Same here..i wasn’t even going to watch it..but now..with Vince doing a live discussion..i’m really looking forward to it. 🙂
… Love this idea. Gonna be a Brand subscriber this Friday.
So is the discussion right here or is there another link?

So from that above quote by ‘Lazy Lane’ (lol)..i’m thinking it’s all happening right here..in this thread / topic. 🙂
BIG JOSH THE HEART AND SOUL OF THE BRAND IN DA HOUSE!!!!
I’m in the UK and wouldn’t normally torture myself watching Raw til 4am…with no fast forwarding the million ad breaks…but wanted to support the first Raw chat on the new Brand site!
Nice way to start off raw with the undertaker
Let the games begin!
gotta keep refreshing or auto refresh? wassup Big Josh.. Hello Vince!
You will need to keep refreshing the page to see new posts
If you could take creative control of one division in the WWE, which one would it be?
The whole enchilada. . . or bust.
The UT is WWE’s greatest creation, hands down .. What a career
what a crowd
I love Taker’s entrance, but it always feels a little off seeing him come out with the full entrance when there’s no opponent waiting in the ring? The slow, eerie entrance is meant to intimidate but there’s no recipient, feels weird!
Amazing to be so over for so many years.
Welcome bro!!..indeed..his entrance always gives me goosebumps.
Truly hope the wwe can have a strong segments through out the 3 hours of RAW
I was really hoping that they’d swerve us tonight, and have Steph open up the show with an in-ring promo
I’d be remiss if I didn’t admit wanting Paige to come out and correct Taker on whose house it is nowadays..
nice way for wwe to have a great pop with the crowd Vince -big josh
… Not to be a mark, but couldn’t Shane win and then just re-hire/not fire Taker? lol.
she wouldve been in the ministry back in the day
I am the instrument of change here in the WWE -Shane .. God, if only that were a shoot
Segment is great so far. Story still doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but Shane and Taker are killing it.
Lesnar will be involved with Shane v Taker at WM me thinks.
Nice back and forth trash talk and a fight , Nice! -big josh
Really? They couldn’t come up with a different line than Shane used on UT? Ugh ..
Undertaker calls Shane his “Daddy’s bitch,” but apparently he didn’t watch the show last week to hear Vince call him his bitch also.
Exactly my point. Such lazy writing. Besides that though, decent segment I guess.
Yeah, still a really good open, but how does Taker not care that Vince called him his bitch? lol.
Right. These are the details that would have been covered under Russo/Ferrara writing.
Nice! Vintage shane with the elbow to the undertaker -Big Josh
Incredible opening for Raw but can’t help feeling that moment came at the wrong end of the show?
Great open. Looks like Shane may have missed Taker though–bit of a miscalculation. Hope that shoulder is OK.
it looked like he barely got him vince . hope this is a strong start for raw vince. -big josh
now that’s an opening to raw good lord
yup. he missed
Not Bad . Strong Start for 3 hours of raw. hope the pace continues strong for all the segments -big josh
And now we can ready for at least 45 mins of filler ..
I was just gonna say..and now for 2 & 1/2 hours of the ‘same ole same ole’ garbage..hope i’m wrong.
Brother, the next 2 weeks are absolutely crucial for the wrestling biz. It’s the difference between saving wrestling and it going TNA aka RIP. Do you really think WWE will CLEAN SLATE EVERYTHING the day after Mania? We know the have the resources, but do they have the vision to execute?
I hope both are going to be okay to go after that crazy move Shane did! Wish Taker came out to his Ministry of Darkness music and gimmick just for this angle! Shane O Mac still a daredevil!
Wonder how the segments will be shortly. good, great, bad or crappy, i hope that its a strong raw before wrestlemania
brooklyn crowd is great , only a few other places turn it up like NY, smart idea for them to use this arena before monday before wrestlemania
I vote for a dog food eating segment!
