Josh Mathews interviewed Cody Rhodes on the app. He said he has a chance tonight to be vindicated about Sandow. He said beating Sandow would make him the #1 Contender.
Cody Rhodes vs Damien Sandow
|"Cody didn't learn that from daddy." - JBL|
Paul Heyman was walking to the ring with his arm in a sling. This rhymes.
|"CM Punk gave Brock Lesnar all he could handle." - Paul Heyman|
Layla was on the app. She said she had a special thing with AJ, by not liking Kaitlyn.
AJ Lee and Layla vs The Funkadactyl's
|"Where is Planet Funk?" - JBL|
|"I pitched a reality show - Total Announcers" - JBL|
A WWE ref named John Kohn got interviewed about what Triple H did. The ref thought Triple H did a great job and called it right down the middle. He didn't mention Triple H pedigreeing DB and said Triple H did a "fair job". The ref said it was fine because the bell didn't ring when he hit it, so Triple H was in the right.
Josh seemed to have no idea as to who Dolph was facing despite it being announced.
Handicap Match - The Shield vs Dolph Ziggler
Alberto Del Rio vs Sin Cara
Kofi Kingston said he was at a loss for words for what happened last night. He said he better not comment on Dolph Ziggler's speaking up. Kofi said he wasn't going to say anything and said "the dynamic of this company has already been changed".
|"Being on a plane and watching LAX fade in the background, that is real happiness to us." - Zeb Coulter|
The Real American's vs The Prime Time Players
Are the PTP's faces now?
|"I don't know what you call that other than painful." - JBL|
|"Are you sure you wanna do that to The Shield?" - The Big Show|
We got some clips from Summerslam. I reviewed the show here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/08/wwe-summerslam-results-and-review.html
If you didn't see Summerslam, check out Brock Lesnar vs CM Punk. It was awesome and brutal. Maybe WWE's 2nd best match this year. Christian/Alberto was also good and the main was good. I thought it was a great show as a whole.
Ryback bullied someone. He kicked him out of the locker room, threw his stuff around and made him put it under a shower.
Handicap Match - The Shield vs The Big Show
I'll take double Shield over double Khali like last week, any day.
|"I'm sorry I didn't take your arm off and take it home with me." - CM Punk|
On a side note, Drew McIntyre and Alberto Del Rio actually got into a real life fight yesterday as a team, which was the reason for the black eye. I was told, ADR didn't win.
Truth did a promo on the app. He said "if you kick my dog, I'll kick your cat" and was freaked out by the Wyatt's.
R-Truth vs Bray Wyatt
This is Bray Wyatt's debut match on Raw.
Alex Riley was interviewed on the app. He said Triple H cut the legs off of Daniel Bryan. He said a lot of guys were mad. They showed their stage and showed that it was near a production truck with Randy Orton's picture on it. Alex said that speaks for everything.
WWE did a promo for Los Matadores. Who are Los Matadores? Los Matadores are Primo and Epico. Los Matadores seems to be a comedy gimmick but really can't do any worse for Primo and Epico at this point.

The Uso's vs 3MB
The Miz was interviewed on the app. He said he helped make a monumental Summerslam. Miz said "if you're gonna interuppted the Miz when I'm hosting, you're gonna get laid out". And "I guess I out Fandango'd Fandango". He then told Josh that he is his "Baba Booey" as they will announcer together on WWE Main Event on Wednesday, which I will be reviewing with pics and gifs live!
The Miz vs Wade Barrett
Brad told Stephanie that Daniel Bryan is in the building.
Paul Heyman was interviewed on the app. He liked how Punk took care of Axel and said "he's coming home, he's getting here".
Randy Orton's WWE Championship Coronation
|"Daniel Bryan, you need to check your ego at the door bub just like I do every week. I have to do what's right for business." - Triple H | " HAHAHAA" - Me|
|"I told you so." - Randy Orton|
Overall thoughts: I thought it was a good show overall but aside from some decent but quick matches, there wasn't a lot of great wrestling.
