‘I Have Risen’ – text from WWE’s text message service

The Undertaker will return on tonight’s ‘Old School’ Raw.

WWE formally invites Glenn Beck to appear on Raw Monday

Following his criticism over the portrayal of WWE Superstars Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter, WWE has extended a formal invitation to talk show host and political commentator Glenn Beck to appear on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.

WWE’s invitation stems from Beck’s recent segment in which he discussed the ongoing rivalry between World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio, No. 1 contender Swagger and his self-styled mentor Colter. In the segment, Beck specifically directed his comments toward the character of Swagger, recently reinvented as a xenophobic “Real American” who delivers anti-immigration “State of the Union” addresses as the antagonist to the Mexican hero Del Rio. Beck inferred that Swagger’s persona, along with that of Colter as his mentor, would offend WWE’s “conservative” fan base. Beck also referenced WWE as “stupid wrestling people” in the segment, which aired Thursday on The BlazeTV.

WWE is in the entertainment business, creating characters and stories that revolve around our Superstars as well as culturally significant current events. Given Mr. Beck’s comments, WWE is formally extending an invitation to him to address our 14 million weekly viewers and global fan base — as well as the live audience of the WWE Universe — on WWE programming this Monday night. We look forward to Mr. Beck’s reply and the opportunity to have him on Raw.

WWE & USA release big rating number for post Royal Rumble Raw

WWE and the USA network released the following to the press regarding. Last nights Raw. It was the best rated Raw since Raw 1000 as well as the second best of the three hour Raw era. The post Rumble show always does well, so this is not overly surprising, even if the numbers were a little higher than expected.

Breaking: Mr McMahon to issue State of WWE address Monday on Raw

The WWE sent out the following tweet today:

@WWE: BREAKING: WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon to deliver #StateofWWE Address on Monday’s #Raw. Details: http://t.co/OR1vYaEG

With recent rumors stating Vince is very upset with the current state of Raw, could he shake things up with some changes? Or is he simply going to brag about the amount of programming they now produce each week?

With less than a month until the elections, don’t expect anything shocking. He won’t do anything to hurt Linda’s election chances.

The other side of this is that it gives CM Punk someone to interrupt this week, which may be all this is.

The latest on Jerry Lawler – including video

The story about Jerry Lawler’s heart attack and collapse last night on Raw has been covered in many major news sources this morning, and would probably be a lot more if it wasn’t the 11th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.

Smith Hart, Bret Hart’s brother, said last night that Lawler was ‘clinically dead’ for 20 minutes before being revived by defibrilator. Smith heard this second-hand, from an independent wrestler named Jeremy Prophet, who was backstage at Raw last night.

WWE.com has the following statement on its website currently:

Jerry “The King” Lawler suffered a heart attack while commentating during last night’s broadcast of Monday Night Raw in Montreal.  We are hopeful Jerry makes a full recovery and returns to WWE in the near future. Our thoughts are with Jerry and his family.

Here is video of Lawler being carried out. They take him into the crowd to avoid him being seen by the cameras as he was brought to the back for treatment.

Lawler’s girlfriend posted the following on her Facebook page:

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers. It has been confirmed that Jerry did have a heart attack…he is in stable condition and breathing on his own & heart is stable. I’m getting on the first flight out of here to be with him & will keep everyone posted. He is a strong man and we will get him back at his best as soon as I can get him home! I love you so so much baby!

Lawler had wrestled earlier in the night in a tag match with Randy Orton against the team of Dolph Ziggler and CM Punk. Orton pinned Ziggler to win the match. If it turns out that this is Lawler’s last match, not bad company to have it with.

Jerry Lawler collapses during Raw- not a storyline

WWE Hall of Famer, legend, and announcer Jerry Lawler collapsed during a match between The Prime Time Players and Kane and Daniel Bryan on the broadcast of Raw tonight from Montreal.

He was seen visibly slumped over during the match, and the competitors near him looked concerned. Michael Cole has given two updates, one that he was getting CPR and that this was ‘not part of tonight’s entertainment’ and the other that Lawler was taken to a medical center and was now breathing on his own.

Cole said that out of respect to Lawler, he would not be doing any further commentary tonight.

Cole’s third update went into much more detail, and said Lawler is much more responsive now, and awaiting a CAT scan.

More as it happens.

Jericho’s farewells from this stint in WWE

Chris Jericho tweeted the following:

 

Opening segment for post-PPV Raw

WWE released a post-Summerslam video of Paul Heyman telling WWE’s website that Brock Lesnar will kick off Monday’s three-hour Raw “answering questions” following his PPV main event victory over Triple H. Monday’s Raw is Lesnar’s last advertised TV appearance for the time being.