Great question RIP. I certainly hope so. They do need change . . . badly—IMO.
i think taker was more to the end so shane could come down fully on table taker could have been over a little bit but personally the craziest thing i’ve seen on raw this year
How ya doin Vince?
I don’t think the plan was for Shane to take the table full boar–could be wrong.
this has to be the best start to raw so far in 2016
Cole calls Shane a “young man.”
Good spot but was it really necessary for Shane to do that? He could of risk an injury. Especially before WrestleMania
Good job hyping Shane/Taker.
i can tell whats about to happen. Aj styles comes out to interfere in the match, And zack ryder will beat jericho shortly
Good call Big J
Vince would you rather listen to Andre Corbeil cut E-Fed Promo’s or take a Shane O Mac Elbow Drop?
Bro–anything but Andre!
Dinner with Gab-Rick?? lol 🙂
Hahaa Andre is Vince’s Gary Delabate. I love it.
Called that one. figured aj will mess with jericho
Nice short match, thank god .. and Jericho is so much better as a heel
he is always a better heel, i cringe when hes a face. i liked when he was a heel against shawn michaels the best
Great win for Ryder but he gets no love for his win! WOO WOO WOO we know it
seen this so many times wrestler comes out asks for a match other wrestler say’s no to match get’s costed the match then 2 mins latter accept’s
See–I don’t like Jericho running from AJ—then accepting the match at Mania. Small detail–but, doesn’t make sense to me. I’m going to run . . . but . . . I’m going to fight him in 6 days. Just MO.
Exactly. It’s details like this that really get characters and storylines over.
Took 20 writers to come up with that lol
If there ever was a perfect time to use the expression “Quality not quantity” it’s now.
-Vince basically what will be the Build up, aj saying y2 jackass or all the trash talking, no real build up but coming up sunday just with the match and thats all. great match up but no build up
i liked the elbow drop through the table by shane
did anyone just hear michael cole. hope to fill up the stadium with 100,000 thousand people
Yes Josh, a very interesting and telling comment.
You are right, Josh, not much of a story.
vince figured that Rudy Charles be the Ref in the divas match lol lucky guy
Non Title match, gee I wonder what the finish of this one is.
vince don’t you think they overdue the diva on commentary while the other has a match they do this with the intercontinental division to owens is always doing that
Yeah, seems like they have gotten into a habit of doing that. Good point/perception.
becky lynch in a lingerie match, thats how you book &
now thats a wrestlemania hahaa
Bro–I’d book that in a NEW YORK MINUTE!!!
“It’s a different time.” -Triple H (insert rolling eyes emoji here)
soooo much negativity.. watch the show then comment… dont say its gonna be bad if you dont know… i mean wow
I think everyone has enjoyed the first 45. I have at least. Just small details that they could easily acknowledge.
shows gonna be good im enjoying i’ve just always had a pet peeve with them putting divas and ic’ers on commentary
Sigh..i’d rather see a 2 minute squash match than them cutting to commercials during a match..i’m sick of it..week after week after week..where’s my valium?? lol
the only thing that WWE Can do is to have a full match then cut to commercial breaks. To me them being wwe not giving a full match to us every week is cheating the home viewer out of watching RAW in the long run.
Charlotte could not sell that BECK PLEX WITH THAT BUMP! SO PHONY!
if you dont like what ur seeing change the channel i guess.. thats what i do atleast… im not gonna complain abd keep watching… imo
Based on this divas match we’ve seen for the 100th time, I just gotta ask when the Beautiful People will debut on Monday Night Raw?
gotta love ric
vince backstage segment wow haha
GREAT Shane promo. Strong.
DAMN Vince they are adding on stronger with back stage interviews and Shane and mr mcmahon,
Would you let turn Charlotte against her dad one day?
Sure, Boris–when time is right–why not?
I 100% agree. I think you could put so much heat on her this way. Imagine when she attacks her old man…
Ric Flair is more of a wrestling God and less of a man lmao
i love’d that segment shane straight shooting on vince is funny
shane looks good , strong, im happy hes back , it gives a positive hope for us fans
Yes agreed, a nice strong statement by Shane there
whats up boys. j-dubs here!!
