Introducing: "Stop the Supernatural"

Introducing: "Stop the Supernatural"

Its a typical night. Not unlike any night you have ever experienced in your entire life. Your probably just getting home from a long day working a job you thought once would be cool, but that never came to be. You hang up your keys and jacket to sit down to your favorite TV show in your pathetically small, cramped studio apartment when you hear a knock at the door. "Who could that be?" you say quietly out loud to yourself. You're not expecting anyone, you never have before why would today be any different. You unlock the dead bolt, twist the k**b, the door squeaks open to reveal a snarling drooling beast you have only ever experience in movie, book, video game and TV show. You slam the door shut. Your brain is spiraling or every bit of information you have ever caught in your childhood on what you could possibly do to defend yourself when you realize; every story is different! Steak it, shoot it, blow it up, burn it WHAT TO DO? Grab onto your nearest computer device and come here to Stop The Supernaturals. Each week I will dissect a different piece of supernatural media and break down how they stopped them, what they used and if you just so happen to come across this weapon of sorts, how functional it would actually be for you in the real world to put an end to the creature that goes bump in the night. Happy Hunting!

WWE Raw Wrapup 8/20/2012

After a successful Summerslam showing, Monday Night Raw opens with the triumphant Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman. Was last night Triple H's last match? Only time and promos will tell.Heyman grabs the mic first and addresses the WWE Universe, expressing how "uncomfortable" last night's match was to watch. Heyman reminds us of his time as an announcer, seeing HHH's quad tear apart and finish a match. A torn quad couldn't stop The Game, but Brock Lesnar and a broken arm could. Heyman says that HHH quit on his family, his company, friends, fans and everyone when he tapped out. Heyman says nobody should feel sorry for Trips because he picked the fight. Heyman calls Scott Armstrong, last night's referee, down to the ring so that Brock Lesnar can "address him". Armstrong heads to the ring in a less than eager fashion, but finally makes his way up the stairs and into the ring. Lesnar has two words for Armstrong: "Good job." Heyman claims that Lesnar ended the career of HHH and has endangered the future of WWE. Heyman declares him the new "King of Kings", the master of the Brocktogon and the conqueror of the WWE Universe. Apparently all of the WWE Universe's members are Brock Lesnar's subjects now.Interesting take on things from last night. Lesnar isn't expected to be around much, as he only has so many dates that he can be used for, so curious to see if this is a reign from afar or if they progress things right away.CM Punk Touted that he feels after defending his title twice in one night, he should get to pick his opponent on Raw. AJ Lee is "taking it under consideration".Match 1: Kofi Kingston and R-Truth (Tag Team Champions) and Sin Cara vs Cody Rhodes and Primetime PlayersWinners: Kingston, R-Truth and Sin Cara via pinfallKofi and Truth show up with toys to give the kids. Can't really criticize giving toys to children, but it's kind of a cheap ploy when you take a step back. Young and Kofi start out and Kofi's speed helps him take early control. Young shoulders Kofi down and Kingston answers with a double leapfrog and back elbow. Truth is tagged in and they land a double hip toss. O'Neal comes in and takes a double dropkick, followed by Sin Cara dragging Rhodes outside and climbing to the top rope, but Rhodes distances himself. The Champs and Cara are in the ring and the PTP and Rhodes gather themselves into a commercial.Kofi escapes a cravat and tags Truth in to run wild on Darren Young with an axe kick for two. Young fights back into it and Rhodes blind tags in, sneaking up on Truth with a Russian leg sweep for two. Cody hits a gourdbuster and stomps at the head of Truth. Titus tags in and keeps the pressure on Truth with strikes and a neck wrench. Truth fights up to his feet and punches his way out but runs into a boot for a near fall. Titus's