Wonderpod-Online

Coming off a stinker of a PPV, the WWE has decided to try to salvage the product. In all fairness, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it would appear that almost every single member of the IWC is visually challenged. That’s the P.C. way to say fucking blind, right? Just kidding, most of that PPV sucked. Let’s see if Smackdown gets the same treatment. It doesn’t cost $45-55 either! Hopping time…


Best Cubito Aequet ever.

I watch, write, suffer, and succumb to this show, yet have to remind myself of what happened only minutes after each episode. That is how G’s Smackdown reviews work. This is not a play-by-play recap, there’s enough of those online. This is a highly-opinionated take of the show in question.

Hey Meltzer! What did you think about Smackdown this week? Are you EVEN Dave Meltzer?

As clear and concise as always… :)

Well, I guess I better figure out what happened myself. Figured I should use the two LOLZ I made this week for something other than making people smile on facebook, no? Hopping time!

Friday Night Smackdown hopping time! Shall we?

I watch, write, suffer, and succumb to this show, yet have to remind myself of what happened only minutes after each episode. That is how G’s Smackdown reviews work. This is not a play-by-play recap, there’s enough of those online. This is a highly-opinionated take of the show in question.

- This semi-new call sign at the start still doesn’t sit with me right… then into the Green Day which I am shocked has not changed yet… albeit, one change will likely happen shortly cough… cough… Cameron… cough.

- Sheamus begins the show with a kiss-ass segment to HHH’s fake retirement tease on Monday. LOL. VERY SINCERE. Fortunately unmixed strawberry yogurt is interrupted by Damien Sandow who runs down the champ for being ignorant and that HHH and DX beat him down on the 1000th episode of RAW. Sandow makes a lot of sense calling Sheamus out for being a stereotype of the Irish, but of course Sheamus tells him off with elementary bully level comebacks. Booker T makes this match official even though Sandow declined Sheamus’ offer.

Logo
Best Story Ever?

- * Rey Mysterio vs. Cody Rhodes. Cole does good bringing up that it was Mysterio who injured the face of Rhodes years ago, forcing him to wear a protective mask for a spell. Nice attention to detail. This match gets a good amount of time, and as a result is worth a look. Our climax has Mysterio drop kick the feet of a running Rhodes, causing him to fall into position for the 619. But Rhodes catches Rey before he connects, and a reversal rollup allows Rey to pick up the win! Rhodes beats down Rey post match, but Sin Cara makes the save. To top it off, Sin Cara puts one of HIS masks on Rhodes as a form of humiliation.

Logo
I guess Little Jimmy is a Republican?

- Eve Torres joins commentary to comment about commenting, and it commences. She talks about something, I guess. Sounds like FFW to me.

- * Kaitlyn vs. Natalya. Nattie is in full-on-heel mode here, and is demanding respect as she ragdolls Kaitlyn’s upper lip around the ring. Then she stretches’ AJ Lee’s former bestie. It’s not a bad little match, and both women are convincing wrestlers. So that’s good. Short, though, as Kaitlyn ekes out a rollup win and bails away from the angry Calgarian.

- Matt Striker talks to Booker about AJ Lee’s unwarranted attack on Vickie on Monday. Booker thinks AJ has overstepped her role making the career match between Ziggler and Jericho, and then attacking Vickie. Enter Vickie, who is planning on taking action for the assault and has consulted the WWE Board of Directors about this.

Logo
Charles Barkley @G: “Check me out! I’m singing some Boys II Men, G!”

G @Charles Barkley: “Ahh, yes the ode of the Hardy Boyz”

- * World Champion Sheamus vs. Damien Sandow. Sandow is fantastic in the bout, and takes it to the champ (who of course can’t sell for him, as per usual). And that, my friends, is why this is a good thing. He’s being elevated into the title picture! He beats down the Irishman, telling him audibly in a loud voice to “Just quit.” The two trade attacks, until Sandow is taught how to count by Sheamus for a near fall. Sandow rolls out of the ring multiple times, but it plays to his favor, allowing him to dodge a near-Brogue Kick. Sandow tosses Sheamus into the side of the ring and runs the fuck out of Dodge! TEN COUNT WIN FOR SHEAMUS. Not a definitive win, and Sandow still looks strong. He took it to the champ, he didn’t want this match in the first place, and he uses his intelligence to beat up Sheamus and still get out while the getting out was good.

Logo
Fuck you up, he will.

- * The Prime Time Players vs. Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd. The first time we’ve really seen the Gabriel/Kidd tandem on significant WWE programming. I like the potential of this team a lot. The Usos pop up in a picture-in-picture Tout and say “Uso” a lot. Great. This match is a little short for my liking, but does showcase all four men involved. The high fliers gets some great moves in, but it’s their risk taking that ultimately causes them the loss and allows Darren Young to make the pin for the win for his team. Again, worth a watch.

- Del Rio raves on the microphone pre-match about tapping out the most boring man in the world, Randall Keith Orton. Josh Mathews questions how ADR has a chance at Sheamus, even though he has lost to him everytime. ADR notes how Kane tossed away Mathews like a piece of trash, and threatens to do that right now. Hit Kane’s fireworks.

Logo
Obama certainly was on reddit. For realz! Kayfabe!

"Hello, my name is Kane. As part of my anger management therapy, my therapist has told me to come out here and apologize to you, Josh Mathews. Sorry for throwing you over the barricade at SummerSlam…" says Kane. Then Teddy Long comes out and makes this match official.

Logo
El Generico is just plain awesome.

- * Kane vs. Alberto Del Rio. ADR is facing the Sharing and Caring champion of the IWC (this week). Kane certainly shares a plethora of ramshackle offense to start this thing off. Kane pretty much dominates, until he attacks Ricardo Rodriguez for some reason… allowing ADR to attack from behind with a Codebreaker and capture a pin and the win. KANE IS PISSED. So naturally he goes after Josh Mathews, tosses him around, apologizing all the while. Chokeslam! And begrudgingly he calls for his post match pyro.

- Mikey! Cole! returns to tell us Josh Mathews is dead again, and his corpse was airlifted out of the arena and shot into the sun. Well, he was helped to the back by WWE officials, but I kind of like my version better.

TWITTAH TIME WITH KEVIN NASH!

Logo
Nerd wins!

- * Randy Orton vs. Dolph Ziggler. This should be better, because at the end of the day, Orton is a pretty safe worker and Ziggler is a bumping machine, but damn it’s feels slow. I check my DVR, nope only 6 minutes of 10 left… no overrun on Smackdown. Orton is really taking his time… fuck…. me… Even Vickie seems more agitated than normal. The crowd is all over this shit, and sadly it’s because of the Viper. I completely lose my train of thought, have to rewind and sadly sit through the rest. Ziggler misses with a Zig Zag, and falls into an RKO. Orton wins.

- Whatever, this was overall a solid show. Just keep in mind I didn’t even bother mentioning that they reaired all three of Daniel Bryan/Kane Anger Management segments and HHH’s fake retirement spot. You should skip those.

I criticize because I care. I did enjoy the show. I wouldn’t watch if I didn’t love this shit.

<!—:en—>Smackdown 08/24/12<!—:—>

So, apparently I’m supposed to write some kind of intro paragraph for these things. A paragraph usually is constituted with a few sentences that correlate to an idea and supports the content within. Furthermore, including this sentence, I count three strings of words. Done. Let’s hop to it, shall we?

I watch, write, suffer, and succumb to this show, yet have to remind myself of what happened only minutes after each episode. That is how G’s Smackdown reviews work. This is not a play-by-play recap, there’s enough of those online. This is a highly-opinionated take of the show in question.

- We’re told an enraged Alberto Del Rio wants answers for getting screwed over by the heelish bully and car thief, Sheamus at Summerslam. Then we see clips from the 24 hour RAW on Monday in which Sheamus continued his dastardly ways by screwing ADR in his match against Randall Keith Orton.

