Commentators:  Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, and JBL

Tonight:  AJ Styles Vs James Ellsworth, for the WWE World Championship

Segment Number 1:  Randy Orton Promo

Orton gives credit where credit is due to Bray Wyatt.  The evil side goes deeper than he thought.  The harder you fight, the more you pull into the darkness, the more you suffocate.  Orton feels like he is losing the fight, but Bray has a bigger problem.  Randy is wrath, he is vengeance, and Randy is coming for Bray.  The light cut off, and we see Bray in a coffin.  Bray is coming after Orton, he is about to take him on a journey where he is grasping for his last breath.  And there is nothing he can do about it.  He’s here.

Match Number 1:  Randy Orton Vs Luke Harper

In the middle of the match, Bray Wyatt comes out, with the coffin.  Bray comes in the ring, to DQ Luke Harper.  The Wyatt Family attack Orton.  The casket opens, up, and Kane shows up.  Kane and Orton signal for a RKO/Chokeslam, but the lights go out, and the Wyatts are gone when the come back on.

Winner:  Randy Orton (Via DQ)

Segment Number 3:  AJ Styles Promo

Cathy Dennis has AJ Styles, tonight he is defending the WWE World Title.  AJ can’t believe what is happening tonight.  He is the face who runs this place.  He is the WWE World Champion, and he has to defend his title against the skinny, piece of turd.  And we know he is not in AJ’s league.  Dean Ambrose can do something to cost him the title.  It’s like WCW all over again, with David Arquette becoming WCW Champion.  And he has to face that “noodle”.  But if Dean Ambrose does something, he will find him.

Tonight:  World Championship Match, AJ Styles Vs James Ellsworth

Tonight:  6-Man Tag Match, Dolph Ziggler and Beauty and the Man-Beast Vs The Spirit Squad and The Miz.

Next:  Naomi Vs Alexa Bliss

Match Number 2:  Alexa Bliss Vs Naomi

Alexa got the revenge she needed after losing to Naomi a few weeks ago.  Alexa picks up the win with Twisted Bliss.  They can easily set Naomi up to be the next challenger, since she pinned the Number One Contender.  Alexa has a title shot on November 8th, live on Smackdown against Becky Lynch.  Renee Young interviews Alexa after her match, and she said the “Cinderella Dream” ends in 3 weeks, and the wicked witch will be done.  There will be a new princess, and that will be Alexa Bliss.

Next:  Carmella

Segment Number 6:  Carmella Promo

Two months ago in Brooklyn, New York she was basking in her first PPV match, and who’s music did she hear?  Nikki Freaking Bella, and she doesn’t get why the fans love her.  But Carmella is about to spill the tea on Nikki Bella.  Here comes Nikki.  Nikki is curious to hear what Carmella has to say, so instead of attacking from her behind, she can say it to her face.  Once again, Nikki is stealing her spotlight, but then again she is not surprised since her boyfriend is John Cena.  And she got her spot because she gets to go home to “Mr. Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect”.  Nikki is not surprised by this, and Carmella thinks she is hiding it.  But they have two shows together.  Everyone knows, but she chooses not to talk about it in WWE.  Nikki calls Carmella a bully, just like the internet bullies.  Carmella calls John a gold digger.  And we see some edited clips of “Total Bellas” to prove that point.  Carmella can edit, but what she doesn’t know is Nikki paved her own road, she pays her own bills, and wears the pants in her relationship.  You don’t believe her, when they didn’t believe in her, Nikki trained hard to prove them wrong, and when she did get that respect, her world shattered when she hurt her neck.  And she worked hard to get back to where she is at, and she won’t let a princess from Staten Island to hurt her.  Carmella tells Nikki she is a marketing campaign, with her “Fearless” T-shirt.  But she used her looks to get into the company.  She used her sister to get in the ring, and she is using her man to get in this spot.

Segment Number 7:  Interview with James Ellsworth

Renee Young is backstage with James.  James is nervous about tonight’s match, and he knows he’s not in the league of the Champ who runs this camp.  But he is going to be okay, win or lose.  Because he can tell his Grandchildren that for one night, he main evented Smackdown Live with AJ Styles.

Next:  6-Man Tag Match

Match Number 4:  Dolph Ziggler and Beauty and Man-Beast (WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions) Vs The Miz and Spirit Squad.

With some help from The Miz, decking Heath Slater, Kenny pins Slater, with a roll up and wins the match.

Winners:  The Miz and Spirit Squad.

Segment Number 9:  Daniel Bryan and Natalya

Nattie wants to be the first person to volunteer in the Survivor Series challenge.  She quotes Whitney Houston, and wants show her cats Instagram.

Match Number 5:  Jack Swagger Vs Baron Corbin.

End of Days, in very quick fashion.  Probably shorter than the main event.

Winner:  Baron Corbin (By Pinfall)

Segment Number 10:  More Natalya and Daniel Bryan

More cat pictures, but Dean Ambrose come out, dressed in a ref shirt.  He is ready to serve as the special guest ref.  He will call it down the line.  Daniel says he can’t be the ref tonight.  He can do anything else he want, just not a ref for the World Title match.

Next:  WWE World Title match

Match Number 6:  AJ Styles (WWE World Champion) Vs James Ellsworth, for WWE World Title.

Dean Ambrose served as many roles in this match.  Special Ring Announcer, Special Bell Ringer, Promoting WWEShopzone.com.  He did everything, and he made AJ so mad that AJ kept punching James Ellsworth to the point that he made it past the 5 count, so is DQ;d, losing the match to James.  The challenger did lay a offenive move, with Sweet Chin Music.  Dean announcers AJ is the loser of this match, AJ charges the ring, and is hit by Dirty Deeds to end the show.

Winner:  James Ellsworth (By DQ)

Kevin’s Thoughts:

There is 5 weeks left until Survivor Series, so this felt like another filler show.  But I loved the main event, and am sure we will now get a No DQ match between James and AJ, right?  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.

WWE Monday Night Raw 10/17/16…GOOOOLLLDBERG!!!

WWE Monday Night Raw, Live From Denver, Colorado

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Commentators:  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves

Video:  Goldberg Returns Tonight!!

Tonight:  Lita’s Exclusive Interview with Charlotte and Sasha Banks.

Segment Number One:  Promo with Jeri-KO, and Seth Rollins

Y2J chants get started, but Kevin has something to say.  At this point, there is no denying anymore, Mick Foley has a vendetta against him.  Why else would he shorten his carrer defending his WWE Universal Championship against a man who doesn’t deserve a title shot.  Jericho tells us to be quiet, and he agrees that Foley has a vendetta against both men.  Being in a Hell in a Cell match is the most barbaric, destructive match in WWE history.  And to prove that Owens is in the same match that ended Foley’s career proves he is a stupid idiot.  Owens has more brain cells than Mick Foley does.  He is a thinking man’s champion, and will make sure he continues his career, and proving that he is a smarter man than Seth Rollins.  And after its said and done, it will still be The Kevin Owens Show for years to come.

Chris believes it should be Chris and Kevin show, and Chris should have been put in this match.  He can beat Seth Rollins, and look at the list of legends Chris has beaten.  Shawn Michaels to Rey Mysterio.  He beat Stone Cold and The Rock on the same night.  He beat The Undertaker for the World Title in this ring.  You can surely think he can beat Seth Rollins.  And only reason why he isn’t is because of that horrible referee.  HE’S ON THE LIST!!  At Hell in a Cell, Seth Rollins will have a swan song.  Because he has already replaced him as “The Man”, and in two weeks, Owens will retire Rollins.

And on cue, here is Rollins.  You know Chris, if you want to put something on that list, put that scarf on there.  How about those weird tattoos, goofy looking mustache, and sparkle crotch.  Chris is not sparkle crotch.  Seth just been put on the list.  If he should put something on there, he needs to put his friendship with Kevin Owens.  After all, he was pedigreed twice in a row in front of Kevin.  Chris and Kevin are still very good friends, and have talked about it last few weeks.  One of them needs to stay strong.  So, Owens stays strong, and Chris stays weak?  Chris is a 6-time World Heavyweight Champion, he is the best in the world at what he does.  You want to say why it says GOAT on his trunks?  It should say sprinkle crouch.  Jericho can beat Rollins any day of the week, and Seth thinks now is the time to do it.  But where is Kevin going to be at?  Will he just watch Chris get pedigreed again?  Chris tells us Kevin is leaving.  Owens doesn’t agree with this, and Chris tells him he needs to leave.  He knows all of the tricks, and it doesn’t change Owens is his best friend.  But he has to show the world, and this idiot who he is.  Chris Jericho, dammit.

Match Number 1:  Seth Rollins Vs Chris Jericho

Great match between the two, and we saw Owens come back out.  Jericho did have the Walls on Rollins, but Owens grabbed the ropes away from Rollins, the ref saw it, made Chris break it up.  Pedigree, pins Jericho.

Winner:  Seth Rollins (Via Pinfall)

Video:  Goldberg’s WCW debut

Tonight:  Goldberg Returns

Segment Number 3:  Lita’s interview with Charlotte

Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, HHH, and Mick Foley.  These are legends first appeared inside Hell in a Cell.  How do they feel about being the first two women to go inside Hell in a Cell.  She is a winner, always has been.  Did Charlotte take advantage of Sasha Banks at Summerslam?  Charlotte has had 12 straight PPV wins, and she is durable.  Forbes Magazine has called her the best Women’s Wrestler, she may even be the best performer, period.  Charlotte is genetically superior, it is in her blood.  Sasha needs the WWE Universe, she does not.  Sasha needs her hometown fans, she may not be 100%.  But Charlotte will, she has proven that.  At Hell in a Cell, she will prove she is better than Sasha.  Nobody will stop her.

Tonight:  Lita talks with Sasha

Match Number 2:  The Golden Truth and Mark Henry Vs The Shining Stars and Titus O’ Neil

World’s Strongest Slam, Mark Henry takes care of Titus O’ Neil, while The Shining Stars watch this.

Winners:  The Golden Truth and Mark Henry.

Next:  Big E Vs Sheamus

Segment Number 5:  Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens backstage

Jericho is upset Owens came down to the ring, he did it as a friend.  Foley wants to add some tension, so he can have his back.  Jericho told Owens not to come down, you stu….Owens tells Chris not to call him a stupid idiot, he is not just an idiot.  He is the WWE Universal Champion.  Chris is a 6-time World Champion….Stephanie McMahon interrupts them, and says they need to stay focused for Hell in a Cell.  Her brother made that challenge at Survivor Series, and she needs her two generals to get along.

Match Number 3:  Big E Vs Sheamus

Cesaro is on Facebook Live, Sheamus tells Cesaro, and the world he will use the Brogue Kick, but is rolled up by Big E. for the win.  These two teams face off in 13 days at Hell in a Cell.

Winner:  Big E. (Via Pinfall)

Tonight:  Goldberg Returns

Earlier Tonight:  Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel

Match Number 4:  Bo Dallas Vs Neville

Winner:  Bo Dallas (Via Pinfall)

Next:  Dana Brooke Vs Bayley

Match Number 5:  Dana Brooke Vs Bayley

The story of this match was Dana physically punishing Bayley, and focusing on her head.  She banged Bayley’s head on the ring apron, and picks up the win.

Winner:  Dana Brooke (Via Pinfall)

Segment Number 9:  Paul Heyman

Paul is live, via satellite at WWE Studios.  Cole asked Heyman if he believes Goldberg will accept Brock’s challenge, later tonight.  Heyman knows that Goldberg will fly out here, to accept the challenge.  But Bill, Brock doesn’t even think about you anymore.  It’s a video game, Bill.  So Heyman suggests Bill just says no.  Because if he does say yes, it will piss Brock off.  Goldberg beat him 12 years ago, and Goldberg thinks he can do it again.  The WWE Universe will chant Goldberg’s name, and we hear Goldberg chants.  Paul says that will piss off Brock too.  He will be victimized, and beat down, not be the hero in the video game you think, by Brock Lesnar.

Tonight:  Lana and Rusev has a message for Reigns

Match Number 6:  Braun Strowman Vs The Mile High Trio

I love that name Corey Graves used, so we will go with it.  A 3-on-1 Handicap match, with Braun winning with a reverse Chokeslam.  Braun demands more competition, he is going to the back and take matters into his own hand.  Here comes Sami Zayn.  Braun shoves Sami outside of the ring.  Sami wants some.

Next:  Rusev and Lana

Segment Number 11:  Sami Zayn

Charly Caruso has a moment with Sami.  Why did he challenge Braun?  Because nobody else will.

Segment Number 12:  Lana and Rusev

Rusev trimmed his beard a bit.  In 13 days time, he has an opportunity to crush Roman Reigns’ dreams, shut up with your USA Chants.  Rusev wants Lana to speak.  Her husband is not just the greatest United States Champion of all time, but as his wife, she knows he is an incredible family man, unlike us weak Americans.  Roman Reigns wants to talk about being a family man, good for you.  We know you have 9 Samoans, sitting around campfires, dipping their chicken with mayonnaise, and following everything that he does.  They put coconuts on their head, they say stupid things.  His family is civilized.  Let’s meet The Rusevs.

Video:  The Rusevs

Mama Rusev is a world-class rowing champion.  She is a strong, beautiful woman.  Lana is proud to call her Mother-in-Law.  Don’t boo Mama Rusev.  Now, its Papa Rusev.  He served in the military, and was a wrestling champion.  Now it’s brother Rusev, the best chef in all of Bulgaria.  Now it’s Grandma Rusev, who he calls Babucha.  And we even have his family dog Miguenta, who has won dog shows all over the world.  We have cousins, who play football.

Roman Reigns comes out.  Rusev was right about one thing, Roman does have a big family, but not bloodline, he’s talking about The Roman Empire.  He doesn’t look like his handsome father, he looks like the dog.  Rusev says he can disrespect anyone from his family, don’t disrespect him.  Who is he going to call?  Because in 13 days, they will be locked inside Hell in a Cell, and the only call he will make is 911.  Lana slaps him, and Rusev kicks Reigns.  Reigns takes care of Reigns, and crushes him on top of steel steps, and now Accolade on Reigns.

Match Number 7:  Karl Anderson Vs Big Cass

Big Cass wins in quick fashion, hitting Sidewalk Slam, picking up the win.  How ya doin’?

Winner:  Big Cass (Via Pinfall)

Segment Number 15:  Sasha Banks

She’s been ready, they started together in NXT.  And from NXT to now, they are making history, and she does have respect for her.  But she will show she is the best.  This is real, 13 days, first two women inside Hell in a Cell.  Her back is doing well, she proved she is the woman’s champion.  Is she afraid?  Sasha knows what she got herself.  But she is trying to prepare herself for this night, and in 2 weeks, she will be making history.

Hell in a Cell is shaping up to be a good show, but what about next week?  Mick offers a triple threat main event if Seth Rollins Vs Chris Jericho Vs Kevin Owens.

Videos:  From last two weeks.

Segment Number 18:  Goldberg

Michael Cole introduces us to the man.  Michael leaves, Goldberg is touched by his return, thanking the fans for remembering him.  Michael walks away, and gives Goldberg the floor.  12 years ladies and gentlemen.  You never say never.  So thank you for the humble return.  What makes this so special is his wife and his son get to see him live, for the first time.  Back in January, 2K and WWE asked him to come back.  He went on a tour to Germany, met some kids, and looked at him as Goldberg, a true superhero.  He had some trouble in WWE, so he thought maybe he should just leave it alone?  But then Brock challenged him to a fight.  But he used that big, fat stooge Paul Heyman to do it for him.  So what would you do?  Maybe he has one last ass kicking left in him.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

It was great to see Goldberg back tonight, and am curious to see where we go from here.  The match takes place at Survivor Series.  Next week, Brock Lesnar returns, live in Minneapolis.  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.

WWE Smackdown Live 10/11/16…No Mercy Fallout

WWE Smackdown Live, from San Jose, California

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Commentators:  Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga

Segment Number 1:  Promo with new IC Champ, Dolph Ziggler.

The weeks leading into No Mercy, Ziggler put his career on the line, and he gave himself one way out…win.  And he didn’t know at No Mercy, walking in if that was the last time he’d see the fans.  The last time he was going to tape his wrists, the last time he’d sit in the back, and devise a gameplan.  The last time he was going to spray tan Zack Ryder’s back.  The last time he would walk into this ring.  For the first time in 12 years, he doubted himself and thought he made a mistake.  He had people approach him and say he didn’t have to do this, but he needed to do it.  He knew that moment he set foot in this ring, he knew this is where he belonged.  And he knew no matter what, The Miz, Maryse, The Spirit Squad, Kerwin White’s caddy, he would walk out as our Intercontinental Champion.  And dammit, they did it.

AWWWWESSOME!!  Here comes The Miz and Maryse.  They are both dressed in black, as if they are at a funeral.  They bow their heads down, for a moment of silence.

The Miz wants to take a moment to mourn the death of the Intercontinental Championship, because no matter how much Daniel Bryan held him back, for 188 days, The Miz was the one who brought back the prestige back to the title.  Not him, not you, not the fans, The Miz was the one.  Your victory is a funeral for the IC Title’s death, because if the mediocrity of Ziggler.  But if you think this is over, this is just act 2, where the hero needs to overcome all odds.  Miz is that hero.  It’s The Empire Strikes Back, because the movies all end the same.  The hero gets the gold, and the girl.  He already has the girl.  He wants the gold.

Ziggler was going to share something with the crowd, and he’s glad Miz is out here, so roll the footage.

Video:  The Miz crying

Was he just crying?  Is Miz about to cry right now?  Miz asks if this is funny, that face is everything he worked for, everything that was sacrificed, and he takes that very seriously.  Miz takes this very, very seriously, and if he thinks for one second that he did so much to keep it, imagine how much he can do to get it back.  Miz isn’t done with Ziggler, and neither are they.

The Spirit Squad.  They tell Ziggler they must face them in a handicap match.  You want some of this, you got some of this.

Match Number 1:  Dolph Ziggler (IC Champion) Vs The Spirit Squad.  (Non-Title Match)

Ziggler defeated both men, with a Superkick, pinning Kenny.  The Miz lays Ziggler out with a Skull Crushing Finale.  Here comes Beauty and the Man-Beast to even the odds.

Winner:  Dolph Ziggler (IC Champion) Via Pinfall.

Winner:  Naomi (Via Pinfall)

Segment Number 8:  AJ Styles (WWE World Champion)

The Champ is Here!!  AJ beat Dean Ambrose AND John Cena, at the same time at No Mercy.  That isn’t just great, its phenomenal.  We live vicariously through AJ, but there is only room for one in this bandwagon.  So go cheer for John Cena.  Wait, he’s trying to be Kelly Ripa’s co-host.  But then again, you can cheer for Dean Ambrose.  You all are pathetic, but enough about you, let’s talk about AJ.  He beat John Cena.  He beat Dean Ambrose.  Some may not like how he did it, but one thing about AJ Styles is he does whatever it takes to win.  Did he say he beat John Cena and Dean Ambrose?  its so nice, let him say it twice, he beat John Cena, and Dean Ambrose.  Now some may take a year off after doing that, but he is about giving opportunities.  So come on out, and he will make them main event material.

Here comes Dean Ambrose.  Dean had AJ beat, but he had to take it the easy way out.  AJ reminds Dean you can’t win when two people make you tap.  Dean wants to remind him nobody on the roster will top him.  AJ says this isn’t a person currently on the roster, so come on out…..James Ellsworth.  The legend.  He had a chance to be AJ’s tag team partner a month ago, but The Miz beat him to a pulp, so now tonight, he gets his chance.  Non-title match, of course.  So scram Dean.

Dean wants to see this match, and here comes Daniel Bryan.  AJ may be the WWE World Champion, and he may be the Champ Who Runs This Camp, but Daniel runs Smackdown Live.  But he likes James Ellsworth, and makes the match official.  And Dean, AJ is right, you can’t be here, unless you’re the special guest ref.

Match Number 4:  AJ Styles (WWE World Champion) Vs James Ellsworth, with Dean Ambrose as special guest ref.

James Ellsworth wind the match, with some assistance from Dean Ambrose, with 2 Dirty Deeds, after AJ hits a Styles Clash.  Like I said, James is a legend.

Moments Ago:  James Ellsworth defeated AJ Styles.

Segment Number 11:  AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, and Shane McMahon

AJ is irate at everything that just took place, and was starting to take blame on Daniel.  But Shane doesn’t want to hear that, saying it’s official James Ellerton defeated AJ Styles.  He walks out, and Daniel says he has an idea for next week with James.

Match Number 5:  Randy Orton and Kane Vs Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper

Bray and Luke pick up the win, when the lights go out, and Luke is on the other side.  Kane disappears, and we don’t know where he is.  Bray hits Sister Abigail, and pins Orton.  We end the show with Bray laughing, and celebrating.

Winners:  Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper (Via Pinfall)

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Just an average show really, no big build to Survivor Series, since we are still 20 days away from Hell in a Cell.  For some reason, I loved James Ellerton beating AJ though.  The dude has some great facial expressions.  But nothing else was very good.  Share your thoughts here with me,

WWE Monday Night Raw, Live from Oakland, California

Monday, October 10th, 2016

Commentators:  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, Corey Graves

Segment 1:  Promo with Sasha Banks, Charlotte, Rusev, and Roman Reigns.

The new WWE Women’s Champion, “The Boss” Sasha Banks comes out.  Sasha feels like she is on top of the world.  It wasn’t long she was sitting at the top of the row out there.  And she was a little girl watching Raw at home.  She would watch her hero, Eddie Guerrero, lie, cheat, and steal our hearts in the WWE.  She would watch women like Trish Stratus and Lita tearing it up as the main event, and she dreamt about doing that.  Last week her dream came true.  She was in the main event, and became a 2-time Raw’s Women’s Champion.  Charlotte has a rematch at Hell in a Cell, so Sasha suggests they up the ante, and put this inside Hell in a Cell, and make history.

Enter Charlotte.  Now comes Rusev and Lana.  Nobody cares about your stupid women’s revolution.  And nobody cares that they made the main event last week, because Rusev is the main event every time he is in the ring.  Charlotte interrupts, and says nobody disrespect The Queen, that is the Women’s Championship, and Sasha might be the champion, she is still “The Queen”.  And if Sasha wants to be inside Hell in a Cell?  You’re on.  Good for you says Rusev, but nobody cares.  Sasha takes the mic, and Lana snatches it back.  She says they are about the women’s revolution, they need to realize Hell in a Cell is built for men.  Sasha dropkicks Lana, and we see Charlotte and Sasha take out Rusev.  But here comes Reigns.

What will Mick Foley say about Charlotte Vs Sasha inside Hell in a Cell?

Mick is wearing an incredible suit in the ring.  3 weeks from now, it’s Hell in a Cell.  And to tell you all about it right here, in Oakland, California.  Reigns Vs Rusev, for the United States Championship, inside Hell in a Cell.  Charlotte and Sasha made history last week, and they want to be in a Hell in a Cell match.  But women don’t always get what they want….they get what they deserve.  Last week’s title match was incredible, and they will get that Hell in a Cell match, because they deserve it.  Seth Rollins wants his Universal Title shot, and Seth wants it to be fair game.  So Seth gets that title shot, inside Hell in a Cell.  3 Hell in a Cell matches.

Enter Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho.  Congratulations Mick, you have done yourself this week, because that is the stupidest decision Mick made yet.  Kevin doesn’t want to be in a Hell of a Cell match.  Because he wants to have a long career, and not a washed-up GM.  He is the Universal Champion.  So Chris asks if Mick grants everyone what they want.  If they request a private jet that says Team Chris and Kevin.  Jericho tells Foley he has never liked him since they met, and he’s putting his champ at risk, he is putting Owens in jeopardy, because it can end his career, like Mick’s did.  Yes, he is.  Foley is now on THE LIST!!  Jericho asks Stephanie to take care of this guy, and Steph tells him he needs to show respect.  Seth Rollins deserves this match, and he wants a piece of Chris Jericho too.  Chris said he’d like to face that stupid idiot too.  So, tonight it will be Jericho Vs Rollins.  But Stephanie has a decision to make, after seeing No Mercy last night, and seeing Triple Threat match for the WWE World Title.  So she suggests if Jericho wins tonight, he’s added to Hell in a Cell main event to a Triple Threat match.

Segment Number 8:  Seth Rollins

Charlie Caruso is backstage with Seth, and he wants thoughts from him.  Seth is good with this, but he is going to end that plan Stephanie has by defeating Chris Jericho tonight.  Then, he gets Owens one on one inside Hell in a Cell.  But the question is how does Owens feel about this?

Segment Number 14:  T.J. Perkins and Brian Kendrick

T.J. wants to talk with Brian, he knows the real Brian Kendrick.  He is afraid because this is his last chance.  Brian reminded T.J. he beat him last week, and T.J. said he cheated to win, and he’s better than that.  These two have history together.  Brian drove him to his matches when he was too young to drive.  Brian bought him a Nintendo 64 when it broke.  It’s not too late to be the real Brian Kendrick.  He offers a handshake, but Brian tries to attack him from behind, but T.J. counters that.

Match Number 7:  Braun Strowman Vs The Splash Brothers, Steven and Clay Splash.

Oh boy.  Braun takes care of the Splash Brothers, like Kyrie Irving hitting a clutch 3, over Steph’s head.  Byron tries to say something, but Braun wants real competition.  This is a warning to Foley, give Braun some real competition, or whatever happens will be on Foley’s hand.

Backstage Segment:  Jeri-KO

“Phil” wants to hear thoughts from Kevin Owens facing Seth Rollins, and possibly Jericho.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a singles match, or a Triple Threat match, Owens is walking out of Hell in a Cell as WWE Universal Champion.  Jericho says if one is champion, the team is champion.  Why didn’t Owens help out Jericho last week?  They talked about this earlier, if one is laid out, the other has to stay healthy.  Now get out of here.  “Phillip” doesn’t leave, SO HE JUST MADE THE LIST!!

Next:  Paul Heyman

Video:  Goldberg From ESPN

Segment Number 19:  Paul Heyman

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and I am the advocate of The Beats who adorns the cover of WWE2K17, BROCK LESNAR!!  For this he offers us this most newsworthy preview.

Video:  Preview of WWE2K17

For 12 years, everyone in the WWE Universe keeps on asking what if we could experience that dominance, even for one more night.  What if there is one more spear, what if there is one more Jackhammer.  Even for just one more night, we could experience Goldberg.  Think about it, everytime a new bad ass would come to WWE, get in the ring, we’d hear those chants of GOLD-BERG!!  He has victimized opponents, he has beaten everyone.  And you think for a moment, Goldberg’s career was running along the same lines of his client, Brock Lesnar.  And I think Goldberg is still one up on Brock Lesnar.  Which is why he is allowed to do this, on behalf of his client, Goldberg, you sir are officially challenged to go one on one with his client, Brock Lesnar.  BEAST VS MYTH.  One more time, Brock Lesnar Vs GOOOOOOLD-BERG!!  Bill Goldberg, you can listen to the WWE audience, and you can live in the fantasy of WWE2K17, where you can live in the world of being the one blemish in Brock Lesnar’s WWE career.  Because in Suplex City, you’re not Goldberg,,,,YOU’RE NEXT.

Segment Number 21:  Backstage Segment with Chris Jericho and Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie wishes Jericho luck in his match tonight.  Chris almost wrote her name on the list.  Stephanie tells him that if they get Triple Threat match at Hell in a Cell, it will outdo No Mercy.  And when you get in the cell, and you say you’re as close to Kevin as you say, you know what to do.  Kevin wants to know what that was about, Jericho said it’s about friendship.

Video:  Hispanic Heritage Month, Tito Santana.

Next week:  Goldberg will be live on Raw.

Match Number 10:  Chris Jericho Vs Seth Rollins.

Seth Rollins wins an amazing match with a roll up.  Kevin Owens had come out earlier, so when the match was over with, he came out and beat down Rollins.  Jericho helps, but Seth turns the corner, and hits a Pedigree, with the WWE Universal Champion looking from the outside, walking away from his “buddy”.  The show ends with champion and challenger looking at each other.

Winner:  Seth Rollins (Via Pinfall)

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The story of this night is the return of Goldberg.  You could miss the first 2 hours of the show, and tune in to the best part, which was Heyman, and the main event.  Everything else just didn’t do much for me, in fact, I watched this on DVR, it took me 2 days to get through the entire episode.  Way too many matches, and nothing really stood out for me, except the main event.  Share me your thoughts.

Video:  Dolphumentary

This video is all about Dolph Ziggler’s failures.  WWE:  24 Presents The Success of a Failure, this Sunday at No Mercy.  If Miz’s career is half as bad as Ziggler’s he would have left a long time ago.  I haven’t gone yet ass face, say another thing, and I will knock you out.  For every 10 bad things that happen, any time Ziggler sees a little kid wearing his shirt saying he is his hero, Ziggler says he is his hero.  Or every Make-A-Wish Foundation, a kid says Ziggler is his hero, he says to that kid he is his hero.  That is real, and the night after he won the World Heavyweight Title, the fans went nuts, and he still has goosebumps when he thinks about it.  But that is why this Sunday, he will win the IC Title, and keep his career.  And for all the good rides he has had, and great moments he has had in his career, he is not done yet.  Yes you are, you want to talk about those moments, say goodbye to them.  And they will end because of The Miz.  But he has just the thing to raise his spirits.

Kenny Dykstra and Mike Mondo from The Spirit Squad.  They give us a cheer for Ziggler.  And Miz said they could find only two of them, but Ziggler can join the Spirit Squad, and Ziggler asks if he wants to go right now, and we see Spirit Squad turn on him.  But Ziggler hits both Mikey and Kenny Superkicks.  And Ziggler goes after Miz, but the IC Champion slides out of the ring.  This Sunday, Career Vs IC Title.  Ziggler Vs The Miz.

Winner:  Jack Swagger (By Submission)

Next:  Face Off with Cena, Styles, and Ambrose

Segmenr Number 14:  John Cena, AJ Styles, and Dean Ambrose

The WWE World Champion AJ Styles comes out.  He says Smackdown is the land of opportunity, and he agress.  He went to Summerslam, and beat John Cena to become the face that runs this place.  Then he went to Backlash, and he beat Dean Ambrose to become the new WWE World Champion.  Now he has a chance to beat Dean Ambrose and John Cena at the same time, at No Mercy.  But here comes Dean.  Dean calls AJ a chump, because of what he did, took the low road.  He had a 15-year career, won every title he could, and he did that.  But he’s not even mad at that.  He’s mad because Dean had AJ beat for 20 seconds last week, and John Cena had to come out, and ruin that.  Cena should be thanking him for bringing the WWE World Championship to Smackdown.  Cena comes out to this, and before he can say anything, Styles cuts him off.  AJ knows what John is going to say, he is chasing history.  But he’s not even in the same class as legendary Ric Flair.  No matter what happens, Cena isn’t even in the same class as Flair.  But he wouldn’t be worried about Ric Flair.  He needs to be focused on AJ Styles, he doesn’t chase history, he makes history.  Cena starts to say something, but Dean cuts him off.  He already knows what Cena will say, so let’s hear it.  Cena will say he didn’t cost Ambrose the title, Ambrose just got screwed.  So the spin will be spun, he can run office.  Cena undermines the young guys he sees as a threat.  He won’t do that, because Ambrose sees right through him.  You want to talk about loyalty?  While Cena takes off in lear jets, Dean is working in the ring, 0 work days with blood, sweat, and tears.  Mr. Respect, he won’t respect Cena because he sees right through him.  He’ll just watch Cena play John Cena on television.

Talk is cheap as Cena said, and the two men fight.  He hits an AA  on Ambrose, and Styles comes with a Phenomenal Forearm, and he tells us he is the WWE World Champion, Ambrose comes in, nails Dirty Deeds on the ramp, and this ends the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This just wasn’t a good show, the matches were crappy, only saving grace were the two promos with Styles-Ambrose-Cena, and The Miz and Ziggler segment.

Matches were very short, and crappy, even with Swagger Vs Corbin match being the best of the night, such a shitty ending to it.  Share me your thoughts?  You agree?  Disagree??

Kane def. Bray Wyatt (By Countout)

Nikki Bella def Alexa Bliss (By DQ)

Alexa Bliss and Carmella def Nikki Bella and Becky Lynch

The Hype Bros def. The Vaudevillains

The WWE World Champion comes out with his best buddy, Chris Jericho.  Owens just watched that interview Seth Rollins had with Cole, and what he got from it is if Rollins was smart, he’d get some rest from those bruised ribs the doctor told him to do, but he is a stupid idiot.  He wants a rematch for the WWE World Title, but what has he done to deserve it?  He lost the match, and he has one person to blame, Kevin Owens.  Because he is standing here with the WWE Universal Championship.  Another question we may have is why Chris Jericho is standing in the ring here?  Jericho answers they are best friends.  That is true, but that’s not why Owens asked him here.  Owens brings up the ref costs Seth the match, so Owens asks Jericho to be the special guest ref, if Seth gets the title rematch.  Jericho agrees to it, but he proposes after winning their big match over Enzo and Cass, they should go after the WWE Tag Team Titles.  Owens agrees they are a great tag team, but he says Cesaro and Sheamus are Number One Contenders, so they wouldn’t get Tag Title shots anyway.  Jericho counters, they can win against New Day, then go after Tag Titles.  Besides, Sheamus and Cesaro aren’t best friends anyway.  Owens says he is busy being WWE Universal Champion, and Jericho brings up it’s not like he is asking for Universal Title shot.  Owens pauses, but agrees to this, and that leads to…..

OHHHHHHH L.A. IT’S TIME TO STAND UP AND CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD FAMOUS 2-TIME WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS….IT’S A NEW DAY, YES IT IS.

They bring up friendship, nobody has friendship like New Day.  Kofi just made the list.  Big E. starts singing, and he suggests they have a champion huddle.  Owens can get involved, but not Jericho.  He’s not a champion.  Jericho confirms Big E. has made the list.  Xavier laughs about this, and he just made the list.  Champion huddle, and Owens talks about how they promote kids to eat questionable things.  They also jumped the shark earlier about 7 months ago.  Xavier answers they don’t swim, and Kevin hasn’t jumped anything in years.  Xavier made the list again.  Xavier accepts their challenge, and says they will never be the WWE Tag Team Champions, because New Day Rocks!!

Next:  The Miz’s Hometown Celebration

Segment Number 9:  The Miz, Maryse, and Dolph Ziggler

Here comes the hometown boy, The Miz, and Maryse.

Video:  The Miz and his WWE career.

Cleveland, Miz is home.  And the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Finals.  1.3 million people lined the streets to celebrate Cleveland’s championship.  And this is all he gets?  Miz is the only hero in Cleveland.  Long before Cleveland was so desperate to win a championship, they welcomed back a traitor, Miz was winning the main event at Wrestlemania.  Miz is proud to celebrate day 173 of the Intercontinental Championship with the only 2 people he cares, his two parent.  Miz’s wife just informed him Dolph Ziggler’s parents are here too.  It must be hard for them, because they raised a world-class elite loser.

Enter Ziggler.  You can say anything about Ziggler, but you never talk like that to his parents, you never say that to his city.  If you have something to say, say it to his face.  Miz already said it when he defeated Ziggler.  It was a tainted victory, and Miz says it’s all in the record book.  Miz is a winner, and Ziggler is a loser.  He was almost at the top, but he keeps losing.  He’s like the opening act.  His career makes Miz sick.  His parents should be embarrassed, his friends should be embarrassed, but all he does is lose.  What can he do next?  Nothing else matters, Ziggler has nothing.  So unless Dolph ends his career, he has nothing left for him.  Miz is going to Hollywood, see ya around kid.  Miz starts to leave, but Ziggler tells Mike to wait.  He is right, this ring is everything Ziggler has.  This is what he loves, but sometimes things you love doesn’t always love you back.  You get nothing in return.  You have fans, friends, asking him why he still subjects this to his life?  It’s because he can’t stop.  Maybe his career didn’t turn out better, he thought he’d be a bigger star, but he just can’t stop himself.  But Miz, he puts that title up one more time.  You put that title up one more time.  Put that title up one more time, and Ziggler will put up his entire career.  Miz wants to make sure he means this, not that he takes a break.  He is done because of Ziggler.  Your title, or my career.  I either wind up champion, or he is done.  Either way, he is out of his mercy.  Miz’s title, or Ziggler’s career.  And if he can’t hang up his career, Miz will do it himself.

Tonight:  Dean Ambrose Vs AJ Styles (WWE World Championship Match)

Segment Number 10:  Bray Wyatt

When one door closes, another one opens Randy.  The door is open Randy, and he looks at him like a mouse in a maze.  Not sure which way to go.  And he laughs.

Match Number 3:  Becky Lynch Vs ??

The match never takes place, because Alyssa Bliss attacks her, and says she doesn’t deserve the Women’s Championship, because Alyssa does.

Winner:  No Contest

Tonight:  AJ Styles Vs Dean Ambrose (WWE World Championship Match)

Video:  Curt Hawkins

Curt is making a big announcement next week.

Segment Number 12:  Bray Wyatt

Bray is disappointed of Randy, he thought he was worthy of his appearance.  Someone worthy of having intelligence, but he was wrong.  The Viper has no venom.  Randy is taking all of the fun out of his little game.  Where are you Randy?  Where is the great predator he was hoping to see.  Someone wearing a sheep mask appears behind Bray.  It’s Orton.  The two men fight, with Randy laughing, and Bray running away.  I’ve got the whole world in my hands.  I’ve got the whole world in my hands.

Segment Number 13:  backstage Interview with AJ Styles

Charly is back, recapping what Ambrose and Cena said.  This is AJ Styles defending the WWE World Championship.  Recap of what happened, AJ beat up John Cena, then he beat John Cena.  Then AJ beat up Dean Ambrose, then he beat Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Title.  What we will hear at the end of the night is the ring announcer say the winner of the match, and still WWE World Heavyweight Champion, “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles.

Match Number 4:  (WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match) AJ Styles Vs Dean Ambrose.

John Cena joins the crew.  What a great match here, Cena cost Ambrose the title when AJ started the shove on Cena.  John popped his head to the inside, distracted the ref for a moment, AJ rolls up Ambrose, with some help holding his pants, and win the match.  Ambrose gets right into Cena’s face, and Cena hits an Attitude Adjustment, on both AJ and Ambrose to close the show.

Winner:  And Still (WWE World Champion) AJ Styles.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The second hour of the show picked up some steam.  We had a terrific promo from The Miz and Ziggler, setting up their big match at No Mercy.  I am fine with Ziggler winning too, as long as Miz is elevated too, because he is such a big star now.  World Title match too was fantastic, and a great way to make it clear John Cena is in this match too.  I even enjoyed Orton and Bray tonight.  Disappointed not much from Becky though.  What was your thoughts on tonight?  Send them here, and remember to follow me over at Foreverrebuilding.com and check out work there for the Cleveland sports scene, including my reports and Smackdown Vs Raw that comes out every week.

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/25/16…The Buddy System

Match Number One:  Roman Reigns Vs Rusev (US Title Match)

We begin the night with a match, it will be Reigns Vs Rusev, with Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcoming us to the show.  A very good match, even with a crappy ending.  There was a double count out, as both men are sent through the crowd.  Lana tried to interfere, but Reigns prevented that.  Reigns tries a Superman Punch, but is met by a steel chair by Rusev.  But Reigns nails a spear, when Rusev sent him back to the ring, and was going to swing a chair.

Winner:  Double Countout (Reigns is still US Champion)

Tonight, another rematch from Clash of Champions, New Day Vs Gallows and Anderson.  WWE Tag Team Title match is on the line.  We get another commercial from WWE2K17, coming out in 2 weeks.  Mick Foley is on his way out, to address Sheamus Vs Cesaro, next.

Segment 2:  Promo- Mick Foley, Sheamus, and Cesaro

Last night, Cesaro Vs Sheamus was ruled a no contest.  They culminated their epic match, which ended in a draw.  So Mick asks for both men to come out here.  Sheamus is all taped up, coming to the ring.  And here comes Cesaro.  As Mick starts to speak, Sheamus interrupts.  He brings up Mick stated whoever would be the most dominant after the 7 matches would get a championship opportunity.  If that wasn’t Sheamus, he doesn’t know what Foley was watching.  Cesaro remembers something different, asking why Sheamus didn’t come back in the ring?  They argue back and forth, stating both of them are tougher.  Sheamus is better than Cesaro, and Cesaro disagrees.  Mick states they both are right, but he is going to grant both of them championship opportunities.  Not separate opportunities, they will share this moment, competing for Tag Team opportunities.  Both of them hate that, but Mick stated they don’t have to like it, and if they agree with this, they will face the winner of this match….

OHHHHHHHH CINCINNATI, DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR, STAND UP AND CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD FAMOUS 2-TIME WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS.  THERE IS A NEW DAY, YES IT IS.

Match Number 2:  New Day Vs Gallows and Anderson (WWE Tag Team Title Match).

Another great match here.  A bloodied up Kofi Kingston wins for his team, hitting Trouble in Paradise, pinning Karl Anderson.  New Day have been Tag team Champions for 400 days.  It seems they will be facing Sheamus and Cesaro down the road.

