Wrestling News and Notes: Backstage at Raw, Raw TV viewers up slightly, Nash to appear in Magic Mike sequel
WWE Monday Night Raw was in Memphis this week, and Jerry “The King” Lawler wasn’t the only Memphis wrestling legend to appear in front of the live audience.
Wow, interesting move there by WWE creative, closing Raw with a long segment putting the spotlight on the Rusev-Mark Henry match that, by all rights, should be the first or second match on Night of Champions.
You understand why WWE brings in Jerry Springer for the supposed season premiere of Monday Night Raw. This is what WWE does: thumb its nose at its hard-core fans while trying to reach out and grab at what it can from the mainstream.
Brie Bella, the good girl, reminisces about her mother telling her about how an ultrasound showed her and her twin sister, Nikki, holding hands in the womb.
Wrestling, like a cockroach in an abandoned building, has proven itself hearty enough to survive anything, but whether sports entertainment as we know it now can survive in its present form is very much at question. I’d recommend enjoying what we have while we still have it, because change is coming, and the changes that I see coming aren’t good.

Hogan birthday does its job: Until Brock Lesnar’s music hit, the Hulk Hogan birthday celebration made no sense whatsoever, except as a throwback to the fun Old School Raw from earlier in the year.
When you’re nWo, you’re nWo for life. Sure, we get it. Time to move on was 15 years ago, but it looks like we’re going to get yet another reunion at this week’s WWE Monday Night Raw, which ostensibly is the go-home show to SummerSlam, but is going to be as much Hulk Hogan birthday bash as what it should be.
This week’s WWE Monday Night Raw was light on in-ring action, as this video from the scheduled match between Roman Reigns and Kane demonstrates.
Paul Levesque, known to wrestling fans as Triple H, the 13-time WWE world champion and now executive vice president of the company, doesn’t like WWE fans.

Sting is finally talking publicly about his plans regarding WWE, and first on his agenda: a match with Undertaker.
MISS: Sting wasn’t there OK, so we knew he wasn’t going to be there, but the teases that Sting gave us last week on Twitter and Facebook about 07.14.14 had to come with more payoff than a commercial spot for the new WWE video game.

Lana, the leggy mouthpiece for new WWE talent Alexander Rusev, has been the subject of criticism from some fans who didn’t like her promo dedicating Rusev’s match at last night’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