- Orton decides he will put us all to sleep with a promo in the ring to kick off the show. God, these are always death. Meanwhile, BWF Radio regular is in a viper-induced coma. Orton tells anyone in the back to confront him if they think he’s a dick. Sheamus comes out and more or less get’s on Orton’s member telling him he wants to face Orton for his corrupt title. HOLLA HOLLA! FLOW CHART! Oh wait, it’s Booker-T. My bad. T likes the smell of this program, which has the distinct aroma of FFW soup. But first….

Logo
This guy probably has one hell of a drop kick.

- Enter ADR who rightfully calls bullshit on this fucking injustice (his words, not mine). He points out all of what I’ve argued. Sheamus is a cheating criminal, and if this B A Star thing is to be considered legit, Alberto Del Rio is a true hero. It’s a conspiracy against a fine young upstanding ADR.

- * Ryback vs. Jinder Mahal. Battlecreek Michigan versus Calgary… Alberta, Canada?

Logo
FEED…. ME… MORE!!!

- Ryback notes, “Jinder Mahal, tonight you finally understand your place in the food chain! FEED ME MORE!” I guess that was a passable promo for the red-eye-knight. Clips and shit are shown. Jinder is going toe-to-toe with the Ryback, even stomping him down and making him his bitch while the crowd chants “This is gay! This is gay!” Oh wait, they’re chanting “U-S-A! U-S-A!” My bad, I thought they were homophobes, turns out they’re just racist nationalists that forget they’re an immigrant based country. LOL. Melting pot, my ass. After a nice display of offense, Ry-Van-Dam hits his little march slam move on Jinder for the win. I hope I riled a couple of you Yankees up tonight. I’m Canadian, and I’m fucking down being polite! Ha ha, eh!

Logo
I seem to be on a bit of an angry animal kick tonight… got stuck at work much later than I would have liked. Plus Summerslam, RAW, and Impact sucked my balls for the most part.

- * Non-Title Match: Layla {C} vs. Alicia Fox. Stupid non-title matches. Whatever. FFW, don’t care. The ladies kind of roll around and pretend to wrestle. This really sucks. Layla wins in about 90 seconds. Moving on… as Eve makes her way down to raise the hands of Kaitlyn and Layla (Kaitlyn was on commentary, I suppose). Weird shit here folks.

Logo
Jack be creepy, Jack be sick…

- Dolph Ziggler discusses beating Chris Jericho with Vickie backstage. They complain about A.J. not being the father of Claire Lynch’s baby or some crap. Enter on-the-lam criminal Sheamus who thinks Ziggler should cash in the MitB tonight. Ziggler tells him to fuck off. Corrupt assistant to Booker T tells them that they will face each other tonight in a non-title match.


It’s just a matter of time…

- * Heath Slater vs Sin Cara. Cody Rhodes is on commentary. The lights are dimmed, and whatnot. Rhodes notes that 8 times out of 10 he agrees with Cole on commentary, I note that Rhodes never learned how to reduce his fractions. BOO! MATH MUST PREVAIL! Actually, I could give a fuck. I saw this match THREE TIMES in Calgary last summer on one show. It’s a good mix of the flippy floppy and the… umm… what’s Slater’s move set called again? Being squashed all that time makes me unsure. But Slater ekes out a victory in a pretty short match. Rhodes flies into the ring to demask the fallen lucha. But, the referees prevent this from happening as “Cody Sucks!” chants ring out from the crowd.

Logo
How I wish the Claire Lynch story would end on Impact. That or a Popeye run in on AJ, either or.

- * Non-Title Match: Sheamus {C} vs. Dolph Ziggler. Vickie joins commentary. She talks about Teddy bears or something, I tune out from commentary as per usual. Both men are sold as strong to start, and I can’t say it’s turrible. Barks can though, and likely will during a seemingly logical pending commercial break. Dolph learns to count in honor of the late, great Jerry Nelson. But it turns out I am wrong as Ziggler uses the briefcase to beat down the so-called champ and then wants to cash it in! Then as Sheamus arises from seeming death, Ziggler reclaims his contract before it’s made official! THERE WILL BE NO TITLE MATCH TODAY! Ziggles shouts “NO RUSH!” as he makes his way to the back. 1, 2, 3, 4… 4 premature contract cash ins! AH AH AH!! RIP Mr. Nelson.

Logo
:( He was a vampire that appealed to kids. AND… AND… he did not fucking sparkle.

- Santino is in the ring talking about loving America and that type of stuff. Also a Canadian depicted as someone from another country. LOL. Santino wants his rematch, and is mildly entertaining and talks to his sock puppet and things get stupid funny. You will either love or hate this. Me? I like trainwrecks, and the fact that he is telling his hand about the birds and the bees is so retarded it’s awesome. Aksana distracted the sock puppet, and Santino asks his hand if it can milk him. PG TV, folks! Then he quotes Rocky, and he gets his Cobra all fired up! El oh el! Enter the current US champ and his eye-candy valet… Our five words tonight are “winner.” Then they make out. Cesaro taunts the Milan Miracle and they fight on the ramp. But once again, the Cobra is distracted by Aksana, and Cesaro lays him out.

[caption id=”” align=”aligncenter” width=”576”]Charles Barkley @G: “Did you see me in the audience at Summerslam, G? I got seats with some rats!”[/caption]
G @Charles Barkley: “They confiscated your A.W. sign, didn’t they?”

- * WWE Tag Team Title Match: Kofi Kingston & R-Truth {C} vs. Epico & Primo. The Prime Time Players join commentary. Fuck, lot’s of joining commentary tonight. Albeit, Titus Oneil does do a funny impression of Booker T, even though it distracts from a pretty good match. The Colons are looking better each time I see them. This match is pretty solid for the 2 minutes they give them. R-Truth snags a win for his tandem while the PTP’s do their best to glare at the champs.

Logo
Do I REALLY need a caption for this one?

- The Day movie trailer. I check it out since I FFW’d through it on Monday. Striker talks to the tag champs backstage… pretty generic about taking on all comers, etc. The P2P’s enter and Titus tells Little Jimmy he needs to be seen and not heard! HA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHA! Classic. Then the rarely seen Usos enter staking a claim, as well as the Colons. Brawl segment ensues. At least it FEELS like there is a tag team division, so there’s that.

Logo
I’ve got to wonder how devastating the WMD would be if taken by Ziggler.

- Booker talks to Teddy about who deserves a title match for the tag titles… and Teddy blanks. Yes, the guy who flow charts tag matches for ten years blanks. Fuck off. Eve enters and did all the research, hands it to Booker and then turns to snub an angry looking Teddy.

- Clip packages for like 13549791035907501 hours.

- * #1 Contender’s Match: Randy Orton vs. Alberto Del Rio. The match is getting lots of time and things start out slow. Why? Randall? Randall? Clean up in aisle 9, Randall, clean up in aisle 9. Price check on boredom…. why must you ruin ADR matches? Then we return to typical rest holds… They keep wrestling… and I’m distracted checking other things, so I type little here. Why? Because I write this as I watch and drink. Sheamus is shitty on the announce table (yes, that theme continues). Orton always seems to make me check out mentally. Fortunately, Orton has some straight-to-DVD movie to film and Del Rio slaps on move #248
“ARM BAR” and submits the bag-shitter. Post match, criminal mastermind, Sheamus attacks ADR because he’s a good guy. FUCK THIS SHIT. HE’S A FUCKING HEEL! STOP THIS SHIT, WWE! Del Rio sneaks his way out of the ring, because that’s what faces do. Ziggler teases the cash in again, only to immediately eat an RKO? WHY? Why the fuck would Orton defend Sheamus here? DUMB!! Fuck it, I made it through wrestling this week.

I criticize because I care. I did enjoy the show. I wouldn’t watch if I didn’t love this shit.

