The Road to #HELLINACELL -- Week 2 (Raw 9/23)

Image
RAW

Come on, dude: So we open Raw with the 10 guys who saved Daniel Bryan on Raw last week (RVD, Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, The Usos, Primetime Players, R-Truth, Zach Ryder, and Justin Gabriel, whom I will henceforth refer to as the Proletariat) all lined up on stage for what appears to be another of Hunter's delightful town hall meetings.  Trips and Steph come out and WELCOME the crowd to MONDAY NIGHT RAW like so many Vinces past, complete with Steph all-too-conspicuously dropping a cheap "GREAT TO BE HERE IN (CURRENT CITY)!"  Long story short, it turns out they brought the Proletariat out to thank them for "taking matters into [their] own hands" and "finally being men" as if this were all some elaborate test.  HHH adds that he's sure it had nothing to do with Daniel Bryan but RVD cuts him off to inform him that they were, in fact, fighting for D-Bry.  "Wow," HHH exclaims, musing that he's never heard of a wrestler fighting FOR an…

-This week's biggest headline happened off the field when Electronic Arts (EA) Sports announced Thursday that there would be no college football video game next year (what would have been "NCAA Football '15") due to ongoing legal issues with the NCAA.  Basically, several organizations including EA and the NCAA are being sued by thousands of student-athletes both past and present for the use of their names and/or likenesses in "NCAA Football."  Every organization has settled but the NCAA, who vows to continue the fight to keep their slaves--er, student ath-o-leets--from seeing any of the massive profits they generate for any number of organizations including the NCAA themselves.  Moreover, it remains unclear whether the plaintiffs who are active student athletes will be allowed under NCAA rules to collect the settle…

A hearty CONGRATULATIONS to WWE Diva Brie Bella and my favorite professional wrestler for nearly a decade, BRYAN DANIELSON (a.k.a. "Daniel Bryan").  
They just got ENGAGED!

RAW 9/16/13

Daniel Bryan is Going to Fight: Well the ununthinkable happened on Raw just like we all knew it would.  HHH did an expert job breaking down the "800 lb gorilla that is sitting in the room" (Trips, if you're going to use a cliche, use the damn cliche, don't try to "spruce it up" or whatever) of the fast count on Daniel Bryan's title win at Night of Champions like a sportscaster breaking down a coach's challenge in football.  Showing Scott Armstrong's "normal cadence" was a particularly nice touch.  An even nicer touch was Armstrong turning to Bryan and saying "they got us Daniel" and HHH holding this up as indisputable evidence of a conspiracy between Bryan and Armstrong (as Bryan desperately insists he doesn't know what Armstrong is talking about but who the hell cares) and proceeding to mercilessly berate him about embarrassing himself and the company and disgracing the title and a plague on his house.  Hunter…

-Obviously, the big story of the week was #1 Alabama travelling to #6 Texas A&M for an epic SEC West showdown that was almost every bit as epic as it was billed to be.  It started in somewhat similar fashion to last year's game with A&M jumping out to an early 14-0 lead midway through the first quarter.  This time, however, the Tide answered back furiously with five consecutive touchdowns over the course of the next 23 minutes (spanning three quarters, including a 21 point 2nd quarter), capped off by a spectacular 73-yard interception return for a TD by Vinnie Sunseri.  Unfortunately for the Aggies (and for Johnny Football's Johnny Heisman hopes), that pick-six and a horrible interception thrown by Manziel on the goal line when it was tied at 14 were the one and only dif…

The Road to #HELLINACELL -- Prologue

It's a very exciting time here at Vundablog.com!  You see, we recently bought ourselves two tickets to something neither of us have ever seen live and in person: a WWE pay-per-view event.  That event is none other than the yearly HELL IN A CELL pay-per-view which is happening October 27th at the American Airlines Arena.  Not only is this awesome in its own right, but it also hugely magnifies the importance of the events of the next six weeks of Raw and Smackdown episodes as they build up to an event we will actually be part of and experience firsthand (I'm not counting Battleground because it's stupid; you can't build up a PPV in 3 weeks so I'm just treating it like one of those TNA free PPVs because fuck WWE).  SIX weeks is a particularly long, slow, epic build for a wrestling pay-per-view and we're so excited about this that we decided to take you all along with us on the journey to HELL IN A CELL!


Let's set the stage before it all begins in just a few s…

-Honestly, if you would have asked me if I'd rather see the Miami Heat three-peat or the 'Canes beat the Gators, I would have had to think about it.  Not a lot of people really get that this is even a rivalry or why (particularly Gator fans who think the pre-Tebow college football universe is basically BCE and have the historical context of the common pet dog) but for those of us that KNOW our history, this rival is bigger than FSU--or at least far more bitter.  Th…

I can't wait to read more about the Last Territory. These previews and articles and endorsements are all I have to entice me. I hope it entices you to donate to their kickstarter.

-So, it's Gators/Canes week.  The matchup I've waited ten years for.  Twice.  See, I was raised on Hurricanes football since I was six years old by an old school Canes fan who remembers the days when these two teams used to clash every year much like both teams do with Florida State.  The winner of the yearly game would receive the War Canoe Trophy--a several hundred pound solid wood trophy in the shape of a canoe.  Unfortunately, in 1987, in the midst of The U's decade of dominance, the Gators decided that their SEC schedule was simply too demanding and they canceled the yearly series with the Canes.  It seems that even now in the era of the 12 game regular season (the customary number was 11 not too long ago), the Gators not only need to be able to play 7 home games and only 4 away games (plus a neutral site game against Georgia) but they also need to be able to pile 3 cupcakes on top of FSU …

Writing Wasted Youth.

I've been trying to write this film since 2006. I've done a ton of brainstorming in that time. I've even started writing it like this before. I have 67 pages of it. Some of the 67 I still like and still works. So I started combining it with the three scenes I've written since that last post. Now I have the first eleven pages of my script written towards a first draft. Today I will take an hour and put it toward the script. I'm sharing with you a pic of my brainstorming a Wasted Youth logo.
