Who should Evolution's 4th member be? What if the Shield gets a 4th member?, Why the Resurrection of Masked Kane won't be as good as others in the past.Read Now
Evolution is back. One difference Randy Orton and Batista aren't newcomers anymore. Randy Orton just got done with a very successful heel push. Batista has returned still being booed. Triple H is now back competing in the ring. I see this being HHH last wrestling PPV for a while until SummerSlam. There all older but they can still can work well in the ring together we saw that Monday night on RAW. Triple H showed us at Mania he can still go. The big question is who is the 4th member of Evolution. It's not Ric Flair anymore. Ric Flair can't wrestle but he could be there manager. The thing is Ric Flair can't travel that much anymore. Just let Ric Flair help his daughter Charlotte in NXT. Here are my list for the next Evolution member. I think that Cody Rhodes should be the next member of Evolution. Cody Rhodes was having a good feud with Damien Sandow and it looked like Cody was going to head up to be World Heavyweight Champion. Cody Rhodes progress has been delayed. It's not Goldust's fault either. WWE unifying titles makes me scratch my head because the champion still carries two titles and that defeats the point of unifying titles. There was a list of guys in my mind that could be the WHC. Some of them I couldn't see as a WWE Champion though. Cody Rhodes future is bright that what makes him a person for Evolution. The next wrestler I'm thinking of is Big E. Big E is a powerhouse and a explosive personality that Evolution could use to handle The Shield. Big E could be a smart move for Evolution. BIG E aka BIG Evolution. I had to do that I just had too. WWE Creative team loves repackaging talent and there top priority is Kofi Kingston and If your going to repackage Kofi. Kofi should be put into Evolution. Kofi would compete with Seth Rollins. You have a lot of options for a fourth member. The Shield should only have one option. He comes down from the rafters he wears white and black. His name is Sting. Sting debut has been dragging for a long time this time it could be used amazingly. Sting can still wrestle so if he joins the Shield it would just be pure epic. Sting doesn't need to come to WWE. Just might make his legacy better. The Shield/Evolution angle I'm predicting will go til SummerSlam. Which it will be Reigns VS HHH or if Sting joins the WWE and the Shield,Sting VS HHH. I can't wait to see this feud. I'm just annoyed by these Marks/Smark fans that one day are like Bryan won the title and the next day there like Evolution better destroyed Daniel Bryan to shreds. It doesn't make any sense but its there opinion. Just very confused on that aspect of the IWC/WWE Universe.

Tonight is RAW is Warrior a tribute show to the life and the legacy of the Ultimate Warrior. I'm expecting a lot of emotion and a lot of great video packages. WWE video team is brilliant so they should be able to make some good videos. Well in a real WWE storyline. The Shield has turned on the authority here are the possible outcomes for tonight.
Cesaro isn't a Zeb Colter guy. He's now a Paul Heyman guy. This is a big step or step back in someone's career. For Cesaro I see great potential with him and Paul Heyman. Curtis Axel and Ryback were the only Heyman guys that took a step back for their careers. Cesaro will be feuding with Jack Swagger now and this will be a interesting development.
A IC title #1 contenders tournament starts tonight. WWE hasn't announced any of the participants. I could see RVD entering the tournament. The usual jobbers. To make stuff interesting you should throw in Rusev. I hope this bracket goes for a while.
After being leaked early this week the rumor has it, It will be John Cena VS Bray Wyatt at Extreme Rules. We will see the Wyatt's and Cena tonight on RAW. Bray Wyatt has had the momentum I wonder what creepy stipulation. They could put on this match.
This RAW has the potential to be excellent... but will it?

Remembering the Ultimate Warrior
On April 8th the Ultimate Warrior died. Warrior was inducted into the Hall of Fame just 3 days earlier. Then he died the night after he made his first RAW appearance in 18 years. The Ultimate Warrior known for his intensity and his running to ring and then shaking the ropes. The Ultimate Warrior's biggest highlight was him beating Hulk Hogan for the then WWF championship at WrestleMania VI. Ultimate Warrior was the most successful in his WWE tenure and he had a short stint in WCW too. Ultimate Warrior a wrestling icon and a pop culture icon. I rewatched Ultimate Warrior's Hall of Fame speech. It was sad to see that this man is dead. Thing that shook me was when he said this " I can't wait to be a ambassador for WWE for a multi year deal". When he said that it took me to the realization that this man died 3 days later. On the night after WrestleMania 30. The Ultimate Warrior came out and said this quote in one of his most epic promo's. Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized- Ultimate Warrior.
