Monday Afternoon Post Money in the Bank Thoughts


PEN15 Facebook Page

I tried creating a Facebook page. Like, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Chris Jericho

It should be said that Jericho’s many returns have rarely failed to excite. Even the rather lame mini-feud with Fandango made the most of the dancing gimmick and the star presence of the lead vocalist of Fozzy. Then again there has been a trend of the returns meaning less and less every time.

In 2007, the “Save Us Y2J” campaign was a bit of a flub, as it didn’t amount to much to start. The excitement was high, but we all knew Jericho wasn’t about to unseat Orton as WWE Champion, making it almost a lame duck angle. It led to JBL vs Jericho, which brought JBL back to the ring, so there was nothing wrong with that. But until the Ric Flair involved heel turn on Shawn Michaels, it felt like a return without purpose – something we’ve been programmed to think is the sole reason of anything Jericho does. Whether it’s his interviews or his books, more than anymore he portrays the fact that he’ll only return when it means something. Perhaps the goal was for him to just make an impression in early 2008 only to turn into the stoic heel Jericho later that year (which I do agree that the Miz ripped off later on in 2010). If that’s the case, well done on all accounts. I just don’t believe it, and think it was just happenstance.

Then after his departure in 2010, he came back in early 2012 to basically chase CM Punk in what could have been a rather solid angle. The problem I had wasn’t with the execution nor the actual angle, but it was again predictable that Jericho was in no way threatening to become WWE Champion, and the matches weren’t in the main event position, and therefore squandered in the effort to catapult CM Punk as the next possible megastar.

He left and returned a couple of times, with the importance dropping lower and lower each time, especially the Fandango feud.

So, in 2014, what does Jericho really have to offer after a rather shoddy win/loss record and minimal shock factor after this umpteenth return?

A whole lot.
The fact is that Jericho’s versatility is almost unmatched, and we’re most likely about to see a different side of the man that we’ve never seen before. I credit Mick Foley for pointing it all out, but Jericho has never really dealt with an evil heel like Bray Wyatt. Jericho has dealt with challenges like Kane back in 2000 when he was a monster, but it was after he’d been humanized.

Also, it must be noted that while the angles upon Jericho’s returns were never blockbuster money making successes (CM Punk, Fandango…etc.), they tend to be among the best work of his opponent’s careers. That’s a lofty goal considering how well the Cena vs Wyatt angle was for the most part (results aside, I think it’s a unanimous decision that the storyline was entertaining).

I think Jericho’s return is a big one, and an important one in the grand scheme of WWE. Not only does it involve one of the biggest heel prospects in the company, but it involves a possible rejuvenation of a former WrestleMania headliner. Knock The Miz all you like, but there’s still gas in the engine that should be used before he’s put out to pasture. Jericho is one of the best people to put across the ring from him.

Besides, it could lead to either Jericho or the Miz joining the Wyatts. And that works too.

Roman Reigns

Anyone who has tuned into the Tuesday Night Titans LOPradio podcast recently has heard XanMan and me talk about how disinterested we are in the current Roman Reigns push. Last week in my Live Raw Blog, I ended the piece with a few paragraphs on the subject, which I’d like to repeat for you:


This push proves WWE is completely out of touch with reality. I am not disputing how over he is, and how strong his look is. My problem is that he’s going to sink as soon as he’s out there alone. Every single special appearance of Reigns has been with the ring filled with guys that can protect him from looking green. This trend is apparently going to continue until he’s ready to compete on his own. In theory, that’s great, but the problem is that he’s too high on the card to have a lot of room to improve. He’s already in the ring with the elite, so his time to find his stride is very very short.

And this push is thankfully partially natural. The problem is how many guys are being ignored who are getting over even more organically, and being held aside so that Reigns can flounder.

I hope he proves me wrong, but the facts are clear: he can’t wrestle. This isn’t a Great Khali push where he only needs to do the 3 things he can do and look powerful doing it. This is a push to being the new face of the company; he needs to back up his actions.

