JC’s Top Rope Report: Will The WWE Really Screw This Up Again?

JC Top Rope Logo

This seems like a running theme with the WWE. Just when you think the WWE has something everyone wants to see in front of them, they have to find a way to screw it up. Now nothing seems to be set in stone at all for Hell In A Cell. But it does appear that the WWE is leaning towards doing what was reported last week.

JC’s Top Rope Report: The RAW Truth Review For 9.29.14

Going In Circles

RAW started with The Authority. A CM Punk chanted and Steph asked why people cheer for quitters. She said it is because these people can relate with quitters. When things get tough at their life or job, they quit and give up. And then they steal, just like Dean Ambrose stole the MITB Briefcase from Seth Rollins. HHH started talking about the briefcase being a symbol for the business, and they will not let anyone disrespect this business.

Quick Hits: Total Divas S3 E4 – “Divas Unchained”

Total Divas Season 3 - Header

{For those who still don’t know, “Quick Hits” is a style of column that is more “stream of consciousness”-style while watching the show than a “Thoughts” recap.}

– Even Rosa Mendes is into Paige. See there’s just something about her…

– No one remembered Nattie’s birthday?! I’m sure there are fans out there that wished her a happy birthday on Twitter but her own husband forgot!? I sure hope this is all a ploy to help bolster Tyson Kidd’s new heel character because if it’s not, he’s screwed.

Quick Hits: Total Divas S3 E3 – “Roadside Rumble”

{For those who still don’t know, “Quick Hits” is a style of column that is more “stream of consciousness”-style while watching the show than a “Thoughts” recap.}

– It’s kind of awesome to see the superstars and divas talk about the internet rumors out there. See our work IS appreciated ;-).

– Ah if only Layla was apart of Total Divas instead of a lot of the other Divas. MUCH rather watch her for an hour than Summer Rae.

Mr. Grand Theft Auto Seth Rollins

After a recap of last night’s main event, Dean Ambrose came out. Ambrose proclaimed that he was not dead. He said the WWE’s ugly step child was back. He said he’s been a little loopy since the last time they saw him. He replayed the incident and said he was kind of flattered that The Authority would go to such great lengths to get rid of him. He said he will hold a grudge and is sick of The Authority protecting Seth Rollins. He said tonight he is The Authority and isn’t leaving until he gets his hands on Seth Rollins. Ambrose grabbed a chair and sat in the ring.

My Thoughts: WWE Night Of Champions 9.21.14 (John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler)

WWE Night Of Champions 2014

 

{Thanks to 95rdd19 on Deviant Art for the header image.}

#1~ Pre-Show Thought: Christian and Chris Jericho was just terrible. I hate to say it but it’s getting to a point where Chris Jericho should probably quit while he’s ahead.

#2~ It’s amazing how much The Usos have chemistry with almost every tag team they faced. A good opening match but also a lot of the same spots we’ve seen in the numerous matches these two teams have had. I expected Gold & Stardust would win the titles here but I hoped they wouldn’t. Nothing against the Dust brothers but as I said before, The Usos are so good with whoever they face and were on a great title run. We’ll see what Gold & Stardust can do now.

Quick Hits: Total Divas S3 E2 – “Mo’ Marriage, Mo’ Problems”

Total Divas Season 3 - Header

– I thought John Cena handled that rather well. I can tell you right now that he’s just pissed about the lying.

– “You mean how I have sex for kickpads?” – Awesome line from Bryan.

– Rosa Mendes is definitely a nice addition. At least visually.

– I know Trinity is trying to make Cameron feel better but what she’s saying is quite possible. Diesel was Shawn Michaels “bodyguard” and ended up winning the WWF Championship first. Cameron ABSOLUTELY needs a ton of training but this will at least keep her on TV.

Quick Hits: Total Divas S3 E1 – “Eggs Over Freezing”

Total Divas Season 3 - Header

 

– Nice job leading off this season with a recap of WrestleMania 30. It gives the viewer a reasonable timeline of where this season picks up.

– Since when did lingerie become suitable for ANY sort of family invitation?

– It’s really cool to see Rosa Mendes clean and sober but Nattie’s right. It’s all about suits and conservation dresses when backstage at the “Corporation” even when they encourage racy when on TV.

Be A Star John!

RAW started with Paul Heyman in the ring. Heyman said he is here to give us a preview of what will happen at Night of Champions. Heyman hummed Cena’s music then mocked kids cheering for him. Then said his client Brock Lesnar will come down. He said people could boo if they want but Lesnar will give them more to boo about this Sunday. John Cena then came out. Cena asked Heyman where Lesnar was. Heyman stumbled around the question. Cena said he told Heyman last week that if Lesnar wasn’t here he was going to fight him. Heyman said if it is a fight Cena wants it is a fight Cena will get. Heyman introduced Lesnar but then laughed. Heyman said Lesnar’s private plane was delayed but he will be here. Heyman said he thinks he knew Lesnar’s plane was delayed and called out Lesnar now because he knew he wasn’t here. Heyman applauded Cena for playing the hero character so well. Heyman tried to leave but Cena stopped him. Cena said if Lesnar isn’t here in 80 minutes he will kick Heyman’s ass. Cena said he didn’t trust Heyman and put him in a headlock all the way to the back.