<!—:en—>Smackdown 08/17/12: A Better Go Home Show Than RAW<!—:—>

It’s Summerslam weekend (well, close enough). We’ll be running down the Summerslam card on BWF Radio this Sunday with some special guests. I’m announcing no one yet, because it’s going to be huge… and awesome. Tune in to boredwrestlingfan.com or wonderpodonline.com on Sunday to check it out with plenty of time before the PPV.

Pretty much the whole card has been announced. There’s even some last minute matches likely to be teased tonight and then cut for time on Sunday. I expect a holding pattern, and a whole bunch of clip packages. Maybe I’ll get through this in record time? Only one way to find out, let’s hop to it, shall we?


I watch, write, suffer, and succumb to this show, yet have to remind myself of what happened only minutes after each episode. That is how G’s Smackdown reviews work. This is not a play-by-play recap, there’s enough of those online. This is a highly-opinionated take of the show in question.

- Yep. We kick off our show with clips. It’s a rundown of the Sheamus/ADR feud and the so-called “cancelled” match at Summerslam this Sunday. Naturally, this segues into Alberto Del Rio coming out with Ricardo Rodriguez. And boy is he pissed. Booker T comes down to address the issue. ADR spoke with his lawyers… BREAK THE WALLS DOWN! Y2J tells him to SHUT THE HELL UP. Del Rio will have none of this, but Jericho speaks Spanish too. I don’t speak it, so I have little clue what he says. “His breath smells like dog poop,” Y2J Google translates for us. All in all it’s a fun segment which results in the Book-man making it a match.

The pride of Sunnyvale, The Trailer Park Boys in 8-bit. Hit the image for a link to Al Creed. You’re welcome.

- * Rey Mysterio/Sin Cara vs. Cody Rhodes/The Miz. These two respective teams are to face each other at Summerslam. The Sin Cara/Cody Rhodes one is still a bit up in the air though. Rhodes enters last with a microphone telling us he was trying to unmask Sin Cara to reveal his ugly face for what it is, warning the audience as he reveals an artist’s rendition of what the lucha’s face actually looks like. As the match starts, Cara attacks Rhodes and the two masked men take the advantage. You know what? I really dig these guys in as team mates, both teams. They seem to click. This match delivers! We get a high octane energetic effort, with a balance of technical and acrobatic moves. The finish comes with a neat spot where Sin Cara is outside the ring and Rhodes is leaning through the ropes trying to demask him, but Rhodes gets taken out with a 619! The luchas win! Post match, sneaky Miz attempts to attack Mysterio with the IC title, only to have it turn on him and he too eats a 619 breakfast. Totally worth the watch.


I’d do the same thing to anyone wearing a Jason mask at a campsite. You just can’t be too careful.

- * Tyler Reks/Curt Hawkins vs …??? Reks and Hawkins are in suits, which they take the jackets off… then their shirts, with ties… it’s a strip tease gimmick. By the end of it, they are in ring gear…. and are facing ??? Some random jobbers who get no name graphics. The Strippers work in little dance moves as they dismantle two guys that look like food for Ryback. “Interesting gyrations…” says Cole. Is this PG? Probably not. Do the two give it their all in an attempt to get the gimmick over? Yes. Guess who wins.


I can’t believe they spelled “laser” wrong.

- Backstage, Eve runs into William Regal who wishes her luck. Regal reminisces when he was GM of RAW and he fed off the power, and the dangers of power. Then some random worker asks what she is paying Regal for, and to take out the trash. LOL. That was funny. More Wade Barrett clip packages. I like’em. How about you?

- * Kaitlyn vs. Eve Torres (the winner becomes Booker T’s assistant). Teddy Long joins commentary as an observer for Booker. Cole notably mentions Eve’s appearance in “Stars vs Stripes” which goes head-to-head with part of the 6571835641432 hours of RAW on Monday nights. I wouldn’t tell the audience that, even in the DVR age. It’s not a very long match, but it isn’t horrible. These two do a good job. But, Eve picks up the win with what I presume is her finisher, fucked if I know. She grins maliciously and goes over to grin in an unimpressed Teddy Long’s face.


Charles Barkley @G: “I hear you were in a zombie parody or something, honkey.”

G @Charles Barkley: “Who me? Nah….”

[youtube I9flUHuruH0]
But which one am I?

- Booker meets with his new assistant, and wants to know about how her history with Teddy Long is going to be an issue. Eve claims it will be ok, and leaves. Booker’s face drops and looks like he wants to kill a man…. or woman, for that matter.

- * Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton. Wow, they sure are giving these unique matchups, huh? First Cena, now Orton? Bryan continues to play off the crowd chanting “Yes” with his “No!” Boreton makes his slow methodical way out to the ring. Geez. On one side, you have a guy I WANT to watch in Bryan, and on the other a walking sedative. In a funny moment Bryan finds himself outside the ring as some crazy fan (plant?) is repeatedly shouting YES! at him. Funny shit. Bryan works Randall Keith Orton’s knee like a good heel should (no the “punt” is still banned). Bryan doesn’t care and stretches him real good. Orton’s worked punches still suck, BTW. Commercials…


Happy Birthday Little Jimmy! Source

- We return to Bryan focusing almost all his energy on carrying Orton and working the knee. It’s very good psychology, even though wrestling dies anytime littler men hold titles (right Big Lazy?). To give the Viper credit, he continues to sell the injuries through out, to the point of his counter attacks hurting him too as he limps around the ring. The crowd is very into this match, excellent atmosphere! Orton finally gets set up to pull out an RKO, which Bryan reverses into a No-Lock utilizing leverage on the injured knee. BAM!!!! Kane’s pyro hits, distracting the American Dragon! This allows Orton to pick up the win with an RKO. You know what? This was another great match on a show I thought would suck. But I don’t go back and edit what I already wrote. That’s my deal, I was wrong…. even if the rest of the show sucks from here on in, but I doubt that with Jericho and Del Rio left to go.


Catch them all, brother!

- * Antonio Cesaro vs. Zack Ryder. Santino joins commentary to watch the guy who will hopefully take the strap from him in the pre-show Youtube match this Sunday… and hopefully rename it the European Championship. More Cesaro five language shit… this week’s secret word is “Loser” as the crowd chants USA. Funny, Santino is actually Canadian and Cesaro is Swiss. Go figure, I guess that means Zack Ryder is Hacksaw Jim Duggan now. Ryder gets some attacks in, but let’s face it folks, WOO WOO WOO, it’s over. Cesaro makes short work of the Orange One. Sorry Joe!


I kind of want him to show up at Summerslam like this…

- Here’s the clip packages. Tells the story of Bork Laser and all the contract shit between him and HHH leading up to this Sunday. Broken arms, and all that stuff. Good times in FFW land for this here G.


DDP about to kick out a mad freestyle.

- * Chris Jericho vs. Alberto Del Rio.  ? Or is it? Backstage a laid out and beaten down Chris Jericho is being yelled at by Dolph Ziggler who tells him he can’t win the big one… Booker arrives on the scene and tells him to get the fuck out of Dodge. Aces and Eights? LOL. Popeye? Too many inside references? NEVER!


I don’t know either, but still more entertaining than a Kelly Kelly Kelly match.

- We’re back with a replay of what we just saw in case we forgot. Del Rio dons a shit-eating grin in the ring, and asks about some more “Spanish” from Jericho. He gets Ricardo to tell the audience the winner is Alberto, and demands Booker T come out and award him with his Summerslam match. Nope, the Walls are broken down. Jericho shambles down to face the Mexican aristocrat.

- * Chris Jericho vs. Alberto Del Rio (take two). Y2J backs down for nobody, but Del Rio takes advantage of his injured sternum/chest-area. Wow, this is some good story telling! With the injury, Jericho continues to desperately fight back as the heeltastic Del Rio dominates the man from Winnipeg. We hit some commercials to enter our final segment of the show…


Horsepower.