Winners (And Still WWE Tag Team Champions):  New Day

The announcers go over Rollins Vs Owens last night at Clash of Champions.  Chad Patten was knocked out, Stephanie McMahon sent out another referee, and Kevin Owens retained his title with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.  From a WWE.com exclusive, Tom Phillips tries to get a word from Stephanie McMahon, and she blows him off, greeting HHH.  Seth Rollins was sent to a Cincinnati facility today, checking a MRI on his ribs.  He is not cleared to compete tonight.  But we get a Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho, and his guest is Kevin Owens.

Segment 4:  Cesaro, Sheamus, and Mick Foley

Cesaro and Sheamus are still bickering, and Mick approaches them both, saying their match last night was fantastic, and if he puts them in a singles match again, he would risk losing them.  He can’t do that, but if you get 2 singles wrestlers together, they can create magic together.  It’s what Mick wants to prove to them, and the world.  The two are amazing.

Match Number 3:  Bayley Vs Anna Fields

Bayley to Belly, hugs for everyone.  Tom Phillips, the dude with the haircut asks Bayley how she feels about losing last night;s title match.  Bayley brings up they are the two best performers in the company, but she is coming back for more.  And she won’t stop until she hugs that Women’s Championship.

Winner of Match:  Bayley

Segment Number 5:  Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley.

Mick calls himself a fool for believing in Stephanie, but when he checked on Cesaro, she came out, sent another referee, when Chris Jericho kept interfering.  Kevin Owens was at the right place at the right time, and pinned Rollins.  Then WWE.com showed an exclusive interview with Steph, and her husband HHH picked her up, and asked how things went.  Steph berates Mick blaming him, because the action got out of hand.  Mick needs to think with his mind, and not heart.  It’s Mick’s responsibility, and if he can’t do it, she has no problem showing him the door.  Mick agreed he dropped the ball on this, and apologized.  Seth Rollins will come here tonight, and go after Owens, so perhaps he needs to look after Seth and make sure he doesn’t do anything stupid.

Coming up next:  Cedrick Alexander and Rich Swann Vs Lince Dorado and Drew Gulak, on Raw.

Match Number 4:  Tag Match-Cedrick Alexander and Rich Swann Vs Lince Droado and Drew Gulak.

Swann and Alexander win the match when Swann hits a kick to the head, and bridges Gulak for the win.  These guys hit some wicked shots here.

Winners:  Cedrick Alexander and Richard Swann

Tonight:  TJ Perkins is in action, Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho.  His guest?  Kevin Owens.  Cesaro and Sheamus are in action, next.

Match Number 5:  Tag Team-Cesaro and Sheamus Vs Nick Cutler and Willis Williams

Winners:  Sheamus and Cesaro

Video Package:  TJ Perkins

Segment Number 8:  Promo with TJ Perkins.

Tom Phillips with TJ Perkins.  This is his Raw debut, and he is ready to prove he belongs here, but The Brian Kendrick shows up.  He wants to see if TJ has what it takes, because the next time they face each other, that Cruiserweight Title is coming back to where to belongs.

Next:  (Women’s Champion) Charlotte and Dana Brooke.

Segment Number 9:  Promo with Charlotte (Women’s Champion and Dana Brooke.

Clash of Champions  was once again Charlotte’s night, and she proved once again she is the Queen of the Women’s Division.  Charlotte beat two of the greatest women in the ring today.  But that is the difference between Charlotte and Bayley, and the difference between herself and Sasha, she backs what she says.  Charlotte also knows she disappointed every single one of us, because we always believe the new challenger will beat her.  But that does not happen.  She isn’t the huggable newcomer, and she isn’t the internet darling….

Here comes Sasha Banks.  Telling Charlotte last night might have been hers, but that title is still coming back to her.  Charlotte didn’t pin Sasha, she wants her one on one rematch, and she wants it tonight.  Charlotte tells her she is the Queen.  But she will give her what we want, and she will give Sasha what she wants, and that is a Women’s Title match….next week.  Because if she didn’t give her a title shot, she would be crying to Mick Foley.  But since every time she knocks her down, Sasha gets right back up.  But Charlotte promises her.  Sasha promises her that when she gets her hands on Charlotte, she will get her title back.  Sasha slaps Charlotte on the face, and gives Dana Brooke a backstabber.  Women’s Title match is issued, next week in Los Angeles.

Tonight:  Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho, with Kevin Owens.  Seth Rollins is here, he is walking.

Segment Number 10:  Seth Rollins and Mick Foley

Mick asks Seth how is he feeling, Seth says he is doing okay.  He will be there at Highlight Reel somehow.  He saw what Stephanie did, leaving the arena with HHH.  Screw the rules Mick, because when he sees him talking, he hears Stephanie’s words coming from his mouth.

Match Number 6:  T.J. Perkins (WWE Cruiserweight Champion) Vs Tony Nese.

It’s official, next week on Raw in Los Angeles, it will be T.J. Perkins Vs The Brian Kendrick.  T.J. Perkins picks up the win, making Tony tap out to his Knee Bar.

Winner:  TJ Perkins (WWE Cruiserweight Champion)

Video:  Hispanic Heritage Month:  Pedro Morales.

Next:  Highlight Reel

Next Week:  Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks, WWE Women’s Championship Match.

Segment Number 12:  Highlight Reel With Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens

Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson will be at Raw, next week.  Quiet!!  Quiet!!  Quiet!!  Be quiet, because tonight is the most anticipated Highlight Reel in WWE history.  But first he wants to address Ashton and Danny, how dare you claim you’re better friends than Chris and Kevin.  If you two want to show up next week on Raw, then Chris will put them on the list.  He also put the camera guy on the list.  Another man on the list, Seth Rollins.  He got hurt, again.  Jericho has been in the WWE for 17 years, and he has never been hurt.  Seth has been here for a year and a half, and he is hurt, again.  But someone who isn’t on the list is his best friend, the WWE Universal Champion, Kevin Owens.

And the Cleveland Indians just won the American League Central Division Title, okay back to wrestling.

Kevin Owens showed last night what a real WWE Champion should be.  Owens usually dresses in a suit, but it’s Cincinnati, and we don’t deserve a suit.  He would never wear a suit for any place that brought us Dean Ambrose.  But let’s move on to business.  Kevin proved last night he should have been the number one pick in the draft.  But he also proved last night, he is THE MAN.  He hurt Seth Rollins, and Seth received some karma.  Because for a year and a half, Seth has said he is THE MAN.  And he was, but he hurt some distinguished people.  Guys like John Cena, “The ICON” Sting, and “The Demon King”  Finn Balor.  Seth might have been the most dangerous man in WWE, but Kevin took him out last night.  You know what that makes him?  The most dangerous man in WWE.  Seth Rollins shows up, but security and Mick Foley are out to stop him.  Kevin told us we are stupid idiots, so don’t give him what we want.  Go sit on your couch Seth.  He leaves, and here comes.

Big Cass and Enzo.  His name is Enzo Amore, he is a certified G, and a bona fide stud, and you can’t teach that.  This guy here is Big Cass, he is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.  Badda Bing, realist guys in the room, HOW YA DOIN’?  Jericho just put tem on the list.  They call Chris Santa Claus, and Jericho said he would come up there, and sit on his lap.  Chris denies it, but he did say it.  But this will lead to.

Match Number 7:  Tag Match, Jericho and Owens Vs Enzo and Big Cass.

A fun match here, especially with Owens trash talking with Enzo.  Jeri-KO wins with a Pop-Up Powerbomb, Owens pins Enzo.  The show ends with the two best friends celebrating their big win, together.

Winners:  Jericho and Owens.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I loved the beginning of the show, but it dragged, again in hour 2.  I enjoyed the main event, so overall, it was a good show.  Not sure if the ratings will reflect on that.  Next week, they are building the show as big.  Now is the time to put the Women’s Title match as the main event next week, especially if Sasha wins.  We will see, and I love the team of Sheamus and Cesaro.  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.

Sheamus isn’t feeling pressure, but Cesaro is one of his toughest opponents ever.  Booker tries to instigate matters, saying Sheamus “dropped the ball”.  No doubt Sheamus has to win tonight.  Sheamus has worn that brass ring before, Cesaro has not.  He will win the match.  Nobody tougher than him, stronger than him, and he proves that tonight.

Perkins wins the match with the Knee Bar Submission, making Kendrick tap.

I think this is Cathy Dennis, she wants to know what this moment is like for TJ.

He tries to say something, but Kendrick shakes his hand, only to give TJ a headbutt.

WWE2K17 will be out in 2 weeks.

We’ll see what happens tomorrow night.

Charlotte calls out Bayley in the locker room, saying she can’t beat her, and she can’t even beat Sasha.

September is Children’s Cancer Awareness Month, and we go tp Conorscure.org, and donate.

WWE Smackdown Live 9/20/16…Cena Vs Ambrose

Tonight, it’s John Cena Vs Dean Ambrose, and The Miz Vs Dolph Ziggler, for the Intercontinental Championship.

Smackdown Live is now.

We are live in Birmingham, Alabama, 3 weeks away from No Mercy.  Daniel Bryan is in the ring.

We have an official contract signing for the Women’s Championship match at No Mercy.  We will keep things civil, this is Smackdown Live, and this is a new era, and that is how it will be.

Becky Lynch comes out first, followed by Alexa Bliss.

Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga welcome us to the show.

Bliss tries to get into Becky’s head, but it isn’t working.  Becky is preparing for a fight.

Becky doesn’t even fit as a champion.  Her role is to succeed, then fail miserably.  She gets back to what she does best, get back up, and fail miserably.  She wasn’t born to win, she is born to be a loser.

Becky agrees, she wasn’t born to be a champion.  She was born to live in a small house in Dublin.  She was born to work at a crappy job, and be miserable.  But she has watched far too much TV, and listened when they said she can achieve anything if she wanted to be, and she wanted to be champion real bad.  She wasn’t born to be a champion, but she has worked hard to get where she is at, and she wants this a whole lot more than she wants it.  And if she thinks Alexa will take this away from Becky, she will rip her head off.

Alexa tells Becky she was always destined to finish second place.  And at No Mercy, she will expose her what she was meant to be, a one hit wonder.

She throws the contract at Becky, and flips the table.  Signs it, and Becky goes right after her.  She signs it, and holds the Smackdown Women’s Title high in the air.

Becky Lynch Vs Alexa Bliss, at No Mercy.

The Usos are in action Vs American Alpha, next.

Backstage is The Miz and Daniel Bryan.

We have a problem, it’s the IC Title defense tonight.  Daniel said we can cancel the match, and The Miz is happy about that.  Daniel said they can cancel the match, and cancel the contract.  He didn’t read the fine print.  But that’s okay, they can cancel the match, and the contract.  But then again, Miz can’t do then what Daniel can’t do.  Is there a problem?

No.

Usos Vs American Alpha is now.

Winner gets Tag Team Title shot against Slater and Rhyno at No Mercy.

The Usos win the match with a Samoan Splash.  A fantastic match here that told the story of The Usos working on the injured knee of Chad Gable.  Chad wanted the tag, but Jason refused, in fear of Chad’s knee, and The Usos took over, and won.

At No Mercy, its Slater and Rhyno Vs The Usos.

Slater and Rhyno are ready for their match.  The Usos confront them, and said they got lucky at Backlash.  They have two options, either hand over their Tag Team Titles right now, or they take out Slater’s knee right now, so he and his 26 ragged ass kids can go back where they came from.

Tonight, its Randy Orton Vs Erick Rowan.

Jack Swagger joins us for Baron Corbin Vs Apollo Crews.

Corbin wins with End of Days, after destroying Crews.

Corbin goes face to face now with Swagger, and walks away.

Dean Ambrose is getting ready for his match with Cena.

Intercontinental Title is on the line tonight, The Miz Vs Ziggler.

Curt Hawkins is telling us more facts.

Naomi and Nikki are getting ready for their match, Charly Caruso asks how they keep this momentum against Carmella and Natalya.

Glowing is to be confident about yourself.  Natalya’s glow is corrupt, but she has an antidote for her.  She is going to make sure she feels the glow.

Carmella wants to make a name for herself, but Nikki isn’t the Nikki Bella she was a year ago.  She is fighting like this is her last match.  Nikki is glow, and Carmella is a bootleg.

Renee Young is with Dolph Ziggler.

Dolph hasn’t had many wins lately, but this is Smackdown Live, and anything can happen.  The Miz is desperate, he wants to cling onto that title, but Dolph is desperate too.  He wasn’t supposed to be a World Champion, but he did.  He wasn’t supposed to be a Kent State Hall of Famer, but he is.  There is only one thing left to do, win the whole damn thing.

Ziggler Vs The Miz, for the IC Title is now.

Miz used the spray Maryse had tried to use earlier, and hit Skull Crushing Finale for the pinfall victory.

A great match between these two.

Tonight, Cena Vs Ambrose, one on one.  But next, it’s Orton Vs Rowan.

RKO…BOOM…Match is done.

The lights go out, come back on, and we see the sheep mask in the ring.

Bray is on the screen.  The Viper strikes again.  They love you, but you and I Randy, we are about to embark of the most unholy of matrimonii.  Till death do us part, Randy.  But Randy is just a man, and Bray is a GOD that will never die.

Run.

Nikki and Naomi Vs Carmella and Natalya, next.

Carmella and Nattie are DQ’d when Carmella rammed Nikki on the barricade a few times.

The match ended as quickly as it began.

AJ Styles is polishing his title.  Charly Caruso interviews Styles.  He doesn’t have a rivalry with Cena and Ambrose, because he beat both of them.  The face who runs this place.  The Champ that runs this place.  He is the WWE World Champion.  All of those says he is superior to any of them.  So why should he face them in a Triple Threat match?  Its simple, that is the best way for him to lose the title.  So this is the best part, he gets to watch Ambrose and Cena beat the crap out of each other, and The Champ will watch it all.

Our main event, Cena vs Ambrose is now.

Ambrose rolls up Cena for the pinfall victory.

AJ Styles came from the crowd, laid both Ambrose and Cena out.

Daniel Bryan was impressed by what AJ did.  But last week, Shane McMahon promised Dean would receive a WWE World Title rematch.  That will happen, next Tuesday on Smackdown Live, in Cleveland.

Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds on Styles.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another great show tonight, beginning to end, everything had a purpose, and they are setting up No Mercy fantastic.

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/19/16…Go Home For The Clash

6 days away from Clash of Champions, we will see how the show is set up.  How will Reigns react from getting screwed by Rusev?

Raw is 20 minutes away.

Last week on Raw, we see what took place with Reigns Vs Owens.

We are live in Memphis, Tennessee, and we get no music intro.  Roman Reigns comes out to the ring.

Reigns starts to talk, and here comes Stephanie McMahon.

She knows he wants a piece of Rusev, but she has a show to run.

Here comes Mick Foley.

Foley chants in Memphis.

They came up with a solution, Foley was in charge last week, and he let things get out of control.  That is on him, so he will put Seth Rollins Vs Rusev, tonight.

That is great, but what does it do for Reigns?  Three weeks ago, he was screwed by her coward husband.  Last week, he was screwed out of Rusev.

Foley tells Reigns in 6 days he will get a United States Title match against Rusev, and Stephanie guarantees it.

But Foley tells Reigns he has every right to not trust Stephanie, because of their past, but she put Mick in charge.  But guys don’t take his word , and they decide to do things in their own way.  He said Reigns and Owens had an incredible match last week, until things got out of hand.  He wants to make things right, because while Stephanie will be good, he can be back on the couch, if they lose the ratings war.  He said he has been in and out of good graces with the company over the years.  He has something to prove.

So tonight, we will have a rematch of Owens Vs Reigns.

The Champ comes out, and disagrees with this.  He needs to get ready for his title match this Sunday.

Stephanie tells Owens this will be a non-title match, but Mick is in charge.

Mick agrees it’s a non-title match, but it will be inside a steel cage, right here in Memphis, Tennessee.

So we kick things off with Rollins Vs Rusev, now.

Stephanie is upset about Mick’s decision to make this a steel cage match.

But Rusev is irate over making this match at Clash of Champions, and tonight’s match.  Rusev says Foley is jealous of the Rusev family, and Mick ignores that, he tells him he has a match this Sunday against Roman Reigns, and tonight’s match with Seth Rollins.

He gets a phone call from Chris Jericho.

Rusev Vs Rollins is now.

Both men were counted in what was a fantastic match.  Rusev tries to give Rollins a Powerbomb onto the floor, but Rollins gets out of it, and gives Rusev a flying body press, on top of the announce table.

We are backstage, Dana Brooke and Charlotte show footage from last week’s Triple Threat match.

Foley changes the match this Sunday for the Women’s Championship to a Triple Threat match between Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks Vs Bayley, the credits Dana for the idea.

Charlotte shoves Dana.

Tonight, steel cage match with Owens Vs Reigns.  We also will see the debut of The Cruiserweight Division.  2 guys we will see in the ring are Brian Kendrick and Cedrick Alexander.

Jericho is with Kevin Owens.  He says Foley never like him, so he is out to get to Owens.

He is rotten, he is abusing his power.  Jericho is going to make a list of every rotten thing Foley has done as GM.  And when he shows him, he is not going to like IT.

Braun Strowman squash is up, against Sin Cara.

Braun took care of Sin Cara, with ease.  Hitting a powerslam.

Bayley is with Sasha Banks, she is looking forward to being in the ring with her this Sunday.  They beat each other last week, but the good news is one of them will be Women’s Champion, but tonight, they will team up and face Charlotte and Dana, and show them how it’s done.

That tag match is next.

Bayley and Sasha vs Charlotte and Dana is now.

Charlotte and Dana win the match with an assist by Dana, and a kick to the face by Charlotte, pinning Bayley.

Tonight, a steel cage match with Kevin Owens Vs Roman Reigns.  We see Seth Rollins enter Stephanie’s office.

Tomorrow night on Smackdown Live, a double main event with Cena Vs Ambrose, and Miz Vs Ziggler, for the IC Title.

Players from the Memphis Grizzlies are here.

Rollins is in Stephanie’s office, and they had some good times here.  So why did she throw it away for Kevin Owens?

Stephanie still denies anything to do with that.  But maybe Kevin was right, he is responsible for the WWE World Championship being on Smackdown.  Maybe it’s because he lost the title to Finn Balor, maybe.  HHH chose him from The Shield, and he has embarrassed him, maybe.

Seth knows Stephanie was behind this, with her husband, and maybe they made the wrong decision, and when Rollins beats Owens at Clash of Champions, they will crawl on their knees, and ask for forgiveness.  But then again, maybe he will be their worst nightmare.

Stephanie again denies anything, but she admits they were wrong in Seth. She thinks Kevin Owens is the right choice for WWE Universal Champion, and now Kevin is THE MAN.

Seth says Steph used to be a shrewd businesswoman, but she has changed.  And he thinks it started when her brother Shane came back.

Another squash for Bo Dallas, hitting Roll The Dice.

Sick of these squash matches.

Cesaro Vs Sheamus, match 6 of best of 7 series is next.

Video on our new Cruiserweight Champion, TJ Perkins.

The Cruiserweights Arrive on Raw, tonight.

Cesaro Vs Sheamus, match 6 is up now.

The series is tied at 3-3, with Cesaro hitting a Neutralizer, winning the match.

Foley is on the phone, making it official, match 7 is at Clash of Champions.

Jericho is with Foley.  Jericho is making the list of Jericho, with what Foley has done poorly as a GM.

Foley calls him a stupid idiot, and tells Chris he looks stupid with this scarf, right here in Memphis.

Jericho will now have to tell the world what is on the list of Jericho.

The List of Jericho is on The Highlight Reel.

For the last 2 months, Mick Foley has done a terrible job as GM, and we all know it.  He has screwed with Chris, he has screwed with his best friend Kevin Owens, and we will hear the list now.

  1.  He has tried to develop a fringe between his best friend and himself, Kevin Owens, but it won’t happen.
  1.   He has horrible fashion senses.

  2.   He has a liking for that psychedelic Sami Zayn, and he will take care of him next week at Clash of Champions.

Here comes Enzo and Cass.

Enzo and Cass have an issue with Jericho calling Owens his best friend, because a best friend wouldn’t make him wear that horrible scarf.  When they think of best friends, they think of Enzo and Cass, Bart and Millhouse, Burt and Ernie, Ashton and Justin.

Jericho said half of those people don’t even exist, and they bring up Ashton?  What is this, 1998?

Here come The Shining Stars.

They talk about how everyone needs to relax, and they can do that by traveling to Caribbean.

OHHHHHHHH MEMPHIS, ITS TIME TO STAND UP, AND CLAP YOUR HANDS TOGETHER FOR YOU WORLD FAMOUS 2-TIME WWE WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, AND IT’S A NEW DAY, YES IT IS!!

The new Day come out, and share their thoughts on this, and here comes Anderson and Gallows.

They say its stupid to hear them talk about their cereal, which is why they will take their Tag Titles at Clash of Champions.

Jericho calls them all stupid idiots, and says they all made the list of Jericho, and here comes Sami Zayn.  Now all 11 men are fighting each other when we go to a break.

10-man tag match is now.

The team of Enzo, Cass, Sami, and New Day win with a Helluva Kick, and a Badda Boom Shaka Lacka, winning the match.

Earlier tonight, we see where Foley made the match official for United States Championship at Clash of Champions.  And tonight, steel cage match between Reigns Vs Owens.

More Cruiswerweight video with Richard Swann and Grand Metalik.

The Cruiserweights Arrive, next.

September is Hispanic Heritage Month, and we look back at the late, great Eddie Guerrero.

Mick Foley is here, again.

He is here to introduce the Cruiserweights.

4 competitors are here now.  Rich Swann, Grand Metalik, Cedrick Alexander, and The Brian Kendrick.

Mick tells us every title will be defended at Clash of Champions, and that includes the new Cruiserweight Title.  The winner of this Fatal 4-Way match will face TJ Perkins at the PPV.

That match is next.

The Brian Kendrick wins the match, making Cedrick tap out to Captain’s Hook, a Crossface submission hold.

Kendrick Vs Perkins is set at Clash of Champions, for the Cruiserweight Title.

Last week, we saw Nia Jax face Alicia Fox, and this coming Sunday, on the Kick-Off show, these two will hook it up, again.

The steel cage is being lowered.  Our main event is live, and next on Raw.

We are live at the Fed Ex Forum, in Memphis, Tennessee, set for our main event.

Owens vs Reigns, inside a steel cage.

Reigns wins the match by escaping out of the cage, before Owens could.

Rusev shows up, and the two men fight it out.

Rusev and Owens has Reigns trapped inside the cage, and here comes Rollins.  He climbs up the very top of the cage, and flies, ending the show with all four men down.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Yup, they are going to reunite Reigns and Rollins, even if it’s for one night.  A good show tonight, the only two down parts were the two squashes.  But I love how they treated the Cruiserweight Division, and can’t wait to see more.  The women’s tag match was very good, Cesaro and Sheamus move on, we hear from the great List of Jericho, and 2 good main event matches, to boot.

Not much more you can ask for, setting up Clash of Champions.

Send me your opinions, and get ready for Smackdown Live tomorrow night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Smackdown Live 9/13/16…The Face Who Runs The Place

Right after Backlash, we begin tonight’s program with a look over what happened at this past Sunday’s Backlash.  3 new champions were crowned, including AJ Styles becoming the new WWE World Champion.

We are live in Philly, and our new WWE World Champion, “The Face Who Runs The Place”, AJ Styles kicks off Smackdown Live.

Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga welcome us to the show.

The Champ Is Here!!

I hate to say I told you so quietly, so let him yell it, I TOLD YA SO!!!  Everything he has said, he has done.  He told us he would beat John Cena at Summerslam, he did, and he is now the face who runs the place.  He told us he would beat Dean Ambrose, and he became the WWE World Champion.

If he told us he can beat Cena and Ambrose with an arm tied behind his back, you can bet its the gospel.  If he told us to buy a lottery ticket, because you’d be a millionaire, you would.

And now he is the champ who runs the camp.  Philly, did you hear him?  He is the champ who runs the camp.  World, he is the champ who runs the camp.

Here comes John Cena.

Philly is giving Cena some love, okay not really, but you know the deal.

You can hear all of these people, you want something that belongs to him, and he decided he wants it back.

AJ threw back his armband, and Cena wants the WWE World Championship, and he decided now is the time to take it back.  Because you know the greatest champion that has said “To be the man, you have to beat the man”, and he wants to make history.

He has one goal in mind, and that is to announce the 16-time Champ is here.

Here comes Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose goes right to AJ, and said he made the biggest mistake of his life.  He can take losing the title, but when he kicked him in the jewels, he stole it from him, and now is his enemy.  And you don’t want to make an enemy out of him.  Ambrose claims AJ did it because he knew he was beat, and there was nothing else he could have done

Cena pushes him to the side, and calls him out for losing after a nut shot.  Cena said Stone Cold was right for calling him out on his podcast.

Uh-Oh, please Dean, go there.

Ambrose didn’t step up, he stepped down, and showed WWE Universe he has no balls, brah.

Now the Philly crowd loves Cena.

I’m sorry, you must be mistaken Ambrose for someone who gives a damn about what Cena thinks, cause he doesn’t.  He has no patience for Cena.  He doesn’t care for his sanctimonious rah-rah bullcrap.  You know what Cena is to Ambrose?

A part-timer.

You’re better off doing those TV shows, those award shows, because you can’t keep up anymore.  WWE uses you as a corporate puppet that goes on morning shows, and look great on cereal boxes, but you can’t get it done anymore.  You can’t get past this chump, what makes you think you can get through him?  You’re nothing but a lazy….

And here comes Shane O’ Mac.

What’s up Philly?  Through all of this emotion, Shane had to come out.  At Summerslam, AJ and Cena tore the house down at Summerslam.  He beat him in the ring, clean.  Now the face who runs this place is getting to Shane, but he earned that.  But he got into Backlash, and tore the house down with Dean Ambrose.  But Styles took the easy way out.  It’s not how Shane would have done it, but he is the WWE World Champion.

And Dean, he knows emotions are getting high, but he is owned a rematch.  But that is not what is going to happen.  Because at No Mercy, he will defend the WWE World Championship against John Cena, and Dean Ambrose in a Triple Threat.

But since these two have so much animosity tonight, they will ne teaming up together to face AJ Styles and a partner of his choosing.  And since he is the champ who runs this camp, he is sure the GM will find a suitable partner for him.

Tonight, Randy Orton will address his status, and tonight, we will have a Fatal 5-Way to determine who the new Smackdown Women’s Champ Becky Lynch will face.

Rematch from Backlash, The Usos Vs The Hype Bros is now.

The Usos win the match with ease, hitting a splash.

Heath Slater contract signing is tonight.

We hear from The Miz, next.

Curt Hawkins is here!!

AWESOME!!!

Here comes the must-see Intercontinental Champion, The Miz.

For weeks, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, and most of WWE Universe has been calling The Miz a coward.  But he left Backlash with his beautiful wife by his side, and the Intercontinental Championship on his shoulder.  It is day 162 of being the Intercontinental Champion.  He has held this title more than 132 champions, including Pat Patterson and Dolph Ziggler.

Here comes Ziggler.

He is holding the IC Title, yet he isn’t really the champion.  But no matter what he does, he hear people in the back laugh, Miz knows why.  The ones you can’t pull the wool over you eye, the WWE Universe, you will never be seen as a top guy.  The WWE Universe knows about you.

Miz wants to make this clear, every show Miz is on, he is a top guy.  And if he lives and dies by what the WWE Universe thinks, well then they can bury Miz 6 feet under, just like Ziggler’s career.

Ziggler agrees, he is at crossroads in WWE.  But Miz still has to prove he is the man, so what do you say one more time?  No Maryse, no interference, no girlfriends.  Just The Miz and Dolph Ziggler.

Maryse wants to get this clear.  Dolph Ziggler just wants one more match?

Here comes Daniel Bryan.

I’m sorry he interrupted while his wife was speaking.  Because Maryse cheated to win, and she is the only reason The Miz is still the Intercontinental Champion, so Dolph will get his rematch.

Miz has an issue with this, he told Daniel at Backlash if he wins his title, he wants his contract renegotiated.  So in order for Ziggler to get what he wants, Miz needs to get what he wants.

This prestigious Intercontinental Championship isn’t going anywhere until The Miz gets what he wants.

AJ Styles recruits Baron Corbin to be his tag partner. tonight.

Corbin wants that title, he’d rather be his opponent than his partner.

It’s now Corbin Vs Crews.

The match never takes place, because Corbin took Crew out of commission, and here comes Jack Swagger.

As of 12:01 AM, he is officially a part of Smackdown Live, and we will see a side of Jacl we have never seen.

Coming up next, Becky Lynch will have a few words.

Charly Caruso is with Becky.

How does she feel defying the odds, and become the first Smackdown Women’s Championship.

On Sunday, she was beat down by 5 other performers.  Five became four, then three, then two, and there was one.  They say the journey is better than the destination.

Well not when this is the destination, the Women’s Championship.  Philly is a fighting town, so come at me, bros.

5-Way Women’s match is up now.

Alexa Bliss took the cheap pin after Carmella knocked out Nikki, Alexa rolled her over, and pin.  Alexa Bliss will face Becky Lynch at No Mercy.

AJ finds Kane.

Kane is not impressed by AJ’s offer, and walks away.

Heath Slater’s official contract signing is next.

Shane McMahon introduces the new Smackdown Tag Team Champions, he tells Heath everything is in order for him to sign his contract, and Heath does.  It’s official.  Heath thanks some people, including the fans, Rhyno, and his family.  Now they can get that double-wide trailer.

Just then, The Ascension come out.  They challenge Heath and Rhyno to a tag team title shot, and Shane officially makes the match, now.

Slater and Rhyno win when Rhyno gores Viktor, and picks up the win.

AH Styles still doesn’t have a tag partner, but Daniel Bryan has one for AJ…some goofy guy named “James”.

Randy Orton address the nation, next.

Bray, Bray, Bray, all you do is talk and say you’re The Face of Fear?  He finally knows what that means, Bray is the Face of Fear, he is afraid of Orton.  That is why he attacked him from behind, but he will never be as good as Orton.  So Bray, come on out if you have the balls.

Lights go out, and Bray is on the screen.

A wise man knows when to stay down Randy.  And this world we live in is cruel.  I know this, I am giving you a gift.  I gave you a way out, and all you had to do was take it, but you didn’t.  And you chose to embarrass him, and he didn’t like that.  But now he knows what he has to do.  Don’t sleep Randy, do not sleep.

The spotlight comes back on, and Bray is behind Orton.  The lights go out, come back on and we see Erick Rowan nail Orton from behind.

But one RKO out of nowhere.

Our main event, AJ Styles and “James” Vs Cena and Ambrose is now.

Before James Ellsmore can come to the ring, The Miz attacks James, and hits a Skull Crushing Finale, saying he is the main event.

Cena and Ambrose win when Cena gives Miz an Attitude Adjustment.

Ambrose then gives Cena Dirty Deeds to send a message.

At No Mercy, it will be a Triple Threat match for the WWE World Title.  AJ Styles Vs Dean Ambrose Vs John Cena.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another great show this week, top to bottom.  I wanted to see more interaction between Ambrose and Cena, but going by what we saw at the end of the show, it will happen.

The Miz has become a star, with Maryse by his side, IC Title over his shoulder, and the things he says.  He is fun to watch.

Alexa Bliss gets the nod, and should have a good match with Becky Lynch.

A fun show tonight.  Do you agree?  Disagree?  Send me your thoughts, and don’t forget to tune in read my work this week over at http://ForeverRebuilding.com click on Ringside Seats, and check out my latest Smackdown Vs Raw report.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/12/16….Reigns Vs Owens

We are 13 days away from Clash of the Champions.  Tonight, the main event will be sealed, one way or the other.  Reigns Vs Owens, and if Reigns wins, he will be added to the main event, in a Triple Threat match.

Raw is in 10 minutes.

Last week on Raw….The Kevin Owens Show began, but here comes Roman Reigns.

Reigns Vs Owens, tonight.

We are live in Baltimore, Maryland.  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

Tonight, Kevin Owens Vs Roman Reigns.

Mick Foley is in the ring.

Clash of the Champions, the first Raw exclusive PPV will be in 2 weeks, and we will find out if Kevin Owens defends his WWE Universal Championship against Seth Rollins, or Roman Reigns added.

He talks about last night’s Backlash PPV, we saw the first Smackdown Women’s Champion being crowned, congratulations to Becky Lynch.  But Raw still has the premiere women’s division, and the Women’s Champion is Charlotte.

Last week, Bayley pinned the Women’s Champion, and Charlotte slapped Dana Brooke.  Sasha Banks informs Dan Brooke that Sasha is ready to get her rematch, at Clash of the Champions.

We come back live.

Charlotte tells us someone owes an apology.  Not Mick Foley.  Dana Brooke tells Charlotte that she doesn’t owe an apology.  But Charlotte tells Dana owes Charlotte an apology.

She cost Charlotte the match last week against Bayley, in fact she is talking to the officials about changing the ruling so Dana lost to Bayley, and not Charlotte.  And Dana decided to think for herself, and she tapped out to the Bank Statement, so she needs to apologize, or else lose her spot.

Mick wants to talk about Clash of the Champions, but here comes “The Boss”.

Sasha tells Charlotte she is the face of the WWE Women’s Division, and she is the only legit “Boss” of WWE.  At Clash of the Champions, that Women’s title is coming back home.

Here comes Bayley.

She wants to see Sasha get her revenge, but she beat the Women’s Champion last week, so that title shot, maybe should go to her.

Sasha tells Bayley they have some history at NXT, and she helped her awhile back, but in this women’s division, she has no friends.  Bayley will take a back seat.

Charlotte tells Sasha she doesn’t dictate about who she defends her title with, Mick corrects her and says he does.  But Sasha, she said she had her rematch at Clash of the Champions, but he is having second thoughts.

Why?

So, we will decide who Charlotte faces at Clash of the Champions, and Dana suggests Mick we should have another Best of 7 Series with Sasha and Bayley.

Mick tells us it will be Sasha Banks Vs Bayley….

Charlotte degrades Dana again, and Dana slaps Charlotte.

Mick makes this a Triple Threat match, with Dana being added, and the winner faces Charlotte at Clash of the Champions.

That match is next.

Sasha rolls up Bayley after she hit Dana with a Bayley to Belly.

It’s official, Sasha Banks Vs Charlotte, at Clash of the Champions.

Tonight, Match 5 of Best of 7 Series with Cesaro Vs Shamus.  Also tonight, Owens Vs Reigns.  If Reigns wins, he is added to the Universal Title match at Clash of the Champions.

We come back, and see Dana Brooke backstage.  She apologizes to Charlotte, the Women’s Champ doesn’t want to hear it, orders Dana to grab her luggage.

Shining Stars try to sell R-Truth some timeshare in Puerto Rico, but Goldust stops him.

Enzo and Big Cass want to challenge them to a rematch, after they cheated to win last week.  It is on.

Tom Phillips is with WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens.

Owens is not here to give “Terry” any quotes, such as Roman Reigns is never, nor will he be on the same level as Owens, and that the only reason why Mick Foley is stacking the deck against him is because he knows deep down he will never be the same superstar as his mentor HHH.  But he wouldn’t do that, and give Todd the satisfaction.

Chris Jericho shows up and informs us Kevin Owens was going to be Chris’ guest on the Highlight Reel, but Mick Foley nixed that.  So he is going to have Kevin’s ex-friend Sami Zayn on instead, and show the world the real kind of person Sami is.

A stupid id-it.

Bo Dallas is set for a squash, next.

A more serious Bo Dallas will face Brandon Scott, now.

Bo wins with roll the dice.

Bo BO-lieves in Bo.

Highlight Reel is next.

It’s time for the gift of Jericho.

This was supposed to be the greatest Highlight Reel, with a man who is so great Tom Cruise could play him in his movie.  Then again, so could Brad Pitt.  But this is the longest reigning WWE Universal Champion in WWE history, talking about Kevin Owens.  He had to go so high, so how do you change things?  By going lowest to the low, someone who used to be Kevin Owens’ friend, Sami Zayn.

Sami thanks Chris for that glowing introduction.  Jericho says what is he supposed to say?   Ole, Ole, Ole?

Crowd loves that.

But what else is he supposed to say?  Sami used to be Kevin’s best friend, he doesn’t even have his new phone number.  But Chris has it.

Sami wants to know why he is here.

Chris wonders why they aren’t friends anymore.  Owens doesn’t even look at him anymore backstage.  Chris knows it’s not because of Kevin, so maybe it’s because of Sami.

The only thing Sami wants from Kevin is the WWE Universal Championship, and he will get that from him. If Chris truly believes Kevin is Jericho’s best friend, he truly is a stupid idiot.

Jericho gives us all the gift of Jericho, and Sami cuts him off, and he says if he truly thinks Kevin doesn’t think of anything but himself, Chris is delusional.  Where is the real Chris Jericho?

Chris is the reason why Sami got into this business.  Guys like Chris, Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero.  Guys who have paved the way for guys like Sami.  Chris is a 6-time WWE World Champion, he was the first Undisputed World Champion, and now all he sees is Kevin Owens’ bitch.

Chris tells Sami he just had a message from Kevin earlier, and you want to know what he said?

Chris slaps Sami, and gave him the Code Breaker.

Tonight, Reigns Vs Chris Jericho’s best friend, Kevin Owens.

But next, Best of 7 Series, Cesaro Vs Sheamus.

Cesaro Vs Sheamus, with Sheamus leading 3-1 in Best of 7 Series is now.

Cesaro win the match, hooking the ropes.

Sheamus is up 3-2.

Seth Rollins is with Mick Foley.  He is confused about why Mick put Reigns in this match tonight, to give him a chance at the championship at Clash of Champions.

He doesn’t want any distraction for his title match, which is why he doesn’t want Roman in the match.  Maybe we can check with Stephanie.  She is in Singapore.  If this match takes place, maybe we should question Mick’s integrity.

Mick is irate over this, and he says he can say anything he wants about Steph, just don’t question his integrity.

Seth said he never would, but if he continues to believe in Stephanie, a former WWE Champion, former Hardcore legend, it won’t matter, because Mick will be proven a fool.

Jericho Vs Zayn is set for Clash of Champions.

Alicia Fox Vs Nia Jax is up now.

Nia tells Tom she will beat the crap out of Alicia Fox, whether she gives up, or she doesn’t get up.

The match ends in a no contest when Nia speared Alicia through the barricade.  An awesome sighting.  Officials came out to check on Alicia.

We are live in the Royal Farms Arena, in Baltimore, Maryland.

We see what we just saw, Nia Jax speared Alicia Fox through the barricade.

AHHHHH B-MORE, DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR….STAND UP AND CLAP YOUR HANDS TOGETHER.  IT’S A NEW DAY, YES IT IS!!

360 days as WWE Tag Team Champions, and counting.

New Day put their Tag Team Titles on the line at Clash of Champions against Gallows and Anderson.

Last week, Gallows and Anderson, the cool guys who are about too seat tried to be entertaining.

That is their thing, and DON’T touch their thing.

We have footage from last week’s Old Day footage.

Sike!!  We won’t make you suffer through that again.

They wasted your time, 5 minutes, and 37 seconds, we could have done a lot of things.

So, in short, they want to apologize for Gallows and Anderson wasting their time, and that won’t happen again, because they are our WWE World Tag Team Champions.

Here comes the “fun” group, Anderson and Gallows.

Really?  They pander to a stupid crowd like Baltimore.  They talks about Booty-O’s, and wear those stupid unicorn heads, and they waste their time?

At Clash of Champions, they will take those stupid unicorn heads and take their Tag Team Champions.

Summerslam Rematch here, with Gallows and Anderson Vs Kofi and Xavier.

Gallows and Anderson win with Magic Killer, in 13 days these teams face off at Clash of Champions.

Tom Phillips approaches Reigns about his thoughts for tonight’s match.

He’s only thinking about getting into the Universal Title match, ad becoming the Universal Champion.

Only way he can do that is kick KO’s ass.

The Cruiserweight Division arrives on Raw next week.

Jinder Mahal is the “Man who comes in peace”.

Jinder hasn’t had the chance to explain why he was gone.  He has had hate for a while, but he has learned to let that all go.  He has been in the Himalayas, he has visited in monasteries.  But he has found peace, and he wants to share it with us.

Jack Swagger is his opponent.

Jinder Mahal with the win, hitting a Neckbreaker.

Enzo and Cass are in action, next.

Tom Phillips wants some thoughts from Jack Swagger.  His Raw contract is expiring soon.

Swagger just breathes hard, and walks away.

His name is Enzo Amore, and he’s a certified G, and a bonafide stud.  And you can’t teach that.

This guy here is Big Cass, and he is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.

Badda bing, they are the realest guys in the room…

HOW YA DOIN’?

Shining Stars, there is only one word to describe you, and he will spell it out for ya.

S.A.W.F.T.

Shining Stars win, by holding on to the ropes.

