So I was just talking about the news items for the day, so a w got edged out by the next to last year or last week, rather last Wednesday, and the ratings got beat out by 2000 viewers in the overall ratings but still managed to carry home the victory within the key core 18 through 49 demographic.
Beating annexed 0.

So congratulations that those two love seeing black love unite and strive against all so awesome to see that, Uh, yeah, this story.
Bruce Pritchard comments on Vince McMahon saying the n word in 2005.
So if you're not already familiar, it was sketch during one of the paper views or skip during one of the paper views back in 2005, when John Cena had newly won, I believe either newly won the W W E championship or was still the U.
S. Champion with the spinner belt.
Either way, he's just coming into the arena.
Vince McMahon stops him.
They're chatting there, shooting the breeze.
Vince McMahon is trying to act cool you know, using all these sling terms and then he's just like at the end.
Well, I'll see you later.
And then they had the nerve to paying the camera off the Booker, Booker T and Booker T.
Just like he didn't say that.
Tell me he didn't just say that I'm like now you got you embarrassing this man having him going along with this stuff.
It's like my you fire people for less for doing stuff.
Lesser than that, I don't know.
But here, Bruce pitcher comes out, I guess.
Saying something about specific man uttering that word.
So who's pictured on Vince McMahon saying The n word? James Stone claims to have made $1 million in merch for DNA and Jericho talks under ticket.
So yep, he was the newly crowned W W e champion.
E s 2005 Survivor serious paper view with the focus of the latest Something to wrestle with.
Bruce Pritchard podcast, the current W W.
E executive director, commented on the segment during which physic man referred to John Zia as his n word.
Pritchard also asked or was also asked Booker T.
And Sharm el Huffman's thoughts about the segment were factored in as they were a part of it.
I don't think it holds up well.
You think, Bruce, you think probably so would do it over.
Well, I think there was people whose opinions were asked and again is just a different time in a different place where you did different things, that we're not things that hold up and I go back and I'm into the Alfred Hitch****, our now taping it several every single night.
What's that got to do with the tea in China? Don't know.
Uh, you sit there and you watch some of the things on television men just basically slapping the blank out of women back and forth as if it was just another day at the office.
And it's just time has a way of making things cringe worthy again.
Different times, different places, different mental.
He acted like this was 30 years ago.
Y'all This was just 15 years ago and back when nobody was saying the n word on TV.
Okay, now, unless you were, unless you were black, like he wasn't saying the n word like why, like duh, like he act like this was he's acting like this is hln like, of course, that's not gonna hold up.
But back then, that's what people were into.
Nobody was into you calling another white man the n word.
Nobody asks for that.
No, but it I don't think anybody thought it was funny except for maybe you, Vince, but yeah, I just think they were.
They were probably tone deaf.
Who knows if Booker and Sharma actually said anything, I don't know if they had and I did, or they probably did have an idea, but if they said anything against it or if they were just like, we're just going to go with the flow Norm Booker.
That's probably how he was looking back on how dog on Triple H was treating them.
He just lap that up.
Elsewhere during the podcast, Pritchard discussed W w attempting to put a restraining order on Brock listeners future matches in 2005 when he went to go work, the new Japan Progressive put a restraining order on matches what, as W.
And Lesner, we're putting together the do***ents for his release from the company.
It was noted that Lesner could pursue a career in the NFL but cannot compete for another pro wrestling promotion slash company until 20 months after his W W departure.
That's interesting, all right, it's all I wanted to read quickly about that little tidbit from Survivor.
Siri's 2000 and five.
So now let's go ahead and get into the show.
All right again.

W W Royal Notes.
Klonopin, Shana Bassler Jeff Hardy's bump.
The Mayor's okay, a lot of picked up a win over shading them.
Baseler The Maze attempted to cash in.
Jeff Hardy took a rough swan.
Thanh and Mawr on wrong.
So let's get into this so well.
The second week in a role on Raw W W women's sad team champion Shane and Bassler was pinned in a tank man last week.
She was pinned by Raw women's champion Oscar, and this week Shannon took the pin as Lana picked up the victory over her.
This is this, also the second week in a row that Lana on Oscar have beaten Nyah Jacks and Shane of Basil, also the second week in a row that Lana didn't get put through a table.
I'm rooting for him.
But, man, how she they just keep making Oh, they could This? Mm.
Why did the undertaker retire? We need him So he could bury Shane of Bassler.
You know is ridiculous.
