McGregor Retires?

Hello and Welcome to the Basement...

So weeks after agreeing to try and get his win back against Nate Diaz at UFC 200... Conor McGregor out of no where announces  his retirement... tweeting, "I Have Decided to Retire Young"  so obviously he's tucking his tail between his legs and running from the fight, and he's a coward right?

Well not so fast, because UFC President Dana White went on Sportscenter, saying that McGregor was removed from the scheduled fight due to McGregor being unwilling to fly to Las Vegas to participate in mandatory promotional activities. Which basically was to just film the commercial and get all the marketing details done, which is very similar to what went down with Nick Diaz (Nate Diaz's brother) several years ago, where Nick skipped some 'mandatory' things, got removed from an event, and then was later added back. And white was sure to say that McGregor was in Iceland training. So that could be the entire situation right? McGr…

Hello and Welcome to the Basement...

And welcome to... well I'll guess I'll call this the RAW-View?

Basically, this will be just another me, as one of the many wrestling smarks going over Monday Night RAW, not a total recap of things, but what I liked and didn't liked.

Show opening with a talk show segment, Dean Ambrose's Aslyum, with guest Shane McMahon. Jacques and Pierre, excsues me Kevin Owens and Sami Zayne make their way to the ring followed by Jericho, and things ended up turning into a little scuffle to set up matches, Jericho vs Sami (which Jericho won) and Owens vs Ambrose (which Ambrose won) for the night and matches with Jericho vs Ambrose and Owens vs Sami at Payback It's the usual formula, because we can't open RAW with a match anymore, we have to have a 'talking segment'. The only other thing of note was that Jericho attacked Ambrose after his match, which was the main event and that the crowd lost interest in the match to…
