#RAWisDVR: Greg DeMarco’s Accelerated WWE Raw Review for 2/4/19

Read it, it’s funny!



WWE Raw is DVR

Greg DeMarco presents a very special review of WWE Raw, on DVR! What will Greg watch, what will he FAST FORWARD, and how long will it take to watch a 3-hour Raw?

Daddy’s back with a special look at WWE Raw! As many of you know, I live on the west coast, and my version of YouTube TV gives me Raw on the west coast feed, so I watch it later. I also record it, so this is the DVR version. Enjoy the bullet points! I am keeping time on a stopwatch (on my phone), so you will get timestamps throughout the show, and I will try to throw in a real time comparison as well so you can see how much time I am saving when I FAST FORWARD!

This is an experiment, I hope you like it!

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 0:00

Stephanie McMahon kicks the show off with Becky Lynch!

  • No surprise here, Becky Lynch interrupts Stephanie. Becky’s entrance is one I won’t fast forward. Becky’s too hot for that.
  • Even the crowd doesn’t buy Stephanie doing a big-time intro for Becky. We all know where this story is going.
  • Stephanie McMahon is horrible at “fake sympathy.”
  • Becky refusing medical treatment is so logical, I love it. She already lost one opportunity thanks to injury. And in her face you can see it—she’s hurt and could lose it. DO YOU NOT SEE HOW GREAT THIS STORY IS???
  • Steph hasn’t had to struggle? Listen to a Bruce Prichard podcast, you’ll see how hard Vince McMahon was on his kids. Hell, it drove Shane out!
  • Someone forgot to tell Portland that the YES chants are over now. Over as in done, not over in wrestling terms.
  • Becky attacking Steph wasn’t as involved as Twitter made it seem, but it worked. We still have two months to go!

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 11:55


#RAWisDVR timestamp: 12:15

Becky Lynch is shown the door, but just so happens to see Ronda Rousey

  • I have no idea why Becky didn’t punch Ronda is in the face.
  • I actually LOVE Ronda talking about selling a PPV. That was a huge deal in UFC, and this makes their match feel like a real fight.
  • “Ice and Advil, bitch!” is a great line.

RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey vs. Liv Morgan

  • FAST FORWARD Ronda’s entrance.
  • Liv Morgan is vastly underrated, in so many ways.
  • The stomach punch was fantastic.
  • Short but effective.

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 15:47

RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey vs. Sarah Logan

  • Ronda acknowledges the boos, and I am here for it. There are no faces and heels.
  • Liv Morgan still selling the arm!
  • FAST FORWARD the commercials!
  • Ronda has done a hell of a job adapting the UFC style to a WWE ring. She truly gets better with each outing.
  • Does Ruby want some?
  • Smart move…save that match. Elimination Chamber, maybe?
  • Ruby Riott is a terrible Gorilla Position promo.
  • And Dasha Fuentes is no Charly Caruso. Seriously.

Here comes Heavy Machinery and it’s time to FAST FORWARD!

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 21:59 (show time, 33:39)

There’s Charly!

  • Miranda Morales will be much happier about Sasha Banks’ hair tonight. Oh, and about Bayley, too.
  • No one can believe Nikki Cross & Alicia Fox will win this match. NO ONE.

Fatal 4-Way: The Revival vs. Lucha House Party vs. B-Team vs. Heavy Machinery

  • Curtis Axel, still NEVER ELIMINATED!
  • I give Michael Cole credit for acknowledging that this idea was stolen from Smackdown.
  • Bobby Roode & Chad Gable, much like The Miz and Shane McMahon, watch on a TV backstage.
  • Heavy Machinery is the Bayley of the tag team division. Great for the kids, always has a place on the roster, occasionally in the mix.
  • OTIS looks so lost! At least Heavy Machinery understands their place on the roster.
  • FAST FORWARD the commercials!
  • At least we didn’t miss any eliminations.
  • The Revival are so damn good.
  • Oh, there’s Roode and Gable again!
  • Lince Dorado is crazy underrated.
  • Why does Otis “call this the Caterpillar?” Caterpillars don’t do that! Is it because Caterpillar is a machinery company?
  • Oh, so it wasn’t elimination? Raw, the three-hour show, gets a one-fall match, but Smackdown, the two-hour show, gets an elimination match?
  • At least The Revival won!

Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder are backstage!

  • Curt Hawkins apparently forgot how long Zack Ryder has been off of television.
  • These two losers are making six-figure salaries, and Ryder is hooked up with Chelsea Green.
  • Could Hawkins & Ryder be a WrestleMania story?

Kurt Angle has a conversation with Apollo Crews!

  • I really hope we see Apollo again tonight. That pose down was fantastic.

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 34:49

Kurt Angle is here!

  • I didn’t FAST FORWARD the entrance, mainly because I was catching this report up.
  • But I will FAST FORWARD Kurt’s promo until someone interrupts!
  • Oh, it’s Baron Corbin. He sucks.
  • Blah blah blah blah? That’s what we say to YOUR promos, Baron Corbin Sucks?
  • Wrap this up? That’s ALSO what we say to you!
  • FAST FORWARD to Drew McIntyre
  • I feel like Drew deserves better, but if he’s the guy to retire Kurt Angle? I am okay with that.
  • Telling a crowd to “shut your mouths” is so effective.
  • Oh yay, Braun The Novelty Act is here!
  • I imagine we’re seeing this tag team match later?

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 40:21

FAST FORWARD commercials, highlights, and more!

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 41:11 (real time 1:12)

Bayley & Sasha Banks vs. Nikki Cross & Alicia Fox

  • Pre-match attack, eh? DIdn’t see that one coming. (Seriously)
  • Michael Cole tells us that Sasha hasn’t moved while Sasha is moving.

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 43:38

FAST FORWARD commercials

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 43:51

Bayley & Sasha Banks vs. Nikki Cross & Alicia Fox (for reals this time)

  • And we come back from commercial with Bayley in full control of the match, because of course we do.
  • How long before Vince McMahon realizes Nikki Cross & OTIS are comedy gold together?
  • Renee Young totally fangirling for Sasha & Bayley is funny.
  • “They have to earn it, just like everyone else.” Except anyone on the Smackdown roster! They just declare for the match.
  • “We know how Sasha’s ego is fragile.”
  • Alicia Fox just chopped Bayley’s um…pelvic…area.
  • BTW, we have Sasha—heel—teaming with Bayley—face—against Nikki—face—and Alicia—heel. Don’t tell me the alignment isn’t dead.
  • And Bayley wins. SHOCKED.

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 49:49

FAST FORWARD through the commercials!

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 50:18 (real time 1:30)

Apollo Crews promo

  • Why do we have Apollo, Drake Maverick and Razar promoing about Kurt Angle’s match in 2019?

The Road Dogg does NOT make me FAST FORWARD!

  • Excuse me while I mark out like an Attitude Era mark again. “PORTLAND, OREGON…WELCOME TO THE DAWG HOUSE!”
  • Lol James didn’t even bother to day “former.”
  • Now I will FAST FORWARD Jeff Jarrett’s entrance, but I am happy we finally got With My Baby Tonight!
  • “HELLO I AM ELIATH!” he had to say it a few times, but finally got everyone’s attention.
  • “Shouldn’t you be on Smackdown tanking their ratings? You gotta come to Raw and ruin that, too?”
  • So the fans chant with Elias, he’s a babyface, right? NO! Those don’t exist anymore.

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 58:12

FAST FORWARD the commercials!

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 59:25

Jeff Jarrett vs. Elias

  • Really tempted to FAST FORWARD this match, but I expect it to be short.
  • I did indeed FAST FORWARD and came back just in time to Drift Away.
  • Road Dogg attacks Elias? WHAT?!?!
  • Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand the guitar doesn’t break. Did they forget to remove the reinforcement?
  • One thing I love is that Road Dogg is the true star here, way more than Jeff Jarrett. The winners get to write history, folks!


Dana Brooke apologizes to Natalya

  • I’m sure this is leading to something, but it sucks.
  • Did Nattie get some injections in her face or something?

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 1:03:28

FAST FORWARD commercials, earlier tonight, commentators, etc.

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 1:04:01

Finn Balor is with Charly Caruso!

