The Deadman giving out team talk on college football game. Awesome.

''ESPN’s College Gameday is set to have a big guest on Saturday afternoon, as WWE legend Undertaker will be joining the crew in Austin, Texas. Hailing from Texas, Undertaker will be there to help the College Gameday team break down the upcoming matchup between the #9 Texas Longhorns, and the #6 LSU Tigers, which promises to be one of the bigger games this week for College Football.

Quite unwise to take a drink of anything when you turn Jim Cornette on. His AEW review caught me there. Paraphrasing just a little here, as I do. :p

We have buy-in, all-in, all-out, double or nothing, Full house and straight flushing it down the toilet. These guys need to get away from Vegas and into wrestling.

Anything interesting happen on Raw? Forgive me.

Redundant question.
Contract singing was pretty dumb as Rollins and Brawn were dwarfed by Austins charisma and mic skills. AJ saved the bit at a stunner and everyone was happy.

There were some matches.
Corbin won three way match vs Richchet and Joe to be Raws KOTR guy.
Flair and Becky (friends again) vs Sasha and Bayley.
Viking Raiders actually did something other than squash matches.

Before the Show started Enes Kanter came to the ring and was being interviewed be my girl Charly. Super negative fan reaction. Truth came down trying to hype crowd up to get them to change to Enes' side. Still booed Enes so he pushed truth down and won the 24/7 title. Crowd was booing it butt off then Enes unzipped his jacket revealing his Celtics jersey. Truth rolled him from behind to get his belt back.

Nxt uk ppv was really good, im into them now. "V"alter and imperium would wreck anyone.

Cesaro was also a stud and funny.

Wwe getting boring again, lots of talk. Jesus Kofi you worked hard, stop telling us about it.

WWE re-defining the concept of a scripted show, eh?

WWE needs to be more like Once upon a time in Hollywood. Forget the other 80 failed Hollywood writers you have. Bring in the man. Tarantino to make it great again. I want the friends to have feelings. Get a good bromance going. I guess the closest we had to Cliff and Rick was Miz and Mizdow. :cry:

Word is Bischoff hasn't done anything yet as far as SD is concerned, he is still sorting things out and figuring out the right direction. His main focus is to be ready for the Fox switch over and he hasn't been around the product like Heyman so he was never going to be able to hit the ground rolling.

Owens and McMahon bastardized the push of Chad Gable who I fully expect to win the KOTR now though.

Also Rowan power bombed a fan onto Reigns which was kinda neat.

I really like the wwe letting sammy work with the undertaker. He sold it, hard since the taker rarely speaks.

I didnt get to the end yet, but like shane taking the spot. He is a vulture like that, makes his char better (was getting annoying before)

Nxt is great at the moment, wwe is very good. But nxt uk is really coming together for me, Niles is great. I dont mind that some are little white guys anymore.

AEW was 8-10, i dont care if i dont know the wrestlers yet, jim ross can talk about anything and id listen. Jericho needs a better finisher to be champ, the juda thing is something that doesnt need to be set up, like romans superman punch/spear

They hate Braun. I don't see him ever winning that title. The next push he gets will be too late, especially if he is still talking about "these hands"

At least it looks like the Fiend is going to unseat Rollins. The WWE HW champs are just not good right now. AJ and Shin/Zayn are doing their thing, but Rollins and Kofi don't do it for me.

Not sure where this Harper Rowan thing goes, but at least Roman lost to only two dudes. Usually it takes 5 and he still wins.

In the old days Braun would not have been knocked off his feet yet. He is still in a better spot than when he first came on WWE TV with Adam Rose. Wouldn't have expected him to be a top guy. Rollins or Kofi don't do much for me either.

We love Braun and Charlotte here, too bad they both had bad showings. I lost a lot of interest after Charlotte's match was a joke. Only the Fiend can save things :p

These Fiend things are carrying the show right now.

Baron won KOTR in what some people are calling the best on RAW this year. I would have bet money Gable was gonna win that thing. But I think Corbin is great - very few agree with me - and should be fine as King.

Braun did single handedly decimate both sets of tag champs.

Bow down to King Corbin. Brock Lesnar to save us from Kofi title run on the first fox Smackdown. ''You don't like Brock as champion? Just wait until ya see Kofi.'' it was cool at Wrestlemania. He had his moment but the midcarder should have got the Christian style title run. A nice thank you for all you've done. Now let the real men work while you go and play with your pancakes or whatever other product you are shilling.

Mon Brock. :cool:

Ric Flair has the phrase "To be the man, you have to beat the man" trademarked. Thinks anyone calling themselves "The Man" falls in that same category so he reached out to WWE to work out some situation to get compensated for it. WWE blew him off so he has actually filed to get "The Man" when referring to wrestling trademarked. And if he does he says he will sue WWE over it.

