#1~ St. Louis just went ape-shit for Bad News Barrett! It was refreshing to see him back on TV & the tease of him being the “general manager” was fantastic!

#2~ I was just spit-balling ideas and storylines with the “Wrestling Wife” while preview the main event of Team Cena versus Team Authority & two scenarios popped into my head. One, which I said on the Pulsecast, is that Dolph Ziggler or Sheamus would turn on John Cena to cost him the match. The second came when the rumor of Roman Reigns being backstage in St. Louis surfaced. That would be Cena getting beatdown unfair while the referee is down, Reigns storming the ring and giving the win to John Cena. This then sets off a feud between Reigns and Triple H who will now “have” to be a wrestler since The Authority would be out of power.

Harrak’s Thoughts: WWE RAW 11.17.14 (John Cena, The Authority, Ryback, Luke Harper)

WWE Raw Header - 2014

#1~ That was a nice use of footage from when Ryback was in the midst of his inevitably failed heel run. It was completely en-vogue to mock & humiliate Ryback and the always clever John Cena was certainly on that bandwagon. I’m curious to see if Cena tries to spin that footage in his favor (which he obviously can’t). I really hope Ryback doesn’t join Cena’s team, keep him neutral. I hate to say it but Randy Orton is the perfect fit for the final spot.

JC’s Top Rope Report: The RAW Truth Review For 11.17.14

JC Top Rope Logo

Continuity in the WWE?

Team Authority came to the ring to start the show. Triple H talked about Vince’s announcement from a few weeks ago and how everyone there probably wants them out of power. Triple H said that they are now seen as the evil empire, but the audience couldn’t see what they do for them because they are just sheep. HHH said they would rather have the inmates run the asylum, but the last time that happened was in WCW. And they bought them at auction. Triple H said that there is no way the Authority is losing this Sunday.

JC’s Top Rope Report: Admitting When You’re Wrong

JC Top Rope Logo

Sometimes, you just have to throw your hands up and admit defeat. It’s not something that is easy to do for a lot of people. For me, it’s something that I’ve done before. When you have been a Buffalo Bills fan all of your life, throwing your hands up and admitting defeat is something that you are used to doing by Week 11 of the NFL season.

But this isn’t about the Bills. This is about admitting that I was wrong about something WWE related. Again, this isn’t something new to me. I’ve backed certain things that the WWE has done before and have it come back and bite me in the ass. And yet every time the WWE does that, I still go back to support a decision they made because I think it will be “good for business.” And once again, it has come back to bite me in the ass.

DVD Review: WWE Attitude Era Vol. 2

Attitude Era Vol 2 Review

Just in case you didn’t know what the Attitude Era was, WWE nicely kicks off this DVD with a bikini competition between Sunny, Sable, Marlena and the Funkettes. But it’s not just a clip of the competition but there’s an introduction by Sunny herself talking about how the WWF was changing from the uber-safe, bloomer-wearing, G-rated WWF to the more loose and thong-bearing Attitude Era.

#1~ I never thought I would put Ryback in the headline of a RAW report again. It’s amazing what removing a beanie that makes you look like a steroid-pump condom can do for a guy.

#1 ~ Ryback, Mark Henry, Triple H, Kane and John Cena opened RAW. Yea that really makes me want to stay awake for the rest of this show. Not to mention that suddenly Jack Swagger is relevant again.

#2~ Ah it seems that Stephanie McMahon heard the online criticism of last week’s “Vladimir Putin” line from Lana. At least this interaction felt more like how things would happen backstage (even the tongue-in-cheek comment about politics in the WWE).
