The Wrestling 9 Deuce – February 26 & 27, 2018 The Golden Shovel Returns

We got to see Cena wielding the golden shovel, Ronda’s inability to act or toss a man twice her size through a table well, but he sold it like a son of a bitch, and much more!!  Keri is back judging Anonyruss and Harper Lee on their responses to her questions.  Over on our podcast, Are You Not Kentertained we had our 100th episode.  Enough said!!!    Please enjoy.


  1.  Well, Roman Reigns is our #1 contender for the Universal title and cut a promo on Brock Monday night on RAW. What did you think of this promo?

Anonyruss:  This was Roman’s best promo.  That doesn’t say too much since the majority of his promos are garbage.  I’m not a Roman hater, but talking is not his strong suit. Still, This was above average for any promo and for that I have to give him props.  Brock not showing up may have been the best thing that could have happened to Roman. Now was this WWE’s doing? Or is Brock really such a douche that he can’t work all the way through his contract?  I guess we will have to tune in to find out.

Harper Lee:  Man, can that man cut a passionate promo, or what?  And what is that mean ole Brock Lesnar doing with Dana White?  You, sir, are under contract with WWE. That means you stay with them until it runs out.  I am so mad at Brock, I could scream at him. He doesn’t scare me. Daddy and his brother got plenty of guns, so bring it Beast!

Keri’s Verdict:  Not a bad showing from Roman this week. Do I still think he has the charisma of a carrot? Yes, I do. But at least he showed promise so that is a step in the right direction. Also, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Brock Lesnar is one of the main things wrong with the WWE right now. Let’s hope by early April we are done with that nonsense. Now to award this question’s point. I like that Harper is showing no fear this week so she gets the point.


  1.  So much to talk about in the RAW women’s division. Asuka has apparently chosen to face Alexa at Mania and Nia is having none of it, Mickie and Alexa now have an alliance, and it looks like it may be the end of the super best friends, Sasha and Bayley. Discuss all of these recent developments.

Anonyruss:  Asuka still hasn’t chosen who she is going to face and I think that plays big time into Nia / Bliss / Mickie and their “paths” to Mania.  I think Asuka is still going to face Charlotte. This will leave Nia to face Bliss. Sasha and Bayley should have happened about 5 or 6 months ago.  Still, if this finally turns Sasha back to a heel and doing the things that made us all love her in the first place, then let’s get this thing over with!    

Harper Lee:  I’m so sad to see Bayley and Sasha not be besties anymore.  What is this world coming to??? I don’t trust that Mickie James.  Why are you siding with Alexa after recently feuding with her? I don’t get it.  Why is Nia even in the conversation if she lost cleanly to Asuka? This is all absurdity personified.

Keri’s Verdict:  I have to say kudos to RAW creative for coming up with the current storyline for the women’s division. I’m actually intrigued and looking forward to what happens next. Good job.  Now to award the point for this question. I don’t know what has gotten into Harper this week but I’m digging her sassiness so one point to Harper.


  1.  It looks like the Miz is potentially facing Finn Balor and Seth Rollins at Mania for the IC title. Is this a good decision? Also, where does this leave Elias and Braun?

Anonyruss:  Is this a good decision?  Hell yea it is! The Miz, Finn, and Seth in a triple threat match for the IC title is money in the bank!  So I’m 100% behind this. So where does that leave Elias and Braun? Well if you are to believe the internet (and who doesn’t?)  The IC title will be a fatal 5 way. You know WWE has had a hard-on lately for multi man matches. I can’t think of the last PPV that didn’t at least have a triple threat match or more men in one match.  

Harper Lee:  It leaves Elias in that match as well and possibly Braun.  I still think Braun is main eventing this year’s Wrestlemania.  Let Roman kick out of an F5 only for Braun to capitalize and win the belt.  The IC belt is below Braun at the moment despite him never holding a belt. Look at that man and tell me that he is in the mid-card with that cute bushy beard of his.  He can put his hands on me anytime, that’s his saying, right. He wants to put his hands on Harper Lee. I’m pretty sure that’s correct.

Keri’s Verdict:  If the WWE was smart, they would do two things here. First, they would keep this Elias and Braun feud going into Mania. Those two guys work great together. Second, let’s leave Balor, Miz, and Rollins alone. That match has the match of the night potential and I’d say this about a card that potentially has Styles vs Nakamura. Alright, it’s award a point time. I’m going to award Anonyruss a point here. I agree there are too many multi-man matches right now. It really screams lazy writing.


  1.  John Cena came out on RAW said he failed at EC, that he would not face the Undertaker at Mania, and that he would head to Smackdown in search of his road to Wrestlemania. Then on Smackdown, he immediately asked for a title shot, beat AJ, and got added to the fatal five-way (now six-pack challenge) at Fastlane. Discuss all of this and also what you would like to see Cena do at Mania.