I have a feeling HBK is gonna be on tonight. Just a gut.
vince i wont bring up how great seth rollins is , in this conversation, i dont need u to get sick again
being Brooklyn, id figure Rock may drop in too…
if i was any of these wrestlers id be fighting to wrestle tonight . the crowd is the best here in new york
What better way to get Flair over as a heel manager than with that Sickers commercial .. smh
Damn I hope Shane does end up in control of Raw & has some real creative power because WWE has been like a limp noodle since they dropped the attitude era.
Mr. Perfect was the absolute best. Cracked me up every time I worked with him.
Can’t believe he would have been 58 today!!
That match was EXACTLY how long it should have been
Vince do you think that this is a nice build up for the battle royal on sunday with the wrestlers in the ring
Ah, don’t know, Josh. I personally don’t care about that match.
Good point vince
This is random and late, but if Charlotte was gonna win anyway, why not add some stakes to the match and make it a Title match? And, if it’s non title, wouldn’t you wanna give Becky a W there?
Getting Becky over would have been great–especially if she’s not going over on Sunday.MO.
she should be going over. i hope
C’mon now, you’re asking an awful lot for 25 writers to come up with
Well we ALMOST made it through the entire first hour without a HHH/Steph appearance
Vince. has the age of the “Storyline” really dead in todays WWE
I think the answer to that is obvious
It’s sad but true, Big J
Lord I hope that steph and HHH dont cut a lame promo shortly
Here we go..as Ivory once said..a 9 hour promo. lol
And now for a 2 hour Triple H promo to close out Raw
GOOD NIGHT EVERYBODY LOL TURN OUT THE LIGHTS THE PARTYS OVER lol
crowd aint taking to roman at all, he needs a turn on sunday
The sad part is Triple H truly believes every word he’s saying here #shoot
Triple H’s character at 46 if my favorite Triple H character ever. His promos are so much better now than they ever were. Still a great worker.
I am buzzing hoping that Austin will somehow help Shane win against Taker, one last screw you to Vince McMahon, how would you Vince Russo book Austin for WM32? I think since he has not appeared on any TV in the buildup they are saving something special, would you have used Austin in the build up in anyway?
You have to be careful. You don’t want Austin over-shadowing your entire roster. He will do that because he is STILL that good.
Who needs a heel turn more, Cena or Reigns? Toss up. Of course the one difference is that Cena’s should have literally been 10 years ago.
theres hope for roman still with a heel run, otherwise he will miss his wave , i think
Don’t think Cena needs one at all. To be honest, I think seeing someone else at the top has made a lot of wrestling fans appreciate Cena more than ever. Just MO.
Yeah, I mean it goes without saying that Reigns needs to turn asap .. But I also think that a properly written Cena turn could still be major money, but of course that will almost certainly not happen at this point.
why boo….I still don’t get it.
Man, the fans are just brutal on Reigns.
it wasn’t long ago that it was constant booing for trips and steph……now theyd prefer trips over reigns. I dunno, heel turn or not. I just don’t get why they don’t like him.
I’m with you Vince, I have grown to like Reigns. Probably because the adult WWE Universe dislikes him. Maybe I’m still just a kid at heart!
And they will continue to be brutal to him. Which is why he needs to turn HEEL!!!He’s my fav wrestler in the company and I’m dying for him to give folks as actual reason to boo him.
god no crowd response earlier when they came out hhh and stephanie, then when regins gets over on Hunter, boo city. if wwe wants regins to be the face of the company, hes got to do something else on sunday to be the champion
Is it bad that I don’t care who has that title at the end of Wrestlemania? I’m more interested in the outcome of Shane/Taker.