- Jericho will just not stop. He’s a face now, so what can you expect. He pulls out moves that hurt him like the lionsault, and the like, and even the Walls of Jericho hurt the man. Yes, I realize that Bryan/Orton played a similar card tonight, but no fucks are given by this wrestling fan. Dolph Ziggler sneak attacks Jericho c/o referee distraction and this allows the dastardly Del Rio to pick up the win! Ricardo almost loses his voice announcing the victory. Post match, Del Rio locks on an armbar (backstage Dean Malenko is smiling)… but Sheamus runs out and attacks Del Rio! Del Rio turns the tides and works Sheamus’ injured arm as the two brawl on the outside and into the arena. Del Rio walks away and the angry Irishman checks on his fallen new bestie, Chris Jericho. Booker T comes out and asks what’s up. Sheamus wants his match at Summerslam reinstated. Sheamus doesn’t care that he is injured and if it is for the World Heavyweight Championship. So Booker complies.

- Good show all around, three thumbs up! I attached another arm to my torso on Wednesday. Good times.

I criticize because I care. I did enjoy the show. I wouldn’t watch if I didn’t love this shit.

<!—:en—>Smackdown 08/10/12<!—:—><!—:de—>Smackdown 08/10/12<!—:—><!—:zh—>Smackdown 08/10/12<!—:—>

Oh, the hell with it. Joe better be careful on BWF Radio reading what I write tonight. Let’s see how many of these I give this week:


Just hit the damn jump, Boba Haters.



I watch, write, suffer, and succumb to this show, yet have to remind myself of what happened only minutes after each episode. That is how G’s Smackdown reviews work. This is not a play-by-play recap, there’s enough of those online. This is a highly-opinionated take of the show in question.

- Note the computer I am writing this on is being backed up onto my other computer, and is acting sluggish. This will affect my review….indeed!

[caption id=”attachment_12705” align=”aligncenter” width=”300”] Always a mystery…[/caption]

- Our one time GM, Booker T, heads to the ring. He gives the crowd a one-time Spin-a-rooni, and reminds us he is in his hometown of Houston. “Houston, we have a problem…” he notes. Curious? Curiousity? See what I did there? Clips of Sheamus’ larceny on RAW air, and The Book-Man requests The Great White comes to the ring to apologize for being a criminal. Sheamus notes that Del Rio tried to take his dignity last Friday, so he opted to steal Alberto’s car. Sheamus apologizes to Booker, the entire WWE Universe, and insincerely to Del Rio. As a member of the universe in question, I do not accept his apology. I DEMAND PROSECUTION IN THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW!!! Del Rio seems to agree, and enters calling Sheamus, and rightfully so, a criminal. Booker points out that if Sheamus can’t defend the title in jail (fuck that, strip the guy), so basically this all culminates in making a World Title defense tonight.


I wonder what Curiosity would have done to Max Moon?

- * Cody Rhodes vs. Sin Cara - Ok, now my computers are being total fuckers… Rhodes mentions he is also is familiar with wearing a mask, but the difference is that Sin Cara is ugly. Umm…. zing? Terrible. It’s a quick, decent match. Rhodes spends too much time trying to demask Sin Cara, and as a result gets a fruit roll-up and your champion of the match is Sin Cara. Just prior, Rhodes looks up and mouths “What’s with the lights?”


I bet you’re laughing. I was too, until I realized that this kid just might be REALLY good at defense and willing to take two for the team.

- Cut to Daniel Bryan walking backstage yelling “No!” at random grips, P.A.’s, wrestlers, etc. Bryan hunkers down in the ring as the crowd cries “YES!” at him… I swear, I thought he was going into the punk position. “Do you people think I am nothing more than a catchphrase?” he demands, to which the crowd of course responds… well… you know what they say. Then Bryan goes off, and I don’t rewrite promos. Let’s just say it’s awesome, and he rants about being a champion, AJ, and his match at Summerslam with Kane. He feels he deserves more than that, and the crowd can fuck off. Kane comes out, and then AJ comes out? WTF? Wrong show dipshit. Booker asked her here, we’re told and she does her head twitch crap and over-emoting garbage. AJ tells Kane that she appreciated how Kane was honest with her when she was in slut-mode a while back. Then she demands that Bryan shakes Kane’s hand while looking like she is having an orgasm. Then Kane attacks Bryan, so the latter flees. It was an entertaining bit, all thanks to Bryan and no one else. Looks like AJ wants to fuck Kane again.


6-C is “Run like a cowardly heel.” Awesome.

- Hawkins and Rekks approach Booker T and want a shot, but T wants “A+” talent not jobbers to Pinky and the Back (hint both of latter two are actually one guy).


This is so spot on, I had to include it somewhere on this site.

- * Jinder Mahal vs. Two Random Job Guys Mahal has his fucking hat box back, because all of us Calgarians put our turbans in glass boxes. That’s what we do. Then Mahal gets a screen bit about telling Eye-fart-back about beating two jobbers quicker than the guy who can’t find toilet paper. Mahal fucks them up quick, and puts both in a double camel clutch spot. Then Ry-Van-Back enters and runs off the Calgarian. Rycrack then does his double finisher spot. I’m not impressed. Mahal already softened them up. Smores were had by all in the crowd, right Joe?


Survivor Naut G will return to the Wonderpod show soon enough, meanwhile, Diddy found outside work as a sociopath.

- There better be fucking hockey next season, or I riot.


What he said. I murdered some guy at a Burger King once… not going through that again….

- * Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel Returns w/ Dolph Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero. You already know this is awesome, so just go watch it. It’s the first time in over two years since this has been on WWE television. Vickie comes out and tells Jericho he cannot interview her client, and they have a funny back and forth. This is the reason to watch tonight’s show. So if you are on the fence, just go watch this segment. He had time to re-evaluate and maybe it’s time to… well, “Y2J is back, BABY!” Awesome. Ziggler tries to run in, Jericho fucks up his shit… Vickie slaps Jericho and Ziggy Ziggles blindsides Y2J! Then he clocks him with the briefcase! I watch this twice. Watch it once, or turn in your Wrestling Fan Card in at the desk on the way out. The following will be up until the Orwellian police take it down:

[youtube pZO00tOtjew]
Hit the 8 minute mark, smark.

- * #1 Contender’s Match: The Primetime Players vs. Epico and Primo. Probably worth noting that this is the last time you’ll see AW with the PP’s since his Kobe comment Muhammad Hassan’d him right out into the pastures of future endeavors. I thought that would happen last week, BUT NO! AW reverses the decision into three more television appearances only to be laid out by the Corporation during a house show run in on Friday! Looks like the Colons might get a bit more time as a result. Shitty deal for Young and Oneil… oh well. The match is rendered moot as Kofi Bryant and R-Truth interfere (they were on commentary), and they beat down AW. Coincidence? No.

[caption id=”” align=”aligncenter” width=”500”]Charles Barkley @G: “While you were camping last week, you missed the turrible performance by the nightmare team.  They’re only beating other teams by 20 points or so.  Turrible.”[/caption]
G @Charles Barkley: “I’ve caught a few games, but honestly your NBC coverage is even more turrible.  At least your team was unstoppable like Kobe Kingston in a hotel.”

- LOL, switching Kofi and Kobe’s last names is still real to me. Moving on… fucking computers are still being fucktards.

- * Christian vs. Antonio Cesaro w/ Aksana. Ok, this should be good. Let me entertainment you. Cesaro wants to speak to us in 5 different languages. Hey, he learned five words, and all of them are “Victory” this week. I smell a gimmick. Much better this week. They deliver, and we get a showcase of technically sound wrestling. Christian gets the win though, which is a bit of a shame. The two trade spots leading to a SPEAR! BAH GAWD! I don’t think the Captain needed the win here, but it is what it is.


No caption needed.

- Arda Ocal tells us Canadian viewers on The Score that Lance Storm Academy has produced yet another talent. Nice! But there is also somewhere else wrestlers, referees, and other talent can learn the business in Calgary…. Alberta, Canada. It’s Original Stampede Wrestling. It’s run by Bruce Hart and Doc Knight, and we at boredwrestlingfan.com had the pleasure to interview them about this restart of the innovative Stampede Wrestling this week. That interview is here.

