Who will take Bayleys spot against Alexa Bliss this Sunday?
Will we see a bunch of matches tonight that should be held off until Summerslam?
Well, we got those answers and more on this weeks MONDAY NIGHT RAW!
Welcome to the HTCWrestling Great Balls of Fire preview! This was meant to be done in podcast form this week. But Skype decided to fuck with Cam and I and not allow us to do a Skype to Skype call like normal, which is suppose to be free. And of course their support/customer service is the drizzling shits. So if you have any ideas why it made us ask for money for the call, let us know!
This show has been built up rather well for the most part. Now I said the same thing about Money in the Bank and that show ended up being a dud thanks to some awful finishes. RAW has been entertaining the last couple weeks and hopefully they can keep that momentum going into SummerSlam.
Now on to the preview!
Folks we are only 6 days away from one of the most anticipated events of the year. We have been riding this road and we are here- Goodness Gracious folks. It’s Great Balls of Fire. Let’s see how this Raw plays out less than a week away.
I have to confess that I missed Raw last week. If you’re someone who secretly looks forward to me rambling about it every week you probably know because I was not writing about it, RIGHT HERE – AT HTCWRESTLING DOT COM (I imagine a raucous crowd pop here…).
Justin C here filling in for Heather tonight on the RAW scene. I’ve done a lot of writing over the last few days, so you are getting a quick five thoughts from me with results at the bottom. Also, if you are reading this, we still want writers to help out in situations like this and to write for our site. So if you are interested, hit us up on Twitter @HTCWrestling!
1. The Hardy Boyz Need To Get BROKEN Soon, Or The Nostalgia Act Will Wear Off
-It was exciting to see Matt and Jeff come back at Wrestlemania. But the excitement is starting to wear off with me. The Hardyz can still go in the ring, but everyone wants to see the Broken gimmick in the WWE. And I really wish they could find a way to work something out with Impact. Personally I think Impact is being petty in all of this. But if there is legal precedent then I guess they have a case. But at some point something needs to change with them. I also didn’t like them kicking out of The Club’s finisher. The Club deserves much better and they have been pushed to the side since Matt and Jeff returned as well.
Last week’s Raw had me all amped up, and I went to Smackdown this past week so I am loving Wrestling! I wonder how that will stand up against tonight. Continue reading
So you probably noticed I didn’t have a Smackdown Live write up last night. That’s because I was there! I took the 90 minute ride from Buffalo to Rochester to attend the show.
I pretty much went because I wanted to see Shinsuke Nakamura in person. I’ve also never seen AJ Styles wrestle so I knew I had a high chance of seeing that happen as well.