Nothing against HHH or Reigns but I’m not invested in that match, whoever wins its still gonna drag on….. same thing over and over
I saw Reigns live. He is phenomenal! Can’t understand how any live crowd can’t appreciate that…
house shows, from what I hear (and saw at a couple), are a completely different story
i know Russo hates when i say this, but………….. Seth Rollins is much needed right now, best young talent in the wwe right now
I agree with Vince. I don’t miss Rollins at all.
by far. more believable. and he calls people johnny idiot face
BTW people, if you have not yet gone to Vince’s YouTube channel and checked out the @SuperUglyShow’s podcast, you are def missing out. #cheapplug #sorrynotsorry
lol doug. thank you, (another plug) i just bought the “vince russo guy )tshirt yesturday on this website
As you mentioned Vince, Reigns needs to be the long wolf heel after WM if he’s champion.
Maybe wwe could do with Reigns what they did with Kevin Nash aka Diesel in the middle 90es. The “babyface” gimmick with the glove thing. A guy who just like HIS fans and gives a crap about the rest.
New Day= most over in company
big e cracks me up funny
They’re in more trouble than I thought if that’s the case.
Ok Vince… A 24 Hour Loop of New Day Promo’s or listening to Andre Corbeil cut E-Fed promo’s and Sing?
Is killing myself an option?
I think if the New Day come out on flying unicorns at WM32, well, the unicorns need to fly right out of the stadium and the League of Nations win via forfeit!
And then the Rock comes out and takes out the League of Nations….
how in the world did Shamus from character standpoint go from being the champ going over reigns, to losing it, to not caring about getting the championship back, most concerned now with his group that really hasn’t fought for anything important.
New Day is the 2016 version of Doink the Clown .. It wasn’t a good thing then, and it’s not a good thing now.
thats not nice
hahaa sorry guys, just don’t make me eat dog food!
I need a huge flashing applause sign to put over your post!!!
Watch it, Doug–you’ll get the SuperUglyGuys HOT!!!
Vince, I would rather head butt a unicorn than watch a New Day match/promo!
what is andre corbeil e-fed promo can i look this up???
My Favourite build was to WM15, that build started way back after Judgement Day, to Survivor Series, Rock Bottom, Rumble, where Austin was having to overcome the impossible each time just to get to WM15 and win the title, it seems now everything is just a quick fix for a quick payoff, what’s your thought Vince?
I agree Stephen. It seems like we just put so much more thought into it back then.
The HBK/Austin/Tyson swerve(s), build, and payoff is untouchable. That match may not look like a classic, but it is….Austin’s neck and HBK’s back. That match still gives me butterflies!
vince did u hear La Cucaracha on the trombone? thats the little roach that couldnt walk anymore
Geez, how many times are we going to see this match? Enough already.
Just got back from eating dinner. Did i miss anything
figured that Boris. got my hopes up for nothing lol
Did anyone catch JBL saying the league of Nations compared to the horsemen, the 4 horsemen are Elite Main event guys , league of nations, Mid Card cars that used to be main event guys
meant to say guys not cars. my bad
What the hell did King Kong Bundy that he still is not in the hall of fame???
boris its like him and the honky tonk man are not in the hall of fame and they gave it there blood and sweat and tears for the wwf
So sad and so ridiculous.
wonder if WWE brags about selling out brooklyn like nxt
Well they’ve found already mentioned it like 5 times, so ..
Meanwhile, it went without saying that EVERY arena was sold-out during their attitude-era .. hell, even house shows consistently sold-out
This makes no sense to me anymore, H as champion, Steph by his side… logically wouldn’t they be heavily involved in the Shane Storyline as their status is on the line big time also! Shane vs HHH would have made a lot more sense with HHH not being champion!
That’s a good point
There was always a rule in wrestling that you don’r “cross” storylines. Ed and I thought that was ridiculous and that’s why we always did. Everybody has more then one thing going on in their lives at a time.
Exactly, they have just totally ignored Shane O’, whereas if it was real it would be the direct opposite! I get HHH is involved in the Reigns storyline, but honestly why should he even be there in the first place!
