Shane McMahon Returned To The WWE Last Night In One Of The Most Genuinely Shocking & Exciting Moments in #RAW History
I’m not going to lie, I watched this entire segment standing up 2 feet from my TV. When Shane’s music hit, I leapt off my couch and just could not contain my excitement. WWE is known to pull out all the stops when it comes to WrestleMania season, but this was one of the most genuinely exciting moments in recent memory. A lot of it goes back to what I wrote about Daniel Bryan a few weeks ago. His retirement was so sad because it gives his career a finite end. Wrestling fans want to believe that their favorite wrestler, whether he/she is 20, 30, 40 or 100, will always return. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fantasy booked Shane McMahon returning in my head, and now it’s finally happened. You don’t get feelings like this in other sports. In 10 years from now, Tom Brady isn’t going to come out at halftime of a playoff game if the Patriots QB gets hurts. David Ortiz is going to pinch hit in a World Series game 20 years from now. But in pro wrestling, you never fucking know.
As far as the actual segment goes, LISTEN TO THAT CROWD. That is a pop usually reserves for a Stone Cold or The Rock, but here’s Shane McMahon, in his suit and Jordan’s, shuffling across the stage like never left. Shane was a huge part of the success of the Attitude Era, and he’s involved in a lot of my favorite moments. Shane vs. Kurt Angle at KOTR, Shane falling from the god damn Titan Tron, Shane vs. Vince at WM 17. Now that’s back, he only wants one thing: control of Monday Night Raw. Vince says he can have it under one condition: he must beat The Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match at WrestleMania.
That, my friends, is how you sell your audience on WrestleMania. Combine this segment with the end segment, which saw HHH brutalize Roman Reigns, and you have to main events that are sure to blow us away. If the Mean Street Posse comes out and helps Shane I might actually burn my house to the ground.
The Single Greatest Feature in iOS 8 That Nobody is Talking About
Full screen contact pictures are back! The time of the stupid little bubbles is over! Finally I can see all the hilarious pictures/names I set for my friends.
Yeah, i’m a big fan of The Sopranos, and all my close friends in my phone reflect that. Hats off to you Apple, not sire why it was gone in the first place, but kudos for rectifying your horrible mistake. I thank you. Now please excuse me, I have contact pictures to find.
The Most Emotional Scene in TV History
After doing the Michael vs. Toby blog I could not stop looking at clips of The Office. If you are a true fan of the show, or have a heart, this scene makes you weep every time.
I could watch this video 1,000,000 times and never get sick of it.
The King of Comedy is BACK, JACK!
Dave Chappelle is back! Last night he opened the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Tour in Austin
He opens with “I have terrible news for the audience……I don’t have any material.” He performed for 45 minutes with a set that was very personal and that addressed his absence from comedy.
All I can say is…welcome back Dave, we have missed you.
The Usos Personify Tag Team Wrestling
Last night was WWE’s Money In The Bank pay per view. And let me start by saying that this was the best ppv, behind Wrestlemania, the WWE has put on all year and probably most of last year. The MITB ppv was packed full of excitement from the minute it went live to the moment it ended. But what I want to talk about is the half hour before the ppv began, what I want to talk about is the WWE app exclusive pre-show, what I want to talk about is The Usos vs. The Shield.
When the Usos debuted in the WWE I was excited to hear that a true-to-form tag team was going on the RAW roster. An actual team, not like these other “Frankenstein” tag teams that are thrown together by the GM at the last minute. (Don’t get me wrong I think Jeri-show was an all-time tag team) The Usos got their 15 minutes of fame and then were banished to NXT, Superstars, and the other nothing WWE TV shows. I was upset to say the least. But now they are back, and back with a vengeance, and I am one happy little man-boy.
The match they put on last night with The Shield gave me hope for the future of the tag team division in WWE. The match was pure lightning from the bell to the Power Bomb/Superplex (the best spot I’ve seen since Cena was put through the spot light at backlash in 2009)
All I can say is go watch the match and pray that WWE has the sense to keep them in the spotlight. They have something special on their hands and it would be a shame to see them go the way of the Colons.
PS- That’s what I do!!!!!!!!