Owens Vs Reigns is next.

Owens walks by, and Rollins approaches him.  He gives him advice on beating Roman Reigns.

Owens doesn’t need luck, and he talks about how he thought he wanted Roman in the match, so he can help him.  Seth always has someone do his help, but Seth sneaks in with the win.  Or wait a second, he’s upset because HHH doesn’t back him anymore, because now he realizes there is someone better.

Ever since Seth came back from his injury, he has failed.  He failed to win the title for Raw, and he failed to win the title a few weeks ago.  Yet Owens took one chance to win this.  So Rollins’ new phrase should be Regroup, Rebuild, Fail.

Foley cuts this off, and tells Owens his match is now, and warns Seth if he tries something, there will be consequences.

Owens Vs Reigns is now.

Rollins comes out, and causes the DQ, going after Owens.

An irate Mick Foley tells Rollins he needs to listen to him, and now they will have a talk.  He restarts the match, and here we go.

With Rusev’s help to distract Reigns, Owens wins the match with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Clash of Champions is still Rollins Vs Owens.

Rusev is alone with Reigns.

Rusev hits a kick in the head, and ends this with an Accolade.  Lana is looking on admiring this, and we end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The show was okay, but you have to love the ending.  Rusev gets the revenge he deserves, with the disrespect Reigns gave Rusev’s wife, Lana.

Clash of Champions is setting up to be a good PPV.  I loved tonight’s Highlight Reel too, and am looking forward to seeing Sami Vs Jericho.

And now with Swagger’s Raw contract expiring, perhaps he is the next guy WWE could rebuild on Smackdown, like they did with Heath Slater?

Share me your thoughts on the show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Backlash 9/11/16

Never forget 15 years ago today.  Tonight’s piece is dedicated to the ones we lost on that September day.

We are 45 minutes away from the Kick-Off show of Backlash.  Smackdown presents their first PPV since the brand split.  And our main event will be Dean Ambrose Vs AJ Styles, for the WWE World Championship.

Keep it locked here tonight.

It’s time for Backlash Kick-Off.  Live in Richmond, Virginia.  Renee Young welcome us to the show, with Booker T, Lita, and Jerry “The King” Lawler.

Tom Phillips is in the Social Media Lounge, and his guests tonight will be Heath Slater and Rhyno.

Tonight, The Miz will put his Intercontinental Title against Dolph Ziggler.

The Miz Vs Ziggler video is being shown.

Is this Ziggler’s last chance for a title?

Daniel Bryan is with Apollo Crews, trying to pump him up, giving him some advice.  He’s telling him to get loose.  Oh boy.

Baron Corbin isn’t amused by this.

He tells Daniel 2 weeks ago he beat the WWE World Champion on Smackdown Live, and he handles that by now having him appear on the show, and he’s off the Backlash PPV.  But he handles a nobody like Apollo Crews.

Apollo is free tonight, to kick his ass.  Daniel gives us our Backlash Kick-Off show, Corbin Vs Crews.

Tonight, Orton Vs Wyatt, we see video of that.

We are less than 40 minutes away from the live Backlash.

Last Tuesday, we see The Usos turning on American Alpha.

American Alpha is out of the title match, and we will have a second chance challenge, with The Usos Vs The Hype Bros, and the winner will face Slater and Rhyno.

I love this storyline here, we know American Alpha will be back.

Social Media Lounge, with Rhyno and Slater.

Rhyno is very “excited” about this match tonight.

Slater can’t lose, he won’t get his contract.  He can’t feed his kids.  He can’t get that double-wide.  He can’t build his pool.  He needs this win.

Has his kids trained him for this match?  This is hilarious.

Tonight there is a first ever Women’s 6-Pack Challenge match to determine the new Smackdown Women’s Championship.

Alexa Bliss joins the panel.

Booker T questions her experience in the ring, and Alexa believes she has this opportunity, and who is going to beat her?

Alexa is dressed like Harley Quinn.

Match time, Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, and JBL welcome us to the show.

Apollo Crews Vs Baron Corbin is now.

End of Days, Corbin silences Crews.  A good match to start the show tonight.

Renee Young is talking Jaeger Eaton, host of Nickelodeon’s new show.

Video set up for AJ Styles Vs Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Title, tonight.

Is this AJ’s night?

WWE is starting a message saying we will never forget about the events of 9/11.

Backlash is starting now.

We are live in Richmond, Virginia, we welcome you to Backlash.

HERE COMES THE MONEY!!  HERE COMES THE MONEY!!

Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan kicks off the PPV.

Welcome to Smackdown Live, presents Backlash.

Shane wants to thank all of us making Smackdown Live a success.  We are responsible for the ratings to soar, we are responsible for social media blowing up, and for new superstars to get their opportunity.

Daniel tells us we will have 2 title defense.  Intercontinental Title, and WWE World Title.  But we will also crown first Smackdown Tag Team Champions, and a new Women’s Smackdown Champion.

6-Pack Challenge kicks off the show.

Alexa Bliss is eliminated after Natalya and Naomi hit a Liger Powerbomb.

Excellent start to the show.

Naomi is eliminated after a Sharpshooter by Nattie.

4 women are left.

Nattie is eliminated by a Northern Lights Backbreaker by Nikki Bella.

Carmella rolls up Nikki, and eliminates her.

It’s now between Carmella and Becky Lynch.

Becky Lynch became the first Smackdown Women’s Champion, making Carmella tap out to the Disarmer.

All 6 women fought hard for this, and what a moment for Becky.

Charly Caruso asks Becky how she is feeling right now.  Becky thanks the fans for cheering for her for all of these years.  “Becky Balboa baby, we did it.  We did it”.

In 2 weeks, Raw presents Clash of Champions.

The Miz comes in Jagger Eaton’s dressing room.  He took Miz’s locker room.  Jagger asks Miz to be on his show, unless they can get John Cena instead.

Bray Wyatt attacks Randy Orton’s leg, will Randy be available tonight?

Second Chance Tag Match is set now.  Winner moves on to face Slater and Rhyno later tonight.

The Usos Vs The Hype Bros is now.

The Usos win with a leg cramp, making Zack tap out.

I love this new look by The Usos, and I can see them winning Tag Titles later tonight.

Renee Young is with Slater and Rhyno.  Slater is ready for The Usos.  He walks off, but tells Rhyno his stomach is upset, everything is on the line.  And Beulah made this crab dip that hit the spot.

But they are live, and Heath has to go.

Later tonight, The Usos Vs Slater and Rhyno to determine the first Smackdown Tag Team Champions.

The Miz Vs Ziggler for the IC Title is now.

Before the match, Miz wants to renegotiate his Smackdown contract, and after his match, things will get trickier.  So Daniel, Miz will do something he can’t do anymore, wrestle.

With some help from hair spray Maryse used on Dolph, Miz won the match with a Skull Crushing Finale.

These two can wrestle anytime.

The Kick-Off panel discuss what we have seen so far.

Earlier tonight in the Kick-Off match, we had Baron Corbin defeat Apollo Crews.

Bray Wyatt comes out now.

Bray wants Charles Robinson to count out Orton.

Greg Hamilton informs us Randy Orton cannot compete tonight, so Charles must count to 10, so he wins by forfeit.

The winner, by forfeit….Bray Wyatt.

However, Bray Wyatt will be competing in a no holds barred match against this man….

Kane.

Kane wins the match, with some help from Randy Orton, who came out with a RKO.  Kane wins with a Chokeslam.

AJ Styles approaches 2 “independent” wrestlers in the back.  Telling them they will never amount to greatness.  But they can tell their kids they were here when the new “Face That Runs This Place” became the new WWE World Champion.

WWE No Mercy is set for Sunday, October 9th.

Smackdown Tag Team Title match is up now, The Usos Vs Slater and Rhyno.

SLATER AND RHYNO WIN!!  SLATER AND RHYNO WIN!!  SLATER AND RHYNO WIN!!

Rhyno helps Slater by giving Jimmy a Gore, and Heath Slater has a job, and Tag Titles.

Heath and Rhyno get to talk about their reactions to being Smackdown’s first Tag Team Champions.

Slater was great in this, Yo Beulah, they are getting a Double-Wide.

Another Chicken Little commercial, with Ziggler and The Miz.  But they already faced each other in the ring.

It’s now Styles Vs Ambrose, our main event, and it’s for the WWE World Title.

AJ Styles just had his career defining moment, when he pinned Ambrose, after a ref bump.  AJ kicked Dean in the balls, and hit a Styles Clash for the win.

My goodness, this match had everything we needed.

The show ends here with Styles celebrating his win.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Going into the PPV, there was a report Orton hadn’t been cleared.  I always try to avoid websites the night of the PPVs, so I can be surprised.  They did what they had to do, but I felt Bray should have won that match.

And while they only had 3 weeks of build-up, I felt like the men and women did a fantastic job to make this a fun show.

It was built around Styles Vs Ambrose, and this was a fantastic match, and it ended the show on the right foot.

Now Raw has 5 weeks to build their PPV in 2 weeks, so I expect that show to try to top tonight’s.  But with Styles winning the big title, not sure if they can top it.

What are your thoughts?  Send them to me here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Smackdown Live! 9/6/16…The Countdown To Backlash

We are live in Lincoln, Nebraska.  Daniel Bryan has the Smackdown Women’s Championship, he brings up the first ever 6-Pack Challenge for the Women’s Title.

We will have a 6-woman tag match tonight, but first a Women’s Forum.  Becky Lynch is first.

Becky said things happen for a reason, but when it’s all said and done, she will be the first Women’s Smackdown Champion.

Natalya comes out, and said her worst night was the night she was drafted on same show as Becky.  This was supposed to be her queendom.

Alexa Bliss comes out with no music, calling them a soap opera.

It’s Carmella’s turn.

Now Nattie, Carmella, and Alexa gang up on Becky, but Naomi and Nikki come out to watch her back.

6-women tag match is tonight.

We are in catering, Dean Ambrose is enjoying himself.

Tonight, Countdown to Backlash.  AJ Styles will confront Dean Ambrose.

Shane O Mac and Daniel are backstage.  The Miz confronts both of them. Miz has to defend his title against a “loser” like Dolph Ziggler?

Daniel reminded Miz Ziggler was willing to fight him last week, and Miz ran off.  And if he doesn’t want to defend his Intercontinental Title at Backlash, he can hand his title to Daniel.

The Miz Vs Apollo Crews is now.

Good match here, but Skull Crushing Finale does Apollo in.  Dolph Ziggler was doing commentary, and Miz shoved Apollo into Ziggler.

Ziggler has the IC Title, and Miz calls for his wife to get the title.

Renee Young is with AJ Styles.

We see footage from last week, and AJ is irate at a stage hand for sending that footage.

A video profile on American Alpha.

Charlie Caruso is with The Usos.  Tonight, they face American Alpha in the Semi-Finals of Tag Tournament.  They have respect for them, but they will prove they still run the tag team division.

Lights go out, and we see Bray Wyatt.

A man had to fight for everything, just to survive.  Picture this, a man in the woods try to hunt something so he can survive.  But the man runs into a Viper.  The predator had nothing to fear.  The Viper could push the man into fear, but everything catches up.  Men learned how to adapt, and the predators became a play thing.  It’s the evolution of man, and now Randy, you have become the man, and Bray has become the predator.  He is GOD.  And the weapon he holds is far greater than you can hunt down, it’s Bray’s heart.  It’s something he will learn to fear.  The hunted becomes the prey.  And there is nothing you can do at Backlash.

Run.

6-woman tag match is up now.

Carmella makes Nikki tap out to the Code of Silence, getting the win for Alexa Bliss and Natalya.

Tonight, Tag Team Tournament continues with Slater and Rhyno facing Hype Bros.  But next, its American Alpha vs The Usos, winner moves on to Backlash for Tag Team Title shot.

American Alpha win in quick fashion, despite The Usos attacking AA early, they win with Grand Ampitude.

It’s The Uso turn we have been waiting for, when they took out AA after the match.

The Usos take out Chad Gable’s leg with a Top Rope Splash.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw, The Usos snap.

Now its Roman Reigns turn.

Randy Orton is backstage, Charly Caruso runs into him.  Bray told Randy he is no longer the predator, what is your strategy going into the match at Backlash.

Randy tells a story about a man, a snake, and a rabbit.  To answer the question, he will be waiting for Bray Wyatt patiently.  But at Backlash, Bray Wyatt won’t know what hit him.

Fandango is in the ring.

Fandango’s partner Tyler Breeze is not here, but he found someone else to tango with.  Some woman named “Betty”, and as Fandango tell her hips lied.

Is there anyone else he can dance with a little fire in their belly.

Enter Kane.

Chokeslam.

Segment is done.

AJ Styles is backstage, and he breaks some guy’s phone.  He is the face who runs this place, and this is how they treat him?

Coming up next, Rhyno and Slater Vs Hype Bros.

Curt Hawkins is coming to Smackdown.  Fact!!  Next week, on Smackdown Live.

Hype Bros Vs Slater and Rhyno is now.

The Slater family is in attendance.

Rhyno and Slater continue their run with a win.  Rhyno hit a Gore on Ryder.  At Backlash, it will be Slater and Rhyno Vs American Alpha for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles.

Earlier tonight, we see The Usos attack American Alpha after their match.

Renee Young tell us right now American Alpha is questionable for their match at Backlash.

The Usos come out, and they say everything has come back, and American Alpha was at the wrong place, at the wrong time.  The fans turned their back on them, so now American Alpha come out, and the fans love them.  So the feeling is right, and they are on their way to dominate.

Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles go face-to-face, next.

In 5 days, Backlash with Styles Vs Ambrose, for the WWE World Championship.

Charly Caruso is in the ring.

Ambrose sends Charly out of the ring.

Ambrose got AJ a little gift before they started.

It’s an old bowling trophy.  He didn’t win, just participated.  He just wanted to tell AJ it’s the only trophy he is getting from Dean.

You have no idea who you’re dealing with.  Cause if you did, you wouldn’t treat him like one.

And we see the clip from last week.

You think that was funny?  Dean tells him he was just giving him a high-pitched voice to go with his Soccer Mom haircut.

AJ is wearing Cena’a arm band.  This is a joke?  He got this from the last man he beat.  He doesn’t want Dean to hand him anything.  In fact, he will take that trophy he is holding over his shoulder, just like he took this from John Cena.

So make jokes Dean, but John Cena took AJ very seriously, and he beat him clean, in the middle of a WWE ring.  Let’s be honest Dean, you’re not John Cena.

You’re damn right he’s not John Cena.  No offense to Cena, but on that night, AJ was the better wrestler.  But Dean isn’t a wrestler, he is a fighter.  He drags people all the way to the brink.  If Dean serves his memory correctly, Dean beat AJ the one and only time they faced each other, but you don’t see Dean wearing a patch.  So you better pick up the bowling trophy, because he won’t be wearing a patch that says AJ is the face that came in second place.

AJ kicks Dean in the balls, and he breaks the trophy and we end the show there.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another good show this week.  I loved the Usos turn, and look forward to seeing how they play that out.  Slater and Rhyno are on their way to Backlash, and the ending played out very well.  I can’t wait to see Styles Vs Ambrose this Sunday at Backlash.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Don’t forget to check out my piece this week on ForeverRebuilding.com, under the Ringside Seats section.  I will be giving my weekly Smackdown Vs Raw report.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 9/5/16…The Kevin Owens Show

Happy Labor Day, and we are set for what hopefully will be an energetic Raw.  Last week, HHH costs Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns the WWE Universal Title match, and set it up for Kevin Owens to win the title.

How will Rollins and Reigns react?

Raw starts in 35 minutes.

We kick the show off with footage from last week, the buzz was incredible.

Earlier today, Stephanie McMahon is on the phone, setting up a celebration for Kevin Owens’ Title Celebration.

Mick Foley told Steph her husband embarrassed him, and she never returned text messages.  Steph asked Mick who does he  think he is questioning what she has to say, and Mick brought up the history they had.  Steph told him she was embarrassed as a leader, as a wife, that she had no idea about what was going to happen.  She didn’t respond because she didn’t even know.  He believes her, because if she is lying, that makes her a very bad person, and Mick can’t believe that.

Raw is now.

We begin the show with Mick Foley and Stephanie in the ring.  The Kevin Owens Celebration begins in Kansas City.

Here comes the new WWE Universal Champion, Kevin Owens.

Kevin wouldn’t shake the hand of Mick Foley, he celebrates his win.

Kevin is actually smiling, and Steph says Kevin deserves this moment, and Kevin deserves the title.  Last week, the entire arena was chanting Kevin deserves it, and they are 100% right.  But he doesn’t deserve a crowd full of idiots hijacking his moment.  They are trying to make this their moment.  The crowd isn’t great, they aren’t special.  Kevin is, he has deserved this the moment he set foot in this ring.  Last week, he defeated 3 superstars, and HHH gave him that extra nudge.  All he did was make things right, and put him where he belongs, at the very top of this industry.  Which is why Monday Night Raw is officially known as The Kevin Owens Show.

Here comes Seth Rollins, charging to the ring.

Seth tells Kevin this isn’t about him, so shut up.  How can Stephanie do this to him?  He gave everything he could to put this company on his back.  He broke his ligaments for this company.  Kevin tries to chime in, and he told Kevin he has no problem with him, he’s just a puppet to HHH.

Stephanie told him she had nothing to do with it, and Seth said bullcrap, Mick steps in.  Kevin Owens has been the chosen one ever since he set foot in NXT, but he will burn everything to the ground, and the king and queen will be begging for Seth to side with them.

Kevin loves the passion, where was this though before, because it looks like The “Architect” has done nothing but blueprints.

Seth decks Kevin, and Stephanie tells Seth he is suspended indefinitely.  Mick disagrees, he reminds Steph he is in charge of making matches, and she seems to be acting out of emotion.  He never has liked Seth, but knows how good he is.  So he will get a rematch for the Universal Title at Clash of the Champions.

Up next, it’s Charlotte Vs Bayley.

Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens are backstage, complaining about what just happened.  Mick will give us Owens Vs Zayn, and Jericho Vs Rollins.

Charlotte Vs Bayley is now.

Bayley wins with a Belly to Bayley after Charlotte accidentally knocks into Dana Brooke.

A non-title match tells me she is getting a title shot at Clash of the Champions.

Sasha Banks is here tonight, and she has some “bad news” to deliver.  Also tonight, Jericho Vs Rollins, and Owens Vs Zayn.

September is Fight Children’s Cancer Month, and WWE is teaming with Connor’s Cure to find a cure for Pediatric Cancer.

The Cruiserweight Division is coming to Monday Night Raw.

It arrives in 2 weeks.

Dana Brooke and Charlotte are backstage.  Charlotte is irate over her loss, blames Dana for not taking notes on the clip board.

Charlotte slaps Dana.

It’s time to Bo-Lieve.

Bo is facing some dude.

He has to Bo-Lieve in Bo.

Bo is facing Kyle Richards, and Bo has a more serious side, it seems.

Bo hits Rolling The Dice, and wins the match.

Bo-Lieve in Bo.

Tonight, Gallows and Anderson promise to give New Day a glimpse of their golden years.

Jericho and Owens are walking.  Owens is the longest reigning Universal Champion in history.  Rollins will get his, because Owens is like family, he is his best friend.

Rollins Vs Jericho is next.

Tomorrow night on Smackdown, AJ Styles confronts with Dean Ambrose, before Backlash.

Jericho Vs Rollins is now.

Rollins picks up a win with a Pedigree, sending a message to HHH.

Tonight, Sasha Banks is here to send a message.  And next, match 3 of Best of 7 Series with Cesaro Vs Sheamus.

Sheamus picks up the win with the Irish Curse.  Match 4 is this Wednesday in London.  Cesaro must win all of the matches now to continue.

Tonight, Sasha Banks will return to Raw with some news.

How ya doin’?

Big Cass and Enzo time.

Epico and Primo are haters?  They try to sell Caribbean time shares.  Nobody is going to buy them, because they are a couple of haters, and nobody will buy them in the middle of the United States in Kansas City.

Enzo and Cass Vs Shining Stars is now.

The Shining Stars pick up an upset win, Epico holds the tights, and wins the match.  Tonight, it’s Owens Vs Zayn.

Nia Jax squash match is up now.

Tom Phillips is with Sami Zayn.  He thought this rival was over, yet he has to face him again, but this time, Owens is the WWE Universal Champion.  Sami won the last encounter, and he thought his career would turn around, but it seems like nothing has happened since that big win.  Yet Owens is the WWE Universal Champion.  He is a bit jealous of him.

Owens says two years ago, Sami was signed to WWE first, he won NXT Title first, so Owens was a bit jealous.  But now the other side of the foot is here, and Owens won the race.  He is simply better.

Sami talked about being the better man the last time, and the race is never over.  He will win the WWE Universal Title, but he will do it by himself, and not have HHH win it for him.

Yup, she wins the match.

They are Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, and they are Retirement Specialists.  Ever since they retired The Dudley Boyz, they want to show The new Day that life can be good too when they lose the Tag Team Titles to them at Clash of the Champions.

We have The Old Day coming out.

The crowd is dead silent with this.

Here come The New Day.

They want to get into the ring, and Gallows and Anderson leave.

That leaves The New Day with The Old Day.

The Old Day try to attack The New Day.  It doesn’t happen that way.

Big Ending, that is all she wrote.

In 3 weeks, at Clash of the Champions.  New Day Vs Gallows and Anderson.

We kicked Raw off tonight with Kevin Owens Celebration.  Rollins attacks Owens, in 3 weeks, at Clash of Champions, these two face off for the WWE Universal Championship.

Tonight, Owens Vs Zayn.

Darren Young Vs Jinder Mahal is up now.

Darren Young is great again, and Titus O’ Neil is jealous.  He wins with the Gut Check.  But Titus tries to go after Backlund, and Darren attacks Titus.

Nia Jax is backstage with Alicia Fox, they start fighting.

Oh good lord, another squash.  Strowman Vs Sin Cara.

Sin Cara is challenging Strowman because last week he went after the heritage by grabbing the mask.  He is here not to allow that happen again.

Strowman wins the match by countout.

Here comes “The Boss” Sasha Banks.

There is a saying that every journey has an end, and every story has a chapter.  For years, the divas needed a revolution.  For years, there was women.  Like Mae Young and Fabulous Moolah, like Alundra Blayze, like Trish and Lita, who paved the way.  There was a revolution on July 13th, 2015.  Stephanie McMahon announced there would be a change in the women’s division.  No more bra and panties matches, and no more butterflies on championships.  They did it to become superstars.  This revolution is for every mother, and daughter.  And her revolution is for when she steps into this ring, it’s for every little girl who dreams to be something better.  She used to wake up at 6:00 every morning with her mom to collect soda cans to get enough money to buy a wrestling ticket.  That is why she did this, this ring means everything to Sasha.

At Summerslam, she was pushed beyond her limit.  Charlotte tried to break her back, but she is not here to make excuses.  Charlotte beat her.  She had an update with her doctors.

Dana Brooke interrupts.

Dana made a promise to Charlotte to make a statement, and she will end her little journey right here, right now.

Sasha laid Dana out with a Backstabber, and a Bank Statement.  The bad news wasn’t for her, it was for Charlotte.  At Clash of the Champions, Sasha will get her rematch for the Women’s Title, and will take it back.

Owens Vs Zayn is next.

Owens picks up the win with a Powerbomb, taking advantage of Sami’s injured leg.

Here comes Roman Reigns.

Before a fight can break out, Mick Foley interrupts this, and he makes next week a big show.  Reigns vs Owens.  If Reigns wins, he is added to the Universal Title match at Clash of Champions, in a Triple Threat match.

We end the show with both men staring each other down, and Owens was irate he had to get put in that spot.  Jericho comes out, and Reigns spears him.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The first hour and a half was great, I loved Seth Rollins making sure he told everyone involved he will take care of them.  And now we will see Rollins Vs Owens in 3 weeks.

But the middle of the show completely dragged down, and that segment with New Day and Gallows and Anderson was awful.

Thankfully, Sasha picked things up.

Send me your thoughts on the show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Smackdown Live 8/30/16…The Face That Runs This Place is in Action

We kick the show off with footage from last Tuesday night on “Talking Smack” with Daniel Bryan and The Miz.

This was awesome.

We day 148 of the Intercontinental World Tour, with The Miz.

Shane and Daniel are watching at a monitor.  Shane tells Daniel he owes The Miz an apology, because he got into The Miz’s face, and he can’t provoke talent like this.

Daniel said he won’t be so honest next time, but he finds it ironic coming from the man who has a beef with Brock Lesnar.

We are off and running.

The Miz and Maryse comes to the ring to kick the show off.

Now do I have your attention?  Don’t you dare boo him, when he is being held down by both his General Manager and his commissioner, they are going to boo him?

It took 148 days to get his attention for an IC Title that used to be prestigious, and was held by failures.  But it will rise again, because of The Miz, our Intercontinental Champion.  But he has a “soft” style, he doesn’t like to get hit.  Maybe that is because he is smarter, and he isn’t a loser, who likes to get hit.

And Daniel Bryan wants to apologize to him?  But you people don’t see the big picture.  We don’t see what is going on back there.  Who do they call to be a spokesman?  Miz, then go do a media appearance?  Miz, then go do a movie?  Miz, then win the IC Title and play a chicken?  Miz.

He does it all, day in, and day out.  He never gets injured, but we all seem to think he is unworthy, and he didn’t spend his first 12 years working at a bingo hall at DFW.  But then they sit and cheer people who get opportunity after opportunity after opportunity, yet they fail.  So what does make all of us?  It makes us cowards.  And you know why we are all cowards?

Here comes Dolph Ziggler.

Miz is out here making great points.  He does it all, the red carpets, the movies, the commercials.  But there is a reason why these guys won’t get behind him, because they see right through Miz.

WWE stars, we live for this, we breathe for this.  We go above and beyond to be the best, but Miz just wants to be famous.  That is why nobody will ever believe in Miz.  That is why Daniel Bryan called him a coward, we all see you through this facade.  All you want to do is walk through a red carpet, hold your title, and be famous.  Every week, he has a chance to prove he is not soft, and he isn’t a coward.  Yet you don’t.  You want to talk about opportunities?  You want to talk about proving to people, prove to Daniel Bryan, prove to your wife, prove to yourself.  You want to prove you are not a coward?  Fight Ziggler right now.  No title, just the two of them fighting.  Prove to himself he can do it.  Miz and Ziggler….right now.

Miz is ready to fight, but he steps out of the ring.  Takes his jacket off, up to the apron, and off he goes.

I guess Daniel Bryan was right, the crowd was right, Miz is nothing but a soft, safe coward.

Miz goes right back after Ziggler, but Maryse stops him.

A great way to start the show.

Tonight, it’s Dean Ambrose Vs Baron Corbin.  And tonight, Bray Wyatt’s Sermon for the Serpent.  Bray Wyatt has a message for “The Viper”.

But next, Tag Team Tournament continues.  The Hype Bros Vs The Vaudevillains.

The Hype Bros pick up the win with a Hype Ryder.  Not a fan of Mojo Rawley myself, but this is the perfect spot for him.

They move on to Semi-Finals of Tag Tournament.

1 down, 2 to go.  There are great teams, but the hype train has left the tracks.  They have their sights set on Smackdown Tag Titles.

They will face the winners of the winner between Slater and Rhyno Vs The Headbangers.

AJ Styles greets everyone, he runs into the guy he doesn’t know.  It’s Apollo Crews, as in C-R-E-W-S.

But dude, this isn’t a spelling test, have a good one.

Here comes “The Face That Runs This Place”, AJ Styles.

Smakcdown Live, The Phenomenal One is here.  The face that runs this place is here.  And the face that beat John Cena, and the face that will beat Dean Ambrose.  Dean Ambrose will see this face in his nightmares.  Dean Ambrose will see this face lying down, as he pins him to become the new WWE World Champion.

Here comes the man AJ Styles doesn’t know.  Apollo informs AJ he went to the back, and he got the match.  Crews Vs Styles, tonight.  And that match is right now.

A good, short match here that ended with a Phenomenal Forearm, pinning Crews.

Tonight, Ambrose Vs Corbin is our main event.

Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, and JBL join us.  Renee Young traveled to Heath Slater’s home for an exclusive interview.

Rhyno is there, as is his wife, Beulah.

Franks, crackers, and cheese for o’ dours.  Beautiful.

Rhyno is just eating the crackers, hilarious.

Heath and his wife went out for a second, and Rhyno looked at Renee, with a “How ya doin'” look.

Tonight, Slater and Rhyno will face The Headbangers in the first round of Tag Team Tournament, but next, Bray Wyatt has a message for Randy Orton.

Fireflies are out, and here comes “The Eater of Words” Bray Wyatt.

He doesn’t fear snakes.  He doesn’t fear monsters, he fears no man.  Because Bray is FEAR.  And when he thinks of the legend of Randy Orton, he doesn’t think of him as a mythical serpent.  He thinks of him as just another man.  A man who believes he has venom running through his veins, and that excites Bray.  You’re sick Randy, but that is what Bray likes about him.  Now what Brock Lesnar did to Orton was interesting.  He exposed Randy of his flaws.  He went into that fight as a man without fear, but he sees him now as a flawed man.  Bray eradicates the infected, and if he really has voices in Randy’s head, then he prays those voices are telling Randy to run.  Run Randy, run.

Enter Randy Orton.

Actually Bray, the voices in his head, the voices in his head are asking him who the hell does this man think he is.  Bray thinks he is damaged because he has staples in his head?  He’s been damaged for a long time, which makes him go.  So from one damaged man, to another.  Bray has his attention.

There you are, that is the Randy Orton he was hoping for.  The predator he wanted to see.  He shows off his scars, and is still wanting to fight.  But Randy, you are no longer the Predator that you once were.  He is damaged, he is weak.  Bray is the Predator now.  And he should know better than anyone, what does a predator do best?  He kills, and at Backlash, he will cut the head off the serpent, and hold the head like a trophy.

Randy knows about scars.  Does Bray think he know about his scars?  He knows Cactus Jack dropped his head in a bag of thumbtacks.  He knows the scars he got at Hell in a Cell when faced The Undertaker.  But those scars Bray shouldn’t worry about them, he needs to be focused on the eyes of those demons.  Randy even half-ass respect Bray, because he knows he has his demons too.  So if he wants Orton at Backlash?  You’re on.  But fear?  He’s not afraid of kicking Bray’s ass, right now.

The lights go out, and we have a tag team match with the women.  Alexa Bliss and Nattie Vs Naomi and Becky Lynch, next.

Nikki Bella joins the commentary table as we are set with the women’s tag match.

Carmella attacks Nikki Bella from behind, and during the distraction, Alexa rolls up Becky, and win the match.

The return of The Headbangers is coming up next.  Tag Team Tournament continues, with Slater and Rhyno Vs Headbangers.

New music for The Headbangers.

Great music for Slater.

Slater and Rhyno win when a bloody Rhyno gored Thrasher.

Slater and Rhyno will face The Hype Bros in the Semi-Finals.

Ambrose Vs Corbin is next.

AJ Styles joins the commentating team to watch this match.

Daley “The Milkman” Millman is talking in the ring.  He is licensed to compete, but nobody wants to compete.  But he isn’t leaving here until someone comes to the ring and compete.

He takes his shirt, his tie off, and his pants.  He is wearing tiny whites.

Kane answers the call, and he chokeslams.

Such a stupid segment, but Kane leaves, as Baron Corbin comes in.  Future feud?

Our main event, Ambrose Vs Corbin is now.

Ambrose loses, when AJ kicks at Corbin’s head, and all three men battle.  But the show ends when Ambrose catches AJ right by the ropes, and AJ is feeling it in his lower area, Dean has some fun with that.

The show ends with Ambrose celebrating the WWE World Title.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another good episode here, and it was highlighted by The Miz and Dolph Ziggler’s promo to kick the show off.  This could be a way to make The Miz into a bigger star.  He has done some great things with Maryse by his side, and that makes him complete.

I thought too Orton and Bray Wyatt was a good promo, and looking forward to their match at Backlash.

I love the trek Heath Slater is going, just keep it going.  I want to see how far he can go, the fans certainly love him, and the writing for him has been very good.

Where we go from here, who knows.

What did you think of the show?  Sound off, and be on the look out of my latest piece over at ForeverRebuilding.com under the Ringside Seats.  I will be giving my weekly Smackdown Vs Raw piece.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/29/16…Fatal 4-Way For The Universal Title

Tonight, we will see who the new WWE Universal Champion will be in a Fatal 4-Way match.  We will also see match 2 of Best of 7 Series, between Sheamus Vs Cesaro.

Raw is in 15 minutes.

In memory of Harry “Mr. Fuji” Fujiwara.

Clips from last week, when Finn Balor had to forfeit his WWE Universal Championship, and tonight we see a Fatal 4-Way to determine the new WWE Universal Champion.

We are live in Houston, Texas.  Corey Graves is standing by with all 4 competitors in the ring.

If it wasn’t for what Seth Rollins did to Finn Balor, he never would have underwent shoulder surgery.  And he would have never relinquish the Universal Championship.

Seth Rollins is the number one draft choice, he is ready to take the Universal Championship, and he is going to be very generous in giving mic time to any of these other competitors.

Kevin is gracious, and he puts over the other three competitors.  But now it’s time to be serious.  Now that Sami Zayn is out of the picture, he can focus on going after the prize.  He is a prize fighter.  And he is at his best when the big fights take place.

Now Seth, he is at his best, but Kevin is better.  Roman fights a bigger fight, but Owens fights smarter.  Big Cass, well he is just tall.

But Cass doesn’t even have his mouthpiece, which means he can talk.

Cass knows where he stands, he is the new guy.  He doesn’t have any titles, but he has nothing to lose.  He may be a new guy, but he is the biggest dog in the fight.  And Seth no matter what he tries to tell himself, size does matter.

How ya doin’?

It’s Seth’s turn to talk.  He is glad this is an elimination match, because he will send Cass back with his partner.  And Owens, he will eliminate him, and send him back to his Ernie-=wearing scarf, Chris Jericho.  And Roman, we all know how we stand, he will just have to beat Roman again.  There are three things in life.  Death, paying taxes, and beating Roman Reigns.

Corey asks Roman his thoughts, Roman stands up, and gives Owens a cheap shot, and the fighting with all four men begins.  It ends with Roman giving Seth a Superman Punch, and looks at the Universal Title.

Fatal 4-Way match for Universal Title.

Tonight, Paul Heyman addresses what Brock Lesnar did at Summerslam.

But next, Jericho Vs Neville.

Tom Phillips asks Chris Jericho that he gave a cheap shot to Neville to allow Owens to advance to tonight’s match.

Jericho tells us we all knew Owens was going to win.  So Neville is upset?  Is he fired up?  Does the Mighty Mouse come around to sing “Here I come to save the day”?  You know what he’s going to get?

Tom answers it.

No, that doesn’t make sense, you stupid idiot.  He is going to get the gift of Jericho.  Drink it in, man.

Jericho Vs Neville, now.

A great match between these two, we see Jericho make Neville tap to Walls of Jericho.

Raw is starting off good tonight.

Earlier today, Bayley was hugging everyone working for WWE, and she ran into New Day.

Dana Brooke interrupts this fun.

She tells Bayley she doesn’t belong here.

But who did she beat?

Who?

Who?

Who?

Dana is trying to counter that, but she brings up Gallows and Anderson.  They challenge them to a 6 person tag match, and Dana says to bring it on.

Bayley replies it’s already been brought.

Nia Jax is in the ring, ready to squash someone else.

She wins, with ease.

Gallows and Anderson used to be doctors, but now they are in the retirement business.  Some superstars need a little encouragement, like the Dudley Boyz.  Now they are enjoying table tennis, 3-D movies, and remembering back at the days when they used to matter.

But another team who needs to think about retirement are The New Day.  They are here to help them out, as is Nurse Dana Brooke.

We see footage of last night’s WWE Universal Title Tournament, with Seth Rollins.  He will walk out as “The Man” and be the new WWE Universal Champion.

Sami Zayn Vs Jinder Mahal is now.

An injured Sami Zayn hits a Helluva Kick to win the match.

Tonight, 6-Person tag match of Gallows, Anderson, and Brooke Vs The New Day and Bayley.

But next, we will get an update from Sasha Banks.

They show us footage from the Raw pre-show.  Sasha tells us she did hurt her back, but will be back soon.

Charlotte is with the crew.  Sasha calls Charlotte a coward, but Charlotte reminds us she was without her father, and Dana Brooke, so what is her excuse?

AHHHHHH H-TOWN, IT’S TIME TO STAND UP AND APPLAUD YOUR 2-TIME TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS….THERE’S A NEW DAY IN TOWN, YES IT IS.

6-person tag match of New Day and Bayley Vs Gallows, Anderson, and Dana Brooke.

Bayley and New Day win the match when Bayley hits Bayley to Belly, on Dana.

Tonight, Paul Heyman returns to address Brock Lesnar’s actions.  Also tonight, Fatal 4-Way match for the WWE Universal Title.

Cesaro is with Tom Phillips.  He is in a rough spot, being down 1-0 to Sheamus.  But he will do what it takes to win this series, because he wants a shot at a title that Mick Foley promised.  Nobody like Sheamus, so he will take care of him tonight.

Big Cass profile, heading into tonight’s Fatal 4-Way match.

Sheamus Vs Cesaro, match 2 of the Best of 7 is now.

Sheamus wins the match, taking advantage of Cesaro’s injured leg, makes him tap to the Cloverleaf.

Sheamus leads the series 2-0.

Video tribute to Mr. Fuji.

Kevin Owens video is playing now.

Braun Strowman Vs Americo, you know the story here.

Pain!!

He takes the mask off the dude too.

Stephanie McMahon is headed to the ring, next.

Video of Tomasa Chiapa, Cedrick Alexander, and Johnny Gargano, the future of the Cruiserweights are coming to Raw.  They arrive Raw in 3 weeks.

Stephanie McMahon comes to the ring.

She welcomes us to Raw, yet we have been on the air for 2 hours.

Tonight, Fatal 4-Way match for the WWE Universal Title, but first we must discuss what happened to her brother at Summerslam.  Some may think she was glad Brock Lesnar F-5’d Shane, but he is family, and you never mess with family…

Ladies and gentlemen, Paul Heyman just interrupted Stephanie McMahon.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman, and Stephanie if you may indulge him….

Stephanie tells him this is her ring, he needs to come to the ring, and apologize.

If I may Madame….

Don’t call her Madame.

ECW chants, and Stephanie thanks them saying she purchased ECW, so thank you.

Heyman reminds Steph that when Brock Lesnar pinned Randy Orton, Raw beat Smackdown.  Now he gets it, when Brock nailed an official, and he F-5’d her brother, he crossed the line.  But he is here to pay his client’s most reasonable fine, $500.

All dollar bills, I love it.

And now he is count them one by one.

Stephanie throws the money.

Brock provides value to Monday Night Raw, but what value does he provide Stephanie.  Explain to his daughter that his Daddy can’t provide for her anymore.  There is a storm coming, and it coming your ugly way.

And so the angel comes from heaven above to warn the advocate you will not survive the pending storm to which, no his client Brock Lesnar IS THE STORM!!

There is an apology to come out 8 days late, and there is an apology that goes out to Stephanie McMahon.

They understand the situation they put Stephanie through the board of directors, to which her brother is a part, that Stephanie has to dictate to.  We understand her father is a part of that board, and the money they make this company, to which the female empowerment.

No, Stephanie says there is a female revolution staring at him in the face.

Heyman understands Stephanie is the only, and right heir to the throne of this empire, and he is here to ask her, to beg her that she accepts this as a fine laid, and an apology that is sincerely delivered.

Apology accepted, she walks off.

And Heyman loves that.

We go back to the WWE Universal Championship, when Seth Rollins lays Finn Balor out with a Buckle Bomb.  And Finn popped his shoulder back in place, and won the WWE Universal Championship.

Footage from last Tuesday, when Balor went through his surgery, and he showed a tweet of his shoulder the day of the surgery.

Fatal 4-Way to the WWE Universal Championship tonight.  Seth Rollins Vs Big Cass Vs Kevin Owens Vs Roman Reigns.

Next, it’s Titus O’ Neil Vs Darren Young

We now see footage of Roman Reigns.

Darren wins with a rollup.

It’s time to make Darren Young great again.

Titus lays out Darren and Mr. Backlund.  Clash of the Titus.

Mick Foley and Stephanie appearance.  Mick feels he should have been out there.  Let’s ban friends and tag team partners out of tonight’s match.  Seth Rollins tells Steph tonight will be the best night ever, and all of that faith she has in him will be worth it.

Stephanie believes in Rollins.

Our main event is up now.  Rollins Vs Owens Vs Big Cass Vs Reigns, winner becomes WWE Universal Champion.

Cass is eliminated, he sure looked great, giving Reigns two big boots.  But all three men teamed up to eliminate him, and Owens hit the Frogsplash for the pin.

Now there are three.

HHH just came out, and gave Reigns a Pedigree, and made Rollins pin him.

It’s now between Owens and Rollins.