Say what you want about the show . They’re putting multiple segments into the main matches which is a good thing. I just wish they didn’t wait till the freaking go-home show to do it!
good point blake. but its always they use that go home show to make raw a watchable show
That;s it in a nutshell, Blake. Why not this kind of effort EVERY week? The fans deserve that.
I am waiting for this… This is how ridiculous it has become…
Michael Cole: Reigns is fighting hard but HHH keep putting him down, But here comes Robocop, it’s Robocop is he going to help REIGNS…
Vince, is Teen Mom on?
Thanks for the reminder gotta set my DVR for Teen Mom
think im going to tune in for teen mom tonight too
It only makes sense to watch Teen Mom now, maybe some Gotham (right Jeff Lane)? WWE blew their wad in the first segment…
Ok people..thoughts on all the camera zooming / shaking??..it drives me crazy.
Ive met Ryback and he was nice to me and my sister at a meet and greet in nov.
Once again, that match was exactly how long it should have been, thank god
agree . short and sweet, ryback blows btw
Gilberg was a better Goldberg than Ryback
And the point of that Ryback in ring was ….?
Where is Lazy Lane?
i figured that the ZZZZZ were catching up with ya jeff lol
I’m sleeping as I type this. I’ve got this lazy thing down.
I love the Batman wallpaper…
That’s all Vince!
jeff lane knows how to put a great website together
so jeff do we call you rip van winkle lane lol
He came out to yell “Feed Me More” in a midgets face only to walk away? Okay…
Ok Vince I think I’ve finally got the one thing you’ll choose Andre Corbeil over. You’re locked in a room with Ryback as he does the Feed Me More Chant continuously or.. Andre singing and cutting E-Fed Promos
lmao i gotta hear this promo
that brock shirt , sick
probably the money maker best all time shirt sold ever
josh dont get crazy on us… stone colds was numbr 1
Yup i had a stone cold shirt in 1998 good point
Yeah, I was gonna say, have you lost your mind, Big J.?
your right guys. my bad
Can’t wait to hear Heyman pronounce Lesner’s name the way he does #shootmenow
Could you imagine Paul Heyman as Roman Reign’s advocate?
Guess not! LOL
They could do a lot more creatively.
They could have Shane show up with his wife and kids to the arena to give them a look at what they will inherit and to say hello to the WWE fans. Stephanie interrupts and runs them all down eventually slapping Shane’s wife and humiliating her. Shane sends his family home in a limo and is angry for the rest of the show. He closes the show by saying regardless of what happens at Mania he will reveal the contents of the lockbox and Stephanie will have a night she wont forget on Raw and he will still beat the Undertaker and take control of Raw. It will be his legacy.
Why not have a McMahon family dinner? All 4 McMahons including Linda at a dinnertable in the McMahon family mansion, all family members air their dirty laundry through gritted teeth. The camera pans around the dining table as they try and tolerate each other with Vince ultimately abandoning all of them and walking out. Stephanie is left without her Daddy, Shane is on his own anyway, Linda is heartbroken. The match on Sunday will change this family forever, they can never be the same ever again.
They call Dean Ambrose the Lunatic Fringe and the Ambrose Asylum. Why not have Dean in an actual asylum? Do vignettes of him speaking to the various “characters” in the asylum. The payoff is he ends up being restrained inside it sending a final warning to Brock Lesnar.
You should be writing for the WWE.
That is some good stuff right there, Graeme
Thankyou Vince and Doug. I just think there is so much more they could do outside of the arenas to tell their stories.
Funny use with DR LESNAR LOL
Brock is def a mark for Heyman’s promo this week ha #facialexpressions
wonder if you find them at Jimmy Johns eating a sandwich after raw lol
With Heyman cutting the same promo he always does on the cashier when they mess up their order! Ha
yup. i can imagine, HEY MY CLIENT sAID LIGHT MAYO AND YOU GIVE A TON OF FREAKIN MAYO, MR CASHIER GUY, WELCOME TO SUPLEX CITY LOL
Guess Ambrose has to get to the airport early for Dallas to get all those items through baggage claim #worstheatever
Lol, bro. I think the show has been okay to good, but THAT’S what they do on the go home after all that good work with Ambrose/Lesnar? Let’s hope there’s more.
