Raw recap - 07/22/13

Sorry bros, I'm here. I had an unfortunate incident involving tea being spilled on my laptop and the keys malfunctioning before ceasing to work all together so yeah sorta had to get that fixed. Due to work commitments I won't be able to catch up on the missed recaps but I'll make up for it with tonight's Raw!!
PS. I watched 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded and I really wasn't expecting much, particularly in the way of Randal's acting, but it was surprisingly good. Definitely one I'd watch again. Go see it!

Raw recap - 07/08/13

With Vickie Guerrero's performance evaluation, the debut of the Wyatt Family and this being the last Raw before Money in the Bank, I genuinely don't know what to expect. But I'm excited.

Superstar Spotlight - John Cena

Name: John Cena
Favorite move: F-U (I'm living in the past, I know)
Favorite gimmick: Doctor of Thuganomics
Favorite tag-team: Cena & Orton
Strengths: He may not have a wide selection of moves or be the best wrestler on the roster, maybe not even top 10, but Cena can keep a crowd interested. That's what professional wrestling is about, whether the crowd is booing or cheering, as long as they're reacting strongly the guys are doing their job. Cena gets a reaction like no one else, and that is his biggest asset, and one of the biggest reasons we will see him in the Hall of Fame one day.
Weaknesses: Four words - five moves of doom. I'm not a Cena hater, I respect the hell out of him, he (arguably) carries the company. But if we're talking about being a good wrestler, Cena's name is not one of the first to come to mind. 
Hopes: I hope, whether it be unrealistic or not, for Cena to take a break from the spotlight for a while. Pass the championship off to one of the younger guys like Ambrose or Bryan or even Rhodes, and just take some time to put people over. Cena is not going to become irrelevant any time soon, so using him to get the newer talent over won't do him any harm. Give Jericho a break, and let Cena work with the newer talent for a while.
Overall opinion: I have always had a soft spot for Cena. Regardless of what you think of him, you can't deny he has a real love and passion for WWE. He's a true superstar, and I hope he doesn't go anywhere any time soon.

It's that time of week again! With CM Punk promised to appear tonight on Smackdown I'm calling that we will hear JBL say "we fight on Friday nights" at least once.

Smackdown recap - 06/28/2013

So the MITB competitors are being announced, Dolph Ziggler has a concussion but keeps attacked Alberto Del Rio anyway, Daniel Bryan finally (FINALLY) beat Randy Orton, AJ Lee is continuing her torture of Kaitlyn, Paul Heyman's being shifty as fuck, Ryback has issues with Chris Jericho and Mark Henry is still laughing about his fake retirement speech. Smackdown, don't let us down!

Superstar Spotlight - Dolph Ziggler

Name: Dolph Ziggler
Favorite move: Name Dropper
Favorite gimmick: Show Off
Strengths: Oh where to begin. Ziggy is just so naturally talented, he's so athletic and passionate about wrestling.
Weaknesses: I don't know if I can pin this on Dolph as a weakness but he's just not convincing as a heel. People support him too much, it's like no matter how hard he tries people still cheer for him.
Hopes: Ziggler cashing in his MITB contract and winning the World Heavyweight Title was an amazing moment, one that was so well deserved. Taking it away from him was a huge mistake in my mind, and I would really like to see him regain it, now as a face with a clean win. However, I doubt any world championship win could be as glorious as his first.
Overall opinion: Ziggler is one of the most deserving, hard working superstars on the roster, and I can definitely see him being a maineventer for years to come. Power to ya, Ziggy.
