There have been weird rumors about Raw all day. First it started with vague reports that everything had been chaos even more so than usual and people were starting to get upset over...well. something. Then Meltzer made some vague post about how the panic at the show was real and due to fear of another, possibly staggering record low number tonight going up against the NBA, MLB, and NHL.

Now there are rumors that the Shane McMahon announcement tonight is going to be...controversial among fans. Whatever it ends up being. Voices of Wrestling is claiming its going to be some kind of Brawl for All style thing with cage dancers, but they make sheet up, I think. Even so, more established sources aren't bring specific but are saying people will definetly have strong opinions.

Now Jon Alba, a reporter in Florida who has been making his way into wrestling reporting the past few months, is backing up the shoot fight claim from VoW.

Please let this be true. Please let them be so dumb that we get Brawl for All 2.0.

I'm not sure where they're going with this. Seems to me like a different spin on the "jobber" matches. Those were definitely not shoot fights like Brawl for All. In fact the E is already getting heat for ripping off the concept from CHIKARA.

Maybe its the fourth glass of wild turkey, but it wasn't that bad lol.

I did get excited with the tease of Joe getting back in the ring.

The underground thing? Well if they let those guys do some sort of mma and keep the WWE guys out of it cool. It almost had a original Raw feel to it. Well remember the RAW girls they had when Raw first started?

To recap, Raw had:

-Montez Ford apparently getting poisoned and falling unconscious in the middle of a match.

-Shane McMahon's midlife crisis Fight Club. Complete with TV-14 strippers and jump cuts every .5 seconds. (This will be dropped and forgotten by October at the latest).

-Technical glitches throughout the show caused by a mysterious force.

-What looks to be Vince and Bruce Pritchard's take on Antifa. No way this ends well.

-Playing up a potential angle between a manager and a contestant from The Bachelor.

-Shayna Bazler and Sasha Banks have a singles match that goes to DQ because...Asuka attacked Bayley?

-Dominic Mysterio is facing Seth Rollins at Summerslam for ripping his father's eye out.

On the one hand, they did try something different. On the other hand, that seems to be "What if Vince Russo's slightly less insane cousin booked the show?"

Nope. Don't care. Worst part is that, IMO, Rollins is doing some of his best character work with this gimmick and it's being wasted in this feud.
Completely agree. You'll never hear him complain though because he's the ultimate yes man.

For real. They have been doing this Mysterio family program for way (way) too long. I can't believe they thought it was worth wrecking the credibility of Aliester Black for Dominik Mysterio's sake. Not to mention how many times this kid, who we've never seen actually wrestle, has punked Raw's top heel and his minion (who's pretty dang capable in the ring).

Rollins is dialed into this character but has to keep repeating the same messages over and over again because they won't move on from this feud. Let him move on and do something interesting with someone else.

I'm not sure if he's cleared to get back in the ring yet (or if he ever will), but that tease between Rollins and Samoa Joe was awesome.