HOLY SHIT!!  HHH JUST TURNED ON ROLLING, AND PEDIGREED ROLLING.

OWENS IS THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION!!!

What an ending, what a moment.  But now Foley and HHH are looking eye to eye, when HHH leaves.

Owens is crying too, what a moment for Kevin.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Kevin Owens Show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

What a historic night indeed, a changing of the guard so to speak.  I loved it, because it makes this show interesting.  What will Rollins do from here?  You have to believe Rollins will be gunning for HHH, right?  And will Reigns team up with Rollins to reform The Shield?

My gawd, share your thoughts with me.  Just an amazing ending.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Smackdown Live 8/23/16…Summerslam After Burn

We kick the show off with some of the Smackdown wrestlers in the back, and we see AJ Styles coming up, and brag about his win over John Cena at Smackdown.  He sees a distraught Dolph Ziggler.  AJ says he doesn’t hang out with losers, and Ziggler fights AJ back, and both men need some help.

We start Smackdown Live in Mohegan Arena, Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, and JBL welcome us to the show.

Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan welcome us to the show, with the new Smackdown Women’s Title, and the Smackdown Tag Team Championships.  The name, and look of the titles are much, MUCH better than the Universal Title.

At Backlash, we will have a 6-woman 6-Pack Challenge.  The winner is the new Smackdown Women’s Champion.

Also, we will have a tag team tournament that will culminate at Backlash, but Heath Slater interrupts.

Heath was this close of getting Smackdown contract the last two weeks, only to have it pushed back.  He can win the Tag Tournament.  He tells Shane that he will pick any Smackdown Superstar in the back, and they will win.

Daniel Bryan says he can do that, and Shane ups the ante.  Slater has to win the entire tournament, in order to receive a Smackdown contract.

Heath will reveal that partner tonight.

It won’t be AJ Styles, he comes out and demands proper respect.  But Ziggler attacks him from behind, and both men fight, and we need order, so we go to a commercial break.

Becky Lynch Vs Alexa Bliss kicks things off here.

Becky wins the match by a Disarmer, we have Naomi and Natalya watching the match in commentary.

Heath Slater is trying to find a tag team partner.

Slater finds The Miz, but Miz is talking to Spielberg, and ignores Slater.

Tag Team tournament begins, next.

It’s The Usos Vs The Ascension, now.

The Usos win with the Samoan Splash, moving on to the Tag Team Tournament.

Tonight, Randy Orton is live.

AJ Styles is heading to the ring.

AJ has John Cena’s armband.

AJ Styles chants, and AJ sees a lot of angry faces out here, and he sees angry faces in the back, like Dolph Ziggler.

He did exactly what he said he was going to do….BEAT UP JOHN CENA!!!  Then, he beat him at Summerslam.

This goes out to the C-Nation, don’t worry, they don’t have to be John Cena fans anymore, just be AJ Styles fans.  Because he is the face that runs this place, and he should be the number one contender to the WWE World Championship.

Here comes Ziggler, wanting some more of Styles.

Daniel Bryan comes out, and will not allow the two of them to run this show.  Daniel agrees, AJ beat John Cena, he deserves to be the Number One Contender to the WWE World Title.  And Ziggler, he lost, but he was this close of being WWE World Champion.  But it seems like you two want to fight.  And these people want to see them fight.

So let’s make the match, and if AJ wins, he goes on to Backlash to face Dean Ambrose for WWE World Championship.  And if Ziggler wins, he gets added to a Triple Threat World Title match.

Nikki Bella is next.

Curt Hawkins is coming back to WWE.

Its Carmella Vs Nikki Bella.

Renee Young interviews Nikki Bella, but Carmella turns on Nikki.

The match never takes place, Carmella just made a statement, hitting the Bella Bomb, on Nikki.  She even calls Nikki a loser, like Nikki used to do.

Randy Orton is next.

Orton is mocking Lesnar as he comes to the ring.  He received 10 stitches after the match this Sunday.

Randy chants going on here.

Here Randy is, he shows us the 10 staples, and was in one hell of a fight against Brock Lesnar this past Sunday at Summerslam.  He knew the fight he was in for, but he would rather go into a gurney than have the way it ended.  Shane McMahon thought he was doing things the right way, and maybe on paper, he was.  But he and Lesnar will cross paths again.

Enter Bray Wyatt.

Bray just sits down at his chair.

How is your head Randy?  He saw what Brock did to you, and he saw the look in the eyes change, looking all blank.  But it’s something to have your head busted open, and realize you’re just a man.  You are a great man, but still, just a man.  A man who hurts, a man who suffers, a man who dies.  But Bray isn’t just a man, he is a GOD.

And a god, Randy can’t die.  But don’t worry, you will find all about it, in time.

The lights go out, comes back on, and he disappears.

Charly Caruso is with Shane, he says Brock will have repercussions.  And Stephanie agreed, but she only suspended him for $500, that is not taking it seriously.  But do you think that is fair?  Here is a soundbite, this is far from over.

Ziggler Vs Styles tonight, and next….American Alpha Vs Breezango.

Heath Slater is trying to recruit Arn Anderson.

He denies the offer, that was Heath’s last hope.  Rhyno agrees to be Heath’s partner.

Breezango Vs American Alpha is now.

American Alpha picks up the win with Grand Amplitude.  Such a good match here between the two teams.  American Alpha now advance to Semi-Finals of Tag Team Tournament.

Cathy Caruso wants to hear thoughts from Dean Ambrose, and he just found out.  He was in the casino.  He found out WWE World Championship Number One Contender is on the line, so he thought he would check it out.

That match is next.

Here comes The WWE World Champion, Dean Ambrose to watch AJ Styles Vs Dolph Ziggler.

AJ wins the match with Styles Clash.

An incredible main event, and Backlash main event is set, with AJ Styles Vs Dolph Ziggler.

AJ tells Ambrose he wants that belt, and takes Dean’s headset off.

2 weeks away from Backlash, the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A very fun show tonight that sets WWE Backlash in motion.  Styles Vs Ambrose will be a good match, and can we have a new champion?

Heath Slater and Rhyno, while I love American Alpha, I’d like to see these two win.  This storyline of can Slater get a contract is fun to see, but who will they face next week?

Another better show overall than Raw.

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/22/16….Summerslam After Party

Tonight, the city of Brooklyn is treated to night 3 of WWE.  After last night’s Summerslam, a lot of news breaks down about injuries to key players.

One of them is new, and first Universal Champion Finn Balor.  He hurt his shoulder, and may need surgery.  So we expect him to give up his title tonight.  That means Clash of Champions might prove to be more important than originally thought.

Sasha Banks also was hurt last night, and she could be out a few months.

And Randy Orton received after his war with Brock Lesnar.

Is “The Beast Incarnate” in the house tonight?

Raw in 10 minutes.

Footage from last night’s Summerslam kicks the show off.

We are live in Brooklyn, New York, at the Barclays Center.  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

Finn Balor is injured, and will need shoulder surgery.  It happened, when Seth hits the Powerbomb through the barricade.

Balor actually popped his shoulder back in place, to finish the match.  He will be out at least 6 months.

Mick Foley tweeted that he will accept Finn to relinquish the Universal Championship.

Stephanie and Mick are in the ring now, and here comes Finn Balor.

This Championship represents a lifetime of sacrifice.  And it also represents if you believe in yourself, you can accomplish anything.  Last night, he became the WWE Universal Champion.  But there was a sacrifice.

Finn wants to thank the WWE for this opportunity.  He wants to thank all the talent in the back.  He wants to thank Seth Rollins, for giving him the match of his life.  But most importantly, Finn wants to thank the fans.

But for now, he has to relinquish this title.  But rest assured, when Finn is healthy, fit, and ready, he will be back.  And this title is the first thing he is coming for.

He hands it over to Mick.

Enter Seth Rollins.

Seth is smiling, as he walks past Finn.

What a shame guy, what a pity.  But let’s not live in the past.  Now we know who the true champion was last night.  It’s time for a celebration.

He and Stephanie have been involved in some classic celebrations.  Seth is here, Steph is here, this beautiful, newly designed Championship title is here, so let’s reward Seth as the champion, and all celebrate.

But here comes Sami Zayn.

Sami beat Seth a few weeks ago.

But here comes the victorious Chris Jericho.  He has his scarf too.

Here comes Kevin Owens, he deserves a title shot.

Enter Enzo and Cass.  How ya doin’?

Lord, here comes Roman Reigns, he hasn’t even won many matches lately.

Mick Foley is speaking, this is how things will go.  We will conduct a series of matches that will determine who the new Universal Champion is the next week.

We kick the show off with Sami Zayn Vs Seth Rollins.

Rollins wins the match with a Pedigree, after Sami hurt his ankle, selling it throughout the match.

Rollins moves on to next week for a chance at the Universal Title.

Tonight, we will see a special look on Brock Lesnar giving Orton a TKO.

Another match is set.  It will be Kevin Owens Vs Neville.

Owens wins the match with a Rolling Neckbreaker.  He advances to the match next week.

Next week’s Universal Championship match will be a Fatal 4-Way.

It will be Big Cass Vs Rusev tonight, and Reigns Vs Jericho.

But next, it’s The New Day.

OHHHHHH BROOKLYN!!!  DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR, AND CLAP FOR YOUR 2-TIME WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS.

IT’S A NEW DAY, YES IT IS!!

Big E is back, baby!!

A wise man once said speak softly, and carry a big stick.  Big E. can only have one, and he talks loud.  He is back, BABY!!

Kofi tells us the magic is back, and those magic numbers are 365, because for 365 days, they have been our WWE Tag Team Champions!!!

Kofi wants to thank us, because you want to know who was responsible for them?

Who?

Who?

Who?

They were vocal, through the good times, and the bad times.

Xavier tells us they have a unicorn pinata, and it is filled with Booty O’s.  Booty- O’s, they make sure you’re not booty.

Anderson and Gallows show up, and says this is stupid.

New Day, this is stupid.  Brooklyn, you are stupid.  Anderson asks if they are really celebrating?  What are they celebrating?  They still lost the match.

Gallows said they are owed a WWE Tag Team Title rematch.  And Kofi is the stupidest.  Kofi talks about magic?  Did he enjoy the magic killer he received last night?

Big E. defend Kofi.

He has nothing, and Gallows agrees.  They have nothing, because the props they have won’t help them when Gallows and Anderson win the WWE Tag Team Titles.  And it starts tonight, when Anderson beats Big E.

Big E. has had enough, because they will show them why New Day rocks.

Anderson Vs Big E. is next.

Big E. wins the match with a Big Ending.  Does someone want to tell me again why Anderson and Gallows deserve Tag Title shot, with this loss?

The Dudley Boyz will say goodbye, tonight.

We see their first appearance on Smackdown in 1999.

Titus O’ Neil is in the ring.

Earlier tonight, we heard about The New Day becoming Tag Team Champions last summer, here in Brooklyn.  But what we forgot were The Primetime Players were Tag Team Champions, going in.  So every time he is in Brooklyn, he gets asked the same question, was that the last day of his life?  No, because when he flashes that million dollar smile, it was the best day of his life, because he dropped the weight that was Darren Young.

There wouldn’t be a Darren Young without Primetime Players.  And how is Bob Backlund going to teach Darren Young to be great, when Bob has done nothing great himself?

Titus could be Universal Champion if it wasn’t for Darren Young.  So come on out, and be great again Darren.

He doesn’t come out, and says Bob Backlund doesn’t want him to come out.

Crowd wants Slater.

Who is Bob Backlund anyway?

And here comes Bob Backlund, with a Crossface Chicken Wing, but Titus escapes, and slam Backlund.

Darren comes out, Clash of the Titus on Darren Young.

Next, Summerslam TKO.  Footage from Orton Vs Lesnar last night.

Last night, Lesnar beat Orton through a TKO, and he gave Shane McMahon a F-5.

Tom Phillips is with Stephanie.  Last night, Brock Lesnar crossed the line, and there will be repercussions.

Last night, Finn Balor hurt his shoulder from his match with Seth Rollins.  He pinned Seth to become the first WWE Universal Champion.  Earlier tonight, Finn had to relinquish the Universal Title.

Now, another qualifying match with Rusev Vs Big Cass.

Big Cass wins by count out.  I hate that ending.  Rusev’s bruised ribs were killing him, and he does not look good here at all.

Big Cass advances to Fatal 4-Way match next week.

Tom Phillips is with Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho.

Tom asks Kevin and Chris what happens if they both are in the Fatal 4-Way match.

That’s a stupid question Phillipe, but Chris will be a great Universal Champion.  Now they bicker about this, both say they will be the winner.

Roman Reigns will get his tonight.  Get what?

IT….YOU STUPID IDIOT.

Charlotte, the new Women’s Champion is next.

Charlotte comes out with Dana Brooke.

Dana mocks the You Deserve It chant.

Charlotte tell us she is the most dominant woman in the world.  You can forget about Serena Williams.  You can forget about the Simone Bliss.  You can also forget about Sasha Banks, and proved she is all flash, and no cash.

Charlotte is money, and she did this by herself.  She didn’t need her father, she didn’t need Dana.  She did it by herself.  And Sasha will never get her title shot again.  And Sasha, if you’re sitting at home watching this, she is here to say The Queen has regained her throne.

Here comes Mick Foley.

Mick wants to congratulate Charlotte.  They tore the house down, and last night, she was the better woman.  Foley has talked to “The Boss”, and when she comes back from her back injury, she will get her rematch.

Charlotte tells Mick that if she comes back, she will break her back again.  Charlotte deserves the night off.  There is nobody worthy of a match against her.

This is one of the best moments of his job, because he and Stephanie just talked about this, and they just signed the hottest free agent in the women’s division….

IT’S BAYLEY!!

She can’t believe this is really happening.  The crowd chants she deserves it.

She has been waiting for this moment her entire life.  So how about they make this a moment by giving each other a hug.

Right here in Brooklyn, New York.

This is your hottest free agent Mick?  There is a reason Bayley is being left behind in the Diva Revolution.  Now she wants to upstage Charlotte?

Bayley respects Charlotte, so she would never try to upstage her.  But she will challenge her for the Women’s Championship.

Oh sweet Bayley, you think this is the place where she can just talk about how this is the biggest opportunity for her?  She needs to step in line with everyone else.  Charlotte isn’t dressed to compete, but Dana is.

So it’s Dana Vs Bayley, next.

Bayley picks up the win with a Bayley to Belly.

Roman Reigns is approached by Tom Phillips.  Tonight, he will shut Jericho’s mouth, either with the scarf, or with his fist.

Jericho Vs Reigns tonight, winner advances to Fatal 4-Way match.

Last night, Cesaro and Sheamus had their first match of Best of 7 Series, and Sheamus won.

Andrea is with Sheamus.

Next week, match two of Sheamus Vs Cesaro takes place.

People are counting on Cesaro, but he always lets them down.  He can join the Yankees, the Mets, the Giants, the Jets, the Knicks, and that other basketball team, unlike them, Sheamus will be a winner.

Braun Strowman is set to destroy Johnny Knockout.

Reverse Chokeslam, match is done.

He hits another Reverse Chokeslam, and demands another three count.

The Dudley Boyz are set to say goodbye, next.

Raw from last year, their return to Raw.

Here come The Dudley Boyz.

ECW chants in Brooklyn.

Bubba doesn’t get very emotional, but tonight might be different.

One year ago, in this very arena, in this very ring, in this very city.  The pyro went off, The Dudley Boyz kicked some ass, and put people through tables.

Through the ups and down this year, some wins, some losses, you people loved them, they hated them, but respect was always there, because they busted their asses for us.

D-Von said it’s been a hell of a year, it’s been a hell of a career.  He has been up and down with this very man, creating history.  Like the TLC matches, which some still say are the best match of all-time.  Creating history with guys like Edge and Christian, and The Hardy Boyz.

Delete!!  Delete!!  chants.

D-Von would do this all over again.  Bubba Ray wants the fans to stand up, and applaud for themselves.  Bubba said you get to go out in your own terms, and while things didn’t go their way, they still went out on their own terms.  Thank you.

Here come The Shining Stars.

Primo says it’s about time they leave, they have been washed-up.  And Primo and Epico have been saying…

We Want Tables chants.

There will be no tables tonight.

Since they are leaving, Epico and Primo have a special gift for them.  Two economy tickets to Puerto Rico.

But with all the free time they have, they get to offer all of the wonderful things Puerto Rico has to offer.

So Dudley Boyz, take the tickets, take the tables, and come to Puerto Rico….

They blasted them, time for a 3-D.

And a What’s Up?

D-Von….GET THE TABLE!!

Anderson and Gallows attack the Dudley Boyz.

Magic Killer right on the floor.

Magic Killer right through the table, on D-Von.

Wow, we will have a match with these two teams.

Coming up next, Reigns Vs Jericho, winner goes on to Fatal 4-Way match next week, for the WWE Universal Title match.

Despite Kevin Owens’ help, Roman Reigns speared Jericho to win, and advance to the Fatal 4-Way match next week, for the Universal Championship.

A good ending sequence though, and Reigns ends Raw celebrating.

Next week, it will be Owens Vs Rollins Vs Reigns Vs Big Cass.

Raw ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A good show tonight, and it made these matches feel important.  The moment of the night belonged to Bayley.  Finally making her Raw debut.

Just a shame to Finn Balor, but it made tonight feel more important.

Dudley Boyz Vs Gallows and Anderson is a match I’d love to see, and it looks like we will get to see it.

Not sure what they are doing, making Rusev look foolish lately, after Reigns disrespected his wife, and he never truly got his revenge.  Maybe next week, Rusev ruins Reigns chances at the title?

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Summerslam 8/21/16

The biggest party of the summer comes to the bright lights of New York.

Tonight, Summerslam is here.  15 years in the making, Brock Lesnar Vs Randy Orton.  We will also see the first WWE Universal Champion be crowned, when Seth Rollins faces Finn Balor.  And for the WWE Championship, Dolph Ziggler will face Dean Ambrose.

The Summerslam Kick-Off show is upon us, so keep checking here throughout the night.

We are live at the Barclays Center.  Renee Young welcomes us to the Summerslam Kick-Off show.  Tonight’s panelists are Booker T, Lita, and Jerry “The King” Lawler.

Tom Phillips is at the Social Media Lounge.  Tonight’s guest will be the WWE Women’s Champion, “The Boss” Sasha Banks.

One the Kick-Off show, we have a 12-man tag match.  Also The Dudley Boyz Vs Sami Zayn and Neville.

Best of 7 Series kicks off tonight, with Cesaro Vs Sheamus, on the Kick-Off show too.

3 matches in the next 2 hours.

Tonight, John Cena Vs AJ Styles, one on one.

Video profiling the match is showing now.

Next, breaking down the IC match between The Miz Vs Apollo Crews.

Apollo Crews last week showed The Miz who he is.

Tonight, Apollo has an opportunity to become the new IC Champion.

Tom Phillips is with Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens.

Chris apologized for getting Tom’s name wrong.  Sorry Phillip.

He also has to apologize to Enzo Amore for saying he couldn’t be a certified G.  He googled it, and saw you can be a certified G for $89.99.  So he has a certified G.

He’s talking about chemistry, something you can’t teach.

KO said you can, he had a 96 in chemistry in high school.  But not that chemistry, Jericho and Owens has a bond.  And they will take out the two hometown boys.  Enzo will get home, and see his father is crying, and his mother is wearing a Kevin Owens T-shirt.

And they will teach something else, IT.

JBL, Mauro Ranallo, and David Otunga are ready to call for the 12-man tag match.

The Vaudevillains, The Ascension, and Breezango Vs Hype Bros, The Usos, and American Alpha.

The Hype Bros, The Usos, and American Alpha win the match when Jey Uso stole the pin from Chad Gable.  And now all six men are bickering among each other.

The Tag Team Championship are coming to Smackdown Live.

Tonight, Ziggler vs Ambrose for WWE World Championship.

Video footage is showing now.

How small is that window closing for Dolph Ziggler?

He could very well be a dangerous opponent for Dean Ambrose.

We can still post questions for “The Boss” with Sasha being a guest in the Social Media Lounge.

Baron Corbin shows up.  His match with Kalisto has been cancelled tonight.  He is a man about making money.  He tells Kalisto he hopes he is comfortable sitting at his couch with his wife.  He is going to put him permanently.

Tonight, United States Championship, with Reigns Vs Rusev.

Video footage is being shown from 2 weeks ago.

Tonight, Women’s Championship is on the line, Sasha Banks Vs Charlotte.

Video of these two are showing.

“The Boss” is answering questions now in the Social Media Lounge.

Cathy Dennis is with Cesaro.

Cesaro has something to prove with Sheamus, and tonight sets the tone for the rest of the series.  But this is the perfect way to settle this.  Less talk, more wrestling.

Cesaro Vs Sheamus, Best of 7 Series is tonight at the Kick-Off show.

But next, The Dudley Boyz Vs Zayn and Neville.

Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves handle their portion of the show, with tag team action, now.

Neville and Sami Zayn win after The Dudleys had some miscommunication again, and we had The Helluva Kick, and Red Arrow.

Tonight, Rollins Vs Balor for the first WWE Universal Championship.

We see the video footage of the two right now.

We are just 33 minutes away from WWE Summerslam.

Sheamus Vs Cesaro is now.

Sheamus picks up the win with a Brogue Kick.  He takes the lead in the Best of 7 Series to 1-0.

Who is going to win tonight, Brock Lesnar Vs Randy Orton?

Orton Vs Lesnar video is showing.

WWE Summerslam is now.

We are live at the Barclay Center, in Brooklyn.

Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves join us for the show.

Brooklyn’s own Enzo and Cass begin the show.

My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G, and a bona-fide stud, and you can’t teach that.  This guy here is Big Cass.  He is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.

Badda bing, realist cats in the room, how ya doin?

This match is dedicated to all the teachers who told them they’d never make anything of themselves.  Dedicated to the ones tryin’ to make money for the kids, so they can eat food for dinner.  How ya doin’?

This is a dream, and that dream will become a reality.  How ya doin’?

There was once this man named Blue Eyes who sang to New York, saying if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere, how ya doin’?

They are ready for JeriKO.

And Cass tell us there is one word to describe them, and he’ll spell it out for us.

S.A.W.F.T.

Tag team match is set, Enzo and Cass Vs JeriKO.

JeriKO win the match, when Owens launched Jericho into a Code Breaker.

Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan run into Mick Foley.  And they are greeted by Jon Stewart and his son.  Stephanie McMahon runs into all of them.

New Day interrupt the fun, telling us we all need to use the power of positivity.

Next, Women’s Championship is on the line.  Sasha Banks Vs Charlotte.

Charlotte wins the match, and the title when she rolled Sasha up, and pinned her, even when Sasha had the Bank Statement on Charlotte.

An incredible match here between the two women.  We even saw a Razor’s Edge off the top rope.

Charlotte is now a 2-time Women’s Champion.

A moment with The Club.

Doctor to Doctor to Phenomenal.

And they run into Finn Balor.

Hmmmm.

Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga welcome us to their portion of the show.

The Miz Vs Apollo Crews, for the Intercontinental Championship is now.

The Miz retains his IC Title with a Skull Crushing Finale.

John Cena Vs AJ Styles is up now.

AJ Styles just beat John Cena, clean with a Styles Clash and a Phenomenal Forearm.

What an incredible match, and what a statement.  Styles kicked out of the Super AA, and Cena was beside himself, trying to figure out what to do.  Styles escaped from another AA, and picked up the clean win.

Incredible!!

Cena took off his armband, and put it in the middle of the ring, and saluted the crowd.  What a moment.

Footage from the two fans who won the Cricket Wireless WWE sweepstakes.

Oh lord, time for Jon Stewart.  Why?

Jon keeps talking, and nobody cares.

Jon is an honorary member of New Day, taking the place of Big E.

WWE Tag Team Championship match is now.  New Day Vs Gallows and Anderson.

New Day are DQ’d when Big E. comes back, and kicks Anderson and Gallows’ asses.

Big E. takes a swig of the balls jar, and spits it out.

New Day are still Tag Team Champions.

They saved Jon Stewart.

Ziggler Vs Ambrose, for the WWE World Championship is up now.

Ambrose wins the match, retains his title with Dirty Deeds.

A bit of a short match, and the crowd did not seem to care too much.

Footage from WWE Week in New York.

6-Woman tag match is up now.  Naomi, Becky Lynch, and Carmella Vs Natalya, Alexa Bliss, and ???

Nikki Bella.

So she is a heel, again.

Nikki, Nattie, and Alexa win with a Rack Attack.  Nikki pins Carmella.

Still 2 title matches are left, and the big match.  But we see segment from last week on Raw, with Reigns and Rusev.

Maria Menounos interviews Rusev.

He is ticked that Reigns mocked he and his wife Lana’s nuptials, and ruins her wedding dress.  Tonight, he will pay.

But first, for the WWE Universal Championship.  Balor Vs Rollins.

We have “The Demon King” in our presence.

Finn Balor just made history, being the first Universal Champion, hitting Coup De Gras, pinning Seth.

I loved the finish, a slow build, but an incredible ending.  I can’t wait to see the rematch.

We get to hear from the Summerslam panelists.

United States Championship is up now.  Roman Reigns Vs Rusev.

The match is ruled a no contest, when Reigns and Rusev attack each other when the action starts.  But Reigns destroys Rusev with a chair shot, and acts like a heel, with Rusev being the face.

After Rusev gets up in his own power, Reigns comes right back out, and spears Rusev.

If this was designed to be a double turn, it would be awesome.

We will see tomorrow.

Our main event, 15 years in the making…Orton Vs Lesnar is now.

Brock Lesnar won the match by TKO.  Orton hit 2 RKOs, one of them on the announce table, and Lesnar took over from there.  Making Randy bleed, and the referee stopped the match.

Shane came out after the match to check on Randy, and Brock blocked his path, even hitting a F-5 on Shane, and this ended the match.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Overall, a fun night of action.  Surprised to see how the main event ended this way.  Fans were chanting for Goldberg, who didn’t show up.  So this would lead me to guess we will see Brock Vs Shane at Survivor Series?

Styles Vs Cena was amazing, as was Charlotte Vs Sasha.  Balor Vs Rollins was amazing, but Ziggler Vs Ambrose was very disappointing for some reason.

But where do we go from here?  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me, and I will talk to you tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II 8/20/16

Tomorrow night, it’s WWE’s turn on the big stage.  But tonight’s it;s NXT’s turn.  Samoa Joe puts his NXT World Championship on the line against Shinsuke Nokamura, we will also see Bayley attempt to be a 2-time NXT Women’s Champion against Asuka.  These two matches highlight NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn II, and we are 25 minutes away from the Kick-Off show.

Keep checking here tonight, to see the results.

We are live in Brooklyn, New York.  Renee Young welcomes us to the show.  She is with Lita and Mauro Ranallo.

Footage from last week, when Byron Saxton interviewed Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura.

Earlier today, Shinsuke Nakamura entered the building.  Joe entered the building.

They are both ready for tonight’s World Title match.

Charly Caruso is outside Brooklyn, with the fans.

NXT Women’s Championship match tonight, Bayley Vs Asuka.

Video of this match is now.

Tonight, Austin Aries Vs No Way Jose, one on one.

Moments ago, Bobby Roode entered the building, and is greeted by Cathy Dennis.

Brooklyn is a dump, Roode is Manhattan.  But they will experience the night when Bobby Roode takes NXT to the next level, and he takes IT glorious.

Billie Kaye will face Ember Moon, one on one.

Billie is ready for her match, she is a winner.  And she will prove Ember Moon is a loser.

Live in the Barclays Center.

Charly Caruso is pumped for this crowd, as they are settling in.

Tag Titles will be up for grabs with The Revival Vs Ciampa and Gargano.

Our main event, for the NXT World Championship, Joe Vs Nakamura.

NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn II is now.

We begin the show with a nice vintage video of the men and women sharing where they were at last year at this time.  Tonight, they are in Brooklyn.

Tom Phillips and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

No Way Jose Vs Austin Aries kicks things off.

Aries wins, making Jose tap out to the Last Chancery.

Austin Aries biggest NXT victory, proves he is indeed “The Greatest Man Alive”.

Aries attacks Jose again, with another Last Chancery.  Here comes Hideo Itami to stop him.

Itami hits a GTS, a move we haven’t seen since CM Punk, and a move he perfected.

Ric Flair is in the house….WOOOOO

Our main event tonight, NXT World Championship.  Shinsuke Nakamura Vs Samoa Joe.

Both men are getting ready for this big match.  A Funaki sighting, supporting Nakamura.

Our next match is Billie Kay Vs Ember Moon.

Ember Moon, with red eyes defeated Billie Kay with a flying, twisted stunner.

She was trained by Skandar Akbar and Booker T.  That is good enough for me to say she can make a mark here in NXT.

Tomorrow night, Orton Vs Lesnar, at Summerslam.

Bobby Roode is making his NXT in-ring debut, now.

Roode is GLORIOUS!!

Roode will face Andrade “Cien” Almas.

Roode wins with the Roode Bomb, now called GLORIOUS Bomb.

The GLORIOUS Era has begun.

Earlier today, HHH is with Orange County Choppers to unveil the new Cruiserweight Classic trophy.

It is GLORIOUS, I mean awesome.

The CCW crew are at ringside, the finale is on September 14th.

Our next match are for the NXT Tag Team Titles.  Johnny Gargano and Tomasso Ciampa, now called DIY will face The Revival.

The Revival retain their Tag Team Titles, with a reverse Figure Four, making Gargano tap out.

An incredible match here, and these are four of the very best NXT has to offer.  Johnny Gargano will be a future WWE Champion.  He is that good, and the crowd loves him.

The crowd is giving both Gargano and Ciampa a standing ovation, as they both deserve that.  Again, such an incredible match that all four men shined.

“The Boss” Sasha Banks is in the house, as is Becky Lynch, and Charlotte.  Ready to see their good friend Bayley attempt to be the first NXT Women’s Champion.

Bayley Vs Asuka is now.

Asuka retains her title with a kick to the head, after Bayley escapes from Asuka Lock.

Told a great story here, from the first match.

Both women hugged and shook hands after the match.  And again, the crowd loves Bayley, giving her a standing ovation.

She hugged all three of her Four Horsewomen friends, hugged her momma, and hugged a little girl.

For the first time ever, NXT is headed to Australia and New Zealand.

Mick and Noelle Foley are in the house, as is Finn Balor.

Our main event, Samoa Joe Vs Shinsuke Nakamura, for the NXT World Title is now.

Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Samoa Joe with two Kinsashas, the first one Joe kicked out.  Joe’s jaw looks to be hurt with that first one.

Nakamura is the new NXT World Champion.  The match started slow, but action picked up, and the fans love this.

Shinsuke celebrates in the ring, as the show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

What a night of action, with 3 big matches that delivered.  Tag Team Title match was the best of the three, but you still had 2 other impactful matches that sets the tone for the future of NXT.

Summerslam is tomorrow, what were your thoughts of the show?  Let me know, and I will talk to you tomorrow night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Smackdown Live 8/16/16…Ambrose Vs Ziggler…Miz TV

We are 5 days away from Summerslam, the fine folks of Smackdown will be closing up their Road to Summerslam, with Miz TV.  Miz will have Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler as his guests.  We will also see John Cena Vs Alberto Del Rio.

Smackdown Live is now.

Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan have Randy Orton sign the official contract to face Brock Lesnar.

Heath Slater has a bag of fruit, to offer a gift to his two bosses.  He expects a Smackdown contract, because he stood toe to toe with Brock Lesnar.

Daniel and Shane told him they are not interested.  I guess are in a bit of a pickle here then.

Orton has an idea, since he bit into an apple.

We cut right to the music intro.

We are live in Austin, Texas.  Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, and JBL welcome us to the show.

Miz TV starting the program.

Miz starts to welcome us to the show, but Dean Ambrose interrupts.

We are only a few days away from Summerslam, and Dolph Ziggler interrupts the fun.

Sorry to interrupt, actually, Ziggler isn’t.

Dean isn’t in the mood to talk, the two men go face to face.  Miz interrupts, reminding us this is Miz TV.  He invited them to talk, not fight, but talk.

Dolph Ziggler, who would have thought even 6 months ago, he would compete for the WWE Championship, at Summerslam?

Many people thought, including Miz he would turn out to be a flop.  But Ziggler proved the critics wrong in a career resurgence.  But what happens if he fails?

Ziggler isn’t worried about after Summerslam, he is only worried about this Sunday at Summerslam.

There is the new Dolph Ziggler, the fire, the pizazz, the determination.  Many people think this is the new Dolph Ziggler, but he doesn’t buy it.

Miz gives a OOOOOHHHHH

Shut your mouth, Miz.

What do you want Ziggler to admit, Dean?  That he used the company never pushed him excuse, that he always uses that as an excuse.  Dean was right about everything he said.  But he will be responsible for giving him that extra push he needed to beat Dean.

So let’s say Ziggler is right, where do we go from there?  You think the critics will leave you alone?  They won’t, that is where the real pressure comes, and we know Ziggler doesn’t like pressure.  He just caves in, and makes another crappy movie.  Look at this big chip, it just caves you in, because Ziggler doesn’t like pressure.  But he is going to continue to feel it, because Dean will beat him, and he will prove something to all of us.  He never wanted it bad enough, and Ziggler won’t want it bad enough.

Dean will feel pressure, but he will use everything to put Ziggler away, but it won’t be enough.  There will never be anything big enough to put Ziggler away.  When he is looking for one last move.

BAM!!  Superkick!!

This Sunday, you will realize Ziggler is that damn good.

Tonight, John Cena Vs Alberto Del Rio.  Also tonight, Heath Slater Vs Randy Orton.

But next, it’s a 12-man tag, featuring the Tag Team Division.

During the commercial, The Miz was talking about his opponent for Summerslam, even forgetting his name.  It’s Apollo Crews, and he shows up to let him know who he is.

If you’re keeping score at home, we have The Usos, Hype Bros, and American Alpha taking on The Vaudevillains, The Ascension, and Breezango.

American Alpha pick up the win for their team, with Grand Amplitude.

The Tag Team division has been lit.

Dean Ambrose was Superkicked earlier tonight, and he is not happy.  He faces Erick Rowan, tonight.

But next, Eva Marie makes her Smackdown Live in-ring debut.

It’s all red.

Naomi is Eva’s opponent.

Naomi has a new entrance, complete with glow in the dark, and is now a face.

But the awesome announcer guy is now introducing the glorious Eva Marie.

Eva Marie is unable to compete, due to traffic.

Oh my gosh, this is funny.

Flashback of Hell in a Cell 2015, when it was Cena Vs Del Rio for the United States Championship, and Del Rio won the match.

Del Rio runs into AJ Styles.

Styles reminded Del Rio beat up John Cena at Hell in a Cell 2015.  Del Rio isn’t impressed.

He doesn’t need Styles’ pep talk, and AJ reminds Del Rio he is the main event of Summerslam, and Del Rio isn’t even on the card.

Also tonight, Ambrose Vs Rowan, but it will be Orton Vs Slater, next.

Curt Hawkins is coming back to Smackdown, soon.

Orton Vs Slater is now.

Orton is DQ’d, because he thought Slater was Lesnar.

Does that mean Slater gets a contract?  It doesn’t matter, Orton takes Slater outside.  This won’t end well for Heath.

Draped DDT, off the barricade.

Orton is sending Slater to Suplex City, and mocks Brock.

RKO!!

Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan interrupt things.

Austin, Texas….we’re here.

Heath Slater is getting checked on, hurting all over.  Slater won, and we see Shane and Daniel congratulating him on his victory.  Heath thinks Daniel Bryan is Mick Foley.  He needs a pen, Shane hands him the contract.  Heath believes Shane is Stephanie.

But Shane takes it away.

That is cold.

During the break, Bray crossed paths with Orton.

Rowan Vs Ambrose is now.

A competitive match, but Dirty Deeds always does the trick.

Bray is looking at the sheep mask, and leaves Rowan.  Is this the end of The Wyatt Family?

Tonight, Cena Vs Del Rio.

But next, Carmella and Becky Vs Natalya and Alexa.

Carmella and Becky Lynch Vs Natalya and Alexa Bliss is now.

Carmella and Becky win with the Disarmer, making Nattie tap out.  Eva Marie did show up, so the traffic evaporated.  Naomi countered Eva though, and Becky pulled off the win.

Oh lord, Kalisto is getting beat up by Baron Corbin, again.

This is WWE Summerslam Week, on WWE Network.

Video of Lesnar Vs Orton:  15 Years In The Making is showing, now.

Orton Vs Lesnar, this Sunday.  I can’t wait.

Added to the card this Sunday, 6 women match.  Carmella, Becky, and Naomi Vs Natalya, Alexa, and Eva.

AJ Styles comes to the ring, to watch our main event.  That is next.

WWE NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn II is this Saturday, at 8:00.

Cena Vs Del Rio is now.

Cena picks up the win with Attitude Adjustment, and after the match, AJ hits a Springboard Phenomenal Forearm, and lays out Cena.

AJ is sick and tired of hearing the future goes through John Cena.  At Summerslam, after beating Cena, AJ will be the face that runs this place.  Cena says he has a passion of WWE?  That is great, AJ will make this a prison for Cena.  Because your time is up, my time is now.

He lifts Cena up, but John flips up, and hits an AA on AJ.

Now goes the table, John sets up the ring steps, and puts AJ through the table with another AA.

Cena is still breathing, and we end Smackdown here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

No matter what happens, John Cena showed us he is still the face who runs this place.  That will never change.  But I am looking forward to seeing Cena vs Styles.

I absolutely loved this show tonight.  They did everything they needed to do to hype Summerslam.  But my favorite segment still was Miz TV, with Ambrose and Ziggler, setting up their Summerslam main event.  I am also becoming a bigger fan of Heath Slater than I was before.  And what else can I say about Eva Marie?  My goodness, that was hilarious, how the awesome announcer guy told us she was stuck in traffic.

We are now set for this weekend.  If you want to check on my other work, please go to ForeverRebuilding.com, and click on Ringside Seats.  I am doing the new piece on Smackdown Vs Raw, where I tell you which show was the best show of the week.  That appears later this week.

I will not be covering Impact Wrestling this week, but look to continue that next week.

I will be on here for Saturday night’s WWE NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn II.  Send me your thoughts.

Daley “The Milkman” Millman is talking in the ring.  He is licensed to compete, but nobody wants to compete.  But he isn’t leaving here until someone comes to the ring and compete.

Who is this guy?

He’s in his tidy whities, and here comes Kane.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/15/16…The Final Countdown To Summerslam

Tonight, the final episode of Raw, leading to Summerslam.  We will hear from Brock Lesnar, will Randy Orton be involved?

Raw is now.

We see what took place last week, when Lana and Rusev were celebrating their nuptials.  And Roman Reigns crashed the party.  We also saw the conflict with Seth Rollins doubting “The Demon King”, and tonight, he calls out “The Demon King”.

We are live in Corpus Cristi, Texas.

Earlier today, Rollins stated that we are 6 days away from Seth proving he is “The Man”, and he is not afraid of “The Demon King”.

Rusev and Lana kick the show off, they want Reigns to come out, they are holding the show hostage.  But here comes Mick Foley.

Rusev is not impressed with Foley.  He says he sucks as Raw General Manager.  How could he put a match with Reigns at Summerslam?  He doesn’t deserve a United States Title match.  He has received opportunity after opportunity, and has failed.

He wants a real authority, calling out Stephanie McMahon, and here she comes.

Lana is still in her wedding dress.  She must have had it cleaned after being hit into a wedding cake.

Stephanie tells Rusev he doesn’t respect Foley?  Mick deserves respect more than anyone.

Rusev doesn’t care about Foley.  Maybe he should give her brother Shane a call?  They appreciate talent.

And here comes Roman Reigns.

He’s sorry, Roman is sorry Rusev found that website that he found his wife in.  And he and Lana will make ugly babies.

Rusev isn’t impressed.

Reigns says let’s fight tonight.  Stephanie and Mick assures them the US Title will wait for Summerslam.  But Foley suggests they can face each other tonight.  Tonight, it’s Rusev Vs Reigns, to defend Lana’s honor, right here in Corpus Cristi, Texas.

Tonight, we will see “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar.  And also tonight, Seth Rollins will call out “The Demon King”.

Sheamus Vs Sami Zayn.

Byron Saxton interviews Sheamus.

Its obvious Sheamus has dominated Cesaro, so now he is on to better things, like Sami Zayn.  Who is Sami Zayn?  He’s talking about Sheamus on Twitter?  But Sami is nothing to him.  He will do what he always does, kick his bleeding head off.

Here we go.

Sami picks up the win with Hella Kick, after Cesaro distracts Sheamus for a moment, evening the score from last week.

Tom Phillips is standing by with Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens.

Jericho and Owens accepted Enzo and Cass’ challenge for Summerslam.  But tonight, Owens will face Cass.  Jericho corrects Tom, saying he isn’t alone.  Jericho has Kevin’s back, and Kevin has Jericho’s back.  They have become closer in one week than Enzo and Cass.  Jericho talks about how can Enzo say he is a certified G?  Who certified him?  He doesn’t even have a licence.  And Enzo may be 7 feet tall, but he can’t spell.  There is no A, and W in soft.

