Dude, Where's My Phone? - Raw - 7/16/2018

Recommended Posts

I finally figured out who Bobby Lashley reminds me of. 

latest?cb=20110619002453&path-prefix=en

And the rest of the show was what it was.  Sasha loves Bayley and is going to get turned on.  Ronda gets Alexa at Summerslam.  And Kurt Angle is a pickpocket.  

Poor stupid Corbin.

Booking is in the toilet. 

What's the point of Lashley beating Roman at the PPV if it meant nothing?

Now Roman wins the rematch and neither guy looks good. Fucking idiots.

That first triple threat was awesome.

Did they go where I think they went with Sasha and Bayley?

Roman gets nothing out of losing to Lashley again. Besides that Lasley just has no momentum at all. He got a decent pop when he returned and nothing since. Really this should have just been Braun cashing in and murdering Lesnar for the belt.

I'm not sure what is supposed to be goign on with the Bayley/Sasha stuff. Angle still hasn't made any sense of why the two can't just fight each other. They aren't a tag team so they don;t really bring Raw extra money that way.

The setup to Rosuey/Alexa was ok I guess.

The first triple threat was good.

That depends. Where do you think they went?

I liked Sarah Logan finally getting a win. With Graves bringing up her Viking roots, I'd like to see her eventually becoming the Bludgeon Sister. Put Nikki Cross back with Sanity when she gets called up. Give me a feud between The Bludgeon Brothers & Logan vs. Sanity. 

Anyway, back to Raw, I guess. 

What exactly was the point of Bobby Roode challenging Dolph for the IC title only to lose a non-title match?

After Lashley won, that crowd went mild at the prospect of another Roman/Lashley match that inevitably leads to Roman/Brock.

Finn vs. Lashley could of been a fun match. Drew vs. Lashley could of been a fun match. Roman vs. Lashley again and we're 99.999999% sure Roman's winning. Yeah that's gonna go over well here in Brooklyn at Summerslam.

So if Baley and Sasha can't get along, one of them gets sent to Smackdown. Nice to know Smackdown which just made the company a $2 billion dollar television deal is still seen as inferior.

It was, at the very least, the most fanfic dialogue they’ve written since Seth and Dean’s reconciliation, and Sasha delivered it well. Though of course, it makes no sense at all, in light of... everything else, basically. I just didn’t expect the Golden Huggers jokes accompanying the Bayley/Ibushi pic in the photos thread to be predictive.

Anyway there’s that angle, where I have no clue what’s happening or where it’s going, and then the main, which... yeah, the opposite. Or Lashley just wins again, which would lead everyone to eventually come to the realization that Roman actually works better conventional WWE main events than he does, and maybe we were wrong to reject him. I mean, probably not. But maybe.

And "If you can't get along, I'm sending you both back to NXT" was right there.  Which at this point I wish they both were.

Hypocrite I am (in this case), I did flip back a couple times, and aside from that nothing took. That was a nice little match that started with some really snug matwork that looked like the two were trying to rip each other's heads off. And it's Sarah and Ember, so hey

Everything else was the Cooking Channel while I was listening to records FYI

If it's what I think it is then I have a bad feeling about this. I'm all for stories like that if done right. But this is WWE and I don't trust them one bit with it. That said I'm hoping it was meant in a sister type way but I doubt it.

Remember when Stephanie promised us LGBT storylines? Well, here we go.

There was a rumour last year (maybe the year before?) about Steph wanting a "tasteful same-sex angle"

Yeah, tasteful. From the same company bringing back Hogan.

Don't know whether one should go with Mike from Breaking Bad shaking his head or Bill Hicks doing the Goatboy laugh on Youtube with that one. Both?

That would help the fantasy booked "womens war games" being discussed in the nxt thread.

I could see Roman and Lashley going to some sort of draw via double countout or DQ to then set up a triple threat at summerslam. I could also see Brock winning that match to close the show. Then Braun cashes in the next night on RAW to win the title and send Brock packing to UFC.

When/If WWE tries a "tasteful" same sex storyline, Rippa's going to get carpal tunnel syndrome from all the thread-locking he'll have to do.

Except for the part where Brock a) shows up two nights in a row; and b) loses before leaving.

Eh I think it was meant in a sisterly way and it will lead to one of them turning, either Sasha is baiting Bayley or the real Bayley is the one who violently attacked her a few weeks back.

Of course this is assuming they actually pull the trigger on something.

Oh and that little tag match of theirs was so much better than either women's title match from Extreme Rules.

Ember vs. Logan was also better than the title matches from Extreme Rules.

Both triple threats were good but "push Roman" will not go away ugh.

Corbin: Why didn't you put me in one of the matches?

Angle: You didn't come to the ring during the twenty minute opening segment?

Hulk Hogan needs to come back next week to help Lashley beat Reigns so he can then profess his undying love for him. And THAT turns out to be the tasteful same-sex angle.  They can go all Rocky III on the beach for the SummerSlam montage.

Yeah- but even then I'm a little worried. The reaction from fans to it, even if it was meant in a sisterly way, gives me flashbacks to when Big E/Kofi/Xavier formed...and I think the reaction will be the same if this leads to a turn, even if the turn seems pretty etched in stone from the people all about this angle in waiting saying "But...but my fantasy booking was Sasha and Bayley as a couple! It was my fantasy booking and that means WWE PROMISED!"