  • He’s tough, just like Becky Lynch. Watch out, you might get suspended!

Finn Balor vs. Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley

  • #FinnBalorsDick is NOT SHOWN because we need to see Royal Rumble stills. Sorry Miranda. Missed opportunity for me to FAST FORWARD.
  • Oh god more hightlights? FAST FORWARD.
  • Lio Rush looks like he’s ready to join New Day with those tights.
  • Unpopular take: Lio Rush should voiceover the opening video for WrestleMania 35. Fight me!
  • Bobby is talking??? Isn’t that why he has Lio? I guess today was our reminder as to WHY Lio Rush is with Bobby Lashley.
  • Ok let’s just get to Finn vs. Lio.
  • And Lashley still attacks Balor. Why not, eh?
  • The ref should have just rang the damn bell and given Finn his shot anyway.

Finn Balor vs. Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley Lio Rush

  • I wonder how many people are wondering why the Man Of The Hour has the word Moth on his tights?
  • And Lashley is kicked out as we FAST FORWARD the commercials!
  • Looks like we got back just in time for the finish—NO! Lio is too quick.
  • I can’t remember the last time a crowd popped for an Abdominal Stretch. Thank you, Portland.
  • Lio Rush is honestly fantastic.
  • Balor wins, and this match was probably better than Balor vs. Lashley would have been.
  • Renee has become the WWE’s most annoying announcer.
  • Why is Finn laughing at his opponent after a win? That’s right—BECAUSE FACES AND HEELS DON’T EXIST ANYMORE!
  • Balor is hurt, but can still do the Balor Arms and flex!
  • Oh, back to selling.

And here’s Paige!

  • Paige is gorgeous.
  • But I am going to FAST FORWARD the trailer, and commercials.

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 1:17:51 (real time 2:20:19)

Moment of Bliss with Alexa Bliss and EC3

  • We’ve officially saved over an hour of time!
  • Isn’t EC3 already in WWE if he’s appearing on Raw and Smackdown? Hell, NXT is part of WWE!
  • Remember when Alexa was topless in the lockerroom, and I praised her for not using her sexuality? Well that’s over now, and I am here for ECBLISS. (It’s okay, she really likes him. Totally really.)
  • “He loves a good talk show!”
  • Alexa Bliss’s reaction to be interrupted is priceless.
  • “How dare you interrupt my interrupt.”
  • “I don’t want to be out here any more than you want me to be out here.”
  • THIS Dean Ambrose is the best, especially since his wife is on commentary.
  • “Where are EC 1 and 2?”
  • EC3 throws a hell of a worked punch!

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 1:25:32

FAST FORWARD the commercials!

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 1:25:51

EC3 vs. Dean Ambrose

  • So EC3 can talk!
  • Have a mentioned how glad I am that they let him keep the EC3 name? Maybe we’ll get Dixie Carter some day!
  • Why is the McMahon family still trying to “determine which brand they’ll be on?” I feel like there’s a better story there and they’re simply not telling it.
  • Jackknife cover gets three! Ambrose didn’t even try to kick out. I really wish Alexa Bliss had interfered on EC3’s behalf.


#RAWisDVR timestamp: 1:29:59

You do not FAST FORWARD Mojo Rawley!

  • I don’t care what any of you think, I love Mojo talking to the mirror. Don’t @ me.
  • Seriously, this man has talent.

FAST FORWARD the entrances!

Kurt Angle & Braun The Novelty Act vs. Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin Sucks

  • FAST FORWARD the commercials!
  • I think I need to start calling Kurt Angle Kurt The Ram, because that’s how he makes me feel.
  • FAST FORWARD the restholds
  • How is this the main event?
  • Kurt Angle was dead weight for that Angle Slam by Drew McIntyre.
  • Nostalgia & Novelty is a great working name for this Braun & Angle tag team.
  • Maybe they can beat The Revival next week!
  • Baron Corbin is like an invitation to FAST FORWARD.
  • I love Drew McIntyre, but he’s the only reason I am don’t FAST FORWARD even more here.
  • That’s the dumbest disqualification ever. But it ended this match, which makes me happy.
  • I am pretty sure Angle hit his fucking head on the stairs. Seriously, RETIRE!
  • I can only hope that Kurt’s WrestleMania match is limited to a six-man tag of some kind involving Strowman, Corbin (yeesh), McIntyre, Dolph Ziggler, and maybe Jinder?
  • Raw ends with Kurt Angle—this is a real story now.

