Going in Raw’s Steve and Larson started a new series there they look at rumored WWF/E angles that never took place and simulate them on WWE 2K18. This week they look at the two-year feud Macho Man Randy Savage wanted to have with Shawn Michaels.
I remember Lanny Poffo talking about how his brother Randy wanted to have this angle with Shawn Michaels, but I never heard anything about the hair vs. career match or Savage starting the feud by cracking a champagne bottle over HBK’s head. Still, I think these two would have had a hell of a feud with great matches.

This last weekend, WWE announced a few cuts to their roster – Emma, Darren Young and Summer Rae.
It’s never good to see a talent lose their job, especially when they’ve worked hard to make it to the WWE. Summer Rae came out with a statement on her Instagram about what achieving her dream of being a WWE Diva meant to her.
daniellemoinet: They say you’ll never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. Well that wasn’t true in this situation. I knew the value of this moment, I knew the magnitude of this moment. I hear some of you say “but you didn’t become champ”, “you didn’t get the push you deserved”, “you didn’t get a title run”. But see, I got MY title. I became a WWE Diva.
In this picture above, my in ring debut on TV, I knew the value of that moment. In that moment I became a WWE Diva. I could take a small, very small breath of relief because I did it! For so many years I dreamt of stepping onto that main stage of Monday Night Raw & then getting into that ring with these strong, beautiful, smart & courageous women. I wanted to be one of them. I knew I could be one of them! I felt it SO deep down in my heart. Once it happened I of course set more goals for myself within the company & trained harder to reach them. But the people that flood my comments with these things that I ‘should have’ gotten — you guys are missing the overall dream that I achieved. That I went to Monday Night RAW as a fan & sat in the crowd & watched the girls & wanted that more than anything I had ever felt in my body ever before. Then, I did it. I did it. 😊 I’ve wrestled in over 15 countries on 4 continents & made friends in fans all over the world. I have had the opportunity to live out my dream! And that is because God blessed me with obtaining my dream through hard work & determination. So please don’t fight with one another about me & start boards about Justice for Summer Rae. Know that I DID IT! I am a WWE Diva, a WWE Superstar. And no one will ever be able to take that away from me!
The picture she refers to in the post is of her and Fandango – she came up to the main roster as his dance partner. She’s various roles over the years, being BFFs with Sasha Banks, managing Rusev for a spell. Some may not like everything Summer Rae did on TV, but she got to live her dream and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.
I tip my coffee glass to Summer Rae and I hope she does great things in the future.
After I came home from Spokane, I played a lot of WWE 2K18. While my main goal was to accumulate enough points to unlock Eddie Guerrero – which I did before I left to get dinner – I also added some more wrestlers to my FCCW roster.
This one is KFD Monkey – or Kung Fu Death Monkey when it’s spelled out. I named the character after one of the beers I tried at the Lantern Taphouse. When I designed the character, I tried to give him a kung fu outfit, but the only monkey part is the mask. The create a superstar mode doesn’t allow certain outfits to go together, which is OK.
I also gave Kung Fu Death Monkey a striker-type move set.
The next few wrestlers were creations I downloaded.
I love Crowe’s look and her moveset is great. I want to say I found her on the GoingInRaw hashtag or Vampire hastag, but I’m not 100 percent sure.
Hurricane came as a set with two other wrestlers, but I couldn’t download them because they contain moves of superstars I haven’t unlocked yet.
I believe I found Savage from the Going in Raw hastag. He has a good look and his entrance is Bobby Roode’s, which I love. The only conflicting nature is I use Roode’s theme for Brother Cronin, but I can change it. Or maybe Savage will join Genisis.
It’s a new episode of Best Action Dojo Wrestling. Space Horse 5000 has already quaified for the Haitch belt challenge. Now Steve and Larson will hold a tournament to see who will challenge him. One of these competitors if Ted.