The Universe will turn on him if he can’t bring it in the ring. Look what happened to Cena in 2005. Reigns also can’t back it up on the mic.

This is going to be very tricky.


Now I’d like to elaborate on this just a bit.

There are a couple of ways WWE can go with this. Whether I like it or not, WWE is obviously moving forward with the idea that Roman Reigns is the next Cena. I am firmly confident that he’ll never reach that level, but I do think that the effort can and should be made as long as everyone in the company understands that if he doesn’t reach that top echelon, it does not mean he or the push was a failure.

XanMan correctly pointed out to me that the push, as forced and unorganic as it has been, is very identical to what launched Batista to superstardom. If everyone understands that this super push of having Roman defeat Orton, HHH, and possibly Lesnar along the way to becoming the WWE Champion at WrestleMania leads to him being another Animal, then there’s no harm done. Batista was in no way ready for his push in 2005 either, and showed just as much greenness and lack of skills as Roman Reigns does at this point. Batista couldn’t work a promo, nor was he known for his in ring abilities. I’d even go as far as saying he had even less upside than Roman does due to his age at the time of being near 40 years old and all around lack of mobility with his size.

With the goal of finding a new Batista, someone who can be at the top of the card, but not THE guy, Roman Reigns and WWE would have very understandable aspirations.

The problem is the apparent expectation that he’ll be the next star to lead the company similarly to Cena, Austin, or The Rock. There’s absolutely no way he can reach that level. In fact, I see him having more of a future as heel at the top of the card, even though he’s working his moveset to be very face friendly with the pop timing down pat. He can be the arrogant beast for the next Cena to overcome in a couple of years.

The worse case scenario is that he turns into … well, I’ll let LOP poster and sometimes column writer “Sierra Bravo” explain here:

For another perspective on Roman Reigns, or rather the individuals in The Shield and their break up:

Time will tell, and I don’t want to give off the impression of impending doom. I just worry that too much is expected from a guy who isn’t quite ready for it all. If expectations were slightly more reasonable, this would be much easier to swallow.

Brock Lesnar as WWE Champion

A very puzzling scenario seems to be taking place in WWE these days. If anyone is not predicting John Cena walks out of Battleground unscathed and with the titles still around his waist (or neck), you need to get off the internet immediately. It seems to be painfully obvious that Cena will be walking into SummerSlam to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Brock Lesnar. Whether Brock is the Plan B or not, there’s very little reason to not expect Brock to be champion sometime before WrestleMania.

I think the logical and understandable prediction was that he’d be showing up around the Royal Rumble to win the championship, and defend at Elimination Chamber and/or WrestleMania 31. It would just make sense as there’s no way Brock can appear as often as a WWE Champion is expected to, so save him for the important dates during the Road to WrestleMania.

Instead, it looks like he’ll be the draw to keep subscribers on the WWE Network during the SummerSlam and Night of Champions season.

This is both intriguing and troublesome.

It is unlikely Brock walks out of SummerSlam without the titles, but his dates are limited. Are we to expect Brock will defend on 2-3 PPVs in a row, and then disappear until the Road to WrestleMania?

It’s an interesting ordeal WWE is faced with. They might want to rush Brock’s date in the next few months, and ultra push someone like Roman Reigns to unseat him at an event like Survivor Series as his crowning moment. Or, they might be renegotiating the deal with Brock in an effort to have him appear more often.

I won’t pretend to know the right answer, but I hope WWE either has a plan or are open to loosening the purse strings to have Brock defend more than a couple of times in the next 7 months.

Tuesday Night Titans

Once again, XanMan and myself put together another show on Saturday afternoon. We did not air last week’s episode due to a technical error where my recording program seemed to clip a majority of the show. So, we reviewed the same ECW show to stay in order, while moving onto a new main topic of discussing Roman Reigns and the rumored match ups for SummerSlam.

Here are the dailymotion videos of the ECW show, followed by a link to the podcast.