turn for a gourdbuster, dropping Young on Truth. Young right into a bodyscissors and chinlock. Truth continues trying to fight out, but O'Neal gets tagged back in to attack Truth in the corner. Truth kicks his way out but gets leveled by a Titus clothesline for another two count and chinlock. The crowd rallies and Truth stands up, which leads to Titus punching Kofi of the apron; Truth surprises him with a heel kick from behind. Rhodes and Cara tag in and Cara opens up with a handspring elbow, hurricanrana and an enzuigiri from the apron. A springboard cross body gets a two count and the Tag Champs clear the PTP from the ring with stereo dropkicks. Truth backdrops Kofi onto the PTP and Rhodes tries to remove the mask of Sin Cara. Cara trips Rhodes and wins with a jackknife pin.Expected double rivalry six man tag with the expected happy ending. Nothing fundamentally wrong, just nothing new.An anger management tag team match will take place tonight - Kane teams with Zack Ryder and Daniel Bryan with The Miz. Angry guys teaming with people they have problems with? At least it's a bit different.AJ Lee is to be interviewed and David Otunga shows up, offering his legal counsel. Otunga lets the "c" word slip and AJ says Otunga can offer his services in the ring, against an opponent to be chosen by AJ. AJ now addresses Punk's earlier Tout - She likes the idea, and Punk can choose any opponent, pending her approval.Match 2: Ryback vs Mike Spinner and Andy Tabarez?Winner: Ryback via disqualificationRyback disposes of blue tights goof and knocks down black tights goof. Black tights takes a club to the back and gets tossed to the mat. The over the shoulder powerbomb is next, then he gets dead lifted into two more. Blue tights punches him from the apron and takes a reverse suplex over the rope for his trouble. Ryback readies for the double Shellshocked when Jinder Mahal attacks from behind and puts Ryback in the Camel Clutch. Ryback plants a hand and stands up, delivering the backpack chinbreaker, sending Mahal running. Blue tights makes the mistake of standing up behind Ryback and takes a lariat. As a show of strength and a message to Mahal, Ryback secures both guys on his shoulders and delivers the double Shellshocked.Nice to see a Ryback match with some kind of change to it. Mahal and Ryback in a feud is still a bit odd, but progress is progress.Dolph Ziggler finds Chris Jericho in the back and Ziggler wants a rematch. Jericho drops catchphrases and says it's Ziggler who doesn't know how to win the big one. AJ skips in and around both men and says as the GM, it's her job to make things interesting. A rematch will take place - If Jericho loses, his contract terminates. If Ziggler loses? Chris Jericho takes the MITB briefcase. Ziggler chases after AJ to protest.Alberto del Rio heads toward the ring and slaps some agua out of the hands of Ricardo Rodriguez. ADR has filed a protest with Booker T concerning Sheamus' win last night. ADR thinks he should be the World Heavyweight Champion by now, since he got robbed by the referee and Sheamus. Alberto demands another title shot, right now. AJ's music cues up and she skips out to the stage. She doesn't have jurisdiction over the World Heavyweight Championship, but she can book Alberto in a match tonight.Match 3: Alberto del Rio vs Randy OrtonWinner: Randy Orton via pinfallSheamus comes out as the match starts to observe from the commentary table. Orton opens with rights and a dropkick. Off the ropes, Orton shoulders Alberto to the floor. Back in, Orton bounces ADR off the top rope for an assisted suplex, getting a two count. Orton stomps the limbs of Alberto and drops a knee across the face for another two count. Orton stays aggressive in the corner and mounts for ten punches, but at five he gets dumped on his face. Alberto with a snapmare, kick to the back and a jumping stomp, followed by a chinlock. Orton dodges in the corner for his elevated school boy. Alberto kicks out and lands a dropkick to the face of a kneeling Orton. Back to the chinlock, then a snap suplex from ADR. Michael Cole is in full heel-asshole mode with Sheamus. There's grilling the man on the mic and there's obnoxiousness. Guess what side Cole is erring on?ADR hits a double