Ultimate Warrior is now immortalized. Legends never die. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. WWE should honor Warrior's last request make the Jimmy Miranda Award. or call it the Warrior Award. WWE should follow with his last request this man has been through a whole lot. The Warrior deserves this award to be realized. The backstage people should have a section of the Hall of Fame. Celebrities do. Why can't the people that make the magic have their own section.
RAW was amazing. NXT has talent.
We saw one of the most epic RAW's in a very long time. What can I say starting the show with Daniel Bryan. The crowd was electric Fandango and even Bad News Barrett got a pop. Rey Mysterio was treated like a heel. The Wyatt's were spectacular. Cesaro announcing he was a Paul Heyman guy. I actually called that one. When Paige made her debut I was like "who is booking this show it's freaking amazing". When Paige one the title. I personally marked out. I'm betting that AJ Lee was happy that she dropped the title to someone like Paige and not like a Naomi or Eva Marie or even a Natalya. The Shield is a great group and I can't wait to see them tear threw Evolution. WWE did two vignettes for Two NXT stars the first one was Bo Dallas. Bo Dallas was that guy in the Royal Rumble last year the you know wasted a spot. Bo Dallas said a Wayne Gretzky quote and came off as a Knucklehead. The other vignette was for Adam Rose. In my opinion Adam Rose has a better character and has better ring and promo skill then Bo Dallas. Adam Rose's vignette was him on the Exotic Express introducing us to his wildlife party animal styled character. Adam Rose has more of the uprising. Other NXT stars could be brought up like Sami Zayn a great in ring talent a little rough on the promo side. Sami Zayn I think could handle WWE's roster. I even thought a couple of month's ago that he would be at WrestleMania 30. I noticed something in WWE when you can really tell what guys the like and you can tell how they get treated too these guys seem like the nexts call ups. WWE and John Cena are in love with NXT Talent Mojo Rawley. When this guy makes the main roster he will be using his catchphrase "I don't get Hyped I stay hyped." Also when he makes the main roster I think he will go simply as Mojo. My reasoning is that Vince likes shortening and changing names. Antonio Cesaro is now Cesaro. Big E Langston is now simply Big E. So Mojo Rawley will be Mojo. Thats my prediction. The other star is named Corey Graves he seems like a OK wrestler and it seems like he has a similar look based on his tattoos like CM Punk. Trust me they make him seem like some kind of force in NXT he will be loved when he makes his debut. NXT is bright you can clearly tell who the smarks like and who the marks will fall in love with too.

What if I told you a tradition and a legendary streak died at wrestlemania last night? Would you believe me? If you weren't watching the PPV and if you weren't on the internet would you believe your friend saying that this legendary streak vanished. When I watched Brock Lesnar hit the 3rd F5. I had a feeling Taker would kick out. Taker always kicks out right? I was wrong I was way off. The ref counted the three count then you saw all the fans reactions. I thought for sure Vince was going to come out and reverse the decision. How could this be this Immortal Icon. A deadman was dead. The WWE Universe and the IWC always wants surprises and we got the biggest surprise of all time. I guess Undertaker is done he is finished. Thats the only way I could see it. That Taker is retiring. Taker did look awful in that ring. Him and Brock Lesnar weren't getting any where with the match. The match basically sucked til the shocking end. Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman should be the most hated figures in wrestling now. I honestly don't think Taker should show up tonight on RAW. It wouldn't be worth the time. Taker coming out and saying that he lost isn't worth time on RAW. Taker should vanish and go off into the sunset. Unless they really want that Sting match. Well 21-1 is still pretty good but it won't be undefeated. I have the question though WWE won't have anything like this ever again unless they can find a new streak. Well on other news Fandango streak ended too and so did the Miz's streak but no one wants to talk about that. That seems odd. (sarcasm). WrestleMania had other moments too. How the show started with The "Immortal" Hulk Hogan coming out saying "All you watching on the WWFE Network" and Hogan also said "were at the Silverdome."Then he's interrupted by the Texas Rattlesnake who gets one of the biggest pops. Comes out does a promo with Hogan and then The Rock comes out and it starts to get good. They had a iconic moment of legends all together in one ring. That could've been one heck of a once in a lifetime match. That was a true moment and it created some early excitement. Then the next match was Triple H VS Daniel Bryan remember this match either makes or breaks this show. If Triple H would've won the