Previews


From WWE.com
Just days after the United States celebrated Independence Day, the fireworks continue as WWE heads to The Great White North for Raw. In breaking news, WWE.com has learned that Bret “Hit Man” Hart will be in Montreal tonight! Plus, WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena battles Seth Rollins while Canada’s own Chris Jericho prepares to go one-on-one against the brash and egotistical Miz. What else can the WWE Universe expect less than two weeks before WWE Battleground? WWE.com has some theories.

1. Will the return of Bret Hart turn Raw upside-down?
Ever since WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hitman” Hart tweeted that he will be on Raw tonight in Montreal at 8/7 CT on USA Network, both social media and the WWE locker room have been clamoring for the return of The Excellence of Execution!
But what will the five-time WWE Champion bring to an already turbulent Monday night atmosphere, in the same city that once played host to one of his most controversial professional moments?
Could Hart choose to confront The Authority about their recent involvement in the WWE World Heavyweight Title picture? While WWE COO Triple H might not approve of such interference from his once-heated adversary, no one could deny that such a confrontation would be “best for business.” Perhaps he will take the opportunity to play a part in in Hart Family Dudgeon alumni Chris Jericho’s match with the outspoken Miz, a Superstar who Hart definitely has had issues with in the past.
No matter what happens, the mere fact that Bret Hart is stepping back into the Raw ring in Canada makes tonight’s show must-see, all by itself.

2. The Y2J problem
Oh, hey Miz. We totally missed you. Fresh from the set of WWE Studios’ “The Marine 4: Moving Target,” the egotistical Awesome One returned to WWE last Monday with the bombast one might expect from, well, Chris Jericho, who also happened to roll through Raw to give us all a glimpse of that endlessly cool light-up jacket of his. Jericho made short work of the self-professed “A-Lister,” much to the delight of the WWE Universe, but Y2J’s smile soon faded when he faced a three-on-one attack by The Wyatt Family.
The Wyatts continued to target Jericho on SmackDown, warning The Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla to “save” himself. On Raw, Jericho will compete in a WWE ring for the first time in nearly a year against a vengeful Miz. Will The Eater of Worlds and his sinister disciples make their presence known during this anticipated encounter?

3. More ‘Money,’ more problems
Just one night after John Cena became a 15-time World Champion at Money in the Bank, Seth Rollins nearly brought Triple H’s “Plan B” into action, attempting to cash in on The Champ after Cena suffered a horrific assault by Kane. The Cenation leader’s salvation came in the oh-so-unlikely form of Dean Ambrose, who ambushed his former “brother” before Rollins’ WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match against Cena could begin.
Despite that failed attempt, Rollins remains Mr. Money in the Bank, and will continue to stalk Cena in pursuit of WWE’s grandest prize. However, just as Rollins forces The Champ to keep his head on a swivel, so, too, does The Lunatic Fringe aim to unsettle his onetime comrade. Whenever Rollins attempts to cash in his Money in the Bank contract, Ambrose has vowed to be there to prevent it.
Tonight on Raw, Rollins once again finds himself in close proximity to Cena’s title when he goes up against The Champ in a one-on-one clash. Will the strategist use his contract to transform this non-title encounter into a WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match? If so, how will Ambrose find a way to factor himself into the equation?

4. What’s Paige’s endgame?

Mutual Respect?

The 1102nd edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the Bell Centre in the infamous WWE city of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. For better or for worse, one of the legendary names synonymous with Montreal, not to mention the country of Canada, is WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hitman” Hart and, as tweeted out by “The Excellence of Execution” himself, “The Hitman” will be making a special appearance on RAW! What will the Hall of Famer have to say to the WWE fans? How will Bret Hart get involved in the Monday night proceedings?