What they're doing to her don't understand.
Well, um, I'm just glad Lana ain't getting punish will be down.
But, man, how it was off of Nyah or not now, Jax.
But Oscar getting a big like knee across the back of the head of Shana Bassler as Tiana had the Carol food a clutch locked in on Lana that broke the whole and then Lana, just like, Oh, she's knocked out Pender.
So lot of picking up a very, very big victory.
It's good to see.
She's finally trying to get a little bit of mo mentum, you know? So all right.
Jeff Hardy and Elias met in a symphony of destruction.
Met. This was weird.
Like I thought this was done.
And then they started putting up posters like you would have thought a guitar on a pole match would have been enough to be like All right, We're done.
We're just gonna squash it here.
No, we need a Symphony of Destruction match.
And that was that was well, it was entertaining.
I don't say that.
The final sequences of the match saw Hardy Place Alliance on the table and hit a Swanton bomb through the table.
Hardy hit his finisher near the ring, steps in the back of his head, hit the steps on the way down.
I did not see, but I know that was it was like narrow clearance, like something had to happen.
Even he was gonna hit his head on the back of the steps which happened, or his legs were going toe flop directly against the barricade, which would have been devastating.
Why they put the table there is beyond me.
And then, like immediately before, immediately before this, how Elias got set up on the table is that he managed to electrocute himself by trying to jab the neck of a broken guitar into the face of Jeff Hardy, which I believe is considered attempted murder.
But then, as Jeff Hardy moves out the way he ends up jabbing the neck of the guitar right into an AMP.
or speaker? Yeah, be considered speaker, and he ends up electrocuting himself.
And every time one of the commentators on the side would say, Ally is just electrocuting themselves.
They couldn't even keep a straight face every time they would start cracking up.
Laughing like this is supposed to be.
This man almost died.
But in K Fay, this man almost died.
You guys laughing at this man's expense? But yeah, that was a very, very narrow clearance for Jeff Hardy.
And that was crazy.
Hopefully he's okay.
He didn't He didn't show that the bump on the head was affected him too much once he got the pinfall, but hopefully he's okay.
And him hitting Tamburrino as he celebrates his victory was just, uh so that was very good.
Hopefully this is done.
Now we can both both of them could move on.
However, I don't know where they're gonna move on to, you know, maybe have alliance being part of the 24 7.
But e don't know, speaking of 24 7 goose.
So apparently, in a symphony of destruction, Max, you just have a bunch of instruments, including instruments that are not even used within the band that Elias headlines.
So you had you had a piano there for some reason.
And for some reason, Byron Saxton called it the Shinsuke Nakamura Memorial Baby Grand piano, which, with directly over I don't know what that Maybe that's an inside joke.
I mean, I don't know if he's talking about his old theme song That was more the violin, so I don't understand.
Please, Barbara, explain that to me.
Uh, well, for some reason, our truth was hiding inside the baby grand piano away from everybody.
And I guess everybody was standing in the back.
All the 24 7 division was just standing on the back, looking at the monitors, waiting to see where our truth would turn up.
Because immediately after he got out the piano, all the groups started running out like Drew grew, lack and lose your house party minus Calisto.
Where is Calisto? Where? There are ah lot of people that are supposed to be on these shows.
I don't know where where they are, where we'll get into it later about the tag teams.
We don't know where any more of those are.
I don't know where Naomi went.
Lies in Charlotte.
Where is everyone? Where's Alistair Blank? Where's Andrade? Where's my hair, Jamal? Oh, you right there.
I don't understand.
But them's the breaks.
Ah, three hour show.
You can't get nobody.
You got to get that.
Or at least for last week.
You got to get that undertaker promo in 20 minutes.
You can't get nobody else in there.
Okay? All right, let's scan down.
Subject. Alexander picked up a win.
Overall Tech team champions.
After his victory, Cedric left the ring and celebrated on his way up the entrance ramp.
Opposed to joining in with Shelton, Benjamin and M v p of the hurt business.
So this was a good little match.
Decent little man.
I liked it and all started with a new day coming out and kind of teasing the her business after beating them and saying that Oh, well, we picked up two wins to your one.
You know, we beat you for the championships the first time.
And then you guys couldn't follow the rules and couldn't get coffee back into the ring by the count of 10.
So you won that one.
But you couldn't do in the championships, and then we came back.
We graciously allowed you have a re match and we beat you that time.