#RAWisDVR timestamp: 1:40:01 (real time 3:00:00)

Time saved: 1 hour and 20 minutes!

What did you think? Should #RAWisDVR be a thing moving forward? Do you want to see #SmackdownTaped tomorrow night?

Greg DeMarco’s 2023 WWE SummerSlam Review

The biggest party of the summer comes to Detroit, when WWE SummerSlam 2023 delivers an action packed event that easily exceeds expectations.



Cody Lesnar SummerSlam

The biggest party of the summer comes to Detroit, when WWE SummerSlam 2023 delivers an action packed event that easily exceeds expectations.

WWE presents SummerSlam 2023 live from ford field in Detroit in front of over 59k fans–who provided an electric atmosphere. Overall the card featured either matches, many of them delivering at or above expectations.

Read on for my thoughts, and even some ratings!

How I am rating segments:

I am using “The Line of DeMarco-cation,” which is for entertainment. the line is if I was entertained. You can have three main results:

  • ABOVE the Line of DeMarco-cation
  • AT the Line of DeMarco-cation
  • BELOW the Line of DeMarco-cation

If necessary, i reserve the right to go WAY ABOVE or WAY BELOW. Significant segments can be rated. individual and overall ratings are totally subjective.

It’s simple: ENTERTAIN ME!

Logan Paul vs. Ricochet

  • Welcome to the biggest match of Ricochet’s career.
  • Samantha Irvin’s outfit matches Logan Paul, not Ricochet — SWERVE, BRO!
  • Ricochet is a star, and I love seeing him treated like one.
  • Rocket Mortgage is donating $5k for every move off the top rope? This match alone might accumulate half a million.
  • I know Logan Paul needs to catch a private jet to Dallas and that’s why this is on first, but this is the perfect opener.
  • If you didn’t know who Logan Paul was, you’d think he was just another member of the roster–and that’s the biggest compliment you can give to him. He’s a damn good heel, too.
  • Paul using Braun Strowman’s powerslam–will we get Logan vs Braun?
  • This might be the best match either have had in a LONG time.
  • Logan Paul just hit a Buckshot Lariat over the top rope and to the floor. Sorry Hangman.
  • I love that refs continue to have names – like former Greg DeMarco Show guest Eddie Orengo (as El Bandido Jr).
  • I’d love to know Ricochet’s powerlifting numbers. Dude is deceptively strong.
  • Logan Paul flew two-thirds of the way across the ring on the Springboard Froggy Splash
  • This match is spotty–yes–but watch and learn Young Bucks. They are strung together by psychology and it all makes sense,
  • LOVE that finish. Logan Paul wins (as expected), but Ricochet is protected.
  • Think about that – RICOCHET IS PROTECTED.
  • Hell of a match.

Winner: Logan Paul (pinfall brass knucks shot)

WAY ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes

  • That video package–amazing. It likely telegraphed Cody’s win, but I don’t think many expect Cody to lose.
  • I love when people question Brock’s presence. Did you hear that pop?
  • Cody got a hell of a pop, too.
  • You can tell how much Brock Lesnar respects Cody Rhodes, as he opens up the arsenal for him.
  • I love that Brock simply stands center ring as the ref counts Cody out. Brock wants to win–doesn’t care how. That’s a little detail that shows how brilliant of a character Brock Lesnar is.
  • This is the fifth time Brock has gone for the count-out–and I love the psychology.
  • Now Brock does care how he wins–he wants to break Cody’s will.
  • Wait, is this Cody Rhodes’ mystery twin brother Cory Rhodes?
  • That top rope Cody Cutter was fantastic.
  • Not sure when Brock’s shorts got ripped, but it adds to this fight.
  • That’s what this is, a fight. And that is Brock Lesnar at his finest.
  • It might have been a happy accident, but Cody’s hand bouncing off the bottom rope before he finally grabs it to break the Kimura is another amazing little thing.
  • Brock is so slow and methodical, but snatches people up for the F5 in a flash. So good.
  • Cody Rhodes wins, after THREE Cross Rhodes. Good shit.
  • Interesting that the show of respect from Brock to Cody is considered Cody’s arrival.
  • Or maybe it’s just the arrival of “The American Nightmare.”
  • I will be very interested–as will all of you–to see what’s next for both men.