stomp then heads to the top rope, but Orton cuts him off. Orton meets him up top and hits a superplex. Rights back and forth as the men get to their feet, but Orton opens up with a pair of clotheslines and a powerslam. ADR rolls to the apron and Orton wants the elevated DDT. Alberto escapes and lands a step up enzuigiri for a near fall. Orton sneaks around as ADR approaches and hits the backbreaker. Alberto answers with kicks to the arm and wants the Cross Armbreaker, but Orton answers with a swinging neckbreaker. Alberto hops to the middle rope and Orton catches him for the elevated DDT out of the corner, which seems to be becoming a standard alternative. Orton coils and Ricardo Rodriguez hops on the apron, then gets scared off. Sheamus chases him off. ADR hits a Backstabber and pins Orton who gets his foot on the bottom rope. Sheamus points it out to the ref who stops the count. ADR turns around into an RKO in the confusion for the loss.The Sheamus/ADR feud continues and Orton pins the number one contender (or at least the last one) which by wrestling logic immediately puts him in the title race. There needs to be some kind of change, as we've been very overexposed to this group.Match 4: Brodus Clay vs Damien SandowWinner: Damien Sandow via pinfallApparently Brodus' leg is all healed up from Damien Sandow's recent attack, since he has no problem dancing. At least he has it taped up heavily. Tonight, Brodus gets his chance at revenge. Sandow, via a cut-in promo, says he will return the Funkasaurus to extinction.Sandow wants a single leg takedown but the power of Brodus lets him take over early. Brodus misses a haymaker and Sandow wraps his leg in the ropes. Brodus fights off and hits a clothesline then delivers a back body drop. Brodus rams Sandow head first into the top turnbuckle then hits a belly to belly suplex. Clay continues with a big elbow drop, but Sandow fights up with strikes. Clay roars at his opponent and squashes him in the corner and hits a running headbutt to the chest. Clay wants another corner splash, but Sandow dodges and school boys him (with a handful of tights) for the quick win.Clay is less than thrilled and lands a t-bone siplex and big splash. That might be a visual victory, but Sandow got the pinfall. Clay gets to celebrate with dancers, kids and music. Way to make winning not mean anything.HBK is getting mic'd up ahead of his live via satellite interview.Cole poses the question of whether HHH is done to Shawn Michaels. HBK says he knows what's going through the head of HHH right now. Shawn says you can't quite prepare for the day that shows it might time to hang up the boots. HHH is a man of integrity, unlike Heyman and Lesnar. Shawn speaks in the past tense about Triple H, to push the idea of him being completely done. HBK calls himself a burden to HHH in recent weeks,

WWE Summerslam 2012

Youtube Preshow: Antonio Cesaro vs Santino Marella (c), United States ChampionshipWimner: Antonio Cesaro via pinfall, new United States ChampionAfter a distraction from Aksana, Cesaro hits the Neutralizer to capture his first WWE gold.I didn't get to actually watch this match, but aside from the outcome, it wasn't much to miss. As a champion, Cesaro will have to wrestle longer matches than he has since his debut. Match 1: Chris Jericho vs Dolph ZigglerWinner: Chris Jericho via submissionY2J is back in full force in 2012, even down to the tights. Jericho's ribs are taped, continuing to sell the injury from Smackdown and potentially giving him an "out" should Ziggler win. Ziggler being the show opener could indicate a cash-in attempt tonight as well. Jericho kicks out of a Zigzag after Ziggler gets the knees up for the Lionsault. As Ziggler readies the next attack, Jericho hits a surprise Codebreaker, but Ziggler rolls to the floor. Back in, Vickie grabs Jericho's leg and Ziggler hits a small package from the apron, but Jericho out at a very close two, then over into the Walls of Jericho, Liontamer style for the victory.Jericho wins the big one against Mr. Money in the Bank, who we may very well see later in the night. I expected some kind of beat down or injury to excuse Jericho for the Fozzy tour, but a top notch match, regardless.Lesnar and Heyman are in the