crowd would've been relentless for the rest of the night. Daniel Bryan won clean and that was one heck of a match. Triple H, I was worried that he wouldn't have it and he brought his all. The Shield match was short but good. Kane and New Age Outlaws were just basically jobbers. The Shield just absolutely injured the New Age Outlaws. Billy Gunn was coughing up blood. Road Dogg was limping and I love when people say this sport is fake. (I say the sport is predetermined the action is real to a point). Shield doing a triple power bomb with two guys was a great spot. Kane didn't play a big role in that match except for getting speared by Roman Reigns. In the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal, I thought for sure that Big Show would win that match even though I predicted and hoped for Cesaro. Cesaro lifted up Big Show and through him out of the ring. I'm excited for Cesaro new push after winning the battle royal he should now go beat Big E for the IC title and take down Ambrose with him and make the European Championship. John Cena taking on Bray Wyatt wasn't a bad match. Bray Wyatt was just off the charts great. Whether it was him hitting a Sister Abigail or him singing "He's got the whole world in his hands" and rubbing johns head. Bray Wyatt looked great in the match and I know a lot of people will be mad that he didn't go over Cena. Wyatt is young he will get over Cena someday. How there feud was set up the baby face had to win. Bray Wyatt did come out of that match more memorable then the winner so I don't think him losing was a big deal. The Divas match wasn't good. How the match was set up it was idiotic. First fall to the finish and theres 14 girls in the ring doesn't make any sense. I'm glad to see AJ Lee retain her title even though I thought a total diva would've won. WWE did the obvious and put the title on Daniel Bryan. WWE had you on the edge of your seat throughout that main event it was good booking. Surprisingly Batista and Orton showed up and both of them played there roles well. Mania was a great show. The world is still in shock and speechless on the phenom losing. I don't know how long it will take for us to stop talking about it. The thing is when a WrestleMania this good. The night after RAW is going to be way better and here is your RAW Preview.

Let me say it's getting close to WrestleMania. WrestleMania looks like it will guarantee us some great entertainment but the wrestling on the other hands looks like it will be struggle. Unless they add more matches which won't happen. For a go home show RAW was great the fights at the end got me excited for the match (HHH VS Bryan). The video about WWE's False Idol's was excellent. It had Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle. Which I think a lot of people popped for. WWE's video editing is just fantastic. There videos are usually pretty good. I'm now going to give RAW it's report card.
RAW REPORT CARD
WRESTLING: B- : Why a B- RAW still doesn't have that guarantee of good wrestling. Surprisingly Del Rio/Big E wasn't all that bad. Reigns VS Kane wasn't exciting till the end when Reigns went on his comeback. Batista VS Orton relied on only using weapons the whole time… Rhodes Brother's match wasn't really special thought something would happen with Summer Rae. The Uso's came through in their match to make it entertaining.
ENTERTAINMENT: B+ : Well Roddy Piper did Piper's Pit…. Nothing else really happened backstage
Storyline Progress: A: WWE created excitement for all of its matches it might have been generic excitement. They were selling the card well though.
RAW OVERALL SCORE: A-
Final thoughts on RAW: WWE did what they had to do get people talking about the matches this sunday and now everyone is wondering if we will be screwed or not at this PPV. In my opinion WrestleMania will be a major pay off. If you know Bryan wins… Thing I'm scratching my head with is, Who would want to watch a 2 hour pre show? So the 1st hour is on all social media and the 2nd hour is exclusively to the WWE Network. I'm just saying the pre-shows are fine but I don't know who would want to listen to Josh Matthews, Booker T,Ric Flair give their opinions. I hope Cesaro steals the spotlight at Mania all I got to say.
Why Stars need to be at WrestleMania 30
Stone Cold Steve Austin was confirmed by WWE today that he would make a appearance at WrestleMania. It will be great to see Stone Cold back in a WWE ring or see him in a cameo appearance. The other star that WWE wants bad at the PPV is The Rock and he most likely be rocking it Via Satelitte but how does the Rock make his return to WWE after leaving to go home after WrestleMania 29. People haven't forgotten about that so I would expect. The Rock would announce his return to RAW or a in ring return. The Rock is a entertainer anything he does will be awesome.What the Rock and Stone Cold could contribute a lot to WM30. WWE needs to get all the mega stars to appear which they should.
Hey everybody did you hear that AJ Lee is engaged that sucks. I wonder who she will be marrying????