- Eve talks shit about being invaluable to Johnny Ace, but Booker could give two fucks. Then Kaitlyn is brought in by Teddy Long to be an assistant and is hired immediately much to Eve’s chagrin. Booker makes it a match between the two, and the winner gets the job. That’s how I got my job at Burger King in highschool. I killed another man… but that’s a story for another day.

[caption id=”” align=”aligncenter” width=”225”]Seems legit.[/caption]

- * Non-Title Match: The Miz {C} vs. Rey Mysterio. Whoop-dee-doo. Non-title match. Fuck this shit. Mysterio is still wearing his rubber shirt with a question mark on it. Why? Because he’s fat now. And wrestlers can’t be fat. Just ask Dusty Rhodes, Andre “the Giant”, Tugboat, Mass Transit, Yokozuna, Uncle Elmer, or Fatty McGee. They all agree. Whatever, this was a decent match at best. Rey and Miz trade a bunch of spots up and down the ring. Near falls, etc. I’m just apathetic because of the non-title clause. FUCKING HATE THAT STIP. One neat spot has Miz reverse the 619, but Mysterio still counters his finisher with another Fruit-Rollup, and picks up the win. At least put this as a title match on the PPV. Could’ve been better.


I think it’s obvious that Zangief takes round 1.

- * World Title Match: Sheamus {C} vs. Alberto Del Rio. They’ve got five minutes. That doesn’t bode well. Police officers come down to arrest Sheamus? Huh. Del Rio tells them to back off, as he wants his title back. Sheamus fights the police, because that’s what upstanding B-A-Star face champions do. The rest of the NWA run in, I guess. The cops beat down the Irishman and Del Rio tries to ply them off of the Great White. But no, he’s going where he belongs. At least the cops let our Mexican Millionaire get some cheap shots in. The cops hold Sheamus in place so Del Rio can dropkick him… then clear the ring so the man can put him in an armbar. And that’s pretty much it, folks!

I criticize because I care. I did enjoy the show. I wouldn’t watch if I didn’t love this shit.

Well, here we are… hot off the heels of the 1000th episode of RAW. How am I supposed to be excited for Smackdown? The reality is that I can’t get excited. I mean consider all the awesomeness we saw!


Just one of many things you and I forgot happened on the 1000th episode of RAW.

I think I’m going to need a hand “getting to it, shall we?” this week…


Come on. Who didn’t see THAT coming? Hands up!

I watch, write, suffer, and succumb to this show, yet have to remind myself of what happened only minutes after each episode. That is how G’s Smackdown reviews work. This is not a play-by-play recap, there’s enough of those online. This is a highly-opinionated take of the show in question.

- It appears that the new signature we saw on RAW is sticking around… at least for this week. Probably for good, but how would I know?

- Then a whole boatload of clips from Monday are aired…

- The Miz is out to remind us he beat Christian for the IC title on Monday. Triple Crown! He is swiftly cut off by Christian who has opted to revoke his rematch clause right now!


What he said.

- * IC Title Match: The Miz {C} vs. Christian. Our first segment is more of the Peep Show, than anything. Christian makes Miz look great, bumping all around the ring like Silly Putty that escaped the egg. Mind you Miz, takes some of the brunt himself. Notable that Cole states that the Miz was off making a movie and is now a huge movie star. I’m a little confused, doesn’t the movie need to ACTUALLY COME OUT before you can say that? I’m sure the Marine 98 will stand out in the direct-to-DVD bin! Nonetheless, Christian sets up for a crossbody splash, lands it for a two count… goes up again, and lands another near fall with a second rope reverse DDT, and another bunch more nearfalls ensue. Captain Charisma goes for an Unprettier, reversed! A spear is charged up by the Canadian, but Miz wisely moves out of the way. Some nefarious referee distraction allows Miz to retain with a rollup grabbing the tights. FANTASTIC START TO THE SHOW!


Hiyah Dwayne! How you doing?

- * Jinder Mahal vs. Ryback. Mahal actually gets a bunch of offense in, and even slaps on a Camel Clutch! Of course Ryback stands up mid submission and crushes him. Mahal looks to eat a clothesline, and ducks the attack to the outside! Mahal says screw this and takes a count-out loss rather than re-enter the ring. Our very first non-finish for Ry-Van-Back! The Goldberg wanna-be is left hungry, angry, and… umm… air-brushy?


The Rock shouldn’t have traded his lungs for a set of gills. Just saying.

- Logically, after I posted that animated gif we rewatch that segment on Smackdown. Sheamus enters to console Danny Boy about his bad time on Monday. He gives him what would have been the wedding present, a picture of the infamous 18 second loss at WrestleMania last April.

Logo
Charles Barkley @G: “RAW 1000 was pretty cool. But for the next couple of weeks I’ll be watching that LeBron choke. Did I ever tell you about how I won an Olympic Gold Medal in 1992 with a FREAKIN’ BROKEN NECK?”

G @Charles Barkley: “Sounds familiar…”

Speaking of which, if you somehow missed this… watch it now:
[youtube 3ii2gt0yJcE]

- * Non-Title Match: Sheamus {C} vs. Cody Rhodes. I’m not getting started on non-title matches… we have one more to come too. ARGGHHH!!! Cody is mostly on the receiving end of the punishment here, as Sheamus plays the Goliath role to Cody’s David. You know this story. Or at least to start, because when Sheamus teaches children to count at home, Rhodes reverses out, tosses Sheamus into the steel ring post and almost gets counted out. Now with an isolated injury, Rhodes gets to work. As the commercial break nears, Vickie and Dolph enter, with Ziggler holding his briefcase…


Punk realizes the consequences of his actions. I swoon like a little G.

- Rhodes and Sheamus battle on, without concern of Ziggler… or so it would appear. Rhodes seems to be on the page with Dolph somewhat… and continues to isolate the injured shoulder of the Correction Fluid, Wite-Out. Sheamus becomes more concerned with staring angrily at Dolph, allowing Rhodes to stay in the match. Rhodes hits his sick second rope jumping kick to the head of Fella, but a second leap onto the champ leads to White-noise! Rhodes gingerly gets up and into a Brogue Kick. Thankfully, Dolph does not attempt to cash in, but does tease it post match in a moment of machismo. After he begins to back away, Jericho (wearing a Ziggler shirt), tosses Dolph into the ring and a subsequent Brogue Kick!

- Jericho enters the ring telling a story with his facial expressions of “isn’t that too bad,” and “oh well…” and finally, “LOL.” Then he hits a code breaker, takes off Dolph’s shirt and mocks the fallen Dolph. Great end to a decent bout.


I’m a much bigger fan of THIS Fozzy, sorry JT!

- * Non-Title Match: Santino Marella {C} vs. Antonio Cesaro w/Aksana. See!?!? Another one. At least Cesaro is back on TV! Antonio dominates early, until Aksana tries to distract the referee… Santino capitalizes on it, but Cesaro cares little for Cobra-boy and fucks up his shit for a quick win. Thank god. Also, get the title off of Marella. NOW. I like Marella, but really and sincerely WANT to take the titles seriously again.

- Clips of Sandow getting beat up by DX. Then he walks backstage looking disgusted by his surroundings (e.g. Percy Watson and Derrick Bateman).


Damien Sandow stole Barkley’s staring-directly-into-your-soul gimmick.

- * Yoshi Tatsu vs. Damien Sandow. Sort of. Sandow detroys Tatsu and does his elbow smirk pin. Then he runs down the crowd for enjoying DX’s manhandling of him on Monday. And now he calls himself officially our martyr. YOU’RE WELCOME. I was on the bandwagon for this guy since the first vignette. And I saved you plenty of room on the bandwagon. Get on board, smark.


Good job, Phil.