But tonight, Kevin Owens will beat Cass, and at Summerslam, they will humiliate Enzo and Cass in their own backyard.

We come back, and see Cesaro and Sheamus argue back and forth.  Mick Foley intervenes, and tells them we will see a Best of Seven Series match between the two men, starting at Summerslam.

I can dig that.

The Dudley Boyz Vs The New Day is now.

Ringpostitis is real, people.  Dr. Gallows and Dr. Anderson are here to find a cure for it.

Trouble in Paradise, Kofi pins Devon, after a setback from The Dudleys.

We see the tests did not work.  So The New Day are not amused by this.  Calling out Anderson and Gallows are jokes.  This Sunday, at Summerslam, they will show they are the dominant tag team.

Nia Jax is up next.

Nia destroyed some wrestler named Rachel, with a Powerslam.

Paul Heyman will speak, next.

Here is Brock Lesnar.

Ladies and gentlemen….

Heath Slater interrupts this.  Oh boy.

Paul wants to make sure someone gave him the ridiculous idea to interrupt Heyman, and his client Brock Lesnar.

Heath Slater is the hottest free agent of Sports Entertainment today.  He doesn’t know what is wrong with Smackdown, they wouldn’t know talent if they slapped him in the face.  This is why Heath came to Heyman.

Paul is laughing about this.  Because is he seriously thinking about advocating for Brock Lesnar, and Heath Slater?

Heath is trying to say he is getting another opportunity at landing a Raw contract, and appearing on Summerslam, by beating his client, Brock Lesnar tonight.  So what he is trying to say is can he face his client one on one?

The joke is over, cut right to where the money is.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman….

Heath screams, and says he needs it.  His kids rely on Heath.  Do you really think Heath wants to do this?  Brock will kick his ass, but he has to.

Heyman is trying to save Heath’s ass.  Heath is trying to do this.

Brock speaks.

He can appreciate that, Heath has guts.  He has responsibilities, right?  He has to put food on the table?  He has mouths to feed.  He has kids?  Brock has kids too.  So let’s talk about Heath’s kids.  He doesn’t give a shit about Heath’s kids.

He has 2 choices.  He can either walk on his two feet, or he can stay there, and keep pissing Brock off.

Heath goes for option 2.

Brock destroyed Slater.

Moving on….

Heyman gives Slater credit, he is willing to stand up, and fight Brock Lesnar.  Because Randy Orton isn’t willing to do that.  He has to slide like a Viper.  You know why he won’t face Lesnar?  Because he doesn’t measure up.  He is supposed to hype the match.  He is supposed to say Orton has a chance, he is one RKO away from winning.  But he doesn’t say that, because his client won’t believe that.  Ladies and gentlemen, the summer is in heat.  You want Heyman to hype up the box office of Orton vs Lesnar at Summerslam?  This IS the box office of Summerslam.  Not even a 12-time World Champion.  You want to know we should subscribe to WWE Network?  Here is the hype.  This Sunday, we have a chance to see the box office attraction in an official match, at Summerslam.  This Sunday, we have a chance to see a man who supreme Mix Martial Arts.  This Sunday, we will have a chance to see live the one competing in a match, BRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOCK LESNAR!!!

Tonight, Seth Rollins calls out “The Demon King”.

Also tonight, Rusev Vs Reigns.  But next, Big Cass Vs Kevin Owens.

Enzo and Cass do their thing right now.

Owens is DQ’d when Jericho laid out both Enzo and Cass.

Tom Phillips asks Roman Reigns what can we expect from his match with Rusev tonight.  Reigns is ready for the big fight, and Rusev comes to lay him out.

Rusev lays Reigns out onto a table, but officials break this fight up.

This is WWE Summerslam week, so WWE Network is giving us plenty of action.

Primetime Players have been reunited.

They are facing The Shining Stars.

The reunion lasted for four minutes.  Darren bumped into his tag team partner, and Titus responds with a Clash of the Titus.  Epico pins Darren, Shining Stars win.

Tonight, Seth Rollins calls out “The Demon King”.

It’s Jinder Mahal Vs Neville is now.

Jinder tried, but he is beat with Red Arrow.

Mick Foley told Stephanie Jon Stewart will be their guest on Summerslam.

Who cares?

Seth Rollins has been looking for “Demon King” and he can’t find him.  He has done his part, so he should get the night off.  Before Seth gets the night off, try to call out “Demon King” in the ring.

Seth isn’t scared, he will do that.

We come back in the ring with Rollins.  There isn’t a “Demon King”.

He has been looking for him all day, and he can’t find it.  So everyone wait and see what Seth is about to say.  There is nothing, and no one who can stop him from becoming the first ever WWE Universal Champion.  He is on another level, and “Demon King” isn’t anywhere.  So he will give him one more chance to come out, and face him.

Where is “Demon King”?

Hahaha, let’s drop a little truth.  Finn Balor is only trying to intimidate him, because Finn Balor is scared of Seth Rollins.  He will be in the same position as everyone else.  Nobody can beat him.  And “Demon King” will be in the same situation.  He will be horrified in Seth’s story.  Finn Balor is the face of failure.  Because he has nowhere to hide.

It won’t matter, because at the end of the day, “Demon King” will have no choice but to bow down to the first ever WWE Universal Champion.

Lights go out, and we get “Demon King” entrance.

They should have waited until Summerslam for this.

The Demon King takes care of a speechless, and scared Seth Rollins.

This Sunday, Rollins Vs Balor for the newly created WWE Universal Championship.

We see footage of last Monday night with Rusev, Reigns, and Lana.

Tonight, Rusev Vs Reigns.

Gallows and Anderson Vs Golden Truth is now.

Gallows and Anderson win with Magic Killer.

Moving on.

But here come The New Day.

They got them some, I like a more serious New Day better, sometimes.

Dana wants to apologize for letting Charlotte down last week.  Charlotte allowed Dana to get a taste of being in the spotlight.  But why did Dana fail her when she needed it the most?  But this is Charlotte’s spotlight, and she will wear the gold again after this Sunday.  And on Monday night, she might ask Stephanie to give her someone who isn’t an epic failure.  Are you going to cry?

Charlotte Vs Alicia Fox is next.

Foxy Vs Charlotte is now.

Charlotte wins with Natural Selection.

Charlotte calls out Sasha to come out to the ring, and she does.  But Dana Brooke comes right in, and knocks distracts the champ, so Charlotte clips the knee and hits Figure Eight.

These two women clash this Sunday, at Summerslam.

We have a Braun Strowman video.

Lana is in the ring, and she told us earlier tonight, you show why you never mess with her husband.  So rise, and honor her woman who will fight and defend her.  The only man who can ever have her….RUSEV.

Rusev Vs Reigns is now.

Reigns wins the match with a spear.  A hard-fought match that told the story of Rusev throwing everything but the kitchen sink, in honor of his wife.  But Roman kicked out, and hit the big blow.

The show ends with Reigns celebrating, and Rusev is in disbelief.

This Sunday, these two face off again for the United States Title, at Summerslam.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another sub par episode.  The thing is the performers do the best they can with the material, but the magic isn’t there that was there the first night.

You buy Summerslam, or you watch Summerslam for the matches, knowing Balor Vs Rollins will deliver.  Knwoing Orton Vs Lesnar should be a good, productive match.

Because the writing to this has been piss-poor.

Send me your thoughts here.  Tell me if you agree, or disagree.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Smackdown Live 8/9/16…The Lunatic And The Show-Off Team Up

After a boring Raw last night, Smackdown has a chance to supreme on top again, will they?

Smackdown Live starts in 5 minutes.

We enter the night with Randy Orton entering the building, and that new woman asks Randy how does he stay focused, knowing he is about to face Lesnar at Summerslam.

Orton said Brock may be big and bad, but it only takes one RKO to get to Viperville.

Alberto Del Rio interrupts, and says that sounds like it’s Disney World.

Randy proposes he finds out first hand, with a match.  Del Rio says let’s see if he can do it, with a broken arm.

We are live in Bakersfield, California.  Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga welcome us to the show.

Bray Wyatt comes out to the ring, with Erick Rowan.

Last week on Smackdown, Dolph Ziggler put his Summerslam spot on the line with Bray Wyatt, and Ziggler won.  But Erick Rowan came out to counter.

I would like to make something very clear.  Last week, I did not fall to Dolph Ziggler.  Wyatt was a victim.  Ziggler was desperate, and he rammed Bray’s head into the steel, because he knew it was the only way.  Then he realized everything had been taken from Bray again.  But what Dolph doesn’t understand is Bray is a God.  And you can’t ever kill a God.  Ask your friend Dean Ambrose, because he knows Bray very well, he still has teeth marks on his side.  And what you two don’t understand is this is Bray’s show.  There is no blue, there is no red, it’s Bray Wyatt Vs the whole damn world.

Here comes the WWE Champion, Dean Ambrose.

Everything has changed, we have Bray Wyatt in the ring, as always saying some mambo jumbo, as always.  Then we have Erick Rowan standing by his side, but Bray thinks of himself as a victim.  Well listen up, Smackdown Live isn’t his show, it’s the WWE Universe’s show, and the champ runs this show, so Dean Ambrose runs this show.

Wyatt dares Dean to come to the ring, and make him shut up.

Dean is smarter, he won’t come to the ring by himself, but then again the more Bray sprays out his words, the more he wants to shove these big words down his throat.

Here comes Dolph Ziggler.

Ziggler just walks to the ring, and fights the Wyatts.

Dean joins in.

I smell a tag team match, later tonight.

Ziggler nails a Superkick on Ambrose, accidentally.  And nails Rowan, but Sister Abigail on Ziggler.

Tonight, Orton Vs Del Rio.

And next, American Alpha are in action.

Ziggler and Ambrose face off, with Ziggler telling Dean that wasn’t on purpose.  Ambrose said he owes Dolph one, and Ziggler dares him to say no other time than the present.

Shane O’ Mac and Daniel Bryan rush in, inform them to save that for Summerslam.  Tonight, they will team up to face Wyatt and Rowan.  And if you don’t like that, then screw you.

Mikey O’ Shea and Mike Vega will face American Alpha.

The Ascension, proving to us they still have a job in WWE come out.  Here comes The Vaudevillains, followed by The Hype Bros.

All watching this match closely.

American Alpha wins the match, and here we go, all tag teams are fighting among each other.

American Alpha are left standing.

Tonight, Orton Vs Del Rio.

But next, the second chance in-ring Smackdown debut of Eva Marie.

Renee Young is with The Miz and Maryse.

Renee Young wants to look at Apollo Crews, The Miz’s opponent, Miz wants to look at Maryse.

Do you blame him?

Video of Apollo Crews is being shown.

Maryse and Miz are looking at each other, which is hilarious.

Eva Marie is going to face Becky Lynch.

The glorious entrance of Eva Marie.

Oh wait a second, Eva has a wardrobe malfunction, Rudy Charles asks for a towel.

No match, Eva can’t compete in the match.  Another no contest.

The new announcer asks Becky about feeling frustrated for not competing, Becky is here to compete.  So she challenges anyone to come out, and she will wrestle them.

It’s Alexa Bliss.

She is Team Blue’s hottest star, and here to bring bliss to Smackdown Live.  And she feels nothing better to knock out Smackdown Live’s first woman draft pick.

Becky Vs Bliss is next.

Eva Marie’s entrance comes out again, and Alex wins with Twisted Bliss.

Charlie Caruso is the woman’s name.  Eva feels bad about not facing Becky.  Alex beat her to the punch, but don’t worry, she will get her shot next week.

Tonight, Ambrose and Ziggler Vs Bray and Rowan.

But next, Orton Vs Del Rio.

We see the footage the last few weeks with Orton and Brock.

Orton Vs Del Rio is now.

Del Rio is DQ’d when he nails Orton with a chair, hurting that arm.

RKO out of nowhere!!

Rhyno is tuning up for his match with Heath Slater.  Heath reminds Rhyno that if he beats him, he can get a contract to Smackdown Live.  Heath tells Rhyno he has kids, and he can’t let him down.  He just bought a pool.  Rhyno just won the Michigan primary, he can’t let his constituents down.  Heath said his 4 kids are his constituents.  But Heath just said he has 2 kids.  Does Heath have an in ground pool?  Does it matter, Rhyno can’t let his people down.

Slater Vs Rhyno is next.

Earlier today, The Miz entered the building, and he runs into Scooby-Doo.

Scooby shoves Miz into Mystery Machine, and takes his car.

Slater Vs Rhyno is now.

Rhyno picks up the win with a Gore.  Slater is not a member of Smackdown Live.

We cut to Wyatt and Rowan.

Wyatt tells Rowan he has always been a good solider, but tonight he is asking him to fight.  To sacrifice his life, if he needs to.  To show the world that they are here to fight.  There is a cause for this fight.

Run.

Ben-Hur trailer, again, this movie will not do well in theaters.  You can’t make remakes from classics.

Daniel Bryan and Shane are impressed with Heath Slater’s work, they might even offer him a WWE Smackdown job.  Heath tells them he is the hottest free agent, he doesn’t need them.  He has 7 kids to feed, and will join The Suicide Squad, if he needs to.

More women’s action, with Carmella Vs Natalya.

Natalya tried to attack Carmella again, but you can’t do that two times.

Bell is run, match is official.

Carmella makes Nattie tap out to a leg lock.

Next, Cena Vs Styles Summerslam Preview.

Renee Young introduces us to the video of Styles Vs Cena, set for Summerslam.

We come back, and Baron Corbin is beating Kalisto a pulp, getting even for costing him at the Intercontinental Championship last week.

Well, alright.

Main event time, Ziggler and Ambrose face The Wyatts.

Ziggler hits a Superkick on Rowan for the pinfall victory on his team.

Ziggler pats Ambrose on the back, but “The Lunatic Fringe” hits Dirty Deeds, to show “The Show-Off” he is still the king on the mountain.

In 12 days, Ambrose Vs Ambrose for the WWE Championship at Summerslam.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A fun show tonight, much better than last night’s Raw.  We have a little friction between champion and challenger, setting up Summerslam.  No Apollo Crews, and speaking of Miz, why didn’t he act upset Scooby took his car in his segment with Renee and Maryse, and who let him out of The Mystery Machine?

I know, who cares.

I like where they are going here with Heath Slater.

I expect both shows to be good next week, since it’s the final build to Summerslam.  What were your thoughts on tonight’s show?  Send them to me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/8/16…F-5 Vs RKO

Tonight, Raw is in Anaheim, California.  Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs will be our guest host.  Mick Foley also extended the invite to Daniel Bryan.

Is Randy Orton lurking?

Raw is now.

Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

Tonight, an in-depth look at Lesnar Vs Orton:  15 Years In the Making.

And Daniel Bryan is here to clear the air.

Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs is in the house.

But we kick the show off with Enzo and Cass.

My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G, and a bonafide stud, and you can’t teach that.

And this right here is Big Cass, and he’s 7 foot tall, and you can’t teach that.

Badda-Boom, realest guys in the room….How ya doin’?

Last week, Enzo came out to Monday Night Raw, as a G.  He was talkin some game to the WWE Women’s Champion, how ya doin’?

She was smitten, he doesn’t practice sanatoria, and he doesn’t have a crystal ball.  He had that in the bag.

Cass said Enzo was like Mike Trout.

And then…Bon Jon Jericho wants to come out like a golden glove, and rob him of his Home Run.

This guy hits him like a codebreaker.  The only code he broke was the man code, wearing a scarf without a shirt on.

He and Cass are on Anaheim Angels on Stairway to Heaven, and Jericho is on the highway to Hell.  So Axl Rose wannabe, you’re going down.

Here comes Jericho, with the scarf, and without the shirt.

Jericho has some news for Enzo Annoying.  The only reason he is still here, is because every time he gets his mouth in trouble, he has the 7 foot maid cleaning up.

But at least Enzo has someone watching his back, but so does Chris.  How ya doin’?

Enter Kevin Owens.

Now, Jericho and Owens are closer, like Canadian brothers.  No matter what he does, Owens has his back.  No matter what he says, Owens has his back.  You have my back, right?

Owens has Jericho’s back, like Burt and Ernie, in the same bathtub?

You think that is funny?  Only a stupid idiot would think that is funny.

Owens used to like Big Cass.  Because he had dead weight, that he would carry on his back, and Owens had dead weight on his back.  But now, Cass took that dead weight with him to Raw, and he has to always hear him vomit spew.  So Owens doesn’t like Cass anymore, and if he doesn’t like him, he will have to hurt him.

Cass shows up, but Owens doesn’t want to hurt him, and Jericho will.

Yeah, Jericho will hurt him.  But Jericho isn’t talking about Cass, he is talking about this guy with the mitten head.  Enzo is going to get it.

Enzo Vs Jericho is next.

Enzo is DQ’d when Big Cass comes to the ring, and hits the big boot on Jericho.  Owens just kept interfering, and Cass had it.

Big Cass challenges Owens and Jericho to a tag team match, at Summerslam.

They agree, and Cass tells us at Summerslam, there is only one word to describe them…..

S.A.W.F.T.

Rusev is now married to Lana.  Tonight, they celebrate their marriage to us, live.

Mick Foley is on the phone, and he says they need to nip this Orton-Lesnar thing in the bud.  He is talking to Stephanie, who I guess has the night off.

“The Boss” enters the room.

Sasha Banks offers a Handicap match at Summerslam, with Charlotte and Dana Brooke.

Foley thinks that is a bad idea.  So he has a better idea.  If he puts Dana in a match with Sasha tonight, and she beats Dana.  Brooke is banned from ringside at Summerslam.  But if Dana wins, she is added in the Handicap match.

Ben-Hur is going to be terrible, and yet WWE is promoting it.

Braun Strowman screams to the ring, ready to squash his opponent.

Braun’s opponent is Jorel Nelson.  What possessed him to take this match?

He doesn’t have an answer, but he does get his entrance music.

Reverse Chokeslam, match is over.

Foley tries to use his laptap.  He runs into Puff Daddy.

Puff is coming to Columbus, Ohio on August 25th.

New Day show up.

Puff Daddy is producing the soundtrack to WWE2K17.

Big E. is at home, his balls are hurting.

Puff Daddy is going to talk to Big E., and give him some love.

Darren Young Vs Titus O’ Neil is now.

Darren won, using the tights.

At Summerslam, it will be Rollins Vs Balor, winner becomes the first Universal Champion.

Seth will speak, next.

Seth comes out, and he thought of Finn Balor as Jared Leto, to Seth’s Heath Ledger.  But after last week, he decided to rethink about his feelings about the man.

Last Monday, we see their face-to-face moment.

He’s athletic, we knew that.  He is agile, we knew that.  He is a potent striker, as any normal man would be still down on the ground, but he isn’t just a normal man.  But we know about Seth Rollins.  He wants to know the real Finn Balor.

Finn Balor isn’t even his real name.  Finn means famous warrior, and Balor means Demon King.

Will we see “The Demon” at Summerslam?

He wants to know who the real Finn Balor is, and the more he sees of him, the less he likes him.  This is Seth’s show, this is his ring.  And Finn got right into his face, how disrespectful is that?  How arrogant is that?  He told Seth he was going to beat him at Summerslam.  Finn has had 2 matches on Raw.  Grant it, they both were no joke, but they aren’t Seth Rollins.

Then Finn disrespected Rollins, by saying everything was handed to him?  Handed to him?  He worked too hard to get back into this game.  Seth knows his place, at the very top.

He doesn’t need smoke and mirrors to say who he is.  Seth knows who he is.  Seth is the myth, he is the legend….Seth is THE MAN!!

And in 200 years, people will talk about the legend of Seth Rollins.  How he sleigh the beast, or how he took out the face that runs this place.  Or how he conquered The Roman Empire, because that is what Seth did.  And how he will become the first Universal Champion.

That is what Seth Rollins is.

In 2 weeks, Rollins Vs Balor for the Universal Championship.

We will also see for the first time ever, Lesnar Vs Orton on PPV.

We see footage from last week, when Orton hit a RKO from anywhere on Lesnar.

Lesnar Vs Orton:  15 years in the making, we will see tonight.  Also, Daniel Bryan will be here tonight, to clear the air.

Sheamus Vs Cesaro is now.

Cesaro wins with a rolling of the tights.

After the match, we see what happened at Smackdown, when Brock returned the receipt from Orton.

And next, 15 years in the making, Orton Vs Lesnar video.

Lesnar Vs Orton is in 2 weeks, and Brock will be live, next week.

Daniel Bryan is here tonight, to clear the air with Mick Foley.

We have The Dudley Boyz Vs Neville and a mystery partner, next.

The mystery partner is Sin Cara.

Red Arrow, Neville and Sin Cara win.

Rusev and Lana are up next, celebrating their love.

Daniel Bryan arrives in the building.

It’s time for a celebration of love.

Lana in her wedding dress, Rusev wearing white, it’s a joyous occasion.

Lana is Rusev’s princess, and you have to give them what they want.

The fans don’t care, and Lana told us we weren’t a part of it, because it’s VIP only.

But we will re-live, and re-enact their special day with us.

This is a chance for all of us to experience true love.

We see the pictures, complete with music.

We get more talking, fans are booing, and here comes Roman Reigns, to some cheers?

Reigns isn’t here to ruin this, he was watching the video in the back.  He realized Rusev didn’t even have a best man.  So Reigns is stepping up to be Rusev’s best man.

How about he pour a couple of drinks, and toast the happy couple.

Rusev doesn’t need his stupid toast.

So how about accepting Reign’s challenge for the United States Title, at Summerslam.

He can’t accept the challenge.

Then, the toast needs to happen.

Here is a toast, he has never seen a Bulgarian swashsquash.  And a mail order bride.

That came out the wrong way, Reigns expected more, like his wife expected more on their wedding night.

Them are fighting words.

Reigns decks Rusev, Rusev runs into Lana, and into the wedding cake goes Lana.

Reigns didn’t mean it, and down goes the cake.

Sasha Banks Vs Dan Brooke is next.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw….Lana getting doused with wedding cake.

In the back, Rusev insists Reigns must pay for what happened.  Foley tells Rusev he can work on his frustration on Reigns, in a match at Summerslam, for the United States Title.

Sasha Banks Vs Dana Brooke is now.

Sasha wins the match with a Double Foot Stomp, after Charlotte is knocked off the apron.

It’s Charlotte Vs Sasha Banks, one on one at Summerslam.  Dana Brooke is banned at ringside.

Nia Jaz is here, a video showcasing her.

Next, we hear about Finn Balor.

Who is Finn Balor?  He knows who Seth Rollins is, and Finn tells us through a video.

“The Demon” is coming.

Dr. Anderson and Dr. Gallows explain to us to avoid ringpostitis.  It can be painful to your nuts.  Kofi Kingston is fixing to find out, tonight.

It’s going to be Kofi Kingston Vs Luke Gallows.

Gallows wins the match.  They tried to set up Kofi with ringpostitis, but Xavier helps his friend.

Speaking of friend, earlier today, Golden Truth meets up with Scooby-Doo.  I think Truth had a bit of “Scooby Snacks” himself, because he didn’t want the flies in The Mystery Machine.

Mick Foley is coming to the ring, next.

Foley comes out to introduce, in show of great sportsmanship, the Smackdown General Manager, Daniel Bryan.

Daniel congratulates Mick on doing a great job running Monday Night Raw.  Foley is complimenting Daniel on his job.

Daniel plugs Smackdown Live, and Foley doesn’t want to hear about that.  What Brock Lesnar did at Smackdown last week was a bit harsh, and Mick is deeply sorry.  Daniel tells Mick they started it with Orton coming out to give Brock a RKO.

Now comes talk about the Universal Championship.  Bryan on “Talking Smack” made fun of the title name, and Mick tells Daniel the Universal Title will be an important championship.

Here comes Rusev, he is the champion, Raw does not need another championship.  Then he and Daniel get into it.

But Cesaro interrupts the fun.  He tells Foley last week, Mick said if Cesaro won, he would get a title shot.  Foley disagrees with this, and says Sheamus almost had him.  Cesaro thought Foley was a man of his word.  Daniel tells Cesaro he believes he has been underutilized on Raw.

Foley gives us the title match, Cesaro Vs Rusev, now.

Next week, “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar will be here.  Also next week, Seth Rollins will call out “The Demon King”.

Cesaro Vs Rusev, for the United States Championship is now.

Rusev wins the match, when Sheamus comes out, and we get a ref bump, many close pin falls, but at the end, Cesaro was kicked in the head too many times.

Cesaro was pinned.

Rusev celebrates, but is greeted by a Reigns spear, to end the show.

Roman also gave us the peace out sign, which was funny.

The show ends here, with Dean Ambrose being a guest of the Stone Cold Podcast.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I loved the importance they gave the United States Championship tonight, and really, right now, this is the biggest Raw title.  So why not showcase it?

But unfortunately, this was another bad show by Raw.  I don’t get it, 3 weeks ago, we had one of the best shows of all-time, they showcased the superstars.  Smackdown has a chance to take another step forward this week.

Not even Mick Foley and Daniel Bryan could save it.  I did love the videos hyping up the big matches, but other than that, just a blah show.

Do you agree?  Leave me a word here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Impact Wrestling 8/4/16…EC3 Vs Bennett…BFG Playoffs Final

Tonight, we will see Mike Bennett Vs EC3, but we see an irate Drew Galloway from last week, upset that EC3 cost him his match.

We go back to EC3 and Mike Bennett, Mike tells EC3 that his Aunt Dixie set the cards up for Mike.  He defeated the legendary Jeff Hardy.  He beat Drew Galloway, with some thanks to Ethan.  So less than 2 hours, it will be EC3 Vs “The Miracle” once again.  Mike did something nobody else has been able to do, he beat the “unbeatable”, he pinned EC3.  Because he is “The Miracle”.

EC3 admitted he beat him, he always knew Mike had the talent, but at Slammiversary, he got his redemption.  Tonight, the rubber match is in effect, and we will see who is Bound for Glory.

Bennett told EC3 the two of them would always fight it out, but Bennett will always be number one, and EC3 will be somewhere behind.

EC3 says to bring your moose gel, bring your wife, bring it all, and he will beat them all, if he has to.  Mike assures Ethan that “The Miracle” can do it all by himself.  But Ethan, turn your back for a second, and that is what will cost him the match.

Here comes Moose, EC3 has his back to him, and “The Miracle” attacks Ethan.

Later tonight, those two settle their score.

Eli Drake is ready for his King of the Mountain Title match with “Cowboy” James Storm.  There is one Eli Drake.

Yeah!!

Rosemary back story here.

Sorry ’bout your damn luck.

“Cowboy” James Storm Vs Eli Drake, for King of the Mountain Title, now.

Storm wins the match, he keeps his gimmick, he keeps his music, and most importantly, he keeps his beer.  “Cowboy” wins with Last Call.

Here comes the World Heavyweight Champion, Lashley as we go to a break.

Lashley is not here to fight Storm, at least now.  He is here, champion to champion to congratulate Storm.

They shake hands, and Lashley tells him as champions they represent winning.  But it seems in other sports, everyone gets a trophy, but you don’t see Bobby holding up a NBA Trophy, right?

Storm looks at the World Title, he likes that.  5 years ago, he beat an Olympic athlete, it was a big party that night.  Storm beat that guy in 1:00.  Lashley is just a NCAA athlete, he can beat him in 30 seconds.

Lashley said he collects titles, and he wants Storm’s title.

Storm wants his.  He knows that Storm’s face is going to hurt because of all the punches Lashley will throw.  But his foot will hurt just by stomping Lashley’s face.

Lashley told Storm they can do things 2 different ways.  He will give him a choice, unlike what Eddie Edwards received.  Either he can hand his title over to Lashley.  Or, get his ass kicked, but still hand his title over to Lashley.

Storm loves kicking ass, bitch.

Down the road, those two will face off, Title Vs Title.

Maria comes over, when Allie was running her mouth to Gail.  Maria tells Gail she will never get her Knockout Title shot.  But she will face Allie, next.

Rosemary needs to tell Bram everything, she assures him she will, and it’s good to get everything out in the open.

Gail Kim Vs Allie is now.

Maria comes back out, she says she was distracted earlier.  Gail actually has two opponents tonight.  Allie and Sienna.

Gail wins the match when Sienna accidentally hits The Silencer on Allie, Gail pins her.

Brother Nero, you obsolete mule, “Broken” Matt Hardy said.  He cost Matt the match last week, just like when they won the Tag Titles in all of the universe, they came to TNA, and won Tag Team Titles, Brother Nero cost them Tag Titles.  Next, you will learn what you have to do, you obsolete mule.

Next week, Impact Wrestling is live, the main event is set.  Title Vs Title, Storm Vs Lashley.

Remy introduces us to “Broken” Matt Hardy.

Tonight, we find out the genesis of The Hardy Family, so come on out my obsolete mule.

Jeff comes out to the ring.

Crowd is chanting Jeff’s name.

Last week, you embarrassed The Hardy Brand.  You helped that 3rd Ethan Carter, how dare you?  Jeff and Matt were brothers, and they entered the wrestling world.  But the crowd loved Jeff more, because he was nothing more than a spot monkey.  Only reason Matt came to TNA was to win Tag Team Titles with Jeff, but he was selfish enough to cost them the Tag Titles.

Matt won the World Heavyweight Title, but Jeff cost him the title.

So they are on a quest to win Tag Titles again.  It starts tonight, and they will team together.  But Jeff does everything himself, and he will win by not jumping off the top rope.

So send the two “prospects” now.

J.T. Dunn and Chad Taylor is now.

Matt and Jeff win when Jeff went up top, but Matt tagged himself in, and hit a Twist of Fate on J.T. Dunn.

But the story of this match was “Broken” Matt Hardy ate a fan from the crowd.  Literally he bit his ear, just very weird.

Al Snow’s crew is in action, next.

The Tribula and Al Snow Vs Shera and Grado.

Oh boy!!

Shera and Grado win with Sky High.  Shera pins Al Snow.

The conclusion to the Rosemary saga is next.

Rosemary killed Johnny, Bram tried to run, but Decay is there, and kidnaps him.

More or less.

Last week, EC3 cost Drew Galloway his match, but EC3 is ready for this opportunity to beat Mike Bennett, and move on to Bound for Glory.  Mike Bennett is the man who pinned EC3, and his road to Bound for Glory goes through Ethan.

Earlier in the night, EC3 is attacked by Moose and Bennett.  Bring them all, EC3 will get through anyone to get to the World Heavyweight Title.

“The Fixer” will fix anything.

Next week, Title Vs Title, winner take all.  Lashley Vs Storm on a Live Impact Wrestling.

Our main event, Bennett Vs EC3, winner moves on to Bound for Glory and face World Heavyweight Champion is now.

EC3 wins with One Percenter, after Eddie Edwards came out to counter Moose.

A great match to end the show, EC3 is heading to Bound for Glory.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Tonight was a better show than last week.  I loved the main event, and we are now heading to the road to Bound for Glory.

I didn’t like the Hardy segment, with Matt chewing off some dude’s ear, I hope that doesn’t continue.

Looking forward to seeing Lashley Vs Storm next week, will EC3 interfere?

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Smackdown Live 8/2/16…American Alpha Debuts

Tonight, American Alpha make their Smackdown debut.  AJ Styles has a message for John Cena.

Smackdown Live is now.

We begin the show with a clip from last night’s Raw.  Shane tells Randy there will be repercussions, Brock will retaliate, and they ordered security for Orton.

Miz and Maryse approach the two bosses.  He is upset about the treatment he has had last week.  Daniel was not happy about drafting Miz, but he wanted to draft the IC Title.  So tonight, we will have a New Era Triple Threat match to determine the Number One Contender to the IC Title, and will face The Miz at Summerslam.

Dean Ambrose will address his people.

We are live in Nashville, Tennessee.  Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga welcome us to the show, and it’s time for The Champ to greet his people.

Dean welcomes us to the show.  He became the man by working hard every year, and he did it by beating his Shield brothers at Battleground.  Dean loves being at the top, and he remains to stay that way.

Which brings us to Dolph Ziggler.  “Mr. Booty Shaker”, and he asks for Ziggler to come to the ring.

Ziggler is a big fan of Dean, and they are both pretty similar.

Ambrose disagrees, and says Ziggy is all show, and Dean is all go.  He has worked so hard at this, nobody is going to take this title from him.

Ambrose came in from The Shield.  Ziggler came in as a male cheerleader.  You want to talk about scratching and crawling, you’re looking at him.

Is Ziggler done?  It’s true Ziggler has done that, but he doesn’t complain.  When people said he would not be champion material, he didn’t listen, he beat people, and proved everyone wrong.  Can Ziggler do that?  No, because he has an image problem.  Ziggler cares about what the fans think, what the office thinks.  He needs to worry about himself, because he will face the champ, but he will lose.  He will steal the show, and does what he does.  But Dean will do what he does, he is a winner.  Ziggler will steal the show, and he will lose.

Ziggler is a kid from Cleveland, and he was 5 years old, going to his first wrestling show, and knew he would be champion.  He is the guy who walked on to Kent State University, and won championships.  He is that guy who became a WWE superstar, was told he would never be champion, he wasn’t good enough, then next day, he said he was too good.

He is the guy who will walk into Brooklyn, and beat Ambrose’s ass, why?  Because he is that damn good.

Ambrose said he isn’t, he is the guy who thinks he is good, but he isn’t, and he will lose to Ambrose, at Summerslam.

He walks away, and Ziggler watches on, but the lights go out, and come back on and see Bray Wyatt.

BOOM!!  Sister Abigail.

Ziggler took Bray’s spot, he stole something from me.  So he proposes a match with Ziggler.  If he wins, he will prove how good he is, and march on to Summerslam.  But if he loses, Bray takes his spot at Summerslam for the WWE Title.

Come on Show Off, show us how good you are.

Follow The Buzzards.

Tonight, AJ Styles calls out John Cena.  We will also see the in-ring debut of American Alphas, and next, Triple Threat match to determine Number One Contender to IC Title.

Ziggler orders Shane and Daniel to make the match tonight against Bray Wyatt.  Nobody believes he can do it.

Triple Threat match is now, it’s Kalisto Vs Apollo Crews Vs Baron Corbin.  Winner gets The Miz, who is at ringside for the IC Title, at Summerslam.

Apollo Crews wins with a roll up of Kalisto, after they both took Baron Corbin out of the ring.

Corbin attacks Kalisto, and here comes Apollo.

The Miz hits Skull Crushing Finale on Crews, and Baron….END OF DAYS on Miz.

AJ Styles has a message for John Cena.

And next, Becky Lynch vs Eva Marie.

Oh, now we have the glorious Eva Marie intro.

There is no match, Eva has an “injury”.

Renee Young is at the Smackdown Control Center, Carmella gives us her thoughts, but Natalya is upset Renee is interviewing Carmella, and not Natalya.

Nattie is “Wrestling Royalty”, so she should be on top.

Carmella doesn’t like that, and challenges Natayla to a match.

The in-ring debut of American Alphas, next.

American Alphas Vs The Vaudevillains is now.

American Alpha picks up the win.  They willing, ready, and Gable.

They won with a Grand Applitude.

AJ Styles has a message to John Cena, next.

Video footage of John Cena all over the world.

“You don’t want none” says DMX, as AJ Styles heads to the ring.

AJ came out here for one reason, and one reason only, to talk about John Cena.

Enter John Cena.

So for days, AJ has said he has a message for Cena, so he is here…talk.

Typical John Cena, he is always thinking it’s about you.  He can do what he is best at doing, #BeatupJohnCena.

But AJ had a message for C-Nation.  But he is here, and Cena needs to hear it.

AJ was going to tell these people what his problem is.  He beat Cena up, he beat Cena in the ring, yet he is still here in the WWE.  He doesn’t want John here.  Styles knows exactly what his problem is.  He doesn’t want him here, he doesn’t belong in the ring with AJ.  He comes out, and does his song and dance, and he does it for the stupid people.  Nashville, Tennessee are the dumbest, because he knows.  One example, the kids.  They are the ones who buy merchandise, the parents are delusional enough to think all kids deserve trophies for participating.

Styles tells us you don’t eat dessert before dinner.  They don’t get trophies for participating in sports.  Where is his trophy?  He is phenomenal.

Cena tells him he is delusional, the fans do what they want, and even made up words to his song.

We get a Let’s go Cena/Cena Sucks.

Styles tells Cena he was the one who challenged any new era guy, and he beat him at Money in the Bank, so why is he here?

Because John loves doing what he does.  For 15 years, nothing has changed, even when people tell John when is he going to leave, and Cena tells them never.  This is his place, while AJ is kicking it on his day off tomorrow, Cena will be on a Late Night with Steven Cobert, wearing a weak ass blue suit, representing Smackdown Live.  AJ can leave tomorrow, and be okay, Cena?  This is his life.  So what are you doing here?

AJ was waiting for this response, so he issues a challenge, Cena Vs Styles, one on one, no Club, no nothing.  Just see who the better man is.

Cena accepts, and AJ tells John the best part of Summerslam?  The next Tuesday, on Smackdown Live, he comes out and says AJ is the better man.  And if he doesn’t, he’s a liar.  And if Cena does, then he is a loser.  Either way, AJ wins.

Mic dropped.

Cena vs Styles, one on one is set for Summerslam.

Tonight, Ziggler Vs Wyatt, with Dolph’s title match at Summerslam, on the line.

Oh glorious, it’s Fandango Vs Randy Orton.

Randy wins by DQ, when Brock Lesnar shows up, and lands a F-5.

Shane comes out, and security did not do their job.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw, Brock hitting a F-5.

During the commercial, he was escorted out of the building.  Paul Heyman meets up with all of this.

Daniel Bryan is on the phone, and is met up with Heath Slater, who just walked through the back door.

Daniel tells Heath that he gets a match next week, and his opponent is….Rhyno.

Who promptly gores Heath.

Renee Young is with the WWE Champion, Dean Ambrose.

Dean is confused over who he could face at Summerslam.  Anything can happen.  Ambrose believes Ziggler will be self-destructed.

Wyatt Vs Ziggler is next.

The new Smackdown announce woman interviews Randy Orton, wanting to know his thoughts on what happened to him, but he walks away.

Carmella Vs Natalya is now, only the match was a no contest.  Natalya attacked Carmella, and hits a Sharpshooter.

Daniel and Shane try to talk Ziggler out of the challenge, bit he isn’t buying it.

That match is next.

Ziggler wins the match, earlier in the match, he exposed the turnbuckle, then put Bray’s head onto it, and gave him a Superkick, to keep his title shot.

Ziggler screams at Bray this is the real Dolph.  If you want him, he’s right here.  Erik Rowan shows up, and attacks Ziggler.  Ambrose tries to help him, but Bray attacks Ambrose, and ends the show with Sister Abigail.

Follow The Buzzards.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A great show, much better than last week, and much better than Raw this week.

Do we have a Triple Threat match in the works, with Bray Wyatt added to the title match?  Where do we go from here?

AJ Styles faces Cena, again.  John will win, right?  Right?

Right?

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 8/1/16….HotLanta!!

Tonight, Monday Night Raw is in Atlanta, Georgia.  Seth Rollins and Finn Balor are in the house, these two men face off at Summerslam, for the coveted WWE Universal Championship.

“the Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar is also in the house, what are his thoughts about facing Randy Orton at Summerslam?

Raw is now.

The new entrance theme song is playing.

We are live in Atlanta, Georgia.  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

“The Boss” Sasha Banks kicks off the show.

In 3 weeks, rematch for the WWE Women’s Title, Banks Vs Charlotte.

The crowd chant she deserves it, and Sasha tells us it’s about time Raw kicks off with a Bank Statement, and she is the new Women’s Champion.

Last year, at NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn, people were talking about Bayley and “The Boss” because they stole the show.  But they didn’t just steal it, they owned the show.

And things stay the same, because at Summerslam, she plans on keeping her Women’s Title, from Charlotte.

Here comes Charlotte.

You tapped out chants are going on.

Charlotte is mad, she looks a little different, without the Women’s Championship, as Sasha reminds her.  Dana Brooke isn’t with Charlotte.

Charlotte doesn’t need Dana to beat her, she doesn’t need her father to beat her.  But at Summerslam, Charlotte will beat Sasha all by herself.  She was the very best for over 300 days.  Sasha was just a one night stand.

Charlotte is the daughter of Ric Flair, if it wasn’t for a one night stand, Charlotte wouldn’t even be here.

Chris Jericho comes out, telling us to be quiet.

Brilliant.

He tells Sasha to be quiet, and says she is a disrespectful punk.  Charlotte is royalty, look at her lineage.  She looks like a princess.  She may be Ric Flair’s daughter, but she has accomplished more than Ric Flair has ever done.  Who has Ric Flair beat?  But he knows Charlotte will beat her.

Now Jericho asks Sasha what makes her a “boss”?  She is the boss of only purple-haired snot nosed stupid idiots.

But Sasha isn’t a boss, she is a brat.

Enzo Amore comes out, and he is a certified G, and a bona fide stud.  And you can’t teach that.  Badda-Boom, realest guy in the room….HOW YA DOIN’?