Winner: Cody Rhodes (pinfall, three Cross Rhodes)

WAY ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

NOTE: Very interesting that Roman Reigns was featured in the PayBack promo, as well as Logan Paul. I wouldn’t expect either to be on that card.

Slim Jim SummerSlam Battle Royal

  • I have to admit, it just feels right to have Slim Jim back in my wrestling.
  • This better be good since it cost us Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus.
  • I hope Sheamus got a full entrance for the crowd.
  • Oh look, Omos still works here!
  • Chad Gable is so damn good.
  • Austin Theory is in this match? And didn’t get an entrance?
  • At WrestleMania 30, Big E was in the Andre The Royal Giant Memorial Battle Rumble, didn’t get an entrance, and didn’t even get to carry his Intercontinental Champion. And I don’t even think his elimination was mentioned by commentary (I’d have to go back and check).
  • Santos Escobar eliminating Austin Theory at least makes sense.
  • LA Knight barely breathes and the crowd gets ELECTRIC.
  • I haven’t made as many bullet points because this has actually been a really good battle royal!
  • I’d love to know who the agent was–fantastically done.

Winner: LA Knight (last eliminates Sheamus)

AT The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

MMA Rules Match – Ronda Rousey vs. Shayna Baszler

  • Some of the shots during the entrance make me want WWE to get rid of stages altogether, and stick with this type of entrance.
  • Also, it’s a reminder that I hate major wrestling events in daylight.
  • This being an MMA Rules Match seems to be a missed opportunity at having a special guest referee.
  • The fans DO NOT CARE About this match, and I see why.
  • I am all for Ronda being able to go out how she wants to go out, and the talent pushing their own idea forward. But sometimes, you gotta say no.
  • Some matches also play much better in an arena instead of a stadium (Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair from WrestleMania comes to mind). This is one of those matches.
  • Whenever NXT had an “unsanctioned match,” the ref wore all black. That’s what we should have done here.
  • Now we have doctors checking on Shayna? Really? I know we want to put over how tough she is, but…..
  • The crowd pops out of relief when it’s over.
  • Do this on Raw, not here. Give Becky and Trish this spot.

Winner: Shayna Baszler (technical submission, Kirifuda Clutch)

BELOW The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

Intercontinental Championship: Drew McIntyre vs. GUNTHER (c) 

  • My Peacock membership doesn’t let me see the video package here, and I am fine with that–it’s been a while since I’ve seen that AFLAC Duck, though.
  • Ludwig Kaiser must love doing the entrance, but honestly the act might be getting stale?
  • Corey Graves very poetic in pointing out that “records are meant to be broken.” That’s one of the core values of WWE at this point.
  • It does appear GUNTHER will be going it alone tonight as Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci are headed to the back. Let’s see if they stay there.
  • Interesting placement for this match, right after the ill-received MMA Rules Match.
  • Didn’t the internet tell us Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor was going on fourth?
  • Btw, this match is brought to you by Rocket Mortgage. Money talks, BAYBAY!
  • GUNTHER truly lives the “Ring General” gimmick.
  • As the match progresses, I honestly can’t see Drew winning here.
  • The simplicity of the finishing sequence really adds to GUNTHER: top rope slap fest, McIntyre crotched on the ropes, splash, lariat, powerbomb. Nothing fancy–trademark GUNTHER.

