Title: Go Home Raw for SummerSlam
Post by: KoppoKick on August 12, 2013, 08:54:05 PM
Epic botched finish by the ref during the mixed tag match.  One of the worst you will ever see.

And they have ruined Bryan/Cena by making HHH the referee. I guess Bryan was getting cheered too much, had to get some of that sweet heat for himself.

They were ruining it before that by making it clear that it wasn't about Bryan beating Cena, but about whether The McMahons approve of who is WWE Champion.

My interest in the PPV dropped by 50%.  I don't know if I want to buy it now, tbh.

That Cena/Bryan Promo was beyond awesome.... Then HHH had to come out to remind you that McMahons are more important. And then it gets followed up by that horrid Fandango/Truth segment.

I read a recap. Fuck. The WWE... they just cannot fucking help themselves. Fuck.


Also, in the recap (the With Leather recap), it says something about Natalya fucking up the finish to her match. Anyone want to bet on whether that entire sequence of events was planned so that it can be used as a storyline for Total Divas? I'd be shocked if we don't see Stephanie scold Natty about that shit on an upcoming show.

I don't know how Nattie fucked that up. She had AJ in the Sharpshooter and AJ was tapping, but it was the official that was off looking at the pansies or something. He totally blew it.

Oh ok. I must have misread the quick result... I just thought they did something like that to set up a segment on Total Divas. Hell, it still may have been a setup.

Everyone is blaming the ref, which is pretty interesting, even the people who saw it.

I watched it before I heard of the fuck-up and this is what I saw:

Nattie puts on the sharpshooter. AJ is like 'ow dis hurts'. Then Nattie releases the hold. AJ starts to tap. The ref is like 'uhmmm'. There's awkwardness. Nattie goes to have her arms raised, like she's covering for the mistake. They repeat the finish.

So I watched it again and can confirm Nattie stops the move before AJ taps out.

Can you normally hear someone tapping out when you can't see them? Maybe someone gave the go-word.

It's not the ref.

So. My theory may be right after all.

Lost in all of this, is that AJ tapped out to a jobber right before Summerslam when she faces a real opponent. What the fuck was that all about?

I think that WWE is trolling fans of old school wrestling at this point, because let's be honest, after us there won't be any fans of old school wrestling.... but here's my theory.


They have the fuckin' champions lose almost every time they are on TV. There's no reason for this other than to say "Fuck you" to the fans. The only fans who care are fans of old school rassle. So, they're doing that as a "fuck you" to us.

Who knows if the buyrates will be lower now that HHH is the guest referee.

Of course, it will be blamed on Daniel Bryan becauz he dunest hav de WWE looke. Vince will then have Bryan do a midcard feud with somebody as punishment and/or turn Bryan heel again despite the crowds actually wanting to cheer Bryan.

You always have some fantasy cooked up about Vince burying someone.

SummerSlam may very well still be great, but the presence of HHH just makes me want to not miss Breaking Bad for it. Well, that and $65 dollars.

9 times out of 10, Vince buries the wrestlers that aren't his favorites. It's not a fantasy for me at all -- I really wish that Vince McMahon wasn't that petty.

It's not too hard to see. Look at who is at the top of the card and who shows up a lot -- Randy Orton, John Cena, and HHH. The crowd clearly want someone new to be pushed and not the 'same ol' guys' every week in the main event. Then when Vince McMahon finally caves in to the fans and gives them what they are asking for, there has to be a catch (look at CM Punk last year, Dolph Ziggler this year, and now Daniel Bryan). Daniel Bryan is now over and selling merch (which is honestly important in the WWE today) but that is despite Vince McMahon's efforts to bury him. The crowd wants to cheer Daniel Bryan and he should beat Cena without any screwiness attached.

The kicker about this is Vince tried to give the fans what he thought they should have (Ryback) and the crowd clearly rejected him.

Total Divas are on the god level now with Lesnar, Undertaker and HHH. Divas Title Divas aka Regular Divas are on the WWE title level

I did like how Triple H came to console DB and Cena, and Cena swatted Triple H's hand off his shoulder. Triple H probably docked Cena pay for that.


I wish someone would get pissed off and just shoot plaster Triple H in his dumb face, and break his Dark Crystal Elder sized nose.

It's not the ref.

Today's analysis from Jimmy Korderas:

Watched Monday's footage back & noticed a few things from "one of the best refs" in the biz. I will elaborate in several tweets. "Great Ref" was in right position, as Nattie released hold, AJ tapped almost right then & "Great Ref" DID call for the bell which did not ring! Then we have the deer in the headlights look. Reapplied Sharpshooter & finish. So, did "Great Ref" make the wrong call at 1st & was told in his earpiece to continue? Hmmmm! Either way, his indecision made the botch look 10x worse. But what do I know!

Title: Re: Go Home Raw for SummerSlam

Because Vince was going to pick himself as referee but Brad Maddox came down and begged for a second chance. Vince grilled him about being "impartial" and all this and Maddox agreed but HHH saw it was all bullshit and came down to the ring and made himself the ref.
