Liv Your Truth - Raw - 12/30/2019

Recommended Posts

Would probably still put the Kane/Lita wedding at the top of the list, especially classical Kane theme and Trish.

Has WWE ever not made a wedding angle that wasn’t entertaining?!  They should do these every week honestly.  They’re so stupid and entertaining and unlike anything else on TV really.  

And if Liv can leech off any of Rusev’s Heat from this, she’ll be among the Top 5 most over women on the roster.  

Man Rusev is just bulletproof.  No matter how dumb the angle, how awkward the delivery, no matter who wins, he always comes out of it white hot.  He should challenge Lesnar next week because he could lose and still come out of it more over.

I put Kane/Lita at #2 behind Savage/Liz. For wrestling weddings, nothing tops Jake, Taker, and Paul Bearer crashing the reception. The cobra in the box was just the epitome of evil.

Fuck off, Joey. There are so many other reasons why millennials don’t care. So many reasons. 

I'll give you that but take that out and the sentences before that have some truth to it.

Charlotte/Natalya was great. Styles/Orton seg was some good pro wrestling. That's about all I got.

Even though it just happened this year, they had me totally down for a 4 month build to another Orton/Styles Mania match. Especially since their match 2 weeks ago was killer.

Bix calling Lana and Liv fighting "domestic violence" on the Twitter is the cherry on top of this ice cream sundae.

100%. Which is why I edited it and backed off. I read it as the wedding segment alone being explanatory for why they lack millennial enthusiasm. Which is a dumb way to read it and I responded dumbly. 

I had a couple drinks while enjoying a wrestling wedding. My bad.

Not the first person to ever need to apologize for something said at a wedding after a little bit of the bubbly. 😉

if the ratings are any indicator, everything is struggling to find a millennial audience

Eh, me too but it's all good. Though I should have saved my liver for NYE.

"A kick ass brawl in the streets of New York". Yeah, watched by cast and crew and random passersby outside who were probably walking home from work wondering why someone was filming a fight with actual cameras instead of cell phones. 

The Lanas would be a fun gimmick, they can all rat-pack the non-blondes. Real Lana can use them as cannon fodder when Charlotte comes after them because she wasn't allowed in. Lacey can be the "enforcer". 

Vince would read that and immediately go

Aleister/Buddy looked like a man fighting himself if you squint real hard. I'm still amazed by how shitty really good tattoos can look on people every time I see Aleister.

Did you catch the very end with his reaction to being slapped? That was perfect.

Oh man... while I was looking for that I found this

We talk some shit about WWE shirts but that one takes the cake. 

EDIT: No pun intended

God I loved that wedding. It was bad then turned weird then ended great. The most WWE thing I've seen this year. Lana making out with Lashley and his makeup smearing all on her face was the highlight. Lashley suit was on point.

Liked the Alister/buddy match and Joe kicking ass. Looking forward to next week's Raw.

I wont even watch this wedding and know it cant top Liz/Savage with the whole Jake bit...

And even coming close to Parker/Sherri has got to be tough

Yeah, but I’d still rather watch Tess-Sami than Rusev-Lashley. So Impact wins in the long run. 

If we're keeping it 100, I have no desire to watch either one.

I haven't seen Total Divas in forever but I saw somewhere that Sonya/Mandy pitched a storyline?   I don't know if that's true..  they could be disappointed their idea was replaced with something like this I don't know.

Millenials have largely given up on cable TV.

And while I don't think the Vachon wedding is necessarily better, it has a level of anarchy that will never ever be seen again on WWE TV. It's like a Muppets segment.

if you really think about it, the Rusev/Russian thing was actually a few years early. 

Also, the whole "domestic violence" thing is actually something with definitions.. so unless Liv and Lana are living together in storyline, the only way it's DV is if what they did in storyline is considered being partners.

"The crowd died because they fought each other" - all things considered, the crowd was building up a hope in their minds that Lana was about to kiss Liv Morgan because it's a crowd treating this like it's Springer.

One more thing, Joey Ryan might be one of the worst possible messengers of indignation on this topic. Hand off the topic to somebody who hasn't worked intergender matches.

I'm happy they haven't made those characters a response to the 2016 election. The Americans lucked into it by being a show about Russian spies that started a few years too early, and even they never steered into the skid. I know we shouldn't hold wrestling to too high a standard, but fuck all of that. We already have enough lazy "art" about Trump and Putin. I don't need it in my wrestling.
