I was considering taking a long break from watching WWE since it’s been so bad for a long while but now I don’t think I will and will continue watching. I was really surprised to see how great RAW was last night. It was actually an excellent show all the way through. Why? It’s because Vince is no longer in control of RAW now and Paul Heyman is in charge of running RAW. Paul Heyman is on fire and is already doing a great job.
Why was RAW so good last night? Well for starters, there were a lot more wrestling matches than superstars cutting promos which was shocking. For months and months, there have been less wrestling on RAW in the past but there were a lot more of it last night. Every match on RAW last night were really good too.
Paul Heyman really knows his wrestling and I’m glad Vince put him in charge. It was a smart move.
While it’s a nice idea that AEW is gonna be bigger than WWE, it’s never gonna happen ’cause all AEW is gonna do is force WWE to do better. WWE could quickly go back on top in the ratings again now that Paul and Eric are in charge of the two brands.
Now I’m gonna be watching Smackdown tonight to see how much that show has improved now that Eric Bischoff is in charge of running SD Live. I actually can’t wait for tonight. WWE is trying all they can to improve themselves and it’s great to see actually. I think Vince finally woke up and now wants to give fans what they want… “wrestling” and they gave us that on RAW last night.
This is definitely gonna be a war between WWE and AEW. No doubt.
Well this is interesting. Just announced today, Paul Heyman has been named by WWE as the executive director of Monday Night RAW and Eric Bischoff has been named as the executive director of Smackdown Live. Both of these men were hired to be in charge of those brands. While those two are now in charge of running those two shows; however, it looks like Vince McMahon is still calling the shots ’cause like the article says the two must report to Vince McMahon.
Both of these men have one thing in common, though. They have experience in running wrestling companies. Like the article says Paul Heyman used to own ECW and Eric Bischoff was the president of WCW.
I know a lot of wrestling fans are getting skeptical of this but I think this is a pretty good idea. Heyman and Bischoff both know their wrestling ’cause they have a lot of experience in the business and they are very knowledgeable with wrestling. They definitely know their stuff.
I would give them a chance to see how they would do.
Some of you may ask, why is Vince doing this? Over the years in the WWE, Vince had full control of both RAW and Smackdown. He called the shots of everything and now it looks like Vince is finally giving up some control in WWE.
Is Vince finally waking up and realizing that he isn’t good anymore creatively? That could be a part of it but I think the real reason is that the XFL is about to be launched and he won’t have time to run both brands anymore. So he needs to give someone else to take over.
Another reason Vince is doing this is that ratings for both RAW and SD are still in trouble and this could be a ploy to help bring the ratings up. Could Paul and Eric shape up the wrestling business and take it to the next level? AEW is exploding and you can see that Vince is trying everything to compete with them.
I’m going to wait to see how Paul and Eric will do. I know a lot of wrestling fans out there will be skeptical of this but I’m gonna give these guys a chance. Paul and Eric could bring wrestling back to the WWE and that’s what I’m hoping and praying for. We’ll have to wait and see how they do.
Shocking news broke today in the world of MMA. Yes, you heard that right. Brock Lesnar is sick again. He had a relapse of Diverticulitis, which forced his fight against Junior Dos Santos to be canceled at UFC 131. Shane Carwin is set to replace Brock for that fight.
More on it, here.
This is very sad. Look like we’re going to get another long break from Brock Lesnar in UFC. Even worse, his career could be over soon.
He really loved the company and was hoping for another title run. Look like another title run won’t happen for him anytime soon. I hope he gets well.
He’s not everyone’s favorite athlete. You either love him or hate him, but I respect him for a lot of reasons.
Paul Heyman, exclusively revealed details on the upcoming new auobiography. Written by Brock Lesnar himself and co-written by Paul Heyman. In a book simply titled, “Death Clutch” set to hit stores, May 24th, later this Spring.
See the report, here.
Yes, I will probably end up buying it myself. Would be an interesting read. The book will probably be about his childhood all the way up to today. I’m sure he’ll have a lot to say about his childhood, his wrestling days, football days, UFC career, Sable & his family, his health, his love for hunting and fishing, etc. Sounds like he’s going to talk about everything about his life.
I don’t think he’s doing this book for the money. I think he’s doing it so people can understand him better. Maybe people won’t think he’s such a bad guy after reading this.
The picture above is Brock back in his WWE days. The question you have to ask is, will Brock ever return to the company someday if something happens to his UFC career again? Will Brock return to perform in WWE storylines like as guest host or a part time RAW General Manager type of role? While that would be interesting, I don’t see Brock coming back to WWE ever again. There’s a couple of reasons he will stay away from WWE forever: 1) He doesn’t get along with Vince McMahon too well 2) Brock wouldn’t do it without Paul Heyman.
Brock could go to TNA maybe instead, but I don’t see Brock going back to wrestling entertainment anytime soon. Even if Brock’s UFC/MMA career happens to end in the future, I don’t see him going back to wrestling. He wants nothing to do with professional wrestling anymore, although he still appreciates and respects the business.
In this video, Brock’s fellow WWE superstars that he worked with in the past speaks on his win at last Saturday night’s ppv. As you can see in the video, the ppv is just getting over with and people are leaving. So I guess those WWE guys there decided to stick around longer, to chat with fans, give autographs & take pictures, give interviews with the media, etc. The superstars you see in the video are Stone Cold, Jim Ross, Paul Heyman, and Bill Goldberg.
Only one missing is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The Rock was there at UFC 116, but he must of left the MGM Grand as soon as the ppv got over. Look like The Rock didn’t feel like dealing with the media and the fans. Oh well.
Enjoy this video.
Brock Lesnar has a Heavyweight title match against Frank Mir @ UFC 100 tomorrow night. Many people may think Frank Mir may beat Brock again, but Paul Heyman says Brock is ready to beat his ass, big time. Paul Heyman promises Brock will get his revenge against Frank Mir.
Those who don’t know, Paul Heyman was the former owner of the ECW wrestling company…when Vince McMahon bought out ECW from Heyman in real life…Paul Heyman continued to perform in the WWE as a manger for Brock Lesnar as you see in the pic above.
Read the interesting blog below, Paul Heyman always gives interesting thoughts in his speeches:
Although I have to work tomorrow night, a night shift, I will be buying the UFC 100 ppv and will record it on my DVR while I’m at work. I’ve been looking forward to this. I don’t want to miss the Lesnar vs. Mir champ match.
I think Lesnar will retain the title tomorrow, mark my words. Lesnar will be champ for a very long time.
