Kashin In: The Seth Rollins Meets The Pope and St. Peter at the Pearly Gates Edition (9-28-2015)

RAW

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Raw emanated from The First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York. WWE is currently in a ratings slump with very little on the creative front setting the word on fire as of late. There a few bright spots here and there, but the sum of its parts are not adding up to something sustainable for the long term. Can WWE get out of their creative funk by putting on a compelling three hour show that features a good balance of wrestling and storyline progression? The answer to that question can be found throughout this blog. Without further ado, let’s dissect tonight’s episode of Raw in no particular order.

The Mental Ward: Lights, Camera, Action…..

Celebs

I first discovered pro wrestling in the mid-1980s. “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes doing battle with “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton inside a steel cage is one of my earliest wrestling memories. However, when I saw “Nature Boy” Ric Flair and Sting go 60 minutes at the first Clash of the Champions, I was hooked for life. THAT was storytelling. THAT was drama. THAT was pro wrestling. In my youth Hulkamania ran wild. In my high school and college years, The Attitude Era redefined the industry. In my adult years, things just haven’t been the same. A spark is missing. The sport I loved has morphed into something almost unrecognizable at times. Yet, I still watch. I cling to hope that pro wrestling will one day again return to past glory. Webster defines insanity as doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result. Ladies and gentlemen, come on in. We’re all friends here. Welcome back to, “The Mental Ward.”

The PWA Show: Don’t Be A Lemon, Be A Rosebud!

RENEE

This week Chad and Keila try to follow the advice of WWE Superstar, Adam Rose, and find all the good that WWE has to offer these days…..even though the good stuff has been steadily dwindling since Wrestlemania. They discuss this past Monday’s RAW, injury news concerning Jey Uso and Daniel Bryan,  recent negative comments about pro wrestling from CM Punk, TNA’s money woes, top Japanese talent headed to ROH next month, and a whole lot more! Joining the show for “The PWA Hotseat” this week is the ECWA Women’s Champion, Renee Michelle! She talks about breaking into pro wrestling and how a background in martial arts helped her both mentally and physically prepare for the squared circle. She also talks about her growing rivalry with third generation star, Tessa Blanchard and talks about her future career goals. It’s a great look at one of the fastest rising female stars in pro wrestling today! Don’t miss all this and much more on this week’s edition of The PWA Show….YOUR pro wrestling authority!

Glam Slam: NXT (4-1-15) & WWE Smackdown (4-2-15)

SMACKDOWN
Hi guys! Welcome to this week’s edition of The Glam Slam! lot’s of NXT and WWE action to cover so let’s get started!
NXT (Air Date: 4/1/15)
  • Bayley Defeated Emma. Emma came out almost making fun of her once bubbly gimmick looking very annoyed. I like the change in Emma’s character and maybe the change will be beneficial to her in the future. I also wish they would change Bayley’s gimmick as well. The pacing of this match was off I am not sure if it was because Emma is not used to wrestling as heel or if their chemistry was just off either way, not a terrible match but of course there is always room for improvement!

Glam Slam: NXT (3-25-15) & WWE Smackdown (3-26-15)

SMACKDOWN
Hi guys! Welcome to this week’s edition of The Glam Slam! Lots of great action this week so let’s get right to it!
NXT (3/25/15)
  • Sasha Banks defeated Alexa Bliss in an NXT Divas Title match. Typical match between these two Banks outshined Bliss as per usual however Bliss did get a few “Bliss” chants which was very surprising. Maybe she is slowly winning over the crowd, but me not so much.

Glam Slam:Big Show or Big Baby?

bigshowcrying

If you have watched Raw or Smack down within that past month you have noticed that big show has been crying A LOT. Stephanie McMahon is constantly making him do things that he doesn’t want to do by saying things like “think of your family they depend on you” and talking about his financial state. (Which all of us know is a huge lie but, Kayfabe aside) Triple H has been using him to bully other wrestlers and all around trying to break him. All the while he is crying uncontrollable. What has brought his character to this point? The Big Show is 11 time tag team champion and he has held every title in the WWE.