Sasha, for real, how ya doin’, and he kisses her hand.

More brilliance from Enzo.  Enzo likes to do things on his own sometimes.  He is a G, and she is a BOSS, actually BUASS.

Enzo likes to make a certified bank, how ya doin?

Charlotte tells Enzo word is his life is described as one word….

Let me spell it out for ya….

Enzo talks about Jericho’s speak, comparing it to texting someone, and you see the three dots, but he never hits send.

Listen here, you hip-hop hobbit.  Jericho tells him you better watch it.

He said you better watch it.

Watch what?

IT!!

Watch Enzo’s mouth?  For him to speak is like washing his hiney before he poops.  He calls Jericho Bon Jovi.  You can’t turn back time, if he could, he would stop him from buying that horrible scarf.

How ya doin’?

It’s Mick Foley time.

Mick does care, and he may not be the BOSS, but he is their boss.  That man is Enzo Amore, he is a certified G, but they both wear leopard.

Both Enzo and Sasha appear on his new reality show “Holy Foley”, and Sasha set the bar high last week, by being the new Women’s Champion.  And we are going to have Charlotte and Sasha compete in the ring again, tonight.

It will be a mixed tag match of Jericho and Charlotte Vs Sasha and Enzo.  It won’t only appear right here, in Atlanta, Georgia.  But it will be right now.

Kevin Owens joins us at commentary.

Charlotte and Jericho won the match with a little help from Dana Brooke, and hits Natural Selection.

After the match, Jericho hits a Codebreaker, and here comes Big Cass to aid his buddy.

I am guessing we will lead to Enzo and Cass Vs Jericho and Owens match at Summerslam.  I have no issue with that.

We will hear from Finn Balor, tonight.

Braun Strowman is about to destroy Evan Anderhall, and he is doing this because he gets $1,000 for just showing up.  And he gets $5,000 if he wins.

Reverse Chokeslam, Evan picks up the $1,000 at least.

Steph and Mick segment.  She is in favor of the mixed tag match.

Mark Henry shows up.

Mark is excited about the Summer Olympics, and he is excited about “The New Era”, but he is hungry, and he is ready to open up more additions to The Hall of Pain.

Steph and Mick want him to be a mentor, and Mark interrupts this, saying she is wrong.  He is a 2-time World Champion, and he is a 2-time Olympic athlete.

Foley suggests he gets an US Title match against Rusev.

Golden Truth in action, tonight.

Golden Truth Vs Shining Stars is now.

Golden Truth loses, so Shining Stars wins, because Truth cares more about Pokemon Go than his own partner.

Oh boy, hour one has sucked tonight.  The last 2 hours needs to pick up.

Finn Balor is next.

Tonight, Brock Lesnar will speak, setting up his match with Randy Orton.

Michael Cole introduces us to Finn Balor.

Cole brings up Balor was a surprise choice as a first round pick in the draft, yet last week, he proved his value.  Balor starts to explain things, but here comes Seth Rollins.

Seth tells Cole to take a hike.  He wants us to give an ovation to Finn Balor.  Finn was a former NXT World Champion.  He wasn’t the first World Champion, but that was Rollins.  Finn was a first round pick in the draft, but Seth was the number one pick overall.  Finn was very admirable in beating Roman Reigns last week, but he beat him in his first night back from coming back with an injury.

Finn asks him if he is done, he is right about everything, but Finn will beat Seth at Summerslam, and being the first WWE Universal Champion.

That amuses Seth, that is like saying the Atlanta Braves are going to be World Series champions, it just won’t happen.

We get Tomahawk chants, and Seth tells us they horrible.  Finn had a great legacy in NXT, but he is the man.

Finn brings up everywhere he has wrestled, he has had guys think they were the man, but he beat them, and became the man.

Seth said they have never faced each other, why don’t he get a good seat to watch him face his buddy Sami Zayn later tonight.

Finn said they have had many similarities, but he never had anything handed to him like Seth had at Summerslam.

Rollins said he has never had anything handed to him, and Finn said the one thing he will have handed to him is when Finn kicks his ass.

Seth tries to attack him, but Finn counters with a kick.

Three weeks away, the first WWE universal Champion is crowned.  Rollins Vs Balor.

Tonight, New Day Vs Gallows and Anderson.  One member of New Day will be barred, but next, Mark Henry Vs Rusev for the United States Championship.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw, Balor kick Seth.

Tonight, Seth Vs Zayn.

It’s Lana in a white wedding dress, she and Rusev were married this past weekend.

Rusev Vs Henry for the US Title is now.

Rusev defeats Henry with an Accolade.  He tells us nobody can take the US Title away from him, and nobody can take Lana from him.

Enter Roman Reigns.

Rusev wants to leave, but Roman won’t let him.

Rusev starts the fight, but Roman finishes it off with a Superman Punch.

Nia Jax video is showing now.  She made her Raw debut last week, and she is in action, tonight.

Tomorrow night, on Smackdown Live, we will see the debut of American Alphas.  AJ Styles has a message for John Cena.

Darren Young Vs Titus O’ Neil is now.

Titus wins with some tights, rolling him up.

Titus tells Darren it’s not about being great, it’s about winning.

Steph gives Mick a gift, and Sheamus is irate about Foley giving Mark Henry an US Title match, and not Sheamus.  Cesaro comes in, and he tells us we don’t care about Sheamus.

Foley tells them that Cesaro has a questionable shoulder, and Sheamus hasn’t been in the game since cashing in Money in the Bank briefcase.  He tells both men to face off in the ring, and the winner will receive a future title shot.

Nia Jax is in action, next.

The Cruiserweight Division is coming to Raw.

Mr. Backlund is upset at Titus, he tells him he will knock his old ass out if he doesn’t shut up, Darren lays him out from behind.

Nia Jax will face Ariel Monroe, in the ring.

Nia wins with the Power Slam.

Byron interviews Nia, and asks her how it feels to compete in a Raw ring.  Nia goes after Ariel, and she tells Byron to ask her how it feels.

Tom Phillips is with Sami Zayn.

Sami knows Seth, they have battled over the years, but he has one weakness, Seth has a big mouth.  Just like the man he battled with in Kevin Owens.  He had a match of his life at Battleground, and he beat him.  Seth has something to prove?  Sami is going to make a statement.

New Day selects a fruit in the basket, it looks like Xavier lost by choosing a banana.

We are live in Atlanta, Georgia.

Brock Lesnar is here.

OHHHHH ATL, IT’S TIME TO STAND UP AND CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD FAMOUS 2-TIME TAG TEAM CHAMPS, AND FEEL THE POWER.

It’s a New Day….yes it is.

Last week, Gallows and Anderson attacked them from behind, so of course who filed a complaint against them?  Yup, the bald-headed freaks.  So they drew who would wrestle with fruit in a bag, and Atlanta’s own Xavier Woods drew the short end of the stick.  They were going to form a penis, with the banana and two peaches, but that wasn’t PG.

So here comes Gallows and Anderson, and we have our match.

New Day win when Gallows and Anderson turned their backs on Big E., and Big E. rolls up Anderson.

Here comes Xavier, but down goes Xavier.  Magic Killer, message is sent.

Xavier tries to fight back, but they lay him out too.

Moments ago, we see Gallows and Anderson lay out The new Day after a loss.

It’s Cesaro Vs Sheamus, now.

Cesaro wins with a Neutralizer, Brock Lesnar returns, tonight.

We get a fight between Cesaro Sheamus, and Heath Slater interrupts the fight, with a returning Jinder Mahal.

Mick Foley comes out, informs both men they aren’t a part of Raw roster.  But makes a match of Jinder Vs Slater, winner gets a contract from Raw.

Heath refuses, but Jinder gives him a kick for the pinfall victory.

Welcome back to Raw, Jinder Mahal.

Earlier tonight, Cass and Sasha faced Jericho and Charlotte, with Charlotte and Jericho winning.

Tom Phillips is with Jericho.  He tells Tom that his scarf was $750, and he has someone watching his back, in case Cass comes out.

Tom wanted to know who, but Chris made up a name.  Kevin Owens volunteers his services.

Rollins Vs Zayn is next.

Rollins wins the match with a Pedigree.  Good match here that showcased both men.

Paul Heyman comes out, and we will hear from Brock Lesnar, next.

American Alpha debut tomorrow night on Smackdown Live.

Next week, Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs will guest host Raw.

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman.  And I know for the last 3 hours, we have been waiting on the edge of the seats waiting, salivating to see the most box office attraction in combat sports to come out so we can worship.  Ladies and gentlemen, the beast incarnant, and the Viper Slayer, Brock Lesnar.

In 3 weeks, it will be Randy Orton Vs Brock Lesnar, at Summerslam.

Ladies and gentlemen, on Sunday night, August 24th, live at the Barclay Center, in WWE Network, his client Brock Lesnar will entertain you.  Did Paul Heyman just advocate his client Brock Lesnar will do all things of entertain us?  Yes, because Brock has a different form of entertainment than what they run in WWE.  Brock is violent, and he can’t say that word.  But he can say whatever he wants, because Brock Lesnar is standing right next to him.  Brock isn’t here to cement his stamp of the new era, or kiss Mick Foley’s ass.  He is here to take out Smackdown Live’s own Randy Orton.

Randy is a third generation superstar, they say he is one step away from a RKO.  They say he is one RKo away from shocking the world, just like Brock shocked the world by ending the Wrestlemania steak of The Undertaker.

How does Randy Orton get these thoughts in the head?  Maybe it’s the voices he hears?  One of those voices might tell Randy he will be taken to Suplex City, and get his ass kicked.  If he hears any other voices, that is full of, malarkey.

Let’s just say this again, Brock Lesnar will kick your ass.  Randy doesn’t have a chance to win, so let’s just say Randy needs to survive.  Because he might not go to the hospital, or maybe he will get a chance to wrestle before the end of 2016.  How can he do that?  One RKO.  Because Randy won’t hit a RKO, he isn’t man enough to hit a RKO.

And just like that, Orton hits a RKO.

He tells Heyman he can do it, and runs off into the crowd, when Foley and Stephanie come out with security.

Orton does his awesome “Legend Killer” pose, as we end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The show was okay, certainly not as good as last week, but the ending was fantastic.  And we are on the way to showcase Lesnar vs Orton.  I can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow, when Orton speaks.  Will we see Lesnar show up?  RKO out of nowhere will give you a ticket to Viperville, anytime.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE NXT 7/27/16…Number One Contender On The Line

We are at Full Sail University, in Orlando, Florida.  NXT Wrestling is now.

“The King of Strong Style” kicks off the show.

Tom Phillips and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.  Nakamura will face Wesley Blake, one on one.

Blake told Murphy he is going to show everyone he was the one carrying Blake and Murphy.  Murphy is in action too.

Nakamura wins the match after kicking Blake in the head with Shin-Sa-Sa.

Now comes the GM William Regal.

Regal congratulates Shinsuke Nakamura.  At the next NXT:  Takeover, it will be Samoa Joe defending his World Title against Nakamura, Saturday, August 20th.

Billie Kay will wrestle against Santana Garrett.

Billie wins her first NXT match with a big boot.

Footage from Bayley showing up for her first WWE match, teaming up with Sasha Banks at Battleground, defeating Charlotte and Dana Brooke.

Bayley is with Regal.  She wants her rematch at Aksuna, and she wants it at Brooklyn, where she first won her Championship.

Regal agrees, and if Asuka agrees, they will have a contract signing.

Kota Ibushi Vs Buddy Murphy, tonight.

But next, TM61 is in action.

TM61 heads to the ring, and will face Rob Ryson and Adrian Nails.

TM61 wins the match with Thunder Valley.  I like that finisher.

We see the footage last month when Austin Aries attacked No Way Jose.

2 weeks ago, we see No Way Jose went after Aries, he is in action, next.

Hideo Itami is coming back.  He returns, next week.

No Way Jose in action, against Steve Cutler.

Jose wins with the Cobra Clutch Slam.

Jose tells Aries all he tried to do was be encouraging to him, show some good vibes he has been brewing here in WWE.  But he showed the fire Jose has, and Aries showed us the coward he is.

The next time you see Jose, there won’t be no running, no stomping, because he will whoop some ass.

Next, Kota Ibushi Vs Buddy Murphy.

Our main event, Ibushi Vs Murphy is up now.

Ibushi wins with the Sit-Down Powerbomb, good match here.  This was Ibushi’s first NXT victory.

Cathy Kelley wants to hear thoughts from the NXT World Champion Samoa Joe, about his World Title match at Takeover.  Joe feels disrespected, and said he will handle this, and walks away.

Next week, Bobby Roode is in action.

Here comes Joe.

Upon his arrival here, the GM William Regal decided Joe has to defend his Championship at NXT Takeover, against Shinsuke Nakamura.

Unfortunately due to not consulting with Joe, that match won’t happen.

Nakamura has done thing to earn that title shot.  So he won’t be facing Shinsuke Nakamura.

Here comes Regal.

Joe may bt the champion, but Regal is the GM.  His decision is final.

Joe has to go through everyone to get a title show at this, but Nakamura has not done that.  Joe suggests that they go to the back, and discuss opponents Joe can face at NXT Takeover, but he must approve it.

Regal told him if he feels that way, he can forfeit the title right now.

Joe will have the match, but he will decimate him, like he did to Balor.  And if he sees him first, he may do it early.

Nakamura comes out, and the show ends with both men facing off.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The two main matches are set for NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn, with Joe Vs Nakamura and Bayley Vs Asuka.

Tonight was a solid show, showcasing the new set of talent coming into NXT, and next week will be my first chance to see Bobby Roode in the ring in NXT.

What were your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Impact Wrestling 7/28/16…BFG Playoff Semi-Finals

Tonight, BFG Playoffs continue, with “Broken” Matt Hardy facing EC3, and Drew Galloway Vs “The Miracle” Mike Bennett.  The winner will face Lashley, at Bound for Glory.

Impact Wrestling is now.

“Broken” Matt Hardy comes to the ring to kick off the show.

He only has a handful of people he cares about.  Rebecca, Maxell, Senor Benjamin, and his devotees.  He used to care about his brother, “Mule” Jeff Hardy, who has become obsolete.

He order him to come to the ring.

Jeff is Matt’s money-making “mule” because every cent he has earned goes to Matt.  And tonight, he moves one step closer to being World Heavyweight Champion, and he has to face that inhibin EC3.  All his “obsolete” brother has to do is whatever it takes for that to happen.

Jeff asks Matt if he’s so great, then why is he asking him to do those things.  He can beat EC3 by himself.

Nobody says no to him.  His wife doesn’t say no.  His son Maxell never says no to him.  Senor Benjamin never says no to him.

Ladies and gentlemen…EC3.

Matt is making weird sounds, and EC3 tells “Brother” Matt, he knew he would come.

EC3 makes some facial expressions.

Nothing will stop EC3 from kicking his ass, and sending him back to Hardy House of Horrors.

EC3 tells us this isn’t “Brother” Nero, this is Jeff Hardy.  He is a relevant creature.  He tells jeff he has nothing against him, but if he gets involved, he will have EC3 after him.

Now Matt threatens to eat his cat.

Those are words, EC3 Vs Matt is now.

There was a hammer thrown in, Jeff was the one who slid it in, but EC3 prevailed with a One Percenter, and picks up the win.

EC3 advances to the finals, next week.

Maria and Allie approaches Madison Rayne.  She said that she has been impressed with what Madison Rayne did last week with Gail Kim.

Madison did this for herself.  Gail deserves Hall of Fame, but Madison was, and still is “Queen Bee”, so what will Maria do for Madison when she beats Gail, tonight?

We will have to see if it happens.

Gail Vs Madison is next.

Jeff leaves the building, but Matt is upset.  This will go punished.  Jeff dares him to punish Jeff.  Matt tells him that when you lose something so dear, you learn to love something new.

What?

Gail Kim Vs Madison Rayne is now.

Eat Defeat, Gail Kim defeats Madison Rayne.

Mike Bennett is with Moose.

We are looking at the newest member of TNA roster.  We are looking at the man with complete destruction.  Now, we are looking at Mike Bennett.

Dixie seems threatened by him, why Dixie?  He makes her money.  He beat EC3’s undefeated streak.  Tonight, he takes care of Drew Galloway, and is one step closer from being World Heavyweight Champion.  And Lashley, keep that title warm, because he will take it from him.

Moose warns Lashley he will take care of him in any way, no matter who stands in his way.

Rosemarie meets up with Bram in the woods, and we get a flashback video of Rosemarie’s childhood.

She found her cat in the trash, what a horrible mother.

Bram doesn’t know what he got himself into.

She brought Bram to tell him what happened in the barn.

Moose’s TNA in-ring debut is now.

He’s facing David Star.

Moose wins with the Game Breaker, a lariat clothesline.

What we just witness was the most dominant, the most destructive, and the baddest man in professional wrestling…

Here comes the World Heavyweight Champion, and the current X-Division Champion, Lashley.  He’s ready to fight.

Mike is trying to play peace maker here, between the two men.  This is Lashley, and this is the baddest man on the planet.  Is this a match we want to see?  Lashley Vs Moose?

This match won’t happen right now.  Bennett has a match to prepare for later tonight, in the BFG Playoffs, and he needs him to watch Mike’s back.

One day Moose, your mommy will let you come out, and play.  You don’t want this.

But everyone wants what Lashley has, the World Title and the X-Division Title.  But he wants all of the gold, if there is a singles title, he wants it.

Here comes DJ Z, we have our X-Division Title match?

Z isn’t here to stop Lashley, but he is out here to fight Lashley.  He has been in the X-Division for 5 years.  Lashley is dominating, but he isn’t exactly a fit in the X-Division.  So he is out here to fight Lashley, and wants a title match now.

Lashley asks Z if he doesn’t fit the X-Division?  He can’t do the things Z does?  Well, Z can’t do what Lashley does.  He picks any match, and Lashley will beat him.

A ladder match, for the X-Division title is next.

Z gave it a fight, but Lashley wins the match, and keeps his X-Division Title.

EC3 tells Drew Galloway his prediction is halfway true.  Drew puts EC3 over to say he earned that win with Hardy.  Drew is concerned with Moose in Bennett’s corner.  Ethan offers to watch his back, and Drew denies it.  Telling him the next time he wants to see EC3 is in the ring for the BFG Finals.

Tonight, Galloway Vs Bennett.

More video from Bram and Rosemarie.

“Johnny” was her true love, but he never showed up.

Bram is here for Rosemarie.  But she has to take him at the exact spot, so the ghost can tell the story.

Fact of Life, with Eli Drake.

Eli has something on his mind right now.  Did he hear earlier that Lashley said he has beaten everybody in TNA has been beat by him?  Let me talk to you, you’re looking at the King of the Mountain Champion.  His name is Eli Drake.

But Bobby, while you’re going around looking at title, like this is Pokemon Go.  Eli isn’t playing any games.  He likes the idea of being the only World Heavyweight Champion, X-Division Champion, and King of the Mountain Champion all at the same time, and nobody can….

Sorry ‘Bout Your Damn Luck!!

Here comes “Cowboy” James Storm.

Eli was looking for contenders, not a drunk.

Storm is okay being drunk, because if he was single, he’d be whooping his ass.

Storm said the two of them are outside, looking in.  Because they lost their matches last week.  But Eli holds the golden ticket.  He is the King of the Mountain Champion, and can get a World Title shot.

He offers Storm another beer, but Eli declined, saying he drinks water.  Storm kicks it, and wants another King of the Mountain Title shot.

Eli declines, but Storm talks about his mother.

Dummy….yeah.

If Storm wants another title shot, Eli doesn’t want Storm to have another beer again.  He doesn’t want to see the scooter, he doesn’t want to hear the entrance theme.  Maybe they can do it.

Storms drinks the beer, drinks another beer, and agrees to the deal.

Eli said he’d like to wish him luck, but he’s going to need it.

Dummy, yeah.

Eli tries to club Storm with the title, but James stops him.  Eli kicks him, and tells him he will lose again, and that’s a fact of life.

Titus tells us he can “fix” things.  Shera and Grado want the money to get Titus to “fix” things.

Tonight, Mike Bennett Vs Drew Galloway in the BFG Playoffs.

We break to the camera, Decay and Bromans are fighting.  World Tag Team Championship match, in a Monster’s Ball match is next.

Decay win the match when Abyss chokeslams Robbie into the barbed wire.

The action was mostly in the ring.

Bennett Vs Galloway is next.

Bennett wins the match when Moose came in to attack Galloway, and EC3 comes out to stop him.  Only he whacked Drew with a kendo shot, and Bennett hits the MIP to win, and advance to the finals.

Next week, it’s EC3 Vs Bennett, winner faces Lashley at BFG.

We end the show with the celebration.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The show was okay.  I enjoyed the focus of the 2 main matches, but very disappointed they gave Drew and Mike just 10 minutes to do this match.  Main events need to be a bit longer, when you’re talking about these two.

Just a weird thing going with Rosemary.  I guess we will see what happens next week.

I didn’t care about The Monster’s Ball match, sorry.

I did like the Storm and Drake segment, and I felt that DJ Z looked good against the World Champ.  Still want to see Moose Vs Lashley, but who is the heel here?

This just could have been a better show.  What were your thoughts on it?  Send them to me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Special Announcement

A few weeks ago, Anthony Joki asked me if I wanted to contribute with his blog at http://Foreverrebuilding.com.  So I agreed to it, and posted my first article yesterday.  Please check it out at the site.  With Smackdown and Raw now separate brands, we came up with the title of Smackdown Vs Raw at the Ringside Seats section.  I want you to check it out, a link is also found on the blog roll here.  There is more news coming soon, and I truly love this opportunity.  The site covers all Cleveland sports too, and has podcasts going.  It’s worth a listen, keep checking, and I will keep you updated.

WWE Smackdown Live 7/26/16…A New Era Has Begun

A new theme, a new attitude, and my 1,000th post.  Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Smackdown Live!!

We are live, in First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York.

Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon welcome us to the show.  We have the Smackdown superstars surround the ring.

They introduce us to the WWE Champion, Dean Ambrose.

Dean wants to fight, so he wants to know who will step up, and be the opponent at Summerslam.

Daniel informs us we will have a 6 Pack Challenge tonight, to determine who Dean faces at Summerslam.

The 6 men are….

John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Dolph Ziggler, Baron Corbin, AJ Styles, and the 6th spot is open to anyone.

The 6th man will be the winner of a Battle Royal.  And that is next.

Apollo Crews picks up the win, last eliminating Kane, after Kane eliminates Zack Ryder and Kalisto.

I love this, because Smackdown gives Apollo the best chance to shine.

He advances to the 6-Pack Challenge, and Renee Young gets some word from Apollo.

He is happy, but he won’t celebrate, until he wins the main event and heads to Summerslam.

Number One Contender 6-Pack Challenge is tonight.

Next, it’s Becky Lynch Vs Natalya, brought to you by Mountain Dew….Do The Dew.

Shelton Benjamin is returning to Smackdown.

Awesome.

Brock Lesnar will be on Raw next Monday.

For years, Dolph Ziggler has tried to break that glass ceiling.  Ziggler was a 5-year-old from Cleveland who went to his first Wrestling show, and knew he would do this growing up, and steal the show.  But along the way, he has gotten lost.  That ends tonight, after the show ends, and Ziggler is on his way to Summerslam.

Natalya Vs Becky Lynch is now.

Becky Lynch picks up the win, with the Disarmer, making Natalya tap out.

Becky is excited about her win, but here comes Alexa Bliss.

She calls herself the biggest rising star on Smackdown, and she is the personification of a new era.

Naomi comes out, tells us Alexa hasn’t even set foot in the WWE ring, so she needs to step aside.

Here comes Carmella.  Her name is Carmella, and she is the Queen of Statin Island.

But now comes Eva Marie, with the superstar treatment, which is hilarious.

Our women wrestlers in the Smackdown division.

6-Pack Challenge match is tonight.

The Miz is coming out, next.

Baron Corbin isn’t winning this match for anyone, but himself.

The Miz is in the ring, ready for Miz TV.

Maryse introduces us to her husband, The must-see IC Champion, The Miz.

Tonight, his guest is “The Legend Killer”, and through Evolution, he has built a legacy.  Ladies and gentlemen, his guest is none other than The Miz.

And we get an interview with The Miz interviewing….The Miz.

He has it all, the looks, the fame, the wife, the Intercontinental Championship.

He is what we aren’t, successful.

Here comes Randy Orton.

Randy heard Miz’s monologue, and he just felt like he had to come out.

Miz wanted to know why Randy came out here, when he has to face “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar.

Brock is a legend, and Randy is a legend killer.  He knows he is going to Suplex City, but all it takes is one RKO, and he can take him to Viperville.

Miz tells Orton that he hasn’t been in the ring for 9 months, his first match back could be his last.

Orton tells him that he hasn’t been in the ring for 9 months, but he thought he could get his first match against The Intercontinental Champion, here in Buffalo, New York.

How about no.  He can’t just get in the ring, and compete for the IC Title.

Orton doesn’t care about the title tonight, just a friendly competition in the ring, between friends.

Miz reminds Orton he beat him for the WWE Championship, back when they were friends.

Orton asks Miz if he’s scared to get his ass kicked in front of his pretty wife.  He wants to know, who plays the catcher, and who pitches between the two of them.

Maryse accepts the challenge.

We are 4 weeks away from Smackdown, to see Orton Vs Lesnar.  But now, Orton Vs Miz.

Orton beats The Miz with 2 RKOs.

Sweet!!

Tonight, 6-Pack Challenge with the winner facing Ambrose at Summerslam.

We are at The First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York.

American Alpha video is playing now.

They will make their Smackdown debut next week.

Heath Slater comes to the ring, decks someone in the ring, and grabs a mic.

He’s been thinking a little bit.  How did Heath Slater not get drafted to Raw, or Smackdown Live.  There must be a mistake here.

So how about we add Heath to the main event, and make the 6-Pack Challenge to the Magnificent Seven Challenge.

Sign Heath Slater.

Shane comes out, he says he isn’t a part of Smackdown, so how about he sends them a resume.

Heath tells him to go to WWE Network, you see his reume.  The integral part of NEXUS, The Corre, One Man Band Babay!! 3MB, Social Outcasts.  He is a 3-time Tag Team Champion, and if he gives him a chance, Heath can do more.  Just put him in the main event.

Shane is looking at the hottest free agent, and it’s Rhyno.

GORE!!!!

AJ Styles has some choice words for the new authority.  AJ should go to the main event, but he is in the ring with 5 other men.  But he will do what he does best, beat everyone, and beat up John Cena.

Bray Wyatt has his promo, change is always inevitable, but some things stay the same.  He is Bray Wyatt, the eater of worlds.  Soon, all 5 men will fall, and soon he truly will have the world at his hands.

Buffalo….I’m here.

Ready for the main event.

Bray Wyatt Vs AJ Styles Vs Baron Corbin Vs Dolph Ziggler Vs Apollo Crews Vs John Cena.  6-Pack Challenge is now.

Dolph Ziggler won the 6-Pack Challenge, pinning AJ Styles.  Another upset here this week.

Ziggler Vs Ambrose, at Summerslam, for the WWE Championship.

Ziggler hits a Superkick through the glass ceiling.

And now here comes Dean Ambrose.

The two men face off, and Daniel Bryan comes out to raise both arms.

Here Comes The Money!!

Shane McMahon congratulates both men.

Ambrose Vs Ziggler, Summerslam.  Show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Tonight was a good show, but if we hadn’t seen Raw last night, it would have been better.

Nothing against this crew, because everyone worked hard.  The authority figures were minimal, more action, but last night was just epic.

But tonight was another good start.

The surprise was Dolph Ziggler getting the nod in the main event.  I say why not?  He is clearly a very good wrestler, just needs that extra push to get him on top.  I hope this is a start for him.

Good to see Orton back in the ring too, and his match with Miz was awesome, because it told a very effective story.  RKO out of nowhere.

I also liked the women’s part in this, setting the tone for what should be another Championship for the women’s division, and my gawd, Eva Marie’s entrance was classic.  It was cheesy, and she played it perfectly, with the announcer guy dubbing her intro.

Shelton Benjamin is coming back, and American Alpha debuts the next week.

Overall, a fun show tonight.  What were your thoughts?  Send them to me here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/25/16….A New Era has Begun

A new entrance theme tonight, and this feels new.  Will we be saying the same thing after 3 hours tonight?

Raw is now.

A new broadcast table, like WCW Nitro was back in the day.  Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

We are live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon welcome us to the show, and introduce the entire Raw roster.

Mick will be working hand in hand with every worker on Raw, to give us the best opportunity to succeed.

Stephanie now brings the attention to Roman Reigns dropping the ball last night.

Seth Rollins had it in the bag, and as far as she is concerned, he isn’t just a good guy, he isn’t a bad guy, he is just a loser.

WWE fans deserve a World Champion, the world deserves a World Champion, and that is what we will get.

Foley announces tonight, there will be 2 Fatal 4-Way matches.  The 2 winners will face each other tonight in the main event, and the winner of that match faces Seth Rollins at Summerslam, to become the new WWE Universal Champion.

The 8 men announced are Sami Zayn, Sheamus, Chris Jericho, Cesaro, Roman Reigns, Rusev, Kevin Owens, and Finn Balor.

And of equal importance, the WWE Women’s Champion has remained on Raw.  So Charlotte, step forward.

She did lose last night, when she tapped out to Sasha Banks.  And that is why she is defending the WWE Women’s Championship, and her opponent is “The Boss” Sasha Banks.

The first Fatal 4-way match starts now.

Our first Fatal 4-Way match is Rusev Vs Cesaro Vs Owens Vs Balor.

Balor wins the match with a Coup De Gras, pinning Rusev.  A great match here, and he advances to the main event, later tonight.

Tonight, it’s a New Day Celebration, for being the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champions.

Nia Jaz debuts on Raw, next.

Nia Jaz is here to crush somebody, and she does.

Is her name Britt Baker?  Does it matter?  Nia destroyed her.

Sasha Banks is getting ready for her title match.  Golden Truth are playing Pokemon Go.

Tom Phillips catches up with Sasha.

She thrives pressure, and tonight she finally gets to expose her.  She has had a dream of being Women’s Champion since she was 10 years old, and tonight that dream will become a reality.  Tonight, it’s about to be lit.

Our next Fatal 4-Way is next.

“The Beast” is back next week on Raw.

Our second Fatal 4-Way match is now.

Chris Jericho Vs Sami Zayn Vs Sheamus Vs Roman Reigns.

Reigns wins the match with spearing Jericho.

Another good match, but we know where this is going, right?

Balor Vs Reigns, later tonight.

The New Day’s Celebration is next.

OHHHHHHH PITTSBURGH!!  DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR, GET UP ON YOUR FEET, AND CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD-FAMOUS 2-TIME WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!

IT’S A NEW DAY, YES IT IS!!

So their match last night at Battleground didn’t go as they planned, but for the past 337 days, The New Day has been your WWE Tag Team Champions!!

337 days ago, Jennifer Garner and Gwen Stefani were married, not to each other.

337 days ago Booty-O’s was a dream, but now at FYE, it’s an actual cereal.

Brought to you by Booty-O’s, they make sure you’re not booty.

We see a video of New Day.

New Day Rocks!!

That was a huge package.

In order to honor this glorious event, with this crowd, they should choose one lucky fan to be an honorary member of New Day.

But who?

They choose a big dude with a Booty-O’s T-shirt.

His name is Sonny Boy.

They aren’t asking for a nickname, what is his real name?

Sonny Boy.

His job is to celebrate with them, because….

New Day Rocks.

Here comes Gallows and Anderson.

Magic Killer on Big E.

Now they are taunting Sonny Boy.

Coming up next, the return of Neville.

Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show again.  Tonight, it’s Balor Vs Reigns, winner faces Rollins at Summerslam.  The winner becomes the first WWE Universal Champion.

Neville will now face “Mr. Irrelevant” Curtis Axel.

Neville wins with Red Arrow, great to see him back.

Up next, brought to you by Mountain Dew….Do the Dew.  WWE Women’s Championship on the line, Charlotte Vs “The Boss” Sasha Banks.

Mr. Backlund is giving Darren Young some advice.  Golden Truth interrupts, you don’t interrupt Mr. Backlund.

Finn Balor video is playing now.

Tonight, Balor Vs Reigns, with the winner facing Seth Rollins at Summerslam to become the first WWE Universal Champion.

Charlotte is with Tom Phillips.  Pressure is defending the Women’s Championship every night, and taking women’s wrestling another level.  Tonight, Sasha will be by herself, and Charlotte will ruin her dream, you can bank on that.

Sasha Banks in what will go down as the best Women’s match in the last year defeated Charlotte with the Bank Statement.

What a moment.

Byron tells us Sasha is the very first Women’s Champion of the new era.

What does this moment mean to her?

Crowd chanting she still got it, and she is looking around.

Sasha did it!!

This has been a dream since she was 10 years old.  She has been telling people she is the best.  Now this proves she is the best.  It’s a new era, it’s the Era Of “The Boss”.  It’s a new era of wrestling.

Crowd is chanting Sasha.

And she promises us every time she is in the ring, she is the best, and there is only one “Boss” and that is Sasha.

Our main event, still is Balor Vs Reigns.

Our next match is Braun Strowman Vs James Ellsworth.

Byron interviews James, and he more or less says he has a chance.

Next!!

Braun wins with the Reverse Chokeslam.

Video of Roman Empire is being shown.  I am sure the arena right now is booing.

More hunting with Golden Truth.

Enzo and Cass come out.

His name is Enzo Amore, and he is a bonafide stud, and you can’t teach that.  This guy right here is Big Cass.  He is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.

Badda Boom, realest guys in the room, HOW YA DOIN’?

They like things Raw.

And they are going to face The Shining Stars, it seems.

There is only one word to describe Shining Stars, and he can spell it out for ya….

S.A.W.F.T…..

Golden Truth come out to distract Primo, and Cass gave him the big boot.

Our main event, Balor Vs Reigns is next.  Both men wished each other luck.

Next week, “The Beast” Brock Lesnar returns.

Balor Vs Reigns is now.

Balor wins the match with Coup De Gras.  Holy crap, we are going to see Rollins Vs Balor at Summerslam.

I never, ever would have guessed that.  What a moment.

Todd Phillips asks Reigns for his thoughts.  He said he hopes Finn beats Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship, because he has a tremendous amount of respect for him, and hopes he faces him again.

Raw ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

By far the best Raw of the year, and honestly, it might be the best Raw I have ever seen.  This felt like a brand new era, with Sasha winning Women’s Title, and we will get to see Balor Vs Rollins at Summerslam.  Incredible.

I can’t stand that title name though, and I am sure I won’t like the championship look, since I am not a fan of the current WWE Championship look.  But we will see.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Smackdown better serve notice tomorrow night, Raw certainly set the bar high.

Tonight, 6-man tag match of The New Day Vs The Wyatt Family.

Last night of the Wyatts teaming together, as Strowman was drafted on Raw, and other Wyatts are on Smackdown.

Andrea DeMarco has Zack Ryder backstage.

What are his chances for tonight’s US Title match?

He knows his chances aren’t good, but he has shocked the world before, and he will do it again.  Woo Woo Woo….You Know it.

The United States Title could be coming to Smackdown.

Tonight, both Mick Foley and Daniel Bryan will be a part of The Social Media Lounge.

Tonight, Dana Brooke and Charlotte will face Sasha Banks a mystery partner.

The awesome Sami Zayn Vs Kevin Owens preview is being shown now.

Cesaro joins the panel to offer some analysis of this match.  He just hopes they settle things, because they both cost him the IC Title twice against The Miz.

Cesaro wants to wrestle, and not be here to talk.

Who is going to win their match tonight?  Kevin Owens.

Coming up next, Foley and Bryan talk.

Questions from the WWE Universe.

An interesting piece on this, we will see what happens this coming week between the two shows.

The Miz Vs Darren Young for the IC Title tonight.

Earlier today, Bob Backlund is working out with Darren Young.

On the other side, The Miz is getting some compliments from his wife, Maryse.

The Usos Vs Breezango is next.

In 4 weeks, it will be Orton Vs Lesnar, at Summerslam.  Tonight, at Battleground, Randy Orton returns to be a guest of The Highlight Reel.

Mauro Ranallo and Byron Saxton gives us The Usos Vs Breezango.

Breezango picks up the upset win, when Breeze put his knees up, blocks Jimmy’s flight, and rolled him up.

I love the seriousness tonight of Breezango.

Video of the Triple Threat match for tonight’s main event.

WWE Battleground begins next.

I love this video, and of course tonight’s main event sets the tone for everything.  Members of The Shield collide.  Ambrose Vs Rollins Vs Reigns, for the WWE Championship.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

We kick the night off with the women’s tag match.

Charlotte and Dana Brooke Vs Sasha Banks and a mystery partner.

Sasha’s partner is…..

BAYLEY!!!!

Sasha and Bayley win when Sasha makes Charlotte tap out to the Bank Statement.

A great way to start the show.

Awwwww they are hugging.  Hug Life.

Tonight, 6-man tag match of New Day Vs The Wyatt Family, and that’s now.

The Wyatts won the match when Bray pinned Xavier with Sister Abigail.

Match started slow, but picked up at the end.  Highlight was Xavier fighting his fears, and went after Bray.

Roman Reigns went to Twitter this week.

Rusev Vs Zack Ryder for US Championship is now.

The United States Title stays on Raw, when Rusev makes Ryder tap out to The Accolade.

After the match, Rusev attacks Ryder some more, but Mojo Rawley comes over, and checks on his Hype Bro teammate.

Stephanie and Mick are being greeted by Seth Rollins.

Mick reminds Seth he has a chance to bring back the WWE Title to Monday Night Raw.

Seth is still as confident as ever.

Tonight is about Seth bringing back the WWE Title for himself.

Seth is ready for tonight.

Owens Vs Zayn is now.

Wow, Zayn picks up his biggest win of his career, hitting 2 Helluva kicks on Owens, and picking up the win.

By far, the best match of the night.  Both men will be on Raw tomorrow.  Not sure what will happen.

The Battleground Kick-Off panel are being shown now.

Now comes Natalya Vs Becky Lynch, another match I want to see.

Natalya picks up the win with a Sharpshooter.  This felt more or less like a squash, but with both of them heading to Smackdown there will be more.

Shane and Daniel are giving Ambrose a pep talk.  I can’t wait to see this match.

WWE Summerslam is on August 21st, we will see Orton Vs Brock.

IT’S TIME TO MAKE DARREN YOUNG GREAT AGAIN!!

Young Vs The Miz for the IC Title.

I think Darren wins by Countout.  Miz tried to leave, Backlund got into his face, Maryse slaps Bob, and Darren gave Miz a Crossface Chicken Wing after the match.  And then he looks at his hands.

Moving on.

Cena, Enzo, and Cass Vs The Club is now.

Cena, Enzo, and Cass beat The Club when Cena hits a Top Rope AA on AJ Styles.

A good match here, and Enzo was the star with his mic skills before the match.

Highlight Reel time!!

Chris is telling us this is the biggest Highlight Reel in WWE history.  Because his guest is returning to the WWE for the first time in 9 months.  He will take on “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar at Summerslam, and he is his guest on The Highlight Reel, Randy Orton.

Smackdown’s newest addition, I might add.

Orton is getting a hero welcome here in D.C.

For 9 months, Orton has enjoyed time with his wife and kids.  But just going down the ramp, he sensed something was missing, it was the fans.  D.C. has Orton in such a good mood, he doesn’t mind sharing the ring with Jericho.

Big RKO chants going right now.

Instead of insulting Jericho, Orton should be thanking him for putting him on the show with the Best In The World at what he does.  Oh yeah, this is a moment for Orton, and he should be thanking him, because he is on another level now.

Orton threatens Jericho he can hit a RKO, out of nowhere.

Jericho tells him he can get a Codebreaker out of nowhere.

For the last 9 months, so much has happened.  There is now a brand extension.  Orton is on Smackdown, with the GM being Daniel Bryan.  Chris is on Raw, with the GM being Mick Foley, who is under the tutelege of the greatest woman in the history of WWE, Stephanie McMahon.

The WWE Champion is a barbarian, who cost him to recieve 69 stitches.  But this isn’t about Jericho, this is about Orton.  Chris has a gift for Randy, it’s the gift of Jericho.  Drink it in, man.

Orton calls Jericho “Ellen” and Jericho tells him Brock has laid destruction for quite a few years, and we see video proof of that.

Suplex after Suplex.  The human body isn’t developed to bend like that.  Randy knows this, the two joined WWE together.  But they haven’t matched up, so is Randy scared?  Chris thinks so.

What made Randy decide to face Brock?

Randy was gone for 9 months, and he wanted to face the biggest and baddest dude on the planet, and that was Brock.  How epic would it have looked if Randy spent 9 months off the mend, and he faced Fandango?

Jericho never liked Orton, but he is going to be honest with him.  Brock is going to kick Randy’s ass.  He will slam him, and he will take Randy to Suplex City, man.