After an Authority-orchestrated attempt at cashing in Money-in-the-Bank on John Cena failed for “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” Seth Rollins, thanks to interference from Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, the Money-in-the-Bank contract holder will go one-on-one with the man he nearly cashed in on last week, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion as Seth Rollins faces John Cena in a non-title match! With WWE COO Triple H, Randy Orton, & Kane no doubt waiting in the wings, will Seth Rollins attempt another cash-in on RAW? What roles will Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns play?

Also, after The Miz’s return to WWE was upstaged by Chris Jericho’s even grander return last week, the six-time former World Champion left the self-proclaimed “movie star” lying with the Codebreaker on two different occasions. Now, on this week’s RAW, Chris Jericho will compete in his first match in nearly a year as “Y2J” goes one-on-one with The Miz on RAW!

  • Alberto Del Rio (with Fandango) def. Dolph Ziggler by pin following a kick to the face.
  • Non-Title: Sheamus def. Damien Sandow by pin following the Brogue Kick.

Detailed Results

Two weeks before he joins Randy Orton, Kane, and WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena in a Fatal 4-Way Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Title at Battleground, RAW kicks off with Roman Reigns. Roman says that Triple H said that he was putting him in the Fatal 4-Way Match at Battleground because it was “best for business”, but Reigns says that the COO probably thought that Reigns could “neutralize” John Cena, which Roman says that he can. Roman continues, saying that Triple H might think that Kane can neutralize him, but Roman says that Kane cannot and Triple H thinks that Randy Orton will walk out as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Reigns says that he’s got a “hair trigger” and, unlike Randy Orton, he is not a “pawn” in The Authority’s game, telling everyone to “believe that”. Roman is then interrupted by the arrival of “The Devil’s Favorite Demon” Kane and, when Kane doesn’t speak, Roman asks if Kane is there on behalf of The Authority, who is not in the arena tonight. Reigns then calls Kane a “lap dog” before “correcting” himself, calling Kane “Randy Orton’s bitch”! This brings Kane down the ramp and Roman Reigns meets the monster halfway as a brawl breaks out between the two powerhouses. While Kane gains an early advantage, Roman Reigns would fight back, knocking Kane over the ringside barricade. However, “The Devil’s Favorite Demon” would battle back, bringing Roman back into the ringside area, sending Reigns face-first into the steel ring post. Kane then rolls Reigns into the ring, where he continues to stomp away at Roman. Referees then rush down to break up the brawl, but Kane grabs referee John Cone and drills the official with a chokeslam! This brings down several of WWE’s road agents, who manage to separate the two, but Roman Reigns breaks free, shoving road agent Jamie Noble down and delivering a Spear to Finlay! Kane then climbs on the ring apron, but he is caught with the Superman Punch by Roman Reigns! Roman Reigns is then the one left standing tall as Kane retreats from the ringside area.

The opening match of the night was a non-title rematch from Money-in-the-Bank as WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos faced The Wyatt Family’s Luke Harper & Erick Rowan on RAW. During the match, one of The Usos was prepared to deliver the Superfly Splash to Luke Harper, but Erick Rowan would shove the other Uso into the ring ropes on the outside, causing Uso to lose his balance and Harper would take advantage, hitting a sit-down powerbomb on Uso, but the other Uso breaks up the pin. Shortly after this, Erick Rowan takes one of The Usos out on the outside as Harper hits the other with the Discus Clothesline en route to picking up the win. After the match, one of The Usos complains to the referee that the Uso that was pinned was not the legal man, but the decision stands as Harper & Rowan keep their victory.

Backstage, Randy Orton confronts Kane, telling Kane that he has Kane’s back just like he knows that Kane will have his back at Battleground. Kane agrees, saying that, one way or the other, the WWE World Heavyweight Title is coming back to The Authority. “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” Seth Rollins then enters the picture, applauding Kane and Orton on their attitude, saying that, with The Authority not in the arena, it is “extra important” that they have each other’s backs and that is why, after one of them wins the title at Battleground, he will “think twice” about cashing in his contract. After Rollins exits, Randy Orton tells Kane that he is really starting to hate Rollins, but Kane says that it is not nearly as much as he hates Orton!