I do see where he is coming from. Calling yourself the man in wrestling is comparing yourself to Flair and maybe he should get compensation.

This whole thing could obviously be a work to start another run against Charlotte as well.

Glad to see Brock back. I don't see how Kofi comes out of the first SD with that belt. As soon as Brock lost to Seth this seemed what was going to happen. And If Brock leaving first Fox SD with title was the plan all along why have it change hands, because Brock can give Kofi a good beating and its a different opponent than Orton or Bryan.

Do Harper and Rowan make a run at the tag titles on the new SD? I imagine the first SD live on Fox is going o be lit and we will probably see at least 2 title changes.

I hope Corbin wrestles in the robe or at least puts a couple beat downs on fools with it.

Speaking of Corbin, Lance Storm was praising the guy and Orton cosigned, then backtracked.

Storm wrote, "Corbin takes a lot of s--t but that dude always plants guys flat and safe. Even when that catch didn't go right."

Orton responded, "Hate to say it but he's one of the few that gets the art"

In an update, Orton took to Twitter tonight and retracted the praise for King Corbin.

He wrote, "I'd like to retract this statement because I had been drinking heavily. I also would like to apologize to all of my peers."

King Corbin needs to go all in. Servants and a special crown (something like the Randy Savage one) haha I'm like this with every king of the ring winner. Some horse riding lessons as well if he doesn't already ride. It just seems like one of the easiest things you can book and be over the top with. I read about Randy Orton giving praise to Corbin. Orton comes off like one of those guys that wouldn't put somebody over if he didn't mean it.

Big Dave and Bryan are even sort of praising him now. They enjoyed the match. Very high on Gable as well. ''He needs to leave WWE because he is capable of being a star.''

Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I'm thinking Ric Flair has a case. In the weird wrestling courtroom way. Reminds me of Vince going at WCW when Hall and Nash came in.

Gable to me is a smaller version of Ziggler. Great worker no charisma. Future AEW champ for sure :)

Ive always been high on Corbin. Maybe now that hes King Corbin a decent looking T shirt will op up on WWE shop. He has historically had terrible Shirts.

Last two weeks of NXT has been good for people who know what NXT is and the people. They have did little do introduce those people to fans who may not know otherwise. Hopefully they don't go overboard witht he talking, but they need to do a little at least to get a casual fan interested in these guys. Unless they plan on Keith Lee to Canadian destroyered off the second rope week after week,

We are closuing in on the big Fox smackdown show. The new SD logo is pretty sweet though. They changed announced teams around in preparation. Renee wont be on any show and instead will have a FS1 show all about WWE with Booker T on I think Tuesdays. Will it be any good? Just another First take clone debate show clone? If they let Booker be Booker and don't kayfabe the heck out of the show it could be decent.

The beautiful John Morrison will be returning to our screens shortly. Been hearing his overall game (promos!) has improved. 39 years old now. Always was a fan. Part of the second best match I've ever seen live in person ( vs Rey Mysterio when JOMO was riding high in 2009. I think it had to be 2009.) Jerry Lawler marking out over the entrance was always cool. haha

CM Punk made it clear that AEW is bush league. haha jk But seems to have made it clear that he wants that limited schedule WWE coin. Matter of time now. Yes, that could be stretching it, but compared to how it was never again. It is not that way now.

Some reasons to tune in for a minute.

Never watch Lucha Underground or Impact Wrestling?

I haven't watched much Impact and Lucha is always good. My biggest issue with Morrison when he was in WWE was he just small. That's not a problem anymore as the guy that holds the cruiserweight/205 belt may be the tallest and heaviest of all the singles champs. Shinsuke is pretty decent sized so Gulak may not quite be bigger but he dwarves Kofi and AJ and is probably about the same as rollins.

Morrison (if he uses that) can come in and potentially have give them something right off the bat. But they may just easy job him out like they are EC3. But Morrision and Richochet have had great matches in the past and repeat that.

Punk will be back in WWE at some point eventually. It might be a one off short run from the rumble through mania or Summer Slam but it would be too easy to for him to cash in not to just do it. Especially now that it seems the lawsuits are all settled with WWE doc and Colt Cabana. Punk was actually screen testing with fox in LA and could show up Renee and Bookers show at some point. Maybe Fox paid the legal fees Punk through Cabana owed him and they ended the lawsuit so he ain't having to talk about it.

No Corey Graves obliterating my eardrums. +1 :giggle:

Time to make up a name and get a free month from WWE network. Quite interested in hell in a cell.

King staring at Becky's butt. I can't blame him.
