Covering professional wrestling can be hard if your job consists of providing play-by-play for Raw or any of the other WWE content for that matter. Some of the stuff that goes through my head shouldn’t be plastered all over the internet for anyone to see. BUT A wise man once said, “Fuck it, we’ll do it live!” Welcome to “Diary Of A Mad Wrestling Fan” staring me, SAMUEL L. JACKSON! WHAT! I’M NOT YELLING, THAT’S JUST HOW I TALK! Err I mean, Lovell “I’m the CEO of this company so I can write about whatever I want, so don’t @ me” Porter. Follow me on my journey as I fumble through all of your favorite live shows!
8:00 PM- I have to say… this Superstar shake-up thing is silly. Why not have a draft with picks and arguing and so forth. This seemingly random selection shit is silly. They go out of their way to over explain angles but put little to no effort into the presentation of the “shake-up”. This stuff was only interesting when Ric Flair and Vince McMahon were in charge of Raw and Smackdown. Them having to go out on the stage and make picks was great TV. We need more, damn it!!! Mooooore!
8:04 PM- I think the WWE wants the crowd to chant CM Punk. Why else would they have Shane running around saying he is the best in the world.
8:05 PM- We are five minutes in and so far nothing has happened. As you can see, I’m a super patient we’ll adjust adult. 😂 Jokes aside, It would be super dope if they could get to the damn point. Last week was lackluster. Gotta give the fans something to be excited about.
8:08 PM- THERE WE GO! Shane talked shit about Miz and Miz is the first person to be moved to Raw. Miz should have gone Roadhouse on Shane. Screw it. FINISH HIM!!
8:10 PM- I am not sure Miz needed to be moved to Raw. He is in the middle of a pretty hot angle with Shane. What happens now? Also, if they treated this like an actual draft they could have used Shane trading Miz to Raw as part of the angle… but whatever. This is pro wrestling. Logic doesn’t apply.
8:12 PM- It’s like Ricochet and Aleister Black are allergic to having singles matches on Raw. It’s always tag matches or 17 person tag matches. It’s just f’n weird.
8:25 PM- So… someone needs to have a talk with Vince. The fuck is the “Viking Experience”? What’s wrong with “War Raiders” or “War Machine”? Also, aren’t they fucking NXT tag champions? The hell is going on here? Do not pass go. Yes, I smell toast. Someone help me! I think I’m having a stroke.
8:29 PM- This is really going to cause me to have an aneurysm. Why are the Street Profits still in NXT? How about the Undisputed Era? I like the War Raiders… err the Viking Experience, but this makes literally no sense. Also, I’m not sure the Viking thing is going to work on Raw… unless…
8:34 PM- I love Cedric Alexander but I don’t want him on RAW. He has Smackdown written all over him. I feel like he may get lost in the shuffle on Monday nights. IDK. What do you all think? Let me know in the comments section.
8:43 PM- So Andrade is on Raw now… Weird Flex, but Ok Vince. Raw is super crowded. Unless they are going to gut the upper card on Raw and send a bunch of folks to Smackdown. That never happens though.
8:58 PM- I have to say, Andrade vs. Finn Bálor was the most fun I have had watching a match on Raw in a long time.