HBK appearing on Raw tonight?

Playing up the story of Triple H teasing retirement at the end of the Summerslam PPV, Shawn Michaels tweeted that he may appear “via satellite” on Monday’s Raw addressing Hunter following his loss to Brock Lesnar.

“Just talked to Hunter…lets just say, I completely understand whats going through his head. We’ll just have to wait and see. I have to admit…I’m not entirely sure I’m comfortable just letting this go,” Michaels tweeted Sunday night. “Time for me to go, I gotta make a few calls and see if i can get a Satellite Truck out here by tomorrow night!”

What Happened After WWE RAW Went Off The Air Last Night

Credit: Chris Blanton & ProWrestling.net

Shawn Michaels was hauled out on a stretcher after RAW went off the air. After he left, Big Show came out and talked about being from Miami and how Miami had winners. He ran down Dallas before John Cena ran down and entered the ring. They fought back and forth until Cena hit a 5 Knuckle Shuffle and then an Attitude Adjustment.

Big Show left and Cena talked about how Dallas was a winning town by proof of all the NBA and NHL banners hanging in the arena. He thanked us for coming and then left.

Justin Roberts thanked us ad said Raw would be back on February 25. There was no dark match as advertised.

Overall, a pretty good show. There was a lot of dead time and it seemed like they were just trying to pass time.

Image: New #Raw Logo to debut tonight during #Raw1000

In tonight’s 100th (really 999th due to the Olympics) Raw, the WWE will debut the below logo as the ‘logo for the next 1000 episodes’.

Ziggler unsure of Raw 1,000 role

Promoting Monday’s Raw when WWE recognizes 1,000 Raw episodes, WWE wrestler Dolph Ziggler told A.M. New York that he’s unsure what his role will be on the show, but he plans to make a lasting impression. “I don’t exactly know what my role will be,” Ziggler said. “When that show ends, people will say, ‘I came to see those guys (top stars & returning Legends), but I remember what Dolph Ziggler did. He went out there and did what he said he would do: He found a way to steal the show, even on a star-studded card like that.”

DDP, Evan Bourne & Randy Orton At 1,000th RAW?

Evan Bourne announced via Twitter that he won’t be on the 1,000th RAW tomorrow night, which is from his hometown in St. Louis. Bourne posted the following: Sorry friends! I won’t be in STL for the epic #raw1000 but when I DO work my way back on Raw, it will also be epic!

Randy Orton will not be at the 1,000th RAW from his hometown of St. Lois due to his current Wellness Policy suspension. He’ll be able to return at the end of the month.

– Diamond Dallas Page is being promoted as a guest on the St. Louis’ FOX affiliate morning show tomorrow. That means he’s in St. Louis for RAW so expect him to appear.

1,000TH RAW UPDATES: MAJOR NAMES & *SPOILERS*

Below are some confirmed and rumored names + segments for tonight’s 1,000th episode of RAW. This is a recap of all the 1,000th RAW news we’ve posted over the past week. This is what we know so far and we’ll be updating this post leading into the show tonight:

* The show begins at 8EST and will be three-hours weekly (8-11EST) starting next week.

* WWE Title Match: CM Punk vs. John Cena.

* Intercontinental Title Match: Christian vs. ???

* DX Reunion: This will open the show at 8EST.

* Sean Waltman (X-Pac) appeared on the Cowhead show on Friday and hinted that he will be at RAW on Monday night. Waltman said, “I can’t foresee a DX reunion without X-Pac.” WWE has been contacting numerous former talents this week so it’s possible he’ll be there. He had been tweeting in recent weeks that WWE had not contacted him. All signs are now pointing to a “full” DX reunion with Triple H, Shawn Michaels, The Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and X-Pac all appearing. That is not confirmed just yet but it is looking more and more likely. Chyna will not be appearing for obvious reasons.

* During a recent interview with The Miami Herald, Jerry Lawler was speaking abut the origin of the “puppies” line he had used for years. While doing so, he may have announced another surprise return for Monday’s 1,000th RAW“I actually got to give credit to a guy who I think will be returning on the 1,000th episode. It was a member of DX, Road Dogg (Jesse) James. I believe he was talking to Sable at the time. DX was in the ring, and Sable was in the ring, and somehow I believe Road Dogg said, ‘Hey, show us your puppies.’ It kind of floated by. No big deal at that point and time, but then I started using the word a couple of weeks later, and it just stuck.”