In a Divas match made by the absent Authority, Nikki Bella would go one-on-one with Alicia Fox and, per the orders of The Authority, both Divas would have one arm tied behind their backs. However, Alicia Fox would refuse to let the referee tie one arm behind her back as Alicia attacks the one-armed Nikki Bella, knocking Nikki out of the ring. Alicia then repeatedly smashes the head of Nikki Bella into the ringside barricade before rolling Nikki back into the ring and Nikki manages to get a slap in on Alicia Fox, but Alicia continues to pummel Nikki. Alicia then gets two energy drinks from under the ring, showering Nikki and the ring mat with the beverage before exiting the ring as the referee works to untie Nikki Bella.

“The Hero of the Russian Federation” was in action on RAW as “The Super Athlete” Rusev, with Lana in his corner, would go one-on-one with the high-flying veteran Rob Van Dam. While RVD would perfectly utilize his quickness to combat the power of Rusev, it would was a huge kick to the jaw of RVD that would allow Rusev to lock in the Accolade on “Mr. Monday Night”, making RVD tap out to pick up the win.

After Dean Ambrose got involved in The Authority’s business last week, playing a major part in running The Authority’s plan to have Seth Rollins cash in on John Cena for the title, “The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose would go one-on-one with one of the three challengers for the WWE World Heavyweight Title at Battleground, “The Viper” Randy Orton. The match would completely break down once Dean Ambrose starts tossing steel chairs in the ring, but Randy Orton would manage to avoid taking any damage from the steel, battling back against Ambrose on the outside. Orton would then send Ambrose’s injured shoulder into the steel ring post before planting Ambrose on the arena floor with the suspended DDT. “The Viper” would then slide back into the ring, but Ambrose would barely beat the ten-count back into the ring and, after nearly surprising Orton with a roll-up, Orton would strike with the RKO, pinning Ambrose to pick up the win.

With the newest addition to the Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal, Fandango, a guest on commentary, two of the other participants in the battle royal would face off as “The Show-Off” Dolph Ziggler went one-on-one with Alberto Del Rio. During the match, Fandango would stand on the announce table, drawing Dolph Ziggler’s attention long enough for Alberto Del Rio to deliver a kick straight to the face of Ziggler, pinning Dolph for the win.

WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler would make an in-ring appearance, saying that the last time that he was in Montreal, it didn’t look like he would ever be back, but thanks to WWE’s medical team and the local hospital, he is there today. Lawler then says that it is his honor to bring out the legendary Canadian hero and fellow WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hitman” Hart. “The Hitman” makes his way to the ring, shaking hands with “The King” before Lawler exits the ring. Bret says that, no matter what happened there in the past, it’s always great to be back in Montreal. The Hall of Famer then says that, if he could have just one more match, it would be in front of the “greatest fans in the world” in Montreal! Bret continues, saying that he’s getting a “rush” like when he was the WWE Champion, but the Hall of Famer is then interrupted by an impersonation of his former self as Damien Sandow comes out, dressed like “The Hitman”, and proclaims himself to be Bret “The Hitman” Sandhart. Sandhart says that being in Montreal, he is reminded of a “regret” that he has in his career and he is not talking about when he tapped out to his own submission hold or that he was so “embarrassed” that he “pretended” that it was an “elaborate screwjob”. Sandhart then refers to Canada as a “third world country” before saying that his biggest regret is not getting to share the ring with the greatest Superstar of all-time, Damien Sandow. Sandhart then tells Bret that he knows that talking has never been Bret’s strong suit, but Sandhart is then popped in the face with a right hand from the Hall of Famer as Sandhart falls out of the ring with Bret telling Sandhart that punching was his strong suit!

After greeting a former United States Champion in Bret Hart, reigning United States Champion Sheamus would go one-on-one with the man who just got decked by “The Hitman”, Damien Sandow, in a non-title match. In the end, it was Sheamus blasting Damien Sandow with the Brogue Kick, pinning the impersonator to pick up the win.

