WWE RAW Live-Blog 2014.4.21

10:17PM having trouble again with the live blog, moving on to a "Part 2" post.

10:08 PM On to Rob Van Dam v. Cesaro.
Cap_Kaveman
Did @HeymanHustle's client Brock Lesnar defeat the Undertaker? This is the first I'm hearing of this. #RAW
4/21/14, 9:52 PM
Boos are coming out against the people who are cheering for "RVD."
FaceVHeel
Whew.....RVD looks horrible, 3 botched spots already.
4/21/14, 9:53 PM
thesteelcage
Cesaro is strangely gifted at making poor timing and awkward ring chemistry look not so bad. Good match with RVD, then. #RAW
4/21/14, 9:53 PM
DylanWaco
Rvd is working awkwardly with Cesaro. Time to never wrestle again
4/21/14, 9:53 PM
FaceVHeel
RVD clearly did not use his vape yesterday and opted for the one-hitter. #gassed
4/21/14, 9:54 PM (4/20 joke)
thesteelcage
How long does weed stay in your system? It's 4/21, you guys. Someone let RVD know. #RAW
4/21/14, 9:55 PM
The match continues in break on the app, where Paul Heyman is talking to the guys at the announce table. Cesaro with a good drop kick. Something I don't see him even do often. And back to USA.
mypwaccount
Rob has gotten very slow. Big ups to what the man has done in his career but it's probably best for him to call it a career now.
4/21/14, 10:01 PM
FaceVHeel
Guess RVD needed a few minutes to warm-up. Less botchy now.
4/21/14, 10:03 PM
And out comes Jack Swagger to throw off Cesaro. Van Dam tries to take advantage, but Cesaro catches him. Action outside the ring now. Swagger, still is able to hit Cesaro into the ring post while the ref isn't watching. The ref counts out Cesaro, and Rob Van Dam is your winner.
mare_bare
i had a feeling this was going to happen. this way its cesaro swags at extreme rules. continues feud. #RAW
4/21/14, 10:04 PM
thesteelcage
RVD looks like he's going to pass out from exhaustion. What a joke. #RAW
4/21/14, 10:05 PM
FaceVHeel
Cesaro/Swagger at Extreme Rules! YAY!
4/21/14, 10:05 PM



9:51 PM John Cena tlaks with Renee Young, and out come the half cheers and half jeers.

Meanwhile, Cesaro's out, and so is his new theme, that has a very prevalent siren in it.
HEELWrestling
This is fucking weird. It's like five genres in one song.

Cesaro has new music...it's a siren and then generic rock. With sirens. Hooray. #RAW
4/21/14, 9:45 PM
ahess49
Wow. This new Cesaro music is baaaaaaad
4/21/14, 9:45 PM
mare_bare
NEW CESARO MUSIC! HES GOING TO FIGHT A FIRE??? #RAW
4/21/14, 9:46 PM
Superjew75
Cesaro's new music sucks so bad it could kill his momentum with the fans more than HHH ever buried anybody. #Raw
4/21/14, 9:46 PM
Meanwhile, Paul Heyman is talking ... and. ... commercial? What? Huh?
FaceVHeel
um, going to commercial during a Heyman promo? Shit move, WWE
4/21/14, 9:47 PM
thesteelcage
Uhhh. Why did Heyman just get cut off by a Godzilla commercial? Cue the air raid sirens again? #RAW
4/21/14, 9:47 PM
mare_bare
DID THEY REALLY JUST GO TO BREAK IN THE MIDDLE OF PAUL HEYMAN SPEAKING?! WTF @WWE GET YOUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT! #RAW
4/21/14, 9:47 PM
On the app, Paul Heyman keeps yelling about Brock Lesnar breaking the Undertaker's streak. This is how they're filling the commerical.
thesteelcage
Kevin Dunn sneezed and hit the wrong button. #RAW
4/21/14, 9:48 PM
FaceVHeel
Kevin Dunn now has more heat than Steph. You do not cut off Heyman.
4/21/14, 9:49 PM
I wonder if this will ever get to a weird point. Finally, Heyman gets cut off. RvD Comes out, and we'll have our match in the intercontinental tournament with Rob Van Dam v. Cesaro.

9:39 PM It's Layla v. Emma now.

4/21/14, 9:35 PM

I am probably the lone person that like Emma being paired w/ Santino.
4/21/14, 9:34 PM
ahess49
C'mon Layla pratfall...
4/21/14, 9:35 PM
So much hate on Layla. And Emma pulls out a sock of her own. And Cobras Layla! LOL
FaceVHeel
EMMA COBRA!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH FUCK NO THEY JUST MURDERED EMMA. OFFICIALLY DO NOT CARE. SORRY EMMA. #RAW

The Emma/Santino thing needs to end
4/21/14, 9:37 PM

This is getting a bit rapey.

4/21/14, 9:37 PM
_katierose13
...can we separate emma from santino now?
4/21/14, 9:38 PM
I'm pretty sure they will separate the two soon enough. Hopefuly it doesn't involve anything heel-ish.
FaceVHeel
Emma & Santino are great. All you grumps need to suck it.

