confusion about what will happen with the United States Championship. Vince McMahon has not signed off on Rollins defending the US title yet, even if it was previously reported that Rollins would wrestle twice to defend both belts.

Opinoinated View- You know WWE is getting desperate if they are thinking of trying ROH's crappy booking!

Update On Reports About John Cena Affecting Divas Revolution Plans

As previously reported, sources in WWE say John Cena went to WWE officials and had plans changed which called for Charlotte to debut on the main roster and beat Nikki Bella for the Divas title. Dave Meltzer has said during Wrestling Observer Radio that he didn’t hear of the plan for Charlotte to win the title but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t happen. He said Cena’s relationship with Nikki is a big reason why she’s had such a long Divas title run. Cena has spoken up in the past when it was planned for Bella to lose the title, but Meltzer couldn’t confirm if that’s happened recently.

Opinionated View- This sounds more like Dave was looking for more clicks. But this doesn't shock me. Cena is very much a power guy backstage. But given how the WWE books I don't think it takes much convincing to keep the belt on Nikki given what is clearly the priority in the Divas division.

Update On Who Booked Summerslam Main Event, Undertaker Return Date

It was originally believed that Paul Heyman may have been part of the booking for Summerslam, due to the MMA feel. However, The Wrestling Observer (via Wrestlezone) said that Heyman was not behind the finish, but it was instead borrowed from another finish. The original plan was changed to what happened on Sunday but Heyman didn’t give the idea.
– The Undertaker is not expected to return to WWE TV until it’s time to build to Wrestlemania 32.
– Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to return to any more WWE events until the “Return to MSG” WWE Network special on October 3.

Opinionated View- I assume even Heyman knows that finish was total crap so of course he doesn't want credit.

More Details on The Dudley Boyz WWE Return and Schedule Going Forward

Here are the latest details on the return of the Dudley Boyz to the WWE. The team is back full time with WWE, and they will be working TV and live events going forward. It hasn’t been confirmed at this time, but the speculation is that the team has signed a multi-year deal with WWE.
As for their return last night, they were hidden from everyone at Raw until right before they made their return. Only the top officials knew that they would be returning, and the team already has merchandise available.

Opinionated View- Well I just posted on this. But full time? Can there bodies hold up? And even if they do your talking about a team that honestly the best thing they did was break up and finally end the team. WWE has so many legends running around having them around won't feel special. And they other factors WWE books the tag titles awful and there are so many bad teams in WWE right now like New Day or PTP.
So someone posted if the Dudley's had returned to ‪#‎TNA‬ and not ‪#‎WWE‬ I would be marking out instead of bashing it. Except this guy ignores returning to TNA would different on a number of levels
1 Tag Team Wrestling means more in TNA
2 Better tag teams in TNA
3 In TNA the Dudley's outside of Angle would be the resident legends while WWE has so many legends are there is nothing special...
4 I wouldn't be making out for it. I was fine with last years little nostalgia run but am glade they aren't still around or went over the Wolves

Dudley Boyz Set for WWE Smackdown

WWE has announced the return of The Dudley Boyz to Smackdown as a segment for this week's show airing 8/27 on Syfy. This will be taped on Tuesday in Providence, Rhode Island.

Opinionated View- Yawn. Enough with the legends already WWE just boring at this point.

Sting vs. Seth Rollins Set For Night of Champions

WWE has confirmed late Monday night that Seth Rollins will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Sting at Night of Champions on 9/20 in Houston, Texas.

Opinionated View- Last thing Rollins needs is to work with Sting. Again people I am Sting but I'm a realist. Sting is over 50 he was clearly being carried at the end of his TNA run. The match with Triple H was bad. Plus Rollins has no heat of his own and now he's going to have to carry Sting.

Monday, August 24, 2015

Last thing Rollins needs is to feud with Sting. The guy has no heat to being with. People need to remember this isn't 1990 Sting or 1997 Sting. Hell it's not even 2011 Sting.
And I love Sting he was my hero as a kid. But its 2015 and I'm sick of guys I grew up with still be all over ‪#‎WWE‬ ‪#‎Raw

