JC’s Top Rope Report: The RAW Truth Review For 7.28.14

With All This Talk of Victimizing, Someone Better Call Detective Benson

After a recap of last week’s important events, John Cena came out. Cena said normally he would share in the crowd’s enthusiasm, but last week Plan C was what he hoped it wouldn’t be, and that is Brock Lesnar. Cena said that The Authority wants the WWE Title off of him so badly that they hired a mercenary to take it off him. Cena said there were boos and cheers, because quite frankly some of the WWE Universe wants to see Brock Lesnar beat the hell out of him. Cena said Brock Lesnar is the most devastating force in the WWE. He destroys who he wants, when he wants. Cena said Paul Heyman was right about something: At SummerSlam, he will get the beating of a lifetime. He’s going to get his ass kicked. But he won’t lay down. He will fight, and go to SummerSlam and beat Brock Lesnar just like he did in 2012. Cena said he doesn’t want to know what happens to the WWE Title if Brock gets it. Brock does what he wants, when he wants. And he doesn’t know who else can stop him.

My Thoughts: WWE RAW 7.28.14 (John Cena, Chris Jericho, Brie Bella, Stephanie McMahon)

WWE Raw Header - 2014

 

#1~ John Cena was in typical form coming off of the announcement of who his opponent is at SummerSlam. It was quintessential “Let’s Go Team & Never Give Up!” that we always get when Cena has a big opponent to face. The Cesaro interruption was a great few seconds until I remembered that he’s been the “jobber to the stars” the past few months. It’s as if the WWE know they have something special with Cesaro but have no idea how to handle him.

Eight Superstar Tournament: Arm Chair Booking A First Time Champion

The Midcard 15 Minutes Logo

 

John Cena and Brock Lesnar are going to headline Summerslam and more than likely have their blow off match the following month for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and while I am currently fine with that situation since Daniel Bryan’s health continues to be a major concern (I’ve been fearing the worst since news first broke) the next champion should not only be a first timer but should be put over on a big time stage. Once Cena and Lesnar’s feud blows over the Royal Rumble should be right around the corner. I was going to put together a 16 man tournament to decide who should face Brock Lesnar at the 2015 Royal Rumble but there would be too many lower card guys on the list that it wouldn’t be nearly as fun as just cutting it right down to an ‘Elite Eight’ if you would. The eight WWE Superstars selected for my arm chair booking tournament are Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Bad News Barrett, Bray Wyatt, Big E, Cesaro and Bo Dallas.

JC’s Top Rope Report: Why Brock Lesnar As WWE Champ Is Best For Business

JC Top Rope Logo

We are only a few weeks away from the Brock Lesnar/John Cena match at SummerSlam. The match itself should be just as good as the first one. And when you add in Paul Heyman cutting Brock Lesnar’s promos for him this time around, and being able to sell the match itself, the build should be a little better.

10 Thoughts: TNA Impact 7.24.14 (w/Justin C)

TNA Impact Wrestling Header 2014

1. So now matches in TNA can start in the backstage area instead of the ring? I get that it is Falls Count Anywhere but come on. Every match should start in the ring. Starting backstage just makes things seem like an amateur fight.