Winner, #ANDSTILL the Intercontinental Champion: GUNTHER (pinfall, powerbomb)

ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

World Heavyweight Championship: Finn Balor vs. Seth “Freakin'” Rollins (c) 

  • I presume we will get a bunch of Judgment Day shenanigans here, but I really needed Seth to go on last to further establish his championship. Instead, we are smack in the middle of the event (according to the Peacock slider, anyways)
  • Seth Rollins’ entrance + 58k people = a beautiful sight
  • The worst thing about this, to me, will be when Balor and Rollins are partners after Balor turns babyface.
  • Love Rollins tossing the vest at Balor.
  • Love the more unique start to the match.
  • Interesting that Rollins, with a win, moves to 5th all time for SummerSlam wins? I had no clue! Mr. SummerSlam anyone?
  • We keep naming refs, and I love it,
  • If you want an “inside look” at a match, start paying really close attention for a few minutes starting with the triplicate of dives from Seth Rollins. You’ll see a few things that the cameras picked up.
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE the Buckle Bomb into the barrier from Balor to Rollins. Should have known they’d do that, but it never crossed my mind. Brilliant.
  • Decent amount of overlap in the offense of this match and the one prior–in hindsight, they may have wanted to put GUNTHER/McIntyre on before Rousey/Baszler.
  • Fans boo’d the crap out of Damian Priest when he came down–but popped like hell for Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley.
  • I really enjoyed the story told with the Judgment Day. When Priest called for the briefcase to be used, it would have worked. When Balor called for it, it wasn’t going to work, and Damian Priest knew it. But he let Finn Balor sink himself anyway. That will definitely play again later when they fully implode.

Winner AND STILL World Heavyweight Champion: Seth Freakin’ Rollins (pinfall, Stomp on the Money In The Bank Briefcase)

WAY ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

WWE Women’s Championship: Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka (c) Bianca Belair

  • Very odd having Asuka enter second.
  • Charlotte Flair with the ode to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35 (IYKYK)
  • Did I miss the C4 ad read? I saw that Bianca Belair entered with some, which made me thing THAT was why she came in last, and now the C4 branding is around the ring, but no real mention? Or did I miss it? Was it only for Peacock Premium subscribers?
  • Very choppy match so far–and Charlotte has to basically stop the match to have Jessika Carr fix her outfit, leaving Belair and Asuka in the corner waiting until Asuka realized what was happening and tried to cover. The Double Natural Selection that followed was quite clunky.
  • Bianca nowhere near Charlotte Flair when the moonsault hit–is Bianca really that good? I seem to ask myself this during every big time Bianca match, dating back to WrestleMania 37 when I felt like Sasha Banks had to carry her.
  • I find myself wanting to fast forward to the finish, here. I’m not, but I kinda want to.
  • ANOTHER REF NAMED! Thank you, Michael Cole.
  • If IYO SKY cashes in here (which is easy to expect), I really hope it’s not right after Charlotte wins, getting her to #15. Granted, she could cash in DURING the match and make it a 4-way. But of everyone, I think Charlotte needs to eat the pin tonight.
  • We have now had medical personnel tending to one of the participants in the middle of each women’s match tonight–first Shayna Baszler, now Bianca Belair. Seems like a misstep on someone’s part.
  • Bianca with the heroic comeback, and a beautiful 450 Splash on Charlotte during the Figure Eight.
  • Charlotte gets misted but Bianca gets the pin???
  • Makes sense if we do the cash in here. as Bianca is hurt.

Winner, AND NEW WWE Women’s Champion: Bianca Belair (pinfall, small package)

  • Aaaaaaaand here comes IYO SKY.
  • I love Corey Graves telling Bianca to get the hell out of dodge.
  • IYO and Bayley take out everyone, and she is indeed cashing in.
  • Over The Moonsault, new champion, and the crowd goes nuts. Women’s Money In The Bank briefcase is still undefeated.
  • Nice World Of Stardom reference by Michael Cole, too.

Winner, AND NEW WWE Women’s Champion: IYO SKY (CMITB cash-in, pinfall, Over The Moonsault)

AT The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

There were some rough spots, but the cash in saved it for me.