WWE Raw Report

RAW opens with video from earlier today with WWE COO Triple H and WWE & US Champion Seth Rollins at WWE Headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. Triple H says Rollins is no longer the future, after last night, he is the man. Triple H says as promised, Rollins will get his statue alongside such WWE legends like Bruno Sammartino and the Ultimate Warrior. Rollins thanks Triple H and they embrace.
We see the usual intro, then commentary welcomes us to the show and runs down what happened last night at Summerslam.
Brock Lesnar's music hits as he & Paul Heyman make their way to the ring.
"Suplex City" chants by the crowd as Heyman has a mic. Heyman introduces himself as always, then says he is the pissed off advocate of the ripped off conqueror, the "Beast of the Barclays", BROCKKKKKK LESNARRRRRRRRRR!! So, what the hell happened here last night? Crowd boos. How did we go from Brock Lesnar forcing the Undertaker for the first time in his 25-year career to tap out, to a scenario that will inaccurately describe the Undertaker, afer all these years, getting a victory over my client, Brock Lesnar. It is an undisuptable fact that last night, Brock Lesnar took the Undertaker to Suplex City. It is an indisuptable fact that last night, Brock Lesnar locked the Phenom in a Kimura and please pay attention to this shocking piece of footage, because it is an indisputable fact that last night, Brock Lesnar forced the Undertaker tap out. We see video of the tapout. Heyman says how uncomfortable it must be for this fairy tale to end, I am a father, I understand. This whole belief that the Undertaker is immortal, or dead, or whatever nonsense he wants to spew out, but above all else, he tapped out to Brock Lesnar. You know what it means to tap out? It means, Brock Lesnar, you are the better wrestler, the best fighter, the better man. Its like a little kid in the fetal position in the schoolyard after getting beat up saying, "please leave me alone." Heyman says Lesnar is not blaming the referee, who didn't see the tap, nor the timekeeper, who had compassion for the Undertaker because when he was tapping, he knew Lesnar would break his arm, rip in off and beat him over the head with it. Can we bring up the fact that the Undertaker collapsed again before getting backstage, I mean, its all over the internet. Hey, I got enough material to be out here for all 3 hours of RAW! "YES" chant by the crowd. Imagine saying that the Undertaker needed to be saved, but that's what happened and then what does the Undertaker do? He goes for the desparate low blow, he locked Lesnar in Hell's Gate and because he needs to hear Lesnar give up, he yells at him to tap out. And what was Lesnar's response? To flip off the Undertaker. I get it, Undertaker, you're the last gunslinger, but you can't shoot with Brock Lesnar. So you're right, we're not out here to flap our gums, we're out here because Brock Lesnar wants to fight the Undertaker one more time! I'm not here to issue a challenge for Wrestlemania or Survivor Series or Royal Rumble or MSG or Night of Champions, Brock Lesnar challenges the Undertaker to do this, Brooklyn-style, tonight, tonight, tonight, NOW, NOW, NOW!! Bring your ass to this ring!
"YES" chants by the crowd as Lesnar removes his shirt and is ready to fight. Out instead comes Bo Dallas to the ring, doing his victory lap around ringside. Bo says to Mr. Brock, he has good news and bad news. The bad news is last night against Undertaker, you passed out. The good news is you eventually woke up and had a good dream, like you actually beating the Undertaker. Brock, you can make those dreams come true, all you have to do is BOLIEVE! That's it, Brock, Bolieve, Bolieve, Brock!
Lesnar with a clothesline and four release Germans to Dallas, sending him to Suplex City. Crowd wants more suplexes, but Lesnar leaves with Heyman to the back, but Heyman says, "how about five?" Lesnar gets back in, grabs Dallas, suplex #5! Crowd still wants more, but Lesnar leaves again to the back. Heyman again stops him and says he wants one for himself. Lesnar gets back in, lifts up Dallas as Heyman says that he wants Dallas to know that Brock BOLIEVES! F-5 by Lesnar to Dallas and finally Lesnar & Heyman leave.

You would want someone who would be paying back the people, that is called loyalty, Seth Rollins has loyalty. You would want someone who respected those who got them where they are, they have respect, Seth Rollins has respect, hustle, loyalty, respect. But, Seth Rollins also is, unlike some people, is a winner.

Tonight is an incredible night, not just for me, not just for you, but for everyone in this building and the WWE Universe. This is incredible, tonight I join the Mount Rushmore of WWE, the elite of the elite. This might be bigger than a Hall of Fame induction, this is like Monument Park at Yankee Stadium. This is like Babe Ruth, Joe Dimaggio, or whatever you people have to immortalize the Brooklyn Nets. Wait a minute, they stink, sorry. I'm reminded of a great adage tonight. Heroes are remembered, but legends never die. Last night, when I defeated John Cena to become the first man to hold both the WWE World & US titles at the same time, I became a legend. And tonight, with the unveiling of this statue.......tonight, just give me a minute, this is huge. Tonight, with the unveiling of this statue, I become immortal. Now, I said a lot of terrible things about John Cena over the last month, most of them well-deserved. I said John Cena was a cancer and that I was the cure and I meant every single word of it, but there is a reason that John Cena has sat on top of the mountain for the last 10 years, because he has worked every single day to be the man. Truth. But to be the man, you've got to beat the man and that's exactly what I did last night. And when we unveil the statue, just like you said Trips, I am no longer the future, I am the man. And when I main event numerous Wrestlemanias and when I'm dead and gone, this statue will commenorate my legacy. Bruno Sammartino, The Ultimate Warrior, Andre the Giant and now, Seth Rollins. Its time, I can't wait anymore, Brooklyn, are you ready? This one's for you, Trips, I said Brooklyn, Well, let's do this, because the champ is here!
