Ok so Kurt was super over in his TLC return match so we definitely need Stephanie to come out and bury him

Yeah, Raw was so much easier to watch with no Authority. Well I guess it was inevitable she would return

In storyline terms, Raw was embarrassed last week. She should be pissed.

 

Also, I guess those Nia Jax rumors were a bit overblown, huh?

I admit I laughed at Bo getting the “hey he’s still alive” pop when he showed up with Miz.

Matt Hardy is so immobile its like Miz is trying to carry a log around the ring. He should just retire.

On the bright side, I legit marked out seeing Chad 2 Badd & Tex Ferguson. And Drew Gulak is a national treasure.

I actually thought they might be building to Bryan as captain of Team SD until the lights went out and he was on the phone with Brie and then, of course, Kane shows up to kill him.  I don't know if that's writing him off of tv, and if it was it was well done, because that's literally the first time he's been bumped since he was forced to retire.  And, who was the last guy he faced?  Kane.  And it was a well done pre-tape because it legit looked like Kane gave him the chokeslam, when of course he really didn't.

 

I also thought the pre-tape stuff with the Miz and entourage and then Braun was well done.

 

And back to Kane, I don't mind him coming back and killing people because it's ultimately him putting over Braun (I think and hope that's the case) and it's probably his last run.  And really, Kane has had a great WWF/WWE career, I know some people are sick of him, but in kayfabe he's always been portrayed as a total monster killer, so there is no shame ore hurt in guys losing to him.  I actually really liked what they did with him on RAW.  My only complaints were it looked like he was spiking dudes on their heads when he did the tombstone.......and then that story wise Kane really should have showed up to attack Braun at the end........but I also don't hate that they are saving it

Oh yea, I loved that "Trick or Street" match.  It was stupid and silly, but it was so much fun.  I had legit LOL moments watching it

Kane and Taker have always been very good at making it look like they kill dudes with their Tombstones, but when you go back and rewatch it they don’t come anywhere close to making contact.

I know Kane has always been safe with it and hasn't hurt anyone that I'm aware of, but for whatever reason when he did it to Rollins and Ambrose and the one on the stage they weren't as safe looking as I'm used to seeing from him.  Maybe that's just me, but it seems like he's always been good at taking it on his knees and protecting the head, and on these it seemed like the head was dangerously close to taking at least half the impact

 

but again, maybe that's just me and I need to go back and rewatch

I remember Kane not using the Tombstone quite a while and it being to issues with his knees. Am i right there or totally off? If so, why is he using it again?

Think you are right, recall hearing something similar. It's probably because he's working much of a lighter schedule these days/been off the road for months so they might be less of an issue? Especially as this is *probably* his last real run so also prepared to just suck it up as it's a move that's always over?*

 

*wishful thinking

People are mad about how hard Kane is getting pushed but he's only getting pushed that hard so he can be fed to Braun. Do the people who think Braun should be The Guy instead of Roman not realize that if you give Braun the title then every challenger is going to have to get pushed as hard as Kane is right now before their title match?

I think the issue is more "why the fuck is Kane the one getting the shot at Braun" rather than not understanding a challenger needs built up.

"Building up" a 50 year old guy who's been pushed on TV for 20 years as a top guy/monster. Yeah, right, that's really needed... :rolleyes:

He has been gone for a while so there would be a need to reestablish him, but destroying most of the upper midcard to do it seems like overkill.

There's a discussion on the F4W board about Alexa Bliss. I hardly ever watch now, but what they're saying matches up with my view from afar. She's a heel champion who hardly ever gets upstaged in promo battles or has to resort to cheating to win big matches. There's the occasional countout/DQ/screwjob finish, but then she wins the blowoff match clean. Her programs consist of her calling her opponents losers and then being proven right. It'd be one thing if she were having great matches along the way. But she's a middling worker at best, so it's just a bummer all around.