* Brock Lesnar returns and will confirm his match with Triple H at SummerSlam. Paul Heyman will be there with Lesnar.

* The Rock returns to WWE to address his quest for the WWE Title. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is rumored to be contemplating competing in a match or two before WrestleMania XXIX on April 7, 2013 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. An announcement could come as soon as Monday.

* There have been rumors for months that WWE was going to be doing a big summer angle that would get people talking. There is a lot of speculation that the angle will be kicked off Monday night, likely at the end of the show. There aren’t many details going around at this time, as those within the company have been keeping tight lipped.

* Daniel Bryan and AJ will have a wedding.

* The announcement of a new permanent RAW General Manager.

* WWE Legends Bret Hart, Mick Foley and Roddy Piper are all confirmed to return.

* Roddy Piper posted the following, discussing whether or not he will appear at the 1,000th RAW“If I go to Raw’s 1000th episode I’m not doing lame work. Let me roll Vince. I’ll show them why Raw’s the longest running show!” As noted above, Piper is confirmed for next week’s show.

* Local Advertisements in St. Louis are promoting Bret Hart to appear at Monday’s 1,000th RAW. Hart was advertised a few weeks ago, but then there was no follow up. The new local ads that started to run this week pushed Hart as appearing. As noted above, Hart is confirmed for next week’s show.

* Vince and Stephanie McMahon will appear on the show. Shane McMahon is said to be a long shot and Linda McMahon probably won’t happen because of her ongoing Senate campaign trying to distance her from the WWE product. There will also be the usual “2nd tier” legends appearing as well.

* WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross discussed Monday’s RAW 1,000 show on the Sports Illustrated Hot Clicks Podcast, and what he would like to contribute to the show: “It’s kind of like a baseball player going to the All Star game in Kansas City. I’m just kind of waiting to see what the manager puts on the lineup card. I know I’m on the roster, I know I’m figured to do something, I’m just waiting to see where my name is penciled in. With an old guy like me who’s been around the horn — been weathered — there’s nothing that can be assigned that I probably haven’t already done. In a perfect world I’d love to call a match, but that’s not my call. But I’m ready to play, whatever they want me to do, I’m ready to roll.”

* As most of you know by now, WWE‘s flagship program RAW will celebrate its 1000th episode this coming Monday. During her near seven-year run, Trish Stratus participated in 160 matches-the most of any female-and created many memorable moments along the way. The legendary grappler is recalling the memories on her official website, TrishStratus.com, as she ranks her top five moments and top five matches. The quintessential Diva also offers an inside look with comments on each one of these Stratusfy-ing appearances. She ranks her match against Lita on the Dec. 6, 2004 episode of RAW, the first time in history that the Divas were solely featured in the show’s main event, as her top match. She says of the bout, “What an amazing feeling for Lita and I to be given the trust and confidence to close out our flagship show in the main event of Monday Night Raw. Plus, a true testament to the hard work of the women’s division as a whole.”

* We can confirm that both Lita and Trish Stratus have been contacted to appear at the 1,000th WWE RAW event.

* Both Stephanie McMahon and Jim Ross will be in St. Louis, Missouri next Monday, the site of that day’s unprecedented 1000th RAW episode. The WWE Hall of Famer appeared Wednesday on KREF Sports Talk 1400 The Ref and confirmed he would be on the show. He added he has no idea what his role will be. McMahon, who participated in a Twitter chat Tuesday and hinted but did not confirm an appearance on Raw, will be in the area that day for a ‘be a STAR’ anti-bullying.at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater St. Louis’ Herbert Hoover location (2901 N. Grand Ave.). She will be joined World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, The Miz, Eve and American Idol finalist James Durbin.

* We can now exclusively confirm that The Undertaker will be appearing on Monday 1,000th RAW event. This will be the Phenom’s first appearance since WrestleMania. His role on the show will be unclear, but he will be live at the show in St. Louis.

* WWE‘s creative committee is rumored to be leaning towards CM Punk retaining the WWE Championship next Monday on RAW when John Cena is supposed to cash in his Money in the Bank contract. According to sources, there is a lot of talk within the organization that Cena will be the first person to not win a title directly after cashing in the briefcase. The feeling is that Cena is the one guy that can handle losing the cash in. They also could have The Big Show or The Rock cost Cena the match, which keeps Punk as champion and sidetracks Cena into another feud. There was also talk at RAW this week that there would be a major angle between John Cena and CM Punk next week where somehow Cena would keep his Money in the Bank briefcase. It’s almost guaranteed that this will change numerous times before RAW next week so take this with a grain of salt for now. Triple H recently directed that title reigns should be longer in order to build the importance of the belts. As you know by now, both CM Punk and Sheamus retained their titles at Money in the Bank. We noted that Cena’s Money in the Bank win was made within the last few weeks. At one point, he was going to be given the pay-per-view off.