That’s the problem man, you just know there probably won’t be
liking this discussion with all u members of the brand would love some follow from all of you…
I will follow anyone in here who follows me…
BAD AND BLONDE! AND TOTAL DIVAS! HMMM wonder how long that will last bad and blonde
Is Trips making some announcement tonight regarding his match with Reigns at WM32?
im surprise vince that Rudy charles is not the ref in this divas match
Looks like my bedroom at a middle good Friday night…
woah emmas theme is sick.. haha lanas heels acting up
i will bet the farm that VInnie RU vince russo is watching TEEN mom right not lol
wow emmas body is nicer than nikkis
If Wrestlemania was sold-out, or even pretty close to being sold-out, you know they would have already mentioned it at least 15 times. Interesting.
earlier in the night doug michael cole said in a promo about wrestlemania that we hope to sell out 100,000 at wrestlemania
Right .. “Hope”. Sad.
sami zayn looks like a local alcoholic taxi driver. ridiculous
I lough so hard!
This is no go home show, this is a go home and never come back show!
Agreed! This Raw has been disappointing…
Yeah, man, they’ve kind of lost me.
The WWE does know that a “Go Home” show doesn’t mean that they book it in a way that makes the audience want to go home, right?
See ya Vince, I’m out! Look forward to seeing you in the draft room Wednesday night! Kershaw or Goldschmidt at #1? Hmmm…..
I have #1 in my TNA League. I’m taking Kershaw.
Deepest apologies–I don’t care one iota about this match.
Wow, Did Michael Cole really just say “rabid crowd”? Truly unreal.
Reminder to tune into WrestlingInc podcast after RAW with ShONNit Ross Sapp, Raj, and Vince.
Once again, the live audience has no choice but to entertain themselves. WWE should be ashamed of themselves.
The only good in the entire show was a guy who had nothing to do with wrestling for 15 years… Maybe we need MUCH MORE ppl. from outside the bubble to Make Wrestling Great Again…
Havent turned on RAW at all, reading Nothin to Lose: The Making of KISS 72-75. Did I miss anything good brand?
nope. only thing good shane and undertaker and backstage vince and shane and hhh and regins
Please end this.
2 commercial breaks and all to kill time before hhh comes out at the end of tonights raw, and this 6 man is the main event match vince
Hey Brand lets Start our own Chat before raw ends shortly. WE WANT RUSSO! CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP, WE WANT RUSSO! CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP
damn it meant to say Chant my bad. raw has put me to sleep lol
I dont know how you guys can even watch it anymore…*laughs* Ive given up. Hulu runs a 90 minute condensed version and even my 5 year old has trouble watching it. I give you all credit as wrestling fans for sticking with the product.
That was excruciating
2 commercials and its killing time for hhh and steph to come on, and its the main event match
Oh good, I was hoping The Authority’s message wasn’t over yet
looks like hhh and steph is going to end raw. and i will end my discuss , Night BRAND , night everyone, NIGHT LAZY jeff lane and NIGHT VINNIE RU VINCE
anyone in the brand would like to follow me the heart and soul of the brand i am at @jjhinkmanpart5
no worries boris
I meant night. Sorry damn German autocorrect
Mania’s looking worse than most Sunday Night Heat’s. Horrendous Go Home Show.
Word for word agreed. Beyond pathetic.
This segment should be the strongest of the year. Last segment before Mania. Go home.
It won’t be.
@StupidMarks on Twitter, boys, anyone here definitely gets followed back.
What a clusterf*ck of nonsense
Wheres the hook for us to tune in to wrestlemania
This is f%cking embarrassing.
yup ryan. piss poor bro
I’m honestly speechless. Time to tune into WrestlingInc for Vince’s Raw review. Goodnight people.