Last week on RAW, The Miz’s return to WWE was crushed by the grand return of “Y2J” Chris Jericho and, on this week’s RAW, the first Undisputed Champion in WWE history would compete on RAW for the first time in a year as Chris Jericho went one-on-one with The Miz. In the end, it was Chris Jericho punching The Miz right in his “money maker” before locking in the Walls of Jericho, making The Miz tap out to pick up the win. After the match, Bray Wyatt appears on the stage in his signature rocking chair, saying that Jericho cannot even “save” himself and that “actions scream eternities”. Bray continues, saying that Jericho can say whatever he needs to say, but he will hold those words against Jericho and the people that used to be called “Jerichoholics” are now his followers. Jericho then tells Bray to “please shut the hell up”, saying that he is going to come up there and beat Bray’s ass! Jericho then exits the ring with his sights set on Bray Wyatt, but Luke Harper & Erick Rowan then appear next to their leader, halting Jericho at ringside.

One week after losing the Divas Title to the returning AJ Lee, Paige would team with new Divas Champion AJ Lee to face The Funkadactyls, Cameron & Naomi, in tag team action. The story of the match would quickly become the dysfunction between Cameron & Naomi as Cameron would appear bored with the match, refusing to tag into the match until she was ready to accept the tag. However, when Cameron finally does get into the match, she is immediately hit with the Paige Turner by Paige, who pins Cameron to pick up the win for herself and AJ Lee. After the match, Naomi and Cameron would get in each other’s face and the long-standing team would implode ad Naomi and Cameron absolutely try to tear each other apart in a vicious brawl that is finally broken up by the referee.

After being assaulted by Cesaro on last week’s RAW, Kofi Kingston would be out for revenge as Kofi went one-on-one with “The King of Swing” Cesaro, with Paul Heyman in his corner. During the match, Kofi Kingston would surprise Cesaro with a roll-up, defeating Cesaro for the second week in a row. After the match, Cesaro would look to administer another assault on Kofi, but Big E would refuse to let that happen as the powerhouse makes the save for Kofi, forcing Cesaro to retreat.

The self-proclaimed “inspirational” Bo Dallas was in action on RAW as Bo Dallas would go one-on-one with El Torito, with Diego in his corner. During the match, Bo Dallas would shove Diego into the steel steps on the outside. Moments later, Bo Dallas would hit the Bo Dog on El Torito, pinning the mini-bull for the win.

Then it was time for the main event as, one week after he nearly lost the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in an Authority-orchestrated Money-in-the-Bank cash-in attempt, WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena would go one-on-one with “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” Seth Rollins in a non-title match. During the match, John Cena would have Seth Rollins locked in the STF, but the arrival of Kane would make John Cena release the hold. Then, with Cena’s focus on Kane, Randy Orton would attack John Cena from behind before Orton and Kane stomp away at the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Roman Reigns then makes the save, dropping Kane with the Superman Punch on his way to the ring before entering the ring and leveling Randy Orton with the Superman Punch, as well. Seth Rollins then smashes Roman Reigns in the back of the head with the Money-in-the-Bank briefcase before Rollins blasts Cena with the briefcase! Rollins then calls for a referee as he looks to cash in his Money-in-the-Bank contract, but before the cash-in could be made official, Dean Ambrose attacks Seth Rollins and the two men brawl to the back. Meanwhile, in the ring, Randy Orton attempts to prey on a helpless John Cena, but “The Champ” springs up, hitting Randy Orton with the Attitude Adjustment! Kane then slides into the ring, grabbing Cena by the throat, but Roman Reigns would blast Kane with the Spear! Cena then pulls himself to his feet before Roman Reigns raises the hand of the champion, looking at Cena and smiling. Cena then responds by raising the hand of Roman Reigns before the two men stare each other down, both smiling and nodding their approval of each other.