* WWE has apparently put together a list of names they are expecting to appear on the show, but want to keep several names unadvertised. They have told these names to do “anything and everything” to keep the surprises secret including saying publicly that they will be somewhere else the night of the 1000th RAW.

* Tatanka, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, DDP, Steve Blackman, “Mean” Gene Okerlund, Vader, Doink the Clown, Bob Backlund and Sid Vicious have all also teased appearances, appeared recently, or been contacted by WWE about appearing. Expect a ton of former WWE talents to appear in addition to these names.

* Any talents who are under contract with TNA (Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Kurt Angle, etc.) will obviously NOT be appearing at the event.

* Ric Flair will likely not appear due to the ongoing TNA vs. WWE lawsuit. WWE isn’t going to risk taking any chances with TNA talents.

* The company didn’t promote Charlie Sheen as Social Media Ambassador, suggesting he will not be involved due to the fact that he quit Twitter.

* Goldberg shot down rumors that he will be at RAW next week for the 1,000th episode. When asked over Twitter by a fan, he posted: It’s not true!! RT @mrpops96: @Goldberg there are videos and rumours suggesting that you will be at Raw 1000 is it true?

* Kelly Kelly returns to WWE this week after being granted time off the road in late May. She tweeted Sunday, “On the road again. Can’t wait to see everyone at the #raw1000.” Kelly, who had been on the road on a weekly basis since joining WWE in 2006, was reportedly granted a break to spend time with her family and boyfriend. She last competed on television on the May 21 Raw SuperShow, losing to Beth Phoenix.

* The Ultimate Warrior recently addressed rumors that he would be appearing at the 1,000th RAW. On Twitter, a fan posted the following message to Warrior… hey did you hear everyone thinks you will be at ‪#RAW1000 Warrior responded with the following… I’ve never done what everyone else thinks. Never. Not once. As of last week, there were no plans to feature The Ultimate Warrior on the show. Of course, plans can change but he is not expected to appear as of this writing.

* Former WWE announcer Todd Grisham has stated that he will not be attending the 1,000th episode of RAW. The Coach will also not be at the 1,000th RAW event.

* During a Q&A session at Comic-Con last week, Dave Batista commented on a potential WWE return. Here is what he had to say… I’m not against going back. It’s just definitely not going to be this year.

* Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks have been tweeting all day about wanting to get a match on the 1,000th RAW event. The duo is asking fans to tweet about it. They have re-tweeted many responses from their followers as well.

* Stephanie McMahon, Jim Ross, Bret Hart, Rikishi, Sean “X-Pac” Waltman and Kelly Kelly have all stated that they are either in St. Louis or on their way to St. Louis for the 1,000th RAW.

* The latest on Wade Barrett’s WWE return is that he’ll be back following the SummerSlam pay-per-view. There was a rumor that he’d be appearing at the 1,000th RAW event but that doesn’t look to be happening now. Sources report that WWE creative already has a plan in place for him when he returns.

* Evan Bourne announced via Twitter that he won’t be on the 1,000th RAW tomorrow night, which is from his hometown in St. Louis. Bourne posted the following: Sorry friends! I won’t be in STL for the epic #raw1000 but when I DO work my way back on Raw, it will also be epic!

* Randy Orton will not be at the 1,000th RAW from his hometown of St. Lois due to his current Wellness Policy suspension. He’ll be able to return at the end of the month.

* Diamond Dallas Page is being promoted as a guest on the St. Louis’ FOX affiliate morning show tomorrow. That means he’s in St. Louis for RAW so expect him to appear live.

* Vader, who like DDP appeared in a segment on RAW in the past several weeks leading up to Monday, is currently in St. Louis and expected to appear at the 1,000th RAW event.

Sun has an interview up with Jerry Lawler who says that “there are almost 30 superstars from these past 1,000 episodes that are going to be coming back and joining us for the 1,000th show.”

* Road Warrior Animal has been telling his Twitter followers to petition WWE for him to appear at next week’s 1,000th RAW event. UPDATE: He is now confirmed for the event.