back, to be interviewed. The referee has been asked to use his discretion; this will be a fight to the finish, not a wrestling match. Lesnar says this is a fight HHH cannot win. Heyman says if he's not down with that, they have two words for him: Tap out. Match 2: Daniel Bryan vs KaneWinner: Daniel Bryan via pinfallBryan has a YES/NO argument with the crowd and is startled by Kane's pyro. Bryan opens with kicks to the leg of Kane, but Kane takes over with power after Bryan backflips over him in the corner. Bryan tries to vault over Kane but gets caught then booted after an okana roll attempt. Off the ropes, Bryan hits a low dropkick and goes to work on the leg of Kane. Kane responds by grabbing Bryan and launching him to the floor. Bryan quickly gets back in and kicks Kane, then lands a su***de dive back to the floor. Bryan climbs to the top as Kane gets back in and lands a missile dropkick for one. Bryan shakes his head as he becomes unhinged from the YES chants, then lays into the chest of Kane with shin kicks. Like I said last night, it's now the standard for Bryan to whiff the headshot and he does, allowing Kane to take back over, bouncing him from corner to corner and hitting a side slam for two. Kane goes to the top rope and dives, hitting a clothesline from the top, then heads to the corner, ready to call for the Chokeslam. Bryan escapes and bails to the apron, then drapes Kane across the top. Back in, Bryan takes a big right hand, but slaps Kane in response. Kane goes ballistic on Bryan in the corner and stops just shy of a DQ. Bryan drop toe holds Kane into the middle turnbuckle and then kicks the rope into his face. Bryan wants the Nolock but Kane resists. Now Bryan hits the headshot kick. Bryan ascends the top rope and wants a diving headbutt but lands in Kane's hands for a Chokeslam which Kane is slow to capitalize on. Kane calls for the Tombstone and wants Bryan to get to his feet. Bryan goes up, but slides down and gets the win with a surprise small package.Bryan via a clean pin over Kane at Summerlam? WWE is getting concretely behind the smaller guys on the roster, finally. At least Bryan, and they'd be stupid not to. Kane makes a beeline for the back, livid. I don't think we've seen the end of this rivalry as it's Bryan's first win over Kane 1 on 1 and it was a roll up.Kane is going ballistic in the back and is looking for Bryan. Josh Matthews makes the mistake of asking Kane a question and gets jettisoned for his efforts, after telling Kane Bryan left. Kane knocks more stuff over and leaves. Definitely not the end.Match 3: Rey Mysterio vs The Miz (c), Intercontinental ChampionshipWinner: The Miz via pinfallMysterio comes out in a Batman styled set of ring gear, complete with cape. Rey Mysterio absolutely does not need an IC title win here tonight, whereas it would do Miz a world of good to beat Rey cleanly tonight. Here's hoping for no shenanigans. Miz gets the PPV blow up lawn ornament AWESOME and his PPV jacket. You can't lose with an inflatable entrance.Miz, being the bigger man, takes Rey down with an early shoulder block. Rey with a go behind and flipping Miz ass over tea kettle for a quick bridging pin attempt. Miz slides to the floor and then back in. Miz answers with big strikes and a clothesline, but Rey ducks. Rey dodges another clothesline and gets slid out under the ring, but rolls through to avoid getting hurt. Miz gives chase but ends up getting dropkicked. Rey wants a lucha bulldog, but Miz catches him in the wheelbarrow position and puts him in the barricade. Miz tosses him back in the ring and covers for a one count. Miz into a chinlock to slow things down. Rey gets up to his feet and tries to fight out; Miz tries a belly to back suplex, but Rey lands on top and kicks at Miz. Rey rushes Miz, but gets caught in a modified rack and dropped across Miz's shoulders for a backbreaker. Miz jaws at Mysterio and punches him right in the face, then boots him and pins, but only gets a two.Miz with a cravat now and Rey rights out again, but runs into a clothesline, which Miz capitalizes on for a two count. Miz plays to the crowd as Mysterio recovers in the corner, then readies for his corner clotheslines; he connects. Miz to the top, but Rey crotches