And then, uh, first of all, they get mad when the business actually calls out or comes out down the ramp.
Which makes no sense because, as Kevin Owens correctly predicted last week on NXT, when you mentioned somebody's name, expect them to come out Why you're acting surprised after your teasing them and berating them for, like, the last five minutes and then they suddenly want to come down to the ring and address you face to face is baffling to me again.
Another he'll move.
I don't know if they're gonna turn he'll soon or not.
But that's great.
Uh, so Cedric, he's just marching straight down the ring straight into the ring, and he just gets up all and Xavier's face and, like, we're gonna handle this one on one.
So they had that match, and Shelton hits the lumbar check, gets the pin, gets the victory and again trying to so a little bit of seeds of dissension.
I think it's too early because they just got him on like a couple of months ago.
A few months ago, they just got him into the her business.
And they just already had this thing where they were beating him up if he was showing that he was a weak link.
And so for them, Thio tryto have the seas of division already into the her business doesn't really make much sense right now.
Like have them rain as champs and have them be together for a while before you start.
So on those division seeds live, that's just again.
I love how as the her business was coming out, Xavier was just shouts out, Aren't there anymore? Tag teams? And again, where are the tactic? I don't nxt He has more tag teams than raw pretty much raw and snack down pretty much well growing a t least you got, like, five.
I think NFC has four.
You got memorized.
You got Killian Murphy and your boy.
Oh, I want to call them rock stars.
Maverick Drake Maverick.
You get the Champs Birch and Larkin, you got undisputed era.
You might have one more.
Yeah, it was like you got mawr.
You got mawr tag teams.
You have more tag teams in NFC than you do on roll.
Like I don't understand.
Such is the case.
We'll see what happens.
Please let her business.
When I want to see them pick up a championship, please let the hurt business, please.
All right, reckoning me.
Oh, how toe spoilers! Oh, how do we know? Reckoning Face Dana Brooke and singles competition after reckoning calls Dana Brooks or cause Dana work to be removed from the survivors.
Siri's match in storyline During the match, reckonings mask fell off and she was pinned by Brooks.
She was revealed to be meal.
You know, this whole time? No, like the worst kept secret, but, um yeah, for this would be her first match on raw and, I believe is her first match on since being called up.
That's not a good waiter.
Start off and then retribution were doing so good.
Man, you have You have slapped Jack, your boy slap Jack, pick up the victory against Ricochet, you know? So I'm thinking, Oh, man, they might go on a bit of a run and I think it was a bunch of There's a bunch of hype online from Main event.
I didn't watch Main event.
I may have to go back and watch it because it looked like retribution.
That's not out of the gobbledy****.
Er, so that was interesting to see.
But yeah, it seemed like retribution was finally getting their feet under them.
And finally trying Thio make something of then being called up.
Yeah, go take 1 ft, one step forward, take two steps.
I don't know what's going on.
Pour me a reckoning.
Hold me a record and she deserves a lot more, Man, she's She's an incredible worker, man.
She's just She worked so hard.
She's been doing this for years.
She made it look young.
She's been doing this for years on the Indy's C C. W.
I believe she was in impact as well, so I just wish her all the best, All right, The men's attempted to cash in on Drew McIntyre after a tag match involving himself and John Morrison versus Schamus and Drew, Miss.
Was claim or kicked by McIntyre before the Kachin could take place.
McIntyre's dis offending the W W E Championship against A J Styles at TLC on December 20th.
So a lot in a minute and a mouthful there.
Uh, first, we'll just go ahead to the main event.
So they were pushing this whole Drew McIntyre is going toe, have himself.
He's gonna have himself a good old interview before the match, but or he's going to have an interview during the night.
Don't we? Don't get a man or we don't get an interview in the first hour.
We don't get an interview in the second hour, literally right before his match.
Then we get the interview and let Z rewind back.
I believe it was like during the first hour when Miz has shamed us out as a guest for Miss TV and shame Mrs Just Trying Thio.
So the seeds of discord and division between Schamus and McIntyre and shameless isn't falling for it.
So shame is gets, um, licks in.
But then Miss comes back with a briefcase and beats him.
And notably, Drew McIntyre doesn't show up to help out Schamus or save shamans.
So keep that in mind.
So now we fast forward to the interview on you know, Drew McIntyre's talking trash about talking trash about them is and how the only reason you're relevant is because you have that briefcase, which he's not lying.
And he's talking trash about a J who's at commentary because he won the triple threat sudden death contender ship match toe.