Anonyruss:  Wow this question is loaded, like Cena is with shit.  If you didn’t get that I am saying that Cena is full of shit.  Has no path to Mania. Listen I love a good make believe story, but Cena having no way to get to WrestleMania is going too far beyond believability.  I was pissed that he got a clean win over AJ. I mean the match was good, but the better story would have been him losing to AJ and then having Shinsuke come out and want to have a match with Cena at Fastlane so he can prove himself to everyone and to entice Cena to accept if he beats Shinsuke then he will be added to his match with AJ at Mania.  That is gold! GOLD I TELLS YA! Sorry. Anyway, I’d still have Cena lose at Fastlane and then he would be at rock bottom and that is when the Undertaker comes out. He then says something like “Now that you have hit rock bottom, I’m coming to bury you so you may Rest In Peace. Boom Taker and Cena at Mania.

Harper Lee:  I think that John Cena needs to see a good psychiatrist, like Dr. Shelby.  Does anybody remember that stuff with Daniel Bryan and Kane. I laughed and I laughed, and I may have peed a little bit, but so worth it catching up on so many things that I missed over the years.  Seriously though, I’m a member of Cenation through and through usually, but don’t go thinking you can fight the Dead Man. Also, not cool beating my man AJ Styles. I was not happy that night. I ate a whole pan of brownies in rage mode after that match.  Rage mode is similar to Brie mode except I actually accomplished something and was good at it.

Keri’s Verdict:  This whole Cena doesn’t have a path for Mania is BS. No one believes it Creative. The man is John Cena. Creative almost certainly has something for him. And as long as he doesn’t mess with my Styles vs Nakamura match, he can do whatever and bury whomever  he wants. Now to award a point. Harper mentioned brownies and I love brownies. Should creative decide to mess with Styles vs Nakamura I will need a whole pan of those myself.


  1.  Let’s talk the Smackdown Tag Division, shall we? We had a good segment with the Uso and New Day followed by some foreshadowing with the Bludgeon Brothers. What are your thoughts on this? Where do you see this going?

Anonyruss:  The Uso’s and New Day were good this week.  I like a fired up Big E. That is the best Big E.  Then I loved how the Bludgeon Brothers came out. I am really starting to dig there music.  This has to be leading to a triple threat tag team match right? It would just be one more multi-man match type that gives WWE it’s boner.  I am beginning to think Mania will just be a clusterfuck of Multi-Men matches with the exception of like two matches. I can’t believe how stacked the WWE is right now!  

Harper Lee:  I’ll tell you, the only thing scarier than Braun’s hands are those hammers that the Bludgeon Brothers have.  Good lawdy, Uso’s and Newday, ain’t no penitentiary or pancake that is going to save you from some legit southern boys.  Can you imagine how big’s Braun’s hands are? How big his fingers are? Oh my……..I need to take a bath.

Keri’s Verdict:  Why is it no matter how many times I see the Usos and New Day cut a promo it never gets old? They are that damn good right now. With that said I also like what they are doing with the Bludgeon Brothers right now. It’s almost something out of one of those SOON memes. Ok points time. So, I’m going to award Anonyruss the point here because again his answer is on point and sending Harper for a cold shower.


Bonus Time: Each week Anonyruss and Harper Lee will choose a topic that hasn’t been discussed in this week’s blog.  In the event of a tie after 5 questions, Keri will use these extra thoughts to help her declare a winner.:

Anonyruss:  Harper Lee sounds like she has lost her southern charm and turned into a douchey bitch.  (Kent: Yeah #MeToo!!!)  I jest, I love her. Still, she is right. I have nothing to contribute to this section.  JASON JORDAN FOREVER! COME BACK TO US SOON!

Harper Lee:  Kevin Owen’s made fun of Baron Corbin’s hairline on Smackdown.  I laughed. That’s better than what Anonyruss is going to bring to the table.  Ballin!!!

Keri’s Final Verdict:  Congrats to Harper for this week’s win. I’m digging the sassiness this week girl. Keep it up.


Final Thoughts:  

Anonyruss:  Can we all agree that finally seeing Fashion Files on Smackdown instead of on facebook was the right call?  Sure, it was just a long commercial for some stupid show on the USA Network, but it was better than a lot of Smackdown that night.  

Harper Lee:  I get car sick easily so this Road to Wrestlemania has me very nauseous.  I wanna see me some more Ronda Rousey. Also, Keri, can you tell Russ and Kent to stop calling her Ronda Arouse-me?  That’s such a lewd thing to say.

Keri:  Let me just say that I may be in over my head on this whole finishing up school thing. I’m only 6 weeks in and I feel like I do at week 12. This is going to be a long semester. But at least graduation day is set so it will all be worth it come May 12th. If I make it to May 12th, that is. And, Harper it bugs me too but I’ve learned to pick my battles with those two so I’m letting it slide for now.