It takes 20 trips to Suplex City, right.  Well it takes 1 RKO to get to Viperville.  No enhancement is needed.

Wow.

Chris knows someone who is close to Brock, and he has someone to send him a message.  Brock calls Randy a coward, since he has avoided him for 15 years.

Brock is going to eat Randy for breakfast, Brock’s words, not Jericho’s.

Brock say you are a stupid idiot, Brock’s words, not Chris.

What is he going to do?  Give him a RKO now?

How about now?

Randy flinches, but then gives Chris a RKO.

15 years in the making.

Our main event is now, Triple Threat for WWE Championship.  Ambrose Vs Reigns Vs Rollins.  The Shield explodes.

Oh lord, now all 4 bosses are coming to the ring, the focus needs to be on this match, not The McMahons.

Dean Ambrose wins the match, and keeps the title with Dirty Deeds, on Roman Reigns.

That means Smackdown will have the WWE Championship.

Incredible match, and best thing is the match was clean.

Ambrose celebrates the win with the entire Smackdown roster, while Stephanie is beside herself.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Top to bottom, this was a very good night of wrestling action.  Where we go from here is anybody’s guess.  But I have to believe we are going to have another title being introduced tomorrow night on Raw, and we will see Rollins Vs Reigns for the title, at Summerslam.

Just a big night of action, Zayn Vs Owens was the best match, but the main event had that big match feel too, and it ends with a clean pinfall.

Share me your thoughts, I will talk to you tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Impact Wrestling 7/21/16…BFG Playoffs Start Tonight

Jeff Hardy is trying to find redemption, he believed this started after he and his brother won Tag Titles, and broke his knee.  “Broken” Matt Hardy wants Jeff to fail, challenging him to jump that hill again.  Jeff does, as we go straight to…..

Lashley comes out to the ring.  Last week, Mike Bennett brought Moose, and tonight, Lashley Vs Edwards inside six sides of steel.  Title Vs Title.

Lashley beats people up, he doesn’t care who, or how, he does it.  Which is why he has a problem with someone coming into his company, and preventing him from winning X-Division Title.

Moose is supposed to impress us because he played in the NFL?  Lashley puts his gloves on, and either destroys people, or knock them out.

Lashley challenges Moose to come out, so he can destroy him, like he does everyone else on the roster.

Mike Bennett comes out.

Mike can say whatever he wants, and do whatever he wants, because he brought that big guy to beat his ass.  He is tired of people screwing him over, and Bennett wants what is coming to him, which is why he will win BFG Playoffs, and it’s because of this man.

Enter Moose.

Lashley is ready for Moose, so get your ass out here, and they can settle this once and for all.

Moose cuts Mike off, and comes right for Lashley.  But Eddie Edwards wants him some too.

All four men are fighting at The Impact Zone.

Officials come out to try to break them up.  Dixie Carter wants some order.  She tells them to get their focus on tonight’s Title Vs Title match.  There will be a match, and nobody will stop it.

If Bennett or Moose gets involved, Mike will be fired on the spot.

Mike will start the BFG Playoffs, and Moose will not interfere.

Mike’s opponent is Jeff Hardy, but here comes “Broken” Matt Hardy.

Matt tells us Jeff will not fight, because Jeff is Matt’s intellectual property.

We see footage, with Matt daring Jeff try the jump, so he can fail.

Jeff fails again.

And although this unfortunate incident happened, and Jeff failed again, he will compete.  Vanguard1 and he created new music, called “Obsolete”.

Reby Sky is having some fun with the music.

Jeff Vs Bennett is next.

Bennett wins the match with a cutter.  He moves on to the Semi-Finals with this victory.

Matt calls Jeff a pathetic, weak, obsolete mule.  Telling him to get out of his ring.

Jeff slowly walks away from this.

Now it’s Matt’s turn to show us what a true Hardy is supposed to look like.  Bring out his opponent, and he will delete him.

Sorry….bout your damn luck.

Matt Hardy Vs “Cowboy” James Storm is now.

Matt wins with the aid of Reby with a hammer, and a Twist of Fate by Hardy.

Earlier tonight, Lashley, Edwards, Bennett, and Moose all fought outside of the ring.

Title Vs Title inside six sides of steel, Lashley Vs Edwards.

Eddie shares some thoughts about Moose.  Tonight is about second chances, inside six sides of steel.  Eddie promises there will be a winner tonight.  He will become the new World Heavyweight Champion.

An in-depth look at EC3.

EC3 competes in the BFG Playoffs, next.

Backstage, Mike Bennett wants to show Dixie Carter who she is, Mike is 2 wins away from winning the TNA Title.  Maria will give her Knockout Address, and they will go celebrate, and disappear for a week.

Moose wants to fight.

EC3 wants to have a little chat.

People ask him all the time why is he here.  He is here for the same reason the wrestlers in the back are here, they have the drive, the passion to be the very best.  To be the best, it means you are the World Heavyweight Champion.

Ethan has won the title one time, two times, but both times he felt something was missing.  But now, he is going to win the BFG playoffs, and become the TNA World Champion.

Drew Galloway comes out.

Drew admits Ethan is a passionate man, he can get the crowd riled up just by singing his theme music.  But one thing they will never agree on is who is the best.

Ethan is a 2-time World Champion, and he will admit he is The “Ass Kicking Machine”.  Now the difference between the two of them is Ethan’s last name is Carter, and TNA asked him to join to help the company grow.

Drew has main evented every TNA PPV he has competed in.  And Ethan counters last week, the two men had a brawl, and if the officials hadn’t pulled them apart, we all know Ethan would have had the last say.

Drew disagreed with that, and they main evented at last year’s Bound for Glory, so perhaps they will meet again.

EC3 suggested the only way they can face each other is in the finals, so they need to get there first.

Drew wants to fight, and when EC3 agrees, here comes Eli Drake.

Everyone came here to talk about Eli Drake.  Not Drew Galloway, not EC3.

EC3 Vs Drake is next.

EC3 defeated Drake with a rollup pin, and Matt Hardy through his weird thing asked who he was going to face next week?  It will be EC3.

Delete this!!

Maria is getting ready for her speech, and Allie keeps kissing her ass.  Maria doesn’t even want to talk about this, because Dixie Carter is threatening her husband Mike Bennett.

Okay….

Tyrus is going be called “The Fixer” according to that “commercial” we just saw.

Lashley challenges anyone if they want some, come get some.  That includes Eddie Edwards and Moose.

Allie introduces us to Maria Kanellis Bennett.

If Maria has gone too far in her leadership of the Knockouts Division, she apologizes.  And she wants to know if anyone wants to air their grievances, ask your questions.

Allie has a question.

Maria is an inspiration, that we all aspire to achieve.  So how can they all be like her.

Just look deep in your hearts, and believe in her vision.

Jade has a question, she wants her title rematch.  Gail tells Jade she won’t get her title rematch, because she never received her title rematch.

But Sienna tells Gail Maria has more class in her little pinky than Gail ever will.

The focus is all on Gail, but she lost two times to Sienna, so it’s time to stop being selfish.

Gail respects the Knockouts, except for Maria, and Allie.  If she won’t get her rematch with Maria, then she wants the title shot.

Maria orders Gail faces the entire Knockout Division.  If she wins, then she will get her title shot.  If she loses to any of them, then she won’t receive another title opportunity.  And if this happens, the knockout will be rewarded handsomely.

Jade says she has never gone by the rules, so she is leaving.

But she gets into it with Marti.  And Madison Rayne turns on Gail, saying nothing personal, it’s time they all get title opportunities.

Rosemary wants to give Bram some help for his match tonight against Drew Galloway.  Bram doesn’t know what to think, but they do make out.

Shears gets beat down by Al Snow’s boys when he was trying to discuss the BFG Playoffs.

Bram Vs Galloway is now.

Galloway wins the match with a Future Shock DDT off the top rope, for the win.

Edwards Vs Lashley, Title Vs Title, inside Six Sides of Steel is next.

Next Thursday on Impact, Semi-Finals of BFG Playoffs, with Hardy Vs EC3 and Galloway Vs Bennett.

Galloway wants the World Title, but everyone wants to see EC3 Vs Galloway.

Bennett comments that he is the odds on favorite, because of Moose.  But Drew reminds him Moose is a loose cannon, and if he interferes in tonight’s World Title match, Mike is fired.

Edwards Vs Lashley, Title Vs Title, inside Six Sides of Steel is now.

Lashley wins the match, and the X-Division Title with an amazing spear.  Just an incredible match.  Lashley picks Edwards up, and is about to spear him again, but here comes EC3.  Hardy counters this, here comes Galloway.  Bennett and Moose come out and all men are fighting inside Six Sides of Steel when the show ends.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I loved the main event.  I wasn’t a fan of the Hardy situation again, but most of the focus was on BFG Playoffs, and with next week being the Semi-Finals, they will have some good matches.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE CWC Wrestling 7/20/16

Tonight, night 2 of the 32 man tournament.  Mauro Ranallo and Daniel Bryan welcome us to the show.

Corey Graves is in the CWC Control Room.

We are going to see Tajiri Vs Damien Slater.  Also T.J. Perkins will face Da Mack.  Mustafa Ali will face Lance Dorado, and it’s Akira Tozawa Vs Kenneth Johnson.

Kicking things off, it’s Tajiri Vs Damien Slater.

Tajiri wins with a Buzzsaw Kick.

Our next match is T.J. Perkins Vs Da Mack.

The Artist Formerly Known as Manik win with a Kneebar, making Da Mack tap out.

TJ Perkins advances.

Not sure why TNA didn’t allow Perkins to show this charisma.  He would still be there, if they had.

Ali Vs Dorado, next.

Dorado wins a fun match with a Shooting Star Press.  Both men did very well here.

Tozawa Vs Johnson, our main event is next.

Tozawa wins with the Bridge German Suplex.  Kenneth showed some promise, and Tozawa was awesome.  The former Dragon Gate wrestler showed off, and this fit the billing.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another fun show, with each match surpassing the other match.  Share your thoughts.   Next week, we will see The Brian Kendrick in action.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE NXT 7/20/16…Bayley Vs Nia Jax.

Tonight, NXT brings us Joe Vs Rhyno, American Alpha Vs The Authors Of Pain, Bayley Vs Nia Jax.  It’s Fight Night, on NXT.

We are at Full Sail University, and we kick the show of Rhyno Vs Samoa Joe, in a non-title match.

Joe wins with his Coquina Clutch.

The NXT Champion looked good here.

Tom Phillips and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

Asuka is with the new woman announcer.  She fights Bayley.  She fights Nia Jax.  She fights both.

American Alpha will face The Authors of Pain.

Smackdown Rebound, showcasing the NXT superstars who were chosen to Raw and Smackdown.

American Alpha will face The Authors of Pain, now.

The Authors of Pain attacked Gable and Jordan before the match starts.  Paul Ellring is watching on with glee.  Before Paul can speak, here comes Jordan and Gable.

American Alpha fought hard, but Authors of Pain win the match, with brute strength.

Paul Elring is proud of them.

Dash and Dawson are proud of their 2 out of 3 fall match a few weeks ago, beating Gable and Jordan.  What is next with The Revival?

They proved they are the best tag team on this planet, and they are the only 2-time NXT Tag Team Titles.

Gargano and Ciampa want their tag team shot.  The clock is ticking.

Bayley is warming up for her match with Nia Jax, later tonight.

Patrick Clark, from Tough Enough is facing Austin Aries.

Aries wins with Last Chancery, and after the match No Way Jose comes out to go after Aries, after what happened to him a month ago, when Aries turned on Jose.

Bayley Vs Nia Jax is next.

Our main event, Nia Jax Vs Bayley is now.

Bayley picks up the win with a Belly to Bayley, off the top rope.

Bayley ends the show with a celebration.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A decent show tonight, this might have been the last appearance of American Alphas, before next Tuesday night, on Smackdown.  We need to give Authors of Pain more time, but incredible main event for Bayley.  No clue what they do with her.  I still think she will be Sasha’s tag team partner this Sunday.

Send me your thoughts on the show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Draft Update

Not much to update, except this shocking announcement, according to WWE.com.

There is an announcer change, and it goes like this.

Raw Announce Team:

Michael Cole

Byron Saxton

Corey Graves

Smackdown Announce Team:

Mauro Ranallo

Davis Otunga

JBL

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Let me also say Booker T and Jerry “The King” Lawler will be adding their parts to the Pre-shows, and post-shows.  I think it was a good move.  Jerry is being downsized, and it’s probably time.  I will always be a fan of King’s, but lately it just sounded like he cared less and less.  And to make this feel like a “new era”, you need some new people in the broadcast movement.

Smackdown looks to shine with the always trustworthy Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, who was doing a very good job on The Main Event, and JBL.

Raw gets Corey Graves, who is excellent in his role, and it’s his turn to shine.  But now it’s time to tweak Byron a bit.  He just sounds too much like Cole, and he needs his own niche.  Let’s hope they allow him too, because he too was a former NXT performer.  They need to allow his expertise to shine a bit more.

And of course, Heath Slater is still a free agent.  But one name that hasn’t been mentioned, and he wasn’t drafted was The Undertaker.

Whether you liked it or not last night, this gives both shows fresh looks to them, and now comes the buildup of the respected shows.

Send me your thoughts.

The events that took place earlier tonight with Becky Lynch.  The world can now see the kind of person who Becky is, the one who stole Nattie’s spotlight, by attacking her from behind.  Greg tries to stir the pot, by talking about Becky being selected before Nattie.  Becky will play the role of victim, this Sunday at Battleground.

Jo-Jo with Cesaro, who was selected at Raw.

Cesaro felt he should have been a top 10 pick.  Cesaro felt he would have been a better fit at Smackdown, but he will overcome the odds.

Cesaro shares his thoughts with how Foley and Stephanie can co-exist.  Cesaro feels the focus needs to be on the superstars getting drafted, not talking about the ones running the show.  People can see that Cesaro can speak, but he would like to speak the language WWE Universe always likes, wrestling.

The Golden Truth joins the Draft Center desk.

Goldbook is reunited, (The name I chose for them in 2002).  They line up against the young talent.

Darren Young is with Titus, he is more excited about reuniting with Titus.  Jo-Jo shares some thoughts from Mr. Backlund and Darren Young.

Darren needs to share a constant barbarism.  Can they go out and party tonight?

Mick and Stephanie’s best choices were Charlotte and Finn Balor.  Both of them in the first round.

Mick was the one and only name Stephanie had in mind as GM.  They have had a history together.

The show ends here, and Heath Slater still hasn’t been chosen.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A fun night of action, and the draft is complete.  Raw receives the most superstars, but Smackdown picked up some good spots too.  My three favorite Raw picks were Rollins, Charlotte, and Balor.  But Smackdown picked up AJ Styles, Bray Wyatt, and my favorite pick, American Alphas.

Who were your favorites?  If there are updates, I will share them with you tomorrow, so keep checking this week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/18/16…Ambrose vs Rollins

One day away from the draft, we will kick the show off with news on who the respected GMs will be.  Creative has to get this right, and I will tell you my thoughts at the end of the night.  But if you truly want to kick off a new era, it is important.

We will also see Dean Ambrose defend his WWE Title against Seth Rollins, 6 days away from Battleground.

Speaking of Battleground, might we see the return of Roman Reigns?

Raw is in 20 minutes.

Tonight is the night says the theme song, and Raw is live, from Providence, Rhode Island.

The new Commissioner of Monday Night Raw, Stephanie McMahon comes to the ring.

Draft pick rules, Raw will get the first pick.  For every 2 Smackdown picks, Raw will get 3. Teams will be chosen by one pick, unless specified, and there are 6 NXT choices available.

Shane McMahon comes out too, the new Smackdown Commissioner.

Welcome everyone to Monday Night Raw.  Shane gets that for the last time, since this will be his last night of Monday Night Raw.  And Steph will not miss working with Shane.

More brother-sister love it seems.

Tomorrow, on Smackdown Live, there will be a draft.  Stephanie told Shane that this will benefit both shows.  Steph tells us that there will be a Cruiserweight Division, exclusively on Monday Night Raw.

Stephanie tells us that with a 3 hour show, Raw will receive more draft picks.

Shane tell us he has discussed matters with the new General Manager, and Stephanie informs us we will announce the new Raw General Manager, and it is…..

Mick Foley!!

Alright!!

Foley chants galore here.  Mick thanks Stephanie for this great opportunity, and thank you for naming Mick the Raw General Manager, right here….in Providence, Rhode Island.

This moment reminds Mick of what we called The Attitude Era.  This reminds him of The Monday Night Era, and it was all about the survival.

When Foley heard about the competition of Raw Vs Smackdown, he was reminded of an emblem.  Then when Steph called him, that turned to fire.

Foley tell us he put the final nail in the coffin of WCW.  And he will look for that fire, and will do whatever it takes to win.

Shane congratulates Mick, but that brings Shane to his General Manager.  He needs someone who breaks glass ceilings.  Someone that can be an underdog, and rise to occasion.  So who can it be?  Who is more popular than Mick Foley?

Daniel Bryan!!

The Yes Movement is back, baby!!

Daniel shakes everyone’s hand, but does not shake Stephanie’s hand.  The crowd loves Daniel Bryan.

Did the crowd miss Daniel?  Yes!!  Yes!!  Yes!!

Stephanie panders to Daniel, and Daniel responds the crowd never has cheered for Steph.  He didn’t know if he’s ever be back, because he missed wrestling too much.  But Shane called him, about making the superstars first rather than management.

He told him about the battle lines being drawn, and how Smackdown is the underdog, he thought he can come back.

Daniel needed to come back, because Smackdown is the underdog, just like Daniel was the underdog.

Thank you Daniel chants.

Daniel didn’t do this alone, like when he beat Stephanie’s husband at Wrestlemania 30, he didn’t do that alone, we did that.  We have beaten The Authority before, and they will do it again.

Steph calls the fans losers, and that is why they cheer for Daniel.  He thanks Shane for choosing a B+ player for a B+ show.

Shane reminds Steph there will be 2 things, 1.  She will always be Shane’s little sister.  And 2.  She had to marry a WWE superstar to stay relevant.

Ouch.

Shane asks Daniel if he has what it takes to make Smackdown great again?

One word….yes.

Tonight, for the WWE Title, it will be Dean Ambrose Vs Seth Rollins.  We will also see a 12-man tag team.  So I guess Teddy Long is the guest GM tonight.  And next, Cesaro and Zayn will face Owens and Jericho.

Jericho and Owens Vs Zayn and Cesaro is now.

At Battleground, Highlight Reel with Jericho’s guest being Randy Orton.  Also this Sunday, Zayn Vs Owens, for the final time.

Zayn and Cesaro wins when Zayn pinned Jericho with a roll up.  Fun match here, that centered around Zayn Vs Owens.

The Golden Truth is talking to Daniel Bryan.  They are trying to get Daniel into drafting them.

He runs into Titus and Swagger.

Stephanie tries and pander Daniel some more.

Daniel ignores it, and says she has been ruining Monday Night Raw, as we go to a break.

Our next match is Darren Young Vs Alberto Del Rio.

This Sunday, it’s The Miz vs Young for the IC Title.

DARREN YOUNG IS GREAT AGAIN!!!!

Darren rolls Del Rio with a Bridge Roll Up.  Okay, Miz might have had something to do with it, distracting Del Rio a bit.

Big Show is talking with Shane and Daniel.

Tonight, Charlotte and Dana Brooke Vs Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch.

But next, a 12-man tag match.

Here comes John Cena.

This Sunday, it will be Cena, Enzo, and Cass Vs The Club.

We have General Managers, we have Commissioners, and tomorrow night, we will have the WWE Draft, at WWE Smackdown Live.

But wait, there is more.  This Sunday, we have WWE Battleground.  And we have The Club, who want to bat him up.  But they can’t see me, because I have the certified G’s.

Enzo and Cass come out, and you know what they aren’t?

S.A.W.F.T.

You can’t teach that.

Enzo has something to say.  The term don’t take this the wrong way has a 0% success rate.  So The Club, don’t take this the wrong way, but they ain’t nothing but herves without security.  And you don’t judge a book by its cover.  And he would know, because he doesn’t read.

Some great stuff by Enzo.

Cena stops Enzo, and says he is all over the place.  That’s Enzo Amore, how ya doin’?

Cena tells them they have a match at Battleground, they have to get serious.  Big Cass tells them they like to have fun with the fans, but when it comes to push to serve, they will be as serious as they come.

But here come The Club.

John Boy, really, you’re going to tag up with them?  It’s like setting Cena up for failure.  But he made that choice, so he will give him a taste of what to expect at Battleground.

Karl Anderson asks them if they have chemistry?  The Club have chemistry.  Karl and his hot Asian wife have chemistry.  So when did they meet?  A few weeks ago at catering?

Tonight, The Club has social media goals.  Not only do they get to#BeatUpJohnCena.  They also get to beat up Enzo.  They get to beat up Cass, but they also get to beat up New Day.

AHHHHHH Providence, it’s time to stand up and clap for you world-famous 2-time WWE Tag Team Champions…..

It’s A New Day, yes it is.

They are no-selling the Wyatt Family Compound Festivities last weekend.

AJ brings that up, but they are not any ordinary men.  And once again, they are all talk, no action.

Xavier tries to explain How Ya Doin’.

Cena stops him, because….

New Day Rocks!!

The Wyatts come out now.

For those of you who are keeping score at home, and you know who you are.  It’s Cena, New Day, Enzo and Cass Vs The Club and The Wyatts.

The Club and The Wyatts won a wild brawl, when Enzo accidentally runs into Cena, and Enzo is nailed with a Styles Clash.

Braun Strowman was built strong here, and there is a good possibility Wyatts may break up.

2 6-man tag matches this Sunday.  New Day Vs The Wyatts and Cena, Enzo, and Cass Vs The Club.

Something fun tomorrow night at WWE Network.  They are running Draft Center Live, from 8:00-11:00 keeping up to date with the draft picks, and giving us a second viewing.

Tonight, Ambrose Vs Rollins, for the WWE Title.

We are live in Providence, and tonight will see a WWE Title match between Ambrose Vs Rollins.

Who will head to Battleground as WWE Champion?  Seth Rollins said he will, and we see video from earlier tonight.

Earlier tonight, the two Commissioners announced who the 2 GMs are going to be.

Daniel Bryan and Mick Foley, welcome to The Lions Den.

Foley is talking with Breezango, which can be a funny thing.  Shane asks why Mick or anyone would want to work with Stephanie.  But the rumor has it she hired her so she can manipulate him.  Mick is on to everything, but he sees an opportunity to better himself, she has the passion and fire nobody else has.  He is eyes wide open.

Sin Cara Vs Baron Corbin is now.

End of Days, that is all she wrote.  Corbin attacks Sin Cara, and here comes Kalisto.

Corbin attacks him too.

Lucha Dragons are no more, but they are still friends.  Corbin made a statement, one day before the draft.

The women go to work, next.

A sneak peek of “Batman Vs Superman:  Dawn Of Justice” is shown now.

Right now, Charlotte and Dana Brooke Vs Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch.

This Sunday, it will be Becky Vs Natalya, and we will also see Charlotte and Dana Brooke Vs Sasha and a mystery partner.

Charlotte and Dana are DQ’d because Natalya comes in, and attacks Becky Lynch.

So Dana and Charlotte attack Sasha, sending her a message heading into Battleground.

Demon Kane is talking to Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon.

Dean Ambrose has a message, old school style.  He changed the course of history, when he cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase, and became WWE Champion.

He is serving his Shield brothers after tonight, and Sunday, Dean will still be the WWE Champion.

It’s Rusev and Sheamus Vs Ziggler and Zack Ryder.

Rusev and Sheamus win with an Accolade, seeing Ziggler tap out.

This Sunday, United States Title match with Rusev Vs Ryder.

At Summerslam, it will be Orton Vs Lesnar.  Randy will be at Battleground, this Sunday.

We see a Randy Orton video.

Orton is Chris Jericho’s special guest on the Highlight Reel, this Sunday.

Next, it’s Ambrose Vs Rollins, for the WWE Championship.

Footage from The ESPYs, with John Cena hosting the show.

Once again, they show you the WWE Draft rules.  Tomorrow night, Smakdown Live.

The Ascension are talking with Mick Foley.  Daniel Bryan wants the two men to have a good working relationship.

But now, words are spoken, and well we know.

Foley assures to Daniel, the battle is on.  Foley is Raw.  Daniel is Smackdown Live.  Let the games begin.

Ambrose Vs Rollins, our main event for the WWE Championship is now.

They gave us a bullshit finish, with a ref bump, and both men are pinned.  What made it annoying though was hearing Stephanie McMahon celebrate like Seth won the title.  She never talked to the ref, the match was great though, but the ending was half-ass.

But the draft is tomorrow, and that is why they gave us the controversial decision.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The show was fine, I loved the two picks, especially Mick Foley working with Steph.  That should give us some drama.

So tune in tomorrow night for the draft, let me know what you think.

Daivari is Sean Daivari’s brother, former WWE and TNA wrestler.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Not sure what the winner gets, but this is a good idea.  Matches should get even better, and right now I would have to say Ibushi is the favorite.

What were your thoughts?  Send them to me.

Also a quick note, a big week in wrestling.  We have Rae Monday night, the draft on Smackdown Live Tuesday.  NXT and CWC will continue Wednesday, and Impact Wrestling makes its move to Thursday nights.  I will cover them all live as they are happening this week.  I can’t say that every week, so make sure you keep it locked this week, and every week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NXT Wrestling 7/13/16…Balor Vs Nakamura

Tonight, for the first time ever in NXT, Finn Balor will face Shinsuke Nakamura.

NXT Wrestling is now.

We are at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida.  Earlier today, Finn Balor entered the building.  Shinsuke worked out.

Tom Phillips and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

Kicking things off is the NXT Champion, Samoa Joe.

Joe has come here for a few reason.  First and foremost your NXT Champion is here to witness Finn Balor Vs Shinsuke Nakamura.  He is fixing to say we all are here.  But the implications of the match is disrespectful to the NXT Champion.  Whoever wins the match tonight automatically gain a chance at his title.

So he is here to separate fantasy from reality.  Some people believe Finn will get his revenge at losing to Joe, but he is here to say he sleighs The Demon, and he is our undisputed NXT Champion.

Then there are others who says “The King of Strong Style” will march right in, and defeat Joe for the NXT Title.  Joe’s reality is he was the original “King of Strong Style”, so if that is the case, Joe is the Roman Emperor.

Joe is the new face of NXT…

Here comes Rhyno.

So you’re the one I have to go through to get to the top?  Then Ryhno will have to go through Joe.  What do you say Warrior?

Joe walks away, and says he will beat him on his time.

Tonight, Balor Vs Nakamura, for the first time in NXT.  The Dream Match will happen.

Next week, Bayley Vs Mia Jax, for the Women’s Title.  Also, American Alpha Vs Masters of Pain.  And, Samoa Joe Vs Rhyno, all next week.

Balor Vs Nakamura video is playing now, with comments from the wrestlers.

Next, our main event.  Nakamura Vs Balor.

Shinsuke win a grueling match over Finn, and pins him after a Kinshasa, Balor shook hands with Nakamura after the match, and gave “The King of Strong Style”to have the floor.

Incredible match, and incredible show.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The entire focus of the show focused on our dream match, and it lived up to everything.  I like when bog matches can be centered around an entire 60 minute show, and that is what we have.  3 matches are set for next week.

What were your thoughts?  Send them to me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Impact Wrestling 7/12/16….Destination X

We begin the show the after #TheFinalDeletion, “Broken” Matt Hardy buried Brother Nero’s remaining clothing he had, before being deleted.

It’s OVVVVVAHHHHH!!

Impact Wrestling starts now, we are in Orlando, Florida.  Josh Matthews and The Pope welcome us to the show.

We have an Ultimate X match, with the winner being Number One Contender to X-Division Champion.

Rockstar Soud Vs Mandrews Vs Braxton Sutter Vs DJZ Vs Helms Dynasty.

DJZ wins the match, and is now Number One Contender to X-Division Title.

JB is with DJZ, he has been in the X-Divion for 6 long years.  He has worked harder than ever, and he just won Ultimate X.  He will be on his way to win X-Divison Title.

“Miracle” Mike Bennett comes out and lays DJZ out.

He promised to ruin Destination X.  This is the beginning, because he is going to burn TNA to the ground.

EC3 is backstage, he is here to fight.  The time for talking is done, tonight Drew….they are going to fight.

Starting next Thursday, Impact Wrestling has moved to a new night, and a new time, at 8:00.

McKenzie Mitchell is backstage, telling us the main event is TNA World Champion Bobby Lashley Vs X-Division Champion Eddie Edwards.  Dixie Carter tells us next week, we will kick off Bound for Glory Playoffs, featuring 8 men.  We will find out who they are, tonight.

JB is with the two champs, Lashley and Eddie Edwards.

It’s all on the line tonight.  It’s Title Vs Title.

Lashley grabs the mic.

Last week, Eddie got a lucky shot.  He believed that X-Division is the heart of Impact Wrestling.  It’s not, it’s the World Title.  Lashley is on top of the food chain, and while he admires Eddie for challenging him, all he did was piss Bobby off.

Bobby doesn’t understand the type of guy Eddie is, he has never backed down from a fight.  And he will show him the kind of man he is.  Last week, Bobby said he was a little pissed off, but wait until you see Edwards winning the title.

Lashley tells him it won’t happen, because the underdog does not win.  He will beat his ass, just like he says he will do.  He will take Eddie’s title, and become the force that he says he will be.

Edwards said this is real life, this is his life.  This wrestling ring is his life.  The Wolves Nation…..

Lashley attacks him, and now has a chair.

But Davey Richards comes in, grabs the chair from Lashley, and we see The Wolves take Lashley out.

Eddie has both titles now.

The Decay are backstage, Crazzy Steve wants to know where Rosemary is at.  Abyss will take out Bram, Rosemary will come back, and everything will be beautiful.

This is baby Maxell’s birthday celebration, and “Broken” Matt Hardy will show us the film of The Final Deletion, in front of a crowd.

He wants us to reveal the completion of The Final Deletion.  We will all hail King Maxell.

Abyss Vs Bram is now.

Bram picks up the win, rolling up Abyss after Rosemary whispers in Bram’s ear.  This confuses everyone.

Knockout Title is up next.  Sienna will defend her title against Marti Bell, Jade, and Gail Kim.

Fatal 4-Way for Knockout Title is up now.

Sienna hits a Silencer when Gail Kim tried to go after Allie.  A fun match.

More footage of what happened last night in Cameron.

There must be green beans, prepare the green beans!!

Tomorrow on Impact, Matt will make sure Brother Nero’s remains are deleted, forever.

Matt, live, next.

Earlier tonight, Davey Richards returns to take out Lashley and help his friend, Eddie Edwards.

Lashley has a choice.  He could have ripped Davey Richards right there and then.  But Bobby likes to hunt, so he wants Davey right there at ringside, so he can see him take care of Eddie, and take out The X-Division.

Last week’s final match between Hardy Vs Hardy.

Here comes “Broken” Matt Hardy.

Reby Sky welcomes us the man who runs the Hardy name.  The man with a broken brilliance, Matt Hardy.

Your hatred only makes him strongahhhh!!!

Last week, he won the best wrestling match in history, The Final Deletion.  And now, he owns everything Hardy.  He deleted everything that makes Hardy special.  He deleted him.

But he is kind enough to bring him out here for us to see him one more time.  Come on out, Brother Nero.  No music, no pyro, nothing.

Brother Nero comes to the ring.

Matt has decided the punishment, and has decided his Impact Wrestling contract is terminated…..IT’S OVAAAAAHHHHH!!!

Be gone.

Matt knows Jeff would go back to New York, or go to Japan, so he will keep him here at Impact Wrestling, and will use him as his obsolete mule.  He will have him work until he is as dry as a penny.  Matt may be broken, but he will never be broke.

Brother Nero will realize that being deleted is worse than being broke in half.

Be gawn Brother Nero….DELETE!!  DELETE!!  DELETE!!

Tonight, Title Vs Title, Lashley Vs Edwards.

Backstage, Bennett wants to continue to ruin Destination X.  DJZ wants a match, and that will happen, next.

DJZ has pinned “The Miracle” when Mike tried to run away from Z, the rest of the X-Division came out, and cost Mike the match.

That’s not the way it is supposed to go down.  Mike promised to ruin Destination X, and he promised to burn this company to the ground.  And he won’t do it, alone.

Drew Galloway wants to fight EC3, and that happens next.

Bennett is on the phone.  Perhaps this is The Kingdom?

Galloway is in the ring.  He and EC3 go way back, but one thing they can’t see eye to eye is World Heavyweight Title.  So since TNA won’t sanction a wrestling match here, they might as well do a good old-fashioned fight.

Drew wants the World Heavyweight Championship, EC3 wants to be the World Heavyweight Champion, and there can only be one.

They have had the evolution of friendships.  Maybe they will be friends tomorrow, but for now, Drew will be EC3 Scottish Puppy Dog Bitch.

The fight is on.

A great fight between both men here, that is ended with other officials and wrestlers breaking it up.

Davey Richards is taping up Eddie’s hands, telling him he is there for Eddie.

Title Vs Title match is next.

Next week, BFG Playoffs begin, with EC3, Drew Galloway, Bram, “The Miracle” Mike Bennett, “Cowboy” James Storm, Jeff Hardy, Eli Drake, and Matt Hardy all vie for a World Title opportunity at Bound for Glory.

Edwards Vs Lashley is now for the World Heavyweight Title and X-Division Title.

The match ends in a no contest, because Bennett stops the ref from counting, and the man who helps Mike is Moose, tje former ROH star.

Moose and Lashley go face to face, Bennett clips Lashley from behind, and Moose nails a vicious lariat.

McKenzie wants to hear from Dixie.  She says these things won’t happen, the fans deserve to see who win the title match.  So next week, another title vs title match.  Edwards Vs Lashley, inside six sides of steel.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

You had to wonder where we would go from here after last week’s “Final Deletion” episode.  My biggest complaint is TNA didn’t make Destination X feel like a special episode.  Just the same show every week.

But there were some good parts to it.

I love Moose coming in, but I didn’t have to see himself being thought of as a babyface, when he did the Moose chants, just come in like a badass, and do your thing.

Mike Bennett served his purpose here.

DJZ was the star here, being treated seriously.

This also sets up the big move next week, to give us a Steel Cage match.  Not to mention more greatness from “Broken” Matt Hardy, and Brother Nero.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/11/16…Mr. McMahon Returns

Tonight, we are live in Detroit, Michigan.  One week away from the draft.  We begin with the Number One Contender Battle Royal match, to determine who faces The Miz at Battleground.

The Miz introduces us to the match, and here we go.

Darren Young is GREAT AGAIN!!  He is the last man standing, and he didn’t eliminate the final 2.  Apollo Crews and Corbin eliminated themselves.  Mr. Backlund is beside himself.

At Battleground, it will be Young Vs The Miz.

Tonight, Mr. McMahon is here, and next, we get to see “The Beast” go through the Octagon, this past weekend.

And, this weekend, New Day went into the Wyatt Compound, and had an epic fight.

Stephanie and Shane are bickering over what Dad has to say.  Seth Rollins approaches them.  He believes Vince wanted to talk to him, the number one draft pick of the draft.  But he has footage of Roman Reigns, he would like to share it with us.  Shane suggests they use it at Ambrose Asylum.  But Seth has experience at talk show, and he came this close taking over John Stewart’s role.  So he suggests they have the first ever Rollins Report.

Saturday night, at UFC 200, Brock Lesnar beat Mark Hunt in unanimous decision.  At Summerslam, it will be Randy Orton Vs Brock Lesnar.

It’s announced at Battleground, The Highlight Reel, with Chris Jericho will feature Randy Orton.

Zack Ryder challenges Rusev to a United States Title match, but Sheamus attacks Zack from behind, and says he has a match with Sheamus, next.

There goes Zack’s winning streak, Brogue Kick is all she wrote.

Here comes Rusev, he has bad intentions.

But Zack fights back.  Rusev gives Ryder an Accolade, and screams he accepts his challenge.

Tonight, Enzo and Cass will face Gallows and Anderson.

Oh no, it’s Breezango Vs Lucha Dragons.

Breezango wins when Breeze uses his weight, and pins Kalisto, holding on his tights.

The Rollins Report is next.

We are 13 days away from seeing Reigns Vs Rollins Vs Ambrose, at WWE Battleground.

Sadly, no desk here on The Rollins Report.

Seth has some evidence for us, he is on the case.  He has obtained exclusive footage of a sit-down interview, with Rollins having a one on one interview with Reigns.

The video is shown now.

Funny video here, where Seth dubbed some footage here, of saying Reigns cheated on his Wellness Policy.

Seth Rollins is such a journalist.

We need to do the right thing.  Roman Reigns needs to be thrown out of the title match.  Seth needs to get his one-on-one match.

Here comes Dean Ambrose to interrupt things.

Dean enjoyed the interview.

Rollins calls Ambrose’s championship reign a joke.  Because he stole that WWE World Title from Seth.  You know why?  Dean is a coward, and he can’t beat Seth.  He tried and tried to take that title away from him, but he couldn’t do it.  Nobody was able to do it, and now Ambrose is trying to team up with his buddy, Roman, and sneak the pin.  But this match will be who is the best member of The Shield.  And he will prove at Battleground that he is the best member of The Shield.  So tell all the jokes, because Dean’s fairy tale will come to an end.

Dean likes to come out, and have a good time, because he is the top in the world.  He has proven he is more than just a utility role, because as guys come and go, he is the one still here.  And everyone knows how good he is.

Now Seth, you have known Dean for a long time.  He knows the kind of person he is.  He knows how many buckets he has bled, the sacrifices he has made, so Seth, if you know this, how far does he think he will go to keep this title.  Not Seth Rollins, not Roman Reigns, not Vince McMahon, not even the devil himself will take this title away from him.

If he wants him one on one, he will take it anytime, anyplace.

Detroit is as good as any time.  But no, they will do this on Seth’s time, next week.  Not tonight.

Mr. McMahon returns to Raw, tonight.

But tonight, Enzo and Cass Vs Gallows and Anderson.

A big fight this past weekend at the Wyatt Compound.

Next week, it is official, Seth Rollins Vs Dean Ambrose, for the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

Sami Zayn joins us for commentary.  At Battleground, it will be Zayn Vs Owens.

Now, it’s Owens Vs Cesaro.

Kevin Owens refuses to work with Sami Zayn at ringside.  Stephanie McMahon agrees.  Sami refuses to leave, but officials escort him.

Here comes Owens, and the two fight.

A limo pulls up, and it’s Mr. McMahon.  So I guess there is no match.

Renee Young catches up with Mr. McMahon.  He is here to name the new COO of Smackdown Live.  No wait, we need a new change, so he is here to name the new Commissioner of Smackdown Live.

Okay, Cesaro Vs Owens is now.

Owens picks up the win, and he grabs the head set, telling us he is the best in the world, even though he doesn’t say he is.  But you know who isn’t, and Sami Zayn attacks him through the audience.  Cesaro now catches him with the Cesaro Swing.

Last week, on Raw, Cena is attacked by The Club.  But here comes Enzo and Cass to help “The Franchise”.

Renee Young is with The Club.

AJ tells us Cena doesn’t care about Enzo and Cass.  He isn’t even here.  He is in rehearsal for The ESPYs.

Tonight, they will take care of Enzo and Cass.  Then, they will jump on a plane, head to California, and on Wednesday, they will….ummmmm

#BeatUpJohnCena.

Our next match is Heath Slater Vs Titus O’ Neil.

Clash of the Titus, that is all she wrote.

Renee Young is with Sasha Banks.  Last week, Dana Brooke challenged Sasha to a match.  She is ready.  All she can think about is hitting Dana with a Bank Statement.

Next, footage from The New Day vs The Wyatts at the Wyatt Family Compound.

Footage from this weekend’s match New Day Vs Wyatts.

It looked like Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  But this was well done, with a bunch of fighting, and when new Day seemed to have things going their way, we see more followers.

Follow The Buzzards.

Enzo and Cass Vs Gallows and Anderson is now.

Gallows and Anderson are DQ’d when AJ Styles takes out Enzo.  And just when the 3 men are setting up Cass, here comes John Cena to even the odds.

Enzo, Cass and Cena take out The Club.  Cena is here after all.

In 13 days, 6-man tag match with Enzo, Cass, and Cena Vs The Club.

Tonight, Mr. McMahon is here, and will name the new Commissioner of Smackdown Live.

But next, it will be Sasha Banks Vs Dana Brooke.

We are live in Detroit, Michigan.  Mr. McMahon will be here, to tell us who the new Smackdown Live Commissioner is.

But first, it’s Sasha Vs Dana Brooke.

Sasha hits Bank Statement to win the match.

Charlotte mocks a celebration over Sasha’s win.  But anybody can get lucky once.  But it doesn’t mean she is deserving of a title shot.  So how about if she faces Dana one more time this Thursday, maybe she will earn a title shot.

So Charlotte is the GM now?

The Chairman is headed to the ring.  Who is the new Commissioner of Smackdown Live?  We find out, next.