* Speaking of Road Warrior Animal, after competing at Tuesday’s SmackDown taping in San Diego, California, he stopped by the 100.3 KFAN-FM studios for Extreme Pro Wrestling Radio to discuss this coming Monday’s historic 1000th episode of RAW and confirmed his and other former WWE Superstars‘ involvement on the program. The WWE Hall of Famer may have spoiled the payoff of Heath Slater’s returning RAW legend angle while addressing rumors of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin‘s involvement with the program—who has not been announced to appear by WWE but is expected to be there. When asked whether The Rattlesnake will encounter Slater on the show, Animal responded, “Austin will definitely give him the stunner, ya know thats coming! Fans get ready, you’re gonna see a stunner!” Animal, who appeared on RAW in 1997 and 1998, also confirmed that he will be on hand for the festivities: “I will be making an appearance…people will see that my spikes from SmackDown were excellently repainted! Yeah, I’ll be there all painted up, with bells on boys! If it happens it happens, I’m ready!” On what else to expect for the unprecedented show, he said, “It’s gonna be star studded, on my flight alone is me, DDP and Bret “Hitman” Hart!”

* WWE Senior VP of Digital Operations Jason Hoch says that WWE‘s audience will have a say in character and storyline development. Hoch told ESPN.com in an interview that the RawActive social media initiative that starts Monday on RAW will allow the audience to “get a say in what happens next by deciding matches, stipulations, and character development. They can control if a general manager gets fired or who their favorite Superstar’s next opponent will be.”

* WWE Diva AJ Lee was a guest on Mark Madden’s radio show last week to promote tomorrow night’s 1,000th RAW event. The show airs on 105.9 “The X” in Pittsburgh, PA. AJ talked about her recent WWE push and “marriage” to Daniel Bryan on Monday’s RAW. She also talked about her ongoing angle with CM Punk, Kane and Daniel Bryan. She says she’s been a lifelong fan of the business and hints that she may be dating a current WWE superstar:

Also advertised for the live crowd is an eight-man tag match – John Cena & WWE champion C.M. Punk & World Hvt. champion Sheamus & Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan & Alberto Del Rio & Kane & Lord Tensai.

CM Punk will face Mark Henry in a No-DQ, No Count Out Match for the WWE Championship.

Expect the stipulation for the Cena-Lesnar match for Extreme Rules to be announced. Do not expect Lesnar to show up in person, he did not travel with the tour. However, it is always possible he shows up via satellite.

Lord Tensai will crush some other opponent.

Zack Ryder will continue to be buried.

Hopefully they will announce more matches for Extreme Rules, and make Punk-Jericho official.

Raw Preview – 4/9/12

Eight days removed from WrestleMania, and we have a Raw with a couple of questions coming in.
First and foremost on everyone’s mind is Brock Lesnar. Will he speak tonight? Why did he attack Cena?

Secondly is CM Punk. What will his response to Jericho’s attack be?

Thirdly – how bad will the ‘The Three Stooges’ stars be as guest hosts? I’m sure they will get attacked by someone, at some point. Who will that be?

Finally – will WWE find something meaningful to do with the rest of the talent? Ziggler, Ryder, and many others are floundering and need meaningful feuds. Lets hope they start building them.

WWE Signs The Rock To Another Deal?,

wwe signs rock to another dealWWE signed The Rock to another one-year deal that will carry through WrestleMania 29 next year. With Lesnar and The Rock headlining next year and the history of the New York market, it’s possible that WrestleMania 29 will be an immediate sellout – something that WWE hasn’t done since 2007. Regarding Lesnar’s deal, it’s said that Vince McMahon was agreeable on the money side but the number of dates that Lesnar would be working was an issue. Both sides ended up giving a little and Lesnar will be appearing for between 30 and 40 dates leading up to WrestleMania 29.

@JohnCena finally posts his first post WrestleMania tweet

After losing to The Rock and getting F5′ed by a pudgy Brock Lesnar on consecutive nights, this was Cena’s first tweet since prior to the WrestleMania event.

Video – Raw Backstage Fallout

4/2/12 Raw Preview

The Raw after Wrestlemania always has a ton of questions coming in.

Here are just a few for tonight:

  • What does The Rock say after his win in his last appearance for a while?
  • What does John Cena say after coming up short at Wrestlemania?
  • What does Teddy Long do without a show to run?
  • How does Chris Jericho react after losing the WWE championship match, and presumably, the title of best in the world to CM Punk?
  • Will the WWE let the stupid Eve/Ryder angle go away and let The Long Island Iced Z actually have a decent storyline?
  • Will Daniel Bryan or Sheamus make an appearance, or will they save that for Smackdown?
  • What will HHH, Undertaker, and Shawn Michaels say about the Undertaker going to 20-0?
  • Will Batista and/or Brock Lesnar make an appearance?