Have a shot at Drew McIntyre at TLC, so I'll get more to that match after this one.
But oh, and by the way, So right before the match, Myths and Morris said, Come up to come up to a J with Almost is big compadre his compatriot, um, with a peach pie where they got a peach fries this fast eyes beyond me.
I don't know if the P trial was just waiting and catering for somebody to come get it.
I don't understand, but they found a P tribe, and they handed it to a J.
Is just like, hey, you from Georgia.
You like peaches? So they want him to interfere and have them pretty much beat down Drew so that men's can get cash in his money in the bank, shot and get his championship.
Uh, a J is all in for it.
So fast forward to the match.
A J is on commentary.
Drew's talking smack agent gets off of commentary.
And then, for some reason, during the match, uh, shamans gets thrown out over the barricade and a J just comes in and just starts wailing on Drew McIntyre and gets Misamore.
And so, Mrs just livid that he lost a match.
Morrison is like, No, you fool, we're beating them down so you can you can cash in full.
And so that's that's what Age ace Trying to explain how Mrs just going crazy Morrison was just like, okay, and he hits the starship pain on on Drew mag attack.
That's like, Oh, I just hope Please let there be a way that Morrison can get the briefcase from miss, because will you? It's just already been done before, Man with Miss, I don't understand, but yeah, they try to beat him down enough.
But then, as soon as May is now focuses, and it was like, Oh, I see what you're doing.
And then even when a J was getting the briefcase and handed it to the the referee, old stupid men snatches the briefcase away from the referee and then realizes, and then tries to cash in, but then gets claim or than the face.
So that was stupid.
Uh, but then it was a good bit.
And then left alone with one another.
Our Drew McIntyre and A J Styles Age is just like, Oh, I'm sorry, man.
I didn't mean to I didn't mean Thio.
He, like, back flips over the ropes into the waiting arms of almost.
And then as soon as almost get something starts walking away, then you look at home.
You look e love.
It's like somebody in the fighters.
There's a or somebody talking trash and fight like they wanna be in the fight.
But they really don't You look, he hold me back.
Oh, if you want to hold me back, let me trouble for you, son.
Don't hold back.
Go home and hold them back.
Hold back. Don't hold it back.
So that was That was a nice little dynamic to see between those two.
So Oh, and that triple threat match man, that was hard hitting between shame is are not shameless.
Between Riddle, Heatley and Hagee styles.
It was good stuff.
Good spots for everybody.
Just tremendous stuff I loved it was a spy where Keathley kinda punched the other two outside the ring.
And as he was going against the ropes trying to come off for a tow pay the other two just split the other directions and run away.
That was goodness.
Um, yeah, it was just hard it match, man.
Of course, you wouldn't expect anything different from those three.
Um, if they didn't have Riddle acting like a complete doofus, he would be He would have been a single champion by now.
Whether it's been intercontinental champion or U S champion, he would have been a champion by now, but trying to play up this doped out character? Uh, yeah.
So Vince must like something about this character because he had, like, four backstage segments.
And then the last one was after the match after he suffered the pinfall laws to a J Styles by taking the phenomenal forearm, he's backstage and and BP walks upto.
And here he goes with his crackpot schemes, uh, talking about having a business, saying weeding is mhm reading.
Nobody likes Sweeting.
So you call on Rose and we'll make sure your house is we'd less and Yeah.
If you get the joke, you get the joke.
If not, I'll explain it to you later.
But, yeah, it is just some moments.
It was amusing, but it's like, Come on, just let this bag go out there and fight, man.
Uh, but then he gets pretty much ambushed by Lashley, and he gets He didn't make a good point, though.
Saying that M v p pretty much cost him a shot at potentially facing Drew McIntyre by interrupting into the match last night or last week. Rather.
So he didn't make a pretty decent point there.
Um, I don't know, man.
This is what I would really like to see, though Brittle versus Lashley.
Good match to me, man.
Good hard hitting match to remain guys who translate their styles toe pro wrestling.
I love to see that man.
All right, who knows? I actually might end up dropping the title.
Who know? Oh, all right.
Corbyn versus Murphy is set for next week's Friday nights.
So I believe that was all trying toe.
Like I said, Slap Jack one.
Uh, Dana Brooke, one Oscar and Lana one.
Um said one means the Morrison got disqualifying A J styles one.
It was pretty much all the matches.
Remember all the backstage segments? I remember.
