Acting Talent! (Missing In This Segment)

Daniel Bryan’s music hit to start the show, but Stephanie McMahon came out instead. She did the yes chant all the way down. She thanked the audience for chanting her name all the way to the ring. She said people are saying SummerSlam was even better than Wrestlemania. One reason is because they crowned a new WWE Champion, and tonight the Authority will present him a new title belt. She wished John Cena a speedy recovery. Steph said Brie Bella is the biggest loser of the night and that she learned to never mess with The Authority. She thanked Triple H for always being faithful and her rock by her side. Unlike Daniel Bryan, who cheated on his wife. She introduced Nikki to tell us more about her sister.

JC Top Rope Logo

Hello everyone. I’m here to throw in my two cents on a pretty good SummerSlam and give my second round of predictions as to a potential Wrestlemania 31 card. I usually like to do three different rounds of them: Right after Wrestlemania, after SummerSlam, then at the end of the year.

My Thoughts: WWE SummerSlam 2014 (John Cena vs Brock Lesnar, Randy Orton vs Roman Reigns, Stephanie McMahon vs Brie Bella)

1~ Rob Van Dam beats Cesaro cleanly with the 5 Star Frog Splash. Read that sentence again and tell me what’s wrong with it.

2~ My Xbox 360 feed was constantly buffering or entirely exiting out of the show. Couldn’t “Retry” to entire the feed as it would just exit out again. Now I’m in the office watching SummerSlam on my computer just waiting for this to crash too.

My Thoughts: WWE RAW 8.11.14 (John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Hulk Hogan, Stephanie McMahon)

WWE Raw Header - 2014

 

1~ I’d be remiss in not opening this article without drawing attention to the horrible suicide that happened today. The world lost a legend in Robin Williams to severe depression. Depression is real and is something I’ve only begun to deal with. I had to miss work from December 2013-February 2014 because I was learning how to manage it. I still struggle with it every single day & it certainly kicked up when I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia, plus they found a node on my lung. If I didn’t have my friends and family throughout this year, I don’t know what I would have done. Williams was obviously suffering from something that no one was going to be able to help him with and life just became too much. I understand it & hope that, if nothing else, his death brings more attention to depression sufferers and we’re not just brushed aside any longer.

JC’s Top Rope Report: SummerSlam’s Most Questionable Booking Decisions

JC Top Rope Logo

We are less than a week away from SummerSlam, which is looking to be one of the better cards of the year. Last year’s SummerSlam had two Match of the Year candidates on it. I don’t think this year’s will, but it has been built pretty well from top to bottom.

SummerSlam has generally been considered the second biggest PPV of the year. Some people might say the Royal Rumble is number two, but I would still put SummerSlam #2 on the list.

Hip Hop Advocating Jew. T-Shirt That

Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar came out to start the show. He said in six days he will be the advocate for the new WWE Champion Brock Lesnar. Heyman said his client has asked him to come out tonight and sell SummerSlam to the Cenation. Heyman said bad things happen to good people when you step into the ring with Brock Lesnar. Heyman said those who don’t learn from history live to repeat it. Heyman then showed pics of Lesnar ending The Streak at Wrestlemania. He said that he told everyone it would happen and they shouldn’t have been surprised. He then brought up Lesnar destroying Rock and Hogan back in the day. Heyman told the Cenation to watch SummerSlam, because after it they won’t be able to see John Cena around here anymore. Heyman said even though Cena won their previous match, Cena lost the fight. Heyman said Brock was still battling diverticulitis at the time of that loss, but this Sunday Brock is 100%. Heyman said this Sunday will be a Shakespearean Tragedy. Heyman said they aren’t from West Newbury, and they can’t hip hop like you. Heyman said he is just Brock’s advocating Jew. Heyman said Cena says his time is now, but Brock said his calendar is out of date. Heyman went on to rhyme and rap. It was great. I couldn’t keep up writing it. Heyman said this is Brock’s house now. He said we are now all his servants. Heyman said they are leaving the house to go get dinner, but after they are coming back home.
