Being together since birth could make any duo sick of one another. For the wrestling sisters Bella, it was only a matter of time before one became sick of being in the shadow of the other. And that’s all it took for Nikki to finally snap on her sister Brie. “Twin Magic” may be over but I’m sure an encore is a possibility for the future.
New Announce Team? Probably Better Than The Current Three
RAW started with the Hall of Fame Panel of Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels. HBK said Cena’s chances of winning aren’t good to beat Lesnar again because it ain’t happening. HBK said he thinks Cena is at a crossroads in his career and it may be his time. Hogan said Cena can still go. Ric Flair said that he knows all three of them think the world of John Cena and that he is the Franchise. But he’s not feeling Cena over Lesnar at Night of Champions. Hogan said he is rooting for Cena. Michaels said no one takes a beating like Cena and comes back like that. They all started arguing before John Cena came out.
1~ I really don’t have much to say about the opening segment. Yes, there were a few Legends in the ring but the end result was another “rah-rah” John Cena promo. You would think that there’d be a huge return and promo after the absolute destruction Cena suffered at SummerSlam. Guess not.
2~ Guess it’s a good sign that Cesaro is actually getting a championship program, even if it is for the title everyone forgets is still in existence. I just hope Cesaro and Sheamus can have a few stiff and entertaining matches.
Welcome to Smackdown! This has to be the most exciting news to come out of Smackdown in a long time – we’ve got a new commentator! I enjoy the commentary from NXT so I am hoping that Tom Phillips can bring a little freshness to the announce booth. It’d be nice to at least have somebody who seems to want to watch the match that’s in the ring. I’m not getting my hopes too high, but it’s nice to dream.
WARNING If you haven’t watched Smackdown this is what you need to know. There is a LOT of Randy Orton.
Roman Reigns may be the ‘chosen one’ but time will only tell if he becomes the man or will end up playing second fiddle to his former partner, Dean Ambrose. The former Shield member was dealt the worst hand you could easily argue when the trio’s super stable broke apart. Roman Reigns remained at the top of the card and was awarded with keeping The Shield’s entrance and music along with ring gear allowing for his transition into singles competition easier for his former friends. Seth Rollins won the Money in the Bank briefcase and will probably cross paths with Reigns sometime in 2015 for the WWE WHC; but I fear that once Seth Rollins cashes in his briefcase the WWE may just push his aside as all signs point to Roman Reigns being the guy in 2015. Despite the rewards dealt to Rollins and Reigns Dean Ambrose shines much brighter than his current and outstanding rival Rollins and Reigns. His unteachable charisma is off the charts. He has taken this chaotic Brian Pillman if you will mentality and by god as my witness Dean Ambrose may be just as big as Stone Cold Steve Austin or CM Punk and finally, finally make those dumb chants go away.

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.
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.
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.