- More clips and shit. This time Bork Laser and Puppet H chill with Paul E. Dangerously and The Billion Dollar Princess. And it’s cool for the McMahon’s to talk shit about Paul’s kids, but not for him to talk about their children. B A Star! Learn to fucking spell. Paul is the face now, as far as I’m concerned. Fuck HHH and Stephabully.


Slater is also a tree.

- Some Tout crap. FFW. Kane makes his way to the ring. Too bad we didn’t get a Katie Vick reference on the 1000th RAW. Frowny Face.


Hey, I didn’t write this segment.

- * #1 Contender’s Match: Alberto Del Rio vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Kane vs. Daniel Bryan. Kane must have stood in the ring chuckling for like 5 minutes there (wow, exciting for the live crowd, huh?). Everyone else makes their way out as we all FFW. And we think about brains… the one’s HHH fucked out of the corpse of Katie Vick while wearing a Kane mask. Cute fact, there was a REAL funeral going on in the next room when they taped this:


I don’t know what I’d rather wipe off the camera lens. This or… well some other kind of liquid projectile coming from the vicinity of HHH. I told you, I didn’t write this. IT’S NOT MY FAULT. I just work with the material they give me.

- Our match finally gets underway. Men are tossed out for naptime early on, as the match turns into one-on-one, then everyone clustershmozzes, repeat. Not terrible, but predictable. Bryan seems to be the favorite for Rey and Kane to beat on, as Alberto gets tossed away. Kane stands tall as we hit our first commercial break.


Erased from history. Or maybe because… hold on… wait bong rip…. wait, what’s going on? I… err….

- We’re back, and I’m almost wrestled out at this point with RAW, Impact, and now Smackdown. Fuck, I even watched a ROH episode from a month ago this morning….


I’m almost at this point…

- Kane still seems to be in control as we return, but the seemingly ineffectual Del Rio has only begun, dropping the Big Red Machine with a drop kick, and the same with Bryan who eats multiple kicks and a mudhole in the corner. Bryan returns the favor with a series of “YES!” kicks in the opposite corner… but this is far from over. Great portion here. Mysterio ends it by dropping upon them from the top ropes while it looks like Bryan is going to tap from Del Rio’s armbar. Then it’s the Kane show again. Eventually the boredom is quelled and we’re back to Del Rio and Bryan, the latter of which slaps on a YES! lock… But time is not on their side, and Kane, Rey, and Ricardo become relevant again. CHAOS! Kane decides to grab a front row seat, and it’s Rey’s turn for some near falls. He lands a double 619 on Bryan/Del Rio, but Alberto turns the tide and ekes out a win over Bryan. Mysterio’s Benoit’esque diving headbutt (stop doing that move, dumbass) on Bryan is not finished as Ricardo pulls Mysterio out of the ring allowing the heeltastic Del Rio to win.

I criticize because I care. I did enjoy the show. I wouldn’t watch if I didn’t love this shit.

<!—:en—>PatMan Plays: Wrestling Revolution (iOS)<!—:—>

Imagine playing a new wrestling video game in which you can play as many of your favorite stars, both past and present, from multiple wrestling companies at the same time. Superstars such as  Hulk Hogan, Big Papa Pump, & Kurt Angle from TNA while also playing as Daniel Bryan ,Sheamus & CM Punk from the WWE. Now, imagine paying less than a dollar to own the game.  Sound “way too good to be true”? Well, that’s because it IS way too good to be true. However, for under a dollar, that’s “sort of” what you are getting when you download and buy the fun little title named Wrestling Revolution PPV.

You see the stars that I mentioned likeness are in the game, however the developer cleverly does not use the actual names or wrestling companies in this title. Make no mistake,  the likenesses of HIS wrestlers are blatantly and unmistakably evident as to who they are intended to be. You might call it a rip-off and you may even be right, but I am calling it a tribute to wrestling video games by a Indy developer that is obviously a big fan of wrestling himself. And as a gamer and a casual wrestling fan, I am more than happy to put down such a small amount of money for a cool little game that features so many ” homages” to  wrestling stars. The game play is fun, the matches are good and the variety of matches is more than suffice for such a low price tag. Visuals , music and sound are all decent here and most importantly, it controls well with the touch screen. It is not perfect, but considering how many moves, punches, special moves and items you can use in the game, the touch screen works well. I can see this game being much better on the iPad as the iphone has a small screen, but I still am having a fun time with this game. And fun is what it is all about.  I guess, if I held stock in TNA or WWE I may be a little upset about this game, homage or not. Or, if I actually WAS one of the wrestlers being emulated in this title, I might be a little pissed about the copyright infringement. However I am just a gamer looking for a fun and cheap game on IOS,  its not really any of my business if this title is more of a” rip off” or more of a” tribute”.  Who cares, I am having some fun with it for what it is and it hits both my videogamer and wrestling fans needs at the same time. The game is not perfect, but its more than fun enough if your a wrestling fan. Go find those 99 cents, lost in the corners of your couch after it fell out of  your pockets when you were watching RAW, and go buy it.

<!—:en—>Smackdown 07/20/12<!—:—><!—:de—>Smackdown 07/20/12<!—:—><!—:zh—>Smackdown 07/20/12<!—:—>


It seems the last couple of months have been building up to this Monday. Meanwhile back in Smackdown Land, I’m sure most viewers are going into this just waiting for RAW. It’s kind of a bit of a joke though, because after next week’s Monday does the three hour tour… they are going to be scrambling for things to do to fill that extra hour. And let’s be frank for a moment here, they are having problems filling two hours. So what are we in store for tonight? A holding pattern? Two hours of vanilla tout videos? Ryback squashing someone? Momma’s being called? The answer to all of these questions is likely, “Yes,” but since it’s backstage dance time, let’s hop to it shall we?


I watch, write, suffer, and succumb to this show, yet have to remind myself of what happened only minutes after each episode. That is how G’s Smackdown reviews work. This is not a play-by-play recap, there’s enough of those online. This is a highly-opinionated take of the show in question.

- The show kicks off with Rey Mysterio. He’s all happy to be back and shit. Family, friends, hometown, return-from-injury-story-line. He needed to come back for revenge, because that’s what faces do… hit Alberto Del Rio’s music who enters sans car, avec Ricardo Rodrrrrrrrrrrrriguez. Chihuahua jokes, etc. Alberto orders him to leave. Rey says no. Typical… Dolph Ziggler comes out and cuts a great promo about winning the MitB briefcase, and his attempt to cash it in at the PPV which was foiled by Del Rio, who takes offense and calls Dolph a goof and Vickie a whore. Rey tells them to fight, so they look to fight Rey…. So Sheamus comes out and our main event is booked. Kind of bland start to the show, fella.

Sad, but true.

[caption id=”attachment_12252” align=”alignleft” width=”300”] Which is of course in relation to…[/caption][caption id=”” align=”alignleft” width=”300”]….THIS!  Wow, hope the WWE insures there cameramen![/caption]
- * Hunico, Camacho and The Prime Time Players (O’Neil and Young) vs. Epico, Primo, R Truth and Kofi Kingston. Ok, so the title was defended on the YouTube free show, and then an inconsequential tag match took place on the PPV (since the number one contenders have already been determined as being the PP’s?). What in the fuck is wrong with this company? In all fairness, Epico/Primo and Hunico/Camacho (yes, even Camacho) deliver well in the ring while AW begs the low-riders to tag in his team into the match. It’s kind of funny. Even though some people are hating on AW’s microphone being aired live, I think the guy’s gimmick has legs BUT I do also think THIS IS A GUY WHO NEEDS MCMAHON IN HIS EAR telling him what to say. Everything becomes a clustershmoz as the faces clear the ring and we go to commercials… When we return, The Prime Time Players are working their millions on Kofi for a while, until Primo hits a hot tag and some handsprings/top rope flips onto Darren Young. Primo is awesome here! AW issues an open challenge to Primo as a distraction, allowing for Titus O’neil knock him off the top into a Code-Breaker type finisher by Young who grabs the pin and the win! The PP’s do their dance, until the Big Shows music and they run for the hills. Big Show destroys the faces… grabs a microphone. Time to get serious…

Logo
I couldn’t resist making this animated gif… there is so much potential…

- Big Show, “And? What?” and leaves. Angry Show is fair superior to crying face Show. But both Shows are boring as hell in long matches… Cole tells us he is angry, yawn.