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Match: Jey Uso vs. Roman Reigns (c) with Paul Heyman

  • I am timing this from the second Jey Uso’s theme hits through the end.
  • Man, Mike Rome is on one, and I am not sure if that’s a good thing. He doesn’t sound as fantastic as he usually does.
  • 12:34 from Jey’s music hitting to the bell ringing.
  • Roman is so slow and methodical, I don’t know if he realized Jey was going to dive so soon. Jey connected with Roman’s back, but that could have been really really bad.
  • I know this is Tribal Combat, but given the use of stairs earlier tonight, we might as well consider the stairs legal.
  • You know it’s an important match when Roman Reigns hits The Drive By, as he did on Jey Uso.
  • Table, Kendo Stick, and more early.
  • Jey clotheslining Roman over the top rope (with the Kendo Stick) and hitting the dive makes me think Jey got slightly lost earlier when he did the dive to a kneeling Roman’s back.
  • That was a MASSIVE powerbomb onto the chairs!
  • 35 minutes in (remember, since the start of Jey’s entrance, so 23 minutes into the match) and this is definitely just a touch slow. The story is amazing, so that’s my only complaint so far.
  • I have to wonder if Roman knew he was bleeding when he hopped the barricade to go into the crowd.
  • Aaaaaaaaaaaand here’s Solo Sikoa. That should surprise no one. We gotta get the whole family involved, right? At least the whole Bloodline.
  • Solo declining to help Roman up might be starting Solo’s arc in the story, but it wasn’t apparent enough and commentary had to fill in the blanks.
  • 50:22 since Jey’s entrance is the point where Jimmy shows up (pulling Jey out of the ring).
  • Jimmy hits the Superkick and leaves.
  • Spear through the table that was set-up about a week ago and Roman Reigns pins Jey Uso at 52:09 (from th estart of Jey’s entrance).

Winner AND STILL Undisputed WWE Universal Champion: Roman Reigns (pinfall, spear through the table)

AT The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

“At” might surprise you, but this was WAY too slow. Bell-to-bell it was roughly 40 minutes, and that was about 10 minutes too long. But the story is worth it in the end.

WWE SummerSlam 2023

Total Matches: 8

  • ABOVE the Line of DeMarco-cation – 4 matches (3 WAY ABOVE)
  • AT the Line of DeMarco-cation – 3 matches
  • BELOW the Line of DeMarco-cation – 1 match

One “bad” match and seven “good ones, four of those I’d call “great.” Three of the great ones I labeled as “WAY ABOVE” the line, which easily makes up for one match that was lacking. Hell, when even the Battle Royal is good, you know you watched a damn good show.

Overall Rating for WWE SummerSlam 2023: 9/10

King’s WrestleMania Rewind: Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka from WrestleMania 34

Chris king is back with one of the most underrated matches in WrestleMania history–Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka!



WWE WrestleMania 34 Charlotte Flair Asuka

Chris king is back with one of the most underrated matches in WrestleMania history–Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka!

We look back at Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka at WWE WrestleMania 34. ‘The Empress of Tomorrow’ put her unprecedented and historic undefeated streak of 914 days on the line against ‘The Queen’s’ SmackDown Women’s Championship.

For years, this was considered a dream match while Asuka dominated the roster in NXT, while Flair won numerous championships on the main roster on both Raw and SmackDown. The Empress made her long-awaited debut on the September 11th episode of Raw and began to tear through the competition.

Asuka outlasted all twenty-nine other women in the historic first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match to challenge for the title of her choosing. At Fastlane, she made her choice.

The WWE Universe was so excited for this match myself included. Both superstars delivered a fantastic performance on the Grandest Stage of Them All executing counter after counter. Asuka showed off some nasty-looking kicks to her opponent, and Flair hit a thunderous Spanish Fly off the top rope. Flair was seconds away from defeat at the hands of The Empress but she locked in Figure Eight and Asuka was forced to tap out.

I can’t even begin to explain how shocked I was at this outcome, as nearly everyone expected The Empress to continue her undefeated streak and walk away with the women’s title. This controversial decision was the downfall of Asuka’s momentum. She would ultimately win the SmackDown Women’s Championship at the 2018 TLC pay-per-view in the triple-threat ladder match.

Fast forward to this year when Asuka has recently returned with her Japanese-inspired persona Kana. Kana is dangerous and ruthless and is heading into a championship with Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 39. The Empress has regained all her momentum and is highly favored to walk away with the Raw Women’s Championship. Let’s hope that Asuka and Belair can tear the house down and deliver an A+ grade match both women are fully capable of.
