Dusty Rhodes “Quote” Wallpaper

The death of Dusty Rhodes today has totally caught me off-guard. Not only was the “American Dream” one of the greatest professional wrestlers to ever lace up the boots, Dusty was the first person at the WWE to be kind to the new outsider that just didn’t fit in with the rest of the crew. He took the time to sit and chat with me for no other reason than to make me feel more comfortable at my dream job. For a few minutes, I felt like I was talking to a co-worker instead of a Hall of Famer. I’m sure Dusty never thought twice about the interaction but it was such a brief but incredible moment of my life. That’s the type of guy he was. That’s the man I’ll miss. Well that and one of the most charismatic talkers & performers the world has ever seen.

JC’s Top Rope Report: Random RAW Thoughts For 6.29.15

JC Top Rope Logo

-I actually got a laugh out of that opening segment. The only thing that would have made it better would have been The Authority paying Price Is Right games to win the prizes. Mercury and Noble’s reactions to the car were great. It was another Authority opening, but it was at least different and good for a couple laughs.

Episode 21

-Big Ryck is in Dario Cueto’s office with a new crew, Killshot and The Mack. Cueto says he is introducing a new Trio’s Championship tonight, and Cueto tells Ryck his crew can be in the tournament.

-Johnny Mundo defeated Angelico in the opening match. If you did a shot every time a kick was landed in this match, you’d be past out right now. I’m not a big fan of Angelico’s kicks because I think they look weak.

JC’s Top Rope Report: Random RAW Thoughts For 6.22.15

-Boy have I missed Paul Heyman promos. Hearing a Heyman promo to start the show instead of an Authority one was great. And yes, Brock Lesnar should have noogied Michael Cole to death.

-The Sheamus/Roman Reigns match may have been brutal, but the crowd did just not care at all when Sheamus had control of the match. Once Reigns started his comeback there was some crowd involvement, but the fans aren’t taking Sheamus seriously at all yet.

Episode 16

-Aerostar defeats Drago in the opener to even up their series at one a piece. Dario Cueto comes out and says the two will have a best of five series, with the winner to be granted one of Cueto’s “unique opportunities.” Hey, more Drago/Aerostar is fine with me.

-Cage defeats Prince Puma after Konnan threw in the towel for Puma. Really good match with a fishy ending. Konnan said Puma will live to fight another day, but Vampiro questions his true intentions.

-ANNNDDD Sheamus loses his first match after winning Money in the Bank. This company sometimes. I don’t care if it was buy a distraction or not, you want to start building Sheamus up as a threat and he is already an after thought on the first show.