- Jeremy Piven is interviewed for his favorite RAW moment, which was when he tried to splash John Cena from the top ropes during the build for Summerfest. Revisionist history tends towards neglecting that groan-tacular RAW host moment.

Logo
Knocked his block off…

- A bunch of clips of Cena air from MitB and last Monday’s RAW. You already saw or read about this, so of course the FFW rules apply.

Who needs a head?
Cena felt bad for what Punk did to Show’s head and decided to “be a star” and go through the same experience to prevent Show from crying in the ring again. Oddly enough, no fucks were given.

- * Zack Ryder vs. Damien Sandow. We are all embarassing ourselves, according to Sandow, by supporting the Orange Guy. But said Oompah Loopah (who did it first, in wrestling), and immediately attacks Sandow. Big mistake. Sandow isolates and reduces the guy to almost jobber status with lethal attacks from all angles, and showing a new rage-inspired persona we have yet to see. Sandow dismantles the Internet Champion and finishes him. Hey come on, every generation needs a Brooklyn Brawler, and Ryder fits that bill right now.


Charles Barkley @G: “I dunno about the WWE anymore G, this show is bunk. I might tune in for the 1000th RAW… but 3 hours!?!? TURRIBLE!”

G @Charles Barkley: “Us smarks have been bemoaning the change for months now, but the first one should be pretty good.”

- PEEP SHOW! Christian is going to have the recently engaged Daniel Bryan and AJ Lee as guests. Look, it’s not Piper’s Pit, but I always mark out for Captain Charisma’s talkshow. They enter hand in hand, both wearing YES! YES! YES! shirts and both are glowing. We get a highlight package of the two planning their wedding. It’s campy as fuck, but pretty entertaining to say the least. I kind of wish they hadn’t FFW’d this gimmick in one week, so we could see a Vegan bachelor party and so forth. Christian gets to the nitty-gritty asking if this is the right thing, etc. Christian polls the crowd and they answer NO!. AJ slaps Christian… but CC notes that Bryan has a match tonight against a psychotic ex-boyfriend right now. Cue Kane’s pyro (even though he noted he isn’t boyfriend material. Man, they put Kane in a lot of shitty stories, huh?).


Also Sad, But True

- * Daniel Bryan vs. Kane. Kane dominates early, even going for a choke slam almost minutes in… AJ emotes as only she can on the outside as Bryan’s resiliencey keeps the Big Red Machine at bay.

- * Heath Slater vs. ….. who could it be? Hmm… Road Warrior Animal? Yep. Guess who wins? Whatever, this was entertaining. Animal of course wins.


Need I comment?

- Backstage Vickie forces me to mute my television as she shrieks at insane volume levels at Ricardo Rodriguez who speaks in Spanish. I have no fucking clue what happened here.

- * Sheamus and Rey Mysterio vs. Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler. Entrances take forever with the heels both having Vickie and Ricardo, and Sheamus and Rey’s first real match comeback taking over. FUCK. I like entrances on occasion. This is not one of them. Save your time! FFW! Everything starts kind of slow… everyone gets a little offense in… enter the adverts. I just now really notice the big “?” on Mysterio’s chest. All men are great in this bout! Splendid main event to be seen on free TV. 20 minute main event! Sheamus ends up going to attack Del Rio for the finish, but is distracted by Rodriguez birthing a DQ finish in favor of the faces. Then the heels attack and serve another Armbar Injury Angle on Sheamus (likely to get him in a bit capacity on the 1000th RAW since they’ve totally overbooked it. Not complaining, I will mark out this Monday… but they’ve got no time for the regular talent). After referees run down and seem the end the spot, BAWH GAWD! The faces recover to prevail over the dastardly heels… and the usual animated gif…. loaded… almost there…. almost there…. Recording a tout…. raising a barn… Fuck this, no one cares…. bring on RAW 1000…


Do not underestimate the bad-assery that is Tom Waits.


Brooke is looking more like her Dad each and every week.


Ok, super clever marks go out to this smark.


Read into this as you will.

I criticize because I care. I did enjoy the show. I wouldn’t watch if I didn’t love this shit.

[caption id=”” align=”alignright” width=”160” caption=”Hey, it IS Friday the 13th, too.”][/caption]Yes, it’s the “Go Home” show for Money in the Bank this Sunday on PPV. And the whole damn product revolves around one thing… not the laptop, nor the Smackdown GM getting his Christmas Wish granted with the ability to speak (even though he was over in December…. shh! We are supposed to forget that!).

BWF RADIO INVADED WONDERPOD TODAY! CHECK THIS OUT NOW! Wonderpod Episode 118 A challenge has been issued, Jabronis! iTunes, archive.org, article and stream.

Yes, one character seems to have taken over in a illogical way. No, not Double A (that’s the “good” product). We’re one year out from the “Summer of Punk II” shtick. Wow. This is not your Ten Year Old’s WWE. RIght Mr. Cena?

Oh yeah, remember that Zach Ryder guy? No? Me neither, but it appears he is the GM for Smackdown. Turns out the computer is more popular in the WWE’s opinion. YAWN. Oh well, here’s the magical picture part of the review and the “hopping” reference:


'Nuff said, let's hop to it, shall we?

I watch, write, suffer, and succumb to this show, yet have to remind myself of what happened only minutes after each episode. That is how G’s Smackdown reviews work. This is not a play-by-play recap, there’s enough of those online. This is a highly-opinionated take of the show in question.

-Will I be watching this PPV on Sunday? Fuck no. I’m getting stupid with my boys/girls at our annual “Stampede Retardness” event (we can’t spell correctly, that’s how retarded we get). So I turn this question of a Go Home show over to another more experienced member of the IWC to answer. An adopted son of the home of the Calgary Stampede, Mr. Lance Storm. Let’s get serious for a moment. Mr. Storm what’s your take on the current state of the WWE?

Disclaimer: I will probably enjoy the Smackdown MitB match, and will of course not illegally stream it. That would be wrong, and theft. Don’t steal, kids! That’s my job.

- A little clip package of Zach Ryder starts the show, explaining how he got this GM spot and shilling his Youtube success and Twitter handle. Lillian Garcia introduces him, and he makes his way down to the ring. Ryder doesn’t get much in until Alberto Del Rio comes out and runs him down for calling himself the Internet Champion of the World…. Del Rio will become the real world champion. Ryder books him against…

Charles Barkley @G: “Wait, you’re telling me that the TNA show we used to review is now better than the WWE, but the channel got dropped by Viacom so most fans are stuck with this turrible product? Ha ha, sure G, and white boys can play basketball too.”

G @Charles Barkley: “Well first, I reviewed the Impact product, you usually just ended up in jail. Secondly, yes, that is precisely what I’m telling you.”

- * Alberto Del Rio vs. Sin Cara. To compensate for the lack of the trampoline, Sin Cara baseball slides into the ring, runs at the opposite middle ropes and does his somersault deal off of it. In a different era, when the black lighting effect shines above the ring, do you think Ricardo Rodriguez would have a bunch of white spots appear on his suit? I’m not insinuating anything, just thinking a la McMahon. Come on, this is the guy who originally wanted Kane in See No Evil to have a 3 foot penis in a masturbation scene. Just saying. Anyways, Del Rio’s initial domination is turned sour as the lucha picks up steam before our first commerical:

[youtube ELvRWY4uQtI]
Farley on the brain, since Heath Farley appeared on Impact this week…

- And we’re back… Del Rio is back in control, and is methodically working the little man down with submissions and humiliation spots. After a kind of boring chunk of time, Sin Cara finally gets his steam but misses a high risk top rope 180 splash allowing Del Rio to submit him with an armbar.

