Watch as Jake pumps big sound from his tiny instrument.
It’s better than nothing, right? RIGHT? When Sting tweeted 7.14.14 last week everyone got in an uproar that he’d be debuting on Raw and yada, yada, yada. The fact is he’s in his mid 50’s, and if he’s ever going to wrestle in the WWE it’ll probably be a short program from the Royal Rumble to WrestleMania, where he officially retires. Other than that, I’m not interested in him stealing the spotlight from an Ambrose, Rollins, Cesaro, Wyatt character. His impact on the business is set in stone, and a WWE run isn’t going to change anything. I’m glad he’s in the new video game, and I’m glad he’s finally signed with WWE, but let’s leave it at that. I will say it was awesome when the entire orchestra turned around and they all were all wearing Sting face paint. And if he comes back with a bat and beats the shit out of John Cena, all bets are off.
One of the highlights of Raw last night was Harper and Rowan continuing to branch out on their own, this time coming to the ring with their own entrance theme. The song reminds me of a really creepy carnival tune, except instead of a couple of clowns coming out from behind the curtain, two monsters with beards appear ready to rip your face off. The Uso’s are awesome, but Bray and the Wyatt family are far and away the most interesting characters in the WWE right now, so I’ll be rooting for them to steal the tag team titles live in Boston this Sunday.
Sam Smith hopped onto my radar earlier this year when he was the musical guest for Louis C.K.’s second stint as host of SNL, especially with his live version of ‘Stay With Me’. Now he’s crossing over into the cover song game, and if this version of ‘How Will I Know’ is any indication, he’ll be fantastic.
The always inspiring, Gary V shoots a little motivation into your monday morning.
Let me guess this straght. You have the most polished guy in the ring outside of Daniel Bryan who’s had GREAT (not good) matches with NXT, Raw and Smackdown superstars over the last year. You pair that guy up with Paul Heyman because Paul Heyman is the wrestling Jesus. You give him a sweet ass sparkled jacket and a cool new nickname. And this is his entrance theme? Just a siren blaring followed by a guitar? I can’t think of a theme song that fits a guy’s personality less than this song fits Cesaro. You’re building him up to be this otherwordly strong man who still has the quickness and agility to stay with the smaller guys, yet you stick him with this entrance song. Maybe I’m crazy but when I think of that kind of ability a siren is the not the first thing that comes to mind. An entrance song in todays wrestling world is just as important as a wrestler’s in ring or promo work. When the music first hits, you want the people to either explode out of their seats or boo with tenacity, not huddle under their chairs because the Russians are bombing us. I really hope by next weeks Raw Cesaro has a new theme song, and we see another 100 rotation swing to make up for this peice of garbage.