Next week, Ambrose Vs Rollins for the title.

Now, Shane O’ Mac comes out.

Now comes Stephanie McMahon.

They are sure dragging this out.  Let’s see the entrance theme of Linda McMahon.  I miss that entrance theme.

Mr. McMahon comes out, and tells them they have done a good job.  Competition is good, but he is disappointed.  It seems like neither one of them came from his loins.

Did he just say that?

He calls Stephanie fake.

She acts like she is sweet, and Steph seems insulted about that.

Shane lost his Wrestlemania match, only reason he is here is because he jumped off the cell at Wrestlemania.  But where is that ruthless aggression?

One of them has to convince him to be the Commish of Smackdown Live.  So convince him.

Stephanie announces her accomplishes.  The gloves are off.  She brings up the Mick Foley podcast, and says Shane attacks Vince behind his back.

Convince Vince, Shane.

Shane returned to WWE 5 months ago, and he returned in this very arena, right here in Detroit Rock City.  He returned, and was rewarded to an ovation that humbled him, so thank you Detroit.

But people were excited because Shane would represent change.  He would change everything, rules, cameras, opportunities.  He is the only one in this business, and on planet Earth that tells Vince how it is respectively, and he doesn’t kiss his ass.  Change is what this company needs.  And if Vince still has the grapefruits, change is what is needed.

I am not convinced by either, really.

Vince can care less what the fans think.  That is not how to run a business.  One of them needs to run Smackdown Live.

We have a drumroll, and Vince tells us the new Commissioner of Smackdown Live is…..

Shane McMahon.

Wait a second, he is here to relieve his duties of Monday Night Raw.  So the commissioner of Monday Night Raw is…..

Stephanie McMahon.

But wait, he is not finished.

He wants the two to compete, in terms of social media, ratings, merchandise.  He wants them both to compete so badly, he doesn’t give a damn if they break the law.  As long as they don’t get caught.  Who gets the keys to the city?

They both will name a General Manager next week, so let the games begin.

Stephanie tells Shane she works twice as hard, and gets half the credit.  Now let the games begin, and Shane will make it seem like he wished he wasn’t born.

Shane tells Steph she is scared, and she has seen the ending of this before.  So game on.

Steph tells him there is only one game, and she is married to him.  She slaps him.  Shane responds with a kiss.

Let the games begin, and we end the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was an okay show, it was more or less a filler, but with more matches.  Vince McMahon returning felt like a waste though, because he truly didn’t choose anyone.

Next week is where it is at.  One day from the draft, we will hear who the two respected GMs are, and we will also get a WWE World Title match.

Send me your thoughts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 6/20/16…The Ambrose Era Has Begun

In one night, WWE gave us 2 WWE World Title changes, and the Money in the Bank winner cashes in for one of those title changes.

That’s right folks, Dean Ambrose is our new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Let the Ambrose Era begin.

Earlier today, the new WWE World Champion arrived in a taxi cab.

He forgot his belt.

Raw starts now.

We are live in Phoenix, Arizona.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

The Champ kicks the show off.

No, not Roman Reigns.  Not even Seth Rollins, but Dean Ambrose.

Yes, that Dean Ambrose.

The crowd chants he deserves it, and he thanks the crowd.

Last night was a long night for Dean in Vegas.  There was a thing with the security at Hard Rock.  Then there was this party with the Cleveland Cavaliers.  He almost got run over by a cab.  He climbed a ladder to become Mr. Money in the Bank.  Then he thinks he got bit by a dog, and oh yeah, he cashed his briefcase, and became the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

And Seth Rollins had a long night too.  And he was the right man, at the right time.  So here is a life lesson, what comes around goes around.

And oh yeah, hard work pays off.

Seth called himself “The Man”, Roman calls himself “The Guy”, so should he call himself “The Dude”?

Getting this title was worth every pain, and he picked himself up, and he is here to say there are no hard times anymore.

Here comes Reigns.

They come face to face.  The Dude, and The Guy.

Last night was not Roman’s night, but it was Dean’s night.  So he wants to know if Dean would have cashed it on him too.

Dean said he would have.

The fans are chanting he can’t wrestle, and Roman brings up the fans who are chanting this should just relax, and sip on your beer.

Reigns wants a title shot, since he has his rematch.

Rollins comes out, he worked so hard for this moment, and he is not settling for this.

He stole the title from Rollins.

Reigns brings up it doesn’t feel good, does it?

Rollins said at least when he cashed in the title shot, he did it his face.

He beat Reigns last night, he won back the title he never was pinned.

Reigns brings up they have an issue, and Rollins said business is done with them.

Here Comes The Money!!  Here Comes The Money.

What’s up Phoenix?

He wants to congratulate Ambrose on winning the WWE World Title last night.

Now there seems to be a way things should be settled for the World Title.  How about Reigns Vs Rollins.  Rollins tells him does Stephanie agree?  Because he needs her permission.

Stephanie is off tonight, so Shane is running the whole show.  So with the Draft taking place next month, these three could very easily be split up, so we have this match tonight.

Rollins Vs Reigns.

Also tonight, AJ Styles is here, also tonight, Paige Vs Charlotte for the WWE Women’s Championship.  But next, it will be Owens Vs Zayn.

Lebron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Championship last night.  Lebron was wearing an Ultimate Warrior T-shirt earlier today, and Kevin Love wore an Austin 3:16 T-shirt, with the “Smoking Skulls” title.  HHH is rewarding the Cavs WWE World Heavyweight Title replicas.

Owens Vs Zayn is now.

Zayn wins with a rollup, countering a Pop-Up Powerbomb attempt.  Owens is beside himself.

So now Owens attacks Zayn.

Sami counters this, and lays out Owens.

I say we do a rematch, right now, inside a steel cage.

Tonight, Rollins Vs Reigns.  Winner faces the World Heavyweight Champion at Battleground.

WWE Smackdown, on July 19th, they will have another brand draft.

“People Power” comes out, the former GM John Laurinaitis comes out, to hardly any noise.

His name is Mr. John Laurinaitis, he is the former Vice President of Talent Relations.  And he is the former General Manager of Smackdown and Raw, at the same time.

Shane O’ Mac comes out.

“Big Johnny” is throwing his hat to run Smackdown.

Shane is not interested.  The person running Smackdown is about change.  It won’t be an authority figure.  It will be someone who thinks about the people.

It will be Shane, who is running Smackdown.

Johnny wants to run Raw, but Shane chases him out of the area.

Here comes Enzo and Big Cass.

My name is Enzo Amore, a bona fide g and a certified stud, and you can’t teach that.

This guy right here is Big Cass.  He is 7 foot tall, and you can’t teach that.

Badda boom, the realist guys in the room….

How Ya Doin’?

Big Johnny might have been a Dynamic dude in his era.  But this is the new era, and there is one word to describe Big Johnny, and he will spell it out for us…

S.A.W.F.T.

Vaudevillains Vs Enzo and Cass, next.

Enzo and Cass win with the Badda Boom Shacka Lacka.  Enzo had some air on his body splash.

AJ Styles is out next, to discuss his win over Cena, last night.

More footage of the Cavs winning, and Love celebrated “Stone Cold” style.

“You don’t want none” as DMX would say, here comes AJ Styles.

The fans seem happy, and AJ wishes he could say the same.  He should be happy, he has been dreaming about this for years.  Then it became a reality.  This dream match was tainted by two guys who were supposed to be like brothers to him.

He beat John Cena.

Let him say it again…AJ Styles best John Cena.

But here is the thing.  This didn’t go down the way he had hoped.  Gallows and Anderson need to come out with a public apology.

AJ is serious, if The Club will continue, Gallows and Anderson need to come out, and apologize to AJ.

Here they come.

Have they not been through a lot together, or what?  They have, and AJ had Cena right where he wanted him.  There will never be another first match with Cena Vs AJ.

They were just trying to help.

AJ signed the contract, and they made him get out of his word, so they look AJ in the eyes, and say they are sorry.

Anderson and Gallows apologized, so are they cool?

Anderson and Gallows need to apologize to one more person.  John Cena himself.

Come on out John, and accept this apology, please?

Here comes Cena.

Cena won’t go to the ring, just stand on the ramp.

An apology?  He doesn’t need one.  They had a contract, AJ broke it.

It’s not AJ’s fault.  He didn’t know they were coming out, so Gallows and Anderson are sorry.

AJ signed the contract, says Karl.  But they did not, and for that, they are sorry.

Cena tells AJ he desperately needed the win, and he did anything necessary.  This should signify a title shot, but he’s not.  He has the club in his hand.  But the truth is, he isn’t as good as he thought.

AJ said Cena is saying this because he isn’t as good as he thinks he is.

Cena said the difference though wins in WWE means the world.  But he goes by two things, balls and his word.  Last night, AJ proved he doesn’t have either.

The Club did John a favor, and Cena said real is real.

The Club did Cena a favor, because he gave him an excuse.  So AJ will give Cena another chance, to face any member of The Club.

Cena said it’s AJ, and Styles said he can face anyone except AJ.  Because AJ has that Stone Cold podcast, and besides, he already beat Cena.

It doesn’t matter, one will be in the ring, the other two will be at ringside.

They know Cena will beat any member, one on one.

AJ said he was wrong, AJ is a man of his word.  It will be Karl Anderson Vs John Cena, one on one.  Again, you’re wrong.  Karl Anderson will knock Cena out, and John isn’t as good as he thinks he is.  Cena is wrong.

And by the way, AJ Styles will be a part of The Stone Cold Podcast, on WWE Network, after Raw.

Anderson Vs Cena, next.

This match ends in a DQ, when AJ and Gallows come out to lay out John.

Styles Clash, bam!!

Last night, Dean Ambrose won Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

And later in the night, Ambrose cashed in his title shot, and won the title.

Earlier tonight, a challenge was issued with Reigns Vs Rollins, the winner faces Ambrose at Battleground.

Jo-Jo is with Seth Rollins.

Tonight, Rollins will face Reigns for the Number One Contender match.

Rollins wants to talk about last night.  He defeated Reigns, and got back his WWE World Heavyweight Title.  He proved he was the better man.  But Ambrose proved to be a cockroach, because of his sneak attack, nailing him in the head with the briefcase.  But that is okay.  Because tonight, he defeat Reigns, and he will go on to Battleground, and take back his title, and prove he is the best of The Shield.

Renee Young is with Becky Lynch.

For the third time, Becky thought someone was her friend attacked her.  So what are her thoughts?

She has more integrity than anyone, but why did Natalya attack her?  She doesn’t know, but from here on, she will give these women one chance, and then….

Natalya attacks her from behind and says for the first time in a long time, Natalya will only take care of herself.

There is your answer, Beck.

Baron Corbin Vs Zack Ryder is now.

End of Days, that is all she wrote.

WWE announced a deal with China, and signed the first Chinese person to a developmental contract, signing Wa-Peng.

Tonight, Charlotte faces Paige for Women’s Championship.

The Wyatt Family are returning, tonight.

Last week, we see Paige defeat Charlotte.

Renee Young is with Paige.

She beat her two times in the last two weeks.  Paige is trying to talk, but Charlotte interrupts.

Charlotte tells Paige when PCB broke up, she rose to the top, while Paige slipped to the bottom.

Paige reminds Charlotte that the ring is her house, and that title will look good on her.

Paige Vs Charlotte for the Women’s Title is now.

Charlotte retains her title, despite the sloppy booking here.  Dana Brooke interferes, and the ref throws her out, but Charlotte wins anyway.

So they throw Paige to the side, and enter “The Boss”.

Sasha Banks is here for one reason, to be the new Women’s Champion.

She knocks out Dana, hits a Bank Statement on Charlotte.  Paige helps Sasha out fighting off Dana.

“The Boss” is back.

Jo-Jo is with Reigns, he makes this short and sweet.  Last night, Rollins was good.  But tonight, he’s here to beat Rollins.

The Wyatts show up…

Phoenix, we’re here.

The fireflies are out, and here come The Wyatt Family.

The crowd is chanting welcome back, and Bray asks if we missed him.

They have been locked away, and punished.  But through it all, they have not forgotten what they stand for.  This is a warning to the back, The Wyatts are stronger than they ever been.

OHHHHHHHH BROTHER BRAY!!!!  DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR, AND CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD FAMOUS 2-TIME TAG TEAM TITLES!!

IT’S A NEW DAY, YES IT IS!!

Bray, he needs to stop talking, they need to take a knee, because they will say what they have been saying for months, Braun does have a big ol’ booty.

Bray needs the power of positivity, because they are the WWE….

Xavier seems to be in a trance.

Bray laughs, and it says they interrupted Bray’s return, but he can see into their future, New Day folds.

Run!!

Lana is out to introduce her man, The United States Champion, Rusev.

Renee Young is with Titus O’ Neil.

Titus doesn’t care about the title, but last night, Rusev disrespected his family, and YOU NEVER DO THAT!!

Titus Vs Rusev is now.

Actually, the match never took place because Titus was so irate, you never disrespect his family.

Coming up next, Reigns Vs Rollins, the winner becomes number one contender.

Live on Smackdown, Tuesday, July 19th, 2016 will be the Draft.  The latest Miz report is here.

Chris Jericho is with Shane McMahon.

Shane has it for Jericho.  He hasn’t liked him in 15 years, and he had a chance to make him Number One Contender to WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Shane tells Chris he had a chance at Extreme Rules, where he lost.  He also lost last night at Money in the Bank.

Shane is a stupid idiot.  He better not draft Jericho, because he’d rather work for 10 Stephanies.  Shane informs Jericho he will work both Raw and Smackdown, so then what?

Ambrose comes out to join commentary.  Reigns Vs Rollins is next.

Both men fail to answer the 10 count.  But here comes Shane McMahon to say this isn’t how we end things.

Dean Ambrose tells Shane he will fight both men, and Shane counters that to say we will have a triple Threat match, at WWE Battleground.

The Shield explode.

Ambrose tells both men he is the WWE World Champion.  Reigns turns Ambrose around, and Dean hits Dirty Deeds.

But then, he comes back and hits another one on Rollins.

The WWE World Champion stands tall, ending this show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A great main event to set the tone for Battleground, but a 3 hour show kills momentum, and it did so again, tonight.

I doubt Raw will go back to two hours though, so what can you do?

Tell me your thoughts on the show.

Later tonight, we will see The Lucha Dragons vs The Dudley Boyz.

Zayn sees Cesaro.  They get on the same page, may the best man win.

MITB Ladder Match is later tonight.

Video is now showing.

Who becomes Money in the Bank winner?  Cesaro?  Zayn?  Owens?  Jericho?  Del Rio?  Ambrose?

Roman Reigns entered the building earlier tonight.

Tom Phillips is with Becky Lynch and Natalya.

These two love each other.  Becky loved Dynamite Kid, Bret Hart, and Mick Foley.

Natalya loves Bret, Shawn Michales, and “Macho Man” Randy Savage.

Lucha Dragons Vs Dudley Boyz is now.

Lucha Dragons pick up the upset win over The Dudley Boyz.

Rollins Vs Reigns video is playing now.

We are live in Vegas, baby.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

We kick the night off with Fatal 4-Way for the Tag Team Titles.

Enzo and Cass Vs Gallows and Anderson Vs The Vaudevillains Vs New Day.

How Ya Doin?

New Day retains the titles, when Kofi and Big E. hit a double team move, and Big E. pins Gotch.

Tom Phillips is with Kevin Owens.  He tries to explain the significance  of Money in the Bank, but is interrupted by Jericho and Del Rio.

This is hilarious, Owens tells them both they say the same things over and over, while he switches things up.

You all want the gift of Jericho, so drink it in, you stupid idiots.

Corbin Vs Ziggler is now.

Corbin wins a good match with End of Days.

Seth Rollins is taping his wrists, and mentally preparing for tonight’s World Title match.

Charlotte and Dana Brooke Vs Natalya and Becky Lynch.

Charlotte and Dana defeated Becky and Natalya, when Dana rammed Becky and Nattie’s heads together, and Charlotte hits Natural Selection for the win.

After the match, Nattie attacks Becky, and turns heel.

Tom Phillips is interviewing Dean Ambrose.

Dean confirms there is no strategy in tonight’s match.  The leader of the jungle is what everything is about.  And the pain they go through will be worth winning MITB Ladder Match.

Does Dean have a preference in who wins WWE World Title match?

Not really, Reigns will have fun beating up on Rollins.  He’s done it before.

Sheamus Vs Crews is now.

Apollo picks up the win, after kicking out on White Noise, and rolling up Sheamus for the pin fall.

Nobody cares about this match though.

Rusev goes to Titus’ kids, and says their father is a loser.  Happy Father’s Day!!

Reigns Vs Rollins, for the WWE World Title is up now.

Seth Rollins wins the WWE World Title clean, with a Pedigree.

Excellent match between these two.

But wait….

Here comes Ambrose.

HE’S CASHING IN!!!!

After he nails Rollins with his briefcase, it’s official.

Dirty Deeds….

1….

2….

3…..

THE NEW WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!

DEAN AMBROSE!!

The Ambrose Era has begun.

The show ends with Ambrose celebrating.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

The three big matches were fantastic, including the main event.  The Shield is one of those factions that truly formed a bond.  And having all 3 win the big title means something.

I don’t understand Natalya going after Becky, and why Becky continues to let that stuff happen.  She needs to go back to being “The Lass Kicker” and less cartoon character.

When was the last time Cena lost clean?  A year ago at MITB?  Reigns clearly put Rollins over, and the ending gives you a preview of what is to come for The Shield Summer.

A big shout-out to the Cleveland Cavaliers winning the NBA Title.  Such an amazing night, and to see any Cleveland team win a championship for the first time in 52 years is historic.

Also, this past week has been tough, I lost my Grandmother on Tuesday morning, when she passed away in her sleep.  She would have loved to see this, but somehow I believe she is.

What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 6/6/16…The Club Hit The Mark

Tonight, Monday Night Raw is dedciated to “The Greatest” Muhammed Ali.  R.I.P.

We kick the show off with the participants of Money in the Bank Ladder match, all standing on ladders.

Kevin talks about they are all famous.  Chris tells us he is the most famous in the ring, and he was famous even before he said it.  It’s why he is the best in the world…

Owens proclaims he is going to win the Money in the Bank contract, but they will all stand in Kevin’s shadow.

Ambrose is ready to fight, but Owens has more to say.

Winning the contract gives Owens a title shot anytime he wants, and he will cash it in, and become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  He will take all comers, except them.

He will even face Waylon Mercy.

Zayn counters and say this is an opportunity.  When he wins, he won’t offer the chance to guys who haven’t competed in 20 years.  Sami will give opportunities to guys who never had chances….

Ambrose wants to fight.

Del Rio tells Owens he has never been the WWE World Champion, and Sami Zayn will never be champion.  Compared to Del Rio, Sami Zayn is a delivery boy.

Cesaro now is talking, but Jericho cuts him off.  He tells us who created Money in the Bank match.  He is the expert in this match.  Cesaro reminded him he has never won.

Jericho said he won one.  Which one?  First one?  No, it’s 6th one.

So Jericho won it in New York?  It’s the stupid one.

So it’s your own home town?  He’s from Winnipeg, you stupid idiot.

Just being in this match with jericho puts all of them on a different level.  So he wants us all to drink it in, the gift of Jericho.

Ambrose punches him, and the fight is on.

Wait a second, it’s the return of Teddy Long!!

Teddy informs us Smackdown is coming live to Tuesdays.  So he is here to take the longest running TV show

But he doesn’t work here anymore, you stupid idiot.

Teddy tells us if he is in charge, this would be a Triple Threat, Fatal 4-Way, DQ, there must be a winner match.

What?

Stephanie McMahon comes out, Teddy tells her he wants to run Smackdown “baby girl”.

Steph tells us she will keep that in advisement, but will not make the decision tonight.

Teddy wants to talk to Shane.  But Shane O’ Mac isn’t here tonight, so get a stepping, and don’t hit his music.

These six men want to be in action?  3 singles matches will take place tonight.  Sami Zayn Vs Alberto Del Rio.  Dean Ambrose Vs Kevin Owens.  But next, it’s Cesaro Vs Jericho.

Cesaro defeated Jericho with the Sharpshooter.  This might be Cesaro’s biggest win of his career, certainly the biggest in his WWE career.

Money in the Bank is 13 days away.

Last week, footage of John Cena coming back, and AJ Styles made a statement, with his club.

In 13 days, John Cena will face AJ Styles, one on one.

Also, The New Day Vs The Club in a 6-man tag match.

But next, the journey of Seth Rollins Vs Roman Reigns.

Footage of the wrestlers who shared tweets of the passing of Muhammed Ali.

An awesome video footage of Seth Rollins, and his journey to recovery is now.

I am so ready for Rollins Vs Reigns at Money in the Bank.

Lana wants us to welcome a true American Hero, “The Bulgarian Brute” Rusev.

It’s Rusev Vs Swagger, with Titus O’ Neil at commentary.

Rusev runs Swagger into Titus, and Swagger is counted out.  But after the match, Titus and Swagger fight Rusev, and send him out of the ring.

In 2 weeks, Cena Vs AJ Styles.  We will hear from Cena, next.

We had something special, excitement, and electricity.  Because for the first time last week, we had John Cena and AJ Styles in the same ring.

We usually have the Let’s Go Cena/Cena Sucks chants.

Half of you guys have Cena’s back, half don’t want him back.  But what we had for an amazing two minutes was Let’s Go Cena/AJ Styles.

John has had a lot of moments in this company, but the only other time he had this much energy was with The Rock.  For many of you, you all thought this would never happen.  For 15 years, we always thought what if.  But now that they have this moment, he wants to know why AJ, why?  Why did he take the easy way out, so may we have AJ Styles, to explain himself.

You don’t want some….says DMX.

He comes out with Gallows and Anderson.

They already want it, you did not need The Bullet Club.  So why did you do it?

AJ had a plan, and that plan was to get in the ring, shake your hand, and then punch you in the face.  Cena insults Styles.  He is very good in the mic, he does very well in the movies not starring him.  But he insults him when the bell rings.  Even on your best day John, you can’t beat Styles.

His kids ask him why he never faces Cena, and he tells them it’s simple, if they wrestled, AJ would run circles around him.

Cena is not impressed by this answer.  His jokes are about as outdated as his jorts.  He sees a guy who worked for 2 decades making his mark in the WWE.  He made an appearance of Royal Rumble, and he failed.  He received a World Title shot, he failed.  Then he gets another shot, and fails again.  His cronies had told him how great he is for 15 years, yet he fails.  Cena wants to make this clear, Styles couldn’t get past Roman Reigns, and he thinks he can get past Cena?  He doesn’t know who he is dealing with.

Styles has been all over the world, he has been in Japan, and if he goes back, he would sell-out, just like that,  Desperate?  Styles has nothing to lose, and that makes him dangerous.

So Cena wants to know why is it not Cena vs Styles, but Cena Vs The Club.

It’s simple everyone knows that when guys like AJ gets in the ring with Cena, John buries him.  So these guys will make sure his head isn’t buried in the sand.  John, you have no idea who you’re dealing with.

All three men head to the ring.

New Day come out, to back up Cena.

Tonight, New Day Vs The Club in 6-man action.

The Vaudevillains are facing Enzo and Cass, now.

A certified G, and a bonafide stud.  And you can’t teach that.  And Big Cass is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.  Badda Boom, realest guys in the room….

HOW YA DOING??

And we get a DQ, because Cass has lost it, because those villains tried to hurt Enzo again.  He takes care of The Vaudevillains.

Sami Zayn is taping up, and Tom Phillips wants to hear his thoughts.  Does he consider Sami the underdog in Del Rio’s match?

Yes, because Del Rio is the only competitor who has won Money in the Bank before.  But he believes he can beat him.

Del Rio interrupts him, and says Sami winning MITB would make those doubters wrong, si?  Those dreams are for Del Rio, because Sami will always be a perro, a filthy, infested paper boy.

Their match is next.

More tweets from the wrestlers about Ali.

Stephanie is being interrupted by Teddy.

If he was running Smackdown, which he isn’t, but he would cease the moment.  He suggests that at Money in the Bank, we have a Fatal 4-Way for the Tag Titles, with Enzo and Cass Vs Vaudevillains Vs Gallows and Anderson vs New Day.

And Teddy slipped the dolla dolla to security to get himself in.

Stephanie orders a Fatal 4-way set for Money in the Bank at Money in the Bank.

Del Rio Vs Zayn is now.

Del Rio beats him, like that with his kick to the head.

We go straight to a Owens and Ambrose promo.

Owens seems concerned about Ambrose, because he seems a bit “off” lately.

Up next, more video from Roman Reigns.

“The Guy” Vs “The Architect” in 13 days.

But now, we have Ambrose Vs Owens.

Ambrose wins with Dirty Deeds, and Owens knocks him over a ladder.

Tonight, 6-man tag match, with The Club Vs The New Day.

The Women’s Champ Charlotte comes out with Dana Brooke.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Impact Wrestling 5/31/16…Pick Your Poison

We are 2 weeks away from Slammiversary, with the show being centered around Drew Galloway and Lashey.  The two will lock horns at Slammiversary.

Impact Wrestling is now.

Dixie Carter is backstage, telling someone there has to be control tonight.  She vouched for her,and she promised he would do the right thing.  This person is in charge of tonight’s Impact.

We see last week, Jeff Hardy winning the ladder match to ensure he faces Matt Hardy at Slammiversary.  EC3 defeated Matt Hardy by DQ, but he doesn’t face “The Miracle” Mike Bennett at Slammiversary.

Mike Bennett and Maria come to the ring.

So according to Dixie Carter, things got a little out of hand.  She put someone in charge of tonight’s show.  He knows it’s not Mike, or his wife.  He gave her all of his social media accounts, and he never heard from Dixie.

Maria is the leader of the Knockout Division, if it’s anyone who should be in charge, it should be Maria.

Whoever is in charge, come on….

Trouble….Trouble….Trouble….

EC3 is in charge, tonight.

Mike Bennett beats EC3, and they had a deal for a rematch, but Mike reneged on that deal, which brings him to Slammiversary….Mike Bennett Vs EC3.  EC3 wants Mike 100%, so he is giving him the night off.  So he can be at his very best, that he comes out, to be defeated.

Mike tells EC3 every time he steps in the ring, the ratings go through the roof.  But that is fine, Mike will take the night off.

But wait, a night off from wrestling, but not from working.

He asks for Kenny Smith the director of custodian directions, to get the tools.  It was “Taco Tuesday” in catering, so he has Mike clean the toilets.

Maria tells him he can’t do that, but he can.  He upset Impact directors, so they brought him out to alleviate the issues at hand.  We will have a job evaluation, with Gail Kim coming out here.  We will find out if she keeps her job, or spoiler alert, she gets fired.

EC3 is done with them, so leave this ring.

Michael refuses, and EC3 orders him to leave the ring.

He will leave, but only because Mike wants to leave.

Na na na chant from the crowd.

Here comes Lashley.

Ethan, they keep meeting like this.  Ethan keeps messing in his business.  So Lashley will mess in him.  One day, the two will meet up, so Lashley can spear his ass.

EC3 tells Lashley that will be a hell of a match someday, but tonight, Drew Gallaway will intervene, and choose Lashley’s opponent.

Pick Your Poison, tonight.

We come back, and see Mike Bennett having some trouble cleaning the toilets.

Drew Galloway and Lashley are in the ring.  Drew chooses Bram as Lashley’s opponent.

The match is now.

Lashley is DQ’d in the match, and he hits a spear on Bram after the match.  He delivers another spear.

Drew Galloway brings a chair to the ring, to save Bram.

Drew chases after Lashley.

Eli Drake, he has the briefcase.

He’s cashing in his King of the Mountain Championship.

Eli hits a knee to the head, and pins Bram to be the new King of the Mountain Champion.

Earlier today, The Bromans are with Raquel.  They need to focus to keep their eyes on the prize.

Michael Bennett is still cleaning the toilets.

Oh boy, Earl Hebner is out of the toilet, so Mike needs to clean that toilet.  He disrespect Earl, and EC3 calls for Mike to be a ref for the next match.

We are at Cameron, North Carolina.  Our cameras were on hand for the contract signing, of Hardy vs Hardy at Slammiversary.

Eli Drake is the new King of the Mountain champion, and he has some champagne to celebrate with everyone.  Very nice of him.

Video footage from Cameron, North Carolina.

Matt Hardy, with a new look.

“The Miracle” Mike Bennett is the referee.

The match is Rockstar Spud and Tyrus against The Bromans.

The winner gets Tag Team Shot at Slammiversary.

They have Raquel with them.

The Bromans wins with The Bro-Down, and Spud taps out to The Adonis Clutch.

Maria is on the phone with Billy Corgan, but EC3 interrupts the call.  EC3 will mediate the entire Maria-Gail Kim scenario, next.

Maria comes to the ring, with her apprentice Allie with her, and her enforcer Sienna.

Allie tells us the first lady of professional wrestling cannot do her job without them.

EC3 shoos them out of the ring, and Maria tells him he can’t talk to them like that.

More Na Na Na Hey hey Good-bye, as they leave.

Maria is doing a wonderful job as leaders of the Knockouts.

EC3 disagrees, but the real opinion is Gail Kim.

Maria tells us let the wrestlers talk, because if they were in charge, there would be anarchy.

EC3 tell us Maria thinks she is doing a good job.  Gail does not, so what does Gail want?

Gail wants a match with Maria, one on one, and she wants it at Slammiversary.

Let Maria remind us she is Gail’s leader, so as her leader, she says no.

But EC3 is in charge, and he calls for Maria vs Gail Kim, at Slammiversary.

Maria is trying to build a future for the Knockouts Division.  At Slammiversary, it will be the worst night of her life.  Because she will submit herself in the TNA Hall of Fame, when she kicks her ass.

EC3 sees Gail Kim dressed to compete, Maria’s apprentices are dressed to compete.  Gail Kim has a partner, and that partner is the Knockout Champion, Jade.

That is next.

Allie is pinned from a Package Piledriver by Jade.  She and Gail win the match.

Jeff has entered the Hardy house.  Reby is taking the kid to leave.  Matt has flipped the lid.

Matt still has his accent.

Mike Bennett comes to the ring, Maria refuses to leave.

This game Ethan is over.  EC3’s aunt Dixie doesn’t know what she has in them.  Mike is a wrestler, not his wife.  He is the best wrestler in the damn world.  This is through.

EC3 said Mike is a wrestler, he has an opponent, and it would be a “miracle” if he shows up sober.

Sorry About Your Damn Luck.

James Storm heads to the ring, in his brewser cruiser.

The match is now.

Maria slaps Storm in the face, and Bennett rolls up Storm for the win.

EC3 tells Michael the game is over, the nonsense is over.  The fact is Slammiversary.  Bennett calls himself God, EC3 is the devil.  He comes to his church God, he burns it down, God.  But he leaves Mike with this, a kick to the face.

Last Call by Storm.

Still to come, who will Drew Galloway face?

Al Snow is in the ring, he runs down American fans, and says he brought new talent from London, England.  Their names are The Tribula.

He shows footage of last week beating Grado with one move, his Snow Plow.  But Grado comes out with Mahibab Sheara, calling him a liar.  He used weapons last week, even Grado’s own fanny pack.  He had The Tribula come out and interfere too.

Now we get some Mom jokes, and now all four men fight, but Al helps his new team.

Anyway, Lashley chooses Galloway’s opponent, next.

We see an interview setup of Braxton Sutter.  He is excited about having a TNA contract.

He now has an opportunity, he wants to be World Heavyweight Champion.

Slammiversary rundown.

Hardy Vs Hardy video now.

They are inside the very first Omega ring, and I guess we end the show with that footage.

But now, who is Drew Galloway facing tonight?

Lashley tells us Drew’s opponent tonight are The Decay.

Drew more or less faced all 3 members.  But Lashley came out to try to spear him, but Drew leaped up, and Lashley speared Abyss.  The champ then hits a Future Shock DDT, and pins Crazzy Steve.

12 days away from Lashley Vs Drew.

And now video footage of the Hardy contract signing.

Matt signs the contract, Reby comes back, but she had a baby doll.  And Matt nails a Side Effect through the table.

It’s over, done.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I picked the wrong week to start watching Impact again.  After hearing about how good last week’s show was, I gave this a chance.  Just a bad show.

Do you agree?  Send me your thoughts here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Monday Night Raw 5/30/16…John Cena Returns

Before we start the show, I want to thank the men and women who have served for our country, in the past and present.  Never forget the ones who have sacrificed to protect us.

Tonight’s Raw should be big, not only are we going to have the return of John Cena, but we also will see something “hatch” apparently.

Raw is now.

Lilian Garcia kicks the show off by giving us the 10 bell salute, for men and women who have defended our honor.

Awesome video to remind us about the ones we have lost, and to always honor the men and women, in uniform.

Tonight is the night as we get the opening theme.

We are live in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

HERE COMES THE MONEY….HERE COMES THE MONEY!!

And before Shane says anything, here comes Stephanie.

It’s a McMahon Family Reunion here.

Stephanie tells Shane let’s get this started.

WELCOME TO MONDAY NIGHT RAW!!

Steph talks, and nobody wants to listen.

What’s up Green Bay!!

Shane tells us it’s time to shake things up.  Smackdown is going live on Tuesday July 19th, on USA Network.  It’s coming to Tuesday nights.

Steph tells us that is Smackdown, but this is Raw.  Tonight, we will see the return of John Cena.

OHHHHHH TITLETOWN!!!  DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR, IT’S TIME TO CLAP FOR YOU WORLD FAMOUS 2-TIME WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!

It’s a New Day, yes it is.

New Day is excited about the move to Smackdown, live.  But as excited as they were, excitement turned to paranoia.

Social Media write-ups about brand extension.

Shane tell us there will be a unique roster for Raw and Smackdown.

The New Day is about the new era.  Kofi is new era through and through.

But Big E and Xavier are poking fun at that.

But the question everyone want to know is where are The New Day going?

Stephanie informs them they haven’t decided yet.  But New Day are accusing her of dodging the question.

You can’t possibly think about breaking up The New Day.  They are your WWE Tag Team Champions.

Shane tells them there is anything not on the table.

Hold on, there is a chance they will break up The New Day?  This can’t happen, think of the kids.  And Francesca II.  She can’t handle to be away from all 3 of her parents.

Stephanie tells them things haven’t been discussed yet.

But who runs Raw?

Who?

Who?

Who?

Steph assures them everything will work out.  But there seems to be a bit of a sibling rivalry.  But here is what they do to solve things….a dance challenge.

And now we will have our dance challenge.

Shane gives us his best dance.

Now it’s Stephanie’s turn.

She is about to dance, but here comes The Vaudevillains to ruin things.

The Vaudevillains Vs The New Day in a non-title match, next.

Gallows and Anderson attack The new Day, so Vaudevillains are DQ’d.  They come into the ring, but Vaudevillains tell them to have at it, and they nail Big E with Magic Killer.

Gallows and Anderson made a statement.

Renee Young is with Anderson and Gallows.  Gallows tell us this was a message to say they aren’t going anywhere.  Anderson reiterates they are just getting started.

We see footage from last Monday when Sheamus attacks Apollo Crews.

Apollo is doing push-ups, and someone approaches him.  It’s Big Show.  He assures Apollo he’s not here to hurt him.  Apollo wants to take out Sheamus, so Big Show tries to give him some advice.

Sheamus is afraid to lose his spot.  Sheamus feels Apollo will back down.  So the question is will Apollo back down?

Golden Truth come out together.

The Usos will compete against Breezango.

The Golden Truth are doing commentary.

The Usos win in a pointless match.

Breezango blame The Golden Truth, now all four men start to fight.

We need Gallows and Anderson to come out, and beat the shit out of all four men here.

8 days ago, Seth Rollins made his return.  In 3 weeks, it will be Rollins Vs Reigns, at Money in the Bank.

We will hear from the WWE World Champion, next.

The crowd is mixed here, yet again for Roman.

2 years ago, Seth Rollins sold out, and broke up The Shield.

Ever since then, he has called himself THE man.  But that is funny since he runs away from THE guy every single time, and he has the title to prove he is THE guy.

So if you want to prove you are THE man, come on out, and prove it.

Here comes Seth Rollins, running to the ring, but he thinks twice about it.

Seth has the mic, thinks about saying something, but he decides not to.

Now he is charging to the ring, and again stops.  Laughing at Roman, it will be on his time.  Not Roman’s.

Seth walks away again.

Drops the mic again, and walks away.

3 weeks, we see these two men face off.

Seth charges again, but Roman is ready for him.  Seth screams they do things his way.

John Cena is here tonight.

6-man tag match of all 6 men involved in Money in the Bank ladder match.

Goldberg is a part of the new WWE2K17 game.

Lana is here to introduce us to a “Real American Hero”, and the greatest United States Champion, Rusev.

Rusev Vs Zack Ryder is now.

Rusev wins the match with an Accolade.

Rusev calls himself a better American Hero than any of us.  And here comes Titus O’ Neil.

Titus dares Rusev saying this, on this day….Memorial Day.  Great Americans fight for what they believe in.  He isn’t a Bulgarian brute, he is a Bulgarian chump.  So if he wants to fight, let’s fight.

Titus decks Rusev, and Rusev gets out of the ring.

Next, we see footage from last week, when Charlotte threw her father out of her ring.

The announcers are beside themselves over Charlotte’s actions.

Earlier today, Stephanie catches up with Charlotte.  She is embarrassed with what Charlotte did last week.  Charlotte isn’t stepping down with her, while Steph calls her a waste of talent.

Tonight, Natalya Vs Dana Brooke, one on one.

Another commercial break.

Enzo and Big Cass come out to the ring.

My name is Enzo Amore.  I am a certified G, and a bona-fide stud, and you can’t teach that.  And this man is Big Cass, he’s 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.

Bada Boom, the realest guys in room, how ya doin??

They want some of the Dudleys.

How ya doin?

The Dudley Boyz Vs Enzo and Cass is now.

Enzo and Cass win the match with a Rocket Launcher, pinning Bubba.

Zayn, Ambrose, and Cesaro are talking about strategy.

John Cena returns, next.

The Champ is here.

Cena is very grateful to be back home.  But on this day, it is his duty to honor the heroes who have fallen, and protected our country.

Liberty is freedom, and freedom is our livelihood.  It gives us the honor to cheer for who we want, stand up for what we believe in, dress how we want, and act how we want.  And it is a privilege to say Cena is back on Monday Night Raw.

But this means if he still belongs.  A new era has begun, which means new names, new faces.  So the question is can he still hang with them?  He won’t just roll over, and go away.  Cena will not go quietly away.  And the face that runs this place says this, if the future is now, then the future must go through him.

Enter AJ Styles.

The crowd is half for AJ, and half for Cena.

It is a cool moment here.

AJ has been waiting for this moment his entire life.

AJ said Cena has sort of bad rep, he has been told Cena is always the first into the arena, and the last to leave.  And he has done so much for this company, but here is the thing.  They have been in two different worlds, but here they stand in this ring together.  AJ wanted to be the first to say welcome back.

Cena is hesitant about shaking hands with AJ, but he does.

But here comes Anderson and Gallows.

AJ, as Gallows says, they agreed to go their separate ways.  And he saw what they did to The New Day.  But AJ is sucking up to Cena.

Anderson said they are not here to kiss ass, they are here to kick it.  And that includes AJ.

AJ takes his shirt off, and so does Cena, but AJ turns on Cena, and he is a part of The Club all along.

The Club unites together.

AJ wants him some more, with Gallows and Anderson approve.

Moments ago, we see AJ turn his back on John Cena and laid him out.

Natalya Vs Dana Brooke, now.

Charlotte comes out with Dana.

Dana wins a 3 minute match with a Minshinuko Driver.

They now attack Natalya, and here comes Becky Lynch.

Jo-Jo is with Dolph Ziggler.

We see footage of his match with Baron Corbin at Extreme Rules Kick-Off match.

Ziggler said that Corbin got the best of him, but not the best in him.  When he was a kid, he got into amateur wrestler, and he broke records at Kent State Universe.  Dean Malenko had 1,004 moves, Ziggler has 1,005 moves.  Dolph is the one who steals the show, because he is Dolph Ziggler, and Corbin is not.

Ziggler vs Corbin is next.

We have an amateur wrestling match, but Ziggler kicks Corbin in the balls, causing a DQ.

Ziggler tells us he is DQ’d, and the loser always is Baron Corbin.

6-man tag match is our main event.

The Miz is currently on location, filming The Marine 5:  Battleground, and he will give us updates throughout the weeks.

Jericho, Del Rio, and Owens are talking about who the leader of the match is.

This Thursday night, we will see Charlotte face Becky Lynch.  We will also hear from The Club, this Thursday night on Smackdown.

6-man tag match is now.

Ambrose, Zayn, and Cesaro win when Ambrose pins Owens with Dirty Deeds.

The show ends rather quickly here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Not much here tonight, except seeing Cena back in the WWE, and AJ aligning himself with The Club, setting up a feud against Cena, which makes everyone happy.

Other than that, I hope you had a safe Memorial Day.