- We get a bunch of fan videos from Tout. Great, this will fill one hour of RAW when it goes to three hours.

- Zach is congratulated by Teddy Long, but then Big Show tells him he sucks and Khali enters the shot and he is announced as the opponent. Then Khali does the “Woo Woo Woo, You Know It.” Guess one match I am FFW’ing through later? Can you?

Been stalking the dude who invented MySpace on Google + for a while.  He takes cool photos, turns out he also likes the educational merits of the Assassin's Creed series like myself.  Cool!

- * Darren Young vs. Primo. I am literally reminded of these guys having a match 3 weeks ago, and then Primo punking out them back stage as Rosa Mendez shrieked some inane babble. AW rocks his introduction on his Britany Spears microphone of the PPs. His audio is kind of buried in the audience noise and entrance music. Epico and Primo are wearing what appear to be bibs. I guess they just came from Red Lobster? Mendez gets the hard camera side, but AW is on a live microphone hollering at his team to “get this money” and a funny spot when Darren Young gets a near fall on Primo where AW claims, “This beat down is brought to you by All World Productions and Darren Young! Come on Darren, get that money!” AW is much more enjoyable and is reminding me more of Jimmy Hart more than ever. Young dominates most of the match, and he and AW play off each other fantastically. Primo attempts a Backcracker, but Young hangs on! Young gets school boyed!!! PRIMO WINS! This is a great matchup, continuing the rivalry, and truly expanding what the AW gimmick is all about. Thumbs up here!

Truer words were never spoken… evolve WWE, because I’m almost done.

- 1000th moment is Edge on April 11, 2011 retiring due to neck injuries. I think that was a good choice, because it was very significant. Dude retired as a champion, and call me Canadian because I teared up a little that Monday.

- Ryder is talking to Sheamus about having a show to run, and Jericho enter and calls this thing a train wreck. I disagree Jericho, last Monday was a fucking train wreck. Sheamus steps up, so Ryder makes a match.


Dave’s right, you know.

- * Christian and Santino Marella vs. Dolph Ziggler and Cody Rhodes. It’s pretty noticeable that Ziggler is letting his blonde hair dyejob fade out. Read into that as you will. This looks like it could have some legs (but wouldn’t mind seeing this turn into a sledge hockey match either, and in all honesty check it out some time. Looks like fun for me, able-bodied or not. Takes some serious upper body strength. I watched a ton of it during the 2010 Winter Olympics).

- Anyways, Santino and Ziggler start us off with Ziggler shaking his head at the US Champ. But one should not underestimate the somovagun. An early tag brings Christian into the bout, as the heeltastic isolation story is told. At one point, Rhodes puts Christian in a ten second delayed slam. Always love that spot. Santino gets the hot tag and hits his usual routine with the splits, the diving headbutt, and goes to set up the Cobra… BUT NO! Rhodes delays this, Christian takes him to the outside and a recovered Ziggler hits the Zig-Zag and pins Santino for the win!


Source

- Up next is “The Love Triangle” between A.J. and some other guys. Can’t remember who those jabroni’s are.


Eco-friendly.

- Charlie Sheen is still advertized as the Social Ambassador for the 1000th RAW. We’ll see about that, and we’ll be talking about it on BWF Radio Episode 31 this Sunday! Then we get the clip package of the Punk/Bryan/AJ stuff and some laptop GM bits. Not a fuck was given that night by me…. not one. Well, that’s a lie… there was one thing I really enjoyed, and here is both an animated gif and retort as to what it was here:


Chael Sonnen was dissected in the second round by Anderson Silva last Saturday. Some might say this spot that occurred on RAW was a slight nod to that. It wouldn’t shock me, considering Chael is tight with Punk and consults Steve Austin as how to react. The dirty dirt sheets report that the WWE has interest in Sonnen. I’d like to see that. The dude can cut a promo, even when he isn’t quoting Superstar Billy Graham.

- * Big Show vs. The Great Khali. I told you I would not watch this garbage unless on FFW. And even then it’s pretty terrible. Meh. Skip this, don’t waste your time. Big Show KO’s him in under a minute. Did I mention the Wonderpod Episode 118”>BWF are talking Mike Tyson’s Punch Out on Wonderpod #118 this week?


I beg to differ, sir. ‘Round these parts, Khali is mediocre.

- Ugghh.. G gets distracted by things for 45 minutes…. Dammit. TNA is better. How did that happen, again?

- Tagteam titles on Youtube before the PPV. Non-title? Not watching.

- * Ryback vs. Tyler Reks w/Kurt Hawkins. I think Cole called Ryback’s finish “The March of the Competition”? Reks gets on the microphone and tells us he’ll what done that his partner couldn’t do. Sure, buddy. Both of you are getting double slammed on the PPV unannounced. Reks almost gets an offensive punch strike combination in… only to fucked up. First time ever, an outside competitor smashing a cane into Ryback’s face. Hawkins of course. Not enough, as Ryback puts him away. But we did see some actually “competition” between the two. Ryback is slightly leveled down in this bout with less hitpoints, stamina, defence, strength, and mana. Dude still eats the guy, though.

The WWE needs an “out,” like Q on Star Trek: The Next Generation, every show that jumps the shark needs an “out” of crappy story lines…. right, The Great Gazoo?

- 1000th RAW moment - Host Hugh Jackman discusses his RAW celebrity host spot. True, dude was in the backstage and immediately went up to the Brooklyn Brawler for an autograph… Too-tall-Wolverine gets a pass (it was good, and he did change my tune about his casting as Wolvie).

Logo
The_Great_Gazoo_65 @G: “If the shoe fits, Dum Dum!”

G @The_Great_Gazoo_65: “Now all we need is, is an out of this A.J. storyline that pulled “The Fonz” a couple weeks back…”

- More Tout bullshit. Don’t care. FFW.

- * Damien Sandow vs. Justin Gabriel. Being highly touted, Gabriel “Ex-Werewolf” is already in the ring. Tout takes precedence… Sandow enters gloriously. I smell a squash… Sandow does a new charisma move on fallen Gabriel with an arm swirl elbow drop. Sandow hits his finisher in about 2 minutes,

- Hornswoggle GM reveal clips from RAW… FFW… angry again.


As easy as it is to rip on Vince Russo, the CURRENT team of writers (see: VKM) thought Hornswoggle was the ideal choice for the anonymous RAW GM.

- Did I Know? “In 1993, Kofi Kingston, The Miz, and CM Punk were still in middle school.” It’s not even fun making fun of the “facts” anymore.

- * Sheamus vs. Chris Jericho - Sheamus enters first. Jericho “jackets” it up…. main event, next. Fucking ads…

[youtube kFkk6ox_1Ow]
This one is better. DUKE!

- This is a match that is about trading spots. Both men do damage and set up minor signiture moves for the first segment… decent so far. Jericho manhandles Sheamus during the break, we’re told. But of course, as we return, the pale one gets his attack on, hair did, etc. Exhaustion sets in, and the men get more careless, as Jericho lands a mid rope launched drop kick and a hard-camera Lionsault. Sheamus gets some steam back, looks for a Celtic Cross, NO! Walls of Jericho! Rope break… White Noise attempt into another Walls of Jericho! Middle of the ring face crawl… drag back… Hulk up to the rope! Sheamus breaks the hold and hits the White Noise! NO PIN. More finisher missed spots… ok this match is watchable, no doubt…. Sheamus pulls himself from the seated position on the canvas to the top rope only to eat a Code Breaker! DUDE! Sheamus pulls himself up after much abuse as an angry Jericho yell at him…. Y2J charges, right into a sick looking Brogue Kick, and wins the match. God Bless you Chris Jericho, you helped Sheamus look important and gave us a great match as a result!

- We’re not done. Post match Del Rio comes out and assaults the worn Sheamus, and dangles him off the entrance ramp side in an armbar.

I criticize because I care. I did enjoy the show. I wouldn’t watch if I didn’t love this shit.
