Sorry, wrong person. Tonight, on the With Leather WWE Raw open discussion thread:
Why, HBK, why?
I don’t know, WWE.com, have you ever watched wrestling?
That’s the question heading into tonight’s Raw after Shawn Michaels delivered Sweet Chin Music to Daniel Bryan and allowed Randy Orton to claim the abeyant WWE Championship for himself. But is it a simple answer? The Showstopper’s actions certainly left the WWE Hall of Famer conflicted, and speculation has already begun as to what, exactly, was going through HBK’s mind when he made his fateful decision. With The Authority’s crown jewel restored and Daniel Bryan’s fate uncertain, WWE.com previews tonight’s Raw. (via WWE.com)
Our five-point preview:
1. Be sure to read The Best and Worst of WWE Hell in a Cell 2013 if you haven’t already. John Cena was there, and he LOST. Just kidding.
2. Tonight’s big news is that CM Punk is done with the Paul Heyman feud (maybe?) and can finally move on to do anything else, such as noticing the increase in number of murderous cultist hillbillies, noticing that AJ Lee is currently doing the lady version of the Best in the World storyline or perhaps, I don’t know, helping WWE’s babyfaces fight that evil corporation that took over while Punk was busy.
3. Kane and John Cena make their return to Raw. This is great for people who like characters that’ve been around 15 years, but not so much for the people who like good wrestling matches. The shirts are gonna be hella pink, though, we’ve got one more Raw left in this month, let’s get Cena’s merch on there as much as possible. As merch as possible.
4. Shawn Michaels will reveal why he turned on Daniel Bryan, and I hope the answer is just, “because I’m Shawn Michaels. Pay attention and stop voting me into things.”
5. The Curtis Axel Art Project continues! In last week’s report I asked you to send me a collage of what Curtis Axel means to you, and now that he’s injured, your contributions help more than ever. Post them here or tweet them to me directly at @MrBrandonStroud with the hashtag #CurtisAxelArtProject to make sure I get them. Even if you’ve sent it to me already.
As always, the top 10 comments from tonight’s open discussion thread will be featured in tomorrow’s Best and Worst of WWE Raw report. To nominate a comment for top 10 consideration, please reply to it with a +1.
Enjoy the show, everybody.