9:33 PM Cody's wife on the match:
RealEdenWWE
Well if @Goldust would have been there for the save he wouldn't have gotten shoved like that. Cody was justified. Just saying... #Raw

@thesteelcage @ahess49 oh come on guys, you know it'll be the pre-show at Payback
4/21/14, 9:30 PM (to the inevitable Rhodes brothers match)
On the app, Emma and Santino are interviewed. Love those two.
SCOTTHALLNWO
Thanks to Ryback for the shout out....#HeyYo
4/21/14, 9:32 PM

9:29 PM Rybaxel are out to commentate on the upcoming tag teacm match between the Usos and Goldust & Cody Rhodes.
HEELWrestling
Remember when Ryback used to commentate in a leather jacket and just bury everybody? Good times.
4/21/14, 9:20 PM
ahess49
What's worse, the team name or the music?
4/21/14, 9:20 PM

Rybaxel on commentary...gold.

All right, time to inject some life back into the WWE Tag Team Championship.. right? #RAW
4/21/14, 9:23 PM
FaceVHeel
Um, a bit awkward for you to bring up Mr.Perfect drinking alcohol RIGHT in front of his son, Ryan.
4/21/14, 9:25 PM
The Usos win off a superkick Cody didn't see coming thanks to Cody not knowing another brother was tagged in. And Cody huffs off away from Goldust. While this happens, Rybaxel come in to attack The Usos.
FaceVHeel
RHODES BROTHERS BREAK UP NOOOOOOOOOO

Ryback should take The Miz's spot on #MainEvent commentary. #RAW

Well, here we go for Summer Slam, Cody as the heel v Goldust. Should be money.
4/21/14, 9:27 PM

NOW? Now they decide to move forward with a Rhodes Bros split? Weird. #RAW
4/21/14, 9:27 PM
FaceVHeel
Ryback actually added constructive things to commentary...

Ryback's commentary > The match #RAW
4/21/14, 9:26 PM

Weird that Ryback on commentary + a hilariously horrific theme song mashup could be what gets Rybaxel over in the tag division. #RAW
4/21/14, 9:28 PM


9:17 PM On the WWE App, the Goldust and Cody Rhodes are interviewed. They'll face the Usos tonight.

Others on twitter are talking about Adam Rose as they just showed another promo of his:

Evolution is looking quite dapper, arriving via limo and all. #RAW

4/21/14, 8:57 PM
Back from break, and out comes Evolution.

Triple H sounds like Patty and Selma talking at the same time. #RAW
4/21/14, 9:02 PM
They're showing old Evolution b-roll. I can see why this is so cool. Nothing is cooler than showing a bunch guys being whores with women in a night club, inter-spliced with half-naked man contact. I can see why Katie Donaldson loves this.

Ooh. classic #Evolution promo to remind us of the past. Or introduce the kiddos. Lovely. #RAW

Good classic wrestling promo going on here. The Shield vs Evolution #RAW
4/21/14, 9:10 PM
The Shield challenge, but almost all the heel wrestlers come out to stand with Evolution. So, everyone just stands around.
ahess49
No Cesaro out with the heels? Interesting...
4/21/14, 9:11 PM

Evolution is smart. Hire the #HEEL locker room over random security guards. #RAW

By the way, more El Torito stuff:
FaceVHeel
If Hornswoggle could actually wrestle, then a match w/ Torito would be something to look forward to.
4/21/14, 8:58 PM
NotThatTomGreen
If this is 3 & 1/2 MB, when will Hornswoggle quit the show due to a religious disagreement? #RAW
4/21/14, 8:54 PM

I'm going to give this segment a pass because Mascarita Dorada is a very talented guy.

It is going to suck when the ATF burns down the Wyatt compound.
4/21/14, 8:49 PM
And we're back with Los Matadores entering the ring. Oh dear, it's a six man tag including El Torito. Facing 3MB's Ginder Mahal, Drew McIntyre, and Hornswoggle.

4/21/14, 8:46 PM
And commercial.


8:43 PM On the app, Damien Sandow still complaining about his value to the company. And he's calling out Ziggler. Why? Because I wasn't paying attention due to my typing this. Sandow is calling Dolph a leech.

By the way, people are starting to bust Heyman's twitter chops about how he keeps tweeting how Brock beat the tweet.
davidbix
@HeymanHustle but did your client Brock Lesnar conquer the streak?

8:36 PM And we continue on with the intercontinental championship tournament. Wade Barrett (I refuse to call him ONLY Bad News Barret) and Sheamus.

Pyro for Barrett is an encouraging sign that there are at least short term plans for him.

By the way, Taz is apparently starting a live blog/radio (assuming will be available as podcast later) show starting tonight after RAW. I can't think of anyone else who I would rather NOT here than Taz.
ahess49
Haha, people hate Sheamus.
4/21/14, 8:23 PM
thesteelcage
Wasn't Sheamus injured last week, or something...? No? Pretending that didn't happen? Okay, then. #RAW
4/21/14, 8:24 PM
The crowd is half and half cheering between Sheamus and Barrett. Once again, much like Cena v. Cena-sucks, you can tell the difference between hopeful children, and men who cannot financially afford to leave their parents' basements.
thesteelcage
Sheamus doing his signature beatdown move in the ropes from the apron to avoid a 5 count now? Was the ref counting? Would be clever. #RAW
4/21/14, 8:30 PM
Sheamus and Barrett having a decent match. Sheamus even mocking Barrett's "boom" while he puts "White Noise" on him.
thesteelcage
Sheamus with a loud "BOOM!" before White Noise. Such a heel. #RAW
4/21/14, 8:32 PM (obviously a little joke from Josh)
thesteelcage
Legit jumped up at that two count. Let's go, @WadeBarrett!!! #RAW
4/21/14, 8:32 PM
Wade Barrett wins with a bull hammer. And as you an see above, those in the know wanted him to win.

And in the annals of "Too-Soon," Billi comes in with an entry.