him, then heads to the top himself. Rey with a diving senton from the top; Rey follows by rolling up to a hurricanrana position, but Miz hits a sitout powerbomb for two. Rey ducks another boot attempt and rolls Miz up, who kicks out but gets kicked in the head for another two. Miz takes Rey up for a powerslam, but Mysterio spins back down for a DDT, but still only gets a two count. Rey heads to the top again, but Miz meets him with a right hand. Miz follows to the top and wants a superplex, but Rey fights off and puts Miz in place for the 619. Rey up for the splash, but Miz sits up to avoid. Miz with the Skull Crushing Finale attempt, but Rey rolls him up for a very close near fall. Rey tries to follow up but this time gets caught by Skull Crushing Finale for the win.Clean win over a future hall of famer - Good night for The Miz. He beat him by out maneuvering him and landing his finisher. More matches need to end this way, not just in WWE but around the wrestling world now a days. Miz is still your IC Champion and for good reason. He looks better than ever since returning.Eve and Teddy Long leave a meeting with AJ and Long things she's doing a great job. Eve sarcastically agrees. CM Punk shows up in front of the GM's door and heads in. Punk questions the look on AJ's face and she ignores him. Punk protests the triple threat as he can lose his title without losing; he suspects this is because he rebuked AJ's proposal. AJ is staring into space and Punk says she's disrespecting him, just like his opponents. Punk says he'll win tonight and he'll get respect tomorrow night. AJ continues staring blankly as he leaves. Weird.Match 4: Alberto del Rio vs Sheamus (c), World Heavweight ChampionshipWinner: Sheamus via pinfallSheamus goes into this one selling a hurt left arm, which will likely serve to be the focus of Alberto's offense. I still think ADR needs the gold rain pyro on his entrance. After showing up on Smackdown with his elbow taped up heavily, Sheamus enters tonight with no tape at all. Odd choice. Physical tie up into the corner to open but ADR makes some space. Into another corner and Sheamus swings wildly. Both men take a tumble to the floor and this one is going to be a donnybrook. Heading back into the ring, ADR lands kicks to the head of Sheamus and works him in the corner. Sheamus answers with a boot and a swinging neckbreaker then clubs away, but Alberto fights back. ADR wants an early Cross Armbreaker, but Sheamus scoops him up for a rolling fireman's carry. Sheamus wants the Celtic Cross and ADR grabs the top rope to escape, but Sheamus clubs away and puts him in the electric chair. As he's pulled away, he pulls the top turnbuckle off. Before he can get dropped, Alberto gets down and dodges a Brough Kick, leaving Sheamus on the apron. ADR follows with a low dropkick which sends Sheamus to the floor. Del Rio follows to the floor and throws the champ into the steel steps. Alberto heads to the top and hits a flying elbow/forearm to a standing Sheamus for a two count then locks in around the chin of Sheamus. Sheamus fights out and wants another neckbreaker, but ADR avoids and boots Sheamus in the face for two. Alberto with a jumping stomp to the head of Sheamus. Another chinlock keeps Sheamus on the mat, but he begins to fight to his feet again then headbutts his way out. Sheamus suffers a knee and another jumping stomp for two. ADR mocks Sheamus' call for the Brough Kick and heads to the corner - He ends up running into an axe handle, but dodges Sheamus in the corner, sending him into the ringpost. Sheamus fights off and heads to the top, but ADR puts a stop to it, then meets him at the top and hits a top rope version of his double knees to the arm for a close two.Sheamus counters the Cross Armbreaker, but ADR lands and rolls into it in the middle of the ring on the injured arm. Sheamus rolls over and deadlifts ADR for a sideways powerbomb to break it. Back to their feet, Alberto runs into White Noise but kicks out at two. Sheamus heads to a corner and calls for the Brough Kick, but Alberto avoids; he ends up on the apron and takes forearms to the chest. Now up to the corner for punches, but ADR drops Sheamus onto the turnbuckle and hits a running enzuigiri for a